According to the report, Repsol YPF SA is seeking to sell about

crude reduced profitability.  Repsol SA, the report noted, delayed
a public offering of a stake in YPF SA in November after paying
US$15.5 billion for more than 80% of YPF SA in 1999.  In 2008,
Repsol SA sold a 15% stake in YPF SA for US$2.2 billion to
Argentine investor Enrique Eskenazi, the report added.

BANCO BMG: Moody's Assigns 'Ba3' Rating on US$250 Mil. Notes
------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a Ba3 long-term foreign
currency debt rating to the US$250 million subordinated notes
issued by Banco BMG S.A.  The notes are due August 2020, and are
eligible for Tier 2 capital treatment upon regulatory approval.
The outlook on the rating is stable.

The rating agency noted that the subordination of the notes was
taken into consideration by applying a one notch differential to
BMG's Ba2 global local currency deposit rating as per Moody's
notching convention.

Banco BMG is headquartered in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, and had
total consolidated assets of BRL10.77 billion (US$6 billion) and
equity of BRL2.2 billion (US$1.2 billion) as of June 30, 2010.

Moody's rated the bank's existing US$300 million Tier II
subordinated notes due in 2019.

This rating was assigned to the US$ 250 million subordinated notes
due 2020:

BANCO BRADESCO: Provides US$65 Million Loan to BR Malls
-------------------------------------------------------
BR Malls Participacoes S.A. obtained a financing worth BRL115
million (US$65 million) from Banco Bradesco SA, Rogerio Jelmayer
at Dow Jones Newswires reports, citing a company statement.

According to the report, the financing will mature in 12 years and
the company will pay an annual interest rate of 9.8 percentage
points over the variation of the local index called TR.

BR Malls, the report relates, will use the proceeds to finance the
construction of a shopping center in Sao Paulo city.

                         About BR Malls

Headquartered in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, BR Malls Participacoes
S.A. -- http://www.brmalls.com.br-- is the largest integrated
shopping mall company in Brazil with a portfolio of 34 malls,
representing 985.2 thousand square meters in total Gross Leasable

                           *     *     *

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
October 14, 2009, Fitch Ratings affirmed the ratings of
BRMALLS Participacoes S.A.:

  -- foreign currency issuer default rating at 'BB-';
  -- local currency issuer default rating at 'BB-';

                           *     *     *

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
May 28, 2010, Fitch Ratings affirmed ratings of Banco Bradesco
S.A.'s Support Rating Floor at 'BB'.


BANCO DO BRASIL: Fitch Affirms Individual Rating at 'C/D'
---------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed these ratings of Banco do Brasil S.A.:

  -- Long-term Foreign and Local Currency Issuer Default Ratings
     at 'BBB-'; Outlook Positive;

  -- Short-term Foreign and Local Currency IDRs at 'F3';

  -- Support Rating at '2';

  -- Support Rating Floor at 'BBB-';

  -- Individual Rating at 'C/D';

  -- Long-Term National Rating at 'AA+(bra)'; Outlook Stable;

  -- Short-Term National Rating at 'F1+(bra)'.

These affirmations of the IDRs and National Ratings reflect
Fitch's belief in federal government support for BdB if needed, in
light of its government ownership and its systemic importance.
BdB's IDRs are at their Support Floor, and are the same as those
assigned to the sovereign.  The Positive Outlook for its IDRs
derives from the Outlook for the sovereign rating and federal
government support capacity.

The Individual Rating considers its solid and expanding franchise,
which has benefited its operational performance, and which Fitch
expects will continue to support the bank's growth.  With a solid
and diversified base of deposits and customers, BdB is considered
a safe haven in times of crisis.  The Individual Rating also
considers its significant exposure to agribusiness risk and the
relatively poor quality of its tight capital base, pressured by
growing business leveraging and a significant volume of
intangibles, which also affects other local peers.  Even after
considering the effect of the recent capital increase, BdB's Fitch
eligible capital ratio (estimated at 8% after the successful
public offer of new shares) remains among the lowest for major
banks in the region.  A still high dependence on hybrid capital, a
relatively high dividend payout ratio, and continued growth will
continue pressuring this measure of capital quality.

