ICA's Airport Subsidiary OMA Makes Confidential Filing With Mexico's National Banking And Securities Commission

MEXICO CITY, May 16, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Empresas ICA, S.A.B. de C.V. (BMV:ICA) (NYSE:ICA), the largest infrastructure and construction company in Mexico, and Mexican airport operator Grupo Aeroportuario del Centro Norte, S.A.B. de C.V., known as OMA (Nasdaq:OMAB) (BMV:OMA), announced today that OMA has made a confidential filing with the Mexican National Banking and Securities Commission (Comisión Nacional Bancaria y de Valores) relating to the potential future sale of up to 100 million of its Series B shares, without par value, by ICA's indirect wholly owned subsidiary, Aeroinvest, S.A. de C.V.

This filing is intended to allow ICA the flexibility to sell a portion of its shares in OMA should it determine that market and other conditions are appropriate. If ICA decides to go forward with sale of OMA's Series B shares (directly or in the form of American Depositary Shares, ADSs), ICA would receive all proceeds from such sale. In addition, ICA expects to retain a controlling interest in OMA through its ownership of OMA's Series BB shares.

This CNBV filing complements the shelf registration statement on Form F-3 filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on May 15, 2013.

These securities may not be sold nor may offers to buy be accepted prior to the time the National Banking and Securities Commission approves a public offering in Mexico.

This press release may contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, as amended. Such forward-looking statements are subject to various risks and uncertainties and may differ materially from actual results or events due to various factors, including (with respect to ICA) material changes in the performance or terms of its concessions, ability to obtain additional debt or equity financing on attractive terms, developments in legal proceedings, economic and political conditions and government policies in Mexico or elsewhere, inflation and exchange rates, regulatory developments, and customer demand and competition; and (with respect to OMA) governmental regulations governing airport operations, airport concessions, and maximum rates, air traffic volumes, U.S. and global economic activity, fuel prices, terrorist attacks, factors affecting Mexican tourism, and tax claims asserted by municipalities.  These and other risk factors are set forth in ICA's and OMA's most recent filings on Form 20-F and in any filings or submissions the companies have made with the SEC subsequent to their most recent filings on Form 20-F.  All forward-looking statements are based on information available to ICA and OMA on the date hereof, and neither ICA nor OMA assumes any obligation to update such statements.
