Panama City Press Release

  1. 1. For Immediate Release: ALLEGIANCE CAPITAL ASSEMBLES CONSORTIUM FOR PANAMA CITY METRO LINE ONE PROJECT Pre-qualification decision expected March 17 Dallas – March 16, 2010 – Allegiance Capital Corporation (ACC), an international investment banking firm, has facilitated the formation of a consortium of Spanish, Chinese and Panamanian companies that is bidding on the Metro Line One project in Panama City, Panama, a $1.5 billion infrastructure project scheduled for completion by December 31, 2013. The consortium is currently participating in the pre-qualification process being undertaken by all of the bidders for the project. A decision on pre-qualification is expected tomorrow, March 17. “We have worked to assemble a select group of companies who have demonstrated exceptional capabilities and have high-profile infrastructure projects in their portfolios,” said Johann Tse, Allegiance Capital Vice President. “We believe this consortium can deliver the quality Panama City is looking for in Metro Line One and also the on-time, on-budget completion.” Members of the consortium have built metro systems, high speed railways, bridges, highways and tunnels, and also offer significant experience in operating and managing local labor. Jesús Arranz Monje, Managing Director of consortium member Grupo Pantersa of Spain, said, “We are very excited that our Chinese partners are part of the consortium as they bring unparalleled competency and experience to the project. Our Chinese partners have constructed many mass transit systems, high speed railways, tunnels and bridges, more than any other country in the world, within a very short period of time. That’s a unique track record that indicates the quality we can bring if we win the bid.” Page 1of 2
