The São Paulo Court of Justice has ruled in favour of Brazilian reinsurer IRB Brasil Re in the public citizen suit filed against the company.

irb brasil reIt was decided that IRB proved “its economic capacity to face indemnities granted to shareholders” and, consequently, is no longer required to offer a guarantee in the amount of R$ 1 billion ($194 million).

It’s been an eventful year for the reinsurer, having announced in March that it had replaced its President and Chief Financial Officer amid confusion over a possible investment by Berkshire Hathaway. The announcement prompted its shares to fall 32%.
