21ST CENTURY: Obtains Indenture Default Waivers Until July 31
-------------------------------------------------------------
As previously announced, on July 22, 2016, 21st Century Oncology,
Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of 21st Century Oncology Holdings,
Inc., reached an agreement with holders of a majority of the
aggregate principal amount of Notes outstanding to enter into a
Second Supplemental Indenture to the Indenture, dated April 30,
2015, among 21C, the guarantors named therein and Wilmington Trust,
National Association, as trustee, governing 21C's 11.00% Senior
Notes due 2023.

On July 25, 2016, 21C received the requisite consents from the
Consenting Holders and entered into the Supplemental Indenture. The
Supplemental Indenture provides for a limited waiver through July
31, 2016, of certain defaults or events of default under the
Indenture for failure to timely furnish to the Trustee and holders
of the Notes or file with the SEC the financial information
required in an annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended
Dec. 31, 2015, or in a quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the period
ended March 31, 2016.  As previously disclosed on July 22, 2016, as
consideration for the foregoing, 21C paid to all holders of Notes
an amount representing additional interest on the Notes equal to
$2.30 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes.  21C also paid certain
fees and expenses of the advisors to the Consenting Holders
incurred in connection with the Supplemental Indenture.

                        About 21st Century

Services, Inc. ("RTS") owns and operates radiation treatment

assets, $1.33 billion in total liabilities, $370 million in
series A convertible redeemable preferred stock, $19.9 million in
noncontrolling interests and a total deficit of $623 million.

                            *     *     *

As reported by the TCR on Feb. 27, 2015, Moody's Investors Service
upgraded 21st Century Oncology, Inc.'s Corporate Family Rating and
Probability of Default Rating to B3 and B3-PD, respectively.
The upgrade of the Corporate Family Rating to B3 and SGL to SGL-2
reflects the receipt of a $325 million preferred equity investment
from the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board and subsequent debt
reduction.

As reported by the TCR on May 20, 2016, S&P Global Ratings lowered
its corporate credit rating on 21st Century to 'CCC' from 'B-' and
placed the rating on CreditWatch with negative implications.

ADAMIS PHARMACEUTICALS: Files USC Historical Financial Statements
-----------------------------------------------------------------
As previously disclosed in a Current Report on Form 8-K filed by
Adamis Pharmaceuticals Corporation with the Securities and Exchange
Commission, on April 12, 2016, the Company completed its
acquisition of U.S. Compounding, Inc., an Arkansas corporation,
pursuant to the terms of the Agreement and Plan of Merger dated as
of March 28, 2016, and entered into by and among the Company, USC
and Ursula MergerSub Corp., an Arkansas corporation and a wholly
owned subsidiary of the Company.  Pursuant to the terms of the
Merger Agreement, MergerSub merged with and into USC, with USC
surviving as a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company.  All of the
outstanding shares of common stock of USC were converted into the
right to receive a total of approximately 1,618,544 shares of
Adamis common stock.

In connection with the Company's acquisition of USC and the
transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement including the
transfer by certain third parties to us of the building and real
property on which USC's principal offices and facilities are
located as well as certain other assets, the Company assumed
approximately $5,722,500 principal amount of debt obligations under
certain loan agreements and related agreements and documents of USC
and certain related entities and agreed to become an additional
co-borrower under such loan documents.

On June 27, 2016, the Company filed a Report on Form 8-K/A with the
SEC to provide historical financial statements for USC for the
years ended Dec. 31, 2015 and 2014, and certain unaudited pro forma
financial information of the Company, copies of which are available

ADAMIS PHARMACEUTICALS: Has $11.1-Mil. Registered Direct Offering
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Adamis Pharmaceuticals Corporation announced that it has entered
into definitive subscription agreements with investors pursuant to
a registered direct offering for total gross proceeds of
approximately $11.1 million.  The closing of the transaction is
expected to occur on Aug. 2, 2016, subject to the satisfaction of
customary closing conditions.

The offering was priced at $3.095 per unit, representing a 4.2%
premium to the closing price on the agreement date.  Each unit
consists of one share of common stock and one warrant to purchase
one share of common stock.  The warrants will be immediately
exercisable after issuance at an exercise price of $2.98 per share
and will expire five years from the date of issuance.  The shares
of common stock and warrants are immediately separable.

Adamis estimates that the net offering proceeds, after deducting
placement agent fees, will be approximately $10.3 million,
excluding any future proceeds from the potential exercise of the
warrants and before deducting other estimated offering expenses
payable by Adamis.

Proceeds from the transaction are intended to be used for general
corporate purposes, which may include, without limitation,
expenditures relating to development and further trials relating to
the company's epinephrine pre-filled syringe product and
resubmission of the company's New Drug Application relating to that
product, other research and development and clinical trial
expenditures, helping fund operations of our USC subsidiary, hiring
additional personnel, acquisitions of new technologies or products,
the potential repayment of indebtedness under loan agreements and
documents, and working capital.

transaction.

the shares of common stock and warrants issued in the offering (and
the shares of common stock issuable upon exercise of the warrants)
has been filed with, and declared effective by, the Securities and
Exchange Commission.  A prospectus supplement relating to the
offering will be filed with the SEC. Copies of the prospectus
supplement and accompanying prospectus may be obtained at the SEC's
website at http://www.sec.gov, or from the offices of Maxim Group
LLC, 405 Lexington Avenue, New York, New York 10174, Attn:

AIRFASTTICKETS INC: Unsecureds to Get Under 4% Recovery
-------------------------------------------------------
Airfasttickets, Inc., filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Southern District of New York a Disclosure Statement for the
Debtor's Chapter 11 Plan of Liquidation, which proposes less than
1% to 4% recovery for general unsecured claims.

General Unsecured Claims are grouped into:

     -- General Unsecured Claims (Class 2-A)

Except to the extent that a holder of an Allowed General Unsecured
Class 2-A Claim has agreed to a less favorable treatment of the
Claim, and only to the extent that any Allowed General Unsecured
Class 2-A Claim has not been paid in full before the Effective
Date, in full and final satisfaction, settlement, release, and
discharge of each Allowed General Unsecured Class 2-A Claim, each
holder of an Allowed General Unsecured Class 2-A Claim will
receive, on a distribution date, its pro rata share of the net
available cash from the Liquidating Trust, after full and final
satisfaction of or release of all Administrative Expense Claims,
Professional Compensation and Reimbursement Claims, Priority Tax
Claims, and Class 1 Priority Non-Tax Claims, in accordance with the
terms of the Plan and the Liquidating Trust Agreement, as full and
complete satisfaction of the holder's Claims against the
Liquidating Trust.  The Liquidating Trust shall make subsequent
distributions to holders of Disputed General Unsecured Claims as of
the Distribution Record Date whose Claims are subsequently Allowed
in accordance with the terms of the Plan and the Liquidating Trust
Agreement.

The Debtor estimates that the aggregate amount of Allowed General
Unsecured Claims will be approximately $38,319,472 based on the
Debtor's schedules.  

Class 2-A is impaired and is entitled to vote to accept or reject
the Plan.  Any recovery under the Plan to Holders of Allowed
General Unsecured Claims is contingent upon the continued
investigative efforts of the Debtor and any recoveries by the
Liquidating Trust on account of the Causes of Action transferred to
the Liquidating Trust.  It is impossible to estimate at this time
the amount, if any, of recoveries by the Liquidating Trust.

     -- General Unsecured Claim of Airfasttickets Ltd.(Class 2-B)

Except to the extent that Airfasttickets, Ltd., has agreed to a
less favorable treatment of its Claim, and only to the extent that
any Allowed General Unsecured Claim of Airfasttickets has not been
paid in full before the Effective Date, in full and final
satisfaction, settlement, release, and discharge of each Allowed
General Unsecured Claim of Airfasttickets Ltd. will receive, on a
distribution date, its pro rata share of the net available cash
from the Liquidating Trust, after full and final satisfaction of or
release of all Administrative Expense Claims, Professional
Compensation and Reimbursement Claims, Priority Tax Claims, and
Class 1 Priority Non-Tax Claims, in accordance with the terms of
the Plan and the Liquidating Trust Agreement, as full and complete
satisfaction of Airfasttickets Ltd.'s Claims against the
Liquidating Trust.  The Liquidating Trust will make subsequent
distributions to Airfasttickets Ltd. of any of its Disputed General
Unsecured Claims as of the Distribution Record Date when such
Claims are subsequently Allowed in accordance with the terms of the
Plan and the Liquidating Trust Agreement.

The Debtor estimates that Airfasttickets Ltd.'s General Unsecured
Claim is $55,876,330.22 based on a Proof of Claim filed against the
Estate.  The claim is being evaluated by the Debtor.  Counsel for
the Debtor has requested additional information concerning the
claim and supporting documentation have been made to counsel for
Airfasttickets Ltd.

Class 2-B is impaired and is entitled to vote to accept or reject
the Plan.  Any recovery under the Plan to Holders of Allowed
General Unsecured Claims is contingent upon the continued
investigative efforts of the Debtor and any recoveries by the
Liquidating Trust on account of the Causes of Action transferred to
the Liquidating Trust.  It is impossible to estimate at this time
the amount, if any, of recoveries by the Liquidating Trust.

Any payment in cash to be made by the Liquidating Trustee will be
made, at the election of the Liquidating Trustee, by check drawn on
a domestic bank or by wire transfer from a domestic bank; provided,
however, that for administrative convenience, the Liquidating
Trustee will not be required to make distributions in an amount
less than $100.

Closing of Case

When all Disputed Claims have become Allowed Claims or have been
disallowed by Final Order, the Liquidating Trustee may seek
authority from the Bankruptcy Court to close the Chapter 11 case in
accordance with the Bankruptcy Code and the Bankruptcy Rules.
However, the Liquidating Trustee in his business judgment may also
determine that the Chapter 11 case should remain open and pending
before the Bankruptcy Court for any reason (including to facilitate
discovery by way of Rule 2004 motion(s) or to pursue any causes of
actions, including without limitation any Cause of Action on
account of pending or forthcoming adversary proceedings).

Petitioning Creditors filed a stipulation with the Court extending

and including Sept. 21, 2015.  On Sept. 21, 2015, the Debtor filed
an answer, consenting to the entry of an order for relief under the
Bankruptcy Code.  The Debtor also filed its motion to convert the
Chapter 7 case to Chapter 11.  The motion to convert was filed to
accomplish the Debtor's intent to effectuate the sale at issue in
the motion under Chapter 11.  On Oct. 27, 2015, the Court entered
an order converting the Debtor's case to Chapter 11 of the
Bankruptcy Code.

                       About American Media

Based in New York, American Media, Inc., publishes celebrity
journalism and health and fitness magazines in the U.S.  These
include Star, Shape, Men's Fitness, Fit Pregnancy, Natural Health,
and The National Enquirer.  In addition to print properties, AMI
manages 14 different Web sites.  The company also owns
Distribution Services, Inc., an in-store magazine merchandising
company.

American Media, Inc., and 15 units, including American Media
Operations, Inc., filed for Chapter 11 protection in Manhattan
(Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 10-16140) on Nov. 17, 2010, with a
prepackaged plan.  The Debtors emerged from Chapter 11
reorganization in December 2010, handing ownership to former
bondholders.  The new owners include hedge funds Avenue Capital
Group and Angelo Gordon & Co.

American Media reported net income of $18.0 million on $223 million
of total operating revenues for the fiscal year ended March 31,
2016, compared to a net loss of $25.9 million on $245 million of
total operating revenues for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2015.
As of March 31, 2016, American Media had $422 million in total
assets, $501 million in total liabilities, $3 million in redeemable

                           *     *     *

As reported in the Jan. 9, 2015 edition of the TCR, American Media
carries a 'Caa1' corporate family rating from Moody's.  American
Media's Caa1 CFR reflects the company's elevated total debt to
EBITDA leverage that Moody's expect will rise to the 8-9x range
(Moody's adjusted) over the rating horizon from about 7x as of
Sept. 30, 2014 as a result of lower EBITDA performance that
stems from a reduction in circulation sales associated with the
bankruptcy filing of AMI's second largest publications wholesaler,
Source Interlink Distribution ("Source").  The rating also captures
AMI's weak liquidity profile and deteriorating EBITDA cushion under
the revolver's first-lien leverage covenant resulting from the
lower circulation revenue aggravated by the Source bankruptcy,
which required temporary covenant relief through an amendment to
the credit facility.

As reported by the TCR on March 29, 2016, Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services said that it lowered its corporate credit rating on Boca
Raton, Fla.-based American Media Inc. to 'SD' (selective default)
from 'CCC+'.  The downgrades follow American Media's announcement
that it has completed an exchange of $58.9 million of its existing
11.5% first-lien senior secured notes due 2017 for $78 million 7%
senior secured second-lien notes due 2020.  Concurrent with the
exchange, the company issued and distributed about $83.5 million of
additional second-lien notes to equity holders.

ANIXTER INC: Moody's Affirms Ba2 CFR & Alters Outlook to Stable
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service affirmed Anixter Inc.'s Ba2 Corporate
Family Rating and changed its outlook to stable from negative. In
related actions, Moody's: 1) affirmed the Ba3 rating assigned to
Anixter's $350 million senior unsecured notes due 2019; 2) affirmed
the Ba3 rating assigned to Anixter's $400 million senior unsecured
notes due 2021; and 3) affirmed the Ba3 rating assigned to
Anixter's $350 million senior unsecured notes due 2023.

The following is a summary of Moody's ratings and rating actions
taken for Anixter:

-- Corporate Family Rating affirmed at Ba2;

-- Probability of Default Rating affirmed at Ba2-PD;

-- $350 million senior unsecured notes due 2019 affirmed at Ba3,
    to (LGD4) from (LGD5) ;

-- $400 million senior unsecured notes due 2021 affirmed at Ba3,
    to (LGD4) from (LGD5);

-- $350 million senior unsecured notes due 2023 affirmed Ba3, to
    (LGD4) from (LGD5); and

-- Speculative grade liquidity rating affirmed at SGL-2.

Outlook Actions:

-- Outlook, changed to Stable

RATINGS RATIONALE

The change in the outlook from negative to stable reflects Moody's
overall positive view of the evolution of Anixter's integration of
Power Solutions into its organizational structure. Early signs from
1Q and 2Q 2016 figures present a cohesive incorporation of the
newly acquired business into Anixter's Electrical & Electronic
Solutions ( "EES ") and Utility Power Solutions ( "UPS ") segments.
Moody's expects Anixter's low and medium voltage electrical product
offering and sales to benefit from this acquisition as the company
continues to revert back to its publicly stated target credit
metrics.

