BANCO BILBAO: Fitch Takes Various Rating Actions on Five CDOs
-------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has taken various rating actions on five
collateralized debt obligations of small- and medium-sized
enterprises which were originated by Banco Bilbao Vizcaya
Argentaria ('AA-/ F1+/ Outlook positive) between November 2000 and
June 2007.

The rating actions resolve the Rating Watch Negative status
assigned in August 2009 after Fitch revised its rating criteria
for European granular corporate balance-sheet securitizations on
23 July 2009.  The rating actions are:

BBVA-2 FTPYME - ICO, FTA

  -- EUR2,483,939 Class DCA affirmed at 'AAA'; Outlook stable; no
     Loss Severity Rating assigned

  -- EUR14,282,648 Class DSA affirmed at 'AAA'; Outlook stable;
     assigned LS-3

  -- EUR17,100,000 Class ESA downgraded to 'BBB' from 'A-';
     Outlook negative; assigned LS-3; removed from RWN

BBVA-3 FTPYME, FTA

  -- EUR168,359,949 Class A2(G) affirmed at 'AAA'; Outlook
     stable; no LS assigned

  -- EUR17,657,844 Class B affirmed at 'A+', Outlook negative;
     assigned LS-3; removed from RWN

  -- EUR8,049,899 Class C affirmed at 'BB'; Outlook negative;
     assigned LS-3; removed from RWN

BBVA-4 PYME, FTA

  -- EUR200,641,927 Class A2 affirmed at 'AAA'; Outlook stable;
     assigned LS-1; removed from RWN

  -- EUR18,409,870 Class B affirmed at 'AA'; Outlook negative;
     assigned LS-3; removed from RWN

  -- EUR26,783,804 Class C downgraded to 'B- (B minus)'; Outlook
     negative; assigned LS-3; removed from RWN

BBVA-5 FTPYME, FTA

  -- EUR417,060,729 Class A1 downgraded to 'A' from 'AA'; Outlook
     negative; assigned LS-2; removed from RWN

  -- EUR115,349,320 Class A2 downgraded to 'A' from 'AA'; Outlook
     negative; assigned LS-3; removed from RWN

  -- EUR75,150,042 Class A3(G) affirmed at 'AAA'; Outlook stable;
     no LS assigned

  -- EUR39,900,000 Class B downgraded to 'BB' from 'BBB'; Outlook
     negative; assigned LS-4; removed from RWN

  -- EUR57,000,000 Class C affirmed at 'AAA'; Outlook stable; no
     LS assigned

BBVA-6 FTPYME, FTA

  -- EUR495,963,193 Class A1 downgraded to 'BBB' from 'AA';
     Outlook stable; assigned LS-1; removed from RWN

  -- EUR157,678,397 Class A2(G) affirmed at 'AAA'; Outlook
     stable; no LS assigned

  -- EUR50,300,000 Class B downgraded to 'CCC' from 'BB'; no
     Outlook and LS assigned; removed from RWN

  -- EUR32,300,000Class C downgraded to 'CC' from 'B'; no Outlook
     and LS assigned; removed from RWN

The downgrades largely reflect the implementation of Fitch's
revised SME CDO rating criteria coupled with increasing default
and delinquency levels, difficult macro-economic conditions in
Spain and relatively low credit enhancement levels for the
respective ratings.  BBVA 5 and BBVA 6 are the most heavily
impacted transactions.  Specifically for the junior notes, the
downgrade actions and negative outlooks are also driven by
performance concerns and the increasing obligor concentration as
the transactions amortize.

Of the five transactions, BBVA 2 has amortized most significantly
-- only 3.4% of the initial loan pool remains outstanding as of 30
September 2009 and the portfolio is now heavily concentrated with
the largest loan representing 8.8% and the top ten loans together
making up 27.2% of the outstanding pool.  While the loan portfolio
is mostly secured by real estate mortgages (90.9% of the
outstanding pool balance), the junior note is increasingly at risk
from individual loan defaults and highly reliant on recoveries
achieved.  Therefore, Fitch believes this note cannot achieve a
higher rating than the lowest investment-grade category.

For BBVA 3 the negative outlooks on the junior classes, reflect
increasing arrears and defaults over the past year (2.7% for loans
90 days overdue compared to 0.5%, a year earlier, 1.8% for
defaulted loans compared to 0.2% of the outstanding portfolio in
September 2008) and a minor drawing of the subordinated credit (by
approximately 0.4m) per July 2009 payment date.  However, the
transaction has benefited from increasing credit enhancement as
the portfolio amortizes.  Additionally while obligor concentration
has increased to 1.8% in September 2009 from 0.6% as of 31
December 2004, concentrations are moderate and coverage in case of
large individual obligor defaults appears acceptable for the
current rating levels.

