BANCO SANTANDER: Moody's Rates Expected Note Issuance 'Ba3'
-----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Latin America assigned a Ba3 global local currency debt
rating to Banco Santander Rio's fourth expected issuance of up to
ARS 250 million, which will be due in 18 months, and to the fifth
expected issuance up to ARS 250 million, which will be due in 36
months, both under the bank's $500 million medium-term note
program. At the same time, Moody's Latin America assigned a Aaa.ar
national scale local currency debt rating to both expected
issuances.

The outlook for all ratings is negative, following the negative
outlook on the sovereign ratings.

The following ratings were assigned to Banco Santander Rio S.A.'s
expected issuances under the debt program:

Fourth Issuance up to ARS 250 million:

Ba3 Global Local Currency Debt Rating, negative outlook

Aaa.ar Argentina National Scale Local Currency Debt Rating,
negative outlook

Fifth Issuance up to ARS 250 million:

Ba3 Global Local Currency Debt Rating, negative outlook

Aaa.ar Argentina National Scale Local Currency Debt Rating,
negative outlook

Ratings Rationale:

Moody's explained that the local currency senior unsecured debt
rating derives from the bank's Ba3 global local currency deposit
rating, Moody's also noted that seniority was taken into
consideration in the assignment of the debt ratings.

The Ba3 global local currency deposit rating of Santander Ro
derives from the bank's b3 BCA and Moody's assessment of the
moderate probability of parental support to be provided by its
shareholder Santander Spain, rated Baa2 with negative outlook. The
standalone rating captures Santander's well established franchise
as the largest private bank in the Argentinean banking system, as
well as its diversified earnings as it expands its range of
business activities and customer base. The bank's well-defined
footprint in the corporate and consumer lending segment ensures
good asset quality. Santander's rating also incorporates its
significant payroll accounts base, which provides not only a
significant client base for cross selling, but supports asset
quality because of the low risk nature of the product, while
ensuring a significant share of core, inexpensive deposits, which
lowers its cost of funding.

Banco Santander Rio S.A. is headquartered in Buenos Aires, with
assets of ARS 58,95 billion and equity of ARS 7,67 billion as of
June 2013.

The principal methodology used in this rating was Global Banks
published in May 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.

TUCKER'S POINT: Ernst & Young Provides Update on Receivership
-------------------------------------------------------------
Don Burgess at BDA SUN News reports that Ernst & Young are aiming
to dig the Tucker's Point Club out from underneath a mountain of
debt.

Roy Bailey and Keiran Hutchison of Ernst & Young Ltd., Bermuda
were appointed on Sept. 19 as joint receivers of Bermuda
Properties Ltd and certain subsidiaries which own the Tucker's
Point resort, according to BDA SUN News.

The report notes that the receivership only affects the companies
that own the property and do not affect Rosewood Hotels & Resorts,
who will continue to operate the resort and golf club on a
business as usual basis.

The report relates that Mr. Bailey, who is the lead partner for
the restructuring, said BPL has a "debt mountain" and owes in the
neighborhood of US$150million, which would be more than the
original senior loan.

The report relays that in 2009 the Royal Gazette reported that
Castle Harbour Ltd, an operating subsidiary of holding company
BPL, took out a total loan of BM$142.25 million in 2007 from HSBC
Bermuda (BM$111.25 million), Argus (BM$20 million) and BF&M (BM11
million).

BDA SUN News notes that Mr. Bailey said "additional facilities"
have been added to the original loan amounts.  Mr. Bailey said
what's owed to HSBC is "going to be in the region of $100m to
US$120million and the balance is going to be owed to Argus and
BF&M", the report relates.

BDA SUN News discloses that Mr. Bailey wanted to stress that the
jobs of the approximately 300 employees at Tucker's Point were
safe.

