100M HOLDING: Opens New Restaurant in North Miami-Dade County
-------------------------------------------------------------
The popular restaurant chain from Spain, 100 Montaditos, on July 8
announced the opening of its newest U.S.-based location in Miami
Lakes, FL.  The Florida operator of the company -- which filed
voluntary petitions for Chapter 11 reorganization in March 2015 --
will open the doors of its new restaurant in the North Miami-Dade
County community on Tuesday, July 14.

"It is with great pride that we announce the opening of our newest
U.S. location and demonstrate our commitment to the U.S. market,
our customers, and existing franchisees," said Managing Director
Ignacio Garcia Nieto.  "We are confident that we will emergence
from bankruptcy later this year and look forward to continue
developing the Montaditos brand in the U.S."

Centrally located in the open-air shopping mall at 6843 Main
Street, Miami Lakes, the new 100 Montaditos location will embrace
the brand's credo of celebrating Spanish culture and providing
quality, inexpensive tapas-influenced sandwiches and offerings in
an inviting atmosphere.  The 1,300-square-foot location, which
includes a 490-square-foot patio and a total occupancy of 50 seats,
will be open from 11:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m., seven days a week.  In
honor of its grand opening, the restaurant will offer various
promotions to visiting customers throughout its first week,
including selected complimentary items from its revamped menu.

In March 2015, 100M Holding, Inc., the parent company that operates
the brand in the U.S., and 13 of its subsidiaries and affiliates
filed for relief under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy
Code in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern
District of Florida.  The bankruptcy, which only involves the
chain's Florida stores, is currently pending before the Honorable
A. Jay Cristol.

As part of the company's restructuring efforts, a new management
team was appointed and is being led by Garcia Nieto, who previously
served as the Franchise Development Director for 100 Montaditos in
the U.S. and Latin America.  As managing director, Garcia will be
responsible for overseeing the operations of the company and the
restructuring of its finances in the bankruptcy proceedings. He
will also manage and support operations of the restaurants operated
by 100 Montaditos franchisees.

The bankruptcy court recently approved a $400,000 financing loan to
the company from 100M Montaditos Internacional, S.L. which will be
used to fund certain operating expenses during the bankruptcy
proceedings.  Throughout the process, existing locations in Miami
(West Kendall, Midtown and Brickell), as well as in Tampa,
New York City, and Washington D.C., will remain open.

"100M is working diligently with the appointed Official Creditors
Committee to formulate a consensual reorganization plan, including
simplifying its cost structure and grouping its restaurant
locations to optimize logistics and related procedures," said
Bankruptcy Counsel Mariaelena Gayo-Guitian, a partner at
Miami-based Genovese, Joblove & Battista, P.A, which is
representing 100M Holding, Inc. along with law partner Paul J.
Battista.

An innovative concept founded in 2000 in Huelva, Spain, 100
Montaditos has exploded in popularity through the past decade with
the offering of its signature "Montaditos."  Deeply rooted in
Spanish tradition, the crunchy, baked-to-order, tapas-sized rolls
are presented in 100 variations and filled with authentic,
high-quality tapa ingredients such as Serrano ham, chorizo and
manchego cheese.  The sandwiches range in price from $2 to $3.  The
casual restaurant chain now operates 350 company-owned and
franchised restaurants in Belgium, Chile, Colombia, Guatemala,
Italy, Mexico, Portugal, Spain, and the United States.  100
Montaditos is owned by the Madrid-based restaurant holding company
Grupo Restalia, which also operates the beer pub franchise
Cervecería La Sureña and The Good Burger.

ADVANCED MICRO: S&P Revises Outlook to Neg. & Affirms 'B-' CCR
--------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it revised its rating
outlook on Sunnyvale, Calif.-based Advanced Micro Devices Inc.'s to
negative from stable.  At the same time, S&P affirmed its 'B-'
corporate credit rating on the company.

The outlook revision reflects AMD's recently sharpened revenue
declines, the weak industry conditions, the intense competition
from Intel Corp. in PC markets, and the challenges the company
faces to grow in targeted enterprise, embedded, and semi-custom
(EESC) product markets to offset PC business declines.

"In 2015, we expect that the company will generate revenues,
earnings, and cash flow significantly below our previous
forecasts," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst John Moore.  S&P
now expects revenues to decline by about 26% in 2015 versus its
prior expectation for a 20% decline.  S&P also expects 2015
adjusted EBITDA margins at about breakeven, down from its previous
forecast of about 6%-7%; and negative free cash flow of about $125
million, compared with S&P's previous estimate for weak to modestly
negative free cash flow.

S&P could lower the rating on AMD if its liquidity weakens such
that its cash balances declined to less than $500 million or if its
business declines persist further, impacting its liquidity
position.

S&P could revise the outlook to stable if AMD is able to stabilize
its revenue and earnings declines, and demonstrate improved
liquidity preservation.



ALLIED NEVADA: Suspends Mining Operations to Maximize Cash Flow
---------------------------------------------------------------
Allied Nevada Gold Corp. on July 8 disclosed that it has suspended
mining operations, effective immediately, to maximize cash flow and
minimize spending through the remainder of its chapter 11 process.
The Company will continue to process and produce gold and silver
through the operation of the heap leach pads and Merrill-Crowe
processing plants.  Inventory on the heap leach pads at June 30,
2015 was approximately 260,000 recoverable ounces of gold,
sufficient to maintain metal production for the next 12-18 months.

"This was a very difficult decision to make with the understanding
that it will impact our employees and the businesses and
communities that depend on the Hycroft Mine," commented Randy
Buffington, President & CEO of Allied Nevada.  "However, the
current metal price environment, cost pressures and workforce
challenges we have encountered over the last few months have
adversely impacted our ability to meet our operating goals.  This
change, while unfortunate, is critical to getting the Company
through the bankruptcy process."

In addition to continuing metal process operations, Allied Nevada
intends to complete construction of and operate a 10 ton per day
mill demonstration plant for processing of sulfide ores.  The
demonstration plant is expected to start-up in September 2015 and
will include all phases of the mill process flow sheet, from
grinding and flotation through AAO and precious metals recovery.
The primary goal of the demonstration plant is to further
substantiate the conclusions of the feasibility study regarding the
processing of sulfide ores and constructing a mill, including that
the assumptions for proposed capital, and whether operating and
recovery projections are attainable in a commercial setting.

At this time Allied Nevada does not have an expected time-frame
for, or an expectation with respect to, the restart of mining
operations, if at all.  The Company is continuing to work with its
primary creditor constituencies to formulate modifications to its
previously filed proposed plan of reorganization in order to emerge
from chapter 11 as soon as possible.

                       About Allied Nevada

Allied Nevada Gold Corp. ("ANV"), a Delaware corporation, is a
publicly traded U.S.-based gold and silver producer engaged in
mining, developing and exploring properties in the State of
Nevada.

ANV was spun off from Vista Gold Corp. in 2006 and began operations
in May 2007.  Nevada-based mining properties acquired from Vista
include the Hycroft Mine, an open-pit heap leach operation located
54 miles west of Winnemucca, Nevada.  ANV controls 75 exploration
properties throughout Nevada as of
Dec. 31, 2014.

On March 10, 2015, ANV and 13 affiliated debtors each filed a
voluntary petition for relief under Chapter 11 of the U.S.
Bankruptcy Code in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Delaware.  The Debtors have requested that their cases
be jointly administered under Case No. 15-10503.  The cases are
assigned to Judge Mary F. Walrath.

The Debtors have tapped Blank Rome LLP and Akin Gump Strauss Hauer
& Feld LLP as attorneys; FTI Consulting Inc. as financial advisor;
Moelis & Company as financial advisor; and Prime Clerk LLC as
claims and noticing agent.

ANV disclosed $941 million in total assets and $664 million in
total debt as of Dec. 31, 2014.

                       *     *     *

Allied Nevada Gold Corp., et al.'s plan of reorganization
incorporates the terms of the prepetition plan support agreement
reached by the Debtors with holders of at least 67% of the
aggregate outstanding principal amount of the Notes and 100% of the
Holders of Secured ABL Claims and Secured Swap Claims.

Pursuant to the plan support agreement, each Holder of an Allowed
Secured ABL Claim will receive (i) its Pro Rata share of the
Secured ABL/Swap Cash Payments not made prior to the Effective Date
and (ii) an amount of New First Lien Term Loans in an aggregate
principal amount equal to (A) the amount of allowed claims pursuant
to Section 2.7(b) of the Plan minus (B) the amount paid in cash in
respect of the Secured ABL Claims pursuant to clause (i) of Section
2.7(c) of the Plan.  In addition, for the avoidance of doubt, any
unpaid amounts owed to the holders of Secured ABL Claims pursuant
to Section 11 of the DIP Facility Order will be due and payable in
cash on the Effective Date.

--------------------------------------------------------------
Alpha Natural Resources, Inc., borrowed $445 million under a

the remaining borrowings for general corporate purposes, including
for working capital.

                           *     *     *

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.


ARCHDIOCESE OF ST. PAUL: Court Disapproves Dispute Settlement
-------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Robert J. Kressel of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Minnesota denied approval of Archdiocese of Saint Paul
and Minneapolis' expedited motion for approval of a settlement and
compromise of a dispute concerning appointment of a parish
committee in the Chapter 11 case of Archdiocese of Saint Paul and
Minneapolis.

The Debtor had moved the Court to authorize the settlement of a
controversy over (a) the status of certain funds held by the
Archdiocese and (b) appointment of an official parish committee,
all as set forth in a certain stipulation and agreement for payment
of Parish Counsel entered into between the Archdiocese, the
Committee of Unsecured Creditors, and the Represented Parishes.

According to parties, the stipulation provides a mechanism for
payment of the reasonable fees and expenses of Parish Counsel for
Represented Parishes in connection with insurance coverage issues
from Excess Funds in General Insurance Fund.

The Archdiocese commenced an action in the U.S. District Court for
the District of Minnesota seeking a declaration of its rights as to
coverage from certain insurance carriers for the claims by Sexual
Abuse Claimants.  The Coverage Action was transferred to this Court
on the Petition Date.  The Court stayed the Coverage Action and
ordered the parties to mediation before Hon. Arthur J. Boylan
(Ret.).

On March 18, 2015, a group of approximately 113 parishes filed a
motion for an order appointing a Creditors' Committee of Parishes.
The parish committee motion was supported or joined by other
parishes.

                            Objections

Several parties-in-interest opposed to the Motion.

The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors objected to the
expedited motion for an order authorizing settlement of a dispute
which it had previously supported.

The Church of Saint Anne - Saint Joseph Hien, an unsecured creditor
of the Debtor objected to the expedited motion, noting, among other
things:

   1. there is no basis for an expedited hearing;

   2. the proposed order authorizing settlement of a dispute
unfairly discriminates among similarly situated parishes.

The Church of St. Patrick of Edina, Minnesota, in its opposition,
relating that the Debtor has failed to demonstrate that expedited
relief must be granted by the Court.  The Parish Group asserted
that the stipulation does not settle a dispute; and the stipulation
improperly advances the interests of certain parishes.

St. Stephen's Catholic Church, in its objection, stated that the
dispute does not involve property of the estate, and the motion
improperly seeks from the court a "comfort order" providing
benefits to some parties and denying those to equally situated
parties.

                      Support for the Motion

Parishes, namely, The Guardian Angels Catholic Church of Oakdale,
Minnesota, a Minnesota Non-Profit Corporation, The Church of St.
Joseph, and The Church of St. Thomas Becket, asked the Court to
approve the motion for an appointment of committee of parishes and
the proposed settlement.

The Parishes are creditors of the Debtor based upon the payment of
the parishes to the General Insurance Fund and the Archdiocese
Medical Benefit Plan.

The Parishes said that the GIF has a surplus of approximately in
excess of reserve of approximately $3 million and the AMBP has a
surplus in excess of reserves of $14 million.  The Debtor
represented to the parishes that certain payments were required
from the parishes to the GIF and AMBP to provide insurance coverage
in accordance with the insurance provisions of the GIF and AMBP.  

Mary Jo A. Jensen-Carter, attorney for the Parish Group, which
consists of approximately 117 parishes located in the Archdiocese
of Saint Paul and Minneapolis, expressed support to the Debtor's
expedited motion for an order authorizing settlement of a dispute.

In light of the amount of legal fees the Parish Group has incurred
to date, however, the Parish Group needs immediate assurance that
the GIF funds will be available to pay its legal fees.  If that
assurance cannot be received immediately, the Parish Group will
have to instruct its attorneys to stop participating in the
mediation process, as the Parish Group does not have the financial
ability to pay for any additional legal services.

                    About Archdiocese of St. Paul

The Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis was originally
established by the Vatican in 1850 and serves a geographical area
consisting of 12 greater Twin Cities metro-area counties in
Minnesota, including Ramsey, Hennepin, Anoka, Carver, Chisago,
Dakota, Goodhue, Le Sueur, Rice, Scott, Washington, and Wright
counties.  There are 187 parishes and approximately 825,000
Catholic individuals in the region.  These individuals and parishes
are served by 3999 priests and 173 deacons.

The Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis filed for Chapter 11
protection (Bankr. D. Minn. Case No. 15-30125) in Minnesota on Jan.
16, 2015, saying it has large and growing liabilities related to
child sexual abuse and that its pension obligations are
underfunded.

The Debtor disclosed $45,203,010 in assets and $15,890,460 in
liabilities as of the Chapter 11 filing.

The Debtor has tapped Briggs and Morgan, P.A., as Chapter 11
counsel; BGA Management LLC d/b/a Alliance Management as financial
advisor; Lindquist & Vennum LLP as attorney.

Eleven other dioceses have commenced Chapter 11 bankruptcy cases in
the United States to settle claims from current and former
parishioners who say they were sexually molested by priests.

U.S. Trustee for Region 12 appointed five creditors to serve on the
official committee of unsecured creditors.

The U.S. Trustee appointed five creditors to serve on the Committee
of Parish Creditors.  Ginny Dwyer appointed as the acting
chairperson of the committee until such time as the members can
meet and officially elect their own person.

                             *   *   *

The Debtor's exclusive period for filing a Chapter 11 plan and
disclosure statement ends on Nov. 30, 2015.



ARGUS GROUP: A.M. Best Hikes Issuer Credit Rating from 'bb'
-----------------------------------------------------------
A.M. Best Co. has upgraded the issuer credit ratings (ICR) to
"bbb+" from "bbb" and affirmed the financial strength rating of B++
(Good) of Argus Insurance Company Limited (Argus Insurance) and
Bermuda Life Insurance Company Limited (Bermuda Life), both of
which are subsidiaries of Argus Group Holdings Limited (the Argus
Group) [BSE:AGH.BH].  Concurrently, A.M. Best has upgraded the ICR
to "bb+" from "bb" for the Argus Group.  The outlook for all
ratings is stable.  All companies are domiciled in Hamilton,
Bermuda.

The ratings upgrade reflects the Argus Group's consolidated premium
and earnings growth, the strengthening of its capital metrics and
improvement of its asset quality.  On a consolidated basis, the
Argus Group's underwriting and net income results improved over the
past three years driven primarily by positive earnings in the
health insurance segment.  In addition, the Argus Group has been
transitioning its investment portfolio to higher quality lower risk
assets.  As a result, asset valuation write-downs have been
minimal, and the stabilization of the investment portfolio has
resulted in stronger investment income.  Furthermore, the
transition of the investment portfolio also is achieving better
asset-liability matching.  The positive net income has allowed the
organization to strengthen its capital level through retained
earnings.  Bermuda Life (the organization's domestic life, annuity,
pension and health insurance subsidiary) reported strong net income
results, which were driven primarily by a lower loss ratio for its
health business achieved through various cost containment
initiatives.  The favorable earnings, as well as the amalgamation
with Somers Isles Insurance Company in 2013, has strengthened
Bermuda Life's capital level.  Furthermore, in order to increase
the quality of assets at Bermuda Life, the previously high level of
intercompany receivables has been reduced substantially though
dividends and asset transfer from an affiliate.  Argus Insurance,
the group's domestic property/casualty writer, continues to record
favorable underwriting and overall results in non-catastrophe years
and maintains more than adequate risk-adjusted capitalization.

Offsetting factors include a history of significant investment
losses and capital volatility.  In addition, Argus Insurance's
fiscal year-end 2015 results were negatively impacted by losses
incurred from Hurricanes Fay and Gonzalo in October 2014.
Furthermore, although the Argus Group is gradually growing its
European property/casualty operation, the geographic
diversification of consolidated premium and earning remains low.


BAHA MAR: U.S. Employees Could Go Unpaid July 10
------------------------------------------------
Stephanie Gleason, writing for Dow Jones' Daily Bankruptcy Review,
more than 60 U.S. employees of Baha Mar Ltd., the developer of a
$3.5 billion resort in the Bahamas, are unlikely to receive checks
on July 10, after a bankruptcy judge ruled that a payroll vendor
couldn't be forced to fund payroll for the bankrupt company.