BBVA 4 faces the increased risk of defaulted loans.  From
September 2008 to September 2009 defaulted loans have been
increasing from 0.7% to 4.8% of the outstanding portfolio.  Loans
overdue for 90 days also peaked at 2.6% in June 2009 before
decreasing to 1.3% in September 2009.  Additionally, obligor
concentration is rising as the portfolio amortizes.  As of
September 2009, the largest obligor represented 1.5% compared to
0.4% as of 31 December 2005.

BBVA 5 is also posting a significant increase in reported defaults
as well as a continued rise in late stage delinquencies.  As of
the 30 September 2009 investor report, 90 day arrears reached 3%
of the outstanding portfolio compared to 2% in September 2008 and
defaulted loans reached an absolute peak of 4.8% of the
outstanding balance compared to 0.3% a year earlier.  This has had
a significant impact on the reserve fund, which has been reduced
well below required levels and currently stands at EUR 7.9m
compared to EUR 29.45m.  Fitch is concerned that mounting late
stage delinquencies and resulting defaults will continue to
pressure the reserve fund and potentially deplete it entirely if
performance continues to worsen and loan recoveries take longer to
be realized.

Similarly to BBVA 5, BBVA 6 has also reported material credit
deterioration with rising defaults in August 2009, reaching a peak
level of EUR 24.8m.  Delinquencies (90 day delinquencies increased
to 3.8% in September 2009 from 2% a year earlier) and the
reduction in the reserve fund (currently at EUR 6.8m compared to a
required amount of EUR 21.3m) mirror the situation for BBVA 5.  In
addition, the transaction has posted modest deleveraging and thus
has more limited credit enhancement in place to protect against
credit deterioration in the current environment, particularly the
subordinate classes of notes.

Classes DCA of BBVA2, A2(G) of BBVA 3 and A2(G) of BBVA 6 and
A3(G) of BBVA 5 are all guaranteed by the Kingdom of Spain, rated
'AAA/F1+/Outlook stable'.  In addition the European Investment
Fund ("EIF", rated 'AAA/ F1+/Outlook stable') guarantees the
payment of timely interest and ultimate principal on the Class C
note of BBVA 5.  As such, the ratings of these classes are
directly credit-linked to that of the respective guarantor when
the current available credit enhancement is insufficient to
support the current ratings on a stand-alone basis.  In
particular, Fitch expects that the EIF guarantee on the Class C
notes of BBVA 5 is likely to be drawn in the near-to medium-term
as the reserve fund supporting Class C has been reduced
significantly to provision for defaulted loans.  Given the
pipeline of delinquent loans in this transaction, Fitch expects a
full erosion of the reserve fund, which would make it necessary to
utilize the guarantee to make the due interest payment on Class C
and ultimately redeem the tranche.

Using its Rating Criteria for European SME CLOs, Fitch has assumed
the probability of default of the unrated SME loans to be
commensurate with the 'B' rating category.  According to observed
delinquencies and the origination process of the respective banks
in Spain, the benchmark probability of default is adjusted upward
or downward.  Delinquent loans are notched down depending on the
time the loans have been in arrears.  Recoveries for loans secured
by first lien real estate is adjusted for property indexation and
market value stress based on the criteria but second lien
mortgages are treated as senior unsecured loans.

* ARGENTINA: To Make Offer on Defaulted Debt; May Sell New Bonds
----------------------------------------------------------------
Laura Price and Juan Pablo Spinetto at Bloomberg News report that
Argentine Economy Minister Amado Boudou said the country plans to
make a proposal on the restructuring of US$20 billion of defaulted
bonds within 30 days and may sell new international debt in the
first quarter.  “In 30 days we could get all the administrative
steps to put a formal offer in the market,” Mr. Boudou told the
news agency in an interview.

According the report, Mr. Boudou said that Argentina will seek
approval from as many of the holders of the defaulted debt as
possible and may meet investors in Italy, Germany, Japan, New York
and London.  The report recalls that Mr.  Boudou said on
October 22 that the offer to holders who rejected a 2005
restructuring will be “a little bit” worse than the original swap;
which gave investors about 30 cents on the dollar.

The report notes that Mr. Boudou said Argentina may sell bonds in
international markets to finance investments in utilities and
infrastructure.  However, the report relates, the country won’t
use the bonds to pay debt owed to the Paris Club group of
government creditors.

Argentina, the report says, still owes the Paris Club about US$6.7
billion, which President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner last year
pledged to repay using central-bank reserves.  “Maybe in the first
quarter of next year we will do a new issue of bonds in the
voluntary market,” the report quoted Mr. Boudou as saying.  “We
want to get the funds to improve and enlarge our program of
investments in the real economy, mostly in utilities, like
electricity generation and water systems,” he added.

