II. JUSTIFICATION FOR AND BENEFITS OF THE OPERATION

 

2.1.                           The Merger of Valepar is one of the inseparable stages of the Operation referred to in the Proposal, which main objective is to allow Vale to improve its corporate governance practices and become a company without a defined controlling shareholder (“true corporation”).

 

2.2.                           The management of the Company understands that the Operation will lead the Company to the adoption of higher standards of corporate governance, which may generate benefits both for the Company as well as its shareholders, as follows: (i) the adoption of better practices of corporate governance stimulates the alignment of interests between the various groups of shareholders and between shareholders and directors of the Company and enhances the role of its Board of Directors; (ii) the possible increase in liquidity of the shares held by the Company’s shareholders, who will be able to enjoy the same rights and benefits with shares of a single type and class (except for the Golden Shares held by the Federal Government, which shall continue with certain veto rights), should there occur a conversion of all the class A shares of preferred stock into shares of common stock; (iii) the possible increase of access to the capital markets, to the extent in which the adoption of better practices of corporate governance and the unification of the types and classes of shares, if implemented, will allow Vale to meet the prerequisites for the special segments of listing with the highest level of corporate

 

3



 

governance in the Brazilian capital markets, such as the Novo Mercado; (iv) the reduction of the percentage of the current controlling block in the total number of shares of common stock issued by the Company; and (v) the expectation of a minimum number of independent board members (20% of the total number of members), as required by the regulation of the Novo Mercado.

 

2.3.                           If the Minimum Acceptance to the Voluntary Conversion is obtained, at least 82.82% of the capital stock of the Company will come to be represented by shares of common stock.

 

2.4.                           By amendment the Bylaws of the Company, as much possible, to the requirements of the Novo Mercado, a higher standard of corporative governance in the Brazilian capital markets, the new Bylaws will assure important rights for the shareholders of Vale, such as the meeting of the requirements of the Novo Mercado relating to: (i) the composition of the Board of Directors by independent members; (ii) the equal treatment assured to the shareholders of common stock in a possible public offering of shares (“POS”) for disposal of control; (iii) the performance of a mandatory POS if some shareholder or investor or group of shareholders or investors consolidate a stake equal to or greater than 25% (twenty-five percent) of the total amount of shares of common stock or of the capital stock of the Company; and (iv) the solution of conflicts by means of an arbitration process to be filed at the Câmara de Arbitragem de Mercado (“CAM”).

 

2.5. The fact that the Proposal establishes the commitment of Valepar Shareholders not to exercise the right to vote in the resolutions about the Voluntary Conversion and about the Merger of Valepar allows the other shareholders of Vale to decide freely, based on their own assessments and without interference from the controlling shareholders, the acceptance or not of the terms of the Merger of Valepar and of the Voluntary Conversion and, consequently, decide regarding the equality nature of the exchange ratios proposed for the Merger of Valepar and for the Voluntary Conversion.

 

2.6.                           On the side of Valepar, the Operation is justified by the benefits described above, but also in view of the suitability of the relations of exchange and of the liquidity that it will assure to all the shareholders of Valepar, who will come to hold, directly, shares of a publicly traded company with highly negotiated shares in the capital markets.

 

III. BASES OF THE MERGER

 

III.1. Corporate Structure

 

3.1. The capital stock of Valepar, on this date, is R$14,132,724,606.92 (fourteen billion, one hundred and thirty-two million, seven hundred and twenty-four thousand, six hundred and six reais and ninety-two cents), totally subscribed and paid in, being divided into 1,582,187,033 (one billion, five hundred and eighty-two million, one hundred and eighty-seven thousand and thirty-three) shares, being 1,300,905,830 (one billion, three hundred million, nine hundred and five thousand, eight hundred and thirty) shares of common stock and 281,281,203 (two hundred and eighty-one million, two hundred and eighty-one thousand, two hundred and three) class “A” shares of preferred stock, all without par value.

