Press Release

Orascom Development signs a preliminary contract with the Government of
Montenegro for the long-term lease of the "Lastavica Island" with the
"Mamula Fortress" in the Bay of Kotor, Montenegro.

Altdorf/Cairo, 25 February 2015 -Orascom Development Holding AG (ODH) and
Montenegro's Minister of Sustainable Development and Tourism, Mr. Branimir
Gvozdenović, signed in Podgorica, Montenegro, a preliminary contract for
the long-term lease of the "Lastavica Island" with the "Mamula Fortress"
which is located in the Bay of Kotor, Montenegro (the "Mamula Project").

The preliminary contract which is currently pending approval from the
Parliament of Montenegro, as well as the final confirmation from the
Government, provides for a 49-year lease period.  The investment in the
Mamula Project is planned to take place via a joint venture company for
which financing has been fully secured between Mr. Samih O. Sawiris and

The Mamula Project's location at the entrance of the Bay of Kotor is very
strategic to ODH's Lustica Bay Project in Montenegro, ultimately creating
several synergies between the two destinations. It will be the first and
only island "hotel/spa/leisure" destination in Montenegro and as a flagship
destination it will highly contribute to ODH's Lustica Bay Project.
Furthermore, it will also provide as an exclusive beach get-away resort to
Lustica Bay's residents and guests.

Once the Parliament of Montenegro approves the long-term lease contract,
the project should be implemented within 18 months after the construction
permit is obtained. The project will definitely add to the economic
benefits of Montenegro as it is expected to create around 200 new jobs and
bring EUR 7.5 million of revenue for the Montenegrin state over a 15-year
