The Company is in a short position in exchange futures rates through NDFs on the Brazilian over-the-counter market. The hedge is contracted concomitantly with the definition of the cost of the exported products, thus fixing and guaranteeing the trading margin. The Company's policy is to contract hedge up to the maximum of 100% of the volume exported. In the period in question hedge was contracted in the amount of US$ 57 million, which represented approximately 72.6% of the effective volume of exports in these months.
