1111 MYRTLE AVENUE: Asks Extension of Plan Filing Date to July 27
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Debtor 77-79 Rivington Street Realty LLC asks the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court to further extend the period by which it has exclusive right
to file a plan of reorganization through and including June 27,
2016, and the period by which it has exclusive right to solicit
acceptances of that plan through and including August 24, 2016.

According to the Debtor, it continues to receive and evaluate
letters of intent for the commercial property at 1103-1111 Myrtle
Avenue, in Brooklyn, New York, in its continued efforts to sell the
property to a third party.  In addition, the Debtor also tells the
Court that it has started prosecution of two adversary proceedings,
including an adversary proceeding instituted against D & L Dollar,
Inc., one of the tenants at the Property, for unpaid rent and
additional rent.  The Debtor further asserts that while it does not
expect any creditor to file a competing plan, the Debtor seeks to
extend exclusivity so as to maintain control of the plan process
and preserve the status quo while the case continues to unfold.

77-79 Rivington Street Realty LLC is represented by:

     J. Ted Donovan, Esq.
     GOLDBERG WEPRIN FINKEL GOLDSTEIN LLP  
     1501 Broadway, 22nd Floor

           About 1111 Myrtle Avenue Group

1111 Myrtle Avenue Group LLC owns a commercial property located at
1103-1111 Myrtle Avenue, Brooklyn, New York.  The property is
leased to two tenants: (a) the United States of America occupies
most of the commercial space as a Social Security office, pursuant
to a lease coming up for renewal, and (b) Eagle 99 Cents Store
Inc., which runs a retail store, occupies the remainder of the
premises.  The Property is subject to a first mortgage lien
securing a loan in the principal amount of $6,283,545 received from
United International Bank ("UIB").

1111 Myrtle Avenue Group LLC filed a Chapter 11 bankruptcy petition
(Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 15-12454) on Sept. 1, 2015, after Myrtle
Property Holdings LLC backed out of a deal to buy the Debtor's
property.

The petition was signed by Aaron C. Ambalu as manager.  Judge
Shelley C. Chapman is assigned to the case.  

The Debtor disclosed total assets of $29.6 million and total
liabilities of $6.23 million.  The secured creditor is United
International Bank, which is owed $6.18 million on a first
mortgage.

The Debtor won approval to hire Goldberg Weprin Finkel Goldstein
LLP as counsel.

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

customers in the energy and environmental sectors.  Abengoa is one

On Nov. 25, 2015 in Spain, Abengoa S.A. announced its intention
to seek protection under Article 5bis of Spanish insolvency law,
a pre-insolvency statute that permits a company to enter into
negotiations with certain creditors for restricting of its
financial affairs.  The Spanish company is facing a March 28,
2016, deadline to agree on a viability plan or restructuring plan
with its banks and bondholders, without which it could be forced
to declare bankruptcy.

Company, LLC were converted to cases under chapter 11 of the
Bankruptcy Code and transferred to the United States Bankruptcy
Court for the Eastern District of Missouri.

On Feb. 24, 2016, Abengoa Bioenergy US Holding, LLC and 5 five
other U.S. units of Abengoa S.A., which collectively own, operate,
and/or service four ethanol plants in Ravenna, York, Colwich, and
Portales, each filed a voluntary petition for relief under Chapter
11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code in the United States
Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Missouri.  The cases

                 About Adelphia Communications

Based in Coudersport, Pennsylvania, Adelphia Communications
Corporation was once the fifth-biggest cable company.  Adelphia
served customers in 30 states and Puerto Rico, and offered analog
and digital video services, Internet access and other advanced
services over its broadband networks.

Adelphia collapsed in 2002 after disclosing that founder John Rigas
and his family owed $2.3 billion in off-balance-sheet debt on bank
loans taken jointly with the company.  Mr. Rigas was sentenced to
12 years in prison, while son Timothy 15 years.

Adelphia Communications and its more than 200 affiliates filed for
Chapter 11 protection (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Lead Case No. 02-41729) on
June 25, 2002.  Willkie Farr & Gallagher represented the Debtors in
their restructuring effort.  PricewaterhouseCoopers served as the
Debtors' financial advisor.  Kasowitz, Benson, Torres & Friedman
LLP and Klee, Tuchin, Bogdanoff & Stern LLP represented the
Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors.

Adelphia Cablevision Associates of Radnor, L.P., and 20 of its
affiliates, collectively known as Rigas-Managed Entities, were
entities that were previously held or controlled by members of the
Rigas family.  In March 2006, the rights and titles to these
entities were transferred to certain subsidiaries of Adelphia
Cablevision LLC.  The RME Debtors filed for Chapter 11 protection
(Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case Nos. 06-10622 through 06-10642) on March 31,
2006.  Their cases were jointly administered under Adelphia
Communications and its debtor-affiliates' Chapter 11 cases.

The Bankruptcy Court confirmed the Debtors' Joint Chapter 11 Plan
of Reorganization on Jan. 5, 2007.  The Plan became effective on
Feb. 13, 2007.

The Adelphia Recovery Trust, a Delaware Statutory Trust, was formed
pursuant to the Plan.  The Trust holds certain litigation claims
transferred pursuant to the Plan against various third parties and
exists to prosecute the causes of action transferred to it for the
benefit of holders of Trust interests.  Lawyers at Kasowitz,
Benson, Torres & Friedman, LLP (NYC), represent the Adelphia
Recovery Trust.


AEGIS TOXICOLOGY: S&P Affirms 'B' CCR & Revises Outlook to Neg.
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services affirmed its 'B' corporate
credit rating on Aegis Toxicology Sciences Corp. and revised the
outlook to negative from stable.

At the same time, S&P affirmed its 'B' rating on Aegis' first-lien
revolver and term loan.  The recovery rating on this debt remains
'3', indicating S&P's expectation of meaningful (at the higher end
of the 50% to 70% range) recovery in the event of payment default.
In addition, S&P affirmed its 'CCC+' rating on Aegis' second-lien
term loan.  The recovery rating on this debt is '6', indicating
S&P's expectation of negligible (0% to 10%) recovery in the event
of default.

The negative rating outlook reflects the new reimbursement
environment for toxicology testing servicers following CMS'
revisions to the Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes for
2016, and S&P's belief that the reimbursement environment remains
uncertain.  S&P has modified its base-case projections to reflect
these changes.  S&P also sees significant uncertainty regarding
reimbursement in 2017 and beyond, and S&P believes there is a
possibility that Aegis could perform below S&P's lowered
expectations, which could result in negative free cash flow over
time.

"The negative outlook on Aegis Toxicology Sciences Corp. reflects
the underlying uncertainty regarding CMS reimbursement after 2016,"
said Standard & Poor's credit analyst James Uko.  "Our 2016
base-case projections include Aegis sustaining leverage above 7x,
generating EBITDA margins 700 bps lower than 2015 levels, and
producing negligible cash flow," he added.

S&P could lower the rating to 'B-' from 'B' if S&P believes Aegis
will be unable to generate cash flow on a sustainable basis.  A
revenue decline above 20% and a margin contraction of 300 bps more
than S&P's base-case contraction for 2016 would reflect an
underperformance that leads to a downgrade.

S&P could revise the outlook to stable if it believed Aegis could
sustainably generate positive cash flow despite the current
reimbursement environment.  S&P's base case-projections for 2016
envision a double-digit revenue decline, a 700 bps decline in
EBITDA margins, and low-single-digit cash flows.



AJR PEAKVIEW: U.S. Trustee Wants Chapter 11 Trustee Appointed
-------------------------------------------------------------
The United States Trustee wants a chapter 11 trustee appointed in
the chapter 11 proceeding commenced by AJR Peakview, Inc.  The U.S.
Trustee asserts that an appointment of a trustee is appropriate
because:

     (1) Debtor's principal, Marvin Thomason, has engaged in
conduct in previous bankruptcy filings involving fraud and
dishonesty, and

     (2) the underlying circumstances involving Debtor and
FirstBank of Nebraska and Debtor's sole asset deem it in the best
interest of the estate to appoint a trustee.

The U.S. Trustee tells the Bankruptcy Court that AJR Peakview,
Inc., is owned by John Sneller and Marvin Thomason, with Mr.
Thomason acting as the primary operator.

The Debtor's only substantial creditor is FirstBank, and the
Debtor's sole asset is rental property that's the subject of a
foreclosure action pending in the Iowa District Court for
Pottawattamie County, Case EQCV112988, brought by FirstBank against
the Debtor.

The Bankruptcy Court has scheduled a number of hearings to take
place on April 14, 2016, to address:

     (A) the Debtor's motion for turnover and FirstBank's and the
U.S. Trustee's objections to that request;

     (B) motions to dismiss by FirstBank and the U.S. Trustee and
the Debtor's objection to those requests; and

     (C) FirstBank's motion for relief from stay and the Debtor's
objection to that move.  

FirstBank and the U.S. Trustee assert that AJR filed this chapter
11 case in bad faith because, among other reasons, it is
essentially a two-party dispute filed after years of litigation on
the eve of entry of a judgment in the foreclosure action.  In
addition, a receiver was appointed in the foreclosure action to
take possession and control of the Debtor's assets on Sept. 2,
2015.  In appointing the receiver, the State Court noted the risk
of material injury or impairment to the property and burden upon
the property and other collateral due to Debtor's harmful conduct
towards FirstBank.  

The U.S. Trustee relates that Mr. Thomason has engaged in
fraudulent and dishonest conduct in his previous attempts to seek
relief under the Bankruptcy Code.  On May 12, 1995, Mr. Thomason
filed for chapter 7 relief in the Bankruptcy Court in the District
of
Colorado, Case No. 95-14691.  The chapter 7 trustee commenced
Adversary Case No. 02-1375, which resulted in the entry of an order
revoking Mr. Thomason's s discharge on March 21, 2003.  The order
found Mr. Thomason had knowingly and fraudulently transferred his
50% ownership in T & S Partnership to his spouse, had repeatedly
failed to obey court orders to turn that property over the trustee,
and even transferring the interest to a third party after the court
determined the ownership interest was property of the bankruptcy
estate.

In 2010, Mr. Thomason again filed for chapter 7 relief in the
Bankruptcy Court in the District of Colorado, Case No.
10-20470-ABC.  On October 22, 2010, the United States Trustee for
Region 19 initiated a complaint to deny discharge, Adversary Case
No. 10-01778, alleging Mr. Thomason concealed his interest in an
oceanfront vacation property in Nova Scotia, noting the property
was awarded to him in 2009 in connection with his divorce, that Mr.
Thomason paid all expenses associated with the property, and that
he used it as his vacation home, even vacationing there for two
weeks shortly following his meeting of creditors.  When
confronted, Mr. Thomason claimed the property was worth only
$80,000.  It was discovered however that in late-2008, Mr. Thomason
offered the property for sale through a real estate agent for
$275,000 (Canadian).  On February 9, 2011, the court approved Mr.
Thomason's waiver of discharge.

The UST submits that in the event this Court finds dismissal is not
appropriate, reasonable grounds render it necessary to appoint a
trustee.

AJR Peakview, Inc., sought chapter 11 protection (Bankr. S.D. Iowa
Case No. 15-00980) on May 12, 2015.  


ALLY FINANCIAL: Fitch Affirms 'BB+' LT Issuer Default Rating
------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed Ally Financial's long-term Issuer
Default Rating at 'BB+' and short-term IDR at 'B'.  The Rating
Outlook is Stable.

                         KEY RATING DRIVERS

IDRs, VRs, AND SENIOR DEBT
The rating affirmations reflect Ally's strong franchise, leading
market position in the U.S. auto finance industry, high credit
quality assets, diverse funding base, ample liquidity, adequate
risk-adjusted capitalization and seasoned management team.

Rating constraints include Ally's concentrated and cyclical
business model, higher reliance on wholesale funding sources
relative to peers, potential increased price sensitivity of
internet deposits, uneven financial performance relative to peers
and credit performance uncertainty surrounding recent vintages that
were originated outside of Ally's previous relationships with GM
and Chrysler.

The Stable Rating Outlook reflects Fitch's view that while a number
of Ally's credit attributes are on an improving trend, the company
faces counterbalancing challenges in the near term, including
navigating an increasingly competitive underwriting environment
which is expected to lead to asset quality and residual value
reversion.

The expected introduction of capital returns to shareholders,
product expansion into mortgage and credit card lending, albeit on
a low risk basis, and the presence of an activist investor are not
explicit rating constraints, but are other notable considerations
in Fitch's analysis.

Profitability has continued to improve, albeit off of a modest
base, supported by solid loan growth, expanding margins due to
liability management efforts and expense rationalization, partially
offset by reserve building.  Adjusted net income increased to $1.3
billion in 2015, up from $1.15 billion in the prior year period.
Although core return on average assets (ROA) was essentially flat
with the prior year at 0.8% in 2015, core return on average
tangible common equity (ROTCE) increased to 9.4% in 2015, up from
7.9% in 2014.

Fitch expects 2016 financial performance to be supported by
moderate loan growth, a further reduction in Ally's funding costs
as more loans are funded through the bank, and continued operating
expense rationalization.  These positive contributors to earnings
will be partially offset by higher loss provisions as a result of
industry credit normalization and the mix shift within Ally's
portfolio.  In 2016, Ally expects to grow adjusted EPS by at least
15% over 2015, sustain a core ROTCE 10%+ and maintain a mid-40%
efficiency ratio.

Although consumer auto originations in 2015 were essentially flat
with the previous year at $41 billion, Ally's origination mix also
shifted meaningfully, following General Motors Company (GM)
electing to offer subvention loan and lease programs to dealers
exclusively through General Motors Financial Company, Inc.  Roughly
32% of Ally's 2014 originations consisted of GM subvented business.
While Ally was successful in being able to replace this volume
through other channels, given the dramatic shift in Ally's loan
origination mix over a relatively short period of time, the
underlying credit performance of the more recent vintages will be
an important driver of Ally's ratings.

Credit performance continues to gradually normalize.  Ally's retail
auto net charge-offs increased to 96bps in 2015, up 9bps from the
year-ago period, but remained well below historical levels.  Ally's
retail auto 30+ day delinquencies increased to 2.91% of total
loans, up 18bps from year-ago period.  Reserve coverage remained
strong at 1.4x total nonperforming assets and 1.3x net charge-offs
at Dec. 31, 2015.  Fitch expects credit performance will continue
to normalize, driven by a portfolio mix shift which includes a
higher proportion of nonprime loans and used car financing, loan
seasoning, and a moderation in used car prices supporting recovery
values.

In addition to internet-based deposits, Ally utilizes a diverse mix
of other sources across various debt markets including unsecured
debt, securitizations and bank loans.  Fitch views this strategy
positively as it reduces concentration risk and provides more
funding flexibility in the event that wholesale funding sources
(securitization and public debt markets) dry up or become cost
prohibitive, or if the online deposit platform experiences material
outflows in a rising interest rate environment.

At Dec. 31, 2015, deposits represented 47% of Ally's total funding
with secured debt accounting for 36% and unsecured accounting for
17% of total funding.  Short-term wholesale funding, including $3.4
billion of unsecured demand notes, represented only 2.5% of Ally's
total funding at Dec. 31, 2015.  Fitch views Ally's increased use
of retail deposit funding positively given the lower cost and
greater resiliency relative to wholesale funding during periods of
market stress.

Ally maintains adequate liquidity with $15 billion of total
consolidated liquidity at year-end 2015.  This compared to
unsecured debt maturities of $1.9 billion during 2016.  At the
parent company, Ally had $6.3 billion of total liquidity including
$300 million of committed unused capacity on its credit lines as of
the same date.

Fitch views unused credit line capacity as an additional liquidity
source, but potentially less reliable than cash or high-quality
liquid assets, given that it generally requires eligible assets to
collateralize incremental funding.  Fitch believes the value of
eligible assets could be reduced during a period of market stress,
thereby affecting the company's liquidity position.  That said,
Ally's loan portfolio is mostly unencumbered reflecting the
company's high mix of deposit and unsecured funding.

Ally remains well capitalized, as reflected by Basel III
Transitional Tier I capital and Tier I common ratios of 11.1% and
9.2%, respectively, as of Dec. 31, 2015.  The company estimates
that the fully phased-in Basel III Tier I common ratio was 8.7% at
Dec. 31, 2015.  Fitch views the company's capital position as
adequate given the risk profile of its balance sheet.

On March 11, 2015, Ally received a non-objection on its capital
plan from the Federal Reserve.  This resulted in Ally redeeming all
($2.6 billion) of its Series G preferred securities in 2015, and
repurchasing $325 million of the $1 billion Series A preferred
securities outstanding at the beginning of 2015.  In addition,
Fitch expects Ally to seek to redeem the remaining Series A
preferred securities over the course of 2016.  Further, Fitch
expects Ally to seek to include distributions to common
shareholders in the form of share repurchases and dividends as part
of its 2016 CCAR submission.  Ally has indicated that it
anticipates an earnings payout ratio of roughly 75%, which, when
coupled with the expected redemption of remaining preferred
securities, will slow the growth of Ally's regulatory capital
ratios.

            SUBORDINATED DEBT AND OTHER HYBRID SECURITIES

Ally's subordinated debt rating is rated one notch below Ally's VR
of 'bb+' in accordance with Fitch's assessment of each instrument's
respective non-performance and relative loss severity risk profile.
The subordinated note rating includes one notch for loss severity
given the subordination of these securities in the capital
structure, and zero notches for non-performance given contractual
limitations on interest payment deferrals and no mandatory trigger
events which could adversely impact performance.

The rating assigned to the trust preferred securities, series 2
issued out of GMAC Capital Trust I is 'b+', three notches below
Ally's VR of 'bb+'.  The rating reflects the subordination of the
securities and Ally's option to defer coupon payments, and is in
accordance with Fitch's assessment of each instrument's respective
non-performance and relative loss severity risk profile.

Ally's perpetual preferred securities, series A rating are rated
'b', four notches below Ally's VR of 'bb+' and one notch below the
trust preferred securities as the series A securities are junior in
Ally's capital structure.  The securities are non-cumulative, are
nonredeemable prior to May 15, 2016, and pay a fixed rate of 8.5%
per annum.  Beginning on May 15, 2016, dividends will accrue at a
LIBOR-based floating rate.

               SUPPORT RATING AND SUPPORT RATING FLOOR

Ally has a Support Rating of '5' and Support Rating Floor of 'NF'.
In Fitch's view, Ally is not systemically important, and therefore
the probability of sovereign support is unlikely.  Ally's IDRs and
VRs do not incorporate any support.

                        RATING SENSITIVITIES

VR, IDRs, AND SENIOR DEBT

Positive ratings momentum could potentially be driven by credit
performance on newer loan vintages that is consistent with Ally's
historical experience, measured growth in the increasingly
competitive lending environment, further improvements in
profitability and operating fundamentals, and further
diversification of its funding mix toward more stable retail
deposits while operating with strong capital levels at both the
parent and Ally Bank.

Ally's ability to retain online deposit customers in a
cost-effective manner in a rising rate environment will also be a
key consideration in evaluating the strength of its funding profile
relative to traditional bank models.

A material decline in profitability and/or asset quality, reduced
capital and liquidity levels, an inability to access the capital
markets for funding on reasonable terms, and non-compliance with
potential new and more onerous regulations are among the drivers
that could generate negative rating momentum.

In particular, Fitch remains focused on the credit performance of
Ally's consumer auto portfolio mix as it continues to shift towards
other origination channels (e.g. used vehicles, nonprime
originations, new dealer relationships) and away from GM lease
subvention during a period when the competitive environment has
intensified.  Although Ally's exposure to residual value risk
should decline further with the decline in subvented lease volume,
to the extent that the higher risk profile of Ally's auto loan
portfolio outpaces the reduction in residual value risk, Ally's
ratings or Outlook could be pressured.

Similarly, Ally's rollout of new product initiatives, while viewed
as a having the potential to provide revenue diversification
longer-term, also creates other risks including execution risks,
increased reliance on third-party execution and reputational risk
that could result in ratings and Outlook pressure.

           SUBORDINATED DEBT AND OTHER HYBRID SECURITIES

The subordinated debt ratings are directly linked to Ally's VR and
would move in tandem with any changes in the VR.

The preferred stock ratings are directly linked to Ally's VR and
would move in tandem with any changes in Ally's credit profile.

               SUPPORT RATING AND SUPPORT RATING FLOOR

Since Ally's Support and Support Rating Floors are '5' and 'NF',
respectively, there is limited likelihood that these ratings will
change over the foreseeable future.

Fitch has affirmed these ratings:

Ally Financial Inc.
   -- Long-term IDR at 'BB+';
   -- Senior unsecured debt at 'BB+';
   -- Viability rating at 'bb+';
   -- Subordinated debt at 'BB';
   -- Perpetual preferred securities, series A at 'B';
   -- Short-term IDR at 'B';
   -- Short-term debt at 'B';
   -- Support rating at '5';
   -- Support Floor at 'NF'.

GMAC Capital Trust I
   -- Trust preferred securities, series 2 at 'B+'.

GMAC International Finance B.V.
   -- Long-term IDR at 'BB+';
   -- Short-term IDR at 'B';
   -- Short-term debt at 'B';

The Rating Outlook is Stable.

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

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

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

AMERICAN HOSPICE: Needs Until May 9 to File Schedules
-----------------------------------------------------
American Hospice Management Holdings, LLC, and its affiliated
Debtors ask the U.S. Bankruptcy Court to extend through May 9,
2016, the deadline by which they must to file their schedules of
assets and liabilities and statements of financial affairs.

The Debtors anticipate that they may require additional time to
complete the Schedules and Statements specifically since the
ordinary operation of the Debtors' businesses requires the Debtors
to maintain voluminous books, records, and complex accounting
systems.  Collecting the necessary information requires an enormous
expenditure of time and effort on the part of the Debtors, their
employees, and their professional advisors due to the extensive
amount of information that must be assembled and compiled, the
multiple places where the information is located, and the hundreds
of employee and professional hours required to complete the
Schedules and Statements, the Debtors further assert.

Arizona; (ii) Houston, Texas; (iii) Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; (iv)
Atlanta, Georgia; (v) Richmond and Central Virginia; and (vi) New
Jersey.  The Company employs 365 people.

American Hospice and 10 of its affiliates filed separate Chapter 11
bankruptcy petitions (Bankr. D. Del. Proposed Lead Case No.
16-10670) on March 20, 2016.  Scott Mahosky signed the petition as
chief executive officer.  The Debtors estimated assets in the range
of $10 million to $50 million and liabilities of up to $50
million.

The Debtors have hired Denton US LLP as counsel, Pachulski Stang
Ziehl & Jones LLP as co-counsel, Harris Williams & Co. as

AMERICAN HOSPICE: Says Patient Care Ombudsman Not Necessary
-----------------------------------------------------------
American Hospice Management Holdings, LLC, and its affiliated
debtors ask the U.S. Bankruptcy Court to issn an order finding that
the appointment of a Patient Care Ombudsman in their Chapter 11
cases is unnecessary because the cases will not affect patient
rights, the level or quality of care provided, or any other
services the Debtors historically offered patients and their
families.

The Debtors also assert that a PCO is not necessary as they operate
on a tight budget and can ill afford the additional administrative
expenses associated with a PCO.

The Debtors tell the Court that they only provide facilities and
support staff to doctors who perform medical procedures to their
patients, and therefore, since these healthcare professionals are
not employed by the Debtors, they are not in bankruptcy.  Further,
the Debtors assert that they have a strong reputation in their
markets for providing quality patient care, hence the bankruptcy
filing is not caused by any failure on its part to provide adequate
care, facilities, or services to its patients.

Moreover, the Debtors are subject to a corporate integrity
agreement with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services,
which agreement provides for certain enhancements to the Debtors'
internal compliance programs and policies as well as an additional
layer of reporting and oversight to ensure that they are well-run
and continue to comply with applicable rules and regulations.

Community Bancorp (NYCB; 'BBB+/F2'/Outlook Stable), which is
scheduled to close 4Q16, Fitch expects to upgrade AF's ratings and
align them with NYCB's ratings.  The merger transaction is valued
at $2 billion.

Fitch reviewed AF as part of its U.S. Niche Real Estate Bank Peer
Review, which also includes Dime Community Bancshares, Inc.,
Emigrant Bancorp, Inc., and New York Community Bancorp, Inc.

While the business models of the U.S. Niche Real Estate Banks vary,
these banks are generally characterized by their limited deposit
franchises and geographic concentrations when compared to larger
U.S. banks.  Fitch views these limitations as ratings constraints
across the peer group.  The group is composed of banks with total
assets ranging from approximately $5 billion to approximately $50
billion that lend primarily in the New York City metropolitan
residential real estate market.

           KEY RATING DRIVERS - IDRs, VRs, AND SENIOR DEBT

Fitch believes integration risks are low given AF's simplistic
business model, the relatively good credit performance of AF's loan
book, and solid knowledge of the common footprint.  The financial
aspects of the transaction seem reasonable.  From a strategic
perspective, the merger offers NYCB a good opportunity to deepen
its mortgage lending business and broaden its overall
diversification given AF is essentially a niche mortgage real
estate lender.  Although integration and execution risks exist,
Fitch believes should challenges arise, they would be manageable
for NYCB.  AF's balance sheet is not complex, which should help the
integration process.  Additionally, NYCB has demonstrated a good
track record of successfully completing acquisitions through the
years.

The Rating Watch Positive reflects Fitch's view that NYCB's
acquisition addresses AF's challenges regarding earnings pressures
as well as interest rate risk.  Fitch expects to resolve AF's
Rating Watch upon the completion of the transaction with NYCB.
Completion of the transaction is expected in 4Q16 and subject to
customary closing conditions, including required regulatory
approvals.

The ratings are supported by AF's good asset quality, solid
underwriting, and strong capital position.  Key rating constraints
include AF's below-peer profitability, related interest rate risk,
and relatively weaker liquidity profile compared to similarly-rated
bank peers.

Fitch believes AF has good asset quality and considers it a key
credit strength.  As a result of a strategic portfolio shift, over
one-third of the bank's loan book is now comprised of NYC
multifamily real estate loans, the vast majority of which are
secured by rent-controlled properties.  Fitch views NYC multifamily
real estate loans as relatively safe assets because favourable rent
regulations generally keep building vacancies low and ultimately
reduce the volatility of cash flows generated by such properties.
Furthermore, AF significantly reduced its level of non-performing
assets (NPAs) through a bulk sale of non-accruing residential
mortgage loans in third quarter 2014 (3Q'14). The sale brought AF's
total non-performing assets down almost $200 million, or from 3.77%
of total loans, and real estate owned (as of 1Q'14) to 2.19% (as of
3Q'14).  Fitch observes that AF's level of NPAs relative to total
loans and real estate owned continues to remain low as of 4Q'15 at
2.27%.  No bulk sale transactions were undertaken in 2015.

AF's ratings are also supported by solid underwriting performance.
AF experienced low credit costs through the latest credit cycle
with net charge-offs averaging about 31 basis points (bps) over the
last 10 years, peaking at 62 bps in 2008.  Fitch believes AF's
underwriting standards are conservative and entail low
loan-to-value ratios and good cash flow coverage.

Earnings are a rating constraint, in Fitch's view.  AF is heavily
reliant on spread income and is affected negatively during periods
of low interest rates.  Historically, AF's earnings have also been
cyclical, which is incorporated into the ratings.

Fitch also views AF's liquidity profile as a rating constraint.
Although AF currently has sufficient liquidity, the company is
relatively more reliant on non-core funding sources such as FHLB
advances and repurchase agreements.  In 2015, average wholesale
funding balances totalled $4.1 billion or 27% of average assets.
Because AF has relatively higher reliance on wholesale funding, the
company has a relatively higher loan-to-deposit ratio and higher
cost of funds.

KEY RATING DRIVERS - SUPPORT RATING AND SUPPORT RATING FLOOR

AF has a Support Rating of '5' and Support Rating Floor of 'NF'. In
Fitch's view, AF is not systemically important and therefore, the
probability of support is unlikely.  IDRs and Viability Ratings
(VRs) do not currently incorporate any support.

KEY RATING DRIVERS - SUBORDINATED DEBT AND OTHER HYBRID SECURITIES

AF's preferred securities are rated five notches below its VR.
Preferred stock is notched two times from the VR for loss severity,
and three times for non-performance.  Hybrid securities ratings are
in accordance with Fitch's criteria and assessment of the
instruments' non-performance and loss severity risk profiles.

KEY RATING DRIVERS - SUBSIDIARY AND AFFILIATED COMPANY

The IDRs and VRs of AF's bank subsidiary benefits from the
cross-guarantee mechanism in the U.S. under FIRREA, and therefore
the IDRs and VRs of Astoria Bank are equalized across the group.

KEY RATING DRIVERS - LONG- AND SHORT-TERM DEPOSIT RATINGS

AF's uninsured deposit ratings are rated one notch higher than the
company's IDR and senior unsecured debt because U.S. uninsured
deposits benefit from depositor preference.  U.S. depositor
preference gives deposit liabilities superior recovery prospects in
the event of default.

                        RATING SENSITIVITIES

IDRs, VRS, AND SENIOR DEBT

AF's ratings will likely be upgraded upon NYCB's completion of the
merger.  Should NYCB be unable or unwilling to complete the merger
AF, Fitch would evaluate the reason and assess AF's ratings
accordingly.

SUPPORT RATING AND SUPPORT RATING FLOOR

AF's Support Rating and Support Rating Floor are sensitive to
Fitch's assumption as to capacity to procure extraordinary support
in case of need.

SUBORDINATED DEBT AND OTHER HYBRID SECURITIES

The ratings of subordinated debt and other hybrid capital issued by
AF and its subsidiary are primarily sensitive to any change in AF's
VR.

SUBSIDIARY AND AFFILIATED COMPANIES

As the IDRs and VRs of the subsidiaries are equalized with those of
AF to reflect support from their ultimate parent, they are
sensitive to changes in the parent's propensity to provide support,
which Fitch currently does not expect, or from changes in AF's
IDRs.

Fitch maintains these ratings on Rating Watch Positive:

Astoria Financial Corporation
   -- Long-term IDR 'BBB-';
   -- Short-term IDR 'F3';
   -- Senior Debt 'BBB-';
   -- Preferred Stock 'B'
   -- Viability Rating 'bbb-';
   -- Support Rating '5';
   -- Support Rating Floor 'NF'.

Astoria Bank (Formerly Astoria Federal Savings and Loan
Association)
   -- Long-term IDR 'BBB-';
   -- Short-term IDR 'F3';
   -- Long-term Deposits 'BBB';
   -- Short-term Deposits 'F2'
   -- Viability Rating 'bbb-';
   -- Support Rating '5';
   -- Support Rating Floor 'NF'.


ATK OILFIELD: Files Temporary Restraining Order vs. U.S. Creditors
------------------------------------------------------------------
Ernst & Young, Inc., the court-appointed receiver and authorized
foreign representative of ATK Oilfield Transportation Inc. and ATK
Oilfield Transportation (USA) Inc., sought emergency provisional
relief under the Bankruptcy Code, staying execution against the
Debtors' assets until and through the Bankruptcy Court's
consideration of its expedited petition for recognition of
proceedings currently pending in Canada.

On March 30, 2016, Alberta Treasury Branches, the Debtors' secured
creditor, filed an application for receivership with the Court of
Queen's Bench of Alberta in the Judicial Centre of Calgary, Canada.
The Canadian Court entered on April 1, 2016, a  receivership order
which provides for a stay against seizure of assets and litigation
akin to the automatic stay embodied in Section 362(a) of the
Bankruptcy Code.  The Receivership Order and papers submitted in
conjunction therewith establish that the Debtors are presently
insolvent and unable to pay their debts as they become due.

"[E]mergency provisional relief is necessary to prevent creditors
and other parties from continuing litigation or taking action
against the Debtors' U.S. assets that could prejudice and disrupt
the Canadian Proceedings, thereby interfering with the Receiver's
ability to conduct an orderly liquidation for the benefit of all
creditors and other stakeholders," said Steve A. Peirce, Esq., at
Norton Rose Fulbright US LLP, counsel to the Receiver.

Headquartered in Calgary, Alberta with operations throughout
Western Canada and the Permian Basin in the United States, the
Debtors' business consists of moving drilling rigs.  The Debtors'
assets, located in Canada and the United States, consist of various
equipment, rolling stock (trucks and trailers), contracts and
contract receivables, leased real property in Canada and Texas, as
well as owned real property located in Edson, Alberta and
Floresville, Texas.

ATK Oilfield Transportation Inc. and ATK Oilfield Transportation
(USA) Inc., filed Chapter 15 petitions in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court
for the Western District of Texas (Bankr. W.D. Tex. Case Nos.
16-70042 and 16-70043, respectively) on April 1, 2016.  Judge
Ronald B. King has been assigned the case.


