RATINGS RATIONALE

Oil prices have deteriorated substantially in the past few weeks
and have reached nominal price lows not seen in more than a
decade. Moody's has adjusted its view downward for the likely
range of prices. Moody's sees a substantial risk that prices may
recover much more slowly over the medium term than many companies
expect, as well as a risk that prices might fall further. Even
under a scenario with a modest recovery from current prices,
producing companies and the drillers and service companies that
support them will experience rising financial stress with much
lower cash flows.

Today's review for downgrade considers that much weaker industry
fundamentals have potential to warrant rating changes for all
companies covered in this press release. While this review focuses
on companies rated in the range from A1 to B3, Moody's is also
reevaluating higher and lower rated companies in the context of
industry conditions. The higher rated companies on average are
somewhat more resilient to low oil prices and many of the lower
rated companies have recently been downgraded.

As part of its ongoing assessment of energy markets, Moody's
sharply reduced its oil price assumptions on January 21 in light
of continuing oversupply in the global oil markets and demand
growth that remains tepid. Iran is poised to soon add 500,000 to
1,000,000 barrels per day to global supply. OPEC and many non-OPEC
oil producers continue to produce without restraint as they battle
for market share, and the addition of Iranian oil to the market
this year will offset or exceed expected declines in US production
of about 500,000 barrels per day. Increased production vastly
exceeds growth in oil consumption, given modest growth in
consumption from major consumers such as China, India and the US.
Production now exceeds demand by about 2 million barrels per day,
adding to already high global oil stocks. Moody's natural gas and
natural gas liquids price assumptions are unchanged. Natural gas
production in the US continues to increase while costs decline and
producers generate cash returns at ever-lower prices, although in
many cases these appear insufficient to service their debt.

Lower oil prices will further weaken cash flows for exploration
and production companies and the upstream portion of integrated
oil and gas companies. This will cause further deterioration in
financial ratios, including deeper negative free cash flow. Most
companies are unable to internally fund sustaining levels of
capital spending at current market prices. Current industry
conditions also reduce the value of assets offered for sale and
have made accessing capital markets more expensive for some
companies and unavailable for others. While integrated oil and gas
companies benefit from the profitability of their downstream
operations, the upstream operations represent a much larger part
of the capital employed and cash flow for most of these companies.

Projected capex reductions by E&P and integrated companies will
severely challenge the drilling and oilfield services (OFS) sector
beyond what it had already experienced in 2015. Moody's expects
OFS sector EBITDA to drop by another 25%-30% in 2016, testing the
viability of the capital structures of many of these businesses.
Even if commodity prices recover, OFS companies are unlikely to
gain any pricing power because of the continued excess capacity
across most OFS subsectors. Moody's expects credit quality to
deteriorate for all OFS players in 2016. Smaller and more
leveraged OFS companies in particular will struggle to comply with
debt agreement covenants, service debt and access capital markets,
and will face an elevated risk of default. Even large, diversified
investment grade OFS companies will experience diminishing
financial flexibility and increasing financial leverage. Drillers
with significant contract expirations will also suffer material
credit degradation as contracts are either not renewed or are
renewed at rates that produce far less revenue.

Although all issuers in these sectors have been adversely affected
by declining prices, severity varies substantially by issuer.
Accordingly, the range of possible outcomes upon conclusion of the
review for given issuers varies from possible confirmation of
ratings to multi-notch downgrades. Multi-notch downgrades are
particularly likely among issuers whose activities are centered in
North America, where natural gas prices have declined dramatically
along with oil prices. Moody's expects to conclude a majority of
the reviews by the end of the first quarter.

BRAZIL: Economy Sheds 1.5 Million Payroll Jobs in 2015
------------------------------------------------------
Trinidad Express reports that Brazil's labor ministry says the
country lost 1.5 million payroll jobs in 2015 amid a contracting
economy that has led to high inflation and layoffs in the
manufacturing and service sectors.

