BANCO FIBRA: Moody's Lowers Deposit Ratings to B3; Outlook Neg.
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has downgraded Banco Fibra S.A.'s
baseline credit assessment (BCA) to b3 from b1; long-term global
local and foreign currency deposit ratings to B3 from B1; the
long-term foreign-currency senior unsecured debt rating to B3 from
B1; the senior unsecured medium term note (MTN) program (foreign
currency) rating to (P)B3 from (P)B1; the long-term foreign-
currency subordinated debt rating to Caa1 from B2; the long-term
Brazilian national scale deposit rating to B1.br from Baa2.br; and
the short-term Brazilian national scale deposit rating to BR-4
from BR-2.  The outlook for its ratings remains negative.

These ratings of Banco Fibra S.A. were downgraded:

   -- Long-term global local-currency deposit ratings to B3 from
      B1; negative outlook
   -- Long-term foreign-currency deposit rating to B3 from B1;
      negative outlook
   -- Long-term foreign-currency senior unsecured debt rating to
      B3 from B1; negative outlook
   -- Senior unsecured MTN program (foreign currency) rating to
      (P)B3 from (P)B1
   -- Long-term foreign-currency subordinated debt rating to Caa1
      from B2
   -- Long-term Brazilian national scale deposit rating to B1.br
      from Baa2.br
   -- Short-term Brazilian national scale deposit rating to BR-4
      from BR-2

These ratings and (CR) assessment were affirmed:

   -- Short-term global local-currency deposit ratings of Not
      Prime
   -- Short-term foreign-currency deposit rating of Not Prime
   -- Short-term MTN program (foreign currency) rating of (P) Not
      Prime
   -- Short-term counterparty risk (CR) assessment of Not
      Prime(cr)

These assessments were downgraded:

   -- Baseline credit assessment to b3 from b1
   -- Adjusted baseline credit assessment to b3 from b1
   -- Long-term counterparty risk (CR) assessment to B2(cr) from
      Ba3(cr)

RATINGS RATIONALE

Fibra's b3 BCA reflects the continuity of high net losses.  In the
first half of 2015, the bank incurred negative results totaling
BRL195 million, equivalent to 6.3% of its tangible banking assets.
The losses are mainly attributed to the high levels of loan loss
provisions, as well as the fact that the bank lacks sufficient
scale to cover its operating expenses.

In the context of adverse economic environment, Fibra's ability to
achieve the break even in the next 12 to 18 months is very
unlikely given the ongoing weight from loan loss provisions as
well as the bank's limited capacity to increase the size of its
balance sheet while maintaining an adequate risk profile.

The negative asset risk pressures arising from Fibra's non-core
running off legacy loans have steadily decreased in the past year.
In the first half of 2015, these loans represented 12.5% of the
bank's total loans, down from 35% in the prior year.  However, the
bank has continued to post mounting problem loans in its core
corporate loan book.  Moody's believes that this exerts additional
pressure to asset risk and puts Fibra's ability to successfully
execute its strategic realignment plan at risk.

Recurring net losses have consistently reduced Fibra's
capitalization, which however, has been only partially offset by
recurring capital injections.  As a result, the tangible common
equity measured as a percentage of risk-weighted assets fell to
just 2.8%, down from 6.0% in December 2014.  In the absence of
further capital injections, and assuming credit losses do not
abate, Fibra's capitalization will likely be further consumed by
negative results over the next 12 to 18 months.

In terms of liquidity, Fibra has been employing efforts to improve
its funding profile by accessing granular deposits and extending
its funding duration.  The bank also maintains an adequate amount
of liquid resources, but will have to accumulate additional cash
in advance of its upcoming USD150 million cross border bond
maturity, in April 2016.  In light of current adverse market
conditions, a refinancing of the debt may be challenging.

The B3 deposit and senior unsecured debt ratings are in line with
Fibra's b3 BCA, and do not benefit from government support uplift
because of the bank's very modest market share of domestic
deposits.

NEGATIVE OUTLOOK MAINTAINED

The negative outlook incorporates the limited capacity for Fibra
to deliver a profitability turnaround in the next 12 to 18 months
and the likelihood that the bank will, therefore, incur in further
capital pressures.  The negative outlook also captures the risk
that Fibra's weakening financial flexibility will affect its
liquidity position and ability to attract deposits in light of a
predominantly market-based funding.

