GARANTIZAR SGR: Moody's Reviews 'B1' Global Currency IFS Rating
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Latin America has placed under review for possible
downgrade the insurance financial strength ratings of Garantizar
SGR, including its B1 global local-currency IFS rating and the
Aa3.ar IFS rating on the Argentina national scale.  This rating
action on Garantizar follows Moody's global review of systemic
support for banks ratings in Argentina.

Garantizar is the largest financial guarantor in Argentina,
focused on serving the small and medium size corporate market, in
order to facilitate their access to different sources of funding.
Its largest shareholder is the state-owned Banco de la Nacion
Argentina (unrated by Moody's) -- the largest bank in the
country -- which owns 24% of the company.  Moody's current ratings
of Garantizar get uplift from its stand-alone credit profile due
to the partial ownership, affiliation, and implied support of
Banco de la Nacion Argentina.

On May 29th, 2009, Moody's placed the global local-currency
ratings of 16 Argentine banks on review for possible downgrade in
light of its global review of systemic support for bank ratings.
The review of the banks' local currency ratings incorporates the
extent to which Argentina's ability to provide support to its
banking system, should such support be needed, would converge with
the government's own debt capacity as a result of the ongoing
global economic and credit crisis.

According to Moody's, the review for possible downgrade of
Garantizar's ratings will focus primarily on the indirect impact
that Moody's global review of systemic support assumptions for
bank credit could have on Garantizar's credit profile, given the
strategic importance of the guaranty business to its main bank
shareholder.  The review for downgrade will also focus on the
elevated trends in Garantizar's operating leverage and
delinquencies.

The rating agency said that Garantizar's credit profile benefits
from its very strong market position, brand, and reputation in
light of its integration not only with Banco de la Nacion
Argentina, but also with other important banks like Banco de
Inversion y Comercio Exterior, Banco de la Ciudad de Buenos Aires,
and with the Interamerican Investment Corporation (IIC, part of
the Inter-American Development Bank, IDB).  As the dominant
participant in this market, Garantizar plays a major role in the
economy as a developer of these types of guarantees, promoting
them across most of Argentina's provinces.

Offsetting these positive credit considerations, Moody's noted
high credit risks in Garantizar's investment portfolio, an
increasing trend in its operating leverage (both adjusted and
unadjusted), and the weak operating/sovereign environment of
Argentina.

Based in Buenos Aires, Garantizar SGR reported total assets of
about AR$261 million, outstanding guarantees of AR$479 million and
shareholders' equity of AR$211 million as of December 31, 2008.
During this last fiscal year, the company reported a net loss of
AR$4.7 million.

NOTE: Moody's national scale ratings rank an enterprise's credit
risk on a relative basis in comparison with other firms within the
same country.  Such ratings are designed for use at the local
(national) level, and they are not globally comparable.  For
Argentine companies, national scale ratings carry the identifier
".ar".  Moody's global local currency ratings indicate the
relative credit risk on a globally comparable basis.  Taken
together, the national scale and global local currency ratings
provide a more comprehensive opinion about the credit risk of the
company.  Moody's insurance financial strength ratings are
opinions about the ability of insurance companies to punctually
pay senior policyholder claims and obligations.


GENERAL MOTORS: Argentina to Use Pension Funds for Unit's Loan
--------------------------------------------------------------
Bill Faries and Eliana Raszewski of Bloomberg News report that
Argentina will use Us$70 million of nationalized pension funds to
provide General Motors Corp.’s Argentine unit with a loan to help
the company finish work on a new car model.  The report relates
Argentina President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner said the loan
would pay for 58% of GM’s “Viva” project.

“One of the conditions we demanded to provide this loan is that
all the auto parts used in this project have to be locally made,”
Bloomberg News quoted Ms. Fernandez as saying.  “This is going to
guarantee jobs in an industry that has been essential in the
creation of the more than 4 million posts that we have generated
since 2003.”

According to the report, the government's announcement comes as
part of its plan to use some of the US$24 billion in pension funds
it nationalized last year to maintain economic growth and
employment.

