ANTIGUA & BARBUDA INVESTMENT: Gov't Urged to Go After Principals

The Daily Observer reports that a former shareholder in the
financially troubled Antigua & Barbuda Investment Bank (ABIB) is
urging government to "go after" the property acquired through
loans from the bank, without the necessary securities.

Businessman and investor George Ryan said Prime Minister Gaston
Browne should consider the measure in plans to stabilize the bank,
according to The Daily Observer.

"Mr. Minister and government of Antigua, please go after the
people's assets . . . .  take over those properties, hold them as
assets of the bank and dispose of them as soon as they can," Mr.
Ryan advised, the report notes.

Mr. Ryan joined the prime minister in strongly criticizing
shareholders, board members and managers for allowing the
perpetuation of poor financial decisions and self-enrichment
decisions, the report notes.

"Some of the shareholders have up to 20 or 30 pieces of heavy
equipment lying in their yard earning nothing. . . . they can't
pay back the bank the money," Mr. Ryan charged, the report relays.

In Parliament, Prime Minister Browne also blasted the heads of the
financial institution for specifically lending millions of dollars
in credit to Jolly Beach, an amount greater than the actual value
of the property, the report notes.

"Jolly Beach is theoretically valued at US$80 million, but in
reality, if you get EC$30 million for it you'd be very lucky,"
Prime Minister Browne charged, the report relays.  "Now, the irony
about it is that, that group (ABIB) has extended over US$50
million in credit . . . . so you understand the situation there,"
Prime Minister Browne added.

The report notes that Mr. Ryan said when he spoke out about the
irresponsible transaction of the bank, including the acquisition
of Jolly Beach; he was sacked as a shareholder.

Amid all the criticisms levelled at the management of ABIB,
Opposition Leader Baldwin Spencer, speaking in Parliament, warned
that residents could lose confidence in local banks, worsening the
situation, the report adds.

                            About ABI

Antigua and Barbuda Investment Bank, the flagship of the ABI
Financial Group, has been in operation for just over 21 years,
having opened on March 1, 1990, when it acquired the collapsed
Fidelity Trust Bank.

                           *     *     *

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
Dec. 15, 2011, Caribarena Antigua News reports that the Antigua
and Barbuda Minister of Finance, Economy, and Government
Administration Harold Lovell has revealed further details on the
bailout of the Antigua and Barbuda Investment Bank (ABIB) after
its near-collapse in July.

The government provided ABIB a $40 million bailout to prevent
panic that could have resulted in the bank's collapse, according
to Caribarena Antigua News.  Mr. Lovell revealed that the money
used for the bailout initiative came from loans the government
acquired from the local banking sector.  Mr. Lovell also clarified
that the money pumped into ABI Bank by the government was not
actually to pay off its own loan with the bank, contrary to

In early 2011, Eastern Caribbean Central Bank took over ABIB but
the money for the takeover came from the government, not the ECCB,
Caribarena Antigua News added.


PROVINCE OF CHACO: Moody's Raises Issuer & Debt Ratings to Caa2
Moody's Latin America Agente de Calificacion de Riesgo upgraded
the Province of Chaco's issuer and debt ratings to Caa2 from Caa3
in global scale local currency and to from in
Argentina's national scale, respectively. In the same rating
action, Moody's changed Chaco's outlook to negative from stable.

The upgrade of the Province of Chaco issuer ratings to Caa2 from
Caa3 mainly reflects the recording of continuous operating and
financing surpluses and declining debt levels. Chaco's gross
operating surplus averaged almost 11% in 2013 and 2014. The
province has relatively low debt levels equivalent to 27% of total
revenues as of December 31, 2014; down from almost 33% at the end
of the previous fiscal year.

The Province of Chaco, like other Caa2-rated provinces in
Argentina, has a relatively weak economic base and is highly
reliant on transfers from the government of Argentina (Caa1,

The debt ratings assigned to Chaco's Secured Bonds maturing in
2026 reflect the province's capacity and willingness to pay its
obligations. Moody's notes that these bonds have been performing
following their conversion to Argentinean pesos.

The negative outlook assigned reflects the country's weak and
volatile operating environment as well as the strong economic and
financial ties that exist between sub-sovereigns and the

Given the negative outlook on the issuer ratings, Moody's does not
expect upward pressures in the Province of Chaco's ratings in the
near to medium term. A downgrade in Argentina's bond ratings would
result in a downgrade of the ratings assigned. A sharp
deterioration in the province's metrics such as a rapid increase
in the debt to revenues ratio could exert downward pressure on the
ratings assigned.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Regional and
Local Governments published in January 2013.