WHAT COULD MAKE THE RATING GO DOWN

Fibra's BCA and ratings would face downward pressure should the
bank be unable to reduce net losses and demonstrate the
sustainability of its current business model.  The rating would
also be negatively weighted by a significant capital deterioration
and failure of the bank to appropriately manage its liquidity.

WHAT COULD MAKE THE RATING GO UP

Earlier-than-expected capacity to generate positive results and
stabilization of Fibra's capital ratios at appropriate levels
would place positive pressures on its BCA and ratings.

LAST RATING ACTION

The last rating action on Banco Fibra S.A. was on June 12, 2015,
when Moody's affirmed the bank's BCA of b1; the long-term local
and foreign currency deposit ratings of B1; the long-term foreign-
currency senior unsecured debt rating of B1; the foreign-currency
senior unsecured debt MTN program rating of (P)B1; the long-term
foreign currency subordinate debt rating of B2; the local and
foreign-currency short-term ratings of Not Prime; the long-term
Brazilian national scale deposit rating of Baa2.br; short-term
Brazilian national scale deposit rating of BR-2.  At the same
time, the outlook on its ratings was changed to negative from
stable.

Moody's National Scale Credit Ratings (NSRs) are intended as
relative measures of creditworthiness among debt issues and
issuers within a country, enabling market participants to better
differentiate relative risks.  NSRs differ from Moody's global
scale credit ratings in that they are not globally comparable with
the full universe of Moody's rated entities, but only with NSRs
for other rated debt issues and issuers within the same country.
NSRs are designated by a ".nn" country modifier signifying the
relevant country, as in ".za" for South Africa.

Banco Fibra S.A. is headquartered in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and had
total consolidated assets of BRL6.2 billion (USD2.0 billion) and
shareholders' equity of BRL848 million (USD273 million), as of
June 30, 2015.


INVESTIMENTOS E PARTICIPACOES: Fitch Affirms 'BB-' IDRs
-------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed Investimentos e Participacoes em
Infraestrutura S.A. 0 Invepar's (Invepar) foreign- and local-
currency Issuer Default Ratings (IDRs) at 'BB-' and Long-term
National Scale rating at 'A(bra)'. The Rating Outlook is Stable.

The ratings remain based on Invepar's strong portfolio of
diversified assets in low-risk industries within Brazil's
transportation infrastructure sector. These businesses enjoy
strong long-term fundamentals, including higher resilience than
industry peers during economic downturns, moderate- to high-
profitability, and consequently, positive trends in dividend
distribution as Invepar's subsidiaries mature.

The ratings also take into consideration that Invepar will
continue to be supported by its shareholders, which reduces the
holding company's (holdco) current pressure related to short-term
debt refinancing and equity requirements for the next two years.
The proven financial support from its main shareholders supports
this assumption, with about BRL3.2 billion in support since 2009.
This explicit financial support is a key element of Invepar's
capital structure, while the company receives an incipient amount
of dividends at least for the next three years. The ratings are
constrained by the company's highly leveraged capital structure at
the holdco level and, on a consolidated basis, mostly through
project finance debt at the operating project subsidiaries.

KEY RATING DRIVERS

HoldCo Debt High; Cash Flow Tight

As of June 2015, the holdco had high debt of BRL1.1 billion to be
served up to August 2016. New equity investment into its projects
are expected, which should materially increase holdco debt by
2015. Fitch's base case scenario estimates that Invepar's current
debt service will not be covered by dividends and should be
supported by the shareholders. The dividends received by Invepar
up to 2018 will come primarily from Linha Amarela S.A. (Lamsa,
rated 'A(bra)'; Stable Outlook), Concessionaria Rio-Teresopolis
(CRT, rated 'AA-(bra)'; Stable Outlook) and Concessao Metroviaria
do Rio de Janeiro S.A (Metro Rio; from 2016 onwards). Fitch's
projections estimate Invepar should receive BRL50 million-BRL100
million during 2015, increasing to about BRL100 million-BRL150
million in 2016, benefitting from the start of dividends from
MetroRio. In 2014, Invepar received BRL102 million of dividends,
BRL96 million from Lamsa and BRL6 million from CRT.

