Relevant Event: Aleatica adopts best practices and advances in national measurement of corporate integrity

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]•The indicators that make up the measurement developed by Transparencia Mexicana and Mexicanos against Corruption and Impunity indicate that Aleatica made significant progress in the development,publication and quality of its corporate integrity policies.
• On the scale of 0 to 100 established by the IC500, Aleatica’s score increased by 15.7 points compared to last year. In 2018, it scored 94.1, the highest among the companies evaluated.
• The timeframe for the analysis ended in May 2018. Since then, the company has undertaken additional actions – driven by IFM Investors, its controlling shareholder – tostrengthen its compliance, corporate governance and transparency practices

Aleatica, S.A.B. de C.V. (“Aleatica” or the “Company”) (BMV: “OHLMEX”) informs that, its sustained efforts to implement best practices in transparency,corporate governance and compliance, were reflected in the outcome of the “Corporate Integrity 500” (IC500) measurement. This measurement is prepared jointly by Mexicans Against Corruption and Impunity and Mexican Transparency, two leading civil society organizations.
According to the 2018 edition of the IC500, Aleatica obtained a score of 94.1, measured on a scale of 0 to 100. This measure assesses the existence and publicity of corporate integrity policies of companies. Aleatica obtained the highest score of all the companies evaluated. CONMEX, Aleatica’s subsidiary company that operates the Circuito Exterior Mexiquense, obtained the same score.
Compared to last year’s results, both companies reported significant improvements. Scores for Aleatica and CONMEX increased by 15.7 and 27.4 points, respectively.
Aleatica recently restructured as a pure infrastructure operator, following the global acquisition by IFM Investors in April this year. The company has announced a series of measures aimed at positioning the company as a benchmark in terms of transparency, good corporate governance and compliance.

Some additional steps by Aleatica to strengthen corporate integrity that were implemented after the timeframe of analysis for the development of this measurement, which ended in May 2018, include the appointments of the Global Director of Compliance and Risk Management, the Global Legal Director and, specifically in Mexico, the appointment of three additional separate directors to the Board of Directors of the company. Most of the company’s directors in Mexico are independent.
In September 2018, IFM Investors requested an independent third party review the company’s compliance program, including its internal policies, such as the Code of Ethics and the Anti-Corruption and Bribery Policy; a collaborative framework for transparent publication, in accordance with applicable law, of key concession terms (subject to the consent of the authorities which grant the concessions); and the establishment of a mechanism enabling the Company to seek an independent view in situations where a potential conflict of interest is identified. The independent directors and members of the Aleatica Corporate Practices Committee in Mexico approved that the Company enter into a cooperation agreement with IFM Investors, committing to work together to achieve the stated objectives.
While some of these elements would not be reflected through the indicators that currently make up the measurement, they are key elements in further promoting the full adoption of corporate integrity policies. As such, they reflect the sustained commitment of Aleatica and its controlling shareholder, IFM Investors, to continue strengthening its transparency, anti-corruption policies and good corporate governance.