ATK OILFIELD: Seeks Joint Administration of Cases
-------------------------------------------------
Ernst & Young Inc., as the court-appointed receiver and authorized
foreign representative of ATK Oilfield Transportation Inc. and ATK
Oilfield Transportation (USA) Inc., asked the Bankruptcy Court to
jointly administer the Debtors' Chapter 15 cases under Lead Case
No. 16-70042.

The Receiver said the granting of emergency relief for joint
administration will result in savings and ease of administration
for the Court and the creditors.

The Receiver plans to conduct an orderly liquidation of the assets
of the Debtors, a group of Canadian-based companies that have been
placed into a receivership proceeding under the Bankruptcy and
Insolvency Act in Canada.

ATLANTIC CITY, NJ: Council in Political Standoff with Governor
--------------------------------------------------------------
Patrick McGeehan, writing for The New York Times' DealBook,
reported that Atlantic City's government is on the verge of running
out of money, even after persuading its employees to defer their
paychecks for four weeks.

The city's mayor and City Council are engaged in a political
standoff with Gov. Chris Christie that turned nasty and personal
last week, the report related.

According to the report, on April 8, the speaker of the State
Assembly, Vincent Prieto, a Democrat, added fuel to Mr. Christie's
ire by introducing legislation intended to help Atlantic City that
the governor had vowed he would not sign.  Mr. Christie, a
Republican, has already sued the city's government for failing to
make timely payments to the local schools -- even though the school
board president said he opposed the lawsuit, the report further
related.

The nine unions that represent city workers agreed to defer payment
until property taxes for the second quarter of the year are
collected, a concession the City Council approved on April 7, the
report added.  Until that arrangement was worked out, the city
planned to shut City Hall and suspend all but the most essential
services until May, the report said.


AUTHENTIDATE HOLDING: Common Stock Delisted From NASDAQ
-------------------------------------------------------
The NASDAQ Stock Market LLC filed a Form 25 with the Securities and
Exchange Commission notifying the removal from listing or
registration of Authentidate Holding Corp's common stock on the
Exchange.

                     About Authentidate

of total revenues for the year ended June 30, 2015, compared to a
net loss of $7.14 million on $5.55 million of total revenues for
the year ended June 30, 2014.

EisnerAmper LLP, in New York, issued a "going concern"
qualification on the consolidated financial statements for the year
ended June 30, 2015, citing that the Company's recurring losses
from operations and negative cash flows from operations raise
substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going
concern.

As of Dec. 31, 2015, Authentidate had $3.41 million in total
assets, $9.55 million in total liabilities and a $6.14 million
total shareholders' deficit.


AXION INTERNATIONAL: Seeks Extension of Exclusive Period to June 29
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Axion International, Inc., et al., ask the U.S. Bankruptcy Court
for the District of Delaware to extend the exclusive period by
which the Debtors must (a) file a Chapter 11 plan through and
including June 29, 2016, and (b) solicit acceptances of that Plan
through and including August 29, 2016.

Although the Debtors have already filed their Joint Plan of
Liquidation and Disclosure Statement, the Debtors do not anticipate
confirming the Plan until May 2016, after the 120 day exclusivity
period has run, Scott D. Cousins, Esq., at Bayard, P.A., in
Wilmington, Delaware -- scousins@bayardlaw.com -- reminds the
Court.  Accordingly, he asserts, the Debtors file this Motion as a
precaution to ensure that their exclusive periods to file the Plan
and solicit acceptances of the same do not run while they seek to
confirm the Plan.

Although the Debtors have made substantial progress in
administering their estates, the sale of their assets and the
formulation and confirmation of the Chapter 11 Plan will require
additional time and effort so that the Debtors may maximize value
for the estates and its creditors, Mr. Cousins explains.

                    About Axion International

Axion International, Inc., et al., manufacture, market and sell
structural products and building materials, with an emphasis on
railroad ties and construction mats. As of Dec. 2, 2015, Axion had

BALMORAL RACING: Winds Down Remaining Operations
------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Donald R. Cassling of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Northern District of Illinois authorized Balmoral Racing Club Inc.
and Maywood Park Trotting Association Inc. to wind down and cease
remaining operations.

The Debtors are also authorized to terminate the engagement of
Rossoff & Company LLC as investment banker.

All racing activity at the Debtors' tracks has ceased due to the
loss of licensing and the Debtors have no ability to run any races
in 2016.  The Debtors' primary revenues come from pari-mutuel
wagering on the races run at their tracks.  The ITW and OTB
operations, by themselves, do not generate a profit for the
Debtors; without live racing available in 2016 there is no net
benefit to the estate of their continued operation.  Over the
course of a 9-month marketing and Sale Process, no bids have been
received for Maywood or Balmoral as going concerns.  Because the
Maywood Track Lease is deemed rejected pursuant to Section
365(d)(4) of the Code, and because racing operations have now
ceased entirely, the Debtors and RCO do not foresee any going
concern bids to be forthcoming.

                     About Balmoral Racing

Balmoral Racing Club, Inc., and Maywood Park Trotting Association,
Inc. operate pari-mutuel wagering at the Balmoral Park and Maywood
Park racetracks in Illinois under a license granted by the State of

Balmoral Racing Club (Bankr. N.D. Ill. Case No. 14-45711) and
Maywood Park Trotting Association (Bankr. N.D. Ill. Case No.
14-45718) filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on Dec. 24,
2014, to continue operations into 2015 and protect themselves
against property seizure.  Both cases were consolidated on Dec. 31,
2014.

Alexander F Brougham, Esq., Chad H. Gettleman, Esq., and Nathan Q.
Rugg, Esq., at Adelman & Gettleman, Ltd., serve as the Debtors'
bankruptcy counsel.  

Neither a trustee nor a committee of unsecured creditors has been
appointed in the Chapter 11 Cases.

BRIDGE CLUB: Court Affirms Order Granting Abram's Atty Fees
-----------------------------------------------------------
Samuel Rosen filed an appeal from three separate bankruptcy court
orders: (1) Order Granting Appellee Thomas L. Abrams' Emergency
Motion to Enforce Second Amended Plan and Order Confirming Second
Amended Plan and Release, Exculpation, Injunction and Discharge
Provisions Therein (2) Order Granting Thomas L. Abrams' Emergency
Motion to Enforce Settlement Agreement and for Recovery of
Attorney's Fees and Costs and (3) Order Granting Fees, Overruling
Opposition and Determining That Evidentiary Hearing Is Not
Necessary.

This appeal was triggered by a demand letter sent by the Appellant
to The Fort Lauderdale Bridge Club, Inc., demanding that the Bridge
Club sue Appellee Thomas Abrams, its counsel, for "malpractice" in
connection with his representation of the Bridge Club in bankruptcy
proceedings.  The bankruptcy court ruled that the demand letter
breached a settlement agreement signed by, among others, Rosen and
Abrams, which released Abrams from any and all claims that were or
could have been asserted against him based on his representation of
the Bridge Club.  As a result, the bankruptcy court awarded Abrams
attorney's fees and costs as the prevailing party under the
Settlement Agreement.  The bankruptcy court also found that the
Second Amended Joint Plan of Reorganization which had already been
confirmed, precluded Rosen's demand—a fact acknowledged by Rosen
himself before the bankruptcy court.

There are three issues before this Court on appeal. First, whether
Rosen has standing to appeal the bankruptcy court's ruling that,
under the Reorganization Plan, Rosen's claim is "barred, released
and permanently enjoined and shall not be brought by The Fort
Lauderdale Bridge Club, Inc. directly or by any persons claiming by
or through the Fort Lauderdale Bridge Club, Inc. directly or
derivatively." Second, whether the bankruptcy court erred in ruling
that Rosen breached the Settlement Agreement. Third, whether the
bankruptcy court abused its discretion in awarding Abrams $5,320 in
attorney's fees and costs as the prevailing party under the
Settlement Agreement.

In an Order dated March 10, 2016, which is available at
http://is.gd/YjfJsjfrom Leagle.com, Chief District Judge K.
Michael Moore of the United States District Court for the Southern
District of Florida affirmed the Bankrutpcy Court's Orders.

Abrams' pending Motion for Limited Relinquishment of Jurisdiction
is denied as moot. Per the bankruptcy court's Order Denying Motion
to Enforce Without Prejudice, Abrams may proceed to file a renewed
motion for entry of judgment against Rosen.

The case is SAMUEL D. ROSEN, Appellant, v. THOMAS L. ABRAMS,
Appellee, Case No. 1:15-cv-22380.

BSA INTERNATIONAL: Bankr. Ct. Doesn't Approve Disclosure Statement
------------------------------------------------------------------
The Honorable Scott C. Clarkson convened a hearing on Mar. 29,
2016, to consider a Motion filed by interested party Sea Sound
Aero-Technology, LLC, asking the Court to approve (1) a disclosure
statement explaining a first amended joint chapter 11 plan of
reorganization for BSA International Aerospace Co.; (2)
solicitation and tabulation procedures; (3) a modified plan
confirmation schedule; and (4) establishment of claim bar dates.
Judge Clarkson denied the Motion and memorialized his ruling in an
Order entered Apr. 8, 2016.

BSA International Aerospace Co., based in Riverside, Calif., sought
chapter 11 protection (Bankr. C.D. Cal. Case No. 15-18644) on Aug.

BURCON NUTRASCIENCE: Obtains $2-Mil. Financing from ITC Unit
------------------------------------------------------------
Burcon NutraScience Corporation announced in a press release that
it has entered into a convertible note purchase agreement on April
7, 2016, pursuant to which it will issue a convertible note  to
Large Scale Investments Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of ITC
Corporation Limited, for the principal amount of $2,000,000.

Funding by the Lender and the issuance of the Note is expected to
occur after May 4, 2016, but no later than May 13, 2016.  The Note
will bear interest at a rate of 8% per annum, calculated daily,
compounded monthly.  Interest will accrue on the Principal Amount
and will be payable on the earlier of three years from the issue of
the Note, the occurrence of an event of default as set out in the
Note, or voluntary prepayment by Burcon.

The Lender may convert the Principal Amount in whole or in part
into common shares in the capital of Burcon at any time commencing
on or after July 1, 2016, and up to and including the Maturity
Date.  The conversion price is $4.01 per Common Share, which
represents a premium of approximately 24% over the volume weighted
average trading price of the Common Shares on the Toronto Stock
Exchange for the 5 trading days immediately before April 7, 2016.  
Burcon also has the right, before the Maturity Date, upon written
notice to the Lender of not less than 30 days, to prepay in cash
all or any portion of the Principal Amount by paying to the Lender
an amount equal to the Principal Amount to be prepaid multiplied by
110%.  At any time on or after July 1, 2016, and up to the end of
such 30-day notice period, the Lender will have the right to
convert the Principal Amount in full or in part, into Common Shares
at the Conversion Price.  The Note and any Common Shares issued
upon the conversion of the Note will be subject to a four month
hold period under applicable Canadian securities laws.

The payment of the Principal Amount and all accrued and unpaid
interest thereon will be subordinated in right of payment to any
amount owing in respect of secured indebtedness of Burcon.  Subject
to prior TSX approval and the consent of the Lender, Burcon may pay
any interest that is due and payable under the Note through the
issuance of Common Shares at a conversion price equal to the volume
weighted average trading price of the Common Shares on the TSX for
the 5 trading days immediately prior to the date such interest is
due and payable.

The net proceeds from the issue of the Note will be used for
continued research and development of Burcon's protein extraction
and purification technologies, commercialization of Burcon's pea
protein technology, continued work on Burcon's intellectual
property portfolio and general corporate purposes.

ITC is an insider and related party of Burcon as it currently holds
7,477,821 Common Shares, representing approximately 20.87% of the
outstanding Common Shares as of April 7, 2016.  In addition, Mr.
Alan Chan and Ms. Rosanna Chau, directors of Burcon, are also
directors of ITC.  Accordingly, the Note is considered a "related
party" transaction pursuant to Multilateral Instrument 61-101 -
Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions.
Burcon is relying on the exemptions available under sections 5.5(a)
and 5.7(a) of MI 61-101 from the formal valuation and minority
shareholder approval requirements, respectively.  The Note was
approved by the board of directors of Burcon with Mr. Alan Chan and
Ms. Rosanna Chau abstaining from participating in the vote.  Burcon
will file a material change report containing the prescribed
disclosure under MI 61-101 on or before April 15, 2016.

"We are pleased to have arranged this financing with ITC
Corporation Limited and appreciate their continued support," said
Johann Tergesen, Burcon's president and chief operating officer,
adding, "Burcon has benefited from the support of ITC Corporation
Limited right back to our founding in 1998."

The issuance of the Note is subject to the approval of the TSX.

nutritional, functional and nutraceutical profiles.

For the nine months ended Dec. 31, 2015, the Company reported a
loss and comprehensive loss of C$4.95 million on C$73,240 of
revenue compared to a loss and comprehensive loss of C$5.04 million

As of Dec. 31, 2015, Burcon had C$5.56 million in total assets,
C$374,211 in liabilities and $5.18 million in shareholders'
equity.

"As at December 31, 2015, the Company had minimal revenues from its
technology, had an accumulated deficit of C$75,940,041, and had

doubt about the ability of the Company to meet its obligations as
they become due and, accordingly, its ability to continue as a
going concern," the Company stated in its quarterly report for the
period ended Dec. 31, 2015.

Entertainment Inc is a borrower traded in the secondary market at
92.10 cents-on-the-dollar during the week ended Friday, April 1,
2016, according to data compiled by LSTA/Thomson Reuters MTM
Pricing.  This represents a decrease of 0.55 percentage points from
the previous week.  Caesars Entertainment pays 600 basis points
above LIBOR to borrow under the $2.5 billion facility. The bank
loan matures on Sept. 24, 2020 and carries Moody's B3 rating and
Standard & Poor's CCC+ rating.  The loan is one of the biggest
gainers and losers among 247 widely quoted syndicated loans with
five or more bids in secondary trading for the week ended April 1.


CCO HOLDINGS: Fitch Rates New $1-Bil. Sr. Unsecured Notes 'BB-'
---------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has assigned a 'BB-' rating to CCO Holdings, LLC's
(CCOH) proposed issuance of $1 billion of senior unsecured notes
due 2026.  The ratings have been placed on Positive Watch.

Net offering proceeds are expected to be used to repurchase or
redeem a portion of CCOH's outstanding $600 million of 7% senior
notes due 2019 (7% senior notes) and $750 million of 7.375% senior
notes due 2020 (7.375% senior notes) and pay related fees and
expenses.  CCOH intends to use the remaining portion of net
proceeds from its $1.7 billion of 5.875% senior unsecured bond
issuance in February 2016, which is currently being held as cash
and cash equivalents, to repurchase or redeem a portion of CCOH's
outstanding 7% senior notes, 7.375% senior notes and outstanding
$1.5 billion of 6.5% senior notes due 2021 (6.5% senior notes) and
pay related fees and expenses and for general corporate purposes.
Additional uses could include funding a portion of potential
incremental cash needs related to Charter Communications, Inc.'s
(Charter) previously announced merger transaction with Time Warner
Cable, Inc. (TWC), whereby TWC shareholders elect to receive $115
per share in cash rather than $100 per share.  Any redemption or
repurchase of the 6.5% notes would not take place until after the
cash elections and required funding amount was determined.

Charter initially used a portion of net proceeds from the February
2016 offering to pay down amounts outstanding under its revolver
($273 million as of Dec. 31, 2015).

On May 23, 2015, Charter announced a merger with TWC for total
consideration as of April 7, 2016 of $208.72 per share, providing a
total valuation for TWC of $80.9 billion.  The offer consists of a
combination of cash and Charter stock totaling $60.0 billion for
all outstanding TWC shares.  TWC shareholders have two options for
the split between cash and Charter common stock: 1) $100.00 cash
and 0.5409 shares of Charter common stock for each share of TWC
common stock or 2) $115.00 cash and 0.4562 shares of Charter common
stock for each share of TWC common stock.  If shareholders choose
the latter option, Charter has the financial flexibility, which may
include a portion of the net proceeds from February's issuance, to
fund the increased cash needs.  If Charter requires additional
liquidity to satisfy cash funding needs for TWC shareholders, CCOH
has committed financing in place for $5.0 billion of unsecured
debt.

Fitch placed CCOH and Charter Communications Operating, LLC's (CCO)
'BB-' IDRs on Rating Watch Positive following the April 2015
announcement of the acquisition of Bright House Networks (Bright
House) from Advance/Newhouse Partnership (A/N).  The Bright House
acquisition is valued at $11.4 billion as of April 7, 2016.
Following the announcement that Comcast Corporation and TWC had
terminated their merger agreement, on May 18, 2015 Charter and A/N
reaffirmed their commitment to complete the Bright House
acquisition under the same economic and governance terms.  CCOH and
CCO are indirect wholly owned subsidiaries of Charter.

Fitch views both transactions positively and believes they will
strengthen Charter's overall credit profile.  Fitch anticipates
that Charter's total leverage, pro forma for both the TWC merger as
it is currently structured and the Bright House acquisition, would
be under 5.0x at closing.  Integration risks are elevated, and
Charter's ability to manage the integration process and limit
disruption to the company's overall operations is key to the
success of the transactions.

On a pro forma basis the combined company will serve 25 million
customer relationships and become the second largest cable multiple
system operator in the country.  Pro forma Fiscal Year 2015
revenues and EBITDA totaled approximately $37.4 billion and $13.2
billion, respectively.

Charter's operating strategies are having a positive impact on the
company's operating profile resulting in a strengthened competitive
position.  The market share-driven strategy, which is focused on
enhancing the overall competitiveness of Charter's video service
and leveraging its all-digital infrastructure, is improving
subscriber metrics, growing revenue and ARPU trends, and
stabilizing operating margins.

Resolution of the Rating Watch will largely be based on Fitch's
review of Charter's ultimate capital structure including assignment
of potential equity credit to the convertible preferred partnership
units and an assessment of the risks associated with Charter's
ability to integrate the new cable systems from TWC and Bright
House.

                       KEY RATING DRIVERS

All three entities regularly produce strong levels of free cash
flow (FCF) that provide the company with substantial financial
flexibility.  Charter management stated that, in the short term,
they will use FCF to meet existing and planned amortization, which
along with EBITDA improvement is expected to lower leverage by 0.6x
annually.  They also stated that there are no short-term plans for
shareholder friendly activities.

                          KEY ASSUMPTIONS

Due to the uncertainty surrounding approval of the TWC and Bright
House transactions, Fitch's forecast reflects Charter on a
standalone basis.

Fitch's key assumptions within the rating case for Charter
include:

   -- Low-to-mid single digit cable revenue growth highlighted by
      continued high-speed data and commercial service revenue
      growth.

   -- EBITDA margins remain flat reflecting ARPU growth from
      subscribers taking more advanced video services and higher
      speed data service tiers, offset by increased programming
      costs and spending to enhance customer service and products.


   -- Fitch estimates Charter will generate $400 million of FCF in

      2016, slightly less than the anticipated $1 billion to
      $1.2 billion of FCF during 2017 and 2018, respectively.  FCF

      in 2016 is negatively impacted by additional interest
      expense related to debt issued by CCOH Safari, LLC, CCO
      Safari II, LLC, and CCO Safari III, LLC to proactively fund
      the TWC and Bright House transactions.

                       RATING SENSITIVITIES

Positive rating actions would be contemplated given these:

   -- The TWC merger and the Bright House acquisition go forward
      as total leverage is expected to be below 5.0x;

   -- If the company demonstrates progress in closing gaps
      relative to its industry peers on service penetration rates
      and strategic bandwidth initiatives;

   -- Operating profile strengthens as the company captures
      sustainable revenue and cash flow growth envisioned when
      implementing the current operating strategy.

Fitch believes negative rating actions would likely coincide with
these:

   -- A leveraging transaction or the adoption of a more
      aggressive financial strategy that increases leverage beyond

      5.5x in the absence of a credible deleveraging plan;

   -- Adoption of a more aggressive financial strategy;

   -- A perceived weakening of Charter's competitive position or
      failure of the current operating strategy to produce
      sustainable revenue and cash flow growth along with
      strengthening operating margins.

                            LIQUIDITY

Fitch regards Charter's liquidity position and overall financial
flexibility as satisfactory given the rating category.  Charter's
financial flexibility will improve in step with the growth of free
cash flow generation.  Charter generated $519 million of FCF during
the year ended Dec. 31, 2015.  Although FCF had been increasing due
primarily to a decrease in capital expenditures driven by the
completion of Charter's transition to all digital in 2014, 2015 was
negatively impacted by interest expense associated with Safari
Entities debt.  The company's liquidity position includes cash of
$5 million, excluding cash held in escrow at Safari Entities, and
is supported by $961 million of borrowing capacity from its $1.3
billion revolver and anticipated FCF generation.  Commitments under
the company's revolver will expire in April 2018.  Fitch notes that
the revolver will increase to $3.0 billion as part of the TWC and
Bright House transactions.

Charter's leverage as of the last 12 months ended Dec. 31, 2015,
was 4.1x, excluding the debt issued by Safari Entities.  Charter's
total leverage target remains unchanged, ranging between 4x and
4.5x, and will remain unchanged following the completion of the
transactions.  Fitch recognizes that a large portion of the TWC
transaction will involve senior secured debt, both at TWC and the
Safari Entities, including approximately $22.5 billion of existing
TWC senior secured debt.  All existing TWC and Safari Entities
first-lien debt will be rolled into CCO and will have equal and
ratable security with all existing Charter first lien debt.

Charter recently stated it expects first lien leverage of 3.5x
following the completion of the transactions.  Depending on the
ultimate capital structure, a one- or two- notch upgrade of
Charter's IDR and existing ratings could be possible provided that
pro forma senior secured leverage is at or below 4x and total
leverage does not exceed 5x.

Charter proactively extended its maturity profile and only 5% of
outstanding debt matures before 2019, including $93 million and
$102 million during 2016 and 2017, respectively.  Fitch believes
that Charter has the financial flexibility to retire near term
maturities with cash on hand and future FCF.

FULL LIST OF RATING ACTIONS

Fitch has assigned this rating:

CCO Holdings, LLC

Charter Communications Operating, LLC
   -- Long-term IDR 'BB-';
   -- Senior secured 'BB+'.

   -- Senior unsecured 'BB'.

The current Rating Outlook for these ratings is Stable:

CCO Safari II, LLC
   -- Senior secured 'BBB-'.

CCO Safari III, LLC
   -- Senior secured 'BBB-'.


CCO HOLDINGS: S&P Rates Proposed $1BB Sr. Unsecured Notes 'BB-'
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its 'BB-' issue-level
rating and '4' recovery rating to CCO Holdings LLC and CCO Holdings
Capital Corp.'s (CCOH's) proposed $1 billion senior unsecured
notes.  The '4' recovery rating indicates S&P's expectation for
average recovery (30%-50%; lower half of the range) of principal
for noteholders in the event of a payment default.  CCOH are
subsidiaries of Charter Communications Inc. (CCI).

At the same time, S&P placed its 'BB-' issue-level rating on the
proposed notes on CreditWatch with positive implications, which is
in line with the CreditWatch status of the company's existing
senior unsecured debt.

S&P expects that CCOH will use the proceeds from the proposed notes
offering to redeem a portion of its outstanding 7% senior notes due
2019 and 7.375% senior notes due 2020.  The company will use the
remaining proceeds from its $1.7 billion CCOH 5.875% notes issued
in February 2016 to redeem any remaining 7% senior notes and 7.375%
senior notes, and a portion of its 6.5% notes due 2021.

Given that the proposed debt will remain in place regardless of
whether CCI's pending acquisitions of Time Warner Cable Inc. and
Bright House Networks close, the ratings on the proposed debt are
based on S&P's 'BB-' corporate credit rating on CCI and not on
S&P's prospective view of the new Charter.  If the deals close as
contemplated, S&P expects to raise the issue-level rating on the
proposed notes two notches to 'BB+'--in line with the prospective
corporate credit rating on new Charter.  Like the existing senior
unsecured notes, CCI guarantees the proposed notes on a senior
unsecured basis.  However, the guarantee will fall away for all of
CCOH's notes when the acquisitions are completed and CCI merges
into CCOH.  S&P's 'BB-' corporate credit rating on CCI remains on
CreditWatch positive, where S&P placed it on March 31, 2015.

CHAPARRAL ENERGY: Moody's Lowers PDR to C-PD/LD
-----------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded Chaparral Energy, Inc.'s
Probability of Default Rating (PDR) to C-PD/LD from Ca-PD, its
Corporate Family Rating (CFR) to C from Ca and its unsecured notes
rating to C from Ca following the company's announcement that it
did not make the interest payment due on its 8.25% Senior Notes
following the expiration on April 1 of the 30-day grace period with
respect to its March 1, 2016 scheduled payment date. The
Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating of SGL-4 remains unchanged and
the outlook was changed to stable.

The following ratings were Downgraded:

Issuer: Chaparral Energy, Inc.

-- Probability of Default Rating, to C-PD/LD from Ca-PD

-- Corporate Family Rating, to C from Ca

-- Senior Unsecured Regular Bond/Debenture, to C (LGD6) from Ca
    (LGD4)

Outlook Actions:

-- Outlook changed to Stable

RATINGS RATIONALE

On March 1, 2016, Chaparral announced that it would not make the
interest payment due on its $400 million ($384 million outstanding)
8.25% Senior Notes due 2021, electing its right to exercise a
30-day grace period with respect to the interest payment's
scheduled March 1 payment date. On April 5, Chaparral announced
that it had entered into a forbearance agreement with certain
noteholders of its 8.25% Senior Notes, its 9.875% Senior Notes and
its 7.625% Senior Notes. Under the forbearance agreement,
noteholders have agreed to forbear from exercising remedies until
the earliest of April 15, 2016, the occurrence of a different event
of default under an indenture, a material breach of the terms of
the Note Forbearance Agreement, the termination of the forbearance
period in the company's similarly structured senior secured bank
forbearance agreement and the exercise by any stockholder under the
Stockholder Agreement of the right to compel Chaparral to sell all
or substantially all of the equity interests in the company. The
forbearance agreement is intended to provide Chaparral with
additional flexibility to continue discussions with its creditors
regarding the company's debt and capital structure. However,
Moody's does not recognize forbearance agreements and treats the
missed interest payment on the senior notes beyond the 30-day grace
period as a default.

On April 5, Chaparral also announced that it did not make the
interest payment due on its $300 million ($298 million outstanding)
9.875% senior Notes due 2020, electing its right to exercise a
30-day grace period with respect to the interest payment's
scheduled April 1, 2016 payment date.

The downgrade of the CFR to C from Ca and the senior unsecured
notes to C from Ca reflect the default, and Moody's view on the
potential overall recovery. While the unsecured notes rating under
Moody's Loss Given Default (LGD) methodology is Ca, Moody's
believes the C rating better reflects the highly uncertain recovery
prospects given the subordination of the unsecured notes to the
company's secured revolving credit facility's priority claim to the
company's assets

Chaparral Energy, Inc. is a privately held independent exploration
and production company headquartered in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

CLAIRE'S STORES: Moody's Cuts Corporate Family Rating to Caa3
-------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded Claire's Stores, Inc.
Corporate Family Rating (CFR) and Probability of Default Rating to
Caa3 and Caa3-PD, respectively. Moody's also downgraded the first
lien debt to Caa2, senior secured second lien notes to Caa3, and
unsecured notes to Ca. The subordinated notes were affirmed at Ca.
In a related action, Moody's affirmed Claire's SGL-4 Speculative
Grade Liquidity Rating. The outlook is negative.

"[The] downgrades reflect our view that there is an acute
likelihood of a debt restructuring ahead of the June 2017 maturity
of Claire's subordinated notes due to continuing erosion of
liquidity and weak operating performance," stated Moody's Vice
President Charlie O'Shea. "Claire's continues to feel the
ill-effects of declining mall traffic and an increasingly
competitive landscape, with the result debt/EBITDA has risen to
over 8 times," continued O'Shea. "The new ratings further
acknowledge the challenges faced by Claire's to grow earnings
sufficient to support its presently unsustainable capital
structure."

The affirmation of the company's liquidity rating at SGL-4
primarily reflects the expectation that the company will not
generate free cash flow and therefore will maintain low levels of
cash. In addition, Claire's will continue to be heavily reliant on
borrowing under its revolving credit facilities to fund working
capital and capital expenditures. Considering Claire's was unable
to "zero out" its revolver in the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2015, it
is unlikely that the company will have sufficient revolver capacity
after funding the first nine months of fiscal 2016, leaving it with
little flexibility.

The following ratings are downgraded:

-- Probability of Default Rating, to Caa3-PD from Caa2-PD

-- Corporate Family Rating, to Caa3 from Caa2

-- $115M Senior Secured Bank Credit Facility due 2017, to
    Caa2(LGD3) from B3(LGD3)

-- $1125M Backed Senior Secured First Lien Notes due 2019 to
    Caa2(LGD3) from B3(LGD3)

-- $210M Backed Senior Secured First Lien Notes due 2020, to
    Caa2(LGD3) from B3(LGD3)

-- $450M Backed Senior Secured Second Lien Notes due 2019, to
    Caa3(LGD4) from Caa2(LGD4)

-- $320M Senior Unsecured Notes due 2020, to Ca (LGD4) from Caa3
    (LGD4)

Outlook Actions:

-- Outlook, Changed To Negative From Stable

The following ratings are affirmed:

-- Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating, SGL-4

-- $259M Backed Senior Subordinated Notes due 2017, Ca (LGD6)

RATINGS RATIONALE

"Claire's Caa3 Corporate Family Rating reflects its unsustainable
capital structure at present operating performance levels, making
some sort of restructuring likely, especially given looming debt
maturities. The rating also reflects the company's very high
leverage, weak interest coverage, and precarious liquidity, with
the possibility that the revolver will be insufficient to fund
operations over the next 12 months. Claire's debt to EBITDA was
approximately 8.3 times and EBITA to interest expense was 0.7 times
for the twelve months ended January 30, 2016. Moody's expects
Claire's credit metrics will remain weak over the next twelve
months given its substantial debt level (nearly $2.4 billion) and
continued earnings pressure. Moody's anticipates Claire's earnings
will remain flat off of its 2015 levels due to the increasingly
competitive landscape, difficult mall traffic trends, and economic
headwinds surrounding Europe (including FX volatility and terror
threats). Conversely, Moody's expects residual positive momentum as
Claire's continues to strategically shift its focus "off-mall" and
expands the concession format, leverages wholesale opportunities,
and grows e-commerce. Claire's Caa3 Corporate Family Rating is
supported by its value positioned price points, international
geographic presence, well-known brand name, and despite recent
declines, its EBITDA margin remains high relative to its specialty
peers. The negative outlook reflects our concerns that a
restructuring event, which we would likely consider a limited
default, is likely to occur ahead of the June 2017 maturity, as
well as our expectation that Claire's operating performance will
remain weak, with negative free cash flow through the first nine
months of 2016, thus increasing its reliance on the revolving
credit facilities with minimal excess capacity. Given the continued
deterioration of operating performance and capital structure
concerns, an upgrade of Claire's is unlikely over the near term. In
addition, the increased likelihood of a debt restructuring
depresses the possibility of upward ratings momentum. Ratings could
be downgraded if Claire's operating performance, liquidity, and/or
interest coverage deteriorate, or if the company's probability of
default were to increase for any reason."

Claire's Stores, Inc., headquartered in Hoffman Estates, IL, is a
specialty retailer of value-priced jewelry and fashion accessories

COLUMBIA HOSPITALITY: Asks Court Approval of Cash Collateral Use
----------------------------------------------------------------
Columbia Hospitality Services, Inc., owner of a hotel located at
2904 Clark Lane, Columbia, MO 65202, known as Best Western Hotel,
submitted a motion with the Bankruptcy Court seeking permission to
use cash collateral from income of its hotel operations.  The
Debtor needs to use cash collateral in order to fund its operation
and its plan of reorganization.

The Debtor values the property, including the real estate and
personal property, at approximately $3.5 million fair market value.
For the first three months of 2016, the Debtor generated income of
$124,774, Court documents show.

Private Capital Group, Inc. asserts blanket security interests in
the assets of the Debtor, including the cash receipts.  As adequate
protection, the Debtor proposes to provide Private Capital $18,230
per month plus any additional amount which would guarantee Private
Capital a minimum of 20 percent of the gross each month, commencing
May 1, 2016, until such time as the Debtor has a confirmed plan.

According to Gwen Froeschner Hart, Esq., at Shurtleff Froeschner
Harris, LLC, attorney for the Debtor, the hotel is worth
substantially less than the debt owed to Private Capital mainly due
to the fact that the origination fees paid to Private Capital for
the loan in question were exorbitant, and the default interest
which Private Capital is charging is 36 percent.