 

3.2. The capital stock of Vale, on this date, is R$77,300,000,000.00 (seventy-seven billion, three hundred million reais), being divided into 5,244,316,120 (five billion, two hundred and forty-four million, three hundred and sixteen thousand, one hundred and twenty) book shares, being 3,217,188,402 (three billion, two hundred and seventeen million, one hundred and eighty-eight thousand, four hundred and two) shares of common stock and 2,027,127,718 (two billion,

 

4



 

twenty-seven million, one hundred and twenty-seven thousand, seven hundred and eighteen) class “A” shares of preferred stock, including 12 (twelve) special class shares, all without par value.

 

III.2. Relations of Substitution, Quantity of Shares to Be Attributed to the Shareholders of Valepar and Rights of the Shares

 

3.3. Once the Merger of Valepar becomes effective, as provided in item 7.2 of this Agreement, Valepar will be extinguished and its shareholders will receive, in substitution of the shares currently held by them, new shares issued by Vale, observing the ratio of substitution described in item 3.3.1 below.

 

3.3.1. The ratio of substitution to be adopted in the operation described in this Agreement was the object of the Proposal presented by Valepar Shareholders, considering an increase in the number of shares held by the shareholders of Valepar of 10% (ten percent) in relation to the current shareholding position of Valepar in Vale., and representing a dilution of around 3% (three percent) of the stake of the other shareholders of Vale in its capital stock. Thus, in view of the Merger of Valepar, 1.2065 new shares of common stock will be issued by Vale, in favor of the shareholders of Valepar S.A., for each share that they own. Therefore, after the effective performance of the Merger of Valepar, the current shareholders of Valepar shall come to hold, jointly, 1,908,980,340 (one billion, nine hundred and eight million, nine hundred and eighty thousand, three hundred and forty) shares of common stock issued by Vale, in place of the 1,716,435,045 (one billion, seven hundred and sixteen million, four hundred and thirty-five thousand, and forty-five) shares of common stock and 20,340,000 (twenty million, three hundred and forty thousand) class A shares of preferred stock currently held by Valepar, which will be extinguished due to the Merger of Valepar. Thus, and already considering the effects of the ratio proposed for the Voluntary Conversion of the class “A” shares of preferred stock issued by Vale held by Valepar, the Merger of Valepar will result in the issue of an additional quantity of 173,543,667 (one hundred and seventy-three million, five hundred and forty-three thousand, six hundred and sixty-seven) shares by Vale in comparison with the number of shares currently held by Valepar. The new Vale shares will be attributed to the shareholders of Valepar in the proportion currently held by them in the capital of Valepar.

 

3.3.2. After the effectiveness of the Merger of Valepar and considering the Minimum Acceptance obtained in the Voluntary Conversion of 54.09%, the capital stock of Vale will come to be divided into 5,256,884,969 (five billion, two hundred and fifty-six million, eight hundred and eighty-four thousand, nine hundred and sixty-nine) shares, being 4,353,503,833 (four billion, three hundred and fifty-three million, five hundred and three thousand, eight hundred and thirty-three) shares of common stock and 903.381.136 (nine hundred and three million, three hundred and eighty-one thousand, one hundred and thirty-six) class “A” shares of preferred stock, including 12 (twelve) special class shares.

 

3.3.3. In the calculation of the substitution ratio described in item 3.3.1 above, the goodwill balance registered in the financial statements of Valepar was not included. The possible and future use of this tax benefit by Vale will not be an object of capitalization in favor of the current shareholders of Valepar, but rather, it will be an advantage for all  shareholders of Vale.

 

3.3.4.                  The substitution ratio described in this Agreement was the object of the Proposal presented by the Shareholders of Valepar, which will be submitted for approval of the other

 

5



 

shareholders of Vale, without the participation of Valepar, in the Special Meeting of Shareholders. In this way, the substitution ratio, if the merger is approved in the Extraordinary Shareholders’ Meeting of Vale, will have been freely agreed and covenanted between the shareholders of the two Companies.

 

3.4. The shares of common stock issued by Vale to be attributed to the shareholders of Valepar as a result of the Merger of Valepar will have the same rights attributed to them as the other shares of common stock issued by Vale currently in circulation, observing the amendments that will be implemented to the rights granted to such shares because of the Amendment to the Bylaws.

