BELVIN'S STORES: Sued by Supplier Butterfield & Vallis
------------------------------------------------------
Food wholesaler Butterfield and Vallis has filed a writ in Supreme
Court against businessman George Swan Jr. and his stores: Belvin's
Variety in Devonshire, Belvin's in Flatts, Belvin's in Happy
Valley and Belvin's in Bailey's Bay, according to Royal Gazette
News.  It's understood there are other creditors, according to the
report.

Customers have reported the four convenience stores, employing
around a dozen staff, have been out of stock of many items
recently, the report realtes.

After taking over Belvin's, Mr. Swan opened Intermezzo Cafe &
Convenience on Court Street last August but that store closed down
just three months later, the report adds.

Last month, the report cites, White's supermarkets in Southside,
St David's and Warwick were closed after Court orders to wind them
up in an effort to repay dozens of creditors.

Royal Gazette News discloses that the Supreme Court gave the go-
ahead to the winding up after hearing a petition by International
Bonded Couriers, signed by 27 other creditors, including
Butterfield and Vallis, Pitt & Company and BGA.  Some 85 staff
lost their jobs, the report relates.

CELPA: Equatorial Inks Deal to Acquire Shares
---------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings views the announcement that Equatorial Energia S.A.,
a holding company in the energy sector, has signed a contract to
acquire 65.18% of Celpa's voting shares for BRL1 as positive.

The transaction should contribute to moving the company out of
bankruptcy protection given support by several of Celpa's
creditors and Equatorial's track record in acquiring and promoting
the turnaround of an energy distribution company, Companhia
Energetica do Maranhao (rated 'AA-(bra)'), several years ago.

As part of the announcement, Equatorial indicated it has reached
conditional agreements with several creditors representing a
majority of its debt, which may include debt maturity extensions,
adjustments in interest payments and possibly debt forgiveness.
It is still unclear if any bondholders of the USD250 million
senior unsecured notes due 2016 are part of this agreement.
Equatorial is expected to inject BRL350 million in new equity as
part of its agreements with creditors.

Fitch will continue to monitor and analyze Celpa's restructuring
process and will define its rating levels after more complete
restructuring details become available.

On Feb. 28, 2012, Fitch downgraded Celpa's Issuer Default Ratings
(IDRs) to 'D' following the company's announcement that it filed
for bankruptcy protection in Brazil.

Fitch currently rates Celpa as follows:

  -- Local and Foreign Currency IDRS 'D';
  -- Long-Term National Scale Rating ) 'D(bra)';
  -- USD250 million senior unsecured notes due in 2016 'C/RR4'.


CENTRAIS ELETRICAS: Moody's Cuts BCA to 'ba2'; Outlook Negative
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's affirmed Centrais Eletricas Brasileiras S/A's (Eletrobras)
Baa2 foreign currency issuer rating on the global scale and at the
same time downgraded its Baseline Credit Assessment (BCA) to ba2
from ba1. Moody's also affirmed the Baa2 foreign currency rating
of the senior unsecured US1.75 billion bond expiring on October
27, 2021. The outlook for all ratings has been changed to negative
from stable.

Ratings Rationale

The Baa2 issuer rating reflects the strong implicit support of
Eletrobras' major shareholder the Brazilian federal government
(Baa2; positive) and the company's dominant position in the
Brazilian electricity market. The ratings are constrained by the
fact Moody's expects credit metrics to become much weaker from
expected lower tariffs going forward along with sizeable capital
expenditures Eletrobras will be making over the medium term, as
well as the evolving corporate governance practices and the risks
of political interference.

The downgrade of the company's BCA to ba2 from ba1 reflects the
material deterioration in the company's credit metrics that
Moody's expects over the medium term in light of the recent
federal government provisional measure # 579 published on
September 11th. The measure will dramatically reduce the
electricity tariffs of sizeable generation and transmission
concessions expiring between 2015 and 2017.

The 579 provisional measure offers electricity utilities the
opportunity to accelerate the renewal of their generation,
transmission and distribution concessions at the start of 2013,
ahead of their scheduled 2015-17 expiry. Because most of the
concession assets have already been largely depreciated, the new
tariffs will be much lower than those in the current energy supply
contracts. Although the utilities are entitled to recover the
costs of their non-depreciated assets, the mechanisms to be used
to calculate and the timing of those potential government
disbursements remains unclear.

Eletrobras, through its unrated subsidiaries CHESF, Furnas, and
Eletronorte, will be the most affected electric utility because it
has approximately 16,000 megawatts (MW) of generating capacity and
around 58,000 kilometers of transmission lines operating under
concessions granted by the federal government expiring between
2015 and 2017 which represents approximately 39% of total
electricity generation capacity and 90% of total transmission grid
of Eletrobras, respectively.

