Press Release

Orascom Development Holding AG: Board of Directors approved the voluntary
delisting of all Egyptian Depositary Receipts of the company from the Egyptian
Exchange

Altdorf, 27 December 2016- The Board of Directors of Orascom Development Holding
AG (ODH) approved the voluntary delisting of all Egyptian Depositary Receipts
(EDRs) from the Egyptian Exchange on 26 December 2016, subject to obtaining all
necessary regulatory approvals, based on the authorization granted to it by the
Annual General Meeting on 18 May 2015 to take decisions on the listing or
delisting on any stock exchange outside of Switzerland.
 
The decision to delist aims to increase the free float and improve the liquidity
of the company's shares on the SIX Swiss Exchange where ODH maintains its
primary listing and remove the inconsistencies resulting from the listing of
both the EDRs and the shares of ODH's largest subsidiary in Egypt, Orascom
Hotels and Development (OHD), on the Egyptian Exchange, which should potentially
enhance the liquidity and trading volumes of the shares of OHD. 
 
Based on the Board of Directors' approval the company will proceed to make the
required filings and work with the authorities in Egypt and Switzerland to
obtain all necessary approvals to complete the delisting of the EDRs.
