April 1 (Reuters) - The following is a table with rankings
for merger and acquisition activity in Brazil in the first
quarter, as compiled by Thomson Reuters on Tuesday.
 
    Mergers and acquisitions activity in Brazil had an
encouraging start to the year, as buyers took advantage of a
weaker currency and cheaper valuations to clinch deals in Latin
America's largest economy.
    Companies announced about $14.21 billion worth of deals in
Brazil during the first quarter, up from $5.12 billion a year
earlier, according to a quarterly Thomson Reuters report on M&A
activity released on Tuesday. 
    About 108 deals were announced in the past three months,
down from 132 a year ago.
