SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Levi & Korsinsky, LLP Notifies Shareholders of Cresud Sociedad Anónima Comercial, Inmobiliaria, Financiera y Agropecuaria of Class Action Lawsuit and a Lead Plaintiff Deadline of June 28, 2016 -- CRESY

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - May 16, 2016) - The following statement is being issued by Levi & Korsinsky, LLP:

To: All persons or entities who purchased or otherwise acquired American Depositary Receipts of Cresud Sociedad Anónima Comercial, Inmobiliaria, Financiera y Agropecuaria ("Cresud") (NASDAQ: CRESYbetween May 13, 2015 and December 30, 2015. You are hereby notified that a lawsuit has commenced in the USDC for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. To get more information go to: http://www.zlk.com/pslra/cresud-sociedad.

Cresud is the majority owner of IRSA Inversiones y Representaciones Sociedad Anónima ("IRSA"). Dolphin Netherlands B.V. ("Dolphin") is a subsidiary of IRSA. According to the complaint, throughout the Class Period defendants issued false and misleading statements to investors and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Dolphin does not adequately qualify as a Venture Capital Organization, and therefore, IDB Development Corporation Limited's ("IDBD") $6.7 billion net debt should be consolidated with IRSA's financial statements; (2) as such, Cresud's financial statements failed to consolidate IDBD's $6.7 billion net debt; (3) IRSA's impending consolidation of IDBD's debt would violate IRSA's Global Notes Indenture, as IRSA would be in breach of the "Incurrence of Additional Indebtedness" covenant, which prohibits its EBITDA to interest coverage ratio to be less than 1.75x; and (4) as a result, the Company's public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

If you suffered a loss in Cresud you have until June 28, 2016 to request that the Court appoint you as lead plaintiff. Your ability to share in any recovery doesn't require that you serve as a lead plaintiff. To obtain additional information, contact Joseph E.
