We request clarification, until 09/21/2021, on the news published by Valor Econômico newspaper, on 09/20/2021, under the title "Novonor, ex-Odebrecht, presents new Braskem sales model", with your confirmation or not, as well as other information considered relevant."

"We refer to your e-mail, through which you request clarification on the news published in the newspaper Valor Econômico under the title: "Novonor, ex-Odebrecht, presents a new Braskem sales model ".
As you are aware, Novonor S.A. has started a process to sell its stake in Braskem S.A., in compliance with commitments assumed with its creditors, having even hired a financial advisor to conduct the studies, analyzes and recommendations for this purpose. These facts were previously communicated to you in compliance with the relevant legal provisions.
In the context of this process, Novonor S.A. is evaluating all possible alternatives for the sale of its participation in Braskem S.A. and compliance with the commitment assumed with its creditors, which includes, among all other existing alternatives, the sale of its participation through of the capital market. However, it should be noted that, at this time, there is no decision as to which alternative will be pursued by the Group.
With regard to the meeting with creditors mentioned in the subject in question, this meeting is part of the communication process that we regularly maintain with our creditors, a commitment that was also assumed by the Group in its restructuring and which has been strictly adhered to."
