(1)

Principal amount of New Bonds due 2048 expected to be issued does not include New Bonds due 2048 that may be issued in exchange for Old Bonds tendered and accepted pursuant to guaranteed delivery procedures prior to the Guaranteed Delivery Date (as defined below).

(2)

Principal amount of Old Bonds that may be tendered pursuant to guaranteed delivery procedures prior to the Guaranteed Delivery Date.

On the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Offering Memorandum, PEMEX expects that it will issue approximately U.S.$1,827,895,000 aggregate principal amount of New Bonds due 2048 as consideration for the Old Bonds expected to be accepted in the Exchange Offers, without taking into account New Bonds due 2048 that may be issued in exchange for Old Bonds reflected in Notices of Guaranteed Delivery received by PEMEX that may be validly tendered by 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on February 9, 2018 (the “Guaranteed Delivery Date“).

In addition to the applicable exchange consideration, eligible holders whose Old Bonds are accepted for exchange will be paid accrued and unpaid interest on such Old Bonds to, but not including, the Settlement Date. Interest will cease to accrue on the Settlement Date for all Old Bonds accepted in the Exchange Offers, including those tendered through the guaranteed delivery procedures. The total amount of accrued and unpaid interest to be paid by PEMEX, together with the total amount of cash to be paid by PEMEX in lieu of fractional amounts of New Bonds due 2048, will be approximately U.S.$10,158,220.93 (excluding amounts payable in respect of Old Bonds that may be tendered pursuant to guaranteed delivery procedures by the Guaranteed Delivery Date). The actual aggregate principal amounts of New Bonds due 2048 that will be issued, and the total amount of accrued and unpaid interest that will be paid, on the Settlement Date are subject to change based on deliveries under the guaranteed delivery procedures and final validation of tenders. PEMEX will not receive any cash proceeds from the Exchange Offers.

As previously announced, PEMEX is conducting a concurrent offering (the “New Money Offering“) of U.S.$2,500,000,000 aggregate principal amount of its 5.350% Notes due 2028 (the “2028 Notes“) and U.S.$1,500,000,000 aggregate principal amount of its 6.350% Bonds due 2048 (the “New Money 2048 Bonds” and, together with the 2028 Notes, the “New Money Securities“). The New Money 2048 Bonds will have identical terms to the New Bonds due 2048 (together the “2048 Bonds“) to be issued and exchanged for Old Bonds validly tendered in the Exchange Offers. The pricing terms of the New Bonds due 2048 were announced by PEMEX on February 2, 2018.

Considering the principal amount of New Money 2048 Bonds to be issued by PEMEX in the New Money Offering, the aggregate principal amount of 2048 Bonds expected to be issued by PEMEX will be U.S.$3,327,895,000, without taking into account New Bonds due 2048 that may be issued in exchange for Old Bonds reflected in Notices of Guaranteed Delivery received by PEMEX that may be validly tendered by the Guaranteed Delivery Date.

All conditions to consummate the Exchange Offers, including the absence of certain adverse legal and market developments, are expected to be satisfied on the Settlement Date.

The New Bonds due 2048 and the New Money Securities have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act“) or any state securities laws. Therefore, the New Bonds due 2048 and the New Money Securities may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and any applicable state securities laws. PEMEX will enter into a registration rights agreement with respect to the New Bonds due 2048 and the New Money Securities.

Only holders who had completed and returned an eligibility letter certifying that they were either (1) “qualified institutional buyers” (“QIBs“) as defined in Rule 144A under the Securities Act or (2) non-”U.S. persons” (as defined in Rule 902 under the Securities Act) located outside of the United States, and who are Non-U.S. Qualified Offerees (as defined in the Offering Memorandum), were authorized to receive the Offering Memorandum and to participate in the Exchange Offers.

