ALPHA NATURAL: Moody's Lowers Corp. Family Rating to 'C'
--------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded Alpha Natural Resources, Inc's
Corporate Family Rating (CFR) to C from Caa3, and the Probability
of Default Rating (PDR) to D-PD from Caa3-PD.  Moody's also
downgraded the first lien term loan to C from B3, second lien notes
to C from Caa3, and the senior unsecured notes to C from Ca. The
downgrades were prompted by the Alpha's announcement that that the
company and certain of its wholly-owned subsidiaries have filed for
relief under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code in the
Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Virginia in Richmond
on Aug. 3, 2015.  The outlook is stable.  Subsequent to the
actions, Moody's will withdraw all ratings and the outlook.

Downgrades:

Issuer: Alpha Natural Resources, Inc

  Corporate Family Rating (Local Currency), Downgraded to C from
   Caa3
  Probability of Default Rating, Downgraded to D-PD from Caa3-PD
  Senior Secured Bank Credit Facility (Local Currency), Downgraded

   to C, LGD2 from B3, LGD2
  Senior Secured Regular Bond/Debenture (Local Currency),
   Downgraded to C, LGD3 from Caa3, LGD3
  Regular Bond/Debenture (Local Currency), Downgraded to C, LGD5
   from Ca, LGD5

Withdrawn:

  Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating - SGL-3

Outlook Actions:

  Outlook, changed to Stable

RATINGS RATIONALE

Previously on April 2, 2015, Moody's downgraded the corporate
family rating (CFR) of Alpha to Caa3 from Caa1 and the probability
default rating (PDR) to Caa3-PD from Caa1-PD, reflecting continued
stress in the coal sector and the company's completion of debt
repurchases of an aggregate of $593 million, which qualified as a
limited default under Moody's definition of default.

Alpha Natural Resources is one of the largest coal companies in the
US, and the largest US producer and exporter of metallurgical (met)
coal.  The company's operations are located in the Central
Appalachia (CAPP) and Northern Appalachia (NAPP) regions, as well
as the Powder River Basin (PRB).  In 2014, Alpha generated revenues
of $4.3 billion

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Global Mining
Industry published in August 2014.  Other methodologies used
include Loss Given Default for Speculative-Grade Non-Financial
Companies in the U.S., Canada and EMEA published in June 2009.



ALTISOURCE SOLUTIONS: Moody's Affirms 'B3' CFR, Outlook Stable
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service affirmed Altisource Solutions S.a.r.l.'s
B3 senior secured bank credit facility and corporate family
ratings.  The outlook was changed to stable from negative.

RATINGS RATIONALE

The change in outlook reflects the modest improvement in
Altisource's financial profile as a result of improvement in
Ocwen's stability and a growing view of Altisource's ability to
manage in the event of a material reduction in Ocwen related
revenues.

Altisource's financial position continues to be highly reliant on
Ocwen Financial Corp (B2 stable) from whom 59% of Altisource's
revenues are derived.  Altisource has made expanding its businesses
and building out its suite of products a priority with modest
success.  However, such businesses currently make a very small
contribution to total revenues.

Altisource's services agreements with Ocwen run through 2025.
However, approximately 60% of Altisource's default related services
revenue are for loans that Ocwen services for New Residential
Investment Corp. (unrated).  Ocwen could be terminated as servicer
at New Residential's option after April 2017 if Ocwen's does not
comply with its minimum servicer quality rating by then.
Therefore, Altisource's revenue related to this arrangement is at
risk, and without a significant increase in revenues from other
businesses, Altisource would be challenged to generate positive
income.

Altisource's ratings could be upgraded in the event of a
strengthening in the company's financial profile through for
example greater certainty with respect to the New Residential/Ocwen
agreement, a significant increase in income from the company's
non-Ocwen businesses, or significant deleveraging.

Altisource's ratings could be downgraded in the event of a material
reduction in net income or increase in leverage.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Finance Company
Global Rating Methodology published in March 2012.



AMAG PHARMACEUTICALS: S&P Raises Corp. Credit Rating to 'B+'

Standard & Poor's Ratings Services raised its corporate credit
rating on Waltham, Mass.-based AMAG Pharmaceuticals Inc. to 'B+'
from 'B'.  The outlook is stable.

At the same time, S&P assigned a 'BB' issue-level rating and '1'
recovery rating to AMAG's $350 million senior secured first-lien
term loan due 2021.  The '1' recovery rating reflects S&P's
expectation of very high (90% to 100%) recovery in the event of
default.  S&P also assigned a 'B+' issue-level rating and '4'
recovery rating to AMAG's $450 million senior unsecured notes due
2023.  The '4' recovery rating reflects S&P's expectation of
average (30% to 50%, on the low end of the range) recovery in the
event of payment default.

"The rating upgrade reflects higher profitability than we
originally expected, complemented by a new business that will
preserve good margins," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst
Michael Berrian.  In particular, stronger-than-expected performance
of Makena drove more than $100 million of EBITDA and about $70
million of free cash flow in the first half of 2015, both of which
are on track to exceed our prior estimates of $176 million and $125
million, respectively.  Moreover, following the recent equity
offering, S&P expects AMAG to have $400 million of pro forma cash
on its balance sheet.

The stable outlook reflects S&P's expectation that continued growth
of Makena and Feraheme, and the benefit from CBR, will provide
above-industry average revenue growth and EBITDA expansion that
will contribute to free cash flow generation and leverage between
4x and 5x through the end of 2016.  Despite the potential for very
rapid deleveraging, S&P believes the company will give priority to
acquisitions over debt reduction and will keep leverage at more
than 4x.

S&P could lower the rating if its base-case revenue growth and
EBITDA generation expectations are less than S&P expects because of
lower-than-anticipated market share gains, patient compliance with
Makena, or the inability to grow CBR.  This would contribute to
leverage of about 5x and FFO to total debt of 12% or less. Fiscal
2016 revenue growth contracting to less than 2%, coupled with gross
margins contracting by at least 400 basis points would contribute
to this outcome.

The continued lack of scale, need for a longer proven trajectory of
sales growth, and need to integrate and grow CBR precludes a higher
rating over the next year.



AMERICAN APPAREL: Amends Lease with Alameda Square
--------------------------------------------------
American Apparel, Inc., entered into a Second Amendment to Standard
Industrial/Commercial Single-Tenant Lease-Net with Alameda Square
Owner LLC for its two leased buildings in downtown Los Angeles,
California.

The Amendment reduces certain rent, fees, interest and
reimbursements incurred primarily from periods in the first half of
2014 from $2,995,140 to $1,800,000 (which amount will be due in
eleven monthly installments, starting on April 1, 2016 and ending
on Feb. 1, 2017) and reduces the base rent for the remaining
premises under the Lease by fifty percent (for the period
commencing on April 1, 2016, through the end of the term of the
Lease).  The Company also agreed to pay certain legal expenses of
Alameda in connection with the Amendment.

Under the terms of the Amendment, the Company will vacate one of
the leased buildings (an under-utilized 400,000 sq ft building not
occupied by any manufacturing or distribution operations) on or
before March 31, 2016, reducing annual rent costs under the Lease
by approximately $2,100,000.  The Company will continue to occupy
the second 400,000 sq ft building housing its corporate offices and
manufacturing operations.

                        About Andalay Solar

Founded in 2001, Andalay Solar, Inc., formerly Westinghouse Solar,
Inc., is a provider of innovative solar power systems.  In 2007,
the Company pioneered the concept of integrating the racking,
wiring and grounding directly into the solar panel.  This
revolutionary solar panel, branded "Andalay", quickly won industry
acclaim.  In 2009, the Company again broke new ground with the
first integrated AC solar panel, reducing the number of components
for a rooftop solar installation by approximately 80 percent and
lowering labor costs by approximately 50 percent.  This AC panel,
which won the 2009 Popular Mechanics Breakthrough Award, has
become the industry's most widely installed AC solar panel.  A new
generation of products named "Instant Connect" was introduced in
2012 and is expected to achieve even greater market acceptance.

Andalay Solar reported a net loss attributable to common
stockholders of $1.87 million for the year ended Dec. 31, 2014,
compared with a net loss attributable to common stockholders of
$3.85 million for the year ended Dec. 31, 2013.

As of March 31, 2015, the Company had $2.55 million in total
assets, $4.68 million in total liabilities and a $2.12 million
total stockholders' deficit.

Burr Pilger Mayer, Inc., in San Jose, California, issued a "going
concern" qualification on the consolidated financial statements for
the year ended Dec. 31, 2014, citing that the Company's significant
operating losses and negative cash flow from operations raise
substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern.


ANIXTER INC: Moody's Confirms Ba2 CFR, Outlook Negative
-------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service confirmed Anixter Inc.'s Ba2 Corporate
Family Rating ("CFR") and Ba2-PD Probability of Default Rating
following the company's announcement that it will acquire HD
Supply's Power Solutions division for approximately $825 million.
In related rating actions, Moody's: 1) confirmed the Ba3 rating
assigned to Anixter's $350 million senior unsecured notes due 2019;
2) confirmed the Ba3 rating assigned to Anixter's $400 million
senior unsecured notes due 2021; 3) assigned a Ba3 rating to the
proposed $350 million senior unsecured notes due 2023; and 4)
changed Anixter's outlook to negative.  This concludes the review
Moody's initiated July 16, 2015.

These ratings/assessments will also be affected by this action:

Corporate Family Rating confirmed at Ba2;
Probability of Default Rating confirmed at Ba2-PD;
$350 million senior unsecured notes due 2019 confirmed at Ba3, to
(LGD5) from (LGD4);
$400 million senior unsecured notes due 2021 confirmed at Ba3, to
(LGD5) from (LGD4);
$350 million senior unsecured notes due 2023 assigned Ba3 (LGD5);
and
Speculative grade liquidity rating affirmed at SGL-2.

RATINGS RATIONALE:

The Ba2 CFR is supported by Anixter's large scale, healthy cash
flow available to reduce debt, and its commitment to reduce
financial leverage.  Its product, geographic and customer
diversity, also support the rating.  End market demand has proven
to be resilient through various economic cycles.  Moody's
anticipates the acquisition of Power Solutions will enhance
Anixter's existing product portfolio and end market penetration.
The rating is constrained by the company's low margins, low organic
growth, and elevated financial leverage.

OUTLOOK:

The negative outlook reflects increased vulnerability to credit
deterioration due to integration risks, and elevated financial
leverage.  Increased borrowings used to finance Anixter's
acquisition of Power Solutions will increase its debt-to-EBITDA
leverage above Moody's stated downgrade trigger of 3.5x at close.

What could change the rating -- Up:

The rating outlook may be stabilized once debt-to-EBITDA leverage
is driven comfortably below 3.5x and the company successfully
completes the integration of Power Solutions.  Consideration for
upgrade for Anixter would be possible once (EBITDA -- CapEx) /
Interest Expense is sustained above 5.25x and adjusted Debt/EBITDA
is sustained below 2.25x (all ratios incorporate Moody's standard
adjustments).

What could change the rating -- Down:

A downgrade could ensue if Anixter fails to improve operating
performance such that (EBITDA -- CapEx) / Interest Expense falls
towards 2.5x and adjusted Debt/EBITDA remains above 3.5x longer
than currently expected.  Significant debt-financed acquisitions,
sizeable share repurchases, special dividends that increase debt
levels or negatively impact Anixter's liquidity profile will also
adversely affect the ratings.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Global
Distribution & Supply Chain Services published in November 2011.
Other methodologies used include Loss Given Default for
Speculative-Grade Non-Financial Companies in the U.S., Canada and
EMEA published in June 2009.

Corporate Profile:

Headquartered in Glenview, Illinois, Anixter, Inc. is a global
distributor of communications products, electrical and electronic
wire and cable, and OEM supply.  The company's end users include
enterprises, data centers, manufacturers, natural resources
companies, utilities and original equipment manufacturers. Revenues
on a pro forma basis inclusive of HD Power Supply for the 12 months
ended April 3, 2015, total approximately $7.8 billion. All Moody's
calculations include its standard adjustments.

Power Solutions distributes pole line equipment, lighting, wire and
cable (W&C) and MRO products to investor owned utilities, public
power utilities, electrical contractors and industrial business end
markets.  Power Solutions reported $1.9 billion of revenue at FYE
2014.



APPVION INC: Moody's Lowers CFR to B2, Outlook Stable
-----------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded Appvion Inc.'s corporate
family rating (CFR) to B2 from B1, probability of default rating
(PDR) to B2-PD from B1-PD, and second lien senior secured notes to
B3 from B2.  The revolving credit facility and first-lien term loan
were affirmed at Ba2, and the speculative grade liquidity rating
remains SGL-2.  The rating outlook is stable.

The downgrade reflects the smaller, less-diversified company that
Appvion becomes following the sale of its high margin
micro-encapsulation business for $208 million.  Over the past
several years, the growing encapsulation business (which generated
about 20% of the company's LTM EBITDA) mitigated some of the
financial effects of lower than trend thermal paper prices and
declining carbonless paper markets.  Most of the net proceeds from
sale will be used to pay down debt ($165 million); the balance will
be used to further reduce debt if not spent on capital investments
or acquisitions within one year.  While Appvion's debt will
immediately decrease by almost 30%, it will still leave the company
with high pro forma leverage (adjusted debt to EBITDA) of about 9x
(LTM March 2015) given the current cyclically low thermal paper
prices.

Issuer: Appvion, Inc.

Downgrades:

  Corporate Family Rating, Downgraded to B2 from B1
  Probability of Default Rating, Downgraded to B2-PD from B1-PD
  Senior Secured Regular Bond/Debenture, Downgraded to B3(LGD4)
   from B2(LGD5)

Affirmations:

  Senior Secured First Lien Term Loan, Affirmed Ba2(LGD2)
  Senior Secured Revolving Credit Facility, Affirmed Ba2(LGD2)

Outlook Actions:
  Outlook, Remains Stable

RATINGS RATIONALE

Appvion's B2 corporate family rating reflects high adjusted
leverage, the secular decline in the demand for the company's
carbonless paper business and the cash repurchase obligations
related to its employee stock ownership plan.  The ratings also
consider the company's leading global market positions in thermal
and carbonless papers and expectations that the company's exposure
to potential contingencies associated with environmental issues
have been capped.  Over the mid-term, the growth of the company's
thermal and specialty paper businesses are expected to partially
offset the decline in the company's carbonless paper business.

Appvion's speculative grade liquidity rating of SGL-2 reflects the
company's good liquidity position.  Following the sale of the
micro-encapsulation business, Appvion has approximately $2 million
of cash (excluding $35 million reserved for potential acquisitions,
investments or further debt reduction), and essentially full
availability under its $75 million revolving credit facility due
2018.  In connection with the sale, Appvion reduced the size of its
revolver to $75 million (from $100 million) and replaced existing
springing covenants with two new maintenance financial covenants.
Moody's estimates cash consumption of about $20 million over the
next four quarters. Appvion has modest debt maturities over the
next 12 months (about $2 million) and covenant issues are not
expected over the near term.  Most of the company's assets are
encumbered.

The stable outlook reflects Moody's expectations of declining
carbonless and thermal point-of-sale receipt paper volumes offset
by thermal tag, leisure and entertainment paper volume growth.
EBITDA margins are expected to improve as point-of-sale receipt
paper prices recover towards historic norms and as the company
realizes the full benefits of a lower cost paper supply contract.
An upgrade may be warranted if normalized adjusted debt to EBITDA
drops below 4.5 times and (RCF-CapEx)/TD approaches 5%.  The rating
might be downgraded if normalized debt to EBITDA exceeds 6 times
and free cash flow is negative, most likely due to an inability to
replace declining carbonless paper volumes with either new or
existing products, a significant escalation in environmental costs
or a deterioration in liquidity.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Global Paper
and Forest Products Industry published in October 2013.  Other
methodologies used include Loss Given Default for Speculative-Grade
Non-Financial Companies in the U.S., Canada and EMEA published in
June 2009.

Appvion headquartered in Appleton, Wisconsin, manufactures
specialty coated paper products, including carbonless papers (60%
or EBITDA) and thermal papers (40% of EBITDA).  In 2001, the
company was acquired by its employees through an employee stock
ownership plan (ESOP).  LTM sales ending March 2015 were about $738
million excluding the micro-encapsulation business.



ARCH COAL: Reports $168 Million Net Loss for Second Quarter
-----------------------------------------------------------
Arch Coal, Inc. filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission

million on $644.4 million of revenues for the three months ended

million of revenues for the same period in 2014.

Debt Exchanges in accordance with Fitch's Distressed Debt Exchange
criteria.

The TCR, on May 6, 2015, reported that Moody's Investors Service
downgraded the corporate family rating of Arch Coal, Inc to Caa3
from Caa1 and the probability default rating to Caa3-PD from
Caa1-PD.  The downgrade follows the continued stress on the coal
sector, and the resulting deterioration in the company's credit
metrics.  At the same time, Moody's downgraded the ratings on the
senior secured term loan and bank revolving facility to Caa1 from
B2, the second lien notes to Caa3 from Caa1, and all unsecured
notes to Ca, from Caa2.  Moody's also affirmed the Speculative
Grade Liquidity rating of SGL-3.  The outlook is negative.

As reported by the TCR on July 9, 2015, Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services said it lowered its corporate credit rating on St.
Louis-based Arch Coal Inc. to 'CC' from 'CCC+'.  Standard & Poor's
Ratings Services said it lowered its corporate credit rating on St.
Louis-based Arch Coal Inc. to 'CC' from 'CCC+'.  The rating action
reflects Arch Coal's July 3, 2015, announcement of a private debt
exchange offer for its senior unsecured debt.

BERRY PLASTICS: Reports Third Quarter Fiscal 2015 Results
---------------------------------------------------------
Berry Plastics Group, Inc. reported a consolidated net loss of $13
million on $1.2 billion of net sales for the quarterly period ended
June 27, 2015, compared to consolidated net income of $15 million
on $1.2 billion of net sales for the quarterly period ended June
28, 2014.

For the three quarterly periods ended June 27, 2015, the Company
reported consolidated net income of $38 million on $3.6 billion of
net sales compared to consolidated net income of $33 million on
$3.6 billion of net sales for the three quarterly periods ended
June 28, 2014.

As of June 27, 2015, the Company had $5 billion in total assets, $5
billion in total liabilities, $13 million in redeemable
non-controlling interest, and a stockholders' deficit of $87
million.

"We reported record operating EBITDA for any quarter in the
Company's history.  Operating EBITDA improved by $7 million over
the same prior year quarter, primarily as a result of lower raw
material costs along with contributions and synergies from our
recent acquisitions.  Additionally, we had strong cash generation
in the quarter, as cash flow from operations was $180 million
resulting in $140 million of adjusted free cash flow," said Jon
Rich, Chairman and CEO of Berry Plastics.

"We are increasing our 2015 fiscal year adjusted free cash flow
guidance to $400 million, up $50 million from our last earnings
call.  Our revised guidance includes capital expenditures of $180
million, cash interest of $190 million, other cash costs of
approximately $35 million, and a source of working capital of $25
million.  Our tax receivable agreement payment of $39 million
remains unchanged, stated Rich.

"We anticipate our fourth fiscal quarter sales volumes to be
consistent with the past several quarters.  Despite overall market
weakness we have seen positive growth in several product categories
and continue to presume that the fundamentals of our end markets
have not changed as we remain focused on our strategic approaches
to help our customers."

               About Brugnara Properties VI

Brugnara Properties VI filed a Chapter 11 petition (Bankr. N.D.
Cal. Case No. 14-31867) in San Francisco, California, on Dec.
31,2014, without stating a reason.

On Jan. 2, 2015, Judge Hannah L. Blumensteil of the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the Northern District of California transferred the
Chapter 11 case of Brugnara Properties to Judge Dennis Montali.

The Debtor estimated $10 million to $50 million in assets and
less than $10 million in debt.

The Debtor disclosed that Wells Fargo Home Mortgage is owed
$6.15 million on a first note secured by the Debtor's property,
and Saxe Mortgage Co. is owed $1.7 million on a second
note.  The deadline for filing claims was May 4, 2015.

The Debtor is represented by Erik G. Babcock, Esq., at Law
Office of Erik G. Babcock, in Oakland, California.



BRUGNARA PROPERTIES: Ch. 11 Case Ordered Dismissed
--------------------------------------------------
Judge Edward J. Emmons of the United States Bankruptcy Court for
the Northern District of California, San Francisco, dismissed
Brugnara Properties, VI's Chapter 11 case.

The Debtor previously asked the Court to dismiss its Chapter 11
Case.  Matthew D. Metzger, Esq., at Belvedere Legal, PC, in San
Mateo, California, told the Court that Katherine Brugnara, the
Debtor's Interim President, has identified a new lender that will
agree to refinance Saxe's secured junior lien and Ms. Brugnara
wished to consummate a refinancing agreement, provided the Court
agrees to dismiss the bankruptcy case.  Mr. Metzger said he was
instructed by Ms. Brugnara to file the motion to dismiss case as
the petition no longer serves any bankruptcy purpose.

Secured creditor Saxe Mortgage Company opposed the Motion to
Dismiss, asserting that the Chapter 11 case was filed to impede
Saxe from proceeding with foreclosure of the Debtor's sole asset,
the real property at 224 Sea Cliff Ave., in San Francisco,
California.  Having taken advantage of the automatic stay, and
having burdened the court and creditors, the Debtor sought to
dismiss, but demonstrated no cause for the dismissal, Saxe argued.
In a supplemental opposition, Saxe asserted that the Debtor never
paid anything to Saxe and as forth in its monthly operating
reports, the Debtor has no income and no way to make future
payments.

