* Moody's Upgrades Bond Rating to 'B3' on Improved Governance
-------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has upgraded Belize's government bond
ratings to B3 from Caa1 to reflect the improvement in debt metrics
over the past couple of years, a marginal improvement in
governance, and the expectation that bilateral and multilateral
financing will continue providing sufficient support to help
mitigate the negative impact of the global crisis.  The outlook is
stable.

"Since the restructuring of commercial external obligations in
early 2007, Belize's fiscal position and external debt maturity
profile have improved," said Moody's Vice President - Senior
Analyst Alessandra Alecci.  "While this has been in large part the
result of the oil windfall, reduced interest obligations and
generous bilateral grants, the government has also exercised a
degree of fiscal constraint."

She said such fiscal responsibility has been the result of a
policy-driven adherence to a medium-term macroeconomic program
intended to restore debt sustainability and is also due to the
government's borrowing constraint, particularly in the
international capital markets given the recent restructuring and
the ongoing crisis.

"Moody's expects that the current crisis will affect Belize's key
industries, including tourism, agriculture and oil," said Alecci.
"While this, in turn, will create challenges for both the fiscal
and external accounts, the fact that the government has secured
bilateral and multilateral financing alleviates concerns about
liquidity."

She said a situation in which the government would find itself on
the brink of default as occurred in 2006 is unlikely over the next
12 months.

"There are a number of structural issues that are likely to
persist in the years to come, thus limiting the scope for further
upgrades," said Alecci.  "Belize's institutions are weak, as
evidenced by the few checks and balances that limited the
aggressive fiscal policies and heavy borrowing during the 1999 to
2004 period, which eventually led to a forced debt restructuring."
In addition, she said, though declining, the size of the public
debt, most of which is denominated in foreign currency, is still
very large relative to the resources available to service it,
leaving policymakers with limited adjustment options in the face
of the number of shocks that can affect Belize, whether domestic,
external or weather-related.

"Fiscal policies will need to remain very tight in the medium term
in order to limit the potential for liquidity problems given the
economy's small size, high degree of openness and limited funding
options," said Alecci.  "A B3 rating incorporates these factors
and the ensuing credit risks."

In a related rating action, the foreign currency country ceiling
for bonds was upgraded to B1 from B2.  All other ratings remain
unchanged and the outlook on all ratings is stable.

Moody's last rating action with respect to the Government of
Belize occurred on February 13, 2007 when the government bond
ratings were raised to Caa1 from Caa3.

SWISS RE: To Close Bermuda Office in June to Cut Cost
-----------------------------------------------------
Swiss Re will close its Bermuda office in June this year as the
company seeks to cut cost, Jonathan Kent of The Royal Gazette
reports, citing Swiss Re spokeswoman Alayna Tagariello.  The
report relates that five employees at the office will lose their
jobs in the process.

"We are focused on achieving cost efficiences.  Any business going
through our Bermuda office can be handled through other offices,"
Ms. Tagariello was quoted by the report as saying.

According to the report, Swiss Re's operations is located on the
fourth floor of Mintflower Place on Par-la-Ville Road, and is
headed by Thomas Coffey.

The Gazette says Swiss Re is going through an uncertain time.
The report recounts Swiss newspaper Sonntag reported over the
weekend that the company's chief executive officer Jacques Aigrain
could be replaced as early as next month.

The Gazette relates Swiss Re's foray into trading securities such
as credit-default swaps led to more than US$5 billion of
writedowns last year, eroding capital and reducing its market
value by a third in 2008.

The company's shares fell 38% in the space of two days, as it
announced a loss ofUS$850 million for 2008, the report says.

XL CAPITAL: Posts US$2.63BB Net Loss for Year Ended Dec. 31 2008
----------------------------------------------------------------
XL Capital Ltd reported fourth quarter and full year 2008 results.

The net loss for the quarter ended December 31, 2008 was
US$1.43 billion, or US$4.36 per ordinary share, compared with a
net loss of US$1.22 billion, or US$6.88 per ordinary share, for
the quarter ended December 31, 2007.

