Press Release

Orascom Development Holding (ODH) launches the grand opening of Fanar Hotel in
Salalah Beach, thereby completing the 700-room Phase I of its hotel development
plan in Oman.

Altdorf/Cairo, 9 February 2016 - Muriya, a joint venture between Orascom
Development Holding (70%), and Omran (30%); the tourism development arm of the
Omani Government, successfully completed the 700-room Phase I of the hotel
development plan in Salalah Beach, Oman, making it the largest contributor to
the development of high-end hotels in Oman in the last five years.

Marking the completion of this milestone, Muriya organised a celebration
ceremony held under the auspices of H.E. Sayyid Muhammad bin Sultan Al Busaidi,
Minister of State and Governor of Dhofar and Mr. Samih Sawiris, Chairman of ODH
in participation of government dignitaries, as well as company representatives
and clients. The celebration included the grand opening of the company's third
hotel, the 4-star 218-room Fanar Hotel & Residences.

Samih Sawiris, Chairman of ODH and Muriya which has already invested over USD
500 million said: "I would like to thank the Government of Oman, all its
institutions and especially the Ministry of Tourism led by HE Ahmed Nasser
Al-Mahrizi, Minister of Tourism, for the continuous support. The 6 weekly direct
flights from top European cities to Salalah are bringing around 50,000 tourists
annually benefiting all of Dhofar hotels, while generating a strong traffic flow
for the newly opened, state of the art Salalah Airport."

Mr. Sawiris further stated that the grand opening shows Orascom Development
Holding's commitment to continue building bustling high-end touristic towns,
develop new lifestyle experiences and jobs well beyond the direct employment
within ODH and its hotels.
