                            *********

22ND CENTURY: Says Market Response to Red Sun and Magic Tremendous
------------------------------------------------------------------
At 22nd Century Group, Inc.'s annual meeting of shareholders held
on April 25, 2015:

    * Both Henry Sicignano III, who is also currently the CEO and
president, and Richard M. Sanders were re-elected as Class I
Directors with terms expiring in 2018.

    * The advisory resolution on executive compensation was
approved.

    * Freed Maxick CPAs, PC was ratified as the Company's
independent registered certified public accounting firm for 2015.

At the Meeting, Henry Sicignano III, president and CEO, addressed
the following topics:

   -- Modified Risk/FDA:  The Company intends to submit an
application for its very low
nicotine cigarette (Brand A) to the FDA this summer.  Gaining
Modified Risk approval for the Company's low tar-to-nicotine ratio
cigarette (Brand B) is also a priority.  However, since applying
for Brand B Modified Risk approval will require a substantially
greater investment in time and money, the Company plans to submit a
Brand B application in 2016.

   -- X-22: The Company recently completed visits to Japan and
Europe where management met with potential joint venture partners
for X-22, the Company's smoking cessation aid in development.

   -- RED SUN: In the first three months on the U.S. market, the
Company secured distribution for RED SUN premium cigarettes in
approximately 200-300 retail stores in more than 40 states.
Management expects to announce the signing of additional
distributors and regional retail store groups in the coming months.


    -- MAGIC: The Company recently launched its 0.0 mg MAGIC 0
cigarettes in Europe.  The Company is marketing two styles of MAGIC
cigarettes: MAGIC 0 with 95% less nicotine than conventional brands
and MAGIC 2 which features an 80% reduction in nicotine.  MAGIC
cigarettes are currently available in approximately 900
state-licensed tobacco stores in Spain. The store count is expected
to top 2,500 in Spain by the end of 2015.  Further, the Company
expects distribution of MAGIC cigarettes to reach several
additional European countries in the next several months.

    -- China: It remains an important priority for the Company to
introduce 22nd Century’s proprietary tobacco to China.  Despite
significant regulatory hurdles, the Company continues to make
progress in this effort.

    -- Contract Manufacturing: NASCO Products LLC, the Company's
cigarette manufacturing subsidiary located in Mocksville, North
Carolina, continues to produce Smoker Friendly, Cigar Cartel, and
other private label brands in addition to 22nd Century's
proprietary brands.

    -- Increased Investor Relations Outreach: Given the exciting
opportunities and events underway at the Company, management
expects to increase its investor relations activities in the coming
months.  Mr. Sicignano is scheduled to attend several investor
conferences, including the upcoming Marcum Conference in New York
City in late May and the LD Micro conference in Los Angeles in
June, and will conduct non-deal investor road shows in select
regions during the balance of 2015.  Mr. Sicignano is also looking
forward to media opportunities, such as his interview today on Fox
Business' Stuart Varney show.

Mr. Sicignano noted, "We are very pleased to report to our
shareholders the substantial progress underway at 22nd Century
Group.  It is an exciting time for all of us; the market response
to RED SUN and MAGIC has been tremendous.  We look forward to
developing these exciting new brands."

ACG CREDIT: Gellert Scali Withdraws Case Conversion Request
-----------------------------------------------------------
Michael G. Busenkell, Esq., attorney at Gellert Scali Busenkell &
Brown LLC, withdrew a motion filed in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the District of Delaware, seeking to convert the Chapter 11 case of
ACG Credit Company II LLC to a liquidation in Chapter 7.

In Mr. Busenkell's motion, he told the Court that the Debtor's
principal, Ian Peck, and the Debtor's non-debtor affiliate has been
unable (or unwilling) to pay the fees and expenses owed to the firm
pursuant to the compensation orders of the Court, the Debtor must
be deemed administratively insolvent and unlikely to rehabilitate
itself.  Accordingly, the case must be converted to a case under
chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code, he said.

According to Mr. Busenkell, the firm has filed and served its
monthly fee applications for November and December, 2014 and
January 2015 and its second quarterly fee application and have
received no objections.  However, despite having honored the terms
of the interim comp. procedures order, the firm has not received
payment for work performed in November or December 2014, or for
January 2015, nor for the holdback payments under the second
interim fee application, which the Court authorized for payment,
despite the Law Firm's proper and persistent demands.

The latest instance of non-payment follows an unfortunately
established course under which the Debtor's professionals have
consistently waited months for payment, despite the representations
of the Debtor's principal, Ian Peck to the Court that a credit line
has been established by a non-debtor affiliate to fund such
payments, Mr. Busenkell noted.

ACG Finance Company LLC et al. objected to Mr. Busenkell's motion
to convert the Debtor's case and requested dismissal of it's case
instead.  ACG Finance said there is an absence of a reasonable
likelihood of rehabilitation of the estate.

ACG Finance pointed out The Hahn Hessen and SageCrest claims have
been eliminated by settlements.  The Debtor has few remaining
creditors and a professional claim asset with which to pay those
remaining creditors who prove to have valid claims.  Also, because
the uncertainty about the financial condition of the Debtor has
been eliminated by the settlements, it is feasible for Debtor to
adopt a plan under which its equity holder would advance cash to
pay remaining creditors in full and the newly-reorganized debtor
could pursue its litigation claims and start making loans again to
third parties.

ACG Finance retained as counsel:

ALLIED NEVADA: Has June 16 Auction of Exploration Interests
-----------------------------------------------------------
U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Mary F. Walrath in Delaware authorized Allied
Nevada Gold Corp. to auction off its portfolio of exploration
properties, letting the mining outfit embark on a two-month sale
process with a stalking horse bidder in place, Law360 reported.

According to the report, Judge Walrath blessed bid procedures for
the company's proposed sale of 75 mineral exploration interests,
establishing Clover Nevada LLC as a $17.5 million stalking horse
for the assets ahead of planned June 16 auction.

The timetable approved by Judge Walrath sets out a June 12 bid
deadline and a June 16 auction, if necessary, followed by a June 18
sale hearing, the report said.  Under the bid procedures, stalking
horse Clover Nevada would be entitled to a $350,000 break-up fee
and up to $100,000 in expense reimbursements if another suitor
prevails.

ALLY FINANCIAL: Reports First Quarter Net Income of $576 Million
----------------------------------------------------------------
Ally Financial Inc. reported net income of $576 million, and $1.06
per diluted common share, for the first quarter of 2015, compared
to net income of $177 million, and $0.23 per diluted common share,
in the prior quarter, and net income of $227 million, and $0.33 per
diluted common share, for the first quarter of 2014.  The company
reported core pre-tax income, excluding repositioning items
entirely related to the early extinguishment of high-cost legacy
debt, of $490 million in the first quarter of 2015, compared to
$396 million in the prior quarter and $339 million in the
comparable prior year period.  The company reported core pre-tax
income of $299 million for the quarter.  Adjusted earnings per
diluted common share for the quarter were $0.52, compared to $0.40
for the previous quarter and $0.34 for the comparable prior year
period.

Strong operating results in the Dealer Financial Services franchise
continued with pre-tax income totaling $409 million for the
quarter.  Auto financing originations for the quarter remained
strong and grew to $9.8 billion, increasing 9 percent from the
previous quarter and 7 percent year-over-year, driven by strong
performance in the Growth and Chrysler channels.  Excluding GM
lease originations, consumer auto originations increased 27 percent
year-over-year.  Moreover, new and used originations from Growth
dealers grew 54 percent compared to the prior year period.

Also contributing to total results was a previously disclosed
after-tax gain of approximately $400 million in discontinued
operations from the completed sale of the Chinese joint venture in
January, which was partially offset by expenses from debt
repurchases, as the company continued to execute its liability
management program to reduce high-cost legacy debt.  As a result of
this continued effort, as well as increased retail deposits which
grew 12 percent year-over-year, Ally's cost of funds decreased 21
basis points from the prior year period.

"First quarter results demonstrate that our efforts to diversify
and expand our leading franchises, while improving shareholder
returns, are already making significant inroads," said Ally Chief
Executive Officer Jeffrey J. Brown.  "Ally continued to post strong
originations totaling $9.8 billion for the quarter, with Growth
channel originations increasing nearly 55 percent in the past year.
Moreover, when excluding GM leasing, originations are up 27
percent, which is a testament to the strength of our business model
and our reach in the marketplace."

The company also surpassed $50 billion in retail deposits during
the quarter, with balances increasing 12 percent year-over-year and
45,000 new deposit customers joining the Ally family during the
first quarter."

Brown concluded, "Looking ahead, we are intensely focused on
thoughtfully expanding our portfolio of products and services to
drive revenue and returns.  The auto finance business remains at
the heart of what we do, and we will continue to grow that
business.  Meanwhile, Ally is uniquely positioned -- with its
incredibly powerful brand, a strong culture of innovation and
customer focus, and a nimble and flexible business model -- to
capitalize on the future of retail banking."

Liquidity and Capital

Highlights

   * Received non-objection to Comprehensive Capital Analysis and
     Review (CCAR) submission.
     
   * Began capital structure rationalization through redemption of

     $1.3 billion of Series G preferred securities.
     
   * Cost of funds improved 21 basis points year-over-year.
     
   * Net interest margin, excluding OID, improved 12 basis points
     during the quarter.
     
   * Improved preliminary first quarter 2015 capital ratios year-
     over-year, with Basel III Common Equity Tier 1 capital2 at
     10.4 percent on a fully phased-in basis.
    
In the first quarter, Ally received a non-objection on its capital
plan from the Federal Reserve, including the proposed capital
actions contained in its 2015 CCAR submission.  As a result, the
company began activities to rationalize Ally's capital structure
and drive improved financial performance in the future by redeeming
$1.3 billion in Series G preferred securities in April. The company
also plans to eliminate additional preferred securities through the
remainder of 2015 and 2016, and will continue to repurchase
high-cost unsecured debt as part of Ally's liability management
strategy.  Separately, as part of this broader strategy, two cash
tender offers were completed in February totaling $950 million.

Ally's consolidated cash and cash equivalents increased to $7.7
billion as of March 31, 2015, from $5.6 billion at Dec. 31, 2014,
in advance of a bond repayment in April 2015.  Included in this
quarter's balance are $4.2 billion at Ally Bank and $1.3 billion at
the Insurance business.

Ally's total equity was $15.9 billion at March 31, 2015, up
compared to the end of the prior quarter.  The Company's
preliminary first quarter 2015 Basel III Common Equity Tier 1 ratio
was 10.4 percent on a fully phased-in basis, and Ally's preliminary
Tier 1 capital ratio was 13.0 percent on a fully phased-in basis,
both up due to proceeds from the Chinese joint venture transaction
and strong first quarter earnings.

Ally continued to execute a diverse funding strategy during the
first quarter of 2015.  This strategy included strong growth in
deposits, which represent approximately 46 percent of Ally's
funding portfolio, and completion of new term U.S. auto
securitizations, which totaled approximately $2.7 billion for the
quarter.  The company also completed a $1.0 billion whole loan sale
and issued $2.5 billion of unsecured debt during the quarter.
Additionally, during the quarter Ally renewed $12.5 billion in
credit facilities at both the parent company and at its banking
subsidiary, Ally Bank, with improved economic and structural
terms.

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

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

As reported by the TCR on July 16, 2014, Moody's Investors Service
affirmed the 'Ba3' corporate family and 'B1' senior unsecured
ratings of Ally Financial, Inc. and revised the outlook for the
ratings to positive from stable.  Moody's affirmed Ally's ratings
and revised its rating outlook to positive based on the company's
progress toward sustained improvements in profitability and
repayment of government assistance received during the financial
crisis.

ALTEGRITY INC: Fights to Keep Units' Docs Under Wraps
-----------------------------------------------------
Law360 reported that Altegrity Inc. told a Delaware bankruptcy
judge it would identify contractors and government clients of the
unit that vetted U.S. National Security Agency leaker Edward
Snowden but requested authority to seal similar data Dow Jones &
Co. Inc. has sought about its other businesses.

According to the report, at a hearing in Wilmington, Altegrity said
it had agreed to reveal information the media giant requested about
its soon-to-be-shuttered U.S. Investigative Services arm but would
suffer great financial harm if forced to publicize confidential
commercial information about its remaining unit.

To recall, Altegrity was hit with criticism from Dow Jones & Co.
Inc. and the U.S. Trustee's Office for filing some of its financial
information under seal.  In motions before the Delaware bankruptcy
court, both Dow Jones, publisher of the Wall Street Journal, and
the bankruptcy watchdog argued that the information Altegrity is
trying to shield from public view.

                      About Altegrity Inc.

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

Altegrity Inc. and 37 of its affiliates filed Chapter 11
Bankruptcy
petitions (Bankr. D. Del. Lease Case No. 15-10226) on Feb. 8,
2015.

Jeffrey S. Campbell signed the petitions as president and chief

------------------------------------------------------------
Law360 reported that an Ohio federal judge refused to restart a
paused malpractice suit against McDermott Will & Emery LLP over the

year to the litigation.

its directors after an employee stock ownership plan takeover.

                           *     *     *

As reported by the TCR on Feb. 14, 2013, Moody's Investors Service
has withdrawn all ratings of API Technologies, including its
'Caa1' Corporate Family Rating and negative outlook due to the
repayment of all rated debt.  On Feb. 6, 2013, API Technologies
completed a refinancing of its previously outstanding rated
bank debt.  All ratings of API have been withdrawn since the
company has no rated debt outstanding.

In the Feb. 22, 2013, edition of the TCR, Standard & Poor's
Ratings Services said that it lowered its corporate credit rating
on API Technologies to 'B-' from 'B'.

"The downgrade reflects weaker-than-expected credit metrics
resulting from less-than-expected improvements in operating
performance and higher debt, including a modest increase from the
recent refinancing," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Chris
Mooney.


APOLLO MEDICAL: Amends Form S-1 Registration Statement with SEC

ARABELLA EXPLORATION: Deficit, Deficiency Raise Going Concern Doubt
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Arabella Exploration, Inc., filed with the U.S. Securities and
Exchange Commission its annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal
year ended Dec. 31, 2014.

Marcum LLP expressed substantial doubt about the Company's ability
to continue as a going concern citing that the Company has had an
accumulated deficit of $4.18 million and a working capital
deficiency of $15.6 million as of Dec. 31, 2014, largely consisting
of notes payable due in less than twelve months.

The Company reported a net loss of $4.69 million on $3.41 million

ARIA ENERGY: S&P Assigns 'B' Corp. Credit Rating; Outlook Stable
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it assigned its 'B'
corporate credit rating to Aria Energy Operating LLC (Aria
Operating).  The outlook is stable.  At the same time, S&P assigned
its 'B' rating and '3' recovery rating to Aria Operating's $200
million senior secured term loan B due 2022.  The '3' recovery
rating indicates that lenders can expect meaningful (50% to 70%;
lower half of the range) recovery if a payment default occurs.

Aria Operating's ratings reflect a "weak" business risk profile and
an "aggressive" financial risk profile.  Factors that influence the
rating include the company's limited scale on a relative and
absolute basis, its dependence on two projects for more than 30% of
EBITDA, potentially aggressive growth through acquisitions, and a
limited track record.  These factors are partially balanced by Aria
Operating's largely contracted cash flows, a favorable regulatory
environment, and cost advantages of its assets.

Aria Operating focuses on developing, owning, and operating
landfill gas-to-energy projects.  The company operates three types
of projects: power, landfill gas, and operations and management
services.

"The stable outlook reflects our expectation of fairly predictable
cash flows driven by the company's highly contracted revenue coming
from long-term power purchase and gas purchase contracts," said
Standard & Poor's credit analyst Geoffrey Mrema.

In terms of credit measures, S&P expects funds from operations to
debt at about 14.5% in 2015, improving to 16.5% in 2016. Similarly,
S&P expects total debt to EBITDA to be in the mid–to-high 4x
range, improving to 4.2x in 2016.


ARMORED AUTOGROUP: S&P Puts 'B-' CCR on CreditWatch Positive
------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services placed all of its ratings,
including its 'B-' corporate credit ratings, on Danbury,
Conn.–based Armored AutoGroup Inc. and Garland, Texas–based IDQ
Holdings Inc. on CreditWatch with positive implications.

The CreditWatch placement follows Spectrum Brands' announcement
that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Armored
AutoGroup and IDQ Holdings for $1.4 billion in cash and assumed
debt.  Both companies' credit profile will likely improve if the
proposed acquisition by the larger and financially stronger
Spectrum Brands occurs.

S&P assess Armored AutoGroup and IDQ Holdings' business and
financial risk profiles as "vulnerable" and "highly leveraged,"
respectively, compared to "fair" and "aggressive," respectively,
for Spectrum Brands.

If the transaction is completed, S&P would likely raise its ratings
on Armored AutoGroup and IDQ Holdings to the same level as the
post-closing rating on Spectrum Brands.  Although S&P will continue
to assess the impact of the proposed transaction on Spectrum
Brands, it's currently unlikely S&P will lower its ratings on
Spectrum Brands as a result of the transaction. However, if S&P was
to lower the corporate credit rating on Spectrum Brands, it would
be limited to one notch.  S&P would then likely withdraw all of the
Armored AutoGroup and IDQ Holdings ratings.

Alternatively, if the proposed transaction does not close, S&P
would likely affirm its ratings on both Armored AutoGroup and IDQ
Holdings, and remove them from CreditWatch.


