Minerva is Included in the Bovespa‘s SMLL Index

Barretos, September 2, 2008 - Minerva S.A. (BOVESPA: BEEF3; Bloomberg: BEEF3.BZ; Reuters: BEEF3.SA), one of the market leaders in Brazil in the production and sale of beef products, leather and live cattle, hereby informs its shareholders and the market in general of its inclusion in the SMLL (Small Cap Index) of the São Paulo Stock Exchange (Bovespa).

To be included in the index, Minerva’s shares met the following conditions in the twelve months prior to the formation of the portfolio: (i) to be included in the group of stocks whose combined tradability indexes represent 98% of the total value of all the individual tradability indexes; and (ii) to have participated in 100% of trading sessions in the period.
