MMX finalizes supplementary financing contract for Sudeste Superport
 
MMX Mineração e Metálicos S.A. (“MMX”), the only Brazilian iron ore mining company with integrated logistics listed on the Novo Mercado segment of BM&FBovespa, in compliance with article 157 of law No. 6,404/76 and Instruction No. 358/02 of the Brazilian Securities Commission ("CVM"), hereby informs its shareholders and the market in general that MMX has concluded with the National Social and Economic Development Bank (BNDES) the final stage of the contracting process of long term supplementary financing for the Sudeste Superport.
 
The total amount of this supplementary financing, under FINEM structure, is approximately R$ 935 million, with a final maturity date of 10 years, as from January 2013, which already considers the 12-month grace period for payment of interest and principal. After the grace period, interest payments and amortization of principal will be monthly. MMX estimates that the first drawdown will occur during the second quarter of 2013, after completing all the steps for formalization and perfection of guarantees. This disbursement will allow MMX to lengthen a significant portion of its short-term debt.
 
This contracting represents another important milestone in the Sudeste Superport project, for which start-up of operations is scheduled for December 2013. The start-up of operations at the Sudeste Superport is a priority focus of MMX’s board of officers. Long-term access to a proper infrastructure for export will allow MMX to be an efficient and competitive player in the seaborne iron ore market, with better margins and a more robust capital structure.
