assets, $3.81 million in total liabilities, all current, and
$109,000 in total stockholders' equity.

"We are very pleased with our results for the 1st quarter with net
revenue up 50% to $1.7M," said President and CEO, J. Michael
Wolfe.  "Retail channel revenues increased 273%, to $630,000 in
the quarter, reflecting significant increases at Amazon.com and
new sales at Sam's Clubs and The Home Depot.

"Our Direct-to-Consumer channel increased 32%, representing the
third consecutive quarter of accelerating sales growth in this
important channel.  A critical metric we watch is sales of our
high margin seed kit and accessory items, which increased 77% year
over year and reflects the growth in our installed base of
AeroGardens.  Sales of AeroGardens were up 37% year over year.
Our bottom line results, which reflected both our seasonally
lowest sales quarter of the year and our investment in future
growth, were largely consistent with our internal projections.

"I'm extremely pleased with the progress our team has made in
preparation for this fall selling season as we strategically
increase our presence or engage in tests with many of the world's
leading retailers, including Amazon, BJ's, Costco, The Home Depot,
Meijer, Sam's Club, True Value, Walmart and others.  Container
loads of AeroGardens from our revised network of supply chain
partners are currently being manufactured, marking the completion
of the goal we set to lower costs, improve quality and tighten our
supply chain."

AEROVISION HOLDINGS: Aug. 26 Hearing Bid to Access Premises
-----------------------------------------------------------
The Bankruptcy Court will convene a hearing on Aug. 26, 2014, at
9:30 a.m., to consider Aerovision Holdings 1 Corp.'s motion for
access to premises located at 3139 Jet Center Terrace, Fort
Pierce, Florida to secure and remove assets of the estate.

The Debtor has requested that the Court hear the matter on an
emergency basis because Ft. Pierce FBO, LLC has filed a motion for
relief from the automatic stay to resume eviction and related
proceedings against Air 1 Flight Support, Inc.

According to the Debtor, Ft. Pierce, in its motion, argued that
assets of the estate have been abandoned when, in fact, they have
not and that it has a landlord's lien or an abandoned property
lien when, in fact, Debtor is not a tenant and has not abandoned
the property.

In this context, the Debtor believes that it is imperative that it
gain access to the subject premises to secure and remove assets of
the estate for the benefit of creditors.

ALION SCIENCE: S&P Lowers CCR to 'SD' on Distressed Exchange
------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its corporate credit
rating on McLean, Va.-based Alion Science and Technology Corp. to
'SD' (selective default) from 'CC'.  At the same time, S&P lowered
its issue-level rating on the company's 10.25% senior unsecured
notes to 'D' from 'C'.

"The downgrades follow Alion's completion of a distressed exchange
transaction," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Martha Toll-
Reed.

The company exchanged $213 million of senior unsecured notes into
new third-lien senior secured notes due 2020.  The company also
refinanced its remaining capital structure with a new $65 million
first-out revolver, $285 million first-lien term facilities, and a
$70 million second-lien term loan.  About $22 million of the
10.25% unsecured notes will remain on the balance sheet and will
mature in Feb. 2015.  S&P treats the exchange transaction as
tantamount to a default, based on its criteria.  In the absence of
an exchange offer or refinancing, the company would be unable to
repay the secured and unsecured notes on their maturity dates.

S&P plans on raising the corporate credit rating to 'B-' from 'SD'
with a negative outlook during the next few days to reflect the
company's business prospects and current operating trends.

AMERICAN APPAREL: Incurs $16.2MM Net Loss in 2nd Quarter 2014
-------------------------------------------------------------
American Apparel, Inc., filed with the U.S. Securities and
Exchange Commission its quarterly report on Form 10-Q disclosing
a net loss of $16.20 million on $162.39 million of net sales for
the three months ended June 30, 2014, compared to a net loss of
$37.50 million on $162.23 million of net sales for the same period
in 2013.

The Company also reported a net loss of $21.67 million on $299.49
million of net sales for the six months ended June 30, 2014,
compared to a net loss of $84.01 million on $300.29 million of net
sales for the same period a year ago.

The Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2014, showed $314.36
million in total assets, $381.96 million in total liabilities and
a $67.60 million total stockholders' deficit.

                 Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of June 30, 2014, the Company had $10.2 million in cash, $30.6
million outstanding on its $50 million asset-backed revolving
credit facility and $16.9 million of availability for additional
borrowings under the facility.  As of Aug. 1, 2014, the Company
had $22.9 million available for borrowing.

                 CEO Suspension to Affect Business

The Company said that the suspension and possible termination of
its chief executive officer could have a material adverse impact
on its business.

If John J. Luttrell, the newly appointed interim CEO, should
choose to not continue as interim CEO or the Suitability Committee
determines it is not appropriate to reinstate Mr. Dov Charney as
CEO, the Company may have difficulty maintaining or developing its
business as it seeks to find a permanent CEO, the Company warned
in the Form 10-Q filed with the SEC.  In addition, as a result of
the Internal Investigation or the Suitability Committee's
determination, the Company said it could become subject to
litigation and regulatory investigations, which could have a
material adverse impact on its business.

On June 18, 2014, the Company's Board of Directors voted to
replace Mr. Dov Charney as Chairman of Board of Directors,
suspended him and notified him of its intent to terminate his
employment as the Company's president and chief executive officer
for cause.  In connection with the nomination, standstill and
support agreement, dated July 9, 2014, with Standard General,
Standard General Master Fund L.P., P. Standard General Ltd. and
Mr. Charney, the Board of Directors formed a new special committee
for the purpose of overseeing the continuing investigation into
the alleged misconduct by Mr. Charney, and Mr. Charney agreed that
pending his suspension, he would not serve as the Company's CEO or
as an officer or employee of the Company or the Company's
subsidiaries until the Internal Investigation is completed.  Based
on the findings of the Internal Investigations, the Suitability
Committee will determine whether it is appropriate for Mr. Charney
to be reinstated as the Company's CEO or serve as an officer or
employee of the Company or any of its subsidiaries.

ANNA NICOLE SMITH: Estates Loses in $44-Mil. Inheritance War
------------------------------------------------------------
Sara Randazzo, writing for The Wall Street Journal, reported that
U.S. District Judge David Carter in Santa Ana, California, refused
to issue $44 million in sanctions against the family of Anna
Nicole Smith's late husband, essentially ending a legal battle
that started 19 years ago and that has gone through bankruptcy
court, district court, appellate courts, and twice to the U.S.
Supreme Court.  Judge Carter, according to the Journal, also took
the opportunity to comment on the fact that most of the parties to
the lengthy legal battle are deceased and that "the American
taxpayer has supported the burden of this litigation for many
years, and it is time for this suit to no longer 'drag its weary
length before the court,'."

The case is In Re: Vickie Lynn Marshall, et al v. NULL, Case No.
8:01-cv-00097 (C.D. Calif.).

                      About Anna Nicole Smith

Anna Nicole Smith, formally known as Vickie Lynn Hogan, filed
under Chapter 11 in 1996 as part of a struggle over the estate of
J. Howard Marshall, whom she married in 1994 when she was 26 and
died barely a year after they were wed.  Ms. Smith, a former
Playboy model and actress, died in February 2007.

Mr. Marshall left his estate to his son, E. Pierce Marshall, and
nothing to Ms. Smith.  Ms. Smith, alleging that her husband had
promised to leave her a large share of the estate, won a ruling
from a bankruptcy judge in 2000 awarding her $475 million from Mr.
Marshall's estate.  A federal judge in 2002 reduced that amount to
$89 million.  The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in
San Francisco threw out the judgment in 2004, holding that the
bankruptcy court didn't have jurisdiction over probate matters.

The U.S. Supreme Court in May 2006 issued a decision, overruling
the appeals court and finding that the bankruptcy court had
jurisdiction, even though the issues also could have been decided
in the Texas probate court.  The Supreme Court remanded the case
for the federal appellate court to decide whether her victory in
the bankruptcy and district courts was knocked out because a Texas
probate court had entered judgment first against her.

On remand from the Supreme Court, the 9th Circuit issued its
decision in March 2010, concluding that the bankruptcy court
didn't have so-called core jurisdiction.  The 9th Circuit noted
that before the U.S. district court was able to enter judgment in
her favor, the Texas probate court had entered judgment against
her saying she was entitled to nothing from her deceased husband's
estate.

In September 2010, the Supreme Court agreed to take a second look
at disputes arising in and related to Ms. Smith's 1996 bankruptcy
case and her entitlement to payment of the $449 million bankruptcy
court judgment.

EisnerAmper LLP, in Iselin, New Jersey, issued a "going concern"
qualification on the consolidated financial statements for the
year ended March 31, 2014.  The independent auditors noted that
the Company's recurring losses from operations and negative cash
flows from operations raise substantial doubt about its ability to
continue as a going concern.

                         Bankruptcy Warning

The Company stated in the Fiscal 2014 Annual Report, "At March 31,
2014, we had a cash balance of $5,400, a working capital deficit
of approximately $2.9 million and an accumulated deficit of
approximately $22.9 million.  We have experienced losses from
operations since our inception, and we have relied on a series of
private placements and convertible debentures to fund our
operations.  The Company cannot predict how long it will continue
to incur losses or whether it will ever become profitable."

Pursuant to a Senior Note Purchase Agreement dated as of April 3,
2014, by and among the Company, IBI, Infusion, eDiets.com, Inc.,
Tru Hair, Inc., TV Goods Holding Corporation, Ronco Funding LLC --
Credit Parties -- and MIG7 Infusion, LLC, the Credit Parties sold

     funding through strategic partnerships.

   * Reducing operations to conserve cash.

   * Deferring certain marketing activities.

  * Investigating and pursuing transactions with third parties,
    including strategic transactions and relationships.

There can be no assurance that we will be able to secure the
additional funding we need.  If our efforts to do so are
unsuccessful, we will be required to further reduce or eliminate
our operations and/or seek relief through a filing under the U.S.
Bankruptcy Code."


ASARCO LLC: Sesa Loses Bid for Emergency Stay of Turnover Order
---------------------------------------------------------------
On August 7, 2014, the United States District Court for the
Southern District of Texas denied the request of Indian company
Sesa Sterlite Ltd. for an emergency stay of a turnover order
issued by the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern
District of Texas.

"We are pleased with this latest ruling," said Jorge Lazalde,
executive vice-president of ASARCO.  "Sesa Sterlite has attempted
for years to evade responsibility for its breach of contract, and
this order will help us in our efforts to enforce the judgment we
have obtained."

In 2012, a U.S. Bankruptcy Court awarded ASARCO $82.75 million in
damages as a result of Sesa Sterlite's breach of a purchase
agreement, but for more than two years, Sesa Sterlite has refused
to pay the judgment.  The company's refusal led the bankruptcy
court to issue a turnover order requiring Sesa Sterlite to
turnover cash, assets and property sufficient to satisfy the
judgment.  The turnover order also prevents Sesa Sterlite, and all
persons acting in concert with Sesa Sterlite, from transferring,
concealing, or otherwise disposing of Sesa Sterlite's property
until further order of the bankruptcy court.

In seeking a stay, Sesa Sterlite argued that the order unfairly
restricted its continuing business operations, including
prohibiting Sesa Sterlite from making dividend payments to the
holders of its American Depositary Shares scheduled for payment on
or before August 8, 2014.

The District Court denied the stay, saying, "Sterlite agreed to be
governed by United States law back in 2008 when doing so was to
its advantage, and only complains now when it may be brought to
answer for its 2008 breach of contract."

The turnover order also impacts Sesa Sterlite's previously issued
$500 million in 4% Convertible Senior Notes in the U.S. debt
market, which are scheduled to mature on October 30, 2014.  If
Sesa Sterlite fails to pay the judgment to ASARCO by October 30,
2014, the turnover order prohibits and enjoins Sesa Sterlite and
those acting in concert with it from making or transferring
principal and interest payments on the Notes.

"ASARCO will continue to pursue its legal rights under the
judgment and the turnover order," said Mr. Lazalde.  "We are
committed to holding Sesa Sterlite accountable for its conduct
here in the United States."

AUXILIUM PHARMACEUTICALS: Amends Credit Pact to Permit Merger
-------------------------------------------------------------
Auxilium Pharmaceuticals, Inc., entered into a third amendment to
its $225 million credit agreement with Morgan Stanley Senior
Funding, Inc., as administrative agent, to permit the closing of
the merger between the Company and QLT Inc. and the delisting of
Auxilium's common stock without those transactions being deemed an
event of default under the Credit Agreement, the Company disclosed
in a regulatory filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange
Commission.

The Company previously entered into an agreement and plan of
merger with, among other parties, QLT Inc., whereby a wholly owned
subsidiary of QLT will be merged with and into Auxilium and with
Auxilium continuing as the surviving corporation as an indirect
wholly owned subsidiary of QLT.  At the closing of the Merger,
Auxilium's stock will be delisted from the Nasdaq National Market
and each share of Auxilium common stock will be converted into the
right to receive 3.1359 QLT common shares.

The closing of the Merger would be a "change of control," as
defined in the Credit Agreement, and is prohibited by the terms of
the Credit Agreement.  In addition, the delisting of Auxilium's
common stock is prohibited by the terms of the Credit Agreement.

The Credit Agreement was also amended to increase the LIBOR rate
margin to 6.75% and the base rate margin to 5.75%, subject to
downward adjustment contingent upon corporate ratings.

The Company had previously entered into a second amendment to the
Credit Agreement to add an incremental facility in the principal
amount of $50,000,000.

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 Aug. 20, 2014, edition of the TCR, Standard & Poor's
Ratings Services affirmed its 'CCC' corporate credit rating on
Auxilium Pharmaceuticals Inc. following the company's announcement
that it had obtained an amendment to its credit agreement
permitting the change of control associated with the company's
proposed merger with a Canadian biotechnology firm QLT Inc.  The
outlook is negative.


BERNARD L. MADOFF: Trustee's Revamped Claims v. Sons Challenged
---------------------------------------------------------------
Law360 reported that the trustee liquidating Bernard L. Madoff's
defunct firm cannot "reinvent" a lawsuit against the convicted
Ponzi schemer's surviving son and the estate of another to allege
that they covered up the fraud, the defendants argued, now that a
U.K. court has exonerated them of exactly that.  According to the
report, Andrew Madoff and the estate of the late Mark Madoff
argued against a request by Bernard L. Madoff Securities LLC
trustee Irving Picard for leave to further amend the complaint
against them.

                     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 commenced distributions to victims, with the fourth
and latest batch of distributions done in May 2014.  Distributions
to eligible claimants have totaled almost $6 billion, which
includes $812.2 million in committed advances from the SIPC.  More
than 1,100 victims have already recovered the full principal they
lost in the fraud.

As of May 2014, Mr. Picard has recovered or reached agreements to
recover $9.8 billion since his appointment in December 2008.

BROWNIE'S MARINE: Files Form 10-Q, Warns of Possible Bankruptcy
---------------------------------------------------------------
Brownie's Marine Group, Inc., filed with the U.S. Securities and
Exchange Commission its quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the
period ended June 30, 2014, disclosing that it may be required to
scale back or cease operations, liquidate its assets and possibly
seek bankruptcy protection if it fails to raise additional funds
when needed.

During the fourth quarter of 2011, the Company formed a joint
venture with one dive entity, and in the first quarter of 2012,
purchased the assets of another, with assumption of their retail
location lease in Boca Raton, Florida.  The Company accomplished
both transactions predominantly through issuance of restricted
common stock in the Company.  The Company believed these
transactions would help generate sufficient future working
capital.  The Company maintains neither endeavor did or has
generated profit or positive cash-flow.  Effective May 31, 2013,
the Company closed and ceased operations at its retail facility.

The Company said it does not expect that existing cash flow will
be sufficient to fund presently anticipated operations beyond the
third quarter of 2014 which raises substantial doubt about its
ability to continue as a going concern.

"Although we had net income for the three and six months ended
June 30, 2014, have incurred losses since 2009, and reasonably
expect to have more losses through 2014.  We have had a working
capital deficit since 2009," the Company stated.

"The Company is behind on payments due for payroll taxes and
withholding, matured convertible debentures, related party notes
payable, accrued liabilities and interest - related parties, and
certain vendor payables.  The Company is handling delinquencies on
a case by case basis.  However, there can be no assurance that
cooperation the Company has received thus far will continue."

For the three months ended June 30, 2014, the Company reported net
income of $85,748 on $865,124 of total net revenues compared to
net income of $425,783 on $592,635 of total net revenues for the
same period a year ago.

For the six months ended June 30, 2014, the Company reported net
income of $47,349 on $1.45 million of total net revenues compared
to a net loss of $766,123 on $1.18 million of total net revenues
for the same period in 2013.

The Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2014, showed $1.09 million
in total assets, $1.57 million in total liabilities and a $472,386
total stockholders' deficit.

Brownie's Marine reported a net loss of $788,286 in 2013, as
compared with a net loss of $2.01 million in 2012.  As of
March 31, 2014, the Company had $1.11 million in total assets,
$1.72 million in total liabilities and a $613,098 of total
stockholders' deficit.