 

3.5. The table below compares policy and equity advantages of the shares of common stock and class A preferred shares of all the shareholders of Vale before and after the Merger of Valepar, already taking into consideration the Amendment to the Bylaws proposal:

Appendix II - principal accounting policies adopted Cash and cash equivalents The amounts recorded as cash and cash equivalents correspond to the amount available in cash, bank deposits and short-term investments that have immediate liquidity and original maturities within three months and insignificant risk of variation on its fair value. Investment in subsidiary Subsidiary is the entity in which the Company has the power to determine financial and operating policies (voting capital). The existence and effect of possible voting rights currently exercisable or convertible are considered when evaluating whether the Company controls another entity. Investments in subsidiaries is accounted in the individual financial statements of the Company using the equity method. The initial value is recognized at acquisition cost and the goodwill paid. Subsequently, such investments are accrued by the Company's interest in the investee's results and comprehensive income, as well as reflected adjustments to shareholders' equity. This method will be suspended from the date on which the Company no longer has control or significant influence over the investee. In the event that the equity method is suspended, the investment would be treated as a financial instrument held for sale and valued at market value. Financial assets Classification The Company classifies its financial assets as loans and receivables, which are measured at amortized cost. The classification depends on the purpose for which the financial assets were acquired. The management determines the classification of the financial assets in the initial recognition. Receivables The receivables are non-derivative financial assets with fixed or defined payments, which are not quoted in an active market. They are classified as current assets, except those with a maturity of more than 12 months from the end of the reporting period (those are classified as non-current assets). The Company's receivables comprise "cash and cash equivalents" and "judicial deposits". Impairment The Company assesses, at each reporting date, whether there is evidence that the carrying amount of financial assets measured through amortized cost and long-live non-financial asset should be impaired. For financial assets measured through amortized cost, a comparative analysis is performed between the carrying amount and the expected cash flows of the asset, and when there is a indicator that the value is not recoverable, an impairment adjustment is made.

GRAPHIC

 


For long-lived non-financial assets, when impairment indication are identified, a test is conducted by comparing the recoverable value of these assets grouped at the lowest levels for which there are separately identifiable cash flows of the cash-generating unit (“CGU”) to which the asset belongs to their carrying amount. If the Company identifies the need for impairment, it is applied to each asset's cash-generating unit. The recoverable amount is the higher of value in use and fair value less costs to sell. The Company and its subsidiary determines its cash flows based on approved budgets, considering mineral reserves and mineral resources calculated by internal experts, costs and investments based on the best estimate of past performance and approved budgets, sale prices consistent with the projections used in reports published by industry considering the market price when available and appropriate. Cash flows used are designed based on the life of each cash-generating unit (consumption of reserve units in the case of minerals) and considering discount rates that reflect specific risks relating to the relevant assets in each cash-generating unit, depending on their composition and location. Goodwill balances are tested for impairment at least once a year. Non-current assets (excluding goodwill) which the Company recognized an impairment are reviewed whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the impairment may no longer be applicable. In such cases, an impairment reversal will be recognized. Allocation of net income and remuneration to shareholders At the end of the year, the Company allocates its net income among dividends and reserves in accordance with the corporate law. For dividends, the Company may use a tax benefit through the modality of interest on capital, respecting the criteria and limits defined by Brazilian legislation. The benefit attributed to the shareholders in this modality is legally considered as part of the annual minimum dividend and therefore is recorded for accounting purposes as remuneration payable in liabilities against retained earnings, based on the Company's bylaws. The distribution of dividends to the Company's shareholders is recognized as a liability in the individual financial statements and is made in accordance with the cash flow received from its subsidiary. Provisions Provisions including litigations are recognized when: the Company have a present obligation resulting from a past event, it is probable that the settlement of this obligation will result in an outflow of resources, and the amount of the obligation can be reasonably estimated. Provisions are measured at the present value of the expenditure expected to be required to settle an obligation using a pre-tax rate, which reflects current market assessments of the time value of money and the risks specific to the obligation. The increase in the obligation due to the passage of time is recognized as financial expense. Share capital The share capital is represented by non-redeemable common and preferred shares, which are classified in shareholders' equity without par value. The preferred shares have the same rights as the common shares, except for the vote to elect members of the Board of Directors.