BdB's operational performance has improved since 2007 as a result
of higher revenue generation and its credit portfolio expansion in
segments with higher margins.  This improvement partially
compensated for the additional provisioning needed in 2008/2009 in
light of significant loan growth in an economic downturn and
pressures from the bank's still significant weight in the
agribusiness.  Profitability should become more in line with peers
although pressures on earnings are expected from administrative
expenses influenced by consolidation in the near term.

BdB is the largest Brazilian conglomerate and market leader in
deposits, credit, foreign trade operations and asset management.
In 2008/2009, the bank reached a larger scale through its organic
growth and the acquisition of credit portfolios from smaller banks
(public payroll deductible loans and auto lending) and capital
participations in other financial institutions.  Its acquisitions
of Nossa Caixa and 50% of Banco Votorantim S.A. were the most
relevant, adding to BdB more than BRL100 billion in assets and
liabilities.

At the first quarter of 2010 (1Q'10), BdB's assets, credit
portfolio and regulatory capital totaled, respectively,
BRL725 billion, BRL306 billion, and BRL61.6 billion.  Although
hybrid capital and subordinated debts have aligned BdB's capital
ratios with the local prudential regulations since 2007, the
higher leverage and growing business activities reduced its
regulatory capital to 13.7% and the Fitch eligible capital ratio
fell below 6% at the end of 1Q'10.

In Fitch's opinion, BdB's tight capital base remains a constraint
for its long-term development.  The capital injection of
BRL7 billion in July of 2010, with resources raised through its
successful public offer of new shares, will give the bank room to
manage its growth in 2010.  However, it does not provide a long-
term strategic growth plan for beyond 2011.  While Fitch
recognizes the improvements noted above, the Individual Rating
could still come under pressure should the Fitch eligible capital
measures return to their pre-offering level.


BANCO PANAMERICANO: Closes Foreign Issue of US$300 Million
----------------------------------------------------------
Banco PanAmericano closed its issue of senior debt in the
international markets, where the banks Itau, Bradesco, UBS
Investment Bank and Standard Bank were the coordinators.  The
amount made available was US$300 million.  The demand for the
notes was so great that the volume of requests reached US$2.02
billion.  The term of issue is for 5 years, with a 5.5% coupon
p.a. and yield 5.625% p.a.

The interest in the PanAmericano notes was so great that the books
were closed in only two and a half days.  Additionally, the high
demand allowed the bank to lower the initial rate indicator.  The
resources will be utilized to improve the bank's capital structure
and to expand its credit portfolio, according to Wilson Roberto de
Aro, Financial Director and Director of Investor Relations at
Banco PanAmericano.

Even without holding a physical road show, more than 170 different
investors participated in this deal.  Of unique interest is the
strong geographical and investor type diversification, with many
investors participating in a PanAmericano deal for the first time.
Today's issue is part of Banco PanAmericano's Program of US$ 500
million in Medium Term Notes and will be listed on the Irish Stock
Exchange. Moody's gave the operation a rating of Ba2 (Positive
outlook).

AIR JAMAICA: Debt Still Floating
--------------------------------
The Jamaican government is yet to settle Air Jamaica Limited's
debt totaling JM$12.6 billion nearly three months after it sold
the carrier to Caribbean Airlines Limited, Go-Jamaica reports.

According to the report, a document from the finance ministry
revealed that US$22.5 billion in capital expenditure was allocated
to Air Jamaica.  However, the report relates that up to June 30,
only US$10 billion was disbursed under the heading of expenditure.

Deputy Financial Secretary Annmarie Rhoden said the ministry is
working with Air Jamaica to settle the outstanding obligations,
the report notes.

Trinidad and Tobago carrier Caribbean Airlines took over the
operations of Air Jamaica on May 1, 2010 this year.

