* BAHAMAS: IMF Issue Statement at the Conclusion of Staff Visit
---------------------------------------------------------------
An International Monetary Fund (IMF) team, headed by Mbuyamu
Matungulu, visited the Bahamas during July 14-18 as part of the
regular consultation process with member countries on their
economies. The team met with senior government officials and
representatives of the private sector.  At the end of the
discussions, Mr. Matungulu made the following statement:

"Economic activity continues to recover, but momentum remains
weak, with growth estimated at 0.7 percent in 2013, and expected
to be limited to 1.2 percent this year.  The fiscal consolidation
process has begun, although its pace could be frustrated by delays
in the introduction of the value-added tax (VAT).  Preliminary
data suggest that the fiscal deficit declined to 4.5 percent of
GDP from 5.4 percent in the previous fiscal year.  The deficit is
projected to narrow further to just under 4 percent of GDP in the
2014/2015 fiscal year, if the VAT is introduced in the coming
months.

"The economy's external position is also expected to improve, with
the current account deficit declining to 16.6 percent of GDP in
2014, compared to 19.4 percent in 2013, amid a modest
strengthening of the external reserves position. The financial
sector remains well capitalized and highly liquid, although it
continues to deal with a sizable and aging stock of non-performing
loans (NPLs).

"The staff team engaged in preliminary policy discussions with the
Bahamian authorities in preparation for the annual Article IV
Consultation discussions, tentatively scheduled for early
November.  It supported the authorities' fiscal consolidation
efforts in order to place the government debt on a declining path.
This is essential to boosting investor confidence, further
improving the growth outlook, and strengthening employment
prospects.  The mission emphasized the key role to be played by
the VAT in that context.  In this regard, the team encouraged the
authorities to finalize the agreed VAT legislation to ensure the
successful introduction of this key reform.

"The staff team welcomed the anticipated improvement to the
external balance from the soon-to-be opened Baha Mar project,
which would boost tourism earnings and contain official external
borrowing to shore up reserves.  The team counseled efforts to
strengthen and diversify growth, in light of continuing high
unemployment levels.

In this context, the team urged accelerated implementation of
planned reform of the energy sector.  Finally, the mission
welcomed the continued strength of the financial system, in the
face of both high level of NPLs and a rapidly changing supervisory
framework.  In this respect, it urged continued close monitoring
of credit risks, and supported government efforts at implementing
appropriate domestic and international supervisory policies,
including as recommended by the IMF's recent Financial Sector
Assessment Program (FSAP)."

BESI BRASIL: S&P Cuts Rating to 'B-/C'; On CreditWatch Negative
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services downgraded BESI Brasil to
'B-/C' from 'B+/B' on global scale and to 'brB-/brC' from 'brBBB-
/brA-3' on national scale.  The long-term ratings remain on
CreditWatch negative, where S&P placed them on July 15, 2014.  In
addition, S&P removed the global and national scale short-term
ratings from CreditWatch negative.

The rating actions on BESI Brasil follow S&P's July 16, 2014,
similar actions on its ultimate parent, Banco Espirito Santo S.A.
(BES) and its core subsidiary, Banco Espirito Santo de
Investimento S.A. (BESI), which owns directly 80% of BESI Brasil.
The downgrade and CreditWatch maintenance of BES reflect that its
capital position has weakened as a result of the higher losses
that, according to S&P's expectations, it is likely to face, given
its direct exposure to Espirito Santo Financial Group (ESFG), to
its subsidiaries, and to Rio Forte.  The downgrade also reflects
S&P's view of higher risks to BES' financial position, resulting
mainly from its exposure to, and links with, GES.

