LEHMAN BROTHERS: Wilton Re Raises US$300MM Additional Capital
-------------------------------------------------------------
Wilton Re, a privately-owned life reinsurance group, has raised
an additional US$300 million in committed equity capital.  The
new commitment has been provided entirely by Lehman Brothers
Holdings, Inc.

Commented Chris Stroup, Chairman and CEO of Wilton Re: "Our
original business plan suggested aggregate capital investments of
approximately US$630 million over a three-year period.  With a
number of significant transactions already completed, we have
invested our original equity capital in less than two years.
While a good start, our progress also necessitated additional
capital to continue growth.

"Working with Lehman Brothers allows us to continue our pursuit
of reinsurance and risk opportunities - large and small," says
Stroup.  "We look forward to working hard with our new partners
at Lehman Brothers in building optimal risk and capital solutions
for our clients.  We are certain that our clients will benefit
from the breadth of products, services and competencies that we
will be able to provide through this partnership."

As with Wilton Re's original capital raise, this round of funding
will take the form of irrevocable calls to be drawn down as its
business requires.  Along with the infusion of capital, Lehman
Brothers' Capital Markets business will develop its North
American "principal at risk" life reinsurance business on an
exclusive basis through Wilton Re, further extending the range of
solutions offered by Lehman Brothers to its life insurance
clients.

David Sherr, Managing Director and head of Global Securitized
Products for Lehman Brothers, said "We see substantial
opportunity for further convergence between the capital markets
and reinsurance.  Our investment in Wilton Re helps us deliver
the broadest possible range of capital management capabilities
and solutions to our life insurance clients."

                       About Lehman Brothers

Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. -- http://www.lehman.com/-- was
the fourth largest investment bank in the United States.  For
more than 150 years, Lehman Brothers has been a leader in the
global financial markets by serving the financial needs of
corporations, governmental units, institutional clients and
individuals worldwide.

Lehman Brothers filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy Sept. 15, 2008
(Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 08-13555).  Lehman's bankruptcy
petition disclosed US$639 billion in assets and US$613 billion in
debts, effectively making the firm's bankruptcy filing the
largest in U.S. history.  Several other affiliates followed
thereafter.

Additional units, Merit LLC, LB Somerset LLC and LB Preferred
Somerset LLC, sought for bankruptcy protection in December 2009
or more than a year after LBHI and its other affiliates filed
their bankruptcy cases.

The Debtors' bankruptcy cases are handled by Judge James M. Peck.
Harvey R. Miller, Esq., Richard P. Krasnow, Esq., Lori R. Fife,

investment banker.

On Sept. 19, 2008, the Honorable Gerard E. Lynch of the U.S.
District Court for the Southern District of New York, entered an
order commencing liquidation of Lehman Brothers, Inc., pursuant
to the provisions of the Securities Investor Protection Act (Case
No. 08-CIV-8119 (GEL)).  James W. Giddens has been appointed as
trustee for the SIPA liquidation of the business of LBI.

The Bankruptcy Court has approved Barclays Bank Plc's purchase
of Lehman Brothers' North American investment banking and
capital markets operations and supporting infrastructure for
US$1.75 billion.  Nomura Holdings Inc., the largest brokerage
house in Japan, purchased LBHI's operations in Europe for US$2
plus the retention of most of employees.  Nomura also bought
Lehman's operations in the Asia Pacific for US$225 million.

               International Operations Collapse

Lehman Brothers International (Europe), the principal UK trading
company in the Lehman group, was placed into administration,
together with Lehman Brothers Ltd, LB Holdings PLC and LB UK RE
Holdings Ltd.  Tony Lomas, Steven Pearson, Dan Schwarzmann and
Mike Jervis, partners at PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, have been
appointed as joint administrators to Lehman Brothers
International (Europe) on Sept. 15, 2008.  The joint
administrators have been appointed to wind down the business.

Lehman Brothers Japan Inc. and Lehman Brothers Holdings Japan
Inc. filed for bankruptcy in the Tokyo District Court on
Sept. 16.  Lehman Brothers Japan Inc. reported about JPY3.4
trillion (US$33 billion) in liabilities in its petition.

FUNDO DE INVESTIMENTO: Moody's Rates Senior Shares at (P)Ba3
------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's America Latina has assigned provisional ratings of (P)
A2.br (sf) (Brazilian National Scale) and of (P) Ba3 (sf) (Global
Scale, Local Currency) to the senior shares to be issued by Fundo
de Investimento em Direitos Creditorios CDC Financiamento de
Veiculos Credifibra (FIDC Credifibra or the Issuer), a
securitization backed by a pool of auto loans originated by
Credifibra S.A. -- Credito, Financiamento e Investimento
(Credifibra).  FIDC Credifibra is the first securitization of
vehicle loans sponsored by Credifibra S.A. and rated by Moody's.