                           *     *     *

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
October 9, 2009, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it
lowered to 'B-' from 'B' its local currency long-term issuer
credit rating on the City of Buenos Aires.  At the same time,
Standard & Poor's affirmed its 'B-' foreign currency long-term
issuer credit rating.  The outlook on the local and foreign
currency long-term issuer credit ratings is stable.

BANCO FIBRA: Moody's Assigns Foreign Currency Rating at 'Ba2'
-------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned long and short-term foreign
currency ratings of Ba2 and Not Prime, respectively, to Banco
Fibra S.A.'s existing US$1,000,000,000 Global Medium term Note
Program.  At the same time, Moody's assigned a Ba3 foreign
currency debt rating to the plain vanilla 7-year subordinated
notes issued under the program in the amount of US$110,000,000.
The notes are due in November 2016 which are eligible for Tier 2
equity upon regulatory approval.  The ratings outlook is stable.

The rating agency noted that the subordination of the notes was
taken into consideration by applying a one notch differential off
Fibra's Ba2 global local currency deposit rating, as per Moody's
notching convention.  Moody's noted that Fibral's foreign currency
debt ratings remain unconstrained by Brazil's country ceiling.

Banco Fibra is headquartered in Sao Paulo, Brazil and had total
consolidated assets of BRL9,167 billion (US$4,704 billion) and
equity of BRL750 million (US$ 384.9 billion) as of June 30, 2009.

The last rating action on Banco Fibra was on March 27th, 2009,
when Moody's changed the outlook for all the ratings to stable,
from positive.

These ratings were assigned to Banco Fibra S.A.:

  -- US$1,000,000,000 Global Medium Term Note Program: Ba2 and Not
     Prime long and short-term foreign-currency debt ratings,
     stable outlook.

  -- US$110,000,000 Subordinated Notes due in 2016: Ba3 long-term
     foreign currency debt rating, stable outlook.

GOL LINHAS: Posts Preliminary Traffic Figures for October
---------------------------------------------------------
GOL Intelligent Airlines aka GOL Linhas Areas Inteligentes S.A.
disclosed its preliminary traffic figures for October 2009.

In October, GOL recorded demand growth in the domestic market of
46.9% over the same month last year, chiefly due to the company’s
privileged positioning in that market, with high-frequency flights
between airports in densely populated cities and dynamic yield
management, underpinned by high-quality service, punctuality and
regularity.  In addition, the month’s figures were still
reflecting the upturn in demand triggered by the exceptionally
competitive scenario in September and the first ten days of
October.

Due to the differentials and the efforts of its sales area, GOL is
also highly competitive in the corporate market.  According to TMC
Brasil, the business travel operators’ association, GOL’s share of
sales through the association’s affiliates increased by 6.1
percentage points, from 34.2% in the first half of 2008 to 40.3%
in the same period in 2009.  For the same reasons, domestic demand
climbed by 14.1% over September 2009, or 10.4% if the number of
calendar days in each month (September 30 and October 31) are
equalized.

International market demand fell by 7.2% over October 2008, due to
the reduction in the number of seats on certain routes (or reduced
frequencies), designed to maximize operating profitability.  In
relation to September 2009, international demand moved up by
11.2%, thanks to the recovery of traffic on Chilean and
Argentinean routes, given the decline in the number of H1N1 flu
cases due to the end of winter.

GOL continued with its efforts to improve capacity in order to
maximize its operating results, and October’s numbers clearly
reflect this strategy, recording a 15.5% domestic market increase
over October 2008, equivalent to around 1/3 of its total demand
growth in the same month.  In the same period, the load factor
increased by 15.6 p.p. to 72.8%.  In comparison with September
2009, the load factor grew by 5.6 p.p.  Although the highly
competitive price scenario began to ease off in the first week of
October, it was during this period that most tickets for October
flights were sold, maintaining the average net yield at close to
17.00 cents (R$).  In addition, sales for November and December
2009 are already showing clear signs of a recovery.

BACOLOMBIA SA: Posts COP321.2BB Net Income for Qtr Ended Sept.
--------------------------------------------------------------
Bancolombia S.A. recorded consolidated net income of COP321.2
billion for the quarter ended September 30, 2009 or COP 408 per
share -- U.S. $0.85 per ADR. Net income for 3Q09 increased 27% as
compared to the results for the quarter ended June 30, 2009 and
decreased 12% as compared to the results for the quarter ended
September 2008.  Bancolombia’s annualized return on average
shareholders’ equity ("ROE") for 3Q09 was 20.1%, improving from
16.5% in 2Q09.

For the first nine months of 2009, net income totaled COP 885.4
billion (COP 1,124 per share -- USD 2.33 per ADR), decreasing 11%
as compared to the same period last year.