"We view BESI Brasil as a "strategically important" subsidiary of
BES.  We also revised BESI Brasil's SACP to 'b' from 'bb-'.  In
our view, the challenges we see for BES franchise and the
reportedly weak financial position of several entities within GES
also have a negative effect on the BESI Brasil's business
stability, franchise, and financial position.  We have, therefore,
revised our assessment on BESI Brasil's business position to
"weak" from "moderate," risk position to "weak" from "moderate,"
and liquidity to "moderate" from "adequate."  BESI Brasil's SACP
continues to incorporate the 'bbb-' anchor that we apply to
financial institutions operating primarily in Brazil and our view
of BESI Brasil's "adequate" capital and earnings position and
"below average" funding," S&P said.

The risk position assessment reflects the uncertainty over the
impact on BESI Brasil's capital position as a result of potential
capital upstreaming to its parent, although Brazil's central bank
would need to approve it.  In this sense, S&P believes that a
deterioration of the bank's capitalization could result in a
weaker assessment of S&P's capital view.

The change in the liquidity assessment reflects that even though
the bank's broad liquid assets to short-term wholesale funding is
1.75x, S&P believes that franchise challenges could result in
customer deposit outflows.  However, in S&P's base-case scenario,
the bank would still be able to meet its financial obligations.
S&P will continue to monitor the bank's liquidity closely, and any
deterioration could cause further downgrades.

The rating on BESI Brasil is one notch below its SACP, reflecting
the possibility of extraordinary negative intervention from the
parent given the challenges S&P sees for BES' franchise as well as
the heightened risks to BES's financial position resulting mainly
from its exposure to, and links with, GES.

The negative CreditWatch on BESI Brasil reflects the CreditWatch
listing on its parent.  S&P will continue to evaluate the
implications of the parent's weakened credit quality on BESI
Brasil's liquidity, capitalization, and business position.  S&P
expects to resolve the CreditWatch listing once it has resolved
the CreditWatch on BESI Brasil's parent or if BESI Brasil's
franchise or financial position weakens beyond S&P's current
expectations.

COMPANIA SUD: S&P Affirms 'B-' Corp. Credit Rating; Outlook Pos.
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services affirmed its 'B-' corporate
credit rating on Compania Sud Americana de Vapores (CSAV).
Outlook remains positive.

The affirmation reflects S&P's expectation that once the merger
with Hapag-Lloyd (HL; B+/Stable/--) is completed, CSAV's cash
flows will become more predictable and its debt lower.  Also, even
though the company will keep a 30% share in the combined container
shipping business, S&P expects the credit quality of that unit to
be stronger than current one of CSAV, as it will have a larger
capital base, a more efficient operation due to network economies
and synergies, and a better pricing power.

According to the merger's terms, CSAV will transfer all of its
container operation (including assets, debt, and other
obligations) to HL.  In addition, CSAV will have a 30% ownership
of the merged company, while HL's current shareholders will
maintain the remaining ownership.  The shareholders of both
companies had already approved the merger, and S&P expects it to
be completed by the end of 2014.

CSAV's remaining operations will consist of its car carrier,
refrigerated cargo, and bulk businesses, which currently generate
$30-$40 million in annual EBITDA and whose debt consists of a $50
million bond due 2022.

UC RUSAL: Exploring Ethane for Alpart Plant
-------------------------------------------
Daraine Luton at Jamaica Gleaner reports that UC RUSAL is
considering the use of ethane -- a gas more widely used in the
petrochemical industry for the manufacture of the plastic
polyethylene -- to fire its 1.7- million ton alumina refinery in
Jamaica's southwestern parish of St Elizabeth.

The plant has been closed for five years, largely because of low
market price for its product and high production costs, which is
primarily because of the expensive oil it burns for energy,
according to Jamaica Gleaner.

But, the report notes that Jamaica's Mining and Energy Minister
Phillip Paulwell announced that he had given UC Rusal six months
to reopen Alpart and another facility, the 601,000-tons Kirkvine
works in the center of the island, or risk 200 million tons of
bauxite ore concessions that go with the refineries.

Igor Dorofeev, who runs UC Rusal's operations in Jamaica, told The
Gleaner that UC Rusal was close to finalizing an energy strategy
for Alpart, in collaboration with a US outfit called American
Ethane, which would see the construction of a 150- megawatt power
plant, one-third of whose output would be utilized by the
refinery, leaving 100 megawatts of power to be sold the national
grid, the report relates.

