The CEO of Brazil's state-controlled power holding Centrais Eletricas Brasileiras SA expects the government to privatize the company through a share offering after February next year. In conference calls with analysts and reporters, Wilson Ferreira Jr. said the decision on the privatization will be taken this year, and he does not expect the government to demand a "golden share" in the company after its privatization, since the power industry is heavily regulated in Brazil. Ferreira also said he expects to sell all the stakes in windfarms and transmission companies Eletrobras has put on the block by November.
Brazil's state-controlled Centrais Eletricas Brasileiras SA , known as Eletrobras, said in a securities filing on Thursday that President Jair Bolsonaro had authorized studies into privatising the power company via a share offering.

Brazil's Supreme Court ruled on Thursday that state-run firms do not need congressional approval to sell their subsidiaries, a major victory for the government of President Jair Bolsonaro and state-run oil firm Petrobras. Also on Thursday, Supreme Court Justice Edson Fachin, who ruled in May to suspend the $8.6 billion sale of Petrobras' TAG pipeline unit to France's Engie SA, reversed his decision in light of the full court's ruling, allowing Petroleo Brasileiro SA, as the firm is formally known, to go ahead with the divestment. The decisions will allow Petrobras to proceed with its plan to divest $27 billion of non-core assets by 2023, which it has repeatedly said is key to reducing its bloated debt load.
