Pursuant to the provisions of article 157, paragraph 4, of Law nº 6,404/76 and of CVM Instruction nº 358/2002, and in accordance with the company’s Notice to the Market of September 16th and the Material Information release published on September 22nd, ARACRUZ CELULOSE S.A. ("ARACRUZ" or the “company”) and VOTORANTIM CELULOSE E PAPEL S.A. (“VCP”), announce that, on this date, the management of ARACRUZ and representatives of Empresas CMPC S.A. (“CMPC”), based in Santiago, Chile, signed a sales contract (the “Contract”) for the transfer of ownership of the assets represented by the industrial installations, lands and forests collectively known as the Guaíba Unit, located in the municipality of Guaíba, in the state of Rio Grande do Sul. In general terms, these comprise: (i) a pulp Mill with an annual production capacity of approximately 450,000 tons; (ii) a paper plant, with an annual production capacity of around 60,000 tons; (iii) land totalling an area of approximately 212,000 hectares (of which 32,000 hectares are leased, under partnerships); as well as (iv) licenses and authorizations for a project to expand the pulp mill, raising its production capacity to around 1.75 million tons a year.

The sale price that has been agreed for the Guaíba Unit is US$ 1,430 million and the payments are to be made in two installments, the first of which, for the sum of US$ 1 (one) billion, is to be made upon the completion of the deal, set for December 15, 2009; and the second, for the sum of US$ 430 million, to be made 45 (forty-five) days after the payment of the first, with a interest rate of 7.5% p.a..

Despite selling the Guaíba Unit, the company has retained assets worth about US$ 180 million, represented by industrial equipment that had been purchased for the expansion of that unit and shall now be used in a future expansion project that the company may undertake. The timing and sequence of any future expansion projects will be subject to market conditions and the company’s commitment to the exercising of discipline in the expansion of the pulp and paper industry worldwide.

Simultaneously, the company is restructuring its debt liabilities, in order to align the maturity profile with its future cash generation. The combination of these two events will reposition the company’s capital structure and debt profile, while creating conditions for the resumption of growth through high yield projects and the recovery of its investment grade rating.
