AES RED: S&P Affirms 'BB-' Rating on Senior Secured Debt
--------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Rating Services affirmed its 'BB-' rating on AES
Red Oak LLC's senior secured debt based on the change in ownership
to a fund of Energy Capital Partners (ECP) from a subsidiary of
AES Corp. The senior secured debt consists of $384 million senior
secured bonds ($224 million 8.54% bonds due 2019 and $160 million
9.2% bonds due 2029). As of March 31, 2012, the outstanding amount
on the bonds was $302.6 million (i.e., about $364 per kilowatt
[kW]). The outlook is stable. "We left unchanged our '2' recovery
rating on the debt. The project's name changed to Red Oak Power
LLC," S&P said.

"The change in ownership of AES Red Oak does not affect the
project's debt rating. The project is a combined-cycle, natural
gas-fired generation station in Middlesex County, N.J., with a
capacity of 830 megawatts. The project sells its capacity and
energy to TAQA Gen X LLC under a tolling agreement through 2020
and is thereafter without off-take contracts. We affirmed the
project debt rating in January 2012 following a full review," S&P
said.

"The project company, now Red Oak Power LLC, and its holding
company, Red Oak Intermediate Holdings LLC, which owns all equity
interest in the project that are pledged to lenders, are both
structured to meet Standard & Poor's bankruptcy-remote, single-
purpose entity criteria," S&P said.

"The outlook is stable. We favorably view Red Oak's improved
dispatch levels and improving debt service coverage ratio," said
Standard & Poor's credit analyst Terry Pratt.

"A positive outlook and higher ratings would require sustainable
DSCR levels in excess of 1.35x, which we view as increasingly
possible, given the project's track record over the past year.
However, operational challenges in early 2010 hindered the
project's financial performance. Negative energy margins, high
operating costs, and increasing scheduled principal payments had
led to low DSCR levels. Similar operational challenges in the
future could hurt ratings if the project's DSCR levels go below
1.0x," S&P said.


AGS HOLDINGS: Moody's Assigns 'Caa1' CFR/PDR; Outlook Negative
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a Caa1 Corporate Family Rating
and Caa1 Probability of Default rating to AGS Holdings, LLC.
Moody's also assigned a Caa1 rating to the company's proposed five
year $150 million second lien senior secured note offering. The
rating outlook is negative. The ratings and outlook are subject to
Moody's review of final terms and conditions.

The proceeds from the notes offering, combined with an approximate
$30 million cash equity infusion by the financial sponsor, will be
used to fully repay approximately $131 million of bank debt and
refinance $14 million Holdco debt at AGS's subsidiary, AGS LLC,
fund a buyout of a key game development agreement, and pay
transactions costs. The notes will be guaranteed by domestic
subsidiaries and secured by all assets but will be structurally
subordinated to a $20 million first lien revolving credit facility
that is expected to be put in place at a later date.

AGS LLC's existing ratings, including its Caa2 Corporate Family
Rating, and negative rating outlook were not affected by the
action. Assuming the AGS Holdings notes offering closes, AGS LLC
will have no debt outstanding and its ratings will be withdrawn.
Conversely, if the bond transaction does not close, AGS, LLC's
existing ratings, could be downgraded given the company's likely
payment default on its existing revolver that matures in May 2012.

Ratings assigned:

AGS Holdings, LLC

Corporate Family rating at Caa1

Probability of Default rating at Caa1

$150 million Secured second lien notes at Caa1 LGD 4, 50%

Rating outlook: negative

Ratings remain unchanged and to be withdrawn upon closing of the
proposed transaction:

AGS, LLC

Corporate Family rating at Caa2

Probability of Default rating at Caa3

Senior secured Delayed Draw Term loan at Caa2, LGD 3, 32%

Senior secured revolving credit facility at Caa2, LGD 3, 32%

Senior secured term loan at Caa2, LGD 3, 32%

Ratings Rationale

AGS' Caa1 Corporate Family Rating reflects its very small scale,
significant geographic and customer revenue concentration and
heavy reliance on a few key managers for game development. Its
limited financial resources and weaker product pipeline and game
titles relative to larger better capitalized peers, to some
extent, contributed to the sustained decline in operating profits
and could constrain the company's ability to execute its future
growth strategy. The ratings also acknowledge the company's very
weak interest coverage in part due to the higher interest cost on
the proposed notes relative to existing bank debt, and Moody's
expectation AGS will generate negative free cash flow over the
next 12-18 months. Moody's expects AGS's run-rate cash flow from
operation will be insufficient to cover higher development capital
spending needed to support the company's growth plan. The ratings
are supported by the relatively stable gaming revenue trends in
Oklahoma -- AGS's primary market, the recurring nature of the
majority of its revenue base, and Moody's forward view that gaming
demand in the locals market has shown signs of stability which
should enable AGS to modestly grow its installed base of machines,
thereby increasing, revenue, and EBITDA modestly.

The negative rating outlook reflects the challenges the company
may face in executing its growth strategy into new markets,
including the absence of a new revolving facility that AGS will
need to support the significant upfront capital expenditure and
the company's limited track record of successfully introducing new
and competitive gaming products. The outlook also incorporates
Moody's view that the company needs to continue to improve its
internal controls over financial reporting since significant
deficiency in internal control was identified by its external
auditors for its fiscal year 2011.

A rating upgrade is unlikely in the near term. The stable rating
outlook would require a timely execution of a new $20 million
revolver, renewal of important contract expiring in the near-term,
an increase in the installed base of gaming machines, and
maintenance of an adequate liquidity.

The ratings could be downgraded if AGS is unable to grow its
installed base and increase EBITDA or if the company's fails to
maintain adequate liquidity profile commensurate with its growth
objections.

The principal methodology used in rating AGS Holdings, LLC was the
Global Business & Consumer Service Industry Rating Methodology
published in October 2010. Other methodologies used include Loss
Given Default for Speculative-Grade Non-Financial Companies in the
U.S., Canada and EMEA published in June 2009.

AGS Holdings, LLC designs, manufactures, and operates Class II and
Class III gaming machines principally for the Native American
casino market. The company has an installed base of about 7,700
machines in approximately 127 gaming facilities (principally
Native American casinos across Oklahoma), 10 other US states and
Mexico. AGS is owned by affiliates of Alpine Investors II, LP.


AMERICAN AIRLINES: Unions Mull Support of USAir Merger
------------------------------------------------------
Mike Spector and Susan Carey, writing for The Wall Street Journal,
report that people familiar with the matter said representatives
of American Airlines' three main unions currently believe they
would be treated better in a merger with US Airways Group Inc.
than if American remained independent, and are weighing whether to
publicly air their support for a deal.

The sources told the Journal the unions -- represent pilots,
flight attendants and mechanics and ground workers of American
parent AMR Corp. -- were in discussions Thursday about announcing
their support for how US Airways intends to treat them in the
potential merger.

The sources noted, however, that the decision on whether to go
public with their support remained in flux.

The unions sit on AMR's nine-member creditors committee.
According to WSJ, people familiar with the matter said, the unions
and other creditors, looking for the best possible deal on labor
terms and debt repayment, want AMR to explore possible merger
opportunities, including with US Airways.  In discussions with
creditors, US Airways has asserted a merger with AMR could reap
more than $1.5 billion in additional revenue and cost savings,
creating additional money to ease unions' pain, according to
people familiar with the matter.

TheStreet and Bloomberg also reported on the unions' support for a
merger.

WSJ relates that in a letter to employees, Mr. Horton said: "There
continues to be much takeover speculation in the press, fueled by
those who seek to serve their own agendas, including the
circulation of misleading information. I expect this to continue
and to escalate. Naturally, there are many who do not want
American to succeed."

The sources also told WSJ that US Airways is holding active
internal discussions on making a formal AMR merger proposal, but
US Airways hasn't decided when to make such a proposal, or how to
go about it.  The sources said US Airways representatives are
debating whether to approach American's CEO, the creditors or both
when making the proposal.

WSJ relates the Allied Pilots Association and Transport Workers
Union declined to comment.  The Association of Professional Flight
Attendants didn't respond to requests for comment.

AMR is seeking $1.25 billion in annual labor cost savings, but
hasn't reached a consensual agreement with unions during
negotiations, which have stalled with two of the three unions.


AMERICAN CAPITAL: Moody's Issues Summary Credit Opinion
-------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service issued a summary credit opinion on
American Capital Ltd. and includes certain regulatory disclosures
regarding its ratings.  The release does not constitute any change
in Moody's ratings or rating rationale for American Capital, Ltd.

Moody's current ratings on American Capital, Ltd. are:

Long Term Corporate Family ratings of B2

Senior Unsecured (domestic currency) ratings of B2

Senior Unsecured Shelf (domestic currency) ratings of (P)B2

Preferred Shelf (domestic currency) ratings of (P)Caa1

Ratings Rationale

American Capital, Ltd.'s (ACAS) issuer and senior unsecured
ratings are B2. The rating outlook is stable.

ACAS is a private equity fund and alternative asset manager. The
company's ratings are supported by its expertise and scale
investing in private middle market companies. Additionally,
ratings are supported by the company's diversified (both by
geography and business sector) and granular investment portfolio.
Also important is the company's substantial equity base as
mandated by business development company (BDC) regulations.

Offsetting these positives is ACAS' business model which carries
significant event risk in times of economic stress. ACAS' business
model includes the following characteristics: portfolio
investments that are highly levered and illiquid, as well as fair
value accounting for investments that can result in volatile
investment values and capital levels (portfolio investments are
revalued each quarter). Prior to 3Q2011, ACAS was unable to fully
retain earnings capital due to the registered investment company
(RIC) requirement that the company distribute 90% of ordinary
taxable income and net realized gains. As of 3Q2011, the company
failed the asset diversification requirements to maintain its RIC
tax status and thus, will be subject to federal and state taxes.
Moody's views ACAS' current non-RIC tax status (no longer required
to distribute 90% of ordinary income and net realized gains) as
credit neutral for debt holders since ACAS may decide to use any
capital from earnings to repurchase stock or pay dividends.

ACAS' investment portfolio has performed poorly during the ongoing
period of economic stress. The fair value of the company's
investment portfolio was 74% of cost as of September 30, 2011,
reflecting significant mark downs in the portfolio's aggregate
value. In addition, ACAS' investment portfolio, compared to other
Moody's rated BDC peers, is more heavily skewed toward
subordinated debt and equity investments (82% at 3Q2011);
subordinated debt and equity securities valuations are more
volatile than senior debt securities within a portfolio company's
capital structure, due to the lower priority of payment. Debt
investment non-accruals were approximately 19% of debt investment
costs at 3Q2011, which is significantly higher than other Moody's
BDC rated peers. During fiscal 2010, ACAS recorded significant
write-downs in investment fair values that led to substantial
declines in the company's capital levels. As a result of breaching
a minimum asset coverage covenant, ACAS restructured approximately
$2.4 billion in debt. The debt restructure provided to debt
exchange participants a first lien claim on substantially all of
ACAS' previously unencumbered assets. ACAS' senior unsecured
rating is the same as its B2 corporate family rating, despite the
company's high level of secured debt on a pro-forma basis, in
recognition of substantial asset coverage for all classes of debt.

Rating Outlook

The rating outlook is stable. This reflects ACAS' strong asset
coverage post debt restructuring and its moderate medium term debt
maturity profile.

What Could Change the Rating - Up

There is currently no upward pressure on the rating due to the
high level of subordinate and equity portfolio investments that
have significant impairment risk.

What Could Change the Rating - Down

ACAS's rating would come under negative pressure if the company
experiences investment portfolio write-downs that substantially
reduce the company's capital base or if the company violates debt
covenants in the future.

The principal methodology used in this rating was Finance Company
Global Rating Methodology published in March 2012.


AMERICAN REALTY: S&P Puts 'B+' Corp. Credit Rating on Watch Pos
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services placed its 'B+' corporate
credit rating on American Realty Capital Trust (ARCT) on
CreditWatch with positive implications following the REIT's recent
internalization of its management functions and listing of its
common stock on the NASDAQ.

"We expect these actions to reduce overhead, improve financial
flexibility, and strengthen coverage of the common dividend," said
credit analyst Eugene Nusinzon.

"We expect to resolve the CreditWatch placement over the next 90
days. The outcome could result in a one- or two-notch upgrade and
is contingent on our assessment of information that we recently
requested from ARCT's management. Among other factors, our
assessment will focus on the company's overall liquidity, coverage
of the common dividend, and expectations for growth and credit
metrics going forward," S&P said.


AMERICAN RESIDENTIAL: S&P Revises Outlook on 'B' CCR to Stable
--------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services affirmed its 'B' corporate
credit rating on Memphis-based American Residential Services LLC,
and revised the outlook to stable from negative.

"At the same time, we affirmed our issue-level rating on the
company's $165 million senior secured second-lien notes due 2015
at 'B'. The recovery rating is '4', indicating our expectation of
average (30% to 50%) recovery for noteholders in the event of a
payment default," S&P said.

"The company should be able to modestly increase profitability and
improve credit measures over the next year," said Standard &
Poor's credit analyst Linda Phelps.

"Standard & Poor's ratings on American Residential Services LLC
reflect our view that the company's financial risk profile will
remain 'highly leveraged,' including a very aggressive financial
policy that overshadows the company's generally consistent
operating performance," S&P said.

"Although we believe the company has the capacity to reduce
leverage over time, we see the potential for another significant
debt-financed shareholder distribution or other leveraging event
in the future based on majority ownership by a financial sponsor,
which we believe may influence financial governance toward
shareholder-friendly decision-making," said Ms. Phelps.

"We characterize ARS' business risk profile as 'weak' due to its
narrow product focus, seasonality, and vulnerability to economic
cycles and weather conditions. We believe the company should
continue to benefit from its good positions in the competitive,
highly fragmented, heating, venting, air conditioning (HVAC) and
plumbing markets," S&P said.

"The outlook is stable. We believe the company's credit metrics
will strengthen modestly in 2012, largely as a result of EBITDA
growth, particularly with normalized weather patterns. However, we
could lower our ratings if the company pursues additional debt-
financed dividend activity or operating performance is weaker than
we anticipate, possibly due to an unseasonably cool summer in its
major markets, resulting in leverage exceeding 7x. With stable
debt levels, we estimate pro forma EBITDA would have to decline
about 6%-7% for this to occur. Though unlikely in the next one to
two years, we could raise the ratings if EBITDA growth continues
and if ARS' financial policy remains less aggressive, allowing us
to believe leverage can be sustained below 5x. EBITDA would need
to rise over 35% from current levels for this to occur," S&P said.


AMWINS GROUP: S&P Puts 'B' Counterparty Credit Rating on Watch
--------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services placed its 'B' counterparty
credit rating and all issue-level ratings on AmWINS Group Inc. on
CreditWatch with developing implications.

"The CreditWatch placement follows AmWINS' announcement that it
has reached a definitive agreement with New Mountain Capital LLC
in conjunction with a recapitalization of the company," said
Standard & Poor's credit analyst Julie Herman. "The $1.3 billion
transaction will give the private equity firm a majority stake in
AmWINS; other terms of the transaction were not disclosed. The
CreditWatch placement reflects our limited information on details
of the transaction at this time and our resultant uncertainty
regarding the recapitalization's effect on AmWINS' capital
structure, cash flows, and credit protection measures."

"New Mountain Capital has approximately $9 billion in assets under
management. AmWINS current majority owner is private equity firm
Parthenon Capital Partners, an investor in the company since 2005.
AmWINS also announced that there will be no changes to its senior
management, local management, or operational teams as a result of
the transaction," S&P said.

"Over the next few weeks, we expect to meet with AmWINS management
team to discuss details of the recapitalization under New Mountain
Capital," Ms. Herman continued. "We expect to resolve the
CreditWatch listing over the next 30 days following these
discussions. Potential outcomes of the CreditWatch could be an
affirmation, and upgrade by one notch or more, or a downgrade by
one notch or more. The outcome will primarily depend on our
analysis of the effect of the transaction on the company's capital
structure, cash flows, and credit protection measures."


APPLETON PAPERS: Board OKs Disposal of Papermaking Assets
---------------------------------------------------------
In connection with its approval of the Supply Agreement dated
Feb. 22, 2012, between the Appleton Papers Inc. and Domtar Paper
Company, LLC, and Domtar A.W. LLC, the Board of Directors
authorized a plan for Appleton to dispose of papermaking assets at
its facility in West Carrollton, Ohio, and move more carbonless
coating to Appleton's converting plant in Appleton, Wisconsin.
The Company plans to continue its thermal coating operations at
the facility in West Carrollton.  The plan is expected to result
in pre-tax charges associated with the manufacturing capacity
rationalization.  The plan is expected to result in a reduction of
approximately 330 jobs at the West Carrollton mill.  The Board
delegated authority to the Company's management to determine the
final plan with respect to these initiatives, which are expected
to include employee termination costs, accelerated depreciation on
certain equipment and other associated costs.  At that time, as
management had not yet finalized the specific actions to be taken,
the Company was not able to make a good faith estimate of (i) the
amount or range of amounts of each major type of cost that will be
incurred, or (ii) the amount or range of amounts of costs that
will result in future cash expenditures.

The Company anticipates that, in connection with implementing the
plan, it will record pre-tax charges of approximately $105 to $121
million, of which approximately $23 to $28 million relate to
employee termination costs and approximately $80 to $90 million
relate to impairment and accelerated depreciation on certain
equipment.  The remaining charges relate to other exit costs.

The Company expects that the vast majority of the charges will be
incurred in the first three quarters of 2012 with the timing of
the charges to be determined primarily by the provisions and
structure of the severance arrangements.

The Company expects the plan will result in aggregate cash
expenditures in the range of $39 to $45 million anticipated to be
paid over the next five years.

As previously announced, the Company expects to realize pretax
benefits ranging from $25 to $30 million annually as a result of
the Supply Agreement and cessation of paper manufacturing at West
Carrollton.

BLACKBOARD INC: S&P Rates New $60-Mil. Term Loan 'B+'
-----------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its 'B+' issue level
rating (one notch higher than the corporate credit rating) to
Washington, D.C.-based Blackboard Inc.'s proposed $60 million
incremental term loan with a recovery rating of '2',indicating
substantial (70%-90%) recovery of principal in the event of a
payment default.

"At the same time, we also assigned 'B+' issue-level ratings to
the company's $100 million revolver due 2016 and $780 million
first-lien term loan due 2018. Both have recovery ratings of '2',
indicating substantial (70%-90%) recovery in the event of a
payment default," S&P said.

"In addition, we assigned our 'CCC+' rating to Blackboard's $350
million second-lien term loan due 2019. The recovery rating is
'6', indicating negligible (0%-10%) recovery in the event of a
payment default," S&P said.

"We also affirmed our 'B' corporate credit rating on Blackboard.
The outlook is stable," S&P said.

"We believe Blackboard's 'highly leveraged' financial risk profile
more than offsets the company's 'fair' business risk profile,"
said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Jacob Schlanger. "We
estimate pro forma adjusted debt leverage over 9x following its
recently announced acquisitions of Moodlerooms and NetSpot and
that it will decline over the coming year, given our expectation
for continued revenue and EBITDA growth and the benefit from cost
savings already implemented."

"The outlook is stable. While leverage is high at the outset, we
expect it to decline somewhat over the coming year due to growth
in both EBITDA and revenues. This would reflect the growing
product offering, and cash generation for debt reduction," S&P
said.

"An upgrade over the near term is unlikely, as the company's
highly leveraged debt structure is a limiting factor. We could
lower the rating if increased competitive factors lead to a
deteriorating business profile or further debt-financed
acquisitions prevent leverage from dropping to the high-7x level
over the next year," S&P said.


BLAST ENERGY: GBH CPAs Raises Going Concern Doubt
-------------------------------------------------

Headquartered in Dallas, Texas, Builders FirstSource Inc. --

products for residential new construction.  The Company operates
in 9 states, principally in the southern and eastern United
States, and has 55 distribution centers and 51 manufacturing
facilities, many of which are located on the same premises as its
distribution facilities.

Builders FirstSource reported a net loss of $95.51 million on
$700.34 million of sales for the year ended Dec. 31, 2010,
compared with a net loss of $61.85 million on $677.88 million of
sales during the prior year.

The Company also reported a net loss of $48.29 million on
$586.41 million of sales for the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2011,
compared with a net loss of $70.89 million on $553.25 million of
sales for the same period a year ago.

The Company's balance sheet at Sept. 30, 2011, showed
$391.03 million in total assets, $274.02 million in total
liabilities, and $117.01 million in total stockholders' equity.

                           *     *     *

Builders FirstSource Inc. carries 'CCC+' issuer credit ratings,
with negative outlook, from Standard & Poor's.   S&P affirmed the
ratings in April 2011.  "The ratings affirmation reflects our
belief that Builders FirstSource will likely continue to generate
negative free cash flow over the upcoming year, given the ongoing
weakness in new residential housing markets.  While the company's
liquidity position, which we currently view as adequate, is likely
to somewhat improve due to the increased cash balances following
the planned refinancing and the extended maturity of its revolving
credit facility, it will likely continue to rely primarily on its
cash balances to meet its interest and operating obligations until
total housing starts improve at least 35% from 2010's level.  If
housing starts were to remain at its recent historically low
levels, we believe the proposed refinancing would allow Builders
FirstSource to fund its anticipated cash shortfall for
approximately two years.  The ratings also reflect what Standard &
Poor's Ratings Services considers to be the company's vulnerable
business profile given its significant exposure to highly cyclical
new residential construction markets and its narrow end-market
focus and geographic scope," S&P elaborated.

In April 2011, Moody's Investors Service assigned 'Caa2' corporate
family rating and probability of default ratings to Builders
FirstSource.  Moody's said the 'Caa2' Corporate Family Rating
results from very weak operating performance due to ongoing
pressures in the residential new construction end market, the
primary driver of BLDR's revenues.  Although some areas within
BLDR's primary geographic markets of North Carolina and South
Carolina may have some pockets of strength, overall, Moody's does
not expect substantial improvement in new housing starts in 2011
relative to 2010.  The company's products are highly price
sensitive to competition and ongoing market conditions, making it
difficult for it to pass on substantial price increases.  It is
also exposed to fluctuating costs associated with lumber, its
major raw material, adding to earnings volatility. For 2010,
adjusted operating margins are inadequate at negative 7.6% and
free cash flow-to-debt is insufficient at negative 15.3% (adjusted
per Moody's methodology).  The company's inability to generate
positive earnings will result in very weak credit metrics for the
foreseeable future and will require cash to fund operating
shortfalls.

CASCADES INC: S&P Revises Outlook on 'BB-' CCR to Stable
--------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services revised its outlook on Cascades
Inc. to stable from positive. At the same time, Standard & Poor's
affirmed its 'BB-' long-term corporate credit rating on the
company.

"We also affirmed our 'BB+' issue-level rating on Cascades'
secured debt; the '1' recovery rating on the debt is unchanged,
indicating our expectations of very high (90%-100%) recovery in
the event of default. In addition, we affirmed our ' B+' issue-
level rating on the company's senior unsecured debt. The '5'
recovery rating, reflecting our expectation of modest (10%-30%)
recovery in default, is unchanged," S&P said.

"The outlook revision reflects our view that the company's
leverage will not decline to 3.5x in 2012 as we expected
previously," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Jatinder Mall.
"Although leverage increased in 2011 in response to higher
recycled fiber inputs prices, company acquisitions, and capital
expenditure, we are likely to see leverage decline to below 5.0x
in 2012 (but not as low as 3.5x) because input prices have
dropped."

"The ratings on Cascades reflect what Standard & Poor's views as
the company's good market position in consolidated markets, a
diverse revenue stream, and vertical integration. These strengths
are partially offset, in our opinion, by what we see as the
company's exposure to cyclical boxboard and containerboard
markets, volatile recycled fiber prices, and high debt levels,"
S&P said.

"Cascades is an integrated packaging and tissue company that
manufactures, converts, collects, and processes recycled paper. It
is the No. 1 containerboard producer in Canada, the second-largest
producer of coated recycled boxboard in Europe, and fourth-largest
tissue producer in North America. The company operates facilities
in Canada, the U.S., and Europe," S&P said.

"The stable outlook reflects our view that the company's leverage
will not decline to 3.5x in 2012 as expected previously. Based on
our expectation of recycled input prices, we believe EBITDA
generation will improve markedly in 2012 to 2010 levels and
leverage will be about 5x, gradually declining in subsequent
years. Standard & Poor's would likely lower the ratings on
Cascades if volumes and margins do not recover as expected in the
first half of 2012, leading to lower-than-expected EBITDA and a
sustainable leverage greater than 5x, and should headroom under
the fixed charge covenant not improve. Given our expectations, an
upgrade in the near term is unlikely but would require the company
to demonstrate its ability to sustain a leverage of 3.5x," S&P
said.


CDC CORP: China.com Wants Chapter 11 Case Dismissed

CHAPARRAL ENERGY: Moody's Rates $350MM Sr. Unsecured Notes 'B3'
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a B3 rating to Chaparral
Energy, Inc.'s offering of $350 million senior unsecured notes due
2022. The proceeds of the notes will be used for debt repayment.
The notes are rated one notch below Chaparral's B2 Corporate
Family Rating (CFR). The rating outlook is stable.

"With approximately 50% of its average daily production comprised
of crude oil, Chaparral is well-positioned to enjoy robust cash
flow generation for at least the next several years based on our
expectations of a sustained high oil price environment," commented
Andrew Brooks, Moody's Vice President. "Reflecting the extent of
its liquids production, Chaparral's unleveraged cash margin
increased in 2011 to over $35 per Boe."

Rating Rationale

Chaparral's B2 CFR reflects its scale in terms of production and
proved reserves and high debt leverage, but also its strong cash
margins and improved liquidity. Chaparral's core operating
production is located in the Mid-Continent, where it is Oklahoma's
third largest oil producer, and in the Permian Basin, together
representing 90% of the company's proved reserves. At December 31,
2011, Chaparral's proved reserves totaled 156.3 million Boe (64%
proved developed, 64% liquids), and production averaged 23,712 Boe
per day.

In the Mid-Continent, Chaparral's conventional drilling techniques
are increasingly being supplemented by the horizontal drilling of
unconventional resource plays and by its investment in CO2
enhanced oil recovery (EOR). While production growth could
decelerate somewhat in 2012 as Chaparral redirects its spending to
more costly CO2 EOR development, its overall operating profile
continues to benefit from a long-lived reserve base, which has the
potential capacity to generate sizable ongoing production growth
longer term as the front-loaded EOR investment commences
operations.

The B3 senior unsecured note rating reflects both the overall
probability of default of Chaparral, to which Moody's assigns a
PDR of B2, and a loss given default of LGD4-62%. The size of its
senior secured revolving credit facility's priority claim relative
to the senior unsecured notes results in the notes being rated one
notch beneath the B2 Corporate Family Rating (CFR) under Moody's
Loss Given Default Methodology.

Chaparral's SGL-3 rating reflects adequate liquidity; as of April
2012 the company had approximately $305 million available under
its $375 million secured borrowing base revolving credit, which
has an April 2016 scheduled maturity date.

With the proceeds of this offering, Chaparral intends to fund the
tender offer for its $325 million 8.875% senior notes due 2017,
replacing existing debt and extending its average debt maturity
profile. Chaparral expects 2012 capital spending to approximate
$330 million, with any cash flow shortfalls to be funded with the
proceeds of certain asset sales.

The stable outlook is based upon the expectation that Chaparral
will continue to generate growth in liquids production, reserve
bookings and profitability while maintaining its recently improved
F&D cost profile, and further assumes a limited use of incremental
debt. A material improvement in leverage reflecting debt on
production below $35,000 per Boe could prompt consideration of an
upgrade, presuming improved F&D cost levels remain intact.
Deterioration in its already elevated debt levels, or a material
deterioration in capital productivity as it relates in particular
to Chaparral's growing EOR investment, could warrant a downgrade.

The principal methodology used in rating Chaparral was the Global
Independent Exploration and Production Industry Methodology
published in December 2011. Other methodologies used include Loss
Given Default for Speculative-Grade Non-Financial Companies in the
U.S., Canada and EMEA published in June 2009.

Chaparral Energy, Inc. is a privately owned independent E&P
company headquartered in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.