Financial Flexibility Provided by Shareholders

The support of these shareholders is a key rating consideration.
Invepar put in place a significant expansion plan over the last
three years, with relevant support from three of its four
shareholders (corresponding to 75% of Invepar's capital). Between
2009 and 2012, these entities jointly provided Invepar with around
BRL3 billion of cash to fund its growth. Fitch understands that
potential support of shareholders is likely, based on the track
record of capital injections since 2009. It mitigates the higher
leverage at the holdco level and should result in a reduction in
current refinancing risks, with long-term capital structure
improvements.

In addition to the three pension funds that are shareholders,
Group OAS currently owns 25% of Invepar's stake. Fitch does not
see material contamination from OAS's Chapter 11 process to
Invepar's credity quality. Besides being a minority shareholder,
Invepar has never depended on OAS's support. The sale of OAS's 25%
shares of Invepar is likely to bring more flexibility to the other
shareholders to continue its strategy of supporting Invepar.

Low Business Risk and Growing EBITDA

Invepar's ratings continue to reflect the group's diversified
portfolio within Brazil's transportation infrastructure sector.
The 15 subsidiaries owned by Invepar are well distributed in the
toll road, airport, and mass transit segments, which generally
provide stable and predictable cash flow generation. As of June
2015, 12 out of a total of 15 subsidiaries were operational.

Invepar has reported significant increases in its consolidated
EBITDA generation, resulting from the maturing of recent projects
and the start-up of pre-operational assets. As of June 2015 LTM,
pro forma EBITDA, which takes into account the proportional stakes
of Invepar in its subsidiaries, more than doubled when compared to
2012, as a result of the development of some businesses, including
Concessionaria Auto Raposo Tavares (CART), MetroRio, GRU Airport
and VPR. During this period, pro forma EBITDA reached BRL1
billion, compared to BRL826 million in 2013 and BRL265 million in
2012, according to Fitch's calculation. Fitch expects Invepar's
subsidiaries to generate BRL2 billion in net revenue, BRL1.3
billion EBITDAR, and BRL200 million of dividends by 2018.

High Leverage Should Decline Gradually

According to Fitch's base case scenario, Invepar's pro forma net
adjusted debt-to-EBITDAR ratio is expected to remain high, close
to 12x by the end of 2015. The high leverage levels are partially
mitigated by the potential cash generation from the projects under
development, which should bring net leverage to below 8.0x, by
2018. On June 30, 2015, on a pro forma basis, considering the
proportional stake of Invepar in its assets, the company had total
debt of BRL15.2 billion (including BRL6.01 billion in concession
obligations) and cash and marketable securities of BRL 1.5
billion. The holdco's debt was BRL1.1 billion due in 2016, and had
cash of BRL41 million.

KEY ASSUMPTIONS

-- Success in the company's strategy to refinance the BRL1
    billion of holdco debt and the BRL2 billion of project bridge
    loans, over the next six to nine months;
-- Brazil's GDP variation of -1.5%, in 2015 and +0.7% in 2016;
-- Inflation rates of 7.4% in 2015 and 6.5% in 2016;


-- Pro forma EBITDA margin on net revenues (excluding
    construction revenues) of 40% in 2015, increasing to 50% in
    2016, according to Fitch's calculation.
-- Pro forma net leverage-to-EBITDAR of 11.5x by 2015.

RATING SENSITIVITIES

Rating upgrades are unlikely in the medium term due to the
challenges Invepar faces to improve its capital structure.

Invepar's ratings could be downgraded if Invepar is not able to
refinance its short-term debt over the next few quarters and if
there should be evidence that shareholders' support weakened.
Negative rating actions could occur if there is a significant
deterioration in the group's operating performance, mainly from
Lamsa and Metro RioAcquisitions, and investments financed by
additional holding company debt could also trigger a negative
rating action.

LIQUIDITY

Invepar's current liquidity is low. On a pro forma basis, as of
June 30, 2015, Invepar had BRL3.1 billion of debt to be repaid
over the next 12 months, including about BRL664 million at the
holdco level and BRL1.8 billion of bridge loans on its projects.
An additional BRL470 million at the holdco level will be due in
August 2016. Invepar's pro forma cash on hand of BRL1.9 billion is
committed, with future mandatory capex.

