In brief: Privatisation of Brazil’s Eletrobras could be moved forward

* Rodrigo Limp Nascimento, the CEO of Brazil’s state-controlled energy company, Eletrobras, has said that the company could be privatised by June, according to Reuters. The deadline is mid-August for Eletrobras to carry out a share offering based on its Q1 financial results, but Limp reportedly said that this should be done “in the shortest time possible”.