CHAPARRAL ENERGY: S&P Rates New $350MM Sr. Unsecured Notes 'B-'
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its 'B-' senior
unsecured issue rating to Oklahoma City-based Chaparral Energy
Inc.'s proposed $350 million senior unsecured notes due 2022. "The
recovery rating on the notes is '5', indicating our expectation of
modest (10% to 30%) recovery in the event of a payment default.
The 'B' corporate credit rating and stable outlook on Chaparral
are unaffected. The exploration and production company intends to
use proceeds to repurchase its existing $325 million notes due
2017 and for general purposes. As of Dec. 31, 2011, Chaparral had
about $1 billion in balance sheet debt," S&P said.

"The ratings on Chaparral reflect its high debt levels, elevated
cost structure, and limited scale of operations. Standard & Poor's
also incorporates Chaparral's mix of crude oil and natural gas
reserves, solid reserve life, and improving financial performance
in the ratings," S&P said.

motion for permission to file a competing Chapter 11 plan.

The report relates that OneUnited, describing itself as the only
African American-owned bank in Massachusetts, wants to file a plan
of its own to fend off the reorganization plan the church filed
along with the Chapter 11 petition.  The bank says the church's
plan can never be approved because the church would retain
ownership even though the secured lender objects and won't be paid
in full.  The bank says that the so-called new-value contribution
of $1.5 million by the First Episcopal District of the African
Methodist Episcopal Church is illusory in substance.

According to the report, the disclosure statement describing the
church's plan is scheduled for an approval hearing on May 1. The
bank wants its motion for permission to file a competing plan to
be on the same day's calendar. The bank's plan would pay unsecured
creditors in full.

Charles Street African Methodist Episcopal Church --
http://www.csrrc.org/-- is located in Roxbury, Massachusetts.
The Church is to advocate for the needs of community residents and
to strengthen individuals, families, and the community by

No. 12-12292) on March 20, 2012, to prevent its lenders, OneUnited
Bank, from foreclosing on a $1.1 million loan and auctioning off
the church.  Judge Frank J. Bailey presides over the case.
Jonathan Lackow, Esq., at Ropes & Gray LLP, represents the Debtor.
The Debtor estimated both assets and debts of between $1 million

CHURCH STREET: Auction Postponed Until May 11
---------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that Church Street Health Management LLC will auction the
business on May 11, rather than April 20.  The provider of
management services for 67 dental practices in 22 states reported
a $2.1 million net loss in March on total revenue of $11.6
million.  Unless outbid, existing first-lien lenders are to buy
the business in exchange for $25 million in debt. Other bids are
now due May 4, rather than April 16. The hearing to approve the
sale will take place May 22.

The report notes that the official creditors' committee was given
the right by the bankruptcy judge to require the company to turn
over copies of insurance policies.  The committee says that the
largest unsecured claims are held by patients who say they were
given services unnecessarily.  Seeing the policies will help, the
committee says, in deciding if the insurance company was
entitled to deny coverage of the claims.

                        About Church Street

services for 67 dental practices in 22 states, filed a Chapter 11

COLEMAN CABLE: Moody's Affirms 'B2' CFR; Outlook Positive
---------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service changed Coleman Cable, Inc.'s ratings
outlook to positive from stable. Concurrently, Moody's affirmed
the company's B2 corporate family and probability of default
ratings, and the B3 rating on the $275 million senior unsecured
notes due 2018. Moody's also upgraded the speculative grade
liquidity rating to SGL-2 from SGL-3.

The outlook revision reflects Coleman's improving volume trends,
owing to strength across the bulk of its end-markets. The revision
also reflects generally higher profitability levels that have
translated into stronger credit metrics in recent periods, and
Moody's expectation that these trends will continue.

Ratings affirmed:

Corporate family rating at B2

Probability of default rating at B2

$275 million 9% senior unsecured notes due 2018 at B3 (LGD5, 70%).
Point estimate revised from (LGD4, 64%)

Rating upgraded:

Speculative grade liquidity rating to SGL-2 from SGL-3

Ratings Rationale

Coleman's sales volumes increased 5.5% in 2011, on top of a 16.7%
increase in 2010 when it recovered from the downturn. Leverage, as
represented by debt to EBITDA, declined to 4.2 times in 2011 from
4.5 times in 2010 (incorporates Moody's standard adjustments).
Moody's expects continued strength in the company's end-markets
will translate into further improvements in operating performance
such that leverage will decline below 4.0 times over the next 12
to 18 months.

The upgrade of the speculative grade liquidity rating to SGL-2
reflects Moody's view that Coleman will maintain a good liquidity
profile over the near-term given availability under its $250
million asset-backed revolving credit facility due 2016 and
flexibility under financial covenants. Weighing on these positive
factors is Moody's expectation that working capital growth will
pressure free cash flow generation.

Moody's could upgrade Coleman's ratings with growth in organic
volume trends that leads to sustained leverage below 4.0 times and
EBIT coverage of interest expense of about 2.0 times.

Moody's could revise Coleman's ratings outlook to stable if
negative volume trends, volatility in coppers prices, and/or
pressure on other input costs have a negative impact on
profitability such that leverage increases above 4.5 times and
EBIT to interest falls below 1.5 times. Moody's could lower
Coleman's ratings if leverage increases above 6.0 times, EBIT
coverage of interest expense falls below 1.0 times, and/or there
is a material weakening in its liquidity profile.

Headquartered in Waukegan, Illinois, Coleman Cable, Inc. is a
leading designer, developer, manufacturer and supplier of
electrical wire and cable products for consumer, commercial and
industrial applications, with operations primarily in the United
States. The company reported sales of $867 million for the fiscal-
year ended December 31, 2011.

The principal methodology used in this rating was Global
Manufacturing Industry published in December 2010.

CONGRESSIONAL HOTEL: Files Sale Based Liquidating Plan
------------------------------------------------------
Congressional Hotel Corp. and Casco Hotel Group, LLC, filed a
joint disclosure statement in support of its plan of liquidation
dated Feb. 7, 2012.

Rockville Hospitality, LLC, has agreed to purchase the Debtors'
assets for $19,500,000, less a Mold Remediation Credit of
$475,000.  For purposes of allocating the Purchase Price
between the Debtors' estates, each Debtor is deemed to retain
title to its property as the property was titled prior to the
termination of the Ground Lease.  Accordingly, Casco is selling
its right, title and interest in the Land, while CHC is selling
its right, title and interest in the remaining Assets.  Casco has
engaged an appraiser who has valued the Land encumbered by the
Ground Lease to be $3,450,000, and the Land unencumbered by the
Ground Lease to be $5,700,000.  Further Court Order will
conclusively determine the value of the Land owned by Casco and
therefore the allocation of the proceeds of the sale of the
Debtors' Assets.  Prior to disbursement of funds pursuant to the
Plan, the Court will determine the allocation of the proceeds from
the sale of the Debtors' Assets to the Debtors' respective
estates.

The Plan contemplates, among other things, the payment in full in
cash of all Administrative Claims and Priority Tax Claims.

The classification and treatment of claims against Congressional
Hotel are:

     A. Class 1 (Allowed Citizens Secured Claim) will be paid in
        full at Closing from the proceeds of the sale of the
        Assets.  Estimated recovery is 100%.

     B. Class 2 (Allowed Secured Claim of Montgomery County,
        Maryland) will be paid in full at Closing from the
        proceeds of the sale of the Assets.  Estimated recovery
        is 100%.

     C. Class 3 (Priority Tax Claims) will be paid in full on or
        before the Effective Date.  Estimated recovery is 100%.

     D. Class 4 (General Unsecured Claims) will receive a pro rata
        share of any remaining monies after the payment of all
        secured, administrative and priority claims.  Estimated
        recovery is yet to be determined, once valuation of the
        Debtors' respective estates is determined by further Court
        order.

     E. Class 5 (Equity Interest Holders) will be cancelled and
        each holder will not be legally entitled to receive or
        retain distributions on account of Equity Interests.
        Estimated recovery is 0%.

The classification and treatment of claims against Casco Hotel
are:

     A. Class 1 (Allowed Secured Claim of Montgomery County,
        Maryland) will be paid in full at Closing from the
        proceeds of the sale of the Assets.  Estimated recovery
        is 100%.

     B. Class 2 (Equity Interest Holders) will be cancelled and
        each Holder will receive or retain distributions after all
        Claims of CASCO creditors are paid in full.  Estimated
        recovery is Unknown.

The hearing to consider the approval of the Disclosure Statement
will be held on April 25, 2012, at 10:00 a.m.

DELTA PETROLEUM: Robbins Geller Launches Class Suit vs. D&Os
------------------------------------------------------------
Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd LLP disclosed that a class action has
been commenced in the U.S. District Court for the District of
Colorado on behalf of purchasers of Delta Petroleum, Inc. publicly
traded securities during the period between Nov. 9, 2010 and Nov.
9, 2011.

The firm said in its press release, "If you wish to serve as lead
plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than 60 days from date
of filing.  If you wish to discuss this action or have any
questions concerning this notice or your rights or interests,
please contact plaintiff's counsel, Darren Robbins of Robbins
Geller at 800-449-4900 or 619-231-1058, or via e-mail at
djr@rgrdlaw.com.  If you are a member of this class, you can view
a copy of the complaint as filed or join this class action online
at http://www.rgrdlaw.com/cases/delta/ Any member of the putative
class may move the Court to serve as lead plaintiff through
counsel of their choice, or may choose to do nothing and remain an
absent class member."

The complaint charges certain of Delta's officers and directors
with violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.  Delta is
not named as a defendant in the action due to its filing for
bankruptcy protection on Dec. 16, 2011.

The complaint alleges that during the Class Period, defendants
issued materially false and misleading statements regarding the
Company's business and financial results.  As a result of
defendants' false statements, Delta stock traded at artificially
inflated prices during the Class Period, reaching a high of $11.70
per share on Feb. 28, 2011.

On Nov. 9, 2011, Delta announced is third quarter 2011 financial
results.  The Company reported a net loss of ($429.4) million, or
($15.40) diluted earnings per share, for the quarter ended
Sept. 30, 2011.  The significant loss was due mostly to costs
associated with drilling dry holes.  The Company additionally
provided an update on its strategic alternatives process, advising
that the Company had not received any offers to purchase the
Company or its assets, and as a result, Delta would be forced to
restructure its indebtedness.  Delta further warned investors that
should it be unsuccessful in achieving a transaction or
transactions addressing the Company's liquidity, it would be
forced to seek protection under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy
Code. On this news, Delta stock collapsed $1.34 per share to close
at $0.71 per share on Nov. 10, 2011, a one-day decline of 65% on
volume of nearly 4.5 million shares.

On Dec. 16, 2011, Delta announced that it, along with its
affiliates, had filed a voluntary petition for reorganization
under Chapter 11 in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court.

According to the complaint, the true facts, which were known by
defendants but concealed from the investing public during the
Class Period, were as follows: (a) the Company was not adequately
reserving for its dry hole costs and impairments in violation of
Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, causing its financial
results to be materially misstated; (b) Delta's unproductive
assets would hinder its ability to find a buyer for itself or its
assets as the value of the Company's assets was less than the
value of its aggregate debt; and (c) the Company had far greater
exposure to liquidity concerns than it had previously disclosed.

Plaintiff seeks to recover damages on behalf of all purchasers of
Delta publicly traded securities during the Class Period (the
"Class").  The plaintiff is represented by Robbins Geller, which
has expertise in prosecuting investor class actions and extensive
experience in actions involving financial fraud.

Robbins Geller, a 180-lawyer firm with offices in San Diego, San
Francisco, New York, Boca Raton, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia
and Atlanta, is active in major litigations pending in federal and
state courts throughout the United States and has taken a leading

DEWEY & LEBOEUF: Said to Have Hired Bankruptcy Lawyer
-----------------------------------------------------
Noeleen Walder and Leigh Jones, writing for Reuters, report that
Dewey & LeBoeuf has hired Albert Togut, Esq., at Togut, Segal &
Segal LLP, according to two attorneys at other law firms who have
knowledge of the matter.

According to Reuters, one of the sources said Mr. Togut is working
with at least one member of the firm's new management team.

One source told Reuters Mr. Togut was tapped by fellow bankruptcy
lawyer Martin Bienenstock, Esq., who last month was appointed to
Dewey's new five-person office of the chairman.

Reuters says Mr. Togut did not respond to several messages seeking
comment.  The report notes a spokesman for Dewey, Angelo
Kakolyris, declined to comment, saying, "The firm does not comment
on speculation."

Reuters adds it is unclear when Mr. Togut was hired.  Reuters says
neither Mr. Bienenstock nor Richard Shutran, Esq., members of
Dewey's office of the chairman, responded to requests seeking
comment.

New York-based Dewey is a 950-lawyer firm, one of the biggest in
the United States.  It has lost some 70 partners, or 23% of them,
since the start of the year as it negotiates with creditors.

Dewey was formed by the 2007 merger of 250-attorney Dewey
Ballantine and 700-attorney LeBoeuf, Lamb, Greene & McRae.  At its
height in 2008, it had 1,450 attorneys, according to The National
Law Journal.

Reuters notes the hiring of Togut does not necessarily mean Dewey
is planning a bankruptcy filing.  For example, the firm could be
looking for legal help to renegotiate its debt.

Reuters relates one partner who recently left Dewey said the firm
could be preparing for a so-called prepackaged bankruptcy,
possibly involving a merger with another law firm.

The report notes Dewey is in the process of negotiating with its
lenders, including JPMorgan Chase and Citigroup.  According to the
report, a spokeswoman for Citi Private Bank referred all inquiries
to JPMorgan, which Citi identified as Dewey's primary lender.
JPMorgan declined comment.

Reuters also reports the firm's leaders said earlier this week
that the vast majority of the recent departures were part of its
plan to reduce its partner ranks to improve profitability.

$4 million first mortgage and a $4 million third mortgage. The
owner says the property is worth $9 million.  The petition shows
assets of $9 million with debt totaling $12.5 million. Unsecured
claims total $2.7 million.  The owner said it bought the property
"at the height of the market and fell behind on mortgage
payments."

EDGEN MURRAY: Files Amendment No.4 to Form S-1 Prospectus
---------------------------------------------------------
Edgen Group Inc. filed amendment No. 4 to its registration
statement on Form S-1 relating to an initial public offering of
shares of its Class A common stock.  Edgen Group Inc. is a newly
formed company that would serve as the holding company for the
business of Edgen Murray II, L.P., and its subsidiaries if the
offering is completed.

This registration statement disclosed certain preliminary
information related to the expected results of operations of Edgen
Murray II, L.P. and other financial data relating to Edgen Murray
II, L.P., and its equity method investment, Bourland & Leverich
Holdings LLC.

Edgen Murray estimates a net loss of between $3.25 million and
$4.25 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012.  The
Company estimates sales in the range of $270 million to $287
million for the first quarter.

in 2009.

The Company's balance sheet as of Dec. 31, 2011, showed
$551.05 million in total assets, $706.11 million in total

                           *     *     *

As reported by the TCR on April 11, 2011, Moody's Investors
Service lowered Edgen Murray II, L.P.'s probability of default
rating (PDR) to Caa2 from Caa1, its corporate family rating (CFR)
to Caa3 from Caa1 and the company's 12.25% senior secured notes to
Caa3 from Caa2.  The downgrade was prompted by Edgen Murray's
continuing weak performance even as many of its peers began to
benefit in 2010 from higher oil prices, a higher rig count for oil
drilling, and increased drilling in and production from
alternative shale plays.

In September 2010, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it
lowered its corporate credit rating on Edgen Murray II L.P. to 'B-
' from 'B'.  The rating outlook is stable.

"The downgrade reflects S&P's expectation that 2010 EBITDA will
likely be around $30 million, materially lower than its previous
expectation of about $55 million, due to ongoing weakness in the
company's Western Hemisphere segment as a result of lower capital
spending on projects in the region," said Standard & Poor's credit
analyst Sherwin Brandford.


ELPIDA MEMORY: U.S. Court Grants Protection From Creditors
----------------------------------------------------------
Peg Brickley at Dow Jones' Daily Bankruptcy Review reports that
Elpida Memory Inc. won U.S. bankruptcy court protection while it
is being courted by potential buyers in a Japanese restructuring
effort.

As reported in the March 21, 2012 edition of the TCR, Elpida
Memory Inc. sought the U.S. bankruptcy court's recognition of its
reorganization proceedings currently pending in Tokyo District
Court, Eight Civil Division.

Yuko Sakamoto, as foreign representative, says that ongoing
litigation in the U.S. will force Elpida to incur substantial
costs and divert significant monetary and personnel resources from
the Japan reorganization effort.  Elpida has been named as a
defendant or counter-claim defendant in a number of matters in
which it is alleged that Elpida products infringe certain patents.
The suits alleged that certain Elpida DRAM products infringe on
patents held by the complaining parties.  Elpida has also been
paying the cost of defense for non-debtor subsidiary Elpida USA
and certain of its customers.

Elpida is a party to numerous contracts with U.S. counterparties
and/or non-U.S. counterparties, including license agreements,
sublicense agreements and other agreements involving U.S. patents,
patent applications or intellectual property, some of which
contain provisions granting the counterparty a right to terminate
for various reasons, including Elpida's filing bankruptcy,
becoming a debtor under the Bankruptcy Code or becoming insolvent.

To ensure that the reorganization in Japan continues in a smooth
and stable manner, Elpida seeks provisional relief on
an emergency basis, pursuant to Sections 105 and 1519, to, among
other things, stay litigation pending against (i) Elpida and (ii)
its non-debtor subsidiary, Elpida USA, as well the down-stream
customers, to whom Elpida owes indemnification obligations.

Tokyo, Japan-based Elpida Memory Inc. sought  the U.S.
bankruptcy court's recognition of its reorganization proceedings
currently pending in Tokyo District Court, Eight Civil Division.

Yuko Sakamoto, as foreign representative, filed a Chapter 15
petition (Bankr. D. Del. Case No. 12-10947) for Elpida on
March 19, 2012.

Elpida Memory and its subsidiary, Akita Elpida Memory, Inc., filed
for corporate reorganization proceedings in Tokyo District Court
on Feb. 27, 2012.

The Tokyo District Court immediately rendered a temporary
restraining order to restrain creditors from demanding repayment
of debt or exercising their rights with respect to the company's
assets absent prior court order.

Atsushi Toki, Attorney-at-Law, has been appointed by the Tokyo
Court as Supervisor and Examiner in the case.

FASTECH SERVICES: Metal Workers Allowed $42K for Fringe Benefits
----------------------------------------------------------------
Chief Bankruptcy Judge Thomas L. Perkins granted the request filed
by the Sheet Metal Workers Local 218 for $42,342 in fringe
benefits as a chapter 11 administrative priority expense in the
Chapter 11 cases of FasTech Services, Inc.

Judge Perkins also ruled that the contributions due the employee
funds, plus interest that accrued before FasTech's case was
converted to Chapter 7 bankruptcy on June 10, 2011, are allowable
as chapter 11 administrative priority expenses, as follows:

  Fund                             Contributions   Interest
  ----                             -------------   --------
  Sheet Metal Workers' National
    Pension Fund                       $4,496.64    $200.27
  International Training Institute
    for the Sheet Metal and Air
    Conditioning Industry                 281.04      12.52
  National Energy Management
    Institute Committee                    70.24       3.14
  Sheet Metal Occupational
    Health Institute Trust                 46.84       2.08
  Sheet Metal Workers International
    Association Scholarship Fund           23.40       1.05
  National Stabilization Agreement
    of the Sheet Metal Industry         3,570.60     159.03

Judge Perkins denied the request by the funds for administrative
priority status for the liquidated damages due under the
collective bargaining agreements on account of the Debtor's
failure to pay the contributions.

Through R.J. Power Plumbing & Heating Company, one of its
subsidiaries, the Debtor employed union sheet metal workers
pursuant to certain collective bargaining agreements with Sheet
Metal Workers Local 218.  The Debtor took no action in the
bankruptcy case to reject or modify the CBAs, under section 1113

                          About First Data

Based in Atlanta, Georgia, First Data Corporation, with over
$10 billion of revenue for the 12 months ended June 30, 2010,
provides commerce and payment solutions for financial
institutions, merchants, and other organizations worldwide.

The Company reported a net loss of $336.10 million in 2011, a net
loss of $846.90 million in 2010, and a net loss of $1.01 billion
on $9.31 million in 2009.

The Company's balance sheet as of Dec. 31, 2011, showed
$40.27 billion in total assets, $36.80 billion in total
liabilities, and $3.40 billion in total equity.

                           *     *     *

The Company's carries a 'B3' corporate family rating, with a
stable outlook, from Moody's Investors Service, a 'B' corporate
credit rating, with stable outlook, from Standard & Poor's, and
a 'B' long-term issuer default rating from Fitch Ratings.

Standard & Poor's Ratings Services in December 2010 assigned its
'B-' issue rating with a '5' recovery rating to First Data Corp.'s
(B/Stable/--) $2 billion of 8.25% second-lien cash-pay notes due
2021, $1 billion $8.75% second-lien pay-in-kind-toggle notes due
2022, and $3 billion 12.625% unsecured cash-pay notes due 2021.
The '5' recovery rating indicates lenders can expect modest (10%-
30%) recovery in the event of payment default.  Under S&P's
default analysis, there is insufficient collateral to fully cover
First Data's first-lien debt.  As a result, the remaining value of
the company (generated by non-U.S. assets and not pledged) would
be shared pari passu among the uncovered portion of first-lien
debt, new second-lien debt, and new and existing unsecured debt.


FIRST SECURITY: Larry Mauldin Named Chairman and Director
---------------------------------------------------------
Larry D. Mauldin was appointed as Director and Chairman to the
Board of Directors of First Security Group, Inc., effective
April 16, 2012.  In addition, Mr. Mauldin is expected to be
appointed to serve on the Board of Directors of FSGBank and as
Chairman of FSGBank's Board, subject to the completion of the
regulatory application process.

Mr. Mauldin completed a 40-year banking career by retiring in
March 2007 as Chairman, President and CEO of SunTrust Bank of East
Tennessee, N.A., a subsidiary of SunTrust Banks, Inc., in
Knoxville, Tennessee.  Mr. Mauldin is currently the Chairman of
the Board of Covenant Health in Knoxville, TN, a nonprofit
corporation that is the parent company for an eight hospital
health care system, and Project GRAD, also in Knoxville, TN, a
nonprofit corporation that works closely with the Knox County
public school district to help improve academic success for over
7,500 children in 14 schools located in the heart of Knoxville.

"Larry has deep roots in East Tennessee along with a storied
career with SunTrust that will assist us as we continue to develop
FSGBank," said First Security CEO and President Michael Kramer.
"The addition of Larry supports a cornerstone belief of our new
corporate culture: accountability.  For the first time, the CEO
and Chairman roles have been separated, which we believe to be the
most effective leadership structure at this time to continue the
transformation of our culture."

"It is my honor and privilege to welcome Larry to the Board," said
Carol Jackson, Director of First Security.  "Over the past year,
steady but significant progress has been achieved in securing the
right talent at all levels of the organization.  The impact of a
chairman with Larry's experience and in-market presence cannot be
understated.  Instituting a non-executive Chairman will also
provide a direct line of accountability for Mike and our
management team, allowing them to focus on the Company's strategic
direction and day-to-day operations, while allowing the Chairman
to lead the Board in its fundamental role of providing advice to,
and independent oversight of, management."

Mr. Mauldin began his career in 1967 with the Trust Company of
Georgia and served as Chairman, President and CEO of two different
banking subsidiaries of the Trust Company of Georgia between 1980
and 1991 before becoming Chairman, President and CEO of Third
National Bank/SunTrust Bank of East Tennessee and serving in that
role for 13 years. During his tenure as CEO of SunTrust Bank of
East Tennessee, its assets increased from $400 million to $2.4
billion and became a deposit market share leader in the Knoxville
MSA.

"The vision and strategic objectives of FSG lead to a compelling
and attractive story," Mr. Mauldin said.  "I believe FSG
represents the best of both worlds in banking, having the size and
diversity to provide a wide-range of products and services, while
nimble enough to make decisions and changes in an effective and
efficient manner.  Additionally, the strong demographics of
Knoxville and Chattanooga make East Tennessee a natural region for
innovative and entrepreneurial small businesses that need a
community banking partner.  I consider it a privilege to join the
FSG team."

Mr. Mauldin will receive an annual retainer of $10,000 for his
services as Chairman of the Board and otherwise will receive
compensation for his services as director consistent with that of
the Company's other non-employee directors, including retainers,
board and committee fees, chairperson fees, and the eligibility to
receive stock-based awards and other compensation as may be paid
to the Company's directors from time to time.

                         About GenCorp Inc.

Rancho Cordova, Calif.-based GenCorp Inc. (NYSE: GY)
-- http://www.GenCorp.com/-- is a manufacturer of aerospace and
defense products and systems with a real estate segment that
includes activities related to the re-zoning, entitlement, sale,
and leasing of the Company's excess real estate assets.

The Company's balance sheet at Nov. 30, 2011, showed $939.50
million in total assets, $1.14 billion in total liabilities, $4.4
million in redeemable common stock and a $211.60 million total
shareholders' deficit.

                           *     *     *

Standard & Poor's in February 2011 has raised its corporate credit
rating on GenCorp Inc. to 'B' from 'B-'.  S&P also raised its
rating on the company's first-lien secured debt to 'BB-' from 'B+'
and on the subordinated debt to 'CCC+' from 'CCC'.  The recovery
rating on the first-lien secured debt remains unchanged at '1',
and the recovery rating on the subordinated debt remains unchanged
at '6'.  The outlook is stable.

"We are raising its ratings on GenCorp by one notch to reflect the
company's improved liquidity position," said Standard & Poor's
credit analyst Lisa Jenkins.  "The ratings on GenCorp reflect its
highly leveraged capital structure, weak financial performance,
limited diversity, and modest scale of operations compared with
competitors.  Offsetting these challenges to some extent is the
company's good niche positions in aerospace propulsion and solid
backlog.  S&P characterize GenCorp Inc.'s business profile as weak
and its financial profile as highly leveraged."

As reported by the TCR on May 24, 2011, Moody's Investors Service
upgraded the corporate family and probability of default ratings
of GenCorp Inc. to B1 from B2.  The upgrade reflects the Company's
steady improvement to operating results, as a leading niche
supplier of solid and liquid rocket propulsion systems to prime
defense contractors.  Operating margins have grown to above 11%
(inclusive of Moody's standard adjustments) in the most recent
twelve-month period, resulting from growth in defense programs
that GenCorp supplies (THAAD, Aegis, PAC-3) and good cost
controls.  GenCorp's funded backlog has grown steadily over
several years, and is now about 90% of sales.  The level of
backlog provides good forward revenue visibility and compares
favorably with other defense suppliers.

and Order available at http://is.gd/0bZiqofrom Leagle.com.

Mr. Lyons, a seafarer, alleged he was injured when he slipped and
fell on the deck of the yacht on which he was working.  He
contends that the cause was a design defect -- a slippery surface.
He sued the vessel's owner, who claimed against other defendants;
Mr. Lyons later added his own claims against the same third-party
defendants.  They include the manufacturer and the intermediate
seller of the yacht.

Jury trial will proceed against Rienzi, the original defendant,

that it is protected by insurance.  Jury selection will commence
on May 21, 2012 at 9:30 a.m.  Trial will begin the following day.

The Company's balance sheet at Dec. 31, 2011, showed $88.90
million in total assets, $29.76 million in total liabilities and
$59.14 million in total stockholders' equity.

Deloitte & Touche LLP, in Dallas, Texas, noted that the award
proposed by the court against the Company and the uncertainty
related to the ongoing litigation raises substantial doubt about
the Company's ability to continue as a going concern.

In one adversarial proceeding, a court issued a proposed findings
proposing that damages be awarded against the Company totaling
approximately $18,700,000 plus prejudgment and postjudgment
interest and attorney's fees as may be requested and awarded
pursuant to a subsequent motion.  As a result of the Proposed
Findings, the Company recorded a charge of $7,500,000 in its
statement of operations and its balance sheet as a noncash accrual
under Hallwood Energy matters - Litigation Reserve in the
Adversary Proceeding, in addition to the $3,201,000 that was
previously recorded in connection with the Equity Support
Agreement for a total reserve of $10,701,000 at Dec. 31, 2011, for
the Adversary Proceeding.

                        About Hardage Hotels

Hardage Hotels I, LLC, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy (Bankr.
W.D. Tex. Case No. 12-30443) on March 6, 2012.  Hardage is a hotel
and real estate development company headquartered in San Diego,
California.  Hardage operates seven hotels in seven states under
the brand of "Chase Suites".  The hotels are located in El Paso,
Texas; Overland Park, Kansas; Newark, California; Kansas City,
Missouri; Des Moines, Iowa; Lincoln, Nebraska; and Dublin, Ohio.

