213 THAMES: Allowed to Use Cash Collateral Through January 31
-------------------------------------------------------------
Judge James J. Tancredi of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Connecticut authorized 213 Thames, Inc. to use cash
collateral through January 31, 2017.

The Debtor was authorized to use cash generated from its rental
payments from its properties, in an amount not exceeding $9,400.
The approved Budget for January 2017 provides for total monthly
expenses of $8,437.

Dime Savings Bank and RCN Capital have claimed a duly perfected
non-avoidable security interest in the Debtor's properties in
Groton and Gales Ferry, Connecticut, including cash collateral
associated with the real properties.

Dime Savings Bank and RCN Capital were each granted replacement
liens in all after-acquired property of the Debtor, of equal extent
and priority to that which each secured creditor held at the time
the Debtor filed its Chapter 11 petition.

The Debtor was directed to make monthly adequate protection
payments to Dime Savings Bank in the amount of $500, and to RCN
Capital in the amount of $300.

The Debtor was also directed to provide Dime Savings Bank and RCN
Capital a monthly register report from all DIP account showing all
disbursements made, and to make all January 2017 tax payments on or
before January 31, 2017 from the funds previously escrowed in
previous cash collateral orders.

A hearing on the continued use of cash collateral will be held on
January 26, 2017 at 2:00 p.m.

A full-text copy of the Order, dated December 27, 2016, is
available at https://is.gd/pIABT8


                About 213 Thames, Inc.

213 Thames, Inc., filed a chapter 11 petition (Bankr. D. Conn. Case
No. 15-21002) on June 5, 2015.  The petition was signed by John
Syragakis, president.  The Debtor is represented by Peter L.
Ressler, Esq., at Groob Ressler & Mulqueen.  The Debtor estimated
assets at $100,001 to $500,000 and liabilities at $50,001 to
$100,000 at the time of the filing.


2424 ESSE: Wants to Use Shore Bank Cash Collateral
--------------------------------------------------
2424 ESSE, LLC requests authorization from the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the District of New Jersey to use the cash collateral of
Shore Community Bank on an interim basis, until the Court can make
a final determination at a subsequent hearing.

The Debtor asks the Court to authorize cash collateral use in
accordance with its proposed interim budget, which projects total
cash needs in the aggregate amount of $129,724 for the period from
January 2017 through June 2017.

The Debtor tells the Court that it needs to use cash collateral to
preserve the Debtor's business, tenant relationships, and assets
for the benefit of its estate and creditors, as well as to allow
the Debtor to negotiate and propose a Chapter 11 plan of
reorganization.

The Debtor also asks the Court to fix an administrative carve-out
from Shore Bank's lien in the Property and other collateral
securing Shore Bank's lien in the total amount of $160,000.

The Debtor owns the real property located at 2424 East State Street
Extension, Hamilton Township, NJ 08619.  The Property was, at the
time the Debtor's case was filed, which was listed for $4,350,000.


The Debtor contends that prior to the Filing Date, the Property was
actively listed for sale and the Debtor wishes to continue to
market and sell the Property.  However, the Debtor cannot do so
without establishing a reasonable budget that permits payment of
the Property's monthly ongoing operating costs while the marketing
efforts continue, otherwise, the Debtor will be in breach of the
property maintenance lease obligations it has to its existing
tenants.

The Debtor anticipates that sale of the Property will generate
sufficient net sale proceeds to allow Debtor to also propose a plan
of repayment to its unsecured creditors, including full
satisfaction of its obligations to Shore Bank from the sale
proceeds.

The Debtor's business consists of leasing office, warehouse and
commercial space in the Property to others.   The total amount of
monthly income that is due as rent from the three current tenants
is $32,573.  The Debtor contends that AMTRAK has been withholding
payment of the monthly $5,507 common area maintenance charges,
leaving the Debtor with only $27,066 in monthly rent.

The Debtor had previously executed and delivered to Shore Bank a
promissory note in the amount of $2,900,000, secured by a Mortgage
lien on the Debtor's Property, as well as a lien in all of the
Debtor's accounts, inventory, equipment, fixtures, chattel paper,
negotiable instruments, computer equipment and the proceeds of such
assets.  In addition, the Debtor believes that Shore Bank also
holds an assignment of rents and leases, either as part of the
Mortgage or as a separately filed and recorded document.

The Debtor submits that the monthly mortgage payment due to Shore
Bank is $25,018, and, as of the Petition Date, the balance due on
the Note and Mortgage was $2,677,494.

The Debtor tells the Court that Shore Bank is adequately protected
because the value of its Property vastly exceeds the amount of
Shore Bank's secured claim, such that there is a sufficient equity
cushion in the property alone to fully secure Shore Bank's secured
claim.  

The Debtor intends to provide Shore Bank with replacement
post-petition liens on the same assets and in the same priority as
Shore Bank holds on pre-petition assets as adequate protection, in
exchange for the Debtor's use of cash collateral.

ALPHA NATURAL: Mar-Bow's Objection to Fee Application Dismissed
---------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Kevin R. Huennekens of the United States Bankruptcy Court for
the Eastern District of Virginia granted McKinsey Recovery &
Transformation Services, U.S., LLC's motion to dismiss Mar-Bow
Value Partners LLC's objection to McKinsey's final fee application
in the case captioned IN RE: ALPHA NATURAL RESOURCES, INC., et al.,
Case no. 15-33896-KRH (Bankr. E.D. Va.).

McKinsey has filed a final application for compensation for
services rendered, reimbursement of expenses incurred, and payment
of holdbacks.  Mar-Bow objected, asking the Court to reconsider its
previous findings that McKinsey is a "disinterested person" and
that McKinsey has complied with disclosure requirements under
Bankruptcy Rule 2014.

McKinsey RTS filed a motion to dismiss Mar-Bow's objection pursuant
to Bankruptcy Rule 7012(b)(6) for failure to state a claim upon
which relief can be granted.

Judge Huennekens granted McKinsey's Motion to Dismiss.  The judge
found that Mar-Bow lacks standing to file its Objection on the
matter because Mar-Bow will not suffer any "injury in fact"
resulting from the Court's ruling on the Final Fee Application of
McKinsey RTS.  But even if Mar-Bow did have standing, Judge
Huennekens found that the Court would lack subject matter
jurisdiction to decide the issues raised in the Objection
concerning whether McKinsey RTS complied with Bankruptcy Rule 2014
and whether McKinsey RTS is a "disinterested person" because
Mar-Bow has appealed these issues to the District Court.

opinion is available at

AMERICAN POWER: Needs More Time to File Fiscal 2016 Form 10-K
-------------------------------------------------------------
American Power Group Corp filed a Form 12b-25 with the Securities
and Exchange Commission notifying the delay in the filing of its
annual report on Form 10-K for the period ended Sept. 30, 2016.
According to the Company, additional time is required in order to
prepare and file its Form 10-K.  The Company further represents
that the Form 10-K will be filed by no later than the 15th calendar
day following the date on which the Form 10-K was due.

The Company anticipates reporting revenues from continuing
operations of approximately $1.9 million for the fiscal year ended
Sept. 30, 2016, as compared to approximately $3 million for the
fiscal year ended Sept. 30, 2015.  Because the Company's dual fuel
technology displaces higher cost diesel fuel with lower cost and
cleaner burning natural gas, the recent decrease in oil/diesel
pricing has impacted the timing of dealer restocking orders and the
implementation schedules of existing and prospective customers in
the near term due to the current tighter price spread between
diesel and natural gas.

The Company anticipates reporting an operating loss from continuing
operations of approximately $5.3 million fiscal year ended Sept.
30, 2016, as compared to an operating loss from continuing
operations of approximately $4.3 million for the fiscal year ended
Sept. 30, 2015.

During the fiscal year ended Sept. 30, 2016, the Company
anticipates reporting interest and financing expenses of
approximately $2,811,000 as compared to approximately $836,000 for
the fiscal year ended Sept. 30, 2015.  The increase was due to
increased borrowings and interest rates and additional non-cash
financing expense of $1,560,000 resulting from the recognition of
the discount upon conversion of the contingent convertible
promissory notes and a $447,000 loss on the extinguishment of bank
debt.

During the fiscal year ended Sept. 30, 2015, the Company
retroactively implemented, as of Oct. 1, 2013, the correction of an
accounting error relating to the valuation of certain warrants
containing anti-dilution adjustment provisions issued in
conjunction with private placements of 10% Convertible Preferred
Stock in 2012 and 2014.  As a result of this correction, the
Company anticipates reporting non-cash warrant valuation income of
approximately $0.2 million for the fiscal year ended Sept. 30,
2016, as compared to non-cash warrant valuation income of
approximately $5.8 million for the fiscal year ended Sept. 30,
2015.

As a result of the forgoing information, the Company anticipates
reporting a net loss of approximately $7.6 million as compared to
net income of approximately $0.5 million for the fiscal year ended
Sept. 30, 2015.

In addition, as a result of the operating losses incurred to date,
the Company anticipates reporting a net working capital deficit of
approximately $.50 million at Sept. 30, 2016, as compared to a
working capital deficit of approximately $3.0 million at Sept. 30,
2015.

"As of June 30, 2016, we had $434,894 in cash, cash equivalents and
restricted certificates of deposit and a working capital deficit of
$2,617,097.  The accompanying financial statements have been
prepared on a basis that assumes we will continue as a going
concern and that contemplates the continuity of operations,
realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities and
commitments in the normal course of business.  We continue to incur
recurring losses from operations, which raises substantial doubt
about our ability to continue as a going concern unless we secure
additional capital to fund our operations as well as implement
initiatives to reduce our cash burn in light of lower
diesel/natural gas price spreads and the impact it has had on our
business as well as the slower than anticipated ramp of our flare
capture and recovery business.  The accompanying financial
statements do not include any adjustments that might result from
the outcome of the uncertainty," as disclosed in the quarterly
report for the period ended June 30, 2016.

AWR WHOLESALE: Wants to Continue Using Cash Through June 30
-----------------------------------------------------------
AWR Wholesale Inc. seeks authorization from the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the Southern District of New York to continue using cash
collateral.

As of the Petition Date, the Debtor operated from a retail store
located at 436 Lafayette Street, New York, New York.  The Debtor
vacated the NY Premises and is currently operating from premises at
1012 Grand Street, Hoboken, New Jersey.

The Debtor's proposed six-month Budget covers the period from
December 17, 2017 through June 30, 2017, and reflects the Debtor's
projected total operating disbursements in the aggregate amount of
$247,488 and total restructuring expenses in the approximate total
amount of $50,850.

The Debtor seeks authorization to use cash collateral to fund
operating expenses necessary to continue the operation of its
business, to maintain the estate, to maximize the return of its
assets, and to avoid irreparable harm and injury to its business
and its estate.  

The Debtor also intends to use cash collateral for payment of the
secured post-petition rent claim of the Landlord for the NY
Premises in the sum of $24,058 from the proceeds of an auction.
The Debtor is holding $28,839 proceeds from the auction sale.

The Debtor owned assets totaling $1,278,149 while the Debtor's
secured tax liabilities totaled $102,828 with general unsecured
liabilities in the sum of $484,284, as of the Petition Date.

The Debtor believes that by using cash collateral, it can continue
to operate its business during its Chapter 11 case, which will be
beneficial to its creditors.  

The Debtor proposes to grant to taxing authorities a replacement
lien on assets acquired after the Petition Date, to the same
extent, validity, and priority as existed on the Petition Date.

The Debtor asserts that there is substantial equity in its
inventory such that allowing the Debtor to use cash collateral in
accordance with the proposed Budget will not impair the taxing
authorities claim or claim.

Exchange Commission its annual report on Form 10-K, disclosing a
net loss of $3.23 million on $20.44 million of total revenues for
the fiscal year ended September 30, 2016, compared to a net income
of $1.10 million on $22.70 million of total revenues for the fiscal

RSM US LLP states that the Company is operating under forbearance
arrangements with respect to its credit agreements, and has not
been able to secure adequate alternative financing.  In addition,
the Company has current liabilities in excess of its current

BORINQUEN PARKING: Must Pay Over $17K to AEELA, Court Says
----------------------------------------------------------
Judge Brian K. Tester of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Puerto Rico granted the motion filed by the creditor,
Asociacion de Empleados del Estado Libre Asociado de Puerto Rico
(AEELA), for an order requiring Borinquen Parking Services Inc. to
pay post petition rent and granting an administrative expense claim
pursuant to 11 U.S.C. section 503(a) in the total amount of
$17,022.38.

On April 1st, 2012, Borinquen Parking Services Inc. and AEELA
executed two lease agreements over two nonresidential properties to
be used as parking facilities.  Pursuant to these agreements,
Borinquen's total combined rent obligation to AEELA for each month
was $18,986.50.  This amount included, the base rent for Lease #1
in the amount of $11,686.50, and for Lease #2 in the amount of
$7,300.00, in addition to a delinquency penalty of one percent 1%
in the event of arrears.

On April 1, 2015, the agreements expired and Borinquen continued to
lease the premises on a month to month basis.  Borinquen filed for
Chapter 11 relief on February 4, 2016.  Borinquen maintained
possession and occupancy of the leased premises until February 29,
2016.

Through their motion, AEELA requested payment from Borinquen in the
amount of $18,986.50 for post-petition rent pursuant to the expired
lease agreements as an administrative expense pursuant to 11 U.S.C.
section 503(a).  In response to AEELA's request, Borinquen argued
that the rents were due on the first day of each month, and since
Borinquen's voluntary petition was filed on the 4th day of
February, said rents fall within the pre-petition timeframe, and
are thus excluded as an administrative expense pursuant to Section
503(a).

Judge Tester held that the rent accrued by Borinquen from February
1 to February 3, 2016 is considered pre-petition.  However, the
judge also held that the rent accrued from the petition filing date
of February 4, 2016, to the date Borinquen vacated the premises on
February 29, 2016, results in 26 days of post-petition rent
obligations for the month of February 2016 being due and owing as
administrative expenses.  Calculating 26 days of rent obligations
on a per diem basis from a total monthly amount due of $18,986.50,
gives a prorated amount due of $17,022.38.  Therefore, the judge
concluded that the total administrative expense being requested by
AEELA should be reduced by $1,964.12 which represents the three
days of February that are part of Borinquen's accrued pre-petition
rent.

order is available at

CALMARE THERAPEUTICS: Incurs $648,000 Net Loss in Third Quarter
---------------------------------------------------------------
Calmare Therapeutics Incorporated filed with the Securities and
Exchange Commission its quarterly report on Form 10-Q disclosing a
net loss of $648,393 on $465,000 of product sales revenue for the
three months ended Sept. 30, 2016, compared to a net loss of $1.06
million on $197,204 of product sales revenue for the three months
ended Sept. 30, 2015.

For the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2016, the Company reported a
net loss of $2.63 million on $716,250 of product sales revenue
compared to a net loss of $2.84 million on $405,154 of product
sales revenue for the same period during the prior year.

As of Sept. 30, 2016, Calmare had $3.98 million in total assets,
$16.64 million in total liabilities, all current, and a total
stockholders' deficit of $12.65 million.

