1250 OCEANSIDE: Third Amended Joint Plan Confirmed
--------------------------------------------------
U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Robert J. Faris has confirmed the Third
Amended Joint Plan of Reorganization filed by 1250 Oceanside
Partners and its affiliates dated Nov. 22, 2013.

The order is subject to these plan amendments:

   a. Sections 1.104 and 5.9 of the Plan are amended to increase
      the UCF from $750,000 to $1,550,000.

   b. Sections 3.9.2(B), (C), and (D) are deleted, as moot.

   c. Sections 5.9 and 8.2 are amended to permit any Class 9, 10,
      or 11 creditor to object to the claim of any other 9, 10, or
      11 creditor, provided that any such objection is filed
      within 60 days of the Effective Date.

                        Third Amended Plan

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Dec. 16, 2013, the
Third Amended Plan was filed in light of a lawsuit filed by
William Batiste in October 2013

On Oct. 10, 2013, William Batiste and certain other lot owners
commenced an adversary proceeding entitled William Batiste, et
al., vs. Sun Kona Finance I, LLC, Adv. Proc. No. 13-90068, in the
Bankruptcy Court.  The suit alleges that Bank of Scotland, SKFI
(which acquired the Bank of Scotland loan), and other entities
engaged in negligent and willful and wrongful acts that caused
harm to lot owners.  SKFI does not believe that the claims
asserted against SKFI have any merit and intend to vigorously
oppose the claims in the lawsuit.

To prevent a delay in confirmation due to the litigation, the plan
proponents say the Third Amended Plan provides for the appropriate
treatment of the Class 9 Allowed Oceanside General Unsecured
Claims in the event that the Court in the future enters a judgment
determining that the SKFI claim should be subordinated in whole or
in part (Count I of the Batiste Action), or that the SKFI claim
should be reclassified as equity in whole or in part (Count II of
the Batiste Action).  The plan proponents intend to request that
the issues raised by Count III (which seeks to disallow SKFI's
claims due to SKFI's failure to adequately support its claims and
on other grounds) be resolved by the Court as part of the
confirmation process, without prejudice to the Court's resolution
of Counts I and II at a later date.

The amendments, according to the plan proponents, should allow the
confirmation of the Plan in a timely manner, the payment of other
allowed claims, and the continued development of the Hokuli'a
Project in the best interest of all parties.

The Plan provides that the additional capital necessary to emerge
from Chapter 11 will be provided by the exit loan from SKFI which
will provide the Debtors with a line of credit of up to
$65,000,000.  Based on the Debtors' projections, the exit loan
will allow the Debtor to pay its outstanding administrative claims
and cure claims upon emergence, pay all other restructured debts
as they become due, and will provide adequate working capital for
the Debtors going forward.  Because resolution of the Batiste
Action may impact the treatment of Class 9 claims, it is
anticipated that no distributions will be made on Class 9 Claims
until the Batiste Action is resolved.

                   About 1250 Oceanside Partners

1250 Oceanside Partners, Front Nine, LLC, and Pacific Star
Company, LLC, owners of the 1,800-acre Hokuli'a luxury real
estate development near Kona on the island of Hawaii, sought
Chapter 11 protection (Bankr. D. Hawaii Lead Case No. 13-00353)
on March 6, 2013, in Honolulu.

The Debtors were formed by developer Lyle Anderson and were
part of his development "empire", which included developments
in Hawaii, Arizona, New Mexico and Scotland.  The secured
lender, Bank of Scotland, declared a default and obtained
control of the Debtors in January 2008.

Development of the property, which has 3.5 miles of waterfront
on the Kona coast, stopped after the developers were declared
in default under the loan.  Oceanside and Front Nine own most
of the land within the Hokuli'a project, which is the principal
development.  Pacific Star owns the land referred to as
"Keopuka", near Hokuli'a.  The Hokuli'a was to have 730
residential units, an 18-hole golf course, club and other
amenities.

The Debtors say their assets are worth $68.1 million while they
are jointly liable to $625 million of debt to Sun Kona Finance
LLC, which acquired the Hawaii loan from Bank of Scotland.

Simon Klevansky, Esq., Alika L. Piper, Esq., and Nicole D.
Stucki, Esq., at Klevansky Piper, LLP, represent the Debtor in
its restructuring effort.  They replaced the law firm of Gelber,
Gelber & Ingersoll as general counsel.

A creditors committee has not been appointed.

James A. Wagner, Esq., and Allison A. Ito, Esq., at Wagner Choi &
Verbrugge, represent creditor Sun Kona Finance I, LLC, as counsel.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports that U.S. Bankruptcy Judge
Robert Faris on May 12 confirmed the bankruptcy-exit plan by 1250
Oceanside Partners and two affiliates.

1250 Oceanside Partners on May 12, 2014 won court approval of a
reorganization plan that would turn over ownership to its secured
lender.  Sun Kona would provide a $65 million exit facility to
help make payments under the plan and to fund the reorganized
company when it leaves court protection.


ACCESS MIDSTREAM: Moody's Places Ba1 CFR on Review for Upgrade
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service affirmed The Williams Companies, Inc.'s
(Williams) Baa3 senior unsecured ratings, Williams Partners, LP's
(WPZ) Baa2 senior unsecured ratings and the Baa1 ratings of WPZ's
wholly owned pipeline subsidiaries, Northwest Pipeline (Northwest)
and Transcontinental Gas Pipeline Company (Transco). Moody's
placed on review for upgrade Access Midstream Partners, L.P.'s
(ACMP) Ba1 Corporate Family Rating (CFR) and Ba2 senior notes
ratings. The rating outlook for Williams, WPZ and its pipeline
subsidiaries remains stable.

These rating actions follow Williams' announcement that it has
agreed to purchase the remaining 50% interest in ACMP's general
partner (GP) and 55.1 million limited partner (LP) units in ACMP
from Global Infrastructure Partners (GIP, unrated) for $5.995
billion. The company has also proposed a merger of WPZ and ACMP to
be completed later in 2014.

"Williams' Baa3 ratings were affirmed because Moody's expect the
company's consolidated and parent company only financial leverage
to decline from presently high levels over the remainder of 2014
and 2015 through earnings growth from capital projects coming
online," said Pete Speer, Moody's Senior Vice-President. "The
sound strategic fit of the acquisition also supported Williams
Baa3 ratings."

"The merger of Williams Partners and Access Midstream supports
WPZ's Baa2 ratings by improving its business risk profile and
distribution coverage and lowering its currently high financial
leverage," continued Speer. "Access Midstream's creditors benefit
from the combined partnership's increased scale and broader
business line and customer diversification."

Ratings Rationale

Williams' Baa3 senior unsecured rating is supported by its control
of WPZ and ACMP and access to most of the cash flows generated by
those partnerships' high quality pipeline and midstream assets.
Williams initial pro forma consolidated debt/EBITDA following the
acquisition from GIP would be about 6x, and parent only
debt/EBITDA would approach 2.5x, both well above levels consistent
with the company's Baa3 ratings. However, Moody's expects leverage
to trend down over the remainder of 2014 and 2015 to less than 5x
and 2x, respectively, as the many growth projects in progress at
WPZ and ACMP are completed and drive earnings growth.

Williams plans to fund the acquisition of GIP's ownership
interests in ACMP approximately half with equity and the remainder
with a combination of long-term debt, revolver borrowings and cash
on hand. This transaction increases Williams' financial leverage,
despite the substantial equity funding, because of the very high
multiple being paid relative to incremental distributions and
EBITDA. Following the transaction, Williams will fully control
ACMP through 100% ownership of the GP, and it will own about 50%
of ACMP's LP interests. This is beneficial to Williams' overall
consolidated business risk profile because of ACMP's fee-based
revenues and significant contractual mitigation of volume risk.

ACMP has gathering assets and processing facilities that are
complimentary to WPZ's assets in the rapidly growing Marcellus and
Utica shale while also providing exposure to other basins. The
partnership has visible growth projects, strong operational
execution and declining financial leverage. Williams existing
knowledge of ACMP reduces some of the inherent performance risk of
this acquisition and the strategic asset alignment counterbalances
some of the near term concerns regarding Williams' financial
leverage and the acquisition's valuation.

WPZ's Baa2 senior unsecured rating reflects its large asset base
and the stability of its regulated interstate pipeline operations,
tempered by the significant amount of commodity price and volume
risk in its midstream operations. The proposed merger of WPZ with
ACMP, if completed, would result in a larger entity with a lower
business risk profile. ACMP's customer concentration risk with
Chesapeake Energy (Ba1 stable) is significantly diluted given its
combination with WPZ's larger and more diversified customer base.
The proposed merger also significantly improves WPZ's leverage
metrics and distribution coverage, which are presently weak for
its Baa2 ratings. The simplification of the organizational
structure and enhanced operational synergies between WPZ and ACMP
are credit positive to the overall consolidated credit profile of
Williams, but those benefits accrue directly to the merged
WPZ/ACMP. Substantially all of the incremental debt from the two
transactions will be issued by Williams, limiting the leveraging
effect of the transactions to the parent company.

The closing of the acquisition of GIP's ownership interests in
ACMP is subject only to the receipt of regulatory approvals under
provisions of the Hart-Scott-Rodino Act. It is not contingent on
the proposed merger of WPZ and ACMP. The proposed terms of the
merger between WPZ and ACMP will be subject to negotiation, review
and approval by conflicts committees of each partnership's board
of directors. Williams also expects the proposed merger to be
subject to approval by WPZ's unitholders.

The merger of WPZ and ACMP has been proposed by Williams as an
exchange of new ACMP LP units for all outstanding WPZ LP units
with a small cash component to WPZ unitholders. The outstanding
debt of WPZ is expected to be assumed by ACMP, resulting in the
combined entity's debt being pari passu. Moody's ratings review
for ACMP will focus on the final terms of the transaction and
outlook for the combined entities financial performance. The
review for upgrade of ACMP's ratings and the affirmation of WPZ's
Baa2 ratings reflects Moody's view that the combined entity is
likely to be rated Baa2 following the merger based on the proposed
terms.

The stable outlook for Williams presumes successful execution of
its long term funding plans for the acquisition of ACMP. The
stable outlook for Williams and also WPZ is based on Moody's
expectation that both entities consolidated financial leverage
metrics will decline over the remainder of 2014 and 2015 as new
growth projects commence operations and increase cash flows. This
should also drive improving parent company only leverage at
Williams. If the execution on growth projects does not meet
expectations then the ratings could be pressured. Debt/EBITDA at
WPZ sustained above 4.5x could result in a ratings downgrade. If
Williams' consolidated debt/EBITDA and parent company only
debt/EBITDA does not decline as expected to under 5x and 2x,
respectively, then its ratings could be downgraded.

ADVANCED MICRO: Appoints Lisa Su as SVP and COO
-----------------------------------------------
AMD announced the latest step in the Company's multi-year
strategic transformation to deliver consistent growth and
profitability by combining the Company's previously separate
business units, global operations and sales organizations to
create a singular, market-focused organization responsible for all
aspects of product strategy, product execution, sales and
operations.  The new structure will be implemented on July 1 and
will be led by Dr. Lisa Su (44) in her new role as AMD's chief
operating officer (COO), reporting to AMD President and Chief
Executive Officer Rory Read (52).

As a part of the re-alignment, AMD also announced it will
consolidate its business units into two expanded business groups
designed to deliver unmatched customer value in both traditional
PC markets and adjacent high-growth markets:

   * The Computing and Graphics Business Group will combine AMD's
     client, consumer graphics and professional graphics
     businesses, as well as their related product engineering and
     sales functions.  AMD Chief Sales Officer John Byrne (43) has
     been appointed senior vice president and general manager
     responsible for leading the Computing and Graphics Business
     Group, reporting to Dr. Su.

   * The Enterprise, Embedded and Semi-Custom Business Group will
     combine AMD's server, embedded, dense server and semi-custom
     businesses, as well as their related product engineering and
     sales functions. Dr. Su will be the acting lead.

"During the past two years, we have been successfully executing
our three-step strategy to reset, accelerate and ultimately
transform AMD," said Read.  "Today's announcement represents the
next step in our long-term strategic plan to help ensure AMD's
operating structure and culture are better aligned to drive
consistent growth and profitability by leveraging our leadership
IP to create differentiated products that help our customers win
across a diversified set of high-growth markets.

"Lisa has been a driving force in AMD's recent success, and as COO
she will expand on this foundation and lead a broader organization
designed to more quickly adapt to industry shifts, streamline
execution and decision making, and create even greater value for
our customers.  John's years of PC industry experience and
successful track record of strengthening AMD's customer
relationships make him ideally suited to take on additional
responsibility and lead one of our new business groups."

Dr. Su joined AMD in 2012 as senior vice president and general
manager, Global Business Units, responsible for the company's
product strategy, product definition and business plans.  She
joined AMD from Freescale, where she held multiple positions
including chief technology officer and senior vice present and
general manager, Networking and Multimedia.  Prior to Freescale,
Dr. Su spent 13 years with IBM in various engineering and business
leadership positions.

During Byrne's seven years at AMD he has held several senior
management roles, including responsibility for global sales teams,
leading the consolidation of the company's computing and graphics
processor worldwide channel sales teams and strengthening
relationships with the company's largest global customers.  He has
more than 25 years of experience in the technology industry,
including founding two successful technology sales and marketing
businesses.

On June 9, 2014, the Compensation Committee of the Board of
Directors of the Company approved base salary increases for Mr.
Devinder Kumar, the Company's senior vice president and chief
financial officer, Mr. John Byrne, and Dr. Lisa T. Su. Messrs.
Kumar and Byrne and Dr. Su are each a named executive officer.
These base salary increases will be effective July 1, 2014.  The
current base salaries of Messrs. Kumar and Byrne and Dr. Su, and
the base salaries to be received by Messrs. Kumar and Byrne and
Dr. Su beginning July 1, 2014, are:

                               Current        Base Salary

                   About Advanced Micro Devices

Sunnyvale, California-based Advanced Micro Devices, Inc., is a
global semiconductor company.  The Company's products include x86
microprocessors and graphics.

Advanced Micro incurred a net loss of $83 million on $5.29 billion
of net revenue for the year ended Dec. 28, 2013, as compared with
a net loss of $1.18 billion on $5.42 billion of net revenue for
the year ended Dec. 29, 2012.  The Company's balance sheet at
Dec. 28, 2013, showed $4.33 billion in total assets, $3.79 billion
in total liabilities and $544 million in total stockholders'
equity.

                          *     *     *

In August 2013, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services revised its
outlook on Advanced Micro to negative from stable.  At the same
time, S&P affirmed its 'B' corporate credit and senior unsecured
debt ratings on AMD.

As reported by the TCR on June 5, 2014, Fitch Ratings has upgraded
the long-term Issuer Default Rating (IDR) for Advanced Micro
Devices Inc. (NYSE: AMD) to 'B-' from 'CCC'.  The upgrade
primarily reflects AMD's improved financial flexibility from
recent refinancing activity, which extends meaningful debt
maturities until 2019.

In the Feb. 4, 2013, edition of the TCR, Moody's Investors Service
lowered Advanced Micro Devices' corporate family rating to B2 from
B1.  The downgrade of the corporate family rating to B2 reflects
AMD's prospects for weaker operating performance and liquidity
profile over the next year as the company commences on a multi-
quarter strategic reorientation of its business in the face of a
challenging macro environment and a weak PC market.


ALLEGIANT TRAVEL: S&P Gives BB- CCR & Rates Unsecured Notes BB-
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its 'BB-' corporate
credit rating to Las Vegas, Nevada-based Allegiant Travel Co.  S&P
also assigned its 'BB-' issue-level and '4' rating recovery rating
to Allegiant's senior unsecured notes.  The '4' recovery rating
indicates S&P's expectation that lenders would receive average
recovery (30%-50%) in the event of a payment default.

S&P's corporate credit rating on Allegiant reflects the company's
relatively small market share within the U.S. airline industry,
with a focus on carrying leisure travelers from midsize cities to
vacation destinations; the airline industry's high risk and
cyclical nature; and the company's low operating cost structure.
The rating also incorporates the company's financial profile,
which, even with an increase in debt to acquire aircraft, will
remain among the better of the rated U.S. airlines.  Pro forma for
the notes' issuance, S&P expects funds from operations (FFO) to
debt to decline to the mid-20% area from 47% in 2013 and debt to
EBITDA to increase to the mid-2x area from 1.5x in 2013.

Allegiant is a low-cost, low-fare airline that serves primarily
leisure travelers to vacation destinations from small and midsize
cities.  As of June 1, 2014, the company served 231 routes between
85 small cities and 13 leisure destinations, including Las Vegas
and Phoenix as well as destinations in Florida, California, and
Hawaii.

Allegiant's margins benefit from its low-cost structure as well as
from a higher level of ancillary revenues than other rated U.S.
airlines (about 33% of revenues in 2013).  These revenues are
related to fees charged for checked bags, assigned seats, on-board
sales, etc.  The company's operating cost per available seat mile
of about 10 cents is among the lowest in the industry, which
average more than 13 cents.  The company's low costs result from
its use of less-expensive older aircraft, its relatively low labor
costs, and its high seat density.  Some employee groups have voted
recently to join unions, which could raise labor costs over time,
but it will probably take several years to reach initial
contracts, based on precedent cases for U.S. airlines.  In 2013,
the company began to acquire more fuel efficient Airbus A319 and
A320 aircraft from other airlines (the planes are about 10 years
old), which added a third type of aircraft to its fleet (older
McDonnell Douglas MD-80 and Boeing B757 aircraft).

"The stable outlook is based on our expectation that Allegiant's
financial risk profile will remain relatively consistent through
2015, though greater-than-expected shareholder rewards could
increase leverage above our expectations," said Standard & Poor's
credit analyst Betsy Snyder.

S&P could lower the rating if the company's earnings and cash flow
are weaker than it expects due to higher-than-expected fuel prices
or weak demand and pricing, or if there are greater-than-expected
shareholder rewards, resulting in FFO to debt declining to below
20% on a sustained basis.

S&P believes an upgrade is unlikely over the next year, based on
the company's limited market position and narrow business model,
which it don't expect to change significantly.  Still, over the
longer term, S&P could raise the rating if it reassess Allegiant's
business risk profile as "fair," and the company is able to
maintain FFO to debt of at least 25%.


ALTEGRITY INC: Moody's Affirms 'Caa2' Corporate Family Rating
-------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service affirmed Altegrity, Inc.'s Caa2
corporate family rating (CFR) and revised its probability of
default rating (PDR) to Caa2-PD, from Ca-PD. Moody's assigned a B3
rating to the company's proposed senior secured credit facilities
and senior secured notes being offered in connection with the
company's recapitalization plan. Moody's also assigned a Caa3
rating to the new senior second lien notes, and a Ca rating to the
new senior third lien notes being issued as part of the company's
debt exchange offer. The rating for the existing senior unsecured
stub notes that did not participate in the debt exchange offer was
downgraded to Ca.

Ratings Rationale

Moody's affirmed Altegrity's Caa2 CFR consistent with its
previously indicated assessment of Altegrity's recapitalization
plan and debt exchange offer. The affirmation reflects Altegrity's
improved operational flexibility over the intermediate term to
execute its turnaround plan. Approximately 92% of the aggregate
principal amount of the existing notes were validly tendered and
the debt maturities of the exchanged notes was extended to 2019 or
later. However, Altegrity's total outstanding debt and annual cash
interest payments will increase modestly after the completion of
the recapitalization.

The Caa2 CFR reflects Altegrity's 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 essentially
unchanged at about 9.0x. In addition, Moody's views Altegrity's
liquidity as "weak" given the likelihood of negative free cash
flow over the next 12 to 18 months and approximately $28 million
of scheduled debt maturities through December 2015. Although
Moody's expects Altegrity's cash generation, excluding expenses
and fees related to recapitalization, to improve from cost savings
and improving revenue trends in the Kroll and USIS business
segments, it is unlikely that leverage will decline to sustainable
levels without debt reduction or equity infusion.

Altegrity's credit profile is supported by its leading brands in
the investigative, compliance and response services (Kroll
Advisory Solutions), large scale e-discovery solutions (Kroll
Ontrack) and pre-employment screening services (HireRight). The
company is also a leading supplier of background investigation
services to the U.S. government and its agencies.

The stable ratings outlook reflects Altegrity's adequate cash
balances and Moody's expectations of moderating year-over-year
declines in EBITDA. In addition, the extension of debt maturities
will allow management to focus on generating revenue growth.

Moody's could downgrade Altegrity's corporate family rating if
liquidity deteriorates or earnings declines do not moderate.
Conversely, the ratings could be raised if the company's liquidity
strengthens and improving earnings lead to a meaningful
improvement in credit metrics.

Moody's has taken the following ratings actions:

Issuer -- Altegrity, Inc.

Affirmations:

Corporate Family Rating - Caa2

Existing 11.75% senior sub notes due May 2016 -- Ca (LGD6, 94%,

Default for Speculative-Grade Non-Financial Companies in the U.S.,
Canada and EMEA published in June 2009.

Altegrity provides background investigations for the U.S.
government; employment background and mortgage screening for
commercial customers; technology-driven legal services and
software for data management; and investigative, analytic,
consulting, due diligence, and security services. Altegrity is
principally owned by investment funds affiliated with Providence
Equity Partners. Annual revenues are approximately $1.4 billion.


ALLEGIANT TRAVEL: Moody's Rates $300MM Sr. Unsecured Notes 'B1'
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service affirmed the Ba3 Corporate Family and
Ba3-PD Probability of Default ratings assigned to Allegiant Travel
Company ("Allegiant"). Moody's also assigned a B1 rating (77-LGD5)
to the company's planned new $300 million of senior unsecured
notes due 2019 and affirmed the SGL-2 Speculative Grade Liquidity
rating. The outlook is stable. Moody's withdrew the Ba3 rating on
the $125 million term loan facility as that facility has been
repaid.

The company plans to use the proceeds of the new notes for general
corporate purposes. This will include funding purchases of Airbus
narrow-body aircraft and, Moody's believe, share repurchases or
dividends.

Ratings Rationale

The Ba3 Corporate Family rating anticipates that Allegiant will
sustain the profitability of its differentiated scheduled airline
model as it grows its network and diversifies its fleet with
Airbus narrow-body aircraft. Allegiant has an established business
model of providing mainline aircraft service between small cities
and certain leisure destinations with limited direct competition.
This provides the foundation for Allegiant to achieve relatively
favorable profit margins for an airline and historically, positive
free cash flow generation. Credit metrics at levels typically
found at investment grade-rated issuers and good liquidity provide
a large cushion for absorbing any potential adverse effects should
financial and or operating risks associated with the company's
growth strategy materialize. The Ba3 rating also considers that
Allegiant will continue to return cash to shareholders via
repurchases and special dividends, but not in exchange for a
weaker liquidity profile such as unrestricted cash falling below
$200 million. However, the rating also considers Moody's
expectation that the company will temper returns to shareholders
in periods when free cash flow is negative because of purchases of
a significant number of Airbus narrow-bodies.

The combination of the new $300 million of unsecured notes and
almost $200 million of incremental amortizing term loans secured
by the majority of the company's owned assets will significantly
increase funded debt. However, Moody's expect credit metrics to
remain aligned with levels found at lower investment grade-rated
companies.

The SGL-2 Speculative Grade Liquidity rating reflects good
liquidity. Moody's expects unrestricted cash to remain above $300
million and negative free cash flow in 2014 followed by modest
positive free cash flow in 2015 because of the timing of the
planned acquisitions of 22 Airbus narrow-body aircraft during the
next 18 months. Twelve of the acquired aircraft come with attached
operating leases, the payments thereon which will contribute
meaningfully to EBITDA and operating cash flow, helping to offset
upwards pressure on Debt to EBITDA.

The stable outlook reflects our belief that the resiliency of the
company's business model will allow it to maintain its credit
profile as it grows the fleet with Airbus narrow-body aircraft.
The ratings could be upgraded if Allegiant sustains its current
credit metrics and liquidity profiles while executing its current
fleet plan. Sustaining Funds from operations + Interest to
Interest above 7.0 times, Debt to EBITDA below 2.0 times and
operating margin above 15% while adding the Airbus narrowbodies to
the fleet would demonstrate support for a higher rating. The
ratings could be downgraded if execution of the company's growth
plan and or the operation of the Airbus aircraft on traditional
routes lead to meaningfully weaker credit metrics, such as Funds
from Operations + Interest to Interest of below 4.5 times or Debt
to EBITDA of above 3.0 times. Larger returns to shareholders that
are debt-funded and help sustain Debt to EBITDA above 3.0 times or
cause unrestricted cash to be sustained below $200 million for
more than one quarter could also pressure the ratings.

The principal methodology used in this rating was the Global
Passenger Airlines published in May 2012. Other methodologies used
include Loss Given Default for Speculative-Grade Non-Financial
Companies in the U.S., Canada and EMEA published in June 2009.

Allegiant Travel Company, headquartered in Las Vegas, Nevada,
operates a low-cost passenger airline marketed to leisure
travelers in small cities, selling air travel, hotel rooms, rental
cars and other travel related services on a stand-alone or bundled
basis.

                           *     *     *

As reported by the TCR on Dec. 16, 2013, Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services said it raised its issuer credit rating on Ally Financial
Inc. to 'BB' from 'B+'.  "The upgrade reflects the company's
release from potential legal and financial liabilities stemming
from its ownership of ResCap," said Standard & Poor's credit
analyst Tom Connell.

In the April 3, 2014, edition of the TCR, Fitch Ratings has
upgraded Ally Financial Inc.'s long-term Issuer Default Rating
(IDR) and senior unsecured debt rating to 'BB+' from 'BB'.
The rating upgrade reflects increased clarity around Ally's
ownership structure given Ally's recent announcement that it has
launched an initial public offering those shares of its common
stock held by the U.S. Treasury (the Treasury).

As reported by the TCR on Dec. 23, 2013, Moody's Investors Service
upgraded the corporate family rating (CFR) of Ally Financial Inc.
to Ba3 from B1.  The upgrade of Ally's corporate family rating
follows the U.S. Bankruptcy Court's approval of ResCap LLC's
(unrated) Chapter 11 plan, which releases Ally from mortgage-
related creditor claims originating from its ownership of ResCap.


ALION SCIENCE: Further Extends Tender Offer Expiration Date
-----------------------------------------------------------
Alion Science and Technology Corporation updated the results of

transactions are part of the previously announced transaction in
which the Company is seeking to refinance its existing
indebtedness.

As of 5:00 p.m. on June 11, 2014, according to Global Bondholder
Services Corporation, the Information and Exchange Agent,
approximately $212,676,000, or 90.50%, of the aggregate principal

aggregate purchase price of approximately $53,400.  The election
to purchase units in the unit offering cannot be revoked, except
as required by law.

For each $1,000 principal amount of Unsecured Notes accepted for

                        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 March 31, 2014, the Company had $610.99 million in total
assets, $816.34 million in total liabilities, $61.03 million in
redeemable common stock, $20.78 million in common stock warrants,
$130,000 in accumulated other comprehensive loss and a $287.29
million accumulated deficit.

