Petróleo Brasileiro S.A. – Petrobras, following up on the release disclosed on 07/03/2020, informs that its wholly-owned subsidiary Petrobras Biocombustível S.A. (PBIO) signed today an agreement for the sale of its 8.40% stake in the company Bambuí Bioenergia S.A. (Bambuí) to Turdus Participações S.A., which holds the other 91.60% stake in the company.
The transaction was concluded with the payment of the symbolic amount of R$ 1.00 to PBIO, due to Bambuí’s negative equity. The operation closing was simultaneous to the signing of the agreement for purchase and sale of shares, which allowed the immediate withdrawal of Bambuí’s capital.
