AK STEEL: Moody's Confirms B3 CFR; Outlook Negative
---------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service confirmed AK Steel Corporation's B3
corporate family rating and B3-PD probability of default rating.
At the same time Moody's confirmed the company's B2 senior secured
notes rating, Caa1 senior unsecured notes rating, the Caa1 Revenue
bond ratings and the (P) Caa1 rating for senior unsecured debt.
The speculative grade liquidity rating remains unchanged at SGL-3.
The outlook is negative.  This concludes the review for downgrade
initiated on Oct. 8, 2015.

The confirmation of AK Steel's ratings reflects Moody's expectation
that the company's performance will benefit from a slowly improving
cost profile, improved operating efficiencies and good contract
position with its automotive customers, although the company's
metrics remain weak for the rating.  The company's metrics have
gradually improved compared to fiscal year 2014. AK Steel's
leverage position was heightened at 13.6x in 2014 due to elevated
debt levels to fund the acquisition of Dearborn combined with low
operating levels associated with the severe winter weather
conditions that negatively affected first half 2014 performance
causing reduced production levels and higher transportation,
natural gas and electricity costs.  The company reported a stronger
performance in the third quarter ended Sept. 30, 2015 and leverage
has moderated to 8.4x for the twelve months ended Sept. 30, 2015.
Moody's do not expect improvement from this level at year-end
2015.

RATINGS RATIONALE

AK's B3 CFR reflects the weak debt protection metrics and high
leverage evidenced by the company as challenging conditions in the
U.S. steel industry continue to negatively impact the level of
operating improvement that can be achieved and sustained.  The
rating considers AK Steel's currently low capacity utilization
rates and relatively high costs as a percentage of sales given the
less than optimal fixed cost absorption capability.  However, the
rating anticipates that utilization rates and fixed cost absorption
will improve in 2016 given the company's actions to idle capacity
in its Ashland facility, lower input costs for iron ore and coking
coal and its continued ability to drive costs out. AK's performance
through 2016 is expected to show modest improvement and have higher
operating levels at Dearborn and Middletown driven by the continued
strength in the automotive industry and gradual improving
fundamentals in manufacturing and commercial construction.

The rating also acknowledges the pending trade cases for coated
steel, cold rolled steel and hot rolled steel, the outcome of which
will have an impact on industry performance, including that of AK
Steel.  The B3 CFR considers AK's position as a mid tier steel
producer.  The company's business mix includes a meaningful level
of value added products, including coated, electrical and stainless
products, as well as its strong contracted position are supporting
factors in the rating.  It also recognizes the company's ability to
maintain an adequate liquidity profile even if steel prices and
shipment levels show no meaningful improvement in 2016.

The SGL-3 speculative grade liquidity rating reflects our view that
AK Steel will maintain adequate liquidity over the next four
quarters.  Moody's forecasts that the company will continue to
operate with lower than previous historical cash balances but that
the company will evidence a decreasing level of cash burn that can
be accommodated within its liquidity profile due to the absence of
meaningful debt maturities over the next 12-18 months, The
reduction of required pension contributions resulting from the
passage of Highway and Transportation Funding Act of 2014 will
benefit the overall liquidity profile.  Liquidity is supported by a
$1.5 billion asset based revolving credit facility (ABL) expiring
in March 2019, that is guaranteed by AK Steel Holding Corporation,
AK Tube LLC and AK Steel Properties.  Availability under the
revolver at September 30, 2015 was roughly $748 million after
considering amounts borrowed and outstanding letters of credit.
Under the ABL facility the company is required to satisfy a minimum
fixed charge coverage ratio of 1.0x, which is tested only if
availability drops to less than $150 million.  Moody's expects that
the ABL will have sufficient availability over the next four
quarters such that the covenant will not be tested.  Moody's note
that downward pressure on the company's liquidity profile could
occur should borrowings under the ABL exceed our current
expectations or should steel prices drop and be sustained below
current levels such that the borrowing base capacity shrinks.
Moody's do not consider the company's to have a significant source
of alternate liquidity since current assets are pledged to the ABL
and the remaining assets are pledged to the secured notes.

The negative outlook reflects the challenges facing AK Steel as
steel industry conditions remain difficult and capacity utilization
rates low.  The outlook captures the potential for industry
conditions to weaken further and the company not be able to improve
its performance.  The outlook also considers the uncertainty with
respect to the ultimate resolution of the pending trade cases.  In
addition although certain input costs are moderating, AK Steel
continues to have a relatively high cost base.

Given the company's weak metrics and anticipated slow improvement
trends over the next 12 to 18 months, an upgrade is unlikely.  The
rating could be downgraded should the company's liquidity position
deteriorate materially due to weak operating performance and cash
burn, and improving trends in the EBIT margin, EBIT-to-interest
ratio, and debt/EBITDA ratio to at least 3.0%, 1.5x and 5.5x
respectively not be evidenced.

Headquartered in West Chester, Ohio, AK Steel Corporation (AK
Steel) ranks as a middle tier integrated steel producer in the
United States, operating steelmaking and finishing plants in
Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, Michigan and Pennsylvania.  The company
produces flat-rolled carbon steels, including coated, cold-rolled
and hot-rolled products, as well as specialty stainless and
electrical steels.  Principal end markets include automotive, steel
service centers, appliance, industrial machinery, infrastructure,
construction and distributors and converters. Through its AK Coal
Resources Inc. subsidiary, the company has interests in
metallurgical coal production.  AK Steel no longer has an ownership
interest in Magnetation LLC ( was 49.9%) following Magnetation's
bankruptcy filing in May 2015 as a result of the collapse in iron
ore prices.  AK Steel took a $256.3 million impairment charge on
the investment, has no further obligations to Magnetation but
continues to purchase pellets under the purchase agreement.

Revenues for the twelve months ending Sept. 30, 2015, were
approximately $7 billion and steel shipments were approximately 7
million tons, including tons from the 2014 acquisition of certain
assets of Severstal North America from OAO Severstal for $700
million including the steel assets located in Dearborn, Michigan
and certain joint venture interests.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Global Steel
Industry published in October 2012.

ARAMID ENTERTAINMENT: Files Full-Payment Liquidating Plan
---------------------------------------------------------
Aramid Entertainment Fund Limited, et al., have proposed a Joint
Liquidating Plan that promises to return 100 cents on the dollar to
holders of allowed claims.

In the Chapter 11 cases, the Plan contemplates a liquidation of
each of the Debtors and is, therefore, referred to as a "plan of
liquidation."  The primary objective of the Plan is to maximize the
value of the ultimate recoveries to all creditors and interest
holders on a fair and equitable basis in accordance with the
priorities established by the Bankruptcy Code.

The Plan may settle, compromise or otherwise dispose of certain
claims and Interests on terms that the Debtors believe to be fair
and reasonable and in the best interests of the Debtors' respective
estates, creditors and interest holders.  The Plan provides for,
among other things:

  (a) the establishment of the Distribution Trust to take
possession of the Debtors' remaining assets and then distribute the
assets of the Distribution Trust to the holders of Allowed Claims
and Interests;

  (b) rejection of all unexpired executory Contracts and Unexpired
Leases to which any Debtor is a party that were not previously
assumed and assigned or rejected (subject to certain limited
exceptions); and

  (c) certain other transactions to effect the Plan.

Under the Plan, holders of secured claims, if any, against AEF and
$6 million against Aramid Liquidating Trust, Ltd. ("ALTL"), are
unimpaired.  Unsecured creditors with claims estimated at $7.5
million against AEF, and $6 million against ALTL are also estimated
to have a 100% recovery.  The third debtor, Aramid Entertainment,
Inc. ("AEI"), believes it has no creditors.  Holders of Class A
shares of AEF won't receive anything and are deemed to reject the
Plan.   Holders of Class L shares in ALTL are projected to receive
$975,000 to $6,050,000 depending largely on amounts of claims
allowed.  Holders of the equity interests in AEI will receive $0 to
$52,000.

Geoff Varga and Jess Shakespeare, together, will serve as the
initial Distribution Trustee.  The Distribution Trustee will be
formally identified through the filing of Exhibit III.C.3 to the
Plan no later than 10 days prior to the Confirmation Hearing.

As of the date of this Disclosure Statement, 88 claims had been
filed against the Debtors, which asserted (including duplicate
claims but ignoring unliquidated claims) (a) over $135 million in
Claims against AEF; (b) over $91 million in claims against ALTL;
and (c) over $61 million in claims against AEI.  Approximately
three claims relating to prepetition taxes owed by the Debtors were
filed in the alleged amount of $2,246,780 (including duplicate
claims).  One alleged secured claim in the approximate amount of
$1,199,375 was filed.  The Debtors believe that they have valid
objections to many of the claims that have been filed and, thus,
the ultimate allowed amount of the claims will be significantly
less than the asserted amounts (which include duplicate claims).

The Debtors' estimate that a Chapter 7 trustee would incur 20% more
in costs of liquidation than would the Debtors under the Plan.

ATLANTIC & PACIFIC: Food Bazaar to Acquire Assets for $8.79-Mil.
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company Inc. received court
approval to sell its assets to Food Bazaar for $8.787 million.

The order, issued by U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Robert Drain, allowed
the company to sell the assets, including leases for its stores
located at 211 Elmora Avenue, Elizabeth, and at 425 Anderson
Avenue, Fairview, in New Jersey.

Food Bazaar offered $5.746 million for the assets used in operating
the company's Elizabeth store.  Meanwhile, it offered $3.041
million for the other store.

Food Bazaar emerged as the winning bidder at a court-supervised
auction, beating out rival bidders Lemes Supermarkets LLC and Key
Food Stores Co-Operative Inc., according to court filings.

                       About Atlantic & Pacific

Based in Montvale, New Jersey, The Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea
Company, Inc., and its affiliates are one of the nation's oldest
leading supermarket and food retailers, operating approximately 300
supermarkets, beer, wine, and liquor stores, combination food and
drug stores, and limited assortment food stores across six
Northeastern states.  The primary retail operations consist of
supermarkets operated under a variety of well known trade names, or
"banners," including A&P, Waldbaum's, SuperFresh, Pathmark, Food
Basics, The Food Emporium, Best Cellars, and A&P Liquors.   The
Company employs approximately 28,500 employees, over 90% of whom
are members of one of twelve local unions whose members are
employed by the Debtors under the authority of 35 separate
collective bargaining agreements.

Then with 429 stores, A&P and its affiliates filed Chapter 11
petitions (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 10-24549) on Dec. 12, 2010, and
in 2012 emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy as a privately held
company with 320 supermarkets.

On July 19, 2015, with 300 stores, A&P and 20 affiliated debtors
each filed a Chapter 11 petition (Bankr. S.D.N.Y.) after reaching
deals for the going concern sales of 120 stores.  The Debtors are
seeking joint administration under Case No. 15-23007.

As of Feb. 28, 2015, the Debtors reported total assets of $1.6
billion and liabilities of $2.3 billion.

The Debtors tapped Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP as counsel, Evercore
Group L.L.C., as investment banker, FTI Consulting, Inc., as
financial advisor, Hilco Real Estate, LLC, as real estate advisor,
and Prime Clerk LLC, as claims and noticing agent.

Judge Robert D. Drain of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern
District of New York issued an order directing joint administration
of the Chapter 11 cases of The Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea
Company, Inc., and its debtor affiliates under lead case no.
15-23007.


ATLANTIC & PACIFIC: To Sell Assets to Fransula for $6.79 Million
----------------------------------------------------------------
A federal judge approved A&P Real Property LLC's three separate
sale agreements with Fransula Foods LLC.

Under the agreements, Fransula Foods will purchase A&P's assets for
a total of $6.786 million.  The assets include leases on two A&P
stores in Paterson and Passaic, New Jersey, and a store located in
Brooklyn, New York.

Fransula Foods won the auction for the assets conducted in October.
It beat out three rival bidders, including Key Food Stores
Co-Operative Inc.

The sale transactions were approved by U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Robert
Drain who oversees the Chapter 11 case of A&P, an affiliate of
Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company Inc.

                       About Atlantic & Pacific

Based in Montvale, New Jersey, The Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea
Company, Inc., and its affiliates are one of the nation's oldest
leading supermarket and food retailers, operating approximately 300
supermarkets, beer, wine, and liquor stores, combination food and
drug stores, and limited assortment food stores across six
Northeastern states.  The primary retail operations consist of
supermarkets operated under a variety of well known trade names, or
"banners," including A&P, Waldbaum's, SuperFresh, Pathmark, Food
Basics, The Food Emporium, Best Cellars, and A&P Liquors.   The
Company employs approximately 28,500 employees, over 90% of whom
are members of one of twelve local unions whose members are
employed by the Debtors under the authority of 35 separate
collective bargaining agreements.

Then with 429 stores, A&P and its affiliates filed Chapter 11
petitions (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 10-24549) on Dec. 12, 2010, and
in 2012 emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy as a privately held
company with 320 supermarkets.