The main components of revenue presented mixed results in 3Q09:

   -- Net interest income totaled COP 849.2 billion,
      decreasing 8% as compared to 2Q09 driven by lower loan
      volumes and lower margins resulting from lower market
      interest rates.

   -- Net fees and income from services totaled
      COP368.6 billion, down 3% as compared to 2Q09.

   -- On the positive side, other operating income totaled
      COP102.4 billion, significantly higher than the COP20
      billion for 2Q09.  Bancolombia notes that it finished
      amortizing the effects generated by methodology
      changes in the valuation of derivatives in 2Q09.

   -- Overall, total revenue amounted to COP1,320 billion,
      remaining stable as compared to COP1,326 billion
      for 2Q09.

Bancolombia SA ended 3Q09 with COP 60,087 billion in assets, down
5% as compared to 2Q09.  Assets denominated in currencies other
than COP (primarily U.S. dollars "USD") represented 26% of total
assets by the end of 3Q09.  Therefore, the 10% appreciation of the
COP against the U.S. dollar during 3Q09 explained, to an extent,
the reduction in assets.  Nonetheless, loan volumes were lower
than expected in 3Q09.  COP-denominated loans decreased 4.3% while
USD-denominated loans remained flat during 3Q09.  This performance
is explained by higher than anticipated prepayments on corporate
loans motivated by increased activity of non-financial firms in
the domestic and international debt markets.  Additionally, credit
demand remained weak due to low levels of economic activity,
further contributing to the sluggish performance of volumes.

On a positive note, the pace of asset deterioration slowed down
for the second consecutive quarter.  The increase in past due
loans before charge-offs for 3Q09 was COP 192.2 billion, down from
COP 237.9 billion and COP 389 billion for 2Q09 and 1Q09
respectively.  Consequently, and helped by recoveries, net
provision charges were significantly lower in 3Q09, totaling COP
168 billion, half the amount of charges for 2Q09. Despite the
lower deterioration, past due loans ("PDLs"), those overdue more
than 30 days, represented 4.1% of gross loans, up from 3.9% in
2Q09. The PDL increase was primarily driven by the loan portfolio
reduction presented in 3Q09.

Above all, Bancolombia maintained a strong balance sheet during
3Q09. The Bank’s reserves for loan losses represented 5.5% of
total loans by the end of 3Q09 while coverage, measured by the
ratio of allowances for loans and accrued interest losses to past
due loans (overdue more than 30 days) ended the quarter at 135%.
Likewise, the Bank’s capital ratio increased during 3Q09. Capital
adequacy (tier 1 + 2 capital ratio) finished at 13.8% in 3Q09,
considerably higher than the 11.4% presented in 3Q08.

                     About Bancolombia S.A.

Bancolombia S.A. is Colombia's largest full-service financial
institution, formed by a merger of three leading Colombian
financial institutions.  Bancolombia's market capitalization is
over US$5.5 billion, with US$13.8 billion asset base and

program in the New York Stock Exchange.

                           *     *     *

In May 2009, Moody's Investors Service upgraded from D to D+,
Bancolombia S.A.'s financial strength rating.  The outlook on the
BFSR was changed to "stable", from "positive".  Bancolombia's
long-term and short-term local currency deposit ratings of "Baa2"
and "Prime- 3", as well as the long-term and short-term foreign
currency deposit ratings of "Ba2" and "Not Prime" were affirmed by
Moody's.  Bancolombia's foreign currency subordinated debt rating
of"Baa3" was also affirmed with a stable outlook by the rating
firm.

Fitch Ratings affirmed on June 2009 Bancolombia's long- and short-
term Issuer Default Ratings and outstanding debt ratings as
follows: Long-term foreign currency IDR at 'BB+'; Short-term
foreign currency IDR at 'B'; Long-term local currency IDR at
'BB+'; Short-term local currency IDR at 'B'; Individual at 'C/D';
Support at '3'; Support Floor at 'BB-'.  At the same time the

ECOPETROL SA: Reduces Gas Exports to Venezuela in Late October
--------------------------------------------------------------
Ecopetrol SA and its partner U.S.-based Chevron Corp., in late
October, reduced shipments of natural gas to Venezuela to about 70
million cubic feet a day, from about 220 million cubic feet a day
as demand in Colombia increased, Inti Landauro at Dow Jones
Newswires reports, citing an unnamed Ecopetrol spokeswoman.  The
report relates that the spokeswoman said that the reduction of gas
exports is independent of the diplomatic clash between the
governments of both countries.

