ACORN RE 2015-1: Fitch Affirms BB Rating on Catastrophe Risk
------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed the Principal-At-Risk Variable Rate
Notes issued by Acorn Re Ltd., a duly formed special purpose
insurer vehicle domiciled in Bermuda:

-- $300,000,000 2015-1 Class A Principal At-Risk Variable Rate
    Notes with an expected maturity of July 17, 2018 at 'BBsf';
    Outlook Stable.

This affirmation is based on Fitch's annual surveillance review of
the notes that includes an evaluation of the natural catastrophe
risk, counterparty exposure, collateral assets and structural
performance. Fitch continues to believe the natural catastrophe
risk is the weakest link in this transaction.

KEY RATING DRIVERS

The Series 2015-1 Notes provide reinsurance protection to Hannover
Rueck SE ('A+' Issuer Default Rating; Outlook Stable). The notes
are exposed to Earthquakes for an area that includes the States of
California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Utah, Nevada and Arizona of
the United States, the Province of British Columbia of Canada, and
the States of Baja California, Baja California Sur and Sonora of
Mexico. Hannover Rueck SE also established a similar reinsurance
agreement with Oak Tree Assurance, Ltd., (not rated by Fitch) a
wholly owned subsidiary of Kaiser Foundation Health Plan, Inc.
('A+' Insurer Financial Strength Rating; Outlook Stable).

The trigger is per occurrence based on a parametric 'cat-in-a-box'
structure utilizing up to 430 predetermined Earthquake Box
Locations that are each a square box of size one degree by one
degree on the Earth's surface. The area that comprises the group
of Earthquake Box Locations is delineated by latitudes +26 degrees
and +54 degrees and longitudes -132 degrees and
-110 degrees.

Fitch received a Model Update Report from the Calculation Agent
("RMS") due to the release of an updated version of the Initial
Model. This report indicated the Updated Modeled Expected Loss to
be 0.64% versus the Initial Modeled Expected Loss of 0.74%. As a
result, the interest spread on the Notes will decrease to 3.29%
from 3.40%. The change in the expected loss did not alter Fitch's
implied rating of the catastrophe risk of 'BB', which as the
"weakest link", is the driver of the notes.

Fitch believes the notes and indirect counterparties are
performing as required. There have been no reported early
redemption notices or events of default, and all agents remain in
place.

Additional information regarding the note can be found in the
prior press releases dated July 13, 2015 (2015-1 Class A) and
June 29, 2016 available at www.fitchratings.com.

RATING SENSITIVITIES

This rating is sensitive to the occurrence of Covered Event(s),
the counterparty risk of Hannover Rueck SE or changes to the
ratings or performance of the assets held in the Retrocession
Trust account.

In the case of a triggering Covered Event, Fitch will downgrade
the notes reflecting an effective loss of principal and impairment
of the notes, and issue a Recovery Rating.

To a lesser extent, the notes may be downgraded if Hannover Rueck
SE is significantly downgraded or fails to perform its obligations
under the Retrocession Agreement to Acorn Re Ltd.

Likewise, the ratings on the notes may be affected if the IBRD
notes (which are held in the Retrocession Trust account) should
suffer a serious downgrade, or the terms of the IBRD notes are
altered or if the subsequent assets held in the Retrocession Trust
account perform significantly worse than expectations for high
quality, short-term investments.


CRANBERRY RE: Fitch Affirms Bsf Rating on Variable Rate Notes
-------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings affirms the 'Bsf' rating to the Principal At-Risk
Variable Rate Notes issued by Cranberry Re Ltd., a special purpose
insurer vehicle domiciled in Bermuda:

-- $300,000,000 Principal At-Risk Variable Rate Notes; scheduled
    maturity July 6, 2018.

The Rating Outlook is Stable.

This affirmation is based on Fitch's annual surveillance review of
the Notes and includes an updated evaluation of the natural
catastrophe risk, counterparty exposure, collateral assets and
structural performance

KEY RATING DRIVERS

The notes are exposed to insured property losses caused by 'named
storms', 'severe thunderstorms' and 'winter storms' on an annual
aggregate basis using an indemnity trigger, from Subject Business
written by the Massachusetts Property Insurance Underwriting
Association (MPIUA, also known as the MA FAIR Plan).

On April 14, 2017, AIR Worldwide (AIR), acting as the Reset Agent,
completed the Reset Report that indicated an updated modeled
annual attachment probability as 3.198% for the third (and final)
Annual Risk Period, July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2018. This
corresponds to an implied rating of 'B' per the calibration table
listed in Fitch's 'Insurance-Linked Securities Methodology'. The
updated modeled attachment probability reflects updated property
exposures within the Subject Business in the Covered Area that
have been run through the escrowed AIR model. This is a small
increase over the updated modeled attachment probability for the
previous Annual Risk Period of 3.152%.

The Updated Attachment Level and Updated Exhaustion Level remain
unchanged from the prior levels at $300 million and $1.4 billion,
respectively.

Per a specified formula in the Indenture (the "Risk Spread
Calculation"), the Updated Risk Interest Spread will be reset to
3.90% effective July 1, 2017. This is a slight increase from the
prior period (3.86%) reflecting the increase in the Updated
Modeled Expected Loss of 1.429% from the prior expected loss of
1.407%.