Fitch foresees that Invepar's projects will be able to issue long-
term debt in order to refinance the bridge loans, supported by
their expected improving cash generation. Besides this, Fitch
believes the holdco is likely to succeed in its plan to achieve a
more conservative capital structure, lengthening its debt
amortization schedule and cushioning its short-term pressures
based on additional support from shareholders.

AES ANDRES: Fitch Affirms 'B+' Rating on USD284MM Bond
------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed the Foreign Currency Issuer Default
Rating (FC IDR) of AES Andres Dominicana SPV (AES Dominicana) and
its USD284 million bond due 2020 at 'B+'. The 'RR4' Recovery
Rating assigned to the 2020 notes reflects the recovery rating cap
of companies domiciled in the Dominican Republic. Additionally,
Fitch has assigned an FC IDR of 'B+' to AES Andres B.V (AES
Andres), and affirmed its National Scale rating at 'A+(dom)'. The
Rating Outlook on both IDRs is Stable.

KEY RATING DRIVERS

AES Dominicana and AES Andres's ratings reflect the Dominican
Republic's (DR) electricity sector's high dependency on transfers
from the central government to service their financial
obligations, a condition that links the credit quality of the
distribution companies and generation companies to that of the
sovereign. Low collections from end-users, high electricity losses
and subsidies have undermined distribution companies' cash
generation capacity, exacerbating generation companies' dependence
on public funds to cover the gap produced by insufficient payments
received from distribution companies. The ratings also consider
the companies' solid asset portfolio, strong balance sheet, and
well-structured purchase power agreements (PPAs).

AES Dominicana SPV represents the combined operating assets of AES
Andres and Dominican Power Partners (DPP), which jointly guarantee
AES Dominicana's USD166 million notes due 2020. These notes are
attached to Itabo Dominicana SPV's USD116 million notes, also
rated 'B+'. DPP currently contributes only about 10% of combined
AES Dominicana EBITDA, further tying AES Dominicana's operational
rating drivers to Andres. In 2017, DPP is expected to complete a
significant capacity expansion in the form of conversion to a
combined-cycle plant, substantially increasing its proportional
revenue and EBITDA contribution to the combined results of AES
Dominicana.

Sector's Dependence on Government Transfers

High energy distribution losses (above 30% in last five years),
low level of collections and important subsidies for end-users
have created a strong dependence on government transfers. This
dependence has been exacerbated by the country's exposure to
fluctuations in fossil-fuel prices and energy demand growth (3.8%
CAGR in 2009-2014). The regular delays in government transfers
pressure working capital needs of generators and add volatility to
their cash flows. This situation increases the risk of the sector,
especially at a time of rising fiscal vulnerabilities affecting
the Central Government's finances.

High-Quality Asset Base

AES Andres has the DR's most efficient power plant, and ranks
among the lowest-cost electricity generators in the country.
Andres' combined-cycle plant burns natural gas and is expected to
be fully dispatched as a base-load unit as long as the liquefied
natural gas (LNG) price is not more than 15% higher than the price
of imported fuel oil No. 6. Moreover, AES Andres operates the
country's sole LNG port, offering regasification, storage, and
transportation infrastructure. In the medium term, the company is
also looking to expand its transportation network and processing
capacity for its LNG operations. By 2017, the aggregate capacity
of AES Dominicana will increase by approximately 114MW as result
of the development of a combined cycle facility in DPP's power
plant. The construction of this project would start by the end of
the year.

Strong Credit Metrics

AES Andres presents strong credit metrics for the rating category.
At June 2015, total debt-to-LTM EBITDA was 1.1x, while total net
debt-to-EBITDA stood at 0.7x as of 2Q15. Major maintenance in the
first half of 2015 (1H15), and lower gas prices have pressured LTM
EBITDA down to USD159 million in 2Q15 from USD187 million at year-
end 2014. With the completion of major maintenance, Fitch expects
moderate recovery in EBITDA at the Andres level in 2016.

For AES Dominicana, total debt-to-LTM EBITDA was 1.3x as of 2Q15,
while total net debt-to-EBITDA stood at 0.7x, versus 0.7x leverage
and 0.2x net leverage for the same period last year. The weaker
leverage is primarily due to a USD260 million credit facility that
is being gradually drawn upon for capex at DPP. The company
expects to have fully drawn down the facility by the end of 2016.
Combined results at AES Dominicana will likely remain low in 2016
reflecting downtimes for the closing of DPP's cycle and the effect
of lower gas prices on PPA indexation.

