3. Payment for Option Shares
If Petroquisa exercises the Option, Petroquisa must pay for the Option Shares through a contribution of (a) its ownership interest in petrochemical companies located in the Triunfo Petrochemical Complex in Rio Grande do Sul and (b) its ownership interest in other petrochemical companies that Braskem considers to be strategic (collectively, (a) and (b), the Assets).
If the value of the Assets contributed as payment for the Option Shares is insufficient for Petroquisa to obtain the level of ownership in the voting share capital of Braskem that it desires (up to the 30% limit set forth above), Odebrecht, ODBPAR and Norquisa will agree to sell the remaining Option Shares to Petroquisa for the price per share at which Braskem issues Option Shares, determined as set forth in Item 4 below.
If the value of the Assets contributed as payment for the Option Shares exceeds the value of 30% of the voting share capital of Braskem, Petroquisa will be required to subscribe for class A preferred shares of Braskem with the excess value of the Assets.
In order to exercise the Option, Petroquisa must inform Odebrecht regarding which Assets it intends to use to subscribe for the Option Shares by September 29, 2005. Odebrecht has the right to terminate the Option if Petroquisa does not include, as part of the Assets designated to be contributed, Petroquisas ownership interests in petrochemical companies located in the Triunfo Petrochemical Complex in Rio Grande do Sul that Odebrecht considers essential to the grant of the Option.
