ALTO PALERMO: Fitch Lowers Foreign Currency IDR to 'CCC'
-------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has downgraded the foreign currency IDR of all rated
Argentine corporates following the sovereign ratings downgrade.
Fitch has also affirmed the associated local currency issuer
default ratings.

Fitch downgraded the Argentine sovereign's foreign and local
currency IDRs to restricted default (RD) from 'B-'and the country
ceiling to CCC from B-.  The sovereign downgrade reflects the
expiration of the 30-day grace period to cure the missed coupon
payments on its discount bonds issued under foreign law.

The Argentine corporates rating downgrade also reflects the
weakening macroeconomic environment in which they operate.  The
default by the Argentine government is likely to lead to higher
inflation and will further pressure an economy that is already
contracting.  The downgrades reflect the additional operating cash
flow pressure corporates will face, as well as the difficulty they
will face in obtaining financing in the local market.  The
negative rating action also reflects the increased likelihood that
foreign exchange will become even more difficult to obtain.

Fitch has taken the following rating actions;

Alto Palermo S.A. (APSA)

   -- Foreign currency IDR downgraded to 'CCC' from 'B-';

ARGENTINA: Default is Ruled a Credit Event for Swaps
----------------------------------------------------
Peter Eavis, writing for The New York Times' DealBook, reports
that the repercussions of Argentina's sovereign debt default
continued to spread through global markets, as an industry body
decided that financial instruments used to insure against the
default must pay out.

The International Swaps and Derivatives Association said
Argentina's failure to make a payment on its bonds earlier last
week would activate credit default swaps on the country's debt,
according to DealBook.  In the coming days, investors who used the
swaps to insure against the default will collect money from
investors on the other side of the trade, the report notes.

The report discloses that holders of Argentina's foreign
government bonds did not receive a payment that was supposed to
occur, prompting Standard & Poor's to announce that the country
was in default.  Argentina had deposited money to make the payment
with Bank of New York Mellon.  But the bank did not want to
distribute the money to the bondholders because doing so would
have contravened an order from a federal judge in Manhattan,
reports DealBook.  Hedge funds suing Argentina brought the case
that led to the court order, the report relays.

DealBook discloses that Argentina has fought the hedge funds in
American courts but its efforts foundered in June when the Supreme
Court declined to take up an appeal from the country.

Credit default swaps have become very popular way for investors
and banks to place wagers on the creditworthiness of companies and
countries, DealBook says.  They can be dangerous, the report
discloses.

DealBook relays that the swaps enabled a huge build up of risk in
the banking system before the 2008 financial crisis.  But changes
to the market appear to have put it on a firmer footing.  The
market for the swaps, for instance, handled Greece's sovereign
default in 2012 without hitch, the report notes.

There are about $21 billion of the swaps written on Argentina's
sovereign bonds, but once the trades are offset against each
other, the total drops to $1 billion, according to data from
Depository Trust and Clearing Corporation.  There are, by
contrast, $129 billion of swaps written on Brazilian sovereign
debt, DealBook says.

In recent days, DealBook discloses, the cost of using the swaps to
protect against an Argentine default had risen.

After the International Swaps and Derivatives Association decides
that the swaps have been activated, they have to be settled so
their holders can get paid, reports DealBook.  The price at which
the swaps pay out is determined at a special auction.  The
association said it would publish details of the auction for
Argentina swaps in due course, the report notes.

The pay out on the swaps will depend on what investors believe
they will recover on the defaulted Argentine bonds, DealBook adds.


ARGENTINA: U.S. Judge Rejects Appeal for New Mediator
-----------------------------------------------------
Alexandra Stevenson, writing for The New York Times' DealBook,
reported that a lawyer for Argentina told a federal judge that the
nation had lost faith in the mediator appointed to work with a
group of hedge funds that hold the country's bonds after the
mediator issued a statement saying the country was in "imminent
default."

