400 WALNUT: Asks Court to Extend Filing of Schedules Until Aug. 23
------------------------------------------------------------------
400 Walnut Associates, L.P., is asking the U.S. Bankruptcy Court
for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania to extend the deadline
for filing schedules of assets and liabilities and statement of
financial affairs until August 23, 2010.

The Debtor says that it has yet to fully complete the schedules
and the statement and anticipate that the documents won't be
completed by the current 14-day deadline after the filing of a
Chapter 11 petition.

                         About 400 Walnut

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania-based 400 Walnut Associates, L.P.,
filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on July 23, 2010
(Bankr. E.D. Pa. Case No. 10-16094).  Aris J. Karalis, Esq., and
Robert W. Seitzer, Esq., at Maschmeyer Karalis P.C., assists the
Company in its restructuring effort.  The Company estimated its
assets and debts at $10 million to $50 million.

Affiliates 23S23 Construction, Inc., (Case No. 09-12652) and
Carriage House Condominiums, LP (Case No. 09-12647) filed separate
Chapter 11 petition in April 2009.


400 WALNUT: Gets Court's Interim Nod to Use Cash Collateral
-----------------------------------------------------------
400 Walnut Associates, L.P., sought and obtained interim
authorization from the Hon. Stephen Raslavich of the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania to use
the cash collateral from the Petition Date through August 31,
2010.

The Debtor has a secured debt of $11,984,927 to prepetition lender
Sovereign Bank ("Lender"), successor-in-interest to Independence
Community Bank.  The amount owed is in connection with the
Debtor's refinancing of the real property located at 400-414
Walnut Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19106 in February 2004
through Independence Community Bank.  The debt has been sold to
4th Walnut Associates, L.P.

Arix J. Karalis, Esq., at Maschmeyer Karalis P.C., explained that
the Debtor needs to use cash collateral to fund its Chapter 11
case, pay suppliers and other parties.

As adequate protection of the interests of the Lender against
diminution in value of its interests in the Property and cash
collateral, the Debtor will grant the Lender replacement liens.
The Debtor will also pay to the Lender by September 3, 2010, all
net income for the period ending August 31, 2010, less the amount
of $2,500 which will be retained by the Debtor for any contingency
expenditure and the payment to the Lender will be a minimum of
$13,500.

The Debtor will use the collateral pursuant to a budget, a copy of
which is available for free at:

          http://bankrupt.com/misc/400_WALNUT_budget.pdf

The Court has set a further hearing for August 24, 2010, at 10:30
a.m. prevailing Eastern Time, on the Debtor's request to use cash
collateral.

Aside from debt to Sovereign, the Debtor also owes RAIT
Partnership, L.P., as mezzanine lender, $600,000.  The debt is
secured by a second mortgage on the Property and pledges of the
general and limited partnership interests in the Debtor.  The
Debtor also has other unliquidated debts of approximately $538,000
due numerous trade creditors of which the sum of approximately
$510,000 is disputed.

Associates, L.P.'s creditors on August 30, 2010, at 2:00 p.m.  The
meeting will be held at 833 Chestnut Street, Suite 501,
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

This is the first meeting of creditors required under Section
341(a) of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code in all bankruptcy cases.

All creditors are invited, but not required, to attend.  This

operations that would be of interest to the general body of
creditors.

ABITIBIBOWATER INC: Wachovia Directed to Release Trust Assets
-------------------------------------------------------------
U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Kevin Carey directed Wachovia Bank, N.A., as
trustee to the Amended and Restated Bowater Incorporated Benefit
Plan Grantor Trust, to release the Trust assets to the
AbitibiBowater Inc. and its units' estates for the benefit of the
Debtors' general creditors.

The Bowater Benefit Plan Grantor Trust, effective as of June 6,
2000, was established pursuant to the Trust Agreement.  The Trust
Agreement covers (i) the Bowater Incorporated Compensatory
Benefits Plan, as amended, which consists of two separate plans;
(ii) the Bowater Incorporated Benefits Equalization Plan, as
amended; and (iii) the Supplemental Benefit Plan for Designated
Employees of Bowater Incorporated and Affiliated Companies, as
amended.

The Trust Assets have a value of approximately $17.6 million, if
the life insurance policies are valued on a cash surrender basis
as of June 30, 2009; and approximately $41.8 million, if the life
insurance policies are valued on a death benefit payout basis
with cash investment assets valued as of March 31, 2010,
according to the Debtors.

Consistent with a certification filed with the Court, Judge Carey
also authorized the Debtors to keep the life insurance policies
in place and preserve their value on a death benefit payout
basis, including the payment of any premiums or change in
beneficiaries.

The Court, however, neither requires nor prevents the Debtors
from exercising their rights to obtain the cash surrender value
of the Policies.

According to the terms of the Trust Agreement, Bowater's Chapter
11 filing suspended the Benefit Plan Trustee's ability to pay
benefits to the Compensation Plan Participants and rendered the
Trust assets deliverable to Bowater.  In the event of Bowater's
bankruptcy or insolvency, all Trust Assets are subject to the
claims of Bowater's general creditors, the Debtors noted.

stockholders for the first six months of 2010 of $16.2 million, or
$0.23 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $2.7 million,
or $0.08 per diluted share for the first six months of 2009.

Results for the second quarter and the first six months of 2010
included the impact of a strike in Argentina which negatively
affected pre-tax income by an estimated $1.7 million.

At June 30, 2010, the Company had total assets of $1.080 billion
against total liabilities of $610.134 million, resulting in
stockholders' equity of $470.440 million.

                           *     *     *

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on April 6, 2010,
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services revised its outlook on Allis-
Chalmers to stable from negative.  At the same time, S&P affirmed
the 'B-' corporate credit rating.  S&P also affirmed the 'B-'
issue-level ratings on the company's $255 million 9% senior notes
due 2014 and the $250 million 8.5% senior notes due 2017.  The
recovery ratings remain unchanged at '4', reflecting S&P's
expectation of average (30% to 50%) recovery in the event of
default.

"The change in outlook is due to S&P's expectations that
conditions in the oilfield services sector have improved, albeit
tenuous, and that Allis-Chalmers' financial performance will
likely strengthen over the course of 2010," said Standard & Poor's
credit analyst Patrick Lee.  Also, the company faces a decreased
threat of violating its financial covenants as a result of
amendments to its credit facility.


ALLY FINANCIAL: Swings to $565-Mil. Net Income for Q2 2010
----------------------------------------------------------
Ally Financial Inc. reported net income of $565 million for the
second quarter of 2010, compared to a net loss of $3.9 billion for
the second quarter of 2009.  Core pre-tax income, which reflects
income from continuing operations before taxes and original issue
discount amortization expense from bond exchanges, totaled
$738 million in the second quarter of 2010, compared to a core
pre-tax loss of $1.3 billion in the comparable prior year period.

Results were also positively impacted by certain factors that may
moderate over the coming quarters, including gains on the sale of
auto loans under forward flow agreements, lease portfolio
remarketing gains resulting from high used vehicle prices, legacy
mortgage loan sale gains and gains from the insurance investment
portfolio.

Ally said the ResCap legal entity reported its second consecutive
profitable quarter, as second quarter 2010 net income totaled
$364 million, compared to a net loss of $841 million in the
comparable prior year period.  Pre-tax income from continuing
operations was $263 million for the 2010 second quarter, compared
to a pre-tax loss from continuing operations of $205 million in
the second quarter of 2009.  The entity required no additional
capital or liquidity support in the 2010 second quarter.

"Ally made substantial progress in the second quarter with all
operating segments posting a profit," said Ally Chief Executive
Officer Michael A. Carpenter.  "Ally is a fundamentally stronger
organization today than it was a year ago, and we are proud of our
central role in the recovery of the U.S. auto industry.  As a
result of Ally's quick action and the U.S. government's financial
support, approximately 1,400 Chrysler dealers, employing an
estimated 70,000 people, were able to keep their businesses open
and contribute to the stability of their communities.

"Over the past twelve months Ally has financed 82 percent of the
vehicles sold to nearly 5,000 GM and Chrysler dealers in the U.S.
In addition, the company financed 700,000 new vehicles for GM and
Chrysler consumers within the last year," said Mr. Carpenter.

"In the first half of 2010, Ally's new consumer auto originations
in the U.S. more than doubled compared to the first two quarters
of last year to about 400,000 units, reflecting about eight times
that of any other lender and demonstrating the company's
leadership as a full service auto finance provider," he concluded.

In charts furnished to securities analysts, Ally said assets total
$176.8 billion against $156.0 billion in total liabilities,
resulting in equity of $20.7 billion as of June 30, 2010.

In its press statement, Ally said consolidated cash and cash
equivalents were $14.3 billion as of June 30, 2010, compared to
$14.7 billion at March 31, 2010.  Included in the consolidated
cash and cash equivalents balance are: $621 million at ResCap;
$2.6 billion at Ally Bank, which excludes certain intercompany
deposits; and $823 million at the insurance businesses.

Ally's total equity at June 30, 2010, was $20.8 billion, compared
to $20.5 billion at March 31, 2010.  Ally's preliminary second
quarter 2010 tier 1 capital ratio was 15.3%, compared to 14.9% in
the prior quarter.  Ally's tier 1 capital ratio improved due to
net income, the sale of assets and the continued run-off of the
lease portfolio, partially offset by growth in consumer and
commercial receivables.

ARVINMERITOR INC: Posts $3 Million Net Loss for June 30 Quarter
---------------------------------------------------------------
ArvinMeritor Inc. reported financial results for its third fiscal
quarter ended June 30, 2010.

Quarterly highlights include:

    * Sales were $1.3 billion, up $333 million or 35 percent, from
      the same period last year.

    * Income before taxes was $31 million, compared to a loss of
      $21 million, in the third quarter of fiscal year 2009.

    * Net loss was $3 million, compared to a net loss of $164
      million, in the prior year's third quarter.

    * Adjusted EBITDA was $76 million, up $48 million from the
      same period last year.

    * Cash flow from operations was $47 million in the third
      quarter of fiscal year 2010, compared to $99 million in the
      same period last year.

    * Positive free cash flow for the fifth consecutive quarter of
      $33 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2010.

The Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2010, showed $2.8 billion
in total assets, $1.0 billion in long-term debt, $1.0 billion in
retirement benefits, and $324.0 million in other liabilities, for
$909.0 million in total stockholders' deficit.

"Higher revenues this quarter -- up 35 percent year-over-year --
indicate continued strength in the emerging markets and
improvements in our North American and European customer markets,"
said Chip McClure, chairman, CEO and president.  "In addition, our
adjusted EBITDA margin doubled from the prior year's third fiscal
quarter to six percent reflecting strong conversion of incremental
revenue to earnings through tight cost controls."

              Third-Quarter Fiscal Year 2010 Results

For the third quarter of fiscal year 2010, ArvinMeritor posted
sales from continuing operations of $1.3 billion, an increase of
approximately 35 percent from the same period last year led by
stronger truck demand in Europe and the Americas.  Income before
taxes was $31 million, compared to a loss of $21 million, in the
third quarter of fiscal year 2009.

Net income from continuing operations was $1 million or $0.01 per
diluted share, compared to a net loss from continuing operations
of $34 million or $0.47 per diluted share, in the same period last
year.

Adjusted income from continuing operations was $2 million or $0.02
per diluted share, compared to an adjusted loss from continuing
operations of $24 million or $0.33 per diluted share, in the same
period last year.  Adjusted income from continuing operations
reflects an effective tax rate of approximately 82 percent driven
by strong earnings in the emerging markets and the ongoing impact
of valuation allowances in the United States and Europe.

After the impact of discontinued operations, the net loss was $3
million, compared to a net loss of $164 million in the prior
year's third fiscal quarter.

Adjusted EBITDA was $76 million, up $48 million from the same
period last year.  The Company said it had strong margin
conversion on incremental sales despite the return of temporary
cost reductions implemented in fiscal year 2009 and the reduced
demand for certain military OEM and service products from 2009.

Free cash flow for the third quarter of fiscal year 2010 was $33
million, a decrease of $40 million compared to the prior year's
third fiscal quarter.  Free cash flow in the prior year's third
fiscal quarter was significantly benefited by lower working
capital due to the sharp decline in revenues during fiscal year
2009.

                              Outlook

For the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2010, the Company
anticipates:

    * Revenue to be slightly lower due to seasonal customer
      shutdowns.

    * Adjusted EBITDA to be slightly lower.

    * Adjusted income from continuing operations to be slightly
      lower.

    * Free cash flow before factoring and restructuring to be
      slightly negative.

    * Free cash flow to be slightly negative primarily due to the
      company's semi-annual interest payment on its fixed debt
      securities.

"We are optimistic about the positive volume trends we are seeing
both in Europe and North America, with the exception of military
products," said McClure.  "In addition, we are pleased with the
continuing market strength in South America, China and India -
particularly as we are taking actions to grow our business in
those regions of the world.  We are focused on continuing to
convert higher revenues to earnings as we strive to achieve our
long-term EBITDA margin target of 10 percent."

BAYOU GROUP: Goldman Sachs' Suit Backed by Industry Group
---------------------------------------------------------
Bob Van Voris at Bloomberg News reports that Goldman Sachs Group
Inc., got the support from the Securities Industry and Financial
Markets Association in its bid to overturn a $20.5 million
arbitration award to creditors of the failed hedge-fund Bayou
Group LLC.

According to Bloomberg, the association, which says it represents
the interests of "hundreds of securities firms, banks and asset
managers," filed a brief in federal court in New York on August 5
in support of Goldman Sachs, claiming the case "has potentially
industrywide implications, especially for clearing brokers."

The creditors claim Goldman Sachs facilitated the $400 million
fraud committed by Bayou co-founder Samuel Israel, which led to
the firm's collapse in May 2006.  The Financial Industry
Regulatory Authority, the independent regulatory group for the
securities industry, on June 24 issued a decision in favor of
Bayou's creditors in an arbitration targeting Goldman Sachs
Execution & Clearing LP for its role as the prime broker and
clearing broker for Bayou's hedge funds.

Goldman commenced a lawsuit before the U.S. District Court for the
Southern District of New York (Case No. 10-CV-5622) against the
Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors of Bayou last month to
overturn the decision.

                         About Bayou Group

Based in Chicago, Illinois, Bayou Group LLC operated and managed
hedge funds.  The hedge fund that turned out to be a Ponzi scheme
and a receiver was subsequently appointed.  The Company and its
affiliates were sent to Chapter 11 on May 30, 2006 (Bankr.
S.D.N.Y. Lead Case No. 06-22306) to pursue recoveries for the
benefit of defrauded investors.  Elise Scherr Frejka, Esq., at
Dechert LLP, represents the Debtors in their restructuring
efforts.  Joseph A. Gershman, Esq., and Robert M. Novick, Esq., at
Kasowitz, Benson, Torres & Friedman, LLP, represent the Official
Committee of Unsecured Creditors.  Kasowitz, Benson, Torres &
Friedman LLP is counsel to the Unofficial Committee of the Bayou
Onshore Funds.  Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal LLP represents
certain investors.  When the Debtors filed for protection from
their creditors, they reported estimated assets and debts of more
than $100 million.

Bayou has filed lawsuits against former investors who allegedly
received fictitious profits and an inequitably large return of
their principal investments.  Jeff J. Marwil, Esq., at Jenner &
Block, was appointed on April 28, 2006, as the federal equity
receiver.  The receiver commenced adversary proceedings to recover
certain fraudulent transfers made by Bayou Group to investors.

The Bayou fraud resulted in three guilty pleas. Daniel Marino, the
head of finance, was sentence to a 20-year prison term despite his
cooperation with prosecutors.  James Marquez, a Bayou co-founder,
was sentenced to four years and three months in prison and told to
pay $6.2 million in restitution.  Another founder, Samuel Israel
III, was sentenced to 20 years following his guilty plea in
September 2005.


BERNARD MADOFF: Picard Wins $180-Mil. Judgment vs. Vizcaya
----------------------------------------------------------
Erik Larson at Bloomberg News reports that Irving H. Picard, the
trustee for Bernard Madoff's investment-advisory business, won a
$180 million default judgment against Vizcaya Partners Ltd. over
claims the hedge fund profited from the conman's fraud.

According to the report, Bankruptcy Judge Burton Lifland entered a
default judgment after Vizcaya failed to respond to the lawsuit.

The lawsuit, Bloomberg relates, sought to recover money Vizcaya
withdrew from its Madoff account less than four months before
Mr. Madoff's December 2008 arrest.  The default judgment applies
to Vizcaya and affiliates Zeus Partners Ltd., Bermuda-based Siam
Capital Management and the Cayman Islands-based Asphalia Fund Ltd.

Mr. Larson notes that recovery of Vizcaya's damages may hinge on a
ruling by the Supreme Court of Gibraltar, which is holding about
$74 million on behalf of the hedge fund's bank, Banque Jacob Safra
(Gibraltar) Ltd.  The default doesn't apply to the bank, which was
also sued by Mr. Picard and is challenging the claims.  The
Gibraltar court took possession of Vizcaya funds through a case
filed against the hedge fund by financial authorities in the U.K.
territory on the southern tip of Spain.

According to Bloomberg, Mr. Picard has recovered more than $1.5
billion for Madoff victims.  His clawback lawsuits seek another
$15 billion from funds that funneled money to the fraud, as well
as Mr. Madoff's friends and family.

                    About Bernard L. Madoff

Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities LLC and Bernard L.
Madoff orchestrated the largest Ponzi scheme in history, with
losses topping US$50 billion.

On December 15, 2008, the Honorable Louis A. Stanton of the U.S.
District Court for the Southern District of New York granted the
application of the Securities Investor Protection Corporation for
a decree adjudicating that the customers of BLMIS are in need of
the protection afforded by the Securities Investor Protection Act
of 1970.  The District Court's Protective Order (i) appointed
Irving H. Picard, Esq., as trustee for the liquidation of BLMIS,
(ii) appointed Baker & Hostetler LLP as his counsel, and (iii)
removed the SIPA Liquidation proceeding to the Bankruptcy Court
(Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Adv. Pro. No. 08-01789) (Lifland, J.).

On April 13, 2009, former BLMIS clients filed an involuntary
Chapter 7 bankruptcy petition against Bernard Madoff (Bankr.
S.D.N.Y. 09-11893).  The case is before Hon. Burton Lifland.  The
petitioning creditors -- Blumenthal & Associates Florida General
Partnership, Martin Rappaport Charitable Remainder Unitrust,
Martin Rappaport, Marc Cherno, and Steven Morganstern -- assert
$64 million in claims against Mr. Madoff based on the balances
contained in the last statements they got from BLMIS.

On April 14, 2009, Grant Thornton UK LLP as receiver placed Madoff
Securities International Limited in London under bankruptcy
protection pursuant to Chapter 15 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code
(Bankr. S.D. Fla. 09-16751).

The Chapter 15 case was later transferred to Manhattan.  In June
2009, Judge Lifland approved the consolidation of the Madoff SIPA
proceedings and the bankruptcy case.

Judge Denny Chin of the U.S. District Court for the Southern
District of New York on June 29, 2009, sentenced Mr. Madoff to
150 years of life imprisonment for defrauding investors in
United States v. Madoff, No. 09-CR-213 (S.D.N.Y.)

CATALYST PAPER: Analyst Sees Below-Par Debt Swap Amid Bond Drop
---------------------------------------------------------------
Frederic Tomesco, writing for Bloomberg News, reports that
Catalyst Paper Corp. bonds have fallen to levels that suggest the
Company may attempt to force investors to exchange the notes at
prices below par to reduce its C$867.5 million ($852 million) of
debt.

Bloomberg, citing Trace, the bond-price reporting system of the
Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, reports that Catalyst's
7.38% senior unsecured note, due in March 2014, traded at 45 cents
on the dollar on August 4, down from 62 cents on December 23.
Bloomberg also relates Catalyst's 11% senior secured bond, due in
December 2016, traded at 77.25 cents on July 12, to yield 16.9%.

"The market is pricing in the possibility of a below-par exchange
offer at some point within the next year if results don't start to
improve significantly," Brian Bogart, an analyst at KDP Investment
Advisors Inc., told Bloomberg in a telephone interview from
Montpelier, Vermont.  "We've seen those kinds of exchange offers
with other distressed companies. That's why the bonds are priced
where they are."

Bloomberg further relates Mr. Hon said that Catalyst's debt
repayment schedule works in its favor.   In the next four years,
Catalyst has $35.5 million in 8.63% senior notes coming due in
June 2011, and $250 million of 7.38% notes due in March 2014.
DBRS rates Catalyst debt CCC, its second-lowest rating.

"The bond is very speculative," Mr. Hon told Bloomberg.  "The
likelihood of the company surviving is not high, but it doesn't
mean that they are doomed. They have time to adjust, especially if
the economy improves and newsprint prices pick up."

According to Bloomberg, Lyn Brown, a spokeswoman for Catalyst,
said August 4 that a debt exchange is "not part of our plans at
the moment."

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on August 4, 2010,
Catalyst Paper recorded a net loss of $368.4 million on sales of
$299.4 million for the second quarter of 2010.  Results were
significantly impacted by after-tax impairment and closure costs
of $302.0 million on the permanent closure of the Elk Falls and
Paper Recycling Divisions.

During the second quarter, Catalyst closed the private placement
of US$110 million of Class B, 11% senior secured notes due
December 15, 2016, at an offering price of 86% of the principal
amount.  Net proceeds were $93.4 million after financing costs of
approximately $5.0 million.  At quarter-end, US$35.5 million of
8.625% senior notes due June 2011 were reclassified from long-term
debt to current liabilities.

                       About Catalyst Paper

Based in Richmond, British Columbia, in Canada, Catalyst Paper
Corporation (TSX:CTL) manufactures diverse specialty mechanical
printing papers, newsprint and pulp.  Its customers include
retailers, publishers and commercial printers in North America,
Latin America, the Pacific Rim and Europe.  With six facilities
located in British Columbia and Arizona, Catalyst has a combined
annual production capacity of 2.5 million tonnes.

                          *     *     *

In mid-March 2010, Moody's Investors Service downgraded Catalyst's
Corporate Family Rating to Caa1 from B3.  Catalyst's CFR downgrade
anticipates a marked deterioration in the company's financial
performance over the coming year, with significant EBITDA erosion
compared to 2009 levels and negative free cash flow generation.

Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it raised its long-term
corporate credit rating on Catalyst Paper Corp. to 'CCC+' from
'SD'.  "The ratings on Catalyst Paper Corp. reflect S&P's view of
the company's highly leveraged capital structure, history of weak
profitability, fiber supply issues, and its participation in
cyclical commodity markets," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst
Jatinder Mall.  In Standard & Poor's opinion, the company's
revenue diversity and improving cost profile partially mitigate
these risks.


CHARTER COMMS: Appeals on Plan Confirmation in Briefing Phase
-------------------------------------------------------------
Charter Communications, Inc., said in a regulatory filing with the
Securities and Exchange Commission that the appeals from the order
confirming its chapter 11 plan of reorganization are in the
briefing phase.  The appeals are before the U.S. District Court
for the Southern District of New York.

On March 27, 2009, when Charter filed for Chapter 11, JPMorgan
Chase Bank, N.A., for itself and as Administrative Agent under the
Charter Operating Credit Agreement, filed an adversary proceeding
in Bankruptcy Court against Charter Communications Operating, LLC,
and CCO Holdings LLC seeking a declaration that there have been
events of default under the Charter Operating Credit Agreement.

On May 7, 2009, Charter filed a Joint Plan of Reorganization and a
related disclosure statement with the Bankruptcy Court.  JPMorgan,
as well as other parties, objected.  The Bankruptcy Court jointly
held 19 days of trial in the JPMorgan Adversary Proceeding and on
the objections to the Plan.

The Plan was confirmed by order of the Bankruptcy Court on
November 17, 2009, over the objections of JPMorgan and various
other objectors.  The Court also entered an order ruling in favor
of Charter in the JPMorgan Adversary Proceeding.

Several objectors attempted to stay the consummation of the Plan,
but those motions were denied by the Bankruptcy Court and the U.S.
District Court for the Southern District of New York.

Charter consummated the Plan on November 30, 2009 -- completing a
financial restructuring that reduced debt by $8 billion -- and
reinstated the Charter Operating Credit Agreement and certain
other debt of its subsidiaries.

Six appeals were filed before the District Court relating to
confirmation of the Plan.  The parties initially pursuing appeals
were:

     (i) JPMorgan;

    (ii) Wilmington Trust Company, as indenture trustee for the
         holders of the 8% Senior Second Lien Notes due 2012 and
         8.375% senior second lien notes due 2014 issued by and
         among Charter Operating and Charter Communications
         Operating Capital Corp. and the 10.875% senior second
         lien notes due 2014 issued by and among Charter Operating
         and Charter Communications Operating Capital Corp.;

   (iii) Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., in its capacities as successor
         Administrative Agent and successor Collateral Agent for
         the third lien prepetition secured lenders to CCO
         Holdings under the CCO Holdings credit facility;

    (iv) Law Debenture Trust Company of New York, as the Trustee
         with respect to the $479 million in aggregate principal
         amount of 6.50% convertible senior notes due 2027 issued
         by Charter which are no longer outstanding following
         consummation of the Plan;

     (v) R2 Investments, LDC, an equity interest holder in
         Charter; and

    (vi) certain plaintiffs representing a putative class in a
         securities action against three Charter officers or
         directors filed in the United States District Court for
         the Eastern District of Arkansas -- Iron Workers Local
         No. 25 Pension Fund, Indiana Laborers Pension Fund, and
         Iron Workers District Council of Western New York and
         Vicinity Pension Fund, in the action styled Iron Workers
         Local No. 25 Pension Fund v. Allen, et al., Case No.
         4:09-cv-00405-JLH (E.D. Ark.).

Charter Operating amended its senior secured credit facilities
effective March 31, 2010.  In connection with the closing of these
amendments, each of Bank of America, N.A. and JPMorgan, for itself
and on behalf of the lenders under the Charter Operating senior
secured credit facilities, agreed to dismiss the pending appeal of
the Confirmation Order and to waive any objections to the
Confirmation Order.  The lenders filed their Stipulation of that
dismissal and waiver of objections and it was signed by the judge
on April 1, 2010 and the case dismissed.  On December 3, 2009,
Wilmington Trust withdrew its notice of appeal.  On April 14,
2010, Wells Fargo filed their Stipulation of Dismissal of their
appeal on behalf of the lenders under the CCO Holdings credit
facility.  This Stipulation was signed by the judge on April 19,
2010 and the case dismissed.

According to Charter, the remaining appeals by Law Debenture
Trust, R2 Investments and the securities plaintiffs are in the
briefing phase.  The Company cannot predict the ultimate outcome
of the appeals.

CHARTER COMMS: Posts $81MM Net Loss in 2nd Qtr Out of Bankruptcy
----------------------------------------------------------------
Charter Communications, Inc., on Wednesday reported financial and
operating results for the three and six months ended June 30,
2010.