According to the report, at an emergency hearing on July 9, Judge
Kevin Carey of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Wilmington, Del.,
preliminarily overruled Baha Mar's assertion that Strategic
Outsourcing Inc. was still contractually required to pay employees
in Florida and New Jersey, even if Baha Mar didn't forward the
funds.  Strategic Outsourcing argued that the request constituted a
loan and it wasn't obligated to forward any such credit, and Judge
Carey agreed, the report related.

                        About Bear Island

Canada-based White Birch Paper Company was the second largest
newsprint producer in North America.  As of Dec. 31, 2009, the
White Birch Group held a 12% share of the North American newsprint
market and employed roughly 1,300 individuals (the majority of
which reside in Canada).  Bear Island Paper Company, L.L.C., is a
U.S.-based unit of White Birch.

Bear Island filed a voluntary petition for relief under Chapter 11
of the Bankruptcy Code (Bankr. E.D. Va. Case No. 10-31202) on Feb.
24, 2010.  At June 30, 2011, the Company had $141.9 million in
total assets, $153.2 million in total liabilities, and a
stockholders' deficit of $11.3 million.

White Birch filed for bankruptcy protection under Canada's
Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act, before the Superior Court for
the Province of Quebec, Commercial Division, Judicial District of
Montreal, Canada.  White Birch and five other affiliates – F.F.
Soucy Limited Partnership; F.F. Soucy, Inc. & Partners, Limited
Partnership; Papier Masson Ltee; Stadacona Limited Partnership; and
Stadacona General Partner, Inc. -- also sought bankruptcy
protection under Chapter 15 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code (Bankr.
E.D. Va. Case No. 10-31234). Jonathan L. Hauser, Esq., at Troutman
Sanders LLP, in Virginia Beach, Virginia Beach, serves as counsel
to White Birch in the Chapter 11 case.

Richard M. Cieri, Esq., Christopher J. Marcus, Esq., and Michael A.

Chief Judge Douglas O. Tice, Jr., was initially assigned to handle
the Chapter 11 and Chapter 15 cases.  He retired from the court on
June 30, 2013.

Bear Island was authorized by the bankruptcy judge in November 2010
to sell the business to a group consisting of Black Diamond Capital
Management LLC, Credit Suisse Group AG and Caspian Capital Advisors
LLC.  The sale closed in September 2012.

The caption for Bear Island's case was changed to "Estate BIPCO,
LLC" as required by the asset sale agreement.

Under a plan proposed for Bear Island, first- and second-lien
creditors with $424.9 million and $105.1 million in claims,
respectively, are expected to recover between 0.5 percent and 4
percent.  Unsecured creditors with $1.4 million in claims are to
receive the same dividend.

In June 2015, the Troubled Company Reporter said the Hon. Keith L.
Phillips, who took over from Judge Tice, confirmed the first
amended Chapter 11 plan of liquidation filed by Estate BIPCO.

losses from operations, recurring cash used in operating activities
and accumulated deficit raise substantial doubt about its ability
to continue as a going concern.


BOOMERANG TUBE: Landlord Seeks to Repossess Mo. Property
--------------------------------------------------------
Forty West Partners, LLC, asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Delaware to lift the automatic stay imposed in the
Chapter 11 cases Boomerang Tube, LLC, et al., to repossess the real
property located at 14567 N. Outer Forty Drive, in St. Louis,
Missouri.

Forty West Partners is the owner of a five-storey commercial office
building located at 14567 N. Outer Forty Drive, in St. Louis,
Missouri.  Forty West leased out Suite 500, on the 5th floor of the
Building, to Debtor Boomerang Tube, LLC.  The Lease was terminated
on June 5, 2015, due to Boomerang's default in making rent
payments.

Ashley B. Stitzer, Esq., at Bayard, P.A., in Wilmington, Delaware,
tells the Court that the leasehold created under the Lease does not
constitute an asset of Boomerang's bankruptcy estate under Section
541 of the Bankruptcy Code, nor does the Lease constitute an
executory contract that Boomerang may assume in its Chapter 11
case.  Ms. Stitzer adds that Boomerang has no legal right to occupy
the Premises and that Forty West Partners is entitled under the
Lease and applicable Missouri law to terminate the possessory
interest of Boomerang in the Premises at its election and in its
sole discretion, and to retake possession of the Premises.  She
asserts that Boomerang has no equity in the Premises and the
Premises is not necessary for an effective reorganization.

BOWLES SUB PARCEL A: 8th Cir. Keeps Default Interest Claim Ruling
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit affirmed
a bankruptcy court's ruling in six consolidated Chapter 11 cases
that determined that a default-interest provision in a loan
agreement was a valid liquidated-damages provision under Minnesota
law.
The Appellants are six limited liability companies.  They own three
"pools" of commercial and industrial real estate that are subject
to mortgages held by the Registered Holders of J.P. Morgan Chase
Commercial Mortgage Securities Corp., Commercial Mortgage
Pass-Through Certificates, Series 2004-LN2 (the Trust).  The Trust
made three separate commercial loans to Debtors, pursuant to three
separate promissory notes, each with virtually identical provisions
except for the loan amounts, the collateral securing the loan, and
other related, loan-specific data.  

Relevant to this appeal, section 1.04(c) of the Notes provided that
upon a default, the interest rate on the remaining principal would
be 5% in addition to the non-default rate of 5.04%.

In May 2011, the Debtors defaulted on their loans; and in May 2012,
they filed for Chapter 11 protection in bankruptcy court. The Trust
then filed a proof of claim for default interest in the amount of
$1,516,739.80.  The Debtors objected to the claim.

Following the hearing in February 2013, the bankruptcy court
allowed the claim for default interest, finding that the Debtors
failed to rebut the presumption under Minnesota law that the
default-interest provision in the Notes was a valid
liquidated-damages provision.  The Debtors appealed to the district
court.  The district court affirmed, agreeing that the Debtors had
not presented sufficient evidence to overcome the default-interest
provision's presumptive validity.

In their Eighth Circuit appeal, Debtors argue the default-interest
provision is an unenforceable penalty under Minnesota law.  They
assert the bankruptcy court misapplied Minnesota law because it did
not require the Trust to prove its actual damages.

The Eighth Circuit said the Debtors misstate Minnesota law
concerning liquidated damages, and that the language of the Notes
themselves supports the stipulated damages provision's validity.

at http://is.gd/7NBunQfrom Leagle.com.

The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of California
granted in part, and denied in part, BR Enterprises' motion to
employ certified public accountants Evanhoe, Kellogg & Company.

The Court authorized the Debtor employ Evanhoe Kellogg to prepare
and file the Debtor's federal and state tax returns, nunc pro tunc
to Feb. 27, 2015.

The Court also ordered that compensation will be at the "lodestar
rate" applicable at the time that services are rendered in
accordance with the Ninth Circuit Decision in re: Manoa Finance Co.
No hourly rate referred to in the application papers is approved
unless unambiguously so stated in the order or in a subsequent
order of the Court.

The Court stated that except as provided in the order, the motion
is denied.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on May 7, 2015, the
Debtor requested for permission to employ Evanhoe Kellogg to
provide accountancy advice and prepare Debtor's tax returns.

Evanhoe Kellogg will provide to the Debtor general accounting
services advise and tax advice in connection with the bankruptcy
proceedings, and to prepare and file federal and state tax returns
as requested by the Debtor.

Evanhoe Kellogg will be paid at $225 per hour.

Evanhoe Kellogg Law will also be reimbursed for reasonable
out-of-pocket expenses incurred.

F. William Evanhoe, partner of Evanhoe Kellogg, assured the Court
that the firm is a "disinterested person" as the term is defined in
Section 101(14) of the Bankruptcy Code and does not represent any
interest adverse to the Debtors and their estates.

CALIFORNIA COMMUNITY: OK'd to Incur $2.2M Triwest Financial Loan
----------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of California
authorized California Community Cooperative, Inc., to incur
$2,200,000 postpetition secured financing from Triwest Financial
Groups, Inc.

The Court also ordered that the Debtor and Triwest will deliver to
California Bank & Trust, N.A., documents necessary to effect the
subordination of the security interest of Triwest to the existing
security interest of the Bank.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on May 5, 2015, the
Debtor, which owns an office building in San Bernardino,
California, obtained a new ten-year lease for 39,000 square feet of
space with Rex and Margaret Fortune School of Education which
substantially increases the space under lease at the Real Property.
The Debtor says the additional rental income from this lease will
permit it to file a plan of reorganization based on ongoing
business income and profits.

The Debtor has obtained a commitment to provide financing secured
by the real property, which financing is necessary to obtain the
needed leasehold improvements for the new lease with Fortune.  The
proposed financing is to be brokered by Triwest Financial Group of
San Diego, California.  The Debtor proposes to borrow $2,200,000,
which include a second deed of trust to secure the Debtor's
obligations under the loan documents.

The basic terms of the proposed financing are:

    * Loan amount: $2,200,000
    * Interest rate: 7% per year
    * Monthly payments: $12,833
    * Term of loan: 12 months
    * Collateral: second deed of trust against the real property.

The Debtor's real property is encumbered by a first deed of trust
in favor of California Bank & Trust, to secure an obligation of
$9,600,000 as of the Petition Date, and currently there are no
junior liens.

The Debtor believed that the lease with Fortune will add
considerable value to the property, which the Debtor estimates to
be no less than $15,000,000 with the Fortune lease in place (which
is $3,000,000 higher than the value the Debtor gave the Real
Property as of the Petition Date).  The proposed Triwest loan, in
the amount of $2,100,000, is more than offset by the value that the
Fortune lease adds to the Real Property, and the Bank's
first-priority security interest will benefit from a generous
equity cushion.

The Debtor said that the ongoing interest payments that the Debtor
will make to the Bank will provide additional protection to the
Bank's interest.

According to the Debtor, the proposed financing will assure that
the Debtor will obtain the benefit of the Lease with Fortune, rent
payments from which will help finance not just repayment of the
Triwest loan, but also help fund a Plan of Reorganization.  The
Debtor plans to refinance the Real Property after no more than 18
months to pay the Bank's claim in full.

              California Bank & Trust Has Objections

California Bank & Trust said that many contingencies, uncertainties
and open issues that must be resolved by the Debtor in certain
circumstances, and by third parties not under the control of the
Debtor in others before actual progress can or will occur, renders
this situation impossible for the Bank to monitor, and for the
Court to approve, at this single hearing.

The Bank noted that the situation has so many moving parts, and is
so fraught with uncertainties and contingencies, that the Bank
asked that the Court issue its orders in such a fashion so as to
keep the Debtor on a "short leash" for the time being, and that the
Court require the Debtor to identify and then meet certain
important benchmarks, progress thresholds and deadlines (or at
least periodically update and explain to the Court and the Bank's
satisfaction its progress regarding same) as a condition.

For example, the Bank notes that the Debtor will likely not be able
to meet its property tax and adequate protection obligations for
the month of June 2015, if the proposed junior secured financing
has not been funded by that time.  However, the proposed financing
is expressly contingent upon the issuance of, among other things, a
Conditional Use Permit ("CUP") by the appropriate planning
authorities of San Bernardino County.  However, the Debtor, under
the proposed agreements now before the Court, is NOT the party who
is responsible for applying for and otherwise seeking the CUP from
County authorities, but rather it is the proposed Tenant who is
responsible for preparing and prosecuting the application of the
CUP.

Similarly, the Bank notes the proposed Lease requires the Debtor to
fund more than $1.75 million in tenant improvements for the
proposed tenant's benefit before the proposed tenant becomes
obligated to occupy the Debtor's property and start paying rent.
However, the Debtor is NOT directly responsible under the lease for
the construction work that will actually be performed on the
property in order for the rent obligations under the lease to be
triggered, and the Debtor (apparently) will NOT be the party
contracting with the builder for such tenant improvements.  No
construction agreement is a part of any of the documents before the
Court, and no terms of any such agreement have been provided to the
Bank.  Apparently, the Bank points out, the Debtor is somehow
financially responsible for all tenant improvements to be built,
but has no ability to control or influence the scope or timing of
the construction work, which is apparently outside of the Debtor's
direct control, or remains the subject of further negotiation and
agreement.  This, at a minimum, requires further explanation and
consideration.

The Bank asserted that the appropriate decision for the Court to
make at the present time (indeed the only "decision" the Court can
make) is to:

  (a) require the Debtor to identify, document and commit to a
specific timetable regarding these (presently unidentified) various
documents, applications, benchmarks and submissions necessary for
the proposed lease or its funding to become a reality,

  (b) at a minimum, require the Debtor to commit to a specific
deadline for obtaining the CUP so that the Bank and the Court can
determine whether the funding of the proposed secured financing
(necessary for the Debtor's survival) and the construction of the
necessary tenant improvements have any possibility of taking place
before the Debtor runs out of cash, and then

  (c) authorize, for the time being, a limited use of the Bank's
cash collateral in accordance with the proposed Budget so that
these benchmarks, thresholds, applications and agreements to which
the Debtor's Motions refer can be monitored by both the Court and
the Bank to determine whether the Bank's relief from stay Motion
should continue to be held in abeyance.

                      About California Community

California Community Collaborative owns and rents to
non-residential tenants an office building located at 655 West 2nd
Street, San Bernardino, California.  The building was previously a
Mervyn's retail shopping center before it was acquired and later
remodeled into a two-story, 88,000 square foot office building.
The company was formed by Merrell Schexnydre, who is presently the
sole shareholder and president.

The Judicial Council of California leases about 26,000 square feet
of space at the building.

E.D. Cal. Case No. 14-26351) on June 17, 2014.  Mr. Schexnydre
signed the petition.  Judge Christopher M. Klein presides over the
case.  The Debtor estimated assets of at least $10 million and
liabilities of $1 million to $10 million.

The Debtor tapped Meegan, Hanschu & Kassenbrock as counsel and
CBRE-Inland Commercial Real Estate as broker.

The hearing to consider approval of the amended disclosure
statement explaining the Debtor's reorganization plan originally
scheduled for June 10, 2015, has been rescheduled to June 24 at
10:00 a.m.

The plan promises to pay creditors in installments and allows the
owner to retain control of the company. The Debtor will sell or
refinance the real property, and net proceeds after payment of the
claims secured by the property will be used to pay in full all
allowed claims secured by the property and to fund distributions
under the Plan.

                      About Caspian Services

Headquartered in Salt Lake City, Caspian Services, Inc., was
incorporated under the laws of the state of Nevada on July 14,
1998.  Since February 2002 the Company has concentrated its
business efforts to provide diversified oilfield services to the
oil and gas industry in western Kazakhstan and the Caspian Sea,
including providing a fleet of vessels, onshore, transition zone
and marine seismic data acquisition and processing services and a
marine supply and support base in the port of Bautino, in Bautino
Bay, Kazakhstan.

Caspian reported a net loss of $18.8 million on $29.9 million of
total revenue for the year ended Sept. 30, 2014, compared with a
net loss of $11.8 million on $33.08 million of total revenues for
the year ended Sept. 30, 2013.

As of March 31, 2015, the Company had $61.41 million in total
assets, $105 million in total liabilities, all current, and a $43.5
million total deficit.

The Company's independent auditors, Haynie & Company, P.C., in Salt
Lake City, Utah, issued a "going concern" qualification on the 2014
consolidated financial statements citing that, "[A] Company
creditor has indicated that it believes the Company may be in
violation of certain covenants of certain substantial financing
agreements.  The financing agreements have acceleration right
features that, in the event of default, allow for the loan and
accrued interest to become immediately due and payable."  According
to the auditors, as a result of this uncertainty, the Company has
included the note payable and all accrued interest as current
liabilities at Sept. 30, 2014.  At Sept. 30, 2014, the Company had
negative working capital of $85.0 million and for the year ended
Sept. 30, 2014, the Company had a net loss of $16.6 million."


CHELSEA PETROLEUM: S&P Assigns 'B+' ICR, Outlook Stable
-------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it assigned its 'B+' issuer
credit rating to Chelsea Petroleum Products I LLC.  The outlook is
stable.  At the same time, S&P assigned its 'BB-' issue rating and
'2' recovery rating to Chelsea's $425 million senior secured term
loan.  The '2' recovery rating indicates that lenders can expect
"substantial" (70% to 90%; lower half of the range) recovery if a
payment default occurs.

The rating reflects Chelsea Petroleum's historical operating cash
flow volatility and exposure to refined products wholesale margins,
its limited scale and asset diversity relative to other midstream
energy peers, and high consolidated financial leverage.

"These factors are partly offset by Chelsea's established
distribution network of terminal assets that supply a diversified
customer base primarily in the Northeast U.S. that help ensure a
baseline of cash flow under varied market conditions," said
Standard & Poor's credit analyst Michael Grande.

Chelsea Petroleum was formed by ArcLight Capital Partners LLC to
own and operate Gulf Oil Limited Partnership, a privately-held
refined product storage and wholesale distribution business with
about 5.9 million barrels of storage capacity in 31 states and
Puerto Rico and 3.3 billion gallons of refined products marketed
annually.

