BANCO CONTINENTAL: Moody's Assigns 'Ba3' Global FC Debt Rating
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a Ba3 foreign currency debt
rating to Banco Continental S.A.E.C.A.'s (Continental) senior debt
issuance of up to US$ 200 million and maximum tenor of up to 10
years. The Notes will be governed by the laws of the State of New
York.

The outlook on the debt rating is stable.

The following ratings were assigned to Banco Continental
S.A.E.C.A.:

Global Foreign-Currency Debt Rating: Ba3, stable outlook

Ratings Rationale

Moody's explained that the foreign currency senior unsecured debt
rating derives from Continental's Ba2 global local currency
deposit rating.  However, the bond rating is constrained by
Paraguay's Ba3 country ceiling for foreign currency bonds.

Banco Continental S.A.E.C.A. is headquartered in Asunción,
Paraguay, and it had assets of US$1.9 billion and equity of US$174
million as of December 2011.

AGRENCO LTD: Negotiates Partnerships to Resume Activities
---------------------------------------------------------
Fabiola Moura at Bloomberg News reports that Agrenco Ltd. said it
is negotiating partnerships in order to find a way to resume its
industrial activities and fulfill its recovery plan, according to
a regulatory filing.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
Nov. 15, 2011, EXAME.com said that Agrenco Limited decided
to suspend its production and cut jobs after creditors rejected a
proposal to contribute to a mutual fund that formed part of its
new reorganization plan.  Agrenco Limited plans to use the money
raised from the fund to restart operations at its Alto Araguaia
and Caarapo processing plants, according to EXAME.com.  The report
related that without the needed contribution for the mutual fund
operations will be suspended.

Headquartered in Saso Paulo, Brazil, Agrenco Ltd. is a provider of
integrated and customized solutions for agribusiness, with global
operations.


BANCO CRUZEIRO: FGC to Pay BRL2.2BB Guarantees if Liquidated
------------------------------------------------------------
Francisco Marcelino at Bloomberg News reports that Brazil's
privately owned deposit insurance fund FGC would have to spend
BRL2.2 billion in guaranteed payments if Banco Cruzeiro do Sul SA
is liquidated, Antonio Carlos Bueno told journalists.

Mr. Bueno said FGC isn't responsible for the bank's overseas debt,
worth BRL2.8 billion, according to Bloomberg News.   Mr. Bueno,
Bloomberg News relates that the bank would honor this debt on its
own, according to him.

Based in Sao Paulo, Banco Cruzeiro do Sul S.A. had total
unconsolidated assets of R$11.5 billion (US$6.2 billion) and
equity of R$1.2 billion (US$644.5 million) as of December 31,
2011.

                       *     *     *

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
June 7, 2012, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered our long-
and short-term ratings on Banco Cruzeiro do Sul to 'CC/C' from
'B+/B' and its national scale long- and short-term ratings to
'brCC/brC' from 'brBBB/brA-3'.  "We have also placed the ratings
on CreditWatch with developing implications," S&P said.


CENTRAIS ELETRICAS: Electric Regulator Proposes 6.7% Tariff Rise
----------------------------------------------------------------
Mario Sergio Lima of Bloomberg News reports that Nelson Hubner,
the general director of Brazilian electric energy regulatory
agency, Aneel, proposed a 6.7% higher tariff for Centrais
Eletricas do Para SA.

The proposal will have a public evaluation to determine the
final figure, to be made effective on Aug. 7, Mr. Hubner told
reporters, according to Bloomberg News.

Bloomberg News relates that the company from the Brazilian
northern state of Para has filed for bankruptcy and presented a
recovery plan on May 4.  In the document, Celpa said to expect
Aneel to grant a 10.33% tariff increase as one of the premises for
the company to be able to pay their debt holders, Bloomberg News
notes.

Bloomberg News says Celpa's bankruptcy has led its parent, Rede
Energia SA, to seek to renegotiate dollar-bond terms after the
securities plunged and Fitch Ratings cut the company's credit
rating to one level above default.

CELPA, headquartered in Belem, owns a 30-year concession contract
that expires in 2028 to distribute electricity to 143 cities in
the state of Para. CELPA is controlled by Rede Energia S.A.
(REDE), which has a direct and indirect participation of 61.4% of
CELPA's total capital.

                           *     *     *

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on March 5, 2012,
Moody's downgraded the Issuer ratings of Centrais Eletricas do
Para (CELPA) to Ca from B3 on the global scale and to Ca.br from
B1.br on the Brazilian national scale. At the same time, Moody's
downgraded to Ca from B3 the rating of the senior unsecured 5-
year US$250 million bonds issued by CELPA. Following this rating
action, Moody's will withdraw both ratings given that CELPA filed
for court protection under the Brazilian bankruptcy and
reorganization law (Judicial Recovery).

VITRO SAB: Confronts Bondholders in Bid to Impose Bankruptcy Plan
-----------------------------------------------------------------
David McLaughlin and Brendan Case at Bloomberg News report that
after the U.S. recession and bad bet on derivatives contracts sent
Vitro, S.A.B. de C.V. into bankruptcy, the company has a
restructuring plan in place.  At least in Mexico, Bloomberg News
relates.

