SAO PAULO Feb 3 BM&FBovespa SA,
Brazil's sole financial exchange, is considering passing along
to clients part of the cost savings from the acquisition of
rival clearinghouse Cetip SA Mercados Organizados.
In a Friday securities filing, BM&FBovespa said the matter
was being discussed preliminarily and no decision had been made.
Newspaper Valor Econômico said earlier in the day, citing an
investor letter from a fund manager, that BM&FBovespa could
share up to 30 percent of the cost savings from Cetip's
acquisition with clients.
