BNB SAFI: Moody's Assigns B-bf Global Scale Bond Fund Rating
------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Latin America Agente de Calificacion de Riesgo has
assigned bond fund ratings to Futuro Asegurado Fondo de Inversion
Abierto Largo Plazo (FIA LP), a soon-to-be launched Bolivian fund
that will be managed by local asset manager BNB SAFI.

The ratings assigned are as follows:

-- Global scale bond fund rating: B-bf

-- National scale bond fund rating: A-bf.bo

Rating Rationale

"The fund ratings are based on Moody's expectation that Futuro
Asegurado will maintain more than 50% of its invested assets in
local currency corporate bonds and treasury bonds issued by the
Bolivian Central Bank that have an average rating of B/Aa.bo-
A.bo. The remainder of the fund's assets are expected to be
allocated to similarly rated time deposits and other highly liquid
investments. The ratings are further supported by Moody's
expectation that the fund manager will maintain a long-term
portfolio duration above five years," said Moody's lead analyst
Carlos de Nevares.

The rating agency noted that the fund will target a return on par
with the average yield for 5-year time deposits. In addition, the
fund prospectus stipulates that redemptions within the first three
years of the fund's life will carry a 10% penalty on accrued
interest. All fund redemptions are monthly.

The new fund expects key shareholders to be individuals (mainly
young families) seeking protection against local inflation.

BNB SAFI, the asset management arm of the BNB financial group, has
been among the top asset gathers in the local mutual fund
industry. As of August 2015, BNB SAFI managed approximately UD$251
million, making it the largest asset manager of local open ended
funds in Bolivia with a 24% market share.


CRESUD SACIF: Fitch Affirms Then Withdraws 'CCC' IDR
----------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed and withdrawn the ratings for Cresud
S.A.C.I.F. y A.  The Rating Outlook for the local currency Issuer
Default Rating (IDR) was Negative at the time of the withdrawal.

Fitch has chosen to withdraw Cresud's ratings for commercial
reasons.

KEY RATING DRIVERS

Fitch will no longer provide rating or analytical coverage of this
issuer.

RATING SENSITIVITIES

No longer relevant as the ratings have been withdrawn.

FULL LIST OF RATING ACTIONS

Fitch has affirmed and withdrawn these ratings:

Cresud S.A.C.I.F. y A. (Cresud).

   -- Foreign currency long-term IDR at 'CCC';
   -- Local currency long-term IDR at 'B-'


FORTALEZA LEASING: Moody's Assigns '(P)B2' Global Scale Rating
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Latin America Agente de Calificacion de Riesgo has
assigned a B2 global scale and a Aa3.bo national scale corporate
family ratings to Fortaleza Leasing S.A. (LFO). Moody's has also
assigned a (P)B2 global scale and a Aa3.bo national scale debt
ratings to LFO multicurrency MTN program. In addition, Moody's has
assigned a B2 global scale and a Aa3.bo national scale debt
ratings to the first two takedowns under the program as well as a
(P) Not Prime global scale and a BO-1 national scale short term
debt ratings to LFO's short term debt program.

All the ratings carry a stable outlook.

The following assessments and ratings were assigned to Fortaleza
Leasing S.A.:

Standalone Baseline Credit Assessment: b3

Adjusted Baseline Credit Assessment: b2

Global Corporate Family Ratings: B2

Bolivian National Scale Corporate Family Ratings: Aa3.bo

Global Local and Foreign Currency MTN Debt Ratings: (P)B2

Bolivian National Scale Local and Foreign Currency MTN Debt
Ratings: Aa3.bo

Global Local Currency Debt Rating: B2

Bolivian National Scale Local Currency Debt Rating: Aa3.bo

Global Short Term Local and Foreign Currency Debt Ratings: (P)
Not Prime

Bolivian National Scale Short Term Local and Foreign Currency
Debt Ratings: BO-1

RATINGS RATIONALE

Fortaleza Leasing's B2 Corporate Family Rating derives from the
company's b3 baseline credit assessment and incorporates a one
notch uplift as a result of Moody's assumptions about affiliate
potential support to be provided by its parent, Banco Fortaleza
S.A. (rated B2).

The assessments and the ratings reflect the company's low income
diversification as a result of its monoline business model, which
constrains earnings generation capacity, and incorporate the risks
associated with a liability structure mainly reliant on market
funds. They also consider the company's well-established franchise
and positioning in the small and developing leasing industry in
Bolivia, its sound capitalization, manageable asset quality
indicators and experienced management team.

Moody's noted that as a part of Grupo Fortaleza, LFO benefits from
Banco Fortaleza's franchise recognition in the small and medium
enterprises (SME) segment in which it specializes, as well as from
its shared risk management practices. Capital levels have remained
adequate despite double digit growth evidenced in the past as the
company continues to reinvest a high proportion of earnings to
support its expansion plans. As of June 2015, tangible common
equity represented 12.9% of total assets.

