City of Providence Sues Petrobras

The city of Providence, R.I., has sued Petrobras for bond losses the city sustained in a company corruption scandal. The lawsuit, filed in New York, claims Petrobras made false statements that inflated the company's value, and when the corruption scandal was revealed in Brazil, the city's investment declined. Several other U.S. investors who bought financial instruments, known as American Depository Receipts (ADRs), have sued Petrobras, but the Providence suit names several of the company's executives as defendants. Thus far, 39 people in Brazil have been indicted on corruption, money laundering and racketeering in the scandal. The Brazilian Federal Police say the indicted members of the group moved over $3.9 billion in what they term "atypical" financial transactions. Brazilian courts have blocked about $270 million in assets of the suspects.

Petróleo Brasileiro S.A. – Petrobras Reports Consolidated Earnings and Production Results for the Third Quarter and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2014; Provides Free Cash Flow Guidance for 2015

Petróleo Brasileiro S.A. – Petrobras reported consolidated earnings and production results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2014. For the quarter, sales revenues were BRL 88,378 million against BRL 77,700 million last year. Free cash flow was BRL 4,249 million against negative free cash flow of BRL 5,232 million last year. The 13% increase in sales revenues is attributable to higher oil product prices in the domestic market resulting from the impact in the full year of 2014 of diesel and gasoline price adjustments in 2013 and the impact of foreign currency depreciation (8%) over the price of oil products that are adjusted to reflect international prices and export prices, as well as higher electricity and natural gas prices. For the quarter, total crude oil and natural gas production was 2,746 mbbl/day against 2,522 mbbl/day last year. For the nine months, total crude oil and natural gas production was 2,627 mbbl/day against 2,542 mbbl/day last year. For the nine months, sales revenues were BRL 252,221 million against BRL 223,862 million last year. Negative free cash flow was BRL 9,154 million against negative free cash flow of BRL 12,820 million last year. Net debt was BRL 261,445 million against BRL 192,987 at September 30, 2013. The Executive Officers recently approved the implementation of a series of actions that will be undertaken in order to maintain cash level, which was BRL 62.4 billion as of September 30, 2014, and the liquidity of the company. These actions include, for example, discounting receivables, reducing the level of capital expenditures, reviewing product pricing strategies and reducing operating costs in activities that were out of the scope of structuring cost reduction programs; and assure positive free cash flow next year, considering crude oil prices of around USD 70/bbl and foreign exchange rate of BRL 2.60/USD; thus eliminating the need for additional financing in the capital markets next year.