Operating Income for the quarter ended December 31, 2008 was
US$189.5 million, or US$0.58 per ordinary share, compared with
US$98.0 million, or US$0.55 per ordinary share, for the quarter
ended December 31, 2007.  Return on Ordinary Shareholders' Equity,
based on Operating Income, was 12.4% for the quarter and 12.0% for
the full year.

Net loss for the quarter ended December 31, 2008 was largely
driven by a US$990 million non-cash charge for the partial
impairment of goodwill and other than temporary impairments of
US$608.5 million, which includes an investment portfolio
restructuring charge of US$400.0 million.  The net loss for the
quarter ended December 31, 2007 included US$416.3 million for
other than temporary impairments primarily related to
deterioration in structured credit assets.  Also included in the
quarter ended December 31, 2008 were US$214.2 million of net
losses from investment fund affiliates, in line with the company's
pre-announcement in December 2008, compared to net income of
US$70.6 million in the quarter ended December 31, 2007.  The net
loss for the quarter ended December 31, 2007 included charges of
US$1.05 billion related to the company's investment in, and
certain reinsurance and other agreements with, Syncora.

For the twelve months ended December 31, 2008, the net loss was
US$2.63 billion, or US$11.02 per ordinary share, compared with net
income of US$206.4 million, or US$1.15 per ordinary share, for the
twelve months ended December 31, 2007.

Operating Income for the twelve months ended December 31, 2008,
was US$840.3 million, or US$3.51 per ordinary share, as compared
with US$1.73 billion, or US$9.61 per ordinary share, for the
twelve months ended December 31, 2007.

Return on ordinary shareholders' equity, based on Operating Income
was 12.0% and 18.6% for the twelve months ended December 31, 2008
and 2007, respectively.

   P&C Operations
   ==============

P&C Operations gross premiums written for the quarter ended
December 31, 2008 included US$1,077.8 million from the Insurance
segment and US$104.5 million from the Reinsurance segment compared
with US$1,267.6 million and US$138.0 million, respectively, in the
fourth quarter of 2007.  The loss ratio for the fourth quarter of
2008 was 58.0% with a combined ratio of 89.4% as compared to 62.0%
and 93.3%, respectively, in the fourth quarter of 2007.  The
results for the current quarter benefited from favorable prior
year development of US$268.3 million as compared with favorable
prior year development of US$92.6 million in the fourth quarter of
2007.

Commenting on the results of the P&C Operations for the quarter
Mr. McGavick said, "We continued to have strong underwriting
performances from both our insurance and reinsurance segments.
Our combined ratio of 89.4% for the quarter is 4 points better
than the fourth quarter of 2007 and is a testament to our
excellent underwriting over a number of years.  We understand the
risks we write and notably our revised estimates for Hurricanes
Ike and Gustav are at the mid-point of our original range."

   Life Operations & Other Financial Lines
   =======================================

The Life Operations & Other Financial Lines segments contributed
US$27.1 million and US$0.5 million, respectively, in the fourth
quarter of 2008, compared with contributions of US$4.0 million and
US$15.7 million, respectively, in the fourth quarter of 2007.  The
fourth quarter 2007 contribution from the Life Operations segment
included a US$25.4 million increase in policy benefit reserves
with respect to certain novated blocks of US-based term-life
mortality reinsurance business.

Mr. McGavick said, "During the fourth quarter of 2008, we sold the
renewal rights for our Life, Accident and Health business, which
is a small block, and we continue to explore various strategic
options for the annuity book, the mortality and critical illness
book and for our US life company."

   Investments and Other Operations
   ================================

Net investment income was US$393.1 million for the quarter as
compared to US$560.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2007.  The
decrease in net investment income was driven by a decrease in net
investment income from both the company's P&C and Other Financial
Lines Operations.

The net investment income from P&C operations, excluding
investment income from structured products, was US$275.6 million
for the quarter as compared to US$326.8 million in the fourth
quarter of 2007.  Net investment income from P&C structured
products in the fourth quarter of 2008 was US$24.1 million as
compared to US$33.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2007.  Both
reductions were caused principally by declines in prevailing U.S.
interest rates, along with higher allocations to lower yielding US
Treasuries, Agencies and cash.

