We would like to announce about the new initiative of the government related to subsidy refund on exportation. As you may know, there is some obstacles currently to process the subsidy refund payment from the government which represents a real matter in terms of cash liquidity.

Accordingly, there was recently a new initiative approved by The Prime Minister to process the subsidy refund old balances for payment on five installments during the next five years under some conditions. The most important conditions are:

1.The company should be complied with all the governmental due amounts within the deadlines (such as taxes, customs and social insurance..., etc.) in the previous periods

2.The company should have a clear expansion plan that will increase its investment volume in Egypt through having new production lines and hiring new employees. Also, all the aforementioned procedures should be supported by documents.
