ALLEN FAMILY FOODS: 10% Plan Confirmed in Delaware
--------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that Allen Family Foods Inc. is set to emerge from Chapter
11 reorganization under a plan where unsecured creditors with
$32.2 million in claims were told they could expect a 10%
recovery.  The bankruptcy judge in Delaware signed a confirmation
order on Dec. 19 approving the plan.

According to the report, the business was sold in September 2011
to Korean poultry producer Harim Co., generating $45.2 million.
Confirmation required a separate settlement with the Pension
Benefit Guaranty Corp.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter, the purpose of the
Plan is to liquidate, collect and maximize the cash value of the
remaining assets of the Debtors and make distributions in respect
of any Allowed Claims against the Debtors' Estates.  The Plan is
premised on the satisfaction of Claims through creation of the
Liquidating Trust (pursuant to the Liquidating Trust Agreement)
and distribution of the proceeds raised from the sale and
liquidation of the Debtors' remaining assets, claims and Causes of
Action.

The Bloomberg report relates the secured debt when the Chapter 11
case began included $83.2 million on a term loan and revolving
credit with MidAtlantic Farm Credit ACA as agent.  From the sale
proceeds, $30 million was held aside to await the result of a
lawsuit by the creditors against MidAtlantic.

Bloomberg relates a settlement with the lender gave unsecured
creditors $5 million. The bank also agreed to waive claims, so it
won't share in distributions to unsecured creditors as a result of
a shortfall in payment of the secured claim.

                     About Allen Family Foods

Allen Family Foods Inc. is a 92-year-old Seaford, Del., poultry

Inc. and JCR Enterprises Inc., filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy

Allen estimated assets and liabilities between $50 million and
$100 million in its petition.

Robert S. Brady, Esq., and Sean T. Greecher, Esq., at Young,
Conaway, Stargatt & Taylor, in Wilmington, Delaware, serve as
counsel to the Debtors.  FTI Consulting is the financial advisor.
BMO Capital Markets is the Debtors' investment banker.  Epiq
Bankruptcy Solutions LLC is the claims and notice agent.

Roberta DeAngelis, U.S. Trustee for Region 3, appointed seven

in the Debtors' cases.  Lowenstein Sandler PC and Womble Carlyle
Sandridge & Rice, PLLC, serve as counsel for the committee.  J.H.
Cohn LLP serves as the Committee's financial advisor.


ALION SCIENCE: Incurs $41.4 Million Net Loss in Fiscal 2012
-----------------------------------------------------------
Alion Science and Technology Corporation filed with the U.S.
Securities and Exchange Commission its annual report on Form 10-K
disclosing a net loss of $41.44 million on $817.20 million of
contract revenue for the year ended Sept. 30, 2012, a net loss of
$44.38 million on $787.31 million of contract revenue for the year
ended Sept. 30, 2011, and a net loss of $15.23 million on $833.98
million of contract revenue for the year ended Sept. 30, 2010.

The Company's balance sheet at Sept. 30, 2012, showed $635.29
million in total assets, $776.35 million in total liabilities,
$110.74 million in redeemable common stock, $20.78 million in
common stock warrants, $149,000 accumulated other comprehensive
loss and a $272.43 million accumulated deficit.

                         Bankruptcy Warning

"Our credit arrangements, including our unsecured and secured note
indentures and our revolving credit facility include a number of
covenants.  We expect to be able to comply with our indenture
covenants and our credit facility financial covenants for at least
the next twenty-one months.  If we were unable to meet financial
covenants in our revolving credit facility in the future, we might
need to amend the revolving credit facility on less favorable
terms.  If we were to default under any of the revolving credit
facility covenants, we could pursue an amendment or waiver with
our existing lenders, but there can be no assurance that lenders
would grant an amendment or waiver.  In light of current credit
market conditions, any such amendment or waiver might be on terms,
including additional fees, increased interest rates and other more
stringent terms and conditions materially disadvantageous to us.
If we were unable to meet these financial covenants in the future
and unable to obtain future covenant relief or an appropriate
waiver, we could be in default under the revolving credit
facility.  This could cause all amounts borrowed under it and all
underlying letters of credit to become immediately due and
payable, expose our assets to seizure, cause a potential cross-
default under our indentures and possibly require us to invoke
insolvency proceedings including, but not limited to, a voluntary
case under the U.S. Bankruptcy Code."

                        About Alion Science

Alion Science and Technology Corporation, based in McLean,
Virginia, is an employee-owned company that provides scientific
research, development, and engineering services related to
national defense, homeland security, and energy and environmental
analysis.  Particular areas of expertise include communications,
wireless technology, netcentric warfare, modeling and simulation,
chemical and biological warfare, program management.

                           *     *     *

As reported by the TCR on Sept. 8, 2011, Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services lowered its corporate credit rating on McLean, Va.-based
Alion Science and Technology Corp. to 'CCC+' from 'B-'.  The
rating outlook is negative.

"The downgrade of Alion is a result of the company's recent
operational weakness," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst
Alfred Bonfantini, "and the prospect of further pressure on
revenues, which stem from the continuing resolution on the 2011
Federal government budget that wasn't settled until April 2011,
the subsequent specter of a U.S. government default during the
debt ceiling debate, and the ongoing uncertainty over future
budget cuts and levels."

In the Sept. 26, 2012, edition of the TCR, Moody's Investors
Service has lowered the ratings of Alion Science and Technology
Corporation including its Corporate Family Rating ("CFR") to Caa2
from Caa1 due to the high likelihood that the company will need do
a debt refinancing over the next twelve to eighteen months.


AMERICAN SUZUKI: Settlement With Dealers Approved by Court
----------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that American Suzuki Motor Corp. will import an additional
2,500 Suzuki cars to meet increased demand following the company
announcement it was withdrawing from the U.S. market.  The
company's sales rose 22% in November to more than 2,200 units.

The report relates that at a hearing Dec. 20, the bankruptcy judge
approved additional financing for the new imports.  The judge also
approved a settlement where almost all dealers agreed to terminate
dealerships while accepting immediate payment of half their
damages, with the remainder to be paid through the bankruptcy
process.

                     About American Suzuki

Established in 1986, American Suzuki Motor Corporation is the sole
distributor of Suzuki automobiles and vehicles in the United
States.  American Suzuki wholesales virtually all of its inventory
through a network of independently owned and unaffiliated
dealerships located throughout the continental  United States.
The dealers then market and sell the Suzuki Products to retail
customers.  Suzuki Motor Corp., the 100% interest holder in the
Debtor, manufacturers substantially all of the Suzuki products.
American Suzuki has 295 employees.  There are approximately 220
automotive dealerships, over 900 motorcycle/ATV dealerships, and
over 780 outboard marine dealerships.

American Suzuki filed a Chapter 11 petition (Bankr. C.D. Calif.
Case No. 12-22808) on Nov. 5, 2012, to sell the business to SMC,
absent higher and better offers.  SMC is not included in the
Chapter 11 filing.  The Debtor disclosed assets of $233 million
and liabilities totaling $346 million.  Debt includes $32 million
owing to the parent on a revolving credit and $120 million for
inventory financing.  There is about $4 million owing to trade
suppliers.

The Debtor also filed a plan of reorganization together with the
petition.  Under the proposed Plan, the Motorcycles/ATV and Marine
Divisions will remain largely unaffected including the warranties
associated with the products.  NounCo, Inc., a wholly owned
subsidiary of SMC, will purchase the Motorcycles/ATV and Marine
Divisions and the parts and service components of the Automotive
Division.  The restructured Automotive Division intends to honor
automotive warranties and authorize the sale of genuine Suzuki
automotive parts and services to retail customers through a
network of parts and service only dealerships that will provide
warranty services.

Bankruptcy Judge Catherine E. Bauer signed an order Oct. 6
reassigning the case to Judge Scott Clarkson.  ASMC's legal
advisor on the restructuring is Pachulski Stang Ziehl & Jones LLP,
and its financial advisor is FTI Consulting, Inc.  Nelson Mullins
Riley & Scarborough LLP is serving as special counsel on
automobile dealer and industry issues.  Further, ASMC has proposed
the appointment of Freddie Reiss, Senior Managing Director at FTI
Consulting, as chief restructuring officer, and has also added two
independent Board members to assist it through this period.  Rust
Consulting Omni Bankruptcy, a division of Rust Consulting, Inc.,
is the claims and notice agent.  The Debtor has retained Imperial
Capital, LLC as investment banker.

SMC is represented by lawyers at Klee, Tuchin, Bogdanoff & Stern
LLP.


AMERICAN AIRLINES: Selling London Townhouse for $23 Million
-----------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that American Airlines Inc. has a buyer to pay
14.2 million pounds ($23 million) for a townhouse in the
Kensington section of London.  The 5,242 square-foot property was
on the market for four months and was shown to 37 prospective
buyers.  The airline's parent AMR Corp. doesn't intend on holding
an auction.  Rather, AMR wants the sale approved at a Jan. 9
hearing in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in New York.

                         American Airlines

AMR Corp. and its subsidiaries including American Airlines, the
third largest airline in the United States, filed for bankruptcy
protection (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Lead Case No. 11-15463) in Manhattan
on Nov. 29, 2011, after failing to secure cost-cutting labor
agreements.

AMR, previously the world's largest airline prior to mergers by
other airlines, is the last of the so-called U.S. legacy airlines
to seek court protection from creditors.

American Airlines, American Eagle and the AmericanConnection
carrier serve 260 airports in more than 50 countries and
territories with, on average, more than 3,300 daily flights.  The
combined network fleet numbers more than 900 aircraft.

The Company reported a net loss of $884 million on $18.02 billion
of total operating revenues for the nine months ended Sept. 30,
2011.  AMR recorded a net loss of $471 million in the year 2010, a
net loss of $1.5 billion in 2009, and a net loss of $2.1 billion
in 2008.

AMR's balance sheet at Sept. 30, 2011, showed $24.72 billion
in total assets, $29.55 billion in total liabilities, and a
$4.83 billion stockholders' deficit.

Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP serves as bankruptcy counsel to the
Debtors.  Paul Hastings LLP and Debevoise & Plimpton LLP Groom Law

AMERIGROUP CORP: S&P Raises Counterparty Credit Rating From 'BB+'
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services raised its long-term
counterparty credit rating on Amerigroup Corp. (AGP) to 'A-' from
'BB+'. "At the same time, we removed the rating from CreditWatch
with positive implications, where we placed it on July 9, 2012.
The outlook is stable," S&P said.

"Our four-notch upgrade of AGP following its acquisition by
WellPoint Inc. is based on our designation of AGP as a core entity
within WellPoint Inc.," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Hema
Singh. "Based on our group rating methodology, we allow for more
than three notches of rating support for core entities. AGP will
now operate as wholly owned intermediate holding company under
WellPoint Inc. AGP's group of health plans collectively supports
the enterprise strategy, and the acquisition of AGP is in line
with WellPoint's strategy to increase its market presence in the
Medicaid segment. WellPoint has a significant existing presence in
the Medicaid segment."

"The stable outlook is based on our expectation that AGP will
remain a core entity within WellPoint Inc. Failure of WellPoint to
support AGP, or significant loss/nonrenewal of Medicaid contracts
within AGP's core markets would cause us to reevaluate AGP's core
group status and our rating on the company."


AMES DEPARTMENT: Cellmark Loses 2nd Cir. Appeal
-----------------------------------------------
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit upheld a Feb. 28,
2012 order of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of
New York (Koeltl, J.), affirming the March 28, 2011 order of the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York
(Gerber, Bankr. J.), which avoided and recovered three transfers
between Cellmark Paper Inc. and Ames Merchandising Corporation in
2001 worth a total of $1,899,970.

The Appeals Court agreed with the lower courts in rejecting
Cellmark's Presumption of Insolvency and Ordinary Course of
Business defenses.

According to the Appeals Court, the bankruptcy court did not
clearly err by concluding that Cellmark failed to submit evidence
sufficient to rebut the presumption of Ames's insolvency.  As the
bankruptcy court noted, evidence of the book value of Ames's
assets, without more, is ordinarily insufficient to establish
solvency under the Code, which is a concept based on the fair
market value of the debtor's assets.  Book value may be relevant
in determining fair market value, but it does not compel the fact
finder to draw an inference of solvency.  Thus, it was not clearly
erroneous for the bankruptcy court to conclude that the book
value, along with other evidence cited by Cellmark in its brief --
which consists of nothing more than statements by Ames executives
about their expectations for the company once it exited Chapter 11
bankruptcy -- was insufficient to support a reasonable finding of
Ames's solvency at the time of the transfers to overcome the
presumption.

The Appeals Court also held that the bankruptcy court noted a
number of aspects of Ames's and Cellmark's prior course of
dealings that distinguished the three transfers at issue.  Ames
had not previously made partial payments on an invoice, issued a
lump sum check for several invoices, or paid an invoice early.
Moreover, the invoice due August 2, 2001, unlike other invoices
from Cellmark, was manually prepared and out of numerical order.
The bankruptcy court considered Cellmark's explanations for these
differences and found them to be either unpersuasive or not
credible.  "Based on the record, we cannot say that the court's
factual findings were clearly erroneous. And based on these
findings, the bankruptcy court did not err in concluding that
Cellmark failed to establish that the transfers at issue took
place in the ordinary course of business between it and Ames," the
Second Circuit said.

The appellate case is, CELLMARK PAPER INCORPORATED, Creditor-
Appellant, v. AMES MERCHANDISING CORPORATION, Debtor-Appellee.*
No. 12-1269-bk (2nd Cir.).  A copy of the Appeals Court's Dec. 26
Summary Order is available at http://is.gd/MRUtI3from Leagle.com.

Cellmark is represented in the case by Irve J. Goldman, Esq. --
igoldman@pullcom.com -- at Pullman & Comley, LLC, in Bridgeport,
Connecticut.

Bijan Amini, Esq., and Avery Samet, Esq. -- bamini@samlegal.com
and asamet@samlegal.com -- at Storch Amini & Munves PC, in New
York, argue for Ames.

The three-judge panel consists of Circuit Judges Pierre N. Leval,
Debra Ann Livingston, and Denny Chin.

AMPAL-AMERICAN Tel Aviv Court Appoints Receiver for Gadot
---------------------------------------------------------
Ampal-American Israel Corporation, a holding company with
experience in acquiring interests in various businesses with
emphasis in recent years on energy, chemical and related fields,
disclosed that the Tel Aviv District Court in Israel appointed a
receiver for Gadot Chemical Tankers and Terminals Ltd. shares as
requested by Israel Discount Bank Ltd., as part of IDB's motion to
enforce IDB's lien and foreclose on all the outstanding shares of
Gadot, an Israeli wholly owned indirect subsidiary of Ampal.

IDB obtained the lien on the Gadot shares in connection with a
loan made pursuant to a Letter of Undertaking dated December 3,
2007, as amended (the "Loan").  The proceeds of the Loan were used
for the acquisition of Gadot.  Ampal had previously disclosed on
Nov. 14, 2012 and Nov. 22, 2012 that IDB had accelerated the Loan,
made a demand for immediate repayment and was seeking to foreclose
on the shares of Gadot.

The Company's balance sheet at Oct. 31, 2012, showed $2.16 million
in total assets, $2.24 million in total liabilities and a $78,587
total stockholders' deficit.

"To date the Company has funded its operations from internally
generated cash flow and external sources, the proceeds from the
Senior Secured Note and the convertible notes which have provided
funds for near-term operations and growth.  The current operating
plan indicates that losses from operations may be incurred for all
of fiscal 2013.  Consequently, we may not have sufficient
liquidity necessary to sustain operations for the next twelve
months and this raises substantial doubt that we will be able to
continue as a going concern.  The Company intends to seek to raise
additional capital through public or private equity financings,
partnerships, joint ventures, disposition of assets, debt
financings, bank borrowings or other sources of financing.

"No assurances can be made that management will be successful in
achieving its plan.  If the Company is not able to raise
substantial additional capital in a timely manner, the Company may
be forced to cease operations."

APT PAPER: In Bankruptcy, Shenzhen Factory Closed
-------------------------------------------------
Uni Core Holdings Corporation, a Hong Kong-based holding company,
regrettably informs its shareholders that it has filed for
bankruptcy protection for its Shenzhen Factory of the APT Paper
Group ("APT"), one of UCHC's subsidiaries.  The Shenzhen facility
was negatively impacted by the downturn of the Chinese and
worldwide economy coupled with a shortage of required cash flow to
meet current production needs.  APT Shenzhen has been struggling
for a long time and management has decided to close it down.

UCHC's Board believes that this move will allow the company to
devote the expected cash savings to bolster the healthier APT
Group's Qingdao and Suzhou factories, which remain fully
operational.

UCHC's management's goal is to turn the remaining APT operations
profitable within six (6) months.

UCHC plans to soon initiate a Valuation Report and an Audit of
Prosperous Agriculture Company Limited, its farm business, in
order to consolidate their financial results with the Group.

UCHC recently appointed a New York-based investment advisor to aid
in the business restructuring and an investment banker to
potentially raise capital.

James Wu, CEO of UCHC, commented that, although the above-
announced recent moves will provide short term pain, the results
should ultimately prove positive.

ATP OIL: Further Amends DIP Facility with Credit Suisse

ATP Oil & Gas Corporation amended its Senior Secured Super

       remaining three tranches of available undrawn loans, the
       Additional DIP Budget Amount ($30,000,000), the Final DIP
       Budget Amount ($60,000,000), and the Additional NM Loan
       Amount ($25,000,000).

     * The availability dates of the remaining three tranches of
       undrawn loans changed and certain new conditions to funding
       were put into place.

           which originally expired Nov. 15, 2012, is extended

           now available from Jan. 15, 2013, through Feb. 15,
           2013.

        -- The Additional NM Loans availability date, which
           originally was tied to the satisfaction of certain
           events related to the Gomez #9 Project for the first
           $5,000,000, is now available from Jan. 15, 2013,
           through Feb. 15, 2013, and for the remaining
           $25,000,000 is now available from Feb. 15, 2013,

           operation of the Clipper Project must be achieved by
           the date the remaining $25,000,000 is drawn.

     * The Additional NM Loan tranches available only upon receipt
       of a certificate from the Chief Restructuring Officer
       certifying the satisfaction of certain thresholds for the
       Company.

     * Each of the Company's failure to (i) achieve commercial
       operation of the MC 942 S-Sand by Jan. 2, 2013, and (ii)
       achieve commercial operation of the Clipper Project by
       March 1, 2013, were added as Events of Default.

     * Capital expenditures for the Gomez #9 Project are now
       limited to an aggregate amount of $1,000,000 for project
       planning, and an additional $1,000,000 at the reasonable
       discretion of the Required Lenders, those amounts being
       available as of Dec. 2, 2012.  The conditions that were
       required for any Gomez #9 capital expenditure have been
       eliminated.

     * By Dec. 17, 2012, the Company must file a Lien
       Identification Process Motion with the Bankruptcy Court
       seeking a process requiring all statutory Lien claimants to
       file with the Bankruptcy Court a statement of any Lien
       claims for prepetition services along with a statement, and
       evidence, of the date to which the claimant asserts that
       any Lien rights relate back.

     * The Company has additional flexibility in entering into
       Commodity Agreements and delivering the remaining post-
       closing deliverables.

     * The Company is now required to make mandatory prepayments
       of any distributions, dividends or other amounts from its
       foreign subsidiary, ATP Oil & Gas (Netherlands) B.V. and
       its subsidiaries, in connection with dispositions of assets
       by the ATP Oil & Gas (Netherlands) B.V. or its
       subsidiaries.

     * Schedule 8.19 (BOE Production Schedule) is being updated to
       reflect the agreed revised DIP Budget and the consequences
       of asset sales.

     * The Company's Liquidity calculation will now include the
       accounts receivable associated with the initial revenue
       payments made during the period from Feb. 15, 2013, through
       March 31, 2013, from the "first party purchasers"
       associated with the initial period of production from the
       Clipper Project.

     * Numerous milestones were put in place for the sale process
       of the Company's shelf properties and deepwater properties
       and related assets, including the dissemination of
       marketing materials, approved bidding procedures,
       commencement of an auction process, and consummation of the
       sale process, etc.  Each of the individual milestones dates
       may be extended an additional 28 days, with cause.

     * The interest rate on all loans under the DIP Credit
       Agreement will be increased by 2% per annum if the interest
       is paid in kind upon maturity or payment in full of the
       Loans, or 1% if the Company pays the interest in cash.
       Additionally, the Lenders charged an amendment fee of 1% of
       the sum of the aggregate principal amount of all Loans and
       unfunded Commitments, and that fee will be paid in kind.

Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that with one vessel already sold, the Chapter 11 plan
calls for selling the remainder and distributing the proceeds
first to secured creditors, taking settlements into consideration.
Assuming creditors consent to settlement and waive the right to
file lawsuits, the accompanying disclosure materials say that
about $2.4 million might be distributed to unsecured creditors.
Depending on the company against which a creditor has a claim, the
recovery on an unsecured claim is estimated to range from a low of
less than 5% to full payment.

BEHRINGER HARVARD: Co-GP Estimates Value of $1.93 Per LP Unit
-------------------------------------------------------------
The limited partnership agreement of Behringer Harvard Short-Term

                       About Behringer Harvard

Addison, Tex.-based Behringer Harvard is a limited partnership
formed in Texas on July 30, 2002.  The Company's general partners
are Behringer Harvard Advisors II LP and Robert M. Behringer.  As
of Sept. 30, 2011, seven of the twelve properties the Company
acquired remain in the Company's  portfolio.  The Company's
Agreement of Limited Partnership, as amended, provides that the
Company will continue in existence until the earlier of Dec. 31,
2017, or termination of the Partnership pursuant to the
dissolution and termination provisions of the Partnership
Agreement.

For the year ended Dec. 31 2011, Deloitte & Touche LLP, in Dallas,
Texas, noted that the uncertainty surrounding the ultimate outcome
of settling unpaid debt and its effect on the Partnership, as well
as the Partnership's operating losses at its subsidiaries, raise
substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going
concern.  The Partnership is facing a significant amount of debt
maturities in the near future and debt which has matured but
remains unpaid, which is recourse to the Partnership.

Behringer reported a net loss of $50.15 million in 2011, a net
loss of $18.71 million in 2010, and a net loss of $15.47 million
in 2009.

The Company's balance sheet at Sept. 30, 2012, showed $49.06
million in total assets, $52.94 million in total liabilities and a
$3.88 million total deficit.

                         Bankruptcy Warning

Of Behringer's $122.8 million in notes payable at March 31, 2012,
$51.3 million has matured and is subsequently in default and an
additional $50.8 million is scheduled to mature in the next twelve
months.  As of March 31, 2012, of the Company's $122.8 million in
notes payable, $110.4 million was secured by properties and $99.9
million was recourse to the Company.  The Company continues to
have negotiations and discussions with lenders to modify or
restructure loans, outcomes of which may include a sale to a third
party or returning the property to the lender.  The Company may
also consider putting certain of its subsidiaries into bankruptcy
in order to protect the Company's interest in the property.

period during the prior year.

For the six months ended Oct. 31, 2012, the Company incurred a

addition to limited cash, limited revenue and unprofitable

                       About Berry Plastics

Berry Plastics Corporation manufactures and markets plastic
packaging products, plastic film products, specialty adhesives and
coated products.  At Jan. 2, 2010, the Company had more than 80
production and manufacturing facilities, primarily located in the
United States.  Berry is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Berry
Plastics Group, Inc.  Berry Group is primarily owned by affiliates
of Apollo Management, L.P. and Graham Partners.  Berry, through
its wholly owned subsidiaries operates five reporting segments:
Rigid Open Top, Rigid Closed Top, Flexible Films, Tapes/Coatings
and Specialty Films.  The Company's customers are located
principally throughout the United States, without significant
concentration in any one region or with any one customer.

On Dec. 3, 2009, Berry Plastics obtained control of 100% of the
capital stock of Pliant upon Pliant's emergence from
reorganization pursuant to a proceeding under Chapter 11 for a
purchase price of $602.7 million.  Pliant is a leading
manufacturer of value-added films and flexible packaging for food,
personal care, medical, agricultural and industrial applications.
The acquired business is primarily operated in Berry's Specialty
Films reporting segment.

                           *     *     *

Berry Plastics has a 'B3' corporate family rating, with stable
outlook, from Moody's Investors Service.  Moody's said in April
2010 that Berry's B3 CFR reflects weakness in certain credit
metrics, financial aggressiveness and acquisitiveness and a
continued difficult operating and competitive environment
especially in the flexible plastics and tapes segments.  The
rating also reflects the Company's exposure to more cyclical end
markets, relatively weak contracts with customers and a high
percentage of commodity products.

In November 2011, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services affirmed the
'B-' corporate credit rating on Berry and its holding company
parent, Berry Plastics Group Inc.  "The ratings on Berry reflect
the risks associated with the company's highly leveraged financial
profile and acquisition- driven growth strategy as well as its
fair business risk profile," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst
Cynthia Werneth.

The 2012 Liberty Facility allows for maximum outstanding
borrowings of $50 million and provides for an 85% advance on

BRE-X MINERALS: Trustee Seeks to End Suits vs. Former Execs.
------------------------------------------------------------
Deloitte & Touche Inc., Trustee in Bankruptcy of Bre-X Minerals
Ltd., intends to seek Court approval to discontinue the Estate's
various lawsuits against the Estate of David Walsh, the company's
former president, John Felderhof, the company's former Chief
Geologist, and his former spouse, Ingrid Felderhof.  The lawsuits
have been ongoing since 1997.  Although the point is contested by
class counsel in a related class action against the above
defendants, the Trustee has concluded that it lacks sufficient
financial resources to continue the litigation and that there is
no meaningful prospect of the Estate making a significant recovery
even if successful.