Charter said net loss attributable to its shareholders was
$81 million in the second quarter of 2010, compared to a loss of
$112 million in the second quarter of 2009.  The improvement
resulted primarily from a reduction in reorganization costs
related to Charter's restructuring in 2009 offset by the decline
in income from operations in 2010, the elimination of net loss
allocated to non-controlling interest and a loss on extinguishment
of debt. Charter reported net loss per common share of $0.72 in
the second quarter of 2010, compared with a loss of $0.30 during
the same period last year.  The increase in loss per common share
is a result of a decrease in the number of shares outstanding as a
result of recapitalization upon emergence from Chapter 11
proceedings under the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.

Charter said second quarter revenues were $1.770 billion, up 4.9%,
on a pro forma basis and $1.771 billion, up 4.8%, on an actual
basis, compared to the year-ago quarter, as the Company continued
to grow its Internet, phone, commercial and ad sales businesses.

Net loss attributable to Charter shareholders was $57 million for
the six months ended June 30, 2010, compared to a loss of
$317 million for the first six months of 2009.  Charter reported
net loss per common share of $0.51 for the six months ended
June 30, 2010, compared to a loss of $0.84 in the same period last
year.

Pro Forma revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2010 were
$3.504 billion, up 4.7% year-over-year, and actual revenues for
the six months ended June 30, 2010 were $3.506 billion, up 4.6%
year-over-year.

As of June 30, 2010, Charter served approximately 5.3 million
customers, and the Company's 12.9 million revenue generating units
were comprised of 4.7 million basic video, 3.3 million digital
video, 3.2 million Internet and 1.7 million phone customers.

COMMUNITYSOUTH FINANCIAL: Undercapitalized, Q2 Loss at $2.2MM
-------------------------------------------------------------
CommunitySouth Financial Corporation filed its quarterly report on
Form 10-Q, reporting a net loss of $2.2 million on $1.6 million of
net interest income for the three months ended June 30, 2010,
compared to a net loss of $805,000 on $2.7 million of net interest

The Company's balance sheet as of June 30, 2010, showed
$464.1 million in assets, $458.1 million in liabilities, and
$6.0 million in stockholders' equity.

As of June 30, 2010, the Company is deemed to be "significantly
undercapitalized."  The Company did not meet the Consent Order
deadline to achieve and maintain a "well-capitalized" designation,
and therefore the Company submitted a revised capital plan to the
FDIC and the South Carolina Board of Financial Institutions on
July 28, 2010.

The Company has engaged financial advisors to assist the Company
in its efforts to raise additional capital, sell assets, and
explore other strategic alternatives to address its current and
expected liquidity and capital deficiencies.  To date, those
efforts have not yielded any significant results.

COMSTOCK MINING: Buys Exploration Licenses, Mining Claims
---------------------------------------------------------
Comstock Mining Inc., a.k.a. GoldSpring Inc., entered into two
separate exploration licenses in July, both with definitive
options to purchase patented and unpatented mining claims and
patented town site lots totaling over 100 acres, in the Devils
Gate and Chinatown Mining District, Lyon County, Nevada.  The
properties contain significant historical resources and rank as
one of the Company's top exploration and potential mine production
targets, second only to the Company's Lucerne Resource Area.

On July 1, 2010, the Company obtained an exclusive 180-day
exploration license with option to purchase four patented lode
claims totaling 95 acres known as the Dayton property.  This
property is contiguous with the Company's Spring Valley Dondero
holdings.  Under the purchase option, the price for the property
is $3,000,000 plus a 3% Net Smelter Return.  The Company will
receive credit for the full purchase price through a reduction in
the NSR by 75% until such time as the full $3,000,000 purchase
price has been credited back.  The purchase price will be paid
through an initial payment of $500,000, with the balance payable
in 20 equal, quarterly installments of $125,000, with no interest.

On July 21, 2010, the Company obtained an exclusive 180-day option
to acquire one patented lode claim and two unpatented lode claims,
adjoining and consolidating the Dayton property as shown on the
attached map.  The agreement allows the Company to acquire these
mineral claims for $100,000 plus a 2% NSR at any time during the
option period.

"These coordinated property acquisitions expand our control to
include almost four miles of the Silver City Branch of the
Comstock Lode," stated Corrado DeGasperis, Comstock Mining's Chief
Executive Officer.  "Our team of mining professionals will
leverage existing drilling and analysis to validate the value of
these properties."

The Dayton property has been the largest historical gold producer
in the south end of the Comstock Lode and in Lyon County as a
whole, having yielded a total of approximately 79,000 gold
equivalent ounces between 1870 and 1940 from underground workings
that extend to depths of about 800 feet.  Subsequent drilling
during the late 1970's and early 1990's peripheral to the old
workings outlined a drill-indicated resource of 2.5 million tons,
grading 0.05 ounces per ton gold and 0.33 ounces per ton silver.
The identified resource is near surface and a strong probability
exists of expanding the resource with deeper drilling.  The
drilling on the property to date includes 251 holes totaling
29,500 feet.  "The historical drilling, mineral and mine planning
data and analysis retrieved on these properties adds to our
already unprecedented library of historical and current data and
accelerates our ability to analyze and develop the full potential
of The Comstock Lode," stated Mr. DeGasperis.

Mineralization on the property is mainly represented by the Dayton
Lode, a sub-part of the Silver City branch of the Comstock Lode, a
major system of fault-controlled epithermal veining.  The Silver
City branch extends for a distance of about five miles through
Gold Hill, Silver City, the Dayton property, and into Spring
Valley.  In addition to areas lying immediately below the current
levels of drilling, there are also other portions of the lode on
the property that are not yet fully explored.

"The acquisition of the Dayton property is a significant addition
to the Company's portfolio.  Review of the historic drill data and
geologic mapping of a recently reopened underground cross cut
confirms our geologic team's interpretation of the Silver City
fault zone that was developed in the Lucerne resource area to the
north.  This area will be one of the Company's primary exploration
targets over the next several years," stated Larry Martin,
Comstock Mining's Chief Geologist.

CONTINENTAL AIRLINES: Plans $750MM Bond Sale to Repay Loans
-----------------------------------------------------------
Continental Airlines Inc. announced an offering of $750 million
aggregate principal amount of senior secured notes due 2015.  The
notes will be the senior secured obligations of Continental.

Continental's obligations under the notes will be guaranteed on a
senior secured basis by its subsidiaries Air Micronesia, Inc. and
Continental Micronesia, Inc.  The notes will be secured by certain
of Continental's routes and airport takeoff and landing slots and
airport gate leaseholds utilized in connection with these routes.

Certain of the collateral is currently encumbered under
Continental's $350 million secured term loan facility that is due
in June 2011 and the remainder is currently pledged as security
for the advance purchase of mileage credits under its branded
credit and debit card agreements.  Continental intends to use
approximately $350 million of the net proceeds from the offering
to repay the secured term loan facility and the balance for
general corporate purposes.

Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned as 'BB-' rating and
'1' recovery rating to Continental's proposed $750 million senior
secured notes, a 144A without registration rights.  The '1'
recovery rating indicates S&P's expectation of very high (90% to
100%) recovery in a payment default scenario.

with UAL (B3 corporate family from Moody's, on review for upgrade)
is completed under terms that enable the combined entity to
achieve the potential revenue and cost synergies that have been

CONTINENTAL AIRLINES: Settles Lawsuit Relating to Mulled Merger
---------------------------------------------------------------
To recall, on May 2, 2010, UAL Corporation, Continental Airlines
Inc. and JT Merger Sub Inc. entered into an Agreement and Plan of
Merger, providing for a business combination of Continental and
UAL.

Following announcement of the Merger Agreement on May 3, 2010,
three class action lawsuits were filed against Continental,
members of Continental's board of directors and UAL in the Texas
District Court for Harris County.  The lawsuits purport to
represent a class of Continental stockholders opposed to the terms
of the Merger Agreement.  The lawsuits make virtually identical
allegations that the consideration to be received by Continental's
stockholders in the Merger is inadequate and that the members of
Continental's board of directors breached their fiduciary duties,
by among other things, approving the Merger at an inadequate price
under circumstances involving certain conflicts of interest.

The lawsuits also make virtually identical allegations that
Continental and UAL aided and abetted the Continental board of
directors in the breach of its fiduciary duties to Continental's
stockholders.  Each lawsuit seeks injunctive relief declaring that
the Merger Agreement was in breach of the Continental directors'
fiduciary duties, enjoining Continental and UAL from proceeding
with the Merger unless Continental implements procedures to obtain
the highest possible price for its stockholders, directing the
Continental board of directors to exercise its fiduciary duties in
the best interest of Continental's stockholders and rescinding the
Merger Agreement. All three lawsuits have been consolidated before
a single judge.

On July 30, 2010, plaintiffs in the Consolidated Action filed an
amended and consolidated petition.  On August 1, 2010, the parties
to the Consolidated Action reached an agreement in principle
regarding settlement of the Consolidated Action.  Under the
Settlement, the Consolidated Action will be dismissed with
prejudice on the merits and all defendants will be released from
any and all claims relating to, among other things, the Merger and
any disclosures made in connection therewith.  The Settlement is
subject to customary conditions, including consummation of the
Merger, completion of certain confirmatory discovery, class
certification, and final approval by the District Court.

In exchange for that release, UAL and Continental have provided
additional disclosures requested by plaintiffs in the Consolidated
Action related to, among other things, the negotiations between
Continental and UAL that resulted in the execution of the Merger
Agreement, the method by which the exchange ratio was arrived at,
the procedures used by UAL's and Continental's financial advisors
in performing their financial analyses and certain investment
banking fees paid to those advisors by UAL and Continental over
the past two years.

The Settlement will not affect any provision of the Merger
Agreement or the form or amount of the consideration to be
received by Continental stockholders in the Merger.

The defendants have denied and continue to deny any wrongdoing or
liability with respect to all claims, events, and transactions
complained of in the aforementioned litigations or that they have
engaged in any wrongdoing.  The defendants have entered into the
Settlement to eliminate the uncertainty, burden, risk, expense,
and distraction of further litigation.  The foregoing description
of the Settlement does not purport to be complete.

On June 29, 2010, several purported current and future purchasers
of airline tickets filed an antitrust lawsuit in the U.S. District
Court for the Northern District of California against Continental,
as well as UAL and United Air Lines, Inc., in connection with the
Merger.  The plaintiffs allege, among other things, that
Continental and UAL are substantial competitors on routes operated
in the United States and that, if the Merger is consummated, they
will experience higher ticket prices, decreased aircraft capacity,
and diminished airline services.

The plaintiffs claim that the Merger, if consummated, would
substantially lessen competition or create a monopoly in the
transportation of airline passengers in the United States, and the
transportation of airline passengers to and from the United States
on international flights, in violation of Section 7 of the Clayton
Act.  Plaintiffs seek a preliminary and permanent injunction to
prohibit the Merger, as well as recovery of costs and attorneys'
fees.  The Settlement does not apply to this action. UAL and
Continental believe the plaintiffs' claims are without merit and
intend to defend this lawsuit vigorously.

DENNY'S CORP: Posts $5.5 Million Net Income for June 30 Quarter
---------------------------------------------------------------
Denny's Corporation reported results for its second quarter ended
June 30, 2010.  Net income of $5.5 million, including proxy
contest related costs and lower gains on the sale of assets driven
by 13 fewer units sold.

The Company's balance sheet for June 30, 2010, showed
$296.6 million in total assets and $409.5 million in total
liabilities, for $112.9 million in total stockholders' deficit.

Debra Smithart-Oglesby, Interim Chief Executive Officer and Board
Chair, stated, "Our second quarter showed encouraging signs of
progress towards our key areas of focus.  First, we have seen a
positive and sequential change in trend in same-store guest counts
within the quarter due primarily to guest acceptance of the
Company's everyday affordability strategy, led by the $2/$4/$6/$8
Value Menu.  This momentum carried into July as same-store sales
for company units of -1.7% was driven by this improving guest
count trend.  Second, excluding cost related to the proxy contest,
we continued to deliver growth in adjusted income before taxes.
Third, our franchisees continued to build new units and began the
process of converting an initial 70 Flying J sites to Denny's.
Last, we continue to refranchise targeted company units and to
further reduce our debt."

"Denny's leadership is committed to effectively executing towards
our strategic priorities of driving sales, growing profitability,
and growing unit development in traditional and non-traditional
venues which will result in the optimization of our balance sheet
and free cash-flow.  To execute these priorities we are committed
to bringing aboard high-caliber talent at the Board and Senior
Executive levels. Recently we made progress in this area with the
appointment of Gregg Dedrick to the Board and the hiring of
Frances Allen as Chief Marketing Officer.  We have also recently
reinitiated a full review of our cost structure."

                      Second Quarter Results

For the second quarter of 2010, Denny's reported total operating
revenue, including company restaurant sales and franchise revenue,
of $135.1 million compared with $155.8 million in the prior year
quarter.  Company restaurant sales decreased $20.2 million
primarily due to 37 fewer equivalent company restaurants compared
with the prior year quarter.  The decrease in restaurants resulted
from the sale of company restaurants to franchisees under FGI.

Company restaurant operating margin was 13.8%, a decrease of 0.5
percentage points compared with the same period last year driven.

Product costs decreased 0.1 percentage points to 23.3% of sales
primarily due to the impact of lower non ingredient costs and
lower commodity costs, partially offset by a higher mix of value
priced items.

Payroll and benefit costs decreased 0.4 percentage points to 41.2%
of sales primarily due to lower restaurant management incentive
compensation as well as efficiency improvements in team labor,
partially offset by the deleveraging effect of lower sales and
unfavorable worker's compensation claims development.

Occupancy costs increased 0.2 percentage points to 6.6% of sales
primarily due to the deleveraging effect of lower sales.

Other operating costs increased 0.9 percentage points to 15.2% of
sales.  Utility costs decreased 0.2 percentage points to 4.2% due
to the recognition of $0.4 million in losses on natural gas
contracts during the prior year quarter.  Marketing expenses
increased 0.5 percentage points to 4.3% of sales due to additional
spending related to the Super Bowl and the testing of the
$2/$4/$6/$8 value menu program.  Other direct costs increased 0.8
percentage points primarily due to write-off of excess promotional
materials and higher recruiting costs associated with new Flying J
units.

Franchise and license revenue decreased by $0.5 million to $29.8
million compared with $30.3 million in the prior year quarter.
The decrease in franchise revenue included a $0.6 million decrease
in franchise fees and $0.2 million decrease in royalties,
partially offset by $0.2 million increase in franchise occupancy
revenue.  The franchise fee decrease resulted from the sale of 13
fewer units to franchisees in the second quarter of this year.
The royalty revenue decrease was due to negative same-store
sales, partially offset by an additional 49 equivalent franchise
restaurants.  During the second quarter, Denny's franchisees
opened seven new restaurants, including the first franchise Flying
J Travel Center location, closed ten restaurants and purchased
nine company units.

Franchise operating margin decreased $1.0 million to $18.7
million, primarily due to the $0.6 million decrease in franchise
fee revenue and lower same-store sales, partially offset by the
additional 49 equivalent franchise restaurants.  Franchise
operating margin was 62.6%, a decrease of 2.1 percentage points
compared with the same quarter last year.  The decrease in margin
was primarily driven by temporary overhead costs associated with
converting the Flying J sites and by a decrease in franchise fees
due to fewer refranchisings, this was partially offset by the
higher contribution of higher-margin royalty revenue generated
through FGI.

General and administrative expenses decreased $2.8 million, or
17.6%, from the same period last year.  This reduction was driven
by a $1.9 million decrease in stock-based compensation, and a $2.6
million decrease in incentive and deferred compensation, partially
offset by $1.5 million in costs related to our recent proxy
contest.  The $1.9 million decrease in share-based compensation
resulted primarily from the change in our stock price during the
quarter.

Depreciation and amortization expense declined by $0.7 million
compared with the prior year quarter primarily as a result of the
sale of restaurants and real estate over the past year.  Operating
gains, losses and other charges, net, which reflect restructuring
charges, exit costs, impairment charges and gains or losses on the
sale of assets, decreased $3.6 million in the quarter.  The
decrease primarily resulted from fewer sales of company
restaurants to franchisees and higher severance and other
restructuring charges.

Operating income for the quarter decreased $4.5 million from the
prior year period to $12.9 million, primarily due to a $20.2
million decrease in total operating revenue attributable to the
sale of company restaurants and negative same-store sales.

Interest expense decreased $1.7 million, or 20.9%, to $6.5 million
as a result of the termination of our interest rate swap and a
$51.4 million reduction in debt from the prior year period.
Other nonoperating expense increased $1.3 million in the quarter
primarily due to the recognition of $0.7 million in losses on the
assets in our deferred compensation plan.

Denny's reported net income of $5.5 million for the second
quarter, or $0.05 per diluted common share, compared with prior
year period net income of $9.3 million, or $0.09 per diluted
common share.  Adjusted income before taxes, Denny's metric for
earnings guidance, decreased $1.1 million in the second quarter to
$6.2 million.  Excluding the $1.5 million of proxy contest related
costs, adjusted income before taxes increased $0.4 million, or 6%.
This measure, which is used as an internal profitability metric,
excludes restructuring charges, exit costs, impairment charges,
asset sale gains and losses, share-based compensation, other
nonoperating expenses and income taxes.

DESTINATION MATERNITY: Moody's Raises Default Rating to 'B2'
------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service revised Destination Maternity
Corporation's ratings outlook to positive from stable and raised
the company's Probability of Default Rating to B2 from B3.  The
company's B2 Corporate Family Rating and the B2 rating on its
secured term loan were affirmed.

The outlook change to positive reflects Moody's expectation for
sustained profitability and credit metric improvement over the
near-to-intermediate term, increased sales stemming from the
company's announced leased department expansion with Macy's set to
begin in February 2011, and continued good liquidity, the latter
of which is supported by balance sheet cash and the expectation
for positive free cash flow generation, excess revolver
availability and cushion under its financial covenants.

Destination Maternity's profitability and credit metrics have
improved over the past two years due to significant cost savings
initiatives, improved merchandise margins and sales growth from
leased department relationships, as well as increased internet and
international sales, all of which have helped offset the impact of
declining same store sales.  The company has also used free cash
flow to significantly reduce debt.  Moody's believes that
continued focus on cost control and positive free cash flow, when
coupled with the expanded leased departments relationship with
Macy's, could lead to further sustained improvement over the near-
to-intermediate-term.

Destination Maternity's B2 CFR continues to reflect the company's
weak, but improving, credit metrics, very small scale, and its
high seasonality, as most of its cash flow from operations is
typically generated during the fiscal third quarter.  The rating
is supported by its solid position in the maternity apparel sub-
sector of the retail market, well-known brand names, and its
national geographic footprint with locations in 50 states.

These ratings were affirmed:

* Corporate Family Rating at B2;

* Senior Secured Term Loan at B2 (LGD4, 55%) (previously LGD3,
  35%)

This rating was upgraded:

* Probability of Default Rating to B2 from B3;

The ratings outlook is positive.

The last rating action on Destination Maternity was on
September 2, 2009, when Moody's affirmed the company's B2 CFR and
changed the ratings outlook to stable from negative.

Destination Maternity Corporation, with headquarters in
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, is an independent retailer of
maternity apparel.  The company operates 1,678 retail locations,
including 702 stores in 50 states, Puerto Rico and Canada under
the Motherhood Maternity, A Pea in the Pod and Destination
Maternity trade names, in addition to its brand-specific internet
web stores.  Revenue for the twelve months ended June 30, 2010 was
$531 million.


DOLLAR THRIFTY: Posts $42.3 Million Net Income for June 30 Quarter
------------------------------------------------------------------
Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group Inc. reported results for the
second quarter ended June 30, 2010.  Net income for the 2010
second quarter was $42.3 million, or $1.40 per diluted share,
compared to net income of $12.4 million, or $0.55 per diluted
share, for the comparable 2009 quarter.   Net income for the
second quarter of 2010 included income of $0.15 per diluted share,
compared to income of $0.24 per diluted share in last year's
second quarter, both of which related to increases in fair value
of derivatives.

The Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2010, showed $2.5 billion
in total assets and $2.0 billion in total liabilities, for
$467.8 million in total stockholders' equity.

Non-GAAP net income for the 2010 second quarter was $38.0 million,
or $1.26 per diluted share, compared to non-GAAP net income of
$6.9 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, for the 2009 second
quarter.  Non-GAAP net income excludes the decrease in fair value
of derivatives and the non-cash charges related to the impairment
of long-lived assets, net of related tax impact.

The Company reported Corporate Adjusted EBITDA for the second
quarter of 2010 of $74.3 million, compared to $20.9 million in the
second quarter of 2009.  The Company noted that it incurred
merger-related expenses of $6.8 million during the quarter,
negatively impacting reported results.  Excluding these merger-
related expenses, Corporate Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter
of 2010 was $81.1 million.  Reconciliations of non-GAAP to GAAP
results are included in Tables 3 and 4.

"The Company's ongoing efforts in the areas of revenue management,
expense control and fleet management continue to reap significant
benefits, as demonstrated by our sixth consecutive quarter of
year-over-year double-digit growth in Corporate Adjusted EBITDA,"
said Scott L. Thompson, President and Chief Executive Officer.
"Our day-to-day focus continues to be on improving the Company's
return on assets while maximizing our cash flow.  I am pleased to
report that we are on track to make 2010 the most profitable year
in the history of the Company," said Mr. Thompson.

On a same-store basis, rental revenues for locations that were
open during the second quarter of both 2010 and 2009 were up 2.9
percent compared to last year's second quarter.   For the quarter
ended June 30, 2010, the Company's total revenue was $396.2
million, as compared to $399.6 million for the comparable 2009
period.  The decline in total revenue was primarily driven by a
decline in vehicle leasing revenue, resulting from a planned
reduction in vehicles leased to franchisees.  Vehicle rental
revenue for the quarter was consistent on a year-over-year basis
as an 80 basis point improvement in rate per day offset a 50 basis
point decline in rental days.  The second quarter 2010 average
fleet was down 0.8 percent compared to the second quarter of 2009,
while the ending fleet was up 0.9 percent from the second quarter
of 2009.

"We are pleased with the results for the quarter, having realized
increases in transaction days and utilization on a same-store
basis, while continuing to realize pricing improvement in a more
challenging and competitive pricing environment.  Based on our
solid second quarter results combined with our current reservation
book and our outlook for the economy, we expect revenue growth
going forward," said Thompson.

Vehicle depreciation per unit for the second quarter of 2010
totaled $193 per month as the Company continued to benefit from
the overall strength of the used vehicle market, in addition to
changes the Company made in 2009 to its fleet planning and
remarketing operations that were designed to lower fleet
depreciation costs per unit and mitigate enterprise risk.  Vehicle
utilization was 80.8 percent, up 20 basis points from last year's
second quarter.

Operating expenses were higher in the second quarter of 2010
compared to the same quarter in 2009 primarily as a result of $6.8
million of merger-related costs incurred, in addition to a $3
million increase in self insured vehicle liability reserves
related to a vicarious liability claim that is currently under
appeal by the Company.  These costs were partially offset by
ongoing cost reduction efforts and cost efficiency initiatives.
As a percentage of revenues, operating expenses totaled 62.7
percent of revenues in the second quarter of 2010, compared to
61.0 percent in the second quarter of 2009, primarily as a result
of the cost increases noted above.

Interest expense, net of interest income, for the second quarter
of 2010 declined $1.3 million on a year-over-year basis primarily
as a result of approximately $300 million in net reduction in the
debt outstanding for 2010 compared to 2009, partially offset by
reduced interest income as the Company deployed the excess cash
balances on hand in 2009 to reduce indebtedness, and to reinvest
in the rental fleet.

                         Six Month Results

For the six months ended June 30, 2010, net income was $69.6
million, or $2.31 per diluted share, compared to net income of
$3.5 million, or $0.15 per diluted share for the comparable period
in 2009.  Net income for the six months ended June 30, 2010
included income of $0.29 per diluted share, compared to income of
$0.38 per diluted share for the six months ended June 30, 2009,
both of which related to increases in fair value of derivatives.

Non-GAAP net income for the six months ended June 30, 2010 was
$61.0 million, or $2.02 per diluted share, compared to non-GAAP
net loss of $4.9 million, or $0.23 loss per diluted share, for the
same period in 2009.  Non-GAAP net income excludes the decrease in
fair value of derivatives and the non-cash charges related to the
impairment of long-lived assets, net of related tax impact.

The Company reported Corporate Adjusted EBITDA for the six months
ended June 30, 2010 of $123.7 million, compared to $18.5 million
for the six months ended June 30, 2009.  The Company noted that it
incurred merger-related expenses of $8.5 million during the first
half of 2010, negatively impacting reported results.  Excluding
these merger-related expenses, Corporate Adjusted EBITDA for
the six months ended June 30, 2010 was $132.2 million.

                   Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of June 30, 2010, the Company had $370 million in cash and cash
equivalents and an additional $114 million in restricted cash and
investments primarily available for the purchase of vehicles
and/or repayment of vehicle financing obligations.  The Company's
tangible net worth as of June 30, 2010 was $443 million.

During the quarter, the Company repaid $200 million of maturing
medium term notes utilizing a combination of restricted cash and
borrowings under newly completed fleet financing facilities.  As
previously reported, the Company completed a two-year $200 million
variable funding note facility in April of 2010 which was fully
drawn upon issuance.  In addition, during June, the Company
completed a three-year $300 million variable funding note facility
that is currently undrawn, and will provide additional liquidity
for repayment of the Company's next scheduled debt maturity of
$600 million of medium term notes that begin amortizing in
December 2010.

                        2010 Outlook - Update

In addition to announcing results for the quarter, the Company
reaffirmed its previously announced guidance updates for 2010 for
revenue, fleet costs and Corporate Adjusted EBITDA, as well as for
fleet costs for 2011.

As previously announced, the Company expects rental revenue growth
in 2010 of 1 to 2 percent over 2009 as growth in the back half of
2010 is expected to more than offset the decline realized during
the first half of the year.

The Company noted that it sold approximately 32,500 risk vehicles
during the first half of 2010 at a cumulative pretax gain of $53.2
million.  The Company also noted that it expects gains from
vehicle dispositions to decline significantly during the second
half of 2010, and as a result, expects its depreciation per unit
per month to be within a range from $300 to $310 per unit per
month during the third and fourth quarters of 2010.  Based on
results for the first half of 2010, combined with the fleet cost
outlook for the third and fourth quarters, the Company expects its
full year 2010 fleet cost to be $245 to $255 per unit per month.

Based on the Company's actual results through the second quarter
and its outlook for revenue and fleet costs for the remainder of
2010, the Company expects Corporate Adjusted EBITDA, excluding
merger-related expenses, to be within a range of $200 million to
$220 million for the full year of 2010.   The Company's 2009
Corporate Adjusted EBITDA was $99.4 million.

In addition, the Company reaffirmed its expected fleet cost for
2011 to be within a range of $300 to $310 per unit per month.  The
Company noted that the ongoing positive effects of changes made in
its operations and fleet management, combined with solid
macroeconomic factors in the used car market, are expected to
impact fleet costs in 2011 and beyond.

