Federal-Mogul Corporation : Federal-Mogul Defers Refinancing and Extends Rights Offering Expiration Date

   Federal-Mogul Corporation : Federal-Mogul Defers Refinancing and Extends
                       Rights Offering Expiration Date

Southfield, Michigan, June 20, 2013 . Federal-Mogul Corporation  (NASDAQ:FDML) 
commenced a common stock rights offering on  June 7, 2013. At that time,  the 
Company  had  initiated  discussions  with  potential  financing  sources   in 
connection with  the  refinancing of  its  outstanding indebtedness,  and  the 
Company expected that  the refinancing  would be completed  shortly after  the 
completion of  the rights  offering. Due  to volatile  market conditions,  the 
Company intends  to  defer  the  refinancing  activities.  The  Company  will 
continue  to  evaluate  market  conditions  and  other  relevant  factors   in 
connection with the potential refinancing of all or a portion of the Company's
outstanding indebtedness.  There can  be  no assurances  as to  the  ultimate 
timing or terms of any such refinancing.

The completion of the  Company's rights offering is  not conditioned upon  the 
completion of the refinancing. However,  the Company has determined, in  light 
of the deferral  of the refinancing,  to offer rights  holders the ability  to 
withdraw the exercise of any  previously exercised subscription rights and  to 
extend the expiration date of the rights  offering from June 27, 2013 to  5:00 
p.m. EDT on July 1, 2013.

The rights  are  transferrable  and,  with respect  to  trading,  the  Company 
understands that actions have been taken by a market-maker to list the  rights 
on the OTC Bulletin Board. Any questions regarding the rights offering  should 
be directed to  D.F. King &  Co. Inc.,  the Information Agent  for the  rights 
offering, by calling 1-800-901-0068  (toll-free) or 1-212-269-5550  (collect), 
or Computershare Trust Company,  N.A., the Subscription  Agent for the  rights 
offering, by calling 1-800-546-5141.

The rights offering is being made  pursuant to a shelf registration  statement 
on Form  S-3  that was  previously  filed  with the  Securities  and  Exchange 
Commission (the  "SEC") and  became  effective on  May  1, 2013.  The  rights 
offering is  being made  solely  by means  of  the prospectus  and  prospectus 
supplement  that  was  filed  with  the  SEC  on  June  7,  2013.  Additional 
information regarding  the rights  offering  is set  forth in  the  prospectus 
supplement that was filed with the SEC on June 7, 2013.

This press release shall not constitute  an offer to sell or the  solicitation 
of an offer to buy any securities, nor shall there be any offer,  solicitation 
or sale of securities in any state  in which such offer, solicitation or  sale 
would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the  securities 
laws of any such state.
