Pursuant to § 4 of Article 157 of Law 6,404, dated December 15th, 1976 and according to CVM (Brazilian Securities and Exchange Commission) 358 Regulation, dated January 3rd, 2002, and in addition to the Material Fact, dated January 6th, 2010, and to the Information to the Market, dated January 24th, 2011, both released by Banco do Brasil S.A., BB Seguridade Participações S.A. (“BB Seguridade”) hereby informs that:
1. BB Seguros Participações S.A. (“BB Seguros”), a wholly owned subsidiary of BB Seguridade, after a period of negotiation with Cia. de Seguros Aliança da Bahia (“Aliança da Bahia”) to acquire its stake in Brasilcap Capitalização S.A. (“Brasilcap”), decided:
(i) to maintain the current stake of 66.66% in the economics of Brasilcap, ending the negotiations with Aliança da Bahia; and
(ii) not establish a new partnership with Grupo Icatu, as described in the Material Fact dated January 6th, 2010, aiming to develop and distribute premium bonds in the Brazilian market.
2. As a result, Brasilcap's corporate structure remains unchanged and so does the way BB Seguros operates in the premium bonds segment.
