This excerpt taken from the PBR 20-F filed May 22, 2009.
The current global financial crisis and uncertain economic environment have led to lower oil prices that, if sustained, may reduce our cash flow and make it difficult for us to achieve our growth objectives as defined in our 2009-2013 Business Plan.
 
The current global financial crisis and uncertain economic environment that worsened in the second half of 2008 have led to a worldwide decrease in demand for oil products. As a result, prices for oil products have fallen and our cash flows have been reduced. If oil prices remain low, we may be required to revise our growth objectives, particularly in light of substantial decreases in the availability of credit in the capital markets. The global financial and economic situation may also have a negative impact on third parties with whom we do, or may do, business. Any of these factors may affect our results of operations, financial condition and liquidity.