On July 19, 2015, with 300 stores, A&P and 20 affiliated debtors
each filed a Chapter 11 petition (Bankr. S.D.N.Y.) after reaching
deals for the going concern sales of 120 stores.  The Debtors are
seeking joint administration under Case No. 15-23007.

As of Feb. 28, 2015, the Debtors reported total assets of $1.6
billion and liabilities of $2.3 billion.

The Debtors tapped Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP as counsel, Evercore
Group L.L.C., as investment banker, FTI Consulting, Inc., as
financial advisor, Hilco Real Estate, LLC, as real estate advisor,
and Prime Clerk LLC, as claims and noticing agent.

Judge Robert D. Drain of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern
District of New York issued an order directing joint administration
of the Chapter 11 cases of The Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea
Company, Inc., and its debtor affiliates under lead case no.

BALL CORP: Moody's Confirms Ba1 CFR & Rates New EUR1.5BB Notes Ba1
------------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service confirmed the Ba1 Corporate Family
Rating, Ba1-PD Probability of Default Rating and Ba1 existing
senior notes of Ball Corporation.  Moody's also assigned a Ba1
rating to the proposed EUR1,500 million senior notes due December
2022.  The ratings outlook is stable.  The proceeds from the new
notes will be used to acquire Rexam PLC as well as pay fees and
expenses associated with the transaction.  This concludes the
review for possible downgrade initiated on Feb. 19, 2015, when Ball
announced that it had offered to acquire Rexam PLC in a cash and
stock transaction.

The proceeds from the proposed notes will be placed in escrow until
the Rexam acquisition receives final regulatory approval (expected
in 2Q16).  Ball will use the proceeds along with borrowings under
its bridge loan or additional borrowings and cash on hand to pay
the cash portion of the purchase price for Rexam plus related fees
and expenses.  If the Rexam acquisition is not finalized by Nov.
15, 2016, the company will redeem the outstanding amount on all the
proposed notes at the issue price plus accrued interest from the
issue date.

Moody's took these actions:

Ball Corporation

   -- Confirmed Corporate Family Rating, Ba1
   -- Confirmed Probability of Default Rating, Ba1-PD
   -- Confirmed $2,250 million Senior Secured Multi-currency
      Revolving Credit Facility due February 2018, Ba1/LGD 4
   -- Confirmed $750 million Senior Unsecured Notes due March
      2022, Ba1/LGD 4
   -- Confirmed $1,000 million Senior Unsecured Notes due November

      2023, Ba1/LGD 4
   -- Confirmed $1,000 million Senior Unsecured Notes due July
      2025, Ba1/LGD 4
   -- Assigned EUR1,500 million Senior Unsecured Notes due
      Dec. 2022, Ba1/LGD4

The ratings outlook is stable.

The ratings are subject the transaction closing as proposed and the
receipt and review of the final documentation.

RATINGS RATIONALE

The confirmation of Ball's Ba1 corporate family rating reflects the
anticipated benefits from the acquisition, projected improvements
in operating results from various sources and managements' pledge
to direct all free cash flow to debt reduction until credit metrics
are restored to pre-acquisition levels.  While pro forma leverage
is high at well over 5.0 times including projected divestitures,
Ball is expected to reduce leverage to under 4.0 times by the end
of 2017 (the acquisition is projected to close in early 2Q16).  The
combined entity is expected to benefit from projected synergies of
$300 million, various cost saving initiatives and new contracted
business.  Ball is also expected to benefit from the elimination of
several onetime charges, various in-process cost saving initiatives
and the ability to hedge aluminum premiums going forward.  Ball
will also benefit from greater pro forma scale and the elimination
of a major competitor.  Pro forma free cash flow is strong despite
the projected drag of signifcant costs to achieve synergies and
restructuring over the next 24 months.  Management has pledged to
direct all free cash flow to debt reduction post transaction and
refrain from further aggressive financial actions until metrics are
restored to their pre-acquisition levels.  The company's management
has a history of strong execution and have built-up credibility
over the years.

Ball's Ba1 Corporate Family Rating reflects the company's stable
profitability, well-consolidated industry structure with
long-standing competitive equilibrium and scale.  The Ba1 rating
also reflects the company's high percentage of long-term contracts
with strong cost pass-through provisions, geographic
diversification and continued emphasis on innovation and product
diversification.

The ratings are constrained by Ball's aggressive financial policy,
high pro forma leverage and concentration of sales.  The ratings
are also constrained by a primarily commoditized product line.

The ratings or outlook could be downgraded should an acquisition,
new shareholder initiative or exogenous shock impair cash
generation.  The failure of the deal to close as projected or the
company to achieve the projected improvements in credit metrics or
a deterioration in the operating and competitive environment could
also result in a downgrade.  Specifically, the ratings could be
downgraded if adjusted total debt-to-EBITDA rises remains above 4.0
times, funds from operations-to-debt remains below 18% and/or
EBITDA-to-interest expense remains below 5.5 times.

Ball's financial aggressiveness is the primary impediment to an
upgrade.  An upgrade in ratings would require a commitment to
maintain less aggressive financial policies or significantly more
cushion within the contemplated higher rating category.
Additionally, an upgrade would require an investment grade capital
structure and continued stability in the competitive and operating
environment.  Specifically, the rating could be upgraded if
adjusted total debt-to-EBITDA improved to less than 3.25 times,
funds from operations-to-debt improved to over 22% and
EBITDA-to-interest expense improved to over 6.25 times on a
sustainable basis.

Broomfield, Colorado-based Ball Corporation is a manufacturer of
metal packaging, primarily for beverages, foods and household
products, and a supplier of aerospace and other technologies and
services to government and commercial customers.  The packaging
business generates approximately 90% of revenue, with the aerospace
business contributing the balance.  Ball is one of the world's
largest beverage can producers, with leading positions in North
America and Europe.  The company reports in four segments including
metal beverage packaging Americas and Asia, metal beverage
packaging Europe, metal food and household products packaging
Americas and aerospace and technologies.  Revenue for the twelve
month period ended Sept. 30, 2015, totaled approximately $8.2
billion.  Pro forma for the proposed Rexam acquisition, revenue is
approximately $12 billion with approximately 92% generated from
packaging.



BALL CORP: S&P Assigns 'BB+' Rating on New Sr. Unsecured Notes
--------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it has assigned its
'BB+' issue rating to the proposed senior unsecured notes of Ball
Corp. (BB+/Negative/--).  S&P also assigned a recovery rating of
'3', reflecting its expectation of recovery at the higher end of
the 50%-70% range in the event of a default.

S&P expects the company to issue at least EUR1.5 billion of notes
in three tranches, with maturities in 2020, 2020, and 2023.  The
exact terms and timing of the offering will depend upon market
conditions and other factors.

Ball will place the proceeds from the proposed notes in escrow,
since it intends to use the proceeds, along with borrowings under
its bridge loan and cash on hand, to pay the cash portion of the
purchase price of Rexam PLC, plus related fees and expenses.  The
proposed issuance is not conditional to Ball's completion of the
Rexam acquisition, and is expected to be launched before that
transaction.  If the Rexam acquisition is not finalized by
Nov. 15, 2016, Ball will redeem the outstanding amount on all the
proposed notes at the issue price plus accrued interest from the
issue date.

Until the Rexam acquisition closes, S&P's issue and recovery
ratings on Ball Corp.'s existing debt remain unchanged.  However,
after the transaction closes S&P would expect the recovery
prospects on Ball's senior unsecured notes to move toward the
higher end of the 50%-70% range because S&P would revise its
default EBITDA multiple to 6.5x from 6.0x.  The higher multiple
would be to take into account the combined Ball-Rexam's enhanced
scale of operations, market position, and resiliency of earnings.
In S&P's view, these factors would afford the combined company a
higher enterprise value than that of Ball as a stand-alone company.
The higher multiple would also be commensurate with that for
Ball's packaging sector peers Reynolds Group Holdings Ltd., Crown
Holdings Inc., and Sealed Air Corp.

RECOVERY ANALYSIS

Key analytical factors:

   -- S&P simulates a default in 2020 following the completion of
      the Rexam acquisition in 2016 and estimate the company's
      gross value-given default at $8.45 billion.  S&P assumes
      U.S. entities will represent 45% of the value, with non-U.S.

      subsidiaries representing 55% (15% of which is at Ball's
      Brazilian operations).

   -- S&P's recovery analysis takes into account the lack of a
      priority claim on the value of the U.S. operations by the
      senior secured credit facility relative to the senior
      unsecured notes.  This is because all of Ball's domestic
      entities are borrowers or guarantors on both classes of
      debt, but these entities do not pledge any operating assets
      as collateral.

   -- Despite the weak collateral package, the secured credit
      facility benefits from a pledge of 65% of the foreign
      equity.  Further, S&P assumes the revolving facility's size
      at default stays at the current $2.25 billion and is 85%
      drawn.  The documentation for Ball's previous notes issue
      stipulated that the revolving facility was permanently
      reduced to $2.25 billion from $3 billion, although potential

      further reductions are at the company's discretion.  S&P's
      assumptions also reflect a mandatory reduction in the bridge

      loan due to the notes issuances.  S&P assumes this debt is
      refinanced with $3.35 billion in prepayable secured term
      loans.

   -- Using these assumptions, S&P estimates that the collateral
      covers roughly 52% of the secured facility.  The large
      proportion of unpledged value would be sufficient to provide

      66% coverage of the unsecured claims, including the notes
      and the deficiency claim on the secured loan.  The secured
      lenders' share of the unpledged value (from the deficiency
      claim) would push the secured lenders' recovery to about
      84%.

Simulated default and valuation assumptions

   -- Simulated year of default: 2020
   -- EBITDA at emergence: $1.3 bil.
   -- EBITDA multiple: 6.5x

Simplified waterfall

   -- Net enterprise value (after 5% admin. costs): $8,027 mil.
   -- Valuation split (U.S./non-U.S./Brazilian): 45%/40%/15%
   -- Value available to secured creditors (collateral/no
      collateral): $2,738 mil./$1,711 mil.
   -- Secured first-lien debt: $5,314 mil.
      -- Recovery expectations: 70%-90% (higher half of the range)
   -- Total value available to unsecured claims: $4,701 mil.
   -- Senior unsecured notes: $4,501 mil.
   -- Deficiency claim on the secured debt: $2,576 mil.
      -- Recovery expectations: 50%-70% (higher half of the range)

Notes: All debt amounts above include six months of prepetition
interest.  S&P assumes accounts receivable securitizations total
about $86 million and treat these as priority claims.  S&P also
adjusts its valuation for pension deficits of $300 million at U.S.
subsidiaries and $200 million at foreign subsidiaries (this
represents roughly 50% of the underfunded amounts).



BEACON ROOFING: S&P Reinstates 'BB+' Rating on Term Loan B

Standard & Poor's Ratings Services has reinstated its 'BB+' and
'B+' issue-level ratings and '1' and '5' recovery ratings on Beacon

2015.

BULLIONDIRECT INC: Committee Wants Case Converted to Chapter 7
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors in the Chapter 11
case of BullionDirect, Inc., asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Western District of Texas to convert the Chapter 11 case to one
under Chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code.

The Committee noted that monthly operating reports confirm that the
case is nearing administrative insolvency.  Professional fees on
the Debtor's side alone were close to $160,000 as of the end of
September.

No restructuring plan has been filed.  No draft of a plan has been
shared with the Committee.  Committee counsel fees are more than
$20,000 and rising because the Debtor has refused to cooperate with
the Committee.

                           About BullionDirect

CEQUEL DATA: S&P Affirms 'B' Corp. Credit Rating
------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it has affirmed its 'B'
corporate credit rating on St. Louis-based Cequel Data Centers L.P.
The rating outlook is stable.

At the same time, S&P affirmed its 'B+' issue-level rating on the
company's $550 million first-lien term loan (including a $220
million incremental issuance) due 2021, and its 'CCC+' issue-level
rating on the company's $180 million second-lien term loan
(including a $90 million incremental issuance) due 2022.

The 'B' corporate credit rating reflects the company's highly
leveraged pro forma adjusted debt to EBITDA of about 7.3x, up from
S&P's previous forecast of 7.0x for 2015, primarily due to the
incremental term loans.  S&P expects leverage to improve with the
realization of cost synergies and a decline in capital expenditures
as a percentage of revenues, which were elevated in 2015 at
approximately $100 million pro forma for the acquisition.

"From a business risk perspective, we believe the acquisition of
Windstream's data center assets benefits the company's geographic
diversity and product offerings, growing its presence in the South,
strengthening its position in the Northeast, and increasing its
more value-added managed and cloud services revenue," said Standard
& Poor's credit analyst William Savage.

S&P's assessment of the company's business risk profile further
reflects the company's relatively small scale despite the
acquisition, exposure to economically sensitive small-business
customers, and, in S&P's view, long-term industry risks around
supply and demand dynamics, especially for more commodity-like
colocation services.  The company's good revenue visibility
provided by multiyear contracts and its focus on less competitive
second-tier markets somewhat offset these risks.  In addition,
although S&P believes small-business customers could be subject to
higher churn in an economic downturn, it also believes these
customers are further behind on the IT outsourcing curve,
potentially providing a longer tail of growth within colocation
services.

