FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
This prospectus, the registration statement of which it forms a part, each prospectus supplement and the documents incorporated by reference into these documents contain estimates and forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. In addition, from time to time we or our representatives have made or may make forward-looking statements orally or in writing. Furthermore, such forward-looking statements may be included in various filings that we make with the SEC or press releases or oral statements made by or with the approval of one of our authorized executive officers. These forward-looking statements are subject to certain known and unknown risks and uncertainties, as well as assumptions that could cause actual results to differ materially from those reflected in these forward-looking statements.
These estimates and forward-looking statements are based mainly on our current expectations and estimates of future events and trends that affect or may affect our business, financial condition, results of operations, cash flow, liquidity, prospects and the trading price of our Class A common shares. Although we believe that these estimates and forward-looking statements are based upon reasonable assumptions, they are subject to many significant risks, uncertainties and assumptions and are made in light of information currently available to us.
These statements appear throughout this prospectus and include statements regarding our intent, belief or current expectations in connection with:
recent developments relating to actual events or concerns relating to liquidity constraints, defaults and non-performance by financial institutions;
the impact of the ongoing wars in the Middle East and in Ukraine, and the impact of these events on the global economy, which are highly uncertain and difficult to predict;
our future growth opportunities, expected earnings, expected capital expenditures, and future financing requirements;
our ability to expand our business into markets outside of Brazil and in particular our ability to integrate the operations and obtain the benefits that we intend to achieve through our acquisition in the United States of USEND (now Inter&Co Payments, Inc.);
general economic, political and business conditions both in Brazil and internationally, including in Brazil, developments and the perception of risks in connection with investigations and increasingly fractious relations among the Brazilian president and his administration, members of the Brazilian Congress and members of the Supreme Court, as well as policies and potential changes that have been or are proposed to be implemented, including economic and tax reforms, any of which may negatively affect growth prospects in the Brazilian economy as a whole;
the socioeconomic, political and business environment in Brazil, including, but not limited to, foreign exchange rates, employment levels, population growth and consumer confidence;
inflation as well as fluctuations in the real to the U.S. dollar and in interest rates;
changes in applicable rules and regulations, including, but not limited to, those relating to taxation, employment, information technology, data privacy, and cybersecurity;
our ability to implement our growth strategies;
our ability to adequately finance our operations on favorable terms;
our ability to satisfactorily serve our clients;
our ability to attract and retain companies to offer their merchandise through our Inter Shop & Commerce Plus platform;
our competitors and competitive position;
4


changes in consumer preferences and consumer demand for our products and services;
difficulties in maintaining and/or improving our products or in addressing client complaints and any negative publicity involving our products and services;
increases in our operating costs, particularly in relation to our workforce; and
other risk factors discussed under “Risk Factors” included in documents we file from time to time with the SEC that are incorporated by reference herein, including in our most recent Annual Report on Form 20-F, which is incorporated by reference herein.
The words “believe,” “understand,” “may,” “will,” “aim,” “estimate,” “continue,” “anticipate,” “seek,” “intend,” “expect,” “should,” “could,” “forecast” and similar words are intended to identify forward-looking statements. You should not place undue reliance on such statements, which speak only as of the date they were made. Neither we nor any selling shareholders undertake any obligation to update publicly or to revise any forward-looking statements after we distribute this prospectus because of new information, future events or other factors. Our independent registered public accounting firm has neither examined nor compiled the forward-looking statements and, accordingly, do not provide any assurance with respect to such statements. In light of the risks and uncertainties described above, the future events and circumstances discussed in this prospectus might not occur and are not guarantees of future performance. Because of these uncertainties, you should not make any investment decision based upon these estimates and forward-looking statements. You are advised to consult any additional disclosures we have made or will make in our reports to the SEC on Forms 20-F and on Forms 6-K that are designated as being incorporated by reference into this prospectus. All subsequent written and oral forward-looking statements attributable to us or persons acting on our behalf are expressly qualified in their entirety by the cautionary statements contained in this prospectus.

RISK FACTORS
Any investment in the Class A common shares involves a high degree of risk. Before purchasing any securities, you should carefully consider and evaluate all of the information included and incorporated by reference in this prospectus or any applicable prospectus supplement, including the risk factors incorporated by reference from our most recent Annual Report on Form 20-F, as updated by other reports and documents we file with the SEC after the date of this prospectus that are incorporated by reference herein or in the applicable prospectus supplement. Additional risk factors that you should carefully consider may be included in a prospectus supplement or other offering materials relating to an offering of our Class A common shares.
We encourage you to read these risk factors in their entirety. In addition to these risks, other risks and uncertainties not presently known to us or that we currently deem immaterial may also adversely affect our business operations and financial condition. Such risks could cause actual results to differ materially from anticipated results. This could cause the trading price of the securities to decline, perhaps significantly, and investors may lose part or all of their investment. You should not purchase the securities described in this prospectus unless you understand and know you can bear all of the investment risks involved.
In general, investing in the securities of issuers in emerging market countries such as Brazil involves risks that are different from the risks associated with investing in the securities of U.S. companies and companies located in other countries with more developed capital markets.

DESCRIPTION OF SHARE CAPITAL
We were incorporated on January 26, 2021, as a Cayman Islands exempted company with limited liability with the Cayman Islands Registrar of Companies. Our corporate purposes are (i) the business of holding equity participations in other entities and any matters ancillary or incidental thereto; and (ii) any matters necessary for, or ancillary or incidental to, the administration of our Company from time to time, and we are capable of exercising all the functions of a natural person of full capacity irrespective of any question of corporate benefit, as provided by Section 27(2) of the Companies Act.
Our affairs are governed principally by: (1) our memorandum and articles of association (as adopted at the relevant time); (2) the Companies Act; and (3) the common law of the Cayman Islands. As provided in our current Memorandum of Association, subject to Cayman Islands law, we have full capacity to carry on (i) the business of holding equity participations in other entities and any matters ancillary or incidental thereto; and (ii) any matters necessary for, or ancillary or incidental to, the administration of the Company from time to time. Our registered office is c/o Maples Corporate Services Limited, PO Box 309, Ugland House, Grand Cayman, KY1-1104, Cayman Islands.
As of the date of this prospectus, our authorized share capital is US$50,000 divided into 20,000,000,000 shares of a par value of US$0.0000025 each, of which 285,153,435 have been issued and are outstanding as Class A Shares of par value of US$0.0000025 each and 117,037,105 have been issued and are outstanding as Class B Shares of par value of US$0.0000025 each.
Each person owning Class A common shares held through the Depositary Trust Company, or DTC, must rely on the procedures thereof and on institutions that have accounts therewith to exercise any rights of a holder of the Class A common shares. Persons wishing to obtain certificates for their Class A common shares must make arrangements with DTC.
Our Class B common shares are not freely tradable and are not and will not be listed on any exchange.
The following discussion summarizes the material terms of the Class A common shares of Inter & Co which may be offered by this prospectus. This discussion does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Articles of Association included as Exhibit 1.1 to our most recent Annual Report on Form 20-F.
Share Capital
Our Articles of Association authorize two classes of common shares: Class A common shares, which are entitled to one vote per share and Class B common shares, which are entitled to 10 votes per share and to maintain a proportional ownership and voting interest in the event that additional Class A common shares are issued. Any holder of Class B common shares may convert their shares at any time into Class A common shares on a share-for-share basis. The rights of the two classes of common shares are otherwise identical, except as described below.
As of the date of this prospectus, our total authorized share capital is US$50,000, divided into 20,000,000,000 shares with a par value of US$0.0000025 each, of which:
10,000,000,000 shares are designated as Class A common shares;
5,000,000,000 shares are designated as Class B common shares; and
5,000,000,000 shares are undesignated.
The authorized but unissued shares that are presently undesignated may be issued by our board of directors as common shares of any class or as shares with preferred, deferred or other special rights or restrictions.
Treasury Stock
At the date of this prospectus, Inter & Co has no Class A common shares or Class B common shares in treasury.
9


