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.'