Following the acquisition, Cequel will operate 29 data centers in
15 markets, with concentration primarily in the Mid-Atlantic
region, Texas, and the Pacific Northwest.  With the exception of
Dallas and Chicago, the company's second-tier market focus
generally provides more favorable competitive dynamics.

The stable rating outlook reflects S&P's belief that Cequel and its
wholly owned subsidiary, TierPoint LLC, will maintain adequate
liquidity over the near term, despite S&P's expectation that
elevated capital expenditures to support expansion activity will
lead to negative FOCF through 2016.  In addition, healthy demand
for data center colocation space and managed services should result
in double-digit revenue growth over the next few years, leading to
leverage declining below 7x in 2016.

S&P could lower the rating over the next 12 months if annualized
trends soften because of increased churn and intensifying
competitive pressure, causing leverage to remain above 7x on a
sustained basis.  Alternatively, S&P could lower the rating if
liquidity became pressured from ongoing negative FOCF in
conjunction with reduced borrowing availability under its revolving
credit facility.

An upgrade is unlikely in the near term, as it would require an
assessment that the sponsor's financial policies would support
improved credit quality, including positive FOCF and leverage
reduction to below 5x on a sustained basis.



COLLINS & AIKMAN: Elmira Property Consent Decree w/ Dobbas Granted
------------------------------------------------------------------
Judge William B. Shubb of the United States District Court for the
Eastern District of California granted the motion filed by the
California Department of Toxic Substances Control and the Toxic
Substances Control Account seeking approval of a proposed Consent
Decree between DTSC and Jim Dobbas, Inc.

DTSC brought an action under the Comprehensive Environmental
Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980 to recover
cleanup costs incurred at 147 A Street in Elmira, California, from
defendants Dobbas, Continental Rail, Inc., Pacific Wood Preserving
Corporation, West Coast Wood Preserving, LLC, Collins & Aikman
Products, LLC, and David van Over.

DTSC contended that Dobbas is a responsible party pursuant to
section 107(a) of CERCLA, and is therefore jointly and severally
liable for the costs DTSC incurred at the Elmira site.  Dobbas and
DTSC later informed the court that they had reached a settlement,
lodged on July 15, 2015 as the proposed Consent Decree.  The
proposed Consent Decree provided that DTSC will release Dobbas from
liability in exchange for, among other things, payment of
$350,000.

Judge Shubb found that the proposed Consent Decree is procedurally
and substantively fair, reasonable, and consistent with CERCLA's
objectives, and ordered its approval.

The case is CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT OF TOXIC SUBSTANCES CONTROL and
the TOXIC SUBSTANCES CONTROL ACCOUNT, Plaintiffs, v. JIM DOBBAS,
INC., a California corporation; CONTINENTAL RAIL, INC., a Delaware
corporation; DAVID VAN OVER, individually; PACIFIC WOOD PRESERVING,
a dissolved California corporation; and WEST COAST WOOD PRESERVING,
LLC, a Nevada limited liability company, Defendants, AND RELATED
COUNTERCLAIMS AND CROSS-CLAIMS, CIV. NO. 2:14-595 WBS EFB (E.D.
Cal.).

DALLAS PROTON: Objects to Bid to Convert Ch. 11 Case
----------------------------------------------------
Dallas Proton Treatment Center, LLC, et al., object to the motion
filed Kelcy Warren and Dallas Proton, LLC, asking the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Texas to convert the
Debtors' cases or, alternatively, to appoint chapter 11 trustee.

According to the Debtors, Mr. Warren has manufactured his
allegations in an attempt to bully the Debtors and extort value.
It is in the best interest of the creditors for the Court to give
the Debtors an opportunity to confirm a chapter 11 plan within a
reasonable period of time, the Debtors assert.

The Debtors further assert that they have income.  The Debtors have
a business, which is the same business into which Mr. Warren
loaned, the Debtors say.

Lulu Limited also objected to the motion, stating that it is
premature to convert the cases to liquidations under chapter 7.
The Debtors must be provided an opportunity to raise the capital
required for a successful reorganization.  Lulu says it has seen no
evidence of fraud perpetrated by the Debtors or their management as
alleged by Mr. Warren in his motion.

DETROIT, MI: AFSME Allowed to Intervene in Clean Water Act Suit
---------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Sean F. Cox of the United States District Court for the
Eastern District of Michigan, Southern Division, granted AFSCME
Council 25's Motion to Intervene in the case filed by the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency against the City of Detroit and/or
the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department.

Judge Coz also set the deadline for the filing of briefs opposing
any portion of the relief sought by the City and/or the DWSD.

In 1977, the EPA initiated a case against the City and the DSWD,
alleging violations of the Clean Water Act.  On March 27, 2013, the
court issued an Opinion & Order Terminating Second Amended Consent
Judgment and Closing the Case.

The City and DSWD recently filed motions seeking relief under Fed.
R. Civ. P. 60(b)(6), arguing that circumstances have substantially
changed since the court issued the orders and since it closed the
case, and that the court should issue an order addressing several
issues.

Judge Cox agreed that the circumstances have substantially changed.
The judge then ordered that if any party opposes any portion of
the relief requested by the City and/or DSWD, that party shall file
a brief no more than 25 pages no later than November 23, 2015.

Lastly, the City and DSWD were ordered to file any reply briefs, of
no more than 10 pages, no later than November 30, 2015.

The case is United States of America, Plaintiff, v. City of
Detroit, et al., Defendants, CASE NO. 77-71100 (E.D. Mich.).

                     About the City of Detroit

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

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

Michigan Governor Rick Snyder authorized the bankruptcy filing.

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

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

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

the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees
and the International Union.

Babette Ceccotti, Esq., at Cohen, Weiss & Simon LLP, is

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

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

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

EAST END DEVELOPMENT: Purchaser Responds to Inquiry on Final Decree
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Mikee M. Hennessy, Esq., at Westerman Ball Ederer Miller Zucker &
Sharestein, LLP, on behalf of Amalgamated Bank as trustee of
Longview Ultra Construction Loan Investment Fund, responded to the
inquiry of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of
New York concerning the filing of a final decree in the Chapter 11
cases of East End Development, LLC.

Amalgamated Bank was the successful bidder for the auction of the
Debtors' assets.

Mr. Hennessy noted that the Debtor's Third Amended Chapter 11 Plan,
as modified, has been substantially consummated and distribution
has been made to holders of Allowed Class 4 General Unsecured
Creditors.  The Court confirmed the Debtor's Third Amended Plan on
Sept. 27, 2015.

Mr. Hennessy added that Amalgamated anticipates that a final decree
can be filed on behalf of the Debtor once the two remaining
adversary proceedings are either resolved by the parties or
determined through trial by the Court.  The parties in the
Amalgamated action attempted to resolve the proceeding through
mediation, however, the mediation has concluded unsucessfully.

                  About East End Development

condominium in Sag Harbor, New York, filed a Chapter 11 petition
(Bankr. E.D.N.Y. Case No. 12-76181) in Central Islip, New York, on

ENERGY FUTURE: Bankruptcy Casts Going Concern Doubt on EFIH
-----------------------------------------------------------
Energy Future Intermediate Holding Company LLC (EFIH) posted total
membership interests of ($2,416,000,000) for the three months ended
September 30, 2015, compared to ($2,203,000,000) for the quarter
ended September 30, 2014.

EFIH Senior Vice President and Controller Terry L. Nutt said in a
regulatory filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission
on November 3, 2015 that the company's ability to continue as a
going concern is contingent upon, among other factors, its ability
to comply with the financial and other covenants contained in its
DIP Facility, its ability to obtain new debtor-in-possession
financing in the event the DIP Facility was to expire during the
pendency of its Chapter 11 Cases and its ability to complete a
Chapter 11 plan of reorganization in a timely manner, including
obtaining creditor and Bankruptcy Court approval of such plan as
well as applicable regulatory approvals required for such plan and
obtaining any exit financing needed to implement such plan.

"These circumstances and uncertainties inherent in the bankruptcy
proceedings raise substantial doubt about EFIH's ability to
continue as a going concern."

In March 2015, with the approval of the Bankruptcy Court, EFIH used
some of its cash to repay (Repayment) $735 million, including
interest at contractual rates, in amounts outstanding under EFIH's
prepetition 11.00% Second Lien Notes due 2021 (11.00% Notes) and
11.75% Second Lien Notes due 2022 (11.75% Notes) and $15 million in
certain fees and expenses of the trustee for such notes.  The
Repayment required the requisite consent of the lenders under the
EFIH DIP Facility.  EFIH received such consent from approximately
97% of the lenders under the EFIH DIP Facility and paid an
aggregate consent fee equal to approximately $13 million. As a
result of the Repayment, as of the date hereof, the principal
amount outstanding on the 11.00% Notes and 11.75% are $322 million
and $1.389 billion, respectively.

As of September 30, 2015, EFIH had $370 million in liquidity
consisting entirely of cash and cash equivalents.  As of September
30, 2015, the company had total assets of $6,523,000,000 and total
liabilities of $8,939,000,000.  The company reported a net income
of $45,000,000 during the quarter ended September 30, 2015,
compared to a net income of $69,000,000 during the same period in
2014.

Subject to certain exceptions under the Bankruptcy Code, the
Bankruptcy Filing automatically enjoined, or stayed, the
continuation of most pending judicial or administrative proceedings
and the filing of other actions against EFIH and EFIH Finance Inc.
(the EFIH Debtors) or their property to recover on, collect or
secure a claim arising prior to the Petition Date (including with
respect to EFIH's prepetition debt instruments), Mr. Nutt related.

The Bankruptcy Court approved final orders in June 2014 authorizing
the EFIH DIP Facility. The EFIH First Lien DIP Facility provides
for $5.4 billion in senior secured, super-priority financing.

The EFIH DIP Facility permits, subject to certain terms, conditions
and limitations, EFIH to incur incremental junior lien subordinated
debt in an aggregate amount not to exceed $3 billion.

"EFIH believes that the EFIH DIP facility, plus cash distributions
received from Oncor Electric Delivery Company LLC (Oncor Holdings),
will be sufficient to fund its anticipated cash requirements
through at least the June 2016 maturity date of the EFIH DIP
facility.  As a result of the Chapter 11 Cases, EFIH does not
expect to receive further interest payments on affiliate debt
securities it holds," Mr. Nutt told the SEC.

ENERGY FUTURE: EFCH Posts $1.5-Bil. Net Loss in Qtr. Ended Sept. 30
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Energy Future Competitive Holdings Company LLC (EFCH) incurred a
net loss of $1,518,000,000 for the three months ended September 30,
2015, compared to a net loss of $38,000,000 for the same period in
2014.  Net loss increased $1.480 billion to $1.518 billion in 2015.
The increase primarily reflected the noncash impairments of
goodwill and certain long-lived assets, partially offset by lower
depreciation and amortization expense, said EFCH Senior Vice
President and Controller Terry L. Nutt in a regulatory filing with
the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission dated November 3,
2015.

"Our ability to continue as a going concern is contingent upon,
among other factors, our ability to comply with the financial and
other covenants contained in Texas Competitive Electric Holdings
Company LLC (TCEH)'s DIP Facility, our ability to obtain new debtor
in possession financing in the event the TCEH DIP Facility was to
expire during the pendency of our Chapter 11 Cases and our ability
to complete a Chapter 11 plan of reorganization in a timely manner,
including obtaining creditor and Bankruptcy Court approval of such
plan as well as applicable regulatory approvals required for such
plan and obtaining any exit financing needed to implement such
plan," Mr. Nutt said.  

"These circumstances and uncertainties inherent in the bankruptcy
proceedings raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue
as a going concern."

Mr. Nutt related, "In general, the Debtors have received final
bankruptcy court orders with respect to first day motions and other
operating motions that allow the Debtors to operate their
businesses in the ordinary course, including, among others,
providing for the payment of certain prepetition employee and
retiree expenses and benefits, the use of the Debtors' existing
cash management system, the segregation of certain cash balances
which require further order of the Bankruptcy Court for
distribution, the continuation of customer contracts and programs
at our retail electricity operations, the payment of certain
prepetition amounts to certain critical vendors, the ability to
perform under certain prepetition hedging and trading arrangements
and the ability to pay certain prepetition taxes and regulatory
fees.  In addition, the Bankruptcy Court has issued orders
approving the TCEH DIP Facility.

