ABACO ENERGY: Moody's Rates $175-Mil. Sr. Secured Loan 'B3'
-----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned first time ratings to Abaco
Energy Technologies LLC, including a B3 Corporate Family Rating
(CFR) and a B3 rating to its proposed $175 million senior secured
term loan. At the same time, Moody's assigned a SGL-2 Speculative
Grade Liquidity Rating and a stable rating outlook. The proceeds
of the term loan will be used to partially fund Abaco's $360
million acquisition of Basin Tools, Inc. Abaco is a portfolio
company owned by private equity firm Riverstone Holdings, LLC.
Abaco presently has no assets or operations. The ratings are
subject to a review of the final credit agreements.

"The B3 rating for Abaco reflects the risks of Basin's niche
market position and single product line in competition with some
of the industry's dominant providers of oilfield products and
services," commented Pete Speer, Moody's Senior Vice President.
"The rating is supported by Basin's rising reputation as a
reliable supplier with a strong customer service focus and
Riverstone's significant equity funding of the acquisition."

Assignments:

Probability of Default Rating, Assigned Caa1-PD

Corporate Family Rating, Assigned B3

Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating, Assigned SGL-2

Senior Secured Bank Credit Facilities (Local Currency), Assigned
B3(LGD3)

Outlook Actions:

Outlook, Assigned Stable

Ratings Rationale

Abaco's B3 Corporate Family Rating (CFR) reflects the company's
relatively small size and single product line with exposure to the
highly cyclical onshore drilling activity in the US through its
acquisition of Basin. That company and its operating subsidiaries
manufacture and service specific downhole tools in competition
with National Oilwell Varco (A2 stable) and a division of
Schlumberger Ltd. (Aa3 stable), which are much larger and more
diversified companies with far greater financial resources. The
rating is supported by Basin's demonstrated ability to provide a
quality product at meaningfully shorter turnaround times,
providing the company with a growing niche market position as a
viable alternative to the market leaders. The rating also benefits
from reasonable initial financial leverage following the
acquisition. Riverstone, a seasoned energy investor, is funding
the acquisition with a little over 50% of cash equity.

The B3 ratings on the proposed term loan and revolving credit
facility reflect both the overall probability of default of Abaco,
to which Moody's assigned a PDR of Caa1-PD, and a loss given
default of LGD 3. The senior secured credit facility is comprised
of a $25 million five-year revolving credit facility and $175
million seven-year term loan that will be secured by a pari passu
first lien claim on all of Abaco's tangible and intangible assets.
Since all the debt in the capital structure has the same priority
claim to the assets, the term loan and revolver are rated the same
as the CFR. Furthermore, because the entire capital structure
includes only bank debt, a 65% recovery rate was used in
determining the LGD estimates under Moody's Loss Given Default
Methodology.

Moody's expects Abaco to have good liquidity following the
acquisition, as indicated by the SGL-2 rating. The company should
generate free cash flow given its strong margins and limited
capital reinvestment and working capital requirements. Abaco will
have an undrawn $25 million revolving credit facility to provide
liquidity for working capital fluctuations and earnings
cyclicality. The cash balance after the acquisition will be
minimal but Moody's expects that to grow from free cash flow
through 2015. Financial covenants have not been finalized, but
Moody's expects the covenants to include a limitation on leverage
(Debt/EBITDA) that steps down over time, consistent with the
company's forecasts but with sufficient headroom for future
compliance. Substantially all of Abaco's assets are secured, so
the company has little alternative sources of liquidity.

The $175 million term loan results in Abaco having Debt/EBITDA
around 4x expected 2014 EBITDA. The stable rating outlook reflects
Moody's expectation that management will maintain Abaco's good
liquidity and steadily reduce debt and financial leverage through
free cash flow. The ratings could be downgraded if the company's
cash flows significantly decline because of a cyclical downturn in
drilling activity or deterioration in market share. A leveraging
acquisition could also pressure the ratings. Debt/EBITDA sustained
above 5x or a significant deterioration in liquidity could result
in a ratings downgrade. A positive rating action is unlikely
absent a substantial increase in Abaco's scale and product line
diversification without increasing financial leverage. EBITDA
above $100 million with Debt / EBITDA at or below 4x could result
in a ratings upgrade.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Global
Oilfield Services Rating Methodology published in December 2009.
Other methodologies used include Loss Given Default for
Speculative-Grade Non-Financial Companies in the U.S., Canada and
EMEA published in June 2009.

Abaco Energy Technologies LLC is majority owned and controlled by
Riverstone Holdings LLC. The company will be an oilfield products
manufacturer and provide related services following its
acquisition of Basin Tools, Inc.


ALLIED IRISH: Comprehensive Assessment 2014 Results
---------------------------------------------------
Allied Irish Banks, p.l.c., noted the publication of results of
the CA European wide stress testing exercise conducted by the
European Banking Authority and the European Central Bank in
conjunction with AIB's National Competent Authority, the Central
Bank of Ireland.

Under the CA, the capital adequacy threshold for the baseline
stress test scenario was set at 8.0% Common Equity Tier 1 (CET 1)
and set at 5.5% CET 1 in the adverse stress test scenario.  Both
scenarios were assessed for capital under the transitional
arrangements as set out in Capital Requirements Directive (CRD)
IV, over a 3 year period from 2014 - 2016.

Economic conditions in Ireland and the UK have continued to
improve in 2014.  AIB's transitional CET 1 ratio, including the
benefit of unaudited profits generated in H1 2014, increased to
16.1% as of 30 June 2014 and the bank has continued to generate
capital in quarter 3 2014.

The results published by the ECB and EBA are point in time
projections based on prescribed assumptions and should not be
treated as indicative of future financial performance of AIB.  To
view the results including disclosure templates published by the
ECB and EBA for AIB please go to investorrelations.aib.ie

AIB currently has 523,438,445,437 ordinary shares in issue, of
which 99.8% are held by the National Pensions Reserve Fund
Commission, with 500 billion of the ordinary shares issued to the
NPRFC in July 2011 at a price of EUR0.01 per share.  Based on the
number of shares currently in issue and the closing share price of
24 October 2014, AIB trades on a valuation multiple of c. 8x
(excluding 2009 Preference Shares) 30 June 2014 Net Asset Value
(NAV).  The Group continues to note that the median for comparable
European banks is c.1x NAV.

                      About Allied Irish Banks

Allied Irish Banks, p.l.c. -- http://www.aibgroup.com/-- is a
major commercial bank based in Ireland.  It has an extensive
branch network across the country, a head office in Dublin and a
capital markets operation based in the International Financial
Services Centre in Dublin.  AIB also has retail and corporate
businesses in the UK, offices in Europe and a subsidiary company
in the Isle of Man and Jersey (Channel Islands).

Since the onset of the global and Irish financial crisis, AIB's
relationship with the Irish Government has changed significantly.

As at Dec. 31, 2010, the Government, through the National Pension
Reserve Fund Commission ("NPRFC"), held 49.9% of the ordinary
shares of the Company (the share of the voting rights at
shareholders' general meetings), 10,489,899,564 convertible non-
voting ("CNV") shares and 3.5 billion 2009 Preference Shares.  On
April 8, 2011, the NPRFC converted the total outstanding amount of
CNV shares into 10,489,899,564 ordinary shares of AIB, thereby
increasing its holding to 92.8% of the ordinary share capital.

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

Allied Irish Banks reported a loss of EUR1.59 billion in 2013, a
loss of EUR3.55 billion in 2012 and a net loss of $2.32 billion in
2011.

At Dec. 31, 2013, the Company had EUR117.73 billion in total
assets, EUR107.24 billion in total liabilities and EUR10.49
billion in total shareholders' equity.

ARCHDIOCESE OF MILWAUKEE: Judge Asked to Stay Court Proceedings
---------------------------------------------------------------
A group of victims of clergy sex abuse is asking a bankruptcy
judge to hold off on all court proceedings related to the
Archdiocese of Milwaukee's bid to have its claims dismissed.

In its motion, the group represented by Minnesota-based Jeff
Anderson & Associates, P.A. asked U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Susan
Kelley to stay court proceedings until after the hearing on the
archdiocese's bankruptcy plan.

The archdiocese filed motions for summary judgment earlier this
month challenging 11 claims asserted by the sex abuse victims,
which their lawyer says, would only further deplete the
archdiocese's resources.

"Litigating the summary judgment motions will needlessly deplete
the archdiocese's estate, thereby reducing what little amount of
money is available to abuse survivors while simultaneously wasting
judicial resources," said Michael Finnegan, Esq., at Jeff Anderson
& Associates P.A., in St. Paul, Minnesota.

                  About Archdiocese of Milwaukee

The Diocese of Milwaukee was established on Nov. 28, 1843, and was
elevated to an Archdiocese on Feb. 12, 1875, by Pope Pius IX.  The
region served by the Archdiocese consists of 4,758 square miles in
southeast Wisconsin which includes counties Dodge, Fond du Lac,
Kenosha, Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Racine, Sheboygan, Walworth,
Washington and Waukesha.  There are 657,519 registered Catholics
in the Region.

The Catholic Archdiocese of Milwaukee, in Wisconsin, filed for
Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection (Bankr. E.D. Wis. Case No. 11-
20059) on Jan. 4, 2011, to address claims over sexual abuse by
priests on minors.

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

Daryl L. Diesing, Esq., at Whyte Hirschboeck Dudek S.C., in
Milwaukee, Wisconsin, serves as the Archdiocese's counsel.  The
Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors in the bankruptcy case
has retained Pachulski Stang Ziehl & Jones LLP as its counsel, and
Howard, Solochek & Weber, S.C., as its local counsel.

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


AMCAD HOLDINGS: Lorain Mulls Lawsuit Over Court Software Problems
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Evan Goodenow at Chronicle.northcoastnow.com reports that the city
of Lorain is considering filing a lawsuit against American
Cadastre, L.L.C., over the May 9 Lorain Municipal Court computer
crash and the court's software problems, causing the loss of about
90,000 records.

Lorain's annual audit released by the Ohio Auditor's Office showed
that the court has been unable to reconcile its books to its bank
accounts from October 2013 to December 2013, and it hasn't
distributed some revenues to certain jurisdictions, which could
lead to "potential misstatements to accounts,"
Chronicle.northcoastnow.com relates.

The Ohio Supreme Court recommended hiring American Cadastre, but
hasn't provided any assistance since the crash,
Chronicle.northcoastnow.com says, citing Court Clerk Lori
Maiorana.

Barnett Wright at Al.com reported on Sept. 26, 2014, that Judge
Alan King said American Cadastre -- responsible for key functions
in Jefferson County's probate court, and land records and judicial
software systems for a range of entities in Alabama -- filed for
bankruptcy, leaving at risk the county's documenting of land and
public records and judicial cases in court.

Herndon, Virginia-based software vendor AmCad Holdings, LLC
(Bankr. D. Del. Case No. 14-12168) and American Cadastre, L.L.C. -
- dba AMCAD LLC and Amcad Digital Conversion, LLC -- (Bankr. D.
Del. Case No. 14-12169) filed separate Chapter 11 bankruptcy
petitions on Sept. 19, 2014.

Nicholas J. Brannick, Esq., at Cole, Schotz, Meisel, Forman &
Leonard, P.A., serves as the Debtors' bankruptcy counsel.

SOLIC Capital Advisors, LLC, is the Debtors' financial advisor and
investment banker.  The Debtors' restructuring advisor is
Kallander Group, Inc.  The Debtors' claims/noticing agent is The
Garden City Group.

In its Petition, AmCad Holdings, LLC, estimated its assets at up
to $50,000, and its debts at between $1 million and $10 million.

In its Petition, American Cadastre estimated its  assets at $1
million to $10 million, and its debts at $10 million to $50
million.

The Petitions were signed by Ian L. Blasco, manager.


ASP HHI: S&P Withdraws 'B+' Corp. Credit Rating on Debt Repayment

-- ASP HHI Intermediate Holdings, Metaldyne, and Grede Holdings --
under a single, consolidated issuer structure at MPG.

BANK OF THE CAROLINAS: Board Elects Harvey Glick as Chairman
------------------------------------------------------------
The board of directors of Bank of the Carolinas Corporation and
its wholly owned subsidiary, Bank of the Carolinas, have appointed
Harvey L. Glick as a director and elected him as chairman.  The
board was introduced to Mr. Glick during the course of the
Company's recent $45.8 million capital raise.  Mr. Glick
participated in the capital raise and was instrumental to its
success.

In electing Glick as chairman, the board noted his involvement in
the capital raise, his leadership capabilities, and his broad
experience in the financial services industry.  Glick, 63, was
most recently president and chief executive officer of Insight
Bank, Worthington, Ohio, from 2008 until 2014.  He currently
serves on the board of directors of Insignia Bank, Sarasota,
Florida.  Mr. Glick began his banking career in 1980 at State
Savings Bank, Columbus, Ohio.  He served as chairman and chief
executive officer of Prospect Bank, Columbus, Ohio, until its sale
to Sky Financial Group in 2004.  He then served as executive vice
president of Sky Bank until July 2006.  Mr. Glick also served as
chairman of the board of directors of Century Bank, Columbus,
Ohio, as a member of the board of directors of State Savings Bank
of Arizona, and as a member of the board of directors of Carolina
Financial Corporation, Charleston, South Carolina.  Mr. Glick also
serves on the Banking Commission for the State of Ohio.

Mr. Glick succeeds Dr. Francis W. Slate as chairman.  Dr. Slate
will continue to serve on the board until the Company's annual
meeting of shareholders in December.

"I'm excited to have been appointed to the board of directors and
look forward to working with the nearly 100 talented associates at
Bank of the Carolinas -- a true community bank," Glick said.
"With our new capital in hand and the retirement of our borrowings
I'm very optimistic about the future. With the pending retirement
of Dr. Francis W. Slate, I want to thank him for his leadership
and acknowledge that I have very big shoes to fill."

Stephen R. Talbert, president and chief executive officer of the
Company and the Bank, commented, "We are very excited to have
Harvey Glick join our board of directors.  Harvey has a vast
amount of experience in banking and his knowledge and expertise
will be a tremendous addition to our team.  With his successful
leadership positions at previous banking institutions, we are
confident that his addition to our board will be beneficial in
helping guide Bank of the Carolinas into the future."

The term of the agreement commenced on Feb. 1, 2014, and will end
on a date to be determined by the Bank and GBL.  The Bank paid GBL
$10,000 upon the signing of the agreement and agreed to pay GBL
$10,000 per month during the term of the agreement.  The aggregate
yearly amount due to GBL under the agreement is $120,000.  The
Bank also agreed to reimburse GBL for its out-of-pocket expenses
incurred in connection with the performance of its services under
the agreement.

It is anticipated that five of the current directors of the
Company and the Bank -- Jerry W. Anderson, Alan M. Bailey, John A.
Drye, John W. Googe, and Francis W. Slate, will retire from the
board of directors of the Company and the Bank following the
Company's annual meeting of shareholders.  The Company's annual
meeting of shareholders is currently scheduled for Dec. 4, 2014.

                    About Bank of the Carolinas

Mocksville, North Carolina-based Bank of the Carolinas Corporation
was formed in 2006 to serve as a holding company for Bank of the
Carolinas.  The Bank's primary market area is in the Piedmont
region of North Carolina.

Turlington and Company, LLP, in Lexington, North Carolina, 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 suffered recurring credit
losses that have eroded certain regulatory capital ratios.  As of
Dec. 31, 2013, the Company is considered undercapitalized based on
their regulatory capital level.  This raises substantial doubt
about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern.

The Company reported a net loss available to common stockholders
of $2.33 million in 2013, a net loss available to common
stockholders of $5.53 million in 2012 and a net loss available to
common stockholders of $29.18 million in 2011.

As of June 30, 2014, the Company had $427.82 million in total
assets, $423.04 million in total liabilities and $4.77 million in
total stockholders' equity.


BOART LONGYEAR: Moody's Affirms Caa1 Corporate Family Rating
------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service affirmed Boart Longyear Limited's Caa1
Corporate Family Rating (CFR) and Caa1-PD probability of default
rating. The speculative grade liquidity rating was changed to SGL-
2 from SGL-4. At the same time, Moody's affirmed Boart Longyear
Management Pty Limited's B3 senior secured note rating and Caa2
senior unsecured note rating. The rating outlook was changed to
stable from negative.

2018, Affirmed B3, LGD3

Senior Unsecured Regular Bond/Debenture (Local Currency) Apr 1,
2021, Affirmed Caa2, LGD5

Ratings Rationale

The ratings affirmation reflects the recapitalization being
undertaken, which includes the refinancing of debt and new equity
infusion. Although gross debt will modestly increase, the
recapitalization will significantly enhance Boart's liquidity and
remove the likelihood of covenant defaults under the revolving
credit facility and consequently potential cross defaults to the
senior secured and unsecured notes. In addition, the refinancing
improves the company's debt maturity profile with the earliest
maturity being $300 million in 2018.

Under the plan, affiliates of Centerbridge Partners, L.P.
(Centerbridge -- Boart's largest shareholder with a 19.9% stake
following an initial $6 million equity placement) provided a $120
million senior secured term loan -- Tranche A and will provide up
to a $105 million senior secured term loan-tranche B. The Tranche
A facility was used to repay the revolving credit facility ($38
million outstanding at June 30, 2014) while Tranche B will finance
the tender offer for up to $105 million of the 10% senior secured
notes due 2018. Both tranches will be covenant-lite, containing no
financial covenants and will be paid-in-kind (PIK) interest. In
addition, there will be an equity infusion of between $119 million
and $127 million in varying increments due to the need to receive
existing shareholder approval, comprised of the aforementioned $6
million initial placement, a $21 million conditional placement to
Centerbridge and a rights issue of between $76 million and $84
million, which will be underwritten by Centerbridge. In addition,
Centerbridge will exchange $16 million of the senior unsecured
notes it holds to equity.

The Caa1 CFR reflects the weak earnings generation capacity of the
company, its high leverage and the difficult conditions it faces
given the pull back by the mining industry, particularly the gold
industry, in the drilling service areas that Boart provides. The
gold and copper industries account for approximately 63% of
revenue in the drilling services segment, the dominant revenue
driver. Given the mining industry's focus on cost containment,
investment discipline and reduced exploration and development run
rates, these challenging market conditions are expected to
continue through 2015 and result in continued pressure on debt
protection metrics. However, Boart continues to focus on cost
reduction and expects to achieve $58 million in SG&A savings in
2014 and has reduced capital spending levels from 2013. While
performance indicators for the third quarter ended September 30,
2014 point to a stabilization in rig utilization, this is at very
low levels; thereby maintaining continued pressure on pricing. At
the current quarterly EBITDA run rate annualized, leverage, pro
forma for the recapitalization, as measured by the debt/EBITDA
ratio would be approximately 11x and 15x on an unadjusted and
adjusted basis respectively. However, the rating incorporates the
company's improved liquidity position, which is expected to be
adequate to meet its requirements in a slowly improving market. On
a net debt basis the debt/EBITDA ratio would be approximately 7.7x
and 11.8x on an unadjusted and adjusted basis.

Additionally, the rating considers the company's position as a
leading global supplier of drilling services and complementary
drilling products, principally to the mineral mining industry,
particularly the gold industry, but also to the environment and
infrastructure end markets.

The SGL-2 speculative grade liquidity rating reflects the
company's strengthened cash position, which will increase to about
$240 million pro-forma for the recapitalization ($69 million at
June 30, 2014). Although the company has eliminated its revolving
credit facility, replacing it with the term loan Tranche A, this
amount is seen as well able to meet requirements. In addition, the
improved maturity profile and the absence of financial maintenance
covenants is captured in the SGL-2.

The stable outlook reflects Moody's expectation that conditions
will not deteriorate further but will likely stay around current
levels (ie capacity utilization at about 40%) with improvement in
business conditions occurring only over a protracted time frame
(through 2015 and into 2016).

The ratings could be downgraded should liquidity experience a
material deterioration, the company be unable to be free cash flow
breakeven, or debt/EBITDA increase above current levels. Given the
weakness expected in Boart's key markets and metrics over the next
twelve to eighteen months, a rating upgrade is unlikely.

Headquartered in South Jordan, Utah, Boart Longyear Limited is
incorporated in Australia and listed on the Australian Securities
Exchange Limited. The company provides drilling services and
complimentary drilling products and equipment, principally for the
mining and metals industries. Revenues for the twelve months ended
June 30, 2014 were $925 million.

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


BUILDING MATERIALS: Moody's Rates New $1.2BB Unsecured Notes Ba2
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a Ba2 rating to Building
Materials Corporation of America's ("BMCA") proposed $1.1 billion
senior unsecured notes due 2024. The proceeds of the proposed
notes will be used to redeem the company's $250 million senior
secured notes due 2020, $450 million senior unsecured notes due
2018, and $325 million senior unsecured notes due 2020. The
ratings for each of these notes will be withdrawn once redeemed.
Remaining proceeds will be used for tender/make whole premium,
accrued interest, and related fees and expenses. In related rating
actions, Moody's upgraded BMCA's $1.0 billion senior unsecured
notes due 2021 to Ba2 from Ba3, and affirmed the company's Ba2
Corporate Family Rating and Ba2-PD Probability of Default Rating.
The rating outlook remains stable.

The following ratings/assessments were affected by this action:

  Corporate Family Rating affirmed at Ba2;

  Probability of Default Rating affirmed at Ba2-PD;

  $1.0 billion Senior Unsecured Notes due 2021 upgraded to Ba2
  (LGD4) from Ba3 (LGD4); and,

  $1.1 billion Senior Unsecured Notes due 2024 assigned Ba2
  (LGD4).

Ratings Rationale

The Ba2 Corporate Family Rating incorporates BMCA's very good
liquidity profile and reasonable key credit metrics. BMCA's
liquidity profile is characterized by a robust amount of cash on
hand, and its ability to generate meaningful levels of free cash
flow throughout the year. BMCA has an extended maturity profile
with the nearest maturity being 2016 when the ABL revolving credit
facility (unrated) matures. BMCA is adding approximately $75
million of debt to its balance sheet, which is negligible relative
to company's current adjusted debt level of $2.3 billion
(inclusive of Moody's adjustments for pension and lease
liabilities) at June 29, 2014. Hence, debt leverage will remain
around 3.5x on pro forma basis as of June 29, 2014. Estimated cash
interest savings of about $12 million on an annualized basis will
result in better interest coverage ratios for the company. Moody's
calculate pro forma interest coverage (defined as EBITA-to-
interest expense) improving to around 3.75x from 3.5x over the
twelve months through June 29, 2014 (all ratios incorporate
Moody's standard adjustments). However, Moody's view the proposed
transaction as relatively aggressive. BMCA is paying a very large,
debt-financed redemption premium for the notes in addition to
accrued interest and related fees and expenses relative to the
expected reduction of future cash interest payments, representing
a payback period in excess of six years. Nevertheless, BMCA's debt
credit metrics are reasonable for the Ba2 Corporate Family Rating.

The assignment of a Ba2 to the company's proposed $1.1 billion
senior unsecured notes due 2024 and upgrade of BMCA's $1.0 billion
senior unsecured notes due 2021 to Ba2 from Ba3 result from the
removal of BMCA's senior secured notes from its capital structure.
As a result of the refinancing, BMCA's two unsecured notes are the
only significant credit facilities behind the company's senior
secured asset-based revolving credit facility, and now represent
the preponderance of debt in the company's new capital structure.
The senior unsecured notes rank pari passu with each other in a
recovery scenario.

The stable outlook reflects Moody's view that the company's very
good liquidity profile and debt credit metrics will remain
supportive of the current ratings.

