BANCO INDUSVAL: S&P Revises Outlook to Neg. & Affirms 'BB-' LT ICR
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services revised its outlook on Banco
Indusval & Partners S.A. (BI&P) to negative from stable.  At the
same time, S&P affirmed its global scale long-term 'BB-' and
short-term 'B' issuer credit ratings.  S&P also affirmed its
national scale long-term 'brA' and short-term 'brA-2' issuer
credit ratings on the bank.

BI&P's weakening risk-adjusted capital (RAC) ratio was due to the
continued clean-up of its loan portfolio, which resulted in a net
loss of R$120 million in 2013, and S&P's April 2014 revision of
Brazil's BICRA to group '5' from group '4'.  S&P's risk-adjusted
capital framework (RACF) applies risk weights according to the
BICRA's economic risk score.  Therefore, BI&P's RAC ratio now
incorporates higher charges for its corporate, financial, and
retail exposures due to a higher economic risk score.  RACF also
applies credit-related risk weights to the bank's exposure to the
government.  This has also weakened BI&P's RAC ratio due to
Brazil's March 2014 downgrade to 'BBB-/A-3' from 'BBB/A-2'.  As a
result, S&P revised its assessment of BI&P's capital and earnings
to "adequate" from "strong."  However, BI&P's capital base
improved during 2013 from the capital injection of up to R$90
million and the agreement with Banco Intercap's shareholders to
inject R$107.5 million of the proceeds they received from the sale
of the bank to BI&P.

CHEMICAL IX: Moody's Assigns B2 Rating on Sub. Mezzanine Shares
Moody's America Latina has assigned definitive ratings of Baa3
(sf) (Global Scale, Local Currency) and (sf) (Brazilian
National Scale) to the senior shares, and B2 (sf) (Global Scale,
Local Currency) and (sf) (Brazilian National Scale) to the
subordinate mezzanine shares issued by Chemical IX - FIDC
Industria Petroquimica, a securitization backed by a pool of trade
receivables and originated by Braskem Group.

Issuer: Chemical IX - FIDC Industria Petroquimica (Chemical IX -

Senior Shares - Baa3 (sf) (Global Scale, Local Currency) and (sf) (Brazilian National Scale)

Subordinated Mezzanine Shares - B2 (sf) (Global Scale, Local
Currency) and (sf) (Brazilian National Scale)

Ratings Rationale

Moody's bases the ratings on the following factors:

- Credit enhancement in the form of subordination for senior
shares ranging from 9.09% to 13.04% to mitigate losses due to
obligor default or dilution

- The adequate eligibility criteria of the trade receivables,
represented by electronic invoices to be acquired by the issuer,
which include concentration limits by client, delinquency by
client and maximum term of the trade receivables. The maximum
individual obligor concentration limit is 3%.

- Low and stable historical delinquency and dilution levels of the
sellers' trade receivables portfolio

- Very low commingling risk as payments by obligors are made to
the fund's segregated account that it maintains at Banco Bradesco
S.A. (Baa1 long-term bank deposit rating, Global Scale, Local
Currency; and, Brazilian National Scale)

- Braskem Group's sound track record sponsoring securitization
transactions and the stable performance of these previous
transactions. Chemical IX -- FIDC is Braskem Group's ninth
securitization of its trade receivables portfolio. The performance
of past transactions has been in line with the original
assumptions that Moody's used to rate the transactions.

Chemical IX - FIDC is a close-ended FIDC and has a final legal
maturity of 72 months from closing.The senior shares and the
mezzanine shares accrue, on a daily basis, a floating rate of
interest equivalent to the DI rate (Brazilian interbank rate) plus
a fixed rate of 0.98% and 2.64% per annum, respectively.

The transaction has a 66-month revolving period followed by a 6-
month amortization period. During the 66-month revolving period
the fund will not make any principal payments on the senior and
mezzanine shares; it will make interest payments semi-annually.
During the final 6-month amortization period, starting in month
67, it will make monthly principal and interest payments. Senior
and mezzanine shares will follow the same amortization schedule.

Amortization payments to the mezzanine shares will only be allowed
(1) after the fund has made the scheduled senior amortization
payments, and (2) as long as the fund maintains the minimum senior
subordination ratio. As long as there are senior and mezzanine
shares outstanding, partial amortization payments to junior
subordinated shares are allowed if the mezzanine subordination is
above 2.8%.

