AUTOPISTAS DEL: Debt Offer Fails to Lure Enough Creditors
---------------------------------------------------------
Drew Benson and Rodrigo Orihuela at Bloomberg News report that
Autopistas del Sol SA is struggling to drum up creditor support
for its restructuring plan after months of negotiations.

According to the report, the company extended its swap offer for a
ninth time, eight months after saying it was halting payments on
the dollar-denominated bonds because government restrictions on
toll-rate increases led to a "progressive deterioration" of its
finances.  The report relates that Autopistas del Sol originally
sought to conclude the debt exchange by February.

Bloomberg News notes that the company said participation in its
exchange offer reached 92.5% as of July 16, below a 96% target
needed to avoid a courtroom settlement.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
June 24, 2010, Dow Jones Newswires said that Autopistas del Sol
again extended the closing date for a restructuring offer to
July 16, 2010, from June 17, 2010, as many creditors continue to
turn up their noses at the deal.  The report related that the
offer was first made in January, and has been extended several
times.  The report noted that the company is trying to get at
least two-thirds of its bondholders to sign onto the restructuring
proposal, which it hopes will allow the company to trim its
liabilities and avoid bankruptcy.  The report recalled that Ausol
del Sol failed to make a US$9 million interest payment Nov. 23,
2010, resulting to a default on its US$307 million debt and
leading the government to step in to audit and monitor the
company's debt restructuring. Ausol del Sol suffered last year due
to lower traffic levels, increasing operational costs and a
devaluation of the peso, the report added.

                     About Autopistas del Sol

Autopistas del Sol S.A. operates and maintains motorways in
Argentina.  The company runs part of the Pan-American highway as
toll concession.

                           *     *     *

As of June 23, 2010, the company continues to carry Standard and
Poor's "D" long-term foreign issuer credit rating.  The company
also continues to carry S&P's "D" national long-term issuer credit
rating.


BIS-AY SRL: Creditors' Proofs of Debt Due on September 9
--------------------------------------------------------
Maria Cristina Salzano, the court-appointed trustee for Bis-Ay
SRL's bankruptcy proceedings, will be verifying creditors' proofs
of claim until September 9, 2010.

Ms. Salzano will present the validated claims in court as
individual reports.  The National Commercial Court of First
Instance No. 25 in Buenos Aires, with the assistance of Clerk
No. 49, will determine if the verified claims are admissible,
taking into account the trustee's opinion, and the objections and
challenges that will be raised by the company and its creditors.

Inadmissible claims may be subject to appeal in a separate
proceeding known as an appeal for reversal.

The Trustee can be reached at:

CABLEVISION SA: Fitch Affirms Low-B Issuer Default Ratings
----------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed Cablevision S.A.'s long-term foreign
currency Issuer Default Rating at 'B' and its local currency IDR
at 'B+'.  Fitch has also affirmed the 'B' / RR4 ratings on
Cablevisions' senior unsecured notes.  The Rating Outlook is
Stable.

The issue and Recovery Ratings apply to US$516 million of
outstanding notes as of March 2010:

  -- US$100 million, seven-year bond (2012);
  -- US$235.1 million, 10-year bond (2015);
  -- US$100.4 million, seven-year bond (2013);
  -- US$80.3 million, 10-year bond (2016).

The ratings are supported by the company's solid business position
and strong credit protection measures.  They take into
consideration increasing regulatory risk and political
interference within the media industry.  Other credit concerns
include the lack of revenue diversity and costs pressures derived
from double digit inflation.  Cablevision's FC IDR is capped by
Argentina's country ceiling of 'B', while its Recovery Rating of
'RR4' is constrained by the soft cap of 'RR4' for bonds issued by
Argentine corporates.

As the largest pay TV provider in Argentina, Cablevision's
business proved to be resilient during the recent global economic
downturn.  The company generated US$ 1140 million of revenues and
US$415 million of EBITDA for the LTM ended March 31, 2010.  These
figures compare with US$ 1124 million of revenues and
US$377 million of EBITDA for the LTM ended March 31, 2009.
Cablevision's leading position in the Pay-TV business allowed it
to pass-through costs increases and maintained operating margins
within the range of 33-36% over the last five years, consistent
with those of its peers.  The company's solid business performance
in the midst of an economic crisis was the result of its strategy
of targeting high-quality subscribers, which improved average
revenue per user (ARPU), operating margins, subscriber loyalty and
cash flows, while lowering subscriber churn levels.

