Petrobras records net income of R$ 5.3 billion in 1Q15

ResultsRead below the announcement made on Friday (May, 15) about our income:

• Petrobras posted net income of R$ 5.3 billion in 1Q15, 1% down on 1Q14, influenced by the increase in the company’s net financial expense, especially due to the higher depreciation of the real against the U.S. dollar.

• Operating income totaled R$ 13.3 billion, 76% up on 1Q14, chiefly due to the expansion in oil and gas production, higher margins from the sale of oil products and lower expenses with the government take and imports. In addition, the 1Q14 result was impacted by the provisioning for the Program to Encourage Voluntary Severance (PIDV) (R$ 2.4 billion), which did not occur in 2015.