Headquartered in Detroit, Michigan, General Motors Corp. (NYSE:
GM) -- http://www.gm.com/-- was founded in 1908.  GM employs
about 266,000 people around the world and manufactures cars and
trucks in 35 countries.  In 2007, nearly 9.37 million GM cars and
trucks were sold globally under the following brands: Buick,
Cadillac, Chevrolet, GMC, GM Daewoo, Holden, HUMMER, Opel,
Pontiac, Saab, Saturn, Vauxhall and Wuling.  GM's OnStar
subsidiary is the industry leader in vehicle safety, security and
information services.

GM Europe is based in Zurich, Switzerland, while General Motors
Latin America, Africa and Middle East is headquartered in Miramar,
Florida.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter, GM reported net loss
of $6.0 billion, including special items, in the first quarter of
2009.  This compares with a reported net loss of $3.3 billion in
the year-ago quarter.  As of March 31, 2009, GM had $82.2 billion
in total assets and $172.8 billion in total liabilities, resulting
in $90.5 billion in stockholders' deficit.

On April 27, General Motors presented the U.S. Department of
Treasury with an updated plan as required by the loan agreement
signed by GM and the U.S. Treasury on December 31, 2008.  The plan
addresses the key restructuring targets required by the loan
agreement, including a number of the critical elements of the plan
that was submitted to the U.S. government on December 2, 2008.
Among these are: U.S. market competitiveness; fuel economy and
emissions; competitive labor cost; and restructuring of the
company's unsecured debt.  It also includes a timeline for
repayment of the Federal loans, and an analysis of the Company's
positive net present value.  The plan details the future reduction
of GM's vehicle brands and nameplates in the U.S., further
consolidation in its workforce and dealer network, accelerated
capacity actions and enhanced manufacturing competitiveness, while
maintaining GM's strong commitment to high-quality, fuel-efficient
vehicles and advanced propulsion technologies.  A full-text copy

NACION SEGUROS: Moody's Reviews 'B1' Insurance Strength Rating
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Latin America has placed under review for possible
downgrade the B1 global local-currency insurance financial
strength rating of Nacion Seguros S.A., while affirming the Aa3.ar
Argentine national scale IFS rating.  This rating action on Nacion
Seguros follows Moody's global review of systemic support for bank
ratings in Argentina.

Nacion Seguros is the insurance subsidiary of the state-owned
Banco de la Nacion Argentina (not rated by Moody's), the largest
bank in the country.  It specializes in underwriting traditional
group life policies and, to a lesser extent, individual life
coverage, as well as property and casualty insurance since 2008.
Moody's current B1 global local-currency IFS rating of Nacion
Seguros gets rating uplift from its stand-alone credit profile due
to the ownership and implied support of its parent, Banco de la
Nacion Argentina.

On May 29, 2009, Moody's placed the global local-currency ratings
of 16 Argentine banks on review for possible downgrade in light of
its global review of systemic support for bank ratings.  The
review of the banks' local currency ratings incorporates the
extent to which Argentina's ability to provide support to its
banking system, should such support be needed, would converge with
the government's own debt capacity as a result of the ongoing
global economic and credit crisis.

According to Moody's, the review for possible downgrade of Nacion
Seguros' global local-currency IFS rating will focus primarily on
the indirect impact that Moody's global review of systemic support
assumptions for bank credit could have on the insurers' credit
profile, given the strategic importance of the insurance business
to its banking parent.

Moody's said that it affirmed the Aa3.ar Argentine national scale
rating because Nacion Seguros' credit profile, relative to other
firms within Argentina on a peer comparison basis, is still in
line with that rating level.  Moody's B1 GLC IFS rating in
Argentina can be mapped to a Aa3.ar or Aa2.ar, whereas Moody's B2
GLC IFS rating can be mapped to a Aa3.ar, A1.ar, or A2.ar national
scale IFS rating.  If the review of Nacion Seguros' GLC IFS rating
results in a 1-notch downgrade to B2 from B1, the rating agency
said the Aa3.ar national scale IFS rating would still be
appropriate relative to other companies in Argentina.

Nacion Seguros has shown good profitability and capitalization,
but Moody's noted that its credit profile is considerably
constrained by the poor quality of its investment portfolio, as
well as by the significant systemic country-specific risk of doing
business in Argentina.  Among other concerns, Moody's noted that
Nacion Seguros will be challenged as it tries to diversify into
the competitive general insurance market.