                 Financial Condition and Liquidity

"Our liquidity requirements arise principally from our working
capital needs, including funds needed to sell our current
technologies and obtain new technologies or products, and protect
and enforce our intellectual property rights, if necessary.  We
fund our liquidity requirements with a combination of cash on hand,
debt and equity financing, sales of common stock and cash flows
from operations, if any.  At September 30, 2016, the Company had
outstanding debt in the form of promissory notes with a total
principal amount of $6,059,000 and a carrying value of $5,908,000.

"Our future cash requirements depend on many factors, including
results of our operations and marketing efforts, results and costs
of our legal proceedings, and our equity financing.  To achieve and
sustain profitability, we are implementing a corporate
reengineering effort, which commenced on September 26, 2013 under
the direction of the Company's president & CEO, Mr. Conrad Mir.
This plan design will change the inherent design of the current
distributor network and focus on opportunities within the US
Departments of Defense (the "DOD") and Veterans Affairs ("VA"), and
set out to upgrade the Company’s current U.S. Food and Drug
Administration ("FDA") clearance designation for the Calmare Device
to approval.  Although we cannot be certain that we will be
successful in these efforts, we believe the combination of our cash
on hand and revenue from executing our strategic plan will be
sufficient to meet our obligations of current and anticipated
operating cash requirements.

"At September 30, 2016, cash was $7,000, as compared with $50,000
at December 31, 2015.  Net cash used in operating activities was
($1,243,000) for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 as
compared to ($1,136,000) for the nine months ended September 30,
2015, primarily reflecting an increase in debt discount
amortization and use of inventory offset by a decrease in net loss,
non-cash equity expenses, prepaid expenses and accounts payable.

"There was no investing activity year to date in 2016 and minimal
activity in 2015.

"Net cash provided by financing activities was $1,200,000 for the
nine months ended September 30, 2016 as compared to $1,180,000 for
the nine months ended September 30, 2015, primarily as a result of
the Company's debt and equity financing activities in both
periods.

"We currently have the benefit of using a portion of our
accumulated net operating losses ("NOLs") to eliminate any future
regular federal and state income tax liabilities.  We will continue
to receive this benefit until we have utilized all of our NOLs,
federal and state.  However, we cannot determine when and if we
will be profitable enough to utilize the benefit of the remaining
NOLs before they expire."

                         Going Concern

The Company has incurred operating losses since fiscal 2006 and has
a working capital deficiency at September 30, 2016.  During the
three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015, the
Company had a significant concentration of revenues from sales of
our Calmare Devices.  The Company said it continues to seek revenue
from new and existing technologies or products to mitigate the
concentration of revenues, and replace revenues from expiring
licenses on other technologies.

"Although we have taken steps to significantly reduce operating
expenses going forward, even at these reduced spending levels,
should the anticipated increase in revenue from sales of Calmare
Devices and other technologies not occur, the Company may not have
sufficient cash flow to fund operations through 2016 and into 2017.
These conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company's
ability to continue as a going concern.

"The Company's continuation as a going concern is dependent upon
its developing recurring revenue streams sufficient to cover
operating costs.  The Company does not have any significant
individual cash or capital requirements in the budget going
forward.  If necessary, the Company will meet anticipated operating
cash requirements by further reducing costs, issuing debt and /or
equity, and / or pursuing sales of certain assets and technologies
while we pursue licensing and distribution opportunities for our
remaining portfolio of technologies.  There can be no assurance
that the Company will be successful in such efforts.  To return to
and sustain profitability, we must increase our revenue through
sales of our Calmare Devices and other products and services
related to the Devices.  Our recent contract with the U.S.
Government over five years will significantly improve our revenue
streams. Failure to develop a recurring revenue stream sufficient
to cover operating expenses would negatively affect the Company's
financial position," the Company stated in the quarterly report.

CHIEFTAIN STEEL: Can Use United Cumberland Cash Until Feb. 1
------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Joan A. Lloyd of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Western
District of Kentucky authorized debtor Chieftain Steel, LLC to use
the cash collateral.  

United Cumberland Bank consented to the Debtor's use of cash
collateral through February 1, 2017.

The Debtor was authorized to use cash collateral solely to pay
normal trade payables, payroll, insurance premiums, taxes and
utilities that are necessary to preserve and maintain the assets
and business operations of the Debtor during the period of December
31, 2016 through February 1, 2017.

The Debtor borrowed money and received other financial
accommodations from United Cumberland, and granted United
Cumberland security interests and liens on, among other things, all
of the Debtor's accounts receivable, inventory, equipment, chattel
paper, general intangibles and real estate.  

As of the Petition Date, the Debtor's outstanding indebtedness to
United Cumberland Bank is:

          Loan #75110          $2,390,281
          Loan #75441          $  753,551
          Loan #755803         $  548,346

Cumberland under Loan # 75110 and Loan # 75441, in the total amount
of $9,250 per month.  The Debtor was further directed to make
interest and principal payments to United Cumberland under loan
#755803 in the total amount of $3,500 per month.

United Cumberland was granted first priority postpetition
replacement security interests and liens upon all of the
post-petition property of the Debtor that is similar to the
property on which it held its pre-petition liens.

United Cumberland was also granted an administrative expense claim,
which will have priority over any and all administrative expenses
of the kind specified in section 507(a)(1) of the Bankruptcy Code,
in the event that the adequate protection granted to United
Cumberland fails to adequately protect its interests in the cash
collateral.

United Cumberland's post-petition liens on the postpetition
collateral of the Debtor will at all times be senior to the rights
of all other persons, including, without limitation, the Debtor and
any successor trustee in the case or any subsequent case under the
Bankruptcy Code, but subject only to the Carve-Out, which consists
of any, fees, costs, disbursements, charges and expenses of
attorneys, accountants and other professionals of: (a) the Debtor,
in the aggregate amount of $20,000 per month, and (b) the Committee
which will not exceed $20,000 per month.

The Debtor was required to maintain a collateral base consisting of
the cash collateral in an amount not less than $750,000, and
adequate insurance on its assets including, general liability
coverage naming United Cumberland as a Lender's loss payee.

CORWIN PLACE: Bid to Disqualify Premier Bank's Counsel Denied
-------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Patrick M. Flatley of the United States Bankruptcy Court for
the Northern District of West Virginia denied Corwin Place, LLC's
motion to disqualify Premier Bank's counsel, Bailey & Glasser.

On November 17, 2016, Corwin Place LLC filed a motion to disqualify
the law firm representing Premier Bank, its principal creditor.
Corwin Place asserted that the court should disqualify Premier's
counsel, Bailey & Glasser, based upon a conflict of interest
stemming from the Corwin Place's principal, Charles Corwin,
previously consulting with Bailey & Glasser regarding potential
lender liability claims that he wished to bring on behalf of Corwin
Place against Premier.  In response, Premier alleged that the scope
of the consultation was limited such that Corwin was merely a
prospective client of Bailey & Glasser's.  Thus, Premier asserted
that West Virginia Rule of Professional Conduct 1.18 controls and
was not violated because no significantly harmful information was
shared between Charles Corwin and Bailey & Glasser.

Judge Flatley found that Corwin Place has not satisfied its burden
to demonstrate that Corwin shared significantly harmful information
during his consultation with Bailey & Glasser.  Moreover, the judge
found that Premier has rebutted any presumption that such harmful
information was shared by producing documentation of virtually
every communication between Corwin and Bailey & Glasser.

CYTORI THERAPEUTICS: Inks $20M Purchase Pact with Lincoln Park
--------------------------------------------------------------
Cytori Therapeutics, Inc., entered into a purchase agreement and a
registration rights agreement with Lincoln Park Capital Fund, LLC,
an Illinois limited liability company, on Dec. 22, 2016.

Under the terms and subject to the conditions of the Purchase
Agreement, the Company has the right to sell to Lincoln Park and
Lincoln Park is obligated to purchase up to $20 million in amounts
of shares of the Company's common stock, subject to certain
limitations, from time to time, over the 30-month period commencing
on the date that a registration statement, which the Company agreed
to file with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to the
Registration Rights Agreement, is declared effective by the SEC and
a final prospectus in connection therewith is filed.  The Company
may direct Lincoln Park, at its sole discretion and subject to
certain conditions, to purchase up to 100,000 shares of Common
Stock on any business day, provided that at least one business day
has passed since the most recent purchase, and provided that the
amount the Company may sell to Lincoln Park under a single Regular
Purchase may increase under certain circumstances as described in
the Purchase Agreement but in no event will the amount of a single
Regular Purchase exceed
$1 million.  The purchase price of shares of Common Stock related
to the Regular Purchases will be based on the prevailing market
prices of such shares at the time of sales.  The Company may also
direct Lincoln Park to purchase other amounts as accelerated
purchases or additional purchases if the closing sale price of the
Common Stock is not below the threshold prices as set forth in the
Purchase Agreement.  The Company's sales of shares of Common Stock
to Lincoln Park under the Purchase Agreement are limited to no more
than the number of shares that would result in the beneficial
ownership by Lincoln Park and its affiliates, at any single point
in time, of more than 9.99% of the then outstanding shares of the
Common Stock.  There are no trading volume requirements or
restrictions under the Purchase Agreement.  There is no upper limit
on the price per share that Lincoln Park must pay for Common Stock
under a Regular Purchase or an accelerated purchase and in no event
will shares be sold to Lincoln Park on a day the Company's closing
price is less than the floor price as set forth in the Purchase
Agreement.  

On Dec. 22, 2016, the Company issued to Lincoln Park 127,419 shares
of Common Stock as commitment shares in consideration for entering
into the Purchase Agreement.  The Company will issue up to an
additional 382,258 shares of Common Stock on a pro rata basis to
Lincoln Park only as and when shares are sold under the Purchase
Agreement to Lincoln Park.  Lincoln Park represented to the
Company, among other things, that it was an "accredited investor",
and the Company sold the securities in reliance upon an exemption
from registration contained in Section 4(a)(2) under the Securities
Act.  The securities sold may not be offered or sold in the United
States absent registration or an applicable exemption from
registration requirements.

The Purchase Agreement and the Registration Rights Agreement
contain customary representations, warranties, agreements and
conditions to completing future sale transactions, indemnification
rights and obligations of the parties.  The Company has the right
to terminate the Purchase Agreement at any time, at no cost or
penalty.  Lincoln Park does not have the right to terminate the
Purchase Agreement upon any of the events of default as set forth
in the Purchase Agreement; however, during an event of default,
shares of Common Stock cannot be sold by the Company or purchased
by Lincoln Park under the terms of the Purchase Agreement.  In
addition, in the event of bankruptcy proceedings by or against the
Company, the Purchase Agreement will automatically terminate.
Actual sales of shares of Common Stock to Lincoln Park under the
Purchase Agreement will depend on a variety of factors to be
determined by the Company from time to time, including, among
others, market conditions, the trading price of the Common Stock
and determinations by the Company as to the appropriate sources of
funding for the Company and its operations.  Lincoln Park has no
right to require any sales by the Company, but is obligated to make
purchases from the Company as it directs in accordance with the
Purchase Agreement.  Lincoln Park has covenanted not to cause or
engage in any manner whatsoever, any direct or indirect short
selling or hedging of the Company's shares.

The net proceeds under the Purchase Agreement to the Company will
depend on the frequency and prices at which the Company sells
shares of its stock to Lincoln Park.  The Company expects that any
proceeds received by the Company from such sales to Lincoln Park
under the Purchase Agreement will be used for working capital and
general corporate purposes.

Lawrenceburg's motion for stay relief is resolved on or after the
hearing date of December 21, 2016.

ETIENNE ESTATES: Court Partly Corrects Decision on JJAM Claim
-------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Nancy Hershey Lord of the United States Bankruptcy Court for
the Eastern District of New York granted in part and denied, in
part, Etienne Estates at Washington LLC's motion to correct,
pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 60(a), certain
mathematical errors in the Decision on Objection to Claim and Plan
Confirmation.

The Decision fixed the claim of secured creditor JJAM Capital LLC
in the amount of $2,726,396.97, and permitted Etienne to tender
$779,764.83 of that amount to cure its default on, and reinstate
the terms of, the consolidated note.  The Court found that JJAM's
total claim was comprised of the following amounts:

     a) principal balance of $1,786,762.62;

     b) arrears under the consolidated note of $106,726.55;

     c) interest accrued on the Forbearance Agreement of
        $442,557.39;

     d) $145,180.55 due for property tax advances;

     e) $5,095.79 due for water advances;

     f) $9,629.18 due for insurance payment advances;

     g) $214,089.74 due in attorney's fees;

     h) $16,391.15 due for late fees through and after the
        default on the Forbearance Agreement; and finally

     i) interest on the above advances, which were to be added to
        the principal balance noted above, and would accrue
        interest as a part of that amount.

From those amounts, the Court determined that Etienne could
reinstate the terms of the consolidated note by paying the
consolidated note arrears (item (b)), interest accrued on the
Forbearance Agreement (item (c)), attorney's fees (item (g)), and
the late fees (item (h)).

Etienne, invoking Rule 60(a), sought to have five corrections made,
all of which it contends are based on errors "relat[ed] to
mathematical calculations, rather than . . . any of the Court's
rulings of law."

The first is that the Court overstated the amount of arrears due
under the consolidated note.  Etienne claimed that the Court's
figure of $106,726.55 is too high because interest was originally
overcharged under the consolidated note, and that the Court
overlooked these excess charges when calculating the total arrears.
Etienne argued that these oversights occurred in two related
instances:

     a) First, Etienne pointed out that, according to the
        Decision, it is entitled to a credit of $2,106.08 for      
  
        incorrectly charged interest, but the Decision's
        $106,726.55 arrears figure does not take that credit into
        account.  Judge Lord found that Etienne is correct on
        this issue.

     b) Second, Etienne also contended that the arrears should be
        further reduced because "the monthly overcharges were not
        correctly calculated by JJAM in the first place since
        JJAM proposed their credit based on a flat rate of 5%
        interest, although the Debtor was paying interest [] as
        high as 10%."  Judge Lord held that the change that
        Etienne requested here is beyond the scope of a Rule
        60(a) motion because it asks for an amendment based on
        almost two years of overcharges.

Etienne's second allegation of error is related to the first --
namely, that because interest was overcharged during the period
from November 2006 to May 2008, the 2% late fees were assessed on
inflated monthly payments, and therefore must be reduced.  Judge
Lord held that, despite JJAM's apparent acceptance of this change
in some form, this sort of alteration is also outside of 60(a)'s
scope.

Etienne's third claim relates to the calculation of interest under
the Forbearance Agreement.  Etienne explained that the Court
reduced the principal balance due under the Forbearance Agreement
by $935.88, which represented a payment made by Etienne against
that balance in June of 2009, but which was never credited.
Etienne pointed out that, after finding that this deduction was
appropriate, the Court nevertheless did not use the reduced
principal amount in calculating interest payments due.  

Judge Lord denied this request because the method of calculation
that Etienne describes here is not a correction in accord with the
Court's approach, but a different method altogether.  For the same
reason, Judge Lord also denied JJAM's request in its response
papers that interest on advances be added to the Forbearance
Agreement interest total.