Hannover Rueck SE (Issuer Default Rating 'A+', Stable Outlook) is
a reinsurance company that acts as a transformer and sits between
MPIUA and Cranberry Re Ltd. The collateral assets, the BlackRock
Treasury Trust, meets Fitch's criteria requirement for a highly-
rated U.S. dollar-denominated money market fund.

Fitch believes the Notes and indirect counterparties are
performing as required. There have been no reported early
redemption notices or events of default and all agents remain in
place.

Additional information regarding the Note can be found in the
prior rating action commentary on April 30, 2015 and April 27,
2016 (available at www.fitchratings.com).

RATING SENSITIVITIES

This rating is sensitive to the occurrence of a qualifying
event(s), the counterparty rating of Hannover Rueck SE and the
rating on the assets held in the collateral account.

If qualifying covered events occur that causes annual aggregate
losses to exceed the Updated Attachment Level ($300 million),
Fitch will downgrade the notes reflecting an effective default and
issue a Recovery Rating.

To a lesser extent, the notes may be downgraded if the U.S.
dollar-denominated money market funds should 'break the buck',
Hannover Rueck SE fails to make timely retrocession premium
payments or MPIUA materially changes its mission or operations.

The catastrophe risk element is highly model-driven and actual
losses may differ from the results of the simulation analysis. The
escrow models may not reflect future methodology enhancements by
AIR which may have an adverse or beneficial effect on the implied
rating of the notes were such future methodology considered.

BANCO PAN: S&P Keeps 'B+/B' Rating on CreditWatch Negative
----------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings kept its 'B+/B' global scale and 'brBBB-/brA-3'
national scale ratings on Banco Pan S.A. on CreditWatch negative.
The bank's stand-alone credit profile (SACP) remains at 'b+'.

Banco Pan's Basel III regulatory ratio fell to 11.3% as of March
2017 from 13.3% as of December 2016 due to regulatory deductions
related to DTAs and Tier II subordinated debt added to the bank's
weak internal capital generation.  Brazil is currently
implementing Basel III DTA deductions on a phase-in basis that
will be completed in 2018.  Every year since 2015, Brazilian banks
had to deduct from their regulatory capital 20% of their DTAs from
net losses and the balance of DTAs from temporary differences, not
related to credit provisions, higher than 10% of their Tier I
equity.  Moreover, most subordinated debts issued prior to Basel
III implementation were also part of the deduction framework due
to the subordinated debts' low capacity to absorb losses.  Banco
Pan's high amount of DTAs caused its regulatory capital to shrink
by around R$230 million as of March 2017 and the deduction of the
bank's debt instrument from the Tier II capital totaling R$118
million decreased its Basel III ratio to 11.3%.


HYPERMARCAS SA: S&P Affirms 'BB+' CCR; Outlook Remains Positive
---------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings Services affirmed its 'BB+' global scale and
'brAA+' Brazilian national scale corporate credit ratings on
Hypermarcas S.A.  The outlook remains positive.

The rating affirmation and positive outlook reflect S&P's
expectation that Hypermarcas will maintain very robust leverage
metrics amid a prudent financial risk policy regarding debt-
financed acquisitions and shareholders' remuneration.  At the same
time, S&P expects Hypermarcas to remain focused on the
pharmaceutical segment, mainly in the branded prescription drugs,
in order to increase market penetration and maintain strong
profitability over the next few years.


RUMO SA: Fitch Affirms BB- Long-Term Issuer Default Ratings
-----------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed at 'BB-' the Long-Term (LT) Foreign
Currency (FC) and Local Currency (LC) Issuer Default Ratings
(IDRs) of Rumo S.A. (Rumo) and the rating of its USD750 million of
unsecured global notes, due in 2024, issued by Rumo Luxembourg
S.a.r.l, a whole-owned subsidiary of Rumo. Fitch has also affirmed
at 'A(bra)' the National Scale Long-Term ratings of Rumo, its
subsidiaries and all of their related unsecured debentures. At the
same time, Fitch has assigned 'A(bra)' to the 9th debentures
issuance of the subsidiary Rumo Malha Norte S.A (Rumo Malha
Norte). The debentures total BRL2,375 million and is due in 2023.
Fitch has also withdrawn the rating of Rumo Logistica Operadora
Multimodal S.A. (Rumo Logistica). The Rating Outlook for corporate
ratings has been revised to Positive from Stable.

The rating incorporates Rumo's leveraged capital structure, offset
by the high predictability of its cash flow generation under
adverse economic conditions through several cycles, and its solid
business position as a railroad and logistic operator in the
Brazilian infrastructure industry. Fitch sees as a credit positive
Rumo's affiliation with the Cosan Group (Cosan Limited; FC LT IDR
'BB'/Stable Outlook), which provides reasonable financial
flexibility to the company. The substantial capex plan for
expansion and negative free cash flows (FCF) expected for the next
two years constrain the ratings.

The revision of the Outlook to Positive from Stable reflects
Fitch's expectation of fast deleverage trends following the
company's ongoing gains of scale and improving operating
profitability. According to Fitch's base case, Rumo's FCF is
likely to become neutral to positive as from 2019, when the
aggressive investment plans get matured. The company still has the
challenge to consistently capture increasing volumes, strengthen
its business position and improve operating cash flow generation
in order to reduce leverage on a sustainable basis. Positive
rating actions also depend on Rumo's ability to maintain its
strong liquidity by financing its expansion with long-term debt
lines and improve FFO margins to levels closer to 25%.