ARMTEC HOLDINGS: Files for Bankruptcy to Complete Sale
------------------------------------------------------
Patrick Fitzgerald, writing for Daily Bankruptcy Review, reported
that Canada's Armtec Holdings Ltd., which builds and supplies
materials for large public and commercial infrastructure projects,
filed for protection from creditors in order to sell is business to
Brookfield Capital Partners.

According to the report, Armtec sought protection from creditors on
April 29 in Ontario Superior Court under Canada's Companies
Creditors Arrangement Act, a restructuring process akin to Chapter
11 bankruptcy in the U.S.


ARMTEC HOLDINGS: S&P Lowers Corporate Credit Rating to 'D'
----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it lowered its long-term
corporate credit rating on Concord, Ont.-based Armtec Holdings Ltd.
to 'D' (default) from 'SD' (selective default).

The downgrade is in response to Armtec's announcement that it has
filed for creditor protection under the Companies' Creditors
Arrangement Act (CCAA) in Ontario.

Standard & Poor's will likely withdraw its ratings on Armtec within
30 days.



ASR 2401: Gets Sixth Interim Order to Use Cash Collateral
---------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Letitia Z. Paul of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Southern District of Texas issued a sixth interim order authorizing
ASR 2401 Fountainview LLC and ASR 2401 Fountainview LP to use cash
collateral of JPMCC 2006-LDP7 Office 2401 LLC, as noteholder,
pursuant to an operating budget.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Feb. 16, 2015,
JPMCC 2006-LDP7, the holder of secured claims against the Debtors,
asked Judge Paul to prohibit unauthorized use of cash collateral
because the Debtor failed to provide a proposed budget for cash
collateral use during January 2015 or thereafter.  However, upon
assurance from Debtors' counsel that the Debtors would soon provide
a new budget, the parties announced to the Court that they would
work to submit a proposed form of agreed fourth interim cash
collateral order, along with an agreed budget governing future cash
collateral use.

The sixth interim order permitted the Debtor to use cash collateral
solely to pay expenses for the period of April 1, 2015, through and
including April 30, 2015.  A full-text copy of the sixth interim
order and operating budget is available for free at

C1 INVESTMENT: S&P Affirms 'B' CCR; Outlook Stable
--------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it affirmed its 'B'
corporate credit rating on Eagan, Minn.-based C1 Investment Corp.
The rating outlook is stable.

At the same time, S&P affirmed its 'B' issue-level rating on the
company's $240 million first-lien term loan (including the $50
million incremental issuance).  The recovery rating remains '3',
indicating S&P's expectation for meaningful recovery (50%-70%;
lower half of the range) of principal in the event of payment
default.  S&P also affirmed its 'CCC+' issue-level rating on the
company's $90 million second-lien term loan.  The recovery rating
remains '6'.  The company is issuing the incremental term loan to
fund two tuck-in system integrator acquisitions.

"Our corporate credit rating on C1 Investment reflects our view of
the company's business risk profile as 'weak' and its financial
risk profile as 'highly leveraged,'" said Standard & Poor's credit
analyst Kenneth Fleming.

"Our assessments incorporate the company's limited scale in a
competitive, fragmented industry and its financial sponsor
ownership, which we believe will preclude sustained deleveraging,"
he added.

The stable outlook reflects S&P's expectation that the company will
sustain its operating trends and improve free cash flow
generation.

S&P could lower the rating if the company's profitability
deteriorates due to increased competition or because of
debt-financed acquisitions or dividends, such that leverage is
sustained in the mid-6x area or free operating cash flow to debt
declines below $8 million.

The likelihood of an upgrade is constrained by the company's
limited product diversity and S&P's expectation that even if
leverage declines below the 5.0x area, the company will likely not
sustain this level, given its private equity ownership structure.



CHASSIX HOLDINGS: Ch. 11 Plan Goes to June 30 Confirmation Hearing
------------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Michael E. Wiles of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Southern District of New York will convene a hearing on June 30,
2015, at 10:00 a.m. (Eastern Time) to consider confirmation of the
Chapter 11 plan of reorganization of Chassix Holdings, Inc., and
its debtor affiliates.

The Plan Objection Deadline and the Voting Deadline is set as June
19.  The deadline for the Debtors and any other party-in-interest
to file and serve any replies or an omnibus reply to any objections
to confirmation is June 26.

Judge Wiles approved the disclosure statement explaining the
Debtors' Plan on April 24 and overruled all objections to the
Proposed Disclosure Statement that have not been withdrawn or
resolved as provided for in the record of the April 23 Disclosure
Statement Hearing.

On April 24, the Debtors filed a Second Amended Plan and disclosure
statement incorporating or responding to comments by the Court and
other revisions made at the April 23 hearing.  Tiffany Kary,
writing for Bloomberg News, approved the Disclosure Statement
following hours of debate and negotiation among the Official
Committee of Unsecured Creditors and the U.S. Trustee, both of
which protested the releases from potential lawsuits that the Plan
would give to billionaire Tom Gores’s Beverly Hills,
California-based Platinum Equity.

A blacklined version of the Plan dated April 24 is available at
http://bankrupt.com/misc/CHASSIXplan0424.pdf

Chassix said in a press statement: "[T]he Plan is supported by
approximately 80% of the Company's unsecured bondholders and
approximately 73% of its senior secured bondholders, its existing
sponsor, and all of the Company's largest customers. Among other
things, the Plan provides for a debt-for-equity swap that will
significantly reduce the Company's outstanding bond debt and debt
payment obligations." Mark Allan, Chassix's chief executive officer
comments, "We already have significant support of the Plan from our
bondholders, existing sponsor and all of our largest customers,
which combined with the assurances that the necessary exit
financing will be available to Chassix, make us confident in our
ability to emerge from Chapter 11 in the Summer of 2015."

2014, the Debtors had $833 million in assets and $784 million in
liabilities on a consolidated basis.

Chassix Holdings, Inc., et al., sought Chapter 11 protection
(Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Lead Case No. 15-10578) in Manhattan on March 12,
2015, with a Chapter 11 plan that was negotiated with lenders and
customers.

Chassix Holdings estimated $500 million to $1 billion in assets
and
debt.

CHRYSLER GROUP: Judge Frees TRW of Steering Defect Liability
------------------------------------------------------------
Law360 reported that global auto parts maker TRW Automotive

post-bankruptcy iteration of Chrysler.

According to the report, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Stuart M. Bernstein
granted TRW summary judgment in its adversary complaint against the
liquidation trust.

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

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

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

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

The Troubled Company Reporter, on April 10, 2015, reported that
Moody's Investors Service assigned B2 long-term senior unsecured
ratings to the proposed 144A/RegS notes to be issued by Fiat
Chrysler Automobiles N.V. (FCA or the company).

"The proceeds from the proposed bond issuances will be used for
general corporate purposes which may include funding the
redemption
of, or otherwise refinancing, outstanding senior secured notes of
FCA US LLC," Moody's said.

The TCR, on the same day, also reported that Standard & Poor's
Ratings Services said that it assigned its 'BB-' issue rating to
the proposed US$3.0 billion senior unsecured notes to be issued by
automotive manufacturer Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N.V. (FCA NV).
At
the same time, S&P assigned its recovery rating of '4′ to
the
proposed notes, reflecting its expectation of average (30%-50%)
recovery -- in the lower half of the range -- for noteholders in
the event of a payment default.


CLIFFS NATURAL: Incurs $773 Million Net Loss in First Quarter
-------------------------------------------------------------
Cliffs Natural Resources Inc. reported a net loss attributable to
its common shareholders of $773 million on $446 million of revenues
for the three months ended March 31, 2015, compared with a net loss
attributable to shareholders of $83.1 million on $616 million of
revenue for the same period in 2014.

As of March 31, 2015, the Company had $2.7 billion in total assets,
$4.48 billion in total liabilities, and a $1.78 billion total
deficit.

Lourenco Goncalves, Cliffs' Chairman, president and chief executive
officer, said, "Cliffs has delivered another strong quarter in the
face of a challenging operating and commercial environment.  The
first quarter has confirmed the strength of our pricing structure
in the USIO business, and our ability to continue to drive costs
down in all operating segments - USIO, APIO and NAC."  Mr.
Goncalves added, "We are extremely pleased with the positive
results of the recent refinancing exercise, and we will continue to
be focused on reducing our debt and maximizing our liquidity."

Due to the usual seasonality of the business during the first
quarter, working capital adjustments drove a cash use of $236
million during the quarter.

To further supplement the Company's liquidity position, during the
quarter Cliffs successfully completed an offering of $540 million
aggregate principal amount of 8.25% Senior Secured Notes due
March 31, 2020.  From the offering of these new first lien notes,
the Company received net proceeds, after the initial purchasers'
discounts and the payment of fees and expenses, of approximately
$491 million.

At the end of first quarter of 2015, Cliffs had net debt of $2.5
billion, compared with $2.9 billion of net debt at the end of the
first quarter of 2014.  There was nothing drawn on the Company's
new asset-based lending facility at the end of the first quarter of
2015.  Such reduction in net debt was a consequence of several
actions including previously-announced exchange offers and
open-market bond repurchases.

Capital expenditures during the quarter were $16 million, an 85
percent decrease compared to $103 million in first quarter of 2014.
This includes capital expenditures related to North American Coal.
Cliffs also reported depreciation, depletion and amortization of
$33 million in the first quarter of 2015.

restructuring proceedings in Montreal, Quebec, under the Companies'
Creditors Arrangement Act (Canada).  The initial CCAA order will
address the Bloom Lake Group's immediate liquidity issues and

As reported by the TCR on Feb. 3, 2015, Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services said it lowered its corporate credit rating on Cliffs
Natural Resources Inc. to 'B' from 'BB-'.  The downgrade of
Cleveland-based Cliffs Natural Resources is driven by a revision
of the company's financial risk profile to "highly leveraged" from
"aggressive" as a result of S&P's lowered iron ore price
assumptions.  The 24% cut to $65 per metric ton marked the
third downward revision since early 2014, when S&P's forecast
prices were more than $100 per metric ton.

The TCR reported in March 2015 that Moody's Investors Service
downgraded Cliffs Natural Resources Inc. Corporate Family Rating
and Probability of Default Rating to 'B1' and 'B1-PD'
respectively.  "The downgrade in the CFR to 'B1' reflects
expectations for a weaker performance in the Asia Pacific iron ore
(APIO) segment, which has a greater exposure to the movement of
iron ore prices in the seaborne market," said Carol Cowan, Moody's
senior vice president.

CONNEAUT LAKE: Has Until May 5 to Explain Financing of Operations
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Keith Gushard at The Meadville Tribune reports that the Hon.
Jeffrey Deller of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for Western District of
Pennsylvania has given Conneaut Lake Park until May 5, 2015, to
present details about how the Park would finance its operations
this year, or face a court-ordered sale and liquidation.

According to The Meadville Tribune, Judge Deller said at a hearing
on April 28, 2015, that nly after receiving that information at a
hearing next Tuesday at 10 a.m. will he decide if the amusement
park will be allowed more time to file its bankruptcy plan.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on April 10, 2015, the
Trustees of Conneaut Lake Park asked the Bankruptcy Court to extend
to June 30, the deadline for it to file a Chapter 11 bankruptcy
reorganization plan and to give creditors through Aug. 31, to
accept or reject the plan.  Keith Gushard at The Meadville Tribune
reported that the initial deadline of the Plan was April 3.

According to The Meadville Tribune, George T. Snyder, Esq., at
Stonecipher Law Firm, the attorney for the Park, explained that his
client is trying to line up $300,000 in working capital for the
season, including a $150,000 loan from the Economic Progress
Alliance of Crawford County.  The other $150,000 needed may come
from a loan from the Northwest Regional Planning and Development
Commission, the report says, citing officials.  The report adds
that the Commission is not expected to act on the loan application
request until a May 7, 2015 meeting.

Mr. Snyder told Judge Deller during the April 28 hearing that the
Trustees didn't have commitment letters for the financing to
present yet, The Meadville Tribune relates.

CONSTAR INT'L: Debtor Has May 12 Deadline to Remove Suits
---------------------------------------------------------
U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Christopher Sontchi has given Capsule
International Holdings LLC, formerly known as Constar International
Holdings LLC, until May 12, 2015, to file notices of removal of
lawsuits involving the company and its affiliates.

                   About Constar International

Privately held Constar International Holdings and nine affiliated
debtors (nka Capsule International Holdings, et al.) filed for
Chapter 11 protection (Bankr. D. Del. Lead Case No. 13-13281) on
Dec. 19, 2013.

Constar, which manufactures plastic containers, is represented by
Michael J. Sage, Esq., Brian E. Greer, Esq., Stephen M. Wolpert,
Esq., and Janet Bollinger Doherty, Esq., at Dechert LLP; and
Robert S. Brady, Esq., and Sean T. Greecher, Esq., at Young Conaway
Stargatt & Taylor, LLP.  Prime Clerk LLC serves as the Debtors'
claims and noticing agent, and administrative advisor.  Lincoln
Partners Advisors LLC serves as the Debtors' financial advisor.

Judge Christopher S. Sontchi oversees the 2013 case.

This is Constar International's third bankruptcy.  Constar first
filed for Chapter 11 protection (Bankr. D. Del. Lead Case No.
08-13432) in December 2008, with a pre-negotiated Chapter 11 Plan
and emerged from bankruptcy in May 2009.  Constar and its
affiliates returned to Chapter 11 protection (Bankr. D. Del. Case
No. 11-10109) on Jan. 11, 2011, with a pre-negotiated Chapter 11
plan and emerged from bankruptcy in June 2011.

The new petition listed assets worth less than $100 million
Against $123 million on three layers of secured debt.

Attorneys at Brown Rudnick LLP represent the official committee of
unsecured creditors.  The Committee retained Alvarez & Marsal
North America LLC as its financial advisor.

Counsel to Wells Fargo Capital Finance, LLC, the revolving loan
agent, is Andrew M. Kramer, Esq., at Otterbourg P.C.

On Feb. 10, 2014, the Bankruptcy Court authorized Constar to sell
certain assets to Plastipak Packaging, Inc., a global manufacturer
of rigid plastic packaging.  The Court determined that Plastipak's
$102,450,000 offer for the Debtors' U.S. assets bested the offers
from Amcor Rigid Plastics USA, Inc., and Envases Universales De
Mexico S.A.P.I. De C.V. during a Feb. 6 auction.

Separately, the Court authorized Constar to sell a facility in
Havre de Grace, Maryland, to Smucker Natural Foods, Inc., for $3
million.  There was no other bidder for the Maryland facility.

The sole director of debtor Constar International U.K. Limited has
appointed Daniel Francis Butters and Nicolas Guy Edwards of
Deloitte LLP as administrators.  The U.K. Administration
Proceeding follows the closing of the sale of the U.K. assets to
Sherburn Acquisition Limited.  The Delaware Bankruptcy Judge
authorized the U.S. Debtors to sell the U.K. Assets to Sherburn for
GBP3,512,727, (or US$7,046,000), less the deposit in the sum of
US$1,250,000.

Secured lender Black Diamond Commercial Finance, LLC, as DIP note
agent, and Wells Fargo Capital Finance, LLC, as DIP revolving
agent and agent under the revolving loan facility, consented to the
administration of Constar U.K. and the appointment of the Joint
Administrators.

In view of the asset sales in the U.S. and the U.K., the Debtors
changed their corporate trade names -- and with the Bankruptcy
Court's consent, their bankruptcy case caption -- to Capsule Group
Holdings, Inc.; Capsule Intermediate Holdings, Inc.; Capsule
Group, Inc.; Capsule International LLC; Capsule DE I, Inc.; Capsule
DE II, Inc.; Capsule PA, Inc.; Capsule Foreign Holdings, Inc.; and
Capsule International U.K. Limited (Foreign).


CRUNCHIES FOOD: May 6 Hearing on Liquidating Plan Disclosures
-------------------------------------------------------------
Crunchies Food Company and its official committee of unsecured
creditors are proposing a Chapter 11 liquidating plan that
contemplates the creation of a liquidation trust that will
liquidate the remaining assets, make distributions to creditors and
pursue causes of action.

Crunchies in September 2014 sold substantially all assets to
Chaucer Foods Ltd, for $3,630,000, comprised of a credit bid and
$350,000 in cash following a court-sanctioned sale process.
Ultimately, the Debtor received $300,000 in cash from the sale
proceeds, as $50,000 of the cash component of the sale proceeds was
set aside for the cure of certain executory contracts.

The Debtor will seek approval of the disclosure statement
explaining the terms of the Plan at a hearing on May 6, 2015, at
10:00 a.m.

The Debtor believes that the liquidating trust assets will be
sufficient to pay all administrative expense claims (except for,
possibly, the professional fee claims, who have agreed to different
treatment), priority tax claims, priority non-tax claims (Class 1),
miscellaneous secured claims (Classes 2 through 6 claims), and the
costs and expenses of administration of the Liquidating Trust after
the Effective Date.

The Debtor also believes that there will be funds available for
distribution to holders of general unsecured claims, the amounts of
which distributions will be contingent on the Liquidating trustee's
successful pursuit of the causes of action.

The Debtor is still in the process of evaluating all causes of
action that could be pursued for the benefit of the estate and/or
the liquidating trust.  The Debtor has not concluded its
investigation into all of the causes of action and has not
identified a cause of action in the Plan.

The Debtor believes that holders of Class 7 Claims likely would not
receive any distribution in a chapter 7 liquidation based on the
cash held by the Debtor, as it is insufficient to pay creditors of
a higher liquidation priority.