Positive rating actions could ensue if BMCA's operating
performance improves, validating and exceeding Moody's forecasts,
such that EBITA-to-interest expense is sustained above 4.0x or
debt-to-EBITDA is sustained below 3.0x (all ratios incorporate
Moody's standard adjustments).

Negative rating pressures could result if BMCA's operating
performance deteriorates or fails to meet Moody's expectations
such that EBITA-to-interest expense is trending near 3.0x, or
debt-to-EBITDA nears 4.0x (all ratios incorporate Moody's standard
adjustments). Sizeable dividends, significant debt-financed
acquisitions, or a deteriorating liquidity profile could adversely
impact the company's rating outlook as well.

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


CAP-CON AUTOMOTIVE: S&P Withdraws 'B+' CCR on Debt Repayment
------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services withdrew its ratings, including
the 'B+' corporate CREDIT RATING, on Bridgeport, Conn.-based auto
supplier Cap-Con Automotive Technologies Ltd. at the company's
request.

The company refinanced its credit facilities following the sale of
its Casco Automotive Group Inc. division and repaid all of its
previously rated debt.


CARRIZO OIL: Moody's Rates New $250MM Unsecured Notes B2
--------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a B2 rating to Carrizo Oil &
Gas, Inc.'s proposed $250 million senior unsecured notes due 2020.
Carrizo's B1 Corporate Family Rating (CFR) and other ratings are
unaffected, and the ratings outlook is stable.

The proceeds from the proposed notes offering will be used to
finance substantially all of the $250 million acquisition of Eagle
Ford Minerals, LLC. The Eagle Ford Minerals acquisition includes a
25% non-operated working interest in 81 gross (20.1 net) wells
currently operated by Carrizo and roughly 4,900 net undeveloped
acres in the Eagle Ford Shale.

"While Carrizo's financial leverage will modestly increase as a
result of the debt financing of the Eagle Ford Minerals, LLC
acquisition, the increased leverage is not seen as a material
change in Carrizo credit profile," commented Gretchen French,
Moody's Vice President.

Issuer: Carrizo Oil & Gas, Inc.

Ratings Assigned:

$250 Million Senior Unsecured Notes due 2020, Rated B2 (LGD 5)

Moody's current ratings for Carrizo Oil & Gas, Inc. are:

Corporate Family Rating of B1

Probability of Default Rating of B1-PD

Senior Unsecured Notes, Rated B2 (LGD 5)

Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating of SGL-2

Ratings Rationale

Carrizo's B2 rated senior unsecured notes reflect their
contractual subordination to the company's secured revolving
credit facility, which will have a borrowing base of $800 million
and an elected commitment amount of $685 million, after giving
effect to the proposed notes and the $250 million acquisition. The
unsecured notes benefit from upstream guarantees from all material
subsidiaries. The size of the potential senior secured claims
relative to the unsecured notes outstanding results in the senior
notes being notched one rating below the B1 CFR under Moody's Loss
Given Default Methodology.

Carrizo's B1 CFR reflects the company's relatively balanced
production profile, with a robust, oil-focused drilling inventory
in the Eagle Ford Shale, which should support production growth,
healthy cash margins and returns, and declining leverage trends
through 2015. The B1 rating is restrained by Carrizo's small scale
in terms of production and proved developed reserves, as well as
the high capital intensity relative to cash flow required to
developed its high percentage (over 60%) of proven undeveloped
reserves.

While the debt financing of the Eagle Ford Minerals, LLC
acquisition will modestly increase Carrizo's financial leverage in
terms of debt/production, it makes strategic sense for the company
given it is a purchase of a non-operated partner in its existing
Eagle Ford wells where it serves as the operator. Pro forma for
the transaction, debt/production will increase to $36,967/barrel
of oil equivalent (boe) of daily flowing production, from
$33,469/boe, based on second quarter 2014 results. The acquisition
also represents a good purchase price relative to the PV-10 value
of the proved reserves of $332 million (based on SEC pricing of
$90/barrel for oil); however, with over 50% of this value
attributed to proved undeveloped reserves, Carrizo will need to
spend additional capital to develop these reserves.

Carrizo's SGL-2 rating reflects adequate liquidity through 2015.
As of June 30, 2014 and pro forma for the proposed notes and full
funding of the Eagle Ford acquisition, the company had $8.6
million of cash and cash equivalents plus roughly $567 million
available under its credit facility, which has a $685 million
elected commitment amount. This available liquidity is sufficient
to fund projected capital outspend through 2015. Moody's project
sufficient covenant cushion headroom through 2015.

The rating outlook is stable. An upgrade could be considered if
Carrizo is successful in continuing to grow production at sound
returns, with production approaching 50,000 barrels of oil
equivalent (BOE) per day and retained cash flow to debt being
maintained above 30%. A downgrade is possible should Carrizo
experience weakened capital productivity or leverage metrics
(retained cash flow to debt falling below 20%).

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

Carrizo Oil & Gas, Inc. is an independent exploration and
production company headquartered in Houston, Texas.


CASTLE HOME BUILDERS: Wins Sanctions Against Everhome Mortgage
--------------------------------------------------------------
Bankruptcy Judge Jacqueline P. Cox granted, in part, and denied,
in part, the request of Castle Home Builders, Inc., et al., to
enforce the order confirming its Chapter 11 plan and to impose
sanctions against Everhome Mortgage.  The Reorganized Debtor
complains that notwithstanding modified mortgage terms set forth
in the Confirmed Plans for Castle Home and debtor Tammy Jo Long,
Everhome continues to bill for a prepetition mortgage on property
located at 109 W. Jones Street, Savanna, Georgia.

Judge Cox directed Everhome to pay actual damages in the amount of
$100,000 (in addition to the $35,839.38 fee award) to the
Reorganized Debtor on or before Nov. 17, 2014.  The request for
punitive damages is denied.  The Court will hold a status hearing
on compliance with the terms of the Order on Nov. 20 at 10:00 a.m.

A copy of the Court's Oct. 24, 2014 Amended Memorandum Opinion is
available at http://is.gd/id6je0from Leagle.com.

Castle Home Builders, Inc., which does business as Luxury Living,
Luxury Living Savannah, Luxury Living Chicago, and Luxury Living
Tybee, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy (Bankr. N.D. Ill. Case No.
11-19428) on May 6, 2011.  Judge Jacqueline P. Cox presides over
the case.  Stephen J. Brown, Esq., at Schuyler Roche & Crisham,
serves as the Debtor's counsel.  In its petition, Castle Home
estimated $1 million to $10 million in both assets and debts.  The
petition was signed by Tammy Jo Long, president.

Mr. Long also filed a petition for Chapter 11 bankruptcy (Case No.
11-19484). On May 25, 2011, the Court entered an order authorizing
joint administration of the cases.

The Debtors' prepetition business operations involved the
purchasing, renovation and operation of multiple historic houses
in Savannah, Georgia.  The homes were rented to wealthy travelers
and tourists as short to mid-term luxury accommodations.

The Debtors' stated goal in these bankruptcy proceedings was to
modify the mortgages that existed on various business properties
and to bring serviceable debt back in line with post-recession
appraised value.  After spending nearly two years negotiating with
mortgage lenders, in May and June, 2013, the Debtors proposed
separate plans of reorganization; all voting classes voted in
favor of the Plans.  The Plans contemplated the re-titling of the
Debtors' business properties to the name of the newly formed
entity, Luxury Properties, LLC, which entity would be primarily
responsible for making all required plan payments.  The Plans also
provide that 100% of the equity interests in Luxury Properties,
LLC would be held by Luxury Living Properties Holding LLC.

On June 27, 2013, the Court entered an Order confirming the
Debtors' Plans of Reorganization.  On August 8, 2013, the Court
restated the Confirmation Order nunc pro tunc to the Confirmation
Date.


COUNTRY STONE: Wants Until Dec. 4 to File Schedules
---------------------------------------------------
Country Stone Holdings, Inc., and its affiliated debtors ask the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of Illinois, Peoria
Division, to enter an order extending the time within which they
must file their (i) schedules of assets and liabilities, (ii)
schedule of executory contracts and unexpired leases, and (iii)
statement of financial affairs, until Dec. 4, 2014.

Counsel to the Debtors, Peter A. Siddiqui, Esq., at Katten Muchin
Rosenman LLP, explains that the Debtors consist of 17 separate
business entities that will file individual Schedules and
Statements.  Due to the complexity of the Debtors' business, the
diversity of their operations and assets, and the limited staffing
available to gather, process and complete the required Schedules
and Statements in the limited time available prior to the
commencement of the case, the Debtors do not believe the 14-day
automatic extension of time provided for by Rule 1007(c) of the
Bankruptcy Rules will be sufficient to permit completion of the
Schedules and Statements.

                        About Country Stone

COUNTRY STONE: Proposes $34-Mil. of DIP Loans From First Midwest
----------------------------------------------------------------
Country Stone Holdings, Inc., and its affiliated debtors ask the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of Illinois, Peoria
Division, for approval to obtain postpetition financing from First
Midwest Bank.

An immediate and critical need exists for the Debtors to obtain
funds in order to finance the continued operation of their
businesses, the Debtors' counsel, Peter A. Siddiqui, Esq., at
Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP, tells the Court.  He says the Debtors
have an urgent need to obtain the postpetition loans and use cash
collateral to, among other things, finance the ordinary costs of
their operations, maintain business relationships with vendors,
suppliers and customers, and satisfy other working capital and
operational needs -- all of which are necessary to preserve and
maintain the Debtors' going concern values.

First Midwest is already the prepetition lender of the Debtors.
Pursuant to a First Amended and Restated Loan Agreement dated as
of August 23, 2013, as amended, with First Midwest, as pre-
petition lender, the Debtors obtained loans and financial
accommodations to fund business operations.  As of Oct. 22, 2014,
the current outstanding amount owing under the loan agreement is
$38,177,950.  The loans are secured by a substantial portion of
the Debtors' assets and are guaranteed by non-debtors Bjustrom
Bjustrom and Country Stone & Soil, Inc.

First Midwest has agreed to provide postpetition financing on
these terms:

   * Borrowers:            The Debtors

   * Postpetition Lender:  First Midwest Bank

   * Maximum Borrowing     Available on Final Basis: $34,000,000

                           amounts set forth in the Approved
                           Budget after taking the following
                           variance into account.  The Debtors
                           will be deemed to be in compliance
                           with the Approved Budget so long as
                           (x) the Debtors' actual receipts
                           and sales are not less than 85% of
                           the projected receipts and sales
                           from the Approved Budget as
                           calculated on a cumulative basis,
                           (y) the Debtors' total disbursements do
                           not exceed the total budgeted
                           disbursements from the Approved Budget
                           by more than 10% as calculated on a
                           cumulative basis, and (z) the Out-of-

----------------------------------------------------------------
Clarks Sales and Service, Inc., filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy
protection (Bankr. S.D. Ind. Case No. 14-09839) on Oct. 24, 2014,
estimating its assets and debts at between $1 million and $10
million each.  The petition was signed by Robert Clark, authorized
individual.

Justin L. Mack at Indystar.com reports that owner Bob Clark said
in a letter to customers that a number of financial problems that
have plagued the Debtor since 2008 led to the bankruptcy filing.
Mr. Clark said in aa written statement, "We've had some serious
challenges to overcome, namely the decrease in sales through the
2008 recession and the loss of our inventory at our Greenwood
store due to flooding and mold issues.  By filing Chapter 11, we
will be able to continue operating fully while we are
restructuring our debts.  We've made the decision to consolidate
our operations to our Castleton area showroom and close our
Greenwood location so we can focus our attention on our main
business -- high end retail and builder/remodeler appliance
supply."

According to Indystar.com, the Debtor will keep its members of
sales and management staff.  Mr. Clark said that the bankruptcy
filing shouldn't change the shopping experience at Clark
Appliance, the report states.

Judge Jeffrey J. Graham presides over the case.

Courtney Elaine Chilcote, Esq., and Jeffrey M. Hester, Esq., at
Tucker, Hester, Baker & Krebs, LLC, serve as the Debtor's

COUTURE HOTEL: Gets Interim OK to Use Cash Collateral Until Nov. 7
------------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankrupt Court for the Northern District of Texas

High Black-St. Mary Enterprises Inc. to use cash collateral of
Armed Forces Bank, N.A., Mansa Capital LLC, and Ability Insurance
Company for a one month-period from Oct. 7, 2014, through Nov. 7,
2014.

A hearing is set for Nov. 7, 2014, at 9:00 a.m. to consider final
approval of the Debtor's request to use cash collateral.

In connection with the interim order, the Debtor will pay to Mansa
the amount of $60,000 during the interim period and, in any event,
prior to the final cash collateral hearing for Mansa to apply
towards any of Debtor's obligations under the loan and related
documents to Mansa, in its sole and absolute discretion.  To
accommodate cash flow, the Debtor shall pay an amount not less
than $25,000 on or by Oct. 22, 2014, an additional $25,000 on or
before Oct. 29, 2014, and any remaining balance shall be paid no
later than Nov. 4, 2014, or the day immediately preceding the
final cash collateral hearing, whichever is earlier.

period from the Petition Date to approximately Nov. 4, 2014, or
such other date that occurs after the Court holds the final
hearing on its request to use cash collateral.

in various types of property that would constitute cash collateral

      and executed in favor of Armed Forces in the original
      principal of $6,650,000;

   b) a Deed of Trust, Assignment of Rents, and Security Agreement
      dated Sept. 30, 2011, and allegedly properly recorded
      against the Las Vegas Hotels.

collateral pursuant to a Promissory Note and Loan Agreement dated
July 3, 2013, and executed in favor of Mansa in the original
principal amount of $8,870,000; and (ii) a Deed of Trust,
Assignment of Rents, and Security Agreement dated July 5, 2013 and
allegedly properly recorded against the Dallas Hotel, securing the
Debtor's obligations under the Note.

The Debtor believes that Ability may claim interests in cash
collateral pursuant (i) a Promissory Note and Loan Agreement dated
June 11, 2013, and executed by the Debtor in favor of Southwest
Guaranty Mortgage Corp. (simultaneously transferred to Ability) in
the original principal amount of $3,200,000; and (ii) those
certain Deed of Trust, Assignment of Rents, and Security Agreement
dated June 11, 2013 and allegedly properly recorded against the
Corpus Hotel, securing the Debtor's obligations under the Note.

Although the Debtor was not current on its obligations prior to
the Petition Date, the Debtor believes the bankruptcy
reorganization will help generate positive cash flow post-petition
as the Hotels continue to stabilize.  The Debtor notes that the
Las Vegas Hotels have a projected stabilized value of $13,100,000,
which far exceeds the principal balance of the Armed Forces loan.
The Dallas Hotel has a projected stabilized value of $29,300,000,
which far exceeds the principal balance of the Mansa loan. The
Corpus Hotel has a projected stabilized value of $7,100,000, which
far exceeds the principal balance of the Ability loan.

Nonetheless, the Debtor is prepared to commit itself to a budget,
and to agree to a super-priority claim under section 507(b), as
well as replacement liens in post-petition assets, all to the
extent of any actual diminution in the value of cash collateral.

Mark S. Toronjo, Esq., at Toronjo & Prosser Law, explained that
the Debtor has an immediate, urgent, and ongoing need for the use
of its present and future cash.  Among other things, the Debtor
has ongoing obligations to: (i) pay for employees; (ii) pay for
purchases of food and beverage; (iii) pay for upkeep, maintenance,
and cleaning of the Hotels; (iv) pay franchise fees; (v) pay for
utilities; (vi) pay for security related services; (vii) pay for
taxes; (viii) pay for the costs of their reorganization efforts,
including professional fees and US Trustee fees; (ix) potentially
pay management fees; and (x) pay for all of the various goods and
services necessary to operate and run the Hotels.  Without paying
for the same, the Debtor would not be able to keep the Hotels
open, would be in violation of franchise agreements and numerous
local laws and ordinances, and would have no ability to
reorganize.

CRAIGHEAD COUNTY FAIR: To Sell 15 Acres at Old Fairgrounds
----------------------------------------------------------
Craighead County Fair Association's reorganization plan will
include selling the remaining 15 acres at the old fairgrounds and
using that money to pay down debt, Arkansas Business reports,
citing James F. Dowden, Esq., at James F. Dowden, P.A., the
attorney for the Debtor.

Business relates.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on Oct. 15, 2014, the
Debtor is almost $10 million in debt resulting from its move to a
larger site on East Johnson Avenue, in Jonesboro, Arkansas.
Unexpected expenses and cost overruns were factors in the debt.
The commercial development that is taking place at the old
fairground location has involved selling pieces of property, with
Focus Bank getting the proceeds of the sales.  According to the
report, Fair Board Association President Michael Cureton says
everyone will get paid.

Mr. Dowden said approximately $6.2 million is owed to Focus Bank,
and another $3.3 million is owed mainly to vendors and suppliers
for work on the new location, Arkansas Business states.

CTI BIOPHARMA: Acquires Exclusive Worldwide License to Tosedostat
-----------------------------------------------------------------
CTI BioPharma Corp. has acquired worldwide rights to tosedostat
through concurrent transactions with Vernalis R&D Limited
(Vernalis), the originator of tosedostat, and Chroma Therapeutics
Ltd. (Chroma), through which CTI previously held a sublicense with
respect to tosedostat in North, Central and South America.

Tosedostat is a first-in-class selective inhibitor of
aminopeptidases, which are required by tumor cells to provide
amino acids necessary for growth and tumor cell survival.
Tosedostat is currently being evaluated in multiple Phase 2
clinical trials for the treatment of patients with Acute Myeloid
Leukemia (AML) or high-risk Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS), which
are intended to inform the design for a Phase 3 registration study
to support potential regulatory approval.

"Our portfolio strategy is to acquire novel best-in-class agents
that, either as monotherapy or in combination with other
therapies, can have a profound effect in the treatment of patients
with blood related cancers," said James A. Bianco, M.D., president
and CEO of CTI.  "We are committed to building our blood-related
cancer franchise.  We feel there is strong interest in this oral,
once-daily drug candidate, which we believe is attributable to the
positive clinical results to date, and we are pleased to have
exclusive worldwide rights to develop tosedostat for patients in
areas where there remains an unmet medical need.  Over the next
year, CTI and its advisors intend to develop a registration path
for tosedostat in the US and Europe.  In the event of positive
clinical data and productive regulatory discussions, we would
intend to start a pivotal program commencing in 2016."

Under the terms of an asset purchase agreement with Chroma, CTI
acquired all of Chroma's right, title and interest in tosedostat
and certain related assets in exchange for issuing to Chroma $21.3
million in shares of CTI's preferred stock convertible into 9
million shares of CTI common stock, 12 percent of which has been
placed in escrow pending expiry of Chroma's indemnification
obligations.  Chroma and CTI also terminated their prior license
agreement relating to tosedostat, thereby eliminating potential
future developmental and sales milestone payments by CTI of up
$209 million thereunder.  Concurrently, CTI entered into a license
agreement with Vernalis for the exclusive worldwide right to use
certain patents and other intellectual property rights to develop,
market and commercialize tosedostat and certain other analogues.
Under the Vernalis license agreement, CTI agreed to make tiered
royalty payments of no more than a high single-digit percentage,
on a country-by-country basis, for the longer of ten years
following commercial launch or the expiration of relevant patents.

CTI filed a Current Report Form 8-K with the U.S. Securities and
Exchange Commission with further information on the transaction, a
copy of which is available for free at http://is.gd/VPRStd

D&L ENERGY: To Sell Assets to Resource Land for $7.65 Million
-------------------------------------------------------------
D&L Energy, Inc., will sell most of its assets to Resource Land
Holdings, LLC, for $7.65 million, according to a filing made in
U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Ohio.

The assets were supposed to be sold at a public auction on Oct. 24
but no bidder came forward with an offer to buy the assets.  The
sale of the assets to Resource Land is subject to the bankruptcy
court's approval.

The assets do not include the company's ownership stake in
Northstar Disposal Services II, LLC and Northstar Disposal
Services VI, LLC as well as its membership interest in North Lima
Disposal Well #4, LLC, which will be sold in a private deal.

Earlier this month, ITG Taxable Fund LLLP and several other
creditors filed objections to block the public sale of the assets.

ITG, which has agreed to extend a $2 million loan to fund the
sale, expressed concern its lien on D&L Energy's assets wasn't
recognized as a "valid, perfected, first priority secured interest
attaching to the sale proceeds," according to court filings.  The
company resolved the objection by agreeing to pay ITG in full at
the closing of the sale.

Meanwhile, other creditors, including Artex Oil Co. and Atlas
Resources LLC, expressed fear the properties they own would be
included in the proposed sale.  Their objections were resolved at
a court hearing held on Oct. 6.

"drilling arm" of D&L, Petroflow ceased all operations prior to
the filing of these bankruptcy matters.  Petroflow has no current
income, no bank accounts, and no employees.  Paparodis is the
president, CEO and sole director of Petroflow.

D&L and Petroflow filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy (Bankr. N.D.
Ohio Lead Case No. 13-40813) on April 16, 2013.  Judge Kay Woods
oversees the case.

The Debtor disclosed in its amended schedules, $40,615,677 in
assets and $6,187,217 in liabilities as of the Chapter 11 filing.

Brian T. Angeloni, Esq., Kathryn A. Belfance, Esq., Steven
Heimberger, Esq., and Todd A. Mazzola, Esq., at Roderick Linton

DEALMAKERS CONSULTANTS: Showcase Wins Retroactive Stay Relief
-------------------------------------------------------------
U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Robert Kwan in Los Angeles, California,
granted the request of Showcase Investments, Inc., for relief from
and retroactive annulment of the automatic stay in the Chapter 11
case of DealMakers Consultants, Inc.

Showcase Investments seeks stay relief with respect to real
property at 6029 Eileen Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90043.

The Debtor opposed the motion.  The Debtor argued that granting
annulment will force it to re-enter bankruptcy, and that denying
annulment will therefore promote judicial economy.

Although the Debtor's Chapter 11 bankruptcy case was dismissed on
Oct. 9, 2014 and the automatic stay terminated by operation of law
pursuant to 11 U.S.C. Sec. 362(c)(2)(B), the motion is not moot,
Judge Kwan said, because Showcase Investments seeks retroactive
annulment of the automatic stay and in rem relief pursuant to 11
U.S.C. Sec. 362(d)(4).

A copy of Judge Kwan's Oct. 27, 2014 Memorandum Decision is
available at http://is.gd/GmUiJifrom Leagle.com.

DealMakers Consultants Inc., based in Los Angeles, Calif., filed
for Chapter 11 bankruptcy (Bankr. C.D. Cal. Case No. 14-25826) on

Casey B. Yim, Esq., at Murchison & Cumming LLP, serves as the
Debtor's counsel.  In its petition, the Debtor estimated assets of
$1 million to $10 million, and liabilities of $1 million to
$10 million.  The petition was signed by Glen Quilter, president.

MaloneBailey, LLP, in Houston, Texas, issued a "going concern"

addition to limited cash, limited revenue and unprofitable
operations.  For the three months ended July 31, 2014, the Company
sustained net losses.  These factors, among others, raise
substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a
going concern for a reasonable period of time," the Company stated
in the Form 10-Q for the period ended July 31, 2014.


EDWARD FREEMAN: Court Grants Motion to Avoid Judicial Lien
----------------------------------------------------------
Debtor Edward Freeman Jr., sought and obtained Bankruptcy Court
approval of his "Motion to Avoid Judicial Lien", pursuant to which
he seeks to avoid judicial liens obtained by Douglas Grasso.
Mr. Freeman seeks to avoid Mr. Grasso's judicial liens as
impairing his homestead exemption in property located at 34 Arbor
Street, Wenham, Massachusetts.