                         Bankruptcy Warning

"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 Wells Fargo
Agreement, 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 Wells Fargo 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 the Quarterly Report for the period ended
March 31, 2014.

                           *     *     *

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.

In the May 23, 2014, edition of the TCR, Moody's Investors Service
affirmed, among other things, Alion Science & Technology
Corporation's ratings including the Caa2 Corporate Family Rating.
The affirmation of Alion's Caa2 corporate family rating reflects
the company's continued high leverage and weak interest coverage
metrics that are not anticipated to improve meaningfully in the
near-term, Moody's said.


ALTISOURCE PORTFOLIO: S&P Keeps B+ Rating After $200MM Debt Add-On
------------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said its 'B+' term loan rating
on Altisource Portfolio Solutions' $400 million term loan due in
2020 remains unchanged after a $200 million add-on offering.  The
long-term issuer credit rating on Altisource remains 'B+'.

Management will use the proceeds to repurchase stock and for
general corporate purposes.  Following this transaction, S&P
estimates debt to EBITDA to be approximately 2.6x as of March 31,
2014. We expect leverage to steadily decline over the next 12
months.

S&P's rating on Altisource reflects the company's strong, high-
quality earnings, strategy of operating with minimal balance sheet
risk, and solid funding base.  Offsetting factors include a
concentration in serving the cyclical mortgage industry and
customer concentration with respect to the firm's former parent,
Ocwen Financial Corp. Inc.

The stable outlook reflects the firm's strong core financial
performance and cash flow coverage.  S&P will monitor management's
initiatives to diversify products and customers.  An upgrade is
unlikely over the next two years because of operational risks
posed by the firm's continued growth across multiple regions and
multiple products.  S&P could downgrade the company if large
acquisitions or depressed economic conditions weaken its financial
profile, degrading its leverage and debt service metrics.

Moderate leverage supports the rating.  Over the longer term,
however, S&P expects management to operate Altisource with
moderate amounts of long-term debt, maintaining debt to EBITDA of
1.5x-2.5x.  A failed acquisition or operational problem could put
pressure on capital.  If debt to EBITDA were to rise to more than
3.0x, without a credible plan to reduce leverage, S&P could
downgrade the firm.

AMERINDO INVESTMENT: $55M Judgment Not Headed for Quick Appeal
--------------------------------------------------------------
Law360 reported that a New York federal judge blocked an
interlocutory appeal of part of a $55.1 million securities fraud
judgment against Amerindo Investment Advisors Inc., saying that
getting the Second Circuit involved now would needlessly protract
the litigation.

According to the report, U.S. District Judge Richard Sullivan said
Lisa and Debra Mayer could file an appeal regarding their $9.55
million chunk of the award, a punishment for Amerindo's diversion
of investor money, later on.

The case is Securities and Exchange Commission v. Amerindo

ARMOR HOLDCO: Moody's Lowers Corp. Family Rating to 'Caa1'
----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded the corporate family rating
for Armor Holdco, Inc., to Caa1 from B3. Moody's also downgraded
the rating for Armor's senior secured first lien term loan to B3
from B2 and the rating for its senior secured second lien term
loan to Caa2 from Caa1. The outlook for the ratings is stable.

Ratings Rationale

The downgrade to Caa1 of Armor's corporate family rating results
from the company delivering weaker than expected credit metrics
that will be negatively impacted by its announced acquisition of
DF King. Anticipated improvements in the company's leverage
profile have not come to fruition as the company has not paid down
debt or grown cash flow. Armor is now taking on more debt with the
DF King acquisition, thereby increasing leverage. The Caa1 rating
also reflects the firm continuing to report losses and its
exposure to future refinancing risks.

Armor, through its principal operating subsidiaries including
American Stock Transfer & Trust Company and Canadian Stock
Transfer & Trust Company, is the second largest provider of share
registry and associated services in the U.S. and Canada. The DF
King acquisition expands its proxy solicitation business and
provides cross-sell opportunities to new customer relationships
delivered by DF King, as well as diversifies its revenue base with
non-proxy businesses such as bankruptcy. While strategically the
acquisition is strategically sound, there is execution risk in any
merger and the company is taking on greater financial risk to
complete the transaction.

The B3 rating assigned to the senior secured first lien facilities
reflects the priority of their position within Armor's capital
structure. The Caa2 rating assigned to the senior secured second
lien term loan is based on these creditors' secondary claim on
Armor's assets that would limit recoveries in a liquidation
scenario compared to the first lien facilities.


ARMORWORKS ENTERPRISES: Wants to Sell Unused Equipment
------------------------------------------------------
ArmorWorks Enterprises, LLC, asks the Bankruptcy Court for
authorization to sell its equipment to Envirosystems, LLC and Tony
Ramirez outside of the ordinary course.

The equipment ArmorWorks seeks to sell includes:

  A. Six Envirosystems Airwalls (to be sold to Envirosystems,
     LLC);

  B. One tradeshow booth (to be sold to Tony Ramirez); and

  C. Certain miscellaneous handling equipment (to be sold to Tony
     Ramirez), including twenty-five (25) large carts, 70 small
     carts, and 10 tables.

ArmorWorks acquired the Equipment for use in conducting its
business.  ArmorWorks no longer requires the use of the Equipment
and desires to sell the Equipment outside of the ordinary course
of its business to the proposed Buyers.

The Debtor says that due to the nature the used equipment, a
higher and better offer is unlikely if the property was sold by
public auction.

ARMORWORKS ENTERPRISES: Wants July 14 Hearing on 4th Amended Plan
-----------------------------------------------------------------
ArmorWorks Enterprises, LLC, asks the Bankruptcy Court to
conditionally approve the latest iteration of the disclosure
statement explaining its proposed reorganization plan dated May
27, 2014.

The Debtor wants a July 14, 2014 final hearing on the approval of
the Fourth Amended Disclosure Statement and initial confirmation
hearing on the Fourth Amended Joint Plan of Reorganization.

In addition, the Debtor asks the Court to set the deadline for
returning ballots evidencing written acceptance or rejection of
the Plan and the deadline for filing written objections to
confirmation of the Plan and any objections to the Court's final
approval of the Disclosure Statement at July 7, 2014.

The Debtors submit that good cause exists for the Court grant
conditional approval of the Disclosure Statement and allow the
Plan Proponents to immediately solicit acceptances of the Plan.

The Court previously approved the Third Amended Disclosure
Statement in this case.  The Fourth Amended Disclosure Statement
is an updated version of the Third Amended Disclosure Statement
that describes subsequent developments in the case, and provides
adequate information regarding the Plan and the proposed treatment
of allowed claims and equity interests thereunder.

The Debtors are not asking the Court to shorten the time for
creditors and parties in interest to file objections to the Plan
or to shorten the time for completing and returning ballots
accepting or rejecting the Plan.  Under the proposed schedule,
creditors and parties in interest would have 31 days to file
objections to the plan and return ballots before the proposed July
7, 2014 objection and voting deadline.

                           The Plan

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on June 3, 2014,
ArmorWorks Enterprises LLC filed a revised Chapter 11 plan backed
by a $3 million deal with private equity firm Diversis Capital LLC
after failing to sell its business for lack of bidders.

Law360 reported that ArmorWorks inked a deal to escape Chapter 11
under the control of Diversis, which will pay $3 million for a
majority stake in the defense contractor.  According to Law360,
the Diversis-sponsored reorganization plan comes after the planned
auction canceled in February.

Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News, said
the new plan gives them the option of receiving 20% in cash on
emergence from bankruptcy or 100% paid over five years.  Diversis
gets 65.5% of the new common stock and all of the preferred
shares, Mr. Rochelle said.  Managers get some of the equity in
return for contribution of assets, Mr. Rochelle added.

As reported by the TCR on May 7, 2014, Moody's Investors Service
downgraded the ratings of Auxilium Pharmaceuticals, Inc.,
including the Corporate Family Rating to B3 from B2.  "The
downgrade reflects Moody's expectations that declines in Testim,
Auxilium's testosterone gel, will materially reduce EBITDA
in 2014, resulting in negative free cash flow, a weakening
liquidity profile, and extremely high debt/EBITDA," said Moody's
Senior Vice President Michael Levesque.

In the May 6, 2014, edition of the TCR, Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services lowered its corporate credit rating on Auxilium
Pharmaceuticals Inc. to 'CCC' from 'B-'.  "Our rating action on
Auxilium is predicated on our assessment of its liquidity profile
as "weak" and our expectation that the company is likely to
deplete its liquidity sources over the next 12 months," said
credit analyst Maryna Kandrukhin.


BERNARD L. MADOFF: Supreme Court Sets Conference on Ponzi Trustee
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that the U.S. Supreme Court will probably say June 30
whether liquidator of the Bernard Madoff Ponzi schemes will be
allowed a final appeal on its quest to hold financial institutions
to account for their roles in allegedly helping perpetuate fraud.

According to the report, HSBC Holdings Plc, UBS AG and UniCredit
SpA on June 10 filed what was probably their last brief in the
matter.  In the Madoff case, Irving Picard wants to establish the
principle that, as a SIPC trustee, he has greater power than an
ordinary trustee to collect from participants in a fraud, the
report said.

Mr. Rochelle, in a separate report, said the Madoff trustee came
out fighting after the U.S. Solicitor General recommended in May
that the Supreme Court decline to hear an appeal of rulings that
barred the trustee's $10.6 billion in lawsuits against HSBC
Holdings Plc, UBS AG and UniCredit SpA.  Picard's brief filed on
June 3 accused the solicitor general of misreading decisions by
other federal appeals courts and saying there is no conflict with
their rulings when in fact there is, the report said.

The case in the Supreme Court is Picard v. JPMorgan Chase & Co.,
13-448, U.S. Supreme Court (Washington).

                     About Bernard L. Madoff

Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities LLC and Bernard L. Madoff
orchestrated the largest Ponzi scheme in history, with losses
topping US$50 billion.  On Dec. 15, 2008, the Honorable Louis A.
Stanton of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of
New York granted the application of the Securities Investor
Protection Corporation for a decree adjudicating that the
customers of BLMIS are in need of the protection afforded by the
Securities Investor Protection Act of 1970.  The District Court's
Protective Order (i) appointed Irving H. Picard, Esq., as trustee
for the liquidation of BLMIS, (ii) appointed Baker & Hostetler LLP
as his counsel, and (iii) removed the SIPA Liquidation proceeding
to the Bankruptcy Court (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Adv. Pro. No. 08-01789)
(Lifland, J.).  Mr. Picard has retained AlixPartners LLP as claims
agent.

On April 13, 2009, former BLMIS clients filed an involuntary
Chapter 7 bankruptcy petition against Bernard Madoff (Bankr.
S.D.N.Y. 09-11893).  The petitioning creditors -- Blumenthal &
Associates Florida General Partnership, Martin Rappaport
Charitable Remainder Unitrust, Martin Rappaport, Marc Cherno, and
Steven Morganstern -- assert US$64 million in claims against Mr.
Madoff based on the balances contained in the last statements they
got from BLMIS.

On April 14, 2009, Grant Thornton UK LLP as receiver placed Madoff
Securities International Limited in London under bankruptcy
protection pursuant to Chapter 15 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code
(Bankr. S.D. Fla. 09-16751).

The Chapter 15 case was later transferred to Manhattan.  In June
2009, Judge Lifland approved the consolidation of the Madoff SIPA
proceedings and the bankruptcy case.

Judge Denny Chin of the U.S. District Court for the Southern
District of New York on June 29, 2009, sentenced Mr. Madoff to
150 years of life imprisonment for defrauding investors in United
States v. Madoff, No. 09-CR-213 (S.D.N.Y.).

From recoveries in lawsuits coupled with money advanced by SIPC,
Mr. Picard has paid about 58 percent of customer claims totaling
$17.3 billion.  The most recent distribution was in March 2013.

Mr. Picard has collected about $9.35 billion, not including an
additional $2.2 billion that was forfeit to the government and
likewise will go to customers.  Picard is holding almost
$4.4 billion he can't distribute on account of outstanding
appeals and disputes.  The largest holdback, almost $2.8 billion,
results from disputed claims.


BIOFUEL ENERGY: Has Deal to Acquire JBGL for $275 Million
---------------------------------------------------------
BioFuel Energy Corp., on June 10, 2014, entered into a definitive
transaction agreement with certain affiliates of Greenlight
Capital, Inc., and James R. Brickman, pursuant to which the
Company will acquire the equity interests of JBGL Builder Finance
LLC and certain subsidiaries of JBGL Capital, LP, (collectively
"JBGL").

Greenlight beneficially owns approximately 35.4% of the
outstanding common stock of the Company.  Greenlight also holds
780,958 units of limited liability interests in BioFuel Energy,
LLC, which, together with an equal number of shares of Class B
Common Stock, are convertible into shares of the Company's Common
Stock on a one for one basis.  In addition, David Einhorn,
president of Greenlight, is a director of the Company.  The
Acquisition and the related transactions were approved by a
special committee of disinterested directors of the board of
directors of the Company.

Pursuant to the terms and subject to the conditions of the
Agreement, the Company will acquire JBGL for $275 million.  As
consideration in the Acquisition, the Company will issue a number
of shares of Common Stock to each of Greenlight and Brickman such
that immediately after the closing of the Acquisition, after
giving effect to the Rights Offering and the LLC Unit Conversion,
(i) Greenlight will own 49.9% of the outstanding Common Stock and
(ii) Brickman will own 8.4% of the outstanding Common Stock.  The
per share value of the Common Stock issued in the Equity Issuance
will be the weighted average price per share of Common Stock as
quoted on the Nasdaq Stock Market for the five trading days before
Closing.  The remainder of the Purchase Price will be paid in
cash.

To fund a portion of the cash consideration, the Company will
conduct a registered offering of rights, to the holders of its
Common Stock as of a record date to be determined, to purchase
additional shares of Common Stock to raise gross proceeds
(together with the proceeds of Greenlight's purchase of shares of
Common Stock pursuant to the Voting Agreement as well as any
increase in the debt financing, each as described below) of at
least $70,000,000.  Each right will permit the holder to purchase
shares of Common Stock for a per share purchase price equal to 80%
of the average closing price per share for the 10 trading days
immediately following the date the Company files the registration
statement relating to the Rights Offering.  However, in no event
will the per share purchase price be greater than $5.00 per share
or less than $1.50 per share.  The Equity Issuance and
Greenlight's commitment to participate in the Rights Offering and
its commitment to purchase shares of Common Stock pursuant to the
Voting Agreement have been exempted by the Board under the
Company's Section 382 rights plan.  The remaining portion of the
cash consideration will be funded through approximately
$150,000,000 of debt financing to be provided by Greenlight.

In connection with the Acquisition, the Company will amend its
charter to, among other things, change its name, increase its
authorized share capital and add customary ownership limitations
regarding preservation of the Company's net operating loss
carryforwards.

The completion of the Acquisition is subject to certain customary
conditions, including, among other things, (i) the adoption of the
Agreement and the approval of the related transactions by the
Company's stockholders and the approval of the Charter Amendment
by holders of a majority of the outstanding shares of Common Stock
and any Class B Common Stock, (ii) the consummation of the Rights
Offering such that the Company receives in gross proceeds of at
least $70,000,000, (iii) subject to specified standards, the
accuracy of the representations and warranties of the other party,
(iv) the absence of any material adverse effect on the other party
and (v) the performance in all material respects by the other
party of its obligations under the Agreement.

A full-text copy of the Transaction Agreement is available for
free at http://is.gd/ynUvhN

Voting Agreement

On June 10, 2014, and in connection with the execution of the
Agreement, Greenlight entered into a Voting Agreement with the
Company.  Pursuant to the Voting Agreement, Greenlight has agreed,
among other things, to vote (or cause to be voted) the shares of
Common Stock and Class B Common Stock it holds in favor of the
adoption of the Agreement and not to dispose of any such shares to
third parties (other than affiliates) while the Voting Agreement
is in effect.  In addition, Greenlight has agreed to participate
in the Rights Offering for its full pro rata share of Common Stock
and, if its LLC Units are not converted into Common Stock prior to
the record date for the Rights Offering, to purchase the same
number of shares of Common Stock it would have purchased pursuant
to the Rights Offering had all of its LLC units been converted
into Common Stock prior to such record date.

Commitment Letter

On June 10, 2014, and in connection with the execution of the
Agreement, the Company executed a Commitment Letter with
Greenlight, pursuant to which Greenlight and its affiliates have
committed to provide the Company with a five-year term loan
facility in an aggregate principal amount of approximately $150
million to fund, in part, the Acquisition.  The aggregate
principal amount of the facility is subject to increase in the
event that Greenlight fails to obtain backstop commitments for the
Rights Offering and the Company raises less than $70,000,000 in
the Rights Offering (together with the proceeds of Greenlight's
purchase of shares of Common Stock pursuant to the Voting
Agreement as described above).  Amounts drawn under the facility
will bear interest at 9.0% per annum from Closing through the
first anniversary thereof and 10% per annum thereafter, and the
Company will have a one time option to elect to pay up to one
year's interest in kind.

BRICKMAN GROUP: S&P Affirms 'B' CCR; Outlook Stable
---------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services affirmed its 'B' corporate
credit rating on Maryland-based The Brickman Group Ltd. LLC.  The
outlook is stable.  In addition, S&P affirmed its 'B' issue-level
rating on the company's secured first-lien term loan and revolver
following the company's proposed add-on financing transaction.
The term loan will increase by $725 million to $1.46 billion and
the revolver will increase by $100 million to $210 million.  S&P's
'3' recovery rating, indicating its expectation of meaningful
recovery (50%-70%) for debt holders in the event of a default, is
unchanged.

Concurrently, S&P affirmed its 'CCC+' rating on the company's $235
million secured second-lien term loan.  The recovery rating is
'6', indicating S&P's expectation of negligible (0% to 10%)
recovery in the event of a payment default.

S&P expects proceeds from the add-on financing to fund the
acquisition of ValleyCrest (B/Stable/--).  S&P believes the
company will complete the transaction in June 2014.  Upon
completion, S&P will withdraw its corporate credit rating on
ValleyCrest and its issue ratings on ValleyCrest's $265 million
term loan, which will be repaid in connection with this
transaction.

"We believe the addition of ValleyCrest will compliment Brickman's
business and strengthen its position as a national provider of
landscape maintenance services for commercial properties," said
Standard & Poor's credit analyst Linda Phelps.  "ValleyCrest's
current financial sponsor owners, who will continue to hold a
meaningful minority stake in the combined company, will fund a
portion of the purchase with an equity contribution.  Thus, we
estimate the leveraged acquisition will increase pro forma debt-
to-EBITDA leverage modestly to about 7x, from 6.7x for the 12
months ended March 31, 2014.  As such, we expect the company's
credit metrics to remain in line with our indicative ratios for
the rating." (Brickman Group Ltd. LLC. is a private company, and
does not publicly disclose financial data.)

Though the combined company will have over $2 billion in revenue,
Standard & Poor's continues to assess the Brickman's business risk
profile as "weak," incorporating its view that the company's
business remains narrowly focused, will continue to be vulnerable
to changes in weather and the economy, and our opinion that the
landscaping sector's barriers to entry will remain low, especially
at the local level.

S&P's rating outlook on Brickman is stable.  S&P expects operating
performance to remain relatively constant as the company
integrates its businesses.  S&P forecasts leverage to decline to
the mid-6x area over the next year as a result of EBITDA growth
and modest debt reduction.

CAPSTONE INFRASTRUCTURE: S&P Revises Outlook & Affirms 'BB+' CCR
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it revised its outlook on
Toronto-based Capstone Infrastructure Corp. to stable from
positive.  At the same time, Standard & Poor's affirmed its
ratings on the company, including its 'BB+' long-term corporate
credit rating.

The outlook revision reflects S&P's view of Capstone's stable,
albeit reduced cash flow resulting from the new contract for its
power plant at Cardinal, and the company's continued cash flow
that is commensurate with the 'BB+' rating.

"In addition, Capstone has taken on some additional parent-level
debt in conjunction with its purchase of Renewable Energy
Developers Inc., which has negatively affected parent-level credit
metrics," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Stephen Goltz.

The ratings reflect Standard & Poor's view of Capstone's stable
cash flow, the majority of which comes from long-term power
purchase agreements (PPAs) with provincial government agencies and
investment-grade off-takers.  In addition, S&P believes the
company's district heating operations in Sweden and its regulated
water-utility operations in Bristol, U.K., add to its cash-flow
diversity and stability.

The stable outlook reflects S&P's view of a high proportion of
Capstone's cash flow coming from long-term contracts, and
insulation from electricity demand and price risks from PPAs with
investment-grade off-takers.  In addition, the cash flows from the
company's nonpower-related assets add to its cash-flow diversity
and reduce its dependence on the PPAs.

S&P could consider raising the ratings if Capstone keeps its
parent only cash flow-to-debt at 22%-26% even in the event of
further acquisitions.  This could occur if the company acquires or
develops cash flow-generating assets without materially increasing
the level of its parent-level debt.

S&P could consider lowering the ratings if Capstone's overall cash
flow quality weakens materially, which major operational
disruptions in its generation facilities or acquisition of assets
with materially higher cash-flow variability could trigger.  S&P
could also lower the ratings if the company's cash-flow coverage
metrics weaken materially, with adjusted parent only cash flow-to-
debt ratio falling below 20%.  This could happen if Capstone
increasingly uses debt to support its growth initiatives or if its
cash flow declines materially.


COASTLINE INVESTMENTS: Defends Employment of CBRE Inc. as Broker
----------------------------------------------------------------
Coastline Investment LLC, et al., responded to the objection to
the application to employ CBRE, Inc. as real estate broker
effective as of April 1, 2014, stating that the CBRE application
provides for a commission structure depending on whether CBRE
procures a buyer; and the Debtors have appropriate insurance
coverage.

According to the Debtors, the objection asserted that CBRE must
not be employed because the Debtors are not in control of their
hotels and lack insurance.

First General Bank, a secured creditor with respect to the real
properties located at 31010 West Temple Avenue, Pomona, California
and 3120 and 3122 West Temple Pomona, California, in its
objection, stated the hotels are not insured.

First General Bank has loaned $5,250,000 to each Debtor with the
hotels as collateral.

Coastline is the owner of a hotel located at the top of a
prominent hill with views in Pomona, California, and Diamond is
the owner of the 161-room hotel located in Pomona, California.

The Debtors said that prior to the Petition Date, they had
procured potential buyer for the hotels which would yield a much
higher price than the fire-sale price that would likely result
from a trustee sale at foreclosure.

The Debtors tapped CBRE to, among other things:

   1. advertise and market the hotels to interested parties;

   2. show hotels to interested parties; and

   3. represent estates as sellers in connection with the sale of
      the hotels.

The Debtors proposed to compensate CBRE on these terms:

   a. in the event of a sale of the hotels, CBRE will be paid a
commission equal to three percent of the gross sale if the
marketing team represents both buyer and seller and four percent
of the gross sale price if the marketing team represents only the
sellers;

   b. the listing terms goes from April 1, 2014, to Sept. 30; and

   c) disputes between the Debtors and CBRE will be resolved by
binding arbitration.

Michael Shustak, senior vice president at Urban Investment Group
of CBRE, related that the Debtors specifically sought assistance
of three professionals for the engagement of Phillip Sample, Chris
Caras and Mr. Shustak.

Mr. Shustak assures the Court that CBRE is a "disinterested
person" as that term is defined in Section 101(14) of the
Bankruptcy Code.

                   About Coastline and Diamond

Coastline Investments, doing business as Hilltop Suites Hotel, and
Diamond Waterfalls LLC, doing business as Diamond Bar Inn &
Suites, filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy petitions (Bankr. C.D. Cal.
Case No. 14-13028 and 14-13030) in Los Angeles on Feb. 18, 2014.
The cases are jointly administered under Lead Case No. 14-30328.

Coastline Investments is the owner of a hotel located at the top
of a prominent hill with sweeping views in Pamona, California.
The Hilltop Hotel consists of 130 suites located on three acres of
hilltop property by Interstates 10 and 57, Cal-Poly Tech
University, and the Los Angeles County fairgrounds, Fairplex.  The
Hilltop Hotel has three hotel floors along with two levels of
parking and features and outdoor pool, spa, exercise fitness
center, sauna, steam room and a full service restaurant, lounge,
meeting spaces and a banquet ballroom to accommodate 300 guests.

Diamond is the owner of a 161-room hotel located in Pomona,
California.  The Diamond Hotel is a full-service hotel, which
includes a business center, meeting facilities, pool, spa, fitness
center, steam, sauna and offices.

The Debtors acquired both of the hotels through voluntary Chapter
11 bankruptcy court 11 U.S.C. Sec. 363 sales in February 2012.
The Hilltop Hotel was acquired from Shilo Inn, Pamona Hilltop, LLC
(Case No. 11-26270) and the Diamond Hotel was acquired from Shilo
Inn, Diamond Bar LLC (Case No. 10-60884).

The Debtors sought bankruptcy protection after the receiver
appointed for the hotels scheduled a trustee sale for both hotels.
The receiver was appointed at the behest of the investor group
which provided a secured loan of $2,500,000, which the Debtors
defaulted.  The Debtors also have loans from First General Bank
each in the amount of $5,250,000.

Shin-Chung Liu is the 100% membership owner and managing member of
both of the Debtors.  The Debtors' affairs are managed by Liberty
Capital Management Corporation.

Judge Richard M. Neiter has been assigned to the cases.

The Debtors are represented by David B. Golubchick, and J.P.
Fritz, Esq., at Levene, Neale, Bender, Yoo & Brill L.L.P., in Los
Angeles, California.

No committee of unsecured creditors was appointed in the case.


COLDWATER CREEK: Liquidating Trust to Be Formed Under Plan
----------------------------------------------------------
Coldwater Creek Inc., et al., submitted to the Bankruptcy Court a
First Amended Disclosure Statement explaining the First Amended
Joint Plan of Liquidation of the Debtors dated June 6, 2014.

According to the Amended Disclosure Statement, the Plan provides
for the liquidation and conversion of all of the Debtors'
remaining assets to cash and the distribution of the net proceeds
realized from the assets to creditors holding Allowed Claims in
accordance with the relative priorities established in the
Bankruptcy Code.  After payment in full in cash of the Term Loan
Claims, the Plan contemplates the formation of a Liquidating Trust
and appointment of a Liquidating Trustee upon the Effective Date
to, among other things, resolve Disputed Claims, make
distributions to Holders of Allowed General Unsecured Claims and
close the Chapter 11 Cases.

The Plan also proposed this recovery to creditors:

   Class        Claim/Interest                  Expected Recovery
   -----        --------------                  -----------------
     1          Term Loan Claims                     100%
     2          Priority Non- Tax Claims             100%
     3          Other Secured Claims                 100%
     4          General Unsecured Claims          7% - 9%
     5          Intercompany Claims                    0%
     6          Intercompany Interests                 0%
     7          Interests in Coldwater                 0%

A copy of the Amended Disclosure Statement is available for free
at http://bankrupt.com/misc/COLDWATERCREEK_531_amendedds.pdf

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on May 20, 2014,
the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors and multiple other
interested parties in the case, including the Stoltz management
landlords, oppose the retailer's plan to liquidate its 362 stores.

