    MEXICO CITY, 2012-04-16 14:00 CEST (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

    Empresas ICA, S.A.B. de C.V. (BMV:ICA) (NYSE:ICA), the largest engineering,

    construction, procurement and infrastructure company in Mexico, announced that

    it acquired the concession for the Barranca Larga-Ventanilla tollroad in the

    state of Oaxaca through a wholly-owned subsidiary. The concession agreement

    with the Ministry of Communications and Transportation (SCT) includes the

    construction, operation, exploitation, and maintenance of the 104 km tollroad

    for a term of 30 years.

    Total investment in the project will be approximately Ps. 5,352 million. The

    contract will be included in ICA's construction backlog during the second

    quarter of 2012 and is expected to be completed in 24 months. The development

    bank Banobras and the National Infrastructure Fund (FONADIN) will be

    participating in the financing. The acquisition is subject to customary

    regulatory approval by the Federal Competition Commission.

    The new tollroad will provide a high-speed communication link between the

    Pacific coast resorts of Huatulco and Puerto Escondido and the capital city of

    Oaxaca. The highway is expected to support additional development of the

    tourist zones and help the economic integration of the inland communities along

    the route. The four-lane highway is expected to cut travel time between Oaxaca

    and Puerto Escondido to approximately 100 minutes.

    Alonso Quintana, ICA's Chief Operating Officer, said, 'The Barranca

    Larga-Ventanilla tollroad is a key project for improving transportation and

    spurring economic development in Oaxaca. The project is another example of

    ICA's ability to execute technically challenging highway projects in a timely

    manner. The highway will be a valuable addition to ICA's portfolio of

    concessioned highways, and strengthen our position as the largest highway

    operator in Mexico.'
