The percentage of debt denominated in foreign currency, considering the adjustment for derivatives, was 78.5%.

Net debt on December 31, 2017 stood at R$9.5 billion (US$2.9 billion), compared to R$9.3 billion (US$2.9 billion) on September 30, 2017. Foreign-denominated net debt was 100% dollarized on December 31, 2017.

Suzano contacts debt in foreign currency as natural hedge, since net operating cash generation is denominated in foreign currency. This structural exposure allows it to contract export financing in USD to match financing payments with receivable flows from sales.

Suzano has a conservative risk management policy that prioritizes cash generation. That means we seek to match the dollar inflows that we receive from our exports with debt payments contracted in U.S. dollar. The surplus dollars can be partially hedged (up to 75% of foreign exchange exposure over the next 18 months) using plain vanilla instruments matching with dollar inflows.

Suzano actively and expressly demonstrates its commitment to deleverage sustainably and to adopt adequate and efficient structures and costs for its market positioning and operating and managerial capacity.
