POTENTIAL PUBLIC OFFERING
BTG Pactual and BTG Pactual Holding S.A. also announced their intention to make a secondary public offering for the distribution of BTG Pactual BPAC11 Units involving at least R$ 2 billion. The offer is expected to increase the Bank's free float ratio and the liquidity of Units traded at B3.
APPLICATION FOR LEVEL 2 MEMBERSHIP
The Bank has applied for membership to B3's Level 2 Corporate Governance special listing, in order to reassert its commitment to continuous improvement in corporate governance and its alignment with the market's best practices.
As per B3 guidelines, Level 2 membership is conditioned upon completing the public offering and maintaining in free circulation Units representing at least 21% of the social capital.
TRANSFER OF PARTICIPATION IN EFG
The Bank has the intention to transfer approximately 25% of its shares in EFG International AG, a Swiss financial institution, to BTG Pactual Holding. After the transfer, the Bank will still hold about 5% of EFG's social capital. The transaction is subject to the applicable regulatory approvals, which will take place in two stages.
