ADAMIS PHARMACEUTICALS: Austin Marxe No Longer a Shareholder
------------------------------------------------------------
In an amended Schedule 13G filed with the U.S. Securities and
Exchange Commission, Austin W. Marxe, David M. Greenhouse and Adam
C. Stettner disclosed that as of April 30, 2014, they ceased to be
the beneficial owner of any shares of common stock of Adamis
Pharmaceuticals Corporation.  The reporting persons previousy
owned 525,000 shares of common stock at Dec. 31, 2013.  A copy of
the regulatory filing is available at http://is.gd/HXpcsJ

                            About Adamis

San Diego, Calif.-based Adamis Pharmaceuticals Corporation (OTC
QB: ADMP) is a biopharmaceutical company engaged in the
development and commercialization of specialty pharmaceutical and
biotechnology products in the therapeutic areas of respiratory
disease, allergy, oncology and immunology.

The Company's independent registered public accounting firm has
included a "going concern" explanatory paragraph in its report on
the Company's financial statements for the years ended March 31,
2013, and 2012, indicating that the Company has incurred recurring
losses from operations and has limited working capital to pursue
its business alternatives, and that these factors raise
substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a
going concern.

As of Dec. 31, 2013, the Company had $14.76 million in total
assets, $4.66 million in total liabilities and $10.09 million in
total stockholders' equity.

                         Bankruptcy Warning

"Our management intends to address any shortfall of working
capital by attempting to secure additional funding through equity
or debt financings, sales or out-licensing of intellectual
property assets, seeking partnerships with other pharmaceutical
companies or third parties to co-develop and fund research and
development efforts, or similar transactions.  However, there can
be no assurance that we will be able to obtain any sources of
funding.  If we are unsuccessful in securing funding from any of
these sources, we will defer, reduce or eliminate certain planned
expenditures.  There is no assurance that any of the above options
will be implemented on a timely basis or that we will be able to
obtain additional financing on acceptable terms, if at all.  If
adequate funds are not available on acceptable terms, we could be
required to delay development or commercialization of some or all
of our products, to license to third parties the rights to
commercialize certain products that we would otherwise seek to
develop or commercialize internally, or to reduce resources
devoted to product development.  In addition, one or more
licensors of patents and intellectual property rights that we have
in-licensed could seek to terminate our license agreements, if our
lack of funding made us unable to comply with the provisions of
those agreements.  If we did not have sufficient funds to continue
operations, we could be required to seek bankruptcy protection or
other alternatives that could result in our stockholders losing
some or all of their investment in us.  Any failure to dispel any
continuing doubts about our ability to continue as a going concern
could adversely affect our ability to enter into collaborative
relationships with business partners, make it more difficult to
obtain required financing on favorable terms or at all, negatively
affect the market price of our common stock and could otherwise
have a material adverse effect on our business, financial
condition and results of operations," the Company said in its
quarterly report for the period ended Dec. 31, 2013.


ABLEST INC: Select Staffing's Chapter 11 Plan Formally Approved
---------------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that Select Family of Staffing Cos., formally named
Koosharem LLC, got through bankruptcy court in Delaware in less
than six weeks.

According to the report, the bankruptcy judge signed a
confirmation order on May 8, approving a reorganization plan that
had been negotiated in advance.

The Plan revolves around a court-approved restructuring support
agreement between the Debtors and (i) approximately 70% of the
Prepetition First Lien Lenders, representing approximately 82% of
the claims under the Prepetition First Lien Credit Agreement and
(ii) approximately 81% of the Prepetition Second Lien Lenders,
representing approximately 87% of the claims under the Prepetition
Second Lien Credit Agreement; and authorized the Debtors to assume
the so-called "Sorensen Support Agreement."

In order to effectuate the transactions contemplated by the Plan,
Debtor New Koosharem Corporation entered into the Sorensen Support
Agreement with, among others, Shannon Sorensen, Stephanie
Sorensen, John Sorensen, Paul Sorensen, Allyson Sorenson, and the
Sorensen Family Trust U/D/T/ July 26, 1991, as amended.  The
Sorensen Parties agreed agreed to deliver variety of documents,
including the sale of business agreement, the employment
agreement, and the restricted stock award agreement, to complete
all actions contemplated in the Plan.

To finance the continued operation of the Debtors' business and
pay necessary costs, the Debtors received final authority to
obtain postpetition financing up to an aggregate amount of up to
$50 million from Credit Suisse AG, Cayman Islands Branch, as
administrative and collateral agent, and use cash collateral
securing their prepetition indebtedness.  The Debtors also
received interim authority from the Court to use $20 million of
the $50 million DIP financing.

                       About Ablest Inc.

Ablest Inc. and its debtor-affiliates sought bankruptcy protection
(Bankr. D. Del. Lead Case No. 14-10717) on April 1, 2014, with a
prepackaged plan of reorganization that will reduce debt by $300
million.

Ablest together with its affiliates is a leading national provider
of temporary staffing services in the United States and is the
largest provider of temporary staffing services in California.  It
provides staffing services on temporary, "temp-to-hire", and
project-by-project basis through a network of 312 offices in 48
states.  The company currently employs 75,000 full and part time
employees in hourly, salaried, supervisory, management and sales
positions plus 1,500 corporate and branch employees.

During the fiscal year ended Dec. 29, 2013, the Debtors placed
approximately 300,000 temporary employees and provided staffing
services to 11,500 customers.  For fiscal year 2013, the Debtors
had $2 billion in gross revenue.

The Debtors have tapped (i) the law firm of Pachulski Stang Ziehl
& Jones LLP as co-restructuring counsel; (ii) Skadden, Arps,
Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP as co-restructuring counsel and
corporate and securities counsel; (iii) AlixPartners LLP as
restructuring advisors; (iv) Goldman, Sachs & Co., as financial
advisor; and (v) Kurtzman Carson Consultants LLC as claims and
noticing agent.

As of April 1, 2014, the Debtors have outstanding secured
debt in an aggregate amount, including accrued interest, of
approximately $651 million.  Ablest's assets are estimated at $100
million to $500 million.


AEOLUS PHARMACEUTICALS: Modifies Contract with BARDA
----------------------------------------------------
Aeolus Pharmaceuticals, Inc., executed a Modification of Contract
with the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority.
The purpose of the Modification is to (1) make available
$1,777,882 to reimburse the Company for actual costs incurred
under the first three years of its contract with BARDA, (2)
establish an increased provisional indirect billing rate for
FY2014 and the rest of the BARDA Contract period of performance,
and (3) establish a cap on the indirect billing rate for the
remaining contract period of performance.

The Company has submitted an invoice to BARDA for payment of the
$1,777,882.

The effect of the Modification will be (a) to increase the cash
balance of the Company and (b) to increase the billing rate for
indirect costs under the contract.  The Company believes the
combination of the cash payment and increased billing rates will
give it sufficient capital to fund operations for at least two
years.

                   About Aeolus Pharmaceuticals

Mission Viejo, California-based Aeolus Pharmaceuticals, Inc., is a
Southern California-based biopharmaceutical company leveraging
significant government investment to develop a platform of novel
compounds in oncology and biodefense.  The platform consists of
over 200 compounds licensed from Duke University and National
Jewish Health.

The Company's lead compound, AEOL 10150, is being developed as a
medical countermeasure ("MCM") against the pulmonary sub-syndrome
of acute radiation syndrome ("Pulmonary Acute Radiation Syndrome"
or "Lung-ARS") as well as the gastrointestinal sub-syndrome of
acute radiation syndrome ("GI-ARS").  Both syndromes are caused by
acute exposure to high levels of radiation due to a radiological
or nuclear event.  It is also being developed for use as a MCM for
exposure to chemical vesicants such as chlorine gas, sulfur
mustard gas and nerve agents.

Aeolus Pharmaceuticals reported a net loss of $3.20 million on
$3.92 million of contract revenue for the fiscal year ended
Sept. 30, 2013, as compared with net income of $1.69 million on
$7.29 million of contract revenue during the prior fiscal year.
As of Dec. 31, 2013, the Company had $2.75 million in total
assets, $2.48 million in total liabilities and $278,000 in total
stockholders' equity.

Grant Thornton LLP, in San Diego, California, issued a "going
concern" qualification on the consolidated financial statements
for the year ended Sept. 30, 2013.  The independent auditors noted
that the Company has incurred recurring losses and negative cash
flows from operations, and management believes the Company does
not currently possess sufficient working capital to fund its
operations through fiscal 2014.  These conditions, along with
other matters...raise substantial doubt about the Company's
ability to continue as a going concern.


AGFEED USA: Court Extends Removal Period to July 9
--------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Brendan L. Shannon of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Delaware extended the time period within which AgFeed
USA LLC and its debtor-affiliates may file notices of removal of
related proceedings until July 9, 2014.

                       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.

An 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.

In October 2013, AgFeed completed the sale of the U.S. operations
to three buyers for $79.45 million, including $53.4 million in
cash.

In November 2013, the Court authorized AgFeed to sell its Chinese
assets to Hong Kong firm Good Charm International Development Ltd.
in a deal that is expected to net the debtor $45 million once
several highly negotiated price adjustments are factored in.  An
auction was held for the Chinese facilities on Nov. 20, although
no one emerged to top what was originally a $50.5 million bid.
The price was lowered by $3.45 million in view of what the
contract called "newly discovered" operational problems and
"deterioration of the performance" of feed mills.

In December 2013, AgFeed filed a proposed plan of liquidation
showing all creditors as being paid in full, with interest.  The
Plan proposes to create a trust to prosecute lawsuits and collect
remaining assets.


AKORN INC: Moody's Puts 'B1' CFR on Review for Downgrade
--------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service placed the ratings of Akorn, Inc.,
including the B1 Corporate Family Rating and B1-PD Probability of
Default Rating under review for downgrade. The rating action
follows Akorn's announcement that it is acquiring VPI Holdings
Corp., the parent company of VersaPharm Incorporated, for $440
million in cash. Akorn will fund the transaction through an
approximate $445 million increase in its existing term loan. The
B1 rating on the senior secured term loan (which is currently $600
million), was also placed under review for downgrade. Moody's
affirmed Akorn's SGL-2 Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating,
reflecting the rating agency's expectation for good liquidity.

Ratings Placed Under Review:

Corporate Family Rating at B1

Probability of Default Rating at B1-PD

Senior secured term loan rating at B1 (LGD 4, 50%)

Rating Affirmed:

Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating, SGL-2

Ratings Rationale

The rating review will focus on Akorn's resulting leverage
following the acquisition of VersaPharm as well as the execution
risk associated with acquiring VersaPharm so shortly after the
acquisition of Hi-Tech Pharmacal (which closed April 17, 2014).
Moody's will consider the strategic fit of VersaPharm's assets and
possible synergies, as well as the benefits of added scale and
product diversity. The review will also focus on the operating
trends and growth outlook for both Akorn and VersaPharm as well as
the company's appetite for future acquisitions in the context of
the rapidly consolidating generic pharmaceutical industry.

The current B1 rating is constrained by Akorn's small size, and
its niche position in the highly competitive generic drug industry
where it competes against significantly larger companies. The
rating is also constrained by risks associated with the injectable
drugs business -- namely the risk of manufacturing or supply
disruptions and regulatory constraints. Further, Moody's believes
that the generic injectable drug industry will become more
competitive as several large companies put increasing focus on
this area.

The B1 rating is supported by Akorn's good diversity by product
and dosage form. Akorn generates a large portion of its sales from
a diversified portfolio of niche ophthalmics, liquids, creams,
nasal sprays and over-the-counter drugs. This portfolio of more
stable -- albeit slower growth -- products will offset the higher
growth and riskier injectable business. The rating is also
supported by the company's solid pipeline of new product launches
which should offset potential near-term declines in fluticasone
and Nembutal -- currently the combined company's two largest
products.

Akorn, Inc. ("Akorn": NASDAQ: AKRX), founded in 1971 and
headquartered in Lake Forest, IL, is a specialty generic
pharmaceutical manufacturer. The company focuses primarily on
generic ophthalmic drugs and injectable drugs for use in
hospitals. Pro forma for Hi-Tech and VersaPharm, the combined
company will generate revenue in excess of $600 million.


ALCO CORP: Asserts Case Conversion Won't Benefit Creditor
---------------------------------------------------------
Alco Corporation responded to PR Asset Portfolio 2013-1
International LLC's objection to the motion to voluntarily dismiss
its Chapter 11 case, stating that PR Asset's request demonstrates
the creditor's attempt to continue thwarting the negotiations
between the Debtor, Betteroads Group and the Bonding Companies.

According to the Debtor, PR Asset seeks an amicable resolution to
all litigation in the lead case, both adversary proceedings before
the Court and the state court litigation.

Both Betteroads Group and the Bonding Companies support the
Debtor's request for the voluntary dismissal since it provides a
viable alternative to resolve the controversies with the key
players of the case and resolve the largest claims held against
the debtor without further litigation.

The Debtor also reaffirms that conversion of the case to Chapter 7
will not provide any benefit to creditors, including PR Asset.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on May 7, 2014, PR
Asset said the Debtor's only intention through the voluntary
dismissal is to continue with its liquidation without supervision
of the Court and in detriment of creditors.  PR Asset related that
it has a lien over all of the Debtor's asset by virtue Banco de
Popular de Puerto Rico's transfer of its claim against the Debtor
to PR Asset.

PR Asset complained that by entering into a stipulation with the
Bonding Companies, the Debtor unlawfully attempted to infringe on
PR Asset's existing liens and security interests.  PR Asset cited
that the Debtor purported to grant the Bonding Companies with
adequate protection in the form of a valid, first rank lien, in
the Debtor's cash collateral.  Moreover, PR Asset contended, the
Debtor accepts that it mismanaged the estate when it admits that
it has ceased operations in the Canovanas Asphalt Plan.  PR Asset
is convinced that the appointment of a Chapter 7 trustee will
allow payment to be obtained in an efficient and organized manner.

The Debtor, in its motion, said the dismissal of the case will
benefit of all creditors and parties-in-interest so as to allow it
to resolve all pending matters outside of bankruptcy and continue
with the implementation of its confirmed plan of reorganization.
The Debtor believe the dismissal will allow it to resolve more
efficiently all matters with Betteroads Asphalt, secured creditor
PR Asset and the bonding companies -- Travelers Casualty and
Surety Company, Reliance Insurance Company and MAPFRE PRAICO
Insurance Company.

BRA and the Debtor were involved in state court litigation over
the collection of monies against the Debtor and its principals.
BRA also appealed the Bankruptcy Court's confirmation order on the
Debtor's Plan.  The parties were eventually able to arrive at a
settlement in 2013.  However, the Bonding Companies opposed the
settlement.

The Debtor eventually reached a settlement with the Bonding
Companies in January 2014.  That settlement was opposed by PR
Asset.  No settlement has been reached with PR Asset as of
presstime.

As stated in open court at an April 2 hearing, all the parties
except for PR Asset favor the dismissal of the Debtor's case.

The Debtor maintains that if the case is dismissed, PR Asset will
suffer no harm.  PR Asset holds a lien over the Debtor's primary
assets and is said to have obtained a judgment against the Debtor
prior to the bankruptcy filing.  Thus, if dismissal is granted, PR
Asset has the alternative to execute its judgment and obtain an
adequate remedy in law in order to collect the remainder of the
claim which was unpaid.

On the other hand, the Debtor contends, conversion of the case
will burden the estate further since Chapter 7 administrative
expenses will accrue and the litigation in both adversary
proceedings and any other contested matter in the lead case will
continue.

                        About Alion Science

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

Alion Science has been reporting losses for four consecutive years
from Sept. 30, 2010, to Sept. 30, 2013.  In 2013, Alion Science
incurred a net loss of $36.59 million.

Deloitte & Touche LLP, in McLean, Virginia, issued a "going
concern" qualification on the consolidated financial statements
for the year ended Sept. 30, 2013.  The independent auditors noted
that the Company does not expect to be able to repay its existing
debt at their scheduled maturities.  The Company's financing
needs, its recurring net losses, and its excess of liabilities
over assets raise substantial doubt about its ability to continue
as a going concern, the auditors stated.

As of Dec. 31, 2013, the Company had $599.39 million in total
assets, $787.09 million in total liabilities, $61.89 million in
redeemable common stock, $20.78 million in common stock warrants,
$130,000 in accumulated other comprehensive loss and a $270.51
million accumulated deficit.

"Our liabilities exceed our assets which makes refinancing our
debt more difficult and expensive.  Operating cash flow is
insufficient to repay the Secured and Unsecured Notes at maturity,
which raises substantial doubt as to the Company's ability to
continue as a going concern," the Company said in the Form 10-Q.

                        Bankruptcy Warning

Management's cash flow projections indicate that absent a
refinancing transaction or series of transactions, the Company
will be unable to pay the principal and accumulated unpaid
interest on its Secured Notes and Unsecured Notes when those
instruments mature in November 2014 and February 2015,
respectively.  On Dec. 24, 2013, Alion entered into an agreement
with the holders of a majority of its Unsecured Notes regarding
certain possible refinancing transactions.

The proposed refinancing transactions involve: replacing Alion's
credit facility; refinancing the Secured Notes with $350 million
in new secured term loans; exchanging our Unsecured Notes for
either new third lien notes and a series of new warrants, or a
limited amount of cash for a portion of Unsecured Notes at a price
below par; payment of accrued and unpaid interest; and obtaining
certain consents from Unsecured Noteholders.

"However, management can provide no assurance that we will be able
to enter into definitive agreements regarding the terms of the
refinancing transactions or conclude a refinancing of our
Unsecured Notes, or that additional financing will be available to
retire or replace our Secured Notes, and if available, that terms
of any transaction would be favorable or compliant with the
conditions for such financing set forth in the Refinancing Support
Agreement.  The Company's high debt levels, of which $332.5
million matures on November 1, 2014 and Alion's recurring losses
will likely make it more difficult for Alion to raise capital on
favorable terms and could hinder its operations.  Further, default
under the Unsecured Note Indenture or the Secured Note Indenture
could allow lenders to declare all amounts outstanding under the
revolving credit facility, the Secured Notes and the Unsecured
Notes to be immediately due and payable.  Any event of default
could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial
condition and operating results if creditors were to exercise
their rights, including proceeding against substantially all of
our assets that secure the Credit Agreement and the Secured Notes,
and will likely require us to invoke insolvency proceedings
including, but not limited to, a voluntary case under the U.S.
Bankruptcy Code," the Company said in its quarterly report for the
period ended Dec. 31, 2013.

                           *     *     *

As reported by the TCR on March 10, 2014, Standard & Poor's
Ratings Services said it lowered its corporate credit rating on
McLean, Va.-based Alion Science and Technology Corp. to 'CC' from
'CCC+'.  "The ratings downgrade reflects a capital structure that
matures within 12 months, a currently 'weak' liquidity assessment,
which we revised from 'less than adequate', and our expectation
that we would classify an exchange offer or similar restructuring
undertaken by Alion as distressed," said Standard & Poor's credit
analyst Martha Toll-Reed.


ALLIED IRISH: European Commission Approves Restructuring Plan
-------------------------------------------------------------
AIB welcomes the decision by the European Commission that it has
given final approval under State Aid rules to AIB's Restructuring
Plan.

In arriving at its final decision, the European Commission
acknowledged the significant number of restructuring measures
previously implemented by AIB comprising business divestments,
asset deleveraging, Liability Management Exercises and significant
cost reduction actions.  The restructuring plan covers the period
from 2014 to 2017 and a summary of the principal commitments
required to be given by AIB include:

   * Commitment not to make any material acquisitions until the
     end of the restructuring period.

   * Commitment in respect of non-payment of discretionary coupons
     on capital instruments issued prior to today's decision.

   * Commitment in respect of cost reductions relative to income
     until Dec. 31, 2015.

   * A limitation on AIB's total holdings of Irish Sovereign bonds
     during the restructuring period, excluding those bonds issued
     by NAMA.

   * Restructuring of the loan portfolios of customers who are in
     financial difficulty, based on economic and commercial
     criteria.

   * Commitment in respect of repayment of State Aid prior to the
     end of the restructuring period subject to operating
     performance, regulatory capital requirements and regulatory
     approval.

   * Commitments to operate certain competition measures for a
     period of three years.

These measures apply over various timeframes between now and
December 2017.

Chief Executive Officer David Duffy said, "AIB welcomes today's
announcement by the European Commission in relation to the Bank's
Restructuring Plan approval.  AIB has made significant progress
and has successfully implemented a number of restructuring
measures as the bank progresses with its aim of returning to
profitability this year.  The commitments as outlined are in line
with our existing operational plans.  The Bank remains focused on
delivering against its strategic objectives, while supporting the
ongoing recovery of the Irish economy."

voting ("CNV") shares and 3.5 billion 2009 Preference Shares.  On
April 8, 2011, the NPRFC converted the total outstanding amount of
CNV shares into 10,489,899,564 ordinary shares of AIB, thereby
increasing its holding to 92.8% of the ordinary share capital.

In addition to its shareholders' interests, the Government's
relationship with AIB is reflected through formal and informal
oversight by the Minister and the Department of Finance and the
Central Bank of Ireland, representation on the Board of Directors
(three non-executive directors are Government nominees),
participation in NAMA, and otherwise.

AIB reported a loss of EUR1.59 billion in 2013, a loss of EUR3.55

billion on EUR1.10 billion of net interest income in 2012.  Allied
Irish incurred a net loss of $2.32 billion in 2011.


ALTEGRITY INC: Moody's Affirms 'Caa2' Corporate Family Rating
-------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service affirmed Altegrity, Inc.'s (Altegrity)
Caa2 corporate family rating (CFR) and the ratings for its
existing debt instruments. Moody's also downgraded Altegrity's
probability of default rating (PDR) to Ca-PD from Caa2-PD,
reflecting elevated probability of default in the near term in
light of the company's announcement of a recapitalization plan.

Ratings Rationale

Moody's will consider Altegrity's exchange offers under the
proposed recapitalization plan announced on May 5, 2014 as
distressed exchanges for its senior unsecured and senior
subordinated debts. Moody's will append Altegrity's probability of
default rating with an "/LD" designation at the close of the debt
exchanges indicating limited default, which will be removed after
three business days. Moody's expects Altegrity's CFR to remain at
Caa2 and the PDR to be revised to Caa2-PD at the close of the
recapitalization. Although debt balances and interest expense will
increase slightly under the recapitalization plan, extension of
debt maturities will allow management additional time to address
the company's weak operating performance.

Moody's analyst Raj Joshi said, "The widening gap between
Altegrity's earnings and debt liabilities will continue to
pressure its credit profile over the intermediate term." The Caa2
CFR reflects Altegrity's elevated risk of debt impairment due to
its unsustainable leverage and execution risk in management's plan
to turn around revenues and EBTIDA amid challenges in the
company's Kroll and USIS business segments. Altegrity's total debt
to EBITDA is estimated at over 9.0x. However, if the company
successfully executes the recapitalization, it should have
adequate liquidity for the intermediate term consisting of over
$100 million in cash balances and access to funds under a new
revolving credit facility of $50 million or higher. If EBITDA
rebounds from its current levels Moody's expects Altegrity to
generate modestly positive free cash flow because a portion of
interest expense will be non-cash PIK interest.

Separately, the company is also seeking a 60-day waiver of the
senior secured leverage covenant that it would have breached for
the reporting period ended on March 31, 2014, to allow time to
execute the recapitalization.

The stable ratings outlook reflects Altegrity's adequate cash
balances for the short term and Moody's expectations of moderating
year-over-year declines in EBITDA.

Moody's could downgrade Altegrity's corporate family rating if
liquidity deteriorates, earnings declines do not moderate, or
Moody's assessment of recovery at default declines. Moody's could
raise Altegrity's ratings if the company's liquidity strengthens,
debt maturities are lengthened and improving earnings lead to a
meaningful improvement in credit metrics.

Moody's has taken the following ratings actions:

Issuer: Altegrity, Inc.

Ratings affirmed (and Loss Given Default Assessments revised):

Corporate Family Rating - Caa2

$75 million senior secured revolver due 11/21/14 -- B3
(LGD2, 27%)

$1,385 (currently $1,023) million senior secured term loans
due 2/21/15 -- B3 (LGD2, 27%)

$290 million 10.5% senior unsecured notes due 11/1/15 -- Caa3
(LGD3, 35%, revised from LGD5, 77%)

$210 million 12% senior unsecured notes due 11/1/2015 -- Caa3
(LGD3, 35%, revised from LGD5, 77%)

$150 million 11.75% senior sub notes due 5/1/16 -- Ca (LGD4,
65%, revised from LGD6, 92%)

Ratings downgraded:

Probability of Default Rating -- Ca-PD, from Caa2-PD

AMERICAN AIRLINES: Beats Bondholders in Court Appeal
----------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reported that the U.S. Supreme Court has refused to hear an appeal
by bondholders seeking a premium from American Airlines Group Inc.
for the carrier's early repayment of what were originally $1.2
billion in aircraft bonds.

Bloomberg related that in September, the U.S. Court of Appeals in
Manhattan upheld a bankruptcy court's ruling that the airline
could skip the "make-whole" fee even though it would have been a
valid debt outside bankruptcy. By avoiding the fee through a
Chapter 11 plan, the airline was able to refinance bonds at a
lower interest rate, saving $200 million, the company had said.

In February, the bondholders' indenture trustee asked the Supreme
Court to grant an appeal, the report said.  On April 21, the high
court refused, and as is the custom, the justices didn't give a
reason.

The high court case was U.S. Bank Trust NA v. AMR Corp., 13-971,
U.S Supreme Court (Washington).


AMERICAN APPAREL: 1832 Asset Mgt. Holds 6.6% Equity Stake
---------------------------------------------------------
In a Schedule 13G filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange
Commission, 1832 Asset Management L.P., disclosed that as of
April 30, 2014, it beneficially owned 11,509,433 common shares
of American Apparel, Inc., representing 6.63 percent of the shares
outstanding.  A copy of the regulatory filing is available for

                     About American Apparel

Los Angeles, Calif.-based American Apparel, Inc. (NYSE Amex: APP)
-- http://www.americanapparel.com/-- is a vertically integrated
manufacturer, distributor, and retailer of branded fashion basic
apparel.  As of September 2010, American Apparel employed over
10,000 people and operated 278 retail stores in 20 countries,
including the United States, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, United
Kingdom, Ireland, Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, the
Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Israel, Australia, Japan,
South Korea and China.

Amid liquidity problems and declining sales, American Apparel in
early 2011 reportedly tapped law firm Skadden, Arps, Slate,
Meagher & Flom and investment bank Rothschild Inc. for advice on a
restructuring.

In April 2011, American Apparel said it raised $14.9 million in
rescue financing from a group of investors led by Canadian
financier Michael Serruya and private equity firm Delavaco Capital
Corp., allowing the casual clothing retailer to meet obligations
to its lenders for the time being.  Under the deal, the investors
were buying 15.8 million shares of common stock at 90 cents
apiece.  The deal allows the investors to purchase additional
27.4 million shares at the same price.

The Company incurred a net loss of $37.27 million in 2012, as
compared with a net loss of $39.31 million in 2011.  The Company's
balance sheet at Sept. 30, 2013, showed $332.93 million in total
assets, $389.12 million in total liabilities and a $56.19 million
total stockholders' deficit.

                           *     *     *

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on Feb. 26, 2014,
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its corporate credit
rating to 'CCC' from 'B-' on Los Angeles-based American Apparel
Inc.  The outlook is developing.

The Troubled Company Reporter, on Nov. 21, 2013, reported that
American Apparel Inc. had its corporate family rating cut one
level to Caa2 by Moody's Investors Service.  The clothing
retailer's probability of default was also lowered one level and
the outlook is negative.


AMERICAN RESIDENTIAL: S&P Puts 'B-' CCR on CreditWatch Positive
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services placed all of its ratings on
American Residential Services LLC, including its 'B-' corporate
credit rating on CreditWatch with positive implications.

The CreditWatch placement follows the company's recent
announcement that it has been acquired by financial sponsor firm
Charlesbank Capital Partners.  "While terms of the transaction and
plans for the company's capital structure under new ownership are
not known, the company could benefit from the investment of new
capital," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Linda Phelps.
"Management's ownership stake will continue to be meaningful and
we do not anticipate immediate changes to the senior management
team."

Standard & Poor's could affirm its ratings on American Residential
Services if the capital structure under new ownership continues to
be "highly leveraged," including debt-to-EBITDA leverage of over
5x.  Alternatively, S&P could raise its ratings if it believes the
company's leverage will be sustainable below 5x and remain in line
with its "aggressive" financial risk profile.  S&P could also
consider raising its ratings one-notch if it believes the
company's business risk profile has strengthened.

S&P will resolve the CreditWatch listing for American Residential
Services once it has greater clarity regarding the company's
financing plans and post-transaction capital structure.  S&P's
review will also focus on the company's business strategies and
financial policy under new ownership.


ANACOR PHARMACEUTICALS: Incurs $21.2 Million Net Loss in Q1

Financial Corp.'s Plan of Liquidation stating that the protective
clauses in the Disclosure Statement and Plan essentially provide a
discharge for non-debtor entities in violation of the Bankruptcy
Code.

The U.S. Trustee said the Court must deny approval of the
Disclosure Statement unless the protective clauses are removed,
certain exculpation, releases and injunction provision that are
proposed for the benefit of several parties.

The Court will convene a hearing on May 14, at 10:00 a.m., to
consider adequacy of information in the Disclosure Statement.

In a separate filing, the Official Committee of Unsecured
Creditors raised certain issues and concerns it has with the terms
of the Debtor's proposed Disclosure Statement and Plan.

The Committee is optimistic that most if not all of the concerns
will be resolved prior to the hearing on the Disclosure Statement.

According to the Committee, its counsel and the Debtor's counsel
have exchanged multiple communications discussing the Committee's
comments and concerns.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on April 15, 2014,
under the Plan, Class 1 consists of secured tax claims, which
consists primarily of claims of property taxes on the various real
estate parcels owned by the Debtor.  Class 2 is a secured claim of
Residential Credit Solutions, which holds a senior secured lien
against the Ostin Property, which property is now owned by the
Debtor.  Class 3 is a general class created for secured claims
against any additional real estate that the Debtor acquires
through foreclosure prior to confirmation of the Plan.

Commercial Paper Account Holders are treated in one or more of
four classes, i.e. Classes 4, 5, 6 and 7.  Class 8 is the existing
shareholders who will receive no distribution under the Plan on
account of their shares of stock.

The sources of all distributions and payments under the Plan will
be, among others:

   1. available cash;

   2. net sale proceeds of the real estate assets; and

   3. plan reserves;

The Plan also provides that once the liquidation Debtor has sold
the assets and real estate assets, the Plan Administrator has
fully performed its duties and made all distributions under the
Plan, Bay Area may be dissolved for all purposes.

BAY AREA FIN'L: May Sell Bank Shares & Woodland Hills Property
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Thomas Donahue of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Central District of California authorized Bay Area Financial
Corporation's immediate private sale of 1,710 shares of stock of
the Bank of San Francisco to Dilan Desai for $12.95 per share.

The 1,710 shares of Bank of San Francisco stock are currently held
by the Debtor.

The Court also ordered that any and all subsequent private sale(s)
for all or a portion of the remaining 18,290 shares of the Bank's
stock is authorized and approved without further notice or order
of Court, provided that any such subsequent sale is at a price of
not less than $10 per share.

Counsel for the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors will be
entitled to 10 business days' electronic notice of any and all
subsequent private sale(s) for all or a portion of the remaining
18,290 shares of the Bank's stock.

The private sale to the purchaser and all subsequent private sales
of the Bank stock is authorized "as is" and no "warranties."

In a separate ruling, the Bankruptcy Court authorized Bay Area
Financial to sell its residential real property at 5734 Ostin
Avenue, Woodland Hills, California 91367, free and clear of all
liens.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on April 11, 2014,
the Debtor said that the property is not occupied and the Debtor
is not deriving any income from the property at the time.

The Debtor entered into an agreement for the sale of the Property
to the Meko Family Trust for $670,000, payable as: (i) deposit in
escrow $50,000; and (ii) balance of cash into escrow $660,000.

Upon the close of escrow, real estate brokerage commissions in the
amount of $33,500 or 5% of the purchase price are to be paid.  The
commission will be split 50/50 between the Debtor's real estate
broker Keller Williams Realty and the Purchaser's real estate
agent California Prime Realty.  Unpaid property taxes on the
Property will be paid through escrow.

The closing date of the sale is contemplated to be within 11 days
of the date on which the court order approving the sale of the
Property is entered.  The sale is subject to overbids.  Parties
wishing to participate in the overbid process must present to the
Debtor, five business days prior to the hearing of the sale
motion, a $60,000 good faith deposit, among other things.

Greenpoint Mortgage Funding Inc. currently holds a first priority
lien on the Property in the approximate amount of $368,000.

BAY AREA FIN'L: Wants Lombardo Hiring Effective March 2014
----------------------------------------------------------
Bay Area Financial Corporation amended its application to employ
Lombardo & Safford, LLP as special counsel effective as of
March 9, 2014.

In its previous application, the Debtor sought permission to
employ Lombardo & Safford nunc pro tunc to Dec. 9, 2013.

The Debtor, in its amended motion, explained that prior to the
Petition Date, Lombardo acted as general counsel to the Debtor in
several state court matters ranging from litigation to collection
to lease and sale negotiations.  A principal of L&S, Vincent J.
Lombardo, is a former officer of the Debtor, having held the title
of secretary.  Mr. Lombardo is also a creditor of the Debtor,
holding a general unsecured claim in the amount of $73,452 as a
commercial account note holder.

Out of the abundance of caution, and because Mr. Lombardo, not
L&S, was a creditor of the creditor of the Debtor as of the
Petition Date, the Debtor seeks the employment of L&S as special
counsel to the Debtor based on L&S' representation of the Debtor
prior to the Petition Date and on the grounds that it is in the
best interest of the debtor that L&S continue on with its
representation of the Debtor.

L&S will timely file a proof of claim for prepetition fees and
cost.  L&S has incurred $6,601 and cost of $0 postpetition.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on April 25, 2014,
the U.S. Trustee objected to the application to hire Lombardo &
Safford LLP as special counsel nunc pro tunc to the Petition Date.

Queenie K. Ng, Esq., as trial attorney for the U.S. Trustee,
pointed out that as per the employment application, the proposed
special counsel incurred fees totaling $31,080 postpetition and
yet the Debtor waited almost four months after the Petition Date
to file the employment application.

She asserted that the proposed special counsel provided no reason
for the delay in the employment application.  Since there is no
good cause for delay and no extraordinary circumstances,
retroactive relief should not be granted in the case, she
maintained.

Ms. Ng added that the employment application do not specify
whether proposed special counsel is seeking compensation under
Sec. 328 or 330 as required under the Local Bankruptcy Rules.

Moreover, Ms. Ng said, the proposed counsel is not disinterested.
She cited that Mr. Lombardo is also an officer of the Debtor, and
that Mr. Lombardo is also a creditor of the Debtor with a $73,452
general unsecured claim.

Accordingly, the U.S. Trustee asked the Court to deny the
employment application until his concerns are addressed.

The TCR reported on April 16, 2014, the Debtor required Lombardo &
Safford to provide legal services with respect to the collection
of delinquent loans, any loan transactions, foreclosures, and
corporate documentation.  Lombardo & Safford will provide those
legal services reasonably required to represent the Debtor's
interests with respect to the legal matters.  Counsel will also
take reasonable steps to keep the Debtor informed of the progress
of the matter and to respond to the Debtor's inquiries in a timely
fashion.