That statement, according to the lawyer, Jonathan Blackman, was
"harmful and prejudicial," and he asked that the mediator, David
Pollack, be replaced.  Judge Thomas P. Griesa of Federal District
Court in Manhattan, however, rejected the request and said talks
would have to continue.


ARGENTINA: Moody's Affirms Caa1 Issuer Rating; Outlook Negative
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has affirmed Argentina's Caa1 issuer
rating, which also applies to domestic law bonds, confirmed the
(P)Caa2 rating for its foreign law bonds, and affirmed the Ca
rating on the original defaulted bonds. The long-term issuer
rating was placed on negative outlook. The rating action concludes
the review, direction uncertain, of Argentina's foreign law bond
rating that Moody's initiated on 2 July 2014.

As of July 30, holders of Argentine foreign legislation bonds
restructured in 2005 and 2010 had not received their scheduled
payment, following a 30 day grace period from the original June 30
payment date. Even though Argentina deposited the required funds
into a trustee account on June 26, legal proceedings in the US
impeded disbursement of these funds by the trustee. Argentina's
government has stated that it will continue making payments to the
trustee, but that it will not pay litigating bondholders at this
time.

Moody's considers that non-payment of debt obligations to
creditors after a grace period has expired is a default. The
(P)Caa2 long-term foreign law bond rating reflects the rating
agency's expectation that while there is a wide range of possible
loss outcomes for creditors, losses on these bonds are most likely
to be modest.

Moody's also affirmed Argentina's Not prime short-term ratings.

Rationale For The Negative Outlook

The negative outlook on Argentina's Caa1 issuer rating reflects
Moody's view that the default could increase pressure on
Argentina's official foreign exchange reserves amid continued
economic stagnation.

The negative outlook on foreign legislation debt also reflects
uncertainty over how the current legal impasse will be resolved,
which implies an increased risk that ultimate losses for
bondholders could be significantly greater than 20%, a scenario
which would prompt a ratings downgrade from the current (P)Caa2
rating on such bonds.

Argentina is mired in stagflation with a GDP that declined 0.2%
year-over-year during the first quarter and high inflation of over
30%, driven in good part by continued currency depreciation. The
default is likely to exacerbate the economic contraction, increase
pressure on the exchange rate, and push inflation even higher.

Ratings Rationale

Moody's rates Argentina's debt issued under foreign legislation
(P)Caa2, one notch below the government's Caa1 issuer rating that
applies to its domestic legislation debt. The (P)Caa2 rating
reflects the higher expected loss Moody's ascribes to foreign law
bonds because they are subject to ongoing legal proceedings
outside the sovereign jurisdiction of the Argentine government in
US courts.

The (P)Caa2 rating is consistent with losses of up to 20% for
issuers that are approaching or in default. The rating action
takes into account a scenario in which the legal impasse that
prevents the government of Argentina from paying restructured bond
creditors continues into early 2015. In such a situation, the
expected loss on defaulted debt payments would not exceed 20%
level, consistent with a Caa2 rating.

In October 2012, a US Second Circuit judge ruled that Argentina
must comply with the pari passu, or equal treatment, clause in its
bond contracts and cannot discriminate against the debt that was
not restructured in favor of the bonds that were issued in the
2005 and 2010 sovereign debt restructurings. Furthermore, it ruled
that the Argentine government must pay litigating bondholders
concurrently with any payments to holders of its restructured debt
and in full (i.e., 100% of accelerated principal and accrued
interest).

The paying agent on the restructured bonds, The Bank of New York
(BONY), is subject to the injunction, and so even after Argentina
deposited the payments for bondholders, BONY could not legally
transfer those payments to the accounts of bondholders, leading to
the July 30th default.

The default will likely pressure the dollar-peso exchange rate as
speculative dollar demand by Argentines leads to higher capital
outflows. This may negatively impact official reserves, which have
fallen almost by half over the last three years, although reserves
rose modestly in April and May 2014 to $29 billion, roughly equal
to the foreign law bonds outstanding. From a credit standpoint,
the evolution of official reserves is particularly significant in
the case of Argentina because they are the sole source for meeting
government foreign currency obligations.