DOLLAR THRIFTY: Says Avis Offer Fails "Superior Proposal" Test
--------------------------------------------------------------
Scott L. Thompson, president and chief executive officer of Dollar
Thrifty Group Inc., responded to the proposal made by Ronald L.
Nelson, chairman and chief executive officer of Avis Budget Group.

Mr. Thompson said, "Thank you for your interest in our company; we
were pleased to receive your letter dated July 28, 2010.  Our
Board of Directors has received and carefully reviewed your
letter, and I would like to give you some observations based on
their review.

"Under the terms of our merger agreement with Hertz, in order for
Dollar Thrifty to pursue a transaction with Avis Budget, our Board
must make a determination that the Avis Budget proposal
constitutes a "Superior Proposal" within the meaning of that
agreement.  This, in turn, requires our Board to make the
following three findings with respect to the transaction proposed
by Avis Budget:

  * It is more favorable, from a financial point of view, to our
    stockholders than the Hertz merger;

  * It is supported by financing that is fully committed or
    reasonably likely to be obtained; and

  * It is reasonably expected to be consummated on a timely basis.

"We believe that your proposal would clearly satisfy the first of
these requirements.  Furthermore, we think that the draft
financing commitment letters that you have furnished, when
finalized in the manner described by your advisors, will provide a
reasonable basis for concluding that the second requirement can be
satisfied.  However, we do not have sufficient information to
establish satisfaction of the third prong of the requirements.

"As you are aware, our respective advisors have had numerous
discussions with respect to the antitrust risks attendant to a
merger of our companies.  Your legal advisors have stated clearly
their position, based on their econometric and other analyses,
that the divestitures to which you have committed in your proposal
are sufficient to remediate any competitive issues.  But citing
our inability to enter into a joint defense agreement with you as
well as our contractual obligations to cooperate with Hertz, your
advisors have been unwilling to disclose details of their data and
analyses beyond their general approach to the issues.

"More problematic is Avis Budget's unwillingness to provide a
reverse termination fee.  As we have stated on several occasions,
our Board accords substantial weight to the extent to which Avis
Budget is willing to share the risk of the ultimate regulatory
outcome.  This is especially true where Avis Budget is unable to
provide compelling objective evidence in favor of its antitrust
position.  Indeed, Avis Budget's unwillingness to offer a
meaningful reverse termination fee can only represent to us, to
the market and to any objective observer a lack of confidence by
Avis Budget in its position.  As you know, transaction certainty
has consistently been a key criterion for Dollar Thrifty in
evaluating possible transactions.  We feel strongly that in order
to merit favorable consideration by our Board, the relative
magnitude of the reverse termination fee should be at least
consistent with that of the Hertz transaction.  Obviously, a fee
of greater magnitude would demonstrate even greater confidence in
your ability to procure antitrust approvals, as well as your
willingness to take steps beyond your stated divestiture
commitment to do so.

"Your advisors have suggested that there is a natural trade-off
between the transaction consideration and deal certainty.
Unfortunately, the "Superior Proposal" determination simply does
not work in that way.  Each of the three prongs must be met, and a
higher price cannot compensate for a deficiency in deal certainty.
But even if we could blend the factors as you suggest, Avis
Budget's unwillingness to provide a reverse termination fee,
coupled with your disinclination to provide analytical data
supporting your antitrust position, leaves us incapable of making
such an assessment." said the company.

A full-text copy of the Company's earnings release is available at
no charge at http://ResearchArchives.com/t/s?67d6

For the second quarter 2010, EFH reported a consolidated net loss
attributable to EFH Corp. (in accordance with GAAP) of
$426 million compared to a reported net loss of $155 million for
the second quarter 2009.  The second quarter 2010 reported net
loss included (all after tax) $93 million in unrealized commodity-
related mark-to-market net losses largely related to positions in
EFH's long-term hedging program and $165 million in unrealized
mark-to-market net losses on interest rate swaps, partially offset
by an $83 million debt extinguishment gain resulting from second
quarter 2010 debt exchanges and repurchases.

"EFH had good operational performance in the second quarter of
2010, and our three new generation units are performing consistent
with our expectations," said John F. Young, CEO, Energy Future
Holdings Corp. "We continue to see some signs of economic recovery
in our large commercial and industrial segment."

For the six months ended (year-to-date) June 30, 2010, EFH
reported a consolidated net loss attributable to EFH Corp. (in
accordance with GAAP) of $71 million compared to reported
consolidated net income of $287 million for year-to-date 2009.

                          Exchange Offer

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter, Energy Future
Holdings said July 16 that its direct, wholly owned subsidiary,
Energy Future Intermediate Holding Company LLC, and EFIH's direct,
wholly owned subsidiary, EFIH Finance Inc., are commencing
exchange offers to exchange the outstanding 11.250%/12.000% Senior
Toggle Notes due 2017 and 10.875% Senior Notes due 2017 of EFH
Corp. for up to $2.18 billion aggregate principal amount of
10.000% Senior Secured Notes due 2020 to be issued by the Offerors
and an aggregate of $500 million in cash.  The maximum aggregate
principal amount of New Senior Secured Notes issuable in the
Exchange Offers will not exceed $2.18 billion.

The offer represents 72% of par for the 11.25%/12% 2017 toggle
notes and 79 cents in the dollar for the 10.875% 2017 notes.

The purpose of the Exchange Offers is to reduce the outstanding
principal amount, reduce interest expense and extend the weighted
average maturity, of the long-term debt of EFH Corp. and its
subsidiaries.

EFH Corp. is also soliciting consents from holders of Old Notes to
certain proposed amendments to the indenture pursuant to which the
Old Notes were issued.

Institutional investors holding 52% of the aggregate principal
amount of outstanding Old Notes have agreed to participate in the
Exchange Offers and the Consent Solicitation.

Energy Future Holdings has $20.4 billion in debt maturing in 2014.
The Company's overall long-term debt is $36.8 billion, excluding
debt by unit Oncor Electric Delivery Company LLC.

Energy Future Holdings Corp. is a privately held diversified
energy holding company with a portfolio of competitive and

                          *     *     *

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on July 21, 2010,
Moody's Investors Service downgraded the probability of default
rating for Energy Future Holdings to Ca from Caa2 and changed the
speculative grade liquidity assessment to SGL-4 from SGL-3.  EFH's
corporate family rating is affirmed at Caa1 and its rating outlook
remains negative.  Separately, Moody's affirmed the Baa1 senior
secured rating for Oncor Electric Delivery Company LLC and its
stable rating outlook.

The downgrade of the PDR reflects Moody's view that EFH's recent
debt exchange offer is a distressed exchange.  It also reflects
Moody's belief that the exchange transaction has a high likelihood
of closing.  During the exchange offer process, the Ca PDR will
prevail.  Upon closing of the exchange, the PDR will be
repositioned to reflect the limited default that will have
occurred and to consider Moody's views that future restructuring
activity is likely to continue.

"Upon closing of the exchange transaction, EFH is expected to have
reduced its total consolidated debt by almost $1 billion" said Jim
Hempstead, Senior Vice President "but Moody's incorporate a view
that additional restructuring activity is likely over the near to
intermediate term horizon".

comprised of our indebtedness under a certain TCEH Senior Secured
Facilities, substantially all of which matures in October 2014

Moody's said, "The CFR takes into consideration the very weak
financial profile, untenable capital structure, questionable long-
term business plan sustainability and material operating
headwinds, especially with respect to steadily increasing
environmental mandates."

Campbell, Calif.-based EnergyConnect Group, Inc., is a provider of
demand response services to the electricity grid.  Demand response

$9,774,924 in total assets and $9,746,384 in total liabilities,
resulting in a $28,540 stockholders' equity.

RBSM LLP, in New York, expressed substantial doubt about the
Company's ability to continue as a going concern after auditing
the Company's annual results for the year ended Jan. 2, 2010.  The
independent auditors noted that the Company is experiencing
difficulty in generating sufficient cash flow to meet its
obligations and sustain its operations.


FAIRPOINT COMMS: May Ask Court to Overrule Vermont Rejection
------------------------------------------------------------
FairPoint Communications Inc. may ask the bankruptcy court
presiding over its Chapter 11 cases to overrule the rejection of
the Vermont regulatory agency of its plan of reorganization,
according to John Dillon of Vermont Public Radio.

The Vermont Public Service Board issued a decision in late June
2010, denying approval of FairPoint's bankruptcy plan.  The
Vermont Board held that FairPoint has failed to demonstrate that
it has the financial capability to meet its obligations under
Vermont law and its license as a telecommunications carrier.

The Vermont regulatory approval was the last hurdle for FairPoint
as regulators in Maine and New Hampshire have given the Company
the "go" signal in implementing its bankruptcy plan.

Michael Smith, FairPoint's president for Vermont, told the
Vermont Public Radio in an interview that the Vermont Board
rejection halted their progress just "30 days or so" of their
anticipated emergence from bankruptcy.  "So what we've got to do
is look at this in terms of all of the approval that we've
gotten, not disrupt any of those approvals, and at the same time
try to move forward here in Vermont," the Vermont Public Radio
quoted Mr. Smith as saying.

FairPoint sent the Vermont Board a letter in July, urging the
regulator to keep the proceedings open.

The Company may try to strike a new deal with the Vermont Board,
or ask the Bankruptcy Court to overrule the Vermont Board ruling
and approve its bankruptcy plan.

However, Mr. Smith, according to the news source, said the
reorganization plan "was carefully choreographed and involved
multiple players, including the unions and the other states where
FairPoint does business, so any change to accommodate Vermont
could affect other moving parts of the bankruptcy reorganization
plan, that could end up delaying the process."

As FairPoint contemplates on its next move, the Bankruptcy Court
has adjourned the second and final phase of the plan confirmation
hearing in the case to an undetermined date.

FAIRPOINT COMMS: Proposes to Assume JC Zampell Agreement
--------------------------------------------------------
FairPoint Communications Inc. and J.C. Zampell Construction, Inc.,
are parties to an agreement dated April 1, 2008, whereby Zampell
provides house and grounds keeping, janitorial and related
services to the Debtors and their subsidiaries.

By this motion, the Debtors seek the Court's authority to amend
and assume the Zampell Agreement.

The amendment, according to James T. Grogan, Esq., at Paul
Hastings Janofsky & Walker, LLP, in New York, provides for certain
pricing concessions in connection with the assumption of the
Agreement.

The Debtors anticipate that the terms of the Amendment will
result in annual cost savings of approximately $1.5 million,
including certain service reductions.

The salient terms of the Amended Agreement are:

(1) The Amended Agreement will expire on April 30, 2013, with
     an option to renew for successive one-year periods;

(2) FairPoint Communications Inc. will pay Zampell $602,859 to
     cure any and all defaults relating to the Agreement, and in
     full satisfaction of Zampell's prepetition claim, which has
     been designated as Proof of Claim No. 621;

(3) If the Amended Agreement is assumed prior to August 31,
     2010, Zampell will reduce its current service rates by 5%.
     Zampell will reduce its rates an additional 5% as soon as
     the Debtors spend $1 million or more for services performed
     after May 1, 2010, under the Amended Agreement;

(4) Zampell will release the Debtors from all claims, causes of
     action, liabilities and other obligations arising prior to
     May 1, 2010; provided, however, that the release will not
     apply to unbilled or unpaid postpetition charges for
     services under the Agreement provide in the ordinary course
     by Zampell subsequent to February 28, 2010.

FAIRPOINT COMMS: Wants Removal Period Extended Until Oct. 25
------------------------------------------------------------
FairPoint Communications Inc. and its debtor affiliates seek a
further order from the Bankruptcy Court extending the time within
which they may file notices of removal of prepetition causes of
action through and including October 25, 2010, pursuant to Rules
9027(a)(2)(A) and 9006(b) of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy
Procedures.

The Prepetition Causes of Action refer to non-bankruptcy actions
filed in various venues throughout the United States.

James T. Grogan, Esq., at Paul Hastings Janofsky & Walker LLP, in
New York, reports that since the entry of the Second Removal
Extension Order in June 2010, the Debtors spent considerable time
and attention in administering their Chapter 11 cases.  They
expended time and effort in pursuing confirmation of their Plan
of Reorganization.  Those efforts culminated in the commencement
of the Phase I Confirmation Hearing and the entry of the Phase I
Order.  The Court, however, has not yet entered a final
confirmation order on the Plan.  The Debtors are also actively
reviewing, and where appropriate, filing objections and motions
to estimate more than 8,000 proofs of claim that have been filed
in their cases.

As a result of these activities, the Debtors have not had an
opportunity to fully examine the Prepetition Actions to determine
the feasibility or benefit of removing each Action.

"The ability to remove pending litigation is a valuable right
that FairPoint does not want to lose inadvertently," Mr. Grogan
says.  The Debtors aver that in connection with deciding whether
to remove any Action, they must conduct a comprehensive analysis
of the pending Actions.  However, they do not believe that they
will be able to make an informed decision as to whether to file
notices of removal in each Action by the current Action Removal
Deadline.

In this light, the Debtors are seeking to preserve their rights
by requesting a further extension of the Action Removal Period
for approximately three months.

The Court will convene a hearing to consider the Debtors' request
on August 26, 2010.

FERRO CORP: S&P Raises Corporate Credit Rating to 'BB-'
-------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it raised its
corporate credit rating on Cleveland-based Ferro Corp. to 'BB-'
from 'B'.  The outlook is stable.

S&P also assigned its 'B' issue-level rating and '6' recovery
rating to Ferro's proposed $250 million senior unsecured notes due
2018 to be drawn down from its shelf registration dated July 27,
2010.  The '6' recovery rating indicates S&P's expectation for
negligible (0% to 10%) recovery in the event of a payment default.

S&P also raised the issue-level rating on Ferro's $172.5 million
6.5% convertible senior unsecured notes due 2013 to 'B' from
'CCC+'.  The '6' recovery rating is unchanged, and reflects S&P's
expectation for negligible (0% to 10%) recovery in the event of a
payment default.  S&P will withdraw the ratings on the existing
notes if the issue is retired as planned.

"The upgrade reflects Ferro's improved credit measures due to
higher earnings and cash flow in the first six months of 2010,
S&P's expectation that these improvements can be sustained, and
lower debt levels relative to a year ago," said Standard & Poor's
credit analyst Liley Mehta.  A demand recovery and benefits of
ongoing restructuring actions helped to improve the company's
operating performance substantially in the first half of 2010 over
very weak results in the prior year.  These improvements, combined
with a meaningful pay down of debt, have lifted the ratio of funds
from operations to total debt to about 28% as of June 30, 2010,
from trough levels of 9% in 2009.  If Ferro completes the
financing plan as proposed, it will benefit from lower interest
costs and extended debt maturities.

The company expects to use a portion of the net proceeds from the
senior notes offering to purchase its 6.50% convertible senior
notes due 2013 in a cash tender offer that will expire on Aug. 23,
2010.  The remaining proceeds from the notes offering, along with
borrowings under the proposed $350 million revolving credit
facility (unrated) would be used to repay all borrowings
outstanding under the company's existing credit facility.
The ratings on Ferro Corp., a producer of electronic materials,
ceramic glaze, inorganic pigments and colorants, polymer
additives, and specialty plastics, reflect its fair business risk
profile and aggressive financial risk profile.

The company's business position benefits from a diverse portfolio
of performance materials and chemicals (generating revenues of
about $1.9 billion) that supports the expectation for improved
profitability as economic conditions improve, extensive geographic
and customer diversification, and an improved cost structure.  The
company enjoys good customer and geographic diversity with the top
10 customers accounting for 15% of sales, and sales generated
outside the U.S. accounting for 54%.  Offsetting factors include
vulnerability to raw material cost fluctuations, significant
exposure to residential and commercial construction markets, and
the discretionary nature of many products which renders their
demand highly sensitive to extended cyclical downturns.
Additionally, some business segments (such as polymer additives at
15% of sales) consist of products whose profitability is suffering
because of markets that are commodity-like and highly competitive.

The company has six business segments including Electronic
Materials, Color and Glass Performance Materials (which include
high-quality glazes, enamels, pigments, dinnerware decoration
colors), Performance Coatings (which include porcelain enamel for
appliances and cookware), Polymer Additives, Specialty Plastics,
and Pharmaceuticals.  Electronic materials is a key business, and
the company is a worldwide leader in conductive pastes for solar
cells.  This segment offers the highest growth prospects with
demand for metal pastes and powders used in solar cells and plasma
displays expected to continue to propel volume growth.  However,
Ferro remains exposed to downturns in its key end markets,
including construction materials and electronics, and demand
softness contributed to weaker operating results in 2009.
Operating results have improved substantially in 2010 supported by
a recovery in customer demand, particularly in the electronic
materials segment (due to conductive pastes and powders) and
performance coatings, and benefits of ongoing restructuring
actions.  However, the markets for appliances (which mainly affect
Ferro's porcelain enamel business), residential housing, and
automobiles will likely continue to be sluggish in the near term.

The stable outlook indicates that S&P expects the company to
maintain credit metrics at appropriate levels, even if sluggish
economic conditions persist in the near term.  The company's
improved cost structure, recovering market demand trends, and
above par credit measures are supporting factors.  The successful
completion of the proposed financing plan would further solidify
the company's position at the current rating by extending debt
maturities, and reducing interest costs.  S&P views liquidity as
adequate, and it could further improve from current levels, if the
participants under Ferro's precious metals program no longer
require cash collateralization in the year ahead.

S&P could raise the rating, if Ferro maintains an FFO to total
adjusted debt ratio of more than 25% consistently and if the
macroeconomic outlook improves meaningfully over the next 12 to 18
months.  Although S&P expects operating results to remain stable
in the next few quarters, S&P could lower the ratings if
unexpected business challenges result in decreased liquidity,
negative free cash flow from operations, and a deterioration in
the FFO to total adjusted debt ratio to below 12%.  Such a
scenario could result from operating margins deteriorating to less
than 10% and significant volume declines if the pace of economic
recovery falters considerably in the remainder of 2010 and in
2011.


FGIC CORP: Sharps Extends Exchange Offer for RMBS Until Aug. 10
---------------------------------------------------------------
Sharps SP I LLC has extended the expiration date of its offer to
exchange residential mortgage-backed securities and asset-backed
securities insured by Financial Guaranty Insurance Company.

The last time for holders to tender Eligible Insured Securities in
the offer is 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on August 10, 2010.

Sharps SP I on July 29 announced the results of its exchange offer
and the status of certain discussions with holders of Eligible
Insured Securities as of July 28.  As of July 28, (i) Eligible
Insured Securities representing $2,495,379,545 in current unpaid
principal balance measured as of April 30, 2010 have been tendered
into the offer, (ii) non-binding agreements have been reached by
the Offeror or FGIC and Eligible Insured Securities holders to
tender Eligible Insured Securities totaling $121,808,237 in
aggregate current unpaid principal balance measured as of April
30, 2010, and (iii) letters of transmittal have been completed,
although the Eligible Insured Securities have not yet been
delivered, with respect to Eligible Insured Securities totaling
$846,909,885 in current unpaid principal balance measured as of
April 30, 2010.  The aggregate current unpaid principal balance of
the Eligible Insured Securities represents 37.2% of all Eligible
Insured Securities subject to the exchange offer.

The offer was originally set to expire on April 29, 2010, but has
been extended several times.

On June 14, FGIC agreed to provide additional consideration in the
form of consideration surplus notes in connection with the
Exchange Offer.  FGIC, however, said the consideration surplus
notes may only be issued if the New York State Insurance
Department approves an application for issuance to be filed by
FGIC.

FGIC will not provide any additional amounts or types of
consideration to consummate the exchange offer.

On June 29, FGIC informed Sharps SP I that it has reached
definitive agreements or agreements in principle relating to
certain ABS CDOs and other obligations -- Other Restructuring
Transactions.  The Other Restructuring Transactions are among
those originally contemplated as contributing to FGIC having a
policyholders' surplus of at least $220 million, a condition to
the offer.  Pursuant to the Other Restructuring Transactions, FGIC
will agree to pay $233 million in aggregate to mitigate, commute
or terminate its exposure with respect to those ABS CDOs and other
obligations, which have an aggregate current principal balance of
approximately $4.4 billion.  The Other Restructuring Transactions
are conditioned upon, among other things, the successful closing
of the offer and, if applicable, completion of definitive
documentation acceptable to the parties thereto.

FIBREK'S INC: Moody's Assigns 'B1' Rating on New Secured Loan
-------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned Fibrek's Inc. new secured term
loan a B1 rating and upgraded the company's corporate family
rating to B2 from B3, and the company's liquidity rating SGL-2
from SGL-3.  The rating outlook was changed to stable.  The
upgrade reflects the company's increased financial flexibility
following the deleveraging from its recent recapitalization as
well as the conversion of the company to a tax-paying corporation
from a distribution-focused income trust structure, which had
constrained the company's ratings.  In addition, the upgrade
recognizes the company's improved liquidity position and debt
maturity profile.

Fibrek's B2 corporate family rating reflects the company's cost
competitive asset base with good backward integration into energy
supply, improved capital structure and good liquidity profile.
Offsetting these strengths is the company's limited flexibility
due to its small scale, lack of diversification and the inherent
volatility of the company's market pulp business.  The company has
limited operational flexibility with only one virgin fiber based
market pulp mill in Canada and two recycled based pulp mills in
the US.

The stable outlook reflects Moody's expectation that Fibrek will
maintain good liquidity and generate acceptable normalized credit
protection measures for its rating.

Fibrek's SGL-2 rating reflects the company's good liquidity
position.  The company's liquidity is primarily comprised of
approximately CND$50 million of availability (as of June 30th,
2010) under the company's new CND$75 million asset base revolving
credit facility that matures in 2013 and $25 million in cash (pro
forma for the recent recapitalization).  Moody's estimates modest
free cash flow generation with no debt maturities over the next 12
months.  Covenant issues are not expected over the near term.

The ratings are constrained by Fibrek's small scale and focus on
the volatile market pulp segment.  However, if the company is able
to diversify its product or geographic diversification while
sustaining strong credit protection metrics, upward ratings
pressure may develop.  Quantitatively, this may result if Fibrek
is able to sustain normalized (RCF-CapEx)/TD exceeding 10% while
maintaining good liquidity.

Fibrek's ratings could come under downward rating pressure if pulp
market conditions deteriorated suddenly leading to a material
weakening of the company's liquidity profile.

Upgrades:

Issuer: Fibrek Inc.

  -- Probability of Default Rating, Upgraded to B2 from B3

  -- Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating, Upgraded to SGL-2 from
     SGL-3

  -- Corporate Family Rating, Upgraded to B2 from B3

Assignments:

Issuer: Fibrek Inc.

  -- Senior Secured Bank Credit Facility, Assigned 33 - LGD3 to B1

Outlook Actions:

  -- Outlook, Changed To Stable From Negative

Withdrawals:

Issuer: Fibrek Inc.

  -- Senior Secured Bank Credit Facility, Withdrawn, previously
     rated B2, LGD3, 38%

Moody's last rating action was on 10 July 2009 when Fibrek's CFR
was downgraded to B3 from B1 concurrent with a revision of the
company's outlook to negative from stable.

Fibrek is the successor entity of SFK Pulp Fund following the
company's conversion to a tax paying corporation from a publicly
traded income trust.  Headquartered in Longueuil, Quebec, Fibrek
operates a northern bleached softwood kraft pulp mill in Saint-
Felicien, Quebec (approximately 450 kilometers north of Montreal)
and two recycled bleached kraft pulp mills in Menominee, Michigan
and Fairmont, West Virginia.


FIRST DATA: Loan Amendments Won't Affect Moody's 'B3' Rating
------------------------------------------------------------
First Data Corporation's announcement that the company intends to
seek amendments to its senior credit facilities will not impact
the company's B3 corporate family rating, probability of default
rating, instrument ratings, or stable outlook.

The last rating action was on May 7, 2009, when Moody's downgraded
First Data Corporation's corporate family rating to B3 from B2.

With over $9.6 billion in total revenues for the twelve months
ended March 30, 2010, headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, First
Data Corporation is a leading provider of electronic commerce and
payment solutions for financial institutions, merchants, and other
organizations worldwide.

FORD MOTOR: Newest Vehicles Boost Growth; July Sales Up 5%
----------------------------------------------------------
Ford Motor Co. said in a statement that its newest vehicles helped
the company continue to grow as Ford, Lincoln and Mercury dealers
delivered 166,092 new vehicles in July -- a 5% increase versus a
year ago, when "Cash for Clunker" sales started to surge.

Year-to-date sales totaled 1.12 million, up 24%, with growth
across Ford's full family of cars (up 21%), utilities (up 19%) and
trucks (up 32%).

"Customers are rewarding Ford for providing the performance they
want and the fuel economy they need," said Ken Czubay, Ford vice
president, U.S. Marketing, Sales and Service.  "New class-leading
powertrains are the 'secret weapon' in every new product we are
bringing to market."

The Ford Fiesta, which offers 40 miles per gallon EPA highway fuel
economy, eclipsed 3,000 sales in its second month in America and
has been well-received by California customers.  Highly acclaimed
in Europe, Asia, and North America, the Fiesta is the first car
developed under the ONE Ford global product development system.

Sales for the 2011 F-Series Super Duty were 63% higher than a year
ago, capturing more than 50% of the heavy duty pickup segment.
Ford recently announced it will begin production of the most
powerful diesel engine ever installed in a heavy-duty pickup
(best-in-class 800 lb.-ft. of torque and 400 horsepower).  In
addition, the Super Duty's 6.7-liter Power Stroke diesel will
provide improved fuel economy - a full 20% better fuel efficiency
than the 2010 model.

"In an industry-first customer loyalty program, Ford will provide
the power upgrades free of charge to all current owners of a 2011
Super Duty diesel pickup," said Mr. Czubay.

Retail sales for the Mustang were 43% higher than a year ago.
Since the arrival of the 2011 model featuring new V-6 and V-8
engines with more horsepower and improved fuel economy, Mustang's
share has climbed to levels not seen since January 2009.

"With our broad range of products -- from Fiesta to Super Duty --
Ford is connecting with consumers," said Ken Czubay, Ford vice
president, U.S. Marketing, Sales and Service.  "Ford and its
dealers continue to offer customers the strongest value
proposition in the industry - class-leading fuel economy, quality
and growing resale values."

In July, Ford retail sales were up 5% versus a year ago, and Ford
appears to have gained retail market share for the 21st time in
the last 22 months. Fleet sales were up 2%, reflecting higher
sales of Ford's hard-working trucks to commercial customers.

                          About Ford Motor

Headquartered in Dearborn, Michigan, Ford Motor Co. (NYSE: F) --
http://www.ford.com/-- manufactures or distributes automobiles
across six continents.  With about 200,000 employees and about 90
plants worldwide, the company's automotive brands include Ford,
Lincoln, Mercury and Volvo.  The Company provides financial
services through Ford Motor Credit Company.

The Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2010, showed
$191.9 billion in total assets and $197.4 billion in total
liabilities, for $5.4 billion in total stockholders' deficit.

In August 2010, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services raised its
corporate credit rating on Ford Motor Co. and FordMotor Credit Co.
LLC to 'B+' from 'B-'.   "The upgrade reflects S&P's reassessment
of Ford's business risk profile to weak from vulnerable, and its
financial risk profile to aggressive from highly leveraged," said
Standard & Poor's credit analyst Robert Schulz.  S&P believes Ford
is making progress in stabilizing, and perhaps improving, its U.S.
market shares  Still, S&P believes underlying business risks
remain high.


FORESIGHT ENERGY: S&P Assigns 'B-' Corporate Credit Rating
----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it assigned its 'B-'
corporate credit rating to Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.-based
Foresight Energy LLC.  The rating outlook is positive.

At the same time, S&P assigned a 'B' issue-level rating, one notch
above the corporate credit rating, to the company's proposed
$400 million senior unsecured credit notes due 2017.  The recovery
rating on these notes is '2', indicating the expectation that
lenders can expect substantial (70% to 90%) recovery in the event
of a payment default.  The ratings are based on preliminary terms
and conditions.

The notes are being sold pursuant to Rule 144A and will not be
registered securities.  Proceeds from the proposed note offering
will be used to repay existing indebtedness.

"The 'B-' corporate credit rating reflects the combination of the
company's highly leveraged financial profile and its vulnerable
business risk profile," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst
Marie Shmaruk.  "The rating also reflects the risks inherent in
building out its planned mines on time and budget, its lack of
operating diversity, and the high fixed cost nature of longwall
mining."

In addition, the company will need to obtain customers and
contracts for significant amounts of planned production from mines
currently under construction during the next few years.  Also, the
challenges of coal mining, including operating problems, price
volatility, transportation bottlenecks, weather-related
disruptions, and increasingly stringent environmental and safety
regulations remain key risks.

GANDER PARTNERS: Automatic Stay Extended to Bank Loan Guarantors
----------------------------------------------------------------
WestLaw reports that a preliminary injunction would issue to
prevent a bank from pursuing state court lawsuits against
guarantors of the Chapter 11 debtors' debt. The assets of the
guarantors, the debtors' principals, were a source of funds for
the debtors' reorganization efforts, and preservation of the
principals' credit standing would play a vital role in the
debtors' reorganization efforts. The relatively limited harm to
the bank if this state court litigation was delayed while the
debtors pursued reorganization efforts that sought to pay the bank
in full by refinancing its loans had to be balanced against the
significant harm to the debtors if the lawsuits were not
temporarily stayed. Moreover, the principals each had contributed
their time, energy and money to the debtors in the past and were
capable of doing so in the future, especially if not burdened with
defense of the state court litigation.  In re Gander Partners LLC,
--- B.R. ----, 2010 WL 2802668 (Bankr. N.D. Ill.) (Cox, J.).

Gander Partners LLC, Copper Peak Development Corp., Prairie View
Development Corp., sought chapter 11 protection (Bankr. N.D. Ill.
Case Nos. 10-08877, 10-08879 and 10-08882) on Mar. 3, 2010.  Scott

GARLOCK SEALING: Says Asbestos Panel Counsel's Fees Unreasonable
----------------------------------------------------------------
Garlock Sealing Technologies LLC complains that the hourly rates
at which the Official Committee of Asbestos Personal Injury
Claimants proposes to pay Caplin & Drysdale, Chartered are
unreasonable.

In its application, the Asbestos Claimants Committee says it
intends to pay no less than eight attorneys rates above $500 per
hour, including one attorney a rate of $860 per hour and another
at a rate of $950 per hour, Jonathan C. Krisko, Esq., at Robinson
Bradshaw & Hinson, P.A., in Charlotte, North Carolina, counsel to
the Debtors, points out.

Mr. Krisko argues that the Application does not make a sufficient
showing whether those rates, which are substantially higher than
other professionals retained in the Debtors' Chapter 11 cases,
are customary for work "of this nature and in this venue."

The Application also fails to provide specific reasons and
information concerning the specific professionals that warrant
that substantial compensation, Mr. Krisko contends.  In fact, the
Debtors requested that Caplin provide this information to them
for their review, he discloses.   In addition, the Application
fails to make clear that the rates proposed do not exceed rates
Caplin charges other clients for similar services, he asserts.

The Debtors, therefore, ask the Court to deny the Application to
the extent the Asbestos Claimants Committee seeks the current
proposed rates.

GARLOCK SEALING: Wants to Remove Civil Actions Until March 31
-------------------------------------------------------------
Garlock Sealing Technologies LLC and its debtor affiliates ask
Judge George R. Hodges of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Western District of Northern Carolina to extend the time within
which they may file notices of removal of civil actions and
proceedings to March 31, 2011.

Section 1452 of Judiciary Procedures Code provides in pertinent
part that a party may remove any claim or cause of action in
a civil action other than a proceeding before the United States
Tax Court or a civil action by a governmental unit to enforce that
governmental unit's police or regulatory power, to the district
court if the district court has jurisdiction of the claim or cause
of action.

Rule 9027 of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure provides
that if the claim or cause of action in a civil action is pending
when a case under the Bankruptcy Code is commenced, a notice of
removal may be filed only within the longest of (A) 90 days after
the order for relief in the case under the Bankruptcy Code, (B) 30
days after entry of an order terminating a stay, if the claim or
cause of action in a civil action has been stayed under Section
362 of the Bankruptcy Code, or (C) 30 days after a trustee
qualifies in a Chapter 11 reorganization case but not later than
180 days after the order for relief.

Rule 9006 of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure permits the
Court to enlarge the period to remove actions provided by Rule
9027.

As of the Petition Date, Garlock had about 100,000 asbestos claims
pending against it.  The Debtors are also involved in other civil
trial matters and appeals.

For this reason, the Debtors seek an extension of the Removal
Period to avoid multiple filings seeking extensions of the
deadline with respect to suits where the stay is lifted at a later
date, and to ensure that if a deadline is set by operation of Rule
9027, that deadline be extended automatically by operation of the
prayed-for order until no earlier than the proposed March 31, 2011
deadline.

Jonathan C. Krisko, Esq., at Robinson Bradshaw & Hinson, P.A., in
Charlotte, North Carolina -- jkrisko@rbh.com -- tells the Court
that at this time, the Debtors have not had an adequate
opportunity to determine whether to remove any prepetition
actions, which may be subject to removal.  For one, he says, the
number of Prepetition Actions that may be subject to removal are
so numerous that they do not permit individual evaluation at this
time concerning whether removal would be beneficial to the Debtors
and their estates.  He further contends that many Prepetition
Actions are correlated with claims that will be the subject of
claims proceedings and common issue litigation.  Given the process
of claims and claims evaluation, objection, and litigation, it
would be premature to conclusively identify any specific
Prepetition Actions that should be removed, he says.

Until the Debtors are able to make an informed decision regarding
the advisability of removing any or all of the Prepetition
Actions, the Debtors believe that the most prudent and efficient
course of action is to extend the removal period until March 31,
2011, Mr. Krisko maintains.

GARLOCK SEALING: Wins Nod to Assume Daikin-America Contract
-----------------------------------------------------------
Garlock Sealing Technologies, LLC, and Daikin-America, Inc., are
parties to an executory contract for the consignment and purchase
of resin materials used in Garlock's manufacturing operations.

As of the Petition Date, Garlock owed Daikin-American $407,010 for
its April and May, 2010 invoices.  Garlock has also used $90,154
worth of Daikin-American materials, between the last invoice date
and the Petition Date.

According the Debtors sought and obtained the Court's permission
to assume the Contract and pay $497,165 as cure amount under the
Contract.

Shelley K. Abel, Esq., at Rayburn Cooper & Durham, P.A., in
Charlotte, North Carolina, relates that Daikin-American is an
important vendor with whom the Debtors wish to continue their
business relationship.  The terms and conditions of the Contract
are favorable to Garlock, she further notes.  She also assures
the Court that payment of the cure amount will cause no
disruption to the Debtors' businesses because the Debtors have
cash on hand exceeding the cure amount.

General Growth Properties, Inc., and its 125 debtor affiliates
submitted to Judge Allan L. Gropper of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court
for the Southern District of New York their First Amended Joint
Plan of Reorganization and accompanying Disclosure Statement on
August 2, 2010.  A list of the Plan Debtors is available for free
at http://bankrupt.com/misc/ggp_Aug2PlanDebtors.pdf

Under the First Amended Plan, REP Investments LLC, an affiliate of
Brookfield Asset Management; Fairholme Capital Management and
Pershing Square Capital will provide $8.395 billion, instead of
$8.55 billion, of capital commitments to GGP to facilitate its
emergence from Chapter 11, Marcia L. Goldstein, Esq., at Weil,
Gotshal & Manges LLP, in New York, relates.

Specifically, a $1.345 billion reinstatement of the 5.375% Rouse
Notes, the 6.75% Rouse Notes and the 7.20% Rouse Notes will
replace the previously contemplated $1.5 billion five-year term
loan to GGP, Ms. Goldstein explains.  The Teacher Retirement
System of Texas' $500 million investment in shares of New GGP
common stock at $10.25 per share, which will replace the
Investors' $500 million equity backstop, will remain, she says.

The First Amended Plan contains these key modifications to the
July 12, 2010 Joint Plan of Reorganization and Investment
Agreements with:

  (1) Reinstatement of $1.3 billion of Rouse Bonds due in 2012
      and 2013.

      GGP's emergence financing needs will be satisfied in part
      by the reinstatement of these bonds, so the company does
      not expect to need the previously contemplated term loan.

  (2) Enhancement of the clawback feature of the Investment
      Agreements, which gives GGP the ability to issue equity at
      higher prices and retire a portion of the lower-priced
      equity in the Investment Agreements, to extend the length
      of GGP's clawback right after the company emerges from
      bankruptcy.

      In addition, $350 million of Pershing Square's shares will
      be available for clawback for a period of 180 days after
      emergence.  In order to facilitate the extension of
      Pershing Square's clawback, $350 million of Pershing
      Square's initial investment will be in the form of a note
      rather than equity.  In the event these shares are not
      clawed back from Pershing Square, the company has the
      option to retire the note by putting to Pershing Square
      35 million shares at a price of $10.00 per share.

  (3) Conversion of the $250 million backstop equity commitment
      for a rights offering by Spinco to a $250 million stock
      purchase by the Sponsors at closing.

      The price of the stock has been set at the economically
      neutral price of $4.76 per share, reflecting the
      originally contemplated backstop investment at $5.00 per
      share, net of fees associated with the original rights
      offering.  This modification is expected to provide
      greater immediate liquidity to Spinco and allow the
      company to avoid the need for short-term financing.

  (4) Consent to a sale at closing by the Investors of up to
      $500 million of their allocated equity to an affiliate of
      The Blackstone Group on a pro rata basis.

      At closing, Blackstone Real Estate Partners VI L.P. may
      subscribe for about 7.6% of the New GGP Common Stock and
      Spinco Common Stock allocated to each of the Investors and
      receive an allocation of each Investors' New GGP Warrants
      and Spinco Warrants.  The closing commitments of each of
      the Sponsors are unaffected by these equity sales to
      Blackstone.

GGP filed with the SEC on August 3, 2010, full-text copies of the
Investment Agreements accessible for free at:

  * Amended and Restated Cornerstone Investment Agreement with
    REP Investments, at http://ResearchArchives.com/t/s?679f

  * Amended and Restated Stock Purchase Agreement with Pershing
    Square, at http://ResearchArchives.com/t/s?67a0

  * Amended and Restated Stock Purchase Agreement with Fairholme
    Fund, at http://ResearchArchives.com/t/s?67a1

A blacklined copy of the Investment Agreements, as modified on
August 2, 2010, is available for free at:

   http://bankrupt.com/misc/ggp_Aug2InvPacts_blacklined.pdf

GGP, in a public statement dated August 2, 2010, said the
modifications provide it more flexibility in managing its capital
structure.

"We are very pleased with our ability to continue to enhance the
Investment Agreements and our capital structure for the benefit of
the company and its stakeholders," said Thomas Nolan, president
and chief operating officer of GGP.  "The amended clawback rights
enhance our ability to sell $1.9 billion of equity at higher
prices than committed by the Investors in the original Investment
Agreements, market conditions permitting.  We have also improved
our flexibility to manage our balance sheet and access the capital
markets.  We remain on track to emerge from Chapter 11 in October
and continue to build on our leadership position in the industry.
At the same time, these modifications enhance Spinco's ability to
maximize value for its stakeholders."

If the Court determines that the Rouse Notes cannot be reinstated,
the Plan Debtors intend to source a $1.5 billion term loan and a
$300 million revolver to provide the additional financing
necessary to consummate the Plan and for post-Effective Date
operations, Ms. Goldstein says.

                   Modifications to New GGP
                     and Spinco Structures

As previously reported, GGP will be split into two publicly-traded
companies, "New GGP" and "Spinco" upon emergence.

The First Amended Plan notes that New GGP would commence a post-
emergence public offering.  The Plan Debtors say the New GGP Post-
Emergence Public Offering and the $2.15 billion New GGP
Mandatorily Exchangeable Pre-Emergence Notes Offering are intended
to replace a portion of the financing commitments for New GGP.

New GGP previously filed a registration statement on Form S-11
with the Securities and Exchange Commission on July 15, 2010, in
connection with the $2.15 billion New GGP Mandatorily Exchangeable
Pre-Emergence Notes offering.  If the New GGP Pre-Emergence Notes
are not issued, Fairholme, Pershing Square and Texas Teachers will
fund the committed amounts and GGP will have the option to
repurchase or replace up to 50% of the committed amounts pursuant
to a clawback mechanism, Bridge Note and put arrangement pursuant
to the stock purchase agreement with Fairholme, Pershing Square
and Texas Teachers.

The First Amended Plan further relates that the current executive
management of GGP will continue to serve in their positions at New
GGP:

* Chief Executive Officer: Adam Metz
* President and Chief Operating Officer: Thomas Nolan, Jr.
* Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer: Steven
  Douglas
* Senior Vice President and Chief Investment Officer: Joel Bayer
* Senior Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary: Ronald
  Gern
* Senior Vice President, Human Resources: Catherine Hollowell
* Interim Chief Financial Officer, Senior Vice President and
  Chief Accounting Officer: Edmund Hoyt

The Plan Debtors also prepared financial projections for New GGP
within a five-year period:

                              2010  2011  2012 2013 2014 2015

A full-text copy of New GGP's Financial Projections is available
for free at http://bankrupt.com/misc/ggp_NewGGPProjectns.pdf

As to Spinco, the First Amended Plan says about 32,500,000 shares
of Spinco Common Stock will be issued to GGP Limited Partnership
to effect a Spinco Share Distribution.  After that transaction,
Spinco will sell to the Investors an aggregate of 5,250,000 shares
of Spinco Common Stock at a purchase price of $47.619048 per share
pursuant to a Spinco Share Purchaser.  In addition, the number of
shares of Spinco common stock that the Investors will purchase
under the Warrants is modified from 80 million to 8 million shares
of Spinco common stock at $50.00 exercise price per share instead
of $5.00 per share.

In addition, the composition of the Spinco Board is modified to
comprise of nine members, one of whom will be designated by REP
Investments and three of whom will be designated by Pershing
Square.

The Plan Debtors also made modifications to a list of assets REP
Investments will contribute to Spinco, available for free at:

       http://bankrupt.com/misc/ggp_ModSpincoAssets.pdf

The First Amended Plan also clarifies that the Official Committee
of Unsecured Creditors, the Official Committee of Equity Security
Holders and the Fee Committee will continue in existence after the
effective date of the First Amended Plan for the sole purpose of
addressing matters concerning fees incurred in connection with
these Chapter 11 cases.

The Plan Debtors also prepared a feasibility analysis of Spinco
within a five-year period:

In other modifications, Class 4.23 is entitled to vote and holders
of that Class will be solicited to vote under the First Amended
Plan.  If the Class is determined to be unimpaired, votes will not
be considered.

The First Amended Plan also contains updated information relating
to the Debtors' Chapter 11 cases, including employee compensation
and the retention of Steven Douglas, as GGP's chief financial
officer.

Organization charts, corporate reorganization and spin-off process
will be filed with Plan Supplement.

         Disclosure Statement Hearing on August 19

In light of their filing of the First Amended Joint Plan of
Reorganization, the Plan Debtors ask the Court to approve the
Disclosure Statement explaining the First Amended Plan, as
containing "adequate information" pursuant to Section 1125(a) of
the Bankruptcy Code.

The Plan Debtors will also file a Plan Supplement containing,
among others, projections and schedules of executory contracts and
unexpired leases to be rejected or assumed under the First Amended
Plan, on September 30, 2010.
In a supplemental motion, the Plan Debtors ask the Court to
commence solicitation of the First Amended Joint Plan of
Reorganization in accordance with a modified (i) proposed
solicitation schedule and (ii) protocol.

The Plan Debtors' modified proposed solicitation timetable is:

  Event                                             Deadline
  -----                                             --------
  Disclosure Statement Objection             August 11, 2010
  Deadline

  Disclosure Statement Hearing               August 19, 2010

  Voting Record Date                         August 19, 2010

  Solicitation Deadline:            Five business days after
                                    the date of entry of an
                                    order approving the
                                    Disclosure Statement

  Deadline to File Plan Supplement        September 30, 2010

  Voting and Elections Deadline              October 7, 2010

  Confirmation Objection Deadline            October 7, 2010

  Voting Certification Deadline             October 14, 2010

  Confirmation Hearing:                     October 21, 2010

In light of the reinstatement of the Rouse Note Claims pursuant to
the First Amended Plan, the Rouse Note Claims Cash-Out Election is
no longer necessary to effectuate the First Amended Plan and have
been eliminated, Stephen A. Youngman, Esq., at Weil, Gotshal &
Manges LLP, in New York, tells the Court.

In addition, the First Amended Plan provides that if a holder of
an allowed Claim that is entitled to postpetition interest did not
set forth the contractual rate of interest or interest under state
law in a timely filed proof of claim, that holder must file a
written notice of an Applicable Rate and serve to the applicable
parties.  The Plan Debtors thus ask the Court to fix the
Applicable Rate Notice Deadline to October 7, 2010.

The Plan Debtors also propose to serve a copy of a Confirmation
Hearing Notice to all their creditors as of the Voting Record
Date.  The Confirmation Hearing Notice will set forth, among
others:

  (a) the date of approval of the Disclosure Statement,
  (b) the Voting Record Date,
  (c) the Voting and Elections Deadline,
  (d) the Applicable Rate Notice Deadline,
  (e) the time fixed for filing objections to confirmation of
      the First Amended Plan, and

  (f) the date, time, and place for the Confirmation Hearing.

Pursuant to Rule 2002(b) and (d) of the Federal Rules of
Bankruptcy Procedure, the Confirmation Hearing Notice will be
sent contemporaneously with the Solicitation Packages on or
before the Solicitation Deadline, Mr. Youngman says.  Thus, the
Notice of Confirmation Objection and Voting and Elections
Deadlines cited in the Original Solicitation Motion is no longer
necessary and has been eliminated, he relates.

Under the First Amended Plan, Disclosure Statement and Investment
Agreements, holders of GGPLP LLC Preferred Equity Units in Class
4.19, GGP LP Preferred Equity Units in Class 4.20 and GGP LP
Common Units in Class 4.20 are treated as unimpaired and are not
entitled to vote on the Plan.  Should the Court determine that
the interests in Class 4.19, Class 4.20 or Class 4.22 are
impaired, the Plan Debtors ask that the Court deem those classes
to have rejected the Plan and proceed to determine whether
Debtors have proved the elements necessary to satisfy Section
1129(b) of the Bankruptcy Code at the Confirmation Hearing
without need for any further solicitation.

The objections to the confirmation of the Plan must be writing and
served no later than 5:00 p.m. on October 7, 2010.

In that light, the Plan Debtors ask the Court to schedule the
confirmation hearing to the First Amended Plan for October 21,
2010, at 10:00 a.m.

The Plan Debtors further propose that the Court set 12:00 p.m. on
October 18, 2010, the first business day that is at least two
calendar days before the proposed October 21 Confirmation Hearing,
as the deadline for the Plan Debtors to file and serve replies or
an omnibus reply to any Confirmation Objections.

GENERAL MOTORS: Chevrolet-Buick-GMC-Cadillac Sales Up 25% in July
-----------------------------------------------------------------
General Motors Company reported that July sales for Chevrolet,
Buick, GMC and Cadillac increased by a combined 25% to 199,432
units.  Buick and Cadillac brands each sold more than twice as
many vehicles in July, compared with a year ago.

July marks the tenth straight month in which total and retail
sales for GM's brands increased year-over-year, demonstrating the
continued strengthening of each brand in the marketplace as GM
continues to rebuild momentum a year after its launch as a new
company.

"When we say we want to design, build and sell the world's best
vehicles, we're not talking about just one vehicle, one brand, or
one month," said Don Johnson, vice president, U.S. Sales
Operations.  "Our July results again reflect that each of our
brands has contributed significantly to our gains."

"The size and scope of the U.S. market demands a strong portfolio
of well-targeted brands," Johnson said.  "The success of
Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, and Cadillac month in and month out,
indicates that the new GM's brand strategy is sound."

Buick sold 16,799 vehicles in July, a 137% increase over last
year. Cadillac sales were 142% higher than last year as dealers
reported 14,919 deliveries.  These are the highest sales totals
for the two brands since August 2008.  Chevrolet July total sales
increased 12% compared to last year, and GMC total sales were up
27% during the month.

GM's newest vehicles including Chevrolet Camaro and Equinox, Buick
LaCrosse and Regal, GMC Terrain, and Cadillac SRX, CTS Coupe and
CTS Wagon continue to contribute significant sales gains.  Total
combined sales for these vehicles were up 77% in July and are up
211% year-to-date.

GM further strengthened its position as the industry leader in
crossover sales.  Total combined sales in July for the Chevrolet
Equinox, HHR and Traverse, Buick Enclave, GMC Terrain and Acadia,
and Cadillac SRX increased 41% in July and have risen 73% so far
this year.

Combined total sales for GM's full-size pickups, the Chevrolet
Silverado and Avalanche, and the GMC Sierra were up 22% during the
month, with year-to-date sales 14% higher than a year ago.

    Year-To-Date Gains Reflect Balanced Contribution of Brands

Year-to-date total sales for GM's four brands have risen 31% to
1,269,009 units, while retail sales for GM's brands have risen 18%
- outpacing the industry.

"Our four brands have sold 125,210 more vehicles this year than
our former company sold with eight brands during the same period
last year," Johnson said. "This gain has been a result of solid
consumer demand across our lineup of cars, trucks, and
crossovers."

Chevrolet has led the increase with total sales 28% higher through
July, compared to 2009.  Retail sales for Chevrolet have increased
12% for the year, propelled by the strong retail sales of the
Chevrolet Malibu, Camaro, Silverado, Equinox, and Traverse, which
are up a combined 33% for the year.

Buick remains one of the industry's fastest growing brands, with
total sales 60% higher than 2009 through July.  In the first seven
months of the year, retail sales of Buicks have increased 41% on
the strength of LaCrosse and Enclave which are up 175 and 14%,
respectively.

GMC total sales through July are 28% higher than 2009.  The
brand's retail sales have increased 30% year-to-date on the
strength of the GMC Terrain, Sierra and Acadia - up 326%, 13% and
21% respectively.

Total sales for Cadillac are up 46% for the year through July.
Retail sales for the brand are 32% higher this year, with the all-
new Cadillac SRX surging 487% - leading it to gain the most market
share in the luxury crossover segment so far this year.

Month-end dealer inventory in the U.S. stood at about 424,000
units, which is about 15,000 lower compared to June 2010, and
about 43,000 lower than July 2009.

GENERAL MOTORS: Wants Treasury to Sell Entire Stake at IPO
----------------------------------------------------------
Nick Bunkley at The New York Times reports that General Motors CEO
Edward E. Whitacre Jr., said Thursday the automaker wants the U.S.
government to sell its entire stake during an initial public
offering.

"We want the government out, period," Mr. Whitacre said in
comments after speaking at an automotive conference in northern
Michigan, according to NY Times. "We don't want to be known as
Government Motors."

According to NY Times, Mr. Whitacre said GM is drafting the
registration and plans to file it with the Securities and Exchange
Commission "in the near future."  NY Times notes that analysts
have been expecting GM to file regulatory documents by mid-August,
which would put it on track to go public by the end of the year.

The U.S. Department of the Treasury holds about 61% of GM after
its more than $50 billion in bailout loans to the automaker last
year.

NY Times notes that analysts have been expecting GM to sell part
of its shares during the initial offering, but Mr. Whitacre said
that the company anticipated selling them all at once.  According
to NY Times, Mr. Whitacre said eliminating government ownership
would be good for employee morale and would improve GM's image.

The NY Times also relates that GM executives say that underwriters
and banks are reporting a great deal of interest from hedge funds
and big money managers.  According to the report, Mr. Whitacre
said Thursday that he thought "the appetite is going to be big"
for GM stock and that the IPO could be the largest in United
States history, topping Visa's.  Visa raised about $19 billion
during an offering in March 2008.

NY Times relates that a Treasury spokesman, Mark Paustenbach,
declined to comment on Thursday.  NY Times recalls that the
Treasury issued a statement in June saying that GM would control
the timing of the offering but that the Treasury would "retain the
right, at all times, to decide whether and at what level to
participate in the offering, should it occur."

NY Times also relates Mr. Whitacre dismissed concerns by some
analysts that GM was moving too fast. Many have speculated that
the Obama administration, whose decision to help GM and Chrysler
last year was widely unpopular, wants the offering to occur before
the November elections.

GENERAL MOTORS: To Report "Impressive" Q2 Earnings Next Week
------------------------------------------------------------
Nick Bunkley at The New York Times reports that General Motors CEO
Edward E. Whitacre Jr., said after speaking at an automotive
conference in northern Michigan, that the automaker would report
"impressive" second-quarter earnings next week.  According to NY
Times, Mr. Whitacre hinted that GM's results would surpass its
first-quarter profit of $865 million.  GM's last profitable
quarter before this year was in 2007, the NY Times notes.

NY Times relates Mr. Whitacre said two consecutive quarters of
positive results would be enough to show potential investors that
"our future is pretty bright."  NY Times relates Mr. Whitacre
would not say how profitable GM was in the second quarter, but
added that anyone who liked the first-quarter results would be
more pleased with the April-to-June performance.

NY Times also reports that Mr. Whitacre said the automaker is
considering "reactivating" a closed plant to increase its
production capacity.  The report notes GM has been scrambling to
keep up with demand, particularly for its newest vehicles like the
Chevrolet Equinox crossover and Buick LaCrosse sedan. The company
has brought back about 7,000 employees since the bankruptcy.