"We expect to generate additional net operating losses (NOLs)
during our Chapter 11 Cases and estimate that the Energy Future
Holdings Corp. consolidated group will have approximately $6.3
billion of NOLs at the time of emergence (assuming a June 30, 2016
emergence date), of which approximately $6.1 billion are expected
to be attributable to EFCH.  Of the $6.3 billion of consolidated
NOLs, we intend to utilize up to approximately $5.8 billion of NOLs
to offset taxable gain recognized in connection with the Plan of
Reorganization that will result in a step-up in the tax basis of
certain assets of TCEH.  It is expected that the assets of TCEH
will have an aggregate tax basis of approximately $5.5 billion at
the time of emergence (prior to giving effect to such step-up in
tax basis).  EFH Corp. is seeking a private letter ruling from the
IRS regarding the transaction resulting in such step-up in tax
basis and such transaction is subject to receiving a favorable
ruling from the Internal Revenue Services.  The determination of
which assets will receive a step-up in tax basis depends upon the
fair market value and the tax basis of such assets at the time of
emergence.  Applicable GAAP guidance may require deferred tax
assets reflected in the financial statements be subjected to a full
or partial valuation allowance in future periods, unless and until
a transaction occurs that results in the utilization of such
deferred tax assets."

As of September 30, 2015, the company's balance sheets showed total
assets of $17,285,000,000, total liabilities of $38,813,000,000,
and membership interests of ($21,528,000,000).

ENERGY FUTURE: EFH Has $1.5-Bil. Net Loss in Qtr. Ended Sept. 30
----------------------------------------------------------------
Energy Future Holdings Corp. (EFH Corp.) incurred a net loss of
$1,460,000,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2015,
compared to a net loss of $49,000,000 for the same period in 2014.
Results for EFH Corp. decreased $1.509 billion to a net loss of
$1.460 billion in 2015, Terry L. Nutt, senior vice president and
controller of the company, said in a regulatory filing with the
U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on November 3, 2015. He
noted that net loss for the Competitive Electric segment increased
$1.480 billion to $1.517 billion, results in the Regulated Delivery
segment increased $4 million to $127 million, and after-tax
expenses from Corporate and Other activities totaled $70 million
and $37 million in 2015 and 2014, respectively.

"Our ability to continue as a going concern is contingent upon,
among other factors, our ability to comply with the financial and
other covenants contained in the DIP Facilities, our ability to
obtain new debtor in possession financing in the event the DIP
Facilities were to expire during the pendency of our Chapter 11

payment of certain prepetition amounts to certain critical vendors,
the ability to perform under certain prepetition hedging and
trading arrangements and the ability to pay certain prepetition
taxes and regulatory fees.  In addition, the Bankruptcy Court has
issued orders approving the DIP Facilities.

Pursuant to the Bankruptcy Code, the Debtors intend to comply with
all applicable regulatory requirements, including all requirements
related to environmental and safety law compliance, during the
pendency of the Chapter 11 Cases, according to Mr. Nutt.

"Further, the Debtors have been complying, and intend to continue
to comply, with the various reporting obligations that are required
by the Bankruptcy Court during the pendency of the Chapter 11
Cases.  Moreover, to the extent the Debtors either maintain
insurance policies or self-insure their regulatory compliance
obligations, the Debtors intend to continue such insurance policies
or self-insurance in the ordinary course of business," Mr. Nutt
said.

As of September 30, 2015, the company had total assets of
$24,528,000,000, total liabilities of $47,450,000,000, and total
shareholders' equity of ($22,922,000,000).

ENERGY FUTURE: U.S. Trustee Objects to Fidelity Settlement
----------------------------------------------------------
Andrew R. Vara, Acting United States Trustee for Region 3, objects
to the Settlement between debtors Energy Future Holdings Corp., et.
al., and Fidelity Management & Research Company, which the Debtors
have submitted to the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of
Delaware, for approval.

The U.S. Trustee objects to the Settlement which requires Debtor
Energy Future Holdings Corp. ("EFH") to pay Fidelity's unpaid fees
and expenses up to $12 million on the Plan's Effective Date, as
well as to pay the unpaid fees and expenses of the EFH Notes
Trustee American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, LLC, under the
Amended & Restated Plan Support Agreement.

Mr. Vara contends that the Debtors fail to provide sufficient
information to allow anyone, including the U.S. Trustee, the Court,
or other interested parties, to evaluate the propriety of the
payments now seemingly authorized and agreed-to under the Fidelity
Stipulation and Amended PSA.  Mr. Vara further contends that these
payment provisions seek to evade the procedural and substantive
requirements imposed by the Bankruptcy Code and lack sufficient
information and disclosure.  He tells the Court that it appears
that the proposed payments to Fidelity and the EFH Notes Trustee,
and presumably their undisclosed third-party professionals relate
to fee payments to professionals whose compensation is governed by
Sections 503(b)(3)(D) and (4) of the Bankruptcy Code.  Mr. Vara
further tells the Court that a party's right to payment under
section 503(b) is not automatic but "depends upon the requesting
party's ability to show that the fees were actually necessary to
preserve the value of the estate."  
Mr. Vara contends that it is unclear whether the payment provisions
of the Fidelity Settlement will limit payment to professionals who
can and will satisfy section 503(b).  He further contends that the
Fidelity Settlement does not provide parties-in-interest with any
effective opportunity to review or contest whether those
requirements have been met.

EWT HOLDINGS: S&P Affirms 'B' Corp. Credit Rating, Outlook Stable
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it has affirmed its
'B' corporate credit rating on EWT Holdings III Corp.  The outlook
is stable.

In addition, S&P affirmed its 'B+' issue-level rating on EWT's
first-lien credit facility.  The '2' recovery rating on the loans
is unchanged, indicating S&P's expectation for substantial
(70%-90%; lower end of the range) recovery in the event of a
payment default.

At the same time, S&P raised its issue-level rating on the
company's second-lien term loan to 'B-' from 'CCC+' and revised its
recovery rating to '5' from '6'.  The '5' recovery rating indicates
S&P's expectation for modest (10%-30%; lower end of the range)
recovery in the event of payment default.

"The affirmation reflects our view that EWT's credit measures will
improve as its operations as a stand-alone entity continue to
stabilize," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Sarah Wyeth.  S&P
expects the company's expanded salesforce and its high proportion
of service revenues to enable EWT to generate slow but steady
revenue growth in 2016 and beyond.  With declining costs associated
with the carve-out from Siemens AG, the company should be able to
achieve EBITDA margin of about 10% and maintain leverage below 6x.

The stable outlook is supported by S&P's expectation that EWT's
top-line growth will be comparable to GDP growth in the U.S.  S&P
also expects the high proportion of service-based revenues will
insulate the company somewhat from cyclical downturns.  The stable
outlook is also supported by S&P's expectation that the company
will continue to transition smoothly to a stand-alone entity,
gradually improving margins over time.  This should result in
leverage of about 5x in 2015 and then gradually declining in 2016.

S&P could lower the rating if costs are higher than it expects,
resulting in an EBITDA margin in the mid-single-digits and leverage
increasing to and remaining higher than 6.5x.

Alternatively, S&P could raise the rating if the company achieves
double-digit margins and adopts a less aggressive financial policy,
resulting in leverage likely to remain below 5x.

GARLOCK SEALING: Files Omnibus Objections to Asbestos Claims
------------------------------------------------------------
Pursuant to Section 502 of the Bankruptcy Code, Federal Rules of
Bankruptcy Procedure 3007 and 3018, and the April 10, 2015 Order
Approving Disclosure Statement and Establishing Asbestos Claims Bar
Date and Procedures for Solicitation, Garlock Sealing Technologies
LLC;, et al., filed omnibus objections, to object to the temporary
allowance for voting purposes of certain Class 4 claims filed by
various firms, including:

   * Robert E. Sweeney, L.P.A;
   * Porter & Malouf, P.A.;
   * Wallace & Graham;
   * The Jaques Admiralty Law Firm PC;
   * Trine & Metcalf, P.C.;
   * Weitz & Luxenberg P.C.;
   * Motley Rice LLC;
   * Nix, Patterson & Roach, L.L.P.;

   * Harrison Davis Steakley Morrison, P.C.;
   * Hissey Kientz, LLP;
   * Kelley & Ferraro, LLP.; and
   * Law Offices of Peter G. Angelos.

Garland S. Cassada, Esq., at Robinson Bradshaw & Hinson, P.A.,
tells the Court that the Subject Claims do not meet the
Solicitation Order's requirements for temporary allowance because
they were settled and paid prepetition, were dismissed with
prejudice, are time-barred, or were resolved by final judgment
prepetition.  According to Mr. Cassada, the Subject Claims
constitute a portion of claims filed by the Filing Firms and
identified by Debtors as not meeting these requirements.

                       About Garlock Sealing

Headquartered in Palmyra, New York, Garlock Sealing Technologies
LLC is a unit of EnPro Industries, Inc. (NYSE: NPO).  For more than
a century, Garlock has been helping customers efficiently seal the
toughest process fluids in the most demanding applications.

On June 5, 2010, Garlock filed a voluntary Chapter 11 petition
(Bankr. W.D.N.C. Case No. 10-31607) in Charlotte, North Carolina,
to establish a trust to resolve all current and future asbestos
claims against Garlock under Section 524(g) of the U.S. Bankruptcy
Code.  The Debtor estimated $500 million to $1 billion in assets
and up to $500 million in debts as of the Petition Date.

Affiliates The Anchor Packing Company and Garrison Litigation
Management Group, Ltd., also filed for bankruptcy.

Albert F. Durham, Esq., at Rayburn Cooper & Durham, P.A.,
represents the Debtor in their Chapter 11 effort.  Garland S.
Cassada, Esq., at Robinson Bradshaw & Hinson, serves as counsel
For asbestos matters.

The Official Committee of Asbestos Personal Injury Claimants in the
Chapter 11 cases is represented by Travis W. Moon, Esq., at
Hamilton Moon Stephens Steele & Martin, PLLC, in Charlotte, NC,
Elihu Inselbuch, Esq., at Caplin & Drysdale, Chartered, in New
York, and Trevor W. Swett III, Esq., Leslie M. Kelleher, Esq., and
Jeanna Rickards Koski, Esq., in Washington, D.C. 20005.

Joseph W. Grier, III, the Court-appointed legal representative for
future asbestos claimants, has retained A. Cotten Wright, Esq., at
Grier Furr & Crisp, PA, and Richard H. Wyron, Esq., and Jonathan P.
Guy, Esq., at Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP, as his
co-counsel.

Judge George Hodges of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Western
District of North Carolina on Jan. 10, 2014, entered an order
estimating the liability for present and future mesothelioma claims
against Garlock Sealing at $125 million, consistent with the
positions GST put forth at trial.

In January 2015, the Debtors filed their Second Amended Plan of
Reorganization, which is backed by the Future Asbestos Claimants'
Representative (FCR).  The confirmation hearing is slated to begin
June 20, 2016.

Under the schedule for confirmation proceedings ordered by the
Court, objections to confirmation of the Plan that do not depend on
the results of voting were due Oct. 6, 2015, and confirmation
objections that depend on such results are due on Dec. 18, 2015.


GARLOCK SEALING: Firms, FCR Seek Temporary Allowance of Claims
--------------------------------------------------------------
Various parties have filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Western District of North Carolina motions pursuant to Rule 3018(a)
of the Bankruptcy Rules of Procedure, each seeking an order
temporarily allowing claims for voting purposes.

Motley Rice, LLC, requests the entry of an order temporarily
allowing, for voting purposes only, the votes cast by and on behalf
of 2,022 Canadian claimants, to which the Bar Date applies, to be
allowed the opportunity to vote on the Debtors' Second Amended Plan
of Reorganization.  The firm notes that Garlock had operations in
Canada, sold its asbestos gaskets there and has been sued in the
past by Canadian citizens for asbestos related disease.  The Plan
of Reorganization purports to channel any asbestos claims based on
exposure in Canada to a trust, and to affect the rights of those
Canadians.  

Motley Rice timely submitted a Class 4 Master Ballot which included
the 2,022 Canadian claimants.  The firm argues that the claimants,
as potential creditors of the Debtors' bankruptcy estate, as
evidenced by the votes cast and the proof of claims filed, should
not be disenfranchised by the Debtors and denied the opportunity to
vote on this plan of reorganization.

Motley Rice filed another motion, to seek an order temporarily
allowing Motley Rice's 54 Class 3 settled but unpaid claims for
plan voting purposes only.  Motley Rice, prior to the October 6,
2015 bar date, voted and filed proof of claims on behalf of
claimants who have been injured or have died as a result of
asbestos exposure to the Debtors' asbestos containing products or
to those products and operations for which the Debtors are
ultimately liable.  Under the proposed Plan, Class 3 claims are
comprised of "Settled GST [Garlock Sealing Technologies] Asbestos
Claims."  The firm acknowledges that the Debtors have filed
numerous omnibus objections to Settled GST Asbestos claims but note
that the Debtors contest only the validity and enforceability of
these subject claims and not the actual settlement amount of these
claims.  It asserts that the presumption of validity of its 54
prepetition Settled GST Asbestos Claims remains.

