Communiqué by FCC in connection with the Acuamed case

- The Company's claims relate to amounts owed for work that was actually performed. FCC has presented a claim for the amounts due to it, in accordance with the applicable legislation.

- FCC, the Citizen Services Group, is cooperating and will cooperate fully with the justice authorities, as it always does, to assist in clarifying the events. To that end, it will provide all the documentation in its possession to accredit its actions.

- FCC's claims against Acuamed refer mainly to two contracts:

1) Chemical decontamination of the Flix reservoir (Tarragona). This contract dates from 2008 and the work was practically complete in 2015. Final settlement is pending.

2) Bajo Almanzora desalination plant (Almeria). This contract dates from 2006. Construction was completed and the plant came into service on 1 August 2012. The plant subsequently sustained severe damage from floods.

Final settlement of the construction contract and reconstruction of the plant after the flood damage are pending.

There is no connection between this project and the Flix reservoir project.

- FCC will claim payment of these debts before the appropriate authorities.