"We have let the contract on the initial studies, both on the
receiving terminals and the power plants," the report quoted Walt
Teter, senior vice-president, American Ethane, which is based in
Houston, Texas, as saying.

"Our engineers are down here working on these things," Mr. Teter
said, the report notes.

The project would involve building an ethane-receiving and
regasification facilities at Port Kaiser, on Jamaica's north
shore, then deliver the gas either via pipeline or rail tanks to
the power plant, the report discloses.

Nor would Mr. Dorofeev say what would be the cost of the project,
but insisted it would be substantially cheaper than the
construction of infrastructure for natural gas -- the solution
that Rusal proposes for its 670,000-tons refinery at Ewarton, in
the southern parish of St Catherine, the report relates.

A 30-megawatt power plant is planned for that facility.  It is
expected to be started early in 2015 and completed by the end of
2017.  The cost of that project would be US$200 million, Mr.
Dorofeev said, the report relates.

Mr. Dorofeev said that he expects to, within weeks, present to Mr.
Paulwell "a complete list of documents plus drafts papers, plus
our proposals" for the project.

Mr. Paulwell, who has in the past expressed frustration at being
strung out by Rusal over its long-term plans for its Jamaica
facilities, responded cautiously to Mr. Dorofeev's remarks,
including the Russian's declaration that Rusal was in Jamaica "for
the long haul, the report notes.

UC Rusal controls 65 per cent of Jamaica's alumina production
capacity and operates three of the island's four alumina
refineries.

                             *     *     *

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Europe on July 14,
2014, Itar-Tass said that UC RUSAL said in a statement the
London High Court is convening a meeting of creditors of Russia's
aluminum giant to vote on a scheme of arrangement of restructuring
the company's US$5.15 billion debt.

RUSAL has earlier applied to the London and Jersey courts for debt
restructuring after failing to win unanimous support from its
creditors.  By now, RUSAL's request for debt restructuring has
received support from 94% of the company's creditors and the
aluminum giant is currently negotiating the deal with the
remaining 6%.  RUSAL still needs to agree on a US$3.6 billion
restructuring deal with banks.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
March 31, 2014, RJR News said that UC Rusal reported a massive
increase in net losses in the year to December 31.  This was due
mainly to a large impairment cost and one-off restructuring
charges combined with lower production and a fall in aluminum
prices, according to RJR News.

The report noted that the company reported a net loss of US$3.2
billion.  It suffered a US$528 million loss in 2012.

CONSUBANCO S.A.: S&P Assigns 'BB' Rating to MXN1.4BB Certs.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it assigned its 'BB'
global scale and 'mxA' national scale ratings to Consubanco S.A.
Institucion de Banca Multiple's (Consubanco; global scale
BB/Stable/--; national scale mxA/Stable/mxA-2) proposed bank
certificates of up to MXN1.4 billion at a floating rate CSBANCO14
due 2018.  This is the second issuance under a MXN2 billion
program, or its equivalent in inflation-protected units (Unidades
de InversiĀ¢n, UDIs), due May 2018.

International investors may acquire 90% of the bank certificates
through global depository notes (GDNs).  The ratings on the bank
certificates are the same as the counterparty credit ratings on
the bank and indicate that the certificates will rank equally in
right of payment with all of the bank's existing and future senior
unsecured debt.  Approximately 50% of the proceeds will be used to
refinance existing debt, and the remainder will be used for
working capital needs and new originations.

