  2. 2. Message from the Board of DirectorsFor Brasil Ecodiesel, 2010 will be marked as a turning point in the Company’s business.We passed from a biodiesel producing company to an agribusiness corporation,operating in renewable energy and food sectors. To the Company it means a growthopportunity and possibility of obtaining better profitability in its business already inshort term.Year 2010 was characterized by a greater competitiveness in the biodiesel sector. Bothan increase in the number of participants and a growth in their production capacityoccurred in the sector. In this race for investments, excess idle capacity ended up bybecoming the greatest concern of the mills and, indeed, by the end of 2010, accordingto data of the National Petroleum Agency (ANP) itself, installed capacity of biodieselcompanies was 6.2 million cubic meters, a 2.6 times greater volume than marketdemand, which was 2.35 million. In practice, the biodiesel sector works with idlenessat the rate of 60%.In line with company creation motivation, we understand that the biofuel sector ishighly promising and market expansion opportunities are huge. However, as observedin biodiesel auctions held in 2010, this excess offering caused the search for volume tobring as a consequence, a price reduction. Today, the industry pleads a new regulatorymilestone that will allow growth in gradual manner of biodiesel mixing in diesel, as hasoccurred in Argentina and several European Community countries.As since establishment and up to 2010 we were a single product company, low marginsimpacted our revenues and results in 2010, especially in the 4th Quarter of 2010. Inorder to offset revenue loss, the Company has taken some initiatives for costreduction, as well as soybean crushing volume increase, which contributes to rawmaterial cost reduction.The conclusion is that although the renewable energy sector, in Brazil, alreadyconstitutes a reality, it is necessary to observe the right time to act in more aggressivemanner in expanding our share in the sector.In this scenario, the Board of Directors has established the following for the Company:(i) diversifying the product portfolio, reaching new markets and customers; (ii) notbeing solely dependent on operating in a regulated market; (iii) staying in ECO sector(so-called “green products”), company primary focus; (iv) Exploiting the opportunitiesof a publicly held company; (v) optimizing cash in projects that allow quick revenueand income growth; and (vi) focusing on short, medium and long-term growth marketsthat represent natural diversification. 2
  3. 3. In October 2010, company directors identified the opportunity to enter agribusiness, inbroad sense, with diversification and a first step toward verticalization of operations.Such decision had as motivating elements: (i) growing demand for food in the domesticand foreign market; (ii) economic development of still underdeveloped countriescreating a large consumer market; (iii) comparative and competitive advantages ofBrazilian edaphoclimatic conditions; (iv) knowledge, productivity and competitivenessin an agribusiness without subsidies; and (v) potential business intersection, which maybe completely exploited when this strategic mosaic has been completed (primaryagricultural product generation, industrialization, energy production, transportationand storage). Within this context, on 12/23/2010 the merger of Maeda S.A.Agroindustrial (“Maeda”) shares was approved, which became a wholly ownedsubsidiary of Brasil Ecodiesel.Maeda is an agricultural company with expertise in oleaginous planting, especiallycotton, soybean and corn, having under management 86 thousand-hectare plantationin 2010/11 harvest, in addition to minority interests in agricultural land valuationcompany (Jaborandi Agrícola) and a sugar and ethanol mill (Tropical Bioenergia).With this initiative, Brasil Ecodiesel has taken a decisive step toward its future Brazilianand international reference in renewable energy and food. In the stage where itstands, the Company has been transformed into a quite diversified agribusinesscorporation, at the strict level of corporate governance that BMF&BOVESPA NewMarket is.Furthermore, aiming to seek new markets, in December 2010, TAM, Curcas DieselBrasil and Brasil Ecodiesel formed a company group aiming to analyze the feasibility ofimplementing an integrated aviation bio-kerosene sustainable production project inBrazil, from agricultural