Eletrobras could turn down the government's proposal and maintain
its concessions until they expire but doing so means the
government will revoke those concessions at their expiration,
reimbursing the utilities for any non-depreciated concession
assets. Because Eletrobras is controlled by the federal
government, it undoubtedly is bound to accept the conditions in
the provisional measure to renew its concessions.

The negative outlook reflects the expected deterioration in the
company's credit metrics over the medium term along with
uncertainties as to whether the company will be able to streamline
its operating costs and turn around its distribution utilities as
management has recently indicated it intends to do. In addition,
Moody's expects that the cash flow from the new projects coming on
stream mostly from 2014 through 2016 will not be sufficient to
offset the forecasted shrinkage in cash flow that will start in
2013.

Eletrobras' reduced cash flows under the renewed concessions are
difficult to accurately assess at this stage because the federal
government has not provided any detail on what it considers a
minimum tariff to cover maintenance and operating costs.

Assuming that Eletrobras will accept the conditions to renew its
generation and transmission concessions, Moody's estimates that
the impact of lower generation tariffs and reduced transmission
revenues could reduce the company's annual EBITDA between BRL3.3
billion and BRL7.3 billion, which compares with the company's 2011
consolidated EBITDA of BRL8.7 billion.

Moody's expects the significant reduction in Eletrobras' cash flow
to be partly offset by the indemnification rights the company is
entitled to for the renewal of the concessions. The non-
depreciated portion of the concession assets are expected to be
reimbursed by the federal government by an amount that is very
difficult to predict at this stage but could range between
BRL10 and BRL25 billion in 2013.

What Could Change The Rating Up

Given the expected material deterioration in the company's credit
metrics over the medium term the upgrade of the company's Baa2
issuer rating is unlikely in the short term.

The outlook could be stabilized if the indemnification amount that
Eletrobras is eligible to receive in 2013 is closer to the high
end of Moody's estimate range of BRL25 billion and Moody's views
management's efforts as successful to improve cash generation over
the medium term through the reduction of operating costs and the
execution of new projects as planned.

What Could Change The Rating Down

Pressure to downgrade the rating would grow if deterioration in
the company's credit metrics is more pronounced than what Moody's
now anticipates so that CFO before changes in working capital
becomes lower than 3% over debt for a prolonged period. Such
weaker metrics will occur if management fails to streamline
operating costs and if the cash flow from the new generation and
transmission projects coming on stream in the next three years
falls short of expectations.

In accordance with Moody's methodology for government related
issuers, or GRIs, the Baa2 issuer rating of Eletrobras reflects
the combination of the following inputs:

- Baseline credit assessment (BCA) ba2

- High-level dependence (70%)

- High level of government support (71%-90%)

- The Baa2 rating of the Government of Brazil, which has a
   positive outlook.

Eletrobras is a GRI as defined in Moody's rating methodology "The
Application of Joint Default Analysis to Government Related
Issuers". Moody's methodology for GRIs is to systematically
incorporate into the rating both the stand-alone credit risk
profile or Baseline Credit Assessment (BCA) of the company as well
as an assessment of the likelihood that its government owner would
provide extraordinary support to the company's obligations.

Please refer to Moody's special comments "Rating Government-
Related Issuers in Americas Corporate Finance" and "Government-
Related Issuers: July 2006 Update" at moodys.com for additional
information on GRIs .

Eletrobras' electricity generation has installed capacity of 42
GW, which is equivalent to 37% of Brazil's total generation
installed capacity, including the 7 GW capacity of Itaipu.
Eletrobras' transmission lines above 230KV comprise 54,109 Km or
around 53% of the country's total high voltage transmission lines.
The distribution business, largely consisting of small
distribution companies in the North and Center West portion of the
country sold14,416GWh in the last twelve months period ended on
June 30, 2012.

Eletrobras is also a financing vehicle with its portfolio of
around BRL28 billion in loans granted to a diverse range of
Brazilian electricity companies, including the US$6.0 billion
loans to Itaipu. Eletrobras is also the Federal Government's
vehicle to manage some specific funds of the Brazilian electricity
industry such as RGR (Global Reversion Reserve), CCC (Fuel
Consumption Account), CDE (Energy Development Account) and certain
social programs such as the "Light For All" aimed at extending
electricity to the most remote regions of the country.

UC RUSAL: To Refinance Debt, Expects to Reach Deal With Lenders
---------------------------------------------------------------
RJR News reports that Russian aluminum giant UC Rusal, which has a
major stake in Jamaica's bauxite/alumina industry, expects to
reach a deal with its lenders within six months to refinance part
of an US$11 billion debt burden.

It will agree to new loan conditions by the end this year before
its covenant holiday expires, according to RJR News.

The report relates that a spokesman for Rusal said the aluminum
giant, which has been battered by persistently weak prices for the
metal, was already in talks with existing and new lenders.

Rusal started a covenant holiday in March, striking a deal which
means that conditions on its current loan agreements with
international and Russian lenders would not be tested for up to 12
months, the report notes.

