Petrobras (PBR +1%) may have to pay a 4.7B real ($2.35B) tax claim related to the lease of foreign offshore oil platforms after a judge threw out an injunction allowing it to avoid payment until a court challenge of the tax ruling was resolved. PBR had already warned shareholders it had not made provisions for the charge.
