SAO PAULO, July 19 (Reuters) - Brazilian reinsurer IRB Brasil Resseguros SA set its price per share at 88 reais in a secondary share offering late on Thursday, two sources with knowledge of the matter said.

The Brazilian government and state-controlled insurance company BB Seguros, both shareholders in IRB, raised 7.4 billion reais ($1.99 billion) in the share offering which is part of a wider effort by President Jair Bolsonaro's government to unload state-owned assets.