The Creditors' Committee, according to Bill Rochelle, the
bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News, complained that the Plan,
which was filed in April when the retailer sought bankruptcy
protection, improperly gives lawsuit immunity to secured lenders,
management and shareholders.  The Creditors' Committee also asked
the Court to "slow down" the "rushed" timeline of the five-week
old case "before significant estate resources are needlessly
wasted," Sara Randazzo, writing for The Wall Street Journal,
reported.

The Committee has also asked the Court to reconsider the interim
approval it gave to the Debtor's up to $75 million debtor-in-
possession loan that the creditors say "gave away the store,"
Law360 reported.  The Committee, in a sharply worded motion before
the Court, alleges that the retailer had no need for the credit
facility extended by Wells Fargo Bank NA, the Law360 report
further related.

A hearing was set for May 21 for the Court to approve the
disclosure statement, but the Journal said an attorney for
Coldwater said the Debtor has agreed to push back the hearing on
the exit plan until June 12, a move that counsel for the Committee
said is a "positive development" but still doesn't satisfy their
objection.  The Journal said the Committee wants more time to work
with Coldwater on a new creditor-repayment plan that would allow
creditors to pursue litigation against the retailer's former
officers and lenders and gives the Committee more control over the
liquidation process.

In addition to opposing the Disclosure Statement, and by
extension, the Plan, and the interim DIP approval, the Committee
also opposes Coldwater's proposed executive bonus program commonly
called "key employee retention plan" and "key employee incentive
plan" in bankruptcy and proposed fees earmarked for investment
banker Perella Weinberg Partners LP.  The Committee called the
proposed KEIP "outrageous" and the proposed KERP "highly
questionable," according to Bankruptcy Data.  If the bonuses are
approved, four senior managers would qualify for $600,000 in
payments if cash flow exceeds $56.2 million in the company's
projections, while bonuses rise to $2.55 million if cash flow
reaches $82.2 million, Bloomberg said.  The KERP would cover 28
employees, representing 10 percent to 45 percent of base salary
and costing $1.1 million, Bloomberg added.

Coldwater was given authority by the Court to conduct going-out-of
business sales, which started on Mother's Day weekend.  The
retailer filed with the Court a notice of auction results saying
it received a successful bid for the asset classes of inventory;
furniture, fixtures and equipment; customer lists and intellectual
property from a joint venture comprised of Hilco Merchant
Resources and Gordon Brothers Retail Partners.  The bid amount is
$161 million, and the back-up bid of $156 million was presented by
a joint venture comprised of Tiger Capital Group, SB Capital Group
and Great American Group WF, Bankruptcy Data reported.

As agents, the liquidators guarantee a recovery of at least 128%
of the cost of the merchandise with an estimated aggregate cost of
$90 million to $105 million, Bloomberg said.  Once sale proceeds
cover the expenses of the sale, the guaranteed amount and an 8.5%
fee based on the cost of merchandise, the liquidators and
Coldwater will split the excess 50/50, Bloomberg added.  The
liquidators also guaranteed $29 million from the sale of
Coldwater's furniture, fixtures, equipment and intellectual
property, Bloomberg related.

COLDWATER CREEK: Gets Final Approval to Incur $75MM Financing
-------------------------------------------------------------
The Bankruptcy Court authorized, on a final basis, Coldwater Creek
Inc., et al., to:

   1. obtain $75,000,000 of postpetition financing from Wells
Fargo Bank, National Association, as the Prepetition ABL Agent and
as the DIP Agent;

   2. use cash collateral; and

   3. provide the lender with adequate protection liens,
superpriority administrative expense claim status as adequate
protection to prepetition secured lenders.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on April 14, 2014, to
facilitate an orderly wind-down of their operations, the Debtors
arranged $75 million of senior secured superpriority debtor in
possession financing from Wells Fargo.  Approximately $40 million
of the $75 million is a "roll-up" of prepetition obligations under
the ABL Credit Agreement.

The DIP lender has committed to provide $42 million on an interim
basis, which Coldwater Creek may use for the wind-down of the
Debtors' operations in accordance with a budget.

                       Committee's Objection

The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors had asked the Court
to deny, on a final basis, the DIP motion.  Previously, the
Committee requested that the Bankruptcy Court reconsider the
interim order (i) authorizing postpetition financing; (ii)
granting liens and providing superpriority administrative expense
priority; (iii) authorizing use of cash collateral; and (iv)
granting adequate protection to prepetition secured lenders.

The Committee asserted that there was no need for the Debtors to
enter into the DIP Facility.  Under the Interim Order, the DIP
Lenders received approximately $1.1 million in fees for an
unnecessary and untapped loan (but for the roll-up) that was
"repaid" in a matter of weeks.

The Committee added that it will likely not even receive all of
the documents sufficient to conduct its investigation into the
prepetition activities of the Debtors and the Prepetition lenders
for at least another three-to-four weeks, which will leave the
Committee with at best just literally a few days before the
Challenge Deadline established under the Interim DIP Order
expires.

Prepetition Term Loan Parties -- CC Holdings of Delaware, LLC -
Series A, CC Holdings of Delaware, LLC - Series B, and CC Holdings
Agency Corporation -- objected to the Official Committee of
Unsecured Creditors' motion to reconsider the interim order (I)
authorizing postpetition financing, and use of cash collateral,
stating that accusing the Debtors, the Prepetition Term Loan
Parties, and all of their respective professionals of bad faith,
and implying that these parties conspired to defraud the Court is
well beyond the pale of responsible advocacy.

The Debtors also objected to the Committee's motion to reconsider,
stating that the motion was remarkable, and reckless.  While some
of the false and baseless accusations in the Motion may be
attributable to the Committee's fundamental misunderstanding of
the challenges of operating in a distressed, retail environment
and the particular challenges faced by these Debtors in the days
and weeks leading to the bankruptcy filing, all cannot be forgiven
by the misunderstanding.

Wells Fargo also responded to the motion to reconsider.

As of the Petition Date, the Debtors were liable to the
Prepetition ABL Lender for Prepetition ABL Debt on account of
extensions of credit in the approximate principal amount of
$27,872,598, plus letters of credit in the approximate stated
amount of not less than $9,687,979, plus interest accrued and
accruing (at the non-default rate set forth in the Prepetition ABL
Financing Documents), plus costs, expenses, fees and other amounts
provided for under the Prepetition ABL Financing Documents

Coldwater Creek is a multi-channel retailer that offers its
merchandise through retail stores across the country, its catalog
and its e-commerce Web site, http://www.coldwatercreek.com/

catalog-based marketer, Coldwater evolved into a multi-channel
specialty retailer operating 334 premium retail stores, 31 factory
outlet stores and seven day spa locations throughout the United
States.

As of the bankruptcy filing, the Debtors domestically employ a
total of approximately 5,990 employees throughout their retail
locations, corporate headquarters and distribution, design and
call centers.

Coldwater Creek Inc. and its debtor-affiliates sought Chapter 11
bankruptcy protection (Bankr. D. Del. Lead Case No. 14-10867) on
April 11, 2014, to liquidate their assets.

Coldwater Creek Inc. disclosed assets of $721,468,388 plus
undetermined amount and liabilities of $425,475,739 plus
undetermined amount.  Affiliate Coldwater Creek U.S. Inc.
estimated $100 million to $500 million in assets and liabilities.

The Debtors have drawn $37.5 million and have approximately
$10 million in letters of credit outstanding under a senior
secured credit facility (ABL facility) provided by lenders led by
Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as agent.  The Debtors
also owe $96 million, which includes accrued interest and
approximately $23 million representing a prepayment premium
payable, under a term loan from lenders led by CC Holding Agency
Corporation, as agent.  Aside from the funded debt, the Debtors
have accumulated a significant amount of accrued and unpaid trade

COLDWATER CREEK: Panel Balks at Perella Weinberg Compensation
-------------------------------------------------------------
The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors in the Chapter 11
cases of Coldwater Creek Inc., et al., objected to the Debtors'
application to employ Perella Weinberg Partners LP as investment
banker nunc pro tunc to the Petition Date.

According to the Committee, PWP's proposed compensation package
and terms of retention are not reasonable and must not be approved
unless significantly modified.

The committee noted that the Debtors improperly seek to handsomely
compensate PWP for services that it provided prepetition.  The
Debtors proposed to pay PWP a $1 million financing fee upon final
approval of debtor-in-possession financing, and another $1 million
transaction fee upon confirmation of their liquidating plan.   The
Debtors filed both their Plan and DIP Motion on the Petition Date.
The Debtors sought to pay PWP a sale transaction fee to be
determined in the Debtors' sole discretion based on the value
achieved from the sale of intellectual property assets of the
Company as part of the Plan, payable promptly upon approval of any
such sale by the Bankruptcy Court.

COLOREP INC: Synergy Partners & M. Cohen Oppose Case Dismissal
--------------------------------------------------------------
Synergy Partners USA, LLC and Michael Cohen seek a delay of the
dismissal of the cases of Colorep, Inc., et al., on the grounds
that dismissal, while two administrative expense claimants' claims
have not been paid, is not in the best interests of the creditors
or the Debtors' estates and Synergy and Cohen will suffer
prejudice if the case is dismissed before their Motion for
Administrative Claims is heard.

Synergy and Cohen asserts that they provided postpetition services
to the Debtors for which they have not been paid.

If however the Court is inclined to grant the Motion to Dismiss,
Synergy and Cohen seek that the Court retain jurisdiction over the
Motion for Administrative Claims and the enforcement of payment of
the administrative claims.

CROZER-KEYSTONE: S&P Lowers Rating to 'BB'; Outlook Stable
----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its long-term rating
and underlying rating (SPURs) on Delaware County Authority, Pa.'s
hospital revenue bonds, issued for the obligated group of Crozer
Keystone Health System (CKHS), two notches to 'BB' from 'BBB-'.
The outlook is stable.

The obligated group consists of Crozer Chester Medical Center
(CCMC) and Delaware County Memorial Hospital (DCMH).

The downgrade reflects Standard & Poor's opinion of a sharp
decrease in operating performance throughout the first nine months
of fiscal 2014, ended March 31, coupled with a potential rate
covenant violation in fiscal 2014 that could trigger the immediate
acceleration of CKHS' direct-placement debt.  While Standard &
Poor's understands CKHS has the required funds on hand to redeem
the direct-placement debt in a timely manner, it will stress, what
Standard & Poor's considers, an already weak balance sheet and
lower days' cash on hand to levels that are more consistent with
the lower rating.  In addition, CKHS' largest union contract at
CCMC, which expired earlier this month, covers 600 employees; this
raises the possibility of a job action at some point over the
next few months.

"We believe the system's leading market position despite recent
softer volume and a balance sheet that, at the lower rating,
provides the organization with some flexibility to work through
recent operating pressure.  We also believe management's plan of
correction will likely result in some improvement in fiscal 2015
performance; we, however, still expect losses to persist, just at
a lower level," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Margaret
McNamara.  "We could base a lower rating on management's inability
to implement the turnaround plan successfully and its inability to
improve operating losses in fiscal 2015 in-line with the forecast,
coupled with a significant decrease in unrestricted reserves in
addition to the potential decrease due to the direct-placement
redemption.  We consider a positive rating action over the outlook
period unlikely due to recent operating results and our belief
that performance will likely remain somewhat pressured next year;
we, however, would view a sustained return to profitability and
coverage of more than 2x favorably."

The rating service believes future rating movement will likely
hinge on management's ability to execute the turnaround plan and
demonstrate its capability to stabilize performance over the long
term, successfully renegotiate the union contract with limited
interruption to the business, and maintain debt service coverage
in excess of the required covenant.

The stable outlook at the lower rating incorporates Standard &
Poor's expectation that operating losses will likely continue in
fiscal 2015, albeit at a lower level, and that CKHS will likely
have to accelerate the repayment of direct-placement debt.


CTI BIOPHARMA: Phase 2 Clinical Trial of Tosedostat Initiated
-------------------------------------------------------------
CTI BioPharma Corp. announced the initiation of an international
cooperative group of Phase 2 clinical trial of tosedostat in
combination with low-dose cytarabine in older patients with Acute
Myeloid Leukemia (AML) or high risk Myelodysplastic Syndrome
(MDS).  Tosedostat is a first-in-class selective inhibitor of
aminopeptidases, which are required by tumor cells to provide
amino acids necessary for growth and tumor cell survival.  The
trial is being conducted by the National Cancer Research Institute
Haematological Oncology Study Group under the sponsorship of
Cardiff University.  The trial management group is led by
Professor Alan K. Burnett, Head of Haematology in the Department
of Medical Genetics, Haematology and Pathology at the School of
Medicine at Cardiff University.  Chroma Therapeutics Ltd., from
whom CTI licensed tosedostat, is facilitating drug supply for the
trial.

"As the population of patients 65 years of age and older with AML
continues to grow, there are a large number of patients who are
not suitable for conventional intensive chemotherapy and for these
patients there is a significant unmet need for an alternative
therapy that is effective and well tolerated," said Professor
Burnett.  "New agents that are being developed to target the
underlying biology of the disease, such as tosedostat, may provide
hope for these patients where there has been very little
improvement in the outcome of these patients over the last couple
of decades.  Tosedostat has demonstrated encouraging clinical
activity in AML with manageable toxicities that can be
administered primarily as out-patient therapy, and we are pleased
to get this study underway."

In this Phase 2/3 trial, referred to as the AML Less Intensive
(LI-1) trial, patients will be randomized to standard treatment,
low dose cytarabine, versus one of five novel investigational
treatments, one of which is tosedostat, each in combination with
low dose cytarabine.  The trial will utilize a "Pick a Winner"
trial design.  Under such a design, the Phase 2 portion of the
trial is expected to initially enroll 50 patients per arm, and, if
the complete response rate of cytarabine plus novel therapy
appears satisfactory, an additional 50 patients per arm would be
enrolled in the Phase 2 portion.  Based on an interim analysis of
complete response results, the trial management group may
determine to move the applicable trial into the Phase 3 portion,
which would then undertake to enroll 100 additional patients (for
a total of 200 patients per arm).  Overall survival will serve as
the primary endpoint of the trial.

                            Going Concern

"Our independent registered public accounting firm included an
explanatory paragraph in its reports on our consolidated financial
statements for each of the years ended December 31, 2007 through
December 31, 2011 regarding their substantial doubt as to our
ability to continue as a going concern.  Although our independent
registered public accounting firm removed this going concern
explanatory paragraph in its report on our  December 31, 2012
consolidated financial statements, we expect to continue to need
to raise additional financing to develop our business and satisfy
obligations as they become due.  The inclusion of a going concern
explanatory paragraph in future years may negatively impact the
trading price of our common stock and make it more difficult, time
consuming or expensive to obtain necessary financing, and we
cannot guarantee that we will not receive such an explanatory
paragraph in the future," the Company said in its annual report
for the year ended Dec. 31, 2013.

The Company also said it may not be able to maintain its listings
on The NASDAQ Capital Market and the MTA in Italy, or trading on

one or more listing requirements."

                       About Elbit Imaging Ltd.

Tel-Aviv, Israel-based Elbit Imaging Ltd. (TASE, NASDAQ: EMITF)
hold investments in real estate and medical companies.  The
Company, through its subsidiaries, also develops shopping and
entertainment centers in Central Europe and invests in and manages
hotels.

Since February 2013, Elbit has intensively endeavored to come to
an arrangement with its creditors.  Elbit has said it has been
hanging by a thread for more than five months.  It has encountered
cash flow difficulties and this burdens its day to day activities,
and it certainly cannot make the necessary investments to improve
its assets.  In light of the arrangement proceedings, and
according to the demands of most of the bondholders, as well as an
agreement that was signed on March 19, 2013, between Elbit and the
Trustees of six out of eight series of bonds, Elbit is prohibited,
inter alia, from paying off its debts to the financial creditors -
- and as a result a petition to liquidate Elbit was filed, and
Bank Hapoalim has declared its debts immediately payable,
threatening to realize pledges that were given to the Bank on
material assets of the Company -- and Elbit undertook not to sell
material assets of the Company and not to perform any transaction
that is not during its ordinary course of business without giving
an advance notice to the trustees.

Accountant Rony Elroy has been appointed as expert for examining
the debt arrangement in the Company.

In July 2013, Elbit Imaging's controlling shareholders, Europe-
Israel MMS Ltd. and Mr. Mordechay Zisser, notified the Company
that the Tel Aviv District Court has appointed Adv. Giroa Erdinast
as a receiver with regards to the ordinary shares of the Company
held by Europe Israel securing Europe Israel's obligations under
its loan agreement with Bank Hapoalim B.M.  The judgment stated
that the Receiver is not authorized to sell the Company's shares
at this stage.  Following a request of Europe-Israel, the Court
also delayed any action to be taken with regards to the sale of
those shares for a period of 60 days.  Europe Israel and

ENERGY FUTURE: Court Extends Schedules Filing Deadline to June 30
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Christopher S. Sontchi of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the District of Delaware has entered an order extending for the
third time the deadline for Energy Future Holdings Corp. and its
debtor-affiliates to file schedules of assets and liabilities,
schedules of current income and expenditures, schedules of
executory contracts and unexpired leases, and statements of
financial affairs.  The new order gives the Debtors a June 30,
2014 deadline.

As previously reported by the Troubled Company Reporter, the
Debtors sought an extension, saying that efforts in preparing for
the Chapter 11 filing, preparing the business to transition into
Chapter 11, and negotiating with their significant creditor
constituencies made it difficult for them to prepare the schedules
and statements.

On April 29, 2014, Energy Future Holdings and 70 affiliated
companies sought Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection (Bankr. D. Del.
Lead Case No. 14-10979) after reaching a deal with some key
financial stakeholders to keep its businesses operating while
reducing its roughly $40 billion in debt.

The Debtors' cases have been assigned to Judge Christopher S.
Sontchi (CSS).  The Debtors are seeking to have their cases
jointly administered for procedural purposes.

As of Dec. 31, 2013, EFH Corp. reported total assets of $36.4
billion in book value and total liabilities of $49.7 billion.  The

ENERGY FUTURE: Restructuring Support Agreement Hearing on July 18
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware has set for
July 18, 2014, at 9:30 a.m. (Eastern Daylight Time) the hearing to
consider Energy Future Holdings Corp. and its debtor-affiliates'
motion for entry of an order authorizing the Debtors to assume the
restructuring support agreement and modifying the automatic stay.

The Debtors asked the Court on May 16, 2014, to authorize the
Debtors to assume the restructuring support agreement and
modifying the automatic stay.  Objections to the motion are due on
July 11, 2014, at 4:00 p.m. (Eastern Daylight Time)

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on May 30, 2014, the
Debtors, in anticipation of their bankruptcy filing, entered on
April 29, 2014, into a Restructuring Support and Lock-Up Agreement
with various stakeholders to effect an agreed upon restructuring
of the Reorganizing Entities through a pre-arranged Chapter 11
plan of reorganization.  On May 16, 2014, the Reorganizing
Entities and certain of the Consenting Parties entered into the
Second Amendment to the Restructuring Support and Lock-Up
Agreement.  The Amendment provides that the definition of
"Required Consenting Creditors" in the RSA is revised to: "at
least three (3) members of the Ad Hoc TCEH Committee who are
Consenting Creditors who collectively hold at least 50.1% of the
TCEH First Lien Claims held by the members of the Ad Hoc TCEH
Committee who are Consenting Creditors."

The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors says in a court
filing dated May 29, 2014, that it has just commenced its analysis
of the RSA and related transactions and is not yet in a position
to fully assess their impact on these estates or unsecured
creditors generally.  "It is clear at this time that the proposed
RSA leaves virtually nothing to satisfy the billions of dollars of
TCEH unsecured claims, while allowing the proponents of the RSA to
capture the valuable equity interest in the Debtors' ongoing
operations," the Committee states.

ETHIAS SA: Belgian Insurer OK'd to Amend Restructuring Plan
-----------------------------------------------------------
Law360 reported that Belgian insurance giant Ethias SA has won
European Commission approval to amend its 2010 restructuring plan,
prolonging by three years the rundown of its unprofitable retail
life insurance portfolio, the agency announced.  According to the
report, the amendments enable Ethias to continue to run down its
retail life reserves for another three years, but no longer
obligate it to fully divest or run down the portfolio unless an
increase in market interest rates allows it to sell the contracts,
the commission said.

The amendments also alter the corporate governance to give
Vitrufin more independence from Ethias, the report cited the
statement.  The proposed new commitments replace those in the
original restructuring plan that were never implemented, according
to the commission's statement, the report said.

---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its 'BB-' issue-level
rating and '3' recovery rating to EVERTEC Group LLC's proposed

   -----                                 ----
   Publication Date                      June 16, 2014
   Solicitation Date                     June 16, 2014

   Deadline to File Voting Report        July 23, 2014
   Confirmation Hearing                  July 28, 2014 at 10 a.m.

                  Disclosure Statement Objections

Atlas Capital Management, LP, CK Investments, LLC, and PEAK6
Opportunities Fund LLC ask the Bankruptcy Court to deny approval
of the disclosure statement for the second amended joint plan of
liquidation of Fisker Automotive Holdings, Inc., and its related
debtors. They also point out that the ballot and solicitation
procedures are at best vague and ambiguous.

The objectors are plaintiffs in various complaints filed against
Fisker each pending in the United States District Court for the
District of Delaware:

   (a) Atlas Capital Management, LP v. Henrik Fisker, et al.
       Case No. 13-cv-02100-SLR;

   (b) CK Investments, LLC, et al. v. Henrik Fisker, et al., Case
       No. 14-cv-00118-UNA; and

   (c) PEAK6 Opportunities Fund LLC, et al. v. Henrik Fisker, et
       al., Case No. 14-cv-00119-UNA.

The plaintiffs are purchasers of preferred stock or membership
units in entities that exclusively purchased or held Fisker's
preferred stock.

Norman M. Monhait, Esq., at Rosenthal, Monhait & Goddess, P.A., in
Wilmington, Delaware, relates that the plaintiffs object to the
adequacy of the disclosure statement and solicitation procedures
on these grounds:

   (a) the disclosure statement fails to provide sufficient
       information to satisfy Section 1125(a) of the Bankruptcy
       Code and should not be approved;

   (b) the third party release, injunction and exculpation
       provisions are broad, ambiguous and improper and need to be
       clarified;

   (c) the solicitation procedures and ballots are discriminatory
       and improper to the extent they do not clearly and
       unambiguously address the impact of the third party release
       on creditors who are not entitled to vote on the plan or
       who may hold more than one claim;

   (d) the disclosure statement fails to provide an explanation
       for the indeterminate term of injunctions and stays beyond
       confirmation of the plan;

   (e) the disclosure statement fails to explain the absence of
       and the plan fails provide an adequate protocol for the
       preservation of the Fisker's books and records after
       confirmation; and

   (f) the disclosure statement fails to describe available
       insurance as it relates to the plaintiffs' claims asserted
       or to be asserted in the Chapter 11 cases and in the
       securities actions or disclose whether the plan intends to
       deny plaintiffs the right to proceed with their claims to
       the extent of available directors' and officers' liability
       insurance coverage, irrespective of any injunction or
       distribution under the plan.

                         Fisker Responds

James E. O'Neill, Esq., at Pachulski Stang Ziehl & Jones LLP, in
Wilmington, Delaware, argues that while the plaintiffs' objection
raises questions for plan confirmation, Fisker has nonetheless
supplemented the disclosures provided by their disclosure
statement specifically to address issues raised by the plaintiffs
and have filed a revised disclosure statement.

Mr. O'Neill notes that the revised disclosure statement
incorporates additional disclosures regarding the plaintiffs'
asserted claims, the plan's effect and pending claims and causes
of action, and voting creditors' ability to opt out of Fisker's
proposed third-party releases.

Accordingly, Fisker asks the Court to overrule the objection and
approve the revised disclosure statement because it satisfies the
requirements of Section 1125 of the Bankruptcy Code.

                    Committee Reserves Rights

The official committee of unsecured creditors reserves all of its
rights in connection with its plan objections pending its receipt
of the amended plan and disclosure statement.

                     About Fisker Automotive

Fisker Automotive Holdings, Inc., developer of the Karma plug-in
hybrid electric sedan, filed a petition for Chapter 11 protection
(Bankr. D. Del. Case No. 13-13087) on Nov. 22, 2013.

Fisker estimated assets of more than $100 million and listed debt
of $500 million in its bankruptcy petition.  The assets include an
assembly plant purchased for $21 million from General Motors Corp.
The plant never operated.  The cars were assembled in Finland.

Fisker received a $529 million loan from the Department of
Energy's Advanced Technology Vehicles Manufacturing Loan Program
and drew down about $192 million before the department froze the
loan after Fisker failed to hit several development targets.  The
company defaulted on its loan in April 2013.

Bankruptcy Judge Kevin Gross presides over the case.  The Debtors
have tapped James H.M. Sprayregen, P.C., Esq., Anup Sathy, P.C.,
Esq., and Ryan Preston Dahl, Esq., at Kirkland & Ellis LLP, in
Chicago, Illinois, as co-counsel; Laura Davis Jones, Esq., James
E. O'Neill, Esq., and Peter J. Keane, Esq., at Pachulski Stang
Ziehl & Jones LLP, in Wilmington, Delaware, as co-counsel;
Beilinson Advisory Group as restructuring advisors; and Rust
Consulting/Omni Bankruptcy, as notice and claims agent and
administrative advisor.

On Nov. 5, 2013, the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors
was appointed. The members are: (a) David M. Cohen; (b) Sven
Etzelsberger; (c) Kuster Automotive Door Systems GmbH; (d) Magna
E-Car USA, LLC; (e) Supercars & More SRL; and (f) TK Holdings Inc.
The Committee is represented by William R. Baldiga, Esq., and
Sunni P. Beville, Esq., at Brown Rudnick LLP; and Mark Minuti,
Esq., at Saul Ewing LLP.  Emerald Capital Advisors Corp. is the
financial advisors for the Committee.

Fisker sought bankruptcy protection to pursue a private sale of
its business to Hybrid Tech Holdings, LLC.  The Committee,
however, wants a sale public sale, and has identified Wanxiang
America Corporation as stalking horse bidder.

Hybrid was initially under contract to buy Fisker in exchange for
$75 million of the $168.5 million government loan it acquired
immediately before the Debtor's Chapter 11 filing.  Hybrid later
raised its offer by adding an additional $1 million cash and
agreeing to share proceeds from the sale of a facility in Delaware
it doesn't intend to operate.  Hybrid also offered to pay real
estate taxes on the Delaware plant.  Hybrid also will waive $90
million in deficiency claims that otherwise would dilute unsecured
creditors' recovery.

Wanxiang, as stalking horse bidder, initially offered $25.8
million in cash.  However, Wanxiang has said it has raised its
offer by $10 million and is willing to go higher.

