       by another broker other than Broker.

ACE CASH: S&P Raises ICR to 'CCC+'; Outlook Negative
----------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said it raised its issuer credit rating on ACE
Cash Express Inc. to 'CCC+' from 'CC'.  The outlook is negative.

S&P is raising the debt rating on existing senior secured notes to
'CCC+' from 'CC'.  The recovery rating on the notes is '4',
indicating S&P's expectation for average (30%-50%, upper half of
the range) recovery of principal in the event of a payment default.


"On Nov. 4, 2016, ACE announced the expiration of its exchange
offer and the FSH tender offer as it did not meet the minimum
participation condition set forth in the exchange offer," said S&P
Global Ratings credit analyst Gaurav A Parikh.  Under the exchange
offer, the company is returning all the notes or $5.03 million,
which were validly tendered and not withdrawn.  The upgrade
reflects S&P's expectation for no further exchange offers at this
time.

The 'CCC+' rating reflects the company's significant reliance on
its short-term payday lending to generate revenues and its exposure
to adverse regulatory reforms, which are likely to come from the
Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) related to consumer
lending.  As of June 30, 2016, the company generated 63% of
revenues from short-term loans, 16% from check cashing, 14% from
prepaid debit cards, and 7% from various other products such as
bill payment, money orders, etc.  Following the expiration of the
exchange offer, the company will have $332 million of existing
senior notes outstanding, of which about $104 million is owned by
FSH Funding Company, LLC – an affiliate of JLL Partners, LLC.

Under the FSH tender offer, as of Oct. 21, 2016, the FSH Funding
Company had validly accepted the tendering of 9.74% or $24.55
million through the modified Dutch auction.  All holders who
validly tendered were paid a price of $650 plus the early tender
premium of $50 per $1,000 principal amount.

ACE Cash did not receive majority consent from noteholders to
eliminate the restrictive covenants and default provisions.  The
company was also unable to get an approval from debtholder
representing 66 2/3% of principal to effectuate the proposed
collateral release.  As a result, all the existing covenants and
collateral requirements remain in place.

The negative outlook reflects S&P's belief that ACE's operating
performance may worsen, contingent upon final consumer lending
rules by the CFPB, resulting in lower origination volume, high loan
losses, and increased compliance costs.  S&P expects the company's
leverage to remain between 3.0x-4.0x along with EBITDA interest
coverage staying above 2.0x.  

S&P could lower the rating over the next 12 months, if the company
engages in another distressed debt transaction.  S&P could also
lower its ratings, if EBITDA coverage falls below 2.0x.

An outlook revision to stable is unlikely over the next 12 months
even if the regulations become clearer as we do not expect
operating performance to materially improve.  However, S&P could
revise the outlook to stable, if the company is able to transition
from its reliance on short-term payday lending to long-term lending
without materially impacting its operating profitability.

AMERICAN APPAREL: 13 U.K. Stores Placed in Administration
---------------------------------------------------------
Patrick Fitzgerald, writing for The Wall Street Journal Pro

troubled retailer looks for a buyer for its brand less than year
after it exited bankruptcy in the U.S.

According to the report, administrators from U.K.-based
restructuring firm KPMG said American Apparel's 13 stores were
placed in administration, a process similar to chapter 11 in the
U.S.

The American Apparel brand and its U.S. business are being sold,
the report related.  The decision to call in the U.K.
administrators comes just weeks after a management shake-up and
less than a year after the beleaguered retailer emerged from
chapter 11 protection, WSJ pointed out.

Jim Tucker, Joint Administrator and Restructuring Partner at KPMG,
commented:

"The American Apparel group has been experiencing strong retail
headwinds, which has culminated in the US parent deciding to stop
inventory shipments to the UK. The UK business has experienced
similar trading difficulties, resulting in the appointment of
administrators.

"The 13 UK stores are well stocked and will continue to trade as
usual in the lead up to the peak Christmas trading period.  Whilst
the UK business is not part of the US sale, a number of the UK
stores are in prime high street locations, and we will also aim to
sell individual stores following the Christmas trading peak."

The UK stores are in the following locations:

   * London:
      - Camden High Street
      - Carnaby Street
      - Covent Garden
      - Kensington High Street
      - Oxford Street
      - Shoreditch
      - Westfield Stratford
      - Westfield White City

   * Rest of UK:
      - Brighton
      - Nottingham
      - Bristol
      - Glasgow
      - Leeds

                About American Apparel

American Apparel, Inc., American Apparel (USA), LLC, American
Apparel Retail, Inc., American Apparel Dyeing & Finishing, Inc.,
KCL Knitting, LLC and Fresh Air Freight, Inc. sought Chapter 11
bankruptcy protection (Bankr. D. Del. Proposed Lead Case No.
15-12055) on Oct. 5, 2015.  The petition were signed by Hassan
Natha, the chief financial officer.

The Debtors reported total assets of $199,360,934 and total
liabilities of $397,576,744.

The Debtors and their non-debtor affiliates operate a vertically
integrated manufacturing, distribution, and retail business
focused on branded fashion-basic apparel, employing approximately
8,500 employees across six manufacturing facilities and
approximately 230 retail stores in the United States and 17 other
countries worldwide.

The Debtors have engaged Jones Day as restructuring counsel,
Pachulski Stang Ziehl & Jones LLP as local counsel, Moelis &
Company as investment banker, FTI Consulting, Inc. as financial
advisor, DJM Real Estate as real estate consultant and Garden City
Group, LLC as claims and noticing agent.

                    *     *     *

The Debtors filed a proposed Joint Plan of Reorganization that
contemplates converting more than $200 million of senior notes
into equity interests of the reorganized American Apparel.

On Nov. 20, 2015, the Court approved the Disclosure Statement and
set a Jan. 7, 2016 voting deadline and a Jan. 20 plan confirmation
hearing.

On Jan. 10, 2016, the Debtors received a letter from former CEO
Dov Charney disclosing a proposed $300 million alternative
transaction that will be funded by Hagan Capital Group and Silver
Creek Capital Partners but American Apparel rejected the proposal.

On Jan. 25, 2016, the Court held a telephonic hearing, granting
confirmation of the Debtors' First Amended Plan, provided certain
revisions were made to the First Amended Plan and the proposed
confirmation order.

On Jan. 27, 2016, the Court entered an order confirming American
Apparel's First Amended Joint Plan of Reorganization, under which,
on Feb. 5, 2016, the Effective Date of the Plan, all shares of
Common Stock and other equity interests in the Company were
cancelled and terminated, and the Company was converted into a
Delaware limited liability company with membership interests
issued
to unitholders, including certain Reporting Persons, in accordance
with the Plan.


AMERICAN APPAREL: Resumes Talks With Potential Buyers
-----------------------------------------------------
The American Bankruptcy Institute, citing Laurent Hirsch and
Jessica Dinapoli of Reuters, reported that American Apparel LLC has
resumed talks with at least two potential bidders for the U.S. teen
clothing retailer, after bankruptcy sale negotiations with brand
licensor Authentic Brands Group LLC stalled, a source close to the
company said.

According to the report, American Apparel is looking for a buyer as
it prepares for its second bankruptcy in as many years.  Declaring
bankruptcy would allow any buyer of the Los Angeles company to
avoid tens of millions of dollars in liabilities, including leases
for around 140 stores in the United States and Canada, the report
related.

The company is discussing a bankruptcy sale to brand licensor
Sequential Brands Group Inc and financial services company B. Riley
Financial Inc, among others, the report further related, citing the
source.

American Apparel had been close to agreeing to a sale to Authentic
Brands and it remains interested, the people said, the report
related.

If American Apparel does not come to an agreement with a buyer, it
will file for bankruptcy and run a sale process after, the people
said, the report noted.  Any potential deal to sell its business in
the United States must ensure that American Apparel continues to
manufacture in that country, despite cheaper alternatives overseas,
the people said, the report said.

Talks with all potential buyers may still fall apart and new
bidders may emerge, the people cautioned, the report added.

ATO RESTAURANT: Resolves Receivables Dispute With Rewards Network
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Mary Kay Vyskocil on Nov. 2, 2016, approved a stipulation
that resolves a dispute between the debtor ATO Restaurant
Associates LLC and secured creditor Rewards Network Establishment
Services Inc., regarding access and turnover of receivables
generated by Rewards Network's loyalty program.

A motion to (i) prohibit the Debtor from using cash collateral (ii)
compel the Debtor to surrender property and (iii) compel the Debtor
to provide accounting was filed by secured creditor Rewards Network
on Aug. 29, 2016.

On Sep. 9, 2016, the Debtor filed its objection to Rewards
Network's motion.

On Sept. 12, 2016, counsel for 3 East 54th New York LLC (the
"Landlord") filed a declaration in opposition to Rewards Networks'
motion.

Pursuant to 11 U.S.C. Sec. 362, 363, 541, and 543, the Parties
subsequently entered into a stipulation to resolve the Motion and
the Objection, agreeing to the turnover of certain accounts
receivable purchased by Rewards Network and for the continuation of
marketing and loyalty services to be provided by Rewards Network.

No objection was filed against the compromise.

                          Rewards Network

Rewards Network is a company that provides its members with
incentives and rewards through loyalty programs it operates when
its members dine at participating restaurants. Rewards Network
provides marketing and advertising of its participating restaurants
to its member base in order to encourage members to dine at the
participating restaurants.  Rewards Network also contracts with
participating restaurants and purchases future accounts receivables
generated by Rewards Network's members as well as other customers.

On March 2, 2016, the Debtor and Rewards Network entered into the
Rewards Network Receivables Purchase and Marketing Agreement the
("Agreement"), whereby Rewards Network asserts that it purchased
certain future credit card receivables (the "Receivables") and
agreed to provide marketing and other services to the Debtor.

Pursuant to the Agreement, upon receipt of the Purchase Price,
Rewards Network claims that it became the owner of the Receivables,
and the Debtor would have no ownership rights in the Receivables.
Pursuant to the Agreement, the Debtor agreed that Rewards Network
would take delivery of the Receivables as they are generated in the
ordinary course of the Debtor's business.  Under the Agreement, the
Receivables are paid to Rewards Network via an automated clearing
house ("ACH") debit.  Under the Agreement, Rewards Network also
performs marketing services and offers Rewards Network's members
incentives to dine at the Debtor's restaurant, such as cash back
rewards or frequent flyer miles.

To secure certain obligations owing under the Agreement, the Debtor
granted Rewards Network a blanket lien and security interest in all
of the Debtor's personal property, tangible and intangible
(collectively, the "Collateral"), including: all equipment,
furniture, artwork, inventory, instruments, investment property,
documents, general intangible, deposits, contract rights,
filenames, trademarks, patents, supporting obligations, payment
intangibles, chattel paper, commercial tort claims, licenses,
vendor licenses, permits, franchise agreements, payments due from
creditor card and bank card companies or processors, accounts
receivable, accounts, leases, deposits accounts, refunds or bonds
…See Agreement, p. 6.  The Debtor disputes that Rewards Network's
lien in the Collateral has become effective.

To provide notice of its purchase of the Receivables and to perfect
its lien in the Debtor's assets, on March 3, 2016, Rewards Network
filed a UCC Financing Statement with the New York Department of
State at File No. 201603035255479 (the "UCC Financing Statement").
The Agreement, the UCC Financing Statement, and any and all
amendments or modifications to any of the foregoing may be referred
to collectively hereinafter as the "RN Documents."

Accordingly, Rewards Network asserts that it is the rightful owner
of the Receivables and the Receivables are not property of the
Debtor's bankruptcy estate under Section 541 of the Bankruptcy
Code.

Postpetition, the Debtor failed to turnover to Rewards Network at
least $10,608 in Receivables generated postpetition between July 7
and July 11, 2016.

The Debtor continues to generate Receivables that Rewards Network
claims that it owns through the ordinary course operation of the
Debtor's Restaurant.

The Debtor desires to continue receiving the marketing services
from Rewards Network under the Agreement.

                        Terms of Stipulation

The Bankruptcy Court has approved a stipulation that provides:

   A. Turnover of Property. Upon entry of the Order, the Debtor
will immediately turn over to Rewards Network $10,000 (the "Partial
Cure Amount").  The balance of outstanding Receivables that the
Debtor has generated postpetition and which have not been turned
over to Rewards Network will be reloaded into the Agreement and
shall be payable to Rewards Network in connection with the Debtor's
performance under the Agreement on a going forward basis as
provided in this Order.

   B. Ongoing Performance By Debtor And Rewards Network.  Effective
as of Sept. 15, 2016, the Debtor will perform all of its
obligations owing under the Agreement, including continuing
turnover of the Receivables owned by Rewards Network, on a going
forward basis.  The percentage of Card Receivables will be debited
from the Debtor's account on the daily or weekly basis as provided
in the agreement.  The agreement calls for 9% of credit card
receipts to be remitted.  By way of example, if the Debtor collects
$2000 of Card Receivables, $180 would be debited and paid to
Rewards Network a few days later.  So long as the Debtor does not
breach the Agreement after the date of entry of the Stipulation and
Order, Rewards Network will provide the marketing services for the
Debtor as described in the Agreement.  If, at any time, the Debtor
fails to turn over the Receivables owned by Rewards Network,
Rewards Network will be entitled to cease all marketing services on
behalf of the Debtor unless and until the Debtor fully cures such
breach.

   C. Authorized Withdrawals/Payments. Rewards Network is
authorized to process ACH debits from the Debtor's bank account
(debtor-in-possession account or otherwise) for the turnover of the
Receivables (including the Partial Cure Amount).  The Debtor is
required to provide to Rewards Network all credit card processor
and bank information required to permit Rewards Network to process
the debits from its designated account no later than Sept. 15,
2016.

   D. Further, nothing in this order shall be deemed to prime or
reorder the prepetition lien rights of the Landlord, including in
any security deposit held by Landlord as of the Petition Date, to
the extent such rights are senior and superior to any lien and
security interest held by Rewards Network.

   E. Reports. The Debtor will respond promptly to any request for
accountings or other financial information from Rewards Network and
will provide copies of its bank statements and books and records to
Rewards Network upon three business days' notice.

   F. Rights Reserved. Nothing contained in the Order will
prejudice the rights of Rewards Network to (i) seek further relief
from the automatic stay of Section 362(a) of the Bankruptcy Code;
(ii) oppose confirmation of any plan of reorganization filed by the
Debtor or any other party in interest; (iii) oppose approval of any
postpetition financing; (iv) seek a dismissal of the Debtor's
Bankruptcy Case; or (v) seek any other relief that Rewards Network
may deem necessary and appropriate under the circumstances.

BERNARD L. MADOFF: California Gets $15M in Fraud Recovery Effort
----------------------------------------------------------------
The American Bankruptcy Institute, citing Don Thompson of The
Associated Press, reported that California will recover $15 million
related to the massive Ponzi scheme engineered by Bernard Madoff as
part of a larger agreement liquefying the $277 million estate of a
Beverly Hills investment adviser, officials said.

According to the report, the settlement ends a 7-year-old lawsuit
filed by the state attorney general against Stanley Chais, who
charged what officials called astronomical fees to invest hundreds
of millions of dollars from more than 460 often-elderly victims.

Chais, who died in 2010, collected nearly $270 million in fees
between 1995 and 2008 while presenting himself as an "investment
wizard," the report related, citing a lawsuit filed in Los Angeles
Superior Court.

In fact, he simply funneled investors' life savings to Madoff, the
one-time Nasdaq chairman whose $20 billion financial pyramid
collapsed in 2008, the report further cited the lawsuit as saying.

The agreement filed in federal bankruptcy court in New York settles
separate lawsuits against Chais that trustees said will essentially
turn over his estate to his victims, the report said.

That includes nearly $263 million in cash and other assets to the
Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities customer fund, and another
$15 million that will be administered by the California attorney
general's office to pay claims by investors in companies operated
by Chais, the report added.

Investors in the Chais-operated companies cannot lay claim to the
larger amount of money because that share will go to those who
invested directly with Madoff, not through so-called "feeder
funds," the report cited Kristin Ford, a spokeswoman for California
Attorney General Kamala Harris, as saying.

                    About Bernard L. Madoff

Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities LLC and Bernard L. Madoff
orchestrated the largest Ponzi scheme in history, with losses
topping US$50 billion.  On Dec. 15, 2008, the Honorable Louis A.
Stanton of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of
New
York granted the application of the Securities Investor Protection
Corporation for a decree adjudicating that the customers of BLMIS
are in need of the protection afforded by the Securities Investor
Protection Act of 1970.  The District Court's Protective Order (i)
appointed Irving H. Picard, Esq., as trustee for the liquidation
of
BLMIS, (ii) appointed Baker & Hostetler LLP as his counsel, and
(iii) removed the SIPA Liquidation proceeding to the Bankruptcy
Court (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Adv. Pro. No. 08-01789) (Lifland, J.).  Mr.
Picard has retained AlixPartners LLP as claims agent.

On April 13, 2009, former BLMIS clients filed an involuntary
Chapter 7 bankruptcy petition against Bernard Madoff (Bankr.
S.D.N.Y. 09-11893).  The petitioning creditors -- Blumenthal &
Associates Florida General Partnership, Martin Rappaport
Charitable Remainder Unitrust, Martin Rappaport, Marc Cherno,
and Steven Morganstern -- assert US$64 million in claims against
Mr. Madoff based on the balances contained in the last statements
they got from BLMIS.

On April 14, 2009, Grant Thornton UK LLP as receiver placed Madoff
Securities International Limited in London under bankruptcy
protection pursuant to Chapter 15 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code
(Bankr. S.D. Fla. 09-16751).  The Chapter 15 case was later
transferred to Manhattan.  In June 2009, Judge Lifland approved
the
consolidation of the Madoff SIPA proceedings and the bankruptcy
case.

Judge Denny Chin of the U.S. District Court for the Southern
District of New York on June 29, 2009, sentenced Mr. Madoff to 150
years of life imprisonment for defrauding investors in United
States v. Madoff, No. 09-CR-213 (S.D.N.Y.).

From recoveries in lawsuits coupled with money advanced by SIPC,

BEVERLY GRUARIN: Disclosures OK'd; Dec. 6 Plan Confirmation Hearing
-------------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Jeffery A. Deller of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Western District of Pennsylvania has approved Beverly J. Gruarin's
amended disclosure statement explaining the Debtor's plan of
reorganization.

Dec. 6, 2016, at 10:00 a.m. is the date and time fixed for hearing
on confirmation of the amended Plan.

Nov. 29, 2016, is fixed as the last day for serving ballots which
are written acceptances or rejections of the Plan.  Nov. 29, 2016,
is also the last day for filing objections to the confirmation of
the Plan.

The Debtor's amended disclosure statement dated Aug. 26, 2016,
provides that Class 6 General Unsecured Claims are impaired and
will be paid an estimated total of $3,678.44.  This is an
estimated
1% of unsecured claims.  The Debtor will pay a lump sum payment of
$3,678.44 on or before the five-year anniversary of the effective
date of the Plan.  Unless after notice and a hearing the court
orders otherwise for cause, confirmation of the Plan does not
discharge any debt under Class 12 provided for in the Plan until
the Court grants a discharge on completion of all payments under
the Plan.

The Plan is to be implemented by the reorganized Debtor through
future income of the Debtor derived by her podiatry business and
additional income from working for a colleague who is seeking to
scale back his work.  The Debtor is also anticipating rental
income
from 730 Ohio River Boulevard property.

BILL HALL: Has Until December 15 to File Plan of Reorganization
---------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Craig A. Gargotta of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Western District of Texas extended the exclusive periods during
which Bill Hall, Jr., Trucking GP, LLC may file and solicit
acceptances to a plan of reorganization December 15, 2016 and
February 14, 2017, respectively.

As previously reported by the Troubled Company Reporter, the Debtor
sought for exclusivity extension telling the Court that its new
manager will need additional time to ascertain the best path
forward in the Debtor's relatively large chapter 11 case, since the
Debtor's previous manager had left affirmative control of the
company for the duration of the case.

BRIDGE CLUB: 11th Cir. Affirms Approval of Settlement w/ S. Rosen
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit
affirmed the judgment of the district court affirming the decisions
of the bankruptcy court to enforce a settlement agreement and a
plan of reorganization in the bankruptcy case of The Fort
Lauderdale Bridge Club, Inc., and preventing Samuel Rosen from
submitting any additional filings without advance permission from
the district court.

In May 2014, the bankruptcy court approved the settlement in which
Rosen received $75,000 in exchange for dismissing all pending
actions and releasing the Club, its leadership, and its attorney,
Thomas Louis Abrams, from liability for their actions in the
bankruptcy proceedings.  Later, the bankruptcy court confirmed a
plan of reorganization for the Club and then entered a final decree
that closed the bankruptcy case.

Rosen appealed the orders of enforcement and the fee award, and the
district court affirmed.  The district court ruled that Rosen
lacked standing to appeal the order that enforced the plan of
organization, that Rosen violated the agreement in which he
"relinquished any right he may have had to pursue a derivative
action," and that Abrams was entitled to recover his attorney's
fees and costs.  To deter Rosen from "filing additional frivolous
claims and appeals and to protect limited judicial resources," the
district court ordered the clerk to "not accept any further filings
or appeals from Rosen for which he had not first obtained
permission" to file.

The Eleventh Circuit held that Rosen's arguments fail and found
that district court did not err by affirming the order that
enforced the settlement agreement against Rosen.

The Eleventh Circuit declined to consider Rosen's challenges to the
fee award to Abrams and to the order prohibiting Rosen from
submitting additional filings in the district court.  The appeals
court pointed out that Rosen lists the two arguments in his
statement of the issues, but he fails to mention, much less
discuss, the issues in the argument portion of his brief.  A list
of "conclusory assertions" about which "[t]he brief makes no
argument and cites no authorities" fails to present a cognizable
issue for review on appeal, the appeals court said.

CAESARS ENTERTAINMENT: Reports Third Qtr. 2016 Financial Results
----------------------------------------------------------------
Caesars Entertainment Corporation on Nov. 7, 2016, reported third
quarter of 2016 results, which highlights certain GAAP and non-GAAP
financial measures on a consolidated basis.

Highlights

   -- Net revenues for Continuing CEC increased 3.0% year-over-year
to $986 million primarily attributable to strong growth in the Las
Vegas region.

   -- Net income for Continuing CEC, before including the effect of
noncontrolling interest, was $5 million compared to a net loss of
$756 million in the third quarter of 2015 and was largely due to a
$4.2 billion pre-tax gain on the sale of Caesars Interactive
Entertainment's ("CIE") social and mobiles games business,
partially offset by an accrual of $3.0 billion related to the
restructuring of Caesars Entertainment Operating Company, Inc.
("CEOC").

  -- Adjusted EBITDA for Continuing CEC grew 9.3% year-over-year to
$269 million.

  -- Cash ADR in Las Vegas was up 10.6% due to increased resort
fees, effective hotel yield management and improved pricing power
due to room product enhancements.

   -- On September 23, 2016, CIE sold its social and mobile games
business (the "SMG Business") for $4.4 billion in cash.

   -- In October, CEC and CEOC agreed to the terms of an amended
plan of reorganization and gained the support of CEOC's major
creditor groups, paving the way for a successful conclusion to
CEOC's bankruptcy in 2017.

"We achieved another solid quarter of performance, with a 3 percent
increase in revenues paced by strong results in Las Vegas, our
largest market," said Mark Frissora, President and Chief Executive
Officer of Caesars Entertainment.  "We also continued to expand
margins, a testament to the progress we have made to manage costs
effectively while delivering enhanced customer service. Going
forward, we remain focused on driving a balanced agenda of revenue
growth and productivity gains to increase margins and cash flow.
Our progress year to date gives us confidence that we are on the
right path as we strive to maximize value for our stakeholders."

Summary Financial Data

The results of CEOC and its subsidiaries are no longer consolidated
with Caesars subsequent to CEOC and certain of its United States
subsidiaries (the "Debtors") voluntarily filing for reorganization
under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code (the
"Bankruptcy Code") on January 15, 2015.  In October, all of CEOC's
major creditor groups signed amended restructuring support
agreements and have agreed to the terms of the latest plan of
reorganization.  This is a key milestone in CEC and CEOC's efforts
to implement a consensual restructuring and paves the way toward a
successful conclusion of CEOC's bankruptcy in 2017.

Supplemental materials have been posted on the Caesars
Entertainment Investor Relations website at
http://investor.caesars.com/financials.cfm.

Third Quarter of 2016 Financial Results

The Company said "We view each casino property as an operating
segment and currently aggregate all such casino properties into two
reportable segments based on management's view, which aligns with
their own ownership and underlying credit structures: CERP and CGP.
Through June 30, 2016, we aggregated the operating segments within
CGP into two separate reportable segments: Caesars Growth Partners
Casino Properties and Developments ('CGP Casinos') and CIE.  On
September 23, 2016, CIE sold its SMG Business for cash
consideration of $4.4 billion, subject to customary purchase price
adjustments, and retained only its World Series of Poker ('WSOP')
and regulated online real money gaming businesses.  The SMG
Business represented the majority of CIE's operations and is being
classified as a discontinued operation for all periods presented
effective in the third quarter of 2016.  After excluding the SMG
Business from CIE's continuing operations, CIE is no longer
considered a separate reportable segment from CGP Casinos based on
management's view.  Therefore, CGP Casinos and CIE have been
combined for all periods presented to form the CGP segment.  CEOC
was a reportable segment until its deconsolidation effective
January 15, 2015."

Continuing CEC

Net revenue for Continuing CEC increased 3.0% year-over-year to
$986 million primarily attributable to strong growth in the Las
Vegas region, partially offset by revenue declines in Atlantic City
and New Orleans and unfavorable year over year hold.  Income from
operations decreased $128 million to a loss of $44 million mainly
due to an increase in CIE stock-based compensation awards related
to the sale of CIE's SMG Business.  Net income, before including
the effect of non-controlling interest, increased to $5 million
from a net loss of $756 million mainly due to a $4.2 billion
pre-tax gain on the sale of CIE's SMG Business, which was partially
offset by a $3.0 billion accrual related to CEC's estimate of the
additional amount it will pay to support the restructuring of CEOC.
Property EBITDA increased 9.5% to $287 million and adjusted EBITDA
increased 9.3% to $269 million mainly due to higher revenues and
efficiency initiatives.