The Debtor said it would intend in its plan to write down the debt
of Private Capital to the fair market value of the hotel and its
assets.
   
Columbia Hospitality filed a Chapter 11 bankruptcy petition (Bankr.
W.D. Mo. Case No. 16-20272) on April 4, 2016.  George Pate signed
the petition as president/secretary.  The Debtor listed total
assets of $11.9 million and total liabilities of $9.71 million.


COLUMBIA HOSPITALITY: Hires Gwen Froeschner Hart as Attorney
------------------------------------------------------------
Columbia Hospitality Services, LLC, seeks permission from the
Bankruptcy Court to appoint Gwen Froeschner Hart and the law firm
of Shurtleff Froeschner Harris, LLC, as its legal counsel.

Gwen Froeschner Hart will:

   (a) advise the Debtor with respect to its powers and duties as
       a Debtor-in-Possession in the continued management and
       operation of its business;

Columbia Hospitality Services, LLC, operates a Best Western Hotel
located at 2904 Clark Lane, Columbia MO 65202, which has been
closed for sometime and  is in the process of reopening.

Columbia Hospitality filed a Chapter 11 bankruptcy petition (Bankr.
W.D. Mo. Case No. 16-20272) on April 4, 2016.  George Pate signed
the petition as president/secretary.  The Debtor listed total

COLUMBIA HOSPITALITY: Secured Creditor Seeks Relief from Stay
-------------------------------------------------------------
Private Capital Group, Inc., a secured creditor of Columbia
Hospitality Services, LLC, asked the Bankruptcy Court to lift the
automatic stay to permit it to exercise its right to foreclose upon
the real estate of the Debtor.

Private Capital said the Debtor defaulted under a Sweep Agreement
executed on Oct. 10, 2014, and a Secured Promissory Note dated Aug.
23, 2013.  The Movant asserted that the balance due as of Jan. 31,
2016, was $9,357,016 and no payments have been made by the Debtor
since that date.  The property which secures the debt, based on a
2015 appraisal, is worth $4,900,000, the Movant said.

According to Private Capital, for default in the payment of said
debt secured by a Deed of Trust executed by Debtor, dated Aug. 23,
2013, a Notice of Trustee's Foreclosure Sale was served on the
Debtor, and a Notice of Trustee's Sale was published according to
law.

The property subject for foreclosure is located at Lot 1A of the
Administrative Replat of Pate Subdivision, a subdivision located in
the Northeast Quarter of Section 8, Township 48 North, Range 12
West, of the 5th Principal Meridian, in the City of Columbia,
Missouri, more commonly known as 2904 Clark Lane, Columbia MO,
65202 (independently owned and operated by Best Western).

Private Capital has alleged that the bankruptcy filing was not
initiated in good faith as the Debtor filed the petition a day
prior to the scheduled foreclosure sale on April 5, 2016.

"It appears that this 2016 Bankruptcy was initiated not in good
faith and for the sole purpose of delaying or hindering the
foreclosure sale..." said Diana C. Carter, Esq., at Brydon,
Swearengen & England P.C., counsel to the Movant.  "As such, the
automatic stay should not operate to stop the foreclosure sale,"
she asserted.

A foreclosure sale of the subject property was previously scheduled
for July 21, 2015, but that sale was stopped by the filing of
Debtor's first bankruptcy petition on July 17, 2015 (Case No.
15-20685-drd-11).  In the 2015 Bankruptcy, the Movant sought relief
from the automatic stay.  The request for relief from the stay was
granted on Dec. 15, 2015.  The 2015 Bankruptcy was dismissed by the
court on Jan. 11, 2016.

"Upon information and belief, there has not been a substantial
change in the financial affairs of the Debtor since the 2015
Bankruptcy was dismissed, and there is no reason to conclude that
this 2016 Bankruptcy will be concluded with a confirmed plan that
will be fully performed," Ms. Carter said in Court papers.

                        Bankruptcy Warning

"If our operating performance declines, we may in the future need
to seek waivers from the required lenders under our 2015 Credit
Agreement to avoid being in default.  We cannot assure that such
waivers will be granted or that we will otherwise be able to avoid
a default.  If we are unable to generate sufficient cash flow and
are otherwise unable to obtain funds necessary to meet required
payments of principal, premium, if any, or interest on such
indebtedness, or if we otherwise fail to comply with the various
covenants, including financial and operating covenants, in the
instruments governing our indebtedness, including our 2015 Credit
Agreement, we could be in default under the terms of the agreements
governing such indebtedness.  In the event of such default, the
holders of such indebtedness could elect to declare all of the
funds borrowed thereunder to be due and payable, together with any
accrued and unpaid interest, the lenders under our 2015 Credit
Agreement could elect to terminate their commitments, cease making
further loans, foreclose on our assets pledged to such lenders to
secure our obligations under the 2015 Credit Agreement, in each
case, which could force us into voluntary or involuntary bankruptcy
or cause us to discontinue operations or seek a purchaser of our
business or assets.  In addition, a default under our 2015 Credit
Agreement would trigger a cross default under our other agreements
and could trigger a cross default under any agreements governing
our future indebtedness," the Company stated in its annual report
for the year ended Dec. 31, 2015.

DIAMONDHEAD CASINO: Recurring Losses Cue Going Concern Doubt
------------------------------------------------------------
Diamondhead Casino Corporation filed with the Securities and
Exchange Commission its annual report on Form 10-K disclosing
net income applicable to common stockholders of $53,242 for the
year ended Dec. 31, 2015, compared to a net loss applicable to
common stockholders of $3.37 million for the year ended Dec. 31,
2015.

As of Dec. 31, 2015, Diamondhead had $5.63 million in total assets,
$7.80 million in total liabilities and a total stockholders'
deficiency of $2.17 million.

The Company has had no operations since it ended its gambling
cruise ship operations in 2000.  The Company has incurred losses
over the past several years, has no operations, generates no
operating revenues.

Friedman LLP, in New York, issued a "going concern" qualification
on the consolidated financial statements for the year ended
Dec. 31, 2015, citing that the Company has incurred significant
recurring net losses over the past few years.  In addition, the
Company has no operations, except for its efforts to develop the
Diamondhead, Mississippi property.  Such efforts may not contribute
to the Company's cash flows in the foreseeable future. These
conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to
continue as a going concern.

DIME COMMUNITY I: Fitch Affirms 'BB-' Trust Preferred Ratings
-------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed the Long- and Short-Term Issuer Default
Ratings for Dime Community Bancshares, Inc. (DCOM) and its
principal banking subsidiary, The Dime Savings Bank of
Williamsburgh at 'BBB/F2'.  The Rating Outlook is Stable.

Fitch reviewed DCOM as part of its U.S. Niche Real Estate Bank Peer
Review, which also includes Astoria Financial Corporation, Inc.,
Emigrant Bancorp, Inc., and New York Community Bancorp, Inc.

While the business models of the U.S. Niche Real Estate Banks vary,
these banks are generally characterized by their limited deposit
franchises and geographic concentrations when compared to larger
U.S. banks.  Fitch views these limitations as ratings constraints
across the peer group.  The group is composed of banks with total
assets ranging from approximately $5 billion to approximately $50
billion that lend primarily in the New York City metropolitan
residential real estate market.

           KEY RATING DRIVERS - IDRs, VRs AND SENIOR DEBT

The ratings are supported by DCOM's consistent execution, strong
asset quality, and solid underwriting performance.  Key rating
constraints include DCOM's weak liquidity profile, narrow business
model and volatility of earnings through rate cycles.

DCOM's primary ratings strength is its demonstrated ability to
execute on its multifamily lending strategy through various cycles.
DCOM's asset quality remains very strong with non-performing asset
levels well below those of peer averages.  Fitch believes DCOM's
asset quality is positively affected by favourable rent regulations
in New York City, which generally keep building vacancies low and
ultimately reduce the volatility of cash flows generated by
regulated properties.

Very solid underwriting performance also supports DCOM's ratings.
DCOM experienced minimal losses through the latest credit cycle
with net charge-offs averaging only 11 bps over the last 10 years.
Fitch observes that DCOM exhibited particular proficiency in its
niche, experiencing lower credit costs than its multifamily real
estate-focused peers during and after the financial crisis.

Over the last two years, DCOM loan growth has exceeded historical
rates.  The CAGR in total loans between the beginning of 2014 and
the end of 2015 was 13%.  While in line with growth projections
released by management and therefore consistent with DCOM's
strategy, Fitch views this as a shift in DCOM's risk appetite.
After-tax profit from the recent sale of certain real estate assets
in Williamsburg, Brooklyn should boost capital to support DCOM's
growth via new loan originations in 2016.  However, Fitch expects
moderate deterioration in DCOM's risk-based capital ratios over the
rating horizon, albeit off a high base.

While DCOM's earnings performance remains solid, the ROAA dropped
to 0.96% for the year ended Dec. 31, 2015.  This is the first time
in the last six years that the ROAA has dropped below 1%.  DCOM's
earnings profile is concentrated in spread income from primarily
the multifamily asset class, and since earnings are concentrated in
spread income, profitability can be highly variable through rate
cycles.  Given DCOM's liability sensitive balance sheet, Fitch
expects profitability will face headwinds as rates normalize.

Similar to its U.S. Niche Real Estate Bank peers, DCOM's liquidity
profile remains a constraint on the overall rating for the
institution.  DCOM's business strategy tends to be more
transaction-oriented, and as a result, its funding profile does not
benefit from a sizeable relationship-driven deposit base.  As a
result, DCOM operates with a high loan-to-deposit ratio and is
heavily dependent on wholesale funding.  As of year-end 2015,
DCOM's loan-to-deposit ratio was the highest in its four-bank peer
group at 143%.

KEY RATING DRIVERS - SUPPORT RATING AND SUPPORT RATING FLOOR

The Support Rating of '5' and Support Ratings Floor of 'NF' reflect
Fitch's view that Dime Community Bancshares and The Dime Savings
Bank of Williamsburgh are not considered systemically important and
therefore, the probability of support is unlikely.

KEY RATING DRIVERS - SUBORDINATED DEBT AND OTHER HYBRID SECURITIES
DCOM's trust preferred issuances are rated four notches below
DCOM's VR of 'bbb' in accordance with Fitch's assessment of the
instruments' non-performance and loss severity risk profiles.

KEY RATING DRIVERS - HOLDING COMPANY

DCOM's IDR and VR are equalized with those of its bank subsidiary,
The Dime Savings Bank of Williamsburgh, reflecting its role as the
bank holding company, which is mandated in the U.S. to act as a
source of strength for its bank subsidiaries.

RATING SENSITIVITIES - IDRs, VRs AND SENIOR DEBT

Fitch sees limited upside in the company's ratings over the near
term due to aforementioned concentrations in the loan portfolio,
undiversified earnings profile, and relatively weak liquidity
profile.

Negative ratings pressure could occur if there were a significant
change to rent regulations in New York City.  DCOM has historically
benefitted from rent regulations on multifamily apartments in New
York City.

The ratings take into consideration the expected loan growth over
the rating horizon.  However, should this growth result in
deterioration in DCOM's capital or liquidity position that is out
of line with Fitch's expectations, negative ratings pressure could
develop.  Furthermore, negative ratings pressure could also develop
if loan growth results in a significant decrease in the relative
exposure to rent regulated properties.

DCOM's ratings are predicated on the company's adherence to its
core competency, which is multifamily lending in the New York City
metropolitan area.  Any significant changes in the mix of business,
either by product type or geography, would be carefully considered
by Fitch to determine any potential ratings impact.

RATING SENSITIVITIES - LONG- AND SHORT-TERM DEPOSIT RATINGS

The ratings of long- and short-term deposits issued by The Dime
Savings Bank of Williamsburgh are primarily sensitive to any change
in the company's IDR.  Should the long-term IDR be downgraded,
deposit ratings could be similarly impacted.

RATING SENSITIVITIES - SUPPORT RATING AND SUPPORT RATING FLOOR
The SR is potentially sensitive to any change in assumptions around
the propensity or ability of DCOM to provide timely support to the
bank.

RATING SENSITIVITIES -SUBORDINATED DEBT AND OTHER HYBRID
SECURITIES

The ratings of subordinated debt and other hybrid securities are
sensitive to any change in the company's VR.

RATING SENSITIVITIES - HOLDING COMPANY

Should DCOM begin to exhibit signs of weakness, demonstrate trouble
accessing the capital markets, or have inadequate cash flow
coverage to meet near-term obligations, there is the potential that
Fitch could notch the holding company IDR and VR from the ratings
of The Dime Savings Bank of Williamsburgh.

Fitch has affirmed these ratings with a Stable Outlook:

Dime Community Bancshares, Inc.
   -- Long-term IDR at 'BBB';
   -- Short-term IDR at 'F2';
   -- Viability Rating at 'bbb';
   -- Support Rating at '5';
   -- Support Rating Floor at 'NF'.

The Dime Savings Bank of Williamsburgh
   -- Long-term IDR at 'BBB';
   -- Short-term IDR at'F2';
   -- Viability Rating at 'bbb';
   -- Long-term Deposits at 'BBB+';
   -- Short-term Deposits at 'F2';
   -- Support Rating at '5';
   -- Support Rating Floor at 'NF'.

Dime Community Capital Trust I
   -- Trust Preferred at 'BB-'.

agreement that was signed on March 19, 2013, between Elbit and the
Trustees of six out of eight series of bonds, Elbit is prohibited,
inter alia, from paying off its debts to the financial creditors
-- and as a result a petition to liquidate Elbit was filed, and
Bank Hapoalim has declared its debts immediately payable,
threatening to realize pledges that were given to the Bank on
material assets of the Company -- and Elbit undertook not to sell
material assets of the Company and not to perform any transaction
that is not during its ordinary course of business without giving
an advance notice to the trustees.

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

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

                      About Elephant Talk

Lutz, Fla.-based Elephant Talk Communications, Inc. (OTC BB: ETAK)
-- http://www.elephanttalk.com/-- is an international provider of
business software and services to the telecommunications and
financial services industry.

Elephant Talk reported a net loss of $5 million on $31.01 million
of revenues for the year ended Dec. 31, 2015, compared to a net
loss of $21.86 million on $20.35 million of revenues for the year
ended Dec. 31, 2014.

As of Dec. 31, 2015, Elephant Talk had $25.4 million in total
assets, $17.3 million in total liabilities and $8.05 million in
total stockholders' equity.

Squar Milner, LLP (formerly Squar Milner, Peterson, Miranda &
Williamson, LLP), in Los Angeles, California, issued a "going
concern" qualification on the consolidated financial statements for
the year ended Dec. 31, 2015, citing that the Company has suffered
recurring losses from operations, has an accumulated deficit of
$256 million and has negative working capital.  This raises
substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a
going concern, the auditors said.


EMIGRANT BANCORP: Fitch Affirms Then Withdraws 'BB' IDR
-------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed and withdrawn the ratings of Emigrant
Bancorp, Inc. (EMIG), Emigrant Bank, Emigrant Mercantile Bank, and
trust preferred securities issued by EMIG's subsidiaries.  The
Rating Outlook remains Stable.  Fitch has chosen to withdraw the
ratings for commercial reasons.

Fitch reviewed EMIG as part of its U.S. Niche Real Estate Bank Peer
Review, which also includes Astoria Financial Corporation, Inc.,
Dime Community Bancshares, Inc. and New York Community Bancorp,
Inc.

The U.S. Niche Real Estate Banks are characterized by their narrow
business models relative to other Fitch-rated banks, limited
deposit franchises and geographic concentrations.  Fitch views
these limitations as ratings constraints across the peer group. The
group is composed of banks with total assets ranging from
approximately $5 billion to approximately $50 billion that lend
primarily in the New York City metropolitan residential real estate
market.

KEY RATING DRIVERS - IDRs, VRs and SENIOR DEBT

The affirmation of the ratings including the long-term Issuer
Default Ratings (IDRs) at 'BB' and Viability ratings (VRs) at 'bb'
and Stable Outlook reflects EMIG's solid capital levels, continuing
reductions in non-performing assets (NPAs), and relatively stable
core earnings.  EMIG's ratings remain constrained by several key
factors including its limited franchise and business position
relative to peers, reliance on net interest income, and
historically elevated net charge-offs through the cycle.  Fitch
also believes that EMIG's risk appetite is relatively high compared
to those of peers, driven by EMIG's price sensitive deposit base
and exposure to niche business lines with higher industry-wide loss
content such as cash flow loans to lower middle-market private
equity sponsored companies, fine art lending, sports lending, and
syndicated loans.

Despite some modest reductions in 2015 due to risk-weighted asset
growth, EMIG's capital ratios continue to be strong and ahead of
peers.  Emigrant Bank's Core Tier 1 Capital and Fitch Core Capital
to Risk Weighted Assets ratios were 20.4% and 21.6%, respectively,
as of Dec. 31, 2015, compared to the peer averages of 13.8% and
13.3%.  EMIG has not paid material dividends over the past two
years and continues to build capital through retained earnings, a
key benefit afforded by its private ownership.  The ratings and
Stable Outlook assume the company will maintain strong capital
ratios due to EMIG's relatively high risk loan portfolio.

EMIG's relatively stable, ongoing profitability continues to be a
positive for the rating.  EMIG has been profitable in each year
since 2010 and has generated a solid amount of capital over this
period.  In 2015, the company had sizable gains from the sale of
private equity investments.  Stripping out these gains and holding
compensation flat from 2014 due to one-off bonus payments in 2015,
Fitch's calculated core return on average assets is approximately
50-60bps.  Returns should be relatively stable near this level in
the near term as a result of EMIG's limited fee revenue generating
franchise and high cost base.  Fitch views credit deterioration in
the C&I loan portfolio or rising interest rates that pressure
deposit costs as the main potential risks to EMIG's earnings
profile.

EMIG's sale of its brick and mortar branches in 2013 has limited
the company to online savings platforms as its primary source of
deposit gathering.  These online platforms are typically more price
sensitive in a rising rate environment, which could negatively
impact earnings, though these platforms to date have provided EMIG
with a good source of funding since being established in 2005.

The sale of EMIG's retail branches has also limited the company's
product set to mainly commercial products.  Many of these products
are originated through brokers or syndications and limit EMIG's
ability to cross-sell fee-based services.  To offset this, EMIG has
aspired to build its wealth management and private banking
franchise into a more meaningful fee contributor, though progress
on this front has been limited.

Although net charge-offs for EMIG's higher risk and niche business
lines have been low in recent years, NPAs remain elevated due to
slow resolution of crisis-era mortgage loans.  The significant
growth seen in the commercial portfolio is also a concern, as this
portfolio and commercial real estate generated significant losses
in the previous credit cycle and could be a source of strain in a
weaker economic environment.  This view is in line with Fitch's
industry-wide concerns about above-trend commercial loan growth.

KEY RATING DRIVERS - SUBORDINATED DEBT AND OTHER HYBRID SECURITIES

EMIG's trust preferred securities are rated 'B+', two notches below
EMIG's 'bb' VR.  The notch differential reflects loss severity and
an assessment of incremental non-performance risk.

KEY RATING DRIVERS - LONG- AND SHORT-TERM DEPOSITS

Emigrant Bank's long- and short-term deposit ratings, including the
long-term deposit rating of 'BB+', reflect Fitch's view of how
these deposits would be treated in liquidation by the FDIC.

KEY RATING DRIVERS - HOLDING COMPANY

EMIG's IDRs and VRs are equalized with those of its bank,
reflecting its role as the bank holding company, which is mandated
in the U.S. to act as a source of strength for its bank
subsidiaries.

KEY RATING DRIVERS - SUPPORT RATINGS AND SUPPORT RATING FLOORS

EMIG, Emigrant Bank, and Emigrant Mercantile Bank have Support
Ratings of '5' and Support Rating Floors of 'NF'.  In Fitch's view,
EMIG is not systemically important and, therefore, considers the
probability of support to be unlikely.  EMIG's IDR and VR do not
incorporate any support.

Rating sensitivities are no longer relevant given today's rating
withdrawal.

Corp is a borrower traded in the secondary market at 94.30
cents-on-the-dollar during the week ended Friday, April 1, 2016,
according to data compiled by LSTA/Thomson Reuters MTM Pricing.

May 25, 2022 and carries Moody's B2 rating and Standard & Poor's B

F-SQUARED INVESTMENT: Only Lead Case Remains Open
-------------------------------------------------
Judge Laurie Selber Silverstein in March 2016 entered an order
closing the Chapter 11 cases of the affiliates of F-Squared
Investment Management, LLC.  According to the order, Case No.
15-11469, F-Squared Investment Management will remain open pending
further Court order and will be the Chapter 11 case through which
the Debtors' consolidated estate will be administered.

These cases are closed:

     Case Name                          Case Number
     ---------                          -----------
F-Squared Investments, Inc.              15-11470
F-Squared Retirement Solutions, LLC      15-11471

Active Index Solutions, LLC              15-11478

Judge Laurie Selber Silverstein of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the District of Delaware on Jan. 14, 2016, signed an order
confirming the joint Chapter 11 plan of liquidation proposed by
F-Squared Investment Management, LLC, et al., and the Official
Committee of Unsecured Creditors.

The Plan had an Effective Date of Jan. 22, 2016.  Claims arising
from the rejection of an executory contract under the Plan were due
Feb. 24, 2016.  The administrative bar date was Feb. 24.  The
professional claims bar date was March 7.

                        The Chapter 11 Plan

The Liquidation Plan provides that holders of Class 3 - General
Unsecured Claims are estimated to recover 6.0% to 11.9% of the
total allowed claim amount.

As of the General Bar Date, the Debtors received or scheduled the
following Claims:

                            No. of
   Claim Priority           Claims   Amount of Claims
   --------------           ------   ----------------
   Secured Claims                9           $112,512
   Admin. Claims                 2           $367,540
   Priority Non-Tax Claims      43           $588,121
   Priority Tax Claims           8            $24,811
   Unsecured Claims            375     $2,654,222,161

Of the General Unsecured Claims mount, approximately $512 million
constitutes Intercompany Claims (which are being eliminated by
virtue of the substantive consolidation proposed under the Plan),
significant portions thereof are currently and will in the future
be subject to objection on various substantive and non-substantive
grounds and $2.0 billion constitutes four proofs of Claim in the
amount of $500 million each filed by the Youngers Plaintiffs in
connection with the Youngers Litigation.  The Debtors have
already objected to one of the Youngers Plaintiffs' proofs of
Claim as being duplicative and have filed an objection to the
remaining three proofs of Claim.

FORESIGHT ENERGY: Forbearance Agreements Extended Until April 12
----------------------------------------------------------------

together with Foresight Energy LP and certain other subsidiaries of
Foresight Energy LP again extended the term of the existing
forbearance agreement that was entered into on Dec. 18, 2015, with
certain holders of the Issuers' 7.875% Senior Notes due 2021.  As a
result of the extension, the forbearance period runs through April
12, 2016, unless further extended by the Consenting Noteholders in
their sole discretion or unless earlier terminated in accordance

Foresight Receivables LLC, together with the Partnership, extended
the term of the forbearance agreement that was entered into on Jan.
27, 2016, with certain lenders under Foresight Receivables'
receivables financing agreement.  As a result of the extension, the
forbearance period runs through April 12, 2016, unless further
extended by the Consenting Lenders in their sole discretion or
unless earlier terminated in accordance with its terms.  

The extensions are intended to provide additional opportunity to
engage in discussions and negotiations with the holders of the
Notes and the Company's secured lenders.

                    About Foresight Energy

Foresight Energy mines and markets coal from reserves and
operations located exclusively in the Illinois Basin.  
As of Dec. 31, 2015, the Company has invested over $2.3 billion to
construct state-of-the-art, low-cost and highly productive mining
operations and related transportation infrastructure.  The Company
controls over 3 billion tons of proven and probable coal in the
state of Illinois, which, in addition to making the Company one of
the largest reserve holders in the United States, provides organic
growth opportunities.  The Company's reserves consist principally
of three large contiguous blocks of uniform, thick, high heat
content (high Btu) thermal coal which is ideal for highly
productive longwall operations.  Thermal coal is used by power
plants and industrial steam boilers to produce electricity or
process steam.

Foresight Energy reported a net loss attributable to limited
partner units of $39.47 million on $984.85 million of total
revenues for the year ended Dec. 31, 2015, compared to net income
attributable to limited partner units of $70.19 million on $1.10
billion of total revenues for the year ended Dec. 31, 2014.

As of Dec. 31, 2015, Foresight had $1.83 billion in total assets,
$1.81 billion in total liabilities and $18.88 million in total
partners' capital.

Ernst & Young LLP, in St. Louis, Missouri, issued a "going
concern" qualification on the consolidated financial statements for
the year ended Dec. 31, 2015, noting that the Partnership is in
default of certain provisions of its long-term debt and capital
lease obligations, resulting in a working capital deficit as of
Dec. 31, 2015.  These conditions raise substantial doubt about the
Partnership's ability to continue as a going concern.

                          *     *     *

The Troubled Company Reporter on March 22, 2016, reported that
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it lowered its corporate

'CCC-'.

As reported by the TCR on March 29, 2016, Moody's Investors Service
downgraded all ratings of Foresight Energy, LLC including the
corporate family rating to Caa3 from Caa1.


FOREST PARK REALTY: Objects to Sabra's Adequate Protection Bid
--------------------------------------------------------------
Forest Park Realty Partners III, LP, and BT Forest Park Realty
Partners, LP, object to Sabra Texas Holdings, L.P.'s motion asking
the U.S. Bankruptcy Court to lift the automatic stay on the grounds
that it is not adequately protected and there is no equity in the
Debtors' Property.

The Debtors argue that contrary to Sabra's allegations, there is an
equity cushion of approximately $6,000,000, which more than
adequately protects Sabra specifically since the Property subject
to Sabra’s lien is worth approximately $121,000,000, while Sabra
is asserting a claim against the Debtors in the amount of
$115,283,646.

Furthermore, the Debtors assert that the Court has awarded Sabra an
adequate-protection replacement lien on all postpetition income
pursuant to the Agreed Final Order Authorizing the Debtors to use
Cash Collateral.  In any event, to the extent the Court disagrees
and believes Sabra is entitled to additional adequate protection,
the Debtors are willing to discuss extending additional adequate
protection.

In addition, the Debtors tell the Court that they continue to
operate the Property as they are working diligently during these
Bankruptcy Cases to maintain all insurance, licensing, and other
prerequisites to operations resuming at Forest Park Dallas while it
is being marketed.  Since there is significant equity in the
Property, it is unquestionably necessary to an effective
reorganization, while the Debtors are exploring every option
available to them to maximize the value of the Property for all
their creditors and their equity holders.

The Court has set Sabra’s Motion for a final hearing on May 4,
2016.

FORTESCUE METALS: Bank Debt Trades at 16% Off
---------------------------------------------
Participations in a syndicated loan under which Fortescue Metals
Group Ltd is a borrower traded in the secondary market at 84.29
cents-on-the-dollar during the week ended Friday, April 1, 2016,
according to data compiled by LSTA/Thomson Reuters MTM Pricing.
This represents a decrease of 1.12 percentage points from the
previous week.  Fortescue Metals Group Ltd pays 275 basis points
above LIBOR to borrow under the $4.95 billion facility. The bank
loan matures on June 13, 2019 and carries Moody's Ba2 rating and
Standard & Poor's BB+ rating.  The loan is one of the biggest
gainers and losers among 247 widely quoted syndicated loans with
five or more bids in secondary trading for the week ended April 1.


FOUNTAINS OF BOYNTON: U.S. Trustee Unable to Appoint Committee
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Office of the U.S. Trustee disclosed in a court filing that no
official committee of unsecured creditors has been appointed in the
Chapter 11 case of Fountains of Boynton Associates, Ltd.

Fountains of Boynton Associates, Ltd. based in Boynton Beach, Fla.,
sought Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection (Bankr. S.D. Fla. Case No.
16-11690) on February 5, 2016.  The Debtor considers itself a
"single asset real estate".  The Hon. Erik P. Kimball oversees the
case.  Bradley S. Shraiberg, Esq., at Shraiberg, Ferrara, & Landau,
serves as the Debtor's counsel.  In its petition, the Debtor
estimated $50 million to $100 million in both assets and debts.
The petition was signed by John B. Kennelly, manager.


FRED FULLER: Court Rejects Disclosure Statement
-----------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of New Hampshire at the
end of February entered an order denying approval of the disclosure
statement explaining Fred Fuller Oil & Propane Co., Inc.'s Amended
Chapter 11 Plan filed Jan. 27, 2016.

By order dated March 10, 2015, the Debtor was directed to file its
Plan and Disclosure Statement by June 22, 2015, although these were
intended to be preliminary in nature.  By order dated Sept. 25,
2015, and following the passage of the claims' bar date, the Debtor
was directed to file and serve a Disclosure Statement and Plan on
or before Nov. 5, 2015.  The Disclosure Statement was scheduled for
hearing on Dec. 22, 2015.

After objections to the Disclosure Statement were filed by the
State of New Hampshire, the U.S. Trustee, Sharon Fuller and the
Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors, the Debtor agreed to
amend its Disclosure, and the Court directed an Amended Disclosure
Statement to be filed by Jan. 11, 2016.  At the Debtor's request
the Court extended the deadline for filing the Amended Disclosure
Statement to Jan. 27.

The Debtor's Disclosure Statement as filed on Jan. 27, 2016,
reported these potential claims of the estate against Mr. Fuller
and related parties:

                           Potential Claims
                           ----------------
        Fred Fuller           $2,275,640
        Sharon Fuller         $1,555,833
        Dawn Coppola          $1,223,228
        William Fuller          $529,133
        Scott Beltran           $460,000
        Laurie Reed             $221,094
        Alison Carter           $213,000
        Becky Beltran           $207,900
        William Fuller          $200,000
        Rebecca Fuller          $160,193

The Jan. 27, 2016 Disclosure Statement was met with several
objections, including objections filed by the U.S. Trustee, Fred
Fuller, Sharon Fuller, Dawn Coppola, and William Fuller.

On Feb. 17, 2016, a week before the hearing on the adequacy of the
Debtor's Disclosure Statement, the Debtor's president and sole
shareholder, Mr. Fred Fuller, filed a $6.824 million administrative
claim against the estate on behalf of himself and related parties,
purportedly for the value of assets he and related parties
contributed to enable the sale of the Debtor's assets to Rymes to
close in November of 2014.

On Feb. 24, 2016, given the number of objections raised, and the
recently filed $6.824 million administrative claim, the Court
denied approval of the Debtor's Disclosure Statement.

According to the U.S. Trustee, until there is resolution of the
Fuller $6.824 million administrative claim, the Plan process is
hopelessly stalled.  More problematic, the U.S. Trustee relates, is
that Mr. Fuller, acting as chairman of the Debtor's Board,
purportedly directs the action be taken by the Debtor's chief
restructuring officer, Mr. Jeffrey Varsalone.

                        Pot-Waterfall Plan

The Debtor on Jan. 27, 2016, filed an Amended Plan, which is a
Pot-Waterfall Plan.  According to the Disclosure Statement, the
Amended Plan provides that the Trustee will liquidate all of the
property of the estate on the Effective Date for the benefit of
Allowed Creditors.  The cash will be deposited into a "Pot" and
then disburse the cash to creditors holding Allowed Claims in a
Class based on their Shares on a Class-by-Class basis in accordance
with the seniority of each Class, which creates the "Waterfall".
Administrative claimants will receive full payment.  Holders of
consumer deposit claims are slated to have a 60% to 100% recovery.
Holders of general unsecured creditors will recover 1% in a worst
case scenario and 100% in a best case scenario.  Holders of equity
interests won't receive anything.

Various parties, including the U.S. Trustee, raised objections.

"The Debtor sold substantially all of its assets in late November,
2014 to Rymes Heating Oil, on extraordinarily short notice.  The
U.S. Trustee as well as other parties raised objections to the
Debtor's first Disclosure Statement and Plan. The current
Disclosure Statement has now raised more objections.  The Debtor is
now poised to litigate with Rymes Heating Oil over who is now
responsible for the repayment of certain claims.  The Debtor's
principal, Mr. Frederick Fuller, admittedly a prospective Defendant
in a significant avoidance action, has just filed a $6.824 million
administrative claim that appears to prevent a consensual Plan from
being achieved," the U.S. Trustee pointed out.

In his objection, William L. Fuller, a former employee asserting a
$2.17 million unsecured claim against the Debtor, says that the
allegation in the Disclosure Statement that he owes $200,000 on
account of no interest loans is unsubstantiated and cannot be
supported.

                      About Fred Fuller Oil

Hudson, New Hampshire-based Fred Fuller Oil & Propane Co., Inc.,
was the largest heating oil company in the state, serving about
30,000 New Hampshire customers.  