                  Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of March 31, 2014, the Company had cash and current assets
(primarily consisting of inventory) of $1,012,251 and current
liabilities of $1,725,977, or a current ratio of .59 to 1.  This
represents a working capital deficit of $713,726.  As of
December 31, 2013, the Company had cash and current assets of
$1,057,967 and current liabilities of $1,760,058, or a current
ratio of .60 to 1.  As of December 31, 2012, the Company had cash
and current assets of $894,573 and current liabilities of
$1,770,503, or a current ratio of .51 to 1.

The consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming
the Company will continue as a going concern, which contemplates
realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the
normal course of business for the twelve-month period following
the date of these financial statements.  The Company has incurred
losses since 2009, and expects to have losses through 2014. The
Company has had a working capital deficit since 2009.

The Company is behind on payments due for payroll taxes and
withholding, matured convertible debentures, related party notes
payable, accrued liabilities and interest-related parties, and
certain vendor payables.  The Company is handling delinquencies on
a case by case basis.  However, there can be no assurance that
cooperation the Company has received thus far will continue.

The Company closed and ceased operations at its retail facility.
The Company is still involved in the joint venture.  As a result,
the Company does not expect that existing cash flow will be
sufficient to fund presently anticipated operations beyond the
second quarter of 2043.  This raises substantial doubt about
BWMG's ability to continue as a going concern.  The Company will
need to raise additional funds and is currently exploring
alternative sources of financing.

"We have issued a number of convertible debentures as an interim
measure to finance our working capital needs.  We have
historically paid for many legal and consulting services with
restricted stock to maximize working capital.  We intend to
continue this practice in the future when possible.  We have
implemented some cost saving measures and will continue to explore
more to reduce operating expenses.

"If we fail to raise additional funds when needed, or do not have
sufficient cash flows from sales, we may be required to scale back
or cease operations, liquidate our assets and possibly seek
bankruptcy protection," the Company said in the Quarterly Report
for the period ended March 31, 2014.

CANCER GENETICS: Completes Acquisition of BioServe India
--------------------------------------------------------
Cancer Genetics, Inc., closed the acquisition of BioServe
Biotechnologies (India) Pvt. Ltd., a genomics services provider
serving both the research and clinical markets in India.

BioServe India, which operates out of a 14,000-square-foot, state-
of-the-art genomics facility in Hyderabad, has serviced over 200
clients with best-in-class genomic services, including next-
generation sequencing, genotyping and DNA synthesis.  CGI will
benefit from immediate revenue through BioServe India's long-term
contracts with academic and research institutions and its
capabilities in genetic research, test development and genomic
analysis.

BioServe India's clients include some of the leaders in the Indian
life sciences industry, including Dr. Reddy's Laboratories, NATCO
Pharmaceuticals, Piramal Life Sciences, the Indian Institute of
Science Education and Research and the Centre for Cellular and
Molecular Biology.

"We are excited to be joining Cancer Genetics," said Venkatadri
Bobba, general partner of Ventureast, India's premier venture
capital fund and a board member at BioServe India.

"This merger will allow us to improve patient care in India by
delivering cutting-edge, patented cancer diagnostic technologies
and allow us to offer an even broader range of state-of-the-art
services to biopharma customers, hospitals and academic research
institutions."

India is recognized as a high-growth market for molecular
diagnostics and oncology services.  More than 1 million new cases
of cancer are diagnosed in India each year, and incidence rates
are expected to rise by more than 72 percent by 2025.

Additionally, according to Frost and Sullivan, healthcare spending
is expected to increase at an average annual rate of 17 percent,
reaching $160 billion by 2017.

CGI's CEO, Panna Sharma, said the acquisition places the company
in a unique position to meet the growing need for genomic-based
cancer diagnostics in this market.  He anticipates wide adoption
of CGI's proprietary tests for non-Hodgkins lymphomas and
leukemias, kidney cancer and cervical cancer.  "In particular, the
acquisition positions CGI to revolutionize cervical cancer
screening and treatment in India, where 123,000 new cases are
diagnosed annually," he said.

"We now have a growing pipeline of potential clients and
collaborators for our non-invasive cervical cancer test in India,
where cervical cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in
women, accounting for 25 percent of global cervical cancer
deaths," Sharma said. "FHACT(R) will provide physicians in India
with critical genomic information to provide improved screening
for cervical cancer in both urban and rural settings."

"The expansion into India will also allow CGI to leverage its
resources and scale its operations, while strengthening its
capabilities in molecular testing, DNA synthesis, biomarker
analysis and next-generation sequencing," Sharma said.  He
described the Hyderabad laboratory as an important resource that
will allow CGI to access high-growth markets for oncology
diagnostics and reduce costs associated with product
manufacturing, test development and genomic data analysis.

CGI acquired BioServe India for approximately $1.9 million,
largely in CGIX stock and other deferred consideration.  Under the
terms of the agreement, BioServe India will be a wholly owned
subsidiary of CGI that will be renamed Cancer Genetics India.  CGI
plans on retaining BioServe India's 33 employees, and expanding
and strengthening the team.

"This acquisition is an important milestone for CGI, as we now
have the clinical diagnostics infrastructure and resources to
deliver critical genomic oncology services at a time when India
has placed a high priority on expanding its healthcare
capabilities," Sharma said.

CENTERLINE GUARANTEED: Moody's Withdraws B3 Ratings on 4 Funds
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's has withdrawn the underlying B3 rating of the Centerline
Guaranteed Corporate Partners II LP (formerly known as Related
Capital Guaranteed Corporate Partners II, LP) Series B, Series C,
Series D, and Series F tax credit funds due to insufficient
information to maintain the rating.

Summary Rating Rationale

The funds were issued to purchase limited partnership interests in
a number of affordable housing projects that generate low income
housing tax credits. In order to maintain the rating on the tax
credit funds, Moody's must review recent financial information on
the funds, and operating information on the underlying housing
projects. The fund sponsor has declined to provide us with this
information. Moody's did not receive this information since
Moody's placed the ratings under review for possible downgrade or
withdrawal on July 17, 2014.

Ratings Rationale

Moody's has withdrawn the rating because it believes it has
insufficient or otherwise inadequate information to support the
maintenance of the rating.

previous year.

The Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2014, showed $4.08 million
in total assets, $5.91 million in total liabilities and a $1.82
million total stockholders' deficit.

A full-text copy of the Form 10-Q is available for free at:

                        About China Shianyun

China Shianyun Group Corp., Ltd, formerly known as China Green
Creative, Inc., develops and distributes consumer goods, including

based in Shenzhen Guandong Province, China.

China Shianyun reported a net loss of $381,508 on $2 million of
revenues for the year ended Dec. 31, 2013, as compared with net
income of $635,873 on $6.87 million of revenues in 2012.

Albert Wong & Co., in Hong Kong, China, issued a "going concern"
qualification on the consolidated financial statements for the
year ended Dec. 31, 2013.  The independent auditors noted that
the Company has a significant accumulated deficits and negative

ability to continue as a going concern.


CIRCLE STAR: To Restate Jan. 31 Quarter Form 10-Q Report
--------------------------------------------------------
The management of Circle Star Energy Corp. and its Board of
Directors concluded that the previously issued financial
statements contained in the Company's quarterly report on Form
10-Q for the quarter ended Jan. 31, 2014, filed March 14, 2014,
should no longer be relied upon because of errors related to the
presentation of certain information included in the financial
statements and footnotes to the financial statements, the Company
disclosed in a regulatory filing with the U.S. Securities and
Exchange Commission.  The Company has determined that it was
necessary to correct the accounting for certain transactions as
presented within the statement of operations and statement of cash
flows along with their corresponding impact on the Company's
balance sheet.

The Company explained that the initial accounting for the fair
value of certain over-riding royalty interests and net revenue
interests in certain crude oil and natural gas properties sold
during the fiscal quarter ended Jan. 31, 2014, to an un-related
third party resulted in the gain being over-stated.  The
methodology initially utilized to arrive at the fair value applied
to the Interests sold was inappropriately applied at the time the
transaction was initially recorded.  Related to the re-allocation
of the fair value of the assets sold, the calculation of depletion
on a field by field basis was re-performed.  The issues were
discovered in connection with the audit of the Company's April 30,
2014, financial statements.  The gain on the sale of assets
initially reported as $1,728,235 was re-calculated utilizing the
appropriate fair value to arrive at a net gain of $1,232,279.
Depletion expense of $134,685 as reported through Jan. 31, 2014,
was re-calculated to be $496,659 for the nine months then ended.
The net impact of these adjustments resulted in net income of
$708,485 or $0.01 per share and $231,187 or $0.00 per share for
the three months and nine months ended Jan. 31, 2014,
respectively, as compared to a previously reported $1,566,415 or
$0.03 per share and $1,089,117 or $0.02 per share for the three
and nine months ended Jan. 31, 2014, respectively.

The Company expects to file the amended Form 10-Q immediately.

The Company's management and Board of Directors discussed the
matters with D'Arelli Pruzansky, P.A., the Company's independent
accounting firm.

COMMUNICATION INTELLIGENCE: Completes $1.1 Million Funding Round
----------------------------------------------------------------
Communication Intelligence Corporation had closed a new round of
funding with a number of existing and new investors to provide
working capital.

In the transaction, which closed on Aug. 5, 2014, investors
subscribed to approximately $1.1 million of CIC's Series D-1
Convertible Preferred Stock, which can be converted to common
stock at a price of $0.0225 per share.

"After evaluating a number of funding alternatives, we opted for
this smaller private placement to limit shareholder dilution,"
said Philip Sassower, chairman and chief executive officer for
CIC.  "This additional capital injection, together with the
funding available under the previously announced credit agreement
with ICG, is expected to provide CIC with sufficient runway to
execute on our healthy pipeline of opportunities, and to delay
consideration of a broader-based strategy to recapitalize the
company and to improve the trading environment for our shares of
common stock.  Phoenix and its investment partners remain
committed to CIC and optimistic in the company's ability to
successfully execute its business plan."

DBSI INC: US Says Ex-Boss Should Spend Rest Of Life In Prison
-------------------------------------------------------------
Law360 reported that the federal government said that Douglas L.
Swenson, former president of bankrupt real estate company DBSI
Inc., should be sentenced to a term that would amount to life in
prison after being convicted in what they called the largest fraud
in the history of the District of Idaho.  According to the report,
in a 45-page sentencing memorandum, attorneys for the feds called
Swenson "far and away" the most culpable defendant for his role in
what authorities said was a Ponzi-like scheme under the guise of a
real estate investment company he and other brass represented to
be worth $105 million when it was actually insolvent.

                          About DBSI Inc.

Headquartered in Meridian, Idaho, DBSI Inc. and its affiliates
were engaged in numerous commercial real estate and non-real
estate projects and businesses.  On Nov. 10, 2008, and other

to the Examiner.

On Sept. 11, 2009, the Honorable Peter J. Walsh entered an Order

expensive litigation over its complex web of affiliates.  The
plan, which was declared effective Oct. 29, 2010, was co-proposed
by DBSI's unsecured creditors committee.

Pursuant to the confirmed Chapter 11 plan, the DBSI Real Estate
Liquidating Trust was established as of the effective date and
certain of the Debtors' assets, including the Debtors' ownership
interest in Florissant Market Place was transferred to the RE

DETROIT, MI: FGIC Wants Damages In Bid To Undo $1.5B Debt
---------------------------------------------------------
Law360 reported that Financial Guaranty Insurance Co. challenged
Detroit's attempt to invalidate $1.45 billion in borrowings from
the Kwame Kilpatrick era that were meant to solve unfunded pension
liabilities but have been widely blamed for hastening the city's
descent into Chapter 9.  According to the report, a counterclaim
filed by the bond insurer demanded that U.S. Bankruptcy Judge
Steven Rhodes reject the adversary complaint the city has brought
to nullify the pension-related debt, which Detroit says was issued
by the administration of its former mayor in violation of state
law. Barring that, FGIC wants damages from Detroit, saying it was
duped into guaranteeing the transactions.

The adversary case is City of Detroit, Michigan v. Detroit General
Retirement System Service Corp. et al., case number 14-04112-swr.

                  About City of Detroit, Michigan

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

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

Michigan Governor Rick Snyder authorized the bankruptcy filing.

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

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

DETROIT, MI: Judge Allows County Challenges to Debt-Cut Plan
------------------------------------------------------------
Steven Raphael and Steven Church, writing for Bloomberg News,
reported that Detroit's debt-cutting plan can be challenged by
nearby suburban counties when a trial over the feasibility of the
proposal starts later this month, a judge ruled, increasing the
opposition the city must overcome to end its $18 billion
bankruptcy.  According to the report, Macomb, Wayne and Oakland
counties oppose various aspects of the city's plan, mainly because
the proposal would take money out of the Detroit water system to
help bolster an underfunded pension fund for city workers.

Ramaekers Group, LLC, is the financial advisor.  The petition says

There were 131 cases filed against the Diocese, with 30 scheduled
for trial, as of the bankruptcy filing.

Within the bankruptcy case, the Debtor entered into a settlement
with the abuse survivors.  This settlement included both monetary

and Exchange Commission its quarterly report on Form 10-Q
disclosing a net loss of $4.61 million on $6.91 million of
revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2014, as compared
with a net loss of $7.69 million on $4.99 million of revenues for
the same period in 2013.

The Company also reported a net loss of $8.73 million on $13.39

assets, $23.24 million in total liabilities and $21.47 million in

conversion of the Convertible Note amounting to $2,729,630 into
equity subsequent to June 30, 2014, and the improvement of net
cash provided by operating activities, the Company believes that
it can carry out its basic operational plans for the coming 12
months.  However, for the longer term strategy and obligations of
the Company, the Company said it will need to continue to attract
financing in order to finance its organizational growth and
capital expenditures.

"If the Company is unable to achieve its anticipated revenues or
financing arrangements with its major vendors, the Company will
need to attract further debt or equity financing.  Although the
Company has been successful in the past in meeting its cash needs,
there can be no assurance that proceeds from additional revenues,
vendor financings or debt and equity financings, where required,
will be received in the required time frames.  If the Company is
unable to achieve its anticipated revenues or obtain financing it
may need to delay and restructure its operations.  As of June 30,
2014, these conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company's
ability to continue as a going concern," the Company stated in the
Report.

B1 from Ba3, Probably of Default Rating to B1-PD from Ba3-PD and
senior unsecured debt rating to B2 from B1 and placed these
ratings on review for further downgrade. Moody's also lowered
RDEN's speculative-grade liquidity rating to SGL-3 from SGL-2. The
downgrade and rating review follow the reporting of the company's
fourth quarter results, which reflect continued weak operating
performance, and conclusion of the review of strategic
alternatives with the announcement of investment by and
partnership with Rhone Group LLC ("Rhone Group").

Ratings Rationale

The ratings downgrade reflects Moody's view that due to weak
operating performance and ongoing challenges in the fragrance
category, RDEN's credit metrics are not likely to be consistent
with a Ba3 rating in the near term. Moody's review will consider
the competitive, economic and structural headwinds that are
challenging RDEN and the benefits (both financial and strategic)
of the new partnership with Rhone Group LLC ("Rhone Group"). It
will also consider the potential for Rhone Group's involvement,
along with other measures that have been taken by RDEN, to
stabilize the business, adjust the cost base and restore revenue
growth in the second half of fiscal 2015 and beyond. Moody's will
assess RDEN's financial position including projected cash flow,
credit metrics, and acquisition strategy.

RDEN's SGL-3 speculative-grade liquidity rating reflects its
modest cash balance ($56 million as of 6/30/14), acceptable
availability under its asset-based revolving facility and Moody's
expectation that free cash flow will remain negative over the next
12 months. As of 6/30/2014, the $300 million asset-based revolving
facilities had $78 million outstanding (with additional borrowing
capacity of over $90 million). The facility matures in January,
2016. The $50 million redeemable preferred stock investment from
Rhone Group will be used to partially pay down the revolving
credit facility.

The following ratings were downgraded and remain on review for
downgrade:

  Corporate Family Rating to B1 from Ba3

  Probability of Default Rating to B1-PD from Ba3-PD

  Senior Unsecured Regular Bond / Debenture to B2, LGD5 from B1,
  LGD5

  The speculative-grade liquidity rating was lowered to SGL-3
  from SGL-2

The principal methodology used in this rating was the Global
Packaged Goods published in June 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.

Elizabeth Arden, Inc., headquartered in Miami, FL, is a global
beauty products company with a broad portfolio of branded prestige
fragrance (78% revenue for the FYE 6/30/13), skin care (17%) and
cosmetics (5%). Products are sold in over 120 countries
(approximately 62% North America and 38% in other geographic
regions). RDEN markets more than 100 company brands and
distributes an additional 300 brands. Brands include Elizabeth
Arden skincare, color and fragrance products, celebrity fragrance
brands including Britney Spears, Elizabeth Taylor, Jennifer
Anniston and Justin Bieber; designer fragrance brands including
Juicy Couture, Alfred Sung, BCBGMAXAZRIA and Geoffrey Beene; and
the lifestyle fragrance brands Curve, Giorgio Beverly Hills and PS
Fine Cologne. Revenue for the LTM 6/30/14 period was approximately
$1.2 billion.


ENERSYS: Moody's Affirms 'Ba1' Corporate Family Rating
------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service, affirmed EnerSys' Corporate Family
Rating (CFR) at Ba1, Probability of Default at Ba1-PD, and Senior
Unsecured $172 million 3.375% Convertible Notes due 2038 at Ba2,
and Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating at SGL-1. The company's
Senior Secured Bank Credit Facility was downgraded to Baa3 from
Baa2. The revolver was upsized to $500 million from $350 million
and a new $150 million incremental term loan tranche (also rated
Baa3) was added to the Senior Secured Bank Credit Facility. The
rating outlook is stable.