Issuer: FIDC CDC Financiamento de Veiculos Credifibra

Senior Shares - (P) A2.br (sf) (Brazilian National Scale) & (P)
Ba3 (sf) (Global Scale, Local Currency)

Ratings Rationale

The ratings are based on the following factors, among others:

- The minimum 30% credit enhancement, at closing and during the
  life of the transaction, in the form of subordination
  supporting the senior shares.  Quarterly amortization payments
  to the subordinated share in excess of the minimum 30%
  subordination are allowed subject to the discretion of the
  trustee;

- A minimum discount rate of 1.74% per month or 23% per annum
  yielding 4.5% excess spread under base case assumptions;

- The static nature of the transaction, with no ongoing revolving
  purchases.  Senior shareholders may vote at future shareholders
  meeting to allow for a new issuance of senior shares, which
  will finance additional purchases of portfolios;

- The role of a highly rated third party, Banco Bradesco and its
  subsidiary, BEM DTVM, as custodian bank, payment bank and
  trustee of the transaction.  The transaction benefits from
  Bradesco's operational quality;

- The overall transaction structure and the legal framework,
  including the bankruptcy remoteness of the issuer and well
  established Brazilian laws and regulations for the
  securitization of vehicle loans;

- The main weakness of transaction is related to the short
  historical performance data reviewed, which is limited to 23
  months and reflects Credifibra's status of a new entrant in
  this line of business.  The historical data available is below
  5 years, the maximum tenor of the contracts, so no full cycle
  of loan origination to maturity has been observed.

FIDC Credifibra is a newly incorporated closed-ended FIDC with
unspecified legal final maturity.  It has the ability to issue
multiple series of shares.  The provisional ratings are assigned
to the first series of senior shares to be distributed by means
of a public placement with restricted efforts (CVM Instruction
476). The subordinated shares will be entirely retained by the
seller, Credifibra.  Secondary sales of subordinated shares are
limited to entities that are part of the seller's economic group.

The senior shares will accrue a floating-rate interest of 117.8%
of DI Rate (Brazilian Interbank Rate) with daily accrual, and its
final maturity will take place 60 months after closing.  The
senior shares will make principal and interest payments starting
on the first month of the transaction.  Payments to subordinated
shares are permitted on a quarterly basis as long as the minimum
subordination ratio of 30% is adhered to, no evaluation or early
liquidation event is triggered and subject to the general
discretion of the trustee (BEM DTVM S.A.).

The assets backing FIDC Credifibra are vehicle loans originated
by Credifibra.  Most of the securitized pool will be comprised of
light vehicles (sedans); trucks and heavy vehicles can represent
up to a maximum of 20% of the fund's net assets. Loans for
motorcycles are not allowed.  The maximum single borrower
concentration accepted is 0.10%.

The transaction structure includes certain revision events.
Should a revision event occur, a shareholders meeting is called;
shareholders may decide to place the fund into early liquidation.

Key revision event triggers include:

- Downgrade of the senior shares rating below level A2.br (sf) by
  Moody's;

- Failure of trustee, custodian bank or seller to carry out its
  duties;

- One day increase of the DI Rate above 130%;

- Failure to establish Payment Reserve Account for 3 consecutive
  business days;

- Failure to establish Liquidity Reserve Account for 3
  consecutive business days;

- Breach of certain delinquency triggers stipulated in the fund's
  indenture;

- Breach of Minimum Subordination Level (30%) for 3 consecutive
  business days;

- Verification (monthly) of total repurchase amount in excess of
  0.8% of outstanding loans within a 12 month window;

- Verification (monthly) of total prepayments amount in excess of
  3.0% of outstanding loans within a 12 month window;

- Errors in formalization that account for more than 2% of
  underlying loan contracts or guarantees during a quarterly
  audit.

Key eligibility criteria and conditions of sale are:

- Loans must have tenor of maximum 60 months;

- The contracts must have a final maturity date before the legal
  final maturity of the senior shares;

- Maximum concentration for trucks: 20% of the fund's net assets;

- Obligors must not have restrictions with the credit bureaus
  (SERASA /SPC);

- Maximum concentration of 0.10% of fund net assets per borrower;

- Loans must not have any encumbrances or third party pledges;

- The financed vehicle must be less than 10 years old;

- The financed vehicle must have been pledged as collateral to
  the loan contract by means of fiduciary assignment (aliena‡ao
  fiduciaria);

- The loans must have no installments in arrears at the moment of
  sale.