The stable outlook reflects S&P's expectation that the company will
have consolidated debt to EBITDA of about 5.9x, FFO to debt of
about 12%, and EBITDA to interest of about 3.7x for the next 12
months, will grow volumes in its unbranded business segment, and
achieve product margins in line with historical averages.

S&P could lower the rating if Chelsea fails to execute on its
unbranded growth strategy due to lower volume growth or
weaker-than-expected profit margins narrow due to backwardation or
larger-than-expected hedging losses, resulting in total debt to
EBITDA above 6x, FFO to debt below 12%, or EBITDA to interest below
2x on a sustained basis.

A rating upgrade is currently unlikely, but could occur if Chelsea
increases its scale while also substantially reducing its cash flow
volatility and managing gross margins and commodity risk, resulting
in consolidated FFO to debt of at least 20%, total debt to EBITDA
of lower than 4x, and EBITDA to interest of above 4.5x on a
sustained basis.

Judge Marcy S. Friedman of the Supreme Court of New York County
narrowed the claims in the lawsuit, AP SERVICES, LLP, in its
capacity as Trustee of the CRC Litigation Trust, Plaintiff, v. J.
JAY LOBELL, LINDSAY A. ROSENWALD, I. KEITH MAHER, ISAAC KIER,
MICHAEL WEISER and ARIE BELLDEGRUN, Defendants.

AP Services, LLP, as trustee for the CRC Litigation Trust (CRC),
brought the lawsuit on behalf of Chem Rx Corporation against the
former directors of Paramount Acquisition Corp., a blank-check or
special purpose acquisition company that was the Company's
predecessor. CRC claims that the directors breached their fiduciary
duties to Paramount by causing Paramount to enter into a leveraged
buy-out transaction in which Paramount acquired an existing private
company doing business as "Chem Rx" for $133 million in cash.
According to CRC, in approving the transaction, the directors were
self-interested or controlled by an interested director. CRC also
alleges that in their rush to approve the LBO Transaction, the
directors ignored key red flags that should have alerted them to
the fact that Chem Rx's audited financial statements were
untrustworthy. CRC further claims that the LBO Transaction saddled
the Company with massive debt that it was unable to service or
repay, and resulted in bankruptcy and liquidation.

Defendants Lindsay A. Rosenwald and J. Jay Lobell sought dismissal
of the First Amended Complaint, pursuant to CPLR 3211 (a) (1) and
(7).  Defendants l. Keith Maher, Isaac Kier, Michael Weiser and
Arie Belldegrun also sought similar relief

CRC was created and approved by the bankruptcy court as a
litigation trust for the purpose of prosecuting causes of action on
behalf of the bankruptcy estate, and the proceeds of any successful
claims are the only source of recovery for the general unsecured
creditors of the Company.

Pursuant to the Court's order, the defendants' motions to dismiss
the First Amended Complaint are granted to the extent of dismissing
the second, third and fourth causes of action. The Court directed
the defendants to serve and file an answer to the First Amended
Complaint within 20 days of service of a copy of the order with
notice of entry.

CROSBY NATIONAL: Seeks Mediation to Resolve Disputes with Creditors
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Crosby National Golf Club, LLC, asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the Northern District of Texas, Fort Worth Division, to compel
parties-in-interest in its Chapter 11 case to mediate in order to
achieve a complete resolution of their disputes.

Hudson M. Jobe, Esq., at Quilling, Selander, Lownds, Winslett &
Moser, P.C., in Dallas, Texas, tells the Court that a victory or
defeat in the HOA Litigation will not likely address the host of
issues between the Debtor and its other constituents.  A mediation
with just the Crosby HOA would likewise be ineffective, Mr. Jobe
sayd.  He adds that a complete resolution of the global issues that
include, but are not limited to, the HOA Litigation would require
the involvement of the Debtor, members of the Golf Club that live
outside both HOA's, Golf Club members that are part of either the
Crosby or Avaron HOA, members of the Crosby or Avaron HOA that are
not members of the Golf Club, and resigned members.  Mr Jobe
further says that the Debtor has attempted to reach an out of court
resolution with the Crosby HOA but this attempt was unsuccessful
and the Debtor believes no true final resolution can be obtained
without the inclusion of all of the Interested Parties.

bankruptcy case (Bankr. N.D. Tex. Case No. 15-41545) in Ft.
Worth,
 Texas, on April 16, 2015, without stating a reason. The
Debtor
 estimated $10 million to $50 million in assets and debt.
The case 
is assigned to Judge Russell F. Nelms.



The Debtor owns and operates the Crosby National Golf Club which is

DAE AVIATION: S&P Lowers CCR to 'B-' , Off Watch Negative
---------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it has lowered its
corporate credit rating on DAE Aviation Holdings Inc. to 'B-' from
'B' and removed the rating from CreditWatch, where it was placed
with negative implications on May 27, 2015.  The outlook is
stable.

S&P's issue-level and recovery ratings on the debt the company used
to finance the transaction, which consists of a $925 million
secured term loan and $485 million of unsecured notes, are not
affected as they were based on the lower rating and were not placed
on CreditWatch.

"Our downgrade of DAE Aviation Holdings Inc. (DAEAHI) reflects the
significant increase in the company's leverage following its
acquisition by funds affiliated with private equity firm Veritas
Capital," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Christopher
Denicolo.  Veritas paid approximately $2.1 billion for the company
and financed the transaction with a $925 million term loan, $485
million of unsecured notes, $20 million of borrowings from a new
$150 million asset-based lending (ABL) revolver, and $845 million
of sponsor equity.  The higher debt levels will cause DAEAHI's pro
forma debt-to-EBITDA metric to increase to 7.5x-8.0x from 4.7x for
the 12 months ended March 31, 2015.  S&P expects the company's
leverage to remain high, with a debt-to-EBITDA metric of around 7x
in 2016, despite its growing earnings and its use of excess cash
flows for debt reduction.

The stable outlook reflects S&P's expectation that DAEAHI's credit
ratios will gradually improve over the next 12-24 months, from
their depressed levels following the LBO, as its earnings improve
and management uses excess cash flows to pay down debt.  However,
the company's leverage will likely remain high, with a
debt-to-EBITDA metric of 6.5x-7.0x in 2016.

It is unlikely that S&P will lower its rating on the company in the
next year unless its liquidity deteriorates materially due to
operating or other issues, or if its leverage increases from
current levels due to dividends or debt-financed acquisitions and
S&P believes that the company no longer has a sustainable capital
structure.

S&P could raise the rating over the next year if DAEAHI's leverage
declines faster than it expected because its earnings increased
faster than S&P had forecast (with a debt-to-EBITDA metric below
6x) and S&P believes that management and the company's equity
sponsor will maintain its leverage below 6x regardless of any
future dividends or acquisitions.



DATAPIPE INC: Moody's Affirms 'B3' Corporate Family Rating
----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service affirmed Datapipe, Inc.'s B3 corporate
family rating (CFR) and B3-PD Probability of Default Rating (PDR)
along with the Caa2 rating on its 2nd lien term loan, following the
company's announcement that it will raise $60 million in preferred
equity and receive about $25 million of proceeds from a sale
lease-back transaction. The use of proceeds will be to repay the
outstanding revolver balance, to pay related fees and expenses and
the remaining amount, about $50 million, will be added as cash to
the balance sheet. Consequently, Moody's has upgraded the senior
secured 1st lien credit facilities to B1 from B2 reflecting the
improvement in expected loss on the 1st lien debt following the
injection of equity capital. The outlook has been changed to stable
to reflect a more balanced financial policy and an improved
liquidity position following the equity infusion.

Outlook Actions:

Outlook, Changed To Stable From Negative

RATINGS RATIONALE

Datapipe's B3 CFR reflects its small scale, high leverage and
persistent negative free cash flow as a result of the company's
high capital intensity and growth profile. These limiting factors
are offset by Datapipe's stable base of contracted recurring
revenues and established position within the high-growth, niche
market segment of complex, auditable managed services and cloud
offerings. Datapipe's market position, technical expertise,
reputation and its ability to successfully integrate and realize
synergies from recent strategic acquisitions are key factors in
Moody's affirmation of the B3 rating and the stable outlook.
Moody's expects leverage to fall meaningfully over the next two
years due to strong EBITDA growth and acknowledges that the growing
pains of margin pressure and challenged liquidity are, at least
partially, driven by discretionary investments. Moody's believes
the company may be in a position to generate free cash flow by
early 2016 if capital intensity lessens.

Moody's expects Datapipe to have good liquidity over the next
twelve months supported by the estimated $50 million of cash that
will be added to the balance sheet from the equity raise and sale
lease-back proceeds. At the end of Q1 2015, Datapipe had $5 million
of cash on the balance sheet and about $19 million outstanding on
its $51.6 million revolver. Moody's expects free cash flow to
remain negative for 2015 driven by high capital intensity. Datapipe
could generate free cash flow in early 2016 if capital intensity
lessens and synergies from recent acquisitions are fully realized.
There are no debt maturities over the next year except for the
mandatory annual 1% amortization of the 1st lien term loan each
year.

The stable outlook reflects Moody's view that Datapipe will
continue to produce strong revenue and EBITDA growth, synergies
from recent acquisitions will be fully realized, and leverage will
meaningfully improve over the next two years.

Moody's could consider a rating upgrade if leverage were to trend
near 5x (Moody's adjusted) and if the company generates positive
free cash flow on a sustainable basis. Sustained evidence of a more
conservative financial policy would also support a rating upgrade.

Downward rating pressure could develop if liquidity becomes
strained or Moody's adjusted leverage stays above 7x for an
extended period of time.

Headquartered in Jersey City, NJ, Datapipe is a provider of data
center, managed hosting and cloud services. The company currently
operates 21 data centers in the US and internationally.



DISTRICT OF MCALLEN: Placed Under Ch.11 Bankruptcy Protection
-------------------------------------------------------------
U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Richard S. Schmidt entered an order for
relief, officially placing The District of McAllen LP under Chapter
11 creditor protection.  The Court finds that the Alleged Debtor
has fewer than 12 creditors and City Bank, a qualified creditor,
may act as the sole petitioning creditor.

Judge Schmidt says City Bank holds a claim for approximately
$5,267,691.25 as of July 12, 2014, secured by the Alleged Debtor's
real property. City Bank's expert testified the property was worth
$3,690,000. Carlos Holt, a limited partner of Alleged Debtor
testified the property was worth $6 million. The Court finds that
the value is at least $15,325 more than City Bank's debt and
therefore City Bank qualifies for inclusion in the count and as a
petitioning creditor.

A copy of the Court's July 7, 2015 Memorandum Opinion and Order is
available at http://is.gd/sMoSc9from Leagle.com.

On Dec. 2, 2014, Dr. Ernesto Ramirez filed an involuntary Chapter
11 bankruptcy petition against McAllen, Texas-based The District at
McAllen LP (Bankr. S.D. Tex. Case No: 14-70661).  Dr. Ramirez's
counsel is Nathaniel Peter Holzer, Esq., at Jordan Hyden Womble
Culbreth & Holzer PC.

The Alleged Debtor argued that Dr. Ramirez was not qualified to act
as a petitioning creditor.  The Bankruptcy Court said this argument
is moot because City Bank joined the involuntary petition before it
was dismissed or relief entered.

The bankruptcy was filed on the eve of foreclosure and the Alleged
Debtor was both insolvent and not paying its debts as they came
due.


DOT VN: Files Certificate of Designation for 2015 Preferred Stock
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Dot VN, Inc., filed a certificate of designation with the Secretary
of State of the State of Delaware to establish the 2015 Series B
Convertible Preferred Stock.

Each share of Series B Preferred Stock converts, at the option of
the holder, into 20 shares of the Company's Common Stock.  The
Company currently issues Common Stock to employees quarterly, for a
portion of their earned wage, at the greater of five cents ($0.05)
or the market closing price on the day of issue per share.  The
Company uses the Five Cent Floor for employee share transactions
and to be consistent has priced the Series B Preferred Stock at one
dollar ($1.00) per share based on the 20 to 1 conversion rate
($0.05 x 20).

Upon designation of the Series B Preferred Stock, the Company
issued, effective March 31, 2015, an aggregate of 4,113,048 shares
of the 2015 Series B Convertible Preferred Stock at $1.00 per share
to Mr. Thomas Johnson (2,502,406 shares for $2,502,406), the
Company's chief executive officer and Chairman of the Board of
Directors and Dr. Lee Johnson (1,610,642 shares for $1,610,642),
the Company's president, chief technology officer, chief financial
officer, secretary and a director.  The March 31, 2015, effective
date for issuance of the Series B Preferred Stock eliminated
$89,028 of interest expense which would have accrued from April 1,
2015, to June 30, 2015, the filing of the Series B Preferred Stock
Certificate of Designation.

The Series B Preferred Stock were issued in satisfaction of i)
unpaid accrued salary, including interest, from December, 2009
through March, 2015, by each of Mr. Thomas Johnson ($1,069,023) and
Dr. Lee Johnson ($867,503) under their respective employment
agreements, as amended, with the Company; ii) two ten percent
convertible notes issued March 12, 2010, with a three year term
due, as amended, April 30, 2015, held by Mr. Thomas Johnson
($496,071) and Dr. Lee Johnson ($496,071) with a $0.153 conversion
price; and iii) two eight percent convertible notes issued
Nov. 17, 2009, with a seven and a half month term due, as amended,
April 30, 2015, held by Mr. Thomas Johnson ($937,312) and Dr. Lee
Johnson ($247,068) with a $0.014 conversion price.

Upon accepting the Series B Preferred Stock both Mr. Thomas Johnson
and Dr. Lee Johnson, as additional consideration for the Series B
Preferred Stock, also agreed to forfeit their right to receive a
large number of Common Stock shares based on the terms of two
convertible notes they each held.  Mr. Thomas Johnson's $496,071
ten percent convertible note could have been converted into
3,242,295 Common Stock shares and his $937,312 eight percent
convertible note could have been converted into 66,950,858 Common
Stock shares for an aggregate of 70,193,153 Common Stock shares
whereas the 1,433,383 shares of Series B Preferred Stock received
in satisfaction of these two convertible notes, totaling
$1,433,383, converts into only 28,667,660 Common Stock shares,
accordingly Mr. Thomas Johnson forfeited the right to receive
41,525,493 shares of the Company's Common Stock.  Dr. Lee Johnson's
$496,071 ten percent convertible note could have been converted
into 3,242,295 Common Stock shares and his $247,068 eight percent
convertible note could have been converted into 17,647,715 Common
Stock shares for an aggregate of 20,890,010 Common Stock shares
whereas the 743,139 shares of Series B Preferred Stock received in
satisfaction of these two convertible notes, totaling $743,139,
converts into only 14,862,780 shares of the Company's Common Stock,
accordingly Mr. Lee Johnson forfeited the right to receive
6,027,230 shares of the Company's Common Stock.

Together Mr. Thomas Johnson and Dr. Lee Johnson forfeited the right
to receive an aggregate of 47,552,723 shares of the Company's
Common Stock to assist the Company improve its Balance Sheet by the
removal of short term debt without adding to shareholder dilution.

EDGEN GROUP: Moody's Cuts Corporate Family Rating to 'B1'
---------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded Edgen Group Inc.'s corporate
family rating to B1 from Ba3 and its probability of default rating
to B1-PD from Ba3-PD. At the same time, Edgen Murray Corporation's
senior secured notes rating was downgraded to B1 from Ba3. The
ratings downgrades reflect the recent downgrades of Sumitomo
Corporation (A3 stable) and Sumitomo Corporation of Americas (A3
stable) as well as the recent substantial deterioration in Edgen's
operating results and credit metrics, which are expected to remain
weak over the next 12 to 18 months. Edgen's Speculative Grade
Liquidity Rating of SGL-3 was affirmed. The ratings outlook is
stable.

The following actions were taken:

Corporate Family Rating, Downgraded to B1;

Probability of Default Rating, Downgraded to B1-PD;

$351 Million Senior Secured Notes due 2020, Downgraded to B1 (LGD
3)

Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating, Affirmed at SGL-3

Outlook Actions:

Outlook, Assigned at Stable

RATINGS RATIONALE

Edgen Group's ratings reflect the implicit support by Sumitomo
Corporation of Americas (SCOA) since Edgen is a majority owned
subsidiary of Sumitomo Corporation of Americas and an indirect
wholly owned subsidiary of Sumitomo Corporation. This provides an
uplift to Edgen's ratings given Sumitomo's strong credit profile
and its financial and liquidity support. However, Edgen's ratings
remain well below Sumitomo's since they also incorporate its
stand-alone risk profile indicated by its elevated leverage, weak
recent operating results, exposure to highly competitive and
cyclical end markets and the fact that SCOA does not provide a
guarantee on its senior secured notes.