The Debtor, in response to Saxe, asserted that Saxe did receive 12
months of interest pre-payments on its junior loan at the time that
Saxe agreed to the loan agreement.  For the past 15 years, the real
property in San Francisco always has been a non-income producing
property; Saxe was well aware of this fact at the time it conducted
its due diligence and agreed to lend, the Debtor told the Court.
The Debtor said the Subject Property is a viable and greatly
appreciating asset as evidenced by the recent appraisal the Debtor.
Lastly, in the last 10 years, the Debtor has already paid back in
full two junior loans on the Subject Property, each worth
$5,000,000 behind the current first mortgage with Wells Fargo, the
Debtor said.

The U.S. Trustee also objected to the Motion to Dismiss, telling
the Court that the Debtor has failed to pay U.S. Trustee quarterly
fees and has failed to attend the meeting of creditors to testify
as to the veracity of the petition, schedules and other documents.
Moreover, the U.S. Trustee said the Debtor failed to attend the
U.S. Trustee's Initial Debtor Interview, and its operating reports
show no income and no business to reorganize.

In response to the U.S. Trustee, the Debtor explained that the
funds cannot be disbursed prior to the Court's entry of an order
dismissing the present case.  Immediately upon dismissal of the
case, the Debtor will use the loan proceeds to reinstate the loans
with Wells Fargo Bank, N.A.

In a separate order, Judge Montali appointed Katherine Brugnara,
the Interim President of the Debtor, as the responsible individual
and she shall be responsible for the duties and obligations of the
Debtor.

BUILDERS FIRSTSOURCE: Completes Acquisition of ProBuild
-------------------------------------------------------
Builders FirstSource, Inc., completed its acquisition of ProBuild
Holdings LLC, a professional building materials suppliers, for
approximately $1.63 billion, subject to certain adjustments.

Citigroup Global Markets Inc. and Deutsche Bank Securities Inc.
served as financial advisors to the Company in the ProBuild
Acquisition, joint book-running managers of the Company's offering
of Primary Shares and the Selling Stockholder's offering of
Secondary Shares, joint book-running manager of the Company's
previously announced offering of $700 million aggregate principal
amount of 10.75% Senior Notes due 2023, and lenders in the
Company's new $600 million senior secured term loan facility, of
which Deutsche Bank AG New York Branch serves as administrative
agent and collateral agent.

The combination of Builders FirstSource and ProBuild will create a
national professional dealer with 2014 combined revenues of
approximately $6.1 billion.  The combined company will leverage its
nationwide network to better serve its four critical customer
segments, including production builders, custom builders,
multi-family/commercial, and repair and remodel.  With over 430
locations, the new company will serve 74 of the top 100
metropolitan statistical areas across 40 states.

"The culmination of this acquisition marks a significant milestone
in our industry, creating a unique company with enhanced scale and
a national footprint.  By bringing together the extensive products
and services offerings of both Builders FirstSource and ProBuild,
we will further strengthen our long-standing customer
relationships," said Floyd Sherman, CEO of Builders FirstSource.
"This is an exciting day for our employees as we officially join
forces to establish a broader, more efficient platform of
manufacturing and distribution capabilities."

Paul S. Levy, Chairman of the Board of Builders FirstSource and
Founder of JLL Partners, said, "The combination of Builders
FirstSource and ProBuild creates an industry leader that is
well-positioned to take advantage of the continuing housing
recovery.  I could not be more proud to be associated with such an
outstanding management team and to have been a part of this
transformative transaction."

In conjunction with the closing of its acquisition of ProBuild, the
Company completed its previously announced public offering of
12,000,000 shares of its common stock at a price per share of
$12.80, including 8,000,000 shares sold by the Company and
4,000,000 shares sold by Warburg Pincus Private Equity IX, L.P. The
underwriters exercised their over-allotment option in connection
with the Equity Offering in full and purchased an additional
1,200,000 shares from the Company and 600,000 shares from the
Selling Stockholder.  Also in conjunction with the closing of its
acquisition of ProBuild, the Company successfully completed its
previously announced private offering of $700 million aggregate
principal amount of its 10.75% Senior Notes due 2023.

The Company used the net proceeds from the Equity Offering and the
Notes Offering, together with financing comprising a rollover of
the Company's $350 million existing Senior Secured Notes, new debt
issuance in the form of $295 million drawn under a new $800 million
ABL facility, and a new $600 million Term Loan B, to finance the
acquisition of ProBuild, to repay certain of its and ProBuild's
existing indebtedness and to pay related transaction fees and
expenses.  The Company did not receive any proceeds from the sale
of shares by the Selling Stockholder.

     e) provide a complete auction crew to handle computerized
accounting functions necessary to provide auction buyers with
invoices and the Debtors with a complete accounting of all assets
sold at the auction;

     f) sell the assets for cash or other immediately available
funds to the highest bidder(s) on an "AS IS," "WHERE IS" and "all
sales are final" basis and in accordance with the terms of the
agreement;

     g) charge and collect on behalf of the Debtors from all
purchasers any purchase price together with all applicable taxes in
connection therewith;

     h) deposit all collected gross proceeds into a separate client
trust account maintained by Hilco and remit such proceeds to the
Debtors by transferring them to the account within 15 days after

     i) submit an initial sales report to the Debtors within 14
days after the sale of the Assets and a final complete sales report
to the Debtors within 14 days after the end of the term of the
marketing agreement.

To market and facilitate the sale of the Assets, Hilco plans to
subcontract with Dixon Marine Services, a consulting firm that
provides specialized marine and environmental science consulting
services.  Hilco plans to engage Dixon in order to benefit from the
firm's industry related expertise and connections to potential
buyers of the assets, factors that I believe are critical to
maximizing the value realized for the assets.  As part of Dixon's
engagement, Hilco will have access to Dixon's customer lists and
Dixon will facilitate the negotiation of potential sales with their
customers.

Under the Fee Structure, Hilco will be entitled to charge and
retain for its own account an industry-standard buyer's premium of
16% for any of the Assets that are sold.  The Buyer's Premium is a
fee charged in addition to the sale price and is paid by the buyer
of the Asset(s).  Hilco will pay Dixon 25% of any Buyer's Premium
it receives from the sale of the Assets, while the Debtors will be
entitled to receive a portion of the collected Buyers' Premiums in
accordance with the following schedule:

                             Portion to   Net to
     Gross Proceeds           Company     Hilco
     --------------          ----------   ------
$0.00 to 2,000,000$              0%         16%
$2000,001 to $4,000,000          1%         15%
$4,000,001 to $6,000,000         2%         14%
$6,000,001 to $8,000,000         4%         12%
$8,000,001 to $10,000,000       7.5%         8.5%
$10,000,001 and over            2.5%        13.5%

In addition, Hilco is entitled to reimbursement by the Debtors for
all out-of-pocket expenses, in an amount not to exceed $77,900,
incurred by Hilco in connection with Hilco's performance of its
services.

Eric W. Kaup, general counsel and executive vice president of Hilco
Trading, LLC, the managing member of Hilco Industrial, LLC, assures
the Court that the firm is a "disinterested person" within the
meaning of Section 101(14) of the Bankruptcy Code.

CASELLA WASTE: Moody's Assigns B1 Rating on $15MM Revenue Bonds
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a B1 rating to the $15 million
Finance Authority of Maine (FAME) Solid Waste Disposal Revenue
Bonds which are guaranteed by Casella Waste Systems, Inc. All other
ratings are unaffected, including the B3 Corporate Family Rating
(CFR).  A portion of the bond proceeds will be used to repay
Casella's asset-backed revolver (ABL) for expenditures already made
with the remainder held as restricted cash until utilized for
qualifying expenditures over the next several quarters.  The rating
outlook is stable.

RATING RATIONALE

Casella's B3 CFR reflects elevated debt-to-EBITDA (6.6x for the LTM
ended March 31, 2015), weak EBIT-to-interest coverage (below 1x)
and modest scale with a regional focus.  Margins are improving but
are hindered by under-utilization of disposal assets.  Ongoing
operational improvement initiatives, including sourcing incremental
waste volumes to the company's Western New York and Pennsylvania
landfills, as well as heightened focus on collection route
efficiencies should continue to drive higher returns and cash flow.
In addition, the transition to a new pricing structure for the
recycling operations will boost margins.

Liquidity is adequate as denoted by the SGL-3 rating.  Casella's
modest cash position is supported by improving prospects for free
cash flow generation that are being driven by stronger margins and
capital expenditures as a percentage of revenues settling into the
8-10% range.  The company's ABL (unrated) provides borrowings up to
$190 million based on a borrowing base formula.  As of June 30,
2015, availability was $58.8 million after deducting revolver
borrowings and outstanding letters of credit.  Moody's expects
availability to steadily increase through 2015 and into 2016 with
the planned pay down from these bond proceeds as well as the
application of free cash flow to the outstanding revolver balance.
The ABL requires Casella to maintain a minimum EBITDA at all times.
In addition, if availability falls below a minimum threshold,
maximum first-lien leverage and minimum fixed charge coverage
covenants are then tested.

The stable outlook reflects Moody's expectations for revenue growth
in excess of 5% over the next 12 -- 18 months driven by stronger
pricing, modestly improving volumes led by a pick-up in
construction and demolition revenues and rising tipping fees as a
result of reduced landfill capacity in the Northeast US.  The
majority of expected free cash flow ($15 million range) for 2015 is
anticipated to be applied to debt reduction.

Meaningful and profitable expansion of the company's operating
footprint beyond New England and New York could lead to a ratings
upgrade.  Alternatively, debt-to-EBITDA near 5x, free cash
flow-to-debt in the mid-single digits and an EBITDA margin
approaching 25% would result in upward rating pressure.  A material
decline in revenues, free cash flow turning negative for an
extended period of time or a material erosion in the liquidity
position could lead to a downgrade.

The two-notch differential from the B3 CFR reflects the effective
priority and proportion of these bonds relative to the $385 million
of subordinated notes, which will absorb first loss in default.

Rating Assigned:

Senior Unsecured Solid Waste Disposal Revenue Bonds of B1 (LGD2)

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Environmental
Services and Waste Management Companies published in June 2014.

Headquartered in Rutland, Vermont, Casella is a Northeast US
regional, vertically-integrated solid waste management services
company.  Latest twelve month revenues as of June 30, 2015 were
approximately $535 million.



CATASYS INC: Closes Purchase Agreement with Crede CG
----------------------------------------------------
Catasys, Inc., entered into a securities purchase agreement with
Crede CG III, Ltd., 100% owned by Terren S. Peizer, chairman and
chief executive officer of the Company, pursuant to which the
Company exchanged the $3.35 million promissory note for a $3.56
million 12% Original Issue Discount Convertible Debenture due
Jan. 18, 2016, and five-year warrants to purchase an aggregate of
936,462 shares of the Company's common stock, par value $0.0001 per
share, each at an exercise price of $1.90 per share.  The closing
of the Purchase Agreement occurred on July 30, 2015.

The conversion price of the Bridge Notes and the exercise price of
the Warrants are each $1.90 per share, subject to adjustments,
including for issuances of common stock and common stock
equivalents below the then current conversion or exercise price, as
the case may be.  The Bridge Notes are unsecured, bear interest at
a rate of 12% per annum payable in cash or shares of Common Stock,
subject to certain conditions, at the Company's option, and are
subject to mandatory prepayment upon the consummation of certain
future financings.

The Investor will be entitled to receive liquidated damages in an
amount equal to the product of 300,000 times the weighted average
VWAP for the five Trading Days prior to the Offering Failure Date
if the Company has not consummated a public offering of at least $5
million in gross proceeds by Dec. 31, 2015.

The Investor is also entitled, until July 29, 2016, to participate
in certain future financings of the Company.

As a result of the issuance of the Bridge Note and Warrants, the
exercise price of the warrants to purchase an aggregate of 530,303
shares of common stock issued in the April 17, 2015, financing were
adjusted to $1.21 per share.

                         About Catasys Inc.

Based in Los Angeles, California, Hythiam, Inc., n/k/a Catasys,
Inc., is a healthcare services management company, providing
through its Catasys(R) subsidiary specialized behavioral health
management services for substance abuse to health plans.

Catasys reported a loss of $27.3 million on $2.03 million of
healthcare services revenues for the 12 months ended Dec. 31, 2014,
compared to a loss of $4.67 million on $754,000 of healthcare
services revenues for the 12 months ended Dec. 31, 2013.

As of March 31, 2015, the Company had $1.33 million in total
assets, $41.8 million in total liabilities and a $40.4 million
total stockholders' deficit.

Rose, Snyder & Jacobs LLP, in Encino, California, issued a "going
concern" qualification on the consolidated financial statements for
the year ended Dec. 31, 2014, citing that the Company has continued
to incur significant operating losses and negative cash flows from
operations during the year ended Dec. 31, 2014.  These conditions
raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as
a going concern.


CLINTONDALE COMMUNITY: Moody's Affirms Ba3 GOULT Debt Rating
------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has affirmed Clintondale Community
Schools, MI's Ba3 rating.  The outlook on the district remains
negative.  The Ba3 rating and negative outlook apply to $440,000 of
outstanding rated general obligation unlimited tax (GOULT) debt.
The district has a total of $14.1 million of GOULT debt, and $3.5
million of general obligation limited tax (GOLT) debt outstanding.

SUMMARY RATING RATIONALE

The Ba3 rating reflects the district's modestly-sized, suburban
Detroit (B2 positive) tax base, characterized by declining
valuation and below average socioeconomic characteristics.  Also
incorporated into the rating is the district's persistent but
gradually improving General Fund deficit, which Moody's expects
will continue to be challenged by state funding decisions and
fluctuating enrollment patterns.  Additionally factored is the
district's very high debt burden, as well as its exposure to
unfunded pension liabilities associated with its participation in a
statewide, cost-sharing plan.

OUTLOOK

The negative outlook is based on the district's severely pressured
financial position and historically declining student enrollment
trends.  While the district has made headway in recent years in
reducing its overall General Fund deficit, the district continues
to underperform relative to its Deficit Elimination Plan (DEP)
which it submits to the state annually for approval.

WHAT COULD MAKE THE RATING GO UP

   -- Sustained increases in student enrollment
   -- Elimination of the district's deficit General Fund position
   -- Moderation of the district's debt burden and unfunded
      pension liabilities

WHAT COULD MAKE THE RATING GO DOWN

   -- Material tax base and/or socioeconomic deterioration
   -- Larger than budgeted declines to student enrollment
   -- Inability to perform to DEP expectations
   -- Increases to the district's debt burden and/or pension
      liabilities

OBLIGOR PROFILE

Clintondale Community Schools encompasses an area of 3.9 square
miles within the Charter Township of Clinton in Macomb County,
approximately 20 miles north of Detroit.

LEGAL SECURITY

The district's outstanding rated bonds are secured by the pledge
and authority to levy a dedicated, voter-approved property tax
levy, unlimited as to both rate and amount, to pay debt service.

USE OF PROCEEDS

Not applicable.

PRINCIPAL METHODOLOGY

The principal methodology used in this rating was US Local
Government General Obligation Debt published in January 2014.

                        About Colt Defense

Colt Defense LLC is one of the world's oldest and most iconic
designers, developers, and manufacturers of firearms for military,
law enforcement, personal defense, and recreational purposes and
was founded over 175 years ago by Samuel Colt, who patented the
first commercial successful revolving cylinder firearm in 1836 and
began supplying U.S. and international military customers with
firearms in 1847.  Colt is incorporated in Delaware and
headquartered in West Hartford, Connecticut.

In 1992, Colt Manufacturing Company, then the principal operating
subsidiary, filed chapter 11 petitions in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court
for the District of Connecticut.  An investment by Zilkha & Co.
allowed CMC to confirm a chapter 11 plan and emerge from Bankruptcy
in 1994.

Sometime after 1994, majority ownership of the Company transitioned
from Zilkha & Co. to Sciens Capital Management.

On June 12, 2015, Colt's exchange offer, consent solicitation and
solicitation of acceptances of a prepackaged plan of
reorganization, dated April 14, 2015, as supplemented, with respect
to its $250 million in 8.75% Senior Notes due 2017 expired. The
conditions to the exchange offer, the consent solicitation and the
prepackaged plan of reorganization were not satisfied, and those
conditions were not waived by Colt.  Colt's restructuring support
agreement with Marblegate Special Opportunities Master Fund, L.P.
and Morgan Stanley Senior Funding, Inc., the Company's senior
secured term loan lenders, requires it to file for Chapter 11
bankruptcy.

Accordingly, Colt Holding Company LLC and nine affiliates,
including Colt Defense LLC, on June 14, 2015, filed voluntary
petitions (Bankr. D. Del. Lead Case No. 15-11296) for relief under
Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code to pursue a sale of the assets as
a going concern.  Colt Defense estimated $100 million to $500
million in assets and debt.

On June 16, 2015, the Court directed the joined administration of
the assets.

The Debtors tapped Richards, Layton & Finger, P.A., and O'Melveny &

claims and noticing agent.  Perella Weinberg Partners L.P. is
acting as financial advisor of the Company, and Mackinac Partners

was founded over 175 years ago by Samuel Colt, who patented the
first commercial successful revolving cylinder firearm in 1836 and
began supplying U.S. and international military customers with
firearms in 1847.  Colt is incorporated in Delaware and
headquartered in West Hartford, Connecticut.

In 1992, Colt Manufacturing Company, then the principal operating
subsidiary, filed chapter 11 petitions in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court
for the District of Connecticut.  An investment by Zilkha & Co.
allowed CMC to confirm a chapter 11 plan and emerge from bankruptcy
in 1994.

Sometime after 1994, majority ownership of the Company transitioned
from Zilkha & Co. to Sciens Capital Management.

On June 14, 2015, Colt Holding Company LLC and 9 affiliates,
including Colt Defense LLC, filed voluntary petitions for relief
under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code to pursue a
sale of the assets as a going concern.  The cases are pending
joint administration under Case No. 15-11296 (Bankr. D. Del.).

Colt Defense estimated $100 million to $500 million in assets and
debt.

The Debtors tapped Richards, Layton & Finger, P.A., and O'Melveny &
Myers LLP, as attorneys, and Kurtzman Carson Consultants LLC as
claims and noticing agent.


COMMUNITY HEALTH: Moody's Retains B1 CFR on Plans to Spin Off
-------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service commented that the announcement that
Community Health Systems, Inc. plans to spin off a group of
hospitals and other businesses into a new, publicly traded company
is credit positive.  The transaction will let Community focus on
continued development of regional provider networks in faster
growing urban markets.  The transaction will also likely result in
material debt repayment.  However, leverage will not significantly
decline given the amount of EBITDA that will be spun off.
Therefore, there is no change to Community's ratings, including the
B1 Corporate Family Rating at CHS/Community Health Systems, Inc.,
or the stable outlook.

CHS/Community Health Services, Inc., headquartered in Franklin, TN,
is an operator of general acute care hospitals in non-urban and
mid-sized markets throughout the US.  In addition, through its
subsidiary, Quorum Health Resources, LLC, Community provides
management and consulting services to non-affiliated general acute
care hospitals throughout the country.  Community recognized
approximately $19.5 billion in revenue for the twelve months ended
June 30, 2015.

Corinthian Colleges, Inc., Pegasus Education, Inc., and 23

The Debtor filed with the Court a first amended and modified

the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors, the Student

Distribution of the Debtors' assets already liquidated or to be

CORINTHIAN COLLEGES: Student Creditors Panel Withdraws Stay Bid
---------------------------------------------------------------
The Official Committee of Student Creditors in the Chapter 11 cases
of Corinthian Colleges, Inc., et al., notified the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the District of Delaware that it has withdrawn its motion
for order applying the automatic stay, pursuant to the letter
agreement dated July 9, 2015.

According to the Committee, the application or extension of the
automatic stay as necessary to stay enforcement and collection of
alleged student loan debt is essential to facilitating a meaningful
Chapter 11 process in these cases and the circumstances presented
justify extension of the automatic stay.  The motion seeks to stop
the Department of Education from coming after students for alleged
loans that were not legally issued or are not legally binding
because of the Debtors' misconduct.

Objecting to the Committee's request, the United States claims in
its objection -- a copy of which is available for free at
http://is.gd/ZCr8HX-- that for several reasons, the Department of
Education should not be enjoined from participating in any
proceeding concerning the loans -- including the Department of
Education's ongoing administrative proceedings to determine whether
the students should be relieved from repaying this debt.  Any
action to collect, assess or adjust the students' loan debt to the
United States would not violate the automatic stay of the U.S.
Bankruptcy Code because it would not address or affect an
obligation or asset of any of the Debtors.  The requested stay,
according to the United States, should be denied because no unity
of interest between students and the Debtors exists, and the
Debtors do not appear to need the stay to reorganize.

The Debtors also objected to the Committee's proposal.  The
Committee, the Debtors claim, relies upon the unsupported
allegations while ignoring the evidence and positive outcomes
generated by the Debtors' schools and without any reference to the
responsive documents filed by the Debtors in the proceedings.  A

COUNTRY STONE: First Star Balks at Deal on Overbid Carve Out
------------------------------------------------------------
Todd Hammerstrom, executive vice president, on behalf of creditor
First Star Logistics, LLC, objected to the motion to approve
stipulation among OLD CSH, Inc. formerly known as Country Stone
Holdings Inc., et al., First Midwest Bank, and the Official
Unsecured Creditors Committee regarding the "overbid carve out."

In 2014, First Star rendered transportation and trucking services
for creditor in the amount of $22,475 for which the Debtor never
paid to First Star.

First Star asserts that it has suffered financial hardship as a
result of not receiving payment from the Debtors as a result of the
Debtors' bankruptcy filing.

                         The Stipulation

The Debtors sought approval to of a asset purchase agreement
between the Debtors and Quikrete Holdings, Inc., pursuant to which,
among other things, Quikrete would purchase substantially all of
the Debtors' assets.  The purchase price under the Quikrete APA
consisted of two components: $19,517,527 for the Debtors' fixed
assets and real estate, plus a price derived by a particular
formula for the Debtors' inventory.

