The notes were not and will not be registered in accordance with the U.S. Securities Act of 1933 and may not be offered or sold in the United States of America. Consequently, they will not be registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission or with any other capital market regulatory agency or body in any other country and therefore may not be sold in the United States of America without an exemption from the applicable registration. Since the notes will not be offered or placed in Brazil, they will also not be registered with the Brazilian Securities and Exchange Commission (CVM). This Notice does not constitute an offer to sell or a request to purchase any marketable security.
