ALTO PARANA: Moody's Downgrades CFR to 'B1'; Outlook Negative
-------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Latin America has downgraded Alto Parana's local currency
Corporate Family Rating to B1 from Ba3. The outlook on the
Corporate Family Rating is stable. At the same time, Moody's
affirmed the Baa2 foreign currency rating and the Aaa.ar
Argentina National Scale Rating on Alto Parana's US$270 million
fully guaranteed notes. The outlook on the ratings of these notes
remains negative.

Ratings Rationale

The downgrade of the corporate family rating reflects Moody's
view that Alto Parana ultimately cannot be completely de-linked
from the credit quality of the Argentinean government (B3,
stable), and thus its ratings need to more closely reflect the
risk that they share with the sovereign.

Moody's believes that there has been no deterioration in the
intrinsic credit quality of Alto Parana. However, a weaker
sovereign has the potential to create a ratings drag, and
therefore it is appropriate to limit the extent to which these
issuers are rated higher than the sovereign, in line with Moody's
Rating Implementation Guidance "How Sovereign Credit Quality May
Affect Other Ratings" published on February 13, 2012.

The B1 corporate family rating benefits from an uplift to the
company's standalone credit profile provided by the support from
Arauco (Baa2, negative) which guarantees its US dollar bonds.
Alto Parana remains rated above the sovereign rating at B3 as a
reflection of its stronger credit quality, although by this
rating action the gap has been reduced.

"In order to be rated significantly above the sovereign, an
issuer needs not only be fundamentally stronger than the
sovereign from a credit perspective, but also demonstrate a
degree of insulation from the domestic macroeconomic and
financial disruption, which generally accompanies a sovereign
default," says Veronica Amendola, a Moody's Vice President,
Senior Analyst.

"We continue to take into account Alto Parana's superior
fundamental credit quality, evidenced by the company's dominant
position in the domestic pulp/forestry industry, adequate
liquidity, sizeable export base, that currently accounts for more
than 50% of total revenue and limited reliance on domestic
markets for funding. However, Moody's believes de-linking it
further from the sovereign is not appropriate because of the
company's assets concentration in Argentina, with material
exposure to domestic business, banks and counterparties,"
Amendola adds.

Moody's notes that any downward rating action at the sovereign
level would likely result in negative rating actions at Alto
Parana, as the agency would seek to maintain the current notching
gap in the absence of a significant change in credit quality at
Alto Parana. A potential upgrade is not anticipated in the
foreseeable future.

Alto Parana is the largest forestry company in Argentina. It is
engaged in the production of pulp, forestry, wood and chemical
products and the management of forestry assets. Industrial plants
are located in the province of Misiones, Buenos Aires and Santa
F‚. Alto Parana manufactures whitened long fiber cellulose, wood
paper pulp, sawn timber, panels and chemistry products. Alto
Parana is a company controlled by Industrias Forestales, a
corporation belonging to Arauco Group, a Chilean company, engaged
primarily in the production of pulp, wood products, and the
management of forestry assets in Chile, Argentina, Uruguay and
Brazil.


ALTO PARANA: S&P Affirms 'BB-' Corp. Credit Rating; Outlook Neg
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services affirmed its 'BB-' corporate
credit rating on Alto Paran  S.A. (APSA). The outlook remains
negative. "The rating action is part of our regular review," S&P
said.

"The rating on APSA continues to reflect our belief that the
company's 99.97% controlling shareholder, Chile-based Celulosa
Arauco y Constitucion S.A. (ARAUCO; BBB/Stable/--) has sufficient
economic incentives to support the firm. This is mainly because
of APSA's status as a significant foreign subsidiary. ARAUCO
fully and unconditionally guarantees the company's $270 million
notes due 2017, which make up the bulk of APSA's debt," S&P said.

"The company's 'b' stand-alone credit profile reflects the
inherent risks of operating in Argentina, the company's narrow,
mostly commodity-oriented product mix, and its modest scale
compared with rated peers. APSA's competitive cost position in
forest management, pulp production, sawmill products, and panels
partially mitigate these factors. We assess the company's
business risk profile as weak and its financial risk profile as
aggressive," S&P said.


CELULOSA ARGENTINA: Fitch Affirms Issuer Default Rating at 'B'
--------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed the following ratings on Celulosa
Argentina S.A. (Celulosa):

  -- Foreign currency Issuer Default Rating (IDR) at 'B';
  -- Local currency IDR at 'B';
  -- National scale IDR at 'A(arg)'.

The Rating Outlook is Stable.

Celulosa's 'B' ratings reflect the company's market position as
an integrated pulp, paper and forest products manufacturer in
Argentina and Uruguay.  While very small in size compared to its
peers in the region, Celulosa has a strong market share in its
domestic markets, and has a diversified and stable customer base.
The company benefits from import tariffs and other agreements,
such as a bilateral trade agreement between the governments of
Argentina and Brazil that limits Brazilian paper imports and
reduces competition in the domestic market.

