Braskem S.A. ("Braskem" or "Company"), in compliance with CVM Instruction 358/02, informs the general market and its shareholders that, due to the logistics constraints arising from the nationwide truckers' strike, over the past few days the Company has been gradually reducing the capacity utilization rate of its petrochemical complexes in the country, which currently are operating at approximately 50% of their nominal capacity in Brazil.

Once the aforementioned logistics constraints are normalized, the Company will gradually ramp up its operations.

Braskem will keep the market informed of any other relevant information.
