Novozymes Gains on Brazil Enzyme Speculation: Copenhagen Mover

May 24 (Bloomberg) -- Novozymes A/S, the world’s largest maker of enzymes, traded at the highest price in a month in Copenhagen on speculation it will boost sales in Brazil.

Novozymes rose as much as 3 percent to 159.20 kroner, the highest since April 24. The stock advanced 2.9 kroner, or 1.9 percent, to 157.50 kroner at 10:01 a.m. in the Danish capital.

Graal Investimentos SA’s biofuel unit said yesterday it will build five plants in Brazil to produce ethanol from sugar-cane residues. Bagsvaerd, Denmark-based Novozymes said it will also build new facilities in the South American country because it will supply the five plants with enzymes.

Novozymes reported on April 25 a 9 percent decline in first-quarter sales, measured in local currencies, in part because its ethanol-producing clients used fewer enzymes.