CERP

CERP owns and operates six casinos in the United States and The
LINQ promenade, along with leasing Octavius Tower at Caesars Palace
Las Vegas to CEOC and gaming space at The LINQ promenade to CGP.

Net revenues for the third quarter of 2016 were $569 million, up
5.0% primarily due to strong growth in gaming and hospitality
revenues in Nevada.  While CERP experienced strong hotel revenue
growth, there were over 32,000 room nights out of service in Las
Vegas in the quarter due to room renovations, primarily
concentrated at Paris Las Vegas.  Casino revenues were $289
million, up 2.8% from the prior year primarily due to higher gaming
volumes in Nevada as well as favorable year over year hold. Room
revenues rose 6.5% in the quarter to $147 million mainly due to
higher hotel rates, improved hotel yield and resort fees, which
drove a 12.0% increase in cash ADR.  Food and beverage revenues
were $134 million, down 2.2% largely due to less banquet business.

Income from operations increased 6.1% to $104 million, net income
increased $6 million to $6 million and adjusted EBITDA increased
8.3% to $170 million.  These increases were mainly due to higher
revenues and marketing and operational efficiencies.  Hold was
estimated to have a positive effect on operating income of between
$5 million and $10 million in the quarter relative to our expected
hold and between $0 million and $5 million when compared to the
prior year period.

CGP

CGP owns and operates six casinos in the United States, primarily
in Las Vegas, as well as CIE.  CIE owns and operates regulated
online real money gaming and the WSOP tournaments and brand.

Net revenues for the third quarter of 2016 were $422 million, a
1.0% increase primarily attributable to higher hotel revenues in
Las Vegas as well as increases in entertainment revenue mainly due
to the AXIS Theater at Planet Hollywood.  These positive drivers
were offset by unfavorable year over year hold and lower food and
beverage revenues.  Casino revenues were $253 million, down 3.1%
from the prior year mainly driven by unfavorable year over year
hold at Harrah's New Orleans due to exceptional hold in the same
period last year.  Room revenues increased 9.8% to $90 million
mainly due to higher hotel rates, resort fees and improved hotel
yield.  Food and beverage revenues were $67 million, down 9.5%
mainly due to less banquet business in Las Vegas.

Income from operations decreased $141 million to a loss of $109
million mainly due to an increase in stock-based compensation
expense and transaction costs related to the sale of CIE's SMG
Business.  Net income, before including the effect of
noncontrolling interest, increased from $21 million to $3.9 billion
mainly due to a $4.2 billion pre-tax gain on the sale of CIE's SMG
Business.  Adjusted EBITDA increased 2.0% to $100 million due to
higher revenues and efficiency initiatives.  Hold was estimated to
have a minimal effect on operating income relative to the Company's
expected hold and an unfavorable effect of between $5 million and
$10 million when compared to the prior year period.

CEOC and CES

CEOC owns and operates 19 casinos in the United States and nine
internationally, most of which are located in England, and manages
13 casinos, which include the six CGP casinos and seven casinos for
unrelated third parties.

Caesars Enterprise Services ("CES") is a joint venture among CERP,
CEOC, and a subsidiary of CGP that provides certain corporate and
administrative services to their casino properties.

Effective October 2014, substantially all of the Company's
properties are managed by CES with the remaining properties to be
transitioned upon regulatory approval.  Prior to this, its
properties were managed by CEOC.

Cash and Available Revolver Capacity

The Company said "CEC is primarily a holding company with no
independent operations, employees, or material debt issuances of
its own.  CEC's primary assets as of September 30, 2016, consist of
$188 million in cash and cash equivalents and its ownership
interests in CEOC, CERP and CGP.  CEC's cash includes $107 million
held by insurance captives.  Each of the subsidiary entities
comprising Caesars Entertainment's consolidated financial
statements have separate debt agreements with restrictions on usage
of the respective entity's capital resources.  CGP is a variable
interest entity that is consolidated by Caesars Entertainment, but
is controlled by its sole voting member, Caesars Acquisition
Company ('CAC').  CAC is a managing member of CGP and therefore
controls all decisions regarding liquidity and capital resources of
CGP.  CEOC was deconsolidated effective January 15, 2015."

"CEC has limited unrestricted cash available to meet its financial
commitments, primarily resulting from significant expenditures made
to defend against litigation related to the CEOC restructuring and
to support a plan of reorganization for CEOC. While the cash
forecast at CEC currently contemplates liquidity to be sufficient
through December 31, 2016, the CEC cash balance will be consumed by
expenses associated with the CEOC restructuring unless we identify
additional sources of liquidity to meet CEC's ongoing obligations
as well as to meet its commitments to support the CEOC
restructuring.  The completion of the merger with CAC is expected
to allow CEC to fulfill its financial commitments in support of the
restructuring; under the terms of the restructuring, all related
litigation is expected to be resolved; and CEC has been allotted a
portion of the proceeds from the sale of CIE's SMG Business to fund
certain expenses incurred related to the restructuring.  If CEC is
unable to obtain additional sources of cash when needed, in the
event of a material adverse ruling on one or all of our ongoing
litigation matters, or if CEOC does not emerge from bankruptcy on a
timely basis on terms and under circumstances satisfactory to CEC,
it is likely that CEC would seek reorganization under Chapter 11 of
the Bankruptcy Code."

CCH JOHN EAGAN: Court Partly Grants Bid to Dismiss Fannie Mae Suit
------------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Erik P. Kimball of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the
Southern District of Florida, West Palm Beach Division, dismissed
the adversary proceeding captioned FANNIE MAE, Plaintiff, v. CCH
JOHN EAGAN II HOMES, L.P., Defendant, Adv. Proc. No. 16-01183-EPK
(Bank. S.D. Fla.), only to the extent it requests relief based on
res judicata and/or the Rooker-Feldman doctrine.

In this adversary proceeding, Fannie Mae seeks a declaratory
judgment to the effect that the Replacement Reserve is not property
of the bankruptcy estate, that the debtor has no interest in the
Replacement Reserve and is not entitled to any disbursements from
the Replacement Reserve as a result of the debtor's defaults under
the Fannie Mae loan documents, and that Fannie Mae is free to apply
the Replacement Reserve to its claim. In the alternative, Fannie
Mae seeks a declaratory judgment to the effect that the debtor's
request to use the Replacement Reserve is barred by res judicata
and/or the Rooker-Feldman doctrine. Lastly, in the alternative,
Fannie Mae seeks a determination that Fannie Mae is entitled to
setoff or recoupment of the Replacement Reserve against its claim.

Although not directly relevant to the present matter, on April 26,
2016, the debtor filed an adversary proceeding against Fannie Mae.
Stating claims based in breach of contract, breach of the covenant
of good faith and fair dealing, wrongful foreclosure, and a Georgia
statutory claim for wrongful procurement of injury, the debtor
seeks a monetary judgment against Fannie Mae. The complaint was
later amended to include a count objecting to Fannie Mae's claim in
this case.

The debtor's previous motion to compel Fannie Mae to disburse funds
from the Replacement Reserve is no longer pending. However, the
debtor filed a chapter 11 plan in which the debtor proposes to use
the lion's share of the Replacement Reserve upon the effective date
of the plan.

The debtor has moved to dismiss this adversary proceeding.  Judge
Kimball held that to a great extent, the arguments presented by the
parties are so detached from a basic understanding of bankruptcy
law that the Court is compelled first to address some central
tenets of bankruptcy jurisdiction and the scope of the Bankruptcy
Code.

The debtor argues that the complaint "lacks clarity as to whether
Fannie Mae is seeking relief pursuant to Fed. R. Bankr. P. 7001(2)
or 7001(9)."  Judge Kimball pointed out that, first, it is not
necessary for a plaintiff to allege that it is seeking relief under
any specific subsection of Bankruptcy Rule 7001, which governs what
must be brought by complaint (adversary proceeding) rather than by
motion (contested matter). In any case, it is obvious that Fannie
Mae is seeking both a ruling with regard to an interest in property
under subsection (2) and a declaratory judgment under subsection
(9), and there is no reason a party may not seek such relief, the
judge said.  Amazingly, the debtor argues that Fannie Mae "has not
sought a declaratory judgment." Yet the title of the complaint, the
allegations and argument presented in the complaint, and the
request for relief clearly seek a declaratory judgment, the judge
further pointed out.

Based on the documents now before the Court, it appears that the
Replacement Reserve is property of the bankruptcy estate, Judge
Kimball held.  Fannie Mae holds only a perfected lien on the
Replacement Reserve. Even if the debtor defaulted under the loan
documents prior to filing this case, Fannie Mae did not apply the
Replacement Reserve in partial satisfaction of its claim as it
might have done. And the loan documents do not provide that the
Replacement Reserve automatically becomes property of Fannie Mae
upon a default by the debtor. Indeed, as of the petition date the
debtor retained a remainder interest in the Replacement Reserve,
which would be returned to the debtor if Fannie Mae was paid in
full.

On the other hand, the Replacement Reserve remains subject to a
valid, perfected security interest, the judge said.  The agreement
entered into in connection with the Replacement Reserve contains a
grant of a security interest in that fund, and perfection is
obtained by possession. Thus, based on the documents now before the
Court, while the Replacement Reserve is property of the estate, the
debtor may not use it unless Fannie Mae is accorded adequate
protection, or the use is set out in a plan otherwise confirmable
under 11 U.S.C. Section 1129, Judge Kimball concluded.  The Court
makes no finding in this regard as the matter has yet to be
presented for summary judgment or tried, and the evidence presented
may affect the Court's final ruling.

CF INDUSTRIES: S&P Retains 'BB+' Rating on Unsecured Debt
---------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said that it is assigning its 'BBB' issue-level
rating to CF Industries Inc.'s proposed $1.25 billion senior
secured notes, with a '1' recovery rating.  The '1' recovery rating
indicates S&P's expectation of very high (90%-100%) recovery in the
event of a payment default.  S&P based these ratings on preliminary
terms and conditions.

CF Industries plans to use note proceeds to pay down approximately
$1 billion in unsecured notes.  In addition, the company is putting
in place a $750 million senior secured revolving credit facility to
replace its existing unsecured facility.

At the same time, S&P revised its recovery rating on the company's
unsecured debt to '4' from '3'.  The issue-level ratings on the
unsecured debt remain 'BB+'.  The '4' recovery rating on the
company's unsecured debt indicates S&P's expectation of average
recovery (lower end of the 30%-50% range) in the event of payment
default.

The ratings on CF Industries, including the 'BB+' corporate credit
rating, are unchanged.  The outlook is negative.

                        RECOVERY ANALSYIS

Key Analytical Factors:

   -- S&P has updated its recovery analysis to reflect the
      proposed $1.25 billion senior secured notes and the amended
      revolving credit facility, which is now a $750 million
      secured facility instead of a $1.5 billion unsecured
      facility.  S&P projects a full recovery for the senior
      secured notes and have assigned a '1' recovery rating to
      these notes.  The senior secured debt share the same
      collateral package, which S&P understands will capture the
      lion's share of the company's enterprise value, largely
      through pledges of a substantial portion of the stock of
      subsidiaries that hold the bulk of the company's production
      facilities and other material EBITDA-generating assets.
      Under S&P's notching guidelines, the rating on the senior
      secured notes is 'BBB'.

   -- The introduction of secured debt into the company's capital
      structure dilutes recovery prospects for bondholders of the
      unsecured debt under S&P's analysis, with projected
      recoveries slipping to the 30% to 50% range corresponding to

      a '4' recovery rating from the 50% to 70% corresponding to a

      '3' recovery rating.  The issue-level rating on the senior
      unsecured notes remains 'BB+' notwithstanding the change in
      the recovery rating to '4' from '3'.

Simplified waterfall:

   -- Simulated default year: 2021
   -- Projected emergence EBITDA/multiple: $750 million/at 5.5x
   -- Projected enterprise (recovery) value: $4.1 billion
   -- S&P's EBITDA assumption reflects what it would characterize
      as a cyclically stressed EBITDA level.
   -- Net enterprise value (after assumed administrative
      expenses): $3.9 billion.
   -- Assumed valuation split (collateral/noncollateral)*: 80%/20%

      ($3.1 billion/$785 million)
   -- Estimated senior  secured debt facility claims: $1.9 billion
   -- Recovery expectations ('1' recovery rating, 90% to 100%
      range)
   -- Remaining value for senior unsecured claims after
      satisfaction of secured claims ($1.9 billion) and adjustment

      for assumed pension liabilities at foreign nonguarantors
      ($150 million): $1.865 billion ($1.23 billion
      collateral/$635 million noncollateral)
   -- Estimated unsecured claims: $4.8 billion
   -- Recovery expectations for senior unsecured notes: ('4'
      recovery rating, lower half of the 30% to 50% range)

*Collateral value represents value attributable to CF Industries
and domestic subsidiary guarantors, as well as the value
attributable to pledges of stock of nonguarantor subsidiaries.
Noncollateral value represents value attributable to unpledged
stock of nonguarantor subsidiaries.

Debt instruments maturing before our hypothetical default in 2021
are assumed to be extended or refinanced on similar terms.

Estimated claim and other amounts have been rounded.  All estimated
debt claim amounts include an assumption for accrued but unpaid
interest outstanding at default.

CHAPARRAL ENERGY: Wants Exclusivity Extended, Plan Talks Underway
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Chaparral Energy, Inc. and its affiliated Debtors ask the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware to extend their
exclusive periods to file a chapter 11 plan and solicit acceptances
to the plan to January 11, 2017 and March 13, 2017, respectively.

The Debtors relate that they continue to work cooperatively with
their prepetition lenders and the ad hoc committee of bondholders
to finalize the terms of a restructuring support.  As a result of
such efforts, the parties reached an agreement in principal on the
framework for a consensual plan of reorganization, the Debtors add.


The Debtors have disclosed the high level terms of that agreement
in a Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on
Sept. 30, 2016 and presented the terms to the Court at the hearing
to consider the First Exclusivity Extension Motion on Oct. 13,
2016, and since that time, the Debtors, the Prepetition Lenders,
and the Ad Hoc Committee have continued to work diligently to
negotiate certain additional terms of a consensual plan.

While substantial progress has been made, the Debtors tell the
Court that the parties are still in the process of finalizing a
restructuring support agreement and certain ancillary documents
memorializing the final terms and conditions of a consensual deal.
Accordingly, the Debtors, the Prepetition Lenders, and the Ad Hoc
Committee have exchanged numerous drafts of the documents and have
made significant progress toward the resolution of the outstanding
issues.

The Debtors believe that extending the exclusive periods will
provide all parties involved in the negotiations the opportunity to
finalize the restructuring support agreement and will allow the
Debtors the time necessary to prepare and file a disclosure
statement and a plan of reorganization that will maximize the
interests of all of the Debtors' creditors and other parties in
interest.

According to the Form 8-K filing, the Company disclosed material
non-public information -- an Indicative Term Sheet -- which it
received in connection with the confidential discussions that have
taken place between:

     -- certain holders of the Company's senior notes, and

     -- certain lenders under the Company's Eighth Restated Credit
Agreement, dated as of April 12, 2010, with JPMorgan Chase Bank,
N.A., as Administrative Agent and each of the Lenders named
therein, as amended, and

     -- their respective financial and legal advisers

regarding a potential refinancing or restructuring of the Company's
debt.

On September 30, 2016, the Company, certain members of the steering
committee of the Lenders and the Ad Hoc Committee reached a
non-binding agreement in principle regarding a potential
restructuring of the Company's debt in conjunction with the
Company's plan to reorganize through a plan of reorganization.
According to documents disclosed with the Securities and Exchange
Commission that day, the parties mulled an exit facility consisting
of $225 million in RBL (first out) and $150 million in term loans
(second out).  The RBL cannot be refinanced without refinancing the
Term Loan.  The RBL will have a first redetermination date of the
Spring of 2018.  The term loan will have an amortization schedule
of 1% , 1% , 3% and 5%.

The Company disclosed in its quarterly report on Form 10-Q dated
Nov. 9, that provisions of the potential Restructuring include that
the plan of reorganization will provide for, among other things,
the full equitization of the Debtors' approximately $1.2 billion of
outstanding unsecured notes for 100% of the new ownership interests
in the reorganized debtors, subject to dilution from:

     (i) a $50 million rights offering to be backstopped by certain
of the Company's noteholders,

    (ii) an incentive plan for the benefit of new management of the
reorganized debtors, and

   (iii) additional terms acceptable to the Lenders and the Ad Hoc
Committee.

The potential Restructuring also contemplates that the Lenders'
claims against the Company will be partially paid down on the
effective date of the Debtors' plan of reorganization, with the
remaining $375 million outstanding to be restructured into a
four-year, $225 million first-out revolving loan and $150 million
second-out term loan.

According to the 10-Q report, the exit financing will require the
Company to enter into derivative contracts to hedge its future
estimated production volumes from proved developed producing
reserves at a minimum level of 80% in the first year, 60% in the
second year and 40% in the third year. The potential Restructuring
is subject to execution and delivery of definitive documentation,
and there can be no assurances that such definitive documentation
will be finalized or that the terms and conditions thereof will not
differ materially from the terms and conditions of the potential
Restructuring.

The Indicative Term Sheet, filed on Sept. 30, contains descriptions
of a non-binding agreement in principle among the Noteholders and
certain members of a steering committee of the Lenders with respect
to a potential Transaction.  The Indicative Term Sheet does not
contain all of the terms and conditions that are applicable to a
potential Transaction.  A copy of the Indicative Term Sheet is
available at https://is.gd/AhPkMH

The Company also filed, along with the Term Sheet, projections over
its reserved value, a copy of which is available at
https://is.gd/Do8pDW

CHEDDAR'S CASUAL: Moody's Assigns B3 CFR; Outlook Stable
--------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned first time ratings to Cheddar's
Casual Cafe, Inc. including a B3 Corporate Family Rating, B3-PD
Probability of Default Rating and B3 senior secured bank facility
rating.  The rating outlook is stable.

Cheddar's plans to raise a $370 million bank facility, made up of a
$35 million 5-year senior secured revolver and $335 million 7-year
senior secured term loan B.  The proceeds of the term loan will be
used to acquire 44 Cheddar's restaurants from its largest
franchisee, refinance $116 million of existing debt and pay fees
and expenses.

"In our view, it is important in the casual dining segment for
restaurant chains to maintain quality and consistency across all
restaurants, franchised or company owned.  We believe the
acquisition of the 44 franchised restaurants -- about 25% of its
total store base -- will bring significant benefits to Cheddar's,"
stated Peter Trombetta, an AVP-Analyst at Moody's.

These rating actions were taken:

Assignments:

Issuer: Cheddar's Casual Cafe, Inc
  Probability of Default Rating, Assigned B3-PD
  Corporate Family Rating, Assigned B3
  $35 million 5-year Senior Secured Revolver, Assigned B3 (LGD3)
  $335 million 7-year Senior Secured Term Loan B, Assigned B3
   (LGD3)

Outlook Actions:

Issuer: Cheddar's Casual Cafe, Inc
  Outlook, Assigned Stable

                        RATINGS RATIONALE

The B3 Corporate Family Rating reflects Cheddar's small number of
stores (165 restaurants company owned and franchised) and
geographic concentration which exposes the company to greater risks
than a larger more geographically diverse restaurant company.  The
rating also reflects the company's high leverage -- expected to be
about 5.6x at the end of 2017 -- given its small scale and modest
operating margins relative to rated peers. Improvement in the
company's metrics over the next 12 to 18 months is dependent upon
successful integration of the acquired restaurants, which carries
some risk.  Positive rating considerations include the benefits of
the acquisition of the franchised restaurants, its differentiated
positioning as a casual dining chain with made from scratch food at
a reasonable price and stable private equity ownership -- the
company has been owned by two private equity firms since 2006.
Under this ownership structure, the company has made only one
dividend since 2006 -- about $50 million -- and Moody's expects
this level of prudent financial policy will continue.

The stable outlook reflects Moody's expectation that the company
will be able to successfully integrate the acquired restaurants and
continue to improve its margins enabling the company to achieve
debt/EBITDA and EBIT/interest expense of about 5.6x and 1.4x,
respectively by the end of 2017.

Cheddar's has good liquidity.  Moody's expect the company will be
able to fund its debt service needs, maintenance and growth capex,
and mandatory amortization through internal cash sources over the
next 12 to 18 months.  The company is not expected to utilize the
$35 million revolver.  The company will be subject to a total net
leverage financial maintenance covenant, but only in the event that
borrowings under the revolver exceed a 30% threshold.  Moody's
expects the company will have adequate cushion under the covenant
if it were needed to be tested.  There are limited sources of
alternate liquidity as the company leases most of the land its
restaurants are located on.

The B3 rating on the bank facility -- the same as the Corporate
Family Rating -- reflects that it makes up the preponderance of the
company's debt capital structure.

Ratings could be upgraded if debt/EBITDA were sustained below 5.5x
and EBIT/interest improved to above 2.0x.  Any ratings upgrade
would also require the company maintain at least adequate
liquidity.  Ratings could be downgraded if debt/EBITDA were to
approach 6.5x or if the company's liquidity deteriorated.

Cheddar's Casual Cafe, Inc., based in Irving, TX, owns, operates
and franchises Cheddar's restaurants.  Pro forma for its announced
agreement to purchase 44 restaurants from its largest franchisee,
the company owns and operates 139 Cheddar's and franchises 26 more.
Cheddar's has been owned by two private equity firms since 2006.
The company generates pro forma annual revenue of approximately
$620 million.

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

DODGE CITY VETERINARY: Seeks Exclusivity Extension Thru Feb. 5
--------------------------------------------------------------
Dodge City Veterinary Hospital, Inc. asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court
for the Middle District of Louisiana to extend the exclusive period
within which the Debtor may file its Plan and the exclusive period
within which the Debtor may obtain acceptance of its Plan, for an
additional 90 days each, to Feb. 5, 2017 and April 6, 2017,
respectively.

The Debtor relates that it has negotiated and discussed with an
unrelated third party buyer, the terms of a Proposed sale, but did
not come to a definitive agreement yet.  However, the Buyer has
insisted on a short time frame for the Sale including submission of
the Debtors Disclosure Statement and Reorganization Plan by Aug.
31, 2016.

Subsequently, beginning on Aug. 15, 2016, Livingston Parish, where
the Debtor's business is located, experienced severe flooding --
the Debtor's building had considerable structural damage, and much
of its equipment, furniture and fixtures was damaged or destroyed,
and also, some business records were lost or misplaced --
disrupting the Debtor's business operations.

The Debtor also relates that the Buyer has expressed that it still
wishes to pursue the Sale but has suspended negotiations in the
meantime pending an assessment of the damage, determination of
insurance coverage, and other effects on the business.

Accordingly, the Debtor needs additional time to fully assess the
physical damage to and other effects on its business, including but
not limited to goodwill. The Debtor tells the Court that until the
assessment is complete, the Buyer and Debtor cannot finalize
negotiations for a sale to take place.

DOUBLE VISION: U.S. Trustee Unable to Appoint Committee
-------------------------------------------------------
An official committee of unsecured creditors has not yet been

8, according to a court docket.

                       About Double Vision Inc.

Double Vision Inc. sought protection under Chapter 11 of the
Bankruptcy Code (Bankr. S. D. W.V. Case No. 16-20560) on Oct. 4,

ENABLE MIDSTREAM: S&P Affirms 'BB+' CCR, Outlook Stable
-------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said it affirmed its 'BB+' corporate credit and
issue-level ratings on Enable Midstream Partners L.P. and revised
the outlook to stable from negative.

At the same time, S&P affirmed the 'B' short-term rating and '3'
recovery rating on the partnership's issue-level debt.  The '3'
recovery rating indicates S&P's expectation for meaningful (50% to
70%, in the upper half of the range) recovery in the event of a
payment default.

"The stable rating outlook reflects our expectation that Enable
will maintain adequate liquidity and adjusted debt to EBITDA in the
4x to 4.25x range for the remainder of 2016 and below 4x in 2017,"
said S&P Global Ratings credit analyst Mike Llanos.

S&P could lower the ratings if volumes decline such that adjusted
debt to EBITDA is sustained above 4.5x.  S&P could also lower the
rating if Enable's commodity exposure increases or the partnership
experiences operational setbacks that would weaken its liquidity.

S&P could consider higher ratings if the partnership is able to
improve its scale and percentage of fee-based cash flows while
maintaining adjusted debt to EBITDA below 3.5x.

ERICKSON INC: Files Voluntary Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Petition
------------------------------------------------------------
Erickson Incorporated, a global provider of aviation services, on
Nov. 9, 2016, disclosed that it and certain of its subsidiaries
filed voluntary petitions for relief under Chapter 11 of the United
States Bankruptcy Code in the United States Bankruptcy Court for
the Northern District of Texas, Dallas Division.

During the Chapter 11 process, Erickson will operate in the
ordinary course of business and with the same commitment to safety,
compliance, and customer service that its partners are accustomed
to.

The Company expects to file a consensual plan of reorganization
with the support of its major creditor constituencies within the
first 50 days of the bankruptcy case, which the Company anticipates
will dramatically reduce its total indebtedness and allow it to
exit bankruptcy with a stronger balance sheet in early 2017.

Concurrent with its Chapter 11 filing, Erickson has filed certain
customary "first day motions", including a new debtor in possession
financing from its first lien lenders and certain of its 2[nd] lien
bondholders, with the court to ensure a smooth transition into
Chapter 11.  Pending Court approval, the first day motions will
allow the Company to operate in the ordinary course and maintain
its critical customer and supplier relationships.

President and CEO Jeff Roberts said, "Unfortunately, Erickson is
not immune to the numerous business challenges currently facing the
helicopter industry which have placed downward pressure on
operating results and asset values.  Operational integrity and
safety continue to be our top priority, and this restructuring will
in no way interfere with our performance and commitment to customer
satisfaction.  We have examined a number of alternatives and are
convinced that a formal restructuring is the most effective path
forward.  We anticipate a controlled process that better positions
us to serve our customers.  We appreciate the work of our largest
creditors, board, investors, and employees who are committed to
transparent and timely communications with our customers,
prospects, vendors, suppliers, partners and key regulatory
agencies."

