ARGENTINA: President Says Over $35 Billion Invested in Projects
---------------------------------------------------------------
EFE News reports that President Mauricio Macri said that $35
billion had been invested in "hundreds" of new business projects
in Argentina since he took office in December.

"More than $35 billion in projects have been launched," President
Macri said during the opening of a new distribution center
belonging to Drogueria del Sud, the largest drugstore chain in
Argentina, according to EFE News.

"This is not an economic change, but a cultural one," the
president said at the distribution center in Avellaneda, a city in
Buenos Aires province, the report notes.

The late founder of Drogueria del Sud, Silvio Macchiavello,
promoted "trust" in the workplace and passed on these values to
his daughters, who now run the company," President Macri said, the
report relays.

The new distribution center reflects what is possible when there
is a combination of Argentine human resources and "the best
technology in the world," President Macri said, the report
discloses.

Argentina will become "a little better" each day once every
citizen understands that when they create obstacles to getting
work done, they "complicate the lives of others," President Macri
added, notes the report.

Buenos Aires Gov. Maria Eugenia Vidal said the new center would
show how capable Argentines are because now they will have "the
most modern distribution plant in Latin America," the report adds.

                           *     *     *

On April 19, 2016, the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America
reported that Moody's Investors Service upgraded on April 15,
2016, Argentina's government bond rating to B3 from Caa1, with the
outlook changed to stable from positive.  The key drivers for the
upgrade are (i) Moody's expectation that Argentina will settle
holdout creditor claims which will result in a lifting of court
injunctions and clear the way for Argentina to access
international capital markets, as well as the likelihood that
Argentina will make payments to restructured bondholders increased
significantly following an April 13, US circuit court ruling in
favor of Argentina, and (ii) the economic policy improvements
since Mauricio Macri's administration took office last December.
The new government lifted capital controls and allowed the peso to
float more freely, reduced energy and transportation subsidies and
has begun to address longstanding macroeconomic imbalances.

As previously reported by the TCR-LA, Argentina defaulted on some
of its debt late July 30, 2014, after expiration of a 30-day grace
period on a US$539 million interest payment.  Earlier that day,
talks with a court-appointed mediator ended without resolving a
standoff between the country and a group of hedge funds seeking
full payment on bonds that the country had defaulted on in 2001.
A U.S. judge had ruled that the interest payment couldn't be made
unless the hedge funds led by Elliott Management Corp., got the
US$1.5 billion they claimed. The country hasn't been able to
access international credit markets since its US$95 billion
default 13 years ago.

On March 30, 2016, after more than 12 hours of debate in the
Senate, Argentina's Congress passed a bill that will allow the
government to repay holders of debt that the South American
country defaulted on in 2001, including a group of litigating
hedge funds that won judgments in a New York court. The bill
passed by a vote of 54-16.

On March 24, 2016, Fitch Ratings upgraded Argentina's Long-
term local-currency Issuer Default Rating (LT LC IDR) to 'B' from
'CCC', with a Stable Outlook. Fitch has affirmed Argentina's Long-
term foreign-currency (FC) IDR at 'RD' and the short-term FC IDR
at 'RD'. In addition, Fitch has upgraded the Country Ceiling to
'B' from 'CCC'.

BAHA MAR: Prime Minister Silent as Megaresort Crisis Drags On
-------------------------------------------------------------
Royston Jones Jr. at Caribbean News Now reports that nearly a
month after Bahamas Prime Minister Perry Christie said the Export-
Import Bank of China (EXIM) should be in a position to announce a
new buyer for bankrupt megaresort Baha Mar within a "few weeks",
Mr. Christie refused to answer questions about the derailed
project.

On local radio on July 19, Mr. Christie said, "We are closer to a
resolution with the project than we have ever been before,
according to Caribbean News Now.

The report notes that Mr. Christie said: "Events are taking place
rapidly.  I think the next few weeks in the scheme of things in
our country will be important weeks when it comes to the final
decision making with respect to Baha Mar.

"I think the bank, that is the China Export-Import Bank, is ready
to present a possible buyer to us.

"We would need to know who that is, so we are able to begin
investigations.

"The bank would have only chosen someone with an incredible
capacity to finance [a] $2.5 billion deal and finish it.

"So, these things are in progress.

"I think we are closer than we have ever been before."

At the time, Mr. Christie professed that "better days are coming,"
the report relays.  However, when asked about Baha Mar and its new
buyer, Mr. Christie declined to comment.

When pressed for a response outside the House of Assembly, Mr.
Christie said, "We are close.  Soon," the report notes.

It is an expression the prime minister has used repeatedly in
relation to Baha Mar, the report relays.

Last December, Mr. Christie said he expected a "major move" that
could see the troubled project completed "early in the new year,"
the report says.  But Baha Mar remains shuttered and in
receivership.

When contacted about a possible new buyer, Baha Mar's receiver-
manager Ray Winder, managing partner of Deloitte & Touche, said
there was nothing new to report, Caribbean News relays.

Members of the opposition have said the Christie administration
has proven to be "incompetent, delusional and asleep at the wheel"
in dealing with the troubled project, notes the report.

In May, Mr. Christie announced that EXIM and China State
Construction Engineering Corporation (CSCEC) had entered into a
"framework agreement" to remobilize construction to complete Baha
Mar, the report says.

Mr. Christie has repeatedly said the government is committed to
providing all necessary assistance required for remobilization and
completion of the project, which included the establishment of a
task force in the Office of the Prime Minister to "enable proper
coordination between government agencies," the report notes.

It is unclear whether that task force was created and what role if
any it would serve, adds Caribbean News.

Last month, Granite Ventures, one of Baha Mar developer Sarkis
Izmirlian's holding companies, filed in the Bahamian Supreme Court
to have Baha Mar fully liquidated, something Christie previously
called a "chilling prospect," the report relays.

