STANFORD INT'L BANK: ECCB Assures Bank of Antigua is Safe
---------------------------------------------------------
The Eastern Caribbean Central Bank ("ECCB") has assured the public
that Stanford Group-owned Bank of Antigua ("BOA")'s liquidity
position is sound amid the fraud charge againts its owner, Robert
Allen Stanford, Caribbean Net News reports.

Mr. Venner however warned the situation could become the worse if
depositors in Antigua and Barbuda continue to withdraw their funds
in panic, Caribbean360.com relates.

"The Bank of Antigua is not an offshore institution.  It is a
domestic bank licensed under the Banking Act of Antigua and
Barbuda and regulated by the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank,"
Caribbean360.com quoted ECCB Governor Dwight Venner as saying.

According to Caribbean Net News, ECCB pointed out:

   - The Bank of Antigua has sufficient liquidity at its offices
      and reserves at the Central Bank to meet the requirements of
      the public and its customers under normal circumstances.

   - The Eastern Caribbean Central Bank and the Government of
      Antigua and Barbuda have a responsibility to preserve the
      safety and soundness of the banking system in Antigua and
      Barbuda in order to protect depositors.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
February 19, 2009, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission
charged Mr. Stanford and three of his companies for orchestrating
a fraudulent, multi-billion dollar investment scheme centering on
an US$8 billion Certificate of Deposit program.

Mr. Stanford's companies include Antiguan-based Stanford
International Bank Limited (SIBL), Houston-based broker-dealer and
investment adviser Stanford Group Company (SGC), and investment
adviser Stanford Capital Management.  The SEC also charged SIBL
chief financial officer James Davis as well as Laura Pendergest-
Holt, chief investment officer of Stanford Financial Group (SFG),
in the enforcement action.

                       About Bank of Antigua

The Bank of Antigua (BOA) - http://www.bankofantigua.com/- was
incorporated on February 10, 1981 in St. John's, and opened its
doors for business in November of that year.

The bank is a member of Stanford Financial Group, after the group
acquired the bank in December 1990.

                            About SIBL

Domiciled in Antigua, Stanford International Bank Limited --
http://www.stanfordinternationalbank.com/-- is a member of
Stanford Private Wealth Management, a global financial services
network with US$51 billion in deposits and assets under management
or advisement.  Stanford Private Wealth Management serves more
than 70,000 clients in 140 countries.


STANFORD INT'L BANK: Auditor Firm Denies Ties With Allen Stanford
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Antigua-based auditor firm CAS Hewlett & Co said it has no
information about ties to Texas billionaire Allen Stanford,
following Mr. Stanford's statement that the small firm audits his
offshore bank, Stanford International Bank Limited ("SIBL"), Jason
Szep of Reuters reports.

CAS Hewlet Manager Eugene Perry, the report notes, said the firm's
former CEO Charlesworth "Shelley" Hewlett, who died last Jan. 1,
was the only person with possible knowledge of a relationship to
Mr. Stanford.

According to Reuters, Mr. Perry said he never met Mr. Stanford in
his 10 years working at the firm.

A company principal identified as Celia told Reuters in a
telephone interview: "We are not privy to any information about
any relationship with Stanford."  Asked if she was aware of any
files at the firm associated with Mr. Stanford, she told the news
agency she was not.

The report relates SIBL'S midyear report, released in June,
identified CAS Hewlett as its auditors, and the  U.S. Securities
and Exchange Commission also listed the firm as Stanford's
auditor.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
February 19, 2009, the U.S. SEC charged Mr. Stanford and three of
his companies for orchestrating a fraudulent, multi-billion dollar
investment scheme centering on an US$8 billion Certificate of
Deposit program.

Mr. Stanford's companies include Antiguan-based Stanford
International Bank Limited (SIBL), Houston-based broker-dealer and
investment adviser Stanford Group Company (SGC), and investment
adviser Stanford Capital Management.  The SEC also charged SIBL
chief financial officer James Davis as well as Laura Pendergest-

STANFORD INT'L BANK: Case May Take Receiver a Decade to Finish
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Honorable Reed O'Connor of the U.S. District Court for the
Northern District of Texas has appointed a receiver for
businessman Robert Allen Stanford's Antigua-based bank.

According to Bloomberg News, Ralph Janvey, a securities lawyer
with Krage & Janvey LLP in Dallas and a former assistant director
of securities for the U.S. Comptroller of the Currency in
Washington, was appointed receiver for Stanford International Bank
Limited.

Bloomberg News says based on court records, Mr. Janvey was given
broad authority to seize SIBL's computer records, demand documents
and summon witnesses.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America, the
U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, on Feb. 17, charged Mr.
Stanford and three of his companies for orchestrating a
fraudulent, multi-billion dollar investment scheme centering on an
US$8 billion Certificate of Deposit program.  The SEC also charged
SIBL chief financial officer James Davis as well as Laura
Pendergest- Holt, chief investment
officer of Stanford Financial Group (SFG), in the enforcement
action.

SIBL's case will take at least three years and could take Mr.
Janvey as long as a decade to finish repaying SIBL's victims as he
takes on the most difficult receivership job in history, experts
cited by Bloomberg News said.

SIBL's is one of the largest cases in complexity and sheer size
hence making it
more difficult for a receiver to administer, Michael Goldberg, a
lawyer with Miami-based law firm Akerman Senterfitt and is not
involved with the Stanford litigation,
said as cited by Bloomberg News.

