AGFEED INDUSTRIES: Ch. 11 Trustee After 'Massive Fraud,' U.S. Says
------------------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that executives of AgFeed Industries Inc., a hog producer
in the U.S. and China, should be ousted and replaced by a Chapter
11 trustee, according to the U.S. Trustee in Delaware.

According to the report, in September, the Justice Department's
bankruptcy watchdog asked the bankruptcy judge to appoint an
examiner in view of what she called a "massive fraud" in the
company's Chinese operations that went undetected for years.

In October, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Brendan Shannon declined for the
time being to order an investigation by an outsider, saying it
might interfere with the sale process then under way.  The company
and the official creditors' committee opposed having an examiner.

Upping the ante in papers filed Nov. 5 and this time seeking
appointment of a trustee, the U.S. Trustee said incumbent
management's "continuing failure to make any meaningful
disclosures" about fraud "evidences dishonesty or gross
mismanagement."

The government's papers say the company failed to file corrected
financial statements in the two years since the fraud was
disclosed publicly.

According to papers from the U.S. Trustee, managers of the unit in
China created multiple sets of accounting books while reporting
fictitious sales and receivables.

In October, three months after its bankruptcy filing in the U.S.,
the company completed the sale of the U.S. operations to three
buyers for $79.5 million, including $53.4 million cash.  An
auction is set for Nov. 20 to determine whether a $50.5 million
bid is the best offer for operations in China.  The sale-approval
hearing will take place Nov. 21.

Opposing appointment of an examiner in October, the creditors'
committee said the second sale "may" generate sufficient funds so
unsecured creditors are fully paid, "with excess proceeds for the
equity holders."

                      About AgFeed Industries

AgFeed Industries, Inc., has 21 farms and five feed mills in China
producing more than 250,000 hogs annually. In the U.S., the
business included 10 sow farms in three states and two feed mills
producing more than one million hogs a year. AgFeed's revenue in
2012 was $244 million.

AgFeed and its affiliates filed voluntary petitions under Chapter
11 of the Bankruptcy Code (Bankr. D. Del. Case No. 13-11761) on
July 15, 2013, with a deal to sell most of its subsidiaries to The
Maschhoffs, LLC, for cash proceeds of $79 million, absent higher
and better offers.  The Debtors estimated assets of at least $100
million and debts of at least $50 million.

Keith A. Maib signed the petition as chief restructuring officer.
Hon. Brendan Linehan Shannon presides over the case.  Donald J.
Bowman, Jr., and Robert S. Brady, Esq., at Young, Conaway,
Stargatt & Taylor, serve as the Debtors' counsel.   BDA Advisors
Inc. acts as the Debtors' financial advisor.  The Debtors' claims
and noticing agent is BMC Group, Inc.

The U.S. Trustee has appointed a five-member official committee of
unsecured creditors to the Chapter 11 cases.  The Creditors'
Committee tapped Lowenstein Sandler as lead bankruptcy counsel and
Greenberg Traurig, LLP, as co-counsel.  CohnReznick LLP serves as
the Creditors' Committee's financial advisor.

A three-member official committee of equity security holders was
also appointed to the Chapter 11 cases.  The Equity Committee
tapped Sugar Felsenthal Grais & Hammer LLP and Elliott Greenleaf
as co-counsel.


ALLIANT TECHSYSTEMS: S&P Lowers Subordinated Debt Rating to 'B+'
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its ratings on Alliant
Techsystems Inc.'s (ATK's) subordinated debt to 'B+' from 'BB' and
removed the ratings from CreditWatch, where S&P had placed them
with negative implications on Sept. 5, 2013.  At the same time,
S&P lowered the recovery ratings on these debt issues to '6' from
'4'.  These rating actions follow the company's closing and
financing of its acquisition of Bushnell Group Holdings Inc.
(Bushnell).  In addition, because ATK has completed the
refinancing of the old revolver and term loans, S&P withdrew its
ratings on these debt issues.

On Sept. 5, 2013, Standard & Poor's affirmed its long-term 'BB'
corporate credit rating on ATK and maintained the stable outlook
following the company's announcement that it intended to acquire
Bushnell, a manufacturer of sporting and recreational gear, for
about $1 billion.  The Bushnell transaction falls within the
parameters we established for ATK's debt capacity.  "Our base case
also assumes that ATK will adhere to its pattern of deleveraging
following acquisitions," said credit analyst Sol Samson.

ATK is using a mix of secured and unsecured debt to refinance its
extant secured debt with a new revolving credit facility
(increased to $700 million, from the original plan of
$600 million), a new term loan A, and a new term loan B.  In S&P's
view, the collateral value in a hypothetical default scenario for
the secured debt should suffice to repay at least 90% of the newly
enlarged amount.

However, there would be little or nothing to provide for recovery
for lower-priority debt.  (Previously, the enterprise value
greatly exceeded the amount of the secured debt.)  Accordingly,
S&P lowered the issue ratings on ATK's subordinated debt to 'B+'
from 'BB' and the recovery ratings on those debt issues to '6'
from '4'.  (Similarly, S&P previously rated a senior unsecured
note issue 'B+' with a recovery rating of '6', even though it is
senior to the subordinated debt issues.)

On Sept. 5, 2013, Standard & Poor's placed the 'BB' subordinated
debt issue ratings on CreditWatch with negative implications.
With the action, S&P lowered those ratings and removed them from
CreditWatch.


AMERICAN AIRLINES: Merger Antitrust Judge Limits Union Briefs
-------------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that unions representing workers at AMR Corp. and its
intended merger partner, US Airways Group Inc., will be able to
submit friend-of-the-court briefs for an antitrust trial -- within
limits.

According to the report, U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-
Kotelly in Washington is trying to prevent the unions and other
bystanders from submitting hundreds of pages of briefs all making
the same arguments in the lawsuit brought by the U.S. to block the
merger.

After she allowed five other unions to submit a brief by Nov. 15,
the US Airline Pilots Association, representing US Airways fliers,
asked to file a brief of its own, saying it had a different
perspective on the benefits to the public from merger of the
airlines.

This week, the judge allowed the US Airways pilots to file eight
pages, while telling them to exclude facts that won't be in
evidence at the antitrust trial set to start Nov. 25. If their
arguments are the same, the pilots should join in the brief from
the other unions, she said.

The judge is also allowing airports, the official AMR creditors'
committee and plaintiffs in a private antitrust suit to file
briefs, each not to exceed 25 pages. Judge Kollar-Kotelly said she
would ignore arguments based on facts not introduced at trial and
discouraged duplicative arguments.

American Airlines shares have risen steadily following a three-day
fall in August after the U.S. sued to bar the airlines from
merging under AMR's Chapter 11 plan. Since then, the stock has
more than tripled, closing on Nov. 6 at $9.22 in over-the-
counter trading.

A bankruptcy judge formally approved the plan last month.

AMR rose 25 percent on Nov. 4 on news that the airlines and the
government were in settlement talks.  Selling for about 40 cents
in October 2012, the stock rose to $1.30 before the merger was
announced in February.

                      About 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.

Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP serves as bankruptcy counsel to the
Debtors.  Paul Hastings LLP and Debevoise & Plimpton LLP Groom Law
Group, Chartered, are on board as special counsel.  Rothschild
Inc., is the financial advisor.  Garden City Group Inc. is the
claims and notice agent.

Jack Butler, Esq., John Lyons, Esq., Felecia Perlman, Esq., and
Jay Goffman, Esq., at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP
serve as counsel to the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors
in AMR's chapter 11 proceedings.  Togut, Segal & Segal LLP is the
co-counsel for conflicts and other matters; Moelis & Company LLC
is the investment banker, and Mesirow Financial Consulting, LLC,
is the financial advisor.

The Retiree Committee is represented by Jenner & Block LLP's
Catherine L. Steege, Esq., Charles B. Sklarsky, Esq., and Marc B.
Hankin, Esq.

AMR and US Airways Group, Inc., on Feb. 14, 2013, announced a
definitive merger agreement under which the companies will combine
to create a premier global carrier, which will have an implied
combined equity value of approximately $11 billion.

The bankruptcy judge on Sept. 12, 2013, confirmed AMR Corp.'s plan
to exit bankruptcy through a merger with US Airways.  By
distributing stock in the merged airlines, the plan is designed to
pay all creditors in full, with interest.

Judge Sean Lane confirmed the Plan despite the lawsuit filed by
the U.S. Department of Justice and several states' attorney
general complaining that the merger violates antitrust laws.  The
plan confirmation order means that if AMR and US Airways win the
Justice Department lawsuit or settle with the government, the
merger plan can go into effect.

The antitrust suit is U.S. v. US Airways Group Inc., 13-cv-1236,
U.S. District Court, District of Columbia (Washington).

AMERICAN AXLE: Posts $31.6 Million Net Income in Third Quarter
--------------------------------------------------------------
American Axle & Manufacturing Holdings, Inc., filed with the U.S.
Securities and Exchange Commission its quarterly report on Form
10-Q disclosing a net income of $31.6 million on $820.8 million of
net sales for the three months ended Sept. 30, 2013, as compared
with a net loss of $8.2 million on $702.9 million of net sales for
the same period during the prior year.

For the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2013, the Company reported net
income of $64.7 million on $2.37 billion of net sales as compared
with net income of $46.8 million on $2.19 billion of net sales for
the same period a year ago.

The Company's balance sheet at Sept. 30, 2013, showed
$3.11 billion in total assets, $3.16 billion in total liabilities
and a $46.8 million total stockholders' deficit.

"AAM's financial results in the third quarter of 2013 were
highlighted by solid sales growth, improved profit margin
performance and positive free cash flow," said David C. Dauch,
AAM's Chairman, president & chief executive officer.  "For the
remainder of 2013, we are focused on successfully launching AAM's
industry-first EcoTracTM Disconnecting All Wheel Drive system, as
well as continuing to deliver positive financial results by
executing our aligned business strategy, which is built upon the
foundational principles of quality, operational excellence and
technology leadership."

                        About American Axle

Headquartered in Detroit, Michigan, American Axle & Manufacturing
Holdings Inc. (NYSE: AXL) -- http://www.aam.com/-- manufactures,
engineers, designs and validates driveline and drivetrain systems
and related components and chassis modules for light trucks, sport
utility vehicles, passenger cars, crossover vehicles and
commercial vehicles.

                           *     *     *

In September 2012, Moody's Investors Service affirmed the 'B1'
Corporate Family Rating (CFR) and Probability of Default Rating
(PDR) of American Axle.

American Axle carries a 'BB-' corporate credit rating from
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services.  "The 'BB-' corporate credit
rating on American Axle reflects the company's 'weak' business
risk profile and 'aggressive' financial risk profile, which
incorporate substantial exposure to the highly cyclical light-
vehicle market," S&P said, as reported by the TCR on Sept. 6,
2012.

As reported by the TCR on Sept. 5, 2013, Fitch Ratings has
affirmed the 'B+' Issuer Default Ratings of American Axle &
Manufacturing Holdings, Inc. (AXL) and its American Axle &
Manufacturing, Inc. (AAM) subsidiary.  The ratings and Positive
Outlook for AXL and AAM are supported by Fitch's expectation that
the drivetrain and driveline supplier's credit profile will
strengthen over the intermediate term, despite some deterioration
over the past year.


ARC REALTY: Section 341(a) Meeting of Creditors Set on Dec. 19
--------------------------------------------------------------
A meeting of creditors in the bankruptcy case of Arc Realty
Ventures, LLC, will be held on Dec. 19, 2013, at 10:00 a.m. at
Room 129, Clarkson S. Fisher Courthouse.  Creditors have until
March 19, 2014, to submit their proofs of claim.

This is the first meeting of creditors required under Section
341(a) of the Bankruptcy Code in all bankruptcy cases.

All creditors are invited, but not required, to attend.  This
meeting of creditors offers the one opportunity in a bankruptcy
proceeding for creditors to question a responsible office of the
Debtor under oath about the company's financial affairs and
operations that would be of interest to the general body of
creditors.

Arc Realty Ventures, LLC, filed a bankruptcy petition (Bankr.
D.N.J. Case No. 13-33862) on Oct. 31, 2013.  The petition was
signed by Murty Azzarapu as manager.  The Debtor estimated assets
of at least $10 million and liabilities of at least $1 million.


AVON PRODUCTS: Fitch Lowers LT IDR to 'BB', on Watch Negative
-------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has downgraded Avon Products, Inc.'s long-term
ratings and placed the following on Rating Watch Negative:

-- Long-term Issuer Default Rating (IDR) to 'BB' from 'BB+';
-- Bank credit facility to 'BB' from 'BB+ ';
-- Bank Term Loan to 'BB' from 'BB+';
-- Senior unsecured notes to 'BB' from 'BB+'.

In addition, Fitch has affirmed Avon's and its subsidiary's short-
term (ST) ratings as follows:

Avon Products, Inc:

-- Short-Term IDR at 'B';
-- Commercial Paper at 'B';

Avon Capital Corporation (ACC):

-- Short-term IDR at 'B';
-- Commercial Paper at 'B'

Commercial paper issuances by ACC are fully guaranteed by Avon.

The short-term ratings have not been placed on Rating Watch.

KEY RATING DRIVERS

RATINGS DOWNGRADE ON INTENSIFIED BUSINESS MODEL RISKS

The downgrade of Avon's ratings is due to deteriorating operations
and intensifying business model risk as reflected in continued
double digit declines in revenue, volume and representative (rep)
counts in North America and Asia Pacific through the first three
quarters of 2013. Additionally, there are challenging market
conditions in the Latin American and European regions. The slow
growth macro environment has contributed to heightened
competition. Based on L'Oreal S.A (L'Oreal) estimates, worldwide
mass market channels are growing faster than the direct selling
channel in the first half of this year. Build-out of alternative
channels in emerging economies could have negative implications
for direct sellers.

The direct selling channel is growing but early indications are
that it is not as fast as other channels. Personal care companies
and retailers have invested heavily in emerging markets which had
been a stronghold for Avon. At the same time emerging markets
growth rates have slowed and Avon has had a number of executional
challenges to address. The challenges vary by country which
clearly adds complexity and therefore quick fixes are unlikely.

Avon commented that the Latin American region will continue to be
impacted by weaker economies and high levels of competition,
Russia is seeing high levels of price competition from retail,
recruitment fell apart in North America, and ongoing issues in
Asia Pacific will mean that results will remain soft in the near
term. The challenge to Avon is reflected in generally weaker
operating metrics such as overall volume and rep growth.
Visibility to sustained stability and overall growth is unclear.

Brazil is Avon's largest market generating approximately 20% of
revenues. Latin America accounted for more than half of Avon's
operating profit before global and other expenses in 2012. Given
shrinking North American and Asia Pacific markets, Latin America
and Brazil in particular, are increasingly important. Low single-
digit average rep count growth through the third quarter of 2013
by Natura and Avon in the Latin American region signals channel
maturation. In Avon's case, there may not be enough growth in the
Latin America and European regions to offset accelerating
declining performance in North America and Asia Pacific. By
contrast, L'Oreal and Grupo Boticario, which has a large retail
store base across Brazil, also appear to be taking share.

SLOW TURNAROUND, DECLINING CASH FLOWS

The turnaround in Avon's operations is clearly taking longer than
management or Fitch expected. In the interim, the company needs to
continue investing in restructuring efforts, product launches,
improved business processes and its representatives. These are
future draws on internally generated liquidity from operating cash
flow which has declined sequentially from $782 million in 2009 to
$445 million through the latest 12 months (LTM). A lengthy
turnaround increases the potential of further market share losses,
sales deleveraging and a heightened risk that adequate credit
protection measures that exist today, could weaken.

RATING WATCH NEGATIVE on FCPA

The Rating Watch Negative is predicated on the uncertainty
regarding the potential size of the monetary penalties related to
the company's violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act
(FCPA). In its 10-Q filing on Oct. 31, 2013, Avon wrote that in
September 2013, the staff of the Securities and Exchange
Commission (SEC) proposed terms of potential settlement that
included monetary penalties of a magnitude significantly greater
than the company's earlier offer of $12 million.

At Sept. 30, 2013 Avon had more than $1.8 billion in liquidity
with approximately $1 billion in revolver availability and $800
million of cash. As such, a significantly higher fine - as was
posed by a recent Wall Street Journal article in the $100 million
range - doesn't seem to warrant the more serious undertones in the
company's 10-Q, which suggests that not only would the company's
financial condition be affected, but its ongoing business would be
materially adversely impacted if it entered into settlements with
the SEC and U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) with a proposal
similar to the SEC's staff.

The company cannot comment publicly on the amounts of the
settlements given the nature of the investigation and the
governmental bodies involved. While the language could indicate an
abundance of caution, the terminology used heightens Fitch's
concerns that there could be financial impacts to the business
model or much larger amounts than previously contemplated. As a
result, Avon's ratings are placed on Watch Negative until the
amounts or other actions are fully disclosed publicly and the
rating implications, if any, can be assessed. The Rating Watch
will be resolved when there is clarity on the settlement terms,
amount, timing and financing plan.

Fitch's Rating Watch status indicates a heightened probability of
a rating change and the likely direction of such a change. They
are typically event-driven and, as such, are generally resolved
over a relatively short period. After a Rating Watch has been in
place for six months, Fitch's policy is to review the Rating Watch
every three months until it is resolved. Fitch will monitor any
public statements made by Avon, the SEC or the DOJ.

ADEQUATE METRICS AND LIQUIDITY

Avon's credit protection measures have improved since the company
cut its dividend, used a portion of its cash balances to reduce
overall debt levels by more than $400 million to $2.8 billion, and
refinanced near-term maturities this year. Leverage (debt/EBITDA)
declined to 2.75x for the LTM ended Sept. 30, 2013 from 3.78x at
year end 2012. Long term debt maturities in the next two years are
modest at less than $50 million annually. These are related to the
$52.5 million term loan which matures in 2015. FCF for the LTM was
$124 million, a turnaround from several years of marginal or
negative results. The improvement in FCF was supported by the 75%
dividend cut from roughly $400 million to $100 million annually.
Although liquidity declined moderately from $2 billion last year
to $1.8 billion as the company used a portion of its cash to
reduce debt, it remains adequate.

RATINGS SENSITIVITIES

Positive: Future developments that may, individually or
collectively, lead to a positive rating action include:

-- A positive rating action is not likely in the next 12 - 18
    months due to the slow pace of turnaround and potential
    negative financial ramifications of the FCPA investigation.

