ADILACE HOLDINGS: Court Denies S. Sullivan's Bid to Intervene
-------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Tony M. Davis of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the
Western District of Texas, Austin Division, denied the Motion to
Intervene of Susan Sullivan finding that she does not need to
participate in the Motion to Set to protect her interests and
allowing her intervention would lead to additional expense and
possible delay.

The Trustee has filed a motion to set a deadline for a contract
counterparty -- Petitioning Creditor Grinberg Asset Holdings -- to
make an election under Section 365(n) of the Bankruptcy Code.
Grinberg objected, creating a contested matter. Susan Sullivan, a
creditor, seeks to intervene in this contested matter because she
thinks she knows better than the Trustee how to administer the
estate, and because she says the contested matter will affect her
separate state-court litigation with Grinberg in California.

ADVANCED BIOMEDICAL: Court Won't Rule Accounts Receivables Issue
----------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Mark S. Wallace of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the
Central District of California, Santa Ana Division, declined the
invitation of the United States of America on behalf of the IRS to
adjudicate the rights and priorities of Plaintiff Specialty
Laboratories Inc. and the IRS with respect to the Assigned
Receivables on the ground that such adjudication would in no way
affect the bankruptcy estate or its administration as the Assigned
Receivables are not property of Defendant-Debtor Advanced
Biomedical, Inc.'s bankruptcy estate.

The Plaintiff commenced this adversary proceeding seeking a
declaratory judgment that it is the owner of, and holds title to,
all or a portion of certain accounts receivable and proceeds
thereof scheduled by the Defendant.  The Defendant contends that it
is the owner of, and holds title to, all such personal property.
The Plaintiff has proven by a preponderance of the evidence that it
is the current owner of the Assigned Receivables and that it became
the owner of such property no later than September 25, 2014, the
date of entry of the Assignment Order.

A full-text copy of the Memorandum Decision and Order dated March
22, 2016 which is available at http://is.gd/IMedgnfrom

ADVANCED TECH: S&P Lowers Rating on 2028 Revenue Bonds to 'BB+'
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its long-term rating to
'BB+' from 'BBB-' on Advanced Tech Academy (ATA), Mich.'s series
2008 revenue bonds.  The outlook is stable.

"The downgrade reflects our view of ATA's consistently weak
liquidity position and reliance on the short-term borrowing of
state aid anticipation notes, flat enrollment despite expectations
of enrollment growth in fall 2015 leading to a decline in per pupil
funding, and limited demand flexibility," said Standard & Poor's
credit analyst Gauri Gupta.

The stable outlook reflects S&P's view that during the one-year
outlook period, ATA will maintain stable to growing enrollment,
produce positive operations on a full-accrual basis, and maintain
liquidity and maximum annual debt service coverage at or near
current levels.  S&P expects that ATA will continue to rely on
state anticipation notes for operations in the near term.

Initially chartered in 1999 by Lake Superior State University, ATA
is a public charter school located in Dearborn.  It is accredited
by AdvancED, formerly the North Central Association, and serves
approximately 1,350 students in prekindergarten through 12th
grade.



AF-SOUTHEAST LLC: Meeting to Form Creditors' Panel Set for May 5
----------------------------------------------------------------
Andy Vara, Acting United States Trustee for Region 3, will hold an
organizational meeting on May 5, 2016, at 1:00 p.m. in the
bankruptcy case of AF-Southeast, LLC, et al.

The meeting will be held at:

         J. Caleb Boggs Federal Building
         844 King St., Room 2112
         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.



ALERE INC: Said to Get Default Notice from Creditors
----------------------------------------------------
Sridhar Natarajan, writing for Bloomberg Brief, reported that Alere
Inc., the medical-testing supplier under federal scrutiny, received
a notice of default from a group of bondholders after the company
delayed filing its 2015 financial statement, according to people
with knowledge of the matter.

Alere, which agreed in February to be bought by Abbott Laboratories
for about $5.8 billion, hasn't disclosed a default notice through
regulatory filings, according to the report.  Some of the company's
senior lenders were told, over a private reporting system, of a
March 21 default notice, the people said, the report related.  They
were given the information this month while Alere was negotiating
for more time to file the annual financial report, Bloomberg said,
citing the people, who asked not to be identified because the
information was private.

While the notice itself wouldn't give lenders the right to
immediately demand repayment, the default claim adds to a turbulent
two months for the company, the report noted.  After announcing the
deal with Abbott on Feb. 1, it told investors four weeks later that
it was delaying its 10-K statement while it analyzed how it
recorded revenue in Africa and China, the report said.

Alere Inc. is a global diagnostic device and service provider. The
company was founded in 2001 and is headquartered in Waltham,
Massachusetts.

                     *     *     *

Egan-Jones Ratings Company raised the foreign currency senior
unsecured rating on debt issued by Alere Inc. to BB- from B+ on
April 12, 2016.

The Troubled Company Reporter, on Feb. 5, 2016, reported that
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it placed its 'B'
corporate credit rating on Alere Inc., and all existing issue-level
ratings on the company's debt, on CreditWatch with positive
implications.

"The rating action is in response to the announcement that the
company has accepted an acquisition offer by Abbott Laboratories
for $5.8 billion.  We expect Abbott to fund the transaction with
debt and to assume or refinance Alere's debt upon completion of
the
deal," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Maryna Kandrukhin

The Troubled Company Reporter, on Feb. 3, 2016, reported that
Moody's Investors Service placed the ratings of Alere, Inc. under
review for upgrade, including the company's B2 Corporate Family
Rating and B2-PD Probability of Default Rating.  Instrument ratings
placed under review for upgrade include those for the Ba3 senior
secured first lien credit facilities, B3 senior unsecured notes,
and Caa1 senior subordinated notes.  Moody's concurrently affirmed
Alere's speculative grade liquidity rating of SGL-1.  This action
follows the announcement that Alere has entered into a definitive
agreement to be acquired by Abbott Laboratories.  The transaction
is valued at approximately $8.4 billion to be funded with $5.8
billion in cash and the assumption of about $2.6 billion in net
debt.


ALIANTE GAMING: Boyd to Acquire Aliante Casino Hotel for $380MM
---------------------------------------------------------------
Boyd Gaming Corporation on April 21 disclosed that it has entered
into a definitive agreement to acquire ALST Casino Holdco, LLC, the
holding company of Aliante Casino Hotel and Spa, for total net cash
consideration of $380 million.

Opened in 2008 at a cost of more than $660 million, Aliante is an
upscale, resort-style casino and hotel offering premium
accommodations, gaming, dining, entertainment and retail.
Strategically located on the 215 Beltway within the master-planned
community of Aliante, the property is well-positioned to benefit
from future planned development throughout the city of North Las
Vegas.

"Aliante is an asset without rival in the North Las Vegas market,
strategically positioned to benefit from substantial future growth
across the northern part of the Las Vegas Valley," said Keith
Smith, President and Chief Executive Officer of Boyd Gaming.  "With
significant residential and industrial developments moving forward
in the area, Aliante's long-term potential is compelling.  In
addition, there are significant synergy opportunities at the
property, allowing us to immediately improve its operating and
financial performance.  This acquisition will further strengthen
and diversify our robust Las Vegas portfolio, the fastest-growing
segment of our business."

Aliante Chief Executive Officer Soohyung Kim said, "It has been an
honor to be part of the rebirth of Aliante Casino from a difficult
restructuring to this excellent outcome for all stakeholders.  We
recognize that it would not have been possible but for the
dedication of each and every team member, led by Terry Downey.
These efforts have resulted in Aliante becoming the leader in our
market.  We are confident that Boyd Gaming will take Aliante to the
next level and help it fulfill its ultimate potential.  The future
of North Las Vegas is brighter than ever, and we expect that
Aliante will continue to be mainstay of our community."

Aliante is the premier gaming asset in North Las Vegas, featuring
an 82,000-square-foot gaming floor and more than 200 luxury hotel
rooms and suites.  The property's upscale amenities include five
signature restaurants, an ultra-modern, 170-seat race and sports
book, a 16-screen movie theater complex, 14,000 square feet of
event and banquet space, a luxury spa and an expansive,
resort-style pool and outdoor lounge area.  Aliante is situated on
approximately 40 acres within the 1,905-acre Aliante master-planned
community, and is adjacent to an 18-hole championship golf course.

Aliante will be Boyd Gaming's first property in North Las Vegas,
and its 10th property in southern Nevada, one of the
fastest-growing gaming markets in the United States.  The Company's
current Nevada portfolio includes The Orleans and Gold Coast, both
located just west of the Las Vegas Strip; Suncoast, located just
south of the master-planned community of Summerlin in northwest Las
Vegas; Sam's Town, on the east side of Las Vegas on Boulder
Highway; Eldorado and Jokers Wild, both located in Henderson; and
California Hotel and Casino, Fremont Hotel and Casino, and Main
Street Station, all in downtown Las Vegas.

The Company expects the transaction to be cash flow positive and
accretive to earnings per share during its first full year of
ownership.

The transaction is expected to close during the third quarter,
subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions and the
receipt of all required regulatory approvals, including approval by
the Nevada Gaming Commission and the Federal Trade Commission.  The
transaction will be funded with cash on hand.

Morrison & Foerster LLP served as legal advisor to Boyd Gaming for
the transaction.  Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP served as
legal advisor and Houlihan Lokey served as financial advisor to
Aliante.

ALPHA NATURAL: Coal Act Funds Ask for Adequate Protection
---------------------------------------------------------
The Coal Act Funds, made up of the UMWA Combined Benefit Fund and
the UMWA 1992 Benefit Plan, ask the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Eastern District of Virginia, Richmond Division, for adequate
protection of the Coal Act Funds' interests in property, in the
event that the Debtors' property is sold free and clear of such
interests under Section 363(f) of the Bankruptcy Code.

"The Debtors have proposed to turn over their core assets to a
group of pre-petition lenders through a "sale" structured as a $500
million credit bid... The terms of the proposed sale purport to
extinguish, via Section 363(f) of the Bankruptcy Code, liabilities
of the purchaser that might arise in the future under the Coal Act
in connection with the sold properties... The Coal Act Funds have
objected to Section 363(f) relief, because future Coal Act tax
liability of the purchaser of the Debtors' assets, for periods
after the closing of a sale, cannot be extinguished by an order of
this Court under Section 363(f) of the Bankruptcy Code... If (and
only if) the Court overrules the Coal Act Funds' objection, the
Coal Act Funds request that the Court order the Debtors to provide
adequate protection to the Coal Act Funds with respect to such
interests, as required by section 363(e)," the Coal Act Funds
aver.

ALPHA NATURAL: PLR Stalking Horse, Bid Protections Approval Sought
------------------------------------------------------------------
Alpha Natural Resources, Inc., and its affiliated debtors ask the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Virginia,
Richmond Division, to approve the designation of Rice Drilling B
LLC, as the stalking horse bidder for the purchase of the PLR
Assets.

The Debtors also ask the Court to approve the PLR Bid Protections.

The PLR Assets consist of the Debtors' interest in Debtor
Pennsylvania Land Resources Holding Company, LLC's ("PLR
Holdco")natural gas business in the Marcellus Shale in southwestern
Pennsylvania, including all oil and gas assets, owned by its
subsidiary Pennsylvania Land Resources, LLC ("PLR").

The PLR Assets include, but are not limited to:

     (a) oil and gas property rights and related assets, including
wells and pads, held by PLR;

     (b) oil and gas property rights held by Cumberland Coal
Resources, LP; and

     (c) oil and gas property rights, and several shallow
conventional wells, held by PLR Holdco.

The Debtors relate that they have negotiated with a number of
potential purchasers of the PLR Assets who submitted PIIs under the
Bidding Procedures and exchanged drafts of proposed asset purchase
agreements with three parties containing varying terms for a cash
bid for the PLR Assets.  The Debtors further relate that based on
their review of the terms, and after significant good faith, arms'
length negotiations and consultation with the First Lien Lenders
and the Consultation Parties, the Debtors determined that the terms
provided by the PLR Stalking Horse constituted the best available
stalking horse bid for the PLR Assets to set a floor for the
auction process.

The PLR Stalking Horse Asset Purchase Agreement, contains, among
others, the following relevant terms:

     (a) The PLR Stalking Horse will purchase the PLR Assets from
PLR for $200,000,000 in cash and other consideration;

     (b)  As part of the PLR Transaction, the applicable Debtors
and PLR will enter into the Coordination Agreement and the Surface
Use Agreement.

          (i) Coordination Agreement: Establishes the framework
under which the parties will work cooperatively to develop the
properties situated in a specific geographic area, known as the
Coordination Area, having regard for the coal rights of Cumberland,
Debtor Emerald Coal Resources, LP and Debtor Foundation Mining, LLC
("Consenting Parties"), on the one hand, and the oil and gas rights
of the PLR Stalking Horse ("Purchaser"), on the other hand.  It
expressly recites, among others, that the rights of the coal
businesses constitute the dominant estate, and provides the
mechanism for approval by the Consenting Parties of locations for
drilling pads and wells to be constructed by the PLR Stalking Horse
in the Coordination Area.

     (ii) Surface Use Agreement: Will facilitate and establish the
terms and conditions for the granting of surface use rights and
easements for oil and gas operations on lands owned by PLR Holdco
or any purchaser of these assets.  The Surface Use Agreement
further recites that the coal operations comprise the dominant
estate, and relieves PLR Holdco, its affiliates, successors or
third party contractors from liability for subsidence damage.  The
Surface Use Agreement imposes insurance obligations on the PLR
Stalking Horse, as well as providing for indemnification for PLR
Holdco or the subsequent owner of its assets.

"Concurrently with the discussions with potential cash bidders for
the PLR Assets, the Debtors have been in discussions with the First
Lien Lenders, who previously committed to purchase the PLR Assets
as part of the Lender Stalking Horse APA.  To accommodate
the transaction with the PLR Stalking Horse, the First Lien Lenders
have agreed to remove the PLR Assets from the Lender Stalking Horse
APA and make related adjustments to their bid, including by
adjusting the Reserve Price. Consistent with the First Lien
Lenders' allocation of $175,000,000 of the Lender Stalking Horse
Bid to the PLR Assets, the Lender Stalking Horse's revised bid for
the Reserve Price Assets other than the PLR Assets will reduce the
Reserve Price by no more than $175,000,000 from $500,000,000 to not
less than $325,000,000 (such bid, the "Amended Lender Stalking
Horse Bid").  Prior to the commencement of the hearing on this
Motion, the Debtors expect to file an amended Lender Stalking Horse
APA to reflect these changes," the Debtors aver.

The Debtors contend that they intend to continue to market the PLR
Assets to pursue higher or better bids under the Bidding Procedures
and thereby maximize the value of these assets for their estates.
The Debtors further contend that the PLR Stalking Horse has agreed
to participate as a stalking horse bidder for the PLR Assets — at
a cash purchase price well in excess of the First Lien Lenders'
credit bid for the PLR Assets—in exchange for the Debtors'
agreement, subject to Court approval, to provide certain customary
bid protections as fully set forth in the PLR Stalking Horse APA.

