Barretos, November 30, 2009 - Minerva S.A. (BOVESPA: BEEF3; Bloomberg: BEEF3.BZ; Reuters: BEEF3.SA), one of the market leaders in Brazil in the production and sale of fresh beef, leather and live cattle exports, announces that its Executive Board has approved the inauguration of a new distribution center (DC) in Bauru, São Paulo. We currently operate six DCs in the states of Espírito Santo, Goiás, Santa Catarina and São Paulo. The new DC, which is scheduled to start operations in December 2009, has the following objectives: (1) intensifying our operations in the Bauru region; (2) expanding our distribution in the northern of Paraná state; (3) strengthening our strategy to direct sales to small and midsized retailers and food service chains; and (4) improving our distribution channels and services. We expect the new distribution center to mature within a period of six months, with no need for additional investments.