Mr. Grasso opposed, asserting that the Debtor's homestead
exemption is invalid, and thus his judicial liens do not impair an
exemption to which the Debtor is entitled and cannot be avoided
under 11 U.S.C. Sec. 522(f)(1)(A).  Mr. Grasso maintains that the
Debtor's interest in the property is a remainder interest because
the deed by which the Debtor acquired his interest gives his
sister, Valerie Daniels, a life estate in the property, and that,
under Massachusetts law, the holder of a remainder interest is not
an owner entitled to claim a homestead.

U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Joan N. Feeney held that the Debtor does not
hold a mere remainder interest and is entitled to claim a
homestead exemption as an "owner" within the meaning of Mass. Gen.
Laws ch. 188, Sections 1 and 3(a).  As the nature of the Debtor's
ownership interest was the sole issue, the Court shall enter an
order granting the Debtor's Motion to Avoid the Judicial Lien, the
judge said in her Oct. 27 Memorandum available at
http://is.gd/t70LpMfrom Leagle.com.

On May 15, 2007, Mr. Grasso obtained a pre-judgment attachment
against the Debtor from the Essex Superior Court, in the amount of
$140,000.

Edward Freeman, Jr., filed a petition for relief under Chapter 13
of the Bankruptcy Code (Bankr. D. Mass. Case No. 12-10050) on
Jan. 4, 2012.  He converted his case to one under Chapter 11 of
the Bankruptcy Code on May 2, 2012, and converted his case to
Chapter 7 on Feb. 20, 2013.


ELBIT IMAGING: Unit To Sell "Mango" Operation to Fox-Wisel
----------------------------------------------------------
Elbit Imaging Ltd. disclosed that its wholly owned subsidiary
Elbit Fashion Ltd. signed a sale agreement with Fox-Wisel Ltd.
with regards to the sale of the operation and business of "Mango"
retail stores in Israel.

Under the Agreement, Elbit Fashion will sell and assign Fox all
business activity, stores, investments in the leased properties,
furniture and equipment, inventory and customer loyalty program
and any and all rights relating thereto, free and clear of any
third party rights, except as explicitly set in the Agreement and
net of certain liabilities related to the business activities of
Mango, for a consideration which is estimated at approximately NIS
35 million, subject to adjustments as of the closing date of the
transaction and as specified in the Agreement.

The closing date of the transaction has been scheduled for Jan. 5,
2015, or the date of transfer of the business activity in full to
Fox in accordance with the provisions of the Agreement, whichever
is later, provided that by such date all of the closing conditions

approval of the Israeli Antitrust Commissioner.

As of the date of execution of the Agreement, Elbit Fashion
operates 28 stores selling apparel, footwear and accessories of
the "Mango" brand in Israel.

                       About Elbit Imaging

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

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

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

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

Elbit Imaging reported a loss of NIS1.56 billion on
NIS360.59 million of total revenues for the year ended Dec. 31,
2013, as compared with a loss of NIS483.98 million on NIS418.48
million of total revenues in 2012.

As of June 30, 2014, the Company had NIS4.05 billion in total
assets, NIS3.16 billion in total liabilities and NIS889.58 million
shareholders' equity.

Tohmatsu, in Tel-Aviv, Israel, issued a "going concern"
qualification on the consolidated financial statements for the
year ended Dec. 31, 2013.

in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Wilmington, Del., the official
committee of unsecured creditors asked a judge to help them get
information about plans to sell the company, which has been
struggling in Chapter 11 since June 2013.  The panel says it
suspects Exide is being steered into a sale that will put the
company into the hands of senior lenders, leaving most creditors
out in the cold, the report related.

EVRAZ NORTH AMERICA: Moody's Assigns 'Ba3' Corporate Family Rating
------------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned at Ba3 Corporate Family Rating
(CFR) and Ba3-PD probability of default rating to Evraz North
America Limited (ENA). At the same time, Moody's assigned a Ba3
rating to Evraz Inc. NA Canada's (EICA) proposed $500 million
senior secured notes. The notes will be guaranteed by EICA's
parent -- ENA -- and by Evraz Inc. NA (EINA) and other
subsidiaries of the parent. The notes will be secured by a first
lien on EICA and the guarantors' fixed and intangible assets and a
second lien on the assets securing the asset-based credit facility
(ABL -- principally accounts receivable and inventory). Proceeds
will be used to repay approximately $495 million in intercompany
loans to Evraz PLC, the ultimate parent of ENA. The remaining
roughly $280 million in parent intercompany loans will be
subordinated to the notes and the ABL. Moody's previous rating on
the entities that comprise EINA and EICA was withdrawn in October
2010. The outlook is stable.

Assignments:

Issuer: Evraz Inc. NA Canada

  Senior Secured Regular Bond/Debenture (Foreign Currency),
  Assigned Ba3, LGD3

Reinstatements:

Issuer: Evraz North America Limited

  Probability of Default Rating, Reinstated to Ba3-PD

  Corporate Family Rating, Reinstated to Ba3

Outlook Actions:

Issuer: Evraz Inc. NA Canada

  Outlook, Assigned Stable

Issuer: Evraz North America Limited

  Outlook, Stable

Ratings Rationale

ENA's Ba3 CFR considers the company's solid niche market position
as an electric arc furnace steel producer and producer of
engineered steel products selling into the rail, Oil Country
Tubular Goods (OCTG) and general industrial markets through its
long, tubular and flat products segments. The operating locations
provide good access to markets in Western Canada and the Western
US, which in turn gives access to rail and OCTG steel and pipe
requirements in these regions, where good growth potential exists.
The rating reflects the company's acceptable debt protection
metrics and leverage, which pro-forma for the financing Moody's
expect to exhibit EBIT/interest and debt/EBITDA of around 2.2x and
3.4x respectively (incorporating Moody's standard adjustments --
principally for pensions and leases) based on performance for the
twelve months ended June 30, 2014. Moody's expect the company to
achieve a sustainable EBITDA run rate of at least $300 million.
However, the rating reflects the volatility inherent in the steel
industry, the ongoing import challenges, and the reliance on
increasing rail infrastructure demand and oil and gas transmission
and development demand to achieve volume growth objectives and
higher price realizations and consequently improved metrics.
Recent trade cases in the US on imports of OCTG products have been
favorable to US producers and while slowing of imported product is
not materially noticeable to date, prices have stabilized. Similar
cases remain outstanding in Canada.

The rating also considers the complexity of the company's
organizational structure with multiple jurisdictional
incorporations, cross border transactions, and the parent
intercompany subordinated loans being governed by the Russian
Federation government laws.

ENA is a wholly owned subsidiary of Evraz Group S.A. (Ba3 CFR),
which is ultimately owned by EVRAZ plc (unrated). Evraz Group S.A.
is one of the largest vertically integrated steel, mining and
vanadium companies in Russia. Evraz Group S.A. produced 15.9
million metric tons of steel in 2013 and generated revenues of $14
billion.

Moody's notes that ENA has filed a registration statement for a
proposed initial public offering.

The consolidated entities liquidity is supported by its good
operating cash flow and a $610 ABL credit facility expiring in
December 2016. Availability at December 31, 2013 was $261 million.
Moody's expect the company to maintain acceptable availability
through its seasonal requirements.

The stable outlook reflects expectations that business conditions
in the company's key market segments such as rail/infrastructure
and OCTG and slowly improving conditions in commercial
construction, which will benefit the flat rolled segments plate,
coil and structural tubing demand, will continue over the next 12
months allowing a minimum EBITDA run rate of at least $300
million. The outlook also considers the company's good liquidity
profile.

Under Moody's loss given default methodology, the Ba3 rating on
the senior secured notes reflects its somewhat weaker collateral
position relative to the ABL, which is secured by accounts
receivable and inventory, more liquid assets.

The Ba3 CFR could be favorable impacted should ENA be able to
generate earnings levels that result in a sustainable debt/EBITDA
ratio of no more than 3x, EBIT/Interest ratio of at least 3.5x and
(operating cash flow less dividends)/debt of at least 20%. The
rating could be downgraded should earnings and cash flow
deteriorate such that debt/EBITDA approaches 4x, EBIT/interest
falls below 2.75x and (operating cash flow less dividends/debt) is
less than 15%.

ENA is a limited company organized under the laws of England and
Wales. EICA is a Canadian company incorporated under the Canadian
Business Corporations Act and EINA is a Delaware Corporation. For
the twelve months ended June 30, 2014, the consolidated entities
shipped approximately just over 2.6 million tons and had revenues
of roughly $2.8 billion, excluding freight, which is mostly an
offset to cost of goods sold.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Global Steel
Industry published in October 2012. Other methodologies used
include Loss Given Default for Speculative-Grade Non-Financial
Companies in the U.S., Canada and EMEA published in June 2009.


EVRAZ NORTH AMERICA: S&P Assigns Prelim. 'B+' CCR; Outlook Stable
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its 'B+' preliminary
long-term foreign currency and local currency corporate credit
ratings to North American steel producer Evraz North America Ltd.
(ENA).  The outlook is stable.

S&P assigned a 'BB' preliminary issue rating and '1' preliminary
recovery rating to the US$500 million high-yield senior secured
bond to be issued by Evraz Inc. NA Canada, a 51% subsidiary of ENA
and unconditionally guaranteed by ENA and all its material
operating subsidiaries.

The preliminary ratings assume the successful placement of the
bond.  The proceeds from the bond will be used to prepay a portion
of the shareholder loan to Evraz Group S.A. (B+/Stable/--), the
100% owner of ENA.

ENA is a 100% North America-based subsidiary of Luxembourg-
registered integrated steel-maker Evraz Group S.A. (B+/Stable/--).

The rating on ENA reflects its stand-alone credit profile (SACP),
which S&P assess as 'bb-', and is capped by the 'B+' rating on its
100% parent Evraz Group S.A.

"We see ENA as a strategically important member of the Evraz
group, given its 100% ownership, size, some operational
integration with the group, and the shared name," said Standard &
Poor's credit analyst Svetlana Ashchepkova.  "We don't think that
our rating on ENA can exceed that on the parent, because Evraz has
full control of ENA's strategy, financial policy, and board, which
doesn't include any independent directors," said Ms. Ashchepkova.

ENA operates in the tubular, flat, and long segments.  S&P's view
of its SACP takes into account the highly competitive and volatile
North American steel market.  This market is characterized by high
volumes of low-cost imports and incumbent steelmakers' capacity
surplus, which was idled during the downturn, but which is
gradually coming online.  ENA's scale and scope is small compared
with that of its rated competitors in the North American steel
market (US Steel, AK Steel, and Steel Dynamics).  This may lead to
significant price pressure in the tubular segment and higher
volatility compared with larger peers', as in 2013, when profits
declined largely as a result of one-off events.

These weaknesses are partly offset by ENA's strong market share in
its key markets, where S&P sees relatively strong fundamentals.
In particular, S&P believes that demand for tubular products will
remain resilient, despite the recent weakening of crude to about
US$80/barrel, which S&P assumes will likely persist over the next
few years.  S&P understands that exploration and production
budgets of the largest North American oil and gas companies will
remain relatively robust, at least in the short term.  The
business risk profile is also supported by ENA's second-largest
segment, long products, which accounted for around one-third of
revenues and almost two-thirds of EBITDA in 2013.  Long products
enjoy strong demand from Class I Railroads, which are among its
key customers.

The stable outlook on ENA mirrors that on Evraz Group S.A. and
also reflects S&P's view that ENA will demonstrate resilient
performance in the second half of 2014 and in 2015.  S&P views the
ratio of adjusted debt to EBITDA below 4x as commensurate with the
current long-term rating.

S&P do not factor a potential IPO by ENA into the rating at this
stage, due to uncertainties about the timing, terms, use of
proceeds, and corporate governance set-up after the IPO.

S&P could lower the rating if ENA's performance is hurt by
increasing competition in the North American market or by lower
demand from the oil and gas sector as a result of protracted crude
price weakness.  An increase in leverage, with adjusted debt to
EBITDA above 4x for a prolonged period, and negative FOCF would
likely lead to a downgrade.  S&P could also lower the rating if
ENA's liquidity weakens as a result of less robust cash flow
generation or constrained access to its asset-based loan.
Additionally, S&P would also likely lower the rating if it lowered
the rating on Evraz Group S.A., ENA's parent.

S&P would likely raise the rating to 'BB-', in line with the
company's SACP, if it upgraded Evraz Group S.A.  An upgrade would
also require ENA's resilient performance, maintenance of moderate
leverage with adjusted debt to EBITDA below 3.5x on a consistent
basis, and adequate liquidity.


FIRST NIAGARA: Fitch Puts Bb+ Sub. Debt Rating on Watch Negative
----------------------------------------------------------------
Following First Niagara Financial Group's (FNFG) sizeable $800
million non-cash impairment charge to goodwill as well as a $45
million reserve for a process issue related to certain customer
deposit accounts, Fitch Ratings has placed the FNFG's 'BBB-/F3'
Issuer Default Ratings (IDRs) on Rating Watch Negative.  Fitch has
also affirmed the long- and short-term IDRs of First Niagara Bank,
N.A (full legal name) at 'BBB-/F3'.

KEY RATING DRIVERS -- IDRS, VRs AND SENIOR DEBT

The Negative Rating Watch on the holding company reflects Fitch's
view that the holding company's financial flexibility continues to
be pressured.  Fitch recognizes that the sizeable impairment
charge is an accounting event and does not impact cash.  However,
the net loss will now require the bank subsidiary to receive
regulatory approval on a quarterly basis (potentially up to 1Q'17)
in order to dividend up to the holding company.  While the company
will more than likely receive approval from regulators, it will
limit the parent company's financial flexibility, which Fitch
already viewed as pressured given its comparatively low levels of
capital.  Fitch estimates that the company presently has
sufficient debt service coverage (2.0 times) over the next 12
months including common dividends, preferred dividends, interest
expense on various debt instruments excluding bank dividends.

Additionally, the company also announced a $45 million reserve
charge to address a process issue related to certain customer
deposit accounts.  This reserve is an early estimate and the
company has begun an internal review.  Fitch will continue to
assess future impact, if any, to profitability as the company
discloses further information.

The rating affirmation of the bank reflects Fitch's view that core
operating performance continues to be satisfactory and in-line
with rating expectations.  Nonetheless, similar to peers, FNFG's
earnings will likely be pressured by the low interest rate
environment.  Additionally, Fitch considers asset quality to be
solid.  FNFG's NCOs and NPAs stood at 0.23% and 1.39% for 3Q14.
Although, Fitch believes NCOs will increase from historical
performance given commercial loan growth, these are expected to
remain manageable.

RATING SENSITIVITIES -- IDRS, VRs AND SENIOR DEBT

Fitch expects to resolve the Rating Watch Negative within the next
60 days.  The agency's review will focus on clarity regarding
holding company liquidity plans, Basel III capital compliance, and
plans for the company's CLO portfolio to comply with the Volcker
rule.  Management actions that improve holding company liquidity
from currently estimated levels could support maintaining holding
company ratings at 'BBB-'.

Conversely, if the company does not sufficiently address, in
Fitch's opinion, contingent liquidity concerns at the holding
company, the Rating Watch Negative could be resolved with a
ratings downgrade.

In line with Fitch's criteria regarding holding company and bank
subsidiary equalization of ratings, Fitch may consider notching
down the holding company's IDRs reflecting the view that the
holding company financial flexibility has been limited and will
likely remain for a longer time horizon.

Fitch has placed these ratings on Rating Watch Negative:

First Niagara Financial Group, Inc

   -- Long-term Issuer Default Rating 'BBB-';
   -- Short-term IDR 'F3';
   -- Viability rating 'bbb-';
   -- Senior unsecured 'BBB-';
   -- Preferred stock 'B';
   -- Subordinated debt 'BB+';
   -- Support '5';
   -- Support Floor 'NF'.

Fitch has affirmed these ratings with a Stable Outlook:

First Niagara Bank

   -- Long-term deposits at 'BBB';
   -- Long-term IDR at 'BBB-';
   -- Viability at 'bbb-'
   -- Short-term deposits at 'F3';
   -- Short-term IDR at 'F3'.
   -- Support at '5';
   -- Support Floor at 'NF'.


GLYECO INC: To Work With Haldor to Develop Recycling Facilities
---------------------------------------------------------------
GlyEco, Inc., signed a non-binding Memorandum of Understanding
with Haldor Topsoe pursuant to which the two companies entered a
collaborative agreement to identify and develop waste glycol
recycling facilities internationally.

"I am extremely happy to welcome Haldor Topsoe to the GlyEco
team," stated John Lorenz, CEO of GlyEco.  "Haldor Topsoe is a
well respected firm with reported revenues of nearly $1 billion in
2013.  We share both a passion for science and a culture of
innovation, and our core values and dedication to sustainability
solutions are in alignment.  We intend to make those values the
foundation of a solid relationship."

"Together our organizations will combine our strengths to deliver
sustainable glycol solutions to the global market," Lorenz
continued.  "This is a huge break-through for glycol recycling.
Haldor Topsoe brings decades of experience in successfully
designing and building large chemical processing operations, and
they have a team of very experienced engineers located throughout
the world.  Together, we can accelerate the timeline to deliver
sustainable glycol solutions to un-served industries on a very
large scale.  Everyone benefits from this agreement."

Under the terms of the MOU, each company will focus on its core
competencies; Haldor Topsoe will leverage its significant
engineering resources and international customer relationships,
while GlyEco will leverage its proprietary glycol recycling
technology.

The two companies are jointly utilizing resources to identify
initial projects for development.  Once an initial glycol
recycling plant project has been identified, a binding agreement
is expected with additional agreements to follow tailored for each
future project.

HDGM ADVISORY: MISI Authorized to Enter Into Agreements With MT
---------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Indiana
granted, with changes as discussed on the record, HDGM Advisory
Services, LLC, et al.'s motion for an order authorizing HDG Mansur
Investment Services, Inc. to enter into agreements with MT
Acquisitions, LLC, according to the Minute Entry/Order entered by
the Court on October 15, 2014.

KFH Capital Investment Company K.S.C.C and Kuwait Finance House
Real Estate Company K.S.C.C. filed a limited objection to the
Motion asserting that the release language in the Termination
Agreements was overly broad.

In its response to KFH's objection, MISI explained that it filed
the Motion so as to enter into a Lease Termination Agreement and
Management Agreement Termination and, thereby, terminate the
obligations of, and release each of, MISI and MT under the Lease
and the Management Agreement.

MISI said it did not intend that the releases provided in the
Termination Agreements be any broader than that necessary to
effectuate a release under these two executory contracts so as to
reduce any further or other obligations of MISI thereunder and
avoid further incurrence of potential administrative claims while
preserving MISI's ability to sublease to, and collect rent, from a
third party tenant.  In fact, MISI pointed out, the release
language under the Management Agreement Termination was not so
broadly drafted, and was confined to claims arising under the
Management Agreement and the Premises, but the Lease Termination
Agreement inadvertently was not so limited.

                    About Intellicell Biosciences

Intellicell BioSciences, Inc., headquartered in New York, N.Y.,
was formed on Aug. 13, 2010, under the name "Regen Biosciences,
Inc." as a pioneering regenerative medicine company to develop and
commercialize regenerative medical technologies in large markets
with unmet clinical needs.  On Feb. 17, 2011, the company changed
its name from "Regen Biosciences, Inc." to "IntelliCell
BioSciences Inc".  To date, IntelliCell has developed proprietary
technologies that allow for the efficient and reproducible
separation of stromal vascular fraction (branded
"IntelliCell(TM)") containing adipose stem cells that can be
performed in tissue processing centers and in doctors' offices.

Intellicell Biosciences reported a net loss of $11.14 million on
$0 of total net revenues for the year ended Dec. 31, 2013, as
compared with a net loss of $4.15 million on $534,942 of total net
revenues during the prior year.

The Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2014, showed $3.34 million
in total assets, $15.64 million in total liabilities, all current,
and a $12.29 million total stockholders' deficit.

"The Company has incurred losses since inception resulting in an
accumulated deficit of $61,164,954 and a working capital deficit
of $15,319,535 as of June 30, 2014, respectively.  Further losses
are anticipated in the continued development of its business,
raising substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue
as a going concern.  The ability to continue as a going concern is
dependent upon the Company generating profitable operations in the
future and/or to obtain the necessary financing to meet its
obligations and repay its liabilities arising from normal business
operations when they come due.  Management intends to finance
operating costs over the next twelve months with existing cash on
hand and a private placement of common stock or other debt or
equity securities.  There can be no assurance that we will be able
to obtain further financing, do so on reasonable terms, or do so
on terms that would not substantially dilute our current
stockholders' equity interests in us.  If we are unable to raise
additional funds on a timely basis, or at all, we probably will
not be able to continue as a going concern," the Company stated in
the Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended June 30, 2014.


INTELLIPHARMACEUTICS INT'L: Gets FDA "Acceptable" Classification
----------------------------------------------------------------
The United States Food and Drug Administration has provided
Intellipharmaceutics International Inc. with written notification
that its Toronto, Canada, manufacturing facility has received an
"acceptable" classification.

The Company's Toronto premises comprise 25,000 sq. ft., including
management, R&D, manufacturing, quality control and drug product
release testing components.  The inspection of the manufacturing
facility was performed in May 2014.  Those inspections are carried
out on a regular basis by the FDA, and an "acceptable"
classification is necessary to permit the Company to be in a
position to receive final approvals for Abbreviated New Drug
Applications and for New Drug Applications, and to permit
manufacturing of drug products intended for commercial sales in
the United States after any such approvals.  No assurance can be
given as to whether or when the FDA will approve any
Intellipharmaceutics application for its product candidates, that
our facility will continue to satisfy the requirements of the FDA,
or that any of our product candidates will ever be successfully
commercialized.

This marks the second time that the facility has passed an FDA
inspection.  In a previous audit carried out by the FDA in July
2011, the facility was also classified as acceptable.

"We are pleased and proud to have again achieved an "acceptable"
classification for our facility," stated Dr. Isa Odidi, CEO and
co-chief scientific officer.  "The FDA facility audit process is
rigorous and exacting, and we believe the successful
classification is an indication that our unwavering commitment to
current good manufacturing practices (cGMP) is well worth the
effort."

LEHMAN BROTHERS: Asks Court to Extend Terms of Plan Trust
---------------------------------------------------------
Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. has filed a motion seeking
authority from Judge Shelley Chapman of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court
for the Southern District of New York to extend the term of the
trust that was created pursuant to its payout plan for another
three years.

The trust, which will terminate on Dec. 6, 2014, was created to
hold the new Lehman common stock that was issued after all the
company's common and preferred stock was cancelled as well as to
receive and distribute proceeds for the benefit of former Lehman
stockholders.  The plan trust also "preserves important tax
attributes of the Chapter 11 estates that ultimately benefit
creditors, fulfills certain securities laws obligations and
benefits former stockholders," according to the company's lawyer,
Jacqueline Marcus, Esq., at Weil Gotshal & Manges LLP, in New
York.

The motion is on Judge Chapman's calendar for November 7.

                    About Lehman Brothers

corporations, governmental units, institutional clients and
individuals worldwide.

Lehman Brothers filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy Sept. 15, 2008
(Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 08-13555).  Lehman's bankruptcy
petition disclosed US$639 billion in assets and US$613 billion in
debts, effectively making the firm's bankruptcy filing the
largest in U.S. history.  Several other affiliates followed
thereafter.

Affiliates Merit LLC, LB Somerset LLC and LB Preferred Somerset

District Court for the Southern District of New York, entered an
order commencing liquidation of Lehman Brothers, Inc., pursuant
to the provisions of the Securities Investor Protection Act (Case
No. 08-CIV-8119 (GEL)).  James W. Giddens has been appointed as
trustee for the SIPA liquidation of the business of LBI.

