The New Notes will be unconditionally guaranteed by Andrade Gutierrez Engenharia S.A. ("AG Engenharia"), Andrade Gutierrez Investimentos em Engenharia S.A.

(1)

Per U.S.$1,000 principal amount of Old Notes.

(2)

Consists of the consideration payable to Eligible Holders who validly tender (and do not validly withdraw) their Old Notes after the Early Participation Date but at or prior to the Expiration Date, not including Accrued Interest on the Old Notes, which will be paid in cash on the Final Settlement Date.

(3)

Consists of the consideration payable to Eligible Holders who validly tender (and do not validly withdraw) their Old Notes at or prior to the Early Participation Date, not including Accrued Interest on the Old Notes, which will be paid in cash on the Early Settlement Date.

Concurrently with the Exchange Offer, the Issuer solicited consents in order to, among other things, (i) eliminate substantially all of the restrictive covenants, (ii) reduce the minimum notice period required in connection with the redemption of the Old Notes from 30 days to three business days for any Old Notes that remain outstanding after the Exchange Offer, (iii) direct the trustee for the Old Notes to direct the collateral agent for the Old Notes to enter into (x) a pari passu intercreditor agreement (substantially in the form attached as Annex C to the Exchange Offering Memorandum and Consent Solicitation Statement) with the collateral agent for the New Notes, the authorized representative for the New Notes, the authorized representative for the Old Notes, the Issuer, AG Engenharia and AGIE that will govern the relative rights of the Old Notes, the New Notes and any other Additional First Lien Obligations with respect to the AGE Collateral and (y) the Amended AGE Collateral Agreement and (iv) release the CCR Collateral securing the Old Notes (the "Proposed Amendments"). Adoption of the Proposed Amendments to the Old Notes Indenture requires the consent of the holders of at least 75% in aggregate principal amount of the Old Notes (the "Requisite Consents"). The Issuer announced today (i) that the Voting Condition Threshold has been met and the Requisite Consents were received from Eligible Holders to execute the supplemental indenture to implement the Proposed Amendments pursuant to the Exchange Offering Memorandum and the Consent Solicitation Statement, and the Issuer shall enter into a supplemental indenture, to be dated December 9, 2019, to the Old Notes Indenture to implement the Proposed Amendments and (ii) the Financing Condition has been met.

The Exchange Offer will expire at 11:59 p.m. (New York City time) on December 17, 2019, unless extended (such time and date, as it may be extended, the "Expiration Date"). Eligible Holders who validly tender Old Notes after the Early Participation Date but at or prior to the Expiration Date in the manner described herein will not be eligible to receive the Early Participation Premium and will therefore only be eligible to receive the Exchange Offer Consideration of U.S.$975.00 for each U.S.$1,000 principal amount of Old Notes validly tendered, plus Accrued Interest.

The "Total Exchange Consideration" for each U.S.$1,000 principal amount of Old Notes validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) at or prior to the Early Participation Date pursuant to the Exchange Offer will be U.S.$1,025.00 in New Notes, which includes an early participation premium equal to U.S.$50.00 in New Notes (the "Early Participation Premium") per U.S.$1,000 principal amount of Old Notes validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn).  Any Eligible Holders who validly tender Old Notes after the Early Participation Date but at or prior to the Expiration Date will not be entitled to receive the Early Participation Premium and will therefore be entitled to receive, for each U.S.$1,000 principal amount of Old Notes validly tendered, U.S.$975.00 , plus Accrued Interest, which does not include the Early Participation Premium that was payable to Eligible Holders who tendered on or prior to the Early Participation Date. As the Withdrawal and Revocation Date of 5:00 p.m. (New York City time) on December 3, 2019 has passed, previously tendered Old Notes or Old Notes tendered after such Withdrawal and Revocation Date cannot be withdrawn and consents may no longer be revoked, other than in the limited circumstances set forth in the Exchange Offering Memorandum and Consent Solicitation Statement.

The Issuer expects to settle the Old Notes validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) at or prior to the Expiration Date promptly following the Expiration Date, or December 19, 2019 (the "Final Settlement Date"), unless the Expiration Date is extended.
