Source: 11/6/2020, Location: South America

Petrobras, following up on the releases disclosed on 07/24/2020 and 07/28/2020, informs that it has concluded the sale of its entire stake in the Baúna field (BM-S-40 concession area), located in shallow waters in the Santos Basin, to Karoon Petróleo & Gás Ltda (Karoon), a subsidiary of Karoon Energy Ltd.

After fulfilling the previous conditions, the transaction was concluded with the payment of US$ 150 million to Petrobras. The value received at the closing is added to the amount of US$ 49.9 million paid to Petrobras at the signing, on July 24, 2019. The remaining amount, estimated in approximately US$ 40 million, will be paid by Karoon in 18 months from today's date, considering the price adjustments, since the base date of the transaction is 01/01/2019 and, thus, the value was adjusted according to the result of the cash flow incorporated by Petrobras until the closing date. In addition, it was agreed by the parties the contingent part of the price, to be received by Petrobras until 2026, in the amount of USS 285 million.

This disclosure complies with the Petrobras' internal rules and with the provisions of the special procedure for assignment of rights to exploration, development and production of oil, natural gas and other fluid hydrocarbons, provided for in Decree 9,355/2018.

This transaction is in line with the portfolio optimization strategy and the improvement of the company’s capital allocation, increasingly concentrating its resources in world-class assets in deep and ultra-deep waters, where Petrobras has demonstrated great competitive edge over the years.
