Ambev S.A. (“Company”) informs that, as per its today’s press release, the Company expects Cash COGS per hectoliter for its beer business in Brazil to increase in the low twenties in the full year of 2021, due mainly to currency BRL depreciation and higher commodity prices.


Additionally, the Company informs its decision, on an exceptional basis and aiming at greater transparency, to disclose to the market that the volume of beer sales in Brazil grew above 10% in the period from January 2021 to date, even without the usual Carnival festivities this year and still in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.


This material fact notice refers to a projection that shall not constitute a promise of performance, reflecting only the perception of the Company’s management, and is subject to risks and uncertainties. Projections consider several factors such as general economic, market and industry conditions that are beyond the Company’s management control. Any changes in assumptions or factors could cause actual results to differ from the projections made. In addition, the Company emphasizes that the information for the year 2021 contemplated in this notice is preliminary and has not yet been subject to review by the external auditors.
