Comments from the CEO

Renato Alves Vale: "It is with great satisfaction that we once again present our shareholders, the market, employees, users and the public in general with the results obtained by CCR for the first quarter of 2011.

"The performance of the Brazilian economy continues to support the results presented by CCR. In 1Q11, we observed a cooling off of the growth of traffic due to the slowdown of the economy, resulting in an increase in consolidated traffic of 17.2% compared to the same period of the previous year. On comparable bases (same concessions) the growth was 9.1%.

"This performance made it possible for CCR to continue to meet its commitment to distribute dividends to its shareholders, with the payment of intermediate dividends of R$1.70/share, totaling R$ 750.4 million, last September and, also, taking into account the supplemental distribution of dividends of R$ 0.228309/share in April of this year totaling R$ 100,775,000, we reached a payout of 126.7% for the fiscal year of 2010.

"Finally, we continue to be encouraged by future prospects in view of the positive economic scenario of Brazil and its potential demands for the development of infrastructure and the expectation of new growth opportunities due to the World Cup (2014) and the Olympic Games (2016), always prioritizing capital discipline and, consequently, the creation of value for the Company and its shareholders, thus contributing to the socio-economic development of our country."
