<p>Our history began in 1983, when Pactual was founded in Rio de Janeiro as a brokerage.</p>

<p>Since its inception, Pactual has been run as a partnership, via an association established between its founding partners. In the ensuing 13 years, the company has grown considerably, becoming a fully-fledged bank with several offices throughout Brazil.</p>

<p>In May 2006, UBS AG purchased Pactual, creating &quot;UBS Pactual&quot;, the division of UBS in Latin American countries. Andr&eacute; Esteves became CEO of all of UBS&#39; Latin American operations.</p>

<p>In July 2008, Andr&eacute; Esteves and a group of partners left UBS Pactual to create a new company based on the same culture they had previously implemented at Banco Pactual. They were joined by Persio Arida and some former managing directors of UBS, and in October 2008 they created BTG, a global investment company with offices in S&atilde;o Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, London, New York and Hong Kong.</p>

<p>On April 19 2009, BTG acquired UBS Pactual. The transaction was finalized in September 2009, resulting in the creation of BTG Pactual. With the acquisition, the partners who left the Bank in 2008 were reunited with the partners who decided to stay on at the institution throughout the period following the bank&rsquo;s sale to UBS.</p>

<p>In December 2010, we issued US$1.8bn in capital to a consortium of renowned international investors and partners, representing 18.65% of BTG Pactual. The consortium provided us with a relevant group of investors, consolidating and expanding our global network.</p>

<p>In 2011, we purchased a 37.64% stake in Banco PanAmericano, comprising 51.00% of its voting shares and 21.97% of its non-voting shares.</p>

<p>In 2012, we acquired Celfin, the leading brokerage in Chile, which also operates in Peru and Colombia, and Bolsa y Renta, the largest brokerage (in equity volumes) in Colombia. Celfin has a broad range of products and services in the areas of Investment Banking, Products and Financial Services, Asset Management and Wealth Management.</p>

<p>We also held our IPO in 2012, raising R$3.65bn and making us one of the 20 largest listed companies on the BM&amp;FBovespa. This operation gives us more liquidity and reinforces our solid, fast-growing business platform.</p>

<p>In 2013, Banco BTG Pactual, via its subsidiary BTG Pactual Timberland Investments Group LLC, acquired timberland management contracts from Regions Timberland Group (&quot;RTG&quot;), a division of Regions Bank. This acquisition, which expands the Bank&rsquo;s timberland investment platform, makes BTG Pactual the largest independent timberland manager in Latin America and one of the largest worldwide, with committed and invested assets of around US$3bn and a portfolio of over 716,000 hectares, spread across the US, Latin America, Europe and South Africa.</p>

<p>A leading international law firm with 16 offices located in major financial centers around the world, Cleary Gottlieb Steen &amp; Hamilton LLP has helped shape the globalization of the legal profession for more than 65 years. Our worldwide practice has a proven track record for innovation and providing work of the highest quality to meet the needs of our domestic and international clients. In recognition of the firm&rsquo;s strong global practice, its effectiveness in dealing with the different business cultures of the countries in which it operates, and its success in multiple jurisdictions, Cleary Gottlieb received Chambers &amp; Partners&rsquo; inaugural International Law Firm of the Year award.&nbsp;<br />
<br />
Organized and operated as a single, integrated global partnership (rather than a U.S. firm with a network of overseas offices), Cleary Gottlieb employs&nbsp;approximately&nbsp;1,200 lawyers from more than 50 countries and diverse backgrounds who are admitted to practice in numerous jurisdictions around the world. Since the opening of our first European office in 1949, our legal staff has included European lawyers, most of whom have received a portion of their academic legal training in the United States and many of whom have worked as trainees in one of the firm&rsquo;s U.S. offices. The firm was among the first international law firms to hire and promote non-U.S. lawyers as equal partners around the world.<br />
<br />
Our clients include multinational corporations, international financial institutions, sovereign governments and their agencies, as well as domestic corporations and financial institutions in the countries where our offices are located. Although each of our 16 offices has its own practice, our&nbsp;&ldquo;one firm&rdquo; approach to the practice of law offers clients in any office the ability to access the full resources of all of our offices and lawyers worldwide to the extent their matters so require.</p>