Based in Buenos Aires, Argentina, during the third quarter of the
2008/9 fiscal year, ended March 31st 2009, Nacion Seguros reported
a net profit of AR$33 million.  Total assets rose to
AR$348 million, and shareholders' equity was AR$ 168 million -- or
24% higher than the AR$135 million reported as of June 30, 2008.

NOTE: Moody's national scale insurance financial strength ratings
rank an enterprise's financial strength on a relative basis in
comparison with other firms' within the same country.  Such
ratings are designed for use at the local (national) level, and
they are not globally comparable.  For Argentine companies,
national scale ratings carry the identifier of ".ar".  In
contrast, global local-currency insurance-financial strength
ratings indicate the relative credit risk of an insurance company
on a globally comparable scale.  In the case of ratings of
insurers domiciled in a country with a speculative grade sovereign
rating, such as Argentina, these ratings are the result of several
factors: the political risk; the risk of a generalized debt
moratorium; the weakness of the legal environment or framework;
and the risk of interference in the functioning of the financial
system.  Taken together, the national scale and global local-
currency ratings provide a more comprehensive opinion about the
credit risk of the company.  Moody's insurance financial strength
ratings are opinions about the ability of insurance companies to
punctually pay senior policyholder claims and obligations.

AIC BARBADOS: Asks Creditors for Another Debt Extension
-------------------------------------------------------
Michael Lee-Chin led company AIC Barbados Limited has asked its
creditors for another extension to make payments on maturing
instruments as divestment of the sale of assets in its portfolio
is taking longer than expected, RadioJamica News reports, citing a
company statement.  The Jamaica Gleaner relates Mr. Lee-Chin is
selling his Pan Caribbean fibre optic cable business, Columbus
Communications, to pay off the debt.

According to Jamaica Gleaner, Mr. Chin failed to come up with the
US$155 million (J$13.8 billion) that AIC Barbados owes bond
holders.  The Gleaner relates that based on an internal document,
about US$108 million of the debt is owed to Jamaican investors, of
which US$47 million is due this year.

Mr. Lee Chin, The Gleaner says, was already granted one extension
to June 11 to repay the bonds, however, he asked investors again
to extend the wait to November.  The same report recalls Mr. Lee
Chin already missed the initial maturity date for US$40 million of
the debt in March this year.

The Gleaner says if Mr. Lee Chin fails to stave off any move by
worried investors to call default, he will be forced to sell:

   -- 20% of Columbus;
   -- National Commercial Bank (NCB) towers in
      New Kingston; and
   -- 877 million shares in the bank originally used
      to secure the debt.

RadioJamaica notes the company said global credit crisis and the
recession have created significant liquidity pressures in the
local and regional capital markets prompting AIC Barbados to
restructure the maturities of notes.

Meanwhile, RadioJamaica says the company statement insisted that
the restructuring has no impact on the business holdings of AIC.

                      About AIC Barbados

AIC Barbados Limited, which is valued at more than US$1 billion,
comprises several Caribbean holdings including Jamaica's largest
deposit taking institution the National Commercial Bank.

GENERAL MOTORS: Bankruptcy Won't Affect Dominican Rep. Operations
-----------------------------------------------------------------
General Motors Corp.'s bankruptcy filing in the United States will
not affect its operations in the Dominican Republic.  The
company's bankruptcy won’t affect the imports and the spare parts
of Hummer, Chevrolet and Cadillac automobiles in the country, The
Dominican Today reports, citing the dealers of those brands Santo
Domingo Motors (Chevrolet and Cadillac) and Latinoautos (Hummer).

According to the report, the dealers said with U.S. President
Barack Obama’s announced reconstruction plan the automotive giant
is expected to surface form the bankruptcy’s judicial process
within 90 days, during which they said imports of original parts
and automobiles will continue normally.

The Dominican Today notes Latinautos said Hummer will continue
having the same demand in the country, since the announcement by
the Chinese company Sichuan Tengzhong Industrial Heavy Machinery
bought the brand reaffirms the Dominicans’ confidence in acquiring
the vehicle, apart from assurances that spare parts wouldn’t
become scarce.

AIR JAMAICA: Grenada Spends $250,000 to Support Non-Stop Flights

According to the report, with a new government in office, Grenada

marketplace.