Ratings Rationale

The downgrade of the Senior Secured Bank Credit Facility reflects
the change in the composition of the company's capital structure
following the upsizing and the addition of the $150 million senior
secured incremental term loan. As a result, under Moody's Loss
Given Default methodology, the increase in secured debt relative
to unsecured liabilities results in higher expected loss for the
credit facility and a one notch downgrade.

The affirmation of EnerSys' Ba1 CFR reflects its conservative
balance sheet with Debt to EBITDA under 2 times (1.6x at June 29,
2014 including Moody's standard adjustments) and an acquisition
strategy that should add to growth without meaningfully stressing
the company's balance sheet. In general, Moody's expect
acquisitions to total $200 million to $500 million annually.
Outside of a large debt-funded acquisition, Moody's expect Debt to
EBITDA to be in the 1.5x to 2.0x range roughly in line with the
level for the last twelve months ended June 29, 2014. The rating
also considers that the company has minimal product
diversification in the battery market but benefits from a large
replacement market. Moreover, there is significant end customer
diversification within the three end markets that it serves:
reserve power, motive power, and aerospace & defense. Its market
share is anticipated to remain significant in the Americas and
EMEA while growing in the Asian market where the company has a
much smaller market position and where the market's growth should
outpace the more developed markets.

EnerSys' Speculative Grade Liquidity rating of SGL-1 reflects
Moody's assessment that the company will maintain a very good
liquidity position over the next 12-18 months. The company
reported a sizeable cash balance of approximately $235 million as
of June 29, 2014. Moreover, Moody's expect that the company will
generate operating cash flow well in excess of its capital
spending and enjoy further free cash flow generation before
acquisitions. Moody's believe that its $500 million revolving
credit facility, due 2018, provides sufficient back-up liquidity
for a company its size even when considering likely acquisitions.
The company also has ample cushion under its financial covenants
as prescribed under its revolving credit facility.

The ratings are unlikely to be upgraded over the intermediate term
given the company's product concentration and the expectation for
increasing leverage due to its strategy to enhance growth with
acquisitions. There are also risks associated with technological
obsolescence of its lead-based batteries. As a result, a change in
the rating outlook to positive is unlikely over the short term.

Downward rating pressure including a change in outlook to negative
could occur if its operations weaken meaningfully or if the
company makes large debt financed acquisitions particularly if
these result in Debt to EBITDA increasing to over 2.5x for longer
than just a short period of time. Acquisitions where the company
is aggressive in the purchase multiples can also provide ratings
pressure. Moreover, although Moody's don't anticipate a large
acquisition above $500 million in size, Moody's note that large
acquisitions include a level of integration and execution risks
even if funded with some equity. An inability to manage through
the volatility of lead prices or an adverse change in the
competitive climate due to a technological breakthrough in battery
technology by its competitors could also adversely affect the
ratings.

The stable rating outlook reflects the company's low leverage and
strong free cash flow for the rating category weighed against
ongoing questions related to possible acquisitions. The company is
unlikely to achieve a rating upgrade due in part to its product
concentration, technological obsolescence risk, commodity related
risks, and acquisitive growth strategy.

The principal methodology used in this rating was Global
Manufacturing Companies published in July 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.

EnerSys, headquartered in Reading, Pennsylvania, is the world's
largest manufacturer, marketer and distributor of industrial
batteries. The company also manufactures related products such as
chargers, power equipment, cabinet enclosures, battery
accessories, and provides aftermarket as well as customer-support
services for industrial batteries. Revenues for the LTM period
through June 29, 2014 totaled over $2.5 billion.


ENERSYS: S&P Raises CCR to 'BB+' on Improved Credit Metrics
-----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services raised its ratings on
industrial battery manufacturer EnerSys, including the corporate
credit rating to 'BB+' from 'BB'.  The outlook on the corporate
credit rating is stable.

At the same time, S&P raised its issue-level rating on the
company's recently upsized $650 million first-lien credit
facilities to 'BBB' from 'BBB-'.  The '1' recovery rating remains
unchanged, indicating S&P's expectation for very high recovery
(90%-100%) in a payment default scenario.  The first-lien credit
facilities consist of a $500 million revolving credit facility due
2018 and a $150 million term loan due 2018.

S&P also raised its issue-level rating on the company's senior
unsecured convertible notes due 2038 to 'BB+' from 'BB'.  The '3'
recovery rating remains unchanged, indicating S&P's expectation
for meaningful recovery (50%-70%) in a payment default scenario.

The upgrade reflects EnerSys' good operating prospects and S&P's
expectation that the company will maintain debt-to-EBITDA leverage
in the 1.5x to 2.0x range and funds from operations (FFO) to debt
in the 45% to 60% range while it continues to pursue debt-financed
acquisitions and shareholder return activities.  "EnerSys has
demonstrated a disciplined approach to debt-funded activities, and
has increased its capacity for medium and large debt-funded
acquisitions and shareholder return activities," said Standard &
Poor's credit analyst Sol Samson.

EnerSys manufactures, markets, and distributes reserve-power
batteries (for telecom, computer back-up, and aerospace and
defense applications) and motive-power batteries (primarily for
electric forklifts).  Its global market shares in these two areas
are roughly 16% and 35%, respectively.  Demand from EnerSys' core
customers tends to be cyclical, as demonstrated by its performance
during the last recession, when revenues fell by about 30%.  These
factors, along with the company's good geographic diversity,
support Standard & Poor's business risk profile assessment of
"fair."  S&P believes EnerSys will maintain good market shares in
the global industrial battery market, which is cyclical,
competitive, and exposed to volatile lead costs.  The company
should continue to benefit from relatively stable aftermarket
revenues and to mitigate raw material cost increases through
higher prices, though there can be a lag.

S&P believes EnerSys will maintain credit ratios consistent with
S&P's "modest" financial risk profile.  Current credit ratios are
well superior to the "modest" range but are likely to drop as the
company employs debt in addition to its free cash flow to fund
growth initiatives and shareholder returns.  As of June 29, 2014,
the company's debt to EBITDA was less than 1x and its FFO to debt
was about 100%.  S&P do not expect these measures to deteriorate
to more than 2x or less than 45%, respectively, notwithstanding
its assumptions of substantial acquisitions and share repurchases.

                       About FreeSeas Inc.

Headquartered in Athens, Greece, FreeSeas Inc., formerly known as
Adventure Holdings S.A., was incorporated in the Marshall Islands
on April 23, 2004, for the purpose of being the ultimate holding
company of ship-owning companies.  The management of FreeSeas'
vessels is performed by Free Bulkers S.A., a Marshall Islands
company that is controlled by Ion G. Varouxakis, the Company's
Chairman, President and CEO, and one of the Company's principal
shareholders.

The Company's fleet consists of six Handysize vessels and one
Handymax vessel that carry a variety of drybulk commodities,
including iron ore, grain and coal, which are referred to as
"major bulks," as well as bauxite, phosphate, fertilizers, steel
products, cement, sugar and rice, or "minor bulks."  As of
Oct. 12, 2012, the aggregate dwt of the Company's operational
fleet is approximately 197,200 dwt and the average age of its
fleet is 15 years.

RBSM LLP, in New York, issued a "going concern" qualification on
the consolidated financial statements for the year ended Dec. 31,
2013.  The independent auditors noted that the Company has
incurred recurring operating losses and has a working capital
deficiency.  In addition, the Company has failed to meet scheduled
payment obligations under its loan facilities and has not complied
with certain covenants included in its loan agreements.
Furthermore, the vast majority of the Company's assets are
considered to be highly illiquid and if the Company were forced to
liquidate, the amount realized by the Company could be
substantially lower that the carrying value of these assets.
These conditions among others raise substantial doubt about the
Company's ability to continue as a going concern.


GENCO SHIPPING: Incurs $65.5MM Second Quarter Net Loss

"We believe that amounts available to us under the Cash Collateral
Order plus cash generated from operations will be sufficient to
fund anticipated cash requirements in the short term for minimum
operating and capital expenditures and for working capital
purposes.  However, there can be no assurance that cash on hand
and other available funds will be sufficient to meet our
restructuring or ongoing cash needs," the Company stated in the
Report.

Amended Prepackaged Plan of Reorganization of Genco and its
subsidiaries pursuant to Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code on July

GETTY PETROLEUM: Ex-Owners Reach Impasse In Trustee's $6.5M Suit
----------------------------------------------------------------
Law360 reported that the men who bought Getty Petroleum Marketing
Inc. from a unit of OAO Lukoil for $1 in 2011 will not reach a
mediated settlement of the Getty liquidation trustee's adversary
suit claiming they drained $6.5 million from the company to line
their own bank accounts, a New York bankruptcy judge said.
According to the report, citing a brief report from U.S.
Bankruptcy Judge Martin Glenn, seven good-faith mediation sessions
have not produced a solution to the adversary complaint accusing
Bjorn Aaserod and Joseph Scott Karro of grabbing millions of
dollars from GPMI's coffers in compensation to pay for personal
expenses before putting the company into bankruptcy.

The adversary case is Alfred T. Giulliano as trustee of The Getty
Petroleum Liquidating Trust v. Cambridge Securities LLC, et al,
case number 1:13-ap-01720, in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Southern District of New York.

                      About Getty Petroleum

A remnant of J. Paul Getty's oil empire, Getty Petroleum Marketing
markets gasoline, hydraulic fluids, and lubricating oils through
a network of gas stations owned and operated by franchise holders.
A former subsidiary of Russian oil giant LUKOIL, the company
operates in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeastern US states.  Getty
Petroleum Marketing's primary asset is the more than 800 gas
stations in the Mid-Atlantic states which are located on
properties owned by Getty Realty.  After scaling back the
company's operations to cut debt, in 2011 LUKOIL sold Getty
Petroleum Marketing to investment firm Cambridge Petroleum Holding
for an undisclosed price.

IMH FINANCIAL: Ends Second Quarter With $9.5 Million in Cash
------------------------------------------------------------
IMH Financial Corporation filed its quarterly report on Form 10-Q
for the period ended June 30, 2014, with the U.S. Securities and
Exchange Commission on Aug. 14, 2014.

For the six months ended June 30, 2014, top line revenue increased
123%, or $8.5 million, to $15.5 million from $7.0 million for the
six month period ended June 30, 2013.
During the six months ended June 30, 2014, the Company recorded
gains of $12.0 million from the disposal of assets compared to
gains of $0.7 million on asset disposals for the same six month
period last year.

EBITDA for the six months ended June 30, 2014, was $7.1 million,
an improvement of 188% over the corresponding period in 2013.  Net
loss for the six months ended June 30, 2014, including $2.0
million of non-cash depreciation and amortization, was $4.5
million, a 39% improvement from the net loss of $7.3 million for
the six month period ended June 30, 2013, which included $1.1
million of non-cash depreciation and amortization.

As of June 30, 2014, the Company had $224.85 million in total

total stockholders' equity.

Cash and cash equivalents at June 30, 2014, were $9.51 million.

to recover, we believe that we will be able to identify and fund
attractive real estate-based debt and mezzanine investment
opportunities in order to return to profitability and growth.  We
believe that the changes put in place at the Company over the past
several years are beginning to be reflected in our improved
financial performance."

Mr. Bain continued, "We feel that our current portfolio of assets
are favorably positioned and will be complemented by our future
investment activities, which we believe will be significant.  The
recent changes announced in our capital structure should position
us well for future earnings in the coming quarters, excluding
certain anticipated one-time charges in the third quarter
resulting from our debt restructuring.  We anticipate the momentum
to carry into the second half of 2014."

INC RESEARCH: S&P Raises CCR to B+ on Better-Than-Expected Results
------------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services raised its corporate credit
rating on Raleigh, N.C.-based contract research organization INC
Research to 'B+' from 'B'.  The rating outlook is stable.

"At the same time, we raised our issue-level rating on the
company's senior secured credit facility to 'BB-' from 'B+',
reflecting the raised corporate credit rating.  The recovery
rating on this debt remains '2', indicating our expectation for
substantial (70%-90%) recovery in the event of default.  We also
raised our issue-level rating on the company's unsecured notes to
'B' from 'B-', and the recovery rating on this debt is unchanged
at '5', reflecting our expectation for modest (10%-30%) recovery
on this class of debt in the event of default," S&P noted.

"Our rating actions follow several quarters of strong EBITDA
growth that has resulted in leverage declining to about 4.6x from
the mid-6x range a year ago.  Moreover, we view the risk of
releveraging as low, as balance sheet cash and internally
generated cash flow should be sufficient to fund capital
expenditures and tuck-in acquisitions without the company taking
on incremental debt," said credit analyst Shannan Murphy.  "As a
result, we are revising our financial risk descriptor to
"aggressive" from "highly leveraged" and raising the rating."

S&P's stable rating outlook reflects its expectation that double-
digit revenue growth and stable EBITDA margins will allow INC to
sustain leverage below 5x.  It also reflects S&P's expectation
that the company will be able to fund its growth objectives,
including expansionary capital expenditures and tuck-in
acquisitions, through internally generated free cash flow, as
opposed to additional debt.

Downside Scenario

S&P could lower the rating if the company undertakes a large debt-
financed acquisition or shareholder dividend that results in
leverage being sustained above 5x for an extended period of time.
Assuming no acquired EBITDA, S&P estimates about $100 million to
$150 million in debt capacity at the current rating.

Upside Scenario

Given the uncertainty created by financial sponsor ownership, an
upgrade is unlikely barring a change in the company's ownership.


INDEPENDENCE TAX IV: Delays Form 10-Q Due to Management Changes
---------------------------------------------------------------
Independence Tax Credit Plus L.P. IV was not able to timely file
its quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the period ended June 30,
2014, due to significant changes in the senior management of the
Partnership, according to a regulatory filing with the U.S.
Securities and Exchane Commission.

On Nov. 14, 2013, Robert A. Pace resigned as a chief financial
officer and principal accounting officer and was subsequently
replaced by Mark B. Hattier.  Also, on Nov. 14, 2013, Robert L.
Levy resigned as president and chief executive officer and was
subsequently replaced by Alan T. Fair.

"While the Partnership's new officers have been working diligently
to familiarize themselves with the Partnership's operations and to
accomplish a timely filing of its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q
for the period ended June 30, 2014, they require additional time
to finalize the report within the spirit as well as the letter of
the Commission's rules," the filing stated.

The Company fully expects to be able to file that Form 10-Q no
later than five calendar days after its original prescribed due
date.

                      About Independence Tax IV

New York-based Independence Tax Credit Plus L.P. IV is a limited
partnership which was formed under the laws of the State of
Delaware on Feb, 22, 1995.

On July 6, 1995, the Partnership commenced a public offering of
Beneficial Assignment Certificates representing assignments of
limited partnership interests in the Partnership.  The Partnership
received $45,844,000 of gross proceeds from the Offering from
2,759 investors.  The Offering was terminated on May 22, 1996.

The Partnership's initial business was to invest in other
partnerships owning leveraged apartment complexes that are
eligible for the low-income housing tax credit enacted in the Tax
Reform Act of 1986, some of which may also be eligible for the
historic rehabilitation tax credit.

The Partnership is currently in the process of developing a plan
to dispose of all of its investments.  It is anticipated that this
process will take a number of years.

Independence Tax Credit Plus L.P. IV reported a net loss of $2.71
million on $3.6 million of total revenues for the fiscal year
ended March 31, 2014, compared to a net loss of $967,365 on $3.45
million of total revenues for the year ended March 31, 2013.

As of March 31, 2014, the Partnership had $4.79 million in total
assets, $26.68 million in total liabilities and a $21.89 million
total partners' deficit.


INSITE WIRELESS: Fitch Affirms 'BB-sf' Rating on Class B Notes
--------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings affirms InSite Wireless Group, LLC's secured
cellular site revenue notes, series 2013-1 as follows:

   -- $123.9 million 2013-1 class A at 'BBBsf'; Outlook Stable;
   -- $39.6 million 2013-1 class B at 'BB-sf'; Outlook Stable.

Fitch does not rate the $14 million 2013-1 class C notes.

Key Rating Drivers

The affirmations are the result of the anticipated cash flow
growth since issuance, due to contractual rent bumps, additional
leases and acquisition of additional tower sites (with associated
tenant leases) via the site acquisition account (prefunding).  The
issuer reported net cash flow (NCF) at issuance was $17.3 million,
before taking into account site acquisitions.  As of the August
2014 remittance, the reported NCF was $21.4 million, which
includes cash flow growth from acquired sites.  Approximately $5.4
million remained in the site acquisition account as of the August
2014 remittance.  The prefunding period ends in August 2014.

As part of Fitch's analysis, Fitch received a June 2014 data file
with site and tenant information.  As of the June data file, there
were 587 sites with over 1,450 tenant leases.  Telephony/broadband
tenants represented over 70% of the annualized run rate revenue
(ARRR).  Fitch modeled similar assumptions regarding the pool and
prefunding as at issuance.  This resulted in a haircut of
approximately 8% to the issuer NCF.

