TRIMART INC: Creditors Must Wait Several Months for Money Owed
--------------------------------------------------------------
Creditors may have to wait a few months before they get the
substantial sums owed to them, but today's reopening of Trimart
Incorporated's Haggatt Hall supermarket outlet is bound to be a
relief for them, NationNews.com reports.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
September 2, 2010, Nationalnews.com said that Trimart Inc.'s
supermarkets, which were closed by bailiffs on April 27, 2010, are
given the green light to reopen their doors.  The report related
that the action taken to close Trimart Inc.'s Haggatt Hall and
Bridge Street supermarkets was as a result of debts totaling over
BM$1.2 million.  Over 300 jobs were made redundant following the
closures, the report noted.

According to NationNews.com, President of the Barbados Chamber of
Commerce, Andy Armstrong, and acting president of the Barbados
Agricultural Society, Wendell Clarke, are delighted to see the
Haggatt Hall outlet open its doors for the first time in three
weeks.

"Unless Trimart can trade and bring some money in, they have no
chance of paying off their [more than 300] creditors.  So for
those who normally shop at Trimart, I hope you will continue to
support them," the report quoted Mr. Armstrong as saying.  The
report relates Mr. Clarke said, "For us to get back any money, we
have to ensure that the doors of Trimart continue to be open so
that we can survive.  We will also be looking to ensure that the
kind of credit facilities will be more feasible and practical for
us that we won't find ourselves in a similar situation."

The report notes Mr. Clarke, who is also president of the Barbados
Egg & Poultry Association, acknowledged that the impasse had had
some impact on the cash flow of the small farmers.  The report
says that one creditor told the SATURDAY SUN, that Trimart Inc.
had to reevaluate their business structure and streamline their
management team.

Trimart Incorporated owns and manages a supermarket chain in
Barbados.

GRUPO FERTINAL: Moody's Assigns 'B2' Corporate Family Rating
------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has assigned a B2 Corporate Family
Rating to Grupo Fertinal, S.A. de C.V., as well as a B2 rating on
its US$200 million of senior secured notes due 2015.  Proceeds
from the transaction will be used to repay a US$180 million bridge
loan and partially finance capital expenditures and support
working capital needs.  The bridge loan is being used to reacquire
assets from its former creditors and satisfy all other obligations
associated with its bankruptcy.  The rating outlook is stable.

Ratings assigned:

Grupo Fertinal, S.A. de C.V.

* Corporate Family Rating -- B2
* US$200 million senior secured notes due 2015 -- B2

                         Ratings Rationale

Fertinal's B2 CFR reflects the narrow and commodity nature of its
product line, single site production capabilities and a limited
operating history since restarting operations in 2007 after filing
for bankruptcy.  The ratings are supported by the company's
vertical integration into phosphate rock production and Moody's
positive view of the agricultural sector due to the anticipated
strong global demand for food and focus on crop yields.  The
ratings are further constrained by Moody's concerns over the
company's short-term liquidity given Fertinal's current absence of
committed or uncommitted bank credit lines.  The ratings also take
into consideration the assumption that the company will execute
all of the transactions necessary to reacquire all of its assets
and satisfy all the claims related to it's the bankruptcy
proceedings.

Following the placement of the senior secured notes, the company
is expected to have strong financial metrics for the rating
category if it is successful in executing its business plan.  The
strong projected credit metrics are mitigated by the fact that the
company still faces operational issues as it attempts to ramp up
its production to full capacity and by the lack of a sustained
track record with customers and expanding sales into new markets
since it restarted operations in 2007.  The company expects to
reach full capacity by the second half of 2011.  In addition, the
company appears to be a higher cost producer due to the nature of
their phosphate ore deposits (narrow ore seam mined underground)
versus other lower cost mines that are surface mined.  Fertinal's
vertical integration into phosphate is a positive as it allows the
company to secure a steady supply of phosphate rock while having
the ability to capture greater profit margins and weather global
commodity price swings.

The stable outlook reflects Moody's positive view of the
fertilizer industry, but is tempered by Moody's concerns over the
company's limited operating history, potential operating hurdles
to achieving its business plan goals and liquidity.  New low cost
phosphate capacity in the Middle East (starting in late 2011) and
Peru could also pressure industry margins.  There could be
negative pressure on the ratings if Fertinal is unable to put in
place bank lines to support its liquidity position or if it does
not successfully execute its business plan.