Etienne's next claim of error is that the 2% fees owed for late or
missed payments under the Forbearance Agreement should have been
reduced.  Judge Lord made the following alteration with respect to
late fees set out in the Decision: fees from the first late payment
under the Forbearance Agreement in July of 2008 to the last in May
of 2009 should be assessed under the Forbearance Agreement's
monthly payment of $9,874.19, while the late fees from default to
the Cutoff Date should be assessed on the consolidated note's
$7,448.59 figure

Etienne's final claim of error was that the Court failed to include
in its calculation of interest on the Forbearance Agreement a final
adequate protection payment made on the cutoff date.

Though the Court does not deny that this additional payment was
made on May 18, 2015, Judge Lord found that the record at the time
indicated that the parties had agreed to a credit of $60,000.
Moreover, the judge found that JJAM has indicated that it intends
to continue crediting all adequate protection payments against the
Etienne's total indebtedness, making the inclusion of the
additional $5,000 unnecessary.

In summary, Etienne's motion to correct the Decision of the Court
was granted to the extent that the arrears figure under the
consolidated note should be corrected to $104,620.47; and that late
fees under the Forbearance Agreement should be corrected such that
fees charged from the first late payment under the Forbearance in
July of 2008 to the last in May of 2009 should be assessed under
the Forbearance Agreement's monthly payment of $9,874.19, while the
late fees from default to the cutoff date should be assessed on the
consolidated note's $7,448.59 figure.  The remainder of the
Etienne's motion was denied, as was JJAM's request for retroactive
interest on its advances.

FIRST ONE HUNDRED: ASBPA Has Own Plan, Wants Exclusivity Cancelled
------------------------------------------------------------------
Aaronson Schantz Beiley P.A., holder of a first mortgage on all of
First One Hundred, LLC's properties, requests the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the Southern District of Florida to confirm that the
Debtor's exclusivity period has expired.  

In the alternative, if the Court determines that the exclusivity
period has not expired, ASBPA requests the Court to terminate or
reduce the Debtor's exclusivity period such that ASBPA can proceed
with its own plan filed on December 28, 2016.

ASBPA relates that the Court had previously extended the Debtor's
exclusivity period and deadline to file a plan to August 1, 2016,
which was also the day the Debtor's Plan was actually filed.  The
exclusive solicitation period was also extended through September
30, 2016.  However, the Debtor's Plan remains pending.

The Debtor's Plan provides for a sale of the Properties to fund
distributions to creditors.  Notwithstanding the Debtor's Plan of
record, the Debtor filed a Motion to Approve Proposed Settlement
with the City of Orlando, Florida, on November 15, 2016 -- 46 days
after the expiration of the extended solicitation period.  

Under the terms of the proposed Settlement Agreement, the Debtor
transfers the Properties directly to the City of Orlando via a
Warranty Deed in lieu of foreclosure, with certain carve-outs for
designated creditors.

ASBPA complains that the Debtor's Plan and the Proposed Settlement
with the City are irreconcilable since the Debtor cannot
simultaneously seek confirmation of its Plan, which calls for the
private sale of the Debtor's Properties to fund a distribution to
creditors, and also transfer its Properties directly to the City in
lieu of foreclosure.

In this regard, ASBPA requests the Court to deem the Debtor's Plan
as withdrawn based upon the irreconcilable differences between the
Debtor's Plan and the Proposed Settlement of record.

objection deadline and the sale hearing date or, in the
alternative, appoint a Chapter 11 Examiner to investigate,

dark and will prejudice their ability to actively participate in
the proceedings. Thus, the Creditors have requested the Court to
direct the Foreign Representative to file a report disclosing,
inter alia, certain information regarding the Debtor's U.S. Assets
on or before December 23, 2016, the Disclosure Order. Additionally,
the Creditors ask the Court to adjourn the Objection Deadline and

examiner pursuant to Bankruptcy Code sections 1521(a)(5), 1522(c),

                      About HCSB Financial

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

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

As of Sept. 30, 2016, the Company had $381.1 million in total
assets, $344.5 million in total liabilities and $36.59 million in
total shareholders' equity.

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

HYPNOTIC TAXI: Mogul Ordered To Surrender 46 Cabs
-------------------------------------------------
The American Bankruptcy Institute, citing Ian Wenik of Reuters,
reported that New York taxi king Evgeny "Gene" Freidman would earn
a ride to jail if he failed to comply with an order compelling him
to surrender 46 of his taxicabs and medallions.

According to the report, Judge Carla E. Craig of the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court in Brooklyn, N.Y., has ruled that Mr. Freidman
must turn the assets over to a Chapter 7 trustee or face arrest.

The court-appointed trustee that now administers the holding
companies' bankruptcy estates, Gregory Messer, asked to seize the
vehicles and medallions after Freidman failed to make a $92,000
monthly payment on the medallions, the report related.

Freidman wanted to turn the cabs and medallions over to the city's
Taxi & Limousine Commission instead of to the Chapter 7 trustee, a
proposal that earned his counsel a sharp rebuke from Craig, the
report further related.

"I am ordering him to turn them over. He cannot decide that he
ought to turn them over to the TLC. He has to turn them over,"
Reuters cited Judge Craig as saying from the bench. "If he does
not, he will be incarcerated. I am not kidding about this."

Freidman's counsel, David M. Bass, Esq., of Cole Schotz, told the
court that his client was concerned about remaining liable for the
taxis and medallions once they were transferred out of his
possession: first to the Chapter 7 trustee and then to a taxi
management company that has agreed to operate the cabs as they are
sold off piecemeal, the report said.

Under the terms of the turnover, Freidman must deliver the cabs to
the Chapter 7 trustee for safekeeping, then the taxis will be
turned over to NYC Taxi Group, which owns about 300 medallions in
its own right, the report added.

                     About Hypnotic Taxi

Hypnotic Taxi LLC and 21 of its affiliates filed Chapter 11
bankruptcy petitions (Bankr. E.D.N.Y. Lead Case No. 15-43300) on
July 22, 2015.  The petition was signed by Evgeny Freidman as sole
and managing member.

Klestadt Winters Jureller Southard & Stevens LLP serves as the
Debtors' counsel.  Judge Carla E. Craig presides over the case.

The Debtors each own either two or three medallions issued by the
New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission that permit taxi
services to be performed by the Debtors.

Hypnotic Taxi LLC disclosed total assets of $1,941,314 and total
liabilities of $2,825,401 as of the Petition Date.

The U.S. Trustee for Region 2 appointed three creditors to serve
on
the official committee of unsecured creditors.  The Committee
tapped White & Williams LLP as counsel and EisnerAmper as its
accountants and financial advisors.

According to Reuters, the cases were converted to a Chapter 7
liquidation on Sept. 22 after Freidman failed to produce a
realistic reorganization plan and then attempted to publicly
abandon the cabs outside the Queens office of creditor Citibank.


IHEART MEDIA: Lenders Said to Oppose Exchange Offer
---------------------------------------------------
Sridhar Natarajan and Emma Orr, writing for Bloomberg News,
reported that a group of bondholders is planning to reject
iHeartMedia Inc.'s latest effort to push out maturities in a
setback to the biggest U.S. radio operator teetering under $21
billion in debt, according to people with knowledge of the matter.

According to the report, citing one of the people, who asked not to
be identified as the information is not public, almost half the
holders of $347 million of bonds coming due in just over a year
have banded together to oppose the debt exchange offered by the
company.  The unsecured creditors intend to notify the company that
they won't take part in the bond swap that would deliver so-called
priority-guarantee notes maturing in 2021 to the holders, the
report added, further citing the person.

The group is working with law firm Paul Weiss and plans to push for
better terms, the report said.

Bloomberg pointed out that the latest discord presents another
roadblock in the radio broadcaster's attempt to address a mountain
of borrowings heaped on it from a 2008 buyout by Bain Capital and
Thomas H. Lee Partners.  The debt-load has complicated Chief
Executive Officer Bob Pittman's attempt to win back audiences who
have been lured away by online music-streaming providers such as
Spotify, the report said.

The company has been pulling all levers to clean up its balance
sheet, including a rare maneuver to forgo repaying a portion of
debt held by its subsidiary, the report noted.  That surprising
move irked some creditors and triggered payouts on $749 million of
credit-default swaps, the report added.

                       Bankruptcy Warning

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

INTERPACE DIAGNOSTICS: Effects 1-for-10 Reverse Stock Split
-----------------------------------------------------------
Interpace Diagnostics Group, Inc., announced that as of 5:00 p.m.,
Eastern Time, on Dec. 28, 2016, it effected a 1-for-10 reverse
stock split of its outstanding common stock, which will be
effective for trading purposes as of the commencement of trading on
Thursday, Dec. 29, 2016.

At the Annual Meeting of Stockholders held on Aug. 3, 2016, the
reverse stock split was approved by the Company's stockholders to
be effected at the Board's discretion within the approved
parameters and the specific ratio was subsequently approved by the
Company's Board.  The reverse stock split is intended to increase
the per share trading price of the Company's common stock to
satisfy the $1.00 minimum bid price requirement for continued
listing on The NASDAQ Capital Market although the Company
anticipates a NASDAQ hearing and no assurance can be given that
continued listing will occur.  Trading of the Company's common
stock on The NASDAQ Capital Market will continue, on a post-split
basis, with the opening of the markets on Thursday, Dec. 29, 2016,
under the existing trading symbol "IDXG" and under new CUSIP number
46062X 204.  The reverse stock split reduces the number of shares
of the Company's common stock outstanding from approximately 20.2
million shares of common stock pre-reverse split to approximately
2.0 million shares of common stock post-reverse split.  The number
of outstanding options and warrants will be adjusted accordingly,
with outstanding common stock options and restricted stock units
being reduced from approximately 2.2 million to approximately
218,000 and the number of warrants being reduced from 1.6 million
warrants to 160,000 warrants.  The number of authorized shares of
common stock and the par value per share will remain unchanged.

As a result of the reverse stock split, every 10 shares of the
Company's pre-reverse split common stock will be combined and
reclassified into one share of common stock.  Proportionate voting
rights and other rights of common stockholders will not be affected
by the reverse stock split.  No fractional shares of common stock
will be issued as a result of the reverse stock split and instead
holders will receive a cash payment in lieu of fractional shares to
which they would otherwise be entitled.  

After the effective time of the reverse stock split, stockholders
with shares held in certificate form will receive a Letter of
Transmittal and instructions from Interpace Diagnostics' transfer
agent, American Stock Transfer & Trust LLC (AST).  Stockholders
that hold shares in book-entry form or hold their shares in
brokerage accounts are not required to take any action and will see
the impact of the reverse stock split reflected in their accounts.
Beneficial holders of Interpace Diagnostics' common stock are
encouraged to contact their bank, broker, custodian or other
nominee with questions regarding procedures for processing the
reverse stock split.

Additional information about the reverse stock split can be found
in the Company's Definitive Proxy Statement filed with the
Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on June 22, 2016, and in
the Company's Form 8-K filed with the SEC on Dec. 28, 2016, copies
of which is available at www.sec.gov or at the Company's website at
www.interpacediagnostics.com.

"This decision has been made in consultation with advisors and our
Board of Directors and we believe the resulting increase in share
price will broaden the appeal of our shares to investors,
particularly institutional stockholders.  Furthermore, the
management and Board of Directors feel strongly that The NASDAQ
Capital Market stock exchange is the most beneficial and
appropriate exchange on which the Company's shares should trade and
this reverse split should assist us in resolving the minimum
trading price issue, allowing us to work to meet the continuing
listing requirements," said Jack E. Stover, president & CEO of
Interpace Diagnostics.

IPAYMENT INC: S&P Lowers CCR to 'CCC-' on Upcoming Loan Maturity
----------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said that it lowered its corporate credit rating
on New York City-headquartered iPayment Inc. to 'CCC-' from 'CCC'.
The outlook is negative.

S&P also reviewed the recovery and issue-level ratings for the
company that were under criteria observation (UCO) after publishing
S&P's revised recovery ratings criteria on Dec. 7, 2016.  With
S&P's criteria review complete, it is removing the UCO designation
from these ratings and affirming the 'CCC+' issue-level rating on
the first-lien credit facility and revising the recovery rating to
'1' from '2'.  The '1' recovery rating indicates S&P's expectation
of very high recovery (90%-100%) in the event of default.

In addition, S&P affirmed the 'CC' issue-level rating on the
company's second-lien senior secured notes and senior unsecured
notes.  The recovery rating remains '6', indicating S&P's
expectation of negligible (0-10%) recovery in the event of
default.

The rating actions reflect iPayment's significant near-term
refinancing risk driven by high leverage, weak liquidity, and
increasing risk of capital structure unsustainability.  Despite a
debt restructuring in 2014, iPayment remains highly leveraged with
weak free cash flow to debt.  The downgrade reflects S&P's view
that the company will default without an unforeseen positive
development over the next six months.

S&P's highly leveraged assessment of the company's financial risk
profile incorporates its total leverage level of around 8x and free
cash flow to debt of around 2% as of Sept. 30, 2016.  S&P expects
the company to generate free cash flow of $10 million to $20
million in 2016.

iPayment operates in the highly competitive small and midsize U.S.
merchant payment services market with modest market share of about
1% for 2015, according to Nilsen data.  iPayment generated
year-over-year net revenue growth of around 5% in the third quarter
ended Sept. 30, 2016, driven by a shift toward higher revenue
generating merchants, partially offset by a decline in merchants
overall.

Payment processors in aggregate have benefitted from the increasing
prevalence of cashless and e-commerce transactions the past several
years, but competition to attain and retain new merchants by means
of pricing concessions has made for a highly competitive
marketplace, especially for smaller processors, such as iPayment.
S&P expects the company to grow in the mid-single-digit range in
2017 driven by consumer spending and the ongoing conversion from
cash to electronic-based transactions, but offset by high merchant
attrition inherent in the SMB market.

S&P's base case assumes:

   -- U.S. GDP growth of 2.0% in 2016 and 2.4% in 2017;

   -- Mid-single-digit percentage organic revenue growth in 2017,
      driven by consumer spending and the ongoing conversion from
      cash to electronic based transactions, partially offset by
      merchant attrition;

   -- Stable EBITDA margins at about 13% of gross revenue;

   -- Capital expenditures including prepaid residual expenses and

      portfolio acquisitions of about $15 million-$20 million
      annually; and

   -- Free cash flow generation of $10 million to $20 million.

Based on these assumptions, S&P arrives at these credit measures
over the coming year:

   -- S&P Global Ratings' adjusted leverage of about 8x at year-
      end 2016; and

   -- Free cash flow to debt of 1% to 3%.

S&P views iPayment's liquidity sources as insufficient to cover
uses over the next 12 to 18 months, given the company's term loan
maturity in May 2017.  In addition, the covenant flexibility under
the debt to EBITDA financial maintenance covenant of its credit
facility remains tight, with less than 5% EBITDA cushion as of
Sept. 30, 2016.  The financial maintenance covenants, which apply
to the first-lien credit agreement, are a maximum first-lien
leverage ratio of 4.25x and a minimum interest coverage ratio of
1.5x, both without step-downs through maturity.

Liquidity sources:

   -- $12.4 million of cash on the balance sheet as of Sept. 30,
      2016;

   -- Although the company has an undrawn $20 million revolver, no

      liquidity is assumed from it given its near-term expiration;

      and

   -- Operating cash flow of around $30 million over the next 12
      months.

Liquidity uses:

   -- Annual capital expenditures including residual buyout
      payments and portfolio acquisitions of $15 million to
      $20 million; and

   -- Term loan maturity in May 2017.