YPF SOCIEDAD: Moody's Assigns Caa1 Global Foreign Currency Rating
Moody's Investors Service assigned a Caa1 global foreign currency
rating to YPF Sociedad Anonima's (YPF)'s proposed US$1.5 billion
in global notes. The outlook on the ratings is negative.

Since YPF is majority owned by the Argentine government, YPF's
Caa1 rating reflects the application of Moody's joint default
rating methodology for government-related issuers (GRIs). YPF's
Caa1 rating combines its underlying Baseline Credit Assessment
(BCA) of b3; the Caa1 local currency rating and negative outlook
of the Argentine government; and the rating agency's view of
moderate support from and high dependence on the sovereign.

YPF's underlying BCA reflects the company's exposure to Argentine
economic instability, including an unpredictable government policy
framework, and exposure to foreign currency convertibility and
transfer risk. While YPF has maintained its strong financial track
record since coming under government control in April 2012, this
track record still remains limited. In addition, the BCA is
supported by the company's status as the largest industrial
corporation and energy company in Argentina and is also based on
the company's low leverage and high levels of retained cash flow
when compared with many of its peers. YPF benefits from
upstream/downstream integration and other business
diversification, and sizeable oil and gas reserves, including
large shale resources in the longer-term.

The government of Argentina's ability to provide support to YPF is
measured by its Caa1 local currency rating and negative outlook
but Moody's support assumptions are constrained by the low policy
transparency and predictability of the Argentine government.
Moody's consider the government's willingness to support YPF as
moderate, which is based on YPF's majority government ownership
and control, as well as the importance of YPF to the Argentine
economy, with a dominant market position in the energy sector.
While YPF is expected to account for only a small part of the
government's revenue base, the high default dependence reflects
the high correlation between YPF's credit profile and Argentine
economic trends. YPF derives the majority of its revenues
domestically; also, the company and the government also both share
common exposure foreign exchange rate risk.

YPF's negative rating outlook is based on the negative outlook on
the Argentine government. YPF and the government's ratings are
closely linked since YPF is a government-related issuer and also
due to the negative impact of the government's involvement in the
energy sector. The negative outlook on the sovereign rating is
tied to concerns about the government's haphazard policies, poor
transparency and the quality and reliability of its official data
reporting, as well as the sovereign's willingness to pay its debt

YPF's ratings could be downgraded if it is unable to maintain
sufficient liquidity and access to foreign currency in order to
meet its debt service obligations. The ratings could also be
downgraded if the government of Argentina's Caa1 rating were to be

There is limited upside for YPF's ratings over the near-term
though continued growth in oil production while maintaining strong
margins and low leverage could result in positive pressure on the
BCA. Over the longer term, an improvement in Argentina's Caa1
rating and continued demonstration of a strong financial track
record could result in a ratings upgrade.

The principal methodology used in this rating was Global
Integrated Oil & Gas Industry published in April 2014. Other
methodologies used include the Government-Related Issuers
methodology published in October 2014.

YPF is an Argentine based integrated energy company with
operations concentrated in the exploration, development and
production of crude oil, natural gas and liquefied petroleum gas,
and downstream operations engaged in refining, chemicals
production, retail marketing, transportation and distribution of
oil and petroleum products. The company is 51% owned by the
Argentine government and had revenues of USD 17.6 billion and
total assets of USD 26 billion in 2014.


ENEVA SA: Some Creditors Pushing for Debt-for-Equity Deal
Rogerio Jelmayer at The Wall Street Journal reports that some
major creditors of Brazilian power company Eneva SA are pushing
for a $791-million debt-for-equity swap in the troubled company
once owned by failed tycoon Eike Batista, with the aim of bringing
the firm out of bankruptcy protection, according to people
familiar with the proposal.

The debt-for-equity deal, valued at about BRL2.4 billion, is part
of a BRL3 billion capital plan to be discussed at a creditors
assembly scheduled for April 30. Large creditors, mainly banks,
are already eyeing an eventual sale of their stakes in the firm,
the people said, according to The Wall Street Journal.

If the plan is approved, Brazilian bank BTG Pactual will likely
emerge as the utility's main shareholder, with a 40% stake, the
report notes.  Two other lenders, Itau BBA and Citibank, will also
become relevant shareholders, the report relates.

