The retailer, which is headquartered in Chile and has operations throughout South America, is controlled by Chile's Paulmann family.

Improved regional economic prospects, especially in Argentina, Brazil and Peru, will also help buttress Cencosud's business units, it said.

Cencosud said it expects adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) margin of between 7.3 and 7.6 percent in 2017 and to invest some $2.5 billion over the next four years.

Cencosud runs the Jumbo supermarkets, Paris department store and Easy home improvement store brands, among others, and has significant operations in Chile and Argentina, with a presence in Brazil, Peru, and Colombia.
