Empresas ICA, S.A.B. de C.V.: ICA Signs Agreement With EXI-CK to Finance the Completion of the Palmillas-Apaseo El Grande Tollroad

MEXICO CITY, Feb. 09, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Empresas ICA, S.AB. de C.V.
(BMV:ICA) (NYSE:ICA), the largest infrastructure and construction company in
Mexico, confirmed today that its subsidiary COVIMSA has signed an agreement
with CKD Fomento a la Energía e Infraestructura de México (EXI), through the
EXICK Trust, for a Ps. 750 million convertible loan to provide the resources
required for the completion of the Palmillas-Apaseo El Grande tollroad in the
states of Queretaro and Guanajuato.

Autovía Queretaro, S.A. de C.V., a subsidiary of COVIMSA, holds the 30-year
concession to construction, operate, exploit, preserve, and maintain the
highway.

The Palmillas-Apaseo El Grande tollroad is one of the most important
construction projects in Mexico. The 4-lane, 86 km, high-specification
tollroad in Queretaro and Guanajuato is expected to reduce traffic congestion
resulting from the sustained economic growth of the region.

This agreement ensures all the resources that are required to finalize the
construction and putting into service of the highway. ICA expects that the
construction phase will be completed in September 2016, and the highway will
join ICA's existing portfolio of five operating highways.
