Brazil's Petrobras To Seek IPO For Gas Distribution Unit -Paper
RIO DE JANEIRO, March 2 (Reuters) - Brazil's state-controlled oil company Petroleo Brasileiro SA has decided to launch an initial public offering for its Liquigas gas distribution unit after competition watchdog Cade vetoed its proposed sale to Ultragaz, a local paper reported on Friday.
The IPO, with a secondary public offering of shares, could raise more than the 2.8 billion reais ($859.34 million) that Ultragaz had offered to pay, Folha de Sao Paulo reported, citing sources.
Petrobras did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
