METROGAS SA: Moody's Assigns 'Caa3' Global Scale Ratings
--------------------------------------------------------
Moody's has assigned Caa3 global scale ratings and Caa3.ar
national scales ratings to Metrogas S.A. up to US$600 million MTM
Program.  The outlook for all the ratings is negative.

The Caa3/Caa3.ar ratings consider that Metrogas' liquidity
continues to be extremely weak relative to its debt maturity
profile.  In spite of the announced provisional tariff increase in
late 2008, Metrogas' tariffs have remained frozen and inflation
continues to erode margins and cash generation.  In addition, the
peso devaluation has exacerbated the liquidity challenges by
increasing the amount of interest payments and principal payments
associated with Metrogas' dollar denominated debt.

While the announced provisional tariff increase -- if implemented
-- would help to alleviate Metrogas' tight liquidity position,
cash generation for debt service is expected to remain weak.
Metrogas' maturity profile, with debt repayments commencing in
June this year, continues to be burdensome and any alternative
external source of financing is questionable.

Moody's observes that the company recently announced that it had
appointed Barclays as financial advisor in order to analyze
Metrogas' financial alternatives ahead of the company's upcoming
debt maturities.

Metrogas' Caa3.ar rating primarily reflects Metrogas' tight
liquidity and expected weak financial performance, as well as its
regulatory risk profile.  The Caa3.ar is a National Scale Rating
(NSR) and it is intended to measure the relative creditworthiness
among debt issues and issuers within a country, enabling market
participants to better differentiate between relative risks.  NSRs
in Argentina are designated by the ".ar" suffix.  NSRs differ from
global scale ratings in that they are not globally comparable with
the full universe of Moody's rated entities, but can only be
compared with other rated entities within the same country.

The negative outlook reflects Metrogas' weak liquidity profile,
Moody's expectations for continued poor internal cash generation
and the lack of a clear strategy concerning 2010 debt maturities.

If license renegotiations with the government continue to be
delayed and the company is unable to execute a strategy to improve
its cash generation in relation to its current debt burden in
anticipation of the scheduled debt payments in 2010, the ratings
could be further downgraded.

Although unlikely in the short term, a rating upgrade would
require real progress in license renegotiation with the government
and a tariff framework that would allow Metrogas to materially
improve its cash flow coverage metrics from current levels.
Quantitatively, an upgrade would require consistently positive
levels of free cash flow in relation to debt and adjusted total
debt to EBITDA of below 3.5 times.

Metrogas is an Argentinean gas distribution utility, with
operations in the capital city and the southern area of Buenos
Aires Province, which is one of the biggest concession areas in
terms of number of clients and annual revenues of ARS 780 million.
Metrogas is controlled by GASA, a holding company that is
controlled by BG (54.7%; A2 Stable) and YPF (45.3; Ba1, Sta.).

GOL LINHAS: Doesn't See Domestic Price War in 2010
--------------------------------------------------
GOL Linhas Aereas Inteligentes SA sees little prospect of another
price war erupting on the domestic market, Alastair Stewart at Dow
Jones Newswires reports, citing Airline Executive Constantino de
Oliveira.  "The airlines are looking to expand but they also have
responsibilities to their shareholders. . . .  We don't see a
repeat of the irrational scenario in the third quarter of last
year," the report quoted Mr. Oliveira as saying.

According to the report, the growth of smaller airlines in 2009
led by Azul Linhas Aereas Brasileiras, unsettled GOL Linhas and
market leader TAM SA, which together command more than 80% of
local traffic.  The report relates that as a result, GOL Linhas
saw passenger revenue kilometers rise 38% in the fourth quarter of
2009 from the year before, but the average amount paid by each
passenger to travel one kilometer, or yield, fell 29% to BRL0.181
Brazilian.  GOL Linhas is offering yield guidance of BRL0.195 to
BRL0.210 for the whole of 2010, the report says.

Dow Jones Newswires notes that Brazil's economy weathered the
recent global slump better than most, driven by strong consumer
demand.  The report relates that the airline benefited from this
and expects to continue to benefit in 2010, when it expects demand
for air travel to rise in a range of 12.5% to 18%.