The Trustee will apply for leave to discontinue the lawsuits from
the Ontario Superior court of Justice on March 4, 2013 and from
the Alberta Court of Queen's Bench in Bankruptcy on May 30, 2013.
Class counsel in the related class action will be opposing the
motion.

CATALYST PAPER: Arizona Plant Sold for $13.5 Million
----------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that Catalyst Paper Corp. was given authority from the
bankruptcy court in Delaware to sell the company's plant in
Snowflake, Arizona, for almost $13.5 million.

The report relates that the price rose 12% at auction this month
over the initial bid from the stalking horse.  The company had
been expecting competitive bidding.  The sale was approved in the
U.S. on Dec. 19.  The sale includes a short-line railroad
associated with the plant where operations were terminated.

According to the report, Catalyst's Canadian reorganization plan
was approved by the Canadian court in June and recognized in the
U.S. the next month.  The plan became effective in September.  The
company had decided to sell the U.S. plant before the bankruptcies
began.

                        About Catalyst Paper

Catalyst Paper Corp. -- http://www.catalystpaper.com/--
manufactures diverse specialty mechanical printing papers,
newsprint and pulp.  Its customers include retailers, publishers
and commercial printers in North America, Latin America, the
Pacific Rim and Europe.  With four mills, located in British
Columbia and Arizona, Catalyst has a combined annual production
capacity of 1.9 million tons.  The Company is headquartered in
Richmond, British Columbia, Canada and its common shares trade on
the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol CTL.

Catalyst on Dec. 15, 2011, deferred a US$21 million interest
payment on its outstanding 11.00% Senior Secured Notes due 2016
and Class B 11.00% Senior Secured Notes due 2016 due on Dec. 15,
2011.  Catalyst said it was reviewing alternatives to address its
capital structures and it is currently in discussions with
noteholders.  Perella Weinberg Partners served as the financial
advisor.

In early January 2012, Catalyst entered into a restructuring
agreement, which will see its bondholders taking control of the
company and includes an exchange of debt for equity.  The
agreement said it would slash the company's debt by C$315.4
million ($311 million) and reduce its cash interest expenses.
Catalyst also said it will continue to "operate and satisfy" its
obligations to customers, trade creditors, employees and retirees
in the ordinary course of business during the restructuring
process.

On Jan. 17, 2012, Catalyst applied for and received an initial
court order under the Canada Business Corporations Act (CBCA) to
commence a consensual restructuring process with its noteholders.
Affiliate Catalyst Paper Holdings Inc., filed for creditor
protection under Chapter 15 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code (Bankr. D.
Del. Case No. 12-10219) on the same day and sought recognition of
the Canadian proceedings.

Catalyst joins a line of paper producers that have succumbed to
higher costs, increased competition from Asia and Europe, and
falling demand as more advertisers and readers move online.  In
2011, Cerberus Capital-backed NewPage Corp. filed for bankruptcy
protection, followed by SP Newsprint Co., owned by newsprint
magnate and fine art collector Peter Brant.  In December, Wausau
Paper said it will close its Brokaw mill in Wisconsin, cut 450
jobs and exit its print and color business.

The Supreme Court of British Columbia granted Catalyst creditor
protection under the CCAA until April 30, 2012.

As reported by the TCR on July 2, 2012, Catalyst received approval
for its reorganization plan from the Supreme Court of British
Columbia.  The Company's second amended plan under the Companies'
Creditors Arrangement Act received 99% support from creditors.

As reported by the TCR on Sept. 17, 2012, Catalyst Paper has
successfully completed its previously announced reorganization
pursuant to its Second Amended and Restated Plan of
Compromise and Arrangement under the Companies' Creditors
Arrangement Act.

Catalyst Paper's balance sheet at Sept. 30, 2012, showed
C$1.04 billion in total assets, C$887.3 million in total
liabilities and C$152.8 million in equity.


CEREPLAST INC: Voluntarily Moves Listing to the OTCQB Market
------------------------------------------------------------
Cereplast, Inc.'s Board of Directors has voluntarily decided to
move the listing of its common stock from The NASDAQ Capital
Market to the OTC Markets' OTCQB marketplace.  Cereplast expects
that its stock will begin trading on the OTCQB under its ticker
symbol "CERP" effective Dec. 17, 2012.  As of that date, investors
and other interested parties will be able to view the Real Time
Level II stock quotes for CERP at http://www.otcmarkets.com/
Cereplast will file a Form 25 with the Securities and Exchange
Commission, and ceased trading on NASDAQ on Dec. 14, 2012.

"We believe that our decision to move to the OTCQB is in no way an
adverse reflection of the viability of the Company," stated
Frederic Scheer, Chairman and CEO of Cereplast.  "We carefully
evaluated our options to maintain our listing on NASDAQ, including
whether or not to implement a reverse split to satisfy the $1.00
per share minimum bid price requirement, and concluded that it was
not in the best interest of our shareholders.  We believe that the
transition to the OTCQB will be relatively seamless and will
continue to provide existing and new shareholders a quality
marketplace to trade our stock."

Mr. Scheer continued, "Looking forward to FY 2013, we expect the
Company to recover from the losses incurred in 2012 and we are
working on generating new revenue and cash flow as well as opening
up new sales initiatives into new markets for our new and existing
products and services."

On May 1, 2012, the Company received a letter from NASDAQ advising
the Company that for the 30 consecutive trading days preceding the
date of the notice, the bid price of the Company's common stock
had closed below the $1.00 per share minimum bid price required
for continued listing on The NASDAQ Capital Market, pursuant to
NASDAQ Listing Rule 5550(a)(2).  The letter stated that the
Company would be provided 180 calendar days, or until Nov. 1,
2012, to regain compliance with the Bid Price Rule, which deadline
was subsequently extended on a one-time basis to April 29, 2013.
To regain compliance, the closing bid price of the common stock
would need to be at least $1.00 per share for a minimum of ten
consecutive business days prior to that date.

The Board of Directors' voluntary decision to move the Company's
listing from NASDAQ to OTCQB was made following the detailed
review of numerous factors including NASDAQ filing fees (versus
OTCQB); the significant compliance obligations and restrictions
that result from the maintenance of the NASDAQ listing, including
the associated out-of-pocket costs (versus OTCQB); and the
uncertainty to regain compliance with the Bid Price Rule before
the April, 2013 deadline.  Based on the foregoing factors, the
Board of Directors does not believe there is continuing
shareholder value in maintaining Cereplast's listing on NASDAQ at
this time.  However, the move to the OTCQB does not change the
Company's reporting obligations with the Securities and Exchange
Commission under applicable federal securities laws.  Accordingly,
the Company will continue to file its Annual Report on Form 10-K,
Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and its Current Reports on Form
8-K.

                         Bankruptcy Warning

"We have incurred a net loss of $16.3 million for the nine months
ended Sept. 30, 2012, and $14.0 million for the year ended
Dec. 31, 2011, and have an accumulated deficit of $73.2 million as
of Sept. 30, 2012.  Based on our operating plan, our existing
working capital will not be sufficient to meet the cash
requirements to fund our planned operating expenses, capital
expenditures and working capital requirements through Dec. 31,
2012, without additional sources of cash."

"Our plan to address the shortfall of working capital is to
generate additional financing through a combination of sale of our
equity securities, additional funding from our new short-term
convertible debt financings, incremental product sales into new
markets with advance payment terms and collection of outstanding
past due receivables.  We are confident that we will be able to
deliver on our plans, however, there are no assurances that we
will be able to obtain any sources of financing on acceptable
terms, or at all."

"If we cannot obtain sufficient additional financing in the short-
term, we may be forced to curtail or cease operations or file for
bankruptcy."


CLEAR CHANNEL: Bain's M. Freeman Joins Board of Directors
---------------------------------------------------------
Steven W. Barnes resigned as a member of the Board of Directors of
Clear Channel Communications, Inc.  Pursuant to the Company's
Seventh Amended and Restated By-laws, as amended, effective
Dec. 14, 2012, the Board of Directors of the Company appointed
Matt Freeman as a member of the Company's Board of Directors to
fill the vacancy created by Mr. Barnes' resignation.

Mr. Freeman is an Operating Partner at Bain Capital Partners, LLC.
From 2010 until he joined Bain in 2012, Mr. Freeman served in
multiple capacities for The Interpublic Group of Companies, Inc.
(a global advertising and marketing services company), including
as CEO of its Mediabrands Ventures unit and as Vice Chairman and
Global Chief Innovation Officer of its McCann Erickson unit.
Prior thereto, Mr. Freeman was the CEO of an online media company,
Betawave, from 2009 to 2010 and served as CEO of the Tribal DDB
Worldwide unit of Omnicom Group Inc. (a global advertising,
marketing and corporate communications company) from 1998 to 2009.
Mr. Freeman, who graduated from Dartmouth College and the School
of Visual Arts, currently serves as Chairman of Advertising Week
and has served on the boards of the Advertising Club of New York
and the American Association of Advertising Agencies (4As) and is
a member of the Marketing Advisory Board of the Museum of Modern
Art (MoMA).  Mr. Freeman also has been inducted into the American
Advertising Federation Hall of Achievement.

Mr. Freeman will not receive any compensation for his service on
the Company's Board of Directors.  He will receive the same form
of Indemnification Agreement as all other members of the Company's
Board of Directors.  At this time, the Board of Directors does not
intend to appoint Mr. Freeman as a member of any of the committees
of the Board of Directors.

Entities controlled by Bain and Thomas H. Lee Partners, L.P., and
their respective affiliates collectively own all of the
outstanding shares of the Class B common stock and the Class C
common stock of CC Media Holdings, Inc., the Company's indirect
parent.  These shares represent in the aggregate approximately 72%
(whether measured by voting power or economic interest) of the
equity of CCMH.  In addition, seven of the Company's directors
(including Mr. Freeman) are affiliated with the Sponsors and all
of the Company's directors are members of the Board of Directors
of CCMH.

In connection with the 2008 merger pursuant to which CCMH acquired
the Company, CCMH and the Company entered into a number of
agreements with the Sponsors and certain of their affiliates,
including (1) a management agreement pursuant to which the
Sponsors provide management and financial advisory services to
CCMH and its wholly owned subsidiaries until 2018, at a rate not
greater than $15.0 million per year, plus reimbursable expenses,
(2) a stockholders agreement relating to voting in elections to
the Board of Directors of CCMH and the transfer of certain shares
and (3) an affiliate transactions agreement with respect to the
entry into certain transactions between CCMH or its subsidiaries,
on the one hand, and the Sponsors or their respective affiliates,
on the other hand.  In addition, as a result of the worldwide
reach and the nature of the business of CCMH and its subsidiaries
and the breadth of investments by the Sponsors, it is not unusual
for CCMH and its subsidiaries to engage in ordinary course of
business commercial transactions with entities in which one or
both of the Sponsors directly or indirectly owns a greater than
10% equity interest.

liabilities, and a $7.86 billion total shareholders deficit.

                         Bankruptcy Warning

At March 31, 2012, the Company had $20.7 billion of total
indebtedness outstanding.

The Company said in its quarterly report for the period ended
March 31, 2012, that its ability to restructure or refinance the
debt will depend on the condition of the capital markets and the
Company's financial condition at that time.  Any refinancing of
the Company's debt could be at higher interest rates and increase
debt service obligations and may require the Company and its
subsidiaries to comply with more onerous covenants, which could
further restrict the Company's business operations.  The terms of
existing or future debt instruments may restrict the Company from
adopting some of these alternatives.  These alternative measures
may not be successful and may not permit the Company or its
subsidiaries to meet scheduled debt service obligations.  If the
Company and its subsidiaries cannot make scheduled payments on
indebtedness, the Company or its subsidiaries, as applicable, will
be in default under one or more of the debt agreements and, as a
result the Company could be forced into bankruptcy or liquidation.

                           *     *     *

The Troubled Company Reporter said on Feb. 10, 2012, Fitch Ratings
has affirmed the 'CCC' Issuer Default Rating of Clear Channel
Communications, Inc., and the 'B' IDR of Clear Channel Worldwide
Holdings, Inc., an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of Clear
Channel Outdoor Holdings, Inc., Clear Channel's 89% owned outdoor
advertising subsidiary.  The Rating Outlook is Stable.

Fitch's ratings concerns center on the company's highly leveraged
capital structure, with significant maturities in 2014 and 2016;
the considerable and growing interest burden that pressures free
cash flow; technological threats and secular pressures in radio
broadcasting; and the company's exposure to cyclical advertising
revenue.  The ratings are supported by the company's leading
position in both the outdoor and radio industries, as well as the
positive fundamentals and digital opportunities in the outdoor
advertising space.

CLEARWIRE CORP: Sprint to Acquire 100% Ownership for $2.97 Apiece
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Sprint has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire the
approximately 50% stake in Clearwire that it does not currently
own for $2.97 per share, equating to a total payment to Clearwire
shareholders, other than Sprint, of $2.2 billion.  This
transaction results in a total Clearwire enterprise value of
approximately $10 billion, including net debt and spectrum lease
obligations of $5.5 billion.

The transaction consideration represents a 128% premium to
Clearwire's closing share price the day before the Sprint-Softbank
discussions were first confirmed in the marketplace on October 11,
with Clearwire speculated to be a part of that transaction; and, a
40% premium to the closing price the day before receipt of
Sprint's initial $2.60 per share non-binding indication of
interest on November 21.

Clearwire's spectrum, when combined with Sprint's, will provide
Sprint with an enhanced spectrum portfolio that will strengthen
its position and increase competitiveness in the U.S. wireless
industry.  Sprint's Network Vision architecture should allow for
better strategic alignment and the full utilization and
integration of Clearwire's complementary 2.5 GHz spectrum assets,
while achieving operational efficiencies and improved service for
customers as the spectrum and network is migrated to LTE
standards.

Sprint CEO Dan Hesse said, "Today's transaction marks yet another
significant step in Sprint's improved competitive position and
ability to offer customers better products, more choices and
better services.  Sprint is uniquely positioned to maximize the
value of Clearwire's spectrum and efficiently deploy it to
increase Sprint's network capacity.  We believe this transaction,
particularly when leveraged with our SoftBank relationship, is
further validation of our strategy and allows Sprint to control
its network destiny."

The transaction was unanimously approved by Clearwire's board of
directors upon the unanimous recommendation of a special committee
of the Clearwire board consisting of disinterested directors not
appointed by Sprint.  In addition, Clearwire has received
commitments from Comcast Corp., Intel Corp and Bright House
Networks LLC, who collectively own approximately 13% of
Clearwire's voting shares, to vote their shares in support of the
transaction.  SoftBank has provided its consent to the
transaction, as required under the terms of its recently announced
merger agreement with Sprint.

Clearwire CEO and President Erik Prusch said, "Our board of
directors has been reviewing available strategic alternatives over
the course of the last two years.  In evaluating available
alternatives, a special committee conducted a careful and rigorous
process, and based on the committee's recommendation, our board
unanimously determined that this transaction, which delivers
certain and attractive value for our shareholders, is the best
path forward."

In connection with the transaction, Clearwire and Sprint have
entered into agreements that provide up to $800 million of
additional financing for Clearwire in the form of exchangeable
notes, which will be exchangeable under certain conditions for
Clearwire common stock at $1.50 per share, subject to adjustment
under certain conditions.  Under the financing agreements, Sprint
has agreed to purchase $80 million of exchangeable notes per month
for up to ten months beginning in January, 2013, with some of the
monthly purchases subject to certain funding conditions, including
conditions relating to the approval of the proposed merger by
Clearwire's shareholders and a network build out plan.

The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions,

                 Investor Says Proposal Too Little

Mount Kellett Capital Management LP, owner of 53.2 million shares,
or approximately 3.6% of the Company's outstanding voting stock,
sent a letter to the Clearwire Corporation Board of Directors
outlining issues related to, among other things, Clearwire's
relationship with Sprint Nextel Corporation.

Mount Kellett believes that the consideration of $2.90 per share
grossly undervalues Clearwire.  Moreover, Mount Kellett maintains,
the convertible debt financing proposed by Sprint is a clear
threat to the minority stockholders to vote in favor of the Sprint
proposal or face the dilution of the value of their stake in the
Company from the convertible debt and an ultimate squeeze-out
transaction when Sprint achieves a 90% ownership stake.

"To sell the Company to Sprint at a $2.90 per Share valuation
would be an absolute outrage and, in our view, a clear breach of
the Board's fiduciary duties to the public stockholders," Mount
Kellett wrote.

The Company reported a net loss attributable to the Company of
$717.33 million in 2011, a net loss attributable to the Company of
$487.43 million in 2010, and a net loss attributable to the
Company of $325.58 million in 2009.

The Company's balance sheet at Sept. 30, 2012, showed $8.14
billion in total assets, $5.86 billion in total liabilities and
$2.28 billion in total stockholders' equity.

As reported by the TCR on Nov. 25, 2011, Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services lowered its corporate credit and senior secured first-
lien issue-level ratings on Bellevue, Wash.-based wireless
provider Clearwire Corp. to 'CCC' from 'CCC+'.

The ratings on Clearwire continue to reflect its "highly
leveraged" financial risk profile based on its high debt burden
and "weak" liquidity (both terms as defined in S&P's criteria).
"The ratings also reflect our view that Clearwire has a vulnerable
business position as a developmental-stage company with
significant competition from better capitalized wireless carriers,
including AT&T Mobility and Verizon Wireless, which are deploying
their own 4G wireless services," S&P said in January 2012.

"We believe that the company would likely run out of cash in the
late 2012 to early 2013 time frame absent significant asset sales,
since we view the terms in the December 2011 wholesale agreement
with Sprint Nextel as unfavorable in the near term and will likely
constrain cash inflows in 2012 to 2013.  We have not assumed
spectrum sales in our liquidity assessment because of the
uncertainty involved in finding a buyer, as well as timing.
However, if the company could secure sufficient funding for
operations through 2013, we could raise the ratings," S&P also
stated.

Moody's Investors Service on Dec. 13 said that Sprint Nextel
Corporation (B1, on review for upgrade) offered to buy the
remaining 49% stake of Clearwire Corp. (Caa2, stable) that Sprint
does not already own. Sprint's offer of $2.90 a share in cash for
Clearwire totals $2.1 billion.  If a definitive agreement is
reached and a transaction is consummated, Moody's believes the
deal would be credit positive for Sprint and Clearwire.


CLEARWIRE CORP: Crest Buys More Shares, Opposes Sprint Merger
-------------------------------------------------------------
Crest Financial Limited, its affiliates and other related persons,
filed an amended Schedule 13D with the Securities and Exchange
Commission disclosing that they have acquired additional shares of
Clearwire Corporation.  The Crest group now owns 57,653,419
shares, or approximately 8.34% of Clearwire's outstanding Class A
stock, up from the 45,801,898 Class A shares of Clearwire, or
approximately 6.62% of Clearwire's outstanding Class A stock,
which it had owned previously.

The Crest group's purchase of additional Clearwire shares
demonstrates its willingness to further invest in Clearwire and
its confidence in Clearwire's network build-out plan.

In the meantime, Crest continues to oppose the proposed merger of
Clearwire with Sprint Nextel Corporation.  Crest intends to pursue
all avenues available to it including its lawsuit against
Clearwire, Sprint and others in the Court of Chancery of the State
of Delaware, to protect itself and other minority shareholders in
Clearwire from the unfair dealings of Sprint and Clearwire in this
matter.

Commission its quarterly report on Form 10-Q disclosing a net loss
of $2.24 million on $1.13 million of revenue for the three months
ended Oct. 31, 2012, compared with a net loss of $760,000 on $2.25
million of revenue for the same period during the prior year.

For the nine months ended Oct. 31, 2012, the Company reported a

totaling $2.8 million and $3.9 million, respectively.  In
addition, the Company experienced pre-tax losses from operations
for fiscal 2012 totaling $5.3 million.  The Company also has
negative working capital and uncertainties surrounding the
Company's future ability to obtain borrowings and raise additional
capital.  These factors, among others, raise substantial doubt
about our ability to continue as a going concern."

After auditing the fiscal 2012 financial results, Squar, Milner,

expressed substantial doubt about the Company's ability to
continue as a going concern.  The independent auditors noted that

from operations, has had declining working capital and
uncertainties surrounding the Company's ability to raise
additional funds.

CONTINENTAL AIRLINES: S&P Rates $425MM Class C Certs. 'B+'
----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its 'B+'(sf) rating to
Continental Airlines Inc.'s $425 million series 2012-3 Class C
pass-through certificates with an expected maturity of April 29,
2018. Continental is issuing the certificates under a Rule 415
shelf registration. "We assigned preliminary ratings on Dec. 12,
2012," S&P said.

"The 2012-3 Class C (2012-3C) pass-through certificates will be
serviced by cash flows from new Series C notes secured by each of
the aircraft financed by Continental's 2012-1 and 2012-2 pass-
through certificates. Thus, the 2012-3C certificates rank junior
to the existing Class A and Class B certificates of the 2012-1 and
2012-2 transactions. The 2012-3C certificates will not have a
dedicated liquidity facility, as do the more senior 2012-1 and
2012-2 certificates," S&P said.

"The 'B+'(sf) rating is based on the consolidated credit quality
of Continental's parent, United Continental Holdings Inc.
(B/Stable/--) and the legal and structural protections available
to the pass-through certificates. Because these certificates are
not supported by a liquidity facility, we analyze them as
equipment trust certificates (ETCs), rather than enhanced
equipment trust certificates (EETCs)," S&P said.

"Our rating, one notch higher than our corporate credit rating on
Continental, gives some credit for the likelihood that the airline
would not reject the secured notes whose cash flows support the
2012-3C certificates in a bankruptcy scenario. However, we do not
give as much credit for this likelihood of affirming the secured
notes as we do for the more senior Class A and Class B 2012-1 and
2012-2 certificates. That is because the lack of a liquidity
facility for the 2012-3C certificates means that they might
default in a Continental bankruptcy even if the airline
subsequently affirmed the related secured notes. The relevant
section of the Bankruptcy Code, Section 1110, gives an airline an
initial 60-day period before it has to resume debt service on
aircraft-backed debt and leases that it wishes to affirm. Our
limited, one-notch rating enhancement is also less than the credit
enhancement we assign to EETCs, because Continental might
renegotiate the payment terms of the secured notes in such a way
as to preserve payments to the Class A certificates, or to the
Class A and B certificates, but not to the Class C certificates.
The Class A certificates' holders, as the 'controlling party' in
the 2012-1 and 2012-2 EETCs, can, within limits, negotiate on
behalf of creditors with Continental," S&P said.

"The loan-to-value of the Class C secured notes issued against
aircraft in the 2012-1 pass-through certificates is initially
about 81%, using the values that we focus on (which are different
than those in the prospectus) and reach 89% (using the
depreciation assumptions that we focus on, which are also
different than those in the prospectus) by the time the 2012-3C
certificates mature in 2018. Similarly, the loan-to-value of the
Class C secured notes issued against aircraft in the 2012-2 pass-
through certificates is initially about 83%, using the values that
we focus on, and reach 93% by the time the 2012-3C certificates
mature in 2018. These are fairly high loan-to-values, and we do
not assign credit to this collateral coverage in our analysis of
the 2012-3C certificates," S&P said.

"The secured notes related to the 2012-3C certificates will be
cross-collateralized but failure to pay amounts due on the series
C notes relating to the 2012-1 EETC would not immediately trigger
a default of the notes relating to the 2012-2 EETC, and vice
versa. This means that if Continental were to reject aircraft
notes relating to either of the 2012-1 or the 2012-2 EETCs, and
the amounts available following negotiations with Continental or
repossession and sale of the related aircraft collateral were
insufficient to cover the pro rata portion of the 2012-3C
certificates, certificate holders could still eventually recover
the shortfall from Continental when all secured notes relating to
the other, non-rejected EETC are repaid. This would be only after
the more senior Class A and B certificates are paid off, and after
the maturity of the 2012-3C certificates," S&P said.

affiliate, Cumulus Media Partners, LLC, the Company believes it is
the fourth largest radio broadcast company in the United States
when based on net revenues.

Cumulus Media put AR Broadcasting Holdings Inc. and three other
units to Chapter 11 protection (Bankr. D. Del. Lead Case No.
11-13674) after struggling to pay off debts that topped

total stockholders' equity.

                         Bankruptcy Warning

The Company said in its annual report for the year ended Dec. 31,
2011, that the lenders under the 2011 Credit Facilities have taken
security interests in substantially all of the Company's
consolidated assets, and the Company has pledged the stock of
certain of its subsidiaries to secure the debt under the 2011
Credit Facilities.  If the lenders accelerate the repayment of
borrowings, the Company may be forced to liquidate certain assets
to repay all or part of such borrowings, and the Company cannot
assure that sufficient assets will remain after it has paid all of
the borrowings under those 2011 Credit Facilities.  If the Company
was unable to repay those amounts, the lenders could proceed
against the collateral granted to them to secure that indebtedness
and the Company could be forced into bankruptcy or liquidation.

                           *     *     *

Standard & Poor's Ratings Services in October 2011 affirmed is 'B'
corporate credit rating on Cumulus Media.

"The ratings reflect continued economic weakness and higher post-
acquisition leverage than we initially expected," said Standard &
Poor's credit analyst Jeanne Shoesmith. "They also reflect the
combined company's sizable presence in both large and midsize
markets throughout the U.S."