Celulosa's small size makes it more vulnerable to industry cycles
due to lower economies of scale and its operating results are
exposed to high levels of volatility in international pulp
prices.  The company is also exposed to double-digit inflation in
Argentina and other direct and in-direct sovereign related risks,
including devaluation and refinancing risks.

Current market conditions prevent Celulosa from rolling out its
growth strategy.  The company's strategy is to increasingly
integrate its operations with the forestry segment and reduce its
reliance on third-party suppliers of raw materials (eucalyptus
wood).  As part of this strategy, the company plans to invest in
the forestry division as well as develop new business lines.  As
of today, 95% of wood purchases are done on a spot basis,
exposing the company to prices and volume risks.  The company has
production assets in Argentina and Uruguay, the latter through
its subsidiary Fanapel.

Financial results came under pressure over the last year.  For
the last 12 months (LTM) ended Feb. 29, 2012, Celulosa generated
revenues and EBITDA of USD 391 million and USD58 million,
respectively.  These figures compared to USD 355 million of sales
and USD 73 million of EBITDA as of Feb. 28, 2011.  Although
Celulosa's sales reflected a price increase of 10%, EBITDA
margins deteriorated to levels which are expected to continue to
impact the company's cash generation over the near term.
Celulosa generated USD14 million of CFO for the LTM as of
February 2012.  The company used this cash flow and new debt
issuances to finance capex and preferred dividends.

Leverage is low for the rating category.  Celulosa's debt levels
are currently below targeted levels of USD 200 million, and
leverage is expected to increase to 3.6x from the current level
of 3.0x assuming the company is able to access the international
capital markets to fund its capex plan.  Given the negative
fundamentals of the industry and adverse financial conditions in
the international capital markets, Fitch does not expect the
company will increase its debt levels in the near term.  As of
Feb. 29, 2012, Celulosa had USD173 million of debt, an increase
from USD156 million at FYE May 2011.  Celulosa's EBITDA is
expected to remain at approximately USD60 million during FYE
2012.

Celulosa's liquidity is tight and exposes the company to
refinancing risk.  As of February 2012 Celulosa had USD3.7
million of cash and marketable securities and USD85 million of
short-term debt.  Historically, the company has had a high
concentration of its financial debt in the short term and has
consistently been able to refinance these trade lines of credit.


FIDEICOMISO FINANCIERO: Moody's Rates Debt Securities 'B3'
----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Latin America has assigned a rating of A3.ar (national
scale rating) and B3 (global rating, local currency) to the debt
securities of Fideicomiso Financiero Bodere Buenos Aires, a
financial trust established under the Argentine Law.

Issuer: Deutsche Bank S.A. (Argentina), acting solely as issuer
and trustee

Fideicomiso Financiero Bodere Buenos Aires, Debt Securities:
rated A3.ar (national scale rating) and B3 (global rating, local
currency)

As of May 30, the securities for this transaction have not yet
been placed in the market. If any assumption or factor Moody's
considers when assigning the ratings change before closing, the
ratings may also change.

Rating Rationale

The assigned ratings are primarily based in the rating of the
Province of Buenos Aires as the obligor under the underlying
bonds. The Province of Buenos Aires is currently rated A3.ar
(national scale rating) and B3 (global rating, local currency).
Any future change in the rating of the Province of Buenos Aires
is likely to impact the rating of this transaction. The ratings
are also based on the ability of Deutsche Bank S.A. (Argentina)
(rated TQ1.ar) to act as trustee for the benefit of bondholders.

The underlying assets of the trust are bonds issued by the
Province of Buenos Aires on December 30, 2011 in order to pay
debts to providers. Cliba Ingenieria Ambiental S.A., a service
provider to the Province of Buenos Aires, will assign these bonds
to the issuing trust. The rated debt securities will mirror the
terms and conditions of the underlying bonds.

The amortization schedule and the interest rate of the rated debt
securities will replicate that of the underlying bonds.

The interest and principal payment dates on the rated securities
will occur three business days after the payment date of the
underlying bonds. Trust expenses have been sized at closing and
will be paid by the arranger directly.

The promise to investors is to receive timely interest and
principal before legal final, which will occur on January 2,
2014.

Since there is no excess spread or overcollateralization in this
transaction, any additional or unexpected taxes and/or expenses
can affect the repayment of the debt securities. However, if
extraordinary expenses or taxes become due, investors will have
the right to vote for an early liquidation of the transaction and
receive the underlying bonds as payment in kind on a pro rata
basis.

