Vale adopts a new corporate name: Vale S.A.

Tuesday, May 26th, 2009

Vale announces that the proposal for the change of its legal name to Vale S.A. from Companhia Vale do Rio Doce was approved 22 May in the Extraordinary Shareholders’ Meeting.
The change of Vale’s legal name is another milestone in our brand unification process. In November 2007, we launched our new global identity, using the commercial name “Vale” in all countries where we operate, and adopted a new global visual identity. The new name and logo communicate the Company’s evolution, diversification and growth in recent years, during which Vale has been transformed into a global mining company with a diversified portfolio of products that are ubiquitous in and essential to people’s lives.
As a result of the legal name change, the CUSIP numbers for Vale’s American Depositary Shares (“ADSs”) have changed. The new CUSIP numbers are 91912E 105 for ADSs relating to the common shares and 91912E 204 for ADSs relating to the preferred shares.
We have recently changed our ticker symbols under which the ADSs trade in NYSE to VALE and VALE.P to reflect the new brand and we continue the process of changing the names and brands of our commercial and exploration offices and some subsidiaries.
With our new name, Vale S.A., we continue to reinforce our commitment to generating value, while maintaining our focus on sustainability and respect for life.