Hardage operates the hotels under the "Chase Suites" name pursuant
to franchise agreements with Hardage Hospitality, LLC.  The Debtor
has no employees -- all employees at the hotels are employed by
non-debtor Hardage Hospitality, which provides hotel management
services.

The Debtor has outstanding secured debt of $34.2 million plus
interest.  The lenders are OneWest Bank, FSB; California First
National Bank, N.A., and Security Bank of Kansas City.  OneWest
is the lender under a $5.74 million Dublin loan agreement, a
$5.3 million Lincoln loan agreement, and an $11.5 million El Paso
loan agreement.

Hardage was forced to file for bankruptcy when Hardage reached an
out-of-court restructuring of its debts with OneWest and then
OneWest reneged on its commitment.  In September 2010, OneWest
filed a collection against Hardage and sought the appointment of a
receiver over the El Paso property.  A receivership order was
entered but was vacated, although Hardage was ordered to make
payments to OneWest.  The parties then entered into a series of
tolling agreements, under which Hardage paid OneWest $700,000 so
that OneWest would not pursue any further action.  Following
negotiations, the parties signed a "final term sheet" on a
restructuring on Dec. 2, 2011.

But, according to the Debtor, OneWest reneged on the agreement.
In November, OneWest sought foreclosure of, and a receiver for,
the Dublin and El Paso properties.

The Debtor on March 5, 2012, initiated a lawsuit against OneWest
in the Superior Court of the State of California for the County of
Los Angeles, Central District.  The suit alleges several causes of
action, including fraud and breach of contract.

Judge H. Christopher Mott presides over the Chapter 11 case.  The
Debtor has tapped Haynes and Boone LLP as attorneys, and
Transitional Finance Partners LLC as financial advisor.

In its petition, the Debtor estimated $10 million to $50 million
in assets and $50 million to $100 million in debts.  The petition
was signed by Samuel A. Hardage, president.

No trustee or examiner has been requested or appointed in this
Chapter 11 case.

HAWKER BEECHCRAFT: Has Forbearance Until June, Gets $120MM Loan
---------------------------------------------------------------
Hawker Beechcraft, Inc., on March 27, 2012, entered into a
forbearance agreement with Credit Suisse AG, Cayman Islands
Branch, as administrative agent and collateral agent, and certain
lenders.  The agreement will provide the company with
approximately $120 million of additional liquidity through an
incremental term loan facility under its existing credit facility.
The company intends to use the proceeds of this loan to fund its
ongoing operations as Hawker Beechcraft continues working with its
lenders toward a comprehensive recapitalization.  As part of the
agreement, lenders currently holding approximately 70 percent of
Hawker Beechcraft bank debt have agreed to defer the company's
obligation to make certain interest payments on the company's
senior secured revolving and term loans when due, and have granted
the company relief from certain existing loan covenants.  This
forbearance agreement is scheduled to expire on June 29, 2012.

Robert S. (Steve) Miller, CEO of Hawker Beechcraft, Inc., said,
"Like others in the industry, Hawker Beechcraft has been impacted
by the prolonged weakness in our markets.  In the last three years
the company has made aggressive transformational changes in all
operational functions.  While these steps have been effective, the
company is operating with a debt load that is restricting its
ability to succeed and fully execute on its strategy.  We believe
this agreement will stabilize the company's current financial
position and ensure Hawker Beechcraft continues manufacturing the
best airplanes for our customers and providing first-class service
and support.  At the same time, the agreement provides Hawker
Beechcraft and its lenders with additional time and flexibility to
work together to recapitalize the company and better position
Hawker Beechcraft for the future.  We believe this loan
demonstrates confidence in the long-term value of the company."

HAWKER BEECHCRAFT: Delays Form 10-K for 2011 for Negotiations
-------------------------------------------------------------
Hawker Beechcraft Acquisition Company, LLC, and Hawker Beechcraft
Notes Company were unable to file the annual report on Form 10-K
for the year ended Dec. 31, 2011, by the prescribed filing
deadline (March 30, 2012) without unreasonable effort and expense
because they have devoted and continue to devote substantial
resources to negotiations with their senior lenders and other
creditors in light of ongoing adverse economic and industry
conditions and because of difficulties and delays in producing
financial information resulting from the Company's recent
implementation of an upgraded enterprise resource planning system.
The Company expects to complete and file the Form 10-K on or
before April 16, 2012.

The Company has entered into a forbearance agreement and third
amendment to its credit agreement with its secured lenders to,
among other things, provide for an incremental term loan facility
and an agreement by lenders holding approximately 70% of the
borrowings under the credit agreement to forbear from exercising
certain rights as a result of the Company's failure to meet
certain financial covenants and to defer certain interest payments
under the credit agreement until June 29, 2012.

The Company's senior management, finance, and legal teams have
spent and are continuing to spend a significant amount of time
negotiating with the Company's secured lenders and other key
constituents regarding a comprehensive recapitalization of the
Company.  The Company can provide no assurances that it will be
able to reach agreement regarding any comprehensive
recapitalization or that the Company will be able to effect such a
recapitalization.

HCSB FINANCIAL: Incurs $256,000 Net Loss in First Quarter
---------------------------------------------------------
HCSB Financial Corporation posted a net loss of $256,000 for the
quarter ended March 31, 2012, compared to losses of $4.10 million
in the fourth quarter of 2011 and $7.68 million in the first
quarter of 2011.

Excluding expenses related to outstanding debt held by the holding
company, Horry County State Bank reported operating income of
$63,000 in the first quarter of 2012, reflecting its first
quarterly profit since early 2010 as core fundamentals drove gains
in net interest margin and a reduction in interest expense.
Credit trends in net charge-offs and loans 30-to-89 days past due
also showed improvement.  Provisions for loan losses were $1.31
million for the quarter ended March 31, 2012, significantly less
than past quarters.

"We still have a ways to go, but it's gratifying to know that we
are beginning to see positive trends in core performance and
credit quality, particularly at the bank level," said President
and CEO Jimmy Clarkson.  "Our bank has worked extremely hard the
past several quarters at improving our balance sheet and dealing
with problem loans."

"A bank must show core earnings if it is going to thrive,"
Clarkson said.  "We still have our challenges, but as long as our
fundamentals continue to drive solid operating results, we'll
continue to improve our overall balance sheet.  We believe that we
acknowledged our problems early, took prompt, aggressive action to
address them, and have maintained regular communications with our
regulators which has allowed us to develop a good relationship
with our regulators."

Horry County State Bank, currently under a written agreement with
federal and state regulators to improve its capital strength and
credit quality, reported Tier 1 capital of 2.92% of total risk-
based assets at March 31, 2012, fractionally better than the
previous quarter's Tier 1 ratio of 2.90% in the fourth quarter of
2011.  HCSB's capital ratio is currently classified as
"significantly undercapitalized," the third of four categories in
which capital levels are rated by regulators.  Below 2% is
"critically undercapitalized."  A capital ratio of 4% or better is
"adequately capitalized," 5% or better "well-capitalized."

Over the next several months, HCSB will seek to raise additional
capital.  In a recent Form 10-K filing with the SEC, management
noted the challenges it faces in raising additional capital in the
current economic environment. Even if the bank struggles to find
capital, Clarkson believes the bank has gained enough traction to
work through its problems.

"I honestly believe, based on our current trends, that if we do
not raise any capital at all, the bank will survive and will not
fall below the critical 2% level," Clarkson said.  "We believe
that we are past the vast majority of our problems and that the
substantial reduction in our 30-to-89 day past due loans to more
normal levels during the past four months indicates that loan
defaults have begun to decline considerably."

In 2011, HCSB set aside $25.27 million in loan loss provisions
after adding $23.08 million the previous year for a combined
$48.35 million in provisions for loan losses over the past two
years.  The bank, which budgeted only $5.2 million in loan loss
provisions for 2012, is ahead of budget for the year.  One of the
key factors that the bank uses to determine its loan loss
provision is its 30-to-89 day past due numbers, generally the
first sign of problem loans on the horizon.  HCSB's 30-to-89
delinquency ratio to total loans averaged 1.73% in the first
quarter of 2012 compared to an average 3.60% in the fourth quarter
of 2011.  Net loan charge-offs decreased to $1.8 million for the
quarter ended March 31, 2012, compared to $3.60 million for the
fourth quarter of 2011 and $6.97 million for the first quarter of
March 31, 2011.

                       About HCSB Financial

Loris, South Carolina-based HCSB Financial Corporation was
incorporated on June 10, 1999, to become a holding company for
Horry County State Bank.  The Bank is a state chartered bank which
commenced operations on Jan. 4, 1988.  From its 13 branch
locations, the Bank offers a full range of deposit services,
including checking accounts, savings accounts, certificates of
deposit, money market accounts, and IRAs, as well as a broad range
of non-deposit investment services.  During the third quarter of
2011, the Bank closed its Covenant Towers branch located at Myrtle
Beach.  All deposits were transferred to the Bank's Myrtle Beach
branch and the Bank does not expect any disruption of service in
that market for its customers.

HCSB reported a net loss of $29.01 million in 2011, compared with
a net loss of $17.27 million in 2010.

The Company's balance sheet at Dec. 31, 2011, showed
$535.69 million in total assets, $540.91 million in total
liabilities and a $5.21 million total shareholders' deficit.

For 2011, Elliott Davis, LLC, in Columbia, South Carolina,
expressed substantial doubt about the Company's ability to
continue as a going concern.  The independent auditors noted that
the Company has suffered recurring losses that have eroded
regulatory capital ratios and the Company's wholly owned
subsidiary, Horry County State Bank, is under a regulatory Consent
Order with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) that
requires, among other provisions, capital ratios to be maintained
at certain levels.  As of Dec. 31, 2011, the Company is considered
significantly undercapitalized based on their regulatory capital
levels.

                           Consent Order

On Feb. 10, 2011, the Bank entered into the Consent Order with the
FDIC and the State Board.   The Consent Order conveys specific
actions needed to address the Bank's current financial condition,
primarily related to capital planning, liquidity/funds management,
policy and planning issues, management oversight, loan
concentrations and classifications, and non-performing loans.

The Company believes it is currently in substantial compliance
with the Consent Order except for the requirement to achieve and
maintain, within 150 days from the effective date of the Consent
Order, Total Risk Based capital at least equal to 10% of risk-
weighted assets and Tier 1 capital at least equal to 8% of total
assets.

At Sept. 30, 2011, the Bank was categorized as "significantly
undercapitalized."

Pursuant to the requirements under the Consent Order, the Company
submitted its capital plan to the FDIC for review.  The FDIC has
directed the Company to revise the capital plan and, in addition,
to develop a capital restoration plan, which the Company has
resubmitted.


HOSTESS BRANDS: Wins Extension of Exclusivity Periods
-----------------------------------------------------
Jamie Mason, writing for The Deal Pipeline, reports that
a Hostess Brands spokesman said Judge Robert D. Drain of the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York in White
Plains approved a 90-day extension of Hostess Brands' exclusive
right to file a plan and solicit acceptances to it, to Aug. 8 and
Oct. 7, respectively.

According to the Deal Pipeline, the company spokesman also said a
trial began Tuesday on the Company's union issues and extended
into Thursday, with the unions calling witnesses to testify
Thursday.  Before the exclusivity extension was granted, Hostess
had until May 10 to file a plan and until July 9 to solicit votes.
Hostess doesn't expect a decision on its request to terminate the
current collective bargaining agreement before its exclusivity was
set to run out.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on April 9, Hostess
Brands seek an order (a) extending the period during which the
Debtors have the exclusive right to file a chapter 11 plan or
plans by 90 days, through and including Aug. 8, 2012; and (b)
extending the period during which the Debtors have the exclusive
right to solicit acceptances of the Plan through and including
Oct. 7, 2012, or approximately 60 days after the expiration of the
Exclusive Filing Period, as extended.

The Debtors said they are focused on implementing a restructuring
that maximizes value for stakeholders and ensures a viable company
post-emergence.  Since the Petition Date, the Debtors have taken a
number of critical steps to promote their reorganization.

The Debtors said they have developed a comprehensive turnaround
plan, which requires the Debtors, among other things, to modify
certain aspects of their collective bargaining agreements,
including the Debtors' obligations with respect to health and
welfare plans, work rules and multi-employer pension plans.  Other
features of the Turnaround Plan are not labor related, such as
modernizing the Debtors' vehicle fleet, restructuring the Debtors'
retail outlet stores, reducing selling, general and administrative
costs and increasing the efficiency of various operational
activities.

The official committee of unsecured creditors has objected to the
extension request, saying Hostess is facing a nationwide strike
because there isn't agreement with the Teamsters union on a
concessionary contract.  The Teamsters vowed to strike if an
agreement isn't consensual.

The Committee also wants the bankruptcy judge to bar Hostess from
enforcing a lockup agreement where potential investors received
confidential information in return for pledging not to
negotiate with anyone else.  The committee contends that Hostess
agreed to have no lockup agreement in return for the unions'
agreement not to support only one prospective investor.  The
committee contends that a lockup agreement is not in the ordinary
course of business and isn't enforceable without court approval.

Hostess previously said that 14 potential investors signed
confidentiality agreements prior to the Feb. 27 deadline for
submitting initial offers. The second round of bids is due by
May 7.

The Committee also objects to so-called "babysitting" provision in
the confidentiality agreements that the Debtor required potential
investors to sign to gain access to company information to
formulate expressions of interest.  That provision bars potential
investors from discussing their bids directly with the Debtors'
unions without the involvement of the Debtors.  The
Committee and its advisors believed that this would limit the
ability of potential investors to properly formulate expressions
of interest.

Christopher J. Brown -- browne@blackstone.com -- Managing Director
in Blackstone's Restructuring and Reorganization Advisory Group,
the Committee's advisor, disclosed in court papers that early
February 2012, the Debtors agreed that, after first round bids had
been received, the unions could have meetings with potential
investors without Perella Weinberg, the Debtors' advisors, being
present.  The precise timing of the elimination of the
"babysitting" restriction was left to be negotiated.

After the first round bids had been submitted, negotiations began
again.  These negotiations took place over several weeks. During
this time, Mr. Brown said he spoke and e-mailed numerous times
with Joshua Scherer at Perella -- jscherer@pwpartners.com --
concerning the confidentiality agreement.  In early March, the
Debtors proposed to release potential investors that had already
signed confidentiality agreements from the "babysitting"
provision, provided that both the investors and the unions commit
in writing not to "lock up" with any bidder.

The Committee subsequently agreed to these terms.  After the
panel's counsel had reviewed the revised confidentiality
agreement, Mr. Brown said he thought the form of the agreement
was settled.  He added that at no time did Mr. Scherer or any
other representative of the Debtors inform him that the Debtors
intended to or had in fact further modified the form of
confidentiality agreement to provide that in addition to agreeing
not to lock up with any union, the potential investor would also
be bound not to "propose a potential investment or other
transaction, including a chapter 11 plan, that is not fully
supported by the Company."

"I would have thought it inappropriate to include such a provision
because it limits the ability of parties in interest other than
the Debtor to negotiate with potential financing sources in
connection with the formulation of a chapter 11 plan(s) including
after exclusivity has terminated," Mr. Brown said.  "I was
surprised to learn that the Debtors had a potential investor sign
a confidentiality agreement containing such a provision."

Mr. Brown also added that although the case Milestones contained
in the Final DIP Order require the Debtors to file a proposed plan
by June 1, 2012 and despite requesting them from the Debtors, he
has not received a draft plan, a term sheet for such a plan, or
even a proposed post-reorganization capital structure from the
Debtors.

                      About Hostess Brands

Founded in 1930, Irving, Texas-based Hostess Brands Inc., is known
for iconic brands such as Butternut, Ding Dongs, Dolly Madison,
Drake's, Home Pride, Ho Hos, Hostess, Merita, Nature's Pride,
Twinkies and Wonder.  Hostess has 36 bakeries, 565 distribution
centers and 570 outlets in 49 states.

Hostess filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection early morning
on Jan. 11, 2011 (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case Nos. 12-22051 through
12-22056) in White Plains, New York.  Debtor-affiliates that filed
separate Chapter 11 petition are IBC Sales Corporation, IBC
Trucking LLC, IBC Services LLC, Interstate Brands Corporation, and
MCF Legacy Inc.  Hostess Brands disclosed assets of $982 million
and liabilities of $1.43 billion as of Dec. 10, 2011.  Debt
includes $860 million on four loan agreements.  Trade suppliers
are owed as much as $60 million.

The bankruptcy filing was made two years after predecessors
Interstate Bakeries Corp. and its affiliates emerged from
bankruptcy (Bankr. W.D. Mo. Case No. 04-45814).  Ripplewood
Holding LLC, after providing $130 million to finance the plan,
obtained control of IBC's business following the prior
reorganization.

Hostess Brands is privately held.  The new owners pursued new
Chapter 11 cases to escape from what they called "uncompetitive
and unsustainable" union contracts, pension plans, and health
benefit programs.

In 2011, Hostess retained Houlihan Lokey to explore sales of its
smaller assets and individual brands.  Houlihan Lokey oversaw the
sale of Mrs. Cubbison's to Sugar Foods Corporation for
$12 million, but was unable to sell any of Hostess' core assets.
Judge Robert D. Drain oversees the case.  Hostess has hired Jones
Day as bankruptcy counsel; Stinson Morrison Hecker LLP as general
corporate counsel and conflicts counsel; Perella Weinberg Partners
LP as investment bankers, FTI Consulting, Inc. to provide an
interim treasurer and additional personnel for the Debtors, and
Kurtzman Carson Consultants LLC as administrative agent.

Matthew Feldman, Esq., at Willkie Farr & Gallagher, and Harry
Wilson, the head of turnaround and restructuring firm MAEVA
Advisors, are representing the Teamsters union.

Attorneys for The Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain
Millers International Union and Bakery & Confectionery Union &
Industry International Pension Fund are Jeffrey R. Freund, Esq.,
at Bredhoff & Kaiser, P.L.L.C.; and Ancela R. Nastasi, Esq., David
A. Rosenzweig, Esq., and Camisha L. Simmons, Esq., at Fulbright &
Jaworski L.L.P.

The IBT and BCT collectively employ roughly 92% of the Debtors'
union workforce.  The remaining 8% of the Debtors' union workforce
is represented by 10 other unions.

An official committee of unsecured creditors has been appointed in
the case.  The committee selected New York law firm Kramer Levin
Naftalis & Frankel LLP as its counsel. Tom Mayer and Ken Eckstein
head the legal team for the committee.

other things, the scheduling of any section 1113 or 1114 motion

confer.  The parties in attendance agreed to modify the Prior
Scheduling Orders with respect to the 1113/1114 Process Relating
to the Other Unions.

The Debtors now have until April 23 to file and serve their
motions under sections 1113 and 1114 with respect to the Other
Unions.  Responses or objections to the Other Unions 1113/1114
Motions are due May 11.

The parties will confer at mutually convenient times to consider

and the possibilities for a prompt settlement or resolution of
these issues.

HOTI ENTERPRISES: Taps Carl Person as Litigation Counsel
--------------------------------------------------------
Hoti Enterprises, L.P., and Hoti Realty seek permission from the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York to
employ Carl Person, Esq., as special state court litigation
counsel, nunc pro tunc to June 2, 2011, in concerning a pending
foreclosure proceeding.

GECMC 2007-C1 Burnett Street, LLC, has asserted a first mortgage
interest against the Debtors' two-story residential building, and
the land upon which the building is situated in New York, securing
an indebtedness purportedly owed to it by the Debtors totaling
$40,733,874.79 plus accruing fees, expenses and interest.  In
February 2009, GECMC commenced a foreclosure proceeding concerning
its alleged interest in the property in the Supreme Court of the
State of New York, County of Kings.  In March 2009 Barbara Odwak,
Esq., was appointed as receiver of the property.  In June 2011,
Mr. Person was retained by Hoti Enterprises to represent it in the
foreclosure proceeding and had received $5,000 retainer from
Dedvukaj Construction, Inc.  Since then Mr. Person has been paid
$6,500 from Dedvukaj.  In January 2011, the automatic stay was
modified to permit the foreclosure proceeding to proceed to a
determination.

The Debtors' general bankruptcy counsel, Pick & Zabicki LLP,
doesn't regularly handle real property foreclosure proceedings
and, thus, doesn't believe that it can adequately represent the
Debtors' interests with regard to specialized legal and procedural
issues presented in the foreclosure proceeding.  Thus, the
Debtors' require the assistance of special litigation counsel.

Mr. Person will be compensated $275 per hour for his services.  He
has an associate lawyer on staff who currently bills at $175 per
hour.

To the best of the Debtors' knowledge, Mr. Person does not
represent or hold any interest adverse to Debtor, its estate,
creditors, equity security holders, or affiliates in the matters
upon which Mr. Person is to be engaged, and is a "disinterested
person" within the meaning of section 101(14) of the Bankruptcy
Code, as modified by section 1107(b) of the Bankruptcy Code, and
as required by section 327(a) of the Bankruptcy Code.

owning and operating a management company that managed the
apartment complex.

Hoti filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection (Bankr. S.D.N.Y.
Case No. 10-24129) on Oct. 12, 2010.  Hoti Enterprises estimated
its assets and debts at $10 million to $50 million.  Pick &
Zabicki LLP serves as the Debtor's bankruptcy counsel.

A receiver of rents was appointed against Hoti Enterprises pre-
bankruptcy pursuant to a foreclosure proceeding commenced by GECMC
2007-C-1 Burnett Street, Hoti's mortgagee and largest secured
creditor.

No Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors has been appointed in
the case.


HOTI ENTERPRISES: Can Hire Pic & Zabicki as Bankruptcy Counsel
--------------------------------------------------------------
Hoti Enterprises, L.P., and Hoti Realty sought and obtained
permission from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern
District of New York to employ Pick & Zabicki LLP as their counsel
in substitution for Dwyer & Associates, LLC, nunc pro tunc to
Jan. 26, 2012.

In December 2010, the Debtors were authorized to retain Rattet,
Pasternak & Gordon-Oliver as general bankruptcy counsel in
connection with their Chapter 11 case.  On April 14, 2011, the
Court granted RP&G-O's motion to withdraw as counsel.  On Feb. 12,
2011, D&A filed an application to be employed as substitute
counsel to the Debtors.  No order was signed by the Court
authorizing their retention.

The Debtors contacted P&Z and had requested P&Z's assistance with
regard to the case and requested that P&Z agree to serve as
substitute general bankruptcy counsel for D&A.

P&Z received an initial retainer in the sum of $12,500 in
connection with P&Z's fees and expenses associated with P&Z's
representation of the Debtors in their Chapter 11 proceeding.  The
retainer amount was paid by Dedvukaj Construction, an entity owned
and controlled by Mr. Dedvukaj, the operating member of Hoti
Enterprises and President of Management.  Dedvukaj Construction
will pay an additional $7,500 by Feb. 15, 2012, for a total
retainer of $20,000.

P&Z will be retained by the Debtors as their counsel and will be
paid these hourly rates:

           Partners                $425
           Associates              $250
           Paraprofessionals       $125

Douglas J. Pick, a member at P&Z, assured the Court that the firm
does not represent or hold any interest adverse to Debtor, its
estate, creditors, equity security holders, or affiliates in the
matters upon which the firm is to be engaged, and is a
"disinterested person" within the meaning of section 101(14) of
the Bankruptcy Code, as modified by Section 1107(b) of the

by the Compensation Committee, as administrator of the 2012 Stock
Incentive Plan.  As previously determined by the Company's Board
of Directors, no new awards will be granted under the 2008 Plan

Plan will remain outstanding in accordance with their existing
terms.

                    About Hovnanian Enterprises

Red Bank, New Jersey-based Hovnanian Enterprises, Inc. (NYSE: HOV)
-- http://www.khov.com/-- founded in 1959 by Kevork S. Hovnanian,
is one of the nation's largest homebuilders with operations in
Arizona, California, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois,
Kentucky, Maryland, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, North
Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, Virginia and
West Virginia.  The Company's homes are marketed and sold under
the trade names K. Hovnanian Homes, Matzel & Mumford, Brighton
Homes, Parkwood Builders, Town & Country Homes, Oster Homes and
CraftBuilt Homes.  As the developer of K. Hovnanian's Four Seasons
communities, the Company is also one of the nation's largest
builders of active adult homes.

The Company reported a net loss of $286.08 million on
$1.13 billion of total revenue for the fiscal year ended Oct. 31,
2011, compared with net income of $2.58 million on $1.37 billion
of total revenues during the prior year.

The Company's balance sheet at Jan. 31, 2012, showed $1.50 billion
in total assets, $2.01 billion in total liabilities, and a
$513.78 million total deficit.

                           *     *     *

As reported by the TCR on Nov. 4, 2011, Fitch Ratings has lowered
the Issuer Default Rating (IDR) of Hovnanian Enterprises, Inc.,
(NYSE: HOV) to Restricted Default (RD) from 'CCC'.  The downgrade
reflects Fitch's view that the debt exchange of certain of
Hovnanian's existing senior unsecured notes for new senior secured
notes is a distressed debt exchange under Fitch's 'Distressed Debt
Exchange Criteria', published Aug. 12, 2011.  Fitch anticipates
adjusting the company's IDR to the appropriate level to reflect
the new capital structure within the next 14 days.

In the Nov. 7, 2011, edition of the TCR, Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services raised its corporate credit rating on Hovnanian
Enterprises Inc. (Hovnanian) to 'CCC-' from 'SD' (selective
default).  "We also raised our ratings on the company's 10.625%
senior secured notes due 2016 to 'CCC-' from 'CC' and senior
unsecured notes to 'CC' from 'D'. The '3' recovery rating on the
senior secured notes and the '6' recovery rating on the senior
unsecured notes remain unchanged," S&P stated.

"These rating actions follow our reassessment of Hovnanian's
business and financial risk profile following the completion of
the company's debt exchange offer, in which the company exchanged
$195 million of its seven series of senior unsecured notes for
$141.8 million 5% senior secured notes due 2021 and $53.2 million
2% senior secured notes due 2021," said credit analyst George
Skoufis. "Our rating on Hovnanian reflects the company's highly
leveraged financial risk profile, a less-than-adequate liquidity
position, and very weak credit metrics."

As reported by the TCR on Sept. 13, 2011, Moody's Investors
Service downgraded the corporate family and probability of default
ratings of Hovnanian Enterprises, Inc. to Caa2 from Caa1.  The
downgrade reflects Hovnanian's continued operating losses,
weak gross margins, very high homebuilding debt leverage, and
Moody's expectation that the weakness in year-over-year revenues,
deliveries, and net new contracts experienced by the company will
continue for the next one to two years.  In addition, the
downgrades acknowledge that Hovnanian's cash balance is weakening
and cash flow generation is negative as it pursues new land
opportunities, which represented about $300 million of investment
over the first nine months of fiscal 2011.


HOVNANIAN ENTERPRISES: To Offer 25 Million Class A Common Shares
----------------------------------------------------------------
Hovnanian Enterprises, Inc., has commenced a registered
underwritten public offering of Class A Common Stock.  The
offering is anticipated to consist of the issuance of 25,000,000
shares of the Company's Class A Common Stock.  In addition, the
Company intends to grant the underwriters a 30-day option to
purchase up to an additional 15% of the shares of Class A Common
Stock sold to cover over-allotments.

Citigroup, Credit Suisse and J.P. Morgan are serving as the joint
book-running managers for the Class A Common Stock offering.

The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the offering to
purchase certain of the Company's senior unsecured notes in a
private transaction and for general corporate purposes, including
the refinancing, repurchase or repayment of indebtedness, working
capital needs, capital expenditures and expansion of the business.

The shares of Class A Common Stock will be issued pursuant to an
effective registration statement previously filed with the
Securities and Exchange Commission on Form S-3 and available for
review on the Securities and Exchange Commission's Web site at

HUB INTERNATIONAL: S&P Affirms 'B' Counterparty Credit Ratings
--------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services has affirmed its 'B'
counterparty credit rating on HUB International Ltd. (HUB). The
outlook is stable.

