500 NORTH AVENUE: Court Allows Cash Collateral Use Until Jan. 31
----------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Ann M. Nevins of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District
of Connecticut authorized 500 North Avenue, LLC to use the cash
collateral of Manual Moutinho, Trustee for Mark IV Construction Co
Inc. 401(k) Savings Plan, on an interim basis, from November 1,
2016 through January 31, 2017.

Mr. Moutinho alleges a first and second priority secured claim
against certain real property owned by the Debtor located at
1794-1796 Barnum Avenue, Bridgeport, Connecticut, including the
rents arising therefrom.

Judge Nevins acknowledged that the use of cash collateral on an
interim basis pending a final hearing is necessary to prevent
immediate and irreparable harm to the Debtor's estate in that
without authorization to use cash collateral, the Debtor's ability
to sustain its operations and meet its necessary and integral
business obligations will be impossible.

The approved Budget covers the months of November 2016 and December
2016.  The Budget provides for total expenses in the amount of
$22,916.

Mr. Moutinho was granted replacement and/or substitute liens in
post-petition collateral, which will have the same validity,
extent, and priority that Mr. Mountinho possessed as to the same
liens on the Petition Date.

A further hearing on the Debtor's use of cash collateral is
scheduled for January 25, 2017 at 11:00 a.m.

ATINUM MIDCON: Sandridge Energy Defends Bid for Drilling Portfolio
------------------------------------------------------------------
Katy Stech, writing for The Wall Street Journal Pro Bankruptcy,
reported that SandRidge Energy Inc. defended its move to purchase
Atinum Midcon I LLC's oil and gas drilling investments out of
bankruptcy, urging a federal judge to disregard protest from Wells
Fargo Bank N.A. officials who said the bank's proposal to forgive
$75 million is a better offer.

According to the report, in court papers, SandRidge lawyers said
the offer from Wells Fargo, which handles Atinum's loan of more
than $265 million, wasn't valid because it covered only a subset of
Atinum's roughly 1,600 oil and gas wells in northern Oklahoma and
southern Kansas.

Under its offer, Wells Fargo offered to forgive $75 million in debt
owed by Atinum, a Houston energy investor, the report related.
SandRidge's bid is valued about $67 million, made up of $47 million
in cash and about $19 million in forgiven debt, the report further
related.

Wells Fargo officials earlier argued that lawyers who put Atinum
into bankruptcy in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Houston on July 22
wrongly declared SandRidge's offer as superior, the report said.

They argued in court filings that Atinum officials were motivated
to placate SandRidge and sell the company's portfolio quickly for
insurance reasons: Equity owners could get roughly $240 million on
account of their lost investment if the case is converted to
chapter 7 before the end of 2016, the report added.

                       About Atinum MidCon I

Headquartered in Houston, Texas, Atinum MidCon I, LLC, owns
non-operated working interests in oil and gas wells and properties

The Debtor filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection (Bankr. S.D.
Tex. Case No. 16-33645) on July 22, 2016, estimating its assets

$100
million and $500 million.  The petition was signed by Robert E.
Ogle, chief restructuring officer.

ATLANTIC CITY MUA: S&P Puts B- Bonds Rating on CreditWatch Dev.
---------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings has placed its 'B-' rating on Atlantic City
Municipal Utilities Authority (ACMUA), N.J.'s water system revenue
bonds on CreditWatch with developing implications.

The 'B-' rating primarily reflects S&P's opinion that ACMUA's
ability to support its financial obligations could be severely
weakened depending on the structure and security on water revenue
bonds recently authorized by ACMUA for the purchase of Bader Field,
a city-owned airport, from Atlantic City.

"The CreditWatch Developing status is due to uncertainty regarding
how additional debt will be structured," said S&P Global Ratings
credit analyst Scott Garrigan It is unclear from publically
available documents what the security on the bonds is likely to be,
except for the fact that the ACMUA's bond resolution passed on Oct.
19, 2016, authorizes series 2017 water system revenue bonds to
"acquire from the City of Atlantic City all or portions of Bader
Field."

Another source of uncertainty regarding creditworthiness is S&P's
view that it appears these water system bonds are being issued for
a non-core purpose, which could greatly change operating risk.
According to the ACMUA's website, the goal of ACMUA is to "produce
the highest quality drinking water for all its customers."  The
city's recently released recovery plan indicates that it has slated
Bader Field for general redevelopment and recreational uses.

As S&P receives additional information on the security and
structure of the authorized bonds and the Bader Field purchase, our
view of the rating could become either more negative or positive
depending on the specific circumstances.

The authority is the sole provider of potable water within the
city's service area except for a limited number of users who obtain
their water from privately owned wells.

Net revenues of the authority's water system secure the bonds.

BERNARD L. MADOFF: Chais Deal Brings Recoveries to $11.4 Billion
----------------------------------------------------------------
Irving H. Picard, Securities Investor Protection Act (SIPA) Trustee
for the liquidation of Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities LLC
(BLMIS), on Oct. 28, 2016, filed a motion in the United States
Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York seeking the
Court's approval of a global settlement with the defendants in
Picard v. the Estate of Stanley Chais, et al.  The motion also
seeks Court approval for the creation of a California Restitution
Fund, which is the result of the efforts of California Attorney
General Kamala D. Harris, and the settlement of private California
state court litigation against the Chais-related Defendants.

The settlement agreement will ultimately deliver a benefit of more
than $277 million to the victims of the Madoff Ponzi scheme.  The
agreement was made with the Stanley Chais estate, Chais's widow,
and a number of Chais family members, investment funds, trusts,
companies, and other entities associated with Chais.  The approval
hearing for this agreement has been set for Nov. 22, 2016 at 10:00
a.m.

Under the terms of the agreement, as soon as a final, unappealable
order is entered by the Court, the BLMIS Customer Fund will receive
a payment of at least $232 million in cash, as well as the
assignment of other non-liquid assets which will be liquidated over
time and which are valued at approximately $30.7 million.

Also under the agreement, a California State Restitution Fund that
will total approximately $15 million will be established, to be
supervised by the California Attorney General's office, for the
administration and payment of claims made by investors in certain
Chais-related partnerships related to the state.

"This outstanding outcome is the result of four years of
negotiation and mediation which addressed and resolved myriad
complex legal issues and underscores the tenacity of the teams who
continue to deliver additional recoveries for Madoff's victims,"
said Tracy Cole, a BakerHostetler partner and lead counsel on the
Chais matter. "The agreement confers a significant, immediate
benefit to the BLMIS Customer Fund, avoids lengthy, burdensome, and
expensive litigation, and represents a fair and reasonable
compromise between the SIPA Trustee and the defendants."

"The agreement . . . brings total recoveries to date to more than
$11.4 billion," said Stephen P. Harbeck, President and Chief
Executive Officer of SIPC.  "The work of the SIPA Trustee and his
team continues to drive results toward our shared goal of
maximizing the return of stolen funds to eligible victims as
quickly as possible."

"These milestones are a reminder of the importance of SIPC's
support in liquidations such as BLMIS," Mr. Picard added.  "All
administrative costs of the Madoff Recovery Initiative are funded
by SIPC, meaning that 100 percent of recoveries are returned to the
legitimate owners.  None of the costs to right the wrongs done by
Madoff are borne by his victims."

As of Oct. 28, the SIPA Trustee has distributed approximately
$9.467 billion, which includes more than $836.6 million in
committed advances from SIPC.  Once the agreement is approved by
the Bankruptcy Court and a final unappealable order entered, the
total BLMIS Customer Fund recoveries and agreements to recover will
then total approximately $11.459 billion, or more than 65 percent
of the principal estimated to have been lost by Madoff's defrauded
customers with allowed claims and those claims that are deemed
determined pending the outcome of litigation or future
settlements.

The SIPA Trustee's motion can be found on the United States
Bankruptcy Court's website at http://www.nysb.uscourts.gov/;Bankr.
S.D.N.Y., No. 08-01789 (SMB) / Adv. Pro. No. 09-01182 (SMB). In
addition, the motion – as well as further information on
recoveries to date, other legal proceedings, further settlements,
and general information – can be found on the SIPA Trustee's Web

In addition to Ms. Cole, Messrs. Harbeck and Picard, and David J.
Sheehan, Chief Counsel to the SIPA Trustee, would like to thank the
Securities Investor Protection Corporation's Josephine Wang and
Kevin Bell, as well as BakerHostetler attorneys Thomas L. Long, M.
Elizabeth Howe and Lauren P. Berglin, who assisted with the work on
the global settlement agreement.

BERNARD L. MADOFF: S. Chais Estate to Return $277M to Investors
---------------------------------------------------------------
Jacqueline Palank, writing for The Wall Street Journal Pro
Bankruptcy, reported that the estate of California money manager
Stanley Chais, who steered numerous investors to Bernard Madoff,
will return some $277 million to those investors under a newly
reached settlement with Irving Picard, the trustee for Mr. Madoff's
investment firm.

According to the report, the settlement will resolve the lawsuit
that Mr. Picard filed seven years ago against the late Mr. Chais,
wife Pamela and other family members for the return of more than $1
billion he said represented false profits from Mr. Madoff's fraud.

The settlement calls for $262 million, from Mr. Chais's estate as
well as "substantially all" of Mrs. Chais's assets, to be paid into
the pot of funds Mr. Picard has gathered in the liquidation to
repay Mr. Madoff's cheated investors, the report related.

The settlement calls for another $15 million to be paid into a
restitution fund for California investors to resolve separate
litigation brought by the California attorney general's office,
which called Mr. Chais a "Madoff middleman," the report further
related.

Of the $262 million that will be paid to Mr. Madoff's investors in
the liquidation proceeding, at least $232 million will be in cash.
The remaining value is expected to come from Chais assets that will
be sold over time, the report further related.

When the latest settlement is approved by the court, it will mean
Mr. Picard has recovered more than $11 billion of stolen funds, the
report said.  Much of that has already been returned to Mr.
Madoff's investors, the report added.

The U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Manhattan will hold a hearing on Nov.
22, 2016 to review the settlement.

CARDTRONICS INC: Moody's Confirms Ba2 CFR; Outlook Stable
---------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service confirmed Cardtronics, Inc.'s credit
ratings including the company's Ba2 Corporate Family Rating, Ba2-PD
Probability of Default Rating, and the Ba3 rating on Cardtronics'
$250 million senior unsecured notes.  The rating action concludes
Moody's review of the company's ratings for downgrade initiated on
October 4, 2016 following the announcement of Cardtronics' plans to
purchase DirectCash Payments Inc.  Moody's also affirmed
Cardtronics' SGL-2 speculative grade liquidity rating.  The ratings
outlook at stable.

                         RATINGS RATIONALE

Cardtronics will have elevated pro forma leverage of approximately
3x immediately following the completion of the pending DirectCash
acquisition.  The confirmation of the Ba2 CFR reflects Moody's
expectation that the company will utilize free cash flow to
gradually repay a meaningful portion of borrowings related to this
purchase in the coming year such that financial leverage improves
to about 2.5x.  The Ba2 CFR also reflects the company's inherent
exposure to long term secular risks associated with potentially
limited growth, and possible contraction, in cash-based
transactions.  The CFR additionally considers uncertainties
relating to the pending loss of Cardtronics' largest customer in
July 2017, interest rate exposure, and the company's ability to
maintain surcharge and interchange rates.  However, the rating is
supported by Cardtronics' established market position as the
world's largest retail ATM owner, a track record of strong business
expansion in recent years, and predictable operating cash flow
derived from transaction-based revenues.  The company's growing
scale and investments in infrastructure provide operating leverage
that should largely mitigate the impact of competitive challenges,
potential declines in interchange rates, or lower than expected
surcharge rates.

Cardtronics' SGL-2 speculative grade liquidity rating is presently
supported by an unrestricted cash balance of $59.5 million as of
September 30, 2016 as well as Moody's expectation that the company
will generate solid free cash flow over the next 12 months with no
meaningful debt maturing over this time frame.  Additionally, the
company's liquidity is bolstered by an undrawn $375 million
revolving credit facility due in 2021.  Moody's expects Cardtronics
to maintain good liquidity following the completion of the
DirectCash acquisition early in 2017, although this view is subject
to change depending on the company's final debt structure upon
closing.

The stable outlook reflects Moody's expectations that Cardtronics'
revenues will decline moderately in 2017 due to the pending loss of
the company's largest customer in July 2017.  Pro forma total debt
to EBITDA is expected to decline modestly towards the mid-2x level
during this period as Cardtronics' utilizes free cash flow to
gradually repay borrowings associated with the DirectCash
purchase.

Factors that Could Lead to an Upgrade

The rating could be upgraded if Cardtronics demonstrates consistent
growth in free cash flow driven by organic revenue expansion and is
able to sustain debt to EBITDA leverage below 2x (Moody's
adjusted).

Factors that Could Lead to a Downgrade

The rating could be downgraded if Cardtronics' is unable to
maintain total debt to EBITDA (Moody's adjusted) below 3x and free
cash flow weakens to below the mid-teens percentage of total debt
for a protracted time period.  Additionally, Cardtronics' ratings
could be downgraded if the company's sales are materially impacted
by a decline in ATM transactions or increased usage of
non-cash/electronic payment methods or technologies.

Affirmations:

Issuer: Cardtronics, Inc.
  Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating, Affirmed SGL-2

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Business and
Consumer Service Industry published in October 2016.

Cardtronics, a subsidiary of Cardtronics plc, provides consumer
financial services through its network of automated teller machines
("ATMs") and multi-function financial services kiosks. Cardtronics'
customers primarily include large and small retailers, operators of
facilities such as shopping malls and airports, and financial
institutions.  Excluding the impact of pending acquisitions, we
expect Cardtronics' to generate $1.25 billion in sales in 2016.


CENTURYLINK INC: Moody's Puts Ba2 CFR on Review for Downgrade
-------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has placed CenturyLink, Inc.'s ratings
under review for downgrade, including the company's Ba2 corporate
family rating, Ba2-PD Probability of Default Rating, the Ba3 senior
unsecured rating, and all subsidiary debt ratings.  The review is
prompted by CenturyLink's agreement to purchase Level 3
Communications, Inc. for $24.3 billion with a mix of 40% cash and
60% equity.  Moody's expects CenturyLink's leverage (Moody's
adjusted) to increase from 3.4x as of June 30, 2016, to 4.4x at
FYE2018 as a result of the transaction.  CenturyLink's SGL-3
speculative grade liquidity rating is not affected at this time.
The transaction is expected to close by the end of third quarter of
2017 and is subject to approval by CenturyLink and Level 3
shareholders and regulatory approvals.

                         RATINGS RATIONALE

CenturyLink has agreed to acquire Level 3 in a cash and stock
transaction for approximately $24.3 billion plus the assumption of
$10.8 billion of Level 3 debt.  Level 3 shareholders will receive
consideration of $66.50 per share consisting of $26.50 per share in
cash and $40.00 per share in stock.  CenturyLink intends to fund
the cash portion of the transaction with $10.2 billion of senior
secured debt issued by CenturyLink, Inc, including an undrawn $2
billion senior secured revolver.  The secured debt will benefit
from guarantees from several material non-regulated CenturyLink
subsidiaries (including Embarq parent) and a new Level 3 holding
company.

Moody's review will focus on the post-close combined company's
leverage and cash flows, as well as its growth potential.  Based on
the current proposed transaction structure, Moody's expects any
downgrade of CenturyLink's corporate family rating to be limited to
one notch.  Ratings of some of the debt classes within the
CenturyLink structure could fall by two notches due to changes in
the amount and seniority of debt and additional guarantees in the
proposed capital structure.

CenturyLink's corporate family rating would face pressure due to
the higher leverage from the debt incurred to finance the deal,
which would be partially offset by the additional scale and growth
potential from the acquisition of Level 3.  If the transaction
closes as proposed, Moody's expects CenturyLink's leverage (Moody's
adjusted) to remain above 4x for several years due to modest
growth, margin pressure, high dividends and high capital intensity.
Pro-forma for the transaction, Moody's projects leverage to
increase from around 3.5x at year end 2016 to 4.4x for FYE2018,
with potential to fall to 4.2x by FYE2019 with EBITDA growth and
debt repayment.  Moody's is likely to consider the positive aspects
of the transaction when contemplating the appropriate credit
metrics for CenturyLink, which could translate into slightly higher
leverage tolerance than the prior stand-alone credit.  Moody's has
identified leverage of 3.8x as the limit for CenturyLink's Ba2
corporate family rating prior to its planned acquisition of Level
3.

The combination of CenturyLink and Level 3 would create the second
largest provider of telecom services to the enterprise segment
behind only AT&T.  CenturyLink's business mix will have an
increased focus on the enterprise segment which will represent 75%
of pro forma revenues.  Level 3 and CenturyLink have complementary
local fiber assets and Level 3's advanced services portfolio will
be an asset for CenturyLink.  The company estimates it can realize
$975 million in run-rate cash synergies, with 80% within 36 months
of closing.  Moody's believes this is achievable due to both
companies' track records of integrating large-scale acquisitions
and meeting, or exceeding, targeted synergies.

The transaction will enable CenturyLink to utilize $9.6 billion of
Net Operating Losses from Level 3, which will offset a portion of
the pro forma consolidated company's taxable income for several
years.  However, to finance the transaction CenturyLink will issue
approximately 521,000 new shares and nearly double its annual cash
dividend from $1.2 billion in FYE2015 to $2.3 billion.  The tax
assets are a key benefit of the transaction, but this benefit will
accrue to shareholders while bondholders will suffer higher
leverage and, for some layers of the capital structure, significant
additional subordination.

Like many of its peers, CenturyLink's appetite for financial risk
has steadily increased over the past few years.  This transaction
is strategically positive, but the benefits are skewed to
shareholders while creditors are exposed to higher financial risk.
Moody's believes that CenturyLink has no flexibility to alter its
capital allocation stance unless it can return to growth, as the
company's generous dividend underpins its equity value.  Over the
past 5 years, CenturyLink has gradually sacrificed its credit
strength to sustain its dividend.  Although CenturyLink has
sustained strong capital investment levels, which are positive to
its long term competitive position, it has used leverage liberally
to finance its many demands on cash.  This track record and
financial policy results in limited upward ratings potential over
the near term.

Structural Considerations

CenturyLink has substantial subsidiary debt in addition to
substantial debt at the parent level, CenturyLink Inc.  All of
CenturyLink's parent and subsidiary debt, except for a small amount
of debt at Embarq Opcos, would be subject to at least one notch
downgrade due to the potential corresponding one notch downgrade of
the corporate family rating.  The ratings of unsecured debt at
CenturyLink Inc. and Embarq Corp. could be downgraded by up to two
notches due to the additional subordination incurred by the new
guaranteed debt issued to finance the transaction.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Global
Telecommunications Industry published in December 2010.


CENTURYLINK INC: S&P Affirms 'BB' CCR; Outlook Stable
-----------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said it affirmed its 'BB' long-term corporate
credit rating and 'B' short-term corporate credit rating on Monroe,
La.-based CenturyLink Inc.  The outlook is stable.

CenturyLink plans to finance the $24 billion purchase price with
60% equity and 40% cash and new debt.  S&P expects the company will
issue about $7 billion of new secured debt at the parent company
and will use proceeds from the sale of its data center business to
fund the cash portion.  It will also issue another $1.2 billion of
secured debt to refinance upcoming maturities and will put in place
a $2 billion senior secured revolving credit facility.

At the same time, S&P placed its rating on CenturyLink's senior
unsecured debt on CreditWatch with negative implications and S&P's
rating on wholly-owned subsidiary Embarq Corp.'s senior unsecured
debt on CreditWatch with positive implications.

"The rating affirmation is based on our favorable view of the
combined business, which is offset by the high pro forma leverage
of about 4.4x (S&P Global-adjusted) based on the purchase price,"
said S&P Global Ratings credit analyst Allyn Arden.

Key business benefits include increased economies of scale from the
combined business, a larger domestic and global reach to better
service enterprise customers, and the enhancement of CenturyLink's
product portfolio to better serve the enterprise market.
Additionally, the combination of Level 3's dense metro and
long-haul fiber assets and CenturyLink's local market facilities
should offer meaningful operating synergies and improved coverage.
S&P's more favorable business risk assessment also incorporates the
increased mix of business customers to 75% of total revenue from
62% and reduced exposure to the highly competitive residential
market because Level 3's base of business is almost entirely
commercial customers.  S&P believes that large enterprise customers
are less likely to churn than consumers or small business clients.
Moreover, S&P believes the purchase of Level 3 will alleviate
potential regulatory risk at CenturyLink associated with the FCC's
proposed special access reform, which could result in lower revenue
from the sale of business data service lines to customers, since
Level 3 is a competitive telecom provider and a net buyer of
special access circuits.

The stable outlook reflects S&P's expectation for relatively
limited integration risk despite elevated leverage near term.  S&P
expects CenturyLink's revenue on a standalone basis to decline in
the low-single-digit percent area in 2016 due to ongoing
residential access line losses and lower revenue in the SMB market,
which is nearly offset by growth from strategic services, including
the company's fiber-based Prism TV service and high bandwidth based
services for larger enterprise customers.

CHENG & COMPANY: MR 619's Bid for Summary Judgment Partly Granted
-----------------------------------------------------------------
In the case captioned In re CHENG & COMPANY L.L.C., Chapter 11,
Debtor, Case No. 15-00014 (Bankr. D.C.),

Judge S. Martin Teel, Jr. of the United States Bankruptcy Court for
the District of Columbia granted in part and denied, in part, the
motion filed by MR 619 H Street Capital LLC for summary judgment on
Cheng & Company L.L.C.'s amended objection to MR 619's claim.

The issues involve a Purchase and Sale Agreement that addressed two
sets of properties, one known as the H Street Property (owned by
Cheng & Company) and the other known as the Eye Street Property
(owned by affiliates of Cheng & Company, the "Eye Street Seller,"
to whose rights Cheng & Company has succeeded).

Cheng & Company filed its Chapter 11 case on January 13, 2015.  On
April 14, 2015, MR 619 filed its proof of claim setting forth a
secured claim in the amount of $1,378,245.22 for "Money Loaned
under Note and Deed of Trust."  On May 12, 2015, Cheng & Company
filed its objection to MR 619's claim.  The basis of the objection
to the claim was an Amended Complaint filed by Cheng & Company and
the Eye Street seller against MR 619 and the Eye Street purchaser
in the Superior Court of the District of Columbia.  On June 8,
2015, MR 619 filed a response to the objection to the claim with a
copy of the agreement and all exhibits and amendments thereto
attached as Exhibit 1.  

On February 16, 2016, the court held a hearing to address the
Motion.  Judge Teel concluded that MR 619 is entitled to a grant of
summary judgment in its favor on the question of whether Cheng &
Company breached the terms of the agreement.  The judge further
stated that MR 619 is also entitled to a grant of summary judgment
in its favor on the question of whether a right to repayment arose
in its favor when it invoked its right to terminate its obligations
under the agreement.

Judge Teel, however, held that MR 619 is not entitled to a grant of
summary judgment disposing of the entirety of Cheng & Company's
objection to the claim, because Cheng & Company has asserted a
right of setoff predicated on several tort claims and alter ego
claims with respect to some of which there remain genuine issues of
material fact that must be resolved.  Specifically, the judge
pointed out that Cheng & Company has raised genuine issues of
material fact with respect to whether MR 619 can be held liable for
the alleged breach of the agreement by the Eye Street purchaser and
for wrongfully conspiring with the Eye Street purchaser and its
affiliates to deprive Cheng & Company of its rights under the
agreement.

COMMUNITY HEALTH: S&P Affirms 'B' CCR & Revises Outlook to Neg.
---------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings affirmed its 'B' corporate credit rating on
Franklin, Tenn.-based acute-care hospital operator Community Health
Systems Inc. and revised the rating outlook to negative from
stable.  S&P's issue-level ratings on Community Health are
unchanged.

"Our rating action follows Community's preannouncement of very weak
third-quarter operating results, characterized by declining margins
and weakening adjusted admissions trends, even when compared to a
disappointing prior year third quarter," said S&P Global Ratings
credit analyst Shannan Murphy.  Moreover, the company has recently
announced that it is reviewing strategic alternatives, and is
speaking to a number of parties, including financial sponsors, who
may be interested in purchasing all or a portion of the company's
assets.  While S&P continues to believe that the company can
address some of its capital structure issues through cost cutting
and planned and pending asset sales, S&P believes that there is a
meaningful risk that the company is unable to execute on these
plans.

While many peer acute-care hospital operators reported soft
same-facility adjusted admissions in the third quarter, Community's
1.5% decrease in same-facility adjusted admissions was weaker than
expected, especially when compared to a poor prior year comparison.
In addition to declining volumes, the company was unable to
achieve targeted cost reductions in the quarter, which contributed
to significant margin erosion, with margins down about 170 basis
points on a sequential basis, off weak second-quarter levels.

S&P's negative rating outlook on Community reflects S&P's view that
credit risk has escalated over the past few months, reflecting both
Community's operating issues and its strategic review process.
Based on recent trends, S&P believes that Community is likely to
generate only marginally positive free cash flow over the next
several quarters, and debt leverage is likely to be sustained near
7x.  However, S&P recognizes that the company plans to address at
least some of its capital structure issues through cost
restructuring and planned and pending asset sales, though S&P now
sees execution risk associated with this strategy as higher given
recent operating performance.

S&P could lower the rating if Community is unable to stabilize its
operations and generate at least $100 million to $200 million in
positive recurring cash flow.  S&P could also lower the rating if
S&P believes the company will be unable to address its covenant
issues (either through improving its operating performance or
getting an amendment) such that it can continue to access its
revolver, given working capital swings inherent in the business.

If S&P become more confident that the company can stabilize its
operations and generate modest positive recurring free cash flow,
S&P could revise the outlook back to stable.  In S&P's view, this
would require the company to stabilize EBITDA margins at around
12.5%-13% on an unadjusted basis (just below the level in 2015).


COMPASSION IN HEALTHCARE: U.S. Trustee Unable to Appoint Committee

as of October 31, according to a court docket.

CONSTELLATION BRANDS: Moody's Assigns B2 CFR; Outlook Stable
------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned ratings to Constellation Brands
Canada Inc. (CBC), consisting of a B2 corporate family rating
(CFR), B2-PD probability of default rating, and Ba3 ratings to its
proposed first lien credit facilities (C$40 million revolver,
US$260 million term loan, and C$66 million term loan).  The ratings
outlook is stable.  This is the first time Moody's has assigned
ratings to CBC.

Net proceeds from new US$260 million and C$66 million first lien
term loans and a new C$136 million second lien term loan million
(unrated), totaling about C$550 million, together with C$510
million in equity from CBC's financial sponsor, Ontario Teachers'
Pension Plan (OTPP), will be used to fund the C$1 billion
acquisition of the company from its prior parent, Constellation
Brands Inc. (Ba1 stable).  OTPP's contribution includes C$87.5
million by way of a shareholder loan, the structure of which
Moody's considers to be debt.  The new C$40 million revolver is
expected to be undrawn at close.

"Constellation Brands Canada's B2 CFR is driven by it strong market
position in the Canadian wine industry, coupled with its high
leverage", said Peter Adu, Moody's AVP.

Ratings Assigned
  Corporate Family Rating, B2
  Probability of Default Rating, B2-PD
  C$40 million revolving credit facility due 2021, Ba3 (LGD2)
  US$260 million first lien term loan due 2023, Ba3 (LGD2)
  C$66 million first lien term loan due 2023, Ba3 (LGD2)

Outlook:
  Assigned as Stable

                         RATINGS RATIONALE

CBC's B2 CFR primarily reflects high leverage (pro forma adjusted
Debt/EBITDA of 7.1x), exposure to foreign currency fluctuations,
and small scale relative to alcoholic beverage rated peers, offset
by its market leadership position in the Canadian wine industry, a
portfolio of well-known brands, substantial barriers to entry
driven by favorable regulation, and attractive industry growth
prospects.  The rating assumes leverage will trend below 7x in the
next two years as C$25 million per year of estimated free cash flow
is applied to reduce about C$700 million of adjusted debt, while
EBITDA remains flat around C$100 million as the company absorbs the
additional costs of operating as a standalone company.