Fitch has withdrawn Rumo Logistica's ratings as the entity no
longer exists.

KEY RATING DRIVERS

High Leverage Expected to Decline: Fitch expects Rumo's net
adjusted leverage to rapidly decline to levels below 4.0x in 2018,
reaching a ratio close to 2.5x in 2020, when the aggressive
investment program matures. The deleverage process is supported by
consistent EBITDAR expansion, thanks to the increasing capacity
and improved cost structure allowed by the past investments. The
company's pro forma net adjusted debt/EBITDAR ratio reached 4.5x
as of the LTM ended March 31, 2017, in line with 2016. This ratio
compares to 5.2x in 2015.

Challenging Operating Performance Improvement: The company still
faces challenges to capture increasing load volumes and raise its
business operations profitability from 2017 onwards following the
conclusion of the measures taken to improve its operating and
financial profile in 2016. The businesses are strongly exposed to
Brazil's agricultural performance, which led volumes to slightly
decline during 2016. Rumo's business model is highly dependent on
increased railroad volumes going forward, in order to benefit from
operating margins expansion as consequence of operational
efficiencies unleashed by its capex program.

Pressured FCF: The sizeable capex plan is expected to lead to
negative free cash flows up to 2018, but Fitch's base case
forecasts FCF to become neutral to slightly positive as of 2019.
Rumo is expected to invest about BRL7.0 billion up to 2020, which
should result in volume increases of above 10% per year up to
2018, according to Fitch's assumptions. The company is expected to
finance investment with long-term debt mostly.

Business Profile Remains Strong: Rumo enjoys a solid business
position as the sole railroad transportation operator in the South
and Mid-Western regions of Brazil, areas with high growth
potential due to stable demand for grains worldwide. Rumo's
businesses rely on four rail concessions to operate railway lines
that extend over approximately 12 thousand kilometres within
Brazil, with access to three main Brazilian ports. Due to its cost
structure, Rumo's businesses enjoy solid competitive advantages
over the truck services. This factor enhances its consistent
demand and limits volume volatilities over the cycles. The company
will continue to expand its businesses within the industry by
putting an aggressive capex plan to add capacity to its operations
over the next four years.

DERIVATION SUMMARY

Rumo enjoys strong business profile. Its operations are
geographically concentrated in Brazil, but predominantly linked
with the country exports of grains, which enjoys positive
perspectives. Brazilian railroads coverage region are well-defined
and distinct, which limits the competition among them. The
company's business model is enhanced by its important market share
in the ports the company serves, compared with the high-cost truck
service.

The rating incorporates Rumo's leveraged capital structure, offset
by the high predictability of its cash flow generation under
adverse economic conditions through several cycles. The
substantial capex plan for expansion and negative free cash flows
(FCF) expected for the next years constrain the ratings. Fitch
sees as credit positive Rumo's affiliation with the Cosan Group
(Cosan Limited; FC LT IDR 'BB'/Stable Outlook), which provides
reasonable financial flexibility to the company.

The revision of the Outlook to Positive from Stable reflects
Rumo's fast deleverage trends following the ongoing gains of scale
and improving operating profitability, while the ambitious
investment plans mature. The company has the challenge to
consistently capture increasing volumes, strengthen its business
position and improve operating cash flow generation in order to
reduce leverage on a sustainable basis. Positive rating actions
rely on Rumo's ability to maintain its strong liquidity and
financial flexibility while financing its expansion.

KEY ASSUMPTIONS

Fitch's key assumptions within Fitch ratings case for the issuer
include:

-- 10% to 15% of volume increases per year in 2017 and 2018;
    mid-single digit volume growth from 2019 to 2020;
-- Tariff increase of 4.5% in 2017 and 5.0% in 2018;
-- EBITDAR of BRL2.5 billion in 2017, BRL2.8 billion in 2018
    and BRL3.2 billion in 2019;
-- BRL2.2 billion capex in 2017 and BRL4.8 billion capex from
    2018 to 2020;
-- Adjusted net debt to EBITDA, according to Fitch' calculation,
    close to 4.0x in 2017 and at the range of 3.8x-3.2x in 2018
    and 2019.

RATING SENSITIVITIES

Future Developments That May, Individually or Collectively, Lead
to Positive Rating Action
-- Net adjusted leverage trends below 4.0x, considering only
    financial debt, in a sustainable basis;
-- Maintenance of strong liquidity and positive debt refinancing
    schedule;
-- FFO margin closer to 25%.

Future Developments That May, Individually or Collectively, Lead
to Negative Rating Action
-- Inability to finance capex with long-term and low cost debt,
    putting pressure on debt amortization schedule;
-- Substantial weakening of current EBITDA margins.

