Year-over-year EBITDAR growth was driven by lower fixed and variable costs, tariff adjustments, and higher volume of return cargo.

Consolidated1 rail volumes increased 2.1% from 6,792 million RTK in 1Q06 to 6,932 million RTK in 1Q07. Volume growth was mainly driven by a 19.4% increase in industrial intermodal flows, due to market share gains in wood products and containers. Industrial products volumes increased 11.4% in the 1Q07 and agricultural commodities volumes decreased 1.5% when compared to 1Q06. The decrease in agricultural commodities resulted from lower volumes at Brasil Ferrovias as a result of the change from trucking to rail transportation in the connection between Campinas and Santos. The decision to offer rail from Mato Grosso to Santos - as opposed to a combination of rail from Mato Grosso to Campinas and truck from Campinas to Santos as Brasil Ferrovias did in 2006 – increased transit time compromising volume growth, but largely accounting for the margin improvements achieved in the period.