Mr. Lombardo, Esq., who will lead the engagement, bills $385 per
hour.

Lombardo & Safford will also be reimbursed for reasonable out-of-
pocket expenses incurred.

Mr. Lombardo 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 Debtors and their estates.

BAY AREA FIN'L: Wants Solicitation Period Extended Until Aug. 11
----------------------------------------------------------------
Bay Area Financial Corporation asks the Bankruptcy Court to extend
its exclusive period to solicit acceptances for its Plan of
Reorganization from June 9, 2014, until Aug. 11.

The Debtor said that it has completed a draft of the plan and
initial draft of a disclosure statement within the first 60 days
of the case.  The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors has
requested several revisions to the draft.  In addition, the Debtor
was required to revise the draft of the plan to provide the Plan
Administrator with the option of making two payments, instead of
just one in case the cash (after factoring appropriate reserves)
as of the confirmation is not sufficient to make the required
payment when the Plan is confirmed after all the elections to be
cashed-out are calculated.

The Debtor explains that the additional time is necessary to
ensure that it is able to present a comprehensive Plan with
consensual terms.

BAY CLUB PARTNERS: Survives Legg Mason's Case Dismissal Bid
-----------------------------------------------------------
Oregon Bankruptcy Judge Randall L. Dunn denied the request of
secured creditor Legg Mason Real Estate CDO I, Ltd., to dismiss
Bay Club Partners-472, LLC's.  The Court held that Bay Club's
manager had the authority under Section 4.1 of the Operating
Agreement to initiate a chapter 11 case on Bay Club's behalf, and
that Bay Club's bankruptcy filing was properly authorized.

Legg Mason filed the motion to dismiss on March 6, 2014, arguing
that Bay Club's LLC operating agreement prohibited it from filing
for bankruptcy protection, and Bay Club's manager further was not
authorized to file for bankruptcy protection without the
affirmative votes of 100% of the LLC members.

Trail Ranch Partners, LLC, a 20% member owner in Bay Club, joined
in the Motion to Dismiss.  Trail Ranch's joinder initially was
filed by Leonard Brown, its Managing Member, but ultimately, Trail
Ranch filed a joinder motion by counsel.  Trails Ranch said it did
not consent to the filing of the bankruptcy petition.

Bay Club filed an opposition to the Motion to Dismiss.

Legg Mason's predecessor in interest loaned Bay Club $23,600,000,
evidenced by a promissory note dated Nov. 15, 2005, to acquire a
large apartment complex in Mesa, Arizona.  Repayment of the Loan
is secured by a deed of trust on the Property.

The Loan terms were modified four times, ultimately resulting in
the principal balance of the Note being increased to $24,000,000
and the maturity date being extended to March 1, 2014. However, by
early 2014, negotiations for further forbearance and modifications
with respect to the Loan between Bay Club and Legg Mason
apparently broke down.  On Jan. 17, 2014, Bay Club received a
notice of default on the Loan obligation from Legg Mason, and Legg
Mason offset against the Loan debt Bay Club's reserve accounts for
taxes, insurance and capital expenses for the Property in an
amount totaling $345,006.68.

stockholders of $9.17 million on $7.56 million of revenue in 2012.
As of Dec. 31, 2013, the Company had $2.83 million in total
assets, $2.23 million in total liabilities and $608,331 in total
stockholders' equity.

EisnerAmper LLP, in New York, issued a "going concern"
qualification on the consolidated financial statements for the
year ended Dec. 31, 2013.  The independent auditors noted that the
Company has sustained recurring losses and negative cash flows
from operations, and has a working capital deficiency and a
stockholders' deficiency that raise substantial doubt about its
ability to continue as a going concern.

reported beneficial ownership of 30,070 common shares at June 20,
2013.

Pursuant to the Agreement and Plan of Merger dated as of March 5,
2014, by and among BOnds.com Group, MTS Markets International,
Inc., an affiliate of the London Stock Exchange Group, and MMI
Newco Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of MTS, on May 8, 2014,

BRIGHT HORIZONS: S&P Revises Outlook to Pos. & Affirms 'B+' CCR
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services revised the outlook to positive
from stable and affirmed its 'B+' corporate credit rating on
Watertown, Mass.-based childcare center operator Bright Horizons
Family Solutions LLC.

At the same time, S&P revised the recovery rating on the company's
senior secured credit facilities to '2', indicating its
expectation of substantial (70%-90%) recovery in the event of a
payment default, from '3' (50%-70% recovery expectation).  S&P
raised its issue-level rating on this debt to 'BB-' from 'B+'.

The recovery rating revision reflects S&P's expectation of
slightly better recovery prospects under its simulated default
scenario.

"The outlook revision reflects our expectation that the business
outlook will remain favorable, at least over the next couple of
years, which should result in a continued reduction in debt
leverage despite the company's active acquisition orientation,"
said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Hal Diamond.

The 'B+' corporate credit rating reflects S&P's assessment of the
business risk profile as "fair" and the financial risk profile as
"aggressive."  The company's "fair" business risk profile reflects
S&P's assessment of its niche market position in employer-
sponsored centers, some sensitivity of capacity utilization rates
to high unemployment, and highly competitive conditions in the
fragmented child care business.  Despite being the largest U.S.
provider of employer-sponsored, workplace-based childcare, five
times larger than its nearest competitor, Bright Horizons is a
small-to-midsize company.  Bright Horizons' size allows clustering
and economies of scale in marketing and management, and allows for
higher EBITDA margins than its competitors.  Also, the company's
growing higher-margin backup childcare business, which accounts
for over one-third of EBITDA, provides some revenue visibility
with multi-year contracts, a diverse group of employers, and
steady demand.


BROADVIEW NETWORKS: Incurs $3.1 Million Net Loss in First Quarter
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Broadview Networks Holdings, Inc., filed with the U.S. Securities
and Exchange Commission its quarterly report on Form 10-Q
disclosing a net loss of $3.06 million on $77.61 million of
revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2014, as compared
with a net loss of $2.36 million on $80.80 million of revenues for
the same period in 2013.

The Company's balance sheet at March 31, 2014, showed $210.20
million in total assets, $205.06 million in total liabilities and
$5.14 million in total stockholders' equity.

Ernst & Young LLP, in New York, N.Y., issued a "going concern"
qualification on the consolidated financial statements for the
year ended Dec. 31, 2011.  The independent auditors noted that the
Company has in excess of $300 million of debt due on or before
September 2012.  "In addition, the Company has incurred net losses
and has a net stockholders' deficiency."

The Company reported a net loss of $11.9 million for 2011,
compared with a net loss of $18.8 million for 2010.

                           *     *     *

In the July 23, 2012, edition of the Troubled Company Reporter,
Moody's Investors Service downgraded Broadview Networks Holdings,
Inc. Corporate Family Rating (CFR) to Caa3 from Caa2 and the
Probability of Default Rating (PDR) to Ca from Caa3 in response to
the company's announcement that it has entered into a
restructuring support agreement with holders of roughly 70% of its
preferred stock and roughly 66-2/3% of its Senior Secured Notes.
The company is expected to file a pre-packaged Chapter 11 Plan of
Reorganization or complete an out of court exchange offer.

As reported by the TCR on July 25, 2012, Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services lowered its corporate credit rating on Broadview to 'D'
from 'CC'.  "This action follows the company's announced extension
on its revolving credit facility.  We expect to lower the issue-
level rating on the notes to 'D' once the company files for
bankruptcy, or if it misses the Sept. 1, 2012 maturity payment on
the notes," S&P said.


BROOKSTONE HOLDINGS: Objections to KERP Filed
---------------------------------------------
BankruptcyData reported that the U.S. Trustee assigned to the
Brookstone case filed the U.S. Bankruptcy Court an objection to
the Debtors' motion for entry of an order authorizing
implementation of a key employee retention plan (KERP) and key
employee incentive plan (KEIP).

BData relates that the objection explains, "Debtors seek approval
of a key employee incentive plan (the 'KEIP') that provides for
bonus compensation to four Key Executives all of whom appear to be
insiders of the Debtors' while simultaneously seeking approval of
a key employee retention plan (the 'KERP') for thirty-three non-
insider Key Employees. Pursuant to Section 503(c)(1) of the
Bankruptcy Code, bonus payments to insiders of the type sought in
the KEIP are subject to a strict standard if they are for the
purpose of inducing those key executives to remain with the
Debtors' business. In these cases, the Debtors have yet to
demonstrate that the KEIP complies with Section 503(c)(1). In
fact, the KEIP appears to be primarily retentive because the
bonuses disincentivize the Key Executives since the level of
proceeds from the stalking horse sale of the Debtors' stock
guarantees that each of the Key Executives will, without doing
anything more to find other bidders, receive a substantial bonus.
Moreover, the stalking horse agreement was negotiated prior to the
filing of the Chapter 11 cases. Thus the KEIP program appears to
be primarily designed to induce each insider to remain with the
Debtors through the Chapter 11 sale process. Because the KEIP
bonus plan is actually a key employee retention plan, the Debtors
must satisfy the requirements of section 503(c)(1) of the
Bankruptcy Code. As outlined below, the Debtors have not met this
burden. In addition, bonus payments under Section 503(c)(3) must
be actual and necessary, and the Debtors must demonstrate to the
Court that the payments are justified by the Debtors have not
satisfied their burden under applicable law to justify the
payments under Section 503(c)(3) either the KEIP or the KERP."

The U.S. Trustee also filed an objection to the Debtors' motion to
file under seal Schedules A and B to Exhibit 1 of the Incentive
Plan motion.  According to BData, the objection explains, "There
is no indication or evidence that Schedules A and/or B contain
proprietary or confidential commercial information, trade secrets,
or that the disclosure of the information relating to the bonuses
or the job titles of those who are bonus plan participants may
expose a person to scandalous or defamatory matters. In this case,
the information sought to be sealed appears to relate directly to
the Debtors' financial operations and relevant to an
administrative expense to be incurred in these cases. Any
personally identifiable information, as defined under 11 U.S.C.
101(41A), may be redacted from the publicly-filed schedules. The
request to seal should be made in accordance with and specifically
tailored to comply with Section 107."

BROOKSTONE HOLDINGS: Bondholders Oppose Financing With Roll-Up
--------------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reported that four bondholders have filed papers in opposition to
a feature of the financing that would convert $30 million of pre-
bankruptcy debt into an obligation owed by the Merrimack, New
Hampshire-based company in Chapter 11.

According to the report, the bondholders say the so-called roll-up
will make their bonds worth only 25% of what they would be
otherwise.  The four bondholders also said they were precluded
from participating in the bankruptcy loan syndicate, the report
related.

The proposed financing includes two term loans, one for $60
million to be used in part to pay off an existing loan from
Wells Fargo Bank NA as agent, the report further related.  The
other will be a new term loan for about $36.3 million.  The second
new term loan includes $6.25 million in new money plus conversion
of the $30 million in the roll-up, the report added.

BUILDERS FIRSTSOURCE: Moody's Hikes Corp. Family Rating to 'B3'
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service upgraded Builders FirstSource, Inc.'s
("BLDR") Corporate Family Rating to B3 from Caa1 and its
Probability of Default Rating to B3-PD from Caa1-PD. The upgrade
reflects our expectation that BLDR's operating performance will
continue to benefit from improved housing construction, repair and
remodeling. Additionally, Moody's upgraded the company's senior
secured notes due 2021 to Caa1 from Caa2. The speculative grade
liquidity rating of SGL-3 is affirmed. The rating outlook is
stable.

The following ratings/assessments are affected by this action:

Corporate Family Rating upgraded to B3 from Caa1;

Probability of Default Rating upgraded to B3-PD from Caa1-PD;

Senior Secured Notes due 2021 upgraded to Caa1 (LGD4, 65%) from
Caa2 (LGD4, 67%); and,

Speculative Grade Liquidity rating affirmed at SGL-3.

Ratings Rationale

The upgrade of BLDR's Corporate Family Rating to B3 from Caa1
reflects Moody's view that the company will continue to benefit
from improved housing construction, a primary revenue source,
since BLDR is a manufacturer and supplier of structural and
related building products. Moody's forecast adjusted EBITDA
margins nearing 6.5% by the end of 2015. BLDR is benefiting from
past cost reductions and greater volumes. As a result, Moody's
project BLDR's interest coverage -- measured as (EBITDA-CAPEX)-to-
interest expense -- will trend towards 2.5x over the next 18
months from 0.9x for LTM 1Q14. Moody's also project leverage
improving to 4.5x by the end of the 2015, compared with 5.9x at
1Q14 (all ratios incorporate Moody's standard adjustments).

The stable rating outlook reflects Moody's expectation that
coverage metrics will remain adequate over the next two years, and
the company will maintain an adequate and gradually improving
liquidity cushion as well. Revolver availability and lack of near-
term maturities give BLDR the financial resources to meet
potential shortfalls in operating cash flows due to higher working
capital needs and to support growth initiatives.

An upgrade of BLDR's ratings is possible if the company continues
to benefit from the rebound in its end markets and generates
significant levels of operating earnings and free cash flow.
Operating performance confirming Moody's  projections that result
in (EBITDA-Capex)-to-interest expense trending towards 2.5x and
debt-to-EBITDA remaining below 4.0x (all ratios incorporate
Moody's standard adjustments), combined with a good liquidity
profile would result in consideration of further upgrade.

Factors that could result in negative rating actions include
operating performance falling below expectations or erosion in the
company's financial performance due to an unexpected decline in
BLDR's end markets. (EBITDA-Capex)-to-interest expense sustained
below 1.5x or debt-to-EBITDA sustained above 6.0x could result in
rating pressures (all ratios incorporate Moody's standard
adjustments). Furthermore, a deteriorating liquidity profile could
facilitate downward pressure on the ratings.

Builders FirstSource, Inc., headquartered in Dallas, Texas,
manufactures and supplies structural and related building products
for primarily the domestic residential new construction sector.
Its products include prefabricated components, windows and
exterior doors, lumber and lumber sheet goods, millwork products,
and other building products and services. JLL Partners and Warburg
Pincus (collectively "Sponsors"), through their respective
affiliates, own in aggregate approximately 50% of BLDR. Revenues
for the 12 months through March 31, 2014 totaled approximately
$1.5 billion.

The principal methodology used in this rating was the Global
Distribution & Supply Chain Services published in November 2011.
Other methodologies used include Loss Given Default for
Speculative-Grade Non-Financial Companies in the U.S., Canada and
EMEA published in June 2009.


CAESARS ENTERTAINMENT: Amends Current Report on Tender Offers
-------------------------------------------------------------
Caesars Entertainment and Operating Company, Inc., On May 6, 2014,
filed a current report on Form 8-K with the U.S. Securities and
Exchange Commission to report, among other things, that Caesars
Entertainment Operating Company, Inc., will launch cash tender
offers for certain of its outstanding notes.  The Company amended
the Current Report to restate the section entitled "Repayment of
2015 Maturities" in Item 7.01 of the Report to correct a
typographical error regarding the maturity date of the 10.00%
Second-Priority Senior Secured Notes due 2015, which is 2015 and
not 2018 as previously reported.  The press release related to the
cash tender offers incorporated by reference into the Report
correctly stated the maturity date of the 10.00% Notes.  Except
for the foregoing, this Amendment No. 1 does not modify or update
any other disclosure contained in the Report.

Repayment of 2015 Maturities

On May 6, 2014, Caesars Entertainment issued a press release
announcing that CEOC will launch cash tender offers for any and
all of its 5.625 percent Senior Notes due 2015 and any and all of
its 10.00 percent Second-Priority Senior Secured Notes due 2015,
subject to financing and other conditions.

The press release also announced that in connection with the
tender offers, on May 5, 2014, CEOC entered into note purchase
agreements with a significant third-party holder and a subsidiary
of Growth Partners to purchase from the Selling Holders
approximately $746.4 million in aggregate principal amount
(representing approximately 94.3%) of the 5.625% Notes for a
purchase price of $1,048.75 per $1,000 principal amount, and
approximately $108.7 million in aggregate principal amount
(representing approximately 50.6%) of the 10.00% Notes for a
purchase price of $1,022.50 per $1,000 principal amount.  The
closing of the Note Purchases is conditioned upon, among other
things, CEOC receiving sufficient amount of net cash proceeds from
the issuance of the Incremental Term Loans to refinance all of its
existing indebtedness that matures in 2015.  In addition, in
respect of the purchase of notes held by a subsidiary of Growth
Partners, Growth Partners has agreed to reinvest all of the
proceeds received from such purchase in the Incremental Term
Loans.

Caesars Entertainment Corporation disclosed information which was
provided on May 7, 2014, to lenders in connection with Caesars
Growth Properties Holdings, LLC's previously announced $700
million of term loans which closed on May 5, 2014.  CGPH is an
indirect subsidiary of Caesars Growth Partners, LLC, which is a
joint venture between Caesars Acquisition Company and Caesars
Entertainment.  A copy of the Disclosure Material is available for

three continents, more than 25,000 hotel rooms, two million square
feet of casino space and 50,000 employees.  Caesars casino resorts

Hilton and Paris brand names.  The Company has its corporate
headquarters in Las Vegas.

Harrah's announced its re-branding to Caesar's on mid-November
2010.

The Company incurred a net loss of $1.49 billion on $8.58 billion
of net revenues for the year ended Dec. 31, 2012, as compared with
a net loss of $666.70 million on $8.57 billion of net revenues
during the prior year.  The Company's balance sheet at Sept. 30,
2013, showed $26.09 billion in total assets, $27.59 billion in
total liabilities and a $1.49 billion total deficit.

                           *     *     *

Caesars Entertainment carries a 'CCC' long-term issuer default
rating, with negative outlook, from Fitch and a 'Caa1' corporate
family rating with negative outlook from Moody's Investors
Service.

As reported in the TCR on Feb. 5, 2013, Moody's Investors Service
lowered the Speculative Grade Liquidity rating of Caesars
Entertainment Corporation to SGL-3 from SGL-2, reflecting
declining revolver availability and Moody's concerns that Caesars'
earnings and cash flow will remain under pressure causing the
company's negative cash flow to worsen.

In the May 7, 2013, edition of the TCR, Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services said that it lowered its corporate credit ratings on Las
Vegas-based Caesars Entertainment Corp. (CEC) and wholly owned
subsidiary Caesars Entertainment Operating Co. (CEOC) to 'CCC+'
from 'B-'.

"The downgrade reflects weaker-than-expected operating performance
in the first quarter, and our view that Caesars' capital structure
may be unsustainable over the next two years based on our EBITDA
forecast for the company," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst
Melissa Long.


CAESARS ENTERTAINMENT: Incurs $386.4 Million Net Loss in Q1

billion of net revenues for the same period in 2013.

The Company's balance sheet at March 31, 2014, showed $24.37
billion in total assets, $26.65 billion in total liabilities and a
$2.27 billion total deficit.

"Las Vegas remained a bright spot with strength in the hospitality
categories, but regional business trends were unfavorably impacted
by extreme weather and softness in visitation in the first
quarter," said Gary Loveman, chairman, chief executive officer and
president of Caesars Entertainment Corporation.  "Strategic
investments in Las Vegas over the last few years are beginning to
bear fruit, with The LINQ and High Roller positively impacting
volume and visitation trends at the Company's surrounding
properties.  As additional assets come on-line later this year and
into 2015, we are excited about Caesars' prospects in Las Vegas.
We are also looking forward to developing an integrated resort in
South Korea with our partners there, a promising market given its
proximity to China."

-- http://www.caesars.com/-- is one of the world's largest casino
companies, with annual revenue of $4.2 billion, 20 properties on
three continents, more than 25,000 hotel rooms, two million square
feet of casino space and 50,000 employees.  Caesars casino resorts

Hilton and Paris brand names.  The Company has its corporate
headquarters in Las Vegas.

Harrah's announced its re-branding to Caesar's on mid-November
2010.

The Company incurred a net loss of $1.49 billion on $8.58 billion
of net revenues for the year ended Dec. 31, 2012, as compared with
a net loss of $666.70 million on $8.57 billion of net revenues
during the prior year.

Caesars Entertainment carries a 'CCC' long-term issuer default
rating, with negative outlook, from Fitch and a 'Caa1' corporate
family rating with negative outlook from Moody's Investors
Service.

As reported in the TCR on Feb. 5, 2013, Moody's Investors Service
lowered the Speculative Grade Liquidity rating of Caesars
Entertainment Corporation to SGL-3 from SGL-2, reflecting
declining revolver availability and Moody's concerns that Caesars'
earnings and cash flow will remain under pressure causing the
company's negative cash flow to worsen.

In the May 7, 2013, edition of the TCR, Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services said that it lowered its corporate credit ratings on Las
Vegas-based Caesars Entertainment Corp. (CEC) and wholly owned
subsidiary Caesars Entertainment Operating Co. (CEOC) to 'CCC+'
from 'B-'.

"The downgrade reflects weaker-than-expected operating performance
in the first quarter, and our view that Caesars' capital structure
may be unsustainable over the next two years based on our EBITDA
forecast for the company," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst
Melissa Long.


CAESARS ENTERTAINMENT: Bank Debt Trades at 5% Off
-------------------------------------------------
Participations in a syndicated loan under which Caesars
Entertainment Inc. is a borrower traded in the secondary market at
93.41 cents-on-the-dollar during the week ended Friday, May 9,
2014, according to data compiled by LSTA/Thomson Reuters MTM
Pricing and reported in The Wall Street Journal.  This represents
an increase of 1.52 percentage points from the previous week, The
Journal relates.  Caesars Entertainment Inc. pays 525 basis points
above LIBOR to borrow under the facility.  The bank loan matures
on Jan. 1, 2018, and carries Moody's B3 rating and Standard &
Poor's B- rating.  The loan is one of the biggest gainers and
losers among 205 widely quoted syndicated loans with five or more
bids in secondary trading for the week ended Friday.


CAESARS ENTERTAINMENT: S&P Assigns 'CCC-' Rating to $1.75BB Loan
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned Las Vegas-based
Caesars Entertainment Operating Co. Inc.'s (CEOC) proposed $1.75
billion term B-7 loan (CEOC is a majority owned subsidiary of
Caesars Entertainment Corp.) our 'CCC-' issue-level rating (at the
same level as S&P's corporate credit rating on the company), with
a recovery rating of '3', indicating S&P's expectation for
meaningful (50%-70%) recovery for lenders in the event of a
payment default.

The company will use proceeds from the proposed term loan to repay
debt, including $829 million of first-lien debt.  This transaction
slightly lowers recovery prospects for first-lien creditors
because the company is issuing incremental first-lien debt and
using about $1 billion in proceeds to repay second-lien notes and
senior notes due 2015.  As a result, S&P believes recovery
prospects for first-lien creditors are at the very low end of the
50% to 70% range.  Any subsequent meaningful first-lien debt
issuance that the company does not use to fully repay existing
first-lien debt would likely result in a revision of CEOC's first-
lien recovery rating.

In S&P's opinion, this transaction does not reduce the likelihood
that Caesars will pursue a restructuring of CEOC's debt
obligations of some form over the next year.  While this
transaction improves the company's maturity profile, it does not
improve leverage or coverage.  CEOC's capital structure remains
unsustainable, and we expect the company to use more than $1
billion in cash in 2014.

S&P believes this currently proposed capital raise, amendment to
its credit agreement, and Caesars Entertainment Corp.'s (CEC) sale
of 5% of equity in CEOC to release CEC's guarantee of CEOC's
bonds, are additional steps that Caesars is taking to position
itself for a more comprehensive restructuring.  S&P believes the
release of the parent guarantee may incentivize more junior
lenders to participate in a restructuring.  This restructuring
could take the form of exchange offers or debt-for-equity swaps
(following recent management commentary that it could use CEOC
equity for liability management or debt reduction initiatives).
These actions would result in debtholders receiving less than what
S&P deems as full and timely payment, and it would likely lower
the rating if Caesars announces or moves forward with a
restructuring plan.

CANYON COS: S&P Assigns Preliminary 'B' CCR; Outlook Stable
-----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it assigned its 'B'
preliminary corporate credit rating to Canyon Cos. S.a.r.l.  The
outlook is stable.

At the same time, S&P assigned a preliminary 'B+' issue-level
rating to the company's proposed credit facilities (the borrowing
entity of which is GTCR Valor Cos. Inc., an indirect wholly-owned
subsidiary of Canyon).  The $350 million first-lien senior secured
credit facilities consist of a $25 million revolver, $185 million
term loan, and $140 million delayed-draw term loan.  The
preliminary recovery rating is '2', indicating S&P's expectation
for substantial recovery (70%-90%) in the event of a payment
default.

S&P is also assigning a preliminary 'CCC+' issue-level rating to
the company's proposed $75 million second-lien term loan and $40
million second-lien delayed-draw term loan.  The preliminary
recovery rating is '6', indicating S&P's expectation for
negligible recovery (0%-10%) in the event of a payment default.

The company intends to use the proceeds, along with cash on hand
at both Cision and Vocus and an equity contribution from GTCR, to
fund the buyout of the two companies.  The preliminary issue
ratings and expected 'B' corporate credit rating are subject to
receipt and review of final documentation.

"The rating on Canyon reflects our assessment of the company's
'weak' business risk profile, based on our view of the combined
entity's modest position in a narrow and fragmented end market,"
said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Martha Toll-Reed.

The rating also reflects S&P's view of the company's "highly
leveraged" financial risk profile, based on adjusted leverage, pro
forma for the merger and excluding projected cost synergies, in
excess of 6x at fiscal year-end 2013.

S&P's assessment of Canyon's business risk profile as "weak"
reflects its relatively small share in a fragmented global PR
software segment, including larger competitors with significantly
more resources in the global software market.  The company's
substantial base of recurring subscription revenues, expanded
suite of PR software solutions, and lack of customer concentration
partially offset these factors.  S&P's business risk assessment
also incorporates its view of the technology software industry's
"intermediate" risk and the company's "very low" country risk.
Additionally, S&P's assessment of the company's management and
governance is "fair."

The outlook is stable, reflecting S&P's expectation that the
company will be largely successful in integrating the two
companies.  S&P expects Canyon will achieve modest revenue growth
in the near term by expanding its product penetration with
existing customers, and reducing churn.  The rating also
incorporates S&P's expectation that, post-merger, a significant
base of recurring subscription revenues and the realization of
some near-term cost synergies will enable the company to achieve
EBITDA margins in excess of 30% in fiscal 2014.  The current
rating does not incorporate material debt-financed acquisitions.

S&P could lower the rating if a deterioration in customer
retention or lack of new software sales leads to a material
decline in revenues and EBITDA, resulting in leverage in excess of
7x.  S&P could also lower the rating if earnings weakness or
aggressive financial policies lead to less-than-adequate
liquidity, including less than 15% headroom under the financial
covenant.

S&P views an upgrade as unlikely, due to the company's pro-forma
2013 adjusted leverage in excess of 6x.  In addition, S&P's
expectation is for modest operating improvement this year which,
along with the company's private equity ownership, will preclude
sustained deleveraging.

CHRYSLER GROUP: Swings to a Loss on Charges
-------------------------------------------
Christina Rogers, writing for The Wall Street Journal, reported
that Chrysler Group LLC posted a $690 million loss for its first
quarter on expenses related to a debt payment and a charge-to-
earnings stemming from its purchase by Italy's Fiat SpA in
January.

According to the report, the Auburn Hills, Mich., auto maker is
owned by Fiat but still releases its profit and sales separately
as a result of debt requirements. It posted a net profit of $166
million in the same year-ago period. Revenue for the quarter ended
March 31 rose 23% to $19 billion, and world-wide sales were up 10%
to 621,000 units.

Newly renamed parent Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV has revealed a
new five-year plan that aims to vastly expand the U.S. auto
maker's lineup and transform its iconic Jeep brand into a global
player, the report noted.

Its first-quarter performance was dragged down by $1.2 billion in
charges, including a $504 million noncash loss on the payment of a
note issued to a United Auto Workers union health-care trust,
according to the Journal.  The company retired the note in
February and issued new debt with a lower interest rate.

Chrysler also took a $672 million charge to fulfill commitments
made to the UAW as part of a $4.35 billion deal Fiat struck in
January with the union's health-care trust to buy the 41.5% part
of Chrysler it didn't already own, the report said.

                       About Chrysler Group

Chrysler Group LLC, formed in 2009 from a global strategic
alliance with Fiat Group, produces Chrysler, Jeep(R), Dodge, Ram
Truck, Mopar(R) and Global Electric Motorcars (GEM) brand vehicles
and products.  Headquartered in Auburn Hills, Michigan, Chrysler
Group LLC's product lineup features some of the world's most
recognizable vehicles, including the Chrysler 300, Jeep Wrangler
and Ram Truck.  Fiat will contribute world-class technology,
platforms and powertrains for small- and medium-sized cars,
allowing Chrysler Group to offer an expanded product line
including environmentally friendly vehicles.

Chrysler LLC and 24 affiliates on April 30, 2009, sought Chapter
11 protection from creditors (Bankr. S.D.N.Y (Mega-case), Lead
Case No. 09-50002).  The U.S. and Canadian governments provided
Chrysler LLC with $4.5 billion to finance its bankruptcy case.

In connection with the bankruptcy filing, Chrysler reached an
agreement to sell all assets to an alliance between Chrysler and
Italian automobile manufacturer Fiat.  Under the terms approved by
the Bankruptcy Court, the company formerly known as Chrysler LLC
in June 2009, formally sold substantially all of its assets to the
new company, named Chrysler Group LLC.

In January 2014, the American car manufacturer officially became
100% Italian when Fiat Spa completed its deal to purchase the 40%
it did not already own of Chrysler.  Fiat has shared ownership of
Chrysler with the health care fund of the United Automobile
Workers unions since Chrysler emerged from bankruptcy in 209.

                           *     *     *

Standard & Poor's Ratings Services raised its ratings on U.S.-
based auto manufacturer Chrysler Group LLC, including the
corporate credit rating to 'BB-' from 'B+' in mid-January 2014.
The outlook is stable.


CLEAR CHANNEL: Unit Closes Offering of $850 Million Senior Notes
----------------------------------------------------------------
Clear Channel Communications, Inc., announced that CCU Escrow
Corporation, a newly formed Texas corporation (the "Escrow
Issuer"), has closed its previously announced offering of
$850,000,000 in aggregate principal amount of 10.0 percent senior
notes due 2018 in a private offering that was exempt from
registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.  The
offering represented an increase of $450,000,000 from the
previously announced offering size.

Upon the closing of the offering of the Notes, the Escrow Issuer,
which was created solely to issue the Notes, deposited the gross
proceeds of the offering (and CCU deposited an amount sufficient
to pay accrued interest on the Notes through the term of the
escrow) into a segregated escrow account.  On the date on which
certain escrow release conditions are satisfied, including the
substantially concurrent (1) redemption of  approximately $567.1
million aggregate principal amount of CCU's 5.5 percent senior
notes due 2014 and $241 million aggregate principal amount of
CCU's 4.9 percent senior notes due 2015 and (2) assumption of the
Escrow Issuer's obligations under the Notes by CCU, the proceeds
from the Notes will be released from escrow.

No later than 30 days after the closing of the offering of Notes,
CCU intends to issue a 30-day irrevocable notice to redeem
approximately $567.1 million aggregate principal amount of its
2014 legacy notes and $241 million aggregate principal amount of
its 2015 legacy notes.  At the end of the 30-day period, the
escrowed funds will be released and used to redeem the 2014 legacy
notes and the 2015 legacy notes called for redemption, to pay
accrued and unpaid interest to, but not including, the date of
redemption, and to pay the fees and expenses related to this
offering and the redemption of the 2014 legacy notes and the 2015
legacy notes.

Substantially simultaneously with the consummation of the
redemption of the 2014 legacy notes and the 2015 legacy notes, the
Escrow Issuer intends to merge with and into CCU, with CCU
continuing as the surviving corporation.  At the time of, and as a
result of the consummation of the merger, CCU will assume all of
the obligations of the Escrow Issuer under the Notes in the
Assumption.

If the proceeds from the Notes are not released from escrow on or
prior to the date that is 60 days after the issue date of the
Notes, the Escrow Issuer will redeem all of the Notes at 100
percent of the aggregate principal amount thereof, plus accrued
and unpaid interest from the date of issuance of the Notes to, but
not including, the date of redemption.

Until the Assumption is consummated, the Notes will be secured by
a first-priority security interest in the escrow account and all
deposits and investment property therein.  Following the
Assumption, the Notes will be the senior unsecured obligations of
CCU and will not be guaranteed by any of CCU's parent companies or
any of its subsidiaries.

The Notes were offered only to "qualified institutional buyers" in
reliance on the exemption from registration pursuant to Rule 144A
under the Securities Act and to persons outside of the United
States in compliance with Regulation S under the Securities Act.
The Notes have not been registered under the Securities Act, or
the securities laws of any state or other jurisdiction, and may
not be offered or sold in the United States without registration
or an applicable exemption from the Securities Act and applicable
state securities or blue sky laws and foreign securities laws.

                   Registration Rights Agreement

On May 1, 2014, the Company entered into an Exchange and
Registration Rights Agreement with the Escrow Issuer and Goldman,
Sachs & Co., as representative of the several initial purchasers
of the Notes.  Pursuant to the Registration Rights Agreement, the
Company will be required, only in the event that the Assumption is
consummated on or before June 30, 2014, to:

   (i) use its commercially reasonable efforts to file with the
       Securities and Exchange Commission within 210 days after
       the date of the initial issuance of the Notes, a
       registration statement with respect to an offer to exchange
       the Notes for a new issue of debt securities registered
       under the Securities Act, with terms substantially
       identical to those of the Notes;

  (ii) use its commercially reasonable efforts to consummate that
       exchange offer within 270 days after the date of the
       initial issuance of the Notes;

(iii) use its commercially reasonable efforts to commence the
       exchange offer no later than 10 business days after the
       effective time of the registration statement; and (iv) in
       certain circumstances, file a shelf registration statement
       for the resale of the Notes.

Only in the event that the Assumption is consummated on or before
June 30, 2014, if the Company fails to satisfy its registration
obligations under the Registration Rights Agreement, the Company
will be required to pay additional interest to the holders of the
Notes, up to a maximum additional interest rate of up to 0.50
percent per annum.

                      Cancels $130-Mil. Notes

On May 6, 2014, the Company delivered $130,000,000 aggregate
principal amount of 2014 Legacy Notes to the trustee for those
notes for cancellation.  Following the cancellation of those
notes, on May 6, 2014, in compliance with its obligations under
the Escrow Agreement, the Company called for redemption all of the
outstanding 2014 Legacy Notes and 2015 Legacy Notes.  The
redemption date for all of the outstanding 2014 Legacy Notes and
2015 Legacy Notes will be June 6, 2014.  The Company will pay the
make-whole redemption premium to be calculated prior to the
Redemption Date as set forth in the indenture and supplemental
indentures governing the 2014 Legacy Notes and the 2015 Legacy
Notes, as applicable.  That make-whole redemption premium will be

                         Bankruptcy Warning

"If our and our subsidiaries' cash flows from operations,
refinancing sources and other liquidity-generating transactions
are insufficient to fund our respective debt service obligations,
we may be forced to reduce or delay capital expenditures, sell
material assets or operations, or seek additional capital.  We may
not be able to take any of these actions, and these actions may
not be successful or permit us or our subsidiaries to meet the
scheduled debt service obligations.  Furthermore, these actions
may not be permitted under the terms of existing or future debt
agreements."

