YPF SA (YPFD) will invest a record 15 billion pesos ($3.44 billion) in 2012, up from 13.3 billion a year earlier, the company’s board decided today, a company official, who can’t be named because the announcement isn’t public, said in a telephone interview.
The government representative voted against the board’s proposal to use 91 percent of the company’s profit to capitalize the company, the official said. The capitalization was approved by the rest of the board and will be submitted for approval to a general shareholders meeting on April 25.
