2 PROFILE With a presence in more than 40 countries, Positivo s origin and main focus of activity is education. In Brazil, around nine thousand employees work on the development of products and services that directly impact some 1 million public and private school students nationwide. Positivo Informática also has operations in Argentina, employing around 500 people. Based in Curitiba, capital of the state of Paraná, the organization has operations in 26 states and in the Distrito Federal, with business units in five market segments: Teaching, Educational Solutions, Printing, Culture and Technology. Expertise in education generates synergy among the Positive business units constituting the company s principal focus of activity at the present moment SUSTAINABILITY REPORT 7

3 Business synergy Having education in its broadest sense as the central focus of their operations is what differentiates the Positivo group companies. Recognition of the quality achieved over 42 years is the company s hallmark and is reflected in the activities of each of its businesses: Editora Positivo, which produces the educational books and teaching systems used by more than 1 million students in Brazil and Japan; Positivo Informática, a pioneer in combining technology and teaching to open new horizons in education; and Posigraf, which prints the books and educational materials for students in the Positivo schools and programs and in associated institutions. Since 2012, this common goal has been further strengthened by the foundation of the Instituto Positivo, created to leverage joint actions and foment the engagement of all the units in education-related projects that provoke a positive social impact. The synergy between the companies is the group s major differential. The drive and commitment that have made Positivo a national benchmark in education provoking positive effects on the whole of society and not just in its schools represent today the seal of quality and seriousness that characterize each of the Positivo companies in their quest to make a relevant contribution to education and social transformation in Brazil. Recognition of the tradition of quality achieved over 42 years in activity is Positivo s hallmark. 8 GRUPO POSITIVO