Negative: Future developments that may, individually or
collectively, lead to a negative rating action:

-- Negative outcomes related to the FCPA settlement which could
    have a material adverse impact on the company's earnings, cash
    flow, liquidity, financial condition and/or ongoing business.

-- Continued declines in key operational metrics, particularly in
    Latin America and Europe.


AVON PRODUCTS: Fitch Notes Uncertainty in Company's CDS Pricing
---------------------------------------------------------------
A 26% spike in Avon Products, Inc.'s (Avon) senior five-year
credit default swap (CDS) spreads underscores investor concern
precipitated by Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) language and
accelerating declines in North America. Fitch Ratings on Nov. 4,
2013, downgraded Avon's long-term ratings and placed its long-term
ratings on Rating Watch Negative.

Avon's CDS spreads have widened 26% over the past month,
significantly underperforming the 3% tightening observed for the
broader North American consumer goods industry. Meanwhile, CDS
liquidity for Avon has increased notably since the end of July, up
20 rankings to trade in the sixth regional percentile. This
signals increasing uncertainty over the future direction of the
company's CDS pricing.

Fitch's downgrade of Avon's ratings is due to deteriorating
operations and intensifying business model risk as reflected in
continued double-digit declines in revenue, volume, and
representative counts in North America and Asia Pacific through
the first three quarters of 2013. Additionally, there are
challenging market conditions in the Latin American and European
regions. The slow-growth macro environment has also contributed to
heightened competition.

Uncertainty remains regarding the potential size of the monetary
penalties related to the company's violation of the FCPA, which
prompted the Rating Watch Negative. In its 10-Q filing on Oct. 31,
2013, Avon wrote that the staff of the Securities and Exchange
Commission (SEC) proposed in September 2013 terms of a potential
settlement that included monetary penalties of a magnitude
significantly greater than the company's earlier offer of $12
million.

At Sept. 30, 2013, Avon had more than $1.8 billion in liquidity
with approximately $1.0 billion in revolver availability and $800
million of cash. As such, a significantly higher fine -- as was
suggested by a recent Wall Street Journal article in the $100
million range -- does not seem to warrant the more serious
undertones in the company's 10-Q. This undertone suggests that the
company's financial condition and ongoing business would be
materially adversely affected if it entered into settlements with
the SEC and U.S. Department of Justice with a proposal similar to
that of the SEC's staff.

While the language in Avon's 10-Q could indicate an abundance of
caution, the terminology used heightens Fitch's concerns that the
amounts in question could be larger than previously contemplated
or could have major financial effects to its business model. As a
result, Avon's ratings were placed on Watch Negative until the

implications, if any, can be assessed. The Rating Watch will be
resolved when there is clarity on the settlement terms, amount,

BERGENFIELD SENIOR: Can Access Cash Collateral Until Jan. 31
------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Morris Stern of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of New Jersey issued a fourth interim order that permits
Bergenfield Senior Housing LLC to use rents in which existing
secured creditors assert an interest.

Boiling Springs Savings Bank, its primary secured creditor, has
consented and licensed the Debtor to use rents to, among other
things, pay personnel, taxes, insurance and pay other operating
and maintenance expenses until Jan. 31, 2014.

As adequate protection from any diminution in value of the
lenders' collateral, the Debtor will grant the lenders replacement
liens in any and all assets in addition to rents, subject to carve
out on certain expenses.

The Court will convene a hearing on Jan. 27, 2014, at 10:00 a.m.,
to consider the Debtor's further use of cash collateral.
Objections, if any, are due Jan. 21, at 4:00 p.m.

BERGENFIELD SENIOR: Sale and Plan Deadlines Extended
----------------------------------------------------
In the chapter 11 case of Bergenfield Senior Housing, LLC, the

BERGENFIELD SENIOR: NAI James Hanson Okayed as Real Estate Broker
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court authorized Bergenfield Senior Housing,
LLC, to employ NAI James E. Hanson as real estate broker.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Oct. 3, 2013,
Mr. Hanson will have exclusive authority to market the Debtor's
property for sale on an "exclusive right to sell" basis up to and
including Dec. 31, 2013.

The Debtor will compensate Mr. Hanson's services with:

   a) 1.5% of the purchase price of the property shall be paid
      to the Broker; plus

   b) The 1.5% shall be the Broker's sole commission and shall be
      inclusive of any expenses incurred by Broker; plus

   c) In accordance with its Affidavit of Disinterestedness filed
      with the Bankruptcy Court, if a cooperating broker is
      involved in procuring a purchaser, the commission payment
      shall be divided on a mutually acceptable basis between
      Hanson and the co-broker; and

   d) The Debtor requests that Hanson's commission (and, if
      applicable, that portion of Hanson's commission payable to a
      co-broker as noted above) be payable upon closing of a sale
      approved by the Court, without the need for filing a
      separate fee application.

The Debtor attests that the firm is a "disinterested person" as
the term is defined in Section 101(14) of the Bankruptcy Code.

BEVERAGES & MORE!: S&P Assigns 'CCC+' Rating to $180MM Sr. Notes
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it assigned a 'CCC+'
issue-level rating to BevMo's $180 million senior secured notes
with a recovery rating of '5', indicating its expectation of
modest (10%-30%) recovery in the event of payment default.
Concurrently, S&P affirmed the 'B-' corporate credit rating.  The
outlook is stable.

"Our ratings on BevMo reflect our assessment of the company's
"weak" business risk profile and "highly leveraged" financial risk
profile.  The business risk profile incorporates our view of the
company's narrow business focus and participation in the highly
competitive, fragmented, and regulated alcoholic beverage retail
industry," said credit analyst Kristina Koltunicki.  "While BevMo
possesses a recognized brand name within this segment, its current
geographic footprint is limited to California, Arizona, and
Washington.  We do not anticipate geographic expansion into new
regions over the next 12 months because of capacity constraints
and a tough regulatory environment.  Competition, especially with
respect to promotional activity, remains intense."

The stable outlook reflects S&P's expectation that credit
protection measures will remain in line with a highly leveraged
financial risk profile over the next 12 months, as the company
decelerates its growth plans and increases its focus on cost
control.  S&P believes management's strategic shift to place more
emphasis on its core markets will assist in modestly higher EBITDA
generation over the next two years.

S&P could lower our rating if operating performance worsens,
potentially from deteriorating economic conditions in California,
resulting in moderate decreases in consumer spending or
operational challenges that cause a significant decline in
earnings.  Under these scenarios, interest coverage would approach
the low-1x area.  At that time, EBITDA would be approximately 25%
below our forecasted levels for the next year.

Although unlikely, S&P could raise its ratings if the company
exhibits strong performance improvement evidenced by consistent
positive comparable-store sales growth.  At that time, adjusted
leverage would reach approximately 6x and interest coverage would
exceed 2x. EBITDA would have to increase by more than 35% for this
to occur.


BLUEJAY PROPERTIES: May Pay $70,650 to Bankers' Bank of Kansas
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Robert D. Berger of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Kansas entered a final order in relation to Bluejay
Properties LLC's motion for continuance of deadlines under Section
362(d)(3) of the Bankruptcy Code.

On Nov. 28, 2012, the Court entered its final order authorizing
the use of cash collateral, which by its terms expires on Jan. 31,
2013.  The Debtor filed its motion for extension of order
authorizing the use of cash collateral.

Under the provisions of Section 362(d)(3), the Debtor will, not
later than Feb. 5, 2013, and on the 5th day of each month
thereafter, submit to Bankers' Bank of Kansas payment of $70,650,
which is an amount equal to interest at the then applicable non-
default contract rate of interest on the value of the creditor's
interest in the real estate.

For purposes of present calculation, such payment will be applied
against principal owed on the BBOK Claim.  The Court acknowledges
that the claim of Bankers' Bank of Kansas is disputed, and that
the BBOK Claim represents a syndicated loan including Bankers'
Bank of Kansas and various other lender participant banks.

In the event that the Court later determines that Bankers' Bank of
Kansas has received more than it is entitled to receive on the
BBOK Claim or otherwise in the bankruptcy action, the Debtor will
have a claim against Bankers' Bank of Kansas and, to the extent
this Court has jurisdiction over the Participant Banks, against
the Participant Banks, for any excess payments made pursuant to
the order.

The parties and the Court acknowledge that there is disagreement
among the parties and the courts as to the application of the
Section 362(d)(3) payment to principal instead of interest, but
recognize that the dispute as the claims of Bankers' Bank of
Kansas's claims and the uncertainty as to the value of the
liquidated collateral make present resolution of this issue
unnecessary.

BLUEJAY PROPERTIES: Court OKs Continued Hiring of CBRE as Broker
----------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Kansas, in a
courtroom minute sheet for the hearing held Oct. 16, 2013,
authorized Bluejay Properties LLC's continued employment of CBRE,
through its individual brokers Jeff Stingley and Gina Anderson, as
broker to assist in selling the Debtor's apartment complex.

The Court also determined that it will not appoint an examiner.
However, it directed that the Debtor will get the property sold at
the best price.

The Court added that the matter will be further considered at a
status hearing on January 2014, if no progress is made, the Court
will probably appoint trustee.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on July 9, 2013,
CBRE will list and advertise the sale of the apartment complex
located in Junction City, Kansas.

The source of the compensation to be paid to the proposed broker
will be from the sale proceeds of the property.  The commission
due to CBRE is two percent of the gross sales price.  If a sale is
not completed, pursuant to the contract the Debtor would only be
responsible for marketing costs not to exceed $1,500.  CBRE is to
be retained to sell the property pursuant to a liquidating plan.

To the best of the Debtor's knowledge, CBRE represents no interest
adverse to applicants as Debtor-in-Possession, or to the estate in
the matters upon which it is to be engaged by applicant as Debtor-
in-Possession, and its employment would be in the best interest of
this estate.

CARRIZO OIL: S&P Affirms 'B' CCR & Revises Outlook to Stable
------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it affirmed its 'B'
corporate credit rating and 'B-' senior unsecured debt rating on
Houston-based Carrizo Oil & Gas Inc.  At the same time, S&P
revised its outlook on the rating to stable from positive.

"The outlook revision primarily reflects Carrizo's smaller scale
and diversity of operations following the divestiture of its
Barnett assets," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Christine
Besset.

Moreover, despite the expectation that Carrizo will continue to
add significant oil production and reserves from the Eagle Ford
shale, this growth will not offset the loss of scale following the
Barnett sale within the next 12 months.  S&P also believes
potential increases in reserves tied to recently acquired acreage
in the Utica shale will not be realized within this time horizon,
but could provide some growth potential in 2015 and beyond.

The ratings on Carrizo continue to reflect S&P's assessment of the
company's participation in the highly cyclical and capital-
intensive oil and gas E&P industry, its relatively modest reserve
size and limited geographical diversity, and negative free cash
flow (before divestitures) due to high capital spending.  These
factors are offset by increasing oil and liquids production and
profitability, and a moderate debt leverage.

S&P assess Carrizo's business risk profile as "vulnerable" and
classifies the company's financial risk profile as "aggressive".
S&P classifies Carrizo's liquidity as "adequate", reflecting its
expectation that liquidity sources will exceed uses by 1.2x for
the next 12 months.

The issue-level rating on Carrizo's senior unsecured debt is 'B-'.
The recovery rating is '5', indicating S&P's expectations for
modest (10% to 30%) recovery in the event of a payment default.

The stable outlook reflects Standard & Poor's view that Carrizo
will continue to increase oil reserves and production while
keeping leverage at less than 4.5x.

S&P would consider a downgrade if production and reserves
decreased significantly, the company materially increased debt
funding such that leverage approached 4.75x, or liquidity became
less than adequate.

S&P would consider an upgrade if Carrizo increased proved reserves
to around 600 billion bcfe, with a 60% oil content and the
expectation of continued strong growth, while sustaining leverage
below 3.75x.


CENGAGE LEARNING: Creditors Want Mediation, Balk at Plan
--------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that the unsecured creditors' committee for Cengage
Learning Inc. is convinced there are "fatal flaws" in the college
textbook publisher's reorganization plan and scheduled a Nov. 12
hearing to seek permission to send creditors a letter urging them
to vote against it.

According to the report, voting against the plan is a backup
strategy for the committee.  At next week's hearing, they will try
convincing the U.S. Bankruptcy Judge in Brooklyn, New York, that
the plan shouldn't go forward until the court decides whether
first-lien lenders have valid liens on 15,500 copyrights and
$273.9 million held in a money-market account.

The committee argues that the entire plan is based on an
assumption the first-lien lenders' liens are valid.  At present,
there are multiple unresolved lawsuits and litigated disputes over
the validity of the liens and the value of collateral.

The committee doesn't want the plan to proceed until mediation is
completed.  There were sessions held already, with more scheduled
for December and early January.

The indenture trustee for second-lien lenders also opposes the
plan, as does the U.S. Trustee in some respects.

Cengage filed a reorganization plan in August, with amendments
later.  The original plan provides that first-lien lenders would
get the new stock plus a $1.5 billion term loan.

Cengage Learning Inc. filed a petition for Chapter 11
reorganization (Bankr. E.D.N.Y. Case No. 13-bk-44106) on July 2,
2013, in Brooklyn, New York, after signing an agreement where
holders of $2 billion in first-lien debt agree to support a
reorganization plan.  The plan will eliminate more than $4 billion
of $5.8 billion in debt.

First-lien lenders who signed the so-called plan-support agreement
include funds affiliated with BlackRock Inc., Franklin Mutual
Adviser LLC, KKR & Co. and Oaktree Capital Management LP.  Second-
lien creditors and holders of unsecured notes aren't part of the
agreement.

The Debtors have tapped Kirkland & Ellis LLP as counsel, Lazard
Freres & CO. LLC as financial advisor, Alvarez & Marsal North
America, LLC, as restructuring advisor, and Donlin, Recano &
Company, Inc., as claims and notice agent.

The Debtors filed a Joint Plan of Reorganization and Disclosure
Statement dated Oct. 3, 2013, which provides that the Debtors took
extreme care to advance and protect the interest of unsecured
creditors -- including seeking to protect four primary sources of
potential recoveries for unsecured creditors and providing them
with appropriate time to conduct diligence, and discuss their
conclusions on, among other things, the value of those sources of
potential recoveries.


CITIZENS DEVELOPMENT: Has Until Nov. 11 to Amend Plan Outline
-------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of California
approved a stipulation continuing the Nov. 13, 2013 hearing until
Dec. 2, at 2 p.m., to consider adequacy of information in the
Amended Disclosure Statement explaining Citizens Development
Corp.'s Plan of Reorganization.

The stipulation entered among the Debtors and the City of
Vallecitos, City of San Marcos, and the County of San Diego,
provides that, among other things:

   1. the Debtor has until Nov. 11, to file their Amended
      Disclosure Statement;

   2. objections, if any, are due Nov. 18; and

   3. replies, if any, to objections are due Nov. 25.

At the hearing, the Court will also held a status conference/
order to show cause hearing.

The Court previously approved a stipulation extending until
Oct. 30, the Debtors' deadline to file an Amended Disclosure
Statement.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on July 16, 2013, the
funding for the Plan will come from: (1) the additional financing;
(2) new value contribution in the amount of $400,000 to be made to
the Reorganized Debtor by Atlantica, the new investor; (3) the
Debtor's cash on hand which is estimated to be approximately
$25,000 as of the Effective Date -- which collectively equates to
$2,925,000 -- and (4) the revenue generated from continued
business operations.

COLORADO EDUCATIONAL: S&P Cuts ICR to BB on Continued Shortfalls
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its issuer credit
rating (ICR) to 'BB' from 'BBB-' on Colorado Educational and
Cultural Facilities Authority's series 2010 charter school revenue
bonds, issued on behalf of the Colorado Springs Charter Academy.
The outlook remains negative.

"The downgrade reflects our view of the academy's continued
audited shortfalls and the corresponding drop in cash and
coverage," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Carlotta Mills.

The ICR reflects S&P's view of:

   -- The possibility that the academy could fail to renew its
      charter prior to the bonds' maturity;

   -- Audited shortfalls in audited fiscal years 2011, 2012, and
      2013;

   -- Declining and low days' cash on hand of 16 days in audited
      fiscal 2013; and

   -- The academy's inability to meet its required fund balance
      covenant in 2012 and 2013, requiring the intervention of a
      consultant.


DESIGNLINE CORP: Wins Final Order to Obtain $1.5MM DIP Financing
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. J. Craig Whitley of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Western District of North Carolina issued a final order allowing
Designline Corporation, et al., to obtain a multiple draw term
credit facility of up to $1.5 million in the aggregate principal
amount pursuant to the terms of a senior secured superpriority
debtor-in-possession credit agreement among the borrowers, Cyrus
Opportunities Master Fubd II Ltd., Cyrus Select Opportunities
Master Fund, Ltd., Crescent I, LP and potential other lenders
thereto.

On Sept. 30, creditor Cameron Harris filed a supplemental
objection stating that the budget proposed by the Debtors does not
provide funds in escrow to pay for Harris' reasonable expenses and
professional fees incurred in moving to transfer the venue of the
cases from the District of Delaware to the Court.

On Oct. 10, 2013, an Amended DIP Credit Agreement was submitted to
correct the specified vehicle collateral description.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Sept. 20, 2013,
the Debtors are permitted to use the interim loan amount solely
for general corporate purposes and for costs of administering
their bankruptcy cases.  Specifically, the Debtors will use the
proceeds to continue to liquidate their business.

In exchange for the Loan, the DIP lenders are granted liens on the
Debtors' assets, claims and causes of action, subject to a carve-
out for fees to be paid to the bankruptcy court clerk, the
bankruptcy administrator and bankruptcy professionals of the
Debtors and the unsecured creditors committee.  The DIP Loan
Obligations of the Debtors constitute allowed superpriority
administrative expense claims pursuant to Sec. 364(c)(1) of the
Bankruptcy Code.

DETROIT, MI: $350 Million Financing May Not Fly, Moody's Says
-------------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that when Detroit comes to bankruptcy court on Nov. 14 for
approval of a $350 million loan, Moody's Investors Service said
the outcome is "uncertain" because the entire loan proceeds
would be paid out immediately.

According to the report, apart from the immediate payout of all
loan proceeds, Moody's said in a report on Nov. 6 that the
proposed Detroit loan is "structurally similar" to loans companies
take down to finance reorganization.