Per the formula, the inventory purchase price was $5,144,413.  The
total Quikrete bid, therefore, was $24,661,940.  The figure is far
from certain as Quikrete was not the successful purchaser and never
closed.

The parties related that per the final DIP order, among other
things, First Midwest is required to carve out from its liens and
claim the overbid carve out.

The Debtors and First Midwest had disagreed on how to calculate the
overbid carve out due to the inventory differential.  First Midwest
asserted that the formula controls the calculation of the inventory
purchase price and should be used to determine the overbid carve
out.  The Debtors asserted that the stalking horse bid included
representations and warranties regarding their inventory and
required a pre-closing physical inventory inspection that would
have resulted in the same complaints brought by the purchasers
regarding the quantity and quality of the inventory, such that
Quikrete would have demanded reduction in the inventory
purchase price similar to the purchaser inventory price in exchange
for closing the sale.

In the interest of resolving the dispute and to avoid the costs and
delays of litigation regarding the overbid carve out, the parties
have agreed to evenly split the difference, resulting in a overbid
carve out of $402,024 and entered into the stipulation regarding
the same.

Holdings, Inc., for $23 million in cash plus the assumption of
liabilities, subject to higher and better offers.  The bankruptcy
cases are assigned to Judge Thomas L. Perkins.

The Debtors have tapped Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP as counsel;
Silverman Consulting to provide the services of Steven Nerger as
CRO and Michael Compton as cash and restructuring manager; and
Epiq Bankruptcy Solutions, LLC as claims, noticing and balloting
agent.

The Court authorized the corporate name change from Country Stone
Holdings, Inc., to Old CSH, Inc.

Illinois, has appointed five creditors to serve in the official
unsecured creditors committee in the Debtors' cases.



COYOTE LOGISTICS: Moody's Puts B2 CFR Under Review for Upgrade
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service placed the ratings of Coyote Logistics,
LLC under review for possible upgrade, including its B2 Corporate
Family Rating (CFR), B2-PD Probability of Default Rating, and B2
instrument rating for its $360 million Term Loan B (amount at
initial rating in March 2015).  The review follows the July 31st
announcement that United Parcel Service, Inc (Aa3 negative) reached
an agreement to acquire Coyote for $1.8 billion from Coyote's
financial sponsor, Warburg Pincus.  UPS has indicated that it plans
on funding the acquisition with a mix of cash and new debt, and
that the transaction will close within 30 days.  The outcome of the
review will be determined by the degree of direct or indirect
support that UPS might provide to Coyote and its rated debt.
Should Coyote's $360 million Term Loan B be retired as a result of
the transaction, Moody's would withdraw the company's ratings.

On Review for Upgrade:

Issuer: Coyote Logistics, LLC

  Probability of Default Rating, Placed on Review for Upgrade,
   currently B2-PD
  Corporate Family Rating, Placed on Review for Upgrade, currently

   B2
  Senior Secured Bank Credit Facility (Local Currency), Placed on
   Review for Upgrade, currently B2, LGD3

Outlook Actions:

Issuer: Coyote Logistics, LLC

  Outlook, Changed To Rating Under Review From Stable

RATINGS RATIONALE

The B2 CFR reflects Coyote's modest scale in terms of net revenue
as well as its limited operating history at its current size.  As
well, the rating considers a treasury policy that is consistent
with private equity ownership which contemplates additional
leverage in order to fund distributions.  The B2 rating also
considers the company's strong position within the trucking and
logistics service provider industry (Coyote is one of the top three
truck brokers in the US), its blue-chip customer base, and end
market diversification across a number of sectors characterized by
stable demand.  The CFR incorporates Moody's expectation that the
company's limited capital requirements coupled with improving
operating cash flow generation will support forward deleveraging
such that Moody's-adjusted leverage approaches 5.0x by the end of
2015.

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

Headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, Coyote Logistics, LLC is a
leading provider of trucking and logistics services within the
third-party logistics industry.  Moody's anticipates that Coyote
will generate adjusted net revenues in excess of $265 million in
2015.

DEB STORES: Exclusive Plan Filing Period Extended to Dec. 1
-----------------------------------------------------------
Judge Kevin Gross of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of
Delaware issued an order ruling that no party, other than Deb
Stores Holdings LLC, et al., may file any plan of reorganization
during the period from August 4, 2015, through and including
December 1, 2015.

Judge Gross also held that no party, other than the Debtors, may
solicit votes to accept a proposed plan of reorganization filed
with the Court from Aug. 4 through and including Jan. 26, 2016.

Peter J. Keane, Esq., at Pachulski Stang Ziehl & Jones LLP, in
Wilmington, Delaware, in support of the extension request, said
that the Debtors are not seeking an extension of time to pressure
creditors.  The Debtors, he continued, merely require additional

(Case No. 14-12676).  The cases are assigned to Judge Mary F.
Walrath.

Carl D. Neff at Delaware Bankruptcy Litigation reported that by

KPMG LLP, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, issued a "going concern"
qualification on the consolidated financial statements for the year
ended Dec. 31, 2014, citing that the Company's credit facility
expires on Sept. 30, 2015, and at present no agreement has been
reached to refinance the debt, which raises substantial doubt about
the Company's ability to continue as a going concern.


EMI PUBLISHING: Moody's Rates Proposed Sr. Sec. Facilities Ba3
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has assigned a Ba3 rating to MTL
Publishing LLC's (d/b/a EMI Music Publishing in the US) ("EMI MP"
or the "company") proposed senior secured first-lien credit
facilities (comprised of a $50 million revolving credit facility
and $1.12 billion senior secured term loan B).  In connection with
this rating action, Moody's affirmed EMI MP's B1 Corporate Family
Rating (CFR) and B1-PD Probability of Default Rating (PDR).  The
rating outlook is stable.

Proceeds plus existing cash balances will refinance the existing
credit facilities (consisting of an undrawn $75 million revolver
due 2017 and $978.4 million outstanding term loan B due 2018),
pre-fund an approximate $80 million repayment of the 12.5% senior
unsecured notes due 2020 (unrated) and pay a $100 million
distribution to shareholders ($50 million of which will be funded
by EMI MP's balance sheet cash).  Moody's views the refinancing
transaction favorably due to the extension of the debt maturity
structure and comparatively lower rate on the expected refinanced
senior notes, which will reduce cash interest expense by $10-15
million per annum.  Moody's expects the new $50 million revolving
credit facility (RCF) to be undrawn at closing.

Ratings Assigned:

Issuers: MTL Publishing LLC and EMI Group North American Holdings,
Inc.

  $50 Million Senior Secured Revolving Credit Facility due 2020 –

   Ba3 (LGD-3)

Issuer: EMI Group North American Holdings, Inc.

  $1.12 Billion Senior Secured First-Lien Term Loan B due 2022 –

   Ba3 (LGD-3)

Ratings Affirmed:

Issuer: MTL Publishing LLC (d/b/a EMI Music Publishing)

  Corporate Family Rating -- B1
  Probability of Default Rating -- B1-PD

The assigned ratings are subject to review of final documentation
and no material change in the terms and conditions of the
transaction as advised to Moody's.  Moody's will withdraw the Ba3
ratings on the existing credit facilities upon full repayment.

RATINGS RATIONALE

Although the refinancing will increase absolute debt levels and
elevate Moody's adjusted pro forma total debt to EBITDA leverage to
5.6x from 5.1x as of fiscal 2015 (ended March 31, 2015), EMI MP has
enough capacity at the B1 rating level to absorb this incremental
debt.  Moody's expects adjusted leverage will increase in fiscal
2016 due to the continued foreign exchange impact from a
strengthening US dollar versus other currencies (particularly the
euro and British pound sterling) as well as weakening in physical
mechanical revenue offset by relatively stable performance and
synchronization revenue.  Despite this, we project leverage will
stay in a range of 5x-6.25x over the rating horizon.

EMI MP's B1 CFR embeds the company's high pro forma leverage as
well as uncertainties related to the fundamental decline in revenue
that the music publishing industry has experienced over the past
few years.  As a result of the high debt balance, Moody's expect
free cash flow to debt ratios to remain in the single digits.
Notwithstanding weak financial metrics compared to its B1-rated
peers, Moody's believes EMI MP's business model can accommodate a
more leveraged capital structure due to the strong revenue
visibility from long-term royalty contracts, attractive music
catalog with good monetization characteristics and low overhead
costs that facilitate relatively high EBITDA margins for the rating
category.  In addition, we project the company will be able to
improve debt to EBITDA leverage by applying positive free cash flow
to debt reduction, which should result in free cash flow to
adjusted debt near 7% over the rating horizon.  Prior to this new
refinancing and after the two-year restructuring period officially
concluded in June 2014, the company had voluntarily repaid a total
of $102 million of term loan borrowings.  Management has committed
to a long-term leverage target of 4.0x total debt to EBITDA.

The rating is supported by the company's leading global position in
music publishing and its strategic importance to Sony Corporation
(Ba1 positive) via its joint venture, Sony/ATV. Moody's believes
EMI MP's vast library of valuable musical copyrights, recurring
annuity-like revenue streams, and largely variable expense
structure should maintain EBITDA margins above 35% under most
scenarios.  Almost all corporate overhead and fixed operating
expenses have been replaced with a variable 15% administration fee
paid to Sony/ATV based on EMI MP's gross revenue minus royalties.
Moody's notes that in addition to the $803 million of equity
provided primarily by Sony America and Mubadala, the $403 million
of unsecured notes (unrated) are held by minority shareholders.  At
transaction close, EMI MP is expected to maintain good liquidity
with around $170 million of cash and full availability on its $50
million RCF.

Rating Outlook

The stable rating outlook reflects our view that growth in
performance revenue and other segments of EMI MP (i.e.,
synchronization) will offset secular declines in physical/digital
mechanical revenue, resulting in Moody's adjusted debt to EBITDA
sustained below 6.25x over the rating horizon.  Moody's believes
music publishing revenue, particularly for the broadcasting related
performance segment, generally tracks GDP and advertising demand.
The outlook incorporates low-single digit growth in US advertising
demand and continued recovery in Western Europe.  Moody's expects
EMI MP will continue to apply free cash flow to reduce the term
loan balance and achieve management's target leverage.  The outlook
also incorporates Moody's expectation that music entertainment will
continue to be of strategic importance to Sony Corporation, with
Sony/ATV and EMI MP remaining an integral piece of this strategy.

What Could Change the Rating -- UP

Ratings could be upgraded if Moody's believes overall mechanical
revenue has stabilized, cash balances are maintained at forecasted
levels, and Moody's adjusted debt to EBITDA is sustained
comfortably below 4.75x with free cash flow to adjusted debt of at
least 6%.  In addition, management would need to demonstrate a
commitment to balance debtholder returns with those of its
shareholders and exhibit operating performance and financial
policies consistent with a higher rating.

What Could Change the Rating -- DOWN

Ratings could be downgraded if debt-financed copyright additions
and acquisitions, or competitive pressures result in the company's
debt-to-EBITDA ratios being sustained above 6.25x (Moody's
adjusted), or if shareholder-friendly actions result in strained
liquidity or free cash flow to adjusted debt sustained below 1%.

Headquartered in New York, NY, EMI Music Publishing is the trade
name for MTL Publishing LLC, (d/b/a EMI Music Publishing in the US
and co-issuer of the revolving credit facility), while EMI Group
North American Holdings, Inc., a US subsidiary of EMI Music
Publishing Group International BV in the UK, is the term loan
issuer.  As a standalone music publisher, EMI MP is the second
largest in the world, with a diverse catalog of approximately 2.2
million music copyrights.  EMI MP has won Billboard Magazine's
Publisher of the Year for 12 consecutive years (with Billboard's
2014 rankings based on EMI MP and Sony/ATV on a combined basis) and
holds rights to one thousand #1 rated Anglo-American song hits over
the last 85 years.  In June 2012, an investor group led by Sony
Corporation of America ("Sony America") acquired EMI Group's music
publishing business from Citigroup for approximately $2.2 billion.
The majority equity ownership is held by Sony and Mubadala
Development Company PJSC ("Mubadala"), an investment company owned
by the Abu Dhabi government, with minority shareholders comprising
Jynwel Capital and Blackstone/GSO, among others.  EMI MP generated
revenue of $604 million in fiscal year ended March 31, 2015.



ENVISION HEALTHCARE: Moody's Affirms B1 CFR, Outlook Stable
-----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has affirmed Envision Healthcare
Corporation's B1 Corporate Family Rating and B1-PD Probability of
Default Rating, following the company's announcement that it
entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Rural/Metro
Corporation for $620 million.  In addition, Moody's affirmed the
Ba3 senior secured term loan rating and B3 senior unsecured notes
rating.  Concurrently with the rating affirmation, Moody's has
changed Envision's rating outlook to stable from positive.  The
Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating of SGL-1 is affirmed.

Rural/Metro is a provider of emergency and non-emergency ambulance
transportation, as well as specialty fire protection services with
operations in 21 states and nearly 700 communities.  Rural/Metro is
expected to generate about $600 million in revenues for fiscal
2015.

The change in the rating outlook to stable reflects both the large
size of the Rural/Metro acquisition and the incremental debt
required to effect the transaction, including the almost $500
million in acquisitions completed in 1st quarter of 2015.  Moody's
estimates that pro forma debt to EBITDA could rise to 4.3 times,
for the LTM ended June 30, 2015, if the acquisition is fully debt
funded.  Moody's anticipates that debt reduction will be limited
over the next twelve months and that the company will be delayed in
achieving Moody's previously expected debt to EBITDA below 4 times.
Furthermore, Moody's has concerns regarding potential integration
risks, given Rural/Metro's recent operating and financial
difficulties.  Moody's also expects that Envision will remain
aggressive in its acquisition strategy.  It should also be noted
that if the transaction is funded with secured debt, the rating on
the company's existing term loan would likely be downgraded to B1
from Ba3.

Following is a summary of Moody's rating actions.

Ratings affirmed:

Corporate Family Rating at B1
Probability of Default Rating at B1-PD
Senior secured term loan due 2018 at Ba3 (LGD 3)
Senior unsecured notes due 2022 at B3 (LGD 5)
Speculative Grade Liquidity rating at SGL-1

RATING RATIONALE

The B1 Corporate Family Rating reflects Envision's solid credit
metrics and Moody's expectation that debt to EBITDA will remain in
the low 4 times range as strong free cash flow is used to fund
smaller acquisitions.  The rating also benefits from Envision's
considerable scale and geographic diversification in its two
primary segments -- physician staffing and medical transport --
which are otherwise very fragmented among other providers.  The
rating reflects Moody' concerns with the high level of government
reimbursement and the company's aggressive acquisition strategy.
However, Moody's expects transactions to be funded in a manner that
maintains solid credit metrics.

The stable outlook reflects Moody's expectation that the company
will continue to benefit from both organic expansion of operations
as well as small tuck-in acquisitions.  The outlook also reflects
Moody's anticipation that the company will remain disciplined in
its acquisition strategy with respect to leverage and its expansion
into newer service areas.

The rating could be upgraded if the company experiences continued
favorable growth in both revenues and EBITDA, which result in debt
to EBITDA sustained below 4.0 times.  Furthermore, an upgrade would
be contingent upon Envision experiencing minimal disruption with
the integration of Rural/Metro, while also maintaining a
conservative financial policy.

If the company pursues additional debt-financed acquisitions or
shareholder initiatives, such that debt to EBITDA increases above
5.0 times, on a sustained basis, the rating could be downgraded. In
addition, a deterioration in the company's liquidity profile and/or
materially negative developments in the reimbursement environment
could result in a downgrade.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Business and
Consumer Service Industry published in December 2014.  Other
methodologies used include Loss Given Default for Speculative-Grade
Non-Financial Companies in the U.S., Canada and EMEA published in
June 2009.

Envision Healthcare Corporation headquartered in Greenwood Village,
CO, is a leading provider of emergency medical services in the U.S.
Envision operates through three business segments: EmCare is the
company's emergency department and hospital physician outsourcing
segment, AMR is a leading provider of medical transport in the
U.S., and Evolution Health is an emerging provider of comprehensive
physician-led post-hospital management solutions.  Envision is
listed on the New York Stock Exchange.  For the LTM period ending
June 30, 2015, the company reported revenues of $4.6 billion.



EQUINOX HOLDINGS: Moody's Affirms B2 CFR on SoulCycle's IPO
-----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service said the B2 CFR of Equinox Holdings, Inc.
remain unchanged following SoulCycle Inc.'s recent IPO filing, as
the current ratings reflect the company's expected performance
exclusive of SoulCycle and other unrestricted subsidiaries.  Upon
completion of the proposed offering, Equinox will no longer have
any ownership interest in SoulCycle.  SoulCycle intends to use
proceeds to repay a portion of its outstanding debt, for capex and
general corporate purposes, and to pay a tax-related distribution
to Equinox.


FOUR OAKS: Announces Record Earnings of $17.5 Million for Q2
------------------------------------------------------------
Four Oaks Fincorp, Inc., the holding company for Four Oaks Bank &
Trust Company, announced the results for the second quarter and six
months ended June 30, 2015.  The Company reported net income of
$17.5 million and $18.5 million, respectively, for the second
quarter and six months ended June 30, 2015, compared to net income
of $2.4 million and $3.8 million for the same periods in 2014.

During the second quarter of 2015, the Company determined that it
is more likely than not that sufficient taxable income will be
generated to realize a significant portion of its deferred tax
assets.  This conclusion, and partial release of the valuation
allowance, was based upon a number of factors including continued
improvement in quarterly earnings, forecasted future profitability,
improved asset quality and the execution of the Asset Resolution
Plan.  As a result, the Company recognized a $16.5 million income
tax benefit which positively impacted earnings and increased
capital for the Bank and the Company.

In addition to the partial reversal of the valuation allowance, the
Company continues to improve performance and reported pre-tax
earnings of $914,000 and $1.9 million, respectively, for the second
quarter and six months ended June 30, 2015.  Asset quality
continues to improve with classified assets to capital ratio
declining to 17.1% as of June 30, 2015, compared to 23.9% at
Dec. 31, 2014, and 65.0% at June 30, 2014.  The Bank remains well
capitalized at June 30, 2015 and reports a leverage ratio of 9.5%,
common equity Tier 1 and Tier 1 risk based capital of 14.0%, and
total risk based capital of 15.2%.  At Dec. 31, 2014, the Bank had
a leverage ratio of 7.2%, common equity Tier 1 capital and Tier 1
risk based capital of 13.5%, and total risk based capital of
14.7%.

Net Interest Income and Net Interest Margin:

Net interest margin annualized for the three and six months ended
June 30, 2015, was 3.3% and 3.2% compared to 2.7% for these same
periods in 2014.  Net interest income totaled $5.6 million and
$11.4 million for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2015,
respectively, as compared to $5.2 million and $10.4 million for the
same periods in 2014.  Cost of funds continues to improve as
interest expense declined to $1.7 million and $3.4 million for the
quarter and six months ended June 30, 2015, respectively, as
compared to $2 million and $4.1 million for the same periods in
2014.  The increased net interest income stems primarily from
increased investment income, declining interest expense on
deposits, and lower expense on long term borrowings that resulted
from the balance sheet strategies executed by the Company in the
fourth quarter of 2014.

Non-Interest Income:

Non-interest income was $1.7 million and $3.2 million for the
quarter and six months ended June 30, 2015, respectively, as
compared to $3.4 million and $5.5 million for these same periods in
2014.  The comparative declines in non-interest income continue to
be primarily from lower income received through ACH third party
payment processor (TPPP) indemnifications as the Company has
substantially exited this line of business as of June 30, 2015.
During the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2015, other
non-interest income included indemnification income of $164,000 and
$343,000, respectively, compared to $1.7 million and $2.3 million
during the second quarter and six months ended
June 30, 2014.

Non-Interest Expense:

Non-interest expense totaled $6.4 million and $12.7 million for the
quarter and six months ended June 30, 2015, respectively, as
compared to $6.2 million and $12.1 million for the same periods in
2014.  These increases resulted primarily from increases in
compensation-related expenses as the Company added additional
personnel and implemented new performance based compensation plans
in 2015.  Other operating expenses increased for both periods
reflecting continued investment in the Company's technology
platform, along with the noted investment in its employees, both of
which the Company believes will allow the Company to build a
foundation for future growth.  These increased expenses were offset
by declines in collection and foreclosure related expenses and FDIC
insurance due to improvements in asset quality and an overall
improved financial condition.

Balance Sheet:

Total assets were $721.9 million at June 30, 2015, compared to
$820.8 million at Dec. 31, 2014, a decline of $98.9 million related
nearly entirely to the exit of the ACH TPPP business line, offset
by the reversal of the valuation allowance, which was a $16.5
million increase to total assets.  Cash, cash equivalents, and
investments were $219.8 million at June 30, 2015, compared to
$336.9 million at Dec. 31, 2014, a decrease of $117.1 million
related to the above mentioned business line exit.  Outstanding
gross loans increased to $454.6 million at June 30, 2015, compared
to $452.3 million at Dec. 31, 2014, as solid loan production was
offset by loan pay downs and maturities. Total liabilities were
$663.1 million at June 30, 2015 compared to $780.1 million at
Dec. 31, 2014, a decline of $117 million primarily due to the ACH
TPPP business line exit.

Total shareholders' equity increased $18.1 million to $58.8 million
at June 30, 2015, compared to $40.7 million at Dec. 31, 2014.  This
increase resulted primarily from the increased net income due to
improved operating performance and the reversal of the $16.5
million valuation allowance against the Company’s deferred tax
assets.