The ministry said that 39.7 million workers were formally employed
at the end of last year, compared to 41.2 million at the end of
2014 and 40.8 million in 2013, according to Trinidad Express.

Labor Minister Miguel Rossetto said last year's job creation
figures are the worst since they started being compiled in 1992,
the report notes.

Most of the lost payroll jobs were in the industrial and civil
construction sectors, the report relays.

The only positive job creation figures were posted by the
agricultural sector, where close to 10,000 new positions were
opened, the report adds.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
Dec. 21, 2015, Fitch Ratings has downgraded Brazil's ratings:

   -- Long-term foreign and local currency Issuer Default Ratings
      (IDRs) to 'BB+' from 'BBB-', Outlook remains Negative;

   -- Senior unsecured foreign and local currency bonds to 'BB+'
      from 'BBB-';

   -- Short-term foreign currency IDR to 'B' from 'F3'.

TRANSCOM WORLDWIDE: Closes its Loss Making Site in Colombia
-----------------------------------------------------------
Transcom WorldWide AB will close its loss-making contact center in
Cali, Colombia, and the Board of Directors is evaluating strategic
alternatives for the company's remaining Latin American business
in Chile and Peru.  Since 2013, Transcom has generated losses in
Latin America totaling EUR15.1 million.  Out of this amount,
EUR4.2 million is attributable to Colombia.  In the first nine
months of 2015, losses in Latin America totaled EUR3.2 million,
EUR1.6 million of which refers to Colombia.  Stopping these losses
is a key priority in 2016.  A non-recurring EUR2.2 million
restructuring cost related to the closure of the Cali site in
Colombia will be recorded in Q4 2015.  Out of this amount, EUR1.4
million is a non-cash charge (write-down of assets), and EUR0.8
million is a cash cost.

Transcom is also announcing a number of changes to its regional
and management structure. This realignment will improve efficiency
and further streamline Transcom's global business operations, as
well as focus the organization's resources on prioritized growth
areas. Annual cost savings to be realized as a result of these
actions are estimated at EUR2.9 million, and are expected to take
full effect in the fourth quarter of 2016. Further efficiency
gains in addition to these direct cost savings are expected to be
realized in the coming years, supporting Transcom's mid-term
financial objectives. A non-recurring restructuring cost amounting
to approximately EUR2.7 million, related to the organizational
changes described below, will be recorded in the first quarter of
2016.

The following changes will be made to Transcom's regional
structure, i.e. the company's operating segments:

A new region, Continental Europe, will combine our operations in
Spain and Portugal with the former Central & South Europe region
(excluding the United Kingdom). Roberto Boggio has been appointed
General Manager of this new region.  A new region, English-
speaking markets and APAC, will integrate the UK organization
with our operations in North America & Asia Pacific. Siva
Subramaniam has been appointed General Manager of this new
region. Region North Europe will remain unchanged, led by
Christian Hulten. รบ Transcom's assets in Chile and Peru,
currently under strategic review, will be managed separately,
reporting to the President & CEO, Johan Eriksson.

Following the changes described above, Transcom's global business
will be managed within three operating units, in addition to the
Latin American organization currently under review: North Europe,
Continental Europe, and English-speaking markets & APAC. Starting
in the Q1 2016 interim report, Transcom's segment reporting will
reflect this change. Pro forma comparable figures for Transcom's
new segment reporting structure will be released before the
publication of Q1 2016 results.

Johan Eriksson, President & CEO of Transcom, commented:

"The fact that we are exiting Colombia and that we are evaluating
strategic alternatives for Transcom's business in Chile and Peru
reflects a major shift in market conditions. Macroeconomic changes
in the last couple of years have negatively affected the viability
of Latin American contact centers as an offshore delivery solution
for clients in Spain. In response, we have focused on
repositioning our Latin American business towards serving domestic
clients. While we have won a number of new clients, results are
still unsatisfactory. Transcom is a marginal player in Latin
America, and we have chosen to focus on other markets, where our
potential for generating profitable growth is greater.