The Liquidating Trustee will not reserve or utilize more than
$25,000 in the aggregate for the expenses of the liquidating trust
until all professional fee claims allowed by the Bankruptcy Court
have been paid in full.  On the effective date of the Plan, Peter
Kravitz will be appointed as the liquidating trustee.

The Liquidating Trustee will be able to pursue the Causes of Action
in a cost-effective manner, while in a chapter 7 the Debtor's
estate would be burdened with an additional layer of administrative
expense associated with the appointment of a chapter 7 trustee, and
retention of professionals attendant thereto.

DETROIT, MI: Governor Signs Bill to Aid City Bond Sale
------------------------------------------------------
Reuters reported that Michigan Governor Rick Snyder signed into law
a bill aimed at reducing interest rate costs for an upcoming
Detroit bond sale.

According to the report, Detroit privately placed $275 million of
variable-rate bonds with Barclays Capital to finance its Dec. 10
exit from the biggest-ever municipal bankruptcy.  As part of the
city's U.S. Bankruptcy Court-approved plan, that debt is due to be
sold in the U.S. municipal market in a fixed-rate mode by May 9,
the report related.

The new law boosts security for the bonds by placing a specific
statutory lien on Detroit income tax revenue pledged to pay off the
debt, the report said.

                   About the City of Detroit

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

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

Michigan Governor Rick Snyder authorized the bankruptcy filing.

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

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

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

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

Babette Ceccotti, Esq., at Cohen, Weiss & Simon LLP, is
representing the United Automobile, Aerospace and Agricultural
Implement Workers of America.

A nine-member official committee of retired workers appointed in
the case is represented by Dentons US LLP.  Lazard Freres & Co. LLC
serves as the Retiree Committee's financial advisor.

Detroit filed a notice that the effective date of its
bankruptcy-exit plan occurred on Dec. 10, 2014.  Judge Steven
Rhodes on Nov. 12, 2014, entered an order confirming the Eighth
Amended Plan for the Adjustment of Debts of the City of Detroit.

Thomas Tucker, a federal bankruptcy judge since 2003, took over
Detroit's landmark bankruptcy case following the retirement of
Judge Rhodes.


DPX HOLDINGS: S&P Assigns 'CCC+' Rating on $550MM Sr. Unsec. Notes
------------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its 'CCC+' senior
unsecured issue-level rating and '6' recovery rating to JLL/Delta
Dutch Pledgeco B.V.'s proposed $550 million senior unsecured
holding company notes due 2020.  S&P's ratings and outlook on the
operating company, Durham, N.C.-based pharmaceutical contract
services provider DPx Holdings B.V. (B/Stable/--), remain
unchanged.

Proceeds from the issuance will be used mainly to fund a dividend
to its sponsor owners.  While the transaction increases adjusted
leverage to the mid-7x area from roughly 5.7x leverage S&P had
projected for 2015.  The '6' recovery rating indicates an expected
negligible recovery (0% to 10%) in the event of a default, given
that the debt will be subordinated to the existing debt at the
operating company.

The aforementioned transaction is consistent S&P's assessment of
DPx's financial risk profile as "highly leveraged" and S&P expects
the DPx will continue to remain aggressive over the near term in
pursuing moderate-sized tuck-in acquisitions that will further
strengthen and broaden its drug manufacturing and development
services.  However, in S&P's assessment the increase in leverage is
tempered by the company's improving EBITDA margin and cash flow
generation, its positioning as a market leader in two of its
existing major market segments (contract manufacturing [CMO] and
pharmaceutical development services), the relative stability and
visibility of the CMO industry, and the company's well-established
customer relationships.  Together, these factors continue to
support S&P's assessment of a "fair" business risk profile.

DS HEALTHCARE: Reports $1.31 Million Net Loss in 2014
-----------------------------------------------------
DS Healthcare Group, Inc., reported a net loss of $1.31 million on
$13.4 million of revenue for the year ended Dec. 31, 2014, compared
to a net loss of $3.23 million on $13.7 million of revenue in the
same period in 2013.

Marcum LLP expressed substantial doubt about the Company's ability
to continue as a going concern citing that the Company has suffered
recurring losses from operations.

The Company's balance sheet at Dec. 31, 2014, showed $8.6 million
in total assets, $3.46 million in total liabilities, and
stockholders' equity of $5.14 million.

A copy of the Form 10-K filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange
Commission is available at:

Pompano Beach, Fla.-based DS Healthcare Group, Inc., and its
subsidiaries develop products for skin care and personal care
needs.

The Company reported a net loss of $3.6 million on $11.2 million
of net revenue in 2012, compared with a net loss of $980,892 on
$9.7 million of net revenue in 2011.



DYCOM INDUSTRIES: S&P Lowers Rating on $277.5MM Sr. Notes to BB-
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its issue-level rating
on Dycom Industries Inc.'s (Dycom) $277.5 million senior
subordinated notes due 2021 to 'BB-' from 'BB' and revised the
recovery rating on the notes to '5' from '4'.  The '5' recovery
rating indicates S&P's expectation of modest (10%-30%; upper half
of the range) recovery in the event of a default.  S&P is
maintaining its 'BB' corporate credit rating and stable outlook on
Dycom.

Dycom's subsidiary, Dycom Investments Inc., is the borrower on the
notes.  S&P revised the recovery rating based on the company's
recent amendment and add-on to its senior secured credit facility
(not rated).  As a result of the additional senior secured debt in
the company's capital structure, S&P revised its estimated recovery
on the notes.  The company increased the size of its revolving
credit facility to $450 million from $275 million and increased the
size of its term loan facility to $150 million from $109 million as
of Jan. 24, 2015.  The maturity dates on both facilities were
extended to April 24, 2020.

The rating on Dycom reflects S&P's view that company will continue
to compete in large, highly fragmented, and cyclical end-markets
with steady capital investment requirements.  It also reflects
S&P's expectation that the company's debt leverage will remain at
about 2.5x, with a funds from operations (FFO)-to-debt ratio
approaching 30%.

RECOVERY ANALYSIS

Key analytical factors:

Given Dycom's position as a specialty engineering and construction
contractor competing in the cyclical telecommunications end-market,
S&P's distressed scenario envisions a period in which delays and
outright cancelations of cable- and telecom-related capital
spending programs abound and Dycom's key customers reduce their
capital expenditure budgets in line with the broader industry.
S&P's analysis further assumes that the revolver is 85% drawn; the
margin on the revolver and term loan increases by 125 basis points
(bps), reflecting higher borrowing costs from credit deterioration
simulated in S&P's scenario; and EBITDA declines by approximately
44% from fiscal-year 2014 levels at default and EBITDA at emergence
is estimated at $105 million.  S&P has valued the company on a
going concern basis using a 5x multiple of its projected emergence
EBITDA.

Simulated Default and Valuation Assumptions:

   -- Simulated year of default: 2020
   -- EBITDA at emergence: $105 mil.
   -- EBITDA multiple: 5x

Simplified Waterfall:
   -- Net enterprise value (after 5% admin. costs): $499 mil.
   -- Senior secured claims: $420 mil.
      --Recovery expectations: Not applicable
   -- Total value available to subordinated debt: $70 mil.
   -- Senior subordinated claims: $287 mil.
      --Recovery expectations: 10%-30%, high end of the range
Note: All debt amounts include six months of prepetition interest.

ENDEAVOUR INT'L: Scraps Bankruptcy Plan Amid Diving Oil Prices
--------------------------------------------------------------
Peg Brickley, writing for Daily Bankruptcy Review, reported that
oil and gas developer Endeavour International Corp. couldn't
reassemble the pieces of a restructuring pact shattered by diving
oil prices, so it is looking for a buyer of its U.S. operations.

According to the DBR report, papers filed in the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court in Delaware, the company says it is trying to keep the bulk
of its business, oil and gas in the North Sea, from a similar
fate.

As previously reported by The Troubled Company Reporter, the
Debtors' counsel, Zachary I. Shapiro, Esq., at Richards, Layton &
Finger, P.A., in Wilmington, Delaware, told the Bankruptcy Court
that the Debtors sought to delay confirmation of their Plan in
light of the continuing drop in oil and gas prices as the Debtors'
consensual restructuring agreement with creditors was developed in
an industry environment where oil prices had remained relatively
stable for the past for years.

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

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

As of Dec. 31, 2013, EFH Corp. reported assets of $36.4 billion in

ENERGY FUTURE: Seeks to Knock Out $431M Make-Whole Bid
------------------------------------------------------
Law360 reported that Energy Future Holdings Corp. strove to end its
long-running battle with senior noteholders over $431 million in
make-whole premiums, urging a Delaware bankruptcy judge to reject
the bondholders' attempt to lift the automatic stay and revive the
asserted penalty for early repayment.

According to the report, wrapping up a three-day trial in
Wilmington, EFH argued that indenture trustee Delaware Trust Co.
lacks cause to lift the automatic stay and override a provision
that freed the power giant from penalties for paying off $4 billion
first-lien notes.

As previously reported by The Troubled Company Reporter, EFH
creditors filed a trial brief urging the court to modify the
bankruptcy stay so that a key date no longer triggers the
penalties.  In March, EFH was found to be not liable for a penalty
of two-thirds of a billion dollars for early repayment of $4
billion in senior bonds.

EFH and the senior bondholders had long clashed in Delaware
federal
court over whether the company's decision to repay $4 billion in
senior bonds entitled those investors to sizable make-whole
premiums.  U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Christopher Sontchi said that his
reading of the contract didn't require them.

"The plain language of the indenture does not require payment of an
applicable premium upon a repayment of the notes, following an
acceleration ... arising from a default for the commencement of
'proceeding to be adjudicated bankrupt or insolvent,'" Judge
Christopher Sontchi in Delaware said, clarifying that the
bankruptcy "was not an intentional default."

The adversary suit is CSC Trust Co. of Delaware v. Energy Future
Intermediate Holdings LLC et al., case number 1:14-ap-50363 (Bankr.
D. Del.).

ENERGY FUTURE: Unsecured Creditors Demand Oncor Bid Access
----------------------------------------------------------
Law360 reported that unsecured creditors to Energy Future Holdings
Corp. moved to force the disclosure of bids for the bankrupt power
giant's treasured stake in nondebtor Oncor Electric Delivery Co.
LLC, citing an "information asymmetry" they say undercuts their
negotiating position.

According to Law360, the request made by a court-appointed
committee of EFH unsecured creditors argued that the Debtor's
restructuring professionals should not be allowed to withhold
information about the ongoing bidding war for Oncor, a Texas-based
power distributor in which the Debtor owns an 80 percent interest.

ERIE OTTERS: To Update Court on Bids for Team on May 7
------------------------------------------------------
Ed Palattella, writing for GoErie.com, reports that the U.S.
Bankruptcy Judge Thomas P. Agresti will receive an update on May 7
on how many bids Erie Otters have received in preparation for a
public sale.

According to GoErie.com, the Team's owner, Sherry Bassin, is
selling the Team in U.S. Bankruptcy Court primarily to raise money
to pay off the Team's debts to the Oilers, which tried to force a
sale of the Team to recover the money.  

GoErie.com relates that the sale requires the approval of Judge
Agresti and the Ontario Hockey League, a minor creditor in the
Team's bankruptcy case that has a major administrative role.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on April 9, 2015, Ed
Palattella, writing for Erie Times-News, reported that Erie Otters
filed for bankruptcy to stop the National Hockey League's Edmonton
Oilers from forcing a sale of the Otters to collect on a $4.6
million debt.  According to the report, the Team's broker is Game
Plan Special Services LLC.


FL 6801 SPIRITS: May 20 Hearing on Full-Payment Liquidating Plan
----------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Shelley C. Chapman on May 20, 2015, at 2:00 p.m. (ET) will
convene a hearing to consider FL 6801 Spirits LLC, et al.'s
liquidating plan that proposes to pay all creditors in full and
make distributions to equity holders.

At the May 20 combined hearing, the judge will consider
confirmation of the Liquidating Plan and approval of the Disclosure
Statement.  Objections are due May 13, 2015.

The Debtors in January 2015 sold most of their assets, including
the Canyon Ranch Hotel & Spa in Miami Beach, to a Z Capital
Partners unit for $21.6 million, following a court-sanctioned
auction.  Z Capital Florida Resort, LLC, the entity created to
acquire the assets, beat rival bidders North Beach Development, LLC
and 360 Vox LLC, which opened the auction with a $12 million
offer.

The primary objective of the Plan is to provide a mechanism to
implement the liquidation of the Debtors' remaining assets,
reconciling and fixing the claims asserted against the Debtors, and
distributing the net liquidation proceeds, including the sale
proceeds, in conformity with the distribution scheme provided by
the Bankruptcy Code and prior orders of the Court.

As of the Petition Date, the Debtors' liabilities consisted
primarily of $1.67 million in obligations under a secured loan
extended by PAMI ALI LLC.  The prepetition secured obligations were
satisfied from the sale proceeds.

The Plan provides that holders of administrative claims estimated
to total $950,000, priority claims totaling $243,000, and general
unsecured claims estimated at $1,650,000 will be paid in full.
Holders of equity interests will receive any of the proceeds
remaining after payment of all claims.  No class is impaired.
Therefore, all classes are presumed to have accepted the Plan.

voluntary Chapter 11 petitions, seeking bankruptcy protection for
their condominium hotel property in Miami Beach.  The affiliates

FL Spirits' Canyon Ranch Living Hotel and Spa is a luxury

operator of the hotel, Canyon Ranch Living, is not a debtor, and
operations at the property are expected to continue without

FL Spirits and the three affiliates companies have sought joint
administration, with pleadings to be maintained at FL 6801's case
docket (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Lead Case No. 14-11691).

FL Spirits has tapped Togut, Segal & Segal LLP as general
bankruptcy counsel, Shutts & Bowen LLP as special real estate
counsel, CBRE, Inc., as real estate broker, and Prime Clerk as
claims and notice agent.

Lehman Brothers filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy (Bankr. S.D.N.Y.
Case No. 08-13555) on Sept. 15, 2008.  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.  Lehman's Chapter 11 plan became effective on March 6,
2012.


FOUR OAKS: Posts $978,000 Net Income in First Quarter
-----------------------------------------------------
Four Oaks Fincorp, Inc., the holding company for Four Oaks Bank &
Trust Company, announced the results for the first quarter ended
March 31, 2015.

The Company reported net income of $978,000 for the quarter ended
March 31, 2015, compared to $1.4 million for the same period in
2014. Net interest income increased during the first quarter of
2015 by $527,000 as compared to the same period in 2014.
Non-interest income declined when compared to first quarter 2014 as
the Company recognized one-time payments related to its exit of the
ACH third party payment processor business line.  Non-interest
expenses increased with the conversion to a new technology platform
allowing the Company to build a foundation for future growth.  The
Bank's classified assets continue to decline with classified assets
to capital ratio of 20.2% as of March 31, 2015, compared to 23.7%
at Dec. 31, 2014, and 82.2% at March 31, 2014.

The Bank remains well capitalized at March 31, 2015, and reports
total risk based capital of 14.0%, Tier 1 risk based capital of
12.7%, and a leverage ratio of 7.7%.  At Dec. 31, 2014, the Bank
had total risk based capital of 14.7%, Tier 1 risk based capital of
13.5%, and a leverage ratio of 7.2%.  At March 31, 2015, the
Company had total risk based capital of 14.2%, Tier 1 risk based
capital of 11.0%, and a leverage ratio of 6.6%, as compared to
15.0%, 11.6%, and 6.2%, respectively at Dec. 31, 2014.  Although
not significant, the decline in capital ratios for both the Bank
and Company were due to the implementation of BASEL III, which
became effective Jan. 1, 2015.

Net Interest Income and Net Interest Margin:

Net interest margin annualized for the three months ended
March 31, 2015, was 3.1% compared to 2.7% as of March 31, 2014. Net
interest income increased to $5.7 million for the three months
ended March 31, 2015, as compared to $5.2 million for the same
period in 2014, primarily due to increased investment income
coupled with declining interest expense.  Cost of funds continues
to improve as interest expense declined to $1.7 million for the
three months ended March 31, 2015, compared to $2.0 million for the
same period in 2014, due to a shift in deposit mix from time
deposits to demand, savings, and money market deposits, lower rates
on new and renewing time deposits, and declining interest expense
on long-term borrowings as a result of the $22 million pay down in
Federal Home Loan Bank borrowings during 2014.

Non-Interest Income:

Non-interest income was $1.5 million for the three months ended
March 31, 2015, compared to $2.1 million for the same period in
2014.  The decline in non-interest income was primarily due to
lower income received through ACH TPPP indemnifications as we exit
this line of business.  During the first quarter of 2015, other
non-interest income included indemnification income of $179,000
compared to $538,000 during the first quarter of 2014. In addition,
other service charges, commissions, and fees was $60,000 lower for
the three months ended March 31, 2015, as compared to the same
period in 2014 due to lower premium income received on the sale of
government guaranteed loans.

Non-Interest Expense:

Non-interest expense totaled $6.3 million for the three months
ended March 31, 2015, compared to $6 million for the same period in
2014. Salaries related expenses increased $400,000 due to personnel
additions, implementation of a restricted stock plan, and accruals
related to performance-based compensation for 2015. Professional
and consulting fees were $199,000 greater for the three months
ended March 31, 2015, as compared to the same quarter in 2014 and
other operating expenses increased $275,000 for this same period.
These increases are the result of a project to upgrade the
Company's technology platform, in partnership with its core
processor, in order to offer additional products and services for
our customers.  As asset quality continues to improve, collections
and foreclosure expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2015,
declined $308,000 and FDIC insurance premiums declined $279,000
when compared to the same period in 2014.

