With Brazil's economy expected to grow at around 7% this year and borrowing costs declining, Brazilian companies are seeking financing for their expansion plans. MMX, a leading metals and mining company, hopes to raise $2.2 billion in a new share sale. Taking advantage of lower borrowing costs, the Brazilian government in September reopened its due 2041 global bonds, selling an additional $500 million to yield 5.202%. There were expectations that the government would sell another $50 million to Asian investors under the same terms. Brazil had last come to market in July, with an $825 million issue that yielded 4.547%, the lowest-ever yield for Brazilian paper. Burger King, the world's second-largest fast food chain, has become the latest international acquisition by Brazilian investors.