"The ability to refinance the debt will depend on the condition of
the capital markets and our financial condition at such time.  Any
refinancing of the debt could be at higher interest rates and
increase debt service obligations and may require us and our
subsidiaries to comply with more onerous covenants, which could
further restrict our business operations.  The terms of existing
or future debt instruments may restrict us from adopting some of
these alternatives.  These alternative measures may not be
successful and may not permit us or our subsidiaries to meet
scheduled debt service obligations.  If we or our subsidiaries
cannot make scheduled payments on indebtedness, we or our
subsidiaries, as applicable, will be in default under one or more
of the debt agreements and, as a result we could be forced into
bankruptcy or liquidation," the Company said in its annual report
for the year ended Dec. 31, 2013.

In May 2013, Moody's Investors Service said that Clear Channel's
upsize of the term loan D to $4 billion from $1.5 billion will not
impact the Caa1 facility rating assigned.  Clear Channel's
Corporate Family Rating is unchanged at Caa2.  The outlook remains
stable.

In May, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services also announced that its
issue-level rating on San Antonio, Texas-based Clear Channel's
senior secured term loan remains unchanged at 'CCC+' following the
company's upsize of the loan to $4 billion from $1.5 billion.  The
rating on parent company CC Media Holdings remains at 'CCC+' with
a negative outlook, which reflects the risks surrounding the long-
term viability of the company's capital structure.


COLOREP INC: Seeks to Dismiss Chapter 11 Case
---------------------------------------------
Colorep, Inc. and Transprint USA, Inc., filed a motion with the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court seeking an order to dismiss the chapter 11
case of the Debtors and requests that the Court retain limited
jurisdiction after the dismissal of these cases on the following
matters:

(a) overseeing any administrative matter that may arise in
    connection with implementing the dismissal; and

(b) entering ministerial orders as may be necessary to implement
    the dismissal.  The Debtor also requests, out of an abundance
    of caution, that the Court enter an order, pursuant to
    Bankruptcy Code section 349(b), holding that the dismissal of
    these Chapter 11 cases will not alter the enforceability of
    certain orders previously entered in these cases.

The Debtors said that the the dismissal of the Chapter 11 cases is
the most cost-effective way for them to emerge from the bankruptcy
proceedings and will not negatively impair the rights of any
creditors.  The Debtors have sold substantially all their assets
in a Court-approved sale and do not anticipate making any
distribution to creditors.

The Debtor's goal in filing Chapter 11 cases was to maximize value
to their stakeholders through the marketing and sale of
substantially all of their assets. The Sale to the Buyer closed on
October 7, 2013. , The Debtors now have no operations and no
assets to distribute.

The dismissal of this Chapter 11 case will save the Debtors the
expense of either confirming a Chapter 11 liquidating plan or
converting this case to Chapter 7, which will provide no
added value to creditors.  Further, no creditor will suffer any
"legal prejudice" from the dismissal of this Chapter 11 cases as
there are no assets to distribute and the Debtors will not be
receiving a discharge of any of their debts. Accordingly,
dismissal is in the best interests of the Debtors' estates
and creditors.

Hearing on the Motion is set May 29, 2014 at 10:00 a.m.  The
Dismissal Hearing will take place in the courtroom of the
Honorable Bankruptcy Judge Julia W. Brand in Courtroom 1375, 255
East Temple Street, Los Angeles, California 90012.

Colorep Inc., an industrial printer from Harrisonburg, Virginia,
filed for Chapter 11 protection (Bankr. C.D. Calif. Case No.
13-27689) on July 10, 2013, in Los Angeles, owing $17 million to
secured lender Meserole LLC.  The company licenses a fabric-dyeing
process known as AirDye.  Colorep's subsidiary Transprint USA Inc.
also filed in Chapter 11.  Transprint produces transfer-printing
paper.

                       About Community First

Columbia, Tenn.-based Community First, Inc., is a registered bank
holding company under the Bank Holding Company Act of 1956, as
amended, and became so upon the acquisition of all the voting
shares of Community First Bank & Trust on Aug. 30, 2002.  The Bank
conducts substantially all of its banking activities in Maury,
Williamson and Hickman Counties, in Tennessee.

                          Written Agreement

On March 14, 2013, the Bank entered into a written agreement with
the Tennessee Department of Financial Institutions, the terms of
which are substantially the same as those of the Consent Order,
including as to required minimum levels of capital the Bank must
maintain.

The Bank's Tier 1 capital to Average Assets as of December 31,
2013 was below those that the Bank agreed to achieve under the
terms of the Consent Order.  Based on December 31, 2013 levels of
average assets and risk-weighted assets, the required amount of
additional Tier 1 capital necessary for the Bank to meet the
requirements of the Consent Order was approximately $386.  As a
result of entering into the Consent Order, the Bank is subject to
additional limitations on its operations including accepting,
rolling over, or renewing brokered deposits, which could adversely
affect the Bank's liquidity and/or operating results.  By virtue
of entering into the Consent Order, the Bank is also limited from
paying deposit rates above national rate caps published weekly by
the FDIC, unless the Bank is determined to be operating in a high-
rate market area.  On December 1, 2011, the Bank received
notification from the FDIC that it is operating in a high-rate
environment, which allows the Bank to pay rates higher than the
national rate caps, but continues to limit the Bank to rates that
do not exceed the prevailing rate in the Bank's market by more
than 75 basis points.  The Bank is also limited, as a result of
its condition, in its ability to pay severance payments to its
employees and must receive the consent of the FDIC and the
Department to appoint new officers or directors.

"As of December 31, 2013, we believe that the Bank is in
compliance with all provisions of the Consent Order that were
required to be completed by December 31, 2013, with the exception
of attaining the Tier I capital to average assets ratio required
by the Consent Order.  In accordance with the terms of the Consent
Order, management has submitted a capital plan with the objective
of attaining the capital ratios required by the Consent Order.
The FDIC has accepted the capital plan.  In addition to the
capital plan, all other plans required by the Consent Order have
been prepared and submitted to the FDIC and have been accepted by
the FDIC," the Company said in the annual report for the year
ended Dec. 31, 2013.

COMSTOCK RESOURCES: Moody's Rates $100MM Sr. Unsecured Notes 'B3'
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service said that Comstock Resources, Inc.'s
(Comstock) $100 million tack-on offering of senior unsecured notes
due 2019 are rated B3. The proceeds from the new senior notes will
be used to repay borrowings under Comstock's secured revolving
credit facility. Comstock's other ratings are unchanged and the
outlook remains stable.

"The notes issue enhances liquidity to help fund the 2014 capital
spending budget, and will help to fund the continued transition to
becoming a more oil focused company," commented Arvinder Saluja,
Moody's Analyst.

Ratings Rationale

The B3 note rating for the senior notes reflects the company's
probability of default of B2-PD and a loss given default of LGD5
(75%). The size of the senior secured revolver's priority claim
relative to the senior unsecured notes results in the notes being
rated one notch beneath Comstock's B2 Corporate Family Rating
under Moody's Loss Given Default Methodology.

Comstock's B2 CFR reflects the company's high but decreasing
proportion of natural gas production, its relatively early stage
operations in the Eagle Ford play where the majority of capital
spending will be focused, and the significant amount of capital
needed to fund its transition to becoming a more oil-focused E&P
company. The weak leveraged-full cycle ratio (LFCR), which
captures the efficiency of the reinvested capital, restrains the
rating. The rating is supported by the company's increasing
liquids production and lower cost structure that should yield
better cash margins and improved leverage metrics.

The SGL-2 liquidity rating reflects good liquidity through 2014.
The credit facility will have a $683 million pro forma borrowing
base, which is subject to semi-annual redeterminations based on
the value of proved reserves. The large proportion of natural gas
in the reserve base exposes the company to the risk of negative
borrowing base redeterminations if gas prices weaken further.
Financial covenants under the credit facility include debt /
EBITDAX of less than 4x and interest coverage ratio of greater
than 2.5x. There are no debt maturities prior to 2018 when the
credit facility matures. Although the majority of Comstock's
assets are pledged as security under the credit facility, the
company has the ability to raise additional liquidity through
limited asset sales.

The stable outlook reflects Moody's expectation that Comstock will
maintain adequate liquidity as it funds the transition to becoming
a more oil focused company, and will achieve reasonable
operational success with increasing the proportion of oil
production. Moody's  could downgrade the CFR if liquidity
deteriorates, if returns do not continue to benefit from
increasing liquids production, or if Moody's  expect RCF / debt to
be maintained below 25%. Longer term, Moody's  could upgrade the
CFR if Moody's  expect the company's leveraged full cycle ratio
(LFCR) to be maintained at or above 1.7x with RCF / debt of at
least 40%.

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

COMSTOCK RESOURCES: S&P Retains 'B' CCR Following $100MM Add-On
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that its ratings on
Comstock Resources Inc., including the 'B' corporate credit rating
and 'B-' senior unsecured debt rating, are not affected by the
company's proposed $100 million add-on offering to its 7.75%
senior unsecured notes due 2019.  The notes were originally issued
in March 2011 in the aggregate principal amount of $300 million.

Comstock intends to use net proceeds from the offering to repay
outstanding borrowings under its credit facility ($360 million
outstanding as of March 31, 2014).

CRYOPORT INC: Has Private Offering of $291,808 Securities
---------------------------------------------------------
Cryoport, Inc., entered into definitive agreements for a private
placement of its securities to certain institutional and
accredited investors for aggregate gross proceeds of $291,808
(approximately $229,429 after estimated cash offering expenses)

warrants were issued as a unit consisting of (i) one share of
Class A Convertible Preferred Stock of the Company and (ii) one
warrant to purchase eight shares of Common Stock at an exercise
price of $0.50 per share, which will be immediately exercisable

Pursuant to the terms promissory notes issued by the Company
between Dec. 6, 2013, and March 13, 2014, with a total original
principal amount of $1,793,000, the issuance of the Units to
Investors at $12.00 per Unit entitled the holders of the 5 percent
Bridge Notes to convert up to the entire principal amount and
accrued interest under the 5 percent Bridge Notes into Units at a
rate of $10.80 per Unit.  Through May 8, 2014, 5 percent Bridge
Note holders of $1,274,000 in original principal sum elected to
convert their 5 percent Bridge Notes for Units and the Company is
providing notice to the remaining 5 percemt Bridge Note holders of
their right to convert, with such election being due within ten

percent Bridge Note holders that executed Subscription Agreements

amount of $220,000, are affiliates of the Registrant - Jerrell W.
Shelton, the Company's chief executive officer, and GBR
Investments, LLC, which is managed by Richard Rathmann, a Director
and Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Company.

Emergent Financial Group, Inc., served as the Company's placement
agent in this transaction and received, with respect to the gross
proceeds received from Investors who converted their 5 percent
Bridge Notes into Units, a commission of 3 percent and a non-
accountable finance fee of 1 percent of those proceeds, and with
respect to gross proceeds received from all other Investors, a
commission of 10 percent and a non-accountable finance fee of 3
percent of the aggregate gross proceeds received from such
Investors, plus reimbursement of legal expenses of up to $40,000.
Emergent Financial Group, Inc., will also be issued a warrant to
purchase three shares of Common Stock at an exercise price of
$0.50 per share for each Unit issued in this transaction.  The
Company and Emergent Financial Group, Inc., have agreed that the
offering of Units to new Investors will conclude on June 16, 2014.

KMJ Corbin & Company LLP, in Costa Mesa, California, issued a
"going concern" qualification on the consolidated financial
statements for the year ended March 31, 2013.  The independent
auditors noted that the Company has incurred recurring operating
losses and has had negative cash flows from operations since
inception.  Although the Company has cash and cash equivalents of
$563,104 at March 31, 2013, management has estimated that cash on
hand, which include proceeds from convertible bridge notes
received in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013, will only be
sufficient to allow the Company to continue its operations into
the second quarter of fiscal 2014.  These matters raise
substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a
going concern.

Cryoport incurred a net loss of $6.38 million for the year ended

CURO HEALTH: Moody's Assigns 'B3' Corporate Family Rating
---------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a B3 Corporate Family Rating
and a B3-PD Probability of Default Rating to Curo Health Services,
LLC.  Concurrently, Moody's assigned a B2 rating to the company's
proposed first lien senior secured credit facilities and a Caa2
rating to the proposed second lien senior secured term loan. The
rating outlook is stable. This is the first time that Moody's has
assigned ratings to Curo.

The first lien credit facilities will be comprised of a $35
million revolving credit facility and a $335 million term loan.
The proposed second lien term loan amount will be $115 million.
The company intends to use proceeds from the debt issuance to fund
an acquisition of SouthernCare Holdings, Inc. for approximately
$230 million, to refinance existing debt and to pay fees and
expenses.

The following ratings have been assigned subject to review of
final documentation:

Corporate Family Rating at B3

Probability of Default Rating at B3-PD

First lien senior secured credit facilities at B2 (LGD3, 35%)

Second lien senior secured term loan at Caa2 (LGD5, 87%)

Rating Rationale

The B3 CFR reflects Moody's assessment of risk arising from Curo's
singular focus on the hospice industry, its high revenue
concentration from Medicare (roughly 95% of total revenue) and the
increasing regulatory oversight of the industry. Moody's expects
that there will be continued focus on implementing measures to
contain cost and improve quality reporting/compliance that will
impact Medicare reimbursement over the next few years. The rating
also reflects the company's small size, the presence of
considerable competition in a fragmented industry and high
financial leverage following the acquisition financing. Moody's
expects debt/EBITDA to remain at or above 6.0 times over the next
12-18 months. The rating also incorporates Moody's consideration
of the integration risks from the SouthernCare acquisition, which
will nearly double the company's revenue base, as well as
uncertainty related to pending litigation and regulatory
investigations.

The rating is supported by Curo's increased scale following the
acquisition and the company's position as the third largest for-
profit hospice operator in the US. Moody's also recognizes Curo's
recent revenue growth despite the overall negative volume trend in
the industry and management's track record of integrating previous
acquisitions. In addition, Moody's anticipates that Curo's capital
expenditures will remain modest and that the company will use free
cash flow for debt reduction.

The stable rating outlook reflects Moody's expectation that Curo's
revenue and EBITDA will increase modestly over the next 12-18
months. The stable outlook also reflects Moody's expectation that
the company will delever and maintain good liquidity.

Prior to a positive rating action, Moody's would need to gain
comfort that any adverse impact from changes in Medicare
reimbursement will be manageable without materially impairing the
company's business operations or cash flow. In addition, Moody's
could consider a rating upgrade if the company reduces and
sustains debt/EBITDA around 5.5 times.

The ratings could be downgraded if there is a contraction in
operating cash flow, such that free cash flow turns negative, or
if the company's liquidity deteriorates. Ratings could also be
downgraded if litigation risks materialize, the company fails to
integrate SouthernCare successfully, or if debt/EBITDA is expected
to be sustained above 6.5 times.

Curo is a hospice provider primarily in Southeastern and
Southwestern U.S. with 104 locations across 10 states.
SouthernCare is a hospice provider operating 69 locations in 14
states with a geographic concentration in Alabama, Indiana, and
Mississippi. Combined, Curo will operate 173 locations in 19
states.


CURO HEALTH: S&P Assigns 'B' CCR; Outlook Stable
------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned a 'B' corporate credit
rating to hospice service provider Curo Health Services LLC.  The
outlook is stable.  At the same time, S&P assigned a 'B' issue-
level rating to the company's $35 million revolving credit
facility and $335 million first-lien term loan.  The recovery
rating on this debt is '3', indicating S&P's expectations of
meaningful recovery (50%-70%) of principal in the event of a
default.  S&P is also assigning a 'CCC+' issue-level rating and
'6' recovery rating to the company's $115 million second-lien term
loan, indicating expectations of negligible recovery (0%-10%) in
the event of default.  The ratings reflect S&P's view of the
company pro forma for the transaction. Curo is privately owned.

"The ratings on Curo reflect its "weak" business risk profile and
"highly leveraged" financial risk profile.  The "weak" business
risk is driven by its narrow focus in the very fragmented hospice
care industry, reimbursement risk, and modest scale (under $500
million revenues), despite the industry's favorable demographics
and the company's improving operational performance over the past
few years," said credit analyst Cheryl Richer.  "Its "highly
leveraged" financial risk anticipates debt leverage of 8x at year
end 2015, and about $108 million of Class A common stock (viewed
as debt-like preferred security) at its parent holding company."

S&P's stable outlook anticipates low-single-digit volume growth
and relatively flat reimbursement over the next few years.  S&P
believes the company will deploy free operating cash flow to small
acquisitions while it is in the process of integrating
SouthernCare.

Downside scenario

S&P do not think deteriorating operations could sufficiently
weaken financial metrics to result in a downgrade.  Rather, S&P
thinks an unexpected event, such as a large reimbursement cut,
could be a trigger.  For example, a 10% revenue decline in tandem
with a 500-basis-point gross margin reduction would reduce free
operating cash flow to negligible levels, and precipitate a
downgrade.

Upside Scenario

An upgrade is unlikely in the foreseeable future given Curo's high
debt leverage, which will be increasing as a result of pay-in-kind
accruals, absent a conversion of the Class A shares to common
stock and additional debt repayment.  For example, if revenue
growth exceeds our base case, and internally generated cash is
deployed to debt repayment S&P could raise the ratings.  S&P would
also need to believe that sponsors would permit the company to
operate with an "aggressive" financial risk profile.  For example,
if sales grew by 10% in 2015 and the company used free cash flow
to retire debt (in addition to converting the Class A shares),
debt leverage and FFO to debt would be near 5x and 12%,
respectively, and could precipitate an upgrade.

DEEPAL WANNAKUWATTE: Pleads Guilty in $150-Mil. Ponzi Scheme
------------------------------------------------------------
Hackard Law disclosed that on May 8, 2014, in US District Court,
Deepal Wannakuwatte, a well-known Sacramento businessman and
former owner of the Sacramento Capitals tennis team, pleaded
guilty in connection to masterminding a $150 million Ponzi scheme
that defrauded dozens of investors.  He admitted responsibility to
a count of wire fraud presented by FBI agents in a February
criminal complaint, making for a maximum potential sentence of 20
years in federal prison.  Mr. Wannakuwatte's sentencing hearing is
scheduled for July 24.

Mr. Wannakuwatte was the owner of International Manufacturing
Group and RelyAid, companies he represented as a successful
medical glove supply business.  Promising high returns on supposed
multimillion-dollar contracts to provide the Department of
Veterans Affairs with latex gloves, he has caused untold financial
and emotional suffering to Northern California investors who
trusted him.  Nearly twenty years ago, O.J. Simpson's defense
attorney Johnny Cochran coined the mantra, "If the gloves don't
fit, you must acquit."  In the case of Mr. Wannakuwatte and his
lies, today we know the gloves were a tale that put him in jail.

Ponzi schemers like Mr. Wannakuwatte are able to steal millions
due to their social skills, persuasive persona and seeming
success, and in such a way they endanger whole business
communities.  With the criminal matter largely resolved, it's
important to point out that Wannakuwatte-related bankruptcy
proceedings and clawback litigation, as well as recovery efforts
for victims, could soon make the headlines of tomorrow.  Hackard
Law is monitoring events in real-time.

DESIGNER DOORS: Guarantors' Transfer of Asset Violates UFTA
-----------------------------------------------------------
Annette Wilson seeks to enforce a court judgment she obtained in
an Arizona court against Kenneth and Barbara Erickson by attaching
the Ericksons' assets, including what she contends is the
Ericksons' home in Draper, Utah.  She asks the U.S. District Court
for the District of Utah, Central Division, to invalidate the
Ericksons' transfer of the home (accomplished by a quitclaim deed
through two inter vivos trusts) to their daughter, Quinette Dunn,
on the basis that the transfer violated the Utah Fraudulent
Transfer Act (UFTA).

The parties have filed cross-motions for summary judgment. In a
May 6, 2014 Order and Memorandum Decision available at
http://is.gd/Xm0R5wfrom Leagle.com, District Judge Tena Campbell
finds that the Defendants transferred the Property to Ms. Dunn, in
violation of the UFTA, to prevent Ms. Wilson from using the
Property to satisfy the monetary judgment.  Accordingly, Ms.
Wilson's motion is granted and the Defendants' motion is denied.

The dispute arose from the April 2002 sale by Ms. Wilson of her
business, Designer Doors, Inc., to a group of individuals
including Kenneth and Barbara Erickson.  The Ericksons and the
other purchasers executed two promissory notes -- one for $949,000
and one for $551,000 -- which were secured by a personal guaranty
signed by the Ericksons and the other purchasers.  The $1.5
million remainder of the $3.5 million purchase price was covered
by the Notes.  Later, the Ericksons paid $551,000 to Ms. Wilson to
satisfy one of the Notes. The $949,000 Note remained unpaid.

Designer Doors, now owned by Erickson et al., filed for Chapter 11
bankruptcy (Bankr. D. Ariz. Case No. 07-03226) on July 9, 2007.
Jeffrey A. Sandell, Esq., at Tiffany & Bosco, P.A., serves as the
Debtor's counsel.  In its petition, Designer Doors estimated
$100,000 to $1 million in assets and $1 million to $100 million in
debts.

The Guarantors negotiated with Ms. Wilson and modified the
guarantor agreement.  They agreed that the Ericksons would pay
$31,878 to Ms. Wilson and that the outstanding balance was
$473,354.71.  For two years, the Ericksons were only required to
make monthly interest payments of $3,945 to Ms. Wilson. But in
2008, the business's bankruptcy was changed to a Chapter 7
liquidation. At that point, Ms. Wilson looked to the Guarantors
for payment on the remaining Note balance. The Ericksons paid
$256,677 to Ms. Wilson, which left a balance on the Note of
$216,677.35.

Prior to the bankruptcy filing, the Ericksons in June 2007
purchased a home in Draper, Utah and immediately transferred the
Property to the Barbara H. Erickson Living Trust.  The B. Erickson
Trust, created in 1999, is a self-settled revocable inter vivos
trust. Ms. Erickson is the settlor, trustee, and beneficiary of
the trust during her lifetime.

In 2008, when the Ericksons and other Guarantors failed to pay the
outstanding balance on the Notes, Ms. Wilson filed suit in Arizona
state court against the Ericksons.


DETROIT, MI: Pensions vs. Art in Chapter 9
------------------------------------------
Stephen J. Lubben, Professor of Law, Seton Hall Law School, in an
article for The Wall Street Journal, reported that the objection
deadline has arrived for Detroit's reorganization plan.  And it
seems likely that the "art deal" will be the focus of many
objections, especially from bondholders.

According to the report, the art deal involves an $816 million
cash infusion into Detroit's pensions in exchange for transferring
title to the works in the Detroit Institute of Arts, using $370
million from a group of foundations, $350 million from the state
and the museum's own money. It's basically a sale of the art, in
exchange for money to help avoid deeper cuts to the pensions,
which are underfunded by $3.5 billion.

The sticking point is that Detroit's bondholders are a bit sore
that they won't receive the same deal, the report related.
Municipal retirees are facing cuts of 4.5 percent in their pension
checks, while retired police officers and firefighters are facing
no cuts, though their cost-of-living increases would be
diminished. But certain general bondholders face about a one-
fourth cut in the value of their bonds. Other bondholders,
including those with claims on specific income streams, are coming
out even worse.

These latter bondholders can be expected to argue that Detroit's
plan to exit bankruptcy "unfairly discriminates" against them, the
report related. Chapter 9 incorporates this concept from the
better known Chapter 11: the court cannot approve a plan against
the will of the creditors if it discriminates unfairly. Giving a
much better deal to one group over another could be an example of
that. One bond insurer insists that creditors are entitled to the
value of the art and is asking Detroit's bankruptcy judge, Steven
Rhodes, to order the city to explore alternatives to the $816
million deal.

After all, pensions and bonds are just two different kinds of
unsecured claims when viewed with a certain degree of abstraction,
the report further related.

                  About City of 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.

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.

                    About the Diocese of Helena

The Roman Catholic Bishop of Helena, Montana, a Montana Religious
Corporation Sole (a/k/a Diocese of Helena) sought protection
under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code on Jan. 31, 2014, to
resolve more than 350 sexual-abuse claims.  The Chapter 11 case
(Bankr. D. Mont. Case No. 14-60074) was filed in Butte, Montana.

Attorneys at Elsaesser Jarzabek Anderson Elliott & MacDonald,
Chtd., serve as counsel to the Debtor.  Gough, Shanahan, Johnson &
Waterman PLLP has been tapped as special counsel to provide legal
advice relating to sexual abuse claims.

Several Roman Catholic dioceses in the U.S. have filed for
bankruptcy to settle claims from current and former parishioners
who say they were sexually molested by priests.

The Roman Catholic Bishop of Helena filed its schedules of assets
and liabilities, which show assets with a value of more than
$16.037 million against debt totaling $33.6 million.  The filings
also showed that the diocese has $4.7 million in secured debt.
Creditors of the diocese assert $28.89 million in unsecured
non-priority claims.

The U.S. Trustee for Region 18 appointed seven creditors to serve
on the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors.  The Committee
has retained Pachulski Stang Ziehl & Jones LLP as counsel.

The Court installed Michael R. Hogan as the legal representative
for these sex abuse victims: (a) are under 18 years of age before
the Claims Bar Date; (b) neither discovered nor reasonably should
have discovered before the Claims Bar Date that his or her injury
was caused by an act of childhood abuse; or (c) have a claim that
was barred by the applicable statute of limitations as of the
Claims Bar Date but is no longer barred by the applicable statute
of limitations for any reason, including for example the passage
of legislation that revives such claims.


DIOCESE OF HELENA: May 14 Hearing on Ursuline Stay Motion
---------------------------------------------------------
The Bankruptcy Court will convene a hearing on May 14, 2014, at
9:00 a.m., to consider Ursuline Western Province's motion for
relief from the automatic stay in the Chapter 11 case of Roman
Catholic Bishop of Helena, Montana, a Religious Corporation Sole
(Diocese of Helena).

On May 5, Ursuline filed papers in support of its motion for
relief to pursue litigation against the Debtor, stating that the
Ursulines established good cause why they should be granted relief
from the automatic stay.  According to the Ursuline, the Debtor
has not carried its burden of proof under Section 362(g) of the
Bankruptcy Code.  Rather, the Debtor filed a pleading akin to a
motion to dismiss, demanding the Court to analyze state law to
evaluate the merits of the Ursulines' potential claim against the
Debtor.

as their investment banker.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on April 4, 2014,
PJSC will advise and assist the Debtors in developing a general
strategy for accomplishing any financing or restructuring, as well
as its form and structure.

The Debtors will compensate PJSC an advisory fee of $75,000 per

the applicable percentage below of the gross proceeds of that
financing: (i) 1.0% for senior secured debt, (ii) 3.5% for junior
secured or unsecured debt, and (iii) 5.5% for common, preferred,
or other equity.  The firm will also be paid a restructuring
transaction fee equal to $1,500,000.  In the event of any
postpetition sale, a postpetition sale fee equal to the greater of
(x) $1,500,000 in the aggregate for all postpetition sales or (y)
1.5% of aggregate consideration paid or payable in connection with
the postpetition sale, payable at the closing of the sale.

In the 90-day period prior to the Petition Date, PJSC received
from the Debtors $750,000 in restructuring transaction fees, a
$75,000 prepetition retainer, $225,000 in monthly advisory fees,
and $42695 on account of expense reimbursements.

Durc A. Savini, a managing director of Peter J. Solomon Company,

Court that his 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 Debtors and their estates.

                      About The Dolan Company

Minneapolis, Minn.-based The Dolan Company (OTC:DOLN) and its
subsidiaries provide professional services and business
information to the legal, financial and real estate sectors.

The Dolan Company and several affiliates sought Chapter 11
bankruptcy protection (Bankr. D. Del. Case Nos. 14-10614 to
14-10637) on March 23, 2014.  The Company has said it expects to
emerge from bankruptcy within two months.

Judge Brendan L. Shannon oversees the cases.  Marc Kieselstein,
P.C., Jeffrey D. Pawlitz, Esq., and Joseph M. Graham, Esq., at
Kirkland & Ellis LLP, serve as the Debtors' counsel.  Timothy P.
Cairns, Esq., Laura Davis Jones, Esq., and Michael Seidl, Esq., at
Pachulski Stang Ziehl & Jones LLP, serve as local counsel.

Kevin Nystrom serves as the Company's chief restructuring officer.
Faegre Baker Daniels LLP serves as the Debtors' special counsel;
Peter J. Solomon Company serves as financial advisors; and
Kurtzman Carson Consultants, LLC, serves s noticing and balloting
agent.  Deloitte Tax LLP serves as tax advisors.  Zolfo Cooper LLC
also serves as advisors.

Dolan listed $236.2 million in total assets and $185.9 million in
total debts at Sept. 30, 2013.  The petitions were signed by Vicki
J. Duncomb, authorized signatory.

Global investment management firm T. Rowe Price Associates, Inc.,
owns nearly 10% of the company's stock, while James Dolan owns
6.8%.

Dolan's e-discovery business, DiscoverReady LLC, did not file a
chapter 11 petition and its operations will not be affected by the
chapter 11 process.

On March 18, 2014, Dolan and its lenders and certain of its swap
counterparties executed a restructuring support agreement that
sets forth the material terms of the chapter 11 restructuring and
secures the support of the secured creditors for that process. In
accordance with the RSA, the Company commenced solicitation for
votes on the chapter 11 plan from secured creditors, the only
parties entitled to vote under the plan of reorganization.

The chapter 11 plan contemplates that the secured lenders will
become the owner of DiscoverReady and The Dolan Company upon the
completion of the restructuring process and each business will be
operated as separate and distinct entities.  Investment funds
managed by Bayside Capital, Inc. will become the majority owner of
DiscoverReady and The Dolan Company.  Bayside Capital is an
affiliate of H.I.G. Capital, a global private investment firm with
more than $15 billion of equity capital under management.

The chapter 11 plan process will allow the filing subsidiaries of
the Company to deleverage its capital structure by reducing its
projected secured debt obligations from approximately $170 million
to approximately $50 million.  The RSA also secures support from
the lenders to refinance DiscoverReady's capital structure with a
$10 million unfunded secured revolving facility.  The existing
preferred and common shares will be cancelled and will not receive
a recovery in the chapter 11 plan.  After emergence from
bankruptcy, both The Dolan Company and DiscoverReady LLC will be
privately held companies.

The lenders are to provide a $10 million DIP loan to fund the cash
needs of the Company and DiscoverReady through the reorganization
process.

Bayside Capital is represented in the case by Akin Gump Strauss
Hauer & Feld LLP's Michael S. Stamer, Esq., and Sarah Link
Schultz, Esq.

An Official Committee of Equity Security Holders is represented by

for the Debtors.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on April 4, 2014,
Zolfo Cooper's, Mr. Nystrom's and the associate directors'
compensation will consist of: (a) a monthly fee of $150,000 plus
out-of-pocket expenses; (b) a restructuring equal to $400,000 plus
an additional fee of $400,000 if the restructuring results in the
retention of or issuance of warrants for 10% or more of each class
of the existing preferred or common shares of reorganized Dolan
having an aggregate value of at least $10,000,000.  The firm, Mr.
Nystrom and the associate directors' reasonable out-of-pocket

$150,000.

Mr. Nystrom, a managing director of Zolfo Cooper, LLC, assures the

defined in Section 101(14) of the Bankruptcy Code and does not
represent any interest adverse to the Debtors and their estates.

                      About The Dolan Company

Minneapolis, Minn.-based The Dolan Company (OTC:DOLN) and its
subsidiaries provide professional services and business
information to the legal, financial and real estate sectors.

The Dolan Company and several affiliates sought Chapter 11
bankruptcy protection (Bankr. D. Del. Case Nos. 14-10614 to
14-10637) on March 23, 2014.  The Company has said it expects to
emerge from bankruptcy within two months.

Judge Brendan L. Shannon oversees the cases.  Marc Kieselstein,
P.C., Jeffrey D. Pawlitz, Esq., and Joseph M. Graham, Esq., at
Kirkland & Ellis LLP, serve as the Debtors' counsel.  Timothy P.
Cairns, Esq., Laura Davis Jones, Esq., and Michael Seidl, Esq., at
Pachulski Stang Ziehl & Jones LLP, serve as local counsel.

Kevin Nystrom serves as the Company's chief restructuring officer.
Faegre Baker Daniels LLP serves as the Debtors' special counsel;
Peter J. Solomon Company serves as financial advisors; and
Kurtzman Carson Consultants, LLC, serves s noticing and balloting
agent.  Deloitte Tax LLP serves as tax advisors.  Zolfo Cooper LLC
also serves as advisors.

Dolan listed $236.2 million in total assets and $185.9 million in
total debts at Sept. 30, 2013.  The petitions were signed by Vicki
J. Duncomb, authorized signatory.

Global investment management firm T. Rowe Price Associates, Inc.,
owns nearly 10% of the company's stock, while James Dolan owns
6.8%.

Dolan's e-discovery business, DiscoverReady LLC, did not file a
chapter 11 petition and its operations will not be affected by the
chapter 11 process.

On March 18, 2014, Dolan and its lenders and certain of its swap
counterparties executed a restructuring support agreement that
sets forth the material terms of the chapter 11 restructuring and
secures the support of the secured creditors for that process. In
accordance with the RSA, the Company commenced solicitation for
votes on the chapter 11 plan from secured creditors, the only
parties entitled to vote under the plan of reorganization.

The chapter 11 plan contemplates that the secured lenders will
become the owner of DiscoverReady and The Dolan Company upon the
completion of the restructuring process and each business will be
operated as separate and distinct entities.  Investment funds
managed by Bayside Capital, Inc. will become the majority owner of
DiscoverReady and The Dolan Company.  Bayside Capital is an
affiliate of H.I.G. Capital, a global private investment firm with
more than $15 billion of equity capital under management.

The chapter 11 plan process will allow the filing subsidiaries of
the Company to deleverage its capital structure by reducing its
projected secured debt obligations from approximately $170 million
to approximately $50 million.  The RSA also secures support from
the lenders to refinance DiscoverReady's capital structure with a
$10 million unfunded secured revolving facility.  The existing
preferred and common shares will be cancelled and will not receive
a recovery in the chapter 11 plan.  After emergence from
bankruptcy, both The Dolan Company and DiscoverReady LLC will be
privately held companies.

The lenders are to provide a $10 million DIP loan to fund the cash
needs of the Company and DiscoverReady through the reorganization
process.

Bayside Capital is represented in the case by Akin Gump Strauss
Hauer & Feld LLP's Michael S. Stamer, Esq., and Sarah Link
Schultz, Esq.

An Official Committee of Equity Security Holders is represented by
Neil B. Glassman, Esq., GianClaudio Finizio, Esq., and Justin R.
Alberto, Esq., at Bayard, P.A., in Wilmington, Delaware; Robert J.
Stark, Esq., at Brown Rudnick LLP, in New York; and Steven B.
Levine, Esq., at Brown Rudnick LLP, in Boston, Massachusetts.

The Debtors have filed a request to disband the Equity Committee,
given the "hopeless insolvency" of their estates.


DOTS LLC: May Assume and Assign Leases to Rainbow Southeast
-----------------------------------------------------------
The Bankruptcy Court has authorized Dots, LLC, et al., to assume
and assign unexpired lease of non-residential real property to
Rainbow Southeast Leasing, Inc., pursuant to a lease purchase
agreement dated as of March 7, 2014.