Balance Sheet:

Total assets were $767.2 million at March 31, 2015, compared to
$820.8 million at Dec. 31, 2014, a decline of $53.6 million.  Cash,
cash equivalents, and investments were $278.2 million at March 31,
2015, compared to $336.9 million at Dec. 31, 2014, a decrease of
$58.7 million or 17.4%.  Outstanding gross loans increased to
$458.6 million at March 31, 2015, compared to $452.3 million at
Dec. 31, 2014, as the Company began to implement a strategy of
portfolio loan growth.  Total liabilities were $724.8 million at
March 31, 2015, compared to $780.1 million at Dec. 31, 2014.  The
decline in both assets and liabilities were the result of a $48.1
million reduction in deposits as the Company exits the ACH TPPP
business line.

Total shareholders' equity increased to $42.4 million at March 31,
2015, compared to $40.7 million at Dec. 31, 2014.  This increase
resulted primarily from the net income during the first quarter, as
well as increases in accumulated other comprehensive income on the
available for sale securities portfolio.

Asset Quality:

Nonperforming loans totaled $8.9 million at March 31, 2015, a
decrease of $1.2 million compared to $10.1 million at Dec. 31,
2014.  Foreclosed assets totaled $3.3 million at March 31, 2015
compared to $3.8 million at Dec. 31, 2014, a reduction of $500,000.
Total nonperforming assets were $12.1 million or 1.6% of total
assets at March 31, 2015, as compared to $13.9 million or 1.7% of
total assets at Dec. 31, 2014.  The continued declines in
nonperforming loans and foreclosed assets were primarily the result
of continued efforts by the Company as we execute the asset
resolution plan, coupled with reduced additions to these
categories. The allowance for loan and lease losses increased
slightly during the quarter to $9.8 million as of March 31, 2015
compared to $9.4 million as of Dec. 31, 2014, due to net recoveries

FRIENDSHIP VILLAGE: Fitch Affirms 'BB-' Rating on $14.46MM Bonds
----------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed the 'BB-' rating on the revenue
refunding and improvement bond issued on behalf of Friendship
Village of Columbus (FVC), Ohio:

   -- $14,460,000 Franklin County, Ohio series 1998.

The Rating Outlook is revised to Positive from Stable.

SECURITY

The bonds are secured by a revenue pledge, first mortgage, and debt
service reserve fund.

KEY RATING DRIVERS

IMPROVED PROFITABILITY: The Positive Outlooks reflects the
continued improvements in operating profitability, with net
operating margin adjusted increasing from 5.7% in fiscal 2013 to
17.6% in fiscal 2014 and 21.3% in the six-month interim period
ending Dec. 31, 2014 (the interim period).  The improved
profitability primarily reflects continued cost management
initiatives.

MODERATE DEBT BURDEN: FVC's debt burden remains moderate with
maximum annual debt service (MADS) equal to 8.4% of revenues in
fiscal 2014.  Improved operating profitability increased debt
service coverage since fiscal 2013 when weak operating performance
resulted in a rate covenant violation.  MADS coverage increased
from 0.9x in fiscal 2013 to 2.2x in fiscal 2014 and 2.9x in the
interim period.

LIGHT ILU OCCUPANCY: Independent living unit (ILU) occupancy
remains light, decreasing from 78% in fiscal 2013 to 74% in the
interim period, reflecting increased attrition.  However, assisted
living (ALU) and skilled nursing (SNF) occupancy were solid at 97%
and 87%, respectively.

LIGHT LIQUIDITY: Despite improved absolute levels, unrestricted
liquidity remains light with 39.6% cash-to-debt and 4.0x cushion
ratio at Dec. 31, 2014.

RATING SENSITIVITY

CONTINUED STRENGTHENING OF CREDIT PROFILE: Sustained operating
profitability improvements and continued strengthening of
unrestricted liquidity metrics would likely result in positive
rating movement, pending further clarification of future capital
plans.
CREDIT PROFILE

FVC, located in Columbus, OH, operates a type-A continuing care
retirement community (CCRC) which consists of 220 ILUs, 63 ALUs,
and 80 skilled nursing beds.  Total operating revenue equaled $16.5
million in fiscal 2014.

FVC appointed a new executive director in July 2013 who
subsequently initiated operating improvement and cost management
initiatives.  Additionally, the community hired a new management
company, United Church Homes, effective Jan. 1, 2015, to assist
with continued operating improvement initiatives.  The prior
management company (Life Care Services) had managed FVC since its
inception.

IMPROVED PROFITABILITY

Operating profitability continues to improve, reflecting the new
management team's cost control initiatives.  Operating expenses
decreased 5.4% in fiscal 2014 while 6.5% revenue growth in the
interim period exceeded operating expense growth of 4.9%. Operating
ratio declined from 107.1% in fiscal 2013 to 96.1% in fiscal 2014
and 93.9% in the interim period.  Similarly, net operating margin
adjusted improved from 5.7% in fiscal 2013 to 16.6% in fiscal 2014
and 21.3% in the interim period, exceeding Fitch's 'BBB' category
median of 20.4%.

MODERATE DEBT BURDEN

FVC's debt burden remains moderate with MADS equal to 8.4% of
fiscal 2014 operating revenue comparing favorably to Fitch's 'BBB'
category median of 12.3%.  Coverage metrics have improved
significantly since fiscal 2013 when weak profitability and high
entrance fee refunds resulted in a rate covenant violation.  The
covenant violation resulted in a mandatory consultant call-in. MADS
coverage improved from 0.9x in fiscal 2013 to 2.2x in fiscal 2014
and 2.9x in the interim period, exceeding Fitch's 'BBB' category
median of 2.0x.  Additionally, revenue-only MADS coverage improved
from 0.0x in fiscal 2013 to 0.8x in fiscal 2014 and 1.2x in the
interim period.  The improved coverage reflects the community's
improved operating profitability.

LIGHT ILU OCCUPANCY

Despite the improved profitability, ILU occupancy remains light,
decreasing from 78% in fiscal 2013 to 74% at Dec. 31, 2014.  The
decrease reflects increased attrition which offset move-ins.
However, both ALU and SNF occupancy rates are strong with ALU
occupancy equal to 97% at Dec. 31, 2014 and SNF occupancy
increasing from 67% in fiscal 2013 to 87%.  The improved SNF
occupancy reflects increased marketing efforts at local hospitals.

LIGHT LIQUIDITY

Unrestricted cash and investments increased 19.6% since Dec. 31,
2013 to $5.5 million at Dec. 31, 2014.  Despite the improvement,
liquidity metrics remain light but are consistent with the 'BB'
category with 135 days cash on hand, 39.6% cash-to-debt and 4.0x
cushion ratio.  Capital spending is not expected to negatively
impact liquidity or require additional debt in the near- to
mid-term.  However, management has engaged a consultant to assess
the community's capital needs and to help develop a new master
facility plan.  Fitch will assess the updated capital plan as more
details become available.

DISCLOSURE

FVC covenants to provide annual disclosure within 150 days of the
end of each fiscal year and quarterly disclosure within 50 days of
the end of each quarter.  Disclosure is provided through the
Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board's EMMA system.

HORIZON LINES: Further Amends Credit Agreement with Wells Fargo
---------------------------------------------------------------
Horizon Lines, Inc., as parent, and Horizon Lines, LLC, as
borrower, entered into a third amendment to the credit agreement
with Wells Fargo Capital Finance, LLC, as administrative agent for
the lenders, and as lender, to amend certain provisions of that
certain Credit Agreement dated as of Oct. 5, 2011.

The amendment reduced the maximum size of the facility from $100
million to $80 million.  Horizon Lines' accounts receivable
balances have decreased due to the closing of its Puerto Rico
operations.  The decrease has resulted in a reduction in the
maximum forecasted borrowing base below $80 million.  The reduction
in the facility size is expected to reduce Horizon Lines' fees on
unused ABL Facility commitments by approximately $0.1 million per
year.  In addition to this fee reduction, the Amendment relaxes the
condition that triggers testing the minimum fixed charge coverage
ratio from a minimum excess availability of $12.5 million to $10
million and the condition that triggers weekly borrowing base
reporting from $14 million to $12 million.  The Amendment also
reduces the letter of credit sub-limit from $30 million to $20
million.


                        About Horizon Lines

Horizon Lines, Inc., is a domestic ocean shipping company and the
only ocean cargo carrier serving all three noncontiguous domestic
markets of Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico from the continental
United States.  The company owns a fleet of 13 fully Jones Act
qualified vessels and operates five port terminals in Alaska,
Hawaii and Puerto Rico.  A trusted partner for many of the
nation's leading retailers, manufacturers and U.S. government
agencies, Horizon Lines provides reliable transportation services
that leverage its unique combination of ocean transportation and
inland distribution capabilities to deliver goods that are vital
to the prosperity of the markets it serves.  The company is based
in Charlotte, NC, and its stock trades on the over-the-counter
market under the symbol HRZL.

Horizon Lines reported a net loss of $94.6 million for the year
ended Dec. 21, 2014, compared to a net loss of $31.9 million for
the year ended Dec. 22, 2013.

As of Dec. 21, 2014, Horizon Lines had $580 million in total
assets, $725 million in total liabilities, and a $145 million in
total stockholders' deficiency.

                           *     *     *

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

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


HUBBARD RADIO: S&P Affirms 'B+' CCR; Outlook Stable
---------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it affirmed its 'B+'
corporate credit rating on St. Paul, Minn.-based Hubbard Radio
LLC.

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

"The recovery rating revision reflects a lower amount of senior
secured debt under our simulated default scenario, and the improved
position of senior secured creditors," said Standard & Poor's
credit analyst Heidi Zhang.

The stable outlook on Hubbard reflects S&P's expectation that the
company will maintain "adequate" liquidity and leverage of less
than 5x over the next two to three years, with debt repayment
offsetting longer-term secular trends in radio.

S&P could lower the rating if it concludes that leverage will
increase above 5x or covenant headroom will shrink to less than
15%.  This would likely entail a low-single-digit percentage
revenue decline resulting from persistent weakness in the company's
most important markets, combined with margin compression of about
200 basis points (bps).

An upgrade would entail meaningful diversification that would
result in increased scale and less reliance on the Chicago and
Washington, D.C. stations and markets, financed without increasing
leverage.  Upgrade potential would also be linked to the radio
industry's stabilization and return to a modest pace of growth, and
Hubbard directing the majority of DCF to debt repayment, with a
commitment to maintaining lower leverage over the long term.


HUGHES SATELLITE: S&P Raises CCR to 'BB-' on Better Performance
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Rating Services said it raised its corporate
credit rating on Englewood, Colo.-based Hughes Satellite Systems
Corp. to 'BB-' from 'B+'.  The outlook is stable.

At the same time, S&P raised its issue-level rating on the
company's senior secured notes to 'BB+' from 'B+' and revised the
recovery rating on this debt to '1' from '3'.  The '1' recovery
rating indicates S&P's expectation of very high (90%-100%) recovery
in the event of payment default.  Additionally, S&P raised its
issue-level rating on the company's senior unsecured notes to 'B+'
from 'B-' and revised its recovery rating on this debt to '5' from
'6'.  The '5' recovery rating indicates S&P's expectation of modest
(10%-30%; higher half of the range) recovery for lenders in the
event of default.

"The ratings upgrade reflects the company's improved operating
performance and credit measures in 2014," said Standard & Poor's
credit analyst Michael Altberg.

The stable outlook reflects S&P's expectation for mid- to
high-single-digit revenue growth over the next few years, driven by
the company's satellite-broadband segment.  However, S&P do not
expect the company to materially improve its credit metrics in the
near term due to its elevated level of capital spending.

S&P could lower the rating if HSS's satellite broadband business
materially weakens over the next year, including heightened churn
and a reduction in gross customer additions, which could cause the
company's operating performance and profitability to deteriorate.
More specifically, S&P could lower the rating if it believes that
leverage will rise at HSS to the mid-4x area or higher on a
sustained basis as a result of such deterioration, which would
concurrently negatively affect our view of the group credit
profile.

While unlikely over the next 12 months, S&P could raise the rating
if the launch of Jupiter-2 in 2016 enables the company to
materially increase gross subscribers and improve churn levels,
leading to leverage below 2x on a sustained basis.  Any upgrade
scenario would also incorporate S&P's expectation for relatively
steady performance at EchoStar Corp. and S&P's improved view of the
group credit profile.

INEEDMD HOLDINGS: Reports $40.3-Mil. Net Loss in 2014
-----------------------------------------------------
iNeedMD Holdings, Inc., reported a net loss of $40.3 million on
$910 of revenues for the year ended Dec. 31, 2014, compared with a
net loss of $66.3 million on $7,540 of revenue in the same period
last year.

RRBB Accountants and Advisors expressed substantial doubt about the
Company's ability to continue as a going concern citing that the
Company the Company had a net loss and net cash used in operations
of $40.3 million and $4.57 million, respectively and has an
accumulated deficit totaling $115 million and does not generate any
significant revenue.

The Company's balance sheet at Dec. 31, 2014, showed $2.67 million
in total assets, $2.32 million in total liabilities, and
stockholders' equity of $348,000.

A copy of the Form 10-K filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange
Commission is available at:

                        http://is.gd/mIY3VQ

New York City-based iNeedMD Holdings, Inc., formerly Clutterbug
Move Management, Inc., provides personalized moving assistance and
organization support services to the elderly who are seeking a
transition to a new location.  As a senior citizen move manager,
the Company's sole officer and director services a move for the
elderly including, but not limited to, space and timetable
planning, downsizing belongings, sorting possessions, organizing
sales and donations, overseeing the transition of items to storage,
packing and unpacking, setting up its client's new residence and
arranging and planning with third party movers and storage
facilities to assist its clients.


IRON MOUNTAIN: S&P Affirms 'B+' CCR & Revises Outlook to Positive
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it affirmed the 'B+'
corporate credit rating on Boston-based Iron Mountain Inc. and
revised the outlook on the company to positive from stable.

"The positive rating outlook reflects our view that the acquisition
of Recall could improve the scale and geographic diversification of
the company," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Jawad Hussain.


The positive rating outlook on Iron Mountain reflects S&P's view
that the acquisition of Recall could lead to an improvement in
S&P's assessment of the company's business risk profile due to the
increased size, scale, and geographic diversification of the
combined company as well as the potential for the acquisition to
reduce leverage to the low-5x area.

S&P could raise the rating if the combined company's increased
scale and geographic diversification lead to increased operating
efficiency as a result of significant synergies and increased
exposure to faster growing international markets.  S&P also expects
the acquisition to result in leverage decreasing to the low-5x area
due to the large equity component that is financing the
transaction.

S&P could revise the outlook to stable if the merger does not occur
due to regulatory concerns or if the company is forced to make
large divestitures reducing the potential synergy benefits and
increased international exposure.  S&P could also revise the
outlook to stable if the cash component financing the transaction
increases significantly keeping pro forma leverage in the mid-5x
area.

KARMALOOP INC: U.S. Trustee Objects to Burns & Levinson Employment
------------------------------------------------------------------
Jim Christie, writing for Reuters, reported that Andrew Vara,
Acting U.S. Trustee for Region 3, is seeking to disqualify the law
firm hired to represent online apparel boutique Karmaloop Inc.
citing investments two partners had in the company and an
associate's marriage to a top company officer.

According to the report, the U.S. Trustee filed an objection asking
U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Mary Walsh in Delaware to deny Karmaloop's
application to retain Burns & Levinson of Boston.

Peg Brickley, writing for Daily Bankruptcy Review, reported that
two partners at Burns & Levinson made secured loans to Karmaloop
and own chunks of stock or warrants that generally date back to the
period when there was on-again, off-again talk that the online
retailer would launch into the public stock market.

15-10635.  The cases are assigned to Judge Kevin J. Carey.

Sandridge & Rice, LLP as attorneys; CRS Capstone Partners LLC as
financial advisor and Capstone's Brian L. Davies, Jr., as
restructuring officer; and Omni Management Group, LLC as claims
and
noticing agent.

The U.S. Trustee for Region 3 appointed five creditors of
Karmaloop Inc. to serve on the official committee of unsecured
creditors.


KIOR INC: Mississippi's Bid for Standing to Sue Faces Objections
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Mississippi Development Authority's motion for standing anad
authority to prosecute derivative claims on behalf of KiOR, Inc.'s
estate is facing objections from the Debtor and the lenders that
are being targeted by MDA's suit.

On Jan. 13, 2015, the State of Mississippi filed a lawsuit in
Mississippi state court against certain of the Debtor's prepetition
lenders, along with officers and directors of the Debtor.  On Jan.
14, 2015, the MDA filed with the Bankruptcy Court its original
motion for authority to pursue claims, stating that the Debtor
failed to undertake any due diligence regarding the claims of the
prepetition secured lenders, namely the KFT Trust, Khosla Ventures
III LP, VNK Management LLC, 1538731 Alberta Ltd., 1538716 Alberta
Ltd., and KFT trustee Vinod Khosla.  In the amended motion and
revised proposed complaint (filed on March 23, 2015), MDA asserts
against the Alberta Lenders he same equitable subordination claims
they previously asserted only against the Khosla Entities.