The negative outlook reflects S&P's assessment of iPayment's weak
liquidity profile, with significant near-term debt maturities and
narrow flexibility under its credit facility's financial
maintenance covenant.

S&P could lower the rating if the company experiences a default
event, such as a missed payment on its upcoming debt maturity or an
announcement of a distressed exchange.

S&P could raise the rating if the company is able to address
refinancing risk of 2017 loan maturities and increase financial
maintenance covenant flexibility while continuing to have organic
net revenue and EBITDA growth.

S&P's simulated default scenario assumes a payment default
occurring in 2017 because of a weak cash flow generation and
liquidity position that stem from subdued operating growth and
inability to sustain its onerous debt capital structure.

   -- Simulated year of default: 2017
   -- EBITDA at emergence: $80 million
   -- EBITDA multiple: 6x

   -- Net enterprise value (after 7% administrative costs):
      $448 million
   -- Valuation split in % (obligors/nonobligors): 100/0
   -- Collateral value available to secured creditors:
      $448 million
   -- Secured first-lien debt: $444 million
      -- Recovery expectations: 90%-100%
   -- Total unsecured debt: $337 million
      -- Recovery expectations: 0%-10%

Note: All debt amounts include six months of prepetition interest.

LAKE LOTAWANA: Court Won't Compel Discovery of Mediation Statement
------------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Cynthia A. Norton of the United States Bankruptcy Court for
the Western District of Missouri denied the motion filed by the MI
Bondholders, LLC, and Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., as Trustee, to compel
discovery of the Lake Lotawana Community Improvement District's
mediation statement.

On August 26, 2016, the District filed for Chapter 9 relief.  Prior
to filing, the District and the Bondholders engaged in mediation,
attempting to negotiate the terms of repayment of matured bonds
owed by the District.  As part of the mediation, the mediator
requested each party provide the mediator with a confidential
mediation statement to educate the mediator about the case and the
parties' respective positions.  The mediation was unsuccessful and
the District subsequently filed for relief under Chapter 9.

Shortly after the District filed for relief, the Movants sought
production of the District's mediation statement to determine
whether the District was an eligible debtor under Chapter 9.  The
District refused.  After the parties agreed to dispense with the
requirements of formal discovery requests, the Movants filed a
Motion to Compel Production of Mediation Statement, arguing as
follows:

     (1) the Statement is not protected by Federal Rule of   
         Evidence 408;

     (2) the parties did not agree in the mediation that the
         Statement was exempt from production in this bankruptcy
         case;

     (3) mediation statements are admitted in many and varied
         circumstances;

     (4) the Statement is not privileged;

     (5) in bad faith litigation, these types of documents must
         be produced; and

     (6) the "sword and shield" doctrine operates to permit
         discovery of the Statement.

Judge Norton considered the first three arguments as essentially
admissibility arguments, and thus, are irrelevant in the context of
the Motion to Compel.  The latter three arguments were summarized
as follows: the Statement is not privileged, and even if it was
privileged, 11 U.S.C. section 109(c)(5)(B) repeals any privilege
that may apply and, in the alternative, the District waived its
privilege.

The District argued the Statement is privileged.

Judge Norton denied the Motion to Compel without prejudice.  The
judge was satisfied that the District has carried its burden in
establishing that the Statement is protected by the work product
privilege.  The judge found that the Movants have failed to carry
their burden in showing substantial need and undue hardship to the
extent the Statement contains ordinary work product.  Judge Norton
similarly found that the Movants have failed to carry their burden
in establishing rare and extraordinary circumstances to the extent
the Statement contains opinion work product.  Moreover, after an in
camera review of the Statement, the judge found no evidence
justifying substantial need and undue hardship, nor rare and
extraordinary circumstances.  To the extent, however, the District
later attempts to use the Statement to prove good faith negotiation
pursuant to 11 U.S.C. section 109(c)(5)(B) -- or for some other
purpose -- Judge Norton stated that the Movants may renew their
Motion to Compel production of the Statement.

order is available at http://bankrupt.com/misc/mowb16-42357-76.pdf

LANDMARK ACADEMY: S&P Affirms 'BB-' Rating on Outstanding Debt
--------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings revised its outlook on Michigan Public
Educational Facilities Authority's (Landmark Academy project)
series 2010 limited-obligation revenue and revenue refunding bonds,
issued for Landmark Academy, to stable from negative.  At the same
time, S&P Global Ratings affirmed its 'BB-' rating on Landmark
Academy's debt outstanding.

"The outlook revision reflects our view of improved enrollment
trends, which translate into better maximum annual debt service
coverage and liquidity levels that are commensurate with the 'BB-'
rating level," said S&P Global Ratings credit analyst Brian
Marshall.  "We expect that the school's coverage levels and cash
position will remain commensurate with this rating level over our
outlook horizon," Mr. Marshall added.

The rating reflects S&P's view of the school's:

   -- Improved maximum annual debt service (MADS) coverage,
      increasing to 1.11x for fiscal 2016, from 0.82x for fiscal
      2015;

   -- Increased days' cash on hand, to 78 days' for fiscal 2016,
      up from 49 days' for fiscal 2015;

   -- Debt service payments from operations after exceeding the
      allotted 20% of per-pupil state aid by about 2% in fiscal
      2016; and

   -- Inherent uncertainty associated with charter renewals,
      because the bonds' final maturity exceeds the existing
      charter's time horizon.

Partly offsetting the above weaknesses, in S&P's opinion, are:

   -- Stable and experienced management that is actively trying to

      manage the school's various operating pressures; and

   -- History of four successful charter renewals and good
      relationship with Saginaw Valley State University (SVSU),
      the charter authorizer.

Initially chartered in 1999 by SVSU, Landmark Academy is a
kindergarten-through-grade 12 (K-12) public, college preparatory
charter school in Kimball Township (St. Clair County), Mich.  The
series 2010 limited obligation revenue and refunding bonds account
for all of Landmark Academy's long-term debt.  The original bond
proceeds were used to purchase the middle school and the high
school, renovate facilities, and refund all of the school's
existing debt.  The bonds are a general obligation of the school,
secured by a pledge of 20% of per-pupil state aid and a
first-mortgage lien on the land and facilities financed via the
bond issuance.

The stable outlook reflects the improvement in Landmark Academy's
MADS coverage and cash position due to improved enrollment trends
following declines related to limited local employment
opportunities.  The outlook also reflects S&P's expectation that
the school's enrollment trends and coverage ratios will remain in
line with the 'BB-' rating level over S&P's one-year outlook
horizon due to better-than-budgeted operating results for fiscal
2017.  It also represents S&P's expectation that management will
not need to resort to short-term financing in fiscal 2017, which
Landmark Academy used in recent years to satisfy cash flow needs.

S&P could lower the rating over its outlook horizon if Landmark
Academy experienced future material enrollment declines that
weakened operations and led to additional cash draws to levels no
longer commensurate with the 'BB-' rating level.

Conversely, S&P would consider positive rating action if the school
were to demonstrate an ability to sustain MADS coverage and
liquidity ratios at current levels while exhibiting moderately
improving enrollment trends.

At the meeting, the Company's stockholders:

MERLIN AVIATION: S&P Assigns B+ Rating on Class C Notes
-------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings assigned its ratings to Merlin Aviation Holdings
DAC's $250.8 million series A, B, and C fixed-rate notes.

The note issuance is an asset-backed securities transaction backed
by aircraft and their related leases, and shares or beneficial
interests in entities that directly and indirectly receive aircraft
portfolio lease rental and residual cash flows, among others.

The ratings reflect:

   -- The likelihood of timely interest on the class A notes
      (excluding the step-up amount) on each payment date,
      ultimate interest on the class B and C notes (excluding the
      step-up amount), and ultimate principal payment on the class

      A, B, and C notes on the legal final maturity at the
      respective rating stress.

   -- The collateral pool, which is expected to consist of 18 in-
      production passenger planes (eight A320-200, eight B737-800,

      and two B737-700).

   -- The 63.2% loan-to-value (LTV; based on the lower of the mean

      and median (LMM) of the aircraft half-life base values and
      half-life current market values) ratio for the class A
      notes, the 70.8% LTV on the class B notes, and the 75.9% LTV

      for the class C notes.

   -- The 14.5-year weighted average age of the mid-life aircraft
      collateral portfolio, which is older than that associated
      with most of the recent transactions rated by S&P Global
      Ratings.

   -- ACG Leasing Ireland's demonstrated aircraft servicing
      ability.  ACG Leasing Ireland has made a preliminary exit
      plan for each aircraft after the existing leases mature
      through extension, re-leasing, and sale.

   -- The existing and future lessees' estimated credit quality
      and diversification.  The 18 aircraft are currently leased
      to 17 airlines in 16 countries, many of the initial lessees
      have low credit quality, and approximately 63.4% of lessees
      (by aircraft value) are domiciled in emerging markets.  
      Three of the 18 aircraft are leased to flag carriers
      internationally.

   -- Each class' scheduled amortization profile, which is
      approximately 13 year amortization to zero for the class A
      notes and approximately seven-year amortization to zero for
      the class B and C notes.

   -- The transaction's debt service coverage ratios (DSCRs),
      utilization trigger, and lease expiration trigger--a failure

      of which will result in the class A, B, and C notes' turbo
      amortization.

   -- Additional principal amounts to pay down the class A notes
      starting in year four of the transaction.  Specifically, in
      both rental and disposition waterfall, in year four, 25% of
      remaining available collections after the payment of
      expenses, interest on the class A notes, liquidity facility
      obligations, replenishment of the maintenance reserve,
      principal on the class A notes, disposition shortfall
      amounts, and interest and principal on the class B notes
      will be used to pay additional principal on the class A
      notes.  In year five, 50% of available collections remaining

      will be used to pay additional principal on the class A
      notes.  After year six, 100% of remaining available
      collection remaining will be used to pay additional
      principal on the class A notes.  Additional principal
      amounts to pay down the class C notes starting in year five.

      Specifically, in both rental and disposition waterfall, in
      year five of the transaction, 75% of the remaining available

      collection amount after the payment of the class A
      additional principal and interest, and principal on the
      class C notes, will be used to pay additional principal on
      the class C notes.  After year six, 100% of remaining
      available collection remaining will be used to pay
      additional principal on the class C notes.

   -- The subordination of class B and C principal and interest to

      the class A interest and principal.

   -- A revolving credit facility that MUFG Securities EMEA plc
      will provide, which is available to cover senior expenses,
      including hedge payments and interest on the class A notes.
      At closing, the commitment amount will be $25 million.  The
      maximum commitment amount will decrease as the notes
      amortize, but will have a floor of 18 months interest on the

      class A notes.

   -- The junior liquidity reserve, which will be funded at
      closing with note proceeds in an amount equal to six months
      interest on the class B notes.  Amounts on deposit may be
      used to pay interest on the class B notes and principal on
      the class B notes at stated maturity.

   -- ICF International's provided maintenance analysis prior to
      closing, which is expected to provide maintenance analysis
      yearly after closing.

   -- The senior indemnification (capped at $10 million), which is

      modeled to occur in the first 12 months.

   -- The transaction's legal structure, which is expected to be
      bankruptcy emote.

MICHAEL D. COHEN: Cohens Seek Plan Filing Extension Thru April 26
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Michael David Cohen and Shari Lee Cohen seek a 120-day extension
from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Maryland of
their exclusive plan filing period and their exclusive plan
solicitation period through and including April 26, 2017, and June
22, 2017, respectively.

Dr. Cohen is the sole shareholder of Michael D. Cohen, M.D., P.A.,
and Mrs. Cohen is responsible for the business administration of
the MDCPA's medical practice.  

The Debtors relate that in 2012, a complaint was filed against the
Debtors and MDCPA in the Circuit Court for Baltimore County, Case
No. 03C12006975, and in May 2016, after a jury trial, the court
entered a judgment against the Debtors and MDCPA for $1,275,000.

The Debtors also relate that when MDCPA sought for bankruptcy
protection, the Debtors started seeking for a global resolution of
their respective Chapter 11 bankruptcy cases and their related
businesses.  Currently, the Debtors are in the process of engaging
their secured creditors in both bankruptcy cases in discussions for
a reorganization on both fronts. These discussions are still in the
early stages and the Debtors need additional time to effectively
negotiate and prepare adequate information necessary for a plan.

MRP GENERATION: S&P Assigns 'BB-' Rating on $270MM Term Loan
------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said that it assigned its 'BB-' rating to MRP
Generation Holding LLC's $270 million term loan due 2022 and
$20 million revolving credit facility due 2021.  The outlook is
stable.  S&P assigned a '1' recovery rating to this debt,
indicating expectations for very high (90%-100%) recovery in the
event of a payment default.

MRP Generation Holdings LLC is a special-purpose, bankruptcy-remote
entity that owns three merchant natural gas-fired power plants in
the PJM and California Independent System Operator (CAISO) markets
with a combined capacity of 1,380 megawatts(MW). The assets are the
830-MW High Desert Facility, completed in April 2003; the 300-MW
Big Sandy facility, completed in June 2001; and the 250-MW facility
Wolf Hills, completed in May 2001.  High Desert sells energy and
capacity into CAISO near Los Angeles, while Big Sandy and Wolf
Hills sell energy, capacity, and ancillary services into the PJM
American Electric Power zone (AEP).

The 'BB-' rating on the new project debt reflects its operations
phase stand-alone credit profile and favorable comparison to
peers.

"The stable outlook reflects S&P's view that MRP Generation
Holdings LLC will continue to meet our expectations both
operationally and financially, with DSCRS above 1.5x on a
consistent basis and high availability at all plants," said S&P
Global Ratings credit analyst Kimberly Yarborough.

S&P could lower the rating if DSCRs were to be sustained below 1.5x
on a consistent basis.  This would likely be due to further
depressed power prices, unexpected forced outages, other
operational issues, or lower-than-expected dispatch.

While unlikely at this time, S&P could upgrade MRP Generation
Holdings LLC if DSCRs exceed 2.25x on a sustained basis, likely
stemming from higher-than-expected capacity prices in uncleared
years, higher-than-expected dispatch at each of the plants, and
markedly improved power prices in the PJM and California.

NEOVASC INC: District Court Bars CardiAQ from Enforcing Judgment
----------------------------------------------------------------
Neovasc Inc. reported that the United States District Court for the
District of Massachusetts has granted a stay of judgment pending
the completion of its appeal.  The judgment stems from a jury
verdict reached in May 2016 and subsequent rulings by the court
related to a lawsuit filed by CardiAQ against Neovasc related to
its Tiara technology.  As a result of the court order imposing a
stay, CardiAQ cannot enforce the money judgment pending the outcome
of the appeal.
"‎Having this stay in place will allow our team to continue to
advance both our Tiara and Reducer products and help patients in
need," commented Alexei Marko, CEO of Neovasc.  "‎2017 is shaping
up to be an exciting time, with important clinical and development
milestones expected throughout the year."

Under the terms of the stay, Neovasc will deposit US$70 million
into a joint escrow account and enter into a general security
agreement related to the remaining damages awarded by the court.
Neovasc will also require court approval for transactions outside
the course of normal business until such time that an appeal is
decided in Neovasc's favor or the Company posts the remaining
amount of money judgement into the joint escrow account.