LIQUIDITY

Sound Liquidity: The capital injection of BRL2.6 billion and the
extension of medium-term debt, during 2016, combined with the
seven-year bond issuance during 1Q17 strengthened Rumo's liquidity
significantly. As of March 31, 2017, the company reported cash
position of BRL3.1 billion, which covered short-term debt of
BRL2.3 billion by 1.4x. This coverage ratio improves to 1.8x when
the CFFO is added to cash. Fitch understands Rumo's liquidity is
adequate and sustainable in the long term, considering the
financial flexibility the company has presented to finance part of
its aggressive capex plan. The company is expected to use part of
its cash and operating cash flow generation to finance the ongoing
investments, while proceeds from the already framed BRL3.5 billion
long-term debt from Banco Nacional de Desenvolvimento Economico e
Social (BNDES) are not received. Fitch expects part of proceeds
from BNDES to be received during 2017.

DOMINICAN REPUBLIC: Group Wants Haiti Ban on Local Products Solved
------------------------------------------------------------------
Dominican Today reports that retailers and transport organizations
from the four border provinces formed an association to promote
talks with the authorities to solve the deadlock with Haiti's ban
on numerous Dominican products, that has hobbled the cross-border
markets.

The representatives from Dajabon, Elias Pina, Pedernales and
Jimani gathered in Santo Domingo's Bono Center, where they vowed
to defend, protect and develop cross-border trade, according to
Dominican Today.

"The lack of clear rules, spaces for dialogue between the
governments of both countries, a regulatory body in the legal,
fiscal, transportation, trading and market logistics relationships
are factors that translate into elements that distort the
functionality and development of the border markets between the
Dominican Republic and Haiti," they said, the report notes.

They say that directly, the situation hurts the trade sector on
both sides of the border, as merchants never know what new
incident would hamper the sales of their merchandise, the report
relays.  "The climate of instability and the deregulation of the
main commercial land ports of the Dominican Republic in its
relations with Haiti is affected by not having established
measures to ensure its proper functioning," the report notes.

"For the 14 border markets there is an indirect economic benefit
for thousands of families throughout the country and directly
affects a population of 211,160 inhabitants in the municipalities
of Dajabon, Elias Pina, Jimani and Pedernales provinces, which
have the highest poverty rates in the Dominican Republic," the new
organization said, the report adds.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
May 1, 2017, S&P Global Ratings affirmed its 'BB-/B' long- and
short-term sovereign credit ratings on the Dominican Republic.
The outlook remains stable.  The transfer and convertibility (T&C)
assessment is unchanged at 'BB+'.

JAMAICA: BPO Sector Wants Meeting Before SEZ Regulations Finalized
------------------------------------------------------------------
RJR News reports that the Business Process Industry Association of
Jamaica (BPIAJ) is calling on the government to engage with the
association before it finalizes Special Economic Zone (SEZ)
regulations, which in the view of the BPIAJ has the potential to
stifle the growth of BPO in Jamaica.

The BPIAJ represents a majority of Business Process Outsourcing
Companies Island wide, according to RJR News.

Chief among the BPIAJ's concerns is how the industry will be
treated under the Special Economic Zone regime, which imposes not
only a host of fees and regulations, but also more red tape and
bureaucracy, the report notes.

Jamaica's BPO industry has been identified as the main driver of
the country's growth agenda, and the government has targeted the
creation of 100,000 BPO jobs in five years, the report relays.

The BPO sector is the island's largest employer, and the fastest
growing industry, contributing over US$400 million annually to the
local economy, the report adds.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
Feb. 9, 2017, Fitch Ratings affirmed Jamaica's Long-Term Foreign
and Local Currency Issuer Default Ratings (IDRs) at 'B' with a
Stable Outlook. The issue ratings on Jamaica's senior unsecured
Foreign and Local Currency bonds are also affirmed at 'B'. The
Outlooks on the Long-Term IDRs are Stable. The Country Ceiling is
affirmed at 'B' and the Short-Term Foreign Currency and Local
Currency IDRs at 'B'.

BANCO DEL BAJIO: Fitch Affirms BB- Support Rating Floor
-------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed Banco del Bajio, S.A. Institucion de
Banca Multiple (BanBajio)'s Long- and Short-Term Foreign and Local
Currency Issuer Default Ratings (IDRs) at 'BBB-' and 'F3',
respectively. In addition, the Viability Rating (VR) is affirmed
at 'bbb-'.

At the same time, BanBajio and Financiera Bajio, S.A. de C.V.
Sofom E.R. (FinBajio) Long-Term National Scale Rating is upgraded
to 'AA(mex)' from 'AA-(mex)'. The Short-term National Scale Rating
is affirmed at 'F1+(mex).

The Rating Outlook of the long-term ratings on both scales is
Stable.

Fitch's upgrade of BanBajio National Long-Term Rating reflects the
strengthened capitalization due to recent IPO, improving
profitability and stable asset quality in relation to its national
peers. Although these factors did not immediately impact the VR
and IDR, in Fitch's view BanBajio's global ratings could be
increased if current profitability metrics are sustained and
recently enhanced capital ratios consolidate around the bank's
target levels after the recent IPO, but also on the maintenance of
Fitch's assessment of the operating environment, which currently
mirrors the Negative Outlook of the sovereign rating.

KEY RATING DRIVERS
VR, IDRS AND NATIONAL RATINGS

BanBajio's VR, which drives its IDRs and national ratings,
considers the bank's recurrent adequate profitability metrics,
which have been improving, and healthy loan portfolio. The rating
also takes into account the bank's adequate and enhanced capital
metrics that derives from the bank's recent IPO. BanBajio's
current rating is also in line with its company profile
highlighted by a modest but growing franchise and consolidated
business model focused on commercial lending, particularly SMEs
and agribusiness.

