Our disclosure and analysis in this Current Report on Form 8-K contains some forward-looking statements.

Although we believe that these statements are based upon reasonable assumptions, they are subject to several risks and uncertainties.

Investors are cautioned that our forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and the actual results or developments may differ materially from the expectations expressed in the forward-looking statements.

As for the forward-looking statements that relate to future financial results and other projections, actual results will be different due to the inherent uncertainty of estimates, forecasts and projections and may be better or worse than projected. Given these uncertainties, you should not place any reliance on these forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements also represent our estimates and assumptions only as of the date that they were made. We expressly disclaim a duty to provide updates to these forward-looking statements, and the estimates and assumptions associated with them, after the date of this filing to reflect events or changes in circumstances or changes in expectations or the occurrence of anticipated events.

Brazil Minerals, Inc. (the "Company") filed a Certificate of Change to its Certificate of Incorporation (the "Certificate of Change") to effect a reverse stock split (the "Reverse Stock Split") of the Company's outstanding common stock (the "Common Stock"), at an exchange ratio of 1-for-500. The Reverse Stock Split became effective at 12:01 AM PST on January 27, 2017.  The Reverse Stock Split and the Certificate of Change were approved by the Board of Directors of the Company.  A copy of the Certificate of Change and a Certificate of Correction thereto is attached hereto as Exhibit 3.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

The Company's common stock began trading on a Reverse Stock Split-adjusted basis on January 27, 2017.   The new CUSIP number for the Company's common stock following the Reverse Stock Split is 105861207.
