In consideration of the above-mentioned Official Letter, we clarify that:

1.    The Company monitors regularly the oscillations of its shares, and noted that on this date, July 9, 2020, there was a higher appreciation than other companies in the market, concluding that it could potentially be due to the news that were released by the press on the Company's privatization process;

 

2.    Despite the news released, there is no new information to be communicated by the Company that is no longer known to the market. This is because the intention of the Federal Government, the controlling shareholder of the Company, to privatize it has already been informed to the market, through the Relevant Fact of November 5, 2019, when the Bill 5.877 (“PL”) was sent to Lower House;

 

3.    To date, there has been no such approval, so all the news published in the media are still discussions, opinions and political situations of what may happen in relation to the approval of said PL in the National Congress, with no formal approval yet or a defined privatization model different from the one already included in the PL;

 

4.    In any case, the Company, observing its duty of diligence, forwarded, on this date, correspondence to the controller, through the Ministry of Mines and Energy, as soon as it verified the oscillation of its actions, asking, if there is any information material not disclosed to the

Subject: Disclosure of information on Eletrobras privatization

 

Mrs Director

 

In response to the CTA-DF-1535/2020 Rio de Janeiro correspondence, July 9, 2020, on the subject referenced above, I hereby formally communicate to this Company that:

 

1. The Eletrobras capitalization process is the Government’s priority agenda as has been made public;

 

2. There is no change by the Ministry of Mines and Energy in the modeling defined in the Law 5,877 of 2019.

 

3. Any studies on the issue are considered, in the light of the Access to Information Law, an act preparatory work that will still be submitted to the appreciation of those who are responsible for deciding on the matter, so that, at this moment, its content would still be reserved.

 

4. Furthermore, any pronouncement that has been given to the press does not reflect projections or expectations, if at all alternatives under discussion, without any formalization or definition, which, for this reason, they cannot be characterized as “new information” to be disclosed to market.

 

5. Therefore, there is no relevant information to be disclosed to Eletrobras at this time.

 

 

Kind regards,