                   MDA Motion Moot, Says Debtor

While the Debtor disagrees that the MDA could meet its burden under
applicable law to become the estate's representative for pursuing
alleged causes of action, that issue does not require Court
determination because it is moot.  According to the Debtor, the
sole alleged basis for the Motion -- that valuable causes of action
are being released or waived pursuant to the Final DIP Order -- is
incorrect. While, as is typical in any section 364
debtor-in-possession financing, the Debtor stipulated to the
validity and priority of certain prepetition liens and secured
claims, those stipulations are not binding on the Debtor's
bankruptcy estate.  Instead, as set forth in the Final DIP Order as
approved by the Court, all such prepetition secured claims are
subject to a challenge period.  As was evident during discovery and
the Court's two-day evidentiary hearing on the Debtor's motion for
post-petition financing back on Jan. 15 and 16, 2015, the MDA's
interpretation of the scope of the Debtor's stipulations was simply
incorrect.  However, the Debtor's prepetition secured lenders
stipulated that the MDA's Motion constituted a timely challenge if
the MDA obtained the requisite standing.  Further, the Court signed
the Final DIP Order using the form and language requested by the
MDA which, among other things, grants a fresh challenge period to
the Liquidating Trustee, thereby further mooting any potential
basis for the Motion.

The Debtor points out that the Second Amended Plan (like the First
Amended Plan filed on Jan. 14, 2015) makes clear that any and all
Estate Causes of Action are preserved, and not waived or released,
and will be transferred into a Liquidating Trust upon the effective
date of the plan for the benefit of unsecured creditors. Thus, even
ignoring the MDA's misinterpretation of the as-then proposed Final
DIP Order, the entire predicate for the Motion does not exist.
There is no legal or practical justification to appoint a third
party to be the estate's representative to evaluate and pursue
alleged estate causes of action and then have those same claims and
causes of action transferred into the Liquidating Trust.

The Debtor's Second Amended Plan has identified Mr. Kurt Gywnne as
the proposed Liquidating Trustee, subject to Court approval as part
of the confirmation process.  The Debtor avers that the Liquidating
Trustee, not the MDA, should have the ability and authority to
determine how best to proceed with respect to any estate claims and
causes of action including any alleged "recharacterization" and
equitable subordination claims against the prepetition lenders.
The Liquidating Trustee, exercising his (or her) best independent
judgment, should decide what claims and causes of action should be
pursued, how to do so, and what counsel is best suited.  According
to the Debtor, the MDA has certain conflicts that make it
ineligible to be appointed as an estate representative with the
attendant fiduciary duties that necessarily accompany an
estate-representative role.  The independent Liquidating Trustee
will not have any such conflicts.

                Alberta Says It Should Be Excluded

1538731 Alberta Ltd., an investment fund managed by Alberta
Investment Management Corp (AIMCo), and referred to in documents as
the Prepetition Third Lien Agent, asks the Court to deny the MDA
Motion to the extent it seeks derivative standing to pursue
recharacterization, equitable subordination and other unspecified
claims against 1538731 Alberta Ltd. and 1538716 Alberta Ltd.

Prepetition, Alberta purchased $30 million of Series B preferred
stock of the Debtor in 2010, purchased $20 million of Series C
preferred stock in 2011, and in June 2011 converted all of the
preferred stock to a 7% equity interest in the Debtor.  In January
2012, pursuant to the Loan Agreement, the Alberta Lenders loaned
the Debtor $50 million, and the KFT Trust loaned the Debtor $25
million, in both cases secured by substantially all of the Debtor's
assets and certain personal property and fixtures owned by the
Debtor's subsidiary KiOR Columbus LLC.

According to Alberta, at the time the loans were made, the Debtor
had no other material secured debt and, the Debtor separately held
more than $130 million in cash – the loans were oversecured, and
the Debtor was not undercapitalized.  The loans under the Loan
Agreement remained first priority secured loans for 20 months,
until the Khosla affiliates began making the loans that are
described in the DIP Financing Order as the Prepetition First and
Second Lien Debt.

The Alberta Lenders say they did not make a loan to the Debtor with
the intent that the loan would be a disguised equity contribution,
and the MDA has not and cannot plead any fact, express or implied,
to support an attack by the estate on the validity of the Alberta
Lenders' debt.  MDA does not allege that the $50 million loaned by
the Alberta Lenders to the Debtor, at approximately the same time
as the $75 million loan made by MDA to the Debtor's subsidiary,
KiOR Columbus, LLC, conferred an unfair advantage on the Alberta
Lenders.  Thus, the Alberta Lenders believe that the claim for
equitable subordination is not plausible.

              Khosla Parties Say MDA Motion Flawed

The KFT Trust, Vinod Khosla, Trustee, VNK Management, LLC, and
Khosla Ventures III, LP (the "Khosla Secured Parties") say the MDA
Standing Motion and the proposed form of complaint paint with a
wide brush, seeking permission to pursue recharacterization,
equitable subordination, and lien avoidance claims in respect of
four materially different sets of so-called "Capital Infusions"
that occurred over more than 2-1/2 years, along with a generalized
request to pursue unspecified "other" claims.

The Khosla Secured Parties believe the MDA's proposed claims are
all flawed, but nevertheless wish to narrow and focus the issues
that must be decided by the Court at this juncture:

    * The Khosla Secured Parties do not ask the Court now to decide
whether colorable claims exist for the recharacterization or
subordination of certain second-lien debt (referred to in the
Proposed Complaint as the "October 2013 Capital Infusion" and the
"March 2014 Capital Infusion").  Rather, the Khosla Secured Parties
are willing to stipulate that such claims have been timely raised
and will not be released under any DIP financing order.  The Khosla
Secured Parties submit that a post-confirmation plan trustee or
similar fiduciary is the appropriate party to pursue these claims
if such fiduciary deems appropriate.  The Khosla Secured Parties
believe the Debtor's proposed plan makes clear that such claims
will be preserved for its liquidating trustee to evaluate.
Furthermore, the Khosla Secured Parties believe that it would be
inefficient to litigate the MDA's claims regarding the second lien
debt at this juncture given that it is not clear what, if any,
recovery unsecured creditors will receive under the Debtor's plan;
if it turns out that there will be no material recovery, then it
would be a costly waste of time and resources to litigate about the
validity, nature, or priority of the second lien debt.

   * The Khosla Secured Parties do not here address the Proposed
Complaint's allegations regarding certain third-lien debt (referred
to in the Proposed Complaint as the "January 2012 Capital
Infusion"), but instead defer to the separate objection to the MDA
Standing Motion filed by 1538731 Alberta Ltd. as agent for the
lenders under that credit facility.

   * The Khosla Secured Parties do request that the Court find that
the MDA has failed to allege any colorable claims with respect to
certain first-lien secured credit extended in July 2014 pursuant to
that certain Protective Advance Loan and Security Agreement (the
"PALSA Debt") and deny the MDA Standing Motion as it relates to the
PALSA Debt.

    * The Khosla Secured Parties also do request that the Court
deny the MDA Standing Motion with respect to any generalized "other
potentially viable" claims that are not specifically described in
the MDA Standing Motion and not pled adequately (or at all) in the
Proposed Complaint.  Since both the final DIP order and the
Debtor's proposed plan preserve all such claims for either a
chapter 7 trustee or plan trustee, there is no need to accord the
MDA an unspecified commission to pursue any claims that it believes
it discovers at a later date.

LANCELOT INVESTMENT: Katten's Bad Advice Led to Ponzi Losses
------------------------------------------------------------
Law360 reported that the bankruptcy trustee for Lancelot Investors
Fund Ltd., a hedge fund that pumped billions into Tom Petters'
mammoth Ponzi scheme, urged the Seventh Circuit to revive his
malpractice suit claiming the fund's former attorneys at Katten
Muchin & Rosenman LLP ignored red flags that should have tipped
them off to the fraud.

According to the report, Lancelot's Chapter 7 trustee, Ronald
Peterson of Jenner & Block LLP, contended Katten was negligent in
failing to advise hedge fund manager Gregory Bell.

The case is Ronald Peterson v. Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP, Case No.
14-3632 (7th Circ.).


LIGHTSQUARED INC: Judge Dismisses Falcone's Suit vs. Ergen, Dish
----------------------------------------------------------------
Joseph Checkler, writing for The Wall Street Journal, reported that
U.S. District Judge William J. Martinez in Colorado dismissed
Philip Falcone's racketeering lawsuit against Dish Network Corp.
and Chairman Charlie Ergen over Mr. Ergen's investment in
LightSquared, calling Mr. Falcone's argument "frivolous."

According to the report, Judge Martinez also said the claims by Mr.
Falcone and his Harbinger Capital Partners hedge fund firm are too
similar to ones it made in a lawsuit filed as part of
LightSquared's bankruptcy case, an argument Dish and Mr. Ergen made
in their bid to dismiss the suit.

The judge took particular aim at Harbinger's contention that Mr.
Ergen bought up LightSquared's debt as part of a plan to make a
lowball bid for LightSquared through an investment vehicle he
controlled, the Journal related.

                      About LightSquared Inc.

LightSquared Inc. and 19 of its affiliates filed Chapter 11
bankruptcy petitions (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Lead Case No. 12-12080) on
May 14, 2012, to resolve regulatory issues that have prevented it
from building its coast-to-coast integrated satellite 4G wireless
network.

LightSquared had invested more than $4 billion to deploy an
integrated satellite-terrestrial network.  In February 2012,
however, the U.S. Federal Communications Commission told
LightSquared the agency would revoke a license to build out the
network as it would interfere with global positioning systems used
by the military and various industries.  In March 2012, the
Company's partner, Sprint, canceled a master services agreement.
LightSquared's lenders deemed the termination of the Sprint
agreement would trigger cross-defaults under LightSquared's
prepetition credit agreements.

LightSquared and its prepetition lenders attempted to negotiate a
global restructuring that would provide LightSquared with
liquidity and runway necessary to resolve its issues with the FCC.

Despite working diligently and in good faith, however,
LightSquared and the lenders were not able to consummate a global
restructuring on terms acceptable to all interested parties.

Lawyers at Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy LLP serve as counsel to
the Debtors.  Alvarez & Marsal North America, LLC, is the
Financial advisor.  Kurtzman Carson Consultants LLC serves as

Plan, (D) the payment in full, in cash, of LightSquared's general
unsecured claims, (E) the provision of $1.25 billion in new money

confirmation of the amended joint plan filed by Lightsquared Inc.
and its debtor-affiliates together with Fortress Credit
Opportunities Advisor LLC, Harbinger Capital Partners LLC, and

LightSquared Inc.'s Chapter 11 reorganization plan, capping a
bankruptcy odyssey for Philip Falcone's ambitious wireless venture
that filed for bankruptcy nearly three years ago.

without interest, in equal monthly installments, over a period of
36 months.  The class is impaired.

   -- Allowed employee indemnification claims [Class 7], if any,
will be paid in full in cash when matured.  The class is impaired.

   -- Holders of equity interests [Class 8] will retain the equity
interests held on the date of the filing of the bankruptcy case.

Only the impaired classes -- Classes 3, 5, 6, 7 and 8 -- were

NII HOLDINGS: Completes Sale of Mexican Operations to AT&T
----------------------------------------------------------
NII Holdings, Inc. on April 30 disclosed that it has completed the
previously announced sale of its Mexican operations to AT&T for an
aggregate purchase price of $1.875 billion, subject to customary
post-closing adjustments.  After deducting Nextel Mexico's
outstanding indebtedness net of its cash balance and applying
estimates of other specified purchase price adjustments at closing,
NII received $1.448 billion of net proceeds, including $187.5
million of cash placed in escrow to secure specified indemnity
obligations.  The Company used $350.5 million of the net proceeds
from the sale to repay in full the outstanding principal and
accrued interest due under its debtor-in-possession loan that it
borrowed in March 2015.

The transaction, which was structured as a sale of the parent
company of Nextel Mexico, was completed as part of NII's broader
debt restructuring efforts.  A portion of the net proceeds from the
transaction will be used to support NII's operations in Brazil and
the remainder will be used to fund distributions to specified
creditors, pursuant to the proposed plan of reorganization in the
Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings of NII and certain of its
subsidiaries, that is pending before the United States Bankruptcy
Court for the Southern District of New York.  The plan of
reorganization remains subject to the approval of the creditors in
the bankruptcy proceedings and the approval of the Bankruptcy
Court.  

"This sale represents an important step forward as we look to
emerge from Chapter 11 reorganization as a stronger, healthier
company that is positioned to compete in Brazil's wireless
marketplace," said Steve Shindler, NII's chief executive officer.
"This deal strengthens our liquidity position as we pursue growth
opportunities in Brazil and build value in our business over the
long-term."

"We are proud of the success that our team in Mexico has achieved
as a part of our company for 18 years, and we are grateful to all
of our employees there for their dedication and service," added
Mr. Shindler.

NII HOLDINGS: Court Extends Plan Filing Deadline to July 13
-----------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Shelley C. Chapman of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Southern District of New York further extended the exclusive
periods of NII Holdings Inc. and its debtor-affiliates to:

  a) file a Chapter 11 plan until July 13, 2015; and

  b) solicit acceptances of that plan through and including Sept.
10, 2015.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Jan. 12, 2015, on
Nov. 24, 2014, the Debtors provided notice to parties-in-interest
of a major milestone in their Chapter 11 cases -- their entry into
a Plan Support Agreement (the "PSA").

On Dec. 22, 2014, the Debtors filed their Chapter 11 plan of
reorganization and disclosure statement.  The Plan will:

   (a) convert all of the outstanding senior unsecured notes  
       issued by CapCo and LuxCo -- totaling $4.35 billion -- into
       equity interests in the reorganized Debtors;

   (b) implement a proposed settlement of certain disputed inter-
       estate and inter-debtor claims and disputed third party
       creditor claims; and

   (c) provide the reorganized Debtors with $500 million in new
       capital to support the continued turnaround of the Debtors'
       business.

Party to the PSA are four of the Debtors' major creditor
constituencies: (a) a group of entities managed by Aurelius Capital
Management, LP; (b) a group of entities managed by Capital Research
and Management Company; (c) American Tower Corporation, American
Tower do Brasil - Cessao de Infraestruturas Ltda. and MATC Digital
S. de R.L. de C.V.; and (d) the Official Committee of Unsecured
Creditors, which is also a co-proponent with the Debtors of the
Plan.

The PSA and the Plan are the result of months of intense and
continuous negotiations between the Debtors and various
parties-in-interest that began prior to the Petition Date in March
2014.   Those negotiations involved an active, frequent and
cooperative dialogue with various holders of Notes and their
respective professionals over the key components of the Debtors'
restructuring and the holders' respective due diligence efforts.

The Debtors add that as the Court is aware, they have resolved
issues surrounding the appointment of the Independent Manager to
review the reasonableness of the Proposed Settlement, and on
December 11, 2014, the Court ruled on the Stipulation Regarding the
Appointment and Scope of an Independent Manager for NII
International Telecom S.C.A.  In accordance with the terms of the
Stipulation, on Dec. 12, 2014, Scott W. Winn (the "Independent
Manager") was appointed as a Class C Manager to the board of
managers of NII International Holdings S.a r.l. to review the
Proposed Settlement and, within 45 days of appointment (unless such
initial time period is extended by the Court for good cause shown
upon application of the Independent Manager), on behalf of LuxCo,
either (a) confirm the reasonableness of, and recommend to the
Board of Managers that it cause LuxCo to join in, the Proposed
Settlement pursuant to Bankruptcy Code section 1123(b)(3) and
Federal Rule of Bankruptcy Procedure 9019 or (b) state his
recommendation to the Board of Managers that LuxCo not join in the

                       Proposed Settlement

Under the terms of the PSA, if the Independent Manager recommends
to the Board of Managers that LuxCo not join in the Proposed
Settlement, the Debtors, the Creditors' Committee and each of the
Requisite Consenting Noteholders have the option to terminate the
PSA.

The Debtors also relate that they have achieved a number of other
important tasks to date in these bankruptcy cases, including: (a)
obtaining interim and final relief from the Court with respect to
the relief requested in various first-day and second-day motions to
allow them continued and seamless operation during these Chapter 11
cases; (b) filing their schedules of assets and liabilities and
statements of financial affairs; (c) establishing a claims bar
date; (d) retaining numerous professionals to assist them; (e)
rejecting the lease for an unused property and amending the lease
for their headquarters; and (f) establishing procedures to sell or
abandon assets of de minimis value.

Nortel Networks Corporation, NNI's direct corporate parent Nortel
Networks Limited and certain of their Canadian affiliates
commenced a proceeding with the Ontario Superior Court of Justice
under the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act (Canada) seeking
relief from their creditors.  Ernst & Young was appointed to serve

Group.  That same day, the Monitor sought recognition of the CCAA
Proceedings in U.S. Bankruptcy Court (Bankr. D. Del. Case No.
09-10164) under Chapter 15 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.

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

NNI's European affiliates into administration under the control of
individuals from Ernst & Young LLP.  Other Nortel affiliates have
commenced and in the future may commence additional creditor

the sale of Nortel's patent portfolio to Rockstar Bidco, a
consortium consisting of Apple Inc., EMC Corporation,
Telefonaktiebolaget LM Ericsson, Microsoft Corp., Research In
Motion Limited, and Sony Corporation.  The consortium defeated a
$900 million stalking horse bid by Google Inc. at an auction.  The
deal closed in July 2011.