According to the report, the demand for natural gas increased in
Colombia as several gas-fired power-generation plants boosted
electricity production as a drought reduced the amount of water
available in hydro-power plants' reservoirs.  Both companies
export natural gas from the Ballena gas field on in northern
Colombia to Maracaibo in Venezuela through a 224-kilometer
pipeline.

Petroleos de Venezuela SA, the report notes, spent US$467 million
to build the pipeline to ship Colombian gas to Maracaibo.  The
report relates that Venezuela needs to import natural gas, despite
its own huge reserves, because it lacks the infrastructure and
sufficient investment in its natural gas output.

Dow Jones Newswires points out that PDVSA Vice President Asdrubal
Chavez said the company was prepared to face a possible reduced
supply of natural gas.

                            *     *     *

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

                       About Ecopetrol S.A.

* ECUADOR: Negotiates Emergency Electricity Imports With Peru
-------------------------------------------------------------
Ecuador is negotiating with Peru to import between 90 and 100
megawatts of electricity to confront ongoing power shortages,
Mercedes Alvaro at Dow Jones Newswires reports, citing a unnamed
high-level official from Ecuador's Ministry of Electricity.

According to the report, Ecuador started rationing electricity for
between two and six hours per day due to insufficient water levels
at hydroelectric plants.  The report relates that the government
declared an emergency in the electricity sector due to a
generating shortfall at Paute, the nation's biggest hydroelectric
plant.  The emergency, the report says, will allow the Finance
Ministry to seek to guarantee fuel imports for thermoelectric
plants.

Dow Jones Newswires notes that Pablo Cisneros, Ecuador's deputy
minister for electricity, said that electricity rationing could
last for about one month as the the area where the Paute
hydroelectric plant is located is facing one of the worst
droughts.  Dow Jones Newswires says that Paute normally supplies
around 35% of the country's electricity generation, but  now it
currently supplies about 15% of the total.

                           *     *     *

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter - Latin America on
December 17, 2008, Fitch Ratings downgraded Ecuador's long-
term foreign currency Issuer Default Rating (IDR) to 'RD' from
'CCC' following the expiration of the grace period for the coupon
payment on the 2012 global bonds that was due on Nov. 15 and the
government's announcement that it will selectively default on all
global bonds.  The short-term foreign currency rating was
downgraded to 'D' from 'C'.  The country ceiling remains at 'B-'.

AIR JAMAICA: NWU Seeks Update on Divestment Amid Gov't Silence
--------------------------------------------------------------
The National Workers Union, which represents most of Air Jamaica
Limited's workers, is seeking a comprehensive update from the
government on the status of the proposed sale of the cash-strapped
airline, RadioJamaica reports.  The report relates that NWU said
that there are obvious signs that the Air Jamaica Divestment
Committee has hit a stumbling block and is remaining silent on the
matter.

"We are also concern over the fact that we hear news coming out of
Government that the deal between them and Indigo Partners has
fallen through.  We haven't gotten any official word on that yet
and indeed, we're surprised that the administration has not yet
said anything about this to the country and by a lesser extent to
the Air Jamaica Steering Committee," the report quoted Granville
Valentine, NWU Vice-President, as saying.

According to the report, Dr. Omar Davies, Opposition Spokesman on
Finance, said he received information that Air Jamaica had been
taken off the auction block.

The report notes that Bustamante Industrial Trade Union said is
urging the Divestment Committee to seriously consider a bid from
the airline's pilots amid signs that the government is struggling
to find a buyer for Air Jamaica.  "We know that the (Association
submitted their bid for the airline) some three or four weeks ago
(and) we have been advised that the pilots have had no response
whether from the Government or the Divestment Committee.  We
believe that since this submission was an employee driven
submission in terms of acquiring the national airline, the
Divestment Committee should at least give the pilots an invitation
to outline what their proposals are," the report quoted Kavon
Gyale, BITU President-General, as saying.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
October 27, 2009, Jamaica Observer said that the Jamaica Airline
Pilots Association is now waiting a reply from the Jamaican
government after submitting a bid to acquire Air Jamaica Limited.
The report related JALPA President Captain Russell Capleton said
the association, which comprises the airline's 140 pilots, is
spearheading the acquisition effort on behalf of the national
carrier's staff.  The Observer noted that JALPA's bid will give
the government a considerable extension on the time it will need
to find the US$400 million it will cost to rid itself of the
airline, while injecting capital into the ailing carrier.

NATIONAL COMMERCIAL BANK: Posts JM$10.2BB Profit in Yr-Ended Sept
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The National Commercial Bank Jamaica Limited posted net profit of
JM$10.2 billion for the financial year ended September 30, 2009 an
increase of JM$1.5 billion or 18% when compared to the
corresponding period.  The Bank and its Subsidiaries demonstrated
that in spite of the very challenging and difficult financial
environment faced over the past year its continued financial
strength, relevant customer focus and robust operating framework
produced credible and satisfactory results.