The company's non-performing loan (NPL) ratio is the highest among
leasing companies in Bolivia, although it remains manageable at
2.8% as of June 2015. NPLs are mostly explained by delinquencies
in the microfinance segment, to which other leasing companies are
less exposed. LFO's portfolio is well diversified by industry and
benefits from relatively high granularity; the company has been
reducing its exposure to microfinance in recent years as it shifts
towards the SME market.

Profitability has been weak, as reflected in LFO's return on
average assets of 0.89% as of June 2015. In spite of the fact that
LFO's interest margins have been shrinking slightly in recent
years, they remain high -- at 8.4% as of June 2015 - because
lending rates in the leasing industry are not subject to
regulatory caps as opposed to those applicable to banking loans.
However, bottom-line net income has been affected by high
operating expenses, at levels of 69% of income as of June 2015.

Fortaleza Leasing's funding structure is mainly reliant on credit
lines from financial institutions and debt issuances in the local
market, which exposes the company to refinancing and interest rate
risk. The company's liquidity metrics are moderate as reflected in
its liquid assets to total assets ratio of 5% as of June 2015.
However, LFO shows a balance sheet with limited mismatches in its
term structure.

The ratings could face downward pressure if the operating
environment deteriorates, affecting the entities' business
prospects, asset quality, profitability or capitalization and/or
if Banco Fortaleza's ratings, which is the affiliate support
provider, are downgraded. LFO's ratings could face upward pressure
if Banco Fortaleza's ratings are upgraded.

Headquartered in La Paz, Fortaleza Leasing is Bolivia's third
largest leasing company in terms of loans, with assets of Bs130
million and shareholders' equity of Bs16 million as of June 30,
2015.


VTR FINANCE: S&P Affirms 'B+' CCR, Outlook Stable
-------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it affirmed its 'B+'
corporate credit rating on Chilean telecom and cable company VTR
Finance B.V.  The outlook is stable.

S&P also affirmed its 'B+' issue rating on VTR's $1.4 billion
senior notes due 2024.

The ratings affirmation reflects S&P's view of the company's
revenue and cash flow predictability, given its proven ability to
maintain a consistent customer base, resulting in decreasing
customer turnover.  S&P's affirmation also incorporates its
expectation that VTR's debt to EBITDA will remain below 4.5x in
the next two years, a level consistent with S&P's "aggressive"
financial risk assessment.

The rating on VTR's senior notes is the same as the corporate
credit rating.  At this time, S&P do not believe that the
investors in the senior notes face a material disadvantage as
creditors of the non-operating holding company.  These investors
have a junior claim to the notes (they would only receive the
residual value of the subsidiaries' assets -- after the
subsidiaries' direct liabilities have been satisfied).  S&P
currently estimates priority liabilities of close to 15% of net
tangible assets.  If VTR withdraws additional amounts from its
revolving credit facility or incurs any other material priority
liabilities -- leading to a ratio of priority obligations to net
tangible assets consistently above 15% -- S&P would view the notes
as structurally subordinated and would lower the issue rating by
one notch.

The outlook is stable.  Given its current market position in the
cable business in Chile and its new product bundling packages--
with relatively high broadband speed-- S&P believes that the
company will continue to show modest revenue and EBITDA growth
while maintaining leverage metrics similar to current levels for
the next-two years.

S&P could lower the ratings if VTR's credit metrics were to weaken
over the next two years, specifically if debt to EBITDA increases
above 4.5x and FFO to debt is below 20%.  This could occur if the
company increases debt in order to pay dividends or if weaker
operating performance -- as a result of increased competition --
translates into higher subscriber churn or a reduction in the
customer base or revenue generating units (RGU).

Although unlikely in the near term, given S&P's low free cash flow
expectations, it could upgrade the company if its debt to EBITDA
is less than 3.5x and FFO to debt improves to more than 25% on a
continued basis.  This could occur if the company strengthens its
business risk profile by further increasing its scale and product
diversity while maintaining a strong share of the pay TV segment.

JBS SA: Fitch Raises IDR to 'BB', Outlook Stable
------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has upgraded JBS S.A.'s foreign and local currency
Issuer Default Ratings and senior unsecured notes to 'BB+' from
'BB'.  The National Scale rating was upgraded to 'AA (bra)' from
'A+(bra)'.

KEY RATING DRIVERS

The Rating Outlook is Stable.

The upgrades reflect JBS S.A.'s strong product and geographic
diversification, as well as the successful integration of several
acquired businesses over the past few years.  It also factors in
the strengthening of its business profile due to the recent
acquisitions in the U.S., Europe and Australia.  Fitch estimates
that these acquisitions will contribute to about 10% of total
EBITDA by 2016.  Furthermore, Fitch expects the company to report
strong performance in all of its divisions in 2015 and 2016.
JBS's ratings are tempered by management's acquisitive nature and
appetite for growth.

