CCR Drops as Higher Toll Scrapped Amid Protests: Sao Paulo Mover

June 24 (Bloomberg) -- CCR SA, which manages highways including the main route connecting Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, declined after Sao Paulo Governor Geraldo Alckmin scrapped a toll increase amid nationwide protests.

The shares fell 3.3 percent to 16.25 reais in Sao Paulo, the lowest closing level since July 2012. Ecorodovias Infraestrutura & Logistica SA, Brazil’s largest toll-road operator, dropped 2.7 percent to 14.50 reais. Arteris SA declined 3.5 percent to 18.15 reais. The Ibovespa benchmark gauge plunged 2.3 percent.

The state suspended the toll increase of as much as 6.5 percent that was set to take effect July 1, Alckmin told reporters in Sao Paulo today. The state had already canceled fare increases for buses, trains and subways that sparked the biggest street protests in almost two decades.

The state will suspend fines for delays in construction and fees it charges from the companies to offset the scrapped increases in fares, according to Alckmin. The total cost for the government will be 400 million reais ($178 million) in 2013, according to Transportation Secretary Saulo de Castro Abreu Filho.