The collateral pool contains 16 distributed antennae system (DAS)
networks representing 11% of the ARRR.  Similar to issuance, Fitch
did not give credit the sites where InSite has a management
contract to manage a DAS network owned by the DAS venue.  Fitch
limited modeled proceeds from the DAS networks to the 'BBsf'
category (i.e. applied a 'BBsf' rating cap), based on the
uncertainty surrounding the licensing agreements in a venue-
bankruptcy scenario and the limited history of these networks.

RATING SENSITIVITIES

The class ratings are expected to remain stable based on expected
cash flow growth due to annual rent escalations, tenant renewals
and acquired sites during the site acquisition period.  The
ratings have been capped at 'BBBsf' due to the total leverage of
the pool.

Additionally, the possibility for upgrades is limited due to the
allowance for additional notes, the specialized nature of the
collateral and the potential for changes in technology to affect
long-term demand for wireless tower space.


INVERSIONES ALSACIA: Enters Into Agreement with Noteholders
-----------------------------------------------------------
Inversiones Alsacia S.A. and Express de Santiago Uno S.A. on
Aug. 19 disclosed that they have reached an agreement in principle
with an informal group of holders that, collectively, holds more
than 60% of the principal amount of the Company's 8% senior
secured notes due 2018 to restructure the terms of the Existing
Notes.  The Agreement, which is subject to the negotiation of
definitive documentation, contemplates the issuance of new notes
that will provide the Company with financial flexibility -- by
extending the maturity of the notes, re-profiling the mandatory
amortization payment schedule and modifying existing covenants to
facilitate the Company's acquisition of new buses -- in order to
best position the Company to provide improved services and
successfully pursue the three year extension available under each
of its existing concession agreements.

A spokesperson for the Company commented, "With this agreement,
the Company expects to continue to provide uninterrupted bus
services to the citizens of Santiago and will continue to meet its
obligations to its vendors and employees, who will not be
negatively impacted in any way by the Agreement.  In addition,
this agreement will better position the company to invest in new
buses that will enable it to provide improved service to the
Chilean public and reduce contamination of the local environment."

The Company has not experienced and does not expect to experience
any disruptions in its operations during its reorganization
process. Specifically, the Company expects to continue to:

  -- operate its full schedule of services to the citizens of
Santiago;

  -- provide its employees with wages, healthcare coverage,
vacation days, and similar benefits without interruption; and

  -- pay suppliers for goods and services received throughout the
reorganization process.

The Company expects that, now that it has an agreement in
principle with the Informal Group, it can move forward in its
dialogue with the Ministry of Transportation and
Telecommunications in an effort to establish the right conditions
to ensure the long-term financial equilibrium of all
concessionaries in the Transantiago system and improve the
operational indicators and the service to the citizens of
Santiago.

Consistent with the Agreement, the Company did not make its
scheduled principal or interest payments due Aug. 19 under the
indenture for the Existing Notes (the "Indenture") and has entered
into a forbearance agreement with the Informal Group in the form
of Exhibit 1 attached below (the "Forbearance Agreement").
Pursuant to the Forbearance Agreement, the Informal Group has
agreed to forbear from pursuing any remedies under the Indenture
in respect of defaults thereunder for a period of up to 4 days,
subject to a possible extension if mutually agreed upon by the
Company and the Informal Group.  The Company and the Informal
Group have agreed to negotiate in good faith, during the
forbearance period, definitive documentation memorializing the
Agreement, which is described in greater detail in the agreed term
sheet attached as Exhibit 2 below (the "Agreed Term Sheet").  The
Company's direct and indirect shareholders, including Carlos Mario
Rios Velilla and Francisco Javier Rios Velilla, have advised the
Company that they are supportive of the agreement reflected in the
Agreed Term Sheet subject to the successful negotiation and
execution of definitive documentation.  The Company intends to
implement the Agreement through a prepackaged plan of
reorganization filed under Chapter 11 in the United States.  No
assurances can be given that definitive documentation will be
executed or that the Company will be able to successfully execute
a restructuring.

The Company has also received termination notices in respect of
certain hedging agreements entered into with Merrill Lynch Capital
Services Inc. and Credit Suisse International as a result of the
Company's failure to pay certain amounts due thereunder.  The
Company's nonpayment of its obligations under the Indenture and
the hedging agreements only impacted the holders of the Existing
Notes and the hedge agreement counterparties, and no other
creditors or suppliers were affected or should expect to be
impacted by this announcement.  The Company remains current on all
of its other obligations.

Finally, in connection with the discussions with the Informal
Group relating to the restructuring of Company's obligations under
the Existing Notes, the Company has, since July 15, 2014, provided
the Informal Group with certain non-public information relating to
the Company (the "Disclosed Information").  Pursuant to
confidentiality agreements entered into by the Company with the
members of the Informal Group, each dated as of July 15, 2014, the
Company agreed to publicly disclose the Disclosed Information if
certain events occurred.  This information is being disclosed on
the Company's website (www.exps1.cl or www.alsacia.cl) under the
heading "Inversionistas ? Comunicados y Noticias" for both
Inversiones Alsacia S.A. and Express de Santiago Uno S.A. to
comply with the Company's obligations under the confidentiality
agreements.

KEMET CORP: SVP Global Sales John Drabik Resigns
------------------------------------------------
John J. Drabik, senior vice president, global sales, notified
KEMET Corporation of his decision to resign from the Company.  Mr.
Drabik has accepted a senior position with one of the Company's
key channel partners.  Mr. Drabik's resignation from the Company
is effective as of Aug. 22, 2014.

                           About KEMET

KEMET, based in Greenville, South Carolina, is a manufacturer and
supplier of passive electronic components, specializing in
tantalum, multilayer ceramic, film, solid aluminum, electrolytic,
and paper capacitors.  KEMET's common stock is listed on the NYSE
under the symbol "KEM."

The Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2014, showed $838.64
million in total assets, $620.39 million in total liabilities and
$218.25 million in total stockholders' equity.

                            *     *     *

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

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

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


KEMET CORP: S&P Revises Outlook to Stable & Affirms 'B-' CCR
------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it revised its outlook on
Greenville, S.C.-based capacitor supplier KEMET Corp. to stable
from negative.  S&P affirmed the ratings, including the 'B-'
corporate credit rating.

S&P's issue-level rating on the company's 10.5% secured senior
notes due 2018 is 'B-'.  The '4' recovery rating on the notes is
unchanged and indicates S&P's expectation for average (30% to 50%)
recovery in the event of a payment default.

"Our outlook revision is based on our expectation that recent
progress in restructuring across tantalum and film and
electrolytic (F&E) product lines will lead to continued expansion
in gross margins through fiscal 2015," said Standard & Poor's
credit analyst James Thomas.

Although S&P believes that revenue growth will be muted for the
rest of the fiscal year, improved margins should enable KEMET to
generate over $70 million of adjusted EBITDA for the year, up from
$53 million in fiscal 2014.  Furthermore, S&P expects that FOCF,
while remaining weak, will turn positive for fiscal 2015 after two
years in negative territory.

S&P's stable outlook on KEMET reflects the company's continued
revenue and profitability improvement over the past few quarters,
recovering from the revenue decline experienced in early fiscal
2014.

S&P could lower the rating if the company does not sustain recent
operating improvements, leading to continued negative FOCF and
diminished cash balances.

Although unlikely over the next 12 months, S&P would consider
raising the rating on KEMET if continued operating efficiency
improvements enable further margin expansion and sustained
positive free cash flow greater than 5% of debt.


KID BRANDS: Selling 'Sassy' Business Unit for $14 Million
---------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,

LATEX FOAM: Can Use Wells Fargo's Cash Collateral Until Aug. 29
---------------------------------------------------------------
The Bankruptcy Court approved a third interim stipulation and

of $34 million.  Wells Fargo asserts secured claims of $16,500,000
against the Debtor's assets including cash collateral as provided

LATEX FOAM: Committee, DECD Say Inv. Banker's Fees Excessive
------------------------------------------------------------
The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors, as well as, secured
creditor State of Connecticut Department of Economic and Community
Development, objects to Latex Foam International LLC's application
to employ Duff & Phelps Securities LLC as their investment banker.

The Creditors Committee told the Court that the firm's proposed
fees are excessive and overly load, and unreasonable and
inconsistent pursuant to Section 328 of the Bankruptcy Code.  The
Committee notes that the Debtors agreed to pay a flat monthly fee
of $25,000 to the firm.  Importantly, the firm had been engaged
prior to the Debtors' Petition Date, in 2008 and in 2013, at which
times the firm was paid over $135,000.  The firm also performed
another $75,000 worth of work which was waived by the firm, the
Committee noted.

On the other hand, DECD opposes the financial terms negotiated
between the Debtors and the firm, and perhaps Wells Fargo, as
well.  Specifically, DECD is balking at the transaction fee of
$750,000, plus 6% of the consideration involved in a transaction
that exceeds $16 million.  Based on the information available to
DECD, it is not clear that these terms are reasonable for a
bankruptcy proceeding of this size and that the terms of the
engagement of the firm are in the best interest of the Debtors
given that the Debtors did not consider hiring any other
investment banking firm and broker.

                    The Debtors' Application

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on July 22, 2014,
the Debtor has tapped the firm to provide investment banking
services to the Debtors in connection with a potential financing
transaction, merger and acquisition transaction or restructuring
transaction. Specifically, Duff & Phelps, among other things:

   a. familiarize itself to the extent it deems appropriate with
      the business, operations, financial condition and prospects
      of the Debtors;

   b. assist the Debtors' management in (i) developing a strategy
      for pursuing the transactions, (ii) prepare a descriptive
      memorandum that describes the Debtors' operations and
      financial condition and includes current financial data and
      other appropriate information furnished by the Debtors and
      (iii) contacting and eliciting interest from those possible
      participants expressly approved by the Debtors; and

   c. participate with the Debtors and their counsel in
      negotiations relating to the transactions, assist or
      participate in negotiations with parties-in-interest,
      including, without limitation, any current or prospective
      creditors of, holders of equity in, or claimants against the
      Debtors and their respective representatives in connection
      with the transactions.

The terms of Duff & Phelps' retention and proposed compensation
includes:

   1. a consulting fee in the amount of $25,000 on the date the
      engagement agreement is executed and $25,000 on the
      conclusion of each of the next four 30 days periods
      thereafter; and

   2. upon the consummation of any transaction, the Company will
      pay D&P a cash fee (the transaction fee) equal to: $750,000,
      plus six percent of the consideration involved in a
      Transaction that exceeds 16 million dollars, payable in cash
      concurrently with closing of the transaction, subject to
      court approval;

In addition, the Debtors will reimburse Duff & Phelps for all out-
of-pocket expenses reasonably incurred, provided that the total
expenses will not exceed $50,000, will be paid from the proceeds
of a transaction.

According to the Debtors, as a result of prepetition work
performed for the Debtors, Duff & Phelps had a claim against the
Debtors in the amount of $75,000.  Duff & Phelps has since agreed
to waive the prepetition unsecured claim against the Debtors.

To the best of the Debtors' knowledge, Duff & Phelps is a
"disinterested person" as that term is defined in Section 101(14)
of the Bankruptcy Code.

LENNAR CORP: S&P Raises Corp. Credit Rating to BB; Outlook Stable
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services raised its corporate credit
rating on Lennar Corp. to 'BB' from 'BB-'.  The rating outlook is
stable.  At the same time, S&P raised its issue-level rating on
the company's senior unsecured debt to 'BB' from 'BB-'.  The
recovery rating on this debt is '3', indicating a "meaningful"
(50% to 70%) potential for recovery in the event of a default.

"Lennar has been particularly well positioned to benefit from the
ongoing -- albert uneven -- cyclical rebound in U.S. housing
markets, owing to its broad geographic diversity and high degree
of operating efficiency," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst
Scott Sprinzen.  The company has also benefited from relatively
low-cost land it acquired at the start of the current recovery in
market conditions.  While it had remained a relatively aggressive
acquirer of land until recently, the company is now acting to
reduce its investment in land, which should significantly boost
free cash flow generation.  Also, apart from its core single-
family home business, the company has invested in multifamily
projects in recent years, and should be able to monetize its
multifamily interests over the next two to three years as its
projects are completed and sold.  Moreover, Lennar's commercial
real estate unit, Rialto Investments (Rialto), has made rapid
progress in establishing its nascent funds management and
commercial loan origination businesses, and Rialto, too, could
well be a cash contributor over the next few years.

S&P's rating on Lennar Corp. now reflects its "fair" business risk
and "significant" (revised from "aggressive") financial risk
profile assessments for the company. Rating modifiers do not have
any impact on the rating outcome.

Lennar is one of the largest homebuilders in the U.S. U.S. new
home sales have been on a broadly improving trend since the severe
downturn of 2008 to 2011.  With demand growth continuing to be
bolstered by low interest rates, S&P expects this trend to
continue over the next two to three years, albeit at a slower pace
than during the first half of 2013.  Lennar has been well
positioned to benefit from improving industry fundamentals.  The
company operates on a national scale and is geographically
diversified across a number of relatively attractive regional
homebuilding markets.  The company has been gaining market share
and has benefited from significantly improved volume and selling
prices (net of incentives), which have more than offset higher
building costs.  In addition, the company benefited from
relatively low-cost land it acquired at the start of the current
recovery in market conditions.  The company had remained a
relatively aggressive acquirer of land until recently, and this
has entailed substantial inventory-related investment.  At May 31,
2014, it owned or controlled 164,000 homesites, equivalent to a
high seven-plus years of expected fiscal 2014 deliveries.
However, management has articulated a change to a more cautious
land acquisition strategy, and S&P expects the company to
significantly reduce land-related investment over the next few
years.

Apart from its core single-family home business, Lennar has
participated in the cyclically robust multifamily housing market
by taking minority interests in a range of development projects,
with such investments having a book value aggregating $136 million
as of May 31, 2014.  S&P believes that Lennar should be able to
monetize these investments and ongoing additional investments,
while realizing attractive returns, as it completes its projects.
Lennar also has a significant store of value in the form of its
FivePoint land development and management unit (approximately $350
million book value).

Lennar's sizable investment in wholly owned Rialto (Rialto
Holdings LLC, B+/Stable/--), which is a commercial real estate
investor, investment manager, and finance company, potentially
affords source of diversity.  S&P believes Rialto adds to business
risk for Lennar, particularly since Rialto is in the middle of a
transition to a new business model.  However, to date, Rialto has
made rapid progress in establishing its nascent funds management
and commercial loan origination businesses.  Also, Rialto should
be in a position to make additional cash distributions to Lennar
in coming years.  Still, S&P believes that there is uncertainty
regarding Lennar's longer-range strategy with respect to this
entity (which S&P views as "nonstrategic" under its group
methodology criteria).

The stable outlook reflects S&P's expectation that market
conditions for Lennar will remain broadly favorable over the next
two to three years and that Lennar will reduce its expenditures
for land, enabling the company to achieve further significant
improvement in credit protection measures, with debt to EBITDA
remaining comfortably below 4.0x.

Since the just-raised rating already takes account of
significantly improved near-term credit protection measures, S&P
currently views a further upgrade as unlikely within the one-year
time frame addressed by the outlook.  S&P would reassess its view
if the company took actions to deleverage the capital structure,
such that it came to expect debt/EBITDA to be less than 3.0x on a
sustained basis.

S&P could lower the rating if it came to expect that debt to
EBITDA would be materially more than 5x on a sustained basis, as a
result of some combination of difficult market conditions,
operating setbacks, or increased debt.

LONGVIEW POWER: Judge Rules $825M Policy Fight Not Core to Ch. 11
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Law360 reported that a Delaware bankruptcy judge ruled that a
coverage dispute Longview Power LLC has over an $825 million
policy is not a core proceeding in the coal plant operator's
Chapter 11 because the fight is actually between the insurer and
the collateral agent for the debtor's lenders.  According to the
report, in a 12-page opinion, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Brendan L.
Shannon wrote that while the coverage dispute with First American
Title Insurance Co. is clearly related to the coal plant
operator's Chapter 11 case, it is not a core proceeding.

                      About Longview Power LLC

Longview Power LLC is a special purpose entity created to
construct, own, and operate a 695 MW supercritical pulverized
coal-fired power plant located in Maidsville, West Virginia, just

Corporation (First Reserve or sponsor), a private equity firm
specializing in energy industry investments, through its affiliate
GenPower Holdings (Delaware), L.P., and 8% by minority interests.

Longview Power, LLC, filed a Chapter 11 (Bank. D. Del. Lead Case.
13-12211) on Aug. 30, 2013.  The petitions were signed by Jeffery
L. Keffer, the Company's chief executive officer, president,
treasurer and secretary.  The Debtor estimated assets and debts of
more than $1 billion.  Judge Brendan Linehan Shannon presides over
the case.  Kirkland & Ellis LLP and Richards, Layton & Finger,
P.A., serve as the Debtors' counsel.  Lazard Freres & Company LLC

America, LLC, is the Debtors' restructuring advisors.  Ernst &
Young serves as the Debtors' accountants.  The Debtors' claims
agent is Donlin, Recano & Co. Inc.

The Debtor disclosed assets of $1,717,906,595 plus undisclosed
amounts and liabilities of $1,075,748,155 plus undisclosed
amounts.

Roberta A. DeAngelis, U.S. Trustee for Region 3, disclosed that as
of September 11, 2013, a committee of unsecured creditors has not
been appointed in the case due to insufficient response to the
U.S. Trustee's communication/contact for service on the committee.


