Ferbasa Bulletin

CIA DE FERRO LIGAS DA BAHIA - FERBASA (B3: FESA3 & FESA4) hereby, bring to the knowledge of the market in general the facts described below, clarifying what follows.

As previously informed, through CVM Circular No. 77/2017/CVM/SEP/GEA-2 and No. 281/2018/CVM/SEP/GEA-2, forwarded to the Company in February 2018 and September 2018 respectively, CVM stated that the monthly publication "Ferbasa Bulletin" should occur in the form of "Material Fact", and not by a simple "Notice to the Market", since, in the understanding of the Autarchy, the content published in the abovementioned Bulletin could generate possible influence in the investor’s decision-making process.

Given the orientation contained in the aforementioned CVM Circulars, Ferbasa evaluated internally the possibility of adjusting its monthly Bulletin publication to the form suggested by CVM, coming to the conclusion, however, that this measure does not reveal to be viable or interesting for the Company.

Because of this, and despite the relevant role played by the document in question, the Company hereby informs that, by decision of its Board of Executive Officers, the "Ferbasa Bulletin" will be interrupted, and its disclosure will be discontinued.