CBC has good liquidity, supported by full availability under its
new C$40 million revolving credit facility due 2021 and expected
free cash flow of C$25 million through the next four quarters.
These sources are more than sufficient to fund annual term loan
amortizations of about C$4 million.  CBC will have no cash when the
transaction closes and will rely on the revolver for immediate cash
needs.  The company's revolver will be subject to a springing
maximum first lien net leverage covenant when drawings exceed 35%.
Moody's expects cushion to exceed 25% should the covenant be
applicable.  CBC has limited ability to generate liquidity from
asset sales as its assets are encumbered.

The stable ratings outlook presumes that CBC will maintain its
strong Canadian wine industry market position and will reduce its
high leverage through the use of free cash flow to reduce debt.

A ratings upgrade would require CBC to sustain Debt/EBITDA below 5x
(pro forma 7.1x) and EBIT/Interest above 2.5x (pro forma 1.7x). A
ratings downgrade could occur if Debt/EBITDA was sustained above 7x
and EBIT/Interest below 1x.  Weak liquidity, possibly from negative
free cash flow generation or engaging in debt-funded distributions
to its financial sponsor could also lead to a downgrade.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Global
Alcoholic Beverage Industry published in October 2013.

Constellation Brands Canada Inc. produces and distributes a
portfolio of wine brands mostly through provincial liquor boards,
its Wine Rack retail stores and grocery retailers.  Annual revenue
is close to C$600 million.  The company is headquartered in
Mississauga, Ontario.


COSI INC: Court Approves Nov. 28 Bid Deadline, Nov. 30 Auction
--------------------------------------------------------------
Cosi, Inc., the fast-casual restaurant company, on Nov. 1, 2016,
disclosed that, on Oct. 24, 2016, the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Massachusetts (Eastern Division) entered the Order
Establishing Bidding Procedures Relating to the Sale of All or a
Portion of the Debtors' Assets.  The Bidding Procedures set forth
the process by which Cosi and its subsidiaries are authorized to
conduct an auction for the sale of all or substantially all of
their assets under Section 363 of the Bankruptcy Code.

The Bidding Procedures are for the purposes of seeking and
evaluating offers for the assets, on the terms and provisions set
forth in such Bidding Procedures, in addition to the bid
contemplated by the proposed stalking horse bidder ("Stalking Horse
Bidder") affiliated with the Debtors' debtor-in-possession lenders,
as set forth in an asset purchase agreement dated as of October 18,
2016, among the Debtors and the Stalking Horse Bidder (the
"Stalking Horse Agreement"), which remains subject to approval of
the Bankruptcy Court.  Bids must comply with each of the
requirements set forth in the Bidding Procedures in order to be
considered qualified bids.  The Stalking Horse Bidder will be
deemed a qualified bidder.

To participate in the bidding process and to be considered a
qualified bidder, an interested party must deliver an executed
confidentiality agreement and demonstrate financial ability.
Qualified bids must be received on or before Nov. 28, 2016, at 5:00
p.m. Eastern Time, and must provide that the Sale will be
consummated on or prior to Dec. 14, 2016.

If the Debtors receive no qualified bids for the assets (other than
the bid of the Stalking Horse Bidder), the Debtors will not conduct
the auction and will designate the bid of the Stalking Horse Bidder
as the successful bid.  If the Debtors receive one or more
qualified bids, other than the bid of the Stalking Horse Bidder,
the Debtors will conduct the auction on Nov. 30, 2016, in
accordance with the Bidding Procedures until the Debtors have
selected the successful bid.  The Debtors may consider, among other
factors, the total consideration to be received for the assets as
well as other financial and contractual terms relevant to the
proposed sale, including those factors affecting the speed and
certainty of consummating the sale.

At a hearing to consider approval of the sale of the assets to the
successful bidder (or to approve the Stalking Horse Agreement, as
applicable, if no auction is held), to be held on or before Dec. 8,
2016, at 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time, before the Honorable Melvin S.
Hoffman, at the Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of
Massachusetts, Room 2, John W. McCormack Post Office and Court
House, 5 Post Office Square, Suite 1150, Boston, MA 02109-3945, the
Debtors will present the successful bid to the Court for approval.

If a successful bidder fails to consummate a sale because of its
breach after the entry of an Order of the Bankruptcy Court
approving such sale, the Debtors may consummate the sale with any
other qualified bidder without further Order of the Bankruptcy
Court.

Parties interested in the 363 sale process may contact Randy
Kominsky, Cosi's Chief Restructuring Officer, at

DELIVERY AGENT: Seeks to Pay To Execs Up to $3M in Bonuses
----------------------------------------------------------
Sarah Chaney, writing for The Wall Street Journal Pro Bankruptcy,
reported that Delivery Agent Inc., which helps entertainment and
sports operations sell products online, is seeking to pay top
executives up to $3 million in bonuses during its bankruptcy
proceedings.

According to the report, citing papers filed in bankruptcy court,
the e-commerce company outlined a plan to reward six executives,
including Chief Executive  Mike Fitzsimmons, with bonuses tied to
the success of its pending sale.

The report related that Delivery Agent said the bonuses will be
granted "only upon the successful closing of a sale or sales of
Delivery Agent's assets, and, therefore, are directly linked to
results."

At a minimum, executives, such as Chief Financial Officer Jeff
Hagan and President of E-Commerce Peter Lai, will be eligible for
bonuses if a winning bidder pays enough to satisfy Hillair's debts
plus an extra $2 million, the report further related.  If winning
bidders offer more than that, the bonus payments will increase, for
a maximum payout of $3 million, the report said.

The U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Wilmington, Del. is expected to review
the bonuses at a Nov. 17 hearing, the report noted.  Any objection
to the pay proposal plan must be filed with the court by Nov. 10,
the report added.

DIRECTBUY HOLDINGS: Files for Ch. 11 Bankruptcy to Pursue Sale
--------------------------------------------------------------
DirectBuy Holdings, Inc., along with its seven affiliates, has
filed a voluntary petition under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code,
estimating assets and liabilities in the range of $100 million to
$500 million.

The Chapter 11 cases (Bankr. D. Del. Case Nos. 16-12435 to
16-12442) were commenced on Nov. 1, 2016.  Judge Christopher S.
Sontchi has been assigned the cases.

The Debtors sought bankruptcy protection to restructure their
balance sheet through a going-concern sale of their business assets
pursuant to Section 363 of the Bankruptcy Code.  According to the
Debtors, their operations (while financially sound) are
insufficient to sustain existing levels of debt or attract a
sufficient amount of refinancing.

Beginning February of 2016, the Debtors, through their financial
advisor Carl Marks Advisory Group LLC, ran a marketing process,
facilitated due diligence and engaged in discussions with potential
buyers.  Despite these efforts, the Debtors did not receive any
formal bids from potential buyers.

The Debtors also engaged in discussions with their existing
stakeholders about a possible restructuring of their debt or credit
bid to purchase their assets resulting in their entry into a
purchase agreement.

On Nov. 1, 2016, the Debtors and Derby SPV, Inc., entered into the
Purchase Agreement pursuant to which Derby will acquire the
Debtors' business for $10 million, plus assumption of specified
liabilities, subject to higher or better bids at an auction.    The
Debtors propose that the deadline to submit bids be fixed at 5:00
p.m. on Jan. 5, 2017.

Headquartered in Merrillville, Indiana, the Debtors operate a
members-only buying club, offering savings, selection and service
to their 178,431 members in the United States and Canada.  The
Debtors provide their members with home furnishings that includes
free at-home design consultation, digital or over-the-phone project
support, seven days per week access to call center support, and
"white globe" delivery services.  As of the Petition Date, the
Debtors have approximately 403 employees.

DirectBuy Holdings is owned by Bayside DirectBuy, LLC (69.41%),
Pennant Park Investment Corporation (10.47%), Solar Capital, Ltd.
(7.70%) and various other entities.

As disclosed in the bankruptcy filing, the Debtors have
historically offered their members access to merchandise through
franchised locations.  However, as the companies' brick and mortar
model struggled during the last seven years, the Debtors
transitioned into the e-commerce platform.

The Debtors generate revenues from membership sales and renewals,
shipping and handling fees, advertising, and early payment
discounts from vendors.  For the fiscal years ended July 31, 2015,
and July 31, 2016, the Debtors generated $70.395 million and
$56.352 million in revenue, respectively, as disclosed in Court
papers.

As of the Petition Date, the total principal and accrued interest
outstanding on the Debtors' Toggle Notes was $144,678,183 and the
principal amount outstanding on the Debtors' Holdover Notes was
$10,320,900, according to Court documents.

The Debtors estimate that they owe trade creditors and other
unsecured creditors approximately $30,000,000.

As of the Petition Date, the Debtors were parties to 15 lawsuits in
the states courts in Indiana, Ohio, Colorado and Florida, United
States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Arizona and the United
States District Courts for the Northern District of Indiana and the
Western District of Washington.

The Debtors have hired Cole Schotz P.C., as bankruptcy counsel;
Carl Marks & Co., as financial advisor; and Prime Clerk LLC, as
claims and noticing agent.

Contemporaneously with the filing of their Chapter 11 petitions,
the Debtors have filed certain first day motions seeking permission
to, among other things, use cash collateral, use existing cash
management system, pay employee obligations, and prohibit utility
companies from discontinuing services.

Separately, 1103743 Ontario Inc., Buyers Group of Mississauga Inc.
and Marlexa Buying Power Inc., the Debtors' Canadian subsidiaries
that are not debtors in the Chapter 11 cases, commenced a proposal
proceedings on Nov. 2, 2016, under the Bankruptcy and Insolvency
Act to obtain order from the Ontario Superior Court of Justice

ENVIGO HOLDINGS: S&P Assigns 'B-' CCR & Rates Revolver Debt 'B+'
----------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said that it assigned its 'B-' corporate credit
rating to Envigo Holdings Inc.  The outlook is stable.

At the same time, S&P assigned a 'B+' issue-level rating and '1'
recovery rating to Envigo's first-lien revolver and bank loan.  The
'1' recovery rating indicates expectations for very high (90%-100%
range) recovery in the event of a default.

S&P also assigned a 'CCC' issue-level rating and '6' recovery
rating to Envigo's second-lien debt.  The '6' recovery rating
indicates expectations of negligible (0%-10%) recovery in the event
of a default.

Envigo is a provider of contract research services and research
models related primarily to the safety testing of pharmaceuticals,
chemicals, and agricultural products.

The rating on Envigo reflects the company's adjusted debt leverage
of 6x-7x and its position as a top-three player in both contract
research services and research models.  S&P believes that Envigo's
discretionary cash flow will be negligible in 2016, with the
potential for a small cash flow deficit, mainly because of
restructuring and other temporary costs and some cash-conversion
weakness.  In coming years, S&P expects the company to have
modestly positive cash flows, consistent with those of 'B-' peers.

S&P views testing for safety, similar research services, and the
related breeding of animals as critical inputs to the
pharmaceutical, chemical, and agriculture industries as well as
academic research organizations.  S&P believes that the positive
pharmaceutical funding and development environment and regulatory
requirements for chemical safety testing provide steady demand for
the top global non-clinical CROs.  S&P sees Envigo's top-three
position in both of its segments as important to its stability, as
its top customers tend to maintain relationships with multiple
service providers but show a preference for global, large,
established companies.  S&P believes the company's customer
concentration is similar to or less than that of other clinical
CROs.

S&P's rating on Envigo is limited by its position as a niche
service provider to much larger companies with significant
bargaining power.  The company is also about one-third the size of
the industry leader.  S&P believes non-clinical CROs' business is
more cyclical than that of clinical CROs because late-phase
clinical trials, which are more closely tied to revenue creation,
are likely to be prioritized in a downturn.  In addition, the
company has a limited track record under its current strategy,
having rebranded under the Envigo name only about a year ago.

S&P believes that leverage will be about 6.5x at the close of the
refinancing transaction and will decline to below 6x in 2017 due to
EBITDA expansion.  This is despite a $5 million accretion to debt
from the paid-in-kind (PIK) notes.  S&P views any decline in
leverage below 5x as temporary because it expects the company to
prioritize acquisitions and shareholder dividends over debt
repayment due to the controlling position of the company's
financial sponsors.  S&P believes that the company will be able to
cover a small cash flow deficit from cash on hand and its $10
million revolver.

S&P's main assumptions are:

   -- CROs will grow by 7%-8%, on average, based on trends in
      pharmaceutical R&D and outsourcing penetration.

   -- Envigo will grow more slowly than the overall group because
      its non-clinical services and animal models are more of a
      commodity than clinical research services.

   -- Demand for research models will be flat to declining and
      competition in the non-clinical contract research sector
      will be heavy and growing because of increased chemical
      testing and pharmaceutical outsourcing.

   -- Revenue growth in the low single digits from volume and
      pricing growth in the contract research segment and modest
      price increases that offset flat to negative volume growth
      in the research model segment.

   -- Gross margins that improve in the next year from the fall-
      off of one-time expenses and an organizational focus on
      efficiency.

   -- Selling, general, and administrative (SG&A) expenses will
      decline significantly in 2016 from integration efforts but
      will grow with revenue in the following years.

   -- Adjusted EBITDA margins of about 20% in the next year,
      staying in the low-20% range in subsequent years.

   -- Working capital as a use of cash in 2016 from pension
      payments and weak cash conversion, which S&P expects to
      improve in 2017.

   -- Capital expenditures of about $20 million in 2016, growing
      with revenue.

The stable outlook reflects S&P's expectation for low-single-digit
organic growth in 2017 and 2018 and adjusted EBITDA margins in the
low-20% area.  S&P expects the company will maintain leverage above
5x because its financial sponsors will likely favor acquisitions
and shareholder returns over permanent debt reduction.  S&P
believes that Envigo will generate negligible cash flow in the next
year, but S&P do expect some contract research sales growth and
efficiencies across the business.

S&P could consider a downgrade if, in the next year, adjusted
EBITDA falls to an expected run rate of about $60 million and
leverage increases to the 9x area, consistent with a year-over-year
revenue decline in the mid-single digits and a decline in adjusted
EBITDA margins of about 300 basis points (bps) from S&P's
expectations for about 21%. This could occur if pharmaceutical
companies shift more business to the two largest non-clinical CROs
and if facilities from the Harlan acquisition prove less profitable
than expected.  In this scenario, S&P believes that the capital
structure would be unsustainable.

In addition, S&P believes the company has limited capacity for a
debt-funded acquisition, given its limited cash flows, its cost of
capital, and current acquisition multiples above 10x in the CRO
industry.

S&P could consider upgrading Envigo if the company outperforms
S&P's expectations, leading S&P to believe it will generate
stronger discretionary cash flows, in the $15 million to $20
million range.  This scenario could unfold if sales in contract
research grow faster than expected due to greater brand recognition
in Europe and an increase in mandated safety testing elsewhere,
like in the U.S. In addition, higher discretionary cash flow could
be achieved from cost cutting in the research models business to
bring margins closer to those of competitors, with an
outperformance of about 300 bps-400 bps translating to adjusted
EBITDA margins in the mid-20% area.  Cash flow could also be
boosted by improved working capital management.


ENVIGO LABORATORIES: Moody's Assigns Caa1 CFR; Outlook Stable
-------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a Caa1 Corporate Family Rating
and Caa1-PD Probability of Default Rating to Envigo Laboratories,
Inc.  Moody's also assigned a B2 rating to Envigo's first lien
senior secured credit facilities and a Caa2 to its second lien
credit facility.  The proceeds of a new $130 million first lien
term loan will be used to refinance existing senior secured notes.
The rating outlook is stable.  This is the first time Moody's has
rated Envigo.

Ratings assigned:

Envigo Laboratories, Inc.

  Corporate Family Rating at Caa1

  Probability of Default Rating at Caa1-PD

  $10 million Senior Secured First Lien Revolver due 2021 at B2
   (LGD2)

  $130 million Senior Secured First Lien Term Loan due 2021 at B2
   (LGD2)

  $150 million Senior Secured First Lien Term Loan due 2020 at B2
   (LGD2)

  $130 million Senior Secured Second Lien Term Loan due 2020 at
   Caa2 (LGD5)

The outlook is stable

                         RATINGS RATIONALE

The Caa1 rating reflects Envigo's very high financial leverage,
with pro forma adjusted debt/EBITDA of over 8.0x for the twelve
months ended June 30, 2016.  The rating also reflects Envigo's weak
coverage of fixed costs, including interest, capital expenditures
and pension payments.  Further, if not refinanced in the next 18
months, Envigo's interest costs will step up considerably, putting
further pressure on the company's ability to generate consistently
positive free cash flow.  The ratings are also constrained by the
company's significant concentration of revenue and profits in the
UK, exposing the company to volatility associated with currency
fluctuations and economic risk associated with Brexit.  The vast
majority of the company's debt will be denominated in US dollars,
whereas more than half its profits are denominated in British
pounds.  The ratings are supported by high barriers to entry and
the defensible nature of the business model. In addition, going
forward, Envigo should benefit from restructuring programs that
have been undertaken over the past several years.

The rating outlook is stable, reflecting Moody's view that earnings
growth will be challenged due, in part, to currency headwinds
(assuming today's exchange rate) over the next 12 months.  Further,
while Moody's expects liquidity will be adequate, it may not be
ample enough to absorb an unexpected operating setback.

Moody's could upgrade the ratings if Envigo's earnings and cash
flow benefit from recent restructuring activities.  If the company
demonstrates a track record of earnings growth such that Moody's
expects adjusted debt to EBITDA to approach 7.0 times and free cash
flow is positive enough to absorb the scheduled step-up in interest
expense, then the ratings could be upgraded.

Moody's could downgrade the ratings if liquidity deteriorates or if
the company fails to sustainably grow earnings from current
levels.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was that for the
"Business and Consumer Service Industry" published in October
2016.

Headquartered in New Jersey, Envigo is an early stage contract
research organization.  The company provides non-clinical safety
assessment services.  It also provides laboratory animals (rats and
mice) for use in research by the pharmaceutical, chemical and crop
protection industries, as well as academic and governmental
institutions.  Net revenue for the twelve months ended June 30,
2016, approximated $437 million.

EXTREME PLASTICS: Blue Wolf Named Stalking Horse Bidder for Assets
------------------------------------------------------------------
Blue Wolf Capital Partners LLC, the New York-based private equity
firm, on Nov. 1, 2016, disclosed that Blue Wolf Capital Fund III,
L.P., an affiliate of Blue Wolf, has been named by the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court, District of Delaware as the stalking horse bidder
for the assets of Extreme Plastics Plus ("EPP" or the "Company"),
an environmental containment company that primarily serves the
domestic oil and gas industry.  Blue Wolf will participate as the
stalking horse bidder in an auction for the assets of EPP to be
held on Nov. 17, 2016.

EPP was founded in 2007, is headquartered in Fairmont, West
Virginia and has additional locations in Pennsylvania, Texas,
Oklahoma and New Mexico.  The Company provides a variety of
environmental containment services, including environmental liner
installation, above ground storage tank rentals and composite mat
rentals, to oil and gas companies operating in the Marcellus,
Utica, Eagle Ford, Permian and Mid-Continent basins.  Under the
terms of Blue Wolf's stalking horse bid, current EPP management,
including Founder and CEO Bennie Wharry, will remain with the
Company after the closing of the sale.

Impacted by the cyclical decline in the U.S. energy markets, EPP
filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on January 31, 2016.
Blue Wolf's bid will allow EPP to exit bankruptcy by the end of
2016 with a clean balance sheet and will position the Company for
an eventual oil and gas market recovery.  This investment would
mark the first investment from a partnership Blue Wolf entered into
earlier this year with K2 Energy Capital, LLC ("K2") and its
founder, Kevin W. Kuykendall, to pursue energy services
investments.

Adam Blumenthal, Managing Partner of Blue Wolf, said,
"Environmental protection has been and will continue to be critical
to the U.S. oil and gas industry.  EPP has an impressive track
record of providing unique and effective environmental containment
solutions to its customers, and these solutions will be in high
demand as the market recovers.  We are excited to partner with K2
on this investment and to work alongside EPP's experienced and
capable management team to improve and grow the business."

Bennie Wharry added, "A partnership with Blue Wolf and K2, combined
with a clean balance sheet upon emergence from Chapter 11, will
position EPP for future growth and profitability.  Blue Wolf and K2
have the operational capabilities and industry experience needed to
be extremely valuable partners to our Company.  They have shown a
strong commitment to dedicating the full range of resources needed
to set EPP up for long-term success."

Kevin Kuykendall added, "We're extremely pleased to be able to
partner with the management team and employees of EPP.  The
Company's Founder and CEO, Mr. Bennie Wharry, is one of the most
recognized and respected names in the environmental lining
industry, having enjoyed a 30-plus year career with several
different environmental lining firms.  EPP has also built a strong
operational management team including Wade Holt, Vice President of
Southern Operations.  With Blue Wolf's support and continued
leadership from Bennie and Wade, we're confident that EPP will
continue to be the dominant force in providing environmental
containment solutions to the oil and gas industry."

                  About Extreme Plastics Plus

Founded in 2007, privately-held Extreme Plastics Plus, Inc.,
operates an environmental containment business specializing in
providing environmental lining, above ground storage tanks,
composite rig mats, secondary steel wall containment systems, and
closed loop solids control services, primarily for the oil and gas
industry.  Extreme Plastics has six facilities in Fairmont, West
Virginia, Tunkhannock, Pennsylvania, St. Clairsville, Ohio, Moore,
Texas, Odessa, Texas, and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

The stock of Extreme Plastics is held entirely by EPP Intermediate
Holdings, Inc.  The stock of EPP Intermediate is held entirely by
EPP Holding Company, LLC, a non-debtor.

Extreme Plastics, and affiliate EPP Intermediate Holdings, Inc.,
sought Chapter 11 protection (Bankr. D. Del. Lead Case No.
16-10221) on Jan. 31, 2016, as the ongoing decline in the price of
oil and natural gas negatively impacted demand of the Debtors'
services.

Extreme Plastics estimated $10 million to $50 million in assets and
$50 million to $100 million in debt.  EPP Intermediate estimated $1
million to $10 million in assets and $50 million to $100 million in
debt.

As of the Petition Date, Extreme Plastics owes $49.5 million under
a secured facility provided by lenders led by Citizens Bank of
Pennsylvania, as agent.  The facility is secured by a lien in
substantially all of the Debtors' assets, as well as a pledge of
100% of the equity in Extreme Plastics and EPP Intermediate.

The Debtors tapped Sullivan Hazeltine Allinson LLC as attorneys and
Epiq Bankruptcy Solutions, LLC, as claims and noticing agent.

The U.S. Trustee has appointed five members to the Official
Committee of Unsecured Creditors.  The Committee selected Reed
Smith LLP as counsel.


FRAC SPECIALISTS: SSG Acted Co-Investment Banker in Asset Sale
--------------------------------------------------------------
SSG Capital Advisors, LLC, acted as the co-investment banker to
Acid Specialists, LLC, Cement Specialists, LLC and Frac
Specialists, LLC (individually "Acid", "Cement" and "Frac",
respectively; collectively referred to as the "Company")
culminating in the sale of substantially all assets to Encore
Energy Services, LLC ("Encore").  The sale was effectuated through
a Chapter 11 Section 363 process in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the Northern District of Texas.  The transaction closed in
September 2016.

Headquartered in Midland, TX, the Company is a provider of well
site services throughout the Permian Basin.  The Company's services
include acid and chemical pressure pumping, cementing and hydraulic
fracturing.

From 2012 through 2014 the Company experienced accelerated growth
with strong financial performance fueled by an expansion of its
Frac division.  In order to capitalize on strong industry
conditions at the time, the Company invested heavily in equipment
financed through capital lease agreements.  The subsequent and
unexpected decline in oil prices ultimately had a significant
downward impact on oilfield service activity.  As a result, the
Company's customer base deteriorated and its liquidity became
constrained leading to a Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing in May 2015.
SSG was engaged by the Company to evaluate strategic alternatives
to help restructure the Company's balance sheet.

SSG and the Company considered a number of potential solutions
including operational initiatives, disposal of non-core assets and
divisions, restructuring through a new capital raise and a sale of
the Company in whole or in parts.  Based on the prolonged decrease
in oil prices and oilfield activity, it became evident that
operational initiatives and/or new capital would not be feasible
standalone solutions.  The Company and its advisors concluded that
the best option was a combination of (1) returning idle and
underutilized equipment to capital lessors, (2) divesting of excess
owned equipment, (3) implementing operational initiatives to reduce
labor and insurance expenses and (4) selling the remaining core
business to a going concern buyer.  These initiatives enabled the
Company to maximize value to the estate while preserving jobs and
maintaining customer loyalty.

Other professionals who worked on the transaction include:

   -- Jay H. Krasoff of Chiron Financial Group, Inc., co-investment
banker to Acid Specialists, LLC, Cement Specialists, LLC and Frac
Specialists, LLC;

   -- Dennis S. Faulkner and D. Brian Crisp of Lain, Faulkner &

signed the petitions as manager.

On May 27, 2015, the Court directed the joint administration of the
cases.  The Debtors disclosed $61,675,313 in assets and $57,982,488
in liabilities.

Lynda L. Lankford, Esq., and Jeff P. Prostok, Esq., at Forshey &

The U.S. Trustee appointed five creditors to serve on an official

Specialist, LLC, et al. Mark J. Petrocchi, Esq. of Griffith, Jay &

FRESH & EASY: Bid to Compel Arbitration in "Chan" Denied
--------------------------------------------------------
Judge Brendan Linehan Shannon of the United States Bankruptcy Court
for the District of Delaware denied Fresh & Easy LLC's motion to
compel arbitration in the adversary proceeding captioned Diana
Chan, Plaintiff, v. Fresh & Easy, LLC, YFE Holdings, Inc., and The
Yucaipa Companies, LLC, Defendants, Adv. No. 15-51897 (BLS) (Bankr.
D. Del.).

Diana Chan worked in the produce department at one of Fresh &
Easy's California distribution centers until her termination on
October 30, 2015.  On November 12, 2015, Chan commenced an
adversary proceeding by filing a complaint on behalf of herself and
a purported class of similarly situated former employees against
YFE Holdings, Inc., the Yucaipa Companies, LLC, and Fresh & Easy.
Chan's two-count complaint sought to recover damages on account of
alleged violations of the Worker Adjustment and Retraining
Notification Act, 29 U.S.C. sections 2100-2109, and its California
counterpart, California Labor Code sections 1400-1408.

Fresh & Easy requested the Court to send the matter to arbitration
on an individual basis, expunge Chan's purported class claims, and
stay the adversary proceeding until completion of the arbitration.
Chan opposed the motion on the ground that the arbitration
agreement between the parties is unenforceable under the National
Labor Relations Act (NLRA) because it contains a class-action
waiver provision.

Judge Shannon held that a class-action waiver provision violates
substantive rights at the heart of the NLRA.  The judge explained
that Section 7 of the NLRA protects collective actions, and confers
a substantive right to employees to engage in the same; and that
Section 8 renders contractual provisions invalid that violate an
employee's Section 7 rights.  Further, Judge Shannon pointed out
that the Federal Arbitration Act (FAA) does not enforce a provision
that is illegal under another federal statute.  Therefore, the
judge concluded that the class waiver is illegal and unenforceable
pursuant to both the FAA's savings clause and well-settled case law
holding that a party cannot give up the right to pursue statutory
remedies by agreeing to arbitration.

Judge Shannon also held that the fact that Chan was given an
opportunity to opt out of the arbitration agreement does not alter
the Court's determination that the class waiver is unenforceable.

