Brazil M&A update2Foreign directinvestment to reachrecord US$70 billionin 2013Brazil is the third most attractiveinvestment destination by valueglobally with only China and theUS attracting a higher proportion ofinbound foreign direct investment (FDI).GDP growth is forecast to exceed3% in 2013 (see Figure 1). Thedomestic economic stimulusimplemented during 2012 will supporthigher growth. Real interest rates arecurrently close to historical lows, retailsales are increasing, unemployment islow by Brazilian standards and industrialand business confidence is rising.Higher growth means Brazil remainsattractive for inflows of FDI. FDI areexpected to increase from an estimatedUS$64 billion in 2012 to US$70 billion in2013 and US$75 billion in 2014(see Figure 2).

Brazil M&A update3Fifth largestconsumer marketglobally by 2020By 2020 Brazil is forecast to be thefifth largest consumer market in theworld with household consumptionof US$1.8 trillion. Foreign companiesare attracted to consumers’discretionary spending power(see Figures 3 and 4). The middleclass has grown to around 133million people in 2014 with 85% ofthe population living in urban areas.Brazilian consumers are optimisticabout the outlook for their householdincome, and fiscal initiatives have beentargeted to support consumption.Foreign brands are taking advantageof the growth in spending on areassuch as alcohol, technology andfashion. For example, UK drinksgiant Diageo acquired the leadingpremium cachaça brand Ypióca forUS$455 million in 2012. Cachaça is thelargest spirits category in Brazil and theacquisition gives Diageo a platform forthe sale of premium international spiritsbrands in Brazil.MergersAlliance2013Brazil is benefitingfrom high consumerspending11.1%2004 2005 20072006 2008 2009 2010 2011 20123.1%6.4%13.6%9.9%6.8%12.2%6.6%8.0%Average growth rateFigure 4: Broad retail sales % YoYSource: Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics10.2USA JapanChina Germany Brazil France UK Italy22.214.171.124.8 1.6 1.5 1.4Figure 3: Global consumer marketin 2020 US$ trillionSource: Exame Magazine and McKinseyAs incomes have risen, consumers arealso spending more on buying servicessuch as education and healthcare.This is leading to M&A.- H.I.G.

4Brazil M&A updateForeign companieswill bid in 2013infrastructureconcession auctionsBottlenecks drivingmajor infrastructurespendThe 2014 FIFA World Cup and 2016Summer Olympic Games are actingas a catalyst for public and privateinvestment to upgrade Brazil’sinfrastructure, which is runningat overcapacity and slowingeconomic growth.The Government will spendUS$33 billion on preparations tohost the World Cup and Olympicsincluding building stadiums, watersports venues, hotels, roads,subways and airports. This will besupplemented by investment from thecorporate sector in the supply chainrelated to the events.Brazil is auctioning concessions formajor airports, railways and toll roads.Auctions, which will typically be wonon price, are open to internationalcompetition. Foreign corporates areattracted to companies withconcessions. For example, in 2012US-based Brookfield Infrastructureestablished a joint venture with AbertisInfraestructuras to acquire a majoritystake in Arteris for US$1.7 billion.Arteris is one of the largest ownersand operators of toll road concessionsin BrazilForeign corporates are using theirtechnical expertise to supplementBrazil’s less mature infrastructurecapabilities.

Brazil’s autosales hit a record high in 2012, growingby over 6% from 2011 to reach over3.6 million vehicles (excluding trucksand buses).Demand is being boosted by reducedindustrial products tax and an increasein financed car purchases.

