rankings for Brazil in terms of deal value and number of deals)
    SAO PAULO, April 2 (Reuters) - The value of mergers and acquisitions in
Brazil in the first quarter slipped to its lowest in two years, as slumping
confidence and an economic downturn prevented buyers and sellers from finalizing
deals in Latin America's largest economy.
    In the year through March 31, companies showed $8.51 billion worth of
corporate takeovers in Brazil, according to a Thomson Reuters report on M&A
released on Thursday. Some 122 deals were announced in the first quarter, up
from 119 a year earlier.