The PLR Bid Protections are comprised of the following:

     (a) payment of an expense reimbursement amount, which shall be
an amount equal to the reasonable and documented out-of-pocket
costs, fees and expenses of Purchaser incurred in connection with
the transactions contemplated by the PLR Stalking Horse APA,
including, without limitation, (i) the negotiation and execution of
the PLR Stalking Horse APA, and (ii) carrying out its obligations
under the PLR Stalking Horse APA prior to the Closing; provided,
however, that such Expense Reimbursement Amount shall not exceed
$1,500,000; and/or

     (b) payment of a break-up fee, equal to one percent of the
Unadjusted Cash Amount payable under the PLR Stalking Horse APA —
i.e., a break-up fee of $2,000,000.


The Debtors tell the Court that after analysis and review with the
input of their advisors, the Debtors concluded that the proposed
PLR Transaction, including the PLR Bid Protections, constitutes a
Qualified Bid and provides the best available alternative for
pursuing a value maximizing sale of the PLR Assets for the benefit
of
the Debtors' stakeholders.

ALTA MESA: Moody's Lowers CFR to Caa2, Outlook Remains Negative
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded Alta Mesa Holdings, LP's
Corporate Family Rating to Caa2 from Caa1 and its Probability of
Default Rating (PDR) to Caa2-PD from Caa1-PD.  At the same time,
Moody's downgraded Alta Mesa's senior unsecured notes to Caa3 from
Caa2.  Moody's affirmed the SGL-4 Speculative Grade Liquidity
Rating.  The rating outlook remains negative.

"Alta Mesa's rating downgrade reflects Moody's expectations of weak
liquidity, worsening credit metrics through 2017, and growing
refinancing concerns," said Moody's Assistant Vice President,
Morris Borenstein.  "The company's capital structure will need to
be addressed, with revolver and term loan maturities in 2017 and
its senior notes maturing in 2018."

Rating downgrades:

  Corporate Family Rating (CFR) to Caa2 from Caa1
  Probability of Default Rating (PDR) to Caa2-PD from Caa1-PD
  Senior notes due 2018 to Caa3 (LGD5) from Caa2 (LGD5)

Rating affirmed:
  Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating at SGL-4
  The rating outlook is negative.

                        RATINGS RATIONALE

Alta Mesa's Caa2 Corporate Family Rating (CFR) reflects its weak
liquidity position, expected deterioration in credit metrics
through 2017, and increasing refinancing risk.  Moody's expects
modestly negative free cash flow in 2016.  Weak cash flow prospects
will result from declining realized energy prices and a capital
spending plan intended on increasing production.  The company's
revolver is subject to a Spring 2016 borrowing base redetermination
that could reduce access concurrently as the facility is set to
expire in October 2017.  Additionally, Alta Mesa's $450 million of
unsecured notes and $125 million 2nd lien term loan both mature in
2018.  Moody's believes asset coverage for the senior notes is weak
given its subordination position in the capital structure.  The
ratings are supported by Alta Mesa's good hedge protection in 2016,
albeit weakening in 2017, and its large, oily acreage in Oklahoma's
STACK play.

The SGL-4 Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating reflects Moody's
expectation of weak liquidity through 2017.  Free cash flow will be
negative to break even in 2016 as the company tries to grow
production while operating within cash flows.  While the company's
February 11, 2016 private bondholder debt exchange was
unsuccessful, Moody's believes there is still risk of other
attempted restructurings in the near term.  The company's $300
revolving credit facility is fully drawn with $158 million utilized
and the remainder deposited into a bank-controlled account that
contains certain restrictions for withdrawals.  The revolver is
subject to a Spring 2016 borrowing base redetermination that may
result in a reduction in availability. The company's revolver
matures in October 2017.  Failure to extend the maturity and/or
refinance the facility could result in lower ratings.  The secured
2nd lien term loan and unsecured notes mature in April and October
2018, respectively.  With declining EBITDA in 2016, Moody's
believes the company faces covenant breaches under its revolver
covenants, specifically its maximum debt to EBITDA and EBITDA to
Interest Expense coverage covenants. A February 2016 credit
agreement amendment expanded the debt to EBITDA covenant to 4.5
times from 4 times for the second and third quarters in 2016
however interest coverage remains weak and both covenants will be
breached late in 2016 unless it can reduce leverage.

The rating outlook is negative given the company's weak liquidity,
vulnerability to tightening borrowing base redeterminations and
upcoming revolver maturity in 2017.  Failure to address its nearing
maturities and revolver financial covenants could result in a
downgrade.  The ratings are unlikely to be upgraded in the near
term given the liquidity and maturity concerns.  The ratings could
be upgraded with a materially improved capital structure.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Global
Independent Exploration and Production Industry published in
December 2011.

Headquartered in Houston, Texas, Alta Mesa Holdings, LP is a
privately owned independent E&P company.  The company's operations
are primarily in Oklahoma and Louisiana.  Alta Mesa's private
equity partner is Highbridge Principal Strategies LLC.



AMERICAN HOSPICE: HPA Has Offer; Sale Hearing on April 28
---------------------------------------------------------

auction for its assets will be conducted on Apr. 25, 2016.  The
sale hearing is scheduled on Apr. 28, 2016, at 3:00 p.m.  American
Hospice asked the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of
Delaware to approve their procedures for the sale of substantially
all of their assets, as well as the sale of their Texas and
Virginia Assets to the stalking horse purchaser, Hospice Partners
of America, LLC, subject to higher or better offers.

The Debtors operate in a heavily regulated industry and have very
tight working capital.  They further relate that they are currently
not profitable and their liabilities vastly exceed their assets.
The Debtors determined that the most appropriate method of ensuring
proper care of their patients while preserving and maximizing the
value of their assets for the benefit of their stakeholders is to
pursue a sale of substantially all of their assets.  

Hospice Partners of America submitted a letter of intent to buy the
Debtors' businesses in Texas and Virginia.  The Debtors further
have no prospective purchasers for their Remaining Assets, which
consist of businesses in Georgia, Arizona, Oklahoma, and New
Jersey.

Hospice Partners of America has earlier agreed to provide
debtor-in-possession financing to the Debtors in an amount up to
$500,000.

APOLLO RESIDENTIAL: Egan-Jones Cuts FC Sr. Unsec. Rating to B
-------------------------------------------------------------
Egan-Jones Ratings Company lowered the foreign currency senior
unsecured rating on debt issued by Apollo Residential Mortgage Inc.
to B from B+ on April 25, 2016.  EJR also lowered the foreign
currency commercial paper rating on the Company to C from B.

Based in New York, Apollo Residential Mortgage, Inc. primarily
invests in residential mortgage assets in the United States. Its
investment portfolio comprises agency residential mortgage-backed

inverse interest-only securities; non-Agency RMBS; securitized

well as other investments.



ARIA ENERGY: S&P Affirms 'B' CCR & Revises Outlook to Negative
--------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services affirmed its 'B' corporate
credit rating on Aria Energy Operating LLC and revised the outlook
to negative from stable.

The rating on the senior secured debt is affirmed at 'B'.  The '3'
recovery rating on this debt indicates expectations for meaningful
(50%-70%, lower half of the range) recovery if a payment default
occurs.

"The negative outlook reflects operational challenges that Aria
encountered that have led to lower production volumes, increased
operating costs, and higher ongoing maintenance expense," said
Standard & Poor's credit analyst Geoffrey Mrema.  These factors
have combined to reduce cash flow resulting in financial measures
that are below S&P's expectations.  S&P expects this weakness to
persist.

The negative outlook reflects S&P's expectation that operational
difficulties and higher O&M costs will persist into the fourth
quarter of 2015 and into 2016.  S&P expects FFO to debt of about
12.24% and debt to EBITDA of about 5.45x in 2016.

S&P may lower the rating if the company doesn't meet its base-case
forecast, resulting in debt to EBITDA being roughly above 6x on a
sustained basis.  This could result from operating problems or
weaker-than-expected merchant energy markets.  A downgrade could
also occur if the company's financial policy became more
aggressive, reflected by increased leverage.

S&P could change the outlook to stable if it believes that Aria has
resolved operational issues and will keep its debt to EBITDA below
5x on an ongoing basis.



ASARCO LLC: Cannot Recoup $7.4MM from Noranda Due to Estoppel
-------------------------------------------------------------
In the case captioned ASARCO, LLC, a Delaware limited liability
company, Plaintiff, v. NORANDA MINING, INC., a Delaware
corporation, Defendant, Case No. 2:12-CV-527-TC-DBP (D. Utah),
Judge Tena Campbell of the United States District Court for the
District of Utah, Central Division, granted Noranda Mining, Inc.'s
motion for summary judgment based on judicial estoppel grounds and
ASARCO LLC's judicial admissions and Noranda's motion for summary
judgment based on failure to state a claim, contribution
protection, and lack of standing.

After Asarco emerged from bankruptcy in 2009, it sued Noranda to
recoup a portion of $7.4 million it paid to the Environmental
Protection Agency for environmental cleanup of a former mining site
near Park City, Utah.  Asarco relied on Section 113 of the
Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability
Act to claim a right to payment (contribution) from Noranda.

Noranda asked the court to grant summary judgment on Asarco's
claims because:

   (1) Asarco lacks standing to seek contribution for cleanup of a
portion of the site because it failed to preserve that contribution
claim when it was discharged from bankruptcy;

   (2) Asarco is judicially estopped from recovering the $7.4
million because it convinced the bankruptcy court to accept
Asarco's representation that $7.4 million was its fair share of
response costs at the site;

   (3) Noranda is statutorily protected from at least a portion of
its alleged liability to Asarco because the EPA granted Noranda
contribution protection through a partial consent decree under
CERCLA; and

   (4) Asarco's claim fails as a matter of law under CERCLA because
Asarco cannot establish that it paid more than its fair share of
costs for cleanup at the site.

Judge Campbell found that Asarco, LLC, has standing to bring the
entirety of its contribution claim, but that Noranda Mining, Inc.,
is entitled to summary judgment based on judicial estoppel,
Noranda's contribution protection, and Asarco's inability to
establish that it paid more than its fair share of costs at the
Site.

memorandum decision is available at http://is.gd/NUSt4Hfrom
Leagle.com.

An Amended Order, dated March 31, 2016, is available at
http://is.gd/vOff2tfrom Leagle.com.  The Amended Order only
changes the March 29, 2016 Order and Memorandum in two related
respects: the incorrect date of "March 1, 2016," which appears in
the text of page 31 and again in footnote 33 of the original order,
has been corrected to read "March 1, 2006."

                     About Atlantic & Pacific

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

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

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

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

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

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


AXIALL CORP: S&P Lowers Corp. Credit Rating to BB-, Outlook Stable
------------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its corporate credit
rating on Axiall Corp. to 'BB-' from 'BB'.  The outlook is stable.


S&P also lowered its issue-level rating on Axiall's senior secured
debt one notch to 'BB+' from 'BBB-'.  The recovery rating on the
company's senior secured debt remains '1', reflecting S&P's
expectation of very high recovery (90%-100%) if a default occurs.
At the same time, S&P lowered its issue-level rating on the
company's senior unsecured debt to 'BB-' from 'BB'.  The recovery
rating on the unsecured debt remains '3', reflecting S&P's
expectation of modest (upper half of the 50%-70% range) recovery if
a default occurs.

"The ratings on Axiall reflect our assessment of the company's
business risk profile as fair and its financial risk profile as
aggressive," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Sebastian
Pinto-Thomaz.

Axiall's results have been challenged by oversupply in the
chlor-alkali markets and less-than-expected polyvinyl chloride
(PVC) demand.  At the current rating, S&P expects the ratio of
funds from operations (FFO) to debt and adjusted debt to EBITDA to
be above 12% and below 5x, respectively.  S&P views the sale of the
company's aromatics business and restructuring efforts as positive.
S&P could view a sale of its building products business as
beneficial to credit quality, but do not incorporate any
significant divestiture in S&P's base case forecast.  Given the
company's rejection of Westlake Chemical Corp.'s recent bid, S&P do
not factor this possibility in its assessment.

The outlook on Axiall Corp. is stable.  Despite industry
cyclicality and weaker results than anticipated, S&P expects the
company to maintain credit measures in line with its aggressive
financial risk profile over the next 12 months.  This includes FFO
to total adjusted debt above 12%.  S&P believes the company will
maintain its cost position among global producers of chloralkali
and vinyl, and believe it stands to benefit from the continuing
recovery in U.S. housing markets.  S&P has not assumed the
divestiture of the company's building products division in its base
case forecast.

S&P could lower the ratings if FFO to debt drops below 12% without
prospects for improvement in the next 12 months over the next year.
This could occur as a result of operating problems, weak product
pricing, or weak economic conditions.

An upgrade is unlikely during the next year based on the company's
operating results.  If the company uses proceeds from potential
divestitures to substantially reduce outstanding debt, S&P could
consider revising the rating.  S&P could also raise the ratings if
the company maintains prudent financial policies and achieves FFO
to debt above 20% on a sustainable basis.



BASIC ENERGY: Egan-Jones Cuts Sr. Unsecured Ratings to C
--------------------------------------------------------
Egan-Jones Ratings Company downgraded the senior unsecured ratings
on debt issued by Basic Energy Services Inc. to C on April 22,
2016.  EJR also lowered the foreign currency commercial paper
rating on the Company to D from B.

Headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas, Basic Energy Services Inc.
provides well site services to oil and natural gas drilling and

BINDER & BINDER: Time to Remove Actions Extended to Aug. 1
----------------------------------------------------------
U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Robert Drain has granted Binder & Binder a
fourth extension of time to file notice of removal of civil actions
through the later of Aug. 1, 2016, or should the Court enter an
order terminating the automatic stay as to a particular Civil
Action, for such Civil Action, 30 days after the entry of such
order terminating the automatic stay.

                     About Binder & Binder

Founded in 1979 by brothers Harry and Charles Binder, Binder &
Binder is the nation's largest provider of social security
disability and veterans' benefits advocacy services, with operating
scale and efficiencies unrivaled by its competitors in the highly
fragmented advocacy market.  The Company has more than 950
employees in 35 offices across the United States.  In 2010, H.I.G.
Capital, LLC, acquired a controlling equity interest in the
Company.  Since 1979, the Company has handled over 300,000
disability cases under programs operated by the SSA and the VA.

Binder & Binder - The National Social Security Disability Advocates
(NY), LLC, et al., sought Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection (Bankr.
S.D.N.Y. Lead Case No. 14-23728) in White Plains, New York on
Dec.18, 2014.  The cases are assigned to Judge Robert D. Drain.

The Debtors have tapped Kenneth A. Rosen, Cassandra Porter, Esq.,
and Nicholas B. Vislocky, Esq., at Lowenstein Sandler as counsel.
The Debtors have engaged Development Specialists, Inc., as
financial advisor, and BMC Group Inc. as claims and notice agent.

The U.S. Trustee appointed an Official Committee of Unsecured
Creditors in the Debtors' cases.  The Committee is now comprised of
(i) United Service Workers Union, Local 455 IUJAT & Related Funds,
(ii) T&G Industries, Inc., (iii) WB Mason Co., and (iv)
Teaktronics, Inc.  The Committee tapped Klestadt Winters Jureller
Southard & Stevens, LLP, as attorneys.