After the hearings on Jan. 10 and 13, the Court directed a public
auction, and capped Hybrid's credit bid to $25 million.

In response, Hybrid raised its offer to $55 million.

Hybrid is represented by Tobias Keller, Esq., and Peter
Benvenutti, Esq., at Keller & Benvenutti LLP, in San Francisco,
California.

Wanxiang, which bought A123 Systems, Inc., a manufacturer of
lithium-ion batteries used in electric vehicles such as the Fisker
Karma, in a bankruptcy auction early in 2013 for $256.6 million,
is represented in Fisker's case by Sidley Austin LLP's Bojan
Guzina, Esq., and Andrew F. O'Neill, Esq.; and Young Conaway
Stargatt & Taylor, LLP's Edmon L. Morton, Esq., Robert S. Brady,
Esq., and Kenneth J. Enos, Esq.

On Feb. 19, 2014, the Bankruptcy Court approved the sale of
Fisker's assets to Wanxiang America Corporation.  The sale closed
on March 24.  The sale to Wanxiang is valued at approximately $150
million, Fisker said in a news statement.

On March 27, 2014, the Court authorized Fisker Automotive Holdings
to change its name to FAH Liquidating Corp. and its affiliate,
Fisker Automotive Inc., to FA Liquidating Corp., following the
sale.


FITNESS INT'L: Moody's Assigns B2 CFR & Rates $2BB Bank Debt B1
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a B2 Corporate Family Rating
and B3-PD Probability of Default Rating to Fitness International,
LLC ("LA Fitness"). Moody's also assigned a B1 rating to the
company's proposed $2 billion senior secured bank credit facility,
consisting of a $350 million revolver expiring 2018, a $150
million term loan A due 2018, and a $1,500 million term loan B due
2020. The rating outlook is stable. This is the first time Moody's
has rated LA Fitness and all ratings are subject to the execution
of the transaction as currently proposed and Moody's review of
final documentation.

Proceeds from the proposed bank facilities will be used to
refinance LA Fitness' existing $475 million of debt and purchase
the ownership units from one of the existing private equity
partners. Approximately $210 million of the $350 million revolver
will be drawn at close.

New Ratings Assigned:

Corporate Family Rating at B2

Probability of Default Rating at B3-PD

$350 million senior secured revolver due 2018 at B1 (LGD2, 23%)

$150 million senior secured term loan A due 2018 at B1 (LGD2, 23%)

$1,500 million senior secured term loan B due 2020 at B1 (LGD2,
23%)

Stable rating outlook

Ratings Rationale

LA Fitness' B2 Corporate Family Rating ("CFR") reflects the
company's relatively high leverage -- pro forma Moody's adjusted
debt/EBITDA is about 5.8 times for the LTM period ended March 31,
2014 -- which is high for a B2 rated entity per Moody's Business
and Consumer Services rating methodology and its negative trend in
comparable same store sales over the past year. Moody's expects
that free cash flow will be modest over the next two years as the
company continues to open new clubs and that permanent debt
reduction above and beyond required amortization will be minimal
over this time frame. The ratings also reflect the partial
ownership by private equity. The owners took a relatively large
dividend in 2013 and event risk related to another potential
dividend remains despite management owning a majority of the
company. The B2 CFR is supported by the company's large revenue
base, good geographic diversification, and good interest coverage
of about 2.0 times (EBITDA-capex/interest) including all capex and
about 4.0 times when only including maintenance capex. Also
considered is the company's strong EBITDA margin relative to
peers, good membership trends as the company has invested in
growing the number of clubs organically and through acquisitions,
strong free cash flow before growth capex, and the favorable long-
term fundamentals for the fitness industry.

LA Fitness has a good liquidity profile. Moody's expects the
company's cash balances and free cash flow will be sufficient to
cover interest, tax requirements, capex and required amortization
over the next 12 months. The company also has access to a $350
million revolver that expires in 2018 (approximately $210 million
will be drawn at closing).

LA Fitness' stable rating outlook reflects Moody's expectation
that operating performance will continue to improve over the next
year as the company expands the number of clubs and that free cash
flow will remain modestly positive despite a high level of growth
capex over the next two years.

The B1 rating assigned to LA Fitness' proposed senior secured bank
facility is one notch above the company's CFR. This reflects the
significant amount of lease rejection claims ranked below the
secured debt in the capital structure. The B3-PD Probability of
Default Rating reflects an above average 65% family recovery rate
utilized given the all bank debt capital structure, that the
revolver and term loans are secured by substantially all of the
company's assets, and the presence of financial maintenance
covenants.

Rating improvement would require LA Fitness to generate profitably
positive comparable store sales growth, reduce and sustain
debt/EBITDA below 5.0 times and maintain a good liquidity profile.
LA Fitness' ratings could be downgraded if the company is unable
to turn around negative comparable store sales trends, leading to
debt/EBITDA sustained above 6.0 times, EBITDA less capex coverage
of interest expense below 1.25 times (excluding discretionary
spending), or a material weakening of liquidity.

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

Fitness International, LLC (LA Fitness) is the largest non-
franchised fitness club operator in the United States. As of March
31, 2014, the company operated 625 fitness clubs in 29 states
across the US, including 16 clubs in Ontario. Collectively, these
clubs served approximately 3.8 million members with revenues of
about $1.7 billion for the LTM period ended March 31, 2014.


FLEXTRONICS INT'L: S&P Affirms 'BB+' CCR & Revises Outlook to Pos.
------------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it affirmed its 'BB+'
corporate credit rating on Singapore-based Flextronics
International Ltd.  S&P also revised its outlook to positive from
stable.

At the same time, S&P affirmed its 'BB+' issue ratings and '3'
recovery ratings on the company's unsecured debt issues.

"The outlook revision to positive from stable reflects our
expectation that Flextronics' ongoing and strategic revenue mix
shift will generate moderate profitability improvement and greater
operating performance predictability over the near-to-intermediate
term," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Martha Toll-Reed.

In addition, S&P expects good cash flow will support a consistent
financial risk profile, despite the potential for near-term
revenue volatility.  S&P's ratings reflect Flextronics' "fair"
business risk profile, "intermediate" financial risk profile, and
S&P's revision of the company's liquidity profile to "strong" from
"adequate."  In addition, S&P views the industry risk as
"moderately high" and the country risk as "low."

The positive outlook reflects S&P's expectation that Flextronics'
strategic shift to more profitable and less volatile industry
segments will generate moderate EBITDA margin improvement, and
more consistent and predictable operating performance over the
near-to-intermediate term.  The outlook also reflects S&P's
expectation that Flextronics will maintain its intermediate
financial risk profile and moderate financial policies.

S&P could raise its ratings in the next 12 months if Flextronics
continues to improve the balance and profitability of its revenue
mix, with an increasingly diverse customer and end-market
presence.

S&P could revise our outlook to stable if Flextronics does not
generate relatively stable annual EBITDA levels and a more
balanced and profitable revenue mix over the rating horizon.


FLUX POWER: Converts Esenjay Debt Into Common Shares
----------------------------------------------------
Flux Power Holdings, Inc., on June 11, 2014, entered into a Loan
Conversion Agreement with Esenjay Investments LLC, the Company's
major stockholder and principal credit line holder, pursuant to
which the Company agreed to issue:

   (1) 12,100,000 shares of the Company's common stock (based on
       $0.24 per share); and

   (2) a warrant to purchase up to 1,900,000 shares of the
       Company's common stock for a term of 3 years at an exercise
       price of $0.30 per share to Esenjay, in exchange for the
       cancellation of a total principal amount of $2,586,000
       outstanding under the Secondary Revolving Promissory Note,
       the Bridge Loan Promissory Note and the Unrestricted Line
       of Credit, with Esenjay, plus $304,070 in accrued interest
       on such Principal Amount as of June 4, 2014.

Under the Conversion Agreement, Esenjay agreed to waive any
interests accrued on the Principal Amount after June 4, 2014, and
agreed to accept the Shares and Warrant as payment of Debt in
complete and full satisfaction.

Michael Johnson, the Company's director, is a director and
shareholder of Esenjay.

                          About Flux Power

Escondido, California-based Flux Power Holdings, Inc., designs,
develops and sells rechargeable advanced energy storage systems.

Flux Power posted net income of $351,000 on $772,000 of net
revenue for the year ended June 30, 2013, as compared with a net
loss of $2.38 million on $5.93 million of net revenue during the
prior year.

Squar, Milner, Peterson, Miranda & Williamson, LLP, in San Diego,
California, issued a "going concern" qualification on the
consolidated financial statements for the year ended June 30,
2013.  The independent auditors noted that the Company has
incurred a significant accumulated deficit through June 30, 2013,
and requires immediate additional financing to sustain its
operations.  These factors, among others, raise substantial doubt
about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern.

The Company's balance sheet at March 31, 2014, showed $1.45
million in total assets, $4.30 million in total liabilities and a
$2.85 million total stockholders' deficit.

                         Bankruptcy Warning

"If we are unable to increase sales of our products or obtain
additional funding in the near future, our cash resources will
rapidly be depleted and we may be required to further materially
reduce or suspend operations, which would likely have a material
adverse effect on our business, stock price and our relationships
with third parties with whom we have business relationships, at
least until additional funding is obtained.  If we do not have
sufficient funds to continue operations, we could be required to
liquidate our assets, seek bankruptcy protection or other
alternatives that would likely result in our receiving less than
the value at which those assets are carried on our financial
statements, and it is likely that investors will lose all or some
of their investment in us," the Company stated in the quaterly
report for the period ended March 31, 2014.


FOREST LABORATORIES: S&P Puts 'BB+' Rating on CreditWatch Positive
------------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services placed its 'BB+' issue-level
ratings on Forest Laboratories Inc.'s unsecured notes on
CreditWatch with positive implications.  Actavis PLC is purchasing
Forest Laboratories Inc. and will provide a guarantee of Forest
Laboratories' $3 billion of unsecured notes.  The CreditWatch
placement reflects the likelihood that S&P will equalize Forest
Laboratories' senior unsecured issue-level ratings with Actavis'
senior unsecured issue-level ratings after this acquisition
closes.  The 'BB+' corporate credit rating is unchanged and the
outlook is stable.

GENEX HOLDINGS: Moody's Assigns 'B3' CFR Following Buyout
---------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has assigned a B3 corporate family
rating and a B3-PD probability of default rating to Genex
Holdings, Inc. ("GENEX"). Moody's has also assigned ratings to the
credit facilities issued to help fund the June 2014 leveraged
buyout of the company by funds advised by Apax Partners for $453
million. The rating outlook is stable.

Ratings Rationale

GENEX's ratings reflect the company's strong market position in
workers' compensation case management services, national network
of nurses and case managers, stable revenues, and healthy free
cash flow. The managed care business provides GENEX with
consistent fee-based revenue based on multi-year contracts with
its customers. These strengths are offset by aggressive financial
leverage and limited fixed charge coverage following the buyout
and relatively high concentration of revenue tied to claims volume
in the workers' compensation insurance market.

"GENEX's ratings reflect its very good cash flow as well as its
stable revenues and earnings from its national presence and
expertise in workers' compensation managed care services," said
Enrico Leo, Moody's lead analyst for GENEX. "While financial
leverage is elevated following the buyout, Moody's expect EBITDA
margins to remain in low double digits with credit metrics
improving over the next 12-18 months."

The financing arrangement includes a $190 million first-lien term
loan and a $30 million first-lien revolving credit facility
(undrawn at closing), both rated B1, and a $90 million second-lien
term loan, rated Caa2. Other funding sources include proceeds from
the sale of GENEX's physical therapy and medical diagnostics
business to One Call Care Management and sponsor-contributed and
management rollover equity. Proceeds were used to purchase all of
GENEX's outstanding common stock, repay its existing debt and to
pay related fees and expenses.

Moody's also withdrew GENEX's existing ratings including: B2
corporate family rating, B2-PD probability of default rating, as
well as the B1 first-lien and Caa1 second-lien ratings, as the
credit facilities were repaid and terminated.

Factors that could lead to an upgrade of GENEX's ratings include:
(i) debt-to-EBITDA ratio below 6x, (ii) (EBITDA - capex) coverage
of interest exceeding 2x, and (iii) free-cash-flow-to-debt ratio
greater than 4%.

Factors that could lead to a rating downgrade include: (i) debt-
to-EBITDA ratio above 8x on a sustained basis, (ii) (EBITDA -
capex) coverage of interest less than 1.2x, and (iii) free-cash-
flow-to-debt ratio below 2%.

Moody's has assigned the following ratings (and loss given default
(LGD) assessments):

  Corporate family rating B3;

  Probability of default rating B3-PD;

  $30 million first-lien revolving credit facility B1
  (LGD3, 32%);

  $190 million first-lien term loan B1 (LGD3, 32%);

  $90 million second lien term loan Caa2 (LGD5, 84%).

The principal methodology used in this rating was Moody's Global
Rating Methodology for Insurance Brokers and Service Companies
published in February 2012. Other methodologies used include Loss
Given Default for Speculative-Grade Non-Financial Companies in the
U.S., Canada and EMEA published in June 2009.

Based in Wayne, PA, GENEX is a leading provider of managed care
services nationally. In addition to its case management services,
GENEX provides medical cost containment and related services.
GENEX generated total revenues of $396 million in 2013 based on
consolidated GAAP financial statements.


GLOBAL GEOPHYSICAL: Officers and Directors Look to Tap Insurance
----------------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that Global Geophysical Services Inc.'s current and former
officers and directors want the bankruptcy judge to give them
access to the directors' and officers' insurance to pay their
expenses in defending lawsuits and an investigation by the
Securities and Exchange Commission.

According to the report, citing court papers, the provider of
seismic data for the oil and gas drilling industry has $25 million
in D&O policies.  Executives of the Missouri City, Texas-based
company said that the insurer with the primary policy has agreed
to advance defense costs and that Global doesn't object to their
request, the report related.

The $200 million in 10.5 percent senior unsecured notes traded at
10:59 a.m. on June 11 for 41.5 cents on the dollar, the Bloomberg
report said, citing Trace, the bond-price reporting system of the
Financial Industry Regulatory Authority. The notes are down from
their post-bankruptcy high of 63.5 cents on April 2, the report
related.

             About Global Geophysical, Autoseis et al.

Global Geophysical Services Inc., a provider of seismic data for
the oil and gas drilling industry, sought bankruptcy protection,
intending to reorganize on its own with additional capital or
explore a sale or other transaction.

Based in Missouri City, Texas, Global Geophysical disclosed assets
of $468.7 million and liabilities totaling $407.3 million as of
Sept. 30, 2013.  Liabilities include $81.8 million on a secured
term loan owing to TPG Specialty Lending Inc. and Tennenbaum
Capital Partners LLC.  TPG is the lenders' agent.  Global also
owes $250 million on two issues of 10.5 percent senior unsecured
notes, with Bank of New York Mellon Trust Co. as indenture
trustee.

Global Geophysical and five affiliates, including Autoseis, Inc.
(lead debtor), filed Chapter 11 petitions in Corpus Christi, Texas
(Bankr. S.D. Tex. Lead Case No. 14-20130) on March 25, 2014.

The Debtors have tapped Luckey McDowell, Esq., at Baker Botts
L.L.P., as general bankruptcy counsel, and Shelby A. Jordan, Esq.,
at Jordan, Hyden, Womble, Culbreth & Holzer, P.C., as local
counsel.  Alvarez & Marsal serves as restructuring advisors, Fox
Rothschild Inc. as financial advisor, and Prime Clerk as claims
and noticing agent.

Judy A. Robbins, the U.S. Trustee for Region 7, has selected seven
creditors to the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors.


GLOBAL PARTNERS: Moody's Rates $375MM Senior Unsecured Notes 'B2'
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned first time ratings to Global
Partners LP, including a B1 Corporate Family Rating (CFR) and a B2
rating to its proposed offering of $375 million of senior
unsecured notes due 2022, co-issued by GLP finance Corp. Moody's
also assigned a SGL-3 Speculative Grade Liquidity rating to
Global. The proceeds from the proposed notes offering will be used
to repay revolver drawings and repay its existing senior unsecured
notes. The rating outlook is stable.

Rating Assignments:

$375 Million Senior Unsecured Notes due in 2022, Rated B2
(LGD 5, 75%)

Corporate Family Rating of B1

Probability of Default Rating of B1-PD

Speculative Grade Liquidity rating of SGL-3

"Global's ratings benefits from the management team's long
operating history in distribution of refined products in the US
Northeast, which helps to offset some of the risks inherent in
both its business distribution and master limited partnership
corporate finance model," commented Gretchen French, Moody's Vice
President.

Ratings Rationale

Global's B1 CFR is supported by the company's track record and
seasoned management team, both as a MLP and prior to going public
as a family owned business with several decades of operating
experience in refined product distribution. The B1 rating is
further supported by Global's strong market presence in the
Northeast US and the relatively more stable income and low working
capital needs associated with its retail gasoline supply and
station operations businesses. The rating also reflects the
company's relatively conservative management of distributions to
limited partners, and the low entry costs and the funding of its
growth into crude oil distribution and logistics with a meaningful
amount of retained cash flow.

The B1 CFR is restrained by Global's exposure to characteristics
typical in the distribution business: low margins, exposure to
volatile commodity prices and working capital intensity, which
results in highly elevated debt balances during periods of high
commodity prices and losses on working inventory levels with the
commodity markets are in backwardation. The rating also considers
the company's material geographic concentration in the mature
Northeast US and the risks associated with the company's MLP
corporate finance model.

The B2 rating on the proposed senior unsecured notes reflects both
the overall probability of default of the company, to which
Moody's assigns a Probability of Default Rating of B1-PD, and a
loss given default of (LGD 5, 75%). The proposed notes will be
guaranteed by substantially all of Global's operating
subsidiaries, except for Basin Transload LLC. The notes are rated
one notch below the B1 CFR, reflecting the contractual
subordination and smaller size of the notes relative to the
company's secured bank credit facility, which is secured by
substantially all the assets of the firm. Moody's have utilized a
one-notch override of our LGD methodology in determining the
rating on the notes. Moody's believe that Global's fixed assets,
based on third-party appraisals above book value, provide some
additional value to the note holders, as the lion's share of
secured debt borrowings are supported by highly liquid inventories
and receivables.

Global's SGL-3 Speculative Grade Liquidity rating indicates an
adequate liquidity profile, reflecting its MLP corporate finance
model and high working capital needs of its wholesale distribution
businesses. The company's liquidity profile faces the risk of
substantial working capital needs over a relatively short time
frame as a result of the size and speed at which commodity prices
can change. Global has a $1.625 billion credit agreement that
matures on April 30, 2018. There are two facilities under the
agreement: a $1 billion working capital and letter of credit
revolver subject to a borrowing base calculation and a $625
million revolver for acquisitions and general corporate purposes.
Moody's believe that Global's working capital revolver is
adequately sized to meet its near term liquidity needs. The credit
agreement contains several financial covenants, including a
maintenance of minimum working capital levels, minimum interest
coverage ratio, maximum senior secured leverage ratio, and maximum
total leverage ratio. Moody's expect Global to maintain good
covenant compliance through 2015.

The stable rating outlook reflects Moody's view that management
will continue to prudently manage its liquidity profile and
commodity price exposure and will fund material capital projects
or acquisitions with either a meaningful equity or retained cash
flow funding component.

A rating upgrade is possible if Global demonstrates that it can
consistently maintain debt/EBITDA below 4x while successfully
executing on its growth strategy. In addition, meaningful growth
into more durable, fee-based businesses could also support a
positive rating action.

The rating could be downgraded if Global experiences a
deterioration in liquidity, if it's margins faced compression for
an extended period of time or a primarily debt financed
acquisition increases financial leverage on a sustained basis
above 6x debt/EBITDA.

The principal methodology used in this rating was the Global
Midstream Energy published in December 2010. Other methodologies
used include Loss Given Default for Speculative-Grade Non-
Financial Companies in the U.S., Canada and EMEA published in June
2009.

Global Partners LP is a master limited partnership headquartered
in Waltham, Massachusetts.


GLOBAL PARTNERS: S&P Assigns 'B+' CCR; Outlook Stable
-----------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it assigned its 'B+' long-
term corporate credit rating to Global Partners L.P., a master
limited partnership (MLP) focused in the midstream energy sector.
The outlook is stable.  At the same time, Standard & Poor's
assigned its 'B+' issue-level rating and '4' recovery rating to
Global's proposed $375 million senior unsecured notes due 2022,
indicating that unsecured creditors can expect average (30%-50%)
recovery in the event of a default.  S&P also assigned a 'BB'
issue-level rating and a '1' recovery rating to the partnership's
existing $1.6 billion revolving credit facility, indicating that
creditors can expect very high (90%-100%) recovery.

The ratings on Global reflect S&P's view of a "weak" business risk
and "aggressive" financial risk profile.  "We believe key factors
for the business risk include the partnership's highly
competitive, operationally intensive, low-profit-margin refined
product marketing business, which the relative cash flow stability
of its retail gasoline stations partially offsets," said Standard
& Poor's credit analyst Nora Pickens.  "The aggressive financial
risk profile incorporates our assessment of Global's substantial
working capital needs and the MLP structure, which gives the
partnership incentive to distribute to unitholders quarterly
substantially all free cash flow after maintenance capital
expenditures," Ms. Pickens added.

Although small, S&P views Global's operating profit to be
generally stable.  The partnership does not have a meaningful
number of long-term customer contracts, but it plays a critical
role in distributing petroleum products in the U.S. Northeast.
Global can still face the risk of volume declines, particularly if
winter weather turns mild and affects heating oil demand, or if
gasoline and diesel prices soar, causing demand destruction.  Even
so, S&P believes the partnership has performed well through
periods of challenging commodity conditions.  Global benefits from
its long-standing relationships in the Northeast with its
suppliers and customers which, in S&P's view, provides the
business with a competitive advantage.

The partnership's cash flow comes primarily from its Wholesale
(45% of estimated 2014 gross margin) and Gasoline Distribution and
Station Operation (50%) segments.  The Wholesale segment engages
in the terminaling and marketing of crude and refined petroleum
products, primarily gasoline and distillates (heating oil,
kerosene, diesel).  Although Global maintains an established
foothold in the Northeast, with 20 owned or leased terminals and
10 million barrels of storage capacity, it remains a small player
compared with industry peers.  The terminaling business is
logistically complex and requires active management of daily
operations.  The partnership generates profits by purchasing
refined petroleum products; holding them in storage for a short
period; and selling them, usually for 3 to 5 cents per gallon,
making a small margin above cost.  This segment also houses Basin
Transload LLC (a 60% interest), two rail loading facilities in
North Dakota with a combined capacity of 160,000 barrels per day,
and an Oregon-based biorefinery and transloading complex.  These
assets add a modest level of geographic diversity in addition to
cash flow stability achieved through a five-year take or pay
agreement with Phillips 66.  The two assets create a virtual
pipeline and allow Global's customers to ship product east (to the
Albany facility) or west in four-to-five days, which is generally
faster than peers.  S&P expects the partnership to pursue growth
projects, such as its recently announced interconnect with
Tesoro's High Plains Pipeline and Summit Midstream's Meadowlark
gathering system, that focus on improving sourcing and delivery
options to its North Dakota assets.

The stable outlook reflects S&P's view that Global will continue
to generate thin profits without taking commodity price risk,
manage its large working capital needs appropriately, maintain
EBITDA to interest above 3.0x, and maintain and debt-to-EBITDA
(including working capital borrowings) of 4.5x-5.0x.  An upgrade
is possible if the partnership improves its asset and geographic
diversity while maintaining EBITDA-to-interest coverage above 4.0x
and debt-to-EBITDA (including working capital borrowings) of less
than 4.5x.  S&P could lower the ratings in the next two years if
Global has difficulties in managing its working capital
requirements, faces unexpected operating difficulties, or makes a
large acquisition that weakens the financial risk profile such
that its EBITDA interest ratio falls below 2.5x and debt-to-EBITDA
rises above 5.0x.


GORDON PROPERTIES: Wants to Sell Restaurant Unit to MFR for $3MM
----------------------------------------------------------------
Gordon Properties, LLC, seeks the Bankruptcy Court's permission to
sell a pad-site commercial condominium unit occupied by Mango
Mike's Restaurant -- more specifically identified as Unit 001, at
the Forty Six Hundred Condominium, located at 4580 Duke Street,
Alexandria, Virginia.

The Debtor entered into a sale agreement for the sale of the
Property to MFR Investments, Inc. for $3,000,000.

A $50,000 initial deposit will be paid within three days of the
Bankruptcy Court approval of the sale and an additional $100,000
deposit will be paid within three says of expiration of the
Inspection Period.

The Inspection Period is 90 days following the Bankruptcy Court
approval, subject to a 30-day extension.  During this period, the
Buyer may cancel the Agreement for any reason or no reason and
receive a full refund of any deposits.

The First Owners' Association (FOA) of Forty Six Hundred
Condominium, Inc. has claims and liens related to the Property and
they are subject to a bona fide dispute.  Pursuant to the Debtor's
proposed Plan of Reorganization, in the event the Debtor proposes
to sell any of its assets, it will deposit into escrow an amount
of sale proceeds necessary to ensure payment of the FOA Claim.

                       Owners' Group Reacts

Indeed, the First Owners' Association (FOA) of Forty Six Hundred
Condominium, Inc. filed papers with the Court, urging the Court to
direct the Debtor to deposit sale proceeds in the amount of
$1,000,000 into the Debtor's escrow account to ensure payment of
FOA's Claim plus attorney's fees and FOA's judgment against
Condominium Services, Inc. pending entry of final, non-appealable
orders.

The FOA is represented by John T. Donelan, Esq., of 125 South
Royal Street, Alexandria, Virginia 22314.

The association filed a proof of claim asserting a claim of
$453,533.12.  A second proof of claim was filed by the Internal
Revenue Service for $1,955.45.  According to its schedules, if
both claims are allowed, it has a net deficit of about $426,900.
CSI is wholly owned by Gordon Properties.

to substantively consolidate the chapter 11 bankruptcy cases of
Gordon Properties and Condominium Services, Inc., the condominium
management company.

Gordon Properties and CSI opposed the motion.  The two cases were
previously administratively consolidated.


GSE ENVIRONMENTAL: Case Back on Track After Key Creditor Deal
-------------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that GSE Environmental Inc., the Houston-based producer of
liners for environmental and waste management containment, will
soon be soliciting votes on its Chapter 11 reorganization plan
after settling with the creditors' committee and holders of first-
lien notes.  According to the report, the creditors' committee
withdrew its request to slow down the hearing on approval of
disclosure materials in exchange for modifications to the plan
that benefit its constituents.