As reported by the TCR on Nov. 20, 2012, Moody's Investors Service
affirmed the B1 Corporate Family Rating of Cumulus Media Inc.
The company's B1 corporate family rating is forward looking and
reflects Moody's expectation that management will continue to
reduce debt balances with free cash flow resulting in net debt-to-
EBITDA ratios of less than 6.0x (including Moody's standard
adjustments, and treating preferred shares as 75% debt) over the
rating horizon, with further improvement thereafter consistent
with management's 4.0x reported leverage target.


DCB FINANCIAL: M3 Funds Discloses 7.1% Equity Stake

stock of DCB Financial Corp. representing 7.1% of the outstanding
shares of common stock.  A copy of the filing is available at:

                         http://is.gd/Grl0vD

                         About DCB Financial

DCB Financial Corp. is a financial holding company headquartered
in Lewis Center, Ohio.  The Corporation has one wholly-owned
subsidiary bank, The Delaware County Bank and Trust Company (the
"Bank").  The Corporation also has two additional wholly owned
subsidiaries, DCB Title and DCB Insurance Services LLC.  DCB Title
provides standard real estate title services, while DCB Insurance
Services LLC provides a variety of insurance products.  However,
neither nonbank subsidiary is material to the financial results of
the Corporation.  The Bank has one wholly-owned subsidiary, ORECO,
which is used to process other real estate owned.

The Corporation was incorporated under the laws of the State of
Ohio in 1997, as a financial holding company under the Bank
Holding Company Act of 1956, as amended, by acquiring all
outstanding shares of the Bank.  The Corporation acquired all such
shares of the Bank after an interim bank merger, consummated on
March 14, 1997.  The Bank is a commercial bank, chartered under
the laws of the State of Ohio, and was organized in 1950.

The Bank provides customary retail and commercial banking services
to its customers, including checking and savings accounts, time
deposits, IRAs, safe deposit facilities, personal loans,
commercial loans, real estate mortgage loans, installment loans,
trust and other wealth management services.  The Bank also
provides cash management, bond registrar and paying agent services
for commercial and public unit entities.  Through its subsidiary
Datatasx, the Bank provided data processing and other bank
operational services to other financial institutions.  Those
services were discontinued in September 2011, and were not a
significant part of operations or revenue.

In October 2010, the Corporation's wholly-owned bank subsidiary
entered into a Consent Agreement with the FDIC which requires that
Tier-1 and Total Risk Based Capital percentages reach 9.0% and
13.0% respectively.  As of March 31, 2012, the Bank's capital
ratios, as previously noted, were not at these levels.

The Corporation and its subsidiaries meet all published regulatory
capital requirements.  The ratio of total capital to risk-weighted
assets was 10.3% at March 31, 2012, while the Tier 1 risk-based
capital ratio was 6.7%.

As reported in the TCR on April 5, 2012, Plante & Moran PLLC, in
Columbus, Ohio, said DCB's bank subsidiary is not in compliance
with revised minimum regulatory capital requirements under a
formal regulatory agreement with the banking regulators.  "Failure
to comply with the regulatory agreement may result in additional
regulatory enforcement actions."

The Company's balance sheet at Sept. 30, 2012, showed $494.19
million in total assets, $458.44 million in total liabilities and
$35.75 million in total stockholders' equity.

$5.40 million total stockholders' deficit.


DEX ONE: Reaches Agreement with Lender Steering Committee
---------------------------------------------------------
Dex One Corporation and SuperMedia Inc. have reached an agreement
with a steering committee representing senior lenders of both
companies on a revised set of amendments to the companies' credit
agreements as part of their proposed merger.  As a result, the
companies have also entered into an Amended and Restated Merger
Agreement.

The credit agreement amendments will:

   * Uphold the basic economic terms and strategic merits of the
     merger as initially announced;

   * Preserve the interests of all investors without any dilution;
     and

   * Extend the maturity dates of the companies' senior secured
     debt up to 26 months until Dec. 31, 2016.

Following the initial announcement of the proposed merger in
August 2012, the lender steering committee was formed to evaluate
the proposed amendments to the companies' respective credit
agreements.  The existing senior credit agreements for both
companies require 100 percent approval from the senior lenders for
the amendments, and the companies are working with the steering
committee to obtain the requisite approval from the remaining
senior lenders.

The steering committee has unanimously agreed to support the
revised credit agreement amendments.

As previously disclosed, in the event the companies obtain
sufficient, but not unanimous, support from the remaining lenders,
either or both companies may seek to finalize credit agreement
amendments and complete the merger by means of a pre-packaged
bankruptcy.

2010.

R.H. Donnelley Corp. and 19 of its affiliates, including Dex
Media East LLC, Dex Media West LLC and Dex Media Inc., filed for
Chapter 11 protection on May 28, 2009 (Bank. D. Del. Case No. 09-
11833 through 09-11852).  They emerged from bankruptcy on Jan. 29,
2010.  On the Effective Date and in connection with its emergence
from Chapter 11, RHD was renamed Dex One Corporation.

Dex One reported a net loss of $518.96 million in 2011 compared
with a net loss of $923.59 million for the eleven months ended
Dec. 31, 2010.

As reported in the April 2, 2012 edition of the TCR, Moody's
Investors Service has downgraded the corporate family rating (CFR)
for Dex One Corporation's to Caa3 from B3 based on Moody's view
that a debt restructuring is inevitable.  Moody's has also changed
Dex's Probability of Default Rating (PDR) to Ca/LD from B3
following the company's purchase of about $142 million of par
value bank debt for about $70 million in cash.  The Caa3 rating
also reflects Moody's view that additional exchanges at a discount
are likely in the future since the company amended its bank
covenants to make it possible to repurchase additional bank debt
on the open market through the end of 2013.

As reported by the TCR on April 4, 2012, Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services raised its corporate credit rating on Cary, N.C.-based
Dex One Corp. and related entities to 'CCC' from 'SD' (selective
default).  "The upgrade reflects our assessment of the company's
credit profile after the completion of the subpar repurchase
transaction in light of upcoming maturities, future subpar
repurchases, and our expectation of a continued week operating
outlook," explained Standard & Poor's credit analyst Chris
Valentine.


DIAL GLOBAL: Obtains Waivers from Lenders Until Jan. 15
-------------------------------------------------------
Dial Global, Inc., previously entered into (i) a Second Amendment
and Limited Waiver to Credit Agreement with the administrative
agent and certain lenders under its First Lien Credit Facility and
(ii) a Second Amendment and Limited Waiver to Second Lien Credit
Agreement with the administrative agent and certain lenders under
its Second Lien Term Loan Facility, pursuant to which those
lenders agreed, among other things, to waive through Dec. 14,
2012, certain events of noncompliance under the Credit Facilities
occurring as of Sept. 30, 2012, and certain of the Company's other
obligations under the Credit Facilities.

On Dec. 14, 2012, the date on which the Waiver Period was
scheduled to conclude, the Company entered into a Second Limited
Waiver to Credit Agreement with the administrative agent and
certain of its lenders under its First Lien Credit Facility and a
Third Amendment and Limited Waiver to Second Lien Credit Agreement
with the administrative agent and certain lenders under its Second
Lien Term Loan Facility.

Pursuant to the terms of the Waivers, the lenders agreed to extend
their respective Waiver Periods and temporarily waive certain
existing and anticipated instances of non-compliance by the
Company with the Credit Facilities, including the debt leverage
and interest coverage covenants set forth in the Credit
Facilities, which instances of non-compliance would otherwise be
expected to give rise to events of default under the Credit
Facilities.  The terms of the Waivers provide that the extended
Waiver Period and the other temporary waivers provided for therein
will terminate on Jan. 15, 2013, or such earlier date on which the
Waivers terminate in accordance with their terms.

Also on Dec. 14, 2012, in connection with the Waivers, the Company
entered into a Second Amendment to Intercreditor Agreement which
has the effect of extending through the date on which the Waivers
terminate, the agreement of the lenders under the First Lien
Credit Facility to not permit the Company's controlling
stockholders or their affiliates to (i) acquire any debt in, or
fund any new debt investment under, the Company's First Lien
Credit Facility or (ii) acquire any debt in, or fund any new debt
investment under, any other debt arrangement that is senior to the
debt under the Company's Second Lien Term Loan Facility.

$380.9 million in total assets, $385.2 million in total
liabilities, $10.5 million of Series A Preferred Stock, and a
stockholders' deficit of $14.8 million.

"... if an event of default under the Credit Facilities occurs and
results in an acceleration of the Credit Facilities, a material
adverse effect on us and our results of operations would likely
result or we may be forced to (1) attempt to restructure our
indebtedness, (2) cease our operations or (3) seek protection
under applicable state or federal laws, including but not limited
to, bankruptcy laws.  If one or more of foregoing events were to
occur, this would raise substantial doubt about the Company's
ability to continue as a going concern," the Company said in its
quarterly report for the period ended Sept. 30, 2012.

                        Bankruptcy warning

"In the event of an acceleration of our obligations under the Term
Loan Agreement or Revolving Credit Agreement and our failure to
pay the amounts that would then become due, the Revolving Credit
Lender or Term Lenders could seek to foreclose on our assets.  As
a result of this, we would likely need to seek protection under
the provisions of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code and/or our affiliates
might be required to seek protection under the provisions of
applicable bankruptcy codes.  In that event, we could seek to
reorganize our business, or we or a trustee appointed by the court
could be required to liquidate our assets."

                           *     *     *

As reported by the TCR on Dec. 27, 2011, Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services lowered its corporate credit rating on Dune Energy Inc.
to 'SD' (selective default) from 'CC'.

"The rating actions follow the company's announcement that it has
completed the exchange offer for its 10.5% senior notes due 2012,
which we consider a distressed exchange and tantamount to a
default," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Stephen Scovotti.
"Holders of $297 million of principle amount of the senior secured
notes exchanged their 10.5% senior secured notes for common stock,
which in the aggregate constitute 97.0% of Dune's common stock
post-restructuring, and approximately $49.5 million of newly
issued floating rate senior secured notes due 2016.  We consider
the completion of such an exchange to be a distressed exchange
and, as such, tantamount to a default under our criteria."

In the Jan. 2, 2012, edition of the TCR, Moody's Investors Service
revised Dune Energy, Inc.'s Probability of Default Rating (PDR) to
Caa3/LD from Ca following the closing of the debt exchange offer
of the company's 10.5% secured notes.  Simultaneously, Moody's
upgraded the Corporate Family Rating (CFR) to Caa3 reflecting
Dune's less onerous post-exchange capital structure and affirmed
the Ca rating on the secured notes.  The revision of the PDR
reflects Moody's view that the exchange transaction constitutes a
distressed exchange.  Moody's will remove the LD (limited default)
designation in two days, change the PDR to Caa3, and withdraw all
ratings.


EASTMAN KODAK: Samsung Settlement Approved, New Loan Moves Ahead
----------------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that Eastman Kodak Co. received approval from the
bankruptcy court on Dec. 19 for a settlement with Samsung
Electronics Co. Ltd. to generate about $39 million in connection
with termination of the consumer inkjet-printer business.

According to the report, the judge also gave Kodak a green light
for soliciting second-lien creditors to determine who elects to
participate in a new $830 million financing to supplement the $950
million loan already in place.  If ultimately approved, the
supplemental loan would include $455 million in new money.  The
new loan will also convert $375 million of existing second-lien
obligations into secured debt created during the Chapter 11
process.

The report notes that one of the conditions to the new loan was
satisfied when Kodak signed up 12 technology companies to pay $525
million for digital-imaging patents.  Up to $630 million from the
new loan can be rolled over on emergence from Chapter 11, assuming
specified conditions are met, including successful resolution of
Kodak's obligations on the U.K. pension plans.

Kodak, based in Rochester, New York, intends to reorganize by
focusing on the commercial-printing business. Other businesses are
being sold or shut down.

Kodak's $400 million in 7% convertible notes due in 2017 traded
Dec. 20 for 12.125 cents on the dollar, according to Trace, the
bond-price reporting system of the Financial Industry Regulatory
Authority.

                        About Eastman Kodak

Rochester, New York-based Eastman Kodak Company and its U.S.
subsidiaries on Jan. 19, 2012, filed voluntarily Chapter 11
petitions (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Lead Case No. 12-10202) in Manhattan.
Subsidiaries outside of the U.S. were not included in the filing
and are expected to continue to operate as usual.

Kodak, founded in 1880 by George Eastman, was once the world's
leading producer of film and cameras.  Kodak sought bankruptcy
protection amid near-term liquidity issues brought about by
steeper-than-expected declines in Kodak's historically profitable
traditional businesses, and cash flow from the licensing and sale
of intellectual property being delayed due to litigation tactics
employed by a small number of infringing technology companies with
strong balance sheets and an awareness of Kodak's liquidity
challenges.

In recent years, Kodak has been working to transform itself from a
business primarily based on film and consumer photography to a
smaller business with a digital growth strategy focused on the
commercialization of proprietary digital imaging and printing
technologies.  Kodak has 8,900 patent and trademark registrations
and applications in the United States, as well as 13,100 foreign
patents and trademark registrations or pending registration in
roughly 160 countries.

next year with the Company's sole supplier of the active

place will allow the Company to obtain adequate amounts of API,
although at a substantially higher price than previously paid, to
supply both the Phentermine tablet product and the soon to be

some of the increase in API pricing could be offset with increased
manufacturing efficiencies.

EMPIRE RESORTS: Partners with EPT to Develop $600-Mil. Project
--------------------------------------------------------------
EPT Concord II LLC and Monticello Raceway Management, Inc., a
subsidiary of Empire Resorts, Inc., entered into a Master
Development Agreement, which defines and governs the overall
relationship between EPT and MRMI with respect to the development,
construction, operation, management and disposition of the
integrated destination resort and community to be developed by the
parties on the 1,500 acres owned by EPT and located at the site of
the former Concord Resort.  More specifically, the parties
envision developing a comprehensive resort destination that
includes the Casino Project, a golf course and a resort including
a variety of amenities.  In addition, the parties have agreed that
the Project will include an aggregate total "qualified capital
investment" of $600,000,000 on the development of the Project in
accordance with statutory guidelines, the compliance with which
the parties agree is essential to the success and viability of the
Project.

In accordance with the terms of the MDA, MRMI will be responsible
for the development and construction of the casino project, which
will include the casino and a harness racetrack and may also
include one or more hotels, food and beverage outlets, a spa
facility, retail venues, space for conferences, meetings,
entertainment and multi-function events and parking facilities.
MRMI has agreed to invest a minimum of $300,000,000 in the

MRMI has agreed to construct the Casino Project such that a
substantial portion of the Casino Project is completed within the
project schedule agreed to by the parties, which schedule
contemplates construction commencing on or about March 31, 2013.
MRMI will then be responsible for maintaining and operating the
Casino Project in accordance with the operating standards
contained in the Casino Lease, to be entered into by and between
EPT and MRMI prior to the commencement of construction on the
Casino Project.

MRMI and EPT agreed to cooperate to consult appropriate
governmental authorities as to the steps necessary to obtain
authorization to relocate the gaming licenses currently used to
operate the Monticello Casino and Raceway to the Casino Project
such that, upon its substantial completion, MRMI will be entitled
to obtain any required gaming license to operate the Casino
Project without the need for any further discretionary action by
applicable governmental authorities.  The development of the
Project is contingent upon various conditions, including obtaining
necessary governmental approval.  The parties also agreed to
continue to cooperate in good faith on the on-going development
plans and have agreed to share certain expenses related to the
master planning work and common infrastructure work.

the execution of the Casino Lease.  In the event of termination,
EPT will reimburse to MRMI any amounts paid by MRMI pursuant to
the Casino Option Agreement.  Following the payment of any
additional amounts accrued pursuant to the MDA, neither party will
have any obligations under the MDA.

ENERGY FUTURE: S&P Cuts Units' CCRs to 'CC' on Debt Exchanges
-------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its corporate credit
ratings on EFIH, TCEH, and EFCH to 'CC' from 'CCC' and kept the
negative rating outlook with the announcement of various exchanges
-- completed and announced -- that S&P views as distressed. "We
kept unchanged EFH's 'SD' rating, reflecting another completed
exchange on Dec. 21, 2012 of senior unsecured cash pay and PIK
toggle notes into new debt at EFIH, and another offer to exchange
the remaining balances of cash pay and PIK toggle notes into more
new debt at EFIH," S&P said.

"We lowered to 'CC' from 'B-' the debt related to the announced
exchange of senior secured debt at EFH and EFIH: 10% senior
secured notes due 2020, EFH's 9.75% senior secured notes due 2019,
and EFIH's 9.75% senior secured notes due 2019," S&P said.

"We lowered to 'CC' from 'CCC' our rating on TCEH's senior secured
revolving credit facilities due between 2013 and 2017, which
contains the revolving credit facility involved in the distressed
offer," S&P said.

"We lowered to 'CC' from 'CCC' our corporate credit rating on EFH
subsidiary EFCH. EFCH guarantees TCEH's senior secured debt (which
includes the revolver) and so falls to 'CC' along with TCEH," S&P
said.

"We revised our recovery rating to '5' from '6' on the senior
secured second-lien debt at EFH and EFIH. This change in the
recovery rating results in a change in the rating on these
securities to 'CCC-' from 'CC,'" S&P said.


ENERGY FUTURE: Enters Into New TXU Energy AR Program
----------------------------------------------------
Energy Future Holdings Corp. and its subsidiaries, Texas
Competitive Electric Holdings Company LLC and TXU Energy Retail
Company LLC, entered into a new TXU Energy Accounts Receivable
Securitization Program.  In connection with the new AR Program,
the parties terminated the existing AR Program.  The new AR
Program is substantially the same as the terminated AR Program.

The material changes incorporated into the new AR Program are:

   * the maturity date of the new AR Program is Nov. 30, 2015,
     subject to a springing maturity provision pursuant to which
     the maturity date of the program will be as early as June 11,
     2014, if more than $500 million of term or deposit letter of
     credit loans under the Credit Agreement, dated as of Oct. 10,
     2007, as amended, among TCEH, Energy Future Competitive
     Holdings Company, the lenders from time to time party
     thereto, and Citibank, N.A., as administrative agent, are
     outstanding on June 10, 2014, or any day thereafter;

   * the maximum funding amount under the new AR Program is $200
     million;

   * the new AR Program includes a financial maintenance covenant
     that is identical to the financial maintenance covenant
     contained in the Credit Agreement;

   * TXU Energy will sell all of its accounts receivable to a
     newly-formed special purpose financing entity, TXU Energy
     Receivables Company LLC, which is a wholly-owned subsidiary
     of TCEH; and

   * the subordinated note that the TXU SPE issues to TXU Energy
     to fund a portion of the purchase price of TXU Energy's
     accounts receivable may not exceed 25% of the aggregate pool
     of accounts receivable.

To facilitate the closing of the new AR Program, including the
repurchase by TXU Energy of all of its outstanding receivables
previously sold under the terminated AR Program and taking into
account the cap on the subordinated note under the new AR Program,
in November 2012, TCEH borrowed $300 million under its senior
secured revolving credit facility.  TCEH's aggregate borrowings
under that facility totaled approximately $1.3 billion as of
Nov. 30, 2012.

As of Nov. 30, 2012, in addition to the approximately $800 million
of available capacity under the Revolving Credit Facility, TCEH
had approximately $700 million of cash and cash equivalents and
approximately $125 million of available capacity under its senior
secured letter of credit facility, resulting in aggregate
liquidity at TCEH at that date of approximately $1.625 billion.
The execution of the new AR Program resulted in a net decrease in
aggregate TCEH liquidity at the closing date of approximately $25
million, excluding the payment of transaction fees and expenses.

                        About Energy Future

Energy Future Holdings Corp., formerly known as TXU Corp., is a
privately held diversified energy holding company with a portfolio
of competitive and regulated energy businesses in Texas.  Oncor,
an 80%-owned entity within the EFH group, is the largest regulated
transmission and distribution utility in Texas.

The Company delivers electricity to roughly three million delivery
points in and around Dallas-Fort Worth.  EFH Corp. was created in
October 2007 in a $45 billion leverage buyout of Texas power
company TXU in a deal led by private-equity companies Kohlberg
Kravis Roberts & Co. and TPG Inc.

Energy Future had a net loss of $1.91 billion on $7.04 billion of
operating revenues for the year ended Dec. 31, 2011, compared with
a net loss of $2.81 billion on $8.23 billion of operating revenues
during the prior year.

The Company's balance sheet at Sept. 30, 2012, showed
$42.73 billion in total assets, $51.90 billion in total
liabilities and a $9.16 billion total deficit.

                           *     *     *

As reported by the TCR on Aug. 15, 2012, Moody's downgraded the
Corporate Family Rating (CFR) of EFH to Caa3 from Caa2 and
affirmed its Caa3 Probability of Default Rating (PDR) and SGL-4
Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating.  The downgrade of EFH's CFR to
Caa3 from Caa2 reflects the company's financial distress and
limited financial flexibility.

As reported by the TCR on Dec. 7, 2012,  Fitch Ratings has lowered
the Issuer Default Rating (IDR) of EFH to 'Restricted Default'
(RD) from 'CC'.  Fitch Ratings has deemed the recently concluded
exchange offer to exchange a portion of the LBO notes and legacy
notes at Energy Future Holdings Corp (EFH) for new 11.25%/12.25%
senior toggle notes due 2018 at Energy Future Intermediate Holding
Company LLC (EFIH) as a distressed debt exchange (DDE).


EXPEDIA INC: Trivago Acquisition No Impact on Moody's 'Ba1' CFR
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service said that Expedia's planned $632 million
acquisition of European hotel search company trivago will not
affect the Ba1 corporate family rating, although a credit
positive.

The trivago investment is consistent with Moody's view that
Expedia will make acquisitions to support revenue growth in a
highly competitive and evolving travel industry. Pro-forma for the
trivago acquisition, Expedia will have spent about $1.25 billion
of cash for acquisitions and share repurchases for the last twelve
months ended September 30, 2012. This is about the mid-point of
the range that Moody's estimated in its "Possible Case 2012"
scenario, as outlined in its Analysis on Expedia dated December
2011.

Expedia, Inc., based in Bellevue, Washington, is an online travel
and booking site.


FEDERAL-MOGUL CORP: Moody's Affirms 'B2' CFR; Outlook Stable
------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service withdrew the ratings on Federal-Mogul
Corporation's proposed amended and extended senior secured term
loan facility and proposed amended senior secured asset based
revolver.

   Ratings at B2;

- senior term loans due 2014 and due 2015 at B1;

- existing senior secured asset based revolver at Ba3; and

- Speculative Grade Liquidity rating at SGL-3.

The rating outlook is stable.

The following ratings were withdrawn:

  B1 (LGD3, 33%) to the proposed $1.2 billion senior secured term
  loan due January 2017;

  Ba3 (LGD3, 32%) to the proposed amended $650 million senior
  secured asset based revolver

The following ratings were affirmed:

  Corporate Family Rating, at B2;

  Probability of Default Rating, at B2;

  Existing $540 million senior secured asset based revolver at Ba3
  (LGD3, 32%), this rating will be withdrawn upon completion of
  the new amended facility;

  $1.96 billion senior secured term loan due December 2014, at
  B1(LGD3, 34%);

  $1.0 billion senior secured term loan facility due December
  2015, which includes a $50 million senior secured synthetic
  letter of credit facility and a $0.95 billion senior secured
  term loan, at B1 (LGD3, 34%)

  Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating at SGL- 3

Rating Rationale

The action follows the company's announcement that is has
withdrawn its previously announced plans to pursue an amendment
to, and the extension of certain loans under, its existing credit
facility. As a result of the withdrawal of the financing plan no
equity has been or will be made under the previously announced
investment agreement. See press release dated December 7, 2012.

FPSDA I LLC: Dunkin' Donuts Franchisee Fails to Halt Class Suit
---------------------------------------------------------------
Bankruptcy Judge Dorothy Eisenberg denied the request of bankrupt
Dunkin' Donuts and Baskin Robins franchisees to halt a purported
class action lawsuit against their officers until their bankruptcy
cases are resolved.

FPSDA I LLC and its affiliated debtors assert that permitting the
class action lawsuit to move forward would work an immediate,
adverse economic consequence upon the estates, because not only
are the Debtors required to indemnify their officers, but the
Debtors are also required to advance the officers' legal expenses
until the lawsuit is concluded.

On Dec. 5, 2011, Lisseth Larin filed a complaint in the U.S.
District Court for the Eastern District of New York against
certain of the Debtors, and against Howard F. Curd, former CEO of
debtor Blue Point Ventures LLC, which exercises general working
control over the operating debtors, and Thadd Smith, Blue Point's
president.  The case commenced by the Larin Complaint is captioned
Larin v. CDDC Acquisition Company, LLC et al., (EDNY Docket No.
11-05921 (ADS)).  According to the Larin Complaint, Larin was
first hired by Debtors at their Commack, New York location as a
clerk.  In July 2010, she was promoted to "shift leader."  Ms.
Larin brings suit not only on behalf of herself, but also on
behalf of similarly-situated "shift lead workers."

The Complaint alleges, in sum, that some of the Debtors, as well
as Messrs. Curd and Smith while serving as officers of the
Debtors, violated provisions of the federal Fair Labor Standards
Act (29 U.S.C. Sections 206-207), as well as New York's Minimum
Wage Act (N.Y. Lab. Law Sec. 650 et. seq. and N.Y. Comp. Code. R.
& Regs. Tit. 12 Sec. 142), with respect to Ms. Larin and other,
similarly-situated "shift lead workers" by, for example, failing
to meet certain payroll obligations, failing to pay required
minimum wage and overtime, and failing to preserve accurate wage
records for a 6-year period running from Dec. 5, 2005 to Dec. 5,
2011.

The Debtors commenced an adversary proceeding in bankruptcy court
to seek extension of the automatic stay to protect non-debtor
parties from the class suit.

