ALFA S.A.B. de C.V.

Newpek transferred its assets in Texas to Ensign Operating LLC ("Ensign") and Reliance Eagleford Upstream Holding LP ("Reliance") in exchange for a complete cancellation of its obligations in the joint venture and operating contracts.

At the close of 2Q20, EFS and Edwards had a total of 591 wells connected to sales.

In line with ALFA's strategy to divest Oil & Gas assets outside Mexico, Newpek also closed its administrative office in Irving, Texas and moved remaining functions to Monterrey, Mexico.

This transaction is also aligned with ALFA's recent announcement to unlock its high underlying value potential through a gradual and orderly process towards fully independent subsidiaries; versus the current conglomerate structure.
