4KIDS ENTERTAINMENT: Has $10.48 Million Cash at Nov. 30
-------------------------------------------------------
4Kids Entertainment Licensing, Inc., on Dec. 13, 2012, filed its
monthly operating report for the month ended Nov. 30, 2012.

At the beginning of the month, the Company had $10.7 million in
cash.  The Company had total cash receipts of $561,908 and total
cash disbursements of $782,684.  As a result, at the end of
November, 4Kids Entertainment had total cash of $10.48 million.

                     About 4Kids Entertainment

New York-based 4Kids Entertainment, Inc., dba 4Kids, is an
entertainment and media company specializing in the youth oriented
market, with operations in these business segments: (i) licensing,
(ii) advertising and media broadcast, and (iii) television and
film production/distribution.  The parent entity, 4Kids
Entertainment, was organized as a New York corporation in 1970.

4Kids filed for bankruptcy protection under Chapter 11 of the
Bankruptcy Code to protect its most valuable asset -- its rights
under an exclusive license relating to the popular Yu-Gi-Oh!
series of animated television programs -- from efforts by the
licensor, a consortium of Japanese companies, to terminate
the license and force 4Kids out of business.

4Kids and affiliates filed Chapter 11 petitions (Bankr. S.D.N.Y.
Lead Case No. 11-11607) on April 6, 2011.  Kaye Scholer LLP is the
Debtors' restructuring counsel.  Epiq Bankruptcy Solutions, LLC,
is the Debtors' claims and notice agent.  BDO Capital Advisors,
LLC, is the financial advisor and investment banker.  EisnerAmper
LLP fka Eisner LLP serves as auditor and tax advisor.  4Kids
Entertainment disclosed $78,397,971 in assets and $86,515,395 in
liabilities as of the Chapter 11 filing.

Hahn & Hessen LLP serves as counsel to the Official Committee of
Unsecured Creditors.  Epiq Bankruptcy Solutions LLC serves as its
information agent for the Committee.

The Consortium consists of TV Tokyo Corporation, which owns and
operates a television station in Japan; ASATSU-DK Inc., a Japanese
advertising company; and Nihon Ad Systems, ADK's wholly owned
subsidiary.  The Consortium is represented by Kyle C. Bisceglie,
Esq., Michael S. Fox, Esq., Ellen V. Holloman, Esq., and Mason
Barney, Esq., at Olshan Grundman Frome Rosenzweig & Wolosky LLP,
in New York.

In January 2012, the bankruptcy judge ruled in favor of 4Kids,
deciding that the Yu-Gi-Oh! property license agreement between the
Debtor and the licensor was not effectively terminated prior to
the bankruptcy filing.  Following the ruling, 4Kids entered into a
settlement where it would receive $8 million to end the dispute
over its valuable Yu-Gi-Oh! Property.

As reported by the TCR on Dec. 17, 2012, U.S. Bankruptcy
Judge Shelley C. Chapman confirmed the Debtor's Chapter 11 plan.

                       About A123 Systems

Based in Waltham, Massachusetts, A123 Systems Inc. designs,
develops, manufactures and sells advanced rechargeable lithium-ion
batteries and battery systems and provides research and
development services to government agencies and commercial
customers.

A123 is the recipient of a $249 million federal grant from the
Obama administration.  Pre-bankruptcy, A123 had an agreement to
sell an 80% stake to Chinese auto-parts maker Wanxiang Group Corp.
U.S. lawmakers opposed the deal over concerns on the transfer of
American taxpayer dollars and technology to China.

A123 didn't make a $2.7 million payment due Oct. 15 on $143.75
million in 3.75% convertible subordinated notes due 2016.

A123 and U.S. affiliates, A123 Securities Corporation and Grid
Storage Holdings LLC, sought Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection
(Bankr. D. Del. Case Nos. 12-12859 to 12-12861) on Oct. 16, 2012.

A123 disclosed assets of $459.8 million and liabilities totaling
$376 million.  Debt includes $143.8 million on 3.75% convertible
subordinated notes.  Other liabilities include $22.5 million on a
bridge loan owing to Wanziang.  About $33 million is owed to trade
suppliers.

The Hon. Kevin J. Carey presides over the case.  Lawyers at
Richards, Layton & Finger, P.A., and Latham & Watkins LLP serve as
the Debtors' counsel.  Lazard Freres & Co. LLC acts as the
Debtors' financial advisors, while Alvarez & Marsal serves as
restructuring advisors.  Logan & Company Inc. serves as the
Debtors' claims and noticing agent.  Wanxiang America Corporation
and Wanxiang Clean Energy USA Corp. are represented in the case by
lawyers at Young Conaway Stargatt & Taylor, LLP, and Sidley Austin
LLP.  JCI is represented in the case by Josh Feltman, Esq., at
Wachtell Lipton Rosen & Katz LLP.

An official committee of unsecured creditors has been appointed in
the case.  The Committee is represented by lawyers at Brown
Rudnick LLP and Saul Ewing LLP.