                        About Air Jamaica

Headquartered in Kingston, Jamaica, Air Jamaica Limited --
http://www.airjamaica.com/-- was founded in 1969.  It flies
passengers and cargo to almost 30 destinations in the Caribbean,

through Air Jamaica Vacations.  The company closed its intra-
island services unit, Air Jamaica Express, in October 2005.  The
Jamaican government owned 25% of the company after it went private
in 1994.  However, in late 2004, the government assumed full
ownership of the airline after an investor group turned over its
75% stake.  The Jamaican government does not plan to own Air
Jamaica permanently.

January 27, 2010, Moody's Investors Service changed the ratings
outlook of Air Jamaica Limited to stable.  The Corporate Family

Jamaica's unconditional and irrevocable guarantee of the rated
debt obligations of Air Jamaica.  The foreign currency bond rating

Ratings Services said that it lowered its long-term corporate
credit rating on Air Jamaica Ltd. to 'CCC' from 'CCC+'.  The

JUTC: Continues on Loss-Making Path
-----------------------------------
Jamaica Urban Transit Company has continued to experience
financial woes, RadioJamaica reports, citing a report tabled in
Parliament.

According to RadioJamaica, the report, which was tabled by
Transport Minister Mike Henry, stated that the bus company
continues to face difficulties meeting its daily operational
expenses.  The report relates that JUTC is in need of immediate
funding to clear mounting liabilities and to fund some of its
day-to-day operations.

RadioJamaica notes that during its 2009/2010 financial year, the
company racked up a JM$948 million loss.  RadioJamaica relates
that while it was a decline from the JM$1.1 billion loss suffered
in the previous year, the report also shows that the JUTC
continues to face challenges in meeting the recovery of costs from
fare income due to inadequate passenger loads.

RadioJamaica says that other reasons cited were the increasing
cost of operations due to domestic and overseas inflationary
factors and traffic congestion, which affects the bus company in
maintaining its schedules.

                             About JUTC

Jamaica Urban Transit Company was established in 1998 to provide a
centrally managed state-of-the-art public bus service.  The
government invested US$6 billion aiming to have an efficient
transport system and for the Jamaican people.

                           *     *     *

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
February 13, 2009, RadioJamaica said JUTC defaulted on loan
obligations with RBTT Bank and Petrocaribe Development Fund, among
others, due to cash flow problems.  The Ministry of Information,
as cited by Radio Jamaica, stated that the JUTC operates an
overdraft facility of US$520 million at the National Commercial
Bank which expired in February.  The report noted that the
Ministry said this facility is consistently utilized at the upper
limit and, on occasions, exceeds the limit giving rise to the
imposition of penalty charges above 43%.

RadioJamaica reports.  The report relates that RBTT bank disclosed
that following a strategic review of its operations it has decided
to close it branches at Fairview in Montego Bay, St. James, Port
Antonio in Portland and Southfield in St. Elizabeth.

According to the report, the Bustamante Industrial Trade Union,
which represents RBTT workers, said it was informed at a meeting
with the management Thursday evening that the closures will result
in 38 positions being cut.

However, the report relates, Kavon Gayle, BITU President-General,
is trying to get the workers deployed to other areas of the bank.

"The union will be monitoring the situation as we go along.  Not
only are we concerned about the closure of these branches but the
impact in terms of the redistribution of the clients and customers
to other branches and how that will impact on the work load of the
existing membership.  We're monitoring the situation and will
continue to have discussions with the bank in this regard," the
report quoted Mr. Gayle as saying.

SUGAR COMPANY OF JAMAICA: New Owner to Maximize Use of Local Labor
------------------------------------------------------------------
Mark Titus at Jamaica Gleaner reports that Complant International
Sugar Company Limited Chairman Tang Jianguo said that his company
will be seeking to maximize the use of local labor in day-to-day
operations.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
July 16, 2010, The Associated Press said that Complant
International struck a deal to buy SCJ's three remaining
government-owned sugar factories for US$9 million under a 50-year
lease.  The report related that the deal also calls for the
company to improve the factories and build a sugar refinery.