It sought Chapter 11 protection (Bankr. D. N.H. Case No. 14-12188)
in Manchester, New Hampshire, on Nov. 10, 2014.  Fredrick J.
Fuller, the president, signed the bankruptcy petition.

The Debtor estimated $10 million to $50 million in assets and debt.
The Nov. 10, 2014 court filing shows that the Debtor has about
$13.5 million in debt.

William S. Gannon, Esq., at William S. Gannon PLLC, in Manchester,
serves as counsel to the Debtor.

On Feb. 12, 2015, the Office of the U.S. Trustee appointed a
three-member Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors.  The
Committee selected Brinkman Portillo Ronk, APC, as its counsel with
Deming Law Office acting "of counsel."

                           *     *     *

The Court on Nov. 26, 2014, entered an order authorizing the Debtor
to sell substantially all assets to Rymes Heating Oil, Inc. The
Order called for Rymes to assume the liability and responsibility
for performing the Debtor's liabilities under the "Pre-Buy/Budget
Contracts," and to deliver fuel to their homes without further
cost.  Under the purchase and sales agreement as approved by the
Court, Rymes assumed the liabilities for employee vacation and sick
pay; delivered a promissory note for $3.645 million to Sprague; and
delivered a promissory note to the estate in the amount of
$275,000.  Rymes also agreed to pay Raymond Green up to $2.5
million.  Also sold through the sale process were assets belonging
to Mr. Frederick Fuller, or non-debtor entities he controlled.
Disputes over what was intended to be Rymes' or the Debtor's
responsibility under the sale continue to remain, and the estate is
poised to bring litigation against Rymes in the very near future.


FRED FULLER: U.S. Trustee Wants Case Converted to Chapter 7
-----------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Trustee is asking the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of New Hampshire to enter an order converting Fred Fuller
Oil & Propane Co., Inc.'s bankruptcy case to a Chapter 7
liquidation, or, in the alternative, an order authorizing the
appointment of a chapter 11 trustee.

The Debtor on Jan. 27, 2016, filed an Amended Plan and Disclosure
Statement.  On Feb. 17, a week before the hearing on the adequacy
of the Debtor's Disclosure Statement, the Debtor's president and
sole shareholder, Mr. Fred Fuller, filed a $6.824 million
administrative claim against the estate on behalf of himself and
related parties, purportedly for the value of assets he and related
parties contributed to enable the sale of the Debtor's assets to
Rymes to close in November of 2014.  On Feb. 24, given the number
of objections raised, and the recently filed $6.824 million
administrative claim, the Court denied approval of the Debtor's
Disclosure Statement.

The U.S. Trustee notes that while Mr. Fuller remains the president
and sole shareholder of the Debtor, the day-to-day management of
the company has been in the hands of Mr. Jeffrey Varsalone, chief
restructuring officer for the Debtor since the commencement of the
case.  Mr. Varsalone acts at the direction of the Debtor's Board,
which consists of Mr. Fuller.

The U.S. Trustee argues there is cause to convert the case under 11
U.S.C. Sec. 1112(b)(4)(A) because the Fuller administrative claim
-- if allowed for even a fraction of the amount sought -- would
render the Debtor's estate administratively insolvent and unable to
meet the requirements for confirmation under 11 U.S.C. Sec. 1129.

In addition, according to the U.S. Trustee, the Court cannot and
should not permit Mr. Fuller to prosecute his administrative claim
(or defend against Chapter 5 actions eventually brought against
him) while simultaneously directing the administration of this
estate through the company's chief restructuring officer, Jeffrey
Varsalone.  

The U.S. Trustee alleges that the chief restructuring officer, who
reports to the Debtor's board (Mr. Fuller), is now in an impossible
situation and cannot litigate with Mr. Fuller over his
administrative claim while simultaneously taking direction from him
as chairman of the Board.  Therefore, a disinterested person needs
to be appointed to represent the interests of the estate, the U.S.
Trustee tells the Court.

FREDDIE MAC: Fed. Cir. Requests More Briefing in Piszel v. U.S.
---------------------------------------------------------------
The United States government has no liability when it directs a
company to fire an employee and refuse to pay contractual severance
benefits.  That's what government lawyers told Judges Dyk, Schall
and Hughes in Piszel v. U.S., No. 15-5100 (Fed. Cir.), last week.


The short story is that Freddie Mac hired Anthony S. Piszel as its
CFO in 2006, and entered into a written employment agreement with
him.  That agreement said that if his employment were terminated
without cause Freddie would make a lump-sum severance payment.  Two
weeks after placing Freddie into conservatorship in Sept. 2008, the
Federal Housing Finance Agency directed Freddie's CEO to terminate
Mr. Piszel's employment without cause and make no severance payment
to Mr. Piszel.  Freddie did as it was instructed.  

In 2014, Mr. Piszel sued the government.  The complaint initiating
Piszel v. U.S., Case No. 14-cv-00691 (Ct. Fed. Cl.), argues that
FHFA's actions constitute a taking of Mr. Piszel's private property
rights without just compensation in violation of the Fifth
Amendment.  The government says it took nothing from Mr. Piszel, he
should have filed a breach of contract suit against Freddie, and,
moreover, because he worked for a highly regulated business he
should have known the government could change the terms of his
employment at any time.

Suing Freddie, of course, would have been an exercise in futility
for Mr. Piszel and his lawyers.  As it does in every lawsuit
brought against Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, FHFA steps in as
conservator and substitutes itself for the GSE.  Then, pointing to
section 4617(f) of HERA, asserts that it is fully insulated from
all litigation.  So, Mr. Piszel and his lawyers turned to the Court
of Federal Claims.  In a Memorandum Opinion and Order dated June
12, 2015, the Honorable Lydia Kay Griggsby bought the argument that
the government was free to change its mind and dismissed Mr.
Piszel's suit.  Mr. Piszel appealed.  

At last week's hearing -- a recording of which is available at
http://goo.gl/gcBBWRfrom the Federal Circuit's Web site -- the
three-judge panel struggled to understand how a takings claim
arises if Mr. Piszel retained his breach of contract claim against
Freddie.  Judge Dyk tried to analogize the conservator's
repudiation of Mr. Piszel's employment contract to a trustee's
rejection of a contract in bankruptcy, which would give rise to a
claim for damages, but since FHFA has no process for asserting,
disputing, resolving and paying claims, the analogy doesn't work so
well.  Bankruptcy trustees and chapter 11 debtors-in-possession
are, of course, subject to bankruptcy court oversight.  FHFA takes
the position all of its actions are exempt from judicial review.  

The three-judge panel questioned how similar Mr. Piszel's case may
be to A&D Auto Sales, Inc., et al. v. U.S., No. 13-5019 (Fed. Cir.)
-- slip op. at http://goo.gl/yFYnH8(and written by Judge Dyk) --
where the government directed General Motors and Chrysler to reject
a number of automobile dealer franchise contracts in exchange for
financial support for the automakers' restructurings.  

Left with unanswered questions, Judges Dyk, Schall and Hughes want
Mr. Piszel and the government to submit supplemental briefs by Apr.
29, 2016, addressing these three questions:

     (A) Does the fact that the golden parachute provision, 12
U.S.C. sec. 4518(e), did not eliminate breach of contract claims
preclude a takings action against the government?

     (B) Would recovery for such a breach of contract claim be
limited by the doctrine of impossibility or the sovereign acts
doctrine and would the limitations on damages for breach of
contract claims in HERA, 12 U.S.C. sec. 4617(d)(3)(A), preclude or
limit recovery of breach of contract damages?  Compare Office &
Prof'l Employees Int'l Union, Local 2 v. FDIC, 27 F.3d 598 (D.C.
Cir. 1994), with Howell v. FDIC, 986 F.2d 569 (1st Cir. 1993).

     (C) If these doctrines or statutory provisions would limit
recovery, what impact would that have on the existence of a takings
claim?

Mr. Piszel is represented by:

          Michael V. Rella, Esq.
          MURPHY & McMONIGLE, P.C.

          E-mail: mrella@mmlawus.com

and the government is represented by David A. Harrington, Esq., at
the U.S. Department of Justice.  

The Federal Circuit received an Amicus Brief from Pershing Square
Capital Management, L.P., and other GSE shareholders in support of
neither party.  Pershing Square urges the Federal Circuit to avoid
relying on Judge Lamberth's decision in Perry v. Lew (on appeal to
the D.C. Circuit and set for oral argument on Fri., Apr. 15) that
dismissed shareholder complaints filed in the District Court
challenging the Net Worth Sweep.  Judge Lamberth's "extraordinary
conclusion that the Government has blanket authority to confiscate
the assets of regulated private corporations and their shareholders
in federal conservatorship . . . cannot stand," Pershing Square
says.  

No federal conservatorship regime and nothing in the history of
federal conservatorships suggests a grant to the U.S. government of
an option it can exercise whenever it wishes to nullify the
property interests of stakeholders like Mr. Piszel and Fannie and
Freddie preferred and common shareholders and seize all enterprise
value for itself.  


FRIENDFINDER NETWORKS: SSG Helps Sell Penthouse to Reduce Leverage
------------------------------------------------------------------
SSG Capital Advisors, LLC, acted as the investment banker to
Penthouse (the "Company") in the sale of all of its outstanding
stock to Penthouse Global Media, Inc.  The transaction closed in
February 2016.

Penthouse is an iconic name in adult entertainment.   With
worldwide recognition and a long history, the Company successfully
leveraged the brand from its roots as a published magazine into a
diversified media business, including popular online sites;
broadcast content available throughout North America, Europe, Latin
America, Africa, and the Caribbean; and licensing arrangements
covering a broad array of products and services.

FriendFinder Networks, Inc., which owned Penthouse, sought to sell
certain ancillary service lines in order to de-lever the business.
The Company endured erratic operating performance due to the
changing dynamics of the adult entertainment industry, specifically
the proliferation of free content and the decline in popularity of
traditional print publications.

SSG was retained by the Company to run a sale process.  In light of
the international scope of the adult entertainment industry and the
Company's worldwide operations, SSG's marketing process included
potential buyers from around the globe.  The Company was ultimately
acquired by Penthouse Global Media, Inc., an entity created by
Kelly Holland, the current Managing Director of Penthouse.

include:

     * Sean P. Coyle of Akerman, LLP, counsel to
Penthouse/FriendFinder Networks, Inc.;

     * Barry L. Dastin and Russ A. Cashdan of Hogan Lovells,

No. 13-12404) on Sept. 17, 2013, estimating assets of $465.3
million and debt totaling $662 million.  The Debtors prosecuted
their Modified Second Amended Joint Plan of Reorganization to
confirmation on Dec. 17, 2013, and emerged from chapter 11 later
that month.  Under the Plan, annual interest expense was cut by
over $50 million, approximately $300 million of secured debt was
eliminated, and and return control of the Company to founder Andrew
Conru.  SSG Capital Advisors served as the Debtors' financial
advisor in that chapter 11 restructuring.

GRIZZLY CATTLE: Debtor Asks Bankr. Court to Appoint an Examiner
---------------------------------------------------------------
To resolve disputes with insiders, Grizzly Cattle, LLC, asks the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Colorago to appointing an
Examiner in its chapter 11 restructuring proceeding.  

The Debtor's owners and members are Sopris, LLC and Kloiber Real
Estate Holdings, LLC. The Debtor’s primary creditor is Rabo
AgriFinance, Inc., which is owed in excess of $10 million.  

In 2013, Kloiber, derivatively on behalf of the Debtor, filed an
action, before the Judicial
Arbiter Group, in Case No. 2013-1415A, asserting various tort
claims against Sopris and two related parties, Kirk A. Shiner and
Grizzly Land, LLC.  On Feb. 12, 2016, the Arbiter, William G.
Meyer, entered an Interim Arbitration Award in favor of Kloiber and
the Debtor and against Sopris, Mr. Shiner, and Grizzly Land.  The
Arbiter found that Sopris and Mr. Shiner violated their fiduciary
duties to and committed fraud against Kloiber and the Debtor.  The
Interim Award acknowledges that the claims asserted in the
Arbitration constitute derivative claims.  The Interim Award grants
damages in the approximate principal amount of $12 million.
Sopris, Mr. Shiner, and Grizzly Land continue to oppose the award
in the Arbitration.

Following the entry of the Interim Award, the Arbiter determined to
proceed with a
liquidation of the Debtor.  The Debtor filed its bankruptcy case to
halt any liquidation in the context of the Arbitration and to
effect an appropriate liquidation through the Bankruptcy Code for
the benefit of all of its creditors and equity holders.

Given that the Debtor's owners, Sopris and Kloiber, are involved in
vigorously contested litigation against each other in the
Arbitration, the Debtor anticipates that questions and objections
will arise in regard to the Debtor's ability to pursue and assert
fairly the claims set forth in the Arbitration.  Such questions
will impede the Debtor's effort to file promptly a plan to satisfy
its creditors through a liquidation of its assets, including any
claims against Sopris, Mr. Shiner, and Grizzly Land.  Further, the
Debtor may hold other claims against Sopris and Kloiber, and their
respective parties, who, in turn, may assert other counter claims
against the Debtor.  

The Debtor tells the COurt that it has and will continue to perform
its duties as a fiduciary under 11 U.S.C. sec. 1107.  In order to
eliminate objections to the Debtor's fitness to conduct itself
properly as a debtor in possession and to expedite a prompt and
fair resolution of these proceedings, the Debtor seeks the
appointment of an examiner with the power to investigate, mediate,
and, if needed, prosecute the claims that form the subject matter
of the Arbitration, on behalf and for the benefit of the Debtor's
bankruptcy estate.

Given the dispute in the Arbitration between Kloiber and Sopris,
and their respective related parties, and given the Debtor's desire
to file a plan as soon as practicable, the Debtor says it is in the
interests of creditors and the equity holders for the Court to
appoint an examiner pursuant to 11 U.S.C. Sec. 1104.  

In addition to the typical duties of investigation and reporting
set forth in 11 U.S.C. Sec.
1106, the Debtor requests that the Court order the examiner to:

     (A) Prosecute or otherwise resolve the derivative claims set
forth in the Arbitration on
behalf of the Debtor’s estate; and

     (B) Investigate and, if appropriate, prosecute or otherwise
resolve claim objections in
regard to all insiders, including any proofs of claim filed by
Kloiber, Sopris, Mr. Shiner,
Grizzly Land, or any of their respective related entities or
persons.

Grizzly Cattle, LLC, based in Johnstown, Colo., sought chapter 11
protections (Bankr. D. Colo. Case No. 16-12675) on Mar. 24, 2016,
and is represented by Robert Padjen, Esq., at Laufer and Padjan
LLC.  At the time of the filing, the Debtor estimated assets and
debts of less than $10 million.  The Debtor's chapter 11 petition
was signed by Kirk A. Shiner, managing member.


HAMPSHIRE GROUP: Forbearance Agreements Extended Until April 18
---------------------------------------------------------------
As previously reported:

  * on Nov. 30, 2015, Hampshire Group, Limited and certain of its
    subsidiaries entered into a Forbearance Agreement and Fifth
    Amendment to Credit Agreement with Salus CLO 2012-1, Ltd. and
    Salus Capital Partners, LLC, as lenders, pursuant to which,
    among other things, (i) the maturity date of the loans under
    the credit facility was changed to Feb. 29, 2016, and (ii) the
    Lenders agreed to forbear from exercising their rights with
    respect to certain specified defaults under the credit
    facility.

  * The Company has received a term sheet for a replacement credit

    facility from a new lender and is negotiating the definitive
    agreements with the new lender.  On March 8, 2016, the
    Borrowers and the existing Lenders entered into an agreement
    dated as of March 7, 2016, to temporarily extend the
    forbearance date and maturity date to April 4, 2016, subject
    to an earlier date in the discretion of the Lenders in the
    event that the Lenders receive notice that the credit facility

    with the new lender will not be completed as currently
    contemplated.

On April 7, 2016, the Borrowers and the existing Lenders entered
into an agreement dated as of April 4, 2016, to extend each of the
forbearance date and maturity date from April 4, 2016,
to April 18, 2016, subject to an earlier date in the discretion of
the Lenders in the event that the Lenders receive notice that the
credit facility with the new lender will not be completed as
currently contemplated.  The Company said there can be no assurance
that the new credit facility will be completed in a timely manner,
or at all, or that the existing Lenders will give further
extensions of the forbearance and maturity dates beyond April 18,
2016.

they will not renew the credit facility beyond that maturity date,
because they intend to exit this line of business. The Company is
in the process of attempting to obtain financing with a new lender.
These conditions, the auditors said, raise substantial doubt about
the Company's ability to continue as a going concern.


HAMPSHIRE GROUP: Needs More Time to File 2015 Annual Report
-----------------------------------------------------------
Hampshire Group, Limited, filed with the U.S. Securities and
Exchange
Commission a Notification of Late Filing on Form 12b-25 with
respect to its annual report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal year ended
Dec. 31, 2015.

As previously reported, Hampshire Group was unable to timely file
its annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended Dec. 31, 2014,
and the quarterly reports on Form 10-Q for the first three quarters
of 2015 within the prescribed time periods because Company
management was addressing problems caused by labor issues, related
slowdowns and bottlenecks at West Coast shipping ports and
liquidity constraints caused by lower than expected fourth quarter
2014 results and the West Coast shipping ports problems.

Further, in 2015, Company management addressed problems caused by
liquidity constraints that prompted it to realign its resources
with its operations, including the sale of Rio Garment S.A.,
amending its New York Office lease and terminating a licensing
agreement with Sole Asset Holdings, Inc.

The Company's Audit Committee also initiated an investigation in
February 2015, which concluded in July 2015.  As a result,
significant management time and resources were diverted from the
Company's normal process of reviewing and completing the Late
Reports as well as the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the
year ended Dec. 31, 2015.

The Company said until all of the Late Reports are completed and
filed, it won't be able to begin preparation of its 2015 Form 10-K.
The Company filed the last of the Late Reports (the Quarterly
Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended on September 26, 2015) on
March 24, 2016.  The Company intends to file the Form 10-K as soon
as reasonably practicable; however, at this time the Company
anticipates that it will not be able be able to do so within the
extension period of fifteen calendar days provided under Rule
12b-25 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended."

The Company currently estimates that it will report a net loss
between $3.0 million and $5.0 million for the year ended Dec. 31,
2015, compared to a net loss of $28.8 million for the year ended
Dec. 31, 2014.

"going concern" qualification on the consolidated financial

Company has suffered recurring losses and incurred negative cash
flows from continuing operations and its total liabilities exceed
its total assets at December 31, 2014.  In addition, the Company is
in default under its credit facility and has entered into a
forbearance agreement and amendment to the credit facility, which
among other items, changed the maturity date of the credit facility
to February 29, 2016.  The Company's lenders have indicated that
they will not renew the credit facility beyond that maturity date,
because they intend to exit this line of business. The Company is
in the process of attempting to obtain financing with a new lender.
These conditions, the auditors said, raise substantial doubt about
the Company's ability to continue as a going concern.

HCSB FINANCIAL: Labels 905,315 Shares as Series A Pref. Stock
-------------------------------------------------------------
HCSB Financial Corporation, on April 1, 2016, filed with the South
Carolina Secretary of State Articles of Amendment to the Company's
Articles of Incorporation to designate 905,315.57 shares of the
Company's authorized but unissued preferred stock as shares of the
Company's Series A preferred stock.  The Series A preferred stock
has the following terms, preferences, limitations and relative
rights:

   * Dividends: Holders of the Series A preferred stock will be
     entitled to receive dividends when, as, and if declared by
     the Company's board of directors, in the same per share
     amount as paid on the number of shares of common stock with
     respect to the number of shares of common stock into which
     the shares of Series A preferred stock would be converted in
     accordance with the Articles of Amendment, and no dividends
     would be payable on the common stock unless a dividend
     identical to that paid on the common stock is payable at the
     same time on the Series A preferred stock on an as-converted
     basis.

   * Conversion: Each share of Series A preferred stock will
     automatically convert into one hundred shares of non-voting
     common stock effective as of the close of business on the
     date that the Company obtains shareholder approval for and
     files an amendment to the Articles of Incorporation to
     authorize a class of non-voting common stock.  Unless the
     shares of Series A preferred stock have previously been
     converted into shares of non-voting common stock as described

     above, each share of Series A preferred stock will
     automatically convert into one hundred shares of voting
     common stock upon a "Permissible Transfer" of such shares of
     Series A preferred stock to a non-affiliate of such holder or

     may be converted into 100 shares of voting common stock at
     any time, provided that upon such conversion, the holder and
     its affiliates will not own more than 9.9% of the Company's
     voting securities.  A "Permissible Transfer" is a transfer by
     the holder of Series A preferred stock (i) to the Company;
    (ii) in a widely distributed public offering of voting common
     stock or Series A preferred stock; (iii) that is part of an
     offering that is not a widely distributed public offering of
     voting common stock or Series A preferred stock but is one in

     which no one transferee acquires the rights to receive 2% or
     more of any class of voting securities; (iv) that is part of
     a transfer of voting common stock or Series A preferred stock

     to an underwriter for the purpose of conducting a widely
     distributed public offering; (v) to a transferee that
     controls more than 50% of the voting securities of the
     Company without giving effect to such transfer; or (vi) that
     is part of a transaction approved by the Board of Governors
     of the Federal Reserve System.

   * Priority: The Series A preferred stock will rank, as to
     payments of dividends and distribution of assets upon
     dissolution, liquidation or winding up of the Company, pari
     passu with the common stock pro rata on an as-converted
     basis.

   * Voting: Holders of Series A preferred stock will have no
     voting rights except as may be required by law.  If the
     holders of Series A preferred stock are entitled by law to
     vote as a single class with the holders of outstanding shares

     of common stock, each share of Series A preferred stock shall

     be entitled to a number of votes equal to the number of
     shares of common stock into which such share is convertible.

   * Preemptive Rights: Holders of Series A preferred stock will
     have no preemptive rights, except for any such rights that
     may be granted by way of separate contract or agreement to
     one or more holders of Series A preferred stock.

   * Redemption: The Series A preferred stock will not be
     redeemable by either the Company or by the holder.

                         About HCSB Financial

Loris, South Carolina-based HCSB Financial Corporation was
incorporated on June 10, 1999, to become a holding company for
Horry County State Bank.  The Bank is a state chartered bank which
commenced operations on Jan. 4, 1988.  From its 13 branch
locations, the Bank offers a full range of deposit services,
including checking accounts, savings accounts, certificates of
deposit, money market accounts, and IRAs, as well as a broad range
of non-deposit investment services.  During the third quarter of
2011, the Bank closed its Covenant Towers branch located at Myrtle
Beach.  All deposits were transferred to the Bank's Myrtle Beach
branch and the Bank does not expect any disruption of service in
that market for its customers.

HCSB Financial reported a net loss available to common shareholders
of $1.75 million on $13.7 million of total interest income for the
year ended Dec. 31, 2015, compared to a net loss available to
common shareholders of $1.40 million on $16.09 million of total
interest income for the year ended Dec. 31, 2014.

As of Dec. 31, 2015, HCSB Financial had $362 million in total
assets, $374 million in total liabilities and a total shareholders'
deficit of $12.3 million.

Elliott Davis Decosimo, LLC, in Columbia, South Carolina, issued a
"going concern" qualification on the consolidated financial
statements for the year ended Dec. 31, 2015, citing that  the
Company has suffered recurring losses that have eroded regulatory
capital ratios and the Company's wholly owned subsidiary, Horry
County State Bank, is under a regulatory Consent Order with the
Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) that requires, among
other provisions, capital ratios to be maintained at certain
levels.  As of December 31, 2015, the Company's subsidiary is
considered significantly undercapitalized based on its regulatory
capital levels.  These considerations raise substantial doubt about
the Company's ability to continue as a going concern.  The Company
also has deferred interest payments on its junior subordinated
debentures for 20 consecutive quarters as of December 31, 2015.
Under the terms of the debentures, the Company may defer payments
for up to 20 consecutive quarters without creating a default.
Payment for the 20th quarterly interest deferral period was due in
March 2016.  The Company failed to pay the deferred and compounded
interest at the end of the deferral period, and the trustees of the
corresponding trusts, have the right, after any applicable grace
period, to exercise various remedies, including demanding immediate
payment in full of the entire outstanding principal amount of the
debentures.  The balance of the debentures and accrued interest as
of December 31, 2015 were $6,186,000 and $901,000, respectively.
These events also raise substantial doubt about the Company's
ability to continue as a going concern as of December 31, 2015.


HEALTH NET: A.M. Best Affirms bb ICR & bb Rating on $400MM Notes
----------------------------------------------------------------
A.M. Best has removed from under review with developing
implications and affirmed the financial strength rating of B++
(Good) and the issuer credit ratings (ICR) of "bbb" of Health Net
of California, Inc., Health Net Life Insurance Company, Health Net
Health Plan of Oregon, Inc. (Tigard, OR) and Health Net of Arizona,
Inc. (Tempe AZ). All companies are headquartered in Woodland Hills,
CA unless otherwise specified. A.M. Best also has removed from
under review with developing implications and affirmed the ICR of
"bb" and the issue rating of "bb" on the $400 million 6.375% senior
unsecured notes due 2017 of the parent company, Health Net, Inc.
(Health Net). The outlook assigned to each rating is stable.

The rating affirmations follow the March 24, 2016, completion of
Centene Corporation’s (Centene) [NYSE: CNC] acquisition of Health
Net. As a result of the acquisition, Health Net is a wholly owned
subsidiary of Centene, and is no longer a publicly traded company.
In addition, the combined company will be headquartered in St.
Louis, MO. The acquisition created a leading diversified
multinational health care organization with more than 10 million
members throughout the United States. The combined organization
will have a strong presence in the California Medicaid program and
will be one of the largest Medicaid managed organizations in the
country. This transaction provides growth opportunities in
government programs including TRICARE, the U.S. Department of
Veterans Affairs and in exchange products in multiple states.
Additionally, the new company has the potential for significant
cost synergies through integration of a range of specialty services
and leveraging capabilities in information technology systems and
process management. Centene and Health Net teams have been working
over the past eight months to develop an integration plan that
leverages the talents and expertise of both companies.

Health Net shareholders received 0.622 shares of Centene common
stock and $28.25 in cash for each share of Health Net common stock
held at closing, for a total transaction value of approximately
$6.0 billion, including the assumption of debt. The combined pro
forma financial leverage is expected to be approximately 45%, and
goodwill is anticipated to increase considerably.

Health Net's 2015 fiscal year end operating results improved with
increased revenue and earnings. In addition, the company reported
higher shareholder’s equity for the year. The growth trends have
been primarily supported by higher membership in Medicaid programs.
However, some of Health Net’s core subsidiaries have reported a
significant decline in earnings due to the costs of participating
in the exchange and other fees related to the Affordable Care Act.
In addition, during 2015, a number of capital infusions from the
holding company were made to several of its insurance subsidiaries
to maintain risk-adjusted capital levels. A.M. Best expects that
the parent company will continue to provide capital support when
needed. Going forward, the combined companies will face the
challenges of integration risk and business execution risk.

LTD is a borrower traded in the secondary market at 97.18
cents-on-the-dollar during the week ended Friday, April 1, 2016,

to borrow under the $1.951 billion facility. The bank loan matures
on Oct. 2, 2020 and carries Moody's Ba3 rating and Standard &

IHEARTCOMMUNICATIONS INC: Julia Donnelly Quits as Director
----------------------------------------------------------
Julia B. Donnelly resigned as a member of the Board of Directors of
iHeartCommunications, Inc., on April 7, 2016, according to a
regulatory filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Pursuant to the Company's Seventh Amended and Restated By-laws, as
amended, on April 7, 2016, the Board of Directors of the Company
appointed Laura A. Grattan as a member of the Company's Board of
Directors to fill the vacancy created by Ms. Donnelly's
resignation.

Ms. Grattan is a director at Thomas H. Lee Partners, L.P.  From
2003 until she joined THL in 2005, Ms. Grattan worked in the
Private Equity Group at Goldman, Sachs & Co.  Ms. Grattan is
currently a director of inVentiv Health, Inc. and West Corporation.
Ms. Grattan was also appointed as a member of the board of
managers of iHeartMedia Capital I, LLC, the Company's direct
parent, and the board of directors of iHeartMedia, Inc., the
Company's indirect parent, on April 7, 2016.  Her prior investment
experience at THL includes Aramark Corporation and Univision
Communications, Inc.  Ms. Grattan holds an A.B. in Economics from
Dartmouth College and an M.B.A. from Harvard Business School.

Ms. Grattan will not receive any compensation for her service on
the Company's Board of Directors.  She will receive the same form
of Indemnification Agreement as all other members of the Company's
Board of Directors.  At this time, the Board of Directors does not
intend to appoint Ms. Grattan as a member of any of the committees
of the Board of Directors.

Entities controlled by Bain Capital Investors, LLC and THL and
their respective affiliates collectively own all of the outstanding
shares of Class B common stock and Class C common stock of iHM.
These shares represent in the aggregate approximately 66% (whether
measured by voting power or economic interest) of the equity of
iHM.  In addition, seven of the Company's directors (including Ms.
Grattan) are affiliated with the Sponsors and all of the Company's
directors are members of the board of directors of iHM.

In connection with the 2008 merger pursuant to which iHM acquired
the Company, iHM and its subsidiaries entered into a number of
agreements with the Sponsors and certain of their affiliates,
including (1) a management agreement pursuant to which the Sponsors
provide management and financial advisory services to iHM and its
wholly owned subsidiaries until 2018, at a rate not greater than
$15.0 million per year, plus reimbursable expenses, (2) a
stockholders agreement relating to voting in elections to the board
of directors of iHM and the transfer of certain shares and (3) an
affiliate transactions agreement with respect to the entry into
certain transactions between iHM or its subsidiaries, on the one
hand, and the Sponsors or their respective affiliates, on the other
hand.  In addition, as a result of the worldwide reach and the
nature of the business of iHM and the breadth of investments by the
Sponsors, it is not unusual for iHM and its subsidiaries to engage
in ordinary course of business commercial transactions with
entities in which one or both of the Sponsors directly or
indirectly owns a greater than 10% equity interest.  A description
of these agreements and commercial transactions is contained in
iHM's Proxy Statement on Schedule 14A, filed with the Securities
and Exchange Commission on March 31, 2015.

                       Bankruptcy Warning

"The ability to refinance the debt will depend on the condition of
the capital markets and our financial condition at such time.   Any
refinancing of the debt could be at higher interest rates and
increase debt service obligations and may require us and our
subsidiaries to comply with more onerous covenants, which could
further restrict our business operations.  The terms of existing or
future debt instruments may restrict us from adopting some of these
alternatives.  These alternative measures may not be successful and
may not permit us or our subsidiaries to meet scheduled debt
service obligations.  If we or our subsidiaries cannot make
scheduled payments on indebtedness, we or our subsidiaries, as
applicable, will be in default under one or more of the debt
agreements and, as a result we could be forced into bankruptcy or
liquidation," the Company said in its annual report for the year
ended Dec. 31, 2015.

IMPLANT SCIENCES: Debt Maturities Extended Until June 2016
----------------------------------------------------------
Implant Sciences Corporation announced the extension of its secured
credit agreements with DMRJ Group, LLC and the group of investors
represented by BAM Administrative Services, LLC.

DMRJ and BAM have agreed to a time-limited extension of the
maturity of all Implant Sciences' indebtedness under those secured
credit agreements.  The company has agreed to amend the terms of
its Series H Convertible Preferred Stock, Series I Convertible
Preferred Stock and Series J Convertible Preferred Stock, so that
on any matter presented to the stockholders of the company, each
holder of outstanding shares of each of the series of preferred
stock will be entitled to cast the number of votes equal to the
number of whole shares of Common Stock into which the shares of the
preferred stock are convertible as of the record date for
determining stockholders entitled to vote on such matter.  

The amended terms also dictate that such shares of preferred stock
will, upon the sale of the company, be paid the amounts that they
would have been paid if converted to common stock, without such
shares being required to be converted.  The parties also agreed to
amend such series of preferred stock to remove the limitations on
the holders thereof being able to convert such preferred stock to
own more than 4.99% of the company's outstanding common stock.  The
company also agreed to revise the Series J Convertible Preferred
Stock so that its holders are paid preferred payable in kind
dividends of 15% per year.  The remaining terms and conditions
remain unchanged.

The maturity of the Company's indebtedness to a group of accredited
institutional investors and BAM Administrative Services LLC, as
administrative agent for the Investors, under a Note Purchase
Agreement dated March 19, 2014, as amended, was extended from March
30, 2016, to June 29, 2016; provided that in the event the Company
extends the maturity date on all obligations owed to DMRJ, to a
date past June 30, 2016, the maturity date of the Secured Term
Notes shall automatically extend to such business day as is
immediately prior to such extended maturity date of the DMRJ
obligations.