NY Times, however, notes neither Mr. Whitacre nor Stephen J.
Girsky, GM's vice chairman for corporate strategy, would say which
plant could be reopened.  GM closed dozens of plants in recent
years, but two plants, in Spring Hill, Tenn., and Janesville,
Wis., were given standby status.  At the time, executives said the
plants could be brought online if more production were needed.

GRAHAM PACKAGING: Posts $37.8-Mil. Net Income for June 30 Quarter
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Graham Packaging Company Inc. reported results for the quarter
ended June 30, 2010.  Highlights include:

  * Net sales increased 11.5% to $652.8 million, compared with
    $585.7 million in the second quarter of 2009.

  * Adjusted EBITDA increased to $133.7 million, a $3.5 million
    increase over the second quarter of 2009.  Last twelve months
    adjusted EBITDA was $473.9 million.

  * Free cash flow for the first half of 2010 was $62.0 million
    due to strong second quarter performance.

  * Total debt, net of cash decreased to $2,104.7 million from
    $2,289.1 million at the beginning of 2010, a decrease of
    $184.4 million.

  * On July 1, 2010, the Company completed its acquisition of
    China Roots Packaging PTE Ltd., a plastic container
    manufacturing company located in Guangzhou, China.

  * The Company currently expects adjusted EBITDA for 2010 to be
    $478.0 million.

The Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2010, showed $2.0 billion
in total assets, $368.1 million in total current liabilities, $2.2
billion in long-term debt, $31.7 million deferred income taxes,
and $103.1 million in commitments and contingent liabilities,
resulting to $612.2 million in partners' deficit.

                        Second Quarter 2010

Net sales for the second quarter of 2010 increased by 11.5% to
$652.8 million due to higher volumes along with higher resin
costs, which are passed on to customers.  Adjusted EBITDA for the
quarter increased to $133.7 million, compared with $130.2 million
in the second quarter of 2009.  Operating income increased to
$90.8 million from $76.5 million in the second quarter of 2009.

"We are extremely pleased with our second quarter performance,"
said CEO Mark Burgess.  "Unit volumes improved as a result of
stronger end markets, and we continued to have success on
international fronts with new sales wins.  Our adjusted EBITDA
showed a $3.5 million improvement over last year as a result of
the volume improvements and our intense focus on productivity.
LTM adjusted EBITDA is now $473.9 million. We generated strong
free cash flow during the quarter, and have retired a significant
amount of debt so far this year.  Best of all, we successfully
closed our acquisition of China Roots on July 1, 2010.  This
represents Graham's first foray into the vast Chinese market, and
a terrific opportunity to serve our multinational customers."

By segment, sales in North America increased $64.7 million, or
12.7%, due to higher volumes and the increase in resin costs.
Sales in Europe were up $0.5 million, or 0.9%, as higher resin
costs helped offset unfavorable exchange rates and slightly lower
volumes.  Sales in South America were up $1.9 million, or 8.4%,
due to increased volume and price increases.  During the second
quarter of 2010, the Company continued to experience positive
momentum in its drive to convert legacy packaging into Graham's
technology-oriented performance packaging solutions.  This area
remains a driver of future growth for the Company.

Interest expense, net for the quarter was $41.7 million, an
increase of $4.7 million from the second quarter of last year, due
to the increased interest rate on the term loans which were
extended in May 2009.

                         2010 Year to Date

Net sales for the first half of 2010, increased by 7.9% to
$1,238.4 million due to higher volumes along with higher resin
costs, which are passed on to customers.  Adjusted EBITDA for the
first half of 2010 increased to $249.2 million, compared with
$237.7 million in the first half of 2009.  Operating income
decreased to $123.1 million from $138.5 million in the first half
of 2009 primarily due to a one-time fee of $35.0 million to
terminate a monitoring agreement, and $4.4 million in IPO bonuses
and other IPO-related expenses.  Excluding these items, operating
income increased by $24.1 million over the first half of 2009.

Free cash flow for the first half of 2010 was $62.0 million.

The Company retired $200 million of term loan debt during the
first half of 2010.  Approximately $129 million of the retirement
was funded by the IPO and the remaining $71 million was funded by
cash on hand.

                            2010 Outlook

For fiscal year 2010, the Company currently expects adjusted
EBITDA to be $478.0 million.

HAWKER BEECHCRAFT: Swings to $56.8-Mil. Net Loss for Q2 2010
------------------------------------------------------------
Wichita, Kansas-based Hawker Beechcraft Acquisition Company, LLC,
reported net sales for the three months ended June 27, 2010, of
$639.3 million, a decrease of $177.0 million compared to the
second quarter of 2009.  The decrease was largely attributable to
lower aircraft deliveries in the Company's Business and General
Aviation segment as a result of depressed demand across the
general aviation market.  During the second quarter of 2010, the
Company delivered 54 business and general aviation aircraft
compared to 78 during the same period in 2009.

Included in the second quarter 2009 results was a significant
number of King Air aircraft delivered under the U.S. Government's
Project Liberty program.  Project Liberty deliveries, which are
reported as part of the B&GA segment, concluded in late 2009.
Partially offsetting the decline in B&GA segment was continued
higher volume in the Trainer Aircraft segment.

The Company reported a net loss attributable to the parent company
of $56.8 million for the second quarter 2010 from net income of
$172.2 million for the same period a year ago.  The Company
reported a net loss attributable to the parent company of $120.3
million for the first half of 2010 from net income of $225.3
million for the same period a year ago.

At June 27, 2010, the Company had $3.420 billion in total assets
against $3.408 billion in total liabilities and $3.2 million in
non-controlling interest, resulting in total equity of $11.6
million.  At December 31, 2009, total equity was $122.2 million.

As of June 27, 2010, the Company had total indebtedness of $2.135
billion, including $55.3 million of short-term obligations payable
to a third party under a financing arrangement.  The Company also
had up to $75.0 million available for letter of credit issuances
under a synthetic letter of credit facility as of June 27, 2010.

The Company's Senior PIK-Election Notes permit the Company to pay
interest by increasing the principal amount thereunder rather than
paying cash interest through April 1, 2011.  The Company elected
to pay the April 2010 semi-annual interest payment on its Senior
PIK-Election Notes by issuing additional PIK-election notes rather
than by paying in cash.  On April 1, 2010, the Company notified
its noteholders it has elected to pay the September 2010 semi-
annual interest payment on its Senior PIK-Election Notes in cash.

On November 6, 2009, the Company entered into a second amendment
to its credit agreement.  The Second Amendment provides that
compliance with the maximum consolidated secured debt ratio test
under the Credit Agreement is waived.  The continuing
effectiveness of this waiver is subject to the condition that the
Company will not have made a restricted payment pursuant to
certain available restricted payment baskets under its Credit
Agreement.  If this condition fails to be satisfied, then the
waiver of the consolidated secured debt ratio covenant will be
revoked and the Company will be required to comply (and, with
respect to the two most recently completed fiscal quarters as of
the earliest date that such condition shall fail be satisfied, to
have complied) with the maximum consolidated secured debt ratio
test in the Credit Agreement.

The Second Amendment added a new minimum liquidity covenant which
requires the Company's unrestricted cash plus available
commitments under its revolving credit facility, determined in
each case as of the last day of such fiscal quarter, must be not
less than $162.5 million.

In addition, the Second Amendment added a new Adjusted EBITDA
covenant requiring that, to the extent the consolidated secured
debt ratio covenant is waived, for any fiscal quarter beginning
with the second quarter of 2011 for which any revolving facility
commitment is outstanding on the last day of such fiscal quarter,
the Company maintains a minimum Adjusted EBITDA as specified in
the Second Amendment.

The initial effectiveness of the Second Amendment was conditioned
upon, among other items, the permanent reduction of commitments
under the revolving credit facility by $137.0 million.  Following
the reduction in commitments, the total availability under the
revolving credit facility is $240.0 million after considering the
expected reduction due to the Lehman Brothers bankruptcy.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on December 20, 2009,
Moody's Investors Service affirmed Hawker Beechcraft Acquisition
Company's Caa2 Corporate Family and Probability of Default ratings
but lowered the rating on the company's senior secured bank
obligations to Caa1 from B3 following announcement of plans to
expand the size of its secured term loan.

The TCR on November 19, 2009, reported that Standard & Poor's
Ratings Services assigned its 'CCC+' issue-level rating to Hawker
Beechcraft's proposed $200 million incremental term loan, and
affirmed its 'CCC+' corporate credit rating on the Company.

Moody's actions followed several developments: an amendment to the
company's revolving credit facility reducing the size of the
commitment and revising financial covenants, a proposed increase
of $200 million to an existing $1.271 billion term loan,
disclosure of some $700 million of non-cash impairment and other
charges during the company's third quarter 2009.

Hawker Beechcraft amended its $400 million revolving credit
facility ($365 million net of Lehman's commitment of $35 million).
Moody's said this involved addressing the effective financial
covenant (waiving future compliance with a maximum net secured
debt/EBITDA test which was scheduled to tighten over the next
year) and decreasing the size of the facility to $240 million. The
latter also required a repayment of $125 million of previous
borrowings to keep outstanding amounts within the lower aggregate
commitment.  New financial covenants include a minimum defined
liquidity applicable while there is any utilization of the
facility, and a minimum EBITDA level which will be first measured
at the end of June 2011 and escalates thereafter.

Standard & Poor's credit analyst Roman Szuper said at that time,
"Because the revolving credit facility is fully drawn, a further
decline in demand for Hawker Beechcraft aircraft, lower customer
advances from fewer orders, and an inability to fully adjust
production rates and other costs could reduce the liquidity
cushion from cash balances and proceeds from the incremental term
loan." He added, "We are unlikely to revise the outlook to stable
in the near term, considering the difficult industry conditions
and pressures on the company's very weak credit protection
measures."

HEALTHSOUTH CORP: June 30 Balance Sheet Upside Down by $817MM
-------------------------------------------------------------
HealthSouth Corporation's balance sheet at June 30, 2010, showed
$1.7 billion in total assets and $2.1 billion in total
liabilities, resulting to $817.3 million in shareholders' deficit.

The Company though reported a net income of $57.5 million on
$496.9 of net revenues during the three months ended June 30,
2010, compared with a net income of $3.6 million on $481.6 million
of net revenue during the same period in 2009.

"The positive trends we experienced in the first quarter of 2010
continued into the second quarter as good volume growth, solid
pricing, and disciplined expense management resulted in growth in
all key, financial metrics," said Jay Grinney, President and Chief
Executive Officer of HealthSouth, in an earnings release.  "In
addition to strong performance across our existing portfolio, we
purchased a new hospital in Las Vegas, Nevada in the quarter and
recently announced the signing of a definitive agreement to
purchase another hospital in Sugar Land, Texas, as well as our
plans to begin construction of a new 40-bed hospital in the
Cypress area of northwest Houston during the fourth quarter of
2010.  Our growth pipeline remains strong, and we will continue to
pursue disciplined acquisitions that will bring high-quality
rehabilitative services to new markets and value to our
shareholders."

Adjusted Consolidated EBITDA for the second quarter of 2010 was
$103.7 million compared to $94.0 million in the second quarter of
2009, or an increase of 10.3%.

In February, the Company provided 2010 guidance which consisted of
adjusted income from continuing operations in the range of $1.60
to $1.70 per diluted share and Adjusted Consolidated EBITDA in the
range of $397 million to $407 million.  As a result of its strong
operating results for the first six months of 2010, the Company is
increasing its previously provided guidance for 2010.  Guidance
for adjusted income from continuing operations has been increased
to a range of $1.66 to $1.74 per diluted share, while guidance for
Adjusted Consolidated EBITDA has been increased to a range of $402
million to $410 million.

HELIX ENERGY: S&P Gives Stable Outlook, Affirms 'B' Rating
----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services revised its outlook on
international offshore company Helix Energy Solutions Group Inc.
to stable from negative.  S&P affirmed its ratings, including the
'B' corporate credit rating.

At the same time, S&P lowered the issue-level rating on Helix's
senior unsecured debt to 'B-' (one notch below the corporate
credit rating) from 'B' and revised the recovery rating to '5'
from '3', indicating expectations for modest (10% to 30%) recovery
in the event of a payment default.  These changes follow Helix's
$160 million impairment of exploration and production (E&P)
assets, which lowers S&P's assessment of the recovery value to
unsecured creditors.

The issue-level rating on the secured debt remains unchanged at
'BB-' (two notches above the corporate credit rating), with a
recovery rating of '1', indicating S&P's expectation of very high
(90% to 100%) recovery in the event of payment default.

"The outlook revision reflects Standard & Poor's Ratings Services'
view that the company's good liquidity, potential asset sale, and
international exposure should provide adequate protection at the
current rating category," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst
Marc Bromberg.  The Gulf of Mexico deepwater drilling moratorium
has affected the company's contracting business, particularly its
subsea construction and ROV and trencher operations.  Despite
this, the company's second-quarter results were better than the
first quarter.  However, much of this improvement came from the
company's international business largely as a result of seasonal
North Sea drilling, which S&P believes will decline in the latter
half of 2010.  S&P continues to be cautious about long-term
implications from the Gulf moratorium, particularly since the Gulf
represents nearly half of contracting services revenues.

The outlook revision also incorporates an improvement in Helix's
contracting services backlog, which stood at $413 million at
June 30, 2010 ($328 million in 2010), up from $314 million at
March 31, 2010 ($268 million in 2010).  Although the contracts can
typically be cancelled with little penalty, S&P views the backlog
positively, particularly given S&P's initial concern about the
impact of the drilling moratorium.

The stable outlook reflects S&P's view that Helix will maintain
acceptable credit metrics, despite a potential adverse impact from
the drilling moratorium on the contracting services business or a
possible longer-term shift from the Gulf.

S&P would consider a ratings downgrade if credit measures, such as
adjusted debt to EBITDA, were to trend materially above 6.0x, or
if liquidity were to decline materially from current levels.  For
this to happen, EBITDA, based on last-12 months EBITDA and total
debt remaining flat, would have to decline more than 37% to
$272 million.

S&P views the potential for positive ratings actions as limited in
the near term because S&P expects industry conditions to remain
challenging at least through 2010.

INTERTAPE POLYMER: Posts $2.7 Million Net Loss for June 30 Quarter
------------------------------------------------------------------
Intertape Polymer Group Inc. released results for the second
quarter ended June 30, 2010.  Highlights include:

  * Sales increased 18.7% to US$180.3 million year-over-year

  * Improved top-line performance from both divisions

  * ECP EBITDA positive for Q2 2010

  * Cash flow from operations before changes in working capital of
    $6.6 million

"Despite some renewed economic concerns as growth in the US and
elsewhere started to slow, Intertape's second quarter sales
increased both year-over-year and sequentially.  As well, our
Engineered Coated Products Division made meaningful progress.
However, the continuing volatility of raw material costs and
industry pricing pressures affected gross margins, particularly
in the Tapes and Films Division," said Intertape's Chairman, Eric
E. Baker.

Net loss for the second quarter of 2010 was $2.7 million or $0.05
per share, both basic and diluted, compared to a loss of $1.2
million or $0.02 per share, both basic and diluted, for the same
period last year.  The increase in net loss was primarily
attributable to raw material costs increasing more than selling
prices.  In addition, the Company's strong commitment to the
development of new products resulted in higher research and
development expenses. Net loss for the first six months of 2010
totaled $8.5 million compared to a net loss of $7.8 million for
the same period in 2009.

Second quarter sales increased 18.7% to $180.3 million, compared
to $151.9 million for the second quarter of 2009 and were up 4.1%
sequentially from $173.1 million for the first quarter of 2010.
The sales volume increased by approximately 12% over the second
quarter of 2009 due to some improvements in the overall economy,
sales of new products, and additional channel and market
development.  Selling prices for the second quarter increased
approximately 3% compared to the second quarter of 2009 and also
to the first quarter of 2010.  On a year-over-year basis, second
quarter sales for the T&F Division increased by 18.0% to $149.8
million while sales for the ECP Division increased by 22.3% to
$30.4 million.  Sales for the first six months of 2010 were $353.4
million compared to $291.0 million for the same period in 2009, an
increase of 21.5%.  This sales increase includes an approximately
19% increase in sales volume while selling prices were basically
flat.

Gross profit for the second quarter totaled $21.4 million,
compared to $21.5 million a year ago, reflecting a $2.2 million
decrease in the T&F Division and a $2.0 million increase in the
ECP Division.  Second quarter gross margin was 11.9% compared to
14.2% for the prior year and 11.3% for the first quarter of 2010.
Gross profit for the most recent period continued to be impacted
by high raw material costs and pricing pressures.

Selling, general, and administrative expenses were $17.9 million,
$1.3 million higher than the $16.6 million for the second quarter
of 2009, mainly the result of higher selling expenses related to
the 18.7% increase in sales, partially offset by lower general and
administrative expenses.  SG&A expenses declined by $1.0 million
over the first quarter of 2010 due to a reduction in professional
fees paid to third parties.

EBITDA for the second quarter was $10.4 million compared to $12.4
million for the second quarter of 2009 and $8.0 million for the
first quarter of 2010.  On a year-over-year basis, EBITDA was
lower in the second quarter of 2010, reflecting higher raw
material costs.  EBITDA was higher sequentially due to the lower
SG&A expenses in the second quarter and a higher gross profit
related to the increase in sales dollars.  EBITDA for the first
six months of 2010 was $18.4 million compared to $19.1 million in
2009.

The Company generated cash flows from operating activities before
changes in working capital items for the second quarter of $6.6
million compared to $8.5 million in the second quarter last year.
The decrease was due to an increase in net loss and pension
payments in excess of amounts expensed of $0.7 million.

Cash flows from operating activities decreased in the second
quarter by $11.2 million to negative $2.4 million from positive
$8.8 million in the second quarter a year ago.  Changes in working
capital items resulted in a net use of funds during the second
quarter of 2010 of $9.1 million due to an increase in trade and
other receivables of $8.7 million related to higher sales, an
increase in inventories of $3.2 million partially offset by an
increase in accounts payable and accrued liabilities of $2.9
million.

The continued efforts to better manage the balance sheet is well
reflected in Days Sales Outstanding and Days Inventory.   As
compared to the second quarter of 2009, DSO's and Days Inventory
declined from 49 days to 46 days and from 55 days to 51 days,
respectively.

                             Outlook

"The ECP Division posted a positive EBITDA for the second quarter
and strong top-line growth reflecting new products with higher
margins and improved product and channel mix.  The T&F Division
gross margin was under pressure due to the lag time in securing
sufficient price increases to fully offset rising raw material
costs," said Intertape's President and CEO, Greg Yull.

"While the building and construction industry is presenting signs
of softness after a modest rebound, the ECP Division is expected
to perform well in upcoming quarters.  The T&F Division will
benefit from price increases which began toward the latter part of
the second quarter and are continuing into the third quarter but
not to the extent anticipated due to competitive pressures.  Our
strategy is to regain pricing power and maintain or grow market
share through an aggressive program to commercialize new higher
margin products addressing new and existing markets.

"We remain in prudent management mode and will continue to invest
in order to improve our competitive position, while carefully
managing all costs.  Paying down debt remains a top priority;
however, we will continue to assess opportunities to repurchase
the Company's common shares," concluded Mr. Yull.

The Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2010, showed
$552.1 million in total assets and $325.8 million in total
liabilities, resulting to $226.2 million in stockholders' equity.

IRVINE SENSORS: Reaches Deal to Sell Securities to Longview
-----------------------------------------------------------
Irvine Sensors Corp. and Longview Fund L.P. entered into an
Agreement, Consent and Waiver on April 9, 2010, pursuant to which
the Company agreed, subject to certain conditions, to issue to
Longview:

   i) subject to approval of the Company's stockholders, non-
      voting equity securities, with terms junior to the Company's
      Series B Convertible Preferred Stock, convertible into
      1,000,000 shares of the Company's Common Stock at a
      conversion price per converted share of Common Stock equal
      to $0.30, which was the last consolidated closing bid price
      of the Company's Common Stock prior to the execution of the
      Longview Agreement as determined in accordance with Nasdaq
      Marketplace Rules and

  ii) a two-year warrant with a cashless exercise provision to
      purchase 1,000,000 shares of the Company's Common Stock at
      any time after six months after the issuance date at an
      exercise price per share of $0.30, which was the last
      consolidated closing bid price of the Company's Common Stock
      prior to the execution of the Longview Agreement as
      determined in accordance with Nasdaq Marketplace Rules.

Because the Company was unable to arrange for a third-party
investor to purchase by July 15, 2010 the Company's Series A-1
Convertible Preferred Stock and Series A-2 Convertible Preferred
Stock beneficially owned by Longview, and because stockholder
approval was obtained on July 28, 2010, the Company issued the
Contingent Warrant and issued the Contingent Securities in the
form of an additional 10,000 shares of its Series C Convertible
Preferred Stock to Longview.

The Company also issued 800,000 shares of Common Stock to an
accredited institutional investor upon such investor's conversion
on July 23, 2010 of $102,600 of the stated value of the Series A-1
10% Cumulative Convertible Preferred Stock of the Company.  As
a result of the issuance of the Series C Stock and the Contingent
Warrant on August 2, 2010, the Company has issued more than
5% of its outstanding shares of Common Stock in unregistered
transactions in the aggregate since the last report that it filed
under Item 3.02 with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

KRONOS INT'L: Seeking Extension of May 2011 Loan Maturity Date
--------------------------------------------------------------
Kronos International, Inc., disclosed in its Form 10-Q regulatory
filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission that it has
commenced discussions with lenders regarding an extension of its
credit facility.

Kronos' revolving credit facility currently matures in May 2011.
The Company expects to have a new agreement of extension in place
prior to the maturity date.

At June 30, 2010, Kronos' consolidated debt was comprised of:

     -- EUR400 million principal amount of its 6.5% Senior Secured
        Notes ($493.3 million at June 30, 2010) due in 2013;

     -- EUR15 million ($18.6 million) under its revolving credit
        facility which matures in May 2011; and

     -- Approximately $7.3 million of other indebtedness.

The revolving credit facility requires Kronos to maintain minimum
levels of equity, requires the maintenance of certain financial
ratios, limits dividends and additional indebtedness and contains
other provisions and restrictive covenants customary in lending
transactions of this type.  The Company said it is in compliance
with all of its debt covenants at June 30, 2010.  The Company
believes it will be able to comply with the financial covenants
contained in its credit facility through the maturity of the
facility; however if future operating results differ materially
from its expectations it may be unable to maintain compliance.

                    About Kronos International

Kronos International, Inc., produces and markets TiO2 pigments in
Europe, and is a wholly owned subsidiary of Kronos Worldwide,
Inc., headquartered in Dallas, Texas.

As of June 30, 2010, the Company had $937.1 million in total
assets against $181.1 million in total current liabilities and
$620.9 million in total non-current liabilities, resulting in
$135.1 million in stockholders' equity.

                           *     *     *

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on June 25, 2010,
Moody's Investors Service raised Kronos International's Corporate
Family Rating to B3 from Caa1 and the rating on the EUR400 million
senior secured notes due 2013 to Caa1 from Caa2.  The upgrade
reflects KII's better operating results, improved titanium dioxide
market conditions and the expectation that credit metrics will
improve further in 2010.  The outlook is stable.

Moody's also said KII's liquidity is supported by its positive
cash flow from operations, cash balances and unused availability
under its EUR80 million revolving credit, which matures in less
than one year (May 2011).  Total use of the revolver was restored
to the company in May 2010 after complying with the amended
covenants in the first quarter 2010.  Availability had been
limited to EUR51 million since the facility was amended in
September 2009 to accommodate the shortfall in EBITDA generation
during the global economic downturn, which would have led to a
violation of the leverage covenant.  The improved profitability in
2010 could allow the company to meet the original financial
covenants and revert the credit facility to its pre-amendment
terms and conditions.

The TCR on April 19, 2010, reported that Fitch Ratings has
upgraded Kronos' Issuer Default Rating to 'B-' from 'CCC' and its
securities ratings: Senior secured revolving credit facility to
'BB-/RR1' from 'B+/RR1'; Senior secured notes to 'B-/RR4' from
'CCC/RR4'.  The Rating Outlook has been revised to Stable from
Negative.

Fitch said the ratings reflect high financial leverage at Kronos
International as well as Kronos Worldwide's solid market position
in the TiO2 industry, the fifth largest globally with 10% of
global capacity.  The ratings also reflect the early stages of a
recovery in the TiO2 industry and Fitch's expectations that
earnings over the next 24 months will remain below the average
over the period from 2005 through 2008.


KRONOS INT'L: Swings to $9-Mil. Net Income for Q2 2010
------------------------------------------------------
Kronos International, Inc., reported net income for the second
quarter of 2010 of $9.0 million compared with a net loss of $26.1
million in the second quarter of 2009.  For the first six months
of 2010, Kronos International reported net income of $49.3 million
compared with a net loss of $50.2 million.

Comparability of the Company's results was impacted by higher
income from operations in 2010 periods due principally from higher
sales and production volumes, as well as a $35.2 million non-cash
deferred income tax benefit recognized in the first quarter of
2010.

Net sales of $256.6 million in the second quarter of 2010 were
$59.9 million, or 30%, higher than the second quarter of 2009.
Net sales of $485.4 million for the first six months of 2010 were
$117.1 million, or 32%, higher than the first six months of 2009.

As of June 30, 2010, the Company had $937.1 million in total
assets against $181.1 million in total current liabilities and
$620.9 million in total non-current liabilities, resulting in
$135.1 million in stockholders' equity.

LEAP WIRELESS: Posts $19.3 Million Net Loss for June 30 Quarter
---------------------------------------------------------------
Leap Wireless International Inc. reported a net loss of $19.3
million for the quarter ended June 30, 2010, compared to a net
loss of $61.2 million for the comparable period of the prior year.
The decline in net loss resulted in a year-over-year net loss per
share improvement of $0.65.

The Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2010, showed $5.2 billion
in total assets and $3.5 billion in total liabilities, for
$1.6 billion in total stockholders' equity.

Service revenues for the second quarter increased 10.2% over the
prior year quarter to $597.0 million.  Operating income for the
second quarter of 2010 was $49.2 million, compared to operating
income of $26.3 million for the second quarter of 2009, an
increase of $22.9 million, or approximately 87%.

"The Company delivered solid financial performance in the second
quarter, highlighted by an increase in adjusted OIBDA of nearly
25% over the second quarter of 2009 and 40% over the first quarter
of 2010, which resulted in an important milestone for the business
in generating positive free cash flow," said Doug Hutcheson,
Leap's president and chief executive officer.  "We expected second
quarter net customer additions to be seasonally soft, and while
customer activity in the quarter was even softer than expected, we
believe it will strengthen in coming quarters as a result of the
actions we are taking.

Mr. Hutcheson added that overall business activity for 2010 comes
in three phases.  During the first half of the year, the Company
was preparing for a significant transformation of our business.
In the third quarter, the Company is beginning the implementation
phase of this transformation with various initiatives, including
new, simpler voice, Smartphone and broadband service plans, as
well as an enhanced touchscreen, Smartphone and feature phone
line-up.  The Company expects to begin to realize the benefits of
these changes in the fourth quarter and beyond as it enters the
traditionally strong selling season.

