The settlement date of the Offer will occur promptly after the acceptance by Raizen Fuels for purchase of the Notes validly tendered at or prior to the Expiration Date or at or prior to the Guaranteed Delivery Date, for Notes tendered using the Guaranteed Delivery Procedures, and is expected to be no later than three business days following the Expiration Date, on March 6, 2024 (the " Settlement Date "), subject to extension by Raizen Fuels in its sole discretion.

In addition to the Consideration, holders whose Notes are tendered and accepted for purchase in the Offer, including Notes tendered pursuant to the Guaranteed Delivery Procedures, will be paid accrued and unpaid interest on the Notes from, and including, the last interest payment date to, but excluding, the Settlement Date (" Accrued Interest "), payable on the Settlement Date.