"In connection with the changes announced, Isabel Sanchez-Lozano,
General Manager for the former Iberia & Latam region, will leave
Transcom. I would like to thank her for her contributions to
developing Transcom since joining the company in 2011.

"We are also making a number of organizational changes in order to
simplify our regional structure. This will yield cost advantages
as well as enhance the opportunity to drive standardization and
efficiency across our global business, placing us in a good
position to reach our mid-term financial targets. Important focus
areas in the coming years are to ensure that we have efficient and
effective regional and corporate functions, that our sites deliver
superior performance through operational excellence, that we excel
in contract and account management, and that we win long-term
profitable business in line with Transcom's commercial and
operational set-up."

DOMINICAN REPUBLIC: Places 'Junk' Bond of US$1 Billion
------------------------------------------------------
Dominican Today reports that the government of the Dominican
Republic placed a 'junk-rated' sovereign bond of US$1.0 billion in
the capitals market, funds that will partly finance this year's
budget.

The report notes that the Finance Ministry said "despite the
global volatile, the government issued the 10-year sovereign at a
rate of 6.875%."

"Despite the volatility that has characterized the international
financial markets since the beginning of the year, the placement
was successful and the total demand for the Dominican Sovereign
Bond was well above the amount offered by the country," the
Finance Ministry added, notes the report.

"To achieve these results, investors valued the excellent economic
performance that the country has had in the last 12 months, with
the economy in Latin America of greater economic growth, with one
of the lowest inflation rates; and a process of fiscal
consolidation that led fiscal accounts to have a primary surplus
at the end of last year," the Finance Ministry said in a press
release obtained by the news agency.

It adds that investors have also taken into account the great
positive impact it has had on the country reducing oil prices in
the international market, the report notes.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
Dec. 3, 2015, Fitch Ratings affirmed the Dominican Republic's
long-term foreign and local currency Issuer Default Ratings (IDRs)
at 'B+'.  The Rating Outlooks on the long-term IDRs are revised to
Positive from Stable. The issue ratings on the Dominican
Republic's senior unsecured foreign and local currency bonds are
affirmed at 'B+'. The Country Ceiling is affirmed at 'BB-' and the
short-term foreign currency IDR at 'B'.

HIPOTECARIA SU CASITA: Moody's Cuts Class A Notes Rating to B3(sf)
------------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has downgraded the rating of Hipotecaria
Su Casita - Cross-border Class A Insured Residential Mortgage
Backed Floating Rate Notes, a Mexican RMBS guaranteed by MBIA
Insurance Corp. This rating action follows the recent downgrade of
the ratings of the financial guarantor MBIA Insurance Corporation
(MBIA).

The rating action is as follows:

Issuer: CIBanco S.A Institucion de Banca Multiple, acting solely
as trustee.

-- Hipotecaria Su Casita - Cross-border, Class A Insured
   Residential Mortgage Backed Floating Rate Notes, rating
   downgraded to B3 (sf) from B2 (sf) (Global Scale, Foreign
   Currency) and placed under review for possible downgrade. The
   notes' underlying rating (reflecting the notes' intrinsic
   credit quality absent the financial guarantee provided by MBIA)
   is currently Caa3 (sf), on review for downgrade.

This action is driven solely by Moody's announcement on 19 January
2016 that it has downgraded the Insurance Financial Strength (IFS)
ratings of MBIA Insurance Corporation.

RATINGS RATIONALE

The Hipotecaria Su Casita Cross-border Class A Insured Residential
Mortgage Backed Floating Rate Notes benefit from a financial
guaranty insurance policy issued by MBIA Insurance Corp. that
covers timely interest payment and ultimate principal payment by
the legal final maturity date of the notes.