The net investment income from the Other Financial Lines segment
was US$8.2 million for the fourth quarter 2008 compared to US$99.2
million for the fourth quarter of 2007.  The decrease of US$91.1
million results from the redemption of US$4 billion of Guaranteed
Investment Contracts and US$1.2 billion of maturing funding
agreements during the year.  There was a corresponding decrease in
the interest expense related to these contracts.

For the Life Operations segment, investment income was US$85.2
million in the fourth quarter of 2008 as compared to US$101.4
million in the fourth quarter of 2007.  This movement was caused
largely by foreign exchange movements arising from the stronger US
Dollar against Sterling in particular.

Total net realized losses on investments were US$568.9 million for
the fourth quarter of 2008 as compared to US$470.6 million in the
fourth quarter of 2007.  The loss for the fourth quarter of 2008
included realized gains on securities sales of US$39.6 million and
other than temporary impairments of US$608.5 million which
included the investment portfolio restructuring charge of US$400
million.  The realized loss in the fourth quarter of 2007
comprised other than temporary impairments of US$416.3 million and
realized losses on securities sales of US$54.3 million.

The fourth quarter of 2008 includes US$214.2 million of net losses
from investment fund affiliates, compared to net income of US$70.6
million in the quarter ended December 31, 2007.  The principal
driver was a negative quarterly return of 12.5% on the Company's
alternative portfolio which was due to the extremely difficult
market conditions for hedge funds in September, October and
November.

Net loss from operating affiliates, was US$5.6 million as compared
to a loss of US$1.20 billion in the fourth quarter of 2007.  The
net loss from operating affiliates in 2007 included a charge of
US$1.05 billion related to the company's investment in, and
certain reinsurance and other agreements with, Syncora.

The quarter ended December 31, 2008 included a foreign exchange
gain ofUS$120.7 million as compared with a gain ofUS$39.7 million
in the prior year quarter. Both gains were driven primarily by the
increase in the value of the US Dollar against most European
currencies. The overall impact of foreign exchange fluctuations in
the quarter was a reduction ofUS$196.6 million in the Company's
capital.

Operating expenses for the quarter were US$280.4 million compared
with US$287.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2007.  The decrease
is due primarily to changes in foreign exchange rates, offset in
part by the inclusion of US$8.7 million of expenses related to the
actions taken last quarter to reduce the expense base of the
Company going forward.

Mr. McGavick said, "We have completed the initiatives announced in
July 2008 to reduce costs.  We are on track to deliver the savings
targeted and the costs of this exercise are within our initial
estimates.

"However, the ground has shifted in the past six months for the
insurance industry, the global economy, and XL.  We must recognize
these changes and adjust.  We will focus on our businesses that
deliver the best return on capital.  As a result, we do expect a
meaningful reduction in gross written premium for 2009 as we
reduce those activities that do not meet our hurdle rates and in
response to effects we have seen in a few long-tail lines as a
result of our new S&P rating.  Therefore, we will look to trim
approximately 10% of our current global workforce this year to
streamline operations to best position XL to compete effectively.
The job eliminations will be primarily focused on the corporate
and functional areas.  But efficiency means more than just job
eliminations.  We have also revisited other expenses and
investments as we emphasize simplicity in our operations and
processes.  These actions are expected to cost approximatelyUS$60-
80 million and will lead to a reduction in the underlying expense
base of US$100-US$120 million a year for 2010 onwards."

   Capital Position
   ================

At December 31, 2008, book value per ordinary share was US$15.46,
as compared to US$21.65 as of September 30, 2008.  This decline of
US$2.0 billion orUS$6.19 per ordinary share was due primarily to
the goodwill impairment charge of US$990 million or US$2.99 per
ordinary share, and a reduction in the value of the company's
investment portfolio, after tax, of US$858.7 million or US$2.60
per ordinary share.  The decrease in the value of the company's
investment portfolio was primarily due to a continued widening of
credit spreads on both corporate and structured credit investments
in the extremely difficult capital market conditions again during
the fourth quarter.