The Bankruptcy Court approved Barclays Bank Plc's purchase of
Lehman Brothers' North American investment banking and capital
markets operations and supporting infrastructure for US$1.75
billion.  Nomura Holdings Inc., the largest brokerage house in
Japan, purchased LBHI's operations in Europe for US$2 plus the
retention of most of employees.  Nomura also bought Lehman's
operations in the Asia Pacific for US$225 million.

Lehman emerged from bankruptcy protection on March 6, 2012, more
than three years after it filed the largest bankruptcy in U.S.
history.  The Chapter 11 plan for the Lehman companies other than
the broker was confirmed in December 2011.

Lehman made its first payment of $22.5 billion to creditors in
April 2012 and a second payment of $10.2 billion on Oct. 1.  A
third distribution is set for around March 30, 2013.  The
brokerage is yet to make a first distribution to non-customers.

LEHMAN BROTHERS: Opposes Bid to Increase Claims Reserve
-------------------------------------------------------
Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. is opposing an effort by U.S. Bank
NA and several other financial institutions to increase the amount
the defunct financial institution has set aside to settle the
banks' claims tied to mortgage loans sold by the company.

Lehman has only set aside $5 billion for the claims held by the
trustees administering residential mortgage-backed securities
trusts.  The trustees, which also include Deutsche Bank National
Trust Co., Law Debenture Trust Co. of New York and Wilmington
Trust, had said the reserve should be increased to $12.143
billion since a review of the mortgage loans shows that the
company's liability is much worse than its initial estimate.

In a court filing, a Lehman lawyer argued the trustees did not
provide proofs of their claims and that they "summarily" estimated
their claims at $12.143 billion based on a flawed expert report.

"Given that they have failed for seven years to abide by their
obligations, the RMBS trustees should not at this advanced stage
be permitted to disrupt the distribution of the Lehman estate,"
said Todd Cosenza, Esq., at Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP, in New
York.

In the same filing, Lehman proposed to implement a protocol, which
it said, would expeditiously resolve the trustees' claims.

The protocol requires the trustees to deliver to Lehman within 60
days all loan files.  Any claim not substantiated by the loan
files delivered within that period will be extinguished.

The U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Manhattan will hold a hearing on
Dec. 10.

LEHMAN BROTHERS: JPM Repo-Market Lawsuit Resumes
------------------------------------------------
Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. and J.P. Morgan & Co. are still
battling in a crisis-era lawsuit where Lehman alleged that the
bank improperly extracted billions in collateral just days before
its September 2008 bankruptcy filing.

Lawyers for Lehman and its creditors said J.P. Morgan used its
"life-or-death leverage" as Lehman's primary clearing bank to
force the company into handing over virtually all of its
remaining liquidity to "create an $8.6 billion slush fund," The
Wall Street Journal reported, citing a recent filing made with
the U.S. District Court in New York.

In its own filing, J.P. Morgan's lawyers said the Lehman account
was "a fable" and Lehman, following the holding company's
bankruptcy, tricked it into believing it would be repaid some $70
billion advanced to keep Lehman's broker-dealer business afloat
in the days surrounding the company's bankruptcy filing and the
sale of the business to Barclays Plc, according to Journal's
Oct. 17 report.

Lehman filed the lawsuit to recover billions of dollars that J.P.
Morgan allegedly seized as collateral.  J.P. Morgan, which served
as the company's main clearing bank in the 2008 financial crisis,
allegedly threatened to discontinue its services unless the
company posted excessive collateral.

The suit in district court is Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. v.
JPMorgan Chase Bank NA (In re Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc.),
11-6760, U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York
(Manhattan).

LEHMAN BROTHERS: 2nd Cir. Refuses to Hear Appeal in Barclays Suit
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Second Circuit declined to rehear Lehman Brothers Inc.
trustee's bid to reclaim $4 billion in collateral that was picked
up by Barclays Plc after the collapse of the brokerage's parent
company, according to a report by Law360.

To recall, a three-judge panel handed down a decision in August
that took away $4 billion the trustee was awarded by a bankruptcy
judge in a dispute with Barclays.

The panel ruled that the transfer of the cash or margin assets
was contemplated both by the purchase agreement and the
clarification letter, and that there was no material change from
the deal approved in bankruptcy court.

The appeal is Giddens v. Barclays Capital Inc. (In re Lehman
Brothers Holdings Inc.), 12-2933, U.S. Court of Appeals for the
Second Circuit (Manhattan).

LEHMAN BROTHERS: Seeks Approval to Settle Claims vs. Putnam
-----------------------------------------------------------
Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. has filed a motion seeking court
approval to resolve the claims of its special financing unit
against Putnam Structured Product Funding 2003-1 Ltd. tied to a
swap deal.

The claim stemmed from the early termination of Lehman's credit
derivative swap transaction with ALTA CDO SPC as a result of its
bankruptcy filing.

Under the swap deal, ALTA, a special purpose vehicle, sold
"credit protection" to Lehman's special financing unit on a
portfolio of diverse entities in exchange for periodic premium
payments.

ALTA used the money it received from Lehman's financing unit to
pay the interest of investors in notes it issued to those
investors including Putnam, according to court filings.

Under the settlement, Lehman's special financing unit will
receive full payment for its claims from U.S. Bank National
Association, the administrator of the trust that was created for
the notes issued to Putnam.  In return, the company agreed to
drop any other claim it asserts against Putnam and U.S. Bank tied
to the notes.

Lehman did not disclose in court filings how much its special
financing unit will receive from U.S. Bank as settlement.

The U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Manhattan will hold a hearing on
Nov. 7 to consider approval of the settlement.  Objections are
due by Oct. 31.

LEHMAN BROTHERS: Giants Insists Swap Claims Valid
-------------------------------------------------
Giants Stadium, LLC, asked the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Manhattan
to overrule Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc.'s objection to its
claims tied to a derivatives swap deal.

In a court filing, Giants Stadium denied allegations it breached
the swap agreement by denying Lehman's special financing unit its
right to obtain quotations from broker-dealers to value the swaps
when the stadium company terminated the swap deal.

According to Giants Stadium, the Lehman subsidiary was given the
opportunity to select and reach out to broker-dealers to
calculate the loss under the swap deal but it refused to do so in
violation of the agreement.

The stadium company also denied it breached the swap deal by not
getting Lehman's consent before amending a provision of the
indenture requiring that a minimum percentage of the auction-rate
securities be hedged at different times.

Giants Stadium argued Lehman had no right to block the amendment
by not consenting to it since the minimum hedging requirement was
insisted by and is for the benefit of bond holders and insurers.

The swap deal was intended to hedge interest rate risk on
securities initially issued in auction rate form by Giants
Stadium and underwritten by Lehman's brokerage.

Giants Stadium holds two claims against Lehman and its special
financing unit.  Each claim seeks to recover $301 million
purportedly due under the swap deal and a guaranty executed by
Lehman.

LEVI STRAUSS: Fitch Affirms 'BB' IDR & Alters Outlook to Positive
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed its Issuer Default Rating (IDR) on Levi
Strauss & Co. (Levi) at 'BB' and revised the Rating Outlook to
Positive from Stable.  In addition, Fitch has affirmed its rating
on Levi's secured bank credit facility at 'BB+' and senior
unsecured notes at 'BB-'.  Levi had $1.4 billion of debt
outstanding as of Aug. 24, 2014.

Key Rating Drivers

While Levi's business trends are currently soft, the Outlook
revision to Positive reflects Fitch's view that Levi will begin to
generate EBITDA growth in fiscal 2015 as some of the benefits from
its global productivity initiative flow to the bottom line.  In
addition to taking significant cost out of the business, Levi's
management is also committed to reducing debt levels and
strengthening its balance sheet.  These factors are expected by
Fitch to drive adjusted leverage toward the mid-3x range over the
next two years from 4.1x currently.  Fitch also expects FCF will
be positive in the range of $200 million annually beginning in
fiscal 2015 (ending November).  The rating continues to reflect
Levi's well-known brands, strong market shares, and geographic
diversity, as well as the challenging consumer environment
pressuring top line performance.

Levi's revenues declined 0.1% on a constant currency basis in the
nine months ended Aug. 24 2014, following a 1.8% constant currency
growth in fiscal 2013 (ended November).  This reflects sales
declines in the Americas region (61% of 2013 revenues), where
growth in retail and Levi's men's business was offset by declines
in the women's business at wholesale.  These declines were partly
offset by growth in Europe (24% of 2013 revenues) and Asia (16% of
2013 revenues).  Fitch projects consolidated sales will be flat to
up in the low single digit range over the next 24 months, and will
continue to be constrained by the difficult consumer environment
globally.

Levi's EBITDA margin was 11.4% in the 12 months ended Aug. 24,
2014 compared with 12.6% in 2013, due to excess inventory and the
promotional selling environment.  In the beginning of 2014, Levi's
rolled out a restructuring initiative where actions taken to date
are expected to produce annual net savings of $100-125 million.
Fitch believes that EBITDA will continue to be constrained over
the near term as the company works down excess inventories, but
that it will move higher over the next 24 months to over $600
million from $531 million in the LTM ended Aug. 24, 2014, as a
portion of the cost savings flow to the bottom line.

Leverage (adjusted debt/EBITDAR) was steady at 4.1x at August 2014
compared with 4.0x at fiscal year-end 2013, reflecting modest
EBITDA contraction as well as $120 million of debt reduction.  The
company recently announced its intent to fully redeem the
remaining $199 million of 7.75% Euro notes due November 2018 with
cash flow and revolver borrowings.  As a result, Fitch expects
total debt reduction to approach $300 million in 2014 and that
management will continue to reduce debt levels with free cash flow
in 2015-2016.  Fitch therefore expects leverage will improve
toward the mid-3x range over the next two years.

Liquidity is supported by cash of $367 million (roughly two-thirds
of which is held overseas) and availability of $606 million as of
Aug. 24, 2014 on an $850 million credit facility that expires in
March 2019.  The facility is secured by North American
inventories, receivables, and the U.S. Levi trademark, with a
total borrowing base of $757 million.  There were $90 million of
borrowings and $61 million of LCs outstanding against the facility
at quarter-end.

The 'BB+' rating of the $850 million secured revolving credit
facility reflects its secured position in the capital structure
and upstream guarantees from the domestic operating companies.

RATING SENSITIVITIES

Factors that could individually or collectively lead to a positive
rating action include:

   -- EBITDA margins begin a sustained recovery in 2015;
   -- FCF of $200 million plus annually, permitting ongoing debt
      reduction;
   -- Adjusted financial leverage improves to the mid-3x range.

Factors that could individually or collectively lead to a negative
rating action include:

   -- EBITDA margins remain under pressure longer-term;
   -- Sales trends remain soft;
   -- Adjusted financial leverage moves above the mid-4x range.

Fitch has affirmed these ratings:

Levi Strauss & Co.

   -- IDR at 'BB-';
   -- $850 million secured revolving credit facility at 'BB+';
   -- Senior unsecured notes at 'BB-'.

The Rating Outlook is revised to Positive from Stable.

M/I HOMES: Moody's Rates New $350MM Unsecured Notes 'B1'
--------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service affirmed M/I Homes, Inc.'s Corporate
Family Rating at B2 and Probability of Default Rating at B2-PD.
Concurrently, Moody's assigned a B1 rating to the company's
proposed $350 million senior unsecured note issuance that is
expected to be composed of $200 million senior unsecured notes due
in 2022 and $150 million senior unsecured notes due in 2019.
Moody's affirmed the senior subordinated convertible notes at
Caa1. Additionally, the rating on the Series A preferred shares
was affirmed at Caa1 and Speculative-Grade Liquidity (SGL) was
affirmed at SGL-2. The rating outlook is stable.

M/I Homes is expected to use a significant amount of the net
proceeds from the proposed $350 million senior unsecured note
offering to fund the purchase of the $230 million existing senior
unsecured notes due 2018.

The following rating actions were taken:

  Corporate Family Rating, affirmed at B2;

  Probability of Default Rating, affirmed at B2-PD;

  Proposed $150 million senior unsecured notes, assigned B1
  (LGD3);

  Proposed $200 million senior unsecured notes, assigned B1
  (LGD3);

  $86 million 3% senior subordinate convertible senior notes,
  affirmed at Caa1 (LGD6);

  $58 million 3.25% senior subordinate convertible notes,
  affirmed at Caa1 (LGD6);

  $48 million 9.75% series A preferred shares, affirmed at Caa1
  (LGD6);

  Speculative-Grade Liquidity Rating, affirmed at SGL-2;

The ratings outlook is stable.

The ratings on the existing senior unsecured notes will be
withdrawn at the close of the transaction.

Ratings Rationale

The B2 Corporate Family Rating reflects M/I Homes' relatively
small size, geographic concentration, and projected negative free
cash flow generation over the next 12-18 months as the company
continues to purchase land/lots.

At the same time, M/I Homes' B2 Corporate Family Rating is
supported by its disciplined operating strategy and by growing
profitability on a net income basis. Further, the rating benefits
from the company's conservative balance sheet management despite
the increase in pro forma debt leverage of just above 50%. Moody's
projects the company's debt leverage to decline below 45% in the
next 2 years. Additionally, the rating incorporates Moody's view
that favorable homebuilding industry conditions, including growing
new orders, backlog and home pricing, will lead to further growth
in revenues and net worth and improvement in credit metrics.

The SGL-2 Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating reflects Moody's
expectation that M/I Homes' liquidity profile will remain good
over the next 12 months. Moody's projects that the company will
utilize its $300 million unsecured revolving credit facility for
opportunistic land purchases.

The stable rating outlook reflects an expectation that the company
will continue to increase revenue generation in line with the rest
of the industry and improves its net worth, gross margins, and
other credit metrics over the next one to two years. The stable
outlook also considers Moody's expectation that debt to
capitalization will remain about 45%.

The ratings could be upgraded if homebuilding debt leverage
declines below 40% on a sustained basis with further improvement
in other key credit metrics such as interest coverage and gross
margin.

The ratings could be downgraded if the company's liquidity
position deteriorates, net income turns negative, or if adjusted
homebuilding debt leverage increases above 60%.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Global
Homebuilding Industry published in March 2009. Other methodologies
used include Loss Given Default for Speculative-Grade Non-
Financial Companies in the U.S., Canada and EMEA published in June
2009.

Headquartered in Columbus, Ohio, and begun in 1976, M/I Homes,
Inc. sells homes under the trade names M/I Homes, Showcase
Collection (exclusively by M/I Homes) and Triumph Homes, with
homebuilding operations located in Columbus and Cincinnati, Ohio;
Indianapolis, Indiana; Chicago, Illinois; Tampa and Orlando,
Florida; Charlotte and Raleigh, North Carolina; the Virginia and
Maryland suburbs of Washington, D.C; and Austin, Dallas/Fort
Worth, Houston and San Antonio, Texas.


MACKEYSER HOLDINGS: Essilor Objects to Deal With Secured Lenders
----------------------------------------------------------------
Essilor of America, Inc., asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Delaware not to approve the proposed settlement
entered into by Mackeyser Holdings, LLC and its affiliated debtors
and the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors, and certain of
the Debtors' secured lenders -- Health Evolution Partners Fund I,
L.P. and Series F of Health Evolution Partners Co-Invest, LLC.

Essilor is one of MacKeyser's secured lenders.

The Settlement should be denied or alternatively, modified to
comport with applicable rules and precedent, Essilor tells the
Court.  Essilor contends that the proposed settlement between the
Settling Parties fails to demonstrate why it is "fair and
equitable" under the requirements enunciated by the Third Circuit.

Essilor argues that the proposed Settlement is overbroad in scope.
Essilor says that the motion seeking approval of the settlement
seeks relief far beyond a resolution of disputes between the
Settling Parties.  Essilor also contends that under the proposed
settlement, HEP is paid over $600,000 immediately while the
Debtors' other secured and unsecured creditors, like Essilor, are
forced to wait indefinitely for payments on their claims.

              Debtors and Creditors Committee Reply

Since being outbid at the auction for the Debtors' Eye Gallery
stores, Essilor has filed two motions, accompanied by two
emergency motions to shorten notice, in connection with its
efforts to be immediately repaid on account of its purportedly
secured claim, the Debtors and Committee say.  They note that both
motions to shorten were denied (though only after estate resources
were expended to quickly draft objections), while Essilor's other
motions were adjourned after the Settling Parties provided Essilor
with the results of their preliminary investigation into potential
wrongdoing by Essilor.

Now, having failed in its attempt to obtain immediate repayment,
Essilor has objected to the Settlement, thereby, continuing its
pattern of wasteful and unnecessary motion practice, the Debtors
and Committee tell the Court.  They contend that Essilor finds
ground for objection only by ignoring numerous benefits arising
from the Settlement, and instead raising a number of technical
issues that do not even apply to Essilor while simultaneously
arguing that the they have not sufficiently demonstrated that the
Settlement is fair and equitable.

The Debtors and Committee assert that they have more than met
their burden under Rule 9019 of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy
Procedure.  They point out that the Objection is nothing more than
a continuation of Essilor's scorched earth approach to these
cases, and an attempt to stand in the way of the Settlement as
part of its litigation strategy.

The Debtors argue that the Settlement is in their best interests
and all of their creditors.  The Debtors assert that absence of
the Settlement, the bankruptcy estates would lack access to the
cash necessary to continue to conduct an orderly wind down that
maximizes value.  Hence, the Debtors ask the Court to approve the
Settlement.

Ratings Rationale

New Media General's B1 corporate family rating reflects Media
General's pending merger with LIN resulting in expanded coverage
of US households as well as favorable geographic and network
diversification. Pro forma for the merger and announced
transactions, leverage will remain high with 2-year average debt-
to-EBITDA of 5.3x estimated for September 30, 2014 (including
Moody's standard adjustments). Weak demand for national
advertising experienced by most broadcasters in 2Q14 caused Media
General's core advertising revenue to increase less than 1% for
the half of 2014. For the second half of 2014, Moody's expect
Media General to generate good free cash flow given significant
political ad demand, providing the ability to repay debt and
improve financial credit metrics. Typical of television
broadcasters, ratings are pressured by the company's vulnerability
to cyclical advertising downturns and increasing media
fragmentation. Ratings are supported by the company's
significantly increased scale and consistent #1 or #2 revenue
rankings in 83% of its existing and soon-to-be-added markets,
several of which benefit from traditionally strong political
advertising demand. Ratings are also supported by Media General's
good local news programs and the addition of LIN's digital
operations. Moody's believe the scale provided by the merger of
Media General and LIN Media will help the company achieve
operating efficiencies and better position the company to
negotiate higher retransmission fees with its cable, satellite and
telco distributors to offset expected increases in reverse
compensation paid to networks. Post merger, Moody's expect the
company to generate annual EBITDA of more than $475 million (2-
year average) resulting in high single-digit percentage free-cash
flow-to-debt ratios and the ability to improve leverage absent
debt financed acquisitions. Since the sale of its newspaper
operations two years ago and merging with Young Broadcasting in
2013, the company has successfully executed its strategy to
transition into a pure-play broadcaster and has performed in line
with its initial revenue and EBITDA plan. Despite challenges
related to assimilating the two broadcasters, Moody's believes
management will be successful in realizing most of its planned
synergies totaling $70 million given Media General's success with
Young Broadcasting and given the majority of expected benefits
comes from readily achievable elimination of redundant costs and
an uplift in retransmission fees. Moody's expect the company to
maintain good liquidity leading up to the closing of the LIN
merger expected by the end of 2014 given significant cash inflows
from political ad demand through the beginning of November.

The stable rating outlook reflects Moody's view that, pro forma
for announced transactions and despite weak demand for national
advertising, growth in core ad sales will be in the low single
digit percentage range over the next 12 months with total revenue
increasing by more than 15% on a same store basis in FY2014 due to
significant political advertising largely in the second half of
the year as well as increasing retransmission fees. The outlook
does not incorporate additional debt financed acquisitions that
would meaningfully increase leverage ratios. Media General's
ratings could be downgraded if revenue or EBITDA deteriorate on a
same station basis due to economic weakness or underperformance in
one or more key markets, or if debt financed transactions
including distribution or additional acquisitions, result in 2-
year average debt-to-EBITDA ratios being sustained above 5.50x
(including Moody's standard adjustments) post closing of the
merger or 2-year average free cash flow-to-debt ratios falling
below 5%. Given the potential for additional debt financed
acquisitions as the industry consolidates, we are not likely to
consider an upgrade of ratings until the company demonstrates a
track record for maintaining 2-year average debt-to-EBITDA
leverage below 4.50x with minimum 2-year average free cash flow-
to-debt ratios in the high single digit percentage range.
Liquidity would also need to remain good with comfortable EBITDA
cushion to financial covenants and Moody's would need to be
assured that management would maintain operating and financial
policies that would be consistent with the higher rating.

Media General, headquartered in Richmond, VA, is a leading
television broadcaster and is expected to own, operate or service
71 network affiliated stations and associated digital properties
across 48 markets covering 24% of U.S. television households,
post-closing of the pending merger with LIN and announced
transactions. Network affiliations will include 22 CBS stations,
14 NBC, 12 ABC, 8 FOX, 7 CW, and 7 MNT. The company is publicly
traded and, as part of the LIN merger, Media General will form a
new holding company, New Media General, through which existing
Media General shareholders will own roughly 67% of the new holding
company with LIN shareholders owning the remaining 33%. Current
owners of Media General include Standard General, Oppenheimer,
Gabelli, and Highland Capital, with the remainder being widely
held. Average 2012 and 2013 revenue pro forma for announced
transactions is $1.2 billion.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Global
Broadcast and Advertising Related Industries Methodology published
in May 2012. Other methodologies used include Loss Given Default
for Speculative-Grade Non-Financial Companies in the U.S., Canada
and EMEA published in June 2009.

                     About Miller Auto Parts

in Atlanta, Georgia and have distribution operations in the
southeast, northeast and on-line.  The Southeastern distribution
center is located in Norcross, Georgia and supports nine satellite
centers across the state and supplies parts to key fleet customers
across the country.

Miller Auto Parts and its three subsidiaries sought Chapter 11
bankruptcy protection (Bankr. N.D. Ga.) on Sept. 15, 2014.  The
Debtors have sought joint administration under Lead Case No. 14-
68113.  The cases are assigned to Judge Mary Grace Diehl.

The Debtors have tapped Scroggins & Williamson as counsel and
Logan & Co. as claims and noticing agent.

The U.S. Trustee for Region 21 appointed three creditors of Miller
Auto Parts & Supply Company Inc. to serve on the official
committee of unsecured creditors.  The Committee selected Kane
Russell Coleman & Logan as its counsel.


MILLER AUTOMOTIVE: Needler Suspended, Directed to Disgorge Fees
---------------------------------------------------------------
Missouri Bankruptcy Judge Dennis R. Dow denied the final fee
application filed by William L. Needler and Associates, Ltd.,
counsel to Miller Automotive Group, Inc., a dealer of Chrysler
vehicles.

Judge Dow said William Needler did not meet his burden of proving
that the compensation he requested was reasonable.  To the
contrary, the evidence showed that his services provided no value
to the Debtor's estate and that Mr. Needler knew, or should have
known, that they were not reasonably likely to do so.

Judge Dow, instead, granted the request by the United States
Trustee for disgorgement of fees and imposition of sanctions.  The
Court noted that Mr. Needler failed to properly disclose and
identify the source of his Retainer as required by the Bankruptcy
Code and Rules.  As a result, the Court directed Mr. Needler to
disgorge $6,687 of the Retainer less fees to the U.S. Trustee.

The Court also imposed the sanction of suspension on Mr. Needler.
Effective immediately, Mr. Needler is suspended indefinitely from
the privilege to practice before the United States Bankruptcy
Court for the Western District of Missouri.  The purpose of this
non-monetary sanction is to deter future misconduct on the part of
Needler and others similarly situated.

