MMX Mineracao e Metalicos SA


Eike Batista, once Brazil's richest man, saw his fortune decimated in 2013. OGX, his oil company, filed for bankruptcy protection on Oct. 30. Other parts of his empire felt the aftereffects. The mining company he founded, MMX Mineracao & Metalicos SA (MMXM3), has been selling off assets to pay down debt. MMX's sales were up 38 percent last quarter, but losses at the iron ore miner have gotten worse.
