                    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 Dec. 29, 2000
(Bankr. N.D. Ohio, Case No. 00-43866).  On Aug. 31, 2001, the
Company disclosed $4,853,100,000 in total assets and
$4,823,200,000 in total liabilities.

By order dated Feb. 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 roughly $80 million, plus the assumption of
certain environmental and other obligations.  ISG also purchased
inventories which were located at the integrated steel facilities
for roughly $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 Dec. 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
roughly $120 million plus the assumption of certain environmental
and other obligations.  On Oct. 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 Aug. 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
Oct. 8, 2003, the Court approved the Second Amended Disclosure
Statement.  On Nov. 17, 2003, the Court confirmed the Second
Amended Joint Plan, as modified, and on Dec. 17, 2003, the Plan
became effective 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 a February 2003 Court order, LTV Steel
continued the orderly liquidation and wind down of its businesses.

On Oct. 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 Nov. 17, 2003.  On Dec. 23, 2003, the Court authorized 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.
There is no set of facts known to LTV that will result in proceeds
of asset sales exceeding LTV's known liabilities.  Thus, there
will be no recovery to LTV's stockholders.

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 Aug. 1, 2007.  An
evidentiary hearing on the Chapter 7 Trustee Motion was held in
August 2007.  The Court has not yet issued its order.

                        About Nutrition 21

Purchase, N.Y.-based Nutrition 21, Inc. --
http://www.nutrition21.com/-- is a nutritional bioscience company
that primarily develops and markets raw materials, formulations,
compounds, blends and bulk and other materials to third-party non-
end users to be further fabricated, blended or packaged for
ultimate sales to end-users as nutritional supplements or
otherwise.  The Company holds more than 30 patents for nutrition
products and their uses.

Nutrition 21 and its debtor-affiliates filed for Chapter 11
bankruptcy (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Lead Case No. 11-23712) on
Aug. 26, 2011.  Michael Friedman, Esq., and Keith N. Sambur, Esq.,
at Richards Kibbe & Orbe LLP, serve as the Debtors' counsel.

The Company entered into a Plan Support Agreement, dated as of
Aug. 26, 2011, with holders of approximately 90% of the Company's
outstanding Series J Preferred Stock.  The holders of Series J
Preferred Stock that are parties to the Plan Support Agreement
have agreed, subject to certain conditions, to vote in favor of a
plan of reorganization to be proposed by the Company in respect of
the Bankruptcy Case, so long as that plan is consistent with the
term sheet attached to the Plan Support Agreement setting forth
material terms of a potential plan of reorganization.  The Plan
Term Sheet generally contemplates that the Debtors' assets will be
sold or liquidated and distributed to holders of claims and equity
interests in accordance with the statutory distribution and
priority scheme established by the Bankruptcy Code.  The Plan Term
Sheet further contemplates that holders of the Company's common
stock will receive interests in a liquidating trust entitling such
holders to distributions only after holders of the Series J
Preferred Stock have been paid in full.  The Company believes that
cash distributions on account of the Company's common stock are
unlikely.

On Sept. 22, 2011, the Bankruptcy Court issued an order
establishing bidding procedures for an auction to sell all or
substantially all of the Debtors' assets and scheduling a hearing
for the Bankruptcy Court to consider approval of the Debtors' sale
of such assets to a successful bidder at the Auction.

On Oct. 7, 2011, the Company, Nutrition 21, LLC, and N21
Acquisition Holding, LLC (the "Purchaser") entered into an Asset
Purchase and Sale Agreement, dated as of such date.  The Purchaser
entered into the Original Asset Sale Agreement as a 'stalking
horse" bidder and, accordingly, the consummation of the
transactions contemplated by the Original Asset Sale Agreement was
subject to the Company's solicitation and potential receipt of
higher or otherwise better competing bids at the Auction pursuant
to the Bidding Procedures.

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
