Brazil gives antitrust nod to Eletrobras distributor sale

SAO PAULO (Reuters) - Brazil's antitrust agency Cade has approved the sale of a distribution company owned by state-run Centrais Eletricas Brasileiras SA, according to the official gazette on Wednesday.

Boa Vista Energia, a distribution company based in the remote state of Roraima, was sold at action by Eletrobras, as the state-run company is known, in August. The buyers were Oliveira Energia and Atem's Distribuidora de Petróleo.