The Ba2 Corporate Family Rating ( "CFR ") reflects Anixter's
relatively large scale within its main markets with a
well-diversified product offering and extensive geographic reach,
as well as the company's proven free cash flow generation capacity.
The rating also takes into account Anixter's low margins, limited
organic growth, and increased debt leverage since the acquisition
of HD Supply's Power Solutions division in October 2015. Moody's
anticipates the company will continue to slowly but steadily
delever during Moody's time horizon. Moody's forward view projects
adjusted debt-to-EBITDA declining towards 4.0x over the next 12 to
18 months (all ratios incorporate Moody's standard accounting
adjustments).

WHAT COULD CHANGE RATINGS UP/DOWN

Positive rating actions could ensue if Anixter's operating
performance exceeds Moody's expectations, resulting in improved
credit metrics as follows:

-- Adjusted debt-to-EBITDA sustained below 3.0x.

-- Interest coverage (measured as EBITA-to-interest expense),
    sustained above 5.0x.

Negative rating actions may be taken if Anixter's operating
performance falls below Moody's expectations, or if the company
experiences a weakening in financial performance resulting in the
following adjusted metrics:

-- Adjusted debt-to-EBITDA increases above 4.5x.

-- Interest coverage (measured as EBITA-to-interest expense),
    sustained below 2.5x.

-- In addition, if Anixter pursues further cash distributions or
    large debt-financed acquisitions that do not prove
    sufficiently accretive relative to incremental debt.

-- A deteriorating liquidity profile could pressure the ratings
    as well. "

Corporate Profile:

Headquartered in Glenview, Illinois, Anixter Inc. is a global
distributor of communications products, electrical and electronic
wire and cable, and OEM supply. The company's end users include
enterprises, data centers, manufacturers, natural resources
companies, utilities and original equipment manufacturers. In 2015,
Anixter had revenues of $6,191 million and Moody's adjusted EBITDA
of $412.4 million.



AOG ENTERTAINMENT: Court Allows DIP Loan From Elvis Blue Moon
-------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Stuart M. Bernstein of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Southern District of New York, authorized AOG Entertainment, Inc.
and its affiliated Debtors to obtain postpetition financing and
continue using cash collateral.

Judge Bernstein authorized the Debtors to obtain
debtor-in-possession financing in the form of a revolving credit
facility in the aggregate principal amount of up to $30,000,000
from Elvis Blue Moon Holdings, LLC.

The Debtors are indebted to the First Lien Lenders and their
administrative agent, U.S. Bank, in an amount not less than
$209,000,000, plus any related accrued and unpaid fees and
expenses.  The Debtors are also indebted to the Second Lien Lenders
and their administrative agent, U.S. Bank, in an amount not less
than $189,000,000, plus any related accrued and unpaid fees and
expenses.  These debts are secured by liens and security interests
granted by the Debtors to the First Lien Lenders and the Second
Lien Lenders in prepetition collateral.

The First Lien Lenders, Second Lien Lenders and U.S. Bank asserted
that substantially all of the Debtors' cash, including all cash and
other amounts on deposit or maintained by the Debtors in any
account or accounts with any Prepetition Secured Party and any cash
proceeds of the disposition of any prepetition collateral within
the possession of the Debtors, constitute proceeds of the
prepetition collateral, and are therefore, their cash collateral.
They also assert that the cash maintained at Elvis Blue Moon
Holdings constitutes collateral to secure the Prepetition First
Lien Obligations and the Prepetition Second Line Obligations.

Judge Bernstein acknowledged that the Debtors have a critical need
to obtain the DIP Loans and to use the prepetition collateral,
including the cash collateral, in order to permit the orderly
continuation of their businesses, preserve the going concern value
of the Debtors and their non-Debtor affiliates, make adequate
protection payments, make payroll and satisfy the Debtors' other
working capital and general corporate purposes, among other
things.

The Debtors were authorized to use the prepetition collateral,
including the cash collateral until the earlier to occur of:

     (a) the Maturity Date of the DIP Credit Agreement; and

     (b) the acceleration of any DIP Loans and the termination of
the DIP Credit Agreement.

The approved Budget covers a period of 19 weeks, beginning on the
week ending May 7, 2016 and ending on the week ending September 10,
2016.  The Budget provides for total disbursements in the amount of
$23,298,000.

The Debtors were prohibited from using:

     (a) funds totaling approximately $10 million residing in a
certain bank account at Citibank, N.A. that is subject to a deposit
account control agreement in favor of the First Lien Agent;

     (b) funds in the account ending in 3106 held at Citibank,
N.A., that is subject to the pledge agreement between Citibank,
N.A. and CORE Media Group, Inc. f/k/a CKX, Inc.; and

     (c) funds in the account ending in 2173 held at Santander Bank
that may be subject to a security interest, other interest or
Finance PLC f/k/a Sovereign Finance PLC.

Judge Bernstein held that all of the DIP Obligations shall
constitute allowed senior administrative expense claims against the
Debtors with priority over any and all administrative expenses,
adequate protection claims and all other claims against the Debtors
or their estates.

The Carve-out consists of:

     (1) any fees payable to the Clerk of Court and to the Office
of the U.S. Trustee, and any interest on such fees;

     (2) the reasonable fees and expenses up to $50,000 incurred by
a trustee appointed in the Debtors' cases;

     (3) up to $500,000 of allowed fees, expenses and disbursements
of professionals retained by order of the Court, incurred after the
occurrence of a Carve-Out Event; and

     (4) all unpaid professional fees, expenses and disbursements
allowed by the Court for professionals employed by the estates and
retained by order of the Court, up to the amount provided for such
Estate Professionals on a line item basis in the Budget, that were
incurred prior to the occurrence of a Carve-Out Event.

Judge Bernstein granted Elvis Blue Moon Holdings a first lien on
unencumbered property, liens junior to certain existing liens, and
liens priming the liens of the Prepetition Secured Parties and all
liens junior thereto.

The First Lien Agent and the First Lien Lenders were granted
adequate protection in the form of a valid, perfected security
interest in and lien on all of the DIP Collateral, subject and
subordinate only to the DIP Liens, the Carve-Out, and the
Non-Primed Liens.

The Second Lien Agent, for the benefit of the Second Lien Lenders,
was granted a valid, perfected security interest in and lien on all
of the DIP Collateral subject and subordinate only to the DIP
Liens, the Carve-Out, the First Lien Adequate Protection Liens, the
Prepetition First Liens, and the Non-Primed Liens.

ARCH COAL: 10th Cir. Flips Summary Judgment on Retaliation Claims
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit reversed
the district court's order granting summary judgment in favor of
Mountain Coal Company, LLC, on Eugene Foster's retaliation claims
under the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The Tenth Circuit concluded that a reasonable jury could find that
Foster established a prima facie case of retaliation with respect
to both his April 3 and April 11 purported requests for
accommodation.  The appellate court further concluded that a
reasonable jury could find that Mountain Coal's asserted basis for
terminating Foster's employment was pretext.

The case is EUGENE FOSTER, Plaintiff-Appellant, and ROBERT FISK,
Plaintiff, v. MOUNTAIN COAL COMPANY, LLC; ARCH WESTERN RESOURCES,
LLC; ARCH COAL, INC., Defendants-Appellees, No. 15-1025 (10th
Cir.).

ARCHDIOCESE OF ST. PAUL: Substantive Consolidation Bid Denied
-------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Robert J. Kressel of the United States Bankruptcy Court for
the District of Minnesota denied the motion of the committee of
unsecured creditors to substantively consolidate the estates of the
debtor and over 200 Catholic nonprofit, non-debtor entities.

The motion named the following entities as targets: 187 parishes in
the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis, consolidated
schools, the Catholic Community Foundation of Minnesota, the
Francophone African Chaplaincy, Segrado Corizon de Jesus [sic], the
Chaplaincy of Gichitwaa Kateri [sic], Newman Center and Chapel
[sic], the Catholic Finance Corporation, The Catholic Cemeteries,
Totino Grace High School, DeLaSalle High School, and Benilde-St.
Margaret High School [sic].

Judge Kressel concluded that he lacked authority to substantively
consolidate the debtor with the targeted entities.  The judge also
added that, even if he had the authority to substantively
consolidate the debtor with non-consenting, eleemosynary
non-debtors, the committee failed to allege sufficient facts to
support substantive consolidation

order is available at http://bankrupt.com/misc/mnb15-30125-740.pdf

BASIC ENERGY: Incurs $90 Million Net Loss in Second Quarter
-----------------------------------------------------------
Basic Energy Services, Inc., filed with the Securities and Exchange
Commission its quarterly report on Form 10-Q disclosing a net loss
of $89.9 million on $120 million of total revenues for the three
months ended June 30, 2016, compared to a net loss of $48.3 million
on $194 million of total revenues for the three months ended June
30, 2015.

For the six months ended June 30, 2016, the Company reported a net
loss of $173 million on $250 million of total revenues compared to
a net loss of $80.9 million on $455 million of total revenues for
the same period a year ago.

As of June 30, 2016, Basic Energy had $1.07 billion in total
assets, $1.14 billion in total liabilities, and a $62.4 million
total stockholders' deficit.

As of June 30, 2016, the Company's primary capital resources were
utilization of capital leases, borrowings under its Term Loan
Agreement and borrowings under its Modified Facility, partially
offset by net cash used in operations.  As of June 30, 2016, the
Company had unrestricted cash and cash equivalents of $86.1 million
compared to $46.7 million as of Dec. 31, 2015.  An additional
amount of $19.4 million is classified as restricted cash and may be
released only upon satisfaction of predetermined conditions related
to perfection of the collateral by August 31, 2016.  However, such
conditions may not be satisfied by Aug. 31, 2016, and the Company
is currently seeking an extension of the deadline for satisfaction
of such conditions. The Company cannot predict whether the Term
Loan Agreement lenders will agree to extend the deadline for the
satisfaction of such conditions.
As of June 30, 2016, Basic had no borrowings and $51.8 million of
letters of credit outstanding under its Modified Facility, giving
Basic $22.1 million of available borrowing capacity under the

BFN OPERATIONS: Court Approves $35 -Mil. DIP Financing
------------------------------------------------------
Judge Barbara J. Houser of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Northern District of Texas authorized BFN Operations LLC and its
affiliated Debtors to obtain postpetition financing and use cash
collateral.

The Debtors were authorized to obtain a senior secured
superpriority debtor-in-possession revolving credit from
administrative agent PNC Bank, N.A. and the DIP Lender, in an
amount of up to $35,000,000, and to use the pre-petition
collateral, cash collateral and their proceeds and products.

The Debtors are indebted to PNC Bank, N.A., as adminstrative agent,
Crystal Financial LLC, as term loan agent, and the other lenders in
the amount of $110,692,454.86 as of June 16, 2016, plus prepetition
interest, fees, expenses, and other amounts arising in respect of
the indebtedness existing immediately before the Petition Date.
The indebtedness is secured by valid, enforceable, properly
perfected, first priority and unavoidable liens on and security
interests encumbering substantially all of the Debtors' assets.

Judge Houser acknowledged that it is in the best interest of the
Debtors' estates that the Debtors be allowed to enter into the DIP
Facility to obtain postpetition secured financing from the DIP
Agent and DIP Lender, and use the pre-petition collateral and cash
collateral.  She also acknowledged that the Debtors require access
to the funding under the DIP Facility to satisfy administrative
expenses associated with the operation of their businesses as going
concerns and other costs relating to the administration of the
Chapter 11 cases.

Judge Houser held that the proceeds of the DIP Facility and cash
collateral will be used solely for the following purposes:

     (a) to fund post-petition operating expenses and
working-capital needs of the Debtors, in accordance with the
Approved Budget or as approved by the DIP Agent and Term Loan
Agent;

     (b) to pay (x) interest, fees and expenses to the DIP Agent
and (y) fees and expenses to the Term Loan Agent;

     (c) to fund fees and expenses incurred in connection with the
363 Sale, subject to the reasonable consent of the DIP Agent and
Term Loan Agent, in writing or as set forth in the Approved

     (d) to pay permitted pre-petition claim payments and adequate
protection payments approved by DIP Agent and Term Loan Agent in
writing or set forth in the Approved Budget, if any;

     (e) to pay Professional Fees and expenses provided for in the
Approved Budget; and

     (f) to pay certain other costs and expenses of administration
of the Chapter 11 Cases as approved by the DIP Agent and Term Loan
Agent.

The Debtors were authorized to grant to the DIP Agent a valid,
binding, and enforceable lien, mortgage and/or security interest in
all of the Debtors’ presently owned or hereafter acquired
property and assets, and their proceeds and products, as security
for the DIP Facility Advances and other postpetition costs payable
under the DIP Financing Documents.

The Pre-petition Agent and Term Loan Agent were granted, for the
benefit of the Pre-petition Lenders, solely to the extent of
diminution in value of the Pre-petition Liens in the pre-petition
collateral, a valid, binding, enforceable and fully perfected Lien
in all DIP Collateral, junior only to the DIP Lien and the Carve
Out; and, a a postpetition superpriority administrative expense
claim against each of the Debtors, with recourse to all prepetition
and postpetition property of the Debtors and all their proceeds,
against the Debtors’ estates on a joint and several basis,
subject and junior only to the Carve-Out, DIP Facility Advances,
and DIP Superpriority Claim.

The Debtors were directed to make adequate protection cash payments
to the Term Loan Agent for the reasonable, out-of-pocket fees and
expenses of the Term Loan Agent, including its professionals.

The DIP Liens, DIP Facility Superpriority Claims, Adequate
Protection Liens and Prepetition Adequate Protection Superpriority
Claims will be subject to right of payment of the following
expenses:

     (a) unpaid postpetition fees and expenses of the Clerk of the
Court and statutory fees payable to the U.S. Trustee;

     (b) both (x) unpaid postpetition fees and expenses of
professionals of the Debtors and professionals of the Statutory
Committee, which are retained by an order of the Court; and (y) any
unpaid postpetition fees of the claims and noticing agent retained
by the Debtors, incurred prior to a Termination Event; and

     (c) postpetition fees and expenses of the Professionals
incurred after the occurrence of a Termination Event in an
aggregate amount not to exceed $50,000.

following milestones:

BLACK ELK ENERGY: Can Pursue Tax Claim vs. Platinum
---------------------------------------------------
Judge Marvin Isgur of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the
Southern District of Texas, Houston Division, ruled on the
Emergency Motion for Relief from the Automatic Stay filed by Black
Elk Energy, LLC; Black Elk Management, LLC; Black Elk Employee
Incentive, LLC; Freedom Well Service, LLC; Iron Island
Technologies, LLC; and John Hoffman.

