    Brazil seeks to renegotiate Gripen financing plan - IHS Jane's 360

    Brazil is reportedly seeking to restructure its financing agreements with Sweden over the procurement of Saab Gripen aircraft, as the South American country's defence budget is hit by austerity cuts.

    According to press reports, Brazilian leader President Dilma Rousseff has requested an amendment to the financing arrangement with the Swedish Export Credit Corporation (SEK) to lower the interest rates on the loans for the aircraft. The previously agreed rates were frozen at the time the contract was signed.

    Brazil announced earlier this month that it was cutting the amount it would be borrowing from SEK from BRL1 billion (USD324 million) to BRL200 million for the first disbursement for the procurement. By cutting the interest rates on the finance package, Brazilian finance minister Joaquim Levy argues that the country will be able to reduce the cost of procurement by BRL1 billion over 25 years.

    The financing deal was expected to be either signed off or completed on 24 June - eight months after the signing of the aircraft contract - but there was no sign of an announcement about the financing by 25 June, with the deadline expected to have been postponed to allow for further discussions. An SEK spokesperson had so far not responded to a request for comment.

    Should the deal be changed, it is understood that the amended contract and financial rates would need to be approved by the Swedish parliament, which is expected to go into summer recess shortly. As well, negotiations - and potentially the entire selection - may have to be restarted, delaying the programme further.

    A Saab spokesperson declined to comment on the matter, claiming the discussions were between the national authorities and did not involve the company.

    Deliveries of the Gripen are expected to begin in 2019, with 36 aircraft to be delivered by 2024. Brazilian requirements call for a total of 108 new-generation fighters to replace the aging Northrop F-5EM/FM Tiger II and Embraer A-1M fighters as well as the now retired Dassault Mirage 2000C/Ds in air force service. The Brazilian Navy has a long-term requirement for 48 fighters based on the Gripen E/F in two batches of 24 each.

    Recession and weakening currency is the culprit.