* NICARAGUA: Gets US$56.2MM Financing for Health Care Units
-----------------------------------------------------------
The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) approved US$56.2 million
in financing to Nicaragua for a program to improve health care,
benefitting some 2.3 million people living in vulnerable areas.
The funds will finance the construction and rehabilitation of 80
health care centers as well as the integration of the health
system's clinical and management areas in seven targeted local
systems (SILAIS).

The program is expected to help Nicaragua bring down teen birth
rates in targeted areas from 28.5 percent to 22 percent and the
hospitalization rate for infantile diarrhea from 7.8 per 1,000
children to 6.4 per 1,000 by the end of the five-year program.

The program entails rehabilitating three hospitals, building or
rehabilitating 55 primary care units and 20 community health
network units, including maternity homes and housing units for
personnel in remote areas.  A regional medical supply warehouse
will be built in Nicaragua's central region to ensure a timely
response to disasters.

In addition, the program will improve the health care system by
integrating its clinical and management areas.  This change will
foster the continuity of treatment as well as ongoing assessment
and risk evaluation, referral/counter-referral, and medical-record
keeping.

The program will help raise health care professionals' awareness
of indigenous and Afro-descendant peoples' cultures and values and
include traditional medicine into treatment protocols.  Twelve
thousand pregnant women will be signed up for a safe motherhood
plan, focusing on four areas with higher maternal mortality rates.
It will also promote the use of institutional perinatal services,
and explore the benefits of maternity homes.

The financing consists of US$28.1 million from the IDB's Ordinary
Capital for a 30-year term, with a 5 1/2-year grace period and a
fixed interest rate, plus US$28.1 million from the concessional
Fund for Special Operations for a 40-year term, with a 40-year
grace period and a 0.25% interest.

PICK & SAVE: Objections to Employee Claims Overruled
----------------------------------------------------
Bankruptcy Judge Enrique S. Lamoutte overruled objections by Pick
& Save Inc. against the claims filed by former employees Jose I.
Perez Nieves and Oscar Munoz Garces.  Pick & Save alleges the
claims were filed after the deadline for filing proofs of claim
and must therefore be disallowed.  Messrs. Perez Nieves and Munoz
Garces countered that their claims are not barred and that they
were diligent in filing them.

Messrs. Perez and Munoz received letters discharging them from
their work with the Debtor on July 29, 2010, a few days before the
bankruptcy filing.  The employees said their delay was because the
Debtor did not report their claim to the Bankruptcy Court or the
U.S. Trustee at any time.

On Dec. 27 and 28, 2010, the former employees filed complaints
before the Puerto Rico Court of First Instance for damages against
the Debtor on account of alleged wrongful termination of their
respective employments.  They were both represented by the same
legal counsel, Attorney Virgilio J. Gonzalez-Perez.  In both
cases, the Debtor was served with copies of the complaints and on
Jan. 26, 2011, proceeded to file motions to stay the state court
proceedings.  Consequently, the PR Court of First Instance issued
judgments in both state court cases staying and closing them for
statistical purposes due to the Debtor's bankruptcy filing.  Both
motions requesting the stay of the state court proceedings were
properly served on the former employees through Attorney Gonzalez,
as was the Judgment issued by the PR Court of First Instance in
both cases.

On Sept. 20 and 22, 2011, the former employees filed their claims
as general unsecured creditors.  On Dec. 16, 2011, they amended
their Claims to request priority under 11 U.S.C. 507(a)(4).

The Court's order said the former employees may be entitled
priority up to the amount of $11,725 pursuant to 11 U.S.C. Section
507(a)(4)(A).  The Court, however, denied the request for
administrative priority.

A copy of the Court's Sept. 13, 2012 Opinion and Order is
available at http://is.gd/5DqQ1sfrom Leagle.com.

                         About Pick & Save

Pick & Save, Inc., in Bayamon, Puerto Rico, filed for Chapter 11
bankruptcy (Bankr. D. P.R. Case No. 10-07005) on Aug. 2, 2010.
Carmen D. Conde Torres, Esq., serves as the Debtor's counsel.  In
its petition, the Debtor estimated under $50,000 in assets and
under $10 million in debts.  A copy of the Company's list of 20
largest unsecured creditors filed together with the petition is
available for free at http://bankrupt.com/misc/prb10-07005.pdf
The petition was signed by Noel Soler, president.

Pick & Save on Nov. 29, 2010, filed its first Chapter 11 Plan of
Reorganization and Notice to Creditors.  On April 21, 2011, the
Debtor filed an Amended Plan of Reorganization.  On May 2, 2011,
the court entered the Order confirming the Debtor's Amended Plan
of Reorganization.

Monday's edition of the TCR-LA delivers a list of indicative

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

Nothing in the TCR-LA constitutes an offer or solicitation to buy

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