CFO, David Lancelot, commented, "We are fully supportive of a
creditor support agreement that certain of our first lien lenders
and second lien noteholders have entered into which is expected to
result in approximately $60 million in new financing from a group
of our noteholders.  This financing will provide sufficient
liquidity to fund ongoing operations in the ordinary course during
our restructuring.  We believe this agreement is indicative of
broad support for a consensual restructuring which will ultimately
provide greater liquidity by way of a delevered balance sheet.  We
believe that Erickson will emerge a financially stronger company at
the conclusion of an expeditious bankruptcy process."  

The restructuring is expected to preserve jobs for more than 700
employees and allow Erickson to continue to work with the vendors
and suppliers around the world that are so vital to its long term
success.  Erickson's economic impact in its home state of Oregon
accounts for nearly $500 million annually, with 300 of the
employees based in Oregon.

Haynes and Boone LLP is serving as the Company's legal advisor,
Alvarez & Marsal LLC as its restructuring advisor, and Imperial
Capital as its investment banker.

ERICKSON INC: Helicopter Manufacturer Files for Bankruptcy
----------------------------------------------------------
Erickson Incorporated, operator and manufacturer of the heavy-lift
S-64 Aircrane helicopter being used for military, humanitarian
relief and forest firefighting purposes, filed a voluntary petition
under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code in order to effectuate a
restructuring of its capital structure.

The Portland, Oregon-based company was joined in Chapter 11 by its
affiliates Evergreen Helicopters International, Inc., EAC
Acquisition Corporation, Erickson Helicopters, Inc., Erickson
Transport, Inc., Evergreen Equity, Inc. and Evergreen Unmanned
Systems, Inc.  The Debtors are seeking joint administration of
their cases under Bankr. N.D. Tex. Lead Case No. 16-34393.

As disclosed in the bankruptcy filing, the Debtors had outstanding
prepetition liabilities of approximately $561 million as of Oct.
31, 2016, consisting of: (a) $130.8 million in principal amount
under Erickson's first lien revolving credit facility; (b) $370.2
million in principal amount and accrued interest under Erickson's
second lien secured notes; (c) $10 million in aggregate principal
and accrued interest under Erickson's unsecured, subordinated
seller notes; and (d) $4 million in principal amount under a
promissory note to Bell Helicopter Textron Inc.  In addition,
Erickson owes approximately $46 million to various vendors.

David W. Lancelot, Erickson's chief restructuring officer, said in
an affidavit filed with the Court that the Debtors' profitability
has declined since 2013, causing a reduced availability under their
borrowing base and tightening of liquidity under their existing
first lien credit facility.  For the 12 months ended Dec. 31, 2015,
Erickson had an operating loss of $54.8 million, compared to
operating income of $47 million for the same time period in 2013.
For the six months ended June 30, 2016, Erickson had an operating
loss of $65 million.

Prior to the Petition Date, the Debtors faced a $14.1 million
interest payment obligation due on the Second Priority Notes last
Nov. 1, 2016, continuing decreased revenues, higher operating
losses, and were experiencing continued liquidity constraints due
to the availability requirements imposed by the existing first lien
lenders under the First Lien Credit Agreement.

"Erickson's financial performance has been negatively affected by
(i) reduced demand for its services, which is largely attributable
to the loss of Erickson's status as a small business, (ii)
sustained economic distress in the oil and gas industry, and (iii)
the continued reduction of DoD military activities in Afghanistan,"
Mr. Lancelot related.  

According to Mr. Lancelot, due to the reduction in the scope of the
United States Department of Defense's activities in Afghanistan and
the expiration of contracts in the Philippines and other locations,
the Debtors' global defense and security revenues decreased
approximately 32% in 2015 to $105.2 million.  Prior to Erickson's
disqualification as a small business, Erickson had secured eight of
the 12 available exclusive use contracts with the United States
Forest Service.

During 2015 and 2016, the Debtors implemented an integration and
consolidation plan in relation to their $298 million acquisition of
Evergreen Helicopters, Inc., reduced operational headcount,
refocused their business development efforts on positive margin
contracts, implemented energy reduction initiatives, utilized
enhanced sales and operations planning mechanisms, consolidated
management positions, and completed a comprehensive leadership
change across nearly all business segments and executive positions.
However, the Debtors said, despite their cost cutting efforts,
their revenues continued to decline.

                         DIP Facilities

The Debtors are seeking Court approval of post-petition financing
facilities.  The DIP Facilities have unique features including a
gradual "roll-up" of the Existing First Lien Obligations and two
different debtor-in-possession financing facilities provided by two
different lender groups.  The Existing First Lien Lenders are
providing a DIP revolving facility.  Certain second priority
noteholders are providing a DIP Term Facility in the amount of
$66,670,000.

Erickson needs funding to purchase the aircraft and related
equipment to perform under the VertRep Contract and earn
substantial revenue for the estate.  Under the VertRep Contract,
Erickson supplies a detachment of aircrew and maintenance
personnel, along with two helicopters and related equipment to the
United States.

"I believe the financial terms and covenants of the DIP Facility
are reasonable under the circumstances for financing of this kind
-- notably, a junior postpetition financing behind a significant
amount of first lien secured debt," said Mr. Lancelot.

Specific to the Chapter 11 cases, the DIP Facility sets certain
milestones for confirmation of a plan of reorganization and other
restructuring initiatives and entitles the DIP Lenders to certain
fees.  

                      Noncompliance Notice

On July 26, 2016, Erickson received two letters from the listing
qualifications staff of the NASDAQ indicating that, (i) based upon
the closing bid price of Erickson Incorporated's common stock for
the last 30 consecutive business days, Erickson Incorporated no
longer met the requirement to maintain a minimum bid price of $1.00
per share, as set forth in NASDAQ Listing Rule 5550(a)(2), and (ii)
based upon Erickson Incorporated's market value of publicly held
shares for the last 30 consecutive days, Erickson Incorporated no
longer met the requirement to maintain a minimum market value of
publicly held shares of $5 million, as set forth in Nasdaq Listing
Rule 5450(b)(1)(C).  

Erickson has been provided a period of 180 calendar days, or until
Jan. 23, 2017, in which to regain compliance with Nasdaq Listing
Rule 5550(a)(2).

                      First Day Motions

In order to facilitate a smooth transition for the Debtors into the
Chapter 11 cases and minimize disruptions to their business
operations, the Debtors filed first day pleadings seeking the
Court's permission to, among other things, use existing cash
management system, pay employee obligations, prohibit utility
companies from discontinuing services and pay prepetition claims of
essential vendors.  A full-text copy of the declaration in support
of the First Day Motions is available for free at:

ERICKSON INC: S&P Lowers Rating to 'CCC-', On CreditWatch Negative
------------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings downgraded Erickson Inc. to 'CCC-' from 'CCC'
and placed the ratings on CreditWatch with negative implications.
At the same time, S&P lowered its issue-level rating on the
company's second lien senior secured notes to 'CCC-' from 'CCC'.
The '4' recovery rating on the senior notes remains unchanged,
indicating S&P's expectation for meaningful (50%-70%; higher half
of the range) recovery in the event of a default.

The downgrade reflects S&P's doubts that Portland, Ore.-based
Erickson has made its interest payment on its second lien senior
secured notes.  The company has experienced pressure on its
liquidity and had only $3.3 million of cash on hand at June 30,
2016.

S&P could downgrade Erickson to 'SD' or 'D' if the company has not
made its Nov. 1, 2016, interest payment and S&P is not confident it
will do so in the 30 day grace period.  S&P could affirm its
ratings on Erickson if S&P receives confirmation that the company
has made the interest payment that was due Nov. 1, 2016.


ESSEX CONSTRUCTION: Wants to Use First Trust Cash Collateral
------------------------------------------------------------
Essex Construction, LLC seeks authority from the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the District of Maryland to use cash collateral.

The Debtor intends to use cash collateral to pay for expenses
incurred in the ordinary course of business and  to pay costs of
administration of the chapter 11 case.  

A portion of the Debtor's labor union employees were not paid on
Nov. 4, 2016. The Debtor tells the Court that absent such authority
to use cash collateral, the Debtor's labor union employees are
likely not to report for work, or picket the job site, jeopardizing
the Debtor's ability to work on and conclude existing contracts.

The Debtor's proposed Budget provides for total expenses of
approximately $1,843,248, which includes payroll expenses amounting
to $1,109,852, commencing from the week ending Nov. 4, 2016 through
the week ending Nov. 25.

The Debtor relates that Essex Real Estate Holdings, LLC was formed
to purchase two condominium units located at 4 Taft Court, Suites
300 and 375, Rockville, MD.  Essex Real Estate closed on the sale
of the Rockville Properties by securing loans from First Trust
Bank, guaranteed by the Debtor, Roger R. Blunt and Jonathan Blunt.
The Debtor further relates that these loans are secured by the
Debtor's personal property, chattel paper, documents, general
intangibles, instruments, investment property, money, payment
intangibles, promissory notes, securities, software and supporting
obligations, including all cash and non-cash proceeds thereof.

According to the Debtor, First Trust has obtained a confessed money
judgment from the Montgomery County Circuit Court against the
Debtor and its co-defendants in the amount of $3,483,199.40 for the
default of the Suite 300 loan, and the amount of $1,335,911.14 for
the default of the Suite 375 loan, plus post judgment interest in
the amount of 10% per annum.

The Debtor relates that First Trust commenced foreclosure
proceedings against the Rockville Properties, and that the
foreclosure sale was completed and ratified by the Court on June 3,
2016.  

First Trust asserts a deficiency for the Rockville Properties in
the amount of approximately $3.9 million and has caused Writs of
Garnishment to be issued against several of the Debtor's bank
accounts, including its payroll and operating accounts held at
Manufacturing and Trust Bank.   

The Debtor proposes to provide First Trust with replacement liens
to the same extent, validity and priority as the lien it held
prepetition, which represents the full balance of all amounts due
to First Trust.  

The Debtor asserts that the continued operation of the Debtor's
business will preserve the value of the cash collateral that will
adequately protect First Trust.  The Debtor contends that without
authority to use cash collateral, it will be unable to operate its
business and its value will dramatically decline.

The Debtor contends that although First Trust has expressed its
willingness to consent to the use of cash collateral, it has not
provided its explicit agreement with the Debtor's proposed Budget.

GREENHUNTER RESOURCES: Plan Filing Deadline Moved to Nov. 14
------------------------------------------------------------
BankruptcyData.com reported that the U.S. Bankruptcy Court issued
an order approving GreenHunter Resources' second motion to extend
by 60 days the exclusive period during which the Company can file a
Chapter 11 plan and solicit acceptances thereof through and
including Nov. 14, 2016 and Jan. 11, 2017, respectively.  As
previously reported, "The requested extensions of the Exclusive
Periods will provide the Debtors and all other parties in interest
an opportunity to develop fully the grounds upon which serious
negotiations toward a Chapter 11 Plan can be based.  At this point,
the main issue in the case involves the lien of the Debtors'
prepetition secured creditor.  If that issue can be resolved, then
the Debtors will be able to file a liquidating plan, which would be
beneficial to the unsecured creditors.  Moreover, expiration of the
Exclusive Periods would likely lead to adversarial situations that
would cause deterioration in the Debtors' operations, the value of
their Estates and their ability to negotiate a consensual Chapter
11 Plan."

                  About Greenhunter Resources

GreenHunter Resources, Inc. and 12 of its affiliates, providers of

operating officer. The Debtors listed total assets of $36.29
million and total debts of $29.05 million. The Debtors have about

GUP'S HILL PLANTATION: Court Dismisses Rainsford's Suit vs. Apex
----------------------------------------------------------------
Judge David R. Duncan of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the
District of South Carolina granted Apex Bank's motion to dismiss,
with prejudice, the adversary case captioned Bettis C. Rainsford,
Plaintiff, v. Apex Bank, Defendant, Adv. Pro. No. 16-80104-DD
(Bankr. D.S.C.), finding that because the alleged agreement between
Apex and the plaintiff fails to satisfy the South Carolina Statute
of Frauds, the amended complaint fails to state a claim upon which
relief can be granted as a matter of law, and must be dismissed.

Mr. Rainsford commenced this action on May 31, 2016, in the
Edgefield County Court of Common Pleas, asserting causes of action
for breach of contract and enforcement of an agreement.  Apex
removed the proceeding to the Bankruptcy Court on July 14, 2016.
Apex Bank then filed a motion on August 26, 2016 to dismiss Bettis
C. Rainsford's amended complaint with prejudice.

The alleged agreement between Apex and Mr. Rainsford is subject to
the South Carolina Statute of Frauds since it involves transfer of
title of real property. Apex argues that because Mr. Rainsford has
failed to produce any writing signed by a representative of Apex
with authority to bind Apex, the alleged agreement does not meet
the requirements of the South Carolina Statute of Frauds.

HALLUCINATION MEDIA: Seeks Dec. 23 Plan Filing Period Extension
---------------------------------------------------------------
Hallucination Media, LLC asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Middle District of Florida to extend its exclusive period to file
a disclosure statement and plan of reorganization, from November 8,
2016 to December 23, 2016.

The Debtor relates that it has always taken the position that it
has a right of first refusal with respect to any lease or sale of
the Ritz Ybor property, and that this right has not been
established. The Debtor further relates that it remains in the
process of negotiating or scheduling mediation with respect to its
dispute with the owners of the Ritz Ybor property.  The Debtor
sayas that a resolution or settlement of these issues would
facilitate an agreed plan in this case, which would likely provide
full payment to creditors.

The Debtor tells the Court that it has been devoting all of the
time of its two principals to the reorganization of its business,
and that these efforts include the search for an alternate venue
and the expansion of other lines of business in which the Debtor
has previously been engaged.  The Debtor further tells the Court
that these efforts are ongoing and will facilitate efforts to
confirm a plan of re-organization, including the Debtor's ability
to make a significant payment to unsecured creditors and the
Debtor's ability to establish feasibility of any plan of
re-organization filed by the Debtor.

Industrial is a borrower traded in the secondary market at 92.15
cents-on-the-dollar during the week ended Friday, October 28, 2016,

losers among 247 widely quoted syndicated loans with five or more
bids in secondary trading for the week ended October 28.


HCSB FINANCIAL: Incurs $1.78 Million Net Loss in Third Quarter
--------------------------------------------------------------
HCSB Financial Corporation filed with the Securities and Exchange
Commission its quarterly report on Form 10-Q disclosing a net loss
available to common shareholders of $1.78 million on $3.17 million
of total interest income for the three months ended Sept. 30, 2016,
compared to a net loss available to common shareholders of $146,000
on $3.61 million of total interest income for the three months
ended Sept. 30, 2015.

For the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2016, HCSB Financial reported
net income available to common shareholders of $4.84 million on
$9.21 million of total interest income compared to a net loss
available to common shareholders of $944,000 on $10.46 million of
total interest income for the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2015.

As of Sept. 30, 2016, the Company had $381.10 million in total
assets, $344.51 million in total liabilities and $36.59 million in
total shareholders' equity.

On Feb. 10, 2011, the Bank entered into a Consent Order with the
FDIC and the South Carolina Board of Financial Institutions.  The
Consent Order conveyed specific actions needed to address the
Bank's current financial condition, primarily related to capital
planning, liquidity/funds management, policy and planning issues,
management oversight, loan concentrations and classifications, and
non-performing loans.  On Oct. 26, 2016, the Bank received
notification that the Consent Order was terminated by the FDIC and
the State Board and was replaced with certain regulatory
requirements and restrictions, including a requirement to continue
to improve credit quality and earnings, a restriction prohibiting
dividend payments without prior approval from the supervisory
authorities, and a requirement to maintain Tier 1 capital at least
equal to 8% and total risk-based capital at least equal to 10%.  As
of Sept. 30, 2016, the Company believes the Bank is in substantial
compliance with the new requirements and restrictions set forth by
the supervisory authorities.

As of Sept. 30, 2016, the Company had no available lines of credit.
The Bank's greatest source of liquidity resides in its unpledged
securities portfolio.  The book and market values of unpledged
securities available-for-sale totaled $67.3 million and $66.9
million, respectively, at Sept. 30, 2016.  This source of liquidity
may be adversely impacted by changing market conditions, reduced
access to borrowing lines, or increased collateral pledge
requirements imposed by lenders.  The Bank has implemented a plan
to address these risks and strengthen its liquidity position.  To
accomplish the goals of this liquidity plan, the Bank will maintain
cash liquidity at a minimum of 4% of total outstanding deposits and
borrowings.  In addition to cash liquidity, the Bank will also
maintain a minimum of 15% off balance sheet liquidity. These
objectives have been established by extensive contingency funding
stress testing and analytics that indicate these target minimum
levels of liquidity to be appropriate and prudent.

Comprehensive weekly and quarterly liquidity analyses serve
management as vital decision-making tools by providing summaries of
anticipated changes in loans, investments, core deposits, and
wholesale funds.  These internal funding reports provide management
with the details critical to anticipate immediate and long-term
cash requirements, such as expected deposit runoff, loan and
securities paydowns and maturities.  These liquidity analyses act
as a cash forecasting tool and are subject to certain assumptions
based on past market and customer trends.  Through consideration of
the information provided in these reports, management is better
able to effectively monitor the Bank's liquidity position.

"To better manage our liquidity position, management also stress
tests our liquidity position on a semi-annual basis under two
scenarios: short-term crisis and a longer-term crisis.  In the
short term crisis, we would be cut off from our normal funding
along with the market in general.  In this scenario, the Bank would
replenish our funding through the most likely sources of funding
that would exist in the order of price efficiency.  In the longer
term crisis, we may be cut off from several of our normal sources
of funding as our Bank's financial situation deteriorated. In such
a case, we would utilize our unpledged securities to raise funds in
the reverse repurchase market or borrow from the FHLB.  On a
quarterly basis, management monitors the market value of our
securities portfolio to ensure its ability to be pledged if
liquidity needs should arise.

"We believe our liquidity sources are adequate to meet our needs
for at least the next 12 months."

                      About HCSB Financial

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

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

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

HOSTESS HOLDCO: S&P Raises CCR to 'B+' on Sale to Gores
-------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said that it upgraded its rating on Kansas City,
Mo.-based Hostess Holdco LLC, including the corporate credit rating
to 'B+' from 'B'.  S&P also assigned a 'B+' corporate credit rating
to the newly created public entity and parent company, Hostess
Brands Inc.  The outlook is stable.

At the same time, S&P assigned a 'BB-' issue-level rating to
Hostess Brand LLC's proposed $83 million senior secured incremental
first-lien term loan maturing in 2022 and a '2' recovery rating,
indicating S&P's expectation for substantial recovery (lower half
of the 70%-90% range) in the event of a payment default.  S&P
upgraded its existing $100 million revolving credit facility and
$925 million first-lien term loan issue-level ratings to 'BB–'
and maintained the '2' recovery rating in the lower half of the
70%-90% range.  S&P will withdraw its ratings on the second-lien
term loan, including the 'CCC+' issue-level rating and '6' recovery
rating upon close of this transaction.

The SPAC transaction will result in $670 million in new equity, of
which $217 million will be used to reduce the existing
$300 million second-lien term loan.  The remaining $83 million of
the second-lien will be refinanced into an incremental first-lien
term loan.  S&P estimates that the company will have $1 billion of
adjusted debt at close.

All ratings are based on preliminary terms and are subject to
review upon receipt of final documentation.  S&P will withdraw its
existing rating on the company's second-lien term loan when it is
repaid at the close of this transaction.

The upgrade reflects the company's debt reduction as part of this
transaction and S&P's expectation for financial policies to be
managed less aggressively as a public company, including debt to
EBITDA below 5x.  The company is repaying $217 million of debt with
proceeds from the SPAC transaction on its existing
$300 million second-lien term loan, which is above S&P's previous
expectations.  Pro forma for the debt repayment and the acquisition
of Superior Cake Products Inc., leverage for the last 12 months
ended June 2016 is about 5.5x, down from actual 6.5x.  S&P expects
leverage will fall slightly below 5x by the end of 2016 and be
managed in the 4x-5x range through less aggressive financial
policies including no near-term dividends or share repurchases.
S&P expects the company to seek mostly tuck-in acquisitions that
can be funded with internal cash flows and to use a combination of
equity and debt for any larger deals.  S&P had previously expected
leverage to be managed above 5x, as demonstrated by the company's
aggressive $905 million dividend during the past year.

The company is being taken public through an SPAC owned by The
Gores Group.  The company will still be largely owned (42%) by
existing financial sponsors Apollo and Metropoulos, which will have
one board seat each.  The founder of The Gores Group, Alec Gore,
will own 8% and have one board seat, with the remaining 50% being
owned by public shareholders as well as some private investors
including Gores' funds.  The remaining four board seats are filled
by independent directors.  S&P views Gores' ownership also as
private-equity.  Because the company is still over 40% owned by
financial sponsors, we believe financial policies will remain
aggressive but will likely manage to lower debt leverage at below
5x as a public company.

The transaction is also freeing up about $6 million in additional
cash flow through a reduction of 25 basis points (bps) in pricing
on the first-lien facilities.  Hostess continues to generate good
free operating cash flow and industry-leading EBITDA margins.  S&P
believes the company will be ahead of S&P's previous
high-single-digit revenue projection for 2016 as it has
successfully expanded its distribution into new channels and
customers, supported by new product introductions.  Therefore, S&P
is revising upward its base case for Hostess based on continued
low-double-digit percent revenue growth through June and the
Superior acquisition.  S&P's forecast for Hostess is based on these
assumptions:

   -- Revenue growth of mid-double–digit percent in 2016, above
      S&P's U.S. real GDP growth forecast of 1.5%, from increased
      penetration in existing and new channels and new product
      introductions.  S&P estimates lower revenue growth of 5% in
      2017 as increased penetration in existing channels begins
      to slow.

   -- Sustained above industry average EBITDA margins near 30% in
      2016 and 2017, recognizing that as the mix-shift changes as
      the company expands into lower margin channels such as
      foodservice, margins may come down slightly over time.

   -- Capital expenditures near $50 million in 2016, which
      includes investments for peanut butter capacity, dropping to

      $30 million in 2017, which is more normalized.  Positive
      free operating cash flow of at least $50 million per year
      for 2016 and 2017.

   -- Annual term loan amortization of about $10 million.  No
      additional large, debt-financed dividends or acquisitions.

Based on these assumptions, S&P expects leverage in the 4x-5x range
and funds from operations to total debt of 10%-12% for 2016 and
2017.

S&P expects the brand value of Hostess will continue to lead to
successful product launches in 2017, driving both revenue growth
and increased market share.  The company has been successful in
convenience stores, drug stores, and dollar stores, and will focus
on other channels, such as foodservice and club retail, to fuel
future revenue growth.  The company's direct-to-warehouse
distribution model, lower overhead costs, disciplined cost control,
and continued focus on productivity have resulted in
industry-leading EBITDA margins near 30%.  Since the relaunch of
the business, the company has re-established its brands and
regained good market share (16% currently).  However, its market
share is still below pre-bankruptcy levels, supporting its strong
growth prospects.  Hostess has the No. 2 position in U.S. sweet
baked goods, behind McKee Foods Corp.  Although Hostess has
expanded its customer base and increased its product offerings, S&P
expects it will continue to work on regaining market share. The
company has also begun shipping products internationally to Mexico
and Western Europe.

The business risk assessment is limited by the company's
participation in the fragmented and highly competitive snack cake
category (which is susceptible to changes in consumer preferences
and health and wellness concerns); its narrow business and product
focus; and its customer, brand, and geographic concentration.  S&P
believes when compared to peers with similar business risks,
Hostess is weaker due to its narrow product offering and smaller
revenue base.  S&P applies a modifier one notch downward to its
rating to reflect this.

S&P characterizes Hostess' liquidity as adequate.  S&P expects
sources of liquidity will exceed uses by well over 2x and will
continue to exceed uses if EBITDA declines by 30%.  However, S&P do
not feel that the company qualifies for a more favorable assessment
than adequate given S&P's view that its high debt level is not
indicative of prudent risk management, and it could not withstand a
high-impact, low-probability event without the need to refinance.
S&P also views the company's banking relationships as sound and its
standing in the credit markets as satisfactory given its relatively
smaller size and lack of bonds in the debt markets.

Principal liquidity sources:

   -- Full availability under its $100 million revolving credit
      facility due in 2020; and

  -- Positive FFO over $100 million.

Principal liquidity uses:

   -- Maintenance capital expenditures of $4 million;

   -- A manageable debt maturity schedule, with only about
      $10 million annually on the total debt; and

   -- Seasonal working capital peak requirement of $10 million.

Covenants

The first-lien term loans are covenant lite.  The revolver is still
subject to a springing max net first-lien leverage ratio of 7.3x
when borrowings excluding letters of credit exceed 30% or
$30 million.  S&P do not expect this covenant to be in effect given
that the company generates sufficient cash flow and will not have
to borrow for working capital use. If tested, the company will have
cushion of over 30%.

The stable outlook reflects S&P's view that Hostess will continue
to grow revenues in the mid-single-digit percent range through
increased distribution and new product offerings while maintaining
EBITDA margins near 30%.  S&P expects debt to EBITDA to be managed
under 5x and do not anticipate a large debt-financed dividend or
large acquisition in the next 12 months.

S&P could lower the rating if the company's financial policies are
more aggressive than S&P is forecasting, and it come to expect
leverage to be maintained over 5x.  This could occur if the company
issues debt to fund shareholder-friendly activities, including a
large dividend or acquisition.  S&P could also lower the rating if
the company experiences a large decline in consumption of its
products due to changing consumer preferences or increased
competition.  Gross margin contraction by more than 250 bps could
also lead to leverage over 5x.

Although unlikely over the near term, S&P could raise the rating if
Hostess continues to increase its market share, scale,
diversification, and financial leverage below 4x through less
aggressive financial policies.



ILLINOIS POWER: Dynegy Restructuring Transaction Launched
---------------------------------------------------------
Dynegy Inc. and Illinois Power Generating Company (Genco), an
indirect, wholly owned subsidiary of Dynegy, launched a
restructuring transaction on Nov. 7 with respect to Genco's
outstanding indebtedness (the Restructuring), consisting of either
(a) an out-of-court offer to exchange (the Exchange Offer) Genco's
outstanding 7.00% Senior Notes, Series H, due 2018, 6.30% Senior
Notes, Series I, due 2020 and 7.95% Senior Notes, Series F, due
2032 (collectively, the Genco Notes) for up to (i) $210.0 million
aggregate principal amount of new 7-year Senior Notes of Dynegy
(the Dynegy Notes), (ii) 10 million new warrants of Dynegy (the
Dynegy Warrants and, together with the Dynegy Notes, the Dynegy
Securities) and (iii) $130.0 million in cash (subject to reductions
for interest payments, the Cash Consideration and, together with
the Dynegy Securities, the Exchange Consideration) and solicitation
of consents (Indenture Consents) on behalf of Genco to proposed
amendments to the indenture governing the Genco Notes (the
Indenture Consent Solicitation) or (b) in the event that the
conditions to the Exchange Offer are not satisfied or waived, an
in-court restructuring of Genco pursuant to a prepackaged plan of
reorganization of Genco (the Plan), the votes for which are being
solicited concurrently with the Exchange Offer (the Plan
Solicitation).