Germany's E. ON. SE, which currently holds a 43% interest in the
company, will see its stake diluted to around 10% to 20%, while
Mr. Batista's interest will drop to around 5% of the restructured
company from around 20% currently, one of the people said, the
report relays.

The report relays that a spokeswoman for E.ON confirmed that
E.ON's stake in Eneva would shrink if the proposed recovery plan
is approved, but couldn't provide exact figures.

Formerly known as MPX Energia SA, the company was founded in 2001
by Mr. Batista and is another casualty of his crumbled industrial
empire, the report notes.  The Brazilian businessman sold a
majority stake in the utility to E. ON SE in 2013, but maintained
co-control of Eneva, a power generation and trading company, with
businesses in natural gas exploration and production, the report

Eneva filed for bankruptcy protection last December for its
holding company Eneva S.A, and Eneva Participacoes units, after
the firm's lenders refused to renew an accord to refinance its
debt, the report recalls.  Seven thermal electricity plants
operated by Eneva weren't included in the BRL2.4 billion petition,
the report says.

Eneva's total debt, including project finance to some power
plants, is around BRL5 billion, according to the company's 2014
financial results, the report notes.

The company owes around:

   -- BRL1 billion to BTG Pactual;
   -- BRL707 million to Banco Itau BBA, the investment arm of Itau
      Unibanco; and

   -- BRL387.9 million to Citibank.

The report says that while the creditors will likely soon become
shareholders in Eneva SA, some are already making plans to put
their stakes up for sale, according to a person familiar with the
talks who didn't unveil a potential price for the sale nor the
potential buyers.

They "just want to save the company from bankruptcy," the person
said, the report notes.

Eneva SA is the fourth company founded by Mr. Batista to seek
bankruptcy protection, including his flagship oil firm, Oleo e Gas
Participacoes, whose failure sunk his other holdings, the report

Once Brazil's richest man, Mr. Batista has been charged with
insider trading and other financial crimes related to the
meltdown. His criminal trial in a Rio de Janeiro court was halted
in March after the judge in charge of the case was accused of
alleged wrongdoing, the report discloses.  A new judge has been
appointed, but it could take months for proceedings to resume, the
report says.

Mr. Batista has previously denied the accusations against him, the
report adds.

                          About Eneva SA

Eneva SA operates several thermal power plants in Brazil with a
total installed capacity of 2.9 GW.  The company also has
interests in gas exploration fields in the country.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
Dec. 12, 2014, Juan Pablo Spinetto at Bloomberg News reported that
Eneva Participacoes SA (Eneva SA), the Brazilian utility
controlled by EON SE (EOAN) and Eike Batista, filed for bankruptcy
protection, becoming the fourth venture founded by the former
billionaire to seek creditor protection in just more than a year.

Eneva, which Batista set up as MPX Energia SA in 2001, filed the
request to a court in the state of Rio de Janeiro, where the
company is based, it said in a statement obtained by Bloomberg
News.  The petition, called a judicial recovery in Brazil, comes
after failure to renew a deal between the company and its lenders
to suspend debt payments, Eneva SA said, according to the report.

SCHAHIN II FINANCE: S&P Lowers Rating to 'CC' & Puts on Watch Neg.
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its rating on Schahin
II Finance Company (SPV) Limited's (Schahin II's) notes to 'CC'
from 'B+' and placed the rating on CreditWatch with negative

The downgrade reflects S&P's view of an imminent default on
Schahin II's notes, in light of Black Oil Drilling LLC's
recuperacao judicial, similar to Chapter 11 proceedings.

On April 17, 2015, various Schahin group member companies
requested recuperacao judicial under Brazilian law in the Sao
Paulo Bankruptcy and Judicial Reorganization Court.  The request
included Black Oil Drilling LLC, a limited liability company
organized under the laws of Delaware that is the owner of all of
the outstanding equity interests in Dleif Drilling LLC (not rated,
and the owner of the Sertao drillship).

The filing constitutes an event of default under the indenture of
the notes.  The occurrence of such event of default is an operator
replacement event and a collateral disposition event under the
definition of the notes terms.


The CreditWatch placement reflects S&P's opinion that it could
further lower the rating in the next few days, in a scenario of
the notes' early amortization.

DOMINICAN REPUBLIC: Business Leaders Urge Resumption of Wage Talks

Dominican Today reports that National Young Business Leaders
Association (ANJE) President Biviana Riveiro on Thursday, April
23, said she's confident they'll find a way for management and
labor to resume the talks for a wage increase, one day after union
leaders warned of a general strike.

