A Bloomberg News acaba de publicar uma matéria com o sugestivo título "Bilionário Eike Batista está vendendo jatinho enquanto sua fortuna encolhe". Mas a matéria não fala apenas da venda do jatinho que Sérgio Cabral já adorou usar.
Vejamos os números que a Bloomberg informou:
1) a fortuna de Eike Batista encolheu US$ 27 bilhões que vale algo em torno de 55 billhões de reais.
2) a fortuna de Eike Batista vale hoje US$ 6,8 bilhões, um valor bem distante dos US$ 34,5 bilhões de um ano atrás.
3) por causa do encolhimento de sua fortuna, Eike Batista que já foi o sétimo homem mais rico do mundo ocupa hoje ocupa apenas o posto centésimo nonagésimo primeiro mais rico (ou seja caiu de 7 para 191!).
Mas as más notícas para a fortuna de Eike não param por ai, pois a Bloomberg ainda notou que Batista ainda poderá ter que entrar com mais 1 bilhão de dólares na OG(X).
Enfim, Eike Batista ainda continua bilionário, mas num ritmo descendente.
Billionaire Eike Batista Selling Jet as Fortune Shrinks
By Juan Pablo Spinetto
Eike Batista, the Brazilian billionaire whose wealth shrank more than $27 billion since early last year, put one of his private jets on sale as the tycoon cuts costs and divests assets.
The Embraer Legacy 600, registration number PR-AVX, is listed for sale on aviation publication Controller. The plane’s interior features antique nickel plating and taupe carpets, wicker-colored leather seats and cabinetry finished in satin, according to the listing, which didn’t give an asking price.

Batista is selling stakes in his companies and scaling back projects after missed operational and financial targets triggered a selloff that cost him the mantle of Brazil’s richest person. Oil unit OGX Petroleo & Gas Participacoes SA may need to raise $1 billion from Batista through a put option to cover spending next year, Standard & Poor’s said last month while cutting the company’s credit rating to B- from B.
EBX Group Co., the holding company for most of Batista’s assets, and Avjet Trading Inc., the company given as contact on the posting, both declined to comment.
The plane, manufactured in 2008, totaled 1,419 hours of flying, according to Controller’s website. The aircraft seats 13 passengers and includes a conference and dining area, a three-place divan and a fully equipped galley, it said.
Embraer SA (EMBR3), Brazil’s biggest aircraft maker, delivered over 200 Legacy 600 and 650 planes, which can fly non-stop from Hamburg to Dubai. The plane has a listing price of $26 million, according to Embraer. Batista wants to sell the jet quickly and has an asking price of $14 million, Veja magazine reported May 18, without saying where it got the information.
Brazil’s richest person when his wealth peaked at $34.5 billion in March last year, Batista is now worth $6.8 billion on the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, making him the world’s 191st richest individual.