The Restructuring reflects the terms of a restructuring support
agreement (the Support Agreement) among Dynegy, Genco, certain of
their affiliates and Eligible Holders of 69.9% in aggregate
principal amount of the outstanding Genco Notes (the Supporting
Noteholders).  Pursuant to the Support Agreement, the Supporting
Noteholders have agreed, subject to the terms and conditions
contained therein, among other things, to (1) support and take all
actions reasonably necessary to achieve the Restructuring,
including by tendering (and not withdrawing) their Genco Notes in
the Exchange Offer, consenting in the Indenture Consent
Solicitation and voting in favor of the Plan; (2) not support any
other plan or restructuring transaction or take any other action
that is inconsistent with, or would reasonably be expected to
impede, the Restructuring; and (3) not direct the trustee under the
indenture governing the Genco Notes to take any action inconsistent
with the Supporting Noteholders' obligations under the Support
Agreement.  Dynegy and Genco may not modify certain terms of the
Exchange Offer, including increasing the Minimum Participation
Threshold (as defined below), or the Plan without the consent of
some or all of the Supporting Noteholders.

THE EXCHANGE OFFER AND INDENTURE CONSENT SOLICITATION

Pursuant to the Exchange Offer, Eligible Holders of Genco Notes who
validly tender and do not validly withdraw their Genco Notes on or
prior to 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on December 6, 2016,
unless extended by Dynegy (such time and date, as the same may be
extended, the Expiration Date), and whose Genco Notes are accepted
by Dynegy, will receive the applicable consideration set forth in
the table available at https://is.gd/9VvuLJ

Completion of the Exchange Offer is subject to the satisfaction or
waiver of a number of conditions, including the receipt of valid
tenders (that are not validly withdrawn) from Eligible Holders
representing 97% or more of the aggregate principal amount of the
Genco Notes (the Minimum Participation Threshold).

Execution of the supplemental indenture containing the proposed
amendments in the Indenture Consent Solicitation will be subject to
certain conditions, including receipt by the relevant trustee of
certain legal opinions from counsel to Dynegy.  Accordingly, the
supplemental indenture may be executed by Genco and such trustee
upon or at any time after consummation of the Exchange Offer and
the proposed amendments will become operative upon execution of the
supplemental indenture.  If the proposed amendments become
operative, certain restrictive covenants and other provisions of
the indenture governing the Genco Notes will be amended or
eliminated with respect to any Genco Notes that remain outstanding
after consummation of the Exchange Offer.

The Exchange Offer is being made only (i) inside the United States
to holders of Genco Notes who are "qualified institutional buyers"
(as defined in Rule 144A under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as
amended (the Securities Act)) or who are "accredited investors" (as
defined in Rule 501(a) of Regulation D under the Securities Act) in
reliance on Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act and (ii) outside
the United States to holders of Genco Notes who are persons other
than U.S. persons (as defined in Rule 902 under the Securities Act)
in offshore transactions in reliance upon Regulation S under the
Securities Act (such holders, Eligible Holders).  The Dynegy
Securities have not been registered under the Securities Act or the
securities laws of any other jurisdiction and may not be offered or
sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable
exemption from registration requirements.

THE PLAN SOLICITATION

The Plan Solicitation is being made to all holders of Genco Notes
as of the October 28, 2016 record date (the Voting Record Date).
In the event that the Exchange Offer is not consummated for any
reason, but holders of Genco Notes voting to accept the Plan
constitute a majority in number of the holders of Genco Notes who
have voted on the Plan and hold at least 66.7% of the aggregate
amount of Noteholder Claims (as defined in the Offering Memorandum
and Disclosure Statement) held by holders of Genco Notes voting on
the Plan, then, subject to approval by Genco's board of directors,
Genco intends to commence a case under Chapter 11 of the United
States Code and pursue confirmation and consummation of the Plan.

If the Chapter 11 case is commenced and Plan becomes effective, (1)
holders of Genco Notes who tender their Genco Notes (in a process
subsequent to the expiration of the Exchange Offer) and certify
that they are Eligible Holders will receive, in exchange for their
claim (the principal amount of their Genco Notes plus the accrued
interest as of the filing date of the Chapter 11 case), their pro
rata share (across all Noteholder Claims) of (i) $100,693,750 of
cash consideration, (ii) $210.0 million of Dynegy Notes and (iii)
10 million Dynegy Warrants and (2) holders of Genco Notes who
tender their Genco Notes (in a process subsequent to the expiration
of the Exchange Offer) and certify that they are not Eligible
Holders (Non-Eligible Holders) will receive, in exchange for their
claim (the principal amount of their Genco Notes plus accrued and
unpaid interest as of the filing date of the Chapter 11 case), an
amount in cash equal to (i) their pro rata share (across all
Noteholder Claims) of $100,693,750 of cash consideration, plus (ii)
the principal amount of Dynegy Notes that such Non-Eligible Holder
would receive under the Plan if they were an Eligible Holder plus
(iii) their pro rata share (across all Noteholder Claims) of
$15,000,000 (representing the estimated value of the Dynegy
Warrants that Eligible Holders will receive under the Plan).

PARTICIPATING IN THE EXCHANGE OFFER AND INDENTURE CONSENT
SOLICITATION AND VOTING ON THE PLAN

The Exchange Offer and Indenture Consent Solicitation are being
made only to Eligible Holders, and the Plan Solicitation is being
made to all holders of Genco Notes.  The Exchange Offer, the
Indenture Consent Solicitation and the Plan Solicitation will
expire at the Expiration Date, unless extended by Dynegy.  Tenders
of Genco Notes in the Exchange Offer may be withdrawn and Indenture
Consents and ballots with respect to the Plan may be revoked on or
prior to the Expiration Date.

Eligible Holders will not be permitted to consent to the applicable
proposed amendments without tendering their Genco Notes in the
Exchange Offer, and Eligible Holders will not be permitted to
tender their Genco Notes for exchange without consenting to the
applicable proposed amendments.  Eligible Holders who validly
withdraw Genco Notes prior to the Expiration Date will be deemed to
have concurrently revoked the related Indenture Consents.

The tender of Genco Notes by an Eligible Holder and the delivery of
an agent's message will, upon consummation of the Exchange Offer,
constitute a release and discharge of certain claims the Eligible
Holder may have against Dynegy, Genco and certain of their
affiliates and other parties.  The Plan contains a substantially
identical release and discharge of such claims by all holders,
which will become effective upon the effectiveness of the Plan.

If the Chapter 11 case is commenced, additional information will be
provided to the holders with respect to the procedures that will be
required in order to receive Plan distributions.  Any holder who
fails to follow the required distribution procedures with respect
to the applicable Genco Notes on or prior to the 165th day after
the effective date of the Plan (or the next business day) will have
its Noteholder Claim and its distribution pursuant to the Plan on
account of such Noteholder Claim discharged and forfeited and will
not receive any distribution under the Plan.  Any property in
respect of such forfeited Noteholder Claims will revert to Dynegy
or Genco, as applicable.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

The Exchange Offer, Indenture Consent Solicitation and Plan
Solicitation are made only by, and pursuant to, the terms set forth
in the Offering Memorandum and Indenture Consent Solicitation
Statement and Disclosure Statement Soliciting Acceptances of a
Prepackaged Plan of Reorganization (the Offering Memorandum and
Disclosure Statement), and, as applicable, ballots and any
supplements thereto.  The information in this news release is

As reported by the TCR on June 17, 2016, S&P Global Ratings revised
its outlook on Illinois Power Generating Co. to negative from
stable.  At the same time, S&P affirmed the 'CCC+' corporate credit
rating and 'CCC+' ratings on the senior unsecured debt.

As reported by the TCR on Oct. 11, 2016, Moody's Investors Service

rating (PD) and senior unsecured rating of Illinois Power
Generating Company (Genco) to Ca from Caa3.  The speculative grade
liquidity rating is affirmed at SGL-4.  The rating outlook is

INNOVATIVE XCESSORIES: S&P Assigns 'B' CCR & Rates $400MM Loan 'B'
------------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said that it has assigned its 'B' corporate
credit rating to Huntsville, Ala.-based auto supplier Innovative
XCessories & Services LLC (IXS).  The outlook is stable.

At the same time, S&P assigned its 'B' issue-level rating and '3'
recovery rating to the company's proposed $400 million term loan
due 2022.  The '3' recovery rating indicates S&P's expectation that
debtholders would realize meaningful (50%-70%; upper half of the
range) recovery in the event of a payment default.

Additionally, S&P assigned its 'BB-' issue-level rating and '1'
recovery rating to the company's proposed $28 million cash flow
revolver due 2021.  The '1' recovery rating indicates S&P's
expectation that debtholders would realize very high (90%-100%)
recovery in the event of a payment default.

"The 'B' corporate credit rating reflects our belief that IXS--a
leading provider of vehicle customization services for the original
equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and aftermarket consumers--is a
relatively niche participant in the broader auto supplier market,"
said S&P Global credit analyst David Binns.  "Moreover, the company
sells products that we view as discretionary and must successfully
adapt to changes in consumer preferences to stay competitive."

The stable outlook on IXS reflects S&P's expectation that the
company will maintain its strong EBITDA margins while maintaining
or increasing its market share in a relatively flat North American
pickup truck market over the next year.

S&P could lower its rating on IXS if its EBITDA margins decline by
4% or more over the next 12 months, causing the company's
debt-to-EBITDA metric to exceed 5x.  This could be caused by
weaker-than-expected demand for the company's products due to a
weaker economic environment or a sharp increase in gas prices that
erodes the demand for trucks. This could also occur if IXS were to
lose a large OEM customer.

While unlikely, S&P could raise its rating on IXS during the next
12 months if the company diversifies its products and geographic
scope while sustaining its above-average EBITDA margins.  S&P would
also expect the company's financial sponsor to maintain leverage of
near 4x or lower.

IRISH BANK: Bid for Yahoo! To Turn Over Info Denied
---------------------------------------------------
In the case captioned In re: IRISH BANK RESOLUTION CORPORATION
LIMITED (IN SPECIAL LIQUIDATION), Debtor in a foreign proceeding,
Case No. 13-12159(CSS)(Bankr. D. Del.), Judge Christopher S.
Sontchi of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of
Delaware denied the motion filed by by Kieran Wallace and Eamonn
Richardson, the duly appointed and authorized Chapter 15 foreign
representatives of the debtor, Irish Bank Resolution Corporation
Limited (IBRC), for entry of an order pursuant to 11 U.S.C.
sections 542, 1521(a)(5) and 1521(a)(7) of the Bankruptcy Code,
directing Yahoo! Inc. to turn over to the foreign representatives
all electronically stored information contained in a certain Yahoo
account.

The motion is the last in a series of motions filed by the foreign
representatives in an effort to obtain information contained in the
Yahoo account with the email address abdrasim@yahoo.com, which is
allegedly maintained by one who goes by the name of "Abdullah
Rasimov".  Generally, the matter is related to a large-scale
litigation pending in Ireland (and other jurisdictions) involving
the liquidation of IBRC, the successor to Anglo Irish Bank
Corporation Limited and Irish Nationwide Building Society (the
"Irish Proceeding").

The primary issue is whether the Court should order an email
service provider to hand over contents contained in a private email
account after the account user evaded the proceeding and failed to
comply with several discovery orders.

Judge Sontchi denied the turnover motion, finding that the foreign
representatives failed to present sufficient evidence that proves
that the contents of the Yahoo account are part of IBRC's property
or relate to IBRC's property or financial affairs.  Accordingly,
Judge Sontchi held that the foreign representatives have not met
their burden of proof under the turnover provisions of the
Bankruptcy Code.  The judge further held that the Stored
Communication Act (SCA) prohibits, under the circumstances of this
matter, the disclosure of information from a private email account
without the actual user's consent.  Specifically, Judge Sontchi
found that the SCA and the case law interpreting it do not support
the notion of compelling an email service provider to disclose
electronically stored information based on a theory of imputed
consent or by designating a third-party as the "subscriber."

                   About Irish Bank Resolution

Irish Bank Resolution Corp., the liquidation vehicle for what was
once one of Ireland's largest banks, filed a Chapter 15 petition
(Bankr. D. Del. Case No. 13-12159) on Aug. 26, 2013, to protect
U.S. assets of the former Anglo Irish Bank Corp. from being
seized by creditors.  Irish Bank Resolution sought assistance
from the U.S. court in liquidating Anglo Irish Bank Corp. and
Irish Nationwide Building Society.  The two banks failed and were
merged into IBRC in July 2011.  IBRC is tasked with winding them
down and liquidating their assets.  In February, when Irish
lawmakers adopted the Irish Bank Resolution Corp., IBRC was
placed into a special liquidation in the Irish High Court to
complete liquidation and distribution of the two banks' assets.

IBRC's principal asset as of June 2012 was a loan portfolio
valued at some EUR25 billion (US$33.5 billion).  About 70 percent
of the loans were to Irish borrowers. Some 5 percent of the
portfolio was under U.S. law, according to a court filing.  Total
liabilities in June 2012 were about EUR50 billion, according
to a court filing.

Most assets in the U.S. have been sold already.  IBRC is involved
in lawsuits in the U.S.

IBRC was granted protection under Chapter 15 of the U.S.
Bankruptcy Code in December 2013.

Kieran Wallace and Eamonn Richardson of KPMG have been named the
special liquidators.

JEJP LLC: $900,000 Financing From Members Approved
--------------------------------------------------
Judge David R. Jones on Nov. 3, 2016, granted a second DIP
financing motion filed by JEJP, LLC d/b/a Precision Machined
Products, seeking leave to obtain $900,000 of postpetition
financing from Jesus Finol and Elias Abdallah, members of the
Debtor.

A copy of the Agreed Second Order approving the Postpetition
Financing is available at:

http://bankrupt.com/misc/txsb16-33646_58_JEJP_2nd_DIP_Ord.pdf

                      Terms of DIP Financing

On Aug. 4, 2016, the Court entered an Agreed Order Approving
Post-Petition Financing.  Under the First Financing Order, the DIP
Lender was to provide postpetition financing to the Debtor in an
aggregate amount not to exceed $600,000.  

The Debtor said it has used the entirety of those funds in moving
its equipment and operations to a new facility and bringing some,
but not all, of is equipment online to begin manufacturing product
for sale.  Once orders are received, it takes anywhere from six to
eight weeks to obtain the raw material and manufacture the parts.
After the parts are shipped to the customer, it takes between 70 to
75 days before payment is received.  Simply put, the Debtor
requires about four months' worth of orders in "backlog" to cash
flow its operation.  In order to bring the remaining equipment
online and to bridge the Gap Period, the Debtor requires additional
postpetition funding in an amount not to exceed $900,000.  

It is anticipated that the Debtor will have positive cash flow by
March of 2017 and no longer require postpetition funding.  To that
end, the Debtor entered into additional negotiations for DIP
Financing that will again be provided by its insiders, Jesus Finol
and Elis Abdallah.  The Debtor believes the DIP Financing is
sufficient to fund its operational needs not presently covered by
cash collateral and the Debtor's operations postpetition.  

The key terms of the proposed DIP Financing are:

   (i) Borrowing Mechanics.  The DIP Lender will provide
postpetition financing to the Debtor in an aggregate amount not to
exceed $900,000 (the "Maximum DIP Loan").

  (ii) Borrowing Authority.  The amount of the Maximum DIP Loan may
be borrowed or incurred upon entry of this Second Order, but
subject to the other terms of this Second Order.

(iii) Non-Default Interest Rate: None.

  (iv) Use of Proceeds.  The proceeds of the DIP Financing will be
used to bring its remaining equipment online, to pay for ongoing
obligations; to pay the Debtor's legal fees and expenses as
approved by the Court, and to pay U.S. Trustee fees and court
costs.

   (v) Payment Terms: The entire principal plus accrued interest,
will convert to an equity position in the reorganized debtor on the
effective date of the plan.  Each DIP Lender will receive one
membership interest in the reorganized debtor for each dollar in
DIP financing received by the Debtor.

  (vi) Right of First Refusal.  Prior to the Effective Date of the
Plan, Debtor shall not seek investment or funding from any other
source without first notifying DIP Lender and giving DIP Lender the
opportunity to participate.

(vii) Sale of Assets Subject to DIP Lender Liens.  In the event
that, prior to the Effective Date of the Plan, the Debtor proposes
to sell any of the DIP Collateral outside of the ordinary course of
business, the DIP Lender will have the right to credit bid on such
property under Section 363(k) of the Bankruptcy Code.

(viii) Assignment and Participation. DIP Lender will have the right
to assign all or a portion of its rights (but not its obligations)
under the DIP Facility, provided, however, that the assignee of any
such assignment will be deemed bound to the terms of this Final
Order and be deemed to have consented to the terms of the Plan.

  (ix) Marshalling; Contribution and Subrogation as Between
Obligors.  Effective upon entry of the Final Order, in no event
will the DIP Lender be subject to the equitable doctrine of
"marshaling" or any similar doctrine with respect to its DIP Lender
Liens.  Effective upon entry of this Final Order, in no event will
the "equities of the case" exception of Section 552(b) of the
Bankruptcy Code apply to the secured claims of the DIP Lender.

The Debtor's primary secured creditor, Texas Citizens Bank, N.A.
("Texas Citizens") and its former landlord EastGroup Properties,
L.P. ("EastGroup") which is also a secured creditor of the Debtor
have both consented to the Second DIP Financing under the terms and
conditions as set forth in this Second Order.

JEJP, LLC, d/b/a Precision Machined Products, filed a Chapter 11
petition (Bankr. S.D. Tex. Case No. 16-33646) on July 22, 2016.

assigned to Judge David R. Jones.  The Debtor estimated assets at
$50,000 to $100,000 and liabilities at $1 million to $10 million at
the time of the filing.

LEVEL 3 COMMUNICATIONS: Has $34-Bil. Buyout Offer from CenturyLink
------------------------------------------------------------------
Alex Sherman and Scott Moritz, writing for Bloomberg Brief,
reported that CenturyLink Inc. agreed to buy Level 3 Communications
Inc. for about $34 billion in cash and stock, creating a more
formidable competitor to AT&T Inc. in the market to handle heavy
internet traffic for businesses.

According to the report, citing a company statement, the
acquisition values Level 3 at $66.50 a share.  That's about 42
percent above where the Broomfield, Colorado-based company was
trading, before reports surfaced of a potential acquisition by
CenturyLink, which is based in Monroe, Louisiana, the Bloomberg
report said.  The equity value of the deal, excluding debt, is
about $24 billion, the report added.

Both companies have struggled against larger competitors -- AT&T
Inc. and Verizon Communications Inc. -- in the business services
market, the report related.  Investors sent CenturyLink shares down
the most in 3-1/2 years on concern the company is overpaying and
piling on debt to acquire a company whose sales growth has
stagnated in a hotly competitive market, the report further
related.

"We see this as addressing the opportunities in the enterprise
business," Bloomberg cited Level 3 Chief Executive Officer Jeff
Storey as saying in an interview.  "This is very consistent with
the strategies at CenturyLink," and will help us respond to things
like the accelerating demand for network bandwidth, he said.

The deal gives CenturyLink about $10 billion in tax credits that
Level 3 is carrying on its books, the report said.  CenturyLink
will use less than $2 billion a year of the accumulated net
operating losses as credit against taxes, the executives said on a
conference call, the report added.

                     Level 3 Communications

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.

                         *     *     *

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.

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.


LIBERTY ASSET: Hires Coldwell Banker as Real Estate Broker
----------------------------------------------------------
Liberty Asset Management Corporation seeks authorization from the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of California to
employ Coldwell Banker as real estate broker.

The Debtor requires Coldwell Banker to:

     (a) analyze and prepare all documentation necessary to list
and advertise the residential property, located at 1916 Los Padres
Drive, Rowland Heights, California 91748, for the sale as may be
necessary and appropriate;

     (b) list the subject property with the most propitious listing
services available; to inspect the subject property as necessary to
respond to the purchaser's inquiries; and to solicit reasonable
offers of purchasers;

     (c) convey all reasonable purchase offers to the Debtor and to
the Debtor's counsel, and subject to the Debtor's approval, to
negotiate and confirm the acceptance of the best offer; and,

     (d) be prepared and submit to escrow on behalf of the Debtor
any and all documents necessary to consummate a sale of the subject
property.

Coldwell Banker shall be compensated for its services in an amount
equal to 6% of the gross sale price for the sale of the subject
property. The Debtor is informed and believes that the commission
represents the standard commission rates used within the local real
estate industry for sales of similar residential real property. The
Listing Agreement provides for a listing price of $419,000 for the
subject property.

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

LIFESTYLE LIFT: Bid to Withdraw Reference of Suit vs. Atty Denied
-----------------------------------------------------------------
In the case captioned BASIL T. SIMON, Trustee Plaintiff, v. KENNETH
M. ZORN, Defendant, Case No. 16-13049 (E.D. Mich.), Judge Arthur J.
Tarnow of the United States District Court for the Eastern District
of Michigan, Southern Division, denied Kenneth Zorn's Motion to
Withdraw the Reference to Bankruptcy Court, without prejudice.

Defendant Zorn may seek this relief at a later stage of this
proceeding, Judge Tarnow said.

Plaintiff filed the instant action against Defendant Zorn on March
22, 2016, alleging legal malpractice and breach of fiduciary duty.
Plaintiff contends that Defendant Zorn failed to represent his
clients' best interests and that he committed a myriad of acts and
omissions that resulted in Lifestyle's downfall. Zorn adversary
proceeding. For instance, Plaintiff argues that Zorn did not advise
Kent on numerous matters, including hiring and firing consultants,
entering into failed business deals (e.g. the payday loans, letters
of intent, undocumented investment, etc.), and the zone of
insolvency. Plaintiff further asserts that Defendant Zorn had a
conflict of interest because he was Kent's personal attorney.
Finally, Plaintiff claims that Zorn should have petitioned a court
to appoint a receiver based on Kent's "instability and irrational
conduct."

Defendant argues that the Court should immediately withdraw the
reference to Bankruptcy Court because this case is at its inception
and judicial efficiency is best served by conducting pretrial
proceedings in the District Court. Application of the Burger Boys
factors, and guidance provided by similar cases in this District,
persuades the Court otherwise. That this matter is in the early
stages of litigation only supports keeping it before the Bankruptcy
Court. The Court doubts that the Bankruptcy Court is as unfamiliar
with the issues as Defendant suggests, given that Plaintiff filed
for Bankruptcy over a year ago, in March 2015. The adversarial
proceedings against Kent began on October 23, 2015; given that the
allegations against Zorn appear to be substantially similar to
those against Kent, the Bankruptcy Court has had sufficient time to
develop an understanding of the facts and the issues in the case.
Moreover, "bankruptcy proceedings beyond, but nevertheless related
to, the adversary proceeding[s] will be on-going, yielding the
likely possibility of judicial efficiency if all matters remain
before one judge."  Finally, the Court finds that neither party
will be prejudiced if the proceeding remains before the Bankruptcy
Court for the duration of pretrial litigation.

LOWELL & SONS: Nov. 17 Final Hearing on Cash Collateral Motion
--------------------------------------------------------------
Lowell & Sons, LLC, on Nov. 2, 2016, filed a first amended motion
seeking final authority to access cash collateral for its general
ongoing business operations.

Prior to the commencement of the case, the Debtor entered into
certain Note agreements with Riverview Community Bank ("RCB") and
Mid-Columbia Economic Development District ("MCEDD") secured by
Deeds of Trust against its real property.  In addition, the Deeds
of Trust contained commercial security agreements covering rents
(the "Prepetition Collateral") of the Debtor.

The security interests of RCB are senior to those of MCEDD and were
perfected by filing the Deeds of Trust in the counties where the
properties were located.  These agreements were recorded for the
following Real Property (RCB maintains that each of these Deeds of
Trust are attached to all of these properties):

   1) 220 Clearwater Ln., Hood River, OR 97031 –Recorded March
12, 2008 with Instrument ID 200800840;

   2) 393 NE Cherry St., White Salmon, WA (Parcel 3 Lots 5 & 6, Blk
1 Hunsakers 2nd, Blk 3, White Salmon, WA 98672) – Recorded
January 23, 2007 with Instrument ID 1067739; and

   3) Estes Parcels (Parcel 1 Lots 13 & 14, Blk 1, Bowmans Add Bk1,
White Salmon, WA 98672;–Parcel 2 Lots 7 & 8, Blk 1, Hunsakers
2nd, Blk 3, White Salmon, WA 98672) – Recorded March 12, 2008
with instrument ID 200800842.

Subsequently, on March 12, 2009, RCB released the two Estes Parcel
Deeds of Trust (Parcel 1 and Parcel 2).

The security interest of MCEDD was perfected by filing a Deed of
Trust in the county where the associated property is located.  The
agreements were recorded for the following Real Property: Cherry St
Parcel (Parcel 3 Lots 5 & 6, Blk 1 Hunsakers 2nd, Blk 3, White
Salmon, WA 98672) – Dated October 12, 2012 but recorded June 1,
2016 with instrument ID 1118573.

As of the Petition Date, the Debtor was indebted to RCB and in
arrears on the Hood River security agreement.  As of the Petition
Date, Debtor was indebted to MCEDD and in arrears on the Cherry
Parcel security agreement.

In order to maintain its business operations and protect its
ability to reorganize in accordance with chapter 11 of the Code, it
is necessary that the Debtor obtain the authority provided in 11
U.S.C. Sec. 363(c)(2)(B) to use cash collateral.

The Debtor requests that the Court authorize their final use of
cash collateral for the payment of their operating expenses in the
normal course of business, as set forth in the monthly budget.  The
use of cash collateral would cover projected monthly operating
expenses.

