Our relationship with the investors and the market is based on transparence. We met all the legal and regulatory requirements applying to the publicly held companies with securities traded in Brazil and abroad.

The structure of Ambev’s Governance is integrated by the Board of Directors, the Executive Board of Officers and the Audit Committee. The Board of Directors counts on the support from the Operations, Finance and Remuneration Committee and the Related Parties and Antitrust Conducts Committee.

Our Reference Form, filed with the CVM under Brazilian Corporate Law, contains complementary information regarding Management, such as qualification and remuneration.

Board of Directors

The Board of Directors oversees Ambev’s executive officers. The Board of Directors is currently comprised of eleven effective members and two alternate member, and provides the overall strategic direction of Ambev. Directors are elected at general shareholders’ meetings for a three-year term, re-election being permitted. Day-to-day management is delegated to the executive officers of Ambev, of which there are currently eleven. The Board of Directors appoints executive officers for a three-year term, re-election being permitted.

The Board members appoint the executive officers and ensure that the company’s values, ethics and culture are practiced and spread among the employees. They use their extensive knowledge of the business to ensure that Ambev reaches its long-term goals and maintains its short-term competitiveness. Moreover, the Board of Directors ensures that Ambev pursues its short-term business goals without compromising our long-term growth, while at the same time ensuring that Ambev’s corporate values are practiced.

Aiming at ensuring a greater independence and autonomy among the main Governance bodies, no director exercises an executive office in the Company, despite all of them being shareholders. The Company’s Co-Chairmen of the Board of Directors and the Chief Executive Officer are separate positions held by different people.

The Board of Directors evaluates constantly their performance and internal procedures. The Board of Directors and Executive Officers are evaluated annually based on objective results targets associated to the Company’s performance, and this evaluation is used to verify their right to variable compensation.

Audit Committee

The responsibilities of the ‘Conselho Fiscal’ include supervision of Management, performing analyses and rendering opinions regarding Ambev’s financial statements and performing other duties in accordance with Brazilian Corporate Law and our By-Laws. None of the members of the ‘Conselho Fiscal’ is also a member of the Board of Directors or of any Committee thereof. The members are elected in the General Shareholders’ Meeting and their term of office will be of one year, reelection being permitted. One ‘Conselho Fiscal’ effective member and one alternate are elected by minority shareholders under the terms of the law.

In addition, we have relied on the exemption provided for under Rule 10A-3(c)(3) of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, which enables us to have the ‘Conselho Fiscal’ perform the duties of an audit committee for the purposes of such Act, to the extent permitted by Brazilian law. We do not believe that reliance on this exemption would materially adversely affect the ability of our ‘Conselho Fiscal’ to act independently and to satisfy the other requirements of such Act.
