On November 18, 2010, The LTV Corporation, et al., submitted to

A full-text copy of the Debtors' October 2010 operating report is
available at no charge at http://researcharchives.com/t/s?706e

                    About The LTV Corporation

Headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio, The LTV Corp. operates as a
domestic integrated steel producer.  The Company along with 48
subsidiaries filed for Chapter 11 protection on December 29, 2000
(Bankr. N.D. Ohio, Case No. 00-43866).  On August 31, 2001, the
Company disclosed $4,853,100,000 in total assets and
$4,823,200,000 in total liabilities.

By order dated February 28, 2002, the Court approved the sale of
substantially all of the Debtors' integrated steel assets to WLR
Acquisition Corp. n/k/a International Steel Group, Inc., for a
purchase price of approximately $80 million, plus the assumption
of certain environmental and other obligations.  ISG also
purchased inventories which were located at the integrated steel
facilities for approximately $52 million.  The sale of the
Debtors' integrated steel assets to ISG closed in April 2002, and
a second closing related to the purchase of the inventory occurred
in May 2002.

On December 31, 2002, substantially all of the assets of the Pipe
and Conduit Business, consisting of LTV Tubular Company, a
division of LTV Steel Company, Inc., and Georgia Tubing
Corporation, were sold to Maverick Tube Corporation for cash of
approximately $120 million plus the assumption of certain
environmental and other obligations.  On October 16, 2002, the
Debtors announced that they intended to reorganize the Copperweld
Business as a stand-alone business.  The LTV Corporation no longer
exercised any control over the business or affairs of the
Copperweld Business.  A separate plan of reorganization was
developed for the Copperweld Business.  On August 5, 2003, the
Copperweld Business filed a disclosure statement for the Joint
Plan of Reorganization of Copperweld Corporation and certain of
its debtor affiliates.  On October 8, 2003, the Court approved the
Second Amended Disclosure Statement.  On November 17, 2003, the
Court confirmed the Second Amended Joint Plan, as modified, and on
December 17, 2003, the Effective Date occurred and the common
stock was canceled.  Because The LTV Corporation received no
distributions under the Second Amended Plan, its equity in the
Copperweld Business is worthless and has been canceled.

In November 2002, the Debtors paid the DIP Lenders the remaining
balance due for outstanding loans and in December 2002, the
remaining letters of credit were canceled or cash collateralized.
Consequently, the Debtors have no remaining obligation to the DIP
Lenders.  Pursuant to an order of the Court entered on
February 11, 2003, LTV Steel has continued the orderly liquidation
and wind down of its businesses.

On October 8, 2003, the Court entered an Order substantively
consolidating the Chapter 11 estates of LTV Steel and Georgia
Tubing Corporation for all purposes.

In November and December 2003, approximately $91.9 million was
distributed by LTV Steel to other Debtors pursuant to the
Intercompany Settlement Agreement that was approved by the Court
on November 17, 2003.  On December 23, 2003, the Court entered an
Order authorizing LTV Steel and Georgia Tubing to make
distributions to their administrative creditors and, after the
final distribution, to dismiss their Chapter 11 cases and
dissolve.

On March 31, 2005, the Court entered an order that among other
things: (a) approved a distribution and dismissal plan for LTV and
certain other debtors; (b) authorized The LTV Corporation and LTV
Steel to take any and all actions that are necessary or
appropriate to implement the distribution and dismissal plan;
(c) established March 31, 2005, as the record date for identifying
shareholders of LTV that are entitled to any and all shareholder
rights with respect to the distribution and dismissal plan and the
eventual dissolution of LTV; and (d) authorized The LTV
Corporation to establish and fund a reserve account for the
conduct of post-dismissal activities and the payment of post-
dismissal claims.

LTV is in the process of liquidating, and its stock is worthless.

On March 28, 2007, the Official Committee of Administrative
Claimants filed a motion with the Court requesting an order to
approve the appointment of a Chapter 11 trustee.  On April 11,
2007, April 12, 2007, and May 1, 2007, certain of the Defendants
filed motions to convert the case to Chapter 7.  On June 28, 2007,
the ACC filed a motion to withdraw the Chapter 11 Trustee Motion;
the Court granted the ACC's withdrawal motion on August 1, 2007.
An evidentiary hearing on the Chapter 7 Trustee Motion was held in
August 2007.  The Court has not yet issued its order.

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
http://www.bankrupt.com/books/to order any title today.

Monthly Operating Reports are summarized in every Saturday edition
of the TCR.

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