In rejecting the preliminary injunction bid, the Bankruptcy Court
held that the Debtors have not shown that bankruptcy policies
would be immediately threatened by the continued prosecution of
the Larin Case. A preliminary injunction would doubtlessly
impinge, to some extent, upon the ability of Larin herself, and
any other potential Larin Case plaintiffs, to pursue their claims
under the labor laws.  "While the concerns embodied in the
Bankruptcy Code are certainly important, this Court cannot say
that they are more important than the policies behind the labor
laws," said Judge Eisenberg.

Mr. Curd served as Blue Point's CEO from around December 2007 to
sometime in the fall of 2008, at which time his employment was
terminated.  Since then, Mr. Curd has had relatively little
significant involvement with the Debtors' operations.
Nevertheless, Mr. Curd is a member of Five Point Partners, LLC,
which is in turn a member of Blue Point.

In May 2009, Blue Point hired Mr. Smith as its president.  Mr.
Smith is the individual primarily responsible for running the
Operating Debtors; the Debtors thus assert that Mr. Smith is
crucial to their reorganization.  Neither Messrs. Curd nor Smith
is a debtor in any pending bankruptcy.

The adversary complaint is, FPSDA II, LLC, et. al., Plaintiffs, v.
Lisseth Larin, Defendant, Adv. Proc. No. 12-08032 (Bankr.

FPSDA I, LLC, sought chapter 11 protection (Bankr. E.D.N.Y. Case
No. 10-75439) on July 13, 2010.  A copy of the Debtor's chapter 11
petition, estimating assets and debts at less than $1 million, is
available at http://bankrupt.com/misc/nyeb10-75439.pdfat no
charge.

Fifteen affiliates of FPSDA I LLC also filed for Chapter 11 on
July 13-14, 2010.  The Debtors are: Commack Road Donuts, LLC;
FPSDA II, LLC; Highbridge Donuts, LLC Metro Shops, LLC; Middle
Country Road Donuts, LLC; Five Points Development Partners, LLC;
Mountain Road Donuts, LLC; Benfield Donuts, LLC; Upper Marlboro,
LLC; CDDC Holding Company, LLC; Miller Place Donuts, LLC; CDDC
Acquisition Company, LLC; D3C, LLC; Kingdom Donuts, LLC; and Blue
Point Ventures, LLC.  The cases are consolidated for
administrative purposes only.

Two entities, 1333 Donuts, LLC and Coram Kitchen, LLC, are not
Debtors, but remain part of the Debtors' larger corporate network.

The primary business of the Debtors has been to own and operate
Dunkin' Donuts or Baskin Robins franchises both in Maryland and in
Suffolk County, New York on Long Island.  Poor store-level
operations, in conjunction with the severe economic downturn,
initially prompted the bankruptcy filings.

On June 9, 2011, the Court approved the sale of six Maryland
locations under 11 U.S.C. Sec. 363.  Upon the sale, the seven
Debtors primarily responsible for the Maryland locations
effectively ceased most business operations.  The remaining nine
Debtors still own and operate seven remaining New York locations
as part of the ongoing reorganization efforts, and the Debtors are
still actively conducting business.  The Operating Debtors
include: (1) Blue Point; (2) CDDC Holding Company, LLC; (3) CDDC
Acquisition Company, LLC; (4) Commack Road Donuts, LLC; (5) FPSDA
I, LLC; (6) FPSDA II, LLC; (7) Five Points Development Partners,
LLC; (8) Miller Place Donuts, LLC; and (9) Middle Country Road
Donuts, LLC.

The Debtors submitted their first amended disclosure statement,
together with the corresponding plan of reorganization, for Court
approval on July 25, 2012.  Approval is still pending.


GARY L. REINERT: Dispute Over PACA Trust Assets Goes to Trial
-------------------------------------------------------------
Bankruptcy Judge Jeffery A. Deller denied the request of Capital
Produce, Inc. d/b/a Capital Seaboard, for summary judgment on its
complaint against Gary L. Reinert, Sr. to determine non-
dischargeability of debt pursuant to 11 U.S.C. Sec. 523(a)(4).

Capital Produce is a dealer of wholesale quantities of perishable
agricultural commodities in interstate commerce, subject to and
licensed under the Perishable Agricultural Commodities Act,
codified at 7 U.S.C. Sec. 499.  In its complaint, Capital Produce
alleges that Mr. Reinert's failure to maintain certain PACA trust
assets constituted defalcation while acting in a fiduciary
capacity.  Mr. Reinert countered that he was not individually
subject to the trust provisions of PACA, was never in control of
any trust assets, and is not a fiduciary for purposes of section
523(a)(4).

Between Nov. 30, 2007 and June 30, 2008, Capital Produce sold
$62,187 worth of wholesale produce and $20,172 of non-produce
items to certain Damon's restaurants owned and operated by Pris-
mm, LLC.  Pris-mm accepted the goods but failed to pay Capital
Produce.  On May 8, 2008, Pris-mm filed a Chapter 11 bankruptcy
petition in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of
Maryland.  Capital Produce subsequently filed a complaint seeking
turnover of the amount of the goods, initiating adversary case
number 09-311 within Pris-mm's bankruptcy.

Mr. Reinert was an owner of G&R Acquisition, Inc., an entity which
assumed ownership and operation of the Pris-mm restaurants through
Pris-mm's bankruptcy action.  On Aug. 20, 2009, Capital Produce,
Pris-mm, and G&R entered into a stipulation, whereby G&R agreed to
pay to Capital Produce a settlement amount of $88,359 in
satisfaction of Pris-mm's debt owed to Capital Produce, and
Capital Produce withdrew its adversary complaint against Pris-mm.

To secure payment of the settlement amount, the parties executed a
Joint Motion for Entry of Judgment, by which Capital Produce
reserved the right to initiate an action against G&R and Pris-mm
in the United States District Court for the District of Maryland
to enforce its claim, "including the trust provisions of the PACA
in the full stated principal amount of that portion of its claim,
plus reasonable attorneys' fees and accrued interest, less any
payments made to [Capital Produce]."  A final order was entered in
the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland, decreeing
that Capital Produce "is a valid trust beneficiary of Defendant
G&R Acquisition, Inc. for a debt in the amount of $32,734.00, plus
interest in the amount of $26,999.89 and attorneys' fees in the
amount of $24,825.92, under Section 5(c) of the PACA, as well as
for an additional debt in the amount of $20,172.00 that is not
subject to PACA."  Both the Stipulation and the Consent Order are
silent as to Mr. Reinert's exercise of control over any PACA trust
assets, or as to any extension of a fiduciary duty under PACA to
Mr. Reinert individually.

Judge Deller said summary judgment in favor of Capital Produce
cannot be entered at this time, because there remains a material
dispute as to whether Mr. Reinert had the authority to direct the
control of the PACA assets held in trust for the Capital Produce,
and thus whether Mr. Reinert was acting in a fiduciary capacity
for purposes of section 523(a)(4).

The lawsuit is, CAPITAL PRODUCE, INC., d/b/a CAPITAL SEABOARD,
Movant, v. GARY L. REINERT, SR., Respondent, Adv. Proc. No. 11-
02465 (Bankr. W.D. Pa.).  A copy of Judge Deller's Dec. 26, 2012
Memorandum Opinion is available at http://is.gd/DnBGL1from
Leagle.com.

Mr. Reinert voluntarily filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection
(Bankr. W.D. Pa. Case No. 11-22840) on May 2, 2011.


GENERAL AUTO: Membership Interests to be Cancelled Under Plan
-------------------------------------------------------------
General Auto Building, LLC, has filed a second amended disclosure
statement in support of its reorganization plan dated Nov. 27,
2012.

Generally, the Plan provides that:

    (a) all membership interests in Debtor will be cancelled on
        the Effective Date;

    (b) North Park Development will purchase a $400,000 membership
        interest in Reorganized Debtor;

    (c) all Insiders and Creditors of Debtor are offered the
        opportunity to purchase membership interests in
        Reorganized Debtor in $50,000 increments;

    (d) membership interests in Reorganized Debtor will be
        allocated pro rata among all new investors; and

    (e) Debtor will operate in the ordinary course and pay all
        Creditors in full or in part over time pursuant to the
        Plan from revenue generated by operations, from cash
        savings, and from the new investment in Debtor.

Reorganized Debtor will pay its Secured Creditors, R&H
Construction, Multnomah County, and Homestreet Bank as follows:

     -- R&H Construction filed a proof of claim in the amount of
$146,946.80 that is secured by a construction lien arising from
certain improvements made to the General Automotive Building.  R&H
Construction believes it is owed the claim amount plus (i)
interest accruing at the rate of 18% per annum until the Effective
Date and (ii) costs and reasonable attorneys' fees.  The Plan
provides that R&H Construction will be paid $178,000 in full
satisfaction of its Allowed Secured Claim on the Effective Date.
Park & Flanders filed an objection to the R&H Construction claim
and initiated an adversary proceeding seeking a determination of
the validity and priority of the R&H Construction lien.  In the
event that Park & Flanders prevails, then the R&H Construction
claim may not be an Allowed Secured Claim.

     -- As of the Petition Date, Multnomah County had a lien on
the General Automotive Building for unpaid real property taxes in
the approximate amount of $90,000.  Multnomah County's Secured
Claim will be paid in full prior to the Effective Date.  The
Debtor anticipates that Multnomah County will have no money owing
to it on the Effective Date and, in turn, no Allowed Claim.

     -- Homestreet Bank's Allowed Secured Claim is secured by a
perfected security interest in substantially all of Debtor's
assets, including rents.  Homestreet will retain its interests in
its Collateral with the same priority that it had as of the
Petition Date.  Homestreet's Claim will be an Allowed Secured
Claim up to the value of Homestreet's interest in the property
securing the Claim.  In September 2012, the Bankruptcy Court
valued the General Auto Building at $10,800,000.  After
subtraction of (i) prior liens determined as of the Petition Date
and (ii) the amount of adequate protection payments, Debtor
believes that the Allowed Secured Claim of Homestreet will be less
than $10,800,000.  Homestreet's Allowed Secured Claim will be paid
in full together with interest at a fixed rate of 4.5%, or at such
other rate fixed by the Court at confirmation.  Commencing on the
first day of the first month following the Effective Date  and
continuing on the first day of the following 11 months, Homestreet
will be paid monthly payments of interest only.  Commencing on the
first day of the thirteenth month following the Effective Date and
continuing on the first day of each month thereafter, Homestreet
will be paid equal, monthly amortizing payments of principal and
interest based upon a 30-year amortization schedule with a balloon
payment of the unpaid principal plus accrued interest due on the
tenth anniversary of the Effective Date.  This means that Debtor
will pay Homestreet approximately $39,938 per month in interest
payments for 12 months, and then pay Homestreet approximately
$53,962 per month in interest and principal for 9 years.  A
balloon payment of approximately $8,551,418 will then be paid to
Homestreet.  After the Petition Dated, Homestreet assigned its
claim to Park & Flanders.  Reorganized Debtor will maintain and
insure the General Automotive Building and promptly pay all real
property taxes as they come due.

General Unsecured Creditors includes PDC's Allowed Claim, which
Debtor believes is unsecured.  Commencing on the last business day
of April 2013 and continuing on the last business day of each
July, October, January and April thereafter until paid,
Reorganized Debtor will pay to each holder of a Class 4 claim an
amount equal to its pro rata share of Reorganized Debtor's Excess
Cash as of the last day of the prior calendar quarter.  Payments
will continue until the (a) holders of Class 4 Claims have been
paid in full together with interest at the Federal Judgment Rate;
or (b) the last day of January, 2023, whichever shall first occur.
However in the event that holders of Class 4 Claims have received
payments totaling at least 60% of their Class 4 Claim on or before
Dec. 31, 2017, then the Class 4 Claims will be deemed to have been
paid and satisfied in full and Reorganized Debtor will have no
further payment obligations.  If Park & Flanders prevails in its
objection to the R&H secured claim, then the R&H claim will be a
General Unsecured Claim.

Small Unsecured Creditors (creditors with claims of $6,000 or
less) will be paid 60% of their Allowed Claim in cash on the later
of the Effective Date of the Plan or the date on which the Claim
is Allowed.  Small Unsecured Creditors will not receive any
interest payment.

General Auto Lessee's Allowed Unsecured Claim will be satisfied by
Reorganized Debtor as follows: On the Effective Date, Debtor will
assign all Tenant Leases to General Auto Lessee and Debtor and
General Auto Lessee will amend the schedule of base rent provided
in Section 4.1 of the Master Lease as necessary given Debtor's
historic and projected financial performance.  The Debtor and
General Auto Lessee restate and reaffirm their rights and
obligations arising from and after the Effective Date under the
Tax Credit Documents, including but not limited to (i) General
Auto Lessee's obligation to fund all remaining tax credit
investments, (ii) TCC's option to sell its membership interest to
General Auto Development Manager, and (iii) General Auto
Development Manager, LLC's right and option to purchase TCC's
membership interest in General Auto Lessee.  The Debtor, TCC, and
General Auto Lessee will execute such mutual releases of pre-
Effective Date claims and such modifications as are necessary or
appropriate to effectuate the intent of the Tax Credit Documents
and conform the Tax Credit Documents to circumstances as of the
Effective Date.

The Allowed Unsecured Claims of Insiders will be subordinated to
the payment of all other allowed unsecured claims.

GEOKINETICS INC: Misses $14MM Payment; In Talks for Restructuring
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Geokinetics Inc. is currently in discussions with certain of its
stakeholders regarding a restructuring of the Company's capital
structure designed to minimize the impact on operations.  In the
event that such a restructuring can be agreed upon, it is likely
that it will be implemented in an in-court restructuring.

The Company anticipates that the restructuring will not involve
any sale of assets or other similar capital raising.

The Company believes the restructuring will preserve its capacity
to continue its operations substantially as previously conducted
and to continue its financial arrangements with its vendors and
suppliers such that, after the implementation of that
restructuring, it will emerge as a stronger financial company.

The Company elected not to make the approximately $14.6 million
interest payment on its 9.75% senior secured notes due 2014 due on
Dec. 15, 2012, and to operate under the 30-day grace period
provided for in the indenture governing the Notes.  The Company
will reevaluate its decision during the 30-day grace period to
determine if it has sufficient funds to make the required interest
payment.

Additional details about this matter is available at:

In the Oct. 5, 2011, edition of the TCR, Moody's Investors Service
downgraded Geokinetics Holdings, Inc.'s (Geokinetics) Corporate
Family Rating (CFR) and Probability of Default Rating (PDR) to
Caa2 from B3.

"The downgrade to Caa2 is driven by Geokinetics' lower than
expected margins in its international markets, constrained
liquidity and weak leverage metrics," commented Andrew Brooks,
Moody's Vice-President.  "The negative outlook highlights the
company's continuing tight liquidity and weak financial metrics
even in an improved oil and gas operating environment."

As reported by the TCR on Oct. 3, 2011, Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services lowered its corporate credit and senior secured ratings
on Geokinetics Holdings Inc. (Geokinetics) to 'CCC+' from 'B-'.
The rating action reflects uncertainty surrounding the costs,
damage to reputation, and effect on operations following a
liftboat accident in the Southern Gulf of Mexico that led to four
fatalities, including two Geokinetics employees and two
subcontractors.


GLYECO INC: Completes Integrated Agreement with Full Circle
-----------------------------------------------------------
GlyEco, Inc., has completed an integrated agreement with Full
Circle Manufacturing, Inc.  Under terms of the agreement, the
company will acquire certain assets and intellectual property of
the Elizabeth, NJ based recycler.

Founded by owner Joe Ioia, Full Circle purchased the New Jersey
recycling facility in 2007.  Mr. Ioia has spent more than two
decades as a leader in the automotive petrochemicals industry.
Under his management, Full Circle has grown to be one of the
largest glycol recyclers in North America.  Projected revenues for
2012 are at $4.3 Million.  The company is known for its ability to
process difficult to clean hazardous waste glycol materials
created by the automotive services industry.  The plant has been
in operation fifteen years.

"As a proven leader, Mr. Ioia has a track record of building great
infrastructure, dedicated teams and an impressive customer base,"
said GlyEco Chief Executive Office John Lorenz.  "With the
aggressive growth plans ahead of us, Joe is exactly the kind of
decisive, seasoned leader GlyEco needs to capitalize on the
unprecedented opportunities on the horizon."

GlyEco plans an unprecedented processing capacity run rate of 10
Million gallons per year at the Full Circle plant during 2013.

The Company plans to leverage key components of this facility to
drive its plan for exponential growth in the underserved glycol
recycling market.  That includes state-of-the-art computerized
control systems, enabling mass production while controlling
quality.  The location is cost beneficial and the plant has
exceptional transportation logistics, a key resource in glycol
recycling.  The facility also has over 3 million gallons of glycol
storage capacity with space available for expansion of storage and
processing capacities.

GlyEco is on schedule to integrate its groundbreaking GlyEco
Technology during the first quarter of 2013.  This technology
improves recycled glycol quality to meet ASTM Type 1 standards ?
indistinguishable from refinery grade glycol.

GlyEco Technology opens the door for the company to expand
services beyond the used engine coolant recycling market.
Services can be offered to an additional four large industrial
markets which create waste glycol.  The majority of potential
clients in these markets do not currently have the option of
recycling this hazardous waste.

As additional consideration to Ioia, the Company has issued
3,000,000 unregistered shares of the Company's common stock, par
value $0.0001.  The Company entered into an Escrow Agreement with
Ioia by which an escrow agent will hold 1,000,000 of those shares
in escrow to secure performance under the Transaction.

                         About GlyEco, Inc.

Phoenix, Ariz.-based GlyEco, Inc., is a green chemistry company
formed to roll-out its proprietary and patent pending glycol
recycling technology that transforms waste glycols, a hazardous
material, into profitable green products.

Jorgensen & Co., in Lehi, Utah, expressed substantial doubt about
GlyEco's ability to continue as a going concern, following the
Company's results for the fiscal year ended Dec. 31, 2011.  The
independent auditors noted that the Company has not yet achieved
profitable operations and is dependent on the Company's ability to
raise capital from stockholders or other sources and other factors
to sustain operations.

The Company's balance sheet at Sept. 30, 2012, showed $1.55
million in total assets, $2.24 million in total liabilities and a
$685,243 total stockholders' deficit.

GRAYMARK HEALTHCARE: Graymark Investments Holds 8.7% Equity Stake
-----------------------------------------------------------------
In a Schedule 13D filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange
Commission, Graymark Investments LLC and Michael B. Horrell
disclosed that, as of Nov. 13, 2012, they beneficially own
1,444,445 shares of common stock of Graymark Healthcare, Inc.,
representing 8.7% of the shares outstanding.  A copy of the filing
is available for free at http://is.gd/3kED2N

                     About Graymark Healthcare

Graymark Healthcare, Inc., headquartered in Oklahoma City, Okla.,
provides care management solutions to the sleep disorder market.
As of June 30, 2012, the Company operated 107 sleep diagnostic and
therapy centers in 10 states.

The Company's balance sheet at Sept. 30, 2012, showed $19.68
million in total assets, $24.29 million in total liabilities and a
$4.60 million total deficit.

As of Sept. 30, 2012, the Company had an accumulated deficit of
approximately $44.5 million and reported a net loss of
approximately $9.4 million for the nine months then ending.  In
addition, the Company used approximately $3.7 million in cash from
operating activities from continuing operations during the nine
months ending Sept. 30, 2012.  In August 2012, the Company
executed a definitive agreement to purchase Foundation Surgery
Affiliates, LLC and Foundation Surgical Hospital Affiliates, LLC,
for 35 million shares of the Company's common stock and a warrant
for the purchase of 4 million shares of the Company's common stock
at an exercise price of $1.50 (assuming conversion of the
preferred stock which was to be issued at closing).  The
Foundation acquisition has not closed and management does not
believe that it will close in its current form due to certain
external factors including the inability to obtain the consent of
certain preferred interest holders of certain subsidiaries of
Foundation.  Management is working on an alternative structure for
the Foundation transaction, but there is no assurance that the
Foundation acquisition will be closed.  On Nov. 12, 2012, the
Company executed a subscription agreement with Graymark
Investments, LLC, in which OHP agreed to purchase 1,444,445 shares
of the Company's common stock for $650,000 ($0.45 per share).  The
proceeds from OHP were received on Nov. 13, 2012, and will be used
to fund the operations of the Company.  Including the stock
proceeds from OHP, management estimates that the Company has
enough cash to operate through Dec. 31, 2012.  Management also
plans on raising equity capital or issuing additional debt in the
near term to meet the Company's additional cash needs in 2013.  In
addition, management has initiated a cost reduction plan that is
estimated will save the Company in excess of $2 million in 2013.
The cost reduction plan includes a reduction in the labor force
and general corporate expenses as well as process improvements
that will result in lower bad debt expense. During the fourth
quarter of 2012, management also anticipates developing a plan to
close certain non-profitable lab locations.  Historically,
management has been able to raise the capital necessary to fund
the operation and growth of the Company, but there is no assurance
that the Company will be successful in raising the necessary
capital to fund the Company's operations.

"These uncertainties raise substantial doubt regarding the
Company's ability to continue as a going concern."

HAWKER BEECHCRAFT: Rejects 2 Pension Plans, Keeps 1 in PBGC Deal
----------------------------------------------------------------
Patrick Fitzgerald, writing for Dow Jones Newswires, reports that
Hawker Beechcraft Inc., is jettisoning two underfunded pension
plans covering thousands of nonunion workers and retirees.  Hawker
also has struck a deal with the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp. to
retain a third "hourly" plan covering more than 8,200 current and
former union workers.

According to Dow Jones, Hawker filed papers in Court minutes
before midnight late Friday evening (Dec. 21).  Hawker said it was
terminating its so-called salaried and base pension plans covering
nearly 9,500 employees and retirees as part of a comprehensive
deal with the PBGC, and the International Association of Machinist
and Aerospace Workers, the union representing its hourly workers.
The settlement calls for the PBGC to take over the two scrapped
plans, which are underfunded by hundreds of millions of dollars,
and in return the agency will get a $419.5 million unsecured claim
against the company. Under Hawker's proposed Chapter 11 plan, that
means the PBGC will recover less than seven cents on the dollar.

The PBGC on Dec. 26 released a statement on Hawker's decision to
keep one of its three pension plans.

"Bankruptcy forces tough choices, but termination of pension plans
doesn't have to be an automatic option," said J. Jioni Palmer,
Senior Advisor and Director of Communications and Public Affairs.
"When Hawker Beechcraft first entered Chapter 11 the company
intended to end all three of its pension plans.  We immediately
engaged Hawker's leadership to convince them that one or more of
their plans were affordable.

"After our talks with Hawker, the company decided to keep its
hourly plan.  While PBGC is the nation's pension safety net, we
only want to step in as a last resort.

"Hawker is expected to seek termination of its two remaining plans
in bankruptcy court. Both are 49 percent funded and collectively
have more than 9,500 participants. We're ready to pay retirement
benefits up to the legal limit of about $56,000 a year for a 65-
year-old. When this process started three pension plans could have
been shut down, so this is a much better outcome."

Dow Jones says Bankruptcy Judge Stuart M. Bernstein will consider
approval of the deal at a hearing slated for Jan. 17, 2013.

The report notes Hawker plans to exit bankruptcy protection under
the control of a group of hedge funds that includes Bain Capital's
Sankaty Advisors.  The hedge funds -- which also include the
distressed-debt-focused Angelo Gordon & Co., Capital Research &
Management Co. and Centerbridge Partners -- will swap $921.6
million in secured debt for an 81.1% stake in the reorganized
company.  All four funds specialize in buying debt at discount to
profit from a troubled company's upside when it restructures under
bankruptcy protection.  Senior bondholders, unsecured creditors
and the government's pension insurer will divvy up the remaining
18.9% in the restructured Hawker.  In all, the restructuring plan
slashes some $2.5 billion in debt off Hawker's books.

unsecured notes.

In July 2012, Hawker disclosed it was in exclusive talks with
China's Superior Aviation Beijing Co. for the purchase of Hawker's
corporate jet and propeller plane operations out of bankruptcy for
$1.79 billion.

In October 2012, Hawker unveiled that those talks have collapsed
amid concerns a deal with Superior wouldn't pass muster with a
U.S. government panel and other cross-cultural complications.
Sources told The Wall Street Journal that Superior encountered
difficulties separating Hawker's defense business from those units
in a way that would make both sides comfortable the deal would get
U.S. government clearance.  The sources told WJS the defense
operations were integrated in various ways with Hawker's civilian
businesses, especially the propeller plane unit, in ways that
proved difficult to untangle.

Thereafter, Hawker said it intends to emerge from bankruptcy as an
independent company.  On Oct. 29, 2012, Hawker filed a modified
reorganization plan and disclosure materials.  Hawker said the
plan was supported by the official creditors' committee and by a
"substantial majority" of holders of the senior credit and a
majority of holders of senior notes.  Hawker said it will either
sell or close the jet-manufacturing business.

The revised plan still offers 81.9% of the new stock in return for
$921 million of the $1.83 billion owing on the senior credit.
Unsecured creditors are to receive the remaining 18.9% of the new
stock.  Holders of the senior credit will receive 86% of the new
stock.  The senior credit holders are projected to have a 43.1%
recovery from the plan.  General unsecured creditors' recovery is
a projected 5.7% to 6.3%.  The recovery by holders of $510 million
in senior notes is predicted to be 9.2% to 10%.

