核心提示:在巴西国家石油公司美国股东集体诉讼案中,普华永道和原告达成和解赔偿协议,赔偿金额为5000万美元。

PwC:用5000万美元,终于摆平了这场官司......

审计总是充满风险,而在这个项目,审计师无疑是和一群魔鬼打交道。不过,今天审计师用5000千万美元终于摆平了这场官司  

据路透社报道,上周,在巴西国家石油公司美国股东集体诉讼案中,这家公司的前审计师PwC巴西和原告达成和解赔偿协议,赔偿金额为5000万美元。

这个集体诉讼的累计赔偿金额终于突破30亿美元。此前,原告律师和巴西国家石油达成29.5亿美元的和解赔偿。

该集体诉讼原告律师将可能获得高达2.85亿美元的律师费。

虽然此案件的赔偿金额高达30亿美元,但远低于此前外界所预计的50亿至100亿美元的赔偿规模。

以下是路透社报道:

NEW YORK (Reuters)-Investors are now seeking approval for $3billion of settlements arising from the corruption scandal that enveloped Brazil’s state-controlled oil company,Petroleo Brasileiro SA,including a new $50million settlement with its auditor.

The new settlement,with PricewaterhouseCoopers’(PwC)Brazilian subsidiary,was disclosed in Manhattan federal court on Thursday night.Lawyers for the investors,led by the law firm Pomerantz in New York,plan to seek up to $285million in fees,according to the filings.

“We were keen to put this protracted legal matter behind us,and a settlement was the best way to achieve this,”said Márcia Avruch,a spokeswoman for PwC Brazil.

The settlements and attorneys’fees must be approved by U.S.District Judge Jed Rakoff.

Petrobras said on Jan.3that it would pay $2.95billion to settle a class action lawsuit by investors who said their shares lost value as a result of a sprawling corruption probe in Brazil focusing on the company.

If approved,the deal would represent the largest-ever settlement payout to investors in the United States by a foreign entity,according to a statement from Pomerantz on Friday.Though smaller than many analysts expected,it is among the largest investor class action settlements in U.S.history.

Petrobras has denied wrongdoing and has maintained it was a victim of misconduct by former executives.The company said in a court filing Thursday that it reserves the right to recover money from former executives and others accused of corruption who were not part of the settlement.

For the last four years,Brazil has been rocked by the so-called Car Wash investigation into kickbacks paid by contractors to executives of state-run companies and politicians in return for public projects.

The settlement put an end to “extremely high uncertainty”about the company’s potential liability,JPMorgan said in a Jan.3client note,adding that it had expected a figure in excess of $5billion.Analysts at Brazilian bank BTG Pactual said the market had expected a settlement of $5billion to $10billion.

Petrobras Chief Executive Pedro Parente said on Jan.16that the company would not consider additional shareholder settlements in other countries unless forced to by law.