Asset Quality:

Nonperforming loans totaled $8.2 million at June 30, 2015, a
decrease of $1.9 million compared to $10.1 million at Dec. 31,
2014.  Foreclosed assets totaled $2.7 million at June 30, 2015,
compared to $3.8 million at Dec. 31, 2014, a reduction of $1.1
million.  Total nonperforming assets were $10.9 million or 1.6% of
total assets at June 30, 2015, as compared to $13.9 million or 1.7%
of total assets at Dec. 31, 2014.  The continued declines in
nonperforming asset ratios are due to ongoing efforts by the
Company to execute the Company's previously disclosed asset
resolution plan and reduced additions to nonperforming assets.  The
allowance for loan and lease losses increased slightly to $9.8
million as of June 30, 2015, compared to $9.4 million as of
Dec. 31, 2014, due to net recoveries of $434,000 during the first
half of the year.  The allowance for loan and lease losses as a
percentage of gross loans increased slightly to 2.2% at June 30,
2015, up from 2.1% at Dec. 31, 2014.

President and Chief Executive Officer David H. Rupp stated, "This
has been an important quarter for our Company.  The reversal of a
significant portion of the valuation allowance reflects the ongoing
improvements across our business, balanced with conservatism and an
eye to the future.  Lending, deposit gathering and operating
earnings continued at a solid pace and we were able to complete the
bulk of our technology conversion during the first half of this
year.  We remain thankful for the support of our customers, our
communities and our fine team members as we focus on community
banking and its important role in the economy."

FRESH PRODUCE: Has Until Aug. 15 to Decide on 10 Leases
-------------------------------------------------------
Judge Michael E. Romero of the United States Bankruptcy Court for
the District of Colorado, at the behest of Fresh Produce Holdings,
LLC, et al., extended through and including Aug. 15, 2015, the time
for the Debtors to assume or reject the leases for 10 stores in
various locations.

On May 22, 2015, the Court entered an order permitting Tiger
Capital Group, LLC, to conduct store-closing sales at certain of
the Debtors' lease locations through August 15, 2015.  The Debtors
sought a brief extension of the deadline imposed by Section
365(d)(4)(A) of the Bankruptcy Code through August 16 to conclude
the store closing sales in accordance with the Court's May 22
Order, at which time they will be deemed rejected.

The Debtors explained that together with the Purchaser, they need
time to liquidate the inventory at those locations subject to the
Leases.  Once the Purchaser concludes the store closing sales on
August 15, 2015, the Debtors will have completed their obligations
under the Court's Store Closing Order.  The Debtors have determined
in their business judgment that continuing their performance under
the Leases past August 15 would be burdensome for the estate.

Judge Romero's Order provides that the Leases will be deemed
rejected pursuant to Section 365 effective August 16, 2015.

GRANITE DELLS: Liquidating Agent Asks Court to Close Ch. 11 Case
----------------------------------------------------------------
Arizona Eco Development LLC, as liquidating agent and assignee of
dissolved debtor Granite Dells Ranch Holdings, LLC, asks the United
States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Arizona to close the
Chapter 11 case and grant a final decree.

As of July 29, 2015, GDRH, by and through AED and the Liquidation
Board, has completed all obligations under the Plan, and GDRH has
no further distributions to make under the Plan.

Donald L. Gaffney, Esq., at Snell & Wilmer L.L.P., in Phoenix,
Arizona, asserts that a final decree is appropriate because (1) the
Confirmation Order is final; (2) all Estate assets have been
transferred pursuant to the Plan; (3) GDRH has been dissolved; (4)
all Claims litigation has been fully and finally resolved; (5)
GDRH's Estate Causes of Action against the Cavan Group have been
settled; (6) all distributions under the Plan have been made; and
(7) all motions, contested matters and adversary proceedings in the
Bankruptcy Case have been resolved.  Leaving the Bankruptcy Case
open would needlessly increase administrative expenses, Mr. Gaffney
further asserts.

                   About Granite Dells Ranch Holdings

Scottsdale, Arizona-based Granite Dells Ranch Holdings LLC filed a
bare-bones Chapter 11 petition (Bankr. D. Ariz. Case No. 12-04962)
in Phoenix on March 13, 2012.  Judge Redfield T. Baum PCT Sr.
oversees the case.  The Debtor is represented by Alan A. Meda,
Esq., at Stinson Morrison Hecker LLP.  The Debtor disclosed
$2.22 million in assets and $157 million in liabilities as of the
Chapter 11 filing.

Cavan Management Services, LLC is the Debtor's manager.  David
Cavan, member of the firm, signed the Chapter 11 petition.

Arizona ECO Development LLC, which acquired a $83.2 million 2006
loan by the Debtor, is represented by Snell & Wilmer L.L.P.  The
resolution authorizing the Debtor's bankruptcy filing says the
Company is commencing legal actions against Stuart Swanson, AED,
and related entities relating to the purchase by Mr. Swanson of a
promissory note payable by the Company to the parties that sold a
certain property to the Company.  According to Law 360, AED sued
Granite Dells on March 6 asking the Arizona court to appoint a
receiver.  Arizona ECO is foreclosing on a secured loan backed by
15,000 acres of Arizona land.

The United States Trustee said that an official committee has not
been appointed in the bankruptcy case of Granite Dells because an
insufficient number of unsecured creditors have expressed interest
in serving on a committee.


GT ADVANCED: Court OKs Three-Month Exclusivity Extension
--------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Henry J. Boroff of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of New Hampshire extended GT Advanced Technologies Inc.,
et al.'s exclusive periods to file a chapter 11 plan until Aug. 31,
2015, and solicit acceptances for that plan until Oct. 30, 2015.

The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors, as well as other
parties, filed an objection to the Debtors' second motion for
exclusivity extensions.  The Committee, in a limited objection,
said that it is concerned about the Debtors' lack of meaningful
progress towards an exit strategy from these cases.

The Committee's objection was later resolved.  The Debtors on July
19 informed the Court that after extensive negotiations, the
Debtors and the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors had
agreed to a three-month extension of the Debtors' exclusive filing
and solicitation periods to and including Aug. 31, and Oct. 30,
respectively.

The Debtors in their second exclusivity motion had asked the Court
to extend their exclusive periods (a) to file a plan until Sept.
30, and (b) to solicit acceptances for that plan until Nov. 30.

In response to the objection of the 0.1682% Shareholders, the
Debtors told the Court that the 0.1682% Shareholders' request was
totally inappropriate.  The 0.1682% Shareholders had requested that
the Court direct the Debtors to include the Ad Hoc Group of Equity
Interest Holders in plan discussions.  To be clear, the 0.1682%
Shareholders hold less than a single percent of the Debtors' equity
shares and, in fact, bought 85% of their paltry position after the
Petition Date.

Party-in-interest PC Connection Sales Corp., being the holder of a
503(b)(9) claim and other claims against the Debtors, stated that
the Court must not deny the motion and deny the borrowing motion
unless and until the Debtors demonstrate that there is a reasonable
likelihood that a plan of reorganization which benefits creditors
will be confirmed within a reasonable period of time.

In seeking an exclusivity extension, James T. Grogan, Esq., at Paul
Hastings LLP, in New York, told the Court that the approximately
four-month extension of exclusivity is necessary to allow GTAT
sufficient time to resolve intercompany issues and to propose a
Chapter 11 plan, which may include value maximizing structures,
that takes advantage of all that has been accomplished in the
Chapter 11 cases to date.  Mr. Grogan adds that opening the plan
process up to competing plans and the inherent competing interests
at this juncture could undermine all of the progress made in the
Chapter 11 cases, interfere with and detract from negotiations
regarding the intercompany issues, and distract the Debtors'
employees and professionals' attention from implementing the
Business Plan to the detriment of all parties-in-interest.

Headquartered in Merrimack, New Hampshire, GT Advanced Technologies
Inc. -- http://www.gtat.com/-- produces materials and equipment
for the electronics industry.  On Nov. 4, 2013, GTAT announced a
multiyear supply deal with Apple Inc. to produce
sapphire glass material for use in consumer electronics products.

Under the deal, Apple would provide GTAT with a prepayment of
approximately $578 million paid in four installments and, starting
in 2015, GTAT would reimburse Apple for the prepayment over a
five-year period.

GT is a publicly held corporation whose stock was traded on NASDAQ
under the ticker symbol "GTAT."  GTAT was de-listed from the
NASDAQ stock exchange in October 2014.

As of June 28, 2014, the GTAT Group's unaudited and consolidated
financial statements reflected assets totaling $1.5 billion and
liabilities totaling $1.3 billion.  As of Sept. 29, 2014, GTAT
had $85 million in cash, $84 million of which is unencumbered.

On Oct. 6, 2014, GT Advanced Technologies and eight affiliates
filed voluntary petitions for relief under Chapter 11 of the
United States Bankruptcy Code (Bankr. D.N.H. Lead Case No.
14-11916).  GT says that it has sought bankruptcy protection due
to a severe liquidity crisis brought about by its issues with
Apple.

The Debtors have tapped Nixon Peabody LLP and Paul Hastings LLP as
attorneys and Kurtzman Carson Consultants LLC as claims and
noticing agent.

The U.S. Trustee has named seven members to the Official Committee
of Unsecured Creditors.  The Committee' professionals are Kelley
Drye as its bankruptcy counsel; Devine, Millimet & Branch,
Professional Association as local counsel; EisnerAmper LLP as
financial advisors; and Houlihan Lokey Capital, Inc. as investment
banker.

GTAT has reached a settlement with Apple.  The settlement gives
Apple an approved claim for $439 million secured by more than
2,000 sapphire furnaces that GT Advanced owns and has four years
to
sell, with proceeds going to Apple.  In addition, Apple gets
royalty-free, non-exclusive licenses for GTAT's technology.

The bankruptcy case is assigned to Judge Henry J. Boroff.



HALCON RESOURCES: Posts $1.09 Billion Net Loss for Second Quarter
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Halcon Resources Corporation filed with the Securities and Exchange
Commission its quarterly report on Form 10-Q disclosing a net loss
of $1.09 billion on $168 million of total operating revenues for
the three months ended June 30, 2015, compared with a net loss of
$67.5 million on $327 million of total operating revenue for the
same period in 2014.

For the six months ended June 30, 2015, the Company reported a net
loss of $1.68 billion on $304 million of total operating revenues
compared to a net loss of $140 million on $602 million of total
operating revenues for the same period last year.

As of June 30, 2015, the Company had $4.64 billion in total assets,
$4.1 billion in total liabilities, $137 million in redeemable
non-controlling interest, and $346 million in total stockholders'
equity.

A copy of the Form 10-Q is available at http://is.gd/13GGU1

                       About Halcon Resources

Halcon Resources Corporation acquires, produces, explores and
develops onshore liquids-rich assets in the United States.  This
independent energy company operates in the Bakken/Three Forks, El
Halcon and Tuscaloosa Marine Shale formations.

                           *     *      *

As reported by the TCR on Jan. 27, 2015, Moody's Investors Service
downgraded Halcon's Corporate Family Rating to 'Caa1' from 'B3' and
the Probability of Default Rating to 'Caa1-PD' from 'B3-PD'.  The
downgrade reflects growing risk for Halcon's business profile
because of high financial leverage and limited liquidity as its
existing hedges roll-off and stop contributing to its borrowing
base over the next 12-18 months.

In June 2015, the TCR reported that Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services raised its corporate credit rating on Houston-based Halcon
Resources Corp. to 'B-' from 'SD' (selective default).
"The upgrade follows our assessment that Halcon is unlikely to
enter into additional debt-for-equity transactions, which we could
potentially view as distressed exchanges, because of its low stock
price and diminished market appetite," said Standard & Poor's
credit analyst Ben Tsocanos.


HD SUPPLY: Intends to Enter Into New Senior Term Loan Facility
--------------------------------------------------------------
HD Supply, Inc., an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of HD Supply
Holdings, Inc., announced its intention to enter into a new Senior
Secured Term Loan Facility, the proceeds of which the Company
intends to use, together with cash on hand and borrowings under its
existing Senior Secured Revolving Facility, to refinance its
existing Senior Secured Term Loan Facility.  

The Company expects the new Senior Secured Term Loan Facility will
mature in 2021 and will permit the Company to pay down certain
existing indebtedness, including using the expected proceeds of the
recently announced sale of its Power Solutions business unit to
redeem all of its outstanding 11% Senior Secured Second Priority
Notes due 2020.  The Company currently anticipates that the Power
Solutions transaction will be completed in the Company's fiscal
third quarter; however, there can be no assurances that the
transaction will be completed, as it is subject to market and other
customary conditions.  The Company expects the new Senior Secured
Term Loan Facility will generally contain terms and conditions
consistent with its existing Senior Secured Term Loan Facility;
however, there can be no assurance that a new facility will be
available on terms satisfactory to the Company or that the Company
will enter into any that facility.

The Company filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission a
copy of a slide presentation to certain of its lenders.  The
presentation is available for free at http://is.gd/0bycw5

                          About HD Supply

largest North American wholesale distributors supporting
residential and non-residential construction and to a lesser
extent electrical consumption and repair and remodeling.  HDS also
provides maintenance, repair and operations services.  Its
businesses are organized around three segments: Infrastructure and
Energy; Maintenance, Repair & Improvement; and, Specialty

As of May 3, 2015, HD Supply had $6.3 billion in total assets, $6.8
billion in total liabilities and a $498 million total stockholders'
deficit.

                           *     *     *

As reported by the TCR on Aug. 5, 2015, Moody's Investors Service
upgraded HD Supply, Inc.'s Corporate Family Rating to B2 from B3
and revised its rating outlook to positive from stable, since key
debt credit metrics are becoming more supportive of higher ratings.
The upgrade of HDS's Corporate Family Rating to B2 from B3 and the
change in rating outlook to positive from stable results from
Moody's expectations for key debt credit metrics becoming more
supportive of higher ratings, due to solid operating performance
and lower levels of balance sheet debt.

The TCR reported in August 2015 that Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services said that it has raised its corporate credit rating on
Atlanta-based industrial distributor HD Supply Inc. to 'B+' from
'B'.  "The upgrade reflects the company's consistently good
operating performance over the past 12 months, which has caused its
leverage to fall below 6x as of May 3, 2015," said Standard &
Poor's credit analyst Svetlana Olsha.

HUNTSMAN INT'L: Moody's Assigns Ba2 Rating on Amended Term Loan B
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a Ba2 rating to Huntsman
International LLC's (HI) amended secured term loan B.  Huntsman is
asking holders of its senior secured term B - Series 1 and Series 2
- to extend the maturity of loan by two years to April 2019 in
exchange for a 25 bp fee and an increase in the undrawn spread to
LIBOR+300.  HI is a direct subsidiary of Huntsman Corporation
(Huntsman), and both entities have Corporate Family Ratings (CFRs)
of Ba3 with stable outlooks.

"Huntsman is seeking to extend the maturity of its term loan as the
lack of EBITDA growth has limited the free cash flow available for
debt repayment," stated John Rogers Senior Vice President at
Moody's.

Ratings assigned:

Huntsman International LLC

Amended senior secured term loan B at Ba2 (LGD2)

RATINGS RATIONALE

The Ba3 Corporate Family Ratings (CFR) at Huntsman and HI reflect
their solid competitive position in urethanes, as well as an
experienced management team.  Additional support for the rating
considers management's stated intention to reduce net leverage to
about 2.0 to 2.5 times on a normalized EBITDA basis (this ratio
does not incorporate Moody's adjustments).  However, current credit
metrics are relatively weak for the rating due to the October 1,
2014 acquisition of Rockwood Specialties Group Inc.'s (Rockwood)
Pigments and Performance Additives (P&PA) business for $1.2 billion
($1 billion in cash and $233 in pension liabilities). Huntsman's
pro forma Debt/EBITDA, for the LTM June 30, 2015, is 4.8x as plant
turnarounds and weaker margins in TiO2 have limited free cash flow
generation.  Huntsman's financial performance is likely to remain
challenged due to industry conditions, despite additional cost
reduction actions.  Hence, debt repayment is likely to be slower
than Moody's had previously forecasted.  The weakness in TiO2
prices in the first half of 2015 indicates that the trough in TiO2
is likely to be extended unless additional capacity is shut down.
Moody's also believes that Huntsman's will not be able to undertake
an initial public offering of the TiO2 business in 2016.

The Ba2 rating on the amended term loan B is the same as HI's
existing term loan and senior secured revolving credit facility.
Ratings on the prior term loans are likely to remain outstanding as
Huntsman is not seeking to extend the maturity on all of its term
loan debt.

While Huntsman's Pigments (TiO2) business remains challenged, three
of its other segments (Performance Products, Advanced Materials and
Textile Effects) have demonstrated moderate year-over-year
improvements in 2015.  Moody's expects that Huntsman's financial
performance will improve in the second half of 2015 due to lower
raw material costs but that credit metrics will remain at the low
end of the rating category.

The Debt/EBITDA metric cited above incorporates Moody's standard
adjustments, which add roughly $1.55 billion of additional debt
($978 million in pensions, and $578 million in capitalized
operating leases).

The stable outlook reflects the expected improvement in Huntsman's
financial metrics in the second half of 2015 and into 2016, from
the weak pro forma levels cited above, given the anticipated growth
in Huntsman's Polyurethane and Performance Products businesses.
Moody's could downgrade Huntsman's ratings if TiO2 margins
deteriorate further, with Debt/EBITDA remaining above 4.5x and
Retained Cash Flow/Debt falling below 10% for an extended period.
The ratings currently have limited upside due to the Rockwood
acquisition, but could be upgraded if Huntsman successfully reduced
leverage below 3.5x on a sustainable basis.

The principal methodology used in this rating was Global Chemical
Industry Rating Methodology published in December 2013.  Other
methodologies used include Loss Given Default for Speculative-Grade
Non-Financial Companies in the U.S., Canada and EMEA published in
June 2009.

Huntsman Corporation is a global manufacturer of differentiated and
commodity chemical products.  Huntsman's products are used in a
wide variety of end markets, including aerospace, automotive,
construction, consumer products, electronics, medical, packaging,
coatings, refining and synthetic fibers.  Huntsman has revenues of
almost $12 billion.

the Company's chief executive officer, Kent P. Watts, holds a 49%
interest.  The Company acquired this note upon its acquisition of
HCN on Dec. 9, 2013.  The 619,960 shares of the Company's common
stock were previously issued by the Company to HCN to settle

place between the Company and HCN.  The note was due upon the
occurrence of any of the following conditions: (1) upon the sale of
all or part of the shares by the owner of the shares to a third
party; (2) within 60 days of the six month anniversary of the Dec.
4, 2013, stock sale or within 60 days from the date that the shares
become unrestricted (whichever occurred first); or (3) within 90
days of the date our common stock is listed on a major stock
exchange and trades at a share price above $6.00 per share.

This note receivable was extended on Aug. 4, 2014, for an extension
fee of $50,000, payable in the future, with $750,000 due to be
repaid by Dec. 31, 2014, with the remaining balance to be repaid by
March 31, 2015.

On April 27, 2015, the Board of Directors agreed to offer SMDRE the
option, for 90 days, for the SMDRE note to be paid in full for a
67% discount.  Between April 27, 2015, and July 9, 2015, the
Company received payments on the SMDRE LLC note in the amount of
$531,000.  The balance of the discounted note of $88,898 has been
extended for another 60 days.

Duma Holdings Note

On July 16, 2015, pursuant to a Note Subscription Agreement, the
Company sold a $350,000 Convertible Secured Promissory Note to Duma
Holdings, LLC, of which Chris Herndon, a member of our Board of
Directors, owns a 20% interest.  The Duma Holdings Note is
convertible at any time, provided the note is converted in full,
into (a) 1.75 units, each consisting of 25,000 shares of common
stock of the Company and $100,000 in face amount of Convertible
Subordinated Promissory Notes in the form currently offered by the
Company in its ongoing private offering of Units as previously
disclosed in the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by the Company
with the Securities and Exchange Commission on June 19, 2015; and
(b) 350,000 shares of common stock (393,750 shares of common stock
in aggregate when combined with the shares which form part of the
Units).  The Duma Holdings Note is due and payable by us on
Nov. 30, 2015.  The Duma Holdings Note accrues interest at the rate
of 15% per annum, payable beginning on Oct. 31, 2015, and quarterly
thereafter through maturity.  The Duma Holdings Note can only be
repaid with the prior written approval of Duma Holdings.  The Duma
Holdings Note contains usual and customary events of default,
representations and warranties.  The payment of the principal and
accrued interest due under the Duma Holdings Note is personally
guaranteed by Kent P. Watts, the Company's chief executive officer
and Michael Watts, his brother, pursuant to separate guaranty
agreements, and secured by a first priority security interest on
certain real estate owned by Kent P. Watts pursuant to a Deed of
Trust, Assignment of Rents and Security Agreement.

Hydrocarb Energy, formerly known as Duma Energy Corp, is a
publicly-traded Domestic and International energy exploration and
production company targeting major under-explored oil and gas
projects in emerging, highly prospective regions of the world.
With exploration concessions in Africa, production in Galveston
Bay and Oil Field Services in the United Arab Emirates, the
Company maintain offices in Houston, Texas, Abu Dhabi, UAE and
Windhoek, Namibia.

Hydrocarb Energy reported a net loss of $6.55 million on $5.06
million of revenues for the year ended July 31, 2014, compared to
a net loss of $37.5 million on $7.07 million of revenues for the
year ended July 31, 2013.

As of April 30, 2015, the Company had $27.6 million in total
assets, $24.2 million in total liabilities and $3.4 million in
total equity.

"A decline in the price of our common stock could result in a
reduction in the liquidity of our common stock and a reduction in
our ability to raise additional capital for our operations.
Because our operations to date have been largely financed through
the sale of equity securities, a decline in the price of our
common stock could have an adverse effect upon our liquidity and
our continued operations.  A reduction in our ability to raise
equity capital in the future could have a material adverse effect
upon our business plan and operations, including our ability to
continue our current operations," the Company stated in its
annual report for the year ended July 31, 2014.