Patrick Hylton, NCB Group Managing Director attributes the Bank’s
positive outcomes for the financial year to three tenets: 1)
capital strength, 2) having strong levels of liquidity and most
importantly 3) having a strong governance framework.  Mr. Hylton
emphasized that high importance was placed on this framework which
is necessary in this current financial environment to manage risks
and avoid excesses.

Mr. Hylton recognized and noted that the competences of the Bank’s
management and staff also attributed to the successes of the Bank
for the past financial year.  Mr. Hylton stressed “The results
underscore that we have been busy building a fortress of a
financial institution.  A fortress, which is underpinned by strong
capital; strong liquidity; strong management; a strong and robust
governance; a highly motivated, highly competent and committed
staff.”

Based on the latest Bank of Jamaica Commercial Banking Industry
Review (June 2009) NCB had the largest market share of net loans
recording a 25% growth over the prior year which exceeded the
industry’s growth of 20%.  The Earnings per Stock Unit of JM$4.16
grew by JM$0.62 or 18%. Most notably, the Wealth Management arm of
the Bank, NCB Capital Markets, showed an increase of JM$1.6
Billion and NCB Insurance Company contributed a net profit of
JM$1.7 Billion.  Overall, these Business segments results
represent the strategic management of customer relationships and
needs and the careful management of interest rate spreads along
with the Bank’s risks and costs.

The Group Chief Financial Officer, Yvonne Clarke in her
presentation of the overall financial performance of the Group,
stressed the major initiatives which were pivotal in maintaining
the valued customer relationships namely: the Money Matters
Campaign which sought to proactively encourage and work with
customers in managing their debts to avoid delinquency; as well as
to provide tools and options to ensure financial stability.  In
closing she outlined the Corporate Social Initiatives undertaken
for the year which were in excess of $38.6m concentrated in
education, sports and community development.

Dennis Cohen, Deputy Group Managing Director, in closing effused
“We will remain nimble as we are building a sustainable
institution that will take advantage of the opportunities
regardless of the conditions and challenges which we face.  We
remain opportunistic as we continue to build on this venerable
organization.” Mr. Cohen continued, “The key tenet in our drive is
Strength and our capital numbers are impressive ensuring that we
are sustainable and remain committed in keeping the institution
strong for all our stakeholders.”

On November 5, 2009, the Board declared an interim dividend of
JM$0.89 per ordinary stock unit.  The dividend is payable on 03
December 2009 for stockholders on record as at November 20, 2009.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
August 10, 2009, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it
lowered its long-term ratings on National Commercial Bank Jamaica
Ltd., including the counterparty credit rating, to 'CCC+' from

BANCO DE CREDITO: S&P Affirms 'BB' Rating On $250 Mil. Notes
------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it affirmed its 'BB'
subordinated debt rating on Banco de Credito del Peru's
$250 million noncumulative fixed/floating-rate step-up junior
subordinated notes due 2069.  Proceeds from the issuance will be
used for general corporate purposes.

The rating affirmation followed the increase in the issuance
amount to $250 million from an original expected amount of
$225 million.  S&P sees the debt increase resulting from this
issuance as not significant.  The notes will have a 9.75% fixed
interest rate for the first 10 years and will accrue interest at
three-month LIBOR plus a spread of 816.7 basis points (bps)
thereafter.  S&P characterizes the notes as having "intermediate
strong" equity credit for the first 40 years due to the
securities' flexibility of payments, the step-up in interest rates
at year 10 of 200 bps, the long-dated maturity, and significant
subordination.

S&P's rating on the securities is two notches below S&P's long-
term counterparty credit rating on BCP to reflect the incremental
risk to investors related to the notes' subordinated position in
the capital structure and the issuer's flexibility in making
payments.  S&P's ratings on this type of hybrid security generally
incorporate the risk of nonpayment despite the permissibility of
that under the terms of the issue.  BCP may opt to suspend
interest payments on this issue subject to a restriction on paying
interest on pari passu or more junior securities or dividends and
a restriction on repurchasing such securities during and for 12
months following such suspension.

In addition, interest on this security will be mandatorily
suspended if BCP is not in compliance with applicable regulatory
capital requirements, if there is a prohibition mandated by the
sector's regulatory body (Superintendency of Banks, Insurance, and
Private Pension Fund Administrators), or if there are no
distributable profits as of the latest fiscal year end.  Despite
this flexibility, S&P views the risk of a suspension of interest
as remote and thus rate the issue two notches below the
counterparty credit rating.  If circumstances lead to an increased
risk of a suspension of payments, S&P could further widen the
notching on this issue.