The firm Goldenberg Heller Antognoli & Rowland, P.C., represents
claimants who "were in a trade, industry and/or worked at a job
site where the likelihood of Garlock exposure was high and were
similar to claims that were paid previously by Garlock in the
past."  Goldenberg Heller avers that each of the claimants should
be allowed for voting purposes in the amount of $1.00 except in the
single case of the claimant with testicular mesothelioma, James
McClain, which should be allowed in the amount of $10,000.
The Future Claimants' Representative ("FCR") notes that Debtors'
Second Amended Plan of Reorganization provides that the FCR may
vote on the Plan on behalf of all future claimants, Class 5.  On
July 1, 2015, the FCR voted his ballot to accept the Debtors' Plan.
The Voting Procedures Order does not require or contemplate that
the FCR would be required to seek temporary allowance of the Class
5 proof of claim for voting purposes by the November 5, 2015
deadline, which applies to certain other classes of claims.  Out of
an abundance of caution, to protect against a hyper-technical
argument at a later stage of the case that temporary allowance
should have been sought now for the Class 5 claim, the FCR filed a
motion pursuant to Rule 3018(a) to preserve the right to make
allowance arguments later.

GARLOCK SEALING: To Revise Criteria for Class 4 Claims Voting
-------------------------------------------------------------
Garlock Sealing Technologies LLC, et al., filed a motion asking the
Bankruptcy Court for relief from the Order Approving Disclosure
Statement and Establishing Asbestos Claims Bar Date and
Procedures for Solicitation, namely the part of the order that
determined the criteria for temporary allowance of Class 4 asbestos
claims for voting purposes.

In the Order, the Court determined that to be temporarily allowed
for voting purposes, Class 4 claims must meet minimal criteria
showing they have potential merit against Garlock.  The claim must
not be settled and paid, dismissed with prejudice, or known to be
time-barred; the claimant must have had exposure to asbestos
released from Garlock gaskets or packing; and the claimant must
have a diagnosis of pleural or peritoneal mesothelioma, lung
cancer, laryngeal cancer, or asbestosis.  To ensure that the voted
claims had these characteristics, the Court required certifications
under penalty of perjury, to the best of attorneys' (or claimants')
knowledge, information, and reasonable belief. The Court, however,
rejected Debtors' request that claimants be required to provide
documents evidencing their exposure to asbestos from Garlock
gaskets or packing.

Unfortunately, Garland S. Cassada, Esq., at Robinson Bradshaw &
Hinson, P.A., explains it is now clear that the certifications the
Court required were not sufficient to ensure that only claims
meeting the temporary allowance criteria were voted.  In fact, tens
of thousands of voted claims do not meet those criteria.

First, tens of thousands of voting claims were settled and paid
before the bankruptcy petition, were the subject of final judgments
prepetition, were dismissed, or are clearly time-barred. These
claims do not meet the voting criteria, have no potential merit,
and should not have been voted in these cases.  Moreover, it is
also clear that many claims were voted despite not having any
evidence of exposure to asbestos from Garlock gaskets. Thousands of
claimants voted whose claims were dismissed before the petition, as
well as hundreds of mesothelioma claimants who could not identify
any evidence of Garlock exposure in response to the questionnaire
ordered by the Court.

Finally, thousands of claimants voted who likely do not have a
diagnosis of disease. The vote was dominated by more than 100,000
claimants whose attorneys certified they have diagnoses of
asbestosis, yet thousands of those claimants were recruited through
mass screenings, creating inherent suspicion as to whether they
actually have a diagnosis.

At the end of the day, approximately 92% of the 81,039 Class 4
ballots where Debtors have information other than the ballot --
over 74,000 ballots -- do not meet or are unlikely to meet the
criteria for temporary allowance.  As a result, the Class 4 vote is
not useful to this Court for any purpose.  It cannot tell the Court
how many claims in fact meet the temporary allowance criteria.  It
does not tell the Court whether Class 4 rejected the Plan.  And it
certainly does not bear the weight the Official Committee of
Asbestos Personal Injury Claimants (the "Committee") assigns to it,
as showing a vast number of colorable Garlock claims that will
reject the Settlement Option under the Plan, swamp this Court, and
create a risk that claims will not be paid in full.  To the
contrary, the balloting is dominated by claims that do not meet
even the minimal criteria the Court established to permit Class 4
claimants to vote.  In sum, the plaintiffs' bar has orchestrated a
campaign to stuff the ballot box with meritless claims in an
attempt to derail confirmation of the Plan.

If the Class 4 vote is going to mean anything in these cases -- if
it is going to be used to find that Class 4 has rejected the Plan,
placing the burden on Debtors to demonstrate fairness and equity --
then Debtors are entitled to a vote with integrity.  The vote that
has occurred has none.

The only way to ensure it is to require minimal documentation
before Class 4 claims will be temporarily allowed for voting
purposes.  Claimants should be required to identify their date of
diagnosis and the first date they filed a tort suit or a Trust
claim, to permit the parties and Court to determine whether their
claims are time-barred.  Claimants should be required to produce
specific evidence of contact with Garlock's asbestos-containing
gaskets or packing to confirm their certifications of Garlock
exposure.  Claimants alleging asbestosis should be required to
produce the diagnosis upon which they rely and the name of the
diagnosing physician, so that the Court and parties can know
whether they have a real diagnosis at all, or only one from a
source that has been thoroughly discredited.  Without these steps,
neither the Court nor the parties will know how many of the Class 4
claims have any conceivable merit, such that they should be counted
as votes in these cases.

For all these reasons, the Debtors request modification of the
Solicitation Order.  Specifically, the Debtors request that as a
condition for temporary allowance, claimants be required to provide
the following information:

   a. The date of diagnosis for the disease claimed in the
      ballot;

   b. The date the claimant first filed a lawsuit against any
      defendant or a claim against any Trust based on the
      disease claimed in the ballot;

   c. Documents sufficient to demonstrate (a) the location where
      the Injured Party experienced GST Asbestos Exposure, (b)
      the Injured Party's occupation and industry when he or
      she experienced such GST Asbestos Exposure, and (c)
      identification of the kind of Garlock asbestos-containing
      product  with which the Injured Party had contact; and

   d. For asbestosis claimants, the diagnosis upon which they
      rely to make the certification of disease and the name of
      the diagnosing physician.

The Court required the Debtors to meet the standards of
Fed.R.Civ.P. Rule 60 to modify that Order, and those standards are
met where law firms voted tens of thousands of claims that do not
meet the Court's temporary allowance criteria.  The only viable
solution is to send attorneys back to the drawing board, to
determine which of their clients' claims actually do meet the
criteria.

Simultaneous with the Motion, the Debtors are filing objections to
claims voted by certain firms who collectively cast over 100,000 of
the ballots in Class 4, to establish that they voted large numbers
of ballots that do not meet the temporary allowance criteria.  As
it would be impracticable for the Debtors to file 100-claim omnibus
objections to all of the claims they have identified as

Headquartered in Palmyra, New York, Garlock Sealing Technologies
LLC is a unit of EnPro Industries, Inc. (NYSE: NPO).  For more than
a century, Garlock has been helping customers efficiently seal the
toughest process fluids in the most demanding applications.

On June 5, 2010, Garlock filed a voluntary Chapter 11 petition
(Bankr. W.D.N.C. Case No. 10-31607) in Charlotte, North Carolina,
to establish a trust to resolve all current and future asbestos
claims against Garlock under Section 524(g) of the U.S. Bankruptcy
Code.  The Debtor estimated $500 million to $1 billion in assets
and up to $500 million in debts as of the Petition Date.

Affiliates The Anchor Packing Company and Garrison Litigation
Management Group, Ltd., also filed for bankruptcy.

Albert F. Durham, Esq., at Rayburn Cooper & Durham, P.A.,
represents the Debtor in their Chapter 11 effort.  Garland S.
Cassada, Esq., at Robinson Bradshaw & Hinson, serves as counsel
For asbestos matters.

The Official Committee of Asbestos Personal Injury Claimants in the

Judge George Hodges of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Western
District of North Carolina on Jan. 10, 2014, entered an order
estimating the liability for present and future mesothelioma claims
against Garlock Sealing at $125 million, consistent with the
positions GST put forth at trial.

In January 2015, the Debtors filed their Second Amended Plan of
Reorganization, which is backed by the Future Asbestos Claimants'
Representative (FCR).  The confirmation hearing is slated to begin
June 20, 2016.

Under the schedule for confirmation proceedings ordered by the
Court, objections to confirmation of the Plan that do not depend on
the results of voting were due Oct. 6, 2015, and confirmation
objections that depend on such results are due on Dec. 18, 2015.


GAS-MART USA: UMB, Sun Life Object to SNC JJ Stipulation
--------------------------------------------------------
Gas-Mart USA, Inc., and its affiliated debtors ask the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of Missouri, Kansas City
Division, to approve a stipulation granting SNC JJ Holdings, LLC's
Motion for Adequate Protection.

SNC had previously filed a motion seeking adequate protection for
the use of its collateral.

The Stipulation contains, among others, these material terms:

   (a) The Debtors are required to pay SNC monthly adequate
protection payments as follows:

       (i) $18,500 per month from September 2015 to December 2015;

      (ii) $22,500 per month from January, 2016 to April, 2016;

     (iii) $18,500 per month from May 2016 until such time as a
Chapter 11 plan is confirmed.

   (b) The Debtors are required to pay the real estate taxes with
respect to SNC's collateral as such taxes become due.

   (c) The Debtors must maintain current insurance with respect to
SNC's collateral.

   (d) The monthly adequate protection payments shall reduce the
total amounts owing to SNC by the Debtors; however, in the event
that SNC's claim is bifurcated into a secured claim and an
unsecured claim, the monthly adequate protection payments shall not
reduce SNC's secured claim.

   (e) Provided no default under the Stipulation occurs, SNC will
be enjoined under Section 105 of the Bankruptcy Code from pursuing
any collection of the amounts owing to SNC by Michael L. George,
David L. George, and Michael L. George and David L. George as co-
trustees of the George Irrevocable Trust Dated November 18, 1996
for a period 6 months from the date the Court approves the
Stipulation.

The Debtors submit that the adequate protection proposed in the
Stipulation is fair and reasonable and sufficient to satisfy the
requirements of Section 363(e) of the Bankruptcy Code.

Lenders UMB Bank, N.A., and Sun Life Assurance Company of Canada
object to the Debtors' motion.  The Lenders contend that over the
course of the bankruptcy cases, the Debtors have consistently
failed to meet their revenue projections by significant margins and
as a result, the Debtors failed to make their budgeted adequate
protection payments to the Lenders.  The Lenders further contend
that based upon the Debtors' most recent projections, they also are
and will be unable to make any future adequate protection payments
to the Lenders and will run out of cash by December, 2015 if they
do not receive additional funds for operations.  The Lenders tell
the Court that at this time, they are unwilling to fund additional
monies and that the Debtors and Lenders are currently in
negotiations about a potential sale process.  The Lenders further
tell the Court that given the current state of affairs, there is no
guaranty that the Debtors can make monthly adequate protection
payments to SNC.  The Lenders add that failure to make such
payments may result in the immediate lifting of the automatic stay.
They assert that any resolution related to adequate protection
should be made in the context of how these cases will proceed
including the ultimate timing of any sale process. The Lenders
further assert that entering into an adequate protection
arrangement at this time would be premature.

and G&G Enterprises, LLC, sought Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection
(Bankr. W.D. Mo. Lead Case No. 15-41915) in Kansas City, Missouri,
on July 2, 2015.

Gas-Mart and Aving-Rice own and operate gasoline
station/conveniences stores ("C-Stores").  With locations in Iowa,
Illinois, Indiana, Nebraska, and Wisconsin, Gas-Mart and Aving
Rice
operate 22 and 20 stores, respectively, as of the Petition Date.
G&G owns and leases ATM's to the 42 Gas-Mart and Aving-Rice
locations as well as certain ConocoPhillips locations in the
greater Kansas City Area.  Fran is a fuel hauling business located
in and serving Kansas City.

On Oct. 6, 2015, an order for relief under 11 U.S.C. Chapter 11
was
entered for the debtor Fuel Services Mart, Inc. ("FSM").  FSM
filed
as motion for an order directing that certain Orders in In re
Gas-Mart USA., et al. be made applicable to FSM.

Judge Arthur B. Federman presides over the Chapter 11 cases.

The Debtors tapped Stinson Leonard Street LLP as attorneys;
Polsinelli PC as special counsel; Brown & Ruprecht, PC as
Conflicts counsel; and Frank Wendt as special conflicts counsel.

The Debtors' Chapter 11 plan and disclosure statement are due
Oct. 30, 2015.

Gas-Mart estimated $10 million to $50 million in assets and debt.

creditors to serve on Gas-Mart's official committee of unsecured
creditors.  The committee is represented by Freeborn & Peters LLP,
in Chicago, Illinois.



GAS-MART USA: UMB, Sun Life Say Wells Fargo Stipulation Premature
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Gas-Mart USA, Inc. and its affiliated debtors ask the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of Missouri, Kansas City
Division, to approve a joint stipulation granting Wells Fargo Bank,
N.A., adequate protection.