The Movants sought relief from the automatic stay to pursue claims
against certain nondebtor parties, including Platinum Partners
Value Arbitrage Fund LP, Platinum Partners Liquid Opportunities
Master Fund LP, and TKN Petroleum Offshore LLC (collectively,
“Platinum”).  The Movants, creditors and equity holders in the
Debtor, including Debtor’s founder and former CEO, John Hoffman,
asserted that they possess certain claims, derivative in nature,
that Texas law allows them to bring as direct claims -- provided
that they comply with certain procedural requirements.  The Movants
further asserted that some of their claims are direct claims
(specifically, the tax claim, addressed in detail below), and as
such are not estate property.

The Motion was opposed by (1) Platinum; (2) the Official Committee
of Unsecured Creditors; and (3) the Debtor.

As to the Movants' derivative claims, Judge Isgur held that "In
certain circumstances, the Texas statute offers procedural benefits
to members of limited liability companies, allowing them to pursue
derivative actions for their personal benefit.  However, the
statute does not convert derivative claims into direct claims such
that they would not be included in a debtor LLC’s bankruptcy
estate."

With respect to the Movants' asserted tax claim, Judge Isgur
concluded that it is a direct claim, the pursuit of which would not
violate the debtor's automatic stay.

is available at http://bankrupt.com/misc/txsb15-34287-1224.pdf

CELERITAS CHEMICALS: Hires Sheldon Levy as Accountant
-----------------------------------------------------
Celeritas Chemicals, LLC seeks authorization from the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Texas to employ
Sheldon E. Levy, CPA as accountant.

The Debtor requires Sheldon E. Levy, CPA to perform accounting and
tax services for the Debtor.  Levy will be paid at $275 per hour.

in the oil and gas economy has had a material impact upon
operations and cash flow. Celeritas has downsized its operations
and overhead considerably in response to market conditions.
Moreover, and not surprisingly in a severe down market, Celeritas
is a party to several different lawsuits, in some cases as
plaintiff attempting to recover for unpaid product, and in other
cases as defendant related to disputes over product shipments.
Celeritas was unable to cash flow operations and litigation costs
spread among multiple venues, and the bankruptcy case was a
necessary step to allow Celeritas to address its operational issues
and litigation matters.

Sheldon E. Levy, CPA, 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.

CHRISTIAN FAMILY: Wants to Use Cash in Bank of America DIP Account
------------------------------------------------------------------
Christian Family Church International, Inc., asks the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Florida for
authorization to use cash collateral.

The Debtor tells the Court that it has one secured lender with a
lien on cash collateral -- Church Loans & Investments Trust,
Herring Bank as Trustee for the Benefit of the Bond Holders of
Christian Family Church International, Inc., which held a first
mortgage secured by real property of the Debtor and secured a
foreclosure judgment in the amount of $4,699,849.03.  The
foreclosure sale date was on January 5, 2016.  

The Debtor tells the Court that it requires the use of its cash
that may be claimed as cash collateral to fund all necessary
operating expenses of the Debtor’s business.  The Debtor further
tells the Court that it will suffer immediate and irreparable harm
if it cannot use funds in its D-I-P account to pay its expenses.
The Debtor adds that absent such use, it will not be able to
maintain and protect the personal property collateral and to
continue to hold religious services for its parishioners.

The Debtor believes that Church Loans will assert an interest in
the Debtor’s D-I-P account as cash collateral.  The Debtor
disputes that such account is cash collateral, at least as to any
amount in excess of the $36,894.26 in Debtor’s previous Bank of
America accounts as of the date of filing.

The Debtor says that it will provide adequate protection of the
portion of its D-I-P account representing the amounts held as of
the date of filing by segregation of that amount into a separate
account, if such funds are, in fact, cash collateral and would, in
that circumstance, be prohibited from using that cash.

Judge Brian D. Lynch of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Western
District of Washington at Tacoma granted Clear Creek Retirement
Plan II, LLC's request for an extension of the exclusive periods
for filing of a Chapter 11 plan and the solicitation and acceptance
of such plan, through and including Oct. 10, 2016, and Dec. 9,
2016, respectively.

The Troubled Company Reporter has previously reported that the
Debtor asked the Court to extend by 120 days its exclusive periods
to file and solicit acceptances of a Plan in order to facilitate
movement towards a fair and equitable resolution of this case.
Specifically, the Debtor has received an initial expression of
interest from a third-party that would purchase the Debtor's real
property assets and assume those obligations secured by the
properties, and thus, an order extending the Exclusive Periods
would allow the Debtor to finalize proposed asset purchase and
liquidation agreements.

additional sales with a new customer, U.S. Steel Canada, previously
supplied by its parent company, U.S. Steel." Mr. Goncalves

CONTINENTAL EXPLORATION: Wells Fargo Opposes Plan Outline
---------------------------------------------------------
Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., asked a U.S. bankruptcy court to deny
approval of the disclosure statement detailing the Chapter 11 plan
of reorganization of Continental Exploration LLC.

In a filing with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District
of Texas, Wells Fargo, a secured creditor of the company,
complained that the disclosure statement does not contain "adequate
information."

"The disclosure statement fails to provide creditors with adequate
information regarding the risks posed to creditors under the plan
including the feasibility of the plan," the bank said in the
filing.

The disclosure statement had also drawn flak from another creditor
XTO Energy Inc. and a group of investors represented by Texas-based
law firm Shannon, Gracey, Ratliff & Miller, LLP.  Both also
complained that the company failed to disclose important
information such as how it will pay certain claims of creditors.  

Under U.S. bankruptcy law, a company going through bankruptcy must
get approval of its disclosure statement to begin soliciting votes
for its Chapter 11 plan.  The document must contain sufficient
information to enable voting creditors to make an informed decision
about the plan.

EDWARD KAUFER: Wilmington Savings Fund Opposes Exit Plan
--------------------------------------------------------
Wilmington Savings Fund Society, FSB, asked a U.S. bankruptcy court
to deny approval of the Chapter 11 plan of reorganization proposed
by Edward and Cynthia Kaufer.

In a filing with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Nevada, Wilmington
questioned in particular the Debtors' proposal to fund the payments
under the plan from their new business venture.

The business venture involves the conversion of a residential
property in Verdi, Nevada, into an adult care facility.  The
property secures the loan provided by Wilmington, according to the
filing.

Wilmington said the proposed plan "seeks to avoid all discussion of
the likelihood of success of the new business venture."   

The Debtors filed an initial plan of reorganization on October 13,
2014.  An evidentiary hearing on the plan previously scheduled for
February 22, 2016, was vacated after the Debtors moved to withdraw
the plan.  On April 14, 2016, the Debtors proposed a new
restructuring plan.

Wilmington is represented by:

did pre-petition.

The fifth report is based upon a site visit, and discussion with
the residents, staff, the administrator, Paul Ferguson, as well as
communications with the assistance administrator, Destiny Wilkens.


Other than the changes in the management level of the nursing staff
where the assistant administrator has accepted a new position and
is no longer employed by the Debtor, there have not been any other
changes to the Debtorꞌs nursing staff. Likewise, there are no
changes in the security.

The Debtor is continuing to receive all of its necessary supplies
without any interruptions in service and the developments in the
financial matter provide stability and ease to the facility.

FILMED ENTERTAINMENT: Can Solicit Plan Acceptances Until August 5
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Shelley C. Chapman of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Southern District of New York extended Filmed Entertainment Inc.'s
exclusive period solicit acceptance of the Chapter 11 plan through
and including August 5, 2016.

As reported by The Troubled Company Reporter on June 28, 2016, the
Court extended, at the behest of Debtor, the exclusive period for
the Debtor to solicit acceptance of the Chapter 11 plan by 30 days,
through and including July 6, 2016.  

The Debtor is still working with its two largest creditor
constituencies, the Committee -- to select a Liquidation Trustee
and regarding certain provisions of the Liquidation Trust Agreement
-- and the Secured Creditor. Prior to filing, the Debtor circulated
numerous drafts of the Disclosure Statement and Plan to the
Committee and the Secured Creditor, incorporating many of their
comments into the Plan and Disclosure Statement.

The Debtor believes the Plan will be confirmed if it is afforded
the opportunity to complete the solicitation and vote tabulation
process.  The lapse of the Solicitation Period prior to the Voting
Deadline could potentially result in other parties seeking to
terminate the Debtor's Exclusive Solicitation Period and result in
unnecessary administrative expenses.  Neither the Debtor nor its
creditors would be served by disrupting the tremendous strides the
Debtor has made toward successfully confirming the Plan at this
stage in the Chapter 11 case, particularly, where the Debtor has
already filed a viable plan supported by its two largest creditor
constituencies.

GENESIS LIMITED: Dismissal of Prof. Services' Cross Claim Reversed
------------------------------------------------------------------
In the case captioned ASTORIA FEDERAL MORTGAGE CORPORATION, v.
GENESIS LIMITED PARTNERSHIP ET AL., AC 37754 (Conn. App. Ct.), the
Appellate Court of Connecticut reversed the judgment of the trial
court, which granted the motion filed by Bellmore Partners, Inc.,
to dismiss Professional Services Group, Inc.'s cross claim.

Professional Services claimed that the trial court erred by
granting Bellmore's motion to dismiss because it improperly
concluded that the defendant lacked standing.

The appellate court agreed, holding that Professional Services has
established, by the allegations of its cross claim and proof
submitted to the court, that it had validly assigned a mechanic's
lien for the construction work that it had performed on the
property at 89 Minerva Street in Derby.  Thus, the appellate court
concluded that Professional Services has established that it is
entitled to pursue its statutory remedy under General Statutes
section 49-33.

GENIUS BRANDS: Files Investor Presentation with SEC
---------------------------------------------------
Genius Brands International, Inc., filed with the U.S. Securities
and Exchange Commission a copy of an investor presentation
describing the Company's business which is available for free at:

                      https://is.gd/h8j3A6

ended Dec. 31, 2014.  As of Dec. 31, 2015, Genius Brands had $18.9
million in total assets, $4.74 million in total liabilities and

GLOBAL ATLANTIC: Moody's Hikes Senior Debt Rating From Ba1
----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has upgraded the long-term issuer rating
of Global Atlantic Financial Life Limited (GAFLL) to Baa3 from Ba1
and the insurance financial strength (IFS) rating of its primary
life and annuity operating entities, including Commonwealth Annuity
and Life Insurance Company (Commonwealth), First Allmerica
Financial Life Insurance Company, and Forethought Life Insurance
Company (collectively Global Atlantic Life & Annuity) to A3 from
Baa1. Moody's also upgraded the senior debt rating of Forethought
Financial Group, Inc. to Baa3 from Ba1. The outlook on these
entities is stable.

RATINGS RATIONALE

According to Moody's, the upgrade is driven by Global Atlantic Life
& Annuity's improving business profile, reflecting its growing and
increasingly diversified footprint in the life insurance industry.
Global Atlantic's success in its retail insurance platform, which
includes annuities, preneed, and life insurance, is augmented by
its historical block reinsurance business. Additionally, Global
Atlantic Life & Annuity has increased the diversity of its product
offering and distribution channels which should allow it to
adequately deal with upcoming distribution changes driven by the
Department of Labor (DOL) fiduciary rule.

The rating agency expects that Global Atlantic Life & Annuity will
maintain its strict focus on profitability and continue to generate
consistently strong returns on capital (ROC) while maintaining good
capital levels. Moody's added that the company's financial
flexibility improved with the refinancing of its outstanding bank
term loan in March 2015. The $587.5 million four-year revolving
credit facility ($325 million currently drawn) extends the
company's maturity profile and takes advantage of the low interest
rate environment.

Moody's noted that the company's strengths are tempered by the
rapid expansion of the annuity business, at above industry average
levels over the past few years, given the competitive environment.
However, annuity sales growth has started to moderate and Moody's
expects it will revert to more sustainable levels. Given the
company's emphasis on fixed annuities, disintermediation risk and
related ALM challenges could increase should interest rates rise
rapidly. In addition, the company's current reliance on bank
financing is not consistent with an investment grade capital
structure, although Moody's expects the company to ultimately term
out the drawn portion of the revolving credit facility in the debt
capital markets.

RATING DRIVERS

Moody's said the following factors could lead to an upgrade of
Global Atlantic Life & Annuity's ratings: NAIC company action level
(CAL) risk based capital (RBC) ratio remains above 400%, after
adjusting for captive reinsurers; profitable premium growth is
maintained at levels more consistent with industry levels and well
balanced between life insurance and annuities; and the risk profile
of the insurance liabilities and investments decreases from current
levels.

The rating agency added that the following factors could lead to a
downgrade of the company's ratings: a materially increased risk
profile or growth appetite, including another material acquisition;
reduced profitability of Global Atlantic Life & Annuity with ROC
falling below 10%; a decline in the NAIC CAL RBC ratio to below
400%; or adjusted financial leverage consistently above 25%
(consolidated GAAP).

LIST OF AFFECTED RATINGS

The following ratings were upgraded with a stable outlook:

Commonwealth Annuity and Life Insurance Co.: insurance financial
strength rating to A3 from Baa1;

First Allmerica Financial Life Insurance Co.: insurance financial
strength rating to A3 from Baa1;

Forethought Life Insurance Company: insurance financial strength
rating to A3 from Baa1;

Forethought Financial Group, Inc.: senior unsecured debt rating to
Baa3 from Ba1;

Global Atlantic Financial Life Limited: long-term issuer rating to
Baa3 from Ba1.

In 2015, Commonwealth Annuity and Life Insurance Company, the
primary life operating company of Global Atlantic Financial Group,
reported a statutory net gain of $59 million. As of 2015,
Commonwealth Annuity and Life Insurance Company reported capital
and surplus of $2.2 billion, and statutory assets of $12.3 billion.


GREEN BOX: Directed to Deposit $10K Monthly in Escrow
-----------------------------------------------------
Judge Beth E. Hanan of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern
District of Wisconsin, denied the Motion filed by Ability Insurance
Company which sought to prohibit Green Box NA Green Bay, LLC from
using cash collateral.

Judge Hanan held that as there is no cash collateral currently
being generated on account of the Debtor's real estate, Ability
Insurance's Motion was moot.

Judge Hanan directed the Debtor to pay into escrow one-twelfth of
the real estate taxes based on the 2015 real estate tax bill for
the premises, which is subject to the mortgage of Ability
Insurance, in the monthly amount of $10,247.  

Judge Hanan held that the escrow will be a separate Debtor in
Possession account at East/West Bank and will be the additional
collateral of Ability Insurance. She further held that it will be
used for no other purpose other than to pay the real estate taxes
when they become due or, in the event of a default, will compensate
Ability Insurance for the accruing real estate taxes.