"We are confident that this disruption, perhaps abruptly,
dialogue, will find a way to resume the dialogue," Ms. Riveiro
said one day after union leaders walked out of the talks at the
Labor Ministry, on claims employers failed to make a proposal on
labor's demand for a 30% increase to the minimum wage.

Meanwhile Dialogue Coordinator Monsignor Agripino Nunez said he
expects the parties to exercise good judgment and reach an
agreement, the report notes.  "I hope they have the good sense to
look for a way to compromise and reach an agreement.  Management
should go a little further and hopefully reasonable way could be
found between government and business leaders," the report quoted
Mr. Nunez as saying.

Both Ms. Riveiro and Mr. Nunez agree that the talks must resume
and come to some agreement, the report notes.

April 22's National Wage Committee meeting, where a wage increase
was to be discussed, ended abruptly when union leaders Rafael
Abreu and Jacobo Ramos walked out, the report adds.

FIRSTBANK PUERTO: S&P Keeps 'B+' Ratings on Watch Negative
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that its ratings on four
Puerto Rico-based regional banks will remain on CreditWatch with
negative implications, following the downgrade of Puerto Rico's
general obligation (GO) debt to 'CCC+' from 'B' and the lowering
of our long-term issuer credit rating on the Government
Development Bank of Puerto Rico (GDB) to 'CCC' from 'B-'.  S&P
placed the four regional banks on CreditWatch with negative
implications on Feb. 13, 2015.

"In our view, the Commonwealth's market access prospects have
further weakened, and its ability to meet its financial
commitments increasingly depends upon favorable business,
financial, and economic developments, which we do not anticipate.
In resolving our CreditWatch listings, we will review the
persistently weak local economy and the downgrades of Puerto
Rico's GO debt and GDB, and how these developments could affect
our credit assessments of these four banks.  We expect to resolve
our CreditWatch placements on these four banks within 90 days,"
S&P said.

GOVERNMENT DEVELOPMENT: S&P Lowers ICR to 'CCC'; Outlook Negative
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it lowered its long-term
issuer credit rating on the Government Development Bank for Puerto
Rico (GDB) to 'CCC' from 'B-'.  In addition, S&P affirmed its 'C'
short-term issuer credit rating on GDB.  S&P also lowered its
liquidity assessment on GDB to "very weak" from "weak," as S&P's
bank criteria describe these terms.  The rating outlook is

The downgrade to 'CCC' reflects S&P's view that GDB is vulnerable
and at risk of default, as defined under S&P's criteria, over the
next 12 months.  In S&P's view, GDB depends on favorable business,
financial, and economic developments -- which S&P does not
anticipate -- to meet its financial commitments.  S&P believes GDB
may not be able to meet its debt maturities over the next year --
and could exhaust remaining liquidity within the next three months
-- unless it or the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico is able to issue
new debt. S&P believes that the current fiscal situation of the
Commonwealth and certain public corporations, including
uncertainty about the implementation of its proposed value-added
tax reform, will continue to weigh on the Commonwealth's ability
to access the debt markets at reasonable rates.

"The rating outlook is negative and reflects our view that the
risk of default, as defined under our criteria, over the next 12
months has increased significantly," said Standard & Poor's credit
analyst Sunsierre Newsome.

If GDB is unable to raise sufficient funding to meet debt
maturities or other needs of the Commonwealth over the next 12
months, S&P could again lower its ratings on GDB.  S&P could also
lower its ratings on GDB if it downgrades the Commonwealth's
general obligation debt further.  Alternatively, S&P could revise
the outlook to positive if GDB is successful in accessing the
capital markets to raise capital sufficient to meet near-term
liquidity needs.  However, an upgrade would be contingent upon GDB
raising sufficient capital to meet longer-term liquidity needs as
well as a significant improvement in the economic conditions in
Puerto Rico.

PUERTO RICO: S&P Lowers General Obligation Rating to 'CCC+'
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services has lowered its general
obligation (GO) rating on the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico to
'CCC+' from 'B'.  At the same time, Standard & Poor's has placed
the GO rating on CreditWatch with negative implications.

In addition, Standard & Poor's has lowered its ratings on:

   -- Puerto Rico Sales Tax Financing Corp.'s (COFINA) first-lien
      sales tax bonds to 'CCC+' from 'B' and COFINA's second-lien
      sales tax bonds to 'CCC+' from 'B';

   -- Puerto Rico Municipal Finance Agency's, the Puerto Rico
      Employees Retirement System's, and the commonwealth's
      general fund-supported appropriation and moral obligation
      bonds to 'CCC+' from 'B';

   -- Puerto Rico Infrastructure Financing Authority's (rum tax)
      and the Puerto Rico Convention Center District Authority's
      (hotel tax) debt to 'CCC+' from 'B'; and

   -- Puerto Rico Highway and Transportation Authority's rated
      debt (HTA) to 'CCC+' from 'B'.

