Press Release

Orascom Development (ODH) gives guidance for the Group FY 2015 results and for
the results of its Largest Subsidiary; Orascom Hotels and Development (OHD).

Altdorf/Cairo, March 2016 - Orascom Hotels and Development (OHD), the Group's
largest subsidiary based in Egypt expects to report a 24-26% increase in its
consolidated revenues and approximately double its net profits over the FY 2014
reported figures. The increase in OHD's revenues and profits resulted mainly
from the concluded land sub-development agreements signed in the first 3
quarters of 2015.

The Group expects to report a 20-22% increase in consolidated revenues for the
year 2015 compared to the same period last year. Based on first indications,
Orascom Development expects a net loss in the range of CHF 21-23 million (EGP
168.2-184.2 million) compared to a net profit of CHF 41.9 million (EGP 324
million) in 2014.

The increase in revenues was driven mainly by the positive contribution of the
Group's largest subsidiary, Orascom Hotels and Development (OHD), the new hotel
opening in Oman and the delivery of the first 10 apartment buildings in
Montenegro. The main contributors to the bottom-line losses include: (i) the
increase in ODH's share of losses from Andermatt Swiss Alps (ASA) and Orascom
Housing Communities (OHC), the Group's largest associate (non-consolidated)
companies; (ii) the decrease in the profitability of the hotel's segment in
Egypt as a result of the continued travel bans on Taba and the negative
consequences of the plane crash in the Sinai Peninsula. (iii) prudence-related
additional one-time provisions (iv) and foreign exchange losses due to weakening
of the CHF and the devaluation of the EGP.

The full set of ODH's FY 2015 results will be published on 14 April 2016 and the
full set of OHD's FY 2015 results will be published on 30 March 2016.