                          *     *     *

The Debtors originally arranged from existing lenders DIP financing
of $26 million, which provided for the payment in full, or roll-up,
of the $23 million of prepetition indebtedness and an additional
commitment of up to $3 million to fund the Debtors' operations
during the Chapter 11 cases.  On Jan. 26, 2015, the Initial DIP
Lenders issued a notice that events of default had occurred.

In March 2015, the Debtors won approval to obtain a new $6 million
term loan from Stellus Capital Investment Corporation secured by a
first-priority priming lien on all of the Debtors' assets.

On Oct. 29, 2015, the Court entered an order granting Stellus'
motion for termination of the Debtors' exclusive plan filing and
solicitation periods pursuant to Section 1121(d) of the Bankruptcy
Code.

On Nov. 18, 2015, Stellus Capital and the Creditors Committee filed
a Joint Plan of Liquidation for the Debtors, and on Jan. 15, 2016,
they filed a First Amended Joint Plan of Reorganization.  The
original hearing on the Proponents' Disclosure Statement has been
further adjourned for April 22, 2016.


BIOFUELS POWER: Incurs $908,000 Net Loss in 2015
------------------------------------------------
Biofuels Power Corporation filed with the Securities and Exchange
Commission its annual report on Form 10-K disclosing a net loss of
$908,305 on $0 of sales for the year ended Dec. 31, 2015, compared
to a net loss of $1.08 million on $0 of sales for the year ended
Dec. 31, 2014.

As of Dec. 31, 2015, Biofuels Power had $2.21 million in total
assets, $8.41 million in total liabilities and a total
stockholders' deficit of $6.20 million.

Briggs & Veselka Co., in Houston, Texas, issued a "going concern"
qualification on the consolidated financial statements for the year
ended Dec. 31, 2015, citing that the Company has suffered
significant losses and will require additional capital to develop
its business until the Company either (1) achieves a level of
revenues adequate to generate sufficient cash flows from
operations; or (2) obtains additional financing necessary to
support its working capital requirements.  These conditions raise
substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a
going concern, the auditors said.

Humble, Tex.-based Biofuels Power Corporation is a distributed
energy company that is pioneering the use of biodiesel to fuel

proximity to end-users.  BPC's first power plant is currently

BOMBARDIER RECREATIONAL: Moody's Affirms Ba3 CFR, Outlook Stable
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service revised Bombardier Recreational Products
Inc.'s (BRP) ratings outlook to stable from positive.  Moody's also
affirmed the company's Ba3 corporate family rating, Ba3-PD
probability of default rating, Baa3 senior secured revolving credit
facility rating, and Ba3 senior secured term loan rating and raised
the company's speculative grade liquidity rating to SGL-1 from
SGL-2.

"The outlook change to stable recognizes that improvement in BRP's
credit metrics through the next 12 to 18 months will not be robust
enough to meet the requirement for an upgrade", says Peter Adu, a
Moody's analyst.

Ratings Affirmed:

  Corporate Family Rating, Ba3

  Probability of Default Rating, Ba3-PD

  C$350 million secured revolving credit facility due May 2018,
   Baa3 (LGD1)

  US$792 million secured term loan due January 2019, Ba3 (LGD3)

Rating Raised:
  Speculative Grade Liquidity, to SGL-1 from SGL-2

Outlook:
  Changed to Stable from Positive

                         RATING RATIONALE

BRP's Ba3 CFR primarily reflects its good market positions and
well-recognized global brands, and solid key credit metrics
evidenced by adjusted Debt/EBITDA of 3.3x, EBIT/Interest of 4.2x
and RCF/Net Debt of 24%.  The rating also reflects the company's
solid liquidity and demonstrated ability to successfully launch new
products.  The company's positive attributes are mitigated by the
cyclical demand for its high-priced, discretionary products
(snowmobiles, side-by-side and all-terrain vehicles, roadster,
personal watercraft, outboard engines) and the inherent volatility
in its earnings.  Macroeconomic conditions influence demand for the
company's products and the rating assumes only modest volume growth
into the medium term due to muted economic growth expectations in
some of its markets.  However, further penetration of established
products and new product introductions should drive modest EBITDA
growth and enable leverage to be maintained around 3x through the
next 12 to 18 months.

BRP has very good liquidity (SGL-1), supported by cash of C$235
million at Q4/16 (January 2016), C$347 million of availability
under its C$350 million revolver due in May 2018, Moody's
expectation for annual free cash flow around C$200 million and lack
of scheduled term loan repayments through 2019.  BRP does not have
to comply with any financial covenant unless its borrowing base
less revolver drawings falls below C$100 million for 7 consecutive
days, to which it will have to meet a minimum fixed charge coverage
of 1.1x.  Moody's does not expect this covenant to be restrictive
for the foreseeable future.  BRP has limited flexibility to boost
liquidity from asset sales.

The stable outlook reflects Moody's expectation that the strength
of BRP's business profile will allow the company to maintain
existing credit metrics through the next 12 to 18 months, despite
soft economic growth conditions.

The rating would be upgraded if BRP maintained strong liquidity and
sustained adjusted Debt/EBITDA towards 2.5x and EBIT/Interest above
4.5x.  The rating could be downgraded should earnings shortfall
result in adjusted Debt/EBITDA being sustained towards 4x and
EBIT/Interest below 2.5x.  The rating could also be downgraded if
BRP engages in a debt-funded distribution to its owners or if its
liquidity position deteriorates.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Consumer
Durables Industry published in September 2014.

Bombardier Recreational Products Inc. is a global manufacturer of
motorized recreational products under the Ski-Doo, Sea-Doo, Can-Am,
Evinrude and Rotax brands.  Revenue for the fiscal year ended Jan.
31, 2016 was C$3.8 billion.  The company is headquartered in
Valcourt, Quebec, Canada.



BRADLEY WESTON TAGGART: OK to Seek Atty Fees in State Court
-----------------------------------------------------------
Diane Davis, writing for Bloomberg Brief, reported that a
bankruptcy court applied an incorrect legal standard to determine
whether parties had actual knowledge that they violated an order
granting the bankrupt debtor a discharge from his debts when they
applied for their attorneys' fees in state court, the U.S.
Bankruptcy Appellate Panel for the Ninth Circuit held April 12.

According to the report, Judge Meredith A. Jury reversed the
bankruptcy court's finding of contempt and vacated its judgment
awarding sanctions against the appellants.  The bankruptcy court's
factual findings were
erroneous and not supported by the record, the BAP said, the report
related.

The report related that Sherwood Park Business Center, LLC, sued
debtor Bradley Weston Taggart, BT of Sherwood, LLC, and the
debtor's attorney John M. Berman in state court before the debtor
filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy.  Following discharge, Terry W.
Emmert and Keith Jehnke resumed the state court litigation and the
state court ruled in SPBC's favor by unwinding the debtor's
transfer of his membership interest, the report related.  Later,
Emmert and Jehnke's attorney sought attorneys' fees and costs in
state court for the period after the debtor's discharge, the report
further related.  The state court ruled that the debtor "had
returned to the fray" and, thus, the discharge injunction didn't
apply to the post-discharge request for attorneys' fees and costs
under Boeing North American, Inc. v. Ybarra (In re Ybarra), 424
F.3d 1018 (9th Cir. 2005), the report said.


CAESARS ENTERTAINMENT: Makes Settlement Offer to Bondholder Group
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Jacqueline Palank, writing for Dow Jones' Daily Bankruptcy Review,
reported that Caesars Entertainment Corp. and its bankrupt
operating unit have offered an olive branch to a group of
bondholders in a bid to move the unit's chapter 11 restructuring
forward.

According to the report, Caesars Entertainment Operating Co. says
it and its publicly traded parent, which isn't in bankruptcy, have
offered 85 cents on the dollar to the holders of $502 million in
bond debt guaranteed by the CEOC unit's subsidiaries, the casino
companies said on April 26.

The settlement offer, which isn't binding and is subject to further
negotiation, would settle a skirmish between the bondholder group
and CEOC's senior creditors, the report related.  The settlement
offer comes as CEOC works to achieve broad creditor support for its
$18 billion restructuring, which has been marked by numerous
creditor battles, the report further related.

Led by trustee Wilmington Trust, the subsidiary-guaranteed
bondholders moved to essentially strengthen their ability to
collect on their claims, the report said.  The bondholders sought
to limit the ability of the senior creditors to turn to the CEOC
subsidiaries to collect on their $11 billion in claims, the report
added.

                  About Caesars Entertainment

-------------------------------------------------------

official committee of unsecured creditors has been appointed in the
Chapter 11 case of Camelback, LLC.

Camelback, LLC, sought protection under Chapter 11 of the
Bankruptcy Code in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of
Arizona (Phoenix) (Bankr. D. Ariz., Case No. 16-01413) on February
17, 2016.  

The petition was signed by the Debtor's attorney John C. Smith,
Esq., at Smith & Smith Law Offices, PLLC.  The case is assigned to
Judge Eddward P. Ballinger Jr.  

The Debtor estimated both assets and liabilities in the range of $1
million to $10 million.

CHARLOTTE RUSSE: S&P Lowers CCR to 'B-', Outlook Negative
---------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its corporate credit
rating on Charlotte Russe Inc. to 'B-' from 'B'.  The outlook is
negative.  At the same time, S&P lowered the issue-level rating on
the senior secured term loan facility to 'B-' from 'B'.  The
recovery rating is '4', indicating S&P's expectations for modest
recovery in the event of a default, at the lower end of the 30% to
50% range.

"The rating action reflects the company's continued
underperformance throughout fiscal 2015, which resulted in
meaningfully negative free operating cash flow for the year.
Merchandising at Charlotte Russe has been ineffective, as the
company muted its value messaging and reduced its night/dressy
product mix too far in light of casual trends, which did not
resonate with its core customer," said credit analyst Andrew Bove.
"In addition to these company-specific issues, the specialty
apparel industry has become increasingly more competitive as mall
traffic persistently declines, and retailers are left vying for a
smaller share of consumers' wallets who continue to be cautious
when it comes to spending on highly-discretionary, small-ticket
items.  Although we expect some stabilization in operating trends
in fiscal 2016, we believe performance will remain weak and free
operating cash flow will continue to be negative despite our
expectation for lower capital spending."

The negative outlook reflects considerable weakening of the
company's credit metrics throughout fiscal 2015, including
fixed-charge coverage which has declined to 1.0x.  Although S&P
expects some improvement in operating performance over the next 12
months, S&P believes operating performance will remain challenged,
resulting in continued negative free operating cash flow despite a
meaningful reduction in capital spending over that time period.

S&P could lower the ratings if the company is unable to stabilize
or improve operating performance, as a result of continued poor
merchandising and declining traffic trends.  Under this scenario,
sales trends will remain negative and gross margin would be around
the current level.  This would lead to meaningfully negative free
operating cash flow, causing the company to make significant draws
under its revolving credit facility to fund its business
operations, and would result in a fixed-charge coverage ratio
sustaining at or below 1.0x.

Although unlikely, S&P could consider revising the outlook to
stable if the company can meaningfully improve operating
performance and credit metrics over the next 12 months by improving
traffic trends and decreasing the amount of markdown activity.
Under this scenario, gross margin would improve by 150 bps over
S&P's base-case expectation, comparable-sales would grow in the
low-single-digit range (compared with S&P's forecast of flat
comparable-sales), and free operating cash flow would be positive.
This would result in debt to EBITDA in the mid-4.0x and
fixed-charge coverage in the low- to mid-1.0x range on a sustained
basis.

CITYCENTER HOLDINGS: Moody's Raises Corporate Family Rating to B1
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service upgraded CityCenter Holdings LLC's
Corporate Family Rating to B1 and its Probability of Default Rating
to B1-PD.  Moody's also upgraded the company's senior secured bank
term loan and revolving credit facility to B1.

"The upgrade reflects debt reduction and CityCenter's rising EBITDA
as operating conditions on the Las Vegas Strip continue to improve
evidenced by higher visitation, rising room rates, and limited
supply growth", said Moody's analyst, Peggy Holloway.  As a result,
debt/EBITDA of 4.3 times at year-end 2015 will decline to
approximately 3.7 times (below our 4.5 times level for an upgrade)
and EBITDA coverage of interest will rise to 5.6 times by year-end
2016.  Moody's estimates are adjusted for the sale of the company's
retail mall, The Shops at Crystals.  Given Moody's stable outlook
for operating conditions in Las Vegas, we expect CityCenter can at
least sustain debt/EBITDA and EBITDA/interest around 4.0 times and
5.6 times, respectively.

Moody's also assigned a Speculative Grade Liquidity rating of SGL-1
reflecting CityCenter's strong liquidity profile.  CityCenter's
cash flow exceeds its interest expense, mandatory debt
amortization, partner distributions, and capital spending needs.
The company also has an undrawn $75 million revolver which is not
expected to be used.

Ratings upgraded:

  Corporate Family rating to B1 from B2

  Probability of Default rating to B1-PD from B2-PD

  Senior secured revolving credit facility to B1 (LGD4) from B2
   (LGD4)

  Senior secured term loan B to B1 (LGD4) from B2 (LGD4)

Ratings assigned:

  Speculative Grade Liquidity rating of SGL-1

Outlook Actions:

  Outlook, Remains Stable

                        RATINGS RATIONALE

CityCenter's B1 Corporate Family Rating acknowledges the inherent
risks associated with having all of its revenue and earnings
derived from a single gaming market, particularly in light the
industry's vulnerability to changes in consumer spending and
corporate/convention travel budgets.  Positive rating consideration
is given to our current view that the Las Vegas Strip market will
continue to perform well, which will translate into higher earnings
and free cash flow.  Moody's expects the company will build cash
with its excess free cash flow that could be used for distributions
to shareholders.

CityCenter sold its retail mall, The Shoppes at Crystals for
$1.1 billion and the Board of Directors approved a $1.08 dividend
to be paid to its shareholders in the second quarter.  CityCenter
used cash on hand to repay $266 million on its term B loan facility
in the first quarter.

The stable rating outlook reflects Moody's view that CityCenter
will continue to benefit from stable operating conditions in Las
Vegas that will enable the company to maintain strong interest
coverage and debt/EBITDA around 4.0 times.

Upward rating potential is limited due to the company's geographic
concentration.  However, ratings would be considered for an upgrade
if debt/EBITDA declines below 3.5 times, the operating outlook for
Las Vegas is stable, supply growth is manageable and liquidity is
strong.  An upgrade would also require the company to demonstrate a
willingness to maintain leverage at lower levels through economic
cycles.

Ratings would be downgraded if debt/EBITDA increases and is
sustained above 5.0 times.  Downward rating pressure could also
develop if visitation trends and gaming revenues on the Las Vegas
Strip were to show signs of sustained deterioration.

CityCenter Holdings LLC owns and operates CityCenter, a mixed-use
development located on the Las Vegas Strip that opened in December
2009.  CityCenter is a joint venture between MGM Resorts
International (B2 RUR) and Infinity World (a subsidiary of Dubai
World, not rated.)  MGM is the operating manager.  CityCenter
generates approximately $1.25 billion in annual net revenue.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Global Gaming
Industry published in June 2014.