BankruptcyData reported that GSE Environmental filed with the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court an Amended Chapter 11 Plan of Reorganization and
related Disclosure Statement, which provides that the Plan
contemplates a substantial reduction in the Debtors' funded debt
obligations by satisfying the approximately $173.4 million of
principal obligations under the First Lien Credit Facility with
New Equity.  The Plan also (a) provides for payment in full of
claims of all of the Debtors' trade creditors that agree (i) to
return to trade terms no less advantageous to the Debtors than
those in place twelve months before the Petition Date and (ii) to
maintain those trade terms for twelve months after the Effective
Date (provided that the Debtors meet their obligations with
respect to any such terms), and (b) provides for an amount of Cash
for other General Unsecured Claims, which the Debtors believe
should be sufficient to either pay in full or pay a substantial
percentage distribution on such claims, provided that no
unanticipated Claims exist and are allowed and further provided
that all trade creditors make the election or execute a Qualified
Vendor Support Agreement...in order to be included in Class 4
Qualified Unsecured Trade Claims.

HELLER EHRMAN: Ruling Challenges Claims by Failed Law Firms
-----------------------------------------------------------
Jennifer Smith, writing for The Wall Street Journal, reported that
in a decision likely to influence future litigation over failed
law firms, U.S. District Judge Charles Breyer in San Francisco
ruled that the defunct Heller Ehrman LLP has no right to profits
from unfinished legal work its ex-partners brought to their new
firms.

According to the report, Judge Breyer rejected the theory behind
those claims -- which bankruptcy trustees have used to recover
millions on behalf of creditors left in the lurch when law firms
fail -- and dismissed the Heller trustee's lawsuits against law
firms Davis Wright Tremaine LLP, Jones Day, Foley & Lardner LLP
and Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP.

The decision, according to the Journal, could bolster arguments
made by big law firms that hired partners from bankrupt rivals,
then pushed back against claims for the profits from legal work
that originated at the failed firms.  Forcing partners' new
employers to pay the money back to a failed firm's creditors, they
say, unfairly restricts lawyers' mobility and clients' right to
hire whatever lawyers they please, the Journal said.

                        About Heller Ehrman

Headquartered in San Francisco, California, Heller Ehrman, LLP
-- http://www.hewm.com/-- was an international law firm of more
than 730 attorneys in 15 offices in the United States, Europe, and
Asia.  Heller Ehrman filed a voluntary Chapter 11 petition (Bankr.
N.D. Cal., Case No. 08-32514) on Dec. 28, 2008.  Members of the
firm's dissolution committee led by Peter J. Benvenutti approved a
plan dated Sept. 26, 2008, to dissolve the firm.  The Hon. Dennis
Montali presides over the case.  Pachulski Stang Ziehl & Jones LLP
assisted the Debtor in its restructuring effort.  The Official
Committee of Unsecured Creditors is represented by Felderstein
Fitzgerald Willoughby & Pascuzzi LLP.  The firm estimated assets
and debts at $50 million to $100 million as of the Petition Date.
According to reports, the firm had roughly $63 million in assets
and 54 employees at the time of its filing.  On Aug. 13, 2010, the
Court confirmed Heller's Joint Plan of Liquidation.


HIGH MAINTENANCE: Delays Confirmation Hearing to July 30
--------------------------------------------------------
High Maintenance Broadcasting LLC and its affiliates asked the
Bankruptcy Court continuing the confirmation hearing from June 13,
2014, and resetting it on July 30, 2014, at 9:00 a.m.

The Debtors say they cannot confirm the Plan without the
noteholders' supporting votes.  Given the possibility that the
noteholders' plan objection may be resolved in the course of the
claim litigation, the Debtors decided to delay the confirmation
hearing until after the claim objection trial in order to
facilitate a consensual resolution of their dispute with the
Noteholders or, if necessary, to enforce the terms of the mediated
term sheet  (MTS).

At a mediation held in Dallas, Texas, on Oct. 24, 2013, the
Debtors, their largest creditors, and the Debtors' equity owners
agreed to an MTS that set forth the framework for a consensual
joint plan of reorganization.  The MTS obligates the parties to
the MTS to support a joint plan of reorganization proposed by the
Debtors provided that it is consistent with the terms of the MTS.

On Jan. 6, 2014, the Debtors filed a Disclosure Statement and
Joint Plan of Reorganization that the Debtors believe is
consistent with the terms of the MTS.  Among other things, the
Plan provides for the substantive consolidation of the Debtors'
estates for the purposes of distributions under the Plan, which
the Debtors believe is required under the MTS.

On Feb. 13, 2014, the noteholders filed a limited objection to the
Plan asserting that the Debtors should not be substantively
consolidated.  In general, the noteholders disagree that the MTS
requires substantive consolidation and believe that consolidation
would be unfair to creditors.  Thus, while the parties continue to
agree on the substantive terms of the Plan, they currently
disagree on the means of implementation.

In addition, the noteholders have filed an objection to the claim
of Fred Hoffmann, an insider and creditor of the Debtors.  The
noteholders' objection to Mr. Hoffinann's was set for hearing on
June 9, 2014.  However, the Court recently continued the hearing
to July 1-2, 2014.  The Noteholders have indicated that they may
withdraw their objection to the Plan if their objection to Mr.
Hoffmann's claim is resolved in their favor.

HIGH MAINTENANCE: Wants 30 More Days of Plan Exclusivity
--------------------------------------------------------
High Maintenance Broadcasting LLC and its affiliates ask the
Bankruptcy Court to extend the exclusive period to solicit
acceptances of their Chapter 11 plan until Aug. 13, 2014.

Absent an extension, the Debtors' exclusive period to confirm a
plan of reorganization under Section 1121(c)(3) of the Bankruptcy
Code expires on July 13, 2014.  Because the Debtors have sought an
approximately 30-day continuance of the confirmation hearing, the
Debtors seek a corresponding 30-day extension of this exclusivity
period.

Until receiving the Noteholders' objection, the Debtors were on
track to confirm their Plan on a consensual basis well within the
exclusivity period.  However, the unexpected disagreement
regarding the MTS and the means of implementation of the Plan has
delayed an otherwise consensual confirmation.  Accordingly, the
Debtors seek a brief extension of the exclusivity period in order
to address the issues raised by the Noteholders' objection, to
resolve the parties' disagreement over the implementation of the
Plan, and to confirm the Plan on a consensual basis if possible.

HILTON WORLDWIDE: S&P Revises Outlook to Pos. & Affirms 'BB-' CCR
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services revised its rating outlook on
Hilton Worldwide Holdings Inc. to positive from stable.  The 'BB-'
corporate credit rating on the company was affirmed.

At the same time, S&P revised its recovery rating on Hilton
Worldwide Finance LLC's senior secured credit facilities to '1'
(90% to 100% recovery expectation) from '2' (70% to 90% recovery
expectation) and raised its issue-level rating on these loans to
'BB+' from 'BB', in accordance with S&P's notching criteria.

In addition, S&P affirmed its 'B' issue-level rating on the
company's senior notes.  The recovery rating on the debt remains
'6' (0%-10% recovery expectation).

The revised senior secured recovery rating reflects a lower amount
of secured debt outstanding under S&P's simulated default scenario
as a result of voluntary prepayments of the term loan and S&P's
assumption that the company will repay debt maturing over the 2014
to 2017 period with internal cash flow or borrowings under the
revolver.  This results in improved recovery prospects for the
credit facilities, enough to warrant a recovery rating of '1'.

The outlook revision to positive reflects our belief that over the
near term, Hilton could improve total adjusted debt to EBITDA to
below 6x.  Once S&P is confident Hilton can sustain this measure
of leverage below 6x over the lodging cycle, it could raise the
rating one notch.  S&P expects good revenue per available room
(RevPAR) growth and operating performance at Hilton through 2015,
and for Hilton to continue to reduce its high leverage over time
using free cash flow for debt repayment.  In addition, Hilton has
outperformed S&P's operating and credit measure expectations the
past few quarters, primarily because of an improving EBITDA
margin, and S&P has updated its forecast through 2015 to reflect
good RevPAR performance and higher-than-anticipated debt
repayment.  In the first-quarter 2014, Hilton increased EBITDA 19%
through strong group bookings, positive operating leverage from
average daily rate (ADR) representing the majority of RevPAR
growth, and expense control.  In the 12 months ended March 2014,
Hilton improved S&P's measure of its reported EBITDA margin
(including share-based compensation but not including FF&E
reserves, Hilton's pro rata share of joint venture EBITDA, legal
and restructuring expenses, or minority interests) nearly 300
basis points to about 32%.  Total adjusted debt to EBITDA improved
to the low-6x area as of March 2014, representing about a one-half
turn lower level of leverage than S&P had anticipated.

S&P could lower ratings one notch in the event that Hilton's
operating performance significantly underperforms its expectations
and its total adjusted debt-to-EBITDA ratio remains above 7x.
While unlikely through 2015, this could occur following an
unexpected global economic downturn that meaningfully impairs
RevPAR and EBITDA.

INTERNET BRANDS: Moody's Rates New $195MM 2nd Lien Debt 'Caa1'
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has assigned a B1 rating to Internet
Brands, Inc.'s proposed senior secured first-lien debt facility
($435 million first-lien term loan due 2021, $50 million delayed
draw first-lien term loan due 2021 and $75 million revolving
credit facility due 2019) and Caa1 rating to the new $195 million
second-lien term loan facility maturing 2022. In connection with
this rating action, Moody's lowered Internet Brands' Corporate
Family Rating (CFR) to B2 from B1 and affirmed the Probability of
Default Rating (PDR) at B2-PD. The rating outlook is stable.

Proceeds from the new credit facilities plus $554 million of
equity (including approximately $40 million of management rollover
equity) will be used to finance the leveraged buyout (LBO) of
Internet Brands by private equity firm Kohlberg Kravis Roberts &
Co. L.P. ("KKR" or the "equity sponsor") from Hellman & Friedman
("H&F") for a total purchase price of approximately $1.125 billion
(net of balance sheet cash and excluding transaction fees and
expenses, estimated to total about $50 million). The new credit
facilities will replace the existing debt capital structure ($324
million outstanding term loan B and $50 million revolver) and fund
at closing. However, the delayed draw first-lien term loan is
scheduled to fund after closing to coincide with planned
acquisitions.

Two parent holding companies named Micro Holding Corp. and MH Sub
I, LLC will be co-issuers of the new credit facilities and will be
jointly and severally liable for the debt obligations. Internet
Brands is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Micro Holding Corp. and
together with MH Sub I, LLC will hold the operating assets of the
company. Internet Brands will provide an upstream guarantee of the
credit facilities while the direct parent and certain indirect
parent entities of Micro Holding Corp. and MH Sub I, LLC will
provide downstream guarantees.

  Corporate Family Rating to B2 from B1

Ratings Affirmed:

Issuer: Internet Brands, Inc.

  Probability of Default Rating at B2-PD

For companies whose debts are sourced from two different lender
classes, Moody's generally assumes a mean family recovery rate of
50% under the Loss Given Default (LGD) Methodology, which results
in the affirmation of the PDR at B2-PD following the downgrade of
the CFR to B2. The assigned ratings are subject to review of final
documentation and no material change in the size, terms and
conditions of the transaction as advised to Moody's. Moody's will
withdraw the B1 ratings and LGD assessments on the existing credit
facilities upon their full repayment and extinguishment.

aggregate principal amount of the Company's 4.00% senior notes due
2017; and (ii) $770 million aggregate principal amount of the
Company's 5.00% senior notes due 2019.

The Notes were issued pursuant to a base indenture, dated as of

2014, between the Company and U.S. Bank National Association, and
a supplemental indenture with respect to the 2019 Notes, dated as
of June 13, 2014, between the Company and the Trustee.  The Notes
are unsecured, senior obligations of the Company and rank equally
in right of payment with all of the Company's existing and future
unsecured, unsubordinated indebtedness.

The Notes were issued at 100% of their principal amounts.  The
2017 Notes bear interest at an annual rate of 4.00% and mature on
Nov. 1, 2017.  The 2019 Notes bear interest at an annual rate of
5.00% and mature on July 1, 2019.  The Company will pay interest
on the 2017 Notes on each May 1 and November 1, commencing on
Nov. 1, 2014.  The Company will pay interest on the 2019 Notes on

and from time to time at a price equal to 100% of the principal
amount thereof, plus the applicable "make-whole" premium and
accrued but unpaid interest, if any, to, but excluding, the date
of redemption.  If the 2017 Notes are redeemed on or after Aug. 1,
2017, the redemption price will not include the "make-whole"
premium.  In addition, prior to Aug. 1, 2017, the Company may
redeem up to 35% of the 2017 Notes using the proceeds of certain
equity offerings at a redemption price equal to 104.00% of the
principal amount of the Notes redeemed plus accrued but unpaid
interest, if any, to, but excluding, the date of redemption.

JAMES RIVER: Up to $2.7 Million in Executive Bonuses Approved
-------------------------------------------------------------
Joseph Checkler, writing for The Wall Street Journal, reported
that a judge said James River Coal Co. can pay up to $2.7 million
in bonuses to its top executives, rejecting a challenge to the
payments by the federal government's bankruptcy watchdog.

According to the report, Judge Kevin R. Huennekens of the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court in Richmond, Va., said that James River could pay
the bonuses to nine top executives and approved a separate set of
bonuses for 39 non-executives, with that pool totaling up to $1.4
million.  U.S. Trustee Judy A. Robbins objected to the executive
bonus plan because Mr. Huennekens said details of the bonuses
could be filed confidentially with the court for competitive
reasons, the report related.

JAMES RIVER: Bonus Plans Face U.S. Trustee Opposition
-----------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that the U.S. Trustee opposed James River Coal Co.'s
proposed bonus payments totaling close to $5 million to a nine-
member group of senior managers, mine operations heads and 39
lower-level employees, complaining that approval to pay the
bonuses less than two months into the Chapter 11 case is
"premature" and should be delayed to allow parties time to
evaluate the propriety of the proposed bonuses.

According to the report, the U.S. Trustee also opposes the
company's request to file critical information under seal,
including the identities of participants, bonus amounts and the
benchmarks that James River Coal must achieve to trigger the
bonuses.

The $47.3 million in 4.5 percent senior unsecured convertible
notes due in 2015 last traded on June 2 for 8 cents on the dollar,
up from 4.25 cents on May 9, the report said, citing Trace, the
bond-price reporting system of the Financial Industry Regulatory
Authority.  The $270 million in 7.875 percent senior unsecured
notes due in 2019 sold for 12.72 cents on the dollar on June 3, up
from 9.65 cents on May 28, according to Trace, the report further

JAZZ ACQUISITION: Moody's Assigns 'B3' Corporate Family Rating
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a B3 Corporate Family Rating
(CFR) and B3-PD Probability of Default to Jazz Acquisition, Inc.
("Wencor"). Concurrently, Moody's assigned the following
instrument ratings: B2 to the company's proposed $65 million
senior secured, first lien revolving credit facility; B2 to the
$320 million senior secured, first lien term loan; and Caa2 to the
proposed $155 million second lien term loan. Proceeds from the
offering, along with a $420 million sponsor equity contribution
will be used to fund the acquisition of Wencor for approximately
$860 million. The rating outlook is stable.

Assignments:

Issuer: Jazz Acquisition, Inc.

  Corporate Family Rating, assigned B3

  Probability of Default, assigned B3-PD

  $65 million first lien revolving credit facility due 2019,
  assigned B2-LGD3, 35%

  $320 million first lien term loan due 2021, assigned B2-LGD3,
  35%

  $155 million second lien term loan due 2022, assigned Caa2-
  LGD5, 86%

Rating outlook: stable

Ratings Rationale

The B3 (CFR) reflects Wencor's high degree of financial leverage,
the asset-lite nature of the business, and small scale. Moody's
notes the implementation of aggressive financial policies
following the acquisition of Wencor by Warburg Pincus, with pro
forma leverage expected to approach 7.5x on a Moody's adjusted
basis which places leverage at the lower end of the rating
category and constrains financial flexibility.

The rating favorably reflects Moody's view that Wencor appears to
be well positioned to benefit from continued growth in the
aerospace aftermarket with particular opportunities for further
penetration of its parts manufacturer approval (PMA) and repair
segments. The rating also incorporates the company's exclusive
focus on the relatively stable aerospace aftermarket which is
supported by the recurring and non-discretionary nature of
spending by its airline and maintenance repair and overhaul (MRO)
customers. Moody's also notes the good diversity by customer, the
long-term nature of agreements covering a meaningful portion of
its sales, and the complementary nature of Wencor's PMA, repair
and distribution operations.

The stable outlook reflects Moody's expectation that favorable
industry fundamentals, coupled with Wencor's focus on the more
stable aftermarket, will remain supportive of top line and
earnings growth. This should result in a gradual deleveraging and
improvement in Wencor's credit metrics.

Liquidity is good with Moody's expecting steady free cash flow
supported by relatively high margins and modest capital
expenditure requirements. The $65 million revolving credit
facility is expected to remain undrawn upon close and is
anticipated to contain a springing senior secured first lien net
leverage ratio which only comes into effect if usage on the
facility exceeds 30%. Moody's does not expect usage of the
facility to trigger this 30% threshold. Moreover, the rating
agency anticipates that Wencor will have considerable headroom
under the leverage covenant even if this covenant becomes
effective. Wencor's liquidity profile also benefits from a modest
debt maturity profile, with only a $3 million term loan
amortization during the next twelve month. Alternative liquidity
is limited given the predominately all-asset pledge to the
company's various creditors.

The B2 rating on the senior secured revolver and term loan reflect
their seniority position in the consolidated capital structure,
including the benefits of both upstream from operating
subsidiaries and downstream guarantees parent entities. The Caa2
rating on the second lien loan reflects their junior position
relative to the aforementioned first lien lenders.

The ratings could be upgraded if leverage were to be sustained
below 6.0x or if EBITDA margins continue to improve from current
levels. The ratings could be downgraded if leverage were to exceed
8.0x, if free cash flow as a percentage of debt were to decline to
the low single digits or if the liquidity profile were to
deteriorate.

Wencor designs, repairs and distributes highly-engineered
aftermarket components for commercial airline and maintenance,
repair and overhaul (MRO) customers. Headquartered in Springville,
Utah and majority owned by private equity firm Warburg Pincus, the
company generated approximately $365 million of pro forma revenues
for the twelve months ended March 2014.

The principal methodology used in this rating was the Global
Aerospace and Defense Industry published in April 2014. Other
methodologies used include Loss Given Default for Speculative-
Grade Non-Financial Companies in the U.S., Canada and EMEA
published in June 2009.

LAKELAND INDUSTRIES: Reports Fiscal 2015 Q1 Financial Results
-------------------------------------------------------------
Lakeland Industries, Inc., filed with the U.S. Securities and
Exchange Commission its quarterly report on Form 10-Q disclosing
a net loss of $64 on $23.50 million of net sales for the three
months ended April 30, 2014, as compared with a net loss of
$844,480 on $21.73 million of net sales for the same period last
year.  Net loss decreased by $0.8 million to approximately
breakeven for the three months ended April 30, 2014, mainly due to
the reduction in Brazilian losses resulting from new management
and overall improvement in worldwide operations.

As of April 30, 2014, the Company had $88.20 million in total
assets, $40.99 million in total liabilities and $47.20 million in
total stockholders' equity.

As of April 30, 2014, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of
$7 million and working capital of $39 million.  Cash and cash
equivalents increased $2.5 million and working capital increased
$0.5 million from Jan. 31, 2014.

Christopher J. Ryan, president and chief executive officer of
Lakeland Industries, stated, "The Company's business
rationalization and transition is nearly complete as we are
experiencing solid growth internationally and domestically.  We
have made the necessary investments to grow our sales channels and
enhance our product development, while reducing our cost structure
and modifying operations for improved leverage.  Key initiatives
that have impacted our performance in the quarter are the residual
effects from the sale of a business unit in China in Q2 last
fiscal year, the relocation of certain manufacturing to Mexico and
the relocation of our facility in Pennsylvania.  As a result,
consolidated worldwide Adjusted EBITDA increased by 124% from last
year."

does not have new financing available at the date of this report."


LATISYS CORP: Moody's Affirms 'B3' Corporate Family Rating
----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has affirmed the B3 corporate family
rating (CFR) and B3-PD probability of default rating for Latisys
Corp following the company's announcement that it will re-price
its credit facilities and upsize the existing 1st lien term loan
by $20 million to fund future expansion projects. Moody's has
assigned a B3 (LGD 3-48%) rating to the company's proposed $20
million term loan add-on, which will increase the size of the
company's existing Term Loan B due 2019 to $199 million from $179
million. Proforma for the transaction, Moody's expects Latisys's
leverage to increase by 0.5x to 5.6x (Moody's adjusted) at year
end 2014 but the company's free cash flow is expected to improve
modestly from the lower cash interest expense with the re-pricing.
The outlook remains stable.

Corporate Family Rating, Affirmed B3

Senior Secured Bank Credit Facility Mar 6, 2019, Affirmed B3

Senior Secured Bank Credit Facility Mar 6, 2018, Affirmed B3

Ratings Rationale

Latisys's B3 rating reflects its small scale, high leverage and
Moody's expectation of persistent negative free cash flow as a
result of the company's high capital intensity. The rating also
incorporates the risk of price competition in the highly
competitive markets in which the company operates. These limiting
factors are offset by Latisys's stable base of contracted
recurring revenues and the strong market demand for colocation
services.

Moody's expects Latisys to have weak liquidity over the next
twelve months due to higher capital intensity in 2014 as the
company continues to invest for growth. Moody's projects free cash
flow to remain negative over the next several years. At the close
of the transaction, Moody's expects the company to have
approximately $20 million of cash on the balance sheet and full
availability under its $20 million revolver. The credit facility
has one financial covenant, a maximum total leverage test, which
steps down in four steps from 6.25x at the end of Q1 2014 to 4.5x
at the end of Q1 2015.

The stable outlook reflects Moody's view that Latisys will
continue to produce strong revenue and EBITDA growth that will
allow the company to delever towards 5x over the next 12-18
months.

While unlikely, Moody's could consider a ratings upgrade if the
company generated sustained free cash flow equal to at least 5% of
debt and leverage were to trend towards 4x (both on a Moody's
adjusted basis). Downward rating pressure could develop if
liquidity is strained further or Moody's adjusted leverage
increases above 7x as a result of business deterioration or debt-
funded acquisitions.

The principal methodology used in this rating was the Global
Communications Infrastructure Rating Methodology published in June
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.

Headquartered in Englewood, CO, Latisys Corp. ("Latisys" or "the
company") is a provider of data center, managed hosting and cloud
services. The company currently operates data centers in Irvine,
California; Englewood, Colorado; Centennial, Colorado; Oakbrook,
Illinois; and Ashburn, Virginia.


LAYNE CHRISTENSEN: Starts Another Strategic Review
--------------------------------------------------
Tatjana Kulkarni, writing for The Deal, reported that specialty

divest underperforming divisions, after The Woodlands, Texas-based
company reported its fifth consecutive quarterly loss.  According
to the report, the provider of drilling and construction services
to energy, mining and water management businesses reported a 15.5%
drop in revenues.

Total revenue for Layne fell to $191.2 million from $226.4 million
in the same period last year -- a 35% drop, the report said.
Layne also reported a net loss of $27.7 million in its first
quarter ended April 30 for the fiscal year 2015, up from $23.8
million in the same quarter of 2013, the report added.  While the
company did not specify which assets are under review, Layne said
it is reviewing strategic alternatives for underperforming assets,
which may point to its heavy civil and mineral services divisions,
the report related.


LEVEL 3: S&P Puts 'B+' CCR on CreditWatch Positive
--------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services placed its ratings, including
the 'B+' corporate credit rating, on Broomfield, Colo.-based Level
3 Communications Inc. on CreditWatch with positive implications.

"The CreditWatch positive placement follows Level 3's agreement to
acquire TW Telecom for stock and cash," said Standard & Poor's
credit analyst Richard Siderman.  "The tax-free transaction values
TW Telecom at around $7.3 billion including assumption of around
$1.9 billion of debt," he added.

Permanent financing of the transaction is to be determined, but
Level 3 has $3 billion of committed financing to fund the
acquisition, which is expected to close in the fourth quarter of
2014.

S&P expects the transaction to have a limited impact on Level 3's
credit metrics.  S&P anticipates pro forma debt leverage in the
low to mid-4x range in 2014.  S&P includes in the debt calculation
the reported debt of both companies at March 31, 2014 plus the
$1.4 billion cash component of the equity purchase price.  S&P do
not include potential funding to refinance the TW Telecom debt;
conversely, S&P has not netted debt by the near $1 billion of
aggregate cash at March 31.  Potential cost savings are not
included in the EBITDA calculation, but S&P would assess the level
and likelihood of these synergies in its CreditWatch review.  Pro
forma debt leverage does include S&P's significant adjustments,
mostly related to operating leases.

The TW Telecom acquisition is favorable for Level 3's business
risk profile as it would deepen Level 3's reach into metropolitan
markets and would boost the portion of revenues generated by
enterprise core network services (CNS).  S&P views enterprise CNS
as Level 3's most stable segment.  S&P's expectation of growing
enterprise CNS revenue underpinned our June 6, 2014 upgrade of
Level 3.

In resolving the CreditWatch, S&P will review Level 3's plans to
integrate TW Telecom and exploit the expanded product portfolio as
well as prospects for operating synergies.  S&P would raise the
corporate credit rating on Level 3 to 'BB-' from 'B+' if it
expected the TW Telecom acquisition to improve Level 3's business
risk profile to "fair" from "weak."


MEDIACOM LLC: Moody's Assigns B3 Rating on First Lien Term Loan
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a Ba3 rating to the proposed
first lien term loan of Mediacom LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of
Mediacom Communications Corporation.  The company expects to use
proceeds from the proposed term loan to repay Mediacom LLC's 9
1/8% senior notes maturing in August 2019.

Mediacom's B1 corporate family rating and the positive outlook are
unchanged. Moody's also updated Loss Given Default (LGD) point
estimates as shown.

Mediacom LLC

  Proposed Senior Secured Bank Credit Facility, Assigned Ba3,
  LGD3, 39%

  Existing Senior Secured Bank Credit Facility, Ba3, LGD adjusted
  to LGD3, 39% from LGD3, 33%

  Senior Unsecured Bonds, B3, LGD adjusted to LGD6, 91% from
  LGD5, 86%

Mediacom Broadband LLC

  Senior Secured Bank Credit Facility, Ba3, LGD adjusted to LGD3,
  39% from LGD3, 33%

  Senior Unsecured Bonds, B3, LGD adjusted to LGD6, 91% from
  LGD5, 86%

Ratings Rationale

The transaction would favorably extend maturities and lower annual
interest expense, with no meaningful impact on leverage, which
Moody's estimates at approximately 5.4 times debt-to-EBITDA for
the trailing twelve months ended March 31 and pro forma for the
recent issuance of term loans by both Mediacom LLC and sister
subsidiary Mediacom Broadband.

The principal methodology used in this rating was the Global Pay
Television - Cable and Direct-to-Home Satellite Operators
published in April 2013. Other methodologies used include Loss
Given Default for Speculative-Grade Non-Financial Companies in the
U.S., Canada and EMEA published in June 2009.

