NOTICE TO SHAREHOLDERS I
We inform that the dividend and interest on capital payment date will be set by the Financial Department. According to the Law 6404/76 Art. 205 3rd paragraph, dividend must be paid, except if contrarily deliberated at the General Meeting, up to sixty days after the date when the dividend is declared. In this case, due date for dividend payment is June 01, 2007.
Additionally, we inform that quota holders of FMP-FGTS mutual funds do not receive the dividend directly. It is paid by the company to the funds, increasing its patrimonial value and, as consequence, the value of the quotas. Quota holders receive the dividend indirectly through the increase in value of their quotas.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned, thereunto duly authorized.
