Gafisa S.A.: Notice To Market

CONSTRUTORA TENDA S.A. (Bovespa, TEND3) (“Tenda”) and Gafisa S.A. (Bovespa: GFSA3; NYSE: GFA) (“Gafisa”), Brazil’s leading diversified national homebuilder, announced yesterday it has approved the issue of debentures, by Tenda (the “Company”), to fund the purchase of the outstanding 20% stake in Alphaville Urbanismo S.A. (“Alphaville”) which it did not already own.

The restricted public offering of 2,500 debentures with a principal amount of R$250 million was approved during Tenda’s Board of Directors meeting held on June 17, 2013.

The debentures will pay interest at a rate of 120% of CDI per annum, and will mature up to 24 months from issue date of June 19, 2013. The debentures will not be convertible into shares.

The Company will use the proceeds of the offering to complete the purchase of the outstanding 20% stake in Alphaville. The difference between the debenture issuance and the purchase price will be funded by own resources.

On June 7, 2013, Gafisa entered into an agreement with Alphaville’s founding partners to complete the purchase of the outstanding 20% stake in Alphaville for a total consideration of R$367 million. On the same date, Gafisa also signed an agreement to sell a majority stake in Alphaville, valuing Alphaville at an equity value of R$2.01 billion, to private equity firms Blackstone Real Estate Advisors L.P. and Pátria Investimentos Ltda. The issue of debentures will facilitate the conclusion of the sale transaction to Blackstone and Patria, which resources will be used to pay off the above mentioned issuance.

The definitive terms and conditions of the debentures are set forth in the Board of Directors minutes dated June 17, 2013, a copy of which was filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and posted on Gafisa’s website at