The originators of the securitized receivables are Braskem S.A.
and fully controlled subsidiaries including Braskem QPar S.A.
(previously known as Quattor Participacoes S.A.) and Braskem
Petroquimica Ltda. (previously known as Quattor Petroquimica
S.A.), together Braskem Group or the sellers.

Commingling risk is mitigated because obligors are instructed to
pay directly into a segregated account in the name of the fund by
means of invoices that Banco Bradesco and other selected
collection banks generate. The sellers must remit any monies they
receive to the segregated account within two business days; a non-
automatic acceleration event (evento de avaliacao) is triggered if
payments made directly to the sellers' account are higher than 5%
of fund's net assets. The sellers will act as primary servicer.

Moody's analyzed the sellers' receivables pool for the 36-month
period reviewed by KPMG starting in June 2011 and ending in May
2014. During this period, Braskem Group generated BRL 83.2 billion
of trade receivables from approximately 1,046,880 separate
invoices. As modeling input assumptions, Moody's used a central
mean of 0.04% monthly dilutions and 0.14% monthly losses over the
outstanding balance, and it assumed portfolio turnover of 39.38
days. Moody's calculated loss assumptions using as a proxy
delinquencies 91 to 120 days past due over the total portfolio.

Moody's sensitivity analysis provides a quantitative, model-
indicated calculation of how Moody's rating of a structured
finance security could vary if certain input parameters used in
the initial rating process differed. Moody's key ratings model
assumptions for this transaction are Braskem's rating, loss rate
and dilution rate.

Stress scenarios:

If Moody's downgraded Braskem Finance Ltd's rating to Ba2 from
Baa3 and the loss rate and dilution rate doubled, the ratings on
the senior and mezzanine shares would remain the same.

Factors that would lead to an upgrade or downgrade of the rating:

Factors that may lead to a downgrade of the ratings include an
increase in defaults and dilution levels beyond the level Moody's
assumed when rating this transaction. The performance of Braskem
Group's trade receivables, may be affected, among other factors,
by international competition in the petrochemical industry and a
severe economic downturn.

The principal methodology used in this rating was "Moody's
Approach to Rating Trade Receivables Backed Transactions"
published in July 2002.

SABESP: Moody's Lowers Baseline Credit Assessment Rating to 'ba1'
Moody's America Latina Ltda. affirmed the local currency issuer
ratings of Cia de Saneamento Basico do Estado de Sao Paulo
(SABESP) of Baa3 on the global scale and on the Brazilian
national scale. At the same time, Moody's downgraded the BCA to
ba1 from baa3 and changed the outlook on SABESP's issuer ratings
to negative from stable.

Ratings Rationale

The downgrade in the BCA and change to a negative outlook for
SABESP's issuer ratings reflects uncertainties about the company's
ability to post credit metrics compatible with its investment
grade rating while it maintains an appropriate liquidity position
over the medium term which currently remains adequate.

SABESP is a Government Related Issuer (GRI) as defined in Moody's
rating methodology "The Application of Joint Default Analysis to
Government Related Issuers". Moody's methodology for GRIs is to
systematically incorporate into the rating both the stand-alone
credit risk profile or Baseline Credit Assessment (BCA) of the
company as well as an assessment of the likelihood that its
government owner would provide extraordinary support to the
company's obligations during a period of financial distress.

In accordance with Moody's methodology for government related
issuers, or GRIs, the Baa3 issuer rating of SABESP reflects the
combination of the following inputs:

- Baseline credit assessment (BCA) ba1

- High-level dependence

- Strong level of government support

- The Baa2 rating of the State Government of Sao Paulo, which has
a stable outlook

These uncertainties derive from the impact of the severe drought
season that has been depleting the water levels of the company's
main reservoirs since the beginning of the year. The water savings
program SABESP implemented in February 2014, as well as the
increase in the water levels of the Cantareira water reservoir in
May 2014, achieved through exploiting technical reserves have
prevented SABESP from being forced into taking more severe
measures which could have included a water rationing program.

Nevertheless, the negative impact from the implementation of the
company's water savings program can be seen in the material
decline in the operating margin registered in the second quarter
which will result in weaker cash flow and profitability in 2014 in
comparison with previous years as a result of lower volume sales
and the bonuses being paid to those consumers that qualify due to
their reduced consumption of water.

