SAO PAULO, May 24 (Reuters) - Brazilian card payment processor Cielo CIEL3.SA has canceled net profit guidance for 2019 it published in January without releasing any new guidance, the company said in a securities filing on Friday.
In January Cielo said it expected net profit in 2019 of between 2.3 billion and 2.6 billion reais ($646.56 million). Cielo said the decision to cancel the guidance reflects the competitive environment it is facing in Brazil, where many new entrants have started business recently.