On April 22, the Court authorized the Debtors to assume and assign
unexpired leases of non-residential real property to Rainbow, as
buyer, set forth in the lease purchase agreement for the purchase
of related furniture and fixtures and equipment.

The order also provides that the Debtor may conduct a going out of
business sale until May 31, 2014.  The order also overruled
objections to the Debtors' request.

Southport 2013, LLC, the owner of a shopping center located on
Montauk Highwayin Shirley, New York, objected to the sale motion
stating that it has been deprived of any opportunity to examine
the use to which Rainbow intends to put the premises --
approximately 3,542 square feet of leasable floor area within the
shopping center.  The landlord is represented by:

In Cranston/BVR Associates, LLP's objection to the Debtors' motion
to assume or assign amended lease for store number 468 to Rainbow,
it stated that the amended lease cannot be assumed and assigned to
Rainbow because the Debtors cannot satisfy any of the requirements
of Section 365(b)(3) of the Bankruptcy Code.

Cranston/BVT is represented by:

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on April 9, 2014, the
Debtor requested for authorization to assume and assign to Rainbow
32 unexpired leases of non-residential real property.  The Debtors
entered into a stalking horse purchase agreement with Rainbow,
under which Rainbow committed to purchase up to 201 leases for a
purchase price of $2.1 million.  In orders dated March 31, 2014,
the Court authorized the Debtors to sell six leases to Rainbow.
In an order dated March 27, the Court authorized the Debtors to
sell 26 leases to Rainbow.

E. H. MITCHELL: UST Seeks to Convert or Dismiss Ch.11 Case
----------------------------------------------------------
Henry G. Hobbs, Jr., Acting U.S. Trustee for Region 5, filed a
motion with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court seeking conversion or,
alternatively, to dismiss the chapter 11 case of E. H. Mitchell &
Company LLC.

On October 9, 2013, the Court signed and entered a 120-day order
which required, among other things, for the Debtor to file monthly
operating reports, pay statutory quarterly fees, maintain
insurance at an amount at least equal to the replacement value of
the property of the estate, and required that a Plan of
Reorganization be filed within 120 days after the date of the
Order for Relief as provided in Sec. 1121 and Sec. 1123.

On November 4, 2013, the UST conducted an examination of the
Debtor's representatives at the Sec. 341 Meeting of Creditors. At
the conclusion of the meeting, the Debtor's counsel was instructed
to file amendments and to provide documents that had been
previously requested by the UST's office.

The UST said the Debtor has failed to comply with several
requirements, per the Court's prior order, necessary to remain in
Chapter 11, which may include, but may not be limited to, failing
to provide proof of adequate insurance coverage and failing to
timely file monthly reports to account for post-filing activities.

The grounds for cause include, but are not limited to, the
following:

   (a) The Debtor may not have appropriate insurance coverage for
       assets or the estate, and, therefore, may pose a risk to
       the estate or to the public.

   (b) The Debtor has failed to comply with the 120 day order
       issued by this Court and has failed to comply with the U.S.
       Trustee's Operating Guidelines and Reporting Requirements,
       which require, in part, that a debtor insure property of
       the estate and file monthly operating reports on or before
       the fifteenth day of each month.

   (c) The Debtor has failed to submit requested documents or
       otherwise comply with requests made by the UST.2

   (d) The Debtor failed to pay the quarterly fees owed pursuant
       to 28 U.S.C. Sec. 1930.

Accordingly, the UST asserts that the case may be converted or
dismissed under Sec. 1112(b)(4)(C) for failure to maintain
appropriate insurance; Sec. 1112(b)(4)(D) for failure to comply
with an order of the court; Sec. 1112(b)(4)(F) for failure to
timely satisfy filing and reporting requirements; and Sec.
1112(b)(4)(H) for failure to provide information requested by the
UST.

E.D. La.).  The case is assigned to Judge Jerry A. Brown.

The Debtor is represented by Robert L. Marrero, Esq., at Robert

$300,027,297 in assets and $1,281,148 in liabilities.

The petition was signed by Michael Furr, secretary/member.

ECOTALITY INC: May File Plan Next Week; Seeks More Exclusivity
--------------------------------------------------------------
Electric Transportation Engineering Corporation, dba Ecotality
North America and its debtor-affiliates, ask the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the District of Arizona to further extend their
exclusive periods to:

  a) file a Chapter 11 plan until June 29, 2014; and
  b) solicit acceptances of that plan until Aug. 28, 2014.

The Debtors' exclusive period to file a Chapter 11 plan is set to
expire May 15, 2014, and the exclusive period to solicit
acceptances of that plan is set to expire July 14, 2014, absent an
extension.

According to the Debtors, since the closing of various sales of
substantially all of their assets in mid-October, the Debtors and
their advisors have spent a substantial amount of time evaluating
different plan structures to determine the best vehicle for
maximizing creditor recoveries.  Active discussions with the
Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors and other parties in
interest led the Debtors and their professional advisors to engage
in a comprehensive analysis of the Debtors' tax attributes, which
analysis also required seeking outside tax specialists to evaluate
the feasibility of a contemplated reorganization structure.

After weighing the relative advantages and disadvantages of
developing and soliciting votes on a plan of reorganization as
compared to a plan of liquidation, the Debtors, in their
reasonable business judgment, now believe, in consultation with
the Creditors' Committee, that a plan of liquidation will best
maximize the value of the Debtors' estates for the benefit of
creditors.

The Debtors and their advisors -- with input from the Creditors'
Committee -- have made significant headway in finalizing a plan of
liquidation and corresponding disclosure statement and intend to
file the relevant documents the week of May 18, 2014, which is a
few days after the current expiration of the Debtors' exclusive
period to file a plan.  The Debtors say they are working
diligently to finalize the plan and accompanying disclosure
statement documents before that date but need additional time to
complete drafting and to obtain board approval of the proposed
plan.

In addition, the Debtors believe that a brief extension will also
allow them to craft and seek approval of procedures and materials
for the solicitation of the plan, which likely will expedite the
normal plan confirmation timeline, while simultaneously providing
ample notice to the creditors regarding their rights under the
proposed plan of liquidation.

                      About Ecotality Inc.

Headquartered in San Francisco, California, Ecotality, Inc.
(Nasdaq: ECTY) -- http://www.ecotality.com-- is a provider of
electric transportation and storage technologies.

Ecotality Inc. along with affiliates including lead debtor
Electric Transportation Engineering Corp. sought Chapter 11
protection (Bankr. D. Ariz. Lead Case No. 13-16126) on Sept. 16,
2013, with plans to sell the business at an auction.

The cases are assigned to Chief Judge Randolph J. Haines.  The
Debtors' lead counsel are Charles R. Gibbs, Esq., at Akin Gump
Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP, in Dallas, Texas; and David P. Simonds,
Esq., and Arun Kurichety, Esq., at Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld
LLP, in Los Angeles, California.  The Debtors' local counsel is
Jared G. Parker, Esq., at Parker Schwartz, PLLC, in Phoenix,
Arizona.  FTI Consulting, Inc. serves as the Debtors' crisis
manager and financial advisor.  The Debtors' claims and noticing
agent is Kurtzman Carson Consultants LLC.

Electric Transportation estimated assets of $10 million to $50
million and debt of $100 million to $500 million.  Unlike most
companies in bankruptcy, Ecotality has no secured debt.  It simply
ran out of money.  There's $5 million owing on convertible notes,
plus liability on leases.  Part of pre-bankruptcy financing took
the form of a $100 million cost-sharing grant from the U.S. Energy
Department.  In view of the San Francisco-based company's
financial problems, the government cut off the grant when $84.8
million had been drawn.

On Sept. 24, 2013, the Office of the United States Trustee for
Region 14 appointed a committee of unsecured creditors.

In October 2013, the bankruptcy judge cleared Ecotality to sell
most of the business to Car Charging Group Inc. for $3.3 million.
Two other buyers purchased other assets for $1 million in total.

                   $45,000, in resolution of the Fee Dispute.

      of NNA       other promises in the Settlement Agreement, the

                   obligations, demands, claims for relief, causes
                   of action, debts, damages, losses and
                   liabilities of every type and nature
                   whatsoever, which the Debtor releasors ever
                   had, now have or might hereafter have against
                   the Nissan Released Parties, as applicable,
                   whether known or unknown, whether fixed or
                   contingent, whether matured or un-matured,
                   whether direct, indirect or consequential,
                   and whether asserted or unasserted, arising
                   from or related to the DIP financing or the
                   fee dispute.

  iv. Release of:  In consideration of the promises in the
     the Debtors   Settlement Agreement, Nissan and all its
                   affiliates, past and present directors,

                   servants, employees, representatives,
                   guarantors, predecessors in interest,

                   of their affiliates, past and present
                   directors, officers, shareholders, members,
                   agents, servants, employees, representatives,
                   guarantors, predecessors in interest, trustees,
                   administrators, adjusters, attorneys and
                   insurers of any and all claims, liens,
                   obligations, demands, claims for relief, causes
                   of action, debts, damages, losses and
                   liabilities of every type and nature
                   whatsoever, which such Nissan releasors
                   ever had, now has or might hereafter have

                   consequential, and whether asserted or
                   unasserted, arising from or related to the DIP
                   financing or the fee dispute.

According to the Debtors, this settlement agreement is intended to
compromise and fully resolve all issues, disputes, liabilities and
claims existing between each other, arising from or related to the
DIP financing and the fee dispute.  The Debtors believe, in their

                      About Ecotality Inc.

Headquartered in San Francisco, California, Ecotality, Inc.
(Nasdaq: ECTY) -- http://www.ecotality.com-- is a provider of
electric transportation and storage technologies.

Ecotality Inc. along with affiliates including lead debtor
Electric Transportation Engineering Corp. sought Chapter 11
protection (Bankr. D. Ariz. Lead Case No. 13-16126) on Sept. 16,
2013, with plans to sell the business at an auction.

The cases are assigned to Chief Judge Randolph J. Haines.  The
Debtors' lead counsel are Charles R. Gibbs, Esq., at Akin Gump
Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP, in Dallas, Texas; and David P. Simonds,
Esq., and Arun Kurichety, Esq., at Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld
LLP, in Los Angeles, California.  The Debtors' local counsel is
Jared G. Parker, Esq., at Parker Schwartz, PLLC, in Phoenix,
Arizona.  FTI Consulting, Inc. serves as the Debtors' crisis
manager and financial advisor.  The Debtors' claims and noticing
agent is Kurtzman Carson Consultants LLC.

Electric Transportation estimated assets of $10 million to $50
million and debt of $100 million to $500 million.  Unlike most
companies in bankruptcy, Ecotality has no secured debt.  It simply
ran out of money.  There's $5 million owing on convertible notes,
plus liability on leases.  Part of pre-bankruptcy financing took
the form of a $100 million cost-sharing grant from the U.S. Energy
Department.  In view of the San Francisco-based company's
financial problems, the government cut off the grant when $84.8
million had been drawn.

On Sept. 24, 2013, the Office of the United States Trustee for
Region 14 appointed a committee of unsecured creditors.

In October 2013, the bankruptcy judge cleared Ecotality to sell
most of the business to Car Charging Group Inc. for $3.3 million.
Two other buyers purchased other assets for $1 million in total.

EDUCATION MANAGEMENT: S&P Lowers CCR to 'CCC-'; Outlook Negative
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its corporate credit
rating on Pittsburgh-based for-profit post-secondary school
operator Education Management LLC (EDMC) to 'CCC-' from 'CCC+'.
The rating outlook is negative.

At the same time, S&P lowered the issue-level rating on the
company's senior secured credit facilities to 'CCC-' from 'CCC+',
in accordance with its notching criteria for a '3' recovery
rating, reflecting S&P's expectation for meaningful (50% to 70%)
recovery for lenders in the event of default.

S&P also lowered its issue-level rating on the company's senior
unsecured notes to 'C' from 'CCC-', in conjunction with the
corporate credit rating downgrade.  The recovery rating on this
debt remains '6', signifying S&P's expectation for negligible (0%
to 10%) recovery.

The downgrade reflects the heightened risk of a covenant violation
under the company's senior secured credit facility at fiscal year
end June 30, 2014.  Although credit metrics are similar to many
'B' category rated credits, industry trends and the company's own
revenue and cash flow trajectory suggest that the capital
structure is unsustainable.  On May 1, 2014, EDMC announced that
it drew down all remaining availability ($220 million) under its
$328 million revolver and it is not likely to meet its financial
covenants at fiscal year-end.  The company has also hired a
financial advisor and is in discussions with its lenders about its
overall capital structure.  EDMC's revolver matures in June 2015,
while its $730 million senior secured term loan (tranche C-2)
matures in June 2016 and its $342 million senior secured term loan
(tranche C-3) matures in March 2018.  The company also has $203
million in senior PIK notes due July 2018, and there are cross
default provisions governing the notes.

"Our 'CCC-' rating reflects our expectation that enrollment
declines will continue over the near term, partially because of
tougher regulatory standards since 2011 that have affected
recruiting efforts.  Given the fixed costs of the business, we
expect enrollment declines will lead to weaker credit metrics and
cash flow generation, and much slower deleveraging across the
industry. Education Management, like other for-profit operators,
depends on Title IV federal student loan programs and students'
willingness to take on debt despite a slow economic recovery and
gradually declining unemployment.  We expect the company's revenue
and EBITDA trends to remain under significant pressure in fiscal-
year 2014 and potentially beyond, as changes in marketing
practices, negative publicity regarding past practices, difficulty
in students obtaining financial aid, and increased disclosure
requirements to potential students continue to be obstacles to a
recovery in enrollments.  We view Education Management's business
risk profile as "vulnerable" because of the severe pressure of
regulatory risk on its market position and business fundamentals.
We assess the company's financial risk profile as "highly
leveraged" because we expect lease-adjusted debt leverage above 5x
and minimal discretionary cash flow generation to reduce total
debt levels," S&P said.  S&P's management and governance
assessment is "fair."

EMPIRE RESORTS: Points Program to Benefit Local Businesses
----------------------------------------------------------
Empire Resorts, Inc., and its subsidiaries, intends to launch a
casino player points reward program, if granted a gaming facility
license, that can be utilized by Empire's guests at eligible local
community businesses in Sullivan County and the Catskills region
of upstate New York.  Player points will be earned by guests at
Empire's casino -- to be located at Adelaar -- the four-season,
$750 million destination resort planned for Sullivan County - and
will be able to be redeemed at the Company's player points reward
program partner businesses.

The Empire player points reward program will provide guests with
the opportunity to earn points for slot and table play, and if
permitted by the New York State Gaming Commission, guests will be
rewarded for enjoying hotel, dining, entertainment, and spa
experiences at Empire's Gaming Facility as well.  Empire intends
for the player points to be redeemable at local businesses
throughout the county and region.  If permitted, this program
would provide Empire's valued guests the opportunity to experience
the wide variety of excellent and diverse entertainment, retail
and hospitality options in Sullivan County and the Catskills,
while fostering economic growth for local businesses.

"After decades operating in the Catskills and three years planning
our Gaming Facility development in Sullivan County, our commitment
to the region is unquestionable.  This program will allow us to
connect our guests to our community in a measureable way," said
Empire's CEO Joseph D'Amato.  "Our casino and the entire Adelaar
destination resort will be part of the fabric of Sullivan County
and the region.  We are looking forward to working with many local
business, and we are pleased to have this opportunity to
externalize our future success into our community.  This program
represents the first of several significant steps we will take to
maximize our positive impact in Sullivan County and beyond."

"Empire continues to show its unwavering support for the community
of Sullivan County," said Sullivan County Chamber of Commerce
President Cathy Paty.  "This player points reward program that can
benefit our local businesses is just another example of their
level of engagement.  This program will be impactful for local
businesses, and is a great chance to showcase much of what our
County has to offer."

Empire will be conducting an information seminar in the near
future for local community businesses in Sullivan County and the
Catskills region of upstate New York to explain how the program
operates and how those businesses can become a part of the Empire
player points reward program.

Local business interested in being an Empire player points reward
program partner business should register their interest by sending
an email to communityoutreach@empireresorts.com

Adelaar has in place essentially all of its approvals and permits
to enable Empire to commence construction immediately upon the
awarding of a Gaming Facility License to Empire.  Those approvals
and permits include zoning, master development and environmental
approvals for the destination resort, as well as site plan,
infrastructure and permits to commence and complete the state-of-
the-art casino and resort core, indoor waterpark hotel, and
renovation of the 18-hole Monster golf course.

In addition, the Town of Thompson Board recently voted in favor of
supporting Monticello Raceway Management, Inc.'s application to
the New York State Facility Location Board for a Gaming Facility
License.  MRMI - which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Empire -
has signed a Labor Peace Agreement with the New York Hotel and
Motel Trades Council, and MRMI's construction manager has signed a
Project Labor Agreement with the Hudson Valley Building and
Construction Trades Council.

downgraded Endeavour International Corporation's Corporate Family
Rating to Caa3 from Caa1.  Endeavour's Caa3 CFR reflects its weak
liquidity, small production and proved reserve scale, geographic

offshore North Sea operations for a company of its size.

In the Feb. 22, 2013, edition of the TCR, Standard & Poor's
Ratings Services lowered its corporate credit rating on Houston,
Texas-based Endeavour International Corp. (Endeavour) to 'CCC+'

ENDICOTT INTERCONNECT: Has Sept. 3 Exclusive Solicitation Period

The Hon. Diane Davis of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern
District of New York extended the exclusive period of Endicott
Interconnect Technologies Inc. and its debtor-affiliates to
solicit acceptances of their amended Chapter 11 plan of
liquidation until Sept. 3, 2014.

EIT on Dec. 23, 2013, filed its Liquidation Plan and proposed
disclosure statement.  The accompanying disclosure materials had
unsecured creditors getting an estimated recovery of 1% to 2% on
about $35 million in claims.  The initial hearing to consider
approval of the Disclosure Statement was held on Feb. 27, 2014.
Since that time, the Debtors' counsel has worked with the Office
of the U.S. Trustee and the Official Committee of Unsecured
Creditors to resolve their objections to the Disclosure Statement.
In addition, the Debtors are working to resolve certain priority
and general unsecured claims that will impact the overall
distribution to creditors in the Chapter 11 cases.

The Debtors told the Court they intend to file an amended Plan
and amended Disclosure Statement, incorporating the resolved
objections and claims by April 24, and anticipate that the Court
will schedule the hearing to confirm the amended Plan during May
or June 2014.

ENERGY FUTURE: Defends Decision to File Bankruptcy in Delaware
--------------------------------------------------------------
Peg Brickley, writing for The Wall Street Journal, reported that
Energy Future Holdings Corp. says its troubles are rooted in its
balance sheet, not in its Texas business, so the Chapter 11
restructuring it launched in Delaware should stay in the small
state, familiar territory to bankers and bankruptcy professionals.

According to the Journal, the power seller responded to a call
from unhappy creditors to push the big bankruptcy proceeding out
of Delaware to a court close to Energy Future's corporate
headquarters in Dallas. Energy Future said its focus "is on
rehabilitation of the . . . balance sheet, not a liquidation where
employees would be out of a job." The big creditors, and the big
professional firms working on the bankruptcy, are far from Texas,
Energy Future's lawyers said.

The debate over whether troubled corporations should work through
their problems where local interests can keep a close eye on the
action has gone on for years, the Journal noted.  Critics say the
tendency for big corporations from all over the country to file in
New York or Delaware is a slap at regional sensibilities.

Ease of travel for New York-based firms and lenders, access to
experienced judges and Delaware's corporate-friendly legal system,
all invite Chapter 11 filings in Wilmington, the Journal said.

Energy Future's response echoes defenders who say that when a
company owes big money, catering to the convenience of the East
Coast big banks is the smart play, the Journal further noted.
Energy Future has $42 billion worth of debt it can't pay off.

Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reported that the bankruptcy of Energy Future was significant or
insignificant, depending on whether the failure of the largest
leveraged buyout is measured in dollar amount of debt.

Measured in amount of debt, Energy Future was the second-largest
default in history, with $40 billion in debt rated by Moody's
Investors Service, the Bloomberg related.  The largest was General
Motors Corp., with $50 billion in rated debt, Bloomberg said.

Judged by dollar amount, the world-wide junk-bond default rate
rose in April to 2.2 percent from 0.9 percent the month before,
Moody's said in a report on May 8, Bloomberg further related.  In
the U.S., the Energy Future bankruptcy raised the junk default
rate to 2.1 percent from 0.4 percent.

Second Lien Notes tendered based on an assumed Settlement Date of
June 11, 2014, which amounts will be decreased in each case by
$0.14 for each day after June 11, 2014 that the Settlement Date

receive on the Settlement Date an amount, paid in cash, equal to
the Total Consideration less the Early Participation Consideration
(the "Tender Consideration").

In connection with the offer, the Issuer expects to obtain new
debt financing through the issuance of approximately $1.9 billion
of 8% Convertible Second Lien Subordinated Secured DIP Financing
Notes due 2016 (the "EFIH Second Lien DIP Notes Financing").  The
Tender Consideration, the Early Participation Consideration and

necessary, with cash on hand.  The EFIH Second Lien DIP Notes
Financing will not be registered under the Securities Act of 1933
or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the
United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from
registration requirements.

The consummation of the EFIH Second Lien Settlement is subject to
several conditions, including, among others, the closing of the
EFIH Second Lien DIP Notes Financing, which is also subject to
several conditions.  The EFIH Second Lien Settlement will not be
consummated unless, among other things, the bankruptcy court
approves the EFIH Second Lien DIP Notes Financing and the EFIH
Second Lien Settlement.

A holder that participates in the EFIH Second Lien Settlement will
be required to tender all of its EFIH Second Lien Notes.  No
holder is required to participate in the EFIH Second Lien
Settlement, and any holder's participation is voluntary.  The EFIH
Second Lien Settlement is not conditioned on any minimum
participation of holders of EFIH Second Lien Notes in the offer.
Subject to applicable law, the Issuer reserves the right to
terminate, withdraw or amend the right to participate in the EFIH
Second Lien Settlement.

All EFIH Second Lien Notes that are not tendered pursuant to the
offer to participate in the EFIH Second Lien Settlement will, upon
receipt of all necessary bankruptcy court approvals and
consummation of the EFIH Second Lien DIP Notes Financing, be
repaid in full in an amount equal to all outstanding principal
plus accrued and unpaid interest up to but not including the
consummation of the EFIH Second Lien DIP Notes Financing at the
non-default rate due and owing under the EFIH Second Lien Notes
(which will not include any alleged premiums, settlements, fees or
claims relating to repayment of such claims).  Unless otherwise
ordered by the bankruptcy court, accrued and unpaid interest will
not include any additional interest payable under the registration
rights agreement entered into in connection with the issuance of
the EFIH 11.750% Second Lien Notes or interest on overdue interest
following a default in the payment of interest on an interest
payment date.  Notwithstanding the EFIH Second Lien Settlement,
EFH Corp., EFIH and EFIH Finance, among others, intend to initiate
(if necessary) litigation to obtain entry of an order from the
bankruptcy court disallowing any and all claims derived from, or
based upon, makewhole or other similar payment provisions under

                         Bankruptcy Warning

"Our senior secured credit facility contains financial covenants
requiring us to maintain specified maximum leverage and minimum
cash interest coverage ratios.  The results of our future
operations may not allow us to meet these covenants, or may
require that we take action to reduce our debt or to act in a
manner contrary to our business objectives.

"Our failure to comply with obligations under our senior secured
credit facility, including satisfaction of the financial ratios,
would result in an event of default under the facilities.  A
default, if not cured or waived, would prohibit us from obtaining
further loans under our senior secured credit facility and permit
the lenders thereunder to accelerate payment of their loans and
not renew the letters of credit which support our bonding
obligations.  If we are not current in our bonding obligations, we
may be in breach of our contracts with our customers, which
generally require bonding.  In addition, we would be unable to bid
or be awarded new contracts that required bonding.  If our debt is
accelerated, we currently would not have funds available to pay
the accelerated debt and may not have the ability to refinance the
accelerated debt on terms favorable to us or at all particularly
in light of the tightening of lending standards as a result of the
ongoing financial crisis.  If we could not repay or refinance the
accelerated debt, we would be insolvent and could seek to file for
bankruptcy protection.  Any such default, acceleration or
insolvency would likely have a material adverse effect on the
market value of our common stock," the Company said in its annual
report for the year ended Dec. 31, 2012.

                           *     *     *

In October 2013, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services affirmed its
'B' corporate credit rating on EnergySolutions and revised its
outlook to stable from positive.  "The outlook revision reflects
our view that the company is likely to maintain higher debt levels
than our previous expectation of $675 million," S&P said.


ENGLOBAL CORP: Posts $1.8 Million Net Income in First Quarter
-------------------------------------------------------------
ENGlobal Corporation filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange
Commission its quarterly report on Form 10-Q disclosing net income
and comprehensive income of $1.81 million on $26.89 million of
operating revenues for the three months ended March 29, 2014, as
compared with net income and comprehensive income of $1.93 million
on $49.76 million of operating revenues for the three months ended
March 30, 2013.

As of March 29, 2014, the Company had $47.46 million in total
assets, $23.07 million in total liabilities and $24.39 million in
total stockholders' equity.

Mark Hess, ENGlobal's chief financial officer, said: "I believe we
are beginning to see the results of the initiatives that we began
undertaking in late 2012 and early 2013.  We have pared the
company down to a smaller, more focused operation, and reduced the
risk profile of the projects we are undertaking, and are
maintaining strict control over our overhead costs.  As a result,
our margins are improving.  We have no borrowings under our
current credit facility and have maintained a healthy cash balance
during the quarter.  While there is always room for improvement, I
believe we are in a strong financial position and poised for
future growth."

"I can't be more proud of the significant progress we have made,
which is reflected in today's report," said William Coskey, P.E.,
Chairman and chief executive officer of ENGlobal.  "I would like
to thank all of our stakeholders -- our valued customers,
employees and investors -- for their continued support."

EURAMAX HOLDINGS: Incurs $19.3 Million Net Loss in First Quarter
----------------------------------------------------------------
Euramax Holdings, Inc., filed with the U.S. Securities and
Exchange Commission its quarterly report on Form 10-Q disclosing a
net loss of $19.27 million on $169.90 million of net sales for the
three months ended March 28, 2014, as compared with a net loss of
$28.11 million on $172.54 million of net sales for the three
months ended March 29, 2013.

The Company's balance sheet at March 28, 2014, showed $593.21
million in total assets, $721.29 million in total liabiities and a
$128.08 million total shareholders' deficit.

Hugh Sawyer, interim pPresident of Euramax Holdings, Inc., and a
professional in Huron Consulting Group's Business Advisory
Practice, commented, "Our operating performance for the first
quarter of 2014 reflects the unusually severe and sustained winter
weather conditions that were experienced throughout many of our
core sales territories in North America and factors associated
with a modest economic recovery in Europe.  We believe the
negative weather conditions in North America may result in a
shorter building season this year so we continue to carefully
manage our costs as we attempt to gain greater visibility into our
2014 volumes."

Mr. Sawyer stated, "Although we experienced a small decline in
consolidated net sales for the first quarter of 2014 compared to
the prior year quarter, income from operations improved $2.4
million from a loss of $7.4 million in the first quarter of 2013
to a loss of $5.0 million in the first quarter of 2014.  This
improvement is primarily the result of a reduction in other
operating charges in our European segments and other factors
including the initial impact of various initiatives underway which
we expect to reduce operating costs, improve efficiency and better
position the Company for any potential improvement in external
conditions."

Added Mr. Sawyer, "During the first quarter we also announced
strategic modifications to our management structure which we
believe will drive speed of execution, while enabling the Company
to continue to provide innovative solutions and high quality
products to its customers in the North American market."

EVERGREEN AVIATION: Trustee Seeks Nod for $4MM Asset Sale
---------------------------------------------------------
Law360 reported that the Chapter 7 trustee for Evergreen
International Aviation Inc. asked a Delaware bankruptcy judge to
sign off on the sale of the bulk of the company's assets to Jet
Midwest Group LLC for nearly $4.3 million.

According to the report, trustee Alfred T. Giuliano, who oversees
the bankruptcy estate, is seeking court approval to sell the
assets of Evergreen and a trio of its affiliates to Jet Midwest,
which will pay $4.275 million cash and assume any liabilities or
cure costs related to contracts and leases.

The deal makes sound business sense, Giuliano said, as most of
Evergreen's businesses have been shuttered and the purchase price
represents fair market value for the assets, the report related.

"As the subject debtors are no longer operating, except on a
limited basis by the trustee for the purposes of preserving
assets, the trustee believes it is in the best interest of the
subject debtors' estates and all parties in interest to sell as
many of their assets as possible for the purpose of reducing
claims and cutting off the potential accumulation of
administrative expenses that results from the estates' retention
and maintenance of the assets," the sale motion said, the report
further related.

                  About Evergreen International

Evergreen International Aviation Inc., an air cargo carrier that
halted operations in November 2013, filed a petition for
liquidation in Chapter 7 on Dec. 31, 2013 (Bankr. D. Del. Case No.
13-13363).

Three creditors owed a total of $468,000 filed an involuntary
bankruptcy petition in Brooklyn, New York on Dec. 18, 2013 (Bankr.
E.D.N.Y. Case No. 13-47494).  By filing a voluntary petition,
Evergreen indicated a preference for being liquidated in Delaware
rather than in Brooklyn.

The petition in Delaware listed assets worth less than $100
million and debt exceeding $100 million.


EXIDE TECH: Amends Employment of Newmark Midwest
------------------------------------------------
Exide Technologies asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District
of Delaware to approve a supplement to the employment of Newmark
Midwest Region LLC dba Newmark Grubb Knight Frank as its real
estate consultant nunc pro tunc to April 23, 2014.

The Court on Nov. 13, 2013, approved its request to employ the
firm as real estate consultant.

The Debtor now tells the Court that the firm will provide the
additional services, at its sole and exclusive direction, which
include appraisal services for some or all of the Debtor's owned
properties, as determined necessary in connection with the
Debtor's valuation analysis for a plan or any potential
divestitures.  The Debtor assures the Court that the additional
services will not duplicate the services that other professionals
will be providing to the Debtor in the Chapter 11 Case.

In consideration of the additional services, subject to Court
approval, the Debtor has agreed to pay Newmark Grubb these fixed
fees for each appraisal:

  -- $4,500 per industrial property or industrial site;
  -- $3,500 per improved residential property;
  -- $1,200 per leased residential property; and
  -- $900 per residential subdivision lot.

A hearing is set for May 14, at 10:00 a.m., to consider the
Debtor's request.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Nov, 1, 2013,
the firm was expected to provide these services:

   (a) negotiate agreements with landlords for extensions to the
       time frame for Debtor to assume or reject leases;

   (b) negotiate with landlords, individual or multi-site, and
       their agents with respect to lease modifications and
       present proposed transactions for the Debtor's approval;

   (c) assist the Debtor in implementing and negotiating lease
       restructures;

   (d) provide general lease restructuring advice, including
       forming broker opinions of value, writing recommendation
       reports and landlord letters;

   (e) assist in communication and negotiation with the Debtor's
       constituents, including creditors, employees, vendors,
       shareholders, and interested parties in connection with the
       Chapter 11 Case relative to the Debtor's leases;

   (f) negotiate with and soliciting offers from prospective
       relocation alternatives;

   (g) negotiate sales of certain owned properties; and

   (h) any other service set forth in the Engagement Letter.

Steven Monroe, executive managing director and co-chair of the
corporate lease restructuring group of Newmark Grubb, 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 Debtors and their estates.

FANNIE MAE: Posts $5.3 Billion Net Income in First Quarter
----------------------------------------------------------
Federal National Mortgage Association filed with the U.S.
Securities and Exchange Commission its quarterly report on Form
10-Q disclosing net income attributable to Fannie Mae of $5.32
billion on $29.17 billion of total interest income for the three
months ended March 31, 2014, as compared with net income
attributable to Fannie Mae of $58.68 billion on $30.18 billion of
total interest income for the same period in 2013.

Fannie Mae reported the company's ninth consecutive quarterly
profit for the first quarter of 2014.  Key financial drivers
included stable revenues attributable to guaranty fees and
declining revenues attributable to the Company's retained mortgage
portfolio.  Net revenues included $4.1 billion in revenue from
settlement agreements in the first quarter of 2014 relating to
private-label mortgage-related securities sold to Fannie Mae.  In
addition, the company benefited from $1.0 billion in credit-
related income, offset by fair value losses of $1.2 billion as a
result of a decrease in longer-term interest rates during the
first quarter of 2014.

As of March 31, 2014, the Company had $3.22 trillion in total
assets, $3.21 trillion in total liabilities and $8.09 billion in
total equity.

                          Conservatorship

Fannie Mae has operated under the conservatorship of the Federal
Housing Finance Agency ("FHFA") since Sept. 6, 2008.  Fannie Mae
has not received funds from Treasury since the first quarter of
2012.  The funding the company has received under its senior
preferred stock purchase agreement with Treasury has provided the
company with the capital and liquidity needed to fulfill its
mission of providing liquidity and support to the nation's housing
finance markets and to avoid a trigger of mandatory receivership
under the Federal Housing Finance Regulatory Reform Act of 2008.
For periods through March 31, 2014, Fannie Mae has requested
cumulative draws totaling $116.1 billion and paid $121.1 billion
in dividends to Treasury.  Under the senior preferred stock
purchase agreement, the payment of dividends cannot be used to
offset prior draws.  As a result, Treasury maintains a liquidation
preference of $117.1 billion on the Company's senior preferred
stock.

FIRSTENERGY TRANSMISSION: S&P Rates $1BB Revolver Unsec. Debt BB+
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its 'BBB-' issuer
credit rating to FirstEnergy Transmission LLC (FET).  At the same
time, S&P assigned a 'BB+' rating to FET's $1 billion unsecured
revolving credit facility.  The rating outlook is stable.

S&P's 'BBB-' issuer credit rating (ICR) on FET reflects parent
FirstEnergy Corp.'s group credit profile (GCP).

"The stable outlook incorporates our expectation that parent
FirstEnergy's competitive businesses will account for about 30% of
the total company and that the consolidated financial measures are
maintained at the lower end of the range for the significant
financial risk profile category," said Standard & Poor's credit
analyst Gabe Grosberg.  "Risks to our forecast include a weaker-
than-expected economy and sustained weak electricity market
prices," said Mr. Grosberg.

S&P could lower the ratings if FirstEnergy's consolidated
financial measures consistently weaken to the "aggressive"
financial risk profile category so that FFO to debt is
consistently lower than 13% and debt to EBITDA is consistently
higher than 4.5x.  This would most likely occur if the retail
market price for electricity decreased to about $52 per megawatt
hour (MWh).

S&P could consider raising its credit rating if FirstEnergy's
consolidated FFO to debt consistently strengthens to the middle of
the range for the "significant" financial risk profile category.
This would most probably occur if GDP grew by more than 4.5% and
market electricity prices consistently rose to higher than $64 per
MWh.

S&P rates FET's $1 billion unsecured revolving credit facility
'BB+' or one notch lower than the ICR because of structural
priority obligations exceeding 20% of assets.  FET's subsidiaries,
American Transmission Systems Inc. and Trans-Allegheny Interstate
Line Co., are also borrowers of the $1 billion revolving credit
facility, on a several (and not joint) basis.

FREE LANCE-STAR: Can Access DSP's Cash Collateral Until August 1
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Free Lance-Star Publishing Co. of Fredericksburg and its
debtor-affiliates obtained a third interim order from the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, which
grants them access to cash collateral of their senior secured
lender, DSP Acquisition LLC, until Aug. 1, 2014, pursuant to the
budget.

