Marfrig SA, the debt-laden Brazilian meatpacker and
processed food producer, said free cash flow could end next year
between zero and negative 150 million reais ($70 million). The
company said in a securities filing on Monday that free cash
flow, or money available for distribution among all the
securities holders of a company, could end 2014 at around zero.
