This presentation was prepared by Ambev S.A. ("Ambev" or "Company") for the exclusive use in the earnings conference call of the third quarter of 2020 (3Q20). This presentation should not be considered as a complete document and should be analyzed together with the Company's quarterly information form (ITR) for the third quarter and the respective press release, both available on the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission - SEC and the CVM website. This presentation was prepared for informational purposes only and should not be considered as a solicitation or offer to buy or sell any securities of the Company, or as advice or recommendation of any nature. This presentation is not intended to be comprehensive, or to contain all the information that Ambev's shareholders might need. No decisions on investment, disposal or any other financial decisions or actions shall be made solely on the basis of the information contained herein.
This presentation segregates the impact of organic changes from those arising from changes in scope or currency translation. Scope changes represent the impact of acquisitions and divestitures, the start up or termination of activities or the transfer of activities between segments, curtailment gains and losses and year over year changes in accounting estimates and other assumptions that management does not consider as part of the underlying performance of the business. Organic growth and normalized numbers are presented applying constant year-over- year exchange rates to exclude the impact of the movement of foreign exchange rates.
Unless stated, percentage changes in this presentation are both organic and normalized in nature. Whenever used in this document, the term "normalized" refers to performance measures (EBITDA, EBIT, Profit, EPS) before exceptional items adjustments. Exceptional items are either income or expenses which do not occur regularly as part of the normal activities of the Company. They are presented separately because they are important for the understanding of the underlying sustainable performance of the Company due to their size or nature. Normalized measures are additional measures used by management and should not replace the measures determined in accordance with IFRS as indicators of the Company's performance. Comparisons, unless otherwise stated, refer to the third quarter of 2019 (3Q19). Values in this presentation may not add up due to rounding.
