Eletrobras sees Santo Antônio partners getting final offer by April

SAO PAULO, March 31 (Reuters) - Brazil's state-controlled power holding company Centrais Elétricas Brasileiras SA said it expects its partners in the Santo Antônio hydroelectric dam to get a binding purchase offer in April, Chief Executive Wilson Ferreira Junior said on Friday.

Eletrobras could sell its own stake in the project as well, depending on the terms of the offer, he said, adding that there was a similar, less advanced process underway for the even larger Belo Monte dam. (Reporting by Luciano Costa; Writing by Ana Mano; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