Lastly, Judge Shannon found that the class waiver cannot be severed
because it was central to the parties' agreement.  The judge
explained that while the arbitration agreement does contain a
savings clause that provides that the remaining agreement shall
remain in force if any provision is held to be unenforceable, such
a provision does not override the court's discretion, especially
where an essential piece of the overall contract is illegal.  The
judge also noted that the arbitration agreement does not provide a
specific saving mechanism in the event the class waiver is held
unenforceable.  

The bankruptcy case is In re: Fresh & Easy, LLC, Chapter 11,
Debtor, Case No. 15-12220 (BLS) (Bankr. D. Del.).

                   About Fresh & Easy, LLC

Fresh & Easy, LLC, a chain of grocery stores in the Southwest
United States, filed a Chapter 11 bankruptcy petition (Bankr. D.
Del. Case No. 15-12220) on Oct. 30, 2015.  The petition was signed
by Peter McPhee, the CFO.  The Debtor estimated assets of $10
million to $50 million and liabilities of at least  $100 million.

Judge Christopher S. Sontchi is assigned to the case.

The Debtor has engaged Cole Schotz P.C. as counsel, Epiq Bankruptcy
Solutions, LLC, as claims and noticing agent, DJM Realty Services,
LLC, and CBRE Group, Inc., as real estate consultants and FTI
Consulting, Inc., as restructuring advisors.

                        *     *     *

The Debtor has undertaken the process of liquidating the estate's
assets located at its retail locations and distribution center with
the assistance of Hilco Merchant Resources, LLC, and Industrial
Assets Corp., respectively, has engaged DJM Realty Services, LLC,
and CBRE, Inc., to market its leasehold interests, and has recently
engaged Hilco Streambank to assist with the disposition of its
intellectual property.

As part of the claims process, a bar date of Feb. 19, 2016, was
established by the Court for creditor claims.


FUNCTION(X) INC: Borrows Additional $255,000 from Sillerman
-----------------------------------------------------------
As previously disclosed by Function(x) Inc. in a Form 8-K filed on
June 12, 2015, Sillerman Investment Company IV, LLC, an affiliate
of Robert F.X. Sillerman, the Company's executive chairman and
chief executive officer of the Company, agreed to provide a line of
credit to the Company.

As previously disclosed in Section 2.04 in the First Amendment to
the Company's Current Report Form 8-K filed on Oct. 28, 2016, the
Company had fallen below the Minimum Cash Reserve of $1,000,000 for
a period of more than three trading days, which constituted an
Event of Default under the Debentures.  While the Company is taking
steps to secure liquidity so that it can maintain the Minimum Cash
Reserve, if the Company is not able to obtain it from other
sources, the Company is reliant on the immediately due guarantee
requirement of its CEO and advances from his affiliate, Sillerman
Investment Company IV, LLC, to meet this requirement. However, the
Company said there can be no assurances it will be able to do so
nor that it will be a cure for the default.  As a result, the
Purchasers of the Debentures will continue to have the remedies as
described in Item 1.01 of the First Amendment.

On Oct. 28, 2016, the Company borrowed an additional $255,000 under
the Line of Credit.  The principal amount now outstanding under the
Line of Credit is $1,864,586 and the Company is entitled to draw up
to an additional $4,035,414 under the Line of Credit.

qualification on the consolidated financial statements for the year

working capital that raise substantial doubt about its ability to

GARDA WORLD: Moody's Affirms B2 CFR; Outlook Remains Stable
-----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service affirmed Garda World Security
Corporation's B2 corporate family rating, B2-PD probability of
default rating, downgraded the ratings on the company's senior
secured revolver and term loans to B1 from Ba3, and assigned a B1
rating to the proposed US$125 million add-on term loan.  Moody's
also affirmed the Caa1 rating on the senior unsecured notes and
withdrew the SGL rating.  The ratings outlook remains stable.

Net proceeds from the US$125 add-on first lien term loan will be
used to repay amounts outstanding under the company's revolving
credit facility.

"The ratings affirmation considers that Garda's transaction is
leverage-neutral and adjusted Debt/EBITDA remains around 6.6x,"
said Peter Adu, Moody's AVP.  "The downgrade of the secured debt
ratings reflects the increase in the proportion of that debt class
in the capital structure such that there is less loss absorption
capacity provided by unsecured debt beneath them", added Adu.

Rating Assigned:

  US$125 mil. add-on secured term loan B due 2020, B1(LGD3)

Ratings Affirmed:

  Corporate Family Rating, B2
  Probability of Default Rating, B2-PD
  US$440 mil. senior unsecured notes due 2021, Caa1 (LGD5)

Ratings Downgraded:

  US$150 mil. senior secured revolving credit facility due 2018,
   to B1 (LGD3) from Ba3 (LGD3)
  US$617 mil. senior secured term loan B (including delayed draw)
   due 2020, to B1 (LGD3) from Ba3 (LGD3)
  US$107 mil. senior secured delayed draw term loan B due 2020, to

   B1 (LGD3) from Ba3 (LGD3)
  C$131M senior secured term loan B due 2020, to B1 (LGD3) from
   Ba3 (LGD3)

Ratings Withdrawn:

  SGL-2 Speculative Grade Liquidity, WR

Outlook:
  Remains Stable

                        RATINGS RATIONALE

Garda's B2 CFR is primarily influenced by its high leverage (pro
forma adjusted Debt/EBITDA of 6.6x for LTM Q2/F17), appetite for
debt-financed acquisitions, reputational risk stemming from
exposure to high-threat projects in the Middle East and Africa, and
low organic growth prospects in its two businesses - cash services
and protective services.  Moody's expects recent acquisitions to
support earnings growth through the next 12 to 18 months, and that
leverage should trend down to 6x in this timeframe, but not below,
as the company has limited its debt repayment in the past to the
mandatory requirements in its credit agreement.  The rating
considers that tuck-in acquisitions will likely take precedence
over additional debt repayments in the application of free cash
flow.  The rating also reflects Garda's relatively stable
businesses with high contract renewal rates and recurring revenue,
strong market positions, and good geographic diversity.  Moody's
believes the growing trend towards electronic transactions, which
reduces cash usage, and competition will limit the company's
organic growth prospects in its cash services business in the long
term.

Garda has good liquidity, supported by cash of C$79 million at
Q2/2017 (July 2016), free cash flow of about C$40 million for the
next four quarters, and about C$140 million of availability, after
letters of credit, under its US$150 million revolver due in
November 2018 when the refinance transaction closes.  These sources
are sufficient to meet term loan amortization of about C$12 million
per year.  Garda has a US$80 million Export Development Corporation
senior secured revolving facility due in November 2018, but its
usage is for investments only and is therefore not a source of
liquidity.  The facility will be fully available when the refinance
transaction closes.  Aegis' US$30 million revolver facility due in
June 2017, which has about C$4 million used, is current and Moody's
does not assume its renewal. Garda's revolver is subject to a
springing maximum first lien secured leverage covenant when
drawings and letters of credit exceed a certain threshold.  Moody's
expects cushion in excess of 10% for the next 4 to 6 quarters.
Garda has limited ability to generate liquidity from asset sales as
most of its assets are encumbered.

The outlook is stable as earnings growth and mandatory debt
repayment will enable leverage to be sustained around 6x through
the next 12 to 18 months.

An upgrade would be considered if Garda maintains good liquidity
and sustains adjusted Debt/EBITDA declines towards 5x (currently
6.8x) and EBITA/Interest above 2.5x (currently 1.2x).  The rating
could be downgraded if liquidity worsens, possibly from negative
free cash flow for an extended period or if adjusted Debt/EBITDA is
sustained above 6.5x and EBITA/Interest below 1x.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Business and
Consumer Service Industry published in October 2016.

Garda World Security Corporation is a provider of cash services in
North America (including armored cars), protective services in
Canada (including airport pre-board screening at 28 of Canada's
airports) and international protective services in high risk
economies.  Revenue for the twelve months ended July 31, 2016
totaled C$2.4 billion.  Garda is headquartered in Montreal, Quebec
and is owned by Rhone Capital 42%, Management 36%, and Apax
Partners 22%.


GARDA WORLD: S&P Affirms 'B' Rating on 1st-Lien Debt
----------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said it affirmed its 'B' issue-level rating,
with a '3' recovery-level rating, on Quebec-based Garda World
Security Corp.'s first-lien debt following the company's
announcement that it is seeking to upsize the aggregate principal
amount of its U.S. dollar-denominated first-lien secured term loan
under its existing credit agreement by US$125 million (for a total
of about US$850 million).

All of S&P's other ratings on the company are unchanged, including
its 'B' long-term corporate and unsecured debt ratings on Garda.
The outlook is stable.  The company intends to use the net proceeds
from the incremental term loan to repay borrowings under its
revolver, as well as to pay related fees and expenses.

"We base our corporate credit rating on Garda on our assessment of
its operations in a highly competitive and fragmented market, but
having good customer and geographic diversity and a large portion
of revenues that are contracted and recurring.  We expect the
company to maintain adjusted EBITDA to interest coverage above 2.0x
over the next two years," said S&P Global Ratings credit analyst
Aniki Saha-Yannopoulos.

S&P assess Garda as having a satisfactory business risk profile and
highly leveraged financial risk profile.  S&P expects the company
will continue to maintain a high adjusted debt-to-EBITDA above 7x,
which in S&P's view, limits the upside potential for its corporate
credit rating on Garda.  S&P updated its recovery analysis to
reflect the proposed refinancing, with no change in S&P's '3'
recovery rating (50%-70% indicating meaningful recovery, at the low
end of the range) on the company's first-lien debt.

HOUSTON PROPERTY: Peachtree Investments Opposes Cash Use
--------------------------------------------------------
Peachtree Investments, LLC informed the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the District of Arizona that it did not consent to Houston
Property, LLC's use of cash collateral.

Peachtree Investments relates that it holds a properly perfected
security interest in the Debtor's real property located at 3010
East Main Street, Gilbert, Arizona.  Peachtree Investments further
relates that it also holds a properly perfected security interest
in all income generated by the Property.

Peachtree Investments tells the Court that the Debtor is indebted
to it in the amount of $741,188,94, as of October 21, 2016,
pursuant to a Note.  Peachtree Investments further tells the Court
that the Debtor defaulted in under the terms the Note and the Deed
of Trust securing the Note, by failing to make all of the required
payments due since March, 2016.  Peachtree Investments adds that
despite the Debtor's default and written demand made by it upon the
Debtor, the Debtor had failed to cure the default.

Peachtree Investments contends that all rents and/or proceeds from
the Property paid pre-petition or post-petition to the Debtor by
any person constitutes cash collateral for repayment of the debt
owed to Peachtree Investments.  Peachtree Investments further
contends that the Debtor is prohibited from using such cash
collateral without the Peachtree Investments' consent or an order
of the Court authorizing such use.

Peachtree Investments tells the Court that the Debtor should be
required to pay over to Peachtree Investments all rental proceeds
the Debtor has collected.  It further tells the Court that in the

IDERA INC: S&P Assigns 'B' Rating on 1st Lien Term & Revolver Loans
-------------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings assigned its 'B' issue-level rating and '3'
recovery rating to Houston-based Idera Inc.'s first-lien term loan
and revolving credit facility.  The '3' recovery rating indicates
S&P's expectation of meaningful (50%-70%, upper half of the range)
recovery for first-lien debt holders in the event of default.  At
the same time, S&P assigned its 'B-' issue-level rating and '5'
recovery rating to Idera's second-lien term loan.  The '5' recovery
rating indicates S&P's expectation of modest (10%-30%, lower half
of the range) recovery for the second-lien debt holders.

The 'B' corporate credit rating on Idera Inc. is unchanged after
the refinancing of its existing debt.  The proceeds from the
$360 million first-lien term loan due 2023 and $150 million
second-lien term loan due 2024 will be used, along with cash on the
balance sheet, to repay the debt outstanding and fund a
$100 million dividend distribution to shareholders.  The
$25 million revolving facility due 2021 will be undrawn at close of
the transaction.

S&P's adjusted leverage is now expected to reach the high 6x area
by fiscal year-end 2017, up from the mid- to high 5x area as
previously forecast, but this is still within S&P's downside
trigger of 7x leverage.  However, in light of the higher leverage
as well as S&P's preference for implemented cost savings to be
recognized in the income statement, S&P maintains the negative
outlook.

                         RECOVERY ANALYSIS

Key analytical factors

   -- S&P values the company on a going-concern basis using a 5.5x

      multiple of S&P's projected emergence EBITDA.

   -- S&P's simulated default scenario assumes a default occurring

      in 2019 due to increased competition resulting in pricing
      pressure and lower renewal rates, and due to database
      original equipment manufacturers' providing competing
      products at no charge to their database customers, eroding
      the need for third-party software solutions.

Simulated default assumptions
   -- Simulated year of default: 2019
   -- EBITDA at emergence: $50 million
   -- EBITDA multiple: 5.5x
  -- LIBOR at default: 3.25%

Simplified waterfall
   -- Net enterprise value (after 5% administrative costs):
      $261 million
   -- Valuation split in % (obligors/non-obligors): 65/35
   -- Collateral value available to first-lien debt claims
      (collateral/non-collateral): $229 million/$16 million
   -- Secured first-lien debt claims: $387 million
      -- Recovery expectations: 50% to 70% (upper half of the
      range)
   -- Secured second-lien debt claims: $160 million
      -- Recovery expectations: 10% to 30% (lower half of the
      range)

IRENE STACY COMMUNITY: Selling Butler Property for $175,000
-----------------------------------------------------------
Irene Stacy Community Mental Health Center asks the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania to authorize the
sale of real property located at 115-119 East North Street, Butler,
Pennsylvania, to Nonprofit Development Corp. for $175,000.

The Debtor and the Purchaser entered into Agreement of Sale for the
sale of the property on Oct. 18, 2016.

The sale of the property is conditioned, inter alia, on the entry
by the Court of a final, nonappealable Sale Order, satisfactory to
the Buyer.

A copy of the Agreement of Sale attached to the Motion is available
for free at:

           http://bankrupt.com/misc/Irene_Stacy_295_Sales.pdf

The property is subject to a Lease Agreement ("Lease") by and
between the Debtor, as Landlord, and The C.A.R.E. Center, as
Tenant, dated May 5, 2016, for a term of 18 months. The Lease is
subject to an early termination provision, wherein the Tenant
understands that the property is on the market and subject to sale
to a third party. Either party may terminate the Lease 90 days
after written notice of the Landlord's notice of sale.

The parties which may hold mortgages, liens, claims, encumbrances
or an interest against the Real Estate are: (i) NexTier Bank, N.A,
(ii) Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General, (iii)
Butler County Human Services, (iv) Southwestern Pennsylvania Human
Services, Inc., and (v) The C.A.R.E. Center.

The sale of the property will be in "as is, where is" condition,
without representations or warranties of any kind whatsoever; and
free and clear of all liens, claims, interests and encumbrances.

The Debtor believes that the proposed sale is fair and reasonable,
and acceptance and approval of the same is in the best interests of
the Debtor's estate. Accordingly, the Debtor respectfully requests
that the Court approves the sale of the property, determines that
the Buyer is a good faith purchaser entitled to the protections of
Bankruptcy Code Section 363(m), and provides such other and further
relief as the Court deems to be just and proper.

The Purchaser can be reached at:

          NONPROFIT DEVELOPMENT CORP.

ITT EDUCATIONAL: Cerberus to Lend $6M for Sale Effort
-----------------------------------------------------
Peg Brickley, writing for The Wall Street Journal Pro Bankruptcy,
reported that the bankruptcy trustee mopping up after the collapse
of ITT Educational Services Inc. has lined up $6 million worth of
financing for the cleanup effort.

According to the report, loans are coming from finance affiliates
of Cerberus Capital Management, an existing lender to the failed
for-profit educator, operator of the ITT Tech chain.  Lawyers for
bankruptcy trustee Deborah J. Caruso say the cash is desperately
needed, as the trustee can't do much without funding, the report
related.  A bankruptcy judge in Indianapolis will review the loan,
the report further related.

Cerberus is conditioning the bankruptcy loan on the sale of at
least $33 million worth of abandoned campuses by the end of March
2017, the report added.  ITT Tech's real estate is already being
marketed, and estimates are it could bring from $70 million to $100
million -- more than enough to pay off what Cerberus is owed, about
$22 million, as well as the bankruptcy financing, the report said.

In addition to borrowing power, Cerberus has agreed to allow Ms.
Caruso use of the cash in ITT Tech's coffers during the bankruptcy,
the report added.  As secured lender, Cerberus is entitled to claim
the company's cash as collateral for its loans, the report noted.

                     About ITT Educational

ITT Educational Services, Inc., is a proprietary provider of
post-secondary degree programs in the United States based on
revenue and student enrollment.  As of Dec. 31, 2015, ITT was
offering: (a) master, bachelor and associate degree programs to
approximately 45,000 students at ITT Technical Institute and
Daniel
Webster College locations; and (b) short-term information
technology and business learning solutions for individuals.

ITT Educational and its subsidiaries ESI Service Corp. and Daniel
Webster College, Inc. ceased operations and commenced bankruptcy
proceedings by filing voluntary petitions for relief under
Chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code (Bankr. S.D. Ind.) on Sept.
16, 2016.


JAMESTOWN, NY: Moody's Lowers GOLT Rating to Ba1; Outlook Negative
------------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has downgraded the city of Jamestown,
NY's general obligation limited tax (GOLT) rating to Ba1 from Baa1.
The par amount of debt affected totals approximately $32.6
million.  The outlook has been revised to negative.

The downgrade to Ba1 reflects the city's narrow financial position
and continued structurally imbalanced operations characterized by
the use of one-time revenue sources, limited revenue-raising
ability and the limited recurring expenditure reductions available
to the city.  The rating further incorporates the city's
above-average debt and pension burdens and a modest tax base with
weak wealth and income levels.

Rating Outlook

The negative outlook reflects the city's reliance on state and
county assistance to close a large structural budget gap (fiscal
2017) and our expectation that its very narrow financial position
will persist.

Factors that Could Lead to an Upgrade

  Established trend of structurally balanced operations
  Growth in reserves and liquidity
  Significant tax base growth and improvement in wealth and income

   levels of residents

Factors that Could Lead to a Downgrade

  Further weakening of liquidity and reserves
  Failure to achieve a structurally balanced fiscal 2017 budget
  Continued reliance on non-recurring revenue sources or one-time
   measures to balance operations

Legal Security

The bonds are secured by the city's general obligation pledge as
limited by the Property Tax Cap-Legislation (Chapter 97 (Part A) of
the Laws of the State of New York, 2011).

Obligor Profile

Jamestown is located in Chautauqua County, close to the
Pennsylvania border and 71 miles southwest of Buffalo.  The city
has a total land area of 9.5 square miles and an estimated
population of 30,075 residents.

Methodology

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


JPS COMPLETION: Selling Equipment and Tools
-------------------------------------------
JPS Completion Fluids, Inc., asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Western District of Texas to authorize the sale of downhole motors
and related equipment and tools, plus one trailer ("ETS Sale
Items") to ETS Oil Services, LP for $100,000; flowback and related
equipment ("PICO Sale Items") to PICO Technologies, LLC for
$207,900; and remaining inventory, equipment, and tools ("Remaining
Sale Items"), subject to higher and better offers.

The Debtor's goal in this bankruptcy is to sell all its assets for
the highest and best prices and the expedited Motion reflects
further substantial progress towards achieving that goal.

The Debtor ceased business operations at the end of February 2016,
and has no operations or employees. The Debtor has marshaled the
majority of its equipment and materials at two of its yards near
Mathis, Texas where it is available for sale. Some of the Debtor's
equipment and vehicles located in Colorado are leased to an
insider, G5S, on terms accepted by the Debtor's secured lender,
Texas Champion Bank ("Bank") which has a fully perfected lien in
the equipment and is generally acknowledged to be under secured;
the Colorado-based vehicles are also fully encumbered and of no
value to the estate, and so have been surrendered by the Debtor and
the stay was lifted. G5S is negotiating with the Bank to purchase
the equipment in Colorado and with the other secured lenders
concerning the vehicles there.

Previously the Debtor sold 12 mixers and 6 filter pods to Total
Tank Systems, Inc., and currently has the proceeds of that sale in
its segregated bank account, subject to the liens of San Patricio
County, the Bank, and the IRS, in that order of priority.

The sale of the ETS Sale Items, the PICO Sale Items and the
Remaining Sale Items will be on a "where is, as is basis," with no
warranty or guarantee being provided and with the buyer being
responsible for all shipping costs.

The review of applicable lien documents suggests that no creditor
other than the San Patricio County, the Bank, and the IRS have a
specific security interest in and to the ETS Sale Items, the PICO
Sale Items and the Remaining Sale Items. San Patricio County will
be paid in full from proceeds of the prior equipment sale. As such,
it appears that the Bank has a first-priority, perfected, and
unavoidable security interest in and to the ETS Sale Items,
pursuant to its blanket prepetition lien, and the IRS has a second
lien, however the IRS second lien is entirely unsecured.

The Debtor and the Bank estimate that the Debtor's Remaining Sale
Items has a value less than the remaining balance due by the Debtor
to the Bank.

Because the Remaining Sale Items have a fair market value less than
the remaining balance due to the Bank, the Debtor proposes the
following procedure for the sale of the Remaining Sale Items:

          a.  Upon receipt of an offer for the purchase of all or
part of the Remaining Sale Items, the Debtor will file a notice of
the offer and serve it on all the following: (i) Texas Champions
Bank, (ii) the IRS, (ii) San Patricio County, (iv) the U.S.
Trustee, (v) Sergio Garza, (vi) Pedro Gonzalez, and (vii) any other
party requesting notice.

          b. Each party receiving notice will have 7 business days
to file a written objection to the proposed sale.

          c. If no written objections are filed within 7 business
days, then the Debtor will be permitted to sell the Remaining Sale
Items.

The Debtor believes that the establishment of the procedure for the
sale of the Remaining Sale Items is in the best interest of the
Estate in that it will minimize the cost of liquidation and will
enable the Debtor to proceed toward confirmation of a liquidating
Plan at the least expense.

To compensate the Estate for the costs of sale of all the foregoing
items, the Debtor requests a surcharge against all sale proceeds of
10% of gross sale proceeds, to be transferred upon receipt to the
Debtor's operating account for application to allowed claims for
administrative expenses of the estate. The Debtor submits that a
10% surcharge is reasonable, fair, and fully supported by the
Bankruptcy Code and the facts.

The Debtor also requests that the Order be effective immediately by
providing that the 14-day stay is inapplicable and waived, so that
they may proceed as expeditiously as possible with the sales.

KIRK'S FRAMING: U.S. Trustee Unable to Appoint Committee
--------------------------------------------------------
An official committee of unsecured creditors has not yet been
appointed in the Chapter 11 case of Kirk's Framing Inc. as of
October 31, according to a court docket.

Kirk's Framing Inc. filed a chapter 11 petition (Bankr. M.D. Fla.
Case No. 16-03390) on September 6, 2016, disclosing under $1
million in both assets and liabilities.  The Debtor is represented
by Thomas C. Adam, Esq.

The Debtor is a Florida corporation based in Orange Park, Florida.
The Debtor is in the business of design and construction of wood
framing of residential real properties in Clay, Duval, St. Johns
and Nassau counties. The Debtor's services include floor joist,
roof, steps, and zipwall installations.


KIRWAN OFFICES: Shareholder Asks Court to Extend Exclusive Periods
------------------------------------------------------------------
Stephen Lynch, a shareholder of Debtor Kirwan Offices S.A.R.L.,
asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New
York to extend the exclusive periods for the Debtor to file a
chapter 11 plan until 14 days after the Court decides on his motion
to dismiss the case.

Lynch asserts that his Dismissal Motion is largely premised on the
ground that the Debtor's involuntary chapter 11 case was filed in
bad faith by the Debtor's Financing Shareholders Lapidem Limited
and Mascini Holdings Limited, so that if the Court dismisses the
case or abstains, a plan will be unnecessary.

Lynch also asserts that he would vigorously oppose any plan that
the Financing Shareholders intend to file since it is a plan to
evade the restrictions contained in the Debtor's Shareholder
Agreement (which preclude them from settling pending litigation in
the Netherlands without Lynch's consent), and to obtain for
themselves and their principals full releases from any liability on
account of their actions, while preserving claims against Lynch for
seeking to enforce those restrictions.

Lynch relates that two days after the Petition Date, the Financing
Shareholders filed a motion to terminate Kirwan's exclusive period
to file a plan, explaining to the Court that they intended to file
a plan that would cancel "all stock in Kirwan" and dissolve
Kirwan's governance structure; terminate its shareholders'
governance rights; settle the Dutch litigation for $137.5 million;
bar "Mr. Lynch and all other persons from pursuing any litigation
against any of the settling parties in any forum on account of any
matter connected to the litigation and/or Kirwan;" and preserve the
Financing Shareholders' right to obtain standing to sue Mr. Lynch
for damages."

Lynch also relates that he filed a Dismissal Motion, seeking six
alternative forms of relief. Lynch adds that although the Court
denied with prejudice some of the relief requested, the Court,
however, expressly reserved its decision on Lynch's request to
dismiss the chapter 11 case under section 1112 of the Bankruptcy
Code and on related section 305 abstention/dismissal grounds.

Lynch also tells the Court that since entry of the Order for
Relief, Lynch has been working with the Financing Shareholders to
prepare a Stipulation of Facts and accompanying exhibits and a
briefing schedule for the remaining issues under the Dismissal
Motion and expect to coordinate a hearing date with the Chambers
soon.

Accordingly, an extension of exclusivity, which would otherwise
expire on Nov. 2, 2016, is necessary to prevent wasteful litigation
over such a plan that dismissal would render moot.

KISSNER HOLDINGS: Moody's Assigns B3 CFR; Outlook Positive
----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a B3 corporate family rating and
a B3-PD probability of default rating to Kissner Holdings LP.
Moody's also assigned a B3 rating to the proposed $400 million
senior secured notes due 2022.  The proceeds of the new notes will
be used to refinance existing debt at Kissner Milling Company
Limited and BSC Holding Inc and to fund a dividend distribution to
the sponsors Metalmark and SilverTree.  The action effectively
moves the B3 corporate family rating to Kissner Holdings LP from
Kissner Milling Company Limited and revises the outlook to
positive.  The existing B3 corporate family rating of Kissner
Milling Company Limited and other instrument ratings will be
withdrawn after the transaction closes.

Kissner Milling acquired BSC Holdings Inc. (BSC), which includes
the Lyons salt mine in Kansas and a bulk deicing salt business, in
October 2015.  Previously, BSC was outside of the restricted group.
Under the new structure, earnings from BSC will be included in the
consolidated financials and will be used to support debt service on
the new notes.

Issuer: Kissner Holdings LP

Assignments:

  Probability of Default Rating, Assigned B3-PD
  Corporate Family Rating, Assigned B3
  Senior Secured Regular Bond/Debenture, Assigned B3 (LGD4)

Outlook Actions:

  Outlook, Assigned Positive

                          RATINGS RATIONALE

The B3 corporate family rating reflects high leverage, small scale
and limited product diversity as Kissner generates almost all of
its sales and earnings from the weather-dependent deicing salt
business.  The rating reflects significant variability in earnings
and credit metrics which can be negatively affected by mild winters
in the Great Lakes, Great Plains, Midwest and East Coast regions.
Kissner's EBITDA in the twelve months ended July 31, 2016 has
declined due to a very mild 2015/2016 winter.  Pro forma for the
new debt issuance, Moody's adjusted debt/EBITDA is 6.6 times in the
twelve months ended July 31, 2016.  Kissner is in the process of
completing a new packaging facility near its Detroit salt mine
which should improve earnings of its packaging business. In
addition, Kissner's bulk deicing salt business is expected to
benefit from insourcing third-party salt purchases.  If all
projected earnings improvements from a new packaging facility and
insourcing salt are included, Moody's adjusted debt/EBITDA is
approximately 5.5 times.  These initiatives should improve BSC's
margins, which are currently significantly lower than Kissner's
legacy business.  Pro forma for the new bond issuance, Moody's
expects debt/EBITDA could range between 4 times and 7 times
depending on winter conditions and the number of snowfall and icing
events.  Moody's also expects the company to remain acquisitive,
which entails ongoing event and financial risks.  The company is
expected to generate significant free cash flow during harsh
winters, so cash will likely accrue on the balance sheet over time
and ultimately be used for dividends or additional acquisitions.