Nortel has filed a proposed plan of liquidation in the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court.  The Plan generally provides for full payment on

PATRIOT COAL: Said to Explore Sale Options in 2nd Restructuring
---------------------------------------------------------------
Laura Keller and Tim Loh, writing for Bloomberg News, reported that
Patriot Coal Corp., the miner that emerged from bankruptcy two
years ago, is exploring options to sell itself as prices for its
commodity stagnate in the worst downturn in decades.

Bloomberg related that the coal miner sold some assets in western
Kentucky to Alliance Resource Partners LP in December as part of
its "review of strategic options," and closed its Highland Mine and
Dodge Hill Mining Complex.

As previously reported by The Troubled Company Reporter, people
familiar with the matter said Patriot Coal is working with
restructuring advisers to address its capital structure amid
continued decline in the coal industry.  Sources told The Wall
Street Journal that the miner is working with lawyers at Kirkland &
Ellis and financial advisers at Alvarez & Marsal and Centerview
Partners.

                        About Patriot Coal

Patriot Coal Corporation is a producer and marketer of coal in
the eastern United States, with 8 active mining complexes in
Northern and Central Appalachia. Patriot ships to domestic and
international electricity generators, industrial users and
metallurgical coal customers, and controls approximately 1.4
billion tons of proven and probable coal reserves.

Patriot Coal and nearly 100 affiliates filed voluntary Chapter 11
petitions in U.S. bankruptcy court in Manhattan (Bankr. S.D.N.Y.
Lead Case No. 12-12900) on July 9, 2012, listing $3.57 billion of
assets and $3.07 billion of debts.  It arranged $802 million of
financing to continue operations during the reorganization.

Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP served as lead restructuring counsel in
the 2012 case.  Bryan Cave LLP served as local counsel to the
Debtors.  Blackstone Advisory Partners LP acted as financial
advisor, and AP Services, LLC provided interim management
services to Patriot in connection with the reorganization.  Ted
Stenger, a Managing Director at AlixPartners LLP, the parent
company of AP Services, served as Chief Restructuring Officer of
Patriot, reporting to the Chairman and CEO.  GCG, Inc. served as
claims and noticing agent.

The U.S. Trustee appointed a seven-member creditors committee.  
Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel LLP served as its counsel.  
Houlihan Lokey Capital, Inc., served as its financial advisor and
investment banker.  Epiq Bankruptcy Solutions, LLC, served as its
information agent.

On Nov. 27, 2012, the New York bankruptcy judge moved Patriot's
bankruptcy case to St. Louis.  The order formally sending the
reorganization to Missouri was signed Dec. 19, 2012, by the
bankruptcy judge.  The New York Judge in a Jan. 23, 2013 order
denied motions to transfer the venue to the U.S. Bankruptcy Court
for the Southern District of West Virginia.

Patriot Coal filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern
District of Missouri a First Amended Joint Chapter 11 Plan of
Reorganization and an explanatory disclosure statement on Oct. 9,
2013, and a Second Amended Joint Chapter 11 Plan of
Reorganization and an explanatory disclosure statement on Oct.
26, 2013.  The Bankruptcy Court approved the Plan on Dec. 17,
2013.  Patriot Coal emerged from bankruptcy, turning over most of
the ownership of the company to bondholders that include New York
hedge fund Knighthead Capital Management LLC.

The Troubled Company Reporter, on Jan. 16, 2015, reported that
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it lowered its corporate
credit rating on Scott Depot, W.Va.-based coal producer Patriot
Coal Corp. to 'B-' from 'B'.  The outlook is negative.  At the
same time, S&P lowered its issue-level rating on the company's
senior secured debt to 'B' from 'B+'.  The recovery rating
remains '2', indicating S&P's expectation of a substantial (70%-
90%) recovery in the event of a payment default.

"Patriot's recently announced asset and coal supply agreement
rights sales to Alliance Resource Partners, L.P. support S&P's
belief that Patriot is reasonably likely to meet its financial
commitments over the next year and underpins the 'B-' rating.  
However, as indicated by the negative outlook, the prospects for
a sustainable cost structure that supports positive free cash
flow generation remain unclear," S&P said.

The TCR, on Nov. 28, 2014, reported that Moody's downgraded the
ratings of Patriot Coal, including the corporate family rating
(CFR) to Caa1 from B3, probability of default rating (PDR) to
Caa1-PD from B3-PD, and the rating on the senior secured term
loan to Caa1 from B3. Moody's also lowered the speculative grade
liquidity (SGL) rating to SGL-4 from SGL-3. The outlook is
negative.


PENN NATIONAL: S&P Cuts CCR to 'B+' on Tropicana Acquisition
------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it lowered its corporate
credit rating on Wyomissing, Pa.-based gaming operator Penn
National Gaming Inc. to 'B+' from 'BB-'.  The rating outlook is
negative.

At the same time, S&P lowered its issue-level rating on Penn
National's senior secured credit facility, consisting of a $633
million revolver (including the $133 million in incremental
commitments provided for under the amendment to the credit
agreement), $612 million term loan A (including the incremental
$136 million in borrowing provided for under the amendment), and
$247 million term loan B, to 'BB' from 'BB+'.  The recovery rating
on the credit facility remains '1' indicating S&P's expectation for
very high (90% to 100%) recovery for lenders in the event of a
payment default.

Penn National plans to use the incremental term loan A funds, along
with revolver borrowings, to help fund the acquisition of the
Tropicana Las Vegas.

S&P also lowered its issue-level rating on Penn National's senior
unsecured notes to 'B' from 'B+'.  The recovery rating remains '5',
indicating S&P's expectation for modest recovery (10% to 30%; lower
half of the range) for lenders in the event of a payment default.

"The downgrade reflects our expectation that the incremental debt
Penn National will incur to fund the recently announced acquisition
of the Tropicana Las Vegas for around $360 million, in conjunction
with planned development spending for various projects through
2016, will result in minimal to negative free cash flow generation
through 2016 and adjusted debt to EBITDA remaining in the mid-6x
area, on average, through 2017," said Standard & Poor's credit
analyst Ariel Silverberg.

This level of debt leverage is weak even at the lower 'B+' rating
given S&P's assessment of Penn National's business risk profile as
"fair," and is driving its negative rating outlook.  S&P would
consider lowering the ratings further if it come to believe that
Penn will not be able to improve leverage to around 6x by the end
of 2017.

The negative outlook reflects S&P's forecast for adjusted debt to
EBITDA to remain above 6x through 2016, a level that is weak at the
'B+' rating on Penn National given our "fair" business risk
assessment.  S&P believes incremental debt expected to be incurred
to fund the acquisition, combined with high levels of development
capital spending in the next two years, will largely offset S&P's
expectation for modest EBITDA growth.

S&P could lower the rating if it expects adjusted debt to EBITDA
will be maintained above 6x over the long run, or if the company's
liquidity position deteriorates.  This would likely occur in a
scenario where greater than expected competitive pressures drive
EBITDA declines, development capital spending is greater than S&P
is currently forecasting, or if the company pursues another
leveraging transaction.

S&P could revise the outlook to stable once it is confident that
Penn National will be able to improve and sustain adjusted debt to
EBITDA below 6x.  Although S&P is not forecasting this to occur
before the end of 2016, leverage below 6x would likely result from
greater than expected EBITDA growth which contributes to faster
debt repayment.

a going concern, the audit reports of Johnson on the Company's
financial statements for the last fiscal year ended June 30, 2014,
and 2013 through April 22, 2015, did not contain an adverse opinion
or a disclaimer of opinion, nor was it qualified or modified as to
uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principles.

The Company said the resignation is not a result of any
disagreement.

On April 22, 2015, the Company's Board of Directors approved the
engagement of Danielle M. Adams, CPA of Adams Advisory, LLC, as the
Company's independent accountant effective immediately to audit the
Company's financial statements and to perform reviews of interim

"The Company has incurred a deficit of approximately $26 million

operating activities in the two years ended June 30, 2014.  The
Company may not have adequate readily available resources to fund
operations through June 30, 2015.  This raises substantial doubt
about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern," the
auditors noted.


PRONERVE HOLDINGS: Judge Approves Sale to SpecialtyCare
-------------------------------------------------------
Tom Corrigan, writing for Daily Bankruptcy Review, reported that
surgery-monitoring company ProNerve LLC won a bankruptcy court's
permission to sell itself to SpecialtyCare IOM Services LLC in a
$35 million debt-for-equity swap after failing to attract any other
qualified offers.

According to the report, the approval takes ProNerve one step
closer to fulfilling a plan to liquidate its remaining assets, pay
creditors and ultimately exit Chapter 11 protection.

                      About ProNerve Holdings

Colorado.  ProNerve and certain affiliated practice entities
provide intraoperative neurophysiologic monitoring ("IOM")
services

ambulatory surgical centers, surgeons, and physician groups in
more
than 25 states.

ProNerve Holdings, LLC and its affiliates sought Chapter 11
protection (Bankr. D. Del. Case No. 15-10373) on Feb. 24, 2015,
with a deal to sell assets to SpecialtyCare IOM Services, LLC for
a
credit bid of $35 million.

The cases are assigned to Judge Kevin J. Carey.

The Debtor tapped Pepper Hamilton LLP as counsel, and The Garden
City Group, Inc., as claims and noticing agent.

PUTNAM ENERGY: Court Enters Interim Cash Collateral Order
---------------------------------------------------------
The Bankruptcy Court entered an interim order authorizing Putnam
Energy, L.L.C. use of cash collateral.  A hearing to consider the
Debtor's further access to cash collateral is slated for April 29,
2015, at 10:30 a.m.

Bridgeview Bank has a judgment against the Debtor in the sum of
$1,763,622 as of April 16, 2014, which accrues interest at the
statutory rate of 9% per annum plus attorneys' fees and costs.

As partial adequate protection for use of cash collateral,
Bridgeview Bank is granted replacement liens in all currently owed
or hereafter acquired property and assets of the Debtors, and a
superpriority administrative claim status.

Bridgeview Bank has objected to the Debtor's cash collateral motion
stating that the Debtor has not and cannot sustain its burden of
proving Bridgeview Bank is adequately protected.

                       About Putnam Energy

Putnam Energy, L.L.C., a company with power plant and pipeline
assets, sought Chapter 11 protection (Bankr. N.D. Ill. Case No.
15-08733) on March 11, 2015, in Chicago, Illinois, after it failed
to reach a forbearance agreement with its lender.

The Debtor disclosed $10,394,596 in assets and $2,283,218 in
liabilities as of the Chapter 11 filing.

The case is assigned to Judge Carol A. Doyle.  Terrence O'Malley,
manager and CEO, signed the petition.  The Debtor is represented
by Douglas S Draper, Esq., at Heller, Draper, Patrick, Horn &
Dabney, LLC, in New Orleans, as counsel.


The Bankruptcy Court continued until May 18, 2015, at 9:30 a.m.,
the hearing to consider Bridgeview Bank Group's amended motion for
appointment of a trustee, or in the alternative, an examiner.

In relation to the May 18 hearing, counsel for parties are ordered
to confer and fie with the Court by May 13, a joint document
captioned pretrial statement containing, among other things:

   1. a brief statement of the theory of each claim and each
defense;

   2. a statement of stipulated facts; and

   3. each party's list of witnesses with any objections noted,
stating grounds.

The Debtor, in its objection to the motion, stated that Bridgeview
Bank made numerous unsupported allegations regarding the Debtor's
alleged prepetition "dishonesty" or "gross negligence."  Despite
these serious allegations, Bridgeview Bank does not attach any
declarations, or evidence, that supported "dishonesty" or "gross
negligence."  Instead, Bridgeview Bank showed that the Debtor and
its counterparties did not properly document all of the
transactions that occurred between the parties dating back to
1967.

MLP Energy Advisors, LLC, and Sandra J. Zutowt, also in opposition
to the motion, asserted that the appointment of a trustee is not in
the best interest of the creditors of the Debtor.  Some of the
reasons appointment of a trustee is not in the best interest
are:

   a) the Debtor's operation of the oil and gas leases is both
efficient, safe and maximizes the benefit to the credits of the
Debtor; and

   b) the production system at the field was designed by the Debtor
and the Debtor is the best operator of the gas wells that are
subject to the leases.

Bridgeview Bank was granted leave to file and serve a written reply
to the response by May 6.

In its amended motion filed March 19, 2015, Bridgeview Bank stated
that the Debtor's dishonesty or gross mismanagement render it
impossible to determine whether it is complying with the terms or
its leases and assignments related to the Illini Field.  According
to Bridgeview Bank, the Debtor operates seven wells in Crawford
County, Illinois on several parcels of real estate collectively
known as the Illini Field." Putnam does not own the property where
the Illini Field is located.

RADIOSHACK CORP: Agrees to Customer Data Sale Mediation
-------------------------------------------------------
RadioShack Corp. has agreed to mediation with concerned state
attorneys general regarding sale of customer data, Randall Chase at
The Associated Press reports, citing Greg M. Gordon, Esq., at Jones
Day, the Company's bankruptcy counsel.  According to the report,
Mr. Gordon told the Hon. Brendan Shannon Bankruptcy Court that the
mediation, which will include a consumer privacy ombudsman, will
start on May 14, 2015.

The AP relates that an auction for the assets is set for May 11,
2015, while the hearing on the approval of the sale is scheduled
for May 20, 2015.

According to The AP, Judge Shannon said Tuesday that he's willing
to approve bid procedures for the sale of the Company's
intellectual property, but he warned there's no guarantee he will
approve the sale itself, as there are serious privacy issues that
may preclude court approval of the sale.

The AP adds that Judge Shannon rejected the Texas attorney
general's request to require separate bid allocations for the
customer data -- apart from the other intellectual property -- in
case the sale of the data is disallowed.

RADIOSHACK CORP: Privacy Concerns Raised Over Sale of Customer Data
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Katy Stech, writing for The Wall Street Journal, reported that
RadioShack Corp. is preparing to sell a trove of customer data at
auction in May as dozens of state attorneys general battled the
retailer in court for clarity on what information will sold.

According to the Journal, at a hearing in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in
Wilmington, Del., Judge Brendan Shannon set a May 6 deadline for
bidders who want to put in offers for a database that chronicles
what roughly 67 million RadioShack customers have bought in recent
years, along with their physical address.

Groups of creditors may continue their fight in front of a mediator
as Judge Shannon ordered RadioShack to release several more details
about what information will be sold, but it is unclear if that will
be enough to ease privacy concerns, the Journal related.

BankruptcyData reported that multiple parties -- including
Washington Prime Group, Colt Holdings, De Rito Pavilions 139,
Festival Pasadena Associates, HSG Pasadena, LM Pasadena and One
Mile West -- objected to the Debtors' proposed sale.  Washington
Prime Group, according to BData, said it does not object to the
Debtors' establishment of bidding procedures or the establishment
of procedures in connection with the potential assumption and
assignment of the Debtors' lease agreements but object to the
Assignment Procedures, the Bidding Procedures, and the Cure
Procedures currently suggested by the Debtors, as they are unduly
burdensome on the WP Glimcher Landlords, do not provide the WP
Glimcher Landlords with sufficient notice with respect to the sale
and potential assumption and assignment of the Leases, and limit
the ability of the WP Glimcher Landlords to fully assess any
proposed assignee of the Leases and to contest any proposed
assumption and assignment of the Leases in a prepared and informed
manner.

Law360, New York (April 23, 2015, 8:05 PM ET) -- The U.S.
Trustee’s office has raised objections to RadioShack Corp.’s
proposed plan to sell off customer data as part of its unwinding,
saying the bankrupt electronics retailer hasn’t made clear what
data or personally identifiable information it intends to sell.

Law360 reported that Andrew Vara, Acting U.S. Trustee for Regiong
3, echoed concerns raised by state attorneys general that
Radioshack has not provided sufficient details about the
information included in next month’s planned asset sale.  The
U.S. Trustee said that Radioshack's "lack of specificity and
clarity" over the sale -- including how many customers could be
affected -- hinders court-appointed privacy ombudsman Elise Frejka
from performing her duties and prevents the court from weighing
alternatives that would mitigate consumer privacy losses if the
sale goes through.

RADIOSHACK CORP: To Get $6.5-Mil. from Two Separate Asset Sales
---------------------------------------------------------------
U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Brendan Shannon has given RadioShack Corp.
the green light to sell some of its assets for a total of $6.5
million.

The assets will be sold in two separate transactions with Regal
Forest Holding Co. Ltd. and Delta RS for Trading.

Regal Forest offered $5 million for RadioShack's Latin American
assets, including trademarks and contracts.  Meanwhile, the second
transaction involves the sale of assets owned by the company in
Middle East, including its intellectual property, for $1.5 million.


The buyers will also assume certain liabilities of RadioShack,
according to court filings.

RadioShack selected both companies as the winning bidders following
an auction in March.

REICHHOLD HOLDINGS: Has Until June 29 to File Chapter 11 Plan
-------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Mary F. Walrath of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Delaware extended the exclusive periods of Reichhold
Holdings US Inc. and its debtor-affiliates to:

  a) file a Chapter 11 plan until June 29, 2015; and

  b) solicit acceptances of that plan until Aug. 28, 2015.

                         About Reichhold

supplier of coating resins for the industrial, transportation,
building and construction, marine, consumer and graphic arts
markets.  Reichhold -- http://www.Reichhold.com/--  has

the companies generated $1.08 billion in net revenue, and as of the
year-to-date August 2014, $750 million in net revenues.

Reichhold Holdings US, Inc., Reichhold, Inc., and two U.S.
affiliates sought Chapter 11 protection (Bankr. D. Del. Lead Case
No. 14-12237) on Sept. 30, 2014.

