J. Alberto Arias, Chairman of Largo’s Board of Directors commented: “Andrea's extensive knowledge of the metals sector, global financial markets, and specifically Brazil, her native country where she resides, makes her an excellent addition to our Board of Directors. With Andrea, the Board has gained an invaluable member who will assist the Company in enhancing value for Largo shareholders.” He continued: “In addition, Andrea most recently served on the board of Largo Physical Vanadium Corp. ("LPV") during its founding, providing her with a thorough understanding of both the vanadium market fundamentals and the innovative business model we developed between Largo, Largo Clean Energy and LPV. It is our view that LPV has the potential to substantially improve the competitiveness of the vanadium flow battery industry in the future and the prospects of vanadium demand in general.”

Andrea Weinberg commented: “As the vanadium industry enters an exciting new phase of growth, largely driven by the world’s decarbonization needs and clean energy transition, it is my pleasure to join Largo's Board of Directors and work closely with the management team and other Board members to execute on the Company's two-pillar business strategy. Largo has developed a compelling business proposition to help advance a low-carbon future and I am excited to be a part of it going forward."

Ms. Weinberg is a Director of Cosan, a Brazilian holding company of logistics, gas, fuels, lubricants and mining assets in Brazil. She has over 25 years of experience in the financial markets working at companies such as BTG Pactual, BlackRock for Latin American and Global Emerging Market funds, AllianceBernstein and Dynamo Administradora de Recursos covering commodities (metals & mining, pulp and paper and oil), amongst other things.