6Brazil M&A updateMergersAlliance2013BroadSpan is the Brazilian partnerof Mergers Alliance. LeonardoAntunes, BroadSpan’s ManagingDirector has completed deals,capital raising and projectfinance worth over US$15 billion in South America.He discusses M&A trends and provides insightsinto how foreign companies are entering Brazil.BroadSpan is helping a range of investors accessopportunities in BrazilWe are currently working with both public and privateforeign companies, as well as private equity whorecognise that they need to supplement their expertisewith local specialists who have significant strategic andtransaction experience. Most inbound interest is currentlycoming from the US, UK, France and Spain.M&A activity is focused on three key areasCompanies based in the low growth developedeconomies are being forced to look to faster growingcountries like Brazil for opportunities. Developedeconomies have mature industrial sectors, sophisticatedbusiness services providers and leading consumerbrands. Companies in these areas are taking advantageof the scale of investment being made across Brazil’sinfrastructure and energy supply chain, and the spendingpower of the rapidly increasing middle class. This is beingreflected in M&A activity (see page 8).While the mega deals grab the headlines, there is a lot ofactivity by large and mid-sized foreign players acquiringsmaller niche players such UK-based Intertek, whichrecently acquired an 85% stake in Brazilian toy andconsumer products testing laboratory E-Test forUS$9.9 million.Using a local advisor is critical to developing andimplementing the right market entry strategyThe operating environment for businesses in Brazil iscomplex and poor advice will lead to costly delays andmissed opportunities. It’s vital that companies work with alocal advisor who is able to use their market insight andpersonal relationships with companies and thegovernment to help formulate the right entrystrategy, use their expertise to evaluate the best localopportunities and deliver a transaction successfully.Potential acquirers need to consider issuesspecific to BrazilAround 90% of businesses in Brazil are family-ownedand many will not have considered an exit strategy.This presents challenges to potential overseas acquirers.It is common for these businesses to maintain two setsof books and for results to be unaudited. High taxesbased on revenue rather than profit mean owner-managers are careful about what they declare to thetax authorities. But this often creates a valuation gapwith an overseas buyer because of the differencebetween the declared profit and the actual profit.BroadSpan has significant experience of creatingdeal structures which recognise fair value andmeet the governance standards demandedby overseas buyers.Different sectors have specific legislationand tax rulesForeign corporates need to be aware of the specificrequirements associated with operating in Brazil whichgovern a range of issues including the level of foreignownership permitted, local content and licensingrequirements and taxation and employment practices.For example, Brazil has multiple taxation regimes withdifferent levels of taxing authorities. Tax laws changefrequently, so it’s not unusual for companies andtheir advisors to work with more than one tax specialist.The status of employees can also raise issues, especiallyin the business services sector and consulting inparticular. For example, to reduce employment taxesmany employees in the service sector are contractors butif an acquirer wants to make employees permanent post-deal, this may trigger historic payroll tax and socialsecurity liabilities (see Case study on page 7).To protect overseas acquirers from claims, Sale &Purchase Agreements tend to include a higher numberof indemnification clauses than an overseas acquirermight be used to.A perspective on M&A trends and market entry strategies
7Brazil M&A updateMergersAlliance2013Undertaking rigorous due diligence is especiallyimportant in BrazilWe always try to identify and qualify potential issues forour clients in advance of commencing full diligence toavoid surprises and gain early visibility of those areaswhich may have a significant impact on the value andthe transaction process.Should a client wish to proceed and given the issuesdiscussed earlier, due diligence is critical and can uncoverissues such as liabilities associated with existing litigationand potential claims, which affect the valuation of a targetand potentially negotiations.Ensure the acquisition structure is tax efficientAcquirers need to engage early with tax and legalspecialists to ensure a transaction is structured torepatriate dividends and earnings in the most tax efficientway possible. Brazil has signed double tax treaties withonly a handful of countries and so holding companies andinvestment vehicles are often located in jurisdictionslike the Netherlands.New pre-merger review requirement affectstransaction planningNew competition laws introduced in 2012 are potentially asignificant hurdle for cross-border transactions. Under theprevious notification process, transactions could becompleted before CADE (Administrative Council forEconomic Defense) had given its approval. Now reportabletransactions (one party has turnover in Brazil ofapproximately US$400 million and the other US$40 million)need to receive CADE’s approval before a transaction cancomplete. The waiting period for a reportable transactionto be reviewed can be up to 330 days. As yet there isno fast track process, although to date “non-complex”transactions have been cleared in around 18 days.Although this creates uncertainty for the vendor andacquirer, the new process removes the possibility ofpost-merger remedial action.The new notification and approvals process needs tobe factored into the timetable planning for a transaction,especially as the information required in a notificationform for a complex transaction is considerable.Companies prefer to create joint ventures oracquire a majority positionMost companies prefer to enter the market via a jointventure or through a majority stake acquisition. Dealstructures range from 50% to 80% and can include a pathto full ownership over a two to four year period. The scaleof a foreign company’s first acquisition varies with somepreferring to make smaller acquisitions in order tounderstand the market better before making a largermove. Our experience suggests that a staggeredapproach to full ownership helps to align the interestsof a company’s founder or shareholders.Outlook for foreign investors over the next12 months is positiveThe upcoming World Cup and Olympics, rising purchasingpower of the middle class and range of government-supported growth measures means Brazil has theattention of global corporates and investors looking forstrategic growth. This will drive increasing competition forhigh quality assets and stimulate inbound, outbound anddomestic M&A.Case study: Accenture’s acquisition of RiskControlBroadSpan advised RiskControl, a privately heldrisk consulting company based in Rio de Janeiro,on its recent sale to US consulting and technologyservices company Accenture.Reason for acquisitionThe acquisition complemented and expandedAccenture’s risk service in the rapidly growingBrazilian market. It also gave Accenture access to theend-to-end software tool RiskControl, a softwareplatform that helps companies manage, monitor andevaluate risks throughout their business.How the deal was transactedBroadSpan navigated through complex deal structureswhich addressed issues associated with contingentworkers including contractors and permanentemployees in order to maximize RiskControls value.