Cash Flow Volatility Persists
The sector's collections deficit and delays in government
transfers continue to pressure company cash flow. For the LTM June
2015, AES Dominicana generated USD136 million of cash flow from
operations (CFFO), above the USD66 million posted in the same
period last year. This increase is mainly explained by inflows
from accounts receivables and inventory reduction. Weaker EBITDA
of USD172 million (versus USD226 million last year) primarily
reflects lower spot sale revenues at AES Andres and DPP, as well
as longer than expected maintenance downtime at AES Andres.

RATING SENSITIVITIES

A negative rating action to AES Andres and/or AES Dominicana would
follow if the DR's sovereign ratings are downgraded, if there is
sustained deterioration in the reliability of government
transfers, and financial performance deteriorates to the point of
increasing the combined Andres/DPP ratio of debt-to-EBITDA to 4.5x
for a sustained period.

A positive rating action could follow if the DR's sovereign
ratings are upgraded or if the electricity sector achieves
financial sustainability through proper policy implementation.

LIQUIDITY AND DEBT STRUCTURE

Higher Leverage in the Medium Term

As of June 30, 2015, AES Dominicana had cash and marketable
security holdings of USD109 million. Fitch is expecting gross
leverage to peak briefly at over 3.5x during the next 18 months,
as project-related debt is fully recognized. Incremental EBITDA
related to these projects should bring leverage quickly back down
to the 2.5x level thereafter. Fitch further expects AES Dominicana
to maintain or extend its healthy maturity profile.

KEY ASSUMPTIONS

-- Major maintenance in 1Q15 at AES Andres
-- Downtime of 45 days at DPP in 2016 as it converts to combined
    cycle with around 100MW of additional capacity effective
    January 2017
-- Lower natural gas prices and revenues related to NG sales in
    the near term
-- Lower energy prices tied to NG price effects on PPA indexation
-- Higher volume sales of NG in the medium term.

ALPHA STAR: S&P Assigns Prelim. 'BB' Rating to Proposed US$ Cert.
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its preliminary 'BB'
issue rating to the proposed U.S. dollar-denominated sukuk trust
certificates to be issued by Alpha Star Holding II Limited.

Alpha Star Holding II Limited (the issuer) is a special purpose
vehicle incorporated in Cayman Islands, which will enter into a
$100 million sale and purchase agreement with group operating
companies of Damac Real Estate Development Ltd. (Damac;
BB/Stable/--), a Dubai-based residential property developer.

On the closing date, 41% of the proceeds of the sukuk notes will
be put toward a portfolio of Ijara (lease financing) agreements
and the rest toward a Murabaha agreement.  While the sukuk notes
remain outstanding, at least 33% of the notes' outstanding face
value shall be held in the Ijara portfolio.  Under the guarantee
undertaking, Damac is required, among other obligations, to make
up any shortfall between the distribution amount (profit and
principal) and the principal collections from the underlying
assets, in case of a dissolution event, at a sufficient price to
repay the sukuk holders.  This price will be equivalent to the
aggregate face amount of the certificates outstanding, plus any
accrued but unpaid periodic distributions and any other amount
payable by the trustee under the transaction documents.

The preliminary rating on the sukuk reflects S&P's rating on
Damac, since the proposed transaction fulfills the five conditions
of S&P's criteria for rating sukuk:

   -- Damac will provide sufficient and timely contractual
      obligations for the repayment of the principal amount as
      well as the accrued but unpaid periodic distributions on the
      scheduled dissolution date or in case an early dissolution
      event occurs.  Under the sukuk's terms and conditions,
      failure to pay any of the periodic profit distribution
      amounts constitutes an early dissolution event.  This will
      trigger the guarantee, thereby accelerating payment of the
      sukuk if supported by at least 25% of the sukuk holders.

   -- Damac's obligations under the sukuk's terms and conditions
      are irrevocable.

   -- These obligations will rank pari passu with Damac's other
      senior unsecured financial obligations.

   -- Damac will undertake to cover all the costs related to the
      transaction through the servicing agency agreement and the
      guarantee undertaking for the benefit of Alpha Star Holding
      II Limited.

