5. What is Interest on own Capital (IOC)?

The IOC (Interest on Own Capital) is another tool for returning cash to shareholders, calculated applying the TJLP - Taxa de Juros de Longos Prazos (which is the official interest rate used as reference in long-term loans) over the company’s Shareholder’s Equity and limited to half of the Company´s net income. The IOC is considered as a deductible expense for tax and social contribution purposes, reducing the amount of both taxes.

The shareholders (including holders of ADSs) pay Brazilian withholding tax on the amounts received as interest on own capital, whereas no such payment is required in connection with dividends received. However, the increase in the amount distributed related to the tax benefit more than offsets the amount paid by the shareholder for withholding tax. Withholding tax is usually paid by Brazilian companies on behalf of their shareholders.

2. Why Suzano Pulp and Paper uses EBITDA as index?

EBITDA consists of net income before income tax and social contribution, financial income (expenses) and expenses from depreciation and amortization. EBITDA is not a measure recognized under Brazilian GAAP, IFRS or U.S. GAAP and should not be considered individually as an alternative to net income, as an operating performance measure or as an alternative to cash flow or as a measure of liquidity. Other companies may calculate their EBITDA differently than we do. EBITDA presents limitations that impair its use as a measure of profitability since it does not take into consideration certain costs and expenses that result from our business that could have a significant effect on our net income, such as financial expenses, taxes, depreciation, capital expenses and other related charges. We use EBITDA as an additional measure to monitor our operating performance.