Listing
Our Class A common shares are listed on Nasdaq under the symbol “INTR.” Settlement of any Class A common shares offered pursuant to this prospectus is expected to take place on or about the completion date of the relevant offering through DTC, in accordance with its customary settlement procedures for equity securities. If your shares are registered in the name of DTC, you will not be a shareholder or member of the company. Each person owning Class A common shares held through DTC must rely on the procedures thereof and on institutions that have accounts therewith to exercise any rights of a holder of the Class A common shares.
Our Class A common shares are listed in registered form and are not certificated.
Transfer Agent and Registrar
We have appointed American Stock Transfer & Trust Company LLC as our agent in New York to maintain the shareholders’ register and to act as transfer agent, registrar and paying agent for the Class A common shares. Any Class A common shares offered pursuant to this prospectus will be traded on Nasdaq in book-entry form. The transfer agent, registrar and paying agent’s address is 6201 15th Avenue, Brooklyn — NY 11219, and its telephone number is +1 (800) 937-5449 or +1 (718) 921-8124.
Corporate Purpose
Our corporate purposes are (i) the business of holding equity participations in other entities and any matters ancillary or incidental thereto; and (ii) any matters necessary for, or ancillary or incidental to, the administration of our Company from time to time and we shall have and be capable of exercising all the functions of a natural person of full capacity irrespective of any question of corporate benefit, as provided by Section 27(2) of the Companies Act.
Issuance of Shares
Except as expressly provided in our Articles of Association, our board of directors has general and unconditional authority to allot, grant options over, offer or otherwise deal with or dispose of any unissued shares in the Company’s capital without the approval of our shareholders (whether forming part of the original or any increased share capital), either at a premium or at par, with or without preferred, deferred or other special rights or restrictions, whether in regard to dividend, voting, return of capital or otherwise and to such persons, on such terms and conditions, and at such times as the directors may decide, but so that no share shall be issued at a discount, except in accordance with the provisions of the Companies Act.
We will not issue bearer shares.
Our Articles of Association provide that at any time that there are Class A common shares in issue, additional Class B common shares may only be issued pursuant to (1) a share split, subdivision of shares or similar transaction or where a dividend or other distribution is paid by the issue of shares or rights to acquire shares or following capitalization of profits; (2) a merger, consolidation, or other business combination involving the issuance of Class B common shares as full or partial consideration; or (3) an issuance of Class A common shares, whereby holders of the Class B common shares are entitled to purchase a number of Class B common shares that would allow them to maintain their proportional ownership and voting interests in us (following our offer to each holder of Class B common shares to issue to such holder, upon the same economic terms and at the same price, such number of Class B common shares as would ensure such holder may maintain a proportional ownership and voting interest in us pursuant to our Articles of Association).
In light of: (a) the above provisions; and (b) the 10-to-one voting ratio between our Class B common shares and Class A common shares, holders of Class B common shares will in many situations continue to maintain control of all matters requiring shareholder approval. This concentration of ownership and voting power will limit or preclude your ability to influence corporate matters for the foreseeable future.
Fiscal Year
Our fiscal year begins on January 1 of each year and ends on December 31 of such year.

Voting Rights
A holder of a Class B common share is entitled, in respect of such share, to 10 votes per share, while a holder of a Class A common share is entitled, in respect of such share, to one vote per share. The holders of Class A common shares and Class B common shares vote together as a single class on all matters (including the appointment of directors) submitted to a vote of shareholders, except as provided below and as otherwise required by law.
Our Articles of Association provide as follows regarding the respective rights of holders of Class A common shares and Class B common shares:
separate class consents from the holders of Class A common shares and Class B common shares, as applicable, shall be required for any variation to the rights attached to their respective class of shares; however, the Directors may treat the two classes of shares as forming one class if they consider that both such classes would be affected in the same way by a proposal;
the rights conferred on holders of Class A common shares shall not be deemed to be varied by the creation or issuance of additional Class B common shares; and the rights conferred on holders of Class B common shares shall not be deemed to be varied by the creation or issuance of additional Class A common shares; and
the rights attaching to the Class A common shares and the Class B common shares shall not be deemed to be varied by the creation or issuance of further shares ranking pari passu therewith, by the redemption or purchase of any shares of any class us, the cancellation of authorised but unissued shares of that class or the creation or issuance of shares with preferred or other rights, including, without limitation, shares with enhanced or weighted voting rights.
As set forth in our Articles of Association, our board of directors has authority to increase or decrease the number of shares comprising any such class or series (but not below the number of shares of any class or series of shares then outstanding) without the approval of the holders of Class A common shares and Class B common shares. However, our authorized share capital may only be increased by way of an “ordinary resolution,” which is defined in the Articles of Association as being a resolution (1) of a duly constituted general meeting passed by a simple majority of the votes cast by, or on behalf of, the shareholders entitled to vote present in person or by proxy and voting at the meeting; or (2) approved in writing by all of the shareholders entitled to vote at a general meeting in one or more instruments each signed by one or more of the shareholders and the effective date of the resolution so adopted shall be the date on which the instrument, or the last of such instruments, if more than one, is executed.
Conversion Rights
Each Class B common share may be converted into one Class A common share (i) upon delivery by the holder of such Class B common share of a notice to Inter & Co, at its registered office, in the form described in our Articles of Association, to effect a conversion of such Class B common share or (ii) automatically upon any transfer of such Class B common share, whether or not for value, except for certain limited transfers described in our Articles of Association. Such transfers include transfers to affiliates, one or more trustees of a trust established for the benefit of the shareholder or their affiliates, and partnerships, corporations and other entities owned or controlled by the shareholder or their affiliates, as well as to a non-affiliate transferee that agrees in writing with us to make a tender offer or exchange offer to all holders of Class A common shares, pursuant to the tag-along rights contained in the Articles of Association as described in “―Transfer of Shares―Tag Along.
Upon conversion of Class B common shares into Class A common shares, the resulting Class A common shares may be transferred, subject to any restrictions under applicable law.
As set forth in Inter & Co’s Articles of Association, each Class B common share will convert automatically into one Class A common share and no Class B common shares will be issued thereafter if, at any time, the total number of votes of the outstanding Class B common shares represents less than 10% of the voting share rights of the Company. Additionally, the holders of a majority of the then outstanding Class B common shares have the right to require that all outstanding Class B common shares be converted.