   -- S&P assess as remote the risk that a total loss event (TLE)
      could jeopardize the full and timely repayment of the sukuk.
      S&P's opinion is based on the fact that any TLE would
      typically be mitigated by the guarantee undertaking provided
      by Damac to provide full payment of principal and accrued
      profit upon such an event.

In S&P's view, the proposed sukuk show limited structural
subordination to the consolidated priority liabilities thanks to
upstream irrevocable payment undertakings granted by certain
operating companies to their holding company and the notes'
guarantor, Damac.  The documentation provides sukuk holders with a
degree of stability in respect of the business of the operating
companies that provide a guarantee, such that it restricts the
obligors from representing less than 75% of the trade and other
payables attributed to Damac on a consolidated basis.  This should
result in a ratio of priority liabilities to total assets
sustainably below our 15% threshold for lowering S&P's issue
ratings below the corporate credit rating on speculative-grade
companies.

Under S&P's criteria, it therefore equalizes the preliminary
rating on the sukuk with S&P's long-term foreign currency issuer
credit rating on Damac.  The rating on the sukuk transaction is
preliminary and based on draft documentation.  Should the final
documentation differ substantially from the draft, the rating on
the sukuk could be changed.

This report does not constitute a recommendation to buy, hold, or
sell the certificates.  Standard & Poor's neither structures sukuk
transactions nor provides opinions with regards to compliance of
the proposed transaction with Sharia.

S&P's assessment is based on information as of Sept. 7, 2015.
Subsequent information may result in the assignment of a final
rating that differs from the preliminary rating.  The final rating
will depend upon receipt and satisfactory review of all final
transaction documentation, including legal opinions.  Accordingly,
the preliminary rating should not be construed as evidence of the
final rating.  If Standard & Poor's does not receive final
documentation within a reasonable time frame, or if final
documentation departs from materials reviewed, Standard & Poor's
reserves the right to withdraw or revise its rating.

DOMINICAN REPUBLIC: Haiti Trade Row Splits Big Business
-------------------------------------------------------
Dominican Today reports that the latest dispute over trade between
the Dominican Republic and Haiti has spurred a rift within the
country's National Business Council (Conep), where its president
Rafael Blanco said they'll not negotiate over imports to that
country in exchange for talks over the issue of illegal
immigration while its first vice president called for the dialogue
to resume to ease the deadlock.

Conep Vice President Ligia Bonetti said she favors a continued
dialogue between Santo Domingo and Port-au-Prince and urged the
Binational Council to talks to end the recent difficulties over
trade, according to Dominican Today.

The report notes that Ms. Bonetti said the Haiti government's ban
on 23 Dominican-made products transported by land in effect since
October last year, significantly harm trade, specifically the
sectors which sell those goods.

"We've always talked about keeping an open dialogue, respect the
agreements that we've reached and in this case was an agreement
between Haiti and Dominican Republic.  We urge the Quisqueya
Binational Council, which is composed of business leasers from
both countries to again sit to dialogue because they definitely
have violated the agreements and we haven't been informed of this
legislation or this new decree.  We hope that this is resolved,
because (it) ultimately affects the two countries," Ms. Bonetti
said, the report relates.

The business leader spoke during a press conference by CONEP to
state its position on Public Notaries Law 140-15, which Bonetti
said the business sector expects it will be repealed, the report
adds.


DOMINICAN REPUBLIC: Haiti Ban to Cost Exporters US$500MM in 1Yr
---------------------------------------------------------------
Dominican Today reports that Dominican Exporters Association
(Adoexpo) president Sadala Khoury warned that if Haiti's ban on
domestic products lasts one year, the country would lose out on
around US$500.0 million in exports to that country.

Mr. Khoury made the statement during a meeting with the World Bank
over the Haitian government's measure, which he called arbitrary,
and will jeopardize the neighboring country's consumers, according
to Dominican Today.

The report notes that Mr. Khoury said that the World Bank will
provide technical and financial assistance to promote exports to
other countries such as Jamaica.


EMPRESA GENERADORA: Fitch Affirms 'B+' Issuer Default Ratings
-------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed the local and foreign currency Issuer
Default Ratings (IDR) for Empresa Generadora de Electricidad Itabo
at 'B+'. The rating Outlook is Stable. The rating action includes
the affirmation of the 'B+/RR4' rating on the associated bond due
in 2020 from Itabo Dominicana SPV.

