SAO PAULO, June 2 (Reuters) - Centrais Elétricas Brasileiras SA on Thursday presented a request for review before the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission over a potential delisting of the Brazilian company's shares in New York for failing to file relevant financial information.

In a securities filing, the state-controlled utility known as Eletrobras said the New York Stock Exchange will set a date for presentation of the request. The SEC began procedures to delist Eletrobras' American depositary receipts after the company failed to file the so-called 20-F formulary before the deadline.
