Petrobras Signs Agreement in Principle to Settle Class Action in the…

first_img Author: Priyanka Ann Saini Petrobras announced yesterday that it has signed an agreement in principle to settle the securities class action lawsuit filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York.The agreement, which is subject to approval by the court, is intended to resolve all pending and prospective claims by purchasers of Petrobras securities in the United States and by purchasers of Petrobras securities that are listed for trading in the United States. It eliminates the risk of an adverse judgment which, as Petrobras has previously reported, could have a material adverse effect on the company and its financial situation, and puts an end to the uncertainties, burdens and costs of protracted litigation.Under the proposed settlement, Petrobras has agreed to pay USD 2.95 billion to resolve claims in two installments of USD 983 million and a last installment of USD 984 million. The first installment will be paid within 10 days of preliminary approval of the settlement by the court. The second installment will be paid within 10 days of final approval of the settlement. The third installment will be paid by the later of (i) six months after final approval, or (ii) January 15, 2019.  The total settlement amount will be recognised in the fourth quarter of 2017.The agreement does not constitute any admission of wrongdoing or misconduct by Petrobras. In the agreement, Petrobras expressly denies liability. This reflects its status as a victim of the acts uncovered by Operation Car Wash, as recognised by Brazilian authorities including the Brazilian Supreme Court.  As a victim of the scheme, Petrobras has already recovered R$1.475 billion in restitution in Brazil and will continue to pursue all available legal remedies from culpable companies and individuals.The agreement is in the company’s best interest and that of its shareholders, given the risks of a verdict advised by a jury, particularities of US procedure and securities laws, as well its assessment of the status of the class action and the nature of such litigation in the United States, where only approximately 0.3% of securities-related class actions proceed to trial.The agreement will now be submitted to the district court in the SDNY for review. If preliminary approval is granted, the court will notify the members of the class of the terms of the proposed settlement. After considering any objections and a hearing on the fairness of the proposed settlement, the court will decide whether to grant final approval.As a result of the agreement, the parties will ask the United States Supreme Court to defer consideration of Petrobras’s petition for a writ of certiorari, which was scheduled for January 5, 2018, pending final approval of the proposed settlement.Sea News, January 4last_img read more

Learning experience for PNG swimmer at Youth Oympics

first_imgYouth Olympics Leonard Kalate rounded off his 50m swim event with a time of 31.45 seconds. In his second and final breaststroke swim event, Kalate came second last against Guyana, Liechtenstein, Hong Kong, Jordan, Algeria, Gambia and Turkey, with Gambia disqualified, leaving seven countries in heat one of the 50m breaststroke. Kalate said he had learnt a lot from his time, competing in the Youth Olympics. “I’ve learnt a lot about myself as a swimmer, performance wise and that’s all thanks to my coach, Ashley Seeto, so now what’s left to do is go back home and just get better. I also am very proud of my fellow athletes, Natalie and Terrence and I’m grateful for the team we’re all in,” he said. And to his supporters he said: “I’d really like to thank everyone back home that have showed their support it’s a wonderful feeling knowing everyone is behind you.” Present to watch and support Leonard through his race was, Secretary-General of the PNG Olympic Committee and IOC member, Auvita Rapilla, Team PNG general manager Lua Rikis and chief medical officer Matthew Natusch. Chef de Mission, Karo Lelai believes in using international events as lessons. “This is a wonderful opportunity for our young athletes to grow where by using the Youth Olympics and the level of competition to raise the bar and challenge themselves it should not always be about the medals but self-improvement”. Kalate and coach Seeto both flew out on Saturday to make it in time for his (Leonard) exams back in Lae. Kalate is undertaking studies at the University of Technology.last_img read more