A final hearing on the use of cash collateral is set for May 22,
2014, at 11:00 a.m.  Objections, if any, are due May 15, 2014.

The Debtors said they require cash on hand and cash flow from
their operations to fund their working capital needs and therefore
there is a risk that going concern value of their businesses will
decline if they cannot access cash on hand and cash flow from
their operations.

The Debtors told the Court that they are indebted and liable to
the holder of the prepetition debt in the approximate aggregate
amount of $37.89 million.  The Debtors said DSP maintains that it
is a holder of the prepetition debt.  DSP, the successor-in-
interest to Branch Banking & Trust Company, asserted a first-in-
priority properly perfected lien over substantially all of the
Debtors' assets including cash collateral.

In a separate filing, DSP said it would be appropriate to extend
their authority to use cash collateral on the same terms and
conditions as the current orders.

DSP noted it reserves all rights pending the review of any such
proposed order or stipulation.

The Debtors has approval to grant DSP adequate protection of its
interest, if any, in the cash collateral, in an amount equal to
the aggregate diminution in the value of DSP's cash collateral.
DSP will receive payment on the first day of each month in the
amount of $70,000 as adequate protection.

                About The Free Lance-Star Publishing

The Free Lance-Star Publishing Co. of Fredericksburg, Va., is a
publishing, newspaper, radio and communications company based in
Fredericksburg, Virginia and owned by the family of Josiah P. Rowe
III.  FLS's single, seven-day a week newspaper, The Free Lance-
Star was first published in 1885 when a group of local
Fredericksburg merchants and businessmen created the paper to
serve the news and advertising needs of the community.  FLS also
owns radio stations WFLS-AM, FLS-FM, and WVBX.  FLS owns the
community and news portal http://www.fredericksburg.com/

FLS filed a Chapter 11 bankruptcy petition (Bankr. E.D. Va. Case
No. 14-30315) in Richmond, Virginia, on Jan. 23, 2014.  William
Douglas Properties, L.L.C., a related entity that owns a portion
of the land pursuant to which FLS operates certain aspects of its
business, also sought bankruptcy protection.

Judge Keith L. Phillips was initially assigned to the cases, but
the cases were reassigned to Judge Kevin R. Huennekens on the
Petition Date.

The Debtors have tapped Tavenner & Beran, PLC, as counsel; and
Protiviti, Inc., as financial advisor.

Judge A. Robbins, U.S. Trustee for Region 4, appointed three
members to the official committee of unsecured creditors.


FREEDOM INDUSTRIES: Court Vacates May 27 Claims Bar Date
--------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court approved a joint motion by Freedom
Industries Inc. and the the Official Committee of Unsecured
Creditors for entry of an order vacating the current May 27, 2014
deadline to file proofs of claim.

The Debtor and the Committee said it is likely that there will be
a multitude of claims filed against the Debtor.  The Debtor, in
consultation with the Committee, counsel for various of the
plaintiffs in pending civil actions, the Office of the United
States Trustee and the Clerk of this Court, is in the process of
selecting a claims agent to facilitate the efficient and orderly
filing of claims in this chapter 11 case.  In the very near
future, the Debtor intends to file an application to retain a
claims agent and also seek entry of an order establishing a claims
process and setting a new claims bar date in this chapter 11 case.

The Debtor and the Committee believe that entry of an order
vacating the May Claims Bar Date, and subsequently scheduling a
new claims bar date in conjunction with the Debtor's future
request for a claims filing process, is appropriate under the
circumstances of this chapter 11 case.  The Debtor and the
Committee submit that such a process will reduce the possibility
of confusion to creditors and minimize the administrative burden
on this Court and the Clerk of this Court.

                      About Freedom Industries

Freedom Industries Inc., is engaged principally in the business of
producing specialty chemicals for the mining, steel and cement
industries.  The Debtor operates two production facilities located
in (a) Nitro, West Virginia; and (b) Charleston, West Virginia.

The company, connected to a chemical spill that tainted the water
supply in West Virginia, sought protection under Chapter 11 of the
Bankruptcy Code (Bankr. S.D. W.Va. Case No. 14-bk-20017) on Jan.
17, 2014.  The case is assigned to Judge Ronald G. Pearson.  The
petition was signed by Gary Southern, president.

The Debtor is represented by Mark E Freedlander, Esq., at McGuire
Woods LLP, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; and Stephen L. Thompson,
Esq., at Barth & Thompson, in Charleston, West Virginia.

On Dec. 31, 2013, four companies merged under the umbrella of
Freedom Industries: Freedom Industries Inc., Etowah River Terminal
LLC, Poca Blending LLC and Crete Technologies LLC.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Feb. 20, 2014,
Kate White, writing for The Charleston Gazette, reported that the
Debtor disclosed $16 million in assets and $6 million in
liabilities when it filed for bankruptcy.

On Feb. 5, 2014, the U.S. Trustee appointed an official committee
of unsecured creditors.  The Committee retained Frost Brown Todd
LLC as counsel.

On March 18, the Bankruptcy Court approved the hiring of Mark
Welch at MorrisAnderson in Chicago as Freedom's chief
restructuring officer.


GANNETT CO: S&P Affirms 'BB' CCR & Rates $1.3BB Facility 'BB'
-------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services affirmed its 'BB' corporate
credit rating on McLean, Va.-based TV broadcaster and newspaper
publisher Gannett Co. Inc.  The outlook is positive.

At the same time, S&P assigned Gannett's $1.3 billion unsecured
revolving credit facility due 2018 and $154.8 million unsecured
term loan due 2018 a 'BB' issue-level rating (at the same level as
the 'BB' corporate credit rating on the company), with a recovery
rating of '3', indicating S&P's expectation for meaningful (50% to
70%) recovery for lenders in the event of a payment default.  The
term loan and revolving credit facility were established in the
third quarter of 2013, and the size of revolving credit facility
was recently increased to $1.3 billion from $1.2 billion.

In addition, S&P affirmed the 'BB' issue-level rating on the
senior unsecured debt issued by the recently acquired Belo Corp.,
and revised the recovery rating to '3' (50% to 70% recovery
expectation) from '4' (30% to 50% recovery expectation).  The
recovery rating revision reflects S&P's expectation for slightly
better recovery prospects for these issues, which are now
obligations of Gannett.

The 'BB' corporate credit rating on Gannett Co. Inc. reflects
S&P's assessment of the business risk profile as "fair" and the
financial risk profile as "significant."  S&P views Gannett's
business risk profile as "fair," according to its criteria,
largely because of its exposure to unfavorable secular trends
affecting newspaper advertising and circulation, and the more
stable trends of TV broadcasting, notwithstanding the shift of
viewers to alternative media for news and entertainment.

The Belo purchase provides a good strategic fit by improving
network and geographic diversity and providing revenue and cost
synergies.  Gannett has combined its portfolio of 23 higher-margin
television stations located in 19 midsize markets with Belo's 20
TV stations in 15 large and midsize markets.  Gannett is the
second largest non-network-owned TV broadcaster in the U.S.,
reaching about 30% of the country's households.  With the
acquisition, the company became the largest CBS affiliate station
owner and the fourth largest owner of station affiliates of the
ABC network, after already being the largest NBC affiliate owner.
Most of the TV stations rank first or second in their local news
broadcasts.  S&P believes the company's size among U.S. TV
broadcasters adds efficiencies including programming, overhead,
and capital expenditures.  In addition, S&P believes the company
will have a stronger position in negotiating retransmission
compensation agreements with cable TV and satellite companies, and
affiliation agreements with the TV networks.


GENCO SHIPPING: Hedge Funds Buy Company's Stock
-----------------------------------------------
Stephanie Gleason, writing for The Wall Street Journal, reported
that in the days following Genco Shipping & Trading Ltd.'s
billion-dollar Chapter 11 filing, investment funds Aurelius
Capital Partners and Och-Ziff Capital Management Group bought up
stock in the dry bulk shipper, even though the stock is slated to
be canceled in the restructuring and repaid very little.

Aurelius, a sharp-elbowed distressed debt fund known for its legal
sparring with buyout shops and the government of Argentina,
purchased more than 4.4 million shares, or 9.9% of the shares
outstanding, in the days following Genco's Chapter 11 filing,
spending more than $8.2 million, the Journal cited recently filed
financial disclosures. Separately, investment firm Och-Ziff, which
owned Genco stock before the filing, raised its own equity stake
by 800,000 shares, to 9.1%.

The moves could signal a coming fight over the value of Genco,
which filed for bankruptcy last month, an effort that would be
buoyed Friday by the formation of an official committee to
represent equity holders' interests, the Journal said.  These
committees can be a powerful tool in bankruptcy cases and are
funded by the estate of the bankrupt company.

The Office of the U.S. Trustee confirmed that it will host an
equity committee formation meeting, which will allow interested
shareholders to organize and hire lawyers, the Journal further
related.

Typically in Chapter 11 cases, equity holders receive nothing and
have their stakes in the bankrupt company wiped out, the Journal
noted.  In this case, Genco is offering shareholders seven-year
warrants at a strike price of $1.295 billion, which Genco said are
worth $32.9 million.

                   About Genco Shipping & Trading

New York-based Genco Shipping & Trading Limited (NYSE: GNK)
transports iron ore, coal, grain, steel products and other drybulk
cargoes along worldwide shipping routes.  Excluding Baltic Trading
Limited's fleet, Genco Shipping owns a fleet of 53 drybulk
vessels, consisting of nine Capesize, eight Panamax, 17 Supramax,
six Handymax and 13 Handysize vessels, with an aggregate carrying

Shipping's subsidiary Baltic Trading Limited currently owns a
fleet of 13 drybulk vessels, consisting of four Capesize, four
Supramax, and five Handysize vessels.

Genco Shipping & Trading sought bankruptcy protection (Bankr.
S.D.N.Y. Lead Case No. 14-11108) on April 21, 2014, to implement a
prepackaged financial restructuring that is expected to reduce the
Company's total debt by $1.2 billion and enhance its financial
flexibility.  The company's subsidiaries other than Baltic Trading
Limited (and related entities) also sought bankruptcy protection.

Genco, owned and controlled by Peter Georgiopoulos, disclosed
assets of $2.448 billion and debt of $1.475 billion as of Feb. 28,
2014.

GENERAL MOTORS: Offers Dealers $5,000 to Promote Test Drives
------------------------------------------------------------
Jeff Bennett and Christina Rogers, writing for The Wall Street
Journal, reported that General Motors Co. is offering Cadillac
dealers $5,000 to push test drives of its ELR plug-in hybrid and
arming them with customer discount certificates that can knock
$3,000 off the lease or purchase price.

The offer -- dubbed the Demonstrator Allowance Program -- comes as
ELR inventories continue to grow. GM had 1,688 of the models in
stock at the end of April or a 719-day supply, the Journal said,
citing Autodata Corp. That means if the auto maker stopped
producing the ELR now, it would take almost two years to sell the
current models.

The ELR sports coupe went on sale in late December with a starting
price of $75,000, the report related.  The car was aimed at giving
customers a luxury option. It also travels about 40 miles on
electricity before switching to gasoline -- the same as the
Chevrolet Volt.

Industry analysts quickly criticized the pricing since customers
interested in an electric vehicle could either purchase the
cheaper Volt, which starts at $35,000, or opt to spend a little
more for the Tesla Model S from Tesla Motors Inc., the report
further related.  GM cut the price of the Volt last year to make
it more competitive.

GM had an 88-day supply of the Volt at the end of last month, the
report added. The company sold 5,154 Volts from January through
April, down 7% from the prior-year period. The company had sold at
total of 241 Cadillac ELRs through the end of April.

Globalstar, Inc., filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange
Commission its quarterly report on Form 10-Q disclosing a net loss
of $250.54 million on $20.53 million of total revenue for the
three months ended March 31, 2014, as compared with a net loss of
$25.07 million on $19.33 million of total revenue for the same
period in 2013.

As of March 31, 2014, the Company had $1.34 billion in total
assets, $1.42 billion in total liabilities and a $74.27 million
total stockholders' deficit.

in 2011.

Crowe Horwath LLP, in Oak Brook, Illinois, did not issue a "going
concern" qualification on the consolidated financial statements
for the year ended Dec. 31, 2013.  The independent auditors
previously expressed substantial doubt about the Company's ability
to continue as a going concern in their report on the consolidated
financial statements for the year ended Dec. 31, 2012.  The
independent auditors noted that Globalstar had suffered recurring
losses from operations and was not in compliance with certain
financial and nonfinancial covenants under certain long-term debt
agreements.


GLOBALSTAR INC: Widens Net Loss to $250.5-Mil. in First Quarter
---------------------------------------------------------------
Globalstar, Inc., reported a net loss of $250.54 million on $20.53
million of total revenue for the three months ended March 31,
2014, as compared with a net loss of $25.07 million on $19.33
million of total revenue for the same period in 2013.  Net loss
increased during the first quarter of 2014 reflecting the impact
of substantial non-cash charges resulting from an increase in the
value of the Company's derivative instruments, which was driven
primarily by a 50 percent increase in the Company's stock price
during the first quarter of 2014.

Jay Monroe, Chairman and CEO of Globalstar, commented, "Globalstar
continues to make progress on its operational and regulatory
fronts.  Duplex performance continues its resurgence as we start
the first full year of quality two-way coverage after a
construction and launch period of many years.  We expect to
accelerate this momentum as we enter the traditional higher
selling season in the second and third quarters.  Post quarter,
listing the Company's stock on the NYSE MKT was an important
milestone as we enter the next stages of the Company's turnaround.
With regard to the regulatory proceeding before the FCC, we are
now in the middle of the comment period with initial comments
submitted earlier this week and reply comments due in less than
one month.  We appreciate the support of the many parties that
filed comments in favor of the FCC's proposed rules, and we look
forward to working with the Commission to ensure that its proposed
rules are adopted this year."

GREEN EARTH: Appoints Mr. Walter Raquet to Interim CEO Position
---------------------------------------------------------------
Walter Raquet was appointed as interim chief executive officer by
Green Earth Technologies, Inc.'s  Board of Directors.  Mr. Raquet
will continue to be a member of the GETG Board of Directors.

"We are very pleased that Walter is making himself available and
willing to donate his time and expertise to ensure our company's
success as we grow, expanding our green technologies into new
channels of distribution", said David Buicko , Chairman of Green
Earth Technologies.  "He is a proven leader possessing significant
financial, operations and organization skills that will complement
our current management team nicely."

Mr. Raquet co-founded Knight Securities in 1995.  At Knight he
held positions of director, executive vice president and chief
operating officer.  The company achieved spectacular growth from a
$17 million capitalization and 70 employees in 1995 to a peak
market valuation of $8 billion, 1400 employees and $322 million in
EBITDA in 1999.

"We are sitting on a unique opportunity; our highly talented board
of directors provides us access to a large number of potential
customers," said Walter Raquet.  "I have the pleasure of working
with Jeff Loch, the creative genius behind Green Earth
Technologies and the excellent environmentally friendly products
that they deliver to the marketplace. GETG represents the second
of two great opportunities that I have had in business in my
lifetime; the first being Knight Trading.  With the insight gained
in that experience, I will focus on an execution strategy that
delivers strong profitable growth through superior products and
service.  I am looking forward to achieving that goal through hard
work," added Mr. Raquet.

Before his appointment by GETG to interim CEO, he served as
Chairman of Bolton LLC an investment management company and was
chairman of WR Platform Advisors, a service provider for hedge
funds.  Prior to those positions, Mr. Raquet was a partner at
Herzog Heine & Geduld, Inc.; a senior vice president at Spear,
Leeds & Kellogg/Troster Singer, and corporate controller at Paine
Webber Incorporated.  He is a CPA and practiced at the accounting
firm of Price Waterhouse.  Mr. Raquet received a B.S. degree in
Accounting from New York University in 1966.

"I'm eager to receive Walter's help and having a teammate that
possesses the credentials such as his on a full time basis will be
a tremendous asset to both GETG and our shareholders," said
Jeffrey Loch, president & founder.  "Together, we will pursue the
many opportunities with our proven 'green solutions' now made
available by environmental concerns stemming from the Oil & Gas
Industry, most recently, hydraulic fracturing and well
stimulation."

The Fracturing and Well Stimulation Opportunities:

Significant opportunities exist in the well stimulation and
fracking fluids segments of the oil and gas industry. According to
the Freedonia Group, a leading international business research
company that publishes more than 100 industry research studies
annually, the world demand for oilfield chemicals is expected to
grow 8.9% per annum to $27.9 billion in 2016.  In an era of
increasing concern for the environment, both traditional and more
environmentally friendly chemicals will see brisk demand for years
to come.  The US Department of the Interior has issued new
environmental and safety rules and regulations for companies
engaging in hydraulic fracturing for natural gas and oil on
Federal and Native American lands.  These rules may likely pave
the way for all fracturing on private lands as well.  The
proposals would require that all of the chemicals used in the
fracturing fluids be disclosed, tighter standards for well-bore
integrity to verify that fluids are not contaminating groundwater
and plans be developed for handling fluids that flow back to the
surface.

"Green Earth Technologies can provide high performance
environmentally safer 'green solutions' that address these
environmental concerns while satisfying the new rules and
regulations," concluded Loch.

Since the beginning of June 30, 2012, fiscal year, the Company
sold 6.0 percent Secured Convertible Debentures in the aggregate
principal of $2,725,000 to Mr. Raquet and an affiliate of Mr.
Raquet.  The Debentures are due and payable on Dec. 31, 2014, and
March 31, 2016, in the amount of $1,250,000 and $1,475,000,
respectively, and accrue interest at a rate of 6.0 percent per
annum which is paid in cash or shares of common stock, at the
Company's sole discretion.  As of May 7, 2014, an aggregate of
$454,000 in interest was paid on the Debentures.

HERON LAKE: Published Newsletter to Unitholders
-----------------------------------------------
Heron Lake BioEnergy, LLC, published and sent a newsletter to its
unit holders on or about May 8, 2014, a copy of which is available
for free at http://is.gd/IHQSLB

                          About Heron Lake

Heron Lake BioEnergy, LLC, operated a dry mill, coal fired ethanol
plant in Heron Lake, Minnesota.  After completing a conversion in
November 2011, the Company is now a natural gas fired ethanol
plant.  Its subsidiary, HLBE Pipeline Company, LLC, owns 73
percent of Agrinatural Gas, LLC, the pipeline company formed to
construct, own, and operate a natural gas pipeline that provides
natural gas to the Company's ethanol production facility through a
connection with the natural gas pipeline facilities of Northern
Border Pipeline Company in Cottonwood County, Minnesota.  Its
subsidiary, Lakefield Farmers Elevator, LLC, has grain facilities
at Lakefield and Wilder, Minnesota.  At nameplate, the Company's
ethanol plant has the capacity to process approximately 18.0
million bushels of corn each year, producing approximately 50
million gallons per year of fuel-grade ethanol and approximately
160,000 tons of distillers' grains with soluble.

Heron Lake BioEnergy, LLC, filed with the U.S. Securities and
Exchange Commission its annual report on Form 10-K disclosing
net income of $2.26 million on $163.76 million of revenues for the
year ended Oct. 31, 2013, as compared with a net loss of $32.35
million on $168.65 million of revenues for the same period a year
ago.

The Company's balance sheet at Oct. 31, 2013, showed $60.79
million in total assets, $33.24 million in total liabilities and
$27.55 million in total members' equity.

Boulay PLLP, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, issued a "going concern"
qualification on the consolidated financial statements for the
year ended Oct. 31, 2013.  The independent auditors noted that
the Company has incurred losses due to difficult market conditions
and had lower levels of working capital than was desired.  These
conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to
continue as a going concern.

                        Bankruptcy Warning

"Our loan agreements with AgStar are secured by substantially all
business assets and are subject to various financial and non-
financial covenants that limit distributions and debt and require
minimum debt service coverage, net worth, and working capital
requirements.  The Company was in compliance with the covenants of
its loan agreements with AgStar as of October 31, 2013.  In the
past, the Company's failure to comply with the covenants of the
master loan agreement and failure to timely pay required
installments of principal has resulted in events of default under
the master loan agreement, entitling AgStar to accelerate and
declare due all amounts outstanding under the master loan
agreement.  If AgStar accelerated and declared due all amounts
outstanding under the master loan agreement, the Company would not
have adequate cash to repay the amounts due, resulting in a loss
of control of our business or bankruptcy," the Company said in its
annual report for the year ended Oct. 31, 2013.


HILAND PARTNERS: Moody's Hikes Sr. Notes Rating to 'B2'
-------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service upgraded to B2 the senior notes of
Hiland Partners, LP (Hiland) in conjunction with the partnership's
offering of an additional $225 million of senior unsecured notes.
Hiland Partners Finance Corp., a wholly-owned subsidiary of
Hiland, is a co-issuer of the notes and shares in the guarantees
from all of Hiland's material subsidiaries. Moody's also affirmed
Hiland's B1 Corporate Family Rating (CFR), and the outlook remains
stable. Proceeds from the new notes will be used to repay
borrowings under the partnership's senior secured revolving credit
facility and for general corporate purposes.

"The new notes provide Hiland with the necessary funding to
complete its $500 million capital expenditure program for 2014
while maintaining a large liquidity cushion," said Stuart Miller,
Moody's Vice President and Senior Credit Officer. "With a greater
proportion of unsecured debt in its capital structure, it is more
appropriate to have one notch of difference between the B1
Corporate Family Rating and the unsecured senior note rating."

Ratings Rationale

The B2 rating on the senior unsecured notes reflects the company's
probability of default of B1-PD and a loss given default of LGD4
(65%). The size of the revolver's potential priority claim to the
assets results in the senior debt being rated one notch beneath
the B1 Corporate Family Rating CFR under Moody's Loss Given
Default Methodology.

The B1 CFR reflects the partnership's first-mover position in the
prolific Bakken Shale where production continues to grow rapidly.
Hiland enjoys a premier position in the Bakken Shale with a
significant acreage dedication from Continental Resources
(Continental, Baa3 stable), the largest acreage holder in the
Bakken Shale region. The acreage dedication provides a visible
path to Hiland's future growth. The CFR also incorporates Moody's
expectation that the HH Pipeline will be completed on time and on
budget by the end of 2014. With the majority of its equity held by
Harold Hamm, the Chairman and controlling equity holder of
Continental, Hiland has benefited in the past from strong support
by Mr. Hamm including equity infusions from time to time. The
partnership's practice of retaining and reinvesting its cashflow
from operations without distributions to its owner is seen as a
positive differentiating factor from other similarly-sized
midstream companies.

Much of Hiland's investment budget has been directed to oil and
natural gas gathering systems in North Dakota, as well as the
construction of the HH Pipeline. This 12-inch, 450-mile pipeline
is expected to cost approximately $330 million and will connect
crude oil production from the Bakken Shale play to Guernsey,
Wyoming where it will interconnect with the Pony Express Pipeline
for transportation to Cushing and the Gulf Coast. When completed,
the HH Pipeline will have the capacity to move up to 100,000
barrels per day. Its completion on time and on budget could
provide the impetus for a positive rating action.

The company should have adequate liquidity to cover its cash needs
through 2014 -- Moody's affirmed the Speculative Grade Liquidity
rating of SGL3. Moody's expects the company to use cash from
operations and available liquidity (including revolver borrowings)
to fund its capital spending program. Pro forma for the note
offering, the partnership will have nearly full availability under
its $400 million senior secured revolving credit facility. The
credit facility matures in 2018 and incorporates a package of
covenants that are unlikely to be breached over the next 18
months. Alternative liquidity is limited as most partnership
assets are pledged as collateral for the senior secured revolving
credit.

In order for a positive rating action to be considered, the
partnership would need to significantly grow its asset base and
manage the ratio of debt to EBITDA below 4.0x. Leverage at the end
of 2014 is projected to exceed 5.0x. As the completion of the Pony
Express Pipeline approaches, a positive outlook will be considered
assuming the percentage of fee based business continues to
improve. Should our expectations change so that Moody's  believe
Hiland's leverage will remain above 6.0x indefinitely, the ratings
could be downgraded.

HILAND PARTNERS: S&P Assigns 'B' Rating to $225MM Sr. Unsec. Notes
------------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its 'B' issue-level
rating and '4' recovery rating to Hiland Partners L.P.'s and
Hiland Partners Finance Corp.'s proposed $225 million senior
unsecured notes due 2022.  At the same time, S&P raised the issue-
level rating on Hiland Partner's $750 million, 7.25% notes due
2020 to 'B' from 'B-', and revised the recovery rating to '4' from
'5'.

The '4' recovery rating indicates S&P's expectation of average 30%
to 50%) recovery if a payment default occurs.  The partnership
intends to use net proceeds from the notes to repay outstanding
borrowings under its revolving credit facility and for general
partnership purposes.  As of March 31, 2014, the partnership had
about $910 million in debt outstanding.  S&P expects the
partnership will have an adjusted debt to EBITDA ratio in the low
5x range for 2014, improving to about 4x in 2015.

Enid, Okla.-based Hiland Partners is a privately owned midstream
energy partnership that specializes in natural gas gathering and
processing and crude oil logistics in the Bakken Shale and Mid-
Continent regions of the U.S.  S&P's corporate credit rating on
Hiland is 'B' and the outlook is stable.

HORIZON LINES: Incurs $26.2 Million Net Loss in First Quarter
-------------------------------------------------------------
Horizon Lines, Inc., filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange
Commission its quarterly report on Form 10-Q disclosing a net loss
of $26.23 million on $251.93 million of operating revenue for the
quarter ended March 23, 2014, as compared with a net loss of
$20.35 million on $244.49 million of operating revenue for the
quarter ended March 24, 2013.

As of March 23, 2014, the Company had $632.12 million in total
assets, $701.39 million in total liabilities and a $69.26 million
total stockholders' deficiency.

"Horizon Lines generated 7.6% higher revenue container volume over
the same period a year ago, driven largely by volume increases in
our Hawaii and Puerto Rico trade lanes, which were partially
offset by lower volumes in our Alaska market," said Sam Woodward,
president and chief executive officer.  "Volume increases in our
Hawaii market were predominantly due to modest growth in the
Hawaii economy, including construction materials and tourism, as
well as an increase in automobile shipments.  Improvement in our
Puerto Rico lift was primarily due to the full quarter impact of
2013's addition of a bi-weekly Jacksonville sailing to our
southbound service between Houston and San Juan, as well as market
share gains in our service between Philadelphia and San Juan."

"Based on our current level of operations, we believe cash flow
from operations and borrowings available under the ABL Facility
will be adequate to support our business plans.  We expect total
liquidity during 2014 to reach a low of approximately $35.0
million during the second quarter, then build over the balance of
the year and end 2014 at approximately $70.0 million," the Company
said in a press release.

In June 2012, Moody's Investors Service affirmed Horizon Lines,
Inc.'s Corporate Family Rating (CFR) and Probability of Default
Rating ("PDR") at Caa2 and removed the LD ("Limited Default")
designation from the rating in recognition of the conversion to
equity of the $228 million of Series A and Series B Convertible
Senior Secured notes due in October 2017 ("Notes").

Moody's said the affirmation of the Corporate Family and
Probability of Default ratings considers that total debt has been
reduced by the conversion of the Notes, but also recognizes the
significant operating challenges that the company continues to
face.


HYDROCARB ENERGY: Board OKs 3:1 Reverse Common Stock Split
----------------------------------------------------------
In order to help Hydrocarb Energy Corporation qualify to be listed
on a major stock exchange, the Company's Board of Directors
approved a 3:1 reverse split of the Company's authorized common
stock and a corresponding 3:1 reverse split of its outstanding
common stock.  This procedure was made pursuant to Nevada Revised
Statutes NRS 78.207.1 and did not require shareholder action.  The
effective date of the reverse split is the opening of business on
May 8, 2014.  Fractional shares will be rounded up to the next
whole share.  The reverse split may enable the Company to obtain a
listing on a stock exchange by increasing the stock price to an
initial listing stock price requirement of a major stock exchange.

The stock symbol will be HECCD for 20 days after the reverse split
effective date and then revert to the current symbol HECC
thereafter.  Should the listing on a major stock exchange occur
before the 20 days are up, the company may trade under the
Company's current symbol HECC at that time.

On the effective date of the reverse split, the Company will have
333,333,334 shares of authorized common stock and 20,962,214
shares of outstanding common stock.  Shareholders do not have to
exchange their pre-split share certificates for post-split share
certificates.

INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENT: Moody's Cuts Rating to Caa2; Outlook Neg.
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgrades to Caa2 and assigns a
negative outlook to the Industrial Development Authority (IDA) of
the County of Maricopa, Arizona Charter Schools Education Revenue
Bonds (Arizona Charter School Project I) Series 2000A and Taxable
Series 2000B outstanding in the approximate amount of $15 million.
The bonds are secured by a direct transfer of State Per Pupil
Operating Revenue to the trustee to fund debt service from charter
schools of varying sizes and credit qualities.

Key structural factors of the pool include available debt service
reserves (in part cross-collateralized among the schools)
providing limited default tolerance, a mortgage on participants'
facilities, a fifteen-year initial charter period, and a 1.2 times
additional bonds test.

Summary Rating Rationale

The downgrade primarily reflects the pending closure of Omega
Academy, the pool's largest participant by debt outstanding (an
estimated $4.9 million of a total $15 million). As a result, Omega
will no longer generate revenues to pay debt service on its share
of total debt. In addition, the rating reflects the credit
qualities of the remaining pool participants, available debt
service reserves and the mortgage on participants' facilities.

The negative outlook reflects the significant uncertainty that
remains regarding the impact that the school closure will have on
the full and timely repayment of the school's bonds. Depending on
the timing of the foreclosure process and the sale of the school's
pledged assets, full and timely payment of school's debt is
uncertain.

Strengths

-- Direct intercept of gross per pupil revenues to pay debt
    service

-- Cross-collateralized reserves

CHALLENGES

-- Largest participant by debt expected to close its doors by
    June 2014

-- Fewer remaining participants

-- Fluctuating enrollment and small size of each participant

What Could Make The Rating Go Up (Remove Negative Outlook)

- Omega Academy charter renewal followed by multi-year trend of
substantially improved financial operations

-- In the event Omega Academy closes, full repayment of
    outstanding debt with no draws on the Liquid Reserve Fund

-- Significant, multi-year trend of improved credit quality and
    increase in enrollment of remaining participants

What Could Make The Rating Go Down

-- Indications that combined proceeds from available reserves
    and sale of assets will be insufficient to repay bondholders
    in a timely manner

-- Weakening of the credit quality of the remaining pool
    participants


INVESTORS CAPITAL: Court Enters Final Decree Closing Ch. 11 Case
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Bankruptcy Court, according to Investors Capital Partners II,
LP's case docket, entered on April 14, 2014, a final decree
closing the Chapter 11 case of the Debtor, discharging trustee, if
applicable, and canceling bond.

The Troubled Company Reporter previously reported that Judge Joan
A. Lloyd dismissed the Debtor's case in a ruling issued in late
March 2014.  The Court issued that ruling in relation to a motion
of PBI Bank, Inc., seeking dismissal or, in the alternative,
conversion of the case into a Chapter 7 liquidation.

PBI Bank asserted that the Debtor has acquired significant
financial losses and is unable to propose a confirmable plan.  The
Bank also alleged the bankruptcy case was filed in bad faith.

The Bankruptcy Court, in early February 2014, denied a Chapter 11
plan proposed by the Debtor, and terminated as moot its motion
regarding certain plan modifications and clarifications.

Counsel for PBI Bank is:

          Bradley S. Salyer
          MORGAN AND POTTINGER, P.S.C.

                   About Investors Capital II

Brentwood, Tennessee-based Investors Capital Partners II, LP and
two affiliates sought Chapter 11 protection (Bankr. W.D. Ky. Case
Nos. 12-11575 to 11677) in Bowling Green, Kentucky, on Dec. 19,
2012.

ICP II estimated assets of at least $10 million and liabilities of
less than $10 million.  It owns a 35-acre commercial development
near Glasgow, Kentucky. The ICP II property is home to a Marquee
Cinema, Dollar Tree, and Aaron's Rents and also consists of seven
parcels of undeveloped land.

Debtor-affiliate Investors Capital Partners I, LP owns multiple
parcels of undeveloped land near Nolensville, Tennessee.
Investors Land Partners II, LP owns partially developed land,
consisting of six adjoining parcels of real property, near
Nashville, Tennessee.

Laura Day DelCotto, Esq., and Amelia Martin Adams, Esq., at
DelCotto Law Group, PLLC, represent the Debtor as counsel.

In court filings, the Debtors said their lenders have attempted to
foreclose against the Debtors' assets, and the Debtors have been
unable to reach agreements with their lenders that would allow the
Debtors to reorganize their debts in an orderly manner; thus, the
Debtors have little option except for the development of a joint
plan to reorganize operations and restructure debts for the
benefit of all creditors and parties in interest.

                            *     *     *

In March 2013, Fitch Ratings affirmed iStar's 'B-' issuer default
rating and revised the outlook to "positive" from "stable."  The
revision of the outlook to positive is based on the company's
demonstrated access to the unsecured debt market, which, combined
with certain secured debt refinancings, have significantly
improved SFI's near-term debt maturity profile.

As reported by the TCR on Oct. 5, 2012, Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services affirmed its 'B+' long-term issuer credit rating on iStar
Financial.

In October 2012, Moody's Investors Service upgraded the corporate
family rating to B2 from B3.  The current rating reflects the
REIT's success in extending near term debt maturities and
improving fundamentals in commercial real estate.  The ratings on
the October 2012 senior secured credit facility takes into account
the asset coverage, the size and quality of the collateral pool,
and the term of facility.

JACOBY & MEYERS: Wants Involuntary Bankruptcy Sent to Chicago
-------------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reported that Jacoby & Meyers Bankruptcy LLP and Macey Bankruptcy
Law PC want their involuntary bankruptcy shifted from Manhattan to
Chicago.

According to the report, several clients and their new lawyers
filed involuntary Chapter 7 petitions in March against the two
firms, which had merged in July 2012, bringing together nationwide
law practices devoted to putting consumers through bankruptcy.
They went out of business in late December, transferring pending
cases to the Law Offices of Jason Blust, according to the
creditors.  The creditors said the two firms executed a so-called
assignment for the benefit of creditors, a non-bankruptcy process
for liquidating assets and making distributions to creditors under
state-law procedures, the report related.

The firms filed papers setting up a hearing on May 28 when they
will tell the Manhattan bankruptcy judge that their principal
business was in Chicago, not New York, the report further related.
If the bankruptcy isn't dismissed, the firms want the case
transferred to Chicago.

The firms don't argue in court papers that they aren't bankrupt,
the report noted.

The case is In re Jacoby & Meyers Bankruptcy LLP, 14-bk-10641,
U.S. Bankruptcy Court, Southern District of New York (Manhattan).

JAMES RIVER: To Pay Critical Vendor Up to $7.5 Million
------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Virginia
authorized James River Coal Company and its debtor-affiliates to
pay all or a portion of their prepetition obligations to certain
critical vendors of up to $7.5 million.

According to the Debtors, the critical vendors are so essential
to their businesses that the lack of any of their particular
goods and services, even for a short duration, could disrupt the
Debtors' operations and cause irreparable harm to the Debtors'
businesses, goodwill, employees, customer base and market share.
This irreparable harm to the Debtors and to the recovery of all
of the Debtors' creditors will far outweigh the cost of payment
of the critical vendor claims.

