("IRSA CP") (the "Existing Notes") for 8.750% Senior Notes due 2028 (the "New Notes") to be issued by IRSA and the cash consideration, as more fully described in the exchange offer memorandum dated May 16, 2022 (as amended, the "Exchange Offer Memorandum"). IRSA hereby extends such expiration date from 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 16, 2022, to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 28, 2022 (such time and date, the "Expiration Date"). Capitalized terms not defined herein shall have the meanings ascribed to them in the Exchange Offer Memorandum.

According to information provided by Morrow Sodali International LLC, the information and exchange agent for the Exchange Offer (the "Information and Exchange Agent"), as of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 16, 2022, US$210,308,500 aggregate principal amount of the Existing Notes (the "Tendered Notes") were validly tendered and were not validly withdrawn, which represents 58.42% of the outstanding aggregate principal amount of the Existing Notes. Of the aggregate principal amount of Tendered Notes, (i) US$118,382,500, representing approximately 56.29% of the principal amount of Tendered Notes, were tendered under Option A, and (ii) US$91,926,000, representing approximately 43.71% of the principal amount of Tendered Notes, were tendered under Option B. If no additional Existing Notes were to be tendered after 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 16, 2022, Eligible Holders who have validly tendered and not validly withdrawn their Existing Notes under Option A prior to or at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 16, 2022, would receive US$532.96 of Pro-Rata A Cash Consideration per US$1,000 principal amount of Existing Notes tendered under Option A. At the Expiration Date, the actual cash consideration to be received by each Eligible Holder whose Existing Notes are accepted in the Exchange Offer will be determined on the basis of the actual participation by Eligible Holders in the Exchange Offer and their selection between Option A and Option B.

Eligible Holders who have not already done so may tender their Existing Notes for exchange until the Expiration Date. The Withdrawal Date occurred on June 2, 2022, and has not been extended. As a result, any Existing Notes validly tendered on or after the date hereof and prior to the Expiration Date may not be withdrawn except in limited circumstances.

General Information

IRSA expects, on July 1st, 2022, which is the third business day after the Expiration Date (as may be extended by IRSA in its sole discretion, the "Settlement Date"), to issue and deliver the applicable principal amount of New Notes and deliver the applicable Exchange Consideration in exchange for any Existing Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn and accepted for exchange, in the amount and manner described in the Exchange Offer Memorandum. IRSA will not be obligated to issue or deliver New Notes or pay any cash amount with respect to the Exchange Offer unless the Exchange Offer is consummated. Eligible Holders of the Existing Notes who are Argentine Entity Offerees or Non-Cooperating Jurisdiction Offerees may be subject to certain tax withholdings resulting from the exchange of their Existing Notes. See "Taxation—Certain Argentine Tax Considerations" in the Exchange Offer Memorandum.

The New Notes are being offered for exchange only (1) to holders of Existing Notes that are "qualified institutional buyers" as defined in Rule 144A under U.S. Securities Act, as amended (the "Securities Act"), in a private transaction in reliance upon the exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act provided by Section 4(a)(2) thereof and (2) outside the United States, to holders of Existing Notes other than "U.S. persons" (as defined in Rule 902 under the Securities Act, "U.S. Persons") and who are not acquiring New Notes for the account or benefit of a U.S. Person, in offshore transactions in compliance with Regulation S under the Securities Act. Only holders who have submitted a duly completed and returned electronic Eligibility Letter certifying that they are within one of the categories described in the immediately preceding sentence are authorized to receive and review the Exchange Offer Memorandum and to participate in the Exchange Offer (such holders, "Eligible Holders").

The Exchange Offer is subject to certain conditions as described in the Exchange Offer Memorandum (including, without limitation, the Minimum Exchange Condition) which are for the sole benefit of IRSA and may be waived by IRSA, in full or in part, in its absolute discretion. Although IRSA has no present intention to do so, it expressly reserves the right to amend or terminate, at any time, the Exchange Offer and to not accept for exchange any Existing Notes not theretofore accepted for exchange. IRSA will give notice of any amendments or termination if required by applicable law.

If you do not exchange your Existing Notes or if you tender Existing Notes that are not accepted for exchange, they will remain outstanding. If IRSA consummates the Exchange Offer, the trading market for your outstanding Existing Notes may be significantly more limited. For a discussion of this and other risks, see "Risk Factors" in the Exchange Offer Memorandum.