CORNERSTONE INDUSTRIES: Proposes $3-Mil. Sale to One Smooth
-----------------------------------------------------------
Cornerstone Industries, Inc., on April 22, 2016, filed a motion
asking the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Utah for
authority to sell substantially all of its assets to One Smooth
Stone, Inc., for $3,000,000, subject to higher and better offers.

The Debtor has filed its Plan of Reorganization dated March 18,
2016, and a related Disclosure Statement.  Hearing on the adequacy
of the Disclosure Statement is scheduled for May 4, 2016.  The
Debtor's Plan is to be funded by the sale of substantially all of
its assets.  The Debtor seeks to have hearings on the Disclosure
Statement and on initial approval of this Motion at the same time,
on May 4, 2016.  The Debtor then seeks to have the sale process
concluded and to have final approval of the sale, including the
prevailing purchaser and the terms of sale, approved at the hearing
on confirmation of the Plan.

                           Real Property

The Debtor owns the surface rights to real property in fee simple
located in Iron County, Utah and is the lessee under two mineral
leases on the same property with the Utah School and Institutional
Trust Lands Administration.  It is also the mine claimant under
numerous mining claims with the United States Bureau of Land
Management.  The Real Property, SITLA Leases, and BLM Mining Claims
as well as other personal property owned by the Debtor comprise the
Debtor's Assets.  

Much of the testing and analysis of samples taken from the Debtor's
ore stockpile located on its property has been completed by Mercy
Mountain Metals, Inc. pursuant to a good faith operating agreement
between the Debtor and Mercy Mountain dated July 8, 2013.  Mercy
Mountain has also developed a successful pilot plant to extract
precious metals from the Debtor's ore.

The Debtor has received mixed test results from experts on the
value of the precious metals that could be extracted from the
Debtor's SITLA Leases and BLM Mining Claims.  One expert, whom the
Debtor has been unable to locate for the past nine months, found
that the ore owned by the Debtor was very rich in precious metals
and, if an efficient and economical process to remove the precious
metals could be developed, the ore could be extremely valuable. A
later expert retained to testify for the Debtor found significantly
lower precious metal content in the Debtor's ore, such that the
value of the ore and related SITLA Leases and BLM Mining Claims
could be in the low hundreds of thousands of dollars in value
rather than the millions.

The Debtor has had no funds with which to operate its business and
owes Mercy Mountain several million dollars for its services under
the Mercy Mountain Agreement. The Court has given interim approval
for a debtor in possession loan (the "DIP Loan") to the Debtor and
final hearing on the DIP Loan will be held on May 4, 2016.  The
full amount of the DIP Loan is $100,000.

                       Stalking Horse Agreement

The Debtor has negotiated a Stalking Horse Agreement with One
Smooth Stone, by which substantially all of the Debtor's Assets
will be sold free and clear of liens and its important contracts
and leases will be assumed (with required cure obligations) and
assigned for $3,000,000.  The Purchase Price will be paid by One
Smooth Stone over a period not to exceed twelve months.  The
payment obligation by One Smooth Stone will be represented by a
promissory note.  As set forth in the Stalking Horse Agreement,
transfer documents will be signed and deposited into escrow at
closing.  Existing liens and other encumbrances on the Debtor's
Assets will remain in place until the full Purchase Price is paid,
at which time the transfer documents will be released from escrow
and recorded.  Payments under the confirmed Plan will reduce the
amounts owed to holders of Allowed Secured Claims during the
interim.  When the Purchase Price is satisfied, the Court's Order
authorizing the sale of the Debtor's Assets free and clear of liens
and other encumbrances will also be recorded.  The full amount of
the Purchase Price is sufficient to pay Secured Claims in full and
to provide a substantial recovery to holders of general unsecured
claims.  The offer by One Smooth Stone is subject to higher and
better offers.

                          Bidding Process

The Debtor anticipates that its Assets will be sold in a single
sale.

The Debtor understands that its secured creditors discussed the
possible sale of the Assets to other parties and the Debtor
welcomes interested parties to participate in the sale process.

The Debtor will solicit bids in hopes of receiving offers higher
and better than the Stalking Horse Agreement.  In the event one or
more Qualified Bids are received prior to the Bid Deadline, the
Debtor will hold an Auction at which it, in consultation with its
secured creditors, will choose the party with the highest and best
bid for the Assets.  The Debtor intends to present the Successful
Bid for approval by the Court at the final hearing to approve the
Sale Motion (which they intend to have heard in connection with
confirmation of the Plan).

D.J. SIMMONS: Bar Date For Filing Proofs of Claim Set on May 27
---------------------------------------------------------------
U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Joseph G. Rosania, Jr., has established the
bar date for filing proofs of claim against D.J. Simmons Inc. is
set on May 27, 2016.

                        About D.J. Simmons

Farmington, New Mexico-based D.J. Simmons Inc. --
http://www.djsimmons.com/-- is an independent oil and gas
exploration and production company.  D.J. Simmons Company Limited
Partnership, Kimbeto Resources, LLC and D.J. Simmons, Inc. filed
separate Chapter 11 petitions (Bankr. D. Colo. Case Nos. 16-11763,
16-11765 and 16-11767) on March 1, 2016.  The cases are jointly
administered under Lead Case No. 16-11763.

The petitions were signed by John Byrom, president of D.J. Simmons,
Inc.  D.J. Simmons Company disclosed $9.94 million in total assets
and $12.85 million in total liabilities.  Kimbeto Resources
disclosed $976,190 in total assets and $9.81 million in total
liabilities.  Ethan Birnberg, Esq., at Lindquist & Vennum LLP,
serves as the Debtors' counsel.


DARDEN RESTAURANTS: Moody's Withdraws Ba1 Corporate Family Rating
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service upgraded the senior unsecured ratings of
Darden Restaurants, Inc., to Baa3 from Ba1 and short term
commercial paper rating to Prime-3 from Not Prime.  In addition,
Moody's withdrew its Ba1 Corporate Family Rating (CFR), Ba1-PD
Probability of Default rating and SGL-2 Speculative Grade Liquidity
rating.  The ratings outlook is stable.  This concludes Moody's
review initiated on April 8, 2016.

Moody's upgrade reflects Darden's improved earnings performance
with positive same store sales trends at both of its core brands,
Olive Garden and LongHorn and Moody's view that the company's
financial policies will remain moderate going forward with a
balanced approach towards its capital structure and shareholder
returns.  The upgrade also reflects Darden's material scale,
geographic reach and brand diversity within the US and strong
liquidity.

"We expect Darden's operating earnings will continue to improve
driving stronger and more stable credit metrics while maintaining
balanced financial policies" stated Bill Fahy, Moody's Senior
Credit Officer.

Ratings upgraded are:

   -- $150 million senior unsecured notes due 2035 upgraded to
      Baa3 from Ba1 (LGD4)
   -- $300 million senior unsecured notes due 2037 upgraded to
      Baa3 from Ba1 (LGD4)
   -- Short Term Commercial Paper rating to Prime-3 from Not Prime
   -- Senior Unsecured Medium Term Note Program to (P)Baa3 from
      (P)Bal
   -- Senior Unsecured Shelf to (P)Baa3 from (P)Ba1

Ratings withdrawn are:

   -- Corporate Family Rating rated Ba1
   -- Probability of Default Ratings rated Ba1-PD
   -- Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating rated SGL-2

The stable outlook reflects Moody's view that operating
performance, earnings and credit metrics will gradually improve as
management continues to focus on driving profitable same store
sales growth and reducing costs.  The stable outlook also assumes
Darden maintains strong liquidity.

Factors that could result in an upgrade include a sustained
improvement in operating performance, particularly at Olive Garden,
maintaining brand diversity and management establishing a track
record of a moderate financial policy with respect to capital
structure, dividends, share repurchases and debt financed
acquisitions.  Overall, a higher rating would require debt to
EBITDA of about 3.0 times and EBIT coverage of interest of over 4.0
times on a sustained basis.  A higher rating would also require
maintaining strong liquidity.

Factors that could result in a downgrade include deterioration in
operating performance or the adoption of an aggressive financial
policy.  Specifically, ratings could be downgraded in the event
debt to EBITDA approached 4.0 times or EBIT coverage of interest
approached 3.0 times on a sustained basis.

Darden Restaurants Inc. owns and operates about 1,535 restaurants
under brands that include Olive Garden, LongHorn Steakhouse, Yard
House, The Capital Grille, Bahama Breeze, Eddie V's, and Seasons
52.  Annual revenues are about $6.9 billion.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Restaurant
Industry published in September 2015.

ESCALERA RESOURCES: May 6 Deadline for Filing SHU Claims
--------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Colorado has given the royalty
interest holders of Escalera Resources Co.'s Spyglass Hill unit
until May 6 to file proofs of their claim.

Any claim filed after the deadline will be disallowed, according to
the order signed by U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Thomas McNamara.

                     About Escalera Resources

Headquartered in Denver, Colorado, Escalera Resources Co. (OTCMKTS:
ESCRQ) is an independent energy company engaged in the exploration,
development, production and sale of natural gas and crude oil,
primarily in the Rocky Mountain basins of the western United
States.  Escalera was incorporated in Wyoming in 1972 and
reincorporated in Maryland in 2001.  As of October 2015, the
Company had 22 employees, none of whom are subject to a collective
bargaining agreement.

Escalera has approximately 14,300,000 shares of common stock symbol
"ESCR") and 1,610,000 shares of Series A Cumulative Preferred Stock
(symbol "ESCRP") outstanding.

Escalera Resources filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection
(Bankr. D. Colo. Case No. 22395) on Nov. 5, 2015.  Adam Fenster,
the chief financial officer, signed the petition.  Judge Thomas B.
McNamara is assigned to the case.

The Debtor listed total assets of $97.7 million and total
liabilities of $67.7 million as of June 30, 2015.  

On Dec. 15, 2015 the Debtor won approval to employ Onsager |
Guyerson | Fletcher | Johnson ("OGFJ"), as bankruptcy counsel.
Three other professionals were approved by the Court: (i) on Jan.
19, 2016, Hein & Associates, LLP, as accountants for Debtor; (ii)
on Jan. 19, Lindquist & Vennum LLP, as special counsel for the
Debtor in connection with the Humphrey Litigation; and (iii) on
Jan. 28, Jones & Keller, P.C., as special counsel for the Debtor
for general corporate and securities matters.

                            *     *     *

The Court established Jan. 20, 2016, as the last day for all
persons and entities (excluding governmental units) having Claims
against the Debtor to file proofs of claim and May 19, 2016 as the
bar date for governmental units.


FAIRMOUNT SANTROL: S&P Lowers CCR to 'CCC+', Outlook Negative
-------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it lowered its corporate
credit rating on Chesterland, Ohio-based industrial sand producer
Fairmount Santrol Inc. to 'CCC+' from 'B'.  The outlook is
negative.

At the same time, S&P lowered the issue-level rating on the
company's senior secured debt to 'CCC+' from 'B'.  The '4' recovery
rating on the debt is unchanged and indicates S&P's expectation of
average (30% to 50%; upper half of the range) recovery in the event
of a payment default.

"The negative outlook reflects our expectation for continued
pressure on Fairmount's profitability and cash flows over at least
the next 12 months due to reduced drilling and completion activity
and weak demand and pricing for frac sand," said Standard & Poor's
credit analyst Ryan Gilmore.  "As a result, we believe Fairmount
could face a near-term liquidity crisis given its debt maturity
profile in relation to current sources of liquidity."

S&P could lower the rating if it no longer deemed liquidity to be
adequate.  This could occur if demand and prices for frac sand
weakened further from current levels, resulting in accelerated cash
and revolving credit facility usage, or if the company used cash to
redeem its near-term term loan maturity.  In addition, S&P would
lower its rating on Fairmount Santrol to 'CCC' if S&P believes that
a default is likely over the subsequent 12 months absent an
unforeseen positive development.

S&P could raise the rating if we felt liquidity would remain
adequate beyond the March 2017 term loan maturity.  This could
happen if Fairmount refinanced or repurchased its term loan debt in
a liquidity enhancing transaction that S&P do not consider to be
distressed.



FOREST PARK: Wants Until June 8 to Assume or Reject Lease
---------------------------------------------------------
Forest Park Medical Center at Fort Worth, LLC asks the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Texas, Fort Worth
Division, to extend the time period within which it may assume or
reject an unexpired lease of nonresidential real property, from May
9, 2016, to June 8, 2016.

The Debtor's operations are conducted at improved real estate
leased by the Debtor from FPMC Fort Worth Realty Partners, LP. The
real property leased by the Debtor includes the Debtor's hospital
facility, space in a medical office building and a parking garage.

The Debtor relates that prior to the Petition Date, it received a
Notice to Pay Rents to Person Other than Landlord from Sabra Texas
Holdings, L.P., directing the Debtor to pay rent under the Lease to
Sabra based on an alleged default existing under an Assignment of
Rents and related documents between Sabra and the Landlord.  The
Debtor further relates that the Landlord thereafter commenced a
voluntary chapter 11 case in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Northern District of Texas, Fort Worth Division.

The Debtor tells the Court that it has executed a non-binding
letter of intent ("LOI") dated March 30, 2016 from Methodist
Hospitals of Dallas d/b/a Methodist Health System ("MHS"), which
outlines the basic terms upon which MHS, or a new company to be
formed by MHS ("NewCo"), shall acquire substantially all of the
Debtor's assets through a Court approved sale pursuant to section
363 of the Bankruptcy Code.  

The Debtors contend that the Debtor and MHS are currently engaged
in the process of negotiating and drafting the formal Asset
Purchase Agreement to include all terms of the sale.  They further
contend that among the conditions of the sale is not only the entry
of an order by the Court approving the sale, but the entry of an
order in the Landlord's chapter 11 case approving a sale of all
assets of the Landlord, including the premises, to MHS or its
designee.

The Debtor anticipates filing a motion in the immediate future
seeking approval of the proposed Sale and has previously made a
request for a joint status conference to be conducted in the case
and the Landlord's case for the purpose of considering adoption of
joint sales procedures in both cases.  The Debtors expect the sale
transaction to close during May 2016.

approval to real property, consisting of 80 acres, located in the

FPMC AUSTIN: Proposes to Sell Property for $100MM
-------------------------------------------------
FPMC Austin Realty Partners, LP, filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court a motion seeking approval of procedures governing the sale of
its property and other assets, and scheduling a hearing to consider
the sale of the Property.

The Debtor's primary asset is a medical campus property commonly
known as the Forrest Park Medical Center Hospital and Medical
Office Building located 8.5 acres on the south side of SH 45 North
between MoPac and I-35 in Round Rock, Texas.  Forrest Park Medical
Center consists of a short-term acute care hospital and medical
office building, together with a 445 stall adjacent parking
garage.

The Motion explains, "Since the Petition Date, the Debtor received
numerous expressions of interest to acquire the Property . . .
Considering the number of prospective purchasers, the identity of
those potential purchasers and the terms contained in their offers,
the Debtor engaged CBRE, Inc., and KOA Partners, LLC, to assist in
managing an informal sale process.  In order to restore
credibility, predictability and transparency to the sale process,
the Debtor decided to request approval from this Court an
abbreviated sale process."