These bonds have also been placed on CreditWatch with negative

S&P bases the downgrade of Puerto Rico's tax-supported debt on
S&P's view that the commonwealth's market access prospects have
further weakened and Puerto Rico's ability to meet its financial
commitments is increasingly tied to the business, financial, and
economic conditions on the island.  Absent improvement in those
conditions, S&P believes debt and other financial commitments will
be unsustainable.

"Our placement of the ratings on CreditWatch negative reflects our
view that the commonwealth's current lack of consensus on key
elements of the fiscal 2016 budget could exacerbate liquidity and
fiscal pressure.  We expect to resolve the CreditWatch within
three months when enactment of a budget will provide additional
information allowing us to evaluate overall liquidity.  We believe
enactment of a credible balanced budget by the start of the new
fiscal year (July 1) could be an important element in Puerto Rico
regaining external market access.  Should passage of a fiscal 2016
budget become significantly delayed, or the budget is enacted with
significant structural flaws, we could lower the rating to 'CCC'
or lower.  Alternatively, if timely budget adoption translates
into stabilized liquidity, we could remove the ratings from
CreditWatch and affirm the 'CCC+' ratings," S&P said.

Recent developments highlight what S&P sees as liquidity risk for
the commonwealth from diminished external market access.  The
board of the Puerto Rico Government Development Bank (GDB)
recently sent a letter to the Governor and state legislators
indicating increasingly remote prospects for selling a proposed
refinancing of a $2.2 billion Highway and Transportation Authority
loan from GDB with a larger $2.95 billion external bond issue
backed by petroleum taxes.  The purpose of the refinancing would
be to improve GDB liquidity.

The GDB board cited liquidity problems that could occur as early
as the start of fiscal 2016 unless legislators enact a budget and
address tax reform.  S&P believes the existence of such a letter
indicates liquidity stress.

In S&P's view, it is unclear how the GDB's efforts to attract a
nontraditional base of debt investors for the $2.95 billion
external bond issue are affecting the commonwealth's budget and
fiscal policy negotiations.

It is S&P's opinion that even if the proposed value-added tax
(VAT) were enacted by the legislature without delay, without
external financing, liquidity may still fall below thresholds
necessary to maintain operations and fund financial commitments.
Further underscoring liquidity pressure is legislation introduced
April 8 (P. de la C. 2406), which includes new restrictions on
depositors in order to preserve GDB liquidity.

Introduction of the executive budget proposal for fiscal 2016 has
been delayed as the legislature debates the administration's
proposal to implement a new 16% VAT, whose level may be reduced
after legislative deliberations.  S&P believes that imposition of
a new VAT is subject to implementation risks, whose uncertainties
might affect future budget performance and the willingness of
investors to extend future credit, and which is incorporated into
S&P's CreditWatch designation.

S&P also believes budget pressures are exacerbated by current weak
economic trends and high debt levels, factors likely to persist in
the long term.  Imposition of a large VAT may increase overall tax
revenue, but have negative short-term economic implications.

"As a result of what we believe is increasingly constrained
capital market access, we have used an override factor within our
state rating methodology to limit our GO rating on Puerto Rico to
'CCC+'.  We are now using our 'CCC' criteria, which provides
clarity for assigning ratings within the 'CCC' and 'CC'
categories.  Under our 'CCC' criteria, the degree of financial
stress and the time frame for anticipated default are primary
factors in our assessment of issuers rated within the 'CCC' and
'CC' categories.  Although we believe that passage of a
structurally balanced budget by July 1 may improve the odds of
accessing the private debt markets to improve liquidity, we
believe that substantial doubt exists as to whether an external
debt sale of sufficient size may be accomplished by the end of
fiscal 2015, or later in fiscal 2016, when we believe substantial
seasonal cash flow financing will be needed.  At present, we
believe Puerto Rico has very limited or no external debt market
access in either the public or private external debt markets,
including investment from private high-risk investors who have
provided cash flow financing during the current fiscal year.  Our
downgrade reflects our criteria override assessment of increased
capital market access risk, combined with near-term liquidity
pressures.  We believe this could lead to a government shutdown
without access to external debt markets," S&P said.

