THE BEGINNING OF A NEW KLABIN
TH

On March 4 , exactly within the deadline and budget established when the project was approved in 2013, the
Company produced the first pulp bales at the Puma Unit, in Ortigueira (PR). With the plant, Klabin begins a new
stage in its history, moving into new markets and becoming the only Brazilian company to simultaneously provide
bleached pulps from hardwood, softwood and fluff produced in a mill entirely designed for this purpose.
The Puma Unit reinforces Klabin’s commitment to the best global sustainability practices by combining high forestry
productivity, low operating costs, efficient logistics and cutting-edge environmental technology, ensuring highly
competitive end products. Coupled with its vocation for manufacturing paper and packaging, the new plant enables
a new growth cycle and represents Klabin’s ability to dream and achieve.
It is important to remember that the first sales from this new unit took place during the month of April and further
details will be included in a chapter about Pulp in the Quarterly Report for the second quarter.

SUMMARY
The sharp deterioration of the Brazilian economy over
the last year continued into the beginning of 2016. As
the economy awaits a solution to the political crisis
that has generated high volatility in the equity and
foreign exchange markets, continued to decline, with
rising unemployment, reduced investment and
inflation still at high levels.

in March and a very challenging international
environment. In the domestic market, the total
volume in relation to the same period last year
remained stable, demonstrating the company's
competitiveness in an adverse scenario and the
resilience of the markets served by Klabin. As a result
of the increase in sales volume, the more
undervalued real versus 1Q15 and Klabin’s
competitiveness in the domestic market, net revenue
in the period totaled R$1,463 million, up 12% over
the same period last year.

Externally, the central banks of the world's major
economies have maintained low interest rates, which
brought greater liquidity to global markets and a
consequent depreciation of the dollar, especially in
March. In this joint effort to return to the path of
economic growth, the main commodities prices
stabilized earlier this year after the significant
reduction seen throughout 2015.

Regarding the cost lines in the first quarter of 2016,
the increase in the cash cost per ton was below the
inflation recorded in the same period. The Company's
efforts to control costs, the dilution of fixed costs
through the higher sales volume and the
normalization of electricity prices more than offset
the impact of inflation that still persists on some
inputs and services contracted by Klabin.

The deterioration of activity levels in the Brazilian
economy continued to impact the paper and
packaging markets in the first quarter of the year. The
Brazilian Corrugated Board Association (ABPO)
indicated in its previous report from March a 5%
decline in corrugated board shipments in 1Q16,
compared to the same period in 2015.

It is worth noting that in the first quarter of 2016
Klabin was focused on the successful start of
operations at its new pulp mill, which will almost
double the Company’s production capacity. Pulp
production began in March, in full compliance with
the project's schedule and budget, with production
levels indicating a promising learning curve. Even
during the execution of this highly complex project
and the ongoing worsening of the Brazilian economic
indicators in early 2016, Klabin has once again proven
its ability to execute and the consistency of its results.
Through the versatility of its product line and
operations in resilient markets, adjusted EBITDA for
the quarter was R$512 million, up 11% over the same
period last year. In the last 12 months adjusted
th
EBITDA totaled R$2,026 million, marking the 19
consecutive quarter of growth, even without the
benefit accruing from the pulp sales resulting from
the Puma Project.

Meanwhile in the international packaging paper
market, despite the recent decline in the kraftliner list
price in Europe, the average price of €571/t (FOEX) in
1Q16 was the same as in 1Q15. This stability in
international prices, coupled with a higher average
exchange rate compared to the same period in 2015,
ensured strong profitability from sales to export
markets.
In 1Q16, the total sales volume reached 455 thousand
tons, up 4% over 1Q15, due to increases in paper
production capacity made over 2015. Using the agility
and flexibility of the product line, Klabin allocated
most of this additional production for export, taking
advantage of the still favorable conditions in these
markets, even with the recent appreciation of the real

