SAO PAULO, March 24 Cyrela Brazil Reality SA
is still seeing relevant levels of sales cancellation
in the first quarter, indicating that Brazil's largest
homebuilder continues to struggle with the impact of a
multi-year downturn in the construction industry.
In a conference call to discuss fourth-quarter results
Friday, Co-Chief Executive Officer Raphael Horn said Cyrela will
focus on lowering inventories as cancellations and lack of a
government response continue to hamper the sector.