With its headquarters in Mediacom Park, New York, Mediacom
Communications Corporation (Mediacom) offers traditional and
advanced video services such as digital television, video-on-
demand, digital video recorders, and high-definition television,
as well as high-speed Internet access and phone service. The
company had approximately 937 thousand video subscribers, 984
thousand high speed data subscribers, and 390 thousand phone
subscribers as of March 31, 2014, and primarily serves smaller
cities in the midwestern and southern United States. It operates
through two wholly owned subsidiaries, Mediacom Broadband and
Mediacom LLC, and its annual revenue is approximately $1.6
billion.


MEDIACOM LLC: S&P Assigns 'BB' Rating on $350MM Term Loan Due 2021
------------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its 'BB' issue-level
rating and '2' recovery rating to Mediacom LLC Group's proposed
$350 million term loan G due 2021.  The '2' recovery rating
indicates S&P's expectation of substantial (70% to 90%) recovery
for lenders in the event of a payment default.

At the same time, S&P lowered its issue-level ratings on Mediacom
LLC Group's existing secured debt to 'BB' from 'BB+' and revised
the recovery ratings on this debt to '2' from '1'.  The revision
of the recovery ratings reflects the higher amount of secured debt
at Mediacom LLC Group following the proposed transaction, which
reduces the expected recovery for secured lenders under S&P's
hypothetical default scenario.

The issuer is a subsidiary of Mediacom Park, N.Y.-based cable-TV
operator Mediacom Communications Corp.  S&P expects proceeds,
along with revolver borrowings, will be used to repay the
company's existing $350 million of 9.125% senior unsecured notes
due 2019.  As a result, S&P expects adjusted leverage to remain
unchanged, while interest expense will decrease modestly due to
the refinancing of higher-cost debt.  Under S&P's base-case
scenario, it believes consolidated adjusted leverage for Mediacom
Communications will decline to the low-5x area in 2014, from about
5.4x in 2013 based on low- to mid-single-digit percent EBITDA
growth and potential debt repayment.

All other ratings on Mediacom, including the 'BB-' corporate
credit rating on parent Mediacom Communications Corp., are
unaffected.  Further near-term debt maturities include roughly
$204 million at Mediacom LLC Group under term loan C, which
matures Jan. 31, 2015.  Absent a refinancing, S&P believes the
company should have capacity to meet this debt maturity through
free operating cash flow and borrowings under its $225 million
revolving credit facility due 2019 at Mediacom LLC Group and its
$216 million revolving credit at Mediacom Broadband Group due
2016.

MEDIMEDIA USA: Moody's Affirms B3 CFR & Revises Outlook to Neg.
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service changed MediMedia USA, Inc.'s outlook to
negative from stable.  The B3 corporate family rating (CFR), B2
rating for the $215 million 1st lien term loan and $25 million
revolver, and Caa2 rating for the $100 million second lien were
affirmed at current levels.

The change in the outlook to negative is due to lower than
anticipated results and negative free cash flow which has weakened
the liquidity position of the company. As of Q1 2014, the company
has $17 million drawn against its $25 million revolver and Moody's
expect MediMedia will have to carefully manage its liquidity
position going forward. The company has restructured its
restricted subsidiaries into two main operating platforms which
are anticipated to lead to additional cost savings that will
offset some of the impact from lower than expected performance.
This restructuring changes its prior strategy to create four
standalone operating subsidiaries that was carried out last year.

Enclosed is a summary of Moody's actions:

MediMedia USA, Inc

  Corporate Family Rating, affirmed B3

  Probability of Default Rating, affirmed at B3-PD

  $25 million revolver maturing May 2018 affirmed at B2
  (LGD3-34%)

  $215 million 1st lien term loan maturing November 2018 affirmed
  at B2 (LGD3-34%)

  $100 million 2nd lien term loan maturing November 2019 affirmed
  at Caa2 (LGD5-86% updated from LGD5-85%)

Outlook, changed to negative from stable

Ratings Rationale

MediMedia's B3 CFR reflects the high leverage level, the negative
pressure on its print business, and negative free cash flow. The
rating also reflects the small size of the company which has
declined from asset sales and discontinued operations which cause
MediMedia to be less diversified than it has been in the past. The
company has suffered from revenue declines in its print segment
and will continue to be challenged by the transition from print to
digital. In addition, the company will have to update its service
offerings to adapt to a changing healthcare environment and to
meet evolving client needs which will result in elevated capex
spend over the next several years, although the merger of its
Krames StayWell and StayWell Health divisions are expected to
reduce the amount of capex spend.

Leverage is currently 6x as of Q1 2014 and Moody's expect leverage
to remain in this range over the next year as the company manages
its liquidity position. The restructuring, headcount, and capex
reductions are anticipated to lead to additional cost savings and
help offset operating underperformance. MediMedia's StayWell
division (which includes its former StayWell Health and Krames
StayWell divisions) is expected to continue to be pressured by
declining print revenue while the smaller Pharma Solutions
division is expected to be a contributor to growth.

MediMedia's liquidity is weak given the modest cash position of $3
and limited availability on its $25 million revolver ($17 million
drawn and $1.6 million of L/C's outstanding as of Q1 2014).
Moody's expect free cash flow to be negative in 2014. The company
is subject to a Secured Leverage Ratio of 7.5x which steps down to
7x in Q1 2015 and an Interest coverage ratio of 1.4x with steps up
to 1.5x in Q3 2014. Moody's expect the company to maintain an
adequate cushion of compliance but the cushion will decline as the
covenants tighten over time.

The outlook is negative due to the weak liquidity position and
Moody's expectation of flat to slightly negative revenue growth.
Moody's anticipate the sponsor may look for an exit from its
investment over the rating horizon that could lead to a sale of
additional businesses or the company as a whole.

An upgrade is unlikely given the current negative outlook, but
positive rating action could occur if the company generated
positive revenue and EBITDA growth, free cash flow of over 5% of
total debt, and a total leverage ratio comfortably under 5.25x on
a sustained basis.

A negative rating action would occur due to declines in revenue or
EBITDA that raised leverage above 6.25x. A weakened liquidity
position due to negative free cash flow and limited revolver
availability could also put negative pressure on the ratings or if
the company's ability to service its debt came into question.

The principal methodology used in this rating was the Global
Publishing Industry 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.

Headquartered in Yardley, Pennsylvania, MediMedia USA, Inc.
provides health information and services that inform consumers,
physicians, and other healthcare decision makers. Its annual
consolidated revenue is approximately $230 million as of
March 31, 2014. The company is primarily owned by Vestar Capital
Partners.

                           Going Concern

"The Company currently has no source of revenues.  In the years
ended December 31, 2013, 2012 and 2011, the Company incurred
losses, had negative cash flows from operating activities, and
will be required to obtain additional sources of financing to
complete its business plans going into the future.  Although the
Company had working capital of $35,133,368 at December 31, 2013,
including $35,687,694 of cash and short-term investments, the
Company has insufficient capital to finance its operations and the
Company's share of development costs of the Gahcho Kue Project
(Note 8) over the next 12 months.  The Company is currently
investigating various sources of additional funding to increase
the cash balances required for ongoing operations over the
foreseeable future.  These additional sources include, but are not
limited to, share offerings, private placements, rights offerings,
credit and debt facilities, as well as the exercise of outstanding
options.  However, there is no certainty that the Company will be
able to obtain financing from any of those sources.  These
conditions indicate the existence of a material uncertainty that
results in substantial doubt as to the Company's ability to
continue as a going concern," the Company said in the 2013 Annual
Report.

additional settlement shares pursuant to the terms of a settlement
agreement approved by the Supreme Court.  Following the issuances
of the amounts, the Company will have approximately 104,100,870
shares outstanding, which outstanding amount includes recent share
issuances related to previously issued convertible notes and
partial conversions of outstanding preferred stock.

On Dec. 2, 2013, the Supreme Court of the State of New York,
County of New York, entered an order approving, among other
things, the fairness of the terms and conditions of an exchange
pursuant to Section 3(a)(10) of the Securities Act of 1933, as
amended, in accordance with a stipulation of settlement among
NewLead Holdings Ltd., a corporation organized and existing under
the laws of Bermuda, Hanover Holdings I, LLC, a New York limited
liability company, and MG Partners Limited, a company with limited
liability organized and existing under the laws of Gibraltar, in
the matter entitled Hanover Holdings I, LLC v. NewLead Holdings
Ltd., Case No. 160776/2013.

Hanover commenced the Action against the Company on Nov. 19, 2013,
to recover an aggregate of $44,822,523 of past-due indebtedness of
the Company, which Hanover had purchased from certain creditors of
the Company pursuant to the terms of separate purchase agreements
between Hanover and each of those creditors (all of which purchase
agreements, and all of Hanover's rights and obligations
thereunder, were validly assigned to MGP by Hanover pursuant to
the Settlement Agreement approved by the Order), plus fees and
costs.  The Order provides for the full and final settlement of
the Claim and the Action.  The Settlement Agreement became
effective and binding upon the Company, Hanover and MGP upon
execution of the Order by the Court on Dec. 2, 2013.

Pursuant to the terms of the Settlement Agreement approved by the
Order, on Dec. 2, 2013, the Company issued and delivered to MGP,
as Hanover's designee, 3,500 shares (adjusted to give effect to
the 1 for 10 and 1-for-50 reverse stock splits, effective March 6,
2014, and May 15, 2014, respectively) of the Company's common
stock, $5.00 par value.

Between Jan. 3, 2014, and June 6, 2014, the Company issued and
delivered to MGP an aggregate of 23,458,000 (adjusted to give
effect to the 1 for 10 and 1-for-50 reverse stock splits,

ONCURE HOLDINGS: Wants Until Sept. 8 to Remove Civil Actions
------------------------------------------------------------
The Bankruptcy Court will convene a hearing on July 7, 2014, at
9:00 a.m., to consider Oncure Holdings, Inc., et al.'s motion to
extend until Sept. 8, 2014, the deadline to file notices of
removal of civil actions under Bankruptcy Rule 9027(a).
Objections, if any, were due June 18 at 4:00 p.m.

The Debtors relate that on Oct. 3, 2013, the Court entered an
order confirming the Plan of Reorganization.  The Plan became
effective by its terms on Oct. 25, 2013.

The Debtors noted that they may be parties to various civil
actions, and are in the process of assessing the relevant
information to make informed decisions about those actions to
determine whether removal is warranted.  Pursuant to Bankruptcy
Rule 9027(a), the original removal deadline was Sept. 12, 2013,
and was further extended.

The Debtors said they had been occupied with transitioning their
business to the purchaser of the new common stock of the
reorganized parent company of the Debtors.  In addition, the
Debtors concurrently have been attending to various operational
and administrative matters arising in these Chapter 11 Cases and
analyzing claims filed against the Debtors.  Consequently, the
Debtors have yet to finish their analysis as to whether any
pending actions should be removed.

---------------------------------------------------
Jacqueline Palank, writing for The Wall Street Journal, reported
that a Minnesota liberal arts college that was once a beneficiary
of Tom Petters's largesse will return $600,000 of the $3 million
it received.

According to the report, the College of St. Benedict, of St.
Joseph, Minn., in 2003 received a $3 million gift from Mr.

auditorium.  With litigation to recover $2 million of the donated
funds reaching as high as a U.S. appeals court, the College of St.
Benedict and the bankruptcy trustee demanding the return of the
funds participated in mediation in February, the report said.  The
talks yielded a settlement in which the college joined the ranks
of other organizations that have agreed to return a portion of
their funds, the report related.

----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has assigned a B3 Corporate Family
Rating ("CFR") to Premier Leasing, Inc. ("Premier Trailer") and a
Caa2 rating to the new $135 million senior second priority secured
term loan that the company is arranging.  The net proceeds of the
new term loan will be used to fund a $110 million shareholder
distribution and the remainder to repay indebtedness outstanding
under the company's revolving line of credit.  The B3 CFR takes
into account Premier Trailer's position as a leading provider of
trailer rental and leasing services and its attractive level of
profitability, balanced against the company's limited scale and
the cyclical nature of the trailer leasing business.  The ratings
outlook is stable.

Ratings Rationale

The B3 CFR of Premier Trailer takes into account the company's
position as a leading provider of rental and leasing services for
dry-vans, flatbeds and specialty equipment in the transportation
industry. With a fleet of 24,187 trailers, including the recent
acquisition of Trailer Fleet International, Premier Trailer is the
third largest trailer rental and leasing company in the U.S. While
currently primarily active in the mid-market segment, Premier
Trailer's strategic objective is to grow its business with
national accounts as it develops its geographical footprint in the
western U.S.

The B3 CFR also reflects the company's attractive level of
profitability. Moody's calculates operating margins at 32% for
2013 and expects the company to sustain margins of more than 30%
in 2014. Given that fleet depreciation accounts for a material
proportion of the company's cost structure, this translates into
robust cash flow from operations. Capital expenditures, however,
are elevated as the company grows its business and replaces some
of its older equipment, which represented approximately 38% of
total fleet count in 2013. Consequently, free cash flow was
negative in 2013 and Moody's expects free cash flow in 2014 to be
negative as well, even before the $110 million shareholder
distribution that is funded with the proceeds of the new term
loan.

Although Premier Trailer is one of the leading providers of
trailer rental and leasing services, its scale is limited. Revenue
in 2013 was $67 million and is likely to remain less than $100
million in the next 12 to 18 months, absence any acquisitions in
addition to Trailer Fleet International. Furthermore, Moody's
considers the trailer rental and leasing business a cyclical
business. Freight volumes and truck utilization levels have
increased steadily since 2010, increasing demand for trailers. As
a result, Premier Trailer has benefited from increasing rates as
well as improving utilization rates for its rental fleet. A
cyclical downturn will pressure earnings, however, in particular
as Premier Trailer's short term rental business represents almost
50% of total revenues.

Total debt will be elevated following the proposed transaction.
Moody's estimates Debt to EBITDA to be around 5.5 times and EBIT
to Interest to be circa 1.7 times, levels which are robust
relative to the median level for B3 rated issuers. Moody's
considers Premier Trailer's liquidity adequate. The company
maintains a minimal cash balance and is reliant on its $200
million revolving line of credit to help fund part of its capital
expenditures.

The new $135 million senior second-priority term loan is rated
Caa2, two notches below the B3 CFR, which reflects the substantial
amount of the first-lien secured revolving line of credit in
Moody's Loss Given Default ("LGD") analysis and the more junior
position of the term loan relative to this revolver.

The stable outlook is predicated on Moody's expectation of
increasing truck tonnage in a steadily improving U.S. economy,
supporting lease rates and fleet utilization levels.

The ratings could be lowered if demand for trailers weakens, lease
rates decline or rental utilization deteriorates, such that
operating margins decrease to less than 25%, negatively impacting
cash flows. Ratings could also be lowered if Debt to EBITDA
increases to more than 6.5 times for a sustained period of time or
if EBIT to Interest approaches 1.0 time. Additional shareholder
distributions are likely to affect the ratings adversely as well.

Moody's does not foresee upwards rating pressure in the near term.
Over the medium term, a positive rating action could be considered
if Premier Trailer is able grow its business and demonstrate
consistent operating margins through the business cycle,
generating free cash flow that is deployed to de-lever its balance
sheet. Debt to EBITDA of less than 4.5 times and EBIT to Interest
of more than 2.0 times would support a positive rating action.

The principal methodology used in this rating was the Global
Surface Transportation and Logistics Companies published in April
2013. Other methodologies used include Loss Given Default for
Speculative-Grade Non-Financial Companies in the U.S., Canada and
EMEA published in June 2009.

PSL-NORTH AMERICA: Files for Ch. 11 to Sell to Jindal for $100MM
----------------------------------------------------------------
PSL-North America LLC and an affiliate sought bankruptcy
protection with plans to sell most of their assets to Jindal
Tubular USA LLC for cash and assumed liabilities totaling $100
million, absent higher and better offers.

The Debtors have filed with the bankruptcy court a motion to
establish bidding and auction procedures, and pay Jindal a break-
up fee and reimbursement of expenses in the event it is outbid at
the auction.

Given a significant demand but limited supply of cement-mortar
lined ("CML") pipe, the company sees a unique and significant
growth opportunity.  Because the majority of the water
transmission pipeline market requires the use of CML pipes, the
company has commissioned Jindal to design an expansion to the
company's manufacturing facility.  With a $7 million investment,
the company expects to be able to commission the new expansion and
start producing CML pipe no later than December 2014.

To meet the requirements of the pipeline project, the Debtors
propose this time-line:

    Event                                     Deadline
    -----                                     --------
Proposed Bidding Procedures Hearing      On or about July 11, 2014
Proposed Bid Deadline                    On or about Aug. 11, 2014
Auction                                  On or about Aug. 13, 2014
Sale Hearing                             On or about Aug. 15, 2014
Closing                                No Later than Aug. 31, 2014

The $100 million offer from Jindal is comprised of cash plus the
assumption of all of the Debtors' obligations under the $76.8
million in outstanding tax-exempt and taxable variable rate demand
revenue bonds issued by the Mississippi Business Bank Finance
Corporation.  Of the cash purchase price, Jindal will pay directly
to Duff & Phelps Securities LLC, an amount not to exceed $2.2
million as a success fee.

In the event the Debtors pursue an alternative transaction, Jindal
will receive a termination fee of $3 million plus expense
reimbursement not to exceed $500,000.

The stalking horse agreement provides that Jindal may terminate
the agreement if the bidding procedures order will not have been
enterd within 25 days of the Petition Date, the sale order will
not have been entered by 85 days after the Petition Date, and the
closing will not have occurred by Aug. 31, 2014.

                       Other First Day Motions

The Debtors on the Petition Date also filed motions to continue
using their cash management system, honor their prepetition
obligations to 68 employees, and provide adequate assurance of
payment to utility service providers.  The Debtors are also
seeking interim and final approval of a DIP facility from ICICI or
its designee.

                    Prepetition Capital Structure

As of the Petition Date, the company had total outstanding debt
obligations of $130 million.  The Debtors' prepetition credit
facilities are comprised of: (a) a loan agreement with Mississippi
Business Finance Corporation, (b) a $77.6 million credit facility
with ICICI Bank Limited, and (c) a $30 million term loan agreement
with Standard Chartered Bank, Dubai International Financial Centre
Branch, as lender.  The company has $4.42 million in outstanding
unsecured debt evidenced by notes, payable to Export Import Bank
of India for equipment financing, Hanwa American Corporation for a
steel coil financing arrangement and CSX Transportation for
transportation related financing.  The company also has $13.12
million in unpaid, ordinary course trade debt.

                 Events Preceding Bankruptcy Filing

According to Brian J. Vaill, the CEO of PSL NA, the confluence of
three significant events contributed to the filing of the Chapter
11 cases: (1) the losses incurred with its Florida transmission
project, (2) macroeconomic market conditions as a result of the
recent recession, and (3) PSL Ltd's Indian insolvency proceedings.

Soon after it was formed, PSL NA received a significant order of
steel pipe for a gas transmission project in Alabama and Florida
due to enter service in 2011.  The project required 210,000 tons
-- roughly 450 miles -- of steel pipe and promised significant
returns on investment.  However, quality problems arose after
production started in January 2009.  The company provided only
130,000 tons of the original 210,000 required as operators reduced
their order from PSL NA and pursued alternative sources.  The
company estimates $30 million negative cash impact due to a
defective steel coil that F.J. Elsner delivered.

The company also said that it saw a decrease in demand for new
commercial construction and ultimately demand for new large
diameter steel pipe during the 2008 to 2010 recession.  The
company attempted several price adjustment programs in an effort
to remain competitive, but was restricted by the reduced demand
for large diameter steel pipe.  The company's revenues and EBITDA
have declined year-over-year since operations began in 2009.

According to PSL NA, although struggling companies may look to
parent-entities for equity infusions, PSL Ltd., the direct and
indirect parent of the Debtors, has recently battled its own
credit crisis.  In 2013, PSL Ltd initiated a restructuring of
nearly $900 million of debt.  The lack of parent support further
limited PSL NA's restructuring options.

After evaluating its hemorrhaging cash flow and weakening
operations, the Company determined that commencing the Chapter 11
cases and commencing a sale process for all substantially all of
the Company's assets will maximize the value of their estates for
the benefit of creditors.

PSL-NORTH AMERICA: Proposes $11.5-Mil. DIP Facility from ICICI
--------------------------------------------------------------
PSL-North America LLC and PSL USA Inc. ask the bankruptcy court
for approval of an $11.5 million postpetition credit facility with
ICICI Bank Limited, New York Branch.

ICICI, a prepetition lender, has not required the Debtors to enter
into a postpetition credit agreement, and is willing to provide
financing pursuant only to an interim order and ultimately a final
order.  The customary provisions of a credit agreement are set
forth in the proposed interim order.

The Debtors propose to borrow funds from ICICI for working capital
and general corporate purposes in an amount not to exceed $5.5
million following entry of an interim and an an amount not to
exceed $11.5 million upon entry of a final order.  The Debtors
believe that these amounts will allow them to continue their
operations pending the closing of a sale.

All cash collateral subject to prepetition lender Standard
Chartered Bank's first priority lien has been segregated and will
only be used with SCB's consent or further order of the Court.
The Debtors therefore are only currently requesting that the Court
authorize the use of non-SCB cash collateral.

The material terms of the DIP facility are:

    * Borrower:        PSL - North America LLC

    * Guarantors:      PSL USA Inc. and non-debtor subsidiaries

    * Lender:          ICICI Bank or designee

    * Maturity:        Sept. 30, 2014

    * Interest:        Rate of 3-month LIBOR plus 5.5% per annum.
                       Interest will increase 1% for non-payment
                       defaults and 2% for any default in payment.

    * Security:        The DIP Lender will be granted postpetition
                       liens in all of the Debtors' assets,
                       including 100% of the capital stock of PSL
                       NA's direct and indirect domestic
                       subsidiaries and avoidance claims.  The DIP
                       Lender will be granted an allowed
                       superpriority administrative expense claim
                       pursuant to Sec. 364(c)(1) of the
                       Bankruptcy Code.

RADIOSHACK CORP: S&P Lowers CCR to 'CCC' on Poor Operating Trends
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its corporate credit
rating on the Fort Worth, Texas-based RadioShack Corp. to 'CCC'
from 'CCC+'.  The rating outlook is negative.  At the same time,
S&P lowered the rating on the company's senior unsecured notes to
'CC' from 'CCC-', two notches below the corporate credit rating.
The notes' recovery rating remains a '6', which indicates S&P's
expectation of negligible (0%-10%) recovery of principal in the
event of payment default.

"The downgrade reflects the company's very weak operating trends,
which have led to significant liquidity usage.  Even if
performance trends moderate, we expect the company to be using
cash over the near term," said credit analyst Charles Pinson-Rose.
"We currently expect that the company has liquidity sources to
finance the operating losses and working capital needs in the
current fiscal year (ending January 2015), but the company would
have very small amounts of liquidity early next year, which could
lead to a liquidity crisis and default or the company's decision
to seek a financial restructuring."

S&P's negative outlook on RadioShack Corp. reflects its view that
the company will have weak operating results over the near term
and further deplete its liquidity sources.

Downside Scenario

S&P would likely lower the ratings if it viewed a default as
inevitable within six months.  S&P may do so if the company's
operating trajectory stayed the same or worsened and its available
liquidity sources were below $200 million.

Upside scenario

A specific upside scenario is not contemplated, but it would
likely mean that the company materially improves operating trends
such that cash usage was not material or manageable for an
extended period of time.  For this to occur, S&P would expect
EBITDA to be at least near zero or slightly positive.

2013.  This factor among other things, raises substantial doubt
about its ability to continue as a going concern.

S.B. RESTAURANT: Files for Chapter 11 for Quick Sale
----------------------------------------------------
S.B. Restaurant Co. dba Elephant Bar Global Grill/Wok Kitchen
, now a chain of 29 restaurants in seven states, filed a petition
for Chapter 11 protection (Bankr. C.D. Cal. Case No. 14-bk-13778)
on June 17 in Santa Ana, California.

The Company has also filed a motion for approval of $3.3 million
of "debtor-in-possession" ("DIP") financing, which will allow the
Company to continue to operate in the ordinary course of business
during the bankruptcy proceeding.  The Company intends to utilize
the bankruptcy process to consummate the sale of its business as a
going concern and is in the process of seeking a strategic partner
to acquire its business operations.

Like so many other casual dining chains, the challenging economic
environment and increasing competitiveness of the industry have
impacted Elephant Bar.  "The Company reluctantly closed 16
locations this month, and believes these actions will allow it to
get back to focusing on operations and enhancing the concept to
establish a stronger foundation for the future," says President
and CEO Robert Holden.  Through its 29 remaining locations,
Elephant Bar will continue to serve customers -- as it has for
over 30 years -- and will honor all gift cards and points earned
through the customer loyalty program.

Headquartered in La Mirada, California, S.B. Restaurant --
http://www.elephantbar.com-- operates more than 50 Elephant Bar
Restaurants in California and about 10 other states.  The
restaurants are known for their Asian and Polynesian-inspired
dishes and safari decor.  The casual dining spots also offer
traditional favorites such as burgers, pasta, sandwiches, and
wood-fired pizza, as well as appetizers and tropical-themed
drinks.  David Nancarrow, who founded the Carrows family-dining
chain (now owned by Catalina Restaurant Group) opened the first
Elephant Bar in the 1980s.  The company is controlled by private
equity firm Apax Partners.

According to Bloomberg News, the Company's liabilities total $46.1
million, including $27.4 million owing on a first-lien credit with
Cerberus Business Finance LLC as agent.  Cerberus will finance the
Chapter 11 effort with a $3.3 million loan, including $1.5 million
to be advanced on an interim basis.

SAN JOSE REPERTORY: Files for Chapter 7 Liquidation
---------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that San Jose Repertory Theatre, founded in 1980, won't
have a 35th season after filing for bankruptcy liquidation on June
13 in its California hometown.  According to the report, the city
of San Jose is the largest creditor, with a claim of $1.9 million.

The case is In re San Jose Repertory Theatre, 14-bk-52564, U.S.
Bankruptcy Court, Northern District California (San Jose).


SANCHEZ ENERGY: S&P Retains 'B-' Rating Following Add-On
--------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that its 'B-' issue-level
rating and '5' recovery rating on Houston-based exploration and
production company Sanchez Energy Corp.'s senior unsecured notes
are unchanged following the company's announcement that it has
upsized its note offering to $850 million from $700 million.  This
assumes that the borrowing base commitment will remain unchanged
at $425 million.  While recovery expectations under S&P's default
scenario are at the very low end of the range for the '5' recovery
rating, S&P expects that the company will continue to increase its
reserve base quickly, which should add to its PV10 valuation under
its recovery pricing scenario.

SEARS HOLDINGS: Deregisters 93,026 Shares Under Savings Plan
------------------------------------------------------------
Sears Holdings Corporation filed with the U.S. Securities and
Exchange Commission a post-effective amendment no.1 to its
registration statement on Form S-8.

