SAO PAULO, Jan 5 (Reuters) - Companies announced $77.07 billion worth of
corporate takeovers in Brazil last year, the largest amount since 2011, a
Thomson Reuters report on M&A activity showed on Monday. Some 553 deals were
announced last year, down from 633 in 2013, according to the report.
    M&A activity should gain steam in coming months as a slumping currency and
lower asset prices prompted foreign companies and investment funds to spend
$33.1 billion on takeovers in Latin America's largest economy last quarter.