The company's investment portfolio was US$34.3 billion as of
December 31, 2008, of which US$31.9 billion was held in fixed
income securities with an average credit quality of AA, including
approximately US$17.2 billion in AAA securities.  75% of the
portfolio was in either AAA or AA rated securities.

Mr. McGavick said, "We are continuing to de-risk the investment
portfolio and the restructuring charge that we have chosen to take
this quarter is an important step in this exercise.

"The non-cash charge against goodwill, primarily related to the
Mid-Ocean acquisition in 1998 that provided the platform for our
property catastrophe reinsurance operations, has removed any
distractions that item may have caused, and combined with other
efforts has simplified our balance sheet.  This business is
strong, we remain committed to it and I fully expect it to deliver
strong ROEs going forward, as it has in the past.  However, the
fall in share prices in the fourth quarter and the increased cost
of capital mean that we no longer feel it appropriate to carry the
goodwill at previous levels.  It's important to note that this
non-cash charge has no impact on rating agency or regulatory
capital or tangible book value.

"Our tangible book value per ordinary share was US$12.88 at the
end of December 2008 compared to US$16.15 at the end of September
2008.  It's worth mentioning that our tangible book value will
increase by approximatelyUS$1.75 per ordinary share as a result of
the scheduled conversion of our Equity Security Units on
February 17, 2009."

"XL is financially and operationally positioned to deliver for its
customers as an independent company, and that's our exclusive
focus.  All indications from the rating agencies lead us to
believe we have ample capital for our ratings."

   2009 Actions
   ============

                       Dividend Reduction and
                       Declaration of Dividend

The company also announced that XL's Board of Directors has
approved a reduction in the quarterly dividend payable on the
Company's Class A Ordinary Shares to US$0.10 per ordinary share.
In line with that reduction, the Board of Directors declared a
quarterly dividend ofUS$0.10 per ordinary share payable on
March 31, 2009 to ordinary shareholders of record as of March 13,
2009.

Mr. McGavick said, "The reduction in our dividend brings our
prospective yield much more in line with where we expect industry
yields to be in 2009.  Despite the difficulties of 2008, we enter
2009 toughened by having had to compete in these challenging
circumstances.  Our January renewals came out well and I am
heartened by the confidence shown in us by our customers, our
employees and by the rating agencies.  The expense initiatives
noted above will only make us more efficient and we believe we are
well-positioned to capitalize on the market turn, and remain
committed to providing value to our clients and our shareholders."

               Segment Highlights - Fourth Quarter &
                      Full Year 2008 vs. 2007

   Insurance
   =========

Mr. McGavick commenting on the Insurance Segment results said,
"Despite considerable challenges, XL Insurance delivered, by and
large, retentions at historical levels; 83% for 2008 versus 2007's
exceptional 86%, while at the same time pushing rate.  Our January
2009 renewals, led by excellent European retentions across all
lines, are turning out to be in the same range as 2008.  We've
done all this and showed our pricing power, demonstrating the
strength of our franchise."

Gross and net premiums written decreased by 15.0% and 13.9%,
respectively, during the three months ended December 31, 2008
compared with the three months ended December 31, 2007.  For the
year ended December 31, 2008, gross and net written premiums
decreased 2.3% and 4.8% to US$5.3 billion and US$4.0 billion,
respectively.  Gross premiums written in the fourth quarter
decreased primarily due to competitive market conditions impacting
pricing across most lines of business, lower levels of long term
agreements and changes in foreign exchange rates.  This was
partially offset by new business.  Net premiums written decreased
primarily as a result of the factors noted above affecting gross
premiums written.

Net premiums earned decreased by 7.2% in the three months ended
December 31, 2008 compared with the three months ended
December 31, 2007.  For the year ended December 31, 2008, net
premiums earned decreased 2.9%. The decrease was mainly due to
lower net premiums written in prior periods.

