The Total Consideration for Notes validly tendered prior to or at the Early Tender Date (as defined below) and accepted for purchase is inclusive of the Early Tender Payment (as defined below) and calculated using the applicable Fixed Spread for the applicable series of Notes to the yield of the Reference U.S. Treasury Security for that series as of 2:00 p.m., New York City time, on September 26, 2019. All holders of Notes accepted for purchase will also receive accrued and unpaid interest on Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase from and including the applicable last interest payment date up to, but not including, the applicable settlement date.

The Offers are made upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the offer to purchase dated September 12, 2019 (the "Offer to Purchase").

Holders that validly tendered and did not validly withdraw Notes in the Offers at or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on September 25, 2019 (the "Early Tender Date"), and whose Notes have been accepted for purchase will be entitled to receive the total consideration as set forth in the table above per US$1,000 principal amount of Notes tendered and accepted for purchase (the "Total Consideration"), which includes an early tender payment of $50.00 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes accepted for purchase (the "Early Tender Payment"). In addition, holders whose Notes are accepted for purchase pursuant to the Offers will also receive accrued and unpaid interest ("Accrued Interest") on their accepted Notes from the last interest payment date to, but not including, the Early Settlement Date (as defined below). 

The applicable Total Consideration payable per US$1,000 principal amount of Notes tendered and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Offers was determined by the dealer managers in the manner described in the Offer to Purchase by reference to the applicable fixed spread for each series of Notes (as set forth in the table above) plus the applicable yield-to-maturity based on the bid-side price of the applicable Reference U.S. Treasury Security for that series of Notes (as set forth in the table above) as of 2:00 p.m., New York City time, on September 26, 2019. 

Payment of the applicable Total Consideration and Accrued Interest for the Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase is expected to be made, subject to the terms and conditions of the Offer to Purchase, on September 30, 2019 (the "Early Settlement Date"). The Offers will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on October 9, 2019 (the "Expiration Date").

As previously announced, because the aggregate principal amount of the Notes tendered pursuant to the Offers at the Early Tender Date reached the Maximum Principal Amount (as defined in the Offer to Purchase, as amended), no Notes tendered after the Early Tender Date will be accepted for purchase.  Any tendered Notes that are not accepted for purchase will be returned or credited without expense to the holder's account.

The Offerors retained Banco Bradesco BBI S.A., Itau BBA USA Securities, Inc., J.P. Morgan Securities LLC, Santander Investment Securities Inc. and Scotia Capital (USA) Inc. to serve as dealer managers and D.F. King & Co., Inc. ("D.F. King") to serve as tender and information agent for the Offers.  The Offer to Purchase and any related supplements are available at the D.F. King website at www.dfking.com/vale.  The full details of the Offers are included in the Offer to Purchase.  Holders of Notes are strongly encouraged to carefully read the Offer to Purchase, including materials incorporated by reference therein, because they will contain important information.  Requests for the Offer to Purchase and any related supplements may also be directed to D.F. King by telephone at +1 (212) 269-5550 or +1 (866) 406-2283 (US toll-free) or in writing at [email protected].

This news release is for informational purposes only and is neither an offer to purchase nor a solicitation of an offer to sell any securities.  The Offers were made only by, and pursuant to the terms of, the Offer to Purchase.  The Offers were not made in any jurisdiction in which the making or acceptance thereof would not be in compliance with the securities, blue sky or other laws of such jurisdiction.  In any jurisdiction where the laws required the Offers to be made by a licensed broker or dealer, the Offers were made by the dealer managers on behalf of the Offerors.  None of the Offerors, the tender and information agent, the dealer managers or the trustee with respect to the Notes, nor any of their affiliates, made any recommendation as to whether holders should tender or refrain from tendering all or any portion of their Notes in response to the Offers.  None of the Offerors, the tender and information agent, the dealer managers or the trustee with respect to the Notes, nor any of their affiliates, have authorized any person to give any information or to make any representation in connection with the Offers other than the information and representations contained in the Offer to Purchase.