Wells Fargo asserts that it is a secured creditor of the Debtors
and holds a security interest in the Debtors' assets, including but
not limited to, vehicles, real estate, accounts receivable, and
other assets of the Debtors.  The Debtors seek to resolve the
issues relating to adequate protection with Wells Fargo without
binding the parties as to the nature, extent and priority of Wells
Fargo's claims.  The Debtors contend that the Stipulation resolves
the issue of adequate protection by agreement of the parties during
the bankruptcy proceedings unless Wells Fargo's collateral suffers
a material adverse change.

The Stipulation contains, among others, these material terms:

   (a) The Debtors are required to pay Wells Fargo monthly adequate
protection payments of $5,000 per month commencing on Aug. 1,
2015.

   (b) The Debtors are required to pay the post-petition real
estate and personal property taxes and said assessments on the
property identified in the Security Agreements, the Certificates of
Title and the mortgages that purport to secure Wells Fargo’s
claim.

   (c) The Debtors must maintain current insurance with respect to
Wells Fargo's collateral.  

   (d) If the Wells Fargo Collateral in the aggregate suffers any
material adverse change during the bankruptcy proceeding, or if
Debtors fail to make any adequate protection payment when due, or
fail to cure any other default under the terms of this Stipulation
within 14 business days after Wells Fargo files a written notice of
such default under this Stipulation with the Bankruptcy Court, then
Wells Fargo, at its option, shall have the right to seek relief
from the automatic stay to exercise its rights and remedies under
state or other applicable non-bankruptcy law or, alternatively, to
seek additional adequate protection for cause shown.

The Debtors tell the Court that the adequate protection proposed in
the Stipulation is fair and reasonable and sufficient to satisfy
the requirement of Section 363(e) of the Bankruptcy Code.

Lenders UMB Bank, N.A. and Sun Life Assurance Company of Canada
contend that any resolution related to adequate protection is
premature, given the current status of the case.  The Lenders
further contend that the Debtors' motion should not be taken up by
the Court until the omnibus hearing scheduled for Dec. 17, 2015, at
which time the direction of the cases may be better known by the
Court, the Debtors, the Lenders and all other parties in interest.

The  Motion is scheduled for hearing on Dec. 17, 2015 at 9:30 a.m.

HAGGEN HOLDINGS: Smart & Final Gets Court Nod to Acquire 32 Stores
------------------------------------------------------------------
Smart & Final Stores, Inc. on Nov. 30 disclosed that its
subsidiary, Smart & Final Stores LLC, has been approved by the
United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware as the
purchaser of 32 store leases -- four of which are supplemental to
Smart & Final's previously announced stalking-horse bid -- and
related assets from affiliates of Haggen Holdings, LLC for a total
cash purchase price of approximately $68 million, subject to
certain adjustments.  The transaction is expected to close during
Smart & Final's fiscal fourth quarter in 2015, subject to customary
closing conditions.

"We're excited about the opportunity to build upon our footprint in
the important California market.  This strategic acquisition puts
us ahead in 'Project 100,' our plan to open 100 new stores, add 100
new teams and invest in 100 new neighborhood projects in the next
four years," said Smart & Final CEO, David Hirz.  "We continue to
see significant room for growth within our existing markets.
Through the acquisition of the Haggen stores, we will capture some
of this opportunity.  Our team looks forward to serving the
communities of each new store," said Mr. Hirz.

The Haggen acquisition will result in Smart & Final assuming the
leases and acquiring certain associated assets of 32 closed stores
in central and southern California.  Smart & Final plans to convert
the 32 stores to its Extra! store format, which includes: expanded
frozen, deli and meat selections; warehouse club sizes as well as
smaller, more convenient sizes; specialty products such as
oven-roasted chicken and dry bulk goods by the pound; fresh
seafood; fresh produce; and an expanded natural and organic product
line.

Founded by J.S. Smart and H.D. Final, Smart & Final represents one
of the longest continuously operated food retailers in the United
States and has become a trusted community brand in the markets it
serves.  Appealing to both businesses and households with its
variety of offerings and different sizes, Smart & Final Extra!
stores offer quality, value and a convenient one-stop shopping
experience.

As part of Project 100, Smart & Final plans to hire at least 5,000
new employees to staff new stores over the next four years.
Additionally, with every store Smart & Final opens, the Company
will continue to give back to the communities it serves via
philanthropic donations and partnerships.

The acquisition includes the following California stores previously
operated under the Haggen banner:

S&P also lowered its rating on Heartland's first-lien senior
secured debt to 'B-' from 'B'.  The recovery rating on this debt is
'3', indicating S&P's expectations of meaningful (50% to 70%, lower
end of range) recovery of principal in the event of default. In
addition, S&P lowered its rating on the company's second-lien
senior secured debt to 'CCC' from 'CCC+'.  The recovery rating on
this debt is '6', indicating expectations of negligible (0% to 10%)
recovery in the event of default.

"The ratings downgrade reflects a combination of Heartland's still
very high leverage, at over 8x; our expectation that it will
continue its aggressive expansion plans; and margins that are on
the lower side versus its rated DSO peers, despite steady to
slightly improving operating performance and free cash flow
generation," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Arthur Wong.
S&P's base-case expectations incorporate a slight improvement in
margins and its assessment of "adequate" liquidity, a continued
steady expansion of its dental office base, and for the company to
remain highly leveraged.

Heartland Dental is one of the largest and most geographically
diverse players in the competitive DSO industry.  Heartland's
affiliated professional corporations, which it does not own,
operate over 670 dental care offices in 31 states, with some
concentration in the Midwest and Florida.  The company has grown
rapidly, via opening new offices and acquisitions.  Patient
volumes, especially for elective services such as orthodontics, and
patient financial capacity can exhibit some sensitivity to economic
conditions, but S&P expects macroeconomic trends to be moderately
favorable over the outlook period.  The aggressive pace of new
offices, along with expected low-single-digit same-store growth,
drives S&P's expectations of roughly 20% revenue growth over the
next year.

S&P's stable outlook on Heartland Dental Care LLC reflects S&P's
base-case scenario of high-teens revenue growth, driven mainly by
continued aggressive de novo growth supplemented by single-digit
organic growth, and steady to slightly improving EBITDA margins as
recently opened dental offices mature.

Heartland's industry remains highly competitive, and the company
may not be able to achieve margin improvements or its revenue
growth targets.  S&P could lower the ratings on Heartland should
the company experience unexpected negative revenue or margin trends
and liquidity becomes tight, with less than 10% headroom under its
loan agreement covenant.  S&P could also lower the ratings should
it concludes that Heartland is unlikely to generate sufficient cash
flow to fund operations over the longer term.

A ratings upgrade would be predicated on a consistent track record
of increasing margins and cash flows, continued benefits from the
maturation of dental offices opened in the past two years and
beyond, and generation of free cash flows to fund acquisitions or
repay debt.  De-leveraging, from a combination of debt repayment
and growing EBITDA, to the 5x to 6x area could lend support to a
ratings upgrade.

INDEPENDENT BANCSHARES: Posts Net Loss, Ups Going Concern Doubt
---------------------------------------------------------------
Independence Bancshares, Inc. posted a net loss of $2,008,326 for
the quarter ended September 30, 2015, compared to a net loss of
$997,966 for the three months ended September 30, 2014.  "Our net
loss was $2.0 million for the three months ended September 30,
2015, or $0.06 per diluted share, an increase of approximately $1.1
million, or 101.2%, compared to a net loss of $997,966, or $0.05
per diluted share, for the three months ended September 30, 2014.
This increase in net loss was primarily driven by increases in
product research and development expenses.  While the company's
liquidity constraints during the late part of 2014 and first five
and a half months of 2015 resulted in a moderate decrease in such
research and development efforts, such efforts were increased
during the three months ended September 30, 2015," the company's
Interim Chief Executive Officer Lawrence R. Miller and Chief
Financial Officer Martha L. Long disclosed in a November 3, 2015
regulatory filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange
Commission.

The company posted total assets of $99,588,809, total liabilities
of $85,982,708, and total stockholders' equity of $13,606,101.  The
company's level of liquidity is measured by the cash, cash
equivalents, and investment securities available for sale to total
assets ratio and was 30.0% at September 30, 2015 compared to 26.3%
as of December 31, 2014.  The increase in liquidity is due to the
increase in fed funds sold, primarily as a result of the receipt of
proceeds from the Series A Private Placement.

The company has reported losses from operations for all of 2014 and
the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015.  Under
Regulation W, Independence National Bank (the Bank) may not be a
source of cash or capital for the company.

"Therefore, although we raised $8,425,000 in the Series A Private
Placement, due to the uncertainty of timing and amount of cash
needed for current outstanding commitments, the current run rate on
fixed expenses, the current payables, and the prohibition within
Regulation W, we believe that the company may not have sufficient
working capital to continue to fund its current level of
activities, if such activities were resumed following their
suspension on September 25, 2015, without raising additional
funding," disclosed Mr. Miller and Ms. Long.

"The factors raise substantial doubt about the company's ability to
continue as a going concern, and the financial statements do not
include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this
uncertainty.

"Our ability to raise additional capital will depend on a number of
factors, including conditions in the capital markets, which are
outside our control.  There is a risk we will not be able to raise
the capital we need at all or upon favorable terms. If we cannot
raise additional capital, we may not be able to implement our
growth objective for our business, and we may be subject to
increased regulatory supervision and restrictions.  These
restrictions would most likely have a material adverse effect on
our ability to grow and expand which would negatively impact our
financial condition and results of operations."

LEHMAN BROTHERS: FirstBank Loses 2nd Summary Judgment Bid
---------------------------------------------------------
FirstBank Puerto Rico seeks the assistance of the United States
Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York in securing
the return of certain securities pledged to Lehman Brothers Special
Financing Inc. in connection with a routine interest rate swap
agreement.

Many of those securities ultimately were sold to Barclays Capital
Inc. as part of the sale of financial assets by Lehman Brothers
Inc. to Barclays immediately after commencement of both the chapter
11 proceedings filed by Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. and this
related proceeding under the Securities Investor Protection Act.
Others had been permissibly rehypothecated by Lehman Brothers
Special Financing Inc. to certain of its other swap
counterparties.

This is the second time FirstBank seeks the Court's assistance in
this regard. FirstBank's novel assertion of customer status is
based on (i) provisions of the New York Uniform Commercial Code,
(ii) SEC customer protection rules, and (iii) U.S. Treasury
regulations. FirstBank has failed, however, to establish that it
meets the definition of "customer" under the Securities Investor
Protection Act.

Judge Shelley C. Chapman of the United States Bankruptcy Court for
the Southern District of New York granted Trustee James Giddens'
Motion for Order Expunging FirstBank Puerto Rico's Claim and denied
FirstBank's Motion for Summary Judgment.  

The case is In re: LEHMAN BROTHERS INC., Debtor, CASE NO. 08-01420
(SCC) SIPA (Bankr. S.D.N.Y.).

                             About Lehman Brothers

fourth largest investment bank in the United States.  For more
than150 years, Lehman Brothers has been a leader in the global
financial markets by serving the financial needs of corporations,
governmental units, institutional clients and individuals
worldwide.

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

Affiliates Merit LLC, LB Somerset LLC and LB Preferred Somerset LLC
sought for bankruptcy protection in December 2009.

The Debtors' bankruptcy cases are handled by Judge James M. Peck.
Harvey R. Miller, Esq., Richard P. Krasnow, Esq., Lori R. Fife,

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

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

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

As of Oct. 2, 2014, Lehman's total distributions to unsecured
creditors have amounted to $92.0 billion.  As of Sept. 30, 2014,
the brokerage trustee has substantially completed customer claims
distributions, distributing more than $106 billion to 111,000
customers.

MORNINGSTAR MARKETPLACE: Drops Plan as Part of Cash Use Deal
------------------------------------------------------------
Morningstar Marketplace, LTD, by counsel, Adam G, Klein, Esq., at
Smigel, Anderson & Sacks, LLP, filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court
for the Middle District of Pennsylvania a motion to withdraw its
Plan and Disclosure Statement.

On Sept. 29, 2015, Debtor filed a Disclosure Statement in support
of a Plan of Reorganization together with a proposed Plan.

The Plan offered to return 16 cents on the dollar to bondholders
but let its owner retain control of the company in exchange for a
contribution of $220,000 in cash plus other assets.  The 680
bondholders who each issued $5,000 in bonds prior to the company's
bankruptcy filing was to be paid at a rate of $800 per bond within
90 days of approval of the plan.  PNC Bank, a secured creditor,
will be paid at $23,459 per month in accordance with the terms of
the original mortgage note until paid in full while general
unsecured creditors will receive a premium of 10% of the accepted
amounts of the claims.

