BANCO RURAL: S&P Lowers Issuer Credit Rating to 'D'
---------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its issuer credit
ratings on Banco Rural S.A. (Rural) to 'D' from 'B-' on global
scale and to 'D' from 'brB' on national scale.  Subsequently, S&P
withdrew the ratings.

On August 2, the Central Bank announced the liquidation of Rural,
given its financial weaknesses and lack of a viable recuperation
plan.  In 2011, the regulator required the bank to inject
R$65 million, reduce exposure, and recognize losses, and in 2012
to inject another R$100 million to comply with minimum capital
requirements.  In late 2012, S&P downgraded the bank on weak
capital, deteriorating asset quality, and losses.

Following the bank's liquidation, S&P downgraded it to 'D',
reflecting its understanding that the bank is currently unable to
service debt, process transactions, and fulfill its obligations,
according to terms agreed with customers.  S&P has also withdrawn
its ratings, because it has insufficient reliable information to
maintain the ratings on Rural.

* DOMINICAN REP: Firms Blame 15% 1H Drop on Spreading Informality
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Dominican Today reports that EFE said sales fell as much as 15% in
the first half, according to the National Business Organization
(ONEC), which blamed it on what it affirms is rising informality
in the Dominican Republic.

The ONEC said sagging sales have forced many companies to cut jobs
and postpone the opening of new stores, resulting in a negative
impact on the Dominican economy, according to Dominican Today.

In a statement, Dominican Today notes that the business grouping
said among the causes of the fall is the "inconsiderate" growth in
the sales by informal commerce, whose promoters in "most cases pay
no taxes and sell goods of dubious origin."

As an example the ONCE cited the Dominican Textiles Association's
(ADITEX) recent denouncement to the Customs Agency, that numerous
containers arrive in the country declared as used garments, when
in fact contain liquors, appliances and new clothing, the report
relates.

The report discloses that the organization criticized that while
formal businesses are continually audited and taxes, "informal
outlets, which operate outside the tax radar, are growing."

SAGICOR JAMAICA: Gets Court Approval to Restructure Operations
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Gleaner reports that Sagicor Jamaica has got court approval to
restructure its operations under which all companies within the
group will become subsidiaries of a new holding company.

Under the new scheme the new Sagicor Jamaica Group will become the
parent of insurance company Sagicor Life Jamaica Limited,
securities dealer Sagicor Investments Jamaica Limited, and
commercial bank Sagicor Bank Jamaica Limited, according to The
Gleaner.

The report notes that Sagicor Jamaica is the latest financial
conglomerate to undergo reorganization in line with new laws being
devised by the Bank of Jamaica.

The scheme will result in all current shareholders of Sagicor Life
Jamaica (SCJ) exchanging their SLJ stock for shares of equal value
in the new holding company, the report relates.

"That means the value of the new shares to be issued in Sagicor
Group will be identical in value to the shares previously held in
SLJ," the company said in a statement obtained by the news agency.

The new holding company will list on the Jamaica Stock Exchange.

Company chairman, Richard Byles, was unavailable for comment up to
press time.

However, The Gleaner says that the release noted that the
reorganisation would "align the group's organizational structure
with the requirements of new omnibus legislation for deposit-
taking institutions, which is soon to be promulgated by
Parliament."

It said the day-to-day operations of the three entities would be
unaffected by the reorganization, the report relates.

                          Reorganization

Sagicor Jamaica commenced operations in 1970 as Life of Jamaica
Limited.

The report recalls that the insurance company was bailed out by
the Jamaican Government in the 1990s and subsequently sold to a
Barbados operation.  Its name and that of other local subsidiaries
were later changed to align with the brand identity of ultimate
parent Sagicor Financial Corporation, the report relates.

The boards of the three companies have already approved the new
group structure, the report says.

The report discloses that Sagicor Jamaica said it would seek the
approval of shareholders at a special meeting on a date that is
still to be determined.  The report relays that the reorganization
also requires approval of the Financial Services Commission and
the Bank of Jamaica.