    Current Average Monthly Income         $15,085

    Estimated Monthly Expenses:
    Adequate Protection Payments            $7,306
    Utilities                               $1,925
    Office Expenses/Supplies                  $400
    Maintenance                               $960
    UST Fees                                  $217
    Owner Draw                              $1,200
    Insurance                                 $600
    Property Taxes                          $1,500
    Misc Contractor Fees                      $960
                                           -------
    Total                                  $15,067

The Debtor has negotiated a Stipulated Order re: Use of Cash
Collateral with RCB.  The Debtor will attempt to negotiate a
stipulated Order with MCEDD prior to the hearing.  The Debtor
currently has no alternative borrowing source from which it could
secure additional funding to operate its business.

In order to adequately protect the interests of RCB and MCEDD in
the Prepetition Collateral and for Debtor's use of cash collateral
as requested in this motion, the Debtor proposes to make adequate
protection payments to RCB and MCEDD in the amounts of $7,256 and
$50 respectively.

In the event that the Court were to refuse authorization of
Debtor's final use of cash collateral, the Debtor believes it will
be unable to maintain its current business operation and propose a
plan of reorganization.  Without the use of cash collateral, Debtor
will be forced to liquidate their collateral for below market value
resulting in significant, irreparable harm to Debtor's estate and
its creditors.

A final hearing on the Motion will be held on Nov. 17, 2016, at
9:30 a.m. in Portland, Oregon.

LUCID WEST: Hires Orantes Law Firm as General Insolvency Counsel
----------------------------------------------------------------
Lucid West Entertainment Group, LLC, seeks authorization from the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of California to
employ Orantes Law Firm, P.C., as general insolvency counsel as of
September 16, 2016.

The Debtor requires the Firm to:

     (a) bring forward a plan of reorganization expeditiously, as
well as provide the Debtor more general services, such as to advise
the Debtor with respect to compliance with the requirements of the
Office of the United States Trustee;

     (b) advise the Debtor regarding matters of bankruptcy law,
including its rights and remedies in regard to its assets and in
regard to the claims of creditors;

     (c) represent the Debtor in any proceedings or hearings in the
Bankruptcy Court and in any action in any other court where the
Debtor's rights under the Bankruptcy Code may be litigated or
affected, subject to the Firm's specific agreement;

     (d) conduct examinations of witnesses, claimants, or adverse
parties and to prepare and assist in the preparation of reports,
accounts, and pleadings related to the Chapter 11 case including
reviewing, not drafting, monthly operating reports;

     (e) advise the Debtor concerning the requirements of the
Bankruptcy Court and applicable rules as the same effect the Debtor
in the proceedings;

     (f) assist the Debtor in the negotiation, formulation,
confirmation, and implementation of a Chapter 11 plan; and,

     (g) take such other action and perform such other services as
the Debtor may require of the Firm in connection with the Chapter
11 case.

The Firm will be paid at these hourly rates:

         Giovanni Orantes       $500.00
         Associates             $250.00 - $500.00
         Paralegals             $160.00 - $200.00

The Firm will also be reimbursed for actual and necessary
expenses.

Starting on or about September 16, 2016, the Firm received
$7,500.00 of $20,000.00 as a classic retainer (exclusive of the
$1,717 filing). The Firm agreed to accept such a modest retainer
only to assist the Debtor to propose a plan to reorganize her debt.
Of the initial $20,000, $5,000 was earned pre-petition, leaving a
balance of $15,000.00.

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

LUXLAS FUND: S&P Affirms Then Withdraws 'BB-' CCR
-------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said it affirmed its ratings, including its
'BB-' long-term corporate credit rating, on Quebec-based Luxlas
Fund L.P.  The outlook is stable.  S&P Global Ratings subsequently
withdrew its ratings on Luxlas at the company's request.

At the time of the withdrawal, S&P's ratings reflected Luxlas'
attractive market position in Canada and the U.S., partially offset
by narrow business and geographic focus and participation in the
mature North American branded and private-label juice and drink
markets.  S&P's assessment also reflects a relatively unchanged
capital structure and S&P's expectation of debt-to-EBITDA of 2x-3x,
as per the recent refinancing.

The stable outlook reflected S&P's expectation the company will
deleverage with modest EBITDA growth from increased volumes,
contributing to some debt reduction from free cash flow.



LYONDELL CHEMICAL: Court Partly Bars Testimony in Blavatnick Suit
-----------------------------------------------------------------
In the case captioned EDWARD S. WEISFELNER, AS TRUSTEE OF THE LB
LITIGATION TRUST, Plaintiff, v. LEONARD BLAVATNICK, et al.
Defendants, Adv. Pro. No. 09-1375 (MG)(Bankr. S.D.N.Y.), Judge
Martin Glenn of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern
District of New York granted in part and denied in part the Access
Defendants' Motion in Limine.

The Motion is granted to the extent that the following testimony
shall be excluded: (i) factual narratives and chronologies; (ii)
testimony that documents or information were "ignored" or otherwise
not considered; and (iii) statements of parties' motivations, bias,
and intent. The remainder of the Motion is denied.

Before the Court is the Access Defendants' Motion in Limine to
Preclude Certain Testimony of Ralph Tuliano, David Witte, and H.G.
Nebeker, filed on September 20, 2016.

The Access Defendants move to preclude portions of the Experts'
testimony on the grounds that the challenged testimony (i)
"weave[s] a factual tale that -- assuming the documents and
testimony at issue are admissible -- the Trustee's counsel is
equally capable of arguing" and/or (ii) contains "speculation as to
the states of mind of various parties."

Second, the Access Defendants argue that the Experts make
conclusions about the parties' states of mind and intentions, which
are inadmissible because "the question of a party's intent or state
of mind is quintessentially the province of the trier of fact."

The Trustee argues that Federal Rule of Evidence 703 permits an
expert to "base an opinion on facts or data in the case that the
expert has been made aware of." The Trustee contends that the
challenged testimony is not a mere conduit for hearsay because the
"vast majority" of the evidence on which the Experts rely is
admissible. But even if the evidence were inadmissible, the Trustee
argues, Rule 703 permits an expert to rely on hearsay "if experts
in the particular field would reasonably rely on those kinds of
facts or data." The Trustee contends that because this case
concerns "complex and highly technical industries," expert analysis
"must acknowledge the facts surrounding relevant financial
projections."

                  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.


LYONDELL CHEMICAL: Objections to Trustee's Exhibits Partly OK'd
---------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Martin Glenn of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the
Southern District of New York sustained in part and overruled in
part the Access Defendants' objections to the Exhibits filed in
connection with the adversary proceeding captioned EDWARD S.
WEISFELNER, AS TRUSTEE OF THE LB LITIGATION TRUST, Plaintiff, v.
LEONARD BLAVATNICK, et al., Defendants, Adv. Pro. No. 09-1375
(MG)(Bankr. S.D.N.Y.).

The objections to PX77, PX221, and PX628 are overruled.  The
objections to the remainder of the Assertive Emails are sustained
unless the Trustee establishes each of the required elements of the
business records exception.

Before the Court are two letter briefs regarding 210 emails and
other documents offered as trial exhibits by Edward S. Weisfelner,
as Trustee of the LB Litigation Trust. The Trustee's letter brief
and the Access Defendants' letter brief were both filed on October
13, 2016. The Trustee has also submitted two declarations by
Douglas Pike: one signed on September 21, 2016, concerning
pre-merger Lyondell documents and one signed on October 3, 2016,
concerning post-merger LyondellBasell Industries AF S.C.A. ("LBI")
emails.

The Access Defendants object to the admission of 121 of the
Exhibits, 85 of which are emails.

The issue at hand is whether the Assertive Emails are admissible as
records of a regularly conducted business activity. The Pike
Declarations establish that the Exhibits originated from Lyondell's
or LBI's servers, satisfying the authentication requirement (which
defendants' counsel has not contested). But the Pike Declarations
do not address whether (i) each email was written contemporaneously
with the facts described therein; (ii) each email describes a
regularly-conducted business activity; and (iii) each email was
sent as part of that regularly-conducted business activity. Each of
these elements must be established for each email before it can be
admitted into evidence.

Most of the Assertive Emails readily meet the first element -- they
describe facts or assertions occurring at approximately the same
time as the sending of the email itself.

The Court has reviewed each of the Assertive Emails individually
and most do not meet the standards based on the second and third
element.

MACBETH DESIGNS: Seeks to Use Josephs & JPMorgan Cash Collateral
----------------------------------------------------------------
Macbeth Designs LLC filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of New Jersey a motion seeking approval to use cash
collateral in which secured lenders Jan Josephs and JPMorgan Chase
Bank, N.A., have an interest in accordance with the 90-day budget.

The Debtor requires the immediate use of cash collateral to pay its
usual and ordinary operating expenses for design and related
operating costs and maintain the value of its business while the
Debtor reorganizes its business operations.  Absent the use of the
Cash Collateral to pay the expenses set forth in the 90-day Budget,
which provides a 90-day forecast in order coincide with the
Debtor's business cycle in which payments are received quarterly,
the Debtor will be unable to operate and the value of the Debtor's
assets will be eradicated.  The payment of design-related expenses
including payroll, insurance and costs for samples as set forth
more fully in the Budget will therefore benefit the holders of
liens on the Debtor's assets in particular, and the Debtor's other
creditors in general, by preserving the value of the Debtor's
estate.

The Debtor is obligated to Chase under a business line of credit
(the "Chase LOC") of which approximately $81,073 remains
outstanding as of the Petition Date.  The Chase LOC is secured by
an alleged perfected security interest in all of the Debtor's
assets.

In addition, because of the Debtor's severe cash flow issues, it
was necessary for the Debtor to obtain a loan from Josephs, who is
the ex-husband of the Debtor's managing member, Margaret Josephs.
The Debtor is obligated to Josephs under the terms of a promissory
note dated May 25, 2016 in the original principal amount of
$250,000 (the "Josephs Note") of which approximately $231,556
remains outstanding as of the Petition Date.  The Josephs Note is
secured by an alleged perfected security interest in the Debtor's
assets, including its cash, accounts, accounts receivable,
royalties, and contract rights, which is subordinate to Chase.  The
Josephs Note is also personally guaranteed by Margaret Josephs.

Immediately upon commencement of the chapter 11 case, the Debtor
intends to initiate discussions with the Secured Lenders regarding
the consensual use of Cash Collateral.

The Debtor is hopeful that the parties will be able to negotiate a
consensual stipulation which provides for the use of Cash
Collateral in accordance with the Budget.

As additional adequate protection for the use of Cash Collateral,
the Debtor proposes to pay monthly payments to Chase under the
Chase LOC in the amount of $9,222.  In addition, the Debtor further
proposes to pay Josephs the monthly payment to which he is entitled
under the Josephs Note in the amount of approximately $1,300 per
month.

The Debtor submits that the value of Chase and Josephs' secured
positions will be adequately protected during the Debtor's use of
Cash Collateral by the preservation of the value of the Debtor's
assets and the issuance of the Replacement Liens as set forth
above, as well as payment of monthly interest to Chase and
Josephs.

The 90-day budget projects quarterly revenue of $200,000 and total
expenses of $163,813 during the period.  A copy of the Budget is

MIRAGEN THERAPEUTICS: Presents MRG-106 Clinical Data at Meeting
---------------------------------------------------------------
miRagen Therapeutics, Inc., announced that data from its ongoing
Phase 1 clinical study of MRG-106 in patients with mycosis
fungoides will be presented at the 58th Annual Meeting of the
American Society of Hematology.  The abstract will be available on
the ASH conference web site, http://www.hematology.org/

In the first cohort of the MRG-106 trial, six patients were dosed
by direct injection into their tumor.  The six patients tolerated
the administrations well with only minor redness at the injection
site reported for one patent.  One patient discontinued the trial
due to disease progression, which was considered unrelated to the
study drug.  Four of the five patients who completed dosing had
their Composite Assessment of Index Lesion Severity (CAILS) scores
evaluated in the MRG-106 treated lesions.  The lesions in these
four patients showed a 50% or greater reduction in the baseline
CAILS score.  The CAILS score measures the size and severity of the
lesion.

"We believe our initial clinical experience with MRG-106 is
encouraging," said William S. Marshall, president and chief
executive officer of miRagen.  "The drug was generally safe and
well tolerated with preliminary indications of clinical responses
in the first patients studied."

MONTICELLO INSURANCE: Moody's Affirms B1 IFS Rating
---------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has affirmed the B1 insurance financial
strength rating and changed the outlook to stable (from negative)
for Monticello Insurance Limited (Monticello, or MIL), the captive
reinsurance subsidiary of Brazil based Vale S.A. (senior unsecured
debt at Ba3, stable outlook), one of the largest metal and mining
companies in the world.  The change in Monticello's outlook follows
Moody's announcement on Nov. 4 of the change in Vale's rating
outlook.

                         RATINGS RATIONALE

According to Moody's, the change in outlook for MIL's B1 rating to
stable from negative reflects the change in the outlook of Vale's
rating to stable from negative, given the strong linkages between
MIL's Credit profile and that of Vale.

The rating agency said the affirmation of MIL's B1 rating is based
primarily on the support provided by Vale and on Monticello's
integration with the global risk management function of the group.
MIL is a core part of Vale's risk-management program and is the
sole insurance captive utilized in Vale's property insurance and
business interruption program worldwide.  Explicit support from
Vale to MIL, which has been provided through capital injections --
totaling US$240 million over the past three years --and ongoing
financial support to cover losses is a key driver of MIL's credit
rating, absent which MIL's rating would be lower.  The rating
agency expects that MIL will continue to receive extensive parental
support from Vale, including the parent company's willingness to
backstop MIL's obligations to its fronting insurance carriers, and
to provide additional capital to MIL in the event that it has
insufficient funds to meet its obligations under the reinsurance
assumed.

MIL's rating is constrained by its product risk concentration and
significant risk exposures which has resulted in earnings
volatility, as the company has reported net losses in 2015, as well
as the weak sovereign credit profile and operating environment of
Barbados, where MIL is domiciled.

Moody' mentioned that MIL's rating could be upgraded in the case of
an upgrade of Vale's rating or stronger explicit support from Vale
to MIL, in the form of an unconditional, irrevocable guarantee.
Conversely, MIL's rating could be downgraded if: 1) Vale's rating
is downgraded; 2) support from the group to the captive company is
reduced; 3) the captive reinsurer begins to cover risks of external
(i.e. non-Vale) entities or engages in non-reinsurance business; or
4) Barbados' sovereign rating (currently Caa1, stable outlook) is
downgraded.

Monticello Insurance Limited is based in Barbados.  As of Dec. 31,
2015, its total assets amounted to US$391 million and its
shareholders' equity was US$151 million.  The company's total
annual gross premium for 2015 totaled US$42.5 million, and the
company recorded a net loss of US$62 million in 2015.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Global
Reinsurers published in April 2016.

MULTIMEDIA PLATFORMS: Files Renewed Motion to Use Cash Collateral
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Multimedia Platforms Worldwide, Inc., et al., filed with the
Bankruptcy Court a renewed motion to use cash collateral in
accordance with a budget.

The secured creditor is White Winston Select Asset Funds, LLC, owed
$1,308,342 pursuant to a $1,750,000 Master Credit Facility
Agreement dated July 29, 2016.  White Winston asserts a statutory,
non-purchase money security interest in the Debtor's assets.

White Winston will receive replacement liens equal to extent,
validity and priority of prepetition liens, if necessary.

During the Interim 21-day Period ended Nov. 24, 2016, the Debtors
project the following: (a) total receipts in the amount of $80,350
(in addition to $50,000 of postpetition financing); and (b) total
disbursements in the amount of approximately $86,071.

The Debtors do not believe that cash receipts represent cash
collateral.  Specifically, the cash receipts represent advertising
revenue and not from any sales of magazine or newspapers, which are
circulated for free.  However, in the event the Court would ever
find that the postpetition advertising revenues represent cash
collateral, the Debtors submit that White Winston is adequately
protected as a result of the postpetition accounts receivable
generated, and the net cash position existing at the end of the
Interim Period.  More specifically, the Debtors project total
receipts of $80,350, which excludes $50,000 in postpetition
financing, thus, arguably, at most only $30,350 in alleged cash
collateral would be used; however, the ending cash balance is over
$44,000 and the ending balance of postpetition accounts receivable
is over $15,000.  The foregoing, coupled with the fact that even
White Winston agrees the circulating the brands is in the estate's
best interests, supports granting the relief requested hereunder.

NEWBURY COMMON:  Wants to Use IDB Cash Collateral
-------------------------------------------------
Debtor Seaboard Hotel LTS Associates, LLC asks the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the District of Delaware to approve the Letter Agreement,
between the Debtor and Israel Discount Bank of New York with
respect to the continued use of cash collateral.

The Debtor relates that, originally, IDB had agreed to make a loan
in the principal amount $6 million on Dec. 28, 2012, which was
subsequently increased by an additional $5 million, for a total
principal indebtedness of $11,000,000, secured by an Open End
Mortgage Deed and a certain Assignment of Rents and Leases, in
relation to the real property located at 23-25, 35 and 37 Atlantic
St., Stamford, Connecticut 06901.  The Debtor further relates that
IDB has agreed to lend an additional $7,000,000 to the Debtor,
secured the Real Property and security interest the Debtor's
Personal Property.  

The Debtor relates that IDB asserted in its Stay Relief Motion that
its secured loan, without accounting for approximately $6.5 million
in asserted mechanic's liens of third parties, was undersecured by
approximately $3 million and sought relief from the stay to
commence a foreclosure action against the Property.  The Debtor
further relates it did not take a position with respect to the
relief requested in the Stay Relief Motion so that the Court
entered an order granting the motion.

Consequently, the Debtor and IDB have engaged in negotiations
regarding structured process through which the Debtor can dispose
of its remaining physical assets, the unfinished Residence Inn,
located at 23-25, 35 and 37 Atlantic St., Stamford, Connecticut,
and the possibility of providing IDB with a deed in lieu of
foreclosure so as to avoid the cost and expense attendant to the
foreclosure process, while also preserving the status quo between
IDB and any other secured creditors.  

Among other things, the Parties have agreed on a three stage
process for disposition of the Property:

       First. IDB has consented to the use of cash collateral,
agreed to make Advances, and has agreed to provide LTS with
$475,000 for restructuring costs.

       Second. The Debtor has agreed to conduct a disposition
process with up to three potential stages, subject to approval of
the Court:

           (a) For a period of 60 days after the execution of the
Letter Agreement, or until December 26, 2016, the Debtor has agreed
to transfer the Property to IDB's Designee through the Deed in
Lieu, a Bill of Sale and certain other customary and ancillary
documents. Following such a transfer, all of the Loan Documents
will remain in full force and shall not satisfy the claims filed by
IDB in the Chapter 11 cases, subject to reduction of the Debtor's
obligation under the Loan Documents to the extent of the value of
the Property.

           (b) In the event that the Deed in Lieu and the Bill of
Sale are not accepted by IDB in that 60-day period, IDB will
provide the Debtor with a Release Price at which IDB will agree
that a buyer can purchase the Property free and clear of IDB's
liens.

           (c) If, at the end of the court-supervised auction
process, there are no qualifying bids at or above the Release Price
by the bid deadline, IDB or its Designee will be required to take
the Property under the form of Deed in Lieu and Bill of Sale, free
and clear of all liens claims and encumbrances, within 5 days of
the expiration of the bid deadline.

       Third. IDB has agreed to further consent to use of cash
collateral, agreeing to make advances to fund the cost of
continuing to maintain the Property during the disposition process
in the amounts set forth in the Budget. Accordingly, IDB is granted
with the customary protections: post-petition lien and replacement
collateral, which shall have the same scope, priority, validity and
enforceability that the First Liens have with respect to the
Pre-Petition Collateral and the Cash Collateral.  IDB is also
granted with an allowed super-priority administrative expense claim
under section 507(b) of the Bankruptcy Code equal to the amount of
any Advances made by IDB to the Debtor.

The Debtor's proposed 15-week Budget, which covers the period from
week beginning Oct. 3, 2016 through Jan. 9, 2017, forecasts total
monthly operating disbursements of $53,600 from the month of
October through December.

A hearing to consider the Debtor's motion is scheduled on Nov. 29,
2016 at 10:00 a.m.  The deadline for the filing of objections to
the Debtor's motion is set on Nov. 22.

BankruptcyData.com reported Granges AB and Granges Americas (the
"Downstream Buyer") filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court an
objection to Noranda Aluminum Holding's motion for an order
dismissing the Company's Chapter 11 cases -- other than for the
sole purpose of adjudicating fee applications -- and retaining
jurisdiction to enforce and implement orders entered in the Chapter

the Motion to Dismiss to the extent that it (1) seeks entry of an
order which terminates, prejudices, supersedes, or otherwise
affects the Downstream Sale Order, the Downstream APA, the
Downstream TSA, the Escrow Agreement or any document related
thereto (collectively, the 'Downstream Sale Documents') or the
Downstream Buyer's rights thereunder; or (2) fails to incorporate
language in accordance with paragraph 40 of the Downstream Sale
Order which states that (a) the Downstream Sale Documents shall

these chapter 11 cases; (b) the Downstream Buyer's rights and
interests under the Downstream Sale Documents shall be unaffected
by the entry of the order dismissing these chapter 11 cases; (c)
the terms of the Downstream Sale Order shall remain binding on all
parties in interest notwithstanding the dismissal of these chapter

Middle District of Florida extended Numismatic Subs, LLC's
exclusive period to file a plan and disclosure statement from
November 30, 2016 to May 31, 2017.

The Debtor previously sought the 182-day extension, telling the
Court that it anticipated filing a plan of reorganization by March
23, 2017, based on payments funded by documented profitability.
The Debtor further told the Court that the extension would be

OPTIMA SPECIALTY: S&P Lowers CCR to 'CC'; Outlook Negative
----------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said it lowered its corporate credit rating on
Optima Specialty Steel Inc. to 'CC' from 'CCC-'.  The outlook is
negative.

At the same time, S&P lowered its issue-level rating on the
company's secured debt to 'CCC' from 'CCC+'.  The rating on the
company's unsecured debt is unchanged at 'C'.  The recovery rating
on the company's secured debt remains '1', indicating S&P's
expectation of very high (90% to 100%) recovery in the event of a
payment default.  The recovery rating on the company's unsecured
debt remains '6', indicating S&P's expectation of negligible (0% to
10%) recovery in the event of a payment default.

"The downgrade reflects our view that it is highly likely that
Optima could default on its senior secured and senior unsecured
notes, given upcoming maturities before the end of the year," said
S&P Global Ratings credit analyst Vania Dimova.  "The company is
actively negotiating a proposed refinancing plan that it is
targeting to finalize by the end of November."

The negative outlook reflects S&P's view that Optima will likely
face a default, distressed exchange, or similar restructuring in
the next four to six weeks.

S&P could lower the rating to 'SD' at the onset of a restructuring
that it views as distressed.  Alternatively, S&P could lower the
rating to 'D' if it considers a general default to be imminent, the
company misses an interest payment in the next 60 days, or the
company does not repay the maturing debt as it comes due in
December.

S&P could raise the ratings if Optima reaches a refinancing
agreement such that all maturing debt is repaid at par and on time.
Subsequently, S&P would revise all ratings to reflect the new
capital structure.



P3 FOODS: Access to Cash Collateral Extended to Nov. 8
------------------------------------------------------
Judge Donald Cassling has ruled that the pending second motion of
P3 Foods, LLC, for use of cash collateral is entered and continued
to Nov. 8, 2016, at 10:00 a.m.   The use of cash collateral granted
by the Oct. 18, 2016 order is extended to Nov. 8, 2016 at 10:00
a.m.

As reported in the Oct. 31, 2016 edition of the TCR, P3 Foods, LLC,
filed a motion asking the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern
District of Illinois for approval to the use of cash collateral
through Dec. 3, 2016.

The secured creditors that assert an interest in the collateral
are:

      (a) Element Financial Corp., whom the Debtor owes $559,220.
The indebtedness is secured by all assets, intangibles, accounts,
inventory fixtures equipment deposits of the Debtor - a blanket
lien related to all the stores except for store # 2423;

      (b) Element Financial Corp., whom the Debtor owes $130,746.
The indebtedness is secured by all assets, intangibles, accounts,
inventory fixtures equipment deposits of the Debtor - a blanket
lien related to the store at 808 Washington. Brainerd MN, store #
2423;

      (c) 20/20 Franchisee Funding LLC, whom the Debtor owes
$269,649.  The indebtedness is secured by assets and property
owned, existing acquired or arising at the store #2920 located at
1800 7th St., W, St. Paul MN;

      (d) Leaf Capital Funding LLC, whom the Debtor owes $43,220.
The indebtedness is secured by specific equipment listed on the
financing statement; and

      (e) American Express Bank, whom the Debtor owes $35,000.  The
indebtedness is secured by all assets of the Debtor, whether
currently-owned or later-acquired.

The Debtor requires the use of the Cash Collateral to assist the
Debtor in continuing with its operations and to propose a plan of
reorganization.  The Debtor contends that without the use of cash
collateral, its nine Burger King franchises cannot operate,
causing
immediate and irreparable harm due to the Debtor's inability to
pay
its insurance, maintenance, and regular business operations costs
and expenses, which are necessary to maintain the value of the
franchises as a going concern.

The Debtor's proposed Budget projects total expenses of $990,733
for the period November 4, 2016 through December 16, 2016, to pay
the necessary costs associated with the operation of these
franchises/properties. The Budget includes payments to Burger King
for rent, real estate taxes, royalties and advertising, and also
rent for the store in Brainerd.  The Budget also includes
remaining
payments from Oct 6 to Nov 3 for food & supplies, payroll, taxes,
repairs, utilities, scavenger, contingency amounting to $342,000.

The Debtor proposes adequate protection with respect to the all
the
secured creditors as follows:

     (a) Each secured creditor will be granted valid and perfected
replacement liens in and to the personal assets of the Debtor to
the same extent and with the same priority as held pre-petition;

     (b) Insurance will be maintained on the all the Collateral in
accordance with the instructions of the United States Trustee; and

     (c) The funds will be used for the protection, maintenance,
upkeep, repairs and insurance for the Debtor's property, purchase
of supplies, inventory and food ingredients, salaries and payment
of current due post-petition taxes, and not for any other purpose.

