By Tatiana Bautzer and Carolina Mandl

SAO PAULO, June 25 (Reuters) - Brazilian state-controlled oil company Petroleo Brasileiro SA priced a secondary share offering on Tuesday at 30.25 reais per common share, two sources with knowledge of the matter said.

State-owned lender Caixa Economica Federal has agreed to sell its 2.3% stake in Petrobras at a 1.5% discount to Tuesday's closing price of 30.70 reais per common share. Large demand from foreign investors allowed the offering to price at a discount lower than the 4% average in Brazilian secondary offerings in recent years.

Investment banking units of Caixa, UBS Group , Morgan Stanley , Bank of America and XP Investimentos managed the offering.
