Americanas’ trio of key shareholders have come out publicly for the first time since a billion-dollar hole in the company’s finances led it to enter judicial recovery to try not to go bankrupt.

Entrepreneurs Jorge Paulo Lemann, Marcel Telles and Carlos Alberto Sicupira released a joint statement on Sunday (22/1) in which they deny being aware of the problem and say they would not allow an accounting maneuver or fraud to distort results of the company, something that is being investigated.

“Our work has always been based on ethical and legal rigor over the decades,” they said.

They also said that the company has been managed for the last several decades by executives “considered to be qualified and of impeccable reputation” and that the banks with which Americanas or PwC, the consultancy firm responsible for auditing the company’s most recent financial statements, did business. highlighted irregularities.