The maturity of all of the Company's indebtedness to DMRJ under (i)
a senior secured promissory note dated July 1, 2009 and (ii) a
credit agreement dated September 4, 2009, was extended from March
31, 2016, to June 30, 2016.

"We appreciate DMRJ and BAM's continued support, as the Board of
Directors guides Implant Sciences toward a final decision point in
the exploration of the strategic options for the business and to
establish an improved capital structure," stated Implant Sciences'
CEO, Dr. Bill McGann.  "Implant Sciences' success in the market has
continued, and we remain on target in regards to our projected FY16
revenues.  The updated agreement gives us the needed flexibility as
we continue to execute on our ultimate goal of profitability."

$96.46 million in total assets, and a total stockholders' deficit
of $81.1 million.

"Despite our current sales, expense and cash flow projections and
Marcum LLP, in Boston, Massachusetts, issued a "going concern"
qualification on the consolidated financial statements for the year
ended June 30, 2015, citing that the Company has had recurring net
losses and continues to experience negative cash flows from
operations.  As of Sept. 15, 2015, the Company's principal
obligation to its primary lenders was approximately $65,046,000 and
accrued interest of approximately $15,393,000.  The Company is
required to repay all borrowings and accrued interest to these
lenders on March 31, 2016.  These conditions raise substantial
doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern.


INFORMATICA CORP: Bank Debt Trades at 2% Off
--------------------------------------------
Participations in a syndicated loan under which Informatica Corp is
a borrower traded in the secondary market at 97.90
cents-on-the-dollar during the week ended Friday, April 1, 2016,
according to data compiled by LSTA/Thomson Reuters MTM Pricing.
This represents a decrease of 0.25 percentage points from the
previous week.  Informatica Corp pays 350 basis points above LIBOR
to borrow under the $ 1.875 billion facility. The bank loan matures
on June 1, 2022 and carries Moody's B2 rating and Standard & Poor's
B rating.  The loan is one of the biggest gainers and losers among
247 widely quoted syndicated loans with five or more bids in
secondary trading for the week ended April 1.



INTERNATIONAL WIRE: S&P Lowers CCR to 'B', Outlook Negative
-----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it lowered its corporate
credit ratings on Camden, N.Y.-based International Wire Group
Holdings Inc. and International Wire Group Inc. to 'B' from 'B+'.
The rating outlook is negative.

At the same time, S&P lowered the issue-level rating on
International Wire Group Inc.'s $250 million senior secured notes
due October 2017 to 'B' from 'B+'.  S&P's recovery rating on the
notes remains '4', indicating its expectation for average (30% to
50%; at the lower end of the range) recovery in the event of a
payment default.

"The negative outlook reflects our view that IWG's liquidity could
be revised to weak in the fourth quarter of 2016 if its senior
secured notes due 2017 are not refinanced before they become
current in October," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Michael
Maggi.  "At the same time, we expect continued weakness in metals
prices and a mixed demand picture across its key end markets will
weigh negatively on IWG's operating results over the next 12
months.  As such, we forecast adjusted debt to EBITDA will rise to
between 5x and 5.5x by year end 2016 before falling back below 5x
during 2017."

S&P could lower its ratings by one notch if it viewed IWG's
liquidity to be weak rather than less than adequate, which would
cap S&P's rating at 'B-'.  A weak liquidity assessment represents
an overarching credit risk, such as a material deficit over the
next 12 months.  S&P could downgrade IWG by more than one notch,
however, if S&P viewed its financial commitments to be
unsustainable in the long-term or it is likely the issuer will
default.

Until IWG refinances its upcoming debt maturities, it is unlikely
that S&P would take a positive rating action.  However, if its debt
is refinanced in a timely and favorable manner, and its financial
sponsors maintained policies to keep adjusted leverage notably
below 5x on a sustained basis, it is possible S&P could raise its
ratings on IWG back to 'B+'.  At the very least, S&P would likely
return the outlook to stable if the company addresses the
refinancing before its senior secured notes become current in
October 2016.



INVENTIV HEALTH: Files Registration Statement on Form S-1
---------------------------------------------------------
inVentiv Group Holdings, Inc., on April 5, 2016, filed a

affirmed the Caa1 Corporate Family Rating and Caa1-PD Probability
of Default Rating of inVentiv Health, Inc. as well as all of the
instrument ratings.  The Caa1 rating reflects inVentiv's very high
leverage, history of negative free cash flow and significant
interest burden which will make a default event likely if the
company does not significantly improve its EBITDA performance well
ahead of 2018, when all of the company's debt matures.

JEMSEK CLINIC: BCBSNC's Bid to Stay Enforcement of Judgment OK'd
----------------------------------------------------------------
Plaintiff Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina filed a
Motion to Stay Enforcement of Judgment and to Fix Amount of
Supersedeas Bond.

The United States District Court for the Western District of North
Carolina, Charlotte Division, entered an Order and Judgment against
BCBSNC and in favor of Defendants Jemsek Clinic, P.A., and Joseph
G. Jemsek.  BCBSNC filed an appeal of the Judgment to the United
States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit.  In conjunction
with the appeal, BCBSNC filed its Motion to Stay along with a bond
in the amount of $1,305,362.  The original bond named the
Defendants, as the parties to the Judgment, as Obligees; however,
after consultation, the parties have obtained an amendment to the
bond to make the Defendants' counsel Langdon Cooper the Obligee of
the bond. BCBSNC is entitled to a stay as a matter of right.

All parties have agreed to the proposed language for the
supersedeas bond as well as the amount of the bond.  The Court
found that a bond in the amount of $1,305,362 is sufficient to
permit full satisfaction of the judgment together with costs and
interest. Accordingly, the Court will grant BCBSNC's Motion to
Stay. Specifically, the Court approves the supersedeas bond, sets
the amount of the bond at no more than $1,305,362.88, and stays
enforcement of the Judgment against BCBSNC.

In an Order dated March 21, 2016, which is available at
http://is.gd/nt5yzyfrom Leagle.com, Judge Robert J. Conrad of the
United States District Court for the Western District of North
Carolina, Charlotte Division, ordered that the Judgment is property
of the bankruptcy estate.  Judge Conrad also granted BCBSNC's
Motion to Stay Enforcement of Judgment and to Fix Amount of
Supersedeas Bond.  The Court accepts and receives the bond, in the
amount of $1,305,362.

KLD ENERGY: Hires Husch Blackwell as Bankruptcy Counsel
-------------------------------------------------------
KLD Energy Technologies, Inc. seeks permission from the Hon. H.
Christopher Mott of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Western
District of Texas to employ Husch Blackwell LLP as bankruptcy
counsel.

The Debtor desires to employ Lynn Hamilton Butler and the law firm
Husch Blackwell LLP to serve as its bankruptcy counsel in this
case.  The scope of representation would be providing legal advice
regarding strategic options, including the preparation and
prosecution of a Chapter 11 reorganization bankruptcy.

Husch Blackwell will charge attorney fees and expenses at its

Butler's hourly rate for this case is $500. The rates of other
attorneys in Husch Blackwell assisting range from $160 to $770 an
hour and paralegal rates are from $115 to $295 an hour.

Husch Blackwell will also be reimbursed for reasonable
out-of-pocket expenses incurred.

Husch Blackwell received a retainer of $45,000 for services to be
performed in connection with this case, of which $30,000 was loaned
to the Debtor by the proposed debtor-in-possession lender but was
paid directly to the Firm. Of that retainer, $42,730 was offset by
the Firm immediately before filing of the Case.

Pursuant to an agreement reached with the proposed
debtor-in-possession lender, upon interim approval of the Debtor's
proposed financing motion, the Firm will receive an additional
$50,000 into its trust account as a post-petition retainer to be
held by the Firm as an evergreen retainer to be drawn upon only
after appropriate orders are entered by the Court.

interest adverse to the Debtors and their estates.

LOMA LINDA: Fitch Assigns 'BB+' Rating on $883MM Revenue Bonds
--------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has assigned a 'BB+' rating to the approximately $883
million California Statewide Communities Development Authority
revenue bonds series 2016A issued on behalf of Loma Linda
University Medical Center (LLUMC).  In addition, Fitch has affirmed
the 'BB+' rating on LLUMC's outstanding debt, which is listed at
the end of this release.

The Rating Outlook is revised to Stable from Negative.

The series 2016A bonds will be fixed rate and bond proceeds will be
used to fund a portion of the cost of LLUMC's campus transformation
project ($599 million), fund capitalized interest through December
2019 and a debt service reserve fund ($258 million), refund the
series 2014C bonds ($13 million), and pay costs of issuance.  The
series 2016A bonds are expected to price the week of April 25th.

                               SECURITY

The bonds are secured by a gross revenue pledge and mortgage pledge
of the obligated group (OG). In addition, there is a debt service
reserve fund.  The OG accounted for 99.9% of the net patient
service revenue and 98.3% of the total net assets of the
consolidated entity in 2015 (Dec. 31 fiscal year end; audited).
Fitch's analysis is based on the consolidated entity, Loma Linda
University Medical Center and Affiliates.

KEY RATING DRIVERS

EXPECTATIONS FROM LAST REVIEW MET: The revision in the Outlook to
Stable from Negative reflects 2015 performance that exceeded
budgeted targets (adjusted for one-time items), as well as project
cost and financing plans which were kept in line with what was
presented during Fitch's last review in September 2015, when the
rating was downgraded to 'BB+' from 'BBB-' and incorporated this
sizeable issuance.

CAMPUS TRANSFORMATION PROJECT UNDERWAY: Due to state mandated
seismic requirements, LLUMC is embarking on a massive project with
the construction of 983,000 square feet of new space, which will
include an adult patient tower, children's patient tower, as well
as expanded capacity in the emergency room, operating rooms and
diagnostic imaging.  All of the beds will be private and will
include shelled space for 60 beds.  The total project cost is
$1.084 billion, and $1.022 billion is remaining to be spent.  The
sources of funding include $599 million from the series 2016A
bonds, $165 million from state grant funding, $120 million from
philanthropy, and $138 million from operating cash flow.

BETTER OPERATING PERFORMANCE: LLUMC engaged a consultant and
started to implement a performance improvement plan in the latter
part of 2015 focused on clinical operations, revenue cycle,
non-labor and supplies cost, labor productivity, and clinical
documentation.  Initiatives implemented to date are yielding a $90
million annual impact.  There is a continued focus on reducing
length of stay and reaching the 50th percentile on CMI adjusted
length of stay as well as improving labor productivity.  Adjusted
for one-time items in 2015 ($21 million consulting expense and $26
million of provider fee funds related to the period but not
recorded due to a delay in CMS approval) resulted in $99.6 million
of operating income (6.2% operating margin and 13% operating EBITDA
margin) and this level of performance is expected to be sustained.


HIGH DEBT BURDEN: With this issuance, MADS accounted for a very
high 6.8% of total revenue in 2015 and results in weak pro forma
debt service coverage of 1.6x in 2015 (2x adjusted for one-time
items).  Fitch believes there are opportunities with the new
project including improved operational efficiencies and capacity
for additional volume, which should assist in moderating the debt
burden over time as additional revenue and benefits from the new
facility are achieved.

WEAK LIQUIDITY: LLUMC's liquidity has historically been weak, but
improved in 2015 with 112.7 days cash on hand and 53.9% cash to
debt at Dec. 31, 2015.  Cash to debt on a pro forma basis is a very
weak 26.5%, but is in line with what was presented during the Sept.
2015 review.

KEY PLAYER IN MARKET: One of LLUMC's main credit strengths is its
position as an academic medical center and its role as a major
provider of tertiary and quaternary services in addition to its
teaching and research mission.  Under leadership from a relatively
new team (about two years), the organization is developing various
strategies to secure its market position in a growing service area
and to prepare for population health management.  These include
physician alignment initiatives, affiliations with other providers,
and partnerships with payers.  LLUMC is in the early stages of
developing a clinically integrated network.

CHALLENGING PAYOR MIX: The system has been challenged by its
unfavorable payor mix and the system is the second-largest provider
of Medi-Cal services in the state.  Given the high Medi-Cal burden,
LLUMC's profitability and cash flow have benefited from the state
provider fee program, which started in 2010 (payments retroactive
to April 2009) and is in place through
Dec. 31, 2016.  There is a ballot initiative in November 2016 to
make the program permanent and it is management's expectation that
it will pass.

                        RATING SENSITIVITIES

MANAGEMENT EXECUTION IS CRUCIAL: Management's ability to complete
the project on time and within budget while sustaining the improved
operating performance will be crucial to maintaining the current
rating, as LLUMC has limited financial flexibility.  An unfavorable
deviation from plan would likely result in negative rating action.

                          CREDIT PROFILE

Loma Linda Medical Center and Affiliates is part of Loma Linda
University Health (LLUH), which also includes Loma Linda
University, the Faculty Medical Group and several other related
organizations.  A board restructuring in April 2015 resulted in one
unified board with additional physician representation.  There are
no consolidated financials available at LLUH.

LLUMC is located in Loma Linda, CA, 60 miles east of Los Angeles,
with a total of 1,076 licensed beds.  LLUMC houses the nation's
first hospital-based proton treatment center for cancer.  The
hospitals are University Hospital, Children's Hospital, East Campus
Hospital, Surgical Hospital, Behavioral Medicine Center, and
Murrieta Hospital.  LLUMC had total revenue of $1.6 billion in
2015.  A new CEO has been in a permanent role since August 2014
(prior counsel), and with additional executive management changes,
there is a focus on accountability and performance improvement,
which will need to be sustained given the campus transformation
project.

Campus Transformation Project
University Hospital is required to meet seismic compliance by Jan.
1, 2020 and a campus transformation project has been in the
planning stages for many years.  The final project cost and scope
is in line with what was presented during Fitch's review in
Sept. 2015 with a small increase ($36 million) related to the
potential addition of a vertical ground motion isolation system
since a new fault line was discovered under the site.  However,
this is new technology and LLUMC may not move forward with this
addition if it is not approved.  Regardless, the building can
receive final sign-off by the engineers without this addition.

The campus transformation project includes two new patient towers
(adult and children's) with all private rooms, expanded and
separate emergency rooms (adult and children's), expanded neonatal
intensive care unit and birthing center, 16 new operating rooms
(five additional), enhanced diagnostic imaging services and
cardiovascular labs.  The project will result in 983,000 square
feet of new space with a total capacity of 693 licensed beds (320
adult and 377 children's) once the shelled space is built out for
the additional 60 beds.  The project cost is $1.084 billion ($1.05
billion at time of last review in Sept. 2015) with $1.022 billion
remaining to be spent.  Total construction cost is $771 million and
a guaranteed maximum price contract is secured for $727 million.
Other costs relate to design, equipment, information technology,
and contingency.

The sources of funding are $599 million from the series 2016A
bonds, $165 million from state grants (Proposition 61 and 3
voter-approved ballot initiatives for children's hospital
construction), $120 million from philanthropy and $138 million from
cash flow. This is in line with what was presented during Fitch's
last review and is slightly better with more funds being generated
through bond proceeds and less reliance on funding from operating
cash flow.

The project is expected to start construction in May 2016, be
complete by December 2019 and open by June 2020.  This is a tight
timeframe to meet the regulatory deadline related to seismic
requirements; however, Fitch believes LLUMC would have other
options if there were a delay in the construction schedule, such as
requesting an extension in the deadline.  Fitch would view
unfavorably any shortfalls in the planned funding sources or
project cost overruns.

Improved Operating Performance
LLUMC's operating performance in 2015 (adjusted for one-time items)
sustained its improved profitability with a 6.2% operating margin
($99.6 million operating income) compared to 4.1% in 2014, and
performance has exceeded budget.  One-time items in 2015 included
$21 million of consulting fees and $26 million of provider fee
funds related to 2015 that could not be recorded due to the delay
in CMS approval related to the managed care portion of the program.
Actual 2015 operating margin was 3.3%.

Factors driving improved performance include strong utilization
growth due to Medi-Cal expansion, improved payor mix and
implementation of performance improvement initiatives.  Discharges
and emergency room visits have increased 5.8% and 11.3%,
respectively, in 2015 from the prior year.  Payor mix continues to
improve with self-pay as a percentage of net revenue declining to
1% in 2015 from 4.5% in 2013.  Management implemented several
performance improvement initiatives in the latter part of 2015,
which have an annual impact of $90 million.  This has led to
continued strong operating performance through February 2016. There
continues to be additional opportunity and management is focused on
reducing length of stay, cost per adjusted discharge, and improving
clinical documentation and labor productivity. Management budgeted
a bottom line of approximately $100 million in 2016 (includes
transfers to affiliates as an operating expense).

There have been ongoing transfers to affiliates, which are below
the line but management views as an operating expense.  These
transfers to affiliates are generally for the support of the School
of Medicine and are projected to be around $26 million-$28 million
a year.

Murrieta has historically been challenged and hampered by high
capital costs. Given the refinancing in 2014, improved volumes, and
other operating improvement initiatives, Murrieta had a bottom line
loss of $7.7 million in 2015 compared to negative $32 million in
2013.  Murrieta's performance would be closer to breakeven in 2015
excluding a $7 million prior period Medi-Cal adjustment that
management is currently appealing.

California enacted a hospital provider fee in 2010 to draw down
additional federal funds for Medi-Cal services.  Given LLUMC's high
Medi-Cal load, LLUMC has been a major beneficiary of the program,
however, the timing of the approval of the various components of
the program results in variability of when funds are recorded.
LLUMC booked a net benefit of $43 million in 2011, $63 million in
2012, $87 million in 2013, $65 million in 2014, and $61 million in
2015.  The current provider fee program is in place through Dec.
31, 2016 and there is a ballot initiative in November 2016 to make
the program permanent.

Weak Liquidity
Total unrestricted cash and investments at Dec. 31, 2015 was $448.6
million, which resulted in 112.7 days cash on hand (DCOH) and 53.9%
cash to debt, which improved from 96.4 days and 44.7% cash to debt
at Dec. 31, 2014 due mainly to the receipt of provider fee
receivables (declined to $40 million at Dec. 31, 2015 from $129
million at Dec. 31, 2014).

Given LLUMC's weak liquidity position, there is minimal cushion for
a deviation in planned funding sources of the project.  A lower
than expected amount from philanthropy ($120 million) would be
viewed negatively and to date, $142.3 million has been raised with
$48.9 million received in cash.  The availability of the state
grant funding had conditions (meeting certain financial targets),
which have been met, and this funding source will be used first to
fund the children's hospital portion of the project.

Financial Projections Attainable
LLUMC's financial projections for 2016-2023 assume continued
performance improvement initiatives and modest volume growth.  The
provider fee is included at $89 million a year and annual operating
EBITDA margin is maintained at 13%-14%, which was LLUMC's
performance in 2015 adjusted for one-time items (13%). There is
capitalized interest through Dec. 2019 and annual debt service
coverage is projected above 3x in the forecast period, while MADS
coverage is around 2.5x.

In addition to the campus transformation project, the projections
include approximately $764 million of other capital spending that
could be flexed according to management.

Solidifying Market Position

LLUMC's market share has increased in its service area, which is
defined as the Inland Empire (San Bernardino and Riverside
counties).  It offers quaternary and tertiary services and has the
only level-I trauma center and level-IV neonatal intensive care
unit in the service area.  LLUMC's Medicare case mix index is very
high at 2.04.  LLUMC's market share has increased to 10.58% in 2014
compared to 10% in 2012 and the next closest competitor,
Kaiser-Fontana, had 6.7% market share.  However, Kaiser has several
facilities in the area and Kaiser's combined market share in the
region was 11.8%.

LLUMC has several strategies underway to solidify and expand its
market position in the growing Inland Empire.  LLUMC is in the
early stages of developing a clinically integrated network
(University Preferred Health Partners) with other providers
(hospitals and physician groups) in the service area as well as
partnering with payers to better manage the care and cost
especially of the Medi-Cal population.  These strategies are still
early in formation and Fitch will monitor the execution of the
various strategies.

Debt Profile

Total outstanding debt after the series 2016A bonds is projected to
be approximately $1.7 billion and will be 100% fixed rate.  Debt
includes $1.6 billion of bonds (series 2016 and 2014A&B), $80
million of note payables and capital leases, and $31 million of
non-obligated group guarantees.  MADS is approximately $107 million
and debt service is back-loaded with MADS occurring in 2025.

LLUMC's $122.8 million of series 2014B bonds was structured as a
10-year bullet and is due on Dec. 1, 2024.  Under the master trust
indenture, this is amortized over 30 years based on the definition
for debt service requirements.  An inability to refinance this debt
would be viewed negatively.

LLUMC has a 60 DCOH covenant and annual debt service coverage
covenant of 1.1x.

Disclosure

LLUMC covenants to provide annual audited information to EMMA
within 150 days of fiscal year end and quarterly information within
60 days of quarter end for the first three quarters and within 90
days of the fourth quarter.  LLUMC will also be hosting investor
calls twice a year beginning in June 2016.

Fitch has affirmed these outstanding debt at 'BB+':

  $12,890,000 California Statewide Communities Development
   Authority (Loma Linda University Medical Center) revenue bonds
   (taxable) series 2014C

  $122,840,000 California Statewide Communities Development
   Authority (Loma Linda University Medical Center) revenue bonds
   (taxable) series 2014B

  $573,295,000 California Statewide Communities Development
   Authority (Loma Linda University Medical Center) revenue bonds
   series 2014A



LOMA LINDA: S&P Cuts Rev. Debt Rating to BB on Weaker Fin. Profile
------------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its long-term rating to
'BB' from 'BB+' on the California Statewide Communities Development
Authority's $573 million series 2014A, $123 million series 2014B,
and $13 million series 2014C revenue bonds, issued for Loma Linda
University Medical Center (LLUMC).  S&P also assigned its 'BB'
long-term rating to the authority's $883 million of series 2016A
fixed-rate bonds, issued for LLUMC.  The outlook is stable.

"We believe the 'BB' rating reflects LLUMC's weaker-than-expected
financial profile, light pro forma MADS coverage due partly to
weaker-than-budgeted operating performance in 2015, and a thin
balance sheet due to the large debt issuance for a significantly
sized project," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Suzie Desai.


Standard & Poor's downgraded LLUMC's debt last year to
non-investment grade due to the pending large capital project and
expected debt issuance that roughly doubles LLUMC's outstanding
debt.  While S&P recognizes that LLUMC's operational liquidity has
improved to budgeted levels, S&P still views operational liquidity
as very light relative to the size and scale of the project and
associated debt, with limited room for any unexpected operating or
project challenges.  Finally, while S&P believes management has
prudently managed all aspects of the project details and its
relationship with the necessary regulatory agencies thus far, there
is, in S&P's view, limited flexibility for delays or challenges.
The 'BB' rating reflects that risk in light of the thin financial
profile.

More specifically, the 'BB' rating reflects heightened pro forma
debt levels, pro forma coverage of under 2x, and just adequate
operational liquidity (albeit at budgeted levels) because of the
scale and scope of the capital project.  In addition, overall cash
flow and performance, which improved toward the end of 2015, were
not at the level S&P expected at the time of its last review.  The
credit continues to be supported by a growing and large regional
presence in an expansive geographic service area with recent
affiliations supporting its position as a key tertiary and
quaternary provider in this competitive and fragmented service
area.

The rating is also supported by management's numerous operating
improvements that are beginning to take hold, and as a result we
expect that performance could strengthen to yield pro forma maximum
annual debt service (MADS) coverage of around 2x for a number of
years.  Management had expected stronger performance in fiscal 2015
but due to various factors that were both in and out of LLUH's
control, results fell short of budgeted and forecasted
expectations.  In S&P's view, management is pursuing sound
strategies that, if executed successfully and consistently, should
bolster cash flow and LLUMC's market position.  While S&P views
these efforts favorably, it would want to see more consistent
performance at the higher level before we consider a higher rating.
In addition, while S&P believes that management has mitigated as
many risks as possible around construction (including a guaranteed
maximum price with a large nationally recognized construction
company) and cash flow, this remains a very large project that
needs to be completed by the end of 2019 due to seismic
regulations.

LLUMC includes several entities.  A subset of these organizations
make up the LLUMC obligated group.  References to LLUMC include
both the obligated and nonobligated group entities unless specified
differently.



LOUISIANA PELLETS: Seeks April 28 Extension to File Schedules
-------------------------------------------------------------
Louisiana Pellets, Inc., and German Pellets Louisiana, LLC, ask the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of Louisiana to
extend the time for filing schedules of assets and liabilities and
statements of financial affairs through April 28, 2016.

The Debtors represent to the Court that the Office of the United
States Trustee has agreed to the requested extension.

C. Davin Boldissar, Esq., at Locke Lord LLP, in New Orleans,
Louisiana -- dboldissar@lockelord.com -- asserts that the Debtors
have a few hundred creditors about whom they must develop pertinent
information, including names, addresses, claim amounts and
applicable security for those claims.  He adds that to properly
complete the Schedules and SOFAs, the Debtors must prepare, among
other items, lists of assets, lists of payments made to creditors,
lists of payments made to insiders, and lists of executory
contracts and unexpired leases and the counterparties to those
contracts and leases.

Completing the Schedules and SOFAs for each of the Debtors requires
the collection, review and assembly of a considerable amount of
information held in Louisiana, Texas and Germany, Mr. Boldissar
argues.  He contends that notwithstanding the Court's prior grant
of an extension of time, because records from which information
must be obtained are located in a number of places, the Debtors
have been extensively engaged in arranging DIP financing, retaining
a chief restructuring officer and maintaining their workforce and
their industrial facility, and some of the personnel most familiar
with the Debtors' finances also have obligations to the Debtors'
parent and affiliate corporate entities, the Debtors have not been
able to complete the preparation of their Schedules and SOFAs.

METINVEST BV: Court Grants Petition to Recognize Restructuring
--------------------------------------------------------------
A U.S. bankruptcy court granted the petition to recognize Metinvest
BV's $2 billion debt restructuring in London.
  
Svitlana Romanova, Metinvest's foreign representative, obtained an
order from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Delaware granting her
petition to recognize the company's debt restructuring as a
"foreign nonmain proceeding."

The court order, issued by Judge Laurie Selber Silverstein, bars
certain creditors from taking action against the U.S. subsidiaries
of Metinvest, one of Ukraine's largest steel mining companies.

                       About Metinvest B.V.

Svitlana Romanova, in her capacity as foreign representative of
Metinvest B.V., filed a Chapter 15 bankruptcy petition in the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware (Bankr. D. Del. Case
No. 16-10105) on Jan. 13, 2016, in the United States, seeking
recognition of a scheme of arrangement under part 26 of the English
Companies Act 2006 currently pending before the High Court of
Justice of England and Wales.

The Debtor and its subsidiaries claim to be the largest vertically
integrated mining and steel business in Ukraine.  

Joseph M Barry, Esq., at Young Conaway Stargatt & Taylor, LLP,
counsel for the petitioner, said the Metinvest Group has struggled
in recent years in light of the ongoing political turmoil in
Ukraine since the end of 2013, which has negatively impacted
Ukraine's economy and the protracted slump in prices for steel
products, coal, and iron ore throughout much of 2014 and 2015.

The petitioner has engaged Young, Conaway, Stargatt & Taylor and
Allen & Overy LLP as her as counsel.  

Judge Laurie Selber Silverstein has been assigned the case.


MGM RESORTS: Prices $1.05 Billion Senior Notes Offering by Unit
---------------------------------------------------------------
MGM Resorts International announced that its indirect wholly-owned
subsidiaries, MGP Escrow Issuer, LLC and MGP Escrow Co-Issuer,
Inc., have priced $1.05 billion in aggregate principal amount of
5.625% senior notes due 2024 in a private placement at par.  The
notes have been offered in connection with the formation of MGM
Growth Properties LLC, a real estate investment trust that will be
a subsidiary of the Company.  Following the consummation of certain
formation transactions, the Issuer will be merged with and into MGM
Growth Properties Operating Partnership LP.  The offering is
expected to close on April 20, 2016, subject to customary closing
conditions.

The Issuers plan to use the net proceeds, together with the
proceeds from other anticipated financings in connection with the
formation transactions, to refinance indebtedness assumed by the OP
from the Company in connection with the formation transactions, and
to pay related fees and expenses.

The notes proposed to be offered will not be registered under the
Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or any state securities laws
and may not be offered or sold in the United States or to any U.S.
persons absent registration under the Securities Act, or pursuant
to an applicable exemption from, or in a transaction not subject
to, the registration requirements of the Securities Act and
applicable state securities laws.  The notes have been offered only
to "qualified institutional buyers" under Rule 144A of the
Securities Act or, outside the United States, to persons other than
"U.S. persons" in compliance with Regulation S under the Securities
Act.

                       About MGM Resorts

MGM Resorts International (NYSE: MGM) a global hospitality
company, operating a portfolio of destination resort brands
including Bellagio, MGM Grand, Mandalay Bay and The Mirage. The
Company also owns 51% of MGM China Holdings Limited, which owns
the MGM Macau resort and casino and is in the process of
developing a gaming resort in Cotai, and 50% of CityCenter in Las
Vegas, which features ARIA resort and casino. For more
information about MGM Resorts International, visit the Company’s
Web site at www.mgmresorts.com.

MGM Resorts reported a net loss attributable to the Company of
$447.72 million in 2015, a net loss attributable to the Company of
$149.87 million in 2014 and a net loss attributable to the Company
of $171.73 milion in 2013.

As of Dec. 31, 2015, MGM Resorts had $25.21 billion in total
assets, $17.45 billion in total liabilities and $7.76 billion in
total stockholders' equity.

                           *     *     *

As reported by the TCR on Nov. 14, 2011, Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services raised its corporate credit rating on MGM Resorts
International to 'B-' from 'CCC+'.   In March 2012, S&P revised
the outlook to positive from stable.

"The revision of our rating outlook to positive reflects strong
performance in 2011 and our expectation that MGM will continue to
benefit from the improving performance trends on the Las Vegas
Strip," S&P said.

In March 2012, Moody's Investors Service affirmed its B2 corporate
family rating and probability of default rating.  The affirmation
of MGM's B2 Corporate Family Rating reflects Moody's view that
positive lodging trends in Las Vegas will continue through 2012
which will help improve MGM's leverage and coverage metrics,
albeit modestly. Additionally, the company's declaration of a $400
million dividend ($204 million to MGM) from its 51% owned Macau
joint venture due to be paid shortly will also improve the
company's liquidity profile. The ratings also consider MGM's
recent bank amendment that resulted in about 50% of its
$3.5 billion senior credit facility being extended one year from
2014 to 2015.

As reported by the TCR on Sept. 29, 2014, Fitch Ratings has
upgraded MGM Resorts International's (MGM) and MGM China Holdings
Ltd's (MGM China) IDRs to 'B+' from 'B' and 'BB' from 'BB-',
respectively.  Fitch's upgrade of MGM's IDR to 'B+' and the
Positive Outlook reflect the company's strong performance on the
Las Vegas Strip and in Macau as well as Fitch's longer-term
positive outlooks for these markets.


MIDWAY GOLD: Asks Court to Extend Plan Filing Date to June 16
-------------------------------------------------------------
Midway Gold US Inc. and the affiliated debtors ask the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court to further extend the period by which they have
exclusive right to file a plan through and including June 16, 2016,
and the period by which they have exclusive right to solicit
acceptances of that plan through and including August 18, 2016.

The Debtors tell the Court that they have already obtained two
prior extensions of the Exclusivity Periods, however, since the
Court has granted the second extension, they focused on conducting
a transaction process, in consultation with the Official Committee
of Unsecured Creditors and their prepetition lenders, Commonwealth
Bank of Australia and Hale Capital Partners, to identify all
available restructuring alternatives in accordance with the
milestones approved by the Court in the Final Cash Collateral
Order, and moving the sale process forward.

Therefore, the Debtors assert, an additional time is needed to
formulate a plan, and that a further extension of the Exclusivity
Periods is necessary to facilitate the Transaction Process that is
underway that will enable continued discussions and negotiations on
a consensual basis with all key parties and stakeholders while
providing the Debtors with continued control over the plan
confirmation process and related matters.

               About Midway Gold

Midway Gold Corp., incorporated on May 14, 1996 under the laws of
the Province of British Columbia, Canada, is engaged in the
acquisition, exploration and development of mineral properties
located in the state of Nevada and Washington.

Midway Gold operates primarily through its wholly-owned subsidiary
located in the United States, Midway Gold US Inc.  The executive
offices are in Englewood, Colorado.  Midway US currently has one
gold producing property: the Pan gold mine located in White Pine
County, Nevada.  Midway also has gold properties which are
exploratory stage projects where gold mineralization has been
identified, such as the Tonopah project in Nye County, Nevada, the
Gold Rock project in White Pine County, Nevada, and the Golden
Eagle project in Ferry County, Washington.  Out of these projects,
a permitting process has been undertaken only for the Gold Rock
project.  Finally, Midway's Spring Valley property, another gold
property located in Pershing County, Nevada, is subject to a joint
venture with Barrick Gold Exploration Inc.