Meanwhile, the report adds Mr. Oliveira said that GOL will be
selective in its expansion plans.  In 2009, the report recalls,
GOL expanded capacity by 7%, while the rest of the industry grew
22%.

                        About GOL Linhas

Based in Sao Paulo, Brazil, GOL Intelligent Airlines aka GOL
Linhas Areas Inteligentes S.A. -- http://www.voegol.com.br/--

As of March 8, 2010, the company continues to carry Fitch Ratings
"B" long-term issuer default ratings.  The company also continues

INDEPENDENCIA ALIMENTOS: Moody's Puts 'Caa3' Corp. Family Rating
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a provisional (P) Caa3 local
currency Corporate Family Rating to Independencia Alimentos S.A
and also a (P) Caa1 foreign currency rating to its proposed
guaranteed US$ 150 million senior secured notes maturing in 2015.
The rating outlook is stable.

The proposed US$ 150 million senior secured notes will be issued
by Independencia International Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of
Independencia, and these bonds will be unconditionally and
irrevocably guaranteed by Independencia.  Proceeds from the
proposed issuance will be used to fund working capital and general
corporate purposes, payment to suppliers and transaction fees and
expenses.  The notes will be secured by a first priority lien on
substantially all assets of the issuer and the note guarantors,
including chattel mortgage ("alienacao fiduciaria") on all of the
company's current property, plant and real estate.  The ratings
are assigned on a provisional basis pending the successful exit
from bankruptcy and completion of the planned note offering.

"Independencia's Caa3 CFR rating is largely based on the company's
perceived challenges to operate post bankruptcy at a very high
starting leverage, as measured by Total Debt to EBITDA, of over 28
times by the end of 2010.  In order for the company to delever, it
will rely on Independencia's ability to increase production
capacity, as per its business plan, by reopening plants that are
currently idle to grow revenues and EBITDA.  Additionally, the
Caa3 CFR rating for Independencia factors in the company's very
tight headroom under its financial maintenance covenants.
Finally, the Caa3 CFR rating also incorporates the company's
smaller size and less diversified product portfolio relative to
peers with a concentration on fresh beef sales, which tend to be a
more commoditized product and susceptible to animal disease and
food safety issues that may disrupt its export sales" explained
Moody's VP Senior Analyst, Soummo Mukherjee.

"On the other hand, these negative factors are partially mitigated
by the positive fundamentals of the Brazilian beef industry, which
include, among other factors, the fact that Brazil has the largest
commercial cattle herd and that the cattle in Brazil is grass-fed,
virtually eliminating the risk of BSE (mad-cow disease) and
producing the low fat and chemical-free beef quality that most of
its importing countries prefer.  Additionally, Brazilian beef
producers also enjoy one of the most competitive cost structures
in the world, largely driven by Brazil's lower costs for land and
labor, compared to other major global producers.  Independencia
also benefits from its proprietary refrigerated storage space at
the Port of Santos, one of Brazil's principal ports through which
approximately 70% of Brazilian beef exports are exported, its
logistics infrastructure that provides the company with the
ability to preserve the quality and increase the shelf-life of its
products.  The company is restructuring many of its internal
administrative and production controls intended to help the
company achieve its projected results.

The proposed US$ 150 million guaranteed senior secured notes were
rated (P) Caa1, or two notches above the company's (P) Caa3 CFR,
due to the expected high recovery of this debt instrument arising
from its first priority lien on substantially all assets of the
issuer and the note guarantors, including chattel mortgage on all
current property, plant and real estate to the creditors.
Creditors secured by chattel mortgage have full priority and are
payable with preference over existing pre-petition claims and even
post-petition, super-priority claims, including ACC claims.  That
is because the assets transferred to the relevant creditor under a
chattel mortgage are not considered property of the estate.
Therefore these assets will not be subject to subsequent
liquidation and payment of the existing claims, pursuant to a
ranking of priorities.  As of December 31, 2009, and pro-forma for
the new transaction, 100% of Independencia's outstanding debt
would be junior to the proposed issuance in the priority of
claims.  The proceeds will be used in helping the company exit
from bankruptcy with the payment to suppliers, and to fund working
capital and general corporate purposes for the reopening of idle
plants.

