COLUMBUS INTERNATIONAL: S&P Assigns 'B' Rating to $1.25BB Notes
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its 'B' issue-level
rating to Columbus International Inc.'s proposed senior unsecured
notes for up to $1.25 billion.  At the same time, S&P affirmed its
'B' corporate credit rating on Columbus.  The outlook is stable.

S&P expects the company to use net proceeds from the notes
issuance to prepay all of its existing debt ($852 million), pay a
dividend of $100 million, finance the acquisition of Lazus S.A.S.,
and for general corporate purposes.  The rating on the notes
reflects the upstream guarantees provided by most of Columbus'
subsidiaries, which mitigate the notes' structural subordination
as they place the claims of the parent company's creditors on a
pari passu basis with its operating company creditors.

BRAZIL: Plans Oil Bidding Round as Petrobras Production Declines
----------------------------------------------------------------
Rodrigo Orihuela at Bloomberg News reports that Brazil will look
to auction oil exploration licenses by mid-2015, following three
bidding rounds last year, as the South American country seeks to
reverse a decline in crude output and stoke economic growth.

The government hasn't set a date or decided whether to offer
ultra-deep fields in the so-called pre-salt area, Oil Secretary
Marco Antonio Almeida said, according to Bloomberg News.

"It could happen this year, it could be pre-salt or not, it could
be marginal fields," Bloomberg News quoted Mr. Almeida as saying.
"We haven't made any decision yet," Mr. Almeida added, Bloomberg
News notes.

Bloomberg News notes that Brazil ended a five-year auction drought
last year with sales including the Libra field in an area
estimated to hold more than 50 billion barrels and lying dozens of
miles off Rio's coast.  The plan follows an output drop at state-
run Petroleo Brasileiro SA (PETR4) to the lowest level since 2009,
Bloomberg News relates.

Petrobras produces about 94 percent of Brazil's oil and is
required to operate new concessions in the pre-salt area.

Brazil's Energy Ministry and the National Council for Energy
Policy are responsible for setting the dates for oil auctions, the
petroleum regulator know as ANP said in an e-mailed reply to
Bloomberg News.


JBS SA: Posts BRL140.7MM Adjusted Net Income for 4th Quarter
------------------------------------------------------------
Bloomberg News reports that JBS SA reported earnings that missed
analysts' estimates.

JBS SA posted adjusted net income of BRL140.7 million (US$61.1
million) for the fourth quarter, compared with the average
forecast of BRL464.8 million, according to data compiled by
Bloomberg.  The acquisition of Marfrig Alimentos SA's former unit
Seara, completed in October, may be weighing on JBS's
profitability, Banco BTG Pactual SA said, Bloomberg News notes.

"Seara is a key risk," analysts Thiago Duarte and Enrico Grimaldi
of BTG Pactual wrote in a research note to clients, Bloomberg News
discloses.  "Looking ahead to 2014, we believe investors will
focus on JBS's ability to further deleverage its balance sheet
after absorbing Seara, where we believe most of the execution risk
lies going forward," the analysts said, Bloomberg News relays.

Chief Executive Officer Wesley Batista told reporters in New York
that he is "confident" that Seara will report strong figures this
year as JBS works to integrate the newly acquired company into its
business, Bloomberg News notes.

JBS SA's net debt was BRL23.7 billion at the end of the fourth
quarter, a 6 percent increase from three months earlier, Bloomberg
News relays.

The meatpacker also said it agreed to pay BRL103.5 million for
poultry producer Frinal SA in Brazil's southern state of Rio
Grande do Sul, Bloomberg News adds.

JBS SA is a multinational food processing company, producing
factory processed beef, chicken and pork, and also selling by-
products from the processing of these meats.  It is headquartered
in Sao Paulo. It was founded in 1953 in Anapolis, Goias. The
company has 150 industrial plants around the world.

                             *     *     *

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
Oct. 24, 2013, Fitch Ratings affirmed the foreign and local
currency Issuer Default Ratings (IDRs) of JBS S.A. (JBS) at 'BB-'
as well as its 'A-(bra)' national scale rating.  Fitch has also
affirmed at 'BB-' rating on the notes due in 2016 issued by JBS
and the 'A-(bra)' rating of its debentures due in 2015.