HEARTLAND DENTAL: S&P Raises Rating on $500MM Secured Debt to 'B+'
------------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services raised its rating on Effingham,
Ill.-based dental practice management services provider Heartland
Dental Care LLC's $100 million first-lien revolving credit
facility and $400 million first-lien term loan to 'B+' from 'B'.
"We raised our rating on this first-lien debt because the amount
is $50 million less than originally proposed. We therefore
estimate a higher recovery for first-lien lenders in the event of
default. We revised our recovery rating on the first-lien debt to
'2', indicating our expectation for substantial (70% to 90%)
recovery of principal in the event of payment default, from '3',
indicating meaningful (50% to 70%) recovery in the event of
payment default," S&P said.

"Our B/Stable/-- corporate credit rating on Heartland is
unaffected by the revised capital structure, as is our 'CCC+'
rating on Heartland's second-lien debt (recovery rating '6').
Although Heartland issued $50 million more second-lien debt and
interest rates on all new debt were higher than proposed, we
expect EBITDA interest coverage, now projected to be 2.2x in 2013,
compared with our previous estimate of 2.3x, to remain consistent
with the rating," S&P said.

"The rating on Heartland reflects its 'highly leveraged' financial
risk profile. As of Sept. 30, 2012, pro forma adjusted debt to
EBITDA is 8.2x. We expect leverage to decline to about 6.2x, still
high, within about two years largely as a result of EBITDA growth.
We consider Heartland's business risk profile to be 'vulnerable,'
characterized by its narrow scope of operations in intensely
competitive markets with low barriers to entry. Heartland's
affiliated professional corporations, which are not owned by
Heartland, operate 381 dental care offices in 21 states, with some
concentration in the Midwest and Florida," S&P said.

HOSTESS BRANDS: Workers Fight for Final Paychecks
-------------------------------------------------
While current and former executives at bankrupt Hostess Brands,
Inc., decide how to spend millions in bonuses, hourly workers are
discovering their final paychecks will be short several hundred
dollars in promised vacation pay.

According to a bankruptcy-brokered Employee Retention Program at
Hostess, workers taking part in the shutdown of Hostess facilities
and those workers displaced by the closures will not be paid for
vacation time accrued during the previous year.  The workers were
previously told their earned vacation pay would be included in
their final paychecks.

"This is the latest example of how harshly workers are being
treated in the Hostess bankruptcy," said Jim Price, who
coordinates activities on behalf of several hundred Hostess
employees represented by the International Association of
Machinists and Aerospace Workers.  "Outrageous payments for
Hostess executives are being paid for with outrageous sacrifices
from Hostess workers. There is a crying need for balance here."

In an emotional letter to the judge charged with administering the
Hostess bankruptcy, one employee's spouse urges the judge to
reconsider the priorities of the so-called bonus program.

"My family and our friends are going to be struggling based on the
lack of pay.  While our savings may keep us afloat, it is hard to
say how long," wrote Patricia Saunders of Puyallup, WA, whose
husband was recently notified he would not receive the promised
vacation pay. "At this point, we are going to be lucky to make it
to February."

The IAM represents nearly 700,000 active and retired workers and
is among the largest industrial trade unions in North America.

                       About Hostess Brands

Founded in 1930, Irving, Texas-based Hostess Brands Inc., is known

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.  DHostess Brands disclosed
assets of $982 million and liabilities of $1.43 billion as of the
Chapter 11 filing.

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).

In the new Chapter 11 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 &

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 official committee of unsecured creditors 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.

Hostess Brands in mid-November opted to pursue the orderly wind
down of its business and sale of its assets after the Bakery,
Confectionery, Tobacco and Grain Millers Union (BCTGM) commenced a
nationwide strike.  The Debtor failed to reach an agreement with
BCTGM on contract changes.  Hostess Brands said it intends to
retain approximately 3,200 employees to assist with the initial
phase of the wind down. Employee headcount is expected to decrease
by 94% within the first 16 weeks of the wind down.  The entire
process is expected to be completed in one year.

The bankruptcy judge signed a formal order on Nov. 30 giving final
approval to wind-down procedures. The latest budget projects the
$49 million loan for the Chapter 11 case being paid down to
$21.2 million by Feb. 22.

Exchange Commission its financial report on Form 6-K disclosing a
net loss of US$4.27 million on US$51.14 million of revenue for the

US$5.86 million on US$51.73 million of revenue for the same period
during the prior year.

The Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2012, showed US$21.80

a US$31.82 million total shareholders' deficit.

A copy of the Form 6-K is available for free at:

                        http://is.gd/j5kztH

ICTS International N.V. is a public limited liability company
organized under the laws of The Netherlands in 1992.

ICTS specializes in the provision of aviation security and other
aviation services.  Following the taking of its aviation security
business in the United States by the TSA in 2002, ICTS, through
its subsidiary Huntleigh U.S.A. Corporation, engages primarily in
non-security related activities in the USA.

ICTS, through I-SEC International Security B.V., supplies aviation
security services at airports in Europe and the Far East.

In addition, I-SEC Technologies B.V. including its subsidiaries
develops technological systems and solutions for aviation and non?
aviation security.

Mayer Hoffman McCann CPAs, in New York, N.Y., expressed
substantial doubt about ICTS International's ability to continue
as a going concern following the 2011 financial results.  The
independent auditors noted that the Company has a history of
recurring losses from continuing operations, negative cash flows
from operations, working capital deficit, and is in default on its
line of credit arrangement in the United States as a result of the
violation of certain financial and non-financial covenants.

The Company reported a net loss of US$2.15 million on
US$105.93 million of revenue for 2011, compared with a net loss of
US$8.12 million on US$98.43 million of revenue for 2010.


IMPERIAL PETROLEUM: Has Conditional Settlement in Bank Lawsuit
--------------------------------------------------------------
Imperial Petroleum, Inc., has executed a conditional Settlement
Agreement with the senior lenders for the Company's wholly-owned
subsidiary, e-Biofuels, in regards to the lender's lawsuit against
the Company.  Under the lawsuit the lenders had sought to enforce,
among other things, the Company's guarantee of e-Biofuels' senior
debt in the approximate amount of $7.5 million plus accrued
interest of $0.5 million.  Under the terms of the Settlement
Agreement, the Company will cooperate in the sale of the assets of
e-Biofuels by the lender and subject to the completion of that
sale, the lender and the Company will stipulate to a Judgment in
the amount of $1.0 million with a covenant by the lender not to
execute prior to Dec. 31, 2015.

Jeffrey Wilson, President of the Company, said, "Although the
Settlement Agreement is conditional upon the sale of the e-
Biofuels assets by the lender, a Letter of Intent has been
negotiated by the lender with a third party and should proceed to
a closing soon.  The net result to the Company, upon closing, will
be a reduction of approximately $7.0 million in liabilities
related to our guarantee of the debt of e-Biofuels and the
dismissal of the lender's lawsuit against the Company.  The delay
in execution of the Judgment of $1.0 million until December 31,
2015 is designed to provide the Company with ample time to
establish cash flow from its oil sand recovery business in order
to pay the judgment."

                      About Imperial Petroleum

Headquartered in Evansville, Ind., Imperial Petroleum Inc.
(OTC BB: IPMN) operates as a diversified energy and mineral mining

Claymour field in Todd County, western Kentucky.

As reported by the TCR on June 24, 2011, the Company anticipates
its current working capital will not be sufficient to meet its
required capital expenditures and that the Company will be
required to either access additional borrowings from its lender or
access outside capital.  Currently the Company projects it will
require non-discretionary capital expenditures of approximately
US$500,000 in the next fiscal year to re-establish and maintain
economic levels of production at Coquille Bay.  Without access to
such capital for non-discretionary projects, the Company's
production may be significantly curtailed or shut in and
jeopardize its leases.

In the auditors' report accompanying the financial statements for
year ended July 31, 2011, Weaver Martin & Samyn, LLC, in Kansas
City Missouri, 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 from
operations and is dependent upon obtaining debt financing for
funds to meet its cash requirements.

The Company's balance sheet at April 30, 2012, showed $2.08
million in total assets, $11.92 million in total liabilities, all
current, and a $9.83 million total stockholders' deficit.

"... [W]e have an accumulated deficit and negative working capital
and are in default on the majority of our notes payable as of
October 31, 2012.  These conditions raise substantial doubt as to
our ability to continue as a going concern."

MaloneBailey, LLP, in Houston, Texas, issued a "going concern"
qualification on the consolidated financial statements for the
year ended April 30, 2012.  The independent auditors noted that
Inova incurred losses from operations for the years ended
April 30, 2012, and 2011 and has a working capital deficit as of
April 30, 2012, which raise substantial doubt about Inova's
ability to continue as a going concern.

our ability to find new investors should the financial support

                        About Knight Capital

Knight Capital Group (NYSE Euronext: KCG) --
http://www.knight.com/-- is a global financial services firm that
provides access to the capital markets across multiple asset
classes to a broad network of clients, including broker-dealers,
institutions and corporations.  Knight is headquartered in Jersey
City, N.J. with a global presence across the Americas, Europe, and
the Asia Pacific regions.

At the start of trading on Aug. 1, Knight Capital installed a
trading software to push itself onto a new trading platform that
the New York Stock Exchange opened that day.  But when Knight's
new system went live, the firm "experienced a human error and/or a
technology malfunction related to its installation of trading
software."  The error caused Knight to place unauthorized offers
to buy and sell shares of big American companies, driving up the
volume of trading and causing a stir among traders and exchanges.
The orders affected the shares of 148 companies, including Ford
Motor, RadioShack and American Airlines, sending the markets into
upheaval.  Knight had to sell the stocks that it accidentally
bought, prompting a $440 million pre-tax loss, the firm announced
Aug. 2.

Knight Capital averted collapse after announcing Aug. 6 that it
has arranged $400 million in equity financing with Wall Street
firms including Jefferies Group, Inc., which conceived and
structured the investment, as well as Blackstone, GETCO LLC,
Stephens, Stifel Financial Corp. and TD Ameritrade Holding
Corporation.

Knight has said that the software that led to the Aug. 1 trading
issue has been removed from the company's systems. The New York
Stock Exchange nonetheless said Aug. 7 said it "temporarily"
reassigned the firm's market-making responsibilities for more than
600 securities to Getco, the high-speed trading firm that also
invested in Knight.

"This event severely impacted the Company's capital base and
business operations, and the Company experienced reduced order
flow, liquidity pressures and harm to customer and counterparty
confidence," the Company said in its quarterly report for the
period ended June 30, 2012.  "As a result, there was substantial
doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern."

Following the event of Aug. 1, 2012, the Company has begun an
internal review into such event and associated controls.

Knight Capital's balance sheet at Sept. 30, 2012, showed $8.58
billion in total assets, $7.10 billion in total liabilities,
$259.27 million in convertible preferred stock, and $1.21 billion
in total equity.

On Dec. 12, 2012, CIETAC stated that by virtue of the arbitration
proceedings CSI will pay to LDK Solar approximately RMB248.9
million, including RMB60 million paid as a deposit and additional
cash of RMB188.9 million, to compensate LDK Solar for the loss of
profitability as well as approximately an additional RMB2 million
to cover arbitral fees accrued as a result of this proceeding.

"We are pleased to receive this award after entering into this
arbitration proceeding more than two years ago," stated Xingxue
Tong, President and CEO of LDK Solar.  "LDK Solar is committed to
innovation, quality, and customer service.  Our philosophy is to
invest in building our manufacturing capacity to the right size
for our valued customers.  Regretfully, underperforming supply
contracts contributed to our lower-than-expected plant utilization
ratio.  We strive to offer the best products and services to our
customers so that together we can overcome the current global
industry challenges," concluded Mr. Tong.

LDK Solar Co., Ltd. -- http://www.ldksolar.com-- based in Hi-Tech
Industrial Park, Xinyu City, Jiangxi Province, People's Republic
of China, is a vertically integrated manufacturer of photovoltaic
products, including high-quality and low-cost polysilicon, solar
wafers, cells, modules, systems, power projects and solutions.

LDK Solar was incorporated in the Cayman Islands on May 1, 2006,
by LDK New Energy, a British Virgin Islands company wholly owned
by Xiaofeng Peng, LDK's founder, chairman and chief executive
officer, to acquire all of the equity interests in Jiangxi LDK
Solar from Suzhou Liouxin Industry Co., Ltd., and Liouxin
Industrial Limited.

KPMG in Hong Kong, China, said in a May 15, 2012, audit report,
there is substantial doubt on the ability of LDK Solar Co., Ltd.,
to continue as a going concern.  According to KPMG, LDK Solar has
a net working capital deficit and is restricted to incur
additional debt as it has not met a financial covenant ratio under
a long-term debt agreement as of Dec. 31, 2011.  These conditions
raise substantial doubt about the Group's ability to continue as a
going concern.

LDK Solar's balance sheet at Sept. 30, 2012, showed
US$5.76 billion in total assets, US$5.41 billion in total
liabilities, US$299.02 million in redeemable non-controlling
interests and US$45.91 million in total equity.


LDK SOLAR: Seeking OK to Amend Indenture Governing 2014 Notes
-------------------------------------------------------------
LDK Solar Co., Ltd., announced a solicitation of consents to
proposed amendments to the Indenture, dated as of Feb. 28, 2011,
by and between LDK Solar, the Subsidiary Guarantors, The Bank of
New York Mellon, London Branch, as trustee and paying and transfer
agent, and The Bank of New York Mellon (Luxembourg) S.A., as
registrar, governing its 10.00% Senior Notes Due 2014.

LDK Solar is seeking to amend the Indenture to give it more
flexibility to pursue certain actions in its liquidity and capital
restructuring plan and to enhance its ability to take necessary
actions to improve liquidity and increase cash flow under current
challenging market conditions.

The background and a summary of the Proposed Amendments are set
out as follows:

  () amend the Limitation on Indebtedness and Preferred Stock
     covenant to:

       * add a further category of Permitted Indebtedness that
         will permit LDK Silicon & Chemical or its Subsidiary to
         issue up to US$200 million of a further series of
         redeemable convertible preferred shares for the purpose
         of settling certain accounts payable owed to vendors or
         suppliers of LDK Solar's PRC subsidiaries;

       * add a further category of Permitted Indebtedness that
         will allow Guarantees by any Restricted Subsidiary of
         amounts that remain owed by a Disposed Restricted
         Subsidiary following the transfer of a majority or all of
         the Capital Stock of such Disposed Restricted Subsidiary
         to creditors or investors in exchange for the forgiveness
         or assumption of a portion or all of the outstanding
         indebtedness of such Disposed Restricted Subsidiary
         or the transferring Restricted Subsidiary;

       * add a further category of Permitted Indebtedness that
         will allow LDK Solar to incur up to an aggregate
         principal amount of US$350 million, with limits on the
         maximum aggregate amount that can be Incurred and
         outstanding for each business line and during each
         quarter, to fund the ramp-up of production of
         polysilicon, solar wafers, cells and modules and to fund
         EPC services and solar farm projects;

       * include the series A redeemable convertible preferred
         shares issued by LDK Silicon & Chemical in June 2011 as
         Indebtedness that may be refinanced with permitted
         Refinancing Indebtedness;

       * amend the maximum principal amount that can be Incurred
         and outstanding at any time as Purchase Money
         Indebtedness and Capitalized Lease Obligations from 10%
         of Total Assets to a maximum aggregate principal amount
         of US$780 million.  To date, LDK Solar has Incurred and
         has outstanding approximately US$660 million of Purchase
         Money Indebtedness and Capitalized Lease Obligations.
         The additional amounts would be used to finance the
         installation and construction of property, plant and
         equipment to improve efficiency at LDK Solar's
         polysilicon, solar wafer, cell and module facilities; and

       * increase the maximum amount of permitted working capital
         Indebtedness to US$125 million from US$75 million to
         allow LDK Solar to continue to fund payments of
         outstanding payables, interest expenses, research and
         development expenses and miscellaneous operating expenses
         at LDK Solar's production facilities;

   () amend the Limitation on Restricted Payments covenant to:

       * allow LDK Solar to pay any dividend or other distribution
         on the Series B Preferred Shares, provided that LDK
         Silicon & Chemical and all other Subsidiaries within the
         Polysilicon Group are Restricted Subsidiaries at the time
         of that distribution; and

       * clarify that the calculation of the aggregate amount of
         Restricted Payments will exclude any permitted dividends
         or distributions with respect to the Series B Preferred
         Shares in the same manner as dividends or distributions
         with respect to the Series A Preferred Shares currently
         outstanding;

   () amend the Limitation on Asset Sales covenant to:

       * remove the requirement that LDK Solar be able to Incur at
         least US$1.00 of additional Indebtedness under Section
         3.8(a) of the Indenture when conducting an Asset
         Disposition;

   () amend the Limitation on Dividend and Other Payment
      Restrictions Affecting Restricted Subsidiaries covenant to:

       * allow for any restrictions imposed on the payment of
         dividends or other distributions on the Common Stock of
         LDK Silicon & Chemical or its Subsidiary by the terms of
         the Series B Preferred Shares in the same manner as the
         Series A Preferred Shares currently outstanding;

   () amend the Event of Default provision to:

       * limit the circumstances that would give rise to an Event
         of Default under Sections 6.1(a)(5), (a)(6) and (a)(8) of
         the Indenture to the case of a default, failure to
         satisfy judgment(s), or bankruptcy or insolvency
         proceedings by LDK Solar or any Significant Subsidiary
        (as such term would be defined by the Proposed
         Amendments);

   () the definition of Change of Control to:

       * remove the provision whereby if the Permitted Holders
         beneficially own, directly or indirectly, in the
         aggregate less than 35% of the Voting Stock of LDK Solar
         such circumstance will give rise to a Change of Control;

   () amend the definition of Permitted Investment to:

       * allow Investments equal to the Fair Market Value of the
         Capital Stock of any Disposed Restricted Subsidiary (as
         such term would be defined by the Proposed Amendments)
         held by any Former Holding Company (as such term would be
         defined by the Proposed Amendments) immediately following
         a sale or disposition of Capital Stock which results in
         such Disposed Restricted Subsidiary ceasing to be a
         Restricted Subsidiary;

       * allow Guarantees by a Restricted Subsidiary of
         Indebtedness of a Disposed Restricted Subsidiary in
         connection with transactions in which one of LDK Solar's
         Restricted Subsidiaries agrees to transfer a majority or
         all of the Capital Stock of a Disposed Restricted
         Subsidiary in exchange for the forgiveness or assumption
         of a portion or all of its outstanding debt obligations
         and/or the outstanding debt obligations of such Disposed
         Restricted Subsidiary;

       * allow for the redemption of the Series A Preferred Shares
         of LDK Silicon & Chemical from the proceeds of permitted
         Refinancing Indebtedness; and

   () amend the definition of Polysilicon Subscription Agreement
      to:

       * account for the potential extension of the mandatory
         redemption date of the Series A Preferred Shares issued
         by LDK Silicon & Chemical beyond June 2013.

The record date for the Consent Solicitation is 5:00 p.m., London
time, on Dec. 14, 2012.  The Consent Solicitation will expire at
5:00 p.m., London time, on Dec. 21, 2012, unless extended or

RMB10 for each RMB10,000 in principal amount of the 2014 Notes in
respect of which such holder has validly delivered (and has not
validly revoked) a consent pursuant to the terms and conditions of
the Consent Solicitation Statement prior to its expiration.  LDK
Solar's obligation to accept consents and pay the consent fee is
conditioned on, among other things, there being validly delivered
unrevoked consents from the holders of not less than a majority in
aggregate principal amount of the outstanding 2014 Notes.

                          About Lee Brick

Sanford, North Carolina-based Lee Brick & Tile Company filed a
bare-bones Chapter 11 petition (Bankr. E.D.N.C. Case No. 12-04463)
on June 15, 2012, in Wilson on June 15, 2012.

Lee Brick -- http://www.leebrick.com/-- began its operations in
1951 after Hugh Perry and 10 local businessmen from Lee County
decided three years prior to invest in the business of
brickmaking.  In the late 1950's Hugh Perry bought out the
investing partners, making Lee Brick a solely owned and operated
family company.  Hugh Perry named his son Frank president in 1970,
which he served until 1999 and currently serves as CEO.  Since
1999 Don Perry succeeded his father and serves as the company's
president.  Frank Perry, along with his sons Don and Gil, and
brother-in-law JR (rad) Holton have helped guide the family
business through revolutionary changes in brick manufacturing that
few people in the ceramic industry could have ever anticipated.

Judge Randy D. Doub presides over the case.  Kevin L. Sink, Esq.,
at Nicholls & Crampton, P.A., serves as the Debtor's counsel.  The
petition was signed by Don W. Perry, president.

The Debtor, in its amended schedules, disclosed $27,851,968 in
assets and $14,136,003 in liabilities as of the Chapter 11 filing.
In the original schedules, the Debtor scheduled $27,851,968 in
assets and $14,135,140 in liabilities.  Lender Capital Bank is
owed $13.0 million, of which $6.5 million is secured.


LIFECARE HOLDINGS: Suspending Filing of Reports with SEC
--------------------------------------------------------
LifeCare Holdings, Inc., filed a Form 15 with the U.S. Securities
and Exchange Commission to voluntarily deregister its 9 1/4%
Senior Subordinated Notes due 2013 and Guarantees of 9 1/4% Senior
Subordinated Notes due 2013 and suspend its reporting obligations
with the SEC.  As of Dec. 17, 2012, there were only 37 holders of
the 9 1/4% Senior Subordinated Notes due 2013 and 37 holders of
the Guarantees of 9 1/4% Senior Subordinated Notes due 2013.

                      About LifeCare Holdings

Based in Plano, Texas, LifeCare Holdings, Inc. --
http://www.lifecare-hospitals.com/-- currently operates 27 long
term acute care hospitals located in ten states.  Long-term acute
care hospitals specialize in the treatment of medically complex
patients who typically require extended hospitalization.

LifeCare Holdings Inc. filed for bankruptcy protection (Bankr. D.
Del. Case No. 12-13319) in Wilmington on Dec. 11, 2012,  citing
debt and losses from Hurricane Katrina and saying it plans to sell
the company, according to a Bloomberg report.

The Company reported a net loss of $34.83 million in 2011,
compared with net income of $2.63 million on $358.25 million in
2010.

The Company's balance sheet at Sept. 30, 2012, showed $422.15
million in total assets, $575.87 million in total liabilities and
$153.72 million total stockholders' deficit.

                           *     *     *

In November 2010, Standard & Poor's Ratings lowered its corporate
credit rating on LifeCare Holdings to 'CCC-' from 'CCC+'.  "The
downgrade reflects the imminent difficulty the company may
have in meeting its bank covenant requirements and the risk of it
successfully refinancing significant debt maturing in 2011 and
2012," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst David Peknay.  The
likelihood of a debt covenant violation is heightened by the
company's lack of appreciable operating improvement coupled with a
large upcoming tightening of is debt covenant in the first quarter
of 2011.  Additional equity by the company's financial sponsor may
be necessary to avoid a covenant violation.  Accordingly, S&P
believes the chances of bankruptcy have increased.

As reported by the TCR on Aug. 23, 2012, Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services lowered its corporate credit rating on Plano Texas-based
LifeCare Holdings Inc to 'D' from 'CCC-', following the missed
interest payment on the company's $119.3 million senior
subordinated notes.

In the Dec. 13, 2012, edition of the TCR, Moody's Investors
Service lowered LifeCare Holdings, Inc.'s corporate family rating
to Ca from Caa3 and the probability of default rating to D from
Ca/LD.  The ratings were downgraded because LifeCare filed
voluntary petitions for reorganization under Chapter 11 in the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware.


LOCATION BASED TECH: Issues $1-Mil. Convertible Note to ECPC II
---------------------------------------------------------------
Location Based Technologies, Inc., entered into a Securities
Purchase Agreement with ECPC II Capital, LLC, pursuant to which
the Company issued a Secured Convertible Promissory Note in
exchange for an investment of up to $1,000,000.  The Note is
convertible into the Company's common stock at $0.25 per share,
bears interest at a rate  of 8% per annum and has a term of 6
months.  The loan is secured by a security interest in two of the
Company's patents which the Company considers to be non-core.

                 About Location Based Technologies

Irvine, Calif.-based Location Based Technologies, Inc., designs,

Location Based's balance sheet at Aug. 31, 2012, showed $5.52
million in total assets, $5.75 million in total liabilities,
$430,700 in commitments and contingencies and a $661,566 total
stockholders' deficit.

Comiskey & Company, the Company's independent registered public
accounting firm, included an explanatory paragraph in its report
on the Company's financial statements for the fiscal year ended
Aug. 31, 2012, which expresses substantial doubt about the
Company's ability to continue as a going concern.  The independent
auditors noted that the Company has incurred recurring losses
since inception and has an accumulated deficit in excess of
$45,000,000.  There is minimal sales history for the Company's
products, which are new to the marketplace.

                         Bankruptcy Warning

The Company remains obligated under a significant amount of notes
payable, and Silicon Valley Bank has been granted security
interests in its assets.

"If we are unable to pay these or other obligations, the creditors
could take action to enforce their rights, including foreclosing
on their security interests, and we could be forced into
liquidation and dissolution.  We are also delinquent on a number
of our accounts payable.  Our creditors may be able to force us
into involuntary bankruptcy," the Company said in its annual
report for the year ended Aug. 31, 2012.


LODGENET INTERACTIVE: Payments Deferred to Dec. 31
--------------------------------------------------
LodgeNet Interactive Company has amended its existing forbearance
agreements with DirecTV LLC and Home Box Office, Inc., whereby the
Dec. 17, 2012, payments have been deferred to Dec. 31, 2012, to
allow the Company to continue negotiations with its lenders and a
potential investor on a transaction to restructure the Company.