In its Motion to Withdraw, the Debtor noted that it has recently
entered into a Fourth Amended Final Stipulated Order authorizing
the use of cash collateral which Order, among other things, extends
the use of cash collateral from Nov. 1, 2015, to March 31, 2016.

Manufacturers & Traders Trust Company as trustee for certain
bondholders has concurred with the entry of the Cash Collateral
Order.

A portion of the Order deals with the subject of Debtor's Plan of
Reorganization stating in paragraph 8, page 9, the following:

    "Withdrawal of Plan. The Debtor's Plan of Reoganization dated  

    September 29, 2015 [Docket 195] and Disclosure Statement in
    support of Debtor's Plan of Reorganization [Doc. 196] are
    hereby withdrawn without prejudice."

The Debtor believes and avers that the Motion to Withdraw is
concurred in by M&T.

NGL ENERGY: S&P Rates New $300MM Sr. Unsec. Notes Due 2020 'BB-'
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its 'BB-' issue-level
rating and '3' recovery rating to NGL Energy Partners L.P.'s and
NGL Energy Finance Corp.'s proposed $300 million senior unsecured
notes due 2020.  The '3' recovery rating on the partnership's notes
indicates S&P's expectation of meaningful (50% to 70%; upper half
of the range) recovery if a payment default occurs.  Net proceeds
of the offering will be used to repay borrowings outstanding under
the partnership's revolving credit facility and for general
partnership purposes.  As of Sept. 30, 2015, the partnership had
about $2.8 billion in debt outstanding.

Tulsa, Okla.-based NGL Energy Partners is a midstream energy
partnership that specializes in crude oil logistics, water
treatment and processing, natural gas liquids logistics, refined
products logistics, and retail propane.  S&P's corporate credit
rating on the company is 'BB-' and the outlook is stable.

NUANCE COMMUNICATIONS: S&P Rates New 2035 Debentures 'BB-'
----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its 'BB-' issue rating
(the same as the corporate credit rating on the company) and '3'
recovery rating to Burlington, Mass.-based speech technology and
imaging solutions provider Nuance Communications Inc.'s proposed
senior convertible debentures due 2035.  The '3' recovery rating
indicates S&P's expectation of "meaningful" (50% to 70%; lower half
of the range) recovery in the event of default.

The company announced that it intends to issue $550 million of
senior convertible debentures, and use cash on hand to fund a $200
million share repurchase, and the repayment of its $485 million
term loan due 2019 (of which $472.5 million outstanding).

At the same time, S&P affirmed its 'BB-' issue rating on Nuance's
senior unsecured debt and revised the recovery rating to '3' (lower
half of the 50% to 70% range) from '4' as a result of the
anticipated repayment of the term loan.

The recovery rating on the company's $75 million revolving credit
facility expiring in 2018 remains '1' indicating S&P's expectation
of "very high" (90% to 100%) recovery in the event of default.  The
issue level rating is 'BB+'.  S&P will withdraw the ratings on the
senior secured term loan upon closing of the repayment.

This transaction does not affect S&P's 'BB-' corporate credit
rating on the company.  S&P expects the proposed convertible
debentures to have a maturity date of 2035, a put date of 2022, and
the same ranking as the existing senior unsecured notes. Although
Nuance's leverage will increase to the low- to mid-4x area at close
(up from 4x at fiscal year ended Sept. 30, 2015), S&P's financial
risk profile assessment on the company is unchanged.  Despite
Nuance's organic revenue growth challenges S&P still expects the
company's cost savings initiatives to yield margin improvements
over the next 12 months and good free operating cash flow, leading
to lower leverage of about 4x by the end of fiscal 2016.

PEEKAY BOUTIQUES: Admits Doubt About Going Concern Ability
----------------------------------------------------------
Peekay Boutiques, Inc. incurred a net loss of $2,265,636 during the
three months ended September 30, 2015, compared to a net loss of
$1,285,930 for the quarter ended September 30, 2014.  This was
largely as a result of interest expense on the company's
outstanding debt of $6.6 million annually, which exceeds the
operating profits generated through the operations of its business,
explained Peekay Chief Executive Officer Lisa Berman and Chief
Financial Officer Janet Matthews in a regulatory filing with the
U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on November 3, 2015.

During 2013 and 2014, the company incurred net losses of $2,577,263
and $4,150,367, respectively, approximately $38.2 million in senior
secured debt matures on December 31, 2015, and the company does not
have the resourced necessary to pay this debt as it comes due, Ms.
Berman and Ms. Matthews disclosed.

"The ability of the company to continue its operations and execute
its business plan is dependent on its ability to refinance this
debt and/or to raise sufficient capital to pay this debt and other
obligations as they come due (or are extended through a
refinancing) and to provide sufficient capital to operate its
business as contemplated.  

"These factors, among others, raise substantial doubt about the
company's ability to continue as a going concern."

The company had total assets of $49,623,189, total liabilities of
$60,124,547, and total stockholders' deficit of $10,501,358.

According to Ms. Berman and Ms. Matthews, the company has filed a
registration statement (Form S-1) with the SEC to sell 3,125,000
shares of common stock at an estimated price of $8 to $10 per
share, and plans to use the proceeds to reduce its Senior Debt
facility to approximately $22 million and extend the facility for
three additional years, and use the remaining proceeds for general
corporate purposes.  Simultaneously with the closing of the IPO,
the subordinated debt holders would convert their outstanding
principal and accrued interest of approximately $15.6 million to
common stock. "Management believes that the going concern clause
will no longer be necessary, if these transactions are completed."

POSTMEDIA NETWORK: S&P Lowers CCR to 'CCC+'; Outlook Negative
-------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it lowered its long-term
corporate credit rating on Toronto-based media company Postmedia
Network Inc. to 'CCC+' from 'B-'.  The outlook is negative.

At the same time, Standard & Poor's lowered its issue-level ratings
on Postmedia's first-lien notes to 'B' from 'B+' and second-lien
notes to 'CCC-' from 'CCC', while maintaining its recovery ratings
on the debt at '1' and '6', respectively.

"The downgrade reflects our view that Postmedia's capital structure
is unsustainable in the long term due to high cash interest costs
relative to our cash flow estimates combined with large debt
maturities commencing in August 2017," said Standard & Poor's
credit analyst David Fisher.

S&P believes Postmedia has sufficient liquidity to cover its fixed
charges over at least the next 12 months, which mitigates the
likelihood of a near-term payment crisis.  However, in S&P's view,
the company could experience significant refinancing challenges on
its first-lien debt (C$329 million outstanding at Aug. 31, 2015)
and second-lien debt (US$269 million equivalent to C$353 million at
Aug. 31), which mature in August 2017 and July 2018, respectively.

S&P views Postmedia's business risk profile as "vulnerable"
primarily based on S&P's expectation that the ongoing shift toward
digital media consumption will continue to stress the company's
operating results for the foreseeable future.  S&P assess
Postmedia's financial risk profile as "highly leveraged" based on
the company's weak leverage and coverage metrics.

Postmedia is the largest publisher by circulation of
English-language daily newspapers in Canada.  The emergence of
digital news consumption, combined with heightened competition in
the print-based newspaper space (including free dailies in some
urban markets), has caused Postmedia to experience significant
advertising and circulation revenue declines in recent years.

S&P believes the acquisition of Sun Media's English language
properties will enhance Postmedia's scale and provide synergies
related to shared content, distribution, printing, and so forth.
However, these properties are also experiencing secular revenue
declines.

The negative outlook reflects S&P's expectation that the company
could experience challenges refinancing its maturing debt starting
in August 2017 based on S&P's expectation of continued earnings
erosion due to secular pressure on print revenues.  S&P believes it
will become more apparent over the next 12 months whether the
company can stabilize its business to the degree necessary to
facilitate a refinancing.

S&P could lower the ratings on Postmedia in the 12 months before
the company's first-lien notes mature if it appears likely earnings
will continue to deteriorate because, in S&P's view, the
refinancing risk associated with this maturity would represent a
credible potential default scenario.  To refinance, S&P believes
the company will need to demonstrate that it can stabilize annual
EBITDA (after restructuring charges) at about C$100 million or
more--our estimate of Postmedia's fixed charges under the current
capital structure.  Should the company fail to demonstrate this,
S&P believes it could face meaningful challenges in refinancing its
debt.

S&P could revise the outlook to stable if it believes Postmedia is
likely to reduce its revenue declines to less than 1% annually and
generate EBITDA of more than C$125 million per year for a sustained
period of time.  This would increase refinancing prospects on the
first- and second-lien notes, which mature in 2017 and 2018,
respectively.



PSL-NORTH AMERICA: Exclusive Solicitation Period Expires Feb. 16
----------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Laurie Selber Silverstein of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the District of Delaware extended PSL-North America, LLC, et al.'s
current exclusive filing period through and including Dec. 16,
2015, and their exclusive solicitation period through and including

parties, the Debtors agreed to sell their assets to Jindal.  The
purchase price includes the assumption of a $78 million debt to
ICICI Bank Ltd. on account of bonds issued by the Mississippi

The Plan proposes to treat outstanding claims and interests as
follows:

effective date of the Plan;

   -- Priority tax claims estimated at $75,000 will have a 100%
recovery.

   -- Priority non-tax claims (Class 1), if any, will be paid in
full during the pendency of the Chapter 11 cases.

   -- Standard Chartered Bank's secured claim estimated at $17.8
million (Class 2) will be paid by the PSL Liquidating Trustee from
all available cash after payment by the Trustee of project expenses
and fees.  The remaining unpaid amount will be treated as a general
unsecured claim.  The secured claim has an estimated recovery of
2.7%.

   -- Holders of General unsecured claims (Class 3) estimated at
$7.8 million will each receive a pro rata share of the "liquidating
trust fund."  The estimated recovery is unknown.

   -- Holders of equity interests (Class 4) won't receive
anything.

SAN BERNARDINO, CA: Firefighters' Suit Remains in Bankr. Court
--------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Otis D. Wright, II, of the United States District Court for
the Central District of California granted in part and denied in
part the Motion to Withdraw Reference filed by plaintiffs San
Bernardino City Professional Firefighters Local 891, Gregory
Parker, Sam Bashaw, Chris Nigg, Thomas Jeff English, Richard
Lentine, Steve Tracy, and Kenneth Konior.

On April 10, 2015, the Firefighters filed an adverse action in
bankruptcy court, alleging that the City of San Bernardino reduced
their wages and benefits in violation of the City's Charter.  On
April 24, 2015, the Firefighters then moved the district court to
withdraw reference of the case from the bankruptcy court and
proceed with the matter before it.  The Firefighters argued that
withdrawing the reference is either required or advisable on
several grounds, to wit:

(1) withdrawal is mandatory because the complaint asserts claims
under non-bankruptcy federal law.

(2) withdrawal is mandatory because their claims are personal
injury tort claims.

(3) the court should exercise discretion to withdraw the action
because it is a non-core proceeding that would be more efficiently
litigated in the district court.

(4) they have a Seventh Amendment right to a jury trial on their
claims, which must be conducted in the district court.

Judge Wright rejected all the arguments except the last one.  The
judge granted in part and denied in part the Firefighters' Motion
to Withdraw Reference, and held that the bankruptcy court shall
retain jurisdiction of the action, with the sole exception that any
jury question that is necessary to resolve the Firefighters' claims
for damages under Section 1983 and the FLSA shall be tried before
the district court.

                     About San Bernardino

San Bernardino, California, filed an emergency petition for
municipal bankruptcy under Chapter 9 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code
(Bankr. C.D. Cal. Case No. 12-28006) on Aug. 1, 2012.  San
Bernardino, a city of about 210,000 residents roughly 65 miles
(104
km) east of Los Angeles, estimated assets and debt of more than $1
billion in the bare-bones bankruptcy petition.

The city council voted on July 10, 2012, to file for bankruptcy.
The move lets San Bernardino bypass state-required mediation with
creditors and proceed directly to U.S. Bankruptcy Court.

The city is represented that Paul R. Glassman, Esq., at Stradling
Yocca Carlson & Rauth.

San Bernardino joined two other California cities in bankruptcy:
Stockton, an agricultural center of 292,000 east of San Francisco,
and Mammoth Lakes, a mountain resort town of 8,200 south of
Yosemite National Park.

The City was granted Chapter 9 protection on Aug. 28, 2013.

The City filed on May 14, 2015, a Plan to exit court protection.
The Plan proposes to some bondholders a penny on the dollar but
maintains pension benefits for retired city workers.  The Plan
proposes to make full payments into the pension fund run by
California Public Employees' Retirement System.

The Troubled Company Reporter, on Oct. 28, 2015, reported that the
hearing on the disclosure statement with respect to the Plan for
the Adjustment of Debts of the City of San Bernardino, California,
has been continued to Dec. 23, 2015, at 1:30 p.m.


