Deadline for Brazil review of Kroton-Estácio merger now July 27

SAO PAULO (Reuters) - Kroton Educacional SA (KROT3.SA) and Estácio Participações (ESTC3.SA), Brazil’s two largest for-profit education firms, said antitrust agency Cade extended by 30 days the analysis period for the companies’ proposed merger.

In a securities filing on Wednesday, the companies said the date for a final ruling was moved to July 27. Cade is not obliged to use all of the additional time and a ruling could come sooner, Kroton said.