Global Bondholder Services Corporation is acting as the Information Agent and the Exchange Agent for the Exchange Offers. Questions or requests for assistance related to the Exchange Offers or for additional copies of the Exchange Offer Documents may be directed to Global Bondholder Services Corporation at (866) 470-4500 (toll free) or (212) 430-3774 (collect). You may also contact your broker, dealer, commercial bank, trust company or other nominee for assistance concerning the Exchange Offers. The Exchange Offer Documents can be accessed at the following link: http://gbsc-usa.com/eligibility/Pemex.

Retail Tender Offers

As previously announced, PEMEX concurrently conducted offers to purchase for cash (the “Retail Tender Offers” and together with the Exchange Offers, the “Offers“) the Old Bonds. The Retail Tender Offers were made pursuant to the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase dated February 1, 2018 (the “Offer to Purchase” as amended and supplemented, and, together with the accompanying certification instructions letter and notice of guaranteed delivery, the “Retail Tender Offer Documents“).

The Retail Tender Offers expired at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on the Expiration Date. The settlement date with respect to the Retail Tender Offers will occur promptly following the Expiration Date and is expected to occur on the Settlement Date.

Holders that were either (i) QIBs or (ii) persons outside the United States who were non-”U.S. persons” (as defined in Rule 902 under the Securities Act), and who were Non-U.S. Qualified Offerees, were not eligible to participate in the Retail Tender Offers. All other holders of Old Bonds were eligible to participate in the Retail Tender Offers (such other holders, the “Retail Tender Offer Qualified Holders“). Holders of Old Bonds participating in the Retail Tender Offers were required to certify that they were Retail Tender Offer Qualified Holders. PEMEX is reviewing and verifying a number of submissions that are expected to be rejected, at PEMEX’s sole discretion, on the basis of a reasonable belief that the relevant Old Bonds were tendered by holders who were not eligible to participate in the Retail Tender Offers. A press release announcing the final results of the Retail Tender Offers, together with the final results of the Exchange Offers, is expected to be issued promptly after the Settlement Date.

Global Bondholder Services Corporation is also acting as the Information Agent and the Tender Agent for the Retail Tender Offers. Questions or requests for assistance related to the Retail Tender Offers or for additional copies of the Retail Tender Offer Documents may be directed to Global Bondholder Services Corporation at (866) 470-4500 (toll free) or (212) 430-3774 (collect). You may also contact your broker, dealer, commercial bank, trust company or other nominee for assistance concerning the Retail Tender Offers. The Retail Tender Offer Documents can be accessed at the following link: http://www.gbsc-usa.com/Pemex/.

This announcement is for informational purposes only. This announcement is not an offer to purchase or a solicitation of an offer to purchase any Old Bonds. The Offers are not being made to holders of Old Bonds in any jurisdiction in which the making or acceptance thereof would not be in compliance with the securities, blue sky or other laws of such jurisdiction. In any jurisdiction in which the securities laws or blue sky laws require the Offers to be made by a licensed broker or dealer, the Offers will be deemed to be made on behalf of PEMEX by the dealer managers for the Offers or one or more registered brokers or dealers that are licensed under the laws of such jurisdiction.

The New Bonds due 2048 and the New Money Securities are not intended to be offered, sold or otherwise made available to and should not be offered, sold or otherwise made available to any retail investor in the European Economic Area (“EEA”).

Consequently, no key information document required by Regulation (EU) No 1286/2014 (as amended, the “PRIIPs Regulation”) for offering or selling the New Bonds due 2048 and the New Money Securities or otherwise making them available to retail investors in the EEA has been prepared and therefore offering or selling the New Bonds due 2048 and the New Money Securities or otherwise making them available to any retail investor in the EEA may be unlawful under the PRIIPs Regulation.

This communication and any other documents or materials relating to the Offers have not been approved by an authorized person for the purposes of Section 21 of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000, as amended (the “FSMA”).

This communication is directed only at Relevant Persons and must not be acted on or relied on by persons who are not Relevant Persons. Any investment or investment activity to which this communication relates is available only to Relevant Persons and will be engaged in only with Relevant Persons.