The Debtor proposes to pay these secured creditors, the regular
prepetition payment of principal and interest:

     (a) Element Financial Corp.           $16,428

     (b) 20/20 Franchise Funding LLC       $4,835

     (c) American Express                  $7,802

     (d) Leaf Capital Funding              $797

PACIFIC EXPLORATION: Blackhill Partners Completes Restructuring
---------------------------------------------------------------
Blackhill Partners, an investment banking firm specializing in
complex situations, has completed the restructuring of Pacific
Exploration & Production and its related entities.  Pacific
retained Blackhill as restructuring advisor and chief restructuring
officer (CRO) to guide the company through a $5.4 billion
multi-jurisdictional restructuring process, administered
collectively under the insolvency laws of Canada, Colombia and the
U.S.  Pacific Exploration & Production has its primary operations
in Colombia and Peru, and the restructured company is traded on the
Toronto Stock Exchange (TSE: PEN).

Jim Latimer, Managing Director of Blackhill Partners, served as CRO
to guide Pacific through the reorganization and now will serve as
the company's interim CEO.  Mr. Latimer has 35 years' experience
managing oil and gas companies as well as 18 years' experience in
restructuring, with particular expertise in CRO, operational
restructuring, and distressed mergers and acquisitions.  He was
assisted in the restructuring by Blackhill Managing Directors Steve
Strom, Jeff Jones, and Dan Gillett.

Pacific was the largest private exploration and production company
operating in Colombia, producing 75,000 barrels per day and
employing 1700 people.  The company had US $5.4 billion in debt at
the time of the filing, making it the second largest exploration
and production insolvency in the current down cycle, and one of the
five largest exploration and production insolvencies ever.  The
plenary filing was conducted under the Companies' Creditors
Arrangement Act (Canada) process in Toronto, and thus far Pacific
has been the largest new insolvency filing in Canada this year.

The restructuring substantially improved the capital structure of
Pacific by reducing the amount of outstanding debt from U.S. $5.4
billion to U.S. $250 million.  In addition, the company exited with
over $500 million in cash and has achieved positive cash flow.

For this complex engagement, Blackhill partnered with a team from

PETROQUEST ENERGY: Incurs $23.3 Million Net Loss in Third Quarter
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Petroquest Energy, Inc., filed with the Securities and Exchange
Commission its quarterly report on Form 10-Q disclosing a net loss
available to common stockholders of $23.30 million on $17.09
million of revenues for the three months ended Sept. 30, 2016,
compared to a net loss available to common stockholders of $51.91
million on $26.87 million of revenues for the three months ended
Sept. 30, 2015.

For the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2016, the Company reported a
net loss available to common stockholders of $86.58 million on
$50.23 million of revenues compared to a net loss available to
common stockholders of $235.2 million on $92.87 million of revenues
for the same period a year ago.

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.

"Our liquidity position has been negatively impacted by the
prolonged decline in commodity prices that began in late 2014.  In
response to lower commodity prices we have taken the following
actions during 2015 and 2016 aimed at preserving liquidity,
reducing overall debt levels and extending debt maturities:

  * Completed the sale of substantially all of our interests in
    Oklahoma for $278 million;

  * Reduced our 2016 capital expenditure budget to between $15
    million and $20 million, as compared to 2015 spending of
    approximately $65 million;

  * Suspended the quarterly dividend on our outstanding Series B
    Preferred Stock saving $5.1 million annually;

  * Completed two debt exchanges reducing debt maturing in 2017
    from $350 million to $22.7 million;

  * Reduced total debt 34% from $425 million at December 31, 2014
    to $280.3 million at September 30, 2016;

  * Entered into a new $50 million Multidraw Term Loan Agreement

                     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.

In October 2016, S&P Global Ratings raised the corporate credit
rating on 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.

Quantum Corporation filed with the Securities and Exchange

positive cash flows from operating activities.  We believe that our
existing cash and capital resources will be sufficient to meet all
currently planned expenditures, debt service and contractual
obligations and to sustain operations for at least the next 12
months.  This belief is dependent upon our ability to achieve gross
margin projections and to control operating expenses in order to
provide positive cash flow from operating activities. Should we be
unable to meet our gross margin or expense objectives, it would
likely have a material negative effect on our cash balances and
capital resources."

Commission its quarterly report on Form 10-Q disclosing net income
of $107 million on $1.64 billion of net revenues for the three

on $1.66 billion of net revenues for the three months ended Sept.

For the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2016, the Company reported net
income of $159 million on $4.44 billion of net revenues compared to
net income of $178 million on $4.38 billion of net revenues for the
same period a year ago.

As of Sept. 30, 2016, the Company had $7.45 billion in total
assets, $4.98 billion in total liabilities and $2.46 billion in
total equity.

"While our third quarter results reflect continued pressure on NRT
as expected, we have moved aggressively to improve the business and
enhance NRT's competitiveness with an infusion of talent and new
growth initiatives," said Richard A. Smith, Realogy's chairman,
chief executive officer and president.  "We expect these
initiatives to put near-term pressure on margins, but anticipate
that the resulting increase in revenue will deliver improved
financial results over time and position us well to achieve our
long-term goals and drive shareholder value."

For the fourth quarter of 2016, Realogy expects to achieve overall
homesale transaction volume gains in the range of 3% to 5%
year-over-year.  RFG's fourth quarter transaction volume is
expected to increase 4% to 6% and NRT transaction volume is
expected to increase 1% to 3%.

For the full year 2016, the Company expects homesale transaction
volume gains in the range of 3% to 4% year-over-year.  Realogy also
expects to deliver Operating EBITDA of between $750 million and
$770 million, yielding approximately $425 million to $450 million
of free cash flow.

"Our business model continues to generate significant free cash
flow, which enabled us to accelerate share repurchases during the
third quarter," said Anthony E. Hull, Realogy's executive vice
president, CFO and treasurer.  "We will continue to be thoughtful
about deploying our free cash flow, with a balanced approach to
delevering, acquisitions and returning capital to shareholders."

The Company ended the quarter with cash and cash equivalents of
$224 million.  Total long-term corporate debt, including the
short-term portion, net of cash and cash equivalents (net corporate
debt), totaled $3.3 billion at Sept. 30, 2016.  The Company's net
debt leverage3 was 3.8 times at Sept. 30, 2016.

In the Aug. 1, 2013, edition of the TCR, Moody's Investors Service
upgraded the corporate family rating of Realogy Group to to B2
from B3.  The upgrade to B2 CFR is driven by expectations for
ongoing strong financial performance, supported by Realogy's
recently-concluded debt and equity financing activities and a
continuing recovery in the US existing home sale market.

As reported by the TCR on Feb. 18, 2013, Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services raised its corporate credit rating on Realogy Corp. to
'B+' from 'B'.

"The one notch upgrade in the corporate credit rating to 'B+'
reflects an increase in our expectation for operating performance
at Realogy in 2013, and S&P's expectation that total lease
adjusted debt to EBITDA will improve to the low-6x area and funds
from operations (FFO) to total adjusted debt will be improve to
the high-single-digits percentage area in 2013, mostly due to
EBITDA growth in the low- to mid-teens percentage area in 2013,"
S&P said.


RENEGADE HOLDINGS: Final Decree Sought; Cash Motion Declared Moot
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Benjamin A. Kahn on Nov. 2, 2016, entered an order denying as
moot Renegade Holdings, Inc., et al.'s motion to use cash
collateral after due consideration of the filings and statements of
the parties in the Debtors' bankruptcy case.

On Sept. 8, 2014, the Court entered an Order Confirming Second
Amended and Restated Joint Plan of Reorganization, confirming the
Trustee's plan of reorganization as amended therein.

The Second Amended and Restated Joint Plan of Liquidation has been
fully consummated.

Gerald A. Jeutter, Jr., Substitute Chapter 11 Trustee for Renegade
Holdings, Inc., Alternative Brands, Inc. and Renegade Tobacco Co.,
on March 24, 2016, filed a motion for final decree.  However,
additional time was required to make further distributions under
the Plan.

On Sept. 23, 2016, the Trustee filed another motion seeking a final
decree closing the Chapter 11 cases.

In the latest Final Decree Motion, the Trustee said that in
consummation of the Plan, the Trustee has paid all allowed priority
claims and all allowed unsecured claims in accordance with the
Plan.

The Trustee has filed a final report (March 24, 2016) and paid its
final quarterly fees to the Clerk.  

The Trustee and his professionals have filed their final
applications for compensation and these claims will be paid as
administrative claims in full, once approved.

The Debtors' bank accounts have a zero balance and, accordingly,
the Trustee is now ready for entry of a final decree by the Court.

                      About Renegade Holdings

Renegade Holdings and two subsidiaries -- Alternative Brands, Inc.
and Renegade Tobacco Company -- filed for Chapter 11 protection
(Bankr. M.D.N.C. Lead Case No. 09-50140) on Jan. 28, 2009, and
exited bankruptcy on June 1, 2010.  They were put back into
bankruptcy July 19, 2010, when Judge William L. Stocks vacated the
reorganization plan, in part because of a criminal investigation of
owner Calvin Phelps and the companies regarding what authorities
called "unlawful trafficking of cigarettes."

Alternative Brands is a federally licensed manufacturer of tobacco
products consisting primarily of cigarettes and cigars.  Renegade
Tobacco distributes the tobacco products produced by ABI through
wholesalers and retailers in 19 states and for export.  ABI also
is a contract fabricator for private label brands of cigarettes
and cigars which are produced for other licensed tobacco
manufacturers.

The stock of RHI is owned indirectly by Calvin A. Phelps through
his ownership of the stock of Compliant Tobacco, LLC which, in
turn, owns all of the stock of RHI which in turn owns all of the
stock of RTC and ABI.  Mr. Phelps was the chief executive officer
of all three companies. All three of the Debtors' have their
offices and production facilities in Mocksville, North Carolina.

In August 2010, the Bankruptcy Court approved the appointment of
Peter Tourtellot, managing director of turnaround-management
company Anderson Bauman Tourtellot Vos & Co., as Chapter 11
trustee.

On July 16, 2016, Mr. Tourtellot passed away.  An order appointing
Gerald A. Jeutter, Jr. ("Trustee") as substitute Chapter 11 Trustee
was  entered August 16, 2016.


RESIDENTIAL CAPITAL: Court Sustains Objections to Claim No. 3759
----------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Martin Glenn of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the
Southern District of New York sustained the ResCap Borrower Claims
Trust's remaining objection to Frank Reed's Claim No. 3759.

Reed's claim against GMACM Mortgage LLC arose from its alleged
wrongful foreclosure on Reed's property on Matlack Drive in
Moorestown, New Jersey.

In September of 2014, the bankruptcy court conducted an evidentiary
hearing on Reed's claims against GMACM, and ultimately awarded Reed
$17,469 under the New Jersey Consumer Fraud Act (the "CFA").  Reed
successfully appealed to the district court, which found that the
bankruptcy court improperly excluded certain evidence relating to
alleged damages resulting from the wrongful foreclosure action
initiated by GMACM.  The case was remanded to determine whether
Reed suffered any cognizable damages caused by the foreclosure
unrelated to the property on Matlack Drive.

The bankruptcy court conducted an evidentiary hearing from
September 26, 2016 to September 29, 2016, and following the trial,
took the matter under submission.

Judge Glenn found that Reed failed to prove by a preponderance of
the evidence that he suffered any cognizable damages recoverable on
his remaining CFA claim beyond what he was previously awarded.
Therefore, the Trust's objection to Reed's claim was sustained and
Reed's claim was expunged.

opinion and order is available at

SEAWORLD PARKS: S&P Cuts CCR to B+ on Weak Operating Performance
----------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said it lowered its corporate credit rating on
Orlando, Fla.-based theme park operator SeaWorld Parks &
Entertainment Inc. to 'B+' from 'BB-'.  The outlook is negative.

At the same time, S&P lowered its issue-level rating on the
company's $1.7 billion senior secured credit facility to 'BB-' from
'BB', in line with the lower corporate credit rating.  The '2'
recovery rating on this debt is unchanged, reflecting S&P's
expectation for substantial (70% to 90%; lower half of the range)
recovery for lenders in the event of a payment default.

"The downgrade reflects our lowered forecast for 2016 adjusted
EBITDA to decline in the low-teens percentage area, driven by
continued declines in international attendance at Florida parks,
adverse weather events, and wage increases across the portfolio
reported in the third quarter of 2016," said S&P Global Ratings
credit analyst Justin Gerstley.

Further, S&P lowered its preliminary estimate for EBITDA in 2017 to
flat to a decline in the low-single digits.  As a result, S&P
expects that lease-adjusted debt to EBITDA will be elevated above
S&P's previous 5x downgrade threshold for a prolonged period,
increasing to the mid-5x area through 2017.

The negative rating outlook reflects S&P's expectation that
adjusted debt to EBITDA will likely remain weak compared to S&P's
5.5x downgrade threshold through 2017.  In addition, the company
still faces challenges regarding reputational risk, and the
economic recession in Brazil and U.S. dollar strength may remain
key drivers for reduced travel to the Orlando market and attendance
at SeaWorld Orlando.


SEMLER SCIENTIFIC: Files Third Quarter Form 10-Q

from Mr. William H.C. Chang pursuant to two separate promissory
notes and also issued two 2-year warrants to acquire an aggregate
228,572 shares of the Company's common stock at an exercise price
of $1.75 per share.  On March 31, 2016, the Company borrowed
$700,000 from an accredited investor pursuant to a promissory note
and also issued a 2-year warrant to acquire an aggregate 79,459
shares of the Company's common stock at $1.85 per share.  On
April 5, 2016, the Company borrowed $160,000 from the same
accredited investor pursuant to a promissory note and also issued a
2-year warrant to acquire an aggregate of 18,162 shares of its
common stock at $1.85 per share.  On May 20, 2016, the Company
borrowed $80,000 from the same accredited investor pursuant to a
promissory note and also issued a 2-year warrant to acquire an
aggregate of 9,081 shares of the Company's common stock at $1.85
per share.  In July 2016, the Company entered into some software
and equipment financing arrangements.

"We have incurred recurring losses since inception and expect to
continue to incur losses as a result of costs and expenses related
to our marketing and other promotional activities, research and
continued development of our products and services.  Our principal
sources of cash have included the issuance of equity, including our
February 2014 initial public offering of common stock, and to a
lesser extent, recent private placement offerings of common stock,
borrowings under loan agreements, the issuance of promissory notes,
and revenue from leasing our product and selling our testing
services.  We expect that our operating expenses will continue to
grow in order to grow our revenues and, as a result, we will need
to generate significant additional net revenues to achieve
profitability.  For these reasons, our independent registered
public accountants' report for the year ended December 31, 2015
includes an explanatory paragraph that expresses substantial doubt
about our ability to continue as a "going concern."  This doubt
continues to exist.

"Although we do not have any current capital commitments, we expect
that we may increase our expenditures to continue our efforts to
grow our business and commercialize our products and services.
Accordingly, we currently expect to make additional expenditures in
both sales and marketing, and invest in our corporate
infrastructure.  We also expect to invest in our research and
development efforts.  We do not have any definitive plans as to the
exact amounts or particular uses at this time, and the exact
amounts and timing of any expenditure may vary significantly from
our current intentions.  However, in order to execute on our
business plan, and given our current available cash, we anticipate
that we will need to raise additional capital. To improve operating
cash flow, in 2015, we implemented measures to reduce expenses and
renegotiated longer payment terms in our existing contracts.  There
is no assurance that additional financing will be available when
needed or that management will be able to obtain financing on
acceptable terms or whether or not we will generate sufficient
revenues to become profitable and have positive operating cash
flow.  If we are unable to raise sufficient additional funds when
necessary, we may need to curtail making additional expenditures
and could be required to scale back our business plans, or make
other changes until sufficient additional capital is raised to
support further operations.  There can be no assurance that such a
plan will be successful."

SEVENTY SEVEN: Reports Financial Results for Third Quarter 2016
---------------------------------------------------------------
Seventy Seven Energy Inc. on Nov. 9, 2016, reported financial and
operational results for the one month ended July 31, 2016 for its
Predecessor and the two months ended September 30, 2016 for its
Successor.  Upon emergence from Chapter 11 bankruptcy on August 1,
2016, SSE adopted fresh-start accounting, which resulted in the
Company becoming a new entity for financial reporting purposes.
References to "Successor" relate to the financial position and the
results of operations of the reorganized SSE as of and subsequent
to August 1, 2016.  References to "Predecessor" refer to the
financial position of SSE prior to August 1, 2016 and the results
of operations through July 31, 2016.  As a result of the
application of fresh-start accounting and the effects of the
implementation of the plan of reorganization, the financial
statements on or after August 1, 2016 are not comparable with the
financial statements prior to that date.   Key information related
to SSE for the one month ended July 31, 2016 and two months ended
September 30, 2016 is as follows:

   -- Emerged from bankruptcy on August 1, 2016, which reduced debt
by $1.115 billion
   -- Net Loss of $36.5 million and $11.6 million for the two
months ended September 30, 2016 and the one month ended July 31,
2016, respectively
   -- Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA of $8.5 million and $3.0 million
for the two months ended
September 30, 2016 and one month ended July 31, 2016, respectively
   -- 29 rigs currently operating; 22 additional rigs under
contract

Active rig count has more than doubled during the past six months
For the two months ended
September 30, 2016 and one month ended July 31, 2016, SSE reported
total revenues of $79.7 million and $40.4 million, respectively, a
13% decrease compared to revenues of $138.1 million for the three
months ended June 30, 2016, and a 44% decrease compared to revenues
of $213.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015.

Net loss for the two months ended September 30, 2016 and one month
ended July 31, 2016 was $36.5 million and $11.6 million, or $1.66
and $0.21 per fully diluted share, respectively, compared to a net
loss for the three months ended June 30, 2016 of $84.5 million, or
$1.53 per fully diluted share, and a net loss of $48.5 million, or
$0.95 per fully diluted share, for the three months ended September
30, 2015.  SSE's adjusted EBITDA was $8.5 million and $3.0 million
for the two months ended September 30, 2016 and one month ended
July 31, 2016, respectively, compared to adjusted EBITDA of $31.5
million for the three months ended June 30, 2016 and adjusted
EBITDA of $41.1 million for the three months ended September 30,
2015.

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure.

"Having completed the restructuring process in the quarter, we are
now focused completely on maximizing our strong asset base and
operational expertise to grow our business as the industry seems to
enter the start of a recovery period," Chief Executive Office Jerry
Winchester said.  "As our numbers demonstrate, the drilling rig
market is indeed improving but low pricing for hydraulic fracturing
remains challenging.

"The loss in the quarter that we experienced in pressure pumping
can be attributed to an ongoing competitive pricing environment,
our commitment to maintaining service quality and the strategic
decision to invest in a new large, long-term customer.  That said,
while I am always hesitant to call the bottom of a cycle, our
increased rig activity and recent pricing and utilization gains in
hydraulic fracturing indicate that an upturn in market conditions
is approaching."

Drilling

SSE's drilling segment contributed revenues of $43.0 million and
$20.1 million and adjusted EBITDA of $24.6 million and $12.9
million during the two months ended September 30, 2016 and one
month ended July 31, 2016, respectively, compared to revenues of
$62.8 million and adjusted EBITDA of $40.6 million for the three
months ended June 30, 2016 and revenues of $80.3 million and
adjusted EBITDA of $41.6 million for the three months ended
September 30, 2015.  The $0.3 million increase in revenues for the
two months ended September 30, 2016 and one month ended July 31,
2016 compared to the three months ended June 30, 2016 was primarily
due to a 39% increase in revenue days (which is the aggregate
number of days each active rig generated revenue) mostly offset by
a decrease in idle-but-contracted payments of $9.6 million.

Revenues from non-CHK customers as a percentage of total segment
revenues increased from 37% for the three months ended June 30,
2016, to 41% and 39% for the two months ended September 30, 2016
and one month ended July 31, 2016, respectively.  As of September
30, 2016, approximately 75% of SSE's active rigs were contracted by
non-CHK customers and SSE had a total drilling revenue backlog of
$206.1 million.

As a percentage of drilling revenues, drilling operating costs were
44% and 37% during the two months ended September 30, 2016 and one
month ended July 31, 2016, respectively, compared to 37% for the
three months ended June 30, 2016 and 52% for the three months ended
September 30, 2015.  Operating costs were $18.8 million and $7.4
million for the two months ended September 30, 2016 and one month
ended July 31, 2016, respectively, compared to $23.0 million for
the three months ended June 30, 2016 and $41.4 million for the
three months ended September 30, 2015.  Average operating costs per
revenue day for the two months ended September 30, 2016 and one
month ended July 31, 2016 decreased 18% from the three months ended
June 30, 2016, primarily due to a decrease in fixed labor-related
costs.

As of September 30, 2016, the Company's marketed fleet consisted of
90 rigs, 72 of which are multi-well pad capable.

Hydraulic Fracturing

SSE's hydraulic fracturing segment contributed revenues of $30.5
million and $17.5 million and adjusted EBITDA of ($8.0) million and
($6.1) million during the two months ended September 30, 2016 and
one month ended July 31, 2016, respectively, compared to revenues
of $66.9 million and adjusted EBITDA of $2.8 million for the three
months ended June 30, 2016 and revenues of $118.1 million and
adjusted EBITDA of $15.0 million for the three months ended
September 30, 2015.  The decrease in revenues from the three months
ended June 30, 2016 compared to the two months ended September 30,
2016 and one month ended July 31, 2016 was primarily due to a 29%
decrease in revenue per stage as a result of significant reductions
in pricing in order to maintain healthy long-term customer
relationships and to continue to diversify our business.  Revenues
from non-CHK customers as a percentage of total segment revenues
increased from 21% in the three months ended June 30, 2016 to 52%
and 49% in the two months ended September 30, 2016 and one month
ended July 31, 2016, respectively.  As of September 30, 2016, SSE's
hydraulic fracturing revenue backlog was $67.4 million with an
average duration of 9 months.

As a percentage of hydraulic fracturing revenues, hydraulic
fracturing operating costs were 127% and 135% for the two months
ended September 30, 2016 and one month ended July 31, 2016,
respectively, compared to 96% for the three months ended June 30,
2016 and 88% for the three months ended September 30, 2015.
Average operating costs per stage for the two months ended
September 30, 2016 and one month ended July 31, 2016 decreased 5%
from the three months ended June 30, 2016 primarily due to a
decrease in product costs.

As of September 30, 2016, SSE owned 13 hydraulic fracturing fleets
with an aggregate of 500,000 horsepower operating in the Anadarko
Basin and the Eagle Ford and Utica Shales.

Oilfield Rentals

SSE's oilfield rentals segment contributed revenues of $6.1 million
and $2.9 million and adjusted EBITDA of $0.6 million and $0.2
million during the two months ended September 30, 2016 and one
month ended July 31, 2016, respectively, compared to revenues of
$8.4 million and adjusted EBITDA of $0.1 million for the three
months ended June 30, 2016 and revenues of $15.0 million and
adjusted EBITDA of $1.5 million for the three months ended
September 30, 2015.  Revenues from non-CHK customers as a
percentage of total segment revenues increased from 48% in the
three months ended June 30, 2016 to 62% and 57% in the two months
ended September 30, 2016 and one month ended July 31, 2016,
respectively.

As a percentage of oilfield rental revenues, operating costs were
93% and 94% for the two months ended September 30, 2016 and one
month ended July 31, 2016, respectively, compared to 100% for the
three months ended June 30, 2016 and 93% for the three months ended
September 30, 2015.  The decrease in operating costs as a
percentage of revenues was due to declines in labor-related costs
and sub-contracting services in the two months ended September 30,
2016 and one month ended July 31, 2016 compared to the three months
ended June 30, 2016.  Operating costs were $5.7 million and $2.7
million during the two months ended September 30, 2016 and one
month ended July 31, 2016, respectively, compared to $8.4 million
for the three months ended June 30, 2016 and $14.0 million for the
three months ended September 30, 2015.

Former Oilfield Trucking

During the second quarter of 2015, SSE sold its drilling rig and
logistics business and water hauling assets.  As of June 30, 2015,
there were no remaining assets or operations in the oilfield
trucking segment, although we do have ongoing liabilities,
primarily related to insurance claims, whose income statement
impact is charged to general and administrative expense.

Reorganization Items

Reorganization items totaled $16.5 million for the one month ended
July 31, 2016, consisting of a $632.1 million non-cash gain on
liabilities subject to compromise, a $596.0 million non-cash loss
on fresh-start fair value adjustments, a $25.1 million non-cash
charge related to stock-based compensation accelerations and a $6.8
million non-cash expense for the fair value of the warrants issued
to Predecessor stockholders.  Additionally, professional fees and
debt issuance write-off costs totaled $19.8 million and $0.8
million, respectively, for the one month ended July 31, 2016.  The
Company incurred professional fees of $0.2 million for the two
months ended September 30, 2016.

General and Administrative Expenses

General and administrative expenses were $16.6 million and $4.7
million for the two months ended September 30, 2016 and one month
ended July 31, 2016, respectively, compared to $39.7 million for
the three months ended June 30, 2016 and $26.7 million for the
three months ended September 30, 2015.  General and administrative
expenses for corporate functions settled in cash were $8.4 million
and $4.0 million for the two months ended September 30, 2016 and
one month ended July 31, 2016, respectively, compared to $11.8
million for the three months ended June 30, 2016 and $15.5 million
for the three months ended September 30, 2015.  The decrease
compared to the third quarter of 2015 was primarily due to declines
in consulting fees.

SSE incurred restructuring charges of $0.3 million and ($0.4)
million for the two months ended September 30, 2016 and one month
ended July 31, 2016, respectively, compared to $23.5 million for

of $7.6 million and $1.0 million for the two months ended September
30, 2016 and one month ended July 31, 2016, respectively, compared
to $4.1 million and $8.3 million for the three months ended June
30, 2016 and three months ended September 30, 2015, respectively,
and severance-related costs of $0.3 million and a nominal amount
for the two months ended September 30, 2016 and one month ended
July 31, 2016, respectively, compared to $0.3 million and $1.5
million for three months ended June 30, 2016 and three months ended

capital of $88.9 million.  As of November 4, 2016, SSE had cash of
$43.8 million and the Company's revolving credit facility remained
undrawn.  As of September 30, 2016, SSE had $2.6 million of
purchase commitments related to future capital expenditures that
the Company expects to incur during the last quarter of 2016.