MERCATOR MINERALS: MPI Fails to Extend Forbearance Agreement
------------------------------------------------------------

August 1, 2014 press release, that its indirect wholly-owned

continuing defaults) under the Credit Facility beyond August 15,
2014.

The Company continues to fully consider its alternatives, which
may include filings for creditor protection.  At present, there
can be no assurance as to what, if any, alternatives might be

MMRGLOBAL INC: Voiced Disappointment Over Q2 Results
----------------------------------------------------
MMRGlobal, Inc., reported in its 10-Q filed Aug. 14, 2014, that
for the six months ended June 30, 2014, revenues were 26% greater
over 2013 despite the fact that second quarter revenues were lower
for the same period last year.  The Company was also focused on
its ongoing patent litigation matters during the second quarter.
In particular, MyMedicalRecords, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary
of MMRGlobal, has been preparing for an upcoming Markman hearing
pertaining to two of its patents, which was scheduled for Aug. 19,
2014 (MyMedicalRecords, Inc., United States District Court for the
Central District of California.

Notwithstanding the overall increase for the six-month period as
compared to 2013, the Company expressed disappointment over the
fact that certain events did not materialize in the second
quarter, including an earlier release date of its MyMedicalRecords
Personal Health Record Kit, which began appearing for sale in the
third quarter, specifically on Aug. 1, 2014.

In addition to the Company's continued focus on products, services
and sales during the second quarter, the Company expanded its
marketing efforts through the launch of an enriched content site,
which can be seen at http://goo.gl/vNIWp1and will be available to
retailers through Answers' Webcollage network --
http://is.gd/Ncll4W  Webcollage syndicates dynamic product
content to more than 500 retailers including Target, Staples,
Costco, Best Buy and Lowe's.

During the second quarter, the Company's attention also continued
to be focused on the protection and licensing of its intellectual
property, including monetizing its biotech assets, and in the
licensing and selling of its MyMedicalRecords Personal Health
Record products and services, as evidenced by the signing of
additional licensing agreements with Salutopia and Claydata during
an MMR trip to Australia.

According to MMRGlobal Chairman and CEO Robert H. Lorsch, "While
our second quarter revenue was disappointing, we are pleased with
our six-month performance and the other accomplishments we made in
the second quarter towards creating a stronger foundation for the
Company moving forward.  We expect that our efforts during the
second quarter, particularly with respect to the focus on the
launching of our products to retailers and continued licensing of
our intellectual property, will result in financial growth during
future quarters."  The Company plans on reporting revenues from
retail sales of its Personal Health Record Kit starting in the
third quarter public filings.

Through MyMedicalRecords, Inc., the Company also has a health IT
patent portfolio consisting of 13 issued U.S. patents, 17 pending
U.S. applications, and numerous issued patents and pending
applications in other countries or regional authorities of
commercial interest including Australia, Singapore, New Zealand,
Mexico, Japan, Canada, China, Hong Kong, South Korea, Israel and
Europe.  MMR sells its Personal Health Records products and
services and licenses its patented health information technologies
to physicians, hospitals, and other healthcare providers.

of health IT products and services, it also has a growing list of
patents related to cancer-fighting anti-CD20 monoclonal antibodies

Them," issued in the U.S., Mexico, Australia and South Korea with

doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern.

Wilmington Trust, National Association, argues in court papers
that the redemption of the 1.5 Lien Notes in connection with the
Debtors' Joint Chapter 11 Plan, filed on June 23, 2014, requires
the payment of a premium by these estates to the holders of the
1.5 Lien Note Claims.  Wilmington Trust is the Trustee for the
Momentive Performance Materials Inc. 10% Senior Secured Notes due
2020 -- 1.5 Lien Notes -- under the Indenture, dated as of May 25,
2012, by and between Momentive Performance Materials Inc. and The
Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, National Association.

It insists that the Debtors are not permitted to redeem the 1.5
Lien Notes prior to the October 15, 2015 No-Call Date without
payment of a redemption premium.  It said the parties intended the
Applicable Premium as liquidated damages to compensate the holders
of the 1.5 Lien Note Claims for the loss of their bargain to
receive coupon payments at an annual rate of 10% through the
stated maturity of the 1.5 Lien Notes.

In a 95-page document filed earlier this month, Wilmington Trust
says the Debtors and Apollo Global Management, LLC, which is
supporting the Debtors' Plan, misrepresent the terms of the
agreement between the 1.5 Lien Noteholders and the Debtors, as
reflected in the Indenture. They suggest that the 1.5 Lien
Noteholders somehow bargained away their right to the Applicable
Premium in consideration of the Debtors conceding to include in
the Indenture an automatic acceleration of obligations under the
1.5 Lien Notes upon a bankruptcy filing.  This suggestion is
untrue, not supported by either the language of the Indenture or
fundamental principles of law, and simply illogical.

MPM is an issuer of $1.1 billion of 8.875% First-Priority Senior
Secured Notes due 2020 -- First Lien Notes -- issued pursuant to
an Indenture, dated as of October 25, 2012, with BONY as indenture
trustee and certain other Debtors, other than Momentive
Performance Materials Holdings Inc. as guarantors.  The First Lien
Notes mature on October 15, 2020.

MPM is also an issuer of $250 million of 10% Senior Secured Notes
due 2020 -- 1.5 Lien Notes -- issued pursuant to an Indenture
dated as of May 25, 2012, with Wilmington Trust, N.A. as successor
indenture trustee and the other Plaintiffs, other than Holdings,
as guarantors.  The 1.5 Lien Notes mature on October 15, 2020.
The terms of the Indentures permit MPM to redeem the Notes
voluntarily prior to October 15, 2015.

Wilmington Trust points out that Section 5.5 of the Debtors' Plan
provides that holders of Allowed Class 5 Claims (which include 1.5
Lien Noteholders) shall receive either: (i) if Class 5 accepts the
Plan, cash in an aggregate amount equal to such holder's pro rata
share of the principal plus accrued interest due on the Notes
(expressly waiving any make-whole claim, prepayment penalty, or
similar claim) or (ii) if Class 5 rejects the Plan, a replacement
note with a present value equal to the allowed amount of such
holder's 1.5 Lien Note Claim (i.e., principal plus accrued
interest), which may also include any applicable make-whole claim,
prepayment penalty, or Applicable Premium, to the extent allowed
by the Bankruptcy Court.

Section 5.7 of the Plan provides that holders of allowed general
unsecured claims shall either be reinstated or shall receive
payment in full in cash, plus postpetition interest.

On July 18, 2014, the Bankruptcy Court entered an order
authorizing the Debtors to enter into a commitment letter for a
$250 million bridge financing.  The Debtors propose to use the
proceeds of the Bridge Financing to fund the payment of principal
and accrued interest on the 1.5 Lien Notes if the 1.5 Lien
Noteholders vote as a class to accept the Plan.

Thus, pursuant to the Plan, the 1.5 Lien Notes will be redeemed in
exchange for either (i) the cash proceeds of the Bridge Financing
absent the Applicable Premium or (ii) the Replacement 1.5 Lien
Notes, Wilmington Trust tells the Court.

On May 9, 2014, the Debtors commenced an adversary proceeding
against Wilmington Trust seeking, inter alia, declaratory judgment
that the commencement of these chapter 11 cases did not trigger an
obligation for the Debtors to pay the Applicable Premium under the
1.5 Lien Indenture and the 1.5 Lien Notes.

The Debtors also commenced a separate adversary proceeding on the
same day against the First Lien Indenture Trustee seeking
substantially the same relief with respect to the First Lien
Indenture and the First Lien Notes.

On June 25, 2014 and June 30, 2014, the Ad Hoc Committee and
Apollo, respectively, intervened as plaintiffs in the adversary
proceeding.

A copy of Wilmington Trust's filing is available at no extra
charge at:

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

Wilmington Trust has filed motion for modification of the
automatic stay to permit delivery of a deceleration notice of the
1.5 Lien Notes, or, alternatively, for adequate protection.

The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A., in its capacity
as First Lien Trustee, filed a joinder of the Motion.  BONY has
since been replaced by BOKF, N.A. as First Lien Trustee.

The Debtors object to the Motion, arguing in a 24-page document
that Wilmington Trust has not established, and cannot establish,
cause to modify the automatic stay.  By the Motion, the Trustee
seeks relief from the automatic stay to permit the delivery of a
rescission notice and, in effect, undo the automatic acceleration
of the 1.5 Lien Notes that occurred as a result of the Debtors'
bankruptcy filing.  The Trustee, the Debtors argue, is required to
obtain relief from the stay because serving such a notice would
interfere with the Debtors' contractual rights under the indenture
governing those Notes.

A copy of the Debtors' papers is available at:

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

The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors has expressed its
support to the Debtors' opposition.  According to the Committee,
Wilmington Trust's Attempted Rescission Motion rests on the idea
that the indenture trustees can take steps postpetition (i.e.,
rescind the acceleration that occurred automatically on the
Petition Date in accordance with their indentures) and thereby
resurrect Make-Whole Claims that otherwise do not exist under the
indentures.  This idea, the Committee said, flies in the face of
the centuries-old bankruptcy principle "that everything stops at a
certain date" and thus all rights against a debtor's estate (i.e.,
"a right in rem against the assets") are fixed on the Petition
Date as if "the whole matter could be settled in a day by a pie-
powder court."

The Committee also pointed out that the first and 1.5 lien
creditors are secured creditors toward the top of the Debtors'
capital structure with liens on substantial assets, which liens
largely overlap with the liens of the second lien creditors. The
allowance of any Make-Whole Claims would increase these senior
secured claims by over $200 million, and thereby materially
increase the deficiency claim of the second lien creditors.  The
Committee contends that this increased deficiency claim is
prejudicial not only to the second lien creditors, but also to the
holders of those certain 11.5% Senior Subordinated Notes due 2016
if those holders prevail in the subordination litigation and
potentially to other general unsecured creditors.

The Committee also noted that the Debtors' current restructuring
may be impacted by the resolution of the Make-Whole Claims.  If
the Make-Whole Claims are not resolved in a fashion that is
satisfactory to the backstop parties, then those parties could
potentially refuse to fund into the rights offering, and the
Debtors' current restructuring strategy could crumble.

U.S. Bank National Association -- as successor Indenture Trustee
under the indenture dated as of December 4, 2006, among Momentive
Performance Materials Inc., the Guarantors named in the Indenture,
and Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. as initial trustee, governing the 11.5%
Senior Subordinated Notes due 2016 -- also lodged an objection to
the Plan.

"Nothing could be more important to a lender than its ability to
get paid. And where a lender must stand in line -- and wait
(indeed hope) to get paid a penny until after another party has
been paid in full from a limited pot of assets -- that lender's
indebtedness is plainly subordinate and junior, and not just in
some technical or theoretical respect. The lender who cannot get
paid unless and until someone else does is subordinated in a way
that goes to the very heart of the lender's economic interests
(namely his indebtedness and recovery thereupon)," U.S. Bank said.

U.S. Bank contends that for the Plan to be confirmable, the Plan
Proponents must establish that the Debtors' Second-Priority Notes
fit within the Indenture's definition of Senior Indebtedness.
That definition excludes any Indebtedness or obligation that "by
its terms is subordinate or junior in any respect| to any other
Indebtedness or obligation of the Debtors.  Because the Second-
Priority Notes are subordinate and junior to the Debtors' Senior
Lender Claims, not just "in any respect," but in several
significant respects, the Plan cannot be confirmed.

As of Dec. 31, 2013, the Company had 4,500 employees worldwide, of
which 46% of the Company's employees are members of a labor union
or are represented by workers' councils that have collective
bargaining agreements.

Momentive Performance Materials Inc., Momentive Performance
Materials Holdings Inc., and their affiliates sought Chapter 11
protection (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Lead Case No. 14-22503) on April 14,

MOMENTIVE PERFORMANCE: Dispute on Plan Release Provisions
---------------------------------------------------------
Wilmington Trust, National Association argues that the bankruptcy-
exit Plan for Momentive Performance Materials Inc. and its debtor-
affiliates should not be confirmed because it grants certain of
the Debtors' stakeholders -- including the Debtors' own
controlling shareholder, Apollo Global Management, LLC --
sweepingly broad involuntary third-party releases that both exceed
the jurisdictional power of the Bankruptcy Court and fail to meet
the requirements for such releases as established by the Court of
Appeals for the Second Circuit in Deutsche Bank AG, London Branch
v. Metromedia Fiber Network, Inc. (In re Metromedia Fiber Network,
Inc.), 416 F.3d 136 (2d Cir. 2005).

Wilmington Trust is the Trustee for the Momentive Performance
Materials Inc. 10% Senior Secured Notes due 2020 -- 1.5 Lien Notes
-- under the Indenture, dated as of May 25, 2012, by and between
Momentive Performance Materials Inc. and The Bank of New York
Mellon Trust Company, National Association.

The Involuntary Third-Party Releases, Wilmington Trust says, would
impermissibly extinguish the 1.5 Lien Indenture Trustee's state-
law causes of action for breach of contract against Apollo and
certain other of the Debtors' junior lenders, which claims are the
subject of pending intercreditor litigation commenced by the 1.5
Lien Indenture Trustee in New York Supreme Court.

Wilmington Trust also argues that both the Involuntary Third-Party
Releases, and the proposed plan's attempt to extinguish the Second
Lien Intercreditor Agreement, violate section 510(a) of the
Bankruptcy Code.

The success or failure of the 1.5 Lien Indenture Trustee with
respect to those claims "does not alter the Debtors' rights,
liabilities, options or freedom of action, nor need it impact the
handling and administration of the Chapter 11 Cases," Wilmington
Trust says, citing Celotex Corp. v. Edwards, 514 U.S. 300, 308 n.5
(1995) (quoting Pacor, Inc. v. Higgins, 743 F.2d 984, 994 (3d Cir.
1984)). Further, pursuant to well-established case law in this and
other jurisdictions, the Debtors' postpetition decision to oblige
themselves to indemnify their current shareholder, Apollo, as well
as their future shareholders, cannot create a basis for
jurisdiction (or, for that matter, a sufficient justification for
an involuntary third-party release) that would not have otherwise
existed.

Releases is available at:

Company, N.A., as trustee under that indenture dated as of October
25, 2012, for the 8.875% First-Priority Senior Secured Notes due

guaranteed by certain of the debtors -- also raised objections to
the proposed Plan release provisions.  A copy of BOKF's 37-page

The Dow Chemical Company and its domestic and foreign subsidiaries
and affiliates, including but not limited to Union Carbide
Corporation and Rohm and Haas Chemicals LLC, filed a limited
objection, also complaining that the Plan improperly discharges
claims and causes of action against non-debtor affiliates.

Dow maintains numerous and varied purchase, sale and other
relationships with the Debtors and the Non-Debtor Affiliates on a
global basis.  In connection with its relationships with the Non-
Debtor Affiliates, Dow said it holds or may hold certain claims,
defenses or causes of action.

Union Carbide and MPM Silicones, LLC are parties to a civil action
pending in the District Court of the District of New York known as
MPM Silicones, LLC v. Union Carbide Corporation, Civil Action No.
11-01542.  Pursuant to Article 12.8 of the Plan, the UCC/MPM
Litigation and any and all other Claims and Causes of Action the
Debtors may hold against Dow are to be retained and reserved for
the Reorganized Debtors.

According to Dow, certain provisions of the Plan are impermissibly
broad such that Dow may be enjoined from defensively pursuing or
asserting any Claims, Causes of Action or applicable defenses
(including rights of setoff, contribution and recoupment) in
connection with the UCC/MPM Litigation and/or any other Retained
Causes of Action asserted against it after the Effective Date.

MOMENTIVE PERFORMANCE: Gov't Objects After Tax Provision Removed
----------------------------------------------------------------
The United States of America lodged an objection to the proposed
Joint Chapter 11 Plan of Reorganization for Momentive Performance
Materials Inc. and its affiliated debtors after the Debtors
removed standard protective language regarding federal tax
liability and treatment in the Plan.

Specifically, the Plan filed on June 23, 2014, struck the language
contained in Section 12.5(g) in its entirety.  The removal of this
standard plan language, the government says, creates concern that
the Plan will be interpreted so as to allow premature tax
liability determinations or treatment, particularly in light of
specific provisions in the Plan that relate to federal tax
consequences and can be read as binding on the United States.

The Debtors represented to the government that this deletion was
made at the request of an ad hoc group of second lien noteholders
and agreed to extend that deadline for the government to object to
the Plan.  The government and the second lien noteholders have
been unable to reach agreement with respect to the omission of
this language, necessitating the filing of the Plan Objection.

The government also noted that it and the second lien noteholders
have reached resolution with respect to certain disputed language
in Sections 12.5(d)-(f) of the Plan, and the government expects
that such resolution will be reflected in future amendments to the
Plan or Confirmation Order.

MOMENTIVE PERFORMANCE: First Lien Trustee Files Plan Objection
--------------------------------------------------------------
BankruptcyData reported that BOKF, NA, as first lien trustee,
filed with U.S. Bankruptcy Court an objection to Momentive
Performance Materials' Joint Chapter 11 Plan and confirmation of
the plan with respect to the terms of the replacement first lien
notes.