This is Moody's initial rating action for Grupo Fertinal, S.A. de
C.V.

Grupo Fertinal, S.A. de C.V. produces various phosphate and
nitrogen-based fertilizers and related industrial products (LDAN,
phosphoric acid, sulfuric acid, nitric acid).  The company has a
fertilizer production complex in an industrial complex at the port
of Lazaro Cardenas, Michoacan (west coast of Mexico) and a
phosphate mine in San Juan de la Costa, Baja California Sur that
supplies all of its needs.  Fertinal restarted its operations in
2007 after Hurricane Juliette flooded the mine in 2001 and led the
company to file for bankruptcy protection.  Fertinal had revenues
of approximately MXN5.1 billion (almost US$400 million) for the
twelve months ended June 30, 2010.

CARIBE MEDIA: Moody'S Junks Corporate Family Rating From 'B3'
-------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded Caribe Media, Inc.'s ratings,
including its Corporate Family Rating to Caa2 from B3, Probability
of Default Rating to Caa3 from B3, and associated instrument
ratings as detailed below.  The rating actions follow the
September 8, 2010 announcement by the company that it had engaged
a financial advisor to evaluate the capital structure of its
parent holding company, Local Insight Media Holdings, Inc., and
broadly reflect Moody's view that the company is likely to default
on a more imminent basis given persistently difficult business
conditions and ensuing high financial leverage, as now exacerbated
by tightening financial covenants.  In a distress scenario,
Moody's estimate ultimate recovery prospects in the range of 60%-
70% of (principally) debt claims, with subordinated debt absorbing
most of the loss severity.  The one-notch downgrade of the senior
secured debt rating to B3 principally reflects the increased risk
of default, partially offset by the above-average anticipated
firm-wide recovery expectation and comparatively favorable
position of senior secured debt holders (note specifically the
reduced loss given default estimate) relative to more junior
subordinated debt holders.  This completes the review for possible
downgrade initiated on September 9, 2010.

Downgrades:

Issuer: Caribe Media, Inc.

* Corporate Family Rating, Downgraded to Caa2 from B3

* Probability of Default Rating, Downgraded to Caa3 from B3

* Senior Secured Revolver due 2012, Downgraded to B3, LGD2-16%
  from B2, LGD3-35%

* Senior Secured Term Loan due 2013, Downgraded to B3, LGD2-16%
  from B2, LGD3-35%

Outlook Actions:

Issuer: Caribe Media, Inc.

* Outlook, Negative

Moody's does not rate Caribe's US$50.6 million (includes PIK
accretion) of subordinated notes due 2014, which are held entirely
by its primary shareholder Welsh, Carson, Anderson & Stowe.

                         Ratings Rationale

Caribe's Caa2 CFR reflects the company's small size and high
leverage in the face of declining demand for yellow pages
advertising from small and medium-sized businesses in Puerto Rico.
The ratings also reflect the company's high leverage with 5.2x
total debt-to-EBITDA as of June 30, 2010 (incorporating Moody's
standard adjustments).  Through the six months ended June 30,
2010, revenues declined 7% to US$50 million while EBITDA fell 25%
to US$17.1 million (34% margin) due to weak advertising demand in
a soft economy, primarily in Puerto Rico, and an increase in bad
debt expense.  In the same six months of 2009, Caribe generated
US$22.7 million of EBITDA with 42% margins.  Moody's expect
continued weak demand for core yellow pages products and services
over the next twelve months.

Liquidity is expected to be constrained as Caribe reported
US$1.8 million of cash at June 30, 2010 and, in a scenario in
which financial covenants are violated, it would no longer have
access to US$7 million of availability on its US$10 million
revolver (excludes US$3 million of unfunded commitments from a
subsidiary of Lehman Commercial Bank).  In a default scenario,
Caribe would eliminate dividends and apply available cash to
reduce debt balances as leverage ratio covenants become more
restrictive with quarterly step-downs through March 2011.
Although the company had built up cash balances through 1Q09,
dividends totaling US$29.9 million by year end 2009 notably
eliminated this liquidity cushion.  In the absence of term loan
prepayments, debt balances would continue to increase as accruing
subordinated PIK debt of approximately US$6 million per year more
than offsets the US$1.5 million of scheduled annual amortization
on the term loans.  In a restructuring, Moody's would expect a
good portion of the subordinated notes to be equitized.