What Could Move The Ratings Up/Down

A downgrade of the issuer rating could result if the first- and
second-round effects of Argentina's default end up having a
significant negative impact on the main economic and debt metrics.
In this respect, a persistent decline in international reserves or
a rise in the government's debt ratios could also result in a
lower rating. A further downgrade of the foreign legislation bonds
could result if Argentina's reaction to a final court ruling
involves missed payments to restructured debt bondholders for a
prolonged period of time.

Conversely, although the negative outlook indicates that a
positive rating action is unlikely over the near-term horizon,
Moody's would consider changing the government bond rating outlook
to stable upon evidence that Argentina's external funding options
have improved and that economic policies have become more
consistent and predictable. Moody's would also consider aligning
the rating of Argentina's foreign legislation bonds with the
issuer rating, if the final default resolution does not affect
Argentina's payments on its restructured debt.

BUENOS AIRES: Fitch Cuts Long Term, Local Currency IDR to 'CCC'
---------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has downgraded several Argentine local and regional
governments' long-term and local currency IDR and related issues.
These rating actions follow Fitch's downgrade of Argentina's
foreign currency and local currency sovereign IDR to 'RD/CCC',
along with the Country Ceiling to 'CCC'.

KEY RATING DRIVERS

Fitch's downgrade of the local currency IDR by one notch reflects
the agency's view that the economy will suffer from higher
uncertainty and financial volatility following the sovereign
default, especially as the duration of default is unpredictable.
The Argentine economy is already in recession and this is likely
to worsen as the default event affects confidence and potentially
further constrains foreign exchange flows to the country, leading
to exchange rate volatility (official as well as parallel market
rates).  Potentially higher fiscal deficits and monetization of
those deficits could further weaken Argentina's economy.
Moreover, pressure on foreign reserves is likely to resume,
especially next year as there are sizeable maturities falling due
on some of these bonds (e.g. Boden 2015).

Fitch's downgrade of the Country Ceiling reflects the view that
capital controls could be tightened further in the context of the
sovereign's limited foreign financing options, especially as the
authorities attempt to prevent a faster decline in international
reserves.  This could potentially impair the private sector and
subnational's ability to access foreign exchange to meet debt
service.

RATING SENSITIVITIES

A change in Argentina's country ceiling would lead to a change in
the same direction on the Argentine local and regional government
ratings.

Fitch has downgraded the following ratings:

City of Buenos Aires

   -- Long-term and local currency IDR to 'CCC' from 'B-';
   -- Short-term and local currency IDR to 'C' from 'B';
   -- Euro medium-term note programme (EMTN) up to US$2,290
      million: long-term rating to 'CCC' from 'B-';
   -- Series 7 for US$50 million: long-term rating to 'CCC' from
      'B-';
   -- Series 8 for US$475 million: long-term rating to 'CCC' from
      'B-';
   -- Series 10 for US$415 million: long-term rating to 'CCC' from
      'B-';
   -- Programme of Short-Term Treasury Bills up to ARP950 million:
      short-term rating to 'C' from 'B'.

Province of Salta

   -- Long-term and local currency IDR to 'CCC' from 'B-';
   -- Secured Note (Provincial Law 7,691) for USD 185 million
      Long-term rating to 'CCC' from 'B-'.

Municipality of La Plata

   -- Long-term and local currency Issuer Default Rating (IDR) to
      'CCC' from 'B-';

SMU S.A.: S&P Lowers CCR to 'SD' on Missed Amortization Payment
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its long-term corporate
credit rating on SMU S.A. y Subsidiarias (SMU) to 'SD' (selective
default) from 'CCC+'.  At the same time, S&P lowered its rating on
the $300 million unsecured notes to 'CCC-' from 'CCC+'.