The next substantive winding up hearing for Baha Mar is set for
September 30, the report notes.  The full liquidation application
is expected to be reviewed during that hearing.

Izmirlian filed for Chapter 11 protection in Delaware on June 29,
2015.

The government made a counter move in Bahamian courts.

All of the Chapter 11 cases have since been dismissed, the report
adds.

Enterprises Ltd., and their affiliates sought protection under

BANCO BTG: Fitch Affirms 'BB-' Long-term Issuer Default Ratings
---------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed Banco BTG Pactual S.A. (BTG Pactual)
and its related entities' ratings and removed them from Rating
Watch Negative. A Negative Outlook was assigned to Banco BTG
Pactual, BTG Investments LP and BTG Pactual Holding S.A.'s Long-
Term Issuer Default Ratings (LT IDRs). A Negative Outlook was also
assigned to Banco Pan and its subsidiaries (Brazilian Finance &
Real Estate S.A. [BFRE]), mirroring the outlook of its main source
of support, Caixa Economica Federal (Caixa). At the same time,
Fitch has affirmed BTG Pactual's national ratings at 'A-(bra)' and
Pan's national ratings at 'A+(bra)'. A Stable Outlook was assigned
to all National Long-Term Ratings. A full list of rating actions
follows at the end of this release.

KEY RATING DRIVERS

BTG Pactual Group (BTG Pactual, BTG Investments and BTG Pactual
Holding)

The removal of the rating of BTG Pactual from Rating Watch
Negative reflects Fitch's recognition of the stabilization of the
bank's liquidity, its comfortable capitalization and the
successful management of its crisis situation. Its financial
profile remains solid with good earnings generation, controlled
asset quality while signs of a slow rebuilding of its funding
franchise can already be perceived. As such, Fitch believes that
no further deterioration of its ratings and risk profile are
expected and Rating Watch Negative is no longer necessary.

Management has demonstrated its ability to address its liquidity
crisis, by building a large liquidity cushion, reducing the bank's
leverage and addressing concerns regarding possible implications
of rumoured suspicious transactions through a thorough review made
by a legal counsel formed by leading law firms, consultants and
investigators that were hired by independent members of its
Administrative Board.

The review found no evidence of any wrongdoing or any potential
exposure to litigations stemming from these transactions. This has
somehow helped the bank to isolate itself from the accusations
faced by its main controller and former CEO, which are now being
reviewed by a lower court after being transferred from Brazil's
Supreme Court after former Senator Delcidio do Amaral was
impeached due to his involvement in this scandal. A resolution on
Mr. Esteves case given this change could take longer than
previously anticipated.

The Negative Outlook assigned to BTG Pactual's IDRs capture the
challenges imposed by the current operating environment, which in
Fitch's view continues to present a negative trend.

From a corporate governance standpoint, the bank took measures to
address the negative impacts on its franchise, caused by the
arrest of its former CEO and main shareholder, Andre Esteves. The
steps included well-succeed reorganization of its ownership
structure, reducing Mr. Esteves power to return to the bank
without the concurrence of the group of main partners.

The asset sale of non-core assets was also successful and helped
to improve the bank's liquidity position and should help it to
repay the remaining portion of the funding facility obtained with
FGC during the liquidity crisis. The current exposure stands at
BRL1.8 billion and should be fully repaid once the sale of BSI is
finalized.

In terms of risk appetite and credit risk exposures, an active
sale of loan portfolios at market prices helped to restore the
bank's liquidity but also reduced the bank's credit risk exposure
to some sensitive names at an opportune time as credit profiles of
several large corporate names have deteriorated over the year.

The reduction of BTG's global markets and merchant banking
exposures at the group level were already part of the group's
strategic plan and were accelerated by the push to improve
liquidity levels and bode well in terms of reducing the bank's
risk exposures and leverage.

SUBSIDIARIES AND AFFILIATED COMPANIES
PAN, BFRE, BM, BS

Pan and its subsidiaries LT IDRs were affirmed at 'BB-' and its
Rating Watch Negative was also removed, following BTG's Negative
Rating Watch removal announced. The long-term International
ratings Outlook is now Negative, mirroring that of Caixa's IDRs,
its main source of support, which in turn is aligned with the
outlook for Brazil's sovereign ratings. Pan's ratings are notched
one level from Caixa LT IDRs.

Pan's Viability Rating (VR) at 'b' factors in that the bank's
business plan has been largely constrained over the last years by
the weak operating environment, which has limited a complete
turnaround of its operating performance. The operational losses
also stem from Pan's heavy legacy costs, which include expensive
funding structures.

An unfavourable market scenario has further deteriorated and not
allowed the bank to grow as fast as necessary to achieve targeted
profitability improvements. In fact, the economic recession
scenario has led to additional cost control measures, such as the
reduction of the number of executives, aimed at matching the
bank's team to a continued weak economic environment, which should
have a positive effect on the bank's results in the medium term.

Fitch believes that Pan's subsidiaries (BFRE, BM and BS) will also
receive the same support from Caixa in case of need. This is
justified by the subsidiaries' active role, synergies and full
integration with Pan. BFRE, BM and BS are fully owned subsidiaries
of Pan that operate in an integrated manner with the bank and are
fully consolidated in the bank, being subject to same regulatory
oversight.

RATING SENSITIVITIES

BTG Pactual Group's IDRs and VR

The potential for an upgrade on BTG Pactual's IDRs is limited in
the short and medium term due to the challenges imposed by the
current operating environment.

The bank's ratings could be downgraded in case of a steep
deterioration of its profitability metrics to levels below an
operating profit ROAA of 1% and Fitch Core Capital falls below
10%.

Though there is a lower risk of this scenario materializing, BTG
Pactual's ratings could be downgraded in the event of any
accusation of wrongdoings and/or official investigations are
unveiled related to the bank's business and operations that result
in pressures on the bank's reputation and further weaken its
franchise and financial profile.