To complete a sale of the Property, the Debtor proposes the
following process:

   -- In order to be a Qualified Buyer, a prospective purchaser
must deposit the sum of $10,000,000.  The Deposit must be received
no later than 1 business day prior to the Offer Deadline on the
date established by the Court in the Sale Procedures Order.

   -- The Debtor will submit a form of purchase and sale agreement
to the Court for approval not later than 24 hours prior to the
hearing on the Sale Procedures Motion.

   -- Each offer to purchase the Property must include (i) a
written and signed irrevocable and binding purchase and sale
agreement containing substantially the same terms and conditions as
the PSA, along with a blacklined copy of the Modified PSA showing
any revisions to the PSA.

   -- The Debtor, in consultation with the Lenders, shall determine
whether any Modified PSA that modifies the PSA in any material
respect is a Qualified Offer.

A Modified PSA shall: a. Provide for a purchase price in an amount
in excess of One Hundred Million Dollars ($100,000,000); b. Not
contain any contingencies for the Qualified Buyer’s ability to
obtain financing and shall be for all cash payable in full upon
closing; c. Not contain any condition to closing on the receipt of
any third party approval or any organizational approvals to make
its competing bid and to enter into and perform the Modified PSA
(excluding approvals required by the Bankruptcy Court or any
governmental or regulatory agency); d. Provide that the Qualified
Offer is irrevocable; e. Provide that $2,000,000 of the Deposit
will be non-refundable.

The Auction will commence with the highest Qualified Offer and
continue in increments of not less than $500,000 until each
Qualified Buyer makes its final offer. Any bid submitted after the
conclusion of the Auction shall not be considered for any purpose.
At the conclusion of the bidding, the Court will announce its
determination as to the person or entity submitting the highest or
best bid for the Property.

GEO GROUP: S&P Assigns 'BB+' Rating on New $900MM Revolver Facility
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its 'BB+' issue-level
rating to U.S.-based The GEO Group Inc.'s proposed new $900 million
revolving credit facility due 2019.  The recovery rating is '1',
indicating S&P's expectation for very high (90%-100%) recovery in

the existing revolving credit facility once it's terminated.

S&P's 'BB-' corporate credit rating and 'BB+' senior secured debt
rating are unchanged.  The outlook is stable.  However, S&P is
lowering its issue-level rating on the company's senior unsecured
debt to 'B+' from 'BB-'.  The recovery rating is now '5',
reflecting S&P's expectation for modest (in the higher half of the
10%-30% range) recovery in the event of a payment default.  The
downgrade of the unsecured debt reflects the incremental upsize in
the revolving credit facility that will increase the senior secured
debt claims and leave less value available to the unsecured
claims.

"Our ratings on GEO reflects our view that the company benefits
from high barriers to entry in the private corrections industry,
including significant capital spending to build and maintain
detention facilities, specialized knowledge and competence to win
contracts and manage the facilities, and a good market position in
a highly regulated industry.  We believe GEO will maintain its
current market share because of its ability to deliver higher
operating efficiency compared with public facilities. Nevertheless,
we believe the private corrections market will continue to
represent only about 10% of the total corrections market, as there
is little political or public support to grow the share of private
prisons.  Over the medium to long term, potential correctional
policy changes could reduce the U.S. government's demand for
private correctional services, especially if the policy changes are
aimed at reducing budget deficits at the various levels of
government.  In addition, the company will remain dependent on a
concentrated base of customers from various levels of the U.S. and
state governments.  The company's top three customers are
departments of the federal government (Bureau of Prisons,
Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and U.S. Marshal Services)
that account for approximately 45% of GEO's total revenue.  We
believe the company will continue to deliver moderate revenue and
profit growth, and consistent free cash flow to modestly improve
its credit ratios from current levels.  We forecast the ratio of
debt to EBITDA in the high-4x area and funds from operations to
debt in the mid-teens range in 2016 and 2017," S&P said.

HCSB FINANCIAL: RMB Capital, et al., Report 9.9% Stake
------------------------------------------------------
In a Schedule 13D filed with the Securities and Exchange
Commission, RMB Capital Management LLC, RMB Mendon Managers LLC,
RMB Capital Holdings, LLC, Mendon Capital Advisors Corp., and
Mendon Capital Master Fund Ltd., disclosed that as of April 11,
2016, they beneficially own 40,000,000 shares of common stock of
HCSB Financial Corporation representing 9.9 percent of the shares
outstanding.  A copy of the regulatory filing is available for free
at http://is.gd/KEx0AF

                      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.


HELIX ENERGY: Egan-Jones Cuts FC Sr. Unsecured Rating to CCC
------------------------------------------------------------
Egan-Jones Ratings Company lowered the foreign currency senior
unsecured rating on debt issued by Helix Energy Solutions Group
Inc. to CCC from BB on April 21, 2016.  EJR also lowered the
foreign currency commercial paper rating on the Company to C from
A2.

Helix Energy Solutions Inc., known as Cal Dive International prior
to 2006, is an American oil and gas services company headquartered
in Houston, Texas.



HERCULES OFFSHORE: S&P Lowers CCR to 'CCC-', Outlook Negative
-------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its corporate credit
rating on Houston-based Hercules Offshore Inc. to 'CCC-' from
'CCC+'.  The outlook is negative.

At the same time, S&P lowered the issue-level rating on the
company's secured debt to 'CCC-' from 'CCC+'.  The recovery rating
on the debt issue remains '3', indicating S&P's expectation of
meaningful (30% to 50%, higher end of the range) recovery in the
event of a payment default.

"The rating action follows the company's disclosure that it has
entered into a forbearance agreement with its lenders, and our
belief that there is a high likelihood of default or restructuring
over the next six months," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst
Kevin Kwok.  "During the forbearance period, the company will be
unable to access the $200 million in escrow related to the final
payment on the Hercules Highlander rig, which could potentially
delay delivery of the new build and impact the company's contract
for this rig," he added.

The outlook is negative, reflecting S&P's belief that there is a
high likelihood of default within the next six months, absent
unanticipated significantly favorable changes in the issuer's
circumstances.

S&P would lower the ratings if the company entered into a
restructuring agreement or were unable to meet its debt service
obligations.

S&P could consider a positive rating action if the company were
able to resolve the compliance issue with the affirmative
covenants.



HOLLY ENERGY: S&P Raises CCR to 'BB+', Outlook Stable
-----------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services raised its corporate credit
rating on Dallas-based Holly Energy Partners L.P. to 'BB+' from
'BB'.  The outlook is stable.

At the same time, S&P assigned its 'BBB' rating to the
partnership's senior secured revolving credit facility.  The
recovery rating on the debt is '1', indicating S&P's expectation
for very high (90%-100%) recovery in the event of a default.

In addition, S&P affirmed its 'BB' rating on the senior unsecured
debt.  S&P revised its recovery rating on this debt to '5' from
'4'.  The recovery rating of '5' indicates S&P's expectation for
modest recovery (10% to 30%, in the lower end of the range) in the
event of a payment default.

"The rating action reflects our reassessment of the strategic link
between Holly Energy Partners and its general partner,
HollyFrontier, given HollyFrontier's renewed focus on the
importance of Holly Energy Partners to its overall growth
strategy," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Michael Grande.
The partnership continues to focus on growing fee-based cash flow
through increasing its level of acquisitions with parent
HollyFrontier and third parties.  In 2015 and 2016, the partnership
has taken a more active role on this front as it closed on multiple
transactions including a naptha fractionation processing unit,
Frontier Pipeline, crude oil tankage at the Tulsa refinery, and
crude tanks adjacent to the El Dorado Refinery.  S&P expects the
partnership's 2016 capital spending budget to be modest--around $75
million to $95 million--with projects focusing on low-risk logistic
assets serving HollyFrontier's refineries including the Arteria-El
Paso Product Pipeline and Tulsa Rail Storage.  Once complete, these
acquisitions, along with organic expansions, could increase Holly
Energy Partners' run-rate EBITDA by more than 25%.

The stable rating outlook reflects S&P's expectation that Holly
Energy Partners' debt leverage generally will be between 3.5x and
4.5x, as the partnership continues to grow organically and
undertake third-party acquisitions, while maintaining adequate
liquidity and a comfortable cushion in its distribution coverage
ratio.

The most likely downside scenario would stem from a downgrade to
HollyFrontier, which would likely result in a Holly Energy Partners
downgrade.  S&P could lower the rating on HollyFrontier if it has
operational difficulties, does a leveraging transaction, pursues
less conservative financial policies, or if S&P believes that the
company's historical profitability will become less sustainable.
Absent a downgrade to HollyFrontier, S&P could lower the ratings on
Holly Energy Partners if the partnership assumes more commodity
price exposure or S&P expects Holly Energy Partners' debt leverage
will rise above 4.5x on a sustained basis.

S&P views an upgrade as unlikely at this time as it views Holly
Energy Partners' current size and scale, as well as the fact that
it derives a significant portion of its cash flow from parent
HollyFrontier, as limiting factors.  S&P also would not
automatically raise its rating on Holly Energy Partners if S&P
raised the rating on HollyFrontier to 'BBB', unless S&P believed
Holly Energy Partners' stand-alone credit profile was 'bb+'.



INDICON INC: Dismissal of Vanguard's Suit v. Non-Debtors Affirmed

J. CREW: Bank Debt Trades at 22% Off
------------------------------------
Participations in a syndicated loan under which J. Crew is a
borrower traded in the secondary market at 78.48
cents-on-the-dollar during the week ended Friday, April 22, 2016,
according to data compiled by LSTA/Thomson Reuters MTM Pricing.
This represents a decrease of 1.39 percentage points from the
previous week.  J. Crew pays 300 basis points above LIBOR to borrow
under the $1.56 billion facility. The bank loan matures on Feb. 27,
2021 and carries Moody's B2 rating and Standard & Poor's B- rating.

JARDEN CORP: Moody's Withdraws Ba3 Corporate Family Rating
----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service withdrew the ratings of Jarden
Corporation including the Ba3 Corporate Family Rating and the
Ba3-PD Probability of Default Rating.

                        RATINGS RATIONALE

This action follows Newell Rubbermaid's completion of its
acquisition of Jarden and an exchange offer for Jarden debt in
which most but not all of the Jarden notes were exchanged for
Newell notes.  Moody's understands that Newell will not guarantee
the remaining Jarden bonds, nor will it provide stand-alone
financial statements for Jarden.  As a result, Moody's withdrew all
ratings of Jarden due to the lack of sufficient financial
information.

Withdrawals:

Jarden Corporation

  Corporate Family Rating, Withdrawn, previously rated Ba3;

  Probability of Default Rating, Withdrawn, previously rated Ba3-

Judge Geraldine Mund of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the
Central District of California, San Fernando Valley Division,

LAKE MICHIGAN BEACH: BCL Loses Bid to Dismiss Ch. 11 Case
---------------------------------------------------------
Judge Timothy A. Barnes of the United States Bankruptcy Court for

motion filed by BCL-Bridge Funding LLC which sought dismissal for
cause under section 1112(b) of the Bankruptcy Code of the chapter
11 case of Lake Michigan Beach Pottawattamie Resort LLC.

BCL had alleged that because the debtor filed its bankruptcy
petition on the eve of foreclosure and without BCL's approval as a

dismissed.

failed to show that the debtor filed the case in bad faith.

                      About LinnCo LLC

Houston-based LinnCo, LLC is a Delaware limited liability company
whose initial sole purpose was to own units representing limited
liability company interests in its affiliate, Linn Energy LLC (LINN
Energy).  LINN Energy is an independent oil and natural gas company
that trades on the NASDAQ Global Select Market (NASDAQ) under the
symbol "LINE."

As of Dec. 31, 2015, Linnco LLC had $37.4 million in total assets,
$30.4 million in total liabilities, all current, and $7 million in
shareholders' equity.

KPMG LLP, in Houston, Texas, issued a "going concern" qualification
in its report on the consolidated financial statements for the year
ended Dec. 31, 2015, citing that the Company had income taxes
payable of approximately $30 million and cash of approximately $11
million.  The Company's only significant asset is its interest in
LINN Energy units and the Company's cash flow, which was
historically used to pay dividends to the Company's shareholders,
is completely dependent upon the ability of LINN Energy to make
distributions to its unitholders.  In October 2015, LINN Energy
suspended the payment of its distribution.  Accordingly, the
uncertainty associated with the Company's ability to meet its
obligations as they become due raises substantial doubt about its
ability to continue as a going concern, the auditors noted.

MID-STATES SUPPLY: Caterpillar Financial Seeks Adequate Protection
------------------------------------------------------------------
Caterpillar Financial Services Corporation asks the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the Western District of Missouri to order Mid-States
Supply Company, Inc., to provide adequate protection.

Mid-States Supply Company entered into a finance lease with
Caterpillar in which Caterpillar agreed to acquire and lease the
following units to Debtor: Caterpillar TH350B Telescopic Handler,
Serial No. SLD01603; Caterpillar TH350B Telescopic Handler, Serial
No. SLD01619 ("Handler"); and Caterpillar P5000 LIFT TRUCK, Serial
No. AT3512795 ("Lift Truck").  Pursuant to the terms of the Lease,
Caterpillar leased the Units to Debtor for a total monthly rent of
$1,205, and the Debtor granted Caterpillar a continuing security
interest and lien in, to, on, and against the Units as security for
any indebtedness to Caterpillar.

Caterpillar avers that the Debtor defaulted on the Lease prior to
November 24, 2015, by failing to make its monthly rent payments. As
of the Petition Date, the Debtor was indebted to Caterpillar under
the Lease in the amount of $2,082.15 on the Handler and $851.25 on
the Lift Truck, for a total due and owing on the Units of $2,933.
Caterpillar adds that the Units have an approximate value of
$27,900.

"Caterpillar's interest in the property decreases in value pursuant
to the stay in that Caterpillar is deprived of use of the Units,
which continuously depreciate in value through Debtor's use, while
not receiving any compensation pursuant to the Lease...
Accordingly, pursuant to Section 361(1) of the Bankruptcy Code,
Caterpillar is entitled to adequate protection payments from the
Debtor in the form of monthly installment payments in the amount of
$1,204.86 from and after the Petition Date to compensate it for the
Debtor's continued use of the Units," Caterpillar avers.

                  Mid-States Supply's Objection

The Debtor relates that under its Supplemental Sale Motion, it
sought approval of the sale of substantially all of its assets to
SSC Mid States Supply, Inc. pursuant to their Asset Purchase
Agreement.  The Debtor further relates that the Court had approved
its Bid Procedures and that under the Bid Procedures Order, the
auction was scheduled for April 11, 2016, with the Sale Hearing
scheduled for April 13, 2016.

The Debtor tells the Court that depending on the results of the
Auction, it reserves all rights with respect to the relief sought
in the Motion and the Collateral.