The judicial recovery plan in summary established the change in
the organizational structure merging the companies of the
Independencia group, altering the corporate governance structure
so that the controlling partners no longer hold executive
positions.  Furthermore, Independencia's former CFO, Tobias
Bremmer, was promoted to CEO, while several board committees were
set-up generally improving Independencia's corporate governance
standards.  The judicial plan also granted special terms and
conditions for debt repayments including the haircut of 50% on all
unsecured debt, termination of some lease/FINAME agreements
without penalties, renegotiated payment dates and terms of secured
debt.  The plan, however, is dependent on receiving the exit
financing and/or capital increase.

Independencia is currently slaughtering around 1,200 heads of
cattle per day.  The new bond issuance is aimed at allowing the
company to jump-start several plants so that the company can
gradually increase production to slaughter 3,475 heads per day by
the end of 2010 and 6,500 heads/day by the end of 2012.  Deboning
capacity is also aimed to increase to 493 tons per day at the end
of 2010 and 1,290 tons per day by the end of 2012.  Finally,
leather production capacity should increase to 6,000 hides per day
in 2010 and dried beef production capacity of 50 tons per day in
2010.

Independencia's commercial strategy targets the specific demands
of the domestic and export beef and leather markets.  This is only
possible due to its relatively smaller size compared to larger
domestic players.  Therefore, it tries to customize products to
specific market demands in order to add value and increase the
average sales price of its products.  One of its most successful
strategies is the production of customized, "private label"
products, which they produce and package and its customers sell to
the final consumers with their own brand name.  Independencia also
offers products to meet the needs of certain niche markets, such
as kosher, halal and organic beef.  In the domestic market they
target regional retail sales that have better margins.

The stable outlook is based on Moody's expectation that
Independencia will secure the US$ 150 million exit finance notes
and gradually reopen its idle plants and deleverage with the
increased EBITDA generation.

Upward pressure on Independencia's Caa3 rating would require a
track record of successful execution of the reorganization plan,
and steadily improving debt protection metrics while maintaining
adequate liquidity and compliance with its bond maintenance
covenants.  Quantitatively, upward pressure is likely to arise if
Total Debt / EBITDA falls towards 9.0x before the end of 2011 and
CFO moves towards positive territory.

Downward pressure on Independencia's rating or outlook is likely
to result due to a failure or significant delays to reopen its
idle plants as per the company's business plan, adverse market
conditions, or increased competition, that negatively impact
Independencia's ability to improve EBITDA and meet the financial
covenants established in the new bond indenture.  Similarly, a
deterioration in the company's liquidity situation would put
downward pressure on Independencia's current rating.

Moody's assigned these ratings:

  - Global local currency scale corporate family rating: (P) Caa3

  - Guaranteed US$ 150 million in senior secured notes due in
    2015: (P) Caa1

Moody's last rating action on Independencia was on March 2nd,
2009, when Moody's lowered its ratings to Ca, which were
subsequently withdrawn following the announcement that the company
had filed for bankruptcy.

Independencia is 78.2% owned by the Russo family, with the
remaining 21.8% owned by BNDESPAR.

Headquartered in Cajamar, Sao Paulo, Brazil, Independencia
currently only has 2 of its 11 slaughtering plants operating.  The
company also has deboning and leather facilities.  Additionally,
Independencia has capacity to produce 1,700 tons of dry meat (beef
jerky) per month and to warehouse 8,775 tons of beef.

* CHILE: S&P Puts Ratings on Entities on CreditWatch Negative
-------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it has placed its
ratings on three Chilean entities on CreditWatch with negative
implications pending further analysis of the financial and
operational consequences of the Feb. 27 earthquake in Central
Chile.

As S&P stated in its media release, "Massive Earthquake Should
Have No Immediate Effect On Overall Credit Quality In Chile",
published March 4, 2010, on RatingsDirect, S&P is monitoring
developments in Chile to gauge the situation companies face in
dealing with the effects of the earthquake on their assets and
operations.

