MARFRIG ALIMENTOS: To Hold General Meeting on Jan. 22
-----------------------------------------------------

General Meeting on Jan. 22, 2014 at 11:15 a.m. in the registered
office of the Company located at Avenida Chedif Jafet 222, Tower
A, 5th floor, Suite 01, district of Vila Olímpia, in the City of
Sao Paulo.

                     About Marfrig Alimentos

products to more than 100 destinations worldwide.

                          *     *     *

May 13, 2013, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its

Alimentos S.A.  The outlook is negative.


OGX PETROLEO: Has 15 Days to Pay Oil Field Investments
------------------------------------------------------
Jeff Fick, writing for The Wall Street Journal, reported that
troubled Brazilian oil company Oleo e Gas Participacoes SA,
founded by entrepreneur Eike Batista, said that it was seeking
cash to pay for the firm's share of work at an offshore oil field
before regulators revoke the concession.

According to the report, Oleo e Gas Participacoes SA -- formerly
known as OGX Petroleo e Gas Participacoes SA -- said that it had
maintained "friendly talks" with partners and creditors to
restructure the company's finances and continue operations. In
December, Oleo e Gas reached a preliminary deal with creditors to
exchange some $5.8 billion in debt for shares that could also
include an injection of fresh capital for investments at several
oil fields.

Investments in the BS-4 block, which sits in Brazil's offshore
Santos Basin that is home to several multibillion-barrel oil
discoveries, was part of the restructuring plan, the company said,
the report related.

The foundering oil company has 15 days to pay the 73 million
Brazilian reais ($31 million) the firm owes two partners for work
done at the BS-4 offshore exploration block, which includes the
Atlanta and Oliva oil fields, according to QGEP Participacoes, the
report said. Oleo e Gas holds a 40% stake in the block.  QGEP
operates the block with a 30% share, while closely held Barra
Energia retains the remaining 30%.

Oleo e Gas said that it is "aware of its obligations to its
partners and is seeking alternative sources of capital, as is
already publicly known, in order to meet its obligations," the
report further related. The company also cited three blocks it
holds stakes in with France's Perenco and China's Sinochem
International Corp., although no complaints about late payments
have been made related to those blocks, which remain in an early,
exploratory phase.

                       About OGX Petroleo

Based in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, OGX Petroleo e Gas Participaaoes
S.A. is an independent exploration and production company with
operations in Latin America.

OGX filed for bankruptcy in a business tribunal in Rio de Janeiro
on Oct. 30, 2013, case number 0377620-56.2013.8.19.0001.  The
bankruptcy filing puts $3.6 billion of dollar bonds into default
in the largest corporate debt debacle on record in Latin America.
The filing by the oil company that transformed Eike Batista into
Brazil's richest man followed a 16-month decline that wiped out
more than $30 billion of his personal fortune.

The filing, which in Brazil is called a judicial recovery, follows
months of negotiations to restructure the dollar bonds, in which
OGX sought to convert debt to equity and secure as much as $500
million in new funds. OGX said Oct. 29 that the talks concluded
without an agreement. The company's cash fell to about $82 million
at the end of September, not enough to sustain operations further
than December.


* BRAZIL: Parana to Get US$67.2MM IDB Loan for Security Program
---------------------------------------------------------------
Brazil's state of Parana will carry out an ambitious program of
police reform and early social prevention of violence for at risk
youth with the support of a US$67.2 million loan from the Inter-
American Development Bank (IDB).

The police reforms seek to increase the effectiveness and capacity
of law enforcement entities to prevent and deter crime.  The
initiatives directed at youths are designed to foster social and
educational activities aimed at promoting the social reintegration
of juvenile offenders.

In the past decade, Parana has achieved strong economic
performance coupled with declining rates of poverty. But these
successes have been overshadowed by an increase in crime and
violence, including an 86 percent rise in the state's homicide
rate.

Homicides occur mainly in urban centers -- including the city of
Curitiba -- and in cities in border areas, affecting mostly young
people. As a result, public confidence in state institutions
responsible for security -- especially the police -- has been
undermined.