Strong Business Profile:

JBS S.A.'s ratings are supported by its strong business profile as
the world's largest beef and leather producer and its overall
product diversification into poultry, beef, pork and other
prepared foods.  The company's product and geographic
diversification help mitigate risks related to disease and trade
restrictions as about 70% of net revenues are generated from JBS's
operations outside of Brazil (most notably the U.S.); exports
represent about 30% of group sales.  Fitch expects the
acquisitions of Moy Park, Primo Smallgoods Group, Tyson Mexico and
Cargill Pork (still pending) to further enhance JBS's business
profile by increasing its product portfolio and adding to
geographic diversification.

Industry Fundamentals:

Fitch expects 2015 to be a more difficult year for the Brazilian
protein sector due to the weak economic environment, high
inflation, increased interest and unemployment rates, and
declining consumer confidence.  The industry is responding to
these challenges by reducing its processing capacity in the
country.  Brazilian exporters are benefitting from the
depreciation of the real and the growing demand for beef
worldwide.  Asia and the Middle East remain the positive growth
drivers.  In the U.S., JBS' beef segment is experiencing a
recovery due to higher demand although beef margins are expected
to remain challenged as cattle inventories build.  Low grain
prices should continue to support profitability in JBS' U.S.
chicken segment.

Moderate Leverage:

Fitch expects JBS's net debt/EBITDA ratio to increase to about
3.0x by the end of 2015 from 2.3x in 2014 as a result of the
acquisitions made in 2015 and the devaluation of the real against
the U.S. dollar (87% of JBS debt is in USDs as of June 2015).
This is mitigated by the fact that 84% of JBS net revenues are in
USDs and 100% of its debt was hedged as of June 2015.  Fitch
considers JBS' balance sheet hedging strategy is aggressive and
adds to its overall risk profile despite having a recent positive
impact on the company's net leverage.  Fitch expects JBS to report
double-digit EBITDA growth and positive free cash flow (FCF)
generation in 2015 fuelled by the devaluation of the real against
the U.S. dollar, the integration of assets acquired and the
group's focus on operating efficiency.  JBS reported strong sales
and EBITDA growth in the second quarter of 2015 (2Q15).  EBITDA
reached BRL3.6 billion, an increase of 47% compared with 2Q14.

Acquisition Risk:

Fitch believes the company will continue to pursue growth
opportunities to strengthen its business profile in the medium
term.  In March 2015, the group acquired Primo Group, Australia's
biggest ham and bacon producer, for USD1.125 billion.  In June
2015, JBS agreed to buy Moy Park Ltd from Marfrig Global Foods
S.A. for USD1.5 billion.  Finally, the group also announced that
it has entered into an agreement with Cargill to acquire the
company's U.S.-based pork business for USD1.45 billion which will
increase JBS presence in the U.S.  The latter deal is subject to
the regulatory approvals, including U.S. antitrust authorities.

KEY ASSUMPTIONS

   -- Double-digit revenue growth driven by acquisitions and
      devaluation of the real against the U.S. dollar

   -- Slight compression of EBITDA margin, notably for JBS
      Mercosul

   -- Positive group FCF

   -- Net debt/EBITDA to about 3.0x by FYE2015

RATING SENSITIVITIES

A downgrade could be precipitated by an increase in JBS' net
leverage ratio to above 3.5x on a sustained basis due to a sharp
contraction in its operating margins, negative FCF generation,
and/or significant debt-funded acquisitions.

An upgrade is unlikely over the next 24 months as the company
further displays consistent financial discipline to meet stated
financial targets and objectives.  An upgrade could result from
the company showing consistent positive FCF generation and
resilient operating margins, while maintaining its solid business
profile, leading to its net leverage ratio falling toward or below
2.5x on a sustained basis.

LIQUIDITY

JBS' liquidity is supported by its cash balance, positive FCF and
committed undrawn bank lines.  As of June 30, 2015, the company
had BRL13.9 billion of cash and marketable securities and short-
term debt of BRL15.9 billion (mostly trade finance debt).  In
addition, JBS USA LLC had USD1.6 billion in fully committed
available lines.  The group has also satisfactory access to the
capital markets.

FULL LIST OF RATING ACTIONS

Fitch has upgraded the ratings:

JBS S.A.:

   -- Foreign & local currency IDR to 'BB+' from 'BB';
   -- National Scale rating to 'AA (bra)' from 'A+(bra)';
   -- Notes due 2016 to 'BB+' from 'BB'.

JBS USA LLC:

   -- Foreign and local currency IDR to 'BB+' from 'BB';
   -- Term loan B facility due in 2018 to 'BBB-' from 'BB+';
   -- Notes due 2020, 2021 to 'BB+' from 'BB'.

JBS USA Finance, Inc:

   -- Notes due 2020, 2021 upgraded to 'BB+' from 'BB'.

JBS Investments GmbH

   -- Notes due 2020, 2023, 2024 to 'BB+' from 'BB'.