"At the same time, we assigned our 'B+' issue-level rating (one
notch higher than our 'B' counterparty credit rating on HUB) to
the company's planned senior secured term loans, consisting of a
$731 million term loan B at LIBOR plus 450 basis points (bps) due
June 2017, a $196 million incremental term loan B at LIBOR plus
475 bps due December 2017, and $100 million U.S. revolver at LIBOR
plus 450 bps due June 2016 (the company is also amending its
unrated Canadian revolver to be due in 2016 at the same pricing).
We have assigned the debt a recovery rating of '2', indicating our
expectation for a substantial (70%-90%) recovery for lenders in
the event of a payment default," S&P said.

"We also revised our recovery rating on HUB's existing senior
secured credit facilities to '2', indicating our expectation for a
substantial (70%-90%) recovery for lenders in the event of a
payment default, from '3' and raised our issue ratings on this
debt to 'B+' from 'B' in accordance with our notching criteria for
recovery ratings. HUB's existing senior secured facilities consist
of a $731 million term loan B at LIBOR plus 250 basis points (bps)
due June 2014, a $196 million incremental term loan B at LIBOR
plus 475 bps due June 2014, and $100 million U.S. revolver at
LIBOR plus 250 bps due June 2013 (the company also has an unrated
senior secured Canadian revolver at LIBOR plus 475 due June
2014)," S&P said.

"Lastly, we affirmed our 'CCC+' senior unsecured debt rating to
the company's unsecured facilities. The unsecured recovery rating
is '6', indicating our expectation for a negligible (0%-10%)
recovery for lenders in the event of a payment default," S&P said.

"The counterparty credit rating affirmation on HUB reflects the
fact that the company's total debt levels will remain unchanged
following the proposed debt offerings, because the planned senior
secured term loan and revolving credit facilities are extensions
and repricings of HUB's existing senior secured facilities of the
same dollar amount," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Julie
Herman. "Of note, the company is proposing to amend the entire
amounts of its senior secured facilities -- however, the amounts
that are unextended by lenders under the proposed transaction will
remain outstanding under the existing respective facilities -- the
extended term loans will rank pari passu with the existing senior
secured credit facilities and be subject to the same financial
covenant maintenance performance tests."

"While total debt levels will remain unchanged, the proposed
transaction does qualitatively improve HUB's financial leverage by
extending part of its 2013 and 2014 maturities by another two to
three years. Offsetting this benefit, the company's debt servicing
costs will increase moderately as a result of the transaction (by
about 12% annually if the entire proposed loan amounts are
extended, and excluding the effect of the company's interest rate
swaps)," S&P said.

"The affirmation also reflects our view that HUB has continued to
meet our performance expectations over this past year. Standard &
Poor's adjusted EBITDA grew considerably to $254 million in 2011
from $226 million in 2010, stemming from positive commission and
fee organic revenue growth of 2.1%, profitable acquisition-related
earnings, and sustained margins. Accordingly, despite slightly
higher debt levels in 2011 (the company tapped into about $97
million of its U.S. and Canadian revolvers in 2011), the company
was able to demonstrate slight improvement in its credit
fundamentals in 2011 with financial leverage and EBITDA fixed-
charge coverage of 6.9x and 1.8x compared with 7.4x and 1.5x in
2010. Moreover, we expect HUB's credit metrics to continue to
improve modestly in 2012, since we believe the company will be
able to offset its moderately higher debt servicing costs by
maintaining favorable organic and inorganic growth trends during
the year," S&P said.

"Our revised senior secured recovery rating of '2' and resultant
rating upgrade on HUB's senior secured credit facilities to 'B+'
reflects our reevaluation of the company's enterprise value in our
simulated default scenario. We have increased our EBITDA multiple
to value the company due to our belief that improving insurance
pricing and economic fundamentals will benefit HUB's market
valuation if the company were to reorganize," S&P said.

"The counterparty credit rating on HUB reflects the company's weak
credit protection measures, low-quality balance sheet, and the
execution risk related to its debt-funded acquisition strategy.
Somewhat offsetting these weaknesses are HUB's success in
enhancing its competitive position through its acquisition
strategy, its good earnings diversification within the brokerage
arena, and a consistent history of favorable operating results and
margins relative to its peers," S&P said.

"We expect that HUB's organic revenue growth trend will continue
to improve modestly in 2012--in the positive low-single-digit
area--stemming from continued stabilizing pricing and exposure
trends in the company's markets and its implementation of
successful sales strategies. We believe EBITDA margins will likely
remain favorable relative to rated peers, at near 30%, as it
continues to pursue strategic initiatives to enhance operational
efficiencies. Further, we expect HUB to make acquisitions that
will add at least $80 million in revenue in 2012 (on an annualized
revenue basis), targeting U.S., Canadian, and possibly other
international opportunities," S&P said.

"We also expect credit metrics to continue to improve modestly in
2012, because we believe HUB will be able to offset moderately
higher debt servicing costs (arising from the proposed
transaction) through earnings growth (both organic and inorganic).
Specifically, we expect debt to last-12-month EBITDA of less than
7x and EBITDA fixed-charge coverage of 1.8x-2.2x for full-year
2012. We believe HUB should also generate healthy positive cash
flows from operations, maintain a cushion of unrestricted cash of
at least $50 million, and remain comfortably in compliance with
its restrictive covenants," S&P said.

"We could lower the ratings over the next 12 months if HUB doesn't
meet our performance expectations, is not disciplined or
successful in its acquisition strategy, or displays more-
aggressive financial management," Ms. Herman continued. "On the
other hand, if the company's performance significantly exceeds our
expectations, we would consider raising the rating. The company
could demonstrate this if it exhibits leverage of 5x or below and
EBITDA interest coverage of 3x or above."


INFOR ENTERPRISE: S&P Rates Corporate Credit 'B'; Outlook Stable
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its 'B' corporate
credit rating to Infor Enterprise Applications Ltd. (Infor)
following the merger of GGC Software Holdings LLC (a/k/a Lawson
Software Inc.) and Infor Global Holdings Solutions Ltd. The rating
outlook is stable.

"We are also assigning our 'B+' issue-level rating and '2'
recovery rating to Lawson's (a subsidiary of Infor Enterprise
Applications) $3.5 billion senior secured term loans, consisting
of a $3.1 billion six-year term loan and a $400 million four-and-
a-half-year term loan," S&P said.

"In addition, we assigned our 'B-' rating and '5' recovery rating
to Lawson's $1.15 billion seven-year senior unsecured notes.
Lawson's existing $560 million senior unsecured notes (currently
rated 'B-' with a '5' recovery rating) will remain outstanding,"
S&P said.

"The new entity used the newly issued debt, along with
approximately $550 million of new sponsor equity, $213 million
cash on hand, $375 million of amended & extended Infor HoldCo
payment-in-kind (PIK) notes, and rolled equity from Infor and
Lawson shareholders, to merge the two companies and to refinance
existing debt," S&P said.

"Our corporate credit rating on Infor reflects the company's
highly leveraged capital structure, with pro forma debt to EBITDA
in the high-6x area," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Philip
Schrank. "We view the combination of enterprise software and
services providers Infor and Lawson as possessing a 'fair'
business risk profile, characterized by a significant recurring
revenue base, stable margins, and recognized product strength, but
also a second-tier position in the overall enterprise resource
planning (ERP) market."

"The outlook is stable, reflecting the company's recurring revenue
base and expectation of modest revenue growth with stable margins.
Given Infor's highly leveraged financial profile and our
expectations for modest de-leveraging over the next 12 months, we
are unlikely to raise the rating over this timeframe," S&P said.

"If EBITDA margins compress due to competitive pressures or if
operational integration missteps cause its financial covenant
cushion to drop below the 15% area, we could lower the rating,"
S&P said.


INTELLICELL BIOSCIENCES: To Address FDA Warning Letter
------------------------------------------------------
IntelliCell BioSciences, Inc., had received a warning letter,
dated March 13, 2012, from the Food and Drug Administration
related to an inspection of the Company conducted between November

visits.

Dr. Steven Victor, Chairman of IntelliCell Biosciences stated,
"The FDA Warning Letter is an opportunity for the Company to
discuss the observations of the Company's facilities relating to
current good manufacturing practices (cGMP's) with the FDA.  The
FDA also raised questions regarding the regulatory category that
the cells produced by the Company's technology fall into, which
the Company also intends to discuss with the FDA.  The Company is
moving to a new, commercial facility in late April 2012, and
believes that the new facility will address the cGMP issues.  The
Company has also hired consultants and counsel who have extensive
experience with applicable FDA regulations, as well as with the
requirements of bringing the new facilities on line and in
compliance with the FDA's requirements.  The Company will be
providing comprehensive response to FDA on April 3 that will
thoroughly address all of the FDA's observations."

JEFFERSON COUNTY: Bond Fight Begins a New Round
-----------------------------------------------
American Bankruptcy Institute reports that while Wall Street has
sparred with Jefferson County, Ala., for years over the local
government's crippling debt, the two sides are now arguing over
the condition of 3,200 miles of sewage pipes below Alabama's
largest metropolitan area.

                     About Jefferson County

Jefferson County has its seat in Birmingham, Alabama.  It has a
population of 660,000.

Jefferson County filed a bankruptcy petition under Chapter 9
(Bankr. N.D. Ala. Case No. 11-05736) on Nov. 9, 2011, after an
agreement among elected officials and investors to refinance
$3.1 billion in sewer bonds fell apart.

John S. Young Jr. LLC was appointed as receiver by Alabama Circuit
Court Judge Albert Johnson in September 2010.

Jefferson County's bankruptcy represents the largest municipal
debt adjustment of all time.  The county said that long-term debt
is $4.23 billion, including about $3.1 billion in defaulted sewer
bonds where the debt holders can look only to the sewer system for
payment.

The county said it would use the bankruptcy court to put a value
on the sewer system, in the process fixing the amount bondholders
should be paid through Chapter 9.

Judge Thomas B. Bennett presides over the Chapter 9 case.  Lawyers
at Bradley Arant Boult Cummings LLP and Klee, Tuchin, Bogdanoff &
Stern LLP, led by Kenneth Klee, represent the Debtor as counsel.
Kurtzman Carson Consultants LLC serves as claims and noticing
agent.  Jefferson estimated more than $1 billion in assets.  The
petition was signed by David Carrington, president.

The bankruptcy judge in January 2012 ruled that the state court-
appointed receiver for the sewer system largely lost control as a
result of the bankruptcy. Before deciding whether Jefferson County
is eligible for Chapter 9, the bankruptcy judge will allow the
Alabama Supreme Court to decide whether sewer warrants are the
equivalent of "funding or refunding bonds" required under state
law before a municipality can be in bankruptcy.

U.S. District Judge Thomas B. Bennett ruled in March 2012 that
Jefferson County is eligible under state law to pursue a debt
restructuring under Chapter 9.  Holders of more than $3 billion in
defaulted sewer debt had challenged the county's right to be in
Chapter 9.

LEHMAN BROTHERS: Dist. Court Remands NY Atty General Suit vs. E&Y
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Lewis Kaplan of the U.S. District Court for the Southern
District of New York remanded the lawsuit filed by the People of
the State of New York by its Attorney General against Lehman
Brothers Holdings Inc.'s former auditors, Ernst & Young LLP, to
the state court where it was first filed despite agreement by the
parties that jurisdiction of the case lies with the federal
district court.

Judge Kaplan, in a March 22, 2012 memorandum opinion, said
jurisdiction could not be conferred upon the District Court by
agreement of the parties and that it remains obliged to examine
its jurisdiction despite the State's concession.

The District Court added that remand of the action is the only
course open to it in the present posture of the case.  Judge
Kaplan pointed out that the State purports to base each of its
four causes of action on state law.  Judge Kaplan, citing a case
decided by the Supreme Court, said the presence or possible
presence of a federal issue is not "a password opening federal
courts to any state action embracing a point of federal law."

The case is In re: LEHMAN BROTHERS SECURITIES AND ERISA
LITIGATION.  The People of the State of New York by Eric T.
Schneiderman, Attorney General of the State of New York v. Ernst
& Young LLP, 11 Civ. 384 (LAK), No. 09 MD 2017 (LAK)(S.D.N.Y.).

-----------------------------------------------------------------
Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc.'s Bermuda reinsurance unit is
seeking bankruptcy court approval to close on the sale of Congress

sale and an additional $45 million used to capitalize Congress
Life will be held in a segregated account until there is a ruling

LEHMAN BROTHERS: Turns Down Minibond Investors' Appeal
------------------------------------------------------
A federal judge turned down an appeal by investors that suffered
losses after buying so-called minibonds linked to Lehman Brothers
Holdings Inc., quashing the investors' bid for greater recovery,
Fox Business reported.

The investors previously objected to the way Judge James Peck of
the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Manhattan said that Lehman could
unwind its derivatives claims.  They argued that as owners of the
"minibonds," they could step into the shoes of an affiliate of
HSBC Holdings PLC and that HSBC, which issued the structured
financing products, had a fiduciary duty to protect them.

Judge Richard Sullivan of U.S. District Court in New York agreed,
however, with Judge Peck that the investors lack standing to
object to the procedures of how Lehman can unwind its derivatives
claims "because appellants are merely investors" in an entity
that managed the products, Fox Business reported.

Since just after Lehman's bankruptcy filing, investors have
fought over the minibonds -- some $2 billion worth of structured
finance products issued by HSBC.  The products were marketed to
retail investors in Hong Kong as safe investments but were in
fact tied to an interest-rate default swap to which Lehman served
as the counterparty, according to the report.

Lehman's bankruptcy caused the value of the bonds to collapse,
which sparked protests outside of HSBC offices and other banks in
Hong Kong and prompted regulators there to intervene, Fox
Business reported.

LEHMAN BROTHERS: JPMorgan to Pay $20MM to Settle CFTC Charges
-------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission filed and
simultaneously settled charges against JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A.
for its unlawful handling of Lehman Brothers, Inc.'s customer
segregated funds.  The CFTC order imposes a $20 million civil
monetary penalty against JPMorgan.  The order also requires
JPMorgan to implement undertakings to ensure the proper handling
of customer segregated funds in the future and to release
customer funds upon notice and instruction from the CFTC.

The CFTC order finds that from at least November 2006 to September
2008, JPMorgan was a depository institution serving LBI, a futures
commission merchant (FCM) registered with the CFTC. During this
time, LBI deposited its customers' segregated funds with JPMorgan
in large amounts that varied in size, but almost always more than
$250 million at any one time.

According to the order, during the same time period, JPMorgan
extended intra-day credit to LBI on a daily basis to facilitate
LBI's proprietary transactions, including repurchase agreements,
or "repos."  JPMorgan would extend intra-day credit to LBI to the
extent that LBI's "net free equity" at JPMorgan was positive. As
of November 17, 2006, JPMorgan included LBI's customer segregated
funds in its calculation of LBI's net free equity, even though
these funds belonged to LBI's customers, not to LBI, the order
also finds.

The Commodity Exchange Act and CFTC regulations prohibit
depository institutions, like JPMorgan, from using or holding
segregated funds that belong to an FCM's customer as though they
belong to anyone other than that customer, and also prohibit the
extension of credit based on such funds to anyone other than that
customer.

According to the order, JPMorgan violated these prohibitions in
two ways. First, as stated in the order, JPMorgan extended intra-
day credit to LBI for approximately 22 months based in part on LBI
customers' segregated funds because those funds were included in
JPMorgan's determination of LBI's net free equity. Second, on
September 15, 2008, Lehman Brothers Holding, Inc. filed for
bankruptcy. Two days later, LBI requested that JPMorgan release
LBI's customers' segregated funds. JPMorgan improperly declined
the request based on JPMorgan's determination that LBI no longer
had positive net free equity held at JPMorgan. JPMorgan continued
to refuse to release these funds for approximately two weeks
thereafter, only to release the funds after being instructed by
CFTC officials. The CFTC order does not find that there were any
customer losses.

"The laws applying to customer segregated accounts impose critical
restrictions on how financial institutions can treat customer
funds, and prohibit these institutions from standing in the way of
immediate withdrawal," said David Meister, the Director of the
CFTC's Division of Enforcement. "As should be crystal clear, these
laws must be strictly observed at all times, whether the markets
are calm or in crisis."

CFTC Division of Enforcement staff members responsible for this
matter are Joan M. Manley, A. Daniel Ullman II, and Alison B.
Wilson. Ananda K. Radhakrishnan and Robert B. Wasserman, of the
CFTC's Division of Clearing and Risk, also contributed to this
matter.

LIGHTSQUARED INC: Falcone Said to Have Met With Icahn
-----------------------------------------------------
Bloomberg's Katherine Burton, Max Abelson and Saijel Kishan,
citing unnamed sources, report that Phil Falcone, senior managing
director of hedge fund Harbinger Capital Partners, together with
two colleagues met with Carl Icahn, billionaire investor and
chairman of Icahn Enterprises Holdings LP, at a New York
restaurant one night in March.  Bloomberg relates that, according
to a person at the restaurant, Mr. Falcone said he hoped Mr. Icahn
might become a partner in LightSquared Inc.

Messrs. Falcone and Icahn wouldn't comment on their discussions,
Bloomberg relates.

Bloomberg notes Mr. Falcone is fighting to maintain control of
LightSquared and reverse the biggest drop in assets in Harbinger's
history -- $23 billion from withdrawals and losses.

According to Bloomberg, LightSquared's creditors, including Mr.
Icahn, 76, have agreed to wait until the end of the month before
deciding whether to put the company in technical default as a
result of the Federal Communications Commissions' announcement.
If Mr. Falcone, who heads the firm's executive committee, can't
persuade them to extend the deadline, LightSquared could file for
bankruptcy and wage war against debt holders who want a rapid sale
of his spectrum, he said.

The report notes Mr. Icahn along with investors including David
Tepper, head of hedge fund Appaloosa Management LP, have bought
about $300 million of LightSquared debt.

Bloomberg also notes Harbinger in January borrowed $190 million
from investment bank Jefferies Group Inc. at an effective rate of
24% to refinance the remaining portion of a $400 million loan from
UBS AG.

According to Bloomberg, Mr. Falcone has said he's spending a day a
week in Washington and is trying to negotiate a spectrum swap with
the military or others that would eliminate LightSquared's GPS
problem.  The report notes Walt Piecyk, an analyst at BTIG LLC in
New York, said the Pentagon won't go along, adding that a "swap of
spectrum isn't a realistic option," and that "First, there's
nothing readily available and second, if there was, that's
spectrum that could be auctioned off for billions in proceeds."

Bloomberg says Mr. Falcone said if the swap doesn't work he'll try
to negotiate with GPS manufacturers to put filters on their
devices or to use the lower end of his spectrum. Or there's the
court.

"If I have to, I'll put it into bankruptcy, I don't care." Mr.
Falcone said. " I will maintain control."

MAJESTIC CAPITAL: WEST-FAIR Files Suit vs. Comp. Risk Managers
--------------------------------------------------------------
BankruptcyData.com reports that Majestic Capital Debtors WEST-FAIR
filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court a lawsuit against
Compensation Risk Managers.  WEST-FAIR alleges that Compensation
Risk Managers failed to carry out their respective contractual,
common law and statutory obligations to WEST-FAIR, to provide
third-party administration, insurance and other services to the
self-funded workers' compensation trust of which WESTFAIR was a
member.

According to WEST-FAIR, The New York Workers' Compensation Board,
which regulates self-insured trusts, has determined that the Trust
is underfunded by $82.2 million, and the fund's administrative
costs associated with all defaulting self-insurers, are
approximately $925 million, for which WEST-FAIR, along with the
other member employers of the Trust, are liable. And according to
WEST-FAR, the WC Board has indicated to WEST-FAIR its intent to
commence an action against them to collect the deficit and
administrative costs. WEST-FAIR seeks to hold the Defendants
accountable for the breach of their respective duties and for
their fraudulent and unlawful acts with respect to the operation
and management of the Trust.

for $12.3 million to MPI Acquisition LLC, an affiliate of private-
equity investor Watermill Group from Lexington, Massachusetts.

Watermill already owns paper maker FutureMark Paper Co., according
to the buyer's website.

Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News, notes
that the order signed by the bankruptcy judge on April 17
approving the sale precludes anyone from suing suppliers for
preferential payments received in three months before bankruptcy.
The sale, originally scheduled for February, was postponed when
there was no buyer at the time.

MARCO POLO: Debtors Have Plan Exclusivity Until April 24
--------------------------------------------------------
Seaarland Shipping Management and its affiliates still have sole
rights to propose a Chapter 11 plan, according to a bridge order
entered by Bankruptcy Judge James M. Peck on April 12.

A hearing was scheduled April 12 on the Debtor's request to extend
its exclusive period to propose a Chapter 11 plan until May 31,
2012 and the exclusive period to solicit acceptances of such plan
until July 31, 2012.  Lenders have opposed an extension, asking
the judge instead to terminate exclusivity so that they could file
their own plan.  The lenders say that the Dutch shipping company
is using a delay in filing its own plan.

An April 11 court filing by the Debtors said that on April 12,
prior to the hearing, the Debtors will file a plan of liquidation
that will provide for the disposition of all of the Debtors?
assets in a manner that will maximize value for the benefit of all
creditors in accordance with the Bankruptcy Code. The Liquidating
Plan will further provide for the distribution of the proceeds in
accordance with the absolute priority rule.  The Debtors said that
the filing of the Liquidating Plan will dispatch with the need for
the Court to consider the exclusivity motion and the lenders'
cross motions to terminate exclusivity.

The case docket, however, shows that as of April 18, 2012, the
Debtors have not filed the Liquidating Plan.

Hearings on the plan exclusivity extension has previously been
postponed (and bridge orders have been entered) in order to give
both sides more time to discuss the Chapter 11 plan.

The lenders asking to file their own plan are Royal Bank of
Scotland, Norddeutsche Landesbank Girozentrale, and Credit
Agricole Corporate & Investment Bank.

2011.  The other affiliates are Seaarland Shipping Management
B.V.; Magellano Marine C.V.; and Cargoship Maritime B.V.

The filings were prompted after lender Credit Agricole Corporate
& Investment Bank seized one ship on July 21, 2011, and was on
the cusp of seizing two more on July 29.  The arrest of the
vessel was authorized by the U.K. Admiralty Court.  Credit

MBI ENERGY: S&P Assigns 'B' Corp. Credit Rating; Outlook Stable
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its 'B' corporate
credit rating to Belfield, North Dakota-based MBI Energy Services
Inc. The outlook is stable.

"We also assigned our 'B' issue-level rating (the same as the
corporate rating) to MBI's planned $250 million senior unsecured
notes due 2020. We assigned the notes a '4' recovery rating,
indicating our expectation of average (30% to 50%) recovery of
principal in the event of a payment default," S&P said.

"The ratings on MBI Energy Services Inc. (MBI) reflect our
assessment of the company's 'vulnerable' business risk and
'aggressive' financial risk," said Standard & Poor's credit
analyst Lawrence Wilkinson. "The ratings incorporate the company's
relatively small scale, limited product and geographic diversity,
and its position in a highly cyclical, capital-intensive and
competitive industry. The ratings also reflect the company's
meaningful exposure to oil-directed development activities, high
proportion of production-related revenues, adequate liquidity, and
moderate debt leverage."

"MBI is an oilfield service company that focuses on providing
fluid management, logistics, and well intervention services to
exploration and production companies. The company's business lines
include fresh water procurement and fluid delivery, frac tank and
fluid storage, fluid removal and disposal, crude oil hauling,
proppant and other logistics services, cased hole wireline,
workover, and swabbing. In addition to the company's fleet of 178
water and 118 crude hauling trucks, the company has brokering
arrangements with over 655 owner-operated trucks. While the
company is primarily focused on the Bakken Shale in North Dakota,
it also has operations in the Marcellus Shale in Pennsylvania,
Niobrara in Wyoming, and the Eagle ford Shale in South Texas," S&P
said.

"The stable outlook reflects our view that MBI's performance will
continue to benefit from continued activity growth in the Bakken
over the intermediate term. Near-term positive rating actions are
unlikely given our assessment of the company's business risk
profile. We could lower the rating if MBI's debt/EBITDAX ratio
exceeds 6.0x for a sustained period, which would most likely occur
as a result of a large debt-financed acquisition or a major
pullback in the development of the Bakken due to lower oil prices.
For this threshold to be breached in 2012, EBITDA would need to
decline by more than 50% from currently anticipated levels," S&P
said.


MEAD PRODUCTS: S&P Assigns 'B+' Rating to New $500MM Senior Notes
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its preliminary 'B+'
rating to U.S.-based Mead Products LLC's proposed $500 million
senior unsecured notes due 2020. "We are also assigning our
preliminary '5' recovery rating to the proposed issue, indicating
our expectation that lenders would receive modest (10% to 30%)
recovery in the event of a payment default. The notes will be
initially issued by Monaco SpinCo Inc., to complete the merger of
ACCO Brands Corp. (B+/Watch Pos/--) and the Consumer & Office
Products division of MeadWestvaco through a Reverse Morris Trust
transaction. Immediately following completion of the merger (which
will simultaneously occur with the notes issuance), Monaco SpinCo
Inc. will be merged with and into Mead Products LLC, of which ACCO
Brands Corp. will be the sole member. The ratings are based on
preliminary terms and conditions, and that ACCO shareholder
approval of the proposed merger will be received at its
shareholder meeting scheduled to take place on April 23, 2012. If
ACCO's shareholders vote to approve the merger, the transaction
should close before May 1, 2012. If the shareholders do not
approve the merger, the proposed notes will not be issued and the
preliminary ratings would be withdrawn. ACCO has already received
regulatory approval for the transaction," S&P said.

"ACCO has indicated that it plans to use proceeds from this debt
issuance along with proceeds from its recently issued term loans
to repay outstanding debt obligations, including the company's
remaining 7.625% subordinated notes (about $246 million
outstanding) due 2015, existing 10.625% senior secured notes
(about $425 million outstanding) and to fund the cash portion of
the special distribution, and to pay fees and expenses incurred in
connection with the merger. As such, we expect ACCO's adjusted
debt levels pro forma for the merger as of Dec. 31, 2011, to
increase slightly to about $1.4 billion. The ratings on ACCO's
existing 10.625% senior secured notes due 2015, and the existing
7.625% subordinated notes due 2015, will be withdrawn after they
are redeemed upon closing of the transaction. ACCO will also
distribute shares of its common stock to MeadWestvaco shareholders
as part of the consideration for the acquisition," S&P said.

"The ratings on ACCO, including the 'B+' corporate credit rating,
remain on CreditWatch with positive implications, pending the
close of the transaction and corresponding financing. Following
the close of the transaction, we expect to raise our corporate
credit rating on ACCO to 'BB-' and assign a stable outlook. Along
with the '5' recovery rating assigned to the proposed notes, the
issue-level rating is correlated to the expected upgrade of ACCO.
Our ratings incorporate our view of the ACCO's 'weak' business
risk profile and 'aggressive' financial risk profile. In the
unlikely event that ACCO does not receive shareholder approval to
complete the proposed transaction, we would affirm the existing
'B+' corporate credit rating and remove it from CreditWatch.
Recovery ratings for all existing debt would then be reassessed,
as well as the corresponding issue-level ratings," S&P said.

and Alabama.  The Company and four affiliates filed for Chapter 11
bankruptcy (Bankr. M.D. Ala. Case Nos. 11-12254 thru 11-12258) on

Dec. 16, 2011.  The other debtor-affiliates are Small Loans, Inc.,
The Money Tree of Louisiana, Inc., The Money Tree of Florida Inc.,
and The Money Tree of Georgia of Georgia Inc.  Judge William R.
Sawyer oversees the case, replacing Judge Dwight H. Williams, Jr.
Max A. Moseley, Esq., at Baker Donelson Bearman Caldwell & Berkow,
P.C., serves as the Debtors' counsel.  The Debtors hired Warren,
Averett, Kimbrough & Marino, LLC, as restructuring advisors.

assets, $92,655,010 in liabilities, and $57,795,821 in total
stockholders' deficit.  The Money Tree Inc. disclosed $73,413,612
in assets and $73,050,785 in liabilities as of the Chapter 11
filing.  The petitions were signed by Biladley D. Bellville,
president.

The Company's subsidiary, Best Buy Autos of Bainbridge Inc., is

unsecured creditors for the Debtors.  The Committee tapped HGH
Associates LLC as its accountants and financial advisors.


MOORE SORRENTO: Wants Control of Case Until June; Has Sale Deal
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moore Sorrento, LLC, asks the Bankruptcy Court to extend the
exclusive period to file a chapter 11 plan and the exclusive
period to solicit plan votes to June 15, 2012.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on Oct. 20, 2011,
Moore Sorrento delivered a plan of reorganization and disclosure
statement dated Oct. 3, 2011.  All classes of claims and interests
are estimated to have 100% recovery under the Plan.