The rating is supported by the addition of the Lyons Salt Mine and
Central Salt bulk deicing business to Kissner's existing low cost
Detroit Salt Mine and its existing packaging business.  The
combination with BSC improves the company's operational, product
and geographic diversity.  The rating is also supported by
projected free cash flow generation and good liquidity.  Lack of
low cost alternatives to salt for deicing purposes and the need to
apply it during winter conditions ensure underlying demand for
Kissner's product, which supports the rating.

The positive outlook is based on Moody's expectations that Kissner
will be able to extract significant synergies from the combination
of two businesses, which could improve its metrics during mild and
harsh winters.

Moody's could upgrade the ratings if leverage declines below 5
times through a 2-5 year seasonal high/low cycle.  The rating could
also be upgraded, if retained cash flow remains sustainably above
10% and the company maintains a conservative financial policy (i.e.
does not continually dividend out excess cash or lever up to take
advantage of improved earnings).

Moody's could downgrade the rating if operating conditions and
liquidity deteriorate such that fixed charge coverage declines
below 1.3 time.  Moody's could also downgrade the rating if the
company undertakes a large debt-financed acquisition or another
dividend recapitalization.

Debt capital is currently comprised of an unrated $60 million
asset-based revolving credit facility due 2020 and $400 million
senior secured notes due 2022.  The senior secured notes are rated
B3, at the same level as the corporate family rating.  The notes
are guaranteed by all of the company's subsidiaries and secured by
substantially all assets including second priority in the
collateral securing the asset-based revolver (i.e. receivables and
inventory) and first priority interest in all other assets of the
issuer Kissner Holdings LP, co-borrowers Kissner Milling Company
Limited, Kissner USA Holdings Inc and BSC as well as all of the
subsidiaries.

Moody's expects Kissner to maintain good liquidity over the next 12
months.  The company had approximately $18.5 million of cash on
hand as of July 31, 2016, and a proposed $60 million revolver due
in 2020.  The company had approximately $11 million borrowings on
the revolver as of July 31, 2016.  The company may borrow on the
revolver to fund seasonal working capital needs.  The revolver is
not expected to have financial maintenance covenants.  The revolver
and the notes are secured by substantially all assets leaving no
sources of additional liquidity.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Global Chemical
Industry Rating Methodology published in December 2013.

Headquartered in Overland Park, Kansas, Kissner Holdings LP
operates two salt mines, one in Detroit, Michigan and another in
Lyons, Kansas.  It also distributes bulk rock salt and packaged
deicing products in the Great Lakes, Great Plains, Midwest and East
Coast regions.  Kissner is owned by an investor group comprised of
Metalmark Capital and SilverTree, a JV between Silverhawk Capital
Partners, and Demetree Salt, LLC.  The company generated sales of
approximately $187 million in the twelve months ended July 31,
2016, pro forma for the combination with BSC.


KISSNER HOLDINGS: S&P Assigns 'B' CCR & Rates US$400MM Notes 'B'
----------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said it assigned its 'B' long-term corporate
credit rating to Ontario-based de-icing rock salt producer and
packager Kissner Holdings L.P.  The outlook is stable.

At the same time, S&P Global Ratings assigned its 'B' issue-level
rating and '4' recovery rating to Kissner's proposed US$400 million
senior secured notes due 2022.  The '4' recovery rating on the
senior secured notes indicates S&P's expectation for average
(30%-50%; at the lower end of the range) recovery under S&P's
simulated default scenario.  S&P expects to withdraw its
issue-level and recovery ratings on Kissner Milling's US$220
million secured notes when they have been repaid.

"Our rating action follows the proposed dividend recapitalization
transaction the company announced and the new corporate structure
that now includes Kissner Milling and BSC Holding Inc. as wholly
owned subsidiaries of Kissner, the new rated entity," said S&P
Global Ratings credit analyst Michelle Dathorne.  Our assessment of
the group's credit profile, pro forma the proposed debt issue and
dividend recapitalization, estimates leverage would deteriorate
following the transaction; however, we believe cash flow metrics
should remain within our current thresholds for the 'B' rating,"
Ms. Dathorne added.

The 'B' corporate credit rating on parent Kissner reflects S&P's
assessment of its two subsidiaries, Kissner Milling and BSC, as
core entities within the group, and S&P's assessment of the group's
financial risk profile as highly leveraged and business risk
profile as weak.

Although S&P estimates leverage will materially increase from
current levels following the proposed debt refinancing, S&P expects
cash flows to improve in fiscal 2018 and beyond, under S&P's
base-case assumption of normal weather patterns.  

S&P assesses Kissner's business risk profile as weak based on the
company's small scale and limited product offering.  S&P's highly
leveraged financial risk profile reflects its view that the
company's funds from operations (FFO)-to-debt will remain below 12%
based on the increase in debt following the transaction and S&P's
expectation of limited deleveraging as it believes any positive
free operating cash flow would likely fund increased dividend
payments or capital spending, rather than fund debt reduction.

The stable outlook reflects S&P's opinion that Kissner's cost
structure, EBITDA margins, cash flow generation, and associated
cash flow metrics will continue to support the 'B' rating during
our 12-month outlook period.  Although S&P's estimated cash flow
metrics weaken pro forma the proposed refinancing--with fully
adjusted annual FFO to debt deteriorating to just below 5% in
fiscal 2017-- S&P expects cash flow metrics should strengthen in
the next fiscal year.  As a result, Kissner should be able to
maintain its five-year, weighted-average FFO-to-debt ratio near
10%, which S&P views to be at the stronger end of the cash flow
ratio range indicative of a highly leveraged financial risk
profile.

S&P could lower the rating if Kissner's weighted-average,
FFO-to-debt ratio trended below 6%, and S&P expected the cash flow
metrics to remain below these levels.  Cash flow metrics could
deteriorate due to unexpected dividend payouts or if the company is
unable to adjust its cost base in response to consecutive years of
mild winter weather conditions.  S&P could also lower the rating if
Kissner's liquidity position deteriorated to a level S&P viewed to
be less than adequate.

An upgrade in the next 12 months is unlikely because S&P expects
the company will maintain credit measures consistent with a highly
leveraged financial risk profile for at least the next few years.
Nevertheless, S&P could raise the rating if it believed Kissner was
able to increase its five-year, weighted-average FFO-to-debt above
12%, and maintain its cash flow metrics at or above this level.

                     About Lehman Brothers

Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. -- http://www.lehman.com/-- was the
fourth largest investment bank in the United States.  For more than
150 years, Lehman Brothers has been a leader in the global
financial markets by serving the financial needs of corporations,
governmental units, institutional clients and  individuals
worldwide.

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

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

The Debtors' bankruptcy cases are handled by Judge James M. Peck.
Harvey R. Miller, Esq., Richard P. Krasnow, Esq., Lori R. Fife,
Esq., Shai Y. Waisman, Esq., and Jacqueline Marcus, Esq., at Weil,
Gotshal & Manges, LLP, in New York, represent Lehman.  Epiq
Bankruptcy Solutions serves as claims and noticing agent.

Dennis F. Dunne, Esq., Evan Fleck, Esq., and Dennis O'Donnell,
Esq., at Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy LLP, in New York, serve as
counsel to the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors. Houlihan
Lokey Howard & Zukin Capital, Inc., is the Committee's  investment
banker.

On Sept. 19, 2008, the Honorable Gerard E. Lynch of the U.S.
District Court for the Southern District of New York, entered an
order commencing liquidation of Lehman Brothers, Inc., pursuant to
the provisions of the Securities Investor Protection Act (Case No.
08-CIV-8119 (GEL)).  James W. Giddens has been appointed as trustee
for the SIPA liquidation of the business of LBI.

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

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

                          *     *     *

According to a report by Wall Street Journal Pro Bankruptcy, the
team winding down Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. was slated to pay
out $3.8 billion to creditors in October 2016.  This is the 11th
distribution since Lehman failed in 2008, and brings the total
payout to more than $113.6 billion.  The bulk of the cash -- $83.6
billion -- has gone to pay so-called third-party, or non-Lehman
claims, WSJ related.

Bondholders were projected to receive about 21 cents on the dollar
when Lehman's bankruptcy plan went into effect in early 2012.
According to the WSJ report, Lehman said in a court filing that the
bondholders will have recovered more than 40 cents on the dollar
after the 11th distribution is completed; while general unsecured
creditors of Lehman's commodities unit will have received nearly 79
cents on the dollar following the latest distribution.

LEVEL 3 COMMUNICATIONS: Moody's Affirms Ba3 CFR; Outlook Stable
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service affirmed Level 3 Communications, Inc.'s
Ba3 corporate family rating along with ratings of the company's
existing debt instruments, following the announcement of
CenturyLink, Inc.'s proposed acquisition of Level 3 (CenturyLink,
Ba2 under review down), in a cash and stock transaction which
values Level 3 at nearly $35 billion.  As part of the same rating
action, Moody's affirmed Level 3's Ba3-PD probability of default
rating (PDR), SGL-2 speculative grade liquidity rating (indicating
good liquidity), and changed the company's ratings outlook to
stable from positive.

Bill Wolfe, a Moody's senior vice president, indicated that "The
ratings affirmation is based on our assessment that CenturyLink's
acquisition is not likely to cause any of Level 3's debt instrument
ratings to change."  This followed a separate release in which
Moody's placed CenturyLink's ratings on review for downgrade from
Ba2, citing higher leverage related to the debt financing component
of the proposed transaction.  Moody's noted that its review would
focus on the combined entity's leverage and cash flows, as well as
its growth potential and, based on the proposed transaction
structure, a downgrade of CenturyLink's CFR was expected to be
limited to one notch, to Ba3.

Wolfe also indicated that Level 3 would be part of an entity with,
potentially, the same Ba3 CFR as Level 3 has now, and debt holder
access to cash flow and assets would not change.  "While Level 3
becomes part of a much larger entity that, given its substantial
scale and improved cost profile after synergies are realized, will
be better able to compete in the fixed-line enterprise
telecommunications market, the related benefits are at least
partially off-set by the likelihood that Level 3 will distribute
cash to its more highly levered parent to help service
acquisition-related debt."  Wolfe also indicated that the
transaction will allow Level 3's large pool of net operating losses
to be monetized, augmenting free cash flow of the combined entity.

Level 3's ratings outlook was changed to stable from positive
because Level 3's debt instrument ratings are expected to survive
the acquisition at their prevailing levels and, in the intervening
period, Moody's expects Level 3's solid performance to continue,
thereby substantiating the existing Ba3 CFR as well as related
instrument ratings.  Should the transaction proceed, Moody's
expects to withdraw Level 3's CFR, PDR, and SGL-2 speculative grade
liquidity rating concurrent with closing which, pending normal
regulatory approvals, is expected in the third quarter of 2017.

Level 3 Communications, Inc., headquartered in Broomfield,
Colorado, is a publicly traded international communications company
with one of the world's largest long-haul communications and
optical Internet backbones.

CenturyLink, Inc., headquartered in Monroe, Louisiana, is an
integrated communications company that provides an array of
communications services to residential, business, governmental and
wholesale customers.

This summarizes the rating actions and Level 3's ratings:

Issuer: Level 3 Communications, Inc.
  Corporate Family Rating, Affirmed at Ba3
  Probability of Default Rating, Affirmed at Ba3-PD
  Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating, Affirmed at SGL-2
  Outlook, Changed to Stable from Positive
  Senior Unsecured Regular Bond/Debenture, Affirmed at B2 (LGD6)

Issuer: Level 3 Financing, Inc.
  Senior Secured Bank Credit Facility, Affirmed at Ba1 (LGD2)
  Senior Unsecured Regular Bond/Debenture, Affirmed at B1 (LGD5)
  Outlook, Changed to Stable from Positive

Issuer: Level 3 Escrow II, Inc. (assumed by Level 3 Financing,
Inc.)
  Senior Unsecured Regular Bond/Debenture, Affirmed at B1 (LGD5)

                          RATINGS RATIONALE

Level 3's Ba3 CFR is based on the company's solid business and
financial profile, Moody's expectation of modest margin improvement
as Internet Protocol-based services continue to replace legacy
services, and leverage of debt/EBITDA approaching 3.75x in 2017.
The rating is constrained by a lack of forwards earnings visibility
and off-market liquidity arrangements which rely solely on cash and
free cash flow.  In the event of an acquisition by CenturyLink,
Level 3's debt instrument ratings are expected to survive at their
prevailing levels and, in the intervening period, Moody's expects
Level 3's solid performance to continue.

Level 3's liquidity is assessed as good, SGL-2, based on
expectations of free cash flow of about $1 billion over the next
year and the company having a June 30, 2016 cash balance of
$1.3 million.  Moody's expects a telecommunications company of
Level 3's stature to maintain liquidity of between 10% and 15% of
its revenues, indicating that Moody's views the entirety of the
company's cash position as being integral to its liquidity.  That
said, with no debt maturities until 2018 and with no financial
covenants to comply with, the combination of the cash on hand and
cash to be generated over the next year provide good liquidity.

Rating Outlook

The ratings outlook is stable because Level 3's instrument ratings
are, based on existing deal parameters, expected to remain
unchanged following the company's acquisition by CenturyLink and,
in the intervening period, ratings are supported by Level 3's
ongoing solid performance and leverage of debt/EBITDA trending
towards 3.75x.

What Could Change the Rating -- Up

  Continued solid operating performance and margin expansion
  Solid liquidity arrangements
  Leverage of Debt/EBITDA approaching 3.5x on a sustainable basis
   (4.3x at 30Jun16)
  Free Cash Flow/Debt approaching 10% on a sustainable basis (7.4%

   at June 30, 2016,)

What Could Change the Rating -- Down

  Debt/EBITDA sustained above 4.5x (4.3x at 30Jun16)
  Free Cash Flow/Debt sustained below 5% (7.4% at 30Jun16)
  Deteriorating business performance including elevated churn and
   integration set-backs
  Weaker liquidity arrangements

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Global
Telecommunications Industry published in December 2010.

Corporate Profile

Headquartered in Broomfield, Colorado, Level 3 Communications, Inc.
is a publicly traded international communications company with one
of the world's largest long-haul communications and optical
Internet backbones.  Level 3's 2016 revenue is expected to be
approximately $8.5 billion and annual (Moody's adjusted) EBITDA to
be $3.2 billion.



LEVEL 3 COMMUNICATIONS: S&P Affirms 'BB' CCR; Outlook Stable
------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said it affirmed its 'BB' corporate credit
rating on Broomfield, Colo.-based Level 3 Communications Inc.  The
outlook is stable.

At the same time, S&P placed its 'BB+' issue-level rating on Level
3's senior secured debt at wholly owned subsidiary Level 3
Financing Inc. on CreditWatch with positive implications.  The '2'
recovery rating on this debt indicates S&P's expectation for
substantial (70%-90%; upper half of the range) recovery of
principal in the event of a payment default.

In addition, S&P placed its 'B+' rating on Level 3 Financing and
Level 3 Escrow II Inc.'s senior unsecured debt on CreditWatch with
positive implications.  The recovery rating on this debt is '6',
which indicates S&P's expectation for negligible (0%-10%) recovery
of principal in the event of a payment default.

"The rating affirmation is based on our favorable view of the
combined business, which we expect will have increased economies of
scale, a larger domestic and global reach to better service
enterprise customers, and an enhanced product portfolio offering to
better serve the enterprise market," said S&P Global Ratings credit
analyst Scott Tan.

Moreover, the combination of Level 3's dense metro and long haul
fiber assets with CenturyLink's local market facilities should
offer meaningful operating synergies and improved coverage.

The stable rating outlook reflects S&P's expectation that Level 3
will continue to grow revenue and EBITDA over the next year from
customer growth and the upselling of its existing customer base to
new IP-based telecommunications products and services, as well as
cost synergies from the TW Telecom acquisition, such that adjusted
leverage remains below 4x prior to acquisition close date.



LIFE PARTNERS: Bankruptcy Court Confirms Reorganization Plan
------------------------------------------------------------
H. Thomas Moran II, Chapter 11 trustee for Life Partners Holdings,
Inc. (LPHI), on Nov. 1, 2016, disclosed that the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the Northern District of Texas has entered an order
confirming the joint plan of reorganization for LPHI and its
subsidiaries.  The plan was sponsored by Mr. Moran and the Official
Committee of Unsecured Creditors in the Life Partners bankruptcy
case.

The confirmation by United States Bankruptcy Judge Russell F. Nelms
follows a contested confirmation hearing that spanned five weeks
and clears the way for implementation of the plan and the creation
of two new entities, Life Partners Position Holder Trust and Life
Partners Creditors' Trust.  The plan offers relief for more than
22,000 investors and preserves a $2.4 billion portfolio of life
insurance policies.  More than $1.4 billion of investor money
remains at risk.

"[Tues]day's order is a tremendous victory for the investors we
have been working so hard to protect," said Mr. Moran.  "We are
delighted to have joined with the Committee in obtaining
confirmation of a plan which projects a substantial recovery for
our investors -- 90 percent of invested capital on average over
time."

"Under the plan, investors have selected among various options for
the recovery of their investments, including options that enable
investors to avoid the financial burden of paying any further
insurance premiums," Mr. Moran continued.  "Those investors who
choose to tie their returns to individual policies are permitted to
do so."

The plan will be implemented in collaboration with the Committee
and Vida Capital, Inc., which has agreed to act as the policy
servicer and investor account administrator.  Vida has also agreed
to provide exit financing so that the Position Holder Trust can
emerge from bankruptcy and maturity funds can be distributed to
fractional holders as soon as possible.

The Position Holder Trust will oversee the liquidation of the
policy portfolio and distribution of the net proceeds to investors.
The Creditors' Trust will pursue litigation, including claims
previously brought against insiders at Life Partners, certain
individuals and entities who received monies from the fraudulent
enterprise, and others against whom the investors or the company
may have a right to recover.  The plan provides recoveries from
such litigation will be distributed to investors and other
creditors.

In early 2015, in the wake of a more than $46.8 million Securities
and Exchange Commission judgment against LPHI and its senior
executives for engaging in securities laws violations, LPHI's
former management put the company in bankruptcy.  After a lengthy
and detailed investigation, Mr. Moran concluded in his official
report to the Bankruptcy Court that, prior to the filing of the
bankruptcy case, Life Partners engaged in "one of the largest and
longest standing fraud schemes ever perpetrated in this State."

The LPHI reorganization plan is filed in the United States
Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Texas – Fort Worth
Division.  For more information, including copies of the confirmed
plan, please visit http://dm.epiq11.com/LFP

LYONDELL CHEMICAL: Court Upholds Reinstatement of Claw Back Suit
----------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Denise Cote of the United States District Court for the
Southern District of New York denied the shareholder defendants'
August 10, 2016 motions for reconsideration and certification in
the case captioned EDWARD S. WEISFELNER, as Litigation Trustee of
the LB Litigation Trust Trustee, v. HOFMANN, et al. Shareholders,
No. 16cv518 (DLC) (S.D.N.Y.).

This case arises out of the 2007 merger of Lyondell Chemical
Company, and an indirect subsidiary of the large publiclytraded
petrochemicals company Basell AF S.C.A., a Luxembourg entity
controlled by billionaire investor Leonard Blavatnik.  It is
alleged that, in May 2007, after receiving notice that Blavatnik
had acquired a 10% toehold position in Lyondell, Lyondell's CEO and
Board Chairman, Dan Smith, instructed management to "refresh" the
company's financial projections. Per Smith's instructions,
management improperly added nearly $2 billion of additional total
company earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and
amortization ("EBITDA") to its 2007 Long Range Plan. Smith
presented these inflated projections to the Board and used them as
well to negotiate a higher offer from Blavatnik. Smith presented
Blavatnik's offer to the Lyondell Board for its consideration and
approval in mid-July. The Lyondell Board unanimously voted to
approve the merger.

After the deal closed in December, Lyondell, which had taken on
approximately $21 billion of secured indebtedness from Blavatnik's
creditors, paid its shareholders $12.5 billion (the "Shareholder
Payments"). As a Board member, Smith received over $100 million in
merger-related consideration. In January 2009, after laboring under
negative liquidity, lower oil prices and other adverse
developments, Lyondell filed for chapter 11 protection. In re
Lyondell Chem. Co., No. 09-10023 (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Jan. 6, 2009).
The bankruptcy court appointed a Trustee to litigate on behalf of
the unsecured creditors. The Trustee now seeks to claw back
Shareholder Payments pursuant to an intentional fraudulent transfer
claim brought under 11 U.S.C. § 548(a)(1)(A).

The bankruptcy court has twice dismissed the Trustee's intentional
fraudulent transfer claim against Lyondell.  the Trustee had failed
to plead "the intent of a critical mass of Board members who might
have that [fraudulent] intent on their own" or that Smith or
another, by "reason of the ability to control them, had caused the
critical mass to form that intent."  

On July 27, 2016, this Court reversed the bankruptcy court's
Lyondell II decision and reinstated the intentional fraudulent
conveyance claim.  After surveying the corpus of Delaware agency
law, as well as relevant Restatement sections, this Court held that
"Smith's knowledge and intent may be imputed to Lyondell."  The
Court also found that the Trustee had pleaded facts sufficient to
support its intentional fraudulent conveyance claim.

The defendants filed a motion for reconsideration, or in the
alternative, for certification pursuant to 28 U.S.C. Section
1929(b).

Judge Cote held that the motion for reconsideration fails to point
to any matter or binding authority overlooked by the Court in its
initial disposition of the case, and was denied.

Judge Cote also denied the motion for certification because the
defendants have failed to establish that there is substantial
ground for difference of opinion on a controlling question of law.

                About Lyondell Chemical

Rotterdam, Netherlands-based LyondellBasell Industries is one of
the world's largest polymers, petrochemicals and fuels companies.
Luxembourg-based Basell AF and Lyondell Chemical Company merged
operations in 2007 to form LyondellBasell Industries, the world's
third largest independent chemical company.  LyondellBasell became
saddled with debt as part of the US$12.7 billion merger.  Len
Blavatnik's Access Industries owned the Company prior to its
bankruptcy filing.

On Jan. 6, 2009, LyondellBasell Industries' U.S. operations,
led by Lyondell Chemical Co., and one of its European holding
companies -- Basell Germany Holdings GmbH -- filed voluntary
petitions to reorganize under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy
Code to facilitate a restructuring of the company's debts.  The
case is In re Lyondell Chemical Company, et al., Bankr. S.D.N.Y.
Lead Case No. 09-10023).  Seventy-nine Lyondell entities filed
for Chapter 11.  Luxembourg-based LyondellBasell Industries AF
S.C.A. and another affiliate were voluntarily added to Lyondell
Chemical's reorganization filing under Chapter 11 protection on
April 24, 2009.

Deryck A. Palmer, Esq., at Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP, in
New York, served as the Debtors' bankruptcy counsel.  Evercore
Partners served as financial advisors, and Alix Partners and its
subsidiary AP Services LLC, served as restructuring advisors.
AlixPartners' Kevin M. McShea acted as the Debtors' Chief
Restructuring Officer.  Clifford Chance LLP served as
restructuring advisors to the European entities.

LyondellBasell emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in
May 2010, with a plan that provides the Company with US$3 billion
of opening liquidity.  A new parent company, LyondellBasell
Industries N.V., incorporated in the Netherlands, is the
successor of the former parent company, LyondellBasell Industries
AF S.C.A., a Luxembourg company that is no longer part of
LyondellBasell.  LyondellBasell Industries N.V. owns and operates
substantially the same businesses as the previous parent company,
including subsidiaries that were not involved in the bankruptcy
cases.  LyondellBasell's corporate seat is Rotterdam,
Netherlands, with administrative offices in Houston and
Rotterdam.

MAX EXPRESS: Seeks Plan Filing Extension Through Jan. 31
--------------------------------------------------------
Max Express, Inc. and the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors
ask the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of
California to extend the deadline to file a Chapter 11 Plan of
reorganization and disclosure statement, and the exclusivity
periods for three months or until January 31, 2017.

The Debtor tells the Court that it hopes to emerge from bankruptcy
by confirming a plan of reorganization.  The Debtor further states
that in order to file a plan and disclosure statement, enough time
needs to pass to:

     (1) allow the Debtor to establish a history of financial
performance after its change in business model from independent
contractor truck drivers to hourly employee truck drivers and
utilize the new model to assess profitability and provide
projections supporting feasibility of any proposed plan;

     (2) allow the Debtor to resolve the objections it has to the
filed claims; and

     (3) allow the port operations to stabilize due to Hanjin
Shipping's bankruptcy and the problems created by it, specifically,
the trucking companies working from the combined Los Angeles/Long
Beach Port, have experienced set-backs in their ability to
operate.

The Debtor filed the extension request on the same day the Court
entered an order extending the previously exclusivity deadline to
Oct. 31.  The Debtor contends that while it expects to file a plan
and disclosure statement by January 31, 2017, it is unable to file
a plan and disclosure statement by Oct. 31 deadline.

                            About Max Express, Inc.

Max Express, Inc., is a trucking company located in Carson,
California that provides trucking services throughout the western
United States.  It has approximately 30 trucks and 37 employees,
including the truck drivers and principals of the Debtor.  The
Debtor currently rents real property located at 22420 S. Alameda 10
Street, Carson, CA 90810, for the premises used as its place of
business.

The Debtor sought protection under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy
Code (Bankr. C.D. Cal. Case No. 16-14868) on April 15, 2016.  The
petition was signed by Richard Mo, secretary.  The case is assigned
to Judge Deborah J. Saltzman.  The Debtor estimated both assets and
liabilities in the range of $1 million to $10 million.

The Office of the U.S. Trustee on June 10, 2016, appointed three
creditors of Max Express, Inc., to serve on the official committee
of unsecured creditors. The Committee retained Levene, Neale,
Bender Yoo & Brill as its counsel.

MISSION NEW ENERGY: Incurs A$2.3 Million Net Loss in Fiscal 2016
----------------------------------------------------------------
Mission NewEnergy Limited filed with the Securities and Exchange
Commission its annual report on Form 20-F disclosing a loss after
tax of A$2.32 million on A$41,960 of total revenue for the year
ended June 30, 2016, compared to profit after tax of A$28.35
million on A$7.27 million of total revenue for the year ended
June 30, 2015.

As at June 30, 2016, the Company had A$6.17 million in total
assets, A$1.4 million in total liabilities, all current, and A$4.76
million in total equity.

BDO Audit (WA) Pty Ltd, in Wayne Basford, issued a "going concern"
qualification on the consolidated financial statements for the year
ended June 30, 2016.

The Group incurred net cash outflows from operating activities of
A$2,077,633.  At June 30, 2016, the Group had net working capital
of A$1,116,600.

"The ability of the Group to continue as a going concern is
dependent on securing additional funding through the issue of
further equity or debt, generating positive cash flows from
existing or new operations, and/or realising cash through the sale
of assets.

"These conditions indicate a material uncertainty that may cast a
significant doubt about the Group’s ability to continue as a
going concern and, therefore, that it may be unable to realise its
assets and discharge its liabilities in the normal course of
business.

"Management believes there are sufficient funds to meet the Group's
working capital requirements as at the date of this report, and
that there are reasonable grounds to believe that the Group will
continue as a going concern as a result of a combination of the
following reasons:

  * raise additional funding through debt and/or equity;

  * generate positive cash flows from existing or new operations;
    and

  * realise cash through the sale of assets.

"Should the Group not be able to continue as a going concern, it
may be required to realise its assets and discharge its liabilities
other than in the ordinary course of business, and at amounts that
differ from those stated in the financial statements. The financial
report does not include any adjustment relating to the
recoverability and classification of recorded assets or liabilities
that might be necessary should the entity note continue as a going
concern," as disclosed in the filing.