A123 sought bankruptcy protection with a deal to sell its auto-
business assets to Johnson Controls Inc.  The deal with JCI is
valued at $125 million, and subject to higher offers at a
bankruptcy auction.  At an auction early in December, JCI's bid
was topped by Wanxiang America's $256.6 million offer.

The Bankruptcy Court approved the sale on Dec. 11.  Wanxiang is
buying most of A123, except for its government business.  Navitas
Systems, a Chicago-area company spun off from Sun MicroSystems, is
buying A123's government business for $2.25 million.  The sale is
expected to close come Feb. 1.

JCI has filed an appeal from the sale approval.


AMERICAN SUZUKI: Lists $78.85 Million Net Loss in November
----------------------------------------------------------
American Suzuki Motor Corporation, on Dec. 28, 2012, filed its
first monthly operating report for the period ended Nov. 30, 2012.

The Company reported a net loss of $78.85 million on net sales of
$28.15 million for the period ended Nov. 30, 2012.

As of Nov. 30, 2012, the Company had total assets of $234.98
million, total liabilities of $398.14 million and total
stockholders' deficit of $163.16 million.

At the end of November, American Suzuki had total cash of $10.56
million.

                      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.

AmericanWest Bancorporation filed for Chapter 11 protection
(Bankr. E.D. Wash. Case No. 10-06097) on Oct. 28, 2010.  The

Christopher M. Alston, Esq., and Dillon E. Jackson, Esq., at
Foster Pepper Shefelman PLLC, in Seattle, Washington, serve as

Exchange Commission before the Petition Date, AmericanWest
Bancorporation reported consolidated assets -- including its bank
unit's -- of $1.536 billion and consolidated debts of

U.S. Bankruptcy Court.

American West filed a Chapter 11 plan hammered out with secured
lenders owed $177.5 million.  The lenders will take ownership and

The Debtor reported a net loss of $21.71 million on total income

                        About Arcapita Bank

Arcapita Bank B.S.C., also known as First Islamic Investment Bank
B.S.C., along with affiliates, filed for Chapter 11 protection
(Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Lead Case No. 12-11076) in Manhattan on March 19,
2012.  The Debtors said they do not have the liquidity necessary
to repay a US$1.1 billion syndicated unsecured facility when it
comes due on March 28, 2012.

Falcon Gas Storage Company, Inc., later filed a Chapter 11
petition (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 12-11790) on April 30, 2012.
Falcon Gas is an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of Arcapita that
previously owned the natural gas storage business NorTex Gas
Storage Company LLC.  In early 2010, Alinda Natural Gas Storage I,
L.P. (n/k/a Tide Natural Gas Storage I, L.P.), Alinda Natural Gas
Storage II, L.P. (n/k/a Tide Natural Gas Storage II, L.P.)
acquired the stock of NorTex from Falcon Gas for $515 million.
Arcapita guaranteed certain of Falcon Gas' obligations under the
NorTex Purchase Agreement.

The Debtors tapped Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP as bankruptcy
counsel, Linklaters LLP as corporate counsel, Towers & Hamlins LLP
as international counsel on Bahrain matters, Hatim S Zu'bi &
Partners as Bahrain counsel, KPMG LLP as accountants, Rothschild
Inc. and financial advisor, and GCG Inc. as notice and claims
agent.

Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy LLP represents the Official
Committee of Unsecured Creditors.  Houlihan Lokey Capital, Inc.,
serves as its financial advisor and investment banker.

Founded in 1996, Arcapita is a global manager of Shari'ah-
compliant alternative investments and operates as an investment
bank.  Arcapita is not a domestic bank licensed in the United
States.  Arcapita is headquartered in Bahrain and is regulated
under an Islamic wholesale banking license issued by the Central
Bank of Bahrain.  The Arcapita Group employs 268 people and has
offices in Atlanta, London, Hong Kong and Singapore in addition to
its Bahrain headquarters.  The Arcapita Group's principal
activities include investing on its own account and providing
investment opportunities to third-party investors in conformity
with Islamic Shari'ah rules and principles.

The Arcapita Group has roughly US$7 billion in assets under
management.  On a consolidated basis, the Arcapita Group owns
assets valued at roughly US$3.06 billion and has liabilities of
roughly US$2.55 billion.  The Debtors owe US$96.7 million under
two secured facilities made available by Standard Chartered Bank.

Arcapita explored out-of-court restructuring scenarios but was
unable to achieve 100% lender consent required to effectuate the
terms of an out-of-court restructuring.

Subsequent to the Chapter 11 filing, Arcapita Investment Holdings
Limited, a wholly owned Debtor subsidiary of Arcapita in the
Cayman Islands, issued a summons seeking ancillary relief from the
Grand Court of the Cayman Islands with a view to facilitating the
Chapter 11 cases.  AIHL sought the appointment of Zolfo Cooper as
provisional liquidator.

IX.  The region served by the Archdiocese consists of 4,758 square
miles in southeast Wisconsin which includes counties Dodge, Fond
du Lac, Kenosha, Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Racine, Sheboygan, Walworth,

by priests on minors.