The loss ratio was 60.7% and the combined ratio was 94.4% in the
fourth quarter of 2008 compared to 65.3% and 98.4%, respectively,
in the fourth quarter of 2007.  The full year 2008 loss ratio was
68.4% and the combined ratio was 98.4% compared to 63.0% and 91.4%
for the same period in 2007.  The 2008 fourth quarter and full
year results included favorable prior year development ofUS$183.4
million (or 19.8 loss ratio points) and US$305.5 million (or 7.6
loss ratio points), respectively, as compared to US$33.5 million
(or 3.3 loss ratio points) and US$158.1 million (or 3.9 loss ratio
points), respectively, in the fourth quarter and full year of
2007. The fourth quarter and full year of 2008 favorable prior
year development included US$80.8 million related to an agreement
with AXA Insurance Ltd (formerly Winterthur Swiss Insurance
Company).  The Agreement releases the funds from the
collateralized escrow arrangement that was put in place in June
2006, as described in the company's Form 8-K filed on June 8,
2006, and releases both parties from all further obligations under
such agreement.  Also included in the fourth quarter of 2008, was
the favorable impact of US$23.8 million related to current year
natural catastrophe losses, primarily Hurricane Ike.  The full
year 2008 included losses of US$138.0 million related to current
year natural catastrophe losses as compared to US$37.0 million
during the full year of 2007.  Excluding the impact of prior year
development and natural catastrophes, the loss ratio was 82.7% and
72.5%, respectively, in the fourth quarter and full year of 2008
as compared with 68.6% and 66.0%, respectively, in the fourth
quarter and full year of 2007.  The increase was due primarily to
a higher level of large property risk losses impacting the current
quarter and full year loss ratios, the impact of higher loss
ratios in professional lines due to subprime and the related
credit crisis, and higher loss ratios in certain specialty lines.
Additionally, there was a one time adjustment that impacted the
loss ratio for the quarter by approximately 2 points, reflecting
revisions to earning patterns for certain contracts.

   Reinsurance
   ===========

Mr. McGavick commenting on the Reinsurance Segment results said,
"XL Re achieved excellent results in 2008, evidenced by a combined
ratio of 79.6% in the quarter and 90.4% for the full year.  In the
January 2009 renewal, we lost only 11% of our renewable premium to
security decisions made by clients following rating agency
actions.  Overall premium written at January 1, 2009 was also
impacted due to selective cancellations by us and to industry wide
trends, such as increased retentions by clients.  XL Re remains a
lead reinsurer in its chosen markets and continues to retain its
key people.  Of the 75 staff who have underwriting authority in
the Reinsurance Segment, only three have left in 2008 which, I
believe, leaves us well placed to capitalize on the attractive
market conditions ahead."

Gross and net premiums written during the three months ended
December 31, 2008 decreased by 24.3% and 10.9%, respectively, as
compared to the fourth quarter in 2007.  For the year ended
December 31, 2008, gross and net written premiums decreased 15.1%
and 16.9% to US$2.3 billion and US$1.8 billion, respectively.  The
decrease in gross premium written is due principally to the
commutation of a large structured reinsurance contract in the
fourth quarter resulting in a US$35 million reduction in written
premium, selective treaty cancellations, increased retentions by
clients and competitive market conditions affecting rates across
most lines, partially offset by a fourth quarter 2008 positive
premium adjustment of US$23.7 million related to certain
agricultural contracts.

Net premiums earned in the fourth quarter of 2008 decreased by
18.9% as compared to the fourth quarter of 2007.  For the year
ended December 31, 2008, net premiums earned decreased 13.4%.
This decrease was a reflection of the overall reduction of net
premiums written over the last 24 months including the purchase of
additional catastrophe loss protection in the second quarter of
2008, partially offset by US$40.2 million of earned premium
related to the premium adjustments on the agricultural contracts
noted above.