IPREO HOLDINGS: Moody's Affirms B3 CFR on $60MM Incremental Loan
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service said Ipreo Holdings LLC's B3 Corporate
Family Rating (CFR), debt ratings and stable outlook are not
impacted by the company's recent announcement that it will raise a
$60 million incremental term loan to help fund the iLEVEL

KIK CUSTOM: Moody's Affirms B3 Corp. Family Rating, Outlook Stable
------------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service affirmed KIK Custom Products Inc.'s B3
corporate family rating (CFR), B3-PD probability of default rating
(PDR), B2 first lien term loan rating, and Caa2 second lien term
loan rating.  The ratings outlook remains stable.  Moody's also
assigned B2 and Caa2 ratings respectively to the proposed term loan
and senior unsecured notes to be issued by Kronos Acquisition
Holdings Inc., the indirect parent company of KIK Custom Products
Inc..  Moody's assigned an SGL-2 speculative grade liquidity rating
and a stable outlook to Kronos Acquisition Holdings Inc. and will
move the B3 CFR and B3-PD PDR to Kronos Acquisition Holdings Inc.
from KIK Custom Products Inc. when the refinance transaction
closes.  Moody's will also withdraw the existing B2 first lien term
loan rating, Caa2 second lien term loan rating and stable outlook
of KIK Custom Products Inc. at the same time.

Net proceeds from the proposed $850 million senior secured term
loan B and $390 million senior unsecured notes, together with $413
million of contributed equity, primarily from Centerbridge Partners
LLC, will be used to fund the acquisition of KIK Custom Products
Inc. from CI Capital Partners and to repay existing debt.

"While the buy-out transaction will increase KIK's leverage by
almost a turn and a half of EBITDA to 8x, the affirmation of the
CFR considers that EBITDA growth and modest debt repayment will
enable leverage to fall within the range for the B3 rating through
the next 12 to 18 months," said Peter Adu, Moody's lead analyst for
KIK.

Outlook Actions:

RATINGS RATIONALE

KIK's B3 CFR primarily reflects its high leverage (pro forma
adjusted Debt/EDITDA of 8x), low growth characteristics, lack of
meaningful debt repayment from free cash flow, and the presence of
a significantly larger and better capitalized branded competitor,
Clorox Company (Baa1, stable).  The rating considers KIK's sizeable
share of the US private label bleach market, its position as the
largest contract manufacturer for blue-chip consumer packaged goods
customers, and its good position in pool additives following the
BioLab acquisition.  In addition to its low growth profile,
operating results may be volatile given KIK's relatively high
exposure to raw material costs.  Moody's expects the pool business,
synergy benefits from recent acquisitions and ongoing operational
improvements to drive growth in EBITDA and together with modest
debt repayment, leverage should fall below 6x in the next 12 to 18
months.

KIK has good liquidity (SGL-2), supported by pro forma cash of $20
million, $220 million of availability under its new $225 million
ABL revolver due 2020 and Moody's expectation for annual free cash
flow of at least $30 million.  These sources are ample to meet term
loan amortizations of $8.5 million per year.  KIK will not have to
comply with any financial covenant unless its availability falls
below $22.5 million, when it will have to comply with a minimum
fixed charge coverage ratio of 1x.  Since Moody's does not expect
material usage of the ABL through the next 4 to 6 quarters, this
covenant is not expected to be restrictive.  Access to alternative
liquidity from asset sales is unlikely because substantially all of
the company's assets are pledged as collateral for its new credit
facilities.

The outlook is stable given Moody's expectation that KIK's leverage
will decline below 6x, a level more supportive of the B3 rating,
within 12 to 18 months.

Moody's will consider upgrading KIK's ratings if it maintains
adequate liquidity, proves its ability to generate consistent
positive free cash flow, and sustains adjusted Debt/EBITDA towards
5.5x along with RCF/Net Debt well above 10%.  The ratings will be
downgraded if there is significant deterioration in operating
performance arising from volume or price declines and margin
contraction such that adjusted Debt/EBITDA is sustained towards 7x.
KIK's ratings will also be downgraded if its liquidity
deteriorates, likely due to negative free cash flow generation on a
consistent basis.

Goods published in June 2013.  Other methodologies used include
Loss Given Default for Speculative-Grade Non-Financial Companies in
the U.S., Canada and EMEA published in June 2009.

KISSNER MILLING: Moody's Affirms B3 CFR, Outlook Stable
-------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has affirmed Kissner Milling Company
Limited's B3 corporate family rating (CFR), and the company's B3-PD
probability of default rating (PDR).  Concurrently, Moody's has
assigned a B3 to the company's proposed $425 million senior secured
first-lien term loan due in 2022.  Moody's understands that the
proceeds of the proposed term loan will be used to (1) repay the
company's existing $220 million senior secured notes due in 2019;
(2) fund the recent acquisition of rock salt producer BSC Holding
Inc. (BSC, unrated); (3) fund a distribution to shareholders; and
(4) pay related transaction fees and expenses. Once repaid, Moody's
will withdraw the rating assigned to the company's senior secured
notes due in 2019.  The outlook on all ratings remain stable.

In May 2015, Kissner was acquired by an investor group led by
Metalmark Capital.  The previous majority shareholder, TorQuest
Partners sold its majority interest in Kissner to this investment
group comprised of Metalmark Capital, Silverhawk Capital Partners,
and Demetree Salt, LLC.  With the exception of Kissner, all
entities are unrated.

In July 2015, Kissner announced they had reached a purchase
agreement to acquire BSC.

"The BSC acquisition improves Kissner's scale; however, the
increase in leverage will constrain the company's financial
flexibility during any period of mild snowfall within its area of
operations," says Anthony Hill, a Moody's Vice-President -- Senior
Credit Officer and lead analyst for Kissner.

Kissner ratings affected as a result of the action:

Affirmations:

  Corporate Family Rating, B3 affirmed
  Probability of Default Rating, B3-PD affirmed
  Senior Secured Notes due 2019, B3, LGD4 affirmed

Assignments:

Senior Secured 1st Lien Term Loan due 2022, assigned B3, LGD4

Outlook Actions:

  Outlook, Remains Stable

RATINGS RATIONALE

Kissner's B3 CFR is constrained by the company's high balance sheet
debt relative to annual sales and the book value of its tangible
assets, weather-dependent business model and equity-accommodative
financial policy.  For fiscal year-end (FYE) April 2015 and pro
forma for the BSC acquisition, the company's leverage is expected
to be around 4.1x debt/EBITDA, on a Moody's-adjusted basis.
However, this metric is based on unusually strong earnings at both
companies over the past year.  Moody's expects leverage to increase
to around 6.0x debt/EBITDA under mild snowfall conditions.  Pro
forma for the BSC acquisition, normalized annual revenues will
increase from around $170 million to around $240 million.  The CFR
is supported by regional competition in the salt business, which
ensures good volumes and profits except during mild winters.  The
lack of geographic overlap between Kissner and BSC does provide
some degree of diversity, both operationally and from a weather
perspective.  The company will also see a positive increase in
storage capacity and a broader reach into the Mid-West area of the
US.

Low salt inventories after a harsh snowfall season, can positively
affect next year's profitability.  The same is true in reverse with
high inventories following a mild snowfall season. Additionally,
the contract bidding season for municipal governments can usually
lock-in profitability expectations for a season before the season
has begun unless the weather is unusually mild.  In 2014, the
Mid-West area of the US experienced seasonally high levels of
snowfall.  As a result, Kissner's profitability was outsized in
2014 and 2015, despite a normal 2015 snowfall season. Furthermore,
given the sector's demand and pricing characteristics, a normal
snowfall in 2015 will translate into a drop in Kissner's 2016 sales
volumes as compared to the seasonally high levels set in 2014 and
2015.  If however, the 2016 season is milder than normal, the
decline in volumes could be greater, and will adversely impact
profitability in the 2017 season.

In Moody's opinion, the effect of a two-year mild weather event on
a salt company's credit profile and financial flexibility can be
acute.  A conservative and disciplined financial policy can
significantly offset this risk.  However, any shareholder
distribution associated with the transaction enhances this risk
(and returns some of the cash equity back to the sponsors less than
three months after it was just put into the transaction).

Pro forma for the transaction, Kissner's liquidity profile is
expected to be adequate.  Primarily supported by its $50 million
asset based revolver and approximately $20 million of cash on hand
at the close of the transaction.  Any shareholder distribution
associated with the transaction will weaken the company's liquidity
position and financial flexibility, especially for FYE 2016.
Moody's understands that the term loan facility will annually
require prepayment of 50% of excess cash flow (excess cash flow
sweep).

Using Moody's Loss Given Default (LGD) methodology, the PDR is
equal to the CFR.  This is based on a 50% recovery rate, primarily
due to the covenant-lite structure of the senior secured credit
facilities.

The stable outlook reflects Moody's expectation that Kissner's
credit measures and liquidity will remain appropriate for the
rating category over a multi-year snow fall cycle with normal
variability.  Additionally, Moody's expects Kissner to continue to
reduce debt somewhat with excess cash balances.

Pro forma for the BSC acquisition, Kissner's improved scale and
business profile is credit positive and adds some pressure to
upgrade the company's rating.  An upgrade would likely require
expectations for financial leverage of around 6.0x debt/EBITDA, on
average through a 2 - 5 year seasonal high/low cycle, retained cash
flow to debt sustainably around 12% of debt in a normalized
environment, and a commitment to maintain a more conservative
financial policy.

Given company's improved scale and business profile, there is
limited pressure to downgrade Kissner's rating.  However, Moody's
would consider a downgrade if the company failed to maintain its
sales volumes and EBITDA at levels that could support its debt
service requirements, or if adequate liquidity is not maintained.
Certainly, any further significant debt-financed transactions or
equity-holder payments that result in a substantial increase in
leverage or decrease in liquidity would likely have a negative
impact on the company's ratings.

Headquartered in Cambridge, Ontario, Canada, Kissner Milling
Company Limited operates a rock salt mine in Detroit, MI and a
packaged goods business.  Kissner's area of operations is primarily
in North America's Great Lakes Region.  BSC Holding Inc. operates a
rock salt mine in Lyons, Kansas and a packaged goods business.
BSC's area of operations is primarily in the Mid-West of the US.
On a combined basis, Kissner and BSC generated approximately $282
million in revenues for fiscal year-end April 2015.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Global Chemical
Industry Rating Methodology published in December 2013. Other
methodologies used include Loss Given Default for Speculative-Grade
Non-Financial Companies in the U.S., Canada and EMEA published in
June 2009.



KISSNER MILLING: S&P Affirms 'B' Corp Credit Rating, Outlook Stable
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it affirmed its 'B'
corporate credit rating on Cambridge, Ont.-based Kissner Milling
Co. Ltd.  The outlook is stable.

At the same time, S&P assigned its 'B' issue-level rating and '4'
recovery rating to Kissner's proposed US$425 million term loan due
2022.  The '4' recovery rating on the term loan indicates S&P's
expectation for average recovery (30%-50%; higher half of the
range) in the event of a payment default.

The company will use the proceeds from the term loan to repay the
existing senior secured notes.  S&P will withdraw the ratings on
the existing senior secured notes once the transaction closes.

"The ratings affirmation reflects our assessment of Kissner's
financial risk profile as 'highly leveraged' and its business risk
profile as 'weak,' both of which are unchanged following the
proposed debt issuance, acquisition of BSC, and shareholder
distribution," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst David Fisher.


The acquisition of BSC broadens Kissner's geographic footprint and
improves its operational and customer diversity.  However, S&P
continues to view Kissner's business risk profile as "weak," as
defined in S&P's criteria.

S&P's assessment of Kissner's business risk profile reflects S&P's
view of the company's limited operational and product diversity,
small scale of operations, and volatile weather-driven demand for
its primary product, de-icing salt.

S&P assesses Kissner's financial risk profile as "highly
leveraged," reflecting S&P's view that the company will generally
maintain credit measures consistent with this financial risk
category.

The stable outlook reflects S&P's expectation that Kissner will
maintain forecast weighted average credit measures and liquidity
consistent with the rating over the next 12 months.

S&P could consider lowering ratings if it expected adjusted debt to
EBITDA to increase to more than 7x on a sustained basis, possibly
because of pricing pressures or consecutive years of mild winter
weather conditions.  S&P could also lower the rating if Kissner's
liquidity position meaningfully deteriorated.  S&P believes this
could occur during a very harsh winter in which the company needed
to purchase or produce significant salt volumes at elevated prices
to fulfill contractual obligations, or if the competitive
environment deteriorated to such an extent that the company became
cash flow negative.

An upgrade in the next 12 months is unlikely because S&P expects
that the company will maintain credit measures consistent with a
"highly leveraged" financial risk profile for at least the next few
years.  While not likely in the near term, S&P could consider an
upgrade if it believed Kissner's leverage was consistent with an
"aggressive" financial risk profile and there was little risk of
the company taking on additional debt after taking into account
ownership considerations.



LEXARIA CORP: Has $511K Net Loss in May 31 Quarter
--------------------------------------------------
Lexaria Corporation filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange
Commission its quarterly report on Form 10-Q, disclosing a net loss
of $511,008 on $7,187 of sales for the three months ended May 31,
2015, compared with a net loss of $437,996 on $nil of sales for the
same period last year.

The Company's balance sheet at May 31, 2015, showed $1.2 million in
total assets, $62,604 in total liabilities, and stockholders'
equity of $1.14 million.

The Company has a net loss of $1.25 million for the nine months
ended May 31, 2015 (May 31, 2014: $639,936) and at May 31, 2015 had
a deficit accumulated since its inception of $9.57 million (Aug.
31, 2014: $8.31 million).  The Company has working capital surplus
of $1.09 million as at May 31, 2015 (Aug. 31, 2014 working capital
surplus: $1.65 million).  The Company requires additional funds to
maintain its existing operations and developments.  These
conditions raise substantial doubt about our Company's ability to
continue as a going concern.

LINN ENERGY: Moody's Lowers CFR to B2, Outlook Negative
-------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded Linn Energy, LLC's (LINE)
Corporate Family Rating (CFR) to B2 from Ba3, its Probability of
Default Rating (PDR) to B2-PD from Ba3-PD, and its unsecured notes
ratings to B3 from B1.  Moody's also affirmed LINE's SGL-3
Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating.  At the same time, Moody's
downgraded the senior unsecured notes ratings of Berry Petroleum
Company (Berry) to B3 from B1.  The outlooks at LINE and Berry are
negative.

"Moody's downgrade of Linn Energy reflects the company's elevated
financial leverage and high cost of capital, which limit its
flexibility in the face of an external liquidity profile that is
declining and a hedge book that will begin to roll off into
materially lower commodity prices," commented Gretchen French,
Moody's Vice President.  "We positively note that LINE has taken a
number of actions this year in response to the low price
environment, including lowering and ultimately suspending its
distribution, and focusing on reducing its debt burden.  However,
the lower CFR and negative outlook reflect the challenges the
company faces in reaching sufficiently lower leverage levels prior
to its hedge positions rolling off."

Issuer: Linn Energy, LLC

  Corporate Family Rating (CFR), downgraded to B2 from Ba3
  Probability of Default Rating (PDR), downgraded to B2-PD from
   Ba3-PD
  Senior Unsecured Notes, downgraded to B3 (LGD-5) from B1 (LGD-5)
  Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating (SGL), affirmed at SGL-3
  Outlook changed to negative from stable

Issuer: Berry Petroleum Company

  Senior Unsecured Notes, downgraded to B3 (LGD-5) from B1 (LGD-5)
  Outlook changed to negative from stable

RATINGS RATIONALE

LINE's B2 CFR reflects its high financial leverage profile and weak
asset coverage of debt, with debt per average daily production and
per proved developed reserves indicative of the Ca and B rating
categories.  The B2 rating also reflects constrained financial
flexibility due to the company's high cost of capital.

LINE's B2 CFR is supported by the company's large reserve base and
production scale across a diverse set of basins.  The company's
size and scale in terms of reserves, production and basin
diversification is similar to Baa-rated E&P peers.  In addition,
the rating is supported by a profile of free cash flow generation
and management focus on debt reduction, reflecting the suspension
of its distributions, the benefit of a strong hedge position
through 2016, and manageable capital spending required in order to
offset a base 15% decline rate and keep production flat.

The SGL-3 Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating reflects LINE's
adequate liquidity profile through 2016.  Supporting LINE's
liquidity profile is an expectation of free cash flow through 2016,
with a high level of hedged production and management focus on debt
reduction.  However, LINE's alternative liquidity is declining,
with borrowing base reductions expected on its revolving credit
facilities in the upcoming October 2015 borrowing base
redetermination and the need for debt reduction in order to have
sufficient EBITDA/Interest covenant compliance of at least 2.5x
through 2016.

LINE's senior unsecured notes are rated B3, one notch below the B2
CFR, reflecting the contractual subordination of the notes relative
to the company's secured bank credit facility and high level of
payables.  Berry's senior unsecured notes are rated B3 reflecting
the contractual subordination of notes relative to Berry's nearly
fully drawn secured bank credit facility.

The outlook is negative.  The ratings could be further downgraded
if LINE is not successful in maintaining adequate liquidity and
reducing debt levels sufficiently in order to improve cash flow
coverage of debt such that retained cash flow/debt does not fall
below 10%.

The ratings could be upgraded if LINE is able to meaningfully
reduce debt balances such that when its hedge book begins to roll
off, EBITDA/Interest is maintained above 3.0x and retained cash
flow/debt is trending towards 15%.

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

LONG BEACH MEDICAL: Proposes Allocation of Sale Proceeds
--------------------------------------------------------
Long Beach Medical Center, et. al., and their Official Committee of
Unsecured Creditors ask the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern
District of New York to approve the allocation of proceeds from the
sale of the Hospital's real property assets to South Nassau
Communities Hospital.

Sean C. Southard, Esq., at Klestadt Winters Jureller Southard &
Stevens, LLP, in New York, New York and Adam T. Berkowitz, Esq., at
Garfunkel Wild, P.C., in Great Neck, New York, relate that the
Debtors are currently holding $3.1 million in net sale proceeds.
They note that numerous prepetition creditors have asserted liens
against a portion of the net sale proceeds.  They tell the Court
that the allocation of the net sale proceeds among major components
of the Hospital Assets is necessary to avoid potential disputes
about how the net sale proceeds should be allocated.

The Hospital Assets sold to SNCH primarily consist of the following
groups of real estate, each a property grouping: (1)the Hospital
Campus, (2) an adjacent parking lot, (3) the FACTS Center, (4) the
Offsite Premises.  To determine how the Net Proceeds should be
allocated among each property grouping, the Tax Assessment was used
and the percentage of overall value for each Property Grouping was
determined.  The Debtors and the Committee believe that utilizing
the Tax Assessment Method value is prudent because it relies upon
objective data and, is thus, impartial.

Under Tax Assessment Method, the Net Proceeds should be allocated
or apportioned among the Property Groupings as follows:

                                               Percentage of
     Property        Fair Market Value       Fair Market Value
     --------        -----------------       -----------------
   Hospital Land          $32,455,500            79.57%

Hein & Associates, LLP, expressed substantial doubt about the
Company's ability to continue as a going concern, citing that the
Company has incurred significant losses from operations and had a
working capital deficit of $9.6 million at March 31, 2015.

The Company reported a net loss of $5.13 million on $3 million of
total revenues in 2015, compared to a net loss of $4.69 million on
$5.22 million of total revenues in the prior year.

METHES ENERGIES: Reports $905K Net Loss in May 31 Quarter
---------------------------------------------------------
Methes Energies International Ltd. filed with the U.S. Securities
and Exchange Commission its quarterly report on Form 10-Q,
disclosing a net loss of $905,142 on $10,574 of biodiesel sales for
the three months ended May 31, 2015, compared with a net loss of
$1.57 million on $316,294 of biodiesel sales for the same period in
2014.

The Company's balance sheet at May 31, 2015, showed $8.73 million
in total assets, $5.37 million in total liabilities, and total
stockholders' equity of $3.36 million.

As at May 31, 2015, due in large part to the funds spent to develop
and build its Sombra facility as well as minimal sales of
biodiesel, the Company had an accumulated deficit of $23.06 million
and significant losses and negative cash flows from operations in
prior periods.  In addition, as at May 31, 2015, the Company had
working capital deficiency of $332,244.  During the six months
ended May 31, 2015, the Company incurred a loss of $849,203 and had
negative cash flows from operations of $386,462.  The Sombra
facility is now idle because of a lack of demand for biodiesel at
favorable prices.  If put back into commercial production and under
better market conditions, the Company anticipates that its Sombra
facility will generate positive cash flow from operations and will
operate profitably once a sufficient level of commercial operations
is achieved.  However, there is uncertainty that this will occur in
the near future so as to enable the Company to meet its obligations
as they come due.  As a result, there is substantial doubt
regarding the Company's ability to continue as a going concern.

OSMOSE UTILITIES: Moody's Assigns 'B3' Corp. Family Rating
----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a B3 Corporate Family Rating and
a B3-PD Probability of Default Rating to Osmose Utilities Services,
Inc., a B2 rating to the company's proposed first lien senior
secured credit facilities consisting of $275 million term loan due
2022 and $45 million revolving credit facility expiring 2020, and a
Caa2 rating to proposed $115 million second lien term loan due
2023.  The rating outlook is stable.

Osmose has entered into a definitive agreement whereby Kohlberg &
Company will acquire the company from its current owners Oaktree
Capital Management, L.P.  The transaction will be financed with the
term loan proceeds and an equity contribution from the sponsor.
The transaction increases the company's debt significantly (by
approximately $150 million) to $390 million, which results in a
total debt level in excess of revenues and pro forma debt-to-EBITDA
leverage rising to approximately 7.3x (incorporating the beneficial
impact of recently renegotiated contracts).  The company's highly
leveraged balance sheet represents a credit profile consistent with
the B3 rating category.  Pro forma EBITDA less capex to interest
coverage is estimated at 1.6x.