Where most corporate loans are "credit positive" for a business in
Chapter 11 reorganization, Moody's sees the "credit impact" as
"not clear at this time."

Using up the entire loan all at once points up Detroit's "narrow
cash position," Moody's said, even though the city is not paying
unsecured debt while withholding pension contributions.

Detroit intends to use the loan in part to terminate swap
agreements that encumber the city's casino-tax revenue. The loan
is designed to free cash for infrastructure improvements and save
$60 million eventually.

Detroit is in the midst of a trial over its eligibility to be in
Chapter 9 municipal bankruptcy. Unions and retirees are trying to
show the city didn't file bankruptcy in good faith because it
never attempted serious negotiations with creditors before filing.

                   About Detroit, Michigan

The city of Detroit, Michigan, weighed down by more than
$18 billion in accrued obligations, sought municipal bankruptcy
protection on July 18, 2013, by filing a voluntary Chapter 9
petition (Bankr. E.D. Mich. Case No. 13-53846).  Detroit listed
more than $1 billion in both assets and debts.

Kevyn Orr, who was appointed in March 2013 as Detroit's emergency
manager, signed the petition.  Detroit is represented by
lawyers at Jones Day and Miller Canfield Paddock and Stone PLC.

Michigan Governor Rick Snyder authorized the bankruptcy filing.

The filing makes Detroit the largest American city to seek
bankruptcy, in terms of population and the size of the debts and
liabilities involved.

The city's $18 billion in debt includes $5.85 billion in special
revenue obligations, $6.4 billion in post-employment benefits,
$3.5 billion for underfunded pensions, $1.13 billion on secured
and unsecured general obligations, and $1.43 billion on pension-
related debt, according to a court filing.  Debt service consumes
42.5 percent of revenue.  The city has 100,000 creditors and
20,000 retirees.

Detroit is represented by David G. Heiman, Esq., and Heather
Lennox, Esq., at Jones Day, in Cleveland, Ohio; Bruce Bennett,
Esq., at Jones Day, in Los Angeles, California; and Jonathan S.
Green, Esq., and Stephen S. LaPlante, Esq., at Miller Canfield
Paddock and Stone PLC, in Detroit, Michigan.

Sharon Levine, Esq., at Lowenstein Sandler LLP, is representing
the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees
and the International Union.

A nine-member official committee of retired workers was appointed
in the case.  The Retirees' Committee is represented by Dentons US
LLP.


DIGITAL DOMAIN: Seeks Final Plan Filing Exclusivity
---------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that Digital Domain Media Group Inc. said in a bankruptcy
court filing that "certain critical parties" may not agree with
the idea of proposing a liquidating Chapter 11 plan.

According to the report, the provider of visual effects for the
movie industry sold almost all its assets and filed papers on Nov.
5 for a fourth extension of its exclusive right to propose a plan.

If the bankruptcy judge in Delaware agrees at a Dec. 18 hearing,
the deadline will be pushed back four months, to March 5. The
extension will be the last because, by then, Digital Domain will
have been in bankruptcy for 18 months, the longest Congress allows
before any creditor can file a plan.

The remaining assets are lawsuits and a property in Port St.
Lucie, Florida, that could be sold in a few months, the company
said.

Previously, the company said there should be some recovery for the
unsecured creditors flowing from a settlement negotiated by the
unsecured creditors' committee with secured lenders.

Most of the business was sold for $36.7 million to a joint venture
between Galloping Horse America LLC, an affiliate of Beijing
Galloping Horse Co., and an affiliate of Reliance Capital Ltd.,
based in Mumbai.

                      About Digital Domain

Port St. Lucie, Florida-based Digital Domain Media Group, Inc. --
http://www.digitaldomain.com/-- engaged in the creation of

Digital Domain Media Group, Inc. and 13 affiliates sought
Chapter 11 protection (Bankr. D. Del. Lead Case No. 12-12568) on
Sept. 11, 2012, to sell its business for $15 million to
Searchlight Capital Partners LP, subject to higher and better
offers.  The company disclosed assets of $205 million and
liabilities totaling $214 million.

The Debtors also have sought ancillary relief in Canada, pursuant
to the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act in the Supreme Court
of British Columbia, Vancouver Registry.

Attorneys at Pachulski Stang Ziehl & Jones serve as counsel to the
Debtors.  FTI Consulting, Inc.'s Michael Katzenstein is the chief
restructuring officer.  Kurtzman Carson Consultants LLC is the
claims and notice agent.  An official committee of unsecured
creditors appointed in the case is represented by lawyers at
Sullivan Hazeltine Allinson LLC and Brown Rudnick LLP.

At a bankruptcy auction, the principal part of the business was
purchased by a joint venture between Galloping Horse America LLC,
an affiliate of Beijing Galloping Horse Co., and an affiliate of
Reliance Capital Ltd., based in Mumbai.  The $36.7 million total
value of the contact includes $3.6 million to cure defaults on
contracts and $2.9 million in reimbursement of payroll costs. As
the result of a settlement negotiated by the unsecured creditors'
committee with secured lenders, there will be some recovery for
the committee's constituency.

EDISON MISSION: Wants IBEW Local 15 CBA Extended Until Dec. 2014
----------------------------------------------------------------
Edison Mission Energy, et al., ask the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the Northern District of Illinois to extend the collective
bargaining agreement among Debtor Midwest Generation EME, LLC, and
the International Brotherhood of Electric Workers Local 15.

According to the Debtors, approximately 93 percent of the Debtors'
hourly employees are members of Local 15.  All of these employees
are employed pursuant to the CBA, which expires on Dec. 31, 2013.

In the face of the upcoming expiration of the CBA, MWG and Local
15 leadership have engaged in arms'-length negotiations in an
effort to come to terms on an extension to the CBA, thereby
avoiding the risk and uncertainty associated with expiration
or termination of the CBA.

Moreover, the proposed transaction to sell substantially all of
EME's assets and interests in its subsidiaries to NRG Energy, Inc.
contemplates an extension and ultimate assumption of the CBA as
part of a chapter 11 plan of reorganization that incorporates the
NRG transaction.

In this relation, MWG and Local 15 leadership reached agreement on
the terms of a one-year extension to the CBA memorialized as part
of (a) a memorandum of understanding, and (b) a letter with
respect to MWG's short-term incentive compensation policy.

The key terms of the CBA extension are:

Term:                     One year, through Dec. 31, 2014.

Base Wages:               Unchanged. Current base wages are
                          approximately 108-110% of median for the
                          Central/Midwest region based on market
                          data.

Incentive Compensation:   Increase short-term incentive plan
                          payment from a historical practice of 4%
                          to 6% of base pay. Cost to company at
                          "target" level performance would be
                          approximately $850/employee (i.e.
                          approximately $365,000 in the aggregate)
                          for each 6-month performance measurement
                          period.

Health/Welfare Benefits:  Local 15 leadership has consented to
                          certain changes, including basing the
                          employer subsidy on the 80/60 preferred
                          provider option.

Ratification Incentive:   $1,000/employee (i.e. approximately
                          $450,000 in the aggregate).

Under the Benefits Agreement, MWG is required to offer an
exclusive provider organization plan among its health care options
and to base the employer subsidy on the cost of the EPO plan.  As
part of the CBA Extension, MWG has agreed with Local 15 leadership
to base the employer subsidy on the cost of an 80/60 preferred
provider option, which MWG anticipates will result in savings of
$400,000 to $1,000,000 in 2014.  Expectations are that members
will migrate from the current EPO to a 90/70 PPO plan, and in so
doing the "per employee" contribution would increase, on average,
by approximately $1,300 per full-time employee plus the cost of
deductibles.

The Debtors scheduled a Nov. 6 hearing on the approval of the
motion.

EME's $3.7 billion of outstanding public indebtedness and its

ENDO HEALTH: S&P Affirms 'BB-' Corp. Credit Rating; Outlook Stable
------------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it affirmed its 'BB-'
corporate credit rating on pharmaceutical company Endo Health
Solutions Inc.  The outlook is stable.

At the same time, S&P placed its 'BB+' credit rating on Endo's
senior secured debt and 'BB-' rating on Endo's senior unsecured
debt on CreditWatch with negative implications because the size of
these debt classes could increase relative to our estimate of
Endo's value in the event of default.  S&P's recovery rating on
the senior secured debt is '1', indicating its expectation for
very high (90% to 100%) recovery of principal, and its recovery
rating on the senior unsecured debt is '4', indicating its
expectation for average (30% to 50%) recovery of principal, both
in the event of payment default.

The acquisition of Paladin does not alter S&P's "fair" assessment
of Endo's business risk profile, with gradually improving product
diversity.  S&P do not expect the transactions to materially
affect Endo's leverage, but it continues to believe Endo's growth
goals and financial policies are "aggressive", and S&P expects
leverage to rise above 4x, from 2.7x as of Sept. 30, 2013,
reflecting both higher debt levels and lower EBITDA.  In S&P's
view, the creation of an Irish corporate structure provides a
platform and incentive for sizeable debt-financed acquisitions.

S&P expects to resolve the CreditWatch listings after Endo
announces the terms of its planned debt refinancing.

"The rating on Endo reflects its "fair" business risk profile,
with still-significant product and therapeutic concentrations.
Endo's business portfolio is in transition as sales of its key
branded pharmaceutical products decline with the loss of market
exclusivity, Endo's lower-margin generic drug unit continues to
grow, it phases out early-stage research and development, and we
believe the HealthTronics unit will be sold," said credit analyst
Gail Hessol.  "We expect Endo to emphasize acquisitions and in-
licensing of drugs, in part, because we believe its existing
operations (including Paladin and soon-to-be-acquired Boca
Pharmacal LLC) will not achieve EBITDA growth over the next five
years, including benefits of Endo's ongoing cost reduction
program.  We expect Paladin to account for only about 10% of
Endo's 2014 revenue and we expect Paladin's margins to be somewhat
lower than Endo's overall margins."

The rating outlook is stable, reflecting S&P's view that Endo will
manage its EBITDA decline and growth ambitions such that leverage
will rise but remain below 5x.

S&P could raise the rating if the company stabilizes its revenue
and earnings base and it become convinced that leverage would
remain below 4x.  This could result from of a combination of
developments: if the pace of Lidoderm and Opana revenue declines
is slower than S&P expects; if growth in the company's generic
drugs or new drugs in its pipeline exceed its expectations; and if
acquired businesses make a meaningful contribution.  Leverage
could also remain below 4x if acquisition activity is more
moderate than S&P anticipates, if the company meaningfully pays
down debt, or if it achieves higher than anticipated cost
synergies from acquired companies.

S&P could lower the rating if it expects leverage to rise above
5x.  This could occur if revenue from branded products drops more
rapidly than it expects, if growth of generic drugs falters, if
cost reduction efforts are not as successful as S&P anticipates,
or if the company becomes more aggressive in terms of acquisition
activity.


ENERGAE LP: North Dakota Shareholders Seeks Receivership
--------------------------------------------------------
The Mason City Globe Gazette (globegazette.com) reports that a
Cerro Gordo County judge set Tuesday as the hearing date for the
second in a series of petitions by North Dakota shareholders to
put the Energae LP company into receivership.

Judge Colleen Wieland set the hearing in the case of Clifton and
Joshua Hylden of Park River, N.D., and the Rev. Lee Laaveg of
Spencer, formerly of Forest City, in a petition involving Energae
LP and i-Lenders LLC, all based in Clear Lake or Mason City,
according to globegazette.com.

The hearing is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. Tuesday at the Cerro Gordo
County Courthouse.

The report notes that attorneys for the plaintiffs said that no
representatives of Energae LP or i-Lenders responded to the
petition.  They said a notice of default was mailed to the two
companies' last known registered agents along with the court's
order, the report relates.

The report discloses that an earlier state petition for
receivership that was filed by two Fargo, N.D., residents was
settled Aug. 26, the day before that hearing was set to take place
in Mason City.

Clifton Hylden is a brother to both Robert and the Rev. Todd
Hylden, a Lutheran pastor from Fergus Falls, Minn., who formerly
was vice president of marketing for Energae LP. Energae officials
include Duane Darrell Smith of Forest City, who was identified as
director of operations for the company during a meeting in
Grafton, N.D., in 2012.

Mr. Smith, the report notes, was promoting a plan for farmers to
put a minimum of $10,000 into the company and to put sugar beets
through a sugar beet-to-ethanol plant.  Energae and i-Lenders are
associated with other ethanol and wood-to-electricity plants in
Iowa, among other things, the report relates.  The Grafton plans
fell through.

In 2013, the report notes that Mr. Smith dropped appeals and was
permanently stripped of his insurance and securities licenses by
the Iowa Insurance Division.

Separately, federal officials appear interested in the company.
On Oct. 3, Mr. Smith's home and places of business were visited by
FBI and other officials, who carried out documents.  On Oct. 23,
some former Energae officials testified at a federal grand jury in
Cedar Rapids after being subpoenaed by the Internal Revenue
Service, the report adds.

will recover $45 million, subject to certain adjustments.  Hilco
will be unconditionally responsible for all store closing
expenses.  In consideration of the services to be provided by
Hilco, the firm will be entitled to retain all proceeds from the

the assets to GWNE or sell the assets in whole or part, to the
highest and best successful bidders at an auction.  Interested
bidders must submit qualified bids on or before Dec. 2.  An

GASTAR EXPLORATION: S&P Retains 'B-' Rating on Notes After Add-On
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said its 'B-' senior secured
note rating on Houston-based Gastar Exploration USA Inc.'s 8.625%
senior secured notes due 2018 remains unchanged after the company
announced it will seek to add on $125 million to the existing
$200 million notes outstanding.  This brings the total issue
amount to $325 million.  The recovery rating on the notes is '3',
indicating S&P's expectation of meaningful (50% to 70%) recovery
in the event of a payment default.

The 'B-' corporate credit rating and stable outlook on Gastar are
unaffected.  The exploration and production company intends to use
proceeds to fund the West Edmond Hunton Lime Unit acquisition and
for general corporate purposes.

The ratings on Gastar reflect its very small reserve and
production base, currently high concentration of production in the
Marcellus shale, aggressive capital spending plan that could
significantly weaken its liquidity, and its natural gas-weighted
reserve base.  The ratings also reflect Standard & Poor's
assessment of the volatility and capital-intensive nature of the
oil and gas industry.  In S&P's view, these weaknesses are only
partially buffered by a decent reserve life and a good reserve
replacement history.


GATEHOUSE MEDIA: Judge Confirms Chapter 11 Restructuring Plan
-------------------------------------------------------------
Peg Brickley, writing for Daily Bankruptcy Review, reported that
GateHouse Media Inc. on Nov. 6 won court approval of a Chapter 11
exit plan that chops into its nearly $1.2 billion debt load and
sets it up to launch as part of a new community-news and digital-
marketing effort.

Law360 reported that Judge Mary F. Walrath confirmed GateHouse's
reorganization and debt restructuring plan, which was confirmed by
every secured creditor and supported by an affiliate of Fortress
Investment Group LLC, which nudged GateHouse into a quick
bankruptcy in September.

Prior to the Petition Date and pursuant to a plan support
agreement, GateHouse solicited votes on the Plan over from holders
of claims under its 2007 secured credit facility and certain
related interest rate swaps.  The Plan was accepted by the only
impaired class of creditors entitled to vote on it.  Specifically,
79 out of the 80 holders of secured debt entitled to vote holding
an aggregate amount of $1,199,317,153 (representing 99.99% of the
total secured debt) voted to accept the Plan.  No creditors voted
to reject the Plan.

Pension, trade and all other unsecured creditors of GateHouse
would not be impaired under the Plan, and their votes were not
solicited.  GateHouse's common stock would be canceled under the
Plan, and holders of secured debt would have the option of
receiving a cash distribution equal to 40% of their claims, or
stock in New Media Investment Group Inc., a new holding company
that will own GateHouse and Local Media Group.

The Plan hinges on the combination of Gatehouse with assets of Dow
Jones Local Media Group, which Newcastle Investment Corp. bought
for $87 million.

GOLDKING HOLDINGS: Meeting to Form Creditors' Panel on Nov. 14
--------------------------------------------------------------
Roberta A. DeAngelis, United States Trustee for Region 3, will
hold an organizational meeting on Nov. 14, 2013 at 1:00 p.m. in
the bankruptcy cases of Goldking Holdings, LLC, et al.  The
meeting will be held at:

         J. Caleb Boggs Federal Building
         844 King Street, Room 2112
         Wilmington DE 19801

The sole purpose of the meeting will be to form a committee or
committees of unsecured creditors in the Debtors' case.

The organizational meeting is not the meeting of creditors
pursuant to Section 341 of the Bankruptcy Code.  A representative
of the Debtor, however, may attend the Organizational Meeting, and
provide background information regarding the bankruptcy cases.

To increase participation in the Chapter 11 proceeding, Section
1102 of the Bankruptcy Code requires that the United States
Trustee appoint a committee of unsecured creditors as soon as
practicable.  The Committee ordinarily consists of the persons,
willing to serve, that hold the seven largest unsecured claims
against the debtor of the kinds represented on the committee.
Section 1103 of the Bankruptcy Code provides that the Committee
may consult with the debtor, investigate the debtor and its
business operations and participate in the formulation of a plan
of reorganization.  The Committee may also perform other services
as are in the interests of the unsecured creditors whom it
represents.

Goldking Holdings LLC, an oil-and-gas exploration company, sought
bankruptcy protection (Bankr. D. Del. Case No. 13-12820) in
Wilmington on October 30, 2013, from creditors with plans to sell
virtually all its assets.  The case is before Judge Brendan
Linehan Shannon.

Robert S. Brady, Esq., at Young, Conaway, Stargatt & Taylor, LLP,
in Wilmington, Delaware, represents the Debtors.  Lantana Oil &
Gas Partners serves as the Debtors' financial advisors.  The
Debtors' notice, claims, solicitation and balloting agent is Epiq
Bankruptcy Solutions, LLC.


HUSKY INTERNATIONAL: S&P Affirms 'B' CCR over Schottli Grp Deal
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it affirmed its 'B' long-
term corporate credit rating on Bolton, Ont.-based plastic
injection molding equipment manufacturer Husky International Ltd.
The outlook is stable.

