CABLEVISION SA: Fitch Affirms 'B' Long-Term Foreign Currency IDR
----------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed Cablevision S.A.'s long-term foreign
currency Issuer Default Rating (FC IDR) at 'B' and its local
currency IDR at 'B+'.  Fitch has also affirmed the 'B/RR4' ratings
on Cablevision's senior unsecured notes due in 2016.

The Rating Outlook is Stable.

The ratings are supported by the company's solid business position
and strong credit protection measures.  They take into
consideration high regulatory risk and political interference
within the media industry.  Other credit concerns include
Cablevision's lack of revenue diversity, costs pressures derived
from the double-digit inflation environment, the evolving
competitive landscape, and the currency mismatch between the
company's peso-denominated cash flow and its dollar-denominated
debt.  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.

Cablevision's cash flow stability is supported by scale and a
large client base with 3.4 million subscribers as of March 2011.
Cablevision leverages its scale by offering various digital
services that allow it to improve average revenue per user (ARPU),
and maintain operating margins and subscriber loyalty while
lowering subscriber churn levels. Nevertheless, the company's
business has improved at a slower pace than expected due to the
obstacles imposed by regulators as it seeks to start its telephony
service.  During the latest 12 months (LTM) ended March 31, 2011,
Cablevision generated US$1.3 billion of revenues and US$470
million of EBITDA.  These figures compare with US$1.1 billion of
revenues and US$415 million of EBITDA during the LTM ended
March 31, 2010.

The political climate in Argentina continues to present challenges
for media and entertainment companies as a result of various
regulatory and legal actions.  These include threats to regulate
cable TV prices, as well as efforts to nullify Cablevision's
merger with Multicanal S.A.  Fitch will continue monitoring the
evolution of these actions and judicial processes and their impact
upon Cablevision's credit quality.

As the largest pay-TV provider in Argentina, Cablevision has been
able to maintain operating margins within historical levels,
despite double-digit inflation and growing competitive conditions.
Some factors that have contributed to the company's success in
maintaining margins are: synergies obtained through the merger; an
increase in its network's bi-directional capabilities to 60%,
which has allowed the company to add subscribers with more than
one service and increase ARPU; its investments in dark fiber
rings, which has allowed it to transport almost 90% of internal
traffic through its own network; and, finally, the high percentage
of variable costs, mainly for programming. In addition, as double-
play offerings and premium services demand grow in the future, the
company's platform should enable it to optimize costs and network
investments.

As of March 31, 2011, Cablevision had US$513 million of financial
debt. Cablevision recently redeemed its sr. unsecured notes due
2012, 2013 and 2015 with the proceeds of a private placement.  The
new terms and conditions of the debt allow for dividend payments.
It is expected that by year end, the company's debt will increase
to approximately US$650 million.  The additional debt will be used
to finance working capital needs and fund part of its capex
program. Despite the increase in debt, leverage metrics should
remain conservative.  At the end of 2011, the company's total
debt-to-EBITDA ratio is expected to be 1.6 times (x), an increase
from 1.1x as of March 31, 2011.

Cablevision's liquidity position is supported by expected free
cash flow generation and approximately US$145 million of cash on
hand as of March 31, 2011.  The maturity profile of the debt goes
from 2014 to 2017 with annual principal services in the range of
US$100 to US$190 million.  Over the next few years, Fitch expects
that Cablevision should continue generating pre-dividend free cash
flow after capex of approximately US$100 million per year, which
can be used to pay dividends.

Cablevision is the largest multiple system operator (MSO) in
Argentina serving 3.4 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 14, 2011, pay-TV revenues account for almost 80% of
total revenues, and Internet accounts for the remaining 20%.
Cablevision is indirectly controlled by the Argentine media group
Clarin (60%) and 40% by Fintech Advisory Inc.


COMPANIA DE TRANSPORTE: Fitch Rates Class 2 Notes at 'B-/RR4'
-------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has assigned a 'B-/RR4' international scale rating
to Compania de Transporte de Energia Electrica en Alta Tension
Transener S.A.'s proposed class 2 senior unsecured notes issuance
for approximately US$ 148.6 million.  The 'RR4' Recovery Rating on
the issuance reflects an average expected recovery in the event of
default.  The proceeds from the notes will be used to fund the
exchange and tender offer of Transener's class 1 notes due in
2016.

Transener has announced an exchange and tender offer for
approximately US$122 million of class 1 notes (net of Transener's
and Transba S.A.'s holdings).  The purpose of this transaction is
to extend the average life of Transener's debt and reduce
refinancing risk.