Moody's ratings on structured finances securities that are
guaranteed or "wrapped" by a financial guarantor are generally
maintained at a level equal to the higher of the following: (1)
the guarantor's insurance financial strength rating and (2) the
underlying ratings, which reflect the intrinsic credit quality of
the certificates in the absence of the guarantee

FACTORS THAT WOULD LEAD TO AN UPGRADE OR DOWNGRADE OF THE RATING:

Any change in MBIA's IFS rating would result in a change in the
ratings of the affected certificates.

RATING METHODOLOGY

This action is driven solely by the rating action on MBIA and is
not a result of change in key assumptions, expected losses, cash
flows and stress scenarios on the underlying assets.


MINERA FRISCO: Moody's Reviews B2/Ba1.mx CFR for Downgrade
----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's de Mexico, S.A. de C.V. (Moody's) placed the ratings of
Minera Frisco, S.A.B. de C.V. (Minera Frisco) on review for
downgrade. The rating action follows Moody's Investors Service
rating action on January 21, 2016 that has placed the ratings of 9
mining companies in Latin America, and their rated subsidiaries,
on review for downgrade. For further information, please refer to
the press release dated January 21, 2016 and posted on
www.moodys.com

The following ratings are placed on Review for Downgrade:

Issuer: Minera Frisco, S.A.B. De C.V.

-- Corporate Family Rating, B2/Ba1.mx, Placed on Review for
    Downgrade

-- Senior Unsecured Short-Term portion of its Local dual Program,
    NP/MX-4, Placed on Review for Downgrade

    (P)B3/B1.mx, Placed on Review for Downgrade

-- Senior Unsecured Certificados Bursatiles, Placed on Review for
    Downgrade, currently B3/B1.mx

The actions reflect Moody's effort to recalibrate the ratings in
the mining portfolio to align with the fundamental shift in the
credit conditions of the global mining sector.

"Slowing growth in China, which consumes and produces at least
half of base metals, and is a material player in the precious
metals, iron ore and metallurgical coal markets is weakening
demand for these commodities and driving prices to multi-year
lows," said Sandra Beltr n, Moody's Assistant Vice President -
Analyst "China's outsized influence on the commodities market,
coupled with the need for significant recalibration of supply to
bring the industry back into balance indicates that this is not a
normal cyclical downturn, but a fundamental shift that will place
an unprecedented level of stress on mining companies."

RATINGS RATIONALE

As part of an ongoing assessment of mining companies, Moody's
sharply reduced its price sensitivity assumptions on December 8,
2015. Since then, credit conditions in the mining industry have
weakened further, with prices continuing to decline. The
likelihood has increased that prices for base metals, precious
metals, iron ore and metallurgical coal will approach levels
closer to Moody's stressed sensitivity scenario. In addition, the
strong US dollar is a further factor contributing to weakening
demand and driving prices lower since most metals are traded in
dollars.

This broad ratings review will consider each mining company's
asset base, cost structure, likely cash burn and liquidity, as
well as management's strategy for coping with a prolonged downturn
and the ability to execute on same. The review will assess each
company's cash flow and credit metrics closer to our latest
stressed price assumptions and the relative rating positioning.

Moody's believes that this downturn will mark an unprecedented
shift for the mining industry. Whereas previous downturns have
been cyclical, the effect of slowing growth in China indicates a
fundamental change that will heighten credit risk for mining
companies. This review reflects the belief that deteriorating
industry fundamentals require a recalibration of the global mining
portfolio rated by Moody's. Although all issuers in these sectors
have been adversely affected by declining prices, severity varies
substantially by issuer. Accordingly, the range of possible
outcomes upon conclusion of the review for given issuers varies
from possible confirmation of ratings to multi-notch downgrades.
Moody's expects to conclude a majority of the reviews by the end
of the first quarter. While this review focuses on companies rated
in the range from A1 to B3, Moody's is also reevaluating higher
and lower rated companies in the context of industry conditions.
The higher rated companies, on average, are somewhat more
resilient to low commodity prices and many of the lower rated
companies have recently been downgraded.


