M&A in Brazil—A Canadian Perspective

Brazil is a nation transformed. This South American giant’s growth is unique among other emerging nations for its wealth of food, energy and mining commodities.

Brazil’s unfulfilled domestic demand, hyper growth potential and globally competitive returns have spurred M&A action, both inbound and outbound, during the past decade. However, only a select group of Canadians have been actively deal-making with Brazilians.

Rather than dwell on the reasons and implications of historic precedent, PwC’s perspective is that Canadians are well-positioned to share in Brazil’s growth. A number of emerging deal drivers suggest that transacting with Brazil will be a promising new frontier for Canadian dealmakers.

The aim of this publication is twofold—to provide insight into Brazil, and to share our view on opportunities in Brazil for Canadians.