KEY RATING DRIVERS

Itabo's ratings reflect the electricity sector's high dependency
on transfers from the central government to service its financial
obligations, a condition that links the credit quality of the
distribution companies (EDEs) and generation companies to that of
the sovereign. Low collections from end-users, high electricity
losses and subsidies have undermined distribution companies' cash
generation capacity, exacerbating generation companies' dependence
on public funds to cover the gap produced by insufficient payments
received from distribution companies. Itabo's ratings also
consider its low cost generation portfolio, strong balance sheet
and well-structured PPAs, which contribute to strong cash flow
generation and bolster liquidity.

Sector's Dependence on Government Transfers

High energy distribution losses (above 30% in last five years),
low level of collections and important subsidies for end users
have created a strong dependence on government transfers. This
dependence has been exacerbated by country's exposure to
fluctuations in fossil-fuel prices and a robust energy demand
growth (3.8% CAGR in 2009 - 2014). The regular delays in
government transfers pressure working capital needs of generators
and add volatility to their cash flows. This situation increases
the risk of the sector, especially at a time of rising fiscal
vulnerabilities affecting the Central Government's finances.

Continued Working Capital Pressure

For the LTM ended in June 2015, Itabo generated negative USD3.8
million of CFFO, compared to USD51.5 million at year-end 2014.
Like other generators in the country, the company struggles to
collect receivables from distribution companies, and the weaker
cash flow metrics reflect significant working capital outflows
related to lags in government transfers. At the end of 2Q15,
receivable days stood at 191 days (vs. 175 in December 2013).
Fitch expects the continuation of arrears accumulation to add
further volatility to Itabo's cash flow generation in the future.

Low Cost Asset Portfolio

Itabo's ratings incorporate its strong competitive position as one
of the lower cost thermoelectric generators in the country,
ensuring the company's consistent dispatch of its generation
units. The company operates two low cost coal fired thermal
generating units and a third peaking plant that runs on Fuel Oil
#2 (San Lorenzo) and sells electricity to three distribution
companies in the country through long term U.S. dollar denominated
PPAs. The company expects to remain as a base load generator even
after a 700 MW coal generation project, sponsored by the
government, starts operations by 2017.

Adequate Credit Metrics

The company presents strong credit metrics for the rating
category. LTM Leverage, measured as total debt to EBITDA,
increased to 1.6x at June 2015 from 1.4x at December 2014. In the
same period, EBITDA decreased to USD 74.6 million from USD 81.5
million while the EBITDA margin fell slightly to 35.3% from 36.9%.
The decrease reflects lower coal prices, to which prices on
contract sales are linked, and lower overall generation in the
first half of 2015.

RATING SENSITIVITIES

A negative rating action would follow if the DR's sovereign
ratings are downgraded, if there is sustained deterioration in the
reliability of government transfers, and if financial performance
deteriorates to the point of increasing the ratio of Debt-to-
EBITDA to 4.5x for a sustained amount of time.

A positive rating action could follow if the DR's sovereign
ratings are upgraded or if the electricity sector achieves
financial sustainability through proper policy implementation.

LIQUIDITY AND DEBT STRUCTURE

Debt Structure Adds Flexibility

The company's debt structure is quite manageable with a six year
average life which properly contributes to the reduction of
liquidity risk. As of June 30, 201, Itabo's cash and marketable
security holdings stood at of USD29 million providing sufficient
liquidity to meet operational and financial needs.

KEY ASSUMPTIONS

-- No material unplanned stoppages in 2H15; possibility of
    continued climatological impacts on an annual basis
-- Demand growth of approx. 3%
-- Fuel prices to remain low in the near- to medium-term
-- Factoring agreements result in working capital inflows in the
near term

FULL LIST OF RATING ACTIONS

Fitch affirms the following ratings:

Empresa Generadora de Electricidad Itabo
-- Foreign and local currency IDRs at 'B+'.

The Rating Outlook is Stable.


Itabo Dominicana SPV
-- 2020 Senior Unsecured Notes rating at 'B+/RR4'.

JAMAICA: Minister Dismisses Opposition's Criticism
--------------------------------------------------
RJR News reports that Jamaica Finance Minister Dr. Peter Phillips
has scoffed at criticism by the Parliamentary Opposition that the
Jamaican economy is not performing up to par. He contends that
this critique is without basis.