The loss ratio was 52.6% and the combined ratio was 79.6% in the
three months ended December 31, 2008 compared to 56.4% and 84.7%,
respectively, in the fourth quarter of 2007.  The full year 2008
loss ratio was 61.7% and the combined ratio was 90.4% compared to
54.1% and 84.0% for the same period in 2007.  The 2008 fourth
quarter and full year results included favorable prior year
development of US$84.9 million (or 17.9 loss ratio points) and
US$305.2 million (or 15.3 loss ratio points), respectively.  The
fourth quarter and full year 2008 results also included the
adverse impact of US$31.1 million and US$251.0 million,
respectively, from current year natural catastrophe losses.  The
fourth quarter and full year of 2007 included US$59.1 million (or
10.1 loss ratio points) and US$267.3 million (or 11.6 loss ratio
points), respectively, of favorable prior year development
andUS$16.7 million and US$102.4 million, respectively, from
natural catastrophe loss activity.  Excluding the impact of prior
year development and natural catastrophe losses, the loss ratio
was 64.4% and 65.0%, respectively, in the fourth quarter and full
year of 2008 as compared to 63.6% and 61.4% in the fourth quarter
and full year of 2007, respectively.

   Life Operations
   ===============

Gross written premiums for the Life Operations segment wasUS$138.6
million during the three months ended December 31, 2008 as
compared to US$154.3 million in the three months ended
December 31, 2007.  Gross written premiums for the Life operations
was US$690.9 million during the twelve months ended December 31,
2008 as compared to US$743.2 million for the same period in 2007.
The decrease was due primarily to foreign exchange rate movements,
partially offset by higher premiums on the regular premium
portfolio as well as growth in U.S. business.  The contribution
for the fourth quarter and full year 2008 was US$27.1 million and
US$120.2 million, respectively, as compared to US$4.0 million and
US$78.7 million in the fourth quarter and full year 2007.  The
increase was driven principally by an increase in business written
and foreign exchange gains, partially offset by lower net
investment income.  In addition, the fourth quarter of 2007
included a US$25.4 million increase in policy benefit reserves
with respect to certain novated blocks of US-based term-life
mortality reinsurance business.

   Other Financial Lines
   =====================

The Other Financial Lines segment recorded a contribution of
US$0.5 million during the three months ended December 31, 2008 as
compared to a contribution of US$15.7 million in the prior year
quarter. For the twelve months ended December 31, 2008 the
contribution from the Other Financial Lines segment was US$18.1
million as compared to US$48.1 million.  The lower income in the
quarter arose from lower underlying balances as a result of the
redemption of US$4 billion of Guaranteed Investment Contracts and
US$1.2 billion of funding agreements during the year and was
partially offset by reduced operating expenses.

AIR JAMAICA: Expects Final Proposal From 3 Prospective Investors
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Air Jamaica Privatization Committee expects a final proposal
by the end of February, from the three airlines that have
expressed an interest in buying Air Jamaica, Go-Jamaica News
reports.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
Feb. 5, 2009, Jamaica Gleaner said the Air Jamaica Privatization
Committee confirmed that it's now in serious discussions with
three prospective investors from three different geographic
location regarding the divestment of the national airline.

Committee Chairman Dennis Lalor, Go Jamaica relates, said two of
the three entities have expressed added interest in taking over
the national airline since it announced its new business plan.

Go-Jamaica notes that Mr. Lalor said he is confident that the deal
will be finalised with one of the companies as they are all in a
financial position to ensure the viability of Air Jamaica.  The
deal could be completed before the March 31 divestment deadline,
Mr. Lalor added, as cited by the report.

Go-Jamaica says the government has been trying to divest the debt-
ridden airline, which has reportedly been costing the country
between US$10 to 15 million monthly.

               Could Liquidate if No Buyer Emerges

A TCRLA report on Feb. 10, 2009, citing the Jamaica Gleaner, said
Senator Don Wehby, head of Air Jamaica Privatisation Committee, is
giving the Jamaican government an option to liquidate Air Jamaica
if no viable investor was found by the divestment deadline on
March 31.

According to The Gleaner, Senator Wehby said liquidation is a
better option than rolling out a new round of subsidies for the
struggling flagship airline in the fiscal year ahead.

"Trying to keep it could result in a forced closure because of the
lack of funds to carry the airline, especially in the context of
the present world economic downturn and the hard demands that are
being made on the budget," Senator Wehby was quoted by the Gleaner
as saying.

