Rio de Janeiro, February 24, 2016 – Vale S.A. (Vale) informs that Chairman of the Board Mr. Dan Antonio Marinho Conrado will be replaced by Mr. Gueitiro Matsuo Genso as of February 24, 2016.

Mr. Conrado has made relevant contributions to Vale in his position as Chairman of the Board since October 2012. Upon retiring from the position of Chairman, Mr. Conrado will continue to act as a member of Vale’s Board.