GRAPHIC

 


Income taxes Income taxes are recognized in the income statement, except for items recognized directly in shareholders’ equity. The provision for income tax is calculated based on rules and tax rates in force. Provision for litigation Contingent liabilities are recorded and/or disclosed unless the possibility of loss is considered remote or possible by our legal counsel. The recording of the contingencies of a particular liability at the date of the balance sheet is made when the amount of the loss can reasonably be estimated. By their nature, contingencies will be resolved when one or more future events occur or cease to occur. Typically, the occurrence or not of such events does not depend on our performance, which difficulties to calculate precise estimates about the precise date and that such events will be verified. Evaluating such liabilities involves the exercise of significant management estimates and judgments regarding the results of future events.

Executive summary Appraiser Companies Valuation Notes Glossary Executive summary Context Founded on April 9, 1997, Valepar is a privately-held company, headquartered in the city of Rio de Janeiro. The unique purpose of Valepar is to participate as a controlling shareholder in Vale. Vale, a publicly traded company, is one of the world's largest mining companies and a global leader in the production of iron ore, iron pellets and nickel. The Company is present in around 30 countries and also produces manganese, iron alloys, copper, coal, gold, silver, cobalt and fertilizers. In addition to mining, its core business, Vale operates with logistics, power generation and steel manufacturing. On February 20, 2017, Valepar's shareholders announced a restructuring proposal, in which Valepar's shareholders will become shareholders directly at Vale through the incorporation of Valepar into Vale. Basis of information The base-date considered for the valuation was December 31, 2016 (“Base-Date”). Our work was based on historical audited financial statements of the Companies for December 31, 2016 and previous years. Additionally, we based our work on interviews with Vale’s management (“the Management”), with Valepar’s management and on other managerial data, additional information, written or verbal, business plans and on other projective information of the Companies, as provided by their managements. Valuation method The method used for the valuation of the Companies was the Discount Cash Flow method (“DCF”). This method consists in establish a set of operational assumptions that are used to calculate the expected future cash flows. The value of a company or a business is equivalent to the sum of the present value of the projected cash flows, discounted by a rate that adequately reward investors, taking into account the risks of the business. This method is recognized and used worldwide and is especially recommended for ongoing companies or businesses presenting positive historical operational results and prospects of future profitability. Scope and Objective According to the terms of our Proposal for professional services, the objective of our work was to perform the valuation of Valepar and Vale, using the Discount Cash Flow method, for the purposes of complying with Article 264 of Law 6,404/1976 (“Lei das SAs”).

Executive summary Appraiser Companies Valuation Notes Glossary Executive summary (cont’d) Relevant notes about the work A value analysis estimates the value of a company, business or asset, within a theoretical context, as the amount that would be received for its sale in a non-forced transaction between market participants, on a certain date. It should be noted, however, that effective negotiations may or may not reflect such conditions as they can be influenced by specific factors. Consequently, effective transactions do not necessarily occur at the estimated value in a value analysis. Our work did not take into account any synergies, strategic reasons, economies of scale, or other benefits that any specific investors might have or lose in the case of a corporate change of control. During our work, we use historical and projected information and data, provided in writing or verbally by the managements of the Companies or obtained from the sources mentioned. As all forecast are subjective and depend on personal judgments, being subject to uncertainties, we do not present the forecast as specific results to be achieved. Therefore, we are not in a position to express and we will not express an opinion on the historical data, projections and other information contained in our Report. Our work did not represent an audit in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards, nor did it represent any form of assurance, warranty or certification on the information received from the managements of the Companies or from third parties, as well as on the results obtained. Our work did not take into consideration any types of contingencies that have not been formally disclosed to us or were not recorded on the financial position of the Companies. We emphasize that any decision on the terms of any potential transaction involving the assets that are subject of our work, especially with regard to prices and values, is the sole responsibility of the managements and shareholders of the parties involved. Other analyses of companies and industries also prepared by PwC may treat market assumptions differently from the approach presented in this Report, as other departments of PwC and related companies may use analyses, reports and publications, estimates, projections and methodologies different from those used in this Report, and such analyzes, reports and publications may contain different conclusions. The sums of the individual values presented in this Report may be different from the indicated sums due to rounding. Valepar S.A. PwC May 2017 8

