    Brazil's cracked city leaves corporate heavyweights on the hook

    A sudden, violent tremor knocked José Rinaldo Januario to the floor of his kitchen one Saturday afternoon two years ago - a mystery given the Brazilian city of Maceio had little history of seismic activity. "It was like a volcano exploded," said Januario, 47. Last May, federal authorities identified a culprit: petrochemical giant Braskem.

    CEO of Brazil's Petrobras objects to delay in Braskem sale

    The chief executive of Brazilian state-run oil firm Petroleo Brasileiro SA said on Friday he wants to sell the company's stake in petrochemical company Braskem SA within 12 months, adding that he strongly disagreed with reported plans to delay the sale. On Monday, Reuters reported that creditors of corruption-ensnared construction conglomerate Odebrecht SA, which also has a large stake in Braskem, were in advanced talks to delay a sale for up to two years. "To me, it means they do not want to sell anything," CEO Roberto Castello Branco said during a meeting with investors in London.

    Exclusive: Brazil's Odebrecht in talks to stave off Braskem sale, keep payout - sources

    Creditors of Brazil's Odebrecht SA are in advanced talks to let the corruption-ensnared conglomerate keep its crown jewel asset, listed petrochemical company Braskem SA <BRKM5.SA>, for another two years, retreating from their prior demand for a quick sale, two sources with knowledge of the matter said. In a further victory for Odebrecht, which is trying to restructure 51 billion reais ($12.2 billion) in debt, its bank creditors will let it keep receiving most of Braskem's dividends - now virtually Odebrecht's sole revenue source - during that period. The engineering and construction company, implicated in a series of graft scandals across Latin America, will submit its debt proposal to a creditors' meeting on Wednesday, but representatives of creditors whose debt is secured by Braskem shares have informally agreed to it, the sources added, asking for anonymity to disclose private talks.