MURRAY ENERGY: S&P Assigns 'B-' Rating on New $175MM Term Loan B-3
------------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said that it assigned a 'B-' issue-level rating
(the same as the corporate credit rating) to U.S.-based Murray
Energy Corp.'s new $175 million first-lien term loan B-3 due April
2020.  The recovery rating is '3', indicating S&P's expectation for
meaningful (50% to 70%; lower half of the range) recovery in the
event of a payment default.  Murray will apply the debt proceeds
toward repaying the outstanding $202 million first-lien term loan
B-1 due April 2017.

The rating on the company's second-lien notes is unchanged at
'CCC', with a '6' recovery rating, indicating S&P's expectation for
negligible (0% to 10%; lower half of the range) recovery in the
event of a payment default.

S&P's 'B-' corporate credit rating and stable outlook on Murray
Energy Corp. are unchanged.

                        RECOVERY ANALYSIS

Key analytical factors

   -- S&P estimates gross recovery value of $1.25 billion,
      assuming an emergence EBITDA of $250 million and a 5x EBITDA

      multiple.

   -- The multiple used is in line with Murray's peers operating
      in the metals and mining upstream industry and reflects its
      broad enterprise value calculation in a bankruptcy.

   -- All debt amounts include six months of prepetition accrued
      interest.

Simulated default assumptions
   -- Year of default: 2019
   -- Emergence EBITDA: $250 million
   -- Valuation multiple: 5x
   -- Gross enterprise value (EV): $1.25 billion

Simplified waterfall
   -- Net enterprise value (after 5% administrative costs and
      capital leases): $1.19 billion
   -- Estimated collateral value: $1.14 billion (after revolver
      priority claim)
   -- Estimated first-lien claims: $1.9 billion (term loans B-2
      and B-3)
      -- Recovery expectations for first-lien claims: 50% to 70%
         (lower half of the range)
   -- Estimated remaining collateral value for second lien: $0
   -- Estimated second-lien claims: $1 billion
      -- Recovery expectations for second-lien claims: 0% to 10%

Company agreed to pay to the Sellers an aggregate of $2,288,667
plus 10% per annum interest accrued from May 20, 2016, in

convert) would be issuable subject to applicable exemption from
registration under the federal and state securities laws and

after the date of the Settlement Agreement any registration
statements on Form S-1 or Form S-3, in each case subject to

common stock upon any such conversion is capped to 19.99% of the
Company's outstanding shares of common stock as of the date hereof,
unless stockholder approval is obtained to issue more than such
19.99%.  Pursuant to the Settlement Agreement, the Company will not
be required or permitted to issue any shares of the Company common
stock if such issuance would violate the rules or regulations of
the NASDAQ.

On Oct. 25, 2016 (but made effective as of Oct. 21, 2016), the
Company and the Purchasers entered into the Amendment to the
Acquisition Agreement with the Sellers and the Target Companies
parties to thereto.  Pursuant to the Amendment, the Purchasers
agreed to not terminate, other than for "cause", employment of
certain employees listed on Exhibit A to the Amendment until
$2,288,667 is paid in full pursuant to the Settlement Agreement.
Further, pursuant to the Amendment, the Purchasers agreed to return
the funds in the aggregate amount up to the amount set forth in
Exhibit B to the Amendment for merchant services requested by
merchants within timeframes mutually agreed to between the
Purchasers and those merchants.  The Purchasers agreed to the
Sellers against any claims made by those merchants with respect to
the payment of the Maximum Amount.  Further, pursuant to the
Amendment, within five business days of the execution of the
Amendment, AnastasiaDate Ltd. or its designee will make all
outstanding payments due to Brosword Holding Limited, an indirect

NEW ENGLAND COMPOUNDING: 66 Cases in MDL No. 2419 Remanded
----------------------------------------------------------
In the case captioned IN RE: NEW ENGLAND COMPOUNDING PHARMACY,
INC., PRODUCTS LIABILITY LITIGATION, MDL No. 2419 (JPML), the
United States Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation issued a
conditional remand order for 66 actions to be remanded to their
respective transferor courts.

The dispute stems from an outbreak of fungal meningitis caused by
contaminated methylprednisolone acetate (MPA) manufactured and sold
by the New England Compounding Pharmacy, Inc., d/b/a New England
Compounding Center (NECC).  NECC operated a compounding pharmacy in
Framingham, Massachusetts, that combined and mixed ingredients to
create specific formulations of pharmaceutical products.  In the
fall of 2012, health officials traced a number of cases of fungal
meningitis to vials of MPA that had been manufactured by NECC.
NECC initiated a recall of several contaminated batches of MPA
before eventually surrendering its pharmacy license and ceasing
production of all pharmaceutical products.  NECC filed for
bankruptcy in December 2012.

The catastrophic outbreak of fungal meningitis resulted in (among
other proceedings) hundreds of individual tort lawsuits that were
eventually consolidated into multidistrict litigation (MDL).
Significant pretrial litigation and discovery has been conducted in
the MDL, and remains ongoing with regard to certain cases.  That
said, the transferee court concluded that for 66 cases, the
efficiencies of the MDL mechanism have been exhausted, and it is
time for these actions to go their separate ways.  Therefore, the
transferee court suggested that the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict
Litigation remand or transfer each of the 66 actions to its court
of origin for further proceedings.

order is available at https://is.gd/wInNhV from Leagle.com.

NEW MILLENNIUM: S&P Lowers CCR to 'CCC+'; Outlook Negative
----------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings lowered its corporate credit rating on San
Diego, Calif.-based clinical toxicology testing laboratory services
provider New Millennium Holdco Inc. (Millennium) to 'CCC+' from
'B-'.  The outlook is negative.

At the same time, S&P lowered the rating on Millennium's senior
secured term loan to 'CCC+' from 'B-'.  The recovery rating on this
debt remains '4', though S&P now expects recovery to be at the low
end of the average (30%-50%) range in the event of payment
default.

"Our downgrade on New Millennium Holdco Inc. follows very weak
second-quarter operating results and negative reimbursement trends
that we expect will cause EBITDA to decline meaningfully below
fixed charges over the next two years," said S&P Global Ratings
credit analyst Shannan Murphy.  While S&P believes the company's
very substantial cash balance affords it an extended period of time
to try to improve operations, S&P's rating action incorporates its
belief that the company is unlikely to be able to support the
current level of debt over the long term without favorable
developments.

S&P's negative rating outlook reflects its belief that Millennium's
current debt load may not be sustainable given current
reimbursement dynamics in the company's core urine drug testing
business.  However, it also reflects S&P's view that the company's
substantial cash balances make a payment default or debt
restructuring unlikely in the next 12 months.

S&P could lower the rating if the company's cash burn accelerates,
leading S&P to question whether the company can continue to support
its current debt balances over the next 12 months.  S&P would
consider a lower rating if cash levels approached
$70 million, either due to a decline in realized revenues on a
per-sample basis by an incremental 15% from levels that already
represent a substantial reduction from prior years, or due to
litigation settlements.

S&P could raise the rating if it become convinced that Millennium
can sustainably generate around $65 million in EBITDA per year,
allowing the company to maintain a modest cash flow cushion after
interest expense, capital spending, and mandatory debt
amortization.  In S&P's view, this would require the company to
improve EBITDA margins by around 1,000 basis points from run-rate
levels, most likely through a combination of higher reimbursement
and cost cutting.



NOVABAY PHARMACEUTICALS: Regains Compliance with NYSE Requirements
------------------------------------------------------------------
NovaBay Pharmaceuticals, Inc., announced that it has regained
compliance with the NYSE MKT continued listing standards.

"Our NYSE listing is important as it creates a heightened profile
for our stock and improves our ability to attract high-quality
investors," said Mark M. Sieczkarek, NovaBay's chairman, president
and CEO.  "We are delighted to have executed on our plan to regain
compliance and to work with NYSE representatives in maintaining our
listing." On April 28, 2015, NovaBay received notice that the
Company was out of compliance with Section 1003(a) (i) of the NYSE
MKT Company Guide pertaining to shareholder equity requirements.
Since then, through a series of financings, the company has been
able to raise more than $30 million to regain compliance and
maintain its listing on the exchange.

"The recently announced $6 million of warrant exercises and the
previous $24 million that we raised over the past 18 months provide
us with a strong balance sheet and the financial stability to
maintain our liquidity," said Sieczkarek.  "The listing is
important to our longer-term growth and provides us with the needed
exposure to the public markets.  Funds from our recent financing
and the exercise of warrants were key in meeting the NYSE MKT
requirements and we thank our investors and Board members for their
ongoing confidence and financial support.  Our improved capital
structure will support our commercial activities aimed at growing
Avenova sales and we are increasingly confident in our ability to
reach positive adjusted cash flow from operations by the end of
December 2016."

NovaBay defines adjusted cash flow from operations as GAAP cash
flow from operations less changes in operating assets and
liabilities.

                   About NovaBay Pharmaceuticals

NovaBay Pharmaceuticals is a biopharmaceutical company focusing on
the commercialization of prescription Avenova lid and lash hygiene
for the domestic eye care market.  Avenova is formulated with
Neutrox which is cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration
(FDA) as a 510(k) medical device.  Neutrox is NovaBay's proprietary
pure hypochlorous acid.  Laboratory tests show that hypochlorous
acid has potent antimicrobial activity in solution yet is non-toxic
to mammalian cells and it also neutralizes bacterial toxins.
Avenova is marketed to optometrists and ophthalmologists throughout
the U.S. by NovaBay's direct medical salesforce.  It is accessible
from more than 90% of retail pharmacies in the U.S. through
agreements with McKesson Corporation, Cardinal Health and
AmeriSource Bergen.

NovaBay reported a net loss of $18.97 million in 2015, a net loss
of $15.19 million in 2014 and a net loss of $16.04 million in
2013.

As of June 30, 2016, NovaBay had $7 million in total assets, $9.47
million in total liabilities and a total stockholders' deficit of
$2.46 million.

OUM & Co. LLP in San Francisco, California, audited the
consolidated balance sheets of NovaBay Pharmaceuticals, Inc. as of
December 31, 2015 and 2014 and the related consolidated statements
of operations and comprehensive loss, stockholders' equity, and
cash flows for each of the three years in the period ended December
31, 2015.  The firm noted that the Company has suffered recurring
losses and negative cash flows from operations and has a
stockholders' deficit, all of which raise substantial doubt about
its ability to continue as a going concern.


OAK ROCK: Committee's Omnibus Motion in Limine Partially Granted
----------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Robert E. Grossman of the United States Bankruptcy Court for
the Eastern District of New York partially granted, and otherwise
denied, the omnibus motion in limine filed by the Official
Committee of Unsecured Creditors in the adversary proceeding
captioned THE OFFICIAL COMMITTEE OF UNSECURED CREDITORS on behalf
of the bankruptcy estate of OAK ROCK FINANCIAL, LLC, Plaintiff, v.
ISRAEL DISCOUNT BANK OF NEW YORK, Individually and as Agent Under
Certain Credit Agreements, BANK LEUMI USA, BANK HAPOALIM B.M. and
CAPITAL ONE, N.A., Defendants. ISRAEL DISCOUNT BANK OF NEW YORK,
Individually and as Agent Under Certain Credit Agreements, BANK
LEUMI USA, BANK HAPOALIM B.M. and CAPITAL ONE, N.A., Third-Party
Plaintiff, v. JAMES N. AGALS, et. al, Third-Party Defendants, Adv.
Pro. No. 8-14-08231-reg (Bankr. E.D.N.Y.).

The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors filed an omnibus
motion in limine.  The motion arose in anticipation of trial in an
adversary proceeding brought by the Committee seeking, inter alia,
to avoid certain transactions between the debtor Oak Rock
Financial, LLC, and Israel Discount Bank of New York (IDB), Bank
Leumi USA, Bank Hampoalim B.M. and Capital One, N.A. (together with
IDB, "the Lenders") as preferential transfers and/or fraudulent
conveyances.

The Motion sought to preclude the Lenders from calling certain
witnesses, introducing documents, raising objections and advancing
theories at trial scheduled to commence on November 1, 2016.  The
Lenders opposed the Motion but have agreed to amend their witness
lists by omitting certain witnesses and indicating whom the Lenders
"expect" to call and those whom the Lenders "may" call.
Additionally the Lenders expected to stipulate to the entry into
the record of many of the contested documents.

Judge Grossman pointed out that, as this is a bench trial without a
jury, the need for an advance ruling to exclude evidence has been
deemed by some courts as superfluous and unnecessary.  Moreover,
given the contentious nature of the adversary proceeding, the judge
apprehended the parties will ask the Court to revisit any rulings
it might make on the Motion, during the trial.  

In addition to these concerns, Judge Grossman also stated that
granting certain portions of the Motion would undercut the Lenders'
legal theories before the Court can fully assess the issues
presented.  The judge explained that it is inappropriate to use a
motion in limine to pre-determine theories of the case or to
preclude parties from presenting evidence on underdeveloped issues
in advance of the trial, but rather, these types of questions
should be addressed during trial, where evidence will be offered,
objected to and ruled on in an appropriate factual context.  The
judge thus held that the Lenders shall not be precluded from
calling certain witnesses, introducing documents, raising
objections and advancing theories which could prevent the Lenders
from taking positions and strategies they have a right to take
during the trial.

Judge Grossman granted the Motion solely to the extent that the
parties may not challenge the authenticity of, or the applicability
of Federal Rule of Evidence 803(6) to (i) the documents produced by
the Lenders bearing their letterhead or other identifying marks,
and (ii) the documents produced by by IDB's Field Examiner, KDMB
Lender Advisory Services LLC, with their letterhead or other
identifying marks.  The Motion was denied as to the remainder.

The bankruptcy case is In re: OAK ROCK FINANCIAL, LLC, Chapter 11,
Debtor, Case No. 8-13-72251-reg (Bankr. E.D.N.Y.).

OPELOUSAS GENERAL: S&P Lowers Rating on 2003 Hospital Bonds to BB+
------------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings lowered its long-term rating on Opelousas
General Hospital Authority, La.'s series 2003 hospital revenue
bonds issued for Opelousas General Hospital, doing business as
Opelousas General Health System (OGHS), to 'BB+' from 'BBB-'.  The
outlook is stable.

"The lower rating reflects our opinion of OGHS' vulnerable
enterprise profile, highlighted by what we consider low market
share due to substantial outmigration for tertiary services to
nearby competitors, and declining admissions through fiscal 2016,"
said S&P Global Ratings credit analyst Charlene Butterfield.  "We
believe our expectation of further improvement in the financial
profile provides stability at the current rating."

S&P Global Ratings' assessed OGHS's enterprise as vulnerable
characterized by low market share in a small primary service area
with weak economic fundamentals, and its financial profile as
adequate characterized by a history of weak financial performance
that has improved in fiscal 2016 and through the first quarter of
fiscal 2017 ended Sept. 30, 2016.  OGHS's low leverage and solid
debt service coverage partially offset its low unrestricted
reserves and high average age of plant.

S&P Global Ratings believes the organization will continue to face
operational challenges given its ongoing decline in utilization,
but it expects management's recent measures to reduce expenses,
generally through employee cuts and lowering supply costs, to help
improve operations in the coming year.  Additionally, the rating
service believes that management's efforts to recruit additional
physicians could lead to volume growth in the next year.

Combined, S&P Global Ratings believes these credit factors lead to
an initial indicative rating of 'bb'.  As S&P's criteria indicates,
the final rating can be within one notch on the indicative credit
level.  "In our opinion, OGHS' light debt levels, debt burden and
solid coverage, and sound unrestricted reserves compared with debt,
compare favorably with peers and a final rating of 'BB+'," Ms.
Butterfield said.

PERFORMANCE SPORTS: Has Asset Purchase Pact with 9938982 Canada
---------------------------------------------------------------
In an amended Schedule 13D filed with the Securities and Exchange
Commission, Sagard Capital Partners, L.P., Sagard Capital Partners
GP, Inc., Sagard Capital Partners Management Corp., disclosed that
as of Oct. 31, 2016, they beneficially own 7,721,599 common shares,
no par value, of Performance Sports Group Ltd. which represents
16.9 percent of the shares outstanding.

Sagard Holdings Inc. and 9938982 Canada Inc., both members of the
Group, also reported non-ownership of shares of Performance Sports'
common stock.

On Oct. 31, 2016, Performance Sports and all of its U.S. and
Canadian subsidiaries and 9938982 Canada (the "Purchaser") entered
into an Asset Purchase Agreement, pursuant to which the Purchaser
has agreed to (i) purchase and assume substantially all of the
properties, rights, interests and other assets of the Debtors and
(ii) assume, become responsible for, and discharge and perform when
due certain of the liabilities of the Debtors, in each case subject
to the terms and conditions set forth in the APA, and for aggregate
consideration based on a base purchase price of US$575,000,000.
The foregoing would be accomplished through the sale, transfer and
assignment of the Assets by the Debtors to the Purchaser in a sale
undertaken pursuant to section 363 of the Bankruptcy Code and
Section 36 of the CCAA.  As part of that purchase, certain
executory contracts and unexpired leases of the Debtors will be
assumed by and assigned to the Purchaser (or certain of its
designated subsidiaries) pursuant to section 365 of the Bankruptcy
Code.  The Assets, contracts and leases would be acquired free and
clear of any and all liens or claims, other than liens permitted
and liabilities expressly assumed by the Purchaser (or certain of
its designated subsidiaries) under the APA.

In connection with the APA, it is expected that the Debtors will
concurrently conduct a competitive process pursuant to bidding
procedures to be approved by the Courts, seeking higher and better
qualified bids for a sale at auction of all or substantially all of
the Debtors' assets pursuant to Section 363 of the Bankruptcy Code
and Section 36 of the CCAA.  Upon approval by the Courts, the
bidding procedures will provide that the Purchaser is the "stalking
horse" bidder for the Assets and that the Debtors will pay a
break-up fee to the Purchaser equal to US$20,125,000 upon the
consummation of an alternate transaction involving the sale of
substantially all of the Assets to any person or entity other than
the Purchaser or in certain other circumstances where the
Transactions are not consummated.  The APA, subject to the approval
of the Courts, also provides for reimbursement of certain expenses
incurred by the Purchaser in connection with the APA.

The APA is subject to a number of closing conditions, including,
among others, (i) the approval of the Courts, (ii) the accuracy of
representations and warranties of the parties, and (iii) compliance
in all material respects with the obligations set forth in the
APA.

The APA will terminate following the occurrence of certain
termination events set forth in the APA, subject to, in most cases,
a cure period, unless the Termination Event is waived by the
applicable Parties.

The APA requires that the Purchaser deposit a "good faith deposit"
of US$28,750,000 by wire transfer of immediately available funds to
be held in escrow in accordance with the terms of an escrow
agreement.

The APA also includes certain customary representations and
warranties of the parties, as well as a covenant by the Debtors to
use commercially reasonable efforts to operate in the ordinary
course of business, taking into account their status as
debtors-in-possession.

                Debtor-in-Possession Financing

The Company has disclosed that Bank of America, N.A. and certain
other of its existing asset-based lenders have agreed to arrange
debtor-in-possession financing to support the Debtors' continued
operations during the pendency of the Chapter 11 cases.

The Purchaser has agreed to arrange debtor-in-possession financing
to support the Issuer's continued operations during the pendency of
the Chapter 11 cases and the CCAA Proceedings.  The Term DIP
Financing is evidenced by a Superpriority Debtor-in-Possession
Credit Agreement providing for a secured multiple draw term loan
credit facility of up to US$361,300,000, with US$30,000,000
available to fund working capital needs and US$331,300,000
available to repay in full the Issuer's existing pre-petition term
loan facility.  The Term DIP Financing is subject to approval by
the Courts and borrowings thereunder are subject to entry of final
orders by the Courts.

The maturity date of the Term DIP Facility is defined as the
earliest of: (a) 120 days from the Petition Date; (b) the
consummation of the APA or other sale of all or substantially all
of the assets of the Debtors; (c) the occurrence of an event of
default specified under the Term DIP Facility and acceleration of
all term loans and cancellation of commitments thereunder; (d)
three business days after the Petition Date if an interim order
approving the Term DIP Facility is not entered by the Courts; and
(e) 30 days after the Petition Date if a final order approving the
Term DIP Financing has not been entered by the Courts.  Interest on
the Term DIP Facility is payable in cash at a per annum rate equal
to 8%.  Subject to the entry of a final order approving the Term
DIP Facility and limited carve-outs, the Issuer is expected to draw
on the Term DIP Facility to repay the Issuer’s prepetition
secured term loans and, in connection therewith, the Issuer’s
obligations under the Term DIP Facility will be secured by all
pre-petition and post-petition assets of the Issuer.

The obligations of the Issuer under the Term DIP Facility are
guaranteed by each of the U.S. and Canadian subsidiaries of the
Issuer and secured by all or substantially all the assets of the
Issuer and the Guarantors.

                   Equity Commitment Letter

As required by Section 3.6 of the APA, the Purchaser has delivered
to the Issuer a copy of an Equity Commitment Letter with the
Purchaser pursuant to which Sagard Holdings and Fairfax have
committed to provide the Purchaser with equity financing of up to
US$475,000,000 in the aggregate for the transactions contemplated
by the APA.  Pursuant to the Equity Commitment Letter, subject to
the terms and conditions set forth therein, each Backstop Party has
committed, severally and not jointly, to contribute cash to the
Purchaser up to the respective maximum dollar amounts set forth in
the Equity Commitment Letter, the aggregate amount of which would
be available to enable the Purchaser to fund (i) the Purchaser's
commitment to advance the Term DIP Financing and (ii) the
Purchaser's performance of its obligations under the APA (including
payment of the Deposit).

             Exit Debt Financing Commitment Letter

As required by Section 3.6 of the APA, the Purchaser has delivered
to the Issuer a copy of a Commitment Letter pursuant to which
Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated, JPMorgan Chase
Bank, N.A. and Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, and Bank of
America, JPMorgan, Wells Fargo, Royal Bank of Canada and The Bank
of Nova Scotia have committed to the Purchaser, subject to the
conditions set forth therein, to provide debt financing in order to
(x) finance the transactions contemplated by the APA, (y) issue
standby or commercial letters of credit, and (z) finance ongoing
working capital needs and general corporate purposes after the
consummation of the transactions contemplated by the APA, so long
as the transactions contemplated by the APA are consummated
successfully with 9938982 Canada (as opposed to any competing
bidder).

                       Work Fee Letter

The Issuer has entered into a Work Fee Letter with 9938982 Canada
in connection with the possible pursuit of strategic alternatives
with the Issuer.  Pursuant to the Work Fee Letter, the Issuer paid
a fee of $2,500,000 to the Reporting Persons in consideration of
work performed in investigating various strategic alternatives with
the Issuer, including any future due diligence, analyses,
negotiation, preparation and execution of term sheets and final
commitments relating to the foregoing, as applicable.  If the
Break-Up Fee becomes due and payable under the APA, the Break-Up
Fee payable to 9938982 Canada shall be reduced by the amount of the
Work Fee actually paid to 9938982 Canada.  In addition, the Work
Fee Letter provides that (i) if any Breakup Fee is not due and
payable in accordance with the APA, and 9938982 Canada consummates
the transaction contemplated by the APA, then, contemporaneous with
closing of such transaction, 9938982 Canada is obligated to refund
the Work Fee to the Issuer; or (ii) if any Breakup Fee is not due
and payable in accordance with the APA, and 9938982 Canada does not
consummate the transaction contemplated by the APA by reason of its
breach of the APA, then the amount of any deposit made by 9938982
Canada in connection with the APA shall be reduced
dollar-for-dollar by the amount of the Work Fee and that same
amount shall be released by the applicable deposit escrow agent to
the Issuer.

PERFORMANCE SPORTS: Moody's Lowers PDR to D-PD on Chap. 11 Filing
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded Performance Sports Group's
(PSG) Probability of Default Rating (PDR) to D-PD from Caa2-PD
following the company's Chapter 11 filing on Oct. 31, 2016.
Performance Sports Group's other ratings were affirmed.  The rating
outlook remains negative.

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

Rating downgraded:

  Probability of Default Rating, Downgraded to D-PD from Caa2-PD;

Ratings affirmed:

  Corporate Family Rating at Caa2;
  Term Loan B rating at Caa3 (LGD4);
  Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating at SGL-4

                         RATINGS RATIONALE

The downgrade of the PDR to D-PD reflects Performance Sports
Group's filing under Chapter 11 in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in
Wilmington, Delaware and a similar court process in Canada on Oct.
31, 2016.  The bank waiver for the company to file its Audited
Financial Statements for the year ended May 31, 2016, (which were
originally due on August 15, 2016) expired on Oct. 28, 2016.

As part of the bankruptcy filing, Fairfax Financial Holdings Ltd.
and Sagard Capital Partners have entered into a "Purchase
Agreement" with the company.  Pursuant to the agreement, Fairfax
and Sagard would acquire substantially all of the assets of the
Company and its North American subsidiaries for $575 million,
assume related operating liabilities and serve as a "stalking
horse" bidder through the bankruptcy process.  The Purchase
Agreement sets the floor, or minimum acceptable bid during the
bankruptcy proceedings.  Fairfax and Sagard have also agreed to
provide $386 million of debtor-in-possession financing. As of
February, Performance Sports Group owed $331 under the term loan
and $119 million on its ABL revolver.

The affirmation of the Caa2 Corporate Family Rating and Caa3 term
loan rating reflects the expected strong recovery in the bankruptcy
proceedings, while at the same time recognizing the increased
uncertainty that any bankruptcy filing entails.

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

Headquartered in Exeter, New Hampshire, Performance Sports Group
Ltd., designs, manufactures and distributes high performance sports
equipment for ice hockey, roller hockey, lacrosse, baseball,
softball and related apparel and accessories.  Pro forma revenue
approximated $600 million for the twelve months ended February
2016.


PETROQUEST ENERGY: Reports $23.3 Million Net Loss in Third Quarter
------------------------------------------------------------------
PetroQuest Energy, Inc. reported a loss available to common
stockholders of $23.30 million on $17.09 million of oil and gas
sales for the three months ended Sept. 30, 2016, compared to a loss
available to common stockholders of $51.91 million on $26.87
million of oil and gas sales for the three months ended Sept. 30,
2015.

For the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2016, the Company reported a
loss available to common stockholders of $86.58 million on $50.23
million of oil and gas sales compared to a loss available to common
stockholders of $235.2 million on $92.87 million of oil and gas
sales for the same period in 2015.

As of Sept. 30, 2016, PetroQuest had $174.4 million in total
assets, $411.2 million in total liabilities and a total
stockholders' deficit of $236.8 million.

The losses during the quarter and nine months ended Sept. 30, 2016,
and Sept. 30, 2015, included non-cash ceiling test write-downs
totaling $8.665 million and $40.30 million, respectively, and
$40.21 million and $214.6 million, respectively.

Net cash flow provided by (used in) operating activities totaled
($25.67 million) and $18.35 million during the third quarters of
2016 and 2015, respectively.  Discretionary cash flow for the third
quarter of 2016 was $207,000, as compared to $4.990 million for the
comparable 2015 period.  Net cash flow provided by (used in)
operating activities totaled ($51.74 million) and $23.98 million
during the first nine months of 2016 and 2015, respectively.  For
the first nine months of 2016, discretionary cash flow was ($2.994
million), as compared to $22.85 million for the first nine months
of 2015.

Production for the third quarter of 2016 was 5.2 Bcfe, compared to
7.4 Bcfe for the comparable period of 2015.  For the first nine
months of 2016, production was 18.9 Bcfe, compared to 27.5 Bcfe for
the comparable period of 2015.  The reduction in production volumes
during the 2016 periods is primarily attributable to the sale of
the Company's Arkoma assets in 2015, as well as the continued lack
of capital expenditures.

Stated on an Mcfe basis, unit prices including the effects of
hedges for the third quarter of 2016 were $3.27 per Mcfe, as
compared to $3.62 per Mcfe in the third quarter of 2015.  For the
first nine months of 2016, unit prices including the effects of
hedges, were $2.66 per Mcfe, as compared to $3.38 per Mcfe for the
first nine months of 2015.