Moody's notes that there is a risk that a court may declare the
assignment of the underlying bonds to the issuing trust void if
the seller files for bankruptcy shortly after the assignment date
and the price paid for the assets is not considered a "fair
market value". However, this risk is mitigated by the fact that
the rated securities will be publicly offered.

BERMUDA COMMERCIAL: Moody's Reviews 'D+' BFSR for Downgrade
-----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service placed all ratings of Bermuda
Commercial Bank Limited (BCB) on review for downgrade. BCB is
rated Baa3 for long-term deposits and D+ for standalone bank
financial strength (BFSR), which translates to a Baseline Credit
Assessment of baa3. The bank's short-term rating is Prime-3.

Ratings Rationale

During its review, Moody's will focus on BCB's risk governance
and risk appetite. Moody's noted that BCB has rapidly grown its
investment portfolio since the acquisition of the bank by
Permanent Investments Limited (Permanent) in April 2010.
Specifically, the investment portfolio has grown from 5% of total
assets at March 31, 2010 to 45% of total assets at March 31, 2012
with much of the investment portfolio directed towards
international bond holdings. Moreover, after the acquisition, BCB
engaged one of its minority shareholders, ICM Limited (that also
had ties to Permanent), as the bank's portfolio investment
advisor. The management of the bank's investment portfolio by
ICM, a private investment company, also raises concerns about the
risk governance in the management of the portfolio.

Notwithstanding the review, Moody's said that BCB's capital
position is robust. As well, BCB holds a comparatively small loan
portfolio, exposing it to limited risk in this business.

Moody's also said that placing all ratings of BCB, including its
BFSR under review for downgrade indicates that the long-term
ratings could be lowered by more than one notch.

Moody's last rating action on Bermuda Commercial Bank Limited was
on January 30, 2008 when Moody's confirmed the ratings of BCB at
D+ for standalone BFSR and Baa3 and Prime-3, respectively, for
long- and short-term deposits.

The methodologies used in this rating were "Bank Financial
Strength Ratings: Global Methodology" published in February 2007,
"Incorporation of Joint-Default Analysis into Moody's Bank
Ratings: Global Methodology" published in March 2012, and
"Moody's Guidelines for Rating Bank Hybrid Securities and
Subordinated Debt" published in November 2009.

Bermuda Commercial Bank Limited is headquartered in Hamilton,
Bermuda with assets of US$535 million at March 31, 2012.

CENTRAIS ELECTRICAS: Fitch Lowers Issuer Default Rating to 'C'
--------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has taken the following rating actions on Centrais
Eletricas Matogrossenses S.A. (Cemat), a subsidiary of Rede
Energia S.A.:

Cemat

  -- Local and foreign currency Issuer Default Ratings (IDRs)
     downgraded to Restricted Default ('RD') from 'C';
  -- Long-term national scale rating downgraded to 'RD(bra)' from
     'C(bra)'.

Fitch also rates Rede Energia and its subsidiary Centrais
Eletricas do Para S.A. (Celpa) as follows:

Rede Energia

  -- Local and foreign currency IDRs 'C';
  -- Long-term national scale rating 'C(bra)';
  -- USD575 million perpetual notes long-term international
     rating 'C/RR4';
  -- BRL370 million debenture issuance due in 2015 'C(bra)'.

Celpa

  -- Local and foreign currency IDRs 'D';
  -- Long-term national scale rating 'D(bra)';
  -- USD250 million senior unsecured notes due in 2016 long-term
     international rating 'C/RR4'.

The rating actions reflect Fitch's view that the debt exchange of
certain of Cemat's financial obligations, including its 2nd and
4th local debentures issuances, are distressed debt exchanges
under Fitch's 'Distressed Debt Exchange Criteria', published
Aug. 12, 2011.

Although the investors agreed with the new conditions of these
issuances, Fitch understands that they resulted in a significant
change in the original contractual terms, aiming at avoiding an
event of default.

AIR JAMAICA: "Not to Blame for Caribbean Airline Debts"
-------------------------------------------------------
Trinidad Express reports that Dennis Lalor, the head of the
divestment team involved of the sale of Air Jamaica Limited to
the Trinidad-based Caribbean Airlines, has rejected claims that
the airline's multi-million-dollar debt is to blame for CAL's
current financial problems.

"The government of Jamaica assumed all liabilities of Air
Jamaica, providing CAL a clean slate as it relates to Air J's
operations," Mr. Lalor told the Jamaica Observer newspaper,
according to Trinidad Express.  This was done to ensure that CAL
would have no disadvantages when it got the Air Jamaica brand,
Mr. Lalor added, Trinidad Express notes.