The Company is preparing to appeal the validity of the award, as
well as the ruling on inventorship to the United States Court of
Appeal for the Federal Circuit.  The appellate process may take
approximately a year to complete.

to continue to vigorously defend itself in the litigation with
CardiAQ.

NUTRITION RUSH: Wants Court Approval for Cash Collateral Use
------------------------------------------------------------
Nutrition Rush, LLC seeks authorization from the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the District of Nevada to use cash collateral.

The Debtor is a health supplement retailer, operating stores in
Nevada, Arizona and California.  The Debtor depends on the revenues
from its retail sales in the health supplement stores, in part, to
maintain its business operations, payroll and all other necessary
expenses for the business.  

The Debtor submits that the proposed use of cash collateral is
necessary to preserve its business during the Chapter 11 Case, and
will avoid immediate and irreparable harm to its estate and
creditors, as such, it affirmatively and directly benefits the
estate and creditors by enhancing the prospects of a successful
outcome of the Chapter 11 Case.

The proposed Budget provides for payment of postpetition operating
expenses and expenses of administrating the Chapter 11 Case
including, mainly, costs and expenses necessary to maintain and
operate health supplement stores, other expenses in respect of the
Debtor’s day-to-day operations, and professional fees and
expenses associated with the administration of its Chapter 11 Case.


The proposed Budget provides for total operating expenses of
approximately $174,431 per month, from January 2017 through June
2017.

The Debtor believes that the Internal Revenue Service and/or state
taxing authorities in Nevada, California, and Arizona may have
liens in the Debtor's property and assets.

The Debtor asserts that the Taxing Authorities are adequately
protected by virtue of the Debtor's continued operation of its
business and the expenditure of cash maintaining its business.  The
Debtor further asserts that it is unsure which of the Taxing
Authorities hold liens in its property and assets as it has not yet
performed a perfection analysis to determine the validity and
enforceability of the liens of the Taxing Authorities, including
the liens on purported Cash Collateral.  

The Debtor proposes to hold in reserve $5,000 of the Cash
Collateral, as adequate protection to the Taxing Authorities, until
the Debtor determines which of the Taxing Authorities is entitled
to it.

The Debtor also proposes to provide and maintain, through a grant
of post-petition replacement liens and security interests, to the
extent of any diminution in value of the Prepetition Collateral, as
adequate protection for the Taxing Authorities.

OAKFABCO INC: Can File Chapter 11 Plan Through Feb. 7
-----------------------------------------------------
Judge Jack B. Schmetterer of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Northern District of Illinois extended Oakfabco, Inc.'s exclusive
periods for filing a chapter 11 plan and soliciting acceptances to
the plan through February 7, 2017 and April 7, 2017, respectively.

Judge Schmetterer also extended the Plan Filing Deadline through
March 31, 2017.

The Debtor previously had until December 31, 2016 to file a chapter
11 plan, and until February 28, 2017, to solicit acceptances to the
plan.

The Debtor sought the extension of its exclusive periods,
contending that it is the the policyholder under various insurance
policies that provide coverage for Asbestos Claims.  The Debtor
further contended that the issuers of such insurance are First
State Insurance Company, New England Reinsurance Company, and Twin
City Fire Insurance Company, collectively known as Hartford;
Affiliated FM Insurance Company; and American Casualty Company,
Continental Casualty Company and Columbia Casualty Company,
collectively known as CNA.

The Debtor related that it conducted negotiations with the Settling
Insurers prior to filing its Chapter 11 Case.  The Debtor further
related that those negotiations resulted in three Insurance
Settlement Agreements with the Settling Insurers that, among other
things, monetize the policies issued by the Settling Insurers in
the aggregate amount of $17,333,079.

The Debtor said that the Court had set the CNA Settlement Motion
for evidentiary hearing commencing on June 6, 2017.  The Debtor
further said that with respect to the Hartford Settlement Motion,
Hartford was directed to file a motion for partial summary judgment
on the issue of the maximum potential amount for which it could be
liable under its policies with the Debtor.  The Debtor added that
the motion had been fully briefed and taken under advisement.

The Debtor contended that it does not appear that the Court will
rule upon either of the CNA or Hartford Settlement Motions until
sometime in 2017.

A status conference for a report on the status of the plan and
disclosure statement is scheduled on April 7, 2017 at 11:00 a.m.

               About Oakfabco, Inc.

Oakfabco, Inc, formerly known as Kewanee Boiler Corporation, has
not manufactured boilers since 1988 when it sold its Kewanee boiler
business in an 11 U.S.C. Section 363 sale to Coppus Engineering
Corporation.  In early 2009, it sold all of its remaining assets.


The Debtor has no employees, and, Frederick W. Stein is the

Boiler."  The boilers manufactured and sold by Kewanee Boiler were
insulated with asbestos.

claims.  The petition was signed by Frederick W. Stein, president.

Stephen T. Bobo, Esq., Aaron B. Chapin, Esq., Paul M. Singer, Esq.,
Luke A. Sizemore, Esq., and Joseph D. Filloy, Esq., at Reed Smith
LLP, serves as counsel to the Debtor.

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

annual report on Form 10-K disclosing a net loss of $10.30 million
on $17.69 million of revenues for the year ended Sept. 30, 2016,
compared to a net loss of $11.69 million on $21.28 million of
revenues for the year ended Sept. 30, 2015.

As of Sept. 30, 2016, Ominto had $21.68 million in total assets,
$29.21 million in total liabilities and a total stockholders'
deficit of $7.52 million.

"Our primary source of liquidity is from cash generated from equity
financing and debt financing and short term advances.  Our primary
liquidity needs are for working capital, investments/acquisitions,
and repayment of debt and advances.

"The Company's Board of Directors and Executive Management
reasonably believes that the Company will continue to exist to
carry out all objectives, commitments, and stated goals for the
immediate future.  Profitability and positive cash flows from
operations continue to improve.  There is no significant
information available to the contrary, as the company is currently
able to meet all current and immediate obligations without
substantial asset sales or restructuring.  Also, with the
introduction of the new operations platform and business model and
the arrival of new Executive Management members, Management
believes that the financial and business trends will continue to be
positive for the foreseeable future.  Furthermore, there are no
known loan defaults, denial of trade credit from suppliers, and no
known adverse legal proceedings that could materially affect the
Company.

"We continue to update our product offerings which places
additional demands on future cash flows.  Our future cash flow and
capital requirements will depend on numerous factors including
market acceptance of our future products, revenues generated from
operations, the impact of competitive product offerings, and
whether we are successful in acquiring additional customers on a
large scale through partners.  We intend to increase our marketing
efforts in order to grow our network of BAs which we expect will
improve sales of our e-commerce products.  The marketing efforts
will place additional demands on our cash flows.  We cannot offer
any assurance that we will be successful in generating revenues
from operations; adequately dealing with competitive pressures;
acquiring complementary products, technologies or business; or
increasing our marketing efforts.  Our plans for the long-term
include generating cash flows from the profitable operation of our
business and financing our operations through sales of our common
stock and/or debt.

"The Company had a working capital deficit (defined as current
assets less current liabilities) of approximately $9.6 million as
of September 30, 2016.

"We generated net cash flows from operating activities of
approximately $1.7 million during fiscal year 2016 consisting
primarily of the positive effect of net changes in assets and
liabilities.

"We used net cash flows from investing activities of $729,000
during fiscal year 2016 due to our capital expenditures," as
disclosed in the annual report.

roadmap to create value for our customers, business partners and
shareholders.  Bolstered by our lender's renewed support, our team
continues its commitment to the execution of our plan to move the
business forward, expanding our sales organization, continuing to
drive technical innovation and building on the momentum we have

Pursuant to the Amendment, the lender has agreed to extend the
maturity date on the $10.1 million of outstanding principal and
premiums to June 30, 2017.  Upon repayment of $1.5 million by March
31, 2017, and an additional $1.5 million by June 30, 2017, the
maturity date on the remaining outstanding debt will be
automatically extended to Dec. 31, 2017.  A further automatic
extension to Feb. 28, 2018, is based on the Company achieving
certain leverage ratios as of Nov. 30, 2017.  In addition, the
Company agrees to repay $250,000 by the end of each fiscal quarter
of 2017, and $500,000 by the end of each fiscal quarter of 2018.

million payments in 2017.  As part of the Amendment, the lender

Company at $0.13 per share through Dec. 27, 2019.  For further
details, please see the Company's filing on Form 8-K dated,

PELICAN REAL ESTATE: Plan Filing Deadline Extended Thru Jan. 5
--------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Roberta A. Colton of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Middle
District of Florida extended the exclusive periods within which
Pelican Real Estate, LLC and its affiliated Debtors may file a plan
of reorganization through and including January 5, 2017, and
solicit acceptances of such plan through and including the date of
any hearing to consider confirmation of the Debtors' plan.

The Troubled Company Reporter had earlier reported that the Debtors
sought for exclusivity extension contending that it is appropriate
that the Court consider its Motion for Substantive Consolidation
prior to filing a Chapter 11 Plan and Disclosure Statement.  

The Debtors told the Court that they had previously sought
exclusivity extension until December 5, 2016, so that Maria Yip,
the court-appointed Examiner, could complete and issue her report
prior to the expiration of exclusivity.  Subsequently, the Examiner
filed her report on November 21, 2016, recommending that the
Debtors should be substantively consolidated into a single entity.

PETROLEUM GEO-SERVICES: S&P Lowers CCR to 'SD' on Exchange Offer
----------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings lowered its long-term corporate credit rating on
Norwegian seismic group Petroleum Geo-Services to 'SD' (selective
default) from 'CC'.

At the same time, S&P has lowered its issue rating on PGS'
$450 million senior unsecured notes due 2018 to 'D' from 'C'.  The
recovery rating on these notes remains unchanged at '6', reflecting
S&P's expectation of negligible (0-10%) recovery in the event of a
payment default and the significant amount of secured debt that
ranks ahead of the notes.

S&P is affirming its 'CCC+' rating on the $400 million senior
secured notes and removing it from CreditWatch, where S&P placed it
with negative implications on Nov. 29, 2016.  The recovery rating
remains unchanged at '3', reflecting S&P's expectation of
meaningful recovery in the higher half of the 50%-70% range in the
event of a payment default.

The downgrade follows PGS' recent announcement that about 94% of
the holders of its $450 million outstanding senior unsecured notes
exchanged their debt for $212 million new notes due 2020 (50%) and
$202 million in cash.  In S&P's view, the conversion is tantamount
to a default.

As part of the transaction, PGS completed a private placement
raising $225 million in equity and an extension of its revolving
credit facility (RCF) to September 2020 from September 2018, while
reducing the size of the facility gradually to $350 million from
$500 million.

S&P's view of the offer as a distressed exchange reflects:

   -- S&P's view of the company's rating prior to the transaction
      (in the 'CCC' category) and the very challenging market
      environment the company continues to operate in.  S&P's view

      that noteholders are obtaining less than the originally
      promised amount.  In this respect, the redemption is below
      the nominal value of the liability, and the noteholders are
      not being compensated for delaying the maturity by two
      years.

Following the transaction, PGS' gross debt will be about
$1.2 billion, consisting of $150 million drawn under the RCF,
$390 million under the term loan, about $400 million under export
credit financing, and $238 million senior unsecured notes,
consisting of $26 million of old notes maturing in 2018 and $212
million of new notes maturing in 2020.  The company's S&P Global
Ratings' adjusted debt will be about $1.7 billion, including
sizable operating lease obligations of $400 million.  There are no
material maturities in the coming years and PGS will be subject to
more relaxed financial covenants under its RCF.

Despite the size of the equity injection, S&P still projects an
unsustainable capital structure following the transaction.  That
said, assuming some recovery in the seismic market toward the
second half of 2017 and in 2018, S&P now sees potential for
reducing leveraging.  Under S&P's base case, it now projects
adjusted debt to EBITDA (excluding cash) at above 8x in 2017 (pro
forma adjusted debt to EBITDA in 2016 is about 9.5x).  As a result,
S&P expects to raise its long-term corporate credit rating on PGS
to 'CCC+' in the coming days.

PIONEER HEALTH: Judge OKs Sale of Stokes County Hospital
--------------------------------------------------------
The American Bankruptcy Institute, citing Richard Craver of
Winston-Salem Journal, reported that a federal bankruptcy court
judge has approved the sale of Stokes County's hospital and other
medical facilities for $400,000 to a for-profit organization with
limited experience running hospitals.

According to the report, an affiliate of LifeBrite Hospital Group
LLC of Lilburn, Ga., has been running the Stokes facilities since
July 9 -- three days before the Stokes Board of Commissioners said
it would stop paying for the hospital's financial commitments.

The court set a closing date of Jan. 31 for the Stokes transaction,
the report related.

Commissioners agreed to transfer the lease for the medical
facilities to Life-Brite. The Stokes medical facilities altogether
have about 200 employees, the report said.

LifeBrite has agreed to takeover $1.3 million in Medicare and
Medicaid payment obligations from for-profit Pioneer Health
Services, which filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection March
31, the report further related.

There were several legal challenges filed against LifeBrite's
proposal, mostly related to Pioneer's inability or delay in making
payments for medical equipment and software, or to medical
insurers, the report said.  Each challenge has been resolved by
LifeBrite and the bankruptcy court prior to the acceptance of
Lifebrite's offer, the report added.

The report noted that, to resolve the challenges, LifeBrite will,
among other things, have to sign new leases for some pieces of
medical equipment and software.

PLASTIC2OIL INC: CEO Provides Review & Update to Shareholders
-------------------------------------------------------------
Plastic2Oil, Inc.'s chief executive officer issued a letter to
stockholders on Dec. 29, 2016, describing certain business updates,
a full-text copy of which is as follows:

To our valued Plastic2Oil shareholders, as 2016 draws to a close, I
wanted to provide a review and update on the status of our company.


Reducing Costs; Improving Cash Position

Over the past 3 1/2 years the focus of the operation was to
stabilize the company and sell Plastic2Oil processors.  The cash
burn rate has been dramatically reduced by minimizing labor,
consultant, legal and audit fee costs.  This was achieved though
bringing the work in house and finding qualified service providers.
During this period, given my strong belief in the commercial and
environmental value of our technology, I have personally continued
to invest several million dollars to support operations while we
pursued our new business strategy.  Recently, other investors who
share my conviction joined me and provided additional equity
financing proceeds of $600,000.

Further, we negotiated the sale of our idle office building in
Thorold, Canada and it is anticipated that closing will take place
in January 2017.  The net proceeds from the equity financing and
the real estate sale will be used for working capital purposes in
order to sustain company operations while we continue our efforts
to pursue the license of our technology.  I look forward to
updating our shareholders upon the closing of the real estate
transaction.

Negotiating strategic partnership

In August 2016, we announced the signing of a memorandum of
understanding with a potential partner regarding the licensing of
our technology and a potential sale of processor units.  We are
still in the process of negotiating a definitive agreement with the
potential partner.  If consummated, it is anticipated the first
site would house two Plastic2Oil processors, and eventually may
lead to deployment of processors in 15 to 20 similar facilities.
We look forward to updating our shareholders upon the signing of a
definitive agreement.