* MEXICO: Finance Secretary Says Peso is Clearly Undervalued
------------------------------------------------------------
EFE News reports that Mexico's finance secretary said that the
peso was clearly undervalued under any type of measurement and
that the national currency should stabilize once the current
market "overreaction" subsides.

In an interview with Mexico City daily El Financiero on the
sidelines of the World Economic Forum, which got underway in
Davos, Switzerland, Luis Videgaray said that under the current
global scenario the sharp depreciation of oil-rich Mexico's
currency and that of other commodity exporters was "to be
expected," according to EFE News.

"This overreaction we're seeing will eventually have to dissipate,
and the markets will recognize the countries that have solid
fundamentals, as is the case of Mexico," Mr. Videgaray said, the
report notes.

The depreciation of the Mexican peso against the dollar "is not
carrying over to prices; inflation remains at historically low
levels and with very well-anchored expectations," the report
relays.

The Mexican government, therefore, sees no immediate need for
additional adjustments to public spending, he said, adding that
"the strength of Mexico's Treasury is not at risk," the report
discloses.

The balance sheet of Mexican state-owned oil company Petroleos
Mexicanos also is "extraordinarily strong because of its
hydrocarbon reserves," Mr. Videgaray said, the report notes.

Mr. Videgaray termed the plunge in oil prices, down more than 20
percent since the start of the year, and the stock-market turmoil
as a global problem stemming from "risk aversion," the report
relays.

"Investors today don't want to take risks of any kind," Mr.
Videgaray said, ruling out the danger of a new global recession,
the report notes.

"I really don't (see it), because the drop in oil prices serves as
a stimulus for some of the world's leading economies, particularly
for the U.S.," the secretary said, though he acknowledged that
some countries "are facing growth challenges," Mr. Videgaray
added, says the report.

BKH ACQUISITION: S&P Assigns 'B-' CCR, Outlook Negative
-------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its 'B-' corporate
credit rating to BKH Acquisition Corp.  The outlook is negative.

"We affirmed our 'B-' issue-level ratings on the company's $10
million revolver and $142.2 million first-lien term loan.  The
recovery rating is '3', indicating our expectation for meaningful
recovery of principal in the event of a payment default at the
high end of the 50% to 70% range.  We also affirmed our 'CCC'
issue-level rating on the company's $50 million second-lien term
loan.  The recovery rating is '6', indicating our expectation for
negligible recovery (0% to 10%) of principal in the event of a
payment default," S&P said.

S&P previously withdrew its 'B-' corporate credit rating on
subsidiary Caribbean Restaurants LLC.

"Our assessment of BKH's business risk profile reflects its
concentrated operations of Burger King restaurants in economically
challenged Puerto Rico, participation in the overall intensely
competitive quick service restaurant (QSR) environment, and
limited brand diversity," said credit analyst Olya Naumova.
"Although BKH enjoys leading market share position in Puerto Rico,
the company closed two Burger King stores per year since 2014 and
now projects closing two to three restaurants per year going
forward.   The assessment also incorporates the company's ability
to maintain its leading QSR market share and proactively manage
its costs over the coming year."

The negative outlook on BKH reflects S&P's expectation that weak
economic conditions in Puerto Rico and uncertainty around the
possible congressional bankruptcy legislature will continue to
pressure already volatile performance in the next 12 months.  The
company's second-lien partial PIK debt and high interest expense
will further burden company's interest coverage and leverage
ratios.

S&P would lower the ratings if significant contraction in Puerto
Rico's economy and subsequent diminishing purchasing power of its
population together with high competitive pressures lead to "less
than adequate" liquidity and inadequate covenant headroom.  This
could happen if same-store sales decline 10%, gross margin further
shrinks 200 basis points, and the interest coverage ratio remains
at or below 1.0x.

