RIO DE JANEIRO, May 11 /CNW/ - HRT Participações em Petróleo S.A. (the "Company" or "HRT") announces that the disclosure of its Quarterly
Information (ITR) for the first quarter of 2011, previously scheduled
for May 12, 2011, as disclosed in its annual calendar of corporate
events, has been postponed to May 14, 2011. This postponement is due to
the suspension of the Board of Directors' Meeting that began on May 10,
2011, which, among other matters, would examine said ITR. The meeting
was suspended during the examination of the contracting of 2D seismic
acquisition, prior to the deliberations on the ITR, and will resume on
May 13, 2011.
As a result, it became necessary to postpone the conference call with
analysts to May 18, 2011 at 10:00 a.m. (ET) in English and 12:00 noon
