* The current accord between the parners gives both sides the right to buyout the other after the 10th and 15th year from the formation of Raizen

* But the companies are interested in closing a new deal that will more clearly define the terms and ownership stakes of Raizen going forward

* The paper did not name its sources for the story

* It said both sides were in agreement of the eventual ownership breakdown of the company but were merely defining how it would be run under the new agreement
