SAO PAULO Dec 14 (Reuters) - The board of embattled Brazilian investment bank Grupo BTG Pactual SA canceled about 19.9 million traded units as part of a stock buyback plan that is nearing completion.

In a securities filing on Monday, the bank reiterated a plan to repurchase up to 21.06 million units, a blend of voting and non-voting shares in BTG Pactual's investment banking and private equity divisions, or the equivalent of 10 percent of the stock in circulation.