BTG Pactual Group's National Ratings

BTG Pactual's National Ratings could be revised in the near term
depending on the stabilization of the improvements already
observed on its financial profile, mainly considering its funding
and liquidity profile and maintenance of its profitability.

Pan and Subsidiaries

Pan's IDRs could be downgraded if Caixa reduces its ability or
propensity to provide support to Pan. Changes in funding and
credit sales agreements provided by Caixa, or in Pan's
shareholder's structure, could also trigger a negative rating
action. Also, changes on the sovereign rating that lead to changes
in Caixa's ratings would directly affect Pan's IDRs.

In addition, Pan's ratings will remain sensitive to those of BTG,
as the latter continues to equally share control of Pan meaning
that potential downgrades of BTG's ratings can impact Pan's
ratings, too - which is not our current base case scenario.

A downgrade to Pan's VR could be triggered by successive net
losses combined with a backdrop of capital ratios falling to even
lower levels (Fitch Core Capital ratio stood at 8.7% in June
2016).

The following ratings were affirmed and have been removed from
Rating Watch Negative and where applicable the respective Outlooks
assigned:

BRB BANCO DE BRASILIA: Fitch Affirms 'B' ST Issuer Default Ratings
------------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed the Long-Term Issuer Default Ratings
(LT IDRs) of BRB - Banco de Brasilia S.A. and downgraded the
bank's Viability Rating (VR) to 'b+' from 'bb-'.

KEY RATING DRIVERS

IDRs, NATIONAL RATINGS AND SUPPORT RATINGS

BRB's IDRs and National Ratings are driven by support from its
controlling shareholder, the Government of Distrito Federal (GDF).

The affirmation of BRB's ratings reflect that the current rating
levels already take into account Fitch's internal assessment of
the Government of Distrito Federal (GDF).
BRB is strategically important for GDF as it acts as the state's
tax-collecting agent, carry out transfers to municipalities, and
is responsible for the cash management of the state. In addition,
BRB has relevant business with state public entities to which they
provide services and grant credit to suppliers and public
servants, via special payroll deductible loans.

The upgrade of the Support Rating to '3' from '4' reflects a
smaller differentiation between Fitch's internal analysis of the
parent and the support driven LT IDRs assigned to BRB, which is
consistent with Fitch's assessment of support according to its
criteria.

GDF holds 96.8% of BRB's voting shares. BRB's activities are
concentrated in the Federal District (DF), and it operates with a
network of 121 branches, which cover all of DF's administrative
regions.

VR

Fitch downgraded BRB's VR to 'b+' from 'bb-' due to the bank's
weak performance in 2015 and 1Q16, affected by a sharp increase in
credit costs, reflecting vulnerabilities of its asset quality. In
addition to that, the bank's capitalization should also suffer
from the weak internal capital generation.

BRB's VR reflects its regional importance and local franchise. The
bank's profitability has fallen sharply as a result of the
deterioration on the operating environment, the recovery of which
should be slow and gradual. As such, profitability and asset
quality remain under pressure as well as internal capital
generation.

On a positive note, the bank counts on good funding access through
its branch network and has maintained a good liquidity position.

RATING SENSITIVITIES

IDRS, NATIONAL RATINGS AND SUPPORT RATINGS

Fitch carries out internal analysis of GDF and BRB's IDRs.
National and Support Ratings are based on the expected support of
the state and are therefore strongly influenced by this analysis.
As such, any changes to GDF's financial strength that hampers its
ability to provide support or any change in Fitch's view about
GDF's propensity to provide support to BRB could lead to a change
on the bank's ratings.

VR

BRB's VR could be downgraded again if BRB's FCC ratio falls to
less than 7% and if the bank's Operating ROAA remains below 0.5%
for a prolonged period.

An upgrade of BRB's VR would be conditional to a sharp recovery on
its profitability to levels of Operating ROAA superior to 0.8% and
an improvement on FCC to levels above 10%.

Fitch has taken the following rating actions:

   BRB - Banco de Brasilia S.A

   -- Long-Term Local and Foreign Currency IDRs affirmed at 'BB-
      (bra)'; Outlook Negative;

   -- Short-Term Foreign and Local Currency IDRs affirmed at 'B'

   -- Long-Term National Rating downgraded to 'A+(bra)' from 'AA-
      (bra)', Outlook revised to Stable from Negative;

   -- Short-Term National Rating downgraded to 'F1(bra)' from
      'F1+(bra)';

   -- Support Rating upgraded to '3' from '4';

   -- Viability Rating downgraded to 'b+' from 'bb-'.


BANCO DO ESTADO: Fitch Affirms 'BB-' LT Issuer Default Ratings
--------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has downgraded Banco do Estado do Rio Grande do Sul
S.A.'s (Banrisul) Long-Term National Rating to 'A+(bra)' from 'AA-
(bra)'. The Outlook for the Long-Term National Rating is Negative.
Fitch has also affirmed the bank's Long-Term Foreign and Local
Currency IDRs (Issuer Default Ratings) at 'BB-'. The Outlook for
the IDRs remains Negative.

KEY RATING DRIVERS

The downgrade of Banrisul's national ratings reflects the
deterioration in its capitalization and profitability ratios, as a
result of its purchase of the exclusive rights to be provide
banking services to Estado do Rio Grande do Sul's (ERS) active and
retired employee base for a period of 10 years, for BRL1.3
billion, in June 2016. From 2007 until May 2016, Banrisul had an
exclusivity agreement with ERS free of charge to the bank.
Intangible assets resulting from this transaction has negatively
affected Banrisul's capitalization ratios, whereby its Fitch Core
Capital (FCC) declined to 13% in June 2016, from 14.8% in December
2015.