E.D. Wis. Case No. 16-24179) on April 27, 2016.  The petition was
signed by Ronald Van Den Heuvel, manager.  The Debtor is

GROUP 1 AUTOMOTIVE: Moody's Ba1 CFR Unaffected by SGL-2 Rating
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned an SGL-2 Speculative Grade
Liquidity rating to Group 1 Automotive, Inc. ( "Group 1 "). All
other ratings, including the company's Ba1 Corporate Family rating,
are unaffected.

"The SGL-2 rating, reflecting good liquidity, recognizes Group 1's
prudent liquidity management, from a balanced maturity profile to
its favorable external financing relationships, including the
recently renewed and upsized $1.8 billion facility, " stated
Moody's Vice President Charlie O'Shea.  "We note that, like its
other rated peers, the level of floor plan assistance typically
covers a significant portion of the company's floor plan interest
expense, which adds to this favorable profile. "

Assignments:

Issuer: Group 1 Automotive, Inc.

-- Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating, Assigned SGL-2

RATINGS RATIONALE

Moody's said,  "The Ba1 rating considers Group 1's improved credit
metrics, with meaningful improvement resulting from the change in
lease multiple to 5 times from 8 times, as well as its strong
market position in the still very fragmented auto retailing
segment. The rating also considers Group 1's historically-favorable
brand mix, with around 77% of new vehicle sales revenue coming from
luxury and import brands, and its operating profit trend away from
new vehicle sales. Group 1's business model, with solid parts and
service and finance and insurance segments, and improving used car
retail sales, reduces reliance on new car sales. Finally, Group 1
is moderately diverse geographically, with stores in more than a
dozen U.S. states, the United Kingdom, and Brazil. The stable
outlook reflects our belief that Group 1 will continue to manage
its cost structure such that its operating performance remains
resilient even in the event of a downturn and credit metrics remain
largely in balance. An upgrade could occur if debt/EBITDA was
maintained around 3.5 times and EBIT/interest was sustained above 5
times. Ratings could be downgraded if either negative trends in
operating performance or financial policy decisions resulted in
debt/EBITDA rising above 4.75 times or EBIT/Interest falling below
4 times, or if the company's liquidity were to weaken. "

Headquartered in Houston, Texas, Group 1 Automotive is a leading
full-service auto retailer, with dealerships in the US, UK, and
Brazil, with LTM March 2016 revenues of around $11 billion.


HAJ INC: Can Use Bank of the West Cash Collateral on Interim Basis
------------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Peter C. McKittrick of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Oregon, authorized HAJ, Inc. dba Christenson Oil, to
use cash collateral on an interim basis.

Bank of the West contends that the Debtor is indebted to it in the
amount of $994,579, which is secured by substantially all of the
Debtor's business assets, including accounts receivable, but
excluding real property.

The Debtor was ordered to establish a new operating account with
Bank of the West, for use and payment of the Debtor's monthly
expenses as permitted by the Court.  The Debtor was further ordered
to close all other pre-petition accounts and terminate all aspects
of any revolving line of credit.  The Debtor was directed to
immediately transfer funds from all its accounts held at financial
institutions, together with any other cash collateral held by the
Debtor, into the Cash Collateral Account.

Bank of the West was granted, among others, replacement liens on
all of the Debtor's personal property assets or interests in
personal property acquired on or after the Petition Date, of the
same types and categories that Bank of the West had a lien on or
interest in, as of the Petition Date.  

The approved Budget covers a period of 15 weeks, starting with the
week beginning July 18, 2016 and ending with the week beginning
October 24, 2016.  The Budget provides for, among others, cash
disbursements in the amount of $113,650 for the week beginning July
25, 2016; $105,750 for the week beginning August 1, 2016; $120,532
for the week beginning August 8, 2016; and $163,272 for the week
beginning August 15, 2016.

The final hearing on the Debtor's Cash Collateral Motion is
scheduled on August 18, 2016 at 10:00 a.m.

HALCON RESOURCES: Incurs $382 Million Net Loss in 2nd Quarter
-------------------------------------------------------------
Halcon Resources Corporation filed with the Securities and Exchange
Commission its quarterly report on Form 10-Q disclosing a net loss
available to common stockholders of $382 million on $106 million of
total operating revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2016,
compared to a net loss available to common stockholders of $1.10
billion on $168 million of total operating revenues for the three
months ended June 30, 2016.

For the six months ended June 30, 2016, the Company reported a net
loss available to common stockholders of $949 million on $187
million of total operating revenues compared to a net loss
available to common stockholders of $1.70 billion on $304 million
of total operating revenues for the same period in 2015.

As of June 30, 2016, the Company had $2.45 billion in total assets,
$3.12 billion in total liabilities, $213 million in redeemable
noncontrolling interest and a total stockholders' deficit of $885
million.

As of June 30, 2016, Halcon's liquidity was approximately $373
million, which consisted of $450 million of revolver availability
less $101 million drawn on the revolver plus $24 million in cash
and cash equivalents.  The Company agreed to limit the availability
under its revolving credit facility from $700 million to $450
million as part of the waiver agreement it executed with its bank
group on May 26, 2016.  The Company has a commitment from its bank
group, led by JP Morgan and Wells Fargo, for a $600 million debtor
in possession credit facility with $500 million of availability
once the interim order approving the DIP is received from the
bankruptcy court.  The DIP will convert to a reserve-based
revolving credit facility with $600 million in availability upon
its exit from bankruptcy.

During the second quarter of 2016, the Company incurred capital
costs of $43 million on drilling and completions, and $1 million on
infrastructure, seismic and leasehold acquisitions.  In addition,
Halcon incurred $24 million for capitalized interest, G&A and other
in the second quarter.

HALCON RESOURCES: Moody's Cuts PDR to D-PD on Ch. 11 Filing
-----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded Halcon Resources Corporation's
Probability of Default Rating (PDR) to D-PD from Caa2-PD, following
the company's announcement that it has filed voluntary petitions
under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code in the United
States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware to pursue a
pre-packaged plan of reorganization. Concurrently, Moody's
downgraded HalcOn's Corporate Family Rating (CFR) to Ca from Caa2,
its senior unsecured notes rating to C from Caa3, its senior
secured third lien notes to Ca from Caa2, and its senior secured
second lien notes to Caa1 from B3.

Outlook Actions:

Issuer: Halcon Resources Corporation

-- Outlook, Remains Stable

RATINGS RATIONALE

The downgrade of HalcOn's PDR to D-PD is a result of the bankruptcy
filing. The downgrade of HalcOn's other ratings reflect Moody's
view of the potential overall and instrument specific recoveries,
based on the company's capital structure entering bankruptcy. The
restructuring plan calls for the elimination of approximately $1.8
billion in long-term debt, and a commensurate reduction in annual
interest expense of more than $200 million. The company expects its
restructuring plan to conclude in approximately 45-60 days.

Shortly following this rating action, Moody's will withdraw all
ratings for the company consistent with Moody's practice for
companies operating under the purview of the bankruptcy courts
wherein information flow typically becomes much more limited.

HalcOn Resources Corporation is an independent exploration and
production (E&P) company with a primary focus on liquids-rich
resource plays in North Dakota and East Texas.



HALCON RESOURCES: Seeks Court OK of Prepackaged Restructuring Plan
------------------------------------------------------------------
Halcon Resources Corporation and certain of its subsidiaries had
filed voluntary petitions under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code
to pursue a pre-packaged plan of reorganization in accordance with
its previously announced comprehensive balance sheet restructuring
efforts.

Under the Restructuring Plan, the Company will eliminate
approximately $1.8 billion in long-term debt and will reduce annual
interest expense by more than $200 million.  The Restructuring Plan
also provides that existing holders of Halcón common stock will
receive 4.0% of the common stock of the reorganized Company
(subject to dilution set forth in the Restructuring Plan).

The bankruptcy filing follows Halcon's successful solicitation for
support of the Restructuring Plan from the Company's 13.0% 3rd Lien
Notes due 2022, its three tranches of senior unsecured notes
comprised of its 9.75% Senior Notes due 2020, its 8.875% Senior
Notes due 2021, and its 9.25% Senior Notes due 2022, its 8.0%
Convertible Note due 2020 and its 5.75% Series A Perpetual
Convertible Preferred Stock.  This solicitation resulted in
overwhelming support for the Restructuring Plan with the Company
having received acceptances from more than 95% in number and over
99% in aggregate amount of claims and interests in each Affected
Stakeholder class that voted on the Plan.  In addition, as
previously announced, Halcon also reached an agreement with holders
of more than 51% in aggregate principal amount of its 8.625% and
12.0% 2nd Lien Notes due 2020 and 2022 regarding certain amendments
to the indentures governing such notes in exchange for the
commitment of such holders to support the Restructuring Plan.

On July 25, 2016 the Company drew down its revolving credit
facility and therefore currently has $359 million in cash on hand.
On July 27, 2016, Halcon received a commitment from certain lenders
in its existing reserve-based credit facility to provide the
Company with $500 million of availability under a debtor in
possession credit facility which will convert into a reserve-based
revolving credit facility, led by JPMorgan and Wells Fargo, to
provide the Company with a $600 million debtor in possession credit
facility with $500 million of availability once the interim order
approving the DIP is received from bankruptcy court.  Halcon plans
to repay outstanding amounts due on its existing revolver once the
DIP is approved by the court.  The DIP facility will convert into a
reserve-based revolving credit facility with
availability of $600 million upon emergence from bankruptcy.
Halcon's current cash on hand in addition to the commitment for the
DIP and Exit Facility provides the Company with ample liquidity
both during and after the restructuring process.

The Company has been in contact with the New York Stock Exchange
and anticipates the continued listing of its common stock on the
NYSE throughout the bankruptcy process so long as the Company
continues to meet the minimum continued listing standards set forth
by the NYSE.

The Restructuring Plan is expected to conclude in approximately
45-60 days.  The Company plans, subject to approval by the
Bankruptcy Court, to continue to pay vendors, royalty owners and
other parties in ordinary course throughout the bankruptcy
process.

Halcon filed its voluntary Chapter 11 petitions and pre-packaged
plan in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware in
Wilmington.  Information about the cases can be found on
http://dm.epiq11.com/Halcon. The Company has also posted FAQs and
other restructuring information on its website at
http://www.halconresources.com.

The commencement of the bankruptcy cases constitutes an event of
default that accelerated the Company's obligations under the
following debt instruments.  Any efforts to enforce such payment
obligations under the Debt Documents are automatically stayed as a
result of the filing of the Petitions and the holders' rights of
enforcement in respect of the Debt Documents are subject to the
applicable provisions of the Bankruptcy Code.

HALCON RESOURCES: Wants $600 -Mil. DIP Facility
-----------------------------------------------
Halcon Resources Corporation and its affiliated Debtors ask the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware for
authorization to obtain postpetition financing and to use cash
collateral.

          The Debtors' Prepetition Secured Indebtedness

     The Revolving Credit Facility

The Debtor Halcon Resources Corporation entered into a Revolving
Credit Agreement with JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as administrative
agent.  The Revolving Credit Agreement was secured by a Guaranty
and Collateral Agreement, where each of the Debtors granted a
first-priority lien on substantially all of their property in favor
of the Revolving Credit Agreement Agent and the Revolving Credit
Agreement Lenders.  The Debtors' primary assets that serve as
Prepetition Collateral are their oil and gas reserves, which have a
risked reserve value of between $1,674 million and $1,843 million.

The Debtors owe the Revolving Credit Agreement Secured Parties the
amount of $450 million in unpaid principal, plus any applicable
interest, fees and other expenses.

     The Prepetition Swap Agreements

Debtor Halcon Resources Corporation enters into financial
derivative contracts primarily to hedge the Debtors' exposure to
commodity price risks with certain DIP Lenders pursuant to a
hedging policy, in the ordinary course of business.  The Debtors
intend to provide superpriority administrative claims status and
DIP Liens to secure any obligations under any Swap Agreement
entered into prior to the Petition Date and to which a Secured Swap
Provider that has signed a consent agreement and waiver of its
right to terminate any Prepetition Swap Agreement, is a
counterparty.  Each prepetition Swap Agreement is subject to the
same priorities and protections provided to the DIP Loans.

The Prepetition Swap Agreements and the obligations under the
Prepetition Swap Agreements constitute Prepetition Revolver
Obligations secured by the prepetition collateral.  The Debtors did
not post collateral specific to any of their Prepetition Swap
Agreements as they are secured by the prepetition collateral
pursuant to the terms of the Revolving Credit Agreement and the
Prepetition Swap Agreements.

     The Second Lien Notes

Debtor Halcon Resources Corporation issued, in a private placement,
$700 million in aggregate principal amount of 8.625% Senior Secured
Notes due 2020 and $112.8 million in aggregate principal amount of
12% Senior Secured Notes due 2022, with each of the other Debtors
as named guarantors and U.S. Bank National Association as indenture
trustee and collateral trustee.

The obligations under the Second Lien Notes are secured by
second-priority liens on the Prepetition Collateral.  As of the
Petition Date, the aggregate amount outstanding Prepetition Second
Lien Obligations owed to the Second Lien Facility Agent and the
Second Lien Noteholders is approximately $812.8 million, plus any
applicable interest, fees, and other expenses.

     The Third Lien Notes

Debtor Halcon Resources Corporation issued approximately $1.02
billion in aggregate principal amount of 13% Third Lien Senior
Secured Notes due 2022, with each of the other Debtors names
guarantors therein and U.S. Bank National Association as indenture
trustee and collateral trustee.  The obligations under the Third
Lien Notes and the Prepetition Second Lien Obligations are secured
by third-priority liens on the prepetition collateral.  As of the
Petition Date, the aggregate amount outstanding Prepetition
Third Lien Obligations owed to the Third Lien Indenture Trustee and
the Third Lien Noteholder under the Third Lien Notes is
approximately $1.02 billion, plus any applicable interest, fees,
and other expenses.

     The Intercreditor Agreement

Pursuant to the Intercreditor Agreement between the Revolving
Credit Agreement Agent and the Second Lien Indenture Trustee, liens
in favor of the Second Lien Notes on the prepetition collateral are
subordinated to liens on the prepetition collateral that secure the
Revolving Credit Agreement.  

Under the terms of the Intercreditor Agreement, the security
interests in the assets that secure the Third Lien Notes and the
guarantees are contractually subordinated to liens that secure the
Senior Revolving Credit Agreement, the Second Lien Notes and
certain other permitted indebtedness.  The Third Lien Notes and the
guarantees are effectively subordinated to the Revolving Credit
Agreement, the Second Lien Notes and such other indebtedness to the
extent of the value of such assets.  The Third Lien Notes are fully
and unconditionally guaranteed on a senior basis by the Guarantors
and by certain future subsidiaries of the Debtors.