According to BData, the objection explains, "The Debtors, their
equity sponsor Apollo and the Ad Hoc Committee of Second Lien
Noteholders are attempting to improperly 'cramdown' the Claims of
the holders of the First Lien Notes (the 'First Lien Noteholders')
notwithstanding the fact that the treatment provided in the Plan
cannot pass muster under any legal test or theory and that such
treatment is not 'fair and equitable' as is required under section
1129(b) of title 11 of the United States Code (the 'Bankruptcy
Code'). In pushing forward their non-confirmable Plan, the Debtors
have intentionally ignored the one fact that sets this case apart
from each and every reported cram down decision: The Debtors have
already obtained a commitment for Exit Financing ...to repay the
Claims of the First Lien Noteholders. The Exit Financing and the
Bridge Financing ...constitute indisputable evidence of the
appropriate rate of interest, tenor and other terms for the
Replacement First Lien Notes once flex and fees are determined and
have already been approved by this Court. Moreover, the Post-
Petition Lenders...who have executed the financing commitments
have expressly evaluated the Debtors' credit risk profile and have
priced the Exit Financing and Bridge Financing to compensate the
Post-Petition Lenders for undertaking that risk. For the Debtors
now to assert that this Court should quantify the Debtors' credit
risk differently than the Debtors have already determined through,
based on the representations of the Debtors, arms'-length and good
faith negotiations with third-party lenders is contrived at best."

NATIONAL MENTOR: S&P Retains 'B' CCR on CreditWatch Positive
------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said its 'B' corporate credit
rating and issue-level ratings on National Mentor Holdings Inc.
remain on CreditWatch with positive implications.

The company's indirect parent Civitas Solutions Inc. is still
seeking to raise $250 million of equity.  An S-1 registration

responding to SEC comments and is positioned to enter the market

proceeds net of fees to redeem the $212 million outstanding senior
notes.

Following the equity raise, S&P will review the company's
corporate credit rating and issue-level ratings.  Upgrade
potential is likely limited to one notch.  The company's improved
credit metrics following the debt pay will prompt a
reconsideration of S&P's financial risk assessment to "aggressive"
from "highly leveraged" and the company's "weak" business risk
profile will remain unchanged.

NEWS-JOURNAL CORP: Must Pay Pension Before Shareholder
------------------------------------------------------
Law360 reported that a Florida federal judge ruled that bankrupt
News-Journal Corp. made improper distributions to shareholder Cox
Enterprises Inc. before paying more than $13 million in claims for
pension benefits.  According to the report, U.S. District Judge
John Antoon II said Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp., which holds a
$13,887,822 claim for unfunded pension benefit liabilities, should
have been paid before Cox because News-Journal was insolvent at
the time of payment.  Florida law prohibits a distribution to a
shareholder if the distribution would render the corporation
insolvent, Law360 said.

                           Receivership

News-Journal is the publisher of the Daytona Beach News-Journal
and six local shopping guides through its wholly-owned subsidiary,
the Volusia Pennysaver, Inc.  On April 17, 2009, the
communications company, Cox Enterprises Inc., asked the U.S.
District Court for the Middle District of Florida to place News-
Journal into receivership.  The request was made following News-
Journal's inability to pay a judgment in Cox's favor.

On Jan. 6, 2010, the court-appointed receiver, James W. Hopson,
and Cox filed a joint motion for approval of an asset purchase
agreement that would establish the sale of substantially all of
News-Journal's publishing assets to Halifax Media Acquisition LLC.
The sale was approved by the District Court on March 23, 2010.


NII HOLDINGS: In Restructuring Talks With Noteholders & Lenders
---------------------------------------------------------------
NII Holdings, Inc., disclosed in a regulatory filing with the U.S.
Securities and Exchange Commission that it has engaged in
preliminary discussions with certain of the holders of the senior
notes issued by its subsidiaries, NII Capital Corp. and NII
International Telecom S.C.A., and their advisors regarding a
potential restructuring of the Senior Notes.  NII has also engaged
in discussions with the lenders under the equipment financing
facilities with NII's subsidiaries in Brazil and Mexico and bank
loans with NII's subsidiaries in Brazil with respect to potential
waivers and amendments to the terms of the Local Facilities.

The Company said that discussions with the Holders and Local
Lenders are continuing and no agreement has been reached at this
time with those parties regarding the terms of any potential
restructuring or amendment of the terms of the Senior Notes or the
Local Facilities.  The parties have discussed informal proposals
and potential approaches to the restructuring that include
possible exchanges of all or a portion of the Senior Notes for
equity interests in, or debt securities of, a reorganized NII as
well as potential modifications to certain covenants and other
terms of the Local Facilities.

In connection with those discussions, NII has also agreed to pay
the fees of legal and financial advisors to certain Holders,
subject to certain terms and conditions set forth in the
applicable agreements entered into by NII.

"There can be no assurance that these discussions will result in
any agreement regarding the terms of any potential restructuring
of NII's obligations under the Senior Notes or any potential
amendments to the Local Facilities that may be necessary in order
to implement such a restructuring.  If an agreement is reached and
NII pursues a restructuring either on a stand-alone basis or in
conjunction with one or more other potential strategic
transactions as described in the Form 10-Q, NII expects that it
will be necessary to voluntarily commence reorganization
proceedings under chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code
in order to implement it," the Company said in a document filed
with the SEC.

In connection with these discussions, NII entered into
confidentiality agreements with each of the Holders pursuant to
which NII provided certain information to the Holders.  NII also
agreed to make the Disclosed Information publicly available.

The Disclosed Information is available for free at:

Notwithstanding NII's entry into these discussions and the
Company's disclosure, NII's position remains unchanged with
respect to the allegations contained in the notice of default
delivered on March 19, 2014, by Aurelius Capital Management, LP in
connection with our 8.875% senior notes due 2019.

                         About NII Holdings

With headquarters in Reston, Virginia, NII Holdings is an

assets, $8.19 billion in total liabilities and a $8.76 million
total stockholders' deficit.

                             *   *    *

The TCR on Aug. 14, 2014, reported that Moody's Investors Service
had downgraded the corporate family rating (CFR) of NII Holdings
Inc. ("NII" or "the company") to Caa2 from Caa1.  The downgrade
reflects Moody's expectation that bankruptcy filing is more likely
as a result of the company's inability to find a strategic
solution to extend its liquidity.  The company is currently not in
compliance with certain financial covenants in its existing debt
obligations which could trigger an event of default for up to $4.4
billion of debt issued by intermediate holding companies NII
Capital Corp. ("NII Capital") and NII International Telecom S.C.A
("NIII Telecom").  At the same time, Moody's has lowered the
probability of default rating (PDR) to Caa2-PD from Caa1-PD while
affirming the SGL-4 speculative grade liquidity.  As part of the
rating action, Moody's has also downgraded the unsecured notes at
NII Capital to Caa3 from Caa2 and the unsecured notes at NII
Telecom to Caa1 from B3.  Outlook remains negative.

The Aug. 15, 2014 version of the TCR reported that Standard &
Poor's Ratings Services lowered the corporate credit rating on
Reston, Va.-based wireless carrier NII Holdings Inc. to 'CC' from
'CCC'.  The outlook is negative.


NORTEL NETWORKS: Toronto Judge Says Bondholders Can't Get Interest
------------------------------------------------------------------
Peg Brickley, writing for The Wall Street Journal, reported that
Justice Frank Newbould, in Toronto, has rejected a bid by
investors to collect interest on some $4 billion of bonds issued
by now-defunct telecommunications company Nortel Networks Corp.
According to the report, Justice Newbould said interest on the
Nortel bonds stopped accruing when the former telecommunications
giant sought protection from its creditors around the world.

                        About Nortel Networks

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


NPC INT'L: S&P Revises Outlook to Negative & Affirms 'B' CCR
------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services revised its outlook to negative
from stable and affirmed its 'B' corporate credit rating on
Overland Park, Kansas-based NPC International Inc.  S&P also
affirmed its 'B' issue-level ratings on the company's revolver and
term loan.  The '3' recovery rating is unchanged and indicates
S&P's expectation for meaningful (50%-70%) recovery in the event
of a payment default.  S&P also affirmed its 'CCC+' issue-level
rating on the senior notes.  The '6' recovery rating is unchanged
and indicates S&P's expectation for negligible (0%-10%) recovery
in the event of default.

"The outlook revision reflects our view that NPC's weak operating
performance may persist as competitive challenges have fueled
declining sales.  Pizza Hut's comparable-store sales declined 5.6%
in the quarter, while gross margin has declined 210 basis points
in the past year in part because of an increase in commodity costs
including for meat and cheese.  As a result, adjusted EBITDA
declined 30% in the year-to-date compared with the prior year
period," said credit analyst Diya Iyer.

The negative outlook reflects S&P's expectation that weak sales
trends and limited cost savings will continue to pressure
operating performance in the next 12 months, causing credit
metrics to further weaken.  S&P also expects significant ongoing
industry competition in the coming year.

Downside Scenario

S&P could lower its rating if NPC's operating performance
continues to weaken as a result of negative same-store sales amid
increased competitive pressure -- especially in the pizza industry
-- or if commodity price increases are greater than S&P expects,
causing NPC's gross margin to erode by more than 200 basis points.
S&P thinks this would lead to an EBITDA decline of about 15%,
causing debt leverage to increase to the 6.0x area and pushing
interest coverage toward 2.0x.

Upside Scenario

Although an outlook revision to stable is unlikely over the near
term given S&P's view of NPC's worsening position within the pizza
industry, S&P could consider such an action if the company can
sustain positive same-store sales and stable gross margins,
resulting in leverage in the mid-4.0x range and coverage in the
mid-3.0x range on a sustained basis.  S&P would also consider an
outlook revision if private equity owners reduce their ownership
well below a majority stake, lowering company debt and
consequently, interest expense.


PANACHE BEVERAGE: Delays Form 10-Q for Second Quarter 2014
----------------------------------------------------------
Panache Beverage Inc. filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange
Commission a Notification of Late Filing on Form 12b-25 with
respect to its quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended
June 30, 2014.  The Company stated that certain financial and
other information necessary for an accurate and full completion of
the Form 10-Q could not be provided within the prescribed time
period without unreasonable effort or expense.

The Company expects to report a net gain from operations before
non-controlling interest for the quarter ended June 30, 2014, of
approximately $995,650, compared to a loss of approximately
$953,888 for the quarter ended June 30, 2013.  The increase is due
primarily to the Company's second quarter 2014 restructuring.
While net revenues have decreased from approximately $1,425,435
for the quarter ended June 30, 2013, to approximately $655,690 for
the quarter ended June 30, 2014, the results of the restructuring
have significantly decreased operating expenses from $1,478,054
for the quarter ended June 30, 2013, to approximately $495,680 for
the quarter ended June 30, 2014.  In addition to the significant
decrease in operating expenses, the restructuring also resulted in
an increase in other income from associated debt restructuring.

pipe for the water- and gas-transmission industries, obtained
bankruptcy court authority to to sell its business to Jindal
Tubular USA LLC for $100 million, including assumption of debt.

According to Law360, Jindal's bid was the only bid after no
qualified bidders emerged to challenge the stalking horse bid by
the Aug. 11 deadline.  The pipe maker cancelled the auction,
Law360.

To address an objection by pre-bankruptcy lender Standard
Chartered Bank, Jindal Tubular previously agreed to increase the
cash component of the purchase price by $4 million to $104
million, Mr. Rochelle said, citing a court order.  PSL said all
but one objection to the sale has been resolved, Mr. Rochelle
added.

PSL-NORTH AMERICA: Proposes Key Employee Incentive Plan

The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware will
convene a hearing on Aug. 27, 2014, at 2:00 p.m., to consider PSL-
North America LLC, et al.'s motion for authorization to implement

possession while they endeavor to maximize value through a
successful sale process.  Its participants initially include six
employees, with the option to include additional key employees

insider of the Debtors.  The retention plan provides a bonus of
30% of each participant's base salary provided that the terms of

bonuses in his discretion to key employees who are neither

PT-1 COMMUNICATIONS: 2nd Circ. Axes $3.8M Tax Refund Case
---------------------------------------------------------
Law360 reported that the Second Circuit overturned a $3.8 million
tax refund award, the result of deals made more than a decade ago,
given to a trustee of bankrupt PT-1 Communications Inc. after
finding the bankruptcy court that awarded the money didn't have
the authority to determine the refund claim.  According to the
report, Edward Bond, PT-1's liquidating trustee and a
representative of the company's bankruptcy estate, filed and
received the claim from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern
District of New York, but the Second Circuit pointed out that tax
refund claims in bankruptcy must be filed with the Internal
Revenue Service by the bankruptcy trustee, an individual who is
distinct from the liquidating trustee.

The case is U.S. v. Edward P. Bond, Liquidating Trustee of the
Liquidating Trust U/A/W PT1 Communications Inc., case number 12-
4803, in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.

PT-1 Communications, Inc., PT-1 Long Distance, Inc., and PT-1
Technologies, Inc., sought chapter 11 protection (Bankr. E.D.N.Y.
Case Nos. 01-12655, 01-12658, and 01-12660) on March 9, 2001.  The
Debtors filed their Second Amended Joint Plan of Reorganization
dated as of Aug. 31, 2004, and the Bankruptcy Court confirmed
that plan on Nov. 23, 2004.

Laurence May, Esq., and Greg Friedman, Esq., at Cole, Schotz,
Meisel, Forman & Leonard, P.A., in New York, represent Edward P.
Bond, the Liquidating Trustee of the Liquidating Trust U/A/W PT-1
Communications, Inc., PT-1 Long Distance, Inc., and PT-1
Technologies, Inc.


RIVER CITY RENAISSANCE: DSI Employment Terms Revised
----------------------------------------------------
River City Renaissance, LC, and River City Renaissance III, LC,
amended the application to employ Development Specialists, Inc.,
as liquidating representative -- including providing the services
of Joseph J. Luzinski to serve as the DSI professional primarily
responsible for the engagement -- filed in the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the Eastern District of Virginia.

In the Debtors' amended application, Mr. Luzinski will also owe
fiduciary duties to the Debtors' bankruptcy estates and that he,
along with DSI, will be the primary designee on behalf of the
Debtors.  Among those duties and responsibilities, Mr. Luzinski
and DSI will appear at the Debtors' Section 341 Meeting of
Creditors as the Debtor-Designee, make operational decisions on
the Debtors' behalf, and operate and control the Debtors' bank
accounts, including, without limitation, the approval of all
advances and expenditures on the Debtors' behalf, as directed
by Judge Huennekens on Aug. 1, 2014.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Aug. 15, 2014,
the Debtors sought authority from the Court to hire the firm to
provide reorganization and liquidation management services.

The hourly billing rates for the proposed consultants are as
follows:

     Joseph J. Luzinski           $570
     Yale S. Bogen                $435
     George S. Shoup              $395
     Edward C. Dean               $275

     Senior Consultants           $550-$675
     Consultants                  $315-$435
     Junior Consultants            $95-$260

It is proposed that a $50,000 retainer be paid to DSI; $25,000 of
which will come from funds currently held in trust at Spotts Fain
PC, and the balance of which will come from the Debtors.

River City Renaissance, LC, and River City Renaissance III, LC,
sought Chapter 11 protection (Bankr. E.D. Va. Case Nos. 14-34080
and 14-34081) in Richmond, Virginia, on July 30, 2014.  The cases
are assigned to Judge Keith L. Phillips.  Richmond, Virginia-based
River City Renaissance estimated $10 million to $50 million in
assets and debts.  Renaissance III estimated less than $10 million
in assets and debts.  The Debtors have tapped Spotts Fain PC as
counsel.


ROTHSTEIN ROSENFELDT: Trustee Wants Bid To Victim Info Nixed
------------------------------------------------------------
Law360 reported that the trustee charged with liquidating Scott
Rothstein's law firm told a Florida federal judge and a bankruptcy
judge that he shouldn't have to provide allegedly sealed
information to 55 investors victimized by Rothstein's $1.2 billion
Ponzi scheme.  According to the report, counsel for Michael I.
Goldberg, the liquidating trustee, told the courts that several
interrogatories by Razorback Funding LLC regarding the approval of
a settlement with the federal government pending before the
bankruptcy court seek the disclosure of victims' data that falls
under the protection of a seal order and a protective order.

                    About Rothstein Rosenfeldt

Scott Rothstein, co-founder of law firm Rothstein Rosenfeldt Adler
PA -- http://www.rra-law.com/-- was suspected of running a
$1.2 billion Ponzi scheme.  U.S. authorities claimed in a civil
forfeiture lawsuit filed Nov. 9, 2009, that Mr. Rothstein, the
firm's former chief executive officer, sold investments in non-
existent legal settlements.  Mr. Rothstein pleaded guilty to five
counts of conspiracy and wire fraud on Jan. 27, 2010.

Creditors of Rothstein Rosenfeldt Adler signed a petition sending
the Florida law firm to bankruptcy (Bankr. S.D. Fla. Case No.
09-34791).  The petitioners include Bonnie Barnett, who says she
lost $500,000 in legal settlement investments; Aran Development,
Inc., which said it lost $345,000 in investments; and trade
creditor Universal Legal, identified as a recruitment firm, which
said it is owed $7,800.  The creditors alleged being owed money
invested in lawsuit settlements.

Herbert M. Stettin, the state-court appointed receiver for
Rothstein Rosenfeldt, was officially carried over as the
Chapter 11 trustee in the involuntary bankruptcy case.

