  Law Offices of Howard G. Smith Announces Investigation On Behalf of
  Investors of YPF Sociedad Anonima

Business Wire

BENSALEM, Pa. -- February 8, 2013

Law Offices of Howard G. Smith announces that it is investigating potential
claims against YPF Sociedad Anonima (“YPF” or the “Company”) (NYSE:YPF)
concerning possible violations of federal securities laws. The investigation
focuses on allegations that certain statements issued by YPF in connection
with the Company’s March 23, 2011 offering were materially false and
misleading. YPF engages in the exploration, development and production of
crude oil, natural gas and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) in Argentina.

The investigation is related to allegations that the Registration Statement
filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission in connection with the March
23, 2011 offering misrepresented or failed to disclose that: (1) the Company
faced a risk of nationalization by the Argentinean government; (2) as a result
of the Company’s failure to adequately produce oil and gas within Argentina
and reinvest a substantial portion of its profits back into the Company and
its operations, the risk of nationalization had increased; (3) the Company was
in breach of its concession contracts with various Argentinean provinces; and
(4) nationalization by the Argentinean government would likely have a severe
adverse effect on shareholders and on the Company’s market value.

If you purchased YPF American Depositary Shares pursuant or traceable to the
Company’s March 23, 2011 offering, if you have information or would like to
learn more about these claims, or if you wish to discuss these matters or have
