MATERIAL FACT

 

Cosan S.A. (B3: CSAN3) (“Cosan”), Cosan Logística S.A. (B3: RLOG3) (“Cosan Log”), and Cosan Limited (NYSE: CZZ) (“CZZ” and, together with Cosan and Cosan Log, the “Companies”), controlling shareholder of Cosan and Cosan Log, in addition to the Material Facts released by Cosan on July 3, 2020, July 7, 2020, December 4, 2020, and December 17, 2020, hereby inform their shareholders and the market in general that they have approved at their respective extraordinary shareholders’ meetings, held on this date (“Shareholders’ Meetings”), the corporate restructuring proposed by the Companies, which consists of a merger of companies under common control, as provided for by art. 264, paragraph 4th, of Law No. 6,404, dated of December 15, 1976 (“Brazilian Corporation Law”), pursuant to which CZZ and Cosan Log were merged into Cosan (“CZZ Merger” and “Cosan Log Merger” respectively and, jointly, the “Transaction”).

 

Withdrawal Rights and Consummation of the Cosan Log Merger before B3

 

Cosan Log shall publish on “Sistema Empresas.NET” and in its Investor Relations website (ri.cosanlogistica.com), on the date hereof, a Notice to Shareholders with information regarding the exercise of Withdrawal Rights (as defined below) by the shareholders of Cosan Log (B3: RLOG3) who did not attend to Extraordinary Shareholders’ Meeting held on January 22, 2021 and chose to withdraw from Cosan Log. The term for exercising this right will end on February 23, 2021.

 

Cosan Log’s management understands that the Transaction shall only be concluded if the value directed to the Withdrawal Rights (as defined below) of Cosan Log shareholders’ do not harm Cosan Log’s financial stability. The highest value to exercise the Withdrawal Rights, which shall be the book value of Cosan Log’s shares at market prices, calculated based on Cosan Log’s market value appraisal report, prepared by Apsis Consultoria Empresarial Ltda., to all shareholders of common Cosan Log’s shares that choose to exercise their Withdrawal Rights, must be equivalent to R$1,600,000,000.00 (one billion and six hundred million reais).

 

The Transaction will not result in withdrawal rights for Cosan’s shareholders (B3: CSAN3).

 

 

 

 

After the thirty (30) days term for the exercise of the withdrawal rights by dissenting shareholders of Cosan Log, pursuant to articles 252, paragraph 2 and 137, paragraph 1, of the Brazilian Corporation law (“Withdrawal Rights”), Cosan’s Board of Directors will hold a meeting to (i) confirm the value of the capital stock increase and the amount of shares issued within the Cosan Log Merger; (ii) confirm the date in which the amendment made to article 5 and the consolidation of Cosan bylaws will become effective; and (iii) resolve upon other matters that, due to their relevance and connection with the Transaction, have to be resolved upon (“Cosan’s Board of Directors Meeting”).

 

After the referred meeting of Cosan’s Board of Directors, the Companies will disclose a joint Material Fact, informing: (i) the consummation of the Cosan Log Merger before B3, which shall be the cut-off date when the shareholders that hold, by the end of the trading session, shares issued by Cosan Log will receive shares issued by Cosan, in replacement of their shares issued by Cosan Log, according to the Cosan Log’s Exchange Ratio (“Cut-Off Date”); (ii) the final date for trading the shares issued by CZZ and Cosan Log in NYSE (NYSE: CZZ) and in B3 (B3: RLOG3), respectively (“Final Trading Date”); and (iii) the date when the credit of new Cosan shares will be made for CZZ and Cosan Log shareholders (“Shares’ Credit Date”).

 

We present below the timeline that must be followed if the Withdrawal Rights are not exercised by Cosan Log’s dissenting shareholders:

Issuance of American Depositary Shares (“ADSs”)

 

The holders of CZZ Class A shares will receive Cosan ADSs and holders of CZZ Class B shares will receive Cosan shares, in each case subject to the terms and conditions for the CZZ Merger. We present below a timeline setting forth the estimated dates for: (i) the final trading date for CZZ shares on the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE” and “Final Trading Date in NYSE”, respectively); and (ii) the dates of commencement of trading of the Cosan ADSs on NYSE, both on a when issued basis and on a regular basis:

When Issued trading to begin for Cosan ADSs on NYSEMarch 8, 2021
When Issued trading to end for Cosan ADSs on NYSEMarch 10, 2021
Regular Trading of Cosan ADSs to beginMarch 11, 2021

 

As indicated above, as part of the CZZ Merger, Cosan will put in place an ADSs program, to be listed on the NYSE. Each ADS will represent one (1) common share issued by Cosan. Following the CZZ Merger, any holder of ADSs issued by Cosan may cause such ADSs to be cancelled and to have an equal number of validly issued and allotted, fully paid-up shares issued to such holder in replacement thereof.

 

The depositary for Cosan’s ADSs program has agreed to waive the cancellation fee for cancellations completed during the period of fifteen (15) calendar days after the completion of the CZZ Merger.

 

The Companies will keep their shareholders and the market in general updated on any progress regarding the Transaction and the timelines indicated above.