The existing DIRECTV and HBO forbearance agreements required the
Company to make payments of $26 million to DIRECTV and HBO on
Dec. 17, 2012.  The Company does not have the necessary liquidity
to make those payments and maintain its operations.

In connection with the amendments, the Company will make a payment
to DIRECTV for $2.3 million, representing a partial payment of its
outstanding obligations.  The Company will also make payments to
HBO for $1 million on Dec. 17, 2012, and $1 million on Dec. 31,
2012, representing a partial payment of its outstanding
obligations to HBO and, so long as the second payment is made on
Dec. 31, 2012, the remaining balance currently owed to HBO will be
deferred until Jan. 14, 2013.

The Company said it would be forced to file under Chapter 11 of
the U.S. Bankruptcy Code in December 2012 if it is unable to
obtain sufficient liquidity to make the required payments on
Dec. 31, 2012, which is likely, or those payments are not further
deferred.

LodgeNet also entered into Amendment No. 2 to the Forbearance
Agreement and Second Amendment to Credit Agreement with Gleacher
Products Corp. (successor to JP Morgan Chase Bank, N.A.), as
administrative agent, regarding the Credit Agreement, dated as of
April 4, 2007.  The Amendment extends the date of forbearance to
the earlier of Dec. 31, 2012, or future defaults under the Credit
Agreement and the Forbearance Agreement.  A copy of the Amended
Forbearance is available at http://is.gd/OtJdmu

The Company reported a net loss of $631,000 in 2011, a net loss of
$11.68 million in 2010, and a net loss of $10.15 million in 2009.

The Company's balance sheet at Sept. 30, 2012, showed $291.74
million in total assets, $448.72 million in total liabilities and
a $156.98 million total stockholders' deficiency.

                 Going Concern/Bankruptcy Warning

"The decline in revenue during the third quarter of 2012 and the
payment terms of our vendor forbearance agreements created
liquidity constraints on our operations and related financial
results.  These liquidity constraints and our non-compliance with
certain of our debt covenants have resulted in there being
substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going
concern," the Company said in its quarterly report for the period
ended Sept. 30, 2012.

Historically, the Company followed a practice of reducing
outstanding debt under its Credit Facility by making prepayments
on its debt.  These additional debt payments contributed to the
Company's historical debt covenant compliance.  However, during
2012, the Company's practice of making additional debt payments
was achieved in part by delaying certain payments to its vendors,
including major vendors such as DirecTV and HBO.  During the third
quarter of 2012, each of these vendors required the Company to
enter into payment plans.  In order to maintain continued service
from these two vendors, the Company entered into forbearance
agreements with each of them, which require payments to both
vendors between September and December 2012.  According to the
agreements, the Company's next payments of $10.0 million and $4.0
million to DirecTV and HBO, respectively, would have been due on
Nov. 15, 2012.  The Company did not expect to have the necessary
liquidity to make those payments and maintain its operations.
Consequently, the Company has negotiated a revision to its
forbearance agreement with DirecTV, whereby the Company's November
payment has been deferred to Dec. 17, 2012, at which time the
Company will be obligated to pay them $20 million.  The Company
has also negotiated a revision to its forbearance agreement with
HBO, whereby the Company will make a current payment of $1.5
million to them, representing a partial payment of the Company's
November obligation, defer the balance to December and owe them a
payment of $6 million on Dec. 17, 2012.  The Company has obtained
the consent of the requisite lenders to revise those forbearance
agreements.

"If we are unable to obtain sufficient liquidity to make such
payments, which is likely, or such payments are not further
deferred, we would be forced to file under Chapter 11 of the U.S.
Bankruptcy Code in December.  The Company is in active
negotiations with its lenders and a potential investor in an
effort to structure an orderly bankruptcy process."

                           *     *     *

As reported by the TCR on Dec. 6, 2012, Moody's Investors Services
downgraded LodgeNet Interactive Corp's Corporate Family Rating
(CFR) to Ca from Caa1 and changed the Probability of Default
Rating (PDR) to Ca from Caa2.  The reason for the downgrade is due
to continued weak performance, poor liquidity, a violation of its
financial covenants and the expectation for a restructuring of its
balance sheet in the near term.

In the Dec. 3, 2012, edition of the TCR, Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services lowered its corporate credit rating on LodgeNet
Interactive Corp. to 'CC' from 'CCC'.  "The downgrade follows the
company's disclosure that it is negotiating with its lenders and
third parties regarding restructuring options, which may include a
filing under Chapter 11," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst
Hal Diamond.


LODGENET INTERACTIVE: Signs Letter Agreements with Executives

2012, the Company's practice of making additional debt payments
was achieved in part by delaying certain payments to its vendors,
including major vendors such as DirecTV and HBO.  During the third
quarter of 2012, each of these vendors required the Company to
enter into payment plans.  In order to maintain continued service
from these two vendors, the Company entered into forbearance
agreements with each of them, which require payments to both
vendors between September and December 2012.  According to the
agreements, the Company's next payments of $10.0 million and $4.0
million to DirecTV and HBO, respectively, would have been due on
Nov. 15, 2012.  The Company did not expect to have the necessary
liquidity to make those payments and maintain its operations.
Consequently, the Company has negotiated a revision to its
forbearance agreement with DirecTV, whereby the Company's November
payment has been deferred to Dec. 17, 2012, at which time the
Company will be obligated to pay them $20 million.  The Company
has also negotiated a revision to its forbearance agreement with
HBO, whereby the Company will make a current payment of $1.5
million to them, representing a partial payment of the Company's
November obligation, defer the balance to December and owe them a
payment of $6 million on Dec. 17, 2012.  The Company has obtained
the consent of the requisite lenders to revise those forbearance
agreements.

"If we are unable to obtain sufficient liquidity to make such
payments, which is likely, or such payments are not further
deferred, we would be forced to file under Chapter 11 of the U.S.
Bankruptcy Code in December.  The Company is in active
negotiations with its lenders and a potential investor in an
effort to structure an orderly bankruptcy process."

As reported by the TCR on Dec. 6, 2012, Moody's Investors Services
downgraded LodgeNet Interactive Corp's Corporate Family Rating
(CFR) to Ca from Caa1 and changed the Probability of Default
Rating (PDR) to Ca from Caa2.  The reason for the downgrade is due
to continued weak performance, poor liquidity, a violation of its
financial covenants and the expectation for a restructuring of its
balance sheet in the near term.

In the Dec. 3, 2012, edition of the TCR, Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services lowered its corporate credit rating on LodgeNet
Interactive Corp. to 'CC' from 'CCC'.  "The downgrade follows the
company's disclosure that it is negotiating with its lenders and
third parties regarding restructuring options, which may include a
filing under Chapter 11," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst
Hal Diamond.

LSP ENERGY: Files Plan to Divide Up $272.6 Million Sale Proceeds
----------------------------------------------------------------
Marie Beaudette at Dow Jones' DBR Small Cap reports that Power
plant operator LSP Energy has filed a Chapter 11 plan that would
pay the company's bondholders in full in cash.

"The Plan contemplates the liquidation of substantially all of the
Debtors' assets by way of the Asset Sale, pursuant to section 363
of the Bankruptcy Code," according to the Disclosure Statement
obtained by BankruptcyData.com.

                         About LSP Energy

LSP Energy Limited owns and operates an electricity generation
facility located in Batesville, Mississippi.  The facility
consists of three gas-fired combined cycled electricity generators
with a total generating capacity of approximately 837 magawatts
and is electrically interconnected into the Entergy and Tennessee
Valley Authority transmission systems.

LSP Energy Limited Partnership, LSP Energy, Inc., LSP Batesville
Holding, LLC, and LSP Batesville Funding Corporation filed
separate Chapter 11 bankruptcy petitions (Bankr. D. Del. Lead Case
No. 12-10460) on Feb. 10, 2012.

LSP owns and operates an electric generation facility located in
Batesville, Mississippi.  The Facility consists of three gas-fired
combined cycle electric generators with a total generating
capacity of roughly 837 megawatts and is electrically
interconnected into the Entergy and Tennessee Valley Authority
transmission systems.  LSP's principal assets are the Facility and
the 58-acre parcel of real property on which it is located, as
well as its rights under a tolling agreements.

LSP filed bankruptcy to complete an orderly sale of its assets or
the ownership interests of LSP Holding in LSP, LSP Energy and LSP
Funding for the benefit of all stakeholders.  The remaining three
Debtors filed bankruptcy due to their relationship as affiliates
of LSP and their ultimate obligations on a significant portion of
LSP's secured bond debt.  The Debtors also suffered losses due to
a mechanical failure of a combustion turbine at their facility and
resultant business interruption.

LSP Energy is the general partner of LSP.  LSP Holding is the
limited partner of LSP and the 100% equity holder of LSP Energy
and LSP Funding.  LSP Funding is a co-obligor on the Debtors' bond
debt, and each of LSP Energy and LSP Holding has pledged their
equity interests in LSP and LSP Funding as collateral for the bond
debt.

No statutorily authorized creditors' committee has yet been
appointed in the Debtors' cases by the United States Trustee.

Judge Mary F. Walrath oversees the case.  Lawyers at Whiteford
Taylor & Preston LLC serve as the Debtors' counsel.

LSP has a $20 million secured loan provided by lenders including
John Hancock Financial Services Inc.  LSP was forced into
bankruptcy following mechanical problems that took one of three
units out of service.

Bondholders have claims for $211 million on two series of secured
bonds.  In addition, there was a $3.9 million working capital
facility and $23.3 million in secured debt owing to an affiliate
of Siemens AG, which repairs and maintains the facility.

The Court authorized the Debtors to sell of the facility to the
highest bidder South Mississippi Electic Power Association.

MEDIA HOLDCO: Moody's Assigns 'B1' Corp. Family Rating
------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned Media Holdco, LP (ION Holdco) a
B1 Corporate Family Rating (CFR), B2 Probability of Default Rating
(PDR), and B2 rating to its proposed $255 million Term Loan B due
2018. ION Holdco intends to utilize the net proceeds to fund a
buyout of its other equity holders. In conjunction with the
transaction, Black Diamond Capital Management (Black Diamond) will
become the sole shareholder of ION Holdco, whose primary asset is
an 87% equity interest in Ion Media Networks, Inc. (ION Media).
This is an initial public rating for ION Holdco. The rating
outlook is stable.

Assignments:

  Issuer: Media Holdco, LP

    Corporate Family Rating, Assigned B1

    Probability of Default Rating, Assigned B2

    Senior Secured Bank Credit Facility, Assigned a B2, LGD4 - 52%

Outlook Actions:

  Issuer: Media Holdco, LP

    Outlook, Assigned Stable

Ratings Rationale

ION Holdco's B1 CFR reflects the company's small size and market
position among television network operators, good national
broadcast distribution and channel positioning, reliance on
licensed third party library content for a majority of its
programming, moderate leverage, lack of full ownership of ION
Media and event risks related to equity sponsor Black Diamond's
control. ION Media is in the midst of an ongoing shift in its
programming mix toward syndicated television shows and movies and
away from infomercials. As a result, the revenue base is shifting
toward audience-based CPM advertising and away from infomercials
and direct response, although these two categories still represent
approximately 54% of estimated 2012 revenue. The strategy shift
began in September 2008 and gained traction following the
company's emergence from bankruptcy in December 2009 with revenue
and EBITDA growing significantly over the last three years.

The programming shift is improving ratings relative to those
generated from infomercials but requires a higher level of fixed
content spending. ION Media has demonstrated a disciplined buying
strategy that is in part based on the observable audience ratings
for the programming during its first run cycle. But there are
inherent risks in evaluating the costs relative to the potential
audience and revenue generated from library content including
dependence on continued cost-effective access to third party
programming. This creates less ability to monetize content in
emerging digital distribution outlets as a hedge against
technology-driven shifts in consumer television viewing as well as
exposure to third party content-owners' right to distribute in
emerging distribution channels. Moody's believes these factors
create elevated risk of audience and revenue erosion over the
longer-term.

Client spending on advertising, infomercials and direct response
is also subject to cyclical volatility based on economic
conditions. A growing percentage of fixed programming outlays
creates downside risk to EBITDA when clients pull back on
spending.

Moody's expects advertising revenue to trend higher as more hours
are shifted to scripted programming and away from infomercials.
However, fully monetizing the audience could be challenging due to
the focus on non-exclusive library programming, and on an audience
that is older with lower median household income than most of the
channels with which it competes for viewers. Moody's projects mid
to low single digit revenue growth over the next few years
assuming continued modest economic expansion, with downside risk
should the impact of the fiscal cliff or other factors weaken the
economy. Moody's expects increased marketing investment in an
effort to grow carriage fees (roughly 1% of 2012 revenue) as well
as growing content investment to reduce EBITDA in 2013.

ION Holdco's debt-to-EBITDA is projected to be in mid 3x range in
2013 (incorporating Moody's standard adjustments and programming
spending on a cash basis, and excluding the minority interest
share of ION Media's EBITDA). Moody's expects ION Media to
distribute a portion of its cash flow to equity holders (including
ION Holdco), and to generate approximately $25 million of free
cash flow in 2013 and 2014 after distributions. ION Holdco is
dependent on distributions from ION Media to generate free cash
flow, and Moody's expects the organization will maintain
sufficient liquidity to fund debt service over the next several
years. The large portfolio of broadcast television stations
provides support to asset value.

Moody's is using an above average (65%) mean family recovery rate
assumption that is typical for bank-only structures in Moody's
Loss Given Default Methodology. This drives the one notch
difference between the B2 PDR and the B1 CFR. The B2 rating on the
proposed term loan reflects the structural subordination to the
liabilities of ION Media (including an undrawn $50 million
revolver) due to the absence of upstream guarantees. Because ION
Holdco does not own 100% of ION Media, term loan lenders do not
have full access to ION Media's cash flow and there is leakage to
minority investors for any distributions from ION Media. The term
loan is secured only by the shares of ION Media held by ION Holdco
(currently 87%). This stake could be diluted down to approximately
77.5% if the remaining warrants held by pre-petition creditors are
exercised. Event risk related to Black Diamond's control exists,
including the potential use of cash and additional debt to fund
buyouts of remaining minority investors.

ION Holdco has a good liquidity position for the next 12-15 months
supported by a sizable cash balance at ION Media (approximately
$62 million as of 9/30/12 pro forma for the proposed financing)
and roughly $25 million of projected free cash flow. Moody's does
not expect the company will be reliant on ION Media's undrawn $50
million revolver that will mature five years from the closing. The
cash sources provide good coverage of the 1% required term loan
amortization ($2.55 million). Moody's expects the company to
maintain an EBITDA cushion of at least 20% within the maximum
leverage and minimum interest coverage covenants in the term loan
and revolver.

The stable rating outlook reflects Moody's view that the U.S.
economy will continue to grow modestly, that ION Holdco will have
sufficient cash and cash flow to fund debt service and that ION
Media will continue to increase its programming investment and
generate at least $20 million of annual free cash flow. Moody's
also anticipates Ion Holdco will maintain a good liquidity
position and refrain from debt-funded acquisitions or shareholder
distributions over the next 12-18 months.

An upgrade could occur if the company steadily improves revenue
and cash flow generation, maintains a steady to growing audience
through its content investments, reduces reliance on cyclical
revenue, and sustains debt-to-EBITDA comfortably below 3x. The
company would also need to maintain a good liquidity position to
be considered for an upgrade.

ION Holdco's ratings could be downgraded if debt-to-EBITDA
leverage exceeds 4.0x due to an erosion of audience, revenue or
cash flow generation, or as a result of acquisitions or
shareholder distributions. A deterioration in the company's
liquidity position could also lead to a downgrade. ION Holdco's
term loan rating could be downgraded if the amount of structurally
senior debt at ION increases even if the CFR is unchanged.

The principal methodology used in rating ION Holdco was the
Broadcast and Advertising Related Industry Methodology published
in May 2012. Other methodologies used include Loss Given Default
for Speculative-Grade Non-Financial Companies in the U.S., Canada
and EMEA published in June 2009.

ION Holdco, headquartered in West Palm Beach, FL, is the 87% owner
of ION Media Networks, Inc., which owns and operates the ION
television network through a geographically diversified group of
wholly-owned broadcast stations in the U.S. ION also owns and
operates the Qubo, ION Life and Dyle television networks. Revenue
for the 12 months ended September 2012 was approximately $333
million.

MF GLOBAL: U.S. and UK Units Reach Key Agreements
-------------------------------------------------
James W. Giddens, Trustee for the Securities Investor Protection
Act (SIPA) liquidation of MF Global Inc. (MFGI), and Richard Heis,
a Joint Administrator of MF Global UK Ltd. (MFGUK), jointly
announced that they have reached an agreement to resolve all
claims between the two entities, including the 30.7 client assets
and repo to maturity valuation disputes currently before the High
Court of England. Mr. Giddens has filed a motion with the United
States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York, the
Honorable Judge Martin Glenn presiding, seeking entry of an order
approving the agreement.

Simultaneously, Mr. Giddens and the Chapter 11 Trustee for MF
Global Holdings Ltd., et al, (MFGH), Louis J. Freeh, have agreed
to resolve all claims between their respective estates.  Further,
MFGH and MFGUK have agreed to resolve the claims between their
respective estates and the litigation commenced by MFGH against
MFGUK, subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions.

Combined, the agreements are expected to benefit customers and
creditors of the primary MF Global insolvency estates worldwide:
MF Global Inc., MF Global UK Ltd. and MF Global Holdings Ltd.  The
agreements, which are subject to certain conditions being
satisfied before they become effective, put in place the key
conditions needed for these estates to make significant
distributions by avoiding lengthy and costly litigation, providing
additional certainty on the total value of claims against the
estates and reducing required reserves held against such claims.

"These agreements are in the best interests of former customers
and other creditors and allow us to request court approval for
significant additional distributions for securities and
commodities customers," said Giddens.  "Resolving complex issues
with these entities marks a critical milestone in administering
the MF Global Inc. estate.  The agreements could not have come
about without cooperation from all parties and the involvement of
the Securities Investor Protection Corporation, the Commodity
Futures Trading Commission and the Securities and Exchange
Commission.  We are now focused on court approval, satisfying the
conditions to the agreements and making additional distributions."

"Our agreement with MF Global Inc. will clear important obstacles
and allow us to significantly reduce reserves that have blocked us
from additional distributions to the former customers and
creditors of MF Global UK," Heis said.  "Mainly as a result of
litigation, we have been able to distribute only some 10 percent
of the approximately US$2.5 billion that we have collected.  This
settlement, if concluded, will allow a major escalation in this,
and we will move quickly to get money in agreed claimants' pockets
at the earliest opportunity."

        MF Global Inc. and MF Global UK Ltd. Agreement

As a result of the agreement between MFGI and MFGUK, it is
estimated that between US$500 million and US$600 million would be
ultimately returned to the MFGI estate, depending on final payout
rates from the MFGUK client money and general creditor estates.
Mr. Giddens anticipates the possibility of 100 percent
satisfaction of allowed securities customers' claims and
significant additional distributions to commodities customers who
traded on US exchanges (4d funds) and commodities customers who
traded on non-US exchanges (30.7 funds).  Mr. Giddens has filed an
application for additional distributions with the Bankruptcy
Court.

The Joint Special Administrators will early in January produce a
further updated estimated outcome statement showing the projected
position of MFGUK post-settlement and an estimate of the increase
in the client money distribution percentage and the amount of an
initial dividend.  The Joint Special Administrators will seek to
pay as soon as possible after the settlement becomes effective.

The Joint Special Administrators approached Mr. Giddens and his
team with substantial relevant information developed by KPMG and
the management and staff of MFGUK concerning the financial
position of the MFGUK estate.  This allowed Mr. Giddens to conduct
a detailed review, which determined there is reasonable basis for
the projected payments from MFGUK to MFGI, although the ultimate
amounts recovered are not guaranteed.

The parties are grateful for the cross-border cooperation between
the staffs of Mr. Giddens and the Joint Special Administrators at
KPMG.  The Joint Special Administrators also have welcomed the
assistance the Financial Services Authority has provided
throughout the special administration.

All currently pending litigation between MFGI and MFGUK will be
temporarily suspended to allow for completion of the agreement.
The agreement is not an admission of liability in relation to 30.7
issues before the High Court of England, or any comment upon the
merits of the 30.7 litigation or the legal issues that arise in
relation to it or in relation to the effect of Rule 30.7 of the
United States Commodity Futures Trading Commission.

Conditions that must be completed before the agreement becomes
effective include the Bankruptcy Court making an order that (i)
approves the settlement, (ii) prohibits MFGI 30.7 customers from
making or continuing claims against MFGUK that are duplicative of
claims made by MFGI, and (iii) requires 30.7 customers with
allowed claims with a value of greater than $12,000 to give a
release in favor of MFGUK in respect of any duplicative claims as
a condition to receiving further payment from MFGI. The agreement
is also conditional upon MFGH withdrawing its litigation against
MFGUK.

MGM Resorts International (NYSE: MGM) --
http://www.mgmresorts.com/-- has significant holdings in gaming,
hospitality and entertainment, owns and operates 15 properties
located in Nevada, Mississippi and Michigan, and has 50%
investments in four other properties in Nevada, Illinois and
Macau.

The Company reported net income of $3.23 billion in 2011 and a net
loss of $1.43 billion in 2010.

MGM's balance sheet at Sept. 30, 2012, showed $27.83 billion in
total assets, $18.56 billion in total liabilities, and
$9.26 billion in total stockholders' equity.

                        Bankruptcy Warning

In the Form 10-K for the year ended Dec. 31, 2011, the Company
said that any default under the senior credit facility or the
indentures governing the Company's other debt could adversely
affect its growth, its financial condition, its results of
operations and its ability to make payments on its debt, and could
force the Company to seek protection under the bankruptcy laws.

                           *     *     *

As reported by the TCR on Nov. 14, 2011, Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services raised its corporate credit rating on MGM Resorts
International to 'B-' from 'CCC+'.   In March 2012, S&P revised
the outlook to positive from stable.

"The revision of our rating outlook to positive reflects strong
performance in 2011 and our expectation that MGM will continue to
benefit from the improving performance trends on the Las Vegas
Strip," S&P said.

In March 2012, Moody's Investors Service affirmed its B2 corporate
family rating and probability of default rating.  The affirmation
of MGM's B2 Corporate Family Rating reflects Moody's view that
positive lodging trends in Las Vegas will continue through 2012
which will help improve MGM's leverage and coverage metrics,
albeit modestly. Additionally, the company's declaration of a $400
million dividend ($204 million to MGM) from its 51% owned Macau
joint venture due to be paid shortly will also improve the
company's liquidity profile. The ratings also consider MGM's
recent bank amendment that resulted in about 50% of its
$3.5 billion senior credit facility being extended one year from
2014 to 2015.

As reported by the TCR on Oct. 15, 2012, Fitch Ratings has
affirmed MGM Resorts International's (MGM) Issuer Default Rating
(IDR) at 'B-' and MGM Grand Paradise, S.A.'s (MGM Grand Paradise)
IDR at 'B+'.

lowered Navistar International Corporation's Corporate Family
Rating (CFR), Probability of Default Rating (PDR), and senior note
rating to B2 from B1.  The downgrade of Navistar's ratings
reflects the significant challenges the company will face during
the next eighteen months in re-establishing the profitability and
competitiveness of its US and Canadian truck operations in light
of the failure to achieve EPA certification of its EGR emissions
technology, the significant reductions in military revenues and
substantially higher engine warranty reserves.

downgraded the Issuer Default Ratings (IDR) for Navistar
International Corporation (NAV) and Navistar Financial

NEDAK ETHANOL: Missed $26.5MM Payment; Property Foreclosure Seen
----------------------------------------------------------------
NEDAK Ethanol, LLC, is in default under its loan agreements with
both its senior lender, AgCountry Farm Credit Services, FLCA, and
its tax increment financing lender, Arbor Bank and both the Senior
Lender and the TIF lender have accelerated the repayment of all
amounts due under the respective loan agreements and informed the
Company that they intend to exercise their remedies under the
respective loan agreements and take those actions as deemed
necessary or desirable to protect their interest in the collateral
which includes all or substantially all of the assets of the
Company.

The Senior Lender recorded a Substitution of Trustee under the
Deed of Trust, Security Agreement, Assignment of Leases and Rents
and Fixture Financing Statement, as amended, which secures the
indebtedness under the Senior Lender loan documents and on Oct. 8,
2012, the substitute trustee recorded a Notice of Default and
Election to Sell the trust property.  The trust property includes
the plant site, the transload site, the Company's leased property
and easements.

The Company had two months following the recording of the Election
to Sell Notice to cure the defaults under the Senior Lender loan
agreements and pay the entire unpaid principal sum secured by the
Deed of Trust in the amount of $25,497,877, accrued late charges
in the amount of $163,672 and accrued interest which was $828,345
as of Oct. 9, 2012.  The two-month cure period lapsed on Dec. 8,
2012, and the Company has not cured the defaults under the Senior
Lender loan documents.  Because the Company did not cure the
defaults, the substitute trustee has the right to initiate
foreclosure proceedings to sell the trust property at a sheriff's
sale in accordance with applicable law in order to satisfy the
unpaid obligations of the Company under the Senior Lender loan
agreements.

The Company continues to explore all of its options including,
without limitation (i) continued discussions with the Senior
Lender and the TIF Lender, (ii) seeking new sources of financing
and (iii) searching for potential purchasers of the Company or its
assets.  However, the Company can give no assurance that it will
obtain sufficient funds from any sources to enable the Company to
cure the defaults under its loan agreements with its lenders or
that if it can obtain any additional financing, that such
financing would be sufficient to restart production at the plant
and commence operations.  The Company also can give no assurance
that it will be able to find a potential purchaser of the Company
or its assets, reach any agreement with its lenders that will
enable the Company to restructure its current indebtedness or
otherwise avoid the initiation and completion of the foreclosure
proceedings.