Should SABESP be forced to extend the water savings program into
2015, cash flow metrics will further deteriorate and potentially
lead the company to breach some financial covenants embedded in
most of the company's outstanding debt which would entitle
creditors and bond holders to accelerate the maturity of their
respective debts. A mitigating factor to help to improve the
company's cash flow would be the application of the 5.44% tariff
increase adjusted by the inflation incurred during this period as
measured by the consumer price index (IPC-A) up to the end of the
year that SABESP was eligible to receive since April as determined
by the regulator ARSESP, which the company decided to postpone
given the launch of its water savings program.

Moody's does not expect that SABESP's currently comfortable
liquidity standing will change in the short-term given its
sizeable cash position, low level of short-term debt and proven
resilient access to the local and international banking and
capital markets which it will need to fund its major cash needs
mainly consisting of amortization of expiring debt during this
period. According to management, around 85% of its financing needs
over the next five years have already been negotiated with
multilateral agencies and public banks.

Notwithstanding, the extension of the existing water savings
program into 2015 would inevitably reduce SABESP's cash flow
generation further and put pressure on its liquidity position. If
it were to breach some financial covenants, the company could be
forced to renegotiate the terms and conditions on part of its

Under this scenario, SABESP would, most likely, be able to obtain
waivers from most of its creditors and avoid the acceleration of
their respective debts. Moody's does not rule out that there could
still be challenges during such a stressed scenario mainly in
relation to the debenture and bond holders.

Moody's will continue to closely monitor the company's operating
performance over the next several quarters paying close attention,
particularly to the water levels in the company's main water
reservoirs to evaluate the potential impact that they may have on
cash flow and liquidity because it may become necessary to further
extend the water savings program or implement a water rationing

Rating Outlook

The negative outlook reflects Moody's expectation that SABESP will
continue to suffer a decline in its operating margins for the
remainder of the year coupled with the uncertainties regarding the
potential extension of the water savings program well into 2015,
which would inevitably weaken the company's credit metrics further
and potentially deteriorate its liquidity position.

What Could Change the Rating - Up

In light of the expected deterioration in the company's credit
metrics for 2014 and potentially 2015, an upgrade rating action is
very unlikely in the short-to medium term. A stabilization of the
outlook could be considered if the ratio of FFO/Net Debt achieved
25% on a sustainable basis.

What Could Change the Rating - Down

Moody's would consider downgrading the company's ratings if there
is a material deterioration in the quality of the regulatory
framework or if the company's liquidity position becomes
inadequate. Quantitatively, there would be pressure for a
downgrade if FFO/Net Debt fell to the 15% level.

SABESP is the largest Brazilian sanitation company as it provides
water and sewage services to 364 municipalities in the state of
Sao Paulo. The state government of Sao Paulo is SABESP's major
shareholder, holding 50.3% of its total and voting capital. The
company's shares are listed in the Brazilian stock exchange
(BOVESPA) and New York stock exchange. In the last twelve months
ended June 30, 2014, SABESP posted consolidated net sales of BRL
8,968 million (USD 3,916 million), which does not include
construction revenues, and net profit of BRL 1,846 million (USD
806 million).

LDK Solar Co., Ltd. -- based in Hi-
Tech Industrial Park, Xinyu City, Jiangxi Province, People's
Republic of China, is a vertically integrated manufacturer of
photovoltaic products, including high-quality and low-cost
polysilicon, solar wafers, cells, modules, systems, power
projects and solutions.

LDK Solar was incorporated in the Cayman Islands on May 1, 2006,
by LDK New Energy, a British Virgin Islands company wholly owned
by Xiaofeng Peng, LDK's founder, chairman and chief executive
officer, to acquire all of the equity interests in Jiangxi LDK
Solar from Suzhou Liouxin Industry Co., Ltd., and Liouxin
Industrial Limited.

LDK Solar Co disclosed a net loss of $1.05 billion on $862.88
million of net sales for the year ended Dec. 31, 2012, as compared
with a net loss of $608.95 million on $2.15 billion of net sales
for the year ended Dec. 31, 2011.