Preemptive or Similar Rights
The Class B common shares are entitled to maintain a proportional ownership and voting interest in the event that additional Class A common shares are issued. As such, except for certain exceptions, if we intend to issue Class A common shares, we must first make an offer to each holder of Class B common shares to issue to such holder on the same economic terms such number of Class B common shares as would ensure that the proportion in nominal value of the issued common shares held by such holder as Class B common shares, after the issuance of such Class A common shares will be as nearly as practicable equal to the proportion in nominal value of the issued common shares held by such holder as Class B common shares before the said issuance. This right to maintain a proportional ownership interest does not apply in circumstances where fractional entitlements are rounded or otherwise settled or sold at the discretion of our board of directors or the making of an offer to a holder of Class B common shares would in the view of our board of directors pose legal or practical problems in or under the laws or securities rules of any jurisdiction or the requirements of any regulatory body or stock exchange such that our board of directors considers it necessary or expedient in the interests of the Company to exclude such holder from the offer, and the holders of two-thirds of the Class B common shares may consent in writing to our board of directors issuing of Class A common shares for cash without such offer being made. In addition, pursuant to our Articles of Association, preemptive rights will be deemed waived to the extent a holder of Class B common shares does not exercise such rights within the time period stated in the offer made by us to such holder of Class B common shares, which period must be at least 30 days beginning on the date the offer is deemed received by such holder.
Equal Status
Except as expressly provided in our Articles of Association, Class A common shares and Class B common shares have the same rights and privileges and rank equally, share ratably and are identical in all respects as to all matters. In the event of any: (1) merger, consolidation, scheme, arrangement or other business combination requiring the approval of our shareholders entitled to vote thereon (whether or not we are the surviving entity); (2) tender or exchange offer to acquire any Class A common shares or Class B common shares by any third party pursuant to an agreement to which we are a party, or (3) tender or exchange offer by us to acquire any Class A common shares or Class B common shares, in each such case the holders of Class A common shares shall have the right to receive, or the right to elect to receive, the same form of consideration (as shall be adjusted, in the case of share or equivalent consideration, by the directors so as to account for the different economic and voting rights that exist or may exist between such consideration and the share classes) as the holders of Class B common shares, and (except as foresaid) the holders of Class A common shares shall have the right to receive, or the right to elect to receive, at least the same amount of consideration on a per share basis as the holders of Class B common shares.
Record Dates
For the purpose of determining shareholders entitled to notice of, or to vote at any general meeting of shareholders or any adjournment thereof, or shareholders entitled to receive dividend or other distribution payments, or in order to make a determination of shareholders for any other purpose, our board of directors may set a record date which shall not exceed 40 days prior to the date where the determination will be made.
General Meetings of Shareholders
As a condition of admission to a general meeting, a shareholder must be duly registered as a shareholder at the applicable record date for that meeting and, in order to vote, all calls or installments then payable by such shareholder to us in respect of the shares that such shareholder holds must have been paid.
Subject to any special rights or restrictions as to voting then attached to any shares, at any general meeting every shareholder who is present in person or by proxy (or, in the case of a shareholder being a corporation, by its duly authorized representative not being themselves a shareholder entitled to vote) shall have one vote per Class A common share and 10 votes per Class B common share.
As a Cayman Islands exempted company, we are not obliged by the Companies Act to call annual general meetings; however, our Articles of Association provide that in each year Inter & Co will hold an annual general meeting of shareholders, within the first four months following the end of its fiscal year. For the annual general
12


meeting of shareholders, the agenda shall be set by our board of directors and will include, among other things, the presentation of the annual accounts and the report of the directors (if any) and the aggregate compensation to be paid to our directors and officers will be subject to shareholder approval at our annual general meeting.
Also, we may, but are not required to (unless required by the laws of the Cayman Islands), hold other general meetings during the year.
General meetings of shareholders are generally expected to take place in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, but may be held elsewhere, including virtually, if the directors so decide.
Subject to regulatory requirements, the annual general meeting and any extraordinary general meetings must be called by not less than 21 clear days’ notice prior to the relevant shareholders meeting and convened by a notice discussed below. Alternatively, upon the prior consent of all holders entitled to receive notice that meeting may be convened by a shorter notice and in a manner deemed appropriate by those holders.
We will give notice of each general meeting of shareholders by publication on our website and in any other manner that we may be required to follow in order to comply with Cayman Islands law, Nasdaq and SEC requirements. The holders of registered shares may be given notice of a general meeting by means of letters sent to the addresses of those shareholders as registered in our shareholders’ register, or, subject to certain statutory requirements, by electronic means.
Holders whose shares are registered in the name of DTC or its nominee, which we expect will be the case for all holders of Class A common shares, will not be deemed to be shareholders or members of Inter & Co and must rely on the procedures of DTC regarding notice of general meetings and the exercise of rights of a holder of the Class A common shares.
A quorum for a general meeting consists of any one or more persons holding or representing by proxy not less than one-fourth of aggregate of the voting power of all shares in issue and entitled to vote upon the business to be transacted. If a quorum is not present within half an hour from the time appointed for the meeting to commence or if during such a meeting a quorum ceases to be present, a second meeting may be called with at least eight days’ notice to shareholders specifying the place, the day and the hour of the second meeting, as the Directors may determine, and if at the second meeting a quorum is not present within half an hour from the time appointed for the meeting to commence, the shareholders present shall be a quorum. In respect of a separate class meeting (other than an adjourned meeting) convened to sanction the modification of class rights, the necessary quorum is persons holding or representing by proxy not less than two-thirds of the issued Inter & Co shares of the applicable class.
A resolution put to a vote at a general meeting shall be decided on a poll. Generally speaking, an ordinary resolution to be passed by the shareholders at a general meeting requires the affirmative vote of a simple majority of the votes cast by, or on behalf of, the shareholders entitled to vote, present in person or by proxy and voting at a quorate general meeting and a special resolution requires the affirmative vote of at least a two-thirds majority of the votes cast by, or on behalf of, the shareholders entitled to vote who are present in person or by proxy and voting at a quorate general meeting. Both ordinary resolutions and special resolutions may also be passed by a unanimous written resolution signed by all the shareholders of our Company, as permitted by the Companies Act and our Articles of Association.
Pursuant to our Articles of Association, general meetings of shareholders are to be chaired by any person appointed by our board of directors, and in the event that the directors do not appoint any person, the chairman of our board of directors or in his absence the vice-chairman of the board of directors. If the chairman or vice-chairman of our board of directors is absent, the directors present at the meeting shall appoint one of them to be chairman of the general meeting. If neither the chairman, nor the vice-chairman, nor another director is present at the general meeting within 15 minutes after the time appointed for holding the meeting, the shareholders present in person or by proxy and entitled to vote may elect any one of the shareholders to be chairman. The order of business at each meeting shall be determined by the chairman of the meeting, and he or she shall have the right and authority to prescribe such rules, regulations and procedures and to do all such acts and things as are necessary or desirable for the proper conduct of the meeting, including, without limitation, the establishment of procedures for the maintenance of order and safety, limitations on the time allotted to questions or comments on the affairs of Inter &
13