NEURALSTEM INC: Receives NASDAQ Bid Price Deficiency Notice
-----------------------------------------------------------
Neuralstem, Inc., a biopharmaceutical company focused on the
development of central nervous system therapies based on its neural
stem cell technology, on April 21 disclosed that on April 20, 2016
it received a written notice from the NASDAQ Stock Market LLC that
the Company is not in compliance with NASDAQ Listing Rule
5550(a)(2), as the minimum bid price of the Company's common stock
has been below $1.00 per share for 30 consecutive business days.
The notice has no immediate effect on the listing of the Company's
common stock, and its common stock will continue to trade on the
NASDAQ Capital Market under the symbol "CUR" at this time.

In accordance with NASDAQ Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), the Company
has a period of 180 calendar days, or until October 17, 2016, to
regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement.  To
regain compliance, the closing bid price of the Company's common
stock must meet or exceed $1.00 per share for at least ten
consecutive business days during this 180 calendar day period.  

In the event the Company does not regain compliance by October 17,
2016, the Company may be eligible for an additional 180 calendar
day grace period if it meets the initial listing standards, with
the exception of bid price, for the NASDAQ Capital Market, and
provides written notice to NASDAQ of its intention to cure the
deficiency during the second compliance period, by effecting a
reverse stock split, if necessary.  If the Company does not regain
compliance within the allotted compliance period(s), including any
extensions that may be granted by NASDAQ, NASDAQ will provide
notice that the Company's common stock will be subject to
delisting.  The Company would then be entitled to appeal the
determination to a NASDAQ Listing Qualifications Panel and request
a hearing.

                      About Neuralstem

Neuralstem's patented technology enables the commercial-scale
production of multiple types of central nervous system stem cells,
which are being developed as potential therapies for many central
nervous system diseases and conditions.

Neuralstem's ability to generate neural stem cell lines from human
hippocampus, which were used for systematic chemical screening for
neurogenesis effect, has led to the discovery and patenting of
molecules that Neuralstem believes may stimulate the brain's
capacity to generate new neurons, potentially reversing
pathophysiologies associated with certain central nervous system
(CNS) conditions.

The Company has completed Phase 1a and 1b trials evaluating
NSI-189, its first neurogenic small molecule product candidate, for
the treatment of major depressive disorder (MDD), and is expecting
to initiate a Phase 2 efficacy study for MDD in 2016.

Neuralstem's first stem cell product candidate, NSI-566, a spinal
cord-derived neural stem cell line, is under development for
treatment of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).  Neuralstem has
completed two clinical studies, in a total of thirty patients,
which met primary safety endpoints.  In addition to ALS, NSI-566 is
also in a Phase 1 study to treat paralysis due to chronic spinal
cord injury, as well as in a Phase 1 study to treat paralysis from
ischemic stroke.


NFP CORP: Moody's Affirms B3 Corporate Family Rating
----------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has affirmed the B3 corporate family
rating of NFP Corp. following the announcement that NFP will sell
its Advisor Services unit to funds managed by Stone Point Capital
LLC.  NFP's ultimate parent will retain a minority ownership stake
in Advisor Services, which will change its name to Kestra
Financial.  Through long-term reciprocal agreements, Kestra will
serve as the preferred broker/dealer and registered investment
advisor for NFP.

In the same action, Moody's has affirmed the ratings of NFP's
senior secured credit facilities at B1 and senior unsecured debt at
Caa2.  The rating agency has changed NFP's rating outlook to stable
from negative based on its reduced financial leverage after giving
effect to completed acquisitions and management contract buyouts
(MBOs).  The sale of Kestra, expected to close in mid-2016, will
initially diminish NFP's revenues and diversification, but will
provide significant cash to be invested in its ongoing business
segments.

                        RATINGS RATIONALE

NFP's ratings reflect its expertise and favorable market position
in insurance brokerage, particularly providing employee benefit and
property and casualty consulting and brokerage services to
mid-sized businesses, according to Moody's.  With the divestment of
Kestra, which accounted for about 30% of NFP's 2015 revenues, the
company's business will focus on brokerage of employee benefits and
property & casualty insurance for middle market and larger
businesses, and private client insurance and wealth management
solutions for high net worth individuals.  NFP's business is
diversified across products, clients and regions primarily in the
US.  These strengths are tempered by the company's high financial
leverage and moderate interest coverage. The rating agency expects
that NFP will continue to pursue a combination of organic revenue
growth and acquisitions, the latter giving rise to integration and
contingent risks.

The rating agency added that the Kestra sale will provide a healthy
amount of cash that can be reinvested in the company, applied
toward EBITDA-generating MBOs and acquisitions, and/or used to
repay lenders.  Future acquisitions will focus on NFP's Insurance
Brokerage and Consulting business which, after giving effect to the
sale of Kestra, will consist of three segments: Corporate Benefits
(about 58% of revenues), Property & Casualty (19%), and Individual
Solutions (23%).  The first two segments mainly serve mid-sized
businesses and some larger corporations, while the Individual
Solutions segment provides life insurance, annuities and wealth
management services to high-net-worth individuals.

Moody's expects that NFP will have a debt-to-EBITDA ratio in the
7.0x-7.5x range over the next 12-18 months, with (EBITDA - capex)
interest coverage of 1.5x-2.0x.

Factors that could lead to an upgrade include: (i) debt-to-EBITDA
ratio below 6x, (ii) (EBITDA - capex) coverage of interest
exceeding 2x, (iii) free-cash-flow-to-debt ratio exceeding 5%, and
(iv) successful integration of acquisitions.

Factors that could lead to a rating downgrade include: (i)
debt-to-EBITDA ratio remaining above 7.5x on a sustained basis,
(ii) (EBITDA - capex) coverage of interest below 1.2x, or (iii)
free-cash-flow-to-debt ratio below 2%.

Moody's has affirmed these ratings of NFP Corp. (with loss given
default (LGD) assessments):

  Corporate family rating B3;

  Probability of default rating B3-PD;

  $135 million senior secured revolving credit facility maturing
   in July 2018, rated B1 (LGD3) (undrawn);

  $1.1 billion senior secured term loan maturing in July 2020,
   rated B1 (LGD3);

  $575 million senior unsecured notes maturing in July 2021, rated

   Caa2 (LGD5).

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Insurance
Brokers & Service Companies published in December 2015.

Based in New York City, NFP is a leading insurance broker and
consultant that provides employee benefits, property & casualty,
retirement, and individual insurance and wealth management
solutions to middle market companies, high net worth individuals
and independent financial advisors.  The company generated revenue
of $1.3 billion in 2015.

IDB-led lenders group.  The lawsuit was assigned as Case No.
14-08231.  On Aug. 20, 2014, the committee succeeded Oak Rock as
the plaintiff in the 2013 lawsuits, according to court filings.

OLD CANAL FINANCIAL: Sarsentone Had Standing to Pursue Claims
-------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Michael W. Fitzgerald of the United States District Court for
the Central District of California affirmed the bankruptcy court's
order clarifying and providing instruction with respect to its
order dated November 5, 2009 and issued on August 6, 2015.

Judge Fitzgerald held that the bankruptcy court did not exceed its
authority or err in its interpretation that, under the settlement
agreement between the Chapter 7 Trustee and Sarsenstone Corp.,
Sarsenstone had standing to pursue claims against the appellants
Michael W. Griffith, Foreclosure Consultants, Inc., and Thomas W.
Hood as both the Master Pool Trustee and the Liquidating Agent.
The judge further stated that Sarsenstone's failure to obtain the
$1 million bond did not affect its status as the Master Pool
Trustee because, under California law, the bond was not a condition
precedent.  Finally, Judge Fitzgerald held that the bankruptcy
court did not err in concluding that its previous order from 2009
incorporated the settlement agreement.

The case is IN RE: OLD CANAL FINANCIAL CORPORATION OLD CANAL
FINANCIAL CORPORATION ET AL. v. SARSENSTONE CORPORATION ET AL, Case
No. SACV-15-1368-MWF, No. SACV-15-1475-MWF (C.D. Cal.).

PACIFIC EXPLORATION: Clarifies "Court Supervised Process" as CCAA
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Pacific Exploration & Production Corporation clarified that the
"court-supervised process" to be used to implement the
comprehensive financial restructuring referred to in the Company's
previous press releases is anticipated to be the Companies'
Creditors Arrangement Act (CCAA), Canadian federal legislation that
allows financially troubled corporations the opportunity to
restructure their financial affairs (together with appropriate
proceedings in Colombia under Law 1116 and in the United States).
Readers are referred to such previous press releases for details of
the proposed restructuring transaction, including key terms and
conditions thereof.

              About Pacific Exploration & Production

Pacific Exploration & Production Corp. is a Canadian public company
and a leading explorer and producer of natural gas and crude oil,
with operations focused in Latin America.  The Company has a
diversified portfolio of assets with interests in more than 70
exploration and production blocks in various countries including
Colombia, Peru, Guatemala, Brazil, Guyana and Belize. The Company's
strategy is focused on sustainable growth in production & reserves
and cash generation.  

The Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America, on Feb. 23, 2016,
reported that Fitch Ratings says that the agency could downgrade
its ratings on Pacific Exploration and Production Corp. (Pacific;
Long-term Foreign and Local Currency Issuer Default Ratings of 'C')
to restricted default (RD).  This could occur after the expiration
of the recently negotiated extension with bondholders of the time
in which to declare principal due and payable on certain notes.
Fitch considers the extension of multiple waivers or forbearance
periods upon a payment default a restricted default given they
represent a material reduction in terms compared with the original
contractual terms.  Furthermore, the extension of multiple waivers
can be interpreted as a tool that is being conducted in order to
avoid bankruptcy.

                        *     *     *


On April 7, 2016, the TCR reported that Fitch Ratings downgraded
Pacific Exploration and Production Corp.'s (Pacific) Foreign and
Local Currency Long-term Issuer Default Ratings (IDRs) to
restricted default 'RD' from 'C'.  Concurrently, Fitch affirmed the
'C/RR4' long-term rating on Pacific's outstanding senior unsecured
debt issuances totaling approximately USD4 billion with final
maturities in 2019 through and 2025.

On Jan. 21, 2016, the TCR reported that Moody's Investors Service
has downgraded Pacific Exploration & Production Corp. (Pacific
E&P)'s corporate family rating and senior unsecured debt ratings to
C from Caa3.

The TCR, on Jan. 20, 2016, reported that Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services said it lowered its long-term corporate credit and
issue-level ratings on Pacific Exploration and Production Corp.
(Pacific) to 'CC' from 'CCC+'.  S&P also removed the rating from
CreditWatch with negative implications.  The outlook is negative.

On Jan. 14, 2016, Pacific announced that it has elected to utilize
the 30 day grace period rather than make the interest payments due
on Jan. 19, 2016 and Jan. 26, 2016 of about $65 million.  Although
the company is still current on those obligations, S&P expects
default to be a virtual certainty.


PACIFIC EXPLORATION: Retains Kingsdale as Proxy Solicitation Agent
------------------------------------------------------------------
Pacific Exploration & Production Corporation on April 22 disclosed
that it has retained Kingsdale Shareholder Services, North
America's preeminent shareholder services firm, to act as its
strategic advisor and proxy solicitation agent in relation to the
previously-announced comprehensive restructuring agreement among
the Company, certain holders (the "Noteholders") of the Company's
senior unsecured notes (the "Notes"), certain of the lenders under
the Company's credit facilities (the "Lenders") and The Catalyst
Capital Group Inc. ("Catalyst") to effect a comprehensive financial
restructuring (the "Restructuring Transaction") that will
significantly reduce debt, improve liquidity, and best position the
Company to navigate the current oil price environment.

As previously announced, the Company has entered into a support
agreement (the "Support Agreement ") with: (i) certain members
("Supporting Noteholders ") of an ad hoc committee of Noteholders
(the "Ad Hoc Committee "), (ii) certain of the Lenders (the
"Supporting Bank Lenders ", and together with the Supporting
Noteholders, the "Supporting Creditors "), and Catalyst in
connection with the Restructuring Transaction.

The Supporting Creditors in the aggregate hold approximately 49% of
the aggregate principal amount of the debt (being approximately
U.S.$5.3 billion) held by the Noteholders and Lenders.  Subject to
the terms and conditions of the Support Agreement, the Supporting
Creditors have agreed to support and vote in favour of the
Restructuring Transaction.

The key features of the Restructuring Transaction have been
provided in the Company's news release of April 20, 2016, a copy of
which is posted on the Company's website at www.pacific.energy

Under the terms of the Restructuring Transaction, Noteholders who
have signed and returned a joinder to the Support Agreement on or
before 5:00 p.m. (Toronto/ New York time) on April 29, 2016 in
accordance with the procedures set out in the Support Agreement and
the joinder shall ALSO receive their pro rata share of 2.2% of the
common shares of the reorganized Company (the "Supporting
Noteholder Consideration").

All Noteholders are encouraged to sign the Support Agreement in the
manner set out below and must do so on or before 5:00 p.m.
(Toronto/ New York time) on April 29, 2016 be entitled to receive
their pro rata share of the Supporting Noteholder Consideration.

Noteholders with questions or wishing to sign and return the
Support Agreement are encouraged to contact Kingsdale Shareholder
Services at 1-877-659-1821 toll-free in North America or call
collect at 1-416-867-2272 outside of North America or by email at

PROCEDURE TO OBTAIN SUPPORTING NOTEHOLDER CONSIDERATION

All Noteholders are able and encouraged to sign the Support
Agreement by execution of a joinder thereto.  A copy of the Support
Agreement and the joinder are available on the Company's website at
www.pacific.energy

Under the terms of the Restructuring Transaction, Noteholders who
have signed and returned a joinder to the Support Agreement on or
before 5:00 p.m. (Toronto/ New York time) on April 29, 2016 in
accordance with the procedures set out in the Support Agreement and
the joinder shall receive their pro rata share of the Supporting
Noteholder Consideration.  The Supporting Noteholder Consideration
shall be payable subject to, and only upon, consummation of the
Restructuring Transaction.  If a Supporting Noteholder otherwise
entitled to the Supporting Noteholder Consideration transfers (in
accordance with the Support Agreement) the Notes in respect of
which such Supporting Noteholder Consideration would have been
payable, the transferee of such Notes shall be entitled to that
portion of the Supporting Noteholder Consideration attributable to
the transferred Notes. The Supporting Noteholder Consideration
shall not be payable if the Supporting Noteholder terminates its
obligations under the Support Agreement.  The amount of the
consideration will be funded from the pro rata portion of the
Affected Creditors Consideration otherwise allocated to the
Noteholders as affected creditors under the Restructuring
Transaction and will not impact the pro rata recovery of the
lenders under the Company's credit facilities, under the terms of
the Restructuring Transaction.

PACIFIC SUNWEAR: Proposes to Implement KEIP and KERP
----------------------------------------------------
Pacific Sunwear of California, Inc., and its affiliated debtors ask
the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware, to
authorize the implementation of their Key Employee Incentive
Program ("KEIP") and Key Employee Retention Program ("KERP").

"The Debtors' ability to maintain their business operations,
preserve the value of their assets, and maximize stakeholder
recoveries through a successful and expedient restructuring process
hinges on the Debtors' ability to incentivize and retain key
employees during this critical period. Accordingly, the Debtors
seek to implement a postpetition incentive program to motivate key
employees to advance the Debtors' business and restructuring goals
during the pendency of these Cases as well as a postpetition
retention program to retain important and hard to replace,
non-senior management employees during these Cases," the Debtors
contend.