and industrial production to distribution, aimed at partial,gradual replacement of fossil renewable fuel. This project is in initial research phaseand technology choice, but we understand that it may be promising after definition ofbio-kerosene specification by international regulatory agencies.On account of all this transformation at the company from this report, the Companywill split its activities into Renewable Energy, which will contain the company’sindustrial areas (biodiesel, vegetable oil and ethanol) and Food and AgriculturalCommodities, which will contain agricultural activities.In March 2011, Brasil Ecodiesel and Petrobras executed an agreement concluding anexisting process between the companies. Based on the agreement, the partiesmutually waived charging penalties regarding Biodiesel Purchase and Sale Agreements 3
  4. 4. entered into between them. To the Company, the agreement conclusion was positive,because we closed a dispute with our main customer.At last, it is worth saying that we believe that this is the best way for value generationto the company and its shareholders. We thank our customers, shareholders,collaborators and suppliers for the commitment, dedication and trust in the success ofthis Company . The Board of Directors 4
  5. 5. 1. Market Outlook 1.1. Renewable Energy 1.1.1. Biodiesel The biodiesel industry operates in a fully regulated market. Negotiations take place at quarterly auctions coordinated by ANP. Biodiesel producers rely on a single customer, Petrobras, which is responsible for selling biodiesel to fuel distributors, which in turn are responsible for mixing. In this context, the biodiesel sector has to grow and to develop into a new regulatory milestone that will ensure increasing mandatory biodiesel mixing in diesel, set today at 5%. The scenario we had in 2010 for the biodiesel industry was a strong vegetable oil price hike and large discounts at ANP (National Petroleum, Natural Gas and Biofuels Agency) auctions, which negatively impacted biodiesel producers’ profit margins. We were able to observe in the year strong discounts in auctions referring to the second semester of 2010. The 18th and 19th auctions had average discounts of, respectively, 9.24% and 24.86%, quite high rates, which prove the previous assertion. Brazil closed 2010 with a 2.4 million m³ of biodiesel production, which stands for a 49% growth against 2009. Production increase occurred due to biodiesel in diesel mixing increase in early 2010, which passed from 4% to 5%, three years before the forecast. Currently, Brazil has and authorized 6.2 million m³ production capacity, which means to say that we only produce 40% of our operating capacity. Some studies state that Brazil is already prepared to fill an eventual demand generated by a new regulatory milestone, even if it will determine a mix increase to 10%. Analysts, however, suggest that this increase will occur in gradual manner until it reaches 20% by 2020, bringing in this way positive externalities to the country. 5
  6. 6. Source: ANPOil originating from a broad range of oleaginous such as, for example, palm,soybean, cotton and other vegetables can be used for biodiesel production, inaddition to animal origin fats. Currently, this market is closely connected tosoybean production chain, which stands for on average 80% of raw materialused for biodiesel production, followed by animal fat (approx. 18%) and others(approx. 2%). It is not by chance that soybean is the main character of thisscript, because it is an already consolidated crop in the country and ininternational scope, which enables its large-scale production, making it capableof covering current needs of this biofuel in Brazil. However, this reality is liableto be altered in gradual manner in the years ahead , because there is already inof studies and researches that analyze the entrance of other more productivegrains than soybean itself, and equally sustainable. 6