Transener's foreign currency Issuer Default Rating (IDR) of 'B-'
reflects the material lag in tariff adjustments, the weak
regulatory environment, its exposure to growing inflation and the
currency mismatch between revenues and debt.  The rating
incorporates the company's first priority of payment from the
wholesale electricity market, the maintenance of conservative
credit metrics for the rating category and a manageable debt
maturity profile -- following the proposed transaction.

Delays in collections of its regulated revenues from the
administrator of the wholesale electric market (CAMMESA) are a
concern due to losses in the electric system.  A significant and
sustained delay in such collections could potentially lead to a
negative rating action.

At March 2011, Transener's total debt was US$148 million (97%
dollar denominated), with a total adjusted debt/EBITDA ratio of
2.5 times (x) and an EBITDA/interest expense ratio of 3.0x.
Latest 12 months (LTM) EBITDA as of March 2011 was US$58 million.
Current credit metrics are expected to decline absent any tariff
increases, subject to the peso devaluation and cost increases.
Despite an adverse environment, Transener has a good track record
in terms of service quality.  Service interruptions were low at
0.62 per 100km.

Transener has the exclusive concession to operate the main
national high voltage transmission grid and the province of Buenos
Aires' transmission grid, through its 90% stake in Transba S.A.
Transener accounts for approximately 95% of the national high
voltage grid.  In addition, the company has non-regulated revenues
associated with services provided to third parties both locally
and internationally.

* JAMAICA: Faces Another Delay for IMF Review
---------------------------------------------
RJR News reports that there has been another delay to the
International Monetary Fund review of Jamaica's performance under
the standby facility.

Jamaica Minister of Finance Audley Shaw indicated last week that
other issues have resulted in the setback, according to RJR News.

The public sector wage dispute over the 2009 to 2012 contract
period is now settled, RJR News points out.  That issue involved
public sector staffing costs going forward.  But Daryl Vaz, the
Minister with responsibility for Information, said that was not
the only matter on which the IMF expressed concern, the report
relates.

Jamaica Civil Service Association former president Wayne Jhones
told Prime Minister Bruce Golding last week that with the signing
of the wage agreement, urgent negotiations should start on wage
agreements going forward, RJR News recounts.

Meanwhile, the IMF has told the Golding administration to indicate
what levels the public sector wage bill will be going forward, RJR
News cites.  And since that information has not come as yet, the
Finance Ministry said the completion of the IMF reviews has been
further delayed, the report relates.

Based on Mr. Shaw's statement, the review has been delayed because
the IMF is concerned that the cost of the public sector could
derail the Government's economic program, by requiring greater
borrowing if revenue targets are not met, RJR News notes.

The Finance Ministry release said the government and public sector
unions will now have to come to an agreement about the cost of the
public sector, RJR News points out.

Another critical matter is that of tax reform, which has also been
urged to be moved, according to RJR News.  The matter includes
reducing discretionary waivers, and further improving tax
administration, the report cites.

TRINIDAD CEMENT: Shareholders Knock Board Over Falling Shares
-------------------------------------------------------------
Sasha Harrinanan at Trinidad & Tobago Newsday reports that several
shareholders of Trinidad Cement Limited Group took the group's
Board to task at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) over the
financial losses incurred by the group and the decision to
withhold dividend payments for the next three years while the
group's TT$1.8 billion debt is re-profiled.

During the AGM, the group's debt re-profiling plan was broken down
for shareholders by Group Chairman Andy J Bhajan and Group Finance
Manager Lincoln Parmasar, according to T&T Newsday.

The TT$1.8 billion debt re-profiling will include a moratorium on
payment of interest and principle for 18 months, which will be
added on to the debt, T&T Newsday notes.  The interest per year,
according to the report, is estimated to be US$160 million, which
TCL Group plans to pay off over an eight-year period.

The debt re-profiling specifically include payment of 50% of the
debt over the eight years, following which the lenders expect the
group to refinance at the end of the eight years, the report
relays.

Group Chief Executive Officer Dr. Rollin Bertrand tried to
reassure shareholders that a re-profiling of the group's debt and
the group's expected entrance into the French Caribbean and
Venezuelan markets, plus projected increased sales to Brazil,
would see TCL shares rise in value once again.  Currently, shares
are worth about TT$2, from a 2005 peak of TT$10, T&T Newsday
notes.

According to the 2010 Annual Report, the group's Jamaican and
Barbados subsidiaries -- Caribbean Cement Company Limited and
Arawak Cement -- were the hardest hit by depressed market
conditions in the region, T&T Newsday reports.