The Debtors relate that the orderly continuation of the Debtors’
operations and the preservation of their going concern value are
largely dependent upon their ability to convert Prepetition
Collateral into Cash Collateral and use it to support the
Debtors’ business operations.  The Debtors further relate that
absent authority to use Cash Collateral, even for a limited period
of time, the continued operation of the Debtors’ business would
suffer, causing immediate and irreparable harm to the Debtors,
their respective estates, and their creditors.

The Debtors disclose that they are seeking approval of the payment
of prepetition secured debt from the proceeds of postpetition
secured debt — specifically that the proceeds of the DIP Facility
approved on an interim basis are to be used to (i) refund,
refinance, replace and repay in full the Prepetition Revolver
Obligations and (ii) refund, refinance, replace and repay in full
all outstanding letters of credit under the Revolving Credit
Agreement.  The Debtors add that the Prepetition Swap Agreements
held by the Consenting Prepetition Secured Swap Providers — all
of whom are Revolving Credit Agreement Lenders and DIP Lenders —
are subject to the Roll-Up as well.

The Debtors tell the Court that approval of the Roll-Up within four
business days of the Petition Date is a condition precedent to the
DIP Credit Agreement.

The DIP Credit Agreement contains, among others, the following
relevant terms:

     (a) DIP Facility: The Lenders will provide a senior secured
debtor-in-possession reserve-based revolving credit facility which
would, upon the satisfaction of certain conditions, convert into a
senior secured exit reserve-based credit facility, in each case in

              About Halcon Resources Corporation

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

Halcon Resources reported a net loss available to common
stockholders of $2 billion on $550 million of total operating
revenues for the year ended Dec. 31, 2015, compared to net income
available to common stockholders of $283 million on $1.14 billion
of total operating revenues for the year ended Dec. 31, 2014.

                           *      *      *

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

In September 2015, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its
corporate credit rating on Oklahoma City-based Halcon Resource
Corp. to 'SD' (selective default) from 'B-'.  "The downgrade
follows Halcon's announcement that it reached an agreement with
holders of portions of its senior unsecured notes to exchange the
notes for new senior secured third-lien notes," said Standard &
Poor's credit analyst Ben Tsocanos.

The case is In re Halcon Resources Corporation, et. al. (Bankr. D.
Del. Case No. 16-11724).



HAWAIIAN HOLDINGS: Moody's Hikes CFR to B1, Outlook Stable
----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service upgraded the debt ratings of Hawaiian
Holdings, Inc. including the Corporate Family to B1 from B2,
Probability of Default to B1-PD from B2-PD and the Class A and
Class B tranches of the company's Series 2013-1 Enhanced Equipment
Trust Certificates (EETC) to Baa1 from Baa2 and to Ba2 from Ba3,
respectively. Moody's also raised the Speculative Grade Liquidity
Rating to SGL-1 from SGL-2. The outlook is stable.

Upgrades:

Issuer: Hawaiian Airlines, Inc.

-- Senior Secured Enhanced Equipment Trust Series 2013-1 Cl. B,
    Upgraded to Ba2 from Ba3

-- Senior Secured Enhanced Equipment Trust Series 2013-1 Cl. A,
    Upgraded to Baa1 from Baa2

-- Issuer: Hawaiian Holdings, Inc.

--  Probability of Default Rating, Upgraded to B1-PD from B2-PD

-- Corporate Family Rating, Upgraded to B1 from B2

-- Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating, raised to SGL-1 from SGL-2

Outlook Actions:

Issuer: Hawaiian Airlines, Inc.

-- Outlook, Remains Stable

Issuer: Hawaiian Holdings, Inc.

-- Outlook, Remains Stable

RATINGS RATIONALE

"The B1 rating balances credit metrics that are strong for the
assigned rating against the company's small size, limited network,
pressure on labor costs and execution risk in its fleet plan, "
said Moody's Senior Credit Officer, Jonathan Root. Moody's
anticipates that lower fuel expense and the sharp decline in
capital expenditures since 2014 will lead to about $600 million of
free cash flow in the 24 months to December 2016. Hawaiian will
have used the majority of this cash by the end of 2016 to retire
debt including convertible notes and convertible note warrants,
taking Debt to EBITDA to below 2.0 times and strengthening other
credit metrics.

"The focused reduction of debt and foregoing any meaningful amounts
of share repurchases since 2014 is a differentiated strategy
relative to the six other US airlines Moody's rates, " continued
Root. The strengthening of the balance sheet precedes the induction
of Airbus A321neo aircraft into the fleet, with first delivery
scheduled for late 2017. Moody's estimates the cost to Hawaiian of
the 16 A321 aircraft on order at about $800 million including spare
engines, spread mainly between 2017 and 2019. Anticipation that
annual operating cash flow remains above $350 million given Moody's
expectation that Brent oil remains below $60 per barrel through
2018 provides Hawaiian the ability to fund a majority of this
investment from operating cash flow, limiting a significant
re-levering of the capital structure. The B1 rating also considers
the benefit of the company's revenue diversity, spread about evenly
across its US domestic, inter-island and international networks,
and its near-monopolistic position in the Hawaiian inter-island
routes, balanced by the sustained higher capital investment beyond
2019 as the order book includes six Airbus A330-800neos (estimated
investment of $650 million with first delivery scheduled for 2019)
and the concentration of service to Hawaii.

The competitive nature of the company's US and international
networks constrains the ratings. Although according to Hawaiian, it
is the leader in seat share in the US West Coast to Hawaii market,
the larger US airlines will remain significant competitors.
Additionally, Moody's believes that competition from other US
carriers will continue to fluctuate, including from at least one
new entrant while Hawaiian is deploying the A321s.

The upgrade of the EETCs accompanies the upgrade of the Corporate
Family rating. The belief that the six A330-200s that serve as
collateral will remain important to the network sustains a
relatively low probability of rejection of the transaction under an
insolvency scenario and mitigates a mid-single percentage point
decline in the equity cushion versus Moody's expectations when it
rated the deal in 2013.

The Speculative Grade Liquidity rating of SGL-1 reflects the
company's cash in excess of $600 million, strong free cash flow and
the full availability of the $175 million revolving credit
facility.

The stable outlook reflects that the execution risk of inducting
the A321s mitigates any upwards rating pressure of the strong
metrics profile. A positive rating action could follow if Hawaiian
sustains EBITDA margin above 25%, EBIT to Interest above 3.5 times,
Retained Cash Flow to Net Debt above 28% and Debt to EBITDA below
3.0 times while inducting the A321s. A downgrade of the ratings
could follow if EBITDA margin approaches 15%, Debt to EBITDA
approaches 5.0 times, EBIT to Interest approaches 1.5 times, or
Retained Cash Flow to Net Debt approaches 15%.

Hawaiian Holdings, Inc., headquartered in Honolulu, HI, is the
holding company parent of Hawaiian Airlines, Inc. Hawaiian Airlines
is Hawaii's biggest and longest-serving airline, as well as the
largest provider of passenger air service to Hawaii from the
continental US. Hawaiian operates over 200 flights per day,
spanning services connecting mainly the U.S. west coast, Asia,
Australia, New Zealand, and the South Pacific to Hawaii and flights
connecting the six major islands of Hawaii. The company reported
revenue of $2.3 billion in 2015.


HCSB FINANCIAL: Eight Proposals Approved at Annual Meeting
----------------------------------------------------------
The 2016 annual meeting of shareholders of HCSB Financial
Corporation was held on July 28, 2016, at which the shareholders:

   (1) approved an amendment to the Company's Amended and Restated
       Bylaws to declassify the Board of Directors;

   (2) elected Michael S. Addy, Clay D. Brittain, III, Gerald R.
       Francis, Jan H. Hollar, James C. Nesbitt and John T.
       Pietrzak to the Board of Directors;

   (3) approved an amendment to the Company's Articles of
       Incorporation to authorize a class of non-voting common
       stock;

   (4) approved an amendment to the Company's Articles of
       Incorporation to effect a 1-for-100 reverse stock split of
       the voting common stock and the non-voting common stock;

   (5) approved the HCSB Financial Corporation 2016 Equity
       Incentive Plan;

   (6) approved the compensation of the Company's named executive
       officers as disclosed in the proxy statement (this was a
       non-binding, advisory vote);

   (7) approved a non-binding resolution to hold Say-on-Pay
       votes every year; and

   (8) ratitied the appointment of Elliott Davis Decosimo, LLC
       as the Company's independent registered public accountants.

Each of these directors will serve a one-year term, expiring at the
2017 Annual Meeting of Shareholders.

The Company's other continuing director, Singleton D. Bailey, was
elected at the 2015 Annual Meeting of Shareholders to serve a
three-year term, expiring at the 2018 Annual Meeting of
Shareholders, and Mr. Bailey will not be up for re-election until
the expiration of his current term at the 2018 Annual Meeting of
Shareholders.  Each of the Company's directors also serves as a
director of the Company's wholly-owned bank subsidiary, Horry
County State Bank.

As disclosed in the Company's 2016 proxy statement, the service of
Mr. Francis and Mr. Nesbitt on the Company's and the Bank's Board
of Directors was subject to the receipt of certain regulatory
approvals.  The Company and the Bank received the necessary
regulatory approvals prior to the Annual Meeting, and therefore,
Mr. Francis and Mr. Nesbitt joined the Boards of Directors
immediately upon their election.

                         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 June 30, 2016, HCSB Financial had $382.48 million in total
assets, $345.21 million in total liabilities and $37.26 million in
total shareholders' equity.

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 Dec. 31, 2015.


HCSB FINANCIAL: Reports Second Quarter 2016 Financial Results
-------------------------------------------------------------
HCSB Financial Corporation reported net income of $9.91 million on
$3.05 million of total interest income for the three months ended
June 30, 2016, compared to a net loss of $407,000 on $3.50 million
of total interest income for the same period in 2015.

As of June 30, 2016, HCSB Financial had $382.48 million in total
assets, $345.21 million in total liabilities and $37.26 million in
total shareholders' equity.

"We have made tremendous progress during the second quarter and
through the first half of 2016.  The capital raise, the repurchase
of our senior securities, and the hiring of key executives, are all
important accomplishments on our road to profitability, efficiency,
and increased loan production.  Our Company is now
well-capitalized, and we have a strong team of commercial bankers
in place to begin building our loan portfolio with quality
commercial loans in our markets," remarked Jan Hollar, chief
executive officer of the Company and the Bank.

The new executive team is now in place and leading the Bank into
its next chapter.  In addition to Jan Hollar as CEO, the Company
announced the following additions to the executive team during the
first half of 2016: Jack McElveen as chief credit officer, Rick
Patterson as chief operating officer, and Jennifer Harris as chief
financial officer.

                      Financial Highlights

During the second quarter, the Company raised $45 million in
capital in an offering led by a group of accredited institutional
investors, as well as $1.4 million in a follow-on offering to
legacy shareholders, employees, and other investors.  Portions of
this capital has already been used to accomplish several of the
Company's goals.  First, the Company repurchased all of its
outstanding trust preferred securities as well as the preferred
stock issued to the United States Treasury as part of the Troubled
Asset Relief Program (TARP), ending the Company's obligation to
Treasury. In addition, the Company was able to repurchase
subordinated debt that the Company issued to certain accredited
investors in 2010.

The Company is committed to improving its asset quality through a
planned bulk sale of nonperforming assets.  A portion of the
capital raised is being used for this purpose.  The terms of the
sale have been finalized, and the sale closed early in the third
quarter of 2016.

Also during the second quarter, the Company booked $9 million in
new loans, the largest portion of which were in the commercial real
estate category.  This uptick in loan production is in line with
the Bank's strategy to increase lending within prudent limits and
high standards of credit quality.

            About Heck Industries

Heck Industries, Inc., sought Chapter 11 protection (Bankr. M.D.
La. Case No. 16-10516) on April 29, 2016, in Baton Rouge,
Louisiana. The Hon. Douglas D. Dodd is the case judge. William E.
Steffes, Esq., Noel Steffes Melancon, Esq., and Barbara B. Parsons,
Esq., at Steffes, Vingiello & McKenzie, L.L.C., serve as the
Debtor's bankruptcy counsel.

The Debtor is the owner of a concrete supply business which has
operated throughout Louisiana since 1957. The Debtor's chapter 11
case was precipitated by a severe strain on collection of its
accounts receivable due to, among other things, unfortunate weather
conditions hampering the Debtor's ability to complete numerous jobs
awarded to it.

The Debtor estimated $1 million to $10 million in assets and debt.

HIRA LLC: Wants 120 More Days to File Disclosure Statement and Plan

period for filing of a Disclosure Statement and Chapter 11 Plan for

approval of the disclosure statement detailing the sale plan
proposed by Jeffrey Herrmann Jaffe.

information regarding the sale of Mr. Jaffe's property located at
300 Alameda Circle, Olmos Park, Texas.

is through a propose sale of the property," the creditor said in
the filing.  "Little information is given about parameters for such
a sale."

of Mr. Jaffe's bankruptcy case.

----------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Connecticut, Hartford
Division, entered an order discharging Nancy Shaffer from her
duties as Patient Care Ombudsman for Johnson Memorial Medical

deemed to end the need for her oversight, thus, rendering her
termination of appointment appropriate.

entry of the Order, but no later than thirty (30) day from the
entry of the Order, the Patient Care Ombudsman shall turn over to
the Debtors any documents provided to her by the Debtors and other
third parties during the course of her appointment as Patient Care
Ombudsman. Nothing shall in any way limit or otherwise affect the
Patient Care Ombudsman's obligation under 11 U.S.C. Sec. 333(c)(1)
or other applicable law, to maintain patient information, including
patient records, as confidential and no such information shall be
released by the Patient Care Ombudsman without further Order of the
Court.

Service downgraded KEMET Corp.'s Corporate Family Rating to 'Caa1'
from 'B2' and the Probability of Default Rating to 'Caa1-PD' from
'B2- PD' based on Moody's expectation that KEMET's liquidity will
be pressured by maturing liabilities and negative free cash flow
due to the interest burden and continued operating losses at the
Film and Electrolytic segment.

As reported by the TCR on Aug. 9, 2013, Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services lowered its corporate credit rating on KEMET to 'B-' from
'B+'.  "The downgrade is based on continued top-line and margin
pressures and lagging results from the restructuring of the Film &
Electrolytic [F&E] business, which combined with cyclical weak
end-market demand, has resulted in sustained, elevated leverage
well in excess of 5x, persistent negative FOCF, and diminishing
liquidity," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Alfred
Bonfantini.

KEMET to 'stable' from 'negative'.  S&P affirmed the ratings,

KENNETH BELLOWS: Final Approval of Disclosure Statement Denied
--------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Gary Spraker of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Alaska denied final approval of Kenneth Bellows' and
Fly-In-Fish, Inc.'s joint disclosure statement and confirmation of
the debtors' plan of reorganization.  Judge Spraker also denied
First Bank's motion for relief from stay.