Industry News

Recently, it was reported that a large plastic recycling facility
is planned to be constructed in central Indiana.  This $350 million
dollar recycling facility will include a "plastic to fuel"
component.  While Plastic2Oil is not involved in this project, we
believe that this project further validates the potential market
for plastic to fuel technology.  Other similar facilities are
foreseen and expected to be established in North America and
worldwide, effectively enhancing the use of hydrocarbon resources
while addressing costly environmental landfill issues.  This past
week a market intelligence firm released a report forecasting the
plastic to fuel market potential.

We continue to believe that Plastic2Oil technology is superior to
any offerings from all other suppliers of similar technologies.

We are also pursuing other revenue streams from our other existing
Plastic2Oil assets.  For example, we are in negotiations to
potentially lease out the Canadian blending facility and we are
examining the possibility to resume the operations of the Niagara
Falls facility on a cost-effective, limited basis in 2017.  It
should be noted, as was forecast last spring, the price of oil has
recently rebounded to above $50 per barrel.

Governance

Consideration to expanding our management and sales team in order
to effectively address processor sales is underway.  We also
continue to search for and evaluate potential candidates for
appointment to our Board of Directors.  Discussions continue with
qualified candidates in both areas.  Action will be taken only as
financial circumstances allow.

Thank you to our shareholders for your continued support.  I wish
you happy holidays and a prosperous 2017.

Plastic2Oil CEO & President

PRECISION WELDING: Can Use Cash Collateral on Final Basis
---------------------------------------------------------
Judge Sandra R. Klein of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Central
District of California authorized Precision Welding, Inc. to use
cash collateral in the ordinary course of its business on a final
basis through plan confirmation.

post-petition assets of the Debtor, which will have the same
extent, validity and priority as were their respective liens and
security interests in the prepetition collateral.  She held that
these liens will be deemed valid and perfected with such priority
as provided in the Order, without any further notice or act by any
party that may otherwise be required under any law.

PRESTIGE BRANDS: S&P Affirms 'B+' CCR & Revises Outlook to Neg.
---------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said that it affirmed its 'B+' corporate credit
rating on Tarrytown, N.Y.-based Prestige Brands Inc. and revised
the outlook to negative from stable.

At the same time, S&P placed all its issue-level ratings, including
the 'BB' rating on the existing senior secured debt and 'B' rating
on the existing senior unsecured debt, on CreditWatch with negative
implications.  S&P will resolve the CreditWatch placement once it
has greater clarity regarding the capital structure.

"The outlook revision reflects the deterioration of Prestige
Brands' credit metrics because of its proposed acquisition of C.B.
Fleet Co., which will be predominantly funded with debt.  We
estimate pro forma adjusted debt to EBITDA will increase to the
low-6x area from 4.9x.  The corporate credit rating affirmation
reflects our view that the company will successfully integrate the
Fleet acquisition and apply free cash flow for debt reduction to
improve its credit protection measures over the next two to three
years.  This includes our forecast for leverage to decline to the
mid-5x area by the end of fiscal-year 2018 (ending March 31) from
the low-6x area pro forma at the close of the transaction.  We
could still lower the ratings if the integration does not proceed
as planned or if credit measures do not strengthen over the next
year.  That could occur if sales are weaker than expected despite
increased brand spending, which we believe could result in reduced
cash flow generation and leverage remaining around 6x.  We consider
Prestige's financial policy to be aggressive based on its active
acquisition-based growth strategy and on its use of debt as its
primary source to fund such transactions.  Our rating incorporates
the expectation that acquisition activity will be limited until
credit measures strengthen such that leverage declines to below
5x," S&P said.

S&P placed the issue-level ratings on Prestige on CreditWatch with
negative implications because it is increasing its debt levels. The
recovery and issue-level ratings could be affected by the mix of
debt and equity it uses to fund the acquisition.  S&P will resolve
the CreditWatch after the company announces its funding plans for
the transaction.

The Fleet transaction is a continuation of Prestige's growth
strategy of acquiring category-leading brands from competitors that
underinvested in marketing and were unable to extract the brand's
maximum profit potential.  The company's strategy is to boost sales
with new product innovations for the acquired brands and increased
marketing spending.  S&P believes Prestige's acquisitions over the
past few years have been successful and have provided greater
negotiating leverage with key retail customers and a larger
presence in Canada and Australia.

The acquisition of Fleet will modestly strengthen Prestige's
business risk by increasing the diversity of its brand portfolio
with the addition of Summer's Eve to its feminine care category.
Our ratings on Prestige continue to reflect the company's lack of
international diversity in its product lines and its participation
in the highly competitive OTC health care and household consumer
products segment, where it competes with much larger and better
capitalized companies with greater resources for product
development and marketing, including Johnson & Johnson and Procter
& Gamble.  The company also competes against private-label
companies.  Prestige has some customer concentration, with its
largest customer, Wal-Mart Stores Inc., accounting for about 18% of
the company's sales for the past year.  S&P also factored into the
rating the benefits from the company's strong market share in
high-margin niche categories. Generally its brands hold the No. 1
or No. 2 position in their categories. Prestige has relatively good
operating efficiency, focusing on the marketing and development of
its brands while outsourcing manufacturing to third parties.  The
company consistently generates margins in the mid-30% area, given
its participation in the high-margin OTC market and its low cost
structure.

S&P's forecast for the company reflects modest economic growth in
the U.S. and overall profit stability.  S&P's baseline forecast is
for U.S. real GDP to grow 1.6% this year and 2.4% in 2017.  This,
along with solid free cash flow generation, should enable the
company to strengthen its credit metrics during the next two years.
Additional assumptions include:

   -- Pro forma sales growth by double-digit percents in fiscal
      2017, driven by low-single-digit percent organic growth--in
      line with U.S. economic growth--plus merger and acquisition
      (M&A) activities.  S&P expects mid-single-digit percent
      sales growth in the out years as the company maintains good
      market share with modest growth prospects based on favorable

      industry trends of the aging U.S. population and a higher
      propensity for the broad population to self-medicate with
      OTC products.

   -- EBITDA margins in the mid-30% area from mix shift
      improvements to higher-margin products, cost-saving
      initiatives, and cost savings from supply chain integration.

   -- Free cash flow totals of $190 million-$240 million in
      fiscals 2017 and 2018.  Annual capital expenditures (capex)
      remain relatively stable around $6 million.

   -- Fleet acquisition price of $825 million in fiscal 2017 and
      an annual acquisition price of about $200 million
      thereafter.

Based on these assumptions, S&P forecasts debt to EBITDA in the
low-6x area pro forma for the transaction and the mid-5x area in
fiscal 2018 and funds from operations (FFO) to debt in the low-teen
percents in fiscals 2017 and 2018.

S&P considers Prestige's liquidity to be adequate.  S&P expects
sources to exceed uses by more than 1.2x over the next 12 months,
even with a 15% decline in EBITDA, and that Prestige would maintain
compliance with its covenants.  In S&P's opinion, Prestige has
sound bank relationships, a generally satisfactory standing in
credit markets, and prudent financial risk management. S&P also
believes the company likely can absorb high-impact, low-probability
events with limited need for refinancing.

Principal liquidity sources:

   -- Approximately $30 million cash and equivalents as of
      Sept. 30, 2016.

   -- About $68 million availability of an asset-based loan (ABL)
      revolver expiring in 2019.

   -- $240 million-$260 million annual cash FFO.

   -- $825 million funding of the acquisition, the majority of
      which S&P assumes will be debt.

Principal liquidity uses:

   -- About $15 million in annual debt maturities over the next
      two years.
   -- Approximately $6 million annual capex.
   -- $10 million peak–to-trough working capital.
   -- $825 million for the Fleet acquisition.

S&P's corporate credit rating incorporates a one-notch uplift from
its 'b' anchor for comparable rating analysis.  The favorable
adjustment is based on the company's leading positions in niche
brands, the diversity of its product portfolio, and demographic
trends that should support top-line growth and contribute to
continued good free cash flow generation.  Other modifiers had no
impact on the ratings.

The negative outlook reflects the higher debt levels and weaker
credit measures that will result from Prestige Brands' proposed
acquisition of Fleet.  S&P forecasts debt to EBITDA in the low-6x
area pro forma for the transaction.  S&P expects the company to
apply free cash flow for debt reduction to improve its credit
measures, including debt to EBITDA in the mid-5x area by the end of
fiscal 2018.  S&P could lower the rating if the integration does
not proceed as planned or if credit measures do not strengthen over
the next year.  That could occur if sales are weaker than expected
despite increased brand spending, which S&P believes could result
in reduced cash flow generation and leverage remaining around 6x.

Upside scenario

S&P could revise our outlook to stable if profitability remains
solid and the company applies free cash flow to debt reduction such
that credit measures strengthen, including improving debt to EBITDA
to around 5x by fiscal year end 2018.  S&P estimates this will
occur if the company reduces total debt from its expected fiscal
2018 debt–to-EBITDA level in the mid-5x area by about
$250 million or increases EBITDA about 15%, possibly through a
combination of organic sales and additional improvement in margins
over the next two years.

ROOT9B TECHNOLOGIES: Sold $3.07 Million New Notes on Dec. 22
------------------------------------------------------------
As previously disclosed, root9B Holdings, Inc., a Delaware
corporation is offering secured convertible promissory notes with
an aggregate principal amount of up to $10,000,000, along with
warrants to purchase shares of the Company's common stock, par
value $0.001 per share, representing 50% warrant coverage, to
certain accredited investors, in a private placement, pursuant to a
securities purchase agreement by and between the Company and each
Investor.

On Sept. 9, 2016, the Company completed the initial closing of such
private placement, at which the Company sold Notes with an
aggregate principal amount equal to $2,636,000, along with Warrants
to purchase approximately 109,833 shares of Common Stock. On Sept.
21, 2016, the Company held a second closing of such private
placement, at which the Company sold Notes with an aggregate
principal amount equal to $1,000,000, along with Warrants to
purchase approximately 41,666 shares of Common Stock. On Sept. 30,
2016, the Company held a third closing of such private placement,
at which the Company sold Notes with an aggregate principal amount
equal to $60,000, along with Warrants to purchase 2,500 shares of
Common Stock.  On Dec. 22, 2016, the Company held a fourth closing
of such private placement, at which the Company sold New Notes with
an aggregate principal amount equal to $3,075,000, along with
Warrants to purchase 128,124 shares of Common Stock.  Following the
Closing, the Company may sell additional Notes with an aggregate
principal amount of up to $3,229,000, along with Warrants to
purchase 134,541 shares of Common Stock, at additional closings,
which may be conducted on a rolling basis until Dec. 31, 2016.

The term of each Note is three years after issuance.  Each Note
accrues interest at a rate of 10% per annum, payable on each March
31, June 30, September 30 and December 31, commencing December 31,
2016 until the earlier of (i) the entire principal amount being
converted or (ii) the Maturity Date.  The interest payments shall
be made in either cash or, at the holder's option, in shares of
Common Stock at a per share price equal to 85% of the average daily
volume weighted average price of the Common Stock during the five
consecutive trading day period immediately prior to the interest
payment date, but in no event less than $12.00 per share. Following
the date which is six months after the date of issuance, at the
election of the holder, all principal and interest due and owing
under each Note is convertible into shares of Common Stock at a
conversion price equal to $12.00.  The conversion price is subject
to adjustment for stock splits, stock dividends, combinations, or
similar events.  Pursuant to a security agreement entered into
concurrently with the Investors, the Notes are secured by
substantially all of the Company's assets, subject to certain
exceptions including the assets related to and held by IPSA
International, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company.

The Company may prepay any portion of the outstanding principal
amount of any Note and any accrued and unpaid interest, with the
prior written consent of the holder, by paying to the holder an
amount equal to (i) if the prepayment date is prior to the first
anniversary of the date of issuance, (1) the unpaid principal to be
repaid plus (2) any accrued but unpaid interest plus (3) an amount
equal to the interest which has not accrued as of the prepayment
date but would accrue on the principal to be repaid during the
period beginning on the prepayment date and ending on the
Anniversary Date of the then-outstanding principal amount of that
Note or (ii) if the prepayment date is after the Anniversary Date,
(1) the unpaid principal to be repaid plus (2) any accrued but
unpaid interest plus (3) an amount equal to one-half of the
interest which has not accrued as of the prepayment date but would
accrue on the principal to be repaid during the period beginning on
the prepayment date and ending on the Maturity Date.

The Warrants have a term of five years, an exercise price of $0.80
per share and may be exercised at any time following the date which
is six months after the date of issuance.  The number of shares of
Common Stock issuable upon exercise of the Warrants is subject to
adjustment for certain stock dividends or stock splits, or any
reclassification of the outstanding securities of, or
reorganization of, the Company.

Pursuant to the terms of both the Notes and the Warrants, a holder
may not be issued Shares if, after giving effect to the conversion
or exercise of the Shares, as applicable, the holder, together with
its affiliates, would beneficially own in excess of 9.99% of the
outstanding shares of Common Stock.  In addition, in the event the
Company consummates a consolidation or merger with or into another
entity or other reorganization event in which the Common Stock is
converted or exchanged for securities, cash or other property, or
the Company sells, assigns, transfers, conveys or otherwise
disposes of all or substantially all of its assets or the Company
(other than the sale, merger or asset sale of IPSA) or another
entity acquires 50% or more of the outstanding Common Stock, then
following such event, (i) at their election within 30 days of
consummation of the transaction, the holders of the Notes will be
entitled to receive the Prepayment Amount, and (ii) the holders of
the Warrants will be entitled to receive upon exercise of such
Warrants the same kind and amount of securities, cash or property
which the holders would have received had they exercised the
Warrants immediately prior to such transaction.  Any successor to
the Company or surviving entity shall assume the Company's
obligations under the Notes and the Warrants.

Additionally, the Notes shall not be convertible into Common Stock
(nor any interest paid in Common Stock), and the Warrants shall not
be exercisable for Common Stock, until the Company has a sufficient
number of shares of Common Stock available for issuance to permit
full conversion or exercise of the Notes and Warrants,
respectively.

Effective as of Dec. 22, 2016, the Company and the holders of a
majority of the outstanding aggregate principal amount of the Notes
entered into an amendment to the Agreement to provide for the
issuance by the Company of a second form of secured promissory
note.  The Company and certain holders of Notes also entered into
amendments to the Notes.  The Note Amendments amend the Notes to
provide holders with a one-time option to partially redeem up to
50% of the Outstanding Amount if cash proceeds received by the
Company in connection with the sale of IPSA exceed certain
threshold levels.  The New Notes are materially identical to the
Notes, as amended by the Note Amendments.

                         About Root9B

Root9B Technologies, Inc., is a provider of cyber-security,
business advisory services principally in regulatory risk
mitigation, and energy and controls solutions.

Root9B reported a net loss of $8.33 million in 2015 following a net
loss of $24.43 million in 2014.

As of Sept. 30, 2016, Root9B had $31.05 million in total assets,
$13.82 million in total liabilities, and $17.22 million in total
stockholders' equity.

