CNH International Receives Award at Belagro Show in Belarus

CNH Agricultural Brands Participate at the Show for the First Time With a Wide Product Display

LUGANO, SWITZERLAND--(Marketwire - June 27, 2008) - Belagro, the most important agricultural show in Belarus, takes place annually in Minsk to answer the growing demand for agricultural equipment in the country. At its 18th edition, Belagro attracted thousands of visitors from all over the world, including representatives from Original Equipment Manufacturers and distributors.

CNH International, part of CNH (NYSE: CNH) and Fiat Group (FIA.MI), was present with its agricultural New Holland and Case IH brands, through its newly appointed distributor Convex International. Convex, which took part in the fair for the first time as CNH's distributor, has received a special award from the Belagro show for its active participation and for the stand.

Convex's stand showcased the most competitive products in the market including, the Case IH Magnum 310, the New Holland T9000 and T8000 tractors, the New Holland combine harvesters (CR9080, CS6090) and the FR Self-Propelled Forage Harvester. The FR represents the biggest chopper in the world, offering a new level of power, capacity and comfort. Five new models are available ranging from 424 to 824 horsepower -- the most horsepower users will find anywhere for maximum capacity and with the widest feedrolls and cutterhead in the industry, along with many technological innovations that assure maximum productivity and reliability of the product.

The distributor is committed to becoming market leader in the 300hp plus tractor segment and to increase its position in the 200-300 horsepower segment, counting on the quality and reliability of Case New Holland's wide product offerings, which include also balers, sprayers and seeders. Convex aims to become leader in the combine harvester market as well as in the forage harvester market. The forage harvester market has big potential, as much of Belarus' agricultural production is oriented towards cattle breeding.

CNH International, through its Case IH and New Holland brands, is already among the leaders in the tractor, combine and forage harvester segments in the country.
