BTG Invest $1 Billion to Double Stake in Oil Rig Operator

BTG Pactual SA’s private-equity funds have announced that it has invested $1 billion in Sete Brasil Participacoes SA.

Sete Brasil has been seeking investment to raise capital in order to carry out its $27 billion plans to build deepwater drilling platforms in the south of Brazil and rent them to Petrobras. This latest sale of shares was done with the intention of raising $2.7 billion.

BTG, Banco Santander Brasil SA, and Banco Bradesco SA, all had a 13.7 percent stake in the oil rig operator before this round of fund raising efforts. BTG more than doubled its stake in the company to 30 percent, Santander’s stake shrank to 6.9 %, whereas Bradesco, who didn’t buy any additional stock, has seen its share in the company fall to around 3 percent.

Pension funds Petros and Funcef each held 19.2 percent before the capital increase, while Previ and Valia, also pension funds, had 10 percent and 5.5 percent, respectively. Petrobras held the remaining 5 percent and is keeping its stake.