The Company expects that if a foreclosure sale is completed, upon
the conclusion of the foreclosure proceedings, there will not be
any monies or assets available to distribute to its members or
creditors other than the Senior Lender.

agreement with AgCountry Farm Credit Services FCA regarding a
senior secured credit facility.  As of Dec. 31, 2010, and
throughout 2011, the Company was in violation of several loan
covenants required under the original credit agreement and
therefore, the Company was in default under the credit agreement.
However, the Company entered into a forbearance agreement with
AgCountry which remained effective until June 30, 2011.  This
default resulted in all debt under the original credit agreement
being classified as current liabilities effective as of Dec. 31,
2010.  The loan covenants under the original credit agreement
included requirements for minimum working capital of $6,000,000,
minimum current ratio of 1.20:1.00, minimum tangible net worth of

parties agreed to restructure and re-document the loans and other
credit facilities provided by AgCountry.

Under the amended agreement, the Company is required to make level
monthly principal payments of $356,164 through Feb. 1, 2018.
Beginning on Sept. 30, 2012, and the last day of the first,
second, and third quarters thereafter, the Senior Lender will make

excess of $3,600,000 to be applied to the principal balance.  In
addition, the Company is required to make monthly interest
payments at the one month LIBOR plus 5.5%, but not less than 6.0%.
The interest rate was 6.0% as of Dec. 31, 2011.  In addition to
the monthly scheduled payments, the Company made a special
principal payment in the amount of $7,105,272 on Dec. 31, 2011.
As of Dec. 31, 2011, and 2010, the Company had $26,000,000 and
$38,026,321 outstanding on the loan, respectively.


NEW ENERGY: Ethanol Plant Goes Up for Auction Jan. 29
-----------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that the 100 million-gallon-a-year ethanol plant near
South Bend, Indiana, belonging to New Energy Corp. goes up for

the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in South Bend, Indiana, bids are due
initially on Jan. 23.  A hearing to approve the sale is set for
Feb. 5. New Energy filed for Chapter 11 protection on Nov. 9.

The report notes that the U.S. Energy Department, a secured term-
loan lender owed $33.3 million, demanded a Chapter 11 sale after
violation of the latest forbearance agreement.  There is a secured

NEW ENGLAND: Files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy
--------------------------------------------
New England Compounding Center has filed for protection under
Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.  The filing, which was
made in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of
Massachusetts, seeks to establish a fund to compensate individuals
and families affected by a nationwide meningitis outbreak.  In
papers filed with the court, the company said its goal is to
provide a greater, quicker, fairer payout to its creditors than
they could achieve through piecemeal litigation.

The company also announced the appointment of Keith D. Lowey as
Independent Director of NECC and as the company's Chief
Restructuring Officer.  Mr. Lowey will be responsible for NECC's
effort to establish the Compensation Fund and commence payments to
affected parties.

"This will be a cooperative effort," said Lowey, who is a
Principal in the Financial Consulting firm Verdolino & Lowey.  "We
want to assemble a substantial fund, and then distribute it fairly
and efficiently to those who are entitled to relief."

Lowey said that NECC seeks to forge a consensual, comprehensive
resolution of claims which will be funded by agreements reached
among the claimants, the Company, its insurers and other parties
with potential liability for the meningitis cases.  All such
claims will be addressed in U.S. Bankruptcy court.

Mr. Lowey will be in charge of NECC's conduct of the Chapter 11
case and its effort to work cooperatively with those impacted by
the meningitis outbreak.

"We want to confirm the Chapter 11 plan establishing the
Compensation Fund as soon as possible," Lowey said.

To accomplish this goal, NECC's bankruptcy counsel, Daniel Cohn of
Murtha Cullina LLP, emphasized that claimants and their lawyers
will be actively involved.  "We expect that a committee of
meningitis claimants will be appointed to represent the entire
group," said Cohn.  "That will help assure that an appropriate
amount will be collected and contributed to the Compensation Fund,
and that the money will be distributed fairly."

"Many families across the U.S. have been impacted by this great
tragedy, and it is difficult to comprehend the sense of loss so
many people have experienced.  Everyone associated with New
England Compounding Center shares that sense of loss," Lowey said.
"We recognize the need to compensate those affected by the
meningitis outbreak fairly and appropriately.  We hope that by
establishing this Fund under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy
Code, those families impacted by this tragedy may be compensated
as quickly as is possible."

process and protecting 6,000 jobs, and to Judge Robert Drain for

NEWPAGE CORP: S&P Ups Corp. Credit Rating to 'B+'; Outlook Stable
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services raised its corporate credit
rating on Miamisburg, Ohio-based NewPage Corp. to 'B+' from 'D'.
The outlook is stable.

"We also assigned a 'BB' (two notches above the corporate credit
rating) issue-level rating with a recovery rating of '1' to the
company's $500 million senior secured term loan. The '1' recovery
rating incorporates our expectation of very high (90% to 100%)
recovery of principal in the event of a post emergence default by
the company," S&P said.

"The rating actions follow NewPage's announcement that it has
emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection pursuant to its
Modified Fourth Amended Chapter 11 Plan, confirmed on Dec. 14,
2012, by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court," said Standard & Poor's credit
analyst Tobias Crabtree. "In conjunction with the plan, NewPage
closed on its exit financing, consisting of a five-year $350
million senior secured revolving credit facility and six-year,
$500 million senior secured term loan. The company has reduced its
total reported debt to $500 million from over $4 billion and
lowered its annual interest expense by approximately $345 million
to about $45 million," added Mr. Crabtree.

"The 'B+' corporate credit rating reflects our view of NewPage's
'vulnerable' business risk profile derived from its limited
product and geographic diversity, substitution risks due to
changing customer preferences for greater electronic content, and
vulnerability to fluctuations in volatile coated paper selling
prices and raw material and energy costs. Our ratings also
incorporate our assessment of the company's 'significant'
financial risk and 'strong' liquidity position. In our view, post-
emergence credit measures benefit from a substantial reduction in
total debt and interest expense such that leverage is likely to be
maintained below 3.5x and interest coverage to exceed 5x over the
next 12 to 18 months. In addition, the company's strong liquidity
position results from the financial flexibility afforded by the
absence of near-term debt maturities and financial maintenance
covenants and good prospects for free cash flow generation even
under a stressed scenario," S&P said.

"Our forecast for 2012 and 2013 EBITDA for the reorganized NewPage
reflects a cautious economic outlook over this period. Our
forecast incorporates our view that demand for coated paper, which
constitutes over 70% of the company's sales, will continue to be
challenged by weak advertising spending and continuing shifts in
consumer preferences for electronic content away from paper-based
sources. The stable rating outlook is supported by the NewPage's
strong liquidity position and significant debt and interest
expense reduction post-emergence, which we anticipated will result
in good free cash flow generation over the next year. We believe
the company's low leverage affords it significant financial
flexibility over the near-to-intermediate term to meet its capital
expenditure requirements and withstand the secular decline in its
coated paper end markets and vulnerability of earnings to changes
in coated paper prices and input costs," S&P said.

"An upgrade is limited by our assessment of NewPage's vulnerable
business risk given the substantial challenges facing the North
American coated paper industry. In addition, ratings upside is
limited by the likely influence that the new equity owners will
have over financial policy, such as dividends," S&P said.

"We could downgrade the company if its financial profile were
revised to 'aggressive' as a result of leverage exceeding 4x and
FFO to debt declining to the mid-teen percentage range on a
sustained basis. For this to occur, EBITDA would have to decline
in excess of 20% from our 2012 forecast. We view this as a low
probability event over the upcoming year, most likely triggered by
a U.S. recession accelerating the decline in coated paper demand
and pressuring coated paper prices," S&P said.


ORAGENICS INC: Board OKs $80,000 2012 Incentive Awards for Execs.
-----------------------------------------------------------------

receive $5,000; and Martin Handfield, vice-president, Research and
Development, will receive $5,000.

determination that Dr. Bonfiglio has met certain of the previously
established performance goals.  The bonuses for Mr. Sullivan and
Mr. Handfield were discretionary awards determined by the

In its audit report on the Company's 2011 financial statements,
Mayer Hoffman McCann P.C., in Clearwater, Florida, expressed
substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a
going concern.  The independent auditors noted that the Company
has incurred recurring operating losses, negative operating cash
flows and has an accumulated deficit.

The Company reported a net loss of $7.67 million in 2011, compared
with a net loss of $7.80 million in 2010.

The Company's balance sheet at Sept. 30, 2012, showed $12.58
million in total assets, $1.75 million in total liabilities, all
current, and $10.83 million in total shareholders' equity.

                         Bankruptcy Warning

The Company said in its annual report for the year ended Dec. 31,
2011, that its loan agreement with the Koski Family Limited
Partnership matures in three years and select material assets of
the Company relating to or connected with its ProBiora3, SMaRT
Replacement Therapy, MU1140 and LPT3-04 technologies have been
pledged as collateral to secure the Company's borrowings under the
Loan Agreement.  This secured indebtedness could impede the
Company from raising the additional equity or debt capital the
Company needs to continue its operations even though the amount
borrowed under the Loan Agreement automatically converts into
equity upon a qualified equity financing of at least $5 million.
The Company's ability to repay the loan will depend largely upon
the Company's future operating performance and the Company cannot
assure that its business will generate sufficient cash flow or
that the Company will be able to raise the additional capital
necessary to repay the loan.  If the Company is unable to generate
sufficient cash flow or are otherwise unable to raise the funds
necessary to repay the loan when it becomes due, the KFLP could
institute foreclosure proceedings against the Company's material
intellectual property assets and the Company could be forced into
bankruptcy or liquidation.

PINNACLE ENTERTAINMENT: Ameristar Deal No Impact on Moody's CFR
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service said Pinnacle Entertainment, Inc.'s
announcement that it has entered into a definitive agreement to

PTC ALLIANCE: S&P Assigns 'B' Corp. Credit Rating; Outlook Stable
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its 'B' corporate
credit rating to Wexford, Penn.-based PTC Alliance Holdings Corp.
The outlook is stable.

"At the same time, we assigned our 'B+' issue-level rating to the
company's $70 million senior secured term loan due 2016 and $50
million senior secured term loan due 2018. The recovery rating on
the loans is '2', indicating our expectation that lenders would
receive substantial (70% to 90%) recovery in the event of payment
default under our default scenario," S&P said.

"The company intends to use the proceeds from the offering, along
with $36 million in balance sheet cash for a $151 million
selective share repurchase," S&P said.

"The rating on PTC reflects our view of the company's 'vulnerable'
business risk profile and 'aggressive' financial risk profile,"
said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Chiza B. Vitta. "Our
assessment of PTC's business risk as vulnerable incorporates our
view of the company's dependence on a single product line for most
of its EBITDA, as well as our view that its operations lack size
and scope and are relatively small compared with several of its
competitors. Although the company has reduced its operating costs
since emerging from Chapter 11 in August 2010, it still depends on
the cyclical manufacturing and automotive segments for a large
portion of its earnings and is subject to volatile demand and
pricing. Our view of PTC's financial risk profile considers the
risk that the company may be unable to adjust its operating costs
or pass through raw material costs (mainly steel) to customers
in a timely manner, or that cyclical volume declines could be
severe enough to significantly reduce operating performance and
stress liquidity. It also factors in our view of the company's
financial policy, which incorporates the possibility that the
company may pursue further debt-financed dividends to its private
equity ownership. Still, we believe PTC's end markets have
performed relatively well recently and should be strong enough to
support performance at levels that are sufficient to support the
rating and provide adequate liquidity to meet the company's
obligations during the next several quarters," S&P said.

"PTC is a manufacturer of welded and drawn over mandrel steel
tubes, cold drawn seamless tubes, electric resistance welded
tubes, and chrome-plated bars and tubes. The company's operating
segments include drawn-over mandrel tubing, which is used in
hydraulic cylinders and automotive components; Enduro, which
produces chrome-plated and nano-cobalt phosphorous plated bars and
tubes for piston rods for hydraulic chambers; and the tubular
products segment, which makes electrical resistance-welded tubing
used in automotive applications. PTC maintains a leading market
position in the DOM market, which constitutes nearly 90% of its
EBITDA and is subject to customer concentration, as its top five
customers account for about 40% of total revenues. The company
sells products directly to original equipment manufacturers (OEM)
and to steel service centers that resell the products in smaller
quantities to end users. PTC's manufacturing facilities are
situated near to the company's customers and suppliers, resulting
in reduced distribution costs. The stable rating outlook reflects
our expectation that credit metrics will remain at a level we
would consider to be in line with the rating over the next few
quarters, given our view of PTC's vulnerable business risk
profile. Specifically, we expect total adjusted debt-to-EBITDA of
about 1.5x through the end of fiscal 2013, based on our assumption
that the company's operating performance will improve modestly
amid a gradual economic recovery. We expect EBITDA to be in the
$65 million to $85 million range during that period and we expect
the company to maintain adequate liquidity to meet its
obligations," S&P said.

"We could lower the rating if operating results deteriorate
markedly due to significant weakening of demand from the company's
key end markets and margins decline substantially. We could also
lower the rating if the company pursues an additional debt-
financed distribution, such that we expected in leverage to remain
above 5.0x on a sustained basis.  Given the negative free
operating cash flows expected for 2013, coupled with pro forma
liquidity limited to availability under the revolver, we will be
monitoring how liquidity is affected by upcoming expansion
projects; ratings could be lowered if liquidity is reduced or
becomes constrained," S&P said.

"We consider a positive rating action less likely in the near term
given our view of PTC's vulnerable business risk profile and our
expectation for only a modest improvement in the operating
performance over the next several years. The uncertainty relative
to financial policy and the possibility of further debt-financed
dividends will be a key rating factor going forward," S&P said.


RESIDENTIAL CAPITAL: Judge Peck to Serve as Mediator
----------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reported the reorganization of Residential Capital LLC, the
mortgage-servicing subsidiary of Ally Financial Inc., is
chockablock with present and former New York bankruptcy judges.

The report relates that at a hearing Dec. 20, U.S. Bankruptcy
Judge Martin Glenn said he will appoint fellow Bankruptcy Judge
James Peck to mediate disputes among creditors, Ally and ResCap,
including the proposed settlement where Ally would pay $750
million in exchange for immunity from lawsuits and claims of
creditors.

The report recounts that Arthur J. Gonzalez, a former Manhattan
bankruptcy judge, is ResCap's examiner.  He was appointed in July
to investigate Ally and Cerberus Capital Management LP, ResCap's
proposed sale and reorganization plan, the role of ResCap's board,
alternatives to ResCap's proposals, claims against officers and
directors, claims ResCap proposes to release, and the value of the
releases.

Mr. Rochelle notes that as a result of the appointment of
mediation, there could be a settlement before Judge Gonzalez
release his report, even though Gonzalez originally estimated the
report would cost between $29 million and $36 million.  When Judge
Gonzalez sought another two months to finish the report, he said
the cost might rise.  Even if there is a settlement before Judge
Gonzalez concludes his investigation, the report could assist
Judge Glenn in deciding if the settlement is within the range of
reasonableness and should be approved.

The report points out that in the bankruptcy reorganization of
Dynegy Holdings LLC, a different judge appointed an examiner who
issued his report more quickly and then became the mediator.  In
the role of mediator, the examiner had the benefit of detailed
knowledge of the facts and contentions among the parties.  Armed
with the facts, the Dynegy examiner-mediator quickly brought the
parties to settlement.

On Dec. 20, Judge Glenn extended ResCap's exclusive right to
propose a Chapter 11 plan until Feb. 28. Originally, Glenn said he
wouldn't permit creditors to vote on ResCap's reorganization plan
until the examiner's report is completed.

ResCap's $2.1 billion in third-lien 9.625% secured notes due in
2015 last traded Dec. 18 for 105.125 cents on the dollar,
according to Trace, the bond-price reporting system of the
Financial Industry Regulatory Authority.  The $473.4 million
of ResCap senior unsecured notes due in April 2013 last traded
Dec. 20 for 19.642 cents on the dollar, a 17% decline since the
last trade in November, according to Trace.

                     About Residential Capital

Residential Capital LLC, the unprofitable mortgage subsidiary of
Ally Financial Inc., filed for bankruptcy protection (Bankr.
S.D.N.Y. Lead Case No. 12-12020) on May 14, 2012.

Neither Ally Financial nor Ally Bank is included in the bankruptcy
filings.

ResCap, one of the country's largest mortgage originators and
servicers, was sent to Chapter 11 with 50 subsidiaries amid
"continuing industry challenges, rising litigation costs and
claims, and regulatory uncertainty," according to a company
statement.

ResCap disclosed $15.68 billion in assets and $15.28 billion in
liabilities as of March 31, 2012.

Ray C. Schrock, Esq., at Kirkland & Ellis LLP, in New York, serves
as counsel to Ally Financial.

The Bankruptcy Court in November 2012 approved ResCap's sale of
its mortgage servicing and origination platform assets to Ocwen
Loan Servicing, LLC and Walter Investment Management Corporation
for $3 billion; and its portfolio of roughly 50,000 whole loans to
Berkshire Hathaway for $1.5 billion.  The sale of the assets,
subject to satisfaction of customary closing conditions including
certain third party consents, is expected to close in the first
quarter of 2013.

The partnership of Ocwen and Walter defeated the last bid of $2.91
billion from Fortress Investment Group's Nationstar Mortgage
Holdings Inc., which acted as stalking horse bidder, at an auction
that began Oct. 23, 2012.  The $1.5 billion offer from Warren
Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway Inc. was declared the winning bid for
a portfolio of loans at the auction on Oct. 25.

Policy, which applies to the Company's Chief Executive Officer and
each of the Company's non-employee directors.  The Ownership
Policy provides that the covered persons must have direct
ownership of the Company's common stock in an amount equal to at
least three times the amount of that covered person's annual cash
retainer or base salary, as applicable, which such amount will be
determined by multiplying the number of shares owned by that
covered person by the closing price of those shares on the date on
which that evaluation is made.  Each covered person will have a
period of five years to comply with the ownership requirements set
forth in the Ownership Policy starting from the later of the
adoption of the Ownership Policy or the date that individual
becomes a covered person.

The Board also approved certain amendments to stock options to
purchase common stock held by Harry F. Hixson, Jr., the Company's
Chief Executive Officer.  The 2012 Options were amended to
retroactively provide that 50% of the shares subject to the 2012
Options will only become exercisable if a performance condition is
met.  The performance condition requires the price of the
Company's common stock to appreciate such that the closing sales
price as quoted on any established stock exchange or market is a
minimum of a 25% premium to the exercise price of the 2012 Options
for at least 30 consecutive trading days.  The amendment to the
2012 Options became effective immediately with Dr. Hixson's
consent.

SINCLAIR BROADCAST: Completes Acquisitions of TV Stations
---------------------------------------------------------
Sinclair Broadcast Group, Inc., has closed on the previously
announced acquisitions of certain television stations and, in a
new announcement, purchased WHAM-TV (ABC) in Rochester, NY, from
Newport Television LLC.

The stations acquired in the transactions that have closed,
effective Dec. 1, 2012, are:

  WTTA (MNT) Tampa, Florida previously operated by Sinclair

Sinclair also acquired Newport's rights under the local marketing
agreements with WLYH (CW) in Harrisburg, PA, and KMTW (MNT) in
Wichita, KS, as well as options to acquire the license assets.

The Company also closed on agreements with Deerfield Media, Inc.,
selling Deerfield the license assets of Sinclair's station in San

sale proceeds, was $459.7 million, which was funded by the
issuance of $500 million of 6.125% senior notes due 2022 earlier

                     About Sinclair Broadcast

Based in Baltimore, Maryland, Sinclair Broadcast Group, Inc.

and operates, programs or provides sales services to 58 television
stations in 35 markets.  The Company's television group reaches

ABC, CBS, NBC, MNT, and CW affiliates.

The Company said in the Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31,
2012, that any insolvency or bankruptcy proceeding relating to
Cunningham, one of its LMA partners, would cause a default and
potential acceleration under a Bank Credit Agreement and could,
potentially, result in Cunningham's rejection of the Company's
seven LMAs with Cunningham, which would negatively affect the
Company's financial condition and results of operations.

The Company's balance sheet at Sept. 30, 2012, showed
$2.24 billion in total assets, $2.29 billion in total liabilities,
and a $52.38 million total deficit.

As reported by the TCR on Feb. 24, 2011, Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services raised its corporate credit rating on Hunt Valley, Md.-
based TV broadcaster Sinclair Broadcast Group Inc. to 'BB-' from
'B+'.  The rating outlook is stable.  "The 'BB-' rating on
Sinclair reflects S&P's expectation that the company could keep
its lease-adjusted debt to EBITDA below historical levels
throughout the election cycle, absent a reversal of economic
growth, meaningful debt-financed acquisitions, or significant
shareholder-favoring measures," explained Standard & Poor's credit
analyst Deborah Kinzer.

In September 2010, Moody's raised its ratings for Sinclair
Broadcast and subsidiary Sinclair Television Group, Inc.,
including the Corporate Family Rating and Probability-of-Default
Rating, each to Ba3 from B1, and the ratings for individual debt
instruments.  Moody's also assigned a B2 (LGD 5, 87%) rating to
the proposed $250 million issuance of Senior Unsecured Notes due
2018 by STG.  The Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating remains
unchanged at SGL-2.  The rating outlook is now stable.


SPRINT NEXTEL: To Acquire 100% of Clearwire for $2.97 Apiece
------------------------------------------------------------
Sprint has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire the
approximately 50% stake in Clearwire it does not currently own for
$2.97 per share, equating to a total payment to Clearwire
shareholders, other than Sprint, of $2.2 billion.  This
transaction results in a total Clearwire enterprise value of
approximately $10 billion, including net debt and spectrum lease
obligations of $5.5 billion.

The transaction consideration represents a 128% premium to
Clearwire's closing share price the day before the Sprint-SoftBank
discussions were first confirmed in the marketplace on October 11,
with Clearwire speculated to be a part of that transaction; and, a
40% premium to the closing price the day before receipt of
Sprint's initial $2.60 per share non-binding indication of
interest on November 21.

Clearwire's spectrum, when combined with Sprint's, will provide
Sprint with an enhanced spectrum portfolio that will strengthen
its position and increase competitiveness in the U.S. wireless
industry.  Sprint's Network Vision architecture should allow for
better strategic alignment and the full utilization and
integration of Clearwire's complementary 2.5 GHz spectrum assets,
while achieving operational efficiencies and improved service for
customers as the spectrum and network is migrated to LTE
standards.

Sprint CEO Dan Hesse said, "Today's transaction marks yet another
significant step in Sprint's improved competitive position and
ability to offer customers better products, more choices and
better services.  Sprint is uniquely positioned to maximize the
value of Clearwire's spectrum and efficiently deploy it to
increase Sprint's network capacity.  We believe this transaction,
particularly when leveraged with our SoftBank relationship, is
further validation of our strategy and allows Sprint to control
its network destiny."

The transaction was unanimously approved by Clearwire's board of
directors upon the unanimous recommendation of a special committee
of the Clearwire board consisting of disinterested directors not
appointed by Sprint.  In addition, Clearwire has received
commitments from Comcast Corp., Intel Corp and Bright House
Networks LLC, who collectively own approximately 13% of
Clearwire's voting shares, to vote their shares in support of the
transaction.  SoftBank has provided its consent to the
transaction, as required under the terms of its recently announced
merger agreement with Sprint.

Clearwire CEO and President Erik Prusch said, "Our board of
directors has been reviewing available strategic alternatives over
the course of the last two years.  In evaluating available
alternatives, a special committee conducted a careful and rigorous
process, and based on the committee's recommendation, our board
unanimously determined that this transaction, which delivers
certain and attractive value for our shareholders, is the best
path forward."

In connection with the transaction, Clearwire and Sprint have
entered into agreements that provide up to $800 million of
additional financing for Clearwire in the form of exchangeable
notes, which will be exchangeable under certain conditions for
Clearwire common stock at $1.50 per share, subject to adjustment
under certain conditions.  Under the financing agreements, Sprint
has agreed to purchase $80 million of exchangeable notes per month
for up to ten months beginning in January, 2013, with some of the
monthly purchases subject to certain funding conditions, including
conditions relating to the approval of the proposed merger by
Clearwire's shareholders and a network build out plan.

The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions,
including regulatory approvals and the approval of Clearwire's
stockholders, including the approval of a majority of Clearwire
stockholders not affiliated with Sprint or SoftBank.  The closing
of the transaction is also contingent on the consummation of
Sprint's previously announced transaction with SoftBank.  The
Clearwire and SoftBank transactions are expected to close mid-
2013.

Citigroup Global Markets Inc. acted as financial advisor to Sprint
and Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP and King & Spalding
LLP acted as counsel to Sprint.  The Raine Group acted as
financial advisor to SoftBank Corp. and Morrison Foerster LLP
acted as counsel to SoftBank.  Evercore Partners acted as
financial advisor and Kirkland & Ellis LLP acted as counsel to
Clearwire. Centerview Partners acted as financial advisor and
Simpson Thacher & Bartlett LLP and Richards, Layton & Finger,
P.A., acted as counsel to Clearwire's special committee.
Blackstone Advisory Partners L.P. advised Clearwire on
restructuring matters. Credit Suisse acted as financial advisor
and Gibson Dunn & Crutcher LLP acted as counsel to Intel.

Services said its ratings on Overland Park, Kan.-based wireless
carrier Sprint Nextel Corp., including the 'B+' corporate credit
rating, remain on CreditWatch.  "The CreditWatch update follows
the announcement that Sprint Nextel has agreed to sell a majority
stake to Softbank," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Allyn
Arden.

