Jan 2 (Reuters) - The following is a table with rankings for
merger-and- acquisition activity in Brazil last year, as
compiled by Thomson Reuters on Thursday. 
    In 2013, companies announced $74.430 billion worth of deals
in Brazil, up about 5.7 percent from $70.40 billion a year
earlier, according to the Thomson Reuters quarterly report on
M&A. In 2011, there were $80.59 billion in deals, and in 2010,
there were $164.29 billion. 
    In terms of the number of deals, 2013 was not that favorable
for M&A bankers, the report showed. About 611 deals were
announced last year, down from 823 in 2012. Numbers are
expressed in U.S. dollars, unless specified.