BCP faces the risks inherent to the Peruvian economy, which is
feeling the effects of the global recession amid a relatively high
poverty level and high competitive pressures in the banking
system.  However, S&P believes BCP is well positioned to face
these conditions.

BCP is the largest financial institution in Peru.  The bank enjoys
a well-diversified business profile in retail and wholesale
banking, asset management, private banking, and treasury
activities.

* PERU: Ecuador Negotiates Emergency Electricity Imports
--------------------------------------------------------
Ecuador is negotiating with Peru to import between 90 and 100
megawatts of electricity to confront ongoing power shortages,
Mercedes Alvaro at Dow Jones Newswires reports, citing a unnamed
high-level official from Ecuador's Ministry of Electricity.

According to the report, Ecuador started rationing electricity for
between two and six hours per day due to insufficient water levels
at hydroelectric plants.  The report relates that the government
declared an emergency in the electricity sector due to a
generating shortfall at Paute, the nation's biggest hydroelectric
plant.  The emergency, the report says, will allow the Finance
Ministry to seek to guarantee fuel imports for thermoelectric
plants.

Dow Jones Newswires notes that Pablo Cisneros, Ecuador's deputy
minister for electricity, said that electricity rationing could
last for about one month as the the area where the Paute
hydroelectric plant is located is facing one of the worst
droughts.  Dow Jones Newswires says that Paute normally supplies
around 35% of the country's electricity generation, but  now it
currently supplies about 15% of the total.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter - Latin America on
December 17, 2008, Fitch Ratings downgraded Ecuador's long-
term foreign currency Issuer Default Rating (IDR) to 'RD' from
'CCC' following the expiration of the grace period for the coupon
payment on the 2012 global bonds that was due on Nov. 15 and the
government's announcement that it will selectively default on all
global bonds.  The short-term foreign currency rating was
downgraded to 'D' from 'C'.  The country ceiling remains at 'B-'.

MERCANTIL CA: Moody's Downgrades Local Currency Ratings to 'Ba3'
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded both the long term local
currency deposit rating of Mercantil, C.A., Banco Universal to
Ba3, from Ba2, and that of Banco de Venezuela to Ba2, from Ba1.
The outlook is stable for both these ratings.  At the same time,
Moody's confirmed Banvenez's bank financial strength rating at D-,
with a negative outlook.

The downgrade of the local currency deposit ratings is driven by
the rating agency's reassessment of a government's ability to
support its banks during a protracted, systemic event, such as
during the ongoing global crisis.  The likelihood of such support
is an important part of Moody's credit analysis, and it provides
uplift to deposit ratings above the floor implied by a banks' own
financial strength.  The local currency deposit rating downgrades
bring both banks' ratings closer in line with that of the
Venezuelan government's own B1 local currency bond rating.  These
rating actions conclude the review for possible downgrade of the
deposit ratings initiated on July 1, 2009.

Moody's noted that the rating action on Mercantil's deposits does
not reflect a change in the bank's intrinsic financial strength.
In fact, on July 1, 2009, Moody's had affirmed Mercantil's D- bank
financial strength rating and its Ba3 unsupported baseline credit
assessment to reflect the adequacy of the bank's balance sheet.
The bank financial strength rating measures a bank's intrinsic
safety and soundness and, as such, excludes external credit-
support elements.  Mercantil's Ba3 deposit local currency rating
benefits from no uplift due to systemic support.

The confirmation of Banvenez's D- bank financial strength rating
reflects Moody's view of its potentially enhanced importance in
the system, which could result from its intended role as a
consolidator of other Venezuelan public sector banks, under the
newly created Corporacion de la Banca Pública.

However, Moody's believes Banvenez's new role is also likely to
result in changes in the bank's risk management and thus its asset
allocation, as greater emphasis is placed on executing public
policy at the expense of risk-adjusted returns.  Over the medium
term Bavenez's new public policy role may have a negative effect
on the bank's financial metrics, Moody's said -- particularly
asset quality, profitability and capitalization -- which it
assesses in its analysis of a bank's intrinsic financial strength.
The rating agency therefore has assigned a negative outlook to
Banvenez's financial strength rating, indicating that it would
monitor the bank's financial fundamentals closely during the next
several quarters.

Banvenez's new Ba2 deposit rating reflects full systemic support
for the bank's local currency obligations as a government-owned
bank, which adds one notch of uplift to the bank's unsupported
baseline credit assessment.

        Deposit Rating Changes Reflect Revised Approach to
                          Systemic Support

Moody's has refined its assessment to better reflect the capacity
of governments to support their banking systems as a whole in the
event of a systemic crisis.  Moody's continues to believe that
most governments are likely to support their banking systems
during a crisis to avoid a meltdown of the local payment system.

