TABLE-Bradesco BBI, Itaú BBA top Brazil's M&A rankings

    SAO PAULO, Jan 9 (Reuters) - Brazilian conglomerates under
pressure from corruption probes and excessive debt were forced
to sell major assets last year, lifting the value of mergers and
acquisitions in the country 33 percent from the year before to
$61.77 billion. 
    Bigger transactions drove the increase, as the number of
deals fell to 544 in 2017 from 615 a year before. 
    The following tables show the ranking of the top 10 M&A
advisers in Brazil last year, by the value and number of deals.