In the case of steel producer CAP S.A. ('BBB-'), S&P believes that
damage to its productive assets may delay its ability to improve
credit metrics as S&P had expected for the current rating level.
S&P thinks urban toll-road operator, Sociedad Concesionaria
Vespucio Norte Express S.A. (senior secured notes: SPUR 'BB'), may
experience a prolonged period of operating with part of it highway
closed to traffic, which could threaten its ability to generate
the strong revenue growth needed to meet S&P's original estimates
after the toll road initially attracted low volumes of traffic.
S&P believes Petropower Energia Ltda. (senior secured notes:
'BBB') -- a delayed coker, hydrotreater, and cogeneration facility
-- faces increased credit risks because of its single-asset
nature, the need to meet minimum performance standards to have the
right to bill its offtaker, and its need to finance reconstruction
before it can collect insurance claims.

As mentioned in S&P's March 4 release, the situation in Chile is
evolving, and there have been several aftershocks, including a 7.0
tremor yesterday in Rancagua, a city 87 kilometers south of the
capital Santiago.  While S&P believes reconstruction will not
ultimately affect the country's creditworthiness, the damage is
extensive, and S&P think there may be some bottlenecks in
rebuilding activity and processing insurance claims.

S&P expects to resolve the CreditWatch during the next 90 days as
more-accurate information becomes available regarding the extent
of damage and state of repairs, insurance coverage, and the impact
of the quake on these firms' financial risk profiles, among other
factors.  Based on any such information and its implications on
the credit quality of its rated Chilean portfolio, S&P may take
further rating actions as the situation warrants.

* HONDURAS: IMF to Visit Country to Asses '09 Economic Performance
------------------------------------------------------------------
Mario Garza, the International Monetary Fund resident
representative in Tegucigalpa, issued the following statement:

"At the request of the authorities, an IMF mission will visit
Honduras during March 15-25.  The goal will be to assess, jointly
with the authorities, the economic performance during 2009; review
the outlook for 2010, focusing on the public finances and the
external sector; and discuss policy plans to resume growth and
deal with the challenges faced by the economy.  As is customary,
the mission will issue a brief statement at the end of its visit."

* COSTA RICA: IDB Approves US$3MM for Development in Puntarenas
---------------------------------------------------------------
The Inter-American Development Bank approved a US$3 million grant
from the IDB-Global Environment Facility to help preserve marine
and coastal ecosystems in the Golfo de Nicoya and Pacífico Sur
areas.

The grant will help conserve important biodiversity, maintain the
provision of crucial ecosystem services, and provide a basis for
sustainable socio-economic development through tourism, artisanal
fishing and other activities in nearly 800,000 hectares of
multiple-use marine areas on Costa Rica's Pacific coast.

Various governmental agencies will provide an additional $8.8
million in local counterpart funds, taking the total funding for
the four-year project in the province of Puntarenas to US$11.8
million.

The financing will promote the integrated planning and management
of marine and coastal ecosystems, strengthening the marine areas'
governance structures, promoting sustainable private sector
practices, and improving information.

The expansion of tourism, the depletion of fishing stocks (most
notably in the Gulf of Nicoya, where most of the country's
estimated 11,000 fishers operate), and land-based and coastal
contamination have put marine areas under heavy pressure.

IDB said that to tackle these problems and promote an integrated
management of resources, the project will finance both local- and
national-level activities, with a particular focus on
strengthening the management structures and collaboration between
key actors in the project areas.  The principal expected result
will be an improved governance of the two project areas, which
will allow for science-based, integrated and sustainable
management of these valuable marine resources.

Other results that will contribute to this overarching goal are
the expansion of responsibly managed fishing areas from 27,000 ha
to 150,000 ha, the training of 16 fishing communities and 20
leading tourism entrepreneurs in sustainable management practices
for their respective sectors, and the implementation of
alternative sustainable livelihood initiatives in at least 10
coastal communities.

The project will be executed by MarViva, a regional not-for-profit
organization specialized in marine and costal resource management.

JAMAICA PUBLIC SERVICE: Regulator Rejects JM$4-Billion Claim
------------------------------------------------------------
Jamaica Public Service Company Ltd's claim to recover more than
JM$4 billion from its customers has been rejected by the Office of
Utilities Regulation, Jamaica Gleaner reports.  The report relates
that the claim had been filed by the company through its z-factor
provision of the All-Island Electricity Licence of 2001, in
respect to payments made to its workers following a
reclassification exercise completed in 2002.

