Rio de Janeiro, July 28th, 2022 - Vale S.A. ("Vale" or "Company") informs that its Board of Directors approved the distribution to shareholders in the gross amount of R$ 3.572056566 per share, of which R$ 2.032680337 per share as dividends and R$ 1.539376229 per share as interest on equity. The distribution is aligned with Vale's Shareholder Dividend Policy and refers to the first half of 2022, calculated based on the balance sheet dated June 30, 2022. Merely as a reference, the total distribution would be equivalent to a gross amount of approximately US$ 0.66 per share.

The remuneration payment will take place on September 1st, 2022, and the shareholders will be entitled to the remuneration as follows:

  1. The record date for holders of Vale's shares traded on B3 will be on August 11th, 2022, and for holders of American Depositary Receipts ("ADRs") traded on the New York Stock Exchange ("NYSE") will be on August 15th, 2022.

  4. According to the Brazilian law, the distribution of interest on capital is subject to the deduction of withholding income tax, except for the exempt beneficiaries that prove compliance with the legal conditions for the exemption. Any change in the shareholder register regarding tax residence and profile shall be completed by August 8th, 2022, to ensure the accurate withholding tax related to the interest on capital announced today.

The dividends per share may vary slightly until the record date due to the ongoing share buyback program, which impacts the number of outstanding shares. In this case, the Company will publish a new Notice to Shareholders informing the final amount per share.