The downgrade of Edgen Group's corporate family rating reflects the
recent downgrades of Sumitomo Corporation and Sumitomo Corporation
of Americas, whose senior unsecured ratings were downgraded to A3
from A2. The Sumitomo Corporation downgrade was driven by
increasing concerns over its investment decision-making process,
its elevated financial leverage and heightened earnings volatility.
The Edgen downgrade also reflects the recent significant
deterioration in its operating results and credit metrics and the
expectation this will persist in the near term. Edgen has
experienced a material decline in revenues and adjusted EBITDA
during the past two years driven by lower exploration and
production activity and increased competitive pricing pressure. As
a result, its adjusted EBITDA declined to about $55 million in the
fiscal year ended March 2015 from the recent peak of $143 million
in the year ended December 2012.

The weak trends in Edgen's business is expected to persist in the
near term. Moody's expects oil and natural gas prices to improve
only modestly over the next 12 to 18 months, which will limit the
demand for Edgen's products since it is highly exposed to the
upstream energy sector. This will be tempered by cost reduction
initiatives and a favorable comparison with last fiscal year when
Edgen incurred about $22 million in lower of cost or market
inventory adjustments. Therefore, Moody's expects Edgen's adjusted
EBITDA to remain relatively flat in the range of about $50 million
to $60 million. This will keep Edgen's business profile weak and
its financial leverage elevated for its rating, with its adjusted
leverage ratio (Debt/EBITDA) at about 9.0x.

Edgen's speculative grade liquidity rating of SGL-3, indicates an
adequate liquidity profile. The company had a modest cash balance
of only $24 million as of March 31, 2015, but also had access to
about $42 million of borrowing availability on $230 million of
domestic and foreign revolving credit facilities provided by
Sumitomo Corporation of Americas and its affiliates. Edgen also had
about $87 million available on its $100 million letters of credit
facility. The company is expected to generate substantial free cash
flow over the next 12 to 18 months as demand ebbs and working
capital is reduced, which should temporarily improve its liquidity
position.

Edgen's stable outlook reflects Moody's expectation that the
company's operating results will remain flat or deteriorate only
modestly over the next 12 to 18 months. It also considers the
resilience of the distribution business model, which in a downturn
should benefit from cash generated through reduced working
capital.

An upgrade of Edgen Group is not likely in the near term, but could
occur if operating results improve substantially or Sumitomo
provides additional funds to reduce debt, which leads to improved
cash flow and credit metrics. This would include the company's
debt-to-EBITDA ratio declining below 4.5x.

A downgrade could be triggered if free cash flow remains negative,
debt-to-EBITDA is sustained above 6.0x or there are signs of
weakened support from Sumitomo Corporation.

Edgen Group Inc. is a global distributor of specialized steel
products and services to the energy and industrial infrastructure
markets through its Edgen Murray Corporation and Bourland &
Leverich subsidiaries. Edgen Murray is a global distributor of high
performance pipe, plate, valves and related components to the
upstream, midstream and downstream oil and gas sector, power, civil
construction and mining industries. Bourland & Leverich is a
provider of oil country tubular goods (OCTG) to the upstream
conventional and unconventional onshore drilling market in the
United States. Edgen Group Inc. is headquartered in Baton Rouge,
Louisiana and generated revenues of approximately $1.8 billion for
the twelve month period ended March 31, 2015. Edgen Group Inc. is a
majority owned subsidiary of Sumitomo Corporation of Americas (A3
stable) and an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of Sumitomo
Corporation (A3 stable).



ELDORADO RESORTS: Moody's Assigns 'B2' Corporate Family Rating
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has assigned Eldorado Resorts, Inc. (ERI)
a B2 Corporate Family Rating, B2-PD Probability of Default Rating
and a Speculative Grade Liquidity rating of SGL-2. At the same
time, Moody's assigned ERI's proposed bank facility a Ba3 rating
and its proposed unsecured notes a Caa1 rating. The rating outlook
is stable. All ratings are subject to review of final
documentation.

ERI is proposing to raise a $575 million senior secured bank
facility, consisting of a $150 million 5-year revolver and a $425
million 7-year term loan, and $375 million in 8-year unsecured
notes. The proceeds from the proposed debt issuance will be used to
refinance the existing debt of two of ERI's subsidiaries: Eldorado
Resorts, LLC's (B2 negative) $180 million senior secured 8.625%
notes due 2019 and MTR Gaming Group, Inc.'s (B3 negative) $561
million senior secured 11.5% second lien notes due 2019. The
proceeds -- along with a planned $60 million equity issuance --
will also be used to acquire the 50% portion of the Silver Legacy
in Reno, NV that ERI does not currently own and the Circus Circus
in Reno owned by MGM Resorts International (B2 stable).

Moody's views this transaction positively as it will significantly
reduce ERI's interest expense from about $77 million currently to
under $50 million annually. It also extends ERI's debt maturity
schedule such that its nearest debt maturity will be in 2020. The
closing of the acquisition is expected by the end of 2015.
Following the close of the proposed transaction, all of the debt
will be located at ERI. The ratings of Eldorado Resorts, LLC and
MTR Gaming Group, Inc. will be withdrawn once the refinancing is
closed.

Ratings Rationale

The B2 Corporate Family Rating reflects ERI's strong interest
coverage -- pro forma EBIT/interest expenses of about 1.7 times --
its improved geographic diversification following the acquisition
and the deleveraging effect of both the acquisition and the equity
offering. The B2 also reflects ERI's high leverage and Moody's
expectation that ERI will use its excess free cash flow to repay
debt going forward such that debt to EBITDA will fall below 5.5
times. We estimate that ERI's debt to EBITDA pro forma for the
acquisition but excluding the equity issuance to be about 5.9 times
for the twelve months ended March 31, 2015. The $60 million equity
issuance would reduce pro forma debt to EBITDA to 5.5 times for the
same period. The rating also incorporates the weak operating
results expected at ERI's West Virginia casino following the
implementation of a smoking ban on July 1, 2015 (this property
accounts for about 17% of pro forma earnings).

ERI's stable rating outlook assumes that the refinancing and
acquisition close as proposed and operating results at its
properties in LA, PA, OH and Reno stabilize. The stable rating
outlook also reflects the company's strong interest coverage and
good liquidity which provides cushion as the Eldorado management
team undertakes its strategy of integrating the Silver Legacy and
Circus Circus properties and making improvements at the legacy MTR
properties.

ERI's ratings could be downgraded or outlook revised to negative if
the refinancing, acquisition or equity issuance does not close as
proposed. Ratings could also be downgraded if there is
deterioration in monthly gaming revenue trends in PA, NV, OH or LA
or if gaming revenue declines in WV outpace our expectations of a
20% decline. Quantitatively, ratings could be downgraded should it
become likely that debt/EBITDA would remain above 5.5 times or if
interest coverage remains below 1.5 times. A ratings upgrade would
require sustained debt/EBITDA under 4.25 times and EBIT/interest
maintained above 2.5 times assuming a stable supply and operating
environment.

The Ba3 rating for the senior secured bank facility -- two notches
above the Corporate Family Rating -- reflects a 50% family recovery
rate and a material amount of debt below it in the capital
structure represented by the $375 million of unsecured notes. The
Caa1 rating on the unsecured notes reflects the $575 million ranked
ahead of it in the capital structure.

ERI has good liquidity. The SGL-2 reflects that ERI is expected to
cover all cash needs with internal cash flow over the next 12
months. The company is expected to have a $150 million revolver in
place that does not expire until 2020. If the equity offering is
not completed, the company will use about $56 million of the
revolver to close the acquisition of the Silver Legacy and Circus
Circus properties. ERI's credit agreement is expected to have total
leverage and interest overage financial maintenance covenants. We
expect the company will maintain adequate cushion over these
financial covenants over the next 12 months.

Ratings assigned:

Corporate Family Rating at B2

Probability of Default Rating at B2-PD

Speculative Grade Liquidity rating at SGL-2

$150 million 5-year senior secured revolver at Ba3 (LGD2)

$425 million 7-year senior secured term loan at Ba3 (LGD2)

$375 million 8-year unsecured notes at Caa1 (LGD5)

Rating not changed (and will be withdrawn upon the successful
closing of the refinancing):

Eldorado Resorts, LLC:

Corporate Family Rating at B2

Probability of Default Rating at B1-PD

$180 million senior secured notes due 2019 at B2 (LGD4)

MTR Gaming Group, Inc:

Corporate Family Rating at B3

Probability of Default Rating at B3-PD

$565 million (outstanding balance of $561 million) senior secured
second lien notes due 2019 at B3 (LGD4)

Through its subsidiaries, ERI owns and operates casinos in Nevada,
Louisiana, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and West Virginia. ERI subsidiaries
are MTR Gaming -- which owns Scioto Downs in OH, Mountaineer Casino
in WV, and Presque Isle in PA -- and Eldorado Resorts, LLC -- which
owns Eldorado Reno in NV and Eldorado Shreveport in LA. Eldorado
Resorts LLC is also a 50% JV partner in Silver Legacy in Reno with
MGM. As part of this transaction, ERI is purchasing the 50%
interest in the Silver Legacy it didn't own and the attached Circus
Circus casino hotel from MGM. Pro forma net revenue is expected to
be about $900 million annually.


ELDORADO RESORTS: S&P Affirms 'B' CCR & Revises Outlook to Stable
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it affirmed its 'B'
corporate credit rating on Reno, Nev.-based Eldorado Resorts Inc.
(ERI) and revised the rating outlook to stable from negative.

S&P also assigned its 'BB-' issue-level rating and '1' recovery
rating to ERI's proposed $575 million senior secured credit
facility, consisting of a $150 million revolver and a $425 million
term loan B.  The '1' recovery rating reflects S&P's expectation
for very high (90% to 100%) recovery for lenders in the event of a
payment default.  Additionally, S&P assigned its 'B-' issue-level
rating and '5' recovery rating to ERI's proposed $375 million
senior notes.  The '5' recovery rating reflects S&P's expectation
for modest (10% to 30%; lower half of the range) recovery for
lenders in the event of a payment default.

The company plans to use proceeds from the term loan and notes,
together with cash on hand and an expected $60 million future
equity raise by ERI, to fully refinance $168 million in 8.625%
senior secured notes issued by ERI's subsidiary Eldorado Resorts
LLC (Resorts); fully refinance $561 million in 11.5% second-lien
notes issued by ERI's subsidiary MTR Gaming Group Inc. (MTR); fund
the purchase of the remaining 50% stake in the Silver Legacy Resort
Casino that ERI does not currently own; fund the purchase of the
Circus Circus Hotel & Casino in Reno; refinance existing debt at
Silver Legacy; pay call premiums on the Resorts and MTR notes; and
for transaction fees and expenses.

S&P plans to withdraw its ratings on Resorts and MTR once the
proposed financing transaction closes and the notes currently
outstanding at these entities have been fully repaid.

"The outlook revision to stable from negative reflects our forecast
for credit measures, pro forma for the proposed financing
transactions and the acquisitions of the Silver Legacy and Circus
Circus properties, to improve through 2016, and particularly for
adjusted debt to EBITDA to be around 6x in 2015, pro forma to
include a full year of EBITDA from the acquired properties,
improving to the mid- to high-5x area in 2016," said Standard &
Poor's credit analyst Ariel Silverberg.

The 'B' corporate credit rating on ERI reflects S&P's assessment of
the company's business risk profile as "weak" and its financial
risk profile as "highly leveraged."

The stable rating outlook reflects S&P's expectation for credit
measures to improve through 2016, given the expected interest
savings from the proposed refinancing transaction, and the
increased discretionary cash flow generation as a result of the
financing transactions and the proposed acquisitions.  S&P believes
ERI could use this cash flow for debt repayment.  Under S&P's
forecast, adjusted leverage (pro forma for the completion of the
financing transaction and including the full year benefit of the
acquisitions) will be around 6x in 2015, improving to the mid- to
high-5x area by 2016, and EBITDA coverage of interest will be in
the mid-2x area, on average, through 2016.

S&P could consider lowering the ratings if EBITDA generation is
meaningfully weaker than it is currently forecasting and interest
coverage is sustained below the mid-1x area, or if the company's
liquidity position is impaired.  This would likely result if the
impact of additional competition in the eastern Ohio region or the
smoking ban at Mountaineer is greater than S&P is currently
forecasting for 2015, or if the company is not successful in
achieving the level of cost synergies we have assumed.

Higher ratings are unlikely at this time given S&P's forecast for
EBITDA to decline through 2015.  Nevertheless, S&P would consider
raising the ratings if adjusted debt to EBITDA were to be sustained
below 5x.  This would likely be the result of greater-than-expected
debt reduction.

ENERGY FUTURE: Mediation Scrapped in Avenue Capital v. Fidelity
---------------------------------------------------------------
The dispute between Avenue Capital Management II, LP, et al., on
one side, and Fidelity Investments, et al., on the other, involving
a contract to sell Energy Future Holdings notes will not proceed to
mediation.

"It is recommended that, pursuant to paragraph 2(a) Procedures to
Govern Mediation of Appeals from the United States Bankruptcy Court
for this District and 28 U.S.C. Sec. 636(b), this matter be
withdrawn from the mandatory referral for mediation and proceed
through the appellate process of this Court," said Delaware
Magistrate Judge Mary Pat Thynge in her Recommendation dated June
22.

"Through this Recommendation, the parties were advised of their
right to file objections to this Recommendation pursuant to 28
U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(B), Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(a) and D. Del. LR 72.1.
Any objections to this Recommendation shall be filed within
fourteen (14) days, limited to five (5) pages, after being served
with the same. Any response must be filed within fourteen (14) days
after service of objections and is limited to five (5) pages. The
parties are further directed to the Court's Standing Order in
Non-Pro Se matters for Objections Filed under Fed. R. Civ. P. 72
dated October 9, 2013, a copy of which is available on the court's
website, www.ded.uscourts.gov

"Local counsel are obligated to inform out-of-state counsel of this
Order," the Magistrate Judge said.

In January 2015, Delaware Bankruptcy Judge Christopher S. Sontchi
rejected claims by several investment managers -- including Avenue
Capital; GSO Capital Partners LP; P. Schoenfeld Asset Management
LP; Third Avenue Management LLC; and York Capital Management Global
Advisors LLC -- that Fidelity Investment was bound by contract to
sell the EFH notes.  At the behest of Fidelity, Judge Sontchi
dismissed the adversary proceeding filed by Avenue Capital et al.,
alleging that Fidelity gave them call rights to purchase the notes
in connection with the restructuring support agreement EFH entered
into as part of its Chapter 11 filing.  Avenue Capital said those
rights must be honored even though EFH later rejected the RSA.

Avenue Capital et al. said they exercised their rights to buy $423
million in EFH non-guaranteed notes that Fidelity held at 37.15
percent of par before the RSA was terminated.  But Fidelity would
not honor the calls, and argued in its court papers that the call
rights were but one component of a larger structure that needed to
be approved by the bankruptcy court in order for the financial
services firm to be bound to them, according to a report by Matt
Chiappardi at Law360.  Fidelity argued that the firms were plucking
one sentence out of a term sheet attached to the RSA and ignoring
dozens of other pages that set conditions on the call right, and
that their reading of the agreement would make it economically
irrational under the law.  Fidelity also contended that while the
RSA was indeed binding, it only bound Fidelity to vote for the
Chapter 11 plan contemplated by the agreement and not to interfere
with the relevant restructuring transactions. Fidelity argued that
the RSA didn't right away bind it to the call right, but was only
immediately enforceable once the court approved other related
conditions.  Judge Sontchi agreed.

According to Judge Thynge, pursuant to paragraph 2(a) of the
Procedures to Govern Mediation of Appeals from the United States
Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware dated September 11,
2012, the court conducted an initial review, which included
information from counsel, to determine the appropriateness of
mediation in this matter.  As a result of the screening process,
she said, the "issues involved in this case are not amenable to
mediation and mediation at this stage would not be a productive
exercise, a worthwhile use of judicial resources nor warrant the
expense of the process."

The parties disagree regarding the standard applied by the
Bankruptcy Court in granting Fidelity's motion to dismiss, and
whether mediation in this matter should proceed.  

Avenue et al. claim that the Bankruptcy Court incorrectly applied
the appropriate legal standard, arguing the dismissal of the
complaint was only warranted if Fidelity's interpretation of the
contract was the only reasonable construction as a matter of law,
and warranted reversal on this appeal. They point out that
mediation may help reach a resolution, noting that the parties have
not previously engaged in any ADR. They have, however, engaged in
discussions related to the broader Chapter 11 proceedings, in which
both are major creditors.  Avenue et al. note that they expressed a
willingness to resolve the Adversary Proceeding involved in this
appeal in the context of the broader resolution of the issues in
the Debtors' Chapter 11 cases and look to mediation in the District
Court as an opportunity to resolve both the Adversary Proceedings
and other issues related to the broader Chapter 11 cases.

Fidelity et al. disagree with Avenue et al.'s comments noting that
the Bankruptcy Court rejected Avenue et al.'s approach to read one
provision of the contract in isolation. Fidelity et al. emphasize
that the parties are very familiar with each other and in very
frequent contact directly through principals and through
intermediaries. Since those extensive discussions have not lead to
resolution of this appeal, Fidelity et al. do not believe that
mediation would be beneficial. More importantly, they note that the
open issues remaining in the bankruptcy case are unrelated to the
issues on appeal and involve not only the parties to this Adversary
Proceeding, but a substantial number of parties not involved in
this appeal, which would require a much broader consensus of
stakeholders, and include parties over which this court does not
have direct jurisdiction through this appeal.

