New York, NY, August 25, 2005 – Finacity Corporation (“Finacity”) announced today that on August 22, 2005, in its capacity as Arranger, it facilitated the successful closing and funding of an innovative trade receivables securitization for four subsidiaries of Vitro Plan, S.A. de C.V. (“Vitro Plan”), a majority owned subsidiary of Vitro S.A. de C.V. (“Vitro”) (NYSE: VTO and BMV: VITRO A). Acting as the Arranger, Master Servicer and Bond Administrator, Finacity successfully structured a five-year transaction that provides Vitro Plan with funding for receivables assigned from Vitro Plan subsidiaries Distribuidora Nacional de Vidrio, S.A. de C.V.

The construct developed by Finacity involved the sale of a USD 21.5 million senior tranche to a targeted investor. The fixed-rate senior tranche is rated A.mx by Standard & Poor’s Mexico and is expected to mature in 2010. Finacity has ongoing responsibilities that include performing as the Master Servicer and Bond Administrator. As Bond Administrator, Finacity will generate reports daily for the various constituents: Vitro, investor, rating agency and the regulators in order to provide all parties with visibility to assets, collateral values and receivables performance.

“We are very pleased to have launched a cost-efficient funding that proved compelling to Vitro and the investor. This transaction further demonstrates Vitro’s flexible and creative access to the capital markets,” commented Fabrice Serfati, Vitro’s Finance Manager.
