RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL – April 3, 2018 – Petróleo Brasileiro S.A. – Petrobras (“Petrobras”) (NYSE: PBR) announces that its wholly-owned subsidiary Petrobras Global Finance B.V. (“PGF”) has delivered notices of redemption to the holders of the outstanding 4.875% Global Notes due 2020 (the “4.875% Notes”) and 5.75% Global Notes due 2020 (the “5.75% Notes” and, together with the 4.875% Notes, the “Notes”).

The redemption date for the Notes will be May 3, 2018 (the “Redemption Date”).

The redemption price for the 4.875% Notes will be the greater of (A) 100% of the principal amount of such Notes and (B) the sum of the present values of the remaining scheduled payments of principal and interest thereon (exclusive of interest accrued to the Redemption Date) discounted to the Redemption Date on an annual basis (assuming a 360-day year consisting of twelve 30-day months) at the Treasury Rate plus 25 basis points (the “4.875% Notes Redemption Price”), plus in the case of each of clauses (A) and (B) above, accrued interest on the principal amount of such Notes from March 17, 2018 to (but not including) the Redemption Date. The 4.875% Notes Redemption Price will be determined and communicated to holders of the 4.875% Notes no later than the third Business Day preceding the Redemption Date.

The redemption price for the 5.75% Notes will be the greater of (A) 100% of the principal amount of such Notes and (B) the sum of the present values of the remaining scheduled payments of principal and interest thereon (exclusive of interest accrued to the Redemption Date) discounted to the Redemption Date on a semiannual basis (assuming a 360-day year consisting of twelve 30-day months) at, in each case, the Treasury Rate plus 35 basis points (the “5.75% Notes Redemption Price” and, together with the 4.875% Notes Redemption Price, the “Redemption Prices” ), plus in the case of each of clauses (A) and (B) above, accrued interest on the principal amount of such Notes from January 20, 2018 to (but not including) the Redemption Date. The 5.75% Notes Redemption Price will be determined and communicated to holders of the 5.75% Notes no later than the third Business Day preceding the Redemption Date.

Payment on the Notes will be made prior to 3:00 pm New York time on the business day preceding the Redemption Date by credit to the account of The Bank of New York Mellon, the trustee for the Notes (the “Trustee”), as paying agent for the Notes. The Trustee will cause funds to be paid to The Depository Trust Company for further payment to its participants.
Because all of the Notes are held in book-entry form, payment of the Redemption Prices, plus accrued interest, will be made directly to the registered holders.

On the Redemption Date, the Redemption Prices, plus accrued interest, will become due and payable. Interest on the Notes will cease to accrue on and after the Redemption Date. Upon the redemption, the Notes will cease to be listed on the New York Stock Exchange and the Notes and the related guarantees by Petrobras will be cancelled and any obligation thereunder extinguished.