Judge Dow noted that about six months ago, Mr. Needler appeared
before another Bankruptcy Judge in this District.  In In re Metten
Management Innovation, LLC, Case No. 13-50244, Mr. Needler failed
to disclose the source of his retainer, filed documents and
pleadings containing errors and inconsistencies, failed to comply
with Local Rules regarding required verifications, used
questionable practices to obtain his client's signature on
pleadings, filed a plan that was "patently unconfirmable" and a
disclosure statement that was deficient, was unavailable for
several hearings, willfully failed to amend certain pleadings
despite agreeing to do so in open court, displayed a "cavalier"
attitude, and filed cases that "should never have been filed."
Judge Cynthia Norton denied his application for employment nunc
pro tunc, denied his application for compensation, and ordered
Needler to disgorge the sum of $7,574 to the trustee.

Miller Automotive Group Inc. -- d/b/a Miller Chrysler Dodge, d/b/a
Miller Chrysler Dodge Jeep, Inc. -- filed a Chapter 11 petition
(Bankr. W.D. Mo. Case No. 13-20027) on Jan. 11, 2013.

The Debtor filed a Chapter 11 Plan shortly after the petition
date, but the Court was unable to consider it because it lacked a
disclosure statement.  The Debtor also filed a motion to use cash
collateral; the Court denied it without prejudice primarily on the
grounds that the financial information on which the Cash
Collateral Motion was based was unreliable. Immediately after the
decision was handed down, Needler filed an Emergency Motion to
Withdraw the Reference to the United States District Court. That
motion was denied.

In February 2013, the two largest creditors of the Debtor filed
motions for relief from the automatic stay: Ally Financial Inc. to
foreclose its security interest against the Debtor's vehicles and
other collateral, and Chrysler Group LLC ") to terminate certain
sales and service agreements.  Both motions were set for hearing,
but in the interim, the Debtor filed its motion to dismiss the
case. Ally's motion was subsequently granted and Chrysler's was
granted in part.

An Order granting the dismissal motion was entered in April 2013,
and the case was closed.  The U.S. Trustee sought to reopen the
case to seek a determination of the reasonableness of the Debtor's
attorney's fees, and the motion to reopen was granted.  Needler's
fee application followed.

MISSISSIPPI PHOSPHATES: Proposes $10-Mil. of DIP Financing
----------------------------------------------------------
Mississippi Phosphates Corporation and its affiliated debtor seek
approval from the bankruptcy court to incur postpetition senior
secured super-priority indebtedness of up to $10 million from
certain of its prepetition lenders.  The Debtors also ask the
Court to approve the use of cash collateral of the prepetition
lenders and approve the agreed adequate protection for the use of
the lenders' cash collateral.

As of the Petition Date, the Debtors have $58.2 million in
principal and interest outstanding under an Amended and Restated
Facility with lenders led by STUW LLC, as administrative agent.
The obligations under are secured by a first-priority, senior lien
and security interest on certain real and personal property assets
of each of the debtors and PHI, as guarantor.

The salient terms of the DIP facility are:

   -- The Debtors obtain from the DIP Lenders loan and credit
advances in an aggregate principal sum of (i) up to $5 million
upon entry of an Interim DIP Order and (ii) following entry of a
final order approving the DIP financing, up to a total sum of $5
million plus accrued interest on the aggregate principal amount
and fees and expenses on a revolving basis.

   -- The obligations of the Debtors under the DIP Facility will
be secured by a first-priority priming lien on any and all assets
of the Debtors, will be entitled to exclusive superpriority
administrative expense status, and will be secured by a first-
priority perfected security interest in all of the Debtors' and
PHI's unencumbered assets.

    -- The superpriority claims and liens granted to the DIP
Lenders or the DIP Agent will be subject to a carve-out for (a)
unpaid fees of the Clerk of Court and the United States Trustee;
(b) the fees and expenses incurred by any Chapter 7 trustee and
any professionals retained by the trustee, in an aggregate amount
not to exceed $50,000; (c) all unpaid fees and expenses of
professionals retained by the Debtors or the Committee incurred
prior to a Termination Event; and (d) following a Termination
Event, the payment of reasonable fees of Chapter 11 professionals
in an aggregate amount not to exceed $200,000.

    -- The Interim DIP Order provides for the Debtors to stipulate
to the liens and claims of the prepetition lenders and a 60-day
day period for parties-in-interest to challenge the Debtors'
stipulations.

   -- The Prepetition Lenders have agreed to the Debtors' use of
cash collateral in exchange for a superpriority claim, junior to
the superpriority claim of the DIP Lenders; and required the
Debtors to stipulate to the validity, enforceability and priority
of their repetition claims and liens.

                             About MPC

Mississippi Phosphates Corporation is a major United States
producer and marketer of diammonium phosphate ("DAP"), one of the
most common types of phosphate fertilizer.  MPC, which was formed
as a Delaware corporation in October 1990, owns a DAP facility in
Pascagoula, Mississippi, which was acquired from Nu-South, Inc. in
its 1990 bankruptcy.  Phosphate rock, the primary raw material
used in the production of DAP, is being supplied by OCP S.A., a
corporation owned by the Kingdom of Morocco.

The parent, Phosphate Holdings, Inc., was formed in December 2004
in connection with the bankruptcy reorganization of MPC and its
then-parent Mississippi Chemical Corporation, the first fertilizer
cooperative in the United States.

As of Oct. 27, 2014, MPC has a work force of 250 employees, broken
into 224 regular employees and 26 "nested" third-party contract
employees.

MPC and its subsidiaries, namely Ammonia Tank Subsidiary, Inc.,
and Sulfuric Acid Tanks Subsidiary, Inc., sought Chapter 11
bankruptcy protection (Bankr. S.D. Miss. Lead Case No. 14-51667)
on Oct. 27, 2014.  Judge Katharine M. Samson is assigned to the
cases.

Mississippi Phosphates estimated $100 million to $500 million in
both assets and liabilities.  Affiliates Ammonia Tank and Sulfuric
Acid Tanks each estimated $1 million to $10 million in both assets
and liabilities.

The Debtors have tapped Stephen W. Rosenblatt, Esq., at Butler
Snow LLP as counsel.


MISSISSIPPI PHOSPHATES: Files for Ch. 11 With Plans to Sell
-----------------------------------------------------------
Mississippi Phosphates Corporation, the DAP fertilizer producer
that's facing a liquidity crisis, sought bankruptcy protection
just a week after a potential buyer backed out from talks to
purchase the company.

Despite obtaining financing of $49 million during the past year,
the Company said it has not been able to generate sufficient cash
to fund its operations and address ongoing environmental
requirements.

On Sept. 16, 2014, a waste heat boiler failed in one of the
sulfuric acid plants.  This boiler failure resulted in reduced DAP
production of 1,000 tons per day, which caused the Company to
incur additional expenses in the form of an unplanned cash outlay
for repairs, as well as lost revenues from the lowered DAP
production.  This loss of revenue from the reduced DAP production,
combined with increased repair and maintenance costs, has created
a cash shortfall that could not be remedied by increased
production levels at the facility's current capacity.  The Company
estimated that it needed at least $14 million to address the
immediate cash shortfall and in order to properly sustain business
operations through March 31, 2015.

To address its capital needs, the investment banking firm of
Sandler O'Neill + Partners, L.P. was retained earlier this year to
seek to bring in additional capital or identify a buyer or a joint
venture partner to avert the liquidity crisis the Company was
facing.  Sandler O'Neill identified several prospects, and
discussions with one prospect progressed earlier this month to
that potential buyer's completing its initial due diligence and
even exchanging drafts of a Letter of Intent with the Company's
professionals.  Unfortunately, on Oct. 19, 2014, that candidate
notified the Company that it was withdrawing from the process.

The Debtors have arranged postpetition financing that would allow
them to operate in the ordinary course of business to produce and
sell DAP.  The Debtors intend to use existing phosphorus rock
inventory and buy other necessary product to produce the DAP
through Nov. 30 2014, pursuant to a budget generated by the
Debtors and approved by the lenders.

Although they have not yet reached a deal with a buyer, the
Debtors said that they intend to pursue an orderly sale process.
According to a court filing, the Debtors anticipate filing a
motion to establish certain sales procedures and to authorize the
sale of substantially all of the Debtors' assets.

                   Prepetition Capital Structure

As of the Petition Date, the Debtors have $58.2 million in
principal and interest outstanding under an Amended and Restated
Facility with lenders led by STUW LLC, as administrative agent.
The obligations under are secured by a first-priority, senior lien
and security interest on certain real and personal property assets
of each of the debtors and PHI, as guarantor.

The Debtors also owe OCP S.A. $4.7 million pursuant to a phosphate
rock supply agreement that expires Dec. 31, 2014.

The Debtors have made quarterly contributions of $0.2 million into
an interest-bearing trust fund for closure, post-closure care and
related water treatment costs of the East gypsum disposal
facility, as required by the Mississippi Department of
Environmental Quality.  According to the Debtors, these payments
must continue until the funds in the trust, including earnings
from trust assets, are sufficient to cover the estimated costs of
closure at the completion of the disposal facility's useful life
and the post-closure costs for water treatment and leachate.

                         First Day Motions

The Debtors on the Petition Date filed motions to:

   -- direct joint administration of the Chapter 11 cases of MPC
and its subsidiaries;

   -- use cash collateral and access postpetition financing;

   -- pay certain prepetition employee obligations;

   -- maintain their existing cash management system; and

   -- prohibit utilities from discontinuing service.

MRIYA AGRO: Presents Restructuring Plan to Creditors
----------------------------------------------------
Reference is made to the notices to Noteholders dated 1 and 13
August 2014, 12, 19 and 23 September 2014 and 14 October 2014 in
which the Issuer provided to Noteholders certain information
concerning the financial condition of Mriya Agro Holding Public
Limited and its subsidiaries.  This is an update to the
Previous Notices.  Capitalized terms used and not defined in this
notice shall have the meanings set out in the Previous Notices.

                     Meeting with Creditors

At the meeting with creditors on Oct. 24, 2014 in Kiev Mriya
emphasized its commitment to a successful consensual
restructuring.  To that end, Mriya set out key principles for such
a restructuring.  Mriya also presented the financial model which
Mriya has prepared.  The Strategic Model covers the period 2014-
2024 and is intended to assist the negotiations with creditors.

Mriya requested that all creditors, including bank lenders and
Noteholders, give immediate consideration to the Restructuring
Principles and that they work with Mriya to develop the detail of
the Restructuring Principles with a view to agreeing as soon as
possible a roadmap for the successful restructuring.

A copy of the presentation at the meeting with creditors is
available in the dataroom which has been established by Mriya as
previously notified to Noteholders.

Mriya Agro Holding Plc is a Ukraine-based agricultural producer.

                         *     *     *

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter-Europe on Aug. 7,
2014, Fitch Ratings downgraded Ukraine-based agricultural
producer Mriya Agro Holding Public Limited's Long-term foreign
currency Issuer Default Rating (IDR) to 'C' from 'CCC'.  Fitch
said the downgrade reflects substantial uncertainties related to
Mriya's announced balance sheet restructuring plans.  The absence
of information regarding the magnitude of Mriya's failure to make
interest and amortization payments on certain of its debt
obligations and hence the likelihood that cross-default could be
triggered earlier than expected, adds even more uncertainty,
according to Fitch.


NASSAU TOWER: Court Directs Payment of US Trustee's Fees
--------------------------------------------------------
Bankruptcy Judge Michael B. Kaplan granted the U.S. Trustee's
motion for an order compelling the payment of U.S. Trustee fees
pursuant to 28 U.S.C. Sec. 1930(a)(6) in the Chapter 11 case of
Nassau Tower Realty, LLC.

The Debtor filed a Plan of Reorganization dated Sept. 27, 2013,
that allows the Debtor to reorganize by continuing to operate, to
liquidate by selling assets of the estate, or a combination of
both.

On Sept. 18, 2014, the Court entered an Order confirming the
Debtor's second modified Chapter 11 plan.

Prior to confirmation of the Plan, on June 2, 2014, the U.S.
Trustee filed the Motion, seeking to assess the Debtor quarterly
fees for the third quarter of 2013, the fourth quarter of 2013,
and the first quarter of 2014, for a total of $21,506.26. The
Debtor objected to the requested fees, and the parties entered
into a briefing schedule.  So that the Debtor could proceed to
confirmation, the Debtor agreed to escrow the requested fees,
which are currently being held by the Debtor's counsel.

A copy of the Court's October 27, 2014 Memorandum of Law is
available at http://is.gd/mcetRCfrom Leagle.com.

NEOVIA LOGISTICS: Moody's Affirms B3 Corporate Family Rating
------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has affirmed the ratings of Neovia
Logistics Intermediate Holdings, LLC ("Neovia"), including the B3
Corporate Family Rating ("CFR"), the B2 rating of the $450 million
senior secured notes due 2020 and the Caa2 rating of the $125
million senior unsecured PIK notes due 2018, following the
commencement of consent solicitations in connection with the sale
of Neovia to an affiliate of Goldman Sachs & Co. and Rhone Capital
L.L.C. The B3 CFR of Neovia reflects the company's substantial
amount of debt and the adverse effect on profits of continuing
carve-out expenses, balanced by the relatively high margins of its
spare parts logistics business. The ratings outlook is stable.

Ratings Rationale

The ratings of Neovia are affirmed because there will be no
material change to the company's capital structure assuming the
company successfully obtains the requisite consents from current
note holders in relation to the change-of-control provisions of
the senior secured notes due 2020 and the senior unsecured PIK
notes due 2018. The ratings reflect the company's substantial
amount of debt following the carve-out from Caterpillar Inc. in
2012 and the issuance of senior unsecured PIK notes shortly
thereafter to fund a distribution to shareholders. Taken together
with adjustments for unfunded pension obligations and operating
leases, Moody's calculates total debt at almost $1.3 billion as of
June 30, 2014, resulting in Debt to EBITDA of 7.5 times, which is
high for the B3 rating category. Debt to EBITDA would be
approximately 6.9 times if the rental expenses of the company's
cash and non-cash building lease obligations had been accounted
for as operating leases for financial reporting purposes and,
consequently, adjusted in accordance with Moody's lease adjustment
methodology. The ratings also consider the adverse impact on
profits of the significant costs that the company incurs in
connection with the process of becoming a standalone company. To
date, nearly $100 million has been spent, based on management's
estimates, more than 50% of which on establishing a new,
outsourced IT infrastructure and the migration of applications and
data to this new platform.

The company's high leverage and costly carve-out process are
balanced against operating margins of Neovia's service parts
logistics business that compare favorably against those of other
rated logistics companies. Excluding carve-out expenses, Moody's
expects (adjusted) operating margins of at least 12% in 2015. In
addition, the service parts logistics business creates entrenched
relationships with customers, which has resulted in long-term
relationships with some of the company's largest clients.

Moody's considers Neovia's liquidity adequate, taking into account
the company's intention to repay approximately $50 million of the
amount outstanding under its $75 million revolving credit facility
upon closing of the sale of the company, using additional capital
from its new owners.

The senior secured notes due 2020 are rated B2, one notch above
the B3 CFR, reflecting the more senior claim of these notes
relative to the unsecured obligations in the company's Loss Given
Default ("LGD") analysis, primarily pension and lease obligations
as well as the $125 million senior unsecured PIK notes due 2018.
However, the notes rank more junior to the $75 million senior
secured revolving credit facility due the first pay-out provision
of this facility. The senior unsecured PIK notes are rated Caa2 as
these notes rank junior to any other obligation in the LGD
analysis given the structural subordination of the PIK notes.

The ratings outlook is stable. The outlook is predicated on
Moody's expectation that Neovia's liquidity position improves in
the near term following repayment of approximately $50 million of
the amount outstanding under the $75 million revolving credit
facility. The stable outlook also anticipates the completion of
Neovia's carve-out process early 2015, which should materially
improve the company's profits and reduce leverage to levels that
are more consistent with the B3 rating category.

Ratings could be revised downward if the company fails to improve
its operating performance and cash flow generation following
completion of its transition to a standalone company, or if the
remaining carve-out expenses to complete this process were to
exceed the amount currently anticipated. There could also be
pressure if Neovia undertakes additional debt-funded acquisitions
or additional distributions to its shareholders in the near-term,
resulting in further weakening of credit metrics. Specifically, a
downgrade could be warranted if EBIT to Interest were sustained
below 1.0 time, FFO to Debt were sustained below 6.5% or Debt to
EBITDA were to remain above 7.0 times for a prolonged period
(calculated including cash and non-cash building lease obligations
as reported).

A rating upgrade could be considered if operating improvements or
de-leveraging would result in Debt to EBITDA of less than 5.5
times and EBIT to Interest of at least 1.5 times, along with
positive free cash flow generation to bolster liquidity.

NEOVIA LOGISTICS: S&P Affirms 'B' Corp. Credit Rating
-----------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services affirmed its ratings, including
the 'B' corporate credit rating, on Neovia Logistics LLC.  The
outlook on the corporate credit rating remains stable.

"The affirmation reflects our view that the change in ownership
does not materially affect the company's business or financial
risk profile," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Lisa Jenkins.
"It also reflects our expectation that the credit metrics will
improve over the next 12 months from current levels, which are
weaker than we believe appropriate for the rating."  The weakness
is primarily due to Neovia's significant spending over the past
two years to become an independent company following its spinoff
from Caterpillar.  Although the company will continue to make
minor investments over the next two quarters related to this, it
has already made the majority of the related spending; and S&P
expects its operating performance to improve materially in the
coming year.

"The stable outlook reflects our view that Neovia's operating
performance will improve modestly over the next 18 months and that
the end of one-time charges associated with its spin-off from
Caterpillar will lead to improved credit metrics," said Ms.
Jenkins.  The company has been taking steps to improve its
operating efficiency and end market and customer diversity, though
the benefits from these efforts have been offset by the costs
related to its spinoff from Caterpillar.  These costs are now
substantially behind the company, and S&P believes that this,
coupled with benefits from new business wins and growth with
existing customers, will result in a significant improvement in
credit metrics over the next 12 months.  S&P has factored this
improvement into its current ratings.

S&P could lower the rating if unexpected operating problems,
reduced demand from existing customers, aggressive growth
initiatives, or increased use of debt cause debt to EBITDA to
exceed 7x, and S&P believes it will stay at that level for a
sustained period.

Given Neovia's very aggressive financial policy, private equity
ownership, and the potential for acquisitions, S&P do not believe
an upgrade is likely over the next 12 months.  Still, S&P could
raise the rating if benefits from marketing and efficiency
improvement efforts lead to a greater-than-expected improvement in
operating results, such that debt to EBITDA falls to less than
4.5x and S&P believes the company's financial policy has changed
so that the improvement will be sustained.


NEPHROS INC: Receives FDA 510(k) Clearance for Ultrafilters
-----------------------------------------------------------
Nephros, Inc., had received 510(k) clearance from the Food and
Drug Administration to market its DSU-H and SSU-H Ultrafilters for
use in the hospital setting.

The DSU-H and SSU-H Ultrafilters are intended to be used to filter
EPA quality drinking water.  The filters retain bacteria, viruses
and endotoxin.  By providing ultrapure water for patient washing
and drinking, the filters aid in infection control.  The filters
also produce water that is suitable for wound cleansing, cleaning
of equipment used in medical procedures and washing of surgeon's
hands.  The filters are not intended to provide water that can be
used as a substitute for USP sterile water.

"The 510(k) clearance of our DSU-H and SSU-H Ultrafilters
represents a significant step forward in helping hospitals and
other healthcare facilities with their infection control
strategies," said John C. Houghton, president & CEO of Nephros,
Inc.  "Nephros will be launching the DSU-H and SSU-H Ultrafilters
in collaboration with its hospital distributors over the coming
weeks."

According to the America Hospital Association there are
approximately 5,700 hospitals and 920,000 beds in the U.S. and the
United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates
that healthcare associated infections annually account for 1.7
million infections and 99,000 deaths.  HAIs affect patients in a
hospital or other healthcare facility, and are not present or
incubating at the time of admission.  They also include infections
acquired by patients in the hospital or facility but appearing
after discharge, and occupational infections among staff.  Many
HAIs are waterborne bacteria and viruses that can thrive in aging
or complex plumbing systems often found in healthcare facilities.
The Affordable Care Act, which was passed in March 2010, puts in
place comprehensive health insurance reforms that aim to lower
costs and enhance quality of care.  With its implementation,
healthcare providers have substantial incentives to deliver better
care or be forced to absorb the expenses associated with repeat
medical procedures or complications like HAIs.  As a consequence,
hospitals and other healthcare facilities are proactively
implementing strategies to reduce the potential for HAIs.  The
Company's ultrafilters are designed to aid in infection control in
the hospital and healthcare setting by treating facility water
just prior to it being used.

                           About Nephros

River Edge, N.J.-based Nephros, Inc., is a commercial stage
medical device company that develops and sells high performance
liquid purification filters.  Its filters, which it calls
ultrafilters, are primarily used in dialysis centers and
healthcare facilities for the production of ultrapure water and
bicarbonate.

Nephros, Inc., reported a net loss of $3.69 million in 2013
following a net loss of $3.26 million in 2012.

As of June 30, 2014, the Company had $2.35 million in total
assets, $2.13 million in total liabilities and $216,000 in total
stockholders' equity.

Rothstein Kass, in Roseland, New Jersey, 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 negative cash flow from operations and net
losses since inception.  These conditions, among others, raise
substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going
concern.

Canada, and Europe commenced on Sept. 22, 2014.


O'BANNON PLAZA: Loses Appeal in Claim Dispute With CAB Properties
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Nevada District Judge Andrew P. Gordon junked debtor O'Bannon
Plaza LLC's appeals from the bankruptcy court's order on the
Debtor's objections to the secured claim of CAB Properties, LLC.

The Debtor argues the assignment through which CAB obtained its
secured interest is invalid because it conflicts with the
underlying deed of trust, and because the note was sold in a
manner that violated state and federal securities laws.
Alternatively, the Debtor argues that if the assignment is valid,
CAB owes the Debtor amounts held in escrow by the prior lender.
The Debtor also argues the bankruptcy court erred by failing to
reduce CAB's attorney's fees.  The Debtor argues CAB should not be
entitled to default interest because its overly aggressive conduct
wrongfully pushed the Debtor into liquidation.

Judge Gordon, however, held that the Debtor waived its arguments
about the invalidity of the assignment to CAB because the Debtor
raised those arguments for the first time on appeal.

"I affirm the bankruptcy court's ruling that CAB was not required
to reimburse Debtor for the escrow funds. Finally, I affirm the
attorney's fee award," Judge Gordon said.

The case is, O'BANNON PLAZA LLC, Appellant, v. CAB PROPERTIES,
LLC, Appellee, Case No. 2:14-CV-00107-APG (D. Nev.).  A copy of
the Court's October 22, 2014 Opinion is available at

O'Bannon Plaza LLC owned property known as O'Bannon Plaza, located
on Rainbow Boulevard in Las Vegas, Nevada.  It filed for Chapter
11 bankruptcy (Bankr. D. Nev. Case No. 12-10368) on Jan. 13, 2012.
Judge Linda B. Riegle presided over the case.  David J. Winterton
& Assoc., Ltd. served as the Debtor's Chapter 11 counsel.  In its
schedules, the Debtor listed assets of $4,542,078 and liabilities
of $3,266,482.  A list of the Company's 15 largest unsecured
creditors filed with the petition is available for free at:
http://bankrupt.com/misc/nvb12-10368.pdf The petition was signed
by Morris Zagha, managing member.