The insurance company said it expects to complete the process by
September.

The report says that the reorganization by Sagicor Jamaica comes
six years after Scotiabank Jamaica executed a court-sanctioned
scheme in 2007 in which the shares in Bank of Nova Scotia Jamaica
were transferred to newly created parent company, Scotia Group
Jamaica.

Earlier this year, the report discloses, National Commercial Bank
Jamaica similarly announced it would be creating a holding company
in which the bank would become a subsidiary.

NCB said its reorganization would happen before the end of its
current financial year, which closes September 30, the report
notes.

The report says that the Bank of Jamaica requires large financial
groups with deposit-taking functions to restructure to facilitate
comprehensive supervision of their businesses.

The rearrangements are occurring ahead of the tabling of omnibus
banking legislation due by March 2014, which is meant to tighten
supervision of the financial sector, the report relays. It is also
expected to expand the powers of the central bank as police chief
of systemic risk, the report notes.

The omnibus law is a condition of the four-year IMF bailout
agreement for Jamaica signed in May, the report adds.

                           *     *     *

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
June 17, 2013, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services placed its 'BB+'
financial strength and counterparty credit ratings on Sagicor Life
Inc. and its 'BB' rating on Sagicor Finance Ltd.'s $150 million,
10-year senior unsecured notes on CreditWatch with negative
implications.


* JAMAICA: Trade Deficit Narrows in First Quarter
-------------------------------------------------
RJR News reports that Jamaica's trade deficit narrowed slightly as
imports fell faster than exports in the first four months of the
year.

The trade deficit, which shows how much more is spent on imports
over exports, was US$1.5 billion at the end of April, according to
RJR News.

The report relates that imports were down 4 percent as the value
of oil, machinery and manufactured goods all declined.

Ratings Rationale:

These rating actions reflect Moody's higher severity of loss
assumptions on defaulted loans in the affected transactions.
Moody's has increased its severity of loss assumptions due to:

i. The limited real estate owned (REO) activity in the Sofol RMBS
market, despite the high level of loan defaults;

ii. The growing recovery lag;

iii. Available data from servicers for the affected transactions
and market data signaling negative trends for the severity of
loss; and

iv. Moody's expectation that a considerable portion of mortgage
insurance (MI) policies will not result in a payment from the MI
provider.

Moody's is now assuming a higher average severity of loss of 74%
for the thirteen transactions benefiting from mortgage insurance
policies (versus 47% previously) and 85% for those without such
policies (versus 61% previously).

In the case of deals without MI policies, Moody's believes that
their average severity of loss could ultimately approach 100%.
This view takes into account the following assumptions used to
calculate the severity of loss: i) an average current loan-to-
value (LTV) greater than 100% on defaulted loans given the
negative amortization of inflation-indexed loans, ii) real estate
owned (REO) sales prices reflecting an average discount of 30% or
more to the original appraised value, iii) foreclosure costs
representing 20% or more of the REO sales price, and iv) unpaid
and accrued mortgage interest expense over a recovery lag of at
least 6 years.

However, due to the potential variability of the severity
assumption, based on limited historical REO sales in the sector,
these rating actions assume a recovery rate of 15% prior to giving
any benefit for MI protection. Moody's also notes that some
servicers plan to implement loan modification programs featuring
principal forgiveness, which may lead to some recoveries in the
long-term.

In the case of transactions with MI, in taking this rating action,
Moody's assumed that half of the outstanding MI policies covering
defaulted loans would not result in a payment from the MI
provider. On average, Moody's assumed a lower severity of 74% for
deals with MI as compared to 85% for those without MI.

The ratings of the affected securities may be sensitive to the
severity of loss assumption. Moody's has calculated how the model-
indicated global scale ratings of the affected certificates would
change in a worst-case scenario, that is, if the severity of loss
assumption equaled 100%:

MXMACCB 04U Class A, rating would change to Caa3 (sf) from B3 (sf)
if the current severity assumption of 74% were to increase to
100%; lifetime projected losses would increase to 50% from 37% of
the current pool balance.