J. Robert Forshey, Esq., at Forshey & Prostok LLP, tells the Court
the Debtor is continuing to work towards finalizing an asset
purchase agreement with Inland Real Estate Acquisitions, LLC,
which will allow the Debtor to move forward with an alternative
reorganization structure based on a sale of a majority of the
Shopping Center to Inland.  This alternative reorganization
structure will require the filing of an amendment to the current
Plan.  The hearing for confirmation of the Plan, as amended, will
also have to be scheduled to allow the due diligence period under
an APA with Inland to run.  Therefore, the Debtor anticipates that
confirmation of an amended Plan would occur in May 2012.  The need
for additional time to allow the potential sale to Inland to move
forward and to file the necessary documents related to the same,
favor the extension of the Exclusive Periods.

Mr. Forshey submits that the Debtor has made significant progress
toward ultimate resolution of this case by proposing and filing
the Plan.  The Plan has been accepted by all creditors who have
voted on the Plan and the Debtor will seek confirmation of the
Plan in its current form if a property sale to Inland does not
materialize or if Wells Fargo will not consent to further
extension of the Agreement to allow the Inland transaction to move
forward.

The progress made by the Debtor towards reorganization is also
evidenced by the Agreement reached with Wells Fargo and the
progress made towards finalizing an APA with Inland.  If Wells
Fargo agrees to extend the Agreement and an APA is promptly signed
with Inland, the Debtor will be able to move forward with an
amended version of the Plan that will have the support of Wells
Fargo.  Therefore, the Debtor's significant progress towards
reorganization strongly favors granting a further extension of the
Exclusive Periods.

The Plan, in its current state, provides for, inter alia,
completion of construction of the Shopping Center, with such
construction costs to be partially funded by a capital
contribution of $1 million by two of the Debtor's owners, and full
payment of all creditor claims.  The Debtor believes that the Plan
is feasible and satisfies the requirements of the Bankruptcy Code.
Votes on the Plan have been solicited, with only Wells Fargo's
deadline for voting having been extended pursuant to the Agreement
and Amendment.  All other creditors who have submitted ballots
have voted to accept the Plan.  The Debtor has unquestionably
demonstrated the ability to file a viable plan of reorganization
and this factor favors granting the Motion.

             Confirmation Hearing Rescheduled to May 3

The Bankruptcy Court has reset the hearing to May 15, 2012, at
9:30 a.m., to consider confirmation of Moore Sorrento's proposed
First Amended Plan, which was filed Oct. 3, 2011.

Under the October Plan, Class 1 Convenience Claims will receive a
single cash payment equal to 100% of the Allowed Claim without
interest.  Any holder of a General Unsecured Claim may make an
election under the Plan to be treated as a Convenience Claims.

Class 2 Wells Fargo Secured Claim is estimated to be
$39.8 million.  Wells Fargo's Allowed Claim based on the First
Note will be paid in 60 installments and will bear a 5% interest
per annum as of the Effective Date.  Wells Fargo's Allowed Claim
based on the Second Note will be paid in 60 installments and will
bear a 7% interest per annum as of the Effective Date.

Class 3 General Unsecured Claims will receive the allowed claim
amount in 60 installments without interest.

Class 4 Secured Tax Claim will also be paid in 60 equal
installments, and will bear interest at a rate yet to be fixed.

Class 5 Interests in the Debtor will be retained.  Collins and
Lippman will make a capital contribution to the Debtor as of the
Effective Date in the amount of $1 million.

MOORE SORRENTO: May Use Wells Fargo Cash Collateral Thru June 3
---------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Texas
authorized, in a seventh interim order, Moore Sorrento, LLC, to
use the cash collateral in which Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., asserts
an interest.

The Debtor's authority to use cash collateral will terminate on
June 3, 2012, at 12:00 a.m., Prevailing Central Time.

As of the Petition Date, Wells Fargo asserts a perfected and
senior priority lien on the Wells Fargo Collateral to secure
payment of the First Note, as reflected by, among other things,
that certain Mortgage (with Power of Sale), Security Agreement,
Assignment of Rents and Financing Statement dated Nov. 7, 2007,
and that certain Assignment of Rents dated Nov. 7, 2007.

The Debtor will use the cash collateral to fund its business
operations.  The Debtor must not exceed the expenditures by 10% on
any line item basis or 10% of the total monthly expenditures,
provided that the Debtor will not make any payments to or for the
benefit of any "insider".

The adequate protection payments in the amount of $176,562
will required to be made by the Debtor to Wells Fargo on or before
April 10, 2012, and on or before May 10, 2012, which will
constitute payments of interest on the Loans at the non-default
contract rates of interest.

As additional adequate protection, on or before the 10th day of
each month, the Debtor will deposit $23,100 as escrow for real
estate taxes, which amounts will be held by Wells Fargo in a
reserve account pending further order of the Court.

As adequate protection for any diminution in value of the lender's
collateral, the Debtors will grant Wells Fargo replacement liens
on the prepetition Wells Fargo collateral, and property acquired
by the Debtor after the Petition Date; and superpriority
administrative expense claim.

MQVP INC: 6th Circ. Affirms Approval of $1.2 Million Settlement
---------------------------------------------------------------
Circuit Judge Julia Smith Gibbons affirmed lower court rulings
approving a settlement in the Chapter 7 bankruptcy case of MQVP
Inc.  Before conversion to Chapter 7, MQVP had been litigating two
separate lawsuits alleging trademark infringement. The trustee of
the MQVP estate sought approval from the bankruptcy court of a
settlement to resolve these suits, which involved a payment of
$1.2 million to the estate.  MQVP creditors William Hindelang and
Global Online Certifications, Inc. objected to the proposed
settlement on grounds that the trustee had not met his burden of
showing that the settlement was reasonable. After a hearing, the
bankruptcy court approved the settlement, and the district court
subsequently affirmed.  The Sixth Circuit held that the bankruptcy
judge did not abuse her discretion in approving the settlement.

MQVP was involved in two lawsuits.  In the first, filed in the
Eastern District of Arkansas, Mid-State Aftermarket Body Parts
sued MQVP seeking a declaratory judgment that it had not infringed
MQVP's trademark. MQVP counterclaimed, alleging violations of the
Lanham Act, unfair business practices, tortious interference,
unfair competition, and conversion. The district court granted
summary judgment in favor of Mid-State, but the Eighth Circuit
reversed and remanded, finding that there were material, disputed
issues of fact for trial.  In the second proceeding, first filed
in bankruptcy court in the Eastern District of Michigan, MQVP sued
Keystone Automotive Industries, claiming violations of the Lanham
Act, unfair business practices, tortious interference, unfair
competition, and conversion.  Keystone filed various
counterclaims.  The case was later transferred to the district
court.  Keystone and Mid-State are associated with the LKQ
Corporation.

The settlement provided for (1) the dismissal with prejudice of
both the Arkansas and Michigan litigations; (2) the payment of
$1.2 million by LKQ to the trustee; (3) the assignment of certain
intellectual property of MQVP to LKQ; and (4) the withdrawal of
all claims filed by LKQ against the estate.

Global Online Certifications and William Hindelang, the former
sole shareholder of the Debtor, objected, saying the dollar amount
of the settlement was too low and that the trustee had failed to
meet his burden of showing that the settlement was reasonable.
Under the settlement, Global Online would receive around $130,000.
No other creditors had any objections; in fact, MQVP's largest
creditor supported the settlement.

The appellate case is William Hindelang and Global Online
Certifications, Inc., Appellants, v. Mid-State Aftermarket Body
Parts Inc., Keystone Automotive Industries, Inc., LKQ Corporation,
and Chapter 7 Trustee Charles J. Taunt, Appellees, No. 10-2225
(6th Cir.).

A copy of the Sixth Circuit's April 13, 2012 decision is available
at http://is.gd/FtZ98Bfrom Leagle.com.  The panel consists of
Circuit Judges Gibbons, Richard Allen Griffin, and Bernice B.
Donald.

MQVP Inc. -- the Manufacturers' Qualification and Validation
Program Inc. -- maintained the registered service mark MQVP, which
represented a supply chain quality and assurance program in the
aftermarket auto crash parts industry.  The MQVP program, in which
aftermarket car part manufacturers, distributors, and insurance
companies participated, was to certify the quality and
traceability of aftermarket parts that were manufactured and sold.
MQVP filed a voluntary Chapter 11 petition (Bankr. E.D. Mich. Case
No. 06-_____) on Aug. 17, 2006.  On July 18, 2007, Judge Marci
McIvor converted the case to a Chapter 7 proceeding, and Charles
J. Taunt was appointed trustee.


MSCI: Moody's Affirms 'Ba1' Corporate Family Rating
---------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a Ba1 rating to MSCI's proposed
new senior secured Term Loan A and affirmed all existing ratings
including the Ba1 Corporate Family Rating, Ba2 Probability of
Default Rating and the SGL-1 Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating.

Ratings Rationale

"MSCI's announced debt refinancing will result in lower financial
leverage and interest expense, but at the cost of less cash on
hand and somewhat higher near term amortization," said Edmond
DeForest, Vice President, Senior Analyst at Moody's Investors
Service.

Pro-forma for the transaction, debt to EBITDA is about 2.5x, and
should approach 2.0x by the end of fiscal year 2012 due to
expected revenue and profit growth. MSCI plans to use proceeds
from a new first-lien $600 million senior secured Term Loan A and
$200 million of cash from the balance sheet to pay down existing
borrowings under their Term Loan B. The transaction increases
annual debt amortization by approximately $30 million a year, but
reduces annual interest expense substantially. The faster
scheduled amortization should be manageable for MSCI, as Moody's
expects the company to generate about $250 million of free cash
flow in 2012. MSCI is extending the revolver maturity to 2017,
which somewhat mitigates the liquidity-negative effect of less
cash on the balance sheet.

The following ratings are affirmed:

Corporate Family Rating: Ba1

Probability of Default Rating: Ba2

Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating: SGL-1

Senior Secured 1st Lien Revolving Credit Facility: Ba1
(LGD3 -- 34%)

Senior Secured Term Loan B: Ba1 (LGD3 -- 34%)

The following new rating is assigned:

Senior Secured Term Loan A: Ba1 (LGD3 -- 34%)

Rating Outlook

The stable outlook reflects Moody's expectation of a moderate
improvement in Financial Strength metrics in fiscal 2012,
including debt to EBITDA approaching 2.0 times and free cash flow
to debt of greater than 20%, driven by EBITDA growth and the use
of free cash flow to reduce term debt. Performance should continue
to benefit from trends supporting the growth of equity exchange
traded funds (ETFs), international (especially emerging market)
equity indices and risk management products.

The ratings could be raised following a material expansion of the
income and overall business scale to be consistent with other
companies at a higher rating level, including revenue of over $1.2
billion, sustained debt to EBITDA of under 3 times, and a
demonstrated commitment to conservative financial policies. The
ratings could be lowered if there is a meaningful increase in
competition, client retention rates deteriorate or a more
difficult pricing environment evolves causing us to anticipate an
erosion in profitability and for debt to EBITDA and free cash flow
to debt to be sustained at over 4 times or under 10%, respectively
A change to more aggressive financial policies could also trigger
a downgrade.

MSCI is a leading global provider of investment decision support
tools, including indices, portfolio risk and performance analytics
and corporate governance products and services. Fiscal 2012
revenue should approach $1.0 billion.

The principal methodology used in rating MSCI, Inc. was Moody's
Global Business & Consumer Service Industry Methodology published
in October, 2010. Other methodologies used include Loss Given
Default for Speculative-Grade Non-Financial Companies in the U.S.,
Canada and EMEA published in June 2009.


NATTEL LLC: May 23 Hearing Set Over Bahamian Business Rules
-----------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit, NatTel LLC, v. Oceanic Digital Communications,
Inc., ODC St. Lucia Limited, PCI Holdings Ltd., Oceanic Digital
Jamaica Limited, S.A.C. Capital Advisors, LLC, S.A.C. Capital
Management, LLC, S.A.C. Capital Associates, LLC, America Movil
S.A.B. de C.V., and The Bank of New York Mellon Corporation, Adv.
Proc. No. 07-5037 (Bankr. D. Conn.), Bankruptcy Judge Alan H. W.
Shiff ruled that NatTel's first amended complaint -- not the
second amended complaint -- is the operative complaint, and denied
ODC's and SAC's motions to dismiss the original complaint as moot.
Judge Shiff directed the parties to comply with the Bahamian
International Business Companies Act regarding the rights of
dissenters to the sale of a company, and scheduled a hearing on
May 23, 2012, at 10:00 a.m., to hear arguments on whether to
compel arbitration regarding the application of the IBCA in the
case.  The defendants have until May 2 to file memoranda in
support of arbitration, if any.  NatTel has until May 16 to file
its response, if any.  The Court deferred ruling on SAC's request
to abstain or, in the alternative, to dismiss.

NatTel LLC claims that its only property is its 667 shares in
Oceanic Digital Communications, Inc.  Upon learning of the
contemplated sale of all of ODC's assets, NatTel commenced the
adversary proceeding seeking, inter alia, a declaratory judgment
regarding the value of its shares.  The ODC and the SAC defendants
object and have moved for its dismissal, relying on the res
judicata and collateral estoppel effects of prior litigation and
arbitration.

On Oct. 29, 2010, and Feb. 9, 2011, NatTel filed motions for
permission to file a first and a second amended complaint.  On
Feb. 7, 2011, NatTel filed a "Notice of Partial Dismissal"
pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 41(a)(1)(A)(i) and
Federal Rule of Bankruptcy Procedure 7041 to dismiss the Action as
it related to ODC.  ODC and SAC both object to the motions to
amend. ODC also moves to vacate the Notice of Partial Dismissal
and moves to compel arbitration; SAC joins in both those motions.
SAC also requests the court to abstain from ruling on the Action.

NatTel is a wireless telecommunications holding company organized
under the laws of Delaware as a limited liability company.  Its
principals are Jack Robinson and Daniel Carpenter.  NatTel created
ODC, which was originally organized under the laws of Delaware,
but, sometime between 1998 and 2000, it became and remains
incorporated as an international business company under the laws
of the Commonwealth of the Bahamas.  NatTel's principals were
board members and officers of ODC.  ODC was created for the
purpose of acquiring cellular telecommunications licenses and
operations in the Caribbean and Latin America.  In 1998, when it
was ODC's majority shareholder, NatTel began negotiations with
SAC, a multi-billion dollar hedge fund, to acquire capital for
those acquisitions.  SAC subsequently invested $100 million and
became ODC's majority and controlling shareholder.  In early 2000,
having a different vision for ODC, SAC caused NatTel's principals
to be removed as officers and from the board of ODC.  That event
was the impetus for the subsequent 10 years of litigation.

Order is available at http://is.gd/AUB82zfrom Leagle.com.

NATIONAL CINEMEDIA: Moody's Affirms Ba3 CFR, Rates Sr. Notes Ba2
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a Ba2 rating to National
CineMedia's (NCM) $315 million 10-year senior secured notes, which
is the same rating as that assigned to the company's senior
secured credit facilities. NCM's Ba3 corporate family rating (CFR)
and probability of default (PDR) remain unchanged and were
affirmed as was the B2 rating assigned to the company's senior
unsecured notes due in 2021. NCM's SGL-2 speculative grade
liquidity rating (indicating good liquidity) was also affirmed.
The ratings outlook remains stable.

The CFR and PDR affirmation stems from the fact that the
transaction is approximately leverage neutral since $275 million
of the new notes issue will be applied to repay a portion of NCM's
term bank credit facility and a further $34 million will be used
to eliminate related swap amounts. Further, since there is no
change in available liquidity (albeit, as part of the transaction,
the maturity of the company's revolving bank credit facility is
being conditionally extended, which is positive), the SGL rating
remains unchanged and since the proportions of senior secured and
senior unsecured debt remain relatively unchanged, there is no
change for the ratings of either class of debt. It is noted
however, that with a substantial 77% of its debt being secured,
NCM has somewhat limited capacity to increase that proportion
without causing the entire senior secured tranche to be downgraded
to the level of its CFR, Ba3.

The following summarizes the rating actions and National
CineMedia's ratings:

Issuer: National CineMedia, LLC

Rating Actions:

  Senior Secured Regular Bond/Debenture, assigned Ba2 (LGD3, 38%)

  Senior Secured Bank Credit Facility, Affirmed at Ba2, with the
  LGD assessment revised to (LGD3, 38% from (LGD3, 37%)

  Senior Unsecured Regular Bond/Debenture, affirmed at B2 with
  the LGD assessment revised to (LGD6, 90%) from (LGD5, 89%)

  Corporate Family Rating, Affirmed at Ba3

  Probability of Default Rating, Affirmed at Ba3

  Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating, affirmed at SGL-2

Outlook Actions:

   Outlook, affirmed at Stable

Ratings Rationale

National CineMedia LLC (NCM) has a Ba3 corporate family (CFR) and
probability of default rating (PDR), a stable ratings outlook, and
an SGL-2 speculative grade liquidity rating. The foundations of
the company's CFR and PDR are its stable and sustainable cash flow
stream and its stable leverage. NCM's leverage is 3.8x (December
2011) and is expected to be in the 3.5x-to-4.0x range over the
rating horizon. These positive attributes are offset by the
company's mandate to distribute all free cash flow to its members
and by the potential of results declining over time should ongoing
secular pressures stress the financial profiles of its cinema
exhibition partners.

Rating Outlook

The stable ratings outlook reflects expectations of relatively
stable revenue and EBITDA growth and leverage that is between 3.5x
to 4.0x.

What Could Change the Rating - Up

Given the combination of NCM's mandate to distribute all of its
free cash flow and the potential of a re-levering event, a ratings
upgrade is not anticipated. However, should NCM maintain TD/EBITDA
at less than 3.5x while committing to operate in such a range,
there is the potential of positive ratings pressure.

What Could Change the Rating - Down

Downward pressure on the rating may occur if NCM increased
borrowing to fund a special dividend, or were the company to
experience an operational set-back such that leverage rose to over
4.0x. Adverse liquidity developments or debt-financed acquisition
activity would also provide adverse ratings pressure.

National CineMedia's ratings were assigned by evaluating factors
that Moody's considers relevant to the credit profile of the
issuer, such as the company's (i) business risk and competitive
position compared with others within the industry; (ii) capital
structure and financial risk; (iii) projected performance over the
near to intermediate term; and (iv) management's track record and
tolerance for risk. Moody's compared these attributes against
other issuers both within and outside National CineMedia's core
industry and believes National CineMedia's ratings are comparable
to those of other issuers with similar credit risk. Other
methodologies used include Loss Given Default for Speculative-
Grade Non-Financial Companies in the U.S., Canada and EMEA
published in June 2009 (and/or) the Government-Related Issuers
methodology published in July 2010.

Corporate Profile

position). NCM's mandate requires that it distribute all cash flow
that is not required for operational purposes to its owners.


NATIONAL CINEMEDIA: S&P Rates $315M Senior Unsecured Notes 'BB-'
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned NCM LLC's proposed
$315 million senior secured notes due 2022 its 'BB-' issue-level
rating (at the same level as S&P's 'BB-' corporate credit rating
on the company). "We also assigned the notes a recovery rating of
'3', indicating our expectation of meaningful (50% to 70%)
recovery for noteholders in the event of a payment default. The
company plans to use the proceeds from the transaction to
refinance a portion of its existing credit facilities and for swap
breakage fees and expenses. The proposed senior secured notes will
be secured by first-priority liens that will be pari passu with
the liens securing the existing senior secured credit facility,"
S&P said.

"All other ratings on the company, including our 'BB-' corporate
credit rating, remain unchanged. The rating outlook is stable. (We
rate NCM Inc. and operating subsidiary NCM LLC on a consolidated
basis)," S&P said

"The 'BB-' rating reflects our expectation that NCM should be able
to maintain leverage in the mid-3x area over the intermediate
term, despite its aggressive dividend policy. We consider the
company's business risk profile as 'fair', based on its
historically strong EBITDA margin and good market position. A high
dividend payout and minimal cash retention by operating subsidiary
NCM LLC underpin our view that the company's financial risk
profile is 'aggressive.' Although the company's credit metrics
deteriorated slightly in the fourth quarter of 2011 because of
weak advertising demand, we expect revenue and EBITDA to grow at a
low- to mid-single-digit percentage rate in 2012," S&P said.

"Operating subsidiary NCM LLC is the leading in-theater
advertising network in North America. Our assessment of NCM's
business risk as 'fair' stems from the company's high EBITDA
margin and long-term contracts with the three largest national
movie exhibitors in the U.S.: American Multi-Cinema Inc., a wholly
owned subsidiary of AMC Entertainment Inc.; Regal Cinemas Corp., a
wholly owned subsidiary of Regal Entertainment Group; and Cinemark
USA Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Cinemark Holdings Inc.
These contracts provide significant barriers to entry to new
entrants in addition to revenue visibility. A key risk is that
once NCM is able to sell all or nearly all of its inventory,
declining theater attendance could hurt performance, because
national advertisers pay NCM based on a cost per thousand viewers
(CPM) ad pricing metric. Unlike most other advertising media, NCM
has minimal ability to expand its ad inventory and, therefore,
relies on inventory utilization, ad rate increases, and winning
theater chain clients from its key competitor to generate revenue
growth," S&P said.

"Under our base-case scenario, we expect revenue and EBITDA to
grow at a low- to mid-single-digit percentage rate in 2012,
reflecting continued expansion of the company's screen count,
resulting in a higher number of advertising impressions and an
increase in access fees that NCM pays to theaters. We expect NCM's
attendance base to increase at a mid-single-digit rate, and that
national advertising rates will increase in the mid- to high-
single-digit range for the year. Most of the advertising rate
growth will likely take place in the second half of the year
because of easier comparisons and potentially higher demand if
political advertising on TV displaces core advertising in that
medium. We also expect that the company will continue to grow
local advertising rates by expanding into more profitable regional
advertising. We estimate that the company's EBITDA margin will
decline about 200 basis points in 2012 (but will still remain very
high) because of growth in lower-margin new network affiliates and
a contractual increase in theater access fees," S&P said.

"Debt to EBITDA for the year ended Dec. 31, 2011 (pro forma for
the proposed transaction) increased slightly to 3.7x, from 3.5x in
the prior-year period. Although this is slightly lower than the 4x
to 5x range of debt leverage that we regard as indicative of an
'aggressive' financial risk profile, the company distributes
nearly all of its free cash flow to shareholders and its founding
members as long as leverage remains below 6.5x. Pro forma EBITDA
coverage of interest declined to 4.2x from 5.1x in the prior-year
period as a result of higher interest expense on the proposed
notes and the notes that the company issued in the third quarter
of 2011. We expect debt leverage to remain in the mid-3x area,
based on our outlook for 2012 revenue and EBITDA growth," S&P
said.


NATIONAL ENVELOPE: April 26 Hearing on Abandonment of Plant
-----------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that the Chapter 7 trustee liquidating the remnants of
National Envelope Corp. lost the first skirmish in a battle with
state and federal environmental regulators regarding a
contaminated plant in New Jersey the company was unable to sell.
U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Peter J. Walsh ruled late last month that
whatever remains from the $2 million from the wind-down budget of
the Debtor must be spent on remediation.

The report recounts that when NEC sold the bulk of its assets, $9
million was set aside to pay expenses in winding down the
remainder of the business and the Chapter 11 case. In the wind-
down budget, $2 million was earmarked for environmental
remediation.  No one would purchase the New Jersey plant on
account of contamination.

The judge will hold another hearing on April 26 to decide if the
trustee can abandon the plant.

The report also relates that the ruling was in response to the
trustee's motion for permission to abandon the plant and a
declaration that the remaining money in the wind-down account was
free for use in paying creditors and other claims against the
bankrupt estate.  State and federal regulators objected,
contending that a case decided in 1986 by the U.S. Supreme Court
doesn't allow a bankrupt company to walk away from environmental
pollution by abandoning an asset.  In the NEC case, the dispute
involves about $5 million that the trustee still holds after the
sale of the business where a buyer took everything aside from the
one contaminated plant. Federal regulators said $1.5 million
remains from the portion earmarked for environmental pollution.

                        About NEC Holdings

Uniondale, New York-based National Envelope Corporation was
the largest manufacturer of envelopes in the world with
14 manufacturing facilities and 2 distribution centers and
approximately 3,500 employees in the U.S. and Canada.

NEC Holdings Corp., together with affiliates, including National
Envelope Inc., filed for Chapter 11 (Bankr. D. Del. Lead Case No.
10-11890) on June 10, 2010.  Kara Hammond Coyle, Esq., at Young
Conaway Stargatt & Taylor LLP, served as bankruptcy counsel to the
Debtors.  David S. Heller, Esq., at Josef S. Athanas, Esq., and
Stephen R. Tetro II, Esq., at Latham & Watkins LLP, served as
co-counsel.  The Garden City Group is the claims and notice agent.
Bradford J. Sandler, Esq., and Robert J. Feinstein, Esq., at
Pachuiski Stang Ziehl & Jones LLP, represented the Official
Committee of Unsecured Creditors.  Morgan Joseph & Co., Inc.,
served as the financial advisor to the Committee.  NEC Holdings
estimated assets and debts of $100 million to $500 million in its
Chapter 11 petition.

In September 2010, National Envelope's key assets were bought in
a roughly $208 million deal by The Gores Group LLC, a West Coast
private equity firm that manages about $2.9 billion of capital.

Judge Peter J. Walsh on Dec. 12, 2011, approved NEC Holdings'
request to convert its Chapter 11 case into a full liquidation.
Judge Walsh approved NEC's October request to liquidate the
remainder of its assets, which the company said was necessary
because it was quickly running out of cash to cover the remaining
claims against it, including the cleanup of a New Jersey
manufacturing site.

ONCURE MEDICAL: S&P Lowers Corporate Credit Rating to 'B-'

Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its 'B' corporate

company's second-lien notes to a 'B-' from a 'B', in accordance
with our notching criteria. The '4' recovery rating on the notes

Standard & Poor's Ratings Services' assessment of the company's
business risk profile as 'vulnerable' and the financial risk
profile as 'highly leveraged.' We expect OnCure to remain subject
to significant reimbursement risk such as the recent Medicare
payment cut to radiation treatment providers for 2012. We expect
OnCure's total revenue to decrease by 2.5% for 2012, primarily
from the impact of the Medicare rate cut. EBITDA margins are
projected to decrease by 200-250 basis points, because we consider
the majority of OnCure's expenses as fixed in nature and difficult
to rationalize to lower revenue levels. We do not expect OnCure to
generate positive discretionary cash flow, with low-single-digit
operating cash flow used to fund approximately $5 million of
annual maintenance capital expenditures. These projections assume
OnCure can maintain its relationship with ICON. Our expectations
incorporate the risk of tightened liquidity, if OnCure experiences
a drop in EBITDA requiring a draw on its revolving credit
facility. A fixed-charge covenant will be in effect upon drawing
on the facility, which would be pressured if OnCure sees a 20%
drop in EBITDA," S&P said.

"We view OnCure's financial risk profile as highly leveraged,
reflected in our forecast of adjusted debt to EBITDA of about 8.2x
at the end of 2012, up from 7.6 at 2011, and materially higher
than our original expectation of leverage around 5x. We have not
forecast any acquisition activity; however, it remains a
possibility as OnCure tries to expand its footprint. Our forecast
is for negative free operating cash flow for 2012, compared to our
prior-year estimate of approximately $6 million. We do not expect
any shareholder dividends," S&P said.

"We view the company's business risk as vulnerable; OnCure
operates in the highly fragmented and competitive radiation
therapy (oncology) market, has a modest revenue base of only $100
million with geographic, contract, and technology concentration,
and faces ongoing reimbursement concerns," S&P said.

"OnCure provides outpatient radiation oncology services in its 38
treatment centers in three states (16 in California, 18 in
Florida, and four in Indiana). Some group concentration exists
with the top two group practices representing 25% and 13% of
revenues, respectively. ICON, the second-largest physician group
notified OnCure last July that it intended to terminate its MSA
with OnCure in fall 2011. The two sides are still performing under
the terms of the contract as they work toward a resolution. Our
base-case scenario contemplates an eventual renegotiation with
ICON, with a modest negative impact in 2012. No other material
MSAs are up for renewal until 2016," S&P said.