The Debtor proposed a plan of reorganization pursuant to which
Debtor would make monthly payments to CAB for ten years. CAB
objected to the plan, moved to appoint a trustee, and moved to
convert the case to a Chapter 7 proceeding.  The bankruptcy court
appointed a trustee on April 11, 2013, but denied the request to
convert the case at that point, and allowed the Debtor to move
forward with confirmation.  Following appointment of the trustee,
the bankruptcy court granted the motion to convert the case to a
Chapter 7 proceeding.  The bankruptcy court thereafter approved
the trustee's motion to sell the property free and clear of any
liens.  The property was sold at auction to an unrelated third
party for $5,575,000.


OPTIMA SPECIALTY: Moody's Rates New $300MM Secured Notes 'B3'
-------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service revised Optima Specialty Steel Inc.'s
rating outlook to stable from negative and affirmed its B2
corporate family rating, B2-PD probability of default rating and
B2 rating on its $175 million senior secured notes due 2016. The
change in outlook reflects the recent improvement in the company's
financial leverage and the increased liquidity, reduced interest
costs and extended debt maturities expected to result from the
company's proposed refinancing. Moody's also assigned a B3 rating
to Optima's proposed $300 million senior secured notes due 2019.
The proceeds from the note offering will be used to acquire Corey
Steel Company, increase the company's liquidity, pay transaction
fees and call premiums and to redeem the company's existing $175
million senior secured notes and $35 million senior unsecured
notes, which are both due in December 2016. The company also plans
to establish a new $75 million asset based lending facility that
will mature in October 2019 and replace its current $40 million
ABL revolver that is due in April 2016. The B2 rating on Optima's
existing senior secured notes due 2016 will be withdrawn when the
notes are redeemed.

The following ratings were affected in this rating action:

Assignments:

$300 Million Senior Secured Notes due 2019, assigned B3, LGD 4

Outlook Actions:

Changed To Stable From Negative

Affirmations:

Corporate Family Rating, Affirmed B2

Probability of Default Rating, Affirmed B2-PD

$175 Million Senior Secured Notes due 2016, B2 (to be
subsequently withdrawn)

Ratings Rationale

Optima's B2 corporate family rating reflects its small size and
exposure to cyclical industries and volatile steel prices, which
have weighed on its operating results over the past few years. The
rating also incorporates the company's acquisitive history and
inconsistent acquisition track record. Its acquisitions have been
mostly financed with debt and have produced a weaker than expected
operating performance, resulting in higher than anticipated
leverage, weak interest coverage and goodwill impairment charges.
Optima's ratings are supported by the company's above average
margins and returns relative to other rated steel companies, its
positive free cash flow and the increased liquidity, reduced
interest costs and extended debt maturities expected to result
from the company's proposed refinancing.

The change in Optima's outlook to stable from negative reflects
the recent improvement in its financial leverage and expectations
for substantial improvements in its interest coverage over the
next 12 to 18 months. It also reflects the increased liquidity,
reduced interest costs and extended debt maturities expected to
result from the company's proposed refinancing. Optima's operating
results were weak during the trailing twelve months ended June
2014 due to severe winter weather, steel price volatility,
relatively weak end market demand and supply chain disruptions. As
a result, Optima generated adjusted EBITDA of only $59 million.
However, the company did manage to generate almost $19 million of
free cash flow due to modest capital spending and working capital
reductions and reduced its total debt by $13 million. This has
resulted in a decline in Optima's leverage ratio (Debt/EBITDA) to
3.7x from 4.9x in June 2013. Optima's interest coverage ratio
(EBIT/Interest Expense) actually declined to 0.9x from 1.5x since
it issued $35 million of senior unsecured notes with a 16%
interest rate in February 2013 to partially fund the acquisition
of Kentucky Electric Steel.

Optima's second half operating results will likely be somewhat
similar to the first half. However, its operating performance is
expected to improve in 2015 since the supply chain disruptions at
Kentucky Electric Steel have been resolved and demand has begun to
modestly improve. They will also benefit from the EBITDA
generation of Corey Steel when the acquisition closes after the
proposed note offering. The improved operating results along with
the proposed refinancing should lead to significantly improved
interest coverage, but modestly worse financial leverage. The
refinancing will reduce the company's annual interest expense by
about $4 million, but raise its total outstanding debt by about
$60 million. Moody's is expecting Optima's leverage ratio to rise
to about 4.0x while its interest coverage increases to about 2.0x.
These metrics will remain commensurate with the company's rating.

Optima has an adequate liquidity profile with $6 million of cash
and $34 million of availability on its ABL revolver as of June 30,
2014. Its liquidity will increase by about $55 million when the
proposed refinancing and the acquisition of Corey Steel are
completed. Its borrowing availability will increase by about $30
million since the size of its ABL revolver will rise to $75
million from $40 million currently and its cash balance will
increase by about $20 million from the proceeds of the note
offering.

The B3 rating assigned to the proposed $300 million Senior Secured
Notes due 2019 is one notch below the corporate family rating due
to its expected lower recovery versus the proposed $75 million
asset based revolver, which has a first lien on Optima's current
assets. The senior secured notes will have a first lien on the
company's property, plant and equipment, but Optima's net PP&E is
modest ($116 million as of June 30, 2014) versus the size of the
expected note offering. The senior secured note rating is also
impacted by the lack of subordinated debt to provide a loss
absorbing buffer to the senior note holders since the $35 million
senior unsecured notes will be redeemed with the proceeds of the
senior notes.

Optima's ratings are not likely to experience upward pressure in
the near term. However, the ratings would be considered for an
upgrade if the company successfully integrates the acquisition of
Corey Steel, returns to producing adjusted EBIT margins above 10%
and achieves improved credit metrics. This would include
maintaining a leverage ratio below 4.0x and raising the interest
coverage above 2.5x on a sustainable basis.

The ratings would be considered for a downgrade if the company
does not successfully integrate the acquisition of Corey Steel or
experiences deteriorating operating results, pursues additional
debt financed acquisitions or shareholder distributions that
result in a leverage ratio above 5.0x or an interest coverage
ratio below 1.5x on a sustainable basis. A reduction in borrowing
availability or liquidity could also result in a downgrade.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Global Steel
Industry published in October 2012. Other methodologies used
include Loss Given Default for Speculative-Grade Non-Financial
Companies in the U.S., Canada and EMEA published in June 2009.

PEABODY ENERGY: Fitch Lowers Issuer Default Rating to 'BB-'
-----------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has downgraded Peabody Energy Corporation's
(Peabody, NYSE: BTU) Issuer Default Rating (IDR) to 'BB-' from
'BB'.

The Rating Outlook remains Negative.  Fitch believes the coal
markets are at or near the bottom of the cycle and should begin to
show a slow recovery.  The Negative Outlook reflects the
possibility that overcapacity persists in the metallurgical coal
market and the hard coking coal benchmark price remains below
$150/tonne (t) beyond the next 12-18 months.  Fitch expects
leverage could be above 4.5x through 2016.

Key Ratings Drivers

The downgrade results from Fitch's expectations for leverage to be
above 4.5x during a prolonged period of oversupply in the seaborne
coal markets.

Company Profile:

Peabody's credit ratings reflect large, well-diversified
operations, good control of low-cost production, exposure to high-
growth markets in Asia, top-line visibility in the domestic
market, strong liquidity, and high financial leverage.

Peabody is the largest private-sector coal company, globally, with
interests in 27 active mining operations producing primarily low-
sulfur thermal coal from the Powder River Basin (PRB; 134 million
tons sold in 2013,), high-heat thermal coal from the Illinois
Basin (IB; 26 million tons sold in 2013), and thermal and
metallurgical coal in Australia primarily for the Pacific Basin
seaborne markets (16 million metallurgical tons sold, 19 million
steam tons sold in 2013).  Proven and probable reserves are 8
billion tons.

Peabody is targeting 2014 U.S. volumes at 185 million to 190
million tons with essentially all of those volumes committed and
priced.  Based on projected 2014 production levels, 85% of 2015
U.S. volume is priced and 40%-50% of 2016 volume is priced.

Industry Risk:

Steam-coal demand in the U.S. is recovering, supply has been
disciplined, stocks are falling and prices are improving going
forward.  Globally, both metallurgical and steam coal are in
excess supply and prices are weak.  Coal producers have been
running for cash with a focus on reducing costs, which has delayed
price recovery.  In particular, Fitch believes the hard-coking
coal benchmark price could average below $135/t and the Newcastle
steam coal benchmark average below $85/t beyond 2015.  The
industry is consolidating, which should benefit supply/demand
dynamics longer term.

Expectations:

Fitch believes operating EBITDA could drop to $780 million for
2014 on lower average metallurgical and seaborne steam coal
prices.  Under the same assumptions, negative free cash flows
(FCF) could be as much as $170 million.  Peabody guides to 2014
capital expenditure of $200 million to $220 million before coal
lease expenditures ($280 million in 2014).  Interest expense runs
about $400 million and dividends are about $92 million, annually.
Management believes low capital spending levels can be maintained
for several years.

Fitch believes that earnings could improve in 2015 with improved
cost performance in Australia and market improvement in the U.S.
but that debt repayment could be elusive through 2016.  Beyond
that period, Fitch expects no further federal coal lease
expenditures and the end of Patriot VBA payments, which together
free-up $350 million in cash flow.

Financial Flexibility:

At Sept. 30, 2014, cash and equivalents were $466.5 million and
liquidity was $2.3 billion.  The company has a $1.65 billion
secured revolving credit facility maturing on Sept. 24, 2018, or
Aug. 15 2018 if the $1.5 billion 6% senior notes due in Nov. 2018
remain outstanding.  Utilization was $115 million for letters of
credit at June 30, 2014.  The company also has a $275 million
accounts receivable securitization program maturing in April 2016
which had $95 million available at June 30, 2014.  Revolver
covenants include an interest coverage minimum of 1.50:1 through
Dec. 31, 2015 with step-ups thereafter and a maximum net secured
leverage ratio of 3.50:1 through Dec. 31, 2015 with step-downs
thereafter.  Fitch anticipates that Peabody will operate within
its covenants.

Scheduled maturities of long-term debt are estimated at $32
million in 2014, $19 million in 2015, $666 million in 2016, $12
million in 2017 and $1.5 billion in 2018.

Capital Structure

Total debt with equity credit of $6 billion compares to
preliminary LTM Sept. 30, 2014 operating EBITDA of $759 million at
7.9x.  Fitch expects Peabody to focus on debt repayment while
leverage is above 3x but thereafter to invest in Australia and
Asia to the extent of its FCF.

RATING SENSITIVITIES

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

   -- Expectations of operating EBITDA less than $700 million in
      2015;
   -- Expectations of negative FCF in 2016;
   -- Expectations of total debt/EBITDA greater than 5x in 2016;
   -- More than $200 million of additional debt.

Positive: Future developments that may lead to a positive rating
action may include:

   -- Rationalization of excess supply in the seaborne
      metallurgical and steam


PQ CORP: Moody's Affirms B3 Corporate Family Rating
---------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service affirmed all ratings for PQ Corporation,
including the B3 Corporate Family Rating ("CFR"), and revised the
rating outlook to positive from stable.

"Continued reduction in leverage and improvement in cash flow
metrics could warrant upgrading the ratings in the near-term,"
said Ben Nelson, Moody's Assistant Vice President and lead analyst
for PQ Corporation.

The actions:

Issuer: PQ Corporation

Corporate Family Rating, Affirmed B3;

Probability of Default Rating, Affirmed B3-PD;

$150 million Senior Secured Revolving Credit Facility due 2017,
Affirmed B2 (LGD3);

$1.2 billion Senior Secured Term Loan due 2017, Affirmed B2
(LGD3);

$600 million Senior Secured Notes Due 2018, Affirmed Caa1
(LGD4);

Outlook, Changed to Positive From Stable.

Ratings Rationale

The B3 CFR is principally constrained by high financial leverage
and modest prospects for free cash flow generation. Leading market
positions in diverse end markets, broad customer base with many
long-term relationships, and geographic diversity lend stability
to the financial performance of the business relative to many
other rated companies in the chemical industry. These factors,
which support a better than average business profile, are the
primary reason that Moody's maintained the B3 CFR despite adjusted
financial leverage well in excess of 7 times (Debt/EBITDA) and
very thin free cash flow generation dating back to an acquisition
in mid-2008. Good liquidity is also an important factor supporting
the rating.

PQ's financial performance has improved following multiple years
of capital investment in process improvement and new capacity,
particularly in the higher-margin catalyst business, and some
stabilization of macroeconomic conditions in Europe. Key credit
measures have strengthened with adjusted financial leverage in the
mid 6 times, interest coverage in the mid 2 times
(EBITDA/Interest), retained cash flow near 8% (RCF/Debt), and free
cash flow near 2% (FCF/Debt) for the twelve months ended June 30,
2014. By comparison, the company had leverage in the low 7 times
and modestly negative free cash flow at the last rating
affirmation in October 2012. These metrics incorporate Moody's
standard adjustments for the capitalization of operating leases,
debt attribution for the underfunded portion defined benefit
pension plans, and proportionate consolidation of the company's
joint ventures.

The positive rating outlook reflects Moody's expectations for
credit metrics to strengthen further over the next 12-18 months,
including leverage falling toward 6 times and stronger free cash
flow generation. Moody's could upgrade the rating with
expectations for financial leverage sustained below 6 times,
retained cash flow sustained above 8% of debt, and free cash flow
sustained above 3% of debt. An upgrade would also consider the
financial policy implications of the company's recent change of
ownership. Moody's could downgrade the rating with expectations
for sustained negative free cash flow or substantive deterioration
in the company's liquidity position.

The principal methodology used in this rating was Global Chemical
Industry Rating Methodology published in December 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.

PQ Corporation is a leading provider of inorganic specialty
chemicals, including sodium silicates, silicate derivatives,
catalysts, reflective glass spheres, and engineered glass
materials. CCMP Capital Advisors is expected to purchase a 47%
stake in the company in late 2014. Affiliates of The Carlyle Group
previously purchased the company in a secondary leveraged buyout
from CCMP in July 2007. The company acquired INEOS' silica
business through a leveraged transaction in July 2008. INEOS and
members of management will own most of the remaining 53% of the
company. Headquartered in Malvern, Pa., the company generates
revenues of about $1.1 billion.


PROVIDENCE SERVICE: S&P Retains 'B+' CCR on $120MM Debt Add-On
--------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said its 'B+' corporate credit
rating on U.S.-based Providence Service Corp. is unchanged by the
$120 million add-on to the company's existing $130 million senior
secured term loan A-2 to partly fund the acquisition of Matrix.
However, S&P is revising its recovery rating on the company's
existing senior secured debt to '4' from '3', indicating its
expectation of average (30%-50%) recovery in the event of a
default.  S&P made this revision because the size of the credit
facility was increased.  The 'B+' issue-level rating on this debt
is unchanged.  S&P do not rate the $65 million of new unsecured
subordinated notes the company also used to fund the acquisition.
S&P is withdrawing the 'B-' issue-level rating on the $200 million
senior unsecured notes as they were never issued.

RADIOSHACK CORP: Brings on GM Bailout Veteran to Aid Turnaround
---------------------------------------------------------------
Drew Fitzgerald and Matt Jarzemsky, writing for The Wall Street
Journal, reported that RadioShack Corp. has tapped a veteran of
the crisis-era auto bailouts for advice on turning around its
battered operations.  According to the report, the struggling
electronics chain said it had hired Harry Wilson as "chief
revitalization officer" to advise the company's board and managers
as they work to bring shoppers back into its stores and repair its
balance sheet.

                           *     *     *

As reported by the TCR on Sept. 15, 2014, Standard & Poor's
Ratings Services lowered its corporate credit rating on Fort
Worth, Texas-based RadioShack Corp. to 'CCC-' from 'CCC'.

"The downgrade comes as the company announced it will seek
capital, and that such a transaction could include a debt
restructuring in addition to store closures and other measures,"
said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Charles Pinson-Rose.

In the Sept. 16, 2014, edition of the TCR, the TCR reported that
Fitch Ratings had downgraded the Long-term Issuer Default Rating
(IDR) for RadioShack Corporation (RadioShack) to 'C' from 'CC'.
The downgrade reflects the high likelihood that RadioShack will
need to restructure its debt in the next couple of months.

The TCR reported on March 13, 2014, that Moody's Investors Service
downgraded RadioShack Corporation's corporate family rating to
Caa2 from Caa1.  "The continuing negative trend in RadioShack's
sales and margins has resulted in a precipitous drop in
profitability causing continued deterioration in credit metrics
and liquidity," Mickey Chadha, Senior Analyst at Moody's said.


RADNOR HOLDINGS: Court Rejects CEO Motion in Tennenbaum Suit
------------------------------------------------------------
District Judge C. Darnell Jones, II, denied two motions filed by
Michael T. Kennedy, the CEO and majority shareholder of Radnor
Holdings Corporation and its consolidated subsidiaries, in a
lawsuit against him filed by Tennenbaum Capital Partners LLC.

Mr. Kennedy brought two motions (1) to stay the execution of
judgment pending his adversary case in U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the District of Delaware, to repay all fees and expenses, and to
assess damages and sanctions, and (2) to vacate the judgment
pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 60(b) and (d).

Tennenbaum loaned Radnor money pursuant to a Guaranty and Negative
Pledge Agreement.  In 2009, Tennenbaum brought an action for
breach of contract in the Southern District of New York against
the CEO for failure to pay the amount owed under the Guaranty
Agreement.  On Sept. 11, 2009, Judge Laura Taylor Swain of the
Southern District of New York granted Tennenbaum's motion for
summary judgment and ordered that Tennenbaum should recover from
the CEO a total of $14,394,180.

The case is, TENNENBAUM CAPITAL PARTNERS LLC, Plaintiff, v.
MICHAEL T. KENNEDY, Defendant, Civil Action No. 09-MC-00194 (E.D.
Pa.).  A copy of the Court's Oct. 24, 2014 Memorandum is available

the Debtors filed for protection from their creditors, they
disclosed total assets of $361,454,000 and debt of $325,300,000.


REGAL ENTERTAINMENT: Special Dividend No Impact on Moody's B1 CFR
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service says the announced plan of Regal
Entertainment Group (Regal) to pay a special dividend and to
evaluate strategic alternatives does not impact its B1 Corporate
Family Rating (CFR) or stable outlook.

The special dividend, estimated at about $155 million, will
consume cash that could otherwise have been used to repay debt or
to support growth and enhance value, such as organic investments
or acquisitions. As such, it is credit negative, but in line with
the company's track record and Moody's expectations. Since 2006,
Regal has distributed approximately $2 billion of dividends to
shareholders, essentially all of its cumulative pre dividend free
cash flow of about $2 billion during that time. Regal had $244
million of cash as of the September quarter end and will likely
build incremental cash prior to payment of the special dividend,
leaving it with ample liquidity to fund it.

Regal reported leverage of about 5.8 times debt-to-EBITDA for the
quarter ended June 30, and Moody's estimates leverage climbed to
around 6 times for results through September given the weak
attendance and box office trends. The dividend will not impact
leverage metrics since Moody's focuses on Regal's gross leverage.
This level is at the high end of the range appropriate for the B1
CFR, but Moody's incorporates volatility related to the appeal of
films into the analysis.

Regal also announced that its Board of Directors has authorized
the exploration of strategic alternatives to enhance shareholder
value, which could include a potential sale of the company.
Moody's will evaluate the impact on the credit profile as
information becomes available.

Regal Entertainment Group, the parent of Regal Cinemas
Corporation, operates 7,347 screens in 573 theaters in 42 states
along with Guam, Saipan, American Samoa and the District of
Columbia, primarily in mid-sized metropolitan markets and suburban
growth areas of larger metropolitan markets throughout the U.S.
The company maintains its headquarters in Knoxville, Tennessee,
and its revenue for the twelve months ended September 25 was
approximately $2.9 billion. Attendance during that time period was
approximately 216 million.


REGAL ENTERTAINMENT: S&P Puts 'B+' CCR on CreditWatch Negative
--------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services placed all its ratings on
Knoxville, Tenn.-based movie exhibitor Regal Entertainment Group
and its operating subsidiary Regal Cinemas Corp. on CreditWatch
with negative implications.  The affected ratings include the 'B+'
corporate credit rating, the 'BB' issue-level rating on the
company's senior secured credit facility, and the 'B-' issue-level
rating on the senior unsecured notes.  The recovery ratings on the
debt issues remain unchanged.

The CreditWatch placement follows the company's announcement that
it is exploring strategic alternatives, including the potential
sale of the company.  "Given Regal's size and market share, we
believe a potential sale to another large U.S. circuit is
unlikely, since it would face intense regulatory scrutiny and
require extensive divestitures," said Standard & Poor's credit
analyst Jeanne Shoesmith.  "If the company is sold, we believe the
buyer would likely be a financial buyer that operates on a debt-
financed investment return strategy and that this could
significantly increase financial risk."

Regal has historically returned excess cash to shareholders.  The
$1 per share dividend ($155 million) payable Dec. 15, 2014, will
be the sixth time that the company has paid a special dividend.
S&P assumed ongoing special dividends under its base-case scenario
and, therefore, have already factored it into its analysis.

In resolving the CreditWatch placement, S&P will continue to
monitor Regal's progress in exploring strategic alternatives,
including a possible sale, and any resulting effect on the
company.  If it appears that leverage will increase above 5x, S&P
could lower its ratings on the company.


RESTORGENEX CORP: Issues 100,000 Shares to Isaac Blech
------------------------------------------------------
RestorGenex Corporation issued to Isaac Blech 100,000 shares of
the Company's common stock and a warrant to purchase 75,000 shares
of common stock with an exercise price of $4.80 per share upon
conversion of a convertible promissory note issued by the Company
on or about March 4, 2013, to Mr. Blech in the aggregate principal
amount of $200,000, the Company disclosed in a regulatory filing
with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

The issuance of the Company's securities was exempt from
registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended pursuant
to exemptions from registration provided by Rule 506 of
Registration D and Section 4(a)(2) of the Act.

                          About RestorGenex

RestorGenex Corporation operates as a biopharmaceutical company.
It focuses on dermatology, ocular disease, and women's health
areas.  The company was formerly known as Stratus Media Group,
Inc., and changed its name to RestorGenex Corporation in March
2014.  RestorGenex Corporation is based in Los Angeles,
California.

Restorgenex reported a net loss of $2.45 million in 2013 following
a net loss of $6.85 million in 2012.  As of June 30, 2014, the
Company had $54.52 million in total assets, $9.23 million in total
liabilities and $45.29 million in total stockholders' equity.

Goldman Kurland and Mohidin LLP, in Encino, California, issued a
"going concern" qualification on the consolidated financial
statements for the year ended Dec. 31, 2013.  The independent
auditors noted that RestorGenex Corporation has suffered recurring
losses and has negative cash flow from operations.  These
conditions raise substantial doubt as to the ability of
RestorGenex Corporation to continue as a going concern.

------------------------------------------------------------
Tom Corrigan, writing for The Wall Street Journal, reported that
Atlantic City, N.J., was in court to collect as much as $30
million in unpaid property taxes from the Revel Casino Hotel, a
47-story beachfront resort.  According to the report, the city
asked Judge Gloria Burns of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Camden,

SAMUEL WYLY: Lawyers Ask Judge to Bless Art Sale
------------------------------------------------
Katy Stech, writing for Daily Bankruptcy Review, reported that
lawyers representing Samuel Wyly asked a bankruptcy judge in
Dallas, Texas, to approve the sale of the three paintings owned by
the Texan entrepreneur that were auctioned at Christie's a week
prior to the businessman's bankruptcy filing.