S&P also affirmed its 'B' issue-level rating on Husky's
US$1.08 billion first-lien term loan and US$110 million revolver.
The first-lien term loan includes a US$160 million add-on
incremental term loan B due 2018, the proceeds of which Husky
plans to use to help fund its acquisition of Schottli Group.  The
recovery rating on this debt remains '3', indicating S&P's
expectation for meaningful (50%-70%) recovery for lenders in the
event of default.

In addition, S&P affirmed its 'CCC+' issue-level rating on Husky's
US$570 million senior unsecured notes.  The '6' recovery rating on
this debt is unchanged, indicating S&P's expectation for
negligible (0%-10%) recovery for lenders in a default situation.

Along with proceeds from the new US$160 million add-on, Husky is
also using available cash to fund its acquisition of Schottli,
which is expected to close in December 2013.

Pro forma for the transaction, Standard & Poor's adjusted debt to
annualized EBITDA will increase to approximately the high 5x area.
However, S&P expects that leverage will decline to the low 5x area
by the end of fiscal 2015, largely through EBITDA growth.

"The ratings on Husky mainly reflect what Standard & Poor's views
as the company's highly leveraged financial risk profile,
highlighted by the company's debt-to-EBITDA ratio in excess of 5x,
private equity ownership, and the cyclical nature of the plastic
injection molding machinery business," said Standard & Poor's
credit analyst Jamie Koutsoukis.  "Partially offsetting these
concerns are what we deem Husky's fair business risk profile,
given the company's leading 70% market share in the sale of
plastic injection molding machines and systems for its target
markets, and its diverse customer and geographic base," Ms.
Koutsoukis added.

Husky is a privately owned global provider of manufacturing
systems and related tooling parts and services for the plastics
injection molding equipment market including the world's largest
installed base of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) injection
molding machines.  Key manufacturing facilities are in Canada, the
U.S., Luxembourg, Austria, and China.  With its announced
acquisition of Schottli, Husky will now be a global leader in a
number of select medical applications, such as syringes,
infusion/transfusion products, diagnostic systems, and feminine
care items; as well, Schottli's closures business complements
Husky's existing closures business by providing additional
technology and capacity in both established and growing markets.

The stable outlook reflects S&P's expectation that the company
will continue to generate positive cash flows, allowing it to
prepay some debt.  However, given the current debt levels, S&P
expects leverage to remain above 5x for the next 18-24 months.
S&P could raise the ratings if a combination of stronger-than-
expected EBITDA generation and debt paydown leads to leverage
below 5x for a sustained period.  On the other hand, S&P could
lower the ratings if there is an unexpected reversal of business
prospects or major acquisitions, or if dividend activity pushes up
leverage from its already-high levels to above 6x on a sustained
basis and liquidity becomes pressured.


INSTITUTO MEDICO: Section 341(a) Meeting Scheduled for Dec. 9
-------------------------------------------------------------
A meeting of creditors in the bankruptcy case of Instituto Medico
del Norte Inc. will be held on Dec. 9, 2013, at 09:00 a.m. at 341
meeting room, Ochoa Building, 500 Tanca Street, First Floor, San
Juan.  Creditors have until March 9, 2014, to submit their proofs
of claim.  The deadline for governmental units to file their
proofs of claim will be on April 28, 2014.

This is the first meeting of creditors required under Section
341(a) of the Bankruptcy Code in all bankruptcy cases.

All creditors are invited, but not required, to attend.  This
meeting of creditors offers the one opportunity in a bankruptcy
proceeding for creditors to question a responsible office of the
Debtor under oath about the company's financial affairs and
operations that would be of interest to the general body of
creditors.

Instituto Medico del Norte, Inc., aka Centro Medico Wilma N.
Vazquez, aka Hospital Wilma N. Vazquez Skill Nursing Facility of
Centro Medico Wilma N. Vazquez, sought protection under Chapter 11
of the Bankruptcy Code on Oct. 30, 2013 (Bankr. D.P.R. Case No.
13-08961).  The case is assigned to Judge Mildred Caban Flores.

The Debtor is represented by Fausto David Godreau Zayas, Esq. --

JOURNAL REGISTER: Exits Chapter 11 as Pulp Finish
-------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that Journal Register Co. changed its name to Pulp Finish
I Co. after selling its newspapers and emerged from Chapter 11
last week under a reorganization plan approved on Oct. 15 when the
bankruptcy judge in Manhattan signed a confirmation order.

According to the report, the disclosure statement told unsecured
creditors they won't recover more than 5 percent and might get
nothing.

Journal Register filed for Chapter 11 reorganization in September
2012 and sold its newspaper business to lender and owner Alden
Global Capital Ltd., mostly in exchange for $114.2 million in
secured debt and $6 million in cash.  After debts with higher
priority were paid, what's left from the cash and a $630,000 tax
refund represented most of the unsecured creditors' recovery, the
New York-based company has said.

Journal Register had been in bankruptcy before. A Chapter 11 case
three years previously gave ownership to secured lenders in
exchange for debt.

Journal Register listed assets of $235 million and liabilities
totaling $268.6 million. At the outset of the new Chapter 11 case,
debt included about $13.2 million on a revolving credit. Alden had
two term loans totaling $152.3 million, acquired from lenders in
the prior bankruptcy.

                     About Journal Register

Journal Register Company -- http://www.JournalRegister.com/-- was
the publisher of the New Haven Register and other papers in 10
states, including Philadelphia, Detroit and Cleveland, and in
upstate New York.  JRC was managed by Digital First Media and is
affiliated with MediaNews Group, Inc., the nation's second largest
newspaper company as measured by circulation.

Journal Register, along with its affiliates, first filed for
Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No.
09-10769) on Feb. 21, 2009.  Attorneys at Willkie Farr & Gallagher
LLP, served as counsel to the Debtors.  Attorneys at Otterbourg,
Steindler, Houston & Rosen, P.C., represented the official
committee of unsecured creditors.  Journal Register emerged from
Chapter 11 protection under the terms of a pre-negotiated plan.

Journal Register exited the 2009 restructuring with $225 million
in debt and with a legacy cost structure, which includes leases,
defined benefit pensions and other liabilities that have become
unsustainable and threatened the Company's efforts for a
successful digital transformation.  Journal Register managed to
reduce the debt by 28% with the Company servicing in excess of
$160 million of debt.

Journal Register returned to bankruptcy (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Lead Case
No. 12-13774) on Sept. 5, 2012, to sell the business to 21st CMH
Acquisition Co., an affiliate of funds managed by Alden Global
Capital LLC.  The deal was subject to higher and better offers.

Alden Global is the holder of two terms loans totaling $152.3
million.  Alden Global acquired the stock and the term loans from
lenders in Journal Register's prior bankruptcy.

Journal Register disclosed total assets of $235 million and
liabilities totaling $268.6 million as of July 29, 2012.  This
includes $13.2 million owing on a revolving credit to Wells Fargo
Bank NA.

Bankruptcy Judge Stuart M. Bernstein presides over the 2012 case.
Neil E. Herman, Esq., Rachel Jaffe Mauceri, Esq., and Patrick D.
Fleming, Esq., at Morgan, Lewis & Bockius, LLP; and Michael R.
Nestor, Esq., Kenneth J. Enos, Esq., and Andrew L. Magaziner,
Esq., at Young Conaway Stargatt & Taylor LLP, serve as the 2012
Debtors' counsel.  SSG Capital Advisors, LLC, serves as financial
advisors.  American Legal Claims Services LLC acts as claims
agent.  The petition was signed by William Higginson, executive
vice president of operations.

Otterbourg, Steindler, Houston & Rosen, P.C., represents Wells
Fargo.  Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld LLP, represents the
Debtors' Tranche A Lenders and Tranche B Lenders.  Emmet, Marvin &
Martin LLP, serves as counsel to Wells Fargo, in its capacity as
Tranche A Agent and the Tranche B Agent.

Gerald C. Bender, Esq., at Lowenstein Sandler LLP, represented the
Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors.  FTI Consulting, Inc.,
served as financial advisor.

The Journal Register bankruptcy has been renamed Pulp Finish I
Co., after the estate sold the newspaper business to lender and
owner Alden Global Capital Ltd., mostly in exchange for $114.15
million in secured debt and $6 million cash.  After debts with
higher priority are paid, what's left from the cash and a $630,000
tax refund represents most of unsecured creditors' recovery.
There were no bids to compete with Alden's offer.  Alden paid off
financing for the bankruptcy and assumed up to $22.8 million in
liabilities, thus taking care of most trade suppliers who
otherwise would have ended up as unsecured creditors.  In
addition, the lenders waived their deficiency claims, so
recoveries by unsecured creditors won't be diluted.


KEMET CORP: Incurs $13.1 Million Net Loss in Second Quarter
-----------------------------------------------------------
KEMET Corporation reported a net loss of $13.09 million on
$212.74 million of net sales for the quarter ended Sept. 30, 2013,
as compared with a net loss of $24.92 million on $215.99 million
of net sales for the same period during the prior year.

For the six months ended Sept. 30, 2013, the Company reported a
net loss of $48.23 million on $415.46 million of net sales as
compared with a net loss of $42.67 million on $439.62 million of
net sales for the same period a year ago.

The Company's balance sheet at Sept. 30, 2013, showed $880.21
million in total assets, $642.30 million in total liabilities and
$237.90 million in total stockholders' equity.

"We communicated last quarter that we expected a significant
positive change in our margins and net results this quarter as we
straightened out our supply chain issues and it is clear through
our financial results that we are putting those issues behind us,"
stated Per Loof, KEMET's chief executive officer.  "Revenue
exceeded our expectations in a challenging economic environment
and we continue to see a slow growth scenario over the next couple
of quarters for the top line.  Regardless of the top line we
expect that our margins will continue to improve quarter over
quarter through the remaining two quarters of our fiscal year,"
continued Loof.

                            About KEMET

KEMET, based in Greenville, South Carolina, is a manufacturer and

tantalum, multilayer ceramic, film, solid aluminum, electrolytic,
and paper capacitors.  KEMET's common stock is listed on the NYSE

                            *     *     *

As reported by the TCR on March 26, 2013, Moody's Investors
Service downgraded KEMET Corp.'s Corporate Family Rating to Caa1
from B2 and the Probability of Default Rating to Caa1-PD from B2-
PD based on Moody's expectation that KEMET's liquidity will be
pressured by maturing liabilities and negative free cash flow due
to the interest burden and continued operating losses at the Film
and Electrolytic segment.

As reported by the TCR on Aug. 9, 2013, Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services lowered its corporate credit rating on Simpsonville,
S.C.-based KEMET Corp. to 'B-' from 'B+'.

"The downgrade is based on continued top-line and margin pressures
and lagging results from the restructuring of the Film &
Electrolytic [F&E] business, which combined with cyclical weak
end-market demand, has resulted in sustained, elevated leverage
well in excess of 5x, persistent negative FOCF, and diminishing
liquidity," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Alfred
Bonfantini.


LEVEL 3: Unit to Sell $640 Million of Senior Notes
--------------------------------------------------
Level 3 Communications, Inc.'s wholly owned subsidiary, Level 3
Financing, Inc., has agreed to sell $640 million aggregate
principal amount of its 6.125 Percent Senior Notes due 2021 in a
private offering to "qualified institutional buyers," as defined
in Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and
non-U.S. persons outside the United States under Regulation S
under the Securities Act of 1933.

The 6.125 Percent Senior Notes were priced to investors at 100
percent of their principal amount and will mature on Jan. 15,
2021.  Level 3 Financing's obligations under the 6.125 Percent
Senior Notes will be fully and unconditionally guaranteed on an
unsecured basis by Level 3 Communications, Inc.

The net proceeds from the offering of the notes, together with
cash on hand, will be used to redeem, satisfy and discharge,
defease or otherwise repay all of Level 3 Financing's outstanding
10 Percent Senior Notes due 2018.

The offering is expected to be completed on Nov. 14, 2013, subject
to the satisfaction or waiver of customary closing conditions.

The senior notes will not be registered under the Securities Act
of 1933 or any state securities laws, and unless so registered,
may not be offered or sold except pursuant to an applicable
exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act
of 1933 and applicable state securities laws.

                   About Level 3 Communications

Headquartered in Broomfield, Colorado, Level 3 Communications,
Inc., is a publicly traded international communications company
with one of the world's largest communications and Internet

billion in total assets, $11.70 billion in total liabilities and
$1.14 billion in total stockholders' equity.

                           *     *     *

In October 2012, Fitch Ratings affirmed the 'B' Issuer Default
Ratings (IDRs) assigned to Level 3.  LVLT's ratings recognize, in
part, the de-leveraging of the company's balance sheet resulting
from its acquisition of Global Crossing Limited (GLBC).

As reported by the TCR on June 5, 2013, Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services raised its corporate credit rating on Broomfield, Colo.-
based global telecommunications provider Level 3 Communications
Inc. to 'B' from 'B-'.  "The upgrade reflects improved debt
leverage, initially from the acquisition of the lower-leveraged
Global Crossing in October 2011, and subsequently from realization
of the bulk of what the company expects to eventually be $300
million of annual operating synergies," said Standard & Poor's
credit analyst Richard Siderman.

MED-DEPOT INC: Bank Lender Still Opposes Chapter 11 Plan
--------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that Med-Depot Inc. has yet to persuade revolving credit
lender Texas Capital Bank NA to support the proposed bankruptcy
reorganization plan.

According to the report, consequently, the company, a provider of
respiratory therapy and home medical devices for hospices and
their patients, is seeking a four-month extension of exclusive
plan-filing rights to March 25.

Med-Depot filed for bankruptcy protection in July, proposed a
Chapter 11 plan and received approval of the explanatory
disclosure statement in October.

The confirmation hearing for approval of the plan has been set
back twice and is now on the calendar for Nov. 18.

In a Nov. 4 court filing, Med-Depot said the bank and several
other creditors oppose the plan.  The company said it hopes at
least to narrow disputed issues before a contested confirmation
hearing.

                       About Med-Depot Inc.

Med-Depot, Inc., filed a Chapter 11 petition (Bankr. E.D. Tex.
Case No. 13-41815) on July 26, 2013, in Sherman, Texas.  Attorneys

the Debtor.  The Debtor estimated assets of $1,000,001 to
$10,000,000 and debt of $10,000,001 to $50,000,000.  Parent
Med-Depot Holdings, Inc., also sought bankruptcy protection.

Based in Plano, Texas, 64 miles (103 kilometers) north of
Dallas, Med-Depot entered bankruptcy after working out a plan to
restructure the first-lien debt and give stock in return for the
second-lien loan.

Med-Depot entered bankruptcy after working out a plan to

The company projected a $1.8 million net loss in the fiscal year
on revenue of $14.5 million. By fiscal 2015, Med-Depot was
forecasting revenue of $20.8 million and $1.6 million in net
income.


METRO AFFILIATES: Seeks Authority to Obtain $37-Mil. DIP Loan

U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York to

revolver with $37 million in availability, subject to a borrowing

MISSION NEW ENERGY: Posts A$10 Million Net Profit in Fiscal 2013
----------------------------------------------------------------
Mission NewEnergy Limited filed with the U.S. Securities and
Exchnage Commission its annual report on Form 20-F disclosing
net profit of A$10.05 million on A$8.41 million of total revenue
for the year ended June 30, 2013, as compared with a net loss of
A$6.19 million on A$38.20 million of total revenue during the
prior fiscal year.

The Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2013, showed A$20.10
million in total assets, A$32.60 million in total liabilities and
a A$12.50 million total deficiency.

BDO Audit (WA) Pty Ltd, in Perth, Western Australia, issued a
"going concern" qualification on the consolidated financial
statements for the year ended June 30, 2013.  The independent
auditors noted that the Company incurred operating cash outflows
of $3.7 million during the year ended 30 June 2013 and, as of that
date the consolidated entity's total liability exceeded its total
assets by $12.5 million.  These conditions, along with other
matters, raise substantial doubt the Company's ability to continue
as a going concern.

MTS LAND: Plan Hearing Again Continued, Now Slated for Nov. 21
--------------------------------------------------------------
The hearing to consider confirmation of MTS Land LLC and MTS Golf
LLC's Third Amended Joint Plan of Reorganization has been
continued to Nov. 21, 2013, at 9:00 a.m.  The hearing has already
been continued several times.

In a limited objection, the U.S. Trustee for the District of
Arizona insists that the exculpation provision set forth in the
Plan is inappropriate and should be deleted because:

   (i) Such releases do not benefit a bankruptcy estate;

  (ii) Section 524(e) prohibits a bankruptcy court from confirming
a plan with third-party releases; and

(iii) Contractual arrangements holding persons harmless for the
damages caused by their negligence are disfavored in the law,
especially where the services rendered are professional in nature
or are performed in a court-supervised bankruptcy proceeding.

The Debtors counter that the exculpation clause is in the best
interest of the estates as the exculpated parties contributed
substantially to the Chapter 11 cases by resolving substantial
claims against the estates, adding significant value to the
Debtors' assets, and clearing a path toward confirmation of the
Modified Plan.

Counsel to the Debtors, Gerald M. Gordon, Esq., at Gordon Silver,
added in court filings, "Although the Ninth Circuit precedent
provides that a plan of reorganization cannot discharge third-
party obligations of a nondebtor, bankruptcy courts have been
quick to distinguish such precedent in approving exculpation
clauses under similar circumstances as those present here.  The
Exculpation Clause has a very specific, temporal limitation and is
narrow in scope to protect those that assisted with the Chapter 11
cases from liability arising from the actions taken in the Chapter
11 cases.  Similar exculpation provisions have been routinely
approved by bankruptcy courts.  Finally, the UST's assertion that
the rules of professional conduct prohibit the Court from
approving the Exculpation Clause is not persuasive.  Consequently,
the Court should overrule the objection."

                   Further Modifications to Plan

The Debtors on Oct. 30, 2013, made further modifications to the
Third Amended Joint Plan of Reorganization.  A copy of the
document is available for free at:

    http://bankrupt.com/misc/MTS_Golf_3rd_Amended_Plan.pdf

The Debtors' Plan is a 100% payment plan.  All creditors with
allowed claims will be paid the amount of their allowed claims in
full through the Plan.  General unsecured creditors are still
impaired -- they will be paid in full in cash, plus post-Effective
Date interest on the first anniversary of the Effective Date.  The
holders of equity securities are unimpaired and will retain all of
their legal interests.