"The downgrade reflects our view of the company's failure to make
its debt amortization payment of about $2.8 million owed to Bice
Bank, after SMU failed to obtain a waiver from it," said Standard
& Poor's credit analyst Sandra Tinoco.

"We now believe that the risk of the company to face a default,
distressed exchange, or redemption in the next six months has
increased as we now believe that the sale of Construmart will take
longer and the company will continue depending on banks' waivers,
sale of assets, and/or capital injections.  This scenario also
increases the company's risk of facing a cross-default of its
global and local credits with bondholders, including the $300
million unsecured notes.  Therefore, we are lowering our issue
rating to 'CCC-' from 'CCC+'," S&P said.

XSTRATA PLC: Miners Hail Evangelical's Proposed Talks
-----------------------------------------------------
Dominican Today reports that Dominican Republic Mining and
Petroleum Chamber (CAMIPE) President Jose Sena hailed the
Dominican Evangelical Unity Council's (CODUE) call for multiparty
talks to resolve the conflict over Glencore Falcondo's planned
mine at Loma Miranda (central).

The report notes that after calling it a healthy conflict, Mr.
Sena said the talks should be scientifically based in which both
the Government and all Dominican sectors can table a serious,
structured and technical dialogue over the mining project.  "The
country's mining development should benefit us all, so we feel
that the scenario raised by CODUE president Fidel Lorenzo is quite
timely to start those talks," the report quoted Mr. Sena as
saying.

"I agree with the Evangelical Council's proposal and call on
institutions and people convened by that important organization to
sit down and seek a solution to the Loma Miranda conflict, because
it's the proper way to solve conflicts in the country," Mr. Sena
said, the report discloses.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
Jan. 22, 2014, Dominican Today said that Chief Executive Officer
of Xstrata PLC's Falcondo reiterated that the company's presence
in the country depends on a long term mining, with cheap
electricity available, to produce and compete in world markets.
David Soares said they pin their hopes of extracting nickel at the
controversial site of Loma Miranda, between La Vega and Bonao
(central), for which they expect to get the mining permit,
according to Dominican Today.  But environmental and civil society
groups could keep them from carrying out the project, after the
Chamber of Deputies agreed with the protesters and passed a bill
which declares Loma Miranda a protected area, arguing that much of
the Cibao region's (north) water depends on it, the report
related.

EL SALVADOR: Tax Legislation Will Have Limited Impact says Fitch
----------------------------------------------------------------
Tax legislation passed by El Salvador's parliament demonstrates
the authorities' ability to implement tax reform, but it will have
a limited and delayed fiscal impact, Fitch Ratings says.  The
proposed fiscal responsibility framework (FRF), which has not yet
been approved by the legislature, will be of greater significance.

The reform creates a minimum corporate income tax equivalent to 1%
of net assets, repeals an exemption for newspapers and introduces
a tax on financial transactions.  When fully implemented in fiscal
2016, it is expected to add around 0.4% of GDP to total tax
collection, which is at the lower end of preliminary estimates as
the reform did not include taxes on luxury real state previously
under discussion.  There is also a risk that a financial tax will
damage growth and financial intermediation, especially if it is
passed on to consumers.

The authorities' ability to increase tax revenue via reforms and
collection enhancements (the tax burden rose to 15.4% of GDP last
year from 12.6% in 2009) despite low economic growth is an
acknowledged ratings strength.  But Fitch did not expect the
latest reform to yield large, extra revenues, and expenditure
growth has driven larger fiscal deficits in recent years.  A more
meaningful initiative is the FRF, which aims at improving El
Salvador's fiscal position and debt dynamics over the medium term.
There is no clear timeline for the discussion of the FRF that was
expected to be dealt with in tandem with the tax reform.

