About the Lawsuit

Braskem and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.

On March 11, 2015, a report from a São Paulo newspaper, Folha de S. Paolo, implicated Braskem in the corruption scandal surrounding Petróleo Brasileiro S.A. - Petrobras ("Petrobras"). The article states that Braskem paid at least $5 million annually to Petrobras between 2006 and 2012 to acquire crude derivative contracts like propylene and naphtha at cheaper prices, according to a testimony made by former Petrobras executive Paulo Roberto Costa and self-confessed money launderer Alberto Youssef.

On this news, the price of Braskem's ADRs plummeted by over 20%.