  7. 7. 1.2. Food/Agricultural Commodities The macroeconomic conjuncture for agricultural commodities is quite positive, because the international market, after the outbreak of the world financial crisis that had its apex in 2008, starts to present a new breath, having developing countries in the forefront of economic growth. The good moment through which the agricultural sector has been passing recently is largely due to the greater appetite of these developing countries that have pressured demand against a supply that has not grown in the same magnitude. The result was predictable, with effects on prices to mark out consumption. The latest world supply and demand report (March 2011) published by the USDA (U.S. Department of Agriculture) draws a still high price outlook for this year, on account of production and consumption forecasts of some oleaginous. It is estimated, for example, that world soybean production is 258 million tons in 2010/2011 and consumption will reach 257 million tons. For cotton, the estimate is that production will reach 25 million tons in this harvest, consumption will be a little greater, which may reach 25.4 million tons. For corn, the estimate is an 814 million ton production opposite a projected consumption of 835 million tons. As we can see, the space between supply and demand is quite tight. 7

Production (Million Tons) 2009/10 2010/11* Variation (%) Soybean 260 258 -0.77 Cotton 22 25 13.64 Corn 812 814 0.25 Consuption (Million Ton) 2009/10 2010/11* Variation (%) Soybean 238 257 7.98 Cotton 26 25 -1.55 Corn 816 835 2.33*Projection Source USDA In order to demonstrate price dynamics in 2010, cotton presented a 104% appreciation. Likewise, corn and soybean respectively appreciated 50% and 34% last year. This price hike of agricultural commodities has several explanations. Among them are: (i) climatic effects that have negatively affected grain supply of relevant producers such as Russia and India, affecting harvest productivity; (ii) low inventories of most agricultural products; and (iii) strong demand against existing commodities supply. In the chart below, we use indexes prepared by ESALQ –Luiz de Queiroz College of Agriculture of the University of São Paulo, to illustrate price evolution in Brazil of three selected oleaginous:The advantage of Brazil against other agricultural powers is that we have a hugearea available for agriculture and appropriate climate for the development of 8
  9. 9. several crops. Additionally, the country relies on advanced technology to handleseveral agricultural products. In the crops that we operate, we are on the frontierof what is considered the most advanced in international agribusiness.Agricultural production growth in the country, in the past few years, can beexplained by greater productivity, result of adopting the best tillage practices,harvesting mechanization and using more efficient technologies. The chart belowdemonstrates that production has been growing at a greater speed than plantedarea expansion, which leads us to conclude that Brazilian land productivity in thelast years has been increasing. Source: CONABAccording to the 6th grain survey prepared by CONAB (National Supply Company)and published in March/2011, it is estimated that planted area in 2010/11 harvestwill 48.86 million hectares, i.e., 3.1% greater than planted area in 2009/2010. Asregards production, a 154.2 million ton figure is expected in 2010/2011 harvest,3.4% over the previous harvest. This figure, according to the Ministry ofAgriculture, makes 2010/ 2011 grain harvest the greatest in history.The tables below present estimated figures for planted area and soybean, corn andcotton production (2010/11 harvest). 9

Operational Performance 3.1. Renewable Energy 3.1.1. Industrial Units Currently, Brasil Ecodiesel has in operation four transesterification units, with 518.4 thousand m3/year biodiesel production capacity. In addition to the transesterification units, Brasil Ecodiesel has and intends to operate this year vegetable oil extraction units, where vegetable oil is extracted from agricultural production originating from own chain and partnerships. The map below presents the location of plants and crushers. 11
  12. 12. 3.1.2. BiodieselIn the fourth quarter of 2010 (4Q10), Brasil Ecodiesel both sales and revenuesdecreased in relation to the previous quarter, on account of the low volumesold at the 19th Biodiesel Auction, which presented high discount. In 2010aggregate, the Company sold 172.2 thousand m3 of biodiesel, 13.4% highervolume than in 2009, which was 151.9 thousand m3. 2010 billing also washigher by 6.6%, when compared to the previous year.It is relevant to recall that in December 2009 Crateús and Floriano mills weredeactivated because of the complexity and logistics costs involved in rawmaterial purchase and handling.The table below presents biodiesel sales and billing, ranked by mill. It isrelevant to emphasize that, in March 2010, Iraquara and Itaqui mills had theSocial Fuel Stamp suspended for a one-year period. 12