RIO OIL: Fitch Lowers Rating on USD2BB Notes to 'BB+'
-----------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has downgraded Rio Oil Finance Trust's issuances as:

   -- USD2 billion series 2014-1 notes to 'BB+' from 'BBB-';

   -- BRL 2.4 billion series 2014-2 special indebtedness interests
      to 'AAsf(bra)' from 'AAAsf(bra)';

   -- USD1.1 billion series 2014-3 notes to 'BB+' from 'BBB-'.

Fitch has assigned a Negative Outlook to all of the issuances,
which were on Rating Watch Negative prior to today's downgrades.

The downgrades are a result of the continued downturn in oil
prices and the impact on debt service coverage levels.  The
Negative Outlook reflects the impact lower oil prices may have on
future production levels that would in turn further impact debt
service coverage levels.  The ratings on all series are ultimately
supported by the structural features in place including the DSCR
triggers and six-month reserve account.  The ratings address
timely payment of interest and principal on a quarterly basis.

The issuances are backed by the royalty flows owed by oil
concessionaires, predominantly operated by Petroleo Brasileiro
S.A. (Petrobras), to the government of the state of Rio de Janeiro
(RJS), who assigned 100% of the flows to RioPrevidencia (RP), the
state's pension fund.

KEY RATING DRIVERS

Transaction Performance Impacted by Depressed Oil Prices:
Depressed oil prices have translated into lower than expected
coverage ratios, minimizing the transaction's ability to absorb
further stress levels.  The actual DSCR reported for 2015 Q3 was
3.8x and the annualized DSCR was 5.0x.  Going forward, these
numbers are expected to further decrease as senior tranches start
amortizing in 2016 and government debt obligations remain
substantial until 2018.

Breach of Forward Looking DSCR Trigger: The company's quarterly
surveillance report released on Sept. 24, 2015 presented a breach
of the forward looking DSCR trigger at 1.2x, from a minimum
required of 1.5x.  Breach could lead to the commencement of an
Early Amortization Period that calls for 60% of excess cash to be
used to prepay notes on a monthly basis.  While the DSCR trigger
provides additional protections, the trigger does not fully
reflect the cash flows generated from the transaction.  This
calculation assumes the Law 12734 has been fully implemented and
it does not incorporate any increases in production over the
initial estimations.  The actual DSCR for 2016 would be closer to
2.0x's.

Future Expected Production Increases at Risk: The impact of
Petrobras' revised production plan on the Rio de Janeiro fields is
yet to be assessed.  However, continued depressed oil prices may
further impact production expectations as Petrobras' investment
plan released on June 29, 2015 was based on an oil price of USD60,
translating into lower than expected DSCR levels.  Nevertheless
Fitch does not expect this to have a large impact on short-term
production levels.

Potential Increase in Political Risk: Retention of part of the
excess cash flows in combination of the state's weaker credit
profile decreases the incentive of the sponsor to support the
transaction and increases the exposure of the transaction to
political risk.

RATING SENSITIVITIES

The ratings are capped by the credit quality of Petrobras as the
main obligor of the flows backing this transaction and to Brazil's
sovereign and country ceiling ratings.

The transaction is exposed to price and volume risk related to oil
production.  Further declines in prices or production levels
significantly below expectations may trigger downgrades.

Although the transaction rating is not directly linked to the
originator's rating, in case of considerable downgrade of the
state's rating, the rating of the transaction may be impacted
negatively.

Additionally, the ratings are sensitive to the rating of Banco do
Brasil as a direct counterparty to the transaction.

DUE DILIGENCE USAGE

No third party due diligence was provided or reviewed in relation
to this rating action.


MARFRIG GLOBAL: Could Buy Back Up to $701.3 Million in Global Debt
------------------------------------------------------------------
Reuters reports that the board of Marfrig Global Foods SA,
Brazil's No. 2 meatpacker, approved the repurchase of up to $701.3
million in global bonds due between 2018 and 2021, the latest
effort by a Brazilian company to buy back debt in the wake of a
slumping currency and rising borrowing costs.

The Sao Paulo-based company's board authorized management to make
an all-cash tender for the outstanding $51.3 million worth of
11.25 percent senior bonds issued by a European subsidiary and
maturing in September 2021, according to a securities filing,
Reuters says.

The board also approved the repurchase of $500 million worth of
global debt maturing in 2018, 2019 and 2020, which could be
increased by an additional $150 million under undisclosed
conditions. Coupon rates for these senior, dollar-denominated
bonds range from 6.875 percent to 9.50 percent, the filing said,
according to Reuters.

The report notes that for many Brazilian banks and companies,
long-term dollar-denominated funding has turned expensive after a
35 percent drop in the real this year stoked hedging costs.
Brazilian markets are going through their worst rout in 13 years
on concerns that slowing Chinese growth and escalating political
turmoil may lead the country to lose its investment-grade rating
by next year, the report relays.