                          About MTS Land

MTS Land, LLC, and MTS Golf, LLC, own and operate the now dormant
Mountain Shadows Golf Club.  They filed separate Chapter 11
petitions (Bankr. D. Ariz. Case Nos. 12-16257 and 12-16257) in

signed by Robert A. Flaxman, administrative agent.

Lender U.S. Bank is represented by Steven D. Jerome, Esq., and
Evans O'Brien, Esq., at Snell & Wilmer L.L.P.

The Plan filed in the Debtors' cases provides that all creditors
with allowed claims will be paid the amount of their allowed
claims in full through the Plan.  Holders of equity securities of
Debtors will retain all of their legal interests.

The U.S. Trustee for Region 14 advised the Court that an official
committee of unsecured creditors has not been appointed because an
insufficient number of persons holding unsecured claims against
the Debtors have expressed interest in serving on a committee.
The U.S. Trustee reserves the right to appoint a committee if
interest develop among the creditors.


NGPL PIPECO: S&P Revises Outlook to Negative & Affirms 'B' CCR
--------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it revised its
outlook on Houston-based NGPL PipeCo LLC to negative from stable.
At the same time, S&P affirmed its 'B' corporate credit and senior
secured debt ratings on NGPL.  The recovery rating on the senior
secured debt is '3', indicating S&P's expectation for meaningful
(50% to 70%) in the event of a payment default.

"The negative outlook reflects our expectation that NGPL's
financial measures will remain weak through the remainder of 2013
as well as 2014 because transportation and storage rates have been
lower than expected through the second quarter of 2013," said
Standard & Poor's credit analyst Michael Ferguson.

Excess natural gas supplies in the Mid-Continent region have
effectively eliminated meaningful price differentials that would
result in more reliable and robust cash flow, and, consequently,
leverage has increased while covenant cushions have continued to
decrease.

Standard & Poor's bases its ratings on NGPL on the company's
stand-alone credit quality.  The corporate credit rating reflects
NGPL's business profile, which S&P considers "satisfactory",
offset by its financial risk profile, which S&P considers "highly
leveraged" under its criteria.

The negative rating outlook reflects S&P's expectation that NGPL's
debt/EBITDA and EBITDA/interest coverage will be more than 9x and
about 1.5x, respectively, and its liquidity profile could weaken
further in 2013 and during the early part of 2014.

Although the current ratings take into account S&P's assessment of
the reduced transportation rates and low natural gas prices, it
could lower the ratings if market conditions, key credit measures,
and the liquidity profile notably deteriorate.  Specifically,
prolonged EBITDA interest coverage of less than 1.25x and debt to
EBITDA sustained above 9.2x could warrant a lower rating.  A
revision of the liquidity descriptor to "weak" (from "less than
adequate") would also result in a lower the rating.

S&P do not expect to raise the rating unless it sees a material
change in the company's financial risk profile, such that the
company sustains debt to EBITDA at less than 7.5x and EBITDA
interest coverage of at least 1.75x, which it could achieve by
reducing debt or improving EBITDA levels; however S&P don't
believe this is likely during the next three years.

PACIFICA PARK: Failed to Prevail in Appeal From Case Dismissal
--------------------------------------------------------------
Pacifica Park Apartments, LLC, appealed from a bankruptcy court
order granting U.S. Bank N.A.'s motion for relief from automatic
stay, denying Pacifica Park's motion for authority to use cash
collateral, and granting the bank's motion to dismiss the
bankruptcy case.

Pacifica Park Apartments filed a Chapter 11 bankruptcy petition on
December 6, 2012.  As part of the filing, it listed as an asset an
interest in the Citrus Plaza Shopping Center in Exeter,
California.  U.S. Bank is a secured creditor with an interest in
the Property, who made a motion for relief from the automatic stay
to allow foreclosure on the Property. Bankruptcy Judge Richard Lee
granted U.S. Bank's motion to use cash collateral on Jan. 17,
2013.  He also dismissed the entire case on Jan. 31, 2013.

In a Sept. 20, 2013 Order, Senior District Judge Anthony W. Ishii
dismissed the appeal on the Bankruptcy Court's decision.  The
judge said Pacifica Park failed to timely file an appeal from the
dismissal order or meet any of the requirements for an extension
of the filing period.

PICCADILLY RESTAURANTS: Confirmation Hearing to Be Held Jan. 13-14
------------------------------------------------------------------
At a hearing held on Oct. 29, 2013, the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the Western District of Louisiana approved the disclosure
statement filed by Atalaya and the Official Committee of Unsecured
Creditors explaining the Plan Proponents' Joint Plan for
Piccadilly Restaurants, LLC, et al.  The Confirmation hearing will
be held on Jan. 13, and Jan. 14, 2014, commencing at 9:00 a.m.

Yucaipa Corporate Initiatives Fund I, L.P., objected to approval
of the disclosure statement.

Yucaipa holds 100% of the ownership interests in debtor Piccadilly
Investments, LLC.  Piccadilly Investments in turn owns 100% of the
equity in the other two debtors, Piccadilly Restaurants, LLC and
Piccadilly Food Service, LLC.

                       Confirmation Issues

Atalaya entities -- Administrative LLC, Atalaya Funding II, LP,
Atalaya Special Opportunities Fund IV, LP (Tranche B), and Atalaya
Special Opportunities Fund (Cayman) IV, LP (Tranche B) -- asked
the Court to overrule Yucaipa's objection to approval of the
Disclosure Statement.

Atalaya said that Yucaipa's objection raises primarily
confirmation issues that relate to the Plan Proponents' treatment
of Yucaipa's equity interest under the Joint Plan.  In addition,
Atalaya relates that Yucaipa's objection has no merit.

"Indeed, given the nature of Yucaipa's arguments, it is doubtful
that any amount of information included within a disclosure
statement would affect Yucaipa's decision regarding the proposed
plan.  Nevertheless, as detailed below, the Plan Proponents have
agreed to modify, and/or have highlighted specific provisions of
the disclosure statement that resolve all of Yucaipa's true
disclosure statement objections.  Specifically, the Plan
Proponents:

   1. Have provided financial projections and a liquidation
      analysis (prior to Yucaipa's objection being filed);

   2. Have agreed to include language in the disclosure statement
      setting forth Yucaipa's position regarding valuation and
      confirmability;

   3. Have agreed to modify the disclosure statement to provide
      further information regarding the rationale for settlement
      of the adversary pending between the Plan Proponents; and

   4. Have agreed to describe Yucaipa's contentions regarding
      Atalaya's secured claims."

Atalaya explains: "As an initial matter, Yucaipa lacks standing to
raise a disclosure statement objection here.  Because Yucaipa's
equity interest will be cancelled under the Joint Plan, Yucaipa
will be deemed to have rejected the Joint Plan.  Accordingly, no
amount of additional information in the Disclosure Statement will
"affect its class" or change Yucaipa's vote.

"Further, the weight of Yucaipa's objection must be measured
against its obvious motivation in the case -- to delay
confirmation of any plan that Yucaipa does not support.  Yucaipa
withdrew its plan after it was clear no creditors supported its
failed reorganization efforts.  Faced with a plan now that
recognizes the economic reality of these cases, Yucaipa's
goal is not to improve the Disclosure Statement, but rather to
delay the confirmation process.  As a result, Yucaipa's objections
should be properly addressed at confirmation, not a disclosure
statement hearing.

"Yucaipa's first objection asserts that the Disclosure Statement
does not have appropriate disclosures regarding financial
projections and a liquidation analysis.  As noted, the Plan
Proponents filed detailed financial projections and a liquidation
analysis -- prior to Yucaipa's objection being filed -- thereby
mooting this objection.

"Yucaipa asserts next that the Disclosure Statement does not
contain "valuation information" to support Atalaya's conversion of
debt to equity and the cancellation of Yucaipa's equity.  In the
first place, the financial projections and liquidation analysis
provided by the Plan Proponents contain more than sufficient
information to allow Yucaipa to assess value here.  Moreover,
while valuation will be relevant to confirmation of the Joint
Plan, to require the Plan Proponents to establish evidence of
valuation in a disclosure statement would effectively require the
Plan Proponents to establish, in advance, their case for "cram
down" of Yucaipa's claim.  That is not what is contemplated by the
Bankruptcy Code.

"Yucaipa next asserts that the Disclosure Statement does not
adequately describe the potential value conferred on the estate by
resolution of an adversary proceeding filed by the Committee
against Atalaya (the "Atalaya Adversary"), which will be settled
by virtue of confirmation of the Joint Plan.  Yucaipa also argues
that the Debtors' alleged dispute regarding the outstanding letter
of credit balance and certain fees and interest owed to Atalaya
are somehow issues that need further disclosure.  But these
arguments have no merit.  In the first place, the Plan Proponents
believe the fact that Atalaya has agreed to turn over proceeds of
the BP Tort Claim to unsecured creditors, and has agreed to
convert $9 million of secured debt to equity in order to
facilitate payment to unsecured creditors, is more than sufficient
justification for settlement of the very limited lien challenges
in the Atalaya Adversary.  In any event, resolution of the Atalaya
Adversary would have no impact on Yucaipa's position as an
equityholder of the Debtors.  The Committee's lien challenge in
the Atalaya Adversary is limited, and even if the Committee were
successful, Atalaya would still maintain a lien on substantially
all of the Debtors' assets and would be still be entitled to
payment ahead of Yucaipa on all of its outstanding claims.

"Yucaipa also contends that the Disclosure Statement should more
adequately describe the Debtors' "dispute" over Atalaya's secured
claim as it relates to the outstanding letter of credit balance
and certain interest and fees.  First, there is no "dispute" over
the letter of credit or interest and fees outside of the Atalaya
Adversary.  The Debtors filed no adversary proceeding or other
action to dispute any claims of Atalaya.  But even if the Debtors
had raised such a dispute, the fact that Atalaya is converting
$9 million of debt to equity under the Joint Plan more than
offsets any alleged dispute.

"Finally, Yucaipa argues that the Disclosure Statement should
include a "calculation" of post-petition interest for Atalaya's
claims.  Providing such a calculation will have no impact on
creditor votes on the plan, as Atalaya's accrued interest will
become principal amounts in the restructured notes, and principal
payments are not scheduled to be made until unsecured creditors
are paid in full.  That said, Atalaya will provide Yucaipa with
such calculation in accordance with discovery exchanged between
the parties in advance of the confirmation hearing.

"Yucaipa then argues that the Joint Plan is "patently
unconfirmable" and should not be distributed to creditors because
Atalaya is receiving more than 100% of its claim under the Joint
Plan.  That argument misstates both the facts and applicable law.
First, Yucaipa's calculation of Atalaya's claims is incorrect.
. . . the total amount of Atalaya debt under the Joint Plan is
approximately $35.3 million, not $28.1 million as alleged by
Yucaipa.  In exchange for more than $35 million in secured claims,
Atalaya has agreed to convert approximately $9 million to equity,
and has agreed to payment of interest only on its remaining debt
until unsecured creditors are paid in full.  Such treatment could
hardly be described as inequitable.  Second, Yucaipa's allegation
that Atalaya has improperly included the undrawn letter of credit
balance of $2.9 million in the Term A Note ignores the language of
the Joint Plan (as described in the Disclosure Statement), which
clearly states:

    provided, however, that the aggregate principal amount of the
    Term A Note shall be reduced by any corresponding reduction in
    the existing letter of credit balance.

"Finally, Yucaipa's argument that the Disclosure Statement should
not be approved because it describes a plan that is unconfirmable
simply misstates the law.  Courts are clear that confirmation
objections are not appropriately addressed in the context of
approval of a disclosure statement."

Thus, Atalaya asks that the Court deny Yucaipa's objection,
enter an order approving the Disclosure Statement and grant
Atalaya such other and further relief as is just and equitable.

                Yucaipa's Objection to Plan Outline

Yucaipa Corporate Initiatives Fund I, L.P., in its objection to
the approval of the Disclosure Statement, explains: "The Atalaya
Disclosure Statement should not be approved because it contains
inadequate information that prevents stakeholders from thoroughly
evaluating material aspects of the Atalaya Plan and the Atalaya
Plan is patently unconfirmable.

"The Atalaya Plan provides Atalaya with a recovery that far
exceeds its claim.  In addition to over $25 million of secured
debt, Atalaya will convert $9 million of debt for 100% of the
equity of a solvent company.  The Atalaya Disclosure Statement
provides no justification for this unfair treatment.  The
Proponents must provide a valuation analysis and financial
projections to show that the Plan is fair and equitable and
otherwise consistent with the Bankruptcy Code.

"Also missing from the Disclosure Statement is support for
Atalaya's asserted face value of its secured claim, $3.9 million
of which cannot be reconciled by the Debtors.  And the Atalaya
Disclosure Statement does not include a liquidation analysis or
financial projections to support the Atalaya Plan structure.

"In short, the information in the Atalaya Disclosure Statement is
deficient on many fronts that are critical to evaluating the most
important aspects of the Atalaya Plan -- fair and equitable
recoveries, feasibility, and whether it is in the best interests
of creditors.  The Debtors' stakeholders simply cannot evaluate
the plan effectively without substantially more information
in the Atalaya Disclosure Statement."

Yucaipa is both the majority holder of equity interests in PI and
a general unsecured creditor on account of its Management Services
Fee Claim, which has been scheduled by the Debtors in the amount
of $452,791.18.

                        The Chapter 11 Plan

As reported in the TCR on Nov. 1, 2013, Atalaya and the statutory
committee of unsecured creditors of Piccadilly Restaurants, LLC,
et al., filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Western
District of Louisiana on Sept. 27, 2013, a Joint Chapter 11 Plan
for the Debtors and a disclosure statement.

Under the Plan proposed by Atalaya and the Official Committee of
Unsecured Creditors, on or after the Effective Date, the Debtors
will continue to exist as the Reorganized Debtors.  Except as
otherwise provided in the Joint Plan, all property of the Debtors'
Estates, and any property acquired by the Debtors or Reorganized
Debtors under the Joint Plan, will re-vest in the applicable
Reorganized Debtor, free and clear of all claims, liens, charges,
and other encumbrances created prior to the Effective Date.

Plan for the Debtors is available at:

QUIGLEY CO: Attorneys' Final Fee Applications Allowed
-----------------------------------------------------
Judge Stuart M. Bernstein of the United States Bankruptcy Court
for the Southern District of New York issued an order overruling
the objections raised by the U.S. Trustee to the final fee
applications submitted by Schulte Roth & Zabel LLP, as attorneys
for debtor Quigley Company, Inc.; Togut, Segal & Segal LLP, as
attorneys for Albert Togut in his capacity as legal representative
for future asbestos personal injury claimants; and Caplin &
Drysdale, Chartered, as attorneys for the Official Committee of
Unsecured Creditors.

The following table summarizes the final applications that were
submitted by the professionals:

   Applicant                Fees      Expenses
   ---------            -----------   --------
   Schulte              $21,080,652   $519,770
   Caplin                $5,406,992   $215,502
   The Togut Firm        $3,651,454    $48,133

The U.S. Trustee raised the question on whether the counsel and
other professionals are entitled to compensation for the work they
did in proposing or supporting a plan that failed, inter alia, for
lack of good faith.

Judge Bernstein allowed the final fee applications filed by the
three firms, although he asked that Caplin's fees be reduced by
$20,600.

In supporting his decision, Judge Bernstein held that "Schulte and
the Togut Firm established the presumptive reasonableness of their
fee requests through the twenty-six interim applications, and with
a few exceptions, so did Caplin.  These applications detailed the
services that each rendered in connection with the case.  The time
entries adequately detail what each firm did, when it did it and
how long it took to do.  All of the services were rendered in the
case, and on their face, were reasonable and necessary to the
administration of the case.  Furthermore, Schulte and the Togut
Firm certified in accordance with the Court's Amended Guidelines,
that the fees and disbursements they sought were billed at rates
and in accordance with practices customarily employed and
generally accepted by their applicant's clients."

Judge Bernstein rejected the U.S. Trustee's argument that
Schulte's services rendered in connection with the promulgation
and prosecution of the Fourth Plan would not have been undertaken
by a reasonable attorney on behalf of its client although Quigley
faced a difficult fight and the outcome was in doubt.  This
conclusion follows even more strongly in the case of Caplin and
the Togut Firm who did not propose the Fourth Plan but ultimately
supported it, Judge Bernstein said.

                         About Quigley Co.

Quigley Co. was acquired by Pfizer in 1968 and sold small amounts
of products containing asbestos until the early 1970s.  In
September 2004, Pfizer and Quigley took steps that were intended
to resolve all pending and future claims against the Company and
Quigley in which the claimants allege personal injury from
exposure to Quigley products containing asbestos, silica or mixed
dust. Quigley filed for bankruptcy in 2004 and has a Chapter 11
plan and a settlement with Chrysler.

Quigley filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection (Bankr.
S.D.N.Y. Case No. 04-15739) on Sept. 3, 2004, to implement a
proposed global resolution of all pending and future asbestos-
related personal injury liabilities.

Lawrence V. Gelber, Esq., and Michael L. Cook, Esq., at Schulte
Roth & Zabel LLP, represent the Debtor in its restructuring
efforts.  Elihu Inselbuch Esq., at Caplin & Drysdale, Chartered,
represents the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors.  When
the Debtor filed for protection from its creditors, it disclosed
$155,187,000 in total assets and $141,933,000 in total debts.

In April 2011, the bankruptcy judge approved a plan-support
agreement with Pfizer and an ad hoc committee representing 30,000
asbestos claimants.

A May 20, 2011 opinion by District Judge Richard Holwell concluded
that Pfizer was directly liable for some asbestos claims arising
from products sold by its now non-operating subsidiary Quigley.
The district court ruling was upheld in the appeals court.

In August 2013, the U.S. District Court reaffirmed the June 28,
2013 U.S. Bankruptcy Court order confirming Quigley's Chapter 11
Plan of Reorganization.  Because this proceeding involved
asbestos-related litigation, both Bankruptcy and District Court
approval was required.


R.R. DONNELLEY: S&P Lowers CCR to 'BB-' on New Debt Issuance
------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it lowered its
corporate credit rating on Chicago-based print company R.R.
Donnelley & Sons Co. to 'BB-' from 'BB'.  The outlook is stable.

At the same time, S&P lowered its issue-level rating on the
company's senior secured debt to 'BB+' from 'BBB-'.  The recovery
rating on this debt remains '1', indicating S&P's expectation for
very high (90%-100%) recovery in the event of a payment default.

