SAO PAULO (Reuters) - Holders of $6.22 billion worth of Petróleo Brasileiro SA bonds due between 2019 and 2021 have agreed to swap them for new seven- and 10-year securities, helping Brazil’s state-controlled oil producer trim a debt burden that is the largest among major oil firms.
In a Monday securities filing, Petrobras (PETR4.SA) said $2.285 billion worth of old debt will be swapped into the 5.299 percent bond due in 2025, and $3.935 billion worth of old debt into the 5.999 percent security maturing in 2028, respectively.
Results for a susbsequent repurchase of old notes will be released by Sept. 27, the filing said. The deadline for both the swap and repurchase tenders expired at 5 p.m. ET (2100 GMT) on Sept. 22, the filing said.