                               Review

"We need to undertake a review of the various companies to which
we've been appointed with the operator (Rosewood) that operates
the resort.  The resort is going to continue as normal and
staffing levels are going to be set to the operational needs of
the resort. . . . The fact that this has gone into receivership is
not immediately resulting in any kind of job losses.  Guests and
members -- both present and future -- should have continued
enjoyment of the facilities Tucker's Point has to offer and are
all encouraged to do so. . . . The appointment of receivers is
part of a debt restructuring and will not affect the operation of
the resort.  The proposed restructuring should put Tucker's Point
in a better position to continue operating as a flagship Bermuda
resort in future seasons," the report quoted Mr. Bailey as saying.

The report relates that Mr. Bailey said it was not the intention
to put Tucker's Point on the market for sale "in the immediate
term".

"Ultimately the challenge we have before us is largely to deal
with the debt mountain that has been built up in this group of
companies over a matter of years.  We are not in any immediate
rush or hurry to deal with any change of the ownership of this
resort in terms of selling it to the market," Mr. Bailey said, the
report notes.

The report relates that Mr. Bailey said it is "early days" to form
any views on whether or not to proceed on the controversial
Special Development Order (SDO) which was approved in 2011.

CEAGRO AGRICOLA: Fitch Affirms Issuer Default Ratings at 'B'
------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed the ratings of Ceagro Agricola Ltda
(Ceagro) as follows:

-- Foreign and local currency Issuer Default Ratings (IDRs) at
   'B';
-- National scale rating at 'BBB (bra)';
-- USD100 million senior secured notes due 2016 at 'B/RR4'.

The Rating Outlook is Stable.

The ratings affirmations reflect Ceagro's well-established
position in the highly competitive Brazilian agricultural services
sector, its operating margins in the high single digits.
Constraining factors for the ratings are inherent business risks
related to external factors (logistics, weather) impacting
profitability and liquidity of the company, the size of the
company and its leverage ratio. Fitch anticipates that the group's
net debt/ebitda will remain at about 3.5x at year-end 2013, in
line with the current ratings.

Key Rating Drivers

Established Business Position

Ceagro Agricola Ltda. (Ceagro) has established long-term
relationships with grain producers, suppliers, and off-takers. The
company's profile has benefited from an increase in its operating
scale which has allowed it to purchase fertilizers at lower prices
and increase the volume of barter originations.

Cost Pressure On Ebitda Margin

The group's adjusted EBITDA margin remains strong at about 8.4% at
1H13 compared to trading companies (between 3% and 4%). Fitch
expects the group's EBITDA margin to slightly decline in 2013 due
to recurring input costs inflation (fertilizer and logistics) and
lower Corn prices. Fitch's expectation is based on volume increase
(notably for Corn) and the full consolidation in Ceagro's accounts
of Agroextra Insumos Agricola in 2013. Agroextra is a leading
distributor of Syngenta agricultural products (fertilizers and
services) with an EBITDA of approximately BRL11.0 million as of
FYE11. Agroextra was acquired by Ceagro during 2012 for
approximately BRL20 million. Fitch expects high digit volumes
growth in 2014 thanks to transactions implemented between Ceagro
and the JV C&BI Partners.

HIGH COMMODITY RISK AND SMALL SIZE

Ceagro's small size, lack of geographic and commodity
diversification compared to its large and established competitors
are constraining factors for the rating. The group's export
capacity of soybeans remains constrained by Brazilian port
infrastructures. In 1H13 this has negatively impacted group's
volumes. Soybeans declined by 6.4% year-on-year. Despite lower
commodity prices, the group has been able to maintain its adjusted
EBITDA steady at BRL65.1 million excluding one-off costs of about
BRL7 million.

Working Capital Requirements Impediment To Growth

Trades originated through Ceagro's barter system grew to 52% of
revenue during 2012 from 46% in 2011.The group also implements
some spot transactions. Unlike trades through the barter system,
spot market trades require working capital for short periods of
time and have lower profit margins.