Fitch expects Banrisul's profitability ratios to remain under
pressure, although the bank has been posting higher net interest
margins since 2014. Similar to other public banks, Banrisul's
strategies and goals could be influenced by the economic-financial
situation and by the political guidelines of its main shareholder,
the government of ERS.

Banrisul's Viability Rating (VR) and its IDRs reflect the regional
importance of the bank, its stable retail funding base, and
adequate profitability and liquidity ratios. A potential
deterioration of the bank's asset quality could result in higher
provisioning expenses and undermine its profitability and internal
capital generation. The Negative Outlook for Banrisul's ratings
reflects Fitch's expectation of deterioration in the bank's asset
quality and capitalization, as a result of the ongoing challenges
to the financial profile of ERS. The bank's ratings are influenced
by Fitch's internal evaluation on ERS's credit standing.

The Support Rating '4' and the Support Rating Floor 'B' reflect
the limited possibility of support from the federal government in
a stress scenario, due to the relative systemic importance of
Banrisul. The bank ranked as the 11th largest financial
institution in the country, in terms of assets and the 8th in
terms of deposits, in March 2016. However, there are no explicit
guarantees of such support from the federal government.

During 2015 and in the first half of 2016, NPLs showed
deterioration, mainly in corporate credit and amounted to 4.8% of
the portfolio, in June 2016 (4.3% in 2015 and 3.4% in 2014).
Although in Fitch's view, the quality of Banrisul's loan portfolio
is still acceptable, the agency expects additional deterioration
along 2016.

Banrisul operates as a commercial bank, targeting both companies
and to individuals. It has a solid franchise in ERS, with 17% of
market share in credits and 47% in deposits. Credits to ERS
employees account for approximately 15% of the bank's credit
portfolio.

Banrisul's Debt

Financial Bills: The issuances of national unsecured debts rank
pari passu with the bank's other senior unsecured debts and their
ratings are in line with the bank's Long-Term National Rating.

Subordinated Tier 2 USD Notes: Banrisul's subordinated notes due
in January 2022 are rated 'B' by Fitch, two notches below the
bank's VR of 'bb-'. The notching includes one notch for loss
severity and the notes' subordinate position, and another notch
for the moderate risk of performance failure.

These notes rank pari passu with the other subordinated debts of
the bank and rely on a cumulative coupon deferral mechanism which
can be exercised in case the minimum regulatory capital
requirements are not met. These notes are being phased out, since
they are not Basel III compliant.

RATING SENSITIVITIES

Negative Rating Action: Banrisul ratings could be downgraded in
case of further weakening of asset quality ratios, with NPL
increase above 5%, or even, if FCC declines to less than 12%.
Furthermore, the bank's ratings could be impacted by changes to
the agency's view of ERS's credit standing, given the strong
operation of the bank in that state.

Positive Rating Action: Banrisul's Outlook could be revised to
Stable if the bank maintains adequate profitability, even in an
adverse economic environment, expressed by the Operating
Profit/Average Gross Assets ratio above 2%, together with good
asset quality ratios, NPLs around 3% and FCC of 14%.

FULL LIST OF RATING ACTIONS

Fitch has taken the following rating actions:

   -- Long-Term Foreign and Local Currency IDRs affirmed at 'BB-';
      Outlook Negative;

   -- Short-Term Foreign and Local Currency IDRs affirmed at 'B';

   -- Viability Rating affirmed at 'bb-';

   -- Support Rating affirmed at '4';

   -- Support Rating Floor affirmed at 'B';

   -- Long-Term National Rating downgraded to 'A+(bra)' from 'AA-
      (bra)'; Outlook Negative;

      (bra)';

   -- First issuance of senior unsecured credit facility financial
      bills downgraded to 'A+(bra)' from 'AA-(bra)';

   -- Tier II Capital subordinate notes, to be due in February
      2022, affirmed at 'B'.


BANESTES SA: Fitch Affirms 'BB-' Long-term Issuer Default Ratings
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed Banestes S.A. - Banco do Estado do
Espirito Santo's (Banestes) ratings.

KEY RATING DRIVERS

Banestes' Issuer Default Ratings (IDRs) are driven by its 'bb-'
Viability Rating (VR), which reflects the bank's regional
franchise, adequate overall financial profile with better-than-
its-peers earnings generation, liquidity and capitalization and
stable funding sources very similar to those of its regional
peers. The bank's asset quality is slightly inferior to its peers
mostly due to the composition of its loan book, which includes a
more representative SME lending portfolio, given the
characteristics of the companies operating in the state of
Espirito where the bank is located.

Banestes' business model relies on low-cost retail funding,
provided by its branch network, mainly in the state of Espirito
Santo. The bank counts on a reasonably well diversified product
offer that reduces its dependence on credit related revenues when
compared with its peers. The bank has also tried to cautiously
diversify its funding base by issuing Financial Bills (Letras
Financeiras) in the local market and increasing its funding in
real estate credit bills (LCIs).

A change in Fitch's internal analysis of Banestes' main
controlling shareholder, the Estado do Espirito Santo (EES), would
impact the bank's VR, as Fitch sees limited room for placing
Banestes' VR above its parent's internal assessment.

The Rating Outlook on the bank's Long-Term IDRs is Negative,
reflecting the fact that as a retail bank Banestes' VR would be
impacted by any additional deterioration of the operating
environment that could lead to a sovereign downgrade. Such a
scenario would also impact Fitch's internal analysis of EES and
consequently Banestes' VR and IDRs.

The Support Rating of '4' reflects a moderate probability of
support from its controlling shareholder, EES. In Fitch's opinion,
Banestes is strategically important for EES, acting as its main
tax-collecting agent, carrying out transfers to municipalities,
and is responsible for the state's cash management. In addition,
state public entities, which the bank provides services and grants
credit to suppliers, as well as special payroll deductible loans
to public servants, generates an important part of the bank's
business.