BanBajio is a Mexican mid-sized traditional commercial bank, with
a focus on medium enterprises. The bank remains as the eight
largest bank in Mexico, with a market share in loans and deposits
of around 3% and 2.4%, respectively.

BanBajio's performance has been consistently improving, enhanced
by a growing business volume of operations (approximately 17%
during 2016), low cost funding mix and recurrent increases of the
interest rates in Mexico. As of the first quarter of 2017 (1Q17),
the bank's operating profit to Risk Weighted Assets (RWA) ratio
improved to nearly 3%, from a four-year average of 1.8%.
BanBajio's profits have also benefited from controlled operating
expenses derived from the consolidation of current branches as
well as from relatively low loan impairment charges due to its
healthy portfolio. Fitch believes that if the bank manages to
reach its growth target in an orderly manner, current higher
profitably levels could be sustained.

The bank's asset quality has continued its positive trend,
highlighted by the improvement of its non-performing loan (NPL)
ratio. As of 1Q17, this ratio stood at 1% (1Q16: 1.3%), and
considering the adjusted NPL (impaired loans + net charge offs),
the ratio stands nearly at 1.8%, which compares favourably with
its national peers. Also, reserve coverage of impaired loans is
adequate. As a result of its gradual expansion, the bank has
reduced its portfolio concentrations both geographically and per
borrower. As of 1Q17, the top 20 obligors accounted for nearly
1.3x (1Q16: 1.5x) its Fitch Core Capital (FCC), which positively
compares with some other medium banks, however, the two main
clients still represented nearly 28% of the FCC at the same date.
Concentrations will likely be reduced with the enhanced capital.

Capitalization was one of the bank's major weaknesses in the
recent past. However, the recent IPO improved its loss absorption
capacity, but it is yet to be seen at which level it will
stabilize after the gradual depletion of the newly raised capital,
which will be used to prepay some of the Bajio's most expensive
liabilities to enhance profitability, and to continue growing its
loans portfolio. As of March 2017, BanBajio's FCC stood at 11.4%;
after the capital inflow from the IPO of about MXN3,300 million,
Fitch expects this metric to be around 13%. Sustained internal
capital generation will become a relevant factor to sustain
capital ratios around recently enhanced levels. Dividend payments
have been around 30% of net income over the past two years, but
the bank plans to declare dividends of around 20% going forward.

Fitch believes that BanBajio's funding profile is positive and
enhances its ALM. The bank's main funding source comes from
customer deposits, which have been increasing steadily (year-over-
year [YOY]: 2016: 6.5%). Concentrations at the bank's deposit base
are moderate, as the major 20 depositors make up about 16% of its
total customer deposit base. BanBajio's loans to deposit ratio
increased in 2016 and stood at nearly 130% in March 2017.

The bank shows tenor mismatches due to the short-term tenure of
its deposits, while most of its loans are long-term. However, the
bank's deposit base has proved to be stable over the years.
Likewise, BanBajio's regulatory LCR is over 100%, which is another
sing of its adequate liquidity profile. Also, the bank recurrently
uses facilities from Mexican development banks that typically
allow for a virtual maturity and interest rate perfect match.
Fitch believes that liquidity risk is manageable for the bank.

SUPPORT RATING AND SUPPORT RATING FLOOR

The bank's SR and SRF are driven by BanBajio's moderate market
share of core customer deposits. BanBajio is one of the few mid-
size banks that, in Fitch's opinion, could receive sovereign
support if needed; this is supported on the bank's market share of
customer deposits which is also widespread geographically. Fitch's
SRFs indicate a level below which the agency will not lower the
bank's Long-Term IDRs as long as the assessment of the support
factors does not change.

FINANCIERA BAJIO

FinBajio's ratings are at the same level of BanBajio's given
Fitch's assessment that the subsidiary is core to its parent due
to its strategic role in providing core products such as factoring
and leasing, which are complement to the range of products offered
by the bank to its clients. The ratings also consider the high
level of integration and fungibility of capital and funding.

RATING SENSITIVITIES
VR, IDRS AND NATIONAL RATINGS- BANCO DEL BAJIO

BanBajio's global ratings could be upgraded in the next 12 to 18
months if the bank consistently maintains its current financial
metrics characterized by improved profitability and materially
higher than historical capital ratios, particularly if operating
profits to RWA and FCC ratios remain above 2.5% and 13%,
respectively; while good asset quality is maintained. Upside
potential would only arise if Fitch's current assessment of the
Mexican banking sector's operating environment do not worsen over
that period. The outlook on this external factor is negative,
mirroring that of the country's sovereign rating.

A downgrade could result from deterioration on its performance
that negatively affects its FCC ratio to levels below 10% and/or
operating profits to RWAs consistently under 1.5%.

National ratings could be downgraded or upgraded if Fitch
perceives material changes in the relative creditworthiness of
BanBajio as compared to other Mexican peers.

SUPPORT RATING AND SUPPORT RATING FLOOR

Upside potential for the SR and SRF is limited and can only occur
over time with a material gain of the bank's systemic importance.
These ratings could be downgraded if the bank loses material
market share in terms of retail customer deposits.