Judge Spraker held, "The Disclosure Statement fails to address
Marlys Hanson's interests in the real property, the debtor entity
FIFII, and the Pilot House. Nor does the Disclosure Statement
discuss Ms. Hanson's expectations on sale, or explain how her
interests and expectations would affect any distribution on sale of
these assets. For these reasons, the court must deny final approval
of the Disclosure Statement.

"Although denial of the Disclosure Statement precludes
confirmation, the court finds that the Plan as proposed would be
feasible based on the current valuation of the Inn at $2.2 million.
The debtors' business projections are supported by the record, and
there is a realistic prospect that the Inn would sell at a
sufficiently higher price at the end of five years to pay all
necessary obligations under the proposed Plan. These findings
require denial of First Bank's Motion for Relief from Stay. The
court also notes that First Bank has objected to its treatment and
the debtors have offered no evidence to support the cramdown
interest rate provided in the Plan for the bank's claim."

------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Shelley D. Rucker of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the

to use cash collateral on a final basis.

The Debtor is indebted to First Volunteer Bank in the amount of
$2,058,787.67 as of June 3, 2016.  First Volunteer Bank has valid
liens and security interests in substantially all the Debtor's real
property assets, including the Debtor's real estate at 6103 Hwy
411, 2289 Parksville Road, 6076 Hwy 411, and 6056 Hwy 411, each in

product, offspring, rents or profits from the prepetition
collateral, and all other cash, negotiable instruments, documents

Judge Rucker acknowledged that the Debtor requires funds to pay
suppliers, wages, salaries, taxes, repair and maintenance expenses,
and other operating expenses in order to continue present
operations and to maintain and preserve the bankruptcy estate.  She
further acknowledged that without authorization to use Cash
Collateral, the Debtor’s continued business operations would be
jeopardized to the detriment of the Debtor, the Debtor’s
creditors, and bankruptcy estate.

First Volunteer Bank was granted a security interest in all
proceeds, products, offspring, rents, or profits of Prepetition
Collateral acquired by the estate after the Filing Date.  It was
also granted a replacement lien and security interest in all of the
prepetition collateral and proceeds thereof, subject and
subordinate to amounts required to be paid to the Office of the
U.S. Trustee and post-petition professional fees payable to the
Debtor's counsel in an amount not to exceed $50,000.

The Debtor was directed to make monthly adequate protection
payments to First Volunteer Bank in the amount of $7,200.

PHARMACYTE BIOTECH: Incurs $6.06 Million Net Loss in Fiscal 2016
----------------------------------------------------------------
Pharmacyte Biotech, Inc., filed with the Securities and Exchange
Commission its annual report on Form 10-K disclosing a net loss of
$6.06 million on $0 of revenue for the year ended April 30, 2016,
compared to a net loss of $9.92 million on $0 of revenue for the
year ended April 30, 2015.

As of April 30, 2016, Pharmacyte had $7.16 million in total assets,
$637,639 in total liabilities and $6.52 million in total
stockholders' equity.

"The Company requires substantial additional capital to finance its
planned business operations and expects to incur operating losses
in future periods due to the expenses related to the Company's core
businesses.  The Company has not realized material revenue since it
commenced doing business in the biotechnology sector, and there can
be no assurance that it will be successful in generating revenues
in the future in this sector.  The Company believes that cash as of
April 30, 2016 and the proceeds from the additional sale of
registered and unregistered shares of its common stock will raise
sufficient capital to meet its capital requirements.  From May 1,
2016 through July 29, 2016; the Company raised additional capital
of approximately $1 million in "at-the-market" transactions.  The
Company believes that sales of unregistered shares of its common
stock any public offerings of common stock the Company may engage
in will provide sufficient capital to fund its operations through
July 31, 2017.  However, the Company's ability to raise additional
capital is limited by its inability to use a short form
registration statement on Form S-3.  As of July 29, 2016, the
Company does not meet the eligibility requirements in order for it
to be able to conduct a primary offering of its common stock under
Form S-3 or to file a new Registration Statement on Form S-3.  The
Company may be able to regain the use of Form S-3 if it meets one
or more of the eligibility criteria, including: (i) the aggregate
market value of the Company's common stock held by non-affiliates
exceeds $75 million; or (ii) the common stock is listed and
registered on a national securities exchange.

"If the Company is not able to raise substantial additional capital
in a timely manner, the Company may not be able to commence or
complete its planned clinical trials.

"The Company will continue to be dependent on outside capital to
fund its research and operating expenditures for the foreseeable
future.  If the Company fails to generate positive cash flows or
fails to obtain additional capital when required, the Company may
need to modify, delay or abandon some or all of its business
plans."

Northstar Hallock sold and Executive Compensation overhauled. Kelly
Cardwell at Central Square Management, LLC, wanted to place three
Directors on the PICO Board. And Sean Leder at Leder Holdings was
backing up change efforts with well-articulated press releases.

We ramped RPN in late 2015, in response to Juicer's cutting off the
Q&A at Investor Day (Ya wish you could take that one back, right
Juicer?). Shortly thereafter, Julie Sullivan was replaced on the
PICO Board by Eric Speron. Mr. Speron was not appointed to any
Committees initially.

Our sources tell us that as the pressure on PICO continued to
build, with increasingly frequent and harsh 13Ds from institutional
investors, plus RPN's insightful and eloquent reporting, Kristina
'Maleficent' Leslie and Robert Deuster informed the Board that they
were headed for more peaceful waters.

Our sources tell us that at this point, Mr. Hart panicked. Within a
span of just a few weeks, he would lose three out of six long-time
allies on the Board. And Board composition was of paramount
importance to Juicer in this moment: he was in the process of
pushing through the criminal Hart Employment Agreement (which Mr.
Akin has characterized as negotiated "in bad faith"). Given the
intense shareholder scrutiny and Central Square's repeated demands
for 3 Board seats, Juicer knew he couldn't go crony on the
vacancies created by Mr. Deuster and Mrs. Leslie. But he could put
a crony in one of the three seats.

Seeking to avoid the change agents, our sources tell us Juicer went
to Robotti & Company for a Director suggestion. Robotti put forth
the name of Raymond Marino. Good enough -- but what to do about the
other empty seat? Juicer had to fill it with someone pliable -- and
fast -- cuz both Mr. Deuster and Mrs. Leslie wanted out, and they
weren't waiting around.

Our sources tell us that Juicer called activist defense attorney
Keith Gottfried, Esq., at Morgan Lewis & Bockius, LLP,  and
explained the predicament.

Our sources tell us that, after some quick research, Mr. Gottfried
had just the candidate for Juicer: Howard Brownstein.

Our sources tell us that Mr. Gottfried recommended Mr. Brownstein
because:

   (a) Howie was pounding the pavement looking for directorships;

   (b) from P&F Industries, Howie had a reputation for scratching
his CEO's back;

   (c) at P&F, Howie was only making $46,000;

   (d) at P&F, Howie was in nanocap space and wanted to move up;

   (e) Howie liked the idea of a directorship in San Diego.

Our sources tell us that the most important attribute to Juicer was
Item (a) -- he needed another Director that was CEO-oriented, not
shareholder-oriented. And he needed votes for the criminal Hart
Employment Agreement.

Howie's election to the Board was as certain as death and taxes --
given the dynamics at that point in time, the PICO Board would have
elected a donkey. The Corporate Governance & Nominating Committee
was only comprised of Mrs. Leslie and Carlos 'The NACD-Decorated
Horse Thief' Campbell, at that time. The remaining Directors that
considered Howie's Directorship reads like a PICO list of Most
Wanted: Kenneth 'The Slug' Slepicka, Michael 'The Desperado'
Machado and Mr. Hart.

According to our sources, Howie was handpicked by Juicer (excuse
the fruit-related pun). We find credibility in this account. It
would explain why Howie has been Director-oriented ever since his
arrival. It is coherent with what we characterize as Howie's
coverup of PICOGate. Assuming our sources are correct, Howie owes
Juicer for his Directorship and once PICOGate exploded, it was
payback time -- shareholders be damned."

The bloggers claim that Mr. Brownstein is now paying back the favor
for his appointment to the PICO Board. "Let's look at the PICO 2010
Audit Committee, whose members could be held personally liable for
PICOGate:

   -- Carlos C. Campbell
   -- Robert G. Deuster
   -- Kristina M. Leslie
   -- Richard D. Ruppert, MD
   -- Julie H. Sullivan, Ph.D

Three out of the 5 members of the 2010 Audit Committee were
responsible for voting Howie to his PICO Director seat. Hmmmmmm. .
. ."

Given all of the above, we find the "Independent Director"
designation of Howie to be unpersuasive and unsupported by the
evidence."

The bloggers seek to clarify matters for Mr. Brownstein. "We don't
think Howie smokes chronic. But we have been told that Howie was
dazed and confused by the shareowner voting results. Howie didn't
understand why PICO shareholders would overwhelmingly vote against
him. We'll offer six justifications, Howie:

   a) You are a John Hart appointee;

   b) Your term would be an insupportable 3 years;

   c) You voted for the criminal Hart compensation scheme;

   d) You voted for incremental declassification of PICO's Board
(of which, suspiciously, you are one of the first beneficiaries --
along with The Slug);

   e) You responded inadequately to PICOGate, which we characterize
as a betrayal of shareholder interests; and

   f) You seek $450,000 in compensation over 3 years from
shareowners.

Given a-e, we are at great pains to justify Howie's $450,000 in
compensation. Given a-f, we are at great pains to attach a positive
value to Howie's Directorship. Based on a-f, we calculate that
Howie's tenure as Director has been value destructive for PICO
shareholders.

To make it even clearer: Howie, you have harmed us -- so we move to
toss you out. We hope this clears up any confusion you may suffer."


PIONEER ENERGY: Incurs $30 Million Net Loss in Second Quarter
-------------------------------------------------------------
Pioneer Energy Services Corp. filed with the Securities and
Exchange Commission its quarterly report on Form 10-Q disclosing a
net loss of $29.99 million on $62.3 million of total revenues for
the three months ended June 30, 2016, compared to a net loss of
$77.3 million on $135 million of total revenues for the three
months ended June 30, 2015.

For the six months ended June 30, 2016, the Company reported a net
loss of $57.7 million on $137 million of total revenues compared to
a net loss of $89.3 million on $329 million of total revenues for
the same period a year ago.

As of June 30, 2016, the Company had $751 million in total assets,
$465 million in total liabilities and $285 million in total
shareholders' equity.

"As expected, industry conditions remained challenging during the
second quarter, but we were pleased to see some early signs of
improving activity levels," said Wm. Stacy Locke, president and CEO
of Pioneer Energy Services.  "Opportunities in the drilling segment
finally began to emerge in the second quarter.  A rig that came off
of a long-term contract in the first quarter has continued working
and is expected to remain contracted through the end of the year in
the Permian.  In addition, an earning-not-working rig was relocated
from the Bakken to the Permian and is expected to remain busy all
year as well.  In Appalachia, a one-year term contract expired and
was renewed for an additional year, and we expect to contract up to
two additional rigs from the Bakken into other markets by the end
of the third quarter of 2016. While we are receiving a modestly
higher level of inquiries for our drilling services, pricing
remains very competitive, and current dayrates remain depressed.  

"In Colombia, our rigs remained idle during the quarter; however,
as in the U.S., bidding activity is increasing.  We anticipate that
one or two rigs will go back to work by the fourth quarter of
2016.

"In our Production Services Segment, late in the second quarter, we
saw bidding and activity pick up in our wireline business, and to a
lesser extent, our well servicing business.  Our coiled tubing
business remained soft in the quarter.  We expect to see continued
bidding and utilization increases with an improvement in commodity
prices.  July has been softer given the July 4th holiday and the
recent pullback in oil prices, but customers are indicating an
uptick in activity in the coming months.  We will continue to
manage our costs to ensure we are properly positioned with our
premium equipment and solid customer relationships to fully benefit
from improvements in market conditions.

"In June, we successfully amended our revolving credit facility to
ensure we maintain adequate liquidity and sufficiently flexible
covenant provisions should the market remain challenged.  Given our
outlook and the recent credit facility amendment, we feel we are
positioned to actively participate in the market upturn while
maintaining adequate liquidity.  We continue to believe that we
should be able to fund most, if not all, of our capital needs in
2016 from operating cash flow and with proceeds from the sale of
some SCR drilling rigs."

Working capital at June 30, 2016, was $33.3 million, down from
$45.2 million at Dec. 31, 2015.  The Company'sr cash and cash
equivalents were $14.6 million, up from $14.2 million at year-end
2015.  The increase in cash and cash equivalents during the six
months ended June 30, 2016, is primarily due to $13.6 million of
cash provided by operating activities, which includes early
termination payments received on certain drilling contracts, and
$0.8 million of proceeds from the sale of assets, mostly offset by
$13.2 million of cash used for purchases of property and equipment
and $0.8 million for the payment of debt issuance costs.  The
Company currently has $17.3 million in committed letters of credit
and $95.0 million outstanding under our $175 million revolving
credit facility.

                            *    *    *

As reported by the TCR on March 7, 2016, Moody's Investors Service,
on March 3, 2016, downgraded Pioneer Energy Services Corp.'s
Corporate Family Rating (CFR) to Caa3 from B2, Probability of
Default Rating (PDR) to Caa3-PD from B2-PD, and senior unsecured
notes to Ca from B3.

"The rating downgrades were driven by the material deterioration in
Pioneer Energy's credit metrics through 2015 and our expectation of
continued deterioration through 2016.  The demand outlook for
drilling and oilfield services is extremely weak, as witnessed by
the steep and continued drop in the US rig count" said Sreedhar
Kona, Moody's Vice President. "The negative outlook reflects the
deteriorating fundamentals of the services sector and the
likelihood of covenant breaches"

Pioneer Energy carries a "B+" corporate credit rating from
Standard & Poor's Ratings.


PLANDAI BIOTECHNOLOGY: Incurs $1.18M Loss in Sept. 30 Quarter
-------------------------------------------------------------
Plandai Biotechnology, Inc., filed with the Securities and Exchange
Commission its quarterly report on Form 10-Q disclosing a net loss
of $1.18 million on $40,831 of revenues for the three months ended
Sept. 30, 2015, compared to a net loss of $610,956 on $26,387 of
revenues for the three months ended Sept. 30, 2014.

As of Sept. 30, 2015, Plandai had $7.21 million in total assets,
$16.4 million in total liabilities, and a stockholders' deficit of
$9.14 million.