                        About Air Jamaica

Headquartered in Kingston, Jamaica, Air Jamaica --
http://www.airjamaica.com/-- was founded in 1969.  It flies
passengers and cargo to almost 30 destinations in the Caribbean,
Europe, and North America.  Air Jamaica offers vacation packages
through Air Jamaica Vacations.  The company closed its intra-
island services unit, Air Jamaica Express, in October 2005.

The Jamaican government owned 25% of the company after it went
private in 1994. However, in late 2004, the government assumed
full ownership of the airline after an investor group turned over
its 75% stake.  The Jamaican government does not plan to own Air
Jamaica permanently.

                         *     *     *

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
Nov. 6, 2008, Moody's Investors Service placed the debt ratings of
Air Jamaica Limited, B1 senior unsecured notes guaranteed by the
Government of Jamaica, on review for possible downgrade.  The
review coincides with Moody's action placing the ratings of the
Government of Jamaica under review for downgrade on November 4,
2008.

GRUPO CASA: Moody's Withdraws 'Ba3' Corporate Family Rating
-----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has withdrawn all of its ratings for
Grupo Casa Saba, S.A.B. de C.V.  The withdrawal reflects Moody's
belief that it lacks adequate information for maintaining the
ratings.

These ratings and outlook have been withdrawn:

  - Local currency corporate family rating of Ba3 - Withdrawn;

  - Mexican national scale corporate family rating of A3.mx -
    Withdrawn;

  - Outlook: Under review for possible downgrade - Withdrawn.

Moody's does not rate any of Casa Saba's debt instruments.
Before today's rating withdrawal, the last action on Casa Saba's
ratings was on October 16, 2008, when Moody's downgraded the
company's ratings to Ba3 and A3.mx from Ba2 and A1.mx and placed
all the ratings on review for possible further downgrade.

Casa Saba's ratings had been assigned by evaluating factors that
Moody's believes are relevant to the company's risk profile, such
as (i) overall business risk and competitive position, (ii)
projected performance over the near to intermediate term, and
(iii) financial position, liquidity, and predictability of cash
flow generation. These attributes were compared against other
issuers both within and outside Casa Saba's industry.

Headquartered in Mexico City, Grupo Casa Saba, S.A.B. de C.V.
(Casa Saba) is one of Mexico's two leading distributors of
pharmaceutical products with a nation-wide presence.  For the 12
months ended September 30, 2008, the company's revenues reached
about MXN27.7 billion, of which 88% derived from the distribution
of pharmaceuticals (including 3% to government entities), 9% from
health and beauty aids, consumer goods, general merchandise and
other, and 3% from publications.  Casa Saba is controlled by the
Saba family, which owns 85% of the company's stock listed on the
Mexican and New York stock exchanges.

                            ***********

Monday's edition of the TCR-LA delivers a list of indicative
prices for bond issues that reportedly trade well below par.
Prices are obtained by TCR-LA editors from a variety of outside
sources during the prior week we think are reliable.   Those
sources may not, however, be complete or accurate.  The Monday
Bond Pricing table is compiled on the Friday prior to
publication.  Prices reported are not intended to reflect actual
trades.  Prices for actual trades are probably different.  Our
objective is to share information, not make markets in publicly
traded securities.  Nothing in the TCR-LA constitutes an offer
or solicitation to buy or sell any security of any kind.  It is
likely that some entity affiliated with a TCR-LA editor holds
some position in the issuers' public debt and equity securities
about which we report.

Tuesday's edition of the TCR-LA features a list of companies
with insolvent balance sheets obtained by our editors based on
the latest balance sheets publicly available a day prior to
publication.  At first glance, this list may look like the
definitive compilation of stocks that are ideal to sell short.
Don't be fooled.  Assets, for example, reported at historical
cost net of depreciation may understate the true value of a
firm's assets.  A company may establish reserves on its balance
sheet for liabilities that may never materialize.  The prices at
which equity securities trade in public market are determined by
more than a balance sheet solvency test.

A list of Meetings, Conferences and Seminars appears in each
Thursday's edition of the TCR-LA. Submissions about insolvency-
related conferences are encouraged.  Send announcements to
conferences@bankrupt.com
