OHL Mexico S.A.B de C.V. (“OHL Mexico” or “the Company”) (BMV: OHLMEX), in terms of article 50, paragraph X of the General Provisions Applicable to Issuers of Securities and other Participants of the Securities Market (Disposiciones de Carácter General Aplicables a las Emisoras de Valores y a Otros Participantes del Mercado de Valores), hereby informs the market that as of yesterday, May 3, 2018, multiple articles have been circulating in the media regarding an alleged lawsuit apparently in connection with certain acquisitions of shares of OHL México (the “Alleged Lawsuit”).
Neither OHL México or IFM have been legally served by any court of the Alleged Lawsuit. Publicly available information suggests that precautionary measures would have been granted ex-parte.
This would not be the first time that Infraiber and/or Mr. Paulo J. Diez Gargari, directly or indirectly, have tried legal actions against IFM, OHL México and/or their subsidiaries, none of which have prospered.
In addition, the Federal Office of the Attorney, dependent of the Ministry of Finance, filed a criminal complaint against Mr. Diez (and others) for disclosing false information to the market regarding OHL México. As a consequence, there is an ongoing criminal federal prosecution.
