Discontinuation of our current B2B operations

As part of its continuing moves to streamline its operations and focus on its core B2C business, Netshoes (Cayman) Limited (NYSE: NETS) announces that it has decided to discontinue its business-to-business (B2B) operation dedicated to sales of nutrition supplements and vitamins after the remaining stock of products is depleted. Despite investments over two years, the venture with Midway Labs generated lower than expected results and a high level of inventory of nutrition supplements. In order to minimize further negative results, Netshoes adjusted the margins of nutrition supplements products, accelerating sales through its B2C channel. This will result in a write-off of about R$60  million in existing nutrition supplement inventory. In addition, Netshoes terminated its commercial agreement with Midway Labs and has filed a lawsuit against them. Netshoes expects to record a provision of about R$20 million for Midway receivables that may not be collected.

Until November 2016, he was the partner responsible for the Latin America practice of Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy LLP and managing partner of the firm’s São Paulo office.  He currently splits his time between Brazil and New York as a corporate finance, governance and anti-corruption consultant. Mr. Jánszky is on the board of directors of Gol Linhas Aéreas Inteligentes S.A. and also serves as a member of the independent investigative committees of CCR S.A., Hypera S.A. and M.

 Agreement with the Brazilian Federal District Attorney’s Office in connection with previously disclosed personal data incident

In line with principles of transparency and best practices, Netshoes announces that it reached on October 3, 2018 an agreement (Termo de Ajustamento de Conduta) with the Brazilian Federal District State Attorney’s Office (Ministério Público Estadual do Distrito Federal e Territórios) in connection with the data incident previously disclosed to the market on February 26, 2018. Netshoes agreed to pay a fine in the amount of R$500,000.00. In return, the Brazilian Federal District State Attorney’s Office will terminate its administrative legal proceeding into this incident. This agreement is still subject to ratification by Brazilian courts.

The Company will continue to take all necessary security measures to reasonably protect customer data from unauthorized access and/or disclosure. The safety and reliability of its IT infrastructure are core to Netshoes’s business operations.