An upgrade is unlikely in the coming year.  S&P could revise the
outlook back to stable if the company improves its operating
performance through continued revenue and comparable store growth
leading to stable credit metrics.  Stabilization or improvement in
the local economy together with an ability to expand gross margins
and deleverage at least one to two turns would be necessary for
this outcome.

SPANISH BROADCASTING: Attiva Capital No Longer Owns Class A Shares
------------------------------------------------------------------
In a Schedule 13D filed with the Securities and Exchange
Commission, Attiva Capital Partners Ltd disclosed that as of Jan.
19, 2016, it does not beneficially own shares of Class A common
stock of Spanish Broadcasting Systems, Inc.  A copy of the
regulatory filing is available for free at:

                     http://is.gd/YjyRWm

                    About Spanish Broadcasting

Headquartered in Coconut Grove, Florida, Spanish Broadcasting
operates 21 radio stations targeting the Hispanic audience.  The
Company also owns and operates Mega TV, a television operation
with over-the-air, cable and satellite distribution and affiliates
throughout the U.S. and Puerto Rico.  Its revenue for the twelve
months ended Sept. 30, 2010, was approximately $140 million.

Spanish Broadcasting reported a net loss of $20.0 million on $146
million of net revenue for the year ended Dec. 31, 2014, compared
with a net loss of $88.6 million on $154 million of net revenue in
2013.

As of Sept. 30, 2015, the Company had $457 million in total
assets, $551 million in total liabilities and a total
stockholders' deficit of $94 million.

                           *     *     *

In November 2010, Moody's Investors Service upgraded the corporate
family and probability of default ratings for Spanish Broadcasting
System, Inc., to 'Caa1' from 'Caa3' based on improved free cash
flow prospects due to better than anticipated cost cutting and the
expiration of an unprofitable interest rate swap agreement.
Moody's said Spanish Broadcasting's 'Caa1' corporate family rating
incorporates its weak capital structure, operational pressure in
the still cyclically weak economic climate, generally narrow
growth prospects (though Spanish language is the strongest growth
prospect) given the maturity and competitive pressures in the
radio industry, and the June 2012 maturity of its term loan
magnify this challenge.

In July 2010, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services raised its
corporate credit rating on Miami, Fla.-based Spanish Broadcasting
System Inc. to 'B-' from 'CCC+', based on continued improvement in
the company's liquidity position.  The rating outlook is stable.
"The rating action reflects S&P's expectation that, despite very
high leverage, SBS will have adequate liquidity over the
intermediate term to meet debt maturities, potential swap
settlements, and operating needs until its term loan matures on
June 11, 2012," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Michael
Altberg.

CL FINANCIAL: Calls for Imbert to Disclose Info on Bailout
----------------------------------------------------------
Trinidad Express reports that two interest groups are asking
Finance Minister Colm Imbert to disclose the financial statements
of failed conglomerate CL Financial Limited.

The Trinidad and Tobago Transparency Institute (TTTI) said in a
statement it recalled that, in July last year, Justice Ronnie
Boodoosingh ruled that the Minister of Finance and the Economy was
obliged to provide information relating to CL Financial's
financial statements, its creditors and a briefing presentation to
the Parliament, according to Trinidad Express.

The ruling followed denial of requests for information made by
Joint Consultative Council past president Afra Raymond under the
Freedom of Information Act, the report notes.

                         About CL Financial

CL Financial Limited is a privately held conglomerate in Trinidad
and Tobago.  Founded as an insurance company by Cyril Duprey,
Colonial Life Insurance Company was expanded into a diversified
company by his nephew, Lawrence Duprey.  CL Financial is now one
of the largest local conglomerates in the region, encompassing
over 65 companies in 32 countries worldwide with total assets
standing at roughly US$100 billion.  Colonial Life Insurance
Company Ltd. (CLICO) is a member of the CL Financial Group.