SBIL owner Mr. Stanford has been located in the Fredericksburg,
Va., area by the special agents of the Federal Bureau of
Investigation's Richmond Division, the SEC said in a Feb. 19
statement.

The agents served Mr. Stanford with court orders and documents
related to the SEC's civil filing against him and three of his
companies, the regulator said in the statement.

In addition to SIBL, Mr. Stanford owns Houston-based broker-dealer
and investment adviser Stanford Group Company (SGC), and
investment adviser Stanford Capital Management.

The case is Securities and Exchange Commission v. Stanford
International Bank Ltd., 3:09-cv-00298, U.S. District Court,
Northern District of Texas (Dallas).

lay off around 4,200 workers, which represents 20% of its 21,362

global recession, Bloomberg News reports.

The report relates that the job reductions are concentrated in
production and administrative areas and include the elimination of
one layer of management.

According to the report, Embraer forecast a delivery of 242
commercial and business planes this year, from a previous estimate
of 270.

The planemaker, Bloomberg News says, now sees 2009 revenue of
US$5.5 billion, down from its previous outlook of US$6.3 billion.

USIMINAS: Sees Recovery of Steel Demand on Gov't Intervention
-------------------------------------------------------------
Usinas Siderurgicas de Minas Gerais S.A. ("Usiminas") expects
domestic steel demand to rebound after July because of government
initiatives to boost the economy, Laura Price of Bloomberg News
reports.

The company, the report relates, said the government plans to
increase access to credit, reduce taxes on some products and boost
investments in infrastructure.  The central bank is also likely to
cut interest rates further, helping to boost demand, the company
added.

According to Bloomberg News, Usiminas said on Feb. 19 that
fourth-quarter net profit fell 14% to BRL837 million after a
plunge in the Brazilian real contributed to a nine-fold increase
in expenses.

Jayme Alves, an analyst at brokerage Spinelli SA, told Bloomberg
News in an interview before Usiminas's financial report was
released, that an 18% plunge in the value of the Brazilian real
against the dollar in the period increased Usiminas's debt.

The company, the report notes, said about 64% of the company's
debt was in foreign currency in the fourth quarter, while net
financial expenses soared to BRL822 million from BRL89 million a
year earlier.

POPULAR INC: Cuts Quarterly Cash Dividend to US$0.02/ Common Share
------------------------------------------------------------------
Popular Inc.'s Board of Directors reduced the company's quarterly
cash dividend to US$0.02 cent per common share.

The Board believes that increasing the capital base is a prudent
action in face of the prospect of worsening economic conditions.
The reduction in the cash dividend will generate an additional
US$68 million of capital a year.

In addition, Popular also continues to adopt aggressive cost-
reducing measures that are expected to generate savings of
approximately US$34 million annually.  A hiring and salary freeze
across the Corporation continues in effect.

Popular had US$3.27 billion in capital, which is US$630 million
above the 'well capitalized' minimum threshold, and more than
US$880 million in loan loss reserves, as of Dec. 31, 2008.

"The economic picture is likely to get worse before it gets
better, but we are equipped to withstand this painful recession,"
said Popular Inc. CEO and Chairman Richard Carrion.  "We have
implemented aggressive measures to reduce costs.  We will leverage
our franchise in Puerto Rico, which produced net income of $239
million in 2008 amid a rough environment, and continue
restructuring our U.S. operations.  Without question, we have some
difficult months ahead.  Everyone in this business knows that, but
we are well capitalized and will certainly come out stronger from
this."

PDVSA: Wants JV Plan With Petrobras to Push Through Amid Dispute
----------------------------------------------------------------
Venezuela hopes that its joint venture plan with Petroleo
Brasileiro SA (Petrobras) on a US$4 billion Abreu e Lima
Refinery project in Pernambuco will reach an agreement despite
conflict over pricing and product marketing, Brian Ellsworth of
Reuters reports.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
Feb. 16, 2009, a joint venture between Venezuela-owned Petroleos
de Venezuela ("PDVSA") and Petrobras on a refinery project in
Brazil may not come into fruition.

According to Dow Jones Newswires, citing the Estado News Agency,
Paulo Roberto Costa, Petrobras' Supply and Refining director, said
there was an impasse in the proposed oil refinery joint-venture
due to PdVSA's attempts to impose conditions on its participation
in the project, and this may lead to its being excluded.

Mr. Costa, Reuters related, told reporters that PDVSA's plan was
not acceptable due to the pricing mechanism for the heavy crude
that Venezuela would supply to the refinery and the plan for
commercialization of the refined products.

"We're negotiating, mostly over the supply of 100,000 barrels of
crude that we're going to send to Brazil, we are negotiating the
price scheme," Reuters quoted Energy Minister Rafael Ramirez as
saying.  "These problems are normal," he said, adding that product
marketing was also a sticking point.

Reuters notes that Pedro Leon, who heads PDVSA's business
negotiation unit, said Venezuela wants to ensure it has the right
to sell refined products in Brazil, where Petrobras has a virtual
monopoly on fossil fuels.

"They don't want to let us into the Brazilian fuel market," the
news agency quoted Mr. Leon as saying.  "PDVSA wants to have a
presence in the Latin American region, and any company that isn't
positioned in Brazil isn't positioned in the region," he added.

                           About PDVSA

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