Air Jamaica, the report relates, currently flies between New York
and Grenada on Wednesdays and Saturdays, and will add a Friday
flight beginning June 26, and a Monday service starting July 13
for a total of four weekly flights through the summer travel

                       About Air Jamaica

Headquartered in Kingston, Jamaica, Air Jamaica
Limited -- 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.


* GRENADA: IMF Completes Economic Review Under PRGF Arrangement
---------------------------------------------------------------
The Executive Board of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) has
completed the third review of Grenada’s economic performance under
the Poverty Reduction and Growth Facility (PRGF) arrangement.  IMF
also approved to increase financial assistance under the
arrangement by an amount equivalent to SDR4.39 million (about
US$6.8 million) to a total of SDR16.38 million (about US$25.4
million) to help Grenada cope with the adverse effects of the
global slowdown and financial turmoil.  The completion of the
review allows for the immediate disbursement of an amount
equivalent to SDR3.875 million (about US$6 million), bringing
total disbursements to SDR10.825 million (about US$16.8 million).

The Executive Board also approved the request to modify a
quantitative performance criterion by relaxing the target for the
end-June 2009 primary balance excluding grants because of lower
revenues as a result of the slowdown in growth.  The Board also
approved the completion of the financing assurances review.

The three-year PRGF with Grenada was approved on April 17, 2006
(see Press Release No. 06/75), augmented in July 2008 to SDR 11.99
million (about US$18.6 million), and extended by one year to
April 16, 2010.

Following the Executive Board discussion, Mr. Takatoshi Kato,
Deputy Managing Director and Acting Chair, made the following
statement:

“Grenada has resolutely implemented its PRGF-supported economic
program in the face of economic difficulties arising from the
global economic downturn.  Since the second half of 2008, tourism
earnings, foreign direct investment, and remittances have
declined, which has led to a marked fall in economic growth and a
projected shortfall in government revenue in 2009.  The
authorities have strengthened policies in response—in particular,
they have tightened fiscal policy since the second half of 2008.
The IMF is providing additional financing to support the
government’s adjustment efforts.

“To address the worsened budgetary outlook, the government is
taking measures to contain public spending and increase spending
efficiency.  The authorities have announced the planned
introduction of a value-added tax in early 2010 to widen the tax
base and increase revenue buoyancy.  They are moving forward to
introduce a market-based property tax and to improve tax
administration.

“At the same time, some economic stimulus is being provided to
sustain growth, mainly through an acceleration of priority capital
spending and an increase in targeted social spending to mitigate
the impact of economic slowdown on vulnerable groups.  In that
regard, it will be important to complete the Country Poverty
Assessment without further delay.

“The authorities have made progress in ongoing institutional
reform to improve economic management, including the recent
establishment of a Debt Management Unit, a Private Sector
Development Office, and a Waste Reduction Unit.  They are
committed to move forward with a more focused structural reform
agenda, including the implementation of a customs reform strategy
and measures to improve the business and investment environment.

“Though the banking sector has remained resilient, the authorities
are carefully monitoring financial sector vulnerabilities.  They
have cooperated closely with regional governments to contain the
fallout from the Trinidad and Tobago-based CL Financial Group, and
plan to continue strengthening nonbank financial supervision and
regulation.

“Grenada remains at high risk of debt distress. Any additional
borrowing, even on concessional terms, would need to be carefully
assessed so as not to undermine progress toward debt
sustainability.  The authorities are encouraged to build on recent
progress in strengthening debt management capacity, and to
continue efforts to regularize financial relations with external
creditors,” Mr. Kato stated.

* HAITI: World Bank Approves US$121 Million Lending Facility
------------------------------------------------------------
The World bank has approved a new four-year US$121 million lending
strategy for Haiti, focusing on increasing economic growth,
creating jobs and reducing the Caribbean island's vulnerability to
disasters, Caribbean360.com reports.  The report relates the money
for the Country Assistance Strategy (CAS) is coming from the
International Development Association (IDA), the part of the World
Bank that helps the world's poorest countries.

According to the report, the bank plans to provide assistance
through a balanced mix of investment projects and development
policy operations.  In addition to the IDA funding, the report
notes, the bank expects to mobilize considerable resources through
the trust funds it administers, maintain a strong program of
analytical and advisory activities, and work closely with the
government and other development partners to advance aid
coordination and harmonization.