JAMES RIVER: Can Access $110MM DIP Loan Over Panel's Objection
--------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Virginia
authorized James River Coal Company, et al., to access
$110 million of postpetition financing from a syndicate of
lenders, with Cantor Fitzgerald Securities acting as sole
administrative agent and collateral agent.

The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors noted that the DIP
financing facility is extraordinarily expensive and unduly
restrictive and, therefore, in its current form, should not be
approved.  The Committee added the proposed DIP financing
facility:

   a) inappropriately restricts the Committee's ability to
      challenge the liens granted under the Debtors' pre-petition
      existing agreements;

   b) seeks to waive rights under Bankruptcy Code section 506(c);

   c) deems the automatic stay lifted during the continuance of an
      event of default and inappropriately limits the arguments
      with respect to a hearing to re-impose or continue the
      automatic stay; and

   d) contains other unnecessary and off-market provisions that
      limit the flexibility required by the Debtors under the
      circumstances of these chapter 11 cases.

The Committee argued, as a result, the Debtors fail to meet their
burden of proving that the proposed DIP financing facility is
fair, reasonable and adequate and in the best interests of
creditors.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on April 24, 2014,
the Debtors intended to preserve and enhance their businesses and
continue to explore various strategic alternatives, including a
possible sale of some or substantially all of their assets and/or
a reorganization pursuant to a third-party sponsored plan of
reorganization, through the use a postpetition credit facility
consisting of a $110 million superpriority senior secured debtor
in possession term facility.

Approximately $4.4 million of the DIP facility will be used to pay
all accrued and unpaid fees, expenses and other charges payable
under the prepetition credit facility with General Electric
Capital Corporation, and the amounts outstanding under a Master
Lease Agreement between GECC, as lessor, and James River Coal, as
lessee, dated as of September 19, 2006, and approximately $29.9
million will be used to cash collateralize the existing letters of
credit issued under the prepetition credit facility, thereby
providing the Debtors with $48.1 million of aggregate incremental
liquidity and the ability to maintain their existing letters of
credit.

Other salient terms of the DIP facility are:

     Borrower:       James River Coal Company

     Guarantors:     All of JRCC's debtor subsidiaries.

     DIP Lenders:    A syndicate of financial institutions,
                     arranged by Deutsche Bank Securities Inc., as
                     sole arranger and bookrunner.

     Administrative
     Agent:          Cantor Fitzgerald Securities

     Maturity Date:  The date that is the nine-month anniversary
                     of the closing date.

     Fees:           Agency Fee: The fee payable to the DIP Agent
                     in the amount of $40,000 payable on the date
                     on which the Court enters the Interim DIP
                     Order.

                     Funding Fee: The fee payable to the DIP Agent
                     in the amount of approximately $155,636 for
                     its own account as a Lender under the DIP
                     Credit Agreement.

                     Arranger Fees: The fee payable to the
                     Arranger in the amount of approximately 2.43%
                     of the principal amount of the Loans as set
                     forth in a fee letter between the Arranger
                     and the Debtors, which will be subject to
                     further court approval.

                     OID: The Loans will be issued at a price of

-----------------------------------------------------------
KEMET Corporation reported a net loss of $15.25 million on $215.82
million of net sales for the quarter ended March 31, 2014, as
compared with a net loss of $25.25 million on $199.54 million of
net sales for the same period in 2013.

For the fiscal year ended March 31, 2014, the Company had a net
loss of $69.31 million on $833.66 million of net sales as compared
with a net loss of $82.18 million on $823.90 million of net sales
during the prior fiscal year.

"We are encouraged by the continued and growing strength of our

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.

2013.

In October 2013, Fitch Ratings affirmed the 'B' Issuer Default
Ratings (IDRs) assigned to Level 3.

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.


LEXINGTON REALTY: S&P Revises Outlook to Pos. & Affirms 'BB+' CCR
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services revised its outlook on
Lexington Realty Trust to positive from stable.  At the same time,
S&P affirmed its ratings on Lexington, including the 'BB+'
corporate credit rating and 'BBB-' issue-level ratings.  The
recovery rating on the company's debt remains '2'.

"The positive outlook acknowledges improved key credit measures
that we expect will continue to strengthen," said Standard &
Poor's credit analyst Jaime Gitler.  The company has also
lengthened its weighted average lease term and strengthened the
quality of the asset base.

S&P's ratings on Lexington Realty Trust are derived from the
company's "fair" business risk profile, characterized by a
portfolio of triple-net properties with good geographic, industry,
and tenant diversity.  The company has been transitioning its
portfolio toward longer-term leases and is shifting away from
office assets.  Core performance has been stable, but S&P expects
that cash flow growth will largely come from investment in
acquisitions and development.  Key credit measures have generally
improved over the last year as Standard & Poor's-adjusted debt to
EBITDA remained in the low-7x area and FFC was 2.3x.
These factors support an "intermediate" financial risk profile.

New York City-based Lexington is a midsize REIT that owns a
portfolio of triple-net properties, in which all operating costs
are generally passed through to the tenant.  Lexington owns $4.7
billion (41.6 million square feet) of undepreciated real estate
assets in 41 states as of March 31, 2014.  The company's operating
portfolio includes 205 single-tenant net-lease properties and 15
multi-tenant properties that had originally been single-tenant but
that the company re-tenanted post-vacancy.  S&P considers the
ability to manage lease rollover and re-tenanting vacancy a key
factor in the net-lease segment.  As of March 31, 2014, 3.9% of
base rents expire in 2014 and an additional 5.1% expire in 2015.
Lexington favorably increased its portfolio-weighted average lease
term significantly over the last year (to 11.1 years from 7.2
years) through long duration acquisitions, build-to-suit
deliveries, and capital recycling.  Lexington evaluates both the
corporate credit risk of the tenant and the underlying real estate
in its investment underwriting process.  S&P notes that over
Lexington's 20-year history, the portfolio has had a low number of
tenant defaults.

The positive outlook is based on S&P's expectation that EBITDA
growth accompanied by conservatively financed investment will
result in improved key credit measures.  S&P also believes that
Lexington is attempting to improve the overall quality of the
portfolio and reduce residual risk/specialized assets by
transitioning to longer-term leases.  S&P expects that the company
will be able to sustain debt to EBITDA of about 7.0x and FCC above
2.3x.

S&P could raise the rating if Lexington continues to strengthen
its asset base, cash flows strengthen, and the company were to
manage its investment appetite prudently by financing its growth
with sufficient equity and/or asset sales such that FCC is above
2.4x and debt to EBITDA is below 7.0x on a sustained basis.  This
would more firmly position the company within our "intermediate"
assessment of the financial risk profile.  Under this scenario,
S&P could raise the rating one notch by applying a favorable
comparative rating analysis modifier.  S&P notes that an upgrade
would likely not affect the current 'BBB-' issue-level ratings.

S&P sees limited downside risk to the ratings at this time, given
the company's strengthening leverage and coverage measures.
However, S&P could take negative rating action if FCC measures
drop below 2.1x due to weaker-than-anticipated operating results,
or if the company makes a large debt-financed acquisition.


LIFE CARE: Glenmoor Retirement Community Implements Plan
--------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reported that Life Care St. John's Inc., an adult continuing-care
community 25 miles (40 kilometers) south of Jacksonville, Florida,
has implemented a Chapter 11 reorganization plan that the
bankruptcy court approved in late February.

According to the report, known as Glenmoor, the not-for-profit
project initially said it owed $55.6 million on four bond issues.
The plan calls for distributing two new bond issues totaling $57.1
million, the report related.  One, for $41.7 million, pays 1.34
percent interest until January 2016, when the rate rises to 5.375
percent, the report related.  The bonds mature in 2048 and begin
amortizing principal in 2020, the report said.

The second new issue, for $15.4 million, matures at the same time
and accrues interest at the rate of 2.5 percent that will only be
paid from excess cash flow, the report further related.  Residents
with $7.8 million in refund claims after moving out will be paid
60 percent to 100 percent over time, the report added.

MERITAGE HOMES: Fitch Raises IDR to 'BB-' and Revises Outlook
-------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has upgraded the Issuer Default Rating (IDR) of
Meritage Homes Corporation (NYSE: MTH) to 'BB-' from 'B+'.  The
Rating Outlook is revised to Stable from Positive.  A complete
list of rating actions follows at the end of this release.

KEY RATING DRIVERS

The ratings and Outlook for MTH are influenced by the company's
execution of its business model, conservative land policies,
geographic diversity and healthy liquidity position.  The ratings
and Outlook also take into account Fitch's expectation of further
moderate improvement in the housing market in 2014 and 2015, share
gains by MTH and hence volume outperformance relative to industry
trends as the market continues its focus on trade-up housing
(MTH's strength) and MTH's better profitability and sharply
improved credit metrics.

MTH's sales are reasonably dispersed among its 15 metropolitan
markets within eight states.  During 2012, the company ranked
among the top 10 builders in such markets as Dallas/Fort Worth,
San Antonio and Austin, TX; Orlando, FL; Phoenix, AZ;
Riverside/San Bernardino, CA; Denver, CO; and San
Francisco/Oakland/Fremont and Sacramento, CA.  The company also
builds in the Central Valley, CA; Houston, TX; Inland Empire, CA;
Tucson, AZ; Tampa, FL; and Raleigh-Durham and Charlotte, NC.  MTH
entered the Nashville, Tennessee market with its August 2013
acquisition of Phillips Builders.

Fitch estimates that currently less than 20% of MTH's sales are to
entry level buyers; less than 5% are to active adults (retirees);
less than 5% are to luxury customers; and the balance of the total
are generated from first and second time trade-up customers.

GENERALLY IMPROVING HOUSING MARKET

Comparisons are challenging through first-half 2014, and so far
this year most housing metrics seem to have been short of
expectations and fallen somewhat from a year ago.  Though the
severe winter throughout much of North America restrained some
housing activity, nonetheless, there is an absence of underlying
consumer momentum so far this spring, perhaps due to buyer
sensitivity to higher home prices and finance rates and the
slowing of job growth at year end.

Housing metrics should improve for all of 2014 due to faster
economic growth, and some acceleration in job growth, despite
somewhat higher interest rates, as well as more measured home
price inflation.  Single-family starts are projected to improve
15% to 710,000 as multifamily volume grows about 9% to 335,000.
Thus, total starts this year should top 1 million.  New home sales
are forecast to advance about 16% to 500,000, while existing home
volume is flat at 5.10 million, largely due to fewer distressed
homes for sale.

As Fitch noted in the past, the housing recovery will likely occur
in fits and starts.

SOME EROSION IN HOME AFFORDABILITY

The most recent Freddie Mac 30 year average mortgage rate was
4.21%, down 8 bps sequentially from the previous week and about 80
bps higher than the average rate during the month of January 2013,
a recent low point for mortgage rates.  While the current rates
are still well below historical averages, the sharp increase in
rates and considerably higher home prices in 2013/2014 have
moderated affordability.

Fitch projects that mortgage rates will average 60-80 bps higher
in 2014 (relative to 2013) as the Fed continues to taper and the
economy strengthens.  New home price inflation should moderate in
2014, at least partially because of higher interest rates.
Average and median new home prices should increase about 3.5% in
2014.  However, Fitch's expectations of a more dynamic economic
expansion this year with stronger job growth will more than offset
this lessening in affordability.  This will be particularly the
case for the move-up and active adult markets.

LAND STRATEGY

MTH employs conservative land and construction strategies.  The
company typically options or purchases land only after necessary
entitlements have been obtained so that development or
construction may begin as market conditions dictate.

Under normal circumstances MTH extensively uses lot options, and
that is expected to be the future strategy in markets where it is
able to do so.  The use of non-specific performance rolling
options gives the company the ability to renegotiate price/terms
or void the option, which limits downside risk in market downturns
and provides the opportunity to hold land with minimal investment.
However, as of March 31, 2014, only 26.8% of MTH's lots were
controlled through options - a lower than typical percentage as
there are currently fewer opportunities to option lots and, in
certain cases, the returns for purchasing lots outright are far
better than optioning lots from third parties.

Total lots controlled, including those optioned, were 25,807 at
March 31, 2014.  This represents a 4.8-year supply of total lots
controlled based on trailing 12-months deliveries.  On the same
basis, MTH's owned lots represent a supply of 3.6 years.

MTH began to increase its overall land position during the middle
of 2010 following four years of declining lot supply.  The company
spent roughly $236 million on land purchases during 2010, compared
with $182 million during 2009. In 2011, MTH invested $200 million
in land and $50 million in development.  The company spent $480
million on land and development in 2012.  In 2013 MTH expended
$565 million on real estate including $165-175 million on
development activities.  This year the company may invest $700-750
million in real estate activities, including a couple of hundred
million in land development.  Land banking may play a moderately
more significant role in MTH's land strategy in 2014.

DEBT/LEVERAGE/CASH FLOW

MTH successfully managed its balance sheet during the severe
housing downturn, allowing the company to accumulate cash and pay
down its debt as it pared down inventory.  The company had
unrestricted cash of $261 million and investments and securities
of $77.7 million at March 31, 2014.  The company's debt totaled
$904.9 million at the end of the first quarter 2014.

MTH's debt maturities are well-laddered, with the next debt
maturity in March 2018, when its 4.50% $175 million senior notes
become due.

MTH has been willing to occasionally issue equity. It issued $90
million of common equity during the 3Q 2012.  More recently, in
January 2014 the company issued approximately 2.53 million shares
of common stock for net proceeds of approximately $110 million to
use for working capital, potential expansion into new markets
and/or expansion of existing markets, including the possible
acquisition of other homebuilders or assets, and general corporate
purposes.

In July 2012, the company entered into a new $125 million
unsecured revolving credit facility maturing in 2015.  The
facility was amended during the second quarter of 2013, which
increased the commitment to $135 million and extended the maturity
to 2016.  The size of the facility was subsequently raised further
to $200 million.  There were no outstandings under the revolver as
of March 31, 2014.  Current availability is $164.4 million.

Leverage has been steadily improving in recent years, in
particular during 2013 and into 2014.  The ratio decreased to 3.5x
at the end of the first quarter of 2014 from 7.9x at 4Q end 2012
and 12.0x at the conclusion of 2011.  Interest coverage, which was
2.0x at Dec. 31, 2012, has also been consistently improving -
reaching 5.0x at March 31, 2014.  Fitch expects these credit
metrics will be enhanced during the balance of 2014 with leverage
decreasing to slightly less than 3.5x and interest coverage
expanding in excess of 5x.

As is the case with most builders in our coverage, Fitch expects
MTH will be cash flow negative in 2014.  The company was cash flow
from operations (CFFO) negative $131.7 million in the March 2014
quarter and on an LTM basis was CFFO negative by $217.9 million.
In 2013, 2012 and 2011, the company was negative CFFO by $86.3
million, $220.5 million and $74.1 million, respectively.  Fitch
currently expects MTH will be CFFO negative by almost $100 million
in 2014.  The company is expected to meaningfully increase its
land and development spending in 2014 influencing cash flow.  But
as the cycle matures, real estate spending is likely to level out
in 2015 as profits continue to rise and consequently cash flow
likely will turn positive.

Fitch is comfortable with this real estate strategy given the
company's liquidity position and debt maturity schedule.  Fitch
expects MTH over the next few years will maintain liquidity
(consisting of cash and investments and the revolving credit
facility) of at least $350 million - $400 million, a level which
Fitch believes is appropriate given the challenges/risks still
facing the industry.

RATING SENSITIVITIES

Future ratings and Outlooks will be influenced by broad housing-
market trends as well as company specific activity, such as trends
in land and development spending, general inventory levels,
speculative inventory activity (including the impact of high
cancellation rates on such activity), gross and net new order
activity, debt levels and especially free cash flow trends and
uses, and the company's cash position.

Further positive rating actions may be considered if the recovery
in housing is better than Fitch's current outlook and shows
durability; MTH shows sustained improvement in credit metrics
(such as homebuilding debt to EBITDA consistently at or below
3.5x); and the company continues to maintain a healthy total
liquidity position consisting of cash, short term investments and
credit facility availability (above $350 million).

A negative rating action could be triggered if the industry
recovery dissipates; 2014 and 2015 revenues each drop in excess of
20% while pretax profitability approaches 2011 levels; and MTH's
liquidity position falls sharply, perhaps below $300 million as
the company maintains an overly aggressive land and development
spending program.

Fitch has taken the following rating actions on MTH:

   -- IDR upgraded to 'BB-' from 'B+';
   -- Senior unsecured debt affirmed at 'BB-'.

With the upgrade of MTH's IDR to 'BB-' from 'B+', recovery ratings
are no longer assigned to individual debt instruments.  MTH's
senior unsecured notes are rated at the same level as the
company's IDR.

The Rating Outlook is revised to Stable from Positive.


METRO-GOLDWYN-MAYER: S&P Revises Outlook to Pos. & Affirms B+ CCR
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services revised its rating outlook on
Beverly Hills, Calif.-based Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Inc. (MGM) to
positive from stable.  At the same time, S&P affirmed its ratings
on the company, including the 'B+' corporate credit rating.

"The outlook revision reflects MGM's prospects for somewhat
manageable debt leverage over the next several years despite plans
to produce an annual film slate of four to six films," said
Standard & Poor's credit analyst Chris Valentine.

S&P expects the ratio of discretionary cash flow to debt to remain
above 20% through, 2015 based on the stability of the library and
recent deleveraging.  This has occurred as a result of good
balance sheet management following the standout performance of
"James Bond" and "Hobbit" in 2013.  S&P do not expect leverage to
remain at the current level of 0.7x, but do expect leverage to
remain somewhat manageable for a film studio over the next 12
months.  An upgrade to 'BB-' is predicated on maintaining
manageable debt leverage levels while building a more diversified
cash flow base to reduce volatility, especially after the
principal cash flows of the final "Hobbit" film and the next
"James Bond" film are received.

"We regard MGM's business risk profile as "weak" because of the
company's small scale of production, as well as the risks
associated with new films other than the "James Bond" and "Hobbit"
franchises, which along with the library, currently account for
the bulk of MGM's revenue and EBITDA.  MGM faces the risk of
losses and write-downs on new releases in 2014 and beyond as it
pursues steady production and cash flow, but do recognize some of
these films are sequels that performed well.  MGM and the industry
benefit from growing international box office revenues that help
cushion a long-term secular decline in U.S. domestic theatrical
attendance.  Standard-format DVD sales have been declining
industrywide, as consumption of home entertainment continues its
shift to digital formats.  Total home entertainment revenues
stabilized for much of 2013, but dipped in the first quarter of
2014, according to the Digital Entertainment Group, despite
digital growth.  Visibility regarding total home entertainment
revenue trends is limited," S&P said.

"Our assessment of MGM's financial risk profile as "significant"
reflects its extremely high level of historical cash flow
volatility, despite manageable debt leverage for a film studio
based on the current level of 0.7x.  Under our base-case scenario,
we expect leverage could rise to about 2x over the next 12 months,
if MGM draws on its revolving credit facility to fund feature film
production.  Despite leverage lower than the 3x-4x range with
which we typically associate a significant financial risk profile,
our financial risk assessment reflects the very high cash flow
volatility and formidable upfront cash requirements inherent in
the film studio business," S&P added.

S&P could consider an upgrade if the company significantly
broadens its ongoing base of cash flow and continues to maintain
its current moderate leverage levels.  This includes establishing
new film franchises that register box office success following the
conclusion of the current franchises, ensuring healthy ongoing
EBITDA and positive discretionary cash flow.  Profitable growth of
the TV production segment, which could reduce earnings volatility
and improving margins, also could contribute to an upgrade
scenario.  Any upgrade scenario would likely require further
clarity regarding financial policy and a firm commitment from
management to keep discretionary cash flow to debt above 20%, even
after cash flows from the "Hobbit" series are largely realized in
2015.

S&P could revise the outlook to stable if the company is unable to
generate new franchises to replace "Hobbit," resulting in minimal
discretionary cash flow generation and rising debt.  A shift that
involves higher-average-cost films, or a higher annual output with
fewer franchise films, could result in more earnings and cash flow
volatility.  Additionally, a significant debt-financed acquisition
that S&P concludes will push discretionary cash flow to debt below
20%, with no prospects for returning above 20%, could result in a
downgrade.  Finally, increases in shareholder-favoring actions
that also push discretionary cash flow to debt below 20% could
result in a downgrade.


MF GLOBAL: Judge Axes Execs' Appeal of Customer Pay Ruling
----------------------------------------------------------
Law360 reported that a New York federal judge rejected former MF
Global Inc. executives' appeal of a ruling that let the fallen
brokerage's liquidating trustee pay off commodities customers and
transfer mismanagement claims, saying they were trying to put the
trustee in a Sophie-esque position.

According to the report, in a 26-page opinion U.S. District Judge
Victor Marrero affirmed U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Martin Glenn's
November ruling that allowed Securities Investment Protection Act
Trustee James A. Giddens to distribute the final remaining amounts
owed to customers who lost their investments when MF Global went
under. Judge Marrero found that the appellants, who included
former MF Global chief Jon Corzine and PricewaterhouseCoopers LLC,
were essentially looking to force the trustee to either sacrifice
customers' right to immediate repayment or sacrifice creditors'
right to any repayment.

"At bottom, appellants are trying to put the trustee, like Sophie,
in a forbidding dilemma between two extreme choices: one awful,
the other equally so," the judge wrote in the decision, the report
related.  "Under appellants' view of the law, the trustee must
either pay customers now and forgo pursuit of other property that
might be used to satisfy other creditors, or pursue that other
property but force customers to wait indefinitely for funds that
could be made available to them now."

Judge Glenn's ruling last fall allowed $305 million in general
estate funds to be moved from the general estate to an account for
the commodities customers, whose money was part of the $1.6
billion that went missing in October 2011, the report further
related.

Eight former MFGI officials, including Corzine, who were also
battling class action claims surrounding their alleged mishandling
of customer money took issue with the provision of the order
allowing the customers to transfer any claims they hold against
the executives with respect to the mismanagement of their funds to
Giddens, the report said.  Judge Glenn overruled their objections
and the executives appealed his decision in December.

The case is MF Global Holdings LTD. et al v. Giddens, Case No.
1:13-cv-08893 (S.D.N.Y.).

to 39.1% from the plan.  As a consequence of a settlement with
JPMorgan, supplemental materials informed unsecured creditors
their recovery was reduced to the range of 11.4% to 34.4%.  Bank
lenders will have the same recovery on their $1.174 billion claim
against the holding company.  As a consequence of the settlement,
the predicted recovery became 18% to 41.5% for holders of $1.19
billion in unsecured claims against the finance subsidiary,
one of the companies under the umbrella of the holding company
trustee.  Previously, the predicted recovery was 14.7% to 34% on
bank lenders' claims against the finance subsidiary.

As of March 31, 2014, the Company had $25.35 billion in total

                          About MGM Resorts

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

MGM Resorts reported a net loss attributable to the Company of
$1.76 billion in 2012 as compared with net income attributable to
the Company of $3.11 billion in 2011.

                        Bankruptcy Warning

"We have a significant amount of indebtedness maturing in 2015 and
thereafter.  Our ability to timely refinance and replace such
indebtedness will depend upon the foregoing as well as on
continued and sustained improvements in financial markets.  If we
are unable to refinance our indebtedness on a timely basis, we
might be forced to seek alternate forms of financing, dispose of
certain assets or minimize capital expenditures and other
investments.  There is no assurance that any of these alternatives
would be available to us, if at all, on satisfactory terms, on
terms that would not be disadvantageous to us, or on terms that
would not require us to breach the terms and conditions of our
existing or future debt agreements."

"Our ability to comply with these provisions may be affected by
events beyond our control.  The breach of any such covenants or
obligations not otherwise waived or cured could result in a
default under the applicable debt obligations and could trigger
acceleration of those obligations, which in turn could trigger
cross defaults under other agreements governing our long-term
indebtedness.  Any default under our senior credit facility or the
indentures governing our other debt could adversely affect our
growth, our financial condition, our results of operations and our
ability to make payments on our debt, and could force us to seek
protection under the bankruptcy laws," the Company said in its
annual report for the year ended Dec. 31, 2012.

                           *     *     *

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

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

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

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

MODERN PRECAST: Liquidating Trustee Balks at Case Conversion Bid
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Bankruptcy Court continued until May 22, 2014, at 11:00 a.m.,
to consider the motion to compel VCW Enterprises, Inc., d/b/a M&W
Precast, f/k/a Modern Precast Concrete, Inc. et al., to file
reports and pay fees, or in the alternative, convert the case to
one under Chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code.

On March 28, the Liquidating Trustee asked that the Court deny the
motion by the U.S. Trustee.

The Liquidating Trustee said the U.S. Trustee's motion sought to
compel the Liquidating Trustee to file post-confirmation
distribution reports for the fourth quarter of 2013, and that the
post-confirmation distribution report for the first quarter of
2014, while not yet due, will be due approximately five days after
the hearing on the motion.  The Liquidating Trustee averred that
no distributions were made in the fourth quarter of 2013 and a
report evidencing that fact will be filed with the Court on or
before the date of the hearing on the motion.

The Liquidating Trustee further averred that the first quarter
2014 report will be filed in a timely manner.

The Liquidating Trustee also said that, as he advised the Office
of the U.S. Trustee in February, he is collecting additional funds
from preference defendants and will be in a position to make full
payment of all outstanding fee obligations within days of the date
of the hearing on the motion.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on April 2, 2014,
the U.S. Trustee explained that the Debtor's plan was confirmed on
May 30, 2013, but that the Debtor failed to file and serve the
post-confirmation reports required by local bankruptcy rules and
the trustee's operating guidelines for the fourth quarter of 2013.
Moreover, the Debtor is not current on payment of post-
confirmation fees to the UST pursuant to 28 U.S.C. Sec.
1930(a)(6), which cannot be determined without the required
reports.

---------------------------------------------------------------
Ronald W. Burkle, Yucaipa American Management, LLC, Yucaipa

rights.

The Yucaipa Parties said they weren't informed about the board
meeting that took place on April 22, 2014.  While they were
invited to a board meeting held on May 4, 2014, the Yucaipa
Parties maintain they were excluded from certain topics, including
the distress and resulting ongoing restructuring discussions
surrounding the Mondrian Soho.

"We are a major owner, we are interested in participating in
discussions and decisions concerning the operation of Morgans'
business and the performance of its assets.  These are clearly
mandated by our observation rights but as stated above, are being

NE OPCO: Committee Defends Trust Agreement
------------------------------------------
The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors of NE Opco Inc.
and NEV Credit Holdings Inc. responds to the objection filed by
Spirit SPE Portfolio 2006-4 LLC regarding the Committee's request
for entry of order approving a trust agreement and a stock escrow
agreement, and authorizing the transfer of the Debtors' remaining
assets to a trustee.

According to the Committee, Spirit's Objection seeks to re-
litigate and rewrite a final order that was entered by the Court
in July 2013 after a full evidentiary hearing to approve a
settlement which avoided significant litigation costs and risks
among major constituencies in these cases that could have drained
the Debtors' estates and prevented any opportunity at maximizing
value.  Spirit wants to require the Trustee to assume the Debtors'
obligations to Spirit under the Spirit lease because Spirit now
regrets the uncertainty it has placed itself in.

The Committee says Spirit -- as its basis for seeking
reconsideration of the settlement -- cherrypicks one isolated
phrase from a sentence in the settlement motion to create an
argument that the settlement agreement was always intended to pay
other administrative creditors in addition to section 503(b)(9)
claims.  The underlying papers, however, could not have been
clearer.  The settlement agreement was only intended to provide
for payment to section 503(b)(9) claims and general unsecured
claims in accordance with its terms.  The actual terms of the
settlement agreement do not mention or include provisions for the
payment of administrative claims generally, the Committee notes.

In September 2013, Cenveo, Inc. acquired certain assets of
National Envelope through the bankruptcy process.  As part of the
consideration for the acquisition, Cenveo issued approximately 2.1
million shares to the debt holders of National Envelope.

The Committee argues that Spirit's objection should be overruled
for three basic reasons:

   -- the objection is premature.  As the objection indicates,
      Spirit and the Debtors negotiated and stipulated to extend
      the period for the Debtors and Cenveo to address how to
      treat the Spirit lease until May 31, 2014.  There is no
      basis under the Bankruptcy Code to require that the
      Trustee of the Liquidating Trust be required to assume
      Spirit's agreement, which may be assumed by the Debtors in
      any case and cured by the Debtors. Even if the Debtors do
      not assume the Spirit lease, the Trustee is not a debtor-in-
      possession and cannot assume agreements under section 365(a)
      of the Bankruptcy Code.  If the Spirit Lease is rejected,
      then Spirit will be able to assert a general unsecured claim
      for rejection damages like all other unsecured creditors
      against the assets of the Liquidating Trust or assert an
      administrative claim against the estate.

   -- Spirit seeks to overturn and effectively rewrite a final
      order that was entered by the Court in July 2013 that
      approved the settlement agreement upon which the motion and
      liquidating trust are based.  Spirit has participated in
      these chapter 11 cases since the very beginning, served as
      an ex officio member of the Committee, and received notice
      of the settlement motion and related objections, but it
      failed to file its own objection and failed to appeal the
      settlement order. As such, as a matter of law Spirit is now
      estopped from relitigating the issues or seeking to attack
      the Settlement Order.

   -- the law of the case doctrine precludes Spirit from
      relitigating the settlement motion through its objection to
      the motion and formation of the liquidating trust because
      the same issues raised in the objection have already been
      litigated and finally decided by this Court.  For the
      foregoing reasons and as set forth below, the Objection
      should be overruled.

                          About NE OPCO, Inc.

National Envelope is the largest privately-held manufacturer of
envelopes in North America.  Headquartered in Frisco, Texas,
National Envelope has eight plants and 15 percent of the envelope
market.  Revenue of $427 million in 2012 resulted in a $60.1
million net loss, continuing an unbroken string of losses since
2007.

NE OPCO, Inc., doing business as National Envelope, along with
affiliate NEV Credit Holdings, Inc., filed petitions seeking
relief under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code (Bankr. D. Del.
Lead Case No. 13-11483) on June 10, 2013.

The company disclosed liabilities including $148.4 million in
secured debt, with $37.5 million owing on a revolving credit and
$15.6 million on a secured term loan.  There is a $55.7 million
second-lien debt 82 percent held by a Gores Group LLC affiliate.

National Envelope, then known as NEC Holdings Corp., first sought
Chapter 11 protection (Bankr. D. Del. Lead Case No. 10-11890) on
June 10, 2010.  The business was bought by Gores Group LLC for
$208 million in a bankruptcy sale.

National Envelope, through NE OPCO, has returned to bankruptcy to
pursue a plan of reorganization or sell the assets as a going
concern via 11 U.S.C. Sec. 363.  The Debtor plans to facilitate a
sale of the business with publicly traded competitor Cenveo Inc.

In the 2013 case, the company tapped the law firm Richards, Layton
& Finger as counsel, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP as financial
adviser, and Epiq Bankruptcy Solutions as claims and notice agent.

The Gores Group is represented by Weil, Gotshal and Manges LLP and
Lowenstein Landler LLP.  Salus Capital Partners, the DIP agent, is
represented by Choate, Hall & Stewart LLP and Morris Nichols Arsht
& Tunnell LLP.   Wells Fargo Capital Finance, LLC, the prepetition
senior agent, is represented by Goldberg Kohn Ltd and DLA Piper.

The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors is represented by
Pachulski Stang Ziehl & Jones LLP's Laura Davis Jones, Esq.,
Bradford J. Sandier, Esq., Robert J. Feinstein, Esq., and Peter J.
Keane, Esq.  Guggenheim Securities, LLC, serves as its investment
banker and financial advisor.

National Envelope won court approval on July 19, 2013, for a
global settlement permitting a sale of the company without
objection from the official unsecured creditors' committee.  The
settlement ensures some recovery for unsecured creditors.  The
Company also won final approval for $67.5 million in bankruptcy
financing being supplied by Salus Capital Partners LLC.

Judge Christopher Sontchi authorized three buyers to acquire
National Envelope's business for a total of about $70 million.
Connecticut-based printer Cenveo Inc. acquired National Envelope's
operating assets for $25 million, Hilco Receivables LLC picked up
accounts receivable for $25 million and Southern Paper LLC took on
its inventory for $15 million.


NEOMEDIA TECHNOLOGIES: YA Global Waives Breach Under Agreements
---------------------------------------------------------------
NeoMedia Technologies, Inc., received a written notification from
YA Global Investments, L.P., irrevocably and unconditionally

and all agreements, securities, notes, debentures, or other
arrangements between the Company and YA resulting or arising in
connection with the Company's downgrade from the OTC Market Group
OTCQB tier stock market exchange to the OTC Pink tier stock market
exchange.

The downgrade occurred on May 1, 2014, and was due to a new OTC

maintained a minimum bid price of $0.01 per share as of the close
of business for at least one of the previous 30 consecutive
calendar days to be downgraded to the OTC Pink tier stock market
exchange.

NORTEL NETWORKS: Battle Over Billions Begins In US, Canada Courts
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Tom Hals, writing for Reuters, reported that judges in Wilmington,
Delaware, and Toronto jointly kicked off a novel cross-border
trial on May 12 to divvy up the $7.3 billion that was raised in
the liquidation of once-mighty telecoms equipment maker Nortel
Networks, which went bust in 2009.

According to Reuters, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Kevin Gross and
Ontario Superior Court Justice Frank Newbould heard opening
arguments on the morning of May 12 from four attorneys: two in
Wilmington and broadcast in Toronto, and two in Toronto and
broadcast in Wilmington.

The judges must decide how to allocate the money among former
Nortel businesses in Canada, the United States and Europe.
Administrators overseeing those former Nortel business units
cannot repay creditors, make up pension shortfalls or pay off
Nortel bonds until they know how much money they will receive,
Reuters said.  The gallery pews in Judge Gross's Delaware
courtroom were replaced with eight large desks, each with two
monitors, that allowed the attorneys to follow Justice Newbould
and oral argument in Toronto, Reuters added.

"Good morning Judge Gross, it's good to see you so clearly,"
Reuters cited Matt Gottlieb, a lawyer at Lax O'Sullivan Scott
Lisus, as saying as he began his oral argument in Toronto. He
appeared in one of three windows on each of the desktop monitors
in Wilmington as well as on two large wall displays installed in
the court.

Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News, said
mediation didn't resolve disputes about how sale proceeds should
be distributed among Nortel companies around the world.

                        About Nortel Networks

Headquartered in Ontario, Canada, Nortel Networks Corporation and
its various affiliated entities provided next-generation
technologies, for both service provider and enterprise networks,
support multimedia and business-critical applications.  Nortel did
business in more than 150 countries around the world.  Nortel
Networks Limited was the principal direct operating subsidiary of
Nortel Networks Corporation.

On Jan. 14, 2009, Nortel Networks Inc.'s ultimate corporate parent
Nortel Networks Corporation, NNI's direct corporate parent Nortel
Networks Limited and certain of their Canadian affiliates
commenced a proceeding with the Ontario Superior Court of Justice
under the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act (Canada) seeking
relief from their creditors.  Ernst & Young was appointed to serve
as monitor and foreign representative of the Canadian Nortel
Group.  That same day, the Monitor sought recognition of the CCAA
Proceedings in U.S. Bankruptcy Court (Bankr. D. Del. Case No.
09-10164) under Chapter 15 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.

That same day, NNI and certain of its affiliated U.S. entities
filed voluntary petitions for relief under Chapter 11 of the U.S.
Bankruptcy Code (Bankr. D. Del. Case No. 09-10138).

