His contract had a cost of BRL 7.6 million, according to the board’s notes, and the agreement for termination was signed with an indemnity of BRL 7 million — a 7.9% difference in relation to the original cost.
The screen labeled “Contract Termination” shows, in the final line of the second column, the total of the six contracts: R$ 63.5 million. In the column on the right, the total value of the terminations reaches R$ 27,512,291.43. And in the total space for the difference between contract and termination, the accumulated amount mentioned is R$ 36,056,558.51 with a percentage difference of 56.7%.