The political climate in Argentina continues to present challenges
for media and entertainment companies.  In mid-2009, the
government moved to nationalize the licenses to offer payTV
football.  Other issues faced by the company include the
government's attempt to regulate cable TV prices and to nullify
Cablevision's merger with Multicanal S.A. While many of the
regulatory and legal actions have yet to be implemented or are
undergoing a judicial review, they indicate a challenging and
highly politicized regulatory environment for the industry that is
not expected to cease until 2011.

In terms of the network reach and capacity, Cablevision has
achieved significant synergies from its merger with Multicanal.
The company has network bi-directional capabilities of 56%, and
its investments in dark fiber rings have allowed it to transport
almost 90% of internal traffic through its own network.  Organic
growth has also been increased by Cablevision's efforts to
continuously widen its bandwidth capacity.  Investments during the
last year have been more selective due to recent political actions
and were mainly oriented towards short term returns.

As of March 31, 2010, Cablevision had US$533 million of financial
debt, a reduction from US$784 million as of December 2007.  The
lack of access to local and international debt capital markets by
Cablevision is offset by its low leverage, manageable debt
maturity profile, and strong free cash flow.  Cablevision's
liquidity position is supported by expected free cash flow
generation (after potential dividend payments) and approximately
US$50 million of cash on hand as of March 31, 2010.  During the
remainder of 2010 approximately US$33 million of debt is scheduled
to mature, followed by approximately US$50 million during 2011.
The company's leverage ratio (total debt/EBITDA) for the LTM ended
March 31, 2010 was 1.30 times, which is below its leverage target
of 2.0x.

Fitch projects that the company will generate more than
US$120 million of free cash flow during 2010.  Most of this excess
cash flow will be used to reduce debt.  The company's low leverage
is appropriate due to the continued regulatory and political
threatens against Grupo Clarin and its subsidiaries (Cablevision)
that make it difficult to plan and execute new long-term projects.

Cablevision is the largest MSO in Argentina serving 3.2 million
(including Uruguay and Paraguay) pay TV basic subscribers out of
7 million and 7.5 million of home-passed, showing a high Pay TV
penetration compared to Latin American peers and more than
1 million of internet subscribers.  As of July 19, 2010, Pay-TV
revenues account for almost 80% of total revenues and internet
accounts for the remaining 20% of total revenues.  Cablevision is
indirectly controlled by the Argentine media group Clarin (60%)
and 40% by Fintech Advisory Inc.

METROGAS SA: Judge Opens Bankruptcy Protection Proceedings
----------------------------------------------------------
A Buenos Aires judge has opened bankruptcy proceedings requested
by Metrogas SA, Drew Benson at Bloomberg News reports, citing a
company statement to the stock exchange.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
June 22, 2010, The Financial Times said that Argentina Planning
Ministry said the government will take over administration of
Metrogas SA, after the company said it could not meet its US$20
million debts.  According to Dow Jones Newswires said that
Metrogas SA filed for bankruptcy protection in Argentine court
after it been plagued with debt problems, citing "an urgent need"
to for the government to increase the rates it charges to
customers.  Metrogas SA described the bankruptcy filing
as similar to a Chapter 11 filing in the U.S.  Meanwhile, Dow
Jones Newswires related that the government rejects Metrogas SA'
claim that frozen tariffs have caused its financial problems.  The
company's debt has nothing to do with investments and its problems
date back to the country's default in 2001, the government added,
the report added.

                         About Metrogas SA

Metrogas SA is an Argentinean gas distribution utility, with
operations in the capital city and the southern area of Buenos

Caa3.ar national scales ratings to Metrogas S.A. up to US$600
million MTM Program.  The outlook for all the ratings is negative.

BANCO BMG: Fitch Assigns 'B' Rating on Subordinated Notes
---------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has assigned an expected rating of 'B' to Banco BMG
S.A.'s upcoming issuance of subordinated notes due 2020.

The notes will carry semi-annual payments of interest at a fixed
interest rate to be set at the time of issuance.  The final rating
for the notes is contingent on the receipt of final documentation
conforming to information already received.  The expected rating
of the subordinated notes is notched two notches below the bank's
long-term local currency IDR of 'BB-'.  The notching of the issue
below the bank's IDRs reflects the issue's subordinated status.

BMG's IDRs are driven by its Individual rating, which reflects the
bank's strong franchise in its product niche, lending against
public sector payrolls and beneficiary payments of the Brazilian
social security agency payments, which have contributed to the
bank's good profitability and good asset quality.  At the same
time, the vulnerability to external factors coupled with the
bank's dependence on a sole product and few institutional funding
sources, which constrains its individual rating and could affect
its profitability and loan origination.