"We are pleased with the Company's financial performance in the
second quarter, including the increased contributions from our
Auction 66 markets and our mobile broadband service," said Walter
Berger, Leap's executive vice president and chief financial
officer.

LEAP WIRELESS: Unit Inks Service Agreement With Sprint Spectrum
---------------------------------------------------------------
Cricket Communications Inc., the wholly-owned operating subsidiary
of Leap Wireless International Inc., entered into a private label
services agreement with Sprint Spectrum L.P.  Pursuant to the
agreement, Cricket is entitled to purchase and resell prepaid
wireless services from Sprint.

The initial term of the Services Agreement is until December 31,
2015, and the agreement renews for successive one-year periods
unless either party provides 180-day advance notice to the other.
Under the agreement, Cricket will pay Sprint a specified amount
per month for each subscriber activated on Sprint's network,
subject to periodic market-based adjustments.  Cricket has agreed
to provide Sprint with a minimum of $300 million of aggregate
revenues over the initial five-year term of the agreement, with a
minimum of $25 million of revenue to be provided in 2011, a
minimum of $75 million of revenue to be provided in each of 2012,
2013 and 2014, and a minimum of $50 million of revenue to be
provided in 2015.  Any revenues provided by Cricket in a given
year above the minimum revenue commitment for that particular year
will be credited to the next succeeding year.

In the event Leap is involved in a change-of-control transaction
with another facilities-based wireless carrier with annual
revenues of at least $500 million in the fiscal year preceding the
date of the change of control agreement, either Sprint or Cricket
may terminate the agreement within 60 days following the closing
of such a transaction.  In connection with any such termination,
Cricket would be required to pay to Sprint a specified percentage
of the remaining aggregate minimum revenue commitment, with the
percentage to be paid depending on the year in which the change of
control agreement was entered into, beginning at 40% for any such
agreement entered into in or before 2011, 30% for any such
agreement entered into in 2012, 20% for any such agreement entered
into in 2013 and 10% for any such agreement entered into in 2014
or 2015.

In the event that Leap is involved in a change-of-control
transaction with MetroPCS Communications, Inc. during the term of
the Services Agreement, then the agreement would continue in full
force and effect, subject to certain revisions, including, without
limitation, an increase to the total minimum revenue commitment to
$350 million, taking into account any revenue contributed by
Cricket prior to the date thereof.

In the event Sprint is involved in a change-of-control
transaction, the agreement would bind Sprint's successor-in-
interest.

LEHMAN BROTHERS: Asks for OK of Transfer Agreement With Citibank
----------------------------------------------------------------
Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. and the SIPA trustee of Lehman
Brothers Inc. seek court approval to approve a transfer agreement
with Citibank N.A.

The agreement authorizes the transfer of the residual interests
of LBHI, LBI and another subsidiary, Lehman Pass Through
Securities Inc., in real estate mortgage investment conduits.
The Lehman units currently hold about 1,600 residual interests in
REMICs.

Under the deal, LBHI agreed to pay $24 million to Citibank in
exchange for the bank's acquisition of the residual interests.
As the new owner of the assets, Citibank will assume the
obligation to pay the taxes on those assets accruing on or after
March 31, 2010, the effective date for the agreement.

A copy of the Transfer Agreement is available without charge
at http://bankrupt.com/misc/LBHI_CitiTransferAgreement.pdf

Richard Krasnow, Esq., at Weil Gotshal & Manges LLP, in New York,
says the acquisition by Citibank of those assets will relieve the
Lehman units of $119 million to $283 million in income tax, which
the companies are expected to incur within four years.

In connection with the deal, LBHI and the trustee also ask for
court approval to enter into an inter-estate agreement, dated
July 27, 2010, under which they agreed to a mechanism for sharing
responsibility between the company and LBI for the $24 million
payment.  About 70% of the $24 million will be allocated to LBI
with the remaining 30% divided between LBHI and LPTSI.

A copy of the Inter-Estate Agreement is available without charge
at http://bankrupt.com/misc/LBHI_CitiInterEstateAgreement.pdf

The Court will consider approval of the request at the August 18,
2010 hearing.  Deadline for filing objections is August 11, 2010.

LEHMAN BROTHERS: Intends to Acquire Loans Through LBREP JV
----------------------------------------------------------
Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. seeks a court ruling authorizing an
affiliate to purchase loans through a joint venture with
Luxembourg-based LBREP III Europe S.a.r.l. SICAR.

The loans comprise the senior debt in a residential project known
as "Sun and Moon," in which LBREP and LBHI own stake.  The
project consists of 634 residential units located in Marseille,
France.

The buyout is part of a deal that LBHI hammered out with LBREP to
get additional funding for the Sun and Moon project.  The deal
calls for the acquisition of the loans by Lehman Commercial Paper
Inc. from Lehman Brothers Bankhaus AG, which will then be
assigned to the joint venture to be owned 37.5% by LCPI and 62.5%
by LBREP.

The additional funding for the residential project will be in the
form of debt from LCPI and equity investment from LBHI and LBREP.
As much as EUR102.4 million is still needed to complete the
project, Alfredo Perez, Esq., at Weil Gotshal & Manges LLP, in
Houston, Texas, tells the Court.

Mr. Perez says the buyout would allow LCPI and LBHI to increase
their investments in the Sun and Moon project while also sharing
with LBREP in providing additional funding for the project.

"If LCPI purchased the [loans] alone, it would not have the
benefit of the additional funding from LBREP, and the Sun and
Moon project would not receive sufficient [funding] to meet its
current business plan," Mr. Perez says in court papers.

The Court will consider approval of the request at the August 18,
2010 hearing.  Deadline for filing objections is August 11, 2010.

LEHMAN BROTHERS: Wants to Amend Pact to Fund Heritage Project
-------------------------------------------------------------
Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. seeks court approval to amend what
it calls a participation agreement so that it could provide
financing for the Heritage Fields Project, a 3,723-acre
masterplan development in California owned by Heritage Fields El
Toro LLC.

The proposed amendment would allow LBHI to buy up to $32 million
of participation interest in a loan that El Toro LLC provided to
Heritage in 2007.  Under the current participation agreement with
El Toro, LBHI is only allowed to purchase up to $24.5 million.

The $32 million will be used to cover the costs of the Heritage
Fields project, which must be paid prior to court approval of
LBHI's settlement deal with Heritage, according to Alfredo Perez,
Esq., at Weil Gotshal & Manges LLP, in Houston, Texas.

LBHI earlier filed a motion to approve the settlement deal, under
which it will receive about $125 million from Heritage as payment
for assigning its debt interest in the project to State Street
Bank and Trust Company.  If the settlement is approved, the
participation interests will be repaid.

Mr. Perez says they chose to structure the funding of the
project's costs through the proposed buyout because it provides
LBHI and its creditors with the most security.

"As a participation in El Toro's loan, the additional
participation interests are secured by a first priority security
interest in the project," he says, adding that they will be paid
prior to substantially any other interest in the Heritage Fields
project.

LEVEL 3 COMMUNICATIONS: $39-Mil. of Debt Due to Mature in 2nd Half
------------------------------------------------------------------
Level 3 Communications Inc. filed its second quarter 2010 report
on Form 10-Q.

The Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2010, showed
$8.296 billion in total assets and $8.281 billion in total
liabilities, for $15.0 million in total stockholders' equity.

As of June 30, 2010, Level 3 had an aggregate of $6.3 billion of
long-term debt on a consolidated basis including current
maturities, premiums and discounts, capital leases and its
commercial mortgage, and $15 million of stockholder' equity.  Of
this long-term debt, approximately $39 million is due to mature in
the remaining six months of 2010, approximately $199 million is
due to mature in 2011 and approximately $298 million is due to
mature in 2012, in each case excluding debt discounts, premiums
and fair value adjustments.

"If Level 3 were unable to refinance its debt or to raise
additional capital on acceptable terms, Level 3's ability to
operate its business would be impaired," the Company said in the
document submitted to the Securities and Exchange Commission.

As it had earlier disclosed in a press release, Level 3 incurred a
net loss of $169.0 million on $908.0 million of total revenues for
the three months ended June 30, 2010, compared with a net loss of
$134.0 on $942.0 million of total revenue during the same period a
year ago.

The Company has also been focused on improving its liquidity,
financial condition, and extending the maturity dates of certain
debt.  Among other tings, in the second quarter of 2010, the
Company redeemed all of the outstanding $172 million aggregate
principal amount of its 10% Convertible Senior Notes due 2011 for
a price equal to $1,016.70 per $1,000 principal amount of the
notes plus accrued and unpaid interest up to, but not including
the redemption date.  The Company used cash on hand to fund the
redemption of these notes, and recognized a loss on extinguishment
of approximately $4 million.

The Company said it will continue to look for opportunities to
improve its financial position and focus its resources on growing
revenue and managing costs for the communications business.

LOUIS PEARLMAN: Fla. Judge Allows Trustee to Hire Auctioneer
------------------------------------------------------------
Jacqueline Palank at Dow Jones Daily Bankruptcy Review reports
that Bankruptcy Judge Arthur B. Briskman in Orlando, Fla., on
Tuesday gave permission to Soneet R. Kapila -- the chapter 11
trustee appointed to oversee the liquidation of the bankruptcy
estates of pop music mogul Louis J. Pearlman and his Trans
Continental Records Inc. -- to hire an auctioneer.

According to Ms. Palank, Mr. Kapila is seeking an auctioneer's
help because much of the property "is of uncertain value" and
doesn't have a clear market in which to seek buyers.

Mr. Kapila plans to sell such personal property as dozens of CDs,
DVDs, and other recordings of the boy bands Mr. Pearlman created
-- the Backstreet Boys, 'N Sync, O-Town and LFO -- as well as
numerous other assets.

The report says Judge Briskman approved the request after the
Backstreet Boys withdrew their objection to the sale.  According
to the report, the band was originally miffed that dozens of
photographs included under its name actually featured the five
guys of rival boy band 'N Sync.

An auction date doesn't yet appear to have been set, the report
adds.

                       About Louis Pearlman

Louis J. Pearlman started Trans Continental Records which managed
boy bands such as the Backstreet Boys, 'N Sync, O-Town, Lyte Funky
Ones (LFO), Take 5, Natural and US5.  Other artists on the Trans
Continental's label included Aaron Carter, Jordan Knight, C Note,
and Smilez & Southstar.

On March 1, 2007, creditors Tatonka Capital Corporation, First
National Bank & Trust Co. of Williston, and American Bank of St.
Paul, and Integra Bank filed an involuntary chapter 11 petition
against Mr. Pearlman and his company, Trans Continental Airlines,
Inc. (Bankr. M.D. Fla. Case Nos. 07-00761 and 07-00762).  The
creditors disclosed an aggregate of more than $40 million in
claims.

Fletcher Peacock, Esq., is Mr. Pearlman's legal counsel.

MEXICANA AIRLINE: Halt in Flights Could Adversely Affect ASUR
-------------------------------------------------------------
Grupo Aeroportuario del Sureste, S.A.B. de C.V. disclosed that
Mexicana (not including Mexicana Click, formerly known as Aerovias
Caribe, or Mexicana Link, which are reportedly not under financial
distress and were not part of the bankruptcy filing) accounted for
Ps.62.2 million in accounts receivable at June 30, 2010 and
accounted for 4.1% of ASUR's revenues for the six months ended
June 30, 2010 and 4.3% of ASUR's revenues for the year ended
December 31, 2009, primarily from domestic passengers.

ASUR said, "Although ASUR anticipates that a significant portion
of Mexicana's traffic would migrate to other carriers if its
operations were curtailed, ASUR does not have contracts with any
airlines, including Mexicana, that obligate them to continue
providing service to our airports, and we can offer no assurance
that competing airlines would seek to increase their flight
schedules if Mexicana reduced its use of our airports.  If
Mexicana were to cease operations as a result of its bankruptcy
filing, ASUR's business and results of operations could be
adversely affected if traffic does not migrate to our other
airline customers."

                            About ASUR

Grupo Aeroportuario del Sureste, S.A.B. de C.V. (ASUR) is a
Mexican airport operator with concessions to operate, maintain and
develop the airports of Cancun, Merida, Cozumel, Villahermosa,
Oaxaca, Veracruz, Huatulco, Tapachula and Minatitlan in the
southeast of Mexico.  The Company is listed both on the Mexican
Bolsa, where it trades under the symbol ASUR, and on the NYSE in
the U.S., where it trades under the symbol ASR. One ADS represents

primarily related to the Company's investment in a convertible
note, and losses on the retirement of long-term debt of $58
million.

The Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2010, showed $19.9 billion
in total assets, $1.1 billion in total current liabilities,
$2.6 billion in deferred income taxes, $13.0 billion in long-term
debt, $243.2 million in other long-term obligations, for a
stockholder's equity of $2.8 billion.

Net revenue for the second quarter of 2010 was $1.54 billion.
Excluding reimbursed costs revenue mainly related to the Company's
management of CityCenter, the Company earned net revenue of $1.45
billion, a decrease of 2% from the same period in 2009.
Reimbursed costs revenue represents reimbursement of payroll and
other costs incurred by the Company in connection with the
provision of management services.

Total casino revenue decreased 6% compared to the prior year
quarter, with slots revenue down approximately 3%.  The Company's
table games volume, excluding baccarat, decreased 7% in the
quarter, but baccarat volume was up 10% compared to the prior year
quarter.  The overall table games hold percentage was lower in the
2010 second quarter compared to the prior year quarter and near
the low end of the Company's normal 18% to 22% range.  Lower than
normal table games hold percentage at the Company's Las Vegas
Strip resorts resulted in an impact to Adjusted EBITDA of
approximately $20 million.  Bellagio, The Mirage, and Mandalay Bay
were affected by the lower table games hold, partially offset by
MGM Grand which benefited from a higher than normal table games
hold percentage.  These factors led to an overall decrease in
table games revenue of 11% for the quarter.

"M life, our new customer loyalty program, was introduced two
weeks ago at Beau Rivage and the response has been outstanding,"
said Mr. Murren.  "We are very excited about the opportunity M
life presents to our Company, especially when coupled with the
superior assets in our portfolio."

"We maintained strong occupancy and improved our convention mix
over the prior year second quarter, leading to sequential
improvement in Las Vegas Strip REVPAR," said Mr. Murren. "We
expect continued progress in our business trends driven by strong
forward convention bookings."

Operating loss for the second quarter of 2010 was $1.0 billion
compared to operating income of $131 million in the 2009 quarter.
Excluding the impairment charges related to CityCenter, the
Company would have earned operating income of $102 million in the
second quarter of 2010.

The Company reported Adjusted Property EBITDA attributable to
wholly-owned operations of $305 million in the 2010 quarter, a
decrease of 16% year-over-year.  Adjusted Property EBITDA, which
includes the impact from unconsolidated affiliates, was $279
million in the 2010 quarter and was negatively impacted by $56
million in losses from CityCenter results.  The Company reported
Adjusted EBITDA, which includes corporate expense, of $243 million
in the 2010 quarter.

                        Financial Position

At June 30, 2010, the Company had approximately $13.3 billion of
indebtedness, including $3.2 billion of borrowings outstanding
under its senior credit facility.  The Company has approximately
$1.5 billion in available borrowing capacity under its revolver
and approximately $570 million of invested cash available for
future liquidity needs.  The Company repurchased $211 million
principal amount of senior notes with near term maturities during
the second quarter, resulting in cash interest savings of
approximately $5 million.

"We have made tremendous progress in addressing our balance sheet
and liquidity needs by amending and negotiating the extension of
our credit facility, accessing the secured bond market, and in
April successfully issuing $1.15 billion in convertible notes.
These transactions have provided over $2 billion of available
liquidity," said Dan D'Arrigo, MGM Resorts International Executive
Vice President and CFO.  "Additionally, our Macau bank refinancing
was an overwhelming success. MGM Macau now has a solid long-term
capital structure and our focus is on advancing our potential IPO
transaction."

Fitch Ratings in March 2010, revised Navistar International's and

"negative" and affirmed the companies' long-term Issuer Default

in the financial profile of NFC following the signing of an
operating agreement with GE Capital and by NAV's financial
performance in the past year.  Historically, Fitch had concerns
with NFC's funding, capitalization, and asset quality performance,
but they have been eliminated or reduced with the new agreement
with GECC.


NEXCEN BRANDS: Closes Sale of Franchise Biz to Levine Leichtman
---------------------------------------------------------------
NexCen Brands Inc. closed the sale of its franchise businesses to
Global Franchise Group, LLC an affiliate of Levine Leichtman
Capital Partners.  In connection with the closing of the sale
transaction, BTMU Capital Corporation was paid all amounts owing
to BTMUCC pursuant to the terms of an Accord and Satisfaction
Agreement with BTMUCC that was signed on May 13, 2010.

The closing took place following shareholder approval of the
transaction at a Special Meeting of Stockholders held on July 29,
2010.  The proposal was approved, with approximately 65% of the
shares outstanding and 90% of shares voted, in favor of the
transaction.

At the Special Meeting, the Company's shareholders also approved
the additional proposals outlined in the Company's June 11, 2010
proxy statement, including adoption of a plan of liquidation for
NexCen and reduction of the number of authorized shares of the
Company's common stock.  Based upon the final voting results, the
required majority vote was received on all proposals.

David S. Oros, Chairman of Board of Directors of NexCen, stated,
"We are extremely pleased with the support of our shareholders for
the sale of the Company's assets and the plan of dissolution.  We
believe this is the path most likely to provide value to all of
our stakeholders.  We appreciate the hard work of our employees
and franchisees as well as the support of our shareholders
throughout this process."

With the sale of the franchise businesses completed, NexCen
expects that it will soon file a certificate of dissolution with
the Secretary of State of Delaware and will proceed with the
process of formally winding down the Company.  The Company's Board
of Directors will meet to consider the commencement of the
dissolution process.

As set forth in the June 11, 2010 proxy statement, NexCen
continues to estimate that upon the Company's dissolution, the
cash proceeds ultimately available for distribution to the holders
of NexCen common stock will be between $0.12 and $0.16 per share
of common stock; however, NexCen is unable to predict with
certainty the exact amount, nature and timing of any distributions
to its shareholders.

PETER BUCKLIN: Asks for Court Okay to Use Cash Collateral
---------------------------------------------------------
Peter M. Bucklin has asked for authorization from the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the District of Oregon to use the cash
collateral securing their obligation to their prepetition lenders.

The Debtor and the Lenders -- Premier West Bank, Intervest-
Mortgage Investment Company, and Cascade Acceptance Corp. -- are
parties to various loan agreements, security agreements, financing
statements, deeds of trust, and other documents, and all
amendments thereto, pursuant to which the Lenders assert they hold
security interests and liens in various items and parcels of real
and personal property of the Debtor.

The approximate balances owed by the Debtor to the Lenders as of
the Petition Date regarding the Commercial Properties are:

1. Eagle Point:           Premier West - $3,400,000

2. Los Banos:                Intervest - $8,300,000
                               Cascade - $2,200,000

3. Berryessa:             Premier West - $2,400,000
                               Cascade - $365,000

4. Morning Dove:     J.P. Morgan Chase - $212,000
                          Premier West - $193,000

5. Hwy 62:           J.P. Morgan Chase - $238,000 (Duplex)
                          Premier West - $193,000 (Duplex and
                                         Trailer)

6. Broken Stone:     J.P. Morgan Chase - $220,000
                          Premier West - $267,000

Thomas W. Stilley, Esq., at Sussman Shank LLP, the attorney for
the Debtor, explains that the Debtor needs the money to fund its
Chapter 11 case, pay suppliers and other parties.  The Debtors
will use the collateral pursuant to a budget, a copy of which is
available for free at:
        http://bankrupt.com/misc/PETER_BUCKLIN_budget.pdf

To provide adequate protection for Debtor's use of the Lenders'
Cash Collateral, the Lenders' liens will continue in future Rents
from the Commercial Properties as the Rents are received on a
monthly basis and will replace the liens in the prior month's
Rents that are used in the Debtor's operations.  In addition,
Debtor will grant the Lenders' security interests in and liens
upon Debtor's personal property and certain real property in which
Lenders do not already have security interests and liens.  The
liens and security interests to be granted to the Lenders will be
granted for adequate protection purposes only, and will not
enhance or improve the Lenders' positions.

The Court has set a preliminary hearing for August 9, 2010, at
2:00 p.m., to consider the Debtor's motion for use of cash
collateral.

Eagle Point, Oregon-based Peter M. Bucklin -- dba PMB Development
Co. and The Peter M. and Joan B. Bucklin Revocable Trust -- filed
for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on July 23, 2010 (Bankr. D.
Ore. Case No. 10-64467).  Thomas W. Stilley, Esq., who has an

at $10,000,001 to $50,000,000.


PHH CORPORATION: Fitch Assigns 'BB+' Rating on $250 Mil. Notes
--------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings expects to assign a rating of 'BB+' to PHH
Corporation's $250 million senior unsecured notes issuance due in
2016.  Proceeds from the issuance will be primarily used to repay
a portion of outstanding borrowings under PHH's revolving credit
facility.

Fitch currently rates PHH:

  -- Long-term Issuer Default Rating 'BB+;
  -- Senior unsecured 'BB+';
  -- Short-term IDR 'B';
  -- Commercial paper 'B'.

The Rating Outlook is Negative.

The current ratings reflect PHH's improved liquidity, given the
addition of conduit capacity within the fleet leasing segment and
warehouse capacity extension within the mortgage segment, positive
operating performance due to improved margins in both segments,
and adequate capitalization for the current ratings.  Ratings also
take into account the short-term and predominantly secured nature
of the funding profile and the inherent volatility in the
mortgage-servicing rights asset which could negatively impact
earnings and capital.

The Negative Rating Outlook reflects the uncertainty surrounding
the new legislative reforms that could affect the company's
mortgage business, expected volatility in the mortgage market
which could have a negative impact on the company's natural hedge
policy, and the risk of higher than expected losses in the
reinsurance business and repurchase activity if economic
conditions worsen.

PHH currently operates in two businesses: mortgage operations and
fleet management services.  On June 30, 2010, PHH reported
$8.9 billion in assets.

SECURITY BENEFIT: Guggenheim Deal Cues Fitch to Withdraw Ratings
----------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has withdrawn the ratings of Security Benefit Life
Insurance Company and its affiliate, First Security Benefit Life
Insurance and Annuity Company of New York.

The withdrawal follows the close of the companies' acquisition by
Guggenheim Partners, LLC, which was announced on August 2.  While
Fitch believes the acquisition is a positive from a credit
perspective, SBLIC and FSBLIANY do not participate in the rating
process other than via their public disclosures.  Based on Fitch's
criteria for assigning ratings to insurance companies, Fitch has
concluded that information currently available to the agency is
insufficient to maintain these ratings.

Fitch has withdrawn these ratings, which were on Rating Watch
Positive prior to the withdrawal:

Security Benefit Life Insurance Company

  -- Insurer Financial Strength 'CCC';
  -- Short-term IFS 'C'.

First Security Benefit Life Insurance and Annuity Company of New
York

  -- IFS 'CCC'.


SIGMA INDUSTRIES: Gets Creditors' Support for Restructuring
-----------------------------------------------------------
Sigma Industries Inc. said that, in accordance with the Bankruptcy
and Insolvency Act, the restructuring proposals filed on July 16,
2010 by Sigma and its subsidiaries Rene Composite Materials Ltd.
and Transcam Composites Inc. have received the unanimous approval
of its creditors and were also ratified by the Superior Court of
Qu‚bec, which, at the same time, gave the company permission to
reorganize, in the sense accorded to this term in Article 191 of
the Canada Business Corporations Act.

Subject to the regulatory or TSX Venture Exchange approval, the
authorized reorganization would essentially comprise: i)
consolidation of Sigma capital stock already issued and
outstanding, at a ratio of 4 to 1, such that the number of Sigma
common shares in circulation be reduced from 42,899,095 to
approximately 10,724,774; ii) cancellation of all options and
stock purchase warrants outstanding; iii) issuing convertible
debentures to a maximum capital amount of $1,000,000, convertible
at any time within 5 years of issue of the first debentures, in
whole or in part, in Sigma units after consolidation, each unit
consisting of a common share at $0.10 and a warrant permitting the
purchase of one common share of Sigma at $0.10 per share, the
warrants to be exercised no later than the maturity date of the
debentures.

The private investment will be undertaken by Consolidated
Composites Industries Inc., a corporation related to Sigma, whose
senior executives, namely Denis Bertrand, Jean-Fran‡ois Dore and
Bruno Doyon, are directors and shareholders.

"We would like to sincerely thank our suppliers, employees and
financial partners for the unflagging support they have given to
Sigma during these difficult times. This agreement will allow
Sigma and its subsidiaries look to the future with renewed

ST JOHN KNITS: S&P Downgrades Corporate Credit Rating to 'B'
------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its corporate credit
rating on privately owned, Irvine, Calif.-based St. John Knits
International Inc. to 'B' from 'B+' and removed all its ratings
from CreditWatch, where they were placed with negative
implications on Nov. 13, 2009.  The rating outlook is stable.

S&P also withdrew the senior secured debt rating on the company's
term loan as the company replaced it with a new asset-based
revolving credit facility and term loan facility that was not
rated.

The CreditWatch listing had reflected St. John Knits' weakened
credit metrics and S&P's belief that the company might find it
difficult to achieve sufficient improvement that would result in
credit metrics returning to levels that would support the 'B+'
rating.  In addition, at the time of the CreditWatch placement,
the company had not refinanced its credit facility which matured
in early fiscal 2010.

Immediately following the downgrade, S&P is withdrawing its
corporate credit rating on the company, at the issuer's request.

The downgrade reflects S&P's opinion that while operating
performance has stabilized at the current level and profitability
should show some further improvement, S&P estimate that credit
metrics will still be at or near the medians for the rating
category and will not improve to previous levels (which were
stronger than the rating) given the high interest rate on the new
term loan and the current weak economy.

In S&P's opinion, St. John Knits has taken steps to reduce its
relatively high fixed-cost structure resulting in better operating
margins and has broaden its product line to attract a wider
customer base.  However, S&P believes that the company's operating
performance is still vulnerable as the retail environment remains
fragile.  In addition, S&P believes customer concentration is a
risk, as three of the better department stores accounted for about
50% of annual revenues during fiscal 2009.

STRIKEFORCE TECHNOLOGIES: Appoints Phillip Blocker as CFO
---------------------------------------------------------
StrikeForce Technologies, Inc., appointed Phillip E. Blocker as
its Chief Financial Officer on July 31, 2010.

According to the Company, Mr. Blocker worked for Robert Half
Management Resources since October 2004 as financial consultant
fulfilling $10MM - $100MM clients' interim CFO/Controller
requirements in manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, software, and
telecommunications.

He also worked for ASKL Enterprises, Inc. from April 2002 until
September 2004 as financial consultant fulfilling $5MM - $50MM
clients' interim CFO/Project Manager requirements in
manufacturing, retail and financial services.

He obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in June 1979 from Queens
College of the City University of New York, and is a certified
public accountant.

In its March 2010 quarterly report filed on Form 10-Q with the
Securities and Exchange Commission, the Company noted that it had
an accumulated deficit of $20.717 million and a working capital
deficiency of $7.657 million at March 31, 2010 and had a net loss
and cash used in operations of $557,493 and $124,973 for the three
months ended March 31, 2010, respectively.

The Company said it is attempting to generate sufficient revenues
and improve gross margins by a revised sales strategy that was
implemented in the second quarter of 2009.  Management also has
raised funds through convertible debt instruments and the sale of
equity to alleviate the working capital deficiency.  The Company
is seeking to locate the additional funding necessary to continue
to expand and enhance its growth; however, there can be no
assurance that it will be able to increase revenues or raise
additional capital.  The Company said it is in negotiations with
other investors, but the success of such negotiations cannot be
assured.

"In the third quarter of 2009, we executed contracts with two
international clients for our ProtectID(R) and GuardedID(R)
products, respectively. We believe these contracts will provide a
continual steady increase to our revenues. Until we increase our
customer base and realize the increased revenues from the recently
signed contracts, we are assuming that we will continue as a going
concern," the Company said.

Management expects cash flows from operating activities to improve
by the third quarter of 2010, primarily as a result of certain
contracts, however no assurance can be given that such contracts
will materialize in revenue sufficient to meet operating expenses
and fund future operations.

TENET HEALTHCARE: Posts $35 Million Net Income for June 30 Quarter
------------------------------------------------------------------
Tenet Healthcare Corporation filed its quarterly report on Form
10-Q, showing net income of $35.0 million on $2.3 billion of net
operating revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2010,
compared with a net loss of $14.0 million net loss on $2.2 billion
net operating revenues for the same period a year ago.

The Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2010, showed $7.8 billion
in total assets and $7.8 billion in total liabilities, resulting
in $826.0 million in total stockholders' equity.

Second quarter 2010 performance was driven by solid revenue growth
and incremental cost efficiencies which more than offset the
impact from soft volumes.  Admissions and outpatient visits
declined by 2.0 percent and 0.8 percent, respectively. Adjusted
admissions declined by 0.6 percent.  Commercial managed care
admissions and outpatient visits declined by 7.2 percent and 5.4
percent, respectively.  Higher commercial acuity, increased unit
revenues, and improved commercial payer mix produced growth in
commercial managed care revenues of 2.0 percent.  This growth in
commercial revenues contributed to an aggregate increase in net
operating revenues of $74 million, or 3.3 percent.  This increase
in revenues was net of unfavorable adjustments of $28 million for
the estimated impact on our Medicare disproportionate share
hospital payments as a result of estimated lower Supplemental
Security Income percentages at certain of our hospitals and the
portion of bad debt that will not be reimbursed by Medicare.

Total controllable operating expense increased by $46 million, or
2.5 percent.  This increase included a 2.1 percent increase in
salaries, wages and benefits, primarily the result of salary and
wage increases awarded to our broad employee population on October
1, 2009.  Supplies expense was unchanged and other operating
expense increased by 5.5 percent.

Bad debt expense increased by $6 million, or 3.6 percent. There
was no change in the ratio of bad debt expense to net operating
revenues which remained at 7.5 percent.  Items that contributed to
the increase in bad debt expense included increases of 1.5 percent
and 2.4 percent in uninsured admissions and outpatient visits,
respectively, and a 130 basis point decline in the self-pay
collection rate to 29.5 percent.  These adverse factors were
partially offset by a $28 million favorable adjustment for
Medicare bad debts that will be claimed on the Company's cost
reports. The impact of providing uncompensated care, which
includes charity as well as

uninsured patients, was mitigated by a decline in charity volumes.
This mitigating effect is evident in our estimated costs of
providing care to charity and self-pay patients for the second
quarters of 2010 and 2009, which were $126 million and $121
million, respectively.

Adjusted net cash provided by operating activities from continuing
operations was $198 million and adjusted free cash flow from
continuing operations was $121 million, reflecting capital
expenditures of $77 million.  Cash and cash equivalents were $711
million at June 30, 2010, an increase of $122 million from March
31, 2010.  In 2009's second quarter, adjusted net cash provided
by operating activities was $202 million.  Net cash provided by
operating activities was $191 million in the second quarter of
2010 compared to $170 million in the second quarter of 2009.

                      About Tenet Healthcare

Dallas, Texas-based Tenet Healthcare Corporation (NYSE: THC) --
http://www.tenethealth.com/-- is a health care services company
whose subsidiaries and affiliates own and operate acute care
hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers and diagnostic imaging
centers.

                          *     *     *

As reported by the TCR on Aug. 5, 2010, Moody's Investors Service
affirmed its "B2" corporate family rating for Tenet.  The rating
reflects Moody's expectation that the Company will likely see
positive free cash flow for the full year ending December 31,
2010, as operating results continue to improve and litigation
settlement payments end in the third quarter.  However, the
ratings also consider the significant headwinds facing the
company, and the sector as a whole, with respect to increasing bad
debt expense, weak volume trends and changes in mix as commercial
volumes decline.

S&P's corporate credit rating on Tenet is 'B' and remains
unchanged.  The ratings agency noted that while the Company has
experience recent successes to date of a multiyear turnaround
effort, the Company has a still-weak business risk profile and
high financial leverage.


TEXAS RANGERS: Greenberg-Ryan Team's $590-Mil. Bid Wins
-------------------------------------------------------
As widely reported, the group led by Nolan Ryan, the Texas
Rangers' team president, and Charles Greenberg, a lawyer who owns
two minor-league teams, won the bidding for the club's baseball
team.  The Ryan group outbid Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas
Mavericks basketball team at the August 4 auction.

According to Bloomberg, the Bankruptcy Court has approved the
results of the auction.

The New York Times' Richard Sandomir reports that the auction,
slated for Aug. 4, took nearly 16 hours, concluding early morning
on Thursday.

According to the NY Times, the Greenberg-Ryan team will acquire
the Rangers for $590 million, which consists of $385 million in
cash and assumption of $208 million in liabilities, subject to $3
million in miscellaneous deductions.

The Greenberg-Ryan tandem beat a partnership formed within the
past week by Mark Cuban, the outspoken owner of the Dallas
Mavericks, and Jim Crane, a Houston investor who made a losing
play for the Astros in 2008.  According to Bloomberg News, Mr.
Cuban and his partner, Houston businessman Jim Crane, made several
bids for the team during the auction, which ended about 12:45 a.m.
Fort Worth time.  Mr. Cuban's final bid, Bloomberg relates, was
$390 million, which adjusted downward to $373.2 million, mostly to
account for a breakup fee that would have been paid to the
Greenberg-Ryan group.

"It's a relief just to know that we got it done," the NY Times
quotes Mr. Ryan as saying.  Regarding Mr. Cuban and Mr. Crane, he
added: "They did their due diligence, so I knew they were serious
about it."

According to the NY Times, Mr. Cuban said afterward: "We set the
limit at where we would go and we hit the limit."

THERMADYNE HOLDINGS: Moody's Gives Pos. Outlook; Keeps B3 Rating
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has changed the ratings outlook of
Thermadyne Holdings Corporation to positive from negative.  At the
same time, Moody's affirmed the B3 corporate family rating and
Caa1 rating on the $172 million senior subordinated notes due
2014.

The change in ratings outlook to positive follows THMD's
retirement of its second lien term loan, representing roughly 10%
of its balance sheet debt, as well as five quarters of sequential
revenue growth.  While revenues remain well below historical peak
levels, THMD's focused cost reductions over the past year have
supported a return to profitability levels and financial leverage
profile last seen in mid-2008 prior to the onset of the global
economic downturn.  The positive outlook incorporates Moody's
expectation that margins will remain strong over the near term as
THMD leverages its improved overhead cost structure and executes
its ongoing North American manufacturing upgrade.  Further, the
positive outlook incorporates Moody's expectation that cash flows
generated over the next twelve months will be employed in an
effort to reduce THMD's balance sheet debt levels.

A ratings upgrade will likely be dependent on THMD's ability to
maintain its cost containment strategy and current margin levels
over the next twelve months, a period when Moody's expects THMD's
revenue growth trends to stabilize.  Moody's could potentially
upgrade the ratings over the next twelve months if THMD were able
to demonstrate that EBITDA margins were sustainable above 15% and
that management remained committed, in Moody's view, to reducing
debt and maintaining an adequate liquidity profile.

These ratings were affirmed:

* B3 corporate family rating

* B3 probability of default rating; and

* $172 million senior subordinated notes due 2014 at Caa1 (LGD5,
  71% -- revised from LGD4, 69%).

The last rating action on THMD was the January 28, 2009, change in
rating outlook to negative from stable.

THMD, headquartered in Chesterfield, Missouri, is a global
manufacturer of cutting and welding equipment, including fuel gas
and plasma torches, arc accessories and related consumable parts.
Its products are used by a wide variety of manufacturing and
construction operations to cut, join and reinforce steel, aluminum
and other metals.  For the twelve months ending June 30, 2010,
sales totaled approximately $385 million.


TRIBUNE CO: Court Pushes Back Confirmation Hearing to October 4
---------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Kevin J. Carey of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District
of Delaware pushes back to October 4, 2010, the hearing to
consider confirmation of the Plan of Reorganization filed by
Tribune Company and its debtor affiliates.

The order came as a result of the Debtors' request to amend the
previously approved discovery and scheduling order for plan
confirmation entered by the Court on May 13, 2010.

Other Plan-related dates were also pushed back and set by the
Court:

  * The Voting Deadline is extended so that any properly
    executed and completed original Ballots or Master Ballots
    that are received by the Voting Agent on or prior to
    August 20, 2010, will be counted;

  * The Plan Confirmation Objection Deadline is extended to
    August 27, 2010, at 4:00 p.m.;

  * The deadline for the Voting Agent to file the results of its
    tabulation of votes to accept or reject the Plan is extended
    to August 27, 2010;

  * Responses to any objection to confirmation of the Plan will
    be filed on or before September 8, 2010, and the Debtors
    will also file with the Court their proposed findings of
    fact and conclusions of law and their memorandum in support
    of confirmation on or before that date;

  * The confirmation hearing will commence on October 4, 2010,
    at 10:00 a.m.;

  * The deadline for all parties-in-interest to further comply
    with the requirements of Rule 7026 of the Federal Rules of
    Bankruptcy Procedure and Rule 26(a)(2)(B) of the Federal
    Rule of Civil Procedure in respect to experts is extended to
    August 30, 2010;

  * Expert depositions may commence on or after September 7,
    2010; and

  * The Joint Pretrial Memorandum, along with any other
    documents required by Chambers Procedures for Judge Carey,
    will be filed with the Court by September 22, 2010.

The Debtors requested for the amendment of the discovery and
scheduling order in line with the recent completion and filing of
a report prepared by the Court-appointed examiner in their
bankruptcy cases.

The Debtors stated that, given the voluminous report filed by the
Examiner, the potential implications of the Examiner's
conclusions, and the delay in the parties' obtaining the
unredacted version of the Examiner report, the parties-in-interest
in the bankruptcy cases clearly need additional time to analyze
and meaningfully review the materials and incorporate them into a
written report reflecting their considered and expert opinions.

Therefore, the Debtors asked the Court to amend the Scheduling
Order so that the parties are required to comply with Rule 7026
and Rule 26(a)(2) of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure by
August 11, 2010, with respect to proposed expert witnesses and to
permit expert depositions to commence on or after August 13, 2010.

Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., as successor administrative agent under a
$1.6 billion Senior Unsecured Interim Loan Agreement dated as of
December 20, 2007, also lodged a similar extension request.
Specially, Wells Fargo asked the Court to (a) continue the
August 30, 2010 hearing on the confirmation of the Debtors'
proposed Plan of Reorganization for a period to not less than 90
days, (b) to continue to confirmation the August 9, 2010 hearing
on the Motion of the Debtors for an order authorizing the Debtors
to implement a Management Incentive Plan for 2010, and (c) for
corresponding adjustments to the pre-confirmation hearing
discovery and briefing schedule.

Wells Fargo asserted that the confirmation schedule is infeasible
and should be extended to allow the parties sufficient time to
properly and reasonably complete discovery and to assess the
myriad conclusions and findings in the just released Examiner's
Report.

In an order dated August 3, 2010, Judge Carey directed the
Examiner to promptly file with the Court his entire report without
the exhibits and transcripts.  In lieu of filing the Exhibits and
Transcripts with the Court Clerk, Judge Carey directed the
Examiner to file a notice informing parties-in-interest of the
posting of the Report, Exhibits and Transcripts with Epiq
Bankruptcy Solutions, LLC.

Judge Carey further ordered that:

  (a) the Examiner promptly provide Epiq with electronic access
      to the Report, the Exhibits and Transcripts;

  (b) Epiq electronically post the Report, the Exhibits and
      Transcripts to its web site dedicated to the Debtors'
      bankruptcy cases;

  (c) once Epiq has publicly posted the Report, the Exhibits and
      Transcripts, the Examiner will serve and file an
      appropriate notice informing parties-in-interest of the
      posting of the Reports, Exhibits and Transcripts with Epiq
      and instructions on how to access them.

The Judge also approved the Examiner's filing of the entire Report
on July 26, 2010, under seal.

Judge Carey held that any remaining claims of confidentiality as
to the Report, the Exhibits and the Transcripts, to the extent not
resolved, are overruled.

In a separate order, Judge Carey authorized the disclosure of the
Report, Exhibits and Transcripts to the parties and interviewees
pursuant to the terms of the Document Depository Order, as
requested by the Debtors.  All objections to the Motion are
overruled.

Judge Carey directed the Examiner to furnish access to each member
of the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors who has signed
the acknowledgment attached to the Document Depository Order, the
Interviewees, and the Office of the U.S. Trustee to the Report,
the Exhibits, and the transcripts on a Secure web site, provided
that before receiving access, counsel for each Party and
Interviewee furnishes to the Examiner's counsel the name and the
e-mail address of the individual on behalf of that Party and
Interviewee who will be entitled to access the Report, the
Exhibit, and the Transcripts.

The Court held that the transmittal of that communication to the
Examiner will constitute a reaffirmation that the Party,
Interviewee, and their respective counsel are subject to the
Document Depository Order or other order of the Court.

The Examiner and his advisors will be entitled to rely on the
authorization in connection with furnishing of access to the
Report, the Exhibits, and the Transcripts.

Prior to the entry of the Court's order and in accordance with the
Court's directives, the Debtors delivered to the Court a revised
form of order which provides the approval of the Motion.

                    Aurelius Supports Public
                      Disclosure of Report

Aurelius Capital Management, LP, manager of funds that are
beneficial owners of certain bonds issued by the Debtors, requests
that the Court not only authorizes the public filing of the
unredacted Report but also extends the voting and objection
deadlines by 30 days each.  Relatedly, Aurelius Capital requests
that the May 17, 2010, Record Date should be reset to August 2,
2010, as claims continue to be actively traded.

According to Aurelius, the entire Report should be made publicly
available because:

  (1) the Examiner has indicated that the redacted Report
      severely impairs the substance and quality of the Report,
      and renders it of little value to the reader;

  (2) it is at a severe informational disadvantage because
      several parties now possess full access to the Report
      based on the Court's order approving motion to authorize
      the disclosure of the Examiner's Report pursuant to the
      terms of the Document Depository Order;

  (3) the order approving the Work and Expense Plan and
      Modifying Examiner Order unequivocally states that the
      parties will not assert attorney-client privilege,
      attorney work product protection, or any other applicable
      privilege, protection or immunity with respect to the
      specific documents or information so disclosed to the
      Examiner or incorporated in the Report; and

  (4) both the Bankruptcy Code and public policy strongly
      militate in favor of public disclosure of the Report.

        Bank of America Resolves Confidentiality Issues

In a statement, Bank of America N.A. informs the Court that it has
resolved all issues with the Examiner regarding confidentiality.
While Bank of America disagrees with some of the Examiner's
conclusions regarding the circumstances surrounding the
prepetition leveraged buy-out, it agrees that the release of the
Report in its entirety is appropriate.

TRIBUNE CO: IRS Seeks Denial of Plan of Reorganization
------------------------------------------------------
The United States, on behalf of the Internal Revenue Service, the
Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Department of Revenue, the State of
Michigan, Department of Treasury, and the Missouri Department of
Revenue, ask the Court to deny confirmation of the Debtors'
Amended Joint Plan of Reorganization.

(A) Internal Revenue Service

The IRS objects to the provisions of the Plan regarding payment of
Priority Tax Claims because it fails to provide for full payment
of its Priority Tax Claim in monthly or quarterly distributions
within five years of the Petition Date.

The IRS asserts that as a priority claimant, it is entitled to
some degree of financial certitude that its claim will be paid
promptly and in full under the plan of reorganization.

The IRS further objects to the provisions of the Plan:

  (a) regarding payment of Priority Tax Claims because the Plan
      calls for any interest on deferred tax payments to
      compound annually, whereas applicable non-bankruptcy law,
      which governs the rate of interest, requires that the
      interest compound daily;

  (b) concerning releases because it would preemptively bar it,
      in violation of the Anti-Injunction and Declaratory
      Judgment Acts, from asserting valid claims against any
      Released Party, including but not limited to claim for
      excise taxes resulting from the leveraged buyout
      transaction;

  (c) to the extent they would bar it from assessing and
      collecting taxes resulting from any taxable transactions
      that occurred prior to the Petition Date but did not
      become assessable until after the Petition date;

  (d) to the extent it would deprive it of the right
      to interest on taxes entitled to administrative priority,
      as it has the right to receive underpayment interest on
      those taxes to the extent they are not timely paid; and

  (e) which fail to preserve its setoff and recoupment rights.

(B) Pennsylvania Revenue Department

The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Department of Revenue, asserts
that Amended Plan fails to acknowledge and provide for retention
of its prepetition liens.  The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania
asserts that although the Plan provides for interest on priority
tax claims, it is unclear whether its priority tax claims will be
receiving its statutory interest in accordance with Section 1129
of the Bankruptcy Code.

Moreover, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania maintains, the Plan
fails to provide that its tax debts are not discharged until paid
in full and that its tax liens remain in effect until the
underlying tax claims are paid in full.

(C) Michigan Department of Treasury

The State of Michigan, Department of Treasury, asserts that the
Debtors failed to file postpetition Michigan Business tax returns
for the 2008 and 2009 tax years.  It adds that the Debtors have
failed to remit the taxes, penalties and interest due for the
State for those tax years.

According to the State of Michigan, the Debtors' failure to remit
postpetition tax returns and pay postpetition tax liabilities due
the State constitute grounds for conversion or dismissal under
Section 1112(b)(4)(I) of the Bankruptcy Code.

(D) Missouri Department of Revenue

The Missouri Department of Revenue has filed a priority tax claims
totaling $4,175 for 2006 and 2007 corporate income tax liability.
The Missouri Department of Revenue avers that the terms of the
Plan lack specificity regarding payment of the Priority Tax
Claims, thus, would be extremely difficult to enforce in the event
of a default in plan payments.

TRW AUTOMOTIVE: Moody's Raises Corporate Family Rating to 'B1'
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service raised TRW Automotive, Inc.'s Corporate
Family and Probability of Default ratings to B1 from B2.  Moody's
also raised the ratings of the senior secured credit facilities to
Ba1 from Ba2, and raised the ratings for the guaranteed senior
unsecured notes to B2 from B3.  The Speculative Grade Liquidity
Rating also was affirmed at SGL-2.  The rating outlook is
positive.

The upgrade of TRW's Corporate Family Rating to B1 reflects the
company's strong operating performance in the first half of 2010
and the expectation that it will continue to benefit from recovery
in the automotive industry even though normal seasonal trends and
sluggishness in European markets will temper the pace of financial
improvement in the second half of the year.  The company's
performance in the first half of 2010 was supported by recovering
consumer demand in North America, automotive dealer inventory
restocking, and cost structure improvement actions taken in the
recent years.  For the first six months of 2010, the company's
reported operating profit of $622 million demonstrated a sharp
improvement from the $81 million loss recorded in the prior year,
and LTM EBIT/Interest (including Moody's standard adjustments) was
strong at about 3.2x.  Favorable business conditions have also
supported TRW's free cash flow generation in the first half of
2010 facilitating debt paydowns, with reported debt of about
$2.0 billion at July 2, 2010, down from over $2.4 billion at the
prior year end.

TRW's established position as an important supplier to the
automotive industry, with key technologies in safety products, and
a sound level of geographic, customer, and product diversification
is expected to support the company's competitive position over the
long-term.  As auto demand strengthens, the company should enjoy
favorable revenue trends and, in conjunction with a more lean cost
structure post restructuring actions taken over the last several
years, earnings and cash flow generation should show continued
strength.  Yet, industry seasonality, expected softness in Europe,
and the impact of recent currency fluctuations is expected to
soften the pace of this improvement in the second half of 2010.
Moody's expects European automobile registrations to weaken in the
second half of 2010 as the benefits of 2009 government sponsored
scrappage programs will not be repeated.  Although this will cause
some headwinds for TRW's operating results, Moody's believes that
the company will sustain operating metrics supportive of the B1
rating.

The positive outlook considers that even with the challenges of
recovering global economies TRW's credit metrics over the
intermediate term should continue to improve with growth in global
automotive production expected in 2011.  Moreover, Moody's
believes that TRW's improved cost structure should continue to
support the company's operating performance.

TRW's is expected to continue to operate with a good liquidity
profile over the next twelve months reflected by the rating of
SGL-2.  As of July 2, 2010 cash and cash equivalent balances were
$767 million.  The company's free cash flow over the next twelve
months is expected to be modestly positive inclusive of a normal
seasonal cash burn during the first quarter of 2011.  Improved
operating performance will also support higher levels of capital
expenditures.  TRW's liquidity position also is supported by a
$1.256 billion revolving credit facility.  As of July 2, 2010, the
revolving credit facility was unfunded with $55 million of issued
letters of credit.  The majority of the committed facility is
expected to remain available over the next twelve months providing
ample funding capacity for the company's needs.  The financial
covenant cushions over the near-term are expected to benefit from
the company's recent strong quarterly performance allowing TRW
full access to the revolver availability.  Alternative liquidity
arrangements will continue to be limited by the current bank liens
over substantially all of the company's domestic assets and lien
baskets under the unsecured notes.

Ratings raised:

* Corporate Family Rating, to B1 from B2;

* Probability of Default Rating, to B1 from B2;

* $1.256 billion combined senior secured domestic and global
  revolving credit facilities, to Ba1 (LGD1, 7%) from Ba2 (LGD1,
  8%);

* $225 million senior secured term loan A2, to Ba1 (LGD1, 7%) from
  Ba2 (LGD1, 8%);

* $500 million senior unsecured notes due 2014, to B2 (LGD4 60%)
  from B3 (LGD4, 61%);

* EUR275 million senior unsecured notes due 2014, to B2 (LGD4 60%)
  from B3 (LGD4, 61%);

* $600 million senior unsecured notes due 2017, to B2 (LGD4 60%)
  from B3 (LGD4, 61%);

* $250 million senior unsecured notes due 2017, to B2 (LGD4 60%)
  from B3 (LGD4, 61%);

Ratings affirmed:

* Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating, at SGL-2

The $259 million of exchangeable notes are not rated by Moody's.

The last rating action was on March 4, 2010 when TRW's Corporate
Family Rating was raised to B2 and the rating outlook changed to
positive.

Future events that have the potential to improve TRW's ratings
include: further improvement in production levels in the
automotive markets and improved operating margins resulting from
new business wins or productivity improvements.  Consideration for
a higher ratings could arise if these factors were to lead to EBIT
margins approaching the high single digits, and future quarterly
EBIT/Interest coverage consistently above 2.3x while maintaining
adequate liquidity.

Consideration for downward outlook or rating migration would arise
if industry conditions were to deteriorate without sufficient
offsetting restructuring actions or savings by the company, or if
TRW is unable to maintain adequate liquidity levels to operate
through a prolonged industry downturn.

TRW Automotive, Inc., headquartered in Livonia, MI, is among the
world's largest and most diversified suppliers of automotive
systems, modules, and components to global vehicle manufacturers
and related aftermarket.  The company has four operating segments:
Chassis Systems, Occupant Safety Systems, Automotive Components,
and Electronics.  Its primary business lines encompass the design,
manufacture, and sale of active and passive safety related
products.  Revenues in 2009 were approximately $11.6 billion.


UAL CORPORATION: Settles Lawsuit Relating to Continental Merger
---------------------------------------------------------------
To recall, on May 2, 2010, UAL Corporation, Continental Airlines
Inc. and JT Merger Sub Inc. entered into an Agreement and Plan of
Merger, providing for a business combination of Continental and
UAL.

Following announcement of the Merger Agreement on May 3, 2010,
three class action lawsuits were filed against Continental,
members of Continental's board of directors and UAL in the Texas
District Court for Harris County.  The lawsuits purport to
represent a class of Continental stockholders opposed to the terms
of the Merger Agreement.  The lawsuits make virtually identical
allegations that the consideration to be received by Continental's
stockholders in the Merger is inadequate and that the members of
Continental's board of directors breached their fiduciary duties,
by among other things, approving the Merger at an inadequate price
under circumstances involving certain conflicts of interest.

The lawsuits also make virtually identical allegations that
Continental and UAL aided and abetted the Continental board of
directors in the breach of its fiduciary duties to Continental's
stockholders.  Each lawsuit seeks injunctive relief declaring that
the Merger Agreement was in breach of the Continental directors'
fiduciary duties, enjoining Continental and UAL from proceeding
with the Merger unless Continental implements procedures to obtain
the highest possible price for its stockholders, directing the
Continental board of directors to exercise its fiduciary duties in
the best interest of Continental's stockholders and rescinding the
Merger Agreement. All three lawsuits have been consolidated before
a single judge.

On July 30, 2010, plaintiffs in the Consolidated Action filed an
amended and consolidated petition.  On August 1, 2010, the parties
to the Consolidated Action reached an agreement in principle
regarding settlement of the Consolidated Action.  Under the
Settlement, the Consolidated Action will be dismissed with
prejudice on the merits and all defendants will be released from
any and all claims relating to, among other things, the Merger and
any disclosures made in connection therewith.  The Settlement is
subject to customary conditions, including consummation of the
Merger, completion of certain confirmatory discovery, class
certification, and final approval by the District Court.

In exchange for that release, UAL and Continental have provided
additional disclosures requested by plaintiffs in the Consolidated
Action related to, among other things, the negotiations between
Continental and UAL that resulted in the execution of the Merger
Agreement, the method by which the exchange ratio was arrived at,
the procedures used by UAL's and Continental's financial advisors
in performing their financial analyses and certain investment
banking fees paid to those advisors by UAL and Continental over
the past two years.