In addition to a further increase in the tax burden to 17% of GDP,
the FRF's original goals included achieving primary balances and
limiting current expenditure and wages, and reducing nonfinancial
public sector debt.  However, the plan sees most consolidation
coming after 2017.  Without substantial pickup in economic growth
or more front-loaded consolidation, we see little prospect of debt
dynamics stabilizing in the near term, and public debt could rise
to 65% of GDP by 2016, approaching twice the 'BB' category median
of 35%.  Implementation risk remains high, and the abstention of
the main opposition party from yesterday's vote on tax reform
shows that the political consensus supporting consolidation may
not be firm.

Fitch affirmed El Salvador's 'BB-'/Negative sovereign rating last
month.

* JAMAICA: Debt Stock up by J$16 Billion
----------------------------------------
RJR News reports that the government said the country's debt stock
rose by J$16 billion in the first three months of the current
fiscal year.

The growth is however slower than the J$28B it increased by in the
corresponding period last year, according to RJR News.

The report notes that with the increase, the debt rose to J$1.966
trillion or about US$17.5 million at the end of July 2014.

VERACRUZ: Moody's Assigns Ba1 Debt Rating to MXN695MM Loan
----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's de Mexico assigned debt ratings of Ba1 (Global Scale,
local currency) and A1.mx (Mexico National Scale) to the following
enhanced loan:

-MXN 695 million from Interacciones (original face value) with a
maturity of 15 years.

The enhanced loan is payable through a trust (Banco Invex as
trustee F/1176), to which the state has pledged the flows and
rights to 1.16% of its federal participation revenues.

Ratings Rationale

The Ba1/A1.mx debt ratings assigned to the aforementioned enhanced
loans reflect the underlying credit worthiness of the state of
Veracruz (Ba3/A3.mx), supported by the following legal and credit
enhancements embedded in the loans:

1. Validity of the legal authorization of the transaction, which
authorizes the trust to be used as a mechanism for debt service
payment.

2. Strong trust structure based on an irrevocable notification to
the federal treasury regarding the transfer of rights and flows of
participation revenues to the trustee.

3. Estimated cash flow generate moderate debt service coverage
ratios. Under a Moody's base case scenario, cash flows within the
trust are projected to provide 2.3X debt service coverage at the
lowest point over the life of the loan. Under a stress case
scenario, estimated cash flows are projected to provide 1.7X debt
service coverage.

4. Strong level of reserves within the master trust that
represents 3.0X debt service coverage under a stress case scenario
and provide enough cushion against payment delays.

What Could Change The Ratings Up/Down

Given the links between the loans and the credit quality of the
obligor, an upgrade of the state of Veracruz's issuer ratings
could exert upward pressure on the loan debt ratings. Conversely,
a downgrade of the state of Veracruz's issuer ratings or if debt
service coverage levels fall materially below or expectations
would likely result in a downgrade of the ratings of the loans.

The methodologies used in this rating were Rating Methodology for
Enhanced Municipal and State Loans in Mexico published in June
2014 and Regional and Local Governments published in January 2013.

The period of time covered in the financial information used to
determine Veracruz's rating is between 1 January 2009 and 31
December 2013.

TERMINALES PORTUARIOS: Fitch Affirms BB- Rating on USD110MM Notes
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings affirms Terminales Portuarios Euroandinos (TPE)
USD110 million senior secured notes at 'BB-'.  The Rating Outlook
is Stable.

RATIONALE

The affirmation of the 'BB-' rating is based on completion of the
expansion project on a timely basis and financial performance
generally consistent with base case expectations.  Flat growth in
container volumes in 2013 appears to be rebounding in the first
quarter 2014 (1Q'14).  Volume and price risk remain the primary
risk exposures and are mitigated by the high average coverage
ratios, liquidity, and structural protections.

KEY RATING DRIVERS

Concentrated and Volatile Traffic - Volume Risk: Weaker
The Port of Paita is a secondary port of call with considerable
concentration in cargo type, business lines, and customers.  Far
from major economic centers, the port is exposed to cargo
volatility, as contractual agreements with shipping lines are
limited and access to overland transportation infrastructure is
modest.