On June 22, 2015, Midway Gold US Inc. and 12 related entities,
including parent Midway Gold Corp. each filed a petition in the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Colorado seeking relief
under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.  The Debtors' cases
have been assigned to Judge Michael E. Romero.  

Judge Michael E. Romero directed the joint administration of the
cases under Case No. 15-16835.

The Debtors tapped Squire Patton Boggs (US) LLP as lead bankruptcy
counsel; Sender Wasserman Wadsworth, P.C., as special bankruptcy
and restructuring counsel; DLA Piper (Canada) LLP, as Canadian
bankruptcy counsel; Ernst & Young Inc., as information officer of
Canadian court; RBC Capital Markets, as investment banker; FTI
Consulting as financial advisor; and Epiq Solutions, as claims and
noticing agent.

Midway Gold Corp. disclosed $184 million in assets and $62.4
million in liabilities as of March 31, 2015.  Midway Gold US Inc.,
disclosed total assets of $2,461,673 and total liabilities of
$122,448,181 as of the Chapter 11 filing.

In July, the U.S. Trustee overseeing the Debtors' cases appointed
seven creditors to serve on the official committee of unsecured
creditors.  The creditors are American Assay Laboratories, EPC
Services Company, InFaith Community Foundation, Jacobs Engineering
Group Inc., SRK Consulting (US) Inc., Sunbelt Rentals, and Boart
Longyear.  Gavin/Solmonese LLC serves as its financial advisor.


MIDWAY GOLD: Seeks to Sell Remaining Assets
-------------------------------------------
Midway Gold US Inc. and the affiliated debtors seek authority from
the U.S. Bankruptcy Court to sell their remaining assets and ask
the Court to approve procedures governing the bidding and auction
of the assets.

The Debtors also seek authority to designate one or more stalking
horse purchasers and to offer customary bid protections, including
a break-up fee in an amount of up to 3% of the proposed purchase
price, expense reimbursement of up to a cap of $150,000, and
bidding increments to compensate for the risk and for all the due
diligence and time that goes into executing a full stalking horse
purchase agreement.   

According to the Debtors, after the Spring Valley Sale, the
Debtors' remaining material assets collectively comprise of the
following gold mining and exploration projects: one gold producing
property and one near-term gold producing property -- the Pan
Project and the Gold Rock Project; two advanced exploration
properties -- the Golden Eagle Project and the Tonopah Project; and
two highly prospective, early stage exploration projects -- the
Pinyon Project and the RR Claim Group Project.  

The Debtors relate that the Remaining Projects are subject to
significant permitting, bonding and other governmental, regulatory
and environmental requirements that need to be addressed through
the sale process in a possible assignment of governmental permits
and other agreements and rights required to operate the near-term
producing projects and to continue exploring the other projects.
The Remaining Projects also include a mix of leased and owned
mining claims, personal property, water rights, mining and other
service contracts, leases and other rights that will need to be
assigned or otherwise transferred as part of the sale process, the
Debtors added.

The Debtors say that they have commenced a comprehensive process to
identify and evaluate all available restructuring and sale
transaction alternatives, which is undertaken with the full support
and consent of their prepetition secured creditors -- Commonwealth
Bank of Australia and Hale Capital Partners -- and the Official
Committee of Unsecured Creditors.  The Debtors have determined that
the proposed sale of the Assets to the Successful Bidder(s)
following the conclusion of the sale process will maximize value
and benefit their estates and creditors.   

Ledcor CMI Inc. objects to the Preliminary Cure Schedule and the
Debtors' Sale Motion to the extent that the Debtors have not met
the requirements of Section 363(f) of the Bankruptcy Code,
specifically because the Debtors' Cure Schedule have identified the
cure amount owing Ledcor on the Contract as $5,832,976, which is
the amount owing as of Petition Date and does not include accrued
interest, attorneys' fees and costs which Ledcor is also entitled
to.  Ledcor also opposes the assumption of its Contract absent
adequate assurance of future performance and to the extent that the
cure amount to which Ledcor is entitled is not paid.

          About Midway Gold

Midway Gold Corp., incorporated on May 14, 1996 under the laws of
the Province of British Columbia, Canada, is engaged in the
acquisition, exploration and development of mineral properties
located in the state of Nevada and Washington.

Midway Gold operates primarily through its wholly-owned subsidiary
located in the United States, Midway Gold US Inc.  The executive
offices are in Englewood, Colorado.  Midway US currently has one
gold producing property: the Pan gold mine located in White Pine
County, Nevada.  Midway also has gold properties which are
exploratory stage projects where gold mineralization has been
identified, such as the Tonopah project in Nye County, Nevada, the
Gold Rock project in White Pine County, Nevada, and the Golden
Eagle project in Ferry County, Washington.  Out of these projects,
a permitting process has been undertaken only for the Gold Rock
project.  Finally, Midway's Spring Valley property, another gold
property located in Pershing County, Nevada, is subject to a joint
venture with Barrick Gold Exploration Inc.

On June 22, 2015, Midway Gold US Inc. and 12 related entities,
including parent Midway Gold Corp. each filed a petition in the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Colorado seeking relief
under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.  The Debtors' cases
have been assigned to Judge Michael E. Romero.  

Judge Michael E. Romero directed the joint administration of the
cases under Case No. 15-16835.

The Debtors tapped Squire Patton Boggs (US) LLP as lead bankruptcy
counsel; Sender Wasserman Wadsworth, P.C., as special bankruptcy
and restructuring counsel; DLA Piper (Canada) LLP, as Canadian
bankruptcy counsel; Ernst & Young Inc., as information officer of
Canadian court; RBC Capital Markets, as investment banker; FTI
Consulting as financial advisor; and Epiq Solutions, as claims and
noticing agent.

Midway Gold Corp. disclosed $184 million in assets and $62.4
million in liabilities as of March 31, 2015.  Midway Gold US Inc.,
disclosed total assets of $2,461,673 and total liabilities of
$122,448,181 as of the Chapter 11 filing.

In July, the U.S. Trustee overseeing the Debtors' cases appointed
seven creditors to serve on the official committee of unsecured
creditors.  The creditors are American Assay Laboratories, EPC
Services Company, InFaith Community Foundation, Jacobs Engineering
Group Inc., SRK Consulting (US) Inc., Sunbelt Rentals, and Boart
Longyear.  Gavin/Solmonese LLC serves as its financial advisor.


MIDWAY GOLD: Sure Steel Asks Court to Allow MDW Claim as Timely
---------------------------------------------------------------
Sure Steel, Inc., asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court to allow it to
file a secured claim and consider that claim as a timely-filed
claim, or, in the alternative, deem the claim a proper amendment to
the earlier proofs of claim and relate back to September 18, 2015,
when those claims were filed.

Sure Steel asserts that its failure to file the MDW Proof of Claim
is the result of excusable neglect and is not the result of bad
faith or dilatory tactics.  Sure Steel relates that it has
attempted to put everyone on notice when it asserted the Lien Claim
against the Property where Sure Steel identified and believed MDW
Pan, LLC, as a potential owner of the Property when it timely file
its original proofs of claim and Section 546(b) notice in the
Midway Gold US, Inc. and Midway Gold Corp. jointly administered
before the claims bar date.

According to Sure Steel, upon discovery by its counsel of the true
owner of the Property, Sure Steel promptly filed the MDW Pan Proof
of Claim to cure the technical defect in the original proofs of
claim in order to show the true and exact identity of the owner of
the Property subject to the Lien Claim, and thus, Sure Steel is not
attempting to assert a "distinctly new right to payment" since the
Lien Claim is the same as that originally asserted.

Sure Steel further asserts that the amendment will not result in
unfair prejudice to other holders of unsecured claims because MDW
Pan's Co-Debtors, the unsecured creditors are all placed on notice
of everything that Sure Steel timely filed in the jointly
administered cases, including Sure Steel's earlier proofs of claim
and notice of lien.

Furthermore, Sure Steel asserts that the Lien Claim will still be a
valid lien against the Property, even if Sure Steel has not filed
any proof of claim because the Debtor MDW Pan identified Jacobs
Field Services North America, Inc. in its Schedule as the holder of
an undisputed unsecured claim for $4,020,969, and therefore, the
amounts owed to Sure Steel are subsumed within the amounts owed to
Jacobs for Sure Steel is a subcontractor of Jacobs. So that if
Jacobs is paid in full and intends to pay Sure Steel the money it
is owed, the MDW Pan Proof of Claim simply restates sums which will
already be taken care of through payment of the amounts owed to
Jacobs, Sure Steel adds.

The Debtors do not contest Sure Steel's Motion to the extent that
it seeks to deem the Untimely Claims timely-filed; however, the
Debtors object to the extent that the Motion seeks to deem the
Claims allowed and a determination of Sure Steel’s status as a
secured creditor.

------------------------------------------------------------
Debtors Industrial Minerals, LLC, Molycorp Advanced Water
Technologies, LLC, Molycorp Minerals, LLC, PP IV Mountain Pass II,
Inc., PP IV Mountain Pass Inc., and RCF Speedwagon Inc., filed a
motion asking the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of
Delaware to convert each of their Chapter 11 cases to cases under
Chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code and terminate the services of
Prime Clerk LLC in their Chapter 11 cases.

The Molycorp Mineral Debtors relate that they sold certain assets
of Molycorp Minerals, LLC, pursuant to a credit bid asset purchase
agreement submitted by the Ad Hoc 10% Noteholders.  The closing of
the Molycorp Minerals Sale must occur by April 15, 2016, unless
otherwise mutually agreed upon by Molycorp, Inc. and the
purchaser.

According to the the Molycorp Minerals Debtors, they do not believe
that their estates will continue to benefit by remaining in Chapter
11.  Accordingly, the Molycorp Minerals Debtors assert that their
chapter 11 cases should be converted to chapter 7 cases, effective
upon the earlier of 12:00 a.m. (pacific time) on (i) April 29, 2016
or (ii) the second business day after the filing of a certification
of the Debtors' counsel that (a) the Closing as the term is defined
in the Credit Bid Asset Purchase Agreement has occurred, (b) the
transfer of the Downstream Transferred Assets has occurred and (c)
the balance of the Molycorp Minerals Intercompany Amount and the
Inventory Proceeds not used to fund the Minerals Wind-down Expense
Reserve have been distributed to the Pari Passu Collateral Agent.

As previously negotiated under the 10% Noteholder Group Settlement,
the Plan provides an initial amount of $2.5 million to fund certain
Mountain Pass costs, including carrying costs and the chapter 7
costs associated with the remaining assets of Molycorp Minerals not
sold pursuant to the Credit Bid APA or otherwise transferred
pursuant to the terms of the Settlement Agreements.

The Molycorp Minerals Debtors ask that, as of the Conversion Time,
they be withdrawn from, and no longer be administered jointly for
procedural purposes with, the cases of the Plan Debtors under the
docket of Molycorp, Inc. Case No. 15-11357 (CSS).

NEWBURY COMMON: Patriot Bank Loses Bid to Transfer Cases
--------------------------------------------------------
Patriot Bank N.A. has failed to convince the U.S. Bankruptcy Court
in Delaware to transfer the Chapter 11 cases of Newbury Common
Associates LLC and its affiliates to another court.

The Delaware court, which oversees the bankruptcy cases, denied the
bank's request to have them transferred to the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court in Connecticut.

Patriot Bank, a creditor, had argued the Connecticut court is the
proper venue for the cases since the properties owned by the
companies are located in Stanford and that the majority of the
companies are domiciled exclusively in Connecticut.

NORANDA ALUMINUM: Can Reject Sherwin Bauxite Sales Agreement
------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Barry S. Schermer of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Eastern District of Missouri, Southeastern Division, issued a
memorandum opinion authorizing Noranda Aluminum, Inc., et al., to a
long-term bauxite sales agreement between Debtor Noranda Bauxite
Ltd. and Sherwin Alumina Co., LLC.  The Sherwin Contract is
rejected as of February 8, 2016.

According to Judge Schermer, what makes the otherwise ordinary
Section 365 Rejection Motion extraordinary are the parties, timing
and stakes involved. The parties to the Sherwin Contract are each
Chapter 11 debtors in possession.  NBL, which mines and sells
bauxite, filed its petition in the Eastern District of Missouri.
Sherwin, which buys the majority of its bauxite from NBL, filed its
petition in the Southern District of Texas.  As one of its first
day motions, Sherwin moved to assume the Sherwin Contract; NBL
moved to reject the Sherwin Contract the first day of its Chapter
11.  NBL asserts that it will lose approximately $16.5 million
under the contract in 2016 alone.  Sherwin disputes that NBL loses
money on the contract and argues that if rejection is granted, it
may be forced out of business, causing 575 workers to be
unemployed.

Judge Schermer finds that the decision to reject the Sherwin
Contract is one made in the sound exercise of business judgment and
for the benefit of the estate.  There is no evidence of bad faith
or abuse of business discretion, the court said.

Judge Schermer held, "This is an exceptional case.  Not only are
both parties debtors in Chapter 11 cases,
but both face the real prospect of liquidation (i.e. the Upstream
Business for the Noranda Debtors).  However, I decline the
invitation to add a special provision to Bankruptcy Code Section
365 when Congress has elected to do so for other types of contracts
or leases or to impose a heightened standard for rejection where
none is merited.  Accordingly, the long term bauxite sales
agreement between Debtor Noranda Bauxite Ltd. and Sherwin Alumina
Co., LLC is rejected as of February 8, 2016.  Any claim arising out
of the rejection of that contract shall be filed in accordance with
any order pursuant to Bankruptcy Rule 3003(c) establishing a
deadline by which prepetition unsecured nonpriority claims must be
filed."

NORANDA ALUMINUM: June 2 Auction for Downstream Business
--------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Missouri
approved the auction and bidding procedures governing the sale of
Noranda Aluminum, Inc., et al.'s flat rolled products business

maintains and reiterates its reservation of rights set forth in the
Objection, including the Committee's right to object to the Sale,
the Stalking Horse Bidder, the Stalking Horse APA, the relief

Procedures.  The Debtors are also authorized to require Diligence

Inc. Pension Plan for Hourly Paid Employees at the Salisbury, North

Pension Plans, and the Debtors will forward any such financial
information on a confidential basis to the PBGC within two business
days of receipt.

In accordance with the Bidding Procedures and subject to the rights
of parties to object, the Debtors may at any time before April 29,

NORANDA ALUMINUM: Sherwin Seeks Coordination of Texas, Mo. Courts
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Sherwin Alumina Company, LLC, filed an emergency motion for
coordination among the U.S. Bankruptcy Courts for the Southern
District of Texas and the Eastern District of Missouri.

Sherwin and Noranda Bauxite Limited, among other parties, are
engaged in mediation before U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Marvin Isgur in
connection with Sherwin's Chapter 11 case.

Joshua A. Sussberg, Esq., at Kirkland & Ellis LLP, in New York --
joshua.sussberg@kirkland.com -- says that a commercial arrangement
between Sherwin and NBL is necessary to maintain Sherwin's
viability.  He states that Sherwin and NBL have also engaged in
discussions (both inside and outside of mediation) to continue
providing bauxite to Sherwin to avoid its immediate shut down.
More specifically, the parties have discussed an interim solution
that would allow Sherwin to secure two bauxite shipments from NBL
for delivery no later than March 30 (at a to-be-agreed-upon price
for these two shipments only), which would extend Sherwin's runway
and give the parties additional time to participate in mediation
and search for a solution.  He notes that the parties have been
unable to reach agreement on the price for these two shipments of
bauxite.

In an effort to avoid the loss of thousands of jobs and give the
mediation a chance at success, Sherwin asks that the Texas
Bankruptcy Court enter an order directing NBL to deliver two
bauxite shipments to Sherwin at a price equal to NBL's variable
cost plus 10%, all as determined by the Texas Bankruptcy Court on
an interim basis.  Sherwin agrees that it will immediately pay to
NBL 50% of the price determined by the Texas Bankruptcy Court via
wire transfer, and will pay the remaining balance immediately upon
delivery in Texas.

Sherwin fully recognizes and appreciates the unique status that NBL
has by virtue of its bankruptcy filing and the jurisdiction that
the Missouri Bankruptcy Court has over NBL and its affairs, Mr.
Sussberg asserts.  In light of this, Sherwin asks that the Missouri
Bankruptcy Court enter an order scheduling a hearing to review and
approve the purchase price determined by the Texas Bankruptcy
Court.  To the extent the Missouri Bankruptcy Court makes a
determination that the purchase price should be adjusted, NBL will
be entitled to an allowed administrative claim against Sherwin for
the differential, which claim will be entitled to administrative
priority in Sherwin's Chapter 11 case.

Sherwin also requests that the Texas Bankruptcy Court and the
Missouri Bankruptcy Court each abate currently scheduled litigation
pending the completion of (or an impasse in) mediation to the
extent an order is entered directing the delivery of the two
bauxite shipments.

At a minimum, the Missouri Bankruptcy Court should adjourn
Sherwin's date for responding to the motion to reject the bauxite
contract as well as the hearing on that motion Mr. Sussberg
contends.

OHIO VALLEY: Moody's Lowers Rating on $25MM Debt to B2
------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgrades Ohio Valley General Hospital's
rating to B2 from Ba3, affecting approximately $25 million of
outstanding debt. The outlook is negative.

The severity of the downgrade to B2 reflects a confluence of
material developments in the interim period including large
operating losses and negative cash flow, significant recent
liquidity declines, and minimal headroom under covenants resulting
in high debt acceleration risk. Losses and cash decline were driven
by volume declines, a significant increase in labor expense and
higher capital spending. Liquidity levels and the ability to meet
covenants are highly dependent on investment returns, which are
very unpredictable given high exposure to equities. The rating also
reflects the hospital's vulnerability as a small provider in a
competitive broader market and high operating leverage. The
negative outlook represents elevated risks of a covenant breach and
debt acceleration following a stark departure from historic levels
of operating performance, which will trigger further liquidity
declines if operating losses are not reversed.

Rating Outlook

The negative outlook reflects risks of breaching a covenant and
debt acceleration or further liquidity decline if operating losses
continue at the current pace.

Factors that Could Lead to an Upgrade

Material and sustained enterprise growth leading to revenue and
patient volume gains

Sustainable and meaningful increase in operating cash flow

A strong affiliation or merger with a larger system

Factors that Could Lead to a Downgrade

Failure to meet covenants or reduced headroom under covenants

Increased acceleration risk

Failure to reach operating cash flows to levels that support debt
service and capital

Further weakening of liquidity

Legal Security

Payments of principal and interest on the Series 2005 Bonds and
Series 2003 Bonds are secured by the gross revenues of the
Obligated Group together with a lien on, and security interest in,
substantially all property and equipment. The Obligated Group
consists of the Hospital including The Residence at Willow Lane,
The Residence at Willow Heights, Willow Brook, and Pathways. The
Series 2011 Bond is secured by substantially all assets of The
Residence at Willow Lane and The Residence at Willow Heights, first
priority interest shared with existing bondholders of the revenues
of the obligated group, and an assignment of leases and rents of
each The Residence at Willow Lane and The Residence at Willow
Heights.

Use of Proceeds

Not applicable.

Obligor Profile

OVGH is a private, standalone, community hospital in Kennedy
Township, Pennsylvania, serving Pittsburgh's western suburbs. The
system is comprised of an 138-bed acute care hospital, two senior
living facilities, a School of Nursing, a School of Radiography and
various outpatient facilities.


PACIFIC RECYCLING: Seeks to Extend Plan Filing Date to June 30
--------------------------------------------------------------
Pacific Recycling, Inc., asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Oregon to extend the time and exclusive right to file a
plan of reorganization through June 30, 2016, and to obtain
acceptance of the plan through September 29, 2016.

Laura J. Walker, Esq., at Cable Huston LLP, in Portland, Oregon --
lwalker@cablehuston.com -- asserts that the Debtor needs additional
time to prepare the disclosure statement and to complete its plan.
She contends that the extension of time is necessary to formulate
the structure and terms of its plan of reorganization.

The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors tells the Court that
it does not object to the request for an extension of time to file
the Plan of Reorganization and Disclosure Statement, but its
position is not known with regard to the request to extend
exclusivity, Ms. Walker says.

                     About Pacific Recycling

Pacific Recycling, Inc. filed a Chapter 11 bankruptcy petition
(Bankr. D. Ore. Case No. 15-62925) on Aug. 27, 2015.  The petition

PACIFIC SUNWEAR: Asks Court to Set POC Filing Deadlines
-------------------------------------------------------
Pacific Sunwear of California, Inc., Miraloma Borrower Corporation,
and Pacific Sunwear Stores Corp. asked the Bankruptcy Court to
establish:

   (i) 5:00 p.m. (prevailing Eastern Time) on the date that is 35
       days after the Bar Date Notice Mailing Date as the deadline
       by which each person or entity, other than governmental
       units, must file a proof of claim based on claims against
       the Debtors that arose prior to the Petition Date; and

  (ii) Oct. 7, 2016, at 5:00 p.m. (prevailing Eastern Time) as the
       government bar date.

With respect to the claims of any affected counterparty or other
party-in-interest asserting a claim against the Debtors arising
from the rejection of an executory contract or unexpired lease, the
Debtors propose the deadline for filing a Proof of Claim asserting
any claims based on such rejection to be the later of (i) 5:00 p.m.
(prevailing Eastern Time) on the date that is 30 days after the
entry of an order approving the rejection of the executory contract
or unexpired lease, and (ii) the General Bar Date.

The Debtors propose to mail a Bar Date Package on a date that is
on or after the Schedules Filing Date (the "Bar Date Notice Mailing
Date"), that will allow all claim holders whose claims are subject
to the General Bar Date 35 days to prepare and file their Proofs of
Claim.  The Debtors anticipate completing and filing their
Schedules within 15 days of the Petition Date.

According to Maris J. Kandestin, Esq., at Young Conaway Stargatt &
Taylor, LLP, counsel to the Debtors, in light of the size,
complexity, and geographic diversity of the Debtors' operations,
potential claims against the Debtors may exist that the Debtors
have been unable to identify on the Schedules.  Such unknown
potential claims may include: (i) claims of trade vendors that
failed to submit invoices to the Debtors; (ii) claims of former
employees; (iii) claims of current or former customers; (iv) claims
of persons or entities with unasserted causes of action against the
Debtors; and (v) other claims that, for various other reasons, are
not recorded in the Debtors' books and records, are unknown to the
Debtors, or are in respect of creditors with addresses unknown to
the Debtors.  Thus, Ms. Kandestin said, it is in best interests of
the Debtors' estates to give notice to certain parties by
publication of the Bar Dates.  The Debtors propose to publish the
Bar Date Notice once in the national edition of USA Today.

The Debtors propose that any holder of a claim who is required, but
fails, to file a Proof of Claim in accordance with the Bar Date
Order on or before the applicable Bar Date will be forever barred,
estopped, and enjoined from asserting such claim against any of
them and will not be permitted to vote to accept or reject any
Chapter 11 plan filed in these Cases, participate in any
distribution in these Cases on account of such claim, or receive
further notices.

On April 7, 2016, Pacific Sunwear of California, Inc., and two
affiliated debtors each filed a voluntary petition for relief under
Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court
for the District of Delaware.  The cases are pending before the
Honorable Laurie Selber Silverstein, and the Debtors have requested
joint administration of the cases under Case No. 16-10882.

The Debtors sought Chapter 11 protection with a Chapter 11 plan
that would convert debt into equity.

The Debtors tapped Young Conaway Stargatt & Taylor, LLP, and Klee,
Tuchin, Bogdanoff & Stern LLP as attorneys; FTI Consulting, Inc.,

banker; and Prime Clerk LLC as claims and noticing agent.


PACIFIC SUNWEAR: Hires Prime Clerk as Claims and Noticing Agent
---------------------------------------------------------------
Pacific Sunwear of California, Inc., Miraloma Borrower Corporation,
and Pacific Sunwear Stores Corp filed an application with the
Bankruptcy Court appointing Prime Clerk LLC as their claims and
noticing agent, effective nunc pro tunc to the Petition Date.

Although the Debtors have not yet filed their schedules of assets
and liabilities, they anticipate that there will be in excess of
2,000 entities to be noticed in these Cases.  The Debtors said that
by appointing Prime Clerk as the Claims and Noticing Agent in these
Cases, the distribution of notices and the processing of claims
will be expedited, and the Office of the Clerk of the Bankruptcy
Court will be relieved of the administrative burden of processing
what may be an overwhelming number of claims.

Prime Clerk's claims and noticing rates are:

       Title                              Hourly Rate
       -----                              -----------
       Analyst                             $25-$45
       Technology Consultant               $35-$70
       Consultant/Senior Consultant        $60-$155
       Director                              $175
       Solicitation Consultant               $190
       Director of Solicitation              $195

In addition, the Debtors agreed to pay for reasonable out of pocket
expenses incurred by Prime Clerk in connection with the services.

The Debtors requested that the undisputed fees and expenses
incurred by Prime Clerk in the performance of the services be
treated as administrative expenses of their Chapter 11 estates and
be paid in the ordinary course of business without further
application to or order of the Court.

Prior to the Petition Date, the Debtors provided Prime Clerk a
retainer in the amount of $25,000.  Prime Clerk seeks to first
apply the retainer to all prepetition invoices, and thereafter, to
have the retainer replenished to the original retainer amount, and
thereafter, to hold the retainer under the Engagement Agreement
during these Cases as security for the payment of fees and expenses
incurred under the Engagement Agreement.

The Debtors have agreed to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless
Prime Clerk and its members, officers, employees, representatives,
and agents under certain circumstances specified in the Engagement
Agreement, except in circumstances resulting solely from Prime
Clerk's gross negligence or willful misconduct or as otherwise
provided in the Engagement Agreement or the Retention Order.

Prime Clerk represents it is a "disinterested person" as that term
is defined in Section 101(14) of the Bankruptcy Code with respect
to the matters upon which it is engaged.

PACIFIC SUNWEAR: Meeting to Form Creditors' Panel Set for April 19
------------------------------------------------------------------
Andy Vara, Acting United States Trustee for Region 3, will hold an
organizational meeting on April 19, 2015, at 10:30 a.m. in the
bankruptcy case of Pacific Sunwear of California, Inc.

The meeting will be held at:

         The Double Tree Hotel
         700 King Street
         Wilmington, DE 19801

The sole purpose of the meeting will be to form a committee or
committees of unsecured creditors in the Debtors' case.

The organizational meeting is not the meeting of creditors pursuant
to Section 341 of the Bankruptcy Code.  A representative of the
Debtor, however, may attend the Organizational Meeting, and provide
background information regarding the bankruptcy cases.

To increase participation in the Chapter 11 proceeding, Section
1102 of the Bankruptcy Code requires that the United States Trustee
appoint a committee of unsecured creditors as soon as practicable.
The Committee ordinarily consists of the persons, willing to serve,
that hold the seven largest unsecured claims against the debtor of
the kinds represented on the committee.

Section 1103 of the Bankruptcy Code provides that the Committee may
consult with the debtor, investigate the debtor and its business
operations and participate in the formulation of a plan of
reorganization.  The Committee may also perform other services as
are in the interests of the unsecured creditors whom it represents.


PALMAZ SCIENTIFIC: Gets Interim Approval to Hire Gerbsman

PANDA TEMPLE: S&P Puts Project Finance's 'B' Rating on Watch Neg.
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services placed its 'B' project finance
rating on Panda Temple Power LLC on CreditWatch with negative
implications.  The recovery rating on this debt remains '2',
indicating expectations for substantial (70% to 90%; upper end of
the range) recovery if a default occurs.

"The CreditWatch placement reflects the ongoing challenges for
merchant generators in the ERCOT market; this has been the main
driver behind the project's inability to meet its covenants," said
Standard & Poor's credit analyst Michael Ferguson.  While this
plant has performed well operationally, it has not been able to
command power prices that are in line with S&P's expectations.  As
a result, its DSCRs have fallen well below 1.0x.  S&P believes that
these weak conditions will persist during the next two years as a
result of revised expectations about load growth and renewable
growth.  ERCOT has seen renewable penetration far exceed
expectations during the past two years, and S&P expects that there
will be no slowdown in production, especially with the extension of
key wind and solar tax credits.

The CreditWatch placement reflects ongoing weakness in the ERCOT
power market, which has led to DSCRs below 1.0x.  Based on this,
liquidity has weakened, and S&P expects that, upon more thorough
review, its assessment of the downside case could diminish below
the current level.  Additionally, while the lenders have granted a
waiver of DSCR covenants through the third quarter of 2016, S&P
notes that without a marked improvement in the power market, this
could continue to be an issue beyond that time frame.  The rating
could fall into the 'CCC' category if S&P believes that the current
liquidity issues, taken with weak financial performance, could lead
the project to default in less than two years.

PICO HOLDINGS: Activist Bloggers Criticize Hart Compensation
------------------------------------------------------------
By Geoffrey J. Bailey -- gjbaileypb@hotmail.com -- PICO Holdings,
Inc. (Nasdaq:PICO), based in La Jolla, Calif., is a diversified
holding company reporting recurring losses since 2008. PICO owns
57% of UCP, Inc. (NYSE:UCP), 100% of Vidler Water Company, Inc., a
securities portfolio and various interests in small businesses.
PICO has $664 million in assets and $434 million in shareholder
equity. Central Square Management LLC and River Road Asset
Management LLC collectively own more than 14% of PICO. Other
activists at http://ReformPICONow.com/have taken to the Internet
to advance the shareholder cause.

Activist bloggers issue a second scathing criticism of the
Compensation Plan recently awarded to Mr. Hart; this time they
focus on the Bonus Plan in particular. In a post entitled, "John
'The Juicer' Hart Compensation Plan Betrays PICO Shareholders --
Part II," the bloggers lay blame squarely on the PICO Compensation
Committee, comprised of Chairman Carlos Campbell, Michael Machado
and Eric Speron.

The bloggers explain, "The benefits of the Bonus Plan will inure to
Mr. Hart, PICO CFO Maxim Webb and PICO Chief Accountant John Perri,
whom collectively we call "The Three Profiteers." Proceeds from the
Bonus Plan will be divided 75% to Mr. Hart, 15% to Mr. Webb and 10%
to Mr. Perri. The Bonus Plan is extant until December 31, 2020."

The Bonus Plan rewards the named individuals to the extent that
assets are sold for more than accounting carrying value. The
bloggers disparage this aspect of the Bonus Plan, noting that many
of PICO's assets have already been written down. "We don't know if
Mr. Hart plays golf, but if he does, we assume he is a big fan of
the mulligan. Calculation of the Bonus Pool is essentially an asset
purchase mulligan, with the cost borne by PICO shareholders and the
benefits inured to the Three Profiteers."

The bloggers also despair that the Three Profiteers will be
substantially rewarded by the passage of time, via inflation. Many
of PICO's assets have been on the books for several years, and so
any premium above carrying value does not represent managerial
skill, but the inevitable forces of inflation. "Has the
Compensation Committee ever heard of adjusting for the time value
of money?"

The bloggers note that when compared with the S&P 500, PICO's
capital allocation looks even worse. The bloggers point to the
stock price chart in the PICO 10-K, which "indicates that a dollar
invested in the S&P 500 five years ago is worth $1.60 today.
Contrarily, the same dollar invested in PICO 5 years ago is worth
$0.30 cents. The variance is $1.30 ($1.60 - $.30 = $1.30)."

Shareholders are discouraged that Messrs. Campbell, Machado and
Speron did not include a high water mark. Mr. Hart's canola
crushing venture, Northstar Hallock, lost over $85 million of
shareholder capital, yet in the Bonus Plan calculations, such
losses are ignored. The bloggers wonder out loud, "How can Messrs.
Campbell, Machado and Speron award exorbitant bonuses to three
executive failures whom have destroyed far more shareholder capital
than they have created?"

The post concludes, "Messrs. Hart, Webb and Perri are executive
failures. PICO stock price conclusively attests to that. Messrs.
Campbell, Machado and Speron are Compensation Committee failures.
The Bonus Plan attests to that.

It is unfortunate for PICO shareholders that we have so much
executive and director failure in one place. Given the stock has
gone from $40 to $9 in 5 years, we should expect nothing less."


POST HOLDINGS: Egan-Jones Hikes Sr. Unsecured Rating to B From B-
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Egan-Jones Ratings Company raised the senior unsecured rating of
debt issued by Post Holdings Inc. to B from B- on March 3, 2016.

PREMIER GOLF: Court to Hold Status Conference April 27
------------------------------------------------------
The court overseeing Premier Golf Properties LP's Chapter 11 case
will consider setting a new deadline for filing the so-called
disclosure statement at a status conference to be held later this
month.