Executive summary Appraiser Companies Valuation Notes Glossary Information on the Companies (cont’d) Brief description of the market Mining plays a fundamental role in Brazilian economy. According to the Brazilian Mining Institute (IBRAM), the total value of Brazilian mineral production in 2016 was US$ 24 billion. There is an expectation of positive variation in Brazilian mineral production for 2017, reversing the decline initiated in 2011, due to the fall in the commodity cycle. Brazilian Ore Production by segment (in %) 2015 Non-metallics 24% Total value of Brazilian Mineral Production (US$ billions) 76% 53 cted Metallics 39 40 In the long term, the continuation of the positive conditions for the development of the national production of iron ore is expected, with emphasis on the high competitiveness of the Brazilian product in terms of production cost and ore quality. The expectation is that the mining companies continue to produce in more competitive systems. However, the low cost of production and the high quality of the Brazilian ore should continue contributing positively to the expansion of the national production. In terms of supply, the highlight in the period 2017-2021 is the maturation of Complex S11D, Vale’s largest mining complex, with a production expectation of approximately 90 million tons/year after the ramp-up of the operation. 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017 The mining sector can be divided into metallic and non-metallic minerals. The main metallic minerals are: iron ore, gold, copper, bauxite, niobium, nickel, manganese and tin. These minerals can also be classified as ferrous and non-ferrous. The main non-metallic minerals are: natural stones and coverings, coal, phosphate, kaolin, talc and pyrophyllite, sulphur, asbestos, potassium and graphite. Iron ore stands out in the sector, being responsible, in 2015, for 53% of the total production value of the segment. * Source: EMIS – Brazil Mining Sector 2016/2017; IBRAM – Brazilian Mining Production – February/2017 and Tendências Consultoria Integrada – Cenários para indicadores setoriais 2017-2021 Valepar S.A.

Executive summary Appraiser Companies Valuation Notes Glossary Valuation of the Companies Approach and valuation parameters Valuation Approach For the valuation of the Equity Value of the Companies, the discounted cash flow method (“DCF”) was used. This method estimates the value of a company or business by calculating the present value of the projected cash flows of that company or business, free to be distributed to shareholders. These cash flows include inflows and outflows, including investments necessary for the maintenance and sustaining of activities, that are predictable from the perspective of the entity’s continuity. These projections should take into consideration the business plan established by management, the perspectives for the industry sector, as well as macroeconomic aspects. The results based on the Discounted Cash Flow method reflect the value of the assets (tangible and intangible) and liabilities that contributed to the generation of future cash flows of the valued company. The DCF method is widely accepted by the market and it is used in the valuation of any company or business, as long as it presents a consistent and feasible long term business plan with perspectives of future profit generation. Main Valuation Parameters The projections of the Companies’ cash flow were prepared based on the following main parameters: • The projections were prepared in constant purchasing power currency (i.e., without inflation effects), and the amounts are expressed in Dollars (US$) and converted into Reais when necessary. The projections were based on the historical performance information of the Companies, observing the most accurate current business prospects about their future results. Vale’s cash flow projections were prepared on a consolidated basis, that is, comprising the cash flows of Vale and its subsidiaries. In the case of investees in which Vale has no control, cash flows were projected separately and incorporated into Vale's consolidated value, observing Vale’s respective stakes in these companies. In the case of the investees in which Vale has control, and consequently consolidates these investments for financial statements purposes, the cash flows were projected in full, and the non-controlling interest in these investments was subsequently subtracted. In the valuation of Valepar, as it is a holding company, the projected cash flows refers basically to the necessary expenses for the maintenance of its administrative activities. In the valuation, it was considered a 10-year projection horizon (i.e., from the Base Date until December 2026). • • • • Valepar S.A. PwC May 2017 30

