("Marfrig"), Marfrig Holdings (Europe) B.V. (the "Issuer"), Banco Bradesco BBI S.A., BTG Pactual US Capital LLC, Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. and Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC (together, the "Dealer Managers") today announced the early tender results in connection with the Issuer's previously-announced (i) offer by the Issuer to purchase for cash (the "2021 Notes Tender Offer") up to U.S.$100.0 million in aggregate principal amount (the "2021 Notes Maximum Tender Amount") of the outstanding 11.250% Senior Notes due 2021 (the "2021 Notes") of the Issuer, and (ii) offer to purchase for cash (the "2017 Notes Tender Offer" and, together with the 2021 Notes Tender Offer, the "Tender Offers") the outstanding 9.875% Senior Notes due 2017 (the "2017 Notes" and, together with the 2021 Notes, the "Notes") of the Issuer in an aggregate principal amount such that the aggregate principal amount of the 2017 Notes accepted for purchase does not exceed (1) U.S.$130.0 million (which is hereby increased by the Issuer from U.S.$125.0 million, and is still subject to further increase) less (2) the aggregate principal amount of the 2021 Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase pursuant to the 2021 Notes Tender Offer (the "2017 Notes Maximum Tender Amount"). The Tender Offers are being made pursuant to the offer to purchase dated March 25, 2014 (the "Offer to Purchase") and the related letter of transmittal (the "Letter of Transmittal" and, together with the Offer to Purchase, the "Offer Documents"). The principal purpose of the Tender Offers is to reduce interest expense by retiring a portion of the outstanding debt using cash on hand. The early tender deadline for the Tender Offers was 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on April 7, 2014, (such date and time, the "Early Tender Time" and "Withdrawal Deadline"). As of the Early Tender Time, U.S.$57,135,000 in aggregate principal amount of the 2021 Notes, or approximately 14.28% of the 2021 Notes outstanding, and U.S.$165,590,000 in aggregate principal amount of the 2017 Notes, or approximately 27.60% of the 2017 Notes outstanding, had been validly tendered and not withdrawn pursuant to the Tender Offers.

The aggregate principal amount of 2017 Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn at or prior to the Early Tender Time was U.S.$165,590,000, which amount exceeds the 2017 Notes Maximum Tender Amount. Since the Issuer will accept for payment only such portion of the tendered 2017 Notes that does not result in it purchasing 2017 Notes with an aggregate principal amount above the 2017 Notes Maximum Tender Amount, the Issuer will purchase a portion of the validly tendered 2017 Notes in accordance with the terms of the 2017 Notes Tender Offer set forth in the Offer to Purchase, as modified by this Notice to the Market. Assuming that the conditions to the 2017 Notes Tender Offer are satisfied or waived, tendered 2017 Notes will be accepted for purchase on a pro rata basis as described in the Offer to Purchase, such that the aggregate principal amount of the 2017 Notes accepted in the 2017 Notes Tender Offer equals the 2017 Notes Maximum Tender Amount.
