On March 31, 2019, gross debt reached BRL 3,097.8 million, up BRL 82.9 million when compared to the balance on December 31, 2018, due mainly to a BRL 80 million disbursement from BNDES for the acquisition of machinery and equipment for reinforcement and improvement efforts, as well as for social investments not covered by environmental licenses and the projects’ socio-environmental programs.

Because of CPC 06 (R2), according to which starting in January 2019 the Company must recognize, in connection with all contracts, future obligations with the exception of short-term and/or low-value contracts, BRL 20.5 million have been added to IFRS gross debt in connection with the Company’s leases. Therefore, total IFRS debt was BRL 3,118.4 million. Regulatory accounting remained unchanged.

The increase in the Company’s cash and cash equivalents position from the previous quarter is justified, mainly, by operational cash generation in the period. Therefore, net debt reached BRL 1,992.6 million at the end of March 2019 vs. BRL 2,317.3 million in December 2018. The Net Debt/Adjusted EBITDA ratio was 0.8x in March 2019.

The Company is compliant with the established covenants and requirements for all issues. For the years 2018, 2019 and 2020, the most restrictive Net Debt/EBITDA index is 3.0x. Greater details on financial indicators are available in Attachment V of this document.

The average cost of consolidated debt was 8.2% p.a. on March 31, 2019 vs. 7.9% p.a. on December 31, 2018, because of the IPCA increase between periods. The IPCA is the Company’s main debt indicator, as well as its main revenue index. The average maturity of the consolidated debt on March 31, 2019 was 3.1 years.