S&P also lowered its issue-level rating on the company's senior
unsecured debt to 'BB-' from 'BB'.  The recovery rating on this
debt remains '4', indicating average (30%-50%) recovery in the
event of a payment default.

In addition, S&P is assigning the company's proposed $350 million
senior unsecured notes due 2023 its 'BB-' issue-level rating, with
a recovery rating of '4' (30%-50% recovery expectation).

The downgrade follows Donnelley's announcement that it is issuing
$350 million notes due 2023.  S&P views the addition of longer-
term permanent debt as inconsistent with the company's strategy to
reduce outstanding debt.  S&P previously assumed that Donnelley
would be able to finance both the proposed Consolidated Graphics
acquisition and the April 2014 $258 million maturity with cash on
hand and that the company would address any short-term funding
needs via the currently undrawn $1.1 billion credit facility.

S&P's rating on Donnelley reflects its "fair" business risk
profile of the company, supported by Donnelley's market position
as the largest company in the printing industry, amid competitive
and long-term structural pressures.  S&P's rating also reflects
its view of the company's financial risk profile as aggressive,
marked by elevated leverage that S&P expects will decline only
gradually.  S&P assess the company's management and governance as
"fair."

S&P's business risk profile assessment reflects the company's
scale and competitive strengths in a fragmented industry, although
pressured by the industry's cyclicality, overcapacity, and intense
service and pricing competition.  S&P believes that these trends
will cause Donnelley's organic revenue in its traditional printing
business to continue to decline at a low-single-digit percent pace
over time.

The printing industry has steadily lost ground to electronic
distribution of content and online advertising.  As a result, it
has been afflicted by overcapacity, chronic pricing pressure, and
the need to continuously take out costs.  Donnelley's size confers
important efficiencies including the capacity to provide one-stop
service to clients, the ability to invest in leading technology,
and the ability to cope with pricing pressure more successfully
than many of its competitors.  Nevertheless, several of its
important end markets, notably the magazine, retail inserts,
directory, and book businesses, are subject to long-term adverse
fundamentals as well as general economic cyclicality.  Industry
volume shrinkage is likely to continue to necessitate capacity
downsizing and restructuring charges.  Donnelley has sought to
counter these trends by diversifying into services-related
businesses that are not under secular pressure.  It remains
unclear whether growth in these businesses will offset the secular
declines plaguing the traditional printing business.

The service segment remains a small piece of consolidated
operations as it comprises just 17% of consolidated revenues, but
it has grown both organically and through acquisitions.  The
acquisitions have been of lower-margin businesses, which will
reduce the overall EBITDA margin as the segment grows, and to some
degree, keep in place fixed overhead that might otherwise be
subject to large-scale rationalization.

"We regard Donnelley's financial risk as aggressive.  Pro forma
for the proposed debt issuance and acquisition of Consolidated
Graphics, Inc., Donnelley's leverage (debt adjusted primarily for
pension and lease obligations and EBITDA including restructuring
charges) was 4.0x for the 12 months ended Sept. 30, 2013.
Donnelley has accomplished relatively modest debt reduction in the
last two years.  While management intends to reduce leverage over
the coming several years, we expect deleveraging to proceed
slowly, due to revenue, EBITDA, and discretionary cash flow
declines that we expect in 2014 and 2015, absent meaningful
acquisition contributions or other unexpected strategic moves that
could supplement cash flow. In addition, the recent rise in
interest rates will reduce their underfunded pension obligation,
which should, in turn, reduce our pension adjustment to debt
beginning in 2014," S&P said.

"Our base-case scenario is consistent with Standard & Poor's
economic forecast of 1.6% U.S. GDP growth in 2013 and 2.5% in
2014.  We expect that full-year 2013 revenue will increase about
1%, driven by easy comparisons in the second half of 2012 and
temporary stabilization, in our view, of a few traditional print
product lines.  Still, we expect the adjusted EBITDA margin will
decrease to under 11% in 2013 from 11.4% in 2012.  Further, we
expect 2014 revenue to decline about 1%, consistent with our view
that the print industry is in long-term secular decline.  We
expect the EBITDA margin to tighten further to about 10.5% in 2014
due to the pricing pressures in the products segment," S&P added.

Based on S&P's criteria, it regards Donnelley's liquidity as
"adequate."  S&P's assessment of the liquidity profile
incorporates the following expectations, factors, and assumptions:

   -- S&P expects that sources of liquidity, including cash and
      access to the revolving credit facility, will exceed uses by
      2.2x over the next 12-18 months.

   -- S&P expects that net sources of liquidity would remain
      positive even if EBITDA were to decline 15% to 20%.

   -- Because of the company's discretionary cash flow generating
      ability, S&P believes it could absorb low-probability, high-
      impact events without the need for refinancing.

   -- S&P expects that the company will be able to maintain
      sufficient covenant headroom so that EBITDA could decline by
      about 15% to 20% and the company would still have a 15%
      cushion of compliance with covenant tests.

   -- S&P believes the company has good relationships with its
      banks.

   -- S&P views current financial risk management as aggressive.

Sources of liquidity consist of $700 million in cash expected on
the balance sheet as of Dec. 31, 2013, an undrawn $1.15 billion
revolving credit facility due 2017, $350 million from the 2023
notes issuance, and about $700 million in funds from operations in
2014.  Uses include S&P's expectation for about $440 million for
the acquisition of Consolidated Graphics Inc., $225 million in
capital expenditures in 2014, dividend payments of about
$200 million in 2014, and upcoming debt maturities of $258 million
in 2014 and $200 million in 2015.

Covenants include a 3.75x total leverage ratio and a 3x interest
coverage covenant.  S&P expects the company to maintain a 15%
cushion with financial covenants.  As of June 30, 2013, Donnelley
had about a 28% cushion from the maximum leverage ratio of 3.75x,
its most restrictive covenant.

For the latest recovery analysis, see Standard & Poor's recovery
report on Donnelley, to be published on RatingsDirect following
the release of this report.

The stable outlook reflects S&P's expectation that leverage will
remain below 4.5x over the intermediate term.  S&P expects that
the secular trends facing the printing sector will neither abate
nor worsen.  Thus, S&P expects revenue and EBITDA will decline
organically at a low-single-digit percentage rate and that the
EBITDA margin will contract about 25 to 50 basis points per year.
S&P could lower the rating if leverage increases above 4.5x.

S&P could raise the rating if it become convinced that leverage
will fall and remain well below 3.75x on a sustainable basis and
the margin deterioration trend reverses.  However, if secular
trends worsen, specifically if revenue declines accelerated to 5%
annually, or if the EBITDA margin falls below 10%, S&P will likely
reassess its leverage threshold for the current rating.

                       Downgraded Again

Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that printer R.R. Donnelley & Sons Co. enjoyed an
investment grade rating until May 2011, when it was downgraded to
the highest junk ratings by both Moody's Investors Service and
Standard & Poor's.

According to the report, on top of downgrades last year, S&P
lowered the corporate grade to BB- this week as a consequence of
R.R. Donnelley's issuance of another $350 million in debt. S&P
said the new bonds are "inconsistent with the company's strategy
to reduce outstanding debt."

S&P is giving the new obligation a rating of BB-, accompanied by a
guess that the debt holders will recover as much as 50 percent if
there is a payment default.

The rating company said it had been assuming Chicago-based R.R.
Donnelley would use an undrawn $1.1 billion revolving credit to
cover both an acquisition and a $258 million debt maturity in
April.

Moody's and S&P both dropped the company to junk in May 2011 when
it announced a repurchase of as much as $1 billion in stock
through December 2012.

R.R. Donnelley fell 4 percent to $17.98 on Nov. 6 in Nasdaq Stock
Market trading. The shares reached a three-year high of $21.34 on
May 31, 2011, and a low of $8.58 on Dec. 17.

In the first three quarters this year, net income totaled $107.2
million on net sales of $7.73 billion.

R.R. Donnelley isn't to be confused with yellow page publisher
R.H. Donnelley Corp., which implemented a Chapter 11
reorganization plan in February 2010. Renamed Dex One Corp., that
company merged this year with SuperMedia Inc. by prepackaged
confirmation plans for both companies that were confirmed in six
weeks.


REGIONAL EMPLOYERS: Independent Fiduciary Appointed for Trust
-------------------------------------------------------------
District Judge Mary McLaughlin issued a limited injunction order
on Sept. 16, 2013, appointing an independent fiduciary to
administer the plans, employer arrangements, and two trusts at
issue -- Single Employer Welfare Benefit Plan Trust ("SEWBPT") and
Regional Employers Assurance League Voluntary Employees'
Beneficiary Association Trust ("REAL VEBA").  The independent
fiduciary was to report back to the Court by Oct. 28, with respect
to its inventory of all assets of REAL VEBA, SEWBPT, and its
constituent employer-level plans or arrangements.

The Court saw the need to make the appointment in light of recent
developments, bankruptcy filings, and correspondence from the
Koresko defendants attempting to get payments from plan
beneficiaries, in getting control of the dispersed trust assets
and determining the state of those assets.  The move is related to
DOL's March 9, 2009 Complaint, alleging that Defendants John
Koresko, Jeanne Bonney, PennMont Benefit Services, Inc.
("PennMont"), Koresko Law Firm ("KLF"), Koresko and Associates,
P.C. ("KAPC"), Penn Public Trust ("PPT") and Community Trust Co.
(the "Koresko Defendants") were fiduciaries to ERISA-covered
employer-level plans.  The DOL further alleged that these
fiduciaries had violated ERISA by, among other things,
transferring death benefits outside the trust holding the plans'
assets.

On July 25, 2013, a suggestion of bankruptcy was filed by REAL
VEBA, SEWBPT, PPT, PennMont, KAPC, and KLP in several cases
related to this death benefits arrangement.  There were six
separate Chapter 11 petitions filed in the bankruptcy court on
behalf of REAL VEBA (No. 13-16440), SEWBPT (No. 13-16441), PPT
(No. 13-16443), PennMont (No. 13-16444), KAPC (No. 13-16445), and
KLP (No. 13-16446). The docket numbers used to describe the
bankruptcy proceedings originate from In re Regional Employers
Assurance Leagues Voluntary Employees' Beneficiary Association
Trust, No. 13-16440 (E.D. Pa. Bankr.).

            About Regional Employers Assurance Leagues
        Voluntary Employees' Beneficiary Association Trust

Regional Employers Assurance Leagues Voluntary Employees'
Beneficiary Association Trust filed a Chapter 11 petition (Bankr.
E.D. Pa. Case No. 13-16440) on July 23, 2013.  Judge Jean K.
FitzSimon presides over the case.  The Debtor estimated assets at
$50 million to $100 million and debts at $1 million to $10
million.  The petition was signed by John J. Koresko, V, director
of trustee and administrator.

In September, the Pennsylvania Bankruptcy Court entered an order
dismissing Real VEBA's Chapter 11 case.  The dismissal came after
the U.S. Trustee called for the dismissal of the case, arguing,
among other things, that the Debtor cannot reorganize and that its
bankruptcy has no business purpose.  According to the U.S.
Trustee, the sole purpose of the filing for bankruptcy relief was
an attempt to stay a police powers action brought by the U.S.
Department of Labor, hence, the filing was not commenced in good
faith.

On Oct. 1, 2013, creditors holding $1.19 million in claims filed
an involuntary petition under Chapter 11 against Regional
Employers Assurance Leagues Voluntary Employees' Beneficiary
Association Trust, d/b/a Real VEBA Trust (Case No. 13-05987,
Bankr. M.D. Fla.).  The proposed Debtor is represented by Scott
Alan Orth, Esq., at LAW OFFICES OF SCOTT ALAN ORTH PA, in
Hollywood, Florida.  The Petitioners are represented by Brett A
Mearkle, Esq., at LAW OFFICE OF BRETT A. MEARKLE, in Jacksonville,
Florida.

Later that month, Real VEBA Trust notified the Bankruptcy Court
for the Middle District of Florida, Jacksonville Division, of its
consent of an entry of the order for relief in the involuntary
Chapter 11 case.


RESIDENTIAL CAPITAL: Resolves Most Technical Plan Objections
------------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that when Residential Capital LLC arrives in bankruptcy
court Nov. 19 for a confirmation hearing on its reorganization
plan, about 30 objections will have been winnowed down to those
from second-lien lenders who say they are entitled to payment in
full.

In a report to the judge this week, the bankrupt mortgage-
servicing unit of Ally Financial Inc. laid out 27 objections that
were resolved consensually through modifications to technical
provisions in the plan.  In addition to the junior lenders'
complaints, there are a dozen homeowners who contend the plan
doesn't address their claims properly.

According to the report, the U.S. Trustee still isn't on board
entirely with the plan. As she frequently does, the Justice
Department's bankruptcy watchdog says releases to non-bankrupt
third parties are being given without sufficient justification.

ResCap nonetheless said it hopes to resolve the U.S. Trustee's
objections before the confirmation hearing. Other objections from
the government are being settled, ResCap said.

In ResCap's words, the plan has "overwhelming support from the
vast majority of creditors." The plan is financed in part by a
$2.1 billion settlement contribution from Ally.

An ad hoc group holding $714 million in 9.625 percent junior notes
oppose the plan, saying they are entitled to payment in full with
interest.

Disclosure materials told holders of ResCap's $2.15 billion in
general unsecured claims to expect a 36.3 percent recovery.
Unsecured creditors with $2 billion in claims against the so-
called GMACM companies are predicted to get 30.1 percent.

The $1.1 billion in third-lien 9.625 percent secured notes due in
2015 last traded on Nov. 5 for 109.25 cents on the dollar,
according to Trace, the bond-price reporting system of the
Financial Industry Regulatory Authority. In January, the bonds
sold for 107 cents.

The $473.4 million of ResCap senior unsecured notes due in April
2013 last traded on Nov. 4 for 36.719 cents on the dollar, a 56
percent increase since Dec. 19, according to Trace.

REVSTONE INDUSTRIES: Seeking Consensual Plan With Committee
-----------------------------------------------------------
Debtor Revstone Industries LLC and its official committee of
unsecured creditors have proposed competing Chapter 11 plans for
the Debtor.

Revstone doesn't want another party to propose another bankruptcy-
exit plan.  Accordingly, Revstone asks the Court to extend as to
all parties except for the Committee, its exclusive filing period
through and including Jan. 31, 2014, and its exclusive
solicitation period through March 31, 2014.  This is the third
request by the Debtors for an extension.

Revstone and the Committee have engaged in negotiations related to
the competing plans of reorganization, according to Revstone.  The
Debtor says that its goal in these negotiations is to develop a
single, confirmable plan acceptable to both parties.  The parties
have adjourned their requests for a hearing to approve their
disclosure statements on several previous occasions.  The hearing
to seek approval of both disclosure statements is currently
scheduled for Nov. 13, 2013.

A hearing on the proposed exclusivity extension is slated for Dec.
11, 2013, at 10:00 a.m.  Objections are due Dec. 4, 2013 at 4:00
p.m.

RURAL/METRO CORP: Plan Scheduled for Dec. 16 Confirmation
---------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that for Rural/Metro Corp., winning approval of disclosure
materials and scheduling a confirmation hearing was easy once the
official creditors' committee came on board with the plan.

According to the report, the bankruptcy court in Delaware approved
the disclosure statement on Nov. 5. It explains the Chapter 11
plan scheduled for approval at a Dec. 16 confirmation hearing.

The plan for the Scottsdale, Arizona-based provider of emergency
and non-emergency medical transportation was largely worked out
before the Chapter 11 filing in early August.

The plan calls for unsecured noteholders with $312.2 million in
claims to acquire all of the preferred stock and 70 percent of the
common stock in return for a $135 million equity contribution
through a rights offering.

On Nov. 6, buyers were offering to purchase the $200 million in
10.125 percent senior unsecured notes for 57.375 cents on the
dollar, according to Trace, the bond-price reporting system of the
Financial Industry Regulatory Authority. The offering price for

SAND SPRING: Reorganization Plan Declared Effective
---------------------------------------------------
Sand Spring Capital III, LLC, et al., notified the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the District of Delaware that the effective date of its
Fourth Amended Joint Plan of Reorganization occurred on Oct. 21,
2013.

On Sept. 18, 2013, the Court entered an order confirming the Plan.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Oct. 22, 2013, the
Debtors filed a Memorandum of Law in support of confirmation of
the Debtors' Fourth Amended Joint Plan which provides that the
Plan is the result of extensive, arm's-length negotiations among
the Debtors and certain of the key parties-in-interest in the
cases, including the Committee of Equity Security Holders, Cantor
Group and numerous investors, the group commonly referred to as
the Louisiana Plaintiffs.  The efforts by all parties to the
negotiations have resulted in the execution of two extensive
settlement agreements that have paved the way for a consensual
plan process.

The resulting Plan contemplates that all Secured, Priority,
Administrative, and General Unsecured Claims will be paid in full
in cash on or as soon as reasonably practicable following the
Effective Date.  Thus, those Classes of Claims are unimpaired.  In
contrast, Independent Fiduciary Indemnification Claims, Cantor
Indemnification Claims and Interests are impaired under the Plan,
and will receive this treatment:

   i) as set forth in the Plan, each Holder of an Allowed
Independent Fiduciary Indemnification Claim will receive a release
from all Claims and Causes of Action that any of the Debtors may
have;

  ii) Cantor Indemnification Claims will be satisfied from the
Indemnification Reserve. Cantor Indemnification Claims will be
deemed Allowed Claims for purposes of the Plan, and Cantor has
agreed that it will accept any award entered in the New York
Litigation as the recovery on such Allowed Claims;

iii) the Reorganized Funds will receive, subject to the
resolution of certain disputed Claims, their Ratable Portion of
the Cantor Derivative Claim Settlement Amount; and

  iv) investors will receive their Ratable Portion of the
Reorganized Fund Interests on the Cantor Chapter 11 Settlement
Effective Date, and, in the event that they execute a Direct Claim
Release, their Ratable Portion of the Cantor Direct Claim
Settlement Amount.

On Aug. 30, the Debtors filed a plan supplement to their Third
Amended Joint Plan of Reorganization.

                        About Sand Spring

Nine funds advised by Commonwealth Advisors Inc. of Baton Rouge,
Louisiana, sought Chapter 11 protection on Oct. 25, 2011, after
failing to work out a reorganization plan acceptable to all
investors.  Lead Debtor is Sand Spring Capital III, LLC (Bankr. D.
Del. Case No. 11-13393).

