Frequently Asked Questions
Banco Bradesco S.A., the custodian bank for Vale's shares, sends the shareholder's statement of shareholding position to the shareholder's address, when there is a change in the share position, when dividends / interest on equity are paid and for income tax purposes. Therefore, it is essential that the shareholder keep their address updated in the custodian's records. Also, at any time, shareholders can go to a Bradesco bank branch and request a certificate of their shareholding position in Vale.
Shareholders whose custody is carried out by the CBLC - Companhia Brasileira de Liquidação e Custódia - should consult their position in this institution with the brokerage firm through which the investments were made.
In March 2002, the third and final stage of Vale's privatization program was carried out, through the global sale of common shares held by the Federal Government and BNDES - National Bank for Economic and Social Development.
On this occasion, the Federal Government allowed retail investors to take part in this stage of Vale's privatization using their deposits from the Severance Pay Indemnity Fund (FGTS) to purchase shares offered through the Mutual Privatization Funds – FMPs. The investors who made investments through FMPs acquired shares in an investment fund and not shares in Vale. The portfolios of Vale's FGTS FMPs, managed by several banks, are composed of various assets, mainly Vale's shares.
The holder share certificates must be delivered to any branch of Banco Bradesco so that the shares can be updated and converted into registered and book-entry form. At Banco Bradesco, the shareholder must fill out form 1055-3 (provided by the bank itself), attach the originals of the certificates and keep a copy of this form as the protocol. After updating, the shareholder will receive, at the provided address, a "statement" informing their new shareholding position and the amount of dividends/JCP to which they are entitled. This amount will be deposited in the checking account of any bank in the country, as directed by the shareholder.
No, Vale is not a financial institution and, therefore, it does not trade shares and debentures with its investors. To trade any asset or debt security issued by Vale, investors must directly contact a brokerage firm.
On the date of the Extraordinary General Meeting, held on April 18, 1997, Vale's shareholders were entitled to receive the non-convertible equity debentures, in the proportion of one debenture for each share.
If the General Manager is not familiar with the procedure, please ask them to contact Bradesco's Department of Actions and Custody (DAC), by calling (11) 3684-9441 or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
No. The hiring of financial advisory services for this purpose is not mandatory, and the registration update must be requested directly by the debenture holder to Banco Bradesco, the Company's bookkeeping agent, which will inform the procedure to be followed for the update. In general, to request the regularization of registration data, the debenture holder must look for a branch of Banco Bradesco S.A., the bookkeeping agent for Vale's equity debentures, with personal identification documents (RG, CPF and Proof of Residence), as well as a proof of bank domicile. Further guidance can be obtained by calling 0800-701-1616 (Investor Guidance Channel). Alternatively, investors can also contact Vale's Investor Relations department via email at email@example.com. There is no charge by Bradesco or Vale for providing information on equity debentures or for updating the registration.
EBIT (Earnings Before Interest and Taxes) is Vale's main operating profit measure. This represents operating profit, that is, it is calculated as profit after operating costs and expenses. Through EBIT, Vale can assess purely operational performance, that is, without the impacts of its financial structure, non-operating items and other tax-related items.
Ex date is the date on which the shares (common and preferred) are traded without the right to remuneration approved at the meeting of Vale's Board of Directors.
Investors should look for a branch of Banco Bradesco, the custodian bank for Vale's shares. Shareholders whose custody is carried out by the CBLC - Companhia Brasileira de Liquidação e Custódia - should contact the brokerage firm through which the investments were made.
