Oi S.A. - In Judicial Reorganization ("Oi" or the "Company"), announces to its shareholders and to the market in general that its management has selected the consultant firm Boston Consulting Group to advise Oi in its strategic review process. The service includes the analysis and definition of business models with a long-term perspective and the preparation of guidelines and implementation plans that assure the adoption of such models.

In addition, as part of such strategic review, the Company informs that it has selected Bank of America Merrill Lynch as financial advisor to procure and structure operations that involve monetization of non-core assets and M&A opportunities, in a further step to maximize value-creation and to broaden the options of financing sources to execute its investment plan, focusing in FTTH and 4.5G coverage.

The services to be provided by the strategic advisor and the financial advisor are complementary and will also be coordinated with the implementation with the Company’s Capex plan, which is being supported by the consultant Oliver Wyman. All those initiatives are in line with the objective to intensify its strategic, operational and financial transformation, on a long-term basis, encompassing technological, market and innovation trends and offering the adequate support for the effective implementation of its investment plan, aiming to strengthen and to reposition the Company.

The Company will keep its shareholders and the market informed of any material development of the subject matter of this Notice to the Market.