On June 10, 2010, Mr. Rothstein was sentenced to 50 years in
prison.

The official committee of unsecured creditors appointed in the
case is represented by Michael Goldberg, Esq., at Akerman
Senterfitt.

RRA won approval of an amended liquidating Chapter 11 plan
pursuant to the Court's July 17, 2013 confirmation order.  The
revised plan, filed in May, is centered around a $72.4 million
settlement payment from TD Bank NA.


RP CROWN: S&P Lowers CCR to 'B-' on Weak Operating Performance
--------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it lowered its
corporate credit rating on Scottsdale, Ariz.-based RP Crown Parent
LLC to 'B-' from 'B'.  The outlook is negative.

"At the same time, we lowered our issue-level rating on the
company's first-lien senior secured credit facilities to 'B' from
'B+'; the '2' recovery rating is unchanged and indicates our
expectation for substantial recovery (70% to 90%) in the event of
payment default.  We also lowered our issue-level rating on its
second-lien term loan to 'CCC' from 'CCC+'; the '6' recovery
rating is unchanged and indicates our expectation for negligible
recovery (0% to 10%) in the event of payment default, S&P noted.

"The rating action reflects license sales and profits that are
lower than expected, which has precluded the leverage reduction we
had anticipated," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Christian
Frank.  "We now expect leverage to rise to the 10x area in 2014
from 8.9x in 2013 and that cash flow after all debt service will
be meaningfully negative," added Mr. Frank.

The negative outlook reflects the potential downside risk to the
rating if JDA's sales and professional services efforts do not
result in improved operating results in 2015, with higher software
license sales, lower leverage, and positive cash generation.

For the first half of 2014, revenues fell partly because of a
double-digit decline in license sales from already low 2013
levels.  Important factors leading to this result were a change in
the sales model to focus on larger, more complex engagements with
longer sales cycles, and post-sale implementation issues on legacy
contracts that have delayed new purchases from affected customers.
Realized cost savings mitigated the revenue decline in the first
half, such that EBITDA was roughly flat from the prior year, but
S&P expects full-year 2014 EBITDA to decline as the year-over-year
improvement in costs is less significant in the second half, and
as license sales remain below 2013 levels.  S&P also expects that
JDA will have negative free operating cash flow.


S.B. RESTAURANT: Has Going-Concern Buyer in Chalak Mitra Unit
-------------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that Elephant Bar, a chain of 29 restaurants in seven
states, will be sold to CM7 Capital Partners LLC, an affiliate of
Chalak Mitra Group, for about $1.25 million in cash.  The buyer
will aso pay designated claims to vendors and assume specified
liabilities, the report related.

According to the report, originally, the buyer was to be Cerberus
Business Finance LLC, as agent for the pre-bankruptcy and post-
bankruptcy lenders, but Cerberus bowed out when CM7 offered to
sign a contract and operate the chain.  Included among assumed
liabilities is an exit financing credit agreement, under which
Cerberus will lend as much as $18.3 million to finance operations,
the report said.

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. 14-13778)
on June 17, 2014, in Santa Ana, California.  The case is assigned
to Judge Erithe A. Smith.

The Debtors' counsel is Jeffrey N Pomerantz, Esq., and John W.
Lucas, Esq., at Pachulski Stang Ziehl & Jones LLP, in Los Angeles,
California.  The Debtors' chief restructuring officers are from
Deloitte Transactions & Business Analytics LLP, while their

SENSATA TECHNOLOGIES: Moody's Puts B2 CFR on Review for Downgrade
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service placed under review for downgrade
Sensata Technologies B.V.'s ("Sensata") Ba2 Corporate Family
Rating (CFR), Ba2-PD Probability of Default Rating (PDR), the Baa2
ratings on the company's senior facilities (revolver and term
loan), and the Ba3 rating on its senior unsecured notes. The
review for downgrade follows the company's announcement that it
will be acquiring the Schrader International (Schrader), also
known as August Cayman (Rated B2 CFR), from Madison Dearborn
Partners, LLC for a total enterprise value of $1 billion in a debt
financed acquisition. Schrader is a global provider of tire
pressure monitoring sensors. Sensata's SGL-1 speculative grade
liquidity rating remains unchanged but could change as the
combined company's liquidity profile becomes more clear.

Ratings Rationale

Sensata's Ba2 CFR has been based on a number of factors including
the company's leverage on a Moody's adjusted basis of
approximately 2.9x for the LTM period ended June 30, 2014. The
acquisition is anticipated to increase leverage by around 1.25
turns and result in leverage of over 4x on a Moody's adjusted
basis. This leverage level is high for the ratings category and
would place the company close to reaching the downward rating
driver of 4.5x published in Moody's research. Accordingly, there
would be little room for the company to miss its projections
without placing additional pressure on the rating. In Moody's
review of Sensata's ratings, Moody's will consider the company's
acquisition strategy including its willingness to make additional
large debt financed acquisitions particularly given that the
Schrader acquisition is larger than Moody's had anticipated and
given the lack of equity to be used in funding the transaction.
Moody's will also consider the business profile of the combined
company and Sensata's ability to delever its balance sheet post
the acquisition.

SKILLED HEALTHCARE: Moody's Keeps CFR on Genesis Healthcare Deal
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service said that the announced combination of
Skilled Healthcare Group Inc. with Genesis Healthcare (FC-Gen
Operations Investment, B3 stable) has no immediate impact on
Skilled Healthcare's ratings, including the company's B2 Corporate
Family Rating and stable outlook.

Headquartered in Foothill Ranch, CA, Skilled Healthcare Group,
Inc. operates long-term care facilities and provides a variety of
post-acute care services. The company operates skilled nursing
facilities ("SNF"), assisted living facilities, hospice and home
health locations. Further, the company provides ancillary services
such as physical, occupational and speech therapy in its
facilities and unaffiliated facilities as well as is a member of a
joint venture providing institutional pharmacy services in Texas.
Skilled Healthcare recognized revenues of approximately $831
million for the last twelve months ended June 30, 2014. Skilled
Healthcare is a publicly traded company (NYSE: SKH).


SPECTRASCIENCE INC: Posts $1.17 Million Net Loss in Q2 2014
-----------------------------------------------------------
SpectraScience, Inc., posted a net loss of $1,170,343 on $0
revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2014, against a net
loss of $663,930 on revenues of $120,000 for the same period in
2013.

SpectraScience posted a net loss of $4,420,500 on $0 revenues for
the six months ended June 30, 2014, against a net loss of
$3,287,026 on revenues of $120,000 for the same period in 2013.

The Company had total assets of $2,472,810 against total
liabilities, all current, of $8,260,898 at June 30, 2014.

The Company expects to incur significant additional operating
losses through at least the end of 2014, as it completes proof-of-
concept trials, conducts outcome-based clinical studies and
increases sales and marketing efforts to commercialize the
WavSTAT4 Systems in Europe. If the Company does not receive
sufficient funding, there is substantial doubt that the Company
will be able to continue as a going concern.

The Company said it may incur unknown expenses or may not be able
to meet its revenue forecast, and one or more of these
circumstances would require the Company to seek additional
capital. The Company may not be able to obtain equity capital or
debt funding on terms that are acceptable. Even if the Company
receives additional funding, such proceeds may not be sufficient
to allow the Company to sustain operations until it becomes
profitable and begins to generate positive cash flows from
operations.

As of June 30, 2014, the Company had a working capital deficit of
$7,225,921 and cash of $443,788, compared to a working capital
deficit of $4,080,488 and cash of $236,597 as of December 31,
2013. In December 2011, the Company entered into an Engagement
Agreement with Laidlaw & Company (UK) Ltd., which Engagement
Agreement was amended in July 2012.

Under the Engagement Agreement, Laidlaw agreed to assist the
Company in raising up to $20.0 million in capital over a two year
period from the date of the Engagement Agreement. Subsequent to
June 30, 2013, the Company has engaged other agents to assist the
Company with raising capital and has commenced raising capital on
its own.

During the six months ended June 30, 2014, the Company raised
$1,376,376, net of transaction costs of $130,000, under these
agreements. However, if the Company does not receive additional
funds in a timely manner, the Company could be in jeopardy as a
going concern.

The Company warned it may not be able to find alternative capital
or raise capital or debt on terms that are acceptable.

Management believes that if the events defined in the Engagement
Agreements occur as expected, or if the Company is otherwise able
to raise a similar level of funds, such proceeds will be
sufficient to allow the Company to sustain operations until it
attains profitability and positive cash flows from operations.
However, the Company may incur unknown expenses or may not be able
to meet its revenue expectations requiring it to seek additional
capital. In such event, the Company may not be able to find
capital or raise capital or debt on terms that are acceptable.

The holders of Convertible Debentures control the conversion of
the Convertible Debentures and certain of the Convertible
Debentures were not converted at their maturity constituting a
potential default on the matured, but unconverted, Convertible
Debentures. In the event of such default, principal, accrued
interest and other related costs are immediately due and payable
in cash.

As of June 30, 2014, Convertible Debentures with a face value of
$1,334,738 held by 33 individual investors are in default. None of
these investors have served notice of default on the Convertible
Debentures held by them.

As reported in the TCR on April 25, 2013, McGladrey LLP, in Des
Moines, Iowa, in its report on the Company's financial statements
for the year ended Dec. 31, 2012, said the Company has suffered
recurring losses from operations and its ability to continue as a
going concern is dependent on the Company's ability to attract
investors and generate cash through issuance of equity instruments
and convertible debt.  "This raises substantial doubt about the
Company's ability to continue as a going concern."

On Feb. 3, 2014, SpectraScience dismissed McGladrey as the
Company's independent registered accounting firm effective
immediately, and engaged HJ Associates & Consultants, LLP, as
replacement accounting firm.


ST. MARY'S HOSPITAL: Moody's Affirms 'Ba2' Rating on $21MM Bonds
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has affirmed Saint Mary's Hospital's
(SMH) Ba2 bond rating. This action affects approximately $21
million of Series E bonds outstanding issued by the Connecticut
Health & Educational Facility Authority. The rating outlook
remains stable. Moody's analysis reflects the financial
performance of Saint Mary's Health System, Inc. (SMHS). SMH
represents approximately 99% of SMHS total assets and operating
revenues.

Summary Rating Rationale

The affirmation of the Ba2 rating with a stable rating outlook
reflects SMHS's maintenance of improved operating results in
recent years and continued strong debt coverage ratios for a Ba
rated credit. Moody's note that SMHS continues to operate in a
challenged service area with local competition, the system has
significant comprehensive debt exposure via operating leases and a
frozen underfunded defined benefit pension plan, and must contend
with Medicaid disproportionate share (DSH) funding cuts in the
state.

Strengths

* SMHS has demonstrated improved and good operating results in
recent years for a Ba rated credit (7.9% operating cash flow
margin through nine-months FY 2014).

* SMHS's Moody's adjusted debt coverage ratios are strong for a Ba
rated credit with debt-to-cash flow under 1.0 times and cash-to-
direct debt over 200%.

* Conservative balance sheet management with all debt in fixed
rate mode and essentially all unrestricted cash and investments in
cash and fixed income securities.

Challenges

* While SMHS's operating margins improved recently, the system has
a track record of variable operating results.

* SMHS is facing significant top-line revenue pressure,
particularly from state Medicaid DSH funding cuts and ongoing
Medicare reimbursement pressure.

* SMHS has significant comprehensive debt equivalents in the form
of operating leases and an underfunded frozen defined benefit
church pension plan. SMHS's cash-to-comprehensive debt measured
45% at FYE 2013, compared to the Baa3 median of 62%.

* SMHS's local service area has relatively weak demographics with
Medicaid representing a high 24% of gross revenues in FY 2013.

Outlook

The stable rating outlook reflects Moody's expectation that SMHS
will sustain adequate operating margins for a Ba rated credit
despite facing stiff headwinds such as the state Medicaid DSH
cuts. Moody's also expect SMHS to maintain strong debt coverage
ratios and improve liquidity.

What Could Change The Rating UP

An upgrade may be warranted if SMHS continues to sustain recent
materially improved operating margins and improved liquidity.
Maintenance of strong debt coverage ratios would be a factor as
well.

What Could Change The Rating DOWN

A downgrade may be considered if SMHS experiences a material
deterioration in operating margins or weaker liquidity ratios. Any
sizeable debt increase would be considered as well.

Principal Methodology

The principal methodology used in this rating was Not-for-Profit
Healthcare Rating Methodology published in March 2012.


STOCKTON, CA: Amends Bankruptcy Plan
------------------------------------
Robin Respaut, writing for Reuters, reported that the bankrupt
city of Stockton, California, has submitted a revised plan to exit
Chapter 9 that reflects the judge's ruling over the value of a
holdout creditor's collateral, but a larger question still looms
over whether public pensions will be cut.  According to Reuters,
Stockton promised it would pay a secured claim of $4 million.

Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that the amended plan provided the court with a "more
focused analysis" on the question of whether the California Public
Employees' Retirement System has the equivalent of a $1.6 billion
lien justifying payment in full.  According to Mr. Rochelle, the
city said in court papers that if it intends on retaining key
employees, particularly those essential to public health and
safety, its only option is to pay pensions in full, but it has
decided not to "play chicken" with its workforce, citing evidence
showing that its employees have job options outside of Stockton
and would be incentivized to leave quickly to maximize their
future pension benefits.  Whether the city can legally impair
pensions, however, is a "purely academic question," according to
Stockton, Mr. Rochelle said.

                      About Stockton, Calif.

The City of Stockton, California, filed a Chapter 9 petition
(Bankr. E.D. Cal. Case No. 12-32118) in Sacramento on June 28,
2012, becoming the largest city to seek creditor protection in
U.S. history.  The city was forced to file for bankruptcy after
talks with bondholders and labor unions failed.  Stockton
estimated more than $1 billion in assets and in excess of
$500 million in liabilities.

The city, with a population of about 300,000, identified the
California Public Employees Retirement System as the largest
unsecured creditor with a claim of $147.5 million for unfunded
pension costs.  In second place is Wells Fargo Bank NA as trustee
for $124.3 million in pension obligation bonds.  The list of
largest creditors includes $119.2 million owing on four other
series of bonds.

The city is being represented by Marc A. Levinson, Esq., and John
W. Killeen, Esq., at Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP.  The
petition was signed by Robert Deis, city manager.

Mr. Levinson also represented the city of Vallejo, Cal. in its
2008 bankruptcy.  Vallejo filed for protection under Chapter 9
(Bankr. E.D. Cal. Case No. 08-26813) on May 23, 2008, estimating
$500 million to $1 billion in assets and $100 million to $500
million in debts in its petition.  In August 2011, Vallejo was
given green light to exit the municipal reorganization.   The
Vallejo Chapter 9 plan restructures $50 million of publicly held
debt secured by leases on public buildings.  Although the Plan
doesn't affect pensions, it adjusts the claims and benefits of
current and former city employees.  Bankruptcy Judge Michael
McManus released Vallejo from bankruptcy on Nov. 1, 2011.

The bankruptcy judge on April 1, 2013, ruled that the city of
Stockton is eligible for municipal bankruptcy in Chapter 9.

-----------------------------------------------------------------
TechPrecision Corporation notified the U.S. Securities and
Exchange Commission that its report on Form 10-Q for the quarter
ended June 30, 2014, could not be filed within the prescribed time
period because the Company requires additional time to complete

of $7.1 million.  The previously disclosed trend of lower margins

Marcum LLP, in Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvania, issued a "going concern"
qualification on the consolidated financial statements for the
year ended March 31, 2014.  The independent auditors noted that
the Company was not in compliance with the leverage ratio covenant
under their credit facility, and the Bank has not agreed to waive
the non-compliance with the covenant.  Since the Company is in
default, the Bank has the right to accelerate payment of the debt
in full upon 60 days written notice.  The auditors added that the
Company has suffered recurring losses from operations, and the
Company's liquidity may not be sufficient to meet its debt service
requirements as they come due over the next twelve months.  These
circumstances raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability
to continue as a going concern.

proposed settlement, Barclays would pay the trustee $23 million
for the benefit of Thornburg's creditors.  The Journal recalled
that Joel I. Sher, the bankruptcy trustee overseeing Thornburg's

British bank Barclays PLC, for $94 million over the margin calls
and subsequent seizure and sale of the mortgage-backed securities

THELEN LLP: Unfinished-Business Suit Finished Off by 2nd Circuit
----------------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan upheld
the dismissal of a lawsuit brought against Seyfath Shaw LLP by the
trustee for the defunct firm Thelen LLP.

According to the report, the Circuit Court upheld the dismissal of
the lawsuit following the state high court's July 1 opinion saying
there's no property in hourly unfinished business because it's
"too contingent in nature and speculative to create a present or
future property interest."

The Thelen opinion in federal court is Geron v. Seyfarth Shaw LLP
(In re Thelen LLP), 12-4138, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second
Circuit (Manhattan).

                        About Thelen LLP

Thelen LLP, formerly known as Thelen Reid Brown Raysman & Steiner
-- http://thelen.com/-- is a bi-coastal American law firm in
process of dissolution.  It was formed as a product between two
mergers between California and New York-based law firms, mostly
recently in 2006.  Its headcount peaked at roughly 600 attorneys
in 2006, and had 500 early in 2008, with offices in eight cities
in the United States, England and China.