EES controls 92% of Banestes' capital. The bank's activities are
concentrated in EES, where it holds a market share of 46% of time
deposits and 15% of loan operations, with a network of 132
branches, in all of the state's 78 cities.

RATING SENSITIVITIES

Banestes' VR is sensitive to a change in Fitch's assumptions
regarding exposure to regional risk, capitalization and credit
quality. The VR could be downgraded if Banestes' credits past due
over 90 days rises above 6% and/or the Fitch Core Capital (FCC)
ratio falls below 10%.

Fitch's internal analysis on the State of Espirito Santo could
affect the bank's ratings. Therefore, Banestes' ratings would be
impacted by any change in these states' financial strength and/or
in its willingness to provide support to these subsidiaries.

Fitch affirms the following ratings:

   Banestes S.A. - Banco do Estado do Espirito Santo's (Banestes):

   -- Long-Term Foreign and Local Currency IDRs at 'BB-'; Outlook
      Negative;

   -- Short-Term Foreign and Local Currency IDRs at 'B';

   -- Long-Term National Rating at 'A+(bra)'; Outlook Stable;

   -- Short-Term National Rating at 'F1(bra)';

   -- Support Rating at '4';

   -- Viability Rating at 'bb-'.


BANRISUL: Fitch Affirms 'B' Short-term Issuer Default Ratings
-------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has taken various rating actions on the following
banks controlled by Brazilian subnationals:

   -- Banestes S.A. - Banco do Estado do Espirito Santo
      (Banestes),
   -- Banco do Estado de Sergipe (Banese)
   -- Banco do Estado do Rio Grande do Sul S.A. (Banrisul)
   -- Banco de Brasilia S.A. (BRB)).

The Issuer Default Ratings (IDRs) of Banestes and Banrisul and
Banese's National Rating are driven by their standalone
performance. BRB's IDRs are driven by support from Distrito
Federal. Fitch internally assesses the respective financial and
economic standing of each bank's controlling subnational, as their
main shareholders and given their strong performance in the region
of their controllers, such assessments can influence the ratings
of these public banks.

The credit profiles of these four banks remain highly sensitive to
further operating environment deteriorations in the respective
regions where their operations are concentrated. The Outlook for
Banrisul, Banestes and BRB's IDR is Negative. For Banese, Fitch
only assigns a National Rating. The Rating Outlook is currently
Negative due to the operating environment and the weakening of a
few performance ratios, after adjustments to the conglomerate's
card company.

These four institutions operate as commercial banks oriented both
to companies and to individuals. Their performance is strong in
the region of their controlling subnational. With strong
franchises, they offer a wide array of banking products that
allows them to compete in their regions against larger banks with
nationwide operations. These four banks heavily service public
servants in their regions and could be affected by any potential
difficulties faced by subnationals to pay their obligations.

Similar to other state-owned companies, the strategies and targets
of these four banks can be influenced by the state's economic-
financial situation and by political interference from their
respective main shareholders. However, Fitch notes that these four
banks are able to operate with relative autonomy. Governmental
changes for the controlling subnationals can lead to more frequent
changes in the four banks' executive boards than their private
peers.

As a general rule, the subnational banks have reduced their
appetite for risk, much like their private sector peers have. This
becomes evident in their growth trends, which have shown more
modest ratios than in the past. The asset quality indicators of
these four banks have deteriorated in 2015 and in the first
quarter of 2016. Fitch believes that the deterioration should
continue until end-2016, due to the continued economic recession
in Brazil and the controlling subnationals, maintenance of high
inflation and unemployment rates, as well as the weak outlook for
most corporate sectors.

Fitch has taken the following rating actions:

   Banrisul

   -- Long-Term Foreign and Local Currency IDRs affirmed at 'BB-';
      Outlook Negative;

   -- Short-Term Foreign and Local Currency IDRs affirmed at 'B';

   -- Viability Rating affirmed at 'bb-';

   -- Support Rating affirmed at '4';

   -- Support Rating Floor affirmed at 'B';

   -- Long-Term National Rating downgraded to 'A+(bra)' from
      'AA-(bra)'; Outlook Negative;

   -- Short-Term National Rating downgraded to 'F1 (bra)' from
      'F1+(bra)';

   -- Rating of the first issuance of senior unsecured financial
      bills downgraded to 'A+(bra)' from 'AA-(bra)';

   -- Rating of the Tier II capital subordinate notes, due in
      February 2022, affirmed at 'BB-'.

   BRB

   -- Long-Term Foreign and Local Currency IDRs affirmed at 'BB-';
      Outlook Negative;

   -- Viability Rating Downgrade to b+ from 'bb-' ;

   -- Support Rating Upgraded to '3' from '4';

   -- Long-Term National Rating downgraded to 'A+(bra)' from

   -- Short-Term National Rating affirmed at 'F3 (bra)';


ISA CAPITAL: Fitch Affirms 'BB+' Long-term Issuer Default Ratings
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed ISA Capital do Brasil S.A.'s (ISA
Capital) Long-Term Foreign and Local Currency Issuer Default
Ratings (IDRs) at 'BB+', and its National scale rating at
'AA+(bra)'. In addition, Fitch has affirmed the company's USD31.6
million outstanding senior secured notes at 'BBB-'. The Rating
Outlook for the Foreign Currency IDR is Negative, and Stable for
the Local Currency IDR and National Scale rating.

Concurrently, Fitch has upgraded Companhia de Transmissao de
Energia Eletrica Paulista S.A.'s (CTEEP) National scale rating to
'AAA(bra)' from 'AA+(bra)', with a Stable Outlook. The rating
action also applies to its first and fourth debenture issuances
due in 2017 and 2021, respectively.