According to the report, JPSCO had proposed that consumers pay
JM$4.2 billion over a two-year period by adding 6.75 cents per
kilowatt-hour charge to the bills of all its customers.  The
report relates that the company had recently paid out JM$2.3
billion in mid-2008 to workers and ex-employees after the Supreme
Court and the Court of Appeal has upheld a ruling by the
Industrial Disputes Tribunal in favor of the workers over a
reclassification exercise.

The Gleaner notes that after paying the said amount, the company
submitted a claim in 2009 as part of its application for rate
review to recover what it said was the cash flow impact associated
with the award.  However, the report points out, OUR declared that
both matters should be separated and that the application with
regard to the wage claim should be treated on a stand-alone basis.

The OUR, the report points out, said the company's claim did not
qualify under the z-factor provision, since the costs incurred
were as a consequence of managerial decisions, as the JPS had
agreed with the labor unions in 2000 to embark on the
reclassification exercise.  JPSCO had aggravated its costs by
submitting the IDT's ruling in favor of the workers to the Supreme
Court, in addition to filing an appeal in the Court of Appeal, OUR
added.

                            About JPSCO

Headquartered in Kingston, Jamaica -- https://www.jpsco.com/ --

utility company and the sole distributor of electricity in

                           *     *     *

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
March 12, 2010, RadioJamaica said that the multi-billion dollar
show down between the Jamaica Public Service and the three unions
-- BITU, NWU, and UCASE -- representing workers at the company has
entered the penultimate stage before the Industrial Disputes
Tribunal.  The report related that the IDT heard testimony from
the Chairman of JPSCO, Tommy Fukuda who was called as the last
witness.  According to the report, Mr. Fukuda maintained that
JPSCO has paid the US$2.3 billion it owed the workers following
the 2001 job reclassification exercise.  However, the report
related, the three unions argued that the company still owed the
workers an additional JM$500 to 600 million dollars in
retroactive, overtime and redundancy payments.

AXTEL SAB: Successfully Prices US$190MM Reopening of 2019 Notes
---------------------------------------------------------------
Axtel, S.A.B. de C.V. has successfully priced a US$190 million
add-on of its 9.0% Senior Unsecured Notes due 2019, sold pursuant
to Rule 144A and Regulation S, originally issued on September 22,
2009, in an amount of US$300 million.  The additional notes will
be issued at a price of 102.5% per 100.0% of principal amount and
will bear a yield to maturity of 8.609%.

The international offering is expected to close on March 22, 2010,
subject to customary closing conditions.  The proceeds of the
transaction will be used:

   (i) to prepay principal amount of indebtedness outstanding
       under our 2012 Term Loan Facility,
  (ii) to repay approximately US$32 million of short-term
       indebtedness,
(iii) to fund approximately US$30 million of principal
       installments on indebtedness that will become due during
       2010, and
  (iv) for general corporate purposes, capital investments and
       working capital requirements.

These additional notes and the guarantees thereof have not been
and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act
of 1933, as amended, and they may not be offered or sold in the
United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from
the registration requirements of the Securities Act.  This
announcement is for informational purposes only and is not an
offer to purchase or a solicitation of an offer to purchase.

                           *     *     *

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
March 10, 2010, Moody's Investors Service downgraded the Corporate
Family and senior unsecured debt ratings of Axtel, S.A.B. de C.V.
to Ba3 from Ba2.  The downgrade reflects Moody's expectations that
Axtel's operating performance is likely to remain pressured given
the competitive environment and that it will be difficult for the
company to reverse the negative free cash flow generation in the
near term due to the need to maintain high capital expenditures.
The outlook is stable.


AXTEL SAB: S&P Affirms 'BB' Rating on Senior Unsecured Notes
------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings services said that it has affirmed its
'BB-' rating on Axtel S.A.B. de C.V.'s senior unsecured notes
following the proposed addition of $190 million to its
$300 million in 144A/Reg S long-term senior unsecured notes due in
2019.  The notes have a recovery rating of '3', indicating S&P's
expectation of meaningful (50%-70%) recovery in the event of a
payment default.  The company plans to use proceeds from the
proposed notes offering to refinance around $167 million debt
obligations and fund working capital requirements.  The reopening
of the notes should give the company additional financial
flexibility and will extend the average life of its debt.

