Comments from the CEO

Renato Alves Vale: "It is with great pleasure that we release the results obtained by CCR during 2Q12 to our shareholders, to the market, to our employees, to users and our various interested audiences.

"Although industrial production declined by 4.5% during the quarter compared to 2Q11, our traffic reported growth of 0.4% on a consolidated basis and, combined with a reduction in cost, contributed to an increase of 1.3 p.p. in the EBITDA margin. In addition to improved operating performance, the continuous reduction in the base interest rate (SELIC) contributed to the improvement and our financial performance and increase in net income of 37.7%.

"Supported by the strong growth and a solid financial position, CCR maintains its commitment to the distribution of dividends to our shareholders and management has proposed a distribution of intermediate dividends of R$ 0.54 per share, for a total of R$ 953.4 million.

"It is important to point out that 2Q12 was marked by the conclusion of the acquisition of two new businesses, Barcas S.A. and the integration of Transolímpica through Rio Olímpico Consortium, continuing our strategy of qualified growth, always based on capital discipline."
