SAO PAULO, April 1 (Reuters) - Brazil’s state-run oil company Petrobras will publish audited results by the end of this month, Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff said in an interview with Bloomberg, putting a firm deadline on a process that has kept the company away from capital markets.
“I am certain Petrobras will resolve all its problems by the end of April,” said Rousseff in a segment of the interview published on Wednesday, answering a question about reporting earnings in the wake of a vast corporate corruption scandal.
In February the company, known formally as Petroleo Brasileiro SA, said it planned to publish audited 2014 results by the end of May, but last month Petrobras said it would publish “as soon as possible” and no date had been decided.
A presidential press officer was not immediately able to confirm her statements. (Editing by W Simon)