The Archdiocese became at least the eighth Roman Catholic diocese
in the U.S. to file for bankruptcy to settle claims from current
and former parishioners who say they were sexually molested by
priests.

Daryl L. Diesing, Esq., at Whyte Hirschboeck Dudek S.C., in

The Archdiocese estimated assets and debts of $10 million to
$50 million in its Chapter 11 petition.

                       About Dewey & LeBoeuf

Dewey & LeBoeuf LLP sought Chapter 11 bankruptcy (Bankr. S.D.N.Y.
Case No. 12-12321) to complete the wind-down of its operations.
The firm had struggled with high debt and partner defections.
Dewey disclosed debt of $245 million and assets of $193 million in
its chapter 11 filing late evening on May 29, 2012.

Dewey & LeBoeuf LLP operated as a prestigious, New York City-
based, law firm that traced its roots to the 2007 merger of Dewey
Ballantine LLP -- originally founded in 1909 as Root, Clark & Bird
-- and LeBoeuf, Lamb, Green & MacCrae LLP -- originally founded in
1929.  In recent years, more than 1,400 lawyers worked at the firm
in numerous domestic and foreign offices.

At its peak, Dewey employed about 2,000 people with 1,300 lawyers
in 25 offices across the globe.  When it filed for bankruptcy,
only 150 employees were left to complete the wind-down of the
business.

Dewey's offices in Hong Kong and Beijing are being wound down.
The partners of the separate partnership in England are in process
of winding down the business in London and Paris, and
administration proceedings in England were commenced May 28.  All
lawyers in the Madrid and Brussels offices have departed.  Nearly
all of the lawyers and staff of the Frankfurt office have
departed, and the remaining personnel are preparing for the
closure.  The firm's office in Sao Paulo, Brazil, is being
prepared for closure and the liquidation of the firm's local
affiliate.  The partners of the firm in the Johannesburg office,
South Africa, are planning to wind down the practice.

The firm's ownership interest in its practice in Warsaw, Poland,
was sold to the firm of Greenberg Traurig PA on May 11 for
$6 million.  The Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp. took $2 million of
the proceeds as part of a settlement.

Judge Martin Glenn oversees the case.  Albert Togut, Esq., at
Togut, Segal & Segal LLP, represents the Debtor.  Epiq Bankruptcy
Solutions LLC serves as claims and notice agent.  The petition was
signed by Jonathan A. Mitchell, chief restructuring officer.

JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as Revolver Agent on behalf of the
lenders under the Revolver Agreement, hired Kramer Levin Naftalis
& Frankel LLP.  JPMorgan, as Collateral Agent for the Revolver
Lenders and the Noteholders, hired FTI Consulting and Gulf
Atlantic Capital, as financial advisors.  The Noteholders hired
Bingham McCutchen LLP as counsel.

The U.S. Trustee formed two committees -- one to represent
unsecured creditors and the second to represent former Dewey
partners.  The creditors committee hired Brown Rudnick LLP led by
Edward S. Weisfelner, Esq., as counsel.  The Former Partners hired
Tracy L. Klestadt, Esq., and Sean C. Southard, Esq., at Klestadt &
Winters, LLP, as counsel.

Dewey filed a Chapter 11 Plan of Liquidation and an accompanying
Disclosure Statement on Nov. 21, 2012.  It filed amended plan
documents on Dec. 31, in an attempt to address objections lodged
by various parties.  A second iteration was filed Jan. 7, 2013.

The plan is based on a proposed settlement between secured lenders
and Dewey's official unsecured creditors' committee.  It also
incorporates a settlement approved by the bankruptcy court in
October where 440 former partners will receive releases in return
for $71.5 million in contributions.

nationwide strike.  The Debtor failed to reach an agreement with
BCTGM on contract changes.  Hostess Brands said it intends to

LightSquared Inc. and 19 of its affiliates filed Chapter 11
bankruptcy petitions (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Lead Case No. 12-12080) on
May 14, 2012, as the Company seeks to resolve regulatory issues
that have prevented it from building its coast-to-coast integrated
satellite 4G wireless network.

LightSquared had invested more than $4 billion to deploy an
integrated satellite-terrestrial network.  In February 2012,
however, the U.S. Federal Communications Commission told
LightSquared the agency would revoke a license to build out the
network as it would interfere with global positioning systems used
by the military and various industries.  In March 2012, the
Company's partner, Sprint, canceled a master services agreement.
LightSquared's lenders deemed the termination of the Sprint
agreement would trigger cross-defaults under LightSquared's
prepetition credit agreements.

LightSquared and its prepetition lenders attempted to negotiate a
global restructuring that would provide LightSquared with
liquidity and runway necessary to resolve its issues with the FCC.
Despite working diligently and in good faith, however,
LightSquared and the lenders were not able to consummate a global
restructuring on terms acceptable to all interested parties.

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

liabilities delivered to nation's bankruptcy courts.  The list
