In its current non-binding form, the funding structure encompasses approximately USD 900 million in contributions from the parties, including approximately USD 500 million through a trust scheme from VCL, the renewal of an existing EUR 200 million facility from the French State and US$ 200 million sourced by NCZ through a debt facility, offtake financing and third party VNC level strategic investment.

With this announcement, the potential contribution to be made by VCL will be reserved in Vale's consolidated financial statements on approximately USD 500 million when, subject to the prior consultation of the VNC works council, the negotiation is completed and final transaction documentation is signed.

Vale reaffirms its commitment with its shareholders to transform the Base Metals business, simplifying operations flowsheet going forward and enabling the continuous focus on core assets, while also honoring its new pact with society, contributing to the maintenance of a sustainable environment for safe operations continuity.