Asset Light Model

Ceagro has a minimal amount of balance sheet assets. It depends on
rentals for transportation and storage. While this has not been a
problem in the past, the cost of renting equipment may rise in the
future and compress operating margins. The company is investing in
a new storage facility this year. Fitch understands that the
company will increase its own storage capacity in a financial
model that will not require large amount of capex in the coming
years. Ceagro will arrange new long-term lease agreements with
warehouse owners to accommodate its growth strategy.

Increased Net Leverage

Ceagro's LTM Net Debt to EBITDA increased to 3.5x at June 2013
from 3.4x at FYE12 because of the group's growth strategy and
delays related to logistics issues. Fitch expects Ceagro's Net
Debt to EBITDA to remain at about 3.5x at FYE13. Using Fitch RMI
(readily marketable inventories adjustments) the net adjusted
leverage was at 3.0x at June-2013.

Short-Term Financing

The liquidity situation of the company remains weak with a
liquidity ratio (cash/short-term debt) at 0.4x at June 2013 (0.4x
at year-end 2012). This was due to the group's growth strategy,
financing through short-term export-financing transactions.
However, the group's liquidity is supported by the liquidity of
its commodities (corn and soybean). Using Fitch RMI, the group's
liquidity score was at 1.1x at end-June 2013, and there is no
other significant debt repayment before 2016 (when the USD100 bond
matures) which gives Fitch comfort on the group's liquidity

Rating Sensitivities

Considerations that could lead to a negative rating action (Rating
or Outlook) include an increase in the company's net debt/ebitda
leverage above the range of 3.5 - 4.0x over a sustained period
could lead to a negative rating action. Leverage could increase
either by weakening profitability, the launch of a large debt-
financed investment program or sudden drop in trading volumes.
Changes in its risk management, resulting in a higher exposure to
commodity prices and exchange rate volatility, would also be
viewed negatively.

Considerations that could lead to a positive rating action (Rating
or Outlook) includes the group's demonstrated ability to maintain
EBTIDA margins in the 8% - 10% level and an increase in trading
volumes without disproportionately increasing leverage or
deteriorating the liquidity profile.


HYPERMARCAS SA: Fitch Upgrades Issuer Default Rating to 'BB+'
-------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has upgraded the following ratings of Hypermarcas
S.A.'s (Hypermarcas):

-- Long-term foreign currency Issuer Default Rating (IDR) to 'BB+'
   from 'BB';
-- Long-term local currency IDR to 'BB+' from 'BB';
-- Long-term national scale rating to 'AA(bra)' from 'A+(bra)';
-- Senior unsecured notes due in 2021 to 'BB+' from 'BB';
-- Third debentures issuance at 'AA(bra)' from 'A+(bra)'.

The Rating Outlook is Stable.

Key Rating Drivers

The upgrades reflect Hypermarcas' improving profitability and
credit metrics during 2013 and the expectation that this trend
should continue through 2014, when the company's net leverage
ratio is projected to reach 2.5x. The rating actions also take
into consideration the company's more conservative approach to
growing through acquisitions.

Hypermarcas' ratings reflect its leading position in the
competitive Brazilian market, and the strength and diversification
of its brands. The pharma business resilience and Hypermarcas' low
ticket and less discretionary consumer portfolio are key to its
adequate business fundamental. Hypermarcas' operations are
expected to continue to benefit from the long-term positive
fundamentals of the under-penetrated Brazilian healthcare market.

The company's still high gross leverage ratios, the ongoing
challenges related to the consolidation of its several past
acquisitions, as well as the arising competitive pressures from
larger and well capitalized global peers, limit Hypermarcas'
ratings below investment grade. Other credit limitations include
its need for constant drug and product innovation.

Strong Business Position; Diversified Product Portfolio

Hypermarcas has one of the largest and most diversified consumer
products portfolios in Brazil, with focus on the pharmaceutical,
beauty and personal care segments. Hypermarcas' business strategy
is to capture synergies through the integration of acquired
operations into a single cost platform in terms of packaging,
distribution, advertising and marketing. Currently, the company's
Pharma segment accounts for 56% of revenues, while its Beauty and
Personal Care segment accounts for the balance of revenues. The
significant expansion of Hypermarcas' operations and product
portfolio in recent years has primarily been achieved through 23
acquisitions since 2007. These transactions, which totaled
approximately BRL8.1 billion, were financed through a mix of debt
and equity.