SEMLER SCIENTIFIC: Has $1.58M Net Loss in 3rd Quarter
-----------------------------------------------------
Semler Scientific, Inc., had a net loss of $1,580,000 for the three
months ended September 30, 2015, an increase of $114,000, compared
to a net loss of $1,466,000 for the same period in 2014.  The
company has incurred recurring losses since inception and expects
to continue to incur losses as a result of costs and expenses
related to the company's marketing and other promotional
activities, research and continued development of its product.  As
of September 30, 2015, the company had negative working capital of
$487,000 cash of $1,925,000 and stockholders' equity of $531,000,
said Semler Chief Executive Officer Douglas Murphy-Chutorian and
Chief Financial Officer James M. Walker, in a November 3, 2015
regulatory filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange
Commission.

According to Messrs. Murphy-Chutorian and Walker, the company's
ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon its
ability to obtain additional equity or debt financing, attain
further operating efficiencies and, ultimately, to generate
additional revenue.  The company can give no assurances that
additional capital that the company is able to obtain, if any, will
be sufficient to meet the company's needs.  If the company is
unable to raise additional capital or increase revenue from leasing
its product and providing testing services within the next twelve
months to continue to fund operations at its current cash
expenditure levels, the company's operations will need to be
curtailed.

"The foregoing conditions raise substantial doubt about the
company's ability to continue as a going concern."

"Although we do not have any current capital commitments, we expect
that over time we will increase our expenditures to continue our
efforts to grow our business and commercialize products and
services.  Accordingly, we currently expect to make additional
expenditures in both sales and marketing, and invest in our
corporate infrastructure.  We also expect to invest in our research
and development efforts.  We do not have any definitive plans as to
the exact amounts or particular uses at this time, and the exact
amounts and timing of any expenditure may vary significantly from
our current intentions," Mr. Walker explained.  

"However, in order to execute on our business plan, and given our
current available cash, we anticipate that we will need to raise
additional capital at opportune times.  There is no assurance that
additional financing will be available when needed or that
management will be able to obtain financing on acceptable terms or
whether or not we will generate sufficient revenues to become
profitable and have positive operating cash flow.  To improve
operating cash flow, in July 2015, we implemented measures to
reduce expenses and renegotiated longer payment terms in our
existing contracts.  However, there is no guarantee that our
efforts will be successful or sustainable, or that we will have
sufficient cash available when payments are due under the new
terms.  

"Accordingly, it is our intent to raise additional capital at
opportune times.  If we are unable to raise sufficient additional
funds when necessary, we may need to curtail making additional
expenditures and could be required to further scale back our
business plans, or make other changes until sufficient additional
capital is raised to support further operations. There can be no
assurance that such a plan will be successful."

As of September 30, 2015, the company had total assets of
$3,520,000, total long-term liabilities of $48,000, and total
stockholders' equity of $531,000.

SIGNAL INTERNATIONAL: Court Confirms Ch. 11 Liquidation Plan
------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Mary F. Walrath of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District
of Delaware on Nov. 24, 2015, issued a findings of fact,
conclusions of law and order confirming Signal International, Inc.,
et al.'s First Amended Joint Plan of Liquidation.

Michael J. Paque, a director at Kurtzman Carson Consultants LLC,
filed a declaration stating that 100% of holders of Class 4 -
Litigation Claims voted to accept the Plan, while 95.95% of holders
of Class 5 - General Unsecured Claims voted to accept the Plan.  A
full-text copy of Mr. Paque's Declaration is available at
http://bankrupt.com/misc/SItabdec1120.pdf

The Debtors, in support of confirmation of the Plan, maintains that
the Plan implements a global settlement resolving seven years of
protracted and highly contentious multi-action litigation and
encompassing a delicate balance of important competiting interests.
Notwithstading the Plan's manifest benefits and broad-based
support, eight objections were filed and two informal comments were
received.

Andrew R. Vara, Acting U.S. Trustee for Region 3, complained that
the Debtors' Plan is not confirmable because it contains
non-consensual third-party releases to be given by certain of the
Debtors' creditors in favor of numerous non-debtor parties, and
contains other releases and exculpation provisions that are
contrary to applicable law, including the standards set forth by
the Court in In re Washington Mutual, Inc., 442 B.R. 314 (Bankr.
D.Del. 2011) and In re Tribune Company, 464 B.R. 126 (Bankr. D.Del.
2011).

Max Specialty Insurance Company n/k/a Alterra Excess & Surplus
Insurance Company reserved its rights to object to the Plan to the
extent that the Debtors are unable to confirm that the Plan will be
sufficiently funded to provide for payment of Max Specialty's claim
when allowed or to the extent that the Plan is intended to modify
the terms of the Final DIP Order contrary to statements in the
Disclosure Statement.

These objections have been, or anticipated to be, resolved or are
not supportable based on the record of the Chapter 11 cases,
applicable law, or comparable Chapter 11 plans confirmed in the
jurisdiction of the Court, the Debtors asserted.

Judge Walrath held that, notwithstanding anything to the contrary
in the Asset Purchase Agreement, if any amounts remain in the MS
Escrow after the final adjudication by the Bankruptcy Court of the
claims and objections asserted by Max Specialty, Inc., those
amounts will be the property of and be reverted to the Purchaser.

Christopher S. Cunningham, chief financial officer of the Debtors,
filed a declaration in support of confirmation of the Plan.  Mr.
Cunningham maintained that the Plan complies with Section
1129(a)(1) of the Bankruptcy Code and that releases, exculpations
and injunctions are fair and necessary.

Jared Morris, assistant legal counsel of the Teachers' Retirement
System of Alabama and the Employees' Retirement System of Alabama,
filed a declaration in support of confirmation of the Plan and
stated that in the absence of the substantial concessions and
contributions of the funding parties and the other released
parties, it is doubtful that the sale transaction would be
consummated and the bankruptcy cases would most likely be converted
to Chapter 7 liquidation cases.  In that scenario, it is highly
unlikely that any creditors other than the RSA would receive
meaningful distributions, Mr. Morris asserted.

Before the Confirmation Hearing, the Debtors filed:

   * a third supplement to their Plan, a blacklined version of
     which is available at
     http://bankrupt.com/misc/SIplansupp1124.pdf

   * a second supplement to their Plan, dated Nov. 10, a full-text
     copy of which is available at

TWIN RINKS: Liquidating Plan Accepted by Voting Classes
-------------------------------------------------------
Twin Rinks At Eisenhower, LLC's Second Amended Plan of Liquidation
has been overwhelmingly accepted by voting creditors.

The Plan provides that:

  -- Allowed priority claims (Class 1) will be paid in full.
The Debtor does not believe there are any unpaid priority claims or
priority tax claims at this time.

  -- Allowed secured claims (Class 2) will receive their pro rata
share of cash remaining in the Liquidation Fund after the
establishment of a reserve for the benefit of, or distributions to,
allowed administrative claims, allowed priority claims, allowed
priority tax claims and Class 3 allowed unsecured claims sufficient
to satisfy the obligations to such classes under the Plan.   The
secured claim of CMBS Venture Funding LLC is allowed in the amount
of $5,248,670.

  -- Holders of allowed unsecured claims (Class 3) will be paid 75%
without interest from the proceeds of the sale of substantially all
of the assets of the Debtor.   The Debtor estimates that ultimately
allowed unsecured claims will be approximately $4,600,000.

  -- For allowed unsecured claims of insiders (Class 3A), each
holder will receive its pro rata share of cash remaining in the
Liquidation Fund after payment of higher ranked claims.  The Class
3A Claim of Clearview Capital Management LLC is allowed in the
amount of $42,136,702.53.  The other members of this Class are
GL-2012 Family Trust, Peter Ferraro, Chris Ferraro and Ferraro
Brothers Hockey, LLC.  The claim of the Ferraro Brothers Hockey,
LLC is disputed.

  -- The allowed interests in the Debtor (Class 4) will be
cancelled and holders of these interests won't receive
distribution.

Holders of secured claims (Class 2), unsecured claims (Class 3) and
unsecured claims of insiders (Class 3A) were entitled to vote on
the Plan.

Judge Robert E. Grossman on Oct. 20, 2015, entered an order
approving the Second Amended Disclosure Statement and set a Nov. 16
deadline to vote on the Plan, and a Nov. 23 confirmation hearing.

Jones & Schwartz, P.C., solicited the holders of claims in the
voting classes in accordance with the Disclosure Statement Order.
J&S's tabulation provides that:

  IMPAIRED          ____ACCEPT_______      _____REJECT_____
   CLASS            AMOUNT    NUMBER       AMOUNT    NUMBER
   -----            ------    -------      ------    ------
Class 2            $5,248,670    1           0          0
Class 3            $4,246,444   12           0          0
Class 3A          $42,778,721    2           0          0

The ballots submitted by Nassau County, which asserted a $5.066
million claim, and World Cup Concrete Corp., which asserted a
$104,000 claim, were excluded from the tabulation.  Both entities
accepted the Plan.  However, according to J&S, the ballots were
excluded because Nassau County and World Cup were not creditors of
the Debtor.

The Debtor said in a filing that it does not intend to confirm the
Plan over the objection of one or more impaired classes because no
such objections have been filed.

The Debtor added that it does not expect any witnesses, other than
the proponent’s witnesses, to testify as to any facts relevant to
confirmation.

2015, is available for free at:

[*] Distressed-Debt Exchanges Signal Pain in High Yield
-------------------------------------------------------
Lisa Abramowicz, writing for Bloomberg Brief - Distress &
Bankruptcy, reported that a growing number of debt holders are
making the discovery that there are corporate-bond documents that
are written in pen, and then there are those that might as well be
written on an Etch A Sketch given that they end up looking more
like a suggestion than a contract as soon as borrowers run into
trouble, and taking part in distressed exchanges, which are
becoming more prevalent in the speculative-grade bond market.

According to the report, the increase points to some deep pain in
the U.S. high-yield market, which will probably be borne most by
the leastaggressive investors.


[*] Fitch Says Firms Earnings to Remain Challenging in 2016
-----------------------------------------------------------
The market environment for securities firms across the globe will
remain challenging in 2016 due to prolonged weak trading results in
Fixed Income Currency and Commodities (FICC) trading businesses,
according to Fitch Ratings' 2016 Securities Firms Outlook report.

While Fitch's global sector outlook for securities firms' remains
negative, the Rating Outlook is Stable due to the maintenance of
solid capital and liquidity levels, more focused business models
for the larger firms, and a stabilizing regulatory environment.
Given this, Fitch has largely Stable Rating Outlooks for the larger
firms in North America and EMEA whose ratings already incorporate
some of the negative pressures on the sector.

Advisory and underwriting businesses should continue to be strong
in 2016. However, the potential strength will not be enough to
relieve overall earnings pressure as the markets businesses are
likely to remain challenging.

Fitch expects the larger firms will continue to focus on cost
cutting and the optimization of their client base, shedding
customers that absorb their balance sheet capacity without
generating sufficient returns. This in turn may create
opportunities for smaller players that are well positioned from a
capital level standpoint to pick-up the higher risk customers.

In 2016, Fitch expects inter-dealer brokers (IDBs) to continue to
diversify their revenue and customers towards more non-bank market
participants including hedge funds and asset managers. IDBs will
move towards competing in an 'all-to-all' market amongst technology
firms, exchanges and clearing houses rather than the more
traditional 'dealer-to-dealer' space. Reflecting the secular
decline in trading volumes, Fitch is already observing
consolidation in the IDB space in an effort to achieve greater
cost/scale efficiencies.

Retail brokers are perhaps best positioned amongst securities
firms, given their likely benefit from an interest rate hike and
continued expansion into banking and advice/asset management
activities. However, Fitch's view is that any rate hike will be
gradual and incremental thus having a slow impact on profitability
for retail brokers.

While earnings pressure will be an issue across the securities
firms sector next year, a stabilizing regulatory environment will
add clarity to the sector and allow firms to make more informed
strategic decisions. The larger firms will likely continue to look
for ways to lower their capital requirements by optimizing their
funding profiles and Fitch expects the largest securities firms
will be in compliance with future Total Loss Absorbing Capital
(TLAC) requirements when they are finalized.

[*] Junk-Bond Losses Pile Up as Traders Flee Any Whiff of Bad News
------------------------------------------------------------------
Sridhar Natarajan and Laura J. Keller, writing for Bloomberg Brief
- Distress & Bankruptcy, reported that the morning after
cancer-center firm 21st Century Oncology Inc. cut its earnings
forecast for 2015, money manager Rajay Bagaria woke up to find his
holdings of the junk-rated company's bonds had lost 19 percent of
their market value overnight.

According to the report, investors who own Chesapeake Energy
Corp.'s $11.3 billion of bonds watched about a third of their value
disappear over the past three weeks.  Similar free-falls have
appeared on the computer screens of traders in debt of retailer
Men's Wearhouse Inc., gambling-equipment maker Scientific Games
Corp. and the owner of New York Sports Club, the report related.

By one measure tracked by Deutsche Bank AG analysts, the debt of
the riskiest companies is selling off at four times the rate of the
least-risky junk borrowers -- a ratio that's typically 1.6 times,
the report further related.


                            *********

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.
