FACTBOX-Companies in Mexico and Brazil with dollar debt exposure

Wed 15th August, 2018 6:00am
By James Thorne Aug 15 (Reuters) - A currency crisis in Turkey has led to fears of a contagion effect in emerging markets as far as Latin America, with potential repercussions for companies holding large amounts of dollar-denominated debt. The lira has lost more than 40 percent this year and crashed to an all-time low to the dollar on Monday, hit by worries over political calls for lower borrowing costs and by worsening ties with the United States. urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL5N1V50FZ The plunge in the Turkish lira set off a wave of seemingly indiscriminate selling across emerging market assets, giving rise to fears that a crisis in one country could spill over to others. urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL5N1V41Y9 "When there is a steep depreciation we see pressure in credit measures," said Marianna Waltz, managing director at Moody's in Brazil. Companies that earn large shares of revenue in hard currencies abroad will be better protected than those with locally-generated revenues, Waltz said. Against the dollar, as of Tuesday the Brazilian real BRL=B had fallen 2.8 percent and the Mexican peso MXN= was 2.9 percent weaker since Thursday's close, the day before the Turkish lira's 13 percent plunge. The following Latin American companies have reported a significant portion of dollar-denominated debt.
