Challenges for Successful Private Equity Investments in Brazil

Someone forgot to tell Brazil that we’re in the middle of the worst global recession in history.

Brazil is quickly becoming a political and economic leader in Latin America and the world. As with the rest of the global economy, Brazil entered into a recessionary period in 2009, but economic data that have been emerging from the Instituto Brasileiro de Geografia e Estatística (“IBGE”) increasingly point to a stabilization in the economy, further suggesting that the country has perhaps been less impacted than other markets in this global recession. After the 4.4% quarter-on-quarter decline in 4Q08 and a subsequent 3.5% decline in 1Q09, the country’s GDP reached US$417.8 billion at 2Q09, up 5.2% from the prior quarter, and projected GDP growth for the second half of 2009 is running at about 4.0% or even higher (see Figure 1).

Many economists point to Brazil’s changing trade patterns as an important shield from the global recession as this year, for the first time, China overtook the United States to become Brazil’s single biggest trading partner. In addition, as copper and oil prices have remained relatively strong, Brazil’s commodity-based economy continues to demonstrate strong expansionary growth, and consumer spending, up 2.1% in 2Q09, represented the 23rd consecutive quarter of growth. Any PhD in economics can tell you, in technical terms, that this is ginormous.