Operating Cash Flow Improvement

Hypermarcas successfully improved its working capital cycle during
2012 and integrated several newly acquired assets, which resulted
in stronger EBITDA and cash flow from operations (CFFO). During
2013, the company has been focusing on simplifying its operational
platform, improving productivity, and reducing operational costs
and SG&A expenses. There were significant advances in the
consolidation of the Consumer division's manufacturing and
logistics platform with the completion of both the new plant in
Senador Canedo and the Distribution Center located at Goiania,
where labor costs are 30% cheaper and productivity has been
rising.

During the last 12 months ended on June 30, 2013, Hypermarcas'
EBITDA reached BRL935 million, an increase from BRL869 million of
EBITDA in 2012 and BRL534 million in 2011. In addition, the
company's EBITDA margin has improved to 23% from 16% in 2012.
Despite strong CFFO generation of BRL 447 million in the period,
free cash flow (FCF) dropped to BRL131 million, from BRL242
million in 2012, due to BRL102 million of dividends.

Further Decline in Leverage Expected

The continued recovery in the operating cash flow generation
(EBITDA) and FCF generation has supported the company's deleverage
trend. Net leverage is expected to reach 2.8x at the end of 2013
and 2.5x by 2014. These ratios compare with 3.1x in 2012 and 5.1x
reported in 2011. During 2011, the change in commercial strategy
and high integration challenges significantly deteriorated
Hypermarcas' operational performance, leading to high leverage and
weaker operating margins.

Fitch forecasts that Hypermarcas's FCF generation will be enhanced
from 2014 on due to operating cash flow improvements, lower
interests payments and lower capex disbursements, which should be
partially offset by a more aggressive shareholder friendly
dividend policy of 50% of net income. For 2014 and 2015, Fitch
foresees FCF of around BRL80 million and BRL150 million,
respectively.

Solid Liquidity Position

Hypermarcas had BRL4.5billion of debt as of June 30, 2012, of
which BRL1.2 billion is short term. The company's has a robust
liquidity position with BRL1.7 billion in cash and marketable
securities. As of June 30, Hypermarcas had a cash plus CFFO/short-
term debt ratio of 1.8x. Its cash balance supports debt
amortization through 2014 and part of 2015.

Additional liquidity comes from the company recently signed stand-
by credit facility of BRL750 million, which can be drawn down
until 2015 and has a final maturity during 2019. The company also
issued a BRL400 million local debentures in July as part of its
program to rollover its debt and repay its most expensive credit
lines. Fitch expects Hypermarcas to be active on its liability
management strategy in 2013 and 2014.

Rating Sensitivities

Fitch could consider a negative rating action on an unexpected
material debt-financed acquisition or deterioration in operational
performance associated with a step away from the company's track
record of maintaining strong liquidity levels. Ratings upgrades
could occur with the combination of the following factors: robust
FCF generation, on a recurring basis, allowing total leverage
reduction, conservative approach on acquisitions, and the
maintenance of strong liquidity and well managed debt schedule
profile.

INSTITUTO COSTARRICENSE: Fitch Affirms 'BB+' FC IDR
---------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed the foreign currency Issuer Default
Rating (FC IDR) of Instituto Costarricense de Electricidad y
Subsidiarias (Grupo ICE, or ICE) at 'BB+', as well as its national
scale ratings at 'AAA(cri)' and 'AAA(slv)' . The Rating Outlook is
Stable.

