EBITDA generation in the period was BRL 47.4 million lower than first quarter of 2014, offset by lower income tax and social contribution and better working capital management, especially due to the reduction in the receivable accounts, mainly explained by high position in fourth quarter 2014 and weak sales in first quarter 2015. The decrease in met income is mainly explained by decrease in operating income as detailed in the previous section; higher net financial income due to higher volume of interest income from investments, result of the higher cash level and increased DI/Selic interest rate; lower effective income tax rate that observed in first quarter 2014, mainly caused by the New "Agreement of Special Regime" agreed with Goiás state government in August 2014.