The ratings on Axtel reflect its position as the (distant) second-
largest fixed-line integrated telecommunications company in
Mexico, strong competition from other fixed-line operators --
especially Telefonos de Mexico S.A.B. de C.V., mobile telephony
and cable operators, and Axtel's potential participation in the
consolidation of the Mexican telecommunications industry, which
could increase leverage.  Axtel's geographic diversity within
Mexico, and flexible and advanced network with several access
technologies, support its rating.

During 2009, revenue growth suffered from a combination of a lower
number of lines in service as a result of less-favorable economic
conditions, its promotional offerings and pricing strategies, and
the reduction of its contracted traffic with Nextel.
Nevertheless, S&P believes that a more-favorable economic outlook
and the company's WiMax network, which is now working at full
capacity, should continue to bring it net additions over the next
few quarters and moderate revenue growth in 2010.

Axtel's financial performance was weaker that expected, but
remains adequate for its current rating.  For the 12 months ended
Dec. 31, 2009, Axtel posted total debt-to-EBITDA and funds from
operations-to-total debt ratios of 2.6 x and 29.5%, respectively.
S&P expects similar key financial ratios through the end of 2010.

Despite the significant reduction in capital expenditures Axtel's
free operating cash flow was negative during 2009.  Nevertheless,
S&P believes that Axtel's liquidity is manageable and should
improve as a result of the refinancing.  Cash and equivalents as
of Dec. 31, 2009, totaled Mexican pesos (MXN) 1.402 billion and
its short-term debt totaled MXN1.223 billion.  S&P expects Axtel
to post slightly negative FOCF in 2010.  Capital expenditures
should be about MXN3 billion for 2010.  However, the company could
need an additional MXN400 million if it launches video services or
participates in Mexican state-owned power company Comision Federal
de Electricidad's dark fiber auction.

CEMEX SAB: Venezuela Mulls Action Against Firm
----------------------------------------------
Venezuela is considering legal action to force CEMEX, S.A.B. de
C.V. to return ships it removed from the country during a
nationalization dispute, Marianna Parraga at Reuters reports,
citing Venezuela Oil Minister Rafael Ramirez.  The report relates
an international court earlier this month rejected a request by
Cemex to protect it from further expropriations by Venezuela after
the 2008 takeover of its Venezuelan assets.

According to the report, Washington-based International Center for
Settlement of Investment Disputes said it could not take
"preventive measures" in favor of Cemex.  The report relates
Cemex had asked the ICSID to stop Venezuela from taking control of
three Panama-based cement vessels that were under the control of
Cemex's Venezuelan operations before the August 2008
nationalization.

The company, the report notes, has repeatedly said it is open to
talks with Venezuela and that it will push ahead with arbitration
at the ICSID.

Reuters says Cemex SAB is seeking US$1.3 billion in compensation
for the seizure of its assets.  The report relates that the
government of President Hugo Chavez has offered about a third of
that.

Cemex SAB, the report points out, hopes to use compensation from
Venezuela to reduce its US$15 billion debt load as it struggles
with slumping U.S. and European cement volumes due to the global
recession and a collapse in construction activity worldwide.

President Chavez, the report recalls, nationalized Cemex's
Venezuelan assets, accusing the company of causing pollution that
was harming local residents. The report notes that Cemex has
denies any wrongdoing.

                        About Cemex SAB

CEMEX, S.A.B. de C.V. is a Mexican corporation, a holding company
of entities which main activities are oriented to the construction
industry, through the production, marketing, distribution and sale
of cement, ready-mix concrete, aggregates and other construction
materials.  CEMEX is a public stock corporation with variable
capital (S.A.B. de C.V.) organized under the laws of the United
Mexican States, or Mexico.