Key Rating Drivers

Grupo ICE's ratings are supported by the company's linkage to the
sovereign rating of Costa Rica (FC and LC IDRs rated 'BB+'; Stable
Outlook by Fitch) which stems from the government ownership. The
linkage between Grupo ICE and the government also reflects the
company's political risk resulting from its tariff approval
process and government-mandated strategy to assure the country's
electric supply, which temper the ratings to align with that of
the sovereign. The ratings also reflect the government's implicit
and explicit support, the company's diversified portfolio of
assets, and adequate financial profile. Also factored into Grupo
ICE's ratings is the company's aggressive capital expenditure
program aimed at maintaining a strong market share position in the
telecommunications industry and an adequate installed electric
generation capacity.

Diversified Asset Portfolio:
Grupo ICE's ratings are supported by the company's diversified
portfolio of assets and its strong business position in Costa
Rica's electricity and telecommunications industry. The ratings
reflect the company's low business risk resulting from its
business diversification and positive characteristics as a utility
service provider.

Grupo ICE has a legal monopoly in the electricity sector in Costa
Rica. The issuer is the largest power generator and electric
distribution utility company in the country. As of year-end 2012,
Grupo ICE had an installed electric generation capacity of 2,172
megawatts (MW) (national capacity of 2,723MW) and was the
exclusive owner of the national transmission grid. The national
electric industry includes private generation, municipal
distribution and electric cooperatives that can generate energy in
coordination with Grupo ICE or sell their energy to Grupo ICE. The
company is expected to remain a leader in the domestic
telecommunications industry, notwithstanding recent changes that
opened the industry to competition. Although this will increase
competition, it is also expected to enhance regulatory
transparency. In 2012, ICE's market share in terms of subscribers
was nearly 100% in fixed telephony, 80% in mobile and 60% in
broadband.

For the LTM ended June 30, 2013, the company generated revenues
and EBITDA of CRC1,270,331 million (CRC1,184,950 million for 2012)
and CRC352,170 million (CRC315,717 million for 2012),
respectively. The company's electricity segment represented
approximately 60% of revenues and EBITDA, with the
telecommunications division contributing the rest. Fitch expects
ICE's electricity business to increase its contribution given the
current and future expansion projects, as well as relatively
stable results in the telecommunications segment.

Financial Profile Could Be Pressured By Capex Plan:
Grupo ICE's ratings reflect the company's adequate financial
profile characterized by moderate leverage and satisfactory
interest coverage, yet with some exposure to foreign exchange
risk, which should deteriorate over the medium term as the company
pursues its capex plan. During the LTM ended June 30, 2013, ICE
generated EBITDA of USD705 million, from USD632 million in the
same period of 2012, due to higher electricity tariffs.

As of June 2013, Grupo ICE reported total debt of USD3.5 billion,
of which USD318 million was short-term and almost 80% was
denominated in USD. This translated into a financial leverage
ratio, as measured by total adjusted debt-to-EBITDAR of
approximately 5.5x. The company's interest coverage ratio as
measured by EBITDAR-to-interest and rent expenses was 2.2x (3.0x
EBITDA/interest).

Fitch expects that the projected growth in electric demand of 2%-
3% by 2014 and 2015 will allow Grupo ICE to maintain its leverage
at around 5.0x-6.0x.

Aggressive Capital Expenditures Plan:
Grupo ICE's capital investment plan over the next several years is
considered aggressive and could weaken the company's financial
profile, absent increased cash flow generation and adequate tariff
adjustments. The company plans to invest approximately USD3.2
billion over the next five years in order to supply electricity to
meet demand and maintain its leadership position in
telecommunications in Costa Rica.

Going forward, Grupo ICE's credit metrics could deteriorate
significantly. Leverage could increase consistently to over 6.0x
if the company finances its capital investment plan heavily with
debt and the revenues associated with these investments are
delayed beyond the expected ramp-up timeframe or do not receive
the tariff adjustments at opportune times. Grupo ICE expects to
finance its investments with a combination of internal cash flow,
debt, Build Operate and Transfer (BOT) transactions, project
finance vehicles, and operating leases.

