BUENOS AIRES, Argentina, Sept. 9, 2017

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina, Sept. 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Cresud S.A.C.I.F. y A. (NASDAQ: CRESY, BASE: CRES), today announces results for FY 2017 ended June 30, 2017.

During this year, the Company decided to change the valuation method of investment properties from acquisition cost to fair market value, in accordance with the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). Investment properties includes farms leased to third parties, shopping malls, offices, land reserves and real estate properties from Israel coming from our subsidiary IRSA.

The reason for this change is the need to adjust the valuation of investment property to its fair market value, for its amortized acquisition cost is not reflective of its economic substance.

The Company has recognized the effects of this change in its financial statements for the fourth quarter of 2017 ended June 30, 2017.

   -- We decided to change the valuation method for the investment properties 
      from historical cost to reasonable value, which was reflected in the 
      company's financial statements as of the IVQ of FY17. 
   -- Net result for FY17 registered a gain of ARS 5,028 million compared to a 
      gain of ARS 8,537 million in 2016 mainly explained by lower results from 
      changes in the fair value of investments properties compensated by the 
      results coming from Adama sale and the increase in Clal share price added 
      to the fact that we are consolidating 12 months of 2017 in the Israel 
      Business Center of our subsidiary IRSA compared to 6 months of 2016. 
   -- The 2017 campaign presented good climate conditions in the region, except 
      in Bolivia where climate was adverse. We have planted 203,000 ha and 
      developed 13,326 ha in the region. 
   -- We have sold farms during the year for ARS 479 millones, registering a 
      net gain of ARS 280 million. 
   -- During the year, our subsidiary Brasilagro acquired a farm of 17,566 ha 
      of crop activity in the state of Maranhão for R$ 100 million. 
   -- Our urban properties and investments business observed good operating 
      results in Argentina and Israel Business Center. EBITDA of the rental 
      segments in Argentina increased by 27.8% in the compared year. 
   -- During 2017, IDBD has issued notes in the Israeli market for NIS 1,060 
      million at a fixed rate of 5.40% due 2019 and in July 2017 has issued 
      again notes for NIS 642.1 million at a fixed rate of 5.3% due 2022. Funds 
      were destinated to refinance its short term debt.