Capital expenditures totaled $6.1 million and $6.7 million for the

2016, respectively, which primarily consisted of investments in new
PeakeRigs(TM).  For the two months ended September 30, 2016 and
seven months ended July 31, 2016, capital expenditures totaled $6.1
million and $82.8 million, respectively.

                       About Stanford Group

The Stanford Financial Group was a privately held international
group of financial services companies controlled by Allen Stanford,
until it was seized by United States (U.S.) authorities in early
2009.

Domiciled in Antigua, Stanford International Bank Limited --
http://www.stanfordinternationalbank.com/-- is a member of  
Stanford Private Wealth Management, a global financial services
network with US$51 billion in deposits and assets under management
or advisement.  Stanford Private Wealth Management served more than
70,000 clients in 140 countries.

On Feb. 16, 2009, the United States District Court for the Northern
District of Texas, Dallas Division, signed an order appointing
Ralph Janvey as receiver for all the assets and records of Stanford
International Bank, Ltd., Stanford Group Company, Stanford Capital
Management, LLC, Robert Allen Stanford, James M. Davis and Laura
Pendergest-Holt and of all entities they own or control.  The
February 16 order, as amended March 12, 2009, directs the Receiver
to, among other things, take control and possession of and to
operate the Receivership Estate, and to perform all acts necessary
to conserve, hold, manage and preserve the value of the
Receivership Estate.

The case in district court was Securities and Exchange Commission
v. Securities Investor Protection Corp., 11-mc-00678, U.S. District
Court, District of Columbia (Washington).

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission charged before the U.S.
District Court in Dallas, Texas, Mr. Stanford and three of his
companies for orchestrating a fraudulent, multi-billion dollar
investment scheme centering on an US$8 billion Certificate of
Deposit program.

A criminal case was pursued against him before the U.S. District
Court in Houston, Texas.  Mr. Stanford pleaded not guilty to 21
charges of multi-billion dollar fraud, money-laundering and
obstruction of justice.  Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer,
as cited by Agence France-Presse News, said in a 57-page indictment
that Mr. Stanford could face up to 250 years in prison if convicted
on all charges.  Mr. Stanford surrendered to U.S. authorities after
a warrant was issued for his arrest on the criminal charges.


STONE ENERGY: Posts Net Loss of $89.6M in Third Quarter 2016
------------------------------------------------------------
Stone Energy Corporation on Nov. 7 reported financial and
operational results for the third quarter of 2016.  Some items of
note include:

   -- Production volumes exceeded the upper end of third quarter
2016 guidance
   -- Execution of a restructuring support agreement with
noteholders
   -- Execution of a purchase and sale agreement for Appalachian
assets
   -- Amethyst well stimulation initiated

Financial Results

Stone reported a third quarter of 2016 net loss of $89.6 million,
or $16.01 per share, on oil and gas revenue of $93.4 million,
compared to a net loss of $292.0 million, or $52.82 per share, on
oil and gas revenue of $128.4 million in the third quarter of 2015.
The adjusted net loss for the third quarter of 2016, which
excludes impairment charges of $36.5 million, was $41.5 million, or
$7.40 per share.  Net cash provided by operating activities totaled
$35.0 million for the third quarter of 2016, while discretionary
cash flow totaled $24.6 million during the third quarter of 2016,
as compared to $53.3 million and $66.9 million, respectively,
during the third quarter of 2015.  

Net daily production during the third quarter of 2016 averaged 39.1
thousand barrels of oil equivalent (MBoe) per day (235 million
cubic feet of gas equivalent (MMcfe) per day), compared to net
daily production of 29.0 MBoe (174 MMcfe) per day in the second
quarter of 2016 and net daily production of 39.8 MBoe (239 Mcfe)
per day in the third quarter of 2015.  The third quarter 2016
production mix was approximately 43% oil, 38% natural gas and 19%
natural gas liquids (NGLs), and included approximately 20 MBoe (123
MMcfe) per day from the Gulf of Mexico (GOM) and 19 MBoe (112
MMcfe) per day from Appalachia.

Production guidance for the fourth quarter of 2016 is estimated at
41 - 43 MBoe per day (246 - 258 MMcfe per day).  This guidance
assumes the Mary field is online throughout the fourth quarter of
2016 under the interim midstream agreement, with Appalachia
averaging approximately 120 MMcfe – 140 MMcfe per day.  Our full
year production guidance has been adjusted to account for these
factors as well.  Our updated production guidance for fiscal year
2016 is 35 - 37 MBoe (210 - 222 MMcfe) per day.

Prices realized during the third quarter of 2016 averaged $45.50
per barrel of oil, $9.72 per barrel of NGLs and $1.93 per Mcf of
natural gas.  Average realized prices for the third quarter of 2015
were $69.59 per barrel of oil, $7.82 per barrel of NGLs and $2.09
per Mcf of natural gas.  Effective hedging transactions increased
the average realized price of natural gas by $0.30 per Mcf and
increased the average realized price of oil by $3.40 per barrel in
the third quarter of 2016.  Effective hedging transactions
increased the average realized price of natural gas by $0.44 per
Mcf and increased the average realized price of oil by $24.08 per
barrel in the third quarter of 2015.

Lease operating expenses during the third quarter of 2016 totaled
$17.0 million ($4.72 per Boe or $0.79 per Mcfe), compared to $24.2
million ($6.62 per Boe or $1.10 per Mcfe) in the third quarter of
2015.  The decrease in third quarter 2016 lease operating expenses
is primarily attributable to service cost reductions, the
implementation of cost-savings measures and operating efficiencies.
Lease operating expenses are expected to increase in the fourth
quarter of 2016 due to a scheduled well intervention operation on
the deep water Amethyst well.

Other operational expenses during the third quarter of 2016 totaled
$9.1 million, compared to $0.4 million in the third quarter of
2015. The increase is primarily due to charges related to the
terminations of an offshore vessel contract and our Appalachian
drilling rig contract, and rig subsidy and stacking charges
associated with a deep water rig, the Appalachian rig and the
platform rig at Pompano.  Other operational expenses for the nine
months ended September 30, 2016 totaled $49.3 million, and included
$6.0 million relating to a non-cash, cumulative foreign currency
loss, $27.5 million in contract termination charges and $15.3
million in rig subsidy charges.  We expect other operational
expenses to decline significantly in the fourth quarter of 2016 due
to the termination of the rig and vessel contracts.

Transportation, processing and gathering (TP&G) expenses during the
third quarter of 2016 totaled $10.6 million ($2.96 per Boe or $0.49
per Mcfe), compared to $18.2 million ($4.97 per Boe or $0.83 per
Mcfe) during the third quarter of 2015.  This decrease is due
primarily to the beneficial terms of the interim gas gathering and
processing agreement in Appalachia that was executed at the end of
the second quarter of 2016.  Since production rates in Appalachia
continue to improve, we also expect TP&G expenses to increase in
the fourth quarter of 2016.  TP&G guidance for 2016 has been
updated accordingly.

Depreciation, depletion and amortization (DD&A) on oil and gas
properties for the third quarter of 2016 totaled $58.9 million
($16.08 per Boe or $2.68 per Mcfe), compared to $61.9 million
($16.60 per Boe or $2.77 per Mcfe), in the third quarter of 2015.
The decrease is primarily attributable to the ceiling test
write-downs of oil and gas properties.

Salaries, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses (exclusive of
incentive compensation) for the third quarter of 2016 were $15.4
million ($4.29 per Boe or $0.71 per Mcfe), compared to $19.6
million ($5.34 per Boe or $0.89 per Mcfe), in the third quarter of
2015.  The decrease in SG&A was primarily attributable to staff and
other cost reductions and termination charges associated with the
early termination of an office lease.

Incentive compensation expense for the third quarter of 2016 was
$2.2 million, compared to $0.8 million in the third quarter of
2015.  The 2016 incentive compensation cash bonuses are calculated
based on the achievement of certain strategic objectives for each
quarter of 2016. Portions of the 2016 incentive cash bonuses
replace amounts previously awarded to employees as stock-based
compensation, which is reflected in SG&A, resulting in higher
incentive compensation expense in the third quarter of 2016
compared to the third quarter of 2015.

Accretion expense for the third quarter of 2016 was $10.1 million,
compared to $6.5 million in the third quarter of 2015.  The
increase was due to a higher applicable discount rate used to
calculate the present value of the asset retirement obligations
compared to prior years.  Stone expects accretion expense to remain
relatively flat for the remainder of 2016.

Interest expense for the third quarter of 2016 was $16.9 million,
compared to $10.9 million in the third quarter of 2015.  The
increase in interest expense was primarily due to an increase in
borrowed funds, combined with a lower capitalized portion. Stone
expects interest expense to remain relatively flat for the
remainder of 2016.

Restructuring expenses for the third quarter of 2016 were $5.8
million.  These fees related to expenses supporting a restructuring
effort including legal and financial advisory costs for Stone, the
Company's bank group and its noteholders.  The quarterly amount of
restructuring fees is difficult to forecast as they will be highly
dependent on the level of legal and financial advisory activity.

Capital Expenditures Update

Capital expenditures for the third quarter of 2016 were
approximately $25.8 million, which included $7.7 million of
previously committed seismic expenditures and $4.4 million of
plugging and abandonment expenditures.  Third quarter 2016 capital
expenditures included drilling two horizontal wells in Appalachia.
During the third quarter of 2016, we incurred charges of
approximately $9.1 million for rig stacking or subsidy expenses,
the termination of our drilling rig contract with an Appalachian
rig contractor and the termination of an offshore vessel contract,
all of which were charged to other operational expenses and
excluded from capital expenditures.  Further, $4.8 million of SG&A
expenses and $6.9 million of interest were capitalized during the
third quarter of 2016, and were excluded from the capital
expenditure budget.  Third quarter 2015 capital expenditures were
approximately $124.6 million, which included $23.9 million of
plugging and abandonment expenditures, and excluded $6.0 million of
SG&A expenses and $10.3 million of interest that were capitalized.
For the nine months ended September 30, 2016, capital expenditures
totaled $139.2 million, which included $15.4 million of seismic
expenditures and $13.5 million of plugging and abandonment
expenditures.  The rig stacking, subsidy and termination charges
for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 totaled $42.8 million
and were included in other operational expenses.

In early 2016, Stone's Board of Directors authorized an initial
2016 capital expenditure budget of $200 million, which did not
include rig subsidies or rig stacking expenses that were projected
to be approximately $40 million to $50 million.  The budget was
primarily focused on the Pompano platform rig development program
and drilling one deep water development well and one or two deep
water exploration wells.

However, to further reduce capital expenditures for 2016, we
elected to temporarily stack the Pompano platform drilling rig in
place.  The Company currently expects to resume drilling operations
in early 2017.  In addition, as previously announced, the Company
reached an agreement to terminate its deep water rig contract,
offshore vessel contract, and Appalachian rig contract.

This updated rig schedule and other cost reduction efforts have
decreased the Company's projected annual capital expenditures,
which are now expected to approximate $160 million to $170 million
for 2016.  The budget excludes acquisitions, capitalized SG&A and
interest.  As noted above, the rig stacking, subsidy and
termination charges were accounted for in other operational
expenses (not capital expenditures) and are expected to be
approximately $46 million for 2016.

Supplemental Bonding Update

The Company said "As previously reported, on March 21, 2016, the
Bureau of Ocean Energy Management ('BOEM') notified Stone that we
no longer qualified for a supplemental bonding waiver under the
financial criteria specified in BOEM's guidance to lessees at that
time. In late March 2016, we proposed a tailored plan to BOEM for
financial assurances relating to our abandonment obligations, which
provides for posting incremental financial assurances in favor of
BOEM.  On May 13, 2016, we received notice letters from BOEM
rescinding its demand for supplemental bonding with the
understanding that we will continue to work with BOEM to finalize
the implementation of our long-term tailored plan. We have
submitted our tailored plan to BOEM and are awaiting its review and
approval."

"Additionally, on July 14, 2016, BOEM issued a Notice to Lessees
('NTL') that augments requirements for the posting of additional
financial assurances by offshore lessees.  The NTL, effective
September 12, 2016, does away with the agency's past practice of
waiving supplemental bonding obligations where a company could
demonstrate a certain level of financial strength.  Instead, BOEM
will allow companies to 'self-insure,' but only up to 10% of a
company's 'tangible net worth.'  BOEM tentatively expects to
approve or deny tailored plans submitted by lessees on or around
September 11, 2017, although extensions may be granted to companies
actively working with BOEM to finalize tailored plans. We received
a 'Self-Insurance' letter from BOEM dated
September 30, 2016 stating that we are not eligible to self-insure
any of our additional security obligations.  We received a
'Proposal' letter from BOEM dated October 20, 2016 indicating that
additional security will be required, and we intend to work with
BOEM to adjust our previously submitted tailored plan for the
provision of new financial assurances required to be posted as a
result of the new NTL.  Our revised proposed plan would require
approximately $35 million to $40 million of incremental financial
assurance or bonding for 2016 through 2017, a portion of which may
require cash collateral.  Under the revised plan, additional
financial assurance would be required for subsequent years.  There
is no assurance this tailored plan will be approved by BOEM."

Liquidity Update   

"As previously reported, on June 14, 2016, we entered into an
amendment with our bank group, which amended the credit agreement
to (i) increase the borrowing base to $360.0 million from $300.0
million, (ii) provide for no redetermination of the borrowing base
by the lenders until January 15, 2017, other than an automatic
reduction upon the sale of certain of the company's properties,
(iii) permit second lien indebtedness to refinance the existing
1 3/4% Senior Convertible Notes due in March 2017 (the "2017
Convertible Notes") and 7 1/2% Senior Notes due in 2022 ("the 2022
Notes"), (iv) revise the maximum Consolidated Funded Leverage ratio
to be 5.25x for the fiscal quarter ending June 30, 2016, 6.50x for
the fiscal quarter ending September 30, 2016, 9.50x for the fiscal
quarter ending December 31, 2016 and 3.75x thereafter, (v) require
minimum liquidity of at least $125.0 million until January 15,
2017, (vi) impose limitations on capital expenditures to $60.0
million from June 2016 through December 2016 (excluding up to $25
million for completion expenditures in Appalachia), (vii) grant the
lenders a perfected security interest in all deposit accounts and
(viii) provide for anti-hoarding cash provisions for amounts in
excess of $50.0 million to apply after December 10, 2016.  Upon
execution of the amendment, we repaid $56.8 million of borrowings,
resulting in the elimination of our borrowing base deficiency and
bringing our total borrowings and letters of credit outstanding
under the credit facility in conformity with the $360.0 million
borrowing base.  We were in compliance with all covenants under the
amended bank credit facility as of September 30, 2016, however, the
minimum liquidity requirement and other restrictions under the
credit facility may prevent us from being able to meet our interest
payment obligation on the 2022 Notes in the fourth quarter of 2016
as well as the subsequent maturity of our 2017 Convertible Notes.
Additionally, we anticipate that we could exceed the Consolidated
Funded Leverage financial covenant of 3.75x at the end of the first
quarter of 2017 unless a material portion of our debt is repaid,
reduced or exchanged into equity."

"We have an interest payment obligation under our 2022 Notes of
approximately $29.2 million, due on November 15, 2016.  The
indenture governing the 2022 Notes provides a 30-day grace period
that extends the latest date for making this cash interest payment
to December 15, 2016 before an event of default occurs under the
indenture, which would give the trustee or the holders of at least
25% in principal amount of the 2022 Notes the option to accelerate
payment of the principal plus accrued and unpaid interest on the
2022 Notes.

"As of September 30, 2016, the current portion of long-term debt of
$292.8 million consisted of $292.4 million of 2017 Convertible
Notes and $0.4 million of principal payments due within one year on
our building loan.  On September 30 and November 7, 2016, we had
$341.5 million of outstanding borrowings and $12.5 million of
outstanding letters of credit, leaving $6.0 million of availability
under the bank credit facility.

"As of September 30, 2016 and November 7, 2016, Stone had cash on
hand of approximately $182.4 million and $181.5 million,
respectively."

Restructuring Update

Restructuring Support Agreement

"As previously announced, on October 20, 2016, we entered into a
restructuring support agreement (the 'RSA') with noteholders
holding approximately 85.4% of the aggregate principal amount of
the 2017 Convertible Notes and the 2022 Notes (together the 'Notes'
and the holders thereof, the 'Noteholders'), to support a
restructuring on the terms of a pre-packaged plan of reorganization
(the 'Plan').  The RSA contemplates that Stone will file for
voluntary relief under chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy
Code (the 'Bankruptcy Code') in a United States Bankruptcy Court
(the 'Bankruptcy Court') on or before December 9, 2016 to implement
the Plan in accordance with the term sheet annexed to the RSA.
Pursuant to the terms of the RSA, the Noteholders will receive (i)
95% of the common stock in reorganized Stone, (ii) $225 million of
new 7.5% second lien notes due 2022 and (iii) $150 million of the
net cash proceeds from the sale of Stone's approximately 86,000 net
acres in the Appalachia regions of Pennsylvania and West Virginia
(the 'Properties') plus 85% of the net cash proceeds from the sale
of the Properties in excess of $350 million, if any.  Existing
common stockholders of Stone will receive their pro rata share of
5% of the common stock in reorganized Stone and warrants for up to
15% of the post-petition equity, exercisable upon the company
reaching certain benchmarks pursuant to the terms of the proposed
new warrants. Further, all claims of creditors with unsecured
claims other than claims by the Noteholders, including vendors,
shall be unaltered and will be paid in full in the ordinary course
of business to the extent such claims are undisputed."

"The RSA contains certain covenants on the part of Stone and the
Noteholders who are signatories to the RSA, including that such
Noteholders will vote in favor of the Plan, support the sale of the
Properties, and otherwise facilitate the restructuring transaction,
in each case subject to certain terms and conditions in the RSA.
Consummation of the Plan will be subject to customary conditions
and other requirements, as well as the sale by Stone of the
Properties for a cash purchase price of at least $350 million and
approval of the Bankruptcy Court.  The RSA also provides for
termination by each party, or by either party, upon the occurrence
of certain events, including without limitation, termination by the
Noteholders upon Stone's failure to achieve certain milestones set
forth in Schedule 1 to the RSA, as amended by the RSA Amendment,
discussed below."

"On November 4, 2016, we entered into an amendment to the RSA (the
'RSA Amendment') with the Noteholders pursuant to which (i) Stone
will be obligated to, at any time upon the written request of the
Noteholders or their counsel, provide in writing to counsel to the
Noteholders the good faith estimate of Stone -- together with
documentation requested by the Noteholders or their counsel -- of
any cure amounts or other payment obligations of Stone arising or
resulting from the assumption of executory contracts or unexpired
leases on both a 'per contract' basis and in the aggregate, (ii)
the Noteholders will have the option to terminate the RSA at any
time that the Noteholders determine, in their sole discretion, that
the total amount of all such payments exceeds an amount acceptable
to the Noteholders, (iii) the Noteholders will have the unilateral
right to extend the automatic termination of the RSA if the
restructuring transactions contemplated by the RSA are not
consummated by the one-hundredth (100th) calendar day after the
Company files for chapter 11 bankruptcy, and (iv) solicitation will
commence by November 10, 2016."

Assuming implementation of the Plan, Stone expects that it will
eliminate approximately $850 million in principal of outstanding
debt and reduce its annual interest payment burden by approximately
$46 million.

Although Stone intends to pursue the restructuring in accordance
with the terms set forth in the RSA and the RSA Amendment, there
can be no assurance that we will be successful in completing a
restructuring or any other similar transaction on the terms set
forth in the RSA and the RSA Amendment, on different terms or at
all.

Purchase and Sale Agreement

As previously announced, on October 20, 2016, Stone entered into a
purchase and sale agreement (the "PSA") with TH Exploration III,
LLC, an affiliate of Tug Hill, Inc., for the sale of the Properties
for $360 million in cash, subject to customary purchase price
adjustments (the "Purchase Price").

The sale has an effective date of June 1, 2016.  From October 20,
2016 through December 19, 2016 (the "Diligence Period"), the
intended purchaser will conduct customary due diligence to assess
the aggregate dollar value of any title and environmental defects
associated with the Properties.  The parties expect to close the
sale by February 25, 2017, subject to customary closing conditions
and approval by the Bankruptcy Court.

The PSA may be terminated, upon the occurrence of certain events,
subject to certain exceptions, including without limitation (i) if
the closing has not occurred by March 1, 2017, (ii) if, on or prior
to the end of the Diligence Period, title and environmental defect
amounts (after application of customary thresholds and
deductibles), casualty losses and the value of any assets excluded
from the Properties due to the exercise of preferential purchase
rights or consents equal or exceed $10 million in the aggregate,
and (iii) if Stone fails to file for bankruptcy on or before
December 9, 2016.

Bank Credit Facility

The Company said "We have also been engaged in discussions and have
exchanged proposals with the lenders under our bank credit facility
with respect to the treatment of the bank credit facility in a
chapter 11 proceeding and a related amendment to the bank credit
facility; however, no agreement has been reached.  While we expect
to continue discussions and related negotiations with the lenders
under our bank credit facility, there can be no assurance that an
agreement will be reached."

Operational Update  

The Company said "Pompano Platform Production Update (Deep Water).
On June 28, 2016, the gas processing plant in Pascagoula,
Mississippi experienced an explosion that shut down the facility,
which is currently expected to return to operation late in the
fourth quarter of 2016.  Although Stone has no direct interest in
the plant, it processed approximately 20-25 MMcf per day (gross) of
gas produced from the Pompano platform.  On July 21, 2016, we
negotiated an agreement to flow gas to an alternate market, which
allowed us to produce oil and gas from the Pompano platform with no
additional pipeline curtailments.  Our arrangement does not
guarantee available capacity, so gas re-injection remains a
fallback option if needed."

"Mississippi Canyon 26 – No. 1 Amethyst Well (Deep Water).  As
previously reported, production from our Amethyst well was shut in
during late April 2016 to allow for a technical evaluation.  During
the first week of November, we initiated acid stimulation work and
are intermittently flowing the well while we continue to observe
and evaluate the well's performance.  We have identified potential
factors which may explain the reason for the April 2016 pressure
decline and ultimate production shut in.  If the well continues to
perform, we expect to flow and evaluate the well for an extended
period of time at a 10-15 MMcf per day rate, although the gas
export pipeline capacity may be temporarily restricted due to the
Pascagoula gas plant outage.   

"Mississippi Canyon 109 – No. A-22 Well Recompletion (Deep
Water).  On September 27, 2016, we initiated recompletion
operations on the Mississippi Canyon 109 No. A-22 ST1 well to
target the "H" sand in the Pliocene interval.  We expect the well
to resume production in mid-November with initial volumes estimated
to range from 300 to 350 Boe per day.  Stone holds a 100% working
interest in this well, which ties back to our Amberjack platform.

"Pompano Platform Drilling Program (Deep Water).  In early June
2016, we temporarily stacked the platform rig in place to preserve
liquidity.  We currently expect to resume platform drilling
operations in early 2017.  There are up to three additional
development wells to be drilled from the Pompano platform. Each
additional development well is expected to provide production
volumes ranging from 500 to over 1,500 Boe per day per well after
hook-up.  Stone holds a 100% working interest in these wells.

"Mississippi Canyon 117 - Rampart Deep and Rampart Shallow (Deep
Water).  The Rampart exploration prospects (Deep and Shallow)
target the Miocene interval and are expected to be tied back to the
Pompano platform, if successful.  Stone currently holds a 100%
working interest in the prospect and expects to reduce its working
interest before drilling would commence.  The prospects are located
nine miles from Stone's Pompano platform, and each well is
estimated to take three months to drill.

"Mississippi Canyon 72 - Derbio (Deep Water).  The Derbio prospect
is located five miles from Stone's Pompano platform and targets the
Miocene interval.  If successful, a tie-back to the Pompano
platform is likely.  Stone currently holds a 100% working interest
in the prospect, although a reduction to its working interest is
expected before drilling would commence. The well is estimated to
take three months to drill.

"Alaminos Canyon 943 - Lamprey (Deep Water).  We have engaged in
discussions with potential partners regarding the 100% owned
Lamprey prospect, and we have not secured a partner on this project
to date.   A significant reduction to Stone's working interest
would be required before progressing this project.

"Appalachia Basin.  As reported on June 29, 2016, Stone entered
into an interim gas gathering and processing agreement to produce
the Mary field in Appalachia.  The initial term of the interim
agreement was through August 31, 2016, and it continues on a month
to month basis thereafter, unless terminated by either party.
During the third quarter of 2016, production from the Mary field
averaged over 90 MMcfe per day, with total Appalachia volumes
averaging 112 MMcfe per day.  Most wells in Appalachia have
returned to production and we expect daily production rates from
Appalachia to average 120 MMcfe to 140 MMcfe per day in the fourth
quarter.

"During the third quarter of 2016, we negotiated the termination of
the contract for the Appalachia drilling rig.  Due to capital
constraints, we expect to limit Appalachian activities for the
remainder of 2016 to maintaining production and core leasehold
interests and to other maintenance operations."

New York Stock Exchange Notifications

The Company said "On April 29, 2016, we were notified by the New
York Stock Exchange ("NYSE") that we were not in compliance with
the NYSE's continued listing requirements, as the average closing
price of our shares of common stock had fallen below $1.00 per
share over a period of 30 consecutive trading days, which is the
minimum average share price for continued listing on the NYSE.  On
May 17, 2016, we were notified by the NYSE that our average global
market capitalization had been less than $50 million over a
consecutive 30 trading-day period at the same time that our
stockholders' equity was less than $50 million, which is
non-compliant with the NYSE's rules."

"At the close of business on June 10, 2016, we effected a 1-for-10
reverse stock split in order to increase the market price per share
of our common stock in order to regain compliance with the NYSE's
minimum share price requirement.  Stone's shares of common stock
continue to trade on the NYSE under the symbol "SGY" but trade
under the new CUSIP number 861642304.  We were notified on July 1,
2016 that we cured the minimum share price deficiency and that we
were no longer considered non-compliant with the $1.00 per share
average closing price requirement, although we remain non-compliant
with the $50 million market capitalization and stockholders' equity
requirements.