PINNACLE AIRLINES: Spanjers Replaces Menke as CEO & President
-------------------------------------------------------------
Pinnacle Airlines Corp. on April 19, 2012, said Sean E. Menke was
resigning from his positions as President, Chief Executive Officer
and Director of the Company, effective June 1, 2012.

John Spanjers will take over as the Company's President and Chief
Executive Officer, effective June 1, 2012.

Mr. Spanjers, 57, has served as the Chief Operating Officer of the
Company since October 1, 2011.  Prior to that, Mr. Spanjers served
as President of Mesaba Aviation, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary
of the Company, since 2002.  Mr. Spanjers joined Mesaba in 1999 as
Vice President of Flight Operations.  Before joining Mesaba, Mr.
Spanjers was the Director of Performance Engineering for Northwest
Airlines, and held various other positions within the System
Operations Control organization at Northwest since June 1998.

Prior to that, Mr. Spanjers held various operational positions
within the regional and charter airline industry.  Mr. Spanjers
received a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of
Minnesota.

On April 19, 2012, the Company entered into a Management
Compensation Agreement with Mr. Spanjers, which replaces Mr.
Spanjers' previous agreement with the Company.

The term of the Agreement begins on June 1, 2012, and ends on the
date Mr. Spanjers' employment terminates.  The Agreement
establishes the initial annual base salary of Mr. Spanjers at
$525,000, subject to review on an annual basis.  Mr. Spanjers is
eligible to participate in the Company's Annual Bonus Program, and
will participate in the Company's Long-Term Incentive Program.
The Agreement provides that Mr. Spanjers is eligible to
participate in the same benefit programs that the Company provides
to its other employees or executive employees.

Upon the termination of Mr. Spanjers' employment due to death or
disability, the Company will pay Mr. Spanjers his accrued and
unpaid base salary and all amounts due under the terms of any
benefit plans.  In addition, Mr. Spanjers' rights under any
compensation or benefits programs will become vested and any
restrictions on restricted stock, stock options or contractual
rights will be removed.

The Company may terminate Mr. Spanjers' employment with or without
cause, as defined in the Agreement.  If Mr. Spanjers is terminated
for cause or if he voluntarily resigns, the Company will have no
further obligations to Mr. Spanjers, other than accrued
obligations and standard COBRA benefits.  If Mr. Spanjers is
terminated without cause or resigns with good reason, as defined
in the Agreement, the Company will pay Mr. Spanjers (i) any
accrued obligations, including salary and bonus, and (ii) an
amount equal to two times the sum of his base salary and target
incentive bonus, in equal installments at regular pay intervals
over 24 months.

In addition, Mr. Spanjers' rights under any compensation or
benefits programs will become vested and any restrictions on
restricted stock, stock options or contractual rights will be
removed.  Finally, the Company will compensate Mr. Spanjers for
any transition expenses in the amount of $60,000.  If Mr. Spanjers
remains employed by the Company for six months following a change
in control, Mr. Spanjers will be entitled to terminate his
employment without good reason, but receive the payment and
benefit obligations due in the case of his resignation with good
reason.

The Agreement contains confidentiality, non-competition, and non-
disparagement provisions.

According to the Company's news statement, Mr. Menke has chosen to
resign from the company on June 1 and will work closely with Mr.
Spanjers and the other members of Pinnacle's leadership team to
support a seamless transition over the next five weeks.  Pinnacle
does not anticipate this transition will impact the timeline of
the company's Chapter 11 proceedings or Pinnacle's ability to
successfully restructure and emerge from Chapter 11.

"John brings a strong and proven track record of airline
leadership," said Donald J. Breeding, Chairman of the Board of
Pinnacle Airlines Corp.  "Given his prior Chapter 11 experience,
John is particularly well-suited to lead Pinnacle's ongoing
turnaround efforts and has been actively involved in many of the
key initiatives and negotiations during our restructuring
process."

"Pinnacle has very talented employees and a strong leadership
team, and we remain focused on successfully emerging from Chapter
11," said Spanjers.  "Our operating performance has remained
strong since filing for Chapter 11 protection, and we expect that
our operations, supported by a deep bench of talent and committed
employees, will continue moving forward."

As of Mr. Menke's departure on June 1, Pinnacle expects to have
achieved a number of important restructuring objectives during the
initial 60 days of its Chapter 11 proceedings, including having:

     -- renegotiated key business agreements with Delta Air
        Lines, United Airlines and EDC;

     -- obtained final approval of its debtor-in-possession
        financing;

     -- completed the Section 1110 aircraft process;

     -- received final court approval of its "First Day motions"
        to help the company continue to operate in the ordinary
        course; and

     -- initiated a collegial and collaborative relationship with
        the Unsecured Creditors Committee and its advisors.

Pinnacle also said the previously-announced search for a new Chief
Financial Officer is progressing.

PINNACLE AIRLINES: United Steelworkers Reviewing NMB Ruling
-----------------------------------------------------------
The United Steelworkers said that the union is reviewing the
National Mediation Board's decision that Pinnacle Airlines, Colgan
Air and now-defunct Mesaba Aviation are a single carrier and
remains focused on protecting the interests of all 2,600
Steelworkers at the bankrupt regional airlines.

The USW has long represented flight attendants at Pinnacle and
Colgan and today represents nearly 1,800 flight attendants at
those two airlines.  The USW also represents 878 ground operations
employees of Pinnacle.  Mesaba Aviation ceased operations in
January 2012.  Pinnacle Airlines Corporation and its affiliates
filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy petitions in April 2012.

"Whether at the bargaining table, in federal bankruptcy court as a
voice for workers or in a representation election with another
union, the USW will continue to provide leadership, stability,
credibility and expertise," said USW International Vice President
Carol Landry, who heads the union's airline division.  "The
diversity of our membership and our ability to mobilize on
multiple fronts at the same time sets us apart and makes the USW
stronger."

Landry pointed out that the USW has been engaged in talks with
Pinnacle and Colgan management since late last year when the
companies first announced their financial troubles.

"Throughout our dealings with Pinnacle and Colgan, the USW has had
to push back against the airlines' overreaching attempts to
restructure the businesses on the backs of workers alone," Landry
said.

"With thousands of jobs and the future of the company on the line,
we will not be divided or distracted from our members' needs,"
Landry said. "Our members deserve a fair contract that recognizes
the value they bring to the company every day."

"Unity and solidarity are still our brothers' and sisters' best
opportunity to survive Pinnacle's bankruptcy with their jobs,
wages and benefits intact," she said.  "Continuity is the best way
to protect our members' interest in the bankruptcy process."

The USW represents about 850,000 working men and women in the
United States and Canada in a wide variety of industries, ranging
from glass making to mining, paper, steel, tire and rubber and
other manufacturing environments to the public sector, service and
health care industries.

PINNACLE AIRLINES: AFA Welcomes NMB's Single Carrier Ruling
-----------------------------------------------------------
The National Mediation Board declared that the
Pinnacle/Mesaba/Colgan merger has created a single carrier for
representation of over 1,300 Flight Attendants.  Over 600 Flight
Attendants at Mesaba are currently represented by the Association
of Flight Attendants-CWA (AFA).

"This is an amazing opportunity for Flight Attendants at these
three carriers to unite and stand together for a better tomorrow.
We are excited to welcome our Pinnacle and Colgan flying partners
to the AFA family and look forward to the opportunity these Flight
Attendants have to stand together for the best protections for
Flight Attendants during bankruptcy and a better future at
Pinnacle," said Veda Shook, AFA International President.

During the next two-week "showing of interest" period, Pinnacle
and Colgan Flight Attendants will have the opportunity to sign
cards that indicate their interest in gaining AFA representation.

"AFA is the leading voice for Flight Attendants with experts on
staff and extraordinary resources focused entirely on the Flight
Attendant career.  Our union will push back against corporate
efforts to make Flight Attendants pay for management failures.
AFA has the experience to meet these challenges, even in the most
difficult financial times.  With AFA representation, we will work
together, unifying for the best future for all Flight Attendants
at the new Pinnacle Corporation," said Shook.

The Association of Flight Attendants is the world's largest Flight
Attendant union.  Focused 100 percent on Flight Attendant issues,
AFA has been the leader in advancing the Flight Attendant
profession for over 65 years.  Serving as the voice for Flight
Attendants in the workplace, in the aviation industry, in the
media and on Capitol Hill, AFA has transformed the Flight

PINNACLE ENTERTAINMENT: S&P Rates $325 Million Term Loan 'BB+'
--------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned Las Vegas-based
Pinnacle Entertainment Inc.'s $325 million term loan due 2019 its
issue-level rating of 'BB+' and a recovery rating of '1',
indicating its expectation of very high (90%-100%) recovery for
lenders in the event of a payment default. "We also assigned the
company's $325 million subordinated notes due 2022 our issue-level
rating of 'B' and a recovery rating of '6', indicating our
expectation of negligible (0-10%) recovery for lenders in the
event of a payment default. The company used the proceeds to
redeem its 7.5% senior subordinated notes due 2015, repay
borrowings under its revolving credit facility, and for general
corporate purposes," S&P said.

"We recently raised our rating on Pinnacle to 'BB-' from 'B+'
reflecting our belief that Pinnacle has sufficient financial
flexibility to complete its planned development projects while
maintaining credit measures that we view as in line with a higher
rating. The rating outlook is stable. The rating reflects our
assessment of Pinnacle's financial risk profile as 'aggressive'
and its business risk profile as 'fair,' according to our rating
criteria," S&P said.

"Our assessment of Pinnacle's financial risk profile as aggressive
takes into account the company's growth strategy, which we expect
will result in substantial capital spending over the next two
years, as well as sufficient liquidity to complete its planned
development spending. Additionally, while we expect Pinnacle's
leverage to spike to the mid-5x area over the next year, we
believe the company will be able to bring leverage back down to
around 5x by the end of 2013. For full-year 2012, we have factored
in an expectation that Pinnacle's EBITDA will grow in the high-
single-digit percentage area, which incorporates the opening of
L'Auberge Baton Rouge, expected by Labor Day, as well as modest
single digit growth across its existing portfolio," S&P said.

"Our assessment of Pinnacle's business risk profile as fair
reflects the company's geographically diverse portfolio of
properties, notwithstanding locations in competitive markets and a
concentration of cash flows in Louisiana, as well as our
expectation for continued strong performance at Pinnacle's newer
properties," S&P said.

PLANT INSULATION: Asbestos Plan Confirmed; Appeals in Dist. Court
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Bankruptcy Judge Thomas E. Carlson on April 4, 2012, entered an
order confirming the Chapter 11 plan of Plant Insulation Co.

Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reported March 19 on the bankruptcy judge's decision to overrule
objections lodged against the plan by insurance companies that
didn't settle.

Mr. Rochelle recounts that Plant Formerly known as Plant Asbestos
Co. and Asbestos Co. of California, Plant sold the business in
late 2001 and since then was engaged solely in managing asbestos
liability. The reorganization plan creates a trust to handle
asbestos claims.  U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Thomas E. Carlson said the
plan was unanimously accepted by asbestos claimants while opposed
by insurance companies that didn't settle.  Carlson held a nine-
day trial and took evidence from 30 witnesses. He decided the
issues against the objecting insurance companies in an 83-page
opinion on March 16.

According to the Bloomberg report, to uphold the plan, Judge
Carlson said he needed to decide three questions "not fully
resolved under existing law."  For starters, he said that the
requirement for an ongoing business in Section 524(g) of the
Bankruptcy Code was satisfied by merging Plant with another
business.  Second, Carlson said that the plan could cut off
nonsettling insurance companies' contribution claims against
insurers that settled.  Third, he ruled that the best interests
test doesn't require non-settling insurance companies to receive
the full amount of the contribution claims because those rights
would be retained were the case converted to liquidation in
Chapter 7.

Certain insurers, including Fireman's Fund Insurance Company, took
an appeal on the bankruptcy judge's confirmation order.

Plant Insulation and Court-appointed representative for holders of
future asbestos claims have said in a court filing that they
elect, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. Sec. 158(c)(1)(B) and Federal Rule of
Bankruptcy Procedure 8001(e)(1), to have the United Stated
District Court for the Northern District of California hear the
appeal of the Bankruptcy Court's plan confirmation order, which
appeal was filed by certain non-settling insurers on April 10,
2012.

The Bankruptcy Appellate Panel would be unable to resolve the
appeal in question, due to the fact that Bankruptcy Code section
524(g)(3)(A) requires a 524(g) plan confirmation order to be
"issued or affirmed by the district court," according to the plan
proponents.

San Francisco, California-based Plant Insulation Company
manufactured insulation products and services.  The Company filed
for Chapter 11 (Bankr. N.D. Calif. Case No. 09-31347) on May 20,
2009.  Michaeline H. Correa, Esq., Peter J. Benvenutti, Esq.,
and Tobias S. Keller, Esq., at Jones Day represents the Debtor in
its restructuring effort.  The Debtor has assets and debts ranging
from $500 million to $1 billion.


PRINCETON REVIEW: PwC Raises Going Concern Doubt
------------------------------------------------
The Princeton Review, Inc., filed on April 16, 2012, its annual
report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended Dec. 31, 2011.

PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, in Boston, Massachusetts, expressed
substantial doubt about the Princeton Review's ability to continue
as a going concern.  The independent auditors noted that the
Company has suffered recurring losses from operations and has a
net capital deficiency.

The Company reported a net loss of $136.07 million on
$188.75 million of revenues for 2011, compared with a net loss of
$51.74 million on $213.83 million of revenues for 2010.

The Company's balance sheet at Dec. 31, 2011, showed
$228.35 million in total assets, $213.66 million in total
liabilities, Series D preferred stock of $125.43 million, and a
stockholders' deficit of $110.74 million.

A copy of the Form 10-K is available for free at:

Framingham, Massachusetts-based The Princeton Review, Inc.,
entered, on March 26, 2012, into an Asset Purchase Agreement with
an affiliate of Charlesbank Capital Partners pursuant to which,
upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the
Agreement, the Company will sell, and Buyer will buy,
substantially all of the assets of the Company's Higher Education
Readiness ("HER") division, including the name and brand of The
Princeton Review.  The consideration for the sale of the HER
division will be $33.0 million in cash, plus the assumption of
$12.0 million in net working capital liabilities.  The purchase
price will be adjusted to account for any variance from the target
working capital level.  The Company expects to use the net
proceeds from the sale to repay obligations outstanding under its
senior credit facilities with General Electric Capital
Corporation.  Upon consummation of the transaction, the Company
will serve as a holding company for the Penn Foster division, will
cease to be known as The Princeton Review and will formally adopt
a new, to be determined, corporate name.

The Company's business as it existed on and prior to Dec. 31,
2011, was to provide in-person, online and print education
products and services targeting the high school and post-secondary
markets.

RAEBACK CORP: 3rd Cir. to Hear Immigration Case Against Founder
---------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit granted Nigel
Singh's petition for review of a final order of removal based on
his conviction, under 18 U.S.C Sec. 152(3), for knowingly making a
false statement under penalty of perjury in a bankruptcy
proceeding.  The Board of Immigration Appeals determined that Mr.
Singh's conviction was an offense involving fraud or deceit in
which the loss to the victim exceeded $10,000, and hence an
aggravated felony under 8 U.S.C. Sec. 1101(a)(43)(M)(i).  In his
petition, Mr. Singh argues that 18 U.S.C Sec. 152(3) is a perjury
offense that must meet the requirements for perjury-based
aggravated felonies under 8 U.S.C Sec. 1101(a)(43)(S).  Mr. Singh
further argues that, even if assessed under 8 U.S.C Sec.
1101(a)(43)(M)(i), he is not removable because his offense did not
cause an actual loss exceeding $10,000.

The Third Circuit rejects Mr. Singh's first argument, but agrees
that under the unique facts of this case his offense did not cause
an actual loss.  "Because we hold that Sec. 1101(a)(43)(M)(i)
requires an actual, not merely intended, loss, we will grant
Singh's petition and vacate the order of removal," said Circuit
Judge Franklin Stuart Van Antwerpen, who wrote the opinion dated
April 16, 2012, available at http://is.gd/KlqwV9from Leagle.com.

Mr. Singh was born in Jamaica on Aug. 23, 1959, and has been a
lawful permanent resident of the United States since Dec. 7, 1975.
Since that time, he has married a U.S. citizen and raised three
U.S. children.

In 1997, he founded Raeback Corporation, a construction
contracting firm that bid on public works projects as a Minority
Business Enterprise.  During his tenure as Raeback's president,
Mr. Singh was asked on several occasions by a business contact at
a non-MBE firm, U.S. Rebar, to help U.S. Rebar secure government
contracts.  In exchange for kickbacks, Mr. Singh falsely attested
that Raeback was serving as a subcontractor on government projects
when, in fact, U.S. Rebar did the subcontract work.  Under the
scheme, billing was done in Raeback's name and the general
contractor paid Raeback, which then forwarded the payments to U.S.
Rebar, less a 10% kickback.  One of the government entities that
funded these projects was the Port Authority of New York and New
Jersey.

In September 2005, during the course of the Port Authority
project, Raeback filed for bankruptcy due to losses on another
project.  Since the bankruptcy proceedings automatically froze
Raeback's bank accounts, Mr. Singh and his contact agreed on an
arrangement in which the contact would deposit the general
contractor's checks and hold the funds for Mr. Singh during
Raeback's bankruptcy.  Unbeknownst to Mr. Singh, however, his
contact was a confidential informant for the Port Authority, which
had begun investigating U.S. Rebar's arrangement with Raeback.
Rather than holding the funds for Mr. Singh, therefore, the
contact transferred the funds -- roughly $54,000 in total -- to
the Port Authority.

When the Port Authority informed Singh of its investigation in
2007, Mr. Singh participated in two proffer sessions with law
enforcement agents.  During these sessions, agents learned of
Raeback's bankruptcy proceeding.  Agents also learned that
Raeback's bankruptcy petition failed to disclose its revenue
stream from the Port Authority project.  Although the Port
Authority did not take legal action against Mr. Singh, Mr. Singh
was charged by the U.S. Attorney's Office in the Eastern District
of New York for one count of "fail[ing] to disclose all of
Raeback's accounts receivable on Raeback's bankruptcy petition,"
in violation of 18 U.S.C. Sec. 152(3).  Under Sec. 152(3), it is a
crime to "knowingly and fraudulently make[] a false declaration,
certificate, verification, or statement under penalty of perjury"
in relation to a bankruptcy proceeding.

On June 24, 2009, Mr. Singh pled guilty.  As part of the plea
agreement, Mr. Singh agreed to "restitution in the amount of
$54,418.08," to be paid by transferring the money "held by the
Port Authority" to the bankruptcy trustee.

At the time the plea agreement was entered, the U.S. Attorney
believed Mr. Singh's failure to disclose the Port Authority funds
had caused "substantial interference with the administration of
justice," thus warranting a three-point sentencing enhancement
under U.S.S.G. Sec. 2J1.2(b)(2).  Later, however, the U.S.
Attorney informed the sentencing court that, "because the Chapter
11 bankruptcy proceedings are still ongoing and the bankruptcy
trustee will receive the funds which the defendant attempted to
secrete, the defendant's crime will not affect the ultimate
outcome of the bankruptcy proceedings." The U.S. Attorney also
informed the court that the trustee "did not expend any
substantial additional resources as a result of the defendant's
fraud."

Based on these discoveries, the U.S. Attorney's Office dropped its
request for the three-point enhancement.  Mr. Singh, meanwhile,
emphasized the restitution agreement as a factor supporting his
request for a non-incarceratory sentence.

On Dec. 14, 2009, the United States District Court for the Eastern
District of New York sentenced Mr. Singh to ten months in prison.
Although the court's initial judgment did not mention restitution,
an amended judgment issued on Jan. 29, 2010, included a
restitution order "pursuant to [the] plea agreement."  The terms
of the court's restitution order, identical in all relevant
respects to the terms Singh agreed to in the plea, ordered that
"the $54,418.08 currently held by the Port [A]uthority" be
transferred to the trustee.

On March 22, 2010, the funds were transferred to the trustee, and
on Jan. 19, 2011, the trustee distributed Raeback's assets to its
creditors.

Shortly after Mr. Singh began serving his sentence, the Department
of Homeland Security initiated removal proceedings by issuing him
a Notice to Appear.  In the NTA, the DHS charged that Mr. Singh's
Sec. 152(3) conviction involved a "loss or intended loss" to a
victim or victims exceeding $10,000 and thus made him removable as
an aggravated felon under 8 U.S.C. Sec. 1227(a)(2)(A)(iii).  Under
Sec. 1101(a)(43)(M)(i), an aggravated felony is defined as an
"offense that involves fraud or deceit in which the loss to the
victim or victims exceeds $10,000."  The Immigration Judge
sustained DHS's charge and entered an order of removal, which the
BIA affirmed on April 12, 2011.

In an unpublished opinion, the BIA ruled that a conviction under
Sec. 152(3) "categorically involves fraud," as evident by the
Third Court's determination of the crime's essential elements in
United States v. Mathies, 350 F.2d 963 (3d Cir. 1965).  The BIA
also ruled that Mr. Singh's agreement to pay restitution and the
sentencing court's restitution order provided clear and convincing
evidence that Mr. Singh's offense caused a loss to the trustee
exceeding $10,000.

After the BIA issued its order, the Third Circuit granted Mr.
Singh's request for a stay so that the Third Circuit could
consider his petition for review.  In granting the stay, the Third
Circuit cited the Second Circuit's decision in Pierre v. Holder,
588 F.3d 767 (2d Cir. 2009), where an intended loss exceeding
$10,000 was held insufficient, as a matter of law, to satisfy the
loss requirement of subparagraph (M)(i).

The Third Circuit panel consists of Judges Van Antwerpen, Anthony
Joseph Scirica and Thomas L. Ambro.

The case is Nigel St. Ivan Singh, Petitioner, v. Attorney General
of the United States, Respondent, No. 11-1988 (3rd Cir.).


REGIONS FINANCIAL: Moody's Issues Summary Credit Opinion
--------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service issued a summary credit opinion on
Regions Financial Corporation and includes certain regulatory
disclosures regarding its ratings.  The release does not
constitute any change in Moody's ratings or rating rationale for
Regions Financial Corporation and its affiliates.

Moody's current ratings on Regions Financial Corporation and its
affiliates are:

Long Term Issuer rating of Ba3

Senior Unsecured (domestic currency) ratings of Ba3

Subordinate (domestic currency) ratings of B1

Senior Unsecured Shelf (domestic currency) ratings of (P)Ba3

Subordinate Shelf (domestic currency) ratings of (P)B1

Junior Subordinate Shelf (domestic currency) ratings of (P)B2

Preferred Shelf (domestic currency) ratings of (P)B2

Preferred Shelf -- PS2 (domestic currency) ratings of (P)B3

Short Term Issuer (domestic currency) rating of NP

Regions Bank

Long Term Issuer rating of Ba2

Senior Unsecured Bank Note Program (domestic currency) ratings
of (P)Ba2

Long Term Bank Deposits (domestic currency) ratings of Ba1

Long Term Other Senior Obligations ratings of Ba2

Bank Financial Strength ratings of D+

Subordinate Bank Note Program (domestic currency) ratings of
(P)Ba3

Subordinate (domestic currency) ratings of Ba3

Short Term Bank Note Program (domestic currency) ratings of
(P)NP

Short Term Bank Deposits (domestic currency) ratings NP

Short Term Other Senior Obligations ratings of NP

Ratings Rationale

Moody's assigns a standalone bank financial strength rating (BFSR)
of D+ and a long-term deposit rating of Ba1 to Regions Bank. The
holding company, Regions Financial Corporation (Regions), is rated
Ba3 for senior debt. On February 14, 2012, Moody's changed the
rating outlook to stable from negative, reflecting a reduction in
Regions' risk concentrations and signs of stabilization in asset
quality. Specifically, commercial real estate (CRE) and home
equity (HE) have come down 31% and 8%, respectively, from the
prior year-end. Signs of stabilization in asset quality are
reflected in the declining amount of criticized and classified
loans as well as the reduced inflows of new nonaccrual assets
which were down 33% in 2011.

Despite the signs of stabilization, Regions' asset quality is
relatively weak and continues to be its primary credit challenge.
Regions' nonperforming assets (NPAs, including 90+ and accruing
TDRs) remain elevated at 7.91% of loans plus OREO at year-end
2011. Regarding earnings, while Regions' pre-provision, pre-tax
income is in line with similarly-rated US banks, its net income is
weaker reflecting its asset quality challenges.

The rating also incorporates Regions' good franchise in the
Southeast US, which drives the bank's healthy liquidity profile as
core deposits exceed total loans. In addition, Moody's views
Regions' liquidity position at the parent company to be good, as
it maintains sufficient cash on hand to meet its maturing
obligations over the next 24 months without access to dividends
from bank subsidiaries. These franchise strengths support the
current ratings.

Rating Outlook

The rating outlook is stable. The stable outlook reflects the
reduction in Regions' risk concentrations, CRE and HE, and signs
of stabilization in asset quality.

What Could Change the Rating - Up

For positive ratings pressure to emerge, Moody's would need to see
a significant reduction in the level of NPAs as well as improved
earnings.

What Could Change the Rating - Down

Downward rating pressure could result from asset quality
deterioration beyond Moody's expectations, notably if the rate of
new inflows of NPAs significantly increase, negatively affecting
profitability and capital. Regions' remaining exposure to CRE and
HE in its core Southeast footprint expose it to further volatility
in asset quality if a more adverse economic climate were to
develop.

The methodologies used in these ratings were Bank Financial
Strength Ratings: Global Methodology published in February 2007,
Incorporation of Joint-Default Analysis into Moody's Bank Ratings:
A Refined Methodology published in March 2007 and Moody's
Guidelines for Rating Hybrid Securities and Subordinated Debt
published in November 2009.


RESIDENTIAL CAPITAL: Didn't Pay Interest in $473MM Notes
--------------------------------------------------------
Residential Capital, LLC, a subsidiary of Ally Financial Inc., did
not make the semi-annual interest payment that was due April 17,
2012 related to its $1,750,000,000 6.50% Notes due 2013, of which
roughly $473 million of principal is currently outstanding, and
pursuant to their terms currently bear interest at the rate of
8.50% per annum, issued pursuant to an Indenture dated June 24,
2005 (as supplemented) among ResCap and Deutsche Bank Trust
Company Americas, as Trustee.

The amount due is $20.1 million.

The Indenture provides that a failure to pay interest on an
interest payment date does not become an Event of Default unless
such failure continues for a period of 30 days.

At Dec. 31, 2011, Ally had funding arrangements with ResCap that
included $1.0 billion of senior secured credit facilities and a
$1.6 billion line of credit consisting of a $1.1 billion secured
facility and a $500 unsecured facility.  The Senior Secured
Facilities and Line of Credit had a maturity date of April 13,
2012.

On Friday, Ally said it has extended the maturity date of the
Senior Secured Facilities and the $1.1 billion secured facility
under the Line of Credit to May 14.  The unsecured facility under
the Line of Credit was not extended.

Andrew R. Johnson, writing for The Wall Street Journal, notes
Ally, which is 74% owned by the U.S. government, faces mounting
pressure to make a decision on the fate of ResCap, which has been
a drag on the rest of Ally's business and stalled plans for an
initial public offering.  Ally is currently considering a pre-
packaged bankruptcy for ResCap, which could result in the sale of
assets to Fortress Investment Group LLC, The Wall Street Journal
has reported.

WSJ notes Ally has continued to give financial support to ResCap,
primarily through the forgiveness of intercompany loans it
provides to the mortgage subsidiary. However, executives have
stressed ResCap is a separate company that doesn?t have guaranteed
financial support from Ally.

The short-term extension of the ResCap credit facilities "could
signal a potential resolution of Ally?s ownership of ResCap in the
near future, possibly including a bankruptcy filing of ResCap,"
Fitch Ratings said Friday.

WSJ notes ResCap already faces more than $300 million in bond-
related payments due between May 15 and June 1, key dates analysts
are watching for a decision on the company.

                       About Ally Financial

Ally Financial Inc., formerly GMAC Inc. -- http://www.ally.com/--
is one of the world's largest automotive financial services
companies.  The company offers a full suite of automotive
financing products and services in key markets around the world.
Ally's other business units include mortgage operations and
commercial finance, and the company's subsidiary, Ally Bank,
offers online retail banking products.  Ally operates as a bank
holding company.

GMAC obtained a $17 billion bailout from the U.S. government in
exchange for a 56.3% stake.  Private equity firm Cerberus Capital
Management LP keeps 14.9%, while General Motors Co. owns 6.7%.