Vegetable Oil While the entire biodiesel sector is committed to obtaining a new regulatory milestone, aiming at resuming investments in biodiesel expansion, Brasil Ecodiesel directs its actions toward produced biodiesel cost reduction. It achieves this reduction by Rio Grande do Sul soybean grain crushing and also by improvements in the industrial process. In 2010, the Company crushed, in outsourced manner, 71,461 tons of soybean grains purchased from family farming, generating revenues amounting to R$ 35.5 million with bran sale. It is relevant to emphasize that family farming involvement in the origination process, mainly aims to obtain the Social Fuel Stamp, a necessary requirement for us to participate in the biodiesel auction solely intended for companies having the Social Fuel Stamp. 3.1.4. Sugar/Ethanol With Maeda merger, Brasil Ecodiesel became the holder a 25% interest in Tropical Bioenergia, in a partnership with BP Biofuels (50%), and LDC-SEV Bioenergia (25%). Tropical has a sugar and ethanol production unit in the Goiás State city of Edéia. Tropical Bioenergia has a 2.4 million ton grinding capacity, with 60%/40% sugar and ethanol production flexibility, and vice-versa.3.2. Food/Agricultural Commodities 3.2.1. Planted Area 13

  16. 16. 4. Adoption of New Accounting Procedures and Economic and Financial Performance (2010 x 2009) 4.1. Adoption of new accounting procedures issued by the Accounting Statement Committee (CPC) and international accounting practices, according to the International Financial Reporting Standards As authorized by Securities Commission in article 1 of CVM Decision 603, Brasil has chosen to present its Quarterly Information Forms – ITR during 2010 according to accounting standards effective up to December 31, 2009. According to referred decision, in 2010 year statements, the Company adopted all statements issued by the CPC applicable to its operations, which consistent with international accounting practices – IFRS. In this manner, certain balances relative to 2009 year, previously published, were adjusted in order to reflect alterations resulting from new statements and allow comparability between presented periods. The adjustments resulting from adopting these statements, which affected Company results in years that ended on December 31, 2010 and December 31, 2009, were as follows: 16
  17. 17. 4.2. Economic and Financial Performance 4.2.1. Gross Revenue In 4Q10, Gross Revenue was R$ Gross Revenue 60.9 million, being that R$ 41.8 million (68.6% of this total) originated from 21.5 thousand m3 biodiesel sale. This amount includes soybean meal sale revenue resulting from outsourced grain crushing operations, obtaining thereby an R$ 18,9 million revenue (31.0% of total). In 2010, Gross Revenue reached R$ 465.0 million, a 14.8 % higher amount than obtained in 2009. Of the total, R$ 428.1 million came from the sale of 172.2 thousand m3 biodiesel. It is relevant to highlight the revenue coming from soybean meal sale, which accounted for 7.6% of the revenue for the year. Soybean meal sale started in 2010 by purchasing soybean grains and from outsourced crushing operations in Rio Grande do Sul. 4.2.2. Deductions In the year, deduction total reached R$ 70.2 million, against R$ 55.6 million amount in the previous year. When we compare this amount in relation to net revenue, it is observed that this percentage passed from 15.9% in 2009 to 17.8% in 2010. R$ 51.4 million in ICMS were recorded, being that out of this total R$ 19,5 million state tax incentive credits were deducted. R$ 27.1 million of COFINS and R$ 5.9 million of PIS also were recorded, already deducted from the benefit resulting from PIS and COFINS aliquot reduction levied on biodiesel resulting from using raw material originating from family farming . 17
