"More than a year after the beginning of the global financial crisis, we report the fourth consecutive quarter of results growth, according to the resilience of our businesses and the benefits from the investments we made. The consistency in our results growth and the gains from the increased operational and administrative scale, combined with our prudent financial management, allowed us to be assigned the investment grade rating by Standard & Poor's as well. Those elements reinforce our track record of sustained value growth, shown throughout these 10 years since our IPO." Pedro Wongtschowski - CEO
