For the purposes of CVM Instruction 358, CCR S.A. (“CCR”) (BM&FBovespa:CCRO3; Bloomberg:CCRO3BZ; Reuters:CCRO3.SA) announces to shareholders and the general market that, on the date hereof, the Special Bidding Process Commission of the bidding process that is the subject matter of Concession Bid Notice No. CO-44/2011 (“BIDDING PROCESS”), which is conducted by the Municipal Government of Rio de Janeiro, in the State of Rio de Janeiro, through the Municipal Construction Secretariat (SMO), announced the results of the bidding process.
The purpose of the BIDDING PROCESS is to select the most advantageous proposal for the concession contract for the installation, operation, maintenance, monitoring and conservation of and the execution of improvements on the TransOlympic Link (“CONCESSION” / “TRANSOLYMPIC”).
The Commission declared the Rio Olímpico Consortium (“Consortium”), which is formed by CCR (33.33%), Investimentos e Participações em Infraestrutura S.A. – Invepar (33.34%) and Odebrecht TransPort Participações S.A. (33.33%), the winners of the BIDDING PROCESS, making the results public after disclosing the minutes of the session in which the envelopes containing the bid proposals were opened.
The CONSORTIUM was awarded the contract by offering the highest price for the acquisition of the CONCESSION, which consisted of fifty-seven million, nine hundred and seventy thousand Brazilian reais (R$ 57,970,000.00). The consortium now awaits the formalization of the CONCESSION.
The construction of the TRANSOLYMPIC is part of the package of investments for the 2016 Olympic Games to be held in the city of Rio de Janeiro. The CONCESSION will have a duration of thirty-five (35) years and the expressway will be thirteen (13) kilometers in length and connect the district of Deodoro à Barra da Tijuca with the city of Rio de Janeiro. The expressway will begin on Avenida Brasil, between Avenida da Equitação and Estrada do Engenho Novo in the district of Magalhães Bastos, and continue until Estrada dos Bandeirantes, shortly after the junction with Avenida Salvador Allende in the district of Jacarepaguá.
By participating in this project, CCR continues to demonstrate its interest in the commercial exploration of opportunities in the State of Rio de Janeiro as well as in promoting the state’s sustainable development through improvements in its transportation infrastructure. CCR has operated in the state since 1995, through its concessionaires CCR Nova Dutra, CCR Ponte and CCR Via Lagos, and earlier this month it executed the Agreement for Purchase and Sale and Other Covenants for the acquisition of eighty percent (80%) of the shares representing Barcas S.A. – Transports Maritimes, as per the Material Fact disclosed on April 4, 2012.
Being awarded the contract for the TRANSOLYMPIC CONCESSION represents the realization of yet another important phase in the strategic planning of the CCR Group, which seeks to obtain high-quality growth, maximize shareholder value and contribute to Brazil’s social and economic development.
