Tools Available for PE & VC Players in the Upcoming Privatization Cycle in Brazil

Amongst the main plans of the new Brazilian Government for the coming years is the privatization a portion of the 1381 federal Government owned/controlled companies, or at least some of their businesses (through the disposal of non-core assets, sale of business units, etc).

The main drivers of this plan are: (i) reducing the size of the state, towards a more liberal business environment; (ii) reducing Brazil’s primary deficit that closed at approx. BRL120.3 billion in 20182; and (iii) efficiency gains in managing the State by focusing on matters where State intervention is vital.