The report relates Mr. Tang said that Chinese workers would only
be brought in where necessary.  "As I said in my speech, we need
to work closely with local engineers, technicians and laborers,"
Mr. Tang said in an interview with the Gleaner.

The report notes that the Chinese company, under the Economic
Partnership Agreement with Europe, can sell its sugar to Tate &
Lyle to be refined in England and will have access to the United
States and CARICOM's 15 markets, Jamaica included.

                            About SCJ

The Sugar Company of Jamaica Holdings Limited, a.k.a. SCJ, was
formed in November 1993 by a consortium made up of J. Wray &
Nephew Limited, Manufacturers Investments Limited and Booker Tate
Limited.  The three companies each held 17% equity in SCJ, with
the remaining 49% being held by the government of Jamaica.  In
1998, the government became the sole shareholder of SCJ by
acquiring the interests of the members of the consortium. Its
stated goal was to maximize efficiency, productivity and
profitability of the three sugar factories, within three years.
The principal activities of the company are the cultivation of
cane and the manufacture and sale of sugar and molasses.

                           *     *     *

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
June 22, 2009, the Jamaica Gleaner reported that Agriculture and
Fisheries Minister Christopher Tufton said that if a new deal is
not inked soon for the divestment of SCJ's factories, the public
will be called on again to plug a projected US$4.2 billion hole --
representing a US$2 billion operational loss, and bank penalties
-- apparently from continuous hefty overdrafts.  The loss was
incurred by the SCJ's four factories during the 2008/2009 season.
The Gleaner related the enterprise has a US$21-billion debt and
losses totaling more than US$14 billion since 2005.

MEXICANA AIRLINE: Canada Flights Canceled at Creditor's Request
---------------------------------------------------------------
Crayton Harrison at Bloomberg News reports that Corporacion
Mexicana de Aviacion SA said two flights from Canada to Mexico
City were canceled after a creditor asked Canadian authorities to
take grounding actions to clarify "rumors" about the company's
debt obligations.

According to the report, the airline said the creditor's actions
are unjustified and are the result of errors by media outlets.
The report relates that the airline is working with the
authorities to resolve the issue and avoid disruptions.

July 27, 2010, Aviation Daily said that Compania Mexicana de

after failing to meet debt obligations, including some aircraft
lease payments.  According to the report, several sources said
that creditors have questioned data Mexicana must provide lenders,
while others note that debt payments have been missed.  The report

others hold that the payments are just late.  One source, the
report added also said Mexicana is considering a court-protected
debt restructuring.

DOE RUN PERU: Government Cannot Close Down La Oroya Facility
------------------------------------------------------------
Doe Run Peru's failure to restart operations at its polymetallic
smelter in La Oroya by the July 27 deadline can be sanctioned with
a fine but the government cannot close down the facility, Business
News Americas reports.

According to the report, an unnamed spokesman said that "current
legislation does not permit the closure of the complex if the
company does not restart operations by the date established by
law.  There could be a fine but not the automatic closure of the
complex."

The report notes that the government previously threatened to
permanently shut down the facility if Doe Run Peru did not restart
operations by the deadline.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
July 29, 2010, Bloomberg News said that Doe Run Peru failed to
reopen its smelter by a government-set deadline of July 27, 2010.
According to the report, Peru Energy & Mines Regulator Osinergmin
will decide what action to take against the company.  A separate
TCRLA report on July 27, 2010, related that Reuters said Peru's
mining ministry said that Doe Run Peru failed to submit proof it
has financial guarantees that will allow it to reopen its
sprawling metals smelter.  According to Reuters, the Peruvian
government gave Doe Run Peru until July 22, 2010, to prove it has
sufficient financing to restart its metals smelter, and to submit
signed agreements with its suppliers and creditors.

                            ***********

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