KPMG, in Hong Kong, China, issued a "going concern" qualification
on the consolidated financial statements for the year ended
Dec. 31, 2012.  The independent auditors noted that the Group has
a net working capital deficit and a deficit in total equity as of
Dec. 31, 2012, and is restricted from incurring additional
indebtedness as it has not met a financial covenant ratio as
defined in the indenture governing the RMB-denominated US$-settled
senior notes.  These conditions raise substantial doubt about the

XSTRATA PLC: Glencore Issues Statement on Park in Dominican Rep.
(Glencore) Falconbridge Dominicana, C. por A. ("Falcondo") issued
a statement on the national park in Dominican Republic.

The statement said: "Before the position of the Chamber of
Deputies and the Senate of the Republic, adopted in urgency the
bill which would make the entire Loma Miranda a national park, the
company (Glencore) Falcondo feels it's our duty to express our
opinion publicly.

"The impact of Loma Miranda should be understood in different
aspects: environmental, economic and social.

                      Environmental impact

"To date there are no conclusive studies that allow making a wise
decision on whether Loma Miranda should be national park or not.

"The Atlas of biodiversity of the Ministry of the Environment and
Natural Resources indicates that there are no plants or animals in
danger of extinction in Loma Miranda, and Loma Miranda has little
relevance as a producer of water.  Likewise, the INDHRI (canals
and dams agency) also indicates that the Jaguey River does not
flow into the Rincon dam.

"It is also important to note that the total of the property
acquired by Falcondo in 1956, only 16% has been exploited for
mining development, leaving the remaining 84% as a wooded area in
the region.

"In regards to Loma Miranda, it has a total area of 42 square
kilometers and the area required for mining development is only
11%; or 4.6 square KM to be exploited in the mining industry for
the next 20 years.

                          Economic impact

"Fifty years ago when we set roots in this warm Dominican soil, we
have contributed to the economic development and the well-being of
the country in different areas.  We have created more than 12,000
direct and indirect jobs, invested more than $2 billion in tax
payments and dividends to the Dominican Government, more than $1
billion dollars in local labor, more than $500 million in payments
to Dominican suppliers and contractors and more than 50 million
dollars in social investment projects.

"Loma Miranda has 19.3 million tons of ore that if mining is
developed, the Dominican State, communities in Monsenor Noel and
La Vega provinces, and of course the company would benefit.  With
the operation of Loma Miranda, the Dominican economy would receive
about $5.7 billion dollars over the next 20 years.

"According to data from the Central Bank, the growth of domestic
exports from 2000 to 2013 have increased 375.5%, turning from
traditional products such as sugar, coffee, cocoa and tobacco, to
other lines, such as ferronickel representing 24.6% of that

"It should be noted that in 2007 the Dominican State received $427
million for the transaction, equivalent to 5% of the national

"If the Dominican State doesn't receive benefits for the operation
of Loma Miranda, where will the money come from? A higher tax
burden which will mean a heavier load for the final consumer?
What's the proposal to remove this big risk?

                           Social impact

"Falcondo has been characterized by a policy of social
responsibility and sustainable development in the communities
where it performs its operations.  We have invested more than $4
million to encourage SMEs and MSMES in Monsenor Noel and La Vega
provinces, we supply drinking water to thousands of residents of
the town of Bonao, and we manage trash pickup totaling 170 tons of
solid waste per day.

"We've conducted our adult literacy program for more than 20
years, supply school bus daily for 325 students from the
communities of Bonao, Bonaito, Hato Viejo, Rancho Nuevo and
Jayaco; sponsor more than 135 public school, which are attended by
more than 77,000 students and more than 2,100 teachers, and so
many other programs that seek to ensure that communities are self-
sustaining in the long term.

"These are some of the results we've achieved throughout the more
than 56 years for the good of the country, communities and the
company. Looking forward, Falcondo remains committed to continue
investing and contributing.  We're committed to rationality in
decision-making, we are committed to a better tomorrow that
benefits us all."

                 About (Glencore) Falcondo

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

Xstrata PLC is the operator of Falconbridge Dominicana, C. por A.
("Falcondo") with an 85.26% ownership.  Falcondo is a ferronickel
surface mining operation located in the Dominican Republic with
operations dating since 1971.

Headquartered in Zug, Switzerland, Xstrata PLC is a major producer
of coal, copper, nickel, primary vanadium and zinc and the largest
producer of ferrochrome.