Marfrig, which has struggled in recent years with a heavy debt
burden despite robust beef and processed food sales, hired the
investment banking units of Banco do Brasil SA, Banco Bradesco SA,
HSBC Holdings Plc and Morgan Stanley & Co to manage the debt
buyback, the report adds.


MARFRIG GLOBAL: S&P Affirms 'B+' CCR, Outlook Stable
----------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it affirmed its 'B+'
global scale and 'brBBB' national scale corporate credit ratings
on Marfrig Global Foods S.A.  At the same time, S&P has affirmed
the 'B+' issue level rating on the company's senior unsecured
debt.  The outlook on the corporate credit ratings is stable.

The rating affirmation reflects S&P's view that the company's
recently announced tender offer to repurchase the senior unsecured
notes is an opportunistic transaction.  S&P believes the
repurchase is a part of the company's liability management
efforts.  The company is attempting to tender up to $701 million
in several bonds outstanding that are due in 2018, 2019, 2020, and
2021.  At the time of the announcement, the tender of the bonds
includes cash payment at market value, plus a $30 premium per note
for the early acceptance of the offer.  No other changes to the
terms and conditions are proposed.  Although final tender values
are typically below the face value of the notes, the final tender
prices are, in this case, above market value.  The maturities of
all tendered notes are long-term bullet payments, and the notes
that are not tendered will continue to be honored according to the
original terms and conditions.  In addition, while the offer is
not mandatory, S&P do not foresee a bankruptcy or insolvency risk
for Marfrig if the offer is not accepted.

The company will carry out the cash payments of the tendered notes
using the proceeds from the recently concluded sale of the entire
ownership interest held by Marfrig in Moy Park Holdings Europe
(B+/Watch Pos/--) to JBS S.A. (BB+/Stable/--).  The final
transaction includes a $1.2 billion cash payment, plus Moy Park's
net debt transference of GBP193 million to JBS. Marfrig will
primarily use the proceeds of the sale to reduce leverage, which
S&P already anticipated.  The company will use the remainder of
the proceeds, after the payment of the tender, to repay other high
bank debts and to strengthen its cash position.

CHILE: Sets 70% Non-Conventional Renewable Energy Target for 2050
-----------------------------------------------------------------
EFE News reports that Chile's government says that as part of its
push for a low-emission and cost-competitive energy future, it has
set a goal of lifting non-conventional renewables' share of the
country's energy matrix to 70 percent by 2050.

That target, which would represent a 58-percentage-point gain with
respect to the current level, was announced, a day after President
Michelle Bachelet pledged before the U.N. General Assembly that
Chile would reduce carbon-dioxide emissions between now and 2030
by 30 percent if it receives international support, according to
EFE News.

The report notes that Energy Minister Maximo Pacheco announced the
new target as part of his presentation of Chile's "Roadmap to
2050: Toward a Sustainable and Inclusive Energy Future."

The government is proposing that non-conventional renewable
sources account for at least 70 percent of Chile's energy matrix
in 2050, a plan in which solar and wind energy will be the focus,
complimented by new small hydroelectric projects as well as
biomass, geothermal energy and marine energy, the report relates.

The report discloses that Chile's Energy Ministry says that in the
South American country the term "non-conventional renewable
energy" is used to exclude large hydropower (greater than 20 MW)
projects from the "renewable energy" category.

In the transportation sphere, the roadmap calls for reversing the
upward trend in private vehicle use by creating a quality public
transport system and offering more non-motorized options and
intermodal systems, the report notes.

It also places a priority on clean fuels, stating that all cars
and cargo vehicles, as well as 100 percent of buses in areas with
anti-pollution plans, will be low- or zero-emission vehicles by
2050, the report says.

Non-conventional renewables account for 11.7 percent of the energy
fed into Chile's grid system, according to the National Center for
Renewable Energy Innovation and Development, or Cifes, meaning
that Tuesday's target would entail a 58.3-percentage-point
increase in 34 years, the report adds.

* DOMINICAN REPUBLIC: Haitian Migration by The Numbers
------------------------------------------------------
Dominican Today reports that around 192,000 people entered the
Dominican Republic through the various border crossings in 2014,
according to Immigration Agency data published in a report of the
Dominican Republic, prepared by Natalia Riveros for the Caribbean
Migratory Observation and Social Development Center (OBMICA).

The document published by acento.com.do highlights that most
people who came across the border did so at Jimani (52%) and
Dajabon (36%), Elias Pi┬ža (9.9%) and Pedernales, 1.7%, according
to Dominican Today.

The report notes that it said 135,060 people left Dominican
Republic through those crossings.

Report guest author Eddy Tejada said 45,090 fewer people entered
the country in 2014 than in 2013, with 237,147 entering that year,
while 163,382 left the territory, the report relays.

                               Visas

Citing Foreign Ministry figures in June 2015, the OBMICA report
says 82,778 visas were issued to Haitian citizens to enter the
Dominican Republic, the report relays.

OBMICA report, again citing Foreign Ministry figures, shows that
despite that Haitian immigration for the most part is considered
irregular, there are many people entering formally, mostly
tourists, the report adds.