Oil and gas sales during the third quarter of 2016 were $17.09
million, as compared to $26.87 million in the third quarter of
2015.  For the first nine months of 2016, oil and gas sales were
$50.24 million as compared to oil and gas sales of $92.87 million
for the first nine months of 2015.

Lease operating expenses for the third quarter of 2016 decreased to
$6.857 million as compared to $10.07 million in the third quarter
of 2015.  Lease operating expenses decreased during the three
months ended Sept. 30, 2016, primarily as a result of the Company's
2015 Arkoma divestiture.  LOE per Mcfe was $1.31 for the third
quarter of 2016, as compared to $1.35 in the third quarter of 2015.
For the first nine months of 2016, lease operating expenses were
$1.16 per Mcfe compared to $1.17 per Mcfe in the first nine months
of 2015.

Depreciation, depletion and amortization on oil and gas properties
for the third quarter of 2016 was $1.12 per Mcfe, as compared to
$1.79 per Mcfe in the third quarter of 2015.  For the first nine
months of 2016, DD&A on oil and gas properties was $1.21 per Mcfe
compared to $1.88 per Mcfe for the comparable period of 2015. The
decrease in the per unit DD&A rate during the 2016 periods is
primarily the result of recent ceiling test write-downs.

Interest expense for the third quarter of 2016 decreased to $7.737
million, as compared to $8.526 million in the third quarter of
2015.  Interest expense for the third quarter of 2016 included the
non-cash write-off of approximately $1 million of deferred
financing costs.  During the three month period ended Sept. 30,
2016, capitalized interest totaled $167,000, as compared to
$724,000 during the 2015 period. For the first nine months of 2016,
interest expense was $22.50 million , compared to $24.996 million
for the comparable period of 2015.  During the nine month period
ended Sept. 30, 2016, capitalized interest totaled $722,000, as
compared to $4.100 million during the 2015 period.  The decrease in
interest expense during the 2016 periods is primarily attributable
a lower debt balance after the completion of the Company's debt
exchange in February 2016 as well as the repayment of the Company's
bank debt in June 2015.

General and administrative expenses during the quarter and nine
months ended Sept. 30, 2016, totaled $8.827 million and $21.297
million, respectively, as compared to $4.686 million and $16.54
million during the comparable 2015 periods.  Capitalized general
and administrative expenses during the quarter and nine months
ended September 30, 2016 totaled $1.268 million, and $4.347
million, respectively, as compared to expenses of $1.926 million
and $6.522 million during the comparable 2015 periods.  General and
administrative expenses for the three and the nine month 2016
periods included approximately $5.300 million and $10.10 million in
expenses, respectively, related to the Company's two debt exchanges
in 2016.

East Texas Joint Venture

The Company continues to make progress toward a joint venture in
the Cotton Valley and expects to close the joint venture and spud
the first well thereunder before the end of 2016.  During the first
quarter of 2016, the Company sold a portion of its 100% owned 6,400
gross acre Cotton Valley position to a potential joint venture
partner for $7 million.  The Company expects to re-acquire this
acreage for $5 million prior to closing the joint venture.

Thunder Bayou Update

In the Gulf Coast, the Company's Thunder Bayou well is currently
flowing from the initial completion in the lower section of the
Cris R-2 formation (48 net feet of pay) at approximately 18 MMcfe/d
(NRI-37%).  The daily production rate of the well continues to
decline as expected.  As a result, the Company's production
guidance for the fourth quarter of 2016 assumes the well will be
shut-in for the month of December due to the Company's planned
recompletion into the upper section of the Cris R-2 formation (154
net feet of pay).  Thunder Bayou is forecasted to be back online in
January 2017.

Liquidity Update

The Company recently enhanced its liquidity position through a new
$50 million multidraw term loan and the issuance of debt in the
Company's September 2016 debt exchange that includes a
payment-in-kind feature that is expected to provide approximately
$33 million of cash interest savings over the next 18 months.
During the third quarter of 2016, the Company's cash balance
declined from approximately $69 million at June 30, 2016 to
approximately $34 million at Sept. 30, 2016.  The primary uses of
cash during the third quarter of 2016 were $21 million for accrued
interest and fees related to the debt exchange, $4 million in
capital expenditures and payments to reduce accounts payable to
vendors. In October 2016, the Company borrowed $10 million under
its multidraw term loan for additional working capital needs
including payments to reduce accounts payable to vendors.

Management's Comment

"The debt exchange completed in September 2016 has resulted in a
significant opportunity for our team, on behalf of all of our
stakeholders, to capitalize on the value of our attractive
properties in East Texas and Gulf Coast as commodity prices
continue to improve," said Charles T. Goodson, chairman, chief
executive officer and president.  "The planned recompletion of our
Thunder Bayou well should be a near-term catalyst of increased cash
flow in the first quarter of 2017 and beyond.  We expect to
finalize our East Texas joint venture in the coming weeks, on terms
attractive to both the investors and the Company, and expect to
spud our first well before year-end.  We look forward to 2017 as a
year of renewed and significant growth in production, with all
capital expenditures expected to be funded by cash flow."

                        About PetroQuest

PetroQuest Energy, Inc., is an independent energy company engaged
in the exploration, development, acquisition and production of oil
and natural gas reserves in East Texas, Oklahoma, South Louisiana
and the shallow waters of the Gulf of Mexico.  PetroQuest's common
stock trades on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker PQ.

In its quarterly report for the period ending June 30, 2016, the
Company stated, "Our substantially decreased level of capital
spending has had and is expected to continue to have a negative
impact on our production and cash flow from operating activities.
We expect production to continue to decline throughout 2016 and
when combined with current commodity prices and our existing cost
structure, including 10% interest expense on the $280 million of
debt represented by our 2017 Notes and 2021 Notes, we believe that
we will continue to incur significant losses and negative cash flow
from operating activities for the remainder of 2016.  In addition,
$136 million of the indebtedness represented by our 2017 Notes will
mature on September 1, 2017 and would be reflected as a current
liability on our September 30, 2016 balance sheet if not refinanced
prior to the filing of our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the
quarterly period ended September 30, 2016, which would raise
substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going
concern," the Company stated in its quarterly report for the period
ended June 30, 2016.

"We are evaluating additional sources of liquidity including asset
sales, joint ventures, exchange offers and alternative financing
arrangements to replace the Credit Agreement, but there is no
assurance that these sources will provide sufficient, if any,
incremental liquidity.  We are also evaluating various options to
address the September 2017 maturity of our 2017 Notes as well as
assessing our overall capital structure.  These options include
additional public or private exchanges of 2017 Notes for new
secured debt and/or common stock, refinancing the 2017 Notes with
unsecured debt and/or common stock as well as a broader
restructuring of our 2017 and 2021 Notes.  To assist the Board of
Directors and management team in evaluating these options, we have
retained Jefferies LLC and Seaport Global as our financial advisors
and Porter Hedges LLP as our legal advisor.  There is no assurance
that any refinancing or debt or equity restructuring will be
possible or that additional equity or debt financing can be
obtained on acceptable terms, if at all.  If we are unable to
improve our liquidity position, and refinance or restructure our
debt, we may seek bankruptcy protection to continue our efforts to
restructure our business and capital structure.  As a part of that
process, we may have to liquidate our assets and may receive less
than the value at which those assets are carried on our
consolidated financial statements."

PetroQuest Energy carries a 'Caa3' corporate family rating from
Moody's Investors Service.

As reported by the TCR on Oct. 26, 2016, S&P Global Ratings raised
the corporate credit rating on Lafayette, La.-based E&P company
PetroQuest Energy Inc. to 'CCC' from 'SD'.  "The upgrade reflects
our reassessment of the company's corporate credit rating following
the exchange of the majority of its outstanding 10% senior
unsecured notes due September 2017 at par," said S&P Global Ratings
credit analyst Daniel Krauss.  The negative outlook reflects the
company's current debt leverage levels, which S&P views to be
unsustainable, as well as its less than adequate liquidity
position.


PICO HOLDINGS: RPN Says Hart, Bogue in Suspicious Real Estate Deal
------------------------------------------------------------------
PICO Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq:PICO), based in La Jolla, Calif., is a
diversified holding company reporting recurring losses since 2008.
PICO owns 57% of UCP, Inc. (NYSE:UCP), 100% of Vidler Water
Company, Inc., a securities portfolio and various interests in
small businesses. PICO has $662 million in assets and $426 million
in shareholder equity. Central Square Management LLC and River Road
Asset Management LLC collectively own more than 14% of PICO. Other
activists at http://ReformPICONow.com/(RPN) have taken to the
Internet to advance the shareholder cause.

The bloggers have once again uncovered evidence that may indicate
wrongdoing on the part of PICO CEO John Hart and UCP CEO Dustin
Bogue.

The bloggers wrote, "We believe that John Hart and Dustin Bogue
misappropriated PICO Holdings' shareholder funds for the personal
benefit of Mr. Bogue and to the detriment of PICO shareowners. We
believe that what you are about to read amounts to willful
misconduct that is materially and demonstrably injurious to PICO
Holdings.

"We call on the Boards of both PICO and UCP to conduct a formal
investigation into this matter, complete with independent forensic
experts. We call on both Boards to pursue truth expeditiously and
to communicate that truth to shareowners.

"A few months back, we analyzed UCP's Registration Statement filed
with the SEC on July 8, 2013. On page 180, we noticed something
peculiar:

                     Release from Guarantee

"In 2012, we acquired 44 finished lots located in Fresno County in
a project known as Red Hawk from a Fresno-based bank, or the Red
Hawk Lender. The Red Hawk Lender acquired Red Hawk through a
foreclosure proceeding related to a $9.4 million land acquisition
and development loan it made to the prior owner of Red Hawk. The
previous majority owners of Red Hawk, including Dustin L. Bogue,
our President and Chief Executive Officer, had each personally
guaranteed the full amount of the loan from the Red Hawk Lender. We
acquired Red Hawk in an open market transaction conducted by the
Red Hawk Lender. In connection with our acquisition of Red Hawk,
the Red Hawk Lender released Mr. Bogue and the other guarantors
from any and all liability relating to their personal guarantees."

The bloggers investigated and discovered a lawsuit related to the
Red Hawk Transaction. "The plaintiff, or the 'Red Hawk Lender,' is
Premier Valley Bank. Mr. Bogue is one of several Defendants. The
case number is 110-CV-176515.  The case was filed in the Superior
Court of Fresno in California.

The story begins in 2006. Mr. Bogue, Steven H. Costa, James W.
Hoey, Debra J. Hoey, JS Land Company, Union Community Builders LLC,
Union Community Holdings LLC, were principals in Red Hawk Community
Partners, LLC, which owned the Red Hawk Community property,
comprised of 45 unfinished lots at 12517 East Ashlan Avenue, in
Sanger, California.

Premier Valley Bank underwrote the Defendants, including Mr. Bogue,
a construction and development loan for $9.4 million to develop and
sell the 45 unfinished lots of the Red Hawk Community. The loan was
initiated on July 25, 2006 with a two-year term, to be repaid on
July 25, 2008.

The Defendants, including Mr. Bogue, collateralized the loan by
pledging the Red Hawk Property and providing unlimited personal
guarantees. The Red Hawk Community also served as collateral.  

A December 4, 2009 appraisal indicated a significant decline in the
value of the Red Hawk Community to $4,430,000, which was $1,935,000
below the minimum value established by the Loan Agreement. Craig E.
Sandall, Vice President of Premier Valley Bank, stated that the
loan was placed in default. Premier Valley Bank started the
foreclosure process on the Red Hawk Construction Deed of Trust.

The Defendants, including Mr. Bogue, failed to cure the default. In
February 2010, Premier Valley Bank sued the Defendants, including
Mr. Bogue, for Breach of Contract and Specific Performance. Premier
Valley Bank sought $1,935,000 in damages plus attorney's fees and
other costs. David J. Weiland, Esq., of Dowling, Aaron & Keeler,
Inc., represented Premier Valley Bank.

Premier Valley Bank foreclosed on the Red Hawk Community and
subsequently purchased it at the foreclosure sale with a credit bid
of $3.6 million. Premier Valley Bank was now the owner of the Red
Hawk Community.

In July 2011, the Honorable Peter H. Kirwan, set a jury trial date
for January 9, 2012. The trial was expected to last 4-5 days. The
remaining Defendants, including Mr. Bogue, conducted discovery and
prepared for trial. Simultaneously, the parties engaged in
alternative dispute resolution, specifically mediation.

In November 2011, at the request of Mr. Weiland, attorney for
Premier Valley Bank, Judge Kirwan vacated the trial date, as Mr.
Bogue and Premier Valley Bank were making progress towards a
settlement.

On July 26, 2012, the transaction in question took place. Premier
Valley Bank sold the Red Hawk Community to BMCH LLC California, a
subsidiary of UCP, which was then a subsidiary of PICO. The price
and other terms were not disclosed.

According to the bloggers, "We procured this document with the help
of expert real estate attorney, Jean Heinz, Esq., of Heinz &
Feinberg, in San Diego, California. We asked Mrs. Feinberg if the
price and terms of the transaction could be determined through
other public documents.  She responded in the negative, "They were
very careful -- see how the transfer tax is not disclosed."

The bloggers find the evidence suspicious and demand an
investigation of the Red Hawk transaction. They worry that PICO
bailed out Mr. Bogue from his underwater personal guarantee
attached to the Red Hawk Loan. "Banks are not in the business of
giving away assets for free. We believe that Premier Valley Bank
made Mr. Hart and PICO pay for the release of Mr. Bogue from the
guarantee, thereby causing PICO to overpay for the Red Hawk
Community. This would be a misappropriation of PICO's shareholder
funds.

The value of the Red Hawk Community deteriorated considerably from
the 2009 appraisal presented in the case file, to when PICO
purchased it in 2012. In 2009, the Red Hawk Community was appraised
at $4.43 million. Residential real estate prices in Sanger dropped
30% between 2009 and 2012, so the Red Hawk Community would would
have been worth only $3.1 million in 2012. If PICO and Mr. Hart
paid more than $3.1 million in 2012, then the Red Hawk Community
was purchased at a considerable premium to market.

The Red Hawk Community has probably destroyed millions of dollars
in value for PICO and UCP shareholders; 35 homes have been sold
between 2013 and 2016 -- or about one per month. That is an abysmal
absorption rate, as the industry average is over 2 per month -- or
double Red Hawk's metric. In order to earn an economic profit, 44
homes should be sold in about 2 years -- UCP has only sold 35 homes
in 3 years!"

The bloggers want to know the answer to one important question:
"How much did PICO pay for the Red Hawk Community in 2012?

Mr. Hart had a fiduciary duty to PICO shareholders to allocate
capital at acceptable returns. He had a fiduciary duty to NOT
purchase the Red Hawk Community if it could not produce an adequate
return for owners.

Is Mr. Bogue fit to be CEO and a Director of a publicly-traded
homebuilder, given that he went bust on a large real estate deal
and, like a child running to mommy, got bailed out by a
publicly-traded company with deep pockets?

"We call on the PICO Directors to conduct an investigation of the
Red Hawk Community transaction, complete with independent forensic
experts. We call on the PICO Directors to expeditiously seek the
truth and communicate results frequently and clearly to the owners
of the business."


PIONEER HEALTH: Selling Oneida Assets to Rennova for $600,000
-------------------------------------------------------------
Pioneer Health Services, Inc., asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the Southern District of Mississippi to authorize the sale of
substantially all assets of Pioneer Health Services of Oneida, Inc.
outside the ordinary course of business to Rennova Health, Inc. for
$600,000, subject to overbid.

Debtor Oneida purchased its facility and operated it for a period
of time after it was acquired. Despite implementing a range of
strategic initiatives, Oneida continued to generate significant
monthly operating losses. After continuing to lose money,
post-petition, of unacceptable amounts, Pioneer made the decision
to close the hospital effective June 26, 2016.  

Prior to closing the hospital, Pioneer held extensive negotiations
with multiple parties about an accelerated sale at a discounted
valuation in order to keep the hospital open. Despite these
efforts, Pioneer was unable to find a Buyer to assume control of
the hospital and it closed on June 26, 2016.

SOLIC Capital Advisors, upon being retained as financial advisor on
July 1, 2016, began compiling an electronic dataroom for Oneida
containing historical operating, financial, legal and regulatory
facility related information. During July and August, SOLIC granted
dataroom access to 13 parties expressing initial interest in
acquiring the hospital and reopening it. SOLIC set a preliminary
bid deadline of August 12 for interested parties to submit a
proposal with an asset purchase agreement.

On August 12, SOLIC received the proposal from Rennova as well as
one other proposal at a substantially lower offer. During the
period when SOLIC was negotiating with Rennova, SOLIC received a
proposal from another party that was substantially similar to
Rennova, SOLIC then begin to negotiate an asset purchase agreement
with both Rennova and the other party; however over the past three
weeks the other party has failed to respond to the comments SOLIC
and Pioneer provided on their Asset Purchase Agreement ("APA").

A copy of the APA attached to the Motion is available for free at:

    http://bankrupt.com/misc/Pioneer_Health_1193_Sales.pdf

The salient terms of the APA are:

          a. Purchased Assets: All assets of the Sellers, wherever
located and whether or not carried or reflected on the books and
records of Sellers, excluding the "Excluded Assets."

          b. Purchase Price: $600,000

          c. Purchaser: Rennova Health, Inc.

          d. Deposit: 10% of the purchase price

          e. Terms: The sale of the assets will be free and clear
of all Interests of any kind or nature whatsoever.

          f. Assumption of Liabilities: Purchaser will not assume
or otherwise be responsible for any liabilities of Sellers, except
that from and after the Closing, the Purchaser will assume as and
when due, the "Assumed Liabilities."

          g. Assigned Contracts and Cure Amounts: Sellers will
assign to Purchaser, and Purchaser will assume from Sellers, the
Assigned Contracts. The cure amounts, if any, as determined by the
Bankruptcy Court, necessary to allow assumption and assignment will
be paid by Purchaser at closing.

The Debtor and SOLIC will continue to market the Purchased Assets
and conduct a sale process in compliance with a Bid Procedures
Order.

The Debtor agrees to these Bid Procedures and will use its best
efforts to cause such procedures to be adhered to and, if
necessary, approved by the Bankruptcy Court:

          a. Initial minimum overbid by a Competing Bid of $100,000
(the Purchaser Termination Fee of $50,000 plus the incremented bid
of $50,000);

          b. incremented bids by Qualified Bidders of no less than
$50,000;

          c. right of Purchaser to credit bid its Purchaser
Termination Fee;

          d. payment of the Purchaser Termination Fee, if
applicable, in accordance with Section 6.5 of the APA;

          e. deadline to qualify Competing Bids is Nov. 2, 2016;

          f. conducting an auction in the event of any qualified
Competing Bids no later than Nov. 15, 2016; and

          g. commencement of a hearing before the Bankruptcy Court
to approve the transaction and seek entry of Sale Order no later
than Nov. 30, 2016.

At this time, the Rennova proposal represent the highest bid
received with both Pioneer and Rennova in mutual agreement on the
terms of the APA. The Rennova proposal represent the best
opportunity for hospital to reopen in the near term while
generating funds to pay administrative expenses resulting from the
hospital's closure. The Debtor requests that its representative
(Scott Phillips, its Chief Restructuring Officer) be authorized and
directed to consummate the transaction pursuant to and in
accordance with the terms and conditions of the APA.

The "Assigned Contracts" assumed by the Debtor and assigned to the
Purchaser at Closing, pursuant to an Order granting the Motion,
will consist of those Assigned Contracts listed in the APA.
Pursuant to Sections 105(a) and 365 of the Bankruptcy Code, and
subject to and conditioned upon the further terms of any Order
approving the Motion and the Closing of the Transaction, the Debtor
requests the assumption and assignment to the Purchaser on the
terms set forth in the APA and of all Assigned Contracts.

PLATINUM PARTNERS: Judge Freezes Assets Amid Plunder Allegations
----------------------------------------------------------------
Patrick Fitzgerald, writing for The Wall Street Journal Pro
Bankruptcy, reported that a federal judge has frozen some $118
million belonging to Platinum Partners, the hedge-fund manager at
the center of a federal fraud investigation, after a bankruptcy
trustee sued the company.

According to the report, Judge Marvin Isgur of the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court in Houston issued a temporary restraining order barring
transfers from certain bank accounts belonging to Platinum hedge
funds and investment vehicles.

Judge Isgur issued the order at the request of Trustee Richard
Schmidt, who is overseeing the remnants of oil platform operator
Black Elk Energy Offshore Operations LLC, the report related.  Mr.
Schmidt sued Platinum for $200 million in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in
Houston, alleging that insiders at Platinum's flagship fund engaged
in a scheme to "plunder" Black Elk by siphoning off the proceeds
from the sale of its prime assets before putting the company into
bankruptcy, the report further related.

Judge Isgur said the lawsuit's allegations reflect a pattern of
"fraud and abuse" by Platinum, the report said.

"If the funds are not frozen, the court finds that the funds are
likely to leave the United States and this Court's practical
ability to control them," Judge Isgur said, the report added.
"This would result in a total loss to the Plaintiff and constitutes
irreparable injury."

The lawsuit claims the scheme was engineered by a group of Platinum
executives, among them Mark Nordlicht, who founded Platinum's
flagship hedge fund, and David Levy, who is a nephew of Murray
Huberfeld, one of Platinum's founders, the report related.

The Master Fund and International Fund each filed a voluntary

the Companies Law, of the Cayman Islands (2016 Revision) in
relation to the International Fund and Master Fund, respectively.

Contemporaneously with the Chapter 15 petitions, the Liquidators
filed a motion with the Bankruptcy Court seeking the Bankruptcy
Court's recognition of (i) the Cayman Liquidations as "foreign
main
proceedings" and (ii) their appointment as "foreign
representatives" of the Funds.

PRECISION DRILLING: Moody's Rates New $350MM Unsecured Notes B3
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a B3 rating to Precision
Drilling Corporation's proposed US$350 million senior unsecured
notes.  The majority of the proceeds will be used to tender for
Precision's 2019, 2020 and 2021 senior unsecured notes.

Precision's B2 Corporate Family Rating (CFR), B2-PD Probability of
Default Rating, Speculative-Grade Liquidity Rating of SGL-2, and B3
ratings on the existing senior unsecured notes are unchanged. The
outlook remains negative.

Assignments:

Issuer: Precision Drilling Corporation

  Senior Unsecured Regular Bond/Debenture, Assigned B3(LGD4)

                         RATINGS RATIONALE

Precision's B2 Corporate Family Rating (CFR) reflects expected high
leverage and weak coverage in 2017 resulting from low North
American land drilling rig utilization severely pressuring spot
market margins, together with a rolling off of expiring high margin
contracts.  Moody's expects little recovery in EBITDA in 2017 from
a Moody's expected low 2016 level, which will keep debt to EBITDA
above 7x in 2017 and EBITDA to interest around 2x.  While Precision
has a solid market position in Canada, with all of its fleet
consisting of high quality Tier 1 rigs and a broad geographic
footprint in the major North American land drilling markets,
neither has protected the company from the downturn.  In 2017,
Moody's expects Precision will have less than 20% of its fleet
under contract, which will help to slightly mute the impact of the
downturn, as will its exposure to international land drilling
markets.  Moody's expects Precision to generate positive free cash
flow in 2017 as the Kuwaiti new build program ceases and the
company spends only maintenance and upgrade capex.

Precision's SGL-2 liquidity rating reflects good liquidity through
2017.  Pro forma for the tender offer and as of Sept. 30, 2016,
Precision will have around C$225 million of cash and an undrawn
US$550 million secured revolving credit facility (but for US$41
million in LCs), due June 2019.  Moody's expects around C$50
million of positive free cash flow through the fifteen months to
Dec. 31, 2017.  Moody's expects Precision will be in compliance
with its senior debt leverage (less than 2.5x) and interest
coverage covenant (above 1.5x) through this period.  Alternative
sources of liquidity are limited principally to the sale of
Precision's existing drilling rigs and completion and well service
rigs, which are largely encumbered.

In accordance with Moody's Loss Given Default (LGD) Methodology,
the senior unsecured notes are rated B3, one notch below the CFR,
reflecting the priority ranking of the US$550 million revolving
credit facility in the capital structure.

The negative outlook reflects Moody's expectation that EBITDA will
remain weak in 2017 keeping debt to EBITDA above 7x and EBITDA to
interest around 2x.

The rating could be downgraded if leverage increases above 8x and
liquidity deteriorates.

The rating could be upgraded if leverage approaches 5x.

Precision is a Calgary, Alberta-based corporation engaged in
onshore drilling and providing well completion and production
services to upstream oil and gas companies in North America.

The principal methodology used in this rating was Global Oilfield
Services Industry Rating Methodology published in December 2014.


PRECISION DRILLING: S&P Assigns 'BB' Rating on $350MM Unsec. Notes
------------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said it assigned its 'BB' issue-level rating and
'4' recovery rating to Precision Drilling Corp.'s proposed US$350
million senior unsecured notes maturing in 2023.  A '4' recovery
rating indicates S&P's expectation of average (30%-50%; in the
lower half of the range) recovery in a default scenario.

"We expect proceeds from the bond issue will refinance existing
outstanding debt, so the proposed debt issue should be neutral to
the company's current capital structure," said S&P Global Ratings
credit analyst Michelle Dathorne.

Precision's fully adjusted cash flow metrics have deteriorated in
2015 and 2016, due to both the dramatic decrease in projected
revenues and cash flow and the Canadian dollar's depreciation,
because the company's rated debt is in U.S. dollars.  Under S&P's
base-case scenario, it expects Precision's financial risk profile
should remain consistent with S&P's aggressive assessment.  S&P
estimates the company's three-year (2016-2018), weighted-average
funds from operations-to-debt in the 12%-15% range, and free
operating cash flow-to-debt in the 7%-10% range.  The negative
outlook reflects the potential for a downgrade to 'BB-' if the
company's near-term performance underperforms the assumptions
underpinning S&P's current 2016-2018 base case scenario.

Nevertheless, the 'BB' long-term corporate credit rating on
Precision reflects the company's strong market position in Canada,
diversified operations in the U.S., expanding international
footprint, ability to temper EBITDA margin deterioration during the
current cyclical downturn through effective cost-management, and
ability to curtail costs, limiting balance-sheet debt increases to
the effects of the depreciated Canadian dollar.  The continued
deterioration of the company's cash flow and leverage metrics
offsets this somewhat.

QUOTIENT LIMITED: Reports Q2 Fiscal 2017 Financial Results
----------------------------------------------------------
Quotient Limited reported a net loss of $17.35 million on $6.14
million of total revenue for the quarter ended Sept. 30, 2016,
compared to a net loss of $4.43 million on $4.27 million of total
revenue for the quarter ended Sept. 30, 2015.

For the six months ended Sept. 30, 2016, the Company reported a net
loss of $33.59 million on $11.86 million of total revenues compared
to a net loss of $14.58 million on $9.12 million of total revenue
for the six months ended Sept. 30, 2015.

Quotient ended 2QFY17 with $19 million in cash and cash equivalents
and $29.4 million of term debt.  On Oct. 14, 2016, Quotient
completed a private placement of up to $120 million of 12% Senior
Secured Notes due 2023.  Quotient issued $84 million of notes at
the initial closing, receiving net proceeds of approximately $79
million after expenses, and repaid all outstanding obligations
under its existing loan agreement with MidCap Financial Trust,
which amounted to $33.5 million including fees and expenses.  So
long as there is no event of default, Quotient will issue an
additional $36 million aggregate principal amount of notes to note
purchasers upon public announcement of successful field trial
results for the MosaiQ IH Microarray that demonstrates greater than
99% concordance for the detection of blood group antigens and
greater than 95% concordance for the detection of blood group
antibodies when compared to predicate technologies for a
pre-defined set of blood group antigens and antibodies.