High Exposure to Regulatory and Political Interference:
Grupo ICE is highly exposed to regulatory interference risk given
the lack of clear and transparent electricity tariff schedules,
and that every year it must submit an electricity tariff
adjustment for end-users to the regulator for approval. In 2011
and 2012, regulatory and political interference was affected these
tariff adjustments.

Positive for Grupo ICE's business and financial profile is the
approved mechanism to adjust tariffs to reflect fuel cost
variations on a quarterly basis, starting in 2013. This change has
had a positive effect on Grupo ICE's working capital and reduces
its exposure to hydrology risk. Before 2013, the regulator
approved tariffs that did not fully recognized the company's
moderate exposure to fuel prices borne by its thermoelectric
generation business (8%-10% of annual generation on average).

The recent Telecom regulatory framework considers changes in
tariffs and competition rules. Fitch expects that the new
regulations could increase regulatory transparency.
Telecommunications tariffs had not changed since 2006. In recent
months, fixed telephony and some internet tariffs have been
adjusted upwards.


Despite the regulatory risk, Grupo ICE has managed to maintain
relatively stable cash flow generation. In addition, the company
is exposed to political interference given that the government
appoints and removes ICE's directors and executives, sets and
approves the company's tariffs, and regulates its budget.

Ratings Sensitivities
Positive: Future developments that may, individually or
collectively, lead to positive rating action include:

-- An upgrade of Costa Rica's sovereign rating;
-- If the company is materially isolated from government
   interference.

Negative: Future developments that may, individually or
collectively, lead to a negative rating action include:

-- A downgrade of Costa Rica's sovereign rating;

-- Any weakening of legal, operational and/or strategic ties with
   the government could put downward pressure on Grupo ICE's
   ratings;

-- Regulatory intervention that would have a significant negative
   impact on the company's operating and financial profile.

Fitch has affirmed the following ratings for Grupo ICE:
-- Long-term FC IDR at 'BB+'; Stable Outlook;
-- Long-term LC IDR at 'BB+'; Stable Outlook;
-- Long-term national scale (Costa Rica) at 'AAA(cri)';
-- Long-term national scale (El Salvador) at 'AAA(slv);
-- Senior unsecured debt at 'BB+';
-- Senior unsecured domestic long-term debt (Costa Rica) at
   'AAA(cri)';
-- Senior unsecured domestic long-term debt (El Salvador) at
   'AAA(slv)';
-- Short-term debt at 'F1+(cri)'.

Fitch has also affirmed the following ratings for ICE Subsidiary,
Compania Nacional de Fuerza y Luz S.A. (CNFL):

-- Long-term national scale (Costa Rica) at 'AAA(cri)'; Stable
   Outlook;

-- Senior unsecured domestic long-term debt (Costa Rica) at
   'AAA(cri)'.

* DOMINICAN REP: Economy Critical, Consumer Pockets Are Hurting
---------------------------------------------------------------
Dominican Today reports that retailers and other sectors of
Dominican Republic's economy face critical times they affirm will
hurt consumers' pockets, by paying more for many products whose
prices have jumped in recent months.

Retailers and other sectors said the prices in some provisions
have jumped as high as 65% and have led to an around 20% fall in
sales, according to Dominican Today.

The report notes that the merchants and small and medium
enterprises grouped in Confederation said among the products whose
prices jumped recently figure:

   -- herring, from RD$63.50 per pound to RD$105, or 65 percent
      more;
   -- rice from RD$19 pound to RD$21, for an 11% increase;
   -- garlic, from RD$105 to RD$150 for an increase of 43%;
   -- cod from RD$125 to RD$140, a 12% increase, and
   -- red onion from RD$30 RD$32, or 7% more.

The report relates that Confecomercio Senior Member Gilberto Luna,
quoted by diariolibre.com, added that last year's tax package and
the dollar's climbing rate have contributed to the increase in the
price of staples.  "That was basically what has contributed to the
around 25% increase on these products as companies had to also
readjust costs and therefore an increase on those products.",
Dominicantoday.com discloses as Mr. Luna saying.

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-