Robert S. Brady, Esq., Kenneth J. Enos, Esq., and Michael R.
Nestor, Esq., at Young, Conaway, Stargatt & Taylor, in Wilmington,
Delaware, serve as counsel to the Debtors.  Epiq Bankruptcy
Solutions LLC serves as claims and notice agent.

The funds were formed from 2005 to 2007 under Walter Morales,
president and chief investment manager, and attracted 456
investors, according to filings in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in
Wilmington, Delaware.  Last year, investors filed class-action
and derivative suits alleging mismanagement, misrepresentation,
and breach of fiduciary duty.

According to Bloomberg News, the U.S. Securities and Exchange
Commission initiated a formal investigation in July 2009.  The
funds were unable or unwilling to satisfy investors' redemption
demands, which would have required liquidation of "their
holdings in an illiquid market and at depressed prices."

The funds, Commonwealth and Morales negotiated a prepackaged
Chapter 11 plan, which was accepted by all classes of creditors
except one.  Because third-party contributions required unanimous
approval, the funds said they filed in Chapter 11 so they could
have "further discussions with their investors with the oversight
of this court."

SPIG INDUSTRY: U.S. Trustee Unable to Form Creditors Committee
--------------------------------------------------------------
Judy A. Robbins, U.S. Trustee for Region 4, notified the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of Virginia that she was
unable to appoint an official committee of unsecured creditors in
the Chapter 11 case of SPIG Industry, LLC.

The U.S. Trustee explained that the number of persons eligible or
willing to serve on such a committee is presently insufficient to
form an unsecured creditors committee.

The U.S. Trustee will appoint an unsecured creditors committee
upon the request of an adequate number of unsecured creditors.

                     About SPIG Industry, LLC

SPIG Industry, LLC, filed a Chapter 11 petition (Bankr. W.D. Va.
Case No. 13-71469) on Sept. 11, 2013.  The Debtor is represented
by Robert Copeland, Esq., at Copeland Law Firm, P.C., in Abingdon,
Virginia.


SPIG INDUSTRY: Hearing on Bid to Employ Counsel Stayed
------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of Virginia
stayed the hearing to consider SPIG Industry LLC's request to
employ Copeland Law Firm, P.C. as its counsel.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Oct. 23, 2013,
Judy A. Robbins, U.S. Trustee for Region 4, asked the Court to
stay the hearing on the Debtor's motion to employ counsel until
the Department of Justice attorneys are permitted to resume their
usual civil litigation functions.

According to the Trustee, he is a Justice Department official.  On
Sept. 30, 2013, the appropriations act that had been funding the
Department of Justice expired and appropriations to the Department
lapsed.  The Department does not know when funding will be
restored by Congress.

The Trustee noted that absent an appropriation, Department of
Justice attorneys and staff, including the U.S. Trustee's staff,
are prohibited from working, even on a voluntary basis, except in
very limited circumstances, including "emergencies involving the
safety of human life or the protection of property.

                 Objection on Copeland Employment

The U.S. Trustee is objecting to the proposed employment of Robert
T. Copeland, Esq., a member of the firm.  The U.S. Trustee said
Mr. Copeland has established a pattern of, among other things,
taking actions and providing assistance to clients that brings
disrepute upon the bankruptcy system; advising clients regarding
actions that hinder, delay, or defraud creditors and trustees;
failing to properly assist clients in filing accurate documents,
and failing to properly prosecute their cases; all in violation of
certain applicable ethical rules.  Additionally, Copeland's has
demonstrated an inability to comply with the duties imposed upon
him as counsel.

As reported in the TCR on Sept. 24, 2013, the Debtor proposes to
pay Mr. Copeland $300 per hour for his services.  He will be
assisted by paralegals to be paid $75 per hour.

Mr. Copeland has assured the Court that the firm is a
"disinterested person" as the term is defined in Section 101(14)
of the Bankruptcy Code and does not represent any interest adverse
to the Debtor and its estate.  The firm has received an advance
fee in the amount of $7,700, plus costs of $1,213 for the filing
fee on Sept. 11, 2013.  Of the advance fee, $1,162 have been
charged and paid for prepetition services.

SPIN HOLDCO: S&P Lowers Rating on First Lien Debt to 'B'
--------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services affirmed its 'B' corporate
credit rating on Plainview, N.Y.-based Spin Holdco Inc. (doing
business as CSC ServiceWorks).  The outlook is stable.

At the same time, S&P lowered its issue level rating on Spin
Holdco's first-lien debt to 'B' from 'B+' and revised the recovery
rating to '3' from '2' following the upsizing of the first-lien
term loan.  The '2' recovery rating indicates that lenders could
expect meaningful (50% to 70%) recovery in the event of a payment
default.

"The ratings on Spin Holdco reflect our view of financial policy
associated with its ownership by a financial sponsor that has
demonstrated an aggressive acquisition appetite and usage of debt,
notwithstanding its sizable equity and second-lien term loan
investments in the company," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst
Jerry Phelan.  "The ratings also incorporate our view of the
company's participation in the mature outsourced laundry equipment
services business, an end-user customer base that we believe is
susceptible to high inflation and unemployment, the ability of
building owners and property managers to self-operate their
laundry facilities, and a tire inflation business that could see
demand weaken if fuel costs escalate."

Standard & Poor's assesses Spin Holdco's liquidity as "less than
adequate" due to the reduced cushion under the springing first-
lien net leverage covenant contained in the $75 million revolving
credit facility.

The outlook is stable.  S&P believes Spin Holdco can realize
revenue and cost synergies from the AIR-serv and Mac-Gray
acquisitions and modestly strengthen credit ratios.


STREAMTRACK INC: State Court OKs Stipulation with ASC Recap
-----------------------------------------------------------
The Superior Court in the Judicial District of Danbury,
Connecticut, entered an order approving the stipulation of the
parties in the matter of ASC Recap LLC v. StreamTrack, Inc.  Under
the Stipulation, the Company agreed to issue, as settlement of
liabilities owed by the Company to ASC in the aggregate amount of
$766,288, shares of common stock as follows:

   (a) In one or more tranches as necessary, 3,740,000 shares of
       common stock and an additional 200,000 shares of common
       stock as a settlement fee.

   (b) Through the Initial Issuance and any required additional
       issuances, that number of shares of common stock with an
       aggregate value equal to (A) the sum of (i) the Claim
       Amount and (ii) reasonable attorney fees and trade
       execution fees in the amount of $75,000, divided by (B) the
       Purchase Price (defined under the Stipulation as the market
       price (defined as the lowest closing bid price of the
       Company's common stock during the valuation period set
       forth in the Stipulation) less the product of the Discount
       (equal to 25 percent) and the market price.  The parties
       reasonably estimated that the fair market value of the
       Settlement Shares and all other amounts to be received by
       ASC is equal to approximately $1,100,000.

   (c) If at any time during the valuation period the closing bid
       price of the Company's common stock is below 90 percent of
       the closing bid price on the day before an issuance date,
       the Company will immediately cause to be issued to ASC
       those additional shares as may be required to effect the
       purposes of the Stipulation.

   (d) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the
       Stipulation, the number of shares beneficially owned by ASC
       will not exceed 9.99 percent of the Company's outstanding
       common stock.

                  Files Certificate of Designation

StreamTrack filed a Certificate of Designation of Series B
Preferred Stock with the Secretary of State of Wyoming.  Pursuant
to the Series B Certificate of Designation, the Company designated
200,000 shares of its blank check preferred stock as Series B
Preferred Stock.

The Series B Preferred Stock will rank senior to the common stock,
Series A Preferred Stock and any subsequently created series of
preferred stock that does not expressly rank pari passu with or
senior to the Series B Preferred Stock.  The Series B Preferred
Stock will not be entitled to dividends.  In the event of a
liquidation, the Series B Preferred Stock will be entitled to a
payment of the Stated Value of $1.00 per share prior to any
payments being made in respect of the Junior Stock.  Each share of
Series B Preferred Stock will entitle the holder to vote on all
matters voted on by holders of common stock as a single class.
With respect to any such vote, each share of Series B Preferred
Stock will entitle the holder to cast such number of votes equal
to 0.000255 percent of the total number of votes entitled to be
cast.  Effective upon the closing of a Qualified Financing, all
issued and outstanding shares of Series B Preferred Stock will
automatically convert into common stock in an amount determined by
dividing the product of the number of shares being converted and
the Stated Value by the Conversion Price.  The Conversion Price
will be equal to the price per share of the common stock sold
under the Qualified Financing.  A "Qualified Financing" is defined
as the sale by the Company in a single offering of common stock or
securities convertible into common stock for gross proceeds of at
least $5,000,000.

On Oct. 31, 2013, the Company entered into amendment, waiver and
exchange agreements with Michael Hill (the Company's chief
executive officer and director) and Aaron Gravitz (the Company's
director).  Under each Exchange Agreement, the Company issued to
each of Mr. Hill and Mr. Gravitz 100,000 shares of Series B
Preferred Stock in exchange for $100,000 in unpaid compensation.
In connection with the Exchange Agreements, the Company relied on
the exemptions from registration provided by Section 3(a)(9) and
4(a)(2) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.

SUNTECH POWER: Wuxi Guolian Offers to Invest $150 Million
---------------------------------------------------------
Suntech Power Holdings Co., Ltd., has received an investment
letter of intent from Wuxi Guolian Development (Group) Co., Ltd.
to make an equity investment into the Company of not less than
US$150,000,000 in cash in connection with supporting a
comprehensive rehabilitation and restructuring of the financial
and operational affairs of the Company.  In addition, it is
intended that Guolian would, upon satisfactory terms and
conditions, cause related solar and other businesses it owns to be
injected into the Company or enter into joint venture or similar
arrangements with the Company to take advantage of the Company's
global platform, distribution networks, and other synergies.

Guolian is an investment company based in Wuxi, Jiangsu Province,
China, with primary investments in finance and industry.  The
industry investments include downstream solar companies, power
generation projects, textile industries, waste disposal
facilities, and related environmental protection and energy
projects.  As of the end of 2012, the total assets and net assets
of Guolian were approximately US$6.7 billion and US$2.6 billion,
respectively.

Mr. Zhou Weiping, Suntech's CEO said, "Even though the investment
letter of intent is indicative only and is not a firm commitment,
this is an important step in the restructuring of the Company with
key stakeholders.  While there will be substantial dilution for
existing shareholders, the successful implementation of these
efforts will preserve the Company's international platform,
rebuild the Company's operating assets, and rehabilitate the
Company's global brand."

Guolian had previously participated in the competitive bidding
process for Wuxi Suntech Power Co., Ltd., the Company's principal
operating subsidiary in China currently in administration.  As
previously disclosed, Jiangsu Shunfeng Photovoltaic Technology
Co., Ltd., had on Oct. 8, 2013, been provisionally selected as the
strategic investor of Wuxi Suntech, and on Oct. 24, 2013, signed a
strategic cooperation agreement with Wuxi Suntech.  Such strategic
investor will be officially selected pending approval during a
second creditor's meeting of Wuxi Suntech scheduled on Nov. 12,
2013, and then final confirmation by the Wuxi Intermediate
People's Court.  Guolian's investment letter of intent refers to a
potential investment in Suntech Power Holdings Co. Ltd.

initiated against it on Oct. 14, 2013 in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in

TRAVEL LEADERS: S&P Assigns 'B+' Corp. Credit Rating; Outlook Pos.
------------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned Delaware-based Travel
Leaders Group LLC (TLG) a corporate credit rating of 'B+'.  The
rating outlook is positive.

At the same time, S&P assigned TLG's proposed $185 million senior
credit facility an issue-level rating of 'BB-', with a recovery
rating of '2', indicating its expectation for substantial (70% to
90%) recovery for lenders in the event of a payment default.  The
credit facility consists of a $15 million revolver due 2018 and a
$170 million term loan due 2019.

The company expects to use the proceeds from the new term loan to:

   -- To recapitalize the company's ownership structure.
      Following the completion of the transaction, management will
      wholly own the company;

   -- Fund a distribution to shareholders of $5.8 million;

   -- Refinance $69 million of existing debt; and

   -- Pay transaction-related fees and expenses.

S&P's 'B+' corporate credit rating on TLG reflects its view of the
company's financial risk profile as "aggressive" and its business
risk profile as "weak," according to its criteria.

"Our assessment of TLG's financial risk profile as aggressive
reflects our expectation for total lease-adjusted debt to EBITDA
to be in the low-4x area and for funds from operations to debt to
be in the high-teens percentage area through 2013.  We expect
adjusted debt to EBITDA to improve to the high-3x area and for FFO
to debt to be in the high-teens area in 2014.  We expect EBITDA
coverage of interest expense to be in the mid-4x area, pro forma
for the transaction.  This is very good compared with the
aggressive financial risk assessment and supports a good level of
anticipated free cash flow generation the company can use to make
a modest level of acquisitions and repay debt.  We believe TLG can
further improve leverage measures in 2015 through a combination of
EBITDA growth and debt repayment, supporting our positive rating
outlook," S&P said.

S&P's assessment of TLGs' business risk profile as weak reflects:

   -- The company's reliance on volatile consumer and corporate
      discretionary travel spending;

   -- Event risk related to contagious illness, violence, extreme
      weather, or terrorism that can lower travel volumes;

   -- Limited geographic and business diversity compared with
      other global leisure companies; and

   -- Significant competition in the highly fragmented travel
      leisure industry.


TRINITY COAL: Creditors Vote in Favor of Chapter 11 Plan
--------------------------------------------------------
Marie Beaudette, writing for DBR Small Cap, reported that most of
Trinity Coal Corp.'s creditors have voted to accept the company's
Chapter 11 restructuring plan, which would see it exit bankruptcy
protection under the control of its current owner, India's Essar
Global.

                        About Trinity Coal

Trinity Coal Corp. is a coal mining company that owns coal
deposits located in the Appalachian region of the eastern United

On March 4, 2013, the Debtors filed their consolidated answer to
involuntary petitions and consent to an order for relief and
reservation of rights, thereby consenting to the entry of an order
for relief in each of their respective Chapter 11 cases.  An order
for relief in each of the Debtors was entered by the Court on
March 4, 2013, which converted the involuntary cases to voluntary
Chapter 11 cases.

Steven J. Reisman, Esq., L. P. Harrison 3rd, Esq., Jerrold L.
Bregman, Esq., and Dienna Ching, Esq., at CURTIS, MALLET-PREVOST,

Disclosure Statement explaining the Joint Chapter 11 Plan of
Trinity Coal.  With this development, the Debtors are now
permitted to solicit acceptances of their Plan.


TWN INVESTMENT: Dec. 5 Hearing on Motion to Convert Case
--------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of California
will convene a hearing on Dec. 5, 2013, at 10 a.m., to consider
the motion to convert TWN Investment Group LLC's Chapter 11 case
to one under Chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code.

Edwina E. Dowell, Esq., on behalf of August B. Landis, Acting U.S.
Trustee for Region 17, asked that the Court to convert the
Debtor's case on the ground that the Court has granted relief from
stay to the Debtor's secured creditor, East West bank, and the
Debtor's real property will likely be foreclosed.

My Dowell also related that the Debtor's latest Monthly Operating
Report shows that it has only $431 in the bank.  There is nothing
left for the Debtor to reorganize.  In addition, a Chapter 7
trustee must investigate the past actions of the Debtor's
principals and East West Bank to determine if there have been any
improprieties with respect to deposits made by individuals, and
any other matters.

                    About TWN Investment Group

TWN Investment Group, LLC, filed a Chapter 11 petition in its
home-town in San, Jose California (Bankr. N.D. Calif. Case No.
13-50821) on Feb. 13, 2013.  The Company disclosed assets of $58.2
million and liabilities of $53.4 million in its schedules.

The Company owns partially developed real estate located at 909-
9999 Story Road, in San Jose.  The property is the company's sole
assets and secures a $48.1 million debt to East West Bank.

The Debtor is represented by Charles B. Greene, Esq., at the Law
Offices of Charles B. Greene, in San Jose.

Rene Lastreto II, Esq., at Lang Richert & Patch, represents the
Committee.


TWN INVESTMENT: East West Permitted to Foreclose Properties
-----------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Stephen L. Johnson of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Northern District of California lifted the automatic stay in the
Chapter 11 case of TWN Investment Group, LLC to permit East West
Bank to enforce its remedies to foreclose upon and obtain
possession of the Debtor's properties in accordance with
applicable nonbankruptcy law.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Oct. 1, 2013, East
West requested for relief from stay with respect to these
properties -- 969, 979, 989, and 999 Story Road, San Jose,
California.

EWB has a filed claim in the amount of $47,389,057.  EWB's
appraisal indicates that the property has a value of $33,800,000
retail and $27,700,000 bulk sale.

According to Curtis C. Jung, Esq., at Jung & Yuen, LLP, on behalf
of EWB, the bank is entitled to relief of stay because, among
other things:

   1. there is no "equity cushion" in the property sufficient
      to adequately protect EWB and its interest in the property;

   2. the property is not necessary for an effective
      reorganization; and

   3. the Debtor's payments are not a bar to relief under
      Section 362(d)(2) of the Bankruptcy Code.

USEC INC: S&P Affirms 'CCC' Corp. Credit Rating; Outlook Negative
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services affirmed its 'CCC' corporate
credit rating on USEC Inc. following a final evaluation of the
company's credit profile.  The outlook remained negative.  S&P
subsequently withdrew all of its corporate credit and issue-level
ratings on USEC as requested by the company.

Prior to being withdrawn, USEC's rating reflected S&P's view of
the company's business risk as "vulnerable", its financial risk as
"highly leveraged", and its liquidity as "less than adequate".  In
S&P's opinion, risks include the company's ability to successfully
transition its enrichment process to centrifugation as well as
funding uncertainty related to USEC's loan guarantee application
with the Department of Energy. USEC is a Bethesda, Md.-based
uranium enrichment company.


VELTI INC: Meeting to Form Creditors' Panel on Nov. 12
------------------------------------------------------
Roberta A. DeAngelis, United States Trustee for Region 3, will
hold an organizational meeting on Nov. 12, 2013 at 10:00 a.m. in
the bankruptcy cases of Velti Inc., et al.  The meeting will be
held at:

         J. Caleb Boggs Federal Building
         844 King Street, Room 2112
         Wilmington, DE 19801

The sole purpose of the meeting will be to form a committee or
committees of unsecured creditors in the Debtors' case.