In October 2008, Thelen's remaining partners voted to dissolve the
firm.  As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on Sept. 22,
2009, Thelen LLP filed for Chapter 7 protection.  The filing was
expected due to the timing of a writ of attachment filed by one of
Thelen's landlords, entitling the landlord to $25 million of the
Company's assets.  The landlord won approval for that writ in June
2009, but Thelen could void the writ by filing for bankruptcy
within 90 days of that court ruling.  Thelen, according to AM Law
Daily, has repaid most of its debt to its lending banks.

ULTRA PETROLEUM: S&P Affirms 'BB' CCR on Acquisition
----------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services affirmed its 'BB' corporate
credit rating with a stable outlook on Houston, Tex.-based Ultra
Petroleum Corp., following the announcement of its proposed asset
exchange and cash payment to SWEPI L.P., an affiliate of Royal
Dutch Shell plc.

At the same time, S&P affirmed its 'BB' issue-level rating on the
company's existing unsecured debt held at the parent company.  The
recovery rating on this debt is a '3', reflecting S&P's
expectation of meaningful (50% to 70%) recovery in the event of a
payment default.

S&P is affirming the ratings on Ultra Petroleum following its
announcement that it will acquire 2,100 billion cubic feet
equivalent (bcfe) of proved natural gas reserves in the Pinedale
field (Wyoming) from an affiliate of Royal Dutch Shell in exchange
for 232 bcfe of proved natural gas reserves in the Marcellus shale
(northern Pennsylvania) and $925 million in cash.

"In our view, despite reducing geographic diversification, the
acquisition improves the company's business risk profile by
meaningfully increasing its overall proved reserve base and
improving profitability, given currently narrower gas price
differentials in Wyoming relative to northern Pennsylvania," said
Standard & Poor's credit analyst Carin Dehne-Kiley.

Based on current natural gas prices and well costs, the company
estimates returns of more than 50% in the Pinedale and essentially
0% in this area of the Marcellus.  Ultra has increased its capital
spending plans for the next several years which, along with the
incremental debt to fund the acquisition, pushes out the expected
improvement in credit measures until late 2015.

Incorporating the acquisition and organic growth year-to-date, S&P
is raising its assessment of Ultra's business risk profile to
"satisfactory" from "fair."  S&P assess Ultra's financial risk
profile as "aggressive."  S&P assess Ultra's liquidity as
"adequate," given that it expects liquidity sources to exceed uses
by at least 1.2x over the next 12 to 24 months.  S&P expects
sources would exceed uses even if our projected EBITDA declined by
15%.

S&P's stable outlook reflects its expectation that Ultra Petroleum
will reduce leverage to levels more appropriate for the rating
over the next 12 months.

S&P could consider a downgrade if it expected FFO to debt to
remain below 20% for a sustained period, which would most likely
occur if Henry Hub natural gas prices fellow below $3.50/mmBTU and
Ultra did not rein in capital spending.

S&P could consider an upgrade if Ultra were able to significantly
improve leverage, such that FFO to debt remained above 45% for a
sustained period.

WPCS INTERNATIONAL: Shareholders OK Sale of Seattle Operations
--------------------------------------------------------------
WPCS International Incorporated disclosed with the U.S. Securities
and Exchange Commission that on Aug. 15, 2014, the Company
reconvened a special meeting of stockholders, at which the
Company's stockholders overwhelmingly approved the sale of
substantially all of the assets of its wholly-owned subsidiary
WPCS International - Seattle, Inc.  Over 94% of the total shares
voted by the majority of shareholders in this special meeting were
in favor of this transaction.

The agreement proposes that EC Company, an Oregon-based electrical
contracting company, will purchase substantially all of the assets
and assume certain liabilities the of Seattle Operations, in an
all-cash transaction, at a target sales price of approximately
$2.7 million, subject to certain adjustments based upon the
closing date balance sheet of the Seattle Operations.  The Company
expects that this transaction will close on or around Aug. 31,
2014, and that it will generate over $1.5 million in working
capital.

According to Sebastian Giordano, interim CEO of WPCS, "On behalf
of the Board of Directors and entire management team, we want to
thank our shareholders for demonstrating their support, evidenced
by their voting in favor of the sale of our Seattle Operations.
This is yet another critical milestone in our overall
restructuring plan, and it will provide the Company with, amongst
other benefits, some much needed working capital."

                            About WPCS

WPCS International Incorporated -- http://www.wpcs.com-- operates
in two business segments including: (1) providing communications
infrastructure contracting services to the public services,
healthcare, energy and corporate enterprise markets worldwide; and
(2) developing a Bitcoin trading platform.

As reported by the TCR on Feb. 7, 2014, WPCS appointed Marcum LLP
as its new independent registered public accounting firm.
CohnReznick LLP resigned on Dec. 20, 2013.

The Company's former auditors, CohnReznick LLP, in Roseland, New
Jersey, expressed substantial doubt about WPCS International's
ability to continue as a going concern following the annual report
for the year ended April 30, 2013.  The independent auditors noted
that the Company has incurred net losses and negative cash flows
from operating activities, had a working capital deficiency as of
and for the years ended April 30, 2013, and 2012, and has an
accumulated deficit as of April 30, 2013.

As of Jan. 31, 2014, the Company had $22.37 million in total
assets, $15.18 million in total liabilities and $7.19 million in
total equity.

"At January 31, 2014, the Company has losses from operations, and
has outstanding balances due to its former surety under a
forbearance agreement of $1,533,757.  These factors raise
substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a
going concern.  The financial statements do not include any
adjustments to the carrying amount and classification of recorded
assets and liabilities should the Company be unable to continue
operations.  Management's plans are to continue to raise
additional funds through the sales of debt or equity securities.
There is no assurance that additional financing will be available
when needed or that management will be able to obtain financing on
terms acceptable to the Company and whether the Company will
become profitable and generate positive operating cash flow.  If
the Company is unable to raise sufficient additional funds, it
will have to develop and implement a plan to further extend
payables and reduce overhead until sufficient additional capital
is raised to support further operations.  There can be no
assurance that such a plan will be successful," the Company stated
in its quarterly report for the period ended Jan. 31, 2014.


YMCA OF MILWAUKEE: Judge Sends Facilities to Sept. 29 Auction
-------------------------------------------------------------
Jacqueline Palank, writing for DBR Small Cap, reported that a
bankruptcy judge said the YMCA of Metropolitan Milwaukee can put
four of its fitness facilities on the auction block next month,
with leading bids totaling $9 million.  According to the report,
Judge Susan V. Kelley of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Milwaukee
authorized the nonprofit to hold a Sept. 29 auction for four of
its 10 fitness centers, court papers show.  She also agreed to
review the winning bids at a Sept. 30 sale hearing, the report
related.

                      About YMCA of Milwaukee

* No Unconstitutional Taking from Larger Homestead Exemption
------------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that the U.S. Court of Appeals in Manhattan ruled that a
bankrupt is entitled to utilize the state's enlarged homestead
exemption to void a judgment lien created before the
law was amended.  According to the report, U.S. Circuit Judge
Richard C. Wesley ruled that using the larger exemption wasn't a
taking of property prohibited by the Takings Clause in the Fifth
Amendment, made applicable to the states by the Fourteenth
Amendment.
The case is 1256 Hertel Ave. Associates LLC v. Calloway, 12-1603,
U.S. Second Circuit Court of Appeals (Manhattan).


* CFPB Takes Action Against Amerisave Mortgage
----------------------------------------------
Brena Swanson, writing for Housing Wire, reported that the
Consumer Financial Protection Bureau took action against Amerisave
Mortgage and ordered it to pay $19.3 million for deceiving tens of
thousands of mortgage customers with a bait-and-switch loan
scheme.  According to the report, the charges were against
Amerisave, its affiliate, Novo Appraisal Management Company, and
the owner of both companies, Patrick Markert.


* Banks Push to Delay Rule on Investments
-----------------------------------------
Andrew Ackerman and Ryan Tracy, writing for The Wall Street
Journal, reported that banks are pressing U.S. policy makers for a
multiyear delay of a rule requiring them to sell investments in
private-equity and venture-capital funds, the latest industry push
to scale back a central provision of the 2010 Dodd-Frank law.
According to the report, citing people familiar with the effort,
bank officials, trade groups and lawmakers are quietly lobbying
the Federal Reserve to grant a reprieve of up to seven years from
a provision that limits banks' investments in private-equity and
venture-capital funds.


* Boston Fed Chief Warns of Dangers to Repo Market
--------------------------------------------------
Peter Eavis, writing for The New York Times' DealBook, reported
that Eric S. Rosengren, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of
Boston, recently called for a more ambitious overhaul of the repo
market, particularly suggesting that financial institutions making
large use of repo borrowing should maintain higher levels of
capital.


* SEC Launches Examination of Alternative Mutual Funds
------------------------------------------------------
Juliet Chung and Kirsten Grind, writing for The Wall Street
Journal, reported that the Securities and Exchange Commission has
launched a broad examination of alternative mutual funds,
according to people familiar with the matter, kicking off
regulatory scrutiny of one of the hottest and most controversial
investment products to be offered to small investors.  According
to the report, the so-called funds "sweep" includes examinations
of large investment firms such as BlackRock Inc. and AQR Capital
Management LLC but also smaller firms that previously didn't offer
mutual funds, according to some of the people.


* S&P Accuses U.S. of Withholding Documents in Fraud Suit
---------------------------------------------------------
Sophia Pearson, writing for Bloomberg News, reported that the U.S.
is withholding documents that might show the government sued
Standard & Poor's for $5 billion in retaliation for downgrading
the country's debt, the ratings company said, asking a court to
compel the records' production.  According to the report, a
federal judge in April ruled that S&P could seek potential
evidence from the Justice Department to mount a retaliation
defense to U.S. claims that it gave fraudulent ratings to
mortgage-backed securities.  Since then the government has turned
over documents with redactions ranging from the omission of a
single word on a page to multiple pages, the report cited S&P as
saying in court papers.

The case is U.S. v. McGraw-Hill Cos. (MHFI), 13-cv-00779, U.S.
District Court, Central District of California (Santa Ana).


* Argentina Proposes End Run Around U.S. Court in Bond Dispute
--------------------------------------------------------------
Alexandra Stevenson and Jonathan Gilbert, writing for The New York
Times' DealBook, reported that Argentina has proposed a way to pay
its bondholders in a move that would bypass a United States court
ruling that has blocked its payments and sent the country
spiraling into default last month.  According to the report, the
Argentine government said that it had sent a draft bill to
Congress that would allow foreign investors holding Argentine debt
to swap their defaulted bonds for new ones subject to local law.


* Argentina: Cheapest Bonds Are Most Resilient in Default
---------------------------------------------------------
Camila Russo, writing for Bloomberg News, reported that
Argentina's lowest-priced bonds are holding up the best following
the country's default last month.  According to the report,
Argentina's notes maturing in 2038, known as Par bonds, have lost
6.5 percent to 52.88 cents on the dollar since the government was
blocked from making a payment on its debt last month, compared to
a 11.6 percent plunge on its notes due in 2033 and an 8.3 percent
rout on securities that mature in 2017.


* Argentina: Aurelius Pans Settlement Chances in Debt Crisis
------------------------------------------------------------
Law360 reported that Aurelius Capital Management LP threw cold
water on speculation that the private sector might find a solution
to its sovereign-debt dispute with Argentina, reporting that it
had not received any "remotely acceptable" proposals to buy up its
defaulted bonds.  According to the report, the Manhattan-based
hedge fund said that recent engagements with unnamed private-
sector financiers about curing the default have convinced it there
is "no realistic prospect of a private solution."

Along with Elliott Management Corp. unit NML Capital Ltd.,
Aurelius affiliates hold about $1.5 billion in bonds they
purchased on the cheap following Argentina's 2001 default and
refused to swap out for 30 cents on the dollar in restructurings
in 2005 and 2010, instead suing in New York for full repayment,
the report related.

Law360 also reported that a federal magistrate judge granted NML
Capital Ltd.'s request to wrest information from numerous
companies that the hedge fund says are hiding $65 million
embezzled from Argentina's coffers, ruling against 123 Nevada
entities the judge described as shell companies.  According to the
report, U.S. Magistrate Judge Cam Ferenbach said the companies
must hand over information on their finances, or provide a
deponent, so that NML can try to find out the location of money
that was allegedly embezzled by current Argentine President
Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, her husband, among others.


* AlixPartners Bags "Turnaround of the Year-Mega Company" Award
---------------------------------------------------------------
AlixPartners, the global business advisory firm, has been honored
by the Turnaround Management Association (TMA), receiving the
international non-profit's "Turnaround of the Year-Mega Company"
award for its work on behalf of Eastman Kodak Co.  The
AlixPartners team was led by James A. Mesterharm, managing
director at AlixPartners and co-head of the firm's Turnaround &
Restructuring Services group in North America, who served as chief
restructuring officer at Kodak, and Becky Roof, managing director
in AlixPartners' Turnaround & Restructuring Services group, who
served as Kodak's chief financial officer.

AlixPartners worked in tandem with company management and advisers
from Sullivan & Cromwell LLP and Lazard FrŠres & Co. Inc. on a
consensual resolution that restructured Kodak's businesses,
transforming the company into a business-to-business firm focused
on commercial, packaging and functional printing, while also
engineering an unprecedented, win-win spin-off of Kodak's consumer
and document-imaging businesses to the company's U.K. pension
fund, creating a new company called Kodak Alaris Holdings Ltd.

Said Mesterharm: "When AlixPartners was first engaged by Kodak, we
hoped that the sale of the company's landmark patents would be
enough to pay the company's debts in full.  But when bids for the
portfolio came in lower than anticipated, the management team,
with guidance from AlixPartners and Lazard, had to revert to 'Plan
B,' which was a total restructuring of the company.  The results,
however, have been remarkable: a Kodak today that is focused,
technology-driven and driving growth in revenue and profitability.
The restructuring provided the company with the opportunity to
pursue game-changing technologies in new and developing markets.
On behalf of everyone at AlixPartners who worked on the Kodak
engagement, I'd like to thank the TMA for recognizing our
contributions to this success story."

Said Roof: "Working hand in hand with management and other
advisors, we were able to shed approximately $3 billion in legacy
liabilities and improve operational EBITDA by over $300 million
from 2012 to 2013.  By working closely with the U.K. pension fund
and their advisors to spin-off Kodak Alaris, we were also able to
help preserve thousands of jobs and help save an iconic company,
something we're all very proud of and happy about."

The award to AlixPartners will be presented at the TMA Annual
Conference, held Sept. 29 to Oct. 1 at the Westin Harbour Castle
in Toronto.

Case Study

During the 20th century, Kodak had been one of the most-recognized
names in the business world.  At its peak the company employed
144,000, but by year-end 2011, after years of decline in its core
film business, Kodak was already a much smaller company, with
17,000 employees, annual sales of $6 billion, $4.7 billion in
assets and over $7 billion in liabilities. For years, Kodak had
faced a secular decline in its film business, brought on initially
by the rise in digital cameras and exacerbated by the
proliferation of digital-image technology employed in mobile
phones and tablets.  The company's own expansion into digital
technologies required significant investment to reach scale and
profitability.

At the time of its Chapter 11 filing, on Jan. 19, 2012, Kodak's
business encompassed a broad portfolio of consumer and commercial
products and services, and considerable intellectual-property
assets.  The bottom-line objective was to enable Kodak to make
significant progress toward becoming a sustainable, profitable
business, and to secure the support of creditors for its plan of
reorganization and eventual emergence from bankruptcy.  Kodak was
able to successfully obtain $950 million of initial debtor-in-
possession financing upon its filing, and exited or divested
money-losing and non-core businesses and assets in rapid
succession.

AlixPartners, working closely with Kodak's senior management team,
also undertook extensive operational-restructuring and
profitability-enhancement work, resulting in an annual EBITDA
improvement of over $300 million, including renegotiation of
customer contracts, the rejection or renegotiation of a large
number of unprofitable vendor contracts and leases, the wind-down
of unprofitable and non-core businesses, significant consolidation
of remaining business lines, and the streamlining of corporate and
R &D functions.

The team was also able to reach a consensual settlement agreement
with the committee of U.S. retirees in Oct. 2012 to permanently
eliminate $1.2 billion in OPEB liabilities, which had hampered the
company with annual cash costs of $110 million.  Kodak's digital-
imaging patent portfolio was sold in a highly-structured
transaction to buyers for $527 million.  The company also raised
$406 million through an oversubscribed rights offering and
obtained an $895 million exit facility to facilitate its emergence
from Chapter 11.

In addition, the team was able to negotiate a win-win settlement
with the Kodak U.K. Pension Plan (KPP) in April 2013, resulting in
a spin-off of Kodak's consumer businesses to the KPP in exchange
for the release of all of the company's worldwide obligations to
the KPP (including the waiver of its $2.8 billion bankruptcy
claim) and a $325 million cash payment from the KPP to Kodak.

In the end, the transaction created extraordinary value.  It
repositioned Kodak, kept the KPP solvent and created two well-
positioned businesses: a reorganized Kodak, owned by U.S.
creditors, and Kodak Alaris, owned by the KPP.  It stands as one
of the most innovative, unusual and successful deals ever
consummated in the history of cross-border restructurings.

On Sept. 3, 2013, the reorganized Kodak emerged from bankruptcy.
The company subsequently relisted on the New York Stock Exchange
on Nov. 1, 2013.

                             *********

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.