Banco Bradesco S.A. will act as master servicer (custodiante) of
the transaction as well as payment bank.  Its responsibilities
include, among other duties, verifying that all receivables
purchased by the fund meet the eligibility criteria, monitoring
the early amortization triggers, in addition to managing all of
the Issuer's daily financial and operating activities.

BEM DTVM S.A. (Banco Bradesco Group) will be the trustee.

Credifibra S.A. -- Credito, Financiamento e Investimento (not
rated by Moody's) is a subsidiary of Banco Fibra S.A., which is
rated D Bank Financial Strength Rating, Ba2 Long Term Bank
Deposit Rating in the Global Scale, Local Currency, and Aa3.br in
the Brazilian National Scale. Banco Fibra S.A., is controlled by
Vicunha Group and since 2007 the IFC (International Finance
Corporation) has become a minority shareholder.

In assigning the ratings to this transaction, Moody's evaluated a
receivables' portfolio for 23-month period starting October 1,
2009 and ending Aug. 31, 2011.  During this period, Credifibra
originated vehicle loans financing for an amount of BRL 2.1
billion (corresponding to BRL3.6 billion nominal installments).
The average ticket size of the contracts was BRL 18.2 thousand
(corresponding to BRL30.4 thousand nominal installments).

DIGICEL GROUP: Blasts TBI President on Long Distance Conflict
-------------------------------------------------------------
Marina Mello at The Royal Gazette reports that Digicel Group
Limited blasted TBI President Greg Swan for calling on the
Bermuda government to act against the company after it re-
launched its long distance service.

In a statement, Digicel Group accused Mr. Swan of "seeking to
unilaterally dictate to the Government of Bermuda, through the
media, how Government should conduct their business," according
to The Royal Gazette.  "Digicel would remind Mr. Swan that he is
no longer the Director of Telecommunications and that does not
have a role in dictating or framing Government policy or
activity," the statement added, the report relates.

Digicel Group and sister company Transact also called on TBI to
disclose whether they have threatened legal action, directly or
indirectly, against the government, the report notes.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
Dec. 28, 2011, that TBI has called on the Bermudan government to
take action against Digicel Group Limited after the firm rel-
launched its long distance service after the Supreme Court of
Bermuda Chief Justice discharged Digicel and Transact from all
undertakings provided to the court in respect of the long
distance services being offered by Digicel and Transact.  Digicel
had previously launched this service, but was compelled to
suspend promotion and marketing on Oct. 27.  This suspension of
service has now ended.

CL FIN'L: Court Tosses Lascelles's Aim to Block Black Sand Bid
--------------------------------------------------------------
Camilo Thame at Jamaica Observer reports that Supreme Court judge
Justice Ingrid Mangatal refused to grant Lascelles de Mercado's
request to restrain St. Lucia-based Black Sand Acquisition
Limited from bidding to buy out the company before a trial in
February 2012.  Lascelles de Mercado is a subsidiary of CL
Financial Limited.

The trial is to determine if Black Sand's original bid breached a
section of the Securities Act, according to Jamaica Observer.

The latest ruling will allow Black Sand to submit a revised bid
but will prohibit Lascelles de Mercado' board to make certain
decisions, such as taking on a major expenditure that could help
its parent, CL Financial, to pay off its debt while the bid is on
the table.

Jamaica Observer discloses that with the latest ruling, the
investors in Black Sand said that the company will notify the
public of the new date after the general election.  The report
relates that the trial of the action will ultimately determine
the issue of whether the takeover bid circular issued by Black
Sand is in breach of section 51 of the Securities Act -- which
prohibits a person who has been associated with an issuer of
securities in the preceding 12 months from dealing with the
securities of that issuer if, by reason of his association, he is
in possession of information that is not generally available.
But if it were, it would be likely to affect the price of those
securities, Jamaica Observer notes.