The organizational meeting is not the meeting of creditors
pursuant to Section 341 of the Bankruptcy Code.  A representative
of the Debtor, however, may attend the Organizational Meeting, and
provide background information regarding the bankruptcy cases.

To increase participation in the Chapter 11 proceeding, Section
1102 of the Bankruptcy Code requires that the United States
Trustee appoint a committee of unsecured creditors as soon as
practicable.  The Committee ordinarily consists of the persons,
willing to serve, that hold the seven largest unsecured claims
against the debtor of the kinds represented on the committee.
Section 1103 of the Bankruptcy Code provides that the Committee
may consult with the debtor, investigate the debtor and its
business operations and participate in the formulation of a plan
of reorganization.  The Committee may also perform other services
as are in the interests of the unsecured creditors whom it
represents.


VELTI INC: Obtained Interim $6.3-Mil. DIP Loan Approval

occur of (i) 30 days after entry of the Interim Order if the Final
Order has not been entered on or prior to that date, (ii) Dec. 31,
2013, provided that, subject to the satisfaction of certain
requirements, the Borrowers may elect once to extend that date by

of a chapter 11 plan; (iv) the closing date of the sale of the

up to $750,000 of allowed and unpaid fees and expenses of
professionals retained by order of the Bankruptcy Court, incurred

VERTIS HOLDINGS: Seeks Another Three Months for Liquidating Plan
----------------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that although Vertis Inc. sold most of its assets in
January, the Baltimore-based advertising and marketing services
provider still isn't ready to file a liquidating Chapter 11 plan.

According to the report, the company filed papers this week for a
fourth time seeking to extend its exclusive right to propose a
plan. If approved at a Dec. 11 hearing, the new deadline will be
Feb. 3, about two months short of the maximum permitted under the
U.S. Bankruptcy Code.

Quad/Graphics Inc. bought the business for a net purchase price
that worked out to be $170 million, the buyer said.  The sale
created a $20 million fund to wind down the remainder of the
bankruptcy. By this month, about $10 million is left.

Vertis was in bankruptcy twice before. The prior bankruptcy in
late 2010 required less than a month to complete. That plan
eliminated $700 million in debt.  In the new bankruptcy, Vertis
listed assets of $837.8 million and debt totaling $814 million.
Liabilities included $68.6 million on a revolving credit and
$427.7 million on a secured term loan.

Through the first bankruptcy in 2008, Vertis merged with American
Color Graphics Inc., also in Chapter 11 at the time.  The first
reorganization reduced combined debt by almost $1 billion.

Vertis and its affiliates (Bankr. D. Del. Lead Case No. 12-12821),
returned to Chapter 11 bankruptcy on Oct. 10, 2012, this time to
sell the business to Quad/Graphics, Inc., for $258.5 million,
subject to higher and better offers in an auction.

As of Aug. 31, 2012, the Debtors' unaudited consolidated financial
statements reflected assets of approximately $837.8 million and
liabilities of approximately $814.0 million.

Bankruptcy Judge Christopher Sontchi presides over the 2012 case.

Vertis first filed for bankruptcy (Bankr. D. Del. Case No.
08-11460) on July 15, 2008, to complete a merger with American
Color Graphics.  ACG also commenced separate bankruptcy
proceedings.  In August 2008, Vertis emerged from bankruptcy,
completing the merger.

Vertis against filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy (Bankr. S.D.N.Y.
Case No. 10-16170) on Nov. 17, 2010.  The Debtor estimated its
assets and debts of more than $1 billion.  Affiliates also filed
separate Chapter 11 petitions -- American Color Graphics, Inc.
(Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 10-16169), Vertis Holdings, Inc. (Bankr.
S.D.N.Y. Case No. 10-16170), Vertis, Inc. (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case
No. 10-16171), ACG Holdings, Inc. (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No.
10-16172), Webcraft, LLC (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 10-16173), and
Webcraft Chemicals, LLC (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 10-16174).  The
bankruptcy court approved the prepackaged Chapter 11 plan on
Dec. 16, 2010, and Vertis consummated the plan on Dec. 21.  The
plan reduced Vertis' debt by more than $700 million or 60%.

On Jan. 16, 2013, Quad/Graphics completed the acquisition of
Vertis Holdings for a net purchase price of $170 million.  This
assumes the purchase price of $267 million less the payment of
$97 million for current assets that are in excess of normalized
working capital requirements.

WAFERGEN BIO-SYSTEMS: Inks Pact to Liquidate Subsidiary
-------------------------------------------------------
WaferGen Bio-systems, Inc., WaferGen Biosystems (M) Sdn. Bhd., a
subsidiary of the Company, and Malaysian Technology Development
Corporation Sdn. Bhd. entered into an agreement to liquidate WGBM.

Pursuant to the terms of the Agreement, certain promissory notes,
which were issued in August 2013 by the Company in favor of WGBM
in consideration of WGBM's cancellation of the Company's
obligations under a term loan owing to WGBM, will be divided in
increments of $100,000 each, of which the Company will receive 14
and MTDC the remaining 52.  At any time prior to their maturity
date, the Company may issue MTDC shares of the Company's common
stock with a value, based on the average closing price in the
preceding 30 days, equal to the face value of their notes.  The
remaining net assets of WGBM of approximately $300,000 will be
distributed 22.42 percent to the Company and 77.78 percent to
MTDC.

As a result of the liquidation of WGBM, the Company will be
required to record Malaysia Notes with an aggregate face value of
$5.2 million as debt, net of debt discount initially estimated to
be approximately $3 million, on its balance sheet, with an
offsetting reduction in derivative liabilities and temporary
equity.

WALLDESIGN INC: Has Joint Plan With Creditors Committee
-------------------------------------------------------
Walldesign Inc. will seek approval of the disclosure statement
explaining its proposed Chapter 11 Plan of Liquidation on Nov. 20,
2013, at 10:00 a.m.

Walldesign on Oct. 18, 2013, filed a disclosure statement
explaining its proposed Chapter 11 plan.  A copy of the document
is available for free at:

  http://bankrupt.com/misc/Walldesign_Inc_Plan_Outline_101813.pdf

The Debtor and the statutory committee of unsecured creditors have
prepared a Joint Plan after extensive review and analysis of all
options available to the estate's creditors.

The Plan provides for the liquidation of assets of the estate.
The Debtor and the Committee seek to make payments under the Plan
to holders of allowed administrative claims and other holders of
classes entitled to distributions of all cash on hand, together
with net proceeds realized from the litigation of claims held by
the estate and liquidation of any other assets.

Under the Plan, secured creditors Comerica and VFS are unimpaired
and will be paid from the liquidation of their collateral.
Unsecured creditors are impaired and will receive interests in the
liquidation trust created under the Plan.  The disclosure
statement did not provide for an estimated recovery for unsecured
creditors.

                          Claims vs. Bello

The Creditors Committee has begun an investigation of potential
claims against Michael Bello and other insiders.  Mr. Bello was
the CEO and sole shareholder of the Debtor.

The Committee says that distributions that Bello received from the
Debtor total in excess of $20 million during the four years
preceding the Petition Date.  As the Debtor was insolvent,
undercapitalized and/or unable to pay its debts as they became due
during the period, the Committee intends to recover such
distributions for the benefit of the Debtor's estates.

The Committee has sought approval to retain the law firm of Landau
Gottfried & Berger LLP as special litigation attorneys to further
investigate and, as appropriate, prosecute claims against Bello
and other insiders on a contingent fee basis.  Upon approval of
the retention, the Committee will file a complaint against Bello
and other insiders, as well as other third parties.

Recoveries from the Joint Plan will be funded from the proceeds of
the Committee's litigation against Bello and other insiders.

                      Objections to Disclosures

The Painters Joint Trusts, which are priority unsecured creditors,
opposes approval of the Disclosure Statement in its present form.
The Trusts say the Disclosure Statement and the Plan (i) do not
adequately distinguish between non-tax priority unsecured claims,
as required by the various sections of 11 U.S.C. Sec. 507; and
(ii) do not provide sufficient information to allow priority
unsecured creditors to estimate the sums they can expect to
receive from the Estate.  The Trusts also say the Debtor claims to
reject the collective bargaining agreement which grants valuable
rights to the Trusts, as third-party beneficiaries,
notwithstanding the fact that the Debtor has not presented any
evidence of compliance with 11 U.S.C. Sec. 1113, the exclusive
statutory source of legal requirements for postpetition
termination of collective bargaining agreements.

Walldesign, based in Newport Beach, California, said the global
credit crisis that occurred in the third quarter of 2008 had a
severe negative impact on its business: capital for construction
projects dried up, buyers vacated the market for new homes and
profit margins on new jobs eroded.  Although it has significantly
downsized its operations in an effort to remain profitable in the
recessionary conditions, cash flow problems arose during this
process.  These problems slowed payments to vendors, precipitating
collection lawsuits forcing it to seek Chapter 11 protection
(Bankr. C.D. Calif. Case No. 12-10105) on Jan. 4, 2012.

Judge Robert N. Kwan presides over the case.  Marc J. Winthrop,
Esq., Sean A. O'Keefe, Esq., and Jeannie Kim, Esq., at Winthrop
Couchot, serve as the Debtor's counsel.  In its petition, the
Debtor estimated $10 million to $50 million in assets and debts.
The petition was signed by Michael Bello, chief executive officer.

Brian Weiss of BSW & Associates serve as the Debtor's Chief
Restructuring Officer.

An official committee of unsecured creditors has been appointed in
the case.  The Committee tapped Jones Day as its counsel.



WEST CORP: Files Form 10-Q, Posts $46.1 Million Net Income in Q3

* Non-Recourse Underwater Mortgages Are Valid Claims
----------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that the U.S. Court of Appeals in Chicago handed down an
11-page opinion this week to state the obvious: a non-recourse
subordinate mortgage completely under water nonetheless represents
an unsecured claim under Section 1111(b)(1)(A) of the Bankruptcy
Code.

According to the report, the Chapter 11 case involved real
property worth less than the $8.9 million first mortgage. The $2.5
million second mortgage was non-recourse, meaning the mortgage
holder outside of bankruptcy could look only to the property and
would have no claim against the owner for a deficiency. The debtor
argued that the holder of the concededly valid second mortgage had
no claim whatsoever.

The debtor advanced several theories, rejected in the Nov. 4
opinion for the three-judge panel by U.S. Circuit Judge William J.
Bauer, including the notion that neither the state nor Section
1111(b) gave the mortgage holder a deficiency claim against the
debtor.

Judge Bauer surveyed the plain language of the statue, along with
legislative history, to conclude that Section 1111(b) affords the
mortgage holder an unsecured claim.

Judge Bauer said the bankrupt was unable to cite any court opinion
saying the mortgage holder had no claim at all.

The case is In re Brookfield Commons No. 1 LLC, 13-2241, U.S.
Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit (Chicago).


* Late Claim Doesn't Invalidate Underlying Mortgage
---------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that the U.S. Court of Appeals in St. Louis joined two
other circuit courts in ruling that the failure to file a timely
claim doesn't invalidate the underlying mortgage.

According to the report, in a Chapter 13 case, the last day for
filing claims was in January. The home mortgage lender, owed
$210,000, didn't file a claim until August. The individual
bankrupts conceded that the mortgage was otherwise valid and
enforceable.

The bankruptcy judge, upheld by the Bankruptcy Appellate Panel,
rejected the bankrupts' argument that the lien was invalid because
the claim was untimely. The bankrupts relied on the plain language
of Section 506(d) of the Bankruptcy Code.

Writing for three judges on the St. Louis appeals court, U.S.
Circuit Judge Michael J. Melloy noted in his Nov. 4 opinion that
the plain-meaning argument had some appeal, although it is
overcome by the U.S. Supreme Court's Dewsnup opinion, holding that
mortgages ride through bankruptcy.

U.S. Courts of Appeal in Chicago and Richmond, Virginia have
already issued opinions saying that a late-filed claim doesn't
invalidate the underlying mortgage.

The case is Shelton v. Citimortgage Inc. (In re Shelton), 12-3555,
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit (St. Louis).


* Rollover IRA Remains an Exempt Asset in Bankruptcy
----------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that an investment retirement account created by a
rollover from an existing IRA is an exempt asset under Section
522(b)(3)(C) of the Bankruptcy Code, according to a Nov. 4 opinion
from the U.S. Bankruptcy Appellate Panel in St. Louis.

According to the report, an individual in Chapter 7 held an
annuity in an IRA worth $236,000. The trustee unsuccessfully
argued in bankruptcy court that it wasn't an exempt asset because
the entire purchase price for the annuity was paid in one lump sum
by rolling over another IRA.

U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Arthur B. Federman, writing for the three-
judge panel, upheld the lower court by ruling that the annuity in
the IRA was exempt.

Judge Federman said neither the Internal Revenue Service nor any
court had ever said a rollover IRA didn't qualify under Section
408 of the IRS Code, governing what qualifies as an IRA.

Because the IRA qualified under Section 408, it was an exempt
asset under Bankruptcy Code Section 522, Judge Federman said.

The case is Running v. Miller (In re Miller), 13-6026, U.S.
Bankruptcy Appellate Panel for the Eighth Circuit (St. Louis).


* Fitch: ACA Enrollment Extension Could Dent Insurance Industry
---------------------------------------------------------------
Extending the enrollment period for Americans seeking health
coverage under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act
could cause pricing and logistical implications for U.S. health
insurers, according to Fitch Ratings.  Fitch believes an extension
would be a negative for health insurers. Pressure on insurers to
extend existing policies is also in focus, but is likely less
problematic than extending the enrollment period.

An extension would enable consumers to put off any decision about
purchasing healthcare beyond the current deadline, potentially
increasing the portion of those who wait until they need the
insurance to buy it. The open enrollment period for health
insurance plans offered in the insurance exchanges began on Oct. 1
and the process has been plagued with technical problems on
websites including www.healthcare.gov. The current deadline for
enrollment is March 31, 2014, although plans will take effect on
Jan. 1 for those who sign up earlier.

Allowing more time would also result in a bevy of logistical
issues regarding pricing and state participation that could raise
short-term risk for insurers as well as delay the positive
benefits of ACA for hospitals.

Under normal circumstances, insurers set premium rates in advance
of the enrollment period based on estimates of the cost of care
during that enrollment period. To the extent that the enrollment
period is lengthened, those cost of care estimates could deviate
more from the original estimates. Insurers would like to be able
to price for this risk, but it is unclear as to whether they would
be able to.

Additionally, insurers in some states are being encouraged by
state insurance regulators to extend existing policies for three
months beyond their Jan. 1, 2014 expiration date due to
technological problems with the exchanges' websites. Fitch views
this as less problematic for health insurers than an extension of
the current enrollment period as long as benefits and premiums on
the extended policies are unchanged from current levels and the
extension is effective for only a relatively short period.

Nevertheless, such extensions could result in a short-term
increase in risk levels of business sourced through the exchanges
under the assumption that the consumers whose policies are
extended are likely to have better risk profiles than early users
of exchange-sourced insurance. The financial results of insurers
whose enrollment is disproportionally weighted towards exchange-
sourced business could be adversely affected by the extension.

Fitch also believes an extension would be negative for hospitals
because it would delay the realization of the positive benefits of
reform, which are higher patient volumes and lower bad debt
expense related to treating the uninsured.


* BOOK REVIEW: The Oil Business in Latin America: The Early Years

http://is.gd/DvFouR

This book grew out of a 1981 meeting of the American Historical
Society. It highlights the origin and evolution of the state-
owned petroleum companies in Argentina, Mexico, Brazil, and
Venezuela.

Argentina was the first country ever to nationalize its
petroleum industry, and soon it was the norm worldwide, with the
notable exception of the United States. John Wirth calls this
phenomenon "perhaps in our century the oldest and most
celebrated of confrontations between powerful private entities
and the state."

The book consists of five case studies and a conclusion, as
follows:

     * Jersey Standard and the Politics of Latin American Oil
          Production, 1911-30 (Jonathan C. Brown)

     * YPF: The Formative Years of Latin America's Pioneer State
          Oil Company, 1922-39 (Carl E. Solberg)

     * Setting the Brazilian Agenda, 1936-39 (John Wirth)

     * Pemex: The Trajectory of National Oil Policy (Esperanza
          Duran)

     * The Politics of Energy in Venezuela (Edwin Lieuwen)

     * The State Companies: A Public Policy Perspective (Alfred
          H. Saulniers)

The authors assess the conditions at the time they were writing,
and relate them back to the critical formative years for each of
the companies under review. They also examine the four
interconnecting roles of a state-run oil industry and
distinguish them from those of a private company. First, is the
entrepreneurial role of control, management, and exploitation of
a nation's oil resources. Second, is production for the private
industrial sector at attractive prices. Third, is the
integration of plans for military, financial, and development
programs into the overall industrial policy planning process.
Finally, in some countries is the promotion of social
development by subsidizing energy for consumers and by promoting
the government's ideas of social and labor policy and labor
relations.

The author's approach is "conceptual and policy oriented rather
than narrative," but they provide a fascinating look at the
politics and development of the region. Mr. Brown provides a
concise history of the early years of the Standard Oil group and
the effects of its 1911 dissolution on its Latin American
operations, as well as power struggles with competitors and
governments that eventually nationalized most of its activities.
Mr. Solberg covers the many years of internal conflict over oil
policy in Argentina and YPF's lack of monopoly control over all
sectors of the oil industry. Mr. Wirth describes the politics
and individuals behind the privatization of Brazil's oil
industry leading to the creation of Petrobras in 1953. Mr. Duran
notes the wrangling between provinces and central government in
the evolution of Pemex, and in other Latin American countries.
Mr. Lieuwin discusses the mixed blessing that oil has proven for
Venezuela., creating a lopsided economy dependent on the ups and
downs of international markets. Mr. Saunders concludes that many
of the then-current problems of the state oil companies were
rooted in their early and checkered histories." Indeed, he says,
"the problems of the past have endured not because the public
petroleum companies behaved like the public enterprises they
are; they have endured because governments, as public owners,
have abdicated their responsibilities to the companies."

John D. Wirth is Gildred Professor of Latin American Studies at
Standford University.

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

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

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

Each Friday's edition of the TCR includes a review about a book of
interest to troubled company professionals.  All titles are
available at your local bookstore or through Amazon.com.  Go to
http://www.bankrupt.com/books/to order any title today.

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

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