In the Oct. 17, 2012, edition of the TCR, Moody's Investors
Service has placed all the ratings of Sprint Nextel, including its
B1 Corporate Family Rating, on review for upgrade following the
announcement that the Company has entered into a series of
definitive agreements with SOFTBANK CORP.

As reported by the TCR on Aug. 8, 2012, Fitch Ratings affirms,
among other things, the Issuer default rating (IDR) of Sprint
Nextel and its subsidiaries at 'B+'.  The ratings for Sprint
reflect the ongoing execution risk both operationally and
financially regarding several key initiatives that the company
expects will improve cash generation, network performance and
longer-term profitability.

obtain certain of the business information necessary to complete
the preparation of the Company's Form 10-Q in time for filing.  As
a result of this delay the Company was unable to file its
quarterly report on Form 10-Q within the prescribed time period
without unreasonable effort or expense.  The Company expects to
file within the extension period.

                     About Strategic American

SUN RIVER: Delays Form 10-Q for Oct. 31 Quarter
-----------------------------------------------
Sun River Energy, Inc., notified the U.S. Securities and Exchange
Commission that its financial statements for the period ended
Oct. 31, 2012, are not yet completed and cannot be completed by
the required filing date without unreasonable cost and effort.

                          About Sun River

Dallas, Tex.-based Sun River Energy, Inc., is an exploration and
production company focused on oil and natural gas.  Sun River has
mineral interests in two major geological areas.  Each area has a
distinct development plan, and each area brings a different value
matrix to the Company.  The Company has mineral interests in the
Raton Basin located in Colfax County, New Mexico, and in several
counties in the highly prolific East Texas Basin.

In the auditors' report accompanying the consolidated financial
statements for the year ended April 30, 2012,
LightfootGuestMoore&Co, P.C., in Dallas, Tex., expressed
substantial doubt about Sun River's ability to continue as a going
concern.  The independent auditors noted that the Company has an
accumulated earnings deficit of $41,027,526.

The Company reported a net loss of $24.0 million on $293,000 of
revenues for the year ended April 30, 2012, compared with a net
loss of $7.4 million on $98,000 of revenues for the year ended
April 30, 2011.

                    Going Concern Considerations

The Company has negative working capital of $13,793,000 at
July 31, 2012.  Approximately $10,339,000 of the negative working
capital position was comprised of amounts owed to significant
stockholders, including Officers of the Company.  The Company is
attempting to raise capital to resolve the working capital
requirements and develop the oil and gas assets.  The Company has
multiple options available to meet the current financial
obligations when due:

   * The Company is attempting to settlement of its $4,000,000
     note payable - related party obligation with assignment of
     certain mineral rights that the Company was not anticipating
     to develop; and/or

   * Sun River has raised capital in a Preferred Stock offering,
     and the Company is currently attempting to raise additional
     equity through the sale of additional common stock and will
     utilize any proceeds to improve their working capital; and/or

   * The Company may sell a portion of its mineral rights to
     improve its working capital, in addition to other selected
     current liabilities of the Company which may be due.

However, there can be no assurance that the Company will be able
to execute any or all of the contemplated transactions, which
raises substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue
as a going concern.


TELECONNECT INC: Ralph Kroner Appointed to Board of Directors
-------------------------------------------------------------
Mr. Ralph Kroner was appointed as a non-executive (supervisory)
director of Teleconnect Inc. to fill a remaining vacancy, and he
will serve until the next annual meeting of the shareholders or
until his successor is duly elected and qualified.

Ralph Kroner (62), of Dutch nationality, is well known for his
expertise and experience in corporate governance, (international)
litigation and space law (former member of the European center for
Space law in Paris), and has served as non-executive director on a
number of boards of commercial business.

After a long service record at Simmons & Simmons and its legal
predecessors, Ralph Kroner was appointed Of Counsel at the
international law firm Eversheds Faasen in Rotterdam on Sept. 15,
2010.  He is chairman of the Rotterdam Eye Hospital.

Mr. Kroner is considered to be a great source of knowledge for the
Company and his experience will be of great value to help position
Teleconnect's age validation business both in The Netherlands and
internationally.

                      About Teleconnect Inc.

Based in Breda, in The Netherlands, Teleconnect Inc. (OTC BB:
TLCO) Teleconnect Inc. (initially named Technology Systems
International Inc.) was incorporated under the laws of the State
of Florida on November 23, 1998.

Serving as a telecommunications service provider in Spain for
almost 9 years, the Company never fully reached expectations and
decided late in 2008 to change its course of business.  In
November 2009, 90% of the Company's telecommunication business was
sold to a Spanish group of investors, and on October 15, 2010, the
Company completed the acquisition of Hollandsche Exploitatie
Maatschappij BV (HEM), a Dutch entity established in 2007.  HEM's
core business involves the age validation of consumers when
purchasing products which cannot be sold to minors, such as
alcohol or tobacco.  The Company regards this age validation
business as its new strategic direction.  The Dutch companies
acquired in 2007 (Giga Matrix, The Netherlands, 49% and Photowizz,
The Netherlands, 100%) are considered to function complementary to
this new service offering.

Through the purchase of HEM and its ownership in Photowizz and
Giga Matrix the Company now controls all four pillars under its
business model: the manufacturing and leasing of electronic age
validation equipment, the performance of age validation
transactions remotely, the performance of market surveys and the
broadcasting of in-store commercial messages using the age
validation equipment in between age checks.

Coulter & Justus, P.C., in Knoxville, Tenn., expressed substantial
doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern
following the fiscal 2011 financial results.  The independent
auditors noted that the Company has suffered recurring losses from
operations and has a net capital deficiency in addition to a
working capital deficiency.

The Company reported a net loss of $3.26 million on $112,722 of
sales for the fiscal year ended Sept. 30, 2011, compared with net
income of $1.97 million on $254,446 of sales during the prior
year.

The Company's balance sheet at March 31, 2012, showed
$7.21 million in total assets, $11.08 million in total
liabilities, all current, and a $3.87 million total stockholders'
deficit.

TITAN PHARMACEUTICALS: Signs Exclusive License Pact With Braeburn
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Titan Pharmaceuticals, Inc., signed a license agreement with
Braeburn Pharmaceuticals Sprl, wholly owned by Apple Tree Partners
IV, L.P., a partnership affiliated with Apple Tree Partners.  The
license grants Braeburn exclusive commercialization rights in the
United States and Canada to the investigational product
Probuphine, a novel, subdermal implant and the first long-acting
product designed to deliver six months of the drug buprenorphine
hydrochloride following a single treatment.  On Oct. 29, 2012,
Titan announced the submission of a New Drug Application (NDA) to
the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for Probuphine for the
maintenance treatment of opioid dependence in adult patients.

Titan has received a non-refundable $15.75 million up-front
payment and will receive up to $50 million upon the approval of
Probuphine by the FDA for the treatment of opioid dependence.
Additionally, Titan will be eligible to receive up to $130 million
upon achievement of sales milestones and up to $35 million in
regulatory milestones for additional contemplated indications,
including chronic pain.  Titan will receive tiered, double digit
percentage royalties on net sales of Probuphine within a range
that is customary for products at this stage.  In addition to the
potential milestone payments, Apple Tree Partners IV has allocated
in excess of $75 million to launch, commercialize and continue the
development of Probuphine.

Apple Tree Partners, founded in 1999, creates life sciences
companies.  Through two predecessor partnerships, Apple Tree
founded and built Aileron Therapeutics, Gloucester Pharmaceuticals
(acquired by Celgene), HeartWare International and Tokai
Pharmaceuticals.  The firm intends to use the entirety of its
recently closed partnership, Apple Tree Partners IV, to build
Apple Tree Consolidated Sprl, a holding company that will create
and own complementary life sciences businesses (pharmaceuticals,
medical devices, and technology-enabled healthcare services).
Braeburn Pharmaceuticals will become a division of Apple Tree
Consolidated.

Braeburn Pharmaceuticals is led by a team that includes Rose
Crane, former Company Group Chair OTC, Specialty and Nutritionals
at Johnson & Johnson, and President, Primary Care at Bristol Myers
Squibb, and Garry Neil, M.D., former Group President
Pharmaceutical R&D at Johnson & Johnson.

"We believe this agreement with Braeburn Pharmaceuticals offers a
tremendous opportunity to accelerate the commercialization of
Probuphine and provides Titan with the financial resources to
further advance our technology and pipeline," said Sunil Bhonsle,
president of Titan.  "While a broad range of pharmaceutical
companies expressed interest in Probuphine, we found that the
innovative model of the new company established by Apple Tree not
only provides us with a value-driven transaction for Titan
shareholders, but also brings to the process a seasoned team of
industry veterans with proven track records of launching and
commercializing important therapies, including controlled
substances.  The North American Probuphine franchise will be
launched and developed by a top notch commercialization team,
maximizing the potential for its rapid acceptance in the medical
and patient community and a successful commercial launch for both
companies."

"The Board of Titan is extremely pleased with this strategic
partnering outcome and the path forward for Probuphine," said Marc
Rubin, M.D., executive chairman of Titan Pharmaceuticals.  "It is
our ultimate goal to rapidly and efficiently advance Probuphine to
the market and the patients and clinicians who can benefit from
safe and effective treatments for opioid addiction.  Braeburn
Pharmaceuticals has been formed with that same goal and we look
forward to working with their team to achieve it."

Under the terms of the agreement, Titan will remain responsible
for any expenses associated with the support of the current NDA
review process.  Upon completion of the FDA review process,
Braeburn Pharmaceuticals will assume all responsibility for
commercialization and further clinical development of Probuphine
in the U.S. and Canada.  The Titan team is already interacting
routinely with the Braeburn team and will continue to assist
through product launch as needed.  Titan and Braeburn
Pharmaceuticals will also have a joint development committee to
oversee the overall strategic objectives and plans relating to the
development of Probuphine, including regulatory strategy with
respect to any Phase IV clinical trials, communications with
regulatory authorities and clinical programs for chronic pain and
any other potential indications.

"The leadership team of Braeburn Pharmaceuticals combines the
entrepreneurial success of Apple Tree Partners with a proven track
record in pharmaceutical development and commercialization," said
Ms. Crane, partner at Apple Tree Partners and head of
pharmaceutical commercialization at Apple Tree Consolidated.  "We
are excited by the Probuphine opportunity and look forward to
working with the Titan team to drive the successful commercial
launch following FDA approval."

"Probuphine is an exciting new product with the potential to
change the lives of patients suffering from opiate dependence,"
said Dr. Neil, partner at Apple Tree Partners and head of
pharmaceutical research and development at Apple Tree
Consolidated.

In the Nov. 25, 2011, edition of the TCR, Moody's Investors
Service upgraded the Corporate Family and Probability of Default
Ratings of Tops Holding Corporation ("Tops") to B3 from Caa1.
Tops Corporate Family Rating of B3 reflects the company's weak
credit metrics, its modest size relative to competitors, regional
concentration and aggressive financial policies.  The rating is
supported by its stable operating performance in a challenging
business and competitive environment, its good regional market
presence and its good liquidity.

As reported by the TCR on April 30, 2012, Standard & Poor's
Ratings Services raised its ratings on Buffalo, N.Y.-based Tops
Holdings Corp., including the corporate credit rating to 'B+' from
'B'.

"The upgrade primarily reflects our revised view of the company's
financial risk profile as 'aggressive' from 'highly leveraged,'"
said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Charles Pinson-Rose.

ended Dec. 31, 2011, and, as of that date, has an accumulated
deficit of $189,000,000 and the Company's total liabilities
exceeded total assets by $55,138,000.

                        Bankruptcy Warning

Under the Company's amended and restated March 2010 financing
agreement with Victory Park Management, LLC, so long as the
Company's outstanding note balance is at least $5,000,000, the
Company must maintain a minimum cash balance equal to at least
$2,500,000 and its cash flow must be at least $2,000,000 in any
fiscal quarter or $7,000,000 in any three consecutive quarters.

"Without additional financing, we will not be able to maintain a
minimum cash balance of $2,500,000, or maintain an adequate cash
flow, in order to avoid default in periods subsequent to
September 30, 2012," the Company said in its quarterly report for
the period ended June 30, 2012.  "As a result, we will be in
default under the financing agreement, which would result in the
full amount of our debt owed to Victory Park becoming immediately
due and payable.  Even if we are able to raise cash and maintain a
minimum cash balance of at least $2,500,000 through the March 2013
maturity date, there is no assurance that the notes will be
converted into common stock, in which case, we may not have
sufficient cash from operations or from new financings to repay
the Victory Park debt when it comes due.  There can be no
assurance that new financings will be available on acceptable
terms, if at all.  In the event that we default, Victory Park
could retain control of the Company and will have the ability to
force us into involuntary bankruptcy and liquidate our assets."


USEC INC: Obtains Additional $45.7-Mil. Funding from Government
---------------------------------------------------------------
USEC Inc. and its subsidiary American Centrifuge Demonstration,
LLC, entered into Amendment No. 001 to the Cooperative Agreement
with the U.S. Department of Energy.  The Amendment amends the
Cooperative Agreement dated as of June 12, 2012, between DOE, USEC
and ACD to provide for additional government obligated funds of
$45,720,000 through Feb. 23, 2013.  This funding was made
available pursuant to the six-month continuing appropriations
measure passed by Congress and signed by the President on
Sept. 28, 2012, that provided funding for domestic uranium
enrichment research, development and demonstration at an annual
rate for operations of $100 million.  The Amendment also amends
the Cooperative Agreement to incorporate the detailed estimate of
cost and schedule submitted by USEC and ACD to DOE on Sept. 21,
2012, and to specifically include the milestone dates agreed to
between USEC and DOE for the RD&D program technical milestones, as
previously described in the Company's quarterly report on Form 10-
Q for the quarter ended Sept. 30, 2012.

The Cooperative Agreement provides funding for a cost-share RD&D
program for the American Centrifuge project to enhance the
technical and financial readiness of the centrifuge technology for
commercialization.  The Cooperative Agreement provides for 80% DOE
and 20% USEC cost sharing for work performed during the period
June 1, 2012, through Dec. 31, 2013, with a total estimated cost
of $350 million.  DOE's total contribution would be up to $280
million and USEC's contribution would be up to $70 million.  DOE's
contribution is incrementally funded.  The Cooperative Agreement
provided initial DOE funding of $87.7 million and the Amendment
increases the obligated DOE funding to $133.4 million.  USEC will
provide cost sharing equal to 20% of the allowable costs of $166.7
million of the RD&D program, or $33.3 million through Feb. 23,
2013.  USEC's 20% contribution will include investments made by
USEC commencing June 1, 2012.

DOE's remaining cost share under the RD&D program of $146.6
million is conditioned upon the availability of appropriations or
other sources of consideration and therefore there is no assurance
that this additional funding will be made available.

Headquartered in Bethesda, Maryland, USEC Inc. (NYSE: USU) --

The Company reported a net loss of $540.70 million in 2011,
compared with net income of $7.50 million in 2010.

The Company's balance sheet at Sept. 30, 2012, showed
$3.76 billion in total assets, $3.11 billion in total liabilities,
and $652.2 million in stockholders' equity.

                        Bankruptcy Warning

"A delisting of our common stock by the NYSE and the failure of
our common stock to be listed on another national exchange could
have significant adverse consequences.  A delisting would likely
have a negative effect on the price of our common stock and would
impair shareholders' ability to sell or purchase our common stock.
As of September 30, 2012, we had $530 million of convertible notes
outstanding.  A "fundamental change" is triggered under the terms
of our convertible notes if our shares of common stock are not
listed for trading on any of the NYSE, the American Stock
Exchange, the NASDAQ Global Market or the NASDAQ Global Select
Market.  Our receipt of a NYSE continued listing standards
notification ... did not trigger a fundamental change.  If a
fundamental change occurs under the convertible notes, the holders
of the notes can require us to repurchase the notes in full for
cash.  We do not have adequate cash to repurchase the notes.  In
addition, the occurrence of a fundamental change under the
convertible notes that permits the holders of the convertible
notes to require a repurchase for cash is an event of default
under our credit facility.  Accordingly, our inability to maintain
the continued listing of our common stock on the NYSE or another
national exchange would have a material adverse effect on our
liquidity and financial condition and would likely require us to
file for bankruptcy protection," according to the Company's
quarterly report for the period ended Sept. 30, 2012.

USEC Inc. carries 'Caa1' corporate and probability of default
ratings, with "developing" outlook, from Moody's.

As reported by the TCR on Aug. 17, 2012, Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services lowered its ratings on Bethesda, Md.-based USEC Inc.,
including the corporate credit rating to 'CCC' from 'CCC+'.

"The downgrade reflects our assessment of USEC's long-term
viability after the company publicly stated that it will be
difficult to continue enrichment operations at the Paducah Gaseous
Diffusion Plant after a one-year multiparty agreement to extend
operations expires in May 2013," said Standard & Poor's credit
analyst Maurice S. Austin.


USG CORP: Faces Class Action Lawsuit in Illinois
------------------------------------------------
USG Corporation, its subsidiary United States Gypsum Company and
seven other wallboard manufacturers were named as defendants in a
purported class action complaint filed in the United States
District Court for the Northern District of Illinois by Sierra
Drywall Systems, Inc., on behalf of itself and others similarly
situated.  The complaint alleges, among other things, that the
defendants unlawfully conspired to fix the price for gypsum
wallboard sold in the United States through price increases for
the years 2012 and 2013 and the elimination of job quotes.

USG believes that the suit is without merit.  USG denies that it
participated in any alleged conspiracy or has engaged in unlawful
conduct, and believes that its pricing decisions were, and
continue to be, made and implemented in full compliance with the
law.  USG intends to vigorously defend its actions in the court
proceeding.

                       About USG Corporation

Based in Chicago, Ill., USG Corporation -- http://www.usg.com/--
through its subsidiaries, manufactures and distributes building
materials producing a wide range of products for use in new
residential, new nonresidential and repair and remodel
construction, as well as products used in certain industrial
processes.

The company filed for Chapter 11 protection on June 25, 2001
(Bankr. Del. Case No. 01-02094).  When the Debtors filed for
protection from their creditors, they disclosed $3.252 billion in
assets and $2.739 billion in liabilities.  The Debtors emerged
from bankruptcy protection on June 20, 2006.

The Company reported a net loss of $390 million in 2011 and a net
loss of $405 million in 2010.

The Company's balance sheet at Sept. 30, 2012, showed $3.66
billion in total assets, $3.54 billion in total liabilities and
$112 million in total stockholders' equity including
noncontrolling interest.

                            *     *     *

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. 11, 2012, edition of the TCR, Fitch Ratings has
affirmed USG Corporation's (NYSE: USG) ratings, including the
company's Issuer Default Rating (IDR) at 'B-'.  The
Rating Outlook has been revised to Stable from Negative.

The ratings for USG reflect the company's leading market position
in all of its businesses, strong brand recognition, its large
manufacturing network and sizeable gypsum reserves.  Risks include
the cyclicality of the company's end-markets, excess capacity
currently in place in the U.S. wallboard industry, volatility of
wallboard pricing and shipments and the company's high leverage.

As reported by the TCR on Dec. 5, 2012, Moody's Investors Service
affirmed USG Corporation's Caa1 Corporate Family Rating and Caa1
Probability of Default Rating.  USG's Caa1 Corporate Family Rating
reflects its high debt leverage characteristics, despite Moody's
expectation of improving operating performance.


VENTANA 20/20: Plan to be Funded by Future Operations
-----------------------------------------------------
Ventana 20/20 LP has filed a disclosure statement in support of
its plan of reorganization dated Nov. 1, 2012.

The goal of the Plan is to continue the Debtor's operation as a
business entity, including the marketing of properties, which will
allow the Debtor to repay creditors.  The secured debt needs to be
reasonably restructured so payment obligations do not outstrip the
income from the sale and rental of the project.

The Plan will be funded by future operations of the Debtor's
business, including the rental, sale, re-financing, joint
venturing, re-capitalization, and/or development of properties
owned by the Debtor.  The Plan also provides estimated time
periods during which the property will generate rental income and
Net Sales Proceeds, so as to pay creditors under the Plan.  In
light of market turbulence, making projections as to disposition
or development dates is difficult, however, based upon the
expertise and experience of the Debtor and its principals, the
projections are as accurate an estimate as can be made.  With a
reasonable restructure of the secured indebtedness, the Debtor
will be able to repay all creditors, as set forth in this Plan.

The existing management for the Debtor will remain in place.  John
P. Murphy, the existing Managing Member of Ventana 20/20 GP, LLC,
which is the General Partner of Ventana 20/20 LP, will continue in
place, bringing his extensive and successful experience to the
reorganized Debtor.

The Company's balance sheet at Oct. 31, 2012, showed $21.47
million in total assets, $14.69 million in total liabilities and
$6.78 million in total equity.

Andrew Hidalgo, CEO of WPCS, commented, "We are pleased to report
consecutive quarters of EBITDA profitability from our operation
centers.  We have worked through a difficult prior fiscal year but
the recent results show that we are turning around our operating
performance and improving the organization.  We have a healthier
balance sheet, positive operating results and now we have obtained
financing to support our working capital needs and growth
prospects.  We have made great progress and believe we can now
deliver increased shareholder value.  The management team is
reaffirming that we remain on target to achieve revenue of $60
million and EBITDA of $1 million for this fiscal year ending April
30, 2013."

"At October 31, 2012, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of
$921,206 and working capital of $1,265,636, which consisted of
current assets of $15,897,614 and current liabilities of
$14,631,978, and on December 4, 2012, repaid the existing loan
with Sovereign.  However, the Company's outstanding obligations
under the Zurich Agreement and Indemnity Agreement raise
substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a
going concern."

* MF Global Again Beats Out Lehman in Claim Trading
---------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that MF Global Inc. for a third month beat out Lehman
Brothers Holdings Inc. by having the largest number of traded
claims.

The report relates that in November there were 370 trades of MF
Global claims reported to U.S. bankruptcy courts, compared with
285 for the Lehman holding company and its brokerage subsidiary,
according to data compiled from court records by SecondMarket Inc.
In face amount of claims, Lehman remained the leader with almost
$4.5 billion in trades, compared with MF Global's $354.5 million.
The MF Global trades represented 8% of Lehman's.  The Lehman
trades in amount represented 90% of the month's total exceeding
$5 billion in 904 trades, SecondMarket said.

Third place again was occupied by AMR Corp., the parent of
American Airlines Inc., with $140.7 million in 57 trades.

Since Lehman went bankrupt four years ago, more than $90 billion
in face amount of Lehman claims were traded, SecondMarket
previously said. Lehman filed for Chapter 11 protection in
September 2008 and confirmed a reorganization plan in December
2011.  The Lehman plan was implemented in March, with two
distributions since then.


* Sale of Junk Debt Increased in 2012
-------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reported Dec. 21 that bankruptcy professionals will have another
tough year in 2013 thanks to the generosity of bond buyers willing
to purchase debt even from financially weak companies.

So far this year, $257 billion in junk debt has been sold, a 7.5%
increase compared with the recent high of $239 billion in 2010,
Moody's Investors Service said in a report.

Bond sales allowed junk-rated companies this year to eliminate
about 70% of debt that otherwise would have matured in 2013.  As
it now stands, only about $20 billion in junk debt comes due next
year, Moody's said.

Bankruptcy professionals' best hope for a return to full
employment is congressional deadlock leading to budget cuts and
tax increases kicking in automatically in January.  Moody's
predicts that falling off the so-called cliff will depress the
economy by 3.4%, "resulting in a 0.3% contraction and a
recession."

Absent a bailout from congressional inaction precipitating a
recession, new issuances of junk debt will continue depressing
next year's default rate. Moody's predicts that the 3.1% junk
default rate in November will further decline to 2.5% by June
before climbing slightly to 2.9% in November 2013.

Liquidity pressures on junk-rated companies also remain low and
continue trending down.  Moody's liquidity-stress index,
representing the percentage of junk-rated companies with the
weakest liquidity, was 3.7% in December after declining every
quarter this year.  One year ago, it was 4.5%.  The long-term
average for the stress index is 7.5%.  The peak was 20.9% in March
2009.


* BOOK REVIEW: Ralph H. Kilmann's Beyond the Quick Fix
------------------------------------------------------
Author: Ralph H. Kilmann
Publisher: Beard Books
Hardcover: 320 pages
Listprice: $34.95
Review by Henry Berry

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

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

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

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

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

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

Monday's edition of the TCR delivers a list of indicative prices
for bond issues that reportedly trade well below par.  Prices are
obtained by TCR editors from a variety of outside sources during
the prior week we think are reliable.  Those sources may not,
however, be complete or accurate.  The Monday Bond Pricing table
is compiled on the Friday prior to publication.  Prices reported
are not intended to reflect actual trades.  Prices for actual
trades are probably different.  Our objective is to share
information, not make markets in publicly traded securities.
Nothing in the TCR constitutes an offer or solicitation to buy or
sell any security of any kind.  It is likely that some entity
affiliated with a TCR editor holds some position in the issuers"
public debt and equity securities about which we report.

Each Tuesday edition of the TCR contains a list of companies with
insolvent balance sheets whose shares trade higher than $3 per
share in public markets.  At first glance, this list may look like
the definitive compilation of stocks that are ideal to sell short.
Don't be fooled.  Assets, for example, reported at historical cost
net of depreciation may understate the true value of a firm's
assets.  A company may establish reserves on its balance sheet for
liabilities that may never materialize.  The prices at which
equity securities trade in public market are determined by more
than a balance sheet solvency test.

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

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

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

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

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