Last Friday, the Venezuelan Government announced it would devalue its currency to bring relief to public finances. The adjustment in the foreign exchange rate entered into force this Wednesday.
Additionally, Baker Hughes' major rival, Halliburton Co. estimated that devaluation in Venezuela would lead to exchange losses amounting to some USD 30 million, around 6% of the expected revenue in the first quarter.