Exchange Rate
The real remained at a level close to R$4.00/US$ in the first two months of the year, still reflecting the country’s
economic and political crisis. However, after the strong appreciation of the real over the month of March, caused by
changes in the domestic political scenario and the maintenance of interest rates in the United States, the exchange
rate at the end of the quarter was R$3.56/US$ , 9% down from the close of 2015. In turn, the average exchange rate,
which reflects the impact of the high levels of the first two months of the year, was R$3.90, up 2% over 4Q15 and up

OPERATING AND FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE
Sales volume
Even with the extended retraction of activity in the packaging markets in Brazil throughout 2015, Klabin recorded an
increase in sales volume at the beginning of 2016. The total volume sold by the Company, excluding wood, was 455
thousand tonnes for the quarter, up 4% from the same period in 2015. It is worth noting that even with the start of
production at the Puma Unit in March, no pulp sales were incorporated into the 1Q16 results. Given the decline in
the domestic economy and the turmoil in international markets, this increase in sales once again reflected the
flexibility and global competitiveness of Klabin’s product line. This flexibility, combined with the capacity increases
implemented last year, especially new Recycled Paper Machine nº24 in Goiana (PE), enabled the Company to expand
its position in profitable markets.

Much like at the end of last year, for the first quarter of 2016 the higher average exchange rate over the same period
last year and the slowdown of the Brazilian economy have created a more favorable environment for exports and
Klabin again increased its sales to export markets. On the other hand, a strong presence in more resilient segments
of the domestic market has enabled the Company to maintain its stable sales in Brazil, even with significant signs of
worsening in various sectors of the economy.
In this context, the volume of exports in 1Q16 grew 13% over the same quarter last year to 164 thousand tonnes in
the period. The volume of domestic sales totaled 291 thousand tonnes in 1Q16, the same level as the volume sold in
1Q15. Thus, the share of exports in the overall sales volume was 36% in the quarter, versus 33% in the same period
last year, highlighting once again the Company's agility in positioning itself in different market settings.

In the first quarter, net revenue, including wood, totaled R$1,463 million, up 12% over 1Q15. With the increasing
share of exports in the total volume, net revenue from sales to export markets totaled R$517 million in 1Q16, up
32% over 1Q15 and now accounting for 35% of total revenue, up from 30% in the same quarter last year.
Despite the impact of the economic weakness on the packaging paper markets in Brazil and the lower log sales in the
quarter with the start of supply to the new pulp plant, Klabin’s positioning in more resilient segments also increased
revenue in the domestic market, which was R$946 million for the quarter, up 3% over the same period last year.

The increase of the consumption of OCC (old corrugated containers) after the startup of the new Goiana recycling
machine, in addition to inflationary pressure on labor, exerted pressure on costs for the period. The higher export
sales volume, which increased the cost of freight, and the new hires to cope with the growth of the Company
operations also impacted the variation between the periods of comparison. On the other hand, lower costs of
energy, as well as the dilution of fixed costs through the increased sales volume, resulted in the increase in the per
ton cash cost in line with the government’s official price index for the comparison between the quarters.
Selling expenses totaled R$105 million in the quarter, up 11% over 1Q15, accompanying the increase in sales
revenue for the period. Thus, 1Q16 selling expenses represented 7% of net revenues, the same rate recorded in
1Q15, despite the increase in volume to the export market.
General and administrative expenses totaled R$100 million for the quarter, 33% over 1Q15 and 1% below the last
quarter of 2015. The new level of general and administrative expenses, already recorded in 4Q15, is mainly due to
extinction of payroll reduction programs by the government and the strengthening of corporate structures to cope
with the expansion of Klabin regarding its new pulp operations.
Other operating income/expenses resulted in a R$6 million expense in 1Q16.

Effect of the variation in the fair value of biological assets
The effect of changes in the fair value of biological assets was R$63 million positive in 1Q16, primarily due to the
growth of forests that have been recognized at their fair value. In turn, the effect of the depletion of the fair value
of biological assets in cost of goods sold was R$157 million in 1Q16. As a result, the non-cash impact of fair value of
the biological assets on operating income (EBIT) for the quarter was a negative R$101 million.