CORP GROUP BANKING: S&P's BB- Rating Remain on Watch Developing
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that the 'BBB/A-2' ratings
on Corpbanca S.A. and 'BB-' ratings on Corp Group Banking S.A. (CG
Banking) remain on CreditWatch, where S&P placed them with
developing implications on Jan. 30, 2014.

The CreditWatch placement followed the announcement that Corp
Group (not rated and which owns CG Banking) and Itau Unibanco
Holding S.A. (BBB-/Stable/A-3) will merge their respective
subsidiaries, Corpbanca (which has operations in Chile and
Colombia) and Banco Itau Chile (not rated).

"Itau Unibanco Holding will control a 33.58% share in the merged
entity, Itau Corpbanca. Corp Group will hold a 32.92%
participation, and minority shareholders will have the remaining
share," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Ivana Recalde.  The
transaction requires prior consent from the IFC (which holds a 5%

* GRENADA: Gives Statement at the Conclusion of IMF Staff Mission
An International Monetary Fund (IMF) team visited Grenada during
August 18-27, 2014 to conduct discussions on the first review of
Grenada's IMF-supported program under the Extended Credit Facility
(ECF).  The program was approved on June 26, 2014 for a total
amount equivalent to SDR 14.04 million (about US$21.7 million, 120
percent of quota) with SDR 2.04 million disbursed upon program
approval.  Representatives from the World Bank, Caribbean
Development Bank, and Eastern Caribbean Central Bank accompanied
the mission.

The mission met with the Prime Minister and Minister of Finance
and Energy Keith C. Mitchell, the Permanent Secretary of the
Ministry of Finance Timothy Antoine, Deputy Permanent Secretary of
the Ministry of Finance Mike Sylvester, senior officials, as well
as representatives of the private sector and civil society,
including the Monitoring Committee for the Home-grown Program.
At the conclusion of the visit, Ms. Aliona Cebotari, the Fund's
mission chief for Grenada, made the following statement:

"Grenada has made a strong start in implementing its program. The
fiscal consolidation is on track and all quantitative performance
criteria for end-June were met.  The main structural benchmark for
the first review-the introduction of a new Public Finance
Management Act to strengthen budget preparation and execution in
line with best international practices-was also met.  The Fund
mission reached preliminary understandings with the authorities on
economic policies going forward.

"The economic recovery is slowly taking hold and the growth
outlook remains broadly in line with the program, while inflation
has been lower than expected. However, the economy continues to
face significant challenges from high unemployment, a large debt
overhang, and balance sheets weakened by impaired loans.

"Continued strong program implementation will be critical to
overcoming the challenges faced by the Grenadian economy.  Looking
ahead, the authorities' program will continue to focus on
restoring fiscal sustainability, strengthening competitiveness and
growth prospects, and securing financial stability.  In addition
to the programmed fiscal adjustment, progress on the comprehensive
debt restructuring underway will be needed to secure fiscal
sustainability.  The structural reform agenda will focus on: (i)
improving the business environment through amendments to the
Investment Promotion Act, the tax incentive regime, and regulatory
reforms to the energy sector; (ii) a continued strengthening of
the fiscal policy framework through the introduction of fiscal
responsibility legislation, new legislative frameworks for public
debt management and tax administration, and a regulatory framework
for the National Transformation Fund to ensure sustainable
management of the citizenship-by-investment receipts; (iv)
modernizing the public service; and (v) strengthening the
financial position and oversight of statutory bodies.

"These preliminary understandings are subject to approval by the
IMF's Management and Executive Board. Consideration of the first
review of Grenada's IMF-supported program under the ECF could take
place by the IMF's Executive Board in November. Upon approval, SDR
2 million (about US$3 million) would be made available to Grenada.

"The mission would like to thank the authorities and technical
staff for their excellent cooperation and kind hospitality, and
reaffirm the IMF's support for the government's efforts to
implement Grenada's program."