The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of California
will hold the status conference on April 27 at 3:00 p.m.

The court had previously ordered the company to file an outline of
its bankruptcy plan before April 1.  On March 24, Premier Golf
sought to extend the deadline to May 10 due to the likelihood of
the company's guarantor filing a bankruptcy case that could affect
the content of its plan.

Cottonwood Cajon ES, LLC, a secured creditor, had opposed the
extension, saying it was a delay tactic employed by a company that
couldn't find a source of funding for a bankruptcy plan that can
satisfy its claim in full.  

Cottonwood Cajon asserts a $16.4 million secured claim against the
company, court filings show.

Premier Golf filed a disclosure statement for its Chapter 11 plan
of reorganization on Oct. 9 last year, which proposed to get
outside funding through a development partner to pay its creditors
and enable the company to develop its real property.  

The restructuring plan proposed to cure all of Premier Golf's
defaults under a prior settlement agreement with Far East National
Bank and pay Cottonwood Cajon's claim in the amount required by
that agreement.

On Dec. 3, the bankruptcy court denied approval of the disclosure
statement and granted Premier Golf leave to file a revised
disclosure statement, according to court filings.

The bankruptcy court will also take up at the April 27 status
conference the motion of Premier Golf to reconsider its order,
issued on Feb. 19, that overruled the company's objection to
Cottonwood Cajon's secured claim.  

                  About Premier Golf Properties

Premier Golf Properties, LP, conducts business under the name
"Cottonwood Golf Club."  The golf course and related operations are
located at 3121 Willow Glen Drive in the East County area of San
Diego known as Rancho San Diego, in the southern-most part of El

The property consists of a total of 283 acres, through which the
Sweetwater River meanders from east to west, and it is
approximately two miles in length.

Premier Golf Properties first sought Chapter 11 protection (Bankr.
S.D. Cal. Case No. 11-07388) on May 2, 2011.  The Debtor and Far
East National Bank, in December 2013 reached a settlement pursuant
to which FENB agreed to reduce its claim to $8.5 million and extend
the final balance payoff of $8.5 million to March 2016.  In April
2014, the case was dismissed pursuant to a joint motion of the
Debtor and FENB.

Premier Golf Properties again filed a Chapter 11 bankruptcy
petition (Bankr. S.D. Cal. Case No. 15-01068) on Feb. 24, 2015. The
new petition was signed by Daryl Idler, the secretary of Premier
Golf Property Management Inc, general partner.

Premier Golf Properties LP disclosed $44,363,923 in assets and
$19,228,427 in liabilities as of the Chapter 11 filing.  The
secured creditor is Cottonwood Cajon ES, LLC, which purchased the
note issued to FENB.

Jack Fitzmaurice, Esq., at Fitzmaurice & Demergian, serves as
counsel in the new Chapter 11 case.

                     About Pressure Biosciences

Pressure BioSciences, Inc., headquartered in South Easton,
Massachusetts, holds 14 United States and 10 foreign patents
covering multiple applications of pressure cycling technology in
the life sciences field.

Pressure Biosciences reported a net loss applicable to common
shareholders of $6.25 million on $1.37 million of revenue for the
year ended Dec. 31, 2014, compared to a net loss applicable to
common shareholders of $5.24 million on $1.5 million of total
revenue for the year ended Dec. 31, 2013.

As of Sept. 30, 2015, the Company had $2.21 million in total
assets, $6.70 million in total liabilities and a total
stockholders' deficit of $4.49 million.

Marcum LLP, in Boston, Massachusetts, issued a "going concern"
qualification on the consolidated financial statements for the year
ended Dec. 31, 2014, noting that the Company has had recurring net
losses and continues to experience negative cash flows from
operations.  These conditions raise substantial doubt about the
Company's ability to continue as a going concern, the auditors
said.


PUERTO RICO: Rescue Bill Nears Completion in House Committee
------------------------------------------------------------
Mary Williams Walsh, writing for The New York Times' DealBook,
reported that legislative staff members in Washington were said to
be close on April 8 to completing a revised bill that would give
Puerto Rico extraordinary powers to wipe out debt under close
federal supervision.

According to the report, aides at the House Natural Resources
Committee, working through the spring recess, were still grappling
with sensitive constitutional issues raised by the rescue package,
even after lawmakers in San Juan took matters into their own hands
on April 6 suddenly authorizing a unilateral debt moratorium for
the island.

The Puerto Rican lawmakers told the DealBook they were forced to
act because Congress was taking too long.  Their island's
Government Development Bank has a debt payment of about $422
million due May 1, and only $562 million in available cash; the law
they enacted would let the bank delay the payment lawfully -- at
least as far as Puerto Rico is concerned, the report related.
Puerto Rico owes even bigger debt payments, totaling about $2
billion, on July 1, the report noted.


QEP RESOURCES: Fitch Assigns 'BB' IDR, Outlook Stable
-----------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has assigned a Long-term Issuer Default Rating of
'BB' to QEP Resources, Inc. (NYSE:QEP).

The Rating Outlook is Stable.

Approximately $2.2 billion in debt is affected by the rating
action.

QEP's ratings reflect the company's strong upstream metrics,
adequate liquidity, and limited near term maturities, while
concerns include the company's relatively small production base and
a potential loss of operational momentum associated with capex
reductions.  QEP has taken several steps to manage leverage and
liquidity.  The company has reduced its capital budget from $1.2
billion in 2015, which included approximately $100 million of
acquisition capital, to guidance of $450 - $500 million in 2016, as
well as raising equity with gross proceeds of $379.5 million in
2016.  QEP's upstream metrics are consistent with higher rated
North American E&P peers but the rating is currently constrained by
the company's limited size and scale.

The company reported production of 149 mboe/d for year-end 2015
spread across five core operating areas within the U.S.  The
largest production percentage growth came in the company's Permian
and Williston basins, which accounted for 8% and 34% of 2015
production, respectively.  The Haynesville and Midcontinent basins,
representing 13% and 1% of production respectively, reported year
over year declines.  Capex for 2016 is estimated by Fitch to be at
the low end of guidance of $450 million, funding plans to operate
three rigs with one each in the Williston, Permian, and Pinedale.
The company's total production growth has remained relatively flat
since 2012 (CAGR 0.8%), but the company has high graded its profile
by transitioning to liquids (oil and NGLs) over the same time frame
through acquisitions and subsequent development activity.  At
year-end 2015, liquids comprised 45% of production, versus 22% in
2012.

                       KEY RATING DRIVERS

STRONG UPSTREAM METRICS

QEP has historically had strong operational metrics.  The
Fitch-calculated debt/ flowing barrel has continued to improve over
the last four years dropping from a high of $22,023 in 2012 to
$14,868 in 2015 as the company has reduced debt that was used to
fund previous acquisitions.  Fitch's base case forecasts debt/
flowing barrel to be about $14,000 in 2016.  Proved reserves were
603 mmboe in 2015 resulting in a proved reserve life of 11 years.
The three-year average organic reserve replacement ratio was 83% in
2015, down from 114% in 2014.  The company reported negative
revisions of 180 mmboe, of which 126 mmboe was due to lower pricing
in 2015.  A majority of revisions were PUDs.  QEP reported strong
operating reserve additions of 185 mmboe in 2015 mostly in the
Williston, Unita and Permian basins.  Debt/1P and Debt/PD increased
slightly in 2015 to $3.68/boe and $6.31/boe respectively due to a
decline in proved reserves as revisions largely offset extensions
and discoveries.

QEP has continued to increase oil production and in 2015, 36% of
equivalent production was oil, up significantly from 8% in 2011.
The company's acquisition of additional Williston acreage in 2012
and entry into the Permian basin in 2014 has helped drive the
liquids transition.

                         ADEQUATE LIQUIDITY

At year-end 2015, QEP had $376 million in cash and an undrawn
$1.8 billion credit facility that matures in December 2019.  The
credit facility is unsecured and is not subject to semi-annual
borrowing base redeterminations.  Currently, the financial
covenants, as defined in the credit facility agreement, require QEP
to maintain a 60% net debt to capitalization ratio (36% at year-end
2015), net debt to LTM EBITDA of not more than 4.25x through 2017
and 3.75x thereafter, and a PV-9 net debt coverage test of 1.25x
through 2017 and 1.50x thereafter.  The debt to cap ratio does not
have a carve-out for non-cash impairments but Fitch believes this
will not be a concern.  QEP may not have full availability of the
$1.8 billion revolver at year end 2016 because of the 4.25x net
debt covenant but liquidity is expected to be adequate.  Fitch
projects that the company will be slightly FCF positive for 2016
and will end the year with a cash balance of around $600 million.

On Feb. 29, 2016, the company raised approximately $330 million
through an upsized stock offering and on Mar. 8, 2016, the
underwriters exercised their option to purchase additional shares,
increasing the total gross proceeds received by the company in
connection with the offering to $379.5 million.  The proceeds will
be used to create additional bridge liquidity as well as prefund
the upcoming $176.8 million maturity in September of 2016.

                   LIMITED NEAR TERM MATURITIES

QEP's maturity wall is manageable. $176.8 million is due in
September 2016, $134.0 million in 2018 and $136.0 million in 2020,
providing the company the opportunity to de-lever as the debt
matures.  The company ended 2015 with $2.2 billion in debt,
unchanged from 2014 year-end.  QEP plans to use part of the equity
proceeds to prefund the 2016 maturity.  Given the company's
adequate liquidity and intent to spend within cash flow, there will
likely be limited need to access the capital markets.

FLAT PRODUCTION PROFILE

Since 2012, production has consistently remained between 141 mboe/d
and 149 mboe/d.  Fitch forecasts production declines of around 2%
in 2016 and 4% in 2017 and relatively flat production afterwards.
While the company has acquired several properties in the Williston
and Permian basins, their asset base is still relatively small
compared to E&P peers.  QEP plans to operate around three rigs for
the remainder of 2016 with one each in the Williston, Permian, and
Pinedale.  The current drilling plan is reduced significantly from
a high of 21 operated rigs during 2014, which should help the
company to maintain cash flow neutrality but will also slow
operational momentum.

                     SOLID 2016 HEDGE POSITION

At Dec. 31, 2015, assuming forecasted 2016 annual production of
approximately 146 mboe/d, QEP had approximately 51% of its
production covered with fixed-price swaps, including 73% of its gas
production at $2.65 and 33% of its oil production at $55.84. The
company entered into additional oil and gas derivative contracts in
early 2016 with a focus on 2017 gas hedges.

Currently, approximately 52% of 2017 gas production is hedged at
$2.70 and 15% of 2017 oil production is hedged at $54.39. Typically
QEP enters into commodity derivative contracts for approximately
50% to 75% of its forecasted annual production by the end of the
first quarter of each fiscal year.  At Fitch's base case price deck
of $35 oil in 2016 and $45 in 2017, Fitch forecasts that the
company's hedges will provide uplift of approximately $206 million
and $42 million in 2016 and 2017 respectively.

                         KEY ASSUMPTIONS

Fitch's key assumptions within the rating case for QEP include:

   -- WTI oil price that trends up from $35/bbl in 2016, $45/bbl
      in 2017, $55/bbl in 2018 to $65/bbl long term;

   -- Henry Hub gas price that trends up from $2.25/mcf in 2016,
      $2.50/mcf in 2017, $2.75/mcf in 2018 to $3.25/mcf long term;

   -- Production of approximately 146 mboe/d in 2016, followed by
      a modest decline in 2017;

   -- Capex in 2016 at the low end of guidance of $450 million,
      followed by increasing capex driven by supportive pricing
      signals.

RATING SENSITIVITIES

Positive: Future developments that may, individually or
collectively, lead to positive rating action include:

For an upgrade to 'BB+':

   -- Increased production size and scale in key production
      basins;
   -- Mid-cycle debt/EBITDA at or below 3.0x - 3.25x;
   -- Debt/flowing barrel under $15,000 and or debt/1P below
      $5.00/boe on a sustained basis;

Fitch does not anticipate a positive rating action in the near term
given the current weak pricing environment.

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

For a downgrade to 'BB-':

   -- Mid-cycle debt/EBITDA at or above 4.0x - 4.25x

   -- Mid-cycle debt/flowing barrel above $20,000 and or debt/1P
      above $7.00/boe;

   -- Leveraging acquisitions and/or shareholder-friendly actions.


                    FULL LIST OF RATING ACTIONS

Fitch has assigned these ratings:

QEP Resources, Inc.

   -- Long-term IDR at 'BB';
   -- Senior unsecured bank facility at 'BB'/RR4;
   -- Senior unsecured notes at 'BB'/RR4.

The Rating Outlook is Stable.

QUEEN ELIZABETH: Gets Court Approval for $16.3-Mil. Exit Loan
-------------------------------------------------------------
Queen Elizabeth Realty Corp. received court approval to increase
the amount of its exit loan to $16.25 million.

The order, issued by U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Stuart Bernstein,
allowed the company to borrow $16.25 million, up from $15.5 million
initially approved by the judge on January 26.

The company will get the loan from 68 Elizabeth Street 1 LLC, court
filings show.

The company had said the requested increase will not modify the
terms of its Chapter 11 plan of reorganization, which was approved
earlier this year.

Dean Fong, the receiver of the property of Phillip Wu, had earlier
expressed concern that any changes to the financing sought by the
company would affect the terms of the restructuring plan.

Separately, Judge Bernstein approved an agreement, which provided
for the payment of $306,000 fee to Shanghai Commercial Bank in
exchange for the assignment of certain loan documents to a
third-party on the effective date of the restructuring plan.

The bank is a mortgagee of the company with respect to the real
property located at 66/82 Elizabeth Street, Commercial Unit, New
York.

total liabilities in its Schedules.

Jonathan S. Pasternak, Esq., at Delbello Donnellan Weingarten Wise
& Wiederkehr, LLP, serves as the Debtor's counsel.

On Aug. 8, 2013, Margaret Wu filed a motion to dismiss the case.
On Sept. 18, 2013, receiver Dean K. Fong, Esq., filed a motion to
dismiss the case or in the alternative, excuse the receiver from
turnover requirements.  The Court denied the motions to dismiss
from the bench at a hearing on Oct. 31, 2013.

The Debtor has commenced an adversary proceeding, Adv. Pro. No.
13-01386, against the receiver and Margaret Wu, seeking, among
other things, declaratory judgment clarifying the ownership
interests of the Debtor, and turnover of the property from the

REPUBLIC AIRWAYS: Needs Until May 26 to File Scheedules
-------------------------------------------------------
Republic Airways Holdings Inc., and certain of its wholly-owned
subsidiaries ask the U.S. Bankruptcy Court to further extend their
deadline to file schedules of assets and liabilities and statements
of financial affairs by an additional 45 days, through May 26,
2016.

Despite the 30-day extension or April 11, 2016 deadline granted by
the Court, the Debtors assert that they need additional time to
prepare and file their Schedules because of the vast amount of
information that they must assemble and compile and the number of
employee and professional hours required to complete the Schedules.
According to the Debtors, they operate a complex business and have
thousands of potential creditors where its nature and scope of
operations require the Debtors to maintain voluminous records.

As of Jan. 31, 2016, on a consolidated basis, Republic had assets

respectively.

REPUBLIC AIRWAYS: Seeks to Obtain $75-Mil. DIP Loan from Delta
--------------------------------------------------------------
Republic Airways Holdings Inc. and its debtor affiliates seek
authority from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court to obtain postpetition
financing up to an aggregate principal amount of $75 million from
Delta Air Lines, Inc., as DIP Lender.

The Debtors ask the Court to grant the DIP Lender first priority
liens on one Embraer E170 regional jet aircraft, equipped with two
General Electric CF34-8 engines, 10 CFM34-8 engines, and all other
unencumbered assets of the Debtors, subject to the Carve-Out, and
grant a first priority priming lien on 15 specified individual
LaGuardia Airport arrival and departure slots, and grant junior
liens on all tangible and intangible property of the Debtors that
is subject to valid, perfected and unavoidable liens in existence
on the Petition Date.

The Debtors also ask that the Court grant superpriority
administrative expense claims to Delta, subject to the Carve-Out,
and modification of the automatic stay to the extent necessary to
implement and effectuate the terms and provisions of the DIP Term
Sheet and the DIP Order, and further allow Delta an unsecured claim
in the amount of $170 million not subject to objection,
subordination or other challenge.

The Debtors agree to pay to the DIP Lender an upfront fee in an
amount equal to 1.0% of the commitment and a commitment fee in an
amount equal to 1.0% per annum on the undrawn portion of the
committed amount of the financing, calculated and paid monthly in
arrears.  The interest rate is 5.75% per annum, paid monthly in
arrears, subject to a 2.00% increase during the continuation of an
Event of Default.

A hearing will be held on April 14, 2016, to consider approval of
the Delta DIP Motion.

An Ad Hoc Committee of Equity Holders, however, asks the Court to
adjourn the hearing date and objection deadlines because the
Debtors filed the Motion without any advance discussion with the Ad
Hoc Committee or its professionals, and the Debtors did not provide
the Ad Hoc Committee professionals with copies of the operative
documents until March 28, 2016.  The process, according to the Ad
Hoc Committee, appears to have been staged to deny stakeholders a
fair and meaningful opportunity to evaluate the relief sought.   

The Ad Hoc Committee asserts that it should be afforded a
reasonable opportunity to review and understand the process
resulting in the Debtors determination to select the Delta proposed
financing, especially since the DIP Financing Motion does not cite
any business exigency requiring access to post-petition financing
by April 14 and the Debtors have continued access to unrestricted
cash, which the Debtors' has reported to be approximately $132
million as of the petition date.  The Ad Hoc Committee also asserts
that the requested adjournment will afford U.S. Trustee's Office
time to consider and promptly act upon requests submitted for the
formation an official equity committee.

RICE ENERGY: Moody's Confirms B2 Corporate Family Rating
--------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service confirmed Rice Energy Inc.'s B2 Corporate
Family Rating (CFR); B2-PD Probability of Default Rating, B3 senior
unsecured note rating, and affirmed the SGL-2 Speculative Grade
Liquidity Rating. The rating outlook is stable.

"Rice's rating confirmation and stable outlook reflect the
company's continued strong growth in production and proved
developed reserves, which we expect will continue through 2017,
supported by a good liquidity profile," commented Gretchen French,
Moody's Vice President.

Issuer: Rice Energy Inc.

Ratings Confirmed:

Corporate Family Rating at B2

Probability of Default Rating at B2-PD

-- Senior Unsecured Regular Bond/Debenture at B3 (LGD 5)

Ratings Affirmed:

-- Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating at SGL-2

Outlook Action:

-- Outlook, Stable from under review

RATINGS RATIONALE

Rice's B2 CFR benefits from the company's low cost, early entry
position in the Marcellus Shale, where it has established a
favorable acreage position and valuable midstream business.
However, the company faces several years of outspending cash flow
as it further develops and holds its acreage positions in both the
Marcellus and still early stage Utica Shale, and continues to
expand its midstream business, which entails both execution risk
and the need to maintain strong access to funding sources. Rice has
demonstrated strong drilling and operating performance relative to
peers, both of which support continued, visible production and cash
flow growth potential. In addition, the company has proven its
willingness to use equity and equity-like financing to finance
acreage acquisitions and midstream development.

Rice's rating continues to be constrained by the company's
improving but still fairly early stage operating history compared
to higher rated exploration and production (E&P) peers, with an
overall high portfolio decline rate and concentrated production
profile. In addition, the company has a high level of structural
and financial complexity, with a midstream master limited
partnership (MLP) and retained midstream business, both of which
have their own financing and capital needs, are in early stage
operations, and entail the expectation of increasing distributions,
which could constrain Rice's consolidated retained cash flow/debt
metrics.

The B3 rating on Rice's senior unsecured notes reflects both Rice's
overall probability of default, to which Moody's assigns a PDR of
B2-PD, and a loss given default of LGD 5. The size of the potential
senior secured claims relative to the unsecured notes outstanding
results in the senior notes being notched one rating below the B2
CFR under Moody's Loss Given Default Methodology. The senior notes
benefit from upstream guarantees from all subsidiaries except for
its midstream subsidiaries. The notes are unsecured and
contractually subordinated to the senior secured credit facility's
potential priority claim to the company's assets.

Rice's SGL-2 Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating reflects good
liquidity through early 2017. Constraining Rice's liquidity profile
is its high level of capital spending, as Rice will outspend
internally generated cash flow through at least 2017. This will
deplete its cash balances and increase its reliance on its
revolvers to fund project based capital expenditures, as well as
provide for growing letters of credit needs for its firm
transportation contracts. Supporting Rice's liquidity profile are
strong sources of capital, with good revolver availability across
the consolidated company, high pro forma consolidated cash balances
with the benefit of the $375 million in preferred equity proceeds
in February 2016, good projected covenant compliance, and
alternative liquidity provided by its midstream business.

An upgrade could be considered if Rice successfully grows
production at sound returns while also maintaining adequate
liquidity and retained cash flow/debt of at least 20%.

A downgrade is possible if retained cash flow/debt falls below 10%
or liquidity tightens.



RICHMOND COUNTY CAPITAL: Fitch Affirms BB- Preferred Stock Rating
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed the ratings for New York Community
Bancorp, Inc. (NYCB) at 'BBB+/F2'.  The Rating Outlook remains
Stable.

Fitch reviewed NYCB as part of its U.S. Niche Real Estate Bank Peer
Review, which also includes Astoria Financial Corporation, Inc.
(AF), Dime Community Bancshares, Inc. and Emigrant Bancorp Inc.

While the business models of the U.S. Niche Real Estate Banks vary,
these banks are generally characterized by their limited deposit
franchises and geographic concentrations when compared to larger
U.S. banks.  Fitch views these limitations as ratings constraints
across the peer group.  The group is composed of banks with total
assets ranging from approximately $5 billion to approximately $50
billion that lend primarily in the New York City metropolitan
residential real estate market.

          KEY RATING DRIVERS - IDRs, VRs, AND SENIOR DEBT

NYCB's ratings primarily reflect the bank's consistent performance.
The bank has exhibited strong asset quality with low credit losses
over many business cycles.  Ratings are further supported by stable
earnings during the most recent financial crisis and other real
estate downturns.  These strengths are partially offset by NYCB's
relatively higher reliance on wholesale funding, weaker liquidity
profile and a concentrated loan portfolio.

On Nov. 3, 2015, Fitch reviewed and affirmed NYCB's ratings
following the announcement of the potential merger with AF.  Fitch
believes integration risks associated with the pending transaction
are relatively low given AF's relatively simplistic business model,
solid credit performance and the common footprint.  Fitch further
expects the transaction to be accretive to NYCB's earnings, capital
and franchise and will strengthen the residential mortgage lending
business.

The merger also provides NYCB the opportunity to diversify its loan
portfolio that is concentrated in multifamily loans.  As of Dec.
31, 2015, NYCB's multifamily loans consisted of 68% of the total
loan portfolio or 740% of tangible capital.  Fitch believes this
concentration is also offset by NYCB's niche expertise and track
record in multifamily lending in the New York City metropolitan
region.

Fitch views NYCB's asset quality as the company's primary rating
strength.  NYCB's net charge-offs peaked at 35bps in 2011 and in
2015 recoveries exceeded charge-offs.  Fitch expects asset quality
to remain strong due to the company's conservative underwriting
practices across its multifamily, commercial real estate and
residential loan portfolios.

On a risk-adjusted basis, Fitch considers earnings performance to
be reasonable.  While refinancing charges related to wholesale
funding resulted in a net loss position for 2015, Fitch believes
the benefits from a more permanent and lower cost funding profile
will offset this once-off expenditure over the long run.  Adjusting
for the $546.8 million after-tax charge from the refinancing, the
ROA was relatively flat year-over year.  NYCB's liability sensitive
balance sheet will expose it to earnings headwinds over the coming
years if interest rates normalize.

Fitch views NYCB's capital position as reasonable relative to the
overall risk profile.  Successful execution of a planned capital
raise provided net proceeds of $630 million in the fourth quarter
of 2015.  The Astoria merger is also expected to be accretive to
capital.  Fitch notes however that the dividend pay-out ratio
remained flat at around 90% of adjusted net income in 2015.  This
pay-out ratio is not sustainable over the long run given the
company's growth aspirations and current levels of internal capital
generation.  However, NYCB reduced earnings distributions in the
first quarter of 2016 to $0.17 per share from $0.25 per share in
the previous quarter and expects that NYCB will maintain its
risk-based capital ratios at relatively stable levels over the near
term and through the merger process.

NYCB will likely cross the $50 billion threshold in 2016 and would
be considered a D-SIB bank by regulators.  Preparations for this
transition have been underway for some time, and Fitch expects the
merger to provide additional scale to absorb the compliance related
costs.  Assuming that the pending merger with AF closes in the
fourth quarter, NYCB will be part of the 2018 CCAR process.

NYCB's liquidity profile is ratings constraint.  The company is
relatively more reliant on non-core funding sources, such as FHLB
advances and repurchase agreements, than other depositories.  In
2015, average borrowings totalled 33% of total liabilities.  Since
NYCB has relatively higher reliance on wholesale funding, the
company can be vulnerable to disruptions in the wholesale markets
and also carries a higher cost of funds.

The Stable Outlook assumes that asset quality will remain strong
and capital levels will remain relatively stable over the near
term.  The Outlook also incorporates that earnings could face
headwinds in 2016 from lower prepayment revenue.  Spread income may
also come under pressure given NYCB's liability sensitive balance
sheet, and presumably higher interest rates over the near to
intermediate term.

KEY RATING DRIVERS - SUPPORT RATING AND SUPPORT RATING FLOOR
NYCB's Support Rating and Support Rating Floor of '5' and 'NF'
reflect Fitch's view that the company is unlikely to procure
extraordinary support should such support be needed.

KEY RATING DRIVERS - SUBORDINATED DEBT AND OTHER HYBRID SECURITIES
NYCB's preferred issuances are notched below NYCB's Viability
Rating (VR).  The notch differential reflects loss severity and an
assessment of incremental non-performance risk.

KEY RATING DRIVERS - HOLDING COMPANY
NYCB's IDR and VR are equalized with those of its bank subsidiaries
reflecting its role as the bank holding company, which is mandated
in the U.S. to act as a source of strength for its bank
subsidiaries.

KEY RATING DRIVERS - LONG- AND SHORT-TERM DEPOSIT RATINGS
NYCB's uninsured deposit ratings are rated one notch higher than
the company's IDR and senior unsecured debt because U.S. uninsured
deposits benefit from depositor preference.  Fitch believes U.S.
depositor preference gives deposit liabilities superior recovery
prospects in the event of default.

          RATING SENSITIVITIES- IDRS, VRS, AND SENIOR DEBT

NYCB's ratings are solidly situated at its current levels.  Fitch
foresees limited upside given the more limited business model of
the company.  The deposit franchise and broker originated business
are relatively weaker than similarly sized, rated banks.
Conversely, NYCB's ratings are sensitive to the multifamily market
in the New York City area.  Material loosening of rent-regulations
in the New York area could be a negative rating driver for the
institution since rent regulations help maintain stable cash flows
and valuations for multifamily properties in New York.

The affirmation is based on the assumption that regulators will
approve the merger with AF and that NYCB's projected figures for
the transaction will materialize.  Should operational or
integration challenges arise, which lead to changes in our base
assumption, negative ratings pressure could develop.

Incorporated in the affirmation is the assumption that NYCB will
successfully complete the CCAR process and reach compliance with
the regulatory requirements associated with being a D-SIB bank.
Negative changes to this assumption could pressure the rating.

Although seen as unlikely given past performance, material
deterioration of asset quality metrics could result in negative
ratings pressure.  Aggressive capital management would also be
viewed negatively.  NYCB's tangible common equity ratio of 7.3% is
on the lower end compared to its rating category.

RATING SENSITIVITIES - SUPPORT RATING AND SUPPORT RATING FLOOR
NYCB's Support Rating and Support Rating Floor are sensitive to
Fitch's assumption around capacity to procure extraordinary support
in case of need.

RATING SENSITIVITIES - SUBORDINATED DEBT AND OTHER HYBRID
SECURITIES
NYCB's preferred issuances are sensitive to changes in NYCB's VR.
The rating sensitivities for the VR are listed above.

RATING SENSITIVITIES - HOLDING COMPANY
Should NYCB begin to exhibit signs of weakness, demonstrate trouble
accessing the capital markets, or have inadequate cash flow
coverage to meet near-term obligations, there is the potential that
Fitch could notch the holding company's IDR and VR below the
ratings of its bank subsidiaries.

Fitch has affirmed these ratings:

New York Community Bancorp
   -- Long-term IDR at 'BBB+';
   -- Viability rating at 'bbb+';
   -- Short-term IDR at 'F2';
   -- Support at '5';
   -- Support floor at 'NF'.

New York Community Bank
   -- Long-term IDR at 'BBB+';
   -- Long-term deposits at 'A-';
   -- Viability rating at 'bbb+';
   -- Short-term IDR at 'F2';
   -- Support at '5';
   -- Support floor at 'NF';
   -- Short-term deposits at 'F2'.

New York Commercial Bank

RITE AID: Reports Fiscal 2016 Q4 and Full Year Results
------------------------------------------------------
Rite Aid Corporation reported net income of $65.6 million on $8.27
billion of revenues for the 13 weeks ended Feb. 27, 2016, compared
to net income of $1.83 billion on $6.84 billion of revenues for the
13 weeks ended Feb. 28, 2015.

For the 52 weeks ended Feb. 27, 2016, Rite Aid reported net income
of $165 million on $30.7 billion of revenues compared to net income
of $2.10 billion on $26.5 billion of revenues for the 52 weeks
ended Feb. 28, 2015.

As of Feb. 27, 2016, Rite Aid had $11.3 billion in total assets,
$10.7 billion in total liabilities and $581 million in total
stockholders' equity.

"Our positive fourth-quarter results helped us deliver a successful
fiscal year that reflects the tremendous progress we're making to
expand our retail healthcare offering," said Rite Aid Chairman and
CEO John Standley.  "In the fourth quarter, we generated nearly $40
million of growth in Adjusted EBITDA, including an increase in our
Retail Pharmacy Segment and strong results from our new Pharmacy
Services Segment.  This was one of many key highlights of fiscal
2016, which was a transformational year that saw us acquire
EnvisionRx, launch the ground-breaking wellness+ with Plenti
program, complete our 2,000th Wellness store and exceed $30 billion
in revenues for the first time."

"We look forward to building upon this success and to continue
delivering a higher level of care in the communities we serve.  We
thank our dedicated Rite Aid associates for their hard work in
executing our strategy and providing an even better retail
healthcare experience for our customers.  We're also excited about
our opportunity to join forces with Walgreens Boots Alliance to
further expand consumer access to health care as part of the first
global, pharmacy-led health and wellbeing enterprise."

For the year, the company relocated 20 stores, acquired 6 stores,
remodeled 412 stores, expanded 2 stores, opened 5 stores, and
closed 20 stores.  The company also opened 23 clinics during the
fiscal year.

As previously announced on Oct. 27, 2015, Rite Aid and Walgreens
Boots Alliance, Inc. entered into a definitive agreement under
which WBA will acquire all outstanding shares of Rite Aid for $9.00
per share in cash, for a total enterprise value of approximately
$17.2 billion, including acquired net debt.  The board of directors
of both companies and Rite Aid's shareholders have approved the
transaction, which is subject to certain conditions, including,
among others, the receipt of approval under applicable antitrust
laws and other customary closing conditions. The transaction is
expected to close in the second half of calendar 2016.

Given the agreement with WBA, and as is customary for transactions
of this type, Rite Aid does not intend to provide earnings guidance
for fiscal 2017.

                       About Rite Aid Corp.

Rite Aid is a drugstore chain with 4,570 stores in 31 states and
the District of Columbia.

                           *     *     *

In March 2015, Moody's Investor Service confirmed its 'B2'
Corporate Family Rating of Rite Aid.  The confirmation reflects
Moody's expectation that Rite Aid will maintain debt to EBITDA
below 7.0 times after closing the acquisition of Envision
Pharmaceutical Holdings, Inc.

As reported by the TCR on Oct. 2, 2013, Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services said it raised its ratings on Rite Aid, including the
corporate credit rating, which S&P raised to 'B' from 'B-'.

In April 2014, Fitch Ratings upgraded its ratings on Rite Aid,
including its Issuer Default Rating to 'B' from 'B-'.  The upgrades
reflect the material improvement in the company's operating
performance, credit metrics and liquidity profile over the past 24
months.

SANJEL (USA) INC: Asks for Approval of C$50M DIP Financing
----------------------------------------------------------
PricewaterhouseCoopers Inc., as the monitor and the court-appointed
foreign representative of Sanjel (USA) Inc. and its debtor
affiliates, asked the Bankruptcy Court to authorize the Chapter 15
Debtors to borrow under a credit facility entered by Alberta
Treasury Branches, as agent, a group of lenders with Sanjel Corp.
as borrower and the remaining Chapter 15 Debtors as guarantors.