The Settlement will not affect any provision of the Merger
Agreement or the form or amount of the consideration to be
received by Continental stockholders in the Merger.

The defendants have denied and continue to deny any wrongdoing or
liability with respect to all claims, events, and transactions
complained of in the aforementioned litigations or that they have
engaged in any wrongdoing.  The defendants have entered into the
Settlement to eliminate the uncertainty, burden, risk, expense,
and distraction of further litigation.  The foregoing description
of the Settlement does not purport to be complete.

On June 29, 2010, several purported current and future purchasers
of airline tickets filed an antitrust lawsuit in the U.S. District
Court for the Northern District of California against Continental,
as well as UAL and United Air Lines, Inc., in connection with the
Merger.  The plaintiffs allege, among other things, that
Continental and UAL are substantial competitors on routes operated
in the United States and that, if the Merger is consummated, they
will experience higher ticket prices, decreased aircraft capacity,
and diminished airline services.

The plaintiffs claim that the Merger, if consummated, would
substantially lessen competition or create a monopoly in the
transportation of airline passengers in the United States, and the
transportation of airline passengers to and from the United States
on international flights, in violation of Section 7 of the Clayton
Act.  Plaintiffs seek a preliminary and permanent injunction to
prohibit the Merger, as well as recovery of costs and attorneys'
fees.  The Settlement does not apply to this action. UAL and
Continental believe the plaintiffs' claims are without merit and
intend to defend this lawsuit vigorously.

Based in Chicago, Illinois, UAL Corporation (NASDAQ: UAUA) --
http://www.united.com/-- is the holding company for United
Airlines, Inc.  United Airlines is the world's second largest air
carrier.  The airline flies to Brazil, Korea and Germany.

The company filed for Chapter 11 protection on Dec. 9, 2002
(Bankr. N.D. Ill. Case No. 02-48191).  James H.M. Sprayregen,
Esq., Marc Kieselstein, Esq., David R. Seligman, Esq., and Steven
R. Kotarba, Esq., at Kirkland & Ellis, represented the Debtors in
their restructuring efforts.  Fruman Jacobson, Esq., at
Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal LLP represented the Official

Corp.  The merger has not yet been completed.

In August 2010, Moody's Investors Service affirmed its 'B2'
corporate family, with negative outlook, for Continental Airlines.
Moody's said the affirmation, among other things, signifies the
potential for it to maintain the B2 rating if the proposed merger
with UAL (B3 corporate family from Moody's, on review for upgrade)
is completed under terms that enable the combined entity to
achieve the potential revenue and cost synergies that have been
identified.  However, the outlook remains negative because of the
industry's weak track record in successfully executing large
business combinations.

Continental caries a 'B' corporate rating, on watch negative, from
Standard & Poor's.


UNIGENE LABORATORIES: New CEO to Push for Proactive Business Devt.
------------------------------------------------------------------
Unigene Laboratories Inc. Chief Executive Officer and president
Ashleigh Palmer, said in a statement, "When I joined Unigene as
President and CEO last month, the Company asked for your patience
so it could implement a rapid and effective transition.  My
management team and I are grateful for your support in this
regard.  In recent weeks, I've had the pleasure of meeting or
interacting with many of you and have greatly appreciated your
warm and enthusiastic welcome.  Thank you!  Although my transition
at Unigene is far from complete, I would like to share with you
some preliminary findings and discuss next steps as I see them
emerging at this early stage."

"Immediately upon my arrival, I initiated a company-wide,
strategic analysis.  Early feedback suggests Unigene's strengths
and opportunities substantially outweigh the Company's weaknesses
and threats.  In particular, Unigene has intellectual property,
professional expertise and know-how representing a genuine
distinctive competence, Peptelligence, which aligns extremely well
with a blossoming therapeutic peptide space.  Despite this
compelling alignment, the Company appears to have lost its way in
recent years and has, thus far, failed to realize its true
potential."

"In my estimation, the 'Old Unigene's' lackluster performance
results in large part from an apparent lack of proactive business
development and targeted business-to-business marketing.  The
upside of acknowledging such a weakness is that it can be swiftly
addressed, neutralized and, over time, transformed into a
strength.  In addition to business development being my personal
area of expertise, we are currently in advanced stages of a
retained search for an experienced 'sell-side', business
development professional to head up this important strategic and
tactical function at Unigene.  Also, I have already begun to
reorganize personnel to ensure the Company is immediately more
business development focused and more service oriented.  It will
take several months before the full impact of these changes
becomes manifest.  Nevertheless, I am convinced such initiatives
will play an important role in releasing what appears to be
enormous, as yet untapped, growth potential and shareholder value.

"Although peptide drugs have been on the market for some time,
their commercialization remains a challenge for the industry,
affecting big pharma, big biotech, specialty pharma, and
development stage companies alike.  In the past, this has often
resulted in considerable disappointment for investors.  Delivering
these relatively large molecules safely, effectively and
efficiently to the body requires state-of-the-art formulation
expertise; cutting-edge drug delivery technology; and cost-
effective, high-yield production and purification capabilities.
Unigene's partnerships with leading biopharmaceutical companies,
such as Novartis and GlaxoSmithKline, clearly validate the
Company's technology to be competitive with, or superior to, that
of other participants in the therapeutic peptide development
space.

"The pharmaceutical industry appears to be aggressively investing
in therapeutic peptide R&D via internal programs and by partnering
with, or acquiring, companies that focus on this area.  In my
opinion, Unigene could not be better strategically positioned to
take advantage of this opportunity.  I anticipate that Unigene's
focused business development capability will facilitate the
establishment of an enhanced, relatively low-risk, high-return,
diversified portfolio of ongoing feasibility, formulation,
preclinical and clinical development projects.  This portfolio
will be relatively low-risk, because the feasibility work will be
sponsored, in most instances, by the prospective partners that are
actively developing the novel peptides.  These partners will
require Unigene's proprietary technologies and peptide expertise
to ensure commercial viability.  By leveraging Unigene's suite of
patented biotechnologies and putting Peptelligence  to work in a
more focused and concerted manner, the Company is likely to be
able to establish a diversified portfolio of proprietary peptide
development partnerships.  In so doing, Unigene investors will be
afforded the opportunity to enjoy an expanded, and potentially
less volatile, stake in one of the industry's emerging high-growth
sectors.

"With the Company firmly in the hands of strong, competent
leadership, I believe it will soon become reestablished as an
innovator in rational peptide design and lead optimization, as
well as an industry leader in superior development, drug delivery
and manufacture of peptide-based therapeutics.  It is my intention
to promote and market these capabilities and ensure that Unigene's
technology is preferentially incorporated into as many therapeutic
peptides as our limited resources permit.  Throughout the
remainder of this calendar year, as the 'New Unigene's'
reformulated strategy emerges from more advanced stages of
business planning, investors can expect to see modest structural
reorganization to realign the Company's resources with a more
focused and more purposeful strategic intent.  A number of
revisions and updates to the Company's website and corporate slide
deck can also be expected.  This will be an iterative process and
will support and facilitate Unigene's focused business development
efforts.  Unigene will also begin actively promoting its new
business plan to institutional investors throughout the remainder
of 2010, beginning with attendance at prominent investor
conferences in September and October.

"It is also imperative that Unigene improves upon the service,
support and management of its existing highly valued partnerships;
in particular, Upsher-Smith (US Forticalr sales); Novartis (high
yield calcitonin manufacture); Tarsa (oral calcitonin drug
delivery); and GlaxoSmithKline (parathyroid hormone drug delivery
and commercial scale manufacture).  I can only imagine the
frustration loyal shareholders must feel when there are relatively
long periods without updates on what is happening with these
important partnerships or, as happened recently, when an equivocal
signal from a Data Monitoring Board is reported.  However, in many
instances, Unigene cannot contractually disclose specific
information about the status of a confidential partnership or is
too far removed from the details of a particular partner's
clinical program (as might be the case with an arm's length
manufacturing license).  Nevertheless, we will do our best to keep
you as well informed as reasonably possible.

"In closing, I would like to emphasize Unigene's commitment to
realizing the potential of a pipeline of novel peptides it has in
early stage development.  In particular, the Company is developing
certain novel peptide analogs for the treatment of obesity.  It is
my understanding that obesity is growing faster than any other
public health issue our nation is facing.  If current trends
continue, over 100 million US adults will be considered obese by
2018 and are anticipated to be associated with more than $300
billion in healthcare costs.  The Company's lead compound, UGP281,
is a potent agonist of the amylin receptor with marked
anorexigenic activity and less unwanted binding to other receptors
attributable to unwanted side effects.  UGP281 can be manufactured
recombinantly and is currently in preclinical development
undergoing feasibility for oral delivery using Unigene's
proprietary technology.  Once an oral formulation has been
finalized, the Company intends to conduct toxicology studies to
support an IND filing to enable early phase clinical testing for
human proof-of-concept.  If successful, we will endeavor to
partner UGP281 for late phase clinical studies, registration and
commercialization.  In addition to Unigene's obesity program, the
Company has licensed intellectual property pertaining to the
Annexin peptide and is currently developing analogs for the
treatment or prevention of tissue damage resulting from acute
inflammatory response.  It is anticipated that these analogs could
have increased circulatory half-life and greater therapeutic
potential than the natural Annexin peptide.

"Finally, but by no means least, I would like to acknowledge and
sincerely thank the extraordinary team of scientists, operational
experts and business professionals that I am so very fortunate to
be working alongside at Unigene.  These are talented, dedicated
and hardworking people who care deeply about the drugs they are
developing and the partners they support.  Investors can rest
assured that every New Unigene employee is absolutely committed to
building shareholder value and reestablishing and maintaining the
Company's leadership position in therapeutic peptides going
forward.

"Again, thank you for your patience and support.  I look forward
to reporting further on my transition and the accelerated progress
of a refocused New Unigene in the coming months," Mr. Palmer says.

Unigene Laboratories, Inc. OTCBB: UGNE) -- http://www.unigene.com/
-- is a biopharmaceutical company focusing on the oral and nasal
delivery of large-market peptide drugs.

Grant Thornton LLP, in New York, expressed substantial doubt about
Unigene Laboratories' ability to continue as a going concern
following the Company's 2009 results.  The firm noted that the
Company has incurred a net loss of $13,400,000 during the year
ended December 31, 2009 and has an accumulated deficit of
approximately $143,000,000 as of December 31, 2009.  As of that
date, the Company's current liabilities exceeded its current
assets by $1,251,000 and its total liabilities exceeded total
assets by $30,442,000.

The Company's balance sheet for December 31, 2009, showed
$23,954,941 and $54,396,602 total liabilities for a $30,441,661
total stockholders' deficit.


USEC INC: Posts $7.2 Million Net Income for June 30 Quarter
-----------------------------------------------------------
USEC Inc. reported net income of $7.2 million for the second
quarter ended June 30, 2010, compared with net income of
$17.3 million or 11 cents per diluted share for the second quarter
of 2009.  For the six-month period ending June 30, USEC reported a
net loss of $2.5 million or 2 cents per diluted and basic share
compared to net income of $15.2 million or 10 cents per diluted
share in the same period of 2009.  Results in the six-month period
of 2010 include a one-time charge of $6.5 million related to a
change in tax treatment of Medicare Part D reimbursements
resulting from recent health care legislation.

The Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2010, showed $3.6 billion
in total assets, $1.2 billion in total current liabilities, and
$556.0 million in other long-term liabilities, resulting in $1.2
billion in total stockholders' equity.

The financial results for the quarter and six-month period ended
June 30, 2010 reflect a decrease in volume of separative work
units sold compared to the same periods of 2009 due to the
variability of nuclear utility customer orders and lower unit
profits on uranium sales.  USEC's advanced technology expense,
primarily from the American Centrifuge project, totaled $26.0
million during the second quarter.  This amount was offset in part
by $10.3 million that was recognized as other income in the second
quarter related to the Department of Energy's cost-sharing support
for American Centrifuge under the terms of a cooperative agreement
between USEC and DOE.

"As we continue deploying our future technology platform, we have
also kept a sharp eye on our current, core operations. During the
first half of 2010, we found ways to manage our costs, identify
additional sales opportunities and work with our customers to
adjust product delivery schedules that have improved the outlook
for full-year financial results," said John K. Welch, USEC
president and chief executive officer.

"Although this is a challenging business environment, we are
taking steps to control costs and improve our outlook, while
continuing to invest in our American Centrifuge technology.  Even
with the substantial expense of this investment in our future, and
tight gross profit margin for 2010, we expect to have
approximately breakeven earnings," he said.

During the quarter, USEC concluded its process for reviewing
strategic alternatives for the company and signed a definitive
agreement with Toshiba Corporation and an affiliate of The Babcock
& Wilcox Company, two major players in the nuclear industry.
Under the terms of the agreement, B&W and Toshiba will each invest
$100 million, over three phases, each of which is subject to
specific closing conditions.  The investment is expected to
strengthen our financial position for the deployment of the
American Centrifuge Plant and create key new business
opportunities throughout the nuclear fuel cycle.

USEC issued a separate news release today providing an update on
the American Centrifuge project.

                              Revenue

Revenue for the second quarter was $459.7 million, a decrease of
11 percent compared to the same quarter of 2009.  Revenue from the
sale of SWU for the quarter was $331.0 million compared to $371.3
million in the same period last year.  The volume of SWU sales
declined 11 percent in the quarter and the average price billed to
customers was essentially unchanged.  For the six-month period,
SWU revenue was $597.6 million, a decrease of 25 percent compared
to the same period of 2009.  SWU sales volume in the six-month
period was 28 percent lower and the average price billed to
customers was 3 percent higher, reflecting the particular
contracts under which SWU were sold during the periods as well as
the general trend of higher prices under contracts signed in
recent years.

Revenue from the sale of uranium was $69.6 million, a decrease of
$25.8 million from the same quarter last year.  The quarterly
results reflect a decrease of 5 percent in uranium volume sold at
average prices that were 23 percent lower than in the 2009 period
due to the mix and timing of uranium contracts.  For the six-month
period, revenue from the sale of uranium was $85.2 million, a
decrease of $38.8 million on sales volume that declined 13 percent
at average prices that declined 21 percent from the same period
last year.  Revenue from our U.S. government contracts segment was
$59.1 million, an increase of $11.5 million compared to the second
quarter last year, and $121.6 million in the six-month period, an
increase of $24.9 million over the same period in 2009 due to
additional cold shutdown services performed at the Portsmouth
gaseous diffusion plant and fee recognition in the first quarter
of 2010 on certain contracts.

In a number of sales transactions, USEC transfers title and
collects cash from customers but does not recognize the revenue
until low enriched uranium is physically delivered.  At June 30,
2010, deferred revenue totaled $344.8 million, an increase of
$42.9 million from December 31, 2009.  The gross profit associated
with deferred revenue as of June 30, 2010, was $58.0 million.

A majority of reactors served by USEC are refueled on an 18-to-24-
month cycle, and this can lead to significant quarterly and annual
swings in SWU sales volume that reflects the mix of  refueling
cycles.  Therefore, short-term comparisons of USEC's financial
results are not necessarily indicative of longer-term results.

                             Cash Flow

At June 30, 2010, USEC had a cash balance of $207.5 million
compared to $32.5 million at March 31, 2010 and $131.3 million at
December 31, 2009.  Cash flow provided by operations in the six
months ended June 30, 2010 was $173.2 million, compared to cash
flow from operations of $221.7 million in the previous year.

Payables under the Russian Contract increased $53.8 million in the
six-month period, due to timing of deliveries.  Inventories
declined $44.3 million during the first half of 2010, representing
a monetization of inventory.  Capital expenditures, primarily
related to the American Centrifuge Plant, totaled $87.9 million
during the six-month period compared to $257.8 million in the same
period of 2009.

WATER PIK: Moody's Raises Ratings on Senior Facilities to 'Ba3'
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service raised the ratings on Water Pik, Inc.'s
first lien senior secured credit facilities to Ba3 from B1 and the
second lien senior secured term loan to B3 from Caa1.
Concurrently, Moody's affirmed the company's B2 corporate family
and probability-of-default ratings.  The ratings outlook remains
stable.

Water Pik's B2 corporate family rating is supported by credit
metrics that are solid for the ratings category, but restrained by
its modest scale and niche focus.

The ratings of the senior secured credit facilities were increased
based on Moody's expectation of lower first lien term loan
balances.  This increases the relative proportion of second lien
claims relative to first lien, thus lowering the expected loss of
both instruments and raising their ratings accordingly, consistent
with Moody's Loss Given Default Methodology.

These ratings were upgraded:

* Senior secured revolving credit facility due 2013 to Ba3 (LGD2,
  24%) from B1 (LGD3, 34%);

* First lien senior secured term loan due 2014 to Ba3(LGD2, 24%)
  from B1 (LGD3, 34%);

* Second lien senior secured term loan due 2014 to B3 (LGD5, 76%)
  from Caa1 (LGD5, 85%).

These ratings were affirmed:

* Corporate family rating at B2;
* Probability-of-default rating at B2.

The last rating action was on October 6, 2009, when Moody's
upgraded Water Pik's corporate family and probability-of-default
ratings to B2 from B3, and the second lien term loan to Caa1 from
Caa2.  Moody's also affirmed the B1 rating on the company's first
lien senior secured credit facilities.

dental water jets, power flossers, automatic toothbrushes,
professional dental products, and replacement showerheads through

YRC WORLDWIDE: Has Deal to Sell $70 Million Conv. Senior Notes

YRC WORLDWIDE: Reports $9.5-Mil. Net Loss for Second Quarter
------------------------------------------------------------
YRC Worldwide Inc. reported its second quarter 2010 results.  For
the second quarter ending June 30, 2010, the company reported a
net loss of $9.5 million and a $.01 loss per share on an average
outstanding fully diluted share count of 1.079 billion.  As a
comparison, the company reported a net loss of $309 million and a
$5.20 loss per share in the second quarter of 2009 with average
fully diluted shares outstanding of 59 million.

The company's balance sheet for June 30, 2010, showed $2.8 billion
in total assets, $1.1 billion in total current liabilities, $913.4
million in long term debt, $146.2 million deferred income taxes,
$352.6 million pension and post retirement, $359.2 million claims
and other liabilities, and $37,000 noncurrent liabilities, for a
$77.2 million in total stockholders' deficit.

"We are pleased with the sequential improvement in our business
volumes and earnings as our pricing discipline, customer mix
management and cost initiatives gain significant traction," stated
Bill Zollars, Chairman, President and CEO of YRC Worldwide.  "For
the quarter, the Regional companies reported positive operating
income, and YRC National achieved positive adjusted EBITDA."

The company's second quarter 2010 results include an $83 million
non-cash reduction to its equity-based compensation expense
related to its March 2010 union equity-based awards.  On a year-
to-date basis, this benefit partially offsets the $108 million
non-cash charge reported in the first quarter of 2010 related to
the same equity awards.  In addition, YRC Logistics is being
reported within discontinued operations for all periods presented
based upon the previously announced definitive agreement to sell a
portion of YRC Logistics business to Austin Ventures for $37
million and discontinuation of its pooled distribution service
offering.  In November 2009 the company sold YRC Logistics'
Dedicated Fleet business for $34 million.

For the second quarter of 2010, the company reported cash usage
from operating activities of $33 million which included working
capital requirements and other expenditures in excess of its
positive adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation
and amortization.  To fund revenue growth the company increased
the aggregate borrowings under its asset-backed securitization
facility by approximately $30 million, inclusive of the $22
million of availability that resulted from the June 2010 amendment
of that facility, and generated $15 million of net proceeds from
its at-the-market equity issuance program.

At June 30, 2010, the company reported cash and cash equivalents
of $144 million, unrestricted availability of $8 million and
unused restricted revolver reserves of $129 million, subject to
the terms of the company's credit agreement, for a total of $281
million.  As a comparison, at March 31, 2010 the company reported
a total of $241 million.

"The sequential growth in our business volumes put increased
pressure on our liquidity even though our adjusted EBITDA from
continuing operations improved from $3 million in April to $22
million in June," said Sheila Taylor, Executive Vice President and
CFO of YRC Worldwide. "We proactively addressed these working
capital needs by partnering with our lenders to open up additional
borrowing availability, while we handled more shipments with fewer
people and improved our consolidated days sales outstanding by
four days compared to last year, our best DSO in more than four
years."

                              Outlook

"With the significant operating momentum we achieved throughout
the second quarter and experienced in July, the company is
positioned for further growth, and we expect to achieve positive
adjusted EBITDA in the third quarter of 2010 in excess of the
second quarter," stated Zollars.

In addition, the company has the following expectations for 2010:

  * Gross capital expenditures in the range of $30 million to $50
    million

  * Excess real estate sales of approximately $50 million

  * Sale and financing leasebacks in the range of $40 million to
    $50 million

  * Interest expense in the range of $40 to $45 million per
    quarter, with cash interest of $10 million to $12 million per
    quarter

  * Effective income tax rate of approximately 2%

                      Credit Agreement Amendment

On July 28, 2010 the company amended its credit agreement, as
follows:

The following provisions are effective upon approval of the
conforming amendment by the applicable pension funds who are
parties to the pension contribution deferral agreement:

  * the company would retain 100% of the estimated $30 million of
    net proceeds from initial closing of the sale of YRC Logistics
    and the company's revolver would be reduced by 50% of those
    proceeds;

  * the company would receive 75%, rather than 25%, of the next
    $20 million of net cash proceeds from sale and leaseback
    transactions and the company's revolver would be reduced by
    50% of those proceeds, subject to the company's satisfaction
    of certain cost reduction criteria established by the credit
    agreement lenders;

  * the company would receive 25% of subsequent proceeds from the
    sale of real estate and sale and leaseback transactions and
    the company's revolver and term loan under the credit
    agreement would be ratably reduced by 75% of such proceeds;
    and

  * the amendment converts $150 million of outstanding revolver
    borrowings to term loans. As of June 30, 2010 the company had
    $358 million of outstanding revolver borrowings.

  * Adjusted EBITDA now includes a new add-back for charges,
    expense and losses from permitted dispositions and
    discontinued operations. For the second quarter of 2010 the
    company's adjusted EBITDA under this amendment was $40 million
    as compared to the covenant requirement of $5 million.

  * The amendment reduces the letter of credit sublimit to $550
    million.  As of June 30, 2010 the company had $455 million in
    outstanding letters of credit under its credit agreement.

* Pimco's El-Erian Says U.S. Has 25% Chance of Deflation
--------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. faces a 25% chance of deflation and a double-dip
recession, according to Mohamed A. El-Erian, of Pacific Investment
Management Co., Bloomberg News reported.

"I do not think the deflation and double-dip is the baseline
scenario, but I think it's the risk scenario," said Mr. El-Erian,
51, which heads Pimco, the world's biggest bond fund.  U.S.
unemployment will probably stay unusually high, he told reporters
August 5 in Tokyo.

Companies are accumulating cash and individuals are saving, making
it tougher to counter deflation, Mr. El-Erian said, according to
the report.  That reduction in private-sector spending makes
government policies to stimulate the economy less effective, he
said.  A mix of the lowest U.S. inflation rate in four decades and
concern that the global recovery will falter is boosting
Treasuries, sending two-year yields to a record low this week.

Review by Henry Berry

Every few years, a new approach is offered for unleashing the full
potential of organized efforts.  These are the quick fixes to
which the title of this book refers.  The jargon of the quick fix
is familiar to any businessperson: decentralization, human
resources, restructuring, mission statement, corporate strategy,
corporate culture, and so on.  These terms are all limited in
scope or objective, and some are even irrelevant or misconceived
with regard to the overall well-being and purpose of a
corporation.

With his extensive experience as a corporate consultant, author of
numerous articles, and professor in business studies, Kilmann
recognizes that each new idea for optimum performance and results
is germane to some area of a corporation.  However, he also
recognizes that each new idea inevitably falls short in bringing
positive change -- that is, a change that is spread throughout the
corporation and is lasting.  At best, when a corporation relies on
an alluring, and sometimes little more than fashionable, idea, it
is a wasteful distraction.  At worst, it can skew a corporate
organization and its operations, thereby allowing the
corporation's true problems or weaknesses to grow until they
become  ruinous.  As the author puts it, "Essentially, it is not
the single approach of culture, strategy, or restructuring that is
inherently ineffective. Rather, each is ineffective only if it is
applied by itself -- as a "quick fix"."

Kilmann tells corporate leaders how to break the cycle of
embracing a quick fix, discarding it after it proves ineffective,
and then turning to a newer and ostensibly better quick fix that
soon proves to be equally ineffective.  For a corporation to break
this self-defeating cycle, the author offers a five-track program.
The five tracks, or elements, of this program are corporate
culture, management skills, team-building, strategy-structure, and
reward system. These elements are interrelated.  The virtue of
Kilmann's multidimensional five-track program is that it addresses
a corporation in its entirety, not simply parts of it.

Kilmann's five tracks offer structural and operational aspects of
a corporation that executives and managers will find familiar in
their day-to-day leadership and strategic thinking.  Thus, the
author does not introduce any unfamiliar or radical perspectives
or ideas, but rather advises readers on how to get all parts of a
corporation involved in productive change by integrating the five
tracks into "a carefully designed sequence of action: one by one,
each track sets the stage for the next track."  Kilmann does more,
though, than bring all significant features of a modern
corporation together in a five-track program and demonstrate the
interrelation of its elements.  His singularly pertinent and
useful contribution is providing a sequence of steps to be
implemented with respect to each track so that a corporation
progresses toward its goals in an integrated way.

Beyond the Quick Fix is a manual for implementing and evaluating
the progress of a five-track program for corporate success.  The
book should be read by any corporate leader desiring to bring
change to his or her organization.

Ralph H. Kilmann has been connected with the University of
Pittsburgh for 30 years.  For a time, he was its George H. Love
Professor of Organization and Management at its Katz Graduate
School of Business.  Additionally, he is president of a firm
specializing in quantum transformations.

Monday's edition of the TCR delivers a list of indicative prices
for bond issues that reportedly trade well below par.  Prices are
obtained by TCR 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 constitutes an offer or solicitation to buy or
sell any security of any kind.  It is likely that some entity
affiliated with a TCR editor holds some position in the issuers"
public debt and equity securities about which we report.

Each Tuesday edition of the TCR contains a list of companies with
insolvent balance sheets whose shares trade higher than $3 per
share in public markets.  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.

A list of Meetings, Conferences and Seminars appears in each
Wednesday's edition of the TCR.  Submissions about insolvency-
related conferences are encouraged.  Send announcements to
conferences@bankrupt.com/

On Thursdays, the TCR delivers a list of recently filed
Chapter 11 cases involving less than $1,000,000 in assets and
liabilities delivered to nation's bankruptcy courts.  The list
includes links to freely downloadable images of these small-dollar
petitions in Acrobat PDF format.

Each Friday's edition of the TCR includes a review about a book of
interest to troubled company professionals.  All titles are
available at your local bookstore or through Amazon.com.  Go to

Monthly Operating Reports are summarized in every Saturday edition

The Sunday TCR delivers securitization rating news from the week
then-ending.