Caribbean360.com says the World Bank Group's private sector
financing arm, the International Finance Corporation (IFC), will
aim to catalyze private sector development through direct lending
and advisory services, and leveraging donor support for private
sector development.

"The IFC will focus on maximizing the potential growth of the
agricultural and manufacturing sectors, by stimulating private
sector activity and investment.  We are working with the
government and investors to identify key feasible actions and
priorities that will together have the greatest growth impact,"
the report quoted Atul Mehta, Director of the Latin America and
Caribbean Department, IFC, as saying.

The report adds, overall, IFC will focus on facilitating access to
finance; infrastructure; lending and advising in growth sectors,
including investment opportunities presented by the Haitian
Hemispheric Opportunity through HOPE II; and human capital
development.

HARDWARE & LUMBER: CEO Retires Early Amidst Rocky Times
-------------------------------------------------------
Hardware and Lumber Limited Chief Executive Officer Anthony
Holness has tendered his resignation and will step down from his
post on July 30, Radio Jamaica reports.  The report relates Deputy
CEO of Grace Kennedy Investments, Joseph Taffe, will act in the
position effective August 1.

According to the report, the change comes in the wake of major
challenges facing Hardware and Lumber.

Sabrina Gordon of Jamaica Gleaner reports H&L, except for last
year, had consistently returned profits for the conglomerate, but
has been on a roller coaster that events in the construction
market had more control of, starting with the cement crisis of
2004 and now the decline in construction GDP.  The Gleaner relates
H&L lost $285.6 million in 2008; and continued in the red in the
first quarter ending March 2009, having a net loss of $113 million
on the back of revenues of $1.5 billion notwithstanding recent
restructuring of operations.

According to the Gleaner, those results followed new restructuring
efforts, including the elimination of multiple jobs and the
attendant cost for salaries.  The report relates Mr. Holness's
retirement follows the implementation of the staff rationalisation
programme in December 2008, that cut 88 of H&L employees from the
payroll as well as other contract staff.

The Gleaner recalls in March, GraceKennedy chairman and Chief
Executive Officer relinquished his title as chairman for H&L,
passing the reins to Erwin Burton, who runs the conglomerate's
food division, and making way for Courtney Campbell as a member of
the H&L board of directors.

                    About Hardware and Lumber

Hardware and Lumber Limited is a GraceKennedy outfit that manages
the Rapid TrueValue and Agro Grace chain of retail stores.
Pan Jamaican Investment Trust Limited owns 20.8% of H&L, while
GraceKennedy has a majority 67% stake.

GMAC FINANCIERA: S&P Takes Rating Actions on 20 Mexican RMBS Deals
------------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services took these rating actions on 20
series of Mexican residential mortgage-backed securities
transactions issued by GMAC Financiera, S.A. de C.V., S.F.O.M.,
E.N.R., (mxB-/Developing/mxC); Metrofinanciera S.A. de C.V. SOFOM.
E.N.R. ('D/mxD'); and Hipotecaria Credito y Casa, S.A. de C.V.
S.F.O.L. (not rated):

  -- S&P lowered the ratings on seven series and removed the
     ratings from CreditWatch with negative implications;

  -- S&P lowered the ratings on four series;

  -- S&P affirmed the ratings on seven series and removed the
     ratings from CreditWatch negative; and

  -- S&P affirmed the ratings on two series.

The lowered ratings on the 11 affected series reflect the
transactions' performance deterioration over the past 12 months
due to rising delinquencies and defaults.  As the global economic
and financial crisis continues to challenge the Mexican economy
(unemployment is increasing and disposable household incomes are
shrinking), S&P expects that delinquencies and defaults will
increase further through the end of 2009.  Standard & Poor's
estimated the transactions' delinquencies, defaults, and current
credit enhancement levels according to its methodology for rating
these types of transactions.

The affirmed ratings on the nine affected series, as well as the
removal of 14 of the 20 ratings from CreditWatch negative, are
based on S&P's belief that the current ratings adequately reflect
the risks in these transactions.  However, S&P is still concerned
about the servicers' ability to contain these delinquencies and
defaults, particularly for the Metrofinanciera and Credito y Casa
transactions.  These two servicers have defaulted on their
unsecured obligations, which S&P believes could disrupt their
servicing operations.

S&P analyzed the transactions using LEVELS Mexico to determine
their updated foreclosure frequency and loss severity levels, as
well as S&P's Mexican RMBS cash flow model to determine the new
ratings considering each transaction's financial position,
performance, and structure.

