SAO PAULO Dec 28 (Reuters) - Shareholders in Brazilian state-controlled power utility Centraios Elétricas Brasileiras SA decided on Monday to proceed with the sale of a electricity distribution company in the state of Goais while delaying the sale of another six distribution companies and plans to inject cash into them.

In a securities filing, the company known as Eletrobras said the decisions were made following a request by the federal government, the utility's controlling shareholder. (Reporting by Guillermo Parra-Bernal; Editing by Cynthia Osterman)