"The Company will need to raise additional funds in order to fund
operations.  Financing transactions, may include the issuance of
equity or debt securities, and obtaining credit facilities, or
other financing mechanisms.  However, if the trading price of our
common stock declines, or if the Company continues to incur losses,
this could make it more difficult to obtain financing through the
issuance of equity or debt securities.  Furthermore, if we issue
additional equity or debt securities, stockholders will likely
experience additional dilution or the new equity securities may
have rights, preferences or privileges senior to those of existing
holders of our common stock.  The inability to obtain additional
financing may restrict our ability to grow and may affect
operations of the Company, its ability to retain and hire critical
staff and revenue producing sub-contractors, and will raise
substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going
concern," the Company said in its quarterly report for the period
ended Sept. 30, 2016.


ROYAL CARIBBEAN: S&P Affirms 'BB+' CCR & Revises Outlook to Pos.
----------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said it revised its rating outlook on
Miami-based Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. to positive from stable.
S&P affirmed all ratings on the company, including the 'BB+'
corporate credit rating.

"The outlook revision to positive reflects our expectation that
Royal could improve total lease and port commitment adjusted debt
to EBITDA by approximately 0.5x to the low-3x area in 2017 compared
to S&P's forecast in the high-3x area in 2016," said S&P Global
Ratings credit analyst Melissa Long.

Importantly, it is S&P's understanding from management that it
intends to sustain this measure of adjusted leverage below 3.5x,
and will prioritize debt reduction over share repurchases until it
gets below this financial policy target.  S&P's forecast for
leverage improvement is supported by its expectation for continued
good cruise demand, which should drive increased net revenue yields
(on a constant currency basis) and modest EBITDA growth, as well as
significantly lower capital expenditures in 2017 because Royal has
no ship deliveries.  S&P also expects FFO to debt to improve above
25% next year.  S&P expects Royal will be able to reduce debt
balances by at least $1.3 billion in 2017, as S&P expects Royal to
use the majority of its discretionary cash flow to repay debt
balances given its stated financial policy objective to achieve an
investment grade rating, and assume it would only engage in share
repurchases if it generates greater discretionary cash flow than
S&P is currently forecasting.  S&P believes leverage under 3.5x
could provide sufficient cushion compared to our 3.75x downgrade
threshold so that Royal could withstand a moderate downturn in
operating performance without materially breaching that threshold.


The positive rating outlook reflects S&P's expectation that Royal
Caribbean Cruises Ltd. could improve total lease and port
commitment adjusted debt to EBITDA approximately by 0.5x to the
low-3x area in 2017 and FFO to debt to above 25%, through a
combination of modest EBITDA growth and meaningful debt repayment
with over $1.3 billion in discretionary cash flow in 2017.  In
addition, it is S&P's understanding that management's financial
policy is to sustain leverage under 3.5x.


RUDEN MCCLOSKY: Final Checks Mailed to Creditors
------------------------------------------------
The American Bankruptcy Institute, citing Ron Hurtibise of Sun
Sentinel, reported that about 300 creditors of the failed Ruden
McClosky law firm can expect to receive a check for pennies on the
dollar of what they were owed when the once-mighty firm filed for
Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 2011.

According to the report, the U.S. Bankruptcy Court approved a final
distribution equal to 3 percent of the $7.6 million in claims
allowed by the court. Combined with a 10 percent distribution in
May 2015, the creditors are recovering $1.03 million of the $7.6
million, the report related.

That $7.6 million in "allowed claims" was itself a fraction of the
$73 million creditors claimed was owed when the firm declared
bankruptcy, the report said.

In 2015, Wells Fargo, the firm's secured lender received $4.8
million, while priority tax and wage creditors were paid in full --
about $58,000, Joseph Luzinski, senior managing director of the
debt restructuring firm Development Specialists Inc., told the news
agency.

The largest of the final checks -- $16,000 -- was paid to U.S.
Bank, a company that financed leases of the firm's office
equipment, Mr. Luzinski further told Sun Sentinel.  Dozens who
received final payments were former law partners who had retired or
left the firm but had payouts remaining on the books, the report
said.

                       About Ruden McClosky

Founded in 1959, Ruden McClosky P.A., fdba Ruden, McClosky, Smith,
Schuster & Russell, P.A. -- http://www.ruden.com/-- was a full-  
service law firm serving the legal needs of clients throughout
Florida, the U.S., and internationally.  It had eight offices in
Florida.  The Ruden firm had 67 attorneys and 148 total employees
on entering Chapter 11.

In August 2011, the firm was reportedly in merger talks with
Cleveland, Ohio-based Benesch firm.  In September 2011, founder
Donald McClosky died after a long battle with cancer.

Ruden McClosky filed for Chapter 11 protection (Bankr. S.D. Fla.
Case No. 11-40603) on Nov. 1, 2011, in its hometown of Fort
Lauderdale, with a plan to sell a substantial portion of its
assets for $7.6 million to Fort Lauderdale-based Greenspoon
Marder, subject to higher and better offers at an auction.

Judge Raymond B. Ray oversees the case.  Leslie Gern Cloyd, Esq.,
and Paul Steven Singerman, Esq., at Berger Singerman, P.A., serve
as the Debtor's counsel.  Development Specialists, Inc., serves as
the Debtor's restructuring advisors.  The Debtor tapped Steven J.
Gutter, P.A., as its special litigation counsel in connection with
collection of accounts receivable, and authorization to settle
accounts receivable claims in the ordinary course of business.

The petition was signed by DSI's Joseph J. Luzinski, who serves as
chief restructuring officer.  Kurtzman Carson Consultants LLC
serves as the Debtor's claims and noticing agent.  In its
petition, the Debtor estimated $10 million to $50 million in both
assets and debts.

An official committee of unsecured creditors has been appointed in
the case, and is represented by Segall Gordich, P.A.  The
Committee tapped Soneet Kapila, CPA, and the firm of Kapila &
Company as its financial advisor.

Counsel to the Debtor's lender, Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., is
Jonathan Helfat, Esq., at Otterbourg, Steindler, Houston & Rosen,
P.C.  Counsel to Greenspoon Marder, the proposed purchaser, is R.
Scott Shuker, Esq., at Latham, Shuker, Eden & Beaudine, LLP.

The Troubled Company Reporter, on Octt. 17, 2012, reported that the
liquidation of Ruden McClosky PA was completed under a Chapter 11
plan approved in a confirmation order signed by the bankruptcy
judge in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.  The plan provides a 5% recovery
for unsecured creditors, according to the explanatory disclosure
statement.

SILGAN HOLDINGS: S&P Affirms BB- Rating on Sr. Unsecured Debt
-------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said that it has reviewed its recovery and
issue-level ratings on Silgan Holdings Inc. that were labeled as
"under criteria observation" (UCO) after publishing its revised
recovery ratings criteria on Dec. 7, 2016.  With S&P's criteria
review complete, it is removing the UCO designation from these
ratings, revising the recovery ratings on Silgan's secured debt to
'1' from '2', and affirming the issue-level ratings on Silgan's
secured debt.  S&P is also affirming the issue-level ratings on
Silgan unsecured debt.  The recovery rating on the unsecured debt
is unchanged.

Despite a higher recovery rating on Silgan's secured debt, S&P is
affirming the 'BBB-' issue-level rating because S&P now caps issue
ratings for most speculative-grade issuers at 'BBB-', regardless of
our recovery rating.  This change deemphasizes the weight recovery
plays in the up-notching of issue ratings for issuers near the
investment-grade threshold, since recovery is a smaller component
of credit risk when default risk is more remote and because
recovery prospects may be less predictable and more variable for
these issuers.  Importantly, this revision does not reflect a
change in S&P's assessment of the company's default risk, which is
indicated by S&P's corporate credit rating, or S&P's opinion of
recovery given default, which is indicated by its recovery
ratings.

These rating actions stem solely from the application of S&P's
revised recovery criteria and do not reflect any change in its
assessment of the corporate credit ratings for issuers of the
affected debt issues.

SINCLAIR'S RESTAURANT: Wants to Use IRS Cash Collateral
-------------------------------------------------------
Sinclair's Restaurant, LLC seeks authorization from the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of Missouri, to cash
collateral.

The Debtor's proposed Budget provides for disbursements in the
aggregate total amount of $292,768, which the Debtor anticipates to
incur in the operation of its restaurant at 1402 NW Highway 7, Blue
Springs, Missouri within a 6-month period from January 2017 through
June 2017.  

The Debtor believes that at the time of the Debtor's bankruptcy
filing, it had cash and bank balances account receivables of
approximately $10,000.

The Debtor is indebted to both the Internal Revenue Service and to
MCA Ventures, LLC dba CapAssist, however, the Debtor has not found
any record of any filed lien for the benefit of MCA Ventures and
thus, MCA Ventures will be treated as an unsecured creditor.

While Debtor has not fully analyzed the IRS liens, the Debtor
believes that the IRS holds duly perfected liens on Debtor's
accounts receivable.

The Debtor proposes to provide the IRS with a replacement lien in
post-petition accounts, accounts receivable, and inventory to the
extent that use of cash collateral results in any decrease in the
aggregate value of the IRS' liens on the Debtor's property on the
Petition Date.

SMARTHEAT INC: Recurring Losses Raise Going Concern Doubt
---------------------------------------------------------
Smartheat Inc. filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange
Commission its quarterly report on Form 10-Q, disclosing a net loss
of $2.78 million on $138,047 of net sales for the three months
ended March 31, 2016, compared to a net loss of $37.80 million on
$108,765 of net sales for the same period in 2015.

The Company's balance sheet at March 31, 2016, showed total assets
of $7.07 million, total liabilities of $9.64 million, and a
stockholders' deficit of $2.57 million.

The Company has incurred significant recurring losses from
operations in the past several years, including a net loss from
continuing operations of $1.10 million for the three months ended
March 31, 2016.  In addition, the Company recognized a loss of
$2.08 million from the 85% equity interest sale on SmartHeat
Germany.  These conditions raise a substantial doubt about the
Company's ability to continue as a going concern.  However, since
demand in China for heat pump products is increasing, the Company
will put more resources and efforts to grow its heat pump business
after completing the operational restructuring due to disposing of
its PHE business.  The Company expects to be able to obtain
necessary bank loans for expanding the HP business.

STONE ENERGY: Deal Gives Shareholders Plan Ballots, 5% of New Stock
-------------------------------------------------------------------
In response to a motion filed by an ad hoc group of stockholders,
Stone Energy Corporation engaged in discussions and, on Dec. 21,
2016, agreed to a resolution with the Stockholder Ad Hoc Group with
respect to the issues raised in the Equity Committee Motion.  The
Settlement contemplates that Stone's First Amended Joint
Prepackaged Plan of Reorganization that was filed on Dec. 14, 2016,
would be amended.

On Dec. 28, 2016, the Company amended the Existing Plan and filed
the Second Amended Joint Prepackaged Plan of Reorganization of
Stone Energy Corporation and Its Debtor Affiliates Under Chapter 11
of the Bankruptcy Code, dated Dec. 28, 2016.  The Second Amended
Plan provides that, among other things, Stone's existing
stockholders will be entitled to vote to accept or reject the
Second Amended Plan and, subject to certain conditions, will
receive their pro rata share of (i) 5% of reorganized Stone's
common stock, compared to 4% as contemplated by the Existing Plan,
and (ii) warrants for ownership of 15% of reorganized Stone's
common equity with an exercise price equal to a total equity value
of the reorganized Company that implies a 100% recovery of
outstanding principal to the Company's noteholders plus accrued
interest through the Second Amended Plan's effective date less the
face amount of the New Secured Notes and the Prepetition Notes Cash
(as those terms are defined in the Second Amended Plan), and which
may be exercised any time prior to the fourth anniversary of the
Second Amended Plan's effective date, compared to 10% as
contemplated by the Existing Plan.  In the event that the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas enters an order
prior to the effective date of the Second Amended Plan appointing
any official committee of equity security holders pursuant to
Section 1102 of the Bankruptcy Code, the common stock to be
distributed to Stone's existing stockholders will be reduced to 4%
and the warrants will be exercisable for 10% of reorganized Stone's
common stock.  In addition, under the Second Amended Plan, no
common stock or warrants will be distributed to any existing
stockholder that (a) votes to reject the Plan and elects to not
consent to the voluntary releases contained in the Plan or (b)
objects to, delays, impedes, or takes any other action to interfere
with the consummation of the Second Amended Plan.  The Second
Amended Plan remains subject to approval by the Court.  The Court
has previously determined that it would consider the confirmation
of the Second Amended Plan on Feb. 14, 2017.

STONE ENERGY: Unsecureds To Recover 100% Under Plan
---------------------------------------------------
Stone Energy Corporation and its domestic subsidiaries filed with
the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas a
disclosure statement dated Nov. 17, 2016, for joint prepackaged
plan of reorganization.

The Debtors commenced solicitation after extensive discussions over
the past several months with certain of their key creditor
constituencies.  As a result of these negotiations, the Debtors
entered into a Restructuring Support Agreement, dated as of October
20, 2016, as amended on November 4, 2016, November 9, 2016, and
November 15, 2016, with certain creditors holding (i) the Debtors'
7.5% Senior Notes due 2022, and (ii) the Debtors' 1.75% Senior
Unsecured Convertible Notes due 2017.  The Consenting Noteholders
hold, in the aggregate, approximately 85.4% of the aggregate
outstanding amount of the Prepetition Notes Claims.

The Restructuring proposed by the Debtors will provide substantial
benefits to the Debtors and all of their stakeholders, including,
without limitation, the following:

   * The Restructuring will leave the Debtors' business intact and
substantially de-levered, providing for the permanent reduction of
at least a net $850 million of debt and a net $46 million of annual
cash interest expense as a result of the extinguishment of the $775
million Senior Notes and $300 million Convertible Notes offset by
the issuance of $225 million of New Secured Notes upon the
completion of the Restructuring. This deleveraging will enhance the
Debtors' long-term growth prospects and competitive position and
allow the Debtors to emerge from their chapter 11 cases as
reorganized entities better positioned to withstand depressed oil
and natural gas prices.

   * In addition, the Restructuring will allow the Debtors'
management team to focus on operational performance and value
creation. A significantly improved balance sheet will enable the
Reorganized Debtors to pursue value-creating development and
exploration associated with the Pompano platform rig and
exploration prospects. Furthermore, by enhancing their capital
structure, the Debtors will have the ability to accelerate drilling
activity if prices recover.

   * Moreover, the Restructuring proposed under the Plan provides
recoveries to all of the Debtors' stakeholders. The Plan provides
for a recovery to each class of Claims and Interests (for those
Holders who do not affirmatively elect to opt out of the releases
provided under the Plan) in the form of cash, notes, stock,
warrants, or a combination thereof.  Distributions of equity in the
Reorganized Debtors will allow certain stakeholders to participate
in potential future upside in the Reorganized Debtors. The proposed
Restructuring has the additional benefit of ensuring that
management remains highly committed to the future of the
Reorganized Debtors.

Class 2 Prepetition Banks Claims are impaired.  If Class 2 votes in
favor of the
Plan, (a) the Consenting Banks will receive on account of the
Prepetition Banks Claims held by the Consenting Banks, including
obligations relating to issued but
undrawn letters of credit under the Prepetition Credit Agreement,
(i) their Pro Rata share of commitments, and obligations owing to
the Holders with respect to outstanding loans, under the Amended
Credit Agreement and (ii) their Pro Rata share of Prepetition Banks
Cash as a partial repayment of the outstanding loans subject to
reborrowing
pursuant to the terms of the Amended Credit Agreement and (b) the
Holders of Prepetition Banks Claims other than the Consenting Banks
will receive their Pro Rata share of the obligations owing to the
Holders with respect to the New Senior Secured Term Loans, provided
that the obligations owing to the Holders of Prepetition Banks
Claims with respect to issued but undrawn letters of credit under
the Prepetition Credit Agreement will remain outstanding and be
cash collateralized in an amount equal to 102% of the face amount
thereof.