Co, restrictions on entry to such meeting after the time prescribed for the commencement thereof, and the opening and closing of the polls.
In addition to the matters required to be approved by shareholders by Cayman Islands law, our Articles of Association provide that the following matters shall be approved by ordinary resolution (requiring the affirmative vote of a simple majority of those shareholders attending and voting in person or by proxy at a quorate general meeting), unless the Companies Act requires a special resolution (requiring the affirmative vote of at least a two-thirds majority of those shareholders attending and voting in present or by proxy at a quorate general meeting):
acquisitions where the issuance of Inter & Co shares (including shares issued pursuant to an earn-out provisions or similar type of provision and securities that are convertible, exercisable or exchangeable for Inter & Co shares) equals 20% or more of the pre-transaction outstanding shares or aggregate voting power outstanding of Inter & Co;
acquisitions where the issuance of Inter & Co shares (including shares issued pursuant to an earn-out provisions or similar type of provision and securities that are convertible, exercisable or exchangeable for shares) equals 5% or more of the pre-transaction outstanding shares or aggregate voting power outstanding of Inter & Co when an officer, director or shareholder who beneficially own 5% of the total outstanding Shares or voting power of Inter & Co has a 5% or greater interest in the target or assets to be acquired (or such persons collectively have a 10% or greater interest in the target or assets to be acquired);
transactions, other than a public offering, involving the sale, issuance or potential issuance by Inter & Co of Inter & Co shares (or securities that are convertible, exercisable or exchangeable for such shares), which alone or together with sales by officers, directors or shareholders who beneficially own 5% of the total outstanding shares or voting power of Inter & Co, equals 20% or more of the shares or voting power of the Company outstanding before the sale or issuance if such sale or issue price is lower than the closing price of Inter & Co shares the trading day immediately preceding the signing of the binding agreement in relation to such sale or issue or the average of the closing price of the shares the five trading days immediately preceding the signing of the binding agreement in relation to such sale or issue;
the issuance of Inter & Co shares (or securities that are convertible, exercisable or exchangeable for shares) that will result in a change of control of Inter & Co;
the adoption or material amendment of any incentive plan or equity compensation arrangement by Inter & Co other than in circumstances where shareholder approval would not be necessary pursuant to Nasdaq rules; and
a merger or spin-off involving Inter & Co, with one or more businesses or entities.
Liquidation Rights
If we are voluntarily wound up, the liquidator, after taking into account and giving effect to the rights of preferred and secured creditors and to any agreement between us and any creditors that the claims of such creditors shall be subordinated or otherwise deferred to the claims of any other creditors and to any contractual rights of set-off or netting of claims between us and any person or persons (including without limitation any bilateral or any multi-lateral set-off or netting arrangements between us and any person or persons) and subject to any agreement between us and any person or persons to waive or limit the same, shall apply our property in satisfaction of its liabilities pari passu and subject thereto shall distribute the property amongst the shareholders according to their rights and interests in us.
14


Changes to Capital
Pursuant to the Articles of Association, we may from time to time by ordinary resolution (requiring the affirmative vote of a simple majority of those shareholders attending and voting in person or by proxy at a quorate general meeting):
increase our authorized share capital by such sum, to be divided into shares of such amount, as the resolution shall prescribe;
consolidate and divide all or any of our share capital into shares of a larger amount than its existing shares;
convert all or any of our paid-up shares into stock and reconvert that stock into paid-up shares of any denomination;
subdivide our existing shares or any of them into shares of a smaller amount, provided that in the subdivision the proportion between the amount paid and the amount, if any, unpaid on each reduced share shall be the same as it was in the case of the share from which the reduced share is derived; or
cancel any shares which, at the date of the passing of the resolution, have not been taken or agreed to be taken by any person and diminish the amount of our share capital by the amount of the shares so cancelled.
Our shareholders may by special resolution (requiring the affirmative vote of at least a two-thirds majority of those shareholders attending and voting in person or by proxy at a quorate general meeting), subject to confirmation by the Grand Court of the Cayman Islands on an application by Inter & Co for an order confirming such reduction, reduce our share capital or any capital redemption reserve in any manner permitted by law.
In addition, subject to the provisions of the Companies Act and our Articles of Association, we may:
issue shares on terms that they are to be redeemed or are liable to be redeemed;
purchase our own shares (including any redeemable shares); and
make a payment in respect of the redemption or purchase of its own shares in any manner authorized by the Companies Act, including out of our own capital.
Transfer of Shares
Class A common shares
Subject to any applicable restrictions set forth in the Articles of Association or applicable law, any of our shareholders may transfer all or any of their Class A common shares by an instrument of transfer in the usual or common form or in the form prescribed by Nasdaq or any other form approved by our board of directors.
The Class A common shares are traded on Nasdaq in book-entry form and may be transferred in accordance with our Articles of Association and Nasdaq’s rules and regulations.
Class B common shares
Each Class B common share will be converted into one Class A common share automatically upon any transfer of such Class B common share, whether or not for value, except for certain limited transfers described in our Articles of Association. Upon conversion of Class B common shares into Class A common shares, the resulting Class A common shares may be transferred, subject to any restrictions under applicable law.
Tag-along
Our Articles of Association provide that, subject to certain exceptions, if, in one or a series of transactions, (i) the controlling shareholder transfers Common Shares (as defined in our Articles of Association) representing our Voting Control (as defined in our Articles of Association) to a person or group of persons acting in concert, or (ii)
15


the controlling shareholder transfers all or part of its Common Shares to a person or group of persons acting in concert and such a person or group of persons obtain Voting Control within 12 months from the acquisition of the controlling shareholder’s Common Shares or from the receipt of payment by the controlling shareholder (such person or group of persons acting in concert described in (i) or (ii), the “new controlling shareholder”), then the new controlling shareholder shall make a tender offer or exchange offer (the “Offer”) to all holders of Class A common shares, pursuant to which the holders of Class A common shares shall have the right to elect to receive a price for each Class A common share equivalent to the weighted average price per share paid by the new controlling shareholder for the acquisition of Common Shares from the controlling shareholder during the 12-month period prior to the acquisition of Voting Control by the new controlling shareholder.
The new controlling shareholder shall commence the Offer within 30 days after the consummation acquisition of Voting Control; provided that if any filing with or approval by the SEC or other securities regulator or stock exchange is required under any applicable law in connection with such Offer, the new controlling shareholder shall make such applicable filings or seek such approval within 30 days after acquisition of Voting Control of the Company and procure that the Offer is commenced as soon as reasonably practicable thereafter.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, the obligation to make an Offer shall not apply:
if the transfer of Voting Control or the transfer of all or part of the controlling shareholder’s Common Shares occurs as a result of (i) a public offering, (ii) a business combination, (iii) a tender offer or exchange offer conducted by a third party and addressed to all holders of Class A common shares, or (iv) open market transactions on a stock exchange;
in connection with any transfer to affiliates, heirs or successors of the controlling shareholder;
in connection with any transfer to one or more trustees of a trust established for the benefit of the controlling shareholder or an affiliate of the controlling shareholder;
in connection with any transfer to a partnership, corporation or other entity exclusively owned or controlled by the controlling shareholder or an affiliate of the controlling shareholder; or
in connection with any transfer to organizations that are exempt from taxation under Section 501(3)(c) of the United States Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (or any successor thereto).
For the purposes of the tag along rights, “controlling shareholder” means a shareholder or group of shareholders holding the Voting Control and “Voting Control” means the ownership, directly or indirectly, of shares possessing more than fifty per cent (50%) of the voting power of the Company.
Share Repurchase
The Companies Act and our Articles of Association permit us to purchase our own shares, subject to certain restrictions. Our board of directors may only exercise this power on behalf us, subject to the Companies Act, our Articles of Association and to any applicable requirements imposed from time to time by the SEC; or the applicable stock exchange on which our securities are listed, including Nasdaq.
Dividends and Capitalization of Profits
We have not adopted a dividend policy with respect to payments of any future dividend. Our board of directors has decided that it is not necessary to have a dividend policy because all of our dividend rules are set forth in our Articles of Association Subject to the Companies Act, our shareholders may, by resolution passed by a simple majority of the voting rights entitled to vote at a general meeting, declare dividends (including interim dividends) to be paid to shareholders, but no dividend shall be declared in excess of the amount recommended by our board of directors. Our board of directors may also declare dividends. Dividends may be declared and paid out of funds lawfully available to us. Except as otherwise provided by the rights attached to shares and our Articles of Association, all dividends shall be paid in proportion to the number of Class A common shares or Class B common shares a shareholder holds at the date the dividend is declared (or such other date as may be set as a record date); in each case other than: (1) any other share class with preference over Class A common shares and Class B common
16