Moody's took these rating actions on Osmose Utilities Services,
Inc:

  Corporate family rating, assigned a B3;
  Probability of default rating, assigned a B3-PD;
  Proposed $275 million first lien term loan due 2022, assigned a
   B2 (LGD3);
  Proposed $45 million first lien revolving credit facility
   expiring 2020, assigned a B2 (LGD3);
  Proposed $115 million second lien term loan due 2023, assigned a

   Caa2 (LGD5);

Stable rating outlook.

Issuer: Osmose Holdings, Inc:

The company's existing ratings, including the B2 CFR, remain
unchanged and will be withdrawn upon closing of the transaction.

All ratings are subject to the execution of the transaction as
currently proposed and Moody's review of final documentation.  The
instrument ratings are subject to change if the proposed capital
structure is modified.

RATINGS RATIONALE

The B3 CFR reflects Osmose's high financial leverage and total debt
in excess of revenues resulting from the purchase of the company by
Kohlberg.  The rating also reflects the company's small size
relative to rated companies in the business services industry, a
history of aggressive financial policies that have included
multiple dividends, acquisitions, and divestitures, and the event
risks associated with potential shareholder friendly actions given
the private equity ownership.  The rating is supported by favorable
industry fundamentals, including increasing regulatory
requirements, aging infrastructure, and increasing customer
outsourcing of utility pole maintenance and repair services, the
company's good market positions and national footprint, long-term
contracts and customer relationships, positive free cash flow, and
a good liquidity position.

The B2 rating on the first lien facilities reflects their first
priority security interest in all assets of the company and its
guarantors, which include its immediate parent company and its
domestic subsidiaries.  The Caa2 rating on the second lien term
loan reflects the subordinate lien on the collateral that would
result in first loss absorption provided in the event of a
default.

The stable rating outlook reflects our expectations for organic
growth in revenues and earnings to result in modest deleveraging
over the next 12 to 18 months.

The company's good liquidity position is supported by our
expectations of modest free cash flow generation, sufficient
availability under the $45 million revolving credit facility to
fund seasonal working capital needs, and the flexibility under the
springing first lien leverage covenant.  Liquidity is constrained
by the seasonality of the business, which results in negative free
cash flows during working capital intensive quarters.

The ratings could be considered for an upgrade if adjusted debt to
EBITDA is sustained below 6.0x, free cash flow to debt is
maintained in at least a mid single digit percentage range, and
there is a demonstrated commitment to more conservative financial
policies.

The ratings could be considered for a downgrade if leverage is
sustained above 7.5x, if the company generates negative free cash
flow, or if the liquidity position deteriorates.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Business and
Consumer Service Industry published in December 2014.  Other
methodologies used include Loss Given Default for Speculative-Grade
Non-Financial Companies in the U.S., Canada and EMEA published in
June 2009.

Osmose Utilities Services, Inc., headquartered in Atlanta, GA,
provides utility pole inspection, treatment, and restoration
services to investor-owned utilities, cooperatives, municipalities,
and telecommunication utility providers.  The company also provides
additional value-added services, engineering services, underground
vault inspection and repair, product sales, and other ancillary
services.  Osmose is being acquired by Kohlberg & Company from
Oaktree Capital Management, L.P., which has been involved since
2012.  In the LTM period ending June 30, 2015, the company
generated approximately $300 million in revenues.



PASSAIC HEALTHCARE: Essex Settlement to Pave Way for Sale
---------------------------------------------------------
Passaic Healthcare Services, LLC, and its affiliated debtors ask
the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of New Jersey to approve
their settlement agreement with Essex Capital Corporation,
Cornerstone Essex Leasing Co. LLC and Sequoia Healthcare Services,
LLC.

The settlement agreement relates to the sale of durable medical
equipment that are in the possession of the Debtors, and leased out
to homecare patients and customers.

The Debtors allege that approximately 2/3 of the DME are leased
from, and are owned by, Essex.  They also allege that the remaining
1/3 of the DME are owned by the Subsidiary Debtors, Galloping Hill
Surgical, LLC and Allcare SNJ, LLC.

The material terms of the Settlement Agreement, among others, are
as follows:

     (a) Notwithstanding Essex's ownership interest in the Essex
DME, for purposes of the settlement only, Essex will be deemed to
have transferred, conceded, conveyed and/or released to the
Debtors' estates all of Essex's claims and/or rights of ownership
in the Essex DME to be sold pursuant to the Proposed Sale, and the
Debtors' estates shall be deemed to have all rights to sell or
convey the Essex DME pursuant to the Proposed Sale.

     (b) As a matter of convenience to the Debtors' estates and to
limit expense of administration to the Debtors' estates, for
purposes of the settlement, the Parties agree that the value of the
Essex DME shall be 2/3 of the value of all of the DME sold by the
Debtors' estates pursuant to the Proposed Sale.

     (c) As a matter of convenience to the Debtors' estates and to
limit the expense of administration to the Debtors' estates, for
purposes of the settlement, the Parties agree that the value of the
Subsidiary Debtor DME to be sold in the Proposed Sale will be 1/3
of the value of all of the DME sold by the Debtors' estates
pursuant to the Proposed Sale.

     (d) On account of the sale of the Essex DME, the Debtors'
counsel shall hold in escrow 2/3 of the value received from the
Proposed Sale for Essex.

     (e) On account of the sale of the Subsidiary Debtor DME,
Debtors' counsel will hold in escrow 1/3 of the value received from
the Proposed Sale, for Sequoia and/or MidCap Funding IV Trust.

     (f) The Subsidiary DME Sales Escrow will be held by Debtors'
counsel until the first-position lien of MidCap is paid in full, at
which point the funds shall be disbursed to Sequoia, subject to the
rights of carveout of estate professionals set forth in the Final
Cash Collateral Order, no other party having or asserting a lien on
assets owned by the Subsidiary Debtors.

     (g) The Debtors' estates shall be authorized and shall have a
continuing obligation to escrow and disburse funds from the sales
of DME consistent with the Settlement Agreement whenever such funds
from sales of DME are received.  The order authorizing the Proposed
Sale will direct the purchaser of the DME, in the event of any
dismissal or conversion of any of the Bankruptcy Cases, to continue
to fund the Essex DME Sales Escrow and the Subsidiary DME Escrow
consistent with the Settlement.

     (h) Essex shall retain the right (i) to object to any proposed
sale of DME, including if Essex believes, in its sole discretion,
that the value ascribed to the DME as part of such sale is
unreasonably low, and (ii)to offer to purchase DME from Debtors'
estate, provided that Essex will have no obligation to make such
offer.

     (i) Essex's and Sequoia's consent to the Proposed Sale is
conditioned upon approval of the Settlement Agreement by the Court,
and entry of a Sale Order in a form reasonably acceptable to Essex
and Sequoia that incorporates the provisions of the Settlement
Agreement.

     (j) In the event the Settlement Agreement is not approved, the
Parties specifically reserve all rights and arguments regarding the
DME.

Joseph J. DiPasquale, Esq., at Trenk, DiPasquale, Della Fera &
Sodono, P.C., in West Orange, New Jersey, tells the Court that the
Settlement Agreement is fair and equitable and falls within the
range of reasonableness.  Mr. DiPasquale further tells the Court
that the Debtors are attempting to liquidate their assets for the
benefit of creditors, and without the Settlement Agreement and the
corresponding consent of Essex, the Debtors may not be able to
liquidate the Essex DME, would be forced to litigate with Essex and
other parties, and expend significant estate resources to liquidate
the DME over Essex's objections.  He adds that not only would such
litigation be costly, but there is substantial uncertainty as to
whether the Debtors would be successful in such litigation.

                          Objection Filed

McKesson Medical-Surgical Minnesota Supply Inc. is opposing the
Debtors' motion, alleging that the Debtors have presented no
evidence to support the allocation of ownership of 1/3 of the DME
possessed by the Debtors to the Subsidiary Debtors and that absent
such evidence, there is no showing that the terms of the Settlement
Agreement are fair and equitable.

Counsel for McKesson, Stacey L. Meisel, Esq., at Becker Meisel LLC,
in Livingston, New Jersey, tells the Court that none of the Essex
bills of sale or lease agreements identify which DME Essex
purchased and leased back to PHS, and none of the DME was tagged to
identify it as belonging either to Essex or to PHS or to either of
the Subsidiary Debtors.  She says that as to any specific item of
DME, both the ownership of the item, and the security interests in
the item, are disputed.  Ms. Meisel asserts that the settlement
agreement is not necessary in order for the sale to proceed, as the
Court can authorize the sale of the DME possessed by the Debtors
without the consent of Essex and Sequoia, and the interests of all
parties, including McKesson, can attach to the proceeds.

Essex Capital Corporation and Cornerstone Essex Leasing Co., LLC
quickly responded to McKesson's objection, asserting that there can
be no sale without the proposed settlement and that the sale itself
is fully contingent on the Settlement.  

Counsel to Essex, Curtis M. Plaza, Esq., at Riker Danzig Scherer
Hyland Perretti LLP, in Morristown, New Jersey, notes that the
Asset Purchase Agreement provides that approval of the settlement
is a condition to the Sale.  He says that the proposed settlement,
which was negotiated at arm's length among key parties, resolves
ownership issues regarding the Essex DME, thereby permitting
Debtors to sell the Essex DME. Mr. Plaza tells the Court that
without that resolution, Debtors simply do not have legal authority
to sell the Essex DME. He further tells the Court that while there
may be language changes to the proposed Sale Order that can
accommodate any concerns regarding escrow of the proceeds of the
Sale, in no event should the proposed Settlement be scrapped
wholesale.

                        About Patriot Coal

Patriot Coal Corporation is a producer and marketer of coal in the
United States.  Patriot and its subsidiaries control 1.4 billion
tons of proven and probable coal reserves -- including owned and
leased assets in the Central Appalachia basin (in West Virginia
and Ohio) and Southern Illinois basin (in Kentucky and Illinois)
and their operations consist of eight active mining complexes in
West Virginia.

Patriot Coal first sought Chapter 11 protection on July 9, 2012,
and, on Dec. 18, 2013, won approval of its bankruptcy-exit plan
from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of
Missouri.  The plan turned over most of the ownership of the
company to bondholders that include New York hedge fund Knighthead
Capital Management LLC.  The linchpins of the plan were a global
settlement among the Debtors, the United Mine Workers of America,
and two third parties -- Peabody Energy Corporation and Arch Coal,
Inc. -- and a commitment by a consortium of creditors, led by
Knighthead, to backstop two rights offerings that funded the plan.

Patriot Coal Corporation and its subsidiaries commenced new
Chapter 11 cases (Bankr. E.D. Va. Lead Case No. 15-32450) in
Richmond, Virginia, on May 12, 2015.  The cases are assigned to
Judge Keith L. Phillips.

The Debtors tapped Kirkland & Ellis LLP as counsel; Kutak Rock
L.L.P., as co-counsel; Centerview Partners LLC as investment
bankers; Alvarez & Marsal North America, LLC, as restructuring
advisors; and Prime Clerk LLC, as claims and administrative agent.

The U.S. trustee overseeing the Chapter 11 case of Patriot Coal
Corp. appointed seven creditors of the company to serve on the
official committee of unsecured creditors.

Patriot Coal estimated more than $1 billion in assets and debt.



PENN VIRGINIA: Hires Jefferies for Financial Advice
---------------------------------------------------
Claire Poole, writing for The Deal, reported that
activist-pressured oil and gas explorer Penn Virginia Corp. said on
Aug. 4 that it hired Jefferies LLC to provide financial advice
generally and act as its exclusive financial adviser in connection
with asset-level financing transactions with investors for its
properties in South Texas' Eagle Ford shale.

The Deal, citing a source, said Jefferies banker Ralph Eads was
advising the company.  The company said Jefferies will help it
evaluate strategic alternatives with respect to its Eagle Ford
assets and their development as part of its general advisory
services and will provide the company with other financial advice
and financial planning assistance, according to The Deal.

The Troubled Company Reporter, on June 1, 2015, reported that
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered the corporate credit
rating on Radnor, Pa.-based exploration and production (E&P)
company Penn Virginia Corp. to 'B' from 'B+'.  The outlook is
stable.

At the same time, S&P lowered its ratings on the company's senior
unsecured debt to 'CCC+' from 'B'.  The recovery rating on the
debt
remains '6', which indicates S&P's expectation for negligible (0%
to 10%) recovery in the event of a default.


PLUG POWER: Completes Acquisition of Hypulsion JV in Europe
-----------------------------------------------------------
Plug Power Inc. has completed the previously announced acquisition
of HyPulsion, the European joint venture created by Plug Power and
Axane, S.A., a subsidiary of Air Liquide S.A. in 2012.  Plug Power
will assume all responsibilities for the development, engineering,
sales and marketing efforts in Europe for its GenFuel hydrogen and
GenDrive fuel cell product lines and corresponding GenCare
services.

On July 31, 2015, the Company issued 4,781,250 shares of its common

4,781,250 shares of Common Stock issued at closing, plus up to
3,105,348 additional shares of Common Stock potentially issuable to
Axane under the Share Purchase Agreement.

Plug Power will offer its CE-certified GenDrive products to
European lift truck customers in the $20 billion European electric
lift truck market.  For the short-term, Plug Power will continue to
develop, engineer, and manufacture all products in the United
States with a sales and service force in Europe.

Air Liquide will remain a strategic hydrogen production partner to
Plug Power, acting as a hydrogen supplier to Plug Power's material
handling customers.  Additionally, Air Liquide will continue to
represent a seat on Plug Power's board of directors, a position
held since 2012.

"Plug Power is ready to move in Europe," said Andy Marsh, CEO of
Plug Power.  "Our success with customers like BMW and Volkswagen
has helped open doors in Europe, a $20 billion market where
customers have a strong mandate for cleaner, more productive
distribution centers and where Plug Power has an impressive head
start on our competitors."

                        Bankruptcy Warning

"Our cash requirements relate primarily to working capital needed
to operate and grow our business, including funding operating
expenses, growth in inventory to support both shipments of new
units and servicing the installed base, and continued development
and expansion of our products.  Our ability to achieve
profitability and meet future liquidity needs and capital
requirements will depend upon numerous factors, including the
timing and quantity of product orders and shipments; the timing and
amount of our operating expenses; the timing and costs of working
capital needs; the timing and costs of building a sales base; the
timing and costs of developing marketing and distribution channels;
the timing and costs of product service requirements; the timing
and costs of hiring and training product staff; the extent to which
our products gain market acceptance; the timing and costs of
product development and introductions; the extent of our ongoing
and any new research and development programs; and changes in our
strategy or our planned activities. We expect that we may require
significant additional capital to fund and expand our future
operations.  In particular, in the event that our operating
expenses are higher than anticipated or the gross margins and
shipments of our products are lower than we expect, we may need to
implement contingency plans to conserve our liquidity or raise
additional capital to meet our operating needs. Such plans may
include: a reduction in discretionary expenses, funding from
licensing the use of our technologies, debt and equity financing
alternatives, government programs, and/or a potential business
combination, strategic alliance or sale of a portion or all of the
Company.  If we are unable to fund our operations and therefore
cannot sustain future operations, we may be required to delay,
reduce and/or cease our operations and/or seek bankruptcy
protection," the Company said in its 2014 annual report.


REALOGY HOLDINGS: Posts $98 Million Net Income for Second Quarter
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Realogy HOldings Corp. filed with the Securities and Exchange
Commission its quarterly report on Form 10-Q disclosing net income
of $98 million on $1.6 billion of net revenues for the three months
ended June 30, 2015, compared to net income of $69 million on $1.5
billion of net revenues for the same period in 2014.

For the six months ended June 30, 2015, the Company reported net
income of $66 million on $2.7 billion of net revenues compared to
net income of $23 million on $2.5 billion of net revenues for the
same period during the prior year.

As of June 30, 2015, the Company had $7.8 billion in total assets,
$5.5 billion in total liabilities and $2.2 billion in total
equity.

"Our second quarter results continued the momentum from the first
quarter," said Richard A. Smith, Realogy's chairman, chief
executive officer and president.  "The fundamentals of the housing
market continue to gain strength, and our results reflect these
improving conditions along with the impact of our strategic growth
initiatives."

Smith continued: "We delivered strong free cash flow of $273
million in the second quarter, which we believe demonstrates the
strength of our business model.  We expect that we will end the
year with a cash balance of approximately $650 million, more than
double the balance at December 31, 2014, which positions us to
further delever our balance sheet."

"Looking ahead to the third quarter of 2015, we expect to see
homesale transaction volume gains in the range of 7% to 10%
year-over-year on a company-wide basis," said Anthony E. Hull,
executive vice president, chief financial officer and treasurer.
"Based on our closed and open sales activity in June and July, we
expect third quarter homesale transaction sides to be up 5% to 7%
year-over-year and average homesale price to increase 2% to 3% for
RFG and NRT combined."

Hull continued: "Since our primary earnings quarters are the second
and third quarters of each year, and we now have visibility into
the third quarter, we are providing full year Adjusted EBITDA
guidance at this time.  We expect Realogy's Adjusted EBITDA will be
between $810 to $840 million for the full year 2015 and expect that
our Adjusted EBITDA margins will be between 14.1% to 14.3%."

                           *     *     *

In the Aug. 1, 2013, edition of the TCR, Moody's Investors Service
upgraded the corporate family rating of Realogy Group to to B2
from B3.  The upgrade to B2 CFR is driven by expectations for
ongoing strong financial performance, supported by Realogy's
recently-concluded debt and equity financing activities and a
continuing recovery in the US existing home sale market.

As reported by the TCR on Feb. 18, 2013, Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services raised its corporate credit rating on Realogy Corp. to
'B+' from 'B'.

"The one notch upgrade in the corporate credit rating to 'B+'
reflects an increase in our expectation for operating performance
at Realogy in 2013, and S&P's expectation that total lease
adjusted debt to EBITDA will improve to the low-6x area and funds
from operations (FFO) to total adjusted debt will be improve to
the high-single-digits percentage area in 2013, mostly due to
EBITDA growth in the low- to mid-teens percentage area in 2013,"
S&P said.


RICHMOND CITY: Moody's Lowers Issuer Rating to 'Ba1'
----------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has downgraded the City of Richmond, CA's
issuer rating to Ba1 from Baa1, 1999 Taxable Limited Obligation
Pension Bonds (POBs) to Ba2 from Baa2, and Series 2006 A wastewater
enterprise revenue bonds to Baa2 from A2.  No outlook was assigned
and the review of ratings for downgrade was concluded.

SUMMARY RATING RATIONALE

This action concludes a review for downgrade initiated on May 13,
2015.  At that time, Moody's downgraded the City of Richmond's
issuer rating (implied GO) to Baa1 from A1 and its pension
obligation bonds (POBs) rating to Baa2 from A2.  The review for
possible further downgrade focused on the City's financial
management, revenue volatility, high levels of variable rate debt
and derivatives, and large advances to poorly performing operating
and enterprise funds.  Concurrently, the A2 rating of the
wastewater enterprise revenue bonds was placed on review for
possible downgrade.  The review of the enterprise, which has
maintained a significantly better financial position, focused on
the potential financial pressure from the City's operations, given
the common management.

The current action downgrading the City's issuer rating (implied
GO) to Ba1 from Baa1 reflects the City's inadequate steps to
address its long-term structural imbalance in FYs 2015 and 2016,
extremely narrow liquidity, significant General Fund support of
poorly performing cost recovery and enterprise funds, and the risks
associated with its high level of exposure to variable rate debt
and derivatives.  Depletion of its cash position over the last
seven years has left the City with very little flexibility to
sustain its operations when faced with economic or fiscal
challenges.

The downgrade to Ba2 from Baa2 of the 1999 POB rating incorporates
these same elements, as well as a one-notch distinction from the
City's issuer rating to account for the limited levy available to
pay debt service, bolstered by the senior lien against the levy
associated with the rated 1999 POBs.  Under California law, a GO
pledge is an unlimited ad valorem pledge of the tax base whereby
the issuer must raise property taxes by whatever amount necessary
to repay the obligation, irrespective of the issuer's underlying
financial position.  Richmond's pension override is a limited tax
levy at the pre-Proposition 13, voter-approved rate.  Declines in
the pledged pension override revenue could require the City to rely
on other resources, which are currently extremely limited.

The downgrade to Baa2 from A2 of the Series 2006 A wastewater
revenue bond rating reflects the risk of the City borrowing from
the wastewater enterprise's sizable reserves for short-term
liquidity purposes, and the plan to issue additional debt in the
near term for a substantial capital program.  Already incorporated
within the rating is the wastewater enterprise's high level of cash
on hand, which is largely offset by exposure to puttable variable
rate debt and derivatives.  Factored positively into the rating is
the recently adopted rate increases to support debt service
coverage requirements and fund capital projects.

OUTLOOK

Outlooks are usually not assigned to local government credits with
this amount of debt outstanding.

