  1. 1. Confidential 1 Confidential AMERICAS IRON ORE CONFERENCE Manabi Presentation Belo Horizonte, 6 – 8 November 2012
  2. 2. Confidential 2 Disclaimers This presentation and its contents are confidential and proprietary of Manabi S.A. and its Subsidiaries (“Manabi”). Upon acceptance of this presentation, each recipient (as well as its agents, representatives, advisors, directors or employees, as the case may be) agrees that it will not, and shall not permit any third party to copy, reproduce or distribute to others the content of this presentation, in whole or in part, at any time without the prior written consent of Manabi. Except as otherwise indicated herein, this presentation provides for information and opinions as of the date hereof, which are subject to change without notice. This presentation does not purport to be all inclusive or to contain all information that you may desire in evaluating the project (the “Project”). Each recipient must conduct and rely on its own evaluation, including of the associated risks, in making an investment decision. Manabi strongly recommends to all recipients of this presentation to obtain appropriate independent legal, tax, financial and other professional advice. Although certain information and opinions expressed in this presentation were obtained by Manabi from sources believed to be reliable and in good faith, neither representation nor warranty, express or implied, is made as to its accuracy or completeness. Nothing contained herein is, or should be relied on as, a promise or representation as to future performance of the Project. Certain information and conclusions set forth herein are based on projections. These projections were prepared for the limited purpose of analyzing the potential risks and benefits of an investment in the Project by illustrating under certain limited assumptions projected capital and operating expenditures, installed production capacity and expected production. In addition, because of the subjective judgments and inherent uncertainties of projections and because the projections are based on a number of assumptions, which are subject to significant uncertainties and contingencies that are beyond Manabí's control, there can be no assurance that the projections or conclusions derived therefrom will be realized. Under no circumstances should the projections set forth herein be regarded as a representation, warranty or prediction that Manabi will achieve or is likely to achieve any particular future result. There can be no assurance that Manabí's future results or projections will not vary significantly from those set forth herein. In addition, certain of the information and conclusions set forth herein are based on projections. These projections were prepared for the limited purpose of analyzing the potential risks and benefits of an investment in the securities by illustrating, based on a number of assumptions, the prospective and contingent resources of Manabi. Although Manabi believes the assumptions underlying such projections are reasonable, the reasonableness of these assumptions has not been independently passed upon. Manabí's ability to achieve the projected results is dependent upon, among other factors, the success of its exploration efforts, its ability to obtain necessary governmental authorizations and licenses in order to begin operations, its estimates of resources, its budget for developing its exploration and production assets and operating those assets, and its forecasts for production and the market for that production. This presentation contains forward-looking statements or statements about events and circumstances which have not yet occurred, which may be identified by such words as "may", "plans", "expects", "believes" and similar expressions, or by their context. These statements are made on the basis of current knowledge and, by their nature, involve numerous assumptions and uncertainties. Forward-looking statements may be influenced in particular by factors such as the ability to obtain all required regulatory approvals on a timely basis or at all, exploration for mineral resources and reserves, difficulty in converting geological resources into mineral reserves, and changes in economic, political and regulatory conditions. We caution that the foregoing list is not exhaustive. When relying on forward- looking statements to make decisions, investors should carefully consider these factors as well as other uncertainties and events. Various factors could cause Manabí's actual future results, performance or events to differ materially from those described in this presentation. In no event shall Manabi or the members of its board, directors, assigns or employees be liable to any third party (including investors) for investment decisions or acts or business carried out based on the information and statements that appear in this presentation, or for indirect damage, loss of profit or related issues. Neither this presentation nor anything contained herein shall form the basis of any contract or commitment whatsoever. This presentation was prepared for information purposes only and it should not be construed neither an offer to sell (which can only be made pursuant to definitive offering documents) nor a solicitation of an offer to buy any securities in the United States, Brazil or any other jurisdiction. Securities of Manabi, IronCo. LLC and/or any affiliated entity may only be offered or sold in the United States, Brazil or any other jurisdiction pursuant to their registration or an exemption from registration under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended, Instrução CVM 400/03, as amended, or other equivalent rules and regulations of any other jurisdictions.