Nevertheless, the agency also views the capacity of a country and
its central bank to support the nation's banks to be more closely
aligned with the government's own creditworthiness, especially in
times of crisis like these.

Moody's said that the new systemic support indicator for Venezuela
has been established at Ba2, thus replacing the current Baa1 local
currency deposit ceiling.  Despite the downgrade, the Ba2 systemic
support indicator remains two notches above the government's B1
local currency bond rating.

The two-notch differential reflects Moody's assessment of the
Venezuelan government's high willingness and ability to support
its banking system.  This attitude is demonstrated by these: (i) a
history of no local currency deposit defaults in the past 20
years; (ii) the small size of the banking system in relation to
GDP -- a very modest 19%; (iii) the virtual lack of foreign
currency obligations by banks, given that foreign currency lending
or deposit-taking is not allowed in Venezuela; and iv) a very high
level of central government intervention in the bank industry,
which suggests a high likelihood that the government will continue
to support the banking system as a whole.

Moody's also pointed out that Venezuelan banks have for some time
successfully managed their operations in a highly unpredictable
legal, political, and economic environment.  Continued high
inflation, coupled with negative economic growth, will cause lower
business volumes and declining asset quality, thus continuing to
stress the banking system's performance.

Moody's last rating action on Mercantil and Banvenez was on
July 1, 2009.  At this time, Moody's placed the local currency
deposit ratings of both banks on review for possible downgrade.
At the same time, Moody's affirmed Mercantil's D- bank financial
strength rating with a stable outlook and placed Banvenez's D-
bank financial strength rating on review for possible downgrade.

These ratings were affected:

Mercantil, C.A., Banco Universal

  -- Local currency deposit rating downgraded to Ba3, from Ba2

Banco de Venezuela

  -- Local currency deposit rating downgraded to Ba2, from Ba1

  -- Bank financial strength rating of D-, confirmed with a
     negative outlook


* VENEZUELA: Allows Central Bank to Trade PDVSA Bonds
-----------------------------------------------------
Telmo Almada and Jose Orozco at Bloomberg News report that the
Venezuelan government authorized the central bank to buy and sell
bonds issued by Petroleos de Venezuela, setting the stage for
increased intervention to strengthen the bolivar.

The report relates that Asdrubal Oliveros, a director at Caracas-
based consulting firm Ecoanalitica, said that with the initiative,
the central bank may become the biggest player in the local
currency market.  The central bank may use 10 percent to 15
percent of its international reserves of $32 billion to buy PDVSA
bonds, increasing the supply of dollars in the local market, Mr.
Oliveros added.  “The main objective of this law reform is to
allow the government to take control of the parallel foreign
exchange market,” the report quoted Mr. Oliveros as saying.

According to the report, Mr. Oliveros said that the central bank’s
participation in the currency market may allow the government to
maintain the bolivar at about 5.5 per dollar.

Central bank President Nelson Merentes, the report recalls, said
on October 8 that his target for the unofficial rate is a
difference of no more than 60 percent.
Currency Restrictions

Venezuelans, the report says, can purchase the securities locally
with bolivars and re-sell them abroad in international markets for
dollars.  Under restrictions imposed by President Hugo Chavez in
2003, Bloomberg News recalls, the government controls the sale of
dollars at the official exchange rate of 2.15.  Venezuelans buy
dollars in the parallel unregulated market when they can’t get
government authorization to purchase them at the official rate,
the report adds.

* VENEZUELA: Ecopetrol & Chevron Reduce Gas Exports in Late Oct.
----------------------------------------------------------------
Ecopetrol SA and its partner U.S.-based Chevron Corp., in late
October, reduced shipments of natural gas to Venezuela to about 70
million cubic feet a day, from about 220 million cubic feet a day
as demand in Colombia increased, Inti Landauro at Dow Jones
Newswires reports, citing an unnamed Ecopetrol spokeswoman.  The
report relates that the spokeswoman said that the reduction of gas
exports is independent of the diplomatic clash between the
governments of both countries.

According to the report, the demand for natural gas increased in
Colombia as several gas-fired power-generation plants boosted
electricity production as a drought reduced the amount of water
available in hydro-power plants' reservoirs.  Both companies
export natural gas from the Ballena gas field on in northern
Colombia to Maracaibo in Venezuela through a 224-kilometer
pipeline.

Petroleos de Venezuela SA, the report notes, spent US$467 million
to build the pipeline to ship Colombian gas to Maracaibo.  The
report relates that Venezuela needs to import natural gas, despite
its own huge reserves, because it lacks the infrastructure and
sufficient investment in its natural gas output.

Dow Jones Newswires points out that PDVSA Vice President Asdrubal
Chavez said the company was prepared to face a possible reduced
supply of natural gas.

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