The proposed Key Employee Incentive Program contains, among others,
the following relevant terms:

     (1) The participants in the proposed KEIP are nine insider
employees that have a significant impact on the Debtor's short-term
operational performance and ability to achieve certain strategic
goals.

     (2) KEIP Participants will be compensated based upon achieving
the following operational and strategic goals:

          (i) One half of the payment is tied to consummation of a
chapter 11 plan.  100% of this amount will be awarded if a plan is
consummated by September 30, 2016; 80% will be paid if a plan is
consummated by October 31, 2016; and 60% will be paid if a plan is
consummated by November 30, 2016;

         (ii) One quarter of the payment is tied to compliance with
the DIP Facility cash receipts covenant for the pendency of the
Cases; and

        (iii) The final quarter of the payment is tied to
compliance with the DIP Facility total disbursements covenant for
the pendency of the Cases.

     (3) KEIP Participants will be paid in two equal cash payments
with the first payment made no later than 15 days after the
effective date of confirmation of a chapter 11 plan and the second
payment to be made no later than Dec. 15, 2016.  The aggregate
proposed payments for the KEIP Participants is approximately
$1,812,100, with individual proposed maximum payouts ranging from
28% to 75% of base salary.

     (4) If a KEIP Participant voluntarily leaves or is terminated
for cause within 60 days of earning a KEIP award, he or she will be
required to return the amount awarded.  If a KEIP Participant is
terminated without cause prior to the Effective Date and prior to
completing his or her personal goals, he or she will receive the
award on a prorated basis, considering the proportion of time from
the Petition Date to the date the award is earned.

The proposed Key Employee Retention Program, contains, among
others, the following relevant terms:

     (1) The participants in the proposed KERP are 69 valuable,
hard to replace, non-senior management employees, ranging from
managers to vice presidents. The KERP Participants represent less
than 1% of the Debtors' employees.

     (2)  Cash awards range from 7.4% to 29.3% of base salary. 60
of the Participants would be compensated at 7% to 20% of base
salary. The average base salary for these Participants is
approximately $125,100, for an average potential KERP payout of
approximately $16,300 for each of these 60 employees. Nine of the
Participants would be compensated at 21% to 29% of base salary. The
average base salary for these Participants is approximately
$197,700, for an average potential KERP payout of approximately
$47,800 for these nine employees.

     (3) The total potential KERP payout is approximately
$1,505,000, inclusive of a $100,000 discretionary pool, which
provides the Debtors necessary resources for future allocations to
certain non-senior management deemed to be important to the
reorganization process, but who were not initially included amongst
the original KERP Participants. Gary H. Schoenfeld, PacSun's CEO
and President, will determine which, if any, important, non-senior
management who were not originally designated as KERP Participants
will ultimately participate in the $100,000 discretionary pool. The
amount of the individual payments to be made to these
later-designated KERP Participants will be determined by Mr.
Schoenfeld, and will not, in the aggregate, exceed the $100,000
discretionary pool.

     (4) Participants will be compensated for remaining employed
with the Debtors through 60 days after the Effective Date. KERP
Participants will be paid in cash under the plan no later than 15
days after the Effective Date. If any KERP Participant voluntarily
leaves or is terminated for cause within 60 days of earning the
KERP award, he or she will be required to return the amount awarded
to him or her. If a KERP Participant is terminated without cause
prior to the Effective Date, he or she will receive the full KERP
payment on the existing payout date.

     (5) KERP Participants are not entitled to participate in the
KEIP, or any other postpetition incentive plans.

"In order to effectively and efficiently accomplish the proposed
restructuring and maximize recovery for all stakeholders, the
Debtors determined that formulating and implementing the KEIP and
KERP is in the best interests of their estates and all parties in
interest.  The KEIP and KERP will help ensure (i) that the Debtors'
key executives, who are essential to the Debtors' dual-track
reorganization and marketing efforts are properly motivated to
maximize the value of their estates and (ii) that the non-insider
KERP Participants will remain with the Debtors throughout the
process to help manage the Debtors' ongoing operations and the
administration of the estates and to help ensure a successful
outcome in these Cases," the Debtors aver.

PEABODY ENERGY: To Sell Prairie Energy Campus for $57MM
--------------------------------------------------------
Debtor Peabody Electricity, LLC ("PE") on April 22, 2016, filed a
motion asking the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of
Missouri to (a) authorize PE to assume the Prairie State Interest
Purchase and Sale Agreement, dated January 19, 2016, by and between
PE and Wabash Valley Power Association, Inc., and (b) approve the
Prairie State sale.

The Prairie State Energy Campus ("Prairie State") is an electric
generating facility that uses reserves from its adjacent coal mine
to supply the generating facility.  Currently, nearly 95% of
Prairie State's owners are non-profit utilities.  Debtor Lively
Grove Energy Partners, LLC's ("LGEP") sole asset is a 5.06%
participation interest in Prairie State and a prorate portion of
related Prairie State project assets.

On Jan. 19, 2016, PE entered into the Prairie State Agreement with
Wabash.  Under the Prairie State Agreement, among other things, PE
agreed to sell 100% of its ownership interest in LGEP (the "LGEP
Membership Interest"), whose sole asset is the 5.06% undivided
ownership interest (which includes certain Prairie State assets) in
Prairie State (the "Prairie State Ownership Interest"), to Wabash
for $57 million in cash and assumption of certain liabilities,
subject to certain post-closing adjustments to reconcile certain
revenues, expenditures and expenses attributable to the period
prior to the closing of the transaction (collectively, the "Prairie
State Sale").  

All necessary regulatory approvals for the Prairie State Sale have
been obtained: (i) on April 6, 2016, the Federal Energy Regulatory
Commission ("FERC") approved the Prairie State Sale and (ii) on
April 13, 2016, the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission ("IURC")
approved the Prairie State Sale.  With these approvals, PE and
Wabash are prepared to promptly close the Prairie State Sale upon
entry of a Court order approving the sale.

Among other things, the terms of the Prairie State Agreement
included the following:

   * Purchase and Sale.  Wabash agrees to purchase and accept
delivery of the LGEP Membership Interest from PE.  PE agrees to
sell, convey, assign, transfer and deliver the LGEP Membership
Interest to Wabash free and clear of any encumbrances, other than
those permitted by the Prairie State Agreement and applicable law.


   * Purchase Price.  Wabash agrees to pay $57 million in cash (by
wire transfer of immediately available funds) to PE under the
Prairie State Agreement on account of the LGEP Membership Interest.


   * Covenant Concerning Regulatory Approval.  Wabash and PE will
cooperate in any filings, notifications, reports and information
concerning any governmental authority in connection with the
Prairie State Sale, including, among others, approval from FERC and
IURC.  The parties also agree to use their respective good faith
efforts to cause any applicable waiting periods to expire and any
objections to the Prairie State Sale to be withdrawn before the
closing date.  At the time of closing, all necessary regulatory
approvals must be issued and be in full force.

   * Matching Right.  Pursuant to Section 6.5 of the Prairie State
Agreement, PE gave notice of Wabash's purchase price to other
owners of Prairie State, none of which exercised their right to
match the terms and conditions of the Prairie State Sale.

   * Releases.  Subject to the parties' indemnification obligations
contained in Section 9 of the Prairie State Agreement, Wabash
agrees to release PE and its affiliates from any liability relating
to the LGEP Membership Interest and the Prairie State Ownership
Interest at the time of closing.

   * Project-Related Liabilities.  Wabash agrees to assume at
closing of the Prairie State Sale the obligation to pay, discharge
or perform, when due, all liabilities or obligations of LGEP,
excluding any alleged liabilities arising from claims of third
parties based on actions or representations by PE in connection
with the development of Prairie State prior to the execution of the
Prairie State Agreement.  PE and Wabash agree that the
Project-Related Liabilities will not include any alleged
liabilities arising from claims of third parties based on actions
or representations by PEC or any of its affiliates in connection
with the development of Prairie State prior to execution of the
Participation Agreement.  Wabash agrees to take all necessary
actions to effectuate the release of PE and its affiliates from any
liability relating to the LGEP Membership Interest and the Prairie
State Ownership Interest.

   * Seller's Limited Indemnification.  PE agrees to indemnify,
defend and hold harmless Wabash and its successors and assigns from
and against any loss, liability, damage, cost or expense sustained
or incurred as a result of, or caused by a breach of warranty,
representation or covenant by PE in the Prairie State
Agreement or any applicable FERC refund or applicable interest
required by FERC for 2015-2016 year as a result of three
administrative complaints.  PEC will provide a guaranty of PE's
obligations at closing of the Prairie State Sale.

PEC selected Marathon Capital, LLC as the investment banker and
financial advisor in connection with PE's efforts to sell the LGEP
Membership Interest.  Pursuant to the July 30, 2015, engagement
letter between Marathon and PEC, Marathon conducted an extensive
sales and marketing process to identify potential buyers.  Starting
in mid-October 2015, and continuing through mid-November 2015,
Marathon contacted or reached out to approximately 75 potential
purchasers and provided them with, among other things, sales and
marketing materials describing the Prairie State Ownership Interest
and Prairie State's operations.  Ultimately, five entities signed a
nondisclosure agreement with two eventually submitting a formal
offer to purchase and another group of entities collectively
providing Marathon with a verbal purchase offer.  The offers
Marathon received for the Prairie State Ownership Interest ranged
from as low as $10 million to the Wabash cash bid of $57 million.
The Sale Process concluded in early December 2015 with PE's
selection of Wabash as the buyer that provided the highest and best
value to PE based its valuation of the LGEP Membership Interest
(among other relevant factors).

Pursuant to the Participation Agreement between LGEP and the other
owners of Prairie State, dated as of September 28, 2007, each
participant in the Prairie State project had the right to match the
terms and conditions of the Prairie State Agreement.  In accordance
with Section 13.2 of the Participation Agreement, on Dec. 15, 2015,
PE notified the other Prairie State participants of the Prairie
State Agreement of their right to match the terms and conditions of
Wabash's offer for a period of 60 days.  This period ended on Feb.
18, 2016, without any exercise of matching rights by any Prairie
State participant.

Since Feb. 18, 2016, neither PE nor Marathon has received any
further indication of interest in purchasing either the LGEP
Membership Interest or the Prairie State Ownership Interest from
other possible purchasers or the other Prairie State participants.

PERFORMANT BUSINESS: Moody's Affirms B3 CFR, Outlook Negative
-------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service affirmed the B3 Corporate Family Rating
of Performant Business Services, Inc., its B3 senior secured debt
rating, and its Caa1-PD Probability of Default rating.
Additionally, Moody's downgraded Performant's Speculative Grade
Liquidity rating to SGL-3, from SGL-2, and changed the ratings
outlook to negative, from stable.

Affirmations:

Issuer: Performant Business Services, Inc.

  Corporate Family Rating (Local Currency), B3 Affirmed

  Senior Secured Bank Credit Facilities, maturing 2017, 2018, B3
   Affirmed

  Probability of Default Rating, Caa1-PD, affirmed

Downgrade:

  Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating, Downgraded to SGL-3, from
   SGL-2

  Outlook, Changed to Negative, from Stable

                        RATINGS RATIONALE

The B3 CFR takes into account the impact of decisions by the
Department of Education over the past two years that will cause
revenues in Performant's largest operating segment to contract
meaningfully again in 2016, as they did in 2015.  While there was
an expected mid-2015 spike in leverage, to 5.0 times on a Moody's
adjusted basis, the company's aggressive cost cutting in response
to both a diminished student loan business and the dramatically
reduced scope of audits on behalf of the Centers for Medicare and
Medicaid ("CMS") has enabled Performant to keep leverage in check.
At year-end it stood at 3.9 times.  However, with the potential for
another, roughly 20% falloff in revenues this year, and the halving
of EBITDA, Performant could see leverage rise back to approximately
5.0 times.  This leverage level, along with Performant's very small
scale and heavy customer concentration, is consistent with the B3
rating category.

The negative outlook reflects not only expectations for a
significant decline in revenues and profits this year, but also
pronounced uncertainty regarding both the likelihood and the timing
of reinstatements of contracts for Performant's DoE and CMS
businesses.  The negative outlook also reflects the company's
diminishing but still adequate liquidity position, and uncertainty
over timing of the funding of reserves established to meet claims
appeals pursued successfully by healthcare provider counterparties.
Concerns over high leverage and diminished operating performance
are allayed partially by the company's continued strong cash
balance, which represents 71% of its $70 million debt obligation.

Ratings could be downgraded if:1) the falloff in student loan
revenues fails to reverse itself; 2) the failure to get the CMS
contract renewed compels Performant to abandon its CMS collections
business, or; 3) liquidity deteriorates.  While unlikely in the
near term, given the negative outlook, a ratings upgrade could
occur if:1) there is a turnaround in the student loan business,
resulting, most probably, from a reinstatement of the DoE contract,
and; 2) the CMS contract is renewed with audit volumes showing a
healthy rebound, which, together with a reinvigorated student loan
business, would bolster profits and bring leverage below 4.5 times
for a sustained period.

Performant Business Services, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of
publicly traded Performant Financial Corporation (PFMT; Nasdaq), is
a leading provider of audit and recovery services for organizations
in the public and private sectors.  More than two thirds of
expected 2016 revenues of $125 million are derived from the
recovery and restructuring of defaulted student loans, while fees
from healthcare payment collections, primarily on behalf of the
CMS, and delinquent-tax collections constitute the balance of
revenues.  Management and affiliates of private equity investor
Parthenon Capital Partners continue to own a substantial stake in
Performant, although Parthenon has been divesting its ownership,
which currently stands at about 27%.

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


PHILLIPS INVESTMENTS: Ten-X to Auction Property on May 2-4
----------------------------------------------------------
At the behest of the Debtor, Phillips Investments, LLC, the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Georgia reaffirmed
the (i) employment of Ten X as auctioneer to the Debtor; (ii)
approval of sale procedures in connection with the sale of certain
real property of the Debtor free and clear of all liens, claims and
interests; and (iii) schedule of auction.

Phillips Investments requires Ten-X to:

   -- market the Debtor's property during the marketing period,
      which will commence on the effective date and end 100 days
      thereafter.

   -- auction the property on May 2-4, 2016, subject to changes.
      The auction will be conducted by Ten-X in its customary
      practices in coordination with the Debtor.

   -- establish an online data room for qualified bidders
      consisting of standard diligence documents either provided
      by the Debtor or obtained by Ten-X at its own expense. In
      particular, Ten-X will pay for a Phase I Environmental
      Report and a Property Condition Assessment at no cost to
      the Debtor and post those documents in the data room. Ten-X
      will provide access to the online data room to those
      entities who sign appropriate confidentiality agreements.

Ten-X will be entitled to a buyer's premium of 5% of sale price.
None of the actual sale price shall be used to pay any fees to
Ten-X. Moreover, Ten-X has agreed to pay a listing brokerage
commission to Debtor's listing agent, Hale Retail Group, in an
amount not to exceed 1.4% of the sales price at closing of the sale
of the property. The Debtor will have no further obligation to
Hale.

