OCI Announces Start of Construction Work on IFCo

CAIRO, EGYPT -- (Marketwire) -- 11/20/12 --




Cairo, Egypt / 19 November, 2012 11:00 PM



Orascom Construction Industries Announces the Start of Construction
Work on Iowa Fertilizer Company

Orascom Construction Industries (OCI) announced today that its wholly
owned subsidiary, Iowa Fertilizer Company (IFCo), held a groundbreaking
ceremony to mark the start of construction work on its new greenfield
nitrogen fertilizer production plant in Wever, Iowa. IFCo will be the
first world scale natural gas-based fertilizer plant built in the
United States in nearly 25 years and will help reduce the United
States' dependency upon imported fertilizers.

Featured speakers at the event included Chairman and Chief Executive
Officer (CEO) of OCI Nassef Sawiris, Iowa Governor Terry Branstad,
Director of Iowa Economic Development Authority (IEDA) Debi Durham, and
Lee County Supervisor Larry Kruse.

Governor Branstad commented: "The Iowa Fertilizer Company plant is one
of the largest investments ever in the state of Iowa. I am pleased to
be breaking ground today and moving forward with our efforts to bring
thousands of jobs to this area and to provide our farmers access to
affordable fertilizer. This project will help rejuvenate Lee County
and all of Iowa at a time when it is needed most."

Lieutenant Governor Kim Reynolds commented: "All of Iowa will see and
feel the positive economic impact of this project. Iowa Fertilizer
Company is bringing hundreds of millions of dollars into the state that
will directly benefit local outlets such as public schools. This
groundbreaking marks a step in the right direction for economic growth
and a successful future for the state of Iowa."

OCI Chairman and CEO Nassef Sawiris commented: "In November 2011, Iowa
Fertilizer Company was just an idea. Today, after much hard work by
local and state officials, we celebrate the start of construction work
on our new US$ 1.4 billion fertilizer plant, which represents the
largest investment project ever undertaken in the state. We would also
like to thank the community in Lee County for its support of our
project and reaffirm our commitment to utilize local suppliers,
contractors and workers whenever possible and involve ourselves in this
community."

During the event, IFCo signed an agreement with the ANR Pipeline
Company, a subsidiary of TransCanada Corporation, covering terms for
the long term transportation of natural gas to the plant, an agreement
with Citigroup to serve as the lead underwriter of its bond financing
issuance, and an agreement with Iowa-based McAninch Corporation to
undertake the initial earthmoving and grading works on the site.

The Iowa Finance Authority's Board of Directors unanimously approved
the issuance of up to US$ 1.2 billion in Midwest Disaster Area bonds by
Iowa Fertilizer Company on November 16. As the borrower, IFCo will be
solely responsible for the repaying the debt and the rates and terms of
the bonds will be based on its creditworthiness. The Iowa Department
of Natural Resources approved the issuance of air permits for the new
plant on October 26. The new plant will utilize the best available
emissions control technologies and comply with all state and federal
emissions requirements.

Iowa is the top producer of corn in the United States, and cultivates
over 30 million acres annually. Iowa has the highest use of
nitrogen-based fertilizer in the nation, and IFCo will be well
positioned to satisfy Iowa's demand for nitrogen-based fertilizers.
