Ref.: Notification of Significant Event:
The company, OBRASCON HUARTE LAIN, S.A. (OHL), in compliance with current legislation, hereby reports the following:
The company has launched today a prospective process to evaluate the possibility to incorporate a significant minority shareholder at its wholly owned subsidiary OHL Concesiones S.A. ("OHL Concesiones").
The potential transaction would materialize through the incorporation of an institutional investor that would support growth and would reinforce the business model that OHL Concesiones has developed with significant success. OHL will maintain in any case a majority stake and control of OHL Concesiones.
The proceeds from the transaction will be allocated by OHL to accelerate the company´s recourse net debt reduction plan, allowing also to reduce OHL´s future capital contribution needs for new concession projects of OHL Concesiones.
The management team of OHL will hold a conference call (conducted in English) for analysts & investors on June 23rd at 9:30 CET / 8:30 GMT.
The details of the conference will be available at www.ohl.es.