JAMAICA: Fast, But Not Quite on Target, IMF on Debt Decline
-----------------------------------------------------------
RJR News reports that the International Monetary Fund has conceded
that, despite the projection that Jamaica's debt will decline
faster than previously expected, it is still not fast enough to
reach the marker set at the start of the four year Extended Fund
Facility.

Jamaica had set a marker to reduce the debt to 96 percent of GDP
by 2020, according to RJR News.   The report notes that IMF has
revealed, however, that a revised projection shows the decline
will be to 98.5 per cent.

Jamaica started the program with a debt-to-GDP ratio of 146.5%,
the report relays.

With the recent deal in which PetroCaribe debt was re-financed in
Jamaica's favor, the public debt is projected to reach 125 percent
of GDP at the end of this fiscal year, which is a faster decline
that previously projected, 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.

OFFICE DEPOT:  S&P Affirms 'BB' CCR, Outlook Stable
---------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services affirmed its 'BB' global scale
corporate credit on Office Depot de Mexico S.A. de C.V. (ODM).
S&P also affirmed its 'BB' issue rating on the company's
$350 million senior unsecured notes, with a recovery rating of
'3L'.  The outlook on the corporate credit rating is stable.

"The 'BB' rating affirmation is supported by the company's
continued positive cash flow generation despite its acquisitions
of Radio Shack in Mexico and Grupo Prisa in Chile during the
second quarter of 2015, and dividends of MXN140 million during the
same period," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Sandra Tinoco.
"In our view, the company's solid market position coupled with the
recovery of consumption trends in Mexico have been supporting
ODM's revenue growth in the low-to-mid single digits in the last
four quarters," she added.

Also, S&P factors in the company's ability to preserve its capital
structure by funding its recent acquisitions and organic growth
initiatives without incurring additional debt; therefore, S&P
expects the company to continue funding its accelerated expansion
program and possible small acquisitions with its own cash in the
next few years.  S&P has revised ODM's liquidity to "strong" from
"adequate," which reflects the company's incremental sources of
cash mainly because there are no short-term debt maturities.  In
S&P's view, the company's strong liquidity and the existing hedges
of its debt coupons mitigate the exchange rate exposure related to
its dollar-denominated debt, provide good comfort that the company
has the flexibility to meet all its debt service payments, even
under a scenario of further depreciation of the Mexican peso.
Despite the company's exposure to dollar denominated debt and the
adverse impact on leverage stemming from the depreciation of the
Mexican peso, debt to EBITDA for the last 12 months ended June 30,
2015, was slightly below 4x, which S&P expects will remain during
the second half of 2015.  These metrics still correspond to a
"significant" financial risk profile.

IGLESIA EPISCOPAL: S&P Raises Rating to 'CCC+', Outlook Stable
--------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services has raised its long-term rating
on Puerto Rico Industrial Medical & Higher Education &
Environmental Pollution Control Facilities Financial Authority's
bonds, issued for Iglesia Episcopal Puertorriquena Inc. (IEP), to
'CCC+' from 'CCC'.  The outlook is stable.

"The upgrade to 'CCC+' reflects IEP's ability to refinance its
outstanding $68 million bank debt effective May 29, 2015," said
Standard & Poor's credit analyst Stephen Infranco.  The original
loan had had a bullet maturity of less than one year and was
causing a potential liquidity shortfall and vulnerability to
nonpayment absent a refinancing.  The payment due was continually
extended for short three month intervals while management
negotiated a longer term deal.  Under the current refinancing, two
banks--Santander Bank and First Bank agreed to refinance the
entire debt outstanding and provide an additional $17 million for
working capital ($10 million line of credit) and equipment loan
($7 million).  While IEP still maintains a weak financial profile,
the refinancing of the bank debt extends the maturity five years,
and mitigates the near-term vulnerability to nonpayment of the
entire principal.

The stable outlook reflects S&P's assessment of IEP's improved
credit profile given the ability to refinance the bank debt and
extend the maturity for five years.  Furthermore, operations,
while weaker than prior years, are still break-even, and
management is offsetting weaker revenue with cost containment
initiatives.

Given IEP's interim results and potential for continued operating
stress, S&P could lower the rating if financial performance
deteriorates and IEP breaches its financial covenants, potentially
causing an acceleration of the bank debt.  Furthermore, given the
uncertainty surrounding the Puerto Rico economy, including
significant budgetary stress, there could be macro level events
that are out of management control, such as delayed payments or
non-payment for health care services that could pressure the
rating.

S&P would consider a positive outlook or higher rating if
financial performance improves and is sustained such that there is
no need to access the line of credit for cash flow purposes.
Furthermore, given the fragile state of the Puerto Rico economy
and the high reliance IEP has on governmental reimbursement, S&P
would want to see some resolution or stabilization of the
budgetary pressures currently affecting the commonwealth before
raising the rating to the 'B' category.