BANCO AHORRO: S&P Revises Outlook to Neg. & Affirms 'B' ICR
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services revised its outlook on Banco
Ahorro Famsa S.A. Institucion de Banca Multiple (BAF) to negative
from positive.  S&P also affirmed its 'B' long-term global scale
and 'mxBBB-/mxA-3' national scale issuer credit ratings on the

The rating action on Banco Famsa follows the similar actions on
Grupo Famsa S.A.B. de C.V. (Grupo Famsa; B/Negative/--), which
directly owns 100% of BAF.  S&P views BAF as a core entity of
Grupo Famsa.  S&P also revised the bank's SACP to 'b-' from 'bb'.
"The bank's sharply weakened asset quality, in our view, will
continue squeezing its profitability," said Standard & Poor's
credit analyst Ricardo Grisi.  Therefore, S&P has revised its
assessment of BAF's risk position to "very weak" from "moderate."

The ratings on BAF reflect its core status to Grupo Famsa. BAF's
business activities are mainly related to the group.  In addition,
the bank offers most of its products through the group's stores,
to customers of its other subsidiaries, and suppliers.  The
significant integration between the bank and the group generates
strategies, growth, and risk management that benefit BAF.  The
bank has a "weak" business position, "adequate" capital and
earnings, "very weak" risk position, "average" funding, and
"adequate" liquidity.

GRUPO FAMSA: S&P Affirms 'B' CCR, Revises Outlook to Negative
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services revised its outlook on the
corporate credit rating on Grupo Famsa S.A.B. de C.V. (GFamsa) to
negative from positive.  At the same time, S&P affirmed the 'B'
corporate credit rating on the company.  The issue-level rating on
the company's debt remains at 'B' with a recovery rating of '3'.

The rating action reflects the recent deterioration in GFamsa's
sales and EBITDA generation beyond our expectations, amid a more
challenging market and a more cautious consumer environment.  It
also reflects a drop in the credit for consumption and a less
dynamism in the Mexican economy.  The further deterioration in
BAF's asset quality and reduction in deposits growth and personal
loans increases the risk that GFamsa's cash flow generation and
liquidity will weaken, as S&P believes bank deposits are a key
source of funding for the company's expansion program and working
capital needs, while personal loans correspond to about 30% of the
company's sales.  With this scenario, GFamsa could face further
deterioration in its credit metrics, with an EBITDA interest
coverage ratio of less than 1.2x, which could weaken its capital
structure, especially considering its significant short-term debt.
As of June 30, 2014, short term debt was Mexican peso (MXN) 3.5
billion, which corresponded to 45% of total debt.

OFFSHORE DRILLING: Fitch Affirms 'BB-' Issuer Default Ratings
Fitch Ratings has affirmed Offshore Drilling Holding, S.A.'s (ODH)
foreign and local currency Issuer Default Ratings (IDRs) at 'BB-'.
The Rating Outlook is Stable.  Fitch has affirmed company's USD950
million of senior secured notes due 2020 at 'BB'.

Key Ratings Drivers

ODH's ratings reflect the company's solid commercial relationship
with Petroleos Mexicanos SA (Pemex, IDR 'BBB+') as well as the
relatively stable cash flow generation resulting from its
contractual agreements. The ratings also reflect the nascent
nature of ultra-deep water exploration in Mexico as well as the
company's moderately high leverage, partial structural
subordination and contract roll-over risk. The company's expansion
plan is considered aggressive and adds to risk.

Solid Commercial Relationship with Strong Counterparty:
ODH's ratings reflect the company's, as well as its shareholder's,
strong commercial relationship with Pemex. ODH and its shareholder
provide off-shore drilling services, as well as other energy
related maritime services, to Pemex. ODH currently owns three
ultra-deep-waters sixth generation dynamic positioning drilling
semisubmersible rigs. The company charters its assets to three
operating affiliates that in turn lease the drilling rigs to
Pemex's exploration and production subsidiary at day rates ranging
from USD489 thousand to USD565 thousand. ODH is part of Grupo R, a
privately held conglomerate of companies that have been providing
drilling and oilfield services to Pemex for over 25 years.

Nascent UDW Exploration Phase in Mexico's Gulf Cost:
Although oil and gas production in Mexico has been concentrated
offshore with approximately 75% of production during recent years,
this has been mainly in shallow waters. Pemex has only recently
focused in deep water and Ultra Deep Water (UDW) exploration,
mainly given the need to incorporate new reserves to offset
declining production from matured fields. Pemex has drilled only a
limited number of deep-water wells in its operating history.
Development of possible reserves in this sector might be
challenging as Pemex has limited experience in deep water oil and
gas exploration. A shift back to only shallow and mid-waters
exploration at the expense of UDW exploration could negatively
impact demand for the UDW drilling rigs the company owns.