Ten-X has agreed to pay a Buyer Broker Commission in the amount of
$50,000 to a qualifying buyer broker at closing of the sale of the
Property. The Buyer's premium shall be payable to Ten-X from any
sales resulting from an agreement to sale the property during the
marketing period and, in certain conditions, for sales that result
from an agreement entered into during a 90 day tail period.

If the Debtor withdraws the property from auction during the
marketing period for any reason other than a material adverse
change or for cause, the Debtor will be obligated to pay Ten-X a
withdrawal fee equal to 5% of the Reserve Price.

All prospective bidders will be required to post a $100,000 deposit
and show the financial ability to close in order to participate in
the auction. If the winning bidder does not close for any reason,
any deposit actually received by Ten-X from the winning bidder will
be forfeited to the Debtor.

Bidding will be conducted on-line through Ten-X. All bidders must
agree to a form of purchase agreement approved by Ten-X and the
Debtor. Such form purchase agreement shall require such winning
bidder to post an additional, non-refundable deposit in the total
amount of 5% of the sale price within 24 hours of the close of the
auction. All bids are for the property "as is and where is" and are
not subject to any further due diligence or any other conditions
unless expressly agreed to by the Debtor. If any bids are received
within the final minute of the scheduled auction, the auction shall
automatically be extended for additional periods of time pursuant
to Ten-X standard procedures.

The Debtor will be required to close with a winning bidder who
places a bid at or above the Reserve Price and whose bid has been
accepted by the Debtor. The Debtor has the discretion to accept or
decline any bid that does not meet the Reserve Price; provided,
however, that the Debtor may not accept any bid that is not
sufficient to satisfy the Bank's secured claim in full, unless
otherwise agreed to by the Bank in writing.

The Closing Date shall be no later than 30 days after the close of
the auction, and shall be specified in the purchase agreement.

Ten-X will use its best efforts to secure a back-up bidder if the
winning bidder does not close for any reason.

Kevin Spellacy, regional vice-president of Ten-X formerly known as
Auction.com, 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.

Mr. Spellacy, however, disclosed that:

     An affiliate of one of the Debtor's tenants -- GW Real Estate

      of Georgia, LLC, a Georgia limited liability company --
      a shopping center located at 2205 Pleasant Hill Road,
      Duluth, GA 30096 through an auction conducted by Ten-
      X in 2015, which closed November 24, 2015.

As of Dec. 31, 2015, Porter Bancorp had $948.72 million in total
assets, $916.70 million in total liabilities and $32.01 million in
total stockholders' equity.

The Company's auditor Crowe Horwath, LLP, in Louisville, Kentucky,
issued a "going concern" qualification on the consolidated
financial statements for the year ended Dec. 31, 2015, citing that
"the Company has incurred substantial losses in 2015, 2014 and
2013, largely as a result of asset impairments resulting from the
re-evaluation of fair value and ongoing operating expenses related
to the high volume of other real estate owned and non-performing
loans.  In addition, the Company's bank subsidiary is not in
compliance with a regulatory enforcement order issued by its
primary federal regulator requiring, among other things, increased
minimum regulatory capital ratios as well as being involved in
various legal proceedings in which the Company disputes material
factual allegations against the Company.  Additional losses,
adverse outcomes from legal proceedings or the continued inability
to comply with the regulatory enforcement order may result in
additional adverse regulatory action.  These events raise
substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a
going concern."

RESIDENTIAL CAPITAL: Suit vs. Summit Remains in District Court
--------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Paul G. Gardephe of the United States District Court for the
Southern District of New York denied defendants Summit Financial
Mortgage LLC, et al.'s motion to withdraw reference of the action
styled RESCAP LIQUIDATING TRUST, Plaintiff, v. SUMMIT FINANCIAL
MORTGAGE LLC f/k/a SUMMIT FINANCIAL, LLC and SUMMIT COMMUNITY BANK,
INC. f/k/a SHENANDOAH VALLEY BANK, N.A., Defendants, No. 14 Civ.
5453 (PGG)(S.D.N.Y.), relating to In Re: RESIDENTIAL CAPITAL, LLC
et al., Debtors.

This is an adversary proceeding originally filed in the United
States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York by
Plaintiff Rescap Liquidating Trust successor to Residential Funding
Company, LLC, f/k/a Residential Funding Corporation ("RFC") against
Defendants Summit Financial Mortgage LLC, f/k/a Summit Financial,
LLC and its guarantor Summit Community Bank, Inc., f/k/a/
Shenandoah Valley Bank, N.A. RFC was formerly in the business of
acquiring and securitizing residential mortgage loans.  Rescap
claims that Summit Financial -- a mortgage lender -- sold RFC loans
that contained material defects, which RFC then securitized. RFC
was later sued by numerous counterparties and investors in
connection with defective loans, and it filed a bankruptcy petition
in this District.  RFC settled its liabilities with those parties
in the bankruptcy proceedings and its successor, Rescap, now
asserts claims for breach of contract and indemnification against
Summit Financial and for breach of a guaranty agreement against
Summit Bank, in connection with the sale of the allegedly defective
loans.  The Defendants have moved to withdraw the reference of this
action to the bankruptcy court.

SMALL BUSINESS: Balks at US Trustee Bid to Dismiss or Convert Case
------------------------------------------------------------------
BankruptcyData.com reported that Small Business Development Group
filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court an objection to the motion of
the U.S. Trustee to dismiss the Chapter 11 proceeding or, in the
alternative, convert it to a liquidation under Chapter 7.

According to the report, Small Business Development asserts,
"Debtor asserts the case was filed in good faith in contradiction
to the United States Trustee assertion that the case was filed in
'bad faith.' The Debtor has been upfront about why the Debtor filed
for relief under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code
(the 'Code'). One of the primary factors, for commencing this
chapter 11 case was to remove an action pending in the Supreme
Judicial Court in New York. The Debtor asserts the lawsuit filed by
Darling Capital LLC is a sham pleading, one that is good in form
but is so clearly false in fact that it does not raise any genuine
issue and should be dismissed on its face. The Debtor on several
occasions tried in good faith to negotiate with the creditors,
however to no avail. The Trustee is alleging that the Chapter 11
case was filed for the primary purpose of gaining a tactical
advantage in litigation. This statement is incorrect. This case was
filed in good faith to preserve the entity and allow a
reorganization in which all claims against the estate, including to
some extent, Darling, will be paid to the extent of their allowed
claims. Toward that end, the Debtor will be filing substantially
contemporaneously herewith, a disclosure statement and plan that is
in accordance with the rehabilitative purposes of the Bankruptcy
Code. There is no 'bad faith' as the US Trustee asserts."

Rockland, Maine-based Small Business Development Group, Inc.,
formerly known as Virogen, Inc., filed for Chapter 11 protection
(Bankr. D. Me. Case No. 16-10005) on Jan. 5, 2016.  Jeffrey P.
White, Esq., at Jeffrey P. White And Associates, P.C., represent
the Debtor in its restructuring effort.  The Debtor disclosed
total
assets of $5.32 million, and total liabilities of
$1.21 million.  The petition was signed by Roy Y. Salisbury,
CEO/President.

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

At the same time, S&P lowered its issue-level ratings on the
company's senior secured revolving credit facility and first-lien
term loan to 'B' from 'B+' and revised S&P's recovery ratings on
the debt to '3' from '2'.  The '3' recovery rating indicates S&P's
expectation for meaningful recovery (50%-70%; upper half of the
range) in the event of a default.

S&P also affirmed its 'CCC+' issue-level rating on the company's
senior secured second-lien term loan.  The '6' recovery rating on
the second-lien term loan remains unchanged, indicating S&P's
expectation for negligible recovery (0%-10%) in the event of a
default.

"We have lowered our estimate of USIC's enterprise value in our
recovery analysis to reflect our lowered assumptions for the
company's profitability, which we believe support our revised
recovery valuation," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Robyn
Shapiro.  "The company's EBITDA margins have declined because of
the greater-than-expected level of damage expenses it experienced
in 2015."

The stable outlook on USIC reflects S&P's belief that the company
will continue to generate consistent FOCF while maintaining a
FOCF-to-debt ratio in the mid-single digit percent area over the
next 12 months.  Due to the partially debt-financed acquisition
that USIC undertook in the first quarter of 2015--as well as the
greater-than-expected level of damage expenses it experienced
during the year--USIC's debt leverage is now at the higher end of
S&P's expectations for the current rating.  However, S&P expects
that the company's debt-to-EBITDA metric will decline below 7x in
2016 under S&P's base-case scenario.

S&P could lower its ratings on USIC in the next 12 months if it
appears that the company's free cash flow will turn negative and
its liquidity becomes constrained because of a higher-than-expected
draw on the company's revolver.  Alternatively, S&P would also
consider a downgrade if the company's debt leverage remained above
7x on a sustained basis, potentially because of a further decline
in its EBITDA margins coupled with a larger-than-anticipated
dividend or acquisition-related outflows.  A
weaker-than-anticipated operating performance could occur due to
elevated fuel prices, weather-related disruptions (which can
periodically halt or slow construction and, hence, demand for
USIC's services), or aggressive bidding from competitors, for
example.

S&P does not view an upgrade as likely at this time, in its
opinion, since USIC's forecasted credit ratios will likely remain
highly leveraged in the medium term, based on S&P's assessment of
its current financial sponsor's ownership track record.



VALEANT PHARMA: Default Notices No Impact on Moody's B2 CFR
-----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service commented that additional Notices of
Default received by Valeant Pharmaceuticals International, Inc. are
a negative development.  However, there are no immediate changes to
Valeant's ratings.  These include the B2 Corporate Family Rating,
the Caa1-PD Probability of Default Rating, the Ba2 (LGD 1) senior
secured rating, the B3 (LGD 3) senior unsecured rating and the
SGL-4 Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating.

"The development does not materially change the likelihood of
Valeant facing a payment default.  That's because the 60 day time
period for curing the breach in the new Notices of Default is
outside the window under which debt acceleration could already
occur under certain scenarios," stated Michael Levesque, Moody's
Senior Vice President.

Headquartered in Laval, Quebec, Valeant Pharmaceuticals
International, Inc. is a global specialty pharmaceutical company
with expertise including branded dermatology, gastrointestinal
disorders, eye health, neurology, branded generics and OTC
products.  Valeant reported approximately $10 billion in total
revenue for the 12 months ended Sept. 30, 2015.



VALEANT PHARMACEUTICALS: Bank Debt Trades at 3% Off
---------------------------------------------------
Participations in a syndicated loan under which Valeant
Pharmaceuticals is a borrower traded in the secondary market at
97.48 cents-on-the-dollar during the week ended Friday, April 22,
2016, according to data compiled by LSTA/Thomson Reuters MTM
Pricing.  This represents an increase of 0.75 percentage points
from the previous week.  Valeant Pharmaceuticals pays 325 basis
points above LIBOR to borrow under the $2.35 billion facility. The
bank loan matures on April 9, 2022 and  Moody's and Standard &
Poor's BB did not give any 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
22.



VALEANT PHARMACEUTICALS: Gets More Default Notices after 10-K Delay
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Eric J. Weiner, writing for Bloomberg Brief, reported that Valeant
Pharmaceuticals International Inc.'s bondholders are ratcheting up
the pressure on the drugmaker to file its delayed financial
statements.

According to the report, citing a statement by the drugmaker, a
trustee for holders of four of the company's bonds sent Valeant
notices of default after it failed to file its 2015 financial
results on time.  That's the
second round of default notices the company has received within two
weeks, the report said.

Valeant, which said that it's still on track to file the statements
on or before April 29, must do so before a May 27 deadline, after
which lenders could demand repayment, the report related.  The
Laval, Quebec-based company missed its initial March filing
deadline amid scrutiny over its business practices, accounting,
drug pricing and its relationship with mail-order pharmacy Philidor
Rx Services LLC, the report further related.

The drugmaker named Perrigo Co. Chief Executive Officer Joseph Papa
to replace outgoing CEO Mike Pearson, the report said.  Valeant
said in March that Pearson would leave the company once a
replacement is found, part of a broader overhaul that included
adding activist investor Bill Ackman to its board, the report
added.

VELOCITY POOLING: S&P Lowers CCR to 'CCC+', Outlook Negative
------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its corporate credit
rating on Indianapolis-based Velocity Pooling Vehicle LLC to 'CCC+'
from 'B'.  The outlook is negative.

At the same time, S&P lowered its issue-level rating on the
first-lien term loan to 'CCC+' from 'B'.  The '4' recovery rating
remains unchanged, indicating S&P's expectation for average (30% to
50%, lower half of the range) recovery in the event of a payment
default.

S&P also lowered the issue-level rating on the second-lien term
loan to 'CCC-' from 'CCC+'.  The '6' recovery rating remains
unchanged, indicating S&P's expectation for negligible (0%-10%)
recovery in the event of payment default.  

"The downgrade reflects the company's inability to reach sales
levels and realize synergies consistent with our expectations,
resulting in profitability that is substantially lower than our
prior forecast, an unsustainable capital structure, negative free
operating cash flow over the past two years, and reduced
liquidity," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Katherine Heng.

By Standard & Poor's calculations, Velocity's current debt to
EBITDA is around 10x and funds from operations (FFO) to debt is
below 4%, versus S&P's prior forecast of below 7x and around 10%,
respectively.  S&P now forecasts debt to EBITDA in the high 9x area
and FFO to debt and mid-single digit area in 2016.  S&P lowered its
profit forecast for Velocity because S&P do not see any material
drivers for growth.

S&P do not anticipate a liquidity crisis over the near term since
debt maturities are minimal; moreover, S&P do not expect a
financial covenant violation in the near term since credit facility
availability is above the springing fixed charge coverage trigger
point and utilization should decline with seasonal cash inflows
starting in the second quarter.

S&P's negative outlook reflects the company's inability to reach
sales levels and realize synergies consistent with original
expectations, resulting in profitability that is substantially
lower than S&P's prior forecast, an unsustainable capital
structure, negative free operating cash flow over the past two
years, and reduced liquidity.  S&P could lower the ratings if it
believes a default scenario (such as a distressed exchange) is
likely, or if there is a liquidity crisis, including a potential
violation of the springing covenant, which could result from a
material deficit in free cash flow.

S&P could take a positive rating action if the company begins to
win back lost business, realize traction on restructuring
initiatives, and generating significant positive free cash flow.
For this to occur, the company's market share, as well as operating
efficiencies, would need to increase meaningfully, supported by a
sustained stabilization in motorcycle aftermarket demand.

"Retail bankruptcies, both large and small, were notable events in
the first quarter," said Andrew Hedlund, bankruptcy reporter for
The Deal.  "This trend will likely continue, as more retailers have
encountered financial distress this year.  The sector will likely
continue presenting restructuring professionals with opportunities
as more retailers look to address debt loads and financial

bankruptcy law firms by volume, with $1,029.1 billion in
liabilities.  Latham & Watkins LLP followed, with $1,007.2 billion
in liabilities.  Vedder Price PC ranked third, with $996.6 billion
in liabilities.  Dentons followed in fourth with $943.1 billion in

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.