MXMACCB 05U Class A, rating would change to B2 (sf) from Ba1 (sf)
if the current severity assumption of 73% were to increase to
100%; lifetime projected losses would increase to 40% from 30% of
the current pool balance.

MXMACCB 06U Class A, rating would change to Caa3 (sf) from Caa2
(sf) if the current severity assumption of 73% were to increase to
100%; lifetime projected losses would increase to 50% from 37% of
the current pool balance.

MFCB 05U Class A, rating would change to Caa2 (sf) from B3 (sf) if
the current severity assumption of 74% were to increase to 100%;
lifetime projected losses would increase to 33% from 24% of the
current pool balance.

METROCB 06U Class A, rating would change to Caa3 (sf) from Caa2
(sf) if the current severity assumption of 75% were to increase to
100%; lifetime projected losses would increase to 47% from 35% of
the current pool balance.

MTROCB 07U Class A, rating would change to Ca (sf) from Caa3 (sf)
if the current severity assumption of 78% were to increase to
100%; lifetime projected losses would increase to 53% from 42% of
the current pool balance.

MTROCB 08U Class A, rating would remain at Ca (sf) if the current
severity assumption of 79% were to increase to 100%; lifetime
projected losses would increase to 53% from 42% of the current
pool balance.

CREYCB 06U Class A, rating would change to Caa3 (sf) from Caa2
(sf) if the current severity assumption of 73% were to increase to
100%; lifetime projected losses would increase to 56% from 41% of
the current pool balance.

CREYCB 06-2U Class B, rating would remain at C (sf) if the current
severity assumption of 73% were to increase to 100%; lifetime
projected losses would increase to 56% from 41% of the current
pool balance.

PATRICB 06U Class A, rating would change to B2 (sf) from Ba2 (sf)
if the current severity assumption of 85% were to increase to
100%; lifetime projected losses would increase to 38% from 32% of
the current pool balance.

PATRICB 07U Class A, rating would change to Caa2 (sf) from B3 (sf)
if the current severity assumption of 85% were to increase to
100%; lifetime projected losses would increase to 48% from 41% of
the current pool balance.

HICOACB 06U Class A, rating would change to B3 (sf) from Ba3 (sf)
if the current severity assumption of 73% were to increase to
100%; lifetime projected losses would increase to 34% from 25% of
the current pool balance.

BRHSCCB 05U Class A, rating would change to Caa2 (sf) from B2 (sf)
if the current severity assumption of 73% were to increase to
100%; lifetime projected losses would increase to 54% from 40% of
the current pool balance.

BRHSCCB 06U Class A, rating would change to B3 (sf) from Ba3 (sf)
if the current severity assumption of 73% were to increase to
100%; lifetime projected losses would increase to 35% from 26% of
the current pool balance.

BRHSCCB 06-5U Class A, rating would change to Ba3 (sf) from Ba1
(sf) if the current severity assumption of 74% were to increase to
100%; lifetime projected losses would increase to 33% from 25% of
the current pool balance.

BRHCCB 07-2U Class A-2, underlying rating would remain at Ca (sf)
if the current severity assumption of 85% were to increase to
100%; lifetime projected losses would increase to 66% from 56% of
the current pool balance.

BRHCCB08-2U Class A-2, rating would change to C (sf) from Ca (sf)
if the current severity assumption of 75% were to increase to
100%; lifetime projected losses would increase to 71% from 53% of
the current pool balance.

The methodologies used in these ratings were 'Moody's Approach to
Rating RMBS Using the MILAN Framework', published in May 2013,
'Moody's Approach to Monitoring Residential Mortgage-Backed
Securitizations in Mexico' published in August 2009 and "Moody's
Approach to Rating Structured Finance Securities in Default"
published in November 2009.

Moody's considered the servicer's practices and considers them
adequate. Moody's notes that these rating actions reflect
servicers' limited ability to successfully foreclose on defaulted
loans and to liquidate REO properties.

Period of time covered in the financial information used to
determine the rating was October 30, 2004 to May 31, 2013.

