Petrobras Leads LA Rankings

Petrobras leads for the third year in a row the ranking of the 500 largest companies in Latin America. It also has the most valuable brand among the region's companies and it is the only Latin American corporation on the list of the top 100 best-reputed global corporations. Th e three rankings were announced between June and July 2012.

A list of the 500 largest companies in Latin America was published by the magazine AmericaEconomia. It was determined considering net sales values, in dollars, of Latin American companies in 2011. Petrobras achieved fi rst place for the third consecutive year, with a turnover exceeding US$ 130 billion in 2011. Th e subsidiary Petrobras Distribuidora was placed sixth on the list, with revenues exceeding US$ 39 billion.

Petrobras also won the fi rst position in the BrandZ ranking "50 Most Valuable Brands in Latin America", an original study sponsored by companies WPP and Millward Brown. Petrobras' brand value was estimated at US$ 10.5 billion. Th e study was based on interviews with about 2 million consumers in more than 30 countries.

Another highlight is the company's presence, for the second consecutive year, on the list of the top 100 global companies with the best reputation. Petrobras is the only Latin American company and the only energy company included in the ranking, at the 98th place. Th e list was prepared by the Reputation Institute, a private institution for advising and research. Companies were evaluated through research with a group of 47,000 people from 15 countries.