"Although HTA, COFINA, rum, and hotel tax-secured debt appear to
have adequate pledged revenues on a strict legal coverage basis,
we are concerned that these revenue streams may not be adequately
separated from the commonwealth's credit quality in the event of
severe general fund credit or liquidity stress caused by the lack
of debt market access.

PUERTO RICO ELECTRIC: S&P Cuts Rating on Power Rev. Bonds to CCC-
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services has lowered its rating on
Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority's (PREPA) power revenue bonds
to 'CCC-' from 'CCC'.  The rating remains on CreditWatch with
negative implications.

The downgrade reflects S&P's view of:

   -- Repeated draws on the debt service reserve fund and
      uncertainty regarding any future draws that could result in
      its depletion;

   -- A structural imbalance between revenues and expenses without
      a pathway to meeting debt service obligations if and when
      the debt service reserve is depleted;

   -- S&P's concern about the authority's access to capital
      markets; and

   -- The uncertainty whether money on deposit with the Government
      Development Bank (GDB) could be diverted from PREPA.

"As a result, we believe a default, distressed exchange, or
redemption appears to be inevitable within six months, absent
unexpected significantly favorable changes in the authority's
circumstances," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Jeffrey

"On April 1, 2015, PREPA used $8.8 million from its debt service
reserve to help make a quarterly bond payment, the third such
draw.  In July and October 2014, the authority withdrew $41.6
million and $8.8 million, respectively, from the reserve.  In our
opinion, the draws suggest that despite falling oil prices, the
authority has a continuing structural imbalance between revenues
and expenses.  We also believe Puerto Rico has very limited access
to either the public or private debt markets.  PREPA's next
scheduled debt service payment totals $400 million and is due July
1.  Legislation enacted in 2014 requires PREPA to deposit with the
GDB certain non-operating funds, including construction funds and
the debt service reserve, which currently has $236 million on
deposit. It is unclear whether the government could divert this
money," S&P said.

S&P expects to resolve the CreditWatch placement in the next three
months after it has evaluated PREPA's plans and the actions it
will take to resolve the imbalance between revenues, expenses, and
debt service.  S&P will lower the rating if the authority
restructures the debt by extending maturity dates.

TRINIDAD & TOBAGO: Lack of US Currency Continues to Affect Firms
Curtis Rampersad at Trinidad Express reports that a number of
sectors of the business community in Trinidad and Tobago are
saying the unavailability of United States currency in the country
continues to affect their operations because less than half of
their demands for foreign exchange is being met on a monthly

These were some of the findings of a survey of members of the
Trinidad and Tobago Chamber of Commerce conducted by the business
group for the first quarter of 2015, according to Trinidad

The report relates that the chamber's Trade and Business
Development Unit in an e-mail analysis earlier noted: "Whil[le]
over the past few years, the business community of Trinidad and
Tobago has been experiencing increased difficulty in accessing
adequate supplies of foreign currency, this impediment to business
operations has been exacerbated since the beginning of 2014.

"This environment has created major problems for local businesses
resulting inter alia in major delays in the completion of
contracts, loss of business and the development of adverse
relationships with foreign suppliers," the e-mail added.

The report notes that for the first quarter of 2015, respondents
from various sectors of the business community (which include
financial, shipping, manufacturing, construction, food and
hospitality, distribution, security and consulting) expressed that
the unavailability of foreign currency has greatly affected their
businesses making it difficult to operate, compete and expand, the
chamber said.

"Ninety per cent of respondents to our Forex Survey need US
currency to operate their business and 75 per cent indicated that
the required currency is also more difficult to obtain than
before.  It is important to acknowledge that the foreign currency
problem in Trinidad and Tobago still needs to be adequately
addressed," the e-mail said.

The report discloses that 52% per cent of the respondents
indicated that they require more than US$250,000 monthly to
operate their business efficiently and meet other business
requirements.  It is important to note that 54 per cent of
respondents indicated that less than half of this demand is being
satisfied monthly, the report relays.

Long waiting times for foreign currency are being experienced,
with 42% stating that they wait more than one month, the report

Most businesses in the survey (56%) also admitted that in the hope
of improving their chances of receiving the required currency,
they still split their requests amongst several banks. However,
this has not greatly improved their position, the chamber's unit
stated, according to the report.

In its latest injection earlier this month, the Central Bank sold
US$60 million to the financial system to ease demand from
customers, the report discloses.