For the three months ended Sept. 30, 2015, the Company used cash in
operating activities totaling $288,479, which was primarily
attributable to a loss from operations of $1.18 million offset by
several non-cash expense items such as depreciation of $144,213,
stock issued for services of $61,000, interest expense of $195,993
added to debt principal, and deferred lease obligation of $92,373.
Additionally, the loss was offset by changes in assets and
liabilities including a decrease in prepaid and other current
assets of $143,739, an increase in account payable and accrued
liabilities of $163,025, and an increase in accrued interest of
$101,556.  Cash used in investing activities was $5,769, which
consisted of the purchase of fixed assets to be used in production
activities.  Cash provided by financing activities was $305,423
generated primarily from third party loans of $400,000, and the
sale of common stock of $75,000, offset by the payment on notes of
$169,577.  As of Sept. 30, 2015, the Company had current assets of
$142,590 compared to current liabilities of $14,801,412. Included
in current liabilities is $13,955,396 in notes payable, of which
$5,031,120 is long-term debt that has been reclassified as current
due to the Company being out of compliance with certain loan
covenants.

suffered a loss from operations during the years ended June 30,
2015 and 2014, has yet to establish a reliable, consistent and
proven source of revenue to meet its operating costs on an ongoing
basis and currently does not have sufficient available funding to

doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern.


POLYCONCEPT NORTH: Moody's Assigns B2 Corporate Family Rating
-------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service  assigned Polyconcept North America
Holdings, Inc. a B2 Corporate Family Rating (CFR) and B2-PD
Probability of Default Rating (PDR) for the planned LBO of the
company. At the same time, Moody's assigned the company's proposed
$435 million 7-year first lien term loan a rating of B1. The rating
outlook is stable. At the close of this transaction, all ratings
for the pre-LBO rated entity Polyconcept Finance B.V. will be
withdrawn.

Polyconcept is in the process of being acquired by an affiliate of
private equity firm Charlesbank Capital Partners for approximately
$975 million, including the repayment of existing debt and related
fees and expenses. Proceeds from the proposed $435 million first
lien term loan and a proposed $175 million second lien term loan
(unrated) will be used to repay existing debt of approximately $390
million, fund the $560 million equity purchase price for the
company, and pay an estimated $25 million of fees and expenses.

According to Moody's AVP - Analyst Brian Silver, "The levering up
of Polyconcept's balance sheet stemming from the LBO of the company
materially weakens its credit metrics, but the assignment of the B2
rating reflects our expectation that the company will deleverage at
a healthy clip over the next few years driven by debt repayment and
to a lesser extent growth in profitability. Despite its moderate
size, the company is understood to maintain a solid position in the
highly fragmented promotional products industry, which is a key
factor supporting the rating."

Moody's assigned the following ratings at Polyconcept North America
Holdings, Inc. (subject to final documentation):

Corporate Family Rating of B2;

Probability of Default Rating of B2-PD;

$435 million senior secured first lien term loan due 2023 of B1
(LGD3).

Rating outlook is stable

Moody's will withdraw the following ratings at Polyconcept Finance
B.V. upon the close of this transaction (subject to final
documentation):

Corporate Family Rating of B2;

Probability of Default Rating of B2-PD;

$80 million principal senior secured first lien revolving credit
facility due 2018 of Ba3 (LGD3);

$315 million principal senior secured first lien term loan due 2019
of Ba3 (LGD3).

The stable outlook will be removed at this entity

RATINGS RATIONALE

Polyconcept's B2 Corporate Family Rating (CFR) is constrained by
its modest size relative to other rated consumer durables
companies. The rating also considers the company's high leverage
pro forma for its pending LBO and expectations for top-line and
earnings volatility from foreign exchange exposure and the cyclical
and discretionary nature of the highly fragmented promotional
products industry. Positive rating consideration is given to the
company's solid industry positioning, broad product portfolio,
competitive advantage in low-cost sourcing as a result of high
volume purchases from Asia, quick order turnaround time, and its
diverse geographic presence and customer base. A relatively new
management team and new ownership post-LBO creates some strategic
uncertainty with respect to financial policy and acquisitions going
forward, but Moody's does not anticipate any dividends in the
near-term and expects the company to focus on deleveraging over
time. Polyconcept is expected to maintain a good liquidity profile
over the next 12 months supported by free cash flow generation and
access to its new $88 million ABL.

The stable outlook reflects Moody's expectation that Polyconcept
will achieve moderate top-line and profitability growth from
continuing operations (ex-FX).

A rating upgrade is unlikely in the near term given the company's
moderate size and the cyclical nature of the industry in which the
company operates. Quantitatively, leverage as measured by Moody's
adjusted debt-to-EBITDA would have to be sustained for several
quarters below 4.0 times with EBIT-to-interest above 2.5 times
prior to any upward rating pressure. Alternatively, The ratings
could be downgraded if debt-to-EBITDA approaches 6.0 times or if
EBIT-to-interest falls below 1.5 times. A weakened liquidity
profile highlighted by an increase in revolver reliance could also
lead to a downgrade.

Polyconcept North America Holdings, Inc. headquartered in New
Kensington, PA, designs, sources, distributes and decorates
promotional products through its main offices in the US, Europe,
Hong Kong, Canada and China. The company supplies a wide range of
promotional, lifestyle and gift products to several hundred
thousand companies ranging from small enterprises to global
corporations in over 100 countries with a primary focus on North
America and Europe. The company operates through four segments
including Polyconcept North America (PCNA), Europe, Polyconcept
International Markets (PCIM) and Other, and Private Label. The
company has a long-established sourcing organization in Asia where
most of its products are manufactured. Polyconcept is in the
process of being acquired by an affiliate of PE firm Charlesbank
Capital Partners for $975 million including the repayment of
existing debt and fees and expenses. Polyconcept generated revenues
for the twelve months ended March 31, 2016 of approximately $713
million.


POLYONE CORP: Acquisitions No Impact on Moody's Ba2 Rating
----------------------------------------------------------
PolyOne Corporation's (Ba2 stable) proposed $100 million
incremental first lien term loan will be used to repay $85.5
million in borrowings on the revolver that were drawn on July 26,
2016 to fund the acquisitions of two specialty businesses from
Gordon Holdings (Gordon Composites and Polystrand). The proposed
$100 million incremental term loan due 2022 will also add roughly
$13 million cash to the balance sheet. The incremental $100 million
facility will be incorporated into the existing $550 million senior
secured term loan B rated Ba1 (LGD2), which was originally rated in
October 2015. PolyOne also has $600 million in 5.25% notes due 2023
rated Ba3 (LGD5) and an unrated $400 million ABL revolving credit
facility due 2018. The incremental debt has no impact to PolyOne's
corporate family rating (CFR) of Ba2, its term loan rating of Ba1,
notes rating of Ba3, or stable outlook.

PolyOne Corporation, headquartered in Avon Lake, Ohio, is a global
provider of specialized polymer materials, services, and solutions.
PolyOne develops and manufactures performance enhancing additives,
as well as liquid, fluoropolymer, and silicone colorants. Over the
past eight years the company has restructured the company to focus

million, which added adjacent technologies and expanded end markets
in aerospace and security; the sale of its Resin business for $250
million; the December 2014 acquisition of Accella Performance
Materials for $47 million, to add to its liquid polymer
formulations and consumer products end markets; the December 2015
acquisition of Magenta Master Fibers from BASF (A1, P-1, stable)
for $18 million, that added a specialty provider of solid color
concentrates for the global fiber industry; and in February 2016
the thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) assets from Kraton Performance
Polymers, Inc. (B1 stable) for $73 million, which expanded
applications in adhesives and removable protective films. PolyOne's
revenues were approximately $3.3 billion for the last twelve months
ended June 30, 2016.

------------------------------------------------------------------
The Bankruptcy Court issued an order on July 22, 2016, denying the
Motion to Sell Artifacts without prejudice.  In the Order, the
Bankruptcy Court ruled that Premier Exhibitions, Inc. must pursue
its request to sell the 1987 Artifacts through an adversarial
proceeding in the Bankruptcy Court, not as a contested matter in
the Bankruptcy Court.  The Order did not address the merits of the
Company's request to sell artifacts.  The Company plans to
immediately pursue a sale of the 1987 Artifacts through an
adversarial proceeding.

On June 20, 2016, the Company filed a motion seeking permission to
market and sell a portion of the Titanic artifacts awarded to the
Company pursuant to a 1993 French administrative decree, which are
from time to time referred to as the 1987 Artifacts in Company
filings.

R DUKE ENTERPRISES: Court Allows Cash Use on Interim Basis
----------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Texas
authorized R Duke Enterprises, LLC to use cash collateral on an
interim basis.

The Court acknowledged that an immediate and critical need exists
for the Debtor to obtain funds in order to continue the operation
of its business.  The Court further acknowledged that without such
funds, the Debtor will not be able to pay its direct operating
expenses and obtain goods and services needed to carry on its
business during this sensitive period in a manner that will avoid
irreparable harm to the Debtor’s estate.

The Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts, a secured creditor, has a
lien on all real and personal property owned, claimed or acquired
by Debtor, which is or becomes cash collateral.

The Debtor agreed to take, among others, the following steps to
adequately protect the Comptroller's secured interest in Texas
sales taxes and mixed beverage sales taxes:

     (a) Texas trust fund taxes are not a part of Debtor’s cash,
inventory proceeds or accounts receivable, they do not form a part
of a secured lender's collateral, and they may not be used by a
debtor in its operations. Debtor shall not utilize Texas trust fund
tax receipts for any purpose other than the remittance of those
taxes to the Comptroller.

     (b) The State Tax Lien shall continue and the Comptroller
shall be granted a replacement lien on all of Debtor’s property.
All liens shall attach in the same order of priority as existed on
the Petition Date.

     (c) Beginning August 1, 2016 and continuing on the 1st day of
each month thereafter, Debtor shall remit adequate protection
payments in the amount of $1,000 to the Comptroller toward pre-
petition trust fund taxes. Each $1,000 payment shall be distributed
evenly between sales taxes and mixed beverage sales taxes, and
shall be applied first to the oldest period of liability until paid
in full.

Secured lender ARF Financial, LLC was granted valid, binding,
enforceable, and perfected liens co-extensive with ARF
Financial’s pre-petition liens in all currently owned or
hereafter acquired property and assets of the Debtor.  ARF
Financial was also granted  replacement liens and security
interests co-extensive with its pre-petition liens.

The Debtor was directed to make monthly adequate protection
payments to ARF Financial in the amount of $2,500.

The approve Budget provides for monthly expenses such as $14,000
for food, $800 for beverages, $1,600 for linens, and $2,000 for
electricity, among others.
The final hearing on the Debtor's Cash Collateral Motion is
scheduled on September 12, 2016.  The deadline for the submission
of objections to the Debtor's Motion is set on September 10, 2016
at 4:00 p.m.

SOUTHEASTHEALTH, MO: Fitch Hikes Hospital Bond Ratings to BB+
-------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has removed the rating on the following Cape
Girardeau County Industrial Development Authority bonds issued on
behalf of Southeast Missouri Hospital Association (d/b/a
SoutheastHealth) from Rating Watch Evolving and upgraded it to
'BB+' from 'B':

-- $90.5 million hospital revenue bonds, series 2007.

The Rating Outlook is Stable.

SECURITY

The bonds are secured by a pledge and assignment of the
unrestricted receivables of the Obligated Group and a mortgage lien
on Obligated Group property. Further security is provided by a debt
service reserve fund on the series 2017 and 2016 bonds.

KEY RATING DRIVERS

Sustained Improvements: The upgrade to 'BB+' from 'B' reflects the
sharp improvement in operating profitability and cash flow
generation in 2015 and through the three-month interim period ended
March 31, 2016, following a $55.7 million loss from operations for
2014 due to billing and revenue cycle issues. SoutheastHealth
generated a 10.2% operating EBITDA margin and 3.7x coverage of
maximum annual debt service (MADS), with steady operating results
budgeted for 2016. Cash flow has bolstered liquidity, reaching
$64.2 million at March 31, 2016, up from $54.6 million at fiscal
year-end (FYE) 2014.

Successful Refinancing: The removal from Rating Watch reflects the
successful refinancing of SoutheastHealth's series 2013 bank-placed
debt in March 2016, effectively resolving the debt service coverage
covenant violation and ending the threat of cross-default and
acceleration on the series 2007 bonds.

Revenue Cycle Improvements: SoutheastHealth has corrected the
revenue cycle issues, which were a major contributing factor to the
operating loss in 2014. Days in accounts receivable at March 31 was
a manageable 43.9. The improved profitability and revenue cycle has
led to liquidity growth to $64.2 million at March 31, 2016 from
$54.6 million at FYE 2014 equating to 75 days cash on hand (DCOH)
and 43.3% cash-to-debt by Fitch calculations. Excluding the
Medicaid Provider Tax expense per the bond covenant calculation
brings SoutheastHealth's DCOH to 79 at March 31.

Modest Capital Needs: With a low eight-year average age of plant in
2015 and no major capital needs, SoutheastHealth should generate
sufficient cash flow to support expenditures as well as bolster
liquidity. No additional debt is currently planned.

Mixed Market Profile: Weaker inpatient volume in 2015 was offset by
some ambulatory growth, and SoutheastHealth's market position
remains stable. Still, the service area has relatively low growth
and modest income levels, which is reflected in a 16% Medicaid and
self-pay payor mix in 2015, and may limit future growth in clinical
activity.

RATING SENSITIVITIES

Incremental Improvements Expected: Fitch anticipates
SoutheastHealth will maintain its recent operating profitability
and that incremental balance sheet growth will continue through the
medium term. Upward rating movement requires material improvement
in liquidity to levels more consistent with the 'BBB' category
medians, fueled by sustained operating cash flow.

CREDIT PROFILE

Located in Cape Girardeau (approximately 100 miles south of St.
Louis), SoutheastHealth is a nonprofit health system that operates
a network of more than 50 care locations in 14 communities. The
system includes three acute care hospitals with 232 staffed beds,
and primary and specialty care clinics serving patients across a
four-state region. Total revenues were $345.6 million in 2015 (FYE
Dec. 31).

DEBT REFINANCING

On March 15, 2016, SoutheastHealth issued $21.9 million of series
2016A refunding bonds and $16.9 million of series 2016B refunding
bonds. The bonds were used in part to refund existing 2013A/B bonds
held by Regions Bank, thus avoiding an event of default and
potential acceleration due to its debt service covenant violation
in 2014. The bonds were placed among the existing bondholders, with
covenants and remedies that are consistent with the existing
indenture.

Post issuance, SoutheastHealth had $148.3 million in total
long-term debt outstanding at March 31, 2016, all of which is fixed
rate. Debt service is level, with MADS measured at $9.6 million.