Ally has tapped Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Citigroup Inc. to
advise on a range of issues, including strategic alternatives for
the mortgage business and repayment of taxpayer funds.

Ally's balance sheet at Sept. 30, 2011, showed $181.95 billion
in total assets, $162.22 billion in total liabilities and
$19.73 billion in total equity.

                              ResCap

According to the Form 10-Q for the quarter ended Sept. 30, 2011,
although Ally's continued actions through various funding and
capital initiatives demonstrate support for ResCap, there can be
no assurances for future capital support.  Consequently, there
remains substantial doubt about ResCap's ability to continue as a
going concern.  Should Ally no longer continue to support the
capital or liquidity needs of ResCap or should ResCap be unable to
successfully execute other initiatives, it would have a material
adverse effect on ResCap's business, results of operations, and
financial position.

Ally said it has extensive financing and hedging arrangements with
ResCap that could be at risk of nonpayment if ResCap were to file
for bankruptcy.  At Sept. 30, 2011, Ally had $1.9 billion in
secured financing arrangements with ResCap of which $1.2 billion
in loans was utilized.  At Sept. 30, 2011, the hedging
arrangements were fully collateralized.  Amounts outstanding under
the secured financing and hedging arrangements fluctuate.  If
ResCap were to file for bankruptcy, ResCap's repayments of its
financing facilities, including those with Ally, could be slower.
In addition, Ally could be an unsecured creditor of ResCap to the
extent that the proceeds from the sale of Ally's collateral are
insufficient to repay ResCap's obligations to the Company.  It is
possible that other ResCap creditors would seek to recharacterize
Ally's loans to ResCap as equity contributions or to seek
equitable subordination of Ally's claims so that the claims of
other creditors would have priority over Ally's claims.

Ally also said that, should ResCap file for bankruptcy, Ally's
$331 million investment related to ResCap's equity position would
likely be reduced to zero.  If a ResCap bankruptcy were to occur
and a substantial amount of Ally's credit exposure is not repaid
to the Company, it could have an adverse impact on Ally's near-
term net income and capital position, but Ally does not believe it
would have a materially adverse impact on Ally's consolidated
financial position over the longer term.

                         *     *     *

In mid-April 2012, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it is
maintaining its issuer credit and issue-level ratings on ResCap on
CreditWatch with negative implications, where they had been placed
Nov. 10, 2011.

"ResCap announced a one-month extension to the maturity dates of
two senior credit facilities provided by its parent, Ally
Financial. The original maturity date for these facilities was
April 13. 'The CreditWatch on ResCap was based in part on our view
that the company might not have access to sufficient liquidity to
cover obligations under the maturing facilities, along with
uncertainties associated with the potential for ResCap's parent to
extend the facilities or provide some other form of support,' said
Standard & Poor's credit analyst Thomas Connell. The facilities
are now due on May 14. (An unsecured, and undrawn, component of
one of the facilities was not subject to the maturity extension),"
S&P said.

"In February, we lowered our issuer credit rating on ResCap to
'CC' while maintaining the ratings on CreditWatch negative,
reflecting our expectation of limited, if any, future support for
ResCap from Ally. ResCap's failure to meet its obligations under
the maturing facilities could trigger bankruptcy. Under our
criteria, a company rated 'CC' is 'highly vulnerable,'" S&P said.

"While Ally has provided support to ResCap at various times in the
past, recent statements by Ally management have not provided a
basis for expectations of future support," S&P said.


RESIDENTIAL CAPITAL: Moody's Cuts Sr. Unsec. Debt Rating to 'C'
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded the senior unsecured debt
rating of Residential Capital LLC (ResCap) to C from Ca, and the
rating of its junior secured notes to C from Caa3. The ratings of
ResCap's parent, Ally Financial Inc. (Ally; B1 stable) are not
affected by the ResCap downgrades.

Ratings Rationale

The downgrades follow ResCap's announcement that it did not make a
required April 17 interest payment on its senior notes due April
2013. Unless paid within 30 days, the missed payment will cause a
default of the notes. In Moody's view, ResCap's decision to miss
the payment indicates a higher risk of default, which is reflected
in the rating downgrades.

ResCap has required support from its parent Ally for some time,
due to portfolio underperformance, mortgage repurchase expenses,
and liquidity issues. As recently as January 2012, Ally provided
capital support to ResCap by forgiving $197 million of
indebtedness after ResCap breached its tangible net worth
covenant. On April 13, 2012, Ally said that it extended the
maturity of $2.1 billion of credit facilities it provides to
ResCap by one month to May 14, 2012. Moody's believes the short-
term nature of the extension increases the uncertainty of further
support from Ally, without which, ResCap would unlikely be able to
continue as a going concern. Although Ally's plans with respect to
ResCap are not yet clear, Moody's believes that creditors' near-
term risk of loss has increased.

Ally's ratings have been constrained by its support of ResCap but
are unaffected by the ResCap downgrades. In Moody's view, actions
by Ally to definitively and substantially reduce its exposures to
ResCap could be positive for Ally's credit profile, if the
associated costs are within reason. Moody's will reassess Ally's
credit profile as ResCap's status and relationship with Ally
continues to evolve.

ResCap's junior secured notes have a junior claim behind the
senior secured credit facilities provided by Ally. With the
downgrade, these secured notes are now rated the same as ResCap's
unsecured debt because Moody's does not believe that these notes
are likely to experience a significantly enhanced recovery in a
default scenario, due to the small amount and low quality of
eligible collateral.

Previously, on February 7, 2011, Moody's upgraded the junior
secured and senior unsecured ratings of ResCap to Caa3 and Ca,
respectively, from C; and upgraded the senior unsecured ratings of
Ally and its supported subsidiaries to B1 from B3.

Residential Capital LLC, an indirect subsidiary of Ally Financial
Inc., is an originator and servicer of residential mortgage loans.

The principal methodology used in this rating was Finance Company
Global Rating Methodology published in March 2012.

ROTHSTEIN ROSENFELDT: Dan Marino Foundation Sued by Trustee
-----------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that the Dan Marino Foundation, founded in 1992 to aid
children and young adults with autism, was sued for $258,500 by
the trustee liquidating the law firm once run by Scott Rothstein.
The complaint filed April 15 in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Fort
Lauderdale, Florida claims that the foundation received payments
from Rothstein in 2007 and 2008, before the discovery of his
fraud.  The foundation was created by Dan Marino, a retired
quarterback for the Miami Dolphins who was elected to the
professional football Hall of Fame in 2005.

                      About Rothstein Rosenfeldt

Scott Rothstein, co-founder of law firm Rothstein Rosenfeldt Adler
PA -- http://www.rra-law.com/-- has been suspected of running a
$1.2 billion Ponzi scheme.  U.S. authorities claimed in a civil
forfeiture lawsuit filed November 9, 2009, that Mr. Rothstein, the
firm's former chief executive officer, sold investments in non-
existent legal settlements.  Mr. Rothstein pleaded guilty to five
counts of conspiracy and wire fraud on January 27, 2010.

Creditors of Rothstein Rosenfeldt Adler signed a petition sending
the Florida law firm to bankruptcy (Bankr. S.D. Fla. Case No.
09-34791).  The petitioners include Bonnie Barnett, who says she
lost $500,000 in legal settlement investments; Aran Development,
Inc., which said it lost $345,000 in investments; and trade
creditor Universal Legal, identified as a recruitment firm, which
said it is owed $7,800.  The creditors alleged being owed money
invested in lawsuit settlements.

Herbert M. Stettin, the state-court appointed receiver for
Rothstein Rosenfeldt, was officially carried over as the
Chapter 11 trustee in the involuntary bankruptcy case.

On June 10, 2010, Mr. Rothstein was sentenced to 50 years in
prison.


SAINT CATHERINE: Liquidating under Chapter 7
--------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that Saint Catherine's Medical Center of Fountain Springs,
a non-operating 107-bed hospital in Ashland, Pennsylvania,
survived only nine days in Chapter 11.  U.S. Bankruptcy Judge John
J. Thomas on April 18 approved an April 16 motion motion from the
Chapter 11 trustee seeking conversion of the case to a liquidation
in Chapter 7.

According to the report, the Chapter 11 trustee, who was appointed
to take over management immediately after the Chapter 11 filing,
said the hospital has $5.8 million in debt and no possibility of
successful reorganization.  He said the employees weren't paid for
five weeks' work.  The Chapter 11 trustee said that no hospital in
the
surrounding area was interested in acquiring the facility.  It
was shut by state regulators who found violations of health laws.

Saint Catherine Hospital of Pennsylvania, LLC, dba Saint Catherine
Medical Center of Fountain Springs filed a Chapter 11 petition
(Bankr. M.D. Pa. Case No. 12-02073) on April 9, 2012.  The Debtor
estimated under $50,000 in assets and liabilities.

The Debtor is represented by John H. Doran, Esq., at Doran &
Doran, P.C., in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, serves as counsel.


SCHIFF NUTRITION: Moody's Assigns 'B1' CFR; Outlook Stable
----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned first time ratings to Schiff
Nutrition International, Inc., including a B1 Corporate Family
Rating and a B2 Probability of Default rating. Moody's also
assigned a B1 rating to $200 million of senior secured credit
facilities, comprised of a $50 million 5-year revolver and a $150
million 7-year term loan. A Speculative Grade Liquidity rating of
SGL-3 was also assigned. The outlook for the ratings is stable.
Proceeds of the issuance were used to facilitate the $150 million
cash purchase of immune support supplement company Airborne(R)from
GF Capital Private Equity Fund.

Moody's assigned the following ratings:

Corporate Family Rating: B1

Probability of Default Rating: B2

$50 million senior secured revolver expiring 2017 rated B1
(LGD 3, 33%)

$150 million senior secured term loan due 2019 rated B1
(LGD 3, 33%)

Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating of SGL-3

The outlook is stable.

All ratings are subject to the conclusion of the syndication as
proposed and Moody's review of final documentation.

Ratings Rationale

Schiff's B1 Corporate Family Rating reflects its relatively small
scale and the inherent business risks of negative publicity and
product liability associated with the vitamin, mineral and
nutrition supplement (VMNS) industry. The rating is also
constrained by significant customer concentration with Costco and
Walmart, as well as a certain amount of event risk of debt-funded
acquisitions as the industry consolidates. Schiff also operates in
an intensely competitive product category with very large
competitors. The rating takes into account the relatively balanced
branded portfolio of VMNS products and favorable demographic
trends supporting continued growth in the industry. Further, the
rating incorporates Schiff's good EBITA margins, modest leverage
and low-capital expenditures. Schiff's proven ability to innovate
and differentiate its branded products, coupled with their
longstanding customer relationships in the mass retail channel are
credit positives that support the B1 Corporate Family Rating.
Moody's believes that the favorable demographic trends for VMNS
products will continue to grow and Schiff's product categories are
well positioned to benefit from those trends.

The stable outlook reflects Moody's view that Schiff will continue
to benefit from demographic trends which support demand for its
products, along with Schiff's demonstrated ability to innovate and
build its brands. This also incorporates Moody's view that
leverage and coverage will remain good over the next 12 to 18
months. It also reflects Moody's view that the company's modest
size and high customer concentration are not likely to materially
improve over the next 12-18 months to levels that would support a
higher rating.

For an upgrade, Schiff would need to increase its scale
significantly beyond its current level and demonstrate strong
organic growth and good liquidity. Financial metrics would also
need to remain strong such that debt-to-EBITDA can be sustained
below 3.5 times and EBITA-to-interest sustained above 3 times.

Schiff's ratings could be downgraded if the company's financial
performance deteriorates as a result of unexpected weakness in its
portfolio, material supply chain disruptions, aggressive debt
funded acquisitions, or any material product recalls or liability
claims. Erosion in interest coverage, leverage sustained above 5
times, or any deterioration in liquidity are all additional
factors that could contribute to a downgrade.

The principal methodology used in rating Schiff Nutrition
International, Inc. was the Global Packaged Goods Industry
Methodology published in July 2009. Other methodologies used
include Loss given Default for Speculative-Grade Non-Financial
Companies in the U.S., Canada and EMEA published in June 2009.

Schiff Nutrition International, Inc., headquartered in Salt Lake
City, Utah, develops, manufactures, markets and distributes
branded and private label vitamins, minerals and nutritional
supplements in the U.S. and abroad. Key brands include Schiff Move
Free(R), Schiff(R)Vitamins, Schiff MegaRed(R), Schiff Mega-D3(R),
Tiger's Milk(R), Schiff Sustenex(R), and Schiff Digestive
Advantage(R). For the twelve months ending February 29, 2012 the
company posted pro forma revenues of about $316 million.


SCHIFF NUTRITION: S&P Rates Corporate Credit 'B'; Outlook Stable
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Rating Services assigned its 'B' corporate
credit rating to Salt Lake City, Utah-based Schiff Nutrition Group
Inc. (Schiff). The outlook is stable.

"At the same time, we assigned 'B' issue ratings to the company's
$150 million seven-year senior secured term loan B (due 2019) and
$50 million revolving credit agreement (due 2017). The recovery
rating on both facilities is '3', indicating our expectation for
meaningful (50%-70%) recovery in the event of payment default. The
facilities are subject to financial covenants commencing on Aug.
31, 2012," S&P said.

"The ratings on vitamin, mineral, and health supplement market
player Schiff Nutrition Group Inc. (Schiff), which recently
acquired Airborne Inc. (Airborne), reflect our assessment that the
company has an 'aggressive' financial profile and 'vulnerable'
business profile," S&P said.

"We believe the company's cash flow generation will continue to be
somewhat modest and its asset protection will be weak," said
Standard & Poor's credit analyst Mark Salierno. "However, we
believe credit measures will improve modestly over the next 15
months."

"Our characterization of Schiff's financial policy as aggressive
is based on controlling voting power--85% in aggregate, shared
with Weider Health and Fitness (WHF)--of a financial sponsor, TPG
Growth, which we believe may influence financial governance toward
shareholder-friendly decision-making; in fiscal 2010, Schiff
engaged in a $29 million special dividend and in fiscal 2011 the
company issued a $20 million special dividend," S&P said.

"While the company has no stated dividend policy, we expect the
company to continue its practice of dividends," said Mr. Salierno.
"We also expect the company to opportunistically pursue tuck-in
acquisitions, funded through a combination of internally generated
cash flow, additional debt, and sponsor support."

"The outlook is stable. We expect Schiff's operating performance
and key credit measures to be relatively steady despite the
integration of the Airborne acquisition over the next year. We
estimate leverage will decline to the low-3x area by the end of
fiscal 2013," S&P said.

SHOREBANK CORP: June 13 Hearing on Chapter 11 Plan
---------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that ShoreBank Corp., the owner of a failed bank, won
approval of the disclosure explaining its reorganization plan.
The Debtor will seek confirmation of the Plan at a hearing June
13.  The disclosure statement, approved by the bankruptcy judge
Last week, shows that unsecured creditors should have a 20 percent
recovery on their $3.9 million in claims.

The report relates that ShoreBank sought Chapter 11 protection
after working out a settlement where the Federal Deposit Insurance
Corp. will receive $8.5 million from a $10.7 million tax refund.
The bank holding company expects there will eventually be $11
million for distribution to creditors.

The report notes that because holders of subordinated notes are to
receive nothing for their $37.6 million in claims, senior
creditors with claims totaling $12.3 million are in line for an 83
percent recovery, according to the disclosure statement.

                          About ShoreBank

Organized in 1973 and incorporated under the state of Illinois,
The ShoreBank Corporation was America's first and leading
community development and environmental bank holding company.  SBK
was a registered bank holding company for, among others, its
subsidiary, ShoreBank in Chicago, a state chartered non-member
bank.  The Bank was subject to oversight and regulation by its
primary regulator, the Illinois Department of Financial and
Professional Regulation.

On Aug. 20, 2010, the Bank was closed by the IDFPR, and the
Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. was named receiver.  The FDIC sold
substantially all of the Bank's assets to Urban Partnership Bank.
SBK's principal asset and source of income was its investment in
the Bank.  The Bank Closure has had a significant adverse affect
on SBK's liquidity, capital resources, and financial condition.
On Jan. 9, 2012, SBK and 11 affiliates commenced Chapter 11 cases
(Bankr. N.D. Ill. Lead Case No. 12-00581) to liquidate their
remaining assets and wind down their estates.

The case was initially assigned to Judge Jacqueline P. Cox.  On
Jan. 10, she recused herself and the case was sent to Judge A.
Benjamin Goldgar's chambers.

George Panagakis, Esq., leads a team of lawyers at Skadden, Arps,
Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP, who represent the Debtors.  Garden City
Group Inc. serves as the Debtors' claims agent.  The petition was
signed by George P. Surgeon, president and CEO.

The Debtors filed their Chapter 11 Plan of Liquidation on Jan. 31,
2012.


ST. VINCENT HOSPITAL: Moody's Cuts Rating to 'Ba2'; Outlook Neg.
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has downgraded to Ba2 from Baa3 the
rating assigned to St. Vincent Hospital d/b/a St. Vincent Health
Center (SVHC), the primary operating entity of St. Vincent Health
System (SVHS). The ratings are removed from Watchlist where they
were placed on February 29, 2012; the rating outlook is negative.

Ratings Rationale

The downgrade to Ba2 from Baa3 is driven by continued weakening of
SVHS's financial profile through unaudited 9 months fiscal year
(FY) 2012, with interim statements showing a marked decline in
cash and material operating losses driven by declining marketshare
and admissions. The assignment of the negative rating outlook
reflects Moody's belief that the decline in performance and
increased competition continue to place significant pressures on
the credit and that successful execution of turnaround strategies
and projected outcomes leave little room for missteps.

Challenges

* Weak operating performance, following over 5 years of
inconsistent results, with operating income loss through 9 months
FY 2012 of $6.3 million (-2.3% operating margin) following a loss
of $9.5 million (-2.7% operating margin) in FY 2011

* Weak balance sheet measures at the system, with 69 days cash on
hand at 9 months FY 2012 (though 80 days within the Obligated
Group) and 53.7% cash to debt, a marked decline from 90 days cash
on hand and 67.3% cash to debt at June 30, 2011 (Baa3 median is 97
days cash on hand and 83.8%). Management reports the decline in
cash is in part due to technical problems related to
implementation of new Health Insurance Portability and
Accountability Act (HIPAA) requirements.

* Leveraged debt profile with 13.1x debt-to-cash flow based on
annualized 9 months FY 2012 and 13.3x at FY 2011 (Baa3 median is
4.9x)

* SVHS has 52% variable debt exposure; current financial profile
shows limited headroom under letter of credit bank financial
covenants: minimum 80 days cash on hand measured annually, 66%
debt to capitalization measured at fiscal yearend (FYE) and 1.15
debt service coverage measured each fiscal quarter. Should SVHS
breach a covenant, the bank could accelerate the debt

* Competitive market which is intensifying with University of
Pittsburgh Medical Center's acquisition of SVHS's competitor
Hamot; SVHS's admissions declined by 3% in FY 2011 and market
share declined through 1Q calendar 2011 to 46.0% from 48% in
calendar 2010. Admissions through 9 months FY 2012 fell 15% and
patient days fell by 13% compared to the prior year.

* Modest service area demographics, with aging population and
declining population over past 10 years

Strengths

* Significant market presence in a fifteen county primary service
area (wide breadth of clinical services and Medicare Case Mix
Index 1.77).

* SVHC continues to benefit from referrals from the other members
of the Vantage Health Group, a coalition of thirteen healthcare
organizations in Western Pennsylvania and has experienced recent
success in recruiting physician practices. Management also reports
losses from employed physician has been reduced by $1 million
through 9 months annualized for FY 2012.

* Pension plan frozen in FY 2010 and funded as a cash balance
plan.

* Medical assistance modernization reimbursements in PA began in
FY 2011, with net impact for SVHS approximately $5 million
annually expected through FY 2013.

Outlook

The negative rating outlook reflects Moody's belief that SVHS
continued operational struggles and declining balance sheet
liquidity heighten letter of credit (LOC) bank risk, as SVHS has
limited flexibility to repay a material amount of debt if a
tripped debt covenant accelerated amortization of the debt.

What could change the rating - UP

Sustained and material operating improvement resulting in
strengthened liquidity and debt measures; ability to successfully
implement turnaround plans and counteract declining marketshare.

What could change the rating - DOWN

Further downgrade action could occur if a future covenant
violation triggers accelerated repayment on the LOC. Negative
rating pressure would also result from weaker financial trajectory
or further cash decline; additional debt without commensurate
increase in cash flow and liquidity growth; continued market share
and volume loss.

The principal methodology used in this rating was Not-For-Profit
Healthcare Rating Methodology published in March 2012.


SK FOODS: District Court Cancels April 23 Hearing in Appeal
-----------------------------------------------------------
District Judge Lawrence K. Karlton on Tuesday removed from the
court's calendar an April 23, 2012 hearing on an appeal in a
dispute involving Bradley D. Sharp, Chapter 11 Trustee of SK Foods
LP and various entities including Cary Scott Collins, the Bank of
Montreal, as administrative agent to the Debtors' lenders, the and
Internal Revenue Service.

Judge Karlton said that counsel for appellees, Farella Braun +
Martel LLP, has moved in the Bankruptcy Court to withdraw as
counsel and has similarly moved in some, but not all, of the
Bankruptcy Court appeals.  A hearing on that motion is scheduled
for April 30, 2012 in the Bankruptcy Court.

Judge Karlton directed Farella to file a letter with the District
Court by April 24 advising the District court whether they seek a
withdrawal from the appeal.

A copy of Judge Karlton's April 17 order is available at
http://is.gd/ClTfhGfrom Leagle.com.

Last week, Judge Karlton vacated an April 18 hearing in one of the
the appellate cases, Bradley D. Sharp, Chapter 11 Trustee,
Appellant, v. SSC Farms 1, LLC, et al., Appellees, Civ. No. S-12-
0775 (E.D. Calif.).

On March 23, 2012, Cary Collins and his accounting firm, Collins
and Associates, filed the appeal from the adversary proceeding,
Sharp v. SSC Farms, I (In re SK Foods, L.P.), Bankr. 9-2692.  On
March 28, 2012, Collins sought from the District Court an
emergency stay pending their appeal of what they say is a final
ruling of the Bankruptcy Court.  Collins et al. assert that absent
the stay, they will be subject to a $1,000 per day fine imposed by
a separate contempt order issued by the Bankruptcy Court.

Judge Karlton said there are numerous procedural flaws in the
appeal and the emergency motion that render the District Court
unable to decipher what Collins et al. want, or how the relief
they seem to want could afford them any relief.  The judge noted
that Collins et al. do not explain how granting them the relief
they seek will purge the separate contempt.

Judge Karlton denied Collins et al.'s emergency motion and gave
them until April 19 to file documents reflecting that they are
appealing a final bankruptcy court order.  If they fail to do so,
the Clerk of the Court is directed to dismiss the appeal.

Judge Karlton temporarily stayed the bankruptcy court's order
imposing a $1,000 per day fine on Collins et al. until further
order.

                          About SK Foods

SK Foods LP ran a tomato processing facility.  It filed for
Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection after being dropped by its
lending group.  Creditors filed an involuntary Chapter 11 petition
against SK Foods LP and affiliate RHM Supply/ Specialty Foods Inc.
(Bankr. E.D. Calif. Case No. 09-29161) on May 8, 2009.  SK Foods
had said it was preparing to file a voluntary Chapter 11 petition
when the creditors initiated the involuntary case.  The Company
later put itself into Chapter 11 and Bradley D. Sharp was
appointed as Chapter 11 trustee.  The Debtors were authorized on
June 26, 2009, to sell the business for $39 million cash to a U.S.
arm of Singapore food processor Olam International Ltd.  The
replacement cost for the assets is $139 million, according to
Olam.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on Feb. 19, 2010, a
federal grand jury returned a seven-count indictment charging
Frederick Scott Salyer, former owner and CEO of SK Foods, with
violations of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations
Act, in connection with his direction of various schemes to
defraud SK Foods' corporate customers through bribery and food
misbranding and adulteration, and with wire fraud and obstruction
of justice.

SUGARHOUSE HSP: Moody's Upgrades CFR/PDR to 'B2'; Outlook Stable
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investor's Service upgraded SugarHouse HSP Gaming Prop.
Mezz, LP's Corporate Family and Probability of Default ratings to
B2 from B3. The company's second lien notes were also raised to B2
from B3. The rating outlook is stable.

The upgrade of HSP considers the successful ramp-up of the
company's SugarHouse Casino located in Philadelphia, PA near the
Delaware River waterfront. Since opening in September 2010,
SugarHouse has achieved substantial market share and win per unit
statistics in Eastern Pennsylvania as well as a relatively high
EBITDA margin demonstrating that its ramp up was not only
successful in terms of revenue, but also in terms of
profitability. Additionally, while a planned expansion is expected
to keep the company's leverage high at over 5 times, Moody's
believes the expansion has favorable risk/reward characteristics
that would ultimately enhance HSP's competitive position in terms
of product quality and quantity, and improve the company's longer-
term earnings potential.

Ratings upgraded:

Corporate Family Rating, to B2 from B3

Probability of Default Rating, to B2 from B3

$235 million second lien notes due 2016, to B2 (LGD 4, 55%) from
B3 (LGD 4, 55%)

Ratings Rationale

HSP's B2 Corporate Family Rating reflects the company's small,
single asset profile along with Moody's opinion that gaming
expansion by competitors in the northeastern U.S. will continue,
some of which could have a negative impact on SugarHouse's
operating results. Also considered is Moody's expectation that HSP
will pursue a partially debt-financed expansion. As a result,
debt/EBITDA (including Moody's standard analytical adjustments as
well as the application of 75% equity credit to the company's
original $159 million preferred equity interest) will likely
remain high at above 5.0 times.

Positive ratings consideration is given to the population density
and favorable demographics of SugarHouse's primary market area.
Moody's believes SugarHouse's favorable location and healthy
growth trends in the Philadelphia market are the primary reasons
for the casinos successful ramp-up in terms of revenue and
profitability.

The stable rating outlook reflects Moody's expectation that
SugarHouse's primary market area will continue to provide enough
customer traffic and demand for the casino to sustain its
operating margins and its ability to generate positive free cash
flow. The stable outlook also considers HSP's relaxed debt
maturity profile. There are no material scheduled debt maturities
until 2016 when the company's $235 million second lien notes
mature (excluding the 8.5 million in vendor financing payable
through September 2014) .

Ratings improvement is limited at this time given Moody's view
that there is a high probability that HSP will issue additional
debt under its permitted debt basket to fund a future expansion.
Longer-term, Moody's would consider an upgrade if HSP continues to
maintain EBITDA margins and win per unit levels at or above
competing casino facilities and the company demonstrates the
ability and willingness to maintain debt/EBITDA at or below 4.0
times.

Ratings could be lowered if SugarHouse's win per unit statistics
for slots and table games, and monthly gaming revenues as reported
by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board, exhibit a material
decline for any reason. Ratings could also be lowered if the
company does not demonstrate the ability to generate positive free
cash flow. Independent of any change to HSP's Corporate Family
Rating, and absent any other material changes to Moody's view of
the company's operating performance and capital structure, the
rating on the 2nd lien notes would likely be lowered one-notch if
the company uses its permitted debt basket to issue debt that
ranks ahead of the proposed notes to fund an expansion.

The principal methodology used in rating SugarHouse was the Global
Gaming Industry Methodology published in December 2009. Other
methodologies used include Loss Given Default for Speculative-
Grade Non-Financial Companies in the U.S., Canada and EMEA
published in June 2009.


TELKONET INC: Delays Annual Report Due to Financial Restatements
----------------------------------------------------------------
Management of Telkonet, Inc., has recommended, and the Company's
Audit Committee has concluded, that the Company's audited
consolidated financial statements for the year ended Dec. 31,
2010, included in its 2010 annual report on Form 10-K, as well as
the interim consolidated financial statements for 2011 and 2010
included in its quarterly reports on Form 10-Q for the quarters
ended March 31, 2011, June 30, 2011 and Sept. 30, 2011, will need
to be restated as a result of certain adjustments.

The restatement will be required in large part due to the
aggregate impact of the Company's under accrual of sales tax,
interest and penalties, which amounted to approximately $815,000
for the periods including and prior to Sept. 30, 2011.  In
addition, during the course of the Company's 2011 financial close
process, management has become aware of other potential
adjustments related to previously reported financial information
and is in the process of completing such analysis.  The Company
currently anticipates that these other adjustments will include
adjustments to: deferred lease liability; accrued expenses;
accrued warranty and accumulated depreciation. The process of
preparing the audited financial statements to be included in the
Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended Dec. 31, 2011, including the
Company's evaluation of goodwill for impairment, is on-going and
the identification of additional adjustments is possible.