FINANCIERA BAJIO
Any potential changes of Financiera Bajio's ratings will be driven
by any changes in BanBajio's ratings or a modification on the
entity's strategic importance to the bank.
Fitch has taken the following rating actions:

BanBajio
-- Foreign Currency Long-Term IDR affirmed at 'BBB-';
    Outlook Stable;
-- Foreign Currency Short-Term IDR affirmed at 'F3';
-- Local Currency Long-Term IDR affirmed at 'BBB-';
    Outlook Stable;
-- Local Currency Short-Term IDR affirmed at 'F3';
-- Viability Rating affirmed at 'bbb-';
-- Support Rating affirmed at '4';
-- Support Rating Floor affirmed at 'BB-'.
-- National Long-Term Rating upgraded to 'AA(mex)' from

Financiera Bajio
-- National Long-Term Rating upgraded to 'AA(mex)' from
    'AA-(mex)'; Outlook Stable;
-- National Short-Term Rating affirmed at 'F1+(mex)'.


BANCO INTERACCIONES: Fitch Affirms BB+ IDRs; Outlook Stable
-----------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed Banco Interacciones S.A.'s
(Interacciones) Viability rating (VR) at 'bb+' and its Long- and
Short-Term Foreign- and Local-Currency Issuer Default Ratings
(IDRs) at 'BB+/B'.

Fitch has also affirmed the national scale ratings of
Interacciones Casa de Bolsa, S.A. de C.V. Grupo Financiero
Interacciones (Interacciones CB) at 'A+(mex)' and 'F1(mex)', for
the long- and short-term ratings, respectively. The Rating Outlook
on the long-term ratings is Stable.

KEY RATING DRIVERS

VR, IDRS AND NATIONAL RATINGS

Interacciones's local and foreign currency IDRs are driven by its
VR of 'bb+', which is highly influenced by its moderate franchise
in the Mexican financial system and concentrated business model
but with a competitive position and strong market recognition in
the public sector lending. Interacciones is the second major
player of financing to states and municipalities and holds about
20% of market share.

The VR also considers its adequate loss absorption capacity, an
increasingly stable and diversified funding mix, its consistent
financial performance underpinned by recurrent earnings,
reasonable asset quality that drives low credit costs, as well as
controlled operating expenses.

The bank's profitability exhibited slight pressures as of March
2017. Interacciones' operating return to RWAs stood at 2.6% during
March 2017, compared with the 2.9% and 3.4% registered during 2016
and 2015, respectively. This performance reflects the seasonality
of the business model, as well as given the number of elections
last year and the implications within the context of the Ley de
Disciplina Financiera. Fitch believes the recurring operating
profit to RWAs will remain in a range of 2% and 3%, which still
compares well to its peers. However, the the bank's future metrics
could be challenged due to tightest interest margin within the
context of the legal changes that are creating a more competitive
government lending.

Interacciones' ratings factor in the adequate asset quality with a
significantly low impaired loan ratio of 0.1% over the past years
and robust collaterals given that more than 90% of gross loans
have secured source of payments (federal fiscal sources). The
ratings also incorporate the high concentrations by borrower,
where the 20 largest creditors accounted for 72.8% of gross loans
or 6.1x Fitch Core Capital (FCC). The bank maintains wide loan
loss reserves and improved to 23.3x of impaired loans during 1Q17,
compared to an average of 16.5x for the past four years. However,
these reserves are moderate when considering credit concentrations
since those only cover 1.3% of gross loans. Fitch views positively
the bank's efforts to decrease its credit concentrations over the
years. However, given the bank's business model these will
continue to be high and could undermine the bank's liquidity.

Interacciones' capital metrics are good and compares reasonably to
its national peers. The bank's FCC to Risk Weighted Assets (RWAs)
ratio has been stable over the past four years. It stood at 13.1%
by the end of the 1Q17 and averaged 12.9% from 2013 to 2016.
Intreracciones' capital base relies on its ability to internally
generate capital despite the recurrent dividend payment. The
bank's loss absorption capacity is also underpinned by an ample
loan loss reserves.

Interacciones' funding mix and liquidity profile have improved
gradually by increasing its customer deposit base and liquid
asset, as well as accessing longer tenor financing sources.
Interacciones' customer deposits have grown steadily over the last
four years; these grew at a rate of 31.1% y-o-y as of 1Q17 and
accounted for 49.5% of total funding excluding derivatives.
Deposits concentration has gradually decreased but is still high,
and the top 20 depositors represented about 50% of total core
deposits and are mostly composed of state federal and local
government accounts. However, positively, the bank has also
consistently incorporated corporate clients. Total liquid assets
(cash and cash equivalents plus deposits with banks plus trading
and available for sale securities net of trading liabilities)
accounted for a sound 34.4% of total assets and roughly 50% of its
short-term funding.

Liquidity for Interacciones continues to be challenged by
maturities mismatches given the long-term tenor of the government
loans and the short-term tenor of deposits. Negative cumulative
gaps are exhibited from the 30 days buckets, but the bank has
available facilities granted by development entities and an
adequate liquidity position to address this risk. The gap between
the average tenor of assets and the average term of liabilities
continue improving and stood at 1.8 years during 1Q17, down from
2.3 years in 1Q16. Fitch's core metric, loans to deposits ratio,
improved to 115.8% during 1Q17, down from 136% and 143% in 2016
and 2015, respectively and compares favorably respect to its
national closest peers. The improvement is driven by higher
deposit growth compared to loan growth.