KEY RATING DRIVERS

CTEEP's upgrade reflects Fitch's view that the company will
strengthen its financial profile in the coming years based on the
receipt of additional compensation of estimated BRL5-6 billion
mainly related to the early renewal of its main power transmission
concession at the beginning of 2013. CTEEP will receive this
amount over eight years starting in 2017 through its monthly
tariff. The agency expects net leverage below 2.0x from 2018
absent acquisitions and investments in new projects.

CTEEP's strong credit quality is attributable to the low business
risk of the power transmission sector in Brazil, with predictable
operating cash flow. The ratings also factored in the company's
necessity to maximize dividend distribution to help its
controlling shareholder ISA Capital to meet its obligations, as
well as the moderate regulatory risk of the Brazilian power
sector.

ISA Capital's ratings reflect the credit profile of CTEEP, its
sole operating asset and dividend source. ISA Capital's
obligations are structurally subordinated to CTEEP's. The holdco
only owns 37.3% of CTEEP's total capital and does not receive the
full amount of dividends paid by the transmission company. Fitch
considers that ISA Capital's financial flexibility may benefit
from the market value of its CTEEP shares in case dividends
received from CTEEP are not sufficient to meet its obligations.
Our analysis also does not consider any support from ISA Capital's
controlling shareholder Interconexion Electrica S.A. E.S.P. (ISA)
('BBB+'/Negative Outlook).

The one-notch rating uplift for ISA Capital outstanding bonds
reflects its enhanced recovery prospects due to the refinancing of
the majority of its debt with (subordinated, debt-like) preferred
equity. The 2017 bonds are currently overcollateralized. The
USD31.6 million (BRL114 million) of outstanding bonds is secured
by 66% of ISA Capital's shares of CTEEP, a stake which is
currently valued at approximately BRL2.3 billion based on CTEEP's
market cap value of BRL10.4 billion.

CTEEP's Robust Credit Metrics

Fitch expects CTEEP's financial leverage and liquidity to
continuously improve as a result of growing cash generation from
the additional compensation related to the early renewal of its
main concession and grid reinforcement investments related
revenue. Fitch views as positive the recent determination by the
Ministry of Mines and Energy that the amount of complementary
compensation for the concession renewal defined by the Brazilian
regulatory agency for the power sector (ANEEL) should be paid for
eight years, after the tariff review in July 2017. ANEEL has
already indicated an additional estimated minimum of BRL5 billion-
6 billion (BRL3.9 billion as of 2012).

Net leverage should remain below 2.0x after 2017, also benefitting
from the release of corporate guarantees to non-controlling
subsidiaries. For the latest 12 months (LTM) ended June 30, 2016,
CTEEP's total adjusted debt (including BRL1.4 billion guarantees
to non-controlling subsidiaries) was BRL2.5 billion, leading to
total adjusted debt-to-EBITDA ratio of 4.4x, or 3.7x considering
net adjusted debt.

Increasing Operational Cash Flow

CTEEP's cash flow generation is very predictable, exhibiting the
low business risk profile of a power transmission company. CTEEP's
revenues are exempt from volumetric risk as its maximum permitted
annual revenue (PAR) is based on the power transmission assets
available to users, instead of the power transmitted. After a
significant decrease in cash flow generation due to the company
acceptance of the government proposal for early renewal of its
main concession, cash flow has benefited from additional revenues
from reinforcement investments. For the LTM ended June 30, 2016,
net revenues reached BRL1.1 billion, with EBITDA of BRL566
million, according to Fitch criteria. In 2015, net revenues and
EBITDA were BRL1 billion and BRL461 million, respectively.

Fitch expects CTEEP's free cash flow (FCF) to turn negative after
2016 due to high capex needs and an increase in annual dividends
payout, following the receipt of the complementary compensation
for the concession renewal. Also for the LTM ended June 30, 2016,
cash flow from operations (CFFO) and FCF were BRL349 million and
BR9 million, respectively. As of June 2016, the company had
forecasted grid-reinforcement capex of BRL1 billion until 2019,
which together with formerly realized investments since 2013 is
expected to generate an increase of BRL800 million in revenues
until 2019.

Low Business Risk

Fitch considers the transmission segment as the lowest-risk
segment in the Brazilian power sector. CTEEP's credit profile
benefits from its exclusive right to provide electricity
transmission services through its multiple concessions. CTEEP
currently participates in eight concessions in operation with an
equivalent participation of 1.826 km. This reduces the company's
exposure to the risks associated with the construction phase.

Structural Subordination

ISA Capital's credit quality reflects the company's structural
subordination to CTEEP's obligations. ISA Capital owns only 37.3%
of CTEEP's total capital and receives this proportional stake of
the dividends paid by the transmission company. ISA Capital is
expected to use the proceeds it receives from CTEEP, together with
its cash on-hand (BRL21 million as of March 2016) to partially pay
its debt. At the end March 2016, ISA Capital's debt was BRL906
million, mostly comprised of the remaining portion of its 2017
bonds (BRL114 million) not tendered during 2010 and the
obligations to redeem its preferred shares of BRL792 million.

Fitch believes that ISA Capital will have to raise additional cash
to meet debt obligations, since dividends flow from CTEEP in 2016
should not be sufficient. Annual dividends from the transmission
company are expected to increase only after the complimentary
compensation for the concession renewal is received (after July
2017). In 2016, ISA Capital's controlling shareholder has repaid a
BRL86 million Intercompany loan, which added to its liquidity. ISA
Capital has also lengthened its preferred share repurchase
schedule with the preferred shareholders. The program of acquiring
the BRL891 million of preferred shares was extended to 2020 with a
two-year grace period (2016-2017).