If Class 2 votes against the Plan, the Holders of Prepetition Banks
Claims, including any Consenting Banks, will each receive their Pro
Rata share of the obligations owing to the Holders with respect to
the New Senior Secured Term Loans, provided that the issued but
undrawn letters of credit under the Prepetition Credit Agreement
will remain outstanding and be cash collateralized in an amount
equal to 102% of the face amount thereof.

Class 3 Prepetition Notes Claims are impaired.  Holders of
Prepetition Notes Claims will receive their Pro Rata share of (i)
the Prepetition Notes Cash, (ii) 85% of the net cash proceeds
received by the Debtors from the Appalachia Sale in excess of $350
million, if any, (iii) the New Secured Notes, and (iv) the number
of shares of New Common Stock constituting 95% of the shares of New
Common Stock to be issued and outstanding pursuant to the Plan on
the Effective Date, prior to dilution for the Management Equity
Incentive Program and the New Warrants.

Class 4 General Unsecured Claims is unimpaired under the Plan.
Holders of Class 4 General Unsecured Claims are presumed to have
accepted the Plan, and therefore holders of General Unsecured
Claims are not entitled to vote to accept or reject the Plan.
Except to the extent that a holder of a General Unsecured Claim
agrees to less favorable treatment, in full and final satisfaction,
settlement, release and discharge of and in exchange for each
General Unsecured Claim, on or as soon as practicable after the
Effective Date or when obligation becomes due in the ordinary
course of business in accordance with applicable law or the terms
of any agreement that governs General Unsecured Claim, whichever is
later, each holder of a General Unsecured Claim will be paid in
full in cash, or otherwise receive treatment as to render the
holder unimpaired; provided, however, that no holder of a General
Unsecured Claim will receive any distribution for any claim which
has previously been satisfied pursuant to a final court order of
the Court.

All consideration necessary for the Reorganized Debtors to make
payments or distributions pursuant to the Plan will be obtained
from the proceeds of the Appalachia sale or other cash from the
Debtors, including Cash from business operations.  Further, the
Debtors and the Reorganized Debtors will be entitled to transfer
funds between and among themselves as they determine to be
necessary or appropriate to enable the Reorganized Debtors to
satisfy their obligations under the Plan.  Except as set forth in
the Plan, any changes in intercompany account balances resulting
from the transfers will be accounted for and settled in accordance
with the Debtors' historical intercompany account settlement
practices and will not violate the terms of the Plan.

Holders of approximately 85.4% in outstanding principal amount of
the Prepetition Notes Claims have already agreed to vote in favor
of the Plan.

The Disclosure Statement is available at:

           http://bankrupt.com/misc/txsb16-36390-19.pdf

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on Dec. 20, 2016, the
Debtors had filed voluntary petitions under Chapter 11 of the
Bankruptcy Code to pursue a pre-packaged plan of reorganization in
accordance with its previously announced comprehensive balance
sheet restructuring efforts.  Under that plan, noteholders will
receive their pro rata share of (a) $100 million of cash, (b) 96%
of the common stock in reorganized Stone and (c) $225 million of
new 7.5% second lien notes due 2022.

STRINGER FARMS: Intends to Use Wells Fargo Cash Collateral
----------------------------------------------------------
Stringer Farms, Inc. and Charles Blake Stringer seek authorization
from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Texas
to use cash collateral.

Mr. Stringer is the sole shareholder of Stringer Farms, Inc., or
SFI, which operates a fully irrigated farm covering approximately
2,600 acres in Moore County, Texas.  Pursuant to a recent
appraisal, the SFI Farmland has a fair market value of
approximately $10 million.  The SFI Farmland is encumbered by a
first lien held by Zions First National Bank which secures payment
of a Promissory Note with an outstanding balance of approximately
$3.75 million.
  
Mr. Stringer also owns an additional real estate in Moore County,
Texas covering approximately 4,000 acres.  Pursuant to a recent
appraisal, the Stringer Farmland has a fair market value of
approximately $14.8 million.  The Stringer Farmland is encumbered
by a first lien held by Zions Bank which secures payment of a
Promissory Note with an outstanding balance of approximately $6.1
million.  Mr. Stringer also operates a 39-acre feed lot in Moore
County, TX through his interests in Dos Ex Partnership, LP.  

The Debtors seek authorization to use cash collateral to pay for
and fund all costs and expenses incurred in the ordinary course of
their businesses, including utilities, payroll and costs associated
with maintaining the Debtors' cattle and crops in the ground, and
in connection with or related to the administration of their
Chapter 11 cases in accordance with the cash budget.  

The Debtors' proposed cash budget provides for a total cash outflow
of $118,751 for the period commencing from December 23, 2016
through January 6, 2017.

The Debtors contend that if they are unable to obtain the immediate
use of cash, they risk immediate and irreparable harm to the value
of their businesses, their bankruptcy estates, and a significant
portion of Wells Fargo's alleged Collateral.

The Debtors relate that the farming operations of their respective
Farmlands, as well as Dos Ex's Feed Lot operations, were financed
by loans made to Mr. Stringer by Wells Fargo, National Association,
as follows:

      (a)  First Wells Fargo Note in the original principal amount
of $2 million;

      (b) Second Wells Fargo Note in the original principal amount
of $2.2 million;

      (c) Third Wells Fargo Note in the original principal amount
of $5 million; and

      (d) Mr. Stringer is also indebted to Wells Fargo pursuant to
a WellsOne Commercial Card Agreement.  

Pursuant to a Commercial Guaranty, SFI guaranteed payment of each
of the Wells Fargo Notes and Mr. Stringer's debt under the Card
Agreement.

Wells Fargo alleges that it possesses perfected security interests
in and liens on various personal property of the Debtors including
all: accounts and other rights to payment of every kind; inventory;
equipment; documents of title; and farm products, and all supplies
and feed used in the Debtor's farming operations, to secure payment
of the Wells Fargo Notes, the debt pursuant to the Card Agreement
and SFI's obligations pursuant to the Guaranty.

Accordingly, the Debtors propose to grant Wells Fargo with
replacement liens on property acquired by the Debtors post-petition
which is of the same nature, kind and character as Wells Fargo's
alleged pre-petition collateral, with such replacement liens having
the same priority, validity, force and effect as the liens they
replace.

The Debtors also propose to grant Wells Fargo an administrative
expense claim up to the amount of the diminution of the value of
Wells Fargo's collateral that is not fully replaced by the
replacement liens.  In addition, the Debtors will maintain
insurance on Wells Fargo's pre-petition and post-petition
collateral.

Via Moreno, Laguna Niguel, CA.

Joshua Katz, Gary Katz and Marta Katz, individuals unrelated to the

$410,000.

connection with the sale of the Property.

Agreement.

overbid.

   (3) Any successful overbidder must be able to close by the
Proposed Closing Date, or upon the Court's approval whichever is
later.

   (4) Any party wishing to overbid on the Property during the
hearing on the Motion must contact the Debtor's counsel at least 48
hours prior to the hearing and provide evidence of available
financial resources such as funds and/or proof of ability to
finance to Debtor's Counsel up to the overbidder's maximum bid to
the Debtor's reasonable satisfaction.

   (5) Any overbidder wishing to overbid on the Property during the
hearing must also submit, before the time of the hearing, a deposit
for the purchase of the Property, by cashier's check or other cash
equivalent in the amount of at least $10,000.00 made payable to
"LAW OFFICES OF LIONEL GIRON CLIENT TRUST ACCOUNT."  The successful
overbidder's deposit will be applied towards the purchase of the
Property, and will not be refunded in the event the overbidder
cannot successfully close escrow pursuant to the terms of the sale
as proscribed herein.

   (6) If a broker brings a prospective bidder who is ultimately
the successful bidder and to whom the sale is approved, the broker
will share in the commission on the terns set forth in the Purchase
Agreement.

ULTRA PETROLEUM: Sr. Creditors Seek Ch. 11 Trustee Appointment
--------------------------------------------------------------
The ad hoc committee of unsecured creditors or the Senior Creditor
Committee of Ultra Resources, Inc., asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court
for the Southern District of Texas to enter an order directing the
appointment of a Chapter 11 Trustee for Ultra Petroleum Corp., et
al., or in the alternative, appoint an independent directors to the
board of Ultra Resources, Inc.

The Debtors are an oil and natural gas exploration and production
company, which is publicly held at Holdco. The value of the
Debtors' enterprise is concentrated almost entirely in Opco, while
Holdco has no material assets other than its equity interests in
Opco.

According to the Motion, the Senior Creditor Committee has been
urging the Debtors to pursue a restructuring strategy based on the
respective legal rights of its creditor constituencies, while
allowing for a quick exit that would preserve the Debtors' going
concern value. Any such restructuring would need to recognize the
structural seniority of claims against Opco, where the Debtors'
primary assets reside. Opco's only board members are Messrs.
Michael D. Watford and Garland R. Shaw -- both of whom are also
officers and significant equity holders at Holdco. Not only do
these board members stand to profit generously from the transfer of
value to equity holders but, worse still, the Plan Support
Agreement (PSA) and the Debtors' "joint" plan of reorganization
reflect that they will receive record breaking compensation in
their capacities as officers of both Holdco and Opco.

The Motion further suggests that before these cases progress
further, a Chapter 11 Trustee must be appointed with the sole
decision of making authority with respect to Opco or, in the
alternative, the Debtors must appoint at least three independent,
disinterested directors to Opco's Board, with full and sole
authority to negotiate a plan of reorganization for Opco.

WERTHAN PACKAGING: Hires Resurgence Financial's Murphey as CRO
--------------------------------------------------------------
Werthan Packaging, Inc., seeks authorization from the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Middle District of Tennessee to employ
Gary M. Murphey of Resurgence Financial Services, LLC as their
Chief Restructuring Officer.

Werthan, based in White House, TN, is a supplier of multiwall paper
packaging for the pet food industry. This sixth generation company
has been an important part of the fabric of Nashville business
since the late 1860s. At its height the company employed over 1,200
people at its long-standing home in North Nashville.

In 2010 the company began its move to a modern 184,000 sq. ft.
facility in White House, Tennessee. During 2016, the company
installed a new 10-color flexographic press, and was awarded the
Safe Quality Food (SQF) certification. With these initiatives
accomplished, the nearly 100 associates of the upgraded company
expected to grow its paper packaging business, as well as introduce
plastic packaging and packaging for human food into its product
mix.

Unfortunately, Werthan's business did not expand as quickly as
hoped, and on September 20, 2016, the Debtor engaged Gary Murphey
and his company, Resurgence Financial Services, LLC, as Chief
Restructuring Officer of the Debtor to assist with possible
financing sources and possibly run a sale process for the Debtor's
assets.

The Debtor will compensate at these hourly rates:

       Gary Murphey            $350
       Murphey's Staff         $200

Additionally, as provided for in the Agreement, RFS will be paid a
transaction fee for the proposed asset sale. That fee is calculated
as follows: (8) 5% of first $1 million, (ii) 4% of second $1
million, (iii) 3% of the third $1 million and (iv) 2% of proceeds
thereafter.

The Debtor paid an initial retainer to RFS in the amount of
$25,000, which will be applied to RFS's final invoice.

Gary M. Murphey, managing director of Resurgence Financial
Services, LLC, 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 Debtor and
its estates.

WESTMORELAND COAL: Enters Into Substitute Energy Purchase Pact
--------------------------------------------------------------
Westmoreland Coal Company, via its Westmoreland Partners
subsidiary, entered into a Substitute Energy Purchase Agreement
that amends the Consolidated Power Purchase and Operating Agreement
for Roanoke Valley Units 1 and 2 with Virginia Electric and Power
Company, operating in North Carolina as Dominion North Carolina
Power for the provision to sell exclusively to Dominion North
Carolina Power all of the Facility's net electrical output and
dependable capacity from the Facility.

Beginning March 1, 2017, the Amending Agreement adjusts the
Substitute Energy and Capacity Purchase Price terms, replacing the
latter with a Fixed Payment and other scheduled pricing through the
end of the Term.  On the Actual Deactivation Date, as such term is
defined in the Amending Agreement, the Consolidated Agreement will
automatically terminate and be superseded by the Amending
Agreement.  After that time, the Company will not be obligated to
operate the Facility in order to fulfill its contracted energy and
capacity requirements.

Moody's Investors Service at the end of February 2016 downgraded
the ratings of Westmoreland, including its corporate family rating
to 'Caa1' from 'B3'.

Standard & Poor's Ratings Services in March 2016 affirmed its 'B'
corporate credit rating on Westmoreland and revised the rating
outlook to "negative" from "stable".  "The negative outlook
reflects weaker-than-expected liquidity as a result of a
combination of exposure to a lower price environment and
difficult-to-secure favorable new volume commitments," said
Standard & Poor's credit analyst Vania Dimova.

[*] S&P Revises Ratings on Health Care Equipment/Life Sciences Cos.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said that it has reviewed most of its recovery
and issue-level ratings in the U.S. health care equipment and life
sciences sector for speculative-grade corporate issuers that were
labeled as "under criteria observation" (UCO) after publishing its
revised recovery ratings criteria on Dec. 7, 2016.  With S&P's
criteria review complete, it is removing the UCO designation from
these ratings and are revising issue-level and recovery ratings as
appropriate.

This release pertains to rated companies in the U.S. health care
equipment and life sciences sector.  The ratings list below is
arranged alphabetically by issuer and identifies the debt
instruments with ratings changes.

As an overview, S&P is revising the issue-level ratings on five
rated debt issues in the U.S. health care equipment and life
sciences sector, reflecting two upgrades and three downgrades.  In
all but one case, the revision to the issue-level rating resulted
from a revision to the recovery rating on the debt instrument.

In the remaining case, the recovery ratings on the secured debt are
unchanged and the issue-level change is because S&P now caps issue
ratings at 'BBB-' for issuers rated 'BB' and 'BB+', regardless of
S&P's recovery ratings.  This change deemphasizes the weight
recovery plays in up-notching issue ratings for issuers near the
investment-grade threshold, since recovery is a smaller component
of credit risk when default risk is more remote and because
recovery prospects may be less predictable and more variable for
these issuers.  This revision does not reflect a change in S&P's
assessment of the company's default risk, which is indicated by its
corporate credit rating, or our opinion of recovery given default,
which is indicated by S&P's recovery ratings.

In addition, S&P is revising the recovery rating to '3' from '4' on
three rated debt instruments in the U.S. health care equipment and
life sciences sector, as a result of S&P's new criteria.  Since
these revisions do not result in issue-level ratings changes, S&P
is affirming the issue-level ratings for the affected issues.

These rating actions stem solely from the application of S&P's
revised recovery criteria and do not reflect any change in our
assessment of the corporate credit ratings for issuers of the
affected debt issues.

                            *********

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.
