Brazilian former President Michel Temer was hit with more graft charges on Friday, just a day after being charged in a separate corruption case, according to federal prosecutors. Temer, who left the presidency at the end of 2018, was arrested last week as part of an investigation into kickbacks on a nuclear plant's construction contract involving the Brazilian subsidiary of Swedish consulting firm AF Poyry, along with engineering firms Engevix and Argeplan. Temer has since been released and denies wrongdoing.
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.
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.

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.

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.
