Embraer and the Brazilian Air Force engaged in negotiations on this subject, conducting a new negotiation process, which resulted, among other matters, in the execution of amendments to the Contracts in order to (i) reduce from 22 to 19 the total number of KC-390 Millennium aircraft to be delivered under the terms of the Contracts, definitively ending the possibility of unilateral reductions pursuant to the law; (ii) redefine and reschedule the delivery schedule, in order to distribute over time the effect of the reduction in the number of aircraft; and (iii) adjust contractual clauses in order to maintain the respective economic and financial balance.

The execution of the amendments successfully concludes the negotiations between the parties regarding the Contracts. The amendments to the Contracts preserve the Company's cash flow, ensure the economic and financial viability of the KC-390 Millennium project and do not change and do not compromise the Company's guidance for 2022.

Embraer reinforces its commitment to the KC-390/C-390 Millennium project, next-generation multi-mission aircraft, as well as its belief in the export potential of this product, which brings unique innovations in its category, and which has already been selected by three European nations.

Finally, Embraer reiterates its role as a strategic partner of the Brazilian Air Force in the development and implementation technological solutions and products of high added value, a partnership established for over 50 years.