Caribe is one of three operating groups under the LIMH parent
holding company.  The two other operating groups, Local Insight
Media Regatta Holdings, Inc. (Ca, as revised, also with a negative
rating outlook) and Local Insight Media Finance, LLC (Baa3, on
review for downgrade), are also highly leveraged entities with
declining revenue prospects, neither of which are in a position to
provide needed liquidity to Caribe.  Moody's estimate that total
debt for the consolidated entities exceeds US$1.8 billion with
reported debt-to-reported EBITDA of more than 7.5x for the
consolidated entity.  Although debt facilities at Caribe are
legally separate from its affiliates and do not cross default to
debt instruments issued by affiliates, Moody's view is that
management, together with its advisors, may address its
refinancing strategy at a consolidated level given reliance on
intercompany dividends and affiliate management fees.

"The negative outlook reflects Moody's view that Caribe's capital
structure is unsustainable, liquidity is constrained, and demand
for the company's core yellow pages advertising products,
particularly in its Puerto Rico markets, is in decline, making it
increasingly likely that the company will default on its financial
covenants in the near term," stated Carl Salas, Vice President at
Moody's Investors Service.

A rating upgrade is deemed unlikely in the absence of an equity
injection to reduce debt levels to a more sustainable level and
more comfortably within compliance of financial maintenance
covenants.  Moody's would downgrade ratings if revenue or EBITDA
were to decline below Moody's expectations or if the company were
to exchange debt securities at sub-par values.

Moody's last rating on Caribe occurred on June 23, 2009, when it
downgraded the CFR and PDR, each to B3, and downgraded associated
instrument ratings in addition to changing the outlook to
negative.  On September 9, 2010, Moody's placed all ratings on
review for possible downgrade.

Caribe's ratings were assigned by evaluating factors Moody's
believe are relevant to the credit profile of the issuer, such as
i) the business risk and the competitive position of the company
versus others in its industry, ii) the capital structure and the
financial risk of the company, iii) the projected financial and
operating performance of the company over the near-to-intermediate
term, and iv) management's track record and tolerance of risk.
These attributes were compared against other issuers both within
and outside of Caribe's core industry and Caribe's ratings are
believed to be comparable to those of other issuers of similar
credit risk.

Caribe Media, Inc., based in Puerto Rico, owns directory
publishing operating subsidiaries in two Caribbean nations.  In
Puerto Rico, Caribe owns 60% of Axesa Servicios de Informacion S.
en C. and Axesa Servicios de Informacion Inc., and in the
Dominican Republic Caribe owns 100% of Caribe Servicios de
Informacion Dominicana S.A. The company reported revenues of
approximately US$102 million for the LTM period ended June 30,
2010.  The company is an indirect, wholly-owned subsidiary of
Local Insight Media Holdings, Inc. whose primary owner is Welsh,
Carson, Anderson & Stowe.

CL FINANCIAL: CLICO Employees Demand Job Assurance
--------------------------------------------------
Colonial Life Insurance Company (Trinidad) Limited employees
protested outside the Red House in Port of Spain Thursday
demanding an assurance from the government that they will not
suffer the same fate as former CLICO Investment Bank (CIB)
employees, Trinidad Express reports.  CLICO is a unit of CL
Financial Limited.

According to the report, Banking, Insurance and General Workers

pay.  "We are demanding, with all this money that the government
spending in CLICO, that they pay (CIB) workers severance," the
report quoted Mr. Cabrera as saying.  "We want the government to
call in the union and give us an assurance that workers in CLICO,
that their jobs will be secure.  If we are not careful what could
happen is that CLICO workers could end up just like the CIB
workers -- on the breadline without any money whatsoever," he
added.

CLICO employees told the Express that they felt neglected as
attention was being given to shareholders but there was no
information about what would happen to them.  "In the budget we
just heard talk about British American and the CLICO merger.  In
any other merger you hear about jobs being sacrificed.  We want to
know what is our position and we want to know who is being
sacrificed," the report quoted employee Ricardo Modeste as saying.

The report relates Roxanne Cuffy, president of the CLICO branch of
the BIGWU, said that she was concerned that nothing was said about
the future of the employees at the company but applauded Minister
of Finance Winston Dookeran's promise to hold those responsible
for the crisis accountable.

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