shares eventually created, and (2) the partial payment of dividends to shares that are not fully paid up (as to par value).
The holders of Class A common shares and Class B common shares shall be entitled to share equally in any dividends that may be declared in respect of our common shares from time to time. In the event that a dividend is paid in the form of Class A common shares or Class B common shares, or rights to acquire Class A common shares or Class B common shares, (1) the holders of Class A common shares shall receive Class A common shares, or rights to acquire Class A common shares, as the case may be and (2) the holders of Class B common shares shall receive Class B common shares, or rights to acquire Class B common shares, as the case may be.
Appointment, Disqualification and Removal of Directors
We are managed by our board of directors. Our Articles of Association provide that our board of directors will be composed of such number of directors as a majority of directors in office may determine, provided that unless otherwise determined by our shareholders by special resolution, our board of directors shall consist of at least three and up to twelve directors. Our Articles of Association do not include a mandatory retirement age. Our Articles of Association also allow additional directors to be appointed through ordinary resolution. Our Articles of Association provide that our board of directors must include at least 20% of the total number of directors or two directors (whichever is greater) which are independent directors.
Shareholders appoint directors through ordinary resolution, which requires the affirmative vote of a simple majority of those shareholders attending and voting in person or by proxy at a quorate general meeting. Each director shall be appointed for a two-year term, unless they resign or their office is vacated earlier, provided, however, that such term shall be extended beyond two years in the event that no successor has been appointed (in which case such term shall be extended to the date on which such successor has been appointed).
We may also enter into agreements with one or more shareholders granting them the right to appoint and remove one or more directors on such terms as our board of directors may determine from time to time, and such directors may only be removed in accordance with the terms of such agreements and as otherwise set out in our Articles of Association.
Grounds for Removing a Director
A director may be removed with or without cause by ordinary resolution (requiring the affirmative vote of a simple majority of those shareholders attending and voting in person or by proxy at a quorate general meeting). The notice of general meeting must contain a statement of the intention to remove the director and must be served on the director not less than ten calendar days before the meeting. The director is entitled to attend the meeting and be heard on the motion for their removal.
The office of a director will be vacated automatically if such director (1) becomes prohibited by law from being a director; (2) becomes bankrupt or makes an arrangement or composition with his creditors; (3) dies or is in the opinion of all his or her co-directors, becomes incapable by reason of mental disorder of discharging his duties as director; (4) resigns his or her office by notice to us; or (5) has for three consecutive meetings of the board of directors been absent without permission of the directors, and the remaining directors resolve that his or her office be vacated.
Proceedings of our Board of Directors
Our business is to be managed and conducted by our board of directors. The quorum necessary for a board meeting shall be a simple majority of the directors then in office (but not less than two directors), and business at any meeting shall be decided by a majority of votes.
Subject to the provisions of our Articles of Association, our board of directors may regulate its proceedings as they determine is appropriate. Board meetings shall be held at least once every calendar quarter and shall take place either in Belo Horizonte, Brazil or at such other place, including virtually, as the directors may determine. The
17


independent members of our board of directors will also hold meetings separate from the other members of our board of directors at least once every calendar quarter.
Subject to the provisions of our Articles of Association, to any directions given by ordinary resolution of our shareholders and Nasdaq listing rules, our board of directors may from time to time at its discretion exercise all of our powers, including, subject to the Companies Act, the power to issue debentures, bonds and other securities of the company, whether outright or as collateral security for any debt, liability or obligation of our Company or of any third party.
Inspection of Books and Records
Holders of our shares have no general right under Cayman Islands law to inspect or obtain copies of the list of shareholders or our corporate records. However, our board of directors may determine from time to time whether and to what extent our accounting records and books shall be open to inspection by shareholders. Notwithstanding the above, our Articles of Association provide that the Company's annual accounts shall be presented at each annual general meeting.
Register of Members
Our Class A common shares are held through DTC, and DTC or Cede & Co., as nominee for DTC, will be recorded in the shareholders’ register as the holder of Class A common shares.
Under Cayman Islands law, we must keep a register of members that includes:
the names and addresses of the shareholders, a statement of the shares held by each member, and of the amount paid or agreed to be considered as paid, on the shares of each member;
whether voting rights attach to the shares in issue;
the date on which the name of any person was entered on the register as a member; and
the date on which any person ceased to be a member.
Under Cayman Islands law, our register of members is prima facie evidence of the matters set out therein (i.e. the register of members will raise a rebuttable presumption) and a shareholder registered in the register of members is deemed as a matter of Cayman Islands law to have prima facie legal title to the shares as set against his or her name in the register of members. The shareholders recorded in the register of members should be deemed to have legal title to the shares set against their name.
However, there are certain limited circumstances where an application may be made to a Cayman Islands court for a determination on whether the register of members reflects the correct legal position. Further, the Cayman Islands court has the power to order that the register of members maintained by a company should be rectified where it considers that the register of members does not reflect the correct legal position. If an application for an order for rectification of the register of members were made in respect of our common shares, then the validity of such shares may be subject to re-examination by a Cayman Islands court.
Exempted Company
We are an exempted company with limited liability under the Companies Act. The Companies Act distinguishes between ordinary resident companies and exempted companies. Where the proposed activities of a company are to be carried out mainly outside of the Cayman Islands, the registrant can apply for registration as an exempted company. The requirements for an exempted company are essentially the same as for an ordinary company except for the exemptions and privileges listed below:
an exempted company does not have to file an annual return of its shareholders with the Registrar of Companies;
an exempted company’s register of shareholders is not open to inspection;
18


an exempted company does not have to hold an annual general meeting;
an exempted company may issue shares with no par value;
an exempted company may obtain an undertaking against the imposition of any future taxation (such undertakings are usually given for 20 years in the first instance);
an exempted company may register by way of continuation in another jurisdiction and be deregistered in the Cayman Islands;
an exempted company may register as a limited duration company; and
an exempted company may register as a segregated portfolio company.
“Limited liability” means that the liability of each shareholder is limited to the amount unpaid by the shareholder on the shares of the company (except in exceptional circumstances, such as involving fraud, the establishment of an agency relationship or an illegal or improper purpose or other circumstances in which a court may be prepared to pierce or lift the corporate veil).
We are subject to reporting and other informational requirements of the Exchange Act, as applicable to foreign private issuers. Except as otherwise disclosed in this prospectus, we currently intend to comply with Nasdaq rules in lieu of following home country practice.
Anti-Takeover Provisions in our Articles of Association
Some provisions of our Articles of Association may discourage, delay or prevent a change in control or management that shareholders may consider favorable. In particular, our capital structure concentrates ownership of voting rights in the hands of holders of Class B common shares. These provisions, which are summarized below, are expected to discourage coercive takeover practices and inadequate takeover bids. These provisions are also designed to encourage persons seeking to acquire control to first negotiate with our board of directors. However, these provisions could also have the effect of discouraging others from attempting hostile takeovers and, as a consequence, they may also inhibit temporary fluctuations in the market price of the Class A common shares that often result from actual or rumored hostile takeover attempts. These provisions may also have the effect of preventing changes in our management. It is possible that these provisions could make it more difficult to accomplish transactions that shareholders may otherwise deem to be in their best interests.
Two Classes of Common Shares
Our Class B common shares are entitled to 10 votes per share, while the Class A common shares are entitled to one vote per share. Since our controlling shareholder owns all of the Class B common shares, they have the ability to elect a majority of the directors and to determine the outcome of most matters submitted for a vote of shareholders. This concentrated voting control could discourage others from initiating any potential merger, takeover, or other change of control transaction that other shareholders may view as beneficial.
So long as the controlling shareholder has the ability to determine the outcome of most matters submitted to a vote of shareholders, third parties may be deterred in their willingness to make an unsolicited merger, takeover, or other change of control proposal, or to engage in a proxy contest for the appointment of directors. As a result, the fact that we have two classes of common shares may have the effect of depriving you as a holder of Class A common shares of an opportunity to sell Class A common shares at a premium over prevailing market prices and make it more difficult to replace our directors and management.
Preferred Shares
Our board of directors is given broad powers to issue one or more classes or series of shares with preferred rights. Such preferences may include, for example, dividend rights, conversion rights, redemption privileges, enhanced voting powers and liquidation preferences.
19