Limited Tariff Flexibility - Price Risk: Weaker

The port revenues are determined under the concession contract
with limited flexibility to adjust for increasing costs.  A
minimum revenue guarantee granted by the government is
insufficient to cover debt service payments.  Tariffs and fees
that are initially established in the concession agreement may be
subject to regulatory modifications beginning 2019.

Reliable Facilities Renovation Program - Infrastructure
Development & Renewal: Midrange

The project expansion (Phase I of IV) required under the
concession agreement was completed on time in June and is expected
to begin operations in September following acceptance by the
grantor.  The project has a well-defined capital improvement
planning and funding process, and the bulk of investments required
by the operator have been met.  Additional investments to
infrastructure facilities required under the concession agreement
are contingent on future growth and budgeted in the financial
projections.

Adequate Structural Protections - Debt Structure: Stronger
The project's financial flexibility is mainly sustained by the
existence of adequate liquidity reserves available for debt
service and/or for construction costs of Phase II and III.  The
structure includes a five-year principal grace period which
incorporates a strong provision to trap cash to prefund investment
costs of Phase II and III, and includes a dividend distribution
test.

Financial Metrics

Projected Fitch Rating Case average debt service coverage ratio
(DSCR) is 1.67x through 2037 with significant variability arising
from mandatory investments under the concession contract.  The
minimum DSCR of 0.19x projected to occur in 2026 is mitigated by
mandatory reserving and cash traps.  The credit quality is
commensurate with the rating despite the low minimum as
illustrated by the 1.47x minimum DSCR including reserves and the
rating case loan-life coverage ratio (LLCR) of 1.32x.

Peer Comparison

The closest rated peer to Paita in terms of size and regional
importance is Commonwealth Port Authority (CPA).  Both projects
are rated at the 'BB-' level and have weak volume and price risk
rating drivers.  It should be noted, however, that CPA has a
stronger debt structure given its moderate leverage and robust
liquidity reserves.

RATING SENSITIVITIES

Negative - Sustained failure to meet volume growth estimates could
place additional pressure on coverage ratios and limit capacity to
make necessary investments and result in a downgrade.

Positive - Sustained multi-year traffic increases and further
development of special services revenue providing consistent base-
line revenues could lead to an upgrade.

SECURITY

The bonds are secured by the pledge of all capital stock of the
issuer, a mortgage between the issuer and sub-collateral agent,
and a perfected security interest in all of the issuer's assets.

TRANSACTION SUMMARY

In 2013, the port operated 166,016 of 20-foot equivalent units
(TEUs), an increase of 0.3% over the prior year and 7.8% below
Fitch's base case projections.  The variance was primarily driven
by the declines in the local fishing industry and the agricultural
production of grapes and mango.  The port's revenues, however,
grew 11.8% in 2013 over the previous year, and surpassed Fitch's
base case projections by 6.4%.  Revenue growth at the port
reflects an increase of activities in energy connections and on-
board reefers, which generate a large portion of the special
services revenues.  The operator expects these revenues to
continue to grow with the additional storage capacity available
with the expansion.  This will allow the port to compete with off-
site storage facilities that maintain a large market share.

Operating expenses increased to USD15 million in 2013 from USD13
million the prior year and were driven by the increase in special
services.  The resulting EBITDA was USD10 million, USD 1.5 million
under the projected base case EBITDA for the year.  During 1Q'14,
the port has operated nearly 52,000 TEUs, an increase of 19% over
the same period in 2013.  Operating revenues were USD8.5 million
in 1Q'14, representing a 29.7% increase over 1Q'13.  Meanwhile,
operating expenses were USD3.5 million for 1Q'14, approximately
16.9% higher than the period one year earlier.

