Cyrela intends to declare and pay dividends and/or interest attributable to stockholders’ equity, in each fiscal year, in amounts equivalent to approximately 25.0% of its adjusted net income, in accordance with the Brazilian Corporate law.
The declaration of annual dividends, including dividends in excess of the minimum mandatory dividend, requires approval by a majority vote of the holders of Company’s common shares and will depend on many factors. These factors include their results of operations, financial condition, cash requirements, future prospects and other factors deemed relevant by their board of directors and shareholders. Within the context of their tax planning, they may in the future determine that it is to their benefit to distribute interest attributable to stockholders’ equity.
Pursuant to rules of the Novo Mercado, the Company’s capital stock has to be represented exclusively by common shares and, therefore, they are not allowed to issue preferred shares. On May 25, 2005, their shareholders’ meeting approved, among other items: (i) the conversion of all of their preferred shares into common shares, on a 1:1 basis; and (ii) the amendment of Cyrela’s by-laws in order to comply with all the requirements of the Novo Mercado. On July 29, 2005, the Company entered into an agreement with BOVESPA providing for the listing of their common shares on the Novo Mercado.
The table below shows the dividend and interest on shareholders’ equity distributed to Cyrela shareholders for the periods indicated.