Product sales in the third quarter of fiscal 2017 are expected to
be within the range of $4.3 to $4.8 million, compared with $4.4
million for the third quarter of fiscal 2016.

Quarterly product sales can fluctuate depending upon the shipment
cycles for red blood cell based products, which account for
approximately two-thirds of current product sales.  These products
typically experience 13 shipment cycles per year, equating to three
shipments of each product per quarter, except for one quarter per
year when four shipments occur.  The timing of shipment of bulk
antisera products to OEM customers may also move revenues from
quarter to quarter.  Some seasonality in demand is also experienced
around holiday periods in both Europe and the United States.  As a
result of these factors, Quotient expects to continue to see
seasonality and quarter-to-quarter variations in product sales.
The timing of product development fees included in other revenues
is mostly dependent upon the achievement of pre-negotiated project
milestones.

As of Sept. 30, 2016, the Company had $101.86 million in total
assets, $74.43 million in total liabilities and $27.43 million in
total shareholders' equity.

          Progress on the Commercial Scale-up of MosaiQ

Quotient also reported further progress on the commercial scale-up
of MosaiQ and financial results for its fiscal second quarter and
six months ended Sept. 30, 2016.

"Strong progress continues to be made advancing MosaiQ towards
commercial launch, both in terms of MosaiQ Microarray manufacturing
and completion of the final MosaiQ instrument," said Paul Cowan,
chairman and chief executive officer of Quotient. "Customer
feedback regarding MosaiQ continues to be extremely positive,
following yet another successful showing at the AABB Annual Meeting
in late October.  While we have experienced a delay in completing
planned internal validation studies for MosaiQ, the prospects for
its successful commercialization remain unchanged."

MosaiQ, Quotient's next-generation automation platform for blood
grouping and disease screening, represents a transformative and
highly disruptive testing platform for transfusion diagnostics,
with an established capability to detect antibodies, antigens and
nucleic acid (DNA or RNA).  Through MosaiQ, Quotient aims to
deliver substantial value to donor testing laboratories worldwide
with a unified instrument platform to be utilized for blood
grouping and both serological and molecular disease screening of
donated red blood cells and plasma.

Quotient showcased a working MosaiQ instrument at the 2016 Annual
Meeting of the American Association of Blood Banks (AABB) held in
Orlando, Florida on October 22-25.  Over 75 delegates from more
than 40 donor collection agencies and hospitals, mainly located in
the United States, viewed the instrument and received a progress
update on the advancement of the MosiaQ platform.

Considerable progress continues to be made on the commercial
scale-up of MosaiQ, with MosaiQ IH Microarrays for blood grouping
now being manufactured routinely at Quotient's Eysins, Switzerland
facility.  In parallel, internal validation and verification of the
MosaiQ instrument has also progressed meaningfully and is nearing
completion.  The initial MosaiQ SDS Microarray (serological disease
screen for the detection of CMV and Syphilis) is in the process of
being finalized and ongoing development efforts are focused on
completing the full serological disease screening menu.

Quotient continues to work on completing its initial internal
validation studies for the MosaiQ IH Microarray, which it had
planned to present at AABB.  Completion of these studies was
delayed after Quotient identified inconsistencies in the results of
early testing. Quotient is currently conducting a comprehensive
root-cause investigation to identify the reasons for the unexpected
variability.  The internal validation studies will recommence
following completion of this investigation and correction of any
issues identified.

Completion of European field trials and the commercial launch of
MosaiQ in Europe are currently planned for the first half of 2017.
Field trials in the United States will commence after the
completion of European field trials.  Once licensed for sale,
MosaiQ will be the first fully-automated solution for blood
grouping, providing for the comprehensive characterization of both
donor and patient blood.  Quotient intends to simultaneously launch
its MosaiQ IH Microarray into the donor and patient testing markets
with its commercial partner, Ortho-Clinical Diagnostics.  Launch of
the initial MosaiQ SDS Microarray into the donor testing market
will coincide with the launch of the MosaiQ IH Microarray.  Launch
of the full MosaiQ serological disease screening panel is currently
planned to commence three to six months after the initial MosaiQ
launch.

             Conventional Reagent Business Update

"During the second quarter, strong revenue growth was generated by
all key categories of our conventional reagent business, as product
sales grew 13% year-over-year," said Paul Cowan.  "Our U.S. direct
business had another exceptional quarter, with product sales
growing 29% year-over-year, driven by the impact of recent product
launches, new customers for our reagent red blood cell products and
better pricing."

RADIAL HOLDINGS: Moody's Affirms B3 CFR & Changes Outlook to Neg.
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service affirmed Radial Holdings, L.P.'s B3
Corporate Family Rating, B3-PD Probability of Default Rating and
the B2 and Caa2 ratings, respectively, of its first and second lien
credit facilities, and changed Radial's ratings outlook to negative
from stable.

                        RATINGS RATIONALE

The negative outlook reflects Moody's expectation that Radial's
revenue and cash flow from operations will decline over the next 12
to 18 months and its free cash flow will be negative in 2017,
significantly below Moody's previous forecast of free cash flow of
10% to 15% of total debt in 2017.  Radial's revenues could decline
by about mid-single digit percentages in 2017, largely due to the
accelerated run-off of revenues from the Webstore business, which
the company is exiting, and loss of revenues from a few customers
that filed for bankruptcy protection.  The resulting meaningful
decline in EBITDA will cause Radial's total debt to EBITDA ratio
(Moody's adjusted) to increase to near mid 5x by year-end 2017.
Radial's elevated leverage and cash burn in 2017 will reduce the
company's financial flexibility until it generates sustained EBITDA
growth.  Elevated leverage will limit Radial's access to its
revolving line of credit when the net secured leverage covenant
steps down in the third quarter of 2017, but Moody's expects Radial
to maintain adequate liquidity from its cash and cash flow from
operations.

The B3 Corporate Family Rating (CFR) reflects Radial's weak
financial profile over the next 12 to 18 months and the challenges
in generating sustained revenue growth as a standalone company. The
company's strategy to increase revenue growth through greater
penetration of small and medium-size retail customers will take
some time to reflect in the operating performance, which is heavily
dependent on the seasonally strong fourth quarter.  The company has
also made progress in integrating the operations of Innotrac and
its transition to a standalone entity after its spin-off from eBay
is largely complete.  Although Radial's revenues are expected to
decline in the next 12 to 18 months, the rating is supported by
Moody's expectation that Radial's revenue from its core services
comprising logistics, payments and omni-channel operations should
grow modestly over the next 12 to 18 months. Radial's services
enable eCommerce operations of its customers and the strong growth
in eCommerce creates a favorable demand environment.  However,
Radial's industry is highly competitive and Moody's expects
continued pricing pressure in its services. Radial's credit profile
benefits from its large scale and geographic footprint relative to
other third-party fulfillment services providers and a high
proportion of revenues that are expected under existing contacts.

Moody's could downgrade Radial's ratings if free cash flow deficits
are larger than currently expected or liquidity becomes weak.
Given the negative outlook, Moody's does not expect to upgrade the
ratings in the intermediate term.  The ratings could be upgraded
over time if Moody's believes that Radial can generate sustained
earnings growth, leverage declines to below 4x and free cash flow
increases to over 10% of total debt on a sustained basis.

Moody's affirmed these rating actions:

Issuer: Radial Holdings, L.P.

  Corporate Family Rating, B3
  Probability of Default Rating, B3-PD
  1st lien revolving credit facility, B2 (LGD3)
  1st lien term loan facility, B2 (LGD3)
  2nd lien term loan facility, Caa2 (LGD5)
  Outlook: Changed to Negative, from Stable

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Business and
Consumer Service Industry published in October 2016.

Radial provides omnichannel commerce and technology services to
retail customers.

ROCKY MOUNTAIN ACADEMY: S&P Lowers 2010 School Bonds Rating to BB+
------------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings lowered its underlying rating to 'BB+' from
'BBB-'on the Colorado Educational and Cultural Facilities
Authority's series 2010 charter school refunding and improvement
revenue bonds issued for the Rocky Mountain Academy of Evergreen
(RMAE).  At the same time, S&P placed the bonds on CreditWatch with
negative implications.

"The rating action reflects our view of significant board and
executive director turnover in the last month and a substantial
decline in enrollment in fall 2016," said S&P Global Ratings credit
analyst Debra Boyd.  "The CreditWatch action reflects our view of
enterprise instability and the potential for increased operational
pressure when the revised fiscal 2017 budget is adopted, which
should occur within the three-month outlook period," Ms. Boyd
added.

SBM DEEP: DBRS Confirms BB(high) Rating on 2021 3.5% Secured Notes
------------------------------------------------------------------
DBRS Limited changed the trend on the 3.50% Senior Secured Notes
due 2021 (the Notes) issued by SBM Deep Panuke S.A. (the Issuer) to
Stable from Negative and confirms the rating of BB (high).

The trend change follows DBRS’s trend change of Encana
Corporation’s (Encana) Issuer Rating to Stable from Negative on
October 7, 2016. Encana is the lessee of the Deep Panuke Production
Facility (the Platform) under a Charter Agreement that extends
beyond the full amortization period of the Notes, which will be
fully amortized by December 2021.

Under the Charter Agreement, Encana is responsible for paying a
fixed lease rate to the Issuer for use of the Platform. If Encana
elects to terminate the Charter Agreement, it must pay a
Termination Fee, which, together with the proceeds of the debt
service reserve account and other cash balances of the Issuer,
would be sufficient to fully repay the Notes. The rating on the
Notes is therefore strongly influenced by Encana’s ratings.

SERVICEMASTER CO: S&P Assigns 'BB-' Rating on $1BB Sr. Unsec. Notes
-------------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings assigned its 'BB-' issue-level rating to The
ServiceMaster Co. LLC's proposed $1 billion senior unsecured notes
due 2024.  The recovery rating is '4', indicating S&P's expectation
of average (30%-50%, on the upper end of the range) recovery in the
event of a payment default.  The company (a wholly owned subsidiary
of The ServiceMaster Global Holdings Inc.) intends to use the net
proceeds from this issuance and the previously announced $1.5
billion of first-lien term loan due in 2023 primarily to refinance
its $2.4 billion term loan B due 2021.

All of S&P's other ratings on the company, including its 'BB-'
corporate credit rating, are unchanged.  S&P will withdraw its
ratings on the company's existing first-lien credit facility
following termination.  The outlook remains negative.  Reported
debt outstanding pro forma for the proposed transactions is about
$3 billion.

The proposed transactions will increase ServiceMaster's adjusted
debt-to-EBITDA ratio to 4.9x from 4.6x.  S&P expects the company
will maintain debt leverage below 5x over the next 12 to 24 month
from steady profit growth in its American Home Shield (AHS) segment
and Terminix/pest control businesses.

S&P's business risk assessment on ServiceMaster reflects the
company's leading 22% market share in the relatively stable
Terminix business, which provides termite/pest control services, as
well as their exposure to economic cycles via the AHS segment
(which provides home warranty plans).  AHS is impacted by housing
prices and household discretionary income levels; in lean times,
consumers may choose to pay for repairs instead of purchasing
warranties.  Still, S&P believes the AHS segment is currently
benefiting from the housing market recovery and higher
discretionary income levels.

SERVICEMASTER COMPANY: Moody's Rates New Unsec. Notes Due 2024 'B1'
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service rated The ServiceMaster Company, LLC's
proposed senior unsecured notes due 2024 at B1.

The net proceeds of the proposed notes and a proposed senior
secured term loan due 2023 will be used to repay ServiceMaster's
existing senior secured term loan B due 2021 and add cash to the
balance sheet.

Assignments:

Issuer: ServiceMaster Company, LLC (The)
  Senior Unsecured Regular Bond/Debenture (Local Currency),
   Assigned B1 (LGD4)

                         RATINGS RATIONALE

The Ba3 Corporate Family rating reflects ServiceMaster's moderately
high debt to EBITDA which is expected to remain above 4 times.
ServiceMaster has solid market positions and scale in two business
segments (pest control and home warranty policies). Customer
retention rates of around 80% make revenues predictable. Revenues
at the Terminix division are somewhat seasonal. Disciplined cost
management, new products at Terminix, new contract sales at
American Home Shield ("AHS") and a history of steady price
increases lead Moody's to anticipate steady 5% revenue growth.
Stable and solid profitability and free cash flow, with EBITA
margins above 20% and at least $300 million of free cash flow
anticipated, could expand as non-recurring expenses associated with
legal settlements by Terminix in the U.S. Virgin Islands do not
recur and if currently high spending on infrastructure and
information technology investments abates.

Moody's expects ServiceMaster will use free cash flow to repurchase
its shares, complete acquisitions of regional pest control and home
warranty companies and make investments in new technology to
improve efficiency, but not to repay debt in excess of
contractually required minimum levels.  Liquidity from at least
$200 million of available cash, at least $250 million available
under the company's $300 million revolving credit facility and
anticipated free cash flow is considered very good.

All financial metrics cited reflect Moody's standard analytical
adjustments.

The B1 (LGD4) rating on the proposed senior secured notes reflects
the Ba3-PD Probability of Default rating and their priority in
Moody's waterfall of claims at default behind the senior secured
obligations and ahead of the approximately $450 million of
existing, structurally subordinated senior unsecured notes.  The
proposed senior unsecured notes benefit from unsecured guarantees
of certain operating subsidiaries.  A reduction in the amount of
legacy debt would reduce the first-loss support to the proposed
senior unsecured notes and could lead to a downgrade of the
proposed notes.

The stable ratings outlook reflects Moody's anticipation of 5%
revenue growth, debt to EBITDA below 4.5 times and 10% free cash
flow to debt.  The stable outlook also reflects Moody's
anticipation for free cash flow to be used to fund shareholder
returns and acquisitions.

The ratings could be lowered if Moody's expects: 1) little or no
revenue growth; 2) debt to EBITDA will be maintained above 5 times;
3) free cash flow to debt will remain below 8%; or 4) more
aggressive shareholder return or acquisition policies.

The ratings could be raised if Moody's expects: 1) debt to EBITDA
will remain below 4 times; 2) free cash flow to debt maintained
above 12%; and 3) balanced financial policies.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Business and
Consumer Service Industry published in October 2016.

ServiceMaster, a wholly-owned subsidiary of publicly-traded
ServiceMaster Global Holdings, Inc. based in Memphis, TN, is a
national provider of products and services (termite and pest
control, home service contracts, cleaning and disaster restoration,
house cleaning, furniture repair and home inspection), through
company-owned and franchised operations. Brands include: Terminix,
American Home Shield (AHS), ServiceMaster Clean, Merry Maids,
Furniture Medic and AmeriSpec. Moody's expects 2017 revenues of
over $2.8 billion.

SOUTHERN STATES: Moody's Lowers CFR to Caa1; Outlook Negative
-------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded Southern States Cooperative
Inc.'s Corporate Family Rating to Caa1 from B3.  The downgrade
results from significant earnings deterioration due to falling
commodity prices and adverse weather conditions that have weakened
volumes and compressed margins.  In conjunction with the downgrade
of the CFR, Moody's also downgraded the $130 million senior secured
second lien notes due 2021 to Caa2 and the Probability of Default
to Caa1-PD.  The company also has a $300 million ABL revolver due
2018 that is unrated. Southern States' speculative grade liquidity
(SGL) rating was withdrawn.  The outlook is negative.

Ratings downgraded:

Southern States Cooperative Inc.

  Corporate Family Rating -- to Caa1 from B3

  Probability of Default Rating -- to Caa1-PD from B3-PD

  $130 million Senior Secured Second Lien Notes due 2021 -- to
   Caa2 (LGD5) from Caa1 (LGD5)

  Ratings outlook, Negative

                         RATINGS RATIONALE

Southern States' Caa1 rating reflects the impact of substantially
lower commodity prices and volumes in the agricultural and
petroleum segments, primarily driven by weak agricultural end
markets, inventory destocking and cost cutting initiatives by
farmers, and adverse weather conditions.  The rating is also
reflective of the volatility associated with the businesses, which
can lead to significant fluctuations in volume demand as well as
margin compression.  The rating also reflects Southern States' weak
credit metrics including, its high leverage at 11.1x Debt/EBITDA,
low EBITDA Margin of 2.8%, and negative Retained Cash Flow/Debt,
that have declined significantly in fiscal year 2016 as a result of
price and volume weakness which compressed margins. The rating also
reflects the high cost of capital (10% fixed interest rate on the
senior secured second lien notes) that prevents debt reduction and
has exceeded its ability to cover interest cost with earnings.  In
response to the business challenges over the last couple of years,
the company has undertaken meaningful restructuring initiatives in
an effort to lower costs and improve operating efficiencies, and
will continue to undertake such efforts to restore profitability to
the business.

Due to the seasonal nature of its business the majority of Southern
States' earnings are realized in the four months from March to
June, making the fourth fiscal quarter the most important.  For
fiscal year 2016, the low oil pricing has compressed margins in the
Petroleum division while unusually warm weather in the fall and
winter months negatively impacted volumes. Over the same period,
the warm weather also pressured its Feed division as increased
pasture grazing lowered the demand for cattle feed during typical
winter/cold months.  In the Agronomy division, lower commodity
prices pressured farmers to cut costs and manage inventories more
prudently.  These factors combined to have a negative impact on
earnings year-over-year (yoy).

The rating is supported by the company's good competitive position
as a regional agricultural supplier in the Mid-Atlantic and
Southeastern U.S., its highly diversified customer base, and the
favorable long-term fundamentals of commercial agriculture that
underpin future demand for products, including population growth
and proliferation of industrial applications such as production of
bio-fuels.  Despite falling commodity prices, larger corn crop
planting in the 2016 growing season helped maintain volumes in
Southern States' Agronomy division, since corn requires the highest
use of fertilizers and crop protection chemicals.  However, these
volumes realized lower margins as a result of the low fertilizer
price environment.  While a smaller contributor to earnings, the
companies Farm and Home segment delivered modestly favorable
results in 2016 due to higher sales in products ranging from pet
food, to ice melting, to lawn and garden.

Liquidity

Southern States' liquidity is weak due to its negative free cash
generation and limited availability under its revolver.  Liquidity
is supported by June 30, 2016, year-end, cash balances of $18.7
million as well as $106.3 million excess availability under its
asset-based revolving credit facility (ABL).

In periods of rising commodity prices, working capital investment
tends to be a larger use of cash, though operating profits tend to
be enhanced in these periods.  Revolver usage has been high over
the past three years due to free cash flow deficits.  However,
excess revolver availability has remained positive, and is expected
to remain so.  The company typically generates positive free cash
flow in its fiscal fourth quarter, its seasonal peak, which enables
it to repay most of the revolver balances.

The ABL allows for borrowing of up to $262 million, but based on a
seasonal borrowing base calculation (and reduced by $16.9 million
for the sale of assets to Perdue) availability is only $106
million.  However, the company is required to comply with financial
covenants if availability under its revolver falls below $35
million, at which point it must comply with a 1.1 to 1.0 fixed
charge coverage ratio which they are unlikely to meet.  As a
result, effective availability is currently only $71 million.
Southern States' ABL revolver is due in July 2018.

The company has no near-term maturities, since its second lien
notes are due in 2021, and is expected to have capital expenditures
of roughly $15 to $20 million.

Southern States' negative outlook reflects its elevated leverage,
weakness in agricultural end markets and the continued weakness in
oil prices expected for fiscal year 2017.  Additionally the outlook
reflects the uncertainty of its restructuring initiatives and its
exposure to the vagaries of weather.  The outlook also reflects the
company's high cost of capital that limits its ability to reduce
leverage, as well as its inability to cover basic expenditures with
earnings.

There is currently limited upside to the rating due to the
company's elevated leverage metrics, inability to cover interest
expense with operating earnings, and continued weakness in the
agriculture industry.   upgrade could be considered if the company
were to realize a sustained improvement in price and volumes,
improvement in margins, and generate positive free cash flow such
that Debt/EBITDA fell below 6.0x and its earnings covered interest.
Conversely, further deterioration in volumes and margins, or if
total liquidity erodes further a ratings downgrade could result.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Global Chemical
Industry Rating Methodology published in December 2013.

Headquartered in Richmond, Virginia, Southern States Cooperative,
Inc. is a retailer and wholesale supplier of a diversified array of
agricultural products and services, such as fertilizer, seed, crop
protectants, animal feed, petroleum, and farm and home supplies.
Revenues for the June 30, 2016, LTM period, was roughly $1.6
billion.

ST. VINCENT HOSPITAL: Moody's Affirms Ba2 Rating on Debt
--------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service affirms the Ba2 assigned to the debt
issued by St. Vincent Hospital, PA, d/b/a St. Vincent Health Center
(SVHC), the primary operating entity of St. Vincent Health System
(SVHS).  The rating outlook is revised to negative from stable.
The action affects approximately $85 million of rated debt issued
through the Erie County Hospital Authority.

The outlook has been changed to negative from stable following
unexpectedly weak performance in FY's 2015 and interim 2016.  The
Ba2 acknowledges SVHS's still meaningfully sized patient platform
which has exhibited recent growth, relatively stable, but modest,
cash and SVHS's affiliation with Highmark Inc. (rated Baa2), a
multi-billion dollar insurance company (debt remains separately
obligated), which offers leverage with payers and operational
efficiencies.  The rating remains constrained by a history of weak
and inconsistent operations, intense competition, debt structure
risks, a large unfunded pension liability and weak socio economics
of the greater service area.

Rating Outlook

The negative outlook reflects our expectation that performance will
continue to be suppressed through FYE 2016, though it is our
expectation that operational traction will be gained as the fiscal
year comes to a close.  Failure to stabilize financial performance
or maintain the system's cash position will result in pressure on
the rating.

Factors that Could Lead to an Upgrade

  Significant operating improvement to level more in line with Ba1

   peers, which is sustained
  Notable strengthening of liquidity and debt measures and build
   of cushion to liquidity covenant
  Continued growth in demand

Factors that Could Lead to a Downgrade

  Reduced covenant headroom or covenant violation
  Failure to improve current margins or further decline in cash
   flow
  Weakening of liquidity and debt metrics
  Disintegration of relationship / affiliation with Highmark

Legal Security

SVHC is the primary entity of SVHS.  SVHC is presently the only
member of the Obligated Group.  Bonds are secured by a general
obligation of the Obligated Group.

Use of Proceeds
Not applicable.

Obligor Profile
SVHS is a tertiary level medical center located in Erie
Pennsylvania.  Effective July 1, 2013, Highmark Inc., Highmark
Health and Allegheny Health Network finalized an affiliation
agreement with SVHS.  In accordance with the terms of the
affiliation agreement, Allegheny Health Network is the sole member
of SVHS.

Methodology

The principal methodology used in this rating was Not-For-Profit

SUNEDISON INC: Canadian Unit Files for Bankruptcy Protection
------------------------------------------------------------
Tom Corrigan, writing for The Wall Street Journal Pro Bankruptcy,
reported that renewable energy giant SunEdison Inc. has placed its
Canadian arm into bankruptcy while the parent company seeks more
time under court protection in the U.S. to sell off assets and work
out a strategy for repaying billions of dollars in debt.

According to the report, the company's Canadian division, which
also designs and develops renewable energy projects, says it can no
longer fund its operations.  It sought protection from both
creditors and lawsuits under Canada’s Companies' Creditors
Arrangement Act, or CCAA, the equivalent of chapter 11 in the U.S.,
the WSJ related.

The Canadian operation, which is concentrated in Ontario, says its
financial woes are largely tied to liquidity issues stemming from
the bankruptcy of its parent company in the U.S., the report
further related.  The Canadian unit's businesses listed about $80
million in total assets and about $30 million in liabilities, in
addition to about $90 million in other potential liabilities that
are the subject of pending litigation, the report said.

In court papers filed in New York, SunEdison said it is at a
"critical juncture" in its own chapter 11 case and asked Bankruptcy
Judge Stuart Bernstein to give it until at least Feb. 15 to
formulate a plan that maximizes the value of its assets, the report
added.

TEAM HEALTH: Moody's Puts Ba3 CFR Under Review for Downgrade
------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service placed the ratings of Team Health, Inc.
under review for downgrade, including the company's Ba3 Corporate
Family Rating and Ba3-PD Probability of Default Rating.  This
action follows the announcement that Blackstone has entered into a
definitive agreement to acquire Team Health, Inc. in a deal valued
at approximately $6.1 billion.

The transaction is expected to close during the first quarter of
2017, subject to regulatory review and customary closing
conditions.

These ratings were placed under review for downgrade:

Team Health, Inc.

  Corporate Family Rating at Ba3

  Probability of Default Rating at Ba3-PD

  Senior Secured Bank Credit Facility at Ba2 (LGD3)

  Senior Unsecured Notes at B2 (LGD6)

                        RATINGS RATIONALE

Moody's review will focus on Team Health's capital structure and
credit profile should the acquisition by Blackstone be consummated.
Moody's expects that should a takeover occur, that financial
leverage would increase from current levels, making a downgrade
from existing rating levels likely.

Excluding the prospects of a Blackstone acquisition, Team Health's
existing Ba3 Corporate Family Rating reflects Moody's expectation
that the company will operate with high financial leverage,
following itsacquisition of IPC Healthcare, yet rapidly delever to
about 4 times over the next 18 months.  Moody's also considers the
benefits of the company's strong competitive position in a highly
fragmented industry and stable cash flow.  However, risks around
reimbursement and exposure to uninsured individuals could pressure
revenue and earnings growth in the near to medium term.  Moody's
also expects that the company will remain aggressive in its pursuit
of acquisitions, but that it will fund transactions in a manner
that maintains the company's ability to deleverage.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Business and
Consumer Service Industry published in October 2016.

Team Health is a provider of physician staffing and administrative
services to hospitals and other healthcare providers in the U.S.
The company is affiliated with more than 19,000 healthcare
professionals who provide emergency medicine, hospital medicine,
anesthesia, urgent care, pediatric staffing and management
services.  The company also provides a full range of healthcare
management services to military treatment facilities.  Team Health
recognized approximately $4.1 billion in net revenue for the twelve
months ended June 30, 2016.


TENET HEALTHCARE: Incurs $8 Million Net Loss in Third Quarter
-------------------------------------------------------------
Tenet Healthcare Corporation filed with the Securities and Exchange
Commission its quarterly report on Form 10-Q disclosing
a net loss attributable to common shareholders of $8 million on
$4.84 billion of net operating revenues for the three months ended
Sept. 30, 2016, compared to a net loss attributable to common
shareholders of $29 million on $4.69 billion of net operating
revenues for the same period in 2015.

For the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2016, the Company reported a
net loss attributable to common shareholders of $113 million on
$14.76 billion of net operating revenues compared to a net loss
attributable to common shareholders of $43 million on $13.60
billion of net operating revenues for the nine months ended
Sept. 30, 2015.

As of Sept. 30, 2016, Tenet Healthcare had $24.47 billion in total
assets, $21 billion in total liabilities, $2.30 billion in
redeemable noncontrolling interest in equity of consolidated
subsidiaries and $1.16 billion in total equity.

Tenet Healthcare reported a net loss from continuing operations of
$9 million in the third quarter of 2016, a $19 million improvement
when compared to a $28 million net loss from continuing operations
in the third quarter of 2015.  Adjusted EBITDA was $570 million in
the third quarter of 2016, an increase of $4 million, or 0.7
percent, compared to $566 million in the third quarter of 2015.

"Our focus on high-acuity service lines continues to drive growth
in our hospitals and contributed to the 5.3% increase in
same-hospital patient revenues this quarter.  Adjusted EBITDA in
our hospital segment increased by a similar amount after adjusting
for acquisitions, divestitures and electronic health record
incentives," said Trevor Fetter, chairman and chief executive
officer.  "Conifer and USPI delivered another outstanding quarter,
and our three business segments continue to work together to
enhance our long-term growth."

