Petroleo Brasileiro SA Analyst Notes
On May 9, 2014, Petroleo Brasileiro SA (Petrobras) announced its financial results for Q1 2014. Petrobras' gross profit reached $8.2 billion in Q1 2014, down 12.9% YoY, on sales revenues of $34.5 billion, which declined 5.1% YoY, mainly on the account of foreign currency translation effects (due to the appreciation of the USD against the Brazilian Real). Excluding those effects, local currency sales revenues were higher 12% YoY. According to Petrobras, consolidated net income attributable to the shareholders of Petrobras was $2.3 billion in Q1 2014, down 40.8% YoY, reflecting lower income before finance expense, share of profit of equity-accounted investments, profit sharing and income taxes and a decrease in net finance income (expense), which were partially offset by lower income tax expenses. Q1 2014 adjusted EBITDA came in at $6.1 billion, down 25.4% YoY. Net Debt/EBITDA ratio increased from 3.21x in Q4 2013 to 4.18x in Q1 2014.
