On February 26, 2014, Petroleo Brasileiro SA (Petrobras) reported its Q4 2013 and full-year 2013 financial results. The Company reported consolidated net income attributable to the shareholders of Petrobras of BRL23.6 billion, up 11.3% YoY during full-year 2013.

Meanwhile, Petrobras' Q4 2013 consolidated net income attributable to the shareholders was up 85.0% QoQ to BRL6.3 million, reflecting higher oil export volumes, lower dry well write-offs, gains from sale of the interest in block BC-10, and tax benefits from provision of interest on own capital.
