Dodge & Cox Comments on Petrobras

Petrobras (PBR), one of Latin America's largest companies, is a world leader in developing advanced technology for deep-water and ultra-deep water oil production. The company has an attractive asset base with above-average, long-term growth opportunities in reserves and production. Petrobras has an advantaged position in world-class resource basins; its oil fields in the Campos Basin account more than 80% of the Brazilian oil production and its "pre-salt" assets are among the world's largest new oil producing developments in decades. The Brazilian government owns over half of the company's voting shares, and has made Petrobras' growth a national priority. While the government's ownership and social objectives may force the company to take non-economic actions, we believe Petrobras' valuation and strong franchise make it an attractive investment opportunity.