On Oct. 4, 2010, Sears Holdings filed the Registration Statement
to register 1,200,000 shares of common stock of the Company and an
indeterminate amount of interests with respect to the Sears
Holdings Savings Plan (formerly Sears Holdings 401(k) Savings
Plan), the Lands' End, Inc. Retirement Plan, and the Sears
Holdings Puerto Rico Savings Plan (formerly Sears Puerto Rico
Savings Plan).  On Sept. 11, 2013, the Company filed a
registration statement on Form S-8 to register additional shares
of common stock of the Company and an indeterminate amount of
interests with respect to the Sears Holdings Savings Plan and the
Sears Holdings Puerto Rico Savings Plan.

On April 4, 2014, the Company completed the distribution of 100
percent of the outstanding shares of common stock of Lands' End,
Inc., to the Company's stockholders, as a result of which, Lands'
End separated from the Company.  The Lands' End Plan subsequently
terminated the option to invest in shares of Common Stock under
the Lands' End Plan.  The Post-Effective Amendment was filed to
remove from registration the 93,026 shares of Common Stock and
Plan Interests not sold pursuant to the 2010 Registration
Statement.

                             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.


SMOKY MOUNTAIN: Chapter 11 Case Voluntarily Dismissed
-----------------------------------------------------
At a hearing held on May 1, 2014, the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the Eastern District of Tennessee granted a motion to voluntarily
dismiss the Chapter 11 case of Smoky Mountain Motels, Inc.

The Court directs the Debtors' counsel to submit an appropriate
order approved by the United States Trustee.  If no order has been
tendered, the court presumes the Debtor no longer seeks to dismiss
its Chapter 11 proceeding and accordingly directs that the Debtor
to appear and show cause why its Chapter 11 case should not now be
converted to Chapter 7.

Nashville, Tenn.-based Smoky Mountain Motels, Inc. -- fka Music
City Motels, Inc., and dba Smoky Shadows Motel & Conference Center
-- filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy (Bankr. E.D. Tenn. Case No. 14-
30557) on Feb. 26, 2014.  Bankruptcy Judge Richard Stair Jr.
oversees the case.  Steven L. Lefkovitz, Esq., at Lefkovitz &
Lefkovitz, serves as the Debtor's counsel.  Smoky Mountain Motels
disclosed total assets of $11.43 million and total liabilities of
$8.72 million.  The petition was signed by Eddie Rhines,
president.


SPANISH BROADCASTING: Stockholders Elected 8 Directors
------------------------------------------------------
Spanish Broadcasting System, Inc., held its annual meeting of
stockholders on June 6, 2014, at which the stockholders elected
Raul Alarcon, Joseph A. Garcia, Manuel E. Machado, Jason L.
Shrinsky, Jose A. Villamil and Mitchell A. Yelen as common stock
directors to hold office until such time as their respective
successors have been duly elected and qualified.  Alan Miller and
Gary Stone were elected as preferred stock directors to hold
office until such time as their respective successors have been
duly elected and qualified.  The Preferred Stock Directors were
nominees of Lehman Brothers Holding Inc.

                     About Spanish Broadcasting

Headquartered in Coconut Grove, Florida, Spanish Broadcasting
System, Inc. -- http://www.spanishbroadcasting.com/-- owns and
operates 21 radio stations targeting the Hispanic audience.  The
Company also owns and operates Mega TV, a television operation
with over-the-air, cable and satellite distribution and affiliates
throughout the U.S. and Puerto Rico.  Its revenue for the twelve
months ended Sept. 30, 2010, was approximately $140 million.

The Company's balance sheet at March 31, 2014, showed $466.08
million in total assets, $526.56 million in total liabilities and
a $60.47 million total stockholders' deficit.  Spanish
Broadcasting reported a net loss of $88.56 million in 2013, as
compared with a net loss of $1.28 million in 2012.

                           *     *     *

In November 2010, Moody's Investors Service upgraded the corporate
family and probability of default ratings for Spanish Broadcasting
System, Inc., to 'Caa1' from 'Caa3' based on improved free cash
flow prospects due to better than anticipated cost cutting and the
expiration of an unprofitable interest rate swap agreement.
Moody's said Spanish Broadcasting's 'Caa1' corporate family rating
incorporates its weak capital structure, operational pressure in
the still cyclically weak economic climate, generally narrow
growth prospects (though Spanish language is the strongest growth
prospect) given the maturity and competitive pressures in the
radio industry, and the June 2012 maturity of its term loan
magnify this challenge.

In May 2014, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its
corporate credit rating on U.S. Spanish-language broadcaster
Spanish Broadcasting System Inc. (SBS) to 'CCC+' from 'B-'.
"The downgrade reflects our view that the company's current
capital structure is unsustainable, given its inability to redeem
its preferred stock, which was put to the company in October of
2013," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Chris Valentine.


STANFORD GROUP: Supreme Court Sets Conference on Ponzi Trustee
--------------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that the U.S. Supreme Court will probably say June 30
whether liquidator of the R. Allen Stanford Ponzi scheme will be
allowed a final appeal on its quest to hold financial institutions
to account for their roles in allegedly helping perpetuate fraud.

According to the report, the case raises the question of whether a
receiver appointed by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission
or a trustee named under the Securities Investor Protection Act
are a peculiar breed who, unlike ordinary bankruptcy trustees, can
sue based on claims belonging to creditors.

The Stanford case in the Supreme Court is Janvey v. Alguire, 13-
913, U.S. Supreme Court (Washington).

                       About Stanford Group

The Stanford Financial Group was a privately held international
group of financial services companies controlled by Allen
Stanford, until it was seized by United States (U.S.) authorities
in early 2009.

Domiciled in Antigua, Stanford International Bank Limited --
http://www.stanfordinternationalbank.com/-- is a member of
Stanford Private Wealth Management, a global financial services
network with US$51 billion in deposits and assets under
management or advisement.  Stanford Private Wealth Management
served more than 70,000 clients in 140 countries.

On Feb. 16, 2009, the United States District Court for the
Northern District of Texas, Dallas Division, signed an order
appointing Ralph Janvey as receiver for all the assets and
records of Stanford International Bank, Ltd., Stanford Group
Company, Stanford Capital Management, LLC, Robert Allen Stanford,
James M. Davis and Laura Pendergest-Holt and of all entities they
own or control.  The February 16 order, as amended March 12,
2009, directs the Receiver to, among other things, take control
and possession of and to operate the Receivership Estate, and to
perform all acts necessary to conserve, hold, manage and preserve
the value of the Receivership Estate.

The case in district court was Securities and Exchange Commission
v. Securities Investor Protection Corp., 11-mc-00678, U.S.
District Court, District of Columbia (Washington).

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, on Feb. 17, charged
before the U.S. District Court in Dallas, Texas, Mr. Stanford and
three of his companies for orchestrating a fraudulent, multi-
billion dollar investment scheme centering on an US$8 billion
Certificate of Deposit program.

A criminal case was pursued against him in June before the U.S.
District Court in Houston, Texas.  Mr. Stanford pleaded not
guilty to 21 charges of multi-billion dollar fraud, money-
laundering and obstruction of justice.  Assistant Attorney
General Lanny Breuer, as cited by Agence France-Presse News, said
in a 57-page indictment that Mr. Stanford could face up to 250
years in prison if convicted on all charges.  Mr. Stanford
surrendered to U.S. authorities after a warrant was issued for
his arrest on the criminal charges.


STARR PASS: Section 341(a) Meeting Scheduled for July 24
--------------------------------------------------------
A meeting of creditors in the bankruptcy case of Starr Pass
Residential LLC will be held on July 24, 2014, at 11:30 a.m. at
U.S. Trustee Meeting Room, James A. Walsh Court, 38 S Scott Ave,
St 140, in Tucson, Arizona.

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.

Starr Pass Residential LLC, filed a Chapter 11 bankruptcy petition
(Bankr. D. Ariz. Case No. 14-09117) on June 12, 2014.  Christopher
Ansley signed the petition as authorized officer.  Gust Rosenfeld,
P.L.C., serves as the Debtor's counsel.  The Debtor disclosed
total assets of $7.40 million and total liabilities of $145.86
million.


SURGERY CENTER: Moody's Affirms B3 CFR & Revises Outlook to Neg.
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service revised the rating outlook on Surgery
Center Holdings Inc. ("Surgery Partners") to negative from stable.
Moody's also affirmed the existing ratings of Surgery Partners,
including the B3 Corporate Family Rating and B3-PD Probability of
Default Rating. The change in the rating outlook follows the
company's announcement on June 13, 2014 that it has entered into
an agreement to acquire Symbion, Inc. for a total purchase price
of $792 million. Symbion is an owner and operator of short-stay
surgical facilities providing, non-emergency surgical procedures,
including orthopedics, pain management and gastroenterology.

The change in the rating outlook to negative reflects the
significant amount of debt being proposed and Moody's estimates
that Surgery Partner's pro forma debt to EBITDA before synergies,
if the transaction is all debt financed will be around 8.0 times
for the LTM period ending March 31, 2014, which is high for a B3
rating. Furthermore, Moody's has concerns that the risks
associated with the transformational acquisition that will see
Surgery Partners tripling its revenue to over $800 million and the
potential challenges of integrating such a sizable acquisition
could be disruptive to operations.

Following is a summary of Moody's ratings on Surgery Center
Holdings, Inc.:

Ratings affirmed:

Corporate Family Rating, B3

Probability of Default Rating, B3-PD

$30 million senior secured revolving credit facility expiring 2018
at B1 (LGD 3, 30%)

$315 million senior secured first lien term loan due 2019 at B1
(LGD 3, 30%)

$210 million senior secured second lien term loan due 2020 at Caa2
(LGD 5, 82%)

Rating Rationale

The B3 Corporate Family Rating reflects Surgery Partners' very
high leverage, its relatively small scale with revenues under $280
million and aggressive acquisition and shareholder friendly
financial policy. It should be noted that following the proposed
all debt financed acquisition and the 2014 and 2013 shareholder
dividends, H.I.G. Capital and management have no capital remaining
from their initial investment. Furthermore, the ratings are
constrained by an economic environment that has limited growth in
the first quarter of 2014, particularly the high underemployment
rate and increasing healthcare expense burden on patients, which
has lead to fewer procedures than expected. In addition, the
potential for rate compression from government sponsored programs
(mostly Medicare) and commercial payors over the longer-term is a
concern.

The rating benefits from the industries long-term growth prospects
for the sector, as many patients and payors prefer the outpatient
environment (primarily due to lower cost and better outcomes) for
certain specialty procedures.

The negative outlook reflects the proposed very high debt leverage
associated with the Symbion acquisition and the risks around
integrating an acquisition significantly larger than Surgery
Partners.

The rating could be downgraded if the company is unable to improve
its financial performance, while integrating Symbion or if
liquidity were to deteriorate and free cash flow turn negative.

The outlook could be changed back to stable if the company is able
to reduce debt to EBITDA to below 7.0 times, while also
integrating Symbion without financial or operational disruption.
In addition, for the outlook to be changed back to stable, same
center revenue and EBITDA would have to show improvement. A
ratings upgrade is currently not likely given the company's size
and debt leverage, but could occur as debt to EBITDA is sustained
around 5 times.

The principal methodology used in this rating was the Global
Healthcare Service Providers 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.

Surgery Partners owns and operates 47 ambulatory surgical centers
in partnership with its physician partners, across 18 states. The
Company has diversified core competencies in pain management,
orthopedics, gastrointestinal, ophthalmology, ear, nose and
throat, general surgery and urology. Surgery Partners also
provides ancillary services including anesthesia and physician
practice services. Surgery Partners is owned 100% by H.I.G.
Capital and management.


SURGERY CENTER: S&P Puts 'B' CCR on CreditWatch Negative
--------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services placed its ratings, including
the 'B' corporate credit rating, on Surgery Center Holdings Inc.
on CreditWatch with negative implications following the company's
announcement that it plans to acquire Symbion Inc. for
$792 million.  S&P expects the transaction will be financed with a
significant amount of debt.

"The CreditWatch listing reflects our expectation of heightened
financial risk as a result of Surgery Center's acquisition of
Symbion Inc.," said credit analyst Tulip Lim.  "For the year ended
Dec. 31, 2013, Surgery Center's leverage, adjusted for operating
leases, was very high at 7.2x, and we believe this transaction
could cause leverage to rise by a turn or more."

S&P expects to resolve its CreditWatch listing when the company's
financing plans are finalized.  It is unlikely that S&P would
lower the ratings by more than one notch.


SYCAMORE PARTNERS: Express Deal No Impact on Moody's 'Ba3' Rating
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service said that Sycamore Partners' disclosure
of a 9.9% stake in Express, Inc. (NYSE: EXPR), the parent entity
of Express LLC ("Express", Ba3 Stable) and interest in acquiring
the company's remaining shares, is a potential credit negative but
has no ratings impact at present.

Express LLC ("Express"), headquartered in Columbus, Ohio, is an
apparel retailer targeting 20- to 30-year-old men and women. The
company operates more than 620 retail stores in the United States,
Puerto Rico and Canada. It also franchises stores in the Middle
East and Latin America. It also franchises stores in the Middle
East, South Africa and Latin America. Revenues for the twelve
months ended May 3, 2014 were approximately $2.2 billion.

THINGS REMEMBERED: Moody's Cuts CFR to B3 & Secured Debt to B2
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded all ratings of Things
Remembered, including the Corporate Family Rating to B3 from B2,
Probability of Default Rating to Caa1-PD from B2-PD, and senior
secured credit facilities to B2 from B1. All ratings remain on
review for downgrade.

Ratings Rationale

Ratings Downgraded:

Corporate Family Rating to B3 from B2

Probability of Default Rating to Caa1-PD from B2-PD

$146 million senior secured term loan to B2(LGD2-24%) from
B1(LGD3-42%)

$30 million senior secured revolver to B2(LGD2-24%) from
B1(LGD3-42%)

The rating actions are driven by Things Remembered's negative
operating performance trends over the past fifteen months, and
increasing liquidity concerns due to step-downs in the company's
financial maintenance covenants that occur during 2014. Moody's
estimates that even at current EBITDA levels, Things Remembered
will be unable to meet its financial maintenance covenants some
time during this current fiscal year. The review will focus on the
company's ability to improve operating earnings, or obtain any
necessary relief, either through covenant waivers or utilization
of an equity cure, in order to avoid a potential covenant
violation.

The two-notch downgrade in the Probability of Default Rating
reflects the heightened risk of default if none of these events
occur, and incorporates Moody's estimation of above average
recovery prospects in the event of a default, given both the first
lien priority of claim of the credit facilities, and a material
equity cushion in the capital structure.

Things Remembered's B3 Corporate Family Rating reflects its weak
liquidity position, due primarily to deteriorating headroom under
its financial maintenance covenants, caused by soft operating
trends which have driven a near 17% decline in EBITDA in the past
fifteen months. Other factors include the company's weak lease-
adjusted credit metrics, small size, narrow product focus, and the
discretionary nature of its products, balanced by a conservative
capitalization with significant equity cushion relative to
comparable private equity owned specialty retailers, a growing
multi-channel presence, and solid margins.

A ratings downgrade could occur if Things Remembered's operating
trends were to worsen, further pressuring the company's weak
liquidity position. Quantitatively, an expectation for cash
interest coverage below 1.0 times would likely lead to a ratings
downgrade.

In view of the company's existing operating challenges and
potential liquidity concerns, a ratings upgrade is unlikely in the
near term. A ratings upgrade would require much improved liquidity
and an expectation for lease adjusted debt/EBITDA sustained below
6 times. The outlook could revert to stable if operating trends
were to stabilize, and if cushion under financial maintenance
covenants were to improve.

Things Remembered, Inc., headquartered in Highland Heights, Ohio,
is a leading retailer of personalized and occasion-based gifts.
The company operates about 672 retail stores, kiosks, and outside
key shops located primarily in shopping malls throughout the
United States and Canada. Annualized revenues approximate $320
million.


THOMPSON CREEK: Extends Expiration of Tender Offer to June 24
-------------------------------------------------------------
Thompson Creek Metals Company Inc. amended certain pricing terms
of its offer to exchange outstanding 6.50% Tangible Equity Units
(CUSIP No. 884768 300; ISIN CA8847683007) for shares of its common
stock, and extended the expiration date of the Exchange Offer.
The Company also said it intends to delist the TMEDS from the New
York Stock Exchange following settlement of the Exchange Offer.

The Company amended the pricing terms of the Exchange Offer to
reflect a new Exchange Ratio and averaging period.  Under the new
pricing terms, subject to the terms and conditions of the Exchange
Offer, each holder of TMEDS may tender all or a portion of such
holder's TMEDS in exchange for (i) 5.3879 shares of Common Stock
plus (ii) a number of shares of Common Stock equal to $1.25
divided by the Weighted Average Price, subject to a maximum of
5.8879 shares of Common Stock and a minimum of 5.7004 shares of
Common Stock per unit of TMEDS validly tendered and accepted for
exchange.  The Exchange Ratio will be rounded to the nearest
fourth decimal place.  Fractional shares will not be issued in the
Exchange Offer and holders will receive the cash value of any
fractional shares due to them, which cash value shall be
calculated by multiplying the fractional shares to be received by
the Weighted Average Price of our Common Stock.

The Company also amended the terms of the Exchange Offer to
clarify that the new averaging period over which the Weighted
Average Price will be determined will begin on June 16, 2014, and
end on June 20, 2014.  The Company will calculate the Exchange
Ratio on the Pricing Date and will announce it in a news release
issued prior to 9:00 a.m., New York City time, on the next
business day, June 23, 2014.

The Company further amended the Exchange Offer to extend the
expiration date to 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on June 24,
2014, unless further extended or earlier terminated by the
Company.  The Exchange Offer was previously scheduled to expire at
11:59 p.m., New York City time, on June 18, 2014.

The Company expects to file an application on Form 25 to notify
the Securities and Exchange Commission of its withdrawal of the
TMEDS from listing on the NYSE following settlement of the
Exchange Offer.  The Company expects the delisting of its TMEDS to
become effective ten days thereafter.  The Company does not intend
to re-list the TMEDS on another securities exchange, but expects
that the TMEDS will be quoted on one or more over-the-counter
markets.

The Company will continue to maintain the listing of its Common
Stock on the NYSE and TSX.

The Company filed with the SEC  an amended tender offer statement
on Schedule TO to reflect the amendments, a copy of which is
available for free at http://is.gd/fHyZ4a

As reported by the TCR on Aug. 14, 2012, Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services lowered its long-term corporate credit rating on Denver-
based molybdenum miner Thompson Creek Metals Co. to 'CCC+' from
'B-'.  "These rating actions follow Thompson Creek's announcement
of weaker production and higher cost expectations through next
year," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Donald Marleau.

In the May 9, 2012, edition of the TCR, Moody's Investors Service
downgraded Thompson Creek Metals Company Inc.'s Corporate Family
Rating (CFR) and probability of default rating to Caa1 from B3.
Thompson Creek's Caa1 CFR reflects its concentration in
molybdenum, relatively small size, heavy reliance currently on two
mines, and the need for favorable volume and price trends in order
to meet its increasingly aggressive capital expenditure
requirements over the next several years.

TRIBUNE PUBLISHING: Moody's Assigns 'B1' Corporate Family Rating
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned Tribune Publishing Company a B1
Corporate Family Rating and a B1-PD Probability of Default Rating.
Moody's also assigned B1 to the company's proposed $350 million
senior secured term loan. Proceeds from the senior secured term
loan are expected to fund a $275 million special dividend to the
parent, plus transaction related fees and expenses. Moody's
assigned an SGL - 2 Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating and the
rating outlook is stable. These rating actions are subject to
review of final documentation and no meaningful change in
conditions of the proposed transaction as represented to Moody's.

Assigned:

Issuer: Tribune Publishing Company

Corporate Family Rating (CFR): Assigned B1

Probability of Default Rating (PDR): Assigned B1-PD

$350 million Sr Secured Term Loan: Assigned B1, LGD4 -- 52%

Speculative Grade Liquidity (SGL) Rating: SGL -- 2

Outlook Actions:

Issuer: Tribune Publishing Company

Outlook is Stable

Ratings Rationale

Tribune Publishing's B1 Corporate Family Rating incorporates the
persistent pressure on the company's newspaper print advertising
revenue and its moderately high leverage partially offset by the
leading market positions and overall scale of its publications as
well as online properties and by management's focus on cost
reductions. Revenue is exposed to cyclical client spending on
advertising and to changing consumer media usage away from print.
Debt-to-EBITDA leverage (3.5x at closing incorporating Moody's
standard adjustments) is moderately high for the newspaper
industry which would restrict the company's financial flexibility
in the event of an acceleration in the decline of print ad demand
or extended economic weakness in key markets. Moody's expect
newspaper publishers will continue to face growing competition
with technology-driven changes in media consumption. Shifts by
advertisers away from print publications represents the primary
risk and creates persistent pressure on revenue and margins. Under
Moody's base case scenario, Moody's expect Tribune Publishing will
generate mid single digit percentage free cash flow-to-debt ratios
over the next 12 months factoring in low to mid single digit
percentage overall revenue declines at least partially offset by
additional cost reductions. Moody's believes Tribune Publishing
will benefit from the launch of website redesigns in the remaining
seven markets in 2014 (the Los Angeles launch was completed in
May), the roll out of its all access consumer model and digital
only subscription programs, and double digit percentage revenue
growth for digital marketing services, but Moody's expect these
gains will not fully offset mid to high single digit percentage
declines in its print ad revenue. Although the company has
diversified revenue streams with preprints, commercial delivery,
direct marketing and other services accounting for roughly one-
third of FY2013 revenue, the majority of this revenue is tied to
declining demand for printed materials. There is some geographic
concentration risk given the majority of total revenue comes from
Los Angeles and Chicago; however, this risk is somewhat mitigated
by the super regional readership of these publications. Improving
the company's expected EBITDA margins of 9% pro forma for the
transaction and growing free cash flow levels to support debt
reduction and offset earning declines is important to maintaining
the B1 CFR. Liquidity is good with an initial $50 million or more
of unrestricted balance sheet cash and $65 million to $115 million
of availability under its proposed $140 million ABL revolver. The
absence of significant debt maturities until 2019 when the ABL
revolver commitment expires provides the company a few years to
execute its plans to stabilize revenue and continue the transition
of its print-based businesses to digital platforms.

The stable rating outlook incorporates Moody's expectation for
continued mid to high single digit percentage declines in
newspaper print advertising revenue reflecting the shift to
digital media consumption and online advertising platforms.
Moody's expect the company to cut costs as needed to maintain
EBITDA margins and generate mid single digit percentage free cash
flow-to-debt ratios which allows for additional debt reduction and
provides some cushion to the negative effect of projected revenue
declines over the next 12-18 months. The outlook incorporates
Moody's expectation that Tribune Publishing's markets will largely
mirror the U.S. economy and will continue to grow modestly and
that debt-to-EBITDA will improve but remain above 3.0x (including
Moody's standard adjustments) over the next 12 months. The outlook
also reflects Moody's expectation that the company will maintain
at least good liquidity and that management will reduce debt
balances with excess cash if needed to keep leverage in line with
the B1 corporate family rating. The outlook allows for tuck-in
acquisitions and increases in quarterly dividends to the extent
revenue and EBITDA increase, but it does not include significant
debt financed acquisitions or an acceleration in the decline of
demand for print advertising in key markets.

Ongoing revenue declines not matched by cost reductions, economic
weakness in one or more key markets, or debt financed acquisitions
resulting in debt-to-EBITDA increasing above 3.75x (including
Moody's standard adjustments) could result in a downgrade. Ratings
could also be downgraded if liquidity deteriorates resulting in
cash balances plus revolver availability being sustained below $75
million or if free cash flow-to-debt ratios are expected to remain
below 5% (including Moody's standard adjustments). Revenue
stability, improving EBITDA margins, and lower debt-to-EBITDA
ratios that are expected to be sustained below 2.75x (including
Moody's standard adjustments) could lead to an upgrade. Tribune
Publishing would also need to maintain at least good liquidity
including free cash flow-to-debt ratios in the low double digit
percentage range or more.

Tribune Publishing, headquartered in Chicago, IL, operates the
second largest newspaper company in the U.S. serving eight major
markets with ten daily newspapers, including the Los Angeles Times
and the Chicago Tribune, as well as with digital media properties
and niche publications. The company is a subsidiary of Tribune
Company which emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection at the
end of 2012. Certain creditors prior to Chapter 11 filing are now
shareholders with funds of Oaktree Capital Management, Angelo,
Gordon & Company, and JPMorgan Chase being the largest
shareholders and controlling the board of directors. During the
four years in bankruptcy, Tribune Company invested in
consolidating printing operations and achieved significant cost
reductions. The company intends to complete its planned spin-off
from its parent in a tax free transaction with shareholders of
Tribune Company receiving proportionate ownership interests in
publicly traded shares of Tribune Publishing. Revenue pro forma
for the spin-off totaled $1.8 billion for the 12 months ended
March 30, 2014.

The principal methodology used in this rating was the Global
Publishing 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.


TRIBUNE PUBLISHING: S&P Assigns 'B+' CCR; Outlook Stable
--------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned Chicago, Ill.-based
newspaper publisher Tribune Publishing Co. a 'B+' corporate credit
rating.  The rating outlook is stable.

At the same time, S&P assigned the company's proposed $350 million
term loan due 2021 its 'B+' issue-level rating (the same as the
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.  In
addition, S&P assigned the company's proposed $140 million ABL due
2019 a 'BB' issue-level rating (two notches higher than the 'B+'
corporate credit rating on the company), with a recovery rating of
'1', indicating S&P's expectation for very high (90% to 100%)
recovery for lenders in the event of a payment default.

The company will use proceeds from the term loan to pay a $275
million special dividend to Tribune Co. and provide cash for
general corporate purposes.  S&P expects the revolving credit
facility to be undrawn at closing.

The 'B+' corporate credit rating on Tribune Publishing reflects
S&P's assessment of the business risk profile as "vulnerable" (as
per our criteria) and its financial risk profile as "significant."

"Our assessment of the business risk profile as "vulnerable" is
based on our expectation that the pace of newspaper print
advertising revenue declines will continue at the current rate for
the foreseeable future as news consumption and advertising shift
to digital media," said credit analyst Hal Diamond.
"Notwithstanding Tribune's position as the second-largest
newspaper publisher in the U.S. based on Sunday circulation, it is
exposed to secular trends of declining newspaper advertising
revenues and readership."

The rating outlook is stable, reflecting S&P's expectation that
the company can maintain debt leverage between 3x and 4x over the
intermediate term.  S&P believes the company can maintain this
debt leverage despite the secular pressure on newspaper
advertising and circulation as debt reduction and cost reduction
offsets potential weakness in operating performance.

Downside scenario

S&P could lower our rating to 'B' if it become convinced that
adjusted debt leverage will rise above 4x over the intermediate
term.  This scenario could occur if the trend of ad revenue and
circulation declines accelerates, necessitating ongoing
restructuring charges and contributing to shrinking EBITDA, EBITDA
margin, and discretionary cash flow.  S&P could also consider a
downgrade if management decides to pursue high-priced
acquisitions, sizable share repurchases, or greater-than-
anticipated dividends.