"On June 30, 2016, we submitted our 18-month business plan for
curing the average market capitalization and stockholders' equity
deficiencies to the NYSE.  The NYSE accepted the plan on August 4,
2016 and will continue to review the company on a quarterly basis
for compliance with the plan.  Upon acceptance of the plan by the
NYSE, and after two consecutive quarters of sustained market
capitalization above $50 million, we would no longer be
non-compliant with the market capitalization and stockholders'
equity requirements.  During the 18-month cure period, our shares
of common stock will continue to be listed and traded on the NYSE,
unless we experience other circumstances that subject us to
delisting, including abnormally low market capitalization.  If we
fail to meet the material aspects of the plan or any of the
quarterly milestones, the NYSE will review the circumstances and
variance, and determine whether such variance warrants commencement
of suspension and delisting procedures.  Upon a delisting from the
NYSE, we would commence trading on the OTC Pink.  On September 20,
2016, we submitted a second quarter 2016 update to our plan to
mitigate listing deficiencies, and the update was accepted by the
NYSE on September 22, 2016.  Upon filing, or announcement of
intention to file, for relief under chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy
Code, a company below a listing standard is subject to immediate
suspension and delisting. However, if we are profitable or have
positive cash flow, or if we are demonstrably in sound financial
health despite the bankruptcy proceedings, the NYSE may evaluate
our plan in light of the filing or announcement of intent to file
without immediately suspending and delisting our common stock."

TIDEWATER INC: Posts Q2 Net Loss, In Debt Talks with Lenders
------------------------------------------------------------
Tidewater Inc. on Nov. 7 reported a second quarter net loss for the
period ended Sept. 30, 2016, of $178.5 million, or $3.79 per common
share, on revenues of $143.7 million.  For the same quarter last
year, net loss was $43.8 million, or $0.93 per common share, on
revenues of $271.9 million.  The immediately preceding quarter
ended June 30, 2016, had a net loss of $89.1 million, or $1.89 per
common share, on revenues of $167.9 million.

Included in the net loss for the quarter ended Sept. 30, 2016 were
the following:

   -- $129.6 million ($129.6 million after-tax, or $2.75 per share)
in non-cash asset impairment charges that resulted from impairment
reviews undertaken during the September 2016 quarter.

   -- $2.5 million ($2.2 million after-tax, or $0.05 per share) of
foreign exchange losses resulting primarily from the strengthening
of the Norwegian kroner on liabilities relative to the U.S.
dollar.

   -- $0.6 million ($0.6 million after-tax, or $0.01 per share) of
foreign exchange gains which is included in Equity in net earnings
(losses) of unconsolidated companies and related to the company's
Angola joint venture, Sonatide.

Included in the net loss for the prior fiscal year's quarter ended
September 30, 2015 were the following:

   -- $31.7 million ($31.6 million after-tax, or $0.67 per share)
in non-cash asset impairment charges that resulted from impairment
reviews undertaken during the September 2015 quarter.

   -- A $7.6 million ($6.3 million after-tax, or $0.13 per share)
restructuring charge related to severance and other termination
costs resulting from right-sizing efforts during the September 2015

profitability (so called "deemed profit" regimes.)

Status of Discussions with Lenders and Noteholders

The decrease in oil and gas prices that began in the second half of
fiscal 2015 and continued throughout fiscal 2016 has led to
materially lower levels of spending for offshore exploration and
development by the company's customers globally.  In addition,
newly constructed vessels have been delivered over the last several
years, exacerbating weak vessel utilization.  With reduced demand
for offshore support vessels along with a higher number of newer
generation vessels, the company has experienced a significant
decline in the utilization of its vessels, average day rates
received and vessel revenue.  The company has implemented a number
of significant cost reduction measures to mitigate the effects of
significantly lower vessel revenue and, given the currently
challenging offshore support vessel market and business outlook,
continues its efforts to reduce its operating costs and preserve
its liquidity.

At June 30, 2016 and September 30, 2016, the company did not meet
the 3.0x minimum interest coverage ratio covenant (the "minimum
interest coverage ratio requirement") contained in its Revolving
Credit and Term Loan Agreement ("Bank Loan Agreement"), the Troms
Offshore Debt and the 2013 Senior Note Agreement (the "2013 Note
Agreement").  Failure to meet the minimum interest coverage ratio
requirement would have resulted in covenant noncompliance; however,
as discussed in more detail below, limited waivers were received.
Without these limited waivers, the respective lenders and/or the
noteholders would have had the ability to declare the company to be
in default of the Bank Loan Agreement, the Troms Offshore Debt
and/or the 2013 Note Agreement, as applicable, and accelerate the
indebtedness thereunder, the effect of which would be to likewise
cause the company's other Senior Notes, which were issued in 2010
and 2011, to be in default.

The company's bank loans and its notes are linked together by
cross-default provisions, such that if either the lenders or the
noteholders declare the loans or notes to be in default, the other
indebtedness likewise will be in default, and all of the debt at
that time may be accelerated if the majority of lenders or
noteholders under the respective debt agreements elect to
accelerate.  If the company is not in compliance with covenants set
forth in the agreements evidencing these debt obligations, and such
non-compliance is not waived, then the holders of a majority of
loans may declare the bank loans to be in default, and the holders
of a majority in principal amount of any of the three classes of
the company's notes may declare that class of notes to be in
default.  In such event, all of our indebtedness would be
accelerated, and the company will not have sufficient liquidity to
repay those accelerated amounts.  The decision as to whether to
accelerate the debt upon the company's non-compliance with the debt
covenants lies with the lenders and noteholders.

While the company is continuing to work toward amendments to its
various debt arrangements that will be acceptable to all parties,
there is a possibility that the lenders, noteholders and the
company will not be able to negotiate new debt terms that are
acceptable to all parties, in which case the company will likely
seek reorganization under Chapter 11 of the federal bankruptcy
laws, which could include a restructuring of the company's various
debt obligations and could place equity holders at significant risk
of losing some or all of their interests in the company.

Given that the company expected it would not meet the minimum
interest coverage ratio requirement set forth in the Bank Loan
Agreement, the Troms Offshore Debt and the 2013 Note Agreement
during fiscal 2017, which could result in the acceleration of the
debt under these agreements and the company's other Senior Notes,
the report of the company's independent registered public
accounting firm that accompanied the company's audited consolidated
financial statements for the fiscal year ended
March 31, 2016 (the "audit opinion") contained an explanatory
paragraph regarding the company's ability to continue as a going
concern.  Such going concern explanatory paragraph was required
because the company's internal forecast indicated that, within
fiscal 2017, the company may no longer be in compliance with the
minimum interest coverage ratio requirement.

In addition, the Bank Loan Agreement and the Troms Offshore Debt
require that the company receive an unqualified audit opinion from
an independent certified public accountant that is not subject to a
going concern or similar modification.  The inability of the
company to obtain an audit opinion without any modification is an
independent event of default under these agreements which would
allow the lenders to accelerate the indebtedness thereunder, the
effect of which would be to likewise cause all of the company's
Senior Notes to be in default.  The explanatory paragraph in the
audit opinion also references the audit opinion-related event of
default under various borrowing arrangements as an uncertainty that
raises substantial doubt about the company's ability to continue as
a going concern.  As a result of the company's failure to receive
an audit opinion with no modifications from the company's
independent certified public accountants, and because the waivers
are for a limited period that is less than one year, all of the
company's indebtedness has been classified as a current liability
in the accompanying consolidated balance sheet since March 31,
2016.

As previously reported, the company obtained limited waivers from
the necessary lenders which waived the unqualified audit opinion
requirement and/or waived the minimum interest coverage ratio
requirement until October 21, 2016.  Prior to the October 21, 2016
expiry of such limited waivers, the company obtained limited
waivers from the necessary lenders and noteholders which extend the
waiver of the unqualified audit opinion requirement and/or waive
the minimum interest coverage ratio requirement until November 11,
2016.

The company continues to engage in discussions with its principal
lenders and noteholders to amend the company's various debt
arrangements in advance of the expiration of the waivers on
November 11, 2016.  In its October 21, 2016 press release
announcing the most recent extension, the company reported that
recent industry data, including data regarding projected levels of
offshore drilling activity, a primary driver of activity within the
offshore service vessel industry, had led the company to conclude
that important debt terms will require further negotiation.  Such
negotiations, if successfully concluded, would require the company
to make certain concessions under the existing agreements, such as
providing collateral to secure the Bank Loan Agreement, the Troms
Offshore Debt and the Senior Notes, repaying a portion of the
indebtedness outstanding under the Bank Loan Agreement, accepting a
reduction in total borrowing capacity under the revolving credit
facility, paying a higher rate of interest, issuing some form of
equity or equity linked compensation enhancement, paying down a
portion of the Troms Offshore Debt and/or Senior Notes, or some
combination of the above. In addition, such amendments will need to
address the audit opinion requirement of the Bank Loan Agreement
and the Troms Offshore Debt (the waiver of which has been extended
until November 11, 2016). Obtaining the covenant relief will
require the company to reach an agreement that satisfies
potentially divergent interests of its principal lenders and
noteholders.

The company's unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements
as of and for the quarter and six months ended September 30, 2016
were prepared assuming the company would continue as a going
concern, which contemplates continuity of operations, realization
of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course
of business for the twelve month period following the date of these
consolidated financial statements.

Headquartered in New Orleans, Louisiana, Tidewater is a provider of
Offshore Service Vessels (OSVs) to the global energy industry.

of $21.40 million on $590.75 million of net revenue for the three

industry-first partnership with the largest airline in India,
IndiGo, a long-term agreement with easyJet to continue provision of
our multi award-winning mobile services, and a new data and
analytics partnership with Mastercard.  We are also pleased with
several new agency wins in key regions, which will support future
growth, as well as continued momentum in our BtoB payments
business, eNett, having delivered net revenue growth of 72% for the
nine months of this year."

UNITED MOBILE: U.S. Trustee Unable to Appoint Committee
-------------------------------------------------------
An official committee of unsecured creditors has not yet been
appointed in the Chapter 11 case of United Mobile Solutions, LLC,
as of Nov. 8, according to a court docket.

                      About United Mobile

United Mobile Solutions, LLC, filed a Chapter 11 petition (Bankr.

VALEANT PHARMACEUTICALS: Moody's Lowers CFR to B3; Outlook Neg.
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded the ratings of Valeant
Pharmaceuticals International, Inc. and subsidiaries, including the
Corporate Family Rating to B3 from B2 and the Probability of
Default Rating to B3-PD from B2-PD.  Other downgrades include the
senior secured bank credit facilities to Ba3 (LGD 2) from Ba2 (LGD
2) and senior unsecured debt to Caa1 (LGD 5) from B3 (LGD 5).  At
the same time, Moody's affirmed Valeant's SGL-3 Speculative Grade
Liquidity Rating.  The rating outlook is negative.

The downgrade reflects Valeant's challenges in turning around its
specialty pharmaceuticals business, resulting in weak earnings
trends and financial leverage remaining above Moody's earlier
expectations.

"Incorporating recent operating trends as well as exposure to
upcoming patent expirations, we anticipate that Valeant's
debt/EBITDA will remain above 7.0x at least through 2017," stated
Michael Levesque, Moody's Senior Vice President.

With higher financial leverage, Valeant will become more vulnerable
to any significant operating setbacks or legal liabilities arising
from government investigations.

Ratings downgraded:

Valeant Pharmaceuticals International, Inc.:

  Corporate Family Rating to B3 from B2
  Probability of Default Rating to B3-PD from B2-PD
  Senior secured bank credit facilities to Ba3 (LGD 2) from Ba2
   (LGD 2)
  Senior unsecured notes to Caa1 (LGD 5) from B3 (LGD 5)

Valeant Pharmaceuticals International:

  Senior unsecured notes to Caa1 (LGD 5) from B3 (LGD 5)

VRX Escrow Corp. (obligations assumed by Valeant Pharmaceuticals
International, Inc.):

  Senior unsecured notes to Caa1 (LGD 5 ) from B3 (LGD 5)

Rating affirmed:

Valeant Pharmaceuticals International, Inc.:
  Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating at SGL-3
The outlook is negative.

                         RATINGS RATIONALE

Valeant's B3 Corporate Family Rating reflects the company's very
high financial leverage with gross debt/EBITDA above 7.0 times, and
significant challenges in turning around the specialty
pharmaceuticals segment.  This business faces volume and pricing
pressure in dermatology and other branded product lines as Valeant
continues transitioning from its prior mail order focus towards a
retail fulfillment arrangement with Walgreens.  Valeant's neurology
unit also faces significant pricing pressure, as well as the
upcoming patent expirations on several drugs.  The company is
confronting significant scrutiny on its pricing practices,
including those on products acquired through acquisitions, and
uncertainty related to government investigations.  Elevated
financial leverage creates refinancing risk, although Valeant's
senior unsecured debt does not face large maturities until 2020.

The ratings are supported by Valeant's good scale in the global
pharmaceutical industry with annual revenue above $9 billion, its
strong diversity, its high profit margins, and its good cash flow.
In addition, the ratings are supported by management's commitment
to reduce debt/EBITDA, using excess cash flow for debt repayment.
The rating also reflects Valeant's good margins despite erosion in
its net pricing levels, and its global presence with well-respected
brands including Bausch & Lomb.

The SGL-3 Speculative Grade Liquidity rating reflects adequate
liquidity based a combination of factors.  Positive factors include
ample cash on hand, the lack of any material debt maturities and
amortization payments in 2017, and good cash flow. Negative factors
include large revolver borrowings and the uncertain impact of
litigation.

The rating outlook is negative, reflecting the combination of very
high financial leverage, uncertain stabilization of operating
trends and unresolved legal exposures.  Without greater progress in
the turnaround, these factors will constrain Valeant's access to
capital, which will eventually be required to refinance debt
maturities.  The negative outlook also reflects the potential that
certain scenarios of business restructuring would be credit
negative, if the sales of lucrative business lines leave the
company with weaker performing operations.

Factors that could lead to a downgrade include: significant
reductions in pricing or utilization trends, escalation of legal
issues or large litigation-related cash outflows, or a
deterioration in liquidity.  Sustaining debt/EBITDA above 7.5
times, or pursuing asset divestitures that leave the company with
higher financial leverage and a weaker business profile could also
result in a downgrade.

Conversely, factors that could lead to an upgrade include restoring
credibility through solid performance and underlying growth,
reducing debt with free cash flow, making progress at resolving
legal proceedings, and sustaining debt/EBITDA below 6.0 times.
The principal methodology used in these ratings was Global
Pharmaceutical Industry published in December 2012.


VALEANT PHARMACEUTICALS: Struggles Bad Omen For Industry
--------------------------------------------------------
Robert Cyran, writing for The New York Times' DealBook, reported
that a disastrous quarter for Valeant Pharmaceuticals is a bad sign
of things to come for a whole industry.

According to the report, the embattled company again slashed its
profit forecast, this time to below the lower end of a previous
range.  The report related that simply charging more has worked up
and down the pharmaceutical food chain for a decade.  Many
benefited, but drugmakers were the most obvious winners, the report
said.  Biotech companies including Amgen raised prices to create
much of their earnings growth.

Valeant, and similar specialty manufacturers such as Endo
International, are particularly vulnerable, the report said.  They
were built on debt-fueled mergers and acquisitions and higher
prices, the report noted.  Revenue is shrinking because of bigger
discounts, the report further noted.  The $1 billion write-down
Valeant disclosed confirms that assets are worth much less than
originally believed, the report said.  Its $30 billion of borrowed
money looks more daunting with each new threat to expected cash
flow, the report added.

It would be convenient to dismiss Valeant as a single company
backed by aggressive, pushy investors laboring under the duress of
a buying binge led by a failed management team, but but also an
indicator of much more, the report said.

                       About Valeant

Ratings Services said that it has lowered its corporate credit
ratings on Valeant Pharmaceuticals International Inc. to 'B' from
'B+' and placed both the corporate credit rating and the
issue-level ratings on CreditWatch with developing implications.


VERTEX ENERGY: Incurs $1.04 Million Net Loss in Third Quarter
-------------------------------------------------------------
Vertex Energy, Inc. filed with the Securities and Exchange
Commission its quarterly report on Form 10-Q disclosing a net loss
attributable to common shareholders of $1.04 million on $28.46
million of revenues for the three months ended Sept. 30, 2016,
compared to a net loss attributable to common shareholders of $2.97
million on $39.26 million of revenues for the three months ended
Sept. 30, 2015.

For the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2016, the Company reported a
net loss attributable to common shareholders of $9.54 million on
$67.02 million of revenues compared to a net loss attributable to
common shareholders of $20.38 million on $126.06 million of
revenues for the same period during the prior year.

As of Sept. 30, 2016, Vertex had $86.24 million in total assets,
$25.72 million in total liabilities, $22.13 million in temporary
equity and $38.38 million in total equity.

Vertex's CEO, Benjamin P. Cowart said, "I am very pleased with our
performance in the third quarter, as we met our internal
expectations related to spreads, charge for oil and our day-to-day
operations.  For the quarter, we held onto most of the margin.
Overall, our spreads were good and are improving, and the oil
markets were stable compared to quarters in the recent past.  This
helped us exceed our internal expectations and we had positive
EBITDA of $1.8 million for the three months ended September 30,
2016."

Mr. Cowart concluded, "The marine fuels market is improving and we
should expect better spreads in the fourth quarter.  We are hopeful
that this represents the beginning of a positive trend. Although it
is early in the fourth quarter, we are seeing a 3 to 5 cent per
gallon improvement in our marine fuel sales from our Marrero
facility."

W.E. YODER: May Enter Into Insurance Premium Finance Agreement

unable to maintain and renew its Business Insurance Coverage.

finance charges in the amount of $557.7, which is interest at an
annual rate of 2.99%.

     (5) Following a cash down payment of $30,486, the first
payment under the Agreement is due on Dec. 1, 2016, and subsequent
payments are due on or about the first of each succeeding month.

     (6) As collateral to secure the repayment of the indebtedness
due under the Agreement, the Debtor is granting Prime Rate a first
and only security interest in:

           (i) Debtor's right, title and interest in any and all
unearned or return premiums and dividends which may become due
under the policies being purchased, and

          (ii) any loss payments which reduce the Unearned
Premiums, subject to any mortgagee or loss payee interests.

The Debtor and Prime Rate have agreed to these adequate protection
terms:

     (a) The Debtor be authorized and directed to timely make all
payments due under the Agreement and Prime Rate be authorized to
receive and apply such payment to the indebtedness owed by the
Debtor to Prime Rate as provided in the Agreement; and
  
     (b) If the Debtor does not make any of the payments due under
the Agreement as they become due, the automatic stay shall
automatically lift to enable Prime Rate and/or third parties,
including, the insurance companies providing the Policies, to take
all steps necessary and appropriate to cancel the Policies,
collect
the collateral and apply such collateral to the indebtedness owed
to Prime Rate by the Debtor.

Family Rating, Caa1-PD Probability of Default Rating, B3 senior
secured bank credit facility rating and stable outlook are not
impacted by jury-awarded monetary damages of $3.0 million that it
must pay to the plaintiff in a defamation lawsuit.

Wenner Media LLC, headquartered in New York, NY, and owned and
controlled by the Wenner family, is a publisher of entertainment
and lifestyle magazines in the United States.  Excluding Rolling
Stone magazine, which was carved out of the restricted group and
has a circulation of approximately 1.45 million, Wenner's Us Weekly
and Men's Journal magazines (comprising the restricted group's
assets) generate combined weekly/monthly circulation of roughly 2.7
million.



WTE-S&S AG: Court Extends Plan Filing Period Thru March 31
----------------------------------------------------------
Judge Donald R. Cassling of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Northern District of Illinois extended WTE S&S AG Enterprises LLC's
exclusive periods for filing a plan of reorganization and
disclosure statement and soliciting acceptances to the plan, to
March 31, 2017 and May 31, 2017, respectively.

The Debtor previously sought extension of its exclusive periods,
contending that it has been diligently pursuing the administration
of its Chapter 11 case with a view toward formulating a prompt exit
strategy.  The Debtor further contended that its the litigation
against GHD, Inc., a/k/a DVO, Inc. for breach of contract, was
recently set for trial before the Court beginning in late February
2017.  

The Debtor told the Court that the results of its litigation will
have a major impact upon the actual terms and conditions of any
Plan in the Chapter 11 case, so that requiring the Debtor to
propose a Plan before the conclusion of the Debtor's litigation
will only result in unnecessary administrative claims arising in
connection with a Plan that will have to be modified based upon the
results in the Debtor's litigation.  The Debtor further told the
Court that the unnecessary administrative claims can be avoided by
extending the Debtor's exclusive periods.

The Debtor related that it was in the process of commencing
discovery with S&S AG Enterprises, LLC with respect to the Digester
Contract, and, and if necessary, the Land Lease, under Rule 2004 of
the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure.  The Debtor further
related that the Digester Contract and the Land Lease are the most
critical contracts affecting the Debtor's business operations, and
a complete understanding of the claims under the contracts is
essential to the issues relating to the assumption of the contracts
as well as the treatment of any claims under the contracts under
any Plan.

            About WTE S&S AG Enterprises, LLC

WTE-S&S AG Enterprises, LLC, is a limited liability company formed
for the purpose of constructing an anaerobic digester on the
largest dairy farm in Door County, Wisconsin, so as to generate
electricity from harnessing methane extracted from animal waste.

The Debtor filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection (Bankr. N.D.
Ill. Case No. 16-09913) on March 23, 2016.  The petition was signed
by James G. Philip, manager and designated representative.  The
Debtor is represented by David K. Welch, Esq., at Crane, Heyrnan,
Simon, Welch & Clar.  The case is assigned to Judge Donald R.
Cassling.  The Debtor estimated both assets and liabilities in the
range of $1 million to $10 million at the time of the filing.


XEROX BUSINESS: Moody's Assigns Ba3 CFR; Outlook Stable
-------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a Ba3 Corporate Family Rating
and Ba3-PD Probability of Default Rating to Xerox Business Services
LLC, an operating subsidiary of parent company, Conduent Inc.
Concurrently, Moody's assigned a Ba2 rating to the company's
proposed senior secured bank credit facility, comprised of a
$1.45 billion term loan and a $750 million revolver, and assigned a
Speculative Grade Liquidity rating of SGL-2.  As part of Conduent's
pending separation from its corporate parent Xerox Corporation
though a spin-off transaction, the proceeds of the new debt
financing will be used principally to fund the payment of a
dividend to Xerox, an asset purchase from Xerox, and the addition
of cash to Conduent's balance sheet.  Moody's expects Conduent to
issue an additional $750 million of unsecured debt to complete the
funding of the transaction in the near term.  The ratings outlook
is stable.

Moody's assigned these ratings:

Issuer: Xerox Business Services LLC:

  Corporate Family Rating- Ba3
  Probability of Default Rating- Ba3-PD
   $400 mil. Senior Secured Delayed Draw Term Loan A due 2021 –
   Ba2 (LGD-2)
  $750 mil. Senior Secured Term Loan B due 2023 -- Ba2 (LGD-2)
  $750 mil. Senior Secured Revolving Credit Facility expiring 2021

   -- Ba2 (LGD-2)
  Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating -- SGL-2
Outlook is Stable

Issuer: Affiliated Computer Services International B.V.

  $300 mil. (EUR-denominated) Senior Secured Term Loan A due
   2021 --Ba2 (LGD-2)

Outlook is Stable

                        RATINGS RATIONALE

The Ba3 CFR reflects Conduent's levered capital structure,
competitive pressures from larger and financially stronger rivals
as well as competitors based in lower cost regions, the company's
susceptibility to weakening pricing trends which weigh heavily on
sales growth prospects, and weak near term free cash flow metrics.
Pro forma for its pending recapitalization and spin-off from Xerox,
Conduent's adjusted debt balance will approximate
$3.4 billion (including adjustments for operating leases),
resulting in LTM debt leverage of approximately 3.3x (Moody's
adjusted) as of June 30, 2016.  Moody's forecasts debt leverage to
improve to 3.1x by the end of 2017 as the company implements
strategic cost reduction initiatives to bolster profitability
margins and increase free cash flow from fairly nominal levels in
2016, but uncertainty with respect to the timing and effectiveness
of these cost reductions add incremental risk to the company's
credit profile.  However, these uncertainties are partially offset
by Conduent's scale and strong market position as a provider of
business process services to clients operating in the healthcare
industry and other private sector markets as well as domestic and
foreign governments.  Additionally, the highly recurring nature of
the company's revenues as well as Conduent's diversified and
longstanding customer relationships and high client retention rates
provide strong top-line visibility that support its fundamental
credit profile.

Conduent's SGL-2 speculative grade liquidity rating is supported by
a cash balance of approximately $400 million expected upon closing
of the spin-off in late 2016 as well as Moody's expectation that
the company will generate minimal free cash flow in 2016 and about
$200 million in 2017.  Liquidity is expected to improve moderately
over the intermediate term as cost savings initiatives drive
improved free cash flow generation. Additionally, the company's
liquidity is bolstered by an undrawn $750 million revolving credit
facility due in 2021.  The revolver and tranche A of the company's
term loan are subject to a financial maintenance covenant requiring
that Conduent's maximum net leverage ratio does not exceed 4.25x
with a step-down to 3.75x on Dec. 31, 2018.  Moody's expects the
company to remain well in compliance with this covenant over the
next 12-18 months.

The stable ratings outlook reflects Moody's projection for a low
single digit contraction in revenues in 2017 and modest revenue
growth in 2018.  In 2017, Moody's expects weakening pricing trends
will continue to constrain sales growth prospects, while greater
management focus on improving the economics related to unfavorable
contracts should facilitate modest growth in 2018.  Cost reduction
efforts stemming from the company's sizable operational
restructuring program should bolster profitability margins and
drive mid-single digit improvement in EBITDA during 2017.

What Could Change the Rating - Up

  1) Conduent demonstrates organic sales growth while concurrently

     realizing meaningful improvements in profitability and free
     cash flow generation and 2) Conduent maintains conservative
     financial policies.

What Could Change the Rating - Down

  1) Conduent's sales continue to decline and efforts to drive
     profitability and free cash flow expansion stall or 2)
     Conduent adopts more aggressive financial policies.

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

Conduent is provider of business process services to clients
operating in the healthcare industry and other private sector
markets as well as domestic and foreign governments.  The company
is in the process of a separation from its corporate parent Xerox
though a spin-off transaction, expected to be completed by the end
of 2016.

                            *********

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.