The Chapter 15 Debtors intend to use the proceeds of the
Post-Petition Facility to pay operational expenses, offices
expenses, professional fees and disbursements in connection with
the CCAA and Chapter 15 proceedings.

"Without the provision of interim and final lending during these
proceedings, the Chapter 15 Debtors would not be able to carry on
in business or attempt a restructuring, to the detriment of their
stakeholders," according to Deborah D. Williamson, Esq., at Dykema
Cox Smith, counsel for the Monitor.

As disclosed in Court documents, the Post-Petition Credit Agreement
provides for an initial maximum credit amount of C$50 million.
Borrowings under the Post-Petition Credit Facility bears an
interest rate of Canadian Prime, plus 6% for Canadian dollar
advances or U.S. Base Rate, plus 6% for U.S. Dollar advances.  The
Credit Facility has a maturity date of May 30, 2016.

The Chapter 15 Debtors seek to grant first priority, priming liens
on their assets in the United States as security for the
obligations under the Post-Petition Facility.

The Post-Petition Credit Agreement contains, among other things,

SANJEL (USA) INC: Files Temporary Restraining Order vs. Creditors
-----------------------------------------------------------------
PricewaterhouseCoopers Inc., as the monitor and as the
court-appointed and authorized foreign representative of Sanjel
(USA) Inc. and its debtor affiliates filed with the Bankruptcy
Court an emergency ex parte application for temporary restraining
order against creditors in order to protect the Debtors and their
assets in the United States.  The provisional relief requested is
similar to the stay relief already ordered by the Canadian Court.

The Chapter 15 Debtors are a group of Canadian owned or controlled
companies who on April 4, 2016, filed for restructuring under the
Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act.  The Court of Queen's Bench
of Alberta, Judicial Centre of Calgary has appointed the Monitor as
the foreign representative of the Chapter 15 Debtors.

According to Deborah D. Williamson, Esq., at Dykema Cox Smith,
counsel to the Monitor, emergency relief is necessary because a
meeting is currently scheduled for April 14, 2016, in regard to the
unsecured Senior Bonds at which the holders of the Senior Bonds
will be asked to vote on, among other things, instructing the
trustee for the Senior Bonds to immediately begin exercising
remedies against the Debtors.  In addition, a syndicate of 12
financial institutions led by Alberta Treasury Branches has sent an
enforcement notice to the Chapter 15 Debtors which, under Canadian
law, enables the Syndicate to begin enforcing remedies against the
Chapter 15 Debtors.

Ms. Williamson said that any action by creditors could have severe
detrimental effects on the Debtors, including a potentially
devastating effect on the sale process the Chapter 15 Debtors have
been actively pursuing and are in the process of completing.

As disclosed in Court documents, Sanjel Corp. failed to pay a
semi-annual interest of US$11.25 million on Dec. 19, 2015, under a
Bond Agreement dated June 18, 2014.  This non-payment of interest
was a default of the Bond Agreement and a cross-default under the
Bank Credit Agreement.  The Sanjel Group was also in breach of
certain financial covenants under the Bond Agreement.

SANJEL (USA) INC: Joint Administration of Cases Sought
------------------------------------------------------
PricewaterhouseCoopers Inc., as the monitor and the court-appointed
and authorized foreign representative of Sanjel (USA) Inc. and its
debtor affiliates, asked the Bankruptcy Court to enter an order
granting joint administration of the Debtors' Chapter 15 cases
under the Lead Case No. 16-50778.

"Joint administration will preserve estate assets and will avoid
considerable and unnecessary expense and loss of time by obviating
the necessity for filing duplicate motions, requesting duplicate
orders, and forwarding duplicate notices that affect one or all of
the Chapter 15 Debtors, their creditors, and parties in interest,"
said Deborah D. Williamson, Esq., at Dykema Cox Smith, counsel for
the Monitor.

"Joint administration will further ensure that parties affected by
each of the Cases will be apprised of the various matters that will
be heard by this Court in the Cases," she added.

According to the Monitor, the rights of the Chapter 15 Debtors'
respective creditors, stakeholders, and any other parties-in-
interest will not be adversely affected by joint administration of
the Cases because the relief requested is purely administrative and
in no way affects any party's substantive rights.

SBM DEEP: Fitch Ups Rating on $450MM Sec. Notes Due 2021 From BB
----------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has upgraded the rating of SBM Deep Panuke S.A.'s
(Deep Panuke or the issuer) $450 million senior secured notes due
2021 to 'BBB-' from 'BB'.  The Rating Outlook is Negative.

                        KEY RATING DRIVERS

Deep Panuke's rating reflects stable cash flow earned under a
charter contract with fixed lease payments from Encana Corporation
(Encana, rated 'BBB-' with a Negative Outlook by Fitch), whose
rating actively constrains the project rating.  The charter
contains achievable performance requirements, a pass-through of all
operational costs, and the lack of exposure to resource risk. The
debt structure is fully amortizing with a relatively short tenor of
seven years.

Revenue Risk: Midrange

Fixed Charter Contract: The charter contract with off-taker,
Encana, insulates the project's cash flow from volume and price
risk.  The performance requirement linked to charter termination is
not onerous and Fitch considers the possibility of
performance-related termination remote.  Fixed lease payments do
not fluctuate based on the Deep Panuke production field center's
(PFC or the project) operational performance, and revenue is not
based on throughput.

Cost Risk: Midrange

Full Recovery of Life Cycle Costs: The PFC's operational complexity
is mitigated by the involvement of parent SBM Offshore N.V. (SBM),
which has extensive experience in offshore production, and by the
full pass-through of all O&M and capital costs to Encana.  The
operations contract and useful life of the asset exceed the debt
term, providing long-term operational stability.

Debt Structure: Midrange

Typical Debt Structure: Deep Panuke's debt structure includes
conventional features.  The senior secured notes are scheduled to
fully amortize over a relatively short debt term and benefit from a
six-month debt service reserve account (DSRA).

Stable Financial Profile: Fixed charter revenues align with level
debt payments to create a flat debt service coverage ratio (DSCR)
profile that should allow for consistent financial performance over
the term of the notes.  Fitch expects debt service coverage to
average 1.26x, with a minimum of 1.26x.

SBM Credit Quality: Under the operating and charter contracts,
bankruptcy or insolvency of SBM gives Encana the right to terminate
these contracts without compensation to the project. Thus, a
reduction in the credit quality of SBM increases the likelihood
that the counterparty will acquire the termination option.  As
such, the project's rating is linked to the credit quality of SBM.

Peer Comparison: Deep Panuke is comparable to other
availability-based projects with fixed revenue payments and cost
pass-through provisions.  SteelRiver Transmission Company LLC
('A-'/Stable Outlook) and Synagro-Baltimore LLC ('BBB+'/Stable
Outlook) both benefit from stronger revenue counterparties and
higher rating case coverage.

RATING SENSITIVITIES
Positive/Negative - Counterparty Credit Quality: Deterioration or
improvement in the credit quality of off-taker Encana or operator
SBM could change the project rating.

Negative - Weak Operational Performance: Persistent weak
operational performance may suggest a higher likelihood of charter
contract termination.

                        SUMMARY OF CREDIT

Deep Panuke's upgrade reflects the rating of Encana, which was
assigned at 'BBB-' with a Negative Outlook on March 14, 2016.  As
the key revenue counterparty, Encana's credit quality constrains
the project rating.  Any rating change in Encana's rating would
lead to similar rating action for Deep Panuke.

The rating also reflects the strengthening credit quality of SBM,
the sponsor and guarantor of the issuer's performance obligations
under the charter.  SBM's credit quality has improved due to a
material reduction in leverage, the lifting of a ban on new
business with its main client Petroleo Brasileiro S.A. (Petrobras,
'BB+'/Negative Outlook), and increased certainty of potential

                      About SH 130 Concession

Headquartered in Buda, Texas, SH 130 Concession Company, LLC (the
"Concessionaire") was formed to finance, develop, design,
construct, operate, and maintain segments five and six of Texas
State Highway 130 (the "Tollway") in partnership with the Texas
Department of Transportation.

The Concessionaire, Zachry Toll Road - 56 LP and Cintra TX 56 LLC
filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy petitions (Bankr. W.D. Tex. Case Nos.
16-10262, 16-10263 and 16-10264, respectively) on March 2, 2016.
The petitions were signed by Alfonso Orol as chief executive
officer.  The Debtors estimated both assets and debts in the range
of $1 billion to $10 billion.

Toll Road - 56 and TX 56 are holding companies that collectively
hold the equity interests in the Concessionaire.  They have no
operations and have no creditors.

The Debtors have engaged Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP as general
counsel, Jackson Walker L.L.P. as local counsel, and Prime Clerk
LLC as notice, claims, solicitation, balloting and tabulation
agent.

Judge Tony M. Davis has been assigned the case.


SIMPLY FASHION: Case Conversion Hearing Continued to April 11
-------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Laurel M. Isicoff, of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Southern District of Florida continued to April 11, 2016, at 11:00
a.m., the hearing to consider motion to convert the Chapter 11
cases of Adinath Corp., et al., to those under Chapter 7 of the
Bankruptcy Code.

The Debtors filed an ore tenus motion to continue the March 21
hearing on the motion.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on March 25, 2016, the
Debtors explained that they have ceased operations and liquidated
substantially all of their assets.  Thus, the Debtors have no
operating business to rehabilitate and the Debtors believe that a
Chapter 7 trustee could oversee the collection of the remaining
assets in these estates.

In addition, JNS INVT does not intend to extend the Debtors' use of
cash collateral past Feb. 29, 2016.  In order to conserve the
remaining funds in the Debtors' estates, the Debtors believe that
conversion from chapter 11 to chapter 7 will inure to the benefit
of the Debtors' creditors and all other parties in interest in
these cases.  Under the particular facts of these cases, the
Debtors do not wish to become involved in a cash collateral fight
because the Debtors' liquidity does not justify doing so.

Equally important, the Debtors have sought to broker for months a
negotiated settlement between the Committee and the defendants in a
pending adversary proceeding.  The Debtors believe that a
reasonable settlement is possible, and compared with protracted
litigation, a settlement would be the best outcome for all of the
parties in interest in the Debtors' cases. Not only would a
settlement pave the way for a confirmable liquidating plan that
could provide a distribution on the allowed claims of the general
unsecured creditors, a settlement would also avoid the estates
being burdened with additional, significant administrative expenses
in the form of potentially hundreds of thousands of dollars in
additional legal and professional fees which may be incurred on the
part of the Committee in having to pursue the Adversary
Proceeding.

Unfortunately, the settlement negotiations between the Committee
and the defendants in the Adversary Proceeding have reached an
impasse which, in the Debtors' reasonable judgment, is
insurmountable.  As such, the Debtors submit that it would be in
the interests of all of the parties in the Debtors' cases to stop
the accrual of chapter 11 administrative expenses and permit a
chapter 7 trustee to be appointed as soon as possible to pursue the
estates' causes of action against the defendants in the Adversary
Proceeding, perhaps, on a contingency basis, as well as to pursue
the preference claims under Sec. 547 of the Bankruptcy Code against
the entities which received avoidable transfers.

SIONIX CORP: Kenneth Calligar Quits as Director
-----------------------------------------------
Kenneth W. Calligar has resigned, effective April 5, 2016, as a
director/member of the Board of Directors of Sionix, according to a
Form 8-K report filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

                       About Sionix Corp.

Los Angeles, Calif.-based Sionix Corporation designs, develops,
markets and sells cost-effective water management and treatment
solutions intended for use in the oil and gas, agriculture,
disaster relief, and municipal (both potable and wastewater)
markets.

Sionix incurred a net loss of $5.76 million for the year ended
Sept. 30, 2012, compared with a net loss of $6.30 million during
the prior year.  The Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2013,
showed $1.04 million in total assets, $7.62 million in total
liabilities and a $6.58 million total stockholders' deficit.

Kabani & Company, Inc., in Los Angeles, California, issued a
"going concern" qualification on the consolidated financial
statements for the year ended Sept. 30, 2012.  The independent
auditors noted that the Company has incurred cumulative losses of
$37,560,000.  In addition, the company has had negative cash flow
from operations for the years ended Sept. 30, 2012, of $2,568,383.
These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability
to continue as a going concern.


SIONIX CORP: Starts Initial Operations of Culbertson Facility
-------------------------------------------------------------
Sionix Corporation has entered into an agreement to fund the
design, engineering, construction and start-up of a brine and water
treating and reclamation facility located in Culbertson, Montana,
according to a Form 8-K report filed with the Securities and
Exchange Commission.  The Culbertson Facility is located in an area
that is within the Bakken Shale oil and gas formation.  The
principal purpose of the facility is to provide brine and water
treatment services to oil and gas operators working in the Bakken
in the states of Montana and North Dakota.

Steelworks Investments Limited, an affiliate of Sionix, provided
funding during the period commencing in mid 2015 through Feb. 4,
2016, for a total of $1,365,000.  These funds were used to provide
start-up expenditures for the Culbertson Facility and other Sionix
purposes.  Sionix agreed to repay the funds to SIL under the terms
of the Amended and Restated 12% Convertible Note in the amount of
$1,365,000, dated Feb. 4, 2016.  The SIL Note is convertible into
shares of Sionix Series A Convertible Preferred Stock at any time.
As of the date of April 5, 2016, if the SIL Note was fully
converted it would be convertible into 68,250 shares of Series A
Stock.  Each share of Series A Stock is convertible into 5,000
shares of Sionix Common Stock, or an aggregate of 341,250,000
shares if the entire SIL Note was fully converted into Series A
Stock and such Series A Stock was fully converted into Sionix
Common Stock.

Sionix does not have the authorized shares of Common Stock to
enable the conversion of the Series A Stock into Common Stock, but
intends to amend its Articles of Incorporation to do so as soon as
is practicable.

Sionix Oilfield Solutions was formed as a new entity to construct,
start-up and operate the Culbertson facility.  SOS is owned 51% by
Sionix, 39% by SIL and 10% by SOS employees.  SOS is the operating
entity and its operations are managed by Sionix personnel.  Sionix
entered into a License and Royalty Agreement with SOS providing for
SOS to utilize the Sionix technology in exchange for the 51% equity
interest and other considerations.

The real property and improvements included in the Culbertson
Facility were acquired by Steelworks Montana, LLC, an affiliate of
SIL.  The Culbertson Property has been leased to SOS by SWM under
the terms of a Lease dated July 13, 2015.  The Facility Lease
provides for SWM to lease the Culbertson Property for a period of 6
years.  No rent is payable for the first year of the Facility
Lease.  During the second year of the Facility Lease, rent is
payable at a rate of $25,000 per month.  Rent of $35,000 per month
is payable for the remaining 4-year duration of the Facility
Lease.

The terms and conditions of the Facility Lease are more favorable
to SOS than were offered in any previous negotiations with various
unaffiliated third parties.

The Culbertson Facility is logistically positioned to serve the
Bakken fields of Montana and North Dakota.  Its physical facilities
include heated tank storage, enclosed process and laboratory
buildings, on-site water wells, a 24 hour truck park with
facilities and convenient highway access at the junction of Montana
State Highway 16 and U.S. Highway 2.  The plant will supply fresh
and treated water to meet customer specifications for well
maintenance, drilling and reuse in fracking.

The operation will use Sionix's proprietary, patented Dissolved Air
Flotation technology in combination with flocculation, pH control,
chemistry, filtration and biocide processes to remediate and
recycle both flowback brines from fracking and produced water from
existing wells.  Sionix's technology has been licensed to SOS under
the terms of the Sionix License.  The Sionix License details the
terms, conditions and considerations of the license.  It also
requires maintenance by Sionix of a 51% equity interest in SOS. The
Sionix License also provides for Sionix to provide technical,
operating, financial and marketing oversight and direction to the
business.

SIL (Steelworks Investments Limited) currently holds 14,418,220
shares of Sionix Common Stock and also through its Member, Bernard
Brogan, serves on the Board of Directors of Sionix.  This holding
is a beneficial ownership estimated to be less than 3 percent of
the Company's Common Stock.  Prior to the current investment, SIL
also held various convertible notes and Series A Stock from earlier
investments in Sionix.  Conversion of all these holdings into
Common Stock, in the absence of any other shareholder conversions,
would result in SIL beneficial ownership estimated to be
approximately 45 percent of the issued and outstanding shares of
Sionix Common Stock.

By reason of the issuance of the SIL Note to SIL, under SEC rules,
SIL is deemed to have beneficially acquired an additional
341,250,000 shares of Sionix Common Stock.  This would result, in
the absence of any other shareholder conversions, in total
beneficial ownership estimated to be more than 50 percent of the
issued and outstanding shares of Sionix Common Stock.

Sionix has been attempting to acquire or otherwise develop or
utilize the Culbertson Facility since September of 2013.  Sionix
has made several attempts to acquire the Culbertson Facility with
various unaffiliated third parties, all of which were not
successful.  SIL was the only entity willing to enter into a
transaction with Sionix under acceptable financial terms and
conditions.

The Company has started initial operations of the Culbertson
facility.

SKYBRIDGE SPECTRUM: Receiver Seeks to Renew FCC Licenses
--------------------------------------------------------
Susan L. Uecker, as the court-appointed receiver of Skybridge
Spectrum Foundation, asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Delaware for entry of an order (1) granting relief from
the automatic stay, and (2) excusing the Receiver's compliance with
Section 543(a) of the Bankruptcy Code to allow the Receiver to file
renewal applications with the Federal Communications Commission and
pay associated filing fees for 352 Multiple Address System spectrum
licenses owned by the Debtor.

The Receiver seeks emergency relief to preserve valuable property
of the Debtor's estate, namely FCC licenses that will otherwise
expire, Eric D. Schwartz, Esq., at Morris, Nichols, Arsht & Tunnell
LLP, in Wilmington, Delaware -- eschwartz@mnat.com -- tells the
Court.

The Receiver proposes to file renewal and construction deadline
extension applications for those licenses and to use the Debtor's
funds that are part of the receivership estate to pay associated
FCC fees for those applications.

The Receiver submits that she has the power and authority to take
these actions under the state court order appointing her and under
the exception in Section 543(a) of the Bankruptcy Code, which
allows a custodian to take actions necessary to preserve property
of the estate.

The Receiver was appointed by a California state court to preserve
approximately 5500 FCC wireless spectrum licenses owned by a series
of affiliated entities, including the Debtor, all of which were
controlled by Warren Havens.  Havens and Dr. Arnold Leong are in a
dispute regarding the control, ownership and operation of those
entities that is currently the subject of arbitration proceedings.
The Receiver was appointed in part because of an April 2015 order
from an FCC administrative law judge calling into question Havens'
qualifications to hold any FCC licenses.  If the FCC ultimately
finds that Mr. Havens is not qualified to hold FCC licenses, all of
the licenses currently entrusted to the Receiver could be
extinguished.

The Receiver believes that it is in the interests of the Debtor's
estate as well as the Receivership that the Receiver (1) seek
renewals of both the Debtor's and the Receiver's MAS licenses, and
(2) that funds of the Debtor currently held by the Receiver as
receivership property be used to pay to the FCC approximately
$250,000 in renewal fees to preserve the MAS licenses.

petition (Bankr. D. Del. Case No. 16-10626) on March 11, 2016.

Distribution, the holders entitled to the unpaid Class B PIK Units
shall be entitled (i) to Class B Quarterly Distributions in
subsequent quarters on such unpaid Class B PIK Units and (ii) to
all other rights under the Partnership Agreement as if such unpaid

STEINWAY MUSICAL: Egan-Jones Gives No Rating Status on Unsec. Debt
------------------------------------------------------------------
Egan-Jones Ratings Company entered a No Rating (NR) status on
senior unsecured debt issued by Steinway Musical Instruments Inc.
from B+ on March 4, 2016.

Steinway Musical Instruments, Inc. is an American worldwide musical
instrument manufacturing conglomerate.



STERIGENICS-NORDION HOLDINGS: Moody's Rates $120MM Note Offering B1
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a B1 rating to
Sterigenics-Nordion Holdings, LLC's $120 million senior secured
note offering. Proceeds from the first lien notes will be used to
help fund the acquisition of Nelson Laboratories, Inc., a provider
of microbiology testing services, that closed on April 1, 2016, and
general corporate purposes.  Pro-forma for the transaction, Moody's
estimates adjusted debt to EBITDA was 6.9 times as of Dec. 31,
2015.

The new notes are pari-passu with the company's existing senior
secured first lien bank debt and are guaranteed by the parent firm
Sterigenics-Nordion Topco LLC and substantially all of the
company's direct and indirect wholly-owned U.S. subsidiaries.  All
other ratings, including the Sterigenics' Corporate Family Rating,
are unchanged.  The outlook is negative.

Ratings assigned:

Senior secured notes due 2022 at B1 (LGD 3)

RATINGS RATIONALE

The B2 Corporate Family rating is constrained by modest scale and
high business risks arising from Sterigenics' earnings
vulnerability to supply-chain disruptions.  Moody's expects the
company's financial leverage (debt/EBITDA) to remain in the high
6.0 times range and free cash flow to be modest over the next 12-18
months.  The rating is further constrained by event and
environmental risk associated with the highly sensitive nature of
the company's handling of hazardous raw materials in its
manufacturing process, including radioactive isotopes and toxic
gases.

The B2 rating is supported by Sterigenics' leading position in the
contract sterilization outsourcing market, as well as high barriers
to entry and customer switching costs, leading to stable market
share. Sterigenics' focus on medical device and food safety markets
also supports the rating as these markets are less sensitive to
economic cycles than markets for more discretionary use such as
capital goods. Around two-thirds of the company's EBITDA will be
generated by the contract sterilization business, which Moody's
expects to remain stable absent any disruptions from raw material
sourcing issues.

The negative rating outlook is driven by the uncertainties
surrounding the longer-term supply of key raw ingredient
Molybdenum-99, the disruption of which would have a negative impact
on the company's earnings and cash flow.

The ratings could be downgraded if leverage is not reduced to below
6.0 times or free cash flow is negative over the next 12-18 months.
A downgrade could also occur if the company loses a significant
customer, incurs a material adverse event which results in legal
liabilities or a business disruption, makes large debt-financed
acquisitions or dividend distributions, or suffers a significant
deterioration in liquidity.

Given its small size, high leverage and inherent business risks, an
upgrade is unlikely in the near term.  The ratings could be
upgraded if the company successfully develops alternative
Molybdenum-99 technology and demonstrates a commitment to more
conservative financial policies such that debt/EBITDA is sustained
below 4.0 times.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Business and
Consumer Service Industry published in December 2014.

Sterigenics-Nordion Holdings, LLC, headquartered in Oak Brook, IL,
is a vertically integrated global provider of contract
sterilization services, gamma technologies and medical isotopes.
The company offers contract sterilization services for the medical
device industry, and supplies Cobalt-60 to other companies for
contract sterilization and medical isotopes for healthcare
procedures.  Sterigenics operates 48 facilities across 13 countries
and serves over 2,500 customers worldwide.  The company generated
total revenue of $563 million in 2015.  Sterigenics is
majority-owned by private equity firm Warburg Pincus with a
minority interest held by GTCR.

of the subsequent two anniversaries of the date of grant; and (iii)
be eligible for an annual cash performance bonus of up to 50% of
base salary, subject to goals and objectives set by the chief
executive officer and Board of Directors of the Company.  Under the

The Employment Agreement also provides for certain severance
payments to Mr. Sammons in the event of his termination.  If Mr.

employment for "Good Reason" at any time during the six month
period following a change in control, he will be entitled to
receive continuation of his base salary for twelve months following
termination of his employment.  Under the Employment Agreement,
"Cause" is defined to include, without limitation, (i) Mr.

misappropriation by Mr. Sammons of the funds or property of the

following, without his consent and not cured within thirty days
after the Company's receipt of such notice, constitutes "Good
Reason" under the Employment Agreement: (i) Mr. Sammons suffers a
material adverse change in the duties, responsibilities or
effective authority associated with his titles and positions; or
(ii) a material reduction by the Company of Mr. Sammons's base
salary.

In addition to the compensation and severance arrangements, the
Employment Agreement contains customary provisions (i) prohibiting
Mr. Sammons from divulging to third parties or using confidential
information or trade secrets of the Company; (ii) confirming that
all intellectual work products generated by Mr. Sammons during the
term of his employment with the Company are the sole property of

anniversary of the termination of his employment.

a subsidiary of the Company, and Mr. Sammons.

                     About TechPrecision

TechPrecision Corporation (OTC BB: TPCSE), through its wholly owned
subsidiaries, Ranor, Inc., and Wuxi Critical Mechanical Components
Co., Ltd., globally manufactures large-scale, metal fabricated and
machined precision components and equipment.

TechPrecision reported a net loss of $3.58 million for the year
ended March 31, 2015, compared to a net loss of $7.09 million for
the year ended March 31, 2014.

Marcum LLP, in Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvania, issued a "going concern"
qualification on the consolidated financial statements for the year
ended March 31, 2015, citing that the Company has suffered
recurring losses from operations, and the Company's liquidity may
not be sufficient to meet its debt service requirements as they
come due over the next twelve months.  These circumstances raise
substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a
going concern.


TERRAFORM GLOBAL: S&P Puts 'B-' CCR on CreditWatch Negative
-----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services placed its 'B-' corporate credit
rating on TerraForm Global Inc. on CreditWatch with negative
implications.

In addition, S&P placed the 'B-' rating on TerraForm Global
Operating LLC's senior unsecured notes and 'B+' rating on its
revolving credit facility on CreditWatch with negative
implications.

The recovery rating on the unsecured notes remains '3', indicating
S&P's expectation for meaningful recovery (50% to 70%; upper half
of the range) of principal if a payment default occurs.  The
recovery rating on the revolver is '1', indicating expectations for
very high (90% to 100%) recovery if a payment.

"The CreditWatch placement reflects the recent failure of TerraForm
Global Inc. to file its annual 10-K statement with the SEC," said
Standard & Poor's credit analyst Michael Ferguson. Given its
current rating level, the company's inability to provide timely and
accurate financial statements is an issue because even modest
discrepancies in financial information could lead S&P to believe
that the actual credit quality is lower than currently anticipated,
and that liquidity could become constrained more immediately than
previously foreseen; the latter would call into question whether
the issuer should be rated in the 'CCC' category. While the company
would be entitled to a cure period, continued inability to file
financial statements would likely result in an event of default.

Additionally, the continuity of the management team after several
high profile resignations and replacements in recent months is
another consideration.  This, in conjunction with the reporting
deficiencies, leads S&P to reassess the management and governance
score as weak from fair.  S&P also notes that litigation with
SunEdison over ownership transfer on certain assets is ongoing, and
could jeopardize credit quality.

The CreditWatch placement is based on the company's delays in
filing its financial statements.  S&P will resolve the CreditWatch
placement once it receives sufficient information to update its
assessments regarding the company's liquidity and forecasted near
term credit metrics.



TERRAFORM POWER: S&P Puts 'B-' CCR on CreditWatch Negative
----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services placed its 'B-' corporate credit
rating on TerraForm Power Inc. on CreditWatch with negative
implications.

In addition, S&P placed the 'B-' corporate credit rating on
TerraForm Power Operating LLC and the 'B-' ratings on that entity's
senior unsecured notes on CreditWatch with negative implications.
The recovery rating on the notes remains '4' indicating
expectations for average (30% to 50%; upper half of the range)
recovery if a default occurs.

"The CreditWatch placement reflects the recent failure of TerraForm
Power Inc. to file its annual 10-K statement with the SEC, as well
as its disclosure that it is investigating internal control
challenges at its parent company, SunEdison Inc.," said Standard &
Poor's credit analyst Michael Ferguson.  Given its current rating
level, the company's possible inability to provide timely and
accurate financial statements is an issue, because even modest
discrepancies in financial information could lead S&P to believe
that the actual credit quality is lower than currently anticipated,
and that liquidity could become constrained more immediately than
previously foreseen.  While the company could be entitled to a cure
period, continued inability to file financial statements would
likely result in an event of default.

Additionally, S&P thinks the continuity of the management team
after several high profile resignations and replacements in recent
months is an important consideration; this, in conjunction with the
reporting deficiencies, leads S&P to reassess the management and
governance score as weak.

The CreditWatch placement is based on the company's delays in
filing its financial statements.  S&P will resolve the CreditWatch
placement once it receives sufficient information to update its
assessments regarding the company's liquidity and forecasted
near-term credit metrics.

the Company's Board of Directors, entered into change in control
severance agreements with Jeff Hawthorne, the Company's president

benefits that will be received in the event of a Covered
Termination.

As set forth in the Agreements, Mr. Hawthorn and Ms. Russell will
be employed on an at-will basis.  The Agreements provide for a
severance payment to each of the executives in the event of an
executive's dismissal or discharge for reasons other than Cause (as
defined in the Agreements) or as a result of death or disability,
or an executive's termination of employment for Good Reason, either
of which occurs during the period between the date when
negotiations for the change in control of the Company begins and
the date six months following the effective date of such change in
control of the Company.  Mr. Hawthorne and Ms. Russell may resign
for "Good Reason" in the event of a reduction in his or her base
salary of at least 10% (provided that it is not part of a general
salary reduction), a material demotion in position and job duties,
or a relocation by more than thirty-five driving miles from the
Company's current location.  Under the CEO Agreement, such
severance payment will be equal to two times Mr. Hawthorne's base
salary.  Under the Executive Agreement, Ms. Russell's severance
payment will be equal to Ms. Russell's base salary.  

In addition to such severance payments, each Agreement provides
that in the event of a Covered Termination, each executive receives
100% of such executive's unvested portion of his or her
then-outstanding equity awards and the Company will reimburse the
executive for health care costs for up to twelve months after such
termination.  All severance payments under the Agreements are
conditioned upon execution of a customary release and waiver with
the Company.

WHISKEY ONE: Seeks Sept. 30 Extension of Solicitation Period
------------------------------------------------------------
Whiskey One Eight, LLC, asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Maryland, for the second time, to extend the Debtor's
exclusive period to obtain acceptances to plan of reorganization
through September 30, 2016.

The Debtor's exclusive right to file a plan of reorganization
expired on February 10, 2016, and to obtain acceptances thereto
expired on April 10, 2016.

On February 10, 2016, the Debtor filed its Plan of Reorganization
pursuant to Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code within
the exclusive period it enjoyed for filing a plan.  The Plan calls
for the Debtor to reorganize with various sources of cash as the
means for its implementation, including proceeds from debtor in
possession financing that the Debtor intends to secure shortly.
The Debtor has not yet filed a disclosure statement, but intends to
do so as soon as it has Court-approved DIP financing in place,
Lawrence J. Yumkas, Esq., at Yumkas, Vidmar, Sweeney & Mulrenin,
LLC, in Columbia, Maryland -- lyumkas@yvslaw.com -- informs the
Court.

Mr. Yumkas contends that cause exists in this case to extend the
Acceptance Period through and including September 30, 2016,
because: (i) the additional time will afford the Debtor an
opportunity to finalize and obtain approval of debtor in possession
financing to fund its development, administrative expenses and
Plan; (ii) the extension will afford the Debtor time to file a
disclosure statement and obtain its approval over anticipated
objections; (iii) the time will permit the Debtor to continue with
the Court-ordered 2004 discovery and conduct 2004 examinations, as
permitted and appropriate; and, (iv); an extension will not
prejudice any party in interest and will enable the Debtor to
conserve its resources by not being forced to respond needlessly to
competing plans.

Granting the requested extension of the Acceptance Period will not
adversely affect the Debtor's creditors; in fact, an extension will
benefit the Debtor's creditors, Mr. Yumkas says.  He points out
that if the Debtor is granted additional time, the Debtor can
obtain Court approval to secure debtor in possession financing to
fund its development and to effectively reorganize.

                       FAIRMD Objects

FAIRMD, LLC, a secured creditor of the Debtor, asserts that this
single asset real estate debtor has been in bankruptcy for several
months, but it has yet to obtain debtor-in-possession financing
that would enable it to develop its sole asset.

"The Debtor filed a skeleton plan on the last day of the exclusive
period, rebuffed efforts to negotiate, and now asks for an
extension of six months to confirm its unconfirmable plan," Lisa
Bittle Tancredi, Esq., at Gebhardt & Smith LLP, in Baltimore,
Maryland -- ltancredi@gebmith.com -- tells the Court.  Meanwhile,
Ms. Tancredi asserts, the likelihood of the successful development
of the property diminishes.

Ms. Tancredi contends that the Court should permit the exclusive
period to expire, level the playing field, and allow creditors to
file their own plan and move the development forward.

                            *********

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.