The restatement process has resulted in delays in obtaining and
compiling the financial data necessary to complete the restatement
and prepare the Company's financial statements for the fiscal year
ended Dec. 31, 2011.  As a result, the Company has been unable to
complete the preparation and review of its Annual Report on Form
10-K for the period ended Dec. 31, 2011, in time to file it by the
prescribed deadline of March 30, 2012, without unreasonable effort
and expense.  The Company is working diligently in order to file
its Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended Dec. 31, 2011, by no later
than the fifteenth calendar day following the prescribed deadline,
or April 16, 2012; however the Company can provide no assurance
that it will be able to file its Form 10-K within such time
period.

                           About Telkonet

Milwaukee, Wisconsin-based Telkonet, Inc. is a clean technology
company that develops and manufactures proprietary energy
efficiency and smart grid networking technology.

Company disclosed voting results for its annual meeting of
Stockholders held on March 6, 2012.

At the annual meeting of stockholders of the Company held on
March 6, 2012, the Company sought stockholder approval of, among
other things, (1) amendments and restatements to the Company's
Restated Certificate of Incorporation that would provide for (a)
an increase in the authorized number of shares of the Company's

par value of the Company's Common Stock from $1.00 per share to

On March 9, 2012, the Company disclosed that the above-referenced
actions were approved by the requisite vote of the Company's
stockholders.  It has since come to the Company's attention that
the Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation attached to
the proxy statement distributed to stockholders prior to the

State a Certificate of Correction so that the 2012 Restated
Certificate of Incorporation, which was filed with that office on
March 7, 2012, will be deemed null and void.  As a result, the
Series A Convertible Preferred Stock, par value $1.00 per share,
of the Company, which would have been converted into shares of

Certificate of Incorporation with the office of the Delaware
Secretary of State, remain outstanding.

business in Harris County, Texas.  In 1999, TransTexas was
suffering significant liquidity problems, found itself deeply in
debt.  It filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection (Bankr. D.
Del. Case No. 99-889).  The company was reorganized in the
bankruptcy and emerged under a court-approved bankruptcy plan that
became effective in March 2000.

Under the 2000 plan, certain creditors of TransTexas -- the Senior
Noteholders -- received both Senior Secured Notes and Senior
Preferred Stock.  The notes were to be redeemed in 2005 for
$200 million.  The Senior Noteholders also elected four of the
five members of the company's board of directors, and those
directors hired John R. Stanley as TransTexas' CEO.

After the 2000 reorganization, TransTexas continued to have
financial problems, and by the end of 2002, had it again filed for
bankruptcy (Bankr. S.D. Tex. Case No. 02-21926).  U.S. Bank was
named the liquidating trustee under the terms of a Senior
Noteholders Liquidating Trust Agreement established in connection

TRIBUNE CO: Court Sets June 7 Plan Confirmation Hearing
-------------------------------------------------------
Judge Kevin J. Carey of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Delaware signed on April 17, 2012, an order approving
the supplemental disclosure statement relating to the Fourth
Amended Joint Plan of Reorganization for Tribune Company and its
debtor affiliates.

Judge Carey determined that the Supplemental Disclosure Document
contains adequate information with the meaning of Section 1125 of
the Bankruptcy Code.

The Court will convene a hearing on June 7, 2012, at 3:00 p.m.,
to consider confirmation of the Debtors' Plan.  Objections to
confirmation of the Plan are due on or before May 21.

At the April 16, 2012 hearing, the bankruptcy judge said he will
approve the supplemental disclosure statement subject to certain
minor changes.  Following the Court's ruling at the hearing, the
parties conferred, and consistent with the Court's ruling, agreed
upon certain modifications that were made to the Fourth Amended
DCL Plan and accompanying supplemental disclosure document.

Subsequently, Tribune; the Official Committee of Unsecured
Creditors; Oaktree Capital Management, L.P.; Angelo, Gordon &
Co., L.P.; and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., submitted to Judge
Carey on April 17, 2012, a modified Fourth Amended Plan and
accompanying supplemental disclosure document to reflect those
modifications.

Specifically, the Plan provided that there will be no more than
three members of the Litigation Trust Advisory Board, consisting
of (i) Wilmington Trust Company, (ii) Deutsche Bank Trust Company
Americas, and (iii) a member of the Creditors' Committee that
will be a beneficiary of Litigation Trust Interests but excluding
the Senior Loan Agent.  Wilmington Trust and Deutsche Bank will
each have the right to name a party to serve as its designee on
the Litigation Trust Advisory Board; provided that if such
designee ceases for any reason to be a member of the Litigation
Trust Advisory Board, then, so long as WTC or Deutsche Bank, as
applicable, continue to serve as Indenture Trustee, it will have
the right to appoint a successor member of the Litigation Trust
Advisory Board to replace its previous designee.  Each member of
the Litigation Trust Advisory Board, including any designee, will
be identified in the Plan Supplement.

US POSTAL: CCAGW Denounces Senate for "Mailing in" Bailout
----------------------------------------------------------
The Council for Citizens Against Government Waste slammed S. 1789,
the 21st Century Postal Service Act, for delaying crucial United
States Postal Service (USPS) reforms, including the closure of
3,700 post offices and 250 mail processing facilities, as well as
ending six-day mail delivery.

The bill, which was altered before it reached the Senate floor,
would reduce the number of possible processing facility closures
from 252 to 125, add several complex requirements to the process
for post office closings, and require USPS to wait two years
before stopping Saturday mail delivery.  In addition, the Postal
Service would receive an $11 billion cash infusion drawn from
"overpayments" made in previous years to a retirement fund.

These band-aids will not stop the massive flow of red ink at USPS,
which lost $8.5 billion in fiscal year (FY) 2010 and $5.1 billion
in FY 2011.  The 2011 loss would have been dramatically larger if
Congress had not postponed $5.5 billion in scheduled payments to
prefund USPS's retiree health benefits.  An April 12, 2010
Government Accountability Office report stated that the USPS
business model "is not viable due to USPS's inability to reduce
costs sufficiently in response to continuing mail volume and
revenue declines."  Decreased demand has resulted in dwindling
incomes; first class mail, which makes up more than half of USPS
revenue, peaked in 2006, and fell 20 percent over the next four
years.  On April 22, 2010, former Postmaster General (PmG) John
Potter announced that the USPS will lose $238 billion over the
next 10 years.  In today's Portland Daily Sun, S. 1789 co-sponsor
Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) acknowledged that the Postal Service
"is in danger of dying."

"The legislation that the Senate will consider today flies in the
face of the massive fiscal crisis at the USPS," said CAGW
President Tom Schatz.  "As people increasingly communicate and pay
bills electronically, the agency's role has diminished.  As a
result, the size and scope of USPS must shrink.  Postponing the
termination of Saturday delivery and the shutdown of extraneous
postal facilities, both of which would save the Postal Service
billions, will doom the agency to bankruptcy."

In a Nov. 21, 2011 speech before the National Press Club, PmG
Patrick Donahoe pointed out that "roughly 25,000 out of our 32,000
Post Offices operate at a loss."  He added that thousands of post
offices have less than $20,000 in annual revenue yet cost more
than $60,000 to operate, and many of these unprofitable locations
are a few miles away from another post office.  He bemoaned
negative congressional response to even the slightest effort to
close any post office, as well as interference in other proposals
to address the USPS deficit.

"When the boat is sinking, no one stands around debating how to
get rid of the water," added Schatz.  "Everyone grabs the biggest
bucket on board and starts bailing. Instead, lawmakers are kicking
the problem down the road, which will eventually deliver the bill
to taxpayers to finance this rescue."

                   About U.S. Postal Service

A self-supporting government enterprise, the U.S. Postal Service
is the only delivery service that reaches every address in the
nation, 151 million residences, businesses and Post Office Boxes.
The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses,
and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund
its operations.  With 32,000 retail locations and the most
frequently visited website in the federal government, usps.com,
the Postal Service has annual revenue of more than $65 billion and
delivers nearly 40 % of the world's mail. If it were a private
sector company, the U.S. Postal Service would rank 35th in the
2011 Fortune 500.  In 2011, the U.S. Postal Service was ranked
number one in overall service performance, out of the top 20
wealthiest nations in the world, Oxford Strategic Consulting.
Black Enterprise and Hispanic Business magazines ranked the Postal
Service as a leader in workforce diversity.  The Postal Service
has been named the Most Trusted Government Agency for six years
and the sixth Most Trusted Business in the nation by the Ponemon
Institute.

The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses
and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund
its operations.

The U.S. Postal Service ended the first three months of its 2012
fiscal year (Oct. 1 - Dec. 31, 2011) with a net loss of $3.3
billion.  Management expects large losses to continue until the
Postal Service has implemented its network re-design and down-
sizing and has restructured its healthcare program.  Additionally,
the return to financial stability requires legislation which gives
the Postal Service typical commercial freedoms, including delivery
flexibility, returns over $10 billion of amounts overpaid to the
Federal Government and resolves the need to prefund retiree
healthcare at rates not assessed any other entity in the United
States.

To return to profitability, CEO Patrick Donahoe has advanced a
plan to reduce annual costs by $20 billion by 2015.  The plan
includes continued aggressive actions to generate additional
revenue and reduce operating expenses.  To reach the goal, the
Postal Service also needs changes in the law.  "Passage of
legislation is urgently needed that provides the Postal Service
with the speed and flexibility needed to cut costs that are not
under our control, including employee health care costs," Donahoe
said in February 2012  "The changes will give the Postal Service a
bright future and provide the nation with affordable and reliable
delivery for generations to come."


USG CORP: Lowers Net Loss to $27 Million in 1st Quarter of 2012
---------------------------------------------------------------
USG Corporation reported a net loss of $27 million on $812 million

with a net loss of $105 million on $721 million of net sales for
the same period a year ago.

billion in total assets, $3.57 billion in total liabilities and
$154 million in total stockholders' equity.

"Despite continuing low demand, our emphasis on achieving
operating profit is succeeding, and continues to be a top
priority," said James S. Metcalf, Chairman, President and CEO.

"Although demand in our core markets still remains near historical
lows," Metcalf said, "we are confident our strategy will continue
to move us toward positive net earnings."

                           *     *     *

As reported by the TCR on Aug. 15, 2011, Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services lowered its corporate credit rating on USG Corp. to 'B'
from 'B+'.

"The downgrade reflects our expectation that USG's operating
results and cash flow are likely to be strained over the next year
due to the ongoing depressed level of housing starts and still-
weak commercial construction activity," said Standard & Poor's
credit analyst Thomas Nadramia.  "It is now more likely, in
our view, that any meaningful recovery in housing starts may be
deferred until late 2012 or into 2013.  As a result, the risk that
USG's liquidity in the next 12 to 24 months will continue to erode
(and be less than we incorporated into our prior ratings) has
increased.  The ratings previously incorporated a greater
improvement in housing starts, which would have enabled USG to
reduce its negative operating cash flow in 2012 and achieve
breakeven cash flow or better by 2013."

In the Sept. 14, 2011, edition of the TCR, Fitch Ratings has
downgraded USG Corporation's Issuer Default Rating (IDR) to 'B-'
from 'B'.  The Rating Outlook remains Negative.

The ratings downgrade and the Negative Outlook reflect Fitch's
belief that underlying demand for the company's products will
remain weak through at least 2012 and the company's liquidity
position is likely to deteriorate in the next 18 months.  With the
recent softening in the economy and lowered economic growth
expectations for 2011 and 2012, the environment may at best
support a relatively modest recovery in housing metrics over the
next year and a half.  Fitch had previously forecast a slightly
more robust housing environment in 2011 and 2012.  Moreover, new
commercial construction is expected to decline further this year
and may only grow moderately next year.


VIASYSTEMS INC: S&P Rates Proposed $550-Mil. Senior Notes 'BB-'
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its 'BB-' issue-level
rating (the same as the corporate credit rating) to Viasystems
Inc.'s proposed $550 million senior secured notes issuance.
Viasystems Inc. is a wholly owned subsidiary of St. Louis-based
printed circuit board (PCB) manufacturer Viasystems Group Inc. "We
also assigned a '4' recovery rating to the notes, indicating an
expectation for average (30%-50%) recovery in the event of a
payment default," S&P said.

"We removed our existing issue-level rating on Viasystems Group's
debt from CreditWatch with negative implications, where it was
placed on April 5, 2012. This rating action is based on our
expectation of higher enterprise value pro forma for the
acquisition of PCB manufacturer DDi Corp.," S&P said.

"Separately, on April 5, 2012, we affirmed our 'BB-' corporate
credit rating on Viasystems Group since it had debt capacity
within the current rating to complete the proposed acquisition of
DDi," S&P said.

"The rating on Viasystems reflects our expectations that the
company will maintain leverage commensurate with a 'significant'
financial risk profile, despite higher debt levels related to the
proposed acquisition of DDi," said Standard & Poor's credit
analyst William Backus. "We expect that EBITDA will remain near
current pro forma levels, which we estimate at $183 million for
the latest 12 months ended Dec. 31, 2011. We also expect that
currently elevated capital expenditures will decline in 2013,
allowing the company to accumulate cash and or pre-amortize debt.
The rating allows for leverage under 4.0x through a cycle and we
expect pro forma leverage to rise to about 3.2x from 1.7x in
December 2011. We believe that Viasystems preserves some capacity
to absorb industry cyclicality, albeit on a reduced basis."

"With pro forma revenues of $1.3 billion as of Dec. 31, 2011, we
estimate the combined company will become the second-largest PCB
manufacturer in the fragmented North American PCB market," added
Mr. Backus. "We believe that DDi will complement Viasystems'
operations by expanding its product and customer base,
particularly within the military/aerospace end markets. The
acquisition requires consent of DDi shareholders and customary
regulatory approval, and is likely to close late in the second
quarter or early in third quarter of calendar year 2012. The total
transaction value for the acquisition is $283 million," S&P said.

"Our stable rating outlook on Viasystems reflects our expectation
that leverage will remain within our significant financial risk
profile, despite higher funded debt and integration costs related
to the proposed acquisition of DDi. The company's weak business
profile limits an upgrade in the near term, although if the
company continues to strengthen its market position, we could
revise our business risk profile longer term," S&P said.

"Alternatively, we could lower the rating if competitive pressures
or a weakening of end-market demand significantly reduce
profitability or if the company pursues another sizable debt-
financed acquisition which results in sustained leverage above
4x," S&P said.

WABASH NATIONAL: S&P Rates Corporate Credit 'B+'; Outlook Stable
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its preliminary 'B+'
corporate credit rating on Lafayette, Ind.-based Wabash National
Corp. The outlook is stable.

"At the same time, we assigned or preliminary 'B+' issue-level and
preliminary '4' recovery ratings on the company's $300 million
term loan B, indicating our expectation of average (30% to 50%)
recovery for debtholders in the event of a payment default," S&P
said.

"The ratings reflect our view of Wabash National Corp.'s business
profile as 'weak' and the financial profile as 'aggressive'," S&P
said..

"We believe the acquisition of Walker has the potential to
transform Wabash into a more profitable company with steady cash
flow and the opportunity to expand into new end markets and into
other regions and countries," said Standard & Poor's credit
analyst Lawrence Orlowski. "We expect positive sales growth in
2012, boosted by solid North American trailer and aftermarket
demand. Moreover, Wabash continues to take actions to improve its
commodity cost recovery mechanisms in the Wabash segment. We
believe some cost synergies with Walker are possible in the next
12 months and that free cash flow should enable some voluntary
debt reduction over the next few years."

"We expect commercial-vehicle production in North America to rise
over 10% in 2012. For example, FTR Associates is projecting
trailer production in North America to increase by 18% in 2012.
Still, the strength of recovery in commercial-vehicle demand
remains subject to the sustainability of economic recovery in many
markets and we believe sluggish economic news could slow the
growth in trailer orders. Although the average age of the
equipment has reached record highs of almost 9 years, we believe
trucking companies could allow their fleets to age further in this
economic cycle if the recovery in freight tonnage falters," S&P
said.


WIDEOPENWEST FINANCE: Moody's Expects CFR to Remain 'B2'
--------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service expects the corporate family rating
(CFR) of WideOpenWest Finance, LLC (WOW) to remain B2 should it
execute on its proposed acquisition of Knology, Inc. (Knology, B1
CFR).

Ratings Rationale

Moody's believes the transaction will incorporate both incremental
debt and an equity contribution from Avista Capital Partners,
which currently owns WOW. Based on WOW's historic tolerance for
raising leverage related to acquisitions and dividends as well as
Knology's currently stronger credit profile, Moody's anticipates
leverage of the combined entity will be in the high 6 times debt-
to-EBITDA range, in line with WOW's existing leverage. Knology's
leverage for the full year ended 2011 was approximately 4.2 times
debt-to-EBITDA, and WOW's was approximately 6.6 times.

Moody's believes the transaction will involve a refinancing of the
majority of the companies' existing capital structures and all
rated debt. Given change of control provisions within Knology's
all bank capital structure, Moody's considers repayment of
Knology's existing rated debt likely. Given the relatively near
term maturities of WOW's existing rated debt (June 2013 for the
first lien revolver, June 2014 for the first lien term loan, and
June 2015 for the second lien term loan), Moody's expects the
company will address its debt capital structure as part of this
transaction. Should the transaction proceed as expected, Moody's
would likely withdraw all existing Knology ratings.

The transaction would create execution risk, and costs related to
achieving synergies and integration would likely consume cash,
making a good liquidity profile pro forma for the deal essential
to maintaining WOW's B2 corporate family rating. However, benefits
of the proposed transaction include advantages of greater scale,
which would likely yield cost savings on purchases of programming
and equipment. Furthermore, Moody's believes the combination would
advance WOW's still nascent commercial business (estimated at less
than 5% of total revenue), given Knology's experience in this
segment (commercial represents slightly over 20% of Knology's
total revenue).

The principal methodology used in rating WideOpenWest Finance LLC
was the Global Cable Television Industry Methodology published in
July 2009. Other methodologies used include Loss Given Default for
Speculative-Grade Non-Financial Companies in the U.S., Canada and
EMEA published in June 2009.

Headquartered in Englewood, Colorado, WideOpenWest Finance, LLC
(WOW) is a competitive broadband provider offering cable TV
(approximately 436,000 subscribers), high speed Internet services
(413,000) and telephony (253,000) to residential and commercial
customers in Illinois, Michigan, Ohio and Indiana. Its revenue for
2011 was approximately $615 million. Avista Capital Partners owns
the company.

Knology, Inc. provides video, voice, data, and communications
services to residential and business customers in the southeastern
and midwestern United States. As of December 31, 2011, it served
approximately 257,000 video, 262,000 high speed data, and 277,000
telephone subscribers. As an "overbuilder," the company
historically built or acquired networks in regions overlapping
that of larger incumbent cable operators, such as Mediacom (B1)
and Comcast (Baa1). Knology attempts to differentiate itself with
high quality product offerings and efficient but localized
customer service. Knology generated revenue of approximately $520
million for the year ended
December 31, 2011.


WIDEOPENWEST FINANCE: S&P Puts 'B-' Corp. Credit Rating on Watch
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services placed its ratings on
Englewood, Colo.-based cable service provider WideOpenWest Finance
LLC (WOW), including the 'B-' corporate credit rating, on
CreditWatch with positive implications following its announcement
of a definitive agreement to acquire West Point, Ga.-based cable
service provider Knology Inc. (B+/Stable/--) for about $1.5
billion. The acquisition is subject to approval by regulators and
Knology shareholders and the company expects it to close in the
second half of 2012.

"The CreditWatch placement reflects the possibility that we may
raise the ratings on WOW given the increased scale of the combined
company and greater geographic diversity," said Standard & Poor's
credit analyst Allyn Arden. "These factors could support an
improved business risk profile assessment, which we currently view
as 'weak' for each company individually. The weak business risk
profiles also reflect maturing industry conditions and aggressive
competition from better capitalized incumbent cable and telephone
companies."

"We view the proposed transaction as complementary," added Mr.
Arden, "given the two companies' positions as cable overbuilders
(competitors to the incumbent cable provider) in most of their
markets, where they have relied on localized marketing strategies
and superior customer service to capture market share from the
incumbents. The acquisition would increase WOW's basic video
subscriber base by around 60% to about 692,000 customers, making
it the eighth-largest cable provider in the U.S. Video penetration
for the combined company is about 25%, which is typical of an
overbuilder and we do not expect any material growth from video
customers over the next few years except from market expansion
activity."

"The transaction improves WOW's geographic diversity given that
Knology has operations primarily in the Southeast and Midwest
U.S., whereas WOW's footprint is predominantly in Ohio, Michigan,
Indiana, and Illinois. Knology operates in lower density service
areas, where competition from the incumbent cable operators is not
as aggressive. Moreover, AT&T and Verizon have deployed their
respective U-Verse and FiOS video services in only a few of
Knology's markets. Knology also has a large presence in the
commercial segment, which accounts for about 20% of its revenue,
and has good capabilities to offer business customers Internet
protocol (IP)-based products and services," S&P said.

"Excluding potential operating synergies, we estimate that pro
forma operating lease-adjusted debt to EBITDA will be under 7.0x,
compared with about 6.6x for WOW on a stand-alone basis as of Dec.
31, 2011. However, we note that leverage at transaction close will
depend on the amount of equity contributed by WOW's financial
sponsor owners. We also believe that WOW will have reasonable
prospects to improve credit measures in the near term from EBITDA
growth, but we expect financial policies to remain aggressive,"
S&P said.

"In resolving the CreditWatch listing, we will consider the
operating outlook for the combined company and its business
strategy, and whether the scale and diversity benefits warrant a
revised business risk profile assessment. Another key rating
consideration will be WOW's financial policy, especially given its
history of shareholder-friendly actions. We expect the CreditWatch
to be resolved with an affirmation of the current rating or an
upgrade of no more than one notch. We also will reassess recovery
prospects based on the new capital structure of the combined
entity," S&P said.

* Retainer from Third Party No Automatic Disqualification
---------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that the U.S. Court of Appeals in New Orleans issued an
opinion late last month taking sides with courts that don't find
an automatic disqualification when a bankrupt company's lawyer
receives a retainer provided by a third party.  The opinion by
Circuit Judge Fortunato P. Benavides said that whether a
bankrupt's lawyer is disqualified for receiving a retainer
provided by a third party is to be decided by a "totality of the
circumstances" test.  The case is Waldron v. Adams & Reese LLP (In
re American International Refinery Inc.), 11-30462, U.S. 5th
Circuit Court of Appeals (New Orleans).

"showed no familiarity with the matter," U.S. Bankruptcy Judge
Bruce A. Markell is requiring the firm to repay the entire $5,000
fee for representing a couple in Chapter 13 bankruptcy.  Markell
sanctioned the firm Barry Levinson & Associates in Las Vegas by
writing a 19-page opinion he referred to as public reprimand.

* Paper Tackles Dodd-Frank's Orderly Liquidation Authority
----------------------------------------------------------
Patrick Fitzgerald, writing for Dow Jones' Daily Bankruptcy
Review, reported that Seton Hall University Professor Stephen J.
Lubben in a new paper, looks at how the Dodd-Frank Wall Street
Reform and Consumer Protection Act's Orderly Liquidation
Authority, a new insolvency regime created to address the
limitations of bankruptcy law, would resolve hypothetically --
that is take over, sell off and wind down -- Bank of America.

According to DBR, Prof. Lubben's paper raises some serious
questions about whether the new regime will be up to the task of
resolving an institution like BofA, whose $2.3 trillion in assets
dwarfs Lehman's $713 billion.

The OLA gives the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. the type of
receivership powers for "systemically important financial
institutions" it has long exercised to manage failed depository
banks, but Prof. Lubben says a financial colossus like BofA, with
more than 600 subsidiaries around the globe, looks far different
than a domestic bank.  The lack of a "global focus" is one of the
key drawbacks of the old bankruptcy law and isn't adequately
addressed by the new authority, according to the paper.

DBR relates BofA has declined to comment, and Michael Krimminger,
general counsel of the FDIC, says Prof. Lubben is missing the
point.

"He has something of a misconception of what the Orderly
Liquidation Authority is designed to do," said Mr. Krimminger in
an interview April 12, according to DBR.  The report notes Mr.
Krimminger said the OLA isn't designed to create an immediate
liquidation but to maintain the systemically important operations
of the company in order to prevent the financial contagion from
spreading.

DBR notes Prof. Lubben, a well-respected academic who also writes
a column for the New York Time's DealBook blog, and Mr. Krimminger
have a bit of a history.  Their tussle was part of a broader split
between those reformers with experience in banking versus
bankruptcy practitioners.

DBR also says Prof. Lubben's paper makes clear that he isn't a
proponent of "tweaking" the Bankruptcy Code to resolve a
systemically important financial institution.  That position,
dubbed Chapter 14 and proposed by the free-market-oriented
Resolution Project at Stanford University's Hoover Institution, is
unworkable, he said.

"Part of the problem is I'm the skunk at the garden party, no one
likes what I'm saying on either side," said Prof. Lubben in an
interview, according to DBR.  "You have to acknowledge the pure
bankruptcy, free-market solution doesn't work with respect to a
large financial institution."

* BOOK REVIEW: Performance Evaluation of Hedge Funds
----------------------------------------------------
Edited by Greg N. Gregoriou, Fabrice Rouah, and Komlan Sedzro
Publisher: Beard Books
Hardcover: 203 pages

Review by Henry Berry

Hedge funds can be traced back to 1949 when Alfred Winslow Jones
formed the first one to "hedge" his investments in the stock
market by betting that some stocks would go up and others down.
However, it has only been within the past decade that hedge funds
have exploded in growth.  The rise of global markets and the
uncertainties that have arisen from the valuation of different
currencies have given a boost to hedge funds.  In 1998, there were
approximately 3,500 hedge funds, managing capital of about $150
billion.  By mid-2006, 9,000 hedge funds were managing $1.2
trillion in assets.

Despite their growing prominence in the investment community,
hedge funds are only vaguely understood by most people.
Performance Evaluation of Hedge Funds addresses this shortcoming.
The book describes the structure, workings, purpose, and goals of
hedge funds.  While hedge funds are loosely defined as "funds with
no rules," the editors define these funds more usefully as
"privately pooled investments, usually structured as a partnership
between the fund managers and the investors."  The authors then
expand upon this definition by explaining what sorts of
investments hedge funds are, the work of the managers, and the
reasons investors join a hedge fund and what they are looking for
in doing so.

For example, hedge funds are characterized as an "important avenue
for investors opting to diversify their traditional portfolios and
better control risk" -- an apt characterization considering their
tremendous growth over the last decade.  The qualifications to
join a hedge fund generally include a net worth in excess of $1
million; thus, funds are for high net-worth individuals and
institutional investors such as foundations, life insurance
companies, endowments, and investment banks.  However, there are
many individuals with net worths below $1 million that take part
in hedge funds by pooling funds in financial entities that are
then eligible for a hedge fund.

This book discusses why hedge funds have become "notorious as
speculating vehicles," in part because of highly publicized
incidents, both pro and con.  For example, George Soros made $1
billion in 1992 by betting against the British pound.  Conversely,
the hedge fund Long-Term Capital Management (LTCP) imploded in
1998, with losses totalling $4.6 billion.  Nonetheless, these are
the exceptions rather than the rule, and the editors offer
statistics, studies, and other research showing that the
"volatility of hedge funds is closer to that of bonds than mutual
funds or equities."

After clarifying what hedge funds are and are not, the book
explains how to analyze hedge fund performance and select a
successful hedge fund.  It is here that the book has its greatest
utility, and the text is supplemented with graphs, tables, and
formulas.

The analysis makes one thing clear: for some investors, hedge
funds are an investment worth considering.  Most have a
demonstrable record of investment performance and the risk is low,
contrary to common perception.  Investors who have the necessary
capital to invest in a hedge fund or readers who aspire to join
that select club will want to absorb the research, information,
analyses, commentary, and guidance of this unique book.

Greg N. Gregoriou teaches at U. S. and Canadian universities and
does research for large corporations.  Fabrice Rouah also teaches
at the university level and does financial research.  Komlan
Sedzro is a professor of finance at the University of Quebec and
an advisor to the Montreal Derivatives Exchange.



                            *********

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.