Despite the anti-takeover provisions described above, under Cayman Islands law, our board of directors may only exercise the rights and powers granted to them under the Articles of Association and the Companies Act, for what they believe in good faith to be in our best interests.
Protection of Non-Controlling Shareholders
The Grand Court of the Cayman Islands may, on the application of shareholders holding not less than one fifth of our shares in issue, appoint an inspector to examine our affairs and report thereon in a manner as the Grand Court shall direct.
Subject to the provisions of the Companies Act, any shareholder may petition the Grand Court of the Cayman Islands which may make a winding up order, if the court is of the opinion that this winding up is just and equitable.
Notwithstanding the U.S. securities laws and regulations that are applicable to us, general corporate claims against us by our shareholders must, as a general rule, be based on the general laws of contract or tort applicable in the Cayman Islands or their individual rights as shareholders as established by our Articles of Association.
The Cayman Islands courts ordinarily would be expected to follow English case law precedents, which permit a minority shareholder to commence a representative action against us, or derivative actions in our name, to challenge: (1) an act which is ultra vires or illegal; (2) an act which constitutes a fraud against the minority and the wrongdoers themselves are control shareholders; and (3) an irregularity in the passing of a resolution that requires a qualified (or special) majority.
Restricted Shares
Except as disclosed in our most recent Annual Report on Form 20-F under the caption “Item 7. Major Shareholders and Related Party Transactions―B. Related Party Transactions―Shareholders’ Agreements—Shareholders’ Agreement with SoftBank,” no shareholders of Inter & Co have formal registration rights. Holders of restricted or control shares, entities controlled by them or their permitted transferees will be able to sell their shares in the public market from time to time without registering them, subject to certain limitations on the timing, amount and method of those sales imposed by regulations promulgated by the SEC.

ENFORCEMENT OF CIVIL LIABILITIES
We are incorporated under the laws of the Cayman Islands as an exempted company with limited liability. We are registered in the Cayman Islands because of certain benefits associated with being a Cayman Islands company, such as political and economic stability, an effective judicial system, a favorable tax system, the absence of foreign exchange control or currency restrictions and the availability of professional and support services. However, the Cayman Islands have a less prescriptive body of securities laws as compared to the United States.
We have been advised by our Cayman Islands legal counsel, Maples and Calder (Cayman) LLP, that the courts of the Cayman Islands are unlikely (i) to recognize or enforce against us judgments of courts of the United States predicated upon the civil liability provisions of the securities laws of the United States or any state; and (ii) in original actions brought in the Cayman Islands to impose liabilities against us predicated upon the civil liability provisions of the securities laws of the United States or any state, so far as the liabilities imposed by those provisions are penal in nature. In those circumstances, although there is no statutory enforcement in the Cayman Islands of judgments obtained in the United States, the courts of the Cayman Islands will recognize and enforce a foreign money judgment of a foreign court of competent jurisdiction without retrial on the merits based on the principle that a judgment of a competent foreign court imposes upon the judgment debtor an obligation to pay the sum for which judgment has been given provided certain conditions are met. For a foreign judgment to be enforced in the Cayman Islands, such judgment must be final and conclusive and for a liquidated sum, and must not be in respect of taxes or a fine or penalty, inconsistent with a Cayman Islands judgment in respect of the same matter, impeachable on the grounds of fraud or obtained in a manner, and or be of a kind the enforcement of which is, contrary to natural justice or the public policy of the Cayman Islands (awards of punitive or multiple damages may well be held to be contrary to public policy). A Cayman Islands Court may stay enforcement proceedings if concurrent proceedings have been brought elsewhere.
Substantially all of our assets are located outside the United States, in Brazil. In addition, all of the members of our board of directors and all of our officers are residents of Brazil and all or a substantial portion of their respective assets are located outside the United States. As a result, it may be difficult for investors to effect service of process within the United States upon us or these persons, or to enforce against us or them judgments obtained in United States courts, including judgments predicated upon the civil liability provisions of the federal securities laws of the United States, any state in the United States or other jurisdiction outside Brazil.
As a result, two litigation scenarios may arise out of this transaction: (1) a claim being filed outside Brazil; and (2) a claim being filed in Brazil.
(1)A claim filed outside Brazil: In the case of a party filing a lawsuit related, for instance, to the offering within the United States or within any other country; or pursuing the enforcement of a foreign award based on civil liability provisions of the federal securities laws of the United States or the laws of any other country.
We believe that a judgment of a United States court for civil liabilities predicated upon the federal securities laws of the United States may be enforced in Brazil, subject to certain requirements described below. We believe that a judgment against us, the members of our board of directors or our executive officers obtained in the United States would be enforceable in Brazil, without reconsideration of the merits of the original lawsuit, upon recognition of that judgment by the Brazilian Superior Court of Justice (Superior Tribunal de Justiça), or STJ. Decisions on interlocutory measures may likewise be enforced in Brazil in accordance with applicable laws. Recognition will occur, according to Articles 963 and 964 of the Brazilian Code of Civil Procedure (Law No. 13,105/2015, as amended), if the foreign decision:
fulfills all formalities required for its enforceability under the laws of the place or jurisdiction in which the decision was rendered;
is issued by a court or competent authority of the country in which the judgment is made, after proper service of process on the parties is made in accordance with applicable law, considering that service of process on individuals in Brazil must comply with applicable Brazilian law, or after sufficient evidence of
21