According to the report, auctioneers at Christie's were unaware
that the ex-billionaire had filed for bankruptcy and sold the
artwork without first getting permission from his bankruptcy
judge.  The report, citing court documents, said the Texas
entrepreneur didn't tell the lawyers who helped him file for
bankruptcy on Oct. 19 that he had turned over the paintings
several months ago to the Manhattan auction company.

Ohio), will remain in bankruptcy court after Judge Russ Kendig
denied the Plaintiff's motion to remand.

Schwab Ind. filed the lawsuit on May 5, 2014, in the Court of
Common Pleas for Cuyahoga County, Ohio against Huntington, Hahn
Loeser & Park, and HLP attorneys Lawrence Oscar and Andrew Krause.
The lawsuit seeks more than $350,000,000 in damages against
Defendants, primarily based on alleged conflicts of interest by
Huntington and HLP.  Huntington removed the case to the federal
court.

Judge Kending said the Defendants' removal of this matter to the
federal bankruptcy court appears sound.  The claims are related to
the bankruptcy case, giving the court jurisdiction under 28 U.S.C.
Sec. 1334(b).  "Plaintiff has not demonstrated that the court is
mandated to return this case to state court, nor shown any sound
reason for this court to permissively abstain or equitably remand
the action," Judge Kendig said.

                            About Sears

Sears Holdings Corporation (NASDAQ: SHLD) --
http://www.searsholdings.com/-- is an integrated retailer focused
on seamlessly connecting the digital and physical shopping
experiences to serve members.  Sears Holdings is home to Shop Your
Waytm, a social shopping platform offering members rewards for
shopping at Sears and Kmart as well as with other retail partners
across categories important to them.

The company operates through its subsidiaries, including Sears,
Roebuck and Co. and Kmart Corporation, with more than 2,000 full-
line and specialty retail stores in the United States and Canada.

Kmart Corporation and 37 of its U.S. subsidiaries filed voluntary
Chapter 11 petitions (Bankr. N.D. Ill. Lead Case No. 02-02474) on
Jan. 22, 2002.  Kmart emerged from chapter 11 protection on May 6,
2003, pursuant to the terms of an Amended Joint Plan of
Reorganization.  Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, LLP,
represented Kmart in its restructuring efforts.  Its balance sheet
showed $16,287,000,000 in assets and $10,348,000,000 in debts when
it sought chapter 11 protection.

Kmart bought Sears, Roebuck & Co., for $11 billion to create the
third-largest U.S. retailer, behind Wal-Mart and Target, and
generate $55 billion in annual revenues.  Kmart completed its
merger with Sears on March 24, 2005.

Sears Holdings reported a net loss of $1.36 billion in 2013, a net
loss of $930 million in 2012 and a net loss of $3.14 billion in
2011.  As of Aug. 2, 2014, Sears Holdings had $16.43 billion in
total assets, $15.51 billion in total liabilities and $919 million
in total equity.

                            *     *     *

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

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

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

Fitch Ratings had downgraded its long-term Issuer Default Ratings
(IDR) on Sears Holdings Corporation (Holdings) and its various
subsidiary entities (collectively, Sears) to 'CC' from 'CCC',
according to a TCR report dated Sept. 12, 2014.

                          About Seven S

Jonathan Saperstein, as trustee of the Alexis Daniella Saperstein
1994 Trust, Jonathan Alexander Saperstein 1994 Trust, and
Stephanie Nicole Saperstein 1994 Trust, initiated involuntary
Chapter 11 bankruptcy petitions for the Seven S entities on
October 3, 2014 in Houston, Texas (Bankr. S.D. Tex. Case Nos. 14-
35384 and 14-35387).

The Petitioning Creditors claim to be owed approximately $21.2
million by Seven S and Seven S Management.

The principal asset of Seven S is its interest in Tree Town, the
largest producer of container-grown trees in the country.  Tree
Town has seven locations in Texas and Florida comprising 4,472
acres. It produces over 200 varieties of shade, ornamental, fruit,
and palm trees ranging from 1 gallon to 670 gallon containers.

Jonathan Saperstein, the trustee of the Trusts, immediately filed
a motion for the bankruptcy court to order appointment of (1) an
interim trustee to administer the affairs of the Alleged Debtors
and (2) a receiver to administer the affairs of the Alleged
Debtors' wholly owned subsidiaries, Tree Town USA, Ltd. and Tree
Town USA Management, LLC, because of corporate waste and
pilferage, insider abuse, breaches of fiduciary duty, and
conflicts of interest of current management.  He says that his
father, Tree Town CEO David Saperstein has pulled millions of
dollars out of Tree Town to fund his own lifestyle.


SOUTHEAST POWERGEN: Moody's Assigns Ba2 Rating on $550.5MM Debt
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has assigned a Ba2 rating to Southeast
PowerGen, LLC's (SEPG) $550.5 million senior secured credit
facilities, proposed by affiliates of The Carlyle Group (Carlyle)
in anticipation of their acquisition of 75.05% of SEPG's equity.
The facilities consist of a $480 million term loan due 2021 and a
$70.5 million senior secured revolving credit/letter of credit
facility due 2019. The rating outlook is stable.

Separately, Moody's affirmed the Baa3 rating of Mackinaw Power,
LLC (Power), a subsidiary of SEPG. Power's rating outlook is
stable.

SEPG owns a portfolio of six gas-fired generating facilities with
a combined electric generating capacity of approximately 2,800
megawatts. The assets are all located in Georgia and each has
contracted their respective capacity to creditworthy counterparts
for various tenors.

SEPG is 50.10% owned by affiliates of ArcLight Energy Partners,
24.95% by affiliates of the Government of Singapore Investment
Corporation and 24.95% with affiliates of GE Capital. Concurrent
with the closing of the proposed credit facilities, ArcLight
Energy Partners and the Government of Singapore Investment
Corporation will sell their respective ownership to an affiliate
of Carlyle resulting in Carlyle owning 75.05% of SEPG. GE
Capital's ownership stake is unaffected.

Proceeds from the term loan will be used to repay existing debt
within the SEPG family, to partially fund Carlyle's purchase
price, to pay a dividend to GE Capital and to fund certain reserve
accounts.

Debt to be repaid includes $114 million outstanding under a senior
secured term loan at Mackinaw Power Holdings, LLC (Holdings: Ba2,
stable), another subsidiary of SEPG. As such, the rating assigned
to Holdings will be withdrawn upon the consummation of the
transaction.

The ratings are predicated upon final documentation in accordance
with Moody's current understanding of the transaction and final
debt sizing and model outputs consistent with initially projected
credit metrics and cash flows. Any material changes from the
documentation and information provided to date could impact the
ultimate credit rating.

Ratings Rationale -- SEPG:

"SEPG's Ba2 rating is supported by the significant level of
consolidated cash flows that are expected to be generated under
existing contracts, several of which extend meaningfully beyond
the term of the proposed financing" said Moody's Senior Credit
Officer Scott Solomon. "The structure of the contracts provide for
transparent revenue streams that exhibit low levels of volatility"
added Solomon.

These positive attributes, however, are balanced by re-contracting
risk for two of the assets, structural subordination and projected
consolidated financial metrics that are weak for the rating
category.

The generating capacity from SEPG's six assets is 100% contracted
with various creditworthy offtakers through 2015, primarily
through tolling contracts. Contracted counterparties (or their
guarantors) include Southern Power Company (Baa1, stable), Georgia
Power Company (A3, stable), Morgan Stanley (Baa2, positive),
Exelon Generation Company, LLC (Baa2, stable), Snapping Shoals
Electric Membership Corporation (Snapping Shoals: not rated) and
Central Georgia Membership Corporation (Central Georgia; not
rated).

Two existing tolling contracts expire on December 31, 2015. If the
capacity associated with the expiring contracts is not re-
contracted, the level of contracted capacity would decline by 30%
in January 2016. That said, regional power markets suggest a need
for gas-fired generating capacity and Moody's consider re-
contracting as likely.

The tolling contracts are structured to provide predictable,
although seasonal, revenue and cash flows. They do not burden SEPG
with fuel supply or commodity risk and show little cash flow
volatility under various tested scenarios. Capacity payments,
calculated using predetermined prices multiplied by dependable
capacity, are the largest components of SEPG's revenues.
Specifically, they account for more than 80% of total projected
contracted revenue and have a very stable and predictable profile.
Incremental revenues result when the facility is dispatched.

Several of the contracts extend well beyond the tenor of the
financing and generate significant revenues. Moody's calculate
that contracts scheduled to terminate after the financing tenor
will generate $500 million of capacity payments (approximately
$200 million on a NPV basis) during the period 2022 through 2035.
There is some concentration in this revenue, however;
approximately 60% is derived from two Electric Membership
Cooperatives.

Contracted revenues anticipated in 2022 and beyond compares
favorably to expected debt outstanding under the SEPG term loan at
or near the 2021 maturity, suggesting fairly modest refinancing
risk.

Tolling contracts with the 510 MW Effingham facility, a combined
cycle facility and Sandersville Peaking Units 3,4,7&8 (300 MW's of
capacity) expire on December 31, 2015. New contractual
arrangements for these assets have yet to be arranged, a negative.
Anticipated coal retirements due to environmental regulation
combined with delays in new nuclear construction and regional peak
demand growth, suggest a need for gas-fired generating capacity in
Georgia. As such, Moody's view re-contracting of these SEPG assets
as likely; pricing levels and contract tenors, however, are
uncertain.

SEPG has entered into incremental tolling contracts with new and
existing counterparties in the past few years.

The rating considers SEPG's subordinated position within the
consolidated capital structure. Four of SEPG's six assets
(Washington, Walton, Monroe and Effingham, totaling 1,904 MW's)
are currently owned by Power, although Effingham and Washington
Units 1&4 may be released from Power's collateral package as of
January 1, 2016. Cash generated by these four assets is first used
to meet Power's mandatory debt service requirements with residual
cash flow provided to SEPG, subject to financing restrictions.

Debt outstanding at Power includes $149 million senior secured
bonds (as of 10/31/14) due October 2023 and a $323.6 million
working capital/LOC facility due 2017.

Among other assumptions, Moody's analysis considered various re-
contracted pricing assumptions, around Effingham and Sandersville
Units 3,4,7&8. While Management's Base Case anticipates re-
contracting Effingham at $6.50/kw-month and Sandersville Peaking
Units 3,4,7& 8 at $4.40/kw-month, Moody's considered more
conservative prices in the range of $5.00 - $5.50 and $2.50-2.75,
respectively.

A key consideration for SEPG's rating is the consolidated entities
debt profile, which results in projected key metrics under Moody's
sensitivities that are modestly weak for the Ba rating category.
Specifically, Moody's expect SEPG's annual consolidated debt
service coverage ratio and ratio of funds from operations (FFO) to
debt to range between 1.1-1.8 times and 6-11%, respectively,
through 2017.

Day-to-day management and operation of SEPG's portfolio is
outsourced to a reputable contractor and its operating history has
been sound. Routine procedures during an unscheduled outage in
2011 at Effingham revealed unexpected damage to a compressor rotor
requiring premature replacement. Costs to purchase and install a
new rotor totaled approximately $12.7 million, of which $8.5
million was recoverable from insurance carriers.

Uncertainty around the cause of the damage to the rotor warrants
mention that major overhauls planned for 2015 and 2016 will
include a full inspection of Effingham's rotor. Moody's notes that
preventative maintenance and surveillance at Effingham has
increased and unusual findings are not anticipated.

The financing will incorporate typical project finance features
including limitations on indebtedness, a trustee administered
waterfall of accounts, six month debt service reserve and $10
million cash funded operating expense reserve account, an annual
(March) cash sweep beginning 2016 equal to the greater of 75% of
excess cash flow or the amount needed to achieve a target debt
balance, and a 1.1 times debt service coverage covenant
requirement. SEPG is prohibited from selling any of the six
generating facilities.

The stable outlook reflects Moody's assumption that Effingham and
Sandersville Units 3,4,7&8 are re-contracted in late 2015 at or in
excess of $5.00/kw-month and $2.50/kw-month, respectively, and
that the portfolio continues to operate in a sound manner.

Rating Rationale -- Mackinaw Power, LLC:

The affirmation of Powers' rating considered SEPG's new ownership
and reflects financial performance that is considered appropriate
for the Baa3 rating level.

Existing terms within Power's financing allow Effingham and
Washington Units 1&4 to be released from its collateral package in
January 2016, a credit negative. Assuming the assets are released,
they would be required to directly secure SEPG's credit
facilities.

Washington Units 1&4 have been re-contracted on a long-term basis
providing additional contracted cash flow. As such, should Power
retain Washington Units 1&4, Moody's calculate debt service
coverage ratio at levels that are in excess of 1.4 times, solidly
positioning the credit within the Baa rating category. Conversely,
a release of Washington Units 1&4, should it occur, would reduce
Power's cash flows and debt service coverage and could potentially
trigger negative rating action.

SEPG's future actions with respect to the ownership structure of
Washington Units 1&4 beginning in 2016 are uncertain. Moreover,
Moody's note that the release of Washington Units 1&4 would
require the consent of the lenders to its working capital/LOC
facility due 2017.

What Could Change the Rating -- Up

In the short-run, limited prospects exist for a rating upgrade at
SEPG. Over the longer term, positive developments that could lead
to an upgrade include re-contracting of Effingham and Sandersville
Units 3,4,7&8 at higher-than-anticipated prices levels, resulting
in substantial debt reduction and 'Ba' category financial metrics
under Moody's methodology.


SOUTHEAST POWERGEN: S&P Assigns Prelim. BB Rating on $550MM Loans
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it assigned its
preliminary 'BB' rating and preliminary '2' recovery rating to
project finance entity Southeast PowerGen LLC's proposed $480
million senior secured term loan due 2021 and $70.5 million
revolving credit facility due 2019.  The preliminary ratings are
subject to receipt and review of final financial and legal
documentation.

"We expect to rate SEPG under our project finance criteria,
subject to review of final documentation.  SEPG is expected to be
a special-purpose entity owning roughly 2.8 gigawatts of
generation capacity from six gas-fired plants in Georgia.  Pro
forma to the transaction, SEPG will be 75.05% owned by an
affiliate of Carlyle Power Partners, and 24.95% owned by an
affiliate of GE Energy Financial Services (GE EFS).  SEPG is
issuing a $480 million senior secured term loan and a $70.5
million revolving credit facility.  Net proceeds will support
Carlyle's acquisition of SEPG from previous owners ArcLight and
the Government of Singapore Investment Corp., repay existing
subsidiary debt, make a distribution to GE EFS, and fund liquidity
reserve accounts.  SEPG will repay the term loan through minimal
mandatory amortization and an annual cash flow sweep that is the
greater of either 75% of excess cash flow or an amount sufficient
to meet specific targeted debt balances," S&P said.

"Our preliminary 'BB' rating primarily reflects exposure to
recontracting risk when two key offtake agreements expire after
2015, moderate debt leverage (initial consolidated debt per
kilowatt (kw) of roughly $249), reliance on residual cash flows
from subsidiary Mackinaw Power LLC, and refinancing risk at the
end of the term loan B tenor.  These risks are partially offset by
the project's strong tolling contracts with creditworthy
counterparties.  The tolling agreements limit demand and price
risk by providing capacity payments in addition to pass-throughs
for fuel and other variable expenses," S&P added.

"The stable outlook reflects our expectation for steady cash flows
coming from the project's strong tolling agreements that minimize
market or fuel price exposure," said Standard & Poor's credit
analyst Stephen Coscia.

S&P could raise the rating if the portfolio has continued strong
operational performance, and Effingham and Sandersville are
recontracted at rates substantially higher than in S&P's base
case.  If long-term contracts were signed that eliminated
recontracting risk through the debt tenor, S&P's analysis would
focus more on refinancing risk.  An upgrade would require expected
term loan balance at maturity of less than $150 million, down from
S&P's current expectation of about $200 million and DSCRs closer
to 2.5x.

S&P could lower the rating if debt service coverage fell close to
1.5x, or the expected term loan balance at maturity increased to
about $225 million.  This could happen as a result of poor
operational performance or the failure to sign replacement
contracts at Effingham and Sandersville for sufficient rates.

STEM SCHOOL: S&P Assigns 'BB+' Rating on $14.7MM Revenue Bonds
--------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its 'BB+' rating to
the Colorado Educational and Cultural Facilities Authority's $14.7
million series 2014 fixed rate charter school refunding revenue
bonds issued for STEM School and Academy (STEM).  The outlook is
stable.

Now in the beginning of its fourth year of operations, the school
experienced a significant turnaround in management and operations
following poor performance its first year.  While S&P looks
favorably on the board's ability to quickly make the modifications
needed to improve the school, in S&P's opinion, the very recent
change in trajectory and leadership do not provide sufficient data
to determine whether these results will be lasting or if results
will change as the school settles into more established
operations.  S&P could consider a positive rating action outside
the outlook period if the school demonstrates an established trend
in performance and financial and enrollment results are consistent
with investment grade medians.

"The rating on STEM reflects our assessment of its short operating
history, high pro forma debt load, adequate pro forma maximum
annual debt service coverage, and the inherent risks associated
with charter schools, including the possibility that the charter
may be revoked," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Luke
Gildner.  "Offsetting these negatives are our view of the school's
growing enrollment, increased per pupil funding in fiscal 2015
from the state of Colorado, committed management, and sufficient
unrestricted cash level of $1.4 million (equal to 88 days' cash on
hand).

Management plans to use the proceeds of the bonds to refund and
restructure debt issued in 2012 and 2013 as well as pay for the
costs of issuance and fund a debt service reserve.  Upon
completion of the plan of finance, STEM's only bonds outstanding
will be the series 2014 bonds, and S&P understands the school has
no plans in the foreseeable future to issue additional debt.  The
bonds are secured by STEM's revenues as defined in the governing
bond documents consisting primarily of per-pupil funding from the
state of Colorado.

The stable outlook reflects S&P's expectation that during the next
year management will meet enrollment projections and operations
will remain consistent with prior years.  S&P also expects
liquidity will remain relatively stable.

S&P do not expect to take a positive rating action during the one-
year outlook period; however, S&P could take a positive rating
action if the charter school consistently meets financial
projections resulting in MADS coverage in excess of 1.4x while
maintaining current liquidity levels.  S&P could lower the rating
if enrollment does not increase as projected, operations weaken,
or the balance sheet deteriorates to less than 45 days' cash on
hand.


STG-FAIRWAY ACQUISITIONS: S&P Removes 'B' CCR From Watch Negative
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services affirmed its ratings on STG-
Fairway Acquisition Inc., including the 'B' corporate credit
rating, and removed the ratings from CreditWatch, where they were
placed with negative implications on May 6, 2014.  The outlook is
stable.

At the same time, S&P affirmed its 'B' issue rating (the same
level as the corporate credit rating) on the company's $315
million first-lien term loan and $25 million revolver.  The
recovery rating of '3', indicating that lenders could expect
meaningful (50%-70%) recovery in the event of payment default or
bankruptcy, remains unchanged.

In addition, S&P affirmed its 'CCC+' issue rating (two notches
below the corporate credit rating) on STG's $125 million second-
lien term loan.  The recovery rating of '6', indicating that
lenders could expect negligible (0%-10%) recovery in the event of
a payment default or bankruptcy, remains unchanged.

"The affirmation reflects the resolution of 2012 accounting errors
and issuance of its 2013 financial statement audit that is
substantially close to levels we previously anticipated," said
Standard & Poor's credit analyst Rod Olivero.

The ratings on STG reflect its significant debt burden, aggressive
financial policy, and narrow business focus in a sector with low
growth prospects.  S&P forecasts leverage (as measured by the
ratio of debt to EBITDA) should remain in the mid-4x area and
funds from operations to debt to be in the low-teens percent area.
However, S&P believes the company's financial policy will be
determined by its financial sponsors.  Most financial sponsors
focus on generating investment returns over short time horizons
(less than five years), at times through acquisitions and
dividends.  S&P believes STG could make such transactions within
the next 12 months, thereby increasing leverage above 5x.

The outlook is stable, which reflects S&P's expectation that
operating performance will modestly improve as the company
continues to achieve cost synergies from its transformational
merger with LexisNexis.  S&P could lower the ratings if the
company's operating performance falls significantly short of its
forecast.  Although unlikely, S&P could consider raising the
ratings if the company improves its operating efficiency through
organic revenue growth and continued acquisition integration such
that it can sustain EBITDA margin above 30% and total debt to
EBITDA below 4x.


TARSIN INC: Consorteum Holdings Inks License Agreement with NYG
---------------------------------------------------------------
Consorteum Holdings, Inc. on Oct. 28 disclosed that it has entered
into a multi-year license agreement with NYG Holdings LLC), a
Nevada limited liability company.  Pursuant to a Sale Order
approved by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of
California, NYG purchased various assets from named debtors
Game2Mobile and Tarsin Inc., including right, title and interest
in the CAPSA platform.

In October 2012, the Company reached an exclusive licensing
agreement with Tarsin, Inc. that allowed the Company to license
the CAPSA platform to sell mobile gaming and wagering programs
throughout Canada, Mexico, as well as certain customers in the
United States.  In connection therewith, the Company remitted
certain sums as advances against the license.  Subsequent to the
parties entering into the license agreement, Tarsin Inc. filed a
voluntary petition for bankruptcy protection in the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court. Northern District of California.  The Company
was a creditor in this Case No. 13-53607.  As discussed in greater
detail in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10K for the year
ended June 30, 2014, the Company elected to reserve the entire
amount of the Tarsin receivable until the outcome of the
Bankruptcy Case was determined.

The Bankruptcy Court's approval of the sale of Debtor's assets,
including CAPSA to NYG, paved the way for NYG and Consorteum to
enter into a new, enhanced multi-year license agreement.  The
parties have agreed to an initial term of five years, renewable
annually upon mutual agreement.  Pursuant to the terms of the
license, CSRH shall have the ability to modify aspects of the
CAPSA platform, combine it with other technological advances
created by CSRH's development subsidiary, ThreeFiftyNine ("359"),
and rebrand and market it under a new name.  CSRH also obtained
sublicense rights under the new arrangement.  Under the terms of
the NYG license agreement, the Company will receive credit for
sums advanced pursuant to the previous Tarsin, Inc. license.  The
new license agreement also provides for royalty payments to NYG
beginning 18 months after the Effective Date of the license
agreement.

Commenting on the new license agreement with NYG, Craig Fielding,
CEO of Consorteum and President of 359, stated, "We are thrilled
to have the ability to combine certain attributes of the NYG
platform with 359's mobile hybrid solution.  Securing the rights
to build upon this regulatory-approved platform further enhances
our exciting mobile product offerings."

TEMPLAR ENERGY: S&P Withdraws 'B-' Rating on $550MM Loan
--------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services withdrew its 'B-' issue-level
rating on Templar Energy LLC's $550 million second-lien term loan.
The action follows Templar's decision not to issue the term loan,
and instead add on to its existing $900 million second-lien term
loan maturing in 2020, which S&P rates 'B-' with a recovery of
'5', indicating the potential for modest (10% to 30%) recovery in
the event of a payment default.

The 'B' corporate credit rating on Templar Energy LLC reflects
S&P's assessment of the company's "weak" business risk and "highly
leveraged" financial risk profiles.  The positive outlook on
Templar reflects S&P's expectation that the company will continue
to expand its reserves and production and improve its credit
measures.  S&P could raise the rating if the company decreased
leverage to below 4x and increased funds from operations to debt
to above 20% on a sustained basis while also maintaining adequate
liquidity.

TRUMP ENTERTAINMENT: Taj Mahal Insists on Keeping Trump Name
------------------------------------------------------------
David Sheldon, writing for Casino.org, reports that Trump
Entertainment Resorts Inc.'s Trump Taj Mahal's attorneys claim
that removing the Trump brand from their cleint's name would be
"destructive" while the casino property is trying to dodge Chapter
11 bankruptcy.