Executive summary Appraiser Companies Valuation Notes Glossary Valuation of the Companies (cont’d) Approach and valuation parameters (cont’d.) • The terminal value after 2026 was calculated assuming the assumption of the continuity of the business for an indefinite period, which means that at the end of the projective period, a perpetuity, without nominal growth, was calculated. This perpetuity was applied to the last year of projected cash flow after the necessary normalization of this figure. We used the Free Cash Flow to Firm approach, which considers unleveraged projected cash flows, i.e., the effects of interest and debt amortizations are not considered. The present value of these cash flows (“Enterprise Value”) is subsequently adjusted by the value of the company's net debt and other non-operating assets and liabilities in the database, in order to reach the Equity Value. The mid-year convention was considered for the discount to present value of the projected cash flows. As the cash inflows and outflows occur throughout the year, the present value calculation should reflect the respective moments in which they occur. In other words, the cash flows which are generated at the beginning of a period should be less discounted than the ones generated at the end of such period. Therefore, for practical reasons, this convention considers that the cash flows are generated at the mid-point of each projection period. Macroeconomic Assumptions The macroeconomic assumptions considered in the valuation (see table below) were obtained in the Market Expectations System of Central Bank of Brazil (BACEN) - expectations as of March 31, 2017 - and Congressional Budget office as of March 31, 2017.

Executive summary Appraiser Companies Valuation Notes Glossary Valuation of the Companies (cont’d) Discount rate The discount rate was determined based on the WACC (Weighted Average Cost of Capital). This method measures the returns required by both debt and equity investors, weighted by their respective contributions of capital, after corporate taxes, according to the formula below: The CAPM formula is specified below:  1  (Rf   MRP  CR) Ke    1  1  r  USD D E where: WACC  Kd  1  T *  Ke * D  E E  D   Ke = Cost of equity; Rf = Risk Free: T-Bond 30Y – average of two years between the periods March/15 to March/17 (source: Bloomberg); rUSD = Inflation Rate in United States: projection of US inflation rate (average of 10 years) with Base Date on March 31, 2017 (source: Congressional Budget Office of United States); MRP = Market Risk Premium (source: PwC analyses based on different market studies); CR= Country Risk: JP Morgan index EMBI+ (Emerging Market Bond Index) 2 years (March/15 to March/17) (source: Bloomberg); Taxes - IRPJ/CSLL = 30,43% until 2024, and 34% from 2025 onwards; The unleveraged Beta (1,29) was estimated based on information of comparable companies obtained from Bloomberg (see “Additional Notes” section); and The average leverage (30% of third-party capital and 70% of equity) was estimated based on the comparable companies and observing the result of the valuation in comparison with the Company’s current debt.  Where: WACC = Weighted Average Cost of Capital: Kd = Cost of debt; Ke = Cost of equity D = Debt; E = Equity; and T = Income tax rate The WACC used in the valuation was prepared in real terms, that is, in constant purchasing power The cost of debt was considered as 4,82% in dollars, equivalent to the effective average cost of Vale’s debt. The cost of capital was estimated using the CAPM (Capital Asset Pricing Model) method. This method estimates the cost of capital from the return of a risk-free asset adding certain premiums, representing the additional return required by the shareholder to take on more risks.