Construction works have advanced in line with the initial schedule
with completion of Phase I of IV being declared in June 2014, on
schedule with completion costs according to budget.  The expansion
is expected to begin operations in September following acceptance
from the grantor.  As established in the concession contract, the
port has also begun to make deposits into the Phase II account,
which is to be funded when 160,000 TEUs are reached.  Investments
required under Phase II are to be completed 18 months following
the year when at least 180,000 TEUs are handled.

The port is located in the region of Piura, a small city with low
economic activity, 1,030 km northwest of Lima.  Paita is connected
to a major highway that links it to the Yurimaguas port (Amazon
system) with no significant competition.  The location provides a
competitive advantage over Callao and Guayaquil, for serving the
Northwestern Peruvian market.

OFG BANCORP: S&P Lowers Counterparty Credit Rating to 'B+'
----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it lowered its
counterparty credit rating on Puerto Rico-based regional banking
company OFG Bancorp (OFG) to 'B+' from 'BB-'.  At the same time,
S&P lowered its counterparty credit rating on OFG's main bank
subsidiary, Oriental Bank, to 'BB' from 'BB+'.  S&P removed the
ratings from CreditWatch with negative implications, where it
placed them on July 14, 2014.  S&P also lowered its ratings on the
preferred stock by one notch to 'CCC+' from 'B-' given it sees
higher risk of payment deferral.  The outlook on both entities is
negative.

The rating action is largely based on S&P's recent two-notch
downgrade of Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority (PREPA) to
'CCC', as well as S&P's previous downgrades of the Commonwealth of
Puerto Rico and Puerto Rico Aqueduct & Sewer Authority (PRASA).
All these rating actions are associated with the passage of the
Puerto Rico Public Corporation Debt Enforcement and Recovery Act,
signed into law June 28, 2014, which allows certain Puerto Rican
public entities to restructure all or portions of their debt
obligations, should the need arise.  S&P thinks the passage of
this legislation increases the risk that OFG could be subject to
substantial losses related to these loan exposures, which could
negatively affect its capital and also potentially hurt S&P's
assessment of its business position given geographic and borrower
concentrations.

"Despite a notable decline in recent quarters, OFG still has
substantial loan exposures to Puerto Rico instrumentalities, or so
called public corporations, municipalities, and the Commonwealth
of Puerto Rico, which we view very unfavorably from a geographic
and borrower concentration perspective," said Standard & Poor's
credit analyst Robert Hansen.

Specifically, the company's loan exposures to the Commonwealth of
Puerto Rico and certain public entities and municipalities was
roughly $693 million as of June 30, 2014, down from $859 million
on Dec. 31, 2013, and $976 million as of Sept. 30, 2013.  As of
March 31, 2014, $84.2 million of these exposures had pledged
securities rated above 'A', according to OFG's most recent Form
10-Q.  Despite the decline, S&P still views these exposures as
very large relative to the size of the company's total loan
portfolio and capital base, as well as relative to the size of
these exposures among several of the bank's local peers.  Indeed,
these exposures are nearly as large as the company's common
stockholder's equity, which was nearly $749 million as of June 30,
2014.  S&P expects the bank to remain marginally profitable
despite the higher loan loss provisions that it forecasts.  S&P
also thinks loan performance could deteriorate over the next two
years given large Puerto Rico government-related exposures and the
still-weak economy in Puerto Rico.

"We currently forecast that the company's risk-adjsuted capital
(RAC) ratio will remain at just more than 10% by the end of 2015.
However, this is toward the low end of the 10%-15% range that we
typically deem as strong under our bank criteria.  Relative to our
previous forecast, we have increased our expected provisions for
loan losses by roughly $100 million over the next two years given
potential losses on Puerto Rico government-related exposures.
Furthermore, we think that the company could become more active in
returning capital to its common shareholders, which could reduce
our projections for capital ratios.  For example, OFG
substantially increased its quarterly common stock cash dividend
in late 2013 and could again resume common share buybacks under
its existing authorization program.  As such, we could lower our
capital and earnings assessment given the potential for loan
losses that are greater than what we currently have incorporated
in our analysis," S&P said.