The project seeks to strengthen integration and coordination among
the Military Police and Civilian Police forces, including the
integration of planning and information systems and a focus on
areas with the highest crime rate.

In addition, the state will seek to create opportunities for
providing young people with ways to make more productive use of
their time.  The program will fund sports activities, civic
education, and training in conflict resolution. Young people also
will be provided with options to complete their schooling,
enabling them to better access the labor market.

The "Parana Seguro" program is the first public security operation
in Brazil in which the government has requested international
funding.  The move recognizes both the value added by the Bank and
the high priority assigned to the public security sector in the
three levels of the Brazilian government.

The IDB loan has a repayment period of 25 years, a grace period of
5.5 years and an interest rate based on LIBOR.  Local counterpart
funding totals US$44.8 million.

NATIONAL COMMERCIAL BANK: To Exit Remittance Business
-----------------------------------------------------
go-jamaica.com reports that National Commercial Bank (NCB) Jamaica
has decided to exit the remittance business to mitigate against
the risk of money laundering, financing of terrorism and lottery
scam activities.

As a result, the Bank said that by mutual agreement, effective
January 22 it will be cancelling its existing agent relationship
with MoneyGram Services for NCB Remittance Services (UK) Limited,
and March 31 for NCB Remittances Services (Jamaica) Limited,
according to go-jamaica.com.

The report relates that NCB said the decision was made because its
continued provision of remittance services has negatively impacted
the global risks facing the group.

"This decision was taken after further review of our business
models across the NCB group as we aim to ensure that we employ a
solid corporate governance structure and operate within a robust
compliance framework," the company said in a press release, the
report notes.

The report discloses that the statement added the move will also
affect the operations of NCB Remittance Services (UK) Limited as
effective January 22 the company will cease all other forms of
remittances, except for the remittance of pension payments.

"We thank our customers for their business and anticipate that
they will appreciate and support the action taken," NCB said, the
report relays.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
Oct. 1, 2013, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services raised its issuer
credit ratings on National Commercial Bank Jamaica Ltd. (NCBJ) to
'B-/B' from 'CCC+/C'.  The upgrade follows Jamaica's entrance into
an IMF (International Monetary Fund) program, which along with
additional external funding from other multilateral lenders,
improved the country's external liquidity and bolstered investor
confidence.  S&P removed the ratings on the bank from the
CreditWatch negative and assigned a stable outlook.  NCBJ's 'b'
stand-alone credit profile (SACP) remains unchanged.

EMPRESAS ICA: S&P Affirms 'B+' Global Scale CCR; Outlook Neg.
-------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services affirmed its 'B+' global scale
and 'mxBBB' national scale corporate credit ratings on Empresas
ICA S.A.B. de C.V. (ICA).  At the same time, S&P affirmed the 'B'
issue-level rating on the company's senior unsecured notes due
2017 and 2021.  The recovery rating of '5' on the notes,
indicating expectation of moderate (10% to 30%) recovery in the
event of a payment default, remains unchanged.  The outlook is
negative.

The 'B+' rating on ICA reflects S&P's assessment of the company's
"fair" business risk profile, "highly leveraged" financial risk
profile, "less-than-adequate" liquidity, and "satisfactory"
management and governance.

S&P's assessment of ICA's business risk profile as "fair" reflects
its status as the largest engineering, procurement, and
construction firm in Mexico, with a long and positive track record
throughout its various business divisions.  This assessment also
incorporates the company's diversified portfolio mix with
investments in large projects with complex designs and heavy
construction, as well as participation in road and water
concessions, and airports.  The inherent cyclicality of the
construction industry, the geographic concentration of its
markets, and its substantial dependence on Mexican government
spending partly offset these factors.

S&P's assessment of ICA's financial risk profile as "highly
leveraged" reflects its expectation that the company will continue
improving its key financial metrics due to a 7.5% revenue growth
in 2014 and an EBITDA of more than $640 million.  Concession
start-ups, including a toll road and a water-related project, will
likely drive this growth.  Nevertheless, S&P believes that high
cash requirements to support working capital needs and accelerate
top-line growth could limit debt reduction in the year ahead.

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.