Vitro is asking U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Harlin DeWayne Hal in Dallas
to enforce the plan and stop litigation by debt holders who have
been fighting to collect on US$1.2 billion in defaulted bonds,
according to Bloomberg News.

Bloomberg News relates that the bondholders have called the plan,
which was approved b a Mexican court, "a testament to audacity,
brazen manipulation and greed."  Enforcing it in the U.S. would be
"manifestly contrary" to public policy, they said in court papers
obtained by Bloomberg News.

Bloomberg News says that the judge must weigh whether the Mexican
court's approval of Vitro's plan should be given deference or it
conflicts too much with U.S. law and should be rejected, said
Madlyn Primoff.

Bloomberg News notes that Vitro SAB and bondholders have been
fighting over the restructuring in Mexican and U.S. courts, with
creditors suing Vitro subsidiaries that guaranteed company debt to
recover what they're owed.

Bloomberg News says that the Vitro SAB wants to put an end to the
litigation, saying in court papers that bondholders want to "bring
Vitro to its knees by destabilizing its business and interfering
with its relationships with its customers."

Vitro Sab, Bloomberg News relays, said that the bondholders'
appeal in Mexico or the restructuring there didn't stop it from
being implemented.  The plan, the report notes, provides US$814.7
million in new 8% notes and US$109.6 million in convertible bonds.

Bloomberg News discloses that bondholders argue that Hale should
reject the bankruptcy plan in part because shareholders are
retaining value while creditors aren't being paid in full.
Bloomberg News relates that they also oppose discharging the
guaranty obligations of subsidiaries even though the units aren't
in bankruptcy.  Enforcing the plan would undermine international
credit markets and raise the cost of capital in emerging markets,
they added, Bloomberg News adds.

                         About Vitro SAB

Headquartered in Monterrey, Mexico, Vitro, S.A.B. de C.V. (BMV:
VITROA; NYSE: VTO), through its two subsidiaries, Vitro Envases
Norteamerica, SA de C.V. and Vimexico, S.A. de C.V., is a global
glass producer, serving the construction and automotive glass
markets and glass containers needs of the food, beverage, wine,
liquor, cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries.

Vitro is the largest manufacturer of glass containers and flat
glass in Mexico, with consolidated net sales in 2009 of MXN23,991
million (US$1.837 billion).

Vitro defaulted on its debt in 2009, and sought to restructure
around US$1.5 billion in debt, including US$1.2 billion in notes.
Vitro launched an offer to buy back or swap US$1.2 billion in debt
from bondholders.  The tender offer would be consummated with a
bankruptcy filing in Mexico and Chapter 15 filing in the United
States.  Vitro said noteholders would recover as much as 73% by
exchanging existing debt for cash, new debt or convertible bonds.

            Concurso Mercantil & Chapter 15 Proceedings

Vitro SAB on Dec. 13, 2010, filed its voluntary petition for a
pre-packaged Concurso Plan in the Federal District Court for
Civil and Labor Matters for the State of Nuevo Leon, commencing
its voluntary concurso mercantil proceedings -- the Mexican
equivalent of a prepackaged Chapter 11 reorganization.  Vitro SAB
also commenced parallel proceedings under Chapter 15 of the U.S.
Bankruptcy Code (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 10-16619) in Manhattan
on Dec. 13, 2010, to seek U.S. recognition and deference to its
bankruptcy proceedings in Mexico.

Early in January 2011, the Mexican Court dismissed the Concurso
Mercantil proceedings.  But an appellate court in Mexico
reinstated the reorganization in April 2011.  Following the
reinstatement, Vitro SAB on April 14, 2011, re-filed a petition
for recognition of its Mexican reorganization in U.S. Bankruptcy
Court in Manhattan (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 11- 11754).

The Vitro parent received sufficient acceptances of its
reorganization by using the US$1.9 billion in debt owing to
subsidiaries to vote down opposition by bondholders.  The holders
of US$1.2 billion in defaulted bonds opposed the Mexican
reorganization plan because shareholders could retain ownership
while bondholders aren't being paid in full.

Vitro announced in March 2012 that it has implemented the
reorganization plan approved by a judge in Monterrey, Mexico.

In the present Chapter 15 case, the Debtor seeks to block any
creditor suits in the U.S. pending the reorganization in Mexico.

                      Chapter 11 Proceedings

A group of noteholders opposed the exchange -- namely Knighthead
Master Fund, L.P., Lord Abbett Bond-Debenture Fund, Inc.,
Davidson Kempner Distressed Opportunities Fund LP, and Brookville
Horizons Fund, L.P.  Together, they held US$75 million, or
approximately 6% of the outstanding bond debt.  The Noteholder
group commenced involuntary bankruptcy cases under Chapter 11 of
the U.S. Bankruptcy Code against Vitro Asset Corp. (Bankr. N.D.
Tex. Case No. 10-47470) and 15 other affiliates on Nov. 17, 2010.