"We have included a transition notch of negative one to arrive at
the issuer credit rating.  This is to reflect the uncertainty of
the magnitude of possible losses and its impact on the bank's
financial and business profile.  We think the potential for losses
on Oriental Bank's loans to Puerto Rico instrumentalities and
other government-related entities has increased substantially.  As
such, we think the risk of higher loan losses could reduce OFG's
capital base but could also potentially hurt its asset quality
metrics or its ability to grow its franchise.  We think our
assessment of the impact from potential loan losses will become
clearer over the next two years," S&P added.

"The outlook is negative, largely based on the weak Puerto Rican
economy and substantial exposures to Puerto Rico instrumentalities
and municipalities," said Mr. Hansen.

S&P thinks these exposures, fiscal concerns of the Commonwealth,
and economic weakness present some risk to the company's loan
performance and S&P's forecast, especially given its recent
downgrades of PREPA and PRASA.  S&P could lower the rating on OFG
Bancorp and Oriental Bank if certain large public
instrumentalities or a large number of municipalities miss debt or
interest payments or restructure their debt obligations, resulting
in material losses for the company.  S&P could also lower its
rating if it expects loan performance to weaken materially, if it
no longer views OFG's capitalization as strong, or if S&P again
lower its ratings on the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, PREPA, or
PRASA.  More specifically, S&P could lower the rating if it
expects the RAC ratio to fall and remain below 10%, if adjusted
nonperforming assets, including restructured loans, rise to more
than 7% of total loans, or if net charge-offs rise higher than 2%.
Therefore, the negative outlook reflects the potential for lower
assessments of OFG's capital and earnings, as well as lower
assessments of its business or risk positions.  S&P is unlikely to
raise the rating, given the bank's concentrated loan exposures
within Puerto Rico, substantial Puerto Rico government related
exposures, and its more active acquisition strategy in recent
years.


PUERTO RICO INDUSTRIAL: S&P Corrects Rev. Bond Ratings to 'BB-'
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services corrected by lowering its
rating on Puerto Rico Industrial, Tourist, Educational, Medical,
and Environmental Control Facilities Financing Authority's series
1995A revenue bonds (Guaynabo Municipal Government Center Project)
and series 1998A revenue bonds (Guaynabo Warehouse For Emergencies
Project) issued on behalf of the municipality of Guaynabo to 'BB-'
from 'BB+'.  At the same time, Standard & Poor's removed them from
CreditWatch with negative implications, where they had been placed
Jan. 24, 2014.  The outlook is negative.

* URUGUAY: IDB OKs $40.9-Million Loan for Solar Energy Project
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) has approved a $40.9
million loan from its ordinary capital and $25 million from the
Canada Climate Fund, which is administered by the Bank, to finance
the private sector in Uruguay in the construction, operation and
maintenance of a photovoltaic solar energy plant and its related
facilities.

With a total installed capacity of 64.8MW, the plant will be part
of the La Jacinta Solar Energy Project located five kilometers
south of Salto in northwest Uruguay.  It will supply on average 96
GWh of electricity per year to the national grid, allowing for an
easing of Uruguay's dependence on energy from fossil fuels.

"This marks another step forward for the country in the
introduction of non-traditional renewable energy in the energy
network," said Jean-Marc Aboussouan, head of infrastructure at the
Structured and Corporate Financing Department, the IDB unit tasked
with financing large-scale private sector projects.  "It also
shows that solar energy, like wind power, can be competitive and
viable in financial terms in the region."

The main benefits expected from the project include a 64.8MW
increase in installed capacity in non-conventional renewable
energy.  This will support Uruguay's strategy of diversifying its
energy network, eliminate approximately 18,000 tons per year in
carbon emissions and boost the private sector's role in the energy
sector.  Furthermore, it will encourage competition by bringing a
new operator into the market and a new technology into the sector.

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.