Series MXMACFW 06U and MXMACFW 07U are insured by Financial
Guaranty Insurance Co. (not rated).  However, because Standard &
Poor's no longer rates this monoline insurer, the ratings on these
two series reflect Standard & Poor's underlying ratings on the
transactions.  The SPURs reflect the transactions' performance and
credit quality, absent external enhancements, such as bond
insurance.  Under S&P's structured finance criteria, the issue
rating on an insured bond reflects the higher of the rating on the
bond insurer or the SPUR on the securities.

These rating actions are independent of the possible loan
modifications that servicers may begin taking as part of a relief
program supported by the Sociedad Hipotecaria Federal, the federal
government mortgage agency ("Scenario Analysis: Standard & Poor's
Examines The Effect Of Loan Modifications On Mexican RMBS
Ratings," published April 28, 2009).

Standard & Poor's will continue to monitor all of its rated
Mexican RMBS transactions, as well as the involved servicer
rankings, and may make further rating or ranking adjustments as
necessary.

CL FINANCIAL: Supreme Court Judge Blocks Central Bank
-----------------------------------------------------
Trinidad and Tobago Justice Judith Jones ruled that the Central
Bank couldn't use information on CL Financial Limited outside of
the present case, which deals with the operations of the
financially-strapped company, Oscar Ramjeet of Caribbean Net News
reports.  The report, citing the Trinidad Guardian, says both
sides had been arguing this issue over the last two months.

According to the report, Central Bank Lead Attorney Reginald
Armour SC gave verbal notice of his client’s intention to appeal
and he is hoping to be before the Court of Appeal.

Caribbean Net News relates Judge Jones granted a stay of her order
until the appeal court deals with the issue.  Judge Jones, the
report notes, also continued the injunctions against CL Financial,
which Justice Gregory Delzin had originally granted ex parte on
February 22 this year.

Caribbean Net News recalls during the past months, both sides have
also been dealing with the language and scope of the orders
granted by Judge Delzin.  The report says CL Financial felt that
the orders were too wide and left little scope for the company to
operate without the interference of the Central Bank.  On the
other hand, the Central Bank was pleased with the original orders
and kept insisting that the injunctions be kept in place, the
report adds.

                        About CL Financial

According to Wikipedia, CL Financial Limited is the largest
privately held conglomerate in Trinidad and Tobago and one of the
largest privately held corporations in the entire Caribbean.
Founded as an insurance company, Colonial Life Insurance Company
(CLICO) by Cyril Duprey, it was expanded into a diversified
company by his nephew, Lawrence Duprey.  CL Financial is now one
of the largest local conglomerates in the region, encompassing
over 65 companies in 32 countries worldwide with total assets
standing at roughly US$100 billion.

* VENEZUELA: Seizes 70 Gas Compressors as Takeovers Spread
----------------------------------------------------------
Gianluca Baratti and Steven Bodzin of Bloomberg News report that
the Venezuelan government took control of 70 gas compression units
and will take more as President Hugo Chavez increases control of
energy-related facilities in South America’s biggest oil exporter.

According to the report, President Chavez said the government
plans to take over more facilities until today, June 8.  The state
is targeting operators that “don’t comply with the constitution,”
he said.

As reported in the Troubled Companny Reporter-Latin America on
May 7, 2009, Bloomberg News said stated-owned Petroleos de
Venezuela (PDVSA) will take over some oil field services being
carried out by private companies after lawmakers approved a bill
to increase government control.  The National Assembly gave
preliminary approval to allow the government to take over
activities including water injection into oil wells, compressing
natural gas and management of docks and boats in Lake Maracaibo,
Energy and Mines Commission Head Angel Rodriguez said in an e-
mailed statement obtained by Bloomberg News.  The same report
related the statement said that if the state took control from a
company, the government would assess payment at so- called book
value and deduct labor and environmental costs.  Payment would be
in cash, or securities, it added.  According to Bloomberg News,
Venezuela has called on services companies to lower fees by as
much as 40% this year as PDVSA faces increased debt after oil
prices plunged.

According to Moody's Investors Service, Venezuela continues to
carry a B2 foreign currency rating and a B1 local currency rating
with stable outlook.

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