Energy Reform Could Support Demand: The passing of the energy
reform in Mexico in recent months is expected to generate
significant interest from international oil and gas companies and
increase exploration activity in the Mexican side of the Gulf of
Mexico (GoM). ODH stands to potentially benefit from this expected
increase in activity given the company's experience in the country
and to some extend could have a first mover advantage by having
readily available assets in place should Pemex opt not to renew
the existing contracts. The deep water market is one of particular
interest for the country to open to new entrants.

Moderately High Leverage:

ODH's leverage ratio for the last 12 months (LTM) ended June 30,
2014 improved to 4.3 times (x) from 5.2x as of the LTM June 2013.
This improvement in leverage was included in the initial rating
and resulted from a full year of operation of La Muralla IV, which
only reported nine months of operations during 2013 and Centenario
only operating an average efficiency of 37.8% during the 1st
quarter of 2013. ODH's EBITDA as of the LTM ended June 2014
amounted to approximately USD364 million.

Going forward, total leverage is expected to range between 4.0x
and 4.5x with the exception of years when the company adds
financial debt to fund acquisition without reporting a full year
of operational revenues for the new assets. ODH's total debt of
USD1.57 billion as of June 30, 2014 was composed of USD950 million
rated bonds due 2020 and the balance relates mostly to an
amortizable bank loan guaranteed by La Muralla IV. In the future,
the company expects to add approximately USD950 million of debt to
finance expansions, namely the acquisition of five jack-ups that
are expected to be delivered in 2015. The company is currently
analysing different funding alternatives for the new debt, which
could be issued under the same or similar conditions to those of
the existing bonds.

Partial Structural Subordination:
The company's senior secured notes are guaranteed by certain ODH's
restricted subsidiaries, including Rubicon Drilling Services and
Utileduci subsidiaries, which own the Centenario and Bicentenario
drilling rigs, respectively and have no debt. The notes benefit
from a 12 months interest reserve account. The notes are currently
structurally subordinated to approximately USD460 million of
project-finance like bank debt related to La Muralla IV, which
amortizes through 2018 and has a small balloon payment. Upon
repaying all of La Muralla IV related debt, this asset will also
guarantee the debt issuance together with ODH's other

Contracts Roll-over Risk and Adjustable Day Rates:
The company is exposed to contract renewal risk given that the
three UDW drilling rigs have contracts that expire before the
maturity of the notes. The rating incorporates the expectation
that Pemex will re-contract these drilling rigs shortly before the
contracts expire at average or marginally below average market day
rates for similar assets. As these UDW rigs are considered
important assets for exploration of new oil fields in Mexico. The
debt services reserve account mitigates contract roll-over risk as
it would allow ODH time to relocate the assets if required. The
contracts for Centenario and Bicentenario rigs have fixed day
rates for the first two years and are then adjusted annually with
average market rates for the remaining three years. La Muralla
contract, the third and last UDW drilling rig to enter commercial
operation, has a five-year contract with Pemex at fixed day rates
for the duration of the contract. The company's cash flow
stability and predictability will benefit if contracts were to be
renewed at fixed day rates for periods of five years or longer.

Aggressive Speculative Growth Strategy:
ODH's ratings incorporate the expectation that the company would
continue to add offshore drilling equipment without increasing its
leverage on a sustained basis. Currently, the company has
construction orders for five shallow waters drilling rigs, or
jack-ups, for which ODH is yet to sign contracts with Pemex. The
company expects to sign contracts with Pemex for this equipment
before the shipyard delivery. Although the company has been
operating this way in the past, this risk adds to cash flow
uncertainty and high carrying cost should Pemex not contract the
rigs and ODH is forced to find alternative markets for the

Rating Sensitivity

A negative rating action could be triggered by a combination of
the following factors: ODH's consolidated leverage increases in a
sustained basis to above 5.0x, contracts are not rolled over
within six months after expiration, and/or the company faces
delays of six months or greater contracting new equipment after it
is delivered.

A rating upgrade could be considered under a combination of the
following factors: ODH's leverage decreases below 3.5x in a
sustained basis, and/or the company contracts all its drilling
equipment under long-term contracts of no less than five years
under fixed day rates and with very limited to none out-clauses.

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.