Foreign acquirers want to gainaccess to rising consumer spending vialeading brands. M&A levels will remainstrong in these sectors in 2013.Inbound investment M&A has beencharacterised by the acquisition ofmajority and minority stakes, as wellas full acquisitions (see Figure 9).

9Brazil M&A updateBy 2020, Brazil is aiming to be one of the world’stop five oil producers. One third of global reservesdiscovered in the last five years have been foundin Brazil, including the major find in the offshoredeepwater “pre-salt” layers.Whilst legislation ensures that there will be asignificant amount of local content, Brazil needs theexpertise of international corporates to achieve itsproduction targets. This means there are significantopportunities for foreign producers and suppliers.Global majors working alongside sector giantPetrobrasState-backed Petrobras accounts for around 90%of Brazil’s total oil & gas production. It benefits fromregulatory advantages over other independent Brazilianand foreign producers such as the requirement that itwill be the operator on all pre-salt oil fields.Global oil & gas majors are committed to Brazil witharound 40 companies including Chevron, BG, BP,Shell, Eni, Statoil, Total and ExxonMobil active in theupstream market.US$400 billion investment programme underwayPetrobras is currently investing US$225 billion across thesupply chain to meet its goal of doubling production by2020. Major investment is also being made by leadingindependent producers OGX, Cosan and Queiroz Galvãoin their exploration and production capabilities.The Round 11 Auctions to be held in May 2013 (whichwill include 289 exploration blocks) and Pre-Salt and ShaleGas bidding rounds later in the year will increase thepenetration of foreign majors, increase investment andboost M&A. Leading tier 1 suppliers like GE, Akerand Cameron have established a local presence andare positioning themselves to win a share of the spend.Market entry strategies influenced by localregulationsPetrobras approved suppliers’ register: Companiesawarded contracts and orders directly from Petrobras arechosen from the company’s supplier Approval Register.Acquisitions and joint ventures are often the easiest wayto enter the register. There are over 5,500 companieson Petrobras’ supplier register so significant M&Aopportunities exist. For example, in 2011 UK-basedHydrasun acquired Remaq Ltda, a Brazil-based providerof flexible hose assemblies which had a proven recordwith Petrobras.Local content regulations: Goods and services used inthe oil & gas industry must have a significant level of “localcontent”. Joint ventures enable international companiesto ensure that they meet this requirement. For example,French oil service company Technip and Brazilian servicesprovider Odebrecht agreed a joint venture which won afive-year contract estimated to be worth US$1 billion tosupply two pipeline installation ships to Petrobras.Opportunity Lead supplier Support supplierOffshore oil drilling facilities needconstant supplies during andafter constructionPetrobras estimates it will need235 support vessels by 2020Brazil’s Wilson Sons provides serviceswithin shipbuilding and shipping.