Jamaica Observer says that Justice Mangatal found that damages to
Black Sand could possibly not adequately remedy the loss of an
opportunity for ownership should the injunction be granted, while
the language of the Act, and various other rules and regulations
tend to more strongly support the position taken by Black Sand
and the FSC on these issues, rather than Lascelles de Mercado.
Justice Mangatal also found that the granting of the injunction
appears to carry the higher risk of injustice than refusing to
grant it, the report adds.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
Dec. 5, 2011, the Gleaner said that Lascelles deMercado & Company
management said the Supreme Court ruled that it is not in any
obligation to issue a director's circular in response to its
hostile takeover bidders St. Lucia-based Black Sand Acquisition
Limited.  The Supreme Court also ruled that Black Sand's offer to
take control of LdM was non-compliant with the Securities
(Takeovers and Mergers) Regulations and the rules of the Jamaica
Stock Exchange, according to The Gleaner.  Jamaica Gleaner said
that Lascelles deMercado has turned to the courts to compel the
Financial Services Commission to declare the amended hostile bid
by St. Lucia-based Black Sand Acquisition Limited as being non-
compliant with the regulator's takeover rules.   Trinidad &
Tobago Newsday said that Lascelles deMercado has rejected a
takeover bid by Black Sand Acquisition.  Lascelles deMercado
Secretary Jane George said that the Board of Directors viewed
Black Sand's offer as an "unsolicited and unfunded . . .
opportunistic attempt by former director William McConnell to
persuade CL Financial's noteholders to foreclose on the
[Lascelles deMercado] shares held by them as collateral and sell
[the shares] to Black Sand for less than half the price paid for
them by the CL Financial group," according to T&T Newsday.  Ms.
George said that Lascelles deMercado's skepticism about the offer
lay partly on Black Sand's incompliance with the JSE rules and
the Securities (Take-Overs and Mergers) Regulations, T&T Newsday
noted.  Trinidad Express said Black Sand plans to acquire 90% of
Lascelles de Mercado's ordinary shares, all its 6% preference
shares and its 15% preference shares.

                         About CL Financial

CL Financial Group Limited is a privately held conglomerate in
Trinidad and Tobago.  Founded as an insurance company by Cyril
Duprey, Colonial Life Insurance Company was expanded into a
diversified company by his nephew, Lawrence Duprey.  CL Financial
is now one of the largest local conglomerates in the region,
encompassing over 65 companies in 32 countries worldwide with
total assets standing at roughly US$100 billion.

                        *     *     *

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
August 10, 2009, A.M. Best Co. downgraded the financial strength
rating to C (Weak) from B (Fair) and issuer credit rating to
"ccc" from "bb" of Colonial Life Insurance Company (Trinidad)
Limited (CLICO) (Trinidad & Tobago).  The ratings remain under
review with negative implications.  CLICO is an insurance member
company of CL Financial Limited (CL Financial), a diversified
holding company based in Trinidad & Tobago.

According to a TCR-LA report on Feb. 20, 2009, citing Trinidad
and Tobago Express, Tobago President George Maxwell Richards
signed bailout bills for CL Financial, giving the government the
authority to control the company's unit, Colonial Life Insurance
Company, and giving the central bank extensive powers to treat
with CL Financial's collapse and the consequent systemic crisis.

Digicel yesterday blasted TBI President Greg Swan for calling on
Government to act against Digicel after the company relaunched
long distance service.

In a statement Digicel accused Mr. Swan of "seeking to
unilaterally dictate to the Government of Bermuda, through the
media, how Government should conduct their business".

The highly personal statement went on to say: "Digicel would
remind Mr Swan that he is no longer the Director of
Telecommunications and that does not have a role in dictating or
framing Government policy or activity.

"Mr. Swan is not entitled to peremptorily demand, in the manner
of a spoilt child, how Government should protect his company's
commercial interests at all costs to the exclusion of all other
considerations.

"Digicel would also remind Mr. Swan that TeleBermuda was offered
the opportunity to give a cross-undertaking as to damages to the
Supreme Court last week if they wished to prevent
Digicel/Transact from relaunching ILD.

"TeleBermuda, represented in Court by Mr Swan, expressly refused
to do so. In essence, TeleBermuda refused to put their money
where their mouth is. TeleBermuda seem to prefer to do their
talking in the press - a much cheaper option.

"Digicel is contented to note that the Government of Bermuda has
not allowed itself to be used as a proxy for TeleBermuda and
their commercial interests."

Mr. Swan said of Digicel's attack: "I will not dignify this with
a response."

Digicel and sister company Transact also called on TBI to
disclose whether they have threatened legal action, directly or
indirectly, against the Government.

"Digicel believes that the Bermudian public would be well served
by a full and frank disclosure by TeleBermuda of all of its
private activities in this regard," Digicel said.

"TeleBermuda has a very significant head start over Digicel in
the market for international calls. They should not be afraid of
some new competition. "Stop whining TeleBermuda and do your
fighting where it matters; in the marketplace."

Government on Wednesday said it planned to refer the dispute over
Digicel long distance to the Telecommunications Commission.

A Government spokesperson said the Commission will decide whether
the Digicel/Transact service is in compliance with the terms of
its licences.

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