The case before the District Court is, Avenue Capital Management
II, LP, et al., Appellants, v. Fidelity Investments, et al.,
Appellees, C. A. NO. 15-210-RGA (D. Del.)

ENERGY FUTURE: Wins Another Round Versus Bondholders
----------------------------------------------------
Peg Brickley, writing for The Wall Street Journal, reported that
Energy Future Holdings Corp. has won round two in a fight with
bondholders demanding some $431 million worth of premiums on
billions of dollars in debt.

According to the Journal, round one was decided in the company's
favor in March, but that ruling left open the possibility that
bondholders could persuade a judge to lift the automatic stay of
bankruptcy and keep their claim to premium pay alive.  On July 8,
Judge Christopher Sontchi of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in
Wilmington, Del., eliminated that possibility.

The decision eases Energy Future's path out of bankruptcy by
reducing the amount it must include for some bondholders as it
negotiates with multiple groups of creditors over a Chapter 11 exit
scheme, the Journal said.

                        About Energy Future

Energy Future Holdings Corp., formerly known as TXU Corp., is a
privately held diversified energy holding company with a portfolio
of competitive and regulated energy businesses in Texas.  Oncor,
an 80 percent-owned entity within the EFH group, is the largest
regulated transmission and distribution utility in Texas.

The Company delivers electricity to roughly three million delivery
points in and around Dallas-Fort Worth.  EFH Corp. was created in
October 2007 in a $45 billion leverage buyout of Texas power
company TXU in a deal led by private-equity companies Kohlberg
Kravis Roberts & Co. and TPG Inc.

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
book value and liabilities of $49.7 billion.  The Debtors have $42
billion of funded indebtedness.

EFH's legal advisor for the Chapter 11 proceedings is Kirkland &
Ellis LLP, its financial advisor is Evercore Partners and its
restructuring advisor is Alvarez & Marsal.  The TCEH first lien
lenders supporting the restructuring agreement are represented by
Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison, LLP as legal advisor,
and Millstein & Co., LLC, as financial advisor.

The EFIH unsecured creditors supporting the restructuring
agreement are represented by Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP,
as legal advisor, and Centerview Partners, as financial advisor.
The EFH equity holders supporting the restructuring agreement are

EXCELITAS TECHNOLOGIES: Moody's Alters Ratings Outlook to Stable
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service changed the rating outlook for Excelitas
Technologies Holding Corp. to stable from negative and affirmed the
company's B3 Corporate Family Rating (CFR) and B3-PD Probability of
Default Rating (PDR). The stabilization of the outlook reflects the
largely completed integration of Qioptiq as well as ongoing
improvement in the company's credit metrics, which is expected to
continue. In addition, it reflects Moody's expectation that the
company will maintain a good liquidity profile.

According to Moody's Analyst Brian Silver, "Qioptiq was a
transformational acquisition and its successful integration will
drive opportunities for earnings and cash flow improvement."

The following ratings have been affirmed:

B3 Corporate Family Rating;

B3-PD Probability of Default Rating;

$40 million 1st lien revolver due 2018 at B2 (LGD3);

$620 million 1st lien term loan B due 2020 at B2 (LGD3); and

$40 million 1st lien delayed draw term loan due 2020 at B2 (LGD3).

The rating outlook has been changed to stable from negative

RATINGS RATIONALE

Excelitas' B3 Corporate Family Rating largely reflects its high
financial leverage and expectations for moderate deleveraging in
the near-term. It also incorporates the risks associated with the
cyclical and potentially volatile end-markets the company serves
and the company's foreign exchange exposure. However, the rating is
supported by Excelitas' enhanced size, scale, geographic
penetration and product offerings post-Qioptiq, as well as its
solid margins and good liquidity profile. In addition, the rating
recognizes the company's strong position in the global custom
designed photonics end-markets, its diverse blue-chip customer base
and reputation for quality in manufacturing complex engineered
products, many of which are used in highly regulated sectors that
have zero tolerance for failure. Risk of end-market cyclicality is
somewhat offset by the company's diversification to different
industries with varying growth drivers. The company's technological
expertise, strengthened by engineer-to-engineer relationships with
customers and often supported by a collaborative production process
creates high barriers to entry for competitors while raising
switching costs for customers due to the mission critical nature of
the company's products.

The B2 ratings on the company's $40 million 1st lien revolver due
2018, $620 million 1st lien term loan B due 2020 and $40 million
1st lien delayed draw term loan due 2020 reflect their first
priority status on all present and future assets of Excelitas and
its domestic subsidiary guarantors and seniority in the capital
structure relative to the 2nd lien term loan. The company's Dutch
cooperative, which contains all non-US subsidiaries of the company,
is also a guarantor and pledges 100% of its own stock and 65% of
the stock of the non-US subsidiaries. The company's credit
facilities also include downstream guarantees from Excelitas
Technologies Holding Corp. The capital structure also includes a
$252 million 2nd lien term loan due 2021 that is not rated by
Moody's, which ranks junior to the 1st lien debt.

The stable outlook reflects Moody's expectation for some
deleveraging and improving revenue and earnings growth over the
next 12 - 18 months, primarily driven by increasing customer
penetration and costs saving initiatives. The outlook also
anticipates the company will generate positive free cash flow
during the next 12 - 18 months, which is expected to be used for
debt repayment.

Although not anticipated in the near-term, the ratings could be
upgraded if the company is able to generate healthy levels of free
cash flow and bring adjusted leverage below 5.5 times (Moody's
adjusted debt/EBITDA). Alternatively, the ratings could be
downgraded if the company's liquidity weakens such that there is
increasing revolver reliance or if the company is unable to
generate positive free cash flow on an annual basis. In addition,
the ratings could be pressured if there is a loss of a material
contract, if leverage increases from currently high levels and is
sustained above 7.0 times, or if interest coverage (EBITA/interest)
falls below 1.0 time.

Excelitas Technologies Corp. is a global provider of custom
designed photonic components, sub-systems, and integrated solutions
to OEMs serving a wide range of applications within various health,
environmental, safety, security, industrial, aerospace and defense
markets. The company operates through two primary business units;
1) Commercial (i.e. lighting, detection and optics), and 2) Defense
and Aerospace (i.e. optical systems and advanced electronics
systems). Veritas Capital purchased Excelitas, the former
Illumination and Detection Solutions business of PerkinElmer, Inc.,
for approximately $500 million in November 2010. In October 2013
Excelitas completed the transformational acquisition of Qioptiq
S.a.r.l. (Qioptiq), a privately held global supplier of optical and
photonic technology solutions such as lenses and optical modules.
In November 2013 the company completed the bolt-on acquisition of
Lumen Dynamic Holdings (Lumen), a privately held manufacturer of
lamp and LED-based UV curing and fluorescence illumination systems.
Excelitas' revenues for the twelve months ending April 5, 2015 were
slightly greater than $720 million.

GALEN INSURANCE: A.M. Best Lowers Fin. Strength Rating to 'B(fair)'
-------------------------------------------------------------------
A.M. Best Co. has downgraded the financial strength rating to B
(Fair) from B+ (Good) and the issuer credit rating to "bb" from
"bbb-" of Galen Insurance Company (Galen) (St. Louis, MO).  The
outlook for the ratings was also revised to negative from stable.

The downgrade reflects a significant drop in risk-adjusted
capitalization and loss of policyholders' surplus from poor
operating results in 2014 and in the first quarter of 2015.  This
was mainly due to unexpected adverse claims development, which also
produced a significant increase in ceded premium on a swing rated
reinsurance treaty.  The combination resulted in a decrease in
risk-adjusted capitalization, as measured by Best's Capital
Adequacy Ratio (BCAR), to a level that no longer supported the
prior rating and, in A.M. Best's opinion, is not supportive of the
company's aggressive growth or the potential for further adverse
development.  Galen's management has stated that they are tempering
their growth plans for the time being, strengthening internal
controls and evaluating potential capital alternatives.

The negative outlook reflects the possibility that the rating could
be lowered further if BCAR continues to drop or if underwriting
losses persist.  However, the ratings may be stabilized or positive
rating actions may occur with strengthening of the balance sheet
and a prolonged period of stable, profitable operating performance.
Furthermore, continued strong growth would first have to be
supported by additional capital.


GAS-MART USA: Custodian Wants Chapter 11 Cases Dismissed
--------------------------------------------------------
John Sopinski, duly appointed custodian by order of the Johnson
County District, asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Western
District of Missouri, Kansas City Division, to dismiss the Chapter
11 cases of Gas-Mart USA, Inc., and its debtor affiliates, as the
bankruptcy filing was not authorized.

According to Mr. Sopinski, the Debtors moved for the appointment of
a receiver in Johnson County District Court and the application was
denied.  The parties -- the Debtors and their shareholders --
eventually agreed on the appointment of a custodian.  Since the
appointment of the Custodian, one group of shareholders and the
Chief Executive Officer have attempted to frustrate the efforts of
the Custodian, Mr. Sopinski told the Bankruptcy Court.

In the alternative to dismissal, the Custodian asks the Bankruptcy
Court to abstain from hearing the matter pursuant to Sec. 305.  In
further alternative, the Custodian seeks an Order from the
Bankruptcy Court relieving him from the turnover requirements of
Sec. 543 of the Bankruptcy Code.  In the further alternative, the
Custodian moves that he be appointed Ch. 11 Trustee.

The Custodian is represented by:

GASFRAC ENERGY: Implements Plan of Compromise Under CCAA
--------------------------------------------------------
GASFRAC Energy Services Inc. on July 8 disclosed that further to
its previous news releases of
March 27, 2015 and April 7, 2015 and the approval of the creditors
of the Corporation by an overwhelming majority at a meeting of
creditors of the Corporation held on June 22, 2015, the Corporation
has implemented a Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act ("CCAA")
plan of compromise and arrangement, pursuant to which Calfrac Well
Services Ltd. has acquired 100% equity ownership of GASFRAC, as an
operating entity pursuant to a Sanction Order of the Alberta Court
of Queen's Bench in Bankruptcy and Insolvency issued on June 24,
2015 and recognized by the United States Bankruptcy Court for the
Western District of Texas, San Antonio Division pursuant to a
Sanction Recognition Order issued on June 25, 2015.  In addition
thereto, all former subsidiaries of the Corporation have or are in
the process of being liquidated and dissolved.

Having now obtained all requisite approvals of the Court, the US
Court, and the unsecured creditors of GASFRAC and all conditions
related to the Order having been complied with, the Corporation has
filed Articles of Reorganization with the Registrar of
Corporations, in the Province of Alberta to: (i) create and issue
new Class A common shares all of which are owned by Calfrac; and
(ii) immediately cancel all previously issued and outstanding
securities of GASFRAC and all related options, warrants and other
rights to acquire previously existing GASFRAC common shares without
payment or other consideration to former GASFRAC common
shareholders or holders of associated rights in connection with the
Plan or otherwise.

It is anticipated that holders of allowed unsecured claims against
GASFRAC, other than holders of 7% convertible unsecured
subordinated debentures will recover 100% of their allowed
unsecured claims and holders of Debentures will recover an
estimated range of between 37% and 55% of the principal amount of
their unsecured claims, in connection with the implementation of
the Plan.  Certain categories of claims will be treated as
unaffected by the Plan.

All former directors of GASFRAC have resigned as of July 6, 2015.

It is further anticipated that GASFRAC will in the near future
cease to be a reporting issuer in various Provinces in Canada.

GASFRAC commenced proceedings and obtained court protection under
the CCAA pursuant to an initial order granted by the Court of
Queen's Bench, in the Province of Alberta, on Jan. 15, 2015, "as a
result of a combination of continuing negative operating results,
limited access at the present time to capital markets for junior
issuers such as the Corporation, reduced industry activity
resulting from depressed petroleum and natural gas commodity prices
and the inability of the Corporation to obtain a suitable offer for
the purchase of the Corporation or its assets after a strategic
alternative process, which commenced on November 13, 2014, that
would satisfy all of the Corporation's existing financial
obligations, both secured and unsecured."

GLOBAL COMPUTER: Seeks to Expand Miles & Stockbridge Work
---------------------------------------------------------
Global Computer Enterprises, Inc., asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court
for authorization to expand the role of Miles & Stockbridge P.C. as
counsel, nunc pro tunc to May 20, 2015.

The Court on Feb. 4, 2015, authorized the Debtor to employ MS as
special counsel to represent the Debtor in claim litigation
effective as of Jan. 5, 2015.  The Debtor said that as it is
winding down, MS will continue to represent it in claims
litigation, and the remaining tasks in the main case would be
minimal.

MS as special counsel has agreed to file and prosecute an objection
to the claim of Qwest Government Services, Inc. d/b/a CenturyLink
QGS, which legal services cannot be performed by the Debtor's
primary bankruptcy counsel, McGuireWoods LLP, due to McGuireWoods'
representation of Century Link in matters unrelated to this case,
and to represent the Debtor with respect to additional potential
conflicts and claims objection litigation, if requested.

The Debtor is seeking to expand MS' role as counsel to include:

   1. advise the Debtor with respect to its duties as debtor in the
continued operation of its business and properties;

   2. advise and consult on issues of the case, including all of
the legal and administrative requirements of operating in Chapter
11; and

   3. perform all other necessary legal services and provide all
other necessary legal advice to the Debtor in connection with the
Chapter 11 case.

MS' hourly rates for the primary attorneys working on the matter
are:

   Kenneth M. Misken, partner        $450
   Kristin Siracusa, associate      $270

To the best of the Debtor's knowledge, MS is a "disinterested
person" as that term is defined in Section 101(14) of the
Bankruptcy Code.

GT ADVANCED: Wants Contempt Sanctions Imposed on Tera Xtal
----------------------------------------------------------
GT Advanced Technologies Inc. and its affiliated debtors ask the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of New Hampshire to impose
contempt sanctions on Tera Xtal Technology Corp. for commencing an
action against GT Advanced Technologies Limited in a Taiwan court,
which action is a violation of the Bankruptcy Court's Order
Enforcing Sections 362 and 525 of the Bankruptcy Code, dated
October 9, 2014.

G. Alexander Bongartz, Esq., at Paul Hastings LLP, in New York,
tells the Court that TXT filed a Civil Application for Recognition
of Effectiveness of Foreign Arbitral Award against GT Hong Kong in
a Taiwan court, seeking recognition of a prepetition arbitration
award as part of an effort to bring criminal and civil litigation
against GT Hong Kong.

According to Mr. Bongartz, TXT has been formally notified that it
is violating the Bankruptcy Court's prior order and the automatic
stay for approximately one month.  He adds that TXT has also made a
"solemn" promise to withdraw the Illegal Complaint.  Mr. Bongartz
says that in the event TXT has not withdrawn the Illegal Complaint,
the Debtors ask the Bankruptcy Court (a) impose contempt sanctions
on TXT, (b) require TXT to immediately withdraw, with prejudice,
the Illegal Complaint in the Taiwan action, and (c) declare the
Taiwan action void ab initio.

Mr. Bongartz asserts that sanctions should include (i) monetary
sanctions, including reimbursement of attorneys' fees incurred or
to be incurred by GTAT in connection with the Taiwan action and
bringing this Motion, and (ii) the disallowance of TXT's proofs of
claim.

Mr. Bongartz asserts that there can be no question that TXT's
violation of the Section 362 Order and the automatic stay is
willful and that TXT is one of the most active litigants in the
Chapter 11 cases, having commenced an adversary proceeding against
GT Hong Kong and having filed numerous proofs of claim, motions,
and objections.

creditors when it filed the petition.

The Debtor estimated $50 million to $100 million in assets and $1

HOME LOAN: S&P Affirms 'B+' ICR, Off CreditWatch Negative
---------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it affirmed its 'B+' issuer
credit rating on Home Loan Servicing Solutions Ltd. and removed the
rating from CreditWatch, where S&P placed it with negative
implications on Feb. 23, 2015.  The outlook on the issuer credit
rating is stable.  Subsequently, S&P is withdrawing the rating, at
the issuer's request.

The withdrawal follows the sale of substantially all of Home Loan
Servicing Solution's assets to New Residential Investment Corp.



ICAHN ENTERPRISES: Moody's Affirms 'Ba3' Corporate Family Rating
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has affirmed the Ba3 rating for Icahn
Enterprises L.P.'s (IEP) corporate family and senior debt ratings
and revised the outlook to stable from positive on both. Moody's
had maintained a positive outlook since January 2014, when IEP
issued an additional $1.5 billion of senior notes and refinanced
high coupon debt, modestly reducing its overall cost of debt.

Over the past year, negative trends in the energy sector have
weighed against IEP's outlook, including declines of investment
values in its energy and rail segments that have contributed to
rising market value leverage, reduced income, and declining asset
value for IEP. Moody's has observed that these cash-flow generating
subsidiaries are in economically cyclical industries, which have
additional economic linkages based on the rising development of
North American energy extraction, much of which is transshipped by
rail. However recent declines have been more secular in nature,
resulting from long-term changes in the global energy market that
have altered supply/demand balances.

