Dividends policy

Brazilian corporation law and our Bylaws require that we distribute annually to our shareholders a mandatory dividend, which is the mandatory distribution of a minimum percentage of our net income for the prior fiscal year, unless our board of directors recommends against such distribution due to considerations relating to our financial condition. Our Bylaws require a minimum distribution equal to 50% of our net income, adjusted in accordance with Brazilian corporation law. The mandatory dividends may be paid in the form of dividends or interest on capital, the value of which, net of income tax payable on that amount by the recipient, may be allocated to the mandatory distribution and deducted by us in calculating our income and social contribution tax obligations

The remuneration paid to our shareholders since the IPO in 2006 is set forth in the chart below:

Dividends received before January 1, 2011 by non-corporate U.S. shareholders on common shares of certain foreign corporations are subject to U.S. federal income tax at lower rates than other types of ordinary income if certain conditions are met. However, because our common shares are not traded on an established securities market in the United States and there is no income tax treaty between Brazil and the United States, we currently do not expect that those conditions will be met. As a result, distributions on our shares paid out of our current or accumulated earnings and profits, as determined under United States federal income tax principles, will generally be taxable as ordinary income to U.S. shareholders and will not be entitled to a reduced rate of taxation.