KEY ASSUMPTIONS

Fitch's key assumptions for CTEEP within the rating case include:

   -- Current transmission tariffs adjusted by inflation annually;

   -- Dividend payments of BRL110 million in 2016, BRL294 million
      in 2017 and BRL325 million in 2018;

   -- Annual average capex of BRL361 million from 2016 to 2019;

   -- Corporate guarantees to non-controlling subsidiaries fully
      released until the end of 2017.

Fitch's key assumptions for ISA Capital within the rating case
include:

   -- Dividend receipts of BRL41 million in 2016, BRL109 million
      in 2017 and BRL120 million in 2018.

RATING SENSITIVITIES

Future developments that may individually or collectively lead to
a negative rating action at CTEEP includes:

   -- Sizeable investments or acquisitions currently not in the
      company's business plan that could lead to net leverage
      consistently above 3.5x;

   -- CFFO + Cash and equivalents/short-term debt ratio below
      1.5x.

Future developments that may individually or collectively lead to
a negative rating action at ISA Capital includes:

   -- A downgrade of CTEEP's rating;

   -- Difficulty in meeting its obligations based on lower
      dividends to be received from CTEEP or failure of potential
      alternative cash inflows;

   -- A downgrade of the sovereign rating should trigger a
      downgrade of the foreign currency IDR.

An upgrade in ISA Capital's ratings is not likely in the medium
term. If the Outlook for the sovereign rating is revised to Stable
from Negative, the Outlook on the company's foreign currency IDR
should also follow the same movement.

LIQUIDITY

CTEEP's financial profile benefits from its robust liquidity
position. As of June 30, 2016, as per Fitch methodology, cash and
cash equivalents of BRL426 million was sufficient to cover short-
term debt of BRL255 million by 1.7x. Liquidity should improve
based on the potential complementary compensation due after July
2017. CTEEP also had comfortable short-term debt coverage when
considering FFO + cash and cash equivalents)/short-term debt at
3.0x. ISA Capital's liquidity was reduced by BRL21 million in
March 2016.

* DOMINICAN REPUBLIC: Funds Mean 'Big Boost' for Sugar Industry
---------------------------------------------------------------
Dominican Today reports that on his first surprise visit, after
the inaugural of his second term in office on August 16, President
Danilo Medina met with more than 2,000 sugar industry
representatives, in Guerra, Santo Domingo province, where
government funding was the topic of interest.

President Medina and several senior officials visited the east
region town where he discussed the needs of the sector with the
heads of six associations with more than 2,000 members in four
provinces and eight municipalities, according to Dominican Today.

Operators of plantations told President Medina they want to
transform more than 2,000 hectares for sugarcane and requested
financing for RD$147 million, the report notes.

President Medina reiterated government support through the State
Sugar Council (CEA) which will speed up construction of a plant to
produce raw brown sugar (panela) and announced an analysis by
experts to determine its viability, the report notes.

                           Sweet Rebound

Administrative minister Jose Ramon Peralta said sugarcane has
again become a profitable crop in the last four years, and
stressed that President Medina "will give it a big boost over the
next four years," the report notes.

Also present in the activity were the ministers of Public Works,
Gonzalo Castillo, and Angel Estevez, of Agriculture.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
July 1, 2016, Moody's Investors Service has changed the outlook on
the Dominican Republic's long term issuer and debt ratings to
positive from stable. The ratings have been affirmed at B1.

JAMAICA: Correspondent Banking Issue Being Addressed
----------------------------------------------------
Denise Dennis at Caribbean News Now reports that Prime Minister
Andrew Holness said the government of Jamaica is strengthening
initiatives to tackle the threat of international banks ending
their correspondent banking relationships with local financial
institutions.

In order to reduce reputational risks and be in compliance with
international regulations, particularly relating to criminal
activity, such as money laundering, fraud and terrorist financing,
international banks have threatened to cut ties with banks in the
region in a de-risking move, according to Caribbean News Now.

The report notes that Mr. Holness, addressing a press conference
on August 17, said he considers the issue "a clear and present
danger".

Mr. Holness noted that the government is working assiduously to
lobby banking counterparts in the United States, as well as to
engage local banks on ways to mitigate the threat, the report
relays.

Mr. Holness added that the government has held a series of
consultations with stakeholders and has been working closely with
banks to ensure compliance with international standards, the
report relays.  Mr. Holness said he has also met with the Bank of
Jamaica and the ministry of finance and the public service, to
facilitate further discussion on the matter, the report notes.

"At CARICOM, all the leaders agree that we would make a concerted
effort to lobby the United States on ensuring that the
correspondent banking issue does not de-stabilise the fiscal and
economic growth security of the countries," the report quoted Mr.
Holness as saying.

The prime minister emphasized that countries in the region must
move quickly to ensure that their legislative and regulatory
frameworks align as much as possible with international banking
requirements, the report notes.

"The process is ongoing and I think that there is an evolving
understanding on the part of the US regulators about the Jamaican
challenges and the threats that de-risking poses," Mr. Holness
said, the report relays.

Correspondent banking involves banks in large countries
facilitating certain transactions for other banks, the report
says.  This may include wire transfers, business transactions,
deposits and gathering of documents on behalf of the other
financial institution, the report discloses.

CARICOM has indicated that it will be hosting a global conference
in the Caribbean aimed at strengthening this advocacy, the report
adds.

                        *     *     *

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
Feb. 15, 2016, Fitch Ratings has upgraded Jamaica's Long-term
foreign and local currency IDRs to 'B' from 'B-' and revised the
Rating Outlooks to Stable from Positive.  In addition, Fitch
upgraded Jamaica's senior unsecured Foreign- and Local-Currency
bonds to 'B' from 'B-'.  The Country Ceiling has been affirmed at
'B' and the Short- Term Foreign-Currency IDR affirmed at 'B'.

CULIACAN MUNICIPALITY: Moody's Cuts Issuer Ratings to B1/Baa3.mx
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's de Mexico downgraded the issuer ratings of the
Municipality of Culiacan to B1/Baa3.mx from Ba3/Baa1.mx. The
outlook remains negative.

