Battea Class Action Services, LLC Alerts Petrobras Investors – The Time to Act Is Now

Del

USD $3 Billion US settlement: In January 2018, Petrobras announced that in connection with the losses investors suffered from the Lava Jato bribery scandal, it had agreed to a USD $3 Billion settlement with investors who purchased Petrobras Common or Preferred American Depository Shares (ADS) and certain bonds in the U.S. The court has preliminarily approved the proposed settlement. The deadline to submit a claim in the U.S. case is set for June 9, 2018.

International Litigation and Settlement Initiative in the Netherlands: Separately, litigation efforts conducted by Stichting Petrobras Compensation Foundation against Petrobras continue in the Netherlands on behalf of investors who also suffered billions of dollars in losses in Petrobras common shares (PETR3) and Petrobras preferred shares (PETR4), which are listed on BM&F Bovespa, as well as Petrobras bonds that were sold outside of the U.S. The next hearing date for that litigation is on June 28, 2018 in District Court in Rotterdam.

Investor Claims Filing and Participation: The landscape surrounding the global litigations against Petrobras and related settlements and loss recovery opportunities for investors is more complex than usual due to a multitude of factors, including the complexity of Petrobras’ capital structure, with its equity being listed on exchanges in the US, Brazil, and through global linked market systems, and the numerous securities that are eligible for recovery, as well as the multiple currency denominations of Petrobras bonds that were issued and offered both in the US and internationally. The proposed US settlement has a number of qualifying conditions and more than 20 different equity related price loss calculations. Identifying and asserting the proper securities in each of the proposed or pending settlements will be critical for investors to ensure they receive all of the monies to which they are entitled.

Battea is the leading global expert in all stages of class actions and class settlements in connection with securities, foreign exchange, derivatives, and antitrust litigations and settlements, acting on behalf of more than 700 institutional investors worldwide, including the world’s biggest banks, hedge funds, and buy-side investors.

Underscoring the Company’s specialized expertise in the Petrobras matter, it has been retained to process and analyze investor transaction eligibility by the international coalition undertaking the international litigation efforts in the Netherlands.

Who is Eligible to Recover in the US Settlement:

The US Settlement covers persons or entities that purchased or otherwise acquired equity or debt securities of Petrobras (or Petrobras International Finance Company S.A. and/or Petrobras Global Finance B.V., its wholly owned financing subsidiaries) on the NYSE or that cleared or settled through DTC’s book-entry system, or pursuant to certain other covered transactions between January 22, 2010 and July 28, 2015; and/or purchased or otherwise acquired debt securities issued by Petrobras or its financing subsidiaries directly in, pursuant to and/or traceable to a May 13, 2013 public offering registered in the U.S. and/or a March 10, 2014 public offering registered in the U.S. before August 11, 2014, in the case of the May 13, 2013 public offering, or before May 15, 2015, in the case of the March 10, 2014 public offering.

Who is Eligible to Participate in the International Recovery Action in the Netherlands:

The pending international recovery action in the Netherlands covers all persons who purchased or acquired before July 28, 2015 any Petrobras security not covered by the US Settlement, which includes both Petrobras common and preferred shares traded on Bovespa or through linked market systems outside of the US, as well as all bonds offered outside of the US. Petrobras Global Finance B.V., which promoted Petrobras to the international capital markets, is not headquartered in Brazil, but rather in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, where other Petrobras subsidiaries involved in the Lava Jato bribery scandal are domiciled as well. Further in the EU, Petrobras became subject to the CNMV, the Spanish Financial Market Regulator, when the Company opened access to its shares listed on Bovespa through a linked market system arrangement with Bolsa de Madrid.

Battea can assist investors with determining and preserving eligibility in both the U.S. case and the international Netherlands case. For more information, contact Battea today at info@battea.com or call +1 (203) 987-4949.

Elliott Advisors (UK) Limited Statement on Telecom Italia26.4.2018 19:49Pressemelding

Elliott Advisors (UK) Limited (“Elliott”) today sent a new letter and a presentation to Telecom Italia (“TIM” or the “Company”) shareholders calling upon shareholders to uphold best practice governance principles at TIM’s upcoming shareholder meeting on May 4th. Inadequate governance and poor stewardship have imposed a heavy cost on TIM’s stakeholders for too long. Vivendi’s repeated missteps and self-serving behaviour have eroded the value of TIM’s shares and destroyed shareholder trust. The question being put to TIM shareholders on May 4th is: can you entrust your investment to Vivendi as long-term stewards of your capital and this company moving forward? Shareholders should take the opportunity to correct a governance structure rife with conflict and demand high quality and independent stewardship at the Board level. Shareholders have the opportunity to remove an otherwise permanent, persisting and pervasive impairment of value. This pivotal vote offers a textbook opportunity to put