"The Group recorded an overall loss of TT$80.3 million, of which
TT$4.3 million related to discontinued operations, compared with a
profit of TT$94.3 million for 2009.  The loss attributable to
Group shareholders amounted to TT$48.6 million compared with a
profit of TT$95.8 million in 2009.  As a consequence, Losses per
Share in 2010 was 20 cents compared with Earnings per Share of 39
cents for 2009," Mr. Bertrand said in the report obtained by the
news agency.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
June 30, 2011, Trinidad & Tobago Newsday said that Trinidad
Cement Limited (TCL) Group is assuring shareholders the company's
dialogue with lenders has been productive and it was drawing
closer to an agreement on the material terms of the re-profiling
of the company.  T&T Newsday related that the Group said they
submitted proposals for the re-profiling of its debt portfolio to
Lenders.  A separate TCRLA report on Jan. 19, 2011, citing
RadioJamaica, related that Trinidad Cement Limited has unveiled a
major plan to restructure its debt to allow the Group to remain in
business given the severe effect of the economic decline on all
its markets.  The report related that a creditor committee
comprising large domestic and international institutional lenders
representing 75% of its total debt, has been established.  An
independent advisor is to be hired to the Committee to assess the
cash generating capability, operations and structure of the TCL
Group, the report noted.  RadioJamaica said TCL, along with the
Committee and its advisor, will present the debt restructure plan
to its lenders and investors for approval.

Trinidad Cement Limited is a cement company.

* URUGUAY: Fitch Upgrades Foreign Currency IDR to 'BB+'
-------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has taken these rating actions on the Issuer Default
Ratings (IDRs) and Country Ceiling for Uruguay:

   -- Foreign currency IDR upgraded to 'BB+' from 'BB';

   -- Local currency IDR upgraded to 'BBB-' from 'BB+';

   -- Foreign currency short-term IDR affirmed at 'B';

   -- Country ceiling upgraded to 'BBB' from 'BBB-'.

The Rating Outlook is revised to Stable from Positive.

The upgrade reflects Fitch's opinion that Uruguay's external and
fiscal vulnerabilities have reduced owing to improvements in its
external and fiscal solvency ratios, strengthened external
liquidity as well as better currency composition and maturity
structure of government debt.  High GDP per capita income, strong
social indicators, and a solid institutional framework underpin
Uruguay's creditworthiness.  Fitch believes policy continuity and
political stability are solidly anchored by a strong institutional
framework

Uruguay's growth performance and outlook remain quite favorable.
Its five-year average growth increased to 6.2% in 2010,
considerably higher than the 'BB' median over the same period.
Reduced trade and financial links with Argentina make Uruguay less
vulnerable to economic developments in its neighbor.

While Uruguay is likely to continue outperforming peers in terms
of growth over the forecast period, inflationary pressures have
increased as a result of external price shocks, weather conditions
and the rapid pace of domestic demand. Inflation could average
7.5% in 2011, almost two full percentage points above the forecast
for the 'BB' median (5.6%).

'While the macroeconomic policy framework has strengthened,
further improvement in monetary policy credibility, greater
coordination between monetary and fiscal policies, as well as
moderate wage increases, would be essential to bringing inflation
down closer to levels comparable to peers,' said Erich Arispe,
Director in Fitch's Sovereign Group.  While financial
dollarization has receded, it still remains relatively high
exposing the economy to FX shocks.

The favorable growth momentum, exchange rate appreciation and
relatively moderate fiscal deficits have supported debt reduction
in recent years, a trend that is likely to continue.  According to
Fitch estimates, central government debt could fall to 44.1% of
GDP in 2011 from 50.2% in 2008, slightly above the 'BB' median.
Uruguayan authorities continue to implement a proactive debt
management, reducing both foreign currency and roll-over risks.
Local currency denominated debt has improved in recent years and
could equal approximately 43% of total debt in 2011.

'Comparatively moderate government financing requirements and low
government revenue volatility mitigate the impact of economic
shocks on public finances,' added Mr. Arispe.

On the positive side, Uruguay's current account deficits are
likely to remain moderate and over-financed by FDI inflows over
the forecast period. Moreover, the increase in international
reserves in 2011 could boost the external liquidity ratio to 168%
in 2012, slightly below the 'BB' median of 176%.

Nevertheless, given the still high levels of financial
dollarization and commodity dependence, higher external liquidity
levels would further improve the economy's resilience to external
shocks.  In addition, higher international reserves would be
positive for the sovereign's net external debt position as Uruguay
continues to be among the largest net external debtors, at 46% of
CXR, in the 'BB' category.

A sustained improvement in external and fiscal balance sheets as
well as further consolidation of macroeconomic stability will be
positive for creditworthiness.  On the other hand, while not
Fitch's base, a material deterioration in government debt burden
and composition or increased macroeconomic in stability could also

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