                           *     *     *

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on Aug.
6, 2015, Trinidad Express said the Constitution Reform
Forum (CRF) has called on Finance Minister Larry Howai to refrain
from embarking on an "unnecessary drain on the Treasury" by
appealing the decision of a High Court judge, who ordered that the
Minister fulfil a request by president of the Joint Consultative
Council (JCC) Afra Raymond for financial details relating to the
bailout of CL Financial Limited.  The CRF issued a release stating
that if the decision is appealed, not only will it be a waste of
finance but such a course of action will also demonstrate a "lack
of commitment by the Government to the spirit and intent of the
Freedom of Information Act FOIA", under which the request was
made, according to Trinidad Express.

On July 7, 2014, Trinidad Express said that the Central Bank has
placed the responsibility of voluntary separation package (VSEP)
negotiations for workers at insurance giant Colonial Life
Insurance Company Ltd. (CLICO) with the company's board, after
which it will review accordingly, the bank said in a statement.
The bank's statement follows protest action by CLICO workers,
supported by their union, the Banking, Insurance and General
Workers' Union (BIGWU), outside the Central Bank in Port of Spain,
according to Trinidad Express.

In a separate TCRLA report on June 26, 2014, Caribbean360.com said
that the Trinidad and Tobago government has welcomed an Appeal
Court ruling that the Attorney General Anand Ramlogan said saves
the country from paying out more than TT$1 billion (TT$1 = US$0.16
cents) to policyholders of the cash-strapped CLICO.  The Appeal
Court overturned the ruling of a High Court that ruled members of
the United Policyholders Group (UPG) were entitled to be paid the
full sums of their polices. CLICO financially caved in on itself
at the end of 2008 after the investment instruments of major
policyholders matured and they wanted hundreds of millions of
dollars they were owed.

On Aug. 6, 2013, the TCR-LA, citing Caribbean360.com, said that
over TT$8 billion worth of CLICO's profitable business will be
transferred to Atruis, a new company that will be owned by the
state.  The Trinidad Express said that the Cabinet approved the
transfer as the Finance and General Purposes Committee continues
to discuss a letter of intent hammered out by the Ministry of
Finance and CL Financial's 400 shareholders, which envisions
taxpayers will recover the more than TT$20 billion Government has
injected since 2009 to keep CL subsidiary CLICO and other
companies afloat.

At its annual general meeting in Sept. 2013, CL Financial
shareholders voted to extend the agreement with Government until
August 25, 2014, while Cabinet decides on a new framework accord
to recover the debt owed to Government through divestment of CL
subsidiaries, including Methanol Holdings, Republic Bank,
Angostura Holdings, CL World Brands and Home Construction Ltd.,
Caribbean360.com related.  Proceeds from the divestment of these
assets will go toward Government's recovery of the billions it
pumped into CLICO.

TCRLA reported on Sep 22, 2011, Caribbean News Now, citing
Reuters, saidd that the cost of the Trinidad and Tobago
government bailout of CL Financial Limited is likely to rise to
more than TT$3 billion.

LATAM: Moody's Puts 9 Mining Firms on Review for Downgrade
----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has placed the ratings of 9 mining
companies in Latin America, and their rated subsidiaries, on
review for downgrade.

The actions reflect Moody's effort to recalibrate the ratings in
the mining portfolio to align with the fundamental shift in the
credit conditions of the global mining sector.

"Slowing growth in China, which consumes and produces at least
half of base metals, and is a material player in the precious
metals, iron ore and metallurgical coal markets is weakening
demand for these commodities and driving prices to multi-year
lows," said Barbara Mattos, Moody's Vice President and Senior
Credit Officer. "China's outsized influence on the commodities
market, coupled with the need for significant recalibration of
supply to bring the industry back into balance indicates that this
is not a normal cyclical downturn, but a fundamental shift that
will place an unprecedented level of stress on mining companies."

                            ***********


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.
