It’s a designation harking back to the leaked audios of a late-night talk between then-President Michel Temer and Joesley Batista, one of two brothers who control JBS SA, one of the nation’s biggest companies. Now, two years after Joesley and Wesley Batista provided alleged evidence against Temer and admitted to bribing hundreds of politicians, Brazil is still recovering from a scandal that undermined efforts to overhaul the nation’s pension system and restore its recession-hit economy. JBS shares have more than doubled this year -- including the biggest weekly gain in three years last week -- to an all-time high.

In a statement sent to Reuters on Thursday, JBS said Seara became the first company in Brazil authorized by India to sell chicken products in the Asian nation.

Tyson Foods Inc, Cargill Inc, the JBS USA unit of Brazil's JBS SA and National Beef Packing Co were accused of colluding since Jan. 2015 to suppress the price of "fed" cattle, which is cattle raised specifically for beef production, with a goal of improving margins and profitability. The 104-page complaint by the Ranchers Cattlemen Action Legal Fund United Stockgrowers of America (R-CALF) and four cattle-feeding ranchers was filed in Chicago federal court, and seeks compensatory, punitive and triple damages. It resembles litigation in the same court in which companies, including Tyson and JBS, have been accused of conspiring to fix prices of broiler chickens and pork.

("JBS USA Finance") and JBS USA Food Company ("JBS USA Food"). The co-issuers are indirect wholly-owned subsidiaries of Brazil based JBS S.A. (Ba3 stable, the "parent"). The other ratings of JBS USA and the stable ratings outlook are unaffected.
Moody's Investors Service ("Moody's") comments that JBS S.A. (JBS) Ba3 corporate family, senior unsecured ratings of its wholly-owned subsidiary JBS Investments II Gmbh, and stable outlook remain unchanged following the company's announcement that it plans to issue $300 million in senior unsecured notes. This transaction will be an add-on to the $500 million notes due 2026 issued in October 2018 by JBS Investments II GmbH and fully guaranteed by JBS S.A. Net proceeds from the proposed issuance will be used primarily for liability management purposes by refinancing shorter maturity debt instruments, mostly represented by trade finance lines with Brazilian banks, and therefore there will be no impact on leverage.

This development should help JBS' Pilgrim's Pride Corp. division, which struggled in 2018.

Former Brazilian President Michel Temer has been formally charged with corruption on allegations of using a middleman to procure a suitcase full of cash from the world's largest meatpacker, JBS SA, federal prosecutors said on Thursday. Temer, who was president from 2016 until the end of 2018, was arrested last week as part of a separate investigation and accused of running a vast criminal enterprise that sought bribes for public works projects. In 2017, Rodrigo da Rocha Loures was caught on video by security cameras running out of a Sao Paulo restaurant carrying a bag with 500,000 reais ($128,166) in cash that prosecutors said was a bribe from the owners of JBS.

JBS said the price of pork in the United States, and more significantly the performance of its Pilgrim's Pride Co division, affected its operating performance and margins.