"We continue to view Consubanco's funding as "below average,"
according to our criteria, since it relies on wholesale sources,
and its funding mix is more concentrated compared to the industry
average.  As of June 30, 2014, time deposits (notes with interest
payable at maturity) represented 71% of the total funding,
issuances (bank certificates in the local market and certificates
of deposit) 26%, and interbank loans the remaining 3%.  The bank
has improved its stable funding ratio to 100% as of second quarter
2014 from 81% in September 2013, because its short-term bank
funding has decreased.  In our opinion, the MXN1.4 billion bank
certificates issuance will help improve the match in the balance
sheet and the bank's stable funding ratio, because it will mature
in 3.5 years. We expect Consubanco to continue relying on
wholesale funding sources to support future loan growth, as the
proportion of deposits will be small in the medium term," S&P
said.

Liquidity is "moderate," reflecting the bank's low liquid assets
to short-term wholesale funding ratio of 0.8x on average for the
last four quarters, according to S&P's estimates.  In S&P's view,
this low ratio is offset by the bank's bimonthly repayment of its
loan portfolio, S&P's expectation that it will use the proceeds to
extend the maturity profile of its liabilities, and gradually
increase deposits participation in its funding mix.

The ratings on Consubanco reflect its "weak" business position,
"very strong" capital and earnings, "moderate" risk position,
"below average" funding, and "moderate" liquidity.

CONSUBANCO S.A.: Fitch Assigns 'BB-(EXP)' Rating to Bond Issuance
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch has assigned Consubanco S.A., Institucion de Banca
Multiple's (Consubanco) upcoming senior unsecured notes an
expected Long-term rating of 'BB-(EXP)' and a New National Long-
Term rating of 'A-(mex)'.

The intended issue of MXN1,400 million 3.5 years senior unsecured
notes will trade on the Mexican Stock Exchange under the ticker
'CSBANCO 14', with monthly variable interest payments; principal
will be payable at maturity, with an early redemption option.
Consubanco plans to use the proceeds of the issuance to pay
outstanding debt and general corporate purposes.

This is the second bond that Consubanco issues under an existing
Long-Term Debt program for up to MXN2,000 million and 5-year term.

Key Rating Drivers

These ratings are in line with Consubanco's Long-term Issuer
Default Rating (IDR), which is driven by its Viability Rating
(VR), and National Scale Rating, reflecting its senior unsecured
nature.

Consubanco's IDRs, VR, and national scale ratings are driven by
its strong capitalization, sound and recurring profitability
driven by ample margins, well-contained provisions and strong
efficiency levels, and reasonably sound asset quality and loan
loss reserve coverage, which Fitch expects will remain roughly
unchanged. However, the ratings also factor in the limited
flexibility of its funding structure, though this is gradually
improving, the challenging operating and competitive environment
in this sector, and the relatively high, though declining,
portfolio concentrations by region and employer.

Rating Sensitivities

The notes expected rating is sensitive to changes in Consubanco's
IDR, which in turn is driven by its viability rating.


EMPRESAS ICA: Buys Facchina Construction, Increases Presence in US
------------------------------------------------------------------
Empresas ICA, S.A.B. de C.V. disclosed the completion of the
acquisition of the Facchina Construction Group in the United
States.  The acquisition will enable ICA to increase participation
in the U.S. market as part of its international growth strategy.

FCG has a strong presence in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan
area and southern Florida, and was founded by Paul Facchina, Sr.
in 1987.  Landmark projects in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan
area include the 11th Street Bridge reconstruction project, the
Maryland Intercounty Connector highway project, and the U.S.
Capitol Visitor Center.  In Florida, landmark projects include the
New World Symphony Campus Expansion, the American Airlines Arena,
and residential high-rise developments such as the Grove at Grand
Bay.

ICA launched an international diversification initiative in 2011,
with the objective of increasing the international share of total
construction revenues.  ICA has already expanded its activities in
key markets of Latin America, including Panama, Peru, Colombia,
and Costa Rica.  The acquisition of FCG now extends this
initiative to the U.S. In the past, ICA participated in key U.S.
infrastructure projects, but has not been active in recent years.