Moody's Ba3 rating is based on IEP's relatively high leverage level
and its reliance on a few of its subsidiaries for most of its cash
flow to support debt service. The concentration, credit quality and
cyclicality of IEP's portfolio companies remain a concern for
Moody's. IEP's succession planning also remains an important rating
consideration due to the dominant leadership of Mr. Carl C. Icahn,
Chairman.

RATINGS RATIONALE

Performance trends over the past year blunted the case for a
positive outlook on IEP's debt. The company's market-value based
net leverage ratio, which was 36% at the end of Q1 2015, has
exhibited a negative trend, as the value of the firm's investments
has declined and the company invested significant cash. These
declines have impacted asset value, down approximately 20% since Q2
2014, which weighs against IEP's financial flexibility, reducing
its available borrowing capacity. IEP's interest coverage has also
declined due to payout reductions from CVR Energy, which has been
the company's largest source of distributions among its investment
segments.

The Ba3 rating is based on IEP's relatively high market value
leverage, and on its reliance on a few of its subsidiaries for most
of its cash flow to support debt service. In addition, most of the
dividends the company receives come from two economically-sensitive
segments: energy and railcars. The concentration, credit quality
and cyclicality of IEP's portfolio companies remain a concern for
Moody's.

Moody's rating also incorporates the risks and uncertainties from
activist investing including the potential need to support the
company's subsidiaries. Moody's added that IEP's lack of a clear
succession plan remains an important rating consideration due to
the company's dependence on the 79 year-old Carl Icahn.

Moody's noted that the following developments would put positive
pressure on IEP's ratings: improvement to stabilize IEP's financial
profile including reduction in net debt relative to total invested
assets, additional equity flotation, shift in investment portfolio
towards less concentrated positions of higher credit quality, more
stable cash flow dynamics generated by each of its businesses, and
addressing governance issues relating to succession planning, group
complexity and transparency.

The following developments would put negative pressure on IEP's
ratings: further deterioration of valuations or credit strength of
its operating subsidiaries or investment management segment, a
significant increase in net debt or decline in liquidity of the
holding company or in the investment funds, or a key man issue that
threatens the firm's performance.

Icahn Enterprises L.P. is a publicly traded master limited
partnership that is 88% owned by Carl C. Icahn. The primary
business strategy of Icahn Enterprises is generating returns in its
activist hedge funds and direct equity investing in companies to
unlock value. The company operates multiple business segments
including investment management, automotive, energy, metals, real
estate, home fashion, railcar, gaming and food packaging.



IMPLANT SCIENCES: Stockholders Elect Four Directors

An annual meeting of stockholders of Implant Sciences Corporation
was held on July 1, 2015, at which the stockholders, among other
things:

   (1) elected Dr. William McGann, Robert P. Liscouski,
       Michael C. Turmelle and James M. Simon, Jr. to the Board of

       Directors;

   (2) ratified the selection of Marcum LLP as the Company's
       independent registered public accountants for the
       fiscal year ending June 30, 2015;

   (3) approved an amendment to the Company's Restated Articles of
       Organization to increase the number of authorized shares of

       Common Stock by 50,000,000 shares to 250,000,000 shares;
       and

   (4) approved, on an advisory basis, the holding of future

                      About Implant Sciences

Implant Sciences Corporation (OBB: IMSC.OB) --
http://www.implantsciences.com/-- develops, manufactures and
sells sensors and systems for the security, safety and defense
(SS&D) industries.

As of March 31, 2015, the Company had $8.73 million in total
assets, $83.5 million in total liabilities and a $74.8 million
total stockholders' deficit.

Marcum LLP, in Boston, Massachusetts, issued a "going concern"
qualification on the consolidated financial statements for the
year ended June 30, 2014.  The independent auditors noted that
the Company has had recurring net losses and continues to
experience negative cash flows from operations.  As of Sept. 23,
2014, the Company's principal obligation to its primary lenders
was approximately $53.4 million and accrued interest of
approximately $10.2 million.  The Company is required to repay all
borrowings and accrued interest to these lenders on March 31,
2015.  These conditions raise substantial doubt about its ability
to continue as a going concern.


INTERCOASTAL CONTRACTING: New Hanover County's Claim Rejected
-------------------------------------------------------------
U.S. Bankruptcy Judge David M. Warren tossed Claim # 17 filed by
the New Hanover County Tax Office, at the behest of Intercoastal
Contracting, Inc.

Intercoastal Contracting filed a Chapter 11 bankruptcy petition
(Bankr. E.D.N.C. Case No. 12-06206-8-DMW) on August 29, 2012.  As
of the Petition Date, the Debtor operated as a marine contracting
company for construction projects including the repair and building
of bridges and aquatic bulkheads.
The Debtor did not own any real property as of the Petition Date.
On Schedule B filed with the court on October 1, 2012, the Debtor
listed personal property with a value of $3,195,331.57. The
majority of the Personal Property consisted of equipment used to
operate the Debtor's business, including vehicles, trailers, boats
and heavy construction machinery. The Debtor valued the Equipment
at $3,103,422.39. Other Personal Property included cash, checking
accounts and a membership certificate in a marina.

As of the Petition Date, the Equipment served as collateral for
loans totaling $7,974,087.43, including a blanket lien in favor of
SunTrust Bank against "all of the Debtor's personal property."
SunTrust's lien was perfected through a UCC Financing Statement
filed April 12, 2007 with the North Carolina Secretary of State and
extended October 4, 2011, and had a balance of $1,123,727.46 on the
Petition Date.

On October 4, 2012, the County filed a Proof of Claim, designated
as Claim No. 17, asserting an unsecured priority claim in the
amount of $33,191.15. The Claim, made pursuant to 11 U.S.C. Sec.
507(a)(8), is the result of a pre-petition assessment made by the
County for 2012 taxes upon the Equipment.

The Debtor did not list the Membership Certificate or accounts on
the tax schedules filed with the County, and the County has not
asserted that they are taxable personal property.  The 2012 tax
bill was last due and payable without interest on January 8, 2013,
after the Petition Date.

The Claim is unsecured because the Debtor did not own any real
property onto which the Claim could attach, and the County did not
levy or otherwise obtain a lien on the Equipment prior to the
Petition Date.  In either December, 2012 or January, 2013, the
Debtor paid $19,671.85 toward the Claim.

Following the Petition Date, the Debtor retained substantially all
of the Equipment and used it for the continued operation of the
Debtor's business; however, in July or August of 2014, the Debtor
sold its remaining Equipment to Smith-Rowe, LLC pursuant to an
Agreement of Purchase and Sale dated April 15, 2014 and approved by
the court on July 2, 2014.  The proceeds generated by the sale of
the Equipment, including the sale of one item of equipment in June,
2013, totaled $3,040,000.00, $63,422.39 less than the value the
Debtor had estimated on Schedule B.

From the Petition Date until the sale of the Debtor's remaining
Equipment in July or August of 2014, the Debtor had net operating
losses of $144,260.14.

The Debtor asserts that the Claim should be disallowed under Sec.
502(b)(3) of the Bankruptcy Code because the Claim "exceeds the
value of the interest of the estate in such property."  The Debtor
further asserts that because the Claim should be disallowed, the
$19,671.85 that the Debtor paid toward the Claim should be applied
to the Debtor's post-petition tax liabilities to the County.

The Court agreed and directed the County to reallocate the Debtor's
payment of $19,671.85 to the Debtor's outstanding post-petition tax
liabilities.

JO-ANN STORES: Moody's Hikes Corporate Family Rating to 'B2'
------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service upgraded Jo-Ann Stores Holdings Inc.'s
Corporate Family Rating to B2 from B3, Probability of Default
rating to B2-PD from B3-PD, and senior unsecured notes to Caa1 from
Caa2. Moody's also upgraded the ratings on Jo-Ann Stores, LLC's
secured term loan to Ba3 from B1 and unsecured notes to B3 from
Caa1. The rating outlook is stable.

"The upgrade reflects the reduction in adjusted debt due to changes
in Moody's approach for capitalizing operating leases" said Moody's
Assistant Vice President, Mike Zuccaro. The updated approach for
standard adjustments for operating leases is explained in the
cross-sector rating methodology Financial Statement Adjustments in
the Analysis of Non-Financial Corporations, published on June 15,
2015. Zuccaro added, "The action also reflects that Jo-Ann credit
metrics, though weak, have remained generally stable despite soft
performance over the past couple of years. We expect modest
improvement over time as the company implements initiatives to
improve operating performance."

Ratings upgraded:

Jo-Ann Stores Holdings Inc.

-- Corporate Family Rating to B2 from B3

-- Probability of Default Rating to B2-PD from B3-PD

-- 9.75% unsecured notes due 2019 to Caa1 (LGD6) from Caa2 (LGD6)

Jo-Ann Stores, LLC

-- Sr. Secured Term Loan due 2018 to Ba3 (LGD2) from B1 (LGD2)

-- 8.125% unsecured notes due 2019 to B3 (LGD4) from Caa1 (LGD4)

The ratings outlook is stable

RATINGS RATIONALE

Jo-Ann's B2 CFR reflects its weak overall quantitative credit
profile, with lease-adjusted debt/EBITDAR of 5.7x and adjusted
EBITA/interest expense of 1.2x for the latest twelve month period
ended May 2, 2015. Jo-Ann's credit profile is supported by the
positive characteristics of the craft and hobby category, which has
a loyal customer base, positive demographic trends, and a lower
level of cyclicality relative to other areas of specialty retail,
driving relatively stable performance and credit metrics even in
challenging economic times. Jo-Ann's good liquidity also provides
key ratings support, as Moody's expects operating cash flow to
remain sufficient to cover interest and capital expenditures, and
the company's $375 million ABL provides ample liquidity to fund
seasonal working capital needs.

The stable outlook reflects Moody's expectation for modest
improvement in performance and metrics as the company undertakes
initiatives to drive growth and improve profitability, while
maintaining good liquidity.

Ratings could be upgraded if the company continues to demonstrate
sales growth and improves operating margins while de-leveraging its
balance sheet. Quantitatively, ratings could be upgraded if
lease-adjusted debt/EBITDAR is sustained below 5.0x and adjusted
EBITA/interest exceeds 1.75x.

Ratings could be downgraded if recent positive trends in sales were
to reverse or margins materially decline, causing adjusted debt
leverage to exceed 6.0x or adjusted EBITA/interest to approach 1.0x
on a sustained basis. A material erosion in liquidity or more
aggressive financial policy could also result in a ratings
downgrade.

Through its operating subsidiaries, Jo-Ann Stores Holdings Inc. is
a leading retailer of fabrics and craft supplies offering a wide
range of products for quilting, apparel, craft and home décor
sewing. Jo-Ann operates over 852 stores in 49 states as of May 2,
2015. Annual revenues are in excess of $2.3 billion. The company is
majority owned by affiliates of Leonard Green & Partners L.P.

LAKELAND DEVELOPMENT: Creditor Seeks Conversion of Ch. 11 Case
--------------------------------------------------------------
Goodman Santa Fe Springs SPE LLC asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the Central District of California, Los Angeles Division, to
convert the Chapter 11 case of Lakeland Development Company to a
case under Chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code.

Joel M. Long, Esq., at Sedgwick LLP, in San Francisco, California,
tells the Court that the Debtor's most recent Monthly Operating
Report shows that the Debtor has experienced a cumulative net loss
of nearly $5 million since the bankruptcy was filed.  Mr. Long
further tells the Court that the Debtor's Status Reports, viewed
over time, show a steady and substantial depletion of the amount of
available cash and sale proceeds to distribute to creditors despite
the Debtor's liquidation of most of its assets, including real
estate holdings, vehicles, and securities, and various collection
efforts.  He adds that the Debtor lacks cash resources or the
legitimate prospect of any future operating revenue to pay its
substantial administrative debts.  He also notes that the Debtor
has confirmed in multiple filings with the Court that it ceased
operations as of April 30, 2015.  He says the Debtor has no means
to fund a plan of reorganization through continued business
operations or revenue, thus cause exists for the Chapter 11 case to
be converted to Chapter 7.

LIFE PARTNERS: Creditors Seek Termination of Exclusivity
--------------------------------------------------------
John Gissas, Dean Vagnozzi and Frank Bice ask the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the Northern District of Texas, Fort Worth Division, to
terminate the exclusivity period of Debtors Life Partners, Inc.,
and LPI Financial Services, Inc. so that the movants or any other
party can propose a plan of reorganization.

Sheldon L. Solow, Esq., at Kaye Scholer LLP, in Chicago, Illinois,
relates that the Chapter 11 Trustee filed petitions for LPI and
LPIFS and that while no order has been entered appointing a Chapter
11 Trustee for LPI and LPIFS, the Chapter 11 Trustee is effectively
administering the Subsidiary Debtor cases as if he had been
appointed the chapter 11 trustee of the Subsidiary Debtors through
his status as Trustee of LPHI -- the sole shareholder of the
Subsidiary Debtors.  Mr. Solow asserts that the Subsidiary Debtors
are no longer in possession as the cases are being administered by
a single Trustee.  Mr. Solow further asserts that the purpose of
the exclusivity period -- to give a debtor in possession a limited
first chance to reorganize its business -- does not apply.

The Creditors wish to file a plan of reorganization in the near
future and they are informed and believe that other non-debtors are
also considering filing plans.

LIGHTSTYLES LTD: No Quick Ruling in Suit Against Marvin Windows
---------------------------------------------------------------
District Judge William W. Caldwell for the Middle District of
Pennsylvania denied a motion for summary judgment filed by the
bankruptcy trustee for LightStyles, LTD., in its lawsuit against
Marvin Lumber and Cedar Company, /d/b/a Marvin Windows and Doors.

Leon P. Haller, as the trustee in bankruptcy for LightStyles, filed
the lawsuit alleging several causes of action based on the decision
of Marvin to terminate its business relationship with LightStyles
in August 2011.  LightStyles was formerly a distributor for Marvin
and asserts that Marvin's decision forced it into bankruptcy in
June 2012.

Marvin counterclaimed against LightStyles and sued Robert Slagle,
LightStyles' principal, as a third-party defendant, for fraud in
the inducement. Marvin claims that in January 2009 LightStyles and
Slagle fraudulently induced it to continue the business
relationship by misrepresenting LightStyles' financial condition.

Slagle and LightStyles filed a motion for summary judgment on
Marvin's fraud claim. The parties agree that Pennsylvania law
applies.

Marvin requested oral argument on the motion, but the District
Court saw no need for it.

LOS ARBOLES APARTMENTS: Court Rejects TRO Bid v. VFC Partners
-------------------------------------------------------------
In the case, LOS ARBOLES APARTMENTS & TOWNHOMES, LLC, Plaintiff, v.
VFC PARTNERS 29, LLC, a limited liability company, Defendant, ADV.
NO. 2:15-AP-01347-RK (Bankr. C.D. Cal.), Bankruptcy Judge Robert
Kwan held that: "The court has reviewed plaintiff's application for
temporary restraining order and order to show cause re: preliminary
injunction. Based on the evidentiary showing in this application,
the court is not inclined to issue a temporary restraining order on
an emergency basis ex parte or to issue an order to show cause re:
preliminary injunction because the court does not find that the
evidentiary showing is sufficient to demonstrate a likelihood of
success on the merits in the adversary proceeding, including a
reasonable likelihood of a successful reorganization in the
underlying bankruptcy case, and that irreparable injury is about to
occur absent preliminary injunctive relief. See, e.g., In re Excel
Innovations, Inc., 502 F.3d 1086, 1093-1096 (9th Cir. 1987).
Accordingly, the application for temporary restraining order and
for order to show cause re: preliminary injunction is denied
without prejudice. However, leave is granted for debtor to file and
serve a motion for preliminary injunction on regular notice under
Local Bankruptcy Rule 9013-1 and to have the motion specially set
for a hearing of more than 15 minutes in length by contacting the
courtroom deputy for date and time which would be convenient for
counsel and the court."

Moody's Investors Service assigned a B3 Corporate Family Rating and
B3-PD Probability of Default Rating ("PDR") to Mediaocean LLC while
placing a B2 rating on the company's proposed first lien credit
facilities and a Caa2 rating on the proposed second lien term loan.
The rating action follows the pending acquisition of a majority
stake in the company by affiliates of Vista Equity Partners
("Vista") for an enterprise value of approximately $720 million
(net of fees) with proceeds of the debt financing to be used to
partially fund the purchase transaction. The ratings outlook is
stable.