The larger volume of papers available for sale after the increase in capacity introduced in 2015 enabled Klabin to
increase its share in export markets over the same quarter last year. Additionally, even with the sharp slowdown of
the domestic economy, Klabin was able to maintain the total volume of sales in Brazil steady with the rate seen in
1Q15, reinforcing the competitiveness of its products and the consistency of the markets in which it operates.
Coupled with the Company’s disciplined cost matrix, the increase in net revenue from the higher volume of sales and
the devaluation of the real was reflected in higher earnings compared to the same quarter last year, with operating
cash flow (adjusted EBITDA) at R$512 million and an EBITDA margin of 35%.

This amount represents an 11% increase over the same quarter last year and includes Klabin’s R$12 million stake in
the company Florestal Vale do Corisco S.A.

Indebtedness and Financial Investments
Gross debt totaled R$17,889 million on March 31, 2016, down R$133 million from the end of 2015 mainly due to the
positive impact of the exchange rate on the portion of debt in foreign currency. Of the total debt, R$12,508 million,
or 70% (US$3,515 million) is denominated in US dollars, mainly export prepayments.
Even with the investments in the Puma Project, the Company’s cash and financial investments ended 1Q16 at
R$5,880 million, up R$269 million over 4Q15, a result of the Company's cash generation and capture of new
financing lines. This amount exceeds the financing amortizations due in the next 30 months.
Consolidated net debt totaled R$12,009 million on March 31, 2016, down R$402 million from the R$12,411 million
on December 31, 2015. This reduction is due to the effect of the lower exchange rate on foreign currency debt at the
end of the quarter and the Company’s cash flow generation, which more than offset the R$853 million in
investments and the R$ 120 million dividend payment made in the quarter. As a result, net debt/adjusted EBITDA,
which had been 6.3x at the end of 2015 fell to 5.9x at the end of 1Q16. It is worth noting that the launch of
operations at Klabin’s new pulp mill (Puma Project), which occurred in the last month of March, will tend to
accelerate the company's deleveraging process from the coming quarters.
The average maturity term remained stable at 48 months by the end of 1Q16, 40 months for financing in local
currency and 51 months for financing in foreign currency. Short-term debt at the end of the quarter amounted to
13% and the average cost of financing in local currency was 11.6% per annum and 4.6% per annum in foreign
currency.

Financial Result
Even with the increase in the Company's gross debt in the last twelve months due to the contracting inflows of credit
lines linked to the Puma Project, financial expenses remained stable in the first quarter of 2016. The contracting of
credit lines at attractive costs kept financial expenses at R$224 million in 1Q16, compared to R$216 million in 1Q15
and R$234 million in 4Q15.
Financial revenue came to R$157 million for the quarter, stable compared to 4Q15, but 32% higher compared to the
R$119 million registered in 1Q15. This increase is explained by the increase in Brazilian interest rates, and the
increase in the Company's cash position.
As a result, the positive impact from higher financial revenue and the maintenance of financial expenses left the
financial result, excluding exchange rate variations, steady with a net loss of R$67 million in the first quarter of 2016,
a gain of R$30 million compared to net loss of R$97 million in 1Q15.
The exchange rate ended the quarter 9% below the level seen at the end of 2015. As a result, due to the impact on
the foreign currency debt, the net foreign exchange variation was positive by R$1,080 million in 1Q16. It is valid to
point out that the exchange variation has an exclusively accounting effect on the Company’s balance sheet, with no
significant cash impact in the short term.

During the first quarter the log sales to third parties totaled 490 thousand tons, 35% below the 1Q15 volume. The
heavy rains that hit the forest regions of Paraná and Santa Catarina hampered the operation of timber harvesting,
impacting the log sales in the period. In addition to this factor, the beginning of the wood supply for new pulp
operation also contributed to lower sales to third parties.
With the difficulty in harvesting and timber transport over the period, selling prices to third parties were elevated
and revenue in log sales totaled R$80 million, down 11% compared to the 1Q15.

