On May 5, 2014, Banco BTG Pactual S.A., in its role as Stabilizing Agent for the Public Offering, partially exercised, pursuant to article 24 of CVM Instruction No. 400, its option to place an additional 120,265,046 common shares and 240,530,092 preferred shares issued by Oi (the "Option Shares"), which represents an increase of 6.27% in the total number of shares distributed by Oi in the Public Offering.