Vitro engaged Susman Godfrey, L.L.P. as U.S. special litigation
counsel to analyze the potential rights that Vitro may exercise
in the United States against the ad hoc group of dissident
bondholders and its advisors.

A larger group of noteholders, known as the Ad Hoc Group of Vitro
Noteholders -- comprised of holders, or investment advisors to
holders, which represent approximately US$650 million of the
Senior Notes due 2012, 2013 and 2017 issued by Vitro -- was not
among the Chapter 11 petitioners, although the group has
expressed concerns over the exchange offer.  The group says the
exchange offer exposes Noteholders who consent to potential
adverse consequences that have not been disclosed by Vitro.  The
group is represented by John Cunningham, Esq., and Richard
Kebrdle, Esq. at White & Case LLP.

A bankruptcy judge in Fort Worth, Texas, denied involuntary
Chapter 11 petitions filed against four U.S. subsidiaries.  On
April 6, 2011, Vitro SAB agreed to put Vitro units -- Vitro
America LLC and three other U.S. subsidiaries -- that were
subject to the involuntary petitions into voluntary Chapter 11.
The Texas Court on April 21 denied involuntary petitions against
the eight U.S. subsidiaries that didn't consent to being in
Chapter 11.

Kurtzman Carson Consultants is the claims and notice agent to
Vitro America, et al.  Alvarez & Marsal North America LLC, is the
Debtors' operations and financial advisor.

The official committee of unsecured creditors appointed in the
Chapter 11 cases of Vitro America, et al., has selected Sarah
Link Schultz, Esq., at Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP, in
Dallas, Texas, and Michael S. Stamer, Esq., Abid Qureshi, Esq.,
and Alexis Freeman, Esq., at Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP,
in New York, as counsel.  Blackstone Advisory Partners L.P.
serves as financial advisor to the Committee.

The U.S. Vitro companies sold their assets to American Glass
Enterprises LLC, an affiliate of Sun Capital Partners Inc., for
US$55 million.

U.S. subsidiaries of Vitro SAB are having their cases converted to
liquidations in Chapter 7, court records in January 2012 show.  In
December, the U.S. Trustee in Dallas filed a motion to convert the
subsidiaries' cases to liquidations in Chapter 7.  The Justice
Department's bankruptcy watchdog said US$5.1 million in bills were
run up in bankruptcy and hadn't been paid.

* PANAMA: IDB Loan for US$70 Million to Benefit Students
--------------------------------------------------------
The Inter-American Development Bank approved a loan for US$70
million to provide innovative educational infrastructure to 47
communities in Panama that will benefit more than 38,000 students.
The goal is to expand educational opportunities and encourage
students in marginal and indigenous areas to complete basic
education.

More than a third of Panamanians between the ages of 13 and 17 do
not attend school.  Coverage levels are especially low for the
groups targeted by the program.

The IDB financing will be used to expand and equip 20 primary
schools to include grades seven to nine and construct two model
schools that will have innovative facilities and will employ a new
pedagogical and educational management approach.  These
investments are expected to result in the matriculation of 10,000
new students from preschool through secondary school.

In addition, the program will providing 47 schools with classrooms
designed to facilitate learning.  The basic curriculum will be
updated to prepare students for the challenges of the 21st
century, and training and support will be extended to staff and
faculty in school management, pedagogy, and curriculum content.

The financing was extended for a 25-year term with a grace period
of four years and a variable interest rate based on LIBOR.
Counterpart funding totals US$10 million.

* S&P's Global Default Tally Hikes to 33 After PBG Woes
-------------------------------------------------------
Poland-based engineering and construction company PBG S.A. entered
into a standstill agreement with banks this week.  S&P views the
agreement, which provides PBG with bilateral loans, as an event of
default under its criteria. This raises the 2012 global corporate
default tally to 33, said an article published Thursday by
Standard & Poor's Global Fixed Income Research, titled "Global
Corporate Default Update (May 31 - June 6, 2012)."

Of the total defaults this year, 20 were based in the U.S., seven
in the emerging markets, four in Europe, and two in the other
developed region (Australia, Canada, Japan, and New Zealand). In
comparison, last year, only 16 issuers--10 based in the U.S., two
in New Zealand, two in the emerging markets, one in Europe, and
one in Canada--defaulted during the same period (through June 6).

So far this year, missed payments accounted for 12 defaults,
bankruptcy filings accounted for six, distressed exchanges
accounted for six, and five defaulters were confidential. The
remaining four entities defaulted for various other reasons.

In 2011, 21 issuers defaulted because of missed interest or
principal payments, and 13 because of bankruptcy filings--both of
which were among the top reasons for defaults in 2010. Distressed
exchanges--another top reason for default in 2010--followed with
11 defaults in 2011. Of the remaining defaults, two issuers failed
to finalize refinancing on bank loans, two were subject to
regulatory action, one had its banking license revoked by its
country's central bank, one was appointed a receiver, and two were
confidential.

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