RATINGS RATIONALE

The B3 CFR reflects the credit risks associated with Mediaocean's
relatively small revenue base and high debt to EBITDA leverage
while also considering the company's customer concentration and
exposure to the growing, but cyclical advertising market which has
been susceptible to economic downturns. The company's top 5
advertising agency clients accounted for a sizeable portion of
total revenues in 2014, although the risks presented by the
relative lack of customer diversity are somewhat mitigated by
Mediaocean's multi-year contracts and longstanding relationships
with these agencies. Additionally, the ratings are constrained by
the risks related to the company's ability to continue to
effectively manage the secular shift in the advertising industry
toward internet and mobile channels and technology advancements
that will allow advertising agency clients to interact more
directly with media channels. Moody's expects debt leverage
(including adjustments for about $84 million of leases) to remain
elevated over the intermediate term, approximating 8.6x by the end
of 2015 and remaining above 7.0x in the following year despite
projected annual mid-teens EBITDA expansion over this time frame.
Moreover, the rating factors in the potential for the company to
pursue acquisitions and shareholder enhancement initiatives which
could cause these metrics to further weaken. However, the risks
associated with the company's credit profile are partially offset
by a meaningful equity cushion and a business supported principally
by Mediaocean's SaaS product suite with an established customer
base of top-tier advertising agencies. Mediaocean is well known in
the advertising industry as a market leading provider of financial
and operational software solutions and the integrated nature of its
product offerings adds top-line predictability while concurrently
supporting strong retention rates and creating high entry barriers
for prospective competitors.

Moody's does not expect the company to generate meaningful annual
free cash flow through 2016. However, $16 million in cash on
Mediaocean's balance sheet at closing and an undrawn $20 million
revolver support the company's good liquidity position. The
revolving credit facility will have a springing covenant, which is
not expected to be in effect over the next 12-18 months, as excess
availability should remain above the minimum levels.

The stable ratings outlook reflects Moody's projection for low to
mid single digit annual revenue growth through 2016 with strong
adjusted EBITDA expansion as Mediaocean capitalizes on a number of
identifiable cost reduction initiatives to boost margins. The
company is well positioned to benefit, from a profitability
standpoint, from the ongoing secular shift towards digital
advertising solutions among marketers from more mature, traditional
channels as this transition favorably impacts Mediaocean's business
economics.

What Could Change the Rating - Up

The ratings could be upgraded if Mediaocean effectively expands
revenues and EBITDA such that adjusted leverage and free to cash
flow to debt are expected to be sustained near 6x and about 5%,
respectively.

What Could Change the Rating - Down

The ratings could be lowered if revenue contracts materially from
current levels, EBITDA margins decline, or the company begins to
generate sizeable free cash flow deficits leading to expectations
for diminished liquidity.

MILLENNIUM HEALTH: Taps Lazard as Restructuring Advisers
--------------------------------------------------------
Matt Jarzemsky, writing for The Wall Street Journal, reported that
Millennium Health LLC is working with restructuring advisers at
Lazard Ltd. to explore options for bolstering its finances as it
looks to move past a billing dispute with the U.S. government.

According to the Journal, citing people familiar with the matter,
Millennium, the country's largest drug-testing laboratory operator,
tapped Lazard to complement a roster of advisers that already
included health-care experts at consulting firm Alvarez & Marsal
and restructuring lawyers at Hogan Lovells, which also does routine
corporate work for the company.

The Journal related that the hires come after the San Diego company
reached a preliminary agreement to pay $250 million to settle
federal officials' allegations it billed the Medicare program for
unnecessary tests.

                        *     *     *

The Troubled Company Reporter, on June 18, 2015, reported that
Moody's Investors Service downgraded Millennium Health, LLC's
Corporate Family Rating to B2 from B1 and Probability of Default
Rating to B2-PD from B1-PD.  Additionally, Moody's downgraded the
ratings on the company's senior secured credit facilities to B2
(LGD 4) from B1 (LGD 4).  Moody's also changed the rating outlook
to negative from stable.

The TCR, on May 18, 2015, reported that Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services lowered its corporate credit rating on San Diego-based
clinical toxicology laboratory services provider Millennium Health
LLC to 'B' from 'B+'.  The rating outlook is negative.  At the same
time, S&P lowered its issue-level rating on Millennium's senior
secured debt to 'B' from 'B+' (the same as the corporate credit
rating).


MOTORS LIQUIDATION: Court Okays Liquidation of New GM Securities
----------------------------------------------------------------
The United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New
York entered an order authorizing Wilmington Trust Company, in its
capacity as trust administrator and trustee of the Motors
Liquidation Company GUC Trust, to:

   * convert some or all of the New GM Warrants in its
     possession into shares of New GM Common Stock using either
     the cashless exercise feature or the full physical settlement
     procedures set forth in the agreements governing the New GM
     Warrants;

   * liquidate some or all of the New GM Warrants in its
     possession, which liquidation will be through one or more
     open market transactions or block trades or other sales,
     through the engagement of a broker-dealer (which might be an
     affiliate of the GUC Trust Administrator) to effect the
     necessary transactions or sales, in such numbers and at such
     time or times as it will determine; and

   * liquidate all, or substantially all, of the shares of New
     GM Common Stock held by the GUC Trust.

On June 24, 2015, certain plaintiffs that are party to a
recall-related litigation filed responses to the Motion.  In those
responses, the Plaintiffs requested a stay of all interim GUC Trust
distributions to holders of Units while appeals and cross-appeals
of the June 1, 2015, Judgment and the April 15, 2015, Decision in
the Recall Litigation are pending.

On July 1, 2015, the Bankruptcy Court held a hearing on the Motion.
At the hearing, counsel for the GUC Trust disclosed that the
Plaintiffs and the GUC Trust are exploring a potential global
resolution of all disputes between the GUC Trust on the one hand
and the Plaintiffs on the other, relating to the Recall Litigation
and the Threshold Issues Appeals.  Those discussions are in their
preliminary stages, and no agreement between the parties has been
reached.  However, in order to provide sufficient time for
discussions to continue, the Plaintiffs and the GUC Trust have
agreed to defer adjudication of the Plaintiffs' stay request until
Aug. 12, 2015.  During the Stay Period only, and in light of the
fact that no distributions of excess assets of the GUC Trust were
anticipated to be made during the Stay Period, the GUC Trust has
agreed to refrain from making any distributions to holders of Units
in respect of excess assets of the GUC Trust.

NAKED BRAND: Has Offer to Amend Existing Warrants
-------------------------------------------------
Naked Brand Group Inc. commenced an issuer tender offer with
respect to certain warrants to purchase common stock of the Company
in order to provide the holders thereof with the opportunity to
amend and exercise their warrants upon the terms and subject to the
conditions set forth in the Company's tender offer statement on
Schedule TO filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on
July 7, 2015.

The Company is offering to amend warrants to purchase an aggregate
of 54,820,199 shares of common stock, consisting of outstanding
warrants to purchase 54,820,199 shares of the Company's common
stock at an exercise price of $0.15 per share, issued to investors
participating in the Company's private placement financing with
respect to which closings occurred on June 10, 2014, and July 8,
2014, and warrants issued to certain lenders in connection with
certain Amendment to Promissory Note Agreements dated April 4,
2014.

Pursuant to the Offer to Amend and Exercise, the Original Warrants
of holders who elect to participate in the Offer to Amend and
Exercise will be amended to:

   (i) reduce the exercise price to $0.10 per share of common
       stock in cash;

  (ii) shorten the exercise period so that they expire
       concurrently with the expiration of the Offer to Amend and
       Exercise at 9:00 p.m. (Pacific Time) on Aug. 3, 2015, as
       may be extended by the Company in its sole discretion;

(iii) restrict the ability of the holder of shares of common
       stock issuable upon exercise of the Amended Warrants to
       sell, make any short sale of, loan, grant any option for
       the purchase of, or otherwise dispose of any of those
       shares without the prior written consent of the Company for
       a period of 120 days after the Expiration Date; and

  (iv) provide that a holder, acting alone or with others, will
       agree not to effect any purchases or sales of any
       securities of the Company in any "short sales" as defined
       in Rule 200 promulgated under Regulation SHO under the
       Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or any type of
       direct and indirect stock pledges, forward sale contracts,
       options, puts, calls, short sales, swaps, "put equivalent
       positions" or similar arrangements, or sales or other
       transactions through non-U.S. broker dealers or foreign
       regulated brokers through the expiration of the Lock-Up
       Period.

The purpose of the Offer to Amend and Exercise is to encourage the
amendment and exercise of the Original Warrants at a significantly
reduced exercise price in order to provide funds to support ongoing
operations, including the Company's efforts to accelerate sales and
distribution of its men's collection, to launch and establish sales
and distribution for its women's collection, to develop additional
product lines including its recently announced Dwyane Wade
signature collection which the Company anticipates will be made
available for retail purchase in 2016, to implement marketing and
brand awareness building campaigns, and to explore opportunities to
establish international distribution relationships and other
strategic partnerships for the Company.

In addition, the Company believes proceeds from the Offer to Amend
and Exercise can also help the Company increase stockholders'
equity, which, along with other changes to the Company's capital
structure that the Company intends to complete, is necessary to the
Company's goal to pursue a listing of its common stock on a
national securities exchange.  The initial listing standards
applicable to the Company for both the NYSE MKT and NASDAQ require
that a company meet minimum stockholder's equity requirements.

Holders may elect to participate in the Offer to Amend and Exercise
with respect to some, all or none of their Original Warrants.  If a
holder chooses not to participate in the Offer to Amend and
Exercise, the holder's Original Warrants will remain in full force
and effect, as originally issued with an exercise price of $0.15
per share.

The period during which Original Warrants may be amended and
exercised on terms described above will commence on July 7, 2015,
through the Expiration Date.

The Company will agree to amend all Original Warrants held by
eligible holders who elect to participate in the Offer to Amend and
Exercise, upon the terms and subject to the conditions of the Offer
to Amend and Exercise and the accompanying Election to Consent,
Participate and Exercise Warrant included with the Offering
Materials.

NORTH TEXAS HOUSING: S&P Lowers 1984 Revenue Bonds Rating to 'CC'
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its rating on North
Texas Housing Finance Corp.'s series 1984 single-family mortgage
revenue bonds two notches to 'CC' from 'CCC'.  The outlook is
negative.

The downgrade reflects Standard & Poor's view that assets will be
insufficient to allow full payment on the bonds.

"As we have noted previously, the rate at which the bonds are
accreting in value is greater than the interest rates on the
investments constituting the issue's assets," said Standard &
Poor's credit analyst Renee Berson.  "This is depleting parity as
the bonds near maturity."

As of May 19, 2015, the issue's assets totaled $34,247.  According
to the trustee, these assets were distributed among the issue's
expense, revenue, and mortgage loan reserve funds.

"The negative outlook reflects our view that the issue's total
assets will be insufficient to meet required parity levels, coupled
with our anticipation of further deterioration,"
Ms. Berson added.

In addition to the various reserve funds mentioned, the bonds were
secured by a pool of mortgage loans.  According to the trustee, the
mortgage loans are no longer outstanding.

OXYSURE SYSTEMS: Closes $3 Million Institutional Financing
----------------------------------------------------------
OxySure Systems, Inc., announced it has closed a $3 million
institutional financing transaction.

Pursuant to the purchase agreements signed on June 30, 2015, the
Company sold $2.7 million in convertible preferred stock and
$300,000 in two convertible notes.  The purchase agreements provide
for two financing tranches, comprising a first tranche for $1
million received by the Company in cash at the closing on
June 30, 2015, and a second tranche for $2 million paid by the
investors into an escrow account at Closing, to be released to the
Company upon the uplisting of the Company's common stock to a
national exchange such as NasdaqCM or NYSE MKT.  The proceeds from
the first tranche are to be used to pay down existing convertible
notes, for uplisting expenses, and for working capital.

"This deal is another step in the right direction for us, and we
are pleased for the vote of confidence it provides," stated Mr.
Julian Ross, CEO of OxySure.  "With the additional capability the
financing provides we are able to continue pursuing our stated
growth goals for 2015, which include growing our sales force,
expanding overseas, preparing our direct to consumer campaign,
launching at least one new product, and completing an Uplisting,"
he added.

The Company received cash proceeds of $1 million in part from the
issuance of 385,000 shares of newly created series C convertible
preferred stock of the Company.  The Series C Preferred has a
stated value of $2.00 per share, pays a 6% quarterly dividend in
cash or common stock at the Company's option, and has a trading
volume restriction of 10% of the Company's weekly trading volume.

The transaction also included $2 million placed into an escrow
account, to be released to the Company upon an Uplisting.  The
Company issued 1,050,000 shares of newly created series D
convertible preferred stock of the Company into an escrow account,
to be released to the investor upon an Uplisting.  The Series D
Preferred has a stated value of $2.00 per share, pays a 6% dividend
in cash or common stock at the Company's option, and has a
conversion price which is the higher of: (i) a floor price of
$0.49; or (ii) the amount that is a 20% discount to the then
current market price of the Company's common stock at the time of
conversion.

PHILMONT INSURANCE: A.M. Best Cuts Fin. Strength Rating to B(fair)
------------------------------------------------------------------
A.M. Best Co. has downgraded the financial strength rating to B
(Fair) from B++ (Good) and the issuer credit rating to "bb+" from
"bbb+" of Philmont Insurance Company (Philmont) (Burlington, VT).
The outlook for both ratings is stable.

The downgrade reflects an increase in losses in 2014, which
resulted in a significant drop in risk-adjusted capitalization, as
measured by Best's Capital Adequacy Ratio (BCAR), to a level that
no longer supported the prior rating.

The current ratings and outlook reflect Philmont's adequate
capitalization and conservative operating strategy.  The ratings
also consider the company's critical role and favorable profile as
part of the Toll Brothers, Inc. (Toll Brothers) [NYSE: TOL]
organization, as well as its strong operating performance during
the past five years, providing insurance coverage to various
projects and subsidiaries of Toll Brothers for certain liability
risks.

Partially offsetting these positive rating factors are Philmont's
volatility of operating results and relatively large loss reserves.
Nevertheless, A.M. Best recognizes the strong liquidity position
of Philmont and the substantial financial resources of the Toll
Brothers organization.

A.M. Best views Philmont's management and corporate strategy as
strengthening factors for the ratings.  In addition, A.M. Best
views the company's enterprise risk management practices as strong
given their impact on the conservative risk culture, defined risk
controls and optimizing Philmont's capital and surplus.  Other
rating considerations include, but are not limited to, the
diversification in lines of business and geography.  The support
and commitment of the parent and the captive's mission also have
been considered positive factors.


PUERTO RICO: 1st Cir. Invalidates Debt Enforcement & Recovery Act
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The following is a statement from Franklin Advisers, Inc. and
OppenheimerFunds:

"The United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit on July 7
unanimously ruled for bondholders when it invalidated Puerto Rico's
Debt Enforcement and Recovery Act as pre-empted by the Federal
Bankruptcy Code.  Puerto Rico had adopted the Act to compel a
restructuring of over $18 billion in bonds issued by the
Commonwealth's electric, sewer and highway corporations.  The
decision protects bondholders across the United States from Puerto
Rico's now-void statute and from any other state attempting to
enact a similar statute.  The First Circuit found that Congress had
reserved to itself the power to authorize a bankruptcy proceeding
for Puerto Rico's municipalities.  The Court held that preemption
'follows straightforwardly from the plain text and is confirmed by
both statutory history and legislative history,' and rejected the
Commonwealth's 'unsound and unsuccessful alternative readings.'

"We continue to work with the Commonwealth and Puerto Rico's
electric company toward a mutually agreed upon revitalization plan,
and expect to work with the Commonwealth generally to develop
reforms that holders of Puerto Rico's bonds can support."


QUICKEN LOANS: S&P Corrects Sr. Unsecured Notes Rating to BB
------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services corrected its rating on Quicken
Loans Inc.'s senior unsecured notes by lowering it to 'BB' from
'BBB-'.  S&P is also correcting the recovery rating on the notes by
revising it to '3H' from '1'.

The rating error occurred on April 27, 2015, when S&P assigned
issue and recovery ratings to the notes.  Per S&P's criteria, it
should have assigned a 'BB' rating to the senior unsecured notes
because S&P typically do not rate senior unsecured notes above the
issuer credit rating when the latter stands in the 'BB' category.
The 'BB' issuer credit rating on the company is unchanged.



QUICKSILVER RESOURCES: Has Until Oct. 13 to File Plan
-----------------------------------------------------
Judge Laurie Selber Silverstein of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the District of Delaware extended Quicksilver Resources Inc., et
al.'s exclusive plan filing period through and including Oct. 13,
2015, and their exclusive solicitation period through and including
Dec. 14, 2015.

The Debtors told the Court that the lessors under the unexpired
leases will not be prejudiced by the extension of time requested by
the Debtors because (i) the Debtors have performed -- and will
continue to perform -- in a timely manner their undisputed
obligations under the Unexpired Leases; and (ii) any lessor may
request that the Court fix an earlier date by which a Debtor must
assume or reject its Unexpired Lease in accordance with Section
365(d)(4) of the Bankruptcy Code.  Thus, the Debtors assert, the
relief requested will not harm lessors, but will merely preserve
the status quo while the Debtors analyze the Unexpired Leases and
decide whether to assume or reject them.