The Reichhold Companies filed for bankruptcy to pursue a sale
transaction that has two elements: (i) a consensual foreclosure by
the holders of senior secured notes on their security interests in
the common and preferred stock in Reichhold Holdings Luxembourg,
S.a.r.l. ("RHL"), the ultimate holding company of all of the
non-debtor affiliates that operate outside the U.S., and (ii) a
purchase of certain assets of the Debtors by Reichhold Holdings

reconciliation of claims and prosecution of claims or estates'
causes of actions.  

The hearing to consider approval of the proposed Disclosure
Statement is scheduled to commence at 11:00 a.m. (Prevailing
Eastern Time) on May 4, 2015.

protection (Bankr. D.N.J. Lead Case No. 14-22654) on June 19, 2014,
to pursue a quick sale of the assets.

The Chapter 11 cases are assigned to Judge Gloria M. Burns.  The
Debtors' Chapter 11 cases are jointly consolidated for procedural
purposes.

Revel AC estimated assets ranging from $500 million to $1 billion,
and the same amount of liabilities.

represented by Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP.  The
DIP agent is represented by Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy LLP.

This is Revel AC's second trip to bankruptcy.  The company first
sought bankruptcy protection (Bankr. D.N.J. Lead Case No. 13-16253)
on March 25, 2013, with a prepackaged plan that reduced debt by
$1.25 billion.  Less than two months later on May 15, 2013, the
2013 Plan was confirmed and became effective on May 21, 2013.


REVEL AC: Judge OKs Settlement on Sale Proceeds
-----------------------------------------------
Tom Corrigan, writing for Daily Bankruptcy Review, reported that
Revel AC Inc., the former owner of the Revel Casino Hotel in
Atlantic City, N.J., took a decisive step toward winding down its
Chapter 11 case, after a judge approved a settlement that divvies
up the proceeds from the recent sale of the resort to a Florida
developer.

According to the DBR report, following a hearing in Camden, N.J.,
Judge Gloria Burns said she would sign an order than sets aside
about $32 million of the $82 million in sale proceeds for
creditors, lawyers and other administrative expenses.

Chief District Judge Jerome Simandle previously issued a bench
ruling barring Glenn Straub, the new owner of the shuttered Revel
Casino Hotel, from using equipment claimed by the resort's former
energy supplier, ACR Energy Partners LLC, to restore power to the
building following a weeklong blackout, Law360 reported.  A
temporary restraining order granted by Judge Simandle during a
hearing in Camden forbids Mr. Straub, whose Polo North Country Club
Inc. acquired Revel for $82 million, from making good on plans to
revive the casino, Law360 said.

ACR released a statement saying Mr. Straub's plans to restore power
to his newly acquired casino through either mobile generators or a
connection with the neighboring Showboat casino, which is owned by
Stockton University, were unlikely to succeed, Law360 added.

Judge Burns cleared the way for lawyers to offer a liquidation
plan, granting requests to terminate leases of former business
partners and weakening the Revel power supplier's claim for
priority repayment rights, Law360 further reported.  Judge Burns's
decision, according to Law360, means business tenants including
power plant operator ACR Energy can renegotiate contracts with Mr.
Straub.

REVEL AC: Plan Filing Date Extended to June 30
----------------------------------------------
BankruptcyData reported that the U.S. Bankruptcy Court approved
Revel AC's motion to extend the exclusive period during which the
Company can file a Chapter 11 plan and solicit acceptances thereof
through and including June 30, 2015.

According to BData, the Debtors said they are now working towards
obtaining the Court's approval of the sale of substantially all of
the Debtors' assets to Polo North pursuant to the Amended Polo
North APA and the extension of the Exclusive Solicitation Period
will afford the Debtors an opportunity to modify and solicit
acceptances of the Plan.  

The expiration of the Exclusive Solicitation Period and the threat
of multiple plans filed by other parties will likely lead to
further contentious litigation in these Chapter 11 Cases and
increase the difficulty of confirming a plan, BData cited the
Debtors as saying.

SAMUEL WYLY: Tells SEC Not to Worry About Luxury Ranch Sale
-----------------------------------------------------------
Erik Larson, writing for Bloomberg News, reported that bankrupt
ex-billionaire Samuel Wyly told a judge it's too soon for
regulators to fret over what he'll do with as much as $50 million
from the planned sale of his family's Colorado ranch, the site of
six custom-built mansions.

According to the report, the U.S. Securities and Exchange
Commission and the Internal Revenue Service have objected to his
proposal, arguing he hasn't guaranteed the proceeds won't disappear
offshore.  Mr. Wyly has said he has about a 1 percent stake in the
ranch, with the rest owned by a trust on the Isle of Man, the
report related.

In a filing in federal bankruptcy court in Dallas, Mr. Wyly said
the plan should be approved because the details of any sale
agreement, including the treatment of the proceeds, would need
additional court approval anyway, the report further related.

As previously reported by The Troubled Company Reporter, the IRS is
seeking to recoup $3.22 billion from Mr. Wyly and the estate of his
late brother Charles Wyly, after the brothers allegedly hid income
by setting up sham overseas trusts.  The IRS believes Samuel Wyly
owes $2.03 billion in back taxes, interest and penalties, while his
brother's estate owes $1.19 billion.

                         About Samuel Wyly

Samuel Wyly filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection (Bankr.
N.D. Tex. Case No. 14-35043) on Oct. 19, 2014, weeks after a judge
ordered him to pay several hundred million dollars in a civil
fraud case.  In September 2014, a federal judge ordered Mr. Wyly
and the estate of his deceased brother to pay more than $300
million in sanctions after they were found guilty of committing
civil fraud to hide stock sales and nab millions of dollars in
profits.

                        About Caroline Wyly

Caroline Wyly is the widow of business tycoon Charles Wyly.  She
and her brother-in-law Sam Wyly sought Chapter 11 bankruptcy
protection as leverage to settle a looming tax bill and a $329
million claim from the Securities and Exchange Commission.  Her
bankruptcy is In re Caroline D. Wyly, 14-35074, in U.S. Bankruptcy
Court, Northern District Texas (Dallas).


SCRIPT RELIEF: S&P Assigns 'B+' Rating; Outlook Stable
------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its 'B+' rating to New
York City-based pharmaceutical discount card provider Script Relief
LLC.  The rating outlook is stable.

At the same time, S&P assigned its 'B+' issue-level rating to
Script Relief's proposed $205 million term loan, reflecting S&P's
expectation for meaningful recovery in the event of payment default
(at the high end of the 50% to 70% range).

Script Relief markets free pharmaceutical discount cards to
uninsured and under-insured Americans.  Utilizing drug discounts
and pharmacy network contracts provided by its partner and partial
owner, pharmacy benefit manager Catamaran Corp., the company
provides cardholders with discounted pricing on most prescription
drugs at the majority of pharmacies in the U.S.

Script Relief's cards are marketed under a variety of trade names
through stands placed in medical offices, direct mail, and digital
marketing methods.  Although the company's contractual relationship
with Catamaran and the scale that it has built in a fragmented
industry provide a moderate competitive advantage, S&P expects that
Script Relief will need to continually invest in new customer
acquisitions to grow the business.  While Script Relief has
successfully increased revenues and profitability since it was
founded in late 2011 and generates margins that S&P views as
above-average relative to consumer services peers, the company has
only a three-year track record as an operating entity.  In
addition, while Script Relief is the largest player in the very
fragmented pharmaceutical discount card market, S&P views its
business as very narrowly focused, and its market share of the $22
billion cash-pay prescription market is only around 7%.
Collectively, these factors support S&P's assessment of a "weak"
business risk profile.

"Our stable rating outlook reflects our expectation that Script
Relief will generate flat to low single-digit EBITDA growth over
the next year, and that the company will maintain leverage between
2x to 4x over time," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Shannan
Murphy.  It also incorporates S&P's expectation that the company
will generate about $50 million in discretionary cash flow each
year, which S&P expects will primarily be returned to
shareholders.

S&P could lower the rating if Script Relief encounters increased
competition, resulting in meaningfully higher customer acquisition
costs to maintain the same revenue base.  In S&P's view, this could
result in FFO to total debt being sustained below 20% over time.
In S&P's view, customer acquisition costs would need to increase to
around 43% of revenues (from about 33% today) before this scenario
would occur.  Incremental debt over the $150 million S&P sees as
current capacity could also prompt a lower rating.

Given the company's very small scale and limited track record, S&P
views a rating upgrade over the next year as highly unlikely.


SPECTRUM BRANDS: Fitch Affirms 'BB-' Issuer Default Rating
----------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed the 'BB-' Issuer Default Rating (IDR)
and Stable Outlook for Spectrum Brands (Spectrum).  The affirmation
follows announcement that Spectrum will be acquiring Armored
AutoGroup Parent, Inc., (AAG) for approximately $1.4 billion
including assumed debt or 10x adjusted 2015 EBITDA.

The acquisition will be funded with $1 billion in debt and $500
million in share issuances.  Fitch's calculated pro forma leverage
on an as reported basis at the LTM Dec. 31, 2014, which excludes
any synergies and less than a full year of AAG's acquisition of the
A/C Pro business in March 2014, is 5.5X.

Fitch will address specific facility ratings as the transaction
gets closer to completion and further information is provided.

Spectrum's 'BB-' rating encompasses periodic spikes in leverage to
accommodate accretive acquisitions such as AAG.  Spectrum is
expected to direct the bulk of FCF towards debt reduction such that
(Debt/EBITDA) leverage should return to under 4.5x in 18 to 24
months.  Fitch had previously anticipated annual FCF to be in the
$300 million to $400 million range and with AAG expected to
generate around $60 million after a full year, Fitch's expectations
are now closer to the top end.  The company should comfortably
reduce leverage within 18 months with EBITDA growth and debt
reduction.

AAG is controlled by Avista Capital Partners and produces and
markets auto-care products mainly under the ArmorAll appearance and
STP performance additives brands.  Sixty seven percent of its $300
million in reported revenues at Dec. 31, 2014 were generated in the
U.S and its EBITDA margin of 26% is well above Spectrum's roughly
17%.  Further, it brings a new channel in the automotive aftercare
market and further category diversity.

KEY ASSUMPTIONS

FCF of $300 million to $400 million in the 2015 and 2016 fiscal
year will be directed towards debt reduction to return leverage
under 4.5x within 18 to 24 months.

No material changes in integration or management distraction to the
remaining businesses such that there are market share losses in
existing major categories.

Terms and conditions of newly issued debt is pari passu with
existing outstanding notes.

KEY RATING DRIVERS

Diversification and Marketing Strategy Leads to Solid Results

The firm's value-based market strategy and highly diversified
product portfolio has resonated well with retail customers and
consumers.  Organic growth rates have averaged 2% over the past
five years, near the low- to mid-point of the household and
personal care sector.  Modest sales growth, accretive acquisitions,
and cost controls have led to improving margins and ample free cash
flow (FCF).  Much of the company's FCF has historically been
directed toward debt reduction.  Fitch expects that to continue
into 2015 and 2016.

Short-Term Increases in Leverage Expected

Spectrum is acquisitive which results in periodic but temporary
increases in leverage.  Over the past five years leverage has been
as low as 3.4x and as high as 6.6x but has generally hovered in the
4.5x territory.  Generally, Fitch expects the company to operate
with leverage just under 4.5x.  The company's track record on
acquisitions has been positive.  On the whole, acquisitions have
been accretive and well-integrated.

Spectrum's leverage increased to the mid-6x range in December 2012
after purchasing Stanley Black & Decker, Inc.'s Hardware & Home
Improvement Group (HHI) for $1.4 billion.  Fitch's expectation for
leverage to return below 4.5x at the fiscal year ended Sept. 30,
2014, was comfortably met.  The 4.1x result was due to better than
expected EBITDA growth and more than $200 million of FCF being
directed towards debt reduction.  Leverage increased moderately at
the end of the first quarter of 2015 to 4.7x to accommodate roughly
$430 million in debt issued during December 2014.  Proceeds were
mainly used to finance the acquisition of Tell Manufacturing, Inc.
(Tell) and Procter & Gamble's European pet food business (Pet).

Improved FCF

Spectrum's FCF improved to the $300 million range in 2014, in line
with Fitch's expectations after being below $200 million in each of
the previous five years.  HHI, a large acquisition, added roughly
$1 billion in revenues and EBITDA margins that were higher than
Spectrum's.  Efficient working capital management is also a factor
in the company's overall improvement although it is not likely to
be as strong a contributor to cash flows going forward. Fitch
expects FCF to be near the high end of the $300 million to $400
million range in FY2016, nicely bolstered by the AAG acquisition.
It is likely to be near the low end in 2015 with the attendant
expenses related to making a sizeable acquisition as well as
integration costs.

Spectrum began recording residual U.S. and foreign taxes on
undistributed foreign earnings since 2012 in order to accelerate
pay down of U.S. debt, as well as fund distributions to
shareholders etc.  As a result, Fitch views much of Spectrum's cash
balance as unrestricted and available to reduce debt.

Corporate Governance

Spectrum is a controlled company.  Harbinger Group Inc. (HRG, Fitch
IDR 'B'/Outlook Positive) owns approximately 59% of Spectrum.  HRG
has pledged a portion of its Spectrum shares as collateral for its
own debt and is also dependent on its portfolio companies for cash
flow.  However, restrictive and financial covenants in Spectrum's
debt facilities, as well as HRG's focus on maintaining moderate
debt levels at its portfolio companies, should preserve good credit
protection measures.

Cyclicality/Commodity Exposure Increases Modestly

The ArmorAll Brand which is automotive appearance related
represented approximately 55% of AAG's $298 million in reported
2014 revenues.  There is some modest cyclicality as these purchases
have tended to be more discretionary and correlates to new car
purchases.  Both ArmorAll and STP use jet fuel as an ingredient,
which is currently benefiting from lower oil prices, but prices can
be volatile.  Nonetheless, given that AAG will contribute to less
than 10% of Spectrum revenues, any spikes should be manageable
within the larger enterprise and likely to be hedged.  Fitch
estimates that cyclical products lines such as hardware, small
appliances and AAG increases the cyclical portion of the company's
portfolio by about 5% to approximately 50%.

RATING SENSITIVITIES

Negative: Any change in financial strategy such that leverage is
consistently and materially sustained at higher than 5x levels
could have negative rating implications.  This is likely to be
driven by material transformative acquisitions, which may make
strategic sense, but could limit financial flexibility.  Fitch
would be concerned if there are material market share or secular
declines in categories generating a meaningful portion of FCF, such
as a combination of Home and Garden and HHI.

Positive: Spectrum's business momentum and credit protection
measures were generally improving before the recent spate of
acquisitions.  However, the potential for an upgrade is likely low
in the near term until the company closes, integrates and
sustainably operates with leverage under 4x.  The company has good
cash flow generation and could comfortably operate with lower
leverage if the pace and size of discretionary acquisitions
falters.  However, recent history has shown this likelihood to be
low given the company's acquisitive posture.

Fitch affirms Spectrum's ratings as:

The Rating Outlook is Stable.


SPROUTS FARMERS: S&P Raises CCR to 'BB'; Outlook Stable
-------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services raised its corporate credit
rating on Sprouts Farmers Market Inc. to 'BB' from 'BB-'.  The
rating outlook is stable.

S&P also assigned its 'BB+' issue-level rating and '2' recovery
rating to operating subsidiary Sprouts Farmers Market Holdings
LLC's $450 million revolving credit facility due 2020.  The '2'
recovery rating indicates S&P's expectation for substantial (higher
end of the 70% to 90% range) recovery for lenders in the event of a
payment default.

The company drew down about $260 million on the revolving credit,
to repay the outstanding amount of the company's term loan.  S&P is
withdrawing its 'BB-' corporate credit rating and 'BB' issue-level
rating and '2' recovery rating on Sprouts Farmers Markets Holdings
LLC, given the debt repayment.

"The upgrade reflects our view that Sprouts will continue to
increase profits and improve credit metrics, as it successfully
executes its growth strategy into new markets," said credit analyst
Kristina Koltunicki.  "It also incorporates our expectation that
the company will continue to generate strong top-line growth and
continue to deleverage over the next year, outpacing debt from new
operating leases incurred to support that growth.  Any further
upward momentum in the rating would be predicated on a continued
improvement in credit measures, and a continued expansion in the
company's top line and margin growth, evidenced by increasing sales
volumes, margin improvement, and
geographic expansion."

The stable rating outlook reflects S&P's expectation that credit
protection measures will continue to improve in 2015, based on a
combination of continued debt prepayment and EBITDA growth.  S&P
believes the company will be able to execute on its robust growth
strategy into new markets successfully.  However, the company's
scale, scope, and diversity remain less favorable than larger
peers.

S&P could lower the rating on Sprouts if operating performance
turns weaker, potentially because of missteps in store expansion
execution and increased competitive pressures.  Under this
scenario, gross margin would decline approximately 100 bps while
comparable-store sales growth would be flat, leading to leverage
increasing to the mid-3.0x area.  S&P could also lower the rating
if financial policies become more aggressive, evidenced by
debt-financed share repurchases, causing leverage to increase to
similar levels.