                           *     *     *

As of March 8, 2010, the company continues to carry Standard and
Poor's "B" LT Issuer credit ratings.  The company also continues
to carry Fitch rating's "B" LT Issuer Default ratings and "B+"
Currency LT Debt ratings.
Cemex is seeking $1.3 billion in compensation for the seizure of
its assets. The government of President Hugo Chavez has offered
about a third of that.

The flare-up in relations between Venezuela and Cemex does not
bode well for the Monterrey-based cement maker's efforts to win
back money it badly needs to pay off debt, analysts say.

Cemex hopes to use compensation from Venezuela to reduce its $15
billion debt load as it struggles with slumping U.S. and European
cement volumes due to the global recession and a collapse in
construction activity worldwide. Cemex took on big debts to
finance its acquisition of Australia's Rinker in 2007, just before
the U.S. housing crisis broke.


HIPOTECARIA SU: S&P Downgrades Counterparty Credit Rating to 'B'
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it lowered its global
and Mexican national scale counterparty credit and senior
unsecured debt ratings on Mexico-based mortgage and construction
lender Hipotecaria Su Casita S.A. de C.V. SOFOM E.N.R. to 'B' from
'BB-' and to 'mxBBB-/mxA-3' from 'mxBBB+/mxA-2', respectively.
The outlooks are negative.

"The downgrades reflect the fact that the plans that the company
had outlined to boost its capital base and improve its current
deteriorated asset quality haven't materialized as S&P expected,"
said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Arturo Sanchez.  "As a
result, HSC's financial flexibility and overall financial profile
have weakened further."

Still, the ratings continue to gain support from the debt-
substituting agreement among Mexican government-related entity
Sociedad Hipotecaria Federal S.N.C., commercial banks,
underwriters, and six mortgage companies including HSC, signed in
May 2009, which should enable the company to refinance 2010 debt
maturities.

The ratings also reflect the company's large market participation
and a national diversified footprint within the weakened Mexican
mortgage finance sector.


TV AZTECA: Faces More Legal Fines From Government Regulators
------------------------------------------------------------
TV Azteca SA de CV has seen its legal woes go from bad to worse in
recent weeks as the Federal Electoral Institute begins to hand
down exponentially larger fines for failing to run legally
mandated political spots and the Transportation and Communications
Secretariat is ordering the company to pull the plug on its
digital terrestrial platform, Hi-TV, Variety News reports.

According to the report, IFE brouhaha began two years ago with a
new law that was designed to level the playing field between
political parties by requiring broadcasters to air spots for free
in primetime.  The report relates that Azteca failed to comply
and, early last year, IFE hit Azteca with three fines totaling
about US$450,000.  In July, the report recalls, IFE handed out a
then-historic US$1.7 million fine followed by a US$5.5 million
fine in January.  On Feb. 24, IFE issued a fine of US$9.6 million
for failing to run a further 16,092 spots, the report notes.

Azteca, the report points out, has so far staved off paying the
fines by lodging a variety of appeals, but, it will hit Azteca's
bottom line if it ever has to pay them.

Variety News relates that the company is also fighting to prove
the legality of Hi-TV.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
March 2, 2010, Dow Jones Newswires said that TV Azteca planed to
contest a government fine and ban on its digital television
service Hi-TV, arguing that the service has been authorized by the
telecommunications regulator.  The report related that the
Communications and Transport Ministry (SCT) fined TV Azteca about
MXN4.5 million (US$350,000) for offering the Hi-TV service without
the proper concession, and ordered the transmissions to be halted.
According to the report, the launch last year of Hi-TV prompted
protests from the cable-TV industry and, in May, the Federal
Telecommunications Commission (Cofetel) recommended that the
ministry initiate proceedings against TV Azteca for possibly
violating terms of its broadcast concession.  However, the report
related, in December, Cofetel issued a finding that Hi-TV was a
free broadcast service and doesn't violate the concession.

                           About TV Azteca

TV Azteca SA de CV is one of the two largest producers of Spanish-
language television programming in the world, operating two
national television networks in Mexico -- Azteca 13 and Azteca 7

new broadcast television network focused on the rapidly growing US
Hispanic market, and Todito, an Internet portal for North American
Spanish speakers.

senior unsecured debt rating.