In addition, the High Court of England and Wales placed 19 of
NNI's European affiliates into administration under the control of
individuals from Ernst & Young LLP.  Other Nortel affiliates have
commenced and in the future may commence additional creditor
protection, insolvency and dissolution proceedings around the
world.

On May 28, 2009, at the request of administrators, the Commercial
Court of Versailles, France, ordered the commencement of secondary
proceedings in respect of Nortel Networks S.A.  On June 8, 2009,
Nortel Networks UK Limited filed petitions in U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for recognition of the English Proceedings as foreign main
proceedings under Chapter 15.

U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Kevin Gross presides over the Chapter 11 and
15 cases.  Mary Caloway, Esq., and Peter James Duhig, Esq., at
Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney PC, in Wilmington, Delaware, serves as
Chapter 15 petitioner's counsel.

In the Chapter 11 case, James L. Bromley, Esq., at Cleary Gottlieb
Steen & Hamilton, LLP, in New York, serves as the U.S. Debtors'
general bankruptcy counsel; Derek C. Abbott, Esq., at Morris
Nichols Arsht & Tunnell LLP, in Wilmington, serves as Delaware
counsel.  The Chapter 11 Debtors' other professionals are Lazard
Freres & Co. LLC as financial advisors; and Epiq Bankruptcy
Solutions LLC as claims and notice agent.

The United States Trustee appointed an Official Committee of
Unsecured Creditors in respect of the U.S. Debtors.  An ad hoc
group of bondholders also was organized.

Fred S. Hodara, Esq., at Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP, in
New York, and Christopher M. Samis, Esq., at Richards, Layton &
Finger, P.A., in Wilmington, Delaware, represent the Official
Committee of Unsecured Creditors.

An Official Committee of Retired Employees and the Official
Committee of Long-Term Disability Participants tapped Alvarez &
Marsal Healthcare Industry Group as financial advisor.  The
Retiree Committee is represented by McCarter & English LLP as
Delaware counsel, and Togut Segal & Segal serves as the Retiree
Committee.  The Committee retained Alvarez & Marsal Healthcare
Industry Group as financial advisor, and Kurtzman Carson
Consultants LLC as its communications agent.

Several entities, particularly, Nortel Government Solutions
Incorporated and Nortel Networks (CALA) Inc., have material
operations and are not part of the bankruptcy proceedings.

As of Sept. 30, 2008, Nortel Networks Corp. reported consolidated
assets of $11.6 billion and consolidated liabilities of $11.8
billion.  The Nortel Companies' U.S. businesses are primarily
conducted through Nortel Networks Inc., which is the parent of
majority of the U.S. Nortel Companies.  As of Sept. 30, 2008, NNI
had assets of about $9 billion and liabilities of $3.2 billion,
which do not include NNI's guarantee of some or all of the Nortel
Companies' about $4.2 billion of unsecured public debt.

Since the commencement of the various insolvency proceedings,
Nortel has sold its business units and other assets to various
purchasers.  Nortel has collected roughly $9 billion for
distribution to creditors.  Of the total, $4.5 billion came from
the sale of Nortel's patent portfolio to Rockstar Bidco, a
consortium consisting of Apple Inc., EMC Corporation,
Telefonaktiebolaget LM Ericsson, Microsoft Corp., Research In
Motion Limited, and Sony Corporation.  The consortium defeated a
$900 million stalking horse bid by Google Inc. at an auction.  The
deal closed in July 2011.

Nortel has filed a proposed plan of liquidation in the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court.  The Plan generally provides for full payment on
secured claims with other distributions going in accordance with
the priorities in bankruptcy law.

Judge Gross and the court in Canada scheduled trials in 2014 on
how to divide proceeds among creditors in the U.S., Canada, and
Europe.

OHCMC-OSWEGO: Taps CBRE Inc. to Provide Brokerage Services
----------------------------------------------------------
OHCMC-OSWEGO, LLC, asks the Bankruptcy Court for permission to
employ CBRE, Inc., to provide real estate brokerage services
related to the sale of the Debtor's real estate assets.

Pursuant to an exclusive right to sell or lease agreement, CBRE
will be compensated by the Debtor in the form of 4% of the gross
sale price or exchange value of the property.

The Debtor also requests that CBRE not be required to submit a fee
application to the Court for approval because its compensation is
limited to a set percentage of any sale or lease.  If CBRE will
not succeed in a sale or lease, CBRE is not entitled to
compensation.  The Debtor anticipates that CBRE will be paid the
agreed upon commission at the time of closing any sale or
executing any lease of the property.

CBRE disclosed that it provides services throughout the United
States to several parties-in-interest in the bankruptcy
proceeding, including the prepetition lenders, BMO Harris Bank,
N.A. and PNC Bank, N.A.; however, such services are unrelated to
the Debtor's real property to be listed by CBRE.

CBRE has also had an ongoing business relationship with Hudson
Burnham Development Partners, a potential purchaser of the
Debtor's real estate, with respect to possible land acquisition
deals throughout the Chicago area.  The work CBRE has performed
for Hudson Burnham represents less than .001% of CBRE's annual
revenue.

Prior to the filing of the Debtor's bankruptcy case, CBRE worked
with Hudson Burnham to submit a letter of intent to the Debtor for
the possible purchase of the Debtor's real estate assets.  If
Hudson Burnham was able to acquire the Debtor's real estate assets
pursuant to that letter of intent, CBRE would have been paid a
commission by Hudson Burnham.

As part of CBRE's retention by the Debtor in the bankruptcy case,
CBRE is terminating its agreement to receive any amounts from
Hudson Burnham in connection with the Debtor's real estate.

Accordingly, CBRE is a "disinterested person" as that term is
defined in Section 101(14) of the Bankruptcy Code.

PACIFIC VECTOR: OSC Grants Temporary Management Cease Trade Order
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Pacific Vector Holdings Inc. on May 8 disclosed that it has been
granted a Temporary Management Cease Trade Order by its principal
regulator, the Ontario Securities Commission.  As previously
announced on May 1, 2014 an application for an MCTO was made by
the Company in respect of the late filing of its annual financial
statements, accompanying Management Discussion and Analysis and
related CEO and CFO Certifications of such annual filings for the
financial year ended January 5, 2014.

The Temporary MCTO restricts all trading in securities of the
Company, whether direct or indirect, by the Chief Executive
Officer and the Chief Financial Officer of the Company until such
time as the Required Filings have been filed by the Company.  All
other parties are permitted to freely trade the Company's
securities.  The OSC has given notice of a hearing to be held on
May 20, 2014 for the purpose of extending the Temporary MCTO until
the Company has remedied the default and filed the Required
Filings.

As previously announced the Company was not in a position to
timely file the required Filings, primarily as a result of
additional time required to secure financing and, subsequently,
for its auditors to be compensated in order to complete the audit
of the Corporation's financial statements.  The Company's board of
directors and management confirm that they are working
expeditiously with the Company's auditors to meet the Company's
obligations relating to the filing of the Required Filings.  The
Corporation expects to file the Required Filings on or before
June 13, 2014.

The Company confirmed that it intends to satisfy the provisions of
the alternative information guidelines found at sections 4.3 and
4.4 of Policy statement 12-203 respecting Cease Trade Orders for
Continuous Disclosure Defaults, for as long as it remains in
default as a result of the late filing of the Required Filings.
During the period of default, the Corporation will issue default
report status reports as required on each of May 15, May 29 and
June 10 in the form of further press releases, which will also be
filed on SEDAR.  The Corporation confirmed there are no insolvency
proceedings against it at the date of this release.  The
Corporation also confirmed that there is no other material
information concerning the affairs of the Corporation that has not
been generally disclosed as of the date of this press release.

PARKER BROS: Owners Fail in Bid to Reopen BB&T Suit
---------------------------------------------------
BRANCH BANKING AND TRUST COMPANY, Plaintiff, v. ROBERT J. PARKER;
and JANIS J. PARKER, Defendants, Case No. 6:12-cv-539-Orl-37DAB
(M.D. Fla.), is a breach of contract action seeking to enforce the
terms of a guarantee agreement into which the Defendants had
entered to secure a loan for their corporation, Parker Bros., Inc.
After the Plaintiff obtained a default judgment against the
Defendants as to their liability on the Parker Bros. note, the
Defendants notified the Court that they had filed a joint petition
for a Chapter 11 reorganization.  The Court accordingly stayed
this action pursuant to 11 U.S.C. Sec. 362.

The Defendants now move to reopen the case and set aside the
default judgment.  The Defendants acknowledge that their Chapter
11 proceedings have not yet been resolved.  Nevertheless, they
bring their motion without any indication that the bankruptcy
court has granted them relief from the automatic stay or that the
stay has lapsed.

In a May 5, 2014 Order available at http://is.gd/h9yxsKfrom
Leagle.com, District Judge Roy B. Dalton, Jr., said the
Defendants' motion is due to be denied without prejudice.  "Having
previously confirmed that the automatic stay applies to this case,
the Court cannot now set aside its prior rulings, as any
substantive determinations made while the stay is in place would
be 'void and without effect'. . . .  Defendants will be permitted
to refile their motion after their bankruptcy proceedings have
concluded or after they have otherwise secured from the bankruptcy
court relief from the automatic stay," Judge Dalton said.

Parker Bros., Inc., based in Kissimmee, Florida, filed a Chapter
11 petition (Bankr. M.D. Fla. Case No. 13-07781) on June 24, 2013.
Judge Cynthia C. Jackson presides over the case.  Aldo G
Bartolone, Jr., Esq., at Bartolone Legal Group PA, serves as the
Debtor's bankruptcy counsel.  Parker Bros. scheduled assets of
$2,805,804 and liabilities of $1,446,433.  A list of its largest
unsecured creditors, filed together with the petition, is
available for free at http://bankrupt.com/misc/flmb13-7781.pdf
The petition was signed by Robert J. Parker, president.


PEABODY ENERGY: S&P Lowers Corp. Credit Rating to 'BB-'
-------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it lowered its corporate
credit rating on St. Louis, Mo.-based Peabody Energy Corp. to
'BB-' from 'BB'.  The outlook is stable.  As a result, S&P lowered
the issue-level ratings on the senior secured debt and senior
unsecured debt to 'BB' (in line with the corporate credit rating)
from 'BB+' and to 'BB-' (one notch below the corporate credit
rating) from 'BB', respectively.

The recovery ratings remain unchanged, with a '2' on the senior
unsecured debt indicating S&P's expectation for a substantial (70%
to 90%) recovery in the event of a payment default, and a '4'
recovery rating on the senior unsecured debt indicating S&P's
expectation for an average (30% to 50%) recovery in the event of a
payment default.

"The stable outlook is based on our assumption that coal prices
have bottomed out and that domestic thermal coal prices should
improve as demand from utilities increases, dropping leverage back
just below 5x in 2015," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst
Chiza B. Vitta.

S&P could lower the rating further if market conditions continue
to deteriorate, causing leverage to rise above S&P's 7x estimate
for 2014 or above its threshold in 2015.  S&P could also lower its
rating if the cushion relating to secured leverage and interest
covenants dropped below 15%, but S&P expects Peabody would be able
to negotiate covenant relief given its view that it has sound
relationships with lenders.

An upgrade is unlikely in the next 12 months given S&P's
expectation for difficult operating conditions in that time frame,
particularly for the company's Australian mining operations.

POLYPORE INTERNATIONAL: Moody's Withdraws B1 Corp. Family Rating
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service announced that it has withdrawn the
ratings for Polypore International, Inc. (Polypore) following the
company's announcement that it has completed the redemption of its
$365 million 7.5% senior notes due 2017. Following the completion
of this redemption, Moody's no long rates any of the company's
debt.

On April 8, 2014 the Polypore refinanced its senior secured credit
facilities (approximately $281 million outstanding balance on its
term loan as of December 28, 2013) with new senior secured credit
facilities, comprised of a $150 million revolver and $500 million
term loan maturing on April 8, 2019. The company also announced at
that time that it would use borrowings under the new facilities
and cash on hand to redeem its $365 million 7.5% senior notes due
2017, resulting in a lower overall level of debt and interest
costs. Cash on hand at December 28, 2013 was $163.4 million.

Ratings withdrawn:

B1, Corporate Family Rating;

B1-PD, Probability of Default Rating;

B3 (LGD5, 76%), $365 million 7.5% senior notes due 2017;

SGL-2, Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating;

Stable rating outlook

The new senior secured credit facilities are not rated by Moody's.

Commission its quarterly report on Form 10-Q disclosing a net loss
attributable to common shareholders of $976,000 on $9.89 million
of interest income for the three months ended March 31, 2014, as
compared with a net loss attributable to common shareholders of
$524,000 on $11.25 million of interest income for the same period
during the prior year.

attributable to common shareholders of $105.15 million in 2011.

Crowe Horwath, LLP, in Louisville, Kentucky, issued a "going
concern" qualification on the consolidated financial statements
for the year ended Dec. 31, 2013.  The independent auditors noted
that the Company has incurred substantial losses in 2013, 2012 and
2011, largely as a result of asset impairments.  In addition, the
Company's bank subsidiary is not in compliance with a regulatory
enforcement order issued by its primary federal regulator
requiring, among other things, increased minimum regulatory
capital ratios.  Additional losses or the continued inability to
comply with the regulatory enforcement order may result in
additional adverse regulatory action.  These events raise
substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a
going concern.

                         Bankruptcy Warning

The Company had consolidated indebtedness and capital lease
obligations, including current maturities, of $383.3 million as of
Dec. 31, 2013.  The Company must make regular payments under the
ABL Facility, including the $17.5 million senior secured term loan
facility that was fully funded on July 15, 2013, and the Company's
capital leases and semi-annual interest payments under its 2018
Notes.

"The ABL Facility matures August 2016.  Obligations under the Term
Loan mature on June 14, 2016 or the earlier date on which the ABL
Facility terminates.  The maturity date of the ABL Facility,
including the Term Loan, may be accelerated if we default on our
obligations.  If the maturity of the ABL Facility and/or such
other debt is accelerated, we may not have sufficient cash on hand
to repay the ABL Facility and/or such other debt or be able to
refinance the ABL Facility and/or such other debt on acceptable
terms, or at all.  The failure to repay or refinance the ABL
Facility and/or such other debt at maturity would have a material
adverse effect on our business and financial condition, would
cause substantial liquidity problems and may result in the
bankruptcy of us and/or our subsidiaries.  Any actual or potential
bankruptcy or liquidity crisis may materially harm our
relationships with our customers, suppliers and independent
affiliates," the Company said in the Annual Report for the year
ended Dec. 31, 2013.

As reported in the TCR on June 28, 2013, Moody's Investors Service
upgraded Quality Distribution, LLC's Corporate Family Rating to B2
from B3 and Probability of Default Rating to B2-PD from B3-PD.

The upgrade of Quality's CFR to B2 was largely driven by the
expectation that credit metrics will improve over the next twelve
to eighteen months, through a combination of EBITDA growth and
debt paydowns, to levels consistent with the B2 rating level.  The
company is in the process of integrating the bolt-on acquisitions
made in its Energy Logistics business sector since 2011.

remedy its unsustainable leverage," said Standard & Poor's credit

on May 12 the Amended Joint Prepackaged Chapter 11 Plan of
Reorganization of QCE Finance, LLC, and its debtor affiliates,
after determining that the Plan satisfies confirmation
requirements laid out under the Bankruptcy Code.

The Court's order paves the way for the Quiznos chain to exit
bankruptcy in about 10 or so weeks since filing for Chapter 11.

Quiznos filed the Amended Plan on May 18.

A copy of the Court's order is available at

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

According to Joseph Checkler, writing for The Wall Street Journal,
Judge Peter Walsh of U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Wilmington, Del.,
approved the proposal in fewer than 20 minutes.  Quiznos filed for
a "prepackaged" Chapter 11 bankruptcy in March after cutting a
deal with senior lenders, including Oaktree Capital Management,
LP, to swap $444 million in senior debt for $200 million in new
debt and a 70% stake in the restructured Quiznos, the Journal
related.  The Plan cuts Quiznos's debt by about two-thirds to $400
million, the Journal noted.

The Journal, citing a news release, related that Quiznos Chief
Executive Stuart K. Mathis called the approval an "important
milestone" in the case "We thank our senior lenders, as well as
the committee representing our general unsecured creditors and
their advisors, who worked with us constructively to position us
to complete our financial restructuring in an expedited manner,"
Mr. Mathis said.

Law360 reported that a group of former executives for Quiznos
sandwich chain owner QCE Finance LLC fought the company's Chapter
11 plan, objecting that it includes illegal debtor plans to sue
them over claims that they had deceptively lured investors during
a previous restructuring.

According to Law360, the executives filed an objection to the
QCE's disclosure statement and reorganization plan, saying they
left before or upon closing an out-of-court restructuring deal in
2012. As part of the deal, they gave up equity and contractual
benefits and received a covenant not to sue from debtors Fortress
and Avenue Capital, Law360 said.

However, in a bankruptcy declaration, the debtors announced plans
to sue the ex-executives for alleged fraud and breach of fiduciary
duty to recover money for unsecured investors, the executives
allege, Law360 related.  Stephanie Gleason, writing for Daily
Bankruptcy Review, reported that the group of former Quiznos
executives said that the sandwich chain's Chapter 11 bankruptcy-
exit plan -- which contemplates a lawsuit against them, brought by
owners Avenue Capital and Fortress -- fails to mention that
Quiznos's 2012 restructuring cleared the top brass of liability.

"[The] debtors seek approval of their disclosure statement and to
cram down on former manager creditors a Chapter 11 plan that
violates important statutory mandates," the executives said in the
objection, the DBR report related.

QCE's Chapter 11 plan aims to slash its more than $600 million in
debt by about two-thirds and includes an option for second-lien
and unsecured creditors to get either equity in the sandwich
company or a portion of proceeds from the lawsuit planned against
the former brass, the DBR report added.

Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reported that Quiznos also got final approval for $15 million in
financing to carry the franchisor of 2,100 sandwich stores until
the scheduled May 12 confirmation hearing.  Quiznos also got court
approval for a settlement with a dozen franchisees who didn't
participate in a prior class lawsuit, the Bloomberg report said.

The Delaware bankruptcy judge, according to Law360, signed off on
a deal between the company that owns sandwich chain Quiznos and a
dozen franchisees suing the company in Colorado, resolving more
than $40 million in total claims and providing for mutual
litigation releases.  Law360 said the relief was one of several
requests by Quiznos' parent, QCE Finance, that Judge Walsh green
lit, including the final approval for the well-known sandwich
chain's $15 million debtor-in-possession loan extended by a group
of first-lien lenders.

At the May 12 hearing, Judge Walsh also entered:

RADIOSHACK CORP: Unable to Agree With Lenders on Closure Program
----------------------------------------------------------------
RadioShack Corporation previously announced that it was seeking
consent from its lenders under the 2018 Credit Agreement and 2018
Term Loan to pursue a program to close up to 1,100 stores.  The
terms on which the lenders are currently willing to provide this
consent are not acceptable to the Company.  While the Company may
continue to have discussions with its lenders regarding the
proposed store closure program, the Company is continuing with a
plan to close fewer stores and pursuing other cost reduction
measures permitted under the existing terms of the 2018 Credit
Agreement and 2018 Term Loan.

assets, $1.21 billion in total liabilities and $394 million in
total stockholders' equity.

                           *     *     *

As reported by the TCR on Dec. 26, 2013, Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services raised the corporate credit rating on the Fort Worth,
Texas-based RadioShack Corp. to 'CCC+' from 'CCC'.  "The upgrade
reflects an improved liquidity position with a recent financing
that increased funded debt by $125 million and increased the
company's revolving credit borrowing capacity, which improved
the company's liquidity by approximately $200 million," said
credit analyst Charles Pinson-Rose.

In the Dec. 30, 2013, edition of the TCR, Fitch Ratings has
affirmed its 'CCC' Long-term Issuer Default Rating (IDR) on
RadioShack Corporation.  The IDR reflects the significant decline
in RadioShack's profitability and cash flow, which has become
progressively more pronounced over the past two years.

As reported by the TCR on March 6, 2013, Moody's Investors Service
downgraded RadioShack Corporation's corporate family rating to
Caa1 from B3 and probability of default rating to Caa1-PD from B3-
PD.  RadioShack's Caa1 Corporate Family Rating reflects Moody's
opinion that the overall business strategy of the company to
reverse the decline in profitability has not gained any traction.

Troubled Company Reporter, citing The Wall Street Journal,
reported on March 5, 2014, that RadioShack plans to cut back its
store count, after a sharp drop in sales over the holidays left it
with a $400 million loss in 2013.  The electronics retailer said
it could close as many as 1,100 U.S. stores -- one out of every
four that it operates itself -- underscoring the difficulty it has
had adapting to a fast changing consumer landscape.

----------------------------------------------------------------

ROBERT MARC EDELMAN: Drexel Highlander Wins Favorable Judgment
--------------------------------------------------------------
Bankruptcy Judge Barbara J. Houser ruled that Drexel Highlander
Limited Partnership is entitled to judgment against Robert Marc
Edelman on the following claims and in the following amounts, to
the extent not duplicative of each other, as DHLP is entitled to
only a single recovery:

     (1) trespass with actual damages of $302,400 and exemplary
         damages of $75,000;

     (2) breach of fiduciary duty for (i) occupying Unit 2F for
         56 months, rent free, with actual damages of $302,400
         and exemplary damages of $150,000, (ii) for causing
         illegal commissions to be paid to Edelman's wife, Diana,
         on the sale of Drexel Highlander condominium units with
         actual damages of $462,604.50 and exemplary damages of
         $250,000, and (iii) actions related to his handling of
         the Disputed Draws with actual damages of $2,475,605.65
         and exemplary damages of $1,000,000;

     (3) violation of the Texas Theft Liability Act with actual
         damages of $2,475,605.65, statutory damages of $1,000,
         and exemplary damages of $1,000,000; and

     (4) fraud by nondisclosure with actual damages of
         $462,604.50 and exemplary damages of $250,000.

DREXEL HIGHLANDER LIMITED PARTNERSHIP, DGP, LLC, and R. GLENN
WIGGINS, PLAINTIFFS, v. ROBERT MARC EDELMAN AND DIANA EDELMAN,
DEFENDANTS, Adv. Proc. No. 13-03078-BJH, Consolidated with Adv.
Proc. No. 13-03126-BJH (Bankr. N.D. Tex.), arises from the
prepetition business relationship between R. Glenn Wiggins, and
Mr. Edelman, both of whom owned and/or managed various companies
that collectively planned, constructed, operated, and ultimately
leased or sold multi-family housing units.  The business entities
relevant to the adversary proceeding are Drexel Highlander Limited
Partnership, who owned the condominium complex at issue; DGP, LLC,
who was DHLP's general partner; and non-party Drexel Development
Company, LLC, who served as a construction management company for
the condominium project.  Wiggins, who had no significant prior
real estate experience, provided financial support and personal
guarantees to the project, while Edelman, who had prior real
estate experience, managed the project on a day-to-day basis.

The parties' business relationship began to materially deteriorate
in the fall of 2010 when Wiggins learned of allegations of
improper dealings against Edelman in relation to a project that
was separate from the Drexel Highlander and subject to a different
ownership structure.  Wiggins inquired whether it was true that
Edelman had put up several hundred thousand dollars to settle the
allegations, which struck Wiggins as contrary to Edelman's alleged
prior statements that he had no money. In relation to this
conversation, Edelman disclosed that approximately $400,000 had
been transferred from DDC, a company Edelman jointly owned with
Wiggins, to the separate project to satisfy real estate taxes.
When Edelman inquired whether that amount would be repaid to DDC,
Edelman answered no, the other project had no ability to repay
DDC.  Wiggins then retained counsel and took steps to remove
Edelman from his position of control over the companies.

DHLP, DGP, and Wiggins filed suit against Edelman and his wife
Diana 3 on May 10, 2011 in the District Court of Dallas County,
Texas 162nd Judicial District, commencing Case No. DC-411-00769-1.
The Plaintiffs, either individually or collectively, asserted
various state-law claims against Edelman, including: (1) trespass,
(2) breach of fiduciary duty, (3) violation of the Texas Theft
Liability Act, (4) common law fraud, (5) fraud by nondisclosure,
(6) breach of contract, and (7) conversion.  The Plaintiffs also
sought to recover exemplary damages on their claims, as well as
reasonable attorneys' fees and costs.

Shortly before the commencement of trial on the State Court
Lawsuit, Edelman filed for protection under Chapter 11 of the
Bankruptcy Code (Bankr. N.D. Tex. Case No. 13-31182) on March 4,
2013.

The Plaintiffs then removed the State Court Lawsuit to the U.S.
District Court for the Northern District of Texas, which referred
it to the Bankruptcy Court pursuant to the Standing Order of
Reference.

The Court held a trial in this consolidated adversary proceeding
on March 10-11, 2014.  At the conclusion of the trial, the Court
directed briefing on several issues raised at trial. The last of
the post-trial briefs was submitted on March 24, following which
the Court took the matter under advisement.

SAN BERNARDINO, CA: Continues Fight Against CalPers
---------------------------------------------------
Rick Lyman and Mary Williams Walsh, writing for The New York
Times, reported that when San Bernardino took the unprecedented
step in 2012 of stopping its required pension contributions --
arguing that it could not otherwise make payroll -- other
financially stressed California cities took notice: Could San
Bernardino defy Calpers, the powerful agency that administers the
state's huge pension system?

The resistance ended last year when the city resumed its payments,
the report said. But now, NY Times continued, San Bernardino is in
another fight with Calpers that could embolden other
municipalities seeking relief from crippling payments to the
nation's largest public pension system.

"We are under the microscope, no question about it," said Carey
Davis, 61, the mayor, the report cited.  "San Bernardino took a
different approach in bankruptcy as related to pensions, and
everybody is waiting to see how it comes out."

At issue is the $17 million in back payments and penalties that
San Bernardino failed to make between declaring bankruptcy in
August 2012 and resuming payments in July, the report added.
Calpers has maintained that it is owed in full. But now in
bankruptcy negotiations, the city is hoping to pay only a fraction
of that, arguing that the city's creditors must all share in the
bankruptcy pain. The amount may be small, given the system's
assets, but if San Bernardino gets a reduction, the precedent
could be huge, opening the door to other struggling municipalities
using bankruptcy law to justify delaying or withholding payments
to the pension system.

                  About San Bernardino, Calif.

San Bernardino, California, filed an emergency petition for
municipal bankruptcy under Chapter 9 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code
(Bankr. C.D. Cal. Case No. 12-28006) on Aug. 1, 2012.  San
Bernardino, a city of about 210,000 residents roughly 65 miles
(104 km) east of Los Angeles, estimated assets and debts of more
than $1 billion in the bare-bones bankruptcy petition.

The city council voted on July 10, 2012, to file for bankruptcy.
The move lets San Bernardino bypass state-required mediation with
creditors and proceed directly to U.S. Bankruptcy Court.

The city is represented that Paul R. Glassman, Esq., at Stradling
Yocca Carlson & Rauth.

San Bernardino joined two other California cities in bankruptcy:
Stockton, an agricultural center of 292,000 east of San Francisco,
and Mammoth Lakes, a mountain resort town of 8,200 south of
Yosemite National Park.

The City was granted Chapter 9 protection on Aug. 28, 2013.


SEARS HOLDINGS: Stockholders Elect Seven Directors

2014, at which the stockholders:

   (1) elected Cesar L. Alvarez, Paul G. DePodesta, William C.
       Kunkler, III, Edward S. Lampert, Steven T. Mnuchin, Ann N.

                            About Sears

Hoffman Estates, Illinois-based Sears Holdings Corporation
(Nasdaq: SHLD) -- http://www.searsholdings.com/-- operates full-
line and specialty retail stores in the United States and Canada.
Sears Holdings operates through its subsidiaries, including Sears,
Roebuck and Co. and Kmart Corporation.  Sears Holdings also owns a
94 percent stake in Sears Canada and an 80.1 percent stake in
Orchard Supply Hardware.  Key proprietary brands include Kenmore,
Craftsman and DieHard, and a broad apparel offering, including
such well-known labels as Lands' End, Jaclyn Smith and Joe Boxer,
as well as the Apostrophe and Covington brands.  It also has the
Country Living collection, which is offered by Sears and Kmart.

Kmart Corporation and 37 of its U.S. subsidiaries filed voluntary
Chapter 11 petitions (Bankr. N.D. Ill. Lead Case No. 02-02474) on
Jan. 22, 2002.  Kmart emerged from chapter 11 protection on May 6,
2003, pursuant to the terms of an Amended Joint Plan of
Reorganization.  John Wm. "Jack" Butler, Jr., Esq., at Skadden,
Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, LLP, represented the retailer in its
restructuring efforts.  The Company's balance sheet showed
$16,287,000,000 in assets and $10,348,000,000 in debts when it
sought chapter 11 protection.  Kmart bought Sears, Roebuck & Co.,
for $11 billion to create the third-largest U.S. retailer, behind
Wal-Mart and Target, and generate $55 billion in annual revenues.
Kmart completed its merger with Sears on March 24, 2005.

Sears Holdings reported a net loss of $1.36 billion in 2013, a net
loss of $930 million in 2012 and a net loss of $3.14 billion in
2011.  As of Feb.1, 2013, the Company had $18.26 billion in total
assets, $16.07 billion in total liabilities and $2.18 billion in
total equity.

                            *    *     *

Moody's Investors Service in January 2014 downgraded Sears
Holdings Corporate Family Rating to Caa1 from B3.  The rating
outlook is stable.

The downgrade reflects the accelerating negative performance of
Sears' domestic business with comparable sales falling 7.4% for
the quarter to date ending January 6th, 2014 compared to the prior
year. The company now expects domestic Adjusted EBITDA to decline
to a range of ($80 million) to $20 million for the fourth fiscal
quarter, compared with $365 million in the year prior period. For
the full year, Sears expects domestic Adjusted EBITDA loss between
$(308) million and $(408) million, as compared to $557 million
last year. Moody's expects full year cash burn (after capital
spending, interest and pension funding) to be around $1.2 billion
in 2013 and we expect Sears' cash burn to remain well above $1
billion in 2014. "Operating performance for fiscal 2013 is
meaningfully weaker than our previous expectations, and we expect
negative trends in performance to persist into 2014" said Moody's
Vice President Scott Tuhy.  He added "While Sears noted improved
engagement metrics for its "Shop Your Way" Rewards program,
Moody's remains uncertain when these improved engagement metrics
will lead to stabilization of operating performance."

As reported by the TCR on March 26, 2014, Standard & Poor's
Ratings Services affirmed its ratings on the Hoffman Estate, Ill.-
based Sears Holdings Corp., including the 'CCC+' corporate credit
rating.


SI ORGANIZATION: Moody's Assigns B3 CFR; Outlook Revised to Neg.
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has changed the rating outlook of The SI
Organization, Inc. ("The SI") to negative from stable and affirmed
the B3 Corporate Family Rating. Concurrently, Ba3 ratings have
been assigned to a planned first lien $450 million bank facility
and a B3 rating has been assigned to a planned $140 million second
lien term loan facility. Debt proceeds will refinance the
company's existing bank debt and fund the pending $165 million
QinetiQ North America Services and Solutions Group ("QNA SSG")
acquisition. The negative rating outlook considers significant
downside risk owing to high financial leverage pro forma for the
transaction, a difficult government services operating environment
and The SI's historically modest cash flow generation which
tempers the forward view. Yet the B3 CFR has been affirmed because
the contemplated facilities-- with low annual amortization
scheduled and covenant light terms -- should limit near-term
default risk and preserve financial flexibility. If The SI can
successfully integrate the two similarly sized businesses, cash
flow potential could meaningfully rise from revenue and cost
synergies.

Ratings:

Corporate Family, affirmed at B3

Probability of Default, affirmed at B3-PD

$50 million first lien revolver due 2019, assigned at Ba3, LGD2,
20%

$350 million first lien term loan due 2019, assigned at Ba3, LGD2,
20%

$50 million first lien delayed draw term loan due 2019, assigned
at Ba3, LGD2, 20%

$140 million second lien term loan due 2020, assigned at B3, LGD4,
55%

$40 million first lien revolver due 2015, affirmed at B1, LGD2,
25% (to be withdrawn at transaction close)

$345 million first lien term loan due 2016, affirmed at B1, LGD2,
25% (to be withdrawn at transaction close)

Rating Outlook:

To Negative from Stable

Ratings Rationale

The negative rating outlook considers an elevated risk of
downgrade if high financial leverage, pro forma for the debt
funded acquisition, does not materially decline near-term. Yet the
prospect of lower leverage seems challenged as an extensive
operational restructuring lies ahead and The SI's historical free
cash flow generation may continue at a modest level. Moody's
estimates debt/EBITDA pro forma for the transaction of 7x-8x-- a
range that depends on both the degree of unusual and restructuring
charges added back, and business combination synergies assumed.
Since 2011 QNA SSG's revenues have been declining at about 12%
annually and operating margins have been low. Overhead cost
actions planned should quickly help raise operating margin and may
help make QNA SSG's future bids more price competitive, but high
execution risk will exist. The SI has not before undertaken a
transformational acquisition, let alone one of a business that is
significantly contracting. Since the 2010 LBO The SI has realized
an annual free cash flow to debt metric of 2%-3%, modest among
highly leveraged, asset-light defense contractors.

Attaining revenue traction, particularly at QNA SSG, will be key
to better credit metrics but the external business environment for
federal services contractors has been softening. Federal
procurement reforms have made the government's services
procurements more competitive and agencies remain highly focused
on continued discipline. The tighter procurement environment
presents a complicating factor for the earnings outlook. Long
acquisition cycle times and a trend toward competitively priced
multiple award contract vehicles under which task awards of short
duration are frequently bid, will sustain competitive intensity.
If not legislated away, sequestration budgetary caps in the
government's FY2016 will add pressure.

The affirmed B3 CFR nonetheless recognizes potentially better
earnings and cash flow metrics from the business combination. QNA
SSG's customer relationships and presence across a number of
equipment-related programs could help The SI establish
credentials, well regarded within the intelligence community, in
civilian and military agencies. The broader direct labor
qualifications of the combined business could enable contract
positions that neither business could have achieved independently.
At present The SI possesses few task award opportunities under
larger, indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) vehicles,
something that will emerge from the transaction. With federal
procurement reforms, The SI's narrow market focus has limited
bidding opportunities as larger contractors have started to bid
more broadly, a constraint for the rating. The rating affirmation
does recognize that The SI has demonstrated noteworthy contract
re-compete and award fee statistics, and that the company's
revenue declines have been less pronounced of late versus services
contractors with similar intelligence community focus.

Expectation of adequate liquidity also supports the CFR. The first
lien bank facility will feature a covenant light structure whereby
a financial maintenance test will only apply if the revolver
utilization rises above a set threshold; the second lien facility
will not feature a maintenance covenant. If the company can
maintain a free cash flow generative operating position with low
working capital swings, risk of covenant breach should remain low,
giving flexibility to execute the integration, grow earnings and
prepay term loan borrowings.

The Ba3 rating assigned to the planned first lien bank credit
facility, three notches above the CFR, reflects the presence of
$140 million of second lien and $175 million of subordinated debt.
In a stress scenario, these junior claims would absorb much loss,
benefiting recovery of first lien claims. The B3 rating assigned
to the planned second lien facility reflect the subordinated debt
presence. Absent other changes to the capital structure, full
funding of the delayed draw term loan to cover contingent earn-out
payments on QNA SSG, would not likely disturb the first lien's
three-notch rating uplift.