WHAT COULD MAKE THE ISSUER AND POB RATINGS GO UP

  Significant and sustained improvement in reserves and liquidity
  Strong management action to control expenditures and bring
   operations into structural balance

WHAT COULD MAKE THE WASTEWATER REVENUE BOND RATING GO UP

  Sustained increase in debt service coverage level
  Significant improvement in the City's liquidity without
   borrowing from the wastewater enterprise

WHAT COULD MAKE THE ISSUER AND POB RATINGS GO DOWN

  Further deterioration of financial position
  Decline in the tax base

WHAT COULD MAKE THE WASTEWATER REVENUE BOND RATING GO DOWN

  Significant depletion of cash reserves
  Decline in debt service coverage levels

OBLIGOR PROFILE

The City of Richmond, CA encompasses 34 square miles on the western
shore of Contra Costa County (Issuer Aa2/Stable), with 32 miles of
shoreline on San Francisco Bay.  Established in 1909 at the western
terminus of the Santa Fe Railroad, the City is a center for oil
refining, shipping, and transportation.  The City burgeoned during
World War II, with the Kaiser Shipyards and naval fuel depot, but
experienced significant decline thereafter. Richmond is a charter
city, providing a full range of municipal services, as well as a
library.  It operates the housing authority, sewer system, storm
water system, deep water port, and marina as enterprises.
Residents receive water service from East Bay Municipal Utility
District (GO Aa1/Stable).  Like other California cities, Richmond's
redevelopment agency was dissolved in 2012.  It had been an active
agency with a large staff and numerous project areas, generating
over $19 million in annual tax increment prior to dissolution.

The enterprise provides sewer services to approximately 18,000
residential parcels and 2,100 industrial and commercial parcels.
Sewer charges are included on tax bills for residential customers
and billed for non-residential customers.  The wastewater system
includes a collection system, treatment plan and disposal system.
The collection system consists of 185 miles of sanitary sewer
pipes, 13 wastewater lift stations, 94 miles of storm water main
lines, 3,300 catch basins, six miles of open ditch, 1,200 manholes,
six miles of V ditch, and seven miles of storm water lift
stations.

LEGAL SECURITY

The 1999 Taxable Limited Obligation Pension Bonds are secured with
a senior pledge of the City's 0.14% ad valorem secured pension
override property tax levy.  It is a general obligation of the
City, which receives sufficient revenue from the county for its
debt service, which is then paid by the City.

The 2005 Taxable Pension Convertible Capital Appreciation Bonds are
secured by a subordinated pledge of the 0.14% ad valorem secured
pension override property tax levy.  It is a general obligation the
City.  The county collects the pledged tax revenue and pays it
directly to the trustee, net of the senior pledged revenue paid to
the City for the 1999 POBs.  The Contra Costa County Board of
Supervisors has the power and obligation to levy and collect the
City's ad valorem secured pension override property taxes upon all
property within the City subject to taxation, limited to the
voter-approved rate of 0.14% (except certain personal property
taxable at limited rates) for use by the City for identified
pension obligations.

The lease revenue bonds are secured by payments made by the
Richmond Financing Authority, which are the derived from rental
payments made by the City to the authority for the use and
occupancy of recently renovated civic center complex, and by the
port enterprise to the authority for use and occupancy of certain
terminal facilities at the Port of Richmond.

The wastewater revenue bonds are secured by the net revenues of the
wastewater enterprise.

USE OF PROCEEDS

Not applicable.

PRINCIPAL METHODOLOGY

The principal methodology used in the issuer rating and pension
obligation bonds was US Local Government General Obligation Debt
published in January 2014.  An additional methodology used in
rating the pension obligation bonds was The Fundamentals of Credit
Analysis for Lease-Backed Municipal Obligations published in
December 2011.  The principal methodology used in rating the
wastewater revenue bonds was US Municipal Utility Revenue Debt
published in December 2014.



RR DONNELLEY: Moody's Affirms Ba2 CFR & Changes Outlook to Dev.
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service changed RR Donnelley & Sons Company's
(RRD) ratings outlook to developing from stable and affirmed the
company's Ba2 corporate family rating (CFR) and Ba2-PD probability
of default rating (PDR).  As part of the same rating action,
Moody's also affirmed RRD's SGL-2 speculative grade liquidity
rating (indicating good liquidity), Baa2 senior secured bank credit
facility rating, and Ba3 senior unsecured notes' rating.

The outlook change was prompted by RRD's announcement of its
intention to create two new, independent, publicly traded stocks,
via a tax-free distribution to RRD's shareholders by the end of
2016.  Owing to a lack of certainty that a transaction will occur
and the lack of detail related to RRD's resulting risk profile,
Moody's changed RRD's outlook to developing.

Moody's views RRD announcement as trading breadth and scope of
operations for increased focus with improved growth prospects.
However, the credit implications of the resulting business and
financial profile combination are not yet estimable.  As the
closing date approaches and additional facts are released, Moody's
may take additional outlook actions or revise RRD's ratings as
warranted.  In Moody's experience, spin-off transactions are
usually credit neutral or credit negative, generally because of
practical limitations on how much value can be returned and used to
reduce debt at the company initiating the transactions.

These summarizes the rating actions and RR Donnelley's ratings:

Issuer: R.R. Donnelley & Sons Company

  Outlook, Changed to Developing from Stable
  Corporate Family Rating, affirmed at Ba2
  Probability of Default Rating, affirmed at Ba2-PD
  Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating, affirmed at SGL-2
  Senior Secured Bank Credit Facility, affirmed at Baa2 (LGD1)
  Senior Unsecured Regular Bond/Debenture, affirmed at Ba3 (LGD4)

RATINGS RATIONALE

RRD's Ba2 corporate family rating is primarily driven by its size
and leadership position in North American commercial printing and
our expectation that leverage will be reduced below 3x in 2016
after recent acquisitions are absorbed.  Moody's expects Donnelley
to continue to use some its free cash flow to shift the company's
focus away from printing, which is in structural decline, while the
rest is used to reduce debt, albeit slowly.

Rating Outlook

The outlook is developing because RRD intends to enter into
transactions which may alter its risk profile but, because specific
plans and timing have not been conveyed to the market, the
implications are not yet estimable.

What Could Change the Rating -- Up

The rating could be upgraded if Moody's expects:
  Sustained Debt-to-EBITDA leverage below 2.5x (3.8x at 31Mar15)
  Sustained free cash flow-to-debt above 10% (5.3% at 31Mar15)
  Stronger industry fundamentals
  Solid liquidity arrangements

What Could Change the Rating -- Down

The rating could be downgraded if Moody's expects:
  Interruption of de-levering progress towards the bottom end of
   management's leverage of Debt-to-EBITDA guidance range of 2.25x

   to 2.75x (equates to approximately 2.75x to 3.25x on a Moody's-
   adjusted basis; 3.8x at 31Mar15)
  Sustained free cash flow-to-debt below 5% (5.3% at 31Mar15)
  Further deterioration in industry fundamentals
  Weaker liquidity arrangements

Corporate Profile

Headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, R.R. Donnelley & Sons Company
is North America's largest commercial printing company, with annual
revenues of approximately $11.6 billion (2014) of which 77% comes
from North American operations while 23% is international.

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



SCIENTIFIC GAMES: Reports Second Quarter 2015 Results
-----------------------------------------------------
Scientific Games Corporation reported a net loss of $102.2 million
on $691.5 million of total revenue for the three months ended
June 30, 2015, compared to a net loss of $72.4 million on $416.9
million of total revenue for the same period in 2014.

For the six months ended June 30, 2015, the Company reported a net
loss of $188.6 million on $1.3 billion of total revenue compared to
a net loss of $117.4 million on $805 million of total revenue for
the same period during the prior year.

As of June 30, 2015, the Company had $9.4 billion in total assets,
$9.7 billion in total liabilities and a total stockholders' deficit
of $260.1 million.

"Throughout the second quarter we made further significant progress
on implementing our key initiatives targeting revenue growth
opportunities, advancing our comprehensive integration efforts and
implementing our planned cost savings," said Gavin Isaacs,
Scientific Games' president and chief executive officer. "We have
heightened our focus on innovation to take advantage of the unique
value proposition we can deliver to drive growth for our customers,
and we're looking forward to a strong showing next week at the
Australia Gaming Expo, and demonstrating our entire portfolio of
innovative solutions in the next two months at the Global Gaming
Expo and National Association of State and Provincial Lotteries
("NASPL") conference."

                    Merger Integration Update

"Concurrent with our commitment to deliver new products that
support our customers' goal of increasing player engagement, our
teams remain focused on the implementation of our comprehensive
integration initiatives," said Scott Schweinfurth, Scientific
Games' executive vice president, chief financial officer and
corporate secretary.  "Through June 30, 2015, implementation of our
integration efforts has generated approximately $150 million of
annualized cost savings related to the Bally integration.  These
savings largely reflect the elimination of duplicative positions in
the Gaming and Interactive businesses and corporate functions, as
well as the elimination of duplicative overhead costs. Notably, we
began the closure of the WMS Waukegan, Illinois facility during the
second quarter and, as of today, it is operationally closed.  As a
result of cost-savings actions implemented through July 2015, we
now have implemented approximately $184 million of Bally-related
annual cost savings synergies, or nearly all of the $188 million in
annual savings that had been anticipated to be implemented by
December 31, 2015. As a result of accelerating cost savings actions
originally planned for 2016 into 2015, we are raising our
Bally-related cost savings target for 2015 to $200 million of
anticipated cost savings to be implemented."

Schweinfurth continued, "The benefit of these Bally-related
savings, as well as the savings realized from the earlier WMS- and
SHFL-related integration initiatives, is primarily reflected in the
$52.4 million year-over-year decrease in aggregate quarterly
selling, general and administrative expense and research and
development costs on a pro forma basis, notwithstanding $9.8
million of higher integration, acquisition, bad debt expense and
legal settlement costs, plus we've implemented cost savings in cost
of product sales and cost of services.  As a result of our cost
savings, second quarter 2015 AEBITDA margin increased to 38 percent
from 32 percent in the prior-year quarter."

The TCR reported on May 21, 2014, that Moody's Investors Service
downgraded Scientific Games Corporation's ("SGC") Corporate Family
Rating to 'B1'.  The downgrade reflects Moody's view that slower
than expected growth in SGC's Gaming and Instant Products segments
will cause Moody's adjusted leverage to exceed 6.0 times by the
end of 2014.

As reported by the TCR on Aug. 5, 2014, Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services lowered its corporate credit rating to 'B+' from 'BB-' on
Scientific Games Corp.

"The downgrade and CreditWatch placement follow Scientific Games'
announcement that it has agreed to acquire Bally Technologies for
$5.1 billion, including the refinancing of about $1.8 billion in
net debt at Bally," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Ariel
Silverberg.

Ernst & Young (Hellas) Certified Auditors-Accountants S.A., in
Athens, Greece, issued a "going concern" qualification on the
consolidated financial statements for the year ended Dec. 31, 2014,
citing that following the disposal of the Company's entire fleet in
early 2014 in the context of its restructuring plan, the Company
was unable to generate sufficient cash flow to meet its obligations
and sustain its continuing operations that raise substantial doubt
about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern.

                            About Sears

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

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

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

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

For the year ended Jan. 31, 2015, the Company reported a net loss
attributable to Holdings' shareholders of $1.68 billion compared to
a net loss attributable to Holdings' shareholders of $1.36 billion
for the year ended Feb. 1, 2014.  As of May 2, 2015, Sears Holdings
had $13.3 billion in total assets, $14.5 billion in total
liabilities, and a $1.20 billion total deficit.

                            *     *     *

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

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

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

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


SEARS HOLDINGS: Provides Update on Financial Performance
--------------------------------------------------------
Sears Holdings Corporation provided an update on its second quarter
performance, improved financial position and actions that enhance
its liquidity and business operations.

In summary, Holdings:

   * Continued to enhance the performance of its business and
     expect a fourth consecutive quarter of improved Adjusted
     EBITDA;

   * Completed an amendment and extension of its $3.275 billion
     domestic credit facility with approximately $2 billion
     maturing in 2020 and the remaining approximately $1.3 billion

     of the existing credit facility in place until April of 2016.
     This represents a significant milestone and provides the
     Company with a credit facility consistent with its needs,
     given its reduced reliance on inventory as a source of
     financing;

   * Substantially completed the capital structure adjustments the

     Company laid out in August 2014, including the domestic
     credit facility extension and the formation of Seritage
     Growth Properties, a recently formed independent publicly
     traded real estate investment trust, and realized $3 billion
     of proceeds from these REIT-related transactions, including
     the previously announced joint ventures with three leading
     mall owners and operators; and

   * At the end of the quarter, the Company expects approximately
     $1.2 billion in availability under its domestic credit
     facility and $1.8 billion in cash compared to $0.2 billion
     and $0.6 billion, respectively, in the prior year.

              Estimated Second Quarter Performance

The Company currently expects to experience a fourth consecutive
quarter of improved Adjusted EBITDA compared to the prior year
period.  The Company expects that, based on its current forecast,
its second quarter Adjusted EBITDA will range between $(189)
million and $(249) million, before an additional $26 million in
rent expense resulting from (i) the recent transaction with
Seritage and (ii) joint ventures entered into with General Growth
Properties, Inc., Simon Property Group and The Macerich Company, as
compared to domestic Adjusted EBITDA of $(298) million in the
second quarter of the prior year.

In addition, the Company expects to report a significant gain in
the second quarter due to the sale of assets to Seritage, which
will also trigger a significant tax benefit that would be realized
on the deferred taxes related to indefinite-life assets related to
the property sold to the REIT.  The Company currently expects the
gain to be approximately $1.4 billion, of which approximately $510
million will be reported in the second quarter of 2015 and the
balance of approximately $900 million will be deferred and
recognized over the term of the leases, and a tax benefit of
approximately $240 million.  The Company expects its reported net
income attributable to Holdings' shareholders for the quarter
ending August 1, 2015, will range between approximately $155
million and $205 million, or between $1.46 and $1.92 income per
diluted share, including the aforementioned gain and tax benefit,
but excluding any final accounting adjustments for the quarter.

Total comparable store sales for the QTD declined 10.6%, comprised
of decreases of 6.9% at Kmart and 13.9% at Sears Domestic.
Excluding the impact of the consumer electronics business, a
business the Company is altering to meet the changing needs of its
members, total comparable store sales would have declined 9.1%,
comprised of decreases of 5.4% and 12.5% at Kmart and Sears
Domestic, respectively.

         Financial Position and Actions To Improve Liquidity

On July 7, 2015, the Company completed its rights offering and
sale-leaseback transaction with Seritage.  As part of the
transaction, Holdings sold 235 real properties to Seritage along
with Holdings' 50% interest in joint ventures with each of General
Growth Properties, Inc., Simon Property Group and The Macerich
Company, which together hold an additional 31 properties.  Holdings
received aggregate gross proceeds from the transaction of $2.7
billion.  The properties currently operated as Sears- and
Kmart-branded stores were then leased back to Holdings.

At the end of the quarter, the Company expects total cash and
revolver availability of approximately $3 billion composed of
approximately $1.8 billion in cash plus availability under our
domestic credit facility of $1.2 billion.  Usage at the end of our
second quarter under our $3.275 billion domestic credit facility is
expected to be approximately $657 million, consisting entirely of
letters of credit outstanding, versus last year's total usage of
$2.0 billion, consisting of $1.4 billion of borrowings and letters
of credit outstanding of $646 million.

With the completion of the amendment and extension of the domestic
credit facility and the REIT transaction, the Company has
substantially enhanced its financial flexibility and achieved its
objective of reducing its reliance on inventory as a source of
financing.  The Company intends to continue taking significant
actions to alter its capital structure, as circumstances allow, to
position Holdings for success and profitability, which could
include further reductions in debt or changes in the composition of
its debt.

If the tender offer is not fully subscribed, unused amounts will be
available to purchase additional debt securities at the Company's
discretion.  The Company would recognize a $66 million reduction in
its annual cash interest expense if the maximum amount of notes is
tendered in the offer.

Consistent with the Company's objective to enhance the financial
flexibility of its capital structure, the Company intends to
continue its focus on executing its transformation from a
traditional store network-based retail business model to an
asset-light, member-centric retailer.

Shilo Inn, Twin Falls, LLC, and six affiliates filed a Chapter 11
petition (Bankr. C.D. Cal. Case No. 13-21601) on May 1, 2013.
Judge Richard M. Neiter presides over the case.  Shilo Inn, Twin
Falls, estimated assets of at least $10 million and debts of at
least $1 million.

Shilo Inn, Twin Falls; Shilo Inn, Nampa Blvd, LLC; Shilo Inn,
Newberg, LLC; Shilo Inn, Seaside East, LLC, Shilo Inn, Moses Lake,
Inc.; and Shilo Inn, Rose Garden, LLC each operates and owns a
hotel.  California Bank and Trust is the primary, senior secured
lender for each of the Debtors.

The Debtors sought Chapter 11 protection after CBT on May 1, 2013,
filed for receiverships in district court.

David B. Golubchick, Esq., Kurt Ramlo, Esq., and J.P. Fritz, Esq.,
at Levene, Neale, Bender, Yoo & Brill LLP, in Los Angeles,
represent the Debtors in their restructuring effort.

SIGNAL INT'L: Has Interim OK to Pay $250K to Critical Vendors
-------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Mary F. Walrath of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District
of Delaware gave Signal International, Inc., et al., interim
authority to pay the prepetition fixed, liquidated, and undisputed
claims of certain critical vendors in an amount not to exceed
$250,000.

In the ordinary course of their business, the Debtors purchase
goods and services from more than 600 third-party vendors.  Based
on their books and records and past experience, the Debtors
estimate that they have approximately $6 million in outstanding
prepetition trade payables.

As previously reported by The Troubled Company Reporter, the
Debtors seek authority, in their sole discretion, to pay
prepetition claims held by critical vendors on an interim basis in
the aggregate amount of $250,000, and on a final basis in the
aggregate amount of approximately $890,000.  The $890,000 trade
claims cap represents less than 16% of the Debtors' estimate of
aggregate prepetition trade claims.

The Debtors will use their commercially reasonable efforts to
condition payment of critical vendor claims upon each critical
vendor's agreement to continue supplying goods and services on
"customary trade terms."

A final hearing, if required, on the Motion will be held on Aug.
12, 2015, at 11:30 a.m. (ET).  If no objections are filed to the
Motion, the Court may enter the Final Order without further notice
or hearing.

SMILE BRANDS: Moody's Lowers CFR to Caa2, Outlook Negative
----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded Smile Brands Group Inc.'s
Corporate Family Rating to Caa2, its Probability of Default Rating
to Caa2-PD, and its senior secured bank credit facilities' rating
to Caa1 from B2.  The rating outlook is negative.

The rating action reflects the company's continued operating
performance weakness and the further deterioration of credit
metrics beyond Moody's previous expectations, attributable to a
challenging consumer spending environment and declining operating
margins resulting from higher operating costs.  Additionally,
Moody's has concerns about the sustainability of the company's
capital structure given its significant debt load and related
interest burden.

Following is a summary of Moody's rating actions.

Ratings downgraded:

Smile Brands Group Inc.:

Corporate Family Rating to Caa2 from Caa1
Probability of Default Rating to Caa2-PD from Caa1-PD
Senior secured credit facilities to Caa1 (LGD 3) from B2 (LGD 3)

The rating outlook is negative.

RATINGS RATIONALE

Smile Brands' Caa2 Corporate Family Rating reflects the company's
relatively small size, competitive challenges within certain key
markets, and the difficulties the company faces in turning its
operating performance around.  The rating also reflects Moody's
expectation that while the company's earnings erosion will
stabilize due to cost cutting initiatives, financial leverage will
likely remain very high, interest coverage weak, and free cash flow
will remain negative over the next 12 to 18 months, creating a high
degree of uncertainty that the company can sustain its existing
capital structure.  However, Moody's expects the company to be
successful in obtaining a sponsor equity infusion and a waiver or
an amendment to its credit facility financial covenants. The
ratings are supported by Smile Brands' strong market position as
one of the largest dental service organizations (DSO) in the United
States, maintaining leading competitive positions across many of
its primary markets.

Despite Moody's expectation that Smile Brands will obtain an equity
infusion, as well as a waiver or an amendment to its credit
facility financial covenants over the near-term, the negative
rating outlook reflects Moody's concerns that Smile Brands will
face challenges in stabilizing and improving operating performance.
The negative outlook also reflects Moody's expectation that the
company's credit metrics will remain constrained due to elevated
costs.

The ratings could be downgraded if the company's operating
performance or sources of liquidity weaken further, such that free
cash flow is expected to remain negative for an extended period or
if the likelihood of a debt restructuring elevates.

Given the near-term pressures facing the company, Moody's does not
foresee an upgrade of the rating over the next 12 months.  However,
the ratings could be upgraded if the company is able to improve
operating performance such that adjusted debt to EBITDA is
sustained below 7.0 times and generate positive free cash flow on a
sustained basis.  An upgrade would also require a strengthened
liquidity position, including increased assurance that the company
will remain in compliance with covenant requirements over a
sustained period.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Business and
Consumer Service Industry published in December 2014.  Other
methodologies used include Loss Given Default for Speculative-Grade
Non-Financial Companies in the U.S., Canada and EMEA published in
June 2009.

Headquartered in Irvine, California, Smile Brands Group Inc. is a
leading U.S. dental service organization ("DSO").  Through its
owned subsidiaries and affiliated professional corporations (PCs),
the company provides comprehensive business support services,
non-clinical personnel, facilities and equipment to dentists.
Dentists are at-will employees of the PCs, where the PCs own the
medical records, patient lists, and operating records.  Smile
Brands' is primarily owned by financial sponsor Welsh, Carson,
Anderson & Stowe ("WCAS"), and generates annual revenues of
approximately $500 million.



STELLAR BIOTECHNOLOGIES: Signs Collaboration Pact with Ostiones
---------------------------------------------------------------
Stellar Biotechnologies, Inc., has entered into a collaboration
agreement with Ostiones Guerrero SA de CV to secure a unique
strategic site in Baja California, Mexico, for the development of
an additional aquaculture locale and expansion of Stellar KLH
production to meet the increasing needs of its customers.

Stellar provides clinical-stage biotechnology companies with KLH,
an immune-stimulating protein that is an essential ingredient in a
number of human immunotherapies in various stages of clinical
development.  KLH can only be obtained from a scarce marine
mollusk, the Giant Keyhole Limpet, which is native to a limited
stretch of Pacific Ocean coastline.