               Hospital Operations and Other Segment

Net operating revenue in the Hospital Operations and other segment
was $4.162 billion, down 0.4 percent from $4.179 billion in the
third quarter of 2015 due to hospitals that have been divested
since that time.  On a same-hospital basis, patient revenue
increased to $3.768 billion, up 5.3 percent from $3.577 billion in
the third quarter of 2015.  The increase was driven by a 1.4
percent increase in adjusted patient admissions and a 3.9 percent
increase in net patient revenue per adjusted admission.

Adjusted EBITDA in Tenet's hospital segment was $334 million,
representing a decline of 12.8 percent as compared to $383 million
in the third quarter of 2015.  The decline was primarily driven by
divestitures in 2015 and 2016 and an expected decrease in
electronic health record incentives, and was partially offset by
acquisitions in 2015.  In addition, Tenet's health plan business
lowered EBITDA in the segment by approximately $5 million.

Total hospital segment selected operating expenses, defined as the
sum of salaries, wages and benefits, supplies and other operating
expenses, increased 3.1 percent on a per adjusted admission basis
in the quarter.  Approximately one-third of the increase was
attributable to an increase in expense at Tenet's health plans,
which was substantially offset by an increase in health plan
revenues as a result of additional covered lives in 2016.

Exchanges

Tenet's same-hospital exchange admissions were 5,465 in the third
quarter of 2016, up 16.9 percent from the third quarter of 2015.
Same-hospital exchange outpatient visits were 51,015, up 32.0
percent from the third quarter of 2015.

Uncompensated Care

Tenet's provision for doubtful accounts was $367 million in the
third quarter of 2016, representing a ratio of 7.0 percent of
revenues before bad debt, as compared to $371 million in the third
quarter of 2015, or 7.3 percent of revenues before bad debt.
Tenet's uncompensated care costs, defined as the sum of the
provision for doubtful accounts, charity care write-offs and
uninsured discounts, was $1.318 billion and $1.303 billion in the
third quarters of 2016 and 2015, respectively, including $951
million and $932 million, respectively, of charity care write-offs
and uninsured discounts that were offered through Tenet's Compact
with Uninsured Patients.  Uncompensated care represented 21.4
percent of revenue before bad debts, uninsured discounts and
charity care write-offs in the third quarter of 2016, down from
21.7 percent in the third quarter of 2015.  Nearly all of Tenet's
uncompensated care is associated with the Hospital Operations and
other segment.

Uninsured plus charity admissions increased by 985 admissions, or
10.5 percent on a same-hospital basis in the third quarter of 2016
compared to the third quarter of 2015.  Uninsured plus charity
outpatient visits decreased by 3,733 visits, or 2.8 percent, on a
same-hospital basis.

Ambulatory Care Segment

During the third quarter of 2016, the Ambulatory segment produced
net operating revenue of $448 million, representing an increase of
36.2 percent as compared to $329 million in the third quarter of
2015.  In addition, the Ambulatory segment generated Adjusted
EBITDA of $157 million, up 28.7 percent from $122 million in the
third quarter of 2015

The results of many of the facilities in which the Ambulatory
segment has an investment are not consolidated by Tenet.  To help
analyze the segment's results of operations, management uses
system-wide measures which include revenues and cases of both
consolidated and unconsolidated facilities.  On a same-facility
system-wide basis, revenue in the Ambulatory segment increased 9.7
percent, with cases increasing 4.0 percent and revenue per case
increasing 5.5 percent.

Conifer Segment

During the third quarter of 2016, Conifer's revenue increased 14.7
percent to $398 million, up from $347 million in the third quarter
of 2015, and Conifer's revenue from third party customers increased
by 29.9 percent to $239 million.  Conifer generated $79 million of
Adjusted EBITDA in the third quarter of 2016, up 29.5 percent from
$61 million in the third quarter of 2015.  Conifer's results for
the third quarter of 2016 included $9 million of annual customer
incentives.  These incentives may be achieved again in future
years, but will not recur at these levels in the fourth quarter of
2016.

Net Income and Earnings Per Share

Tenet reported a net loss from continuing operations of $9 million,
or $0.09 per share, in the third quarter of 2016 compared to a net
loss of $28 million, or $0.28 per share, in the third quarter of
2015.

After adjusting for certain items, Tenet generated Adjusted net
income from continuing operations of $16 million, or $0.16 per
diluted share, during the third quarter of 2016, as compared to
Adjusted net income from continuing operations of $30 million, or
$0.29 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2015.

A reconciliation of GAAP net income available (loss attributable)
to Tenet Healthcare Corporation common shareholders to Adjusted net
income from continuing operations and Adjusted diluted earnings per
share from continuing operations is contained in Table #2 at the
end of this release.

Cash Flow and Liquidity

Cash and cash equivalents were $649 million at Sept. 30, 2016,
compared to $656 million at June 30, 2016.  The Company had no
outstanding borrowings on its $1 billion credit line as of
Sept. 30, 2016.  Accounts receivable days outstanding were 52.9 at
Sept. 30, 2016, compared to 51.1 at June 30, 2016, and 49.5 at Dec.
31, 2015.

Net cash provided by operating activities in the nine months ended
Sept. 30, 2016, was $851 million, representing a $16 million
improvement compared to $835 million in the comparable period in
2015.  After subtracting $614 million and $566 million of capital
expenditures in the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2016, and
Sept. 30, 2015, respectively, Free Cash Flow was $237 million in
the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2016, representing a $32 million
decline compared to $269 million in the comparable period in 2015.
Adjusted Free Cash Flow was $368 million in the nine months ended
Sept. 30, 2016, representing a $76 million decline from $444
million in the comparable period in 2015.

Net cash used in investing activities was $150 million in the nine
months ended Sept. 30, 2016, compared to $1.272 billion of net cash
used in investing activities in the comparable period in 2015.  Net
cash used in financing activities was $408 million in the nine
months ended Sept. 30, 2016, compared to $694 million of net cash
provided by financing activities in the comparable period in 2015.

TOMS SHOES: S&P Affirms 'B-' CCR; Outlook Stable
------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said that it affirmed its 'B-' corporate credit
rating on Los Angeles-based TOMS Shoes LLC.  The outlook is stable.


At the same time, S&P affirmed its 'B-' issue-level rating on the
company's $306.5 million senior secured term loan due 2020.  S&P
revised the recovery rating to '4' from '3'.  The '4' recovery
rating indicates S&P's expectation that lenders could expect
average (30%-50%, lower half of the range) recovery in the event of
payment default.

The company had about $320 million in reported debt outstanding as
of June 30, 2016.

"The rating affirmation reflects our expectation that, despite the
company's currently weak credit metrics, TOMS Shoes' EBITDA and
cash flows should continue to strengthen as the business further
stabilizes under the new management.  We expect the company's
debt-to-EBITDA ratio to gradually strengthen to below 10x in 2017,
as management's actions to restore top line growth, improve
operating margins, and generate positive cash flows to reduce debt
take effect," said S&P Global Ratings credit analyst Suyun Qu.

S&P's rating on TOMS reflects its recent operating underperformance
that materially weakened its financial position and left it
burdened by high financial leverage.  It also incorporates S&P's
assessment of the company as a small and narrowly-focused player
within the highly competitive casual shoe segment, a challenging
retail sector as key retailers grapple with lower foot traffic and
digital competition.  S&P also considers the company's reliance on
one single well-known brand amongst millennials.

S&P believes TOMS' operating performance has improved under its new
management, who have taken the necessary steps to stabilize
performance.  For example, the company is restructuring its
manufacturing and supply chain network to support its
diversification into winter and all-weather shoes from its
signature Alpargata style shoe.  It is also developing a new retail
channel strategy to encompass full price and off price channels, as
well as its own digital platform.  Moreover, management has
implemented working capital initiatives that focus on inventory
management, which has resulted in significantly reduced inventory
balances.  Nevertheless, the heavy inventory purchase in late 2015
led to higher-than-expected debt levels, as the company drew on its
revolver to fund the working capital deficit.

Even though TOMS typically generates most of its earnings and cash
flow in the first half of the year, S&P believes the upcoming
holiday season is important, as TOMS has expanded its assortment to
all seasons.  However, despite challenges at retailers from falling
foot traffic, S&P believes TOMS should be able to expand its top
line through its broader product offering, a better pricing
strategy, as well as by expanding sales into new channels.

The outlook is stable, reflecting S&P's expectations of gradually
strengthening credit metrics on the back of the company's focus on
actions that lead to modest top line growth, operating margin
improvements, and better working capital management.  S&P expects
the company's credit metrics to remain relatively weak, but
gradually improve as the company applies its positive free cash
flow towards debt reduction.  This should also allow TOMS to build
more liquidity headroom, as it reduces its revolver borrowings.



ULTIMATE AVT: Seeks to Hire Eric A. Liepins as Legal Counsel
------------------------------------------------------------
Ultimate AVT Inc. seeks approval from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the Northern District of Texas to hire Eric A. Liepins, P.C.

The firm will serve as the Debtor's legal counsel in connection
with its Chapter 11 case.  

Eric Liepins, Esq., a shareholder of the firm, will be paid an
hourly rate of $275 while his paralegals and legal assistants will
be paid between $30 and $50 per hour.

In a court filing, Mr. Liepins disclosed that his firm does not
represent any interest adverse to the Debtor's bankruptcy estate.

                     About Ultimate AVT Inc.

Ultimate AVT, Inc. filed a voluntary Chapter 11 petition (Bankr.
N.D. Tex. Case No. 16-34140) on October 25, 2016.  The Debtor is
represented by Eric A. Liepins, Esq., at Eric A. Liepins, P.C.


UNISYS CORP: S&P Lowers CCR to 'B'; Outlook Negative
----------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said it lowered its corporate credit rating on
Blue Bell, Pa.-based Unisys Corp. to 'B' from 'B+'.  The outlook is
negative.

S&P also lowered the issue-level rating on the company's unsecured
notes to 'B' from 'B+'.  The recovery rating is unchanged at '4',
indicating S&P's expectation for average (30%-50%; lower half of
the range) recovery in the event of payment default.

S&P's downgrade of Unisys is based on S&P's view that weak demand
for IT services, slower-than-expected margin expansion from
restructuring efforts, and significant required pension
contributions will preclude Unisys from generating sustained
positive free cash flow or reducing S&P Global-adjusted leverage
under 5x for at least the next 18 months," said S&P Global credit
analyst James Thomas.

S&P's negative outlook results from its expectation that the
upcoming August 2017 maturity of its $210 million unsecured notes
will significantly reduce cash balances and limit Unisys's
financial flexibility, absent a refinancing transaction.  S&P's
outlook also incorporates the risk the firm may not be able to
improve profitability sufficiently to return to sustainable free
cash flow generation over the longer term as well, as required
pension contributions are projected to increase considerably in
2019.

S&P's negative outlook on Unisys Corp. is based on S&P's
expectation that sizable mandatory pension contributions and
restructuring expenses will constrain the firm's ability to
generate free cash flow over the next 12-24 months in spite of
recent improvements to EBITDA margins and a moderating pace of
revenue decline.

UWAGBOE O. ORU-LAWRENCE: CSNDC Can Purchase Properties, Judge Rules
-------------------------------------------------------------------
A broad coalition of law firms, city agencies and tenant advocacy
groups has secured a precedent-setting win for low-income renters
in Dorchester and Mattapan.  Fifty-nine homes in this area will now
be preserved as affordable housing after a Federal bankruptcy judge
ruled that the Codman Square Neighborhood Development Corporation
(CSNDC), a non-profit developer of affordable housing, can purchase
the properties located at 91-101 Waldeck St. and 25-35 Orlando St.
from the bankrupt landlord.

The coalition of supporters working pro bono to secure the sale of
these properties included the Boston Public Health Commission, City
Life/Vida Urbana, the City of Boston, CSNDC, Goulston & Storrs,
Greater Boston Legal Services, Jones Day and Pillsbury Winthrop
Shaw Pittman.

"Ensuring that Boston remains an affordable place to live is
critical to the future of our city," Mayor Walsh said.  "I want to
commend the entire team that worked on the acquisition of these
properties for their commitment to the well-being of the tenants
who live on Orlando and Waldeck Streets, and the tenants for their
engagement in the process.  Boston is a city that works together to
protect its vulnerable residents, and I am pleased we were able to
assist."

The administration of Major Martin J. Walsh was an active partner
in the acquisition of these properties, bolstering the efforts of
the tenants by filing a supporting affidavit with the court.  In
addition, through the City's new Acquisition Opportunity Fund, the
City was able to quickly commit and provide a loan to assist in
both the acquisition of the properties and to make the initial
repairs and improvements needed to address critical health and
safety issues, all in time to meet the strict deadline for the
bankruptcy sale.

City Life/Vida Urbana, the housing justice organization that worked
with the tenants, credits the tenants for catalyzing the successful
campaign.  "We all get along, all the tenants get along.  So, it's
a good community to me.  To all of us, it's a good community.  We
have to back each other up," said Dania Rosaria, a tenant on
Orlando St. after an October 5, 2016 bankruptcy court hearing which
cleared the way for the sale.

"This victory helps refine an important anti-displacement strategy
which we call 'the sword, the shield and the offer,'" said Steve
Meacham, Coordinator of Organizing at City Life/Vida Urbana.  "The
'sword' was the protests and coalition building. The 'offer' came
from CSNDC.  The 'shield' was the energetic legal defense provided
by GBLS and the incredible pro bono hours donated by the three law
firms.  We hope to use this model in many other locations where we
have organized tenant associations," Mr. Meacham said.

Jacquelynne J. Bowman, Executive Director of Greater Boston Legal
Services (GBLS), which led the representation of the low-income
tenants with Pillsbury, Jones Day and the Boston Public Health
Commission, noted: "This victory is first and foremost a powerful
demonstration that often, the most creative and effective solution
to critical problems faced by poor people come from the very people
whose lives are impacted."  Lauren Song, also of GBLS, who
coordinated the pro bono representation of the tenants, remarked:
"This precedent-setting win was borne out of a deep commitment by
our pro bono community to use its legal expertise to protect the
rights of the City's most vulnerable people.  And here, the pro
bono coalition is proud to credit the tenants, organized by City
Life/Vida Urbana, who successfully pursued a court strategy that
achieved so much more than preserve their own housing."

Jim Wallack, a bankruptcy partner at Goulston & Storrs who led the
representation of CSNDC along with real estate partner Amy Moody
McGrath, commented, "The coalition's entire bankruptcy and real
estate legal team worked tirelessly on this case, and we are
thrilled with this outcome for the tenants."  Ms. McGrath further
noted, "After years of deplorable living conditions, the tenants
will now have affordable housing that will be maintained in the
manner that it should have been all along."

John D. Hanify of Jones Day observed: "This is a great victory for
the determined residents of Orlando and Waldeck Streets, who
organized and recruited the City, its agencies, GBLS and CSNDC to
forge a partnership that will assure this housing remains
affordable for future generations of City residents.  Jones Day was
pleased to play a supportive role."

The owner of the buildings, Uwagboe O. Oru-Lawrence, filed for
Chapter 11 Bankruptcy in 2013 and continued to operate his
properties as debtor-in-possession until July 2016.  Earlier this
year, the Inspectional Services Department of the City of Boston
had filed several court actions against the owner to address
violations in connection with health and safety issues at the
Dorchester and Mattapan properties, including electrical and vermin
problems.

Joseph Butler, the Trustee appointed to administer the bankruptcy
case, filed a motion in July 2016 to abandon the Orlando St.
property, essentially allowing the mortgage holder to foreclose on
the property.  In early August, CSNDC began discussions with the
Trustee to acquire the Orlando St. property, as well as the Waldeck
St. property, and preserve them as affordable housing.  The
Tenants, along with the Boston Public Health Commission, held
claims against the bankruptcy estate in excess of $3,500,000
without duplication; however, they agreed to waive their claims if
the property was sold to a non-profit such as CSNDC with the
agreement that it would be maintained as affordable housing.

On Oct. 5, 2016, the Trustee conducted a sealed bid auction in the
bankruptcy court, and determined that CSNDC's bid was the highest
and best offer due in large part to the claim waivers. Chris
Mirick, a partner at Pillsbury who argued in court on behalf of the
tenants, commented on the bid structure: "It was important to the
tenants that these apartments be preserved as affordable housing.
By waiving their claims, they were able to improve the economics of
the CSNDC bid and achieve this great result."  In approving of the
Trustee's decision, Chief Judge Hoffman held that the wishes of the
Tenants, as a large creditor body other than the mortgage holders,
should be taken into consideration in determining the outcome of
the matter.  The sale of the properties to CSNDC was approved by
the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Massachusetts on
October 5, 2016 and the final deal closed on October 27, 2016.

"We are pleased by the judge's ruling, which will provide
much-needed stability for our clients, 12 previously homeless
individuals who had found themselves in our emergency shelter
system.  Connecting our clients with permanent housing solutions
such as these is the ultimate goal of BPHC's homeless services, and
is the answer to ending chronic homelessness," said BPHC Executive
Director Monica Valdes Lupi, JD, MPH.  "The efforts of our General
Counsel Tim Harrington and Assistant General Counsel Mimi Brown on
behalf of the tenants showcase the mission of BPHC: to protect,
preserve, and promote the health and well-being of all residents,
particularly the most vulnerable."

"The process of working with the coalition -- the attorneys, the
City of Boston, our funding partners, City Life/Vida Urbana and the
tenants of the Waldeck and Orlando St. properties -- represents the
personification of CSNDC's mission of building a cohesive and
resilient community in South Dorchester and developing affordable
housing that is safe and sustainable, and that promotes economic
stability for low- and moderate-income residents," noted Gail
Latimore, Executive Director at CSNDC.  "We look forward to
continuing these important partnerships as we renovate these
properties to ensure future stability," said K. Beth O'Donnell,
CSNDC's Director of Real Estate.

WAFERGEN BIO-SYSTEMS: Reports Third Quarter Financial Results
-------------------------------------------------------------
WaferGen Bio-systems, Inc., announced preliminary, unaudited
revenue for the third quarter ended Sept. 30, 2016.

The Company expects total revenue for the third quarter to be
approximately $2.4 million, which does not include $273,000 in
deferred revenue plus backlog for purchase orders received during
the third quarter which will be booked in the fourth quarter. Total
revenue for the third quarter represents an increase of 20%, when
compared to the $2.0 million reported for the third quarter of
2015.  The primary driver of revenue growth was sales of the
Company's SmartChip products and services, including the ICELL8
Single-Cell System, which comprised approximately 72% of total
revenue during the quarter, compared to 63% in the prior year
period.  In addition, cash burn was significantly reduced in the
third quarter vs. the second quarter resulting in an estimated
ending cash position of $5.1 million on Sept. 30, 2016.

Year-to-date total revenue through the first three quarters is
approximately $6.8 million, which represents an increase of 42%,
when compared to $4.8 million reported through the third quarter of
2015.  The Company is maintaining revenue guidance of $10 million
to $12 million for 2016.

"We are pleased to release these results, which demonstrate we are
on track to achieve consolidated 2016 revenues exceeding $9 million
and provide stockholders with transparency and clarity about the
benefit they will receive from the merger with Takara Bio USA
Holdings, Inc.," said Rollie Carlson, Ph.D., president and chief
executive officer of WaferGen.

As described in the proxy statement for the special meeting called
to approve the merger, the consideration to be paid by Takara Bio
will be determined primarily by a formula based on WaferGen's
consolidated revenues for the year ending Dec. 31, 2016, and on
certain specified deductions.  The proxy statement provides
illustrative calculations based on, among other things,
consolidated 2016 revenues of $9.0 million and illustrative
deductions of $7.61 million and $4.20 million, showing, based on
such assumptions, per share consideration payable to WaferGen
stockholders of $1.0000 and $1.1409. Such merger consideration per
share would represent a premium of 82% and 107%, respectively, over
WaferGen's closing stock price of $0.55 on May 12, 2016, the day
preceding the announcement of the merger agreement.

Stockholders who have not yet voted on the merger agreement with
Takara Bio USA Holdings, Inc. are reminded every vote will count no
matter how many shares you own.  Stockholders with questions are
encouraged to call WaferGen's information agent and strategic
shareholder services advisor, Kingsdale Shareholder Services at
1-866-581-0512 or contactus@kingsdaleshareholder.com.  For further
information about the merger proposal, please see the proxy
statement mailed to stockholders on or around Sept. 23, 2016.

The quarterly financial results included in the press release were
calculated prior to the completion of a review by WaferGen
Bio-systems' external auditors and are therefore subject to
adjustment.  Actual revenues for the third quarter of 2016 may
differ materially from our expectations.

WaferGen Bio-systems will announce its third quarter ended
Sept. 30, 2016, financial results after the market close and host a
conference call and webcast on Tuesday, Nov. 8, 2016.

WESTERN AUTO: Wants Authorization to Use Cash Collateral
--------------------------------------------------------
Western Auto Sales, LLC asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Idaho for authorization to use cash collateral.

The Debtor is indebted to:

     (a) Nextgear Capital, Inc. f/k/a Dealer Services Corporation,
in the amount of approximately $484,023.69.  The indebtedness is
secured by 41 vehicles;

     (b) Automotive Finance Corporation, in the amount of
approximately $257,219.44. The indebtedness is secured by 33
vehicles; and

     (c) Westlake Flooring Company, LLC, in the amount of
approximately $94,141.33.  The indebtedness is secured by 11
vehicles.

The Debtor estimates it would be able to liquidate its inventory in
a reasonable time for approximately $1,300,000, which exceeds the
value of the flooring creditors' purchase money security interests
by approximately $420,695.

The Debtor relates that it needs to use cash collateral to provide
for:

     (1) Payoffs for vehicles sold pre-petition in order to receive
titles for such vehicles.  The Debtor estimates this amount to be a
total of:

          (a) Automotive Finance Corporation: $31,536.16

          (b) Nextgear Capital: $20,770.50

     (2) Payoffs for traded-in vehicles subject to loans.  The
Debtor estimates this amount to be $12,750.

     (3) Pay Ms. Warner for a vehicle Debtor sold on consignment.
The Debtor estimates this amount to be $6,500.

     (4) Payoffs for vehicles sold post-petition in order to
receive titles for such vehicles.

     (5) General overhead of the dealership, pursuant to the
Debtor's proposed Budget.

The Debtor's proposed Budget provides for total expenses in the
amount of $363,467 for November 2016, $316,467 for December 2016,
$272,592 for January 2017, $231,217 for February 2017.

The Debtor proposes to make monthly adequate protection payments to
its flooring lenders in the amount of $10,000 on a pro rata basis.

The Debtor contends that it is currently $21,200 short to get "back
in trust."  The Debtor further tells the Court that it currently
has a non-floored vehicle for which it has a buyer and believes it
can net near $18,000 just for that vehicle. The Debtor adds that it
has four vehicles, floored with Nextgear Capital, that is prepared
to be sold to another dealer and believes it can net approximately
$14,000 from this sale as well.

The Debtor tells the Court that it needs to be able to sell these
vehicles, and get back in trust, as well as payoff the liens for
each vehicle accepted as a trade-in.  The Debtor says that should
it be unable to do so, significant harm could come to pre-petition
customers, and their lenders, who may not receive titles for their
vehicles or have the liens on their trade-in paid.

YELLOWSTONE CLUB: Court Dismisses Founder's Suit vs. Byrne, et al.
------------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Richard G. Stearns of the United States District Court for
the District of Massachusetts allowed the defendants' motion to
dismiss the case captioned TIMOTHY BLIXSETH, v. SAMUEL BYRNE ET
AL., Civil Action No. 10-12182-RGS (D. Mass.).

The case is one of many involving the bankruptcy estate of the
Yellowstone Club, a luxury property development near Big Sky,
Montana, and its founders, Timothy Blixseth and Edra Blixseth, long
since divorced.  Timothy alleged that the defendants CrossHarbor
Capital Partners, LLC, CIP Yellowstone Lending, and Samuel Byrne
(CrossHarbor's founder and managing partner) conspired with Edra to
ruin him financially.  Timothy filed the action in the Central
District of California in April of 2010, asserting ten state-law
claims.  That court ordered the case transferred to the District of
Massachusetts in November of 2010.  

The defendants moved to dismiss pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P.
12(b)(6), for want of a claim worthy of adjudication.

Judge Stearns opined that the dispute is ultimately one of limited
academic interest.  The judge found that Timothy's complaint is a
hodgepodge of conspiratorial imaginings, conclusory and
contradictory assertions of fact, and overheated rhetoric.  Judge
Stearns explained that to cross the plausibility threshold to
defeat a motion to dismiss, a complaint must "plead[] factual
content that allows the court to draw the reasonable inference that
the defendant is liable for the misconduct alleged."  "Merely
reciting the elements of a cause of action adorned with the
prediction that each is or will be met during the course of
discovery does not suffice," said the judge.

order is available at https://is.gd/K1jg4K from Leagle.com.

[*] Milbank Partners Author 2nd Ed. LSTA's Credit Agreement Guide
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Global Leveraged Finance partners Michael Bellucci and Jerome
McCluskey of Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy LLP have published a
comprehensively updated manual for the global syndicated credit
market, The LSTA's Complete Credit Agreement Guide, Second Edition,
in conjunction with the Loan Syndications & Trading Association
(LSTA).

Seven years and one global financial crisis after the first edition
of the guide, Messrs. Bellucci and McCluskey and have produced a
one-stop resource, covering all layers of the international loan
market and reflecting the transformations and upheavals that have
shaped syndicated credit agreements since 2009.  The first edition
quickly won an industry-wide reputation as the definitive
reference, and the new edition remains the only updated
single-volume guide to navigate the syndicated loan market and its
underlying credit agreements.

Andrew O'Brien, global head of Loan Capital Strategy for JPMorgan
Chase, calls the second edition: "an excellent resource that
provides clear explanation and rationale for the more complex
components of today's credit agreements.  It is a very useful tool
for anyone involved in the loan market."

Thomas Finke, CEO of global investment manager Barings LLC, said:
"This is the comprehensive resource for deciphering the
complexities of a syndicated credit agreement.  A must-have guide
for today's global loan market that unbundles the intricate layers
of credit terms, market trends, and global forces that together
impact the ultimate deal cut between the corporate borrower and its
lenders."

The book will be available in hardcover and electronically. In
addition to all eRetailers, the book can be purchased from:

   -- Amazon
   -- Barnes & Noble

The LSTA's Complete Credit Agreement Guide portrays the many
changes that have occurred among lenders as well as borrowers since
the recession and closely covers the evolving regulatory landscape
of credit agreement provisions.  Never a simple or an easy process,
structuring and managing credit agreements are now more complicated
than ever -- whether for borrowers or lenders such as banks, hedge
funds, pension funds, insurance companies, and other financial
institutions.  

"We believe this book is a cutting-edge resource for loan market
participants," said Mr. Bellucci, "as well as a historical guide to
the evolution of many standard credit agreement provisions and
practices.  We are excited for its publication."

Mr. McCluskey added: "Since the last edition of the book was
published in 2009, there has been a tremendous amount of turbulence
and disruption in the syndicated loan markets.  The standard credit
agreement has been a great indicator of the substantial changes
that have come to bear and we have tried to make sense of it all.
Our goal was to build upon the excellent foundation provided by the
first edition and to update what I believe is commonly known as the
go-to reference guide for the loan market."  

Included among the timely topics in the more than 700-page guide
are:

   -- What to look for in large sponsor-driven deals
   -- The rise of "covenant lite" agreements for corporate
      borrowers seeking fewer covenant restrictions
   -- Yankee Loans
   -- Commitments, Loans, and Letters of Credit
   -- Interest and Fees
   -- Amortization and Maturity
   -- Conditions Precedent
   -- Representations
   -- Covenants
   -- Guarantees and Security
   -- Defaults and Enforcement
   -- Interlender, Voting, and Agency issues
   -- Defaulting Lenders
   -- Assignments, Participations, and Disqualified Lender Lists
   -- Borrower Rights
   -- Regulatory Developments

                            *********

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.

TCR subscribers have free access to our on-line news archive.
Point your Web browser to http://TCRresources.bankrupt.com/and use
the e-mail address to which your TCR is delivered to login.