PETROLEOS DE VENEZUELA: Instructs Contractors to Use 2007 CBA
-------------------------------------------------------------
Contractors that provide services to Petroleos de Venezuela are
applying the 2007 collective bargaining agreement in the
recruitment of staff, EL Universal News reports.

According to the report, citing a company statement, PDVSA
instructed the contractors to implement in their bidding process,
particularly in the labor costs, the former collective bargaining
agreement.  The report relates PDVSA argued that the new oil labor
agreement "must be approved by the Cabinet.  Therefore, the oil
industry is still working formally with the old collective
bargaining agreement until the approval of the new instrument."

However, the report notes, despite the request, PDVSA is applying
to its payroll the new collective bargaining agreement 2009-2011,
which is already in force, after it was approved by the Ministry
of Labor.  EL Universal News says that the agreement executed by
PDVSA and the Federation of Venezuelan Workers of theOil, Gas and
Related Sectors (Futpv) covers both in-house and outsourced staff.

                           About PDVSA

Petroleos de Venezuela -- http://www.pdvsa.com/-- is Venezuela's

LATAM: IDB Fund Seeks New Sustainable Tourism Projects in Region
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Multilateral Investment Fund will approve as much as
US$5 million in grants this year to finance as many as 10 new
sustainable tourism projects in Latin America and the Caribbean.

The FOMIN, an autonomous fund of the Inter-American Development
Bank that supports projects for small and microenterprises, will
offer grants to finance the creation of small tourism business
networks, train entrepreneurs in the region to offer high-quality
services and market their services.

The MIF is working closely with The National Geographic Society
and Ashoka Changemakers to launch a new call for proposals in the
second quarter of the year.  The FOMIN will seek proposals in
several categories including ones that are related to tourism and
climate change; information technology and market access; and the
development of sustainable tourism in the Caribbean.

"Latin America and the Caribbean is one of world's most culturally
and environmentally diverse," said Santiago Soler, who heads the
sustainable tourism cluster at the FOMIN.  "We want to help
countries take full advantage of tourism in a way that will
preserve their cultural heritage and environment while ensuring
that small entrepreneurs run a profitable and high-quality
business."

Tourism accounts for 11% of the world's gross domestic product, 7%
of all job opportunities in Latin America and the Caribbean and it
is among the top five sources for foreign currency for poor
nations.  It is a labor-intensive industry that offers an
important opportunity to increase employment and reduce poverty,
particularly among developing nations, Mr. Soler said.

The FOMIN began investing systematically on sustainable tourism in
2003 when it selected 25 projects in the region with the primary
goal of improving competitiveness of business and developing or
creating new tourism destinations in which small businesses and
the local community could participate.  Interest has been so
strong from countries in the region that the FOMIN is now in the
process of selecting new proposals.  As many as 350 proposals were
submitted in last's year selected process, Mr. Soler said.

Over the past seven years, the MIF has financed a wide range of
projects that helped improve the quality of services by small
hotels in Mexico's Tequila Trail destination, develop a
sustainable supply of products for the tourism industry in
Galápagos and create and market tourism destinations in Colombia
and Brazil.

The FOMIN teams up with local partners, local governments,
nongovernment organizations and industry groups, for example, to
implement the project and offer training.  Thanks to the project,
small entrepreneurs learn tools that will allow them to improve
the quality of their services and better manage their business and
take advantage of networking to market each their services and
products.

"Our role is to help plant the seed," Mr. Soler said. "Our local
and international partners, together with the local entrepreneurs
and communities, have to ensure the work that has been done is
preserved and expanded long after the IDB's role has finished."

                Partnerships With Corporations

During 2010 a special emphasis will be made to incorporate
partners from the corporate world that are directly or indirectly
related with the tourism sector.  In February, the FOMIN organized
a partnership summit at the National Geographic's headquarters in
Washington DC.

The event sought to narrow the gap between the development world,
initiatives related to corporate social responsibility and
corporate business strategies to identify commercial opportunities
and achieve sustainable development, according to Mr. Soler.

"We are working closely with companies such as Microsoft, Amadeus,
Google and Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria (BBVA), and we hope to
have targeted competitions with active participation of selected
corporate partners in 2010," said Mr. Soler.

                            ***********

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
