Brazilian stocks advanced on Thursday on the heels of rising prices of crude and U.S. equities, while shares of Ultrapar Participações SA soared after the fuel distributor announced a dividend payout. The benchmark Bovespa stock index was up 0.5 percent, outperforming other regional equity indexes, which were either flat or lower. Crude prices rose after release of an industry report suggesting U.S. crude stockpiles would soon begin to decline again, helping to lift shares of state-controlled oil company Petróleo Brasileiro SA.
RIO DE JANEIRO (Reuters) - Vitol, the world's biggest oil trader, and France's Total (TOTF.PA) are in talks to acquire Brazilian fuel distribution company Alesat Combustíveis SA, Brazilian newspaper Valor ...
State-controlled oil firm Petroleo Brasileiro SA will discuss alternatives for its liquefied petroleum gas distribution unit in a board meeting this week, one person with direct knowledge of the matter said. Petrobras, as the Brazilian company is known, had agreed to sell Liquigas Distribuidora SA to Ultrapar Participações SA for 2.8 billion reais ($859 million), but the deal was blocked by antitrust regulator CADE in February. Petrobras has officially said it wants to completely exit the LPG distribution business, but will consider options different than a formal sale process to strategic and financial investors.
