    UPDATE 4-Petrobras, Brazil government dodge bullet as Supreme Court approves asset sales

    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.

    Brazil's state-controlled Centrais Eletricas Brasileiras SA has not met its workforce reduction target with a voluntary buyout program, the company's chief executive said on Friday.

    Private investors raise bets in Brazil power sector as state firms fade

    International private companies have increased their investment in Brazil's power sector over the last three years even as the country's cash-strapped state-controlled companies have cut back, a Reuters survey of power companies shows. Eight out of 11 large foreign private firms operating in Brazil boosted investments in the power sector from 2016 to 2018, some of them by more than 200 percent, the poll showed. Meanwhile, the three largest state-controlled firms - Eletrobras , Cemig and Copel - cut their annual spending by around 45 percent over the same period.

    Brazil's Eletrobras reports hefty profit, boosted by privatizations

    Brazilian state-run electricity company Eletrobras on Thursday reported a fourth-quarter profit of 12.07 billion reais ($3.02 billion), a sharp turnaround from the year before, thanks in part to the sale of money-losing subsidiaries and the reversal of impairments. The quarterly performance of Centrais Eletricas Brasileiras SA, as the company is formally known, marks a strong improvement over the same period in 2017, when the firm posted a loss of 3.9 billion reais. Throughout 2018, the Eletrobras privatized six distribution subsidiaries in northern and northeastern Brazil.

    Brazil's Eletrobras privatization plan could be ready by June -minister

    A plan to transfer to private investors a controlling stake at Latin America's largest power firm, Brazil's Eletrobras, could be ready as soon as June, Energy Minister Bento Albuquerque said on Wednesday. Albuquerque said the Brazilian government wants to discuss the plan in detail with lawmakers before it sends the proposal for a vote in the Congress. The privatization likely will happen through a capitalization plan in which new shares would be offered to investors in a process that would dilute the largest shareholder, the Brazilian government, to such a level that it will no longer hold a controlling stake.

    Brazil's Petrobras Distribuidora gets profit boost from Eletrobras privatizations

    Petrobras Distribuidora SA, the distribution unit of Brazilian state-run oil firm Petroleo Brasileiro SA, posted a major boost in quarterly net profit on Tuesday thanks to the effective payment of debts it was owed. In a securities filing, the firm posted a fourth-quarter net profit of 1.605 billion reais ($427 million), up some 202.3 percent from the same period a year before and well above the mean estimate of 613 million reais calculated by Refinitiv. In the filing, the firm, which went public in December 2017, said that much of the net profit boost could be attributed to the effective payments of debts that it was owed via the privatization of Centrais Eletricas de Rondonia, Boa Vista Energia and Eletroacre.

    Eletrobras delays auction of Ceal energy distributor amid high interest

    The privatization auction of a unit of Brazilian state-run power holding company Centrais Eletricas Brasileiras SA was delayed to accommodate investors who needed more time to examine the unit, the company's chief executive said on Monday. Many potential buyers had requested information in the last week about the Ceal unit, said Wilson Ferreira Jr, the CEO of Eletrobras, as the company is known. The successful sale of Ceal would mark Eletrobras' complete exit from electricity distribution, having already sold off five other subsidiaries in the segment, which together had accumulated billions of dollars in losses over decades.

    Brazilian development bank BNDES has pushed back the auction of a unit of Centrais Elétricas Brasileiras SA, originally scheduled for next week, to Dec. 10, the state-controlled power company said in a securities filing late on Thursday. The auction is a key step towards the privatization of Eletrobras, as the power holding is known, and has been marred by repeated delays. Reuters reported on Oct. 30 that Eletrobras could take on an additional 3 billion reais in debt in order to pave the way for the Amazonas privatization.
