SAO PAULO, Feb 3 (Reuters) - Movida Participações SA has agreed to lower the bottom end of a suggested price range for its initial public offering slated to price on Monday, a sign demand for the Brazilian car rental company’s shares is holding up at such levels, five people with direct knowledge of the decision said.
