July 2 (Reuters) - The following is a table with rankings
for mergers and acquisitions activity in Brazil in the first
half, as compiled by Thomson Reuters on Wednesday.
 
    Mergers and acquisitions activity in Brazil will gain steam
by year-end as economic and political risks ease, helping
companies and private-equity firms looking for takeover targets
sharpen their focus on the country's long-term potential.
    Companies announced about $28.328 billion worth of deals in
Brazil in the year through June 30, up 34 percent from $21.006
billion a year earlier, a quarterly Thomson Reuters report on
M&A activity showed on Wednesday. About 221 deals were announced
in the first six months, down from 303 a year earlier.