"Things are moving in the right direction, on all counts," he
asserted in an interview with RJR News, contrasting that with what
he said was the opposite situation when the Jamaica Labor Party
was last in government, according to RJR News.

"So, I expect them to say everything negative that they can about
the country," the report quoted Dr. Phillips as saying.

According to Dr. Phillips, the economy is heading in the right
direction, the report notes.

"We have now the platform for sustained growth and job creation;
what we really have to do is built on the foundation that we have
laid, and to achieve the greater gains," Dr. Phillips said, the
report relates.

Dr. Phillips admitted that "it has been very, very difficult to
achieve the stabilization of the economy," the report adds.


                           *     *     *

As reported in Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on July 29,
2015, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its 'B' issue
rating on Jamaica's up to US$2 billion in bonds issued in two
tranches.  The first tranche is for up to US$1,350 million due in
2028.  The second tranche is for up to US$650 million due in 2045.
The government will use the proceeds to purchase debt that Jamaica
owes to Venezuela as well as to finance the government's 2015/2016
budget.

PETROPERU: Ombud Calls for Negotiated Solution to Oil Protests
--------------------------------------------------------------
EFE News reports that the Peruvian Ombud's Office called on the
national government to immediately form a commission tasked with
negotiating with indigenous leaders in the northern Amazon region
of Loreto, where protesters have halted operations at oil block
192 -- the country's largest -- and shut down a nearby airfield.

In a statement, it said that commission needs to reach agreement
with the Indians on the basic conditions for "a dialogue process"
involving Cabinet ministers overseeing areas pertaining to items
on the indigenous agenda, the regional government and
representatives of local communities, according to EFE News.

The national ombud's office also called on indigenous
organizations to refrain from actions that could lead to
confrontations among native peoples, the report notes.

Hundreds of Peruvian Indians have shut down operations at block
192 and the nearby Andoas airfield since Saturday to press demands
that the government address their environmental and territorial
concerns, an indigenous leader, Carlos Sandi, confirmed in remarks
to EFE.

That block, which yields some 11,000 barrels of crude per day,
accounts for 17 percent of domestic oil output.

Indians do not oppose oil drilling but they want to "live a
healthy life, with water suitable for human consumption, health
and education," Mr. Sandi said, the report relates.

EFE News says that the government called on indigenous leaders to
end their occupation and reiterated that state-owned oil company
Petroperu lacks the financial and technical means to operate the
block, despite native communities' calls for it to do so.

Argentine oil company Pluspetrol operated the block from 2001
until July of this year and was periodically accused by local
Indians of polluting their territories and not living up to their
environmental remediation obligations, the report relays.

Peru's Congress passed a bill earlier this month authorizing
Petroperu to develop block 192 despite the vehement opposition of
President Ollanta Humala's administration, which objects to
canceling a two-year concession contract awarded in August to
Canada's Pacific Stratus Energy, the report adds.

PUERTO RICO ELECTRIC: Pushes Off Bondholders Amid Talks
------------------------------------------------------
Pete Brush at Law360.com reports that Puerto Rico's public power
utility said it has been able to extend a forbearance agreement
with certain bondholders through Oct. 1 and has a separate
forbearance extension with fuel line lenders that lasts through
Sept. 25, but it appeared to be struggling to hold increasingly
impatient bond insurers at bay.

Monoline insurers were not parties to the extension agreements,
the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority said, though it said it
was working with those investors as well, according to Law360.com.

                           *     *     *

The Troubled Company Reporter on Feb. 4, 2015 reported that
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it maintained its 'CCC'
rating on the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority's (PREPA) power
revenue bonds on CreditWatch with negative implications.  S&P
originally placed the rating on CreditWatch on June 18, 2014.

On Dec. 15, 2014, TCRLA reported that Fitch is maintaining the
$8.6 billion of Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority (PREPA) power
revenue bonds on Negative Rating Watch.  The bonds are currently
rated 'CC'.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Sept. 19, 2014,
Moody's Investors Service has downgraded the rating for Puerto
Rico Electric Power Authority's (PREPA) $8.8 billion of Power
Revenue Bonds to Caa3 from Caa2.  This rating action concludes the
rating review that Moody's initiated on July 1, 2014.  PREPA's
rating outlook is negative.

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.