SUSTAINED IMPROVEMENTS

Through 2015 and into the first quarter ended March 31, 2016,
SoutheastHealth generated significant improvement in operating
profitability. Through March, SoutheastHealth produced a 15% EBITDA
margin, up from 10.3% in 2015 and following negative EBITDA in 2013
and 2014. Fitch anticipates these results will continue in 2016, as
SoutheastHealth is tracking well ahead of its budgeted $35 million
in EBITDA (10.2%).

Solid cash flow coupled with modest capital needs is expected to
support liquidity growth, aided by better revenue cycle efforts.
With a substantially replaced internal finance and accounting team,
SoutheastHealth reported a manageable 43.9 days in accounts
receivable through March. Unrestricted cash growth will be
necessary to support further positive rating movement to levels
more consistent with Fitch's investment-grade medians.

DISCLOSURE

SoutheastHealth covenants to provide annual disclosure within 150
days of year end and quarterly disclosure within 45 days of quarter
end (for the first three quarters), to the Municipal Securities
Rulemaking Board's EMMA system.

The Debtor is indebted to secured creditor AS Peleus LLC in the

period commencing July 29, 2016 and ending August 31, 2016 in order

Taylor-Wharton International LLC and Taylor-Wharton Cryogenics LLC
ask the Bankruptcy Court to further extend their exclusive
solicitation period through and including October 28, 2016.

While the Debtors have filed and the Court has approved their
Disclosure Statement and Plan, the Debtors are still currently
engaged in solicitation, with a confirmation hearing on their Plan
scheduled for September 20, 2016.

Accordingly, the Debtors assert, the solicitation period should be
extended to provide the Debtors with an opportunity to seek
confirmation of their Plan without the unnecessary expense and
complication that would result from the tactical filing of any
competing plan for any third-party plan would unnecessarily detract
from the Debtors’ orderly liquidation efforts to the detriment of
all stakeholders.

ULTRA PETROLEUM: Needs Until Feb. 28 to File Plan
-------------------------------------------------
Ultra Petroleum Corp., et al., asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the Southern District of Texas to extend their exclusive period to
file a plan of reorganization to February 28, 2017, and their
exclusive period to solicit votes in favor of a plan to April 30,
2017.

The Debtors' filing and solicitation exclusivity periods expires on
August 29, 2016, and October 26, 2016, respectively.

The Debtors have used their initial Exclusivity Periods to
stabilize their operations, obtain Court approval of important
operational programs, file schedules and statements of financial
affairs for all Debtors, and commence the development of a new
long-term business plan.

The Debtors have engaged in discussions with their key
constituents, including the official committee of unsecured
creditors, three separate unofficial ad hoc committees, and the
Office of the United States Trustee. These discussions, in turn,
cleared the way for entry of all of the Debtors' first-day and
second-day orders on an almost fully consensual basis as well as a
settlement with the Committee regarding the Debtors' employee
compensation programs.

Given the size and complexity of their businesses, the Debtors
expect that it will take months to complete their key restructuring
initiatives, which are gating items to designing and negotiating a
viable chapter 11 plan. The Debtors also will need time to address
other contingencies and work with their numerous stakeholders in an
effort to build the support necessary for confirmation of a chapter
11 plan.

VAUGHN ENVIRONMENTAL: Unsecureds to Recoup 10.21% under Plan
------------------------------------------------------------
Vaughn Environmental Services, Inc., filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania a Disclosure
Statement in support of the Plan of Reorganization dated July 11,
2016.

Under the Plan, general unsecured creditors are not entitled to
priority and are projected to receive a 10.21% distribution.
Payments under the Plan will occur on at least an annual basis, as
funds permit, upon the Debtor remitting monthly payments to the
plan disbursement agent in the amount of $550 per month for a
period of 72 months.

As of the commencement of the case, the Debtor's records reflect
that unsecured claims entitled to priority (priority wage claims)
totaled $0, with $0 due and owing (priority tax obligations).  The
Debtor owed no priority wage claims as all the claims were paid
prior to the filing of the voluntary petition for relief.  The
books and records of the Debtor, evidenced that no amounts were due
and owing to numerous taxing bodies.  However, the Internal Revenue
Service file a Proof of Claim asserting pre-petition taxes were due
and owing.

The unsecured claims which are not entitled to priority against the
Debtor are itemized on Schedule F, which is of record.  The total
scheduled amount of all the claims was $247,838.49.  This amount
includes any claims the Debtor avers are not secured and any claims
bifurcated.  Upon the filing of the voluntary petition for relief,
various claims have been filed resulting in an increase in the
amount of unsecured claims, not entitled to priority, including
undersecured claims resulting in a total amount of $381,867.88.

The Debtor is proposing to fund its distribution to creditors,
administrative, priority and general unsecured creditors from
ongoing operations in addition to any recovery made from both
bankruptcy and non-bankruptcy related litigation.  The sources of
Plan funding are:

     a. continued operations with the Debtor remitting a monthly
        payment of $550 per month to the Plan Disbursement
        Fund/Agent for a period of 72 months;

     b. potential litigation versus On Deck Capital related to
        post-petition deduction of payments and Holtz Industries
        related to repairs/modification made to various vehicles.
        The Debtor is currently reviewing claims to determine the
        likelihood of success and chance of recovery.

VISUALANT INC: Posts $1.72 Million Net Income for Third Quarter
---------------------------------------------------------------
Visualant, Incorporated, filed with the Securities and Exchange
Commission its quarterly report on Form 10-Q disclosing net income
of $1.72 million on $1.83 million of revenue for the three months
ended June 30, 2016, compared to net income of $767,000 on $1.54
million of revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2015.

For the nine months ended June 30, 2016, the Company reported a net
loss of $595,322 on $4.58 million of revenue compared to a net loss
of $147,779 on $4.82 million of revenue for the nine months ended
June 30, 2015.

As of June 30, 2016, Visualant had $3.05 million in total assets,
$7.22 million in total liabilities, all current, and a total
stockholders' deficit of $4.17 million.

The Company had cash of $276,000 and net working capital deficit of
approximately $4,785,000 (excluding the derivative liability-
warrants of $739,000 as of June 30, 2016.  The Company expects
losses to continue as it commercializes its ChromaID technology.
The Company's cash used in operations for the nine months ended
June 30, 2016, and the years ended Sept. 30, 2015, and 2014 was
$1,857,000, $240,000 and $1,379,000, respectively.  The Company
believes that its cash on hand will be sufficient to fund its
operations through July 30, 2016.

"The opinion of our independent registered public accounting firm
on our audited financial statements as of and for the year ended
September 30, 2015 contains an explanatory paragraph regarding
substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern.
Our ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon
raising capital from financing transactions."

"We need additional financing to implement our business plan and to
service our ongoing operations and pay our current debts.  There
can be no assurance that we will be able to secure any needed
funding, or that if such funding is available, the terms or
conditions would be acceptable to us.  If we are unable to obtain
additional financing when it is needed, we will need to restructure
our operations, and divest all or a portion of our business.  We
may seek additional capital through a combination of private and
public equity offerings, debt financings and strategic
collaborations.  Debt financing, if obtained, may involve
agreements that include covenants limiting or restricting our
ability to take specific actions, such as incurring additional
debt, and could increase our expenses and require that our assets
secure such debt.  Equity financing, if obtained, could result in
dilution to our then-existing stockholders and/or require such
stockholders to waive certain rights and preferences.  If such
financing is not available on satisfactory terms, or is not
available at all, we may be required to delay, scale back or
eliminate the development of business opportunities and our
operations and financial condition may be materially adversely
affected."

RATINGS RATIONALE

Moody's said, "Whiting B3 CFR reflects our expectation of weak cash
flow-based leverage metrics in 2016 and particularly in 2017, when
the company's hedges roll off, even with the benefit of the
company's debt reduction. We project Whiting will generate retained
cash flow/debt of about 14% in 2016 and 13% in 2017. With Whiting
facing structurally low oil prices through 2017, further debt
reduction is needed in order to have adequate asset coverage of
debt. Whiting's B3 CFR is supported by the company's reserves and
production scale, a deep drilling inventory, and a track record of
organically growing its oil-weighted production, which positively
differentiates Whiting from its B3 rated exploration and production
peers and positions the company for growth in a more supportive
commodity price environment. The company has a history of taking
steps to support its credit metrics through commodity price cycles,
including reduced capital spending levels, asset sales, and equity
issuance. Whiting is facing production declines through 2016 as a
result of substantially curtailed capital spending levels, with the
company targeting cash flow neutrality."

Thus far in 2016, Whiting has reduced balance sheet debt by about
$810 million by mandatorily converting outstanding convertible
notes into shares of Whiting common stock. In addition, Whiting
intends to reduce revolver drawings with net proceeds from the $300
million sale of its CO2 tertiary recovery project in the North Ward
Estes Field in Texas. Together, these transactions moderately
improve Whiting's financial leverage (reducing total adjusted debt
by about 19%) and generate annual interest cost savings of around
$46 million. The company is targeting further debt reduction of
$731 million through the additional conversion of convertible notes
into common stock, but additional conversions into common stock are
subject to Whiting's stock price achieving a minimum price, which
is above Whiting's current market price) for a certain number of
trading days. Whiting also continues to target additional debt
reduction through the sale of its midstream assets.

Moody's said,  "We positively view Whiting's focus on debt
reduction and liquidity given a period of weak commodity prices.
The debt reduction, along with modestly higher oil price estimates,
will result in an improvement in our estimated cash flow and credit
metrics for Whiting, with 2016 EBITDA to interest improving to 3.6x
from 2.5x and retained cash flow to debt increasing to 14% from 8%.
Moreover, the conversion of debt to equity protects the company's
liquidity profile. And the sale of its North Ward Estes Field only
modestly impacts production, accounting for only 6% of its total
production profile as of June 2016; however, Whiting is losing a
stable, shallow decline, source of production. Nevertheless,
Whiting continues to have high financial leverage, with Moody's
estimating that Whiting's asset coverage (based on the pre-tax
PV-10 value relative to Whiting's adjusted debt) to still be under
1.0x.

"Whiting's SGL-2 rating reflects good liquidity, with a large
secured revolving credit facility and the expectation of limited
negative free cash flow through 2017. Whiting has a $2.5 billion
revolving credit facility maturing in December 2019, with a
borrowing base of $2.75 billion as of May 2016 (the borrowing base
is expected to decline to $2.6 billion with the North Ward Estes
sale). As of March 31, 2016, Whiting had $1 billion drawn under the
revolver and $2 million in letters of credit outstanding. The
company is subject to the risk of negative borrowing base
redeterminations, with semi-annual redeterminations in May and
November of each year. The credit facility is secured by
substantially all of Whiting's oil and gas properties, but not its
midstream assets. We expect Whiting to remain in compliance with
its financial covenants through 2017. Whiting's next long-term debt
maturity is 2018 when $294 million of notes comes due. "

Whiting's capital structure is comprised of a first lien secured
revolving credit facility (unrated), unsecured notes and
subordinated debt. The Caa1 rating on Whiting's senior unsecured
notes is one notch below its B3 CFR, reflecting the contractual
subordination of these notes to Whiting's secured revolving credit
facility. Whiting's subordinated notes are rated two notches below
its CFR, at Caa2, reflecting their junior position to both
Whiting's credit facility and senior unsecured notes.

The rating outlook is stable, reflecting the company will maintain
at least adequate liquidity through 2017 and continue to focus on
reducing its debt burden.

Whiting's ratings could be upgraded if the company is able to
stabilize production at reasonable returns, maintain retained cash
flow/debt over 10%, and sufficiently reduce debt such that pre-tax
PV-10 to debt approaches 1.0x.

Whiting's ratings could be downgraded if EBITDA/interest falls
below 2x, retained cash flow/debt is sustained below 5%, or
liquidity deteriorates.

Whiting Petroleum Corporation is an independent exploration and
production company headquartered in Denver, Colorado.


WISPER II: Needs Additional 90 Days to Solicit Plan Acceptances
---------------------------------------------------------------

Debtor's plan.  The Debtor also believes it may be necessary to
extend the confirmation process beyond the 60-day period for any
claim objections would have an impact on confirmation of its plan

WPCS INTERNATIONAL: Believes it Satisfies Nasdaq Listing Rule
-------------------------------------------------------------
As previously disclosed, on June 16, 2016, WPCS International
Incorporated entered into a settlement agreement and mutual release
to resolve disputes regarding the construction of the Cooper
Medical School at Rowan University, located in Camden, New Jersey,
in which the Company served as an electrical prime contractor.  As
set forth in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the
fiscal year ended April 30, 2016, the Company received $1,150,000
in the settlement from all existing lawsuits and all claims among
the parties were released.

Had the Company received the $1,150,000 in cash proceeds from the
Settlement on or before April 30, 2016, the Company believes it
would have reported stockholders' equity of $3,375,304 as of and
for the fiscal year ended April 30, 2016, which amount exceeds the
minimum $2,500,000 stockholders' equity threshold for continued
listing on The Nasdaq Capital Market, as set forth in Nasdaq
Listing Rule 5550(b).  For purposes of evidencing the Company's
current compliance with the Rule, the Company has filed a Current
Report on Form 8-K to indicate its belief that the Company
satisfies the Rule as of the date of July 28, 2016.

WPCS INTERNATIONAL: Incurs $8.3 Million Net Loss in Fiscal 2016
---------------------------------------------------------------
WPCS International Incorporated filed with the Securities and
Exchange Commission its annual report on Form 10-K disclosing
a net loss attributable to common shareholders of $8.27 million on
$14.6 million of revenue for the year ended April 30, 2016,
compared to a net loss attributable to common shareholders of
$11.32 million on $24.41 million of revenue for the year ended
April 30, 2015.

As of April 30, 2016, the Company had $5.80 million in total
assets, $3.57 million in total liabilities and $2.22 million in
total equity.

As of April 30, 2016, The Company had a working capital surplus of
approximately $2,061,000.  This compares to a working capital
deficit of approximately $1,246,000 at April 30, 2015.

The Company's cash and cash equivalents balance at April 30, 2016,
was $2,236,000 as compared to $2,364,000 at April 30, 2015.

"The Company's future plans and growth are dependent on its ability
to increase revenues and continue its business development efforts
surrounding its contract award backlog.  If the Company continues
to incur losses and revenues do not generate from the backlog as
expected, the Company may need to raise additional capital to
expand its business and continue as a going concern. The Company
currently anticipates that its current cash position, along with
the receipt of $1,150,000 associated with the Cooper Union
settlement..., will be sufficient to meet its working capital
requirements to continue its sales and marketing efforts for at
least 12 months from the filing date of this report. If in the
future our plans or assumptions change or prove to be inaccurate,
the Company may need to raise additional funds through public or
private debt or equity offerings, financings, corporate
collaborations, or other means.  The Company may also be required
to reduce operating expenditures or investments in its
infrastructure."

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.
