Por: Latin LawyerImprimirVisualizar em PDF

Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP in New York and São Paulo has advised Petrobras on a global notes issuance worth US$2 billion.

The joint bookrunners relied on Shearman & Sterling LLP in New York and São Paulo, and Pinheiro Neto Advogados in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro.

The notes were issued by Petrobras' Dutch finance subsidiary, Petrobras Global Finance, with Petrobras acting as guarantor. The notes will be listed on the New York Stock Exchange.

The offering priced on 25 January, and closed on 1 February.

The funds raised will be used to repay existing debt and for general corporate purposes.

Petrobras continues to tackle its US$88 billion debt load. It has recently made a number of moves to generate revenue, including its largest-ever upstream sale, worth US$2.9 billion, and an initial public offering worth US$1.6 billion. Just under a month ago, the petroleum company settled a US class action corruption lawsuit brought about by US investors for US$2.95 billion.