The bank has local senior unsecured certificates, which were also
affirmed at the same level as its national scale rating given the
likelihood of default of any given senior unsecured obligation is
the same as the likelihood of default of the bank.

SUPPORT RATING

Interacciones' Support Rating and Support Rating Floor are
affirmed at '5' and 'NF', respectively, in view of the bank's low
systemic importance. In Fitch's view, external support cannot be
relied upon.

SUBORDINATED NOTES

The local subordinated hybrids of Interacciones were affirmed at
'BBB+(mex)', three notches below the applicable anchor rating, the
bank's long-term national scale rating of 'A+(mex)', in order to
maintain the relativity. The issue's rating is notched down
reflecting the loss severity and non-performance risk. The
notching for non-performance risk (-2) is typical for hybrids
issued by Mexican banks, since Fitch considers that the triggers
for coupon deferrals or cancellations are relatively high,
according to applicable local regulations. In turn, the notching
for loss severity (-1) reflects that these securities are plain-
vanilla subordinated debt (subordinated preferred, under the local
terminology).

INTERACCIONES CB
NATIONAL SCALE RATINGS

The Interacciones CB ratings reflect the support it could receive,
if needed, from its ultimate parent, Grupo Financiero
Interacciones (GFI) whose credit quality profile is aligned with
its main subsidiary, Interacciones. The support is based on the
local regulatory framework regarding the legal obligation of
financial groups with its subsidiaries, if needed. Interacciones
CB's activities are core for the group's strategy and business
model; especially given its position as funding mechanism for the
bank.

RATING SENSITIVITIES
VRs, IDRS AND NATIONAL RATINGS

An upgrade of Interacciones' ratings is hardly conceivable at
present, given its current niche oriented and concentrations in
both sides of the balance. Fitch believes it could occur if the
bank materially reduces its risk concentrations, coupled with
sustained improvements in its assets and liabilities maturity
mismatches.

In turn, a downgrade of Interacciones' ratings would arise if its
capital metrics and profitability weaken significantly.
Specifically, if the bank shows a FCC to RWAs ratio consistently
below 12.5% and operating profit to RWAs metric falls below 2%.
Material deteriorations of the bank's asset quality profile could
also exert pressure on the ratings.

The bank's senior debt ratings would mirror any change in the
bank's national scale ratings.
SUPPORT RATING
A potential upgrade of Interacciones' Support Rating and Support
Rating Floor is limited at present, since external support cannot
be relied upon.

SUBORDINATED NOTES

The bank's subordinated debt ratings will likely mirror any change
in the bank national scale ratings, as these are expected to
maintain the same relevance to Interacciones' credit rating.

INTERACCIONES CB
NATIONAL SCALE RATINGS

Any potential changes in INTERACCIONES CB's ratings will be driven
by any changes in Interacciones' ratings.

Fitch has affirmed the following ratings:

Banco Interacciones, S.A.
-- Long-term foreign and local currency IDRs at 'BB+', Outlook
Stable;
-- Short-term foreign and local currency IDRs at 'B';
-- Viability rating at 'bb+';
-- Support rating at '5';
-- Support rating floor at 'NF';
-- National scale long-term rating at 'A+(mex)', Outlook Stable;
-- National scale short-term rating at 'F1(mex)';
-- National scale long-term rating for local senior unsecured
    debt issues at 'A+(mex)';
-- National scale long-term rating for local subordinated debt
    issues at 'BBB+(mex).

Interacciones Casa de Bolsa, S.A. de C.V.
-- National scale long-term rating at 'A+(mex)', Outlook Stable;
-- National scale short-term rating at 'F1(mex)'.


EMPRESAS ICA: S&P Affirms Then Withdraws 'D' Ratings
----------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings affirmed its 'D' global scale and national

Empresas ICA S.A.B. de C.V. (ICA) and its '5' recovery rating,
indicating that S&P expects a modest (10% to 30%; rounded
estimate: 15%) recovery to creditors in the event of a payment
default.

S&P subsequently withdrew the ratings at the company's request.
At the time of the withdrawal, ICA was still negotiating with its
debtholders to reach a definitive agreement on debt restructuring.

HOCHSCHILD MINING: Moody's Hikes CFR to Ba3; Outlook Stable
-----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has upgraded to Ba3 from B1 the
corporate family rating of Hochschild Mining plc. and its senior
unsecured notes due in 2021, issued by Compania Minera Ares
S.A.C.. The notes are fully and unconditionally guaranteed by
Hochschild Mining plc. and its main subsidiaries. The outlook was
changed to stable from positive.

Rating Actions:

Issuer: Hochschild Mining plc

Corporate Family Rating: upgraded to Ba3 from B1

Issuer: Compania Minera Ares S.A.C.

