    Assured Guaranty withdraws PREPA lawsuit in Hurricane Maria aftermath

    Bond insurer Assured Guaranty Ltd said on Friday it voluntarily withdrew its lawsuit against Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority (PREPA) over the failure to apply pledged revenue to the payment of bonds because of the utility's need to focus on restoring the power grid damaged by Hurricane Maria. The bond insurer said it is not appropriate to be litigating these issues while continued emergency efforts are needed to restore electricity on the U.S. territory. The lawsuit, filed on Aug. 7, claimed that PREPA's failure to apply the revenues to the payment of the revenue bonds was "inconsistent" with the Special Revenues Provisions of the bankruptcy code and a violation of the U.S. Constitution.

    Trump Tweets Push Puerto Rico Bonds to New Lows

    President Donald Trump's apparent unwillingness to back rebuilding of hurricane-ravaged and already bankrupt Puerto Rico sparked yet another selloff in the bonds Thursday. Trump tweeted that Puerto Rico's financial crisis was "largely of their own making," and  added, "We cannot keep FEMA, the Military & the First Responders, who have been amazing (under the most difficult circumstances) in P.R. forever!" The closely watched 8% coupon general obligation bonds maturing in 2035 fell to 35 cents on the dollar, a new low. The New York Times notes in its story: The threat may mean less than it appears — federal government officials quickly said that they were not pulling out of Puerto Rico anytime soon.

    Assured Guaranty pulls Puerto Rico lawsuit, cites hurricane

    Puerto Rico bond insurer Assured Guaranty Ltd said late on Friday it voluntarily withdrew a complaint that challenged the legality of the island's fiscal turnaround plan, citing the devastating impact of Hurricane Maria. The move may temporarily ease Puerto Rico's financial problems as it struggles to get back on its feet after Maria hit last month, destroying the electrical grid and leaving most of the island's 3.4 million inhabitants without power. Assured Guaranty, along with a second insurer MBIA Inc , filed their lawsuit against the island's government and a federally appointed financial oversight board on May 3, a day after Puerto Rico announced a historic restructuring of its public debt.