The ratings could be downgraded with debt/EBITDA continuing above
7x in 2015, low or just break even free cash flow, or a weakening
liquidity profile. Stabilization of the rating outlook would
follow expectation of debt/EBITDA sustained below 7x, FCF/debt in
the low single digit percentage range and an adequate liquidity
profile. Although not currently envisioned, the ratings could be
upgraded with debt/EBITDA of 6x or less, rising backlog, and
FCF/debt in the high single digit percentage range.

The SI Organization, Inc. ("The SI") provides advanced systems
engineering and integration ("SE&I") services to U.S. government
intelligence agencies as well as related modeling, simulation,
analysis and risk mitigation services. Revenues over 2013 were
about $650 million. The company is majority-owned by entities of
Veritas Capital.


SIMPLY WHEELZ: $100 Million in Auto Loans Approved
--------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reported that Advantage Rent A Car has won final approval for $100
million in secured financing allowing the delivery of 4,760 new
cars by June.

As reported by The Troubled Company Reporter, the Debtors sought
authority from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District
of Mississippi to enter into a postpetition lease and credit
facility with Westlake Services LLC and The Catalyst Capital
Group, Inc., to be serviced by HFC Acceptance, LLC, in an
aggregate principal amount of $100 million.

The Debtor has ordered and expects delivery during the next three
months of approximately 4,760 vehicles, plus orders to be placed,
for which the financing from the DIP transaction is needed.  The
Debtor says there exists an immediate need for credit to finance
the vehicles under the DIP transaction.  The DIP transaction will
allow the Debtor, among other things, to acquire replacement fleet
as it transitions out of the Hertz-leased vehicles the Debtor
presently is leasing.

SINCLAIR BROADCAST: Posts $27.6-Mil. Net Income in First Quarter
----------------------------------------------------------------
Sinclair Broadcast Group, Inc., reported net income of $27.65
million on $412.64 million of total revenues for the three months
ended March 31, 2014, as compared with net income of $16.87
million on $282.61 million of total revenues for the same period
in 2013.

"There were many positives in the first quarter that reflect our
solid underlying fundamentals, despite the slower than usual start
to the year due to the impact of the severe and frigid weather in
many of our markets," commented David Smith, president and CEO of
Sinclair.  "The first quarter benefited from incremental Super
Bowl, Olympic and retransmission consent fee revenues, while
political revenues exceeded expectations.  We also benefited from
lower television operating expenses across many of our stations.
Our main focus now is on closing the Allbritton station
acquisition and lobbying to reform broadcast ownership regulatory
inequality."

"As we look to the remainder of the year, early indications are
that the political season could heat up more than we originally
anticipated," commented David Amy, executive vice president and
chief operating officer.  "The automotive industry also appears to
be redeploying advertising budgets that they reduced as a result
of the bad weather that impacted much of the country in the first
quarter.  Although we are seeing some weakness in FOX prime-time,
CBS ratings remain strong and NBC ratings are improving.  For the
upcoming Fall season, we have added major syndicated programs to
many station line-ups, adding more strength to those stations."

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

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

Meeting Room.  Creditors have until Sept. 9, 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.

Skyline Manor, Inc., filed a Chapter 11 bankruptcy petition
(Bankr. D. Neb. Case No. 14-80934 ) on May 8, 2014.  The petition
was signed by John W. Bartle as chief restructuring officer.
The Debtor estimated assets of at least $10 million and
liabilities of between $10 million to $50 million.  Judge
Thomas L. Saladino presides over the case.

As reported by the TCR on June 27, 2013, Moody's Investors Service
downgraded Stanadyne Holdings Inc.'s Corporate Family Rating to
Caa2 from Caa1 to reflect Moody's view that a debt restructuring
is likely in the near-term.

long-term outlook to negative from stable on Windsor, Conn.-based
Stanadyne Corp. At the same time, Standard & Poor's affirmed its
ratings, including the 'CCC+' corporate credit rating, on
Stanadyne.

"The outlook revision reflects the risk that Stanadyne may not be
able to service debt obligations of its parent, Stanadyne Holdings
Inc. as early as August 2012," said Standard & Poor's credit
analyst Dan Picciotto.

STOCKTON, CA: Trial to Determine Exit From Chapter 9 Commences
--------------------------------------------------------------
Robin Respaut, writing for Reuters, reported that the bankrupt
city of Stockton, California, will face off against a holdout
creditor in a closely watched municipal bankruptcy case pitting
the rights of impaired bondholders against retirees and other
creditors.  According to Reuters, at issue is whether the northern
California city, which filed for Chapter 9 bankruptcy protection
almost two years ago, can effectively wipe out the claims of one
creditor while treating others far more favorably and leaving city
employee pensions untouched.

The main objector to the city's plan of adjustment is the
investment firm Franklin Templeton, whose Franklin High Yield Tax-
Free Income Fund and Franklin California High Yield Municipal Fund
would receive less than a penny on the dollar, Reuters related.
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News, said
Franklin believes the plan is fatally defective because its high-
yield bond funds would receive a "miniscule" payment of $94,000 on
$35 million in debt when other creditors are to be paid 52 percent
to 100 percent over 40 years.  Franklin, Mr. Rochelle said,
contends the plan violates bankruptcy law's good faith requirement
because the city's "massive" pension liability will be paid in
full while it receives "essentially no recovery."

"It's going to be a real, serious, issue-raising trial," Reuters
cited David Tawil, president of Maglan Capital, a hedge fund that
focuses on distressed situations, as saying.

"What we're finding now in municipal bankruptcies is the pensions
-- the obligations which are the most onerous -- don't get
touched," said Tawil, Reuters added.  "The judge is going to have
to say that [Stockton is] not touching the largest debt pool and,
nonetheless, this is still a feasible plan."

                      About Stockton, Calif.

The City of Stockton, California, filed a Chapter 9 petition
(Bankr. E.D. Cal. Case No. 12-32118) in Sacramento on June 28,
2012, becoming the largest city to seek creditor protection in
U.S. history.  The city was forced to file for bankruptcy after
talks with bondholders and labor unions failed.  Stockton
estimated more than $1 billion in assets and in excess of
$500 million in liabilities.

The city, with a population of about 300,000, identified the
California Public Employees Retirement System as the largest
unsecured creditor with a claim of $147.5 million for unfunded
pension costs.  In second place is Wells Fargo Bank NA as trustee
for $124.3 million in pension obligation bonds.  The list of
largest creditors includes $119.2 million owing on four other
series of bonds.

The city is being represented by Marc A. Levinson, Esq., and John
W. Killeen, Esq., at Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP.  The
petition was signed by Robert Deis, city manager.

Mr. Levinson also represented the city of Vallejo, Cal. in its
2008 bankruptcy.  Vallejo filed for protection under Chapter 9
(Bankr. E.D. Cal. Case No. 08-26813) on May 23, 2008, estimating
$500 million to $1 billion in assets and $100 million to $500
million in debts in its petition.  In August 2011, Vallejo was
given green light to exit the municipal reorganization.   The
Vallejo Chapter 9 plan restructures $50 million of publicly held
debt secured by leases on public buildings.  Although the Plan
doesn't affect pensions, it adjusts the claims and benefits of
current and former city employees.  Bankruptcy Judge Michael
McManus released Vallejo from bankruptcy on Nov. 1, 2011.

The bankruptcy judge on April 1, 2013, ruled that the city of
Stockton is eligible for municipal bankruptcy in Chapter 9.

SYMPHONY TELECA: Moody's Assigns 'B2' CFR; Outlook Stable
---------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has assigned first-time corporate family
and probability of default ratings ("CFR" and "PDR", respectively)
of B2 and B2-PD, respectively, to Symphony Teleca Services, Inc.
(Symphony Teleca). Concurrently, Moody's assigned B2 ratings to
the proposed $10 million senior secured revolving credit facility
due 2019 and $115 million secured term loan due 2019. The rating
outlook is stable.

The proceeds from the financing will be used to fund the
acquisition of Aditi Technologies Private Limited (Aditi) for
about $64 million of initial cash consideration, refinance
existing debt, and provide cash for general corporate purposes.
The assigned ratings are subject to review of final documentation
and no material change in the terms and conditions of the
transactions.

Ratings Rationale

The B2 CFR reflects Symphony Teleca's integration challenges with
the Teleca merger (in 2012) and the proposed acquisition of Aditi,
an Indian based outsourced product development company. For the
past 2 and a half years, Symphony Teleca has incurred negative
free cash flow as the company continues to reduce costs following
steep declines of Teleca's handset program revenues. As the
restructuring process has continued into 2014, Moody's believes
that improved profitability (e.g., double digit operating margins)
may take more than one year to materialize, especially without a
track record of execution. For an engineering based business
model, the significant headcount cuts could slow anticipated
revenue growth or weaken service quality, both of which could
weigh on profit margins. In addition, Symphony Teleca will likely
need to re-invest some of the cost savings into faster growth
offerings and end market verticals to support its high revenue
growth targets.

The rating also considers Symphony Teleca's small size and scale
relative to larger and financially stronger information technology
(IT) services providers and lower profitability than its Indian
outsourcing peers. At the same time, the B2 rating is supported by
relatively low leverage, which Moody's projects to be less than
4.5 times adjusted debt to EBITDA in 2015, and good liquidity with
about $40 million of cash upon close of the financing. Symphony
Teleca will also likely benefit from favorable industry dynamics
in which the outsourced R&D engineering segment should outpace the
growth of the overall IT services market of low to mid single
digits over the next year.

The stable outlook reflects Moody's expectation that Symphony
Teleca will generate annual revenue and profit growth of at least
mid single digits through 2015. Moody's also anticipates a free
cash flow to debt ratio in the mid to high single digits. The
stable outlook incorporates Moody's expectation that no
significant dividends will be paid to the owners and no
acquisitions will be made until Teleca and Aditi are largely
integrated.

The ratings could be upgraded if Symphony Teleca were to
demonstrate double digit organic revenue growth, solid
improvements in operating margins over 15%, and free cash flow to
debt in the double digits with adjusted debt to EBITDA maintained
at about 3 times. Downward ratings pressure could arise if
Symphony Teleca's revenue declines, adjusted operating profit
margins dips to the low single digits, or liquidity deteriorates
(e.g., negative free cash flow; cash balance falls below $20
million).

The following first-time ratings/assessments were assigned:

Corporate Family Rating -- B2

Probability of Default Rating -- B2-PD

Senior Secured Revolving Credit Facility -- B2 (LGD3, 44%)

Senior Secured Term Loan -- B2 (LGD3, 44%)

With projected annual revenues nearing $400 million, Symphony
Teleca is a global outsourced provider of R&D engineering services
and software solutions. The company is majority owned by the
Symphony Technology Group.


TEXAS COMPETITIVE: S&P Assigns 'BB+' Rating to $4.475BB Facility
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it assigned its point-in-
time 'BB+' rating to Texas Competitive Electric Holdings Co. LLC's
(TCEH) $4.475 billion DIP credit facility due May 2016.  The DIP
facilities that TCEH has requested court approval of consists of
a $1.95 billion revolving credit facility; a $1.425 billion
nonamortizing term loan, $800 million of which is available to
cash collateralize letters of credit; and a $1.1 billion delayed
draw term loan.

Currently, the U.S. Bankruptcy Court has only approved $800
million of revolving capacity, $800 million of term loan capacity,
all of which can be used to post letters of credit, and $1.1
billion of delayed draw capacity.  S&P's analysis assumes that the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court will permit TCEH to obtain all the DIP
financing it has requested.  This rating only applies to the DIP
facility and does not represent the expected rating on any
successor loan if this DIP facility is converted into exit
financing.

Because the DIP facility rating is a point-in-time rating, it is
effective only for the date of this report, and S&P will not
review, modify, or provide ongoing surveillance of the rating.
The rating is established using our global corporate criteria.

Under this approach, S&P has assessed the credit risk of the DIP
loan by evaluating:

   -- The likelihood a company will be able to successfully
      reorganize and emerge from bankruptcy as a going concern and
      be able to attract sufficient exit financing to fully repay
      the DIP financing at emergence.

   -- This evaluation forms the anchor for the DIP issue rating.

   -- The potential for a company to repay the DIP financing
      through the liquidation of its assets, assuming that it is
      unable to successfully reorganize and emerge from
      bankruptcy.

   -- DIP financing S&P assumes is sufficiently over-
      collateralized to be fully repaid in a liquidation analysis
      may benefit from a one- or two-notch enhancement over the
      anchor score, depending on our estimated level of coverage.

Taken together, a DIP issue rating captures S&P's analytical
assessment of the viability (reorganizabilty) of a company's
business and the amount of the DIP obligation relative to the
company's value--both as a reorganized entity and on a liquidation
basis.

Key elements of our assessment of the company's ability to
reorganize and fully repay the DIP loan at emergence include:

   -- S&P's assessment of TCEH's restructuring needs and
      challenges,

   -- The company's business position and operating outlook,

   -- The adequacy of its liquidity during bankruptcy, and

   -- The extent to which TCEH's going concern value exceeds the
      expected DIP loan exposure.

S&P assumed that the total DIP balance at emergence would be $3.2
billion, reflecting a small unused portion of the revolving credit
facility and term loan.  S&P do not think the company will make
any draws on the $1.1 billion delayed draw facility.  This DIP
exposure represents about 25% of S&P's estimated enterprise value.
Even under a liquidation scenario in which EBITDA is materially
lower and the sale EBITDA multiple is also lower, the coverage of
the maximum DIP exposure would be about 207%.  As such, S&P
applied a two-notch enhancement to its underlying risk assessment
of 'BB-', which results in an overall DIP facility rating of
'BB+'.

This analysis included, among other things, a review of the DIP
facility credit agreement dated May 5, 2014, the Interim Order
issued by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court dated May 2, 2014, and company
cash flow forecasts.  The credit agreement does not allow the
debtors or obligate the lenders to convert the DIP to an exit
financing.

             Files for Summary Judgment in Florida Court

Top Shelf Brands filed a motion for summary judgment in the case
pending in Florida asking the court that is holding the shares to
agree the certificates were improperly issued and are void.  These
shares have been deposited to the courts registry and the suit was
filed after initially asking Clear Trust Transfer to cancel 1
billion shares and 60 preferred class A shares that were
improperly issued to former directors.  Clear Trust Transfer
initially failed to cancel the shares that were returned requiring
the filing of this suit to protect our shareholders.

"We're fighting for our shareholders due to former directors
creating a new series of stock purely to regain control of the
public entity.  This move didn't add value to the company and was
done explicitly to protect their own interests, not the interests
of the existing shareholders.  As we move closer to cleaning the
company up there are a couple of things that just should not be
allowed," Alonzo Pierce, CEO stated.  "As a steward of this
company, in order to be taken seriously we have to attack our
obstacles head on and not allow anything to get in the way of the
companies shareholders or the companies business plan.  We won't
sit by idly and watch as unscrupulous individuals try to take
advantage of the common shareholder," continued Pierce.

TRIAD GUARANTY: Exclusive Periods Extension Approved
----------------------------------------------------
BankruptcyData reported that the U.S. Bankruptcy Court approved
Triad Guaranty's second motion to extend the exclusive period
during which the Company can file a Chapter 11 plan and solicit
acceptances thereof through and including September 26, 2014 and
November 25, 2014, respectively.

BData related that Triad Guaranty previously said, "Exclusivity
serves several important purposes, embodying the policy that in
most circumstances, a debtor-in-possession is best suited to lead
the plan process, of course with the benefit of fulsome
participation by all case stakeholders. As set forth above, the
further 180-day extension of the Exclusive Periods is warranted
here because, among other things, an extension of the Exclusive
Periods will give the Debtor a reasonable opportunity to complete
the formulation and prosecution of a chapter 11 plan following the
adjudication of the Adversary Proceeding and Trading Motion.
Maintaining exclusivity for the extended period will benefit the
Debtor, its estate, and creditors and stakeholders as a whole. The
Debtor submits that its substantial progress in this case warrants
affording the Debtor a reasonable amount of additional time to
have exclusive plan filing and solicitation rights -- in effect to
finish out the administration of this case in the manner in which
chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code is designed. In sum, the
requested extension of the Exclusive Periods will benefit the
Debtor and its estate by providing the Debtor with a full and fair
opportunity to resolve the Adversary Proceeding and formulate and
seek approval of a chapter 11 plan consistent with such
resolution. It is in the best interests of the Debtor, its estate,
and all creditors and stakeholders to obtain an extension of the
Exclusive Periods to ensure that the Debtor is afforded a
reasonable and sufficient time to resolve the litigation regarding
its rights with respect to the tax attributes and solicit,
confirm, and consummate a plan without the costly and counter-
productive prospect of a competing plan. Accordingly, the Debtor
believes that the requested extension is warranted and, indeed,
appropriate under the circumstances."


TRIPLANET PARTNERS: Files for Chapter 11 in White Plains, NY
------------------------------------------------------------
Triplanet Partners LLC filed a Chapter 11 bankruptcy petition
(Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 14-22643) in White Plains, New York on
May 8, 2014.

Triplanet, also known as Convergence, operates an international
management consultancy to the financial services industry that
delivers expert solutions in business performance and
transformation across the finance, risk, treasury and technology
functions.

According to a court filing, the Debtor's financial condition was
precipitated by certain restraining notices which prevented the
Debtor from operating its business.

The purpose of filing the petition is to preserve the assets of
the Debtor for the benefit of creditors and to allow it to
restructure its obligations, while continuing to operate its
business in the ordinary course.

Salaries currently being paid by the Debtor to offices approximate
$167,000 per month.  Estimated income in the next 30 days is
expected to be $0 while total expenses are expected to total
$211,000.

The bankruptcy case is assigned to Judge Robert D. Drain.

The Westchester, New York-based company estimated $10 million to
$50 million in assets and debt.

The Debtor is represented by Arnold Mitchell Greene, Esq., at
Robinson Brog Leinwand Greene Genovese & Gluck, P.C., in New York.

According to the docket, the Debtor's schedules of assets and
liabilities are due May 22, 2014.  The Chapter 11 plan and
disclosure statement are due Sept. 5, 2014.

The meeting of creditors under 11 U.S.C. Sec. 341(a) is slated for
June 11, 2014.

----------------------------------------------------------------
A meeting of creditors in the bankruptcy case of Triplanet
Partners LLC will be held on June 11, 2014, at 2:00 p.m. at Room
243A, White Plains Courthouse.

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.

Triplanet Partners LLC filed a Chapter 11 bankruptcy petition
(Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 14-22643) on May 8, 2014.  Sophien

assets and debts of between $10 million to $50 million.  Arnold
Mitchell Greene, Esq., at Robinson Brog Leinwand Greene Genovese &

UNI-PIXEL INC: Incurs $6.2 Million Net Loss in First Quarter
------------------------------------------------------------
Uni-Pixel, Inc., filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange
Commission its quarterly report on Form 10-Q disclosing a net loss
of $6.18 million on $0 of revenue for the three months ended
March 31, 2014, as compared with net income of $947,415 on $5.06
million of revenue for the same period in 2013.

The Company's balance sheet at March 31, 2014, showed $49.38
million in total assets, $5.50 million in total liabilities and
$43.87 million in total shareholders' equity.

"During the first quarter, UniPixel made good progress toward
overcoming certain challenges necessary to complete the
manufacturing process for our flagship touch screen technology,
particularly as it relates to ink and printing," said Jeff
Hawthorne, recently appointed president and CEO of UniPixel.

"A significant focus of our development effort has now turned to
the critical process of plating the conductive materials on a
roll-to-roll basis," continued Hawthorne.  "Our lab-based single
sensor batch plating process that we have used for proof of
concept, sample units and low volume customer orders has been
robust and with relatively high yields. However, the roll-to-roll
plating process still requires modifications and adjustments to
hardware, geometry and chemistry in order to produce yields at our
target production levels.  To this end, we have teams pursuing
several parallel development paths to improve the roll-to-roll
plating process."

USEC INC: Delays Disclosure, Gets Final Loan Approval
-----------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reported that USEC Inc., a producer of enriched uranium for
nuclear power plants, has won bankruptcy court approval for
financing and an agreement committing principal parties to support
the reorganization plan worked out before the Chapter 11 filing on
March 5.

According to the Bloomberg report, the company also completed an
arrangement where the government's Oak Ridge National Laboratory
will pay USEC $34.1 million to maintain technology being developed
for a gas-centrifuge enrichment technology. So far, the government
has contributed 80 percent, or $280 million, while USEC
contributed the remaining 20 percent, the Bloomberg report said.

In addition to approving the plan-support agreement, the
bankruptcy judge granted final authorization for $50 million in
financing provided by a subsidiary, which was also the pre-
bankruptcy funding source, the Bloomberg related.

BankruptcyData reported on May 5 that USEC filed a motion for an
order (i) authorizing entry into an amended and restated debtor-
in-possession credit agreement and (ii) modifying the final order
authorizing the Debtor to (a) obtain post-petition secured
financing and (b) use cash collateral.

The motion, according to BData, explains, "the primary proposed
modifications to the Original DIP Credit Agreement that flowed
from those negotiations are limited to the following
(collectively, the 'Proposed Amendments'): Revisions to reflect
the transition from the ACP RD&D Program to the ORNL Agreement
. . .  The Maturity Date has been extended and will now be the
earlier of (x) the Plan Effective Date and (y) September 30, 2014
(which date may be extended by Enrichment Corp in its sole
discretion). The Original DIP Credit Agreement would previously
have matured on July 4, 2014 (120 days following the Petition
Date)." The motion continues, "Virtually all of the Proposed
Amendments have been occasioned by the recent developments with
respect to the termination of funding under and the expiration of
the RD&D Cooperative Agreement, the Debtor's entry into the ORNL
Agreement and the continuation of the Disclosure Statement
Hearing. Although the Debtor does not believe that the Proposed
Amendments are 'material and/or adverse' to the Debtor (as they
primarily address the replacement of one form of program (the ACP
RD&D Program) for another (the obligations under the ORNL
Agreement), which are similar in many respects, and the
corresponding replacement of the DOE with another DOE-affiliated
counterparty), out of an abundance of caution, the Debtor has
nevertheless sought the Court's approval of its entry into the
Amended DIP Credit Agreement. In the absence of authorization for
the Debtor to enter into the Amended DIP Credit Agreement,
Enrichment Corp could refuse to provide future funding to the
Debtor. The failure to obtain authorization to enter into the
Amended DIP Credit Agreement will, in very short order, leave the
Debtor without access to any postpetition funding (pursuant to the
ORNL Agreement), which will render the Debtor unable to cover all
of its costs of operations . . .  I]n the absence of the
financing, the Debtor would be unable to meet its ordinary course
operational obligations, much less bear the costs of the chapter
11 process, forcing the Debtor into an immediate liquidation, with
the attendant damage to employees, stakeholders and other parties
in interest. . . .  As explained in the DIP Motion, the Debtor
does not have material, tangible assets, does not generate any
revenue from operations and has never obtained any third-party
financing that was not premised on credit support from Enrichment
Corp. Thus, the loans from Enrichment Corp not only represent a
reasonable financing source on their face, they likely represent
the only financing source available to the Debtor. Accordingly,
the Debtor submits that the entry into the Amended DIP Credit
Agreement is a decision (as was the case with its decision to
enter into the Original DIP Credit Agreement) that represents the
exercise of the Debtor's reasonable business judgment."

VERTELLUS SPECIALTIES: S&P Revises Outlook & Affirms 'CCC+' CCR
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services revised its outlook on
U.S.based chemical maker Vertellus Specialties Inc. to developing
from stable.  At the same time, S&P affirmed its 'CCC+' corporate
credit rating on the company.

In addition, S&P affirmed the 'B' rating on the company's $100
million asset-based revolving credit facility maturing in March
2015.  The recovery rating remains '1', indicating S&P's
expectation for a very high (90% to 100%) recovery in the event of
payment default.  S&P also affirmed its 'CCC+' rating on the
company's $345 million senior secured notes due October 2015.  The
recovery rating remains '4', indicating S&P's expectation for
average (30% to 50%) recovery in the event of payment default.

"The developing outlook reflects our view that strengthening
demand and better pricing in the agriculture and nutrition segment
combined with recent operational improvements will allow the
company to continue to increase revenue and margins," said
Standard & Poor's credit analyst Pranay Sonalkar.  These improving
trends along with the increasing contribution from the new Weifang
JV should cause the company to generate sufficient cash to meet
its operating requirements over the next several months and could
facilitate the refinancing of its revolver and notes.  While S&P
believes the company has a higher likelihood of refinancing than
previously, it notes there are risks associated with the
refinancing if operating performance unexpectedly deteriorates or
market conditions worsen.

The ratings on Vertellus reflect the company's "highly leveraged"
financial risk profile and "weak" business risk profile.  The
ratings also reflect S&P's assessment of the company's liquidity
as "weak".

The developing outlook reflects S&P's expectation that although it
expects Vertellus to generate sufficient cash and maintain enough
liquidity to meet its operating needs over the next several
months, there are risks associated with the refinancing given the
short time frame to maturity and high debt levels.

S&P could raise the ratings by one notch if operating results
continue to strengthen and the company successfully completes a
refinancing of the ABL and unsecured notes, resulting in improved
liquidity and a better debt maturity profile.  S&P would expect
FFO to debt of around 8% and leverage under 6x after the
refinancing.

S&P could lower the ratings if operating performance were to
unexpectedly deteriorate, which it believes would make it
difficult to execute a refinancing.  This could happen if EBITDA
margins were to decline by 150 basis points.  S&P also could lower
the ratings if operating performance is as it projects, but the
company does not complete the refinancing of its ABL facility and
notes by September 2014.


WAFERGEN BIO-SYSTEMS: Incurs $2.5 Million Net Loss in Q1
--------------------------------------------------------
WaferGen Bio-systems, Inc., reported a net loss of $2.54 million
on $1.40 million of total revenue for the three months ended
March 31, 2014, as compared with a net loss of $3.78 million on
$178,487 of total revenue for the same period in 2013.

The Company's balance sheet at March 31, 2014, showed $11.75
million in total assets, $9.33 million in total liabilities and
$2.42 million in total stockholders' equity.

"We had a strong revenue performance in the first quarter across
our product lines with a diverse customer base.  The rapid
increase in adoption of our SmartChip platform was augmented by
sales of the newly acquired Apollo business," said Ivan
Trifunovich, president and CEO of WaferGen.  He added, "As
previously disclosed, on January 6, 2014, we acquired
substantially all of the assets of IntegenX's product line used in
library preparation for NGS, including the Apollo 324TM instrument
and PrepXTM reagents, which clearly put us in a strong competitive
position.  In fact, the first quarter revenue was almost 8% higher
than revenues for all of calendar year 2013, due to higher sales
of the Smart Chip products and revenues from the newly acquired
product lines.  Another important Q1 milestone was the launch of
the SeqReadyTM version of the SmartChip TETM product, which
drastically improves throughput and compresses the workflow in NGS
sample preparation.  This new product contributed to sales into
the clinical NGS market.  We are excited about our progress in the
first quarter and we look forward to continuing the momentum as we
further execute our growth strategy."

"Our indebtedness at December 31, 2013 was $16,958,374.  A portion
of such indebtedness reflects judicial judgments against us that
could result in liens being placed on our bank accounts or assets.
We are continuing to review our ability to reduce this debt level
due to the age and/or settlement of certain payables but we may
not be able to do so.  This level of indebtedness could, among
other things:

   * make it difficult for us to make payments on this debt and
     other obligations;

   * make it difficult for us to obtain future financing;

   * require us to redirect significant amounts of cash from
     operations to servicing the debt;

   * require us to take measures such as the reduction in scale of
     our operations that might hurt our future performance in
     order to satisfy our debt obligations; and

   * make us more vulnerable to bankruptcy or an unwanted
     acquisition on terms unsatisfactory to us," the Company said
     in the Annual Report for the year ended Dec. 31, 2013.


ZALE CORP: Investors Say Signet Merger Consideration Inadequate
---------------------------------------------------------------
TIG Arbitrage Associates Master Fund, L.P., TIG Arbitrage Enhanced
Master Fund, L.P., TFI Partners, LLC, TIG Advisors, LLC, Carl
Tiedemann, and Michael Tiedemann disclosed in a proxy statement
filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission that they
intend to form a group for the purpose of opposing the proposed
merger by and among Zale Corporation, Signet Jewelers Limited, and
Carat Merger Sub, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Signet, to be
voted on at the special meeting of stockholders scheduled to be
held on Thursday, May 29, 2014.

As reported by the TCR on March 7, 2014, Signet Jewelers Limited
and Zale Corporation have entered into a definitive agreement for
Signet to acquire all of the issued and outstanding stock of Zale
for $21.00 per share in cash consideration.

"We believe that shares of Zale at the time of the announced
transaction were significantly undervalued by the market.  Under
the stewardship of the current Management team, Zale had
significantly turned around its operations over the past several
years and set a course for the Company to achieve near double-
digit EBITDA margins in F2016," the Investors said.

The Investors also maintain significant issues of process and
potential conflicts of interest seriously taint the sale process
and raise doubts as to whether or not the Signet deal is the best
outcome for holders.

In the event that shareholders approve the acquisition, the
Investors plan to pursue an appraisal claim against Signet to
compel additional consideration for the Investors' interest.

As of May 9, 2014, the Investors beneficially owned 4,104,775
shares of common stock of Zale Corporation representing 9.5
percent of the shares outstanding, as disclosed in a regulatory
filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.  A copy

* BofA, NYSE, Brokerages Sued over High-Frequency Trading
---------------------------------------------------------
City of Providence, Rhode Island v. BATS Global Markets Inc, et
al, No. 14-2811 (S.D.N.Y.), is a securities class action brought
on behalf of public investors who purchased and/or sold shares of
sotck in the United States between April 18, 2009, and the
present on a registered public stock exchange or a United States-
based alternate trading venue, and were injured as a result of
the misconduct.  The case arises out of a scheme and wrongful
course of business whereby the Exchange Defendants together with
a defendant class of the brokerage firms entrusted to fairly and
honestly transact the purchase and sale of securities on behalf
of their clients and a defendant class of sophisticated high
frequency trading firms employed devices, contrivances,
manipulations and artifices to defraud in a manner that was
designed to and did manipulate the U.S. Securities markets and
the trading of equities in those markets, diverting billions of
dollars annually from buyers and sellers of securities to
themselves.

Reuters reports that the lawsuit was filed in Manhattan federal
district court, as the high-speed trading industry came under
greater scrutiny following the publication last month of author
Michael Lewis' book "Flash Boys: A Wall Street Revolt."  A number
of regulators have said they are probing the industry, including
the Justice Department, Securities and Exchange Commission and
Commodities Futures Exchange Commission.

The lawsuit demands jury trial.

The complaint identified 14 financial services firms, which,
according to the lawsuit, were the largest brokerage firms
serving institutional and retail investors in the U.S. during the
class period.

Bob Van Voris, writing for Bloomberg News, citing a person
familiar with the matter, reported that one defendant, Virtu
Financial Inc., a high-frequency trader that delayed its initial
public offering, has received inquiries from the office of New
York's attorney general, Eric Schneiderman.  Schneiderman
announced in March that he's investigating high-frequency traders.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation has said it's looking into
whether firms that engage in high-speed trades get an improper
jump on other investors by using information about their trading
to make profits, the Bloomberg report related.  Providence is
seeking unspecified damages on behalf of all public investors that
bought or sold stock in the last five years, according to the
complaint filed in federal court in Manhattan, the Bloomberg
report further related.


* CFPB Zeroes In On Student Loan 'Auto Default' Complaints
----------------------------------------------------------
Law360 reported that the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau
released a consumer and industry advisory on the issue of "auto
defaults" for a private student loan that are triggered by the
death or bankruptcy of a co-signer, saying the bureau has received
a growing number of borrower complaints on the issue.

According to the report, in its semiannual update on student loan
complaints, the agency said it received more than 2,300 complaints
about private student loans between October and March -- a 39
percent uptick in complaints since its previous report -- and it
received more than 1,300 complaints related to debt collection for
these loans.

Sallie Mae -- the student loan giant that services both federal
and private loans -- made up more than half of these complaints,
with the rest split between student loan specialists like ACS
Education Services and other lenders such as JPMorgan Chase & Co.,
Citibank NA and Wells Fargo & Co., the report related.

A key issue discussed in the report was the rising prevalence of
complaints related to auto-default, where a clause in the contract
of many private student loans -- the clause is not included in
federal student loans, the CFPB said -- allows servicers to either
demand the full balance of the loan when a loan co-signer dies or
files for bankruptcy, or send the loan straight into default, the
report further related.

This often happens automatically, based on electronic scans of
probate and other public records, even when the loan is in good
standing, the report said.  It has the potential to hurt a
significant number of borrowers, with about 90 percent of private
student loans co-signed in 2011, up from 67 percent in 2008,
according to the agency.


* Education Dept. Proposes New PLUS Loan Standards
--------------------------------------------------
Inside Higher Ed reported that the U.S. Department of Education is
proposing new eligibility requirements for Parent PLUS loans.
According to the report, under draft regulatory language sent to
members of the department's negotiated rule making panel, parents
would generally be barred from taking out PLUS loans if they have
any type of debt exceeding $2,085 that is 90 or more days
delinquent or that has been sent to a collection agency or charged
off. The proposal also changes the look-back period for that
"adverse credit" history from five years to two years.

Under a separate policy change that goes into effect July 1,
families that are denied a Parent PLUS loan because of an adverse
credit history may appeal to the Education Department, which can
then provide the loan if there are "extenuating circumstances,"
the report related.

The department's standards for obtaining a PLUS have been a source
of controversy since at least 2011, when officials quietly
tightened the requirements, the report further related.  Leaders
of historically black colleges and universities and for-profit
colleges -- which enroll large numbers of students who rely on
PLUS loans -- have said the changes were denying underserved
students access to the loans they need to pay for college.

Presidents of black colleges, in particular, have pushed the Obama
administration to make it easier for families to access the loans,
the report added.  Some consumer advocates and think tanks, on the
other hand, argue that the department should keep its credit
standards -- or even tighten them further -- so that parents
aren't saddled with large amounts of debt that they cannot
possibly repay.


* Mortgage Lenders Ease Rules for Home Buyers in Hunt for Business
------------------------------------------------------------------
Nick Timiraos and Annamaria Andriotis, writing for The Wall Street
Journal, reported that mortgage lenders are beginning to ease the
restrictive lending standards enacted after the housing boom
turned to bust, a sign of their rising confidence in the housing
market.  While standards remain tight by historical measures,
lenders have started to accept lower credit scores and to reduce
down-payment requirements, the Journal related.

TD Bank, Toronto-Dominion Bank's U.S. unit, which began accepting
down payments as low as 3% through an initiative called "Right
Step," geared toward first-time buyers and low- and moderate-
income buyers, the report further related.  TD initially launched
the program last year with a 5% down payment. It keeps the product
on its books and doesn't charge for insurance. Borrowers also
don't need to put down any of their own cash if a family, state or
nonprofit group provides a down-payment gift.

The changes also are a recognition by lenders that the business of
refinancing old mortgages, which had been a huge profit center for
banks, is nearly tapped out, the report said.  To generate future
profits, banks will have to compete for borrowers who may not have
perfect credit or large down payments.

                             *********

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

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

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

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 the nation's bankruptcy courts.  The
list includes links to freely downloadable of these small-dollar
petitions in Acrobat PDF documents.

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.
