Eike Batista, chairman of the group said to Jornal Valor that OGX is only the beginning of the process. “Let’s start with OGX, but let’s do this with all other companies. I believe that companies should be independent. Investors like to buy stocks diversified, “he said.

The announcement aimed ending speculation that the EBX capital will open to foreign investors and thereby divert attention from domestic work. The IPO in London aims to continue the process of internationalization of the company.

Batista also said that the listing means to attract investors, who avoid operating in Brazil on account of the bureaucratic burden.