The securities are subject to approval from Brazil's Central Bank
to be treated as Tier II instruments for regulatory capital
purposes and will likely be considered as class D securities and
receive 75% equity-credit under Fitch's guidelines regarding its
capital assessment approach, reflecting their high loss absorption
capacity.  BMG has historically maintained capitalization ratios
in line with local peers although continued loan growth, as
anticipated, has put some pressure on its capital ratios; the
regulatory capital stood at 13.9% at the end of the second quarter
of 2010.  The proceeds arising from the subordinated issue will be
used to both strengthen its total capitalization ratio in view of
expected continued growth of its loan operations in 2010/2011 and
will help ease the expected impact on earnings in 2011 of new
accounting requirements related to loan assignment expected for
January 2011.

Under Fitch's criteria, eligible hybrids and other capital
securities (equity-like instruments) can represent up to 30% of
Fitch eligible capital, defined as core capital plus eligible
hybrid debt and other capital securities.  With this issue, these
will stand at about 27% of Fitch eligible capital, which should
stand at a relatively tight ratio of approximately 12.5%.

BMG has its origins back in 1930 and is owned by Mr. Flavio
Pentagna Guimaraes and his family, which directly and indirectly
control approximately 98.9% of total voting shares.  The Guimaraes
family also has interests in real state, agribusiness and food
processing.

48.5% of total sales in the first half, mainly due to the sale on

recorded sales of R$198 million in the first half of 2010.

In the second quarter of 2010, the largest share of contracted
sales, 95.0%, came from projects under construction and launching
phase, while the remaining 5.0% came from the sale of units
already concluded.  Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and the Midwest
accounted for 61.5%, 12.9% and 24.8% of the contracted sales,
respectively.  The Company will continue to focus its operations
on these markets, as well as seeking opportunities in new markets
such as the countryside of the State of Sao Paulo and the South
region of Brazil.

The volume of launches in the first half of 2010 reached R$1.1
billion, a growth of 31.5% when compared to the first half of
2009.  Of this total, the Midwest accounted for 71.6%, Sao Paulo

million or 78.9% referred to residential projects, or 62.7% of the

HIPOTECARIA SU: S&P Junks Counterparty Credit Rating
----------------------------------------------------
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 'CCC'
from 'B-' and to 'mxCCC/mxC' from 'mxBB-/mxB', respectively.  The
outlook is negative.

"The downgrade reflects S&P's expectation that HSC's financial
position will weaken further, with liquidity pressures, weak and
declining adjusted capitalization levels, mounting losses, and
continuous deterioration in its asset quality," said Standard &
Poor's credit analyst Arturo Sanchez.

The company's deteriorating financial standing could cause
significant liquidity pressure.  S&P currently believe that HSC's
liquidity position of Mexican pesos (MXN) 1.6 billion in cash and
liquid securities, plus MXN300 million from its liquidity line
with Sociedad Hipotecaria Federal S.N.C., is sufficient to cover
its 2010 debt maturities of MXN1.6 billion, between banking, long-
term market debt, and warehousing facilities amortizations.
However, during first-quarter 2011 the company has a
MXN1.5 billion debt burden, for which liquidity pressures will be
significant.

S&P expects HSC's adjusted capitalization to deteriorate even
further, placing it in a very fragile financial position.  Despite
the MXN370 million capital injection that occurred on May 4, 2010,
mounting losses resulting from its asset-quality deterioration
continue to weaken HSC's adjusted capital position.  S&P currently
believe that its adjusted total equity-to-adjusted assets ratio
could decline to levels close to zero, or even turn negative by
year-end 2010.  S&P does not expect fresh capital in the coming
quarters while net losses keep rising.  The company has very
limited capability to absorb further losses.

S&P expects mounting losses to remain as the company has not been
able to stabilize its nonperforming assets (past-due loans plus
foreclosed assets).  S&P forecast losses at year-end 2010 higher
than those registered during 2009.  The company has not returned
to profitability during the past several quarters, reflecting
increasing loan-loss provisions, which continue to consume a
significant part of the company's already weak earnings.  This
continues to hurt HSC's internal capital generation.

