JBS "nearing" IPO
Brazilian meat group JBS is reportedly set to launch the initial public offering of its domestic unit JBS Foods "within weeks".
According to Reuters - which cited an unnamed source familiar with the matter - JBS hopes to raise BRL4bn (US$1.8bn) by listing its domestic food operations as early as next month.