Gtd. Senior unsecured notes due 2021: upgraded to Ba3 from B1

Outlook Actions:

-- Outlook, changed to Stable

The upgrade to Ba3 incorporates Hochschild's enhanced operating
performance, characterized by higher production volumes, a
balanced sales mix (silver and gold contributing to 50% of sales
volumes) and a lighter cost structure, which will promote a
sustained strengthening of its financial and liquidity profiles.
The upgrade also reflects Moody's expectations for an ongoing and
steep deleveraging trend to under 1.0 time by year-end 2018,
supported by Moody's expectations of continued reduction in
absolute debt levels, as observed in the past year. Lower capex
requirements through 2019 compared to prior years and conservative
shareholder returns will also contribute to positive free cash
flow generation, providing operating flexibility. While stronger
precious metals prices (compared to late 2015/early 2016) also
contribute to the company's more robust performance in recent
quarters, its less concentrated business profile, lower costs and
capital intensity, and deleveraging initiatives provided a
stronger cushion for potential stress scenarios when compared to
past years.

RATINGS RATIONALE

Hochschild's Ba3 rating incorporates a competitive cost position,
positive free cash flow generation and conservative financial
policies. Enhancements to the company's business profile following
the integration of Inmaculada in July 2015 promote higher
production volumes and cost reductions, supporting sustained,
steady cash generation. The rating also mirrors Hochschild's low
debt profile, declining capex needs, ongoing deleveraging trend
and good liquidity. The ratings are constrained by Hochschild's
relatively small size compared to global peers, its limited
diversification in metals, number or operating mines and
geography, weighing on its capacity to absorb shocks and
increasing its susceptibility to precious metal price volatility.

The stable outlook is based on Moody's views that Hochschild will
continue to generate positive free cash flows, supported by stable
profitability, lower capex and limited shareholder distributions
while simultaneously reducing leverage. The outlook also reflects
the company's good liquidity profile and continued investments in
brownfield projects to increase reserves and ensure long-term
operating viability.

An upgrade could be considered with the maintenance of
Hochschild's competitive cost position and strong liquidity, as
well as its capacity to increase future production capacity while
it continues to deleverage. An upgrade of Hochschild's rating
could be considered if the company maintains positive free cash
flow generation and stable EBIT margins above 10% on a sustained
basis.

Downward pressure on Hochschild's rating could arise if
profitability or liquidity materially deteriorates as a result of
higher cash burn or dividend distribution, or the company
generates sustained negative free cash flow. Specifically, if EBIT
margins fall below 5%, leverage ratios trending towards 4.0 times
or interest coverage falls below 2.5 times, all on a sustained
basis. Disruptions to its operations or sustained pressure on
precious metals prices could also place downward pressure on the
ratings.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Global Mining
Industry published in August 2014.

Hochschild Mining PLC, headquartered in Lima, Peru, is primarily a
producer and seller of gold and silver, mined from its four core
underground mines, with three located in southern Peru and one in
southern Argentina. For the last twelve months ended December 31,
2016, Hochschild reported consolidated revenues of USD 688
million.

PETROTRIN: The Way Forward for Firm
-----------------------------------
Trinidad Express reports that the Energy Sub-Committee of the
Cabinet met to review the recently completed report on the
operations of State-owned Petrotrin.

The Sub-Committee, which is chaired by Prime Minister Dr. Keith
Rowley, made recommendations which will be forwarded to Cabinet
for its decision on the way forward for the energy company, the
Office of the Prime Minister said in a statement, according to
Trinidad Express.

The Petrotrin Review Committee was appointed by the Prime Minister
in March, following a Cabinet decision to review the operations at
Petrotrin in light of the company's falling revenues, allegations
of mismanagement and decreasing oil prices worldwide, the report
notes.


TRINIDAD & TOBAGO: Farmers Counting Losses
------------------------------------------
Stacy Moore at Trinidad and Tobago Newsday reports that residents
in Central Trinidad are still counting their losses as tens of
thousands of dollars in livestock drowned while entire fields of
food crops were destroyed by flooding left behind by Tropical
Storm Bret which struck and continued into the pre-dawn hours of
Tuesday, June 20.

Agricultural areas impacted in Central include Brasso Seco,
Caparo, Mamoral, Flanagin Town, Longdenville, Enterprise and
Endeavour. The farmers said that no amount of preparation was
enough to lessen the impact of the storm, according to Trinidad
and Tobago Newsday.

Many said they spent several hours securing their livestock, but
all in vain, the report notes.

"For the past 25 years I have been rearing livestock and this is
the first time I am faced with such great losses.

This is the first time I have seen so much water in all my life,"
said Fatima Baksh, 43, of Lynch Trace, Mamoral, the report relays.

The report notes that she said the rain started at 11.30 pm Monday
and did not stop for the next five hours.

"When I looked through the window, I saw flood water had reached
to the neck of my hogs.  I could not stay indoors and watch my
animals die . . . . I had to do something," the report quoted Mr.
Baksh as saying.   The mother of three said she and her husband
went out into the storm, the report relays.  "We took a chance and
walked through the flood which was rising by the minute."

The report notes that Mr. Baksh said while she was able to secure
the hogs on higher ground, 14 piglets and dozens of chickens and
ducks were swept away.

"I really tried to save them, but the water kept gushing and
pushing against me. I cried when I realized I could not save the
poor piglets," Mr. Baksh said, the report relays.  Farmer Rhiam
Ramnarine, 42, of Caparo said he was helpless as two dozen
chickens were carried away in the flood, the report notes.  "When
the water reached my chest, I knew it would be in vain to save my
animals. I have lost thousands of dollars from this one flood,"
Mr. Ramnarine added.

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.
