The appraisal included only the undeveloped land, excluding any buildings and improvements or machinery and equipment.

The asset valuation method used for the appraisal is based on the most recent standards and guidelines issued by the Brazilian Association of Technical Standards (ABNT) that govern the concepts, establish the criteria to be adopted in asset valuations, define methods for determining values and validates the degree of substantiation and accuracy of valuations, among other provisions. The Direct Market Data Method was adopted from among the various methods prescribed for valuing property, plant and equipment, as defined by ABNT Standards NBR 14653-1 and NBE 14653-3. The method consists of determining the market value of an asset based on a comparison of its sales price with assets featuring similar characteristics. According to the method, adjustments are made after applying factors that aim to correct any differences between the assets available in the market and the asset that is the subjectmatter of the appraisal.

Details of the appraisal conducted by Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu are presented in the following table:
