Aracruz was once the biggest producer of eucalyptus tree pulp. It reported a loss of more than $2 billion in December 2008 due to currency-derivatives trades that involved Isac Zagury, the company’s CFO (chief financial officer).

It is very likely that shareholders knew about the risky investment, but weren’t complaining when money was made.