  18. 18. 4.2.3. Net Revenue4Q10 Net Revenue was R$ 46.1million, 51,0% less than the R$ 94.2million of 3Q10, as a consequence oflow volume sold by the Company atthe 19th ANP Auction, which presenteda high discount, as already informed inthis report.Notwithstanding the low performanceobserved in 4Q10, in 2010, net revenue presented a 13.01% growth whencompared to 2009, passing from R$ 349.3 million in 2009 to R$ 394.8 million in2010.4.2.4. Cost of Goods Sold (COGS)The company’s costs structure did not change significantly. Vegetal oil andmethanol represented 89.5% of the cost of products sold regarding biodiesel.Biodiesel CPS evolution as percentage of net income was of: 82.2% in 2009 to78.8% in 2010.The Company has a Risk Management Policy providing for the fixation of oilprices and physical volumes with delivery schedule for suppliers, right after thebiodiesel auction. This has been the strategy to fix the prices for the rawmaterial and protect from the risk of soy bean price volatility in theinternational market.In respect to the company’s total cost, in 2010 the soybean meal startedparticipating, as result from the outsourced operations of the bean crushing.The year featured the commercialization of 71,461 tons of bran, and the cost ofsuch sales represented 8.2% of the company’s total cost, as shown in the chartbelow. 18
  19. 19. 4.2.5. Operating ExpensesGeneral and AdministrativeIn the year of 2010, the general and administrative expenses reached R$ 45.5million, representing 11.52% of net operating revenue. Such expenses regard tothe general administration, including salaries and benefits paid to ouremployees, expenses with outsourced services, travels, telecommunications,leases, and provisions for contingencies, among others.We had the presence of several non-recurring expenses, such as: (i) theCompany’s administrative head office moving to São Paulo; (ii) increase in thedemand of audit and consulting services contracting; (iii) increase in theexpenses with personnel due to the dismissal of employees from Rio de Janeiroand Fortaleza and new hires in São Paulo; and (iv) Freight over Sales expenses,due to the deliveries resulting from the stocks replacement auction, held in theCIF modality. These events totaled approximately R$ 9.3 million. Forcomparison, if we consider the deduction of these amounts of general andadministrative expenses in 2010 will have a value of $ 36.2 million, equivalentto 9.17% of net operating revenues, comparable to R$ 34.9 million in 2009which represented 9.98% of net operating revenue.Other operating revenues/expensesRegard to the expenses incurred, provisions made or income gained during theyear, in activities not directly related to the Company’s operating activity. 19
  20. 20. In 2010, we presented in the account of other operating revenues (expenses),an expense of R$ 16.2 million, related primarily to Petrobras Agreement.In 2009, this value was negative at R$ 5.9 million, mainly influenced by non-recurring revenue from amortization of the rescinded of the contract of Enguiaand non-recurring expense strategic redirection.4.2.6. Financial IncomeIn the 4Q10, we had a negative NetFinancial Income of R$ 4.6 million, againsta positive financial income of R$ 1.1million registered in the previous quarter.In the 4Q10, we have had a FinancialIncome of R$ 3.6 million (compensationfrom financial investments) against aFinancial Expense of R$ 1.7 million(interests over loans). Moreover, thevalue of the financial expense was affectedby the accounting of the extraordinary value resulting from the updating ofcustomers advance payments in the amount of R$ 6.4 million.In the year of 2010, we presented a negative net financial income of R$ 2.2million. As compensation to our financial investments, we have had a financialincome of R$ 14.0 and an expense of R$ 9.9 million resulting from the moneyadjustment of our debts. However, due to the accounting of the extraordinaryamount abovementioned, we have had a negative impact of R$ 6.4 million,leaving the financial income with debt balance. Not considering this event, thenet financial income would be positive in R$ 4.1 million. 3Q10 4Q10 2009 2010 2010 (*)Financial Result 1,171 (4,572) (31,707) (2,240) 4,155 Financial Income 4,213 3,557 9,149 13,992 13,992 Financial Expense (3,042) (8,129) (40,856) (16,232) (9,837)4.2.7. DebtOn December 31, 2010, Brasil Ecodiesel’s and its controlled company Maeda’sdebt represented the amount of R$ 231.5 million, divided in R$ 125.9 in theshort term and R$ 105.6 in the long term. 20
  21. 21. The short term debt still did not accounted the effects of the reorganization of Maeda’s debt with the banks ING, BNB and Banco do Brasil, already commercially agreed but still in the formalization phase. In the end of that process, the debt will be more concentrated in the long term. Maeda’s current debt will be amortized with the resources from the sale of assets already made in 2010 in the amount of R$ 77,8 million, wich will reduce the net debt of the company.
