SAOPAULO (Reuters) – Brazilian planemaker Embraer <EMBR3.SA> reported a third-quarter loss of $77.2 million (£60.3 million) on Tuesday affected by costs related to finalizing a $4.2 billion commercial passenger jets deal with Boeing <BA.N> which is expected to close by “early 2020.”

Embraer said deal costs came in at $34.8 million for the quarter.