BANCO AGROMERCANTIL: Fitch Assigns Initial 'BB' IDR
---------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has assigned an initial 'BB' Long-term foreign
currency Issuer Default Rating (IDR) to Banco Agromercantil de
Guatemala (BAM).  The Rating Outlook is Stable.  Fitch has also
assigned a Viability Rating (VR) of 'bb'.

KEY RATING DRIVERS

BAM's IDRs and VR reflect its intrinsic strengths, including its
improving loan quality and profitability, a significant capital
strengthening during last year, and an ample, although short-term
funding.  BAM's ratings also factor in the operational assistance
provided by Bancolombia. BAM's support rating and support rating
floor of '5' and 'NF', respectively, indicates that, although
possible, sovereign support cannot be relied upon given its
limited systematic importance.

BAM's loan portfolio quality indicators have consistently improved
in recent years due to the strengthening of monitoring and
collection processes. Stricter restructuring and write-off
policies have also been implemented.  Reserves for impaired loans
notable increased, achieving a coverage of 100% of 30-day-past due
loans.  Fitch expects asset quality to remain stable, despite the
rapid loan growth pace.

A capital injection during 2013 notably increased the bank's
capital ratios.  BAM's capital position is now robust considering
the risk embedded in its balance sheet.  However, given the faster
credit growth over the coming years and continuous dividend
payments, Fitch expects capital will gradually decline but will
continue to compare favorably with its local and international
rating peers.

BAM's ability to obtain funding is good, given the high
participation of deposits from individuals; the low concentration
of its deposit base, and ample access to institutional funding.
Nevertheless, funding is mostly short-term, which results in
relevant maturity mismatches.  Fitch believes the bank will
sustain its good liquidity profile given the adequate amount of
liquid assets and historical stability of its deposits.

BAM's operating profitability increased consistently in recent
years due to its continuous credit growth, sound and stable net
interest margin in relation to its target segments and constant
improvements in operating efficiency.  Given this improving trend
will continue in the coming years, Fitch expects the bank's
profitability will converge to the Guatemalan banking system
average.

Bancolombia's potential support to BAM cannot be relied upon until
BAM becomes its subsidiary, which could happen within five years.
Meanwhile, any action of Bancolombia's support needs the approval
of BAM's current majority shareholder.  However, Fitch recognizes
that Bancolombia's minority stake has benefited BAM's risk profile
and may boost its business opportunities.

RATING SENSITIVITIES

An increase in Bancolombia's shareholding, which positions it as
the majority shareholder would result in an upgrade of BAM's IDRs.
An improvement of BAM's financial performance that would sustain
its profitability above Guatemalan banking system average,
together with the maintenance of high capitalization measured by a
Fitch Core Capital ratio above 11.5%, could also result in an
upgrade of BAM's VR.

A breach of the shareholders agreement with Bancolombia
accompanied by a weakening of BAM's liquidity profile or a
significant reduction of its capitalization could result in a
rating downgrade.

A significant deterioration of the loan portfolio quality (which
is not mitigated by financial support from its shareholders,
either through capital or liquidity injections) that would erode
the bank's capital below 13% of regulatory capital ratio could
result in a rating downgrade.

KEY ASSUMPTIONS AND SENSITIVITIES

The ratings and Outlook are sensitive to the following
assumptions:

   -- BAM's operating environment will remain stable.
   -- The bank will maintain its commercial strategy and credit
      policies.
   -- Bancolombia will be an increasingly influential voice in the
      bank's strategy and operations.

PROFILE

BAM is a Guatemalan universal bank mainly focused on the corporate
segment (close to 75% of its loan portfolio) with a market share
of 8.09% and 8.03% as of December 2013 in terms of assets and
deposits, respectively.  BAM was established in 1926 but operates
under its current name since 2000, as a result of the merger of
Banco del Agro and Banco Agricola Mercantil de Guatemala.
Fitch has assigned the following ratings:

   -- Long-term IDR 'BB'; Outlook Stable;
   -- Short-term IDR 'B';
   -- Local-currency long-term IDR 'BB'; Outlook Stable;
   -- Local-currency short-term IDR 'B';
   -- Viability Rating 'bb';
   -- Support '5';
   -- Support Rating Floor 'NF'.


BANCO AGROMERCANTIL: S&P Assigns 'BB' ICR; Outlook Stable
---------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its long-term 'BB' and
short-term 'B' issuer credit ratings (ICRs) on Banco Agromercantil
de Guatemala S.A. (BAM).  The outlook is stable.