Stellar and Ostiones both have expertise and specialization in
marine-based industries.  Stellar is the leader in the sustainable
manufacture of KLH for use in the pharmaceutical industry, with
proprietary aquaculture capabilities.  Ostiones is a Baja
California-based commercial shellfish aquaculture and fishing
corporation focused on seafood production and protection of
sensitive marine ecosystems, which holds federal permits to an
extensive Pacific marine habitat for limpet colonies.

Under the terms of the Agreement, Stellar and Ostiones will
collaborate on the design, expansion and development of marine
aquaculture resources and KLH production facilities in Baja
California, Mexico to provide, exclusively for Stellar, an
additional site for hatchery and maturation of keyhole limpets and
production of KLH.  The venture will provide Ostiones with access
to advanced aquaculture techniques, proprietary expertise, support
services and training that will form the basis for expanding its
seafood production business.

Additionally, the companies are joining forces to share their
vision of protecting the natural resources of the Pacific Ocean.
Stellar has developed a proprietary process for KLH harvesting that
does not harm the Giant Keyhole Limpets.  Similarly, Ostiones is
committed to sustaining ocean wildlife populations.  The companies
are committed to marine ecosystem sustainability as a commercial
priority.

"This collaboration has far-reaching, positive implications for
Stellar," said Frank Oakes, president and CEO of Stellar
Biotechnologies, Inc.  "In addition to the clear operational
security offered by a second site, the partnership with Ostiones
Guerrero provides Stellar the opportunity to extend our leadership
in the sustainable manufacture of KLH while ensuring protection of
a valuable ocean resource and natural habitat.  We expect demand
for reliable sources of KLH to grow, both from our existing
partners and the broader biotech industry, as the clinical use of
novel immunotherapies increases.  We believe this collaboration
will better position Stellar to accelerate its production strategy
to accommodate the anticipated growth in the industry."

"We are excited about the synergies and economic potential of this
alliance," added Reyes Guerrero Sandoval, president of Ostiones
Guerrero SA de CV.  "Stellar Biotechnologies' contributions
validate the importance of the marine resources in our region which
now includes marine biotechnology in the expanding markets for our
operations and for Baja California."

In June 2015, Ostiones leased to Stellar certain undeveloped land
to assess as a potential second manufacturing and production site
subject to a suitability study to be conducted over the next three
years.  Under the terms of the Agreement, Stellar will be
responsible for certain leasehold improvements and construction of
structures and utilities, to be owned by Stellar, at Ostiones’
Baja California, Mexico facility.  Ostiones will provide labor and
operational support, the reasonable costs of which will be
reimbursed by Stellar.  The companies expect to enter into separate
usage and supply agreements covering the use of site resources and
utilities such as seawater and power, and for the production of
keyhole limpets by Ostiones exclusively for Stellar.

Sullivan International Group, Inc. seeks permission from the Hon.
Laura S. Taylor of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern
District of California to employ Sullivan Hill Lewin Rez & Engel as
general bankruptcy counsel, effective April 6, 2015.

The Debtor requires Sullivan Hill to:

   (a) advise, consult with, and assist the Debtor with regard to
       its plan of reorganization or other means of satisfying
       creditors' claims;

   (b) evaluate, object to, or otherwise resolve claims against
       the estate;

   (c) commence, prosecute, and defend suits and adversary
       proceedings arising out of or relating to this case and
       relating to assets of this estate;

   (d) assist in representing the Debtor in hearings before this
       Court, including in particular hearings with respect to the

       Debtor's motions to use cash collateral; to obtain post-
       petition financing; to assume or reject executory contracts

       and unexpired leases; to approve sales of assets; and
       generally to represent the Debtor in all contested matters
       for the Court;

   (e) assist in and to render advice with respect to the
       preparation of contracts, monthly operating reports,
       accounts, applications, and orders; and

   (f) advise, consult with, and otherwise represent the Debtor in
       connection with such other matters as may be necessary for
       the duration of this bankruptcy case.

The Debtor desires to employ Sullivan Hill on an hourly basis.
Sullivan Hill will submit for the approval of the Court periodic
fee applications and requests for authorization for payment of fees
and costs in accordance with fee application procedures as may be
approved in the case based upon the normal hourly rates of the
attorneys and paralegals/legal assistants who provide services in
this matter.

Sullivan Hill will also be reimbursed for reasonable out-of-pocket
expenses incurred.

The Debtor paid Sullivan Hill a $69,944.50 Chapter 11 retainer. As
of the time of the filing of this Application, Sullivan Hill's
Chapter 11 retainer has been reduced to $49,944.50 because Sullivan
Hill drew $20,000 from its Chapter 11 retainer to pay the due
diligence deposit required by Federal National Commercial Credit.

TENET HEALTHCARE: Reports $61 Million Net Loss for Second Quarter
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Tenet Healthcare Corporation filed with the Securities and Exchange
Commission its quarterly report on Form 10-Q disclosing
a net loss attributable to the Company's common shareholders of $61
million on $4.4 billion of net operating revenues for the three
months ended June 30, 2015, compared to a net loss attributable to
the Company's common shareholders of $26 million on $4 billion of
net operating revenues for the same period in 2014.

For the six months ended June 30, 2015, the Company reported a net
loss attributable to the Company's shareholders of $14 million on
$8.9 billion of net operating revenues compared to a net loss
attributable to the Company's shareholders of $58 million on $7.9
billion of net operating revenues for the same period during the
prior year.

As of June 30, 2015, Tenet had $22.7 billion in total assets, $20.1
billion in total liabilities, $1.5 billion in redeemable
noncontrolling interests in equity of consolidated subsidiaries and
$1 billion in total equity.

Cash and cash equivalents were $299 million at June 30, 2015,
compared to $193 million at Dec. 31, 2014.

"This was another strong quarter for Tenet with EBITDA that
exceeded our expectations," said Trevor Fetter, chairman and chief
executive officer.  "We continued to focus on aggressive
implementation of our strategy to improve care delivery and more
closely align our business with key trends shaping the healthcare
system.  In our hospital business, we made progress on multiple
strategic partnerships that will help us achieve leadership
positions in our markets, as well as plans to divest facilities. We
also completed our joint venture with USPI, which makes us the
leader in the fast-growing ambulatory surgery sector.  We continue
to position Tenet as a partner of choice for not-for-profit health
systems, and we remain incredibly optimistic about the many
opportunities to grow with new and existing partners through our
acute care business, USPI and Conifer."

Tenet carries a 'B' IDR from Fitch Ratings, 'B' corporate credit
rating from Standard & Poor's Ratings Services and 'B1' Corporate
Family Rating from Moody's Investors Service.


TERRAFORM PRIVATE: S&P Assigns 'B' Corp. Credit Rating
------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it assigned its 'B'
corporate credit rating to TerraForm Private LLC.  The outlook is
stable.  At the same time, Standard & Poor's assigned its 'B+'
issue-level rating to subsidiary TerraForm AP Acquisition Holdings
LLC's $280 million senior secured term loan B due 2022.  The
recovery rating is '2', indicating that lenders can expect
meaningful (70% to 90%; in the upper half of the range) recovery if
a default occurs.

TerraForm Private was formed to own five operational wind projects
that it purchased from Atlantic Power Corp. in June 2015.  Sponsor
SunEdison Inc. intends to have TerraForm Private raise $280 million
with a term loan B, to refinance an existing bank loan. This,
alongside previously raised $170 million of preferred equity and
$75 million of common equity, financed the asset acquisition.

"We base the 'B' corporate credit rating on TerraForm Private on
the company's small size, exposure to wind resource volatility, and
pronounced asset concentration," said Standard & Poor's credit
analyst Nora Pickens.

The portfolio heavily depends on cash flow from two projects --
Canadian Hills Wind LLC and Meadow Creek Power Co. LLC -- which
together account for about 90% of EBITDA.  These weaknesses are
only partially offset by TerraForm Private's cash flow stability
stemming from long–term, fee-based power purchase agreements
(PPA) with highly rated counterparties.  Very high financial
leverage at the holding company, modest debt service coverage at
about 1.6x, and dependence on upstream dividends from assets with
structurally senior project-level debt also weigh on the rating.

The stable outlook on TerraForm Private reflects S&P's expectation
for minimal merchant price risk, stable cash flows generated from
long-term PPAs with investment-grade counterparties, adequate
liquidity, and EBITDA interest coverage of 1.5x to 2x.



TEXOMA PEANUT: Court Dismisses Reorganization Cases
---------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Tom R. Cornish of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Eastern District of Oklahoma granted Texoma Peanut Company, et
al.'s motion to dismiss their Chapter 11 cases.

According to a minute entry for the hearing held June 24, 2015, the
Debtors, and parties that objected to the motion to dismiss had
settled the matters and agreed to submit an agreed order on the
dismissal of the cases.

Parties that objected to the Debtors' motion included AG
Headquarters Peanuts LLC, creditor Oklahoma Workers' Compensation
Commission, creditor Worker's Compensation Self-insurance
Guaranty Fund Board.

The Oklahoma Workers' Compensation Commission and the
Self-Insurance Guaranty Fund Board jointly noted that the Debtors
are obligated under Oklahoma law to maintain workers' compensation
insurance.  They pointed out that in the motion, the Debtors make
no provision for the satisfaction of administrative claims such as
those of the Debtors' employees that arose during the postpetition
uninsured period.  According to these objectors, dismissing the
case would allow the Debtors to distribute the proceeds of their
liquidated assets as they and their secured lender see fit and
leave the Debtors' former employees unprotected.

Ag Headquarters Peanuts LLC, by and through its attorneys, Parker
Hurst & Burnett PLC and Rischard & Carsey, PLLC, in its objection,
argued that the Court must deny the motion to dismiss; and appoint
a trustee, or, in the alternative, enter an order continuing the
hearing on the motion until a final determination has been made on
AGHQ's application for administrative expenses.  AGHQ, an operator
of a "peanut buying point" that assisted Debtors with the operation
of their business during the bankruptcy, timely filed its
application for allowance and payment of administrative expense
claim on June 15, 2015, which sets forth AGHQ's basis for payment
and request for hearing.  The application sought $629,178 in
postpetition administrative expenses.

TIERRA DEL REY: US Trustee Unable to Form Creditors' Committee
--------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. trustee overseeing the Chapter 11 case of Tierra Del Rey
LLC said it wasn't able to form a committee of unsecured creditors
due to lack of interest of creditors eligible to serve on the
panel.

Official creditors' committees have the right to employ legal and
accounting professionals and financial advisors, at a debtor's
expense.  They may investigate the debtor's business and financial
affairs.  Importantly, official committees serve as fiduciaries to
the general population of creditors they represent.

TRUMP ENTERTAINMENT: Watchdog Challenges Sale of Golf Club
----------------------------------------------------------
Jacqueline Palank, writing for Dow Jones' Daily Bankruptcy Review,
reported that a federal bankruptcy watchdog is challenging the
proposed sale of the Trump International Golf Club in Puerto Rico,
including how the deal will affect the distressed island's
taxpayers.

According to the report, Acting U.S. Trustee Guy Gebhardt is urging
the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Puerto Rico to block the golf and
country club from moving forward with plans to sell itself to
OHorizons Global LLC for $2 million, subject to higher bids at a
court-overseen auction.

               About Trump Entertainment Resorts

Trump Entertainment Resorts Inc., owner of the Atlantic City
Boardwalk casinos that bear the name of Donald Trump, returned to
Chapter 11 bankruptcy (Bankr. D. Del. Case No. 14-12103) on Sept.
9, 2014, with plans to shutter its casinos.

TER and its affiliated debtors own and operate two casino hotels
located in Atlantic City, New Jersey.  TER said it will close the
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
thereof for procedural purposes only.  Judge Kevin Gross presides
over the Chapter 11 cases.

The Debtors have tapped Young, Conaway, Stargatt & Taylor, LLP, as
counsel; Stroock & Stroock & Lavan LLP, as co-counsel; Houlihan
Lokey Capital, Inc., as financial advisor; and Prime Clerk LLC, as
noticing and claims agent.

TER estimated $100 million to $500 million in assets as of the

VIVARO CORP: Leucadia Settlement Agreement Approved
---------------------------------------------------
U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Martin Glenn has approved the settlement
agreement between Vivaro Corp. and the Committee of Unsecured
Creditors and defendants Leucadia National Corporation; Baldwin
Enterprises, Inc.; BEI Prepaid, LLC; BEI Prepaid Holdings, LLC;
Phlcorp, Inc.; Ian Cumming; Joseph Steinberg; David Larsen; and Jim
Continenza.

Marcatel Com, S.A. de C.V., Gusma Properties, LP, Gusma Investment,
LP, Progress International, LLC, Unifica Contact Media S.A. de C.V.
and Gustavo M. de la Garza Ortega, Gustavo M. de la Garza Flores,
and Roberto Margain have earlier filed an objection to the motion
of the Committee and the Debtors to approve the Leucadia Settlement
Agreement.

Marcatel submits that the Leucadia Settlement should be denied.  As
an initial matter, the CRO did not have the requisite authority to
enter into the Leucadia Settlement.  The CRO is neither a trustee,
nor is he the Debtors’ board.  Indeed, he must act at the
direction of the Board and is to “serve at the pleasure of the
Board.”  As a matter of basic corporate governance, this fact
alone compels a finding that the Leucadia Settlement cannot be
approved with the Debtors as a party thereto.  Despite possible
arguments to the contrary, the Committee alone, without the
Debtors, does not have the authority to provide releases of the
Debtors’ causes of action, without the Debtors’ board’s
approval.  Similarly, although it has been somewhat clarified at a
recent status conference, to the extent the Court approves the
Leucadia Settlement over the Objection, any order approving the
Leucadia Settlement should make clear that it does not authorize
non-debtor releases of presently known or future direct claims that
the Objecting Parties may have against the Leucadia Parties.

Also, aside from the legal issues concerning the authority of the
CRO to enter into the Leucadia Settlement, the Objecting Parties
submit that the Leucadia Settlement falls below the lowest point in
the range of reasonableness, when considering the various relevant
factors under Second Circuit law.

--------------------------------------------------------------
Charlotte Ellen Salwasser and her affiliated debtors ask the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of California, Fresno
Division, for authority to privately sell 11 parcels of real
property, as well as personal property, free and clear of liens of
Central Valley Community Bank, to Troy Gillespie for an aggregate
purchase price of $7,300,000, with an opportunity to overbid.

The real and personal property subject of the sale consist of:

     (a) Real property owned by Charlotte Salwasser and George
James Salwasser, located in the City of Kerman, County of Fresno,
California, including Assessor's Parcel Numbers: 016-310-10;
016-310-31; 016-310-32; 016-320-05; 016-320-04S; 016-020-22S; and
016-020-23, including any community property interest held by
George Salwasser;

     (b) The growing crops and the personal property including,
bins and rolling stock, located at and owned by Salwasser Farms;

     (c) Real property belonging to Salwasser, Inc., consisting of
about more or less 60 acres of land improved by a raisin packing,
processing and dehydrating facility, located in Biola, County of
Fresno, State of California, and described as Assessor's Parcel
Numbers 016-320-06S, 016-020-21S, 016-310-20, and 016-310-21 and
personal property such as bins and dehydrator equipment.

     (d) Personal property owned by West Coast Growers, Inc.
associated with the operation of the Packing House, such as
equipment and bins, as well as the intellectual property rights in
the tradename "West Coast Growers."

The aggregate purchase price of $7,300,000 is to be paid as
follows:

     a. Deposit of $100,000 to be paid within five days of
execution and delivery of the Agreement to be held in trust in
connection with the escrow opened between the Sellers and Buyer at
Chicago Title Company, 7330 North Palm Avenue, Suite 101, Fresno,
California 93711; and

     b. At the closing, Gillespie will pay to the Sellers the total
amount of cash equal to the Purchase Price, plus all the cultural
and crop costs incurred by the Sellers between Jan. 1, 2015, to the
date of the close of escrow, adjusted by the Initial Deposit and
any other expenses, pro-rations set forth in the Agreement.

Any party wishing to overbid on the real and personal property must
perform and/or provide, among others, the following:

     1. Provide certified funds in the amount of $100,000 prior to
or at the time of the hearing on the sale motion.

     2. Proof in the form of a letter of credit, or some other
written pre-qualification for any financing that may be required to
complete the purchase of the real and personal property in an
amount sufficient to make payment in full to Sellers, including the
necessary overbid amount and a break-up fee to Gillespie of not
more than $75,000.

     3. Proof that any successful over bidder can and will close
the sale within 15 days of delivery of a certified copy of the
Court's order approving the sale.

     4. Execute an Asset Purchase Agreement with the Sellers within
five days of the entry of the Order.

     5. Any successful overbid will have the $100,000 deposit
applied to the successful overbid price.

     6. In the event a successful over bidder fails to execute an
APA within five days of entry of the Order and/or close the sale
within 15 days of delivery of the Order, the over bidder will
forfeit its Deposit as reasonable liquidated damages for failure to
perform.

     7. All overbids must be in the minimum amount of $5,000, plus
the Break-Up Fee.

Hagop T. Bedoyan, Esq., at Klein, Denatale, Goldner, Cooper,
Rosenlieb & Kimball, LLP, in Fresno, California, tells the Court
that the sale of the real and personal property is in the best
interest of Debtors' estates because the real and personal property
is fully encumbered and subject to perfected security interests and
multiple deeds of trust held by Central Valley Community Bank, and
the value of the real and personal property would decrease if a
prospective buyer was not able to obtain the use of the Packing
House in time for the 2015 harvest and packing season. Mr. Bedoyan
relates that while the amounts owed to CVCB exceed the purchase
price, CVCB is in favor of the sale of the real and personal
property on the terms provided in the Agreement, and has agreed to
permit a surcharge of its collateral to pay Chapter 11
administrative expenses in the following amounts for the following
cases:

     a. Charlotte Salwasser's Case - no surcharge
     b. WCG Case - $140,000
     c. Salwasser, Inc. Case - $65,000

Mr. Bedoyan tells the Court that while CVCB has agreed to the
surchage, the parties agree that should the approved and paid
Chapter 11 administrative expenses be less than the $140,000 in the
WCG case or the $65,000 in the Salwasser, Inc. case, surplus funds
will be paid over to CVCB in satisfaction of its claims.  He adds
that it is in the best interest for the real and personal property
to be sold on or before August 30, 2015, in order for a prospective
buyer to utilize the facility in time for the grape harvest and the
optimum raisin processing times.

The Debtors' motion is scheduled for hearing on Aug. 20, 2015 at
2:30 p.m.

The Debtors' Motion is supported by the declarations of: (a)
Charlotte E. Salwasser, president of Salwasser, Inc.; (b) Terence
J. Long, President and Chief Executive Officer of West Coast
Growers, Inc.; and (c) James E. Salven, a Certified Public
Accountant and the Chief Restructuring Officer for the Chapter 11
estate of Charlotte Salwasser.

company's successful integration of the Canadian mines acquired in

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


WHITTEN FOUNDATION: US Trustee to Schedule Another 341 Meeting
--------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. trustee overseeing Whitten Foundation's Chapter 11 case
adjourned the meeting of creditors to another date, which is yet to
be determined by the agency.

Following the U.S. trustee's opportunity to review Whitten
Foundation's schedules of assets and liabilities, the meeting was
adjourned without further appearance by Whitten Foundation's
representative, according to a filing with the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the Western District of Louisiana.

                      About Whitten Foundation

Whitten Foundation owns and operates two apartment complexes
located in the State of Louisiana.  Whitten Foundation sought
Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection (Bankr. W.D. La. Case No.
15-20237) in Lake Charles, Louisiana, on March 31, 2015.  The
Debtor estimated $10 million to $50 million in assets and debt.

Judge Robert Summerhays presides over the case.  The Debtor has
tapped Gerald J. Casey, Esq., in Lake Charles, Louisiana, as its
counsel.



WHITTEN FOUNDATION: US Trustee Unable to Form Creditors' Committee
------------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. trustee overseeing Whitten Foundation's Chapter 11 case
said it wasn't able to form a committee of unsecured creditors due
to insufficient number of creditors willing to serve on the
committee.

Official creditors' committees have the right to employ legal and
accounting professionals and financial advisors, at a debtor's
expense.  They may investigate the debtor's business and financial
affairs.  Importantly, official committees serve as fiduciaries to
the general population of creditors they represent.

YELLOWSTONE MOUNTAIN: 9th Circuit Sanctions Blixseth Lawyer
-----------------------------------------------------------
The Associated Press reported that an appellate court ordered
sanctions on Aug. 4 for Yellowstone Club co-founder Tim Blixseth
and one of his attorneys for filing a frivolous appeal after a
failed effort to have a Montana bankruptcy judge removed from his
case.

According to the report, a three-judge panel of the Ninth U.S.
Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Mr. Blixseth and attorney
Michael Flynn of Rancho Santa Fe, California, must pay attorney
fees and costs incurred by Yellowstone Club creditors who argued
against Mr. Blixseth's appeal.

[*] Emissions Rules Could Push More Coal Producers to Ch. 11
------------------------------------------------------------
Lisa Allen, writing for The Deal, reported that unless out-of-court
restructurings for Arch Coal Inc. and possibly Peabody Energy Corp.
gain traction, they could be the next two coal producers to file
for bankruptcy protection as final regulatory rules requiring the
reduction of carbon emissions by 32% from 2005 levels could finish
the demolition job started by depressed prices and sluggish
demand.

According to the report, on Aug. 3, the federal Environmental
Protection Agency unveiled the final version of the Clean Power
Plan and, perhaps not coincidentally, the largest U.S. coal
producer, Alpha Natural Resources Inc., filed for Chapter 11 in the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Virginia in
Richmond, leaving industry watchers wondering if that was the last
domino to fall, or if there will be more filings to come.

                            *********

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.