Part of the costs are denominated in Dollars (US$) and part in Reais (R$), and the values in R$ have been converted to US$ at the projected real exchange rate. In 2017, an increase in operating costs was considered, mainly due to (i) higher freight costs, influenced by the increase of bunker oil price in the international market; (ii) purchase of ores from third parties; (iii) leasing of pelletizing mills; and (iv) the expectation of Real appreciation against US Dollar. In the long term, there is an expected improvement in the gross margin, mainly due to the maturation of the S11D project, which presents a series of operational improvements, such as the transport of almost all iron ore by conveyor belts. In addition, iron ore extracted from this reserve presents higher iron content, which determines a higher premium on the sales price, increasing the gross margin. Operational expenses Operational expenses mainly include selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses, research and development (R&D) expenses and pre operating and operational stoppage expenses. As well as costs, part of the expenses are denominated in Dollars (US$) and part in Reais (R$), and the values in R$ were converted to US$ at the projected real exchange rate. Investments and depreciation The projected investments refer to the fixed assets required for the continuity and sustainability of the Company's operating capacity. Property, plant and equipment are depreciated at a weighted average rate of 4,8% per year. Income tax and Social contribution For purposes of projecting income tax and social contribution, tax calculations were based on the real profit system. The income tax and social contribution combined rate considered in the projection was 34% on income before income tax, according to the real profit regime. It is worth noting that SUDAM’s tax benefit, with a 75% reduction in the IRPJ rate up to 2024 (resulting in an IRPJ/CSSL combined rate of 30,43%). It was also considered the fair value of the use of accumulated tax losses, adjusted to the final value of the valuation. CFEM costs (Financial Compensation for the Exploration of Mineral Resources) CFEM is a consideration paid to the Federal Government for the economic use of Brazilian mineral resources. CFEM rate for iron ore, copper, nickel and nitrogen fertilizer is 2% of net revenue. The rate for manganese is 3%. Valepar S.A. PwC May 2017 35

Executive summary Appraiser Companies Valuation Notes Glossary Valuation of the Companies (cont’d) Vale – Assumptions description (cont’d) Working capital The working capital was forecasted according to historical data, expressed in days of working capital, on the following current assets and liabilities: Net debt and operating and non operating assets and liabilities The approach used in the valuation was the Free Cash Flow to Firm. Thus, Vale’s net debt and non operating assets and liabilities in the Base-Date were not included in the projected cash flows. Therefore, they were adjusted to Enterprise Value in order to calculate the Company’s Equity Value. Additionally, for practical reasons, certain operational assets and liabilities were treated separately, and their values were considered on the Base-Date as additions/subtractions to the present value of the Company's cash flows. When applicable, the realization of certain items was estimated over time and calculated to present value at an appropriate discount rate. Accounts Receivable: 35 days of net revenue; Inventory: 83 days of operational costs; Accounts Payable: 88 days of purchases; and Payroll and related charges: 78% of SG&A. Perpetuity Considering that the Company's operations should continue for an indefinite period, at the end of the 10-year projective period, a terminal value was calculated as a perpetuity based on the last cash flow, normalized and stabilized, based on the perspectives of the managements of the Companies for subsequent years. It was considered a normalized Capex, estimated to keep the Company's asset base constant from 2027 onwards, enough to generate the expected production volumes for that period. Thus, it was not considered growth in perpetuity. Valepar S.A. PwC May 2017 36

Executive summary Appraiser Companies Valuation Notes Glossary Valuation of the Companies (cont’d) Valepar – Description of the adopted assumptions Valepar’s valuation assumptions Valepar’s largest asset is its investment in Vale, calculated based on its percentage of ownership in the Company's capital, applied to the Equity Value resulting from Vale’s valuation, as presented on previous pages. Another relevant asset refers to the goodwill paid on the acquisitions of stakes in Vale, whose book value is R$ 3.073 million. The original amount of this goodwill is R$ 4.783 million, affected by past amortizations. For Valepar’s valuation purposes, the value of this goodwill was considered as zero (according to CVM Instruction 319). We present below the assumptions used in valuation of Valepar according to the DCF method. Investment in Vale The value of Valepar’s investment in Vale was calculated based on Vale’s valuation using the DCF method, considering Valepar’s participation in the Company. On the Base Date, Vale’s total number of shares was 5.153.374.926, of which 1.736.775.045 were held by Valepar, resulting in a 33,70% share. As previously mentioned, the value of recorded goodwill was considered null. Cash flows Because it is a holding company, its cash flows mainly comprise general expenses necessary for the maintenance of its administrative activities. Income tax and social contribution For income tax and social contribution projection purposes, tax calculations were based on the real profit system. The income tax and social contribution combined rate considered in the projection was 34% on income before income tax, according to the real profit regime. Valepar S.A. PwC May 2017 40
