Comments from the CEO
Renato Alves Vale: "It is with great satisfaction that we are reporting the results obtained by CCR in 3Q12 to our shareholders, the market, employees, users and our various interested audience.
"In line with the trend of industrial production that began in July, rising 1.5% for the period comprising July to August 2012, our traffic registered 3% increase compared to 3Q11, demonstrating strong recovery that, associated with the continuous decline in interest rates contributed to improving our financial results and, consequently, to the 18.9% growth in our net income, reaching R$ 316.8 million during this quarter.
"Supported by the strong performance and our solid financial position, we are continuing to follow our commitment to distribute dividends to shareholders and we were able to initiate a payout of R$ 0.54 per share on October 31, 2012 so that, added to the dividends paid in April this year, CCR reached more than R$ 1 billion distributed to shareholders in 2012.
"It is important to highlight that 3Q12 was notable for the conclusion of the acquisition process initiated in April 2012 of two new businesses: the Airport of San Jose, in Costa Rica, and the airport of Curacao, in the Dutch Antilles, in continuity with our qualified growth strategy, always based on capital discipline.
"We continue to be encouraged by the excellent prospects for the future, due to the promising economic scenario in Brazil and the expectation of various opportunities for growth, especially due to the World Cup soccer championships (2014) and the Olympic Games (2016) in Rio de Janeiro, always prioritizing value generation to our shareholders and contributing to the promotion of sustainable development through the improvement in infrastructure."