PUERTO RICO: Demands Same Bankruptcy Help That States Get
---------------------------------------------------------
Maya Rajamani at Law360.com reports that Puerto Rican officials
testifying at a Senate Committee on Finance hearing Tuesday urged
U.S. lawmakers to provide Puerto Rico with the same access to
Chapter 9 of the federal bankruptcy code that U.S. states receive
as the territory struggles under a $73 billion debt cloud.

While Melba Acosta, president of the Government Development Bank
for Puerto Rico, said the financial crisis has "passed the tipping
point" and called on Congress to take immediate action, Puerto
Rico's representative in the U.S. Congress, Pedro R. Pierluisi,
said disparities under federal programs have played a large role
in the current situation, according to Law360.com.

"Congress cannot in good conscience criticize Puerto Rico without
acknowledging the fact that Congress shares culpability for the
territory's problems," Mr. Pierluisi said, the report relates.
"If the crisis has taught us a single lesson, it is that a
'business as usual' approach in San Juan and Washington D.C. will
fail," Mr. Pierluisi added.

The report notes that Puerto Rico, currently facing $73 billion in
debt, is not permitted under U.S. law to access Chapter 9 of the
Bankruptcy Code, the provision that gives financially distressed
municipalities and public utilities the ability to restructure
their debt through the courts.  Chapter 9 is the same provision
Detroit and other struggling U.S. cities have used to adjust their
debts, but Puerto Rico, unlike states, is specifically barred from
invoking the bankruptcy lifeline, the report relays.

Puerto Rico officials confirmed the commonwealth would be unable
to make a $58 million bond payment that was due Aug. 1, marking
the first time the territory has defaulted on its obligations as
it attempts to restructure its debt, the report discloses.

In his testimony, Mr. Pierluisi supported legislation introduced
by Senate Democrats in July that would give Puerto Rico the
ability to authorize its municipalities to enter Chapter 9, saying
he felt that Puerto Rico's status as a territory has given
Congress a license to treat the country worse than the states when
it comes to federal spending and tax credit programs, the report
relays.

The U.S. government provides about $1 billion to Puerto Rico each
year for Medicaid funding, compared with the $3.6 billion it
provides to Mississippi and the $5 billion it gives to Oregon,
which is similar in population size, Mr. Pierluisi said, the
report notes.

Disparities under programs including but not limited to Medicaid,
Supplemental Security Income and the Child Tax Credit have led the
government to spend or borrow to compensate for the shortfalls,
which increases debt and deficits and spurts Puerto Ricans to move
to the states rather than stay in Puerto Rico, Mr. Pierluisi
added, the report relays.

"If Chapter 9 is appropriate for the states, it is appropriate for
the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico," Mr. Pierluisi said, the report
discloses.

The chairman of the Finance Committee, Sen. Orrin Hatch, however,
was dubious about bailing Puerto Rico out with federal funding
aid, the report relays.

The report notes that the Utah Republican pointed out that the
country's debt has more than doubled since 2000, "despite the
billions of dollars infused into its coffers from the federal
stimulus enacted in 2009 and from health care funding increases
included in the Affordable Care Act."

"Even with those boosts in federal funding and the related
increases in Commonwealth spending, all we see is added
Commonwealth debt," Hatch said, the report relays.

The report notes that though Acosta praised Puerto Rican Gov.
Alejandro Garcia Padilla for his handling of the crisis, saying he
has "forcefully responded" to "unprecedented" challenges, Mr.
Pierluisi said Garcia Padilla's treatment of Puerto Rico's death
as "monolithic" was "unwise" and called on him to consider each
facet on a case-by-case basis.

"The government's recent actions have badly tarnished Puerto
Rico's credibility and standing among investors, and it must take
great care not to pursue a strategy going forward that will make
permanent adversaries of those whose capital it will one day
require," Mr. Pierluisi said, the report relays.

On Sept. 17, the U.S. Department of the Treasury also called on
U.S. lawmakers to take action to open bankruptcy protections to
Puerto Rico, saying addressing the territory's financial
difficulties will be difficult without federal legislation, the
report notes.

Earlier in September, a group of Democratic Latino lawmakers sent
a letter urging the Treasury to help the commonwealth by bringing
creditors and debtors to the table, the report discloses.

The Treasury also threw its support behind Padilla's proposed
five-year plan, which encourages Puerto Rico policymakers to amend
the corporate tax regime, stimulate the labor force, revamp
welfare programs and cut government spending, the report notes.

The report accompanying the plan found that if Puerto Rico fails
to take action, it would likely see a $27.8 billion financing gap
between fiscal 2016 and fiscal 2020, Law360.com notes.  However,
even if all the suggested changes are implemented, the report
expects Puerto Rico to still see a $14 billion gap, the report
relays.

The report comes after Puerto Rico in late August urged the U.S.
Supreme Court to take up an appeal seeking to revive legislation
that would have allowed the territory's utilities to restructure
$20 billion in debt, telling the justices that the situation is
dire and that the territory cannot depend on Congress for help.

