If we go to capitalization looking for elimination of hydrological risk, or if we go to a company sales program, “said Ferreira Jr., during the 5th Annual Forum of Corporates Brasil 2019 promoted by the credit rating agency Fitch Ratings in São Paulo.

If the decision comes out within the prescribed timeframe, the estimate is that Eletrobras goes to private initiative later this year or at the beginning of 2020, according to the president’s information. During pronation, Ferreira Jr. proved favorable to the capitalization process as a way to strengthen the State and to face the necessary investments in the sector.

The sale must be carried out in the first half of this year.
