Considering the current guidelines of the Ministry of Health, the State Government of São Paulo and the City Hall of São Paulo for the prevention and confrontation of the coronavirus (COVID-19), and aiming at the safety of its shareholders, the Company suggests that, if possible, preference should be given to using the distance vote bulletin for participation in the Annual Shareholders' Meeting, mainly by sending them to the service providers referred to in item “i” of the paragraph above, given the greater simplicity of such procedure.

Shareholders may transmit the instructions for completing this bulletin to the service providers which are able to provide services to collect and transmit instructions for completion of bulletin for distance vote, namely:

(i)     shareholder’s custodian, if the shares are deposited in a central depositary; or