S&P does not expect the pace of NPAs to stabilize in the short-
term.  S&P's base-case expectation is that NPAs could reach more
than 20% during fourth-quarter 2010.  This level is higher than
the 16.0% registered as of March 2010 and much higher than the
12.9% year-end 2009 level.  S&P's expectation is based on the
impact the economic recession in Mexico has had on the real-estate
industry.  Prolonged unemployment in the economy, lower home take-
outs, and household indebtedness, in S&P's view, will continue to
deteriorate asset quality.  Although HSC's nonperforming loans'
roll rates are beginning to abate, S&P believes the company will
not be able to stabilize its NPAs for the remainder of 2010.  In
addition, HSC's NPA reserve coverage remained low at 41.4%.

The negative outlook reflects the ongoing challenges the company
is facing in the short term in capital, asset quality, earnings,
and liquidity.  S&P will reassess the company's financial standing
during fourth-quarter 2010 to determine its liquidity position in
light of its debt maturities for 2011.


GRUMA SAB: Venezuela Studying Joint Venture With Subsidiary
-----------------------------------------------------------
Venezuela Vice President Elias Jaua said that the country is
studying the possibility of creating a joint venture with Gruma,
S.A.B. de C.V. after President Hugo Chavez said that he intends to
nationalize the company's local unit, Molinos Nacionales CA
(Monaca), in May, Daniel Cancel at Bloomberg News reports, citing
El Nacional.

According to the report, the newspaper said that Mr. Jaua said the
government will analyze Gruma SAB's proposal to create the joint
venture for Monaca.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
May 18, 2010, The Latin America Herald Times said that the
Venezuelan government issued an executive order that authorized
the "forced acquisition" of Monaca, a producer of wheat and corn
flour, rice, oil, oats and other basic food products, several of
them subject to price controls.  According to the report, the
decree stated that the government must ensure the job security of
Monaca's workers, saying they could be employed by the new state-
run entity.  The report related Gruma SAB said that it will demand
that the Venezuelan government provide "prompt, adequate and
effective" compensation for the nationalization of Monaca.  The
report, citing a company statement, added that Monaca has always
complied with Venezuelan law, met customers' demand for its
products in a timely manner and even boosted production by 13
percent since November 2009.

                       About Gruma SAB

Headquartered in Monterrey, Mexico, Gruma, S.A.B. de C.V. --
http://www.gruma.com-- is a corn flour and tortilla producer and
distributor.  The company conducts its U.S. and European
operations principally through its subsidiary, Gruma Corporation,
which manufactures and distributes corn flour, packaged tortillas,
corn chips and related products.  As of Dec. 31, 2007, Gruma held
approximately 8.62 % of the capital stock of Grupo Financiero
Banorte, S.A.B. de C.V.

                         *     *     *

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
May 21, 2010, Fitch Ratings affirmed Gruma, S.A.B. de C.V.'s
(Gruma) ratings following the forced sale of its Venezuelan assets
to the government of Venezuela.  The ratings have been affirmed
were:

   -- foreign currency long-term issuer default rating at 'B+';
   -- local currency long-term issuer default rating at 'B+';
   -- US$300 million perpetual bonds at 'BB-/RR3'.

DOE RUN PERU: Presents 48-Month Payback Plan to Creditors
---------------------------------------------------------
Ryan Dube at Business News Americas reports that Doe Run Peru has
drawn up a 48-month plan to pay back the principal of its US$97
million debt to its creditors.

According to the report, the company would start to make monthly
payments to creditors two months after operations restart at its
polymetallic smelter in La Oroya.  The report relates that the
plan involves repaying US$26 million during the remainder of 2010,
US$25 million in 2011 and the remaining US$46 million in 2012.

The company told creditors that payments of the interest will
begin one month after the principal is repaid, the report says.

Business News Americas relates that the company's new business
plan is designed to decrease total liabilities from US$519 million
in 2010 to US$381 million in 2014.  The report relates that the
plan projects net sales of US$398 million in 2010, US$1.32 billion
in 2011, US$1.34 billion in 2012, and US$1.14 billion in both 2013
and 2014.

Doe Run Peru's proposal would come into effect if it is formally
accepted by two-thirds of its creditors and once the company is
able to resolve pending issues with the Peruvian government, the
report notes.

Meanwhile, the report says that the company has requested that the
government modify a 1997 privatization agreement that would
protect the firm and its parent company from environmental
lawsuits abroad.  The report relates that Doe Run Peru's other
requests are related to the repayment of a more than US$270
million debt to tax agency Sunat and waiving fines from mining
investment regulator Osinergmin.  In addition, the company wants
the energy and mines ministry to refrain from applying
environmental standards for air quality in La Oroya until an
environmental cleanup agreement dubbed PAMA is completed, the
report discloses.

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
