Americanas reassures banks with proposal of R$ 10 billion – 03/15/2023 – Mônica Bergamo
The proposal by the billionaire trio of shareholders to inject BRL 10 billion into Americanas eased the climate of war that prevailed between them and the company’s creditor banks. The values offered in the first negotiations reached R$ 7 billion.
Most of the financial institutions participating in the negotiations for the company’s recovery understood that the new amount indicates a way for them to reach a successful conclusion. But they want Jorge Paulo Lemann, Beto Sicupira and Marcel Telles to contribute more money to the deal.
The ideal figure would be around R$ 12 billion.
However, there is still no consensus. Itaú Unibanco, for example, is being tougher in conversations.

According to executives who participate in the negotiations, the bank would not accept less than an injection of R$ 15 billion in the business to endorse an agreement that avoids the bankruptcy of Americanas.
The successive international crises, such as that of Credit Suisse, increase the pressure for the conversations to gain pace, according to one of those participating in the negotiations.
Americanas owes a total of around R$26 billion to 12 banks. The largest creditors are Deutsche Bank, Bradesco, Santander Brasil, BTG Pactual, BV, Itaú Unibanco and Banco do Brasil.