According to Casino.org, Trump Entertainment calls Donald Trump's
litigation to remove his name from both Taj Mahal and Trump
Entertainment "baseless and value-destructive."  The report says
that Trump Entertainment also refuses to budge on the name-change.
The report quoted Trump Entertainment as saying, "The debtors face
many challenges, and the last thing these Chapter 11 cases can
afford is the significant expense, distraction and uncertainty of
state court litigation over whether the debtors can preserve the
very name under which they do business."

                About Trump Entertainment Resorts

VANTAGE PIPELINE: S&P Affirms 'BB-' CCR Then Withdraws Rating
-------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it affirmed its ratings,
including its 'BB-' long-term corporate credit rating, on Vantage
Pipeline Canada ULC and Vantage Pipeline U.S. L.P.  Standard &
Poor's then withdrew its ratings on both companies.

"The withdrawal reflects Pembina Pipeline Corp.'s acquisition of
Vantage and the repayment of its term loan B, which was completed
Oct. 24," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Gerry Hannochko.

At the time of the withdrawal, the 'BB-' ratings reflected the
company's "satisfactory" business risk profile and "highly
leveraged" financial risk profile.

S&P views Vantage's business risk profile as satisfactory.  The
10-year take-or-pay volume commitment from NOVA Chemicals Corp.
for 50% of the pipe's capacity is on a fee-for-service basis with
some degree of cost pass-through.  The minimum volumes will
provide for a base level of debt servicing.  Vantage has a
commitment to receive all the ethane produced from the Tioga plant
at the pipeline's origin, which S&P believes will eventually
provide for stronger cash-flow support.

S&P believes that Vantage had a highly leveraged financial risk
profile, with adjusted funds from operations-to-debt below 12% for
the next two years.  A financial sponsor (Riverstone) owned the
company, and under S&P's financial sponsor criteria, it assigned
an 'FS-6' assessment, which constrains the financial risk profile
to the highly leveraged category, regardless of the forecast
metrics.


VIGGLE INC: Signs $30 Million Purchase Agreement With Sillerman
---------------------------------------------------------------
Viggle Inc. and Sillerman Investment Company III LLC entered into
a securities purchase agreement pursuant to which SIC III agreed
to purchase certain securities issued by the Company for a total
of $30,000,000, according to a regulatory filing with the U.S.
Securities and Exchange Commission.

Pursuant to the Securities Purchase Agreement, the Company issued
a Line of Credit Promissory Note, which provides for a $20,000,000
line of credit to the Company.  In addition, SIC III agreed to
purchase 10,000 shares of a new class of Series C Convertible
Preferred Stock for a total of $10,000,000.  The Company also
agreed to issue to SIC III warrants to purchase 1,500,000 shares
of the Company's common stock.  The warrants will be issued in
proportion to amounts the Company draws under the Note and amounts
paid for the Shares.  The exercise price of the warrants will be
10% above the closing price of the Company's shares on the date
prior to the issuance of the warrants.  Exercise of the warrants
will be subject to approval of the Company's stockholders.

Line of Credit Note

On Oct. 24, 2014, the Company issued to SIC III the Note.  The
Note provides a right for the Company to request advances under
the Note from time to time.  On Oct. 24, 2014, SIC III made an
initial advance under the Note of $4,500,000.  The Note provides
that the Company may request additional advances of up to
$15,500,000, provided that additional advances bringing the total
of advances to an amount in excess of $5,000,000 may be made only
after Dec. 15, 2014, and to pay off amounts outstanding under the
Company's Term Loan Agreement with Deutsche Bank Trust Company
Americas.  The Note bears interest at a rate of 12% per annum,
payable in cash on a quarterly basis.  In addition, the Note
provides for a 3% discount, such that the amount advanced by SIC
III will be 3% less than the associated principal amount of the
advance.  From and after the occurrence and during the continuance
of any event of default under the Note, the interest rate is
automatically increased to 17% per annum.

In connection with the first drawdown of $4,500,000 under the
Note, the Company issued to SIC III warrants to purchase 225,000
shares of the Company's common stock.  These warrants have an
exercise price of $3.51, representing a price equal to 10% above
the closing price of the Company's common stock on the day prior
to issuance.

Series C Convertible Preferred Stock

The Company created a new class of Series C Convertible Preferred
Stock by filing a Certificate of Designations of the Series C
Convertible Preferred Stock of the Company with the Secretary of
State of the State of Delaware.  The Company authorized the
issuance of up to 100,000 shares of the Series C Convertible
Preferred Stock.

Issuance of Warrants

The Company agreed to issue SIC III warrants to purchase 1,500,000
shares of the Company's common stock in connection with advances
under the Note and the purchase of the Shares.  The Company will
issue Warrants to purchase 50,000 shares of the Company's common
stock for every $1,000,000 advanced under the Note or every
$1,000,000 of purchase price paid for the Shares.
In connection with the $4,500,000 advance under the Note on
Oct. 24, 2014, the Company issued SIC III Warrants to purchase
225,000 shares of the Company's common stock at an exercise price
of $3.51, representing a price equal to 10% above the closing
price of the Company's common stock on the day prior to issuance.
The Warrants are exercisable, subject to approval of the Company's
stockholders, for a period of five years from issuance.

Registration Rights

On Oct. 24, 2014, the Company entered into a Registration Rights
Agreement with SIC III pursuant to which the Company agreed to
register the shares of the Company's capital stock owned by SIC
III.  The Registration Rights Agreement allows SIC III to require
the Company to register its shares.  If the Company receives such
a request from SIC III, the Company will use its best efforts to
effect such registration.  In addition, if the Company otherwise
initiates a registration of shares of its capital stock (other
than pursuant to a Registration Statement on Form S-4 or S-8, or
any successor forms), SIC III will have a right to participate in
such registration, subject to cutbacks set by the underwriter in
such registration.

Amendment to Term Loan Agreement

The Company is party to the Term Loan Agreement with Deutsche
Bank.  The Term Loan Agreement provides that the Company will use
the proceeds of any debt or equity capital raises to prepay
amounts outstanding under the Term Loan Agreement.  In connection
with the transactions contemplated by the Securities Purchase
Agreement, on Oct. 24, 2014 the Company entered into an amendment
with Deutsche Bank pursuant to which the prepayment provision was
removed, allowing the Company to issue the Shares and request
advances under the Note without having to prepay those amounts to
Deutsche Bank.  Deutsche Bank and SIC III entered into a
Subordination Agreement pursuant to which the repayment of amounts
under the Note is subordinated to repayment of amounts under the
Term Loan Agreement.

WEST TEXAS GUAR: Nov. 20 Hearing on Reorganization Plan Set
-----------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Texas is
set to hold a hearing on Nov. 20 to consider approval of West
Texas Guar Inc.'s latest plan to exit bankruptcy protection.

Under the latest plan, which the company co-proposed with Scopia
Windmill Fund LP, bean growers whose claims were classified under
Classes 4 and 5 will receive different treatment of their claims.

Class 4 and 5 creditors who accept the plan will receive cash
equal to 75% of their claims.  Class 4 creditors will also receive
additional payments from the $2.95 million held by an escrow
agent.

On the other hand, those Class 4 and 5 creditors who reject the
plan will receive 100% of their claims, paid over 4 years in equal
quarterly installments.

The restructuring plan also provides that the reorganized company
will make the proposed distributions of 75% of the contracted-for
claim amount to Class 4 and 5 creditors who do not submit a ballot
or whose ballots are not counted as if they voted to accept the
plan.  Such distributions will be made by check payable to
nonvoting creditors in December.

WILLBROS GROUP: S&P Revises Outlook to Stable & Affirms 'B-' CCR
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services revised its rating outlook on
Houston-based engineering and construction company Willbros Group
Inc. to stable from positive.  At the same time, S&P affirmed its
ratings on the company, including the 'B-' corporate credit
rating.

"The outlook revision reflects the company's announcement that it
has identified approximately $22 million to $24 million in
deterioration of a significant pipeline construction project in
its Northeast regional business within its oil and gas segment,"
said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Robyn Shapiro.

Although some of the project deterioration occurred during the
third quarter of 2014, the company determined that a majority of
these estimated charges should have been recognized in the second
quarter of 2014.  As a result, the company expects to restate its
second quarter of 2014 results.  In addition, the company is
evaluating whether inadequate internal control over financial
reporting, disclosure, and procedures had any impact on its prior
conclusions.  The company has also announced it is refocusing its
business strategy under the leadership of a newly elected CEO and
a restructured management team.

Willbros serves the oil, gas, refining, petrochemical, and power
industries, providing engineering, procurement and construction
(either individually or as an integrated engineering, procurement,
and construction service offering), turnarounds (refining process
upgrades or renewals), maintenance, facilities development, and
operations services.

The rating incorporates the inherent cyclicality of the
engineering and construction services sector in which Willbros
participates.  The operating losses associated with certain of the
company's projects demonstrate the inherent risks associated with
the sector.  Specifically, these risks include the sector's
competitive nature, the economic and political risks to searching
for and extracting energy sources, and the potential for cost
overruns in the execution of fixed-price contracts.

Still, S&P believes that the company's operating performance over
the next several years could benefit from fundamentals supporting
increased activity in some of its end markets.  Low natural gas
prices have sparked renewed interest and investment in the
petrochemical industry, and new domestic crude production requires
transportation and terminal infrastructure.  In addition, the
company's opportunities in the Canadian oil sands are improving,
with production expected to increase over the next few years.  In
addition, in the company's utility transmission and distribution
segment, transmission spending is likely to increase domestically
over the next several years.

The outlook is stable.  S&P expects the company will successfully
make the remaining WAPCo settlement payment of $32.7 million, due
at the end of the fourth quarter of 2014.  Willbros plans to use
the proceeds from future asset sales to reduce debt.  Despite its
previous execution challenges, S&P expects that Willbros will
gradually improve operating performance.  Although financial
covenant headroom has declined, S&P expects the company will
address any covenant default in a timely manner.

S&P could lower the rating during the next 12 months if Willbros'
operating performance declines more than S&P currently expects,
causing liquidity to deteriorate so that ongoing cash outflows
increase.  This could result from any additional unexpected
execution challenges and project losses.

S&P could raise the rating during the next 12 months if the
company generates and sustains positive free cash flow.

For an upgrade, S&P would expect the company to maintain
"adequate" liquidity, including at least 15% headroom under
financial covenants, and to continue maintaining debt leverage at
less than 5x.


XTREME POWER: Court Okays 2nd Motion to Sell Battery in China
-------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of Oklahoma
granted Xtreme Power Inc., Xtreme Power Grove, LLC, and Xtreme
Power Systems, LLC's expedited second motion to sell assets
located in Mainland China free and clear of liens, claims,
encumbrances and interests to Younicos Inc.

XPS had a venture agreement with a Chinese company, Sieyuan
Electric Co., under which it designed and manufactured a
demonstration battery array.  The China unit is currently sitting
idle at Sieyuan Electric's facility in Shanghai, China.  The China
unit is a fully-assembled array of 1,200 of the lead acid
PowerCells that were manufactured by XP Grove at the plant in
Oklahoma, all 6.5 versions.  The China unit also includes an older
model Eaton invertor.  The China unit is carried on XPS's books as
having an acquisition date of October 1, 2012, and a fully-
depreciated cost of $1,349,191.

By order dated April 11, 2014, the Court approved a sale of
substantially of the assets of XPI and XPS, and the assignment of
certain contracts, to Younicos Inc., for $14 million in cash.

In early August, Younicos informed XPS that it had remotely
accessed the China Unit and that it believes some of the batteries
might be salvageable, and so the China Unit might be economically
viable after all; and that it had begun considering the
possibility of sending a team to China to dissemble the China Unit
and ship the batteries back to Texas to be refurbished and resold.
Younicos indicated a willingness to purchase the China Unit from
XPS and discussions of that possibility commenced.

The Court also approved the purchase agreement between the Debtors
and Younicos.  The key terms of the Purchase Agreement include:

   -- The China Unit will be sold free and clear of all liens,
      claims, encumbrances and interests;

   -- Younicos is purchasing the China Unit "as is, where is, and
      with all faults";

   -- Younicos will not assume or be deemed to assume any
      liabilities of the Debtors;

   -- The Purchase Price is $80,000, payable in cash at closing;

   -- Younicos will pay for all costs of retrieving the China
      Unit from its current location in China and as well as any
      costs that may be incurred for the disposal of any related
      portion of the Assets that Buyer subsequently decides after
      purchase it does not want;

   -- Younicos' purchase is subject to higher and better bids
      submitted at or prior to the hearing on approval of this
      motion;

   -- The Board of Directors of XPI has agreed to the offer
      embodied in the Purchase Agreement, subject to court
      approval after reasonable notice and a hearing, at which
      hearing anyone else would be entitled to offer a higher
      price, potentially triggering an auction.  If a competing
      bid is made, the Debtors will request the Court conduct the
      auction in the courtroom at the hearing.

Younicos filed a limited objection to the motion, wherein Younicos
alleged that use or sale of the China Unit may infringe one or
more patents assigned to Younicos.

In its order, the Court stated that it has considered the
objection and has determined that the Debtors' sale to Younicos
constitutes a valid exercise of the Debtors' sound business
judgment, and the relief requested in the Motion is in the best
interests of the Debtors, their estates, their creditors, and
other parties-in-interest.

ZOGENIX INC: Subsidiary Acquires Brabant Pharma
-----------------------------------------------
Zogenix Europe Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Zogenix,
Inc., located in the United Kingdom, acquired Brabant Pharma
Limited, a privately-held company organized under the laws of
England and Wales, pursuant to the terms of a Sale and Purchase
Agreement, dated Oct. 24, 2014, by and among Zogenix Europe,
Zogenix, Brabant and Anthony Clarke, Richard Stewart, Ann Soenen-
Darcis, Jennifer Watson, Reyker Nominees Limited and Aquarius Life
Science Limited.

In connection with the consummation of the transactions on
Oct. 24, 2014, contemplated by the Sale and Purchase Agreement,
Zogenix Europe purchased the issued share capital of Brabant from
the Sellers and the Company agreed to guarantee the obligations,
commitments, undertakings and warranties of Zogenix Europe.
Brabant owns worldwide development and commercialization rights to
BrabafenTM, low-dose fenfluramine, for the treatment of Dravet
syndrome (also known as Severe Myoclonic Epilepsy of Infancy).
Dravet syndrome is a rare and catastrophic form of pediatric
epilepsy with life threatening consequences for patients and
current treatment options are very limited.  Brabafen has recently
received orphan drug designation in Europe and the United States
for the treatment of Dravet syndrome.

Under the terms of the Sale and Purchase Agreement, at the closing
Zogenix Europe paid to the Sellers consideration of (i) $20
million in cash (plus the $8.4 million which represents the net
cash position of Brabant at the closing), of which $2 million
will be deposited into escrow to fund potential indemnification
claims for a period of 6 months, and (ii) 11,995,202 shares of the
Company's common stock, par value $0.001 per share.  Zogenix
Europe also committed to paying up to an aggregate amount of $50
million upon the achievement of specified regulatory milestones
and $45 million upon the achievement of specified sales
milestones.  The Company has agreed to use commercially reasonable
efforts (as defined in the Sale and Purchase Agreement) to develop
and commercialize Brabafen and to achieve the milestones.

The safety and effectiveness of Brabafen has been evaluated in a
continuing, long-term, open-label, study in 15 Dravet syndrome
patients.  The average duration of treatment in the study is
currently more than 12 years, with the longest duration of
treatment at more than 26 years.  More than two-thirds (67%) of
patients were seizure free for at least a year after the latest
assessment with an average seizure free period of 5.5 years.  The
majority (87%) of patients had a greater than 75% reduction in
seizure frequency.  Brabafen was shown to be well tolerated in the
study, and treatment side effects were mild and transient for the
entire study treatment period.  There were no reports of pulmonary
hypertension and there were no deaths.  Two patients showed sub-
clinical evidence of cardiac valve thickening that was judged to
be clinically insignificant following detailed investigation by
independent cardiologists. Similar findings spontaneously resolved
in a third patient.  Based upon feedback from the U.S. Food and
Drug Administration and the European Medicines Agency, the Company
expects to initiate two Phase 3 studies (of 40 to 60 Dravet
syndrome patients per study) during the second quarter of 2015 in
the United States and Europe, with top-line results potentially
available in the first half of 2016.

In September 2012, Brabant entered into a collaboration and
license agreement with the Universities of Antwerp and Leuven in
Belgium.  Under the terms of the License Agreement, the
Universities granted Brabant an exclusive worldwide license to use
the data obtained from the study, as well as certain intellectual
property related to fenfluramine for the treatment of Dravet
syndrome.  Brabant is required to pay a mid single-digit
percentage royalty on net sales of fenfluramine or, in the case of
a sublicense of fenfluramine, a percentage in the mid-twenties of
the sub-licensing revenues.  The License Agreement terminates in
September 2020; however, upon the commencement of Phase 3 clinical
trials of fenfluramine or marketing approval by a regulatory
authority, the License Agreement will be extended until September
2045.  The License Agreement may be terminated by the Universities
if Brabant: (a) does not use commercially reasonable efforts to
(i) develop and commercialize fenfluramine for the treatment of
Dravet syndrome or related conditions stemming from infantile
epilepsy, or (ii) seek approval of fenfluramine for the treatment
of Dravet syndrome in the United States; or (b) if Brabant becomes
insolvent, will make an assignment for the benefit of creditors,
or shall have a petition in bankruptcy filed for or against it or
for any similar relief has been filed against it.  The Company can
terminate the License Agreement upon specified prior written
notice to the Universities.

Both Zogenix Europe and the Sellers agreed to customary warranties
and covenants in the Sale and Purchase Agreement.  The Sellers
agreed to indemnify Zogenix Europe for certain matters, including
breaches of warranties and covenants included in the Sale and
Purchase Agreement, up to the escrow amount, subject to limited
exceptions.

Pursuant to the Sale and Purchase Agreement, the Company has
agreed to prepare and file a registration statement on Form S-3
covering the resale of the Shares issued to the Sellers within 90
days of the closing and to use commercially reasonable efforts to
cause such registration statement to be declared effective as
promptly as practicable following the filing.

As partial consideration for the acquisition of Brabant described
above, on Oct. 24, 2014, Zogenix issued an aggregate of 11,995,202
shares of Common Stock to the Sellers in connection with the
closing of the Acquisition.

* Mark Platt Joins McGuireWoods' Dallas Office as Partner
---------------------------------------------------------
McGuireWoods on Oct. 28 expanded its capabilities in its fast-
growing Dallas office with the addition of accomplished
restructuring and insolvency attorney Mark A. Platt, who joined
the firm as a partner.

Mr. Platt, who has substantial insolvency and commercial
litigation experience, focuses on several industries, including
telecommunications, real estate and energy.  He has successfully
litigated cases for senior lenders, private equity firms and a
wide array of debtors and creditors in federal and state courts
across the country, including in Texas, Delaware, and New York.
Mr. Platt is the current co-chair of the American Bar Association
Bankruptcy and Insolvency Litigation Committee.

The addition continues the firm's Texas expansion, which included
the opening of a six-lawyer Dallas office in March.  The firm
began its expansion in Houston and Austin, where it also
established a presence for its highly regarded public affairs
group, McGuireWoods Consulting.  The Dallas office, after just
seven months in the market, has more than tripled in size to 20
lawyers.

"We are committed to Texas, and Mark is a key addition for us,"
said Akash Sethi, managing partner of the firm's Dallas office.
"He not only adds an important dimension to our litigation
practice, here and across the firm, but his experience will bring
immediate benefits to our private equity, banking and other
corporate clients.  We are delighted to welcome him to the firm."

"Mark's reputation precedes him.  He brings invaluable skill and
experience in complex business bankruptcy and commercial
litigation matters, including first-chair trial experience in
several states for domestic and international clients," said Dion
Hayes, chairman of the firm's 40-attorney Restructuring and
Insolvency Department.  "He is essential to the continued
development of our practice."

litigators from across the firm's 20 offices.  Four of
McGuireWoods' restructuring and insolvency partners are ranked by

of Pennsylvania and his law degree from the Southern Methodist
University Dedman School of Law.  The Best Lawyers in America has
listed him for five consecutive years for Insolvency and
Reorganization Law, and he has earned a spot on the Martindale-
Hubbell Texas Top Rated Lawyer List.

"McGuireWoods has a world-class insolvency practice," Mr. Platt
said.  "This is a tremendous opportunity to extend its reach to
Dallas and the Southwest.  I'm excited to join the team and look

* BPC Hosts Panel Discussion on Too-Big-To-Fail Policy
------------------------------------------------------
The Bipartisan Policy Center's Financial Regulatory Reform
Initiative (FRRI) hosted a panel discussion on Oct. 28 with
leading banking experts to break down the arguments for and
against breaking up big banks.  This public event coincides with
the release of a new white paper exploring the same topic, which
was authored by the two FRRI co-chairs, Martin Neil Baily and
Phillip L. Swagel, as well as Douglas J. Elliott, a fellow in
Economic Studies at The Brookings Institution.

The panel discussion featured the co-authors alongside top
policymakers and banking experts with a range of perspectives on
critical policy questions, such as:

What are the costs, benefits and consequences of breaking up big
banks?

Would breaking up the banks really work?
What would it mean for consumers, the financial system and the
broader economy?

The new report, The Big Bank Theory: Breaking Down the Breakup
Arguments, considers whether the sweeping set of financial reforms
put in place by the Dodd-Frank Act have gone far enough to address
concerns that our country's largest financial institutions remain
too-big-to-fail (TBTF).  It also weighs the costs and benefits of
policy options that have attracted bipartisan attention, including
proposals to formally break up large financial institutions or
radically reduce their size.  "Examining these questions is
crucial to helping policymakers address important concerns arising
from the financial crisis," said Mr. Swagel, an FRRI co-chair and
professor at the University of Maryland School of Public Policy.

Among the report's key conclusions:

Dodd-Frank has already made considerable progress in addressing
TBTF.  Higher capital standards and enhanced oversight, as well as
new legal authority to resolve large institutions, have sharply
lowered market expectations of future government rescues.
Breaking up the country's largest financial institutions would
impose significant costs to the economy.  Recent research points
to significant economies of scale and scope that promote
innovation and economic growth at large financial institutions.
The paper also highlights new consumer research on consumer
banking behavior in the wake of the crisis, showing that the
largest banks significantly increased their number of customer
accounts even as a wave of anti-bank populism gripped the nation.
Breaking up a big bank would be hard to do.  Policymakers would
need to define the "right" criteria as well as manage significant
transition costs of any break-up proposal.
Read the Report

The new report finds that there is little reason to believe that
breaking up the largest institutions would reduce risks in the
financial system over the long-term and may, in fact, exacerbate
them.  "Breaking up an institution with $2 trillion in assets
would not result in many easy-to-resolve small institutions," said
Mr. Elliott.  "Rather, it would likely result in a smaller number
of successor entities, engaged in similar activities as their
larger predecessor, but still operating at an impressive scale."

Instead, the report concludes that the measures established by
Dodd-Frank serve as a "middle-ground approach," striking a balance
between many of the core objectives of the proposals to break-up
big banks and a return to the pre-crisis status quo.  "These
reforms reduce the likelihood of a big bank failing, limit moral
hazard, and reduce the risk of future taxpayer bailouts," said
Mr. Baily, an FRRI co-chair and senior fellow and director of the
Business and Public Policy Initiative at The Brookings
Institution.  "At the least, we should give them time to work
before policymakers consider more radical changes."

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.