At the same time, S&P assigned its issue-level rating to
Intertrust SPV Limited's $300 million senior notes. Intertrust SPV
Limited acts as trustee of the Agromercantil Senior Trust.  BAM
fully guarantees the notes; therefore, the rating on the notes is
the same as long-term ICR on the bank.

The ratings reflect BAM's "adequate" business position, "adequate"
capital and earnings, "moderate" risk position, "average" funding
and "adequate" liquidity (as S&P's criteria define these terms).
The bank's stand-alone credit profile is 'bb'.


BANCO G&T: S&P Affirms 'BB/B' Credit Ratings; Outlook Stable
------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services affirmed its 'BB/B'
counterparty credit ratings on Banco G&T Continental S.A.  The
stand-alone credit profile (SACP) remains at 'bb+'.  The outlook
is stable.

The ratings reflect BG&T's "strong" business position, "moderate"
capital and earnings, and "moderate" risk position.  The bank
relies on a stable and growing customer deposit base resulting in
"average" funding and "adequate" liquidity levels.

S&P's bank criteria uses its Banking Industry Country Risk
Assessment (BICRA) economic risk and industry risk scores to
determine a bank's anchor, the starting point in assigning an
issuer credit rating (ICR).  The anchor for a bank operating only
in Guatemala is 'bb+'.

In S&P's view, economic risk in Guatemala has not changed since
its last revision.  S&P's economic risk score reflects the
country's limited fiscal flexibility, primarily stemming from a
low tax base.  Although sovereign debt levels will remain low
relative to GDP, total debt will likely increase over the next
several years unless the government successfully implements tax
reforms and boosts GDP growth prospects.  Poor economic
performance has prevented any significant income improvements and
continues to limit private-sector debt capacity, which, combined
with significant foreign currency lending, results in very high
credit risks in the economy.

Industry risks in Guatemala have also remained unchanged.  Recent
amendments continue to strengthen the regulatory framework, and
other projects, such as extending supervision over microfinance
institutions, are in the pipeline.  "Competitive dynamics" risks
remain moderate thanks to the banking sector's sound
profitability, a focus on traditional banking products, and
absence of significant market distortions.  Guatemala's banking
system has a historically stable core customer deposit base and
access to external credit lines, but the underdeveloped domestic
capital debt markets constrain funding diversification.

Banco G&TC's business position is strong as the third largest
financial institution within the Guatemalan banking system as of
Dec. 31, 2013, and its adequate management and business stability.

The stable outlook mirrors that on the sovereign.  S&P also
expects Banco G&TC to keep its leading position in the Guatemalan
banking system and that its capital and earnings will remain
moderate within the next 12 to 18 months due to its expectations
for loan portfolio growth and internal capital generation.

A downgrade is unlikely given that S&P would have to lower the
bank's SACP by three or more notches in order to trigger a
downgrade on the bank.  The ICR doesn't reflect any notch of
support from a "moderately high" likelihood of extraordinary
government support to Banco G&TC.

"As the sovereign ratings constrain our ratings on Banco G&TC, our
ratings on it will likely move in tandem with those on the
sovereign.  As a result, if the SACP does not change, we could
upgrade the bank if we upgrade the sovereign," said Standard &
Poor's credit analyst Jesus Sotomayor.

CALDON FINANCE: Liquidators Set Meeting for April 14
----------------------------------------------------
RJR News reports that creditors and shareholders of the failed
Caldon Finance Group have been called to a meeting by the
liquidator.

The meeting, scheduled for April 14 at KPMG's Duke Street offices,
is to update the parties on the progress of the liquidation,
according to RJR News.

Raphael Gordon, the liquidator, will also present statements of
accounts since the liquidation process started.


                        *     *     *

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
March 30, 2007, Caldon Finance collapsed after Dr. Omar Davies,
Jamaica's Minister of Finance and Planning, suspended the
operations of its main unit -- Caldon Finance Merchant Bank -- and
installed a temporary manager.  Efforts to liquidate Caldon
Finance are still being made.  Reports said that the completion of
the process could take a while due to a number of outstanding
court cases involving the firm's assets.  Raphael Gordon, the
company's liquidator, said that until the issues are dealt with,
the liquidation would remain a work in progress especially as it
relates to secured creditors.

Agricole SA and Banco Santander SA are managing the sale,

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
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.