At the same time, Moody's de Mexico downgraded debt ratings of the
MXN 498 million loan (original face value) with Banorte to
Ba1/A1.mx from Baa3/Aa3.mx (Global Scale, local currency).

RATINGS RATIONALE

The downgrade of the Municipality of Culiacan's issuer ratings
reflects the deterioration of liquidity in conjunction with higher
risk and uncertainty around the timely and full payment of
upcoming short-term obligations. The rating action also reflects
the decline of gross operating margins.

Until 2012, Culiacan recorded a positive net working capital to
total expenditures ratio. However, since 2013 this ratio has been
deteriorating, reaching a minimum of -13.2% in 2015, compared with
the 3.9% in 2011. This has resulted in a more intensive use of
short-term debt. As of June 2016, Culiacan reports two short-term
loans, the first one with Banco Interacciones (secured with
federal transfers) with maturity on September 30, 2016 and an
outstanding balance of MXN 27.9 million, and a second with Banco
Banregio (unsecured) with maturity on August 31, 2016 and an
outstanding balance of MXN 62 million. It should be noted that
according to information provided by the municipality, to date
both credits have been paid in full and in a timely manner.
However in consideration of the bullet payment of the loan with
Banregio and the tight liquidity of the municipality Moody's
expects that Culiacan will struggle to pay the total amount of the
balance of this short term loan and will need to refinance this
debt. Moody's will continue to closely monitor the payment status
of both loans and its possible impact on the issuer ratings.

Despite Culiacan's efforts to control operating expenditure
growth, gross operating margins decreased from 5.3% in 2011 to -
4.9% in 2015, given the increase seen in salaries and in general
services. Moody's estimates that the deficit will stand at -3.1%
at the end of the year and that the liquidity will remain very
tight.

The negative outlook reflects the uncertainty of Culiacan's
capacity to respect all upcoming debt service payments on short
term debt obligations in a full and timely manner as well as the
ongoing challenges to improve consistently its operating balances
and the Moody's expectation that liquidity will remain very tight.

The rating downgrade of the MXN 498 million (original face value)
enhanced loan with Banorte reflects the downgrade of Culiacan's
issuer ratings. Per Moody's methodology on rating enhanced loans,
the loan ratings are directly linked to the credit quality of the
issuer, which ensures that underlying contract enforcement risks,
economic risks and credit culture risks (for which the issuer
rating acts as a proxy) are embedded in the ratings of the
enhanced loan.

WHAT COULD CHANGE THE RATING UP/DOWN

Given the negative outlook, a rating upgrade in the medium term is
unlikely. The ratings could stabilize if the municipality honors
all bank liabilities in a full and timely manner, in conjunction
with an improvement in its operating margins and liquidity.

Conversely, the ratings could be further downgraded if Culiacan
fails to pay in full and timely manner all of its short-term debt
obligations. Also a further deterioration in the liquidity
position and the persistence of negative gross operating balances
will likely lead to a downgrade on issuer ratings.

Given the links between the loan and the credit quality of the
obligor an upgrade/downgrade of the issuer ratings could exert
upward/downward pressure on debt ratings for the enhanced loans.
Also, if debt service coverage metrics improve/fall materially
below our expectations, the ratings could face upward/downward
pressure.

The methodologies used in these ratings were Regional and Local
Governments published in January 2013, and Rating Methodology for
Enhanced Municipal and State Loans in Mexico published in June
2014.

The period of time covered in the financial information used to
determine Culiacan, Municipality of's rating is between 1/1/2011
and 12/31/2015 (source: issuer).

FINANCIERA GENEROSA: Bankrupt With US$22 Million in Debt
--------------------------------------------------------
Caribbean News Now reports that Financiera Generosa, a Panamanian
money services business, owing more than US$22 million in bonds
and commercial paper, has gone into bankruptcy, and creditors fear
that their security, where it actually exists, was grossly
overvalued by company officers, giving rise to criminal liability
on the part of a number of officers and directors.

Generosa, whose legal name is Finanzas y Creditos del Hogar SA,
and which was heavily involved in the finance of commercial
buildings, especially hotel construction, was unable to meet its
debt service as it came due, particularly its bond issues, and has
been forced into bankruptcy, according to Caribbean News Now.

Money services businesses in Panama are typically involved in
finance, unlike those in other countries, the report notes.

Its President, Jose Luis Ford Hernandez, has been confined to his
home and prohibited from leaving the country; criminal charges
have been filed against him, the report relays.

Multiple law suits against the company have been pending for the
last four years. Panama's securities regulator, the SMV, posted a
notice of the bankruptcy on its website, the report discloses.
Institutional creditors, many of whom are holding Generosa
obligations in the millions of dollars, are in danger of losing
their entire investment, the report says.

This scandal, the biggest to hit Panama since the Petaquilla
Mining insider trading case, will further reduce the confidence
that investors have in Panama's economy, and the ability of its
commercial ventures to meet their obligations, the report notes.

EJS INCORPORADO: Asks for Nov. 14 Extension of Plan Filing Date
---------------------------------------------------------------
EJS Incorporado asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of
Puerto Rico to extend its exclusive period to file a chapter 11
plan and disclosure statement to November 14, 2016.

The Debtor relates that it was originally scheduled to file its
Disclosure Statement and Chapter 11 Small Business Plan on August
15, 2016.  The Debtor further relates that it had not been able to
file its monthly operating reports because the accountant
authorized by the Court had resigned.

The Debtor contends that it will submit a proposal for a new
accountant with the Court within the next 14 days.  The Debtor
further contends that it cannot file a disclosure statement and
plan on time because of the situation with its accountant, who is
essential to the preparation  and filing of its disclosure
statement and plan.

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.
