SAO PAULO, Dec 3 (Reuters) - Petrobras’ chief executive officer, Roberto Castello Branco, told investors in New York that the company is already working on an additional share offering to reduce its stake in its distribution unit, newspaper Valor Economico reported on Tuesday.
Castello Branco said last month that state-controlled Petrobras wanted to reduce its stake in Petrobras Distribuidora SA, without elaborating.
Petrobras did not immediately comment on the Valor report.