ICA has made an initial payment of $60 million for 100 percent of
the ownership interests in FCG.  Additional payments of up to $40
million could be paid based upon the company meeting agreed EBITDA
targets over the next five years through 2019, among other
conditions.  As part of ICA, FCG is expected to be able to bid on
and participate in larger projects than in the past, and be able
to incorporate technologies that will improve efficiency.  It will
also have access to additional surety and financing capabilities.

In 2013 FCG had revenues of approximately $230 million, EBITDA of
approximately $8 million, and net income of approximately $7
million.  As of Dec. 31, 2013, FCG had net cash of approximately
$30 million.  Construction backlog totaled approximately $291
million at year-end. We are currently in the period of post-
closing review.

The transaction has received all necessary U.S. regulatory
approvals.

Empresas ICA, S.A.B. de C.V. is an infrastructure company in
Mexico.  ICA carries out large-scale civil and industrial
construction projects and operates a portfolio of long-term
assets, including airports, toll roads, water systems, and real
estate.  Founded in 1947, ICA is listed on the Mexican and New
York Stock exchanges.

                          *     *     *

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
May 23, 2014, 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
assigned its 'B' issue-level rating on the company's proposed $500
million senior unsecured notes. The recovery rating of '5' on the
notes, indicating expectation of modest (10% to 30%) recovery in
the event of a payment default, remains unchanged. The outlook is
negative.

PUERTO RICO: Ex-Boxing Champ Sues to Recover Losses from Bonds
--------------------------------------------------------------
Aaron Kuriloff and Mike Cherney, writing for The Wall Street
Journal, reported that Felix Trinidad, a Hall of Fame boxer, has
filed a complaint seeking to recover losses he says exceed $63
million from investing in Puerto Rican municipal-bond funds.

According to the Journal, in an April complaint filed with Wall
Street's self-regulator, the Financial Industry Regulatory
Authority, Mr. Trinidad accuses his former close friend and ex-
financial adviser, Jose "Pepe" Ramos, as well as investment firms
that employed him -- including units of UBS AG, Wells Fargo & Co.
and Popular Inc. -- of squandering much of Mr. Trinidad's $86
million in career winnings betting on Puerto Rico closed-end
municipal-bond funds without warning of the risks.

* TRINIDAD & TOBAGO: Central Bank Pumps More US$ Into System
------------------------------------------------------------
Trinidad Express reports that Trinidad and Tobago Central Bank
will sell US$75 million to the banking system as part of what it
calls its foreign exchange intervention program.

"The timing of this sale is based on the bank's ongoing analysis
of market conditions and consultation earlier with foreign
exchange traders.  This intervention comes 15 days after the bank
sold US$100 million to the system on July 2.  The total sale of
foreign exchange by Central Bank for July 2014, thus far, is
US$175 million," the bank said in a statement obtained by Trinidad
Express.

In the first half of July, inflows of US currency have been low,
as expected, given the rate of foreign exchange conversions by
energy companies, the bank added, according to Trinidad Express.

"We anticipate this trend to continue in the latter part of July
and into August.  The Central Bank is, therefore, expected to
continue to provide support to the foreign exchange market,
injecting more US currency into the system within the next few
weeks," the reported quoted the bank as saying.

The report discloses that the bank said the total US currency sold
by Central Bank to authorized dealers for the year is US$865
million, US$210 million higher than the amount sold for the
corresponding period in 2013.

At the end of June 2014, Trinidad and Tobago's net official
reserves stood at US$10,304 million, representing an excess of 12
months of import cover, notes the report.

Central Bank sources refuted statements by the Trinidad and Tobago
Manufacturers' Association (TTMA) their members are not receiving
foreign exchange, the report relates.

Source said based on the data compiled, 100 TTMA members got a
total of US$82.6 million, which was 45 per cent of the bank's
total sales in the last six weeks, the report relays.

Ten TTMA members received US$41.3 million, half of the amount sold
to TTMA's members, says the report.

A source said the TTMA's complaint was disappointing given the
open and frequent communication it has engaged in with business
groups, the report adds.

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.

Submissions about insolvency-related conferences are encouraged.