Trade Minister Vasant Bharath told the Trinidad and Tobago
Manufacturers' Association's (TTMA) annual meeting at the Hilton
Trinidad, St Ann's there was US$5 billion sitting in customers'
bank accounts which was being "saved" and not put back into the
economy, the report adds.

TRINIDAD & TOBAGO: Economy Maybe Shrunk, RBC Economist Says
Sean Douglas at Trinidad and Tobago Newsday reports that RBC
Economist Marla Dukharan calculated a weaker performance of the
Trinidad and Tobago economy in this fiscal year that the forecasts
of both the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and Standard and
Poor's (S&P), she told the "Second Annual Pre-Budget Forum."

The event at the University of the West Indies (UWI), St
Augustine, was held by the UWI Alumni Association, the
Professional Centre and UWI.

Ms. Dukharan said the S&P is predicting 2.0 percent growth, and
the IMF predicting 1.5 percent growth this year, according to
Trinidad and Tobago Newsday.

Noting that last year's growth was just 0.7 percent when the
global oil-price was US$90 per barrel (compared to a current
figure of about US$55), Ms. Dukharan predicted this year's growth
would be much less than the forecasts of the IMF and S&P, and
indeed could likely be zero or even negative growth (that is, a
shrinkage of the economy), the report notes.

The report relates that overall from 2009 to present, the Trinidad
& Tobago economy has slightly shrunk by a negative growth of 0.3

The report notes that Ms. Dukharan said that despite some
improvements in the supply of data by the Central Statistical
Office (CSO), S&P has bemoaned that there are still shortages in
the CSO's economic data.

The report discloses that Ms. Dukharan said some analysts think
the CSO data underestimates the country's economic growth,
especially in the non-energy sector.  Ms. Dukharan singled out
some alternative indicators of economic performance, the report
notes.  She said some 18,000 cars are imported annually, cement
sales are healthy and there is much more growth in other regions
outside of Port-of-Spain, the report relates.

Ms. Dukharan said the RBC is predicting a global rise in the Brent
crude oil-price from US$60 this year to US$70 next year to a long-
term value of US$90, the report relays.

The report notes that the corresponding price of WTI oil (near
which price TT oil is sold) to be roughly six dollars lower than
Brent in each case.  Likewise, the price of natural gas on the US
market -- the Henry Hub price -- should go from US$2.90 per mmBTU
this year to US$3.45 next year to $4.50 in the long-term, she said
citing the RBC forecasts, the report discloses.

The TT energy sector provides 43 percent of TT's GDP and 35
percent of fiscal revenues (worth $20 billion), she said, and
further was the platform supporting the non-energy sector, the
report notes.

The report notes that Ms. Dukharan said while he intended fiscal
deficit to be 2.3 percent of GDP for this fiscal year, if State
expenditure and world oil/gas prices stay as they are, the deficit
will in fact now likely be 6.7 percent of GDP, or $11.7 billion.
By contrast, the deficit for fiscal 2009 was just $206 million,
she noted.

Contrasting a growing deficit (since 2009 to present) to the 0.3
percent economic shrinkage over that period, Ms. Dukharan declared
that (increased/excessive) governmental spending has not led to an
increase in economic growth, the report relays.

"My prediction is that the economy could contract this year, based
on lower revenues from the oil and gas sector," the report quoted
Ms. Dukharan as saying.

In the question session, UWI economics lecturer, Dr. Daren Conrad,
bemoaned that Trinidad & Tobago is still reliant on its energy
sector (for revenue) and has too many transfers and subsidies (for
expenditure). Efforts at economic diversification have been
stymied by complacency, he said, and persons need to be weaned off
of State subsidies, the report discloses.  "The average household
gets $5,000 worth of subsidies, at a cost to the Government," said
Mr. Conrad.  "18,000 cars are imported and we drive from here to
there because gasoline is cheap," the report quoted Mr. Conrad as

Admitting that other nations whose governments had tried to cut
their fuel subsidies had reacted by public rioting, he nonetheless
urged that such a reduction be introduced gradually, along with
encouraging a change in the citizenry's mind- set.

Suggesting that low-wages could lead workers to be frustrated and
be vulnerable to the lure of committing crime, Conrad urged that a
solution is to make a marginal increase in people's quality of
life such that their marginal benefit of going into crime will
decrease, especially if the State can increase the probability of
offenders being caught and punished.