Moody's National Scale Ratings (NSRs) are intended as relative
measures of creditworthiness among debt issues and issuers within
a country, enabling market participants to better differentiate
relative risks. NSRs differ from Moody's global scale ratings in
that they are not globally comparable with the full universe of
Moody's rated entities, but only with NSRs for other rated debt
issues and issuers within the same country. NSRs are designated by
a ".nn" country modifier signifying the relevant country, as in
".mx" for Mexico.


* High Debt Burden Cues Moody's to Cut Chihuahua's Rating to Ba2
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's de Mexico downgraded the issuer ratings of the state of
Chihuahua to A2.mx from A1.mx (Mexico National Scale) and to Ba2
from Ba1 (Global Scale, local currency). The outlook remains
negative.

Ratings Rationale:

The downgrade of the issuer ratings reflects the sizable cash
financing requirements posted during the last two years, which
have deteriorated Chihuahua's liquidity position and prompted a
rapid increase in the levels of net direct and indirect debt. The
negative outlook reflects the various challenges that the state
will face redressing its key financial metrics in the near to
medium term.

During the last two years, Chihuahua registered significant cash
financing requirements equivalent to -12%, on average, of total
revenues. The cash financing requirements have resulted from a
structural misalignment between revenue and expenditure growth,
mainly reflecting current expenditures pressures related to
education and health.

The state has financed part of its cash financing requirements
with short-term lines of credit and accounts payable. Net working
capital (current assets minus current liabilities) deteriorated to
reach -11% of total expenditures at the end of 2012, a very weak
level compared to national peers.

Chihuahua's debt levels have also increased rapidly during the
past five years. The ratio of net direct and indirect debt to
total revenues increased to 31.9% in 2012 from a low 9.0% in 2008.
Nonetheless, the state's debt service (both principal and
interest) continues to be moderate, representing only 1.3% of
total revenues in 2012.

The negative outlook reflects Moody's expectations that the
deterioration in Chihuahua's key metrics could continue in the
near term. Moody's notes that the state plans to undertake various
measures to increase revenues and control its operating
expenditures. Moreover, the state is in the process of refinancing
its short-term debt with long-term debt, which could improve its
liquidity position and reduce its debt ratio to 24% of total
revenues by the end of 2013. Moody's will monitor closely the
results of these measures.

What Could Change The Rating Up/Down

Given the negative outlook on the ratings, Moody's does not expect
upward pressures in the near term. Notwithstanding, a steady
reduction in cash financing requirements, along with the
strengthening of the state's liquidity position, could generate
positive pressure on the ratings. A downgrade of the ratings would
be likely if Chihuahua continues to record sizable cash financing
requirements that lead to further increases in debt levels and a
more negative liquidity position.

The principal methodology used in this rating was Regional and
Local Governments published on January 18, 2013.

CARIBBEAN CEMENT: Shows Signs of Financial Turnaround
-----------------------------------------------------
RJR News reports that Caribbean Cement Company Limited is showing
signs of a financial turnaround with a big decline in losses.

It suffered a consolidated loss of J137 million for the first six
months of 2013 down from J$1.2 billion during the corresponding
period last year, according to RJR News.  The report relates that
this year's loss resulted from J$701 million of non-cash foreign
exchange losses compared to J$136 million in 2012.

RJR News notes that the sale of cement was up and this resulted in
revenue increasing by J$900 million to J$5.6 billion.

In the meantime, RJR News says that Caribbean Cement is
attributing its improved financial performance to increased
revenue from the 3 per cent price adjustment in the domestic
market in April and a doubling of exports in the second quarter.

This was due primarily to the company's entry into the Panama
market, RJR News discloses.

Caribbean Cement also experienced operational gains through
significant improvements in its plant efficiency, in particular
energy consumption, following a US$5 million capital maintenance
and upgrade earlier this year, RJR News relays.

As a result of the improved performance, Caribbean Cement was able
to meet its debt obligations over the last six months, RJR News
adds.

Caribbean Cement Company Limited manufactures and sells cement.

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