Kraftliner
In the 1Q16, the sales volume of container boards totaled 110 thousand tons, an increase of 15% over the first
quarter of 2015. With the higher availability of recycled papers by recent increases in capacity for the production of
corrugated boxes, Klabin continued to target higher sales of virgin fiber papers to the foreign market.
Therefore, exports of kraftliner, driven by high average exchange rate during the period, grew 29% in volume and
48% in revenues compared to the 1Q15.
In the foreign market kraftliner prices in the 1Q16 released by FOEX remained stable over the same period of 2015 at
€ 571/t. In the domestic market, even with the economic downturn, the cost pressure in the production chain, such
as personnel and old corrugated container (OCC), has been supporting prices for packaging.

Coated Boards
In 1Q16, coated boards sales reached to 166 thousand tons, up 2% increase over the same period last year. The
domestic market registered growth of 4% in volume compared to 1Q15, especially in the food and beverage sectors,
proving the resilience of these markets even amidst the deterioration of the Brazilian economy. In the export market
volumes remained stable in the same comparison.
Net revenue for the period totaled R$555 million, up 17% over the revenue recorded in the first quarter of 2015, due
to the higher sales volume and the higher exchange rate, which benefited the portion of the coated boards destined
for the export market.

The year began with a greater decrease in the corrugated board box industry, which was down 5.3% compared to
1Q15, according to data released by the Brazilian Corrugated Board Association (ABPO). Despite the unfavorable
scenario, Klabin intensified its sales initiatives and improved existing contracts, resulting in a decline that was less
than the industry average in 1Q16.
With regard to industrial bags, the economic deterioration in Brazil also impacted the construction industry, and
data released by the National Cement Industry Union (SNIC) showed decrease of 15% in 1Q16 from the same period
last year. The impact of this decrease was mitigated by Klabin with higher sales to the export market, as well as the
Company's strong presence in the Northeast, where demand has been higher compared to other regions. Klabin is
increasing its presence in countries as Mexico and the USA and is obtaining success in the diversification of bag sales
not only to construction markets, but also for others uses as with fertilizers, animal feed, coffee and other goods.
In this context, Klabin’s conversion sales fell by only 2% in 1Q16 compared to 1Q15, again demonstrating its
resilience and flexibility of action in several markets. Quarterly revenue increased 3% in the same comparison due to
the transfer of increases for some raw materials and services that had been impacting Klabin’s production costs.

INVESTMENTS
Klabin invested R$853 million in 1Q16, including
investments in the new pulp mill in Ortigueira (PR). Of the
total invested in the quarter, R$80 million was allocated to
the operational continuity of the plants, R$25 million was
allocated to forestry operations, R$14 million was invested
in special projects and capacity expansions and R$734
million in the Project Puma.
The 1Q16 marked the startup of Klabin’s new pulp mill (“Puma Unit”) located in Ortigueira, Paraná. The first pulp
bale was produced on March 4, 2016, already with Chain of Custody certification from the Forest Stewardship
Council® - FSC® (FSC-C129105). The new unit’s construction was completed in 24 months and on budget. Total
investment in the project was R$8.5 billion, which included the infrastructure, taxes and contractual corrections.
The Puma Unit have the capacity to produce 1.5 million tonnes of pulp, with 1.1 million tonnes of bleached
hardwood pulp (eucalyptus) and 400 thousand tonnes of bleached softwood pulp (pine), a portion of which will be
converted into fluff pulp, making it the world’s only industrial unit designed to produce the three fibers. Klabin’s
production will help substitute imports of fluff pulp, which is an important input used to make diapers and sanitary
pads and will represent hard currency out flow savings form the country.
After the start up, the operations of the plant has taken place within the learning curve established by Klabin. During
the month of April the production of fibers has grown continuously and has already achieved daily production levels
equivalent to 80% of the nominal capacity. The first sales of pulp were also made in April.