S&P could raise its ratings over the next 12 months if operating
performance continues to improve and credit protection measures,
such as FFO/debt of more than 40% and EBITDA interest coverage of
more than 8x, result in an improved financial risk profile, which
S&P would revise to "intermediate".  An upgrade would also further
necessitate a clear view on the company's financial policies
including the likelihood of more aggressive debt-financed
shareholder friendly activities that could deteriorate credit
ratios from forecasted levels.  S&P also would expect that the
company's scale, scope, and diversity will continue to expand in
terms of geographic diversity and its size of revenues.

SWEPORTS LTD: Asks High Court to Mull Mootness of Post-Ch. 11 Fees
------------------------------------------------------------------
Law360 reported that Sweports Ltd. has asked the U.S. Supreme Court
to determine whether a bankruptcy case's dismissal bars a
creditors' committee from seeking about $1.1 million in fees in
Chapter 11 court, saying the Seventh Circuit's decision to
recognize such jurisdiction creates a circuit split and defies the
doctrine of mootness.

According to the report, Sweports, which owned nondebtor subsidiary
UMF Corp., a manufacturer of antimicrobial cleaning products,
petitioned the high court to revisit the Seventh Circuit's
unanimous decision that the fees request -- brought the creditor
committee's counsel, Neal L. Wolf, on behalf of himself and
financial consultant Pierre Benoit & Associates Inc. -- fell under
the "cleanup jurisdiction" of bankruptcy courts in the wake of a
Chapter 11 dismissal.

The case is Sweports Ltd. v. Much Shelist PC et al., case number
14-1226, in the Supreme Court of the United States.

                          About Sweports

Sweports, Ltd., owns patents and a subsidiary called UMF
Corporation that manufactures antimicrobial cleaning products; UMF
apparently is Sweports' principal asset.  An involuntary Chapter
11
petition (Bankr. N.D. Ill. Case No. 12-14254) was filed against
Sweports, Ltd., based in Skokie, Illinois, on April 9, 2012.

Sweports, Ltd., is represented by Ariel Weissberg at Weissberg &
Associates, Ltd.  The creditors who signed the involuntary
petition
are Michael J. O'Rourke, Michael C. Moody and John A. Dore,
judgment creditors who assert they are each owed $345,000.  Neal
L.
Wolf, Esq., at Neal Wolf & Associates, LLC, represents the
petitioning creditors.  On Nov. 21, 2012, the Court entered an
Order for Relief in the case.

Since then, Sweports has been managing its assets as a debtor-in-
possession.  Judge A. Benjamin Goldgar is presiding over the case.

On Dec. 12, 2012, the Office of the United States Trustee for the
Northern District of Illinois appointed these creditors to serve
on the Committee: Lee N. Abrams, John A. Dore, Michael C. Moody,
Michael O'Rourke and Perkaus & Farley, LLC. Mr. Moody is the
Chairperson.  The Committee retained Neal Wolf & Associates, LLC,
as counsel.

Both Sweports and the Official Committee filed plans of
reorganization. The bankruptcy judge rejected both plans. The U.S.
Trustee then moved that Sweports' bankruptcy either be converted
from Chapter 11 to Chapter 7 (liquidation) or dismissed. Neither
Sweports nor the creditors favored conversion, and so the
bankruptcy judge dismissed the bankruptcy on April 30, 2014.

WALTER ENERGY: Stockholders Elect 8 Directors
---------------------------------------------
Walter Energy, Inc., held its 2015 annual meeting of stockholders
on April 23, 2015, at which the stockholders elected Mary R. "Nina"
Henderson, Jerry W. Kolb, Patrick A. Kriegshauser, Joseph B.
Leonard, Bernard G. Rethore, Walter J. Scheller, III, Michael T.
Tokarz and A.J. Wagner to the Board of Directors.

The stockholders also ratified the appointment of Ernst & Young LLP
as the Company's independent registered public accounting firm for
the fiscal year ending Dec. 31, 2015.

The stockholders did not approve, on an advisory basis, the
compensation of the Company's named executive officers.

traded "pure-play" metallurgical coal producer for the global steel
industry with strategic access to steel producers in Europe, Asia
and South America.  The Company also produces thermal coal,
anthracite, metallurgical coke and coal bed methane gas.  Walter
Energy employs approximately 2,700 employees, with operations in
the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom.

For the year ended Dec. 31, 2014, the Company reported a net loss
of $471 million following a net loss of $359 million in 2013.

As of Dec. 31, 2014, Walter Energy had $5.38 billion in total
assets, $5.10 billion in total liabilities, and $282 million in
stockholders' equity.

                            *    *    *

As reported by the TCR on April 21, 2015, Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services lowered its corporate credit rating on Walter Energy Inc.
to 'D' from 'CCC+'.  

"We lowered the ratings on Birmingham, Ala.-based coal miner Walter
Energy after the company elected not to pay approximately $62
million in aggregate interest payments on its 9.5% senior secured
notes due 2019 and its 8.5% senior notes due 2021.  A payment
default has not occurred under the indentures governing the notes,
which provide a 30-day grace period. However, we consider a default
to have occurred because we do not expect a payment to be made
within the stated grace period given the company's heavy debt
burden, which we view to be unsustainable. In our opinion, the
company has sufficient liquidity to operate over the next several
months as it works with creditors to restructure its balance sheet.
Cash and investments totaled approximately $435 million on March
31, 2015."

The TCR reported on July 10, 2014, that Moody's downgraded the
Corporate Family Rating of Walter Energy to 'Caa2' from 'Caa1'.
"The downgrade in the corporate family rating reflects the
anticipated deterioration in performance, increased cash burn and
increase in leverage, given the recent met coal benchmark
settlement of $120 per tonne for high quality coking coal and our
expectation that meaningful recovery in metallurgical coal markets
is twelve to eighteen months away."

As reported by the TCR on Nov. 20, 2014, Standard & Poor's Rating
Services raised its corporate credit rating on Westmoreland Coal
Co. one-notch to 'B' from 'B-'.  "The stable outlook is supported
by Westmoreland's committed sales position over the next year,
which should result in stable cash flows," said Standard & Poor's
credit analyst Chiza Vitta.

Moody's upgraded the corporate family rating (CFR) of Westmoreland
Coal Company to 'B3' from 'Caa1', and assigned 'Caa1' rating to
the company's proposed new $300 million First Lien Term Loan, the
TCR reported on Nov. 20, 2014.  The upgrade of the CFR reflects the
company's successful integration of the Canadian mines acquired in
April 2014, and Moody's expectation that the company's Debt/ EBITDA
will track at around 5x in 2015 and 2016 and that the
company will be break-even to modestly free cash flow positive
over the same time period.

XPO LOGISTICS: S&P Affirms 'B' CCR; Outlook Remains Stable
----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it has affirmed its
'B' corporate credit rating on XPO Logistics Inc.  The outlook
remains stable.

"Our ratings on XPO reflect its highly leveraged capital structure,
aggressive growth strategy, and its position as one of the larger
and more diversified providers in the fragmented U.S. third-party
logistics market," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Tatiana
Kleiman.  The company has set an aggressive growth target of $9
billion in revenues and $575 million of EBITDA by 2017.  Following
the company's proposed acquisition of Norbert Dentressangle, its
pro forma revenues and earnings will increase substantially and
nearly achieve management's 2017 growth targets, rising to about
$8.5 billion and $545 million, respectively.  XPO is supplementing
its growth-by-acquisition strategy with internal investments to
further expand its scale and scope.

In September 2014, the company received a $700 million equity
infusion to help fund its growth plans.  XPO has indicated that it
expects to complete the Norbert Dentressangle acquisition in the
first half of 2015.  The firm's funds from operations (FFO)-to-debt
ratio was 7.2% in 2014, however, that included only a partial year
of cash flows from its acquired businesses.  In 2015, S&P expects
XPO's credit measures to improve somewhat, pro forma for a full
year's contribution from Norbert Dentressangle, with the extent of
the improvement influenced by the proportion of debt the company
uses to fund the acquisition.

The stable outlook reflects that, over the next 12-18 months, S&P
expects XPO to benefit from its acquisition of Norbert
Dentressangle and other acquisitions it completed in 2014, all of
which have and will continue to increase the company's scale and
improve its earnings potential.  However, S&P also expects the
company to continue pursuing its aggressive growth strategy and
believe that the company will likely use debt to fund a significant
portion of its growth.  As a result, S&P do not believe that its
credit metrics will improve enough to warrant an upgrade over the
next year.

S&P could lower its rating on the company if its FFO-to-debt ratio
is consistently in the mid-single-digit percent area or lower. This
could occur if XPO experiences problems managing its growth and
integrating its acquisitions, or if it is even more aggressive than
S&P expects in pursuing acquisitions or investments and the company
continues to consume cash with little prospect for improvement.
S&P could also lower the rating if the company uses a materially
higher portion of debt to fund the acquisition than S&P expects.

While unlikely in the near-term, if XPO moderates its growth
strategy, begins to generate positive operating cash flow, and its
FFO-to-debt ratio improves to the mid-teens percentage-wise and S&P
believes it will stay there, S&P could raise the rating.


YELLOWSTONE MOUNTAIN: Appellate Court Denies Founder's Jail Release
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Patrick Fitzgerald, writing for The Wall Street Journal, reported
that a two-judge panel of the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals
ordered Tim Blixseth, the former billionaire and founder of the
luxurious Yellowstone Club ski and golf resort, to remain in a
Montana jail on his birthday while it reviews a lower court order
to hold him in contempt until he accounts for millions of dollars
he owes creditors.

According to the report, the Ninth Circuit denied a bid by the
developer's lawyer to immediately release Mr. Blixseth from the
Cascade County Detention Center in Great Falls, Mont.  A U.S.
District Judge had jailed Mr. Blixseth for contempt after the judge
said he failed to comply with an order to account for the proceeds
from the $13.8 million sale of a resort in Mexico, the report
related.

Club for $115 million.

Marc S. Kirschner, Esq., was appointed the Trustee of the
Yellowstone Club Liquidating Trust created under the Plan.


ZOGENIX INC: Closes Sale of Zohydro ER Business to Ferrimill
------------------------------------------------------------
Zogenix, Inc., closed on April 24, 2015, the previously announced
sale of its Zohydro ER business to Ferrimill (the substitute
purchaser appointed by Pernix), according to a document filed with
the Securities and Exchange Commission.  

At the Closing, the Company received $80 million in cash, $10
million of which has been deposited in escrow to fund potential
indemnification claims for a period of 12 months, and 1,682,086
shares of Pernix Therapeutics common stock.  As previously
reported, the Company, in addition to agreeing to indemnification
provisions customary for transactions of this nature, has also
agreed to indemnify Ferrimill for certain intellectual property
matters up to an aggregate amount of $5 million.

In addition to the cash payment paid at Closing, the Company is
eligible to receive additional cash payments of up to $283.5
million based on the achievement of pre-determined milestones,
including a $12.5 million payment upon approval by the U.S. Food
and Drug Administration of an abuse-deterrent extended-release
hydrocodone tablet (currently in development in collaboration with
Altus Formulation Inc.) and up to $271 million in potential sales
milestones.  Pursuant to the Asset Purchase Agreement, Ferrimill
has agreed to use commercially reasonable efforts to meet those
milestones.  Furthermore, Ferrimill will assume responsibility for
the Company's obligations under the purchased contracts and
regulatory approvals, as well as other liabilities associated with
the Zohydro ER business arising after the Closing date.  The
Company will retain all liabilities associated with the Zohydro ER
business arising prior to the Closing date.

On April 23, 2015, in connection with the sale by Zogenix of its
Zohydro ER business pursuant to the Asset Purchase Agreement, the
Company, Oxford Finance LLC and Silicon Valley Bank entered into an
amendment to the loan and security agreement, dated Dec. 30, 2014,
among the Company, Oxford, as collateral agent, and the lenders
party thereto from time to time, including Oxford and SVB.  The
Loan Amendment added an affirmative covenant requiring the Company
to maintain a liquidity ratio of 1.25 to 1 through the Company's
receipt of positive data from placebo-controlled trials in the
United States and European Union of ZX008.  All encumbrances on the
Company's personal property related to its Zohydro ER business
under the Loan and Security Agreement were terminated.  The
Company's remaining obligations under the Loan and Security
Agreement remain substantially unchanged.

Also on April 23, 2015, the Company entered into an amendment to
the Asset Purchase Agreement, dated as of March 10, 2015, with
Pernix Ireland Limited and Pernix Therapeutics Holdings, Inc., as
guarantor, pursuant to which, among other things, the composition
of the purchase price was amended to increase the portion payable
in cash from $30 million to $80 million in lieu of the initially
contemplated $50 million secured promissory note from Pernix.

The Company committed to a restructuring plan in conjunction with
the sale of the Zohydro ER business in which approximately 100
employees will transition employment to Pernix.  The Company also
plans to reduce its workforce by an additional 16 employees as a
result of this sale.  The Company expects to record charges of
approximately $0.5 million for personnel costs associated with
these actions.  The charges that the Company expects to incur in
connection with the plan are subject to a number of assumptions,
and actual results may materially differ.  The Company may also
incur other material charges not currently contemplated due to
events that may occur as a result of, or that are associated with,
the plan.  The Company expects to complete the plan by the end of
the third quarter of 2015.

[*] Ch. 11 Reforms Seen Pushing Restructurings Out of Court
-----------------------------------------------------------
Law360 reported that commercial creditors will pursue more debt
restructurings that don't require stepping foot in bankruptcy court
if lawmakers heed an influential reform commission's calls to cut
back secured lender rights, experts said at a discussion.

According to the report, citing panelists at an American Bankruptcy
Institute Conference in Washington, D.C., a set of reform proposals
designed to strip away key protections that lenders currently enjoy
under Chapter 11 would force secured creditors to protect their
interests by keeping borrowers from entering a contested
bankruptcy.


[*] Energy Defaults Resurface in U.S. Leveraged Loans, Fitch Says
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Energy sector defaults hit the institutional leveraged loan market
in March for the first time since December 2013, according to Fitch
Ratings.  At end-March 2015, the energy trailing 12-month (TTM)
sector institutional leveraged loan default rate stood at 1.7%,
higher than its 1% long-term average.

Chapter 11 bankruptcy filings in March by Quicksilver Resources and
Cal Dive International serve as bellwethers, with the default rate
expected to rise further on Shoreline Energy's early April
bankruptcy filing and Sabine Oil and Gas' April 21 missed interest
payment.  Samson Investment is also engaged in restructuring
discussions.

"The energy sector will remain an outlier for leveraged loan
defaults while it navigates the current rough patch," says Eric
Rosenthal, Senior Director of Leveraged Finance.

The overall TTM leveraged loan default rate fell to 3.6% in March
from 3.9% in February.  Average coverage improved to 3.4x at
year-end 2014 from 3x one year earlier, while revenue and EBITDA
also increased over the same timeframe.  Average leverage declined
10% over the past year to 5x from 5.5x.

The institutional leveraged loan market grew 18% over the past
year.  Covenant-lite facilities comprise 58% of the outstanding
universe and will likely remain high.

Despite the increased energy default rate, the industry comprises
just 5% of outstanding institutional leveraged loans compared with
18% of the high yield bond market.  At 14% services and
miscellaneous is the largest sector, followed by computers and
electronics, and healthcare and pharmaceutical.

Business is war by civilized means.  It won't get you a tailhook
landing on an n aircraft carrier docked in San Diego, but the
spoils of war can be glorious to behold.

Most executives do not approach business this way.  They are
content to nudge along their behemoths, cash their options, and
pillage their workers.  This author calls those managers "inertia
ridden."  He quotes Carl Icahn describing their companies as run
by "gross and widespread incompetent management."

In cycles though, the U.S. economy generates a few business
warriors with the drive, or hubris, to treat the market as a
battlefield.  The 1980s saw the last great spectacle of business
titans clashing.  (The '90s, by contrast, was an era of the
investment banks waging war on the gullible.)  The Money Wars is
the story of the last great buyout boom.  Between 1982 and 1988,
more than ten thousand transactions were completed within the U.S.
alone, aggregating more than $1 trillion of capitalization.

Roy Smith has written a breezy read, traversing the reader through
an important piece of U.S. history, not just business history. Two
thirds of the way through the book, after covering early twentieth
century business history, the growth of financial engineering
after WWII, the conglomerate era, the RJR-Nabisco story, and the
financial machinations of KKR, we finally meet the star of the
show, Michael Milken.  The picture painted by the author leads the
reader to observe that, every now and then, an individual comes
along at the right time and place in history who knows exactly
where he or she is in that history, and leaves a world-historical
footprint as a result.  Whatever one may think of Milken's ethics
or his priorities, the reader will conclude that he is the
greatest financial genius this country has produced since J.P.
Morgan.

No high-flying financial era has ever happened in this country
without the frothy market attracting common criminals, or in some
cases making criminals out of weak, but previously honest men (and
it always seems to be men).  Something there is about testosterone
and money.  With so many deals being done, insider trading was
inevitable.  Was Michael Milken guilty of insider trading?
Probably, but in all likelihood, everybody who attended his lavish
parties, called "Predators' Balls," shared the same information.
Why did the Justice Department go after Milken and his firm,
Drexel Burnham Lambert with such raw enthusiasm?  That history has
not yet been written, but Drexel had created a lot of envy and
enemies on the Street.

When a better history of the period is written, it will be a study
in the confluence of forces that made Michael Milken's genius
possible: the sclerotic management of irrational conglomerates, a
ready market for the junk bonds Milken was selling, and a few
malcontent capitalist like Carl Icahn and Ted Turner, who were
ready and able to wage their own financial warfare.

This book is a must read for any student of business who did not
live through any of these fascination financial eras.

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.

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

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

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

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