While the Unexpired Leases are central to the Debtors' current
ability to operate and represent potentially valuable assets of the
Debtors' estates, the Debtors simply have not had sufficient time
to complete their analysis of, or develop a strategy with respect
to, whether the Unexpired Leases should be assumed, assigned or
rejected, Paul N. Heath, Esq., at Richards, Layton & Finger, P.A.,
in Wilmington, Delaware, asserted.  The Debtors' senior management
and legal staff simply have not had the time necessary to make
informed decisions regarding the Unexpired Leases, Mr. Heath said.

If the extension is not granted, the Debtors will be unable to
adequately consider whether or not the Unexpired Leases are
necessary, which may result in ill-informed decisions -- e.g.,
assuming an Unexpired Lease that should be rejected or rejecting an
Unexpired Lease that is either necessary or could otherwise be
successfully monetized -- that could harm the Debtors and their
stakeholders, Mr. Heath added.  The Debtors believe, however, that
the requested extension of time will allow them to make reasoned
decisions concerning each Unexpired Lease and its relative
importance to the Debtors' restructuring, Mr. Hearth further
asserted.

The Ad Hoc Group of Second Lienholders filed a statement saying it
supports the Debtors' request for a 90-day extension of the
exclusive periods.  An extension of the exclusive periods will
increase the likehood of a greater distribution to the Debtors'
stakeholders by facilitating an orderly, efficient, and
cost-effective restructuring process for the benefit of all
stakeholders, the Ad Hoc Group said.  The Ad Hoc Group added that
while it believes that an extension of the Debtors' exclusive
periods is presently warranted, its continuing support of the
Debtors' reorganization effort is contingent on the Debtors
consummating a restructuring expeditiously.

ROADMARK CORP: Bankruptcy Administrator Balks at Ritchie's Fees
---------------------------------------------------------------
The Bankruptcy Administrator for the Eastern District of North
Carolin, filed a limited objection to Roadmark Corporation's motion
to employ auctioneer and approve contract to auction.

The Bankruptcy Administrator has issues with the commission
schedule proposed in the motion.  Based on the motion, the
auctioneer will be paid:

   a) 8% of the gross sale price for the items sold at public   
      auction;

   b) $65 document administration fee for each piece of
      equipment with a title;

   c) reimbursement of other amounts and out-of-pocket costs as
      contemplated by the auction contract.

In addition to the compensation schedule, the auctioneer is also
proposing to charge purchasers of the Debtor's equipment
administrative fees under these schedule:

   a) 10% on all lots selling for $2,500 or less;

   b) 2.5% on all lots selling for over $2,500, to a
      maximum fee of $950 per lot;

The Bankruptcy Administrator says the Motion does not provide
sufficient information for the Bankruptcy Administrator to
determine whether a deviation from Local Rule 6005-1 is warranted.


The Debtor, in its Motion, is asking for permission to employ
Ritchie Bros., to conduct a public sale of certain equipment, and
to enter into a contract to auction.  The Debtor will be
responsible for all costs of preparing and transporting the
equipment to the Ritchie Bros. site in Butner, NC for the auction.

       be necessary and proper in chapter 11 cases.

Gordon Arata was originally retained to provide oil and gas law and
regulatory representation in 2011.  The engagement ended in May of
2012, though Gordon Arata has been engaged since then to provide
representation in responding to requests by the Debtors' auditors
for annual audit letter reports.  The current representation of the
Debtors commenced in January 2015, with the retention to include
oil and gas and regulatory representation as well as restructuring
alternative advice as necessary.  Gordon Arata has represented the
Debtors in these areas since January 2015.  Gordon Arata has been
paid the aggregate sum of $93,210 since January 2015, with the last
billing having covered time through the filing of these cases.

The Company has selected Louis M. Phillips, Cynthia A. Nicholson,
C. Peck Hayne, Jr., William A. Sherwood, Patrick "Rick" M. Shelby,
and the firm of Gordon Arata for various reasons, including the
fact that Gordon Arata has specialized experience in bankruptcy
law, and can provide the Company's estate with representation on
all aspects of the matter for which the estate may require legal
representation and advice.

Gordon Arata has received in trust a retainer in the amount of
$50,000.

In response to the U.S. Trustee's Appendix B Guidelines, Gordon
Arata stated that the firm did not agree to any variations from, or
alternatives to, its standard or customary billing arrangements for
the engagements and that none of the professionals included in the
engagement vary their rate based on the geographic location of the
bankruptcy case.

Furthermore, Gordon Arata related that it began representing
Saratoga Resources in 2011, within the realm of oil and gas and
regulatory law issues.  Gordon Arata represented Saratoga Resources
under its standard terms of engagement that provided for hourly
rate billing and cost and expense reimbursement at the firm’s
then preferred rates.  As of the commencement of the representation
the hourly rate charged by primary counsel, Bob Duplantis, was $400
per hour.  In 2012, in accordance with the terms of engagement, Mr.
Duplantis’s hourly rate increased to $425.  Louis M. Phillips’
preferred hourly from 2010 through 2013 was also $425.  As of
January 1, 2014 the preferred rate for him increased to $450, and
has remained at $450 since.  The actual average worked rate for
Louis M. Phillips in 2012 was $428.16 and the actual average billed
rate was $487.34 for all work done by him.  The same rates in 2013
were $439.29 and $578.04.  The same rates in 2014 were $443.22 and
$432.15.  For 2015 thus far, the same rates have been $447 and
$447.67.

The firm assures the Court that it is a "disinterested person" as
the term is defined in Section 101(14) of the Bankruptcy Code and
does not represent any interest adverse to the Debtors and their
estates.

SIMPLY FASHION: Court Approves Horton Auction as Auctioneer
-----------------------------------------------------------
Simply Fashion Stores, Ltd. sought and obtained permission from the
Hon. Laurel M. Isicoff of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Southern District of Florida to employ Horton Auction & Real Estate

subject to Bankruptcy Court approval.

Horton has posted a bond in the amount of $500,000 in connection
with the proposed auction. True copies of the appropriate licenses
and bonds are attached to the Knox Affidavit; however, because a

provided to the Court (with the original to the U.S. Trustee) upon
receipt.

to be compensated based upon a customary buyers' premium in the
amount of ten percent (10%), to be paid at the sale by each

SPECTRUM ANALYTICAL: Court Denies Access to Bank's Cash Collateral
------------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Massachusetts denied
Spectrum Analytical, Inc., et al.'s motion for approval to use cash
collateral in which of Bank Rhode Island asserts an interest.

As previously reported by The Troubled Company Reporter, on
Jan. 15, 2014, the Debtors entered into a financing transaction
with the bank whereby the bank loaned the Debtors the total sum of
$8,400,000.  The debt to Bank Rhode Island is secured by, inter
alia, the Debtor's receivables and other cash collateral.  As of
the Petition Date, the total balance due to the bank is
$8,900,000.

In the interim, Mark Russo, the Rhode Island State Court receiver,
is granted leave to continue the operations of the companies in the
regular course of their businesses; and bank is granted a
postpetition lien in all of the Debtor's assets to the extent of
the validity, perfection, priority, enforceability and sufficiency
of the bank's prepetition security interests, but no greater than
any postpetition diminution of the bank's prepetition collateral.

TEGNA INC: Moody's Assigns Ba1 Rating to Extended $1.32BB Revolver
------------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned Ba1, LGD3 to TEGNA Inc.'s
extended $1.32 billion Sr. unsecured revolving credit facility and
new $200 million Sr. unsecured term loan. The company's recently
announced amendment to the credit facilities extended the maturity
of the senior unsecured revolver and term loan each to June 2020
from 2018. Additional revisions included relaxing the maximum total
leverage covenant to 5.0x (as defined) with step-downs beginning in
September 2017. The amendment and extension of the revolver
facility is credit positive, but there is no immediate impact on
debt ratings of the company. The existing Ba1 corporate family
rating, Ba1-PD probability of default rating, and Ba1 senior
unsecured debt ratings remain unchanged. The outlook remains
negative.

Issuer: TEGNA Inc.

Assigned:

EXTENDED $1.32 billion senior unsecured revolving credit facility
due 2020; Assigned Ba1, LGD3

NEW $200 million senior unsecured term loan due 2020; Assigned Ba1,
LGD3

Ratings are subject to review of final documentation and no
material change in the terms and conditions of the transaction as
provided to Moody's. Ratings on the existing revolver will be
withdrawn.

RATINGS RATIONALE

TEGNA's Ba1 corporate family rating reflects the favorable revenue
shift to higher growth broadcast and digital businesses and away
from lower margin publishing operations as a result of the June 29,
2015 spin-off of publishing operations which partially offsets the
negative impact from the increase in leverage and weakening of
coverage ratios due to the debt financed acquisition of the
remaining 73% ownership in Cars.com in October 2014 followed by the
recent loss of EBITDA generated from publishing operations.
Persistent revenue pressure in publishing was a rating overhang
that was eliminated with the separation, along with the transfer to
spinco of more than 75% of unfunded pension liabilities and the
majority of operating lease obligations. Moody's estimates
debt-to-EBITDA pro forma for the spin-off, will be roughly 4x at
FYE2015 (2-year average, including Moody's standard adjustments,
excluding the minority interest share of CareerBuilder's EBITDA)
which exceeds levels for the company's Ba1 corporate family rating.
Moody's expects 2-year average leverage to improve to the mid 3x
range by the end of 2016, despite announced share buybacks, which
better positions the company in the Ba1 corporate family rating.

Since the debt financed acquisition of Belo Corp. at the end of
2013, TEGNA has tracked Moody's expectations with non-political
broadcast revenue increasing 9.8% in 2014 (pro forma for the Belo
acquisition) and with digital revenue also increasing 8% in 2014
(pro forma for the Cars.com transaction). Looking forward, Moody's
expects double digit revenue growth, supported by record level
political ad demand in 2016, will contribute to good free cash flow
generation and the ability to improve credit metrics, including
leverage, within an acceptable time frame. Ratings reflect the
inherent cyclicality of the broadcast television business and
increasing media fragmentation. Liquidity is very good with
adequate balance sheet cash, growing free cash flow, and over $700
million of revolver availability.

TEGNA Inc. (formerly known as Gannett Co., Inc.), is a leading
broadcaster (57% of reported revenue for LTM March 2015) with
significant digital operations (43%). The company's broadcasting
operations consist of 46 television stations and represent the
largest Big 4 affiliate group in the top 25 markets, reaching
roughly one-third of US television households. Digital operations
include Cars.com and a 52.9% interest in CareerBuilder (fully
consolidated in financial statements). The company, headquartered
in McLean, VA, is publicly traded with a single class structure.
Major shareholders include The Vanguard Group, Inc. (7.7%), funds
associated with Carl Icahn (6.6%) as a result of purchases since
the second quarter of 2014, and JPMorgan (4.4%) with remaining
shares being widely held. Pro forma for the spin-off of publishing
operations, the company reported $3.0 billion of revenue for LTM
March 29, 2015.

TRAVELPORT WORLDWIDE: Acquires Mobile Travel Technologies Ltd
-------------------------------------------------------------
Travelport Worldwide Limited has acquired Mobile Travel
Technologies Ltd, a private company based in Dublin, Ireland.

MTT provides an industry-leading mobile travel platform and product
set that allows airlines, hotels, corporate travel management
companies and travel agencies to engage with their customers
through sophisticated, tailored mobile services including apps,
mobile web and intelligent mobile messaging.  MTT's mobile apps and
services are then delivered, under the customer brand, to
smartphones, tablets and wearable devices, including the Apple
Watch.

Its clients include some of travel's most progressive companies
such as easyJet, Singapore Airlines, Saudia, BCD Travel, Capita
Travel and Events and the LATAM Airlines Group.

MTT works with its clients to create mobile applications and
intelligent mobile services that deliver a highly customer-centric
experience.  With its mobile travel platform and product set, it
can enable travel companies to quickly launch high-end, engaging
mobile services in a cost effective manner.  Services include
mobile search, booking and check-in as well as products such as MTT
Engage, which provides real-time, personalized messages and offers
to the traveler, and MTT Concierge Live, which delivers a "day of
travel" experience via a traveler's mobile device including live,
contextual travel updates and airport guidance.  As well as
receiving many industry accolades, MTT was recently featured in
Gartner's "Cool Vendors in Travel and Hospitality, 2015" report.

Numerous recent industry research studies into the mobile commerce
sector, indicate that the sector is positioned for further rapid
growth.  In 2014, mobile commerce accounted for around one third of
all e-commerce transactions globally (source: Criteo); air ticket
transactions are predicted to grow from just under 200 million in
2014 to over 540 million by 2018, with transaction value increasing
from US$52 billion to US$145 billion for the same period (source:
Juniper).  Similarly, in the US alone, the transaction value of
hotel bookings made using mobile devices is expected to grow from
US$2.7 billion in 2014 to US$5.4 billion in 2016, reflecting a
growth rate of more than 100% in just two years (source: Juniper).

Gordon Wilson, Travelport's President and CEO, commented:

"It is a natural extension of Travelport's strategy of redefining
travel commerce to have acquired, what we believe to be, the
largest and most successful company focused on delivering
sophisticated mobile services and apps to the travel industry.
Adding MTT as an expanded capability to our existing travel
commerce platform extends our reach further, and at the higher
value add end of the service spectrum for our airline, hotel,
travel management company and travel agency clients.

At the same time, MTT will benefit from the network effect of
Travelport in terms of infrastructure, our relationships with
additional prospective clients and access to our industry leading
content.

We will run MTT as a wholly owned subsidiary of Travelport,
retaining existing CEO, Gerry Samuels, along with his senior team,
so that they can maintain their singular focus on the mobile sector
and the deep seated customer relationships they build."

Gerry Samuels, MTT's CEO, added:

"Becoming part of the Travelport family will enable MTT to
accelerate what we are already doing in the travel industry -
bringing cutting edge mobile innovations to airlines and travel
intermediaries so that they can better serve the end traveller with
innovative and personalised mobile services that transform the
travel experience.

MTT has experienced very significant growth as the market and
demand for mobile travel has expanded and there is enormous
potential to grow further.  Now with the support of a global
industry leader such as Travelport, we will be even better placed
to capitalise and expand into the considerable opportunities we see
ahead of us."

Travelport's acquisition of MTT follows other recent investments it
has made as part of its ongoing strategy to redefine travel
commerce, with a particular emphasis on the fast growing digital
economy.  These investments include Travel IT, a next generation
German tour operator distribution system; Hotelzon, a hotel
distribution company focused on enabling independent hotels to take
part in the online corporate travel economy and Locomote, an
Australian based corporate travel applications development company.
Travelport has also invested in, and expanded, eNett, a pioneering
B2B electronic payments company which now operates in 47 countries
around the world and continues to grow rapidly.

Travelport has also invested organically to enable both low cost
and network carriers to display and sell their full range of
products and offers through its Travel Commerce Platform on a
unique and fully integrated basis, and to offer an industry leading
portfolio of individual hotel properties (650,000) that are fully
bookable in real time.

The acquisition was funded from Travelport's cash resources.
Travelport expects the acquisition to be neutral for its financial
performance in 2015 and accretive in future years.

In connection with the transaction, Travelport issued grants
totalling EUR14,400,000 to 28 MTT executives, to be paid in the
first quarter of 2018 in Travelport common shares based on MTT
performance targets and other terms and conditions.  Based on
yesterday's closing price of Travelport common shares and foreign
exchange rate, assuming all of the awards are earned and paid,
Travelport would deliver approximately 1,152,086 common shares to
MTT executives in 2018.  The ultimate number of Travelport common
shares that are delivered to MTT executives will, however, be based
upon the closing price and foreign exchange rate at the time of
such conversion in 2018, as well as MTT performance and the other
terms and conditions set forth in the awards.

TRUMP ENTERTAINMENT: Judge Allows Deed Restriction in Plaza Case
----------------------------------------------------------------
Joseph Checkler, writing for Dow Jones' Daily Bankruptcy Review,
reported that Judge Kevin Gross of U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Delaware said Trump Entertainment Resorts Inc. could
place a restriction on the deed of its shuttered Trump Plaza
property that could keep the casino closed for an additional 10
years as a tax-saving measure.

According to the report, Judge Gross offered a quick approval of
the request, which effectively exempts the Trump Plaza from having
to pay pro-rata taxes along with other Atlantic City casinos, under
a bill waiting to be signed by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.

Boardwalk casinos that bear the name of Donald Trump, returned to

Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort by Sept. 16, 2014, and, absent union
concessions, the Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino by Nov. 13, 2104.

The Debtors have sought an order authorizing the joint
administration of their Chapter 11 cases and the consolidation

shares of its common stock to Mr. Weber.  In connection with the
amendment, the Company issued 20,000,000 shares of its common stock
to its subsidiary, Taladin, Inc., which pledged these shares to
secure payment of the Notes to Weber and previous pledge agreements
with MRC were cancelled.

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.

Roy C. Smith is a professor of entrepreneurship, finance and
international business at NYU, and teaches on the faculty there of
the Stern School of Business.  Prior to 1987, he was a partner at
Goldman Sachs.  He received a B.S. from the Naval Academy in 1960
and an M.B.A. from Harvard in 1966.

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.