"In addition, the Government of Jamaica provided CAL with cash of
over US$17 million, which represented tickets prepaid for by
customers not yet flown," the report quoted Mr. Lalor as saying.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
May 24, 2012, Jamaica Observer said that Air Jamaica Limited's
divestment team is crafting a response to the growing criticisms
being leveled at the company and its owners, Caribbean Airlines
Limited.  The Gleaner said that Air Jamaica Limited continues
to incur losses under its new owner, Caribbean Airlines Limited.
Still, Air Jamaica's US$38 million loss was a 75% improvement
over the previous year when the airline lost some US$150 million,
the project manager on the divestment committee and a union
expert said.

                        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,
Europe, and North America.

                         *     *     *

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
June 23, 2010, Trinidad and Tobago Caribbean Airline on May 1,
2010, acquired Air Jamaica for US$50 million and operated six Air
Jamaica aircraft and eight of its routes.  Jamaica got a 16%
stake in the merged operation, with CAL owning 84%.  According to
a TCR-LA report on June 29, 2009, RadioJamaica News said the
Jamaican government indicated it will name a buyer for cash-
strapped Air Jamaica.  RadioJamaica related the airline has been
hemorrhaging over US$150 million per annum and the government has
had to foot the massive bill.  In addition, RadioJamaica said,
Air Jamaica currently has over US$600 million in loans
outstanding.


CABLE & WIRELESS: Incurs $20 Billion at End of March
----------------------------------------------------
RJR News reports that losses at Cable and Wireless rose from
$6 billion to over $20 billion at the end of March.

The company was forced to write off a significant portion of its
assets, according to RJR News.  The report relates that it is the
biggest loss ever recorded by a listed company and has caused its
auditor KPMG to raise questions regarding the continued
operations.

RJR News notes that KPMG in its opinion said due to continued
losses "uncertainty exists about the company's continuation as a
going concern".

The results also show that stockholders of the company, had a
deficit to the tune of $14 billion, RJR News says.

Cable and Wireless said it is currently evaluating the impact of
a possible delisting from the stock exchange, but at the same
time, it is assessing options to maintain its listing by
restoring its capital base, RJR News discloses.  The report notes
that on the matter of its continued losses, Cable and Wireless
says it remains committed to returning to profitability but that
seems to depend to a great extent, on the impact, recent
regulatory changes to the telecoms sector will have on its
competitiveness.

Other factors highlighted to help return to profits include a
greater focus on data and business services, the revamping of
marketing campaigns woven with cost reduction strategies, RJR
News says.

Cable and Wireless reportedly stated that it received a letter
from its parent company, indicating that financial support will
be provided in the foreseeable future, RJR News adds.

* GUATEMALA: Fitch Affirms LT Foreign Currency Rating at 'BB+'
--------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has assigned a long-term foreign currency rating of
'BB+' to Guatemala's USD700 million global bond (5.75% coupon)
maturing June 6, 2022.

The rating is in line with Guatemala's foreign currency Issuer
Default Rating.  Guatemala's 'BB+' ratings are supported by the
country's record of macroeconomic stability, solid debt repayment
and its low public and external debt burdens relative to 'BB'
peers.

Despite Guatemala's history of conservative fiscal management,
significant fiscal consolidation will be difficult to achieve due
to expenditure rigidity and the scope of structural problems the
country faces.  Nonetheless, Guatemala's financing needs remain
lower than its peers supported by its low debt burden and that a
significant portion of its external debt is owed to multilateral
institutions.

CARIBBEAN CEMENT: Incurs $625 Million Loss in First Quarter
-----------------------------------------------------------
Ishena Robinson at Jamaica Observer reports that Trinidad Cement
Limited Group subsidiary Caribbean Cement Company Limited has
reported a consolidated loss for this year's first quarter,
though the group will have to restart debt payment in December as
per the terms of an agreement with lenders.

In a consolidated unaudited financial report for the quarter
ended in March, Carib Cement said it had a loss of $625 million
for the first quarter of 2012, compared with a $374-million loss
before tax credits for the same period last year, according to
Jamaica Observer.  The report relates that the company said this
has resulted in equity for the (TCL) Group now holding a negative
position of $216 million.

"Consequently, it is critical for Carib Cement to generate
positive cash flows from operations by the end of 2012," said the
financial report, Jamaica Observer notes.

Jamaica Observer says that parent company Trinidad Cement Limited
increased its support to Carib Cement during the quarter,
according to the report.  This was possible through a moratorium
the TCL Group received on its debt servicing obligations last
January, which has postponed payments until this December,
according Jamaica Observer.  The report says that the TCL Group's
current liabilities exceed its current assets by over $1 billion
as of the most recent quarter.

Jamaica Observer discloses that Carib Cement's revenue for the
quarter increased by over 11%, up from the $2.1 billion reported
at the end of March last year.  This growth was largely as a
result of price adjustments, as well as an increase in exports
resulting from a strike this year at TCL, the report relays.
However, operating costs counteracted the jump in revenue, said
Carib Cement, Jamaica Observer notes.

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
