Brazilian energy market attractive for investment

Mar 12, 1997 01:00 AM

Mar. 4, 1997 A study on the prospects of the Brazilian electric sector concludes that the market is promising for investors with profits to increase by 22,3 % over the next five years, or 39,3% if excluded the Eletrobras holding, compared with 18,6 % in Chile, or 17,2 % if excluded Enersis. Brazil needs to attract resources of $ 3 bn annually to cover half of the needed power generating investments over the next three years, in order to meet the increasing demand. The distribution area has an attractive return on the investments, and the same assurance must be given to the generating and transportation areas. There is a 16 % average loss in the energy, compared with 8,5% in Chile. Slums represent only 2 %-3 % of the losses from the Rio de Janeiro based distributors Light and Cerj, recently privatised, while the largest loss comes from the corporate segment (6 % - 9 %). The electric companies slated for privatisation are Light to sell off a 28, 6 % stake held by Eletrobras; Cemig to sell 14,4 % in 1997; Cesp to sell 32,8 %; Copel 21 % between 1997 - 2000; CPFL 68,6 % in the 2nd half of 1997; Eletropaulo 47,6 % in the 2nd half of 1997; and 45,1 % on Eletrobras to be privatised in 1997/1998.