Upside scenario

It is highly unlikely that S&P would raise our rating to 'BB-'.
S&P would need to be convinced that long-term structural trends
have stabilized for the long term, or if it becomes apparent that
growth in digital revenues will significantly offset print revenue
declines, which S&P regards as unlikely.


TW TELECOM: S&P Puts 'BB' CCR on CreditWatch Negative
-----------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it placed its ratings,
including the 'BB' corporate credit rating, on Littleton, Colo.-
based telecommunications provider TW Telecom Inc. on CreditWatch
with negative implications.

"The CreditWatch placement follows the company's announcement that
TW Telecom has agreed to be acquired by Level 3 Communications
Inc. in a cash and stock transaction valued at about $7.3 billion,
which includes the assumption of around $1.6 billion of TW
Telecom's net debt," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Allyn
Arden.

The deal is subject to regulatory approvals and is expected to
close in the fourth quarter of 2014.

"We believe that the acquisition could weaken TW Telecom's credit
measures, including adjusted leverage, which was 3.1x as of
March 31, 2014.  Our base-case forecast assumed that leverage
would increase modestly over the next couple of years because of
market expansion activities, although it would still be supportive
of the "significant" financial risk assessment.  S&P estimates
that the combined company's leverage will be over 4x, which
includes about $1.6 billion of TW Telecom's net debt, about
$10.5 billion of debt at Level 3, and the $1.4 billion cash
component of the equity purchase price.  S&P has not included
potential cost savings in its EBITDA calculation, but would assess
the level and likelihood of these synergies in its CreditWatch
review.

S&P believes that a downgrade, if any, would be at least one
notch, depending on the ultimate rating outcome for Level 3.  S&P
would expect to resolve the CreditWatch listing when the
transaction closes in the fourth quarter of 2014.


VANTIV LLC: Moody's Lowers Corporate Family Rating to 'Ba3'
-----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has downgraded Vantiv, LLC's corporate
family and probability of default ratings ("CFR" and "PDR",
respectively) to Ba3 from Ba2 and B1-PD from Ba3-PD, respectively.
In addition, Moody's changed the provisional (P)Ba3 ratings on the
credit facilities, which were assigned on May 22, 2014, to
definitive Ba3 ratings in connection with the closing of Vantiv's
acquisition of Mercury Payments Systems ("Mercury"). The senior
secured credit facilities now consist of a $425 million revolving
credit facility due 2019, $2.05 billion Term Loan A due 2019, and
$1.4 billion Term Loan B due 2021.

This rating action concludes the review initiated on May 13, 2014,
following Vantiv's announcement of an agreement to acquire Mercury
Payment Systems for $1.65 billion.

Rating Rationale

The downgrade reflects elevated debt levels arising from the
acquisition of Mercury, which will nearly double reported debt to
over $3.4 billion. Moody's expects that Vantiv's adjusted debt to
EBITDA (over 5 times on a trailing basis) will be reduced to about
4 times by the end of 2015. Although spending for acquisitions and
M&A will likely moderate over the next year until Mercury is fully
integrated, Moody's believes Vantiv will continue to invest to
protect its strong market position in a potentially consolidating
and rapidly evolving payment landscape.

At the same time, the Ba3 CFR considers Vantiv's highly scalable
processing platform, which helps to drive high profit margins
(nearly 50% adjusted EBITDA margins on net revenues) and
predictable free cash flow of more than $300 million annually.
Revenue stability is supported by the client referral network of
Fifth Third Bancorp and multi-year contracts with merchants and
financial institutions.

The stable outlook reflects Moody's view that Vantiv will generate
at least mid-single digit annual revenue growth and steady cash
flow. Operating performance will likely be buoyed by a modestly
growing U.S. economy, an expanding sales network and merchant
base, and the ongoing shift from cash/checks to electronic card
payments.

The Ba3 CFR could be upgraded if adjusted debt to EBITDA falls to
the low 3 times range, combined with an increase in market share
through organic revenue growth without pressuring operating
margins. The ratings could be downgraded with declines in revenue
and profits, increased customer churn, poor execution, or
heightened competition. In addition, negative rating pressure
could arise from higher financial leverage (in excess of 5x on a
Moody's adjusted basis) for an extended period of time.

Issuer: Vantiv

Outlook Action:

Outlook, Changed To Stable From Rating Under Review

Affirmation:

Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating, SGL-1

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

Vantiv, LLC, with over $1.3 billion of projected annual net
revenue, is a payment solutions provider servicing financial
institutions' and retailers' credit card, debit card, merchant and
private label programs primarily in North America. Vantiv is the
3rd largest merchant acquirer in the U.S.


WAVE HOLDCO: Moody's Assigns Caa1 Rating to $150MM Senior Notes
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a Caa1 rating to the proposed
$150 million Senior PIK Toggle Notes of Wave Holdco, LLC (Wave
Holdco), a newly created holding company which owns 100% of
WaveDivision Holdings, LLC (Wave). The company plans to use
proceeds to fund a dividend to its shareholders, Oak Hill Capital
Partners, GI Partners, and management.

Moody's also changed the outlook to negative and upgraded ratings
on Wave's secured bank debt and unsecured bonds due to the
increase in junior capital created by the HoldCo bonds. Assuming
close of the transaction as proposed, Moody's will withdraw the B2
Corporate Family Rating (CFR) from Wave, and assign a B2 rating to

Outlook, Changed to Negative from Stable

Ratings Rationale

The outlook change reflects a more aggressive than expected fiscal
policy, which affords the company less financial flexibility to
manage its growth investment. The transaction increases leverage a
full turn to approximately 6.9 times debt-to-EBITDA from 5.9 times
(based on results for trailing twelve months through March 31).
The added interest burden, concurrent with plans to increase
growth oriented capital expenditures, will pressure free cash
flow, which could be slightly negative in 2015. Furthermore, the
willingness to take on higher leverage to fund a dividend while
also boosting capital expenditures suggests a more aggressive
financial profile than Moody's anticipated at the time of the
original rating in July 2012, which assumed the company would
focus on growth rather than shareholder returns for at least the
next few years. Nevertheless, Moody's believes the company has
enhanced value through organic growth and acquisitions over the
past several years, supported by year over year EBITDA growth of
about 19% in 2013 and 17% in 2012, with expectations for high
single digit or low double digit EBITDA growth in 2014 (growth
figures include EBITDA generated from acquisitions). The increase
in EBITDA facilitated a decline in leverage to just under 6 times
from almost 7 times at the time of the original rating, and
Moody's believes the company could achieve leverage of about 6
times by year end 2015. These factors support the B2 CFR.

The high leverage (almost 7 times pro forma for the proposed
transaction) and expectations for weak free cash flow position
Wave weakly at the B2 CFR. This financial profile poses risk for a
small company in a capital intensive, competitive environment, but
the high EBITDA margin (mid 40% range) and relative stability of
the revenue stream enables the company to better manage the high
leverage. Also, Moody's expects continued EBITDA growth to
facilitate a decline in leverage, recognizing the company's track
record of leverage reduction. Wave's high quality, fiber rich
network supports the potential for continued cash flow growth from
the high speed data product and the commercial business, as well
as asset value.

The negative outlook incorporates the potential for a downgrade.
Any allocation of cash or increase in debt to fund distributions
prior to leverage falling to 6 times debt-to-EBITDA would likely
result in a downgrade. Sustained negative free cash flow,
deterioration of the liquidity profile, material weakening of
subscriber trends, or acquisitions that significantly slowed the
trajectory to lower leverage would also likely result in a
negative rating action.

Moody's would likely stabilize the outlook with expectations for
Wave to sustain leverage around 6 times debt-to-EBITDA and EBITDA
margins in excess of 40% and to maintain an adequate or better
liquidity profile. A stable outlook would also require
expectations for continued growth in customers and in revenue per
homes passed. An upgrade is much less likely given the negative
outlook and the magnitude of improvement in metrics required to
sustain a higher rating. The lack of scale, sponsor ownership, and
weaker than peers TPE and revenue per homes passed metrics also
constrains the rating. However, Moody's would consider an upgrade
with progress toward and a commitment to maintaining leverage
below 4 times debt-to-EBITDA and free cash flow to debt in the
high single digits. An upgrade would also require maintenance of
good liquidity.

The principal methodology used in this rating was the Global Pay
Television - Cable and Direct-to-Home Satellite Operators
published in April 2013. Other methodologies used include Loss
Given Default for Speculative-Grade Non-Financial Companies in the
U.S., Canada and EMEA published in June 2009.

WEST AIRPORT PALMS: Hires Integra Realty as Valuation Expert
------------------------------------------------------------
West Airport Palms Business Park, LLC seeks authorization from the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Florida to
employ Integra Realty Resources Miami/Palm Beach as valuation and
feasibility expert for the Debtor, nunc pro tunc to Jan. 8, 2014.

The Debtor seeks ratification of the employment of Anthony
Graziano and Integra Realty Resources Miami/Palm Beach as the
Debtor's expert witness on feasibility and valuation.

The trial concerned the prima facie confirmability of the Debtor's
First Plan, specifically with respect to the proposed interest
rate to be paid to the Debtor's primary secured creditor, WAP
Holdings, LLC ("WAP"), as well as the feasibility of the First
Plan.  The Debtor disclosed Mr. Graziano as its expert witness
with respect to feasibility and valuation on Jan. 29, 2014.  Mr.
Graziano subsequently provided crucial testimony with respect to
the First Plan. Mr. Graziano's efforts assisted the Debtor in
prevailing at the trial, and the Court ultimately confirmed the
Debtor's Third Amended Plan of Reorganization.

Although Mr. Graziano's role in the case as an expert witness was
disclosed at the outset and the services he rendered have already
been performed, given that Mr. Graziano will be paid from the
estate, the Debtor believes it is appropriate to file this
application to employ Mr. Graziano and Integra.

Integra will be paid a general retainer of $4,500 and any
additional sums as may be allowed by the Court based on the time
spent and services rendered, the result achieved, the difficulty
and complexity encountered, and other appropriate factors.

Mr. Graziano, senior managing director of Integra, 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.

WEST AIRPORT PALMS: Wants GlassRatner as Interest Rate Expert
-------------------------------------------------------------
West Airport Palms Business Park, LLC seeks authorization from the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Florida to
employ GlassRatner Advisory & Capital Group, LLC as interest rate
expert, nunc pro tunc to Jan. 30, 2014.

The case involved a two and one-half day trial relating to the
Debtor's First Amended Plan of Reorganization.  The trial
concerned the prima facie confirmability of the Debtor's First
Plan, specifically with respect to the proposed interest rate to
be paid to the Debtor's primary secured creditor, WAP Holdings,
LLC ("WAP"), as well as the feasibility of the First Plan.  The
Debtor disclosed Mr. Howard as its expert witness with respect to
the interest rate on Jan. 29, 2014.

Mr. Howard subsequently provided testimony with respect to the
First Plan, and also assisted the Debtor in preparing for the
cross-examination of WAP's interest rate expert, Franklind Lea.
Mr. Howard's efforts assisted the Debtor in prevailing at the
trial, and the Court ultimately confirmed the Debtor's Third
Amended Plan of Reorganization.

Although Mr. Howard's role in the case as an expert witness was
disclosed at the outset and the services he rendered have already
been performed, given that Mr. Howard will be paid from the
estate, the Debtor believes it is appropriate to file this
application to employ Mr. Howard.

WILLIAMS COS: S&P Lowers CCR to 'BB+'; Outlook Stable
-----------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it has taken the following
rating actions on the corporate family of U.S. diversified
midstream energy company The Williams Cos. Inc.:

   -- S&P lowered its corporate credit rating on Williams to 'BB+'
      from 'BBB'.  The outlook is stable.

   -- S&P also lowered its issue-level rating on Williams' senior
      unsecured debt to 'BB+' from 'BBB-' and assigned a '3'
      recovery rating to this debt, and S&P lowered its rating on
      the subordinated debt to 'BB-' from 'BB+' and assigned a
      recovery rating of '6'.

   -- S&P placed the 'BB+' corporate credit rating and senior
      unsecured ratings on Access Midstream Partners L.P. on
      CreditWatch with positive implications.

   -- S&P affirmed the 'BBB' corporate credit rating and the 'A-2'
      short-term rating on Williams Partners L.P. (WPZ) and the
      'BBB' ratings on its operating subsidiaries Transcontinental
      Gas Pipe Line Co. LLC (Transco) and Northwest Pipeline LLC.
      The outlook is stable.

"Williams' intention to become a pure-play general partnership
upon completion of this transaction results in a weaker credit
profile," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Michael Grande.
"Although Williams has heretofore been largely reliant on
distributions from WPZ, it still owned some assets directly.  Now,
given its strategy as a pure-play general partnership, it will be
fully reliant on subordinated distributions from WPZ to service
its debt obligations."

Furthermore, a significant portion of these cash flows come from
incentive distributions rights that add risk because they
essentially represent a leveraged cash flow stream that can
increase or decrease disproportionately as WPZ changes its
distribution rate.  With its transition to a general partnership
holding company structure, S&P believes Williams will be more
likely to finance large, organic spending projects at WPZ rather
than at Williams, which in S&P's opinion will provide less direct
asset coverage for Williams' creditors.

S&P has reviewed the transaction and do not expect Williams'
stand-alone financial leverage to increase materially as the
company seeks financing for the acquisition.

At the WPZ level, S&P believes the partnership's pro forma credit
profile will benefit from the increased scale and diversity that
the acquisition will bring, but that the benefit will not be
sufficiently material to warrant a positive rating action.  The
partnership will enhance its competitive position in emerging
shale plays in the Marcellus and Utica regions and extend its
reach into new plays such as the Barnett, Haynesville, and
Niobrara regions.

S&P views Williams' stand-alone liquidity as "adequate," as
defined in its criteria.  For the next 12 months, S&P expects
Williams' sources of liquidity to exceed uses by about 1.8x.
Although this ratio would normally warrant a "strong" liquidity
assessment, Williams' liquidity is largely dependent on upstream
distributions from WPZ, which has adequate liquidity.
Furthermore, qualitative factors suggest an "adequate" assessment.

S&P views WPZ's combined pro forma liquidity also as "adequate."
For the next 12 months, S&P expects liquidity sources to exceed
uses by about 1.2x.

S&P expects to resolve the positive CreditWatch on Access
Midstream at the close of the proposed merger with WPZ, currently
expected at the end of 2014 or beginning of 2015.  S&P expects to
raise its corporate credit rating on Access Midstream to 'BBB', in
line with that on WPZ.

The stable rating outlook on Williams reflects S&P's expectation
that it will become a pure-play general partner with relatively
low financial leverage and consistent distribution payments from
the larger and more geographically diverse WPZ.  S&P could lower
the ratings on Williams if its stand-alone debt-to-EBITDA ratio is
consistently above 2x, and it does not have a clear path of
deleveraging.  S&P could also lower the ratings if it lowered the
ratings on WPZ.  S&P do not envision raising the ratings on
Williams unless it also raised the ratings on WPZ.

The stable rating outlook on WPZ reflects S&P's view that the
combined partnership will fund its sizable organic spending
program in a disciplined manner while maintaining adequate
liquidity and financial leverage of about 4x.  Higher ratings are
unlikely without increased business diversity, consistent
distribution coverage of at least 1.2x, and a notably more
conservative financial policy.  S&P could lower its ratings on WPZ
if lower gathering volumes and NGL prices hurt cash flow or if the
partnership does not execute its growth plans favorably such that
consolidated debt to EBITDA remains at more than 4.75x.


WORLD SURVEILLANCE: New Chairman Issues Letter to Shareholders
--------------------------------------------------------------
World Surveillance Group Inc. distributed a letter to the
Company's shareholders from its Chairman (US-RET) Lt. Colonel Drew
West.  Lt. Colonel West was appointed Chairman of WSGI on June 5,
2014.

Dear Shareholders,

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you for your ongoing
commitment to WSGI.  I also wanted to let you know how excited I
am to work with a company that has been a partner of mine for the
past couple years and with a management team that I have so much
admiration for.  The accomplishments made by the team in the past
few years have been impressive.  That being said, we have a
tremendous amount of work to do in an effort to reach our goals
and improve our Company's performance.  I am confident that my
years of military experience combined with my success in the
private sector will compliment those of the management team so
that we can work together for the growth and success of WSGI.

I am pleased to report that we have several pro-active initiatives
related to the commercialization of the Argus One airship.  As
identified on WSGI's website, the Argus One is undergoing several
operational assessments by members and associates of the Ohio
Lighter Than Air UAS Consortium.  The Consortium is presently
focused on developing a new propulsion system and a set of Argus
One-specific sensor and payload options to enhance its performance
and marketability.  So far, the Consortium consists of industry
partners and research entities and supporting associates.  By
fourth quarter this year, we believe the academic team of the
Consortium should be on-line with at least one or more major
university research departments committed to contributing to the
project.   Various tests and flight demonstrations will likely
continue through 2014.

Concurrently, WSGI leadership is executing a market evaluation as
to the relevancy of the intended applications of the Argus One,
and new possibilities for untethered lighter-than-air UAS in
regards to intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance,
communications, data distribution and cyber security.  We have
already had several productive conversations with representatives
from the worlds of business, government and academia, including
subject matter experts on unmanned stratospheric operations.
These discussions should issue in an updated business case
document for viable military and commercial applications by end of
the third quarter 2014 that will further clarify and focus our on-
going sales efforts for the Argus One.

In regards to our GTC business, GTC is witnessing a very strong
and increasing global demand for its mobile satellite services
(MSS) products.  The number of customer transactions for MSS
product orders has increased by approximately 525% for the first
five months of 2014 compared to the same period in 2013 and non-
related party revenue from sales of MSS products has increased by
over 945% for the first five months of 2014 compared to the same
period in 2013.

We have also seen significant growth in sales of Globalstar
related products, specifically simplex airtime which has seen an
increase of more than 900% for the first five months of 2014
compared to the same period in 2013.  This is due primarily to GTC
having secured a number of very profitable tracking contracts
during the past year, some of which were awarded directly as a
result of GTC's advanced mapping portal, GTCTrack.  This portal is
proving to be very popular with customers that require a single
platform for monitoring and tracking a wide range of GPS satellite
tracking devices.

During late 2013, GTC began selling a small number of its products
on Amazon.com, with the majority of products being fulfilled by
Amazon directly to customers.  Sales through Amazon have helped to
contribute towards the significant jump in GTC revenue during 2014
to date. Amazon.com shipped GTC products to more than 550
customers in the first five months of 2014.

The significant jump in our recent MSS revenue is a result of a
large global market for the products we sell.  GTC has a worldwide
customer base as the majority of the products sold by us can
operate anywhere in the world.  We have achieved these results
with very limited resources and personnel.  I believe we can
significantly increase our MSS revenues going forward by expanding
our website product range, increasing investment in Google
AdWords, expanding our range of products on Amazon.com, opening an
identical store on Amazon.ca and recruiting additional personnel
globally to pursue new business opportunities and address the
increasing number of inquiries we receive 24 hours a day from all
over the world.  Additionally, we intend to aggressively pursue
significant new tracking business opportunities that have been
presented to us that could prove highly profitable going forward.

As of June 5, 2014, WSGI completed a share exchange resulting in
our ownership of 10 million shares of Series D Convertible
Preferred Stock of Drone Aviation Holding Corp. (OTC.PK: DRNE).
We will hold this valuable asset for future business initiatives.

In addition to the re-focus on the various sectors of our
business, WSGI is also committed to the review of and improvement
in our balance sheet and the pursuit of acquisition opportunities
beneficial to the Company.  This is an exciting time to be at WSGI
and I look forward to serving the shareholders and working with my
fellow WSGI teammates to reward your long-standing loyalty.

                         Bankruptcy Warning

"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.

YMCA OF MILWAUKEE: Can Use Cash Collateral Until June 27
--------------------------------------------------------
The Young Men's Christian Association of Metropolitan Milwaukee,
Inc. and YMCA Youth Leadership Academy, Inc., ask the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Wisconsin to approve
a stipulation with BMO Harris Bank N.A., successor-by-merger to
M&I Marshall & Ilsley Bank, under which the Bank allowed the
Debtors to use the cash collateral securing their prepetition
indebtedness.  The parties agreed that as of the Petition Date,
the Debtors are liable to the Bank in an amount of not less than
$3 million, which sum constitutes an allowable, unavoidable claim
of the Bank against the Debtors.

The Stipulation authorizes the Debtors to use cash collateral only
on an interim basis, ending no later than June 27, 2014.

A separate stipulation provides the Bank with interim adequate
protection for the Debtors' use of cash collateral securing the
line of credit debt.  Besides the standard forms of adequate
protection afforded to a lender with an interest in cash
collateral -- such as replacement liens in the same categories of
collateral, proof of insurance, a cash budget, reporting
requirements, a super-priority administrative claim, and general
reservation of the lender's right to seek further relief -- the
Debtors have also agreed to provide the Bank with a lien on
certain real estate assets owned by the Milwaukee Y, all of which
are currently unencumbered.  Under the Stipulation, the Real
Property Liens will not function as general cross-
collateralization for prepetition obligations owed to the Bank,
but merely as a source for protecting the Bank against any
diminution of its interest in the Debtors' cash collateral, valued
as of the Petition Date.

The Debtors and the Bank further entered into a third stipulation
lifting the automatic stay to permit the Bank to take any actions
necessary to cause the tax exempt bonds acceleration and the
taxable notes acceleration.

A full-text copy of the Cash Collateral Stipulation with Budget is
available at http://bankrupt.com/misc/YMCAcashstip.pdf

YMCA Milwaukee, which has more than 100,000 members using its
centers and camps, plans to sell a majority of its owned real
estate to help pay down $29 million in debt.

YMCA Milwaukee estimated $10 million to $50 million in both assets
and liabilities.  YMCA Academy estimated $100,000 to $500,000 in
both assets and liabilities.  The formal schedules of assets and
liabilities are due June 18, 2014.

The Debtors are seeking joint administration of their Chapter 11
cases for procedural purposes.  The cases are assigned to Judge
Susan V. Kelley.

The Debtors have tapped Olivier H. Reiher, Esq., and Mark L. Metz,
Esq., at Leverson & Metz, S.C., in Milwaukee, as counsel.


YMCA OF MILWAUKEE: Seeks to Assume Membership Agreements
--------------------------------------------------------
The Young Men's Christian Association of Metropolitan Milwaukee,
Inc., seeks authority from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Eastern District of Wisconsin to assume multiple executory
contracts in a single omnibus motion.

In particular, the Debtor is asking that it not be required to
provide any advance notice to approximately 37,000 signatory
members that the Debtor intends to assume all of their membership
agreements, because any member who was inclined for any reason to
oppose that assumption already has -- and will continue to have --
the right to terminate his or her contractual relationship with
the Debtor by means that are much more expedient than opposing the
motion to assume.  Permitting the Debtor to assume all of its
Membership Agreements as a single omnibus motion is an important
way to preserve the Debtor's monetary and personnel resources, the
Debtor states in court papers.

* Appeal on Consummated Plan Isn't Moot, Circuit Rules
------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that Wells Fargo Bank NA drew a road map for disappointed
creditors who don't want an appeal from plan approval to be
dismissed as moot once the plan is implemented.  According to the
report, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in San
Francisco ruled on June 10 that the appeal wasn't moot under the
doctrine of equitable mootness even though the plan had been
consummated.

The case is Wells Fargo Bank NA v. Loop 76 LLC (In re Loop 76 LP),
12-60021, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit (San
Francisco).


* High Court Says Inherited IRAs Fair Game During Bankruptcy
------------------------------------------------------------
Law360 reported that inherited individual retirement accounts are
not protected assets that can be shielded from creditors during a
bankruptcy case, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled.  According to the
report, the high court issued a unanimous ruling, affirming a
Seventh Circuit panel's opinion that the inherited accounts are
not covered under a "retirement funds" exemption generally
observed in insolvency cases, rejecting arguments by a Wisconsin
woman, Heidi Heffron-Clark, who declared bankruptcy after
inheriting a $300,000 IRA from her deceased mother.


* Pittsburgh Lawyer Ducks Judge Who Called Him ?Sociopath'
----------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that a frustrated bankruptcy judge who called a lawyer a
"sociopath," has stepped aside from handling disciplinary
proceedings against the attorney.

According to the report, in April, Chief Bankruptcy Judge Jeffery
A. Deller in Pittsburgh called for a districtwide investigation
into the conduct of bankruptcy lawyer Jason J. Mazzei, who he said
has been the subject of client complaints.  Mazzei quickly sought
to have U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Thomas P. Agresti removed from the
investigation, alleging that the judge was biased against him,
citing an instance in May 2013 when Judge Agresti called him a
"sociopath," the report related.

The case is In re Matters Involving the Professional Conduct of
Jason J. Mazzei, 14-205, U.S. Bankruptcy Court, Western District
Pennsylvania (Pittsburgh).


* Stay Violation Doesn't Require Reconveying Property, Judge Says
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that an individual who eventually filed Chapter 13 six
times proposed a novel theory for recovering damages from a bank
unaware of the automatic stay. The theory failed to persuade U.S.
District Judge Robert C. Jones in Reno, Nevada, the report said.

Judge Jones said the bank had no liability for foreclosing because
it wasn't willful given lack of knowledge of the new filing, the
report related.

The case is Bishara v. OneWest Bank FSB (In re Bishara), 14-00082,
U.S. District Court, District of Nevada (Reno).


* Argentina Defiant Against Supreme Court on Bond Payments
----------------------------------------------------------
Jonathan Gilbert and Peter Eavis, writing for The New York Times'
DealBook, reported that the Argentine government said that it had
started to take steps to circumvent a United States Supreme Court
order to avoid a technical default.

According to the report, Axel Kicillof, the economy minister, said
that the Argentine government would pay bondholders of
restructured debt under Argentine legislation.  To recall, a
majority of bondholders from Argentina's $95 billion default in
2001 entered into debt exchanges in 2005 and 2010, taking haircuts
of about 70 percent.  But a small percentage of what Mr. Kicillof
refers to as "vulture funds" have held out for full payment, the
report noted.


* FBOP Can't Grab $265M Bank Tax Refunds, FDIC Says
---------------------------------------------------
Law360 reported that the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. sued FBOP
Corp. in Illinois federal court claiming the now-shuttered
financial company cannot claim $265 million in tax refunds
generated by several failed subsidiary banks because the banks
earned the income and incurred the losses that generated refunds.

According to the report, the FDIC, which is receiver for the seven
banks, says FBOP told the government in 2008 and 2009 that the
banks' deferred tax assets, including their right to receive
refunds, were their sole property, but changed its mind when the
banks failed in 2009. The agency wants the court to issue a
judgment stating that the refunds belong to the banks.

The case is Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. v. FBOP Corp. et al.,
case number 1:14-cv-04307 in the U.S. District Court for the
Northern District of Illinois.




                             *********

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.