the parties’ absence has been given, in accordance with the applicable law of the jurisdiction where the foreign judgment was entered;
is not rendered in an action upon which Brazilian courts have exclusive jurisdiction, pursuant to the provisions of article 23 of the Brazilian Code of Civil Procedure (Law No. 13,105/2015, as amended);
is final and/or not subject to appeal (res judicata) in the jurisdiction in which it was issued;
there is no conflict between the foreign award and a previous final and binding (res judicata) judgment on the same matter and involving the same parties issued in Brazil;
is duly apostilled by a competent authority of the United States, according to the Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization for Foreign Public Documents dated as of October 5, 1961 authentication, or the Hague Convention. If such decision emanates from a country that is not signatory of the Hague Convention, it must be duly authenticated by a Brazilian Diplomatic Office or Consulate over the place the award is rendered;
is accompanied by a sworn translation into Portuguese made by a certified translator in Brazil, unless an exemption is provided by an international treaty to which Brazil is a signatory; and
is not contrary to Brazilian national sovereignty, good morals or public policy and does not violate the dignity of the human person (as set forth in Brazilian law).
The judicial recognition process before the STJ may be time consuming and may also give rise to difficulties in enforcing such foreign judgment in Brazil. Accordingly, we cannot assure you that judicial recognition of a foreign judgment would be successful, that the judicial recognition process would be conducted in a timely manner or that a Brazilian court would enforce a judgment of countries other than Brazil. Upon its recognition by the STJ, the enforcement of the judgment is delegated to a lower federal court.
As established by article 965 of the Brazilian Code of Civil Procedures, after being recognized by the STJ the international judgment must be enforced before the competent federal court, at the request of the interested party and in accordance with Brazilian norms. This can also be time-consuming and expensive.
(2)A claim filed in Brazil: We believe that original actions may be brought in connection with this offering predicated on the federal securities laws of the United States in Brazilian courts and that, subject to applicable Brazilian laws and provided that Brazilian courts can assert jurisdiction over the particular lawsuit, Brazilian courts may enforce liabilities in such actions against us or the members of our board of directors or our executive officers and certain advisors. The application of a foreign body of law by Brazilian courts may be troublesome, as Brazilian courts consistently base their decisions on domestic law, or refrain from applying a foreign body of law for a number of reasons. Although remote, there is a risk that Brazilian courts, considering relevant case-by-case rationale, may dismiss a petition to apply a foreign body of law and may adopt Brazilian laws to adjudicate the case. In any case, we cannot assure you that Brazilian courts will confirm their jurisdiction to rule on such matter, which will depend on the connection of the case to Brazil and, therefore, must be analyzed on a case-by-case basis.
In addition, a plaintiff (whether Brazilian or non-Brazilian) who resides outside Brazil or is outside Brazil during the course of the litigation in Brazil and who does not own real property in Brazil, must post a bond to guarantee the payment of the defendant’s legal fees and court expenses in connection with court procedures for the collection of money, except in the case of (1) enforcement of an extrajudicial enforcement instrument (a title that shall be enforced in Brazilian courts without a review on the merits and enables the creditor with the possibility of immediate attachment of assets, or titulo executivo extrajudicial); (2) enforcement of a judgment, including foreign judgments that have been duly recognized by the STJ; (3) counterclaims; and (4) an exemption is provided by an international agreement or treaty to which Brazil is a signatory, as set forth under Article 83, 1st paragraph of the Brazilian Code of Civil Procedure.
22


If proceedings are brought in the courts of Brazil seeking to enforce our obligations with respect to our Class A common shares, claim and payment shall be made in reais. Any judgment rendered in Brazilian courts in respect of any payment obligations with respect to our Class A common shares would be expressed in reais.
We have also been advised that the ability of a judgment creditor to satisfy a judgment by attaching certain assets of the defendant in Brazil is governed and limited by provisions of Brazilian law to the extent that the assets are located in Brazil.
We have appointed Cogency Global Inc. as our agent upon whom process may be served in any action brought against it under the securities laws of the United States.

TAXATION
Material income tax consequences relating to the purchase, ownership and disposition of any of the securities offered by this prospectus will be set forth in the applicable prospectus supplement relating to the offering of those securities.
24


SELLING SHAREHOLDERS
Selling shareholders to be named in an applicable prospectus supplement may, from time to time, offer and sell some or all of the equity securities held by them pursuant to this prospectus and the applicable prospectus supplement. Such selling shareholders may sell equity securities held by them to or through underwriters, dealers or agents or directly to purchasers or as otherwise set forth in the applicable prospectus supplement. See “Plan of Distribution.” Such selling shareholders may also sell, transfer or otherwise dispose of some or all of the equity securities held by them in transactions exempt from the registration requirements of the Securities Act.
We will provide you with a prospectus supplement, which will set forth the name of each selling shareholder, the number of equity securities beneficially owned by such selling shareholder and the number of equity securities they are offering. The applicable prospectus supplement also will disclose whether any of the selling shareholders have held any position or office with, have been employed by or otherwise have had a material relationship with us during the three years prior to the date of the applicable prospectus supplement.
25


PLAN OF DISTRIBUTION
At the time of offering any securities, we will supplement the following summary of the plan of distribution with a description of the offering, including the particular terms and conditions thereof, set forth in an applicable prospectus supplement relating to those securities.
Each prospectus supplement with respect to Class A common shares will set forth the terms of the offering of those Class A common shares, including the name or names of any underwriters or agents, the price of such Class A common shares and the net proceeds to us from such sale, any underwriting discounts, commissions or other items constituting underwriters’ or agents’ compensation, any discount or concessions allowed or reallowed or paid to dealers and any securities exchanges on which those Class A common shares may be listed.
We and any selling shareholder may sell the Class A common shares:
through agents;
to or through underwriters or dealers;
directly to purchasers; or
through a combination of any of these methods of sale.
Any underwriters or agents will be identified and their discounts, commissions and other items constituting underwriters’ compensation and any securities exchanges on which the Class A common shares are listed will be described in the applicable prospectus supplement.
Underwriters
If we or any selling shareholders use underwriters in the offering, we or the selling shareholders will enter into an underwriting agreement, and a prospectus supplement will set forth the names of the underwriters and the terms of the offering. The underwriters will acquire securities for their own account and may resell the securities from time to time in one or more transactions, including negotiated transactions, at a fixed public offering price or at varying prices determined at the time of sale. Unless otherwise stated in the prospectus supplement, various conditions to the underwriters’ obligation to purchase securities apply, and the underwriters will be obligated to purchase all of the securities contemplated in an offering if they purchase any of such securities. Any public offering price and any discounts or concessions allowed or reallowed or paid to dealers may be changed from time to time.
We or any selling shareholders may enter into derivative or other hedging transactions with third parties, or sell securities not covered by this prospectus to third parties in privately negotiated transactions. If the applicable prospectus supplement indicates, in connection with those derivative or hedging instruments, the third parties may sell securities covered by this prospectus and the applicable prospectus supplement, including in short sale transactions. If so, the third party may use securities covered by this prospectus including securities pledged by us or any selling shareholders or borrowed from us, any selling shareholders or others to settle those sales or to close out any related open borrowing of stock and may use securities received from us in settlement of those derivatives to close out any related open borrowings of stock. The third party in such sale transactions will be an underwriter and, if not identified in this prospectus, will be identified in the applicable prospectus supplement (or in a post-effective amendment). We or any selling shareholders may also sell Class A common shares short using this prospectus and deliver Class A common shares covered by this prospectus to close out such short positions, or loan or pledge Class A common shares to financial institutions that in turn may sell the Class A common shares using this prospectus. We or any selling shareholders may pledge or grant a security interest in some or all of the securities covered by this prospectus to support a derivative or hedging position or other obligation and, if we or the selling shareholders default in the performance of its obligations, the pledgees or secured parties may offer and sell the securities from time to time pursuant to this prospectus.
If the prospectus supplement so indicates, we or any selling shareholders may authorize agents and underwriters or dealers to solicit offers by certain purchasers to purchase the securities from us at the public offering price set forth in the prospectus supplement. These contracts will be subject to only those conditions set forth in the
26


