Dear Sir,

The undersigned, acting on behalf of the corporation (sociedad anónima) named Celulosa Arauco y Constitución S.A., henceforth the “Company” or “Arauco”, both domiciled in the Metropolitan Region of Chile, Avenida El Golf No. 150, 14 Floor, Commune of Las Condes, registered in the Chilean Securities Registry under No. 42, Chilean Tax Identification No. 93,458,000-1, and duly empowered for these purposes, hereby communicates the following material information in relation to the Company and its business, pursuant to article 9 and second paragraph of article 10, both of Law No. 18,045, and Regulation of General Application (Norma de Carácter General) No. 30, issued by this Superintendency:

Certain press information from Brazil have been released, with respect to negotiations of Arauco with the Brazilian company J&F Investimentos S.A. (“J&F”), for the acquisition of shares of Eldorado Brasil Celulose S.A. (“Eldorado”).

First of all, we should mention that the Company regularly evaluates business opportunities in the local or international markets, which may be attractive for Arauco’s expansion. In this context, the Company has been evaluating Eldorado, a pulp production company engaged in this activity through its most relevant asset, a pulp plant with an annual production capacity of 1.7 million tons of short-fiber pulp.




In this respect, we estimate appropriate to inform that the Company has preliminary entered into a confidentiality agreement, with the purpose to explore a possible investment in Eldorado.

Yours sincerely,


Matías Domeyko Cassel