The petition seeks review of a First Circuit decision that Puerto
Rico's legislation to establish a restructuring regime was
unconstitutional, the report adds.

TRINIDAD & TOBAGO: Economist Not Surprised at Contraction
---------------------------------------------------------
Trinidad and Tobago News reports that news that Trinidad and
Tobago's economy contracted by almost two percent during the first
six months of 2015, was not surprising to senior economist, Dr.
Ronald Ramkissoon.

Dr. Ramkissoon did not however, expect the Central Bank's (CBTT)
latest Monetary Policy Announcement (MPA) to include data about a
contraction in construction, manufacturing and distribution,
according to Trinidad and Tobago News.

"The decline in the first half, and possibly for the year, is not
surprising given the fall in the price of our major export
commodities (oil and gas) and no significant increase in output,"
Dr. Ramkissoon told Newsday, the report relays.

"It is, of course, the kind of situation which economists have
been warning about for the past six months.  We were heading into
a more difficult period and therefore we needed to first be
careful about ramping up expenditure because this was going to put
pressure on the country's reserves," Dr. Ramkissoon added.

So that what we see happening now; with respect to the near two
percent decline, is really something that we could have foreseen,"
Dr. Ramkissoon stated, the report notes.

The report discloses that regarding the decline in the
construction and distribution sectors, he found this surprising
given certain on-going projects such as the Point Fortin Highway.

On the matter of the distribution contraction, Dr. Ramkissoon said
this was unexpected because "one got the impression people were
still spending and lending was still relatively strong," the
report relays.  The standard definition of a recession is two
consecutive quarters of negative growth but former CBTT Governor,
Ewart Williams, once said a more suitable indicator for developing
countries like TT is five consecutive quarters of negative growth,
the report discloses.

Asked if it was therefore too soon to say TT is in a recession,
Dr. Ramkissoon told Newsday there was no need to "get caught up in
the technical definition of a recession" because the country is
"in a difficult place."  Dr. Ramkissoon said this had to do with
the fact that "our revenues are very weak while expenditure
remains particularly high", citing the various wage increases
received by public servants following settlement of their
collective bargaining agreements over the past year or so, the
report says.

"Given that oil and gas prices are about half where they were, we
are in a difficult place, there's no doubt about that, and that is
the backdrop against which the forthcoming budget has to be cast,"
Dr. Ramkissoon stated, the report adds.


TRINIDAD & TOBAGO: Concerns Raised on "Stagnant" Position
---------------------------------------------------------
Trinidad Express reports that concerns have been raised about
Trinidad and Tobago's "stagnant" position on the Global
Competitiveness Index (GCI).

For another year, the country remained at position 89 out of 144
countries on the index, a ranking Planning and Development
Minister Camille Robinson-Regis said this country must not simply
accept, according to Trinidad Express.

"Unfortunately, the indices over the last few years seem to
indicate that, as a country, our level of competitiveness has been
stagnant.  We appear to have become firmly attached to position
number 89 out of the 144 countries surveyed and a score of 4.0,
though this figure has declined slightly to 3.9 for 2015," Ms.
Robinson-Regis said, the report notes.

"Before the rigor mortis of our competitiveness sets in then, we
must act with determination and with alacrity," Ms. Robinson-Regis
added, the report relays.

LATAM: Downward Trend Continues for Corporates, Fitch Says
----------------------------------------------------------
The recent downward cash flow trend for Latin American Corporates
is likely to continue, according to a new Fitch Ratings report.

'Weakness in cash flow metrics have been on a downward trend for
Investment Grade and Speculative Grade issuers across Latin
America the last four years with little relief in sight,' said
Phillip Wrenn, an Associate Director at Fitch.  'Capex is being
cut dramatically across the region, which has improved the FCF
generation in the investment-grade categories and has reduced the
negative ratio in the high-yield categories.'

In its new report, Fitch analyzed 93 investment grade issuers and
85 speculative grade issuers across five cash flow metrics, growth
in funds from operations (FFO), growth in cash flow from
operations (CFFO), growth in free cash flow (FCF) and growth in
revenues, as well as EBITDA margin expansion.  Only 22% of the 93
investment grade companies analyzed exhibited year-over-year
improvement in cash flow metrics across either four out of five or
all five criteria in 2014 compared to 38% of the investment-grade
portfolio in 2011.  Among the 22 issuers that had sharp upward
trends, four have been upgraded in the past year: BRF, Braskem,
Sigma and TGI.

Similar to the investment-grade issuers, approximately 32% of the
speculative-grade credits analyzed were four- and five-star
performers in 2014 vs. 38% in 2011.  Among these issuers, 21 were
rated in the 'BB' category.  Of the 25 issuers that showed broad-
based cash flow improvement, six were upgraded during the past 12
months: Cemex, Cementos de Chihuahua, InRetail Real Estate, JBS,
Marfrig and Suzano.
