Brazil’s Banco Cruzeiro do Sul is in discussions about “strategic alternatives for its businesses,” it says. Nothing binding has come out of any discussions. As with other mid-sized Brazilian lenders, the bank has seen debt funding become a bit more complicated, particularly in the international markets. Moody’s lowered Cruzeiro to B2 from Baa3 with a negative outlook in April. BTG Pactual, which took over troubled lender Panamericano in 2010, has been floated as a possible buyer.