BORETS INTERNATIONAL: Moody's Alters Outlook on B1 CFR to Stable
Moody's Investors Service changed to stable from positive the
outlook on the B1 corporate family rating and B1-PD probability of
default rating of Borets International Ltd, and on the B1 senior
unsecured rating of the notes issued by Borets Finance Limited, a
wholly owned subsidiary of Borets. At the same time, Moody's has
affirmed all ratings.

The rating action reflects increasing concerns over Borets'
exposure to foreign currency risks as a result of the sharp rouble
devaluation since 4Q 2014 and the continued volatility this year.
The currency mismatch between Borets' revenues, 70% of which are
in roubles, and its US dollar debt will likely result in a
deterioration of the company's leverage metrics, with adjusted
debt/EBITDA potentially exceeding 4.0x in 2015.

Moody's also cautions that the drop in oil prices, and the
challenging macroeconomic and political environment in Russia,
could affect the company's operating and financial results in
2015. In particular, Moody's sees risk that oil companies could
revise their investment programmes, further tightening pricing and
payment terms of contracts with suppliers.

At the same time, Borets' ratings continue to reflect its
consistent focus on positive free cash flow generation,
historically healthy cash balances, and moderate debt service
requirements until the maturity of the bond in 2018. These
positives to some extent mitigate the weaker-than-expected
leverage metrics.

Moody's also expects that Borets will be able to maintain an
adequate operating performance, supported by its (1) leading
position in the niche electric submersible pumps (ESP) market with
long-standing customer relationships; (2) favourable industry
fundamentals, supported by a globally increasing need for oil
recovery enhancement technologies; and (3) historically proven
resistance to oil price volatility, underpinned by its large
installed base and high portion of revenues derived from the
replacement and servicing of existing ESPs.

Given Borets' high level of vertical integration with all key
production facilities located in Russia, the rouble devaluation
should further reinforce its already competitive cost position.
The company should also be able to maintain profitability at
healthy levels, with its adjusted EBITDA margin remaining above
17% in 2015. This, together with the continuous development of its
international operations, should allow the company to resume
deleveraging in line with Moody's initial expectations of adjusted
debt/EBITDA at around 3.5x in 2016.

Moody's also notes that Borets has upheld its sound corporate
governance standards following the buyback of shares held by
Weatherford International Ltd. (Bermuda) (Baa3, negative) in
September 2013, and the subsequent acquisition by the European
Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD, Aaa stable) and
International Finance Corporation (IFC, Aaa stable) of 5% and 3%
stakes in the company respectively, with comfortable protection of
creditors and minority rights.

Borets' B1 rating remains constrained by (1) its small scale and
focus on a single product line (ESP); (2) limited (albeit
gradually increasing) geographic and customer diversification
relative to global peers; and (3) competition from larger-scale
global players in the higher-end segment and from Russian and
Chinese producers in the lower-end segment.

The stable outlook on the ratings reflects Moody's expectation
that Borets will deliver on its operating targets, including
sustainable growth of its international business, while
maintaining robust cash flow generation and a strong liquidity
profile. These factors should compensate for a potential temporary
deterioration in leverage metrics in 2015 as a result of the sharp
rouble devaluation, bringing metrics back to within the guidance
by 2016. Moody's also expects that the company will continue to
adhere to its sound corporate governance standards.

Moody's would consider upgrading Borets' ratings if the company
continues to (1) adhere to sound corporate governance standards;
and (2) demonstrate robust operational performance, further
increasing the scale of its operations and geographical
diversification. In addition, to consider a rating upgrade,
Moody's would expect Borets to reduce its leverage (measured as
adjusted debt/EBITDA) comfortably below 3.5x on a gross basis or
3.0x on a net basis, while maintaining a solid liquidity profile
and positive free cash flow generation. The consideration of net
leverage reflects that cash is expected to accumulate over time in
view of the bullet debt structure and positive free cash-flow.

Downward rating pressure could emerge in case of (1) material
debt-financed acquisitions or capital investments; (2) aggressive
shareholder distributions; or (3) a material deterioration in
Borets' competitive position, with leverage, as measured by
adjusted debt/EBITDA, rising above 4.0x on a sustained basis.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Global
Oilfield Services Industry Rating Methodology published in
December 2014. Other methodologies used include Loss Given Default
for Speculative-Grade Non-Financial Companies in the U.S., Canada
and EMEA published in June 2009.

Borets International Limited is a leading vertically integrated
manufacturer of artificial lift products for the oil sector,
specialising in the design and manufacture of electric submersible
pumps (ESP) and related products and provision of related
services. In 2014, Borets generated $720 million in sales and $133
million of adjusted EBITDA and reported $695 million in assets.

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.