prospectus supplement, and the prospectus supplement will set forth the commission payable for solicitation of such offers.
Certain persons participating in this offering may engage in transactions that stabilize, maintain or otherwise affect the price of the securities. Specifically, the underwriters, if any, may over-allot in connection with the offering, and may bid for, and purchase, the securities in the open market.
Dealers
If we or any selling shareholders use dealers in the sale, unless otherwise indicated in the prospectus supplement, we or the selling shareholders will sell securities to the dealers as principals. The dealers may then resell the securities to the public at varying prices that the dealers may determine at the time of resale.
Agents and Direct Sales
We or any selling shareholders may sell securities directly or through agents that we or the selling shareholders designate. The prospectus supplement names any agent involved in the offering and sale and states any commissions we or the selling shareholders will pay to that agent. Unless indicated otherwise in the prospectus supplement, any agent is acting on a best efforts basis for the period of its appointment.
Institutional Investors
Unless otherwise indicated in the prospectus supplement, we or any selling shareholders will authorize underwriters, dealers or agents to solicit offers from various institutional investors to purchase securities. In this case, payment and delivery will be made on a future date that the prospectus supplement specifies. The underwriters, dealers or agents may impose limitations on the minimum amount that any institutional investor can purchase. They may also impose limitations on the portion of the aggregate amount of the securities that they may sell. These institutional investors include (i) commercial and savings banks; (ii) insurance companies; (iii) pension funds; (iv) investment companies; (v) educational and charitable institutions; and (vi) other similar institutions as we or any selling shareholders may approve.
The obligations of any of these purchasers pursuant to delayed delivery and payment arrangements will not be subject to any conditions. However, one exception applies. An institution’s purchase of the particular securities cannot at the time of delivery be prohibited under the laws of any jurisdiction that govern the validity of the arrangements or the performance by us or the institutional investor.
Indemnification
Agreements that we or any selling shareholders have entered into or may enter into with underwriters, dealers or agents may entitle them to indemnification by us against various civil liabilities. These include liabilities under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. The agreements may also entitle them to contribution for payments which they may be required to make as a result of these liabilities. Underwriters, dealers or agents may be customers of, engage in transactions with, or perform services for, us in the ordinary course of business.

PART II
INFORMATION NOT REQUIRED IN PROSPECTUS
Item 8. Indemnification of Directors and Officers.
Cayman Islands law does not limit the extent to which a company’s articles of association may provide indemnification of officers and directors, except to the extent that it may be held by the Cayman Islands courts to be contrary to public policy, such as providing indemnification against civil fraud or the consequences of committing a crime.
Inter & Co’s Articles of Association provide that each director or officer of the registrant shall be indemnified out of the assets of the registrant against all actions, proceedings, costs, charges, expenses, losses, damages, or liabilities, judgments, fines, settlements and other amounts (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses and amounts paid in settlement and costs of investigation, or collectively Losses, incurred or sustained by such directors or officers, other than by reason of such person’s dishonesty, willful default or fraud, in or about the conduct of our business or affairs (including as a result of any mistake of judgment) or in the execution or discharge of such person’s duties, powers, authorities or discretions, including without prejudice to the generality of the foregoing, any Losses incurred by such director or officer in defending or investigating (whether successfully or otherwise) any civil, criminal, investigative and administrative proceedings concerning or in any way related to Inter & Co or its affairs in any court, whether in the Cayman Islands or elsewhere.
Also, the registrant maintains director’s and officer’s liability insurance covering its directors and officers with respect to general civil liability, including liabilities under the Securities Act, which he or she may incur in his or her capacity as such.
Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act may be permitted to directors, officers or persons controlling us under the foregoing provisions, we have been informed that, in the opinion of the SEC, such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and is therefore unenforceable.
Item 9. Exhibits.

**    Incorporated by reference.
Item 10. Undertakings.
(a)The undersigned registrant hereby undertakes:
(1)To file, during any period in which offers or sales are being made, a post-effective amendment to this registration statement:
i.To include any prospectus required by Section 10(a)(3) of the Securities Act;
II-1


ii.To reflect in the prospectus any facts or events arising after the effective date of the registration statement (or the most recent post-effective amendment thereof) which, individually or in the aggregate, represent a fundamental change in the information set forth in the registration statement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any increase or decrease in volume of securities offered (if the total dollar value of securities offered would not exceed that which was registered) and any deviation from the low or high end of the estimated maximum offering range may be reflected in the form of prospectus filed with the SEC pursuant to Rule 424(b) if, in the aggregate, the changes in volume and price represent no more than 20% change in the maximum aggregate offering price set forth in the “Calculation of Registration Fee” table in the effective registration statement;
iii.To include any material information with respect to the plan of distribution not previously disclosed in the registration statement or any material change to such information in the registration statement;
provided, however, that paragraphs (a)(1)(i), (a)(1)(ii) and (a)(1)(iii) above do not apply if the information required to be included in a post-effective amendment by those paragraphs is contained in reports filed with or furnished to the SEC by the registrant pursuant to Section 13 or Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act that are incorporated by reference in the registration statement or is contained in a form of prospectus filed pursuant to Rule 424(b) that is part of this registration statement;
(2)That, for the purpose of determining any liability under the Securities Act, each such post-effective amendment shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof;
(3)To remove from registration by means of a post-effective amendment any of the securities being registered which remain unsold at the termination of the offering;
(4)To file a post-effective amendment to the registration statement to include any financial statements required by Item 8.A. of Form 20-F at the start of any delayed offering or throughout a continuous offering. Financial statements and information otherwise required by Section 10(a)(3) of the Securities Act need not be furnished, provided that the registrant includes in the prospectus, by means of a post-effective amendment, financial statements required pursuant to this paragraph (a)(4) and other information necessary to ensure that all other information in the prospectus is at least as current as the date of those financial statements. Notwithstanding the foregoing, a post-effective amendment need not be filed to include financial statements and information required by Section 10(a)(3) of the Securities Act or Item 8.A. of Form 20-F if such financial statements and information are contained in periodic reports filed with or furnished to the SEC by the registrant pursuant to Section 13 or Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act that are incorporated by reference in this registration statement;
(5)That, for the purpose of determining liability under the Securities Act to any purchaser:
(A)Each prospectus filed by the registrant pursuant to Rule 424(b)(3) shall be deemed to be part of the registration statement as of the date the filed prospectus was deemed part of and included in the registration statement; and
(B)Each prospectus required to be filed pursuant to Rule 424(b)(2), (b)(5), or (b)(7) as part of the registration statement in reliance on Rule 430B relating to an offering made pursuant to Rule 415(a)(1)(i), (vii), or (x) for the purpose of providing the information required by Section (10)(a) of the Securities Act shall be deemed to be part of and included in the registration statement as of the earlier of the date such form of prospectus is first used after effectiveness or the date of the first contract of sale of securities in the offering described in the prospectus. As provided in Rule 430B, for liability purposes of the issuer and any person that is at that date an underwriter, such date shall be deemed to be a new effective date of the registration statement relating to the securities in the registration statement to which the prospectus relates, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona
II-2


fide offering thereof; provided, however, that no statement made in a registration statement or prospectus that is part of the registration statement or made in a document incorporated or deemed incorporated by reference into the registration statement or prospectus that is part of the registration statement will, as to a purchaser with a time of contract of sale prior to such effective date, supersede or modify any statement that was made in the registration statement or prospectus that was part of the registration statement or made in any such document immediately prior to such effective date.
(b)The undersigned registrant hereby undertakes that, for purposes of determining any liability under the Securities Act, each filing of the registrant’s annual report pursuant to Section 13(a) or 15(d) of the Exchange Act that is incorporated by reference in the registration statement shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.
(c)Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act may be permitted to directors, officers and controlling persons of the registrant pursuant to the foregoing provisions, or otherwise, the registrant has been advised that in the opinion of the SEC such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities (other than the payment by the registrant of expenses incurred or paid by a director, officer or controlling person of such registrant in the successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person in connection with the securities being registered, the registrant will, unless in the opinion of its counsel the matter has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether such indemnification by it